KillNC ACCOUNT OF TRIP OF
THE GOOD SHIP GALILEE
Captain Hayes of theRktn. Ania-
Unnow at the shipyard for re-
pairs, had a signal honor shown hi in
ind decided compliment to hi
knowledge of navigation on the high
u whin in 1905 he waa chosen to
pmimand the Rrig Galilee on a tour
of the North and South Pacific
Ocenn. I he expedition waa wirier
the auspices f the Carnegie Insli
tut at Washington, D. C, and waa
fur the purpose of getting the
wiatinn of the compass in the
different part of the world. The
Galih'. under command of Captain
Hayes and with a pirked crew, also
Kveral noted acitntiata aboard,
niWd from the Golden (late late in
the summer of lii0.r. The first itop
a i
u made at fanning isiana, near
the equator and about 3300 mile
from San Francisco. Observations
were taken there and the instru
ments corrected. From the Fanning
Wand the little vessel continued
her trip to Pago-Pago, the Sarin. un
ItliimU. thi'n down to the Fijiia. At
each place observations and com
parisoim were made and notea of
acientifu interval recorded. From
the Fijiia the party continued their
journey to Guam, which, by the
vay, ia the Island that Uncle Sam
kindly relieved Spain of during the
onpU-anantncM between those na
tion!. It waa Capt. Gliss aboard
the Cruiser Chailcston that steamed
to Guam, fired aoveral ahota at the
fortress, exacting aome ahow of
1 .resistance, but inatead of having his
shuts answered bv cannon from the
forts, Captain Glaaa waa surprised
to ace steaming toward h ia vessel a
steam launch on which waa the
Governor of the Island, accompanied
by hia staff. On arriving at the
Charleston, the Governor made pro
found apologies for not answering
the salute atating thnt the home
government (Spain) had not ent
him any powder and he could not
return the aalute. He was much
surprised to learn that war had been
declared against Spain and quickly
ivrrendered to Captain Glaaa, who
after leaving a detachment in
charge of the "powderless" fort
took the Governor and hia atafT aa
military prisoners and delivered
them at Manilla. At Guam, it
might he mentioned, are found the
deepest aoundinga in the world, a
I cable ship having made a sounding
of i l-4 miles, and even then not
having fOUnd the bottom of the
ocean on account of the sounding
line not being long enough. Guam
! supposed to have been a volcano
in ages past and great depth of
ater there ia supposed to be on
i this account. The Island ia now an
American cable station. From
Cuam the little vessel sailed to
Manila, thence to Yokahama and
. from the Japanese port to Sitka,
Alaska. Returning, Honolulu Bnd
other ports In the Hawalin Wands

t Weighed anchor for San Diego,
v!ifornia. After a few days there,
they again .Bailed, going to the
- South Sea Islands, New Zealand and
Australia and returning via Hono
lulu, The result of the long cruise
Waa very important and several
, changes were made in charts which
- no doubt have saved numerous ves
sels from going on the rocks of the

H. A. GALBRAITH, CITY MARSHAL
MAYOR ANO COUNCIL MAKES
TEMPORARY OFFICER PERMANENT
There were five applications and
petitions for the position of City
Marshal when the council met last
Monday evening. After nomin
ations had been made and votes
taken it was found that Mr. H. A.
Galbraith was the choice. Mayor
Mueller promptly appointed him
and the appointment was immedi
ately confirmed by the council.
Mr. Galbreath has had years of ex-
nerience as a police officer, having
served! oT about 8 ye"rs on the
Portland police force. He is
thoroughly competent and able te
handle the position and has Bhowed,
during the time he has held the
position temporarily that he will
.erform the duties in a most satis
factory manner.
.rim! nf vears ago a similar ex-
i -
pedition wbs started out on the At
lantic and the vessel has just now
r,f,.rnpd. CaDtain Hayes states
that he was gone from home for

Alaska codfishing which is quite an
ignominious ending for a vessel
which had played so important a
nnrt in mnkinir the paths of the
'(' v ---- "
great Pacific, and marking out the
danger spots so larger and more
important vessels could follow her
paths with more safety.

Never in the history of prize vot
ing contests ii. the state of Oregon
has any been launched that has met
with the hearty approval and sup
port of the public as the one now
being condected by the Mist. On
every street corner, in the hotel
lobbies, in the barber shops where
town topics are always discussed,
the Mist's voting contest is the real
subject of conversation. Competi
tion is commencing to develop in
each district and before next issue
there will be others in the race, and
anyone saying that this or that
candidate is sure to win are putting
themselves in a position to make an
awful blunder, for the race is
young yet, in fact, has just started,
and likely as not there will be some
winners who have not been entered
yet. Several new names have been
entered this week and a few have
withdrawn for personal reasons.
Subscriptions are coming in from
all parts of the county, with request
that votes be given this or that
candidate, which shows that each
one has numerous friends who are
willing to help.
NOMINAEE YOUR FAVORITE.
If the name of your favorite r oes

nate her at once on the nomination
blank printed on page six. There
is plenty of time to get into the
race as it has just started in earn

from now on it is going to be
serious, and the ones who get an
early start will have a little the
best of it.

and to show fairness on the part of
tee Mist to give all an equal chance

J. W. Fisher
WELL KNOWN EDUCATOR
PASSES AWAY IN PORTLAND
After an illness of over three
months, J. W. Fisher passed
away at his late residence, 1653
East Eithth street, Portland.
Ore., July 7th, at 10 p. m. He
was born in the state of Ohio,
October 27th, 1856. He leaves a
wife and one son, Wallace C.
Fisher, and one brother, H.
m. Fisher of Spokane, Wash., and
three sisters, Tillie M. Fisher,
Mrs. McElhany and Mrs. Anbuy of
Pittsburg, Penn.. to mourn his
loss. He was a man highly es
teemed by all who knew him.
He led a clean, conscientious life,
such as equaled by few. He
spent his entire life as an edu
cates and taught in the states of
Washington and Oregon for the
last thirteen years. The funeral
took place July 9th at 3 p. m.
from the Sellwood undertaking
parlors, Rev. Johnston officiating,
and interment was in Riverview
cemetery, Portland. Mr. Fisher
was well known in this county,
having been principal of the
Warren schools during 1911-12.
BAND IS ON THE ROCKS
CITIZENS MUST HELP OR
BAND WILL DISBAND
The St. Helens Band is on the
rocks of financial embarassment.
The practice last night In the base
ment of the Court House was the
last one until some arrangements
are made for supporting a band.
For nearly two years now the boys
who have been taking part in the
band have been paying the expenses
of music and an instructor from
Portland once each week until it
has become a burden to them and
they feel that unless the citizens of
the city can lend at least a helping
hand they will disband. It takes
some money to keep a band going
and if there are enough men and
boys who are ready and willing to
devote their time to it the funds
for the actual expenses should in
some way be raised by the people
of the town. So unless some enter
prising and public spirited citizens
come to the rescue the St. Helens
Brass Band will be a thing of the
past.
A Serious Injury j
SMALL SON OP H.O. HOWARD
HAS FOOT BADLY CUT
The 9-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. H. O. Howard of Yankton met
with a very serious and painful ac
cident last Tuesday which may
cause the loss of a foot. The little
fellow was following along behind
the mowing machine, being very
close to the sickle when the horses
slowed up and the boy stepped over
and in front of the sickle. Just
then the horses started up again
and the boy's foot was caught
severing the bones of the foot. Dr.
Ross was called and tied the lign
ments together, but it is yet un
certain whether or not the foot can
be saved.

Musical July 19th
MISS WATTS WILL ENTERTAIN
AT CITY HALL IN ST. HELENS
The musical to be given by Miss
Watts of Scappoose at the City
Hall on Saturday evening. July 19,
promises to be one of the enjoyable
events of the season. Miss Watts
will be assisted by Miss Maud Watts
of Scappoose, soprano, and Miss
Rosamund Walker, of Portland,
contralto. Miss Maud WatU is a
favorite singer of Scappoose, while
Miss Walker is one of the popular
singers of Reed College, Portland,
and a member of the Calvary Pres
byterian church choir. It was an
nounced in the Mist last week that
Miss Watts would also give a musi
cal at Scappoose on the 12th, but
this has been postponed until the
26th. at which time she will be as
sisted by the same singers as at the
St. Helens entertainment.
A Small Blaze
mil Residence Gets
SliiltlT Burned
The fire bell rang out loud and
clear last Monday between 12 and
1 o'clock and the fire fighting ap
paratus was hauled to the Flagg
residence on Columbia street in
record time, where sparks from the
chimney had caught in the moss on
the roof and burned several holes.
The fire was all on the outside, so it
took only a few minutes for the
firemen to extinguish the flames
and only slight damage was dona.
This fire demonstrated two things,
however, that the firemen are be
coming proficient ond that the
house owners should remove the
moss from the shingles.
