The Hist stop of the special train was
made at Warrenton where all were
given an opportunity of Inspecting the
new depot and the Improvements being
made at that point. The depot building
la a commodious one, constructed on
modern plans, llnlahed In hard wood,
and a model of convenience for the buii
Iihkb of the public and the company.
It stands In the eimt end of the Y where
the road awltehea off from the main line
for Flavel. While the train stood at
the depot yesterday the last spike was
driven on the new Y connecting the
main line with the branch on the right
hand aide, and the excursion train waa
the tlrat train to pnaa over the new
track. The whistle Bounded and the
train moved on to the shop, yards near
Alder Creek. Here another stop waa
made while the guests were given an
opportunity to Inspect the huge piles
of steel rails, the storehouse, and the
general plana for the Improvements
soon to be made at that point. It was
much of a surprise to the majority of
the people on the train to see the tre
mendous steel rails piled up like cord
wood In stacks as high as a house, and
they begin to reallite something of the
stability and general excellent charac
ter of the railroad now under construc
tion. Some twenty-four piles or stands
of rails were counted, and the founda
tions were being laid for another one,
us the party stood there In open-mouthed
wonder. After some of the gentle
men had counted all the rails In sight,
the train moved on to New Astoria, or
tho end of the line. Here was seen the
site of Mr. M. J. Kinney's new salmon
cannery and the whole plan of the lit
tle town was explained by Dr. Alfred
Kinney. It la but a stone's throw from
Fort Stevens, where the government
is now lining a large amount of Import
ant work. The full plans and specifi
cations for the Kinney cannery have
been completed by tho architect and In
clude eleven buildings, 30x120 feet, and
one central building 60x120 feet, ranged

dlsplayi-d In stowing U' h an enormous
ijuantlty of steel rail In the compara

Captain Thompson said It was all In

measurement showed that both vessel

as space was roncerni'd, had they tieen

to a wonder. i
Mr. Ennls presented himself at the
local headquarters of the Republican
party yesterday and asked to be nat

clerks started back In amazement. They
were more startled when he said:!
"Faith, an' I mean It."
"It'a Maurice O'Connor made up like

that he was entitled to the papers

o'clock this morning the Pacific Coast

two miles tnm- this city. She wa en
route from S.m Francisco to Round
point and carried about seventy pas

Seattle. Sept. 2S The steamer Uma
tilla struck a submerged rock near
where the bark David Headley waa
wrecked some year ago, lost sixteen
feet of her keel, and tore a ragged hole
In her bottom, through which the water
poured in torrents. The passengers had
a narrow escaie from being compelled
to embark in the small boats.
The Cmatilla left Victoria shortly af
ter midnight in charge of Capt. II. H.
Lloyd, a pilot of twenty years' expe
rience, and Capt. J. C. Hunter, the Bhlp'
commander. The weather was densely
foggy, and against a strong ebb tide
the steamer headed for Port Townsend.
She had landed over half of her pas
sengers and a large jKirtlon of her
freight at Victoria. At intervals the
whistle was regularly sounded, but the
course from Victoria d'fs not bring the
ship near any headlands, consequently
only a very dim echo could be heart.
The ebb tide sweeping dow n on the port
beum of the steamship, swung her a
point of two off her course, heading the
vessel directly toward the wrecked
bark Hoadley. three-fourths of a mile
west of Port Wilson. That was In thf
proximity of a very low neck of laud
which lies behind an abrupt bluff that
commands Point Wilson.
The sounding of the whistle brought
back no echo. From the top of Mor
gan's hill, the background of Port
Townsend, through the thin mist over
hanging the dense bonk of black fog,
could be discerned the brightness of the
eltrlc lights. To add to the unfortu
nate condition of affairs, It Is alleged
that the fog whistle on Point Wilson
was not blowing. Many masters of ves
sels coming Into port lately have made
similar complaint, and at times other
captains have averred that the whistle
was blowing regularly.
A special from Port Townsend to the
Post-lntelllgencer says that late this
evening Pilot Lloyd came ashore and
denied that the vessel struck Lllby
rock. He pays she tlrst struck on an
extension of the rocky submerged pe
ninsula inside the buoy. She began to
fill and the engines w ere reversed which
carried her off shore. She was headed
for Port Tow nsend, w hen It became ap
parent she could not reach port and then
It was decided to beach her. Captain
Hunter Is staying by the ship. The
passengers were all landed safely as

THE PERRY COMING.
Assigned to Astoria After the Disband
ing of the Hehting Sea Fleet.
Seattle, Wn., Sept. 29. The I'nlted
States revenue cutter Grant arrived
here today, nine days out from Ounal
aska. She is the first of the Behring
Sea fleet to come from the north this
season, and reports all well. The cut
ters cruising In the North Pacific and
Behring Sea were the Wolcott, Grant,
Perry, Corwln, Rush and Bear, and up
to the date of the disbanding of the
fleet tluy had cruised 79,000 miles and
boarded sealing schooners 182 times.
The cruisers Satellite, Icarus and
Pheasant, of the British navy, acted in
conjunction with the American fleet.
Seven schooners were seized during the
summer for violation of the regulations
of the Paris award. The James G. Swan,
Port Townsend; Joan Gray, San Fran
cisco; Alnoka and Viva, Victoria, and
the Beatrice, Vancouver, were seized
for being found within the closed area
of 60 miles from the Prlbyloff Islands.
The Sitka, of Juneau, was seized for
sealing In the North Pacific without a
license, and the Aurora, of Victoria, for
shooting seals In Behring Sea,
There were 55 schooners engaged In
sealing in Behring Sea after August 1,
three quarters of them being British
vessels. The weather has been favora
ble for sealing, but the seals have been
scarce and the average catch hns been
little over half that of the season of
1S95. The Hear reached Point Barrow,
closed the relief station there and
brought away the keeper. She also
brought to Ounalaska the Rev. Sheldon
Jackson, Bishop Rowe, of the Frotest
ant Episcopal church, Louis Schloss Jr.,
and Rudolph Newman, of the Alaska
Commercial Company, and the mate
and eleven seamen of th wrecked
whaler Hidalgo, these last named being j
given free transportation on other cut
ter to Puget Sound and Han Fran-
Cpn the disbanding of the fleet the
P..ar and firant were assigned ,o the ;
Puget Hound station; the Corwln to!
San Diego; th Perry to the Columbia!
River station; and the Rush to Han I
Franriwo. The Wolcott wa assigned !
temporarily to the Hltk. .tation, and ,
the Hear will not leave Behring Kea for '
another month. The Kuh will remain
at Hltk. until the completion of the trial
of the schooner Sitka. The Satellite and 1
Icarus were still at Ounalaska on the !
d-parture of the Grant. The Perry Is I
expected to reach Astoria In a few days, '
