Five Pounds of Powder Exploded in HLs
Yesterday afternoon Andrew Peter
son, who has a ranch on the Necani
cum, about eight miles from Seaside,
met with a terrible accident while at
work in the woods.
Peterson was blasting a log and had
put one blast in which failed to go off.
He then commenced putting in an
other and had a lard can full of pow
der in his hand while putting in the
charge. There must have been some
fire in the log from the previous charge
that fired the loose powder which
caused the explosion of that in the can
he was holding. The terrible force
of the explosion struck him in the
face bnrning his beard and skin to a
crisp, jiis race is terribly swollen
and full of powder and his eyes are
closed to sight
From where the poor man met with
the accident it was about half a mile
by the trail to Mr. Johnson's place,
and down this trail he crawled, once
in a while stopping to pnll his eyes
open with his lingers, being then able
to dimly see his way. Thus, with
great suffering, he managed to reach
Johnson's, where he was assisted to
Seaside. From Seaside he was ac
companied to Astoria by George W.
Eowe, who took the unfortunate man
to St. Mary's hospital, where he re
ceived medical attention. His right
eye is the worst injured, although he
may possibly recover the sight of
both. He is a member of the Scan
dinavian Benevolent society, and will
receive the sympathy and attention
of his fellow-members, as well as the
nursing and kind offices of the at
tendants at the hospital.
A Local Pugilist Severely Punishes a
A little tin pleasantness occurred in
a saloon in lower town about 10 1 o'clock
last night, in which a sailor whose
name is unknown was badly beaten
by Wm. Scott, otherwise known as
Seotty, the pugilist.
The sailor, it appears, arrived here
recently on a deep water vessel aud
put up at one of the sailor boarding
houses where he was given carte
blanche, had the ran of the bar-room
and in other ways life was made
pleasant to him from a sailor's
standpoint, the understanding on the
part of the boarding houso keeper
being that the tar would stay with
him until ho could bo shipped. The
sailor, however, after a few days of
riotous living concluded he did not
want to go to sea any more, and leav
ing the boarding house, went to work
for a cont motor,
Last night he came into town, and
in his rounds met "Seotty." The
latter took him to task for "desert
ing,' aud as Jack vouchsafed no ex
planation nor showed any disposition
to pay his bilk "Seotty" did him up in
the most approved Sullivanistic stylo.
It took a phvsician half an hour to
dress the man's bruised face. No ar
rests. Coniinj; Front California.

Bain, purposes checking Wm. Beid
and the Pacific Construction company
in securing control of the $391,000 in
bonds and securities on deposit with
the L W. Case Banking Co., as
security and forfeit for the payment
of the construction of the Seaside
division of the South Coast railroad.
Yesterday suit was filed against the
Construction company on behalf or
Bain, who, as assignee of a number of
surveyors, obtained judgment against
the company last fall for 83,483.60.
This fact is set forth in the complaint
in the case, which then recites that
the Astoria & South Coast railroad is
indebted to the Construction company
in tho sum named. That the latter
company is insolvent and except for
its lien on tho negotiable securities
and bonds has no assets.
Wherefore plaintiff asks that the de
fendant corporation be declnred insol
vent; that a receiver be appointed to
close up the affairs of tho company
aud apply the proceeds to the payment
of plaintiff's claim.
"Unless some good philanthropist
steps in and furnishes the money for the
construction company to pay the claim
of Bain the bonds will be tied up for
some tune and the proposed plan of
Wm. Beid to place them with capital

An Alh.ny Man Srciircs Some Valuable
At the court house yesterday after
noon, J. K. Weatherford, of Albany,
made a good buy of choice Astoria
property. He was one of a few that
attended tho sheriff's salo in tho par
tition suit of C. 11. Page against
Sclhosser et als. The property in
volved comprised lots 5 and 10, block
CI; lots 5 and 10, block 5S, and lot 10,
wth water front rights, in block CG)j,
McClure's addition, and is on what is
known as Hamilton.street.
Tho price paid was $12,000, which is
considered very low.
As Mr. Weatherford is connected
with tho Albany & Astoria railroad in
an official capacity, tho purchase will
doubtless bo tho foundation for re
ixirls that the company has secured it
for terminal facilities.

A Young Lady Dragged by a Runaway
Miss Grace Carrnthers, of this city,
met with a thrilling adventure on the
road to Kamm's farm and her escape
from death or serious injury was noth
ing less than miraculous. Miss Carrnth
ers was one of a party of ladies and
gentlemen, who set out on horseback
early Sunday morning to visit the
Kamm place. The animal that Miss
Carruthers rode was a spirited one
and caused her no littlo inconvenience
by shying at objects on tho road. She
managed to keep her seat until at a
point about eight miles from the city,
when the horse took a leap to one side
ana ran away.
Miss Carruthers was thrown to
the ground. Her riding habit caught
in the stirrup and she was dragged a
considerable distance, the animal's
hoofs striking the ground in alarming
proximity to her head. Fortunately
the strain on tho dress proved tob
great, and its tearing released the
young lady from her perilous position.
An examination disclosed that Miss
Carruther's injuries consisted solely of
a braised shoulder, The horse was
recaptured and the young lady pluck
ily rode it into the city.

Capt. Tuthill, of the British ship
Slrathblane, which arrived Snndav
from Antwerp, reports that when the
vessel was near the equator on this
side, what looked like a ship's boat
was sighted. The captain satisfied
himself that no signals of distress were
flying from this object, but did not
run down close enough to make ont
whether or not it was a boat.
Foard & Stoke3 have purchased all
the wreckage of the bark Corca,
which belonged to the Cutting Pack
ing company, and which went ashore
at Cook's Inlet last spring. Tho pur
chase includes all the rigging, chains,
sails, etc., recovered. The TJnion Pa

title to the property also, and it is
stated will try to enforce their claim.
There is considerable red tape at
tached to the practice of lightering
ships at this point before they can pro
ceed up the river to the inland sea
port. Vessels arriving here with
cargoes for Portland are invariably so
deeply laden that they cannot go" up
the river and in consequence must dis
charge part of the cargo on to barges.
This cannot be done without permis
sion of the customs authorities, but
this i3 generally granted npon applica
tion of the agent, made in writing, to
the collector of customs. The request
in tho case of the ship Strathblanc,
which arrived here Sunday, reads:
"Permission is respectfully requested
to lighter sufficient of tho cargo of the
British ship Strathblanc, of Glasgow,
from Antwerp to Portland, Or., with gen
eral cargo, to ennblo hor to go over tlu
river bars to her destination."
The Canadian Pacific Co.'s steam
ship Danube, which arrived from
Victoria yesterday, came "by way of
San Francisco. . The occasion for this
was the late unpleasantness between
the Pacific Mail Steamship company
and the Canadian Pacific, wherein a
war in freight and passenger business
was declared. Tho breach has since
been healed, and under condition
that the Cauadian company will let
San Francisco bnsiness alone, the
Mail company agrees to keep its ships
away from British Columbia ports.
One steamer of the latter company,
the China, touched at Victoria, and
to get even the other company ac
cepted f reisrht and passengers at ilonir
Koug nnd Yokabama, on the steamer
Abyssinia, for ban Francisco. Before
the vessel had crossed the ocean, how
ever, a truce had been declared by
inc companies and tne passengers anil
freight were sent to the Bay City on

mined yesterday to make a thorough
examination of tho case, which
brought o light an astounding state
of affairs. The patient was placed in
a reclining iiosition, and milk was
dropped slowly into her month. An
instrument was then introduced, when
the doctor says ho saw an object mov
ing back and forth across the aliment
ary canal. In order to remove the
object, the doctor administered to his
patient a powerful emetic, which
caused violent tils of vomiting, during
one or which she threw from hor
stomach a white substance an inch
and a half in length, which upon ex
amination proved to be a toad, and it
was alive. The doctor and Mr, and
Mrs. Mickles could scarce! v believe
their eyes, and when the patient fully
realized what she had thrown
oil her stomach she fainted.
The toad was imperfectly developed.
The head and fore part or the body
were perfect and complete, lut its
rear legs were missqg, nnd there is
nothing to. indicate that they ever
grow out. Mrs. Mickles is feeling
greatly improved to-night, aud in en
deavoring to account for the presence
of the toad in her stomach told ihe
Enquirer that about ono year ago,
while living at Lancaster, Ohio, she
was employed "at a house where cis
tern water was used for drinking pur
poses. She frequently found toads
and snakes in the cistern, and thinks
she must have swallowed this one at
that time, Dr. Voight is of the opin
ion that the animal was taken into the
stomach in embryo aud developed
while lying there." Cincinnati Sn.
