Even. Terms on Freights.
Iong passages for Inbound ships for
this port continue to be tho rule, and
unless some of the vessels now overdue
at this port show up within a few days,
there will bo another big list for the
reinsurance speculators to plunge on.
Tho Andrada, Hathdown, Bertha and
Cape "Wrath are uninsurable and have
been dropped from the list, but leaving
these out of the question, and there Is
nearly a dozen ships due or very close
at hand, with a few of them from 10
days to throe weeks overdue. The worst
case of this new overdue fleet is the For
rest Hall, which Is 64 days out from
Shanghai. The fact that this ship is one
of the fastest sailers afloat gives more
cause for uneasiness than would be the
case If she was a slow vessel. The Gal
gate, which never mode any pretentions
toward speed, made the run from Shang
hai in 27 days last Fall. The Comllebank
Is out 40 days from Santa Rosalia, or two
weeks longer than the average passages
that have been made this season. The
IDimsdale is out 87 days from Nagasaki,
and the Khyber 34 days from Shanghai,
and both are fully due. The Thirlmere,
90 days from Antofogasta, should have
been hero a month ago. The Arthur Fit

Coroner's Inquest on the Victims of
the IUo Disaster.
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 27. The Cor
oner's inquest Into the deaths of those
drowned in the wreck of the Pacific Mall
steamer Rio de Janeiro, began today.
The principal witnesses testifying today
were Fred "W. Jordan, tho pilot; Gra
ham Coghlan, second mate; Charles J.
Holland, third mate, and R. P. Schwerin.
general manager for the Pacific Mall
Pilot Jordan told of the manner In which
he ran the RIo upon tho Forf Point reef.
Ho declared that his authority on board
was subordinate to that of Captain 'Will
lam Ward, the ship's master, and that
he advised lying outside till the weather
cleared. He defended the members of
the Chinese crew and said they worked
like machines. Incidentally giving an ex
pression of gratitude for his personal res
cue by a Chinaman.
"On -whom do you lay the blame for
th disaster?" he was asked.
"We were carried on to the point by
an unexpected swirl of the tide that could
not have been foreseen. I blame the
curronts and the improper signal at Fort
Point, which is a bell you can't hear any
distance at all.
"Pilots, as a general rule, consider it
a safe procedure to come in during the
fog. I never considered it altogether safe.
There Is danger of collision."
"Was there on this morning any reason
for venturing In during the fog? "Was
tho ship in danger?"
"Not at all. The Captain was anxious
to get in, as he was overdue. The Cap
tain did not use any argument except he
said he thought it would clear up. I
could see that he was anxious to get In,
and I was anxious to please him."
"When the pilot steps aboard a vessel,
who takes command? What laws gov
ern?" "There is nothing In the state law de
claring who Is supremo, but we pilots
always consider ourselves assistants to
the master. The master never loses com
mand of the ship. He can lay me off
duty In a minute, oven though the ship
were in the most perilous part of the
channel. That law Is the rule all over
"When I sent word to stop heaving, the
Captain himself said, 'Let her go." He
himself ordered up the anchor."
The great loss of life was, in Pilot
Jordan's opinion, due to the inability of
the passengers to realize the danger.
General Manager Schwerin testified:
"Many Captains are more competent to
steer In than are new pilots. But as
the law imposes the pilots upon us and
wo have to pay for their services, we
let them do a part of the work. However,
the Captain is always in command. Our
Captains have strict orders not to bring
ships In under conditions such as ex
isted when the Rio sunk. We do not
give written orders, as we cannot bind
the men that hard."
"How do you distribute the responsi
bility, between these two men?"
"I do not think that, had the pilot ad
vised the Captain of danger. Captain
Ward would have tried to come in."
"Is there any penalty for being over
due?" "No, sir; it was but little extra ex
pense to us only the meals to passen
gers. The orders to Captains are only
to bring the ships Into port."
"Why do you hire Chinese crews?"
"We have to do It or go out of busi
ness, owing to the competition of other
lines which employ Chinese."
Mr. Schwerin attributed the cause of
the wreck to the tides.
Second Officer Coghlan said:
"The pilot gave tho order to heave up.
When the men had been heaving for a
short time the weather thickened and the
pilot ordered the men to avast heaving.
Ho then left the bridge. He reappeared
in a few moments. He then gave the
first officer orders to heave up. The
Captain, who had been up and gone down
again, did not give the order to the flrst
officer. The pilot did that. The Captain
came up after the anchor was hove up.
It has been my experience in entering
the harbor that the pilot issue the or
ders, though I would not say that such
cr'enj arc absolute."
The Coroner's Jury returned their ver
: t ton'ght. The jury charges Captain
"V rI, who was drowned, and Pilot Jor
" with criminal negligence. The Pa
" Mail Steamship Company Is censured
f j- having a Chinese crew on board. Sec-
' ' 'Ticer Graham Coghlan is commend
. 'or his heroic conduct in saving lives.

WIJLAFA ON FIRE.
Old Portland Steamer Has Narrow
Escape From Destruction.
VANCOUVER, B. C., Feb. 27. The
steamer Willapa, which arrived today
from the north, was on fire during her trip
to this port. An attempt was made to
beach her, but, fortunately, as it turned
out, she was four miles from shore, and
before she could be beached the fire was
extinguished. Boon after the Willapa left
Kltkatla, a case of turpentine, standing
near the engine door became ignited.
There were two coal oil cons, and
they exploded, wrecking the dynamo
and scattering the burning turpentine In
all directions. The woodwork caught fire
in a dozen places. The time was about
midnight, and every light on the ship had
gone out. In the darkness the passengers
were aroused and taken on deck. The
fire eeemlng to resist the efforts at its
extinguishment, the Willapa was headed
for shore, that no risk to the passengers
might be taken. Meantime, however, the
efforts of the crew to put out the Are
were successful, and ship and cargo were
saved. The damage is estimated at $5000.
THE FAMOUS FLYER.
Has Carried & Million Passengers
. and Never Lost a Life.
TACOMA, Feb. 27. The Portland-built
steamer Flyer, which has been running on
the Sound between Tacoma and Seattle
for the past 10 years, tUthout the loss of
a single day by reason of an accident,
was laid off a couple of days last week
by breaking one of the blades of her
propeller by Btriklng a log while back
ing away from the dock at Seattle.
Last year the Flyer ran 313 days, and
covered over 70.000 miles, a greater mile
age than covered by any other steamer
During tho 10 years the boat has been
running, not a single life has been lost
on her, nor a passenger or member of
her crew injured, though in that time she
has carried over 1,000,000 passengers, a
record held by but few boats on this or
any other coast.
TJnknovrn Steamer Run Down.
LONDON, Feb. 28. Early yesterday
morning tho British steamer Chamois
collided near Dewarp lightship, east of
Yarmouth, with a steamer, name un
known. The unidentified steamer sank
and a boat which put off from her was
swamped. A few of her crew scrambled
on the Chamois. Four of the crew of
the Chamois, while searching in a small
boat for possible survivors, lost their ves
sel, but reached the lightship, from
which they were rescued. The Cha
mois has not yet been heard from, and
it Is feared that she may also have foun
dered, which would make a total of prob
ably something like 30 lives lost.
Three gangs of stevedores are at work
on the big steamship Wllhelmina, and an
effort will be made to finish her tonight.
She will carry the largest cargo of wheat
that ever left the Columbia River.
Thick weather still prevails off the
mouth of the river, and the only move
made in shipping was the departure of
the steamer Columbia for San Francisco.
The British bark Zinlta, the only vessel
that ever went ashore on the "terrible
north coast" and escaped uninjured, ar
rived at Puget Sound Monday after the
fastest passage" on record from Acapulco.
She made the run up in 26 days.

RECOVERED FROM MINE
BODIES OF VICTIMS OF "WYOMING
HORROR BROUGHT UP.
Appearances Indicated They Had
Died From Suffocation The Mine
Still B Brains'
XEMMERBR, Wyo., Feb. 27. An im
provised morgue at the mouth of the
Dlamondville mine this morning showed
eight corpses stretched side by side on a
rug on the platform. All night the relief
shifts had fought back gas at the entry,
and, like ghosts, had pursued .their ghast
ly work of securing the dead. All night
Superintendent Sneddon led his men up
to the jaws of death, nor did he stop un
til the first bodies were brought to the
surface. Then, from sheer exhaustion, he
was compelled to withdraw, only to re
turn after four hours and again bury him
self in the depths.
At 4 o'clock this morning word came
to the surface that four bodies had been
encountered on the seventh level, and a
few minutes later they were brought up.
The men had all fallen face downward
NEW POSTMASTER OF DALLAS.
CHESTER GILBERT COAD.
DALLAS, Or.. Feb. 27. Chester Gilbert Coad. the newly appointed Postmaster of Dal
las, is a young man of varied experience. He has held many positions o honor and trust in
Polk County, Eastern Oregon and the State of "Washington. He was born at Dallas, July
27, 1861. and was reared In town and on the farm near here. Mr. Coad Is a graduate of
the La Creole Academy, having passed his examination in 1S7S with high honors.
Mr. Coad was elected Clerk of Polk County in 18SS. and re-elected la 1800. after -which
he served the Dallas City Bank as cashier. Ho was business manager for the Dixie Flour
ing Mills Company for several years. He was appointed Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms of the
United States Senate. December, 1000, which place he held at the time of his appointment
as Postmaster of Dallas.
Mr. Coad is a. son of Samuel Coad, a pioneer, and grandson of General Cornelius Gilliam,
of pioneer fame.
and all with their heads In the wrong
direction, as one of the relief party ex
pressed It. Instead of retreating from the
advancing smoke, they had tried to rush
through the deadly gas, with the most
deplorable result. Of the eight bodies re
covered there was but one that showed
any appearance of having suffered In the
final agony. The exception was a man
who had literally burled himself in the
earth of the level In his effort to obtain
relief from the deadly gas. After being
removed to the surface the bodies were
stripped and washed and laid on the plat
form of the morgue for the purpose of
Identification, being covered with sheets.
There was no difficulty In Identification,
as the skin was not discolored, nor were
the features distorted in any manner. It
Is believed that seven of the men died
by the deadly gas without knowing It.
The names of the men whose bodies were
recovered were: Edward Ronl, P. Ronl.
Lorenzo Franzol. Joe Franzol, Batista
Bassolta, Florianl Aronlzlenl and J. T.
Simpson and Everett Simpson. The last
two were father and son, the boy but 17
years old. The wife and mother of these
was yesterday reported as having died
from grief. Following the disaster she
had been subjected to violent fits of hys
teria, after which a state of coma would
ensue. One of these lasted so long thnt
her death was actually believed to have
occurred. More than once today she
viewed the remains of her husband and
son, only to be led away each time shriek
ing with acute mental agony.
At 1 o'clock today a baggage car was
moved alongside the morgue. It had
come through from Salt Lake and con
tained a cargo of cofilns. Into these the
bodies were placed. Immediately after
the recovery of these bodies the workers
encountered much difficulty on account of
gas, which for a time stopped progress.
All day efforts have .been made to shut
off tho gas. Late this afternoon six more
bodies were found, and they will be
brought up later. General Manager White
arrived from the East this morning. He
at once descended the stope and will re
main on the ground until operations are
resumed. He gives It a3 his opinion that
thero will still be some fire to fight on the
sixth level after it Is opened.

BERLINER PATENT CASE.
Decision Against the American Bell
BOSTON, Feb. 27. Judge Brown, of the
United States Circuit Court, has decided
against the American Bell Telephone
Company In the famous Berliner patent
case. The suits were the Bell Company
against the National Telephone Manufac
turing Company, and same against the
Century Telephone Company, brought to
restrain respondents from selling, using
or making telephones or telephonic appa
ratus with the microphone attachment,
and to account to the Bell Company for
past use, manufacture and sales, upon
the ground that such was an infringement
of patent. The cases were argued before
Judge Brown a year and a half ago, and
as they related to the same patent the
microphone were put In together and
tried as If they were one case. The Ber
liner patent Is considered one of the most
important held by the Bell Company, and
does not expire until November 17, 190S.
The patent is the same one that has been
before the courts In the United States vs.
the Bell Telephone Company, where it
was held that the patent was not Invalid,
on account of delay at the Patent Office.
The whole case turns upon the validity of
this patent, the defense setting up, among
other things, the Invalidity of the patent,
Its lack of Invention, anticipation and
nonpatentabllity. It Is understood that
an appeal will be made from the decision,
and that it will be carried to the United
States Supreme Court on this appeal.
NO REPLY FROM ENGLAND.
Cannl Matter May Xot Come Up Until
After CongrenH Adjourns.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27. Lord Paunce
fote, the British Ambassador, called at
the State Department this afternoon,
thereby 'giving rise to the conjecture that
he was charged with the delivery of the
British answer to the Senate's action re
specting the Hay-Pauncefote treaty. It
turned out. however, that no answer has
been received and the visit had reference
to other and unimportant matters. The
Impression Is deepening to the point of
conviction among officials here that no ac
tion will be taken upon the treaty or
rathor upon the Senate amendments by
the British Government before Congress
adjourns. But It would not surprise them
t at a later date some overtures came,
perhaps In the shape of the looked-for
counter proposition. By using the old
treaty as a basis, some modification like
ly to meet with favor on both sides might
Choatc at the Foreign Office.
LONDON, Feb. 27. Ambassador Choatc
attended the usual Foreign Ofllce recep
tion today. No Information regarding
Great Britain's reply on the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty amendments was communi
cated to him.
Stock Muit Pay Tax, Too.
LANSING. Mich., Feb. 27. The Supreme
Court today handed down a decision In
the case of Thaddeus W. Bacon vs. the
State Board of Tax Commissioners, in
which the court held that Mr. Bacon, who
lives at St. Clair, Mich., and who Is the
owner of a number of shares of New
York Central & Hudson River Railroad
stock, was liable to a tax upon these
holdings. Mr. Bacon's attorneys contend
ed that Inasmuch as the property and
franchises of the railroad company were
assessed In New York, the taxing of Mr.
Bacon's holdings would be double taxa
tion. The court ruled that shares of stock
owned by residents In foreign corpora
tions may be taxed to the owners even
though the corporations are taxed In the
jurisdiction where their operations are

quently no Government work on the

we have no river? So far as I am per
sonally concerned. If I should serve on
the new commission, I should expect the
treatment Mr. Williams got. After two
years of faithful service he was uncere
moniously kicked out."
"He was kicked out." said the doughty
Senator Smith, "because he spent $10,000
of the people's money building an abnor
mal channel to his sawmill. You would
have been kicked out, too, If you had done
a thing of the kind in front of your flour
Senator Smith Insisted on drawing the
North Pacific mill channel into the con
troversy, and Mr. Wilcox said he saw no
necessity for discussing that question at
this time. Senator Smith smiled and
said "probably not," adding: "Almighty
God put plenty of water in the river be
fore the Port of Portland Commission
began making channels."
Mr. Wilcox closed by saying that he
had had plans prepared for the enlarge
ment of his flour mill from 2200 barrels
to 4000 barrels per day, but would not give
the order for the Improvement until he
knew what Iepth of water there would
be In the ri?cr.
Senator Smith had put on his overcoat
and hat to leave the meeting, when he
heard Mr. Ladd say that "Dr. Smith had
praised Mr. Wilcox's work." He sat on
tho edge of a chair near Wilcox until he
could have a chance to reply. He said
that he had not praised Mr. Wilcox's
work, but had condemned It. He consid
ered It a very grave error of judgment
for Mr. Wilcox, as a member of the com
mission, to permit Mr. Williams to cut
an abnormal channel, which had done
harm to the harbor.
"You need not bother your conscience
about me," said Mr. Wilcox. "I am not
going to serve on the commission."
"I don't care whether you do or not,"
replied Senator Smith. "I was not in
favor of putting you on the commission.
I simply yielded to other members of the
delegation, who thought you should be
appointed. i want It distinctly under

proved your policy on the Port of Port
Mr. Scott expressed himself In favor of
the approval of the new bill by Governor
Geer. He said It was not necessary to
build the drydock or new dredge at once.
These things, he said, could wait awhile.
Mr. Wilcox moved the appointment of
a committee of three to Investigate.
Messrs. Wilcox, Hughes and Ladd de
clined to serve because their minds were
made up. Chairman Corbett appointed
Messrs. Scott, McCraken and Sweek. Tho
report of this committee will determine
whether those who attended the meeting
will advise Governor Geer to veto tho

"I am the mother of four children, "
writes Mrs. Euphemia Falconer, of
Trent, Muskegon Co., Mich. "My fimt
two babies were still-born, and I suffered
every thing: but death. My friends all
thought I conld never recover. I was
reduced to 109 pounds. When I was
three months along for my third child I
was taken with hemorrhage or flooding
and came near having a miscarriage
from female weakness. For two months
I was under the care of our doctor, but
was getting weaker all the time until
one day I happened to come across one
of your little books and I read it through,
and the next day I sent and got three
bottles of 'Favorite Prescription' and
one bottle of 'Pellets.' I improved so
fast I continued to take your medicine
until baby was born, and he is healthy
aud all right. My health has been good
ever since. I now weigh 165 pounds."
