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. I)!I) ITP A SA1L0K. A Local Pugilist Severely Punishes a Deserter." 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. The steamship Stale of California, Capt. II. S.

Work on the Chehnlls and South Bend line, he said, is being pushed rapidly, aud altogether there is probably 700 men at work. On this end of the line 200 Chinese are looking after the work. Extraordinary Salmon Shipments. There has probably been no season in tho history of salmon packing on the Columbia when the. pack has been disposed of so 'rapidly as tho present For some time past every steamer has been loaded on her up trip with salmon, and still it goes. At this rate very little will be left to gp over the bar for foreign ports. It is thought there is probably not more than -lSjOOO cases left on the river. police to JJariners.

A ConsMon Company's CMitor Brings Snil. WM. Jt KID'S 1'L.LSS CHECK El). C. J. Curtis, as attorney for W. H. 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 ists seriously interfered with. A GOOD BUY. An Alh.ny Man Srciircs Some Valuable Property. 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 MARVELOUS ESCAPE. A Young Lady Dragged by a Runaway IIore. 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. KEAL ESTATE TRANSFERS.

The cargo of tho British bark2Voop, which arnvca aundav, comprised 7,823 cases of tea. The steamshirv Columbia, sailing from here to-day, will take several thousand cases of salmon and a large quantity of shooks for 'Frisco. Yesterday some slight changes or repairs were made on the new boiler of the steamer JIanzanita, and Capt. Bichardsou expects to go to Tilla-, mook Rock to-day. 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 cific company, it is understood, claims 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 the Danube. In Her Stomach. About three.inonths ago Dr. Voight, of this city, was called to attend Mrs. Annie Micldcs, who lives at 755 South Pearl street. Columbus, O. Tho wo man appeared to be suffering from stomach trouble. Shortlv after treat ment was commenced Mrs. Mickles began to throw off vegetable matter resembling strips of flesh and skin, and under the doctor's treatment was slowly recovering. His patient sorely puzzled Dr. Voight, who deter 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."
