FOUR FLOUR SHIPS
February Exports Make
ALMOND BRANCH AGAIN AFLOAT
Dip Steamer Is Palled Out of the Mud
and Meets Further Trouble Mov
ing Colombia River Lightship
Sknrpsno'n Lost Manifest.
The British steamship Buckingham,
which tvos released by the Government
several days ago, and has since been ly
ing Idle in port, cleared yesterday for the
Orient "by -way of Puget Sound, with 12,855
barrels of flour, valued at $36,000. While
scores of vessels have in the past come
around from Puget Sound to secure full
or part cargoes of wheat, flour, etc., this
Is the first case on record where a steam
er went from Portland with a part cargo
to finish out on the Sound. The reason
for this singular move is on account of
the accident to the steamship Goodwin,
-tvhich was obliged to put back after leav
ing the Orient, and her nonarrlval haa
caused an accumulation of overland
freight at Tacoma.
February was a short month but, despite
this fact, Portland succeeded in dispatch
ing four steamships with flour, three of
them going to the Orient, and one to
South America. The Increase in facili
ties, however, has not kept pace with the
demand for space on the steamers, for
during the month just drawing to a close
Portland dealers sent over 20,000 barrels
of flour to the Orient by way of Puget
Sound, and over 23,000 barrels were shipped
to San Francisco to go foreign or take the
place of flour which waa sent across the
Pacific. The advent of the new lino to
the Orient will enable Portland to secure
credit for much of this business which is
now credited to the ports from which it is
last shipped, and not to the port where it
ALMOND BRANCH FLOATED.
Hoodoo Still "With Her, Though, and.
Propeller Is Fouled "With a. Line.
The big British steamship Almond
Branch was released from her resting
place over on the east side of the river
yesterday morning. The hoodoo which is
lianging over the craft "still Is sitting,
still is flitting" around her decks, how
ever, and in backing otrf of her last pre
vious scrape, she backed into another
by picking up a steel cable with her pro
peller, Jamming it so tight that the big
screw refused to revolve.
The, Larveqt; Queen went up to help the
Gamecock drag the big steamer out of
the mud, and the presence of this craft
alone prevented another costly rampage
around the harbor. A big steel cable, used
in making the vessel fast, trailed over
the stern and was picked up by the pro
peller. It was wound up so tight that
it brought the engines to a dead stop, and
about the same time the Gamecock's
wheel got tangled up In another line. This
left the big steamer helpless, and she
started to drift down on a fleet of Kamm's
stern-wheelers, which were lying at Tay
lor street. The Almond Branch is a
veritable bull In a china shop when she
starts to mix matters with light river
steamers, and there was a great scurry
ing of the latter as soon as it was learned
that she was helpless. The Harvest
Queen held her, however, and she swung
into the dock without doing anything
worse than to carry away the flagstaff
from the -stern of the Athlon. Lines
were sent ashore in the meantime, and
the steamer was made fast at the foot of
Salmon and Main streets. It was ex
pected to free the big ship from her latest
trouble last evening, and if all goes well
she will resume her journey through the
bridges this morning. The bridge was
open to foot passengers yesterday, and
is apparently not so badly damaged as at
first reported. ,
COSTLY SAVING OP TIME.
Series of Accidents Befnll Skarpsno's
Manifest of Cargo.
Tho attempt of the steamship Skarpsno
to save a, .few hours' time in leaving the
Orient on her last inward trip, has re
sulted In an apparently endless amount of
trouble for her agents, and the consignees
of the Eastern freight which she brought,
In her haste to get away from. Yokohama
the steamer left without the copy -of her
manifest, which shows the names of the
consignees and the destinatio'n of several
thousand packages of freight. This man
ifest was sent forward on the steamship
Goodwin, en route for Puget Sound, but
when the steamer was disabled, and put
back to port for repairs, the manifest was
taken out of the mail and sent on the un
fortunate steamship City of Rio de Ja
neiro, which went down in San Francisco
harbor last Friday morning. Meanwhile
the freight is held tip Indefinitely, it being
impossible to do anything with It until
duplicate manifests can be received from
the other side.
MOVING THE LIGHTSHIP.
Stranded Vessel Haa Progressed One
Hundred Feet Inland.
Captain Boberts, who has the contract
for moving the lightship from Its resting
place on 3Corth Beach sands, to Baker's

ports very satisfactory progress. The
ports very satisfactory progress. The
vessel has been lifted out of the sand, and
moved inland over 100 feet, and at the rate
of progress now being made, the craft will
be in the waters of Baker's Bay several
days ahad of contract time. The plan
of moving the ship overland was discussed
at the tkne she was first wrecked, and
from the success the last contractors are
enjoying, it is apparent that the ship
would have been back on her station
months ago If this plan had been carried
out from the start. No difficulty is ex
perienced in lifting the ship high enough
to clear the slight- rise in ground between
the ocean and the bay, and the work is
progressing on much the same lines as a

Company, which towed the disabled Elm
Branch into Puget Sound a few months
ago, has just been awarded $6000 salvage
for passing a line to the disabled steamer

BIG TILLAMOOK CARGO.
Schooner C. JI. Wheeler Carries Over
Half a Million Feet of Lumber.
TILLAMOOK, Or., Feb. 22. The tug
Geo. R. Vosburg and the lumber schooner
C. H. Wheeler, belonging to the Nehalem
Transportation Company, the latter hav
ing on -board a, little over 500.000 feet of
spruce lumber, left for San Francisco this
afternoon. This Is the first cargo of lum
ber shipped from Tillamook City and the
largest vessel ever here. The scho'oner
Is 145 feet in length, and this Is her sec
ond trip from Tillamook, her first cargo
of lumber having been loaded at Nehalem
and she made a quick run to San Fran
cisco and return In tow of the tug. Mr.
J. A. Taft shipped the lumber, which was
manufactured at the Tillamook and Da
The recent improvements made by the
Government In Hoquarton Slough now
make navigation safe for vessels with the
above carrying capacity, and no difficulty
was experienced in towing the C. H.
Wheeler down the slough and to sea. On
the return trip the schooner will load
freight at San Francisco for the mer
chants in Tillamook City, as freight
charges are considerably lower from that
city by this line of boats than from Port
land and Astoria, consequently they are
taking advantage of them and ordering
their goods from San Francisco Instead of

A Montreal Falter Discovers Ship
wrecks Never Heard Of.
MONTREAL., Quebec. Feb. 25. Harry A,
Scott, chief steward of the steamer Kio
de Janicro, who was among the lost in
the disaster at the Golden Ga'te, was a
son of a farmer at Brandon, Manitoba.
His friends had often predicted such a
fate for him, but he laughed at them and
pointed to his record. During his 10 years'
service at sea he saw four ships wrecked
and each time escaped In safety.
"When 19 years old. In June, 1S90, he
shipped In the steward's department on
the old Islander, of the Canadian Pacific
line, trading between Victoria and Van
couver. In less than a year the Islander
was on the rocks off Plumpas Pass.
Scott soon found a place as watchman
on the steamship Queen, of the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company. For nearly
two years the ship had ordinary sea
luck. Then, one foggy night, the Queen
foundered on the rocks off Sitka. Alaska.
Bedroom steward of the steamship Mari
posa, of the Oceanic Company, was Scott's
next billet. The Mariposa was caught
In a cyclone between Sydney and Auck
land and had been given up for lost when
she limped into port a wreck. On another
trip, while Sarah Bernhardt and her com
pany were aboard, there was a mutiny
on the Mariposa, in which the steward's
department sided with the officers and
beat the rest of the crew after a hard
Scott's next berth was assistant steward
on the Pacific Mail steamship City of
New York, trading from San Francisco
to Panama. On the 13th trip the vessel
went ashore on the rocks off the Golden
Gate. Many lives were lost. Scott helped
save the passengers. The company recog
nized his heroism by appointing him
chief, steward of the. Rio de Janeiro. On
the first voyage on the ship the machin
ery was disabled, and she had to refit at
Hong Kong. She ran Into a typhoon on
the second trip and was blown 1C00 miles
off her course. Her third trip with him as
chief steward ended on the Golden Gate
rocks last Thursday.
The foregoing Is mostly "rot." The
Islander was never wrecked anywhere.
She struck a rock in Plumper's Pass in
1S95, but did not sustain serious Injuries.
The' steamship Queen never foundered on
the rocks off Sitka and the Mariposa
was never anywhere near being a wreck.

GOLD HILL MILL STARTED
AN EASTERN OREGON MINE FROM
"WHICH MUCH IS EXPECTED.
Development Has Been Prosecuted
for Past Four Years "With. Scarce
ly Any Returns.
BAKER CITY, Feb. 23. A 10-stamp mill
was started last week on the Gold Hill
property, 20 miles south of this place,
four miles from Durkee, on the O. R. &
N. line. Few mines have been developed
In that region. Except the old Connor
Creek mine,' on the Snake side of the
ridge, there Is no other property In that
vicinity that ranks as a producer, and it
has been o long since the Connor Creek
property enriched Its owners that It is
comparatively unknown. The starting of
the Gold Hill mill is taken to mean much.
Those best informed on the district are
of the opinion that it will be followed by
the Installment of machinery and develop
ment of other properties.
The Gold Hill has a unique record. For
four years Its owners have been steadily
prosecuting development work on the
property, acquiring adjacent claims and
laying plans for extensive operations.
During this long period there has been a
constant outlay, and but for a very brief
period, when a small quantity of rich ore
was worked, there has been no Income
f om the mine. The record reveals a con
fidence and patience seldom exhibited ex
cept where properties give absolute prom-'
ise of great1 returns, and this assurance
on the part of the owners is the natural
explanation of their course. If the ground
contained a mine, they were determined to
find It. To any one permitted to pass
through the elaborate system nf develop
ment work, now far advanced, no doubt
will arise that the Burnt River Gold Min
ing & Milling Company has a mine. A
most conservative prediction Is that the
GoM Hill will be among Eastern Oregon's
An excellent tunnel site has been chosen
for the base of development work done
under the present management, oft which
Colonel James A. Panting Is the guiding
genius. He holds the office of manager,
and has full charge of the work. The
main tunnel is driven Into a hill, afford
ing, beneath the apex, 1000 vertical feet.
This tunnel is now In a distance of 2150
feet, gixing a depth of between GOO and TOO
feet. From the main tunnel drifts and
crosscuts have been run on both sides,
opening up leads Intersected.
The first tunnel to the right, after enter
ing, was started off after a stringer that
showed fair values. After following this
for about 200 feet a big ledge, called the
Contact vein, was encountered, and the
drift was driven on its foot wall for a
distance of GOO feet. At this point, a cross
cut, on which work Is still progressing,
was commenced. Already the Crosscut Is
over 16 feet In length, and the hanging
wall of the big ledge Is not In sight. Along
the course1 of the drift on this ledge, and
for the distance traversed In the crosscut,
a good quality of low-grade ore was
found, which can be handled profitably In
a large mill operated on very economical
plans. The last four feet of the crosscut
has been In a rich pay streak of base ore
that now promises to be a mine within
Itself. The crosscut Is now In what ap
pears to be a horse, against which the
pay streak lies. As there is none of the
heavy talc found in other parts of the
mine on the walls, Colonel Panting Is ccn
fident that the formation encountered Is
simply a horse, and expect on the other
side cf it to enter again Into ore, perhaps
a continuation of the rich pay streak al
ready encountered. He states that no sur
face Indications of this mammoth ledge
were found, and it does not seem to lie
in the right direction for the main lead
or outcropping mother lode, for which the
main tunnel is being driven. Professor J.
J. Liddy, whq Is now engaged by the
company, pronounces the conditions of
the vein discovered exceedlnglj favorable
for extensive development soon. The gran
ite foot wall and formation above are re
garded as strong marks of permanent and
The next drift from the main tunnel,
after the Contact drift. Is on the Spring
Gulch vein, to the right. This is a small
vein, averaging less than three feet In
wJdth where opened up, but Is the richest
ore found in the Gold Hill mine,. The
ore milled from the property was taken
from the Spring Gulch. Immediately aft
er the Burnt River Gold Mining &. Milling
Company took charge it milled a quantity
of ore taken from this vein, realizing $16,.
000 from the patch. This ore averaged $27,
mill tests, and was taken from a point
near the surface. Deep sinking is expect
ed to Increase values, although as the wa
ter line Is close, trie free-milling qualities
will doubtless change to base. Over 400
feet of drift has been driven on this vein,
and a small amount of stoping done near
the main tunnel. It Is the purpose of
Colonel Panting, soon as the main tunnel
cuts the mother lode and a sufficient test
Is made In that direction, to sink on the
Spring Gulch, by means of a winze In the
main tunnel. By the time he Is down 250
feet, he believes this most promising body
of ore will be much wider and a marvel
A tunnel continued from the east drift
on the Spring Gulch crosscuts the forma
tion about 600 feet and encounters an Im
mense body of low-grade ore. One body s
known as the Jumbo vein, which runs
from 10 to 20 feet In width, and has as
sayed about $5 free milling. A drift has
been driven along this vein for a few
hundred feet to develop Its length. Ad
jacent to this Is a blanket of mineralized
rock, from 300 to 400 feet wide, which has
assayed about $3. Much of this body Is
a sort of quartzlte. Through it run string
ers or seams of quartz, some of which
contain good values. From the work done
In the tunnel cutting the body. It appears
the entire blanket could be worked In a
large mill adapted to treating low-grade
material. If such Is ever found to be the
I case, the ore could be quarried, rather
than mined, as there is a great mass of It.
The main tunnel cuts the Gone Goose
vein a short distance beyond the Spring
Gulch. A drift 350 feet In length has
been driven on this ledge, with the re
sult of opening up some good ore. An up
raise of 200 feet from the drift has been
made, and on either side enough stoping
done to test the general character of the
body. It Is the purpose to upraise here
to the surface for air, and to demonstrate
more fully the amount of ore between the
drift and surface, a distance of 675 feet.
Should ore continue as now Indicated, a
large quantity of it, giving good values,
will be available here for the mill. Most
of the Gone Goose ore Is free milling.
The face of the main tunnel Is nearly
700 feet below the surface. Between the
veins mentioned and where work now Is,
there are three or four veins of varying
size which are unexplored. One of these
is 2S feet "wide, and give assay values
about the same as the blanket of mineral
ized rock lying off to the east. "Within
the next 375 feet, it Is expected that the
mother lode will be cut, as enough sur
face work has been done on It to give a
fair idea of the dip. A peculiar incident
found in the main tunnel Is the presence
of a well-deflned stringer along the side,
which continues through the different
veins heretofore cut. This 16 believed lo
lead direct to the mother lode, where
great thlnes are expected to be found. On
the surface this big vein shows a width
of about 20 feet, and has assay values of
54. This is taken as a sufficient guarantee
of good showing with greater depth which
will be had when the big tunnel cuts IL ' value of the deposits are definitely ascer

including purchase figures, it Is estimated
that the company has expended about

been provided by means of a fire blast and

Equipment on the Gold Hill consists of a
10-stamp mill, complete, .with ore-crusher

required power for operating all machin

had at reasonable cost, but as tho price
of coal In wholesale lots Is low, the fuel
problem is not a material one. The mine
Is only four miles from Durkee, and less
than two miles from the O. R. & N.
track. A switch and spur Is to be put
In, which will bring railroad transporta
tion within three-fourths of a mile of the
mine. Water Is had in sufficient quanti
ties for the mill the year around. The
mill Is located In a small canyon less than
a half mile from the tunnel site. Ore Is
hauled In wagons, but as the pull Is all
down grade, great loads are possible each
The Burnt River Gold Mining & Milling
Company has very large holdings about
the mine. Including its numerous quartz
claims, it now owns a total of 1050 acres.
Two small farms Immediately below the
mill are a portion of the property. An
excellent water right for -power purposes
has recently been secured, and the man
agement expects soon to be able to In
stall an electric power plant capable of
furnishing not only Its own mine with
power, but numerous other properties.
In many respects, the Gold Hill is a
model Eastern Oregon mine. In size of
equipment, it Is yet small, but In arrange
ment of the forces at hand, Colonel Pant
ing has shown admirable skill. He ha.
the property fitted up with the comforts
of a big ranch. Colorado miners, accus
tomed to hunt the precious metal up about
the snow line, would stand In open

nel Panting has a comfortable home for
himself and wife, with a young orchard
near. A large hennery, containing enough
fowl of every description to supply the
camp with fowl and eggs. Is carefully and
scientifically attended to. A small herd
of finely bred cattle, particularly Jerseys,
yield a surplus of milk and butter, and
will soon furnish fresh beef for the mine.

It's the old pain consequent on condi
tions which result from study, confine
ment, and careless eating. It is only
one symptom of a derangement of the
stomach and organs of digestion and
nutrition. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery cures headaches by curing the
diseases which cause them.
"I -was troubled -with very frequent headaches,
often accompanied by severe vomiting," writes
MUs Mary Belle Suaiiaerton. of San Diego, Du
t1 Co.. Texas. " Bowels were irregular, and my
toruach and liver seemed continually out of
order. Often I could eat almost nothing, and
sometimes absolutely nothing, for twenty-four
houra at a time. I -was entirely unfit for work,
and my whole system seemed o run-down that
I feared a severe sick spell and was very much
discouraged. I was advised to try Dr. Pierce's
Ooldea Medical Discovery, and did so with such
satisfactory results that before finishing the
third bottle I felt perfectly able to undertake
the duties attending public school life, and con
tracted to do so. I most heartily advise those
suffering with indigestion, and its attendant
evils, to give this great medicine a fair trial."
