THE OPENING DAY Beautiful Weather and a Most Excellent Program. SOME VERY EXCITING RACES All the Wharves Lined With Thous- ands of Happy and Enthusi astic Pleasure Seekers. For once the weather prophets are able to 'wear smiling and donfldenlt counle- nanoo, an J their iprognois'tlcaiXlons have brought them up 'to Who Pague level with out having gono through, a course of government training. Ever since Satur day they flaw been predicting beautiful weather, and a (spanking afternoon breeze for the opening day, and they hit lit oorrectty. The imornlng broke uiloh. a Chick smoke mil ov.r tihe bay and throughout the city, tout at 9 o'clock. Just j the Columbine was making prepara tions too haul away from Hus.'.w'e dock a lig'h't 'breeze sprung up and In halt an hiour swept away all the haze.- The sky waa talmodt cloudless a'nd on thi rivtr the water hardily showed a ripple. Ait iU o'clock it he flagship got uway into nndsirtuim, and anchored oft itavei's diock fronting several tWouaand people wlno lined the wharves and grand stand, and wlhio greeted her with, cheers as she Btvung round on her chalins and made ready for opening tihe day's proca.dings. tha Udh Infantry Band, who occu pied a space at itihe back tot Ithe girand Bjand mude ima'tteiris lively all mkrntag, amd played tj;veral popular and classical eoleoDlons. In a most excellent manner. Imcteed rw organiza'tlon of the kind tihat haa ever visited Aisljjfia. has deUgh-ted people 00 much. The morning races iwere all Btunted off clioae to pavgram time, and thanks to the efficiency of the Judges and starters there were mo dreary wai'ta. At noon Uie Columbine ran- In to Flavel's dock and after an hour for lunch ehe fJ:artcd out again for the channel and superintended opfcraUons uriUl the con clusion of the sailing races. Outside of 'the excitement naturally aroused by some splendid and) close con'tedta, the afltemoon events developed considerable enthusiasm 1y reason of tihe magnifies nt picture .the conitesttag boaita formed nearly the 'Whiole distance round . the course. Sloops, Bohooners, scows, and Whlte'lia'.ls all of thvm wl'Wi generous spread's of canvas and all making good time with a spanking breeze beihind them sJood out against 't'he blue sky and the Waishlng'tO'n hilla In bold relief, making aiit'ogeoher such a Bcone of anlm'ation and ever changing conditions that every body in the vast crowd of on-tookers caught tfh tiplrit of the occasion and "made ihollday" In reaUty. At a little before 5 o'clock When Captain Howes announced In a double Ifarrelfied report tihe olosi of the day's evemts with, the ar rival of the old Salmon Himttr off the finifeh line everybody wenit away home to discuss and dream on the events of the day, and to hi ready bright and early tMj -morning for a second and evn more interesting program. On t'he Alarm, and conducted in good sliape by Captain W. E. Farrell, were two Judges, Captain Edwards and Cap tain Brawn, of Portland. They patrolkd the mcdilte channel all day toeiiween the first and second stake boars and. In Ad dition to the work of watching tlie con testing boats, performed a grealt deaJ of othe. very necessary work with neatness and dlspuitcih, rendering considerable a slptauce to t'he officials on the flagship and doing everything that (was asked of them in a sensible amd business like way. The little Ida Hazel, Poking beautifully trim dn hvr regatta oolora, carried Cap tain Gregory, Mr. Peter Grant, and other regatta, ofltters ating from- the starting poin-t 'to the first turning buoy and back from earty imornlng to the close of ijhe racing. It is unnecessary to add that Iv t work was looked attar in real Sailor fashion, and thia't ha genial eklppep of the Manzanlta found plenty to do and did lit (well. The Columbine, declo.d out from bow to atenn with bright fUgj and) carrying the commodore's pennant on tier truck, was a scene or gaiety and very pleisant social Intercounsj all day. She left her dock dn the imornlng with a large number of ladle and gentlemen, Invited aboard at the invitation of t'ho kipper end Judges, and after Hunch etart:d out with still more people and ithe city band. The Astoria musicians prayed several chain ing airs during her second stay at an chor and everybody aboard thoroughly enjoyed the delightful experiences of the outing. Captain' Richardson on the bridge was in company with the starter, Cap tain Howes, and the flagship Judge, Mr. P. L. Cherry, the official time-keeper, Mr. E. J. Smith, and membi.rs of the press. Among the ladies and gentlemen on deck wre several Portland and San Francisco visitors, Commander Faren holt and Mr. A. B. Hammond and fam ily. Ctommodore Richardson, It need hardly be said, looked after his guests as only a perfect host can do, and on this occasion his unfiling courtesy and desire to do the honors of his liandcome vessel, in the moA complite way, were very marked and very greatdy appreciat ed. The members of the newspaper fra ternity particularly are Indebted to him for, considerable axtotatanc In many ways, and the Aatorian Is glad of the op portunity to make (acknowledgements. Captain Howes was in his element, and In fact two or three times overstepptd all bounds by expressing the desire to snoot somebody or something with shot ted cartridges. Before the day was over he had learnt about seventeen new ways cf firing a gun, tout, beyond giving the bridge the appearance of a battle field and Uttering R up considerably with brown paper wadding, he did little dam age. The red and .white colors of Lite CdCumbine wtre mixed profusely with the blue and whKe ritAon of the A. Y. C. In the costumes of alt the ladies aboard. The vry great improvement ovr last year made by the committee hi the ar rangement of a start double coarse (or the Bailing races was commended by, everybody, and was no &8bt reipontrbie for much of the ervtbiralasm called forlb by the afternoon events. , Unhappily the day's pleasure was to a great extenlt marred for some Aatorian by the lamentable and moat distressing drowning accident referred to at length elsewhere dn .theme columns. The action of tiho committee In placing railings at either end of the grandstand ashore yesterday was considerably 'com mented on. It was generally unckrtsood when thebendhes were erected that a space of twenty feet should be left In front of the stand, out to the edge of Che dock.' In order that the public might not lose tihut much standing room. Such a privilege tt had been Oound would dis commode grandstand; spectators, as to; lowest seaibs aire not above standing level and under the circumstances the commltteeVi action was perfectly correct. The following Is Ithe program today: Flrtlt raoe Hoae race, championship first; $126; eecond, 50. Second Gig, " rowing; J10. Third Man-of-war and lighthouse itciv der crews: first. J25: second, $10.

Barneburg dill nUt finish. Tompkins came out In a feuthenwelght skiff 'Weighing about one ifhlrd as much as Btumeburg's Whitehall. The skiff led from the start, and rounded Ithe buoy ten lengths ahead. Barneburg held on till nearly abreast of the Olutsop 'Mill, and then pulled Into th O. iR. and N. dock and gi&ve up the race. The Judges de cided to cam Ithe race off as Tompkins boat was not en totted to any prize under th Whitehall classlflcutlon. It is not probalbde thait the even't mill be con tested again.

P.ve Moults entered for this event. They got well together ait gun fire to a good tftart, land held along In a bunch till they reached the east end of ithe O.

On turning the stake No. 1 fouled, Settum'S tooait and dropped ont of the race, accompanied by No. V whose crew gave out and pulled Into the wharves. On the home run Drlscoll and Svendrujf wiaCked away In gay style from itlheir opponents, and bundling their boat close In swore brough her round with a sweep to tho finish lln la 27 minutes from 'the 'time of starting. The race for second place was the most exalting con test of the day. No. 6, after being fmil ed, gradually overhauled No. 4, and they raced bow and bow for over a mile. As soon as Hlhe crowd isaiw the prospect of a close finish they began Ito take up the cheering, and the laslt five hundred yards was rowed eimld gireait enit'husiafm. Near lng the Columbine Sot turn obtained a lead of a foot, end held It to within about twenty feet of the line. Then Onsvik and his mate rose In their S-aU and by a supreme effort beait No. 6 on their last stroke by 11 Inches, the difference in time being baredy one second. . V. 8. I H. Tenders: Sculling. Manzan'ta's crew, 23 mln. 10 sec 1. Columbine's crew, 24 mln. 11 sec. 2. Naturally enough, as soon as the "ready" gun was fired for tinls event, everybody became Interested, ifor not only were all the contestant well known by the crowd laShore, but the vessels they represented had their partisans In about equal numbers. Nobody was Indifferent, for every one was tttther a Columbine or a Manzanlta admirer. Chief Officer Wll kinson, of Ithe Manmnlta, acted es cox swain for his crew, while Chief Officer LielglHton, of the CMumblne, filled the same office for hor opponent. As soon as the start was nuade, tihe red and white flig of ithe Columbine's 'boat forged ahead and after a few hundred yards had been covered she was leading by about haW a lentlh. The Manzanlta' boys were kefpmg well together, how ever, and did not seem soured of their position. In this order the boat rounded the stakeboat, and as etoon as their nos were pointed for home began racing In real earnest The blue and white pennant on the SBanainila'a represent vtive grad ually came up level iwltfh the leader and half way to the twinning line was run ning side toy side with. her. At this point and for several hundred yards further on, at was anybody's race, und both crews were working their ih&rdest. Inch by Inch the blues fought their way ahead and In a minute itAure was a. full length between them. Then, seemingly spurred on by having cut down the enemy's lead the lauls redoubled tihelr efforts, und in sprte of everything the Columbine's crew could do, ran away to the finish and won by sixty yards. As she swept past Fla vel' wharf the band' of he Foumteetiih struck up "Columbia, Gem of the Ocean," Captain Rlchandbton, generous even In defait, greeted her with a detifent.ig ser ies of flourfefhies on the flagship's whistle, and the ' crowds cheered themselves hoarse. The Cohnbine's men received a no less hearty ovation as they crossed the line. Captain Gregory, who followed the race in the Ida Hazel, was too full of excitement and Joy to y.H, and he exe cuted a pa de seul before some thous ands of admiring spectators; which stamps hm orver as en amateur stage dancer of very decided merit. The Man zanita'S men rowed In a new surf boat nnd certainly had) the best of U In this respect, trie Columbine's craft being handicapped by very large nt and other obstructions to fast rowing. It is probahle Ifcsr the craws will have a race before the regatta Is over. If they do tt will be worth, going a long wuy to see. Whitehalls:-Double Sculls. L. E.

The morning iwas thick and foggy, and Hlnnuui was going over the (track on bis : r,vllrouil bicycle und did not hetvr.tha approaCiilng tralh. The,, engineer could not see t'he mam and was not awtare of his being on the track. When too late, Uie figure of lllmmin loomed up 'through, tine mt-lt Just ahead of the engine. The inevitable crash came and Hiniman W4is thrown ftwm the track and one leg oom pleter.y eavered below tihe kn:. The train was stopped as quickly us possible and itfhe mam carried to Ilwaco, where he was placed hi the depot. Three phy Blclans, Vrg.

Mr. LcKwnia, president of the railroad, says tholt he haU frequently cautioned Hiniman labout using t'he bicycle, and on this particular morning told hint that the truin was due in a few momenta, and he had better not attempt the trip. Hln man, however, who was lute In .gelttl'ng to his work lUhiit imorning, disregarded Mr. Loomls' instructions and stiatlng to the man in Charge of the bicycle that he had permission to use it, procured the machine and started' down the road ahead of the train.

The party were on their way 4o Asto ria to attend tihe regatta and oirried no light in their boat, having understood Chat the steamer had passed. This was the cause of the Ocean Ware not seeing them und was really carelessness on the part of the tWhermen Wlno were calling the boat.
