NELSON DID NOT FOUNDER
ARRIVED AT PORT TOWNSEXD
TVas Picked Up by the Steamer
Walla "Walla and Towed North
Damages Are Not Serious.
PORT TOWNSBND, Wash., Dec. 5.
The British ship Nelson was picked up In
distress by the steamship "Walla "Walla,
and towed here today. The Nelson had a
marvelous escape from, being consigned
to the bottom of the sea, according to the
captain of that craft. She crossed the
Columbia River bar 10 days at;o, and be
fore she "had got a great distance encoun
tered a severe storm and was roughly
handled by the elements. Her cargo or
wheat shifted, causing her to list to star
board and go almost on her beam. ends.
In this condition she was picked up by a
tug and an effort was made to tow her to
Astoria, but the tug had to abandon her.
Later the powerful tug Tatoosh took hold
of her. but found It Impossible to tow her
In, owing to the fury of the gale and high
seas sweeping the bar. So the Tatoosh
decided to tow her to Puget Sound, but
had not proceeded far when the gale in
creased in fury and on Tuesday night at
10 o'clock the hawser parted and tho
Tatoosh was unable to llnd the vessel,
which had to weather the storm as best
Tho Nelson fired rockets and burnd
liashllghts all night, but failed to attract
the attention of vessels, but on Wednes
day morning the Walla "Walla picked her
up north of Gray's Harbor. A high sea
was on at the time, and it was with much
difficulty that a hawser was gotten on
"board. The hull of the Nelson Is practi
cally intact, but her bulwarks were
smashed, lifeboats gone, forerlgglng car
ried away and cabins damaged. There
were only three inches of water in her
hold. The extent of the damage to her
cargo of wheat Is not known. Captain
Biondi. Lloyd's agent, will go to Seattle
tonight and a survey will be held there
STORY OF CAPTAIN HALIi.
"Where He PIcIced the Nelson Up,
and the Tow to Port.
VICTORIA, B. C. Dec. 5. The steamer
Walla Walla, Captain Hall, which picked
up the British hark Nelson off Cape Flat
tery at 3 o'clock on Wednesday and towed
ner to Port Townsend, arrived here this
evening. When sighted about 40 miles
southeast of Cape Flattery by the Walla
Walla, the Nelson was in a dilapidated
condition, and was laboring heavily In the
big sea which was piling up under the
effects of a southeast gale which was
"blowing. The ship had a heavy list, her
"bulwarks were gone and her headgear had
been carried away. She was flying a sig
nal which the officers of the Walla Walla
read, "Can you take me in tow?" Think
ing there must be some mistake about
this, as the ship seemed to be going along
all right, Captain Hall passed under the
stern of the vessel and asked the captain
what he wanted. He then learned from
the captain's own lips that he wanted to
"be taken in tow, and Captain Hall says he
asked him to tow him to Seattle. Captain
Hall replied that he could not do that,
"but would' take him into the Straits, where
he could secure a tug. Captain Hall
steamed to within 200 yards of the ship,
and, rigging a flyllne, threw it onto the
ship. By this means a steel hawser was
stretched between the two vessels. The
steamer proceeded all night under slow
steam, and when morning broke they had
reached smoother water and better time
was made. Captain Hall says he was
afraid to drop his tow when they got in
side the Cape, as she had a decided list,
her cargo having shifted, and her crew
was exhausted from trying to straighten
out the cargo and afterwards working at
the pumps when the vessel was taking
water, there "being three inches in her
The captain of tho Nelson expressed
himself as being much dissatisfied at the
action of the captain of the Tatoosh in
leaving him off the Columbia. He says
the weather was rough, but the night was
rlear. The hawser wore away as it
passed under the ship's cutwater. Upon
Ills arrival in Seattle Captain Hall will
libel the Nelson for a large amount as
salvage for the company and crew.
TOWED INTO ELLIOTT BAY.
Officer in ChnrRe of the Nelson Did
Not Know When Hawser Parted.
SEATTLE, Dec. 6. The British ship Nel
son was towed Into Elliott Bay last eve
ning by the tug Holyoke.
The Nelson first encountered bad weath
er a week ago, about 135 miles west or
Astoria. She struck a hurricane which
threw the ship on her beam ends, tore
away every sail, and shifted the cargo
until she had at least a three-foot list to
starboard. How the ship managed to live
in the hurricane is due entirely to the
fact that the storm did not last long. Tho
next morning, under the supervision or
Captain George Perrlam, .the master ot
the vessel, a new set of sails were set.
and the ship started on Its course to Asto
ria, arriving outside the iar last Tuesday
morning. It happened that the tug Ta
toosh was the only tug available, and it
was late In the afternoon before she tied
onto the Nelson. At first it was attempt
ed to get the vessel inside the harbor at
Astoria, but this had to be abandoned.
The tug then change.d its course towards
Puget Sound, in an endeavor to bring the
ship into shelter.
After the tug was well under way for
Puget Sound, Captain Perrlam, of the
ship, went to his cabin to get a little
rest, thinking that the tug would not en
counter any trouble In getting the ship
into shelter. It was S o'clock in the even
ing that his second mate came rushing
Into the cabin, and said the ship did not
seem to be moving forward, and that for
some time he had not been able to see
the tug's lights. Captain Perrlam imme
diately went upon deck, and found that
the hawser connecting the tug and the
ship had parted, and that the ship was
rapidly drifting toward the shore. At this
time the vessel was off Shoalwater Bay.
and the wind was blowing a furious gale.
The captain immediately set all of the
sail he could and got the vessel away from
the shore, for the ship had been rapidly
approaching it, and the lights from the
bay could easily be seen. In the meantime
Captain Perrlam had had shot off several
rockets in an endeavor to let the tug
know of its whereabouts, but his efforts
did not meet with any success. But the
ship was under fair control by this time,
and succeeded in living through the night.
By morning the Nelson had made her way
a considerable distance north of Gray's
Harbor, having been sent along by the ter
rific force of the wind. It was not long
before the steamship Walla Walla was
sighted, and Captain Hall, of that vessel,
consented to tow the Nelson as far as
Port Townsend. It was no easy matter
for the big steamship to hitch to the then
unwieldy sailing craft, for there was a
high sea on. and the greatest skill had to
be exercised in bringing the ships along
side. After considerable delay a connec
tion was effected and the ship brought into
HAD ONE BOAT SMASHED.
Horila Strikes a Heavy Sea and Goes
to Victoria for Examination.
The Norwegian steamship Horda, which
crossed out of the river with the Lang
hank last Saturday evening, put into Vic
toria after leaving here, and reported that
she had been hit by a sea after leaving
the river, and it was thought that she haa
been injured seriously. One of her boats
was smashed, but aside from this there
was no damage of consequence. A diver
made an examination of the hull, and,
landing everything all right, the vessel
proceeded on the way. The Langbank,
which left the -river at the same time, has
apparently proceeded on her way. The
master sent back word after leaving here
that if his ship was damaged he would
put Into San Francisco. As he has not re
ported at the Bay City, the vessel was
BELEX AXD LATIMER,
Two More Wheat Cargoes Ready for
the Lome Trip Around the Horn.
An even half dozen cargoes for the first
four days of the week were rounded out
yesterday, when the British ship Latimer
and the French bark Belen cleared. The
Latimer was dispatched by Balfour. Guth

Falmouth for orders, with 9S.5S6 bushels
of wheat. The Belen was dispatched by
Epplnger & Co. for the same port, and
carries 111.231 bushels of wheat. Twr and
possibly three more cargoes will be dis
patched this week, but unless some of
the overdue fleet gets around by the eariy
part of next week the business will come
to a standstill right at a time when it

minor sons of a Chinese merchant of Wal
la Walla, named Eng Go. The latter was
on his way from China, accompanied by
his two sons, and Just before reaching
this port on the steamship Olympla died

application for admission they were
refused by Collector Huestls, and the
matter was taken to the department,
which sustained the Collector's decision,
and the boys have been ordered deported.
Eng Go has considerable property in

ADVICE FOR ASTORIANS.
"SandbaKKlnj? Investors Must Slop,"
Says Samuel Elmore.
"If Astoria wants to secure new enter
prises, and accomplish the establishment
of new industries, the owners of desirable
sites will have to be .made to see the folly
of attempting to sandbag prospective in
vestors into buying land at Impossible
prices." said Samuel Elmore, of Atnrn
yesterday, at the Portland. Mr. Ehnore
is vice-president of the Columbia River
Packers Association, and one of the most
prominent capitalists and business men of
the city by the sea."
"The failure of the flour mill project,"
continued Mr. Elmore, "should be an ob
ject lesson. For It demonstrates that peo
ple who wish to locate in Astoria have
no idea of paying speculative prices for
building sites, when other cities are in
the field with offerings of valuable con
cessions. The flour mill was backed by
responsible business men, who asked for
no bonus or other inducement, save that
land be sold them at a fair figure. They
offered to pay $10,000 for a site, and to
Invest a large amount of capital In a "mill
plant. Land Values rose surprisingly when
the proposition was made public, and the
Investors, were scared on!. Now the re

"Portland will be the Chicago of the
Northwest It is destined to because the
financial and commercial center of all this
North Pacific Coast country. Astoria's
participation in the onward march will be
of meager proportions unless sufficient
inducements are offered to attract cap
ital. The grandparents of the present
generation in Astoria acquired land in
large tracts, and held to it, because they
had faith In tho ultimate development
of the region. The children of the orig
inal holders have been selling town lots
whenever opportunity offered, but there
has been no attempt to meet large inves
tors even half way. Until that is done

The subjoined article, which has ap
peared In papers in Belgium, France and
England, was sent from this country
for publication in Europe by M. Rudolph
Meyhoffer, who came from Brussels a3
an international delegate to the Young
Men's Christian Association Jubilee in
Boston last June. He stayed long
enough to study Industrial and educa
tional conditions in our leading states,
including the burning question of Amer
ican trade supremacy. The conclusions
of this article presenting a glimpse of
how "others see us" cannot fall to bo
of Interest to all American readers.
"England ano other European countries
are anxiously asking for the causes of the
commercial supremacy of the United
States. A recent number of the English
edition of the 'Review of Reviews' says:
"Cassler's Magazine (an English period
ical) contains an interesting series of
short articles by some of the most prom
inent engineers and business men in the
United States upon the question of Amer
ican competition. Most of the writers
agree In saying that the American work
man Is the chief agent in enabling Ameri
can manufacturers to take first place In
the world. Walter MacFarland, of Pitts
burg, gives one important reason for this.
" 'It appears that the American work
men are much better time-keepers- and
far less given to dissipation than those
in Great Britain. One of the best firms
of British shipbuilders, which has had no
trouble with its men for years, recently
stated that there is a loss of time,
amounting to nearly 20 per cent, due
largely to drunkenness. If anything
approaching these figures is true gen
erally, there can be no surprise that
(English) firms open to competition from
well-managed American works should
have a hard time.
"In Inquiring as to the cause of this
greater sobriety of the American, the fact
appears that 20 years ago business in
terests in the United States paid no at
tention to the effect of the beverage use
of alcohol or of tobacco on working abil
ity. About that time, the now almost
universal study of physiology, which In
cludes with other laws of health thoso
which relate to the nature and effects of
alcoholic drinks and other narcotics, be
gnn to be a legal requirement for all pu
pils in the public schools of this coun
try. During the past 10 or 15 years the
children have been carrying from the
schools to the homes of the 75,000.000 peo
ple of the .United States the story of
the evil nature and bad effects of alco
holic drinks and other narcotics. As a
result of tho diffusion of this knowledge,
the railroads of the United States now
almost universally refuse employment to
men who drink, whether on or off duty.
Total Abstinence Required.
"Hon. Carroll D. Wright's Labor Bu
reau investigations show that more than
75 per cent of the employers of skilled
labor in the United States require total
abstinence of their employes, and 50 per
cent of the employers of unskilled labor
demand the same. Th.?se requirements, the
cordial acquiescence In them by the em
ployed, and the commercial supremacy
which this knowledge helped to secure to
the United States, have been promoted
by the truth taught by the school that
alcoholic drinks injure working ability.
"The different reception given by work
men to the employers' demand for ab
stinence where scientific temperance Is
not taught In the public schools Is well
illustrated in the following Incident: The

the American workmen, which makes
them able to do very exact and precise
work, which he says is not possible in

not to leave the education on this sub

but that It 'should be undertaken by- the
state. Surely if the state must encourago
the traffic for revenue It should In fair
ness educate every child in government
schools as to the nature and danger of
alcohol, and the benefits of total absti

will only educate the children against

cially may even yet be saved.'
"It has been wisely said that 'Indus
trial supremacy belongs to that country

for their use in production, that nation,

warmly of the work done by this bureau,
and it Is evident from, his comments that
he believes it has a bright and growing
future. In fact, the comments of Secre
tary Wilson tend strongly to confirm a be
lief now current In Washington, that It
will not be long before the management
and control of all public forests and forest
reserves will be vested In the Department
of Agriculture, rather than In the Interior
Department, as at present.
The administration of forest reserves by
this latter department has not been a suc
cess, and the new regulations Issued by
Secretary Hitchcock are in direct con
formity with the Ideas that have been
advanced by the Forestry Bureau of the
Agricultural Department from the first.
It Is known, moreover, that a number of :
oinclals of the Interior Department are of
the opinion that forest reserve adminis
tration 13 a matter that should be left to
the Agricultural Department, and they
have so suggested to the Secretary.
Work of the Bureau.
JThe work of the Forestry Bureau of the
Department of Agriculture Is conducted
along three lines:
First Forest management, which In
volves the preparation and execution of
working plans for Federal, state and pri
vate forest lands.
Second Forest Investigation, which in
cludes the study of commercial trees, of
economic tree planting, of forest fires,
grazing, lumbering, forest products and
other Important lines of research.
Third The making and maintenance of
records which cover the work of the bu
reau. In his annual report Secretary Wilson
The Bureau of Forestry has before It a fu
ture rich In possibilities ot useful work if its
resources do not fall too for behind Its actual
needs. I have not hesitated to recommend a
considerably Increased appropriation for this
bureau for the coming year, because of tho
vat Interests which depend upon forest reser
vation. In a very real sense, an appropriation
for these purposes protects and promotes the
Interests, among others, of all that vast brxly
of our citizens to whom tho success of Irriga
tion, mining, grazing, transportation or the
timber trade are of primary Importance.
This bureau has been In existence but
one year, yet In that brief time It has
made extensive studies of the hemlock,
red fir and redwoods of the Pacific Coas.t,
as well as of the yellow pines of that and
other sections. And yet the work ha as
yet been just begun. One of the most im
portant and promising lines of work of
the bureau Is Its study of economic tree
planting, and its co-operation with farm
ers and others in making forest planta
tions. It will be seen at a glance that the work
of this bureau has a much wider scope
than the forestry work of the Interior De
partment. This bureau is designed and
operated with certain fixed ends In view.
It is striving to accomplish certain spec
ified things In every state In the Union,
and It has a capable and efficient force
of field and office employes with whom to
accomplish these several purposes. A con
flict between the forestry division of the
Agricultural Department and the forestry
forces of the Interior Department cannot
be avoided. The two will-often cover the
same ground simultaneously, or one after
the other, thus wasting good time and
effort. There would seem to be, and by
many officials in Washington, is believed
to be, a great many weighty reasons why
all forestry affairs should be left to one
department, and In point of equipment and
efficiency there can bo no question as to
which Is the better equipped for the work.

Not a. Patent Cnre-All, Nor a Modern

Cure for Dyspepsia.
In these days of humbuggery and de
ception the manufacturers of patent
medicines as a rule seem to think their

Is refreshing to note that the proprietors'

pepsia, who will give the remedy a trial

When a Japanese connoisseur breaks some
precious piece of pottery or porcelain, ho

Instead, he has it joined together, gener

that the fracture Is boldly shown and
commented on. as it were, by the frame
exposition of the method by which It is
made good. Curiously enough, a distinct

is in most cases added by these Irregular'

is preserved at no loss of artistic beauty;
indeed once more it Is made clear that the
two may always walk hand in hand.
