Boats That Have MaueBuBhels of Money
And That Are Still In Active And Pros
So far as passenger accommodations
are concerned, with the exception of a
tri-weekly night boat, Astoria is in the
same condition, regarding communica
tion with Portland; and Portland iain
the same condition, regarding communi
cation with Astoria, that the two cities
were many years ago.
It is now about seven years since Capt.
Scott put on the little Fleetwood. He
just coined money with that little boat.
She cost very little to run, and was al
ways crowded. Then he built the Tele
phone and began running her in March,
1835, butBhe never, proportionately, made
the money the Fleetwood did for him.
Bat she did a-bif trade; and the O. E. &
N. Co. never realized what an enormous
freight business she had been doing, till
that boat was burned two year3 ago, and
the freight for Astoria came piling into
the O. K.-& N. dock at Portland. It as
tonished thflO. B. & N. Co. officials to
see the sudden increase of their business
when the Telephone went off.
Bv the "time Cant. Soott had the Tele
phone mo. 'J ready to run, tne u. Js. a H.
uo. nau made arrangements wnicn nn
ally culminated in a practical resumption
of the old status.
The fiue steamer T. J. Poller goes
off the route on the first of next month,
and the Thompson, Reed and Telephone
will run the winter through.
The Potter is 'about the finest passen-
?er boat on northwestern waters, the
elephone was remarkably well built: is
a new boat and after the tremendous
amount of running she Ijas done, looks
remarkably well. Probably no steam
boat in the Union has such a record;
certainly none on tho river: for so long a
time, without a break or miss, making
two trips a day, six days in the week.
Nothing but tho greatest care and -vigilance
made such a record possible.

In a Second street saloon yesterday a
citizen who was on a tear demanded that
everybody in the place come np and
drink with him. There wero seven men
m thera and six cam a nromntlv to the
bar in response to the call. The seventh
was an old bum who was half asleep, and
tho man with the red paint slapped him
oh the back and yelled:
. "Do you intend to insult me?'
"Then como up and drink with me!"
"Don't want any."
"But you've got to drink or fight,
which is it?"
"I I guess Til drink, but I've got a
headache and don't want it."
"No matter about that-get up here!"
There were six glasses of beer on the
counter waiting and as the old bum got
up he reached for the first and gulped it
down, and then slid along, down the bar
and emptied every glas3 in rotation with
out hardly stopping to breathe. When
he had finished the last ono he turned to
the citizen and said:
"Idon'-t feeLwell.butif you insist on
it Jll take about four fingers of whisky."
It was slow in coming, but like the bug
that has -no wings, it got here iustthe
same. Here it is from yesterday's Port

TOTAL LOSS OP THE FEARLESS.
All on Board Drowned Off the Umpnna
The tug Fearless, Capt. Jas. Hill,
which arrived here last Monday from
Empire City with a lot of Chinamen
from the cannery at that place, left for
Coos Bay last Tuesday morning and ran
on to North spit, at the mouth of the
TTmpqua river that evening, and soon
went to pieces, not one on board escap
ing. At 3 p. si., that day she was seen off
Upper Ten Mile, steaming slowly down
the coast just outside tho breakers, which
wero running very high, and at 6 o'clock
her whistle was heard off tho mouth of the
Umpqun. At a quarter before seven she
gave threo sharp whistles, which was the
last seen or heard of her until the next
morning, when her pilot house with the
end stove in, a small boat, the stem, one
side of her hull and numerous small
pieces were discovered coming up the
river with the tide. The steameflMno at
once steamed down to the mouth of the
river and put a searching party ashore
and the beach was patrolled for miles to
the eouth, but no bodies were discovered.
Other parties who came down the coast
from the north reported that they had
seen no bodies in that direction. The
general impression of seafaring men is
that she had sprung a leak, and that the
captain was attempting to get into the
river, in order to save the lives of those
on board, and either miscalculated his po
sition or was blown out of his course by
the heavy wind prevailing at the time.
She had on board seven people as fol
lows. Jas. Hill, captain, Henry Grow,
engineer. Walter Keating, fireman, an
assistant fireman, a deck hand, a Chi
nese cook, and Gee. S. Marshall, the pro
prietor of the cannery at Empire City,
who came up on her, and was returning,
News of the wreck reached here yes
Capt. Hill was well-known in Astoria,
and along the Columbia. He had been
master of the tug Fearless for the last
ten years. lie was part owner in several
of Simpson'j' schooners; he told the
writer in a conversation at the Occident,
last Monday, that on his return here he
was going to put $10,000 into Astoria
Geo. S. Marshall was also well known
here. He had just finished a fairly pros
perous season at Empire City. Henry
Grow and Walter Keating were also well
known in Astoria.
The tug was not in tho best of con
dition; she had been rebuilt a few years
ago. She was owned by A. M. Simpson,
and was valued at $10,000; uninsured.

Tua Multnomah Carries The IS room.
Tho steamer Multnomah, was trans
ferred to the Sound some time ago, where
she has a regular run. Although the
Multnomah was not the fastest steamer
on the river when she left here, she could
come very near holding her own with
any of them. On the Sound the rivalry
between the steamers is very sharp, and
when they happen alongside of each
other they invariably throw open
tho throttle and raise nil the steam the
law allows them to carry.
The Multnomah has been noted for
her fast time since taking her run on the
Sound. Sho had a race yesterdny, as
the following dispatch will shew:

Washington has been advertised
through the east for many years, and of
late she haB been reaping tne benefit of
this. We rarely piok up a paper but that
our neighbor is lauded to the skies and
Oregon scarcely mentioned, lno reason
of this is very apparent. The great trans
continental line, the Northern Pacific,
has always displayed the best railroad
sense of any line in the northwest. It
thoroughly understands the fact that
every settler who makes a home near
the line of the road is a feeder to
it, and on this account it desires as many
immigrants as possible in Washington.
Through its efforts the new state has
rapidly increased in population, and her
different resources have been developed
by eastern capital. If Oregon, had been
treated in the same manner, she would
have double the population she now has,
and her only hope for the future is in
having a trans-continental line built
through to the ocean. The Dalles Times

THE JOHNSON INQUEST.
The Verdict of the Jury In the Matter.
The inquest on the body of John John
son, better known as "Salvation Army
Butch," was resumed yesterday morning.
Tho first witness called was Wm. Dunlap
who said he was in tho Chicago sa
loon Saturday night, between two and
three weeks ago, wbs playing pool with
Miss"Weiman and a couple of friends;

not hear him ask the girl any questions;
did not hear Peter Wieman order tho
man out, but saw him go out. It was
after midnight when he came.
J. J. Bottger was next called and said:
"I saw Butch about two days before he
was missed. He was not drunk at that
time. I heard that he had won consid
erable money, but did not see him have
any. That was the last time I saw. him
before I heard that he was missing"
Annie- Weiman, was next awarri and
said: "The night' before Johnson disap
peared ne was in the Chicago saloon.
Jlecamerup to where J was standing and
asked Tne to have a drink. While my
brother Peter was getting tho drinks, he
asked me to go up stairs with him.
Brother Peter heard him ask me that
question and he indignantly ordered him
nut of the- saloon, and he immediately
went without any trouble."
This concluded the testimony, and the
jury retired. After a few minutes con
ference they brought in the following
