TbB Bari: " Kato F. Troop " Arriyes
Willi a Cargo of Tea.
S.lll.i:i IT J' TO AX AXCllOItAC.i:
Last week the press of Puget sound
crowed loud aud long over the fact
that the American ship Francis had
arrived at Tacoma from Hiogo, Japan,
with a cargo of tea, and had made the
run in what was termed the speedy
time of forty-five days.
Yesterday afternoon the British
bark Kate F. Troop sailed into this
harbor with a cargo of 900 tons of tea
from the same point only forty days
out There was no tug boat hooked
onto the Troop, which, under fore
and main top sails, and under a stiff
northwest wind sailed up the river
from Fort Stevens and dropped anchor
off the Union Pacific wharf.
The ship was expected and in order
that no time be lost a tug boat was in
waiting and an hour after arrival the
vessel left up the river and by this
evening her cargo will be speeding
over the Union Pacific towards its
destination, which is severally Chicago,
New York and Montreal.
Forty days for a sailing yessel to
cross the Pacific ocean is not very quick
time the trip has been made in less
but it beats the average run between
Oriental ports and points on Puget
sound and shows that quicker time
can be made by sending cargoes for
Atlantic ports via the Columbia river
than via the straits of Juan de
Fuca and Puget sound.
In addition to lea. the Troop has on
board a quantity of Oriental curios.
The master of the vessel, Capt. A. G.
Banks, reports an uneventful trip.
He had favoring winds and no heavy
weather. In latitude 48 K, longitude
145 W., he spoke the Norwegian

A Very Interesting Game of Ball at Smith's
At the base ball grounds at Smith's
Point yesterday afternoon, the Astoria
and Columbia baseball nines crossed
bats. The grounds were in excellent
condition and in spite of the fact that
there was no announcement of the
game, the attendance was quite large.
Fairly good ball was played, but from
the beginning of the second innings
it was apparent that the Columbias
wcro overmatched. The game re

Tho special ageuts of the treasury
department, Col. J. F. Evans and C.

week iusiecting the custom house, its
books aud records, and examining the
accounts, have finished their labors.
They left here last evening for Port
laud, and are to go thence to Port
Townsend. They will favor tho ap
pointment of inspectors for Gray's
harbor, but have not decided defi
nitely in regard to a similar course
for Shoalwater bay.
Col. Evans staled to a representa
tive of Tun Astorian that they had
found the business affairs of this cus
tom house in an excellent condition,
and that Collector Taylor and his as
sistants are doing splendidly. The
matter or more protection for the
mouth of the river, to prevent smug
gling, is under advisement, and some
practical suggestions will be made to
the department at an early day.
The field in summer is compara
tively open to bold smugglers, as there
is then no revenue cutter here, as duty
in Behriug sea occupies the attention
in the summer time of these naval
police boats of the treasury depart
ment. Messrs. Evans and Mulkey have
made numerous friends during their
short stay here, who will remember
them kindly, and gladly welcome them
again should business or pleasure ever
direct their course to Astoria.

What gave rise to the reports is con

and it is made returnable before Judge

The prisoner was convicted under

As yet there has been notliing found
of the body of young Morris who was
drowned here. On Saturday Ed.
Wright and Mark Warren went out at
low tide and searched for the body in
and near the crab hole where he was
seen last Mark Warren went out
with a line fast to him and when he
got into the current running into the
crab hole, it was so strong that it re
quired considerable assistance from
the line to draw him out Ed. Wright
went in part of the hole where the
water was clear and some fifteen feet
deep and thought at one time he had
found the object of his search, but it
proved to be a shoal oi crabs at the
Yrouug Morris was not considered
an expert swimmer by those familiar
with the beach, nor was he familiar
with surf bathing. He was warned
several times by those who were com
petent to advise that it was a danger
ous venture for him to go near the
crab hole, but he seemed to pay little
attention to their warnings. Those
who had the best opportunity to ob
serve him think he waded out toward
this crab hole till near the edge of it
and then a breaker struck him off his
feet and the undertow that runs
through the hole carried him into
deep water which was running out to
sea. When he found ho was being
carried out he attempted to swim
back against the current, which was
impossible for anyone to do. Then
becoming exhausted by his desperate
efforts he finally lost his presence or
mind and was drowned.
Some have an idea that there is
something terribly dangerous in a
crab hole, as if it was a sort of mael
strom that surely swallows up who
ever is so uufortuuato a3 to chance
within its deadly sweep.
But that idea i3 erroneous. The
crab holes are gullies washed iu the
beach and bearing the same relation
to its slopes as the gullies or gulches
coming down the sides of hills.
These crab holes are not permanent,
but shift from place to place on the
beach, according to the direction of
tho prevailing wind, and they tire
caused by tho surf which is driven up
on the beach, running to ono side on
its return, instead ot flowing directly
back tho way it came.
If tho wind is from the northwest,
then tho spent surf is driven to the
south and forms a considerable cur
rent at somo point running back into
the oceau, and cutting away tho sand,
it forms a channel some ten to eighteen
or more feet deep. This channel is tho
crab hole, not because tho crabs have
anything to do with forming it, but
because the crabs congregate there in
To a good swimmer who tmlcr
staiuls them, there is no danger in get
ting into oiie of these holes when the
current is running swiftlv out to sea.
Instead of attempting to swim back
against the current ho lets himself be
carried along with it, knowing that
after a little the current will lose its
force and be lost in tho volume of
water farther from shore, then tit his
leisure he can swim back and regain
the beach at a more favorable point.
Thus it will be seen that surf-bathing
is not dangerous to those who pay at
tention to a few simple precautious,
and if young Morris had paid atten
tion to the advice and entreaties ot his
friends he would not have been
drowned. Those who frequented tho
beach at Seaside realize this, kuowing
that there was nothing dangerous
about it for those who observedjreason
able caution, they continued bathing,
notwithstanding tho unfortunate ac
cident that befel young Morris.

weather, with some smoke, prevailed.
The rain that fell was not sufficient
to do any material damage to tho har

Hay is, as a rule, better as to quan
tity and quality, than was looked fer:
the third crop in many sections being
very good. In Yamhill county, from
a field of six hundred" acres
of wheat an average yield of
38 bushels per acre was obtained. In
Benton county it is estimated that
winter wheat will average 31 bushels
and spring wheat 25 bushels per acre.
Late sown oats has yielded as high as
65 bushels per acre. Throughout
Linn, Marion, Polk and the other val
ley connties the general average has
been far more than was anticipated.
The hop crop will be about 30,000
bales and of good quality. Iu Douglas

oats in sections a good crop, in others
only a fair crop. In Josephine and
Jackson counties water melons are
ripe and the crop is unusually large.
Iu tho latter connty whito grapes are
ripe, other varieties promise well. In
Wasco county, wheat, oats and barley
are nearly all cut. The general aver
age yield of wheat is tweulv-five
bushels per acre, oats and barley J
forty bushels. The county, as a whole. '
has a first-class yield. In Sherman i
wheat and barley are turning out well, j
Corn and potatoes promise well. Good
accounts of grain come in from Gillian '
and Morrow counties, in the latter'
barley yields of 2G bushels per acre
are reported. In the neighborhood of '

that could be expected. The valleys '
of Wallowa county report most sails-'

An American Girl in Lnii.lou.
Miss Agnes Huntington assisted at
a ceremony in which she is much con
cerned. It was the occasion of the
turning ot the first sod in connection
with tho new theatre in Cranbourne
street, London, which George Ed
wards is building, and which will be
opened by our Agnes as soon as it is
built Miss Huntington was in charge
of Abnd, tho Exquisite, met a distin
guished company headed by no
less a personage than a royal
princess. Our Agnes and Queen
Victoria's kinsfolk duly hobnobbed,
and then, with the assistance or
Marcus Mayer, who gracefully
handed Aggie tho gilded spade, she
put her tiny Boston foot on the im
plement, expanded into a general
smile, and looked as thongh she had
built tho theater. Of course, the big
gathering of peripatetic Americans
cheered lustily as Agnes retired with
tho royal party to indulge in circus
lemonade and brilliant platitudes.
