MAYBE A NEW TOWN
What the Sale of llwaco Road
FRANKFORT TOWNSITE RECALLED
Believed That the O. R. fc IT., If It
Bars, Will Build From Franlc-
fort to Ilvraco.
The reported negotiations on the part of
the O. R. & N. Co. for the purchase of
the property of the llwaco Railway &
Navigation Company have revived the dis
cussion of the scheme for founding a town
at Frankfort, which was much talked of
some years ago. The proposed site of
Frankfort is two miles above Knappton,
Is nearly opposite but a little above
Tongue Point, and Is about S3 miles from
Portland. From this place it was pro
posed to build a railroad to llwaco, a dis
tance of about 1G miles, over a good grade,
requiring only a short tunnel through ba
saltic rock and earth at the divide. It is
?iot possible to follow down the north
bank of the Columbia, for the reason
that the Government has a military re
serve and fortifications at Scarborough
Head, and right of way through such
property cannot be secured.
It is considered by many as quite cer
tain that the purchase of the property
of the llwaco Railway & Navigation Com
pany by the O. R. & N. Co. will be
consummated In the near future, and that
a railroad v. ill be built by the O. R. & N.
frpm Frankfort to llwaco. This will give
the O. R. & N. Co. control of the seaside
travel botween Portland and North Beach,
and will offset the opposition of the As
toria & -Columbia River Railway, which
has of late been waging a bitter war
nga'nst the O. R. &; X. Co.
Behind this is a prospect of the O. R.
& N. Co. building a railroad from Port
land to Frankfort It is known that L
Gerlinger, the Vancouver brewer, has
made a survey for a. railroad from Van
couver down the Washington side of the
Columbia, and probably a survey also
of the line from Frankfort to llwaco. It
Is surmised that this right of way has
been secured and this survey made in
the Interest of the O R. & N. Co., and
that It is on the cards. If at any time
the O R. & N. Co is forced to haul
wheat to the mouth of the river, that It
tlll build this road and a bridge aeros
the Columbia, and be able to do so over
Its own line.
The travel to the seaside this season
has been Immense, and at any reasonable
rate of fare would have yielded a hand
some income to all the transportation com
panies Thl; travel Is bound to Increase
from vear to year, and Is a matter worthy
of consideration by the transposition
companies Bv building a railroad from
Frankfort to llwaco. the O R, & N. Co
would land passengers anywhere along
North Beach from Seavlew to Nah
cntta in six to seven hours, and the
tedious delay caused by the stnge of water
In Baker's Bay would be entirely avoided.
This would be quite certain to give the
O. R & N. Co complete control of the
trael to North Beach, which is much
larger than that to Clatsop, and is likely
to remain so. Of course, the cheap rates
to Astoria, 23 cents for the 100 milesfhave
been partly responsible for the very great
Increase of travel to the coast, and If
old-tlmc rates were restored there would
be a considerable falling off in the travel,
but there is no more likelihood that rates
will ever be restored to the old figures,
than that thev will long remain at the
jirent ridiculously low figure.
The history of the llwaco Railway &
Navigation Company is linked with the
early '00s. when T. H. D. Gray started a
lino of sailboats, "plungers" as they were
called, between Astoria and llwaco, which
he afterwards superseded by a steamer,
the T S. Grant. When the Grant sank
off Fort Canb.y. he ran the tugboat Baru
na, anl -soon afterwards the General Can
by. The llwaco oystermen organised and
ran an opposition company to Gray, and
late In the '60s consolidated with him,
forming the llwaco Pacific Company.
Business was profitable and the company
prospered, running its line as far as Gray's
Plans wore projected for the 16-mlle
railway from llwaco to Nahcotta,. and
In 1SS6 the road was built as far as Tin
kers, and was later extended the full
distance. Piers were built, and the road
folly equipped with narrow-gauge coaches
apd engines. The new company, the llwa
co Railway &. Navigation Company, was
Incorporated for $125,000. but this capital
wrs not sufficient to build and equip the
road, and bonds were Issued and taken
up by the stockholders for an approxi-.
mate amount of 550.000. Since then the
development of the seaside travel and
the territory tapped has made the road
a valuable property.
President Loomls has held the office,
with the exception of one year, since the
organization of the company.

Sailors Arrested for Alleged Deser
tion Apply for" Habeas Corpus.
G. Jeffries, A Norbln. N. Johannesen
and Ole Thomson, sailors charged with
desertion from the British ship Cedar
bank, and .who on being arrested and ex
amined before United States Commis
sioner 33. "N. Deady were committed to
the County Jail, yesterday, through their
counsel, C. J. Schnabel. petitioned United
States Judge Bellinger for a writ of
habeas corpus, directing Sheriff Frasler
to produce the bodies of petitioners In
his court In order "that they may be re
stored to liberty. They allege that they
had not deserted from the Cedarbank, and
had no Intention of, deserting, and state
that the proceedings against them were
for the purpose of forfeiting the earnings
of petitioners due them from the Cedar
bank. Judge Bellinger granted the petition and
ordered a writ issued commanding Sher
iff Frazler to poduce the bodies of peli
.tloners in his court at 10 A M. Thursday,
August 23, and to certify "and return
therewith the times. and causes of their
imprisonment or restraint
It Is understood that the petitioners
were enticed to desert by sailor boarding-house
keepers, and were placed In
jail to be turned over to the captain pf
the Cedarbank when she is ready to sail.
A short time ago P. Grant "an.d his bar
keeper were arrested and taken before
United States Commissioner Deady on a
charge of obstructing a Deputy United
States Marshal in, the service of a war
rant on these same sailors In Grant's
sailor boarding-house. They waived ex
amination and were held to answer.
The Cedarbank is loaded and ready to
sail, and now the sailors have petitioned
for a writ of habeas corpus In hope of
getting their liberty.'
It Is said thatthe sailor boarding-house
keepers are endeavoring to extort from
ship captains a most unreasonable and
unlawful sum for furnishing them with
seamen some $160 and a month's advance
and that there Is a very hard feeling
against these boarding-house men on the
part of the captains, whose crews they
endeavor to entice to desert in order that
they may fill their places 'at these ex
MAY HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTAL
Snlclde Theory Almost Untenable in
Mrs. WoodTTorth's Case.
The mystery of the death of Mrs. Fre
mont Woodworth, who died last Thursday
as the result of a pistol bullet presuma
bly Intllcted by, herself, was not solved
by the Inquest "iield by the Coroner's
jury last evening. Oyer SO 'witnesses were
summoned, and noqe could offer any
plausible motive for suicide, and the pres
ence of one -snapped cartridge In the re
volver's chamber, and- the testimony of
fered by several neighbors that two shots
had been fired cast an air of mystery
about the whole affair.
Fifteen minutes before her death Mrs.
Woodworth, apparently happy and con
tented, had sent her young daughter to
play at a neighbor's, and an hour before
had been chatting pleasantly with her
husband about van Eastern trip. Five
minutes before her death" the child re
turned and found her mother darning
stockings and Beemlngly in her natural
framo of mind. A few minutes after
wards husband and daughter found- her
in a room with the door latched, dying
from a bullet wound, the report of which
aroused the whble neighborhood. In his
haste, supposing his daughter had been
playing with firearms. Mr. Woodworth
burst open the panel of the door and saw
his dying wife.
Many of the witnesses favored the the
ory of accidental death. Mrs. Woodworth
was known to be uneasy when large sums
of money were In the house, and her hus
band had Just given .her $90. When secret
ing this she may have handled the pistol
and accidentally discharged It The -domestic
relations of Mr. and Mrs. Wood
worth were happy, and she was always
cheerful and contented. Her friends are
at a loss to suggest a motive for suicide,
and fall back on the theory of an acci
In the verdict the Coroner's Jury thor
oughly canvassed the evidence, cast aside
the murder theory because that was un
supported by any testimony or circum
stances, and concluded that the death was
caused by a pistol bullet fired from her
own hands, whether with suicidal Intent
or as the result of An accident they were
unable to decide. Mrs. Woodworth was a
native of Portland, and 27 years old.

SUFFERING AT CAPE NOME
MORE APPARENT THAN(REA"L, SATS
A RETURNED PORTLANDER.
Many Pretend They Are Broke' to
Keep From Being: Robbed Great
Dancer From Fire.
"The financial distress at Cape Nome Is
more apparent than real," said Sam
Goodman, who returned Sunday from the
far north heach. True, there are many
people -dead broke, hut it is a very wild
guess to put the number at 10,000, or
even half that figure. A good many, men
who have money in bank pretend to pov
erty' for two reasons: First, they do. not
wis hto have their 'legs pulled by people
who are broke; and second, they do .not
wish to be robbed. So they go- around
with less than a dollar in their pockets.
That's the way I did, though I had $2000
"There is an organized gang of rob
bers and cut-throats who will give a lot
of trouble. Their favorite crime Is to rob
men sleeping in tents. By listening on
the outside, they can generally locate .a
sleeper's head. They then s",lt the wall
of the tent, hold a sponge saturated with
choloroform and attached to a pole over
the occupant's face, and soon have him at
their mercy. Under the pretext of s bor
rowing a match, they often enter tents
early In the evening and thus learn the
location of cots. United States Marshal
iVawter says he will run the gang out
one at a time and put them aboard the
revenue cutter Bear.
"Then there are a whole lot of men. Idle
and apparently broke, who are waiting
to jump claims. They are generally pro
visioned for a ..year, have good 'tents,
plenty of clothing and a little money.
They know of men who have taken up 50
to 200 claims, on whlch.it will be Im
possible to do the -assessment work re
quired by law. These claims have -been
'spotted,' and when the -first of January
comes around, the men who have been
waiting and watching will Jump the

creeks this year was the drought. It was

If there had been an abundance of water,
many men could have .done fairly well.
They must now wait till next year. Days
are growing short now. It was dark at

HOISTED" STARS AND STRIPES
Steamship Argyll Becomes Officially
an American "Vessel.
The steamship Argyll, lately purchased'
by Jerome & JHIU, of San Francisco, from
her Scottish owners, formally changed
her; flag yesterday afternoon, and Is how
an American craft. The ceremony was a
very tsimple one. The Argyll, which is
lying at Alaska wharf, hal been cleared
of her cargo and Chinese crew, who were
sent back to 'China, and had been 'thor
oughly cleaned and put "n order for the
transfer. Captain Thompson and his of
ficers who brought the A'rgyll here are
returning to England to take new posi
tions in the service of the former owners
of f the Argyll,v and the trunks, seachest
and other effects of Captain "W. S. Thomp
son .were plied on the deck addressed to
. Medhurst, Sunset, England.
' A crowd gathered on the wharf to see
tho change of flags made. A .number of
women were on board, as well as Frank
Wolsey, local agent of the North Pacific
Steamship Company; James Jerome, one
of '"the "new owners; Frederick Dodwell,
.Pacific. Coast manager for Dodwell ee
Co., the sellers of the ship; Collector of
Customs Patterson and Deputy Collector
Pike. The English flag was floating from
the staff on the poop of thevessel,
and a large American flag in a ball had
been hoisted to the head of the main
mast. Two, jseta of halliards had been
raised on the poop flagstaff, and when
all was. ready Mr. Dodwell pulled down
the British' flag, Mr. Jerome at the same
time hoisting- an American , one. ' The
whole ceremony did not occupy, a minute,
and when it. was completed the Argyll
was an American steamer. Mr. Jerome
.then ordered the flag at the maih truck
"broke out," and a alight pull on a line
released It, and the ' Stars and Stripes
floated 'out above all.
The . owner and his guests then ad
journed to the cabin, where preparations
for celebrating the event had been made,
and the toast of sucpess to the new ad
dition to the American merchant marine
and her new owners was drunk.
DUE TO A WEAK LINK.
Why Log: Raft Broke Discussion as
,to Danger From Rafts.
J. A. Fastabend, who has been building
log rafts at Stella,v"Wasli., waa In Port
land yesterday. He thought the cause
of the last raft breaking in two on the
ocean was a. weak, link. In the main chain
which runs lengthwise through the cen
ter. hla broke at a point about one
fourth of -the" raffs distance from the
forward end, so that about a quarter of
the raft was lost, the plies scattering
about the sea to be finally thrown upon,
the. California coast. He, therefore con
siders two chains necessary to provide
against a repetition of the accident..
He scouts the Idea of loose logs being
dapgerous .to shipping, as,the chances of
colllslon'are remote and even should a
vessel strike a spar with full force tire
timber would glide off witnout Injury.
"Of course, if we were to lose a whole
raft," he said, "there would .be danger
as long as It held together, but we have
not lost any which held together for any
length of, time."
The last raft, he said, was quite" a sea
.monster, belng 00 feet long, jOras long
as three of Portland'slilocks, not count
ing -the streets. Its heam was 54 feet
and its depth. 33 and It drew about 20
