The British bark Comliebank cleared
yesterday for Queenstown or Falmouth
for orders with 129,037 bushels of -wheat,
valued a $76,000. The Comliebank was dis
patched by Girvln & Eyre. Her cargo was
taken from "Victoria dock, and Kerr, Gif

record for fast loading. The ship received
her entire cargo in 17& hours. She com
menced loading at 9 o'clock Monday morn

hands quit work at 5 o'clock. Tuesday
the men worked nine hours and loaded
29,554 sacks, or 1803 long tons, an average

Hercules and Mascot Meet In a Fort
"With Disastrous Results.
The Vancouver Transportation Com
pany's steamer Mascot again demonstrat
ed the peculiar fitness of her name by
limping Into port yesterday morning with
the entire starboard side of her house
ripped out as far back as the oilroom.
It has been over a year since the Mascot
was sunk the last time, and she has not
been in collision for nearly two years.
This was too good a record for a steamer
with such a charmed name, and yester
day morning as she was on her way up
the river in a dense fog the steamer Her
cules, bound down the river, crashed Into
ther a short distance above Fales' Land
ing, on the Columbia, and made her lower
house look like the traditional three
dimes. The Hercules was in charge of
Captain Andrew Johnson, her regular mas
ter. Captain Thomas Crang taking a va
cation yesterday morning, in order to miss
The Mascot was in charge of Captain
"Davis, both of the masters being experi
enced men. of good reputation on the
river. Strange to say, there is a differ
ence of opinion between the two men as
to which was to blame. This feature of
steamboat collisions has been noticed be
fore, and, as usual, the inspectors will be
called on to place the blame where It be
longs. According to the testimony of
Captain Davis, which Is corroborated by
a number of passengers, the Mascot was
coming up the river and following the
"bank, expecting to land at Knapp's Land
ing. Just before reaching that point the
Hercules, which had left Portland at 7
o'clock, loomed up in the fog, heading
straight for the Mascot. Captain Davis
gave two whistles, but the headway of
the Hercules was so great that she could
not change her course in response to the
signal, and Instead gave three whistles
as a danger signal.
Captain Davis had meanwhile stopped
his steamer, but seeing that a collision
was inevitable, and his boat was in dan
ger of being cut In two, started the en
gines and got headway enough to throw
the stern of his boat In shore, thus re
ceiving a glancing blow from the Her
cules Instead of a fair-on bump, which
would have sunk him right there. The
Hercules caught the guard of the Mascot
just at the forward gangway, on the star
board side, and carried away guard,
stanchions and house for a distance of
nearly 50 feet. Some of the freight was
knocked overboard, but none of the pas
sengers or crew was hurt The Her
cules was comparatively uninjured, a
broken jackstaff being about all of the
damage sustained. The damage to the
Mascot will amount to several hundred
dollars. The Undine went out on the
Lewis River run yesterday afternoon In
place of the Mascot, and the Lurline will
take care of the Vancouver traffic until
repairs are completed on the Mascot
Captain Johnson, of the Hercules, was
interviewed at Astoria last evening, and
"Just after passing Knapp's light, on the
trip down the river this morning, I beard
log signals from a steamer coming up
the river, off our port bow. I immediate
ly stopped the Hercules to locate the com
ing steamer, which proved to be the Mas
cot. When I saw her through the fog she
was off our port bow. Her captain gave
two blasts of the whistle, but as I could
not comply with that signal I gave him
the danger signal and backed the steamer
Hercules at once. But as the Mascot
came across the Hercules' bow at a con
siderable speed, I was unable to clear her.
The Mascot received some damage to her
house, but the Hercules was uninjured
and no one was hurt."
DUTCH STEAMER'S TRIALS.
Disabled Vessel "Was Repeatedly Re
QUEENSTOWN, March 13. The Dutch
steamer La Flandre, Captain Cortglese,
was towed into Queenstown Mon
day by the British steamer West Point,
which picked her up while on her way
from London to Philadelphia. The La
Flandre became unmanageable March 9,
and her commander bitterly comments on
the callousness of the captain of a large
French steamer which passed the dis
abled vessel, and the failure of others to
assist the La Flandre. The first ship
sighted was the French vessel referred to,
which failed to respond In any way to
the La Flandre's urgent signals of dis
tress. On the following day the Red Star
Line steamer Frlesland, Captain Nickels,
which arrived at Antwerp March 10 from
New York, offered to take off the crew of
the La Flandre If they were prepared to
abandon their ship, but when this was de
clined the Frlesland proceeded. Then a
Wilson steamer bound for Hull passed the
La Flandre, and the latter, the captain
says, refused to lay by and await better
The next steamer communicated with
was the Norwegian steamer Llv, Captain
Rasmussen from Barry March 2 for
Hampton Roads. She attached a hawser
to the La Flandre and began to tow her
in the direction of St. Michael, Azores,
but the Hawser Immediately parted and
the Liv proceeded on her voyago The
worn-out crew of the La Flandre were al
most in despair when the West Point was
sighted and towed the disabled steamer to
SPRUNG A LEAK.
Schooner Louis, Lumber Laden,
Strikes a Lopr and Is Injured.
ASTORIA, Or., March 13. The five
masted schooner Luis, which crossed out
about 11 o'clock this morning, with a
cargo of lumber from Knappton for San
Francisco, was towed Into port this even
ing in a leaking condition, and about six
feet of water in her hold. When the
schooner crossed out the bar was some
what choppy, but not rough, and Pilot
Staples, who was on the tug, says the
Louis did not sag two feet in crossing.
"When outside, however, the captain re
ported that the scKboner was lea'king,
and soundings showed that there was
six feet of water in the hold. He said
the vessel struck bottom both fore and
aft, near the outer buoy, but when told
that there was five fathoms of water at
that point, he said she must have struck
a log. He admitted that the schooner
was- leaking a little when she loft Knapp
ton, but claims It did not amount to any
thing. The Louis, on being towed Into
port, was anchored on the sands oppo
site the city, and a diver has been en
gaged to ascertain the extent of her In
juries. From her appearance, it is feared
hor back Is broken. The schooner lias
steam pumps on board, and by working
them constantly, the water In her hold
Is kept at about the same stage. The
life-saving crews from Canby and Point
Adams quickly responded to the signals
from the schooner and stood by her until
she dropped anchor in the harbor.

SAN FRANCISCO, March 11 The

ing the effects of wind and wave. Last
Saturday morning while lying to In a
southwest gale, 15 miles to the south
west of Cape Blanco, the rudder
head broke off, and for the follow
ing 36 hours the steamer was
helpless In a rough sea. A portion of
the after house gave way on the star
board side, and the after deck lashing
broke, allowing over 10,000 feet of lumber
to "wash overboard. By hard work the
steamer was put in trim by the follow
ing day and proceeded to this port.

General Harrison's wealth is variously
estimated, public opinion rating it as high
as $500,000. Those who are best informed
about the ex-President's affairs, however,
say he was worth about $250,000 or $000,000.
At the time he was elected President he
was. reputed to have accumulated a for
tune of $125,000 from his law practice, and
this has been doubled at least since that
time. Of late his practice, owing to his
great reputation as a constitutional law
yer, was very lucrative. His fee in the
Venezuelan boundary dispute was $100,000.

Ham Henry Harrison ninth President of
the United Stotes, who was the third and
youngest son of Benjamin Harrison, one
of the signers of the Declaration of Inde
pendence, from Virginia. John Scott Har
rison was twice married, his second wife
being Elizabeth, daughter of Archibald
Irwin, of Mercersburg, Pa. Benjamin was
the second son of this marriage- His
parents were resolutely determined upon
the education of their children, and early
In childhood Benjamin was placed under
private instruction at home. In 1S47 he
and his elder brother were sent to a
school on what was known as College
Hill, a few miles from Cincinnati. After
remaining there two years he entered the
junior class of Miami University. In Ox
ford, O., where he was graduated In 1S52.
He was married October 20, 1S53. to Caro
line Scott, daughter of Dr. John W.
Scott, who was then president of Oxford
Female Seminary, from which Mrs. Har
rison was graduated In 1852.
After studying law under Storer &
Gwjmne In Cincinnati he was admitted to
the bar In ISA and began the practice of
his profession at Indianapolis, which had
since been his home. John H. Rea, clerk
of the United States District Court, gave
him deskroom, and Isoon afterward he
was appointed crier of the Federal Court
at $2 SO per day. This was the first money
he ever earned. Jonathan W. Gordon,
one of the leaders of the Indianapolis bar,
called young Harrison to his assistance
in the prosecution of a criminal, tried for
burglary, and Intrusted to him the plea
for the state. He had taken ample notes
of the evidence, but the case was closed
at night, and the Courthouse being dimly
lighted by tallow candles, he-was unable
to read them when he arose to address
the court and jury. Laying them aside,
he depended entirely upon his memory,
and he found It perfect. Best of all he
discovered he could think and speak on
his feet, fiashllke and coherently. He
made an eloquent plea, produced a
marked Impression, and won the case.
Since then he had always been an im
promptu speaker. Forming a partner
ship with William Wallace In the prac
tice of law, he prepared deeds, gave ad
vice, made collections, tried cases before
Justices of the Peace, appeared in the
Probate Courts, and sometimes in the
Circuit Court. In 1SG0 Mr. Wallace be
came clerk of the County of Marion,
and the firm was changed to Harrison
FIshback. which was terminated by
the entry of the senior partner Into the
Army In 1S62. In 1SG0 Mr. Harrison was
chosen reporter of the Supreme Court
of Illinois on the Republican ticket by
a majority of MSS. This was his first ac
tive appearance in the political field.
When the Civil War began he assisted
In raising the Seventieth Indiana Regi
ment of Volunteers, and became Its Sec
ond Lieutenant although Governor Mor
ton tendered him its command he him
self appointing a deputy reporter for the
Supreme Court. In the ensuing Autumn
the Democratic State Convention, consid
ering his position as civil officer vacated
by this military appointment, nominated
and elected a successor, although Harri
son's term of office had not expired. Their
view was sustained by the State Supreme
Court, but In 1SG4, while Colonel Harrison
was in the Army, the people of Indiana
gave their judgment by re-electing him
to the position of Supreme Court Reporter
by an overwhelming majority. When he
returned to Indianapolis after the war, he
became a member of the law firm of Por
ter. Harrison & FIshback. and after sub
sequent changes, of that of Harrison, Mil
ler & Elam. His biographer holds that
before his election to the Presidency he
had worked his way to the head of the
His MIHtnry Record.
His military record can be suc
cinctly stated. When General D. C.
Buell was ordered. In 1S62. to march the
Army of the Ohio to Chattanooga, he fol
lowed directions given him to go by the
line of the Memphis & Charleston Rail
road form Corinth, Miss, to Decatur, Ala.,
repairing it as he went. It resulted that
Bragg, the Confederate General, was able
to put him upon the defensive, and. In
deed, to begin a race northward on par
allel lines. In the course of which Buell
was severely taxed to save, first. Nash
ville, Tenn, and then Louisville, Ky. The
news spread throughout Ohio and Indiana
that the Confederates were In force, with
the advantage of an Interior line for their
operations. It was In this season of ap-
prehenslon that the Seventieth Indiana
went to the field, with Harrison as its
Colonel, their objective point being Bowl
ing Green, Ky. It was brigaded with the
Seventy-ninth Ohio, and the One Hundred
and Second, One Hundred and Fifth and
One Hundred and Twenty-ninth Illlols
regiments, under Brigadier-General Ward,
of Kentucky, and this organization was
kept unchanged until the close of the
war. Colonel Harrison had the right of
the brigade, and his command was oc
cupied at first In guarding railroads and
hunting guerrillas, his energies being
largely spent in drilling his men. He was
extremely systematic and painstaking,
his theory being that every day In camp
should be a preparation for that other
day always to be kept In a soldier's mind
the day of battle. By this method he
made his" regiment what It afterward be
came. When General Rosecrans set out
for Chattanooga, General Ward was sent
on duty to Nashville, and on January 2,
1SG4, his command was called to the front.

mand of the brigade. Later this brigade

man, upon wnlch his regiment,
bookkeeier for the Duniway Lumber Com-
with associate forces, entered, was
directed, as Is now known, against the
Confederate Army of General Joseph E.
Johnston, and not against any particular
place. In the Federal advance one of the
severest actions was fought at Resaca,
Ga., May 14-15, JSG4. Here Colonel Har
rison was among the first. If not the first,
to cross the parapet in storming the
Southern redoubt. From that place south
ward every day brought a collision of
some sort with the enemy at every halt
a breastwork was built. At New Hope
Church, Ala., and at Golgotha Church,
Kennesaw Mountain and Peach Tree
Creek, Gn., the regiment and Its leader
saw sharp fighting, that at Resaca being.
In Colonel Harrison's opinion, the heaviest
he was ever subjected to before or at any
time afterwards. When the Peach Tree
Creek fight was over General Hooker
wrote as follows to Washington, D. C:
"My attention was first attracted to this
young olllcer by the superior excellence
of his brigade. In discipline and Instruc
tion, the result of his labor, skill and de
votion. With more forefcight than I have
witnessed in any officer of his experience
he seemed to act upon the principle that
success depended upon the thorough prep
aration in discipline and esprit of his com
mand for conflict, more than on any Influ
ence that tculd be exerted on the field
itself, and when collision came his com
mand vindicated his wisdom as much as
his valor. In all of the achievements of
the Twentieth Cprps In that campaign.
Colonel Harrison bare a conspicuous
part" When Atlanta. Ga., was taken by
Sherman (September 2, 1SG4), Colonel Har
rison received his first furlough to visit
home, being assigned to special duty In
a systematic canvass of the state to re
cruit for the forces In the fi3ld. Return
ing to Chattanooga and then to Nashville,
Tenn., he was placed In command of a
provisional brigade held In reserve at that
battle (December 15, 16. 1S64), and was but
little engaged. When the fight was over
he was sent In pursuit of the beaten Con
federate, Hood. Recalled from the pur
suit, Harrison was next ordered to report
to General Sherman at Savannah, Ga.
While passing through New York he suc
cumbed to an attack' of scarlet fever, but
In a few weeks was able to proceed on
his way. Joining Sherman at Goldsboro,
N. C. he resumed command of his old
brigade, and at the close of the war went
to Washington, D. C, to take part In the

Returning to Indianapolis, he resumed
his office as Reporter of the Su
preme Court, but In 1EG7 declined a re
nomination, and recommenced his law
practice. In 1S6S and 1S72 he took part in
the Presidential campaign In support of
General Grant, traveling over Indiana and
speaking to large audiences. In 1S76 he
at first declined-a nomination for Govern
or on the Republican ticket, consenting
to run only after the regular nominee had
withdrawn. He received almost 2000 more
votes than his associates on the ticket,
but was nevertheless beaten. In 1SS0, as
chairman of the Indiana delegation In the
Republican National Convention, he cast
nearly the entire vote of the state for
James A. Garfield for President. Presi
dent Garfield offered him a place In his
Cabinet, but he declined It. preferring
the United States Senatorshlp from Indi
ana, to which ho had just been chosen,
and which he held from 1SS1 to 1SS7. In
the Senate he advocated the tariff vlew3
of his party, opposed President Cleveland's
vetoes of pension bills, urged the recon
struction and upbuilding of the Navy, and
labored and voted for civil service re
form. He was delegate-at-large to the Re
publican National Convention In 1SS4; June
13, 1SSS. at Chicago, 111., and on the eighth
and final ballot he had received 544 votes
to 118 for John Sherman, 100 for Russell
A. Alger, 59 for W. Q. Gresham, 5 for J.
G. Blaine and 4 for William McKlnley, as
the candidate of that party for President.
The nomination was made unanimous, and
In November he was elected, receiving 233
votes In the Electoral College to 1GS for
Grover Cleveland. He was duly Inaugu
rated March 4. 1SS9.
As Chief Executive.
When President Harrison began
his Administration he was confront-
ed by the controversy between
England and the United States in refer
ence to the killing of seals In the Behrlng
Sea. Our Government claimed that under
the purchase from Russia it had not only
the exclusive right to take the seals upon
the Islands of Alaska, but to exclude our
own citizens and people of other nationali
ties from killing them on the open waters
within 100 miles of the Islands. This claim
was based on the necessity of such ex
clusion for the protection of seal life.
When the sealing season of 1SS9 opened,
directions were given the Government
ships to defend the claim. At the same
time a correspondence was being carried
on through the State Department with
a view to settling the controversy by
diplomacy, the result being an agreement
for arbitration of this vexed question be
tween the two nations. Early in the Ad
ministration steps were taken to bring to.
gether lr. Washington representatives
from all the South American and Central
American countries in the Pan-American
Congress which was held In Washington
In the Winter of 1SS9-90, representatives
from all those countries being present.
It Is believed that Us deliberations result
ed In a better understanding and a more
liberal feeling among the nations repre
sented, many plans for reciprocity in
trade with these nations being originated
by this conference, some of which were
formulated and made practical In the tar
iff act passed by the 51st Congress, known
as the McKlnley law. JJurlng the first
two years of the Administration six new
states formed constitutions and were ad
mitted Into the Union. They were North
Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, Mon
tana. Idaho and Wyoming. A number of
commissioners were appointed under the
direction of the Secretary of the Interior
to form treaties with various Indian
tribes for the purchase of lands with a
view to open the same to settlement.
It resulted In the extinguishment of In
dian titles to vast tracts of land and the
establishment of the new Territory of
Oklahoma, with all the forms and ad
vantages of civil government. An Indian
outbreak during th Wlpter of 1S90-91 In
the Northwest was managed by the Fed
eral authorities In such a manner as to
be soon quelled, with less expense and
cruelty than usually characterize such
In the early Spring of 1S91 troubles
between the city government and the peo
ple of New Orleans" on one side and the
Italian residents of that city on the other
resulted In a mob which caused the death
of a number of Italians In prison under
charges of murder. This Incident was
promptly made the occasion for the de
mand upon the United States by the Ital
ian Government for redress and Indem
nity. The demand was peremptory in
tone, and In manner almost offensive.
It was met courteously but firmly with
the statement that, while this Govern
ment earnestly disapproved and denounced
the action of the mob. It could not recog
nize a National responsibility for its re
sults unless It could be shown that Its
action was the result of connivance on
the part of the public authorities of New
Orleans, and that the United States did
not guarantee or become Insurers of the
lives of alien residents any more than of
its own citizens; that the courts were open
and alien residents must resort to them
the same as American citizens, unless the
public authorities were shown to have
connived at the violating of the law. The
incident ended for the time being in the

President Harrison's Administration
exhibited from the beginning a desire
to strengthen the United States Navy by
pushing forwar.l the construction of ar

treaties were made, not only with
the countries of South and Central Amer
ica, but with the leading governments, of
Eurore, resulting In a much freer admis
sion than heretofore of American prod

tionsAustria. Germany. France and
Spain. The lnws and regulations relating
to civil service were widened and extend
ed and faithfully enforced, not only ac
cording to their letter, but In accord
ance with their spirit, as Is shown by the
order which allowed only skilled mechan
ics to work on the new war vessels. All
the departments of the Government were
conducted with energy and upon business
principles, so that it came to be very
generally spoken of as a business Admin
istration. In the Spring of 1S91 President
Harrison made an extended trip through
thf South, the Southwest and to the Pa
cific Coast. The 149 different speeches
he delivered at towns where he stopped
were remarkable for their fertility of
thought, felicity of expression and adapt
ability to the place and the occasion.
They called forth the most favorable com
ment from the press and the people of
tho entire country.

from the Presidency he had devoted him
self almost entirely to his law practice,
his only public service being his appear

the South American Republic's dispute
with England over her boundary line.

McKlnley one of the American members
of the International arbitration tribunal.

How many years of her life does a
woman spend over the hot cook stove
getting those three meals a day ? Back
aching, head throbbing, nerves twitch
ing, it's all the same, there are three
meals a day to be prepared. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription cannot lighten
woman's labor, but it can and does in
crease her strength. It cures those dis
eases of tli womanly organs which un
dermine woman's vitality.
nI cannot praise Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription too highly as a tonic for tired, worn
oat women who are afflicted with female weak
ness," writes Mrs. Ira W. Holmes, of Cedar
Rapids, Iowa. "It has helped me very much
and a skillful physician once said to me in
answer to my question as to Its efficacy, I know
of cases where it has really worked wonders.' "
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets do not
re-act upon the system. They are a good
thing to keep in the house. One Pellet '
is a laxative, two a cathartic dose. The
medicine for every woman.
