From "The Scandal"
The llrtchclor Club's Official Paper
On April 17th, sixteen members of
the club wort) shanghaied n board the
commodious, well equipped, sea going
craft recently acquired by Uros. Tad
anil hunk, for the good nml sufficient
t canon that they were eagerly awaiting
the tlino when tho trusty tub would
haul in tho hook and get under way for
the Lower Columbia and aunt Creek
on the first outdoor party of the sen
son. Tho stores and nil equipment neces
sary for a stag party and fishing ex
pedition were aboard by four o'clock.
Most or tho lirotners who wero on
tlmo and ready to go busied them
selves for an hour and a half inspect
ing tho boat, taking a few snapshots.
and nicking tho roofing off Uro. lloncs'
boat house, wime awaiting the belated
arrival of Uros. Zip and anbby. How
ever, tho party was well under way by
llro. Hones and PeanutB stood the
first watch In tho galloy, and by the
titno tho St, Helens' Light wns sighted.
all hands had partaken liberally of
tho bounteous least set before them,
llro. Pad deserves especial mention, a
citation for bravery, and a lead medal
for tho splendid courngo ho so persis
tently displayed in tho presence of
hostile criticism that ho might bo the
Inst to succumb to starvation,
llro. Dodo handled tho wheel like n
vcterAn for a tlmo, but for soma un
known reason ho thought It advisable
to remove tho docks nt Knlama from
their present sites, and also to widen
tho channel at that particular place,
but, fortunately no damago was done,
for ho recovered from his revorlo in
tlmo to pilot tho bont back into tho
channel and tlicro was relieved of his
arduous duties at tho helm.
Tho party reached Clifton nt one
thirty A. M., whoro they tied up to the
old dock, which appeared familiar to
nomo of tho brothers, although It had
been partially destroyed by firo Blnco

ago on a similar though inoro spirited
fishing trip. An nrgumont Immediate

made, regarding tho advisability of
hiking seven or eight miles up bill
over nn old logging road to the creek
at that early hour. Bo mo of tho Uros,
Insisted on an early start, but tho
majority craved sleep mid rest while
waiting for daylight, and for tho bono
fit of those who wero so unfortunate
as not to bo along on thin trip, It
might bo well to say that, an usual,
omcono took tho Joy out of sleep nn
this stag party, consequently tho
brothers tnadu tho best of a bad situa
tion. In tho nienntliue Urn. I.unk demon

safety, Uros, Zip and Murph assisted

nud planks from tho old dock, and,
after successfully miiiimiverlng about
on two by fotirri nailed to pilings, they
finally reached n favnrabln location
for their shipbuilding operations. With
tho uld of a hammer and a number of
rusty nails they nmiwiged to get their
material fashioned Into a sorvlcoahln
