THYRATAKEN FOR LUMBER
CHARTERED BY "PACIFIC EXPORT
T J )LuaIBER COMPANY.
?Tvro Fast Ships Coming From Nevr-
castle With, Coal Scarcity o
Sailors on Paget Sound.
The Norwegian steamship Thyra, which
has been lying Idle in this port since she
was .released, by the Government from the
transport service, was chartered yester
day by her agent, P. a. du Flon, to the
Pacific Export Lumber Company, to load
lumber for the Orient. This makes a
total of six big steamships under char
ter to that company, and at least half
of the fleet will receive their cargoes at
Portland within the next 30 days. Since
her release from the Government serv
ice the Thyra has "been thoroughly over
hauled, cleaned and repainted, and is now
in first-class shape. She will move over
to the west side of the river at once and
commence loading. She has never taken
e cargo of lumber from this port, but as
she is a big freight-carrier, It is expect
ed that she will carry at least 2,800,000
feet of lumber. The charter of this
Bteamer, -which, like the rest of the fleet,
was taken on a time charter, gives the
Pacific Export Lumber Company a fleet
which has a combined carrying capacity
of fully 8,000,000 feet of lumber.
Portland's rail lumber trade has for a
long time been much greater than that
of any other port on the Pacific Coast,
and if the Pacific Export Lumber Com
pany continues to expand it operations
for another year In the same proportion
bs it has In the past two years, the water
lumber trade of the port will also be
Steam Yacht "Wild DticIc Cuts Down
Joy Liner Tremont.
NEW LONDON, Conn., July 17. With
10 feet of her bow cut off cleanly in a
collision with the steam yacht Wild Duck,
the steamer Tremont, of the Joy Line,
which left Boston yesterday for New
York, with 300 passengers, was towed into
New London and beached today. All her
passengers had been transferred to other
steamers in the Sound and continued their
trip to New York. Captain Wilcox, of
the Tremont, says the night was perfectly
clear and the steamer was proceeding
on her usual course, when about 12 miles
-west of Cornfield Light, at midnight, a
schooner-rigged steam yacht was made
out on the bow. The officers of the Tre
mont supposed that the yacht would pass
astern of the vessel, as her course seemed
to be on a line diagonal of that of the
No danger was thought of until the
Vacht had approached to within a quar
ter of a mile, when she was hailed from
the Tremont, and no answer was received.
When too late the Tremont attempted to
change her course to avoid the impend
ing collision. -The sharp prow of the yacht
struck her about 30 .feet back of the
port bow, and sheered "diagonally across,
coming out on the starboard side. The
tforce of the Impact was sufficient to throw
passengers from their bunks and caused
the greatest excitement among them for a
time, but the officers of the Tremont
The steamer City of Worcester and the
City of Lowell were both near by, and
promptly went to the assistance of the
Tremont. The passengers were at once
transferred to the City of Lowell. The
crew of the Tremont remained on board
the vessel, and the. ..captain accepted an
offer of the steamer New Hampshire for
assistance to New London.
Immediately after the accident the
Gteam yacht backed away from the Tre
mont and left immediately, coming into
New London Harbor early today. From
shore it appeared that she had sustained
considerable injury to her stem. Captain
Wilcox Insists that If proper lookout had
been kept In the yacht, the collision
would not have occurred. The accident
to the Tremont is the eecond misfortune
that has come to the Joy Line fleet within
three weeks, the steamer Old Dominion
or that line being now on the rocks oft

COALS FROM XEWCASTLE.
High Grain Freights Enable Import
. ers to Secure Cheap' Coal.
The O. R. & N. Co. is bringing a couple
of cargoes of coal from Newcastle. Aus
tralia, and the vessels engaged for the
service are two of the fastest clippers in
the British merchant marine. One of
them is the famous Clackmannanshire,
which has more fast passages to her
credit than anything that has worn can
vas since the days of the Dreadnaught
and the Young America. The other Is the
British ship Cleomene, which Is also
something of a scorcher on the ocean
wave, and has made a number of rattling
TUns in various parts of the world. Both
of the ships, have made a number of pas
sages to Portland, the Clackmannanshire
being exceptionally well known in this
port. In addition to the two cargoes men
tioned; the British ship Torrldon is also
reported under engagement to load coal
at Newcastle for Portland.
It has been over a year since any New
castle coal ships came to Portland, but
the high grain freights out of Pacific
Coast ports has enabled importers to se
cure very low rates for ships coming in
this direction, and has given the busi
ness a new start. The British ship Tox
teth, which arrived at San Francisco from
Newcastle with coal June 15, has refused
a wheat charter at 29s 6d for spot load
ing. In commenting on the matter, the
"The firm that made the offer deemed it
a very liberal- tme, as the Toxteth will
carry nearly 5000-tons of wheat, but the
owners did not"iook at It In the same
"light As no higher bid was made, the
ship has been taken to Martinez, and will
lay up there until rates reach the owners
expectations or drop out of sight. Of the
Dther disengaged vessels in port, the Willy
Plckmers and Otto Glldemeister are tied
.up owing to -the strike, the Maxwell and
Allerton will probably be chartered this
week, and the Henry B. Hyde and Henry
Falling will probably Joad for Australia
or China. The steamships Arab and" Ala
meda also figure among the- disengaged
fleet but they also are tied up because
of the strike."
VERY EXPENSIVE DELAY.
British Ship Clnverdon Loses Thou
sands Throujrli Scarcity of Sailors.
The British ship Claverdoh, which fin
ished loading a wheat cargo at Tacoma
June 29, has been held up since that date
waiting for a crew, and it is still a mat
ter of uncertainty when she will secure
one. At current freight rates the carry
ing capacity of a ship is easily $150 per
day, so that the Claverdon has already
lost JS000 by the delay at Tacoma. If this
delay to a ship had happened at Portland,
the Tacoma papers would have printed
long-winded discourses about the disad
vantages of Portland as a shipping port,
pfr;as it is all happening In Tacoma,
-tpe -matter is dismissed 'with brief men
tion. The Eaton Hall has also finished
loading at Tacoma, and Is awaiting a
crew. Sailors are scarce all over the
'Coast, and the Seamen's Union Is making
the most of it. Sailors who ship on coast-
crs "for the run" from San Francisco to
Puget Sound are demanding $50 for the
trip, and for the down voyage they exact
$40. Thus far Portland ships have been
handled with but slight delay, the com
bined delays of all of the grain ships
that have left here In the past six
months being less than that of the Clav
erdon on Puget Sound.
STEAMER THYRA LIBELLED.
Widow of Workman Killed on the
Vessel Sues lor Damages.
The Norwegian steamer Thyra, lying at
Duniway dock, on the East Side, was li
belled yesterday in the United States Dis
trict Court for the sum of $5000 damages,
Mrs. August Castro, widow of A. W. Cas
tro, being plaintiff In the suit. Mrs. Cas
tro, as administratrix of her husband's
estate, avers that on July 2, 1901, A. W.
Castro had charge of the work of repair
ing and altering the electrical, plumbing
and ventilating appliances on board the
vessel; that a certain hatchway amidships
was left open, and this, being under roof,
the dangerous condition of said hatchway
could not be detected In the dark. Castro
fell through the opening and sustained
such injuries that he died three days af
terward. The plaintiff therefore prays for
a judgment In the amount of $5000, to
gether with costs and disbursements of
suit. United States Deputy Marshal Rob
erts took charge of the vessel yesterday
evening, pending the result of the suit.

werp, Bragg & Co. and the American Book Company, and for two-thirds of this
period he has been located In Portland. Even people who have been opposed to
some of the methods employed by the American Book Company In Oregon are
free to say that the public schools of the state are In much better condition now
than they were five or six years ago, and that a considerable part of the Im
provement is due to the enterprise and energy of Captain Edwards In this field.

Nicaragua Canal. He declared that the
building of Uhe canal by the United States
Government was rendered more neces

to provide the tariff "reformed by its
friends." If they had the wisdom to do
so, but if they did not, there would come
a tidal wave of free trade sentiment that
would be destructive to all our indus
tries. Such friends of a protective policy
as Mr. Blaine and President McKinley,
Mr. Thurber said, recognized this, and all
thorough friends of a protective tariff
should support this policy, even If It does
occasionally affect single Industries ad
versely. The development of our trans
portation system on land and sea Is neces
sary to the command of the world's trade.
On land we have developed our railway
system by subsidies In land, money and
mall pay, with the result that we are
now getting superior transportation on
land for less than half that of any other
nation, and the same principle applied on
the sea would accomplish similar results
there. This, Mr. Thurber said, is a contest
of nations for the world's trade, and
our Government should back up. in all
reasonable ways its own industry, wheth
er of labor or capital, in the effort to keep
the United States to the front.

out its beneficent results. It has afforded
many a small boy of Ithaca a chance to,

Robber's Ballet Stopped by Thick
Hair of Victim.
With two large holes In the slouch hat
he wore, large enough to admit a couple
of bricks, a man who gave his name as
J. Gillespie and said he was a collector
on the East Side, ran into the police sta
tion last night and stated that he had
been held up and shot at, and robbed
of $12 by an unknown man, on Fremont
street, two hours previously.
"I was walking along Fremont street,"
proceeded Gillespie, "when a strange man
sprang up behind some bushes and point
ed a revolver at me. and told me to
halt. He fired two shots at me, which
went through my hat. He made me come
to him, took my revolver from me, and
$12. Then he allowed me to go."
"Show me your hat," said a detective
who was present, and the man did so.
It was then seen that one hole alleged
to have been made by one bullet was In
the crown of the hat, pointing down
"Do you 'mean to tell us that one bul
let tore this hole In the center of your
hat and did not Injure your head?" In
quired the detective.
"My hair is pretty thick," urged the
alleged victim; "the bullet didn't injure
my head In the least."
The detective dexterously passed his
right hand Into the man's side pocket
and drew out a partly emptied bottle
of whisky. The man then "guessed" he
had better go home, and was advised to
have a more complete story next time
he Is robbed. He left the police station
