The loss of a pilot schooner in its
own immediate locality, where it
is supposed that the officers on board
know every foot of the coast is a sin
gular thing to chronicle in a home
paper, but nevertheless it is a dis
agreeable fact.
The news first reached this city by
a dispatch from Signal Observer
Young at Fort Canby which was sent
from there at 9:30 yesterday morning,
and read as follews:
The pilot schooner Qov. Moody
went ashore in a fog on North Head
at 4:30 a. n. The vessel is a total
wreck. The cook, George Salvely,
was drowned; Capt Peter Cordiner,
arm and head hurt, but not seriously;
Louis Olsen, slightly hurt in left hip;
Gustavus Adolphus McCorda, slightly
out in head.
A .second dispatch from the same
source, and dated at 2 o'clock p. h.,
was as follews:
The wreck lies at the base of tho
5liff at Wills prairie. The colored
cook, George Salvely, reported
drowned, was discovered by the life
crew on a rock under a cliff and
hauled ashore by them. They then
boarded the" wreck and saved nearly
all the men's clothing, also books and
sextant As far as can bo seen there
is not the slightest ohance of saving
the vessel.
A little before six o'clock last even
ing the steamer Suomi arrived hero
from Hwaco, bringing Capt Peter
Cordiner and the crew of tho wreck,
and as near as can be ascertained from
a conversation with them and from
the above dispatches the facts are giv
en herewith.
It seems that the two pilots who
went out on the schooner on Friday
had been transferred to incoming ves
sels and Capt Peter Cordiner, the
sailing master, was in charge. He isn
an experienced navigator but a new
comer in these waters and not at all
familiar here, either with the coast
or the currents. It wa3 very foggy
on Friday night and the vessel stood
out to sea for six hours, then headed
shoreward for two hours, when sud
denly at 420 yesterday morning the
schooner struck the rocks, and the
men on board found they were on a
rocky shore and against the edge of a
high bluff.
They climbed up the mainmast, but
the vessel lurched heavily against tho
rock, the mast broke off and they fell
to the deck slightly injured. Then
they climbed the forerigging and
managed to get off to the rock.
While doing this, Capt Cordiner's
arm wa3 badly bruised by being
caught between the mast and the
rock, as the ship rolled, for there was
a heavy swell on, and the schooner
was continually bumping against the
rocks and gradually being driven
further on shore.
The colored cook was supposed to
have been lost, but he managed to get
on another rock lower down from
which he was afterwards rescued by
being hauled up with a rope.
As soon as word reached them the
life-saving crew at the Fort Canby
station went to the wreck and did ex
cellent service. They also connected
the rock and the schooner with a line
and saved considerable property from
the vessel.
Capt Flavel says it is a wonder that
all hands were not lost, for the boat
was heading directly for that rocky
shore and coming rapidly both by the
wind and the powerful current which
sets in there so swiftly. It was also
not quite daylight, and there was a
dense fog at the time.
The action of the "Union Pacific in
placing in command of a pilot schooner
n man who is a stranger to these
waters is very reprehensible, for how
over good a navigator ho may be he
certainly was not familiar with this lo
cality and tho course of the currents.
TJiere are scores of men here well
quaJihedfor the position, who know
every foot of the coast and are pos
sessed of every possible knowledge re
quired concerning the soundings, the
currents and curves, any one of whom
could have been secured for tho place.
The Qqt. Moody was a staunch
schooner, built for the business, had
been idle for several months, but had
just been overhauled and refitted, and
sailed out on Friday for the first
time, and then was wrecked tho very
next day. She was owned by the
state, but was operated bythe Union
Paoifio, and was insured for $11,000.
Yesterday was eventful of no little
interest among th' vivacious people of
the city, as it was tho occasion of the
base ball contest between a chosen
nine of attorneys and as many real
estate dealers of Astoria. All during
the fore part of que day could be
seen upon the streets ominous signs
of the approaching coiitest; base balls
were seen flying from fingers soft and
delicate and unaccustomed to a harder
usage than that of v.ielding tho pen
or turning the leaves of law books; a
squad of lawyers on one corner, a
knot of real estate men on another,
and no little speculation was indulged
in by people generally.
As the hour approached for the
game the Bay railway train was kept
flying with passengers for some time,
until several hundred rsople had con
gregated upon the grounds, a large
number of ladies forming a conspicu
ous and a graceful feature.
The game was called at 3 o'clock.
Judge Taylor acted as umpire for the
lawyers, and Captain Chenault offici
ated in the same capacity for the real
estate men. The two nines of players
were named in the following posi pesi posi
teons: Heal Estate. Position. Ijawtees.
Tattle..-. catcher Southern
Cook pitcher Carpenter
Marion short stop Koland
Crandall 1st base. . . .G. C. Pnlton
VanDosen 2d base J.H.Smith
Hodge .Sdbnse ,....Cnrtis
McGowan left field Cleveland
Stono center field. -C. W. Fulton
Elmore .right field.... Thompson
The "toss up" sent tho Lawyers to
bat They took hold with an energy
that bespoke determination to win or
bleed. Several moderate but safe
hits filled tho bases when Southern
wont to bat and raised a fly far out
over the fielders and vacated the
bases, reaching third himself. The
round up of this inning for tho Law
yers was seven runs.
The Boomers went to bat and suc
ceeded in scoring one run. Then fol
lowed tho Lawyers with two; then tho
Boomers got a goose-egg; then the
Lawyers captured two more ana tlie
Boomers one. Thus ended the third
inning with the scoro standing nine to
two in favor of the Lawyers, and
looking decidedly blue for thoBoomers.
In this style tho game continued until
the beginning of theninth and last
inning, when the score stood 20 to 13
in favor of the Lawyers. The latter
went to bat and scored one run. This
left eight runs for their opponents to
overcome. The Boomers had borne an
equal fight throughout the entire con
test Their competitors were flushed
with success, and perhaps a trifle vain
glorious. It looked as though they
had the game within their grasp. But
the Boomers had no notion of being
vanquished, even with such odds star
ing them in tho face. They went into
their last play in the game with a de
termination that they would win or
die, and win they did, as can be seen
from the following score by innings:
Lawyers.... 7 2 2 2 0 2 0 6 121
Boomers. ..1 0 14 0 3 1 3 1023
And thus closed one of the most ex
citing base ball games ever played in
Clatsop county.

There is a dangerous hole in the
planking on Second street which
should be repaired before some seri
ous accident results. Only yesterday
a horse stumbled in it and barely
missed breaking his leg. Strangers
riding or driving in the city will have
an unfavorable opinion of this city if
such dangerous .traps are allowed to
go unmended. The hole is easier re-
? aired than a horse's leg if broken,
he property owners, "who are abund

their property is not disfigured by
dangerous holes in the planking.

The lighthouse tender, the steamer
Manzanita, Capt. Richardson, with
Capt W. W. Rhoades inspector of
this district, and Mrs. Rhoades, on
board, left here on Thursday evening
the 11th instant bound down the coast.
At noon of the next day they arrived
at Cape Blanco light station, the
most southerly station in Capt
Rhoades district, but the sea was
high and the weather too unfavorable
for landing, so tho steamer proceeded
south to Port Orford and dropped
anchor at 230 p. ir. The annual sup
plies for the station were landed here,
from which place tljey are hauled
seven miles over a rough wagon road.
Saturday morning Capt Rhodes
and wife rode across the country
and visited the Cape Blanco light,
which the captain officially inspected,
and they returned to tho steamer be
fore dark. Saturday the steamer
Truckee, Capt Gregory, camo into
Port Orford for a harbor, as the sea
was too rough outside for the vessel
to continue her course to Tillamook,
and that is a very sheltered anchorage.
Captain Richardson and First Officer
Gregory visited the Truckee after she
came to an anchor and called ou Capt.
Gregory, who was formerly in com
mand of tho Manzanita, and is well
known here.
Sunday, tho 11th instant, Capt.
Gregory returned their call and met
Capt and Mrs. Rhoades for the first
time, and a pleasant day was passed
by all on the Manzanita, tho weather
being too rough for the vessel to como
Monday Capt Rhoades, Capt. Rich
ardson aud Chief Engineer Lord went
ashore and had a hunting excursion,
capturing considerable game. That
afternoon the steamer Lagnna, Capt
Yarnberg, also came into Port Orford
for a safe anchorage, the sea being a
little too rough for the vessel outside.
Tuesday it was no better, and as tho
wind was blowing very strong, all
three steamers remained at their
Wednesday, tho 17th inst, the wind
and sea having moderated, all three
vessels weighed their anchors and put
out from Port Orford in the morning.
The Manzanita arrived at Cape
Arago light, off Coos bay, at 1 o'clock
p. ir., dropped anchor, landed sup
plies, and Captain Rhoades inspected
tne station, then they proceeded up
the coast, arriving off Cape Foul
weather light, which is on the westerly
end of Yaquina head, seven miles
south of the cape, at 2 o'clock a. m.
Thursday. The steamer stood off and
on until daylight, then to Yaquina
bay, where Captain Minott, of the
steamer Mischief, came on board and
piloted the vessel into the bay and up
to Newport
The same day (Thursday) Captain
and Mrs. Rhoades and Captain Rich
ardson rode in a wagon six miles or
more across the country from New
port to Cape Foul weather light, which
was inspected, and they returned, call
ing on the way on Mrs. Cole, wife of
Rev. Mr. Cole, of Portland.
Friday morning Captain and Mrs.
Rhoades left Newport and went to
Yaquina City, where they took tho
cars for Portland. At high water that
day Captain Minott piloted the Man
zanita out of Yaquina bay, and tho
steamer came slowly up tho coast, as
the run was but short to their next
At one o'clock on Saturday (yester
day) morning they were off Tdla
mook rock, where they intended to
take 'off "Mr. Hunt, the head keeper,
and Mr. Thompson, who has been
preparing the trench, on the rock for
the reception of the telegraphic cable,
but the sea was rolling so heavily and
the fog was so thick that it was im
possible to reach the rock with a boat,
though the vessel waited near by for
live hours.
At six o'clock the steamer started
away bound for this city, arriving off
the mouth of the Columbia at oao
a. sl, but the fog was very thick and
there was a heavy swell from the
west north-west, and the vessel headed
out to sea until nearly noon the fog
lifted a little, objects were discernible,
and the river was entered, the steamer
going up to tho buoy depot
At tho depot a number of empty oil
cases and other articles were un
loaded, which had been brought from
the stations down the coast, fresh
water was taken on board from the
splendid well at tho depot which sup
plies so many vessels with excellent
water, and at r. m. yesterday the
Manzanita was at her pier, foot of
Main street. There a largo whistling
buoy was swung off and landed on the
dock. It was brought from Newport,
having last December drifted from its
moorings off Yaquina bay, and been
towed into Newport by some vessel
who found it adrift. It is damaged,
and bids to repair it will be mado by
the Astoria Iron Works and Arndt fc
On Monday and Tuesday ten tons
of coal in saclcs will be 'taken on board
for the fog signal at Cape Flattery,
and also supplies will be taken on
from the buoy depot for the bght sta
tions on Puget sound and other places
north of here. Tuesday evening or
Wednesday the Manzanita will sail
northward and be absent two or three
weeks, being accompanied by Capt
Rhoades on his regular inspection
While tho vessel was at Port Orford
last Sunday, two small birds flew" on
board the ship and were caught by
the sailors. Capt Richardson made a
little cage for them, and they seem
quite contented with their "life on the
ocean wave." They are to remain in
Astoria now as permanent residents.

A Letter from an Eminent Physician.
Mu. Editee: At tho -risk of indorsing a
proprietary preparation, I have, c few word
In favor of a new laxative principle. Bat
first, how I camo to discover it. A patient
asked about taking Joy's Vegetable Earsa
parilla. As sarsaparillas usually contain
mercury oriodides I objected, and asked for
the formula, which findlngpurcly vegetable,
and so mild as to bo to my mind almost
inert, I consented. Imagine my astonish
ment when perfect laxative action was re
ported. It has two great points. .Fira, being
purely vegetable, it Is (unlike mercury) not
cumulative ia tho system, being easily car
ried off by the digestive processes ; and second,
lt is effective -with a less quantity of the
cathartic principle than has hitherto been
attainable. It in this respect ranks as a
discovery, and approaches the ideal, viz.:
tho least medicine consistent with the great
est good. It harmonizes natural laxative
action and perfect safety, and should inter
est both the public and tho profession,
jicrrr phtsicux op thtbtt teabs practigb.
