Easterly Weather Prevents
Ships Making Port;
Trro Ships Cleared Testerdy end.
Another "Will Finish Loading: Tali
Morning German Ship Ed-
znnnd Reacbea Son Diego.
The long spell of easterly -weather at
the mouth of the river remains unbroken,
and the In-bound fleet Is still out on the
Pacific waiting for a favoring breeze. All
this Is very pleasant for the outward
bound vessels, but If It continues a week
longer, Portland will And herself right In'
the middle of a big grain season without
a wheat ship in port. Two more ships
finished loading yesterday, and another
will finish this morning, leaving but three
ships In port to finish, and all of them
well on toward the finishing point. The
Alsterkamp, which arrived down at As
toria Sunday night, passed on out to sea
yesterday afternoon, leaving lower harbor
bare of ships. The vessels clearing yes
terday were the British ship Scottish
Hills, which was dispatched by the Port
land Grain Company, with 117,128 bushels
of wheat, valued at $67,950, and the French
bark Bessuet, which was loaded by the
Portland Flouring Mills Company, with
U2,C65 bushels of wheat. Both of the ves
sels go to QueenBtown or Falmouth for
orders, and will leave down the river this
The departure of the Alsterkamp yester
day leaves Tacoma and Seattle for the
first time this season with more wheat
ships In port than there are at Portland.
Kerr, Glfford & Co., of this city, have
Just cleared the Alsterdam from Tacoma
with the largest cargo that ever left Pu
get Sound on a sailing vessel. It con
sists of 200.656 bushels of wheat. Another
sailing vessel, the Dunstaffnage, now
loading for Balfour, Guthrie & Co. on
the Sound, will make a clpse second for
this cargo, with about 1S5.000 bushels.
No Cat "Will Be Made in "Wages of
Maatcn, Pilots and Engineers.
A large number of Portland steamboat
men have been employed on the Yukon
River steamers for the past three years,
and have made better records than the
pilots and masters from other sections.
Some of them have been expecting a re
duction In wages this Summer, but, ac
cording to advices from "Victoria, there
Is not much danger of a cut. McDon
ald Potts, manager of the Klondike Cor
poration, in discussing the matter In a
Victoria paper, says:
"The deck and fire department may suf
fer a little; still, good men always com
mand the best pay. It is very hard to get
good deckhands in that country, and if
the wages are reduced we are bound to
find it much more difficult to man our
steamers. You would have been greatly
amused at the efforts of some men try
ing to run lines. As regards the captains
and pilots, I do not think the wages will
be reduced at all. The increase in the
number of steamers operating on the
Dawson-White Horse run will alone cause
a much larger demand for good men.
"The pilots will certainly command as
large wages as ever In fact, I would not
be surprised to find that they will have
to "be paid more. A good engineer thor
oughly familiar with stern-wheelers is al
ways worth good wages. This Is one man
who is well worth his pay. A green hand
can easily lose the Increase In wages time
over time. Machine work at Dawson costs
fancy money, and every day's delay also
means 'hundreds of dollars in a country
where the season is so short. Taking ev
erything Into consideration, I do not fan
cy that there will be any material differ
ence in wages to that of former years.
Until the Government completes the im
provements on the river we must expect
to pay for good men."
lllic German Snip Mnklng Good Time
Ip the Const From Santa Rosalia.
SAN DIEGO, Cal., Feb. 1L, The tug
Luckenbach has reached here, towing the
Gorman ship Edmund, Captain Gordan.
The Edmund went ashore near Santa Ro
salia, Lower California, January 18, and
the Luckenbach was sent to pull her off.
After the Luckenbach has coaled she will
tow the Edmund to San Francisco.
(The Edmund was under charter to Bal
four, Guthrie & Co., of this city, to load
wheat for Europe. She had finished dis
charging at the Mexican port and was
outward-bound for this city when she was
blown on the beach. It was thought at
first that she would prove a total loss, but
good work by the tug which was sent to
her rescue saved her. As she was char
tered for January loading at this port at
a rate fully $5000 higher than she could
secure today, it Is hardly probable that
she will come north this season. If the
drydock was in operation at the present
time, there would be some inducement for
Tier owners to send her here, as she would
be in a much better position to seek busi
ness from Portland than from San Fran
cisco after she comes out of the dock.)
Owner Says Canned Salmon Picked
Up at Seaside Is Proof.
ASTORIA, Or.. Feb. 11. W. A. Ander
son, of Vancouver, B. C, was here yes
terday to make an Investigation about
the cases of salmon which were recently
washed upon the beach at Seaside. He
was the owner of the cargo of salmon of
the British ship Ardnamurchan, which
sailed from Fraser River for Liverpool on
November 26, and he had received In
formation that the salmon found here was
from her. His investigation proved con
clusively that this belief was true, and
there can now be no doubt but that the
vessel was lost, with all on board, as the
salmon found was stowed In the lower
hold of the vessel.
Derelict Proved to Be Tree.
The derelict that the captain of the
steamship Buckingham sighted oft the
mouth of the Columbia has been found,
and It proved be the trunk and roots of
an immense Cottonwood tree, that at a
distance resembled an overturned boat.
Indications of a Disaster.
ST. JOHNS. N. F.. Feb. 1L-The gov
ernment has received advices that wreck
age, apparently part of a steamer, has
drifted ashore near Bacalleu, a small isl
and northeast of the Avion peninsula.
Other wreckage is reported at different
points along the shore. It 16 believed that
some serious marine disaster has oc
curred, resulting In the loss of a ship and
her entire crew.
The Ilnla Reported Safe.
VICTORIA, B. C., Feb. lL The ship
Ilala, from London for Liverpool with a
general cargo, for which uneasiness has
been felt on account of the finding of a

Rough Weather on Atlantic.
QUBENSTOWN, Feb. 11. Incoming

rific weather on the Atlantic, and adverse
Marine Xotes.

The steamship Eva, which put Into San
Francisco leaking, discharged a portion
of her cargo at McNears dock at Port
Costa. She Is expected to complete re
pairs and get away tomorrow.
The Norwegian steamship Skarpsno,

Frye and Hanna Say Bill Must Fol
low Ship Subsidy.
WASHINGTON, Feb. XL Senators Frye
and Hanna, both members of the com
mittee, have for some time been saying
that It was probable that the river and
harbor bill will not be reported until the
ship subsidy bill is out of the way. This
"out of the way" may mean anything,
either that it is postponed indefinitely, or
that there is to be a vote taken on it.
A number of Southern Senators who have
large amounts In the river and harbor bill
have become quite anxious, and it Is said
that the opposition to the subsidy bill has
let up considerably on this account. Other
Senators, however, say they are not going
to be pounded into submission with the
river and harbor club, and that there will
be no let up to the opposition. Besides,
there are a great many Senators opposing
the subsidy bill who have got but very
little of the river and harbor "pork."
The omnibus claims bill today reported
to the Senate contains the following

A Mysterious Stranger Introduced
In the Proceedings Woman In the
Case Makes Her Appearance.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Feb. 1L An
eager throng, containing many women,
blocked the spacious corridors of the
Courthouse today, striving to get Into the
large courtroom to witness the proceed
ings in the trial of Frank H. Hamilton,
on the charge of having murdered Leon
ard Day.
The state's first 'witness for the day 'was
William G. Bennett, a St. LouIb traveling
man, who was in the billiard-room of the
West Hotel at the time of the tragedy.
He saw the party playing billiards, saw
the Hamilton party come in and heard
Day say to Hamilton: "You're the man
I've been looking for." He heard the talk.
In which a woman was mentioned, but did
not catch the drift of the conversation.
He saw the scuffle between the principals
and saw George, whom he knew, separate
Some five or 10 minutes afterward, he,
with others, was ordered out of the room
by Special Officer "Malley. He went to
the bar In the adjoining room, but was
called back by a traveling man named
Barbee. On returning, he saw Day on the
floor between the two tables. Barbee had
hold of his right hand and was support
ing him. Hamilton was not there. The
witness continued;
"I rubbed Day's other hand and then
returned to the bar for brandy. Falling
to get any, I returned to the side of the
dying man and found Hamilton and Can
field there. I told Hamilton to slap Day's
hands and take off his shoes and rub his
feet, as his extremities were getting cold.
Neither Hamilton nor Canfleld said any
thing. I said, 'He is dying. Hamilton
said, 'Is he?' and reached his hand over
Day's breast.
"We continued to rub his feet and apply
hot water. About 10 minutes afterward
the doctor came in, and five minutes later
Day died. I said, 'Let us offer a prayer.
I kneeled down, and so did Hamilton by
my side. The prayer was a silent one.
"An officer came and stood beside Ham
ilton and Canfleld. I did not hear Hamil
ton say anything to the officer. I had no
knife, nor had Barbee. Neither of us had
any trouble in the room with any one."
On cross-examination, Bennett said there
were 15 or 20 persons in the room at the
time. There was a row going on in an
other part of the room. He had known
Barbee about six weeks, and had met Day
Ray Evans was the next witness. He
is In he grain business. He described the
saloons he had visited with Hamilton and
his party, and then their going to the
West Hotel. On entering the billiard-room
he spoke to Day, whom he knew, and then
turned and Introduced Hamilton to Day.
The two shook hands, and then the wit
ness turned away without hearing the en
suing conversation. He described his al
tercation with Force, who, he understood,
had said something derogatory about him.
"I asked Force what he had against me,
and for reply he shoved me down into a
chair, saying: 'Sit down; I don't want to
have anything to do with you.' Gary
then broke in and said it was no time or
place for trouble with Force. He got me
out of the room, and when I started
back I was warned by the bellboy not to
go In, as there had been trouble."
On crossexamlnation, Mr. Penny went
into the question of what Witness Evans
had drunk during the evening, beginning
with those before he went to the theater.
The witness excitedly appealed to the
court to know whether this was relevant,'
but was told to answer. So he detailed a
succession of drinks at various places. In
all, he had drunk with Hamilton six or
seven times. He denied that he was
drunk and that there was loud talk or
profanity in the bllllard-room. He had a
cut on the back of his head when he went
away, but explained that it was caused
by the back of the chair into which Force
had pushed him. He had gone without
his hat because he could not find it. Wit
ness saw no difficulty between Day and
Frank M. Nye, for the defense, stated
to the court that the defense had learned
today with surprise that Barbee would
not be produced by the state. The de
fense considered him as an important wit
ness, and if he could not be produced,
asked that his evidence at the Coroner's
inquest be admitted. County Attorney
Boardman explained that he was not per
sonally responsible, as he haa come into
office since the commission of the crime.
His predecessor had made every effort to
secure Barbee's attendance, but the latter
was outside their jurisdiction since he was
out of the state. He objected to the ad
mission of evidence as being unjust, be
cause Barbee had not then been cross
examined. The last witness of the morning was
Charles L. Ferris, attendant in the bllllard-room.
He heard Day say to Ham
ilton: "You are the man I've been looking
for," and the rest of the conversation
that ensued, as told by other witnesses.
After the first scuffle he put away all the
cues and balls, covered the tables up and
took the beer glasses back to the oar.
When he returned he met Hamilton and
Canfleld coming out after the affray was
over. Afterwards he saw Hamilton sit
ting with a police officer in the barroom.
Ferris named as all the persons present In
the room, George, Force, Gary, Evans,
Canfleld, Hamilton. Bennett, Barbee, Ruet
and a traveling man he did not know,
who went out before Hamilton came In.
Ruet went out before Day did. He swore
positively that there were no others in
the room. On cross-examination, he said
George reached down and helped Hamil
ton and Day up after the first scuffle, but
witness did not think he parted them.
On the opening of the court in the aft
ernoon, the defense moved that the Coun
ty Attorney be required to produce A.
M. Barbee In court as a witness. Mr.
Penny pointed out that the laws provided
for furnishing the expense money required
in advance by the witness. The court
denied the motion, and an exception was
Stephen O'Malley, watchman at the
West Hotel, gave important evidence. He
put Young Evans out because he was
drunk, noisy and quarrelsome. He saw
Hamilton on' top of Day, but saw no
blows struck. Indeed, it is remarkable
that not a single witness thus far saw a
blow struck by Hamilton. O'Malley ar
rested Hamilton on the advice of Can
fleld, who was one of the prisoner's com
panions, but who said to him, "Hold that
man." Hamilton said not a word up to
the time O'Malley turned him over to
Policeman Rooney, to whom the state
charges that he made a confession. O'Mal
ley Identified a big wooden-handled knife,
with one broad, rusty blade, as the one
he picked up near Day's body. On cross
examination, the watchman mentioned for
the first time in the case "a mysterious
stranger." When he came back after put
ting Evans out, he saw a "slim, tall man,
with Iron gray mustache, weighing about
150 pounds," standing near a billiard ta
ble. This bit of evidence greatly pleased
the defense.
Dr. H. S. Nelson, formerly Coroner, de
scribed the cuts on the body, identified
the knife, and declared, after the de
fense's objection had been overruled, that
the blade of the knife could have caused
the cuts.
J. T. Gray, a boarder at the West Hotel,
gave some unexpected evidence. He ha"d
been attracted to the bllllard-room by
hearing that some one had been hurt, and
had gone in twice. Each time Day was
lying on the floor. The first time there
was no knife by his body, but the second
time there was. He swore positively that
there was no one near Day's body the
first time he went in. This contradicts
the testimony of several other of the
state's witnesses. There were other im
portant discrepancies between his story
and those told by the others.
The sensation of the day was the calling
of Caroline Slagle as a witness. She said
6he had known both Day and Hamilton
for about three months. She admitted
having visited Hamilton in Jail, and said
she was still on friendly terms with him.
Asked if she had had a certain conversa
tion with Hamilton before the tragedy,
she turned to the Judge and said: "I un
derstand that It Is privileged." The de
fense insisted that the witness be in
structed that she need not testify to any
thing that might tend to incriminate her
self; at least the state should put its
questions in writing and submit them to
the court before they were put to the wit
ness. After a consultation between the
court and the lawyers, the court ruled
that if the evidenlce tended to Incrimi
nate the witness she need not answer.
"That is all," said the County Attorney.
After recalling Force and George to clear
up some minor points, the court adjourned
for the day.
Paris Negro Fiend Taken From Jail
and Hanged by a Mob.
PARIS, Ky., Feb. 1L George Carter, a
negro who was In Jail here, charged with
having assaulted Mrs. W. E. Board about
three weeks ago, was lynched by a mob
early this morning. Shortly after 2 o'clock
about 30 determined men appeared at the
jail door and demanded admittance of Jail
er Klser. He refused and the door was
burst )pen. The jailer was overpowered
in an instant, the keys secured, and in less
than five minutes Carter was in the
hands of the mob. He refused to make
any statement.
It was only the work of a minute to
place a rope around his neck, and he was
then half dragged to the .entrance of the
Courthouse. The rope was then thrown
over the iron arch leading to the entrance,
and, while several pulled on the rope,
others lifted his body. He died by stran
gulation. The mob then quickly dis
persed. During the whole affair there wag
not a word spoken.
Scarcely anyone In the town, outside
of the immediate participants, knew that
the lynching was to occur. The electric
lights had previously been extinguished
and the town was In total darkness.
Before the men dispersed they pinned a
card on the body of the negro, bearing
this inscription:
"This will be the fate of all negroes who
assault white women."
The other occupants of the jail, who
are colored, were greatly frightened and
their cries and moanlngs could be heard
for several blocks. Half an hour after
the lynching occurred the streets were de
serted and the lifeless body of the negro
was swaying in the wind.
The crime with which Carter was
charged was a most atrocious one. Mrs.
Board, who is the wife of W. E. Board,
bookkeeper at the Deposit Bank, in this
city, was on her way home, about 6
o'clock In the evening with her litue
son, when she was assaulted by a negro.
Her cries and those of her son attracted
the attention of some men, but the as
sailant escaped. The negro was arrested
last week, on a charge of assault. Mrs.
Board identlfled him as her assailant,
and at the County Jail her little son also
Identlfled him.
Preferred Suicide to Lynching.
While a mob was besieging the jail here
and threatening to lynch George Burrlc,
he committed suicide by hanging himself
to a window-bar in his cell with an elec
tric light wire. Burric had been arrested
on a charge of having criminally assault
ed Kate Muflch, 12 years of age. He de
clared that he was innocent.
