THE COMING OF
A BIG LOG RAFT,
It Contains the Piling for
the New Union Ferry-
Depot.
LEFT ASTORIA SATURDAY
Consignments of Fruit Heaped

Wharf.

A Lost and Bewildered Band of Sheep
That Followed a Tall
Policeman.
A monster raft of logs, the largest ever
floated into this harbor, will come down
from Stella, a lumber port on the Colum
bia River, to-morrow or next day. It will
contain 560,000 iineal feet of piling, all of
which will be used in the construction of
the ferry-slips of the new union depot and
other work on the water front.
The great raft is cigar-shaped, about 500
feet long, with 50 feet beam and a depth of
30 feet. Nearly sixty tons of chain have
been used to bind the immense bundle of i
piles together, and the manner in which
they are bound in one compact mass is
most ingenious.
The chains are run lengthwise, cross
wise and in every way imaginable to re
sist the twisting blows of the waves.
The first raft started from the Columbia
River to this City several years ago went
to pieces, entailing- a great loss on the
owners, who adopted that cheap and :
practical method of getting their lumber
to market.
The logs are piled into the proper shape
in an immense cradle, which is built in
the water. The huge spruce tree-trunks
are floated into this space and "jecked"
into position, and as log is heaped upon
log; the mass sinks, permitting the con
struction of the raft to progress compara
tively without difficulty.
Tnis cradle device has been patented by .
the owners in order to protect their raft
industry against competition. The en

tire concern has cost them $30,000, includ
ing insurance and towage.
The second raft was successfully brought
to San Francisco by the steamer Minola
last year and sold to the Southern Pacific
Railroad Company. All three were built
by Bains & Kobertson of Stella, the first
two with the assistance of outside capital.
The tirm has undertaken this third ven
ture alone.
The raft was floated to Astoria last Sat
urday, thence out to «ea by the tug Ac
tive, when it was taken in tow by the
Minola for this harbor.
The produce glut is on again and the
water front is jammed with fruit. Great
heaps are piled on Jackson and Washinz
ton street wharves, and the surplus is stjll
growing. The commission dealers are |
standing around among their overflowing j
baskets, boxes and crates and wondering
what is to be done with the consignments
that come to them almost every hour.
Yesterday a large number of peaches
and pears were thrown overboard and the
tide carried them up tne bay — possibly on
up the Sacramento River to the ranches
from which they were fhipped.
The packages are piled hi<?h toward the ;
freightshed roofs, and the nock employes
are shifting them around trying to make
space for the coming consignments.
The dealers say that if the shippers will
hold their fruit for a few days the market
-will be somewhat clear, but to continue
the rush into the City will only necessi
tate the dnmpin.2 of much of the ship
ments into the bay.
The British* ship Port Douglas arrived
yesterday, 147 days from Antwerp, On
the passage John Hoimoerg, seaman, was
washed off the jibboom during rough
weather, and drowned. He was a native
of Sweden, aged 37. J. Tamm, seaman,
26 years old, died of heart disease and was
buried at eea.
' Chief Steward Benjamin Crosby of the
City of Para died of heart-disease on the
6th ir.st., during the voyage of the steamer
from Panama to this City, and was buried
at sea in the Gulf of Tehuantepec, Charles
Smith, a coal-passer of the tame vessel,
died on June 26, and was buried at sea.
A bewildered band of s-heep, on their
way to Butchertown, created considerable
amusement for a gang of boys and trouble
for the drivers for several hours on the
water front yesterday afternoon. They
darted here and there into streets and al
ley-ways, leading their pursuew a weary
chase.
The band huddled into corners and re
fused to move and at one point they held

Foresters Have an Outing.
Court Huburtns No. 15, Foresters of Amer

yesterday. Tue day was spent in games and
dancing, the lower pavilion being well at"

occasion was most eujoyable, much of the suc

energy of the committee of arrangements,
which was as follows: Hunry Hart, Julius Bei

A BIG REWARD OFFERED

SHUN MOH'3 NARROW ESCAPE.
Fire Marshal Towe Will Spare No
Pains to Bring the Culprit
to Justice.
Fire Marshal Towe has not as yet found
the Chinese who attempted to set fire to
the overall factory of Shun Mon at 509)4
Washington street on the night of Friday
last. He has learned, however, that an
other Chinese overall factory conducted
by Woo Kee at 41G Battery street has
been threatened by the organization com
posed of Chinese laborers that is supposed
to be at the bottom of the attack on Shun
Mon.
It was stated last night by several Cni
nese merchants that this organization has
a membership of about 600 Chinese.
It is known as the Sewing Union, or the
Cum Yee Tong Society. The present presi
dent is one Long Li, who has yet three
months to serve as governor of the so
ciety's schemes, and it was also stated that
Long Li is a meraber of the highbinders'
society. It seems that Woo Kee has been
twice accused within the past two weeks;
first of some indefinite offense, expressed
in Chinese-English as being a "scoundrel,"
and second of embezzlement. His case on
this latter charge will come up in court
next Friday. This case was entered at the
instance of Wang Long.
Wa Shing, who haS an overall factory at
413 Commercial street, and who is a
brother of Sbung Mon, hires now only
union men, but last year he had trouble
with the Sewing Union, and a price wa3
put on his head by this society. This diffi
culty was, however, smoothed over.
The elaborate and cumbersome inge
nuity of the Chinese brain is well illus
trated in the odd infernal machine that
was found in Sbung Mon's stairway.
In imagination the murderous coolie
who devised the scheme saw the oil from
the bottle running out drop by drop, sat
urating the dry, worm-eaten floor. The
fire on the punk all this time eating its
way down to the sulphurous heads of the
matches which, igniting, would burn long
and fiercely enough to set fire to the boards
of the floor.
The fact of the oil running down the
punksticks and extinguishing their fire
did not occur to bim. Therefore his dia
bolical scheme failed.
"Shun Mon," said Fire Marshal Towe,
"is as brave as a lion. He is the whitest
Chinaman I have ever mot. I will follow
this thing as far as possible. This reward
of $250 will do much toward finding tbe
culprit. I have let it be known that the
man who gives me correct information on
this need not be known nor serve as a wit
ness.
"Section 109 of order 2927 of the Fire
Code gives me full authority to give this
reward. It is a very difficult matter,
though, to get a clew from Chinamen. It
is always 'No sabe'; then they shut their
mouths like clams.
"It is a new thing for the Chinese to re
sort to incendiarism. There are com
paratively few fires in Chinatown. This
building in which is Shun Mon's foctory
is one of the worst firetraps in town. Had
the building really been fired he weuld
have undoubtedly lost his life."
AT THE PLAYHOUSES.
The Attractions That Are Offered for
This Evening at the Various City
Theaters.
"The Gay Parisians," to be presented at
the Baldwin Theater this evening, is one
that had a run of 200 nights in Mew York
and was on for 100 at Boston. William J.
Furgeson and Sadie Martinot will appear
in tne leading parts.
"The Great Unknown" has done so well
at the Columbia Tneater the management
has decided to keep the play on this even
ing and for the balance of the week. When
a good play draws the management of this
house knows better than take it off.
"The Minstrel of Clare," to be offered at
the California Theater to-night with
Chauncey Olcott in the lead, is a new play,
one that met with much success in the
East. In this play Olcott will sing several
songs, including "Home," a very popular
one. A delegation of the Knights of the
Red Branch will attend to bqow their ap
preciation of Mr. Olcott.
The favorite opera, "It Trovatore," is
what tbe management of the Tivoli Opera
house will offer to the patron? of that
bouse to-night. Miss Flora Finlayson,
prima donna contralto, will make her first
appearance this evening, supported by
the members of the company.
That interesting naval play, "The En
sign," is what those who go to the Grand
Opera-House to-night will see. It is a
play that is full of love, patriotism and
loyalty to the American flag. James M.
Brophy will appear in the title role.
There are many attractive features at
the Orpheum, but "the" show at this time
is Kennedy, the hypnotist, whose antics
with people under his will create roars of
laughter. Miss MiJdred Howard is to ap
pear to-night in her sensational Trilby
dance.
The doors of the Macdonough Theater
in Oakland, which have been closed for
some time, will be reopened this evening
wita the Empire stock company, which
will present that sterling play, "The
Masqueraders." On Tuesday "Bohemia"
will be given.
There will be plenty of outdoor and in
door amusement at the Chutes to-night.
Rides on the'ehutes or on the great scenic
railway are very enjoyable, and the enter
tainment in the Casino is always of an in
teresting character.
TOOK TWO ENGINES.
The Cazadero Excursion a Grand Suc
cess— Another Next Sunday.
Locke's reserved-seat excursion to Caza
dero, Duncans Mills and the Russian
River red woods yesterday was a grand
success.
Every seat on the train of ten cars and
smoker was sold, and between 200 and 300
applicants bad to tn refused tickets, be
cause the train was limited. As it was, it
required two of the heaviest engines of the
North Pacific Coast Railroad to whirl the
train to its destination, with a thirdengine
to belp out on the heavy grades.
The arrangements were complete for the
comfort of the excursionists, and Mr.
Locke received many congratulations for
fats success in conducting his excursions
on modern lines. It was a strictly first
class party, such as is generally seen on
week-day excursions, and a noticeable
feature was the absence of boisterous
people.
To accommodate tnose who could not co
yesterday another special train will be run
to Cazadero next Sunday at tne popular
rate of $1 50. with Beats reserved, like
theater seats. Tickets should be secured
at Mr. Locke's office, 333 O'Farrell street,
where the sale will begin next Wednesday

OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDY.
When Artists Return From Meeker
Grove a Dinner Will Be Given
to Fred Yates.
The picture painted Dy William Keith,
which so fascinated Fred Yates, will be
placed on exhibition in this City and then
sent to London. Mr. Yates has visited
the school of design at the Mark Hopkins
Institute of Art and talked with many of
the resident artists since his arrival last
Wednesday. He recognizes that San
Francisco artists are doing excellent work
and speaks highly of the advantages
which the San Francisco Art Association
peesents to students on the Pacific Coast.
A dinner In honor of Mr. Yates will be
given at the Bohemian Club, but tne event
will not occnr untii tne artists who are
now in the redwoods of the Russian River
return. The preparations for the midsum
mer high jinks have called many artists
to Meeker's grove.
Mr. Yates' studio in London is visited
by many Americans, and he has had the
pleasure of entertaining Mark Twain,
Alexander Harrison, Theodore Wores, and
others, there. When he returns to Eng
land he will probably paint the portrait
of Jerome K. Jerome. He has several
commissions in tbe United States, so he
may not sail from New York until late in
October.
His sojourn in San Francisco after an
absence of seven years affords him special
delight. Nevertheless, he records the ob
servation that as a young artist in this
City he had many a hard struggle to keep
the wolf from the door of bis domicile.
Recalling his ea?ly experiences as a
student, he says now that he earned in
Italy more knowledge in the art of paint
ing portraits than he ever acquired in
France.
Mr. Yates is a member of the Hogarth
Club and the New English Art Club of
London. From the latter organization
several of the associate members of the
Royal Academy have recently been drawn.
His first offering to the Royal Academy,
which be regarded as an excellent head,
was "chucked." Yates called Shannon to
see the picture and explain wherein it
was deficient. Shannon asserted that in
Eneland there were not six men who
could surpass the work, therefore he ad
vised Yates to persevere. Tbe result of
the persevering was the admission of sub
sequent pictures to the academy.

"A Lfon in the Way." He spoke of the
lion as being the many forms of wicked
ness in our community. "Indolence pro
duces cowardice," said he. "What we
want to do is to take the lion out of our
way, as David did when the wild beasts
attacked his flock.
"Danger is no excuse for indolence," he
continued. "We find the lion on nearly
every street corner, the saloon. Another
lion is the bouse of shame that goes hand
in hand with the saloon. It is the duty of
every citizen to see that these dens are
taken out of the way.
"Danger," he concluded, "will disappear
when you face it It is better to be de
vonred trying to conquer the lion than be
slain by it while lying idle."
