bout between Joe Choynnkl and Denver ,
Kd Smith tonight was cut short by'
Fieferee Itoche. who Btopped the bout
after two minutes and eight seconds of
fighting li the fourth round.
Smita frequently took hold of Cboyn-
skl'a hand during th first three rounds
and was roundly hissed for doing so.
Choynnki had any easy task, for h? ,
knucked Smith down hi the first rounl)
and the Denver man took nearly the
full ten seconds In getitng to his fee:, t
Choynskl was always ready with left
Jat and sent them om Smith's face'
repeatedly. At the close of the third;

Choynskl'a body in the clinches. The .
foul tactics of Smith in the fourth '
round made the referee caution him.

Powers to End the War.
New Y'ork. ilay 10. A Journal dis

Prime Minister RalU says the Greek
trooa will be withdrawn from Crete.
The government having meed of all
troops, he said, has decided on grad
ually withdrawing our army from
Crete. This would also facilitate ar
rangements with the powers which j
have been officially intimated. Greece
has officially notified the foreign minis-1
ters of her Intention to withdraw from
Crete and has demanded admission of
Greeks ships within the blockade for
Greece now awaits the official oter
of the great powers to make proposals
of ieace between her and Turkey, if
they please, but w ill not ask for it. An
official note fixnm the powers will proba
bly be presented at once and ail de- j
pends on Its terms. The report In the
papers of an armistice is not true, but
an armistice will probably be agreed
upon if ;eaiv negotiations are opened.

When the Astoria Iron Works se
cured the 120,000 contract from the gor
ernment for repairing and remodeling
the light house tender Manzanita, As
toria's neighbors on the Sound, the Wil
lamette river and at the Golden Gate,
ail predicted that the Manzanita could
not even be drawn out of the water
upon the ways prepared for her at
Smith's Point. Ten days ago the ship
was turned over by the government
to the Astoria Iron Works, and last
Friday the work of stripping her and
removing the butters wae completed
at the bonded warehouse dock. Sunday
he was towed around to Smith's Point
and yesterday, the weather being fine
and very favorable to the undertaking,
at 9 o'clock in the morning President
John Fox and Superintendent Harry
Anderson, a ship carpenter of long ex
periioe, oonunenced the work of
hauling the snip out of the water upon
the ways. It is safe to say that a more
successful Job of the kind was never
liong before the appointed hour hun
dreds of citizens and all the water
front man, including Captain Gregory,
of the Manzanita, and Chief Engineer
Rleor-ls, who are overseeing the work
for the government; Captain Randall,
of the Relief, and many cithers, bad
gathered at the shipyards to witness
the novel sight In Astoria of rawing
a large vessel from the water upon the
ways. After fjhe cradle was propely
fitted to the bottom of the ship, the
tackle and gearing all in place and
every detail ci. re fully arranged, the
word was given, the power applied,
and slowly the Manzanita began to rise
from the waters where she had been In
service for so long a time, while
shout went up from the throng of anx
ious spedtators. Not a hitch occurred,
or a screw loosened anywhere, but
steadily, at about the rate of one foot
per minute, the good ship walked out
on the land and was finally settled la
her place, where, during the next ninety
days, she will undergo a great change.
Capt. Gregory and Chief Rioords were
highly pleased with the success of the
work and warmly congratulated
Messrs. Fox and Anderson end their
corps of efficient workmen.
Captain Randall, who hasj had much
exeprience in such matters, said to an
Astorlan representative that he never
saw a cleaner, better and more success
ful piece of work of its kind. "It Is
now more than probable that vessels
which have hitherto annually been
called from the Columbia river to San
Francisco to have thekr bottoms clean
ed will now have that work done at
Does any one doubt that the Initial
steps have been taken towards the se
curing of a regular dry dock, needed
more than any other one thing, per
