A fire alarm at ten o'clock last
night was occasioned by a slight fire
near the boiler in Kinney's cannery
which was promptly extinguished.
The department got there in good
time, but, fortunately their services
were not needed.
Begarding the proposed foot race
between Grant and Bea, in six weeks
time, the backers of tho latter say
that they are going to the Coquille to
pack salmon on the first, and as far
as they're concerned it would be an
impossibility, unless the race was run
in Coos county, a very unlikely event.
A very remarkable criminal case

A San Francisco dispatch says tho
steward of the fishing schooner
Courtney Ford -was recently washed
overboard in Alaskan waters. His
body was recovered and a bank book
allowing deposits to the amount of
813,000 was found on his person. The
mate of the C. C. Funk also shared
iuo name fate about the same place.
A mist rolled in from the sea yes
terday evening and overcoats and
warm clothing felt comfortable. The
cool weather throughout the season'
has been unusually prolonged. It is
noticeable in this connection that
there has been nn almost steady
northwester blowing outside, and
some think that to this wind is due
the continued cool weather.
As the season advances the lumber
business is, if anything, oven brisker.
The demand from southern Cali
fornia parts is something unprece
dented, and every class of vessels is
pressed into the service, and oven
passenger steamers like tho Wil
mington, - now taking lumber from
Gray's Harbor, are in use. On the
Columbia the logging and lumber
business was never brisker, and all
the mills have orders ahead.
At Ross' Opera House To-niuht.
Daniel Sully's new play. Daddy
Nolan, was produced at the opera
house last night, Bays the Milwaukee
Sentinel, where it was very warmly
received. The play is a sequel to
The Corner Grocery, and is built
upon the same model, telling in an
unpretentious way the story of Daddy
Nolan's reduction from affluence to
poverty, through the forgery of his
name by his son, his trials and sor
rows as a poor junkman, and the sub
sequent happiness of all by the son's
return in time to save his father from
prison and replace him in his former
position of independence. The com
edy is bright and full of rollicking
fun. It makes pretensions to noth
ing in the way of exalted literary merit,
but it has a vein, of broad humor
which never descends to coarseness,
and a great deal .of homely
pathos, which one would scarce
ly expect to find in a play
of this class. Tho precocious youth
is there with his- ingenious devilry,
full of mischief and a disposition to
make things hpt for every body with
whom he comes in contact Daddy
Nolan is unohanged by time,alittle less
boisterous, perhaps and toned down
by grief, but in other ways he is the
jolly, good hearted old Irishman,
whose clever work in the old play
kept his audiences roaring with the
heartiest kind of laughter. Mr. Sully
is one of the few Irish comedians
who can act naturally. His Nolan is
a distinctly drawn and neatly exe
cuted bit of charaoter work, full of
light and shade and some very pa
thetio touches. It ranks far above
the farcical attempts at comedy made
by many of our prominent actors and
is really artistic. Eeserved seat3 at the

Iu Brief, And to the Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made the American .people a
nation of dyspeptics.
But Green's August Flower has
done a wonderful work in reforming
this sad business and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.

SEIZURES IN ALASKAN WATERS.
Sax Fbaxcjsco, July 18. By tho
Alaska steamer Dora, which came in
to-day from Ounalaska, information
is received of the seizure of two ves
sels for sailing within the limits pre
scribed by the United States govern
ment. They are the American
schooner Challenge, thirty tons,
from Seattle, and the British steam
schooner Annie Beck, hailing from
Victoria. Both seizures were made
by the United States revenue cutter
Richard Rush, and the yessels and
crews were sent on to Sitka. The
Challenge was taken July 1, in Eks
ten harbor, on Eksten Island. When
overhauled o the Rush no seals
were to be seen, but there was blood
on the deck and other evidences that
the crew had been engaged in seal
ing. The Rush took charge of her,
in spite of the protests of the captain,
who urged that every skin he had was
obtained in open waters of the Pa
cific. Two days later the Annie Beck
was seized near St. Georges, which is
not far from Ounalaska. As in the
case of the Challenge there was blood
on her deck, and the crew appeared
as if they had been hard at it. Her
captain set up a protest and said he
would demand satisfaction from the
British government. He was like
r ; wise sent off to Sitka, where he, as
well as the American captain, will be
math. Adtaa !r ou-
aiasta there was a fleet of twenty

Death of Archbishop Se-lier.
... . , ... ,
iue death of archbishop Seghers
" a ahoc to many wuo knew aad ea
teemed him. A native of Belgium, he
was stationed as a lioman Catholic
priest at Vancouver, where, in 1873,
he was ordained bishop. Alaska was
a part of his diocese and a long and
tedious journey there manifested the
interest he felt in that section. In
1879 he was made coadjutor to the
venerable archbishop Blanchet, of
this stale and in 1831 succeeded that
prelate. In 1884 he resigned his dig
nities that he might go to Alaska as a
missionary, and in 1885 entered upon
his new field. About a year ago ho
started from Victoria for an extended
tour through Alaska. In his party
was a companion and servant named
Frank Fuller, a young man from
Portland. This Fulier murdered the
archbishop on the rooming of No
vember 28th, on the banks of the Yu
kon river, about a hundred miles
from its mouth. The cause of the
murder appears to have been jeal
ousy on the part of the miserablo
man, who in the early morning, after
having slept by the bishop a siue till
night, picked up a rifle and sent a
bullet crashing through his forehead.
The body was taken to St. Mi
chael's, Fuller accompanying it,
where ho was arrested and will bo
taken to Sitka for trial.
A New Whitehall Boat.
Denny Curran was out yesterday
afternoon in a new Whitehall boat,
about twenty feet long, whioh Wm.
Howe has built for the oustom house
service. She is to be called the
Uncle Sam, and is a neat looking
little craft. Her center board is a
little further forward than is custom
ary iu Whitehall boats, and Denny
Curran, who gave her an extended
trial up and down stream yesterday
afternoon, thinks it is considerable of
an improvement, holding her well
in hand and enabling her to hold her
own and a little more with any boat
of similar bnild in the vicinity.

pretenders to medical knowledge havo
weakened tho confidence of tho great
majority of sufferers in all advertised rem
