Some of the state papcra aro trying to
defend the action of tho managers of the
state fair in having their printing done
in Cincinnati. One newspaper as a sort
of clincher says the managers "saved"
$80 by having tho work done there. Ob,
very well then. If "saving" is the order
of tho day there aro a good many news
paper men in the stato who will "save"
the dollars they would pay compositors
in advertising and favorably noticing the
fnir. If a man wants to cet tho saving
business down real fine ho should die and
then his expenses would entirely cease.
The st?to fair managers made a big mis
take in sending to Cincinnati for their
work and for eTery dollar they "saved"
they lost $100.
A competent girl can hear of a good
situation by applying to B. B. Franklin,
next door to Astoria office.
The following is taken from yester
Pocrr Rkyus, Aug. 23. The two pur
vivors of the wrecked bark Haddington
shire are now being cared for here at tho
ranch of Mr. Reiuhold. Wm. Murray,
16 vears of age, the Scotch apprentico
lad "on the Haddingtonshire, tells the fol
lowing interesting story of the disaster:
"Wo left Astoria July -1 with a full car
go and twenty-one souls on board. We
had a fair run south for three weeks un
til one day, whcntwelvo degrees north of
the line, we were struck by a squall,
which threw us clean on our beam.
When we struck we had all our sails set
but the rovals. It was two hours before
tho vessel righted. While she lay on her
side, Simon Johnson, tho carpenter, and
August Anderson and Thomas Ros3, able
seamen, were washed overboard. The
next morning we found the second mate,
Wm. Curtis, dead on the deck, killed by
something which struck him during the
squall. Our starboard lifeboat 'was
smashed, tho sails all torn, tho starboard
forecastle all washed away and tho cap
tam'achronometer and sextants smashed.
The cantain cave orders to coino about
for San Francisco. Wo had a good run I
up, guessing our reckoning and looking
out for laud the last four days. Wednes
day there were lookouts alolt and on
deck. Wednesday night at eight bells
when Hans, tho man who was saved with
me, came below ho said he would not run
four hours more, no knew we were near
ing land by the change in tho color of
V.si . Aw Anvtnn 4Un 11 rl'hn Qlllr
thought he was joking. I went on watch
then. It was roach and very foggy.
At two o'cloci Thursday morning 1 was
heaving tho log from tho poop deck. We
were making eight knots, with every
thing set but the royals, and our foghorn
blowing. The deep sea lead had just
been brought.on dcok at 2,03 o'clock, when
tho lookout called eut:
and the bow forward of tho forecastle.
No part of the rigging could be seen and
only tho ragged stumps of tho masts.
The vards and all the rigging had been
carried overboard. Tho ships bow
points northward and her port ado leans
toward tne shore. The midships aro
carried away, and in fact the whole ves
BBOKEH TO TIECES,
And there is no chance of any part of
her being saved. The salmon, I think,
arc also lost, as some COO cases havo
floated ashore and havo been piled up
along the beach. Tho cans being air
tight were so heavy that the weight
bursted the bottom out of all the floating
cases and tho tin3 sank, while tho cases
aro being washed ashore. Large quanti
ties of flour are strewn along the sands.
I think that considerable of tho flour
can be saved, as tho water dots nt pen
etrate sacks more than a quarter of en
inch. Wo could not communicate with
tho shore and consequently could learn
nothing beyond what I havo stated."
A later dispatch from Point Reyes says:
All that is visible of tho bark Hadding
tonshire is a few feet of the bow and
stern. The vessol is broken in two parts,
and from the open ends whero she broke
and separatod, the sea is washing out

flour. She lies in tho breakers, and what

She went aground on a shelvinc. sandy
bottom, 100 yards from tho shore, five
miles north of Point Reyes light house.
The ranchers thereabouts call tne oroau
white strip of beach there North Beach.
It belongs to the ranch of Peter W. Rein
hold. For miles along the beach the
white sands aro dotted with stacks of
bagged flour and boxed salmon, carried
up by tho wreckers, while the water's
edge is fringed with bales of broken
boxes and bags of flour, the latter too
much damaged to bo saved, looking like
prodigious dumplings. This evening a
crowd of tho neighborhood ranchars re

ho was asked where ho lived.
"In Glasgow, with my undo and aunt,"
"This will bo happ'news to them."
"No, sir," tho boy answered, tsars
springing to hi3 eyes for tho first tinio
during his story. "My cousin, their son,
was lost with tho ship."
Tho story of Hans Markuson is much
the same as that of tho boy's. Murku
son was below and felt tho vessel pitch
suspiciously. Ho ran on deck and asked
the mate if ho had seen a light.
Tho mate said, "Yes, a flash light,"

Mr. Reinhold says that Markuson was
insensible when found on the boach. air.
Reinhold after caring for tho survivors,
notified the neighbors and then rode to
Olema and telephoned to San Francisco,
so that, as ho says, everyone would know
of the wreck.

"Wo aro going to keep him here a

"Well," said the boy, looking out on
tho rough, foggy ocean, then back to his
cheerful surroundings, "I was thinking I
havo had enough of tho sea for a while,

drove the vessel up the gulf. On tho

Ono of tho crew died on tho passaee and
the master had a very narrow escape, as
for over three weeks ho was lying at

in the case of tho Star of Erin and tho

On the up trip of the Columbia just
before arriving at tho mouth of the river,
a schooner was seen bearing down upon
the steamer with all sails set. Owing to
the smoke or fog neither vessel sighted
tho other until they wero close together,
and for a few moments a collision was
imminent. Both vessels hovo thoir
helms hard down and a disastrous catas
