TOTAL HESTRIICTIOX OF THE K AIMER
Rarneil to the Jround Yesterday Horning.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. A. W. Berry
of this city received a telegram from
Kalama saying that his cannery at
Rainier was burned up. On the arrival
of the afternoon boat it was learned
that a fire broke out in the cannery at
half-past five yesterday morning and in
a short time the structure was entirely
consumed together with the contents.
There was no one in the cannery at the
time, all work having been suspended and
tho watchman being over at Kuappton.
Mr. Berry's loss is about $14,000, on which
there is about $7,000 insurance.
THE ASTORIf AND COAST TRAXSPORTA
TIO.V COMPANY'S XEV STEA3IB0AT.
Work on the new vea3el that the As
toria and Coast Transportation Company
destines for the coast trade, is going on,
and those of our readers who want to
see the lines and model of the finest
steam craft ever built at Astoria will find
it about ready for launching. .
The boat is 123 feet long, 2Gj feet
beam, with 10 feet depth of hold. She
is built in the most thorough and sub
stautial manner throughout, and com
bines beauty of appearance with unusual
streneth of construction. Her builder
J. F. Steffin, who deserves credit for is
excellent work. the
From Captain Babbidge, who found
time yesterday morning to obligingly an
swer u iow questions, it is learneu mat
her foremast is 80 feet, mainmast 81 feet,
foreboom 39 feet, foro gaff 24 feet, main
boom 48 feet, main gaff 25 feet. But it
is on her steam power that the vessel
mostly relies. Jim Fox, who is now busy
putting in and setting up tho machinery,
says that her boilers are built on the
Scotch compound principle, with steel
heads and half inch iron shell, and will
stand a pressuro of 140 pounds to the
square inch; her engines fore and aft,
compound, self-condensing, bilge and air
pumps made of brass, copper pipes
throughout, lead sleeves and brass strain
ers. The engines are 12 and 2t by 20.
There are 23 feet heating surface to the
circular inch of high pressure cylinder,
which is claimed to be one-third more
than usually given. Her shaft is an inch
larger than ordinary, all bearings being
full and long; tho propeller is 8 feet dia
meter, 12 foot pitch, natural screw.
The vessel is a credit to her builders
and owners and deserves liberal patron
age from Astoria and the coast trade.
Sho will probably be launched next Sat
urday. WHAT A RESIDENT OF ASTORIA THINKS
OF ITS FITURE.
1 tell you Astoria is the coming sec
ond great city of the Pacific Northwest,"
said a prominent resident of Astoria to a
News reporter. "You see," ho continued,
"it is a finely situated town of 8,000 in
habitants and has a harbor second to
none on the coast. Those canneries pack
an enormous amount of salmon and they
throw a good deal of money into circula
tion in Astoria that would otherwise go
elsewhere. It is the best American port
from which to run a line of steamers to
China and Japan. All that the people
want is a railroad to Portland. Then
ships can unload at Astoria's docks with
out having to come to Portland and risk
getting stuck on Sand island bar, St.
Helens bar, or any of those places. The
goods could then bo shipped to Portland
which will become the distributing point,
much more so than it is now, of tho
northwest. Besides if any contagions
disease should get into Astoria Columbia
river is a guard to prevent it from get
ting into Washington territory and its
ravages could bo easily confined within
the city. On the other hand, if it should
break out in Portland it would immedi
ately spread to the suburban towns and
strike terror throughout the whole state.
Anyway I think the city by tho Columbia
will have 25,000 inhabitants by 1890, oc
cupying the second place in the great
state of Oregon. What do you think?"
No Fish Ladder.
Hon. Wallace Baldwin, of Corvallis,
fish commissioner for Oregon, ad
vertised a few weeks since for pro
posals for tho erection of a fish lad
der at Oregon City. Several bids were
received, and considerable interest man
ifested in tho enterprise. It was found,
however, that the proposal of tho lowest
responsible bidder was several thousand
dollars in excess of the amount nppro-
Eriated by tho legislature, which it will
e remembered was but $5000. It was
deemed inadvisable to commence the
erection of the ladder and be compelled
to suspend operations us soon as tho ap
propriation was exhausted. It being the
desire of the commissioner to havo erect
ed one that would not only answer every
purpose for the present, but one that
would last for many years to come, and
prove in every detail satisfactory to all
parties directly interested and to the
taxpayers throughout tho state, Mr.
Baldwin concluded to let the matter re3t
and ask the next legislature to appropri
ate a sufficient amount to insure a first
class ladder. Oregonian, C.
A dispatch received from the city
of Mexico states that Charles Ham
ilton, who was implicated in the
murder of I. N. Brown at Carrie Brad
ley's bagnio in this city, wis shot at
1 p. x. last Saturday. Twelve men were
detailed from the company towhichthe
soldier murdered by Hamilton belonged,
to act as his executioners. He died
game, seating himself on his coffin and
refusing to have his eyes bandaged. Six
ol tho rifles were loaded with ball car
tridges and six with blank cartridges.
Six bullets pierced the breast of Hamil
ton and ended the life of a murderous,
black hearted man. Oregonian.G.

THE CITT BTTnE OCLV.
The Progresb of the World' Exposition.
.Some Account of tho Proposed Exhibit.
Nkw Oblkaks, July 27, 18S4. New Or
leans is a peculiar and an attractive city
to strangers. In area it is tho largest city
in the world. There are more long, wide
streets shaded by trees, and the appar
ently level surface makes locomotion by
street cars pleasant and easy. Canal
street is the broadway of the town,
and may properly be said to bo composed
of two streets, with what is called ''nou
tral" ground between them, giving room
for four sets of street car tracks. At a
point not far from the Mississippi river,
on Canal street, one may find street cars
that are run to remote points, five miles
up or an equal distance down along the
river. From Canal street one may take
a steam car to the lake shore resorts
West End and Spanish Fort. These are
famous places of recreatien: each has its
summer theater, presenting nightly
operas, for the delectation of thousands
of sight seers. .
The streets of New Orleans present an
animated appearance this summer. Ca
nal street has the longest chain of elec
tric lights in the world, and when illum
inated at night it opens a charming view
to the promonader. In former times it
was customary to close many business
houses and patiently await tho coming of
fall trade. Merchants of the present
day find that they must be doing busi
ness at all seasons, or thoy will be dis
tanced by their competitors. The con
strnction of the exposition Gives employ
ment to a large number of persons.
Tho first installment of the loan of
1,000,000 advanced by the United States
Government has been received, lhe
money put in circulation by the exposi
tion management helps, not a little, the
prosperity of the citizens at the present
time. Tho swarm of workmen on the
exposition grounds seem to take
in tho work of erecting such enormous
palaces as now adorn tho bank of the
Mississippi just at its crescent curve.
Tho weather all summer has been de
lightful; the cool breezes from the gulf,
about forty miles distant, have added to
the luxury of those who think that this
is by far the pleasantest j lace in which
to pass the warm months. The season
ha3 been so favorablo that the work on
the two chief buildimrs is nearlv com
pleted. From points far down tho river
tho mammoth Main Building presents a
substantial and showy effect, having re
cently been painted a light lilac, that
arrests and rests the eye. Though the
Main Building is larger far than the
chief building of any world's fair hereto
fore held, it has been found insufficient
to meet the calls of exhibitors for space,
therefore, with duo appreciation of the
paternal generosity of the government,
the Board of Management has decided
to erect an additional building for gov
ernmental and state exhibits, the largest
ever planned for that single purpose.
Tho exhibiting nations, which, at pres
ent, claim most attention and attract the
most interest are, France, China, Persia,
and especially Mexico. Mexico appreci
ates her opportunity and has prepared to
grasp it with an appropriation of 200,
000. Not only will her present state of
progress and her future possibilities be
adequately represented, but also her his
tory, from her conquest by Cortez with
the gorgeous, though cruellv crimson
civilization of the Aztecs, will be. diE
played with that regard to detail and
consummato knowledge of stage effect
which has made Prescott's history of
that country the greatest achievement of
The fantastic feather work, the many
colored armor, the strange weapons, the
awful idols and the unique architecture
will bo exhibited on a scale of life-like
and colossal grandeur. As cotton is the
special plant to which tho southern
states of America are indebted for the
bulk of their prosperity, so one plant in
Mexico (the agave Americana) is a par
ticular industry of immense commercial
advantage to the inhabitants. This
Slant, which differs only in climatic con
itions with the common agavo that is a
frequent ornament of New Orleans gar
dens, supplies tho Mexicans with pins
and needles from its sharp thoms, paper
from tho finer grain of its fiber, coarse
thread, house thatch from the rougher
grain, and with its fermented juice a na
tional drink that possesses about tho
acidity of buttermilk, and the elevating
or depressing influence of whisky. This
plant illustrates tho moralist's remark,
"that thorns grow on the tree of intem
perance." Central America will bo represented on
an equally perfect scale. Spanish Hon
duras having applied for permission to
lay out the garden spaoo of her allotment
in a practical map of her territory, show
ing lakes, mountains, volcanoes, rivers,
forests of precious woods, towns, and
railroads, with the exact formation of
soils, grains, grasses and trees in full
growth and luxuriance.
Venezuela and Colombia will likewise
have appropriate representation. In con
trast with these agricultural and horti
cultural countries, the mining states and
territories of the Union- will have
special works of equal significance, such
as miner's cabin and shafts in practical
Another industry, and one of the most
beautiful, will be that of silk, in which
department China, the south of France,

California, will vio with each other for
admiration. Every stage of tho process

Captain Paysou. of the United States
light houso engineering service, started
yesterday for Humboldt to pay off the
men who have been at work at tho site
of the proposed light house at St. George's
Reef off Crescent City. The site is more
exactly known as northwest Seal Bocks
and is about eight miles off shore, and
workmen have made their home in a ves
sel near the rocks. The estimated total
cost of tho lightls $200,000. Congress ap
propriated 50,000 for operations the first
year and 50,000 the next. The sea breaks
over the rock even in summer time. In
winter it is impossible to work.
To get a foothold at first was
a matter of difficulty and danger. The
sharp point of the rock was blasted off,
leaving enough for courses of stone to be
laid upon, and the sides of the rock were
terraced. After operations had proceed
ed thus far and Capt. Payson and sur
veyors had succeeded in getting tho
measurements which they desired to ob
tain, men were set to work in the quar
ries back of Humboldt to dig out the
stone which now forms the base of tho
house. It was dressed in Crescent City and
carried by craft to the reef, where with
great trouble, it was placed in position.
This work occupied tho entire season.
It was supposed that congress, at its last
session, would make an adequate appro
priation to continuo the work. The sum
of 150,000 was asked for, but only 30r
000 were appropriated. It is impossible
to do much on tho lighthouse with this,
and it is feared that tho storms of the
coming winter will wash away all that
has been done. Tho money appropriated
will be expended in continuing to get out
stono at the Humboldt quarries. Only a
part of the force now employed can be
retained. S. F. Bulletin.
