MANY LIVES LOS
Sealing Schooner Wrecked and
All Hands Lost.
EXCELSIOR DOES GOOD WORK
Saves the Crew of the Brenda, An'
other Wrecked Sealer
v Double Murder.
Seattle, August 21. The steam ahooner
Excelsior arrived here this morning from
Alaska, bringing the first definite news
of the wreck of the sealing schooner
Walter Earle, of Victoria, which was
capsized April 14, with the loss of every
man on board, including Captain Magne
son and crew of seven white men and
eleven Indians. She was found bottom
up and the Indians were in the fore'
castle. '
The steamer Francis Cutting towed the
wreck to Kodiak Island, and it was
there that the dead Indians were discov
ered, after the boat had been turned
right side up. The Excelsior also
brought a part of the crew of another
wreck, the sealing schoonor Brenda,
which went to pieces on an unknown
rock on the coast of Schumshu Island
eft the Siberian coast., but all of -the
men were Buved. Those returning on the
Excelsior were Captain C. E. Locke,
Seaman Charles Nelson and Cabin Boy
Arthur Cox. On the 10th of April a ter-
rlflc storm swept the seas around Ko
diak Island, endangering every kind of
craft. In the middle of July tho steam
er Francis Cutting, Captain Thomas,
bound toward Unalarka, sighted an up
turned hull and attaching a line towed
it into Koulak, in a fearful storm. The
Indians, becoming frightened, had rushed
into the forecastle, which is their quar
ters. The brave crew outside had tried
to imanagc the helpless vessel, which may
have already lost her rudder, as it was
gone from the wreck. They had been
swept into the sea by the fury of the
storm, and sank without the least chance
to save themselves. The Imprisoned In
dians were in much greater peril and
when t'he boat turned completely over
they were drowned without even a re
mote chance being allowed to those in
the open air to save them.
DOUBLE MURDER.
Seattle, August 21.--A special to the
Post-Intelllgencor from Woodlnvllle June
tlon, King county, Wash., gays:
A fearful shooting: affray occurred at
Avondale, about elsht miles "east of here
this morning-, resulting: In the death of
Joseph Cicero and proboibly the mortal
wounding of Jim MoCann, both ranchers
living near Avondale. Bad blood has ex
isted between Cicero and the McCann
brothers since the election last fall. This
imornlng Cicero, meeting Jim McCann and
tils brother, they commenced quarrollng.
Finally Cicero and Jim McCann camo to
blows and when separated by some of
the bystanders, one of the MoCann broth
ers pulled his revolver. Upon seeing this
Cicero said: "If this is your game, 1
will take a hand in it." He Immediately
went to his house, only a few rods o(T,
and when he came out one of tho Mc
Canns fired two shots at him, upon
which Cicero commenced firing, Ono of
the bullets took effect In McCann's ab
domen. Cicero still advancing, foil on
the ground, upon which one of tho Mc
Capn brothers took a revolver from bis
'brother's hand and holding it closo to
Cicero's head, fired, resulting In the Im
mediate death of Cicero.
Small hopes are entertained for Mc
Cann's life.
A
American Ship James Drum
Mond in Danger.
Both Anchors Dragging A Timely
Assistance From the Belief and
Manzanita Saved liter From
Destruction.
About half an hour before the conclu
sion of yesterday afternoon's sailing
races, and when Captain Gregory and
the Judges on the Manzanita were get
ting ready to record the time of the
winning sloops and 18-footers, word was
sent off that the steamer had been or
dered away to Tillamook Rock on duty
to assist in getting the American ship
James Drumniond out of a dangerous
predicament. The anchor was immedi
ately weighed and the Manzanita taken
to her dock, where about 150 ladles were
hurrletKy put ashore. Commander Far
enholt went aboard, and he gave Cap
tain Gregory the following dispatch from
Fort Canby:
"The American ship which, passed out
two days ago Is going ashore inside of
Tillamook Rock. She is dragging her an
chors and flying distress signals.
KELL1HER.
Commander Farenholt then ordered
Captain Gregory to leave trnmedlately
and do all In his power to aid the tug
boat Relief which had gone to the as
sistance of the vessel. Everybody but
an Astorlan representative and Deputy
United States Marshal Stewart was put
ashore and preparations were Immediate
ly made for departure. All the regatta
bunting was hauled In, awnings were
folded and sheeted home, boats run in
board and lciBhed, and in three minutes
from the - time she lifted her anchor
in midstream the Manzanita was run
ning full speed out to see with every
thing shipshape and not a sign, even in
the shape Of a chair on her deck, irivlrg
any evidence of the festivities that had
been going on aboard Ave minutes be
fore. It was one of the natest pieces of
work tlmt has bn witnessed on-tha
river for many m day and Captain Greg
ory, his officers and crew, ar entitled to
great credit for the efficiency and
smartness they displayed. With a
strong tide running out over the bar
the Manzanita, was not long In round
ing the mouth of the river, and In ex
actly two hours from the time she cast
off from the wharf she spoke the Drum
mond. The Relief, which had a start of
half an hour on the government vessel,
was riding alongside when she reached
her. Captain Gregory and tho Astorlan
representative boarded the ship and Cap
tain Curtis gave the following; account
of the trouble:
"At a little after 6 o'clock last night
(Tuesday) the wind died away entirely.
We were about four miles oft Tillamook
Rock and were unable to see halt a
dozen cable lengths ahead on account of
the fog and -smoke which hung thick all
over tho water. A strong southerly cur
rent was setting In and I found the ship
drifting rapidly Inshore, weeping us
round in semllclrcle towards Clatsop
Beach, Inside Tillamook Head. - The sails
were put up on the foremast and main
mast but M they , were absolutely use
less, I ordered them furled and dropped
both anchors in sixteen fathoms of wa
ter. After dragging-In still closer to
shore for some minutes the current
seemed to lose its force and we held by
cur chains in this epot, where we have
been riding for nearly 2i hours. Two or
tluee times I was very much afraid we
would go to destruction without the pos
sibility of any help coming to us. . The
eea was smooth, but fog hung around us
thick till about four o'clock, when it
lifted, enabling the operator at the Cape
to make out our signals and send us
assistance." .
There Is no doubt that the position of
the vessel was a very, dangerous one,
Had the ocean not been cleared of smoke
by light winds yesterday afternoon she
would have been compelled to withstand
another strong southerly current last
night, with the great probability of her
chains parting. It wold have taken
about ten minutes under these clrcum
Btances to have thrown her Into the
breakers on the rocks northwest of Tilla
mook Head. She was anchored with Til
lamook Head' B. 8. 3., and Tillamook
Rock 8. 8. B. After proffering any as
sistance in his power to the tugboat,
captain uregory Btood by the vessel un
til the Relief took hold of her and towed
her out to sea, where she dropped her
at l a. m. this morning. The Manzanita
steamed down to Tillamook Rock, to
communicate with the workmen on shoro,
get some orders lor building material,
and then made north for the lightship;
speaking it at lWclock. She arrived at
her dock shortly before midnight.
Airter the fog lifted; and when the
emoke of tho Relief and (Manzanita com
Ing- to the rescue was dlscernabla to the
north'ard, the crew of the Drummond
tilled In the time fishing for salmon from
the deck. They caught fifty-ono tine
nan in an hour, and were beginning to
Bait them down when the steamers reach
ed the ship. Captain Curtis waa very
greatly relieved toy his fortunate es
cape, and thanked Captain Gresrorv nd
Captain McCoy for their timely assist
ance.
The sudden and unexpected call on the
Manzanita broke up a day of the very
greatest enjeymont aboard her. From
early morning she waa thrnnimrt iiih Jo
die and gentlemen who witnessed the
races, ana who were thoroughly oaptl-v-ated
by the successful efforts of Cap
tain Gregory and his officers to make
iiivm leet at nome.

THE CONTRACTORS START WORK
Two Gangs of Meu Now Throwing
Dirt on the Grade for
the Road.
"Whoa, there! Gee! GO Jlong there, 1
tell you!" These and similtr exclama
tions were heard on the dock yesterday
as Superintendent Wattla' men ' were
loading the teams, scrapers, and other
paraphernalia of railroad building pre
paratory to their shipment ti tho va
rious points of action on the line of the
new railroad. A gathering of ordinary
curiosity seekers was much concerned
as to who and what the caravan was,
but no one eeemel to have any Informa
tion. It was developed at headquarters
later In the afternoon, however, that this
was the Arst contingent of men and
teams wCio were to commence work on
the GoW.e rullroad.
Quietly and without flourish of trum
pets the railroad peoplo have boen hard
at work on their plans of construction
and rearranging the surveys of the line,
reducing grades and curvatures In order
that a first-class roadbed might se con'
structed. Considerable criticism and an
xlety has been expressed from time to
time as to when the work of actual con'
structlon should commence, but the rail'
road company has quietly completed its
plans and before any one had knowledge
of the fact had placed two gangs of men
in the field, who are now at work grading
and clearing the right of way.
The contract for the grading and clear
ing was let Tuesday to Messrs. Cory
Bros. & Co., and their superintendent,
Mr. Wattla, yesterday sent a gang of
men and teams to Tongue Point and an'
other to Flavel, and both forces are now
at work throwing dirt and building the
roadway of the new railroad.
An examination of the specifications
Included In the contract for the builders
Is ample evidence that the Astoria-Goble
road is to bo Jlrst-duss in every respect,
and wilt Ibe capable of handling the heav
iest traffic at the highest rate of speed
Specifications for grading and clearing
provide that the roadbed and excavations
shall be twenty feet wide at tho -profile
grade in earth, and sixteen feet in rock
or other similar materials, as tno engin
eers may direct. The roadbed and em.
bankments shall be of uniform, width
of sixteen feet the average width of the
Northern Pacific and other trunkllno
embankments being fourteen feot. The
clearing shall be done for tho entire
width of the right of way, and such tx
tra widths as shall be directed by the
engineers. All brush and limbs of trees
Shall be burned and removed from tne
slopes.
The beginning of work on the onter
priBe which Is to liberate Astoria and
the Columbia river valley from its re
stricted commercial opportunities end
enable the citizens of this natural sea
port and shipping center to place them
selves at the head of commerce on the
Pacific Coast will be hailed with delight
by all. Not only Astoria, but Oregon at
large, should fully appreciate the ad
vantages to be opened to this great state
by the buifdlng of this line of railroad.
There can be no doubt whatever In the
mind of any sane man but what the peo
ple at large fully realize what this enter
prise means to them. There art, how
ever, some few soreheads In Portland
who need to learn a lesson that will
sooner or 'later be forced upon them that
Astoria Is to be the shipping port of the
state, as well as of the Northwest coast.
Her naturaL facilities declare It, and her
geographical location assures it,
Mr. Hammond Is determined to nave
the best possible railroad that can be
built, and the citizens cannot do less than
to stand unitedly with him in the effort
to make the enterprise successful In
every respect. The mere building of the
ralh-oad will not bring the traffic twhieh
Is to make the road successful and build
up the town. Transcontinental railroads
must be brought to this point and they
will be if Mr. Hammond receives the
support he ought to have. It Is not sim
ply necessary to have one transconti
nental connection, but in ordjr to fully
meet all the demands of trade and be
enabled to reach all market on an even
baBls there should be connection with
lines reaching the South, Southeast, th
Bast and Northeast. That such com
binations are possible and mora than
probable, anyone familiar with tno rail
road map of today well knows.
Mr. Hammond leaves tonight for Port
land and Corvallls, where other business
of Importance In connection with the old
Oregcn Pacific requires his attention.
He will be absent a few days but In the
mesn time has given such Instructions
snd so started the wheels of construction
that his chief officers and lieutenants
can proceed with the work. This Is a
great day for Astoria, and no doubt the
regatta festivities will be made to cele
brate the event.

. LASSOED A SBA LION. .
A Venturesome Hunlber Has a Narrow
Esjape From. Drowning.
Sao Francisco Examiner.
C. F. Monroe, a resident of Fresno
county, Who lhau ibeen spending some
weeks In llhils vicinity humming and flsh
Ifig, principally on tlhe coast, met with
an xpenUuce Wednesday last which
nearly cost him his life.
Monroe, who had been camping in the
rediwouda near Usai, discovered, while
riding on Uie beach, ejme miles south
of Dur Harbor, a group of sea lions sun
ning themselves, He determined to get
a vtiJt at one. Aocordln&Cy dismounting
he VJtsjerib.it a wCds ejete and came
upJn thtn unawares. Walbchlng them
for some momenta, he finally took aim
and fired, 'but his aim was untrue, and,
though, wounding the lion severely, the
animal was still able to flounder about,
and was making all posslbOe haste to get
back to the water agin.
Being an expert with Uhe tacso, M'on
roe: undertook to capture the creature,
and, mounting his hone, he unloosed his
rope and itlhrew It over the lion's head
and behind one of its flippers, then tak
ing a turn with lh rope around the pum
mel of Oils saddle. Notwithstanding the
wounded condition of the lion, it still
struggled towjrJa the (water. It wos not
long before all were floundering in the
surf. Monroe flnatly succeeded In loosing
the nope from the pummel of the saddle,
when he found he had forgotten to un
fasten it from t'he horse's meek. Being in
the surf, i't wias too dangerous to now
try and cut It, and, to save himself, ho
cast adntflt his faithful animal' and strug
gled if or the ahore, which he reached in
an exhausted condition. He saw his
horse but once afterward, and it Was then
being towed to sea. It wlas found next
manning on the beach. -
It seems that in eome way the rope
waa broken and 'Ithe Utowned horse was
cast upon the sand. The body of the
sea lion waa not found. . Monroe says
chore may be a great deal .of fun hunt
ing eea S'lons, but from his experience
hunting on land is good enough for him.
UNSATISFACTORY ''
Was Yesterday's Professional Footrace,
A great deal of Interest was centered
yesterday afternoon In the professional
100 yards footrace, for a purse of (75.
The race was programed to come off at
2:30. An hour before that time ropes
were stretched on each side of the street
to keep the big crowd from Interfering
with the runners. When tho 14th. Infan
try Band marched through the course
heralded by Grand Marshal Trenchard,
and playing "Marching Thro' Georgia,"
both sides of Commercial street leading
from Allen's grocery store to the Gam
brlnua saloon, were block with peoplo.
At 2:30 the sprinters made their appear
ance on the track and took positions for
the start. Four Inon were entered In
the race, Jack Clark, Tom FoBter, Wm.
Ray and Charles Klplinger. After a
nurrrlier of false starts on tho part of
Foster and Clarke, whldl resulted In
their being placed back from the starting
point a distance of four or five yards,
the men got off. Ray and Klplinger had
a big lead but Foster soon overtook the
latter, coming In at the tape .four feet
behind Ray, who was awarded the race.
Considerable dissatisfaction existed on
the result of the race many being of the
opinion that had Foster not been so
heavily handicapped he would have won.
