A Card From Captain Scott.
Astoria, Or., Julv 20, 18SS.
Editor Astekian: There has been
so much said about the Potter and
tho Telephone racing that I feel
called upon to deny that there has
been any race, as we are rnn
nint? for rorrnlar business. But
if tho manacera of the Potter
are anxious to satisfy the public
which is the fastest boat, I am willing
to make a run for time, and will run
the same day, and start ono half hour
before or one halt hour later. The
old Telephonejaa the best record of
any boat on the coast, and the new
one can beat her on tne same water,

A DEADLY EXPLOSION.
Seven of a Steamboat's Crew Killed.
Terrible SnUerLig of the Unfortunate Men,
(special to the astobian.)
Louisville, July 20. A tug boat
convoy blew up twenty-sis miles
above here this morning. Seven men
were killed. The explosion of tho
steam pipe that supplied the engine
from the boiler caused the catastro
phe. The most of the men were alseep
at the time. The victims were Wm.
Page, AVm. Harrington, Bobt. Jones,
Wm. Bigley, Charles Luster, George
McCann and AVm. Kelly. They all
oeiong in rittsburg or near by .Penn
When tbe boat reached Westport
everything, according to the first
mate's story, was running smoothly.
When they were two miles above
Westport suddenly there was an ex
plosion, the boat becoming enveloped
in steam and all the machinery
stopped. Captain Bichardson hur
riedly dressed, called the survivors
abont him and made preparations to
land. After the boat had been towed
ashore, the captain proceeded to the
after cabin where the explosion oc
curred. Page lay near tho door, the
blood rushing from his month and
ears aud the flesh was scalded off his
body. McCann and Harrington were
in their berths. Death to each must
have been instantaneous, for thev lav
in the same position as when they re
tired, Jones was on the floor and
barely alive. He was horribly burned
and lived but fifteen minutes, dying
with his wife's name upon his lips.
Bigley also still lived when found,
bnt died in ten minutes. Luster
was discovered outside the cabin
lying on his face. He was not dead,
and told them that ho had run out
mere as soon as ho could recover
from the shock of tho explosion. He
was almost baked; his skull was
parched and httlo drops of blood
stood out from all parts of his head.
in two liours ho was dead. Ivel v
was pulledout from under his bunk;
no was alive but nornbly burned.
Chas. Chambers, the only other man
who slept in tho cabin, was blown out
of tho door and hud a miraculous es
cape. Ho was uuscratched, as were
also mato Korns, tho pilot and en
gineer Carr. All the others aboard
perished. Tho officers of the beat
can give no explanation of tho acci
dent, and claim tho machinery was
inspected last Febrnary aud was then
in excellent condition.

judge Deady in the suit of Carrie
Jones against the United States to
compel the defendant to issue a pat
ent to her for a quarter section of
land entered several years aro bv J. "R.
Frierson in Columbia county who paid
3100 for it under the act for the sale
of timber lands in the Pacific states
and assigned his interest to her. The
plaintiff alleges that tbe servants of
the defendant refused to issue the
patent and retained the monev paid.
The court held that the purchaser of
tho land at the land office under the
timber-sale act was tho owner of it.
and that tho United States thereafter
held the bare legal title in trust for
the purchaser, and that this right
was a property right, and the land
department could not arbitrarily
cancel it or set it aside. If it is al
leged that the sale was fraudulently
obtained, the government must go in
to court and bring suit to set aside the
sale, where the purchaser can bo
heard according to tho law of the
land. It must not be decided by fiat
law. The court held that iu the act ot
1887, giving this court jurisdiction
of any claim against the government
not exceeding S10.000, the word
claim included the demand of this
plaintiff to have a patent issued to her,
and did not refer to monov claims

(SPECIAL TO THE ASTOEIAN.)
Wheeling, W.Va.,July 20. Atnoon
to-day the revised estimate of life lost
by flood last night, put tho number
at 25. About 15 bodies have been
found. The loss in money foots up
8150,000. Tho greatest loss of life
was along Wheeling creek, and at
Triudelphia. Further search this
morning resulted in the discovery of a
number of bodies near the latter
place. Moat of them were found
among drift which had colleoted at
Elm Grove. Tho body of Wm. Gas
tien. aged 60, a prominent and
wealthy citizen, was among them.
His wife's remains were found two
miles below. The body of Charles
Caulbell, editor of the Wheeling
News Letter, aged 30, was found
among the driftwood. Mrs, Jane
Fay and her two grown up daughters
were discovered a short distance be
low Triadelphia, and the bodies of
two others named German were
found in the meadow where they had
been buried by the waves.
PROM THE EMERALD ISLE.
Tragic Death of a Needed Witnes3-
(special to the astoman.)
Dublin, July 20. Dr. James Bid
ley, medical officer in attendance at
Tullamore jail during Mr. Mande
ville's incarceration there, and who
was subpoenaed to appear at the in
quest at Michellstown, to inquire into
Mandeville's death, has committed
suicide. Dr. Bidley had been present
at the inquest daily, waiting to be
called to the witness stand, and the
evidence given to show that Mande
yille was subject to ill usage while in
jail, seemed to proy upon his mind.
His suicide has confirmed the popular
belief that Mandeville had been
treated with extreme cruelty by the
firttinz Ready For The Fall Catch.
State fish commissioner E. P.
Thompson has returned from a three
weeks' trip along the Boguo, Co
quille, Umpqua and Siuslaw rivers
and Coos bay. Ho tells the Orego-
man that all the canncrs on those
waters are making preparations to
operate their canneries to full capac
ity in anticipation of a good run.
Fishing will begin between August
1 and 15, continuing until October 20
or November 1.
"Tho cannerymen and fishermen
operating ou all the rivers except
Bogue want hatcheries," continued
Mr. Thompson. "Bogne river has a
hatchery which has been operated
off and on since 1877, and this arti
ficial propagation is accountable for
the three-fold increase in the run.
Bogue river is the only stream on the
Pacific coast which has been fished
continuously for a number of years
and can still bIiow an increased run.
I think we will be able to furnish
each of tho other streams with 500,
000 eggs annually, which will be
taken from the Sacramento river. It
will require ten days to ship the eggs
from Sacramento' to either of the
rivers, and upon arrival there the
fishermen and cannerymen will take
caro of them and turn the young
fish into the river when the hatch
ing is complete. Sacramento salmon
ranks next to Columbia river salmon
iu quality and is superior to the fall
fish in Coos bay or Bogue, Coqnillc,
Umpqua or Siuslaw rivers. All want
hatcheries, but if we can supply
them with eggs right along, hatcher
ies will not be necessary. It would
cost about 32,500 a year to operate a
hatchery on each of the streams.'"
And society, impose many privations
upon the female sex, in the way of dress.
First It is one freak, and then another,
and from the fact, that inauy of tlitm
are unhealthy in the extreme, it is
small wonder that many women
succumb, and that "femalo weak
nesses" are the too frequent result.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription Is the
only positive cure for these complaints
in existence, and thousands of women
can bear witness to its efficacy. "Favorite
Prescription" is a legitimate medicine,
carefully compounded by an experi
enced and skillful physician, and
adapted to woman's delicate organiza
tion. It is the only medicine for women,
sold by druggUts, under a positive
guarautee, from the manufacturers, that
it will give satisfaction in every case or
money will be refunded. This guaran

The Question of the Day.
Editor Astebian: To give our
unenterprising citizens an idea what
other people iu our neighborhood are
doing, tney snouid take a trip to
Ilwaco on the steamer Canby or on
the Portland steamer Potter, look
at the narrow gauge railroad, now
being constructed by the L B. & N.
Co. to Shoalwater bay, and make cal
culations it it would not be profitable
to build such a road to Clatsop beach
and make 3100.000 per year, than to
let business go past onr doors as it is
doing at present, and all tho while
asking ourselves the question, "what
shall we do to make things, livelier."

A lot of wheels, casting?, etc, for

tho freight on the lot amounted to

cast and the freight on it was 87G3.
It would seem that all these things
could be made here for less than the
cost and freight added. Tho Oregon
Iron and Steel company, when once
their works are completed, should be
able to furnish tho wheels and cast
ings, and the woodwork of cars could
be made at some of our lumber man
