Grubb, San Francisco; C. H. Callender, Knappton; F. O. Taylor and wife, Knappa, and W. J. Ingalls, Chad well, were guests of the Occident yesterday. The fury of the storm last night de molished many sign boards and de stroyed a number of panes of glass in residences and business houses which were particularly exposed to the gale. Few people were on the streets, much preferring to be under shelter. The average, boy now dreams of roast turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies.

Between 10 o'clock yesterday morning and 8 'clock ln th evening the baronv j eter sank twenty-three one-hundredths. Observer Grover says Uie barometer al ways commences to rise Just before the worst part of the storm. Accord ing to that rule the worst of the present gale has not been seen. The gales of the last two or three days have been something unusual In their long continuance. The wind blew yesterday at the rate of sixty to seven ty miles per hour at the Cape, and last night those who were on the streets thought the wind was blowing here at one hundred miles an hour. Captain Burns, who has been in I charge of the operations at the Glen- imorag, left last evening for the scene tam infrram. aa reported yesier day afternoon that the Zinita was breaking up, but an effort will be made to save as much of the ship as possible, One of the deckhands on tne nwaco brought a Spanish mackerel to the Astorian office yesterday.

Copies of the new train will probably be received in Astoria this week. A well dressed stranger chased his bonnet for four blocks on Commercial street last night and when he finally overtook It merely remarked, "Well, I declare!" A man who wouldn't swear under such circumstances is almost too good to live in Astoria. But the provocation in his case was not near- ly so great as ln that of the lady whose hat blew away and her skirts became entangled around her limbs, preventing her capturing her rolling headgear. My! How fervent was her "thank you" when an Astorian reporter returned her hat The architects and workmen are making a wonderful change In the old Casino Opera House, now known as the Columbia Opera House. The stage Is being enlarged and improved; hand some proscenium boxes are being con structed, and a well arranged balcony around the entire room has been built A new floor has been laid with a proper pitch and handsome opera chairs will be placed In the entire house. The bar room has been turned Into a lobby and everything about the place will be first class. Astoria has long needed a com- fortable and commodious place of amusement, with modern conveniences. and from present appearences .the Col umbla will meet these requirements. Artist Swope Is rapidly completing the large drvp curtain, which will be one ot the handsomest ever shown In this city. The big railroad pll driver belonging to Goerlg Brothers, during the gale yet terday broke loose from Its moorings at the Scow bay depot and started for a cruise on Its own account In the dlrec tton of Knappton. When about half way acrosa the bay the wandering ma chine was discovered, and tha little Occident started out ti bring It back. but the storm was so severe that she had all she could do to take rare ot her self. The Dwyer and Boa Foam man aged to hitch onto It, and after much difficulty towed the unwieldy craft bark to port. It aas rumored last evening that a certain gentleman of the city, of an inquisitive turn of mind, was about to write a letter to Mr. A. B. Hammond for the purpose of ascertaining the ex act day, hour and minute when that gentleman would finish the Astoria railroad Into Goble. Somewhat on the principle that If a man knew what wheat would be worth In ten days from now he might make a fortune, so cer tain property owners In Astoria. If they knew the exact date of the finishing of the railroad, might cover certain deals with profit. Every Indication Is that wheat will be worth more money in the near future, but just when no one can tell. It is known beyond peradven ture ot doubt that the railroad will be completed within the contract time, but Just how much sooner than that time Is uncertain. on Saturday, the 8th of August, a fish boat and net. the latter the proper ty of the Rev. J. J. Walter, were taken from the moorings at Elmore's cannery where they had been left by Captain Wni. True, and were long since given up as lost A few days ago Mr. Tom. Henderson found the boat and cargo floating In Young's river. And as the net Identified itself by the number and lettering, report was made to the owner and the boat and net were towed to the city by the Mayflower Wednesday. It was found that the web had been cut into four pieces and placed ln the bow of the boat, while the lead and cork lines had been cut off and put In the stern. The tent had been raised over th boat While Inquiry was being made after the outfit had been stolen, it Is evident that the thieves hid their booty In one of the bayous In Young's river, to await a favorable opportunity to get away with it. Doubtless the re cent high water floated the boat out and lead to Its discovery. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. At the special meeting of the Cham ber of Commerce held last night, the committee having In charge the matter of the celebration of th twentieth an niversary of the establishment of the chamber, reported that the Columbia River and Puget Sound Navigation Co had offered a rate of t2 for the round trip to The Dalles through the locks at the Cascades, providing fifty passen gers were secured.

HER IDOL SI1ATTICKKIX It aa Hit by an Old Valine, but the Porter Patched It Vp. From Tp-to-Dale, He had Just returned from New York, where he had been called three days before uioit urgent business. The hon eymoon whs scarcely over, and, be rides. It was his first absence since they were united. The three daya had teemed to both like three long years, tlut now he had returned and she was In his arma once mora. Promlae after promise had been renewed, and vows if eternal fidelity sxchalifcvd. "And you will never, never drink daarf aha murmured. "Dearest, you know I have never done so," he, replied In injured tones. "Ar.d you will never gamble, either, dear, will you," she asked. "Precious, I hava never gambled." "And you will never, never use to. baivo again, my Idol," "Never, never agnln, my dear, alnce you wish It so." And she believed him In her woman's way, and all was merry as a marriage bell. Hut he mentioned his vnltse, and a little struggle ensued. He would go and get his valise, he said. No, no, he was tired; she would get it. "No, no" But yes, yes. Was she going to 1st him walk across the room for a nasty old valise, and he so tired? No, Indeed. She would go and get it herself and open It for him, too. And so there. When she said "so there" he knew there was nothing left for him but to submit gracefully, and he submitted. Hut. alas, what followed! She opened the valise. What was In it? One large empty flask. One pack play ing cards new. Three packs ditto- old. One meerschaum pipe. A few po ker chlpa Sundries. That was all. One ot these scenes which "battle all description" followed. But flnaly the porter came and ex plained that he had sent up the wrong valise. Both are slowly recovering. RESOLUTIONS. Whereas, It has pleased the Divine Providence to remove from our midst our fellow member William Ryan; and Whereas, It becomes us as fellow members of Alert Hook and Ladder Company to make some record of our sorrow at the loss of so faithful a member and so worthy a friend, and now, therefore, be It Rejiqived, That In tha death of Will iam Ryan, Alert Hook and Ladder Company has lost one of ts mtt effi cient members, the community one of Its beat and most respected cltlxms, and its brother firemen a friend true and tried, honest and upright In all the walks of life. He commanded the respect and esteem of atl who knew him, and while bending with true hu miiity to the Divine will, we cannot help but feel that we can 111 afford to lose so good a man. Resolved, That these resolutions shall be spread upon the minutes of this company, a copy presented to his brother, and published In the daily papers of this city. K. N. FLOKINE. JOHN MAOI'IKIJ, J. r. BADOLLET, Committer. GOOD ONLY ONE WAY. Among Hie railroad novelties brought out by the election is a straight, one way, local trip ticket, Invented by Louisville passenger official. Robert Wright, secretary to President A. B. Stlckney, of tht-J Chicago Great West ern. distributed samples among his friends yesterday. The ticket Is print ed on gold leaf and reads: "Salt River Packet Co. Good for One Trip. Bryan to Obscurity. Not good for return pas sage." The ticket is numbered "16-2-1." Tetter, eczema, and all similar skin troubles are cured by the use of De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve.
