A f ew days ago whon Capt. DalgarJno

tho eye by a bit of flying debris. Since
then ho has had lots of fun telling how
ho was slugged by so and so, always tell

many were mystified as to tho causa of
the magnificent mansard roof eroded
over one of his peepers. Capt. Harry
Taylor who gets "how-come-you-so" once

in that fix and had a quarrel there.
Next daj', on sobering up, ho noticed
Del's eye and inquired about it, where
upon ho was told that it was ho who did
it while ho was drunk. Being truly pen

at onco went to Waterman & Katz' and
bought a now dress for Mrs. Dalgarduo.

Thogjvernmont engineers in their re
port on an examination of Nehalem bay
and river, recommend that no improve
ment be attempted by tho government.
They say: "Enough is known of Neha
eom bar to conclude that it is too shoal
for easy crossings by tho smaller class of
coasters. Works or contraction would
probably give a channel of required depth
and stability for these vessels. But it
does not appear that tho least cost of tho
improvement work is warranted by tho
traffic of the region in its present stata of
development. The entrance to Nehalem
bay and river is not now worthy of im
provement." lion Would Afctortu Do!
Tho ship Harmonia arrived in this
port July 31, thirty-seven days from Yo
kohama. Her voyago is of particular in
terest, on account of its demonstrating
tho relative value of San Francisco and
Tacoma as points of shipment for goods
in transit for tho east. Tho ship Isabella
was in xokohama, loaded with tea, when
tho Harmonia began to load, yet tho
latter's cargo, consisting of 31.000 pack
ages was in Chicago before tho Isabella
had reached Tacoma. Tho Northern Pa

Martin Foard has had in his employ
for somo timo past a Chinaman named
Jim Brown. About four weeks ago Mr.
Foard missed thirty dollars in coin from
a bureau drawer at his residence. Ho
paid little attention to his loss, however,
until last Sunday evening, when ho
missed twenty dollars more from the
samo place. His suspicions were then
fastened on Jim Brown and he notified
Chief Loughrey of his loss. Jim was ar
rested in a Chinese gambling don by Of
ficer Ostedt. Ho was taken to jail and
searched and fifty dollars in coin was
found in his possession. His room being
searched a quantity of silk handkerchiefs,
towels, Jac8, etc., were found in his bag

"THE r-RIVATK SECnETARY' C03IXG.
There is a whole evening of laughter in
"Iho Private Secretary" as presented by
tho Mcdiscn-squaro Theater company.
If there is any fault in the work it is a
superabundanco of comical situations,
but it is constructed by a skillful hand
upon a trustworthy dramatic model, and
the result is moro genuine satisfaction
than is generally derived from the farcial
comedies of the day. Tho story is hardly
worth the telling except as it is told in
in tho play. In a word it deals with tho
mental and physical contortions of n
parson who, going to fill an engagment
private secretary to n country gentleman,
is mislod by two frolicsome young men.
and in pursuance of their mischievous
plans is successively taken for the nephew
of a testy old bachelor, a burglar and a
spiritual medium. Ono of the young men
meanwhile plays his pranks in tho guise
of the privato secretary and raises tho
mischief generally with tho men and
women gathered in a country house. Mr.
W. H Gilletto in the title role presents a
very strong bit of characterization, en
dowed with real originality of conception
nnd finished to a high degree. His very
appearance is laughter provoking, and
anything more ludicrous than his sepul
chral enunciation J md gawky movements
can hardly bo imagined. His efforts are
fitly supplemented by Mr. Kennedy's
equal artistic delineation of the choleric
old uncle, and other capable people in
Iho cast contribute to a popular success
which will be received here with tho samo
favor as elsewhere. A full cast from the
Madison-squaro Theatre, including "W.
H. Gillette and M. A. Kennedy, are an
nounced to appear hero on Aug. 17. The
' Rajah" will be produced on August 18.

Tli? Keasoa Why.
The Standard says that a largo surplus
of butter, tho genuino article, has accum
ulated in tho hands of tho wholesale
merchants here, which accounts for tho
low prico of that article. Tho reason of
the accumulation is that oleomargarine
can be bought for six to eight cents per
pound, leaving a larger pro lit thau buttor
would give. Tho dairy lay will bring
butter back to a good pfico this coming
fall and winter, but it is thought the
prico will never bo a3 high again as it
