THE MORNING OREGONIAN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1902.
HAD A STORMY PASSAGE
BIG ORIENTAL LIXER 1XDRAVELLI
DELATED BY BAD WEATHER.
Indrapara Detained by an Accident
at Hong Kons-German Bark
Bertha Ready for 'Sea.
The Portland and Asiatic liner Indra
velll reached Ainsworth dock at 2:30 yes
terday afternoon, bringing about 3000 tons
of miscellaneous merchandise, a consid
erable proportion of which was for Port
land, and the " remainder for Eastern
points. The lndravelli had a rough trip
coming over, and was over a day late in
arriving, In addition to the time lost
through delays on the other side. The
lndravelli left Astoria on her last out
ward trip November 6, and arrived at
Hong Kong December 15. She remained
there until December SO, sailing on that
date for Portland. The finst stop was
made at Moji, and she sailed from that
port January 7, reaching Kobe a day
later and taking aboard considerable
freight. She sailed from Kobe January 9
and reached Yokohama January 11. Fine
weather was experienced all the way up
the China seas, and albo when she left
Yokohama, January 11.
A northwest wind for the first few
days Increased to a moderate gale on
the 15th and IGth, and on the 17th a heavy
gale, with high seas and a violent snow
storm, made it very uncomfortable on
the vessel, the decks being flooded most
of the time. The weather for the next
two days showed no improvement, and
on the 20th, when the line was crossed,
the barometer indulged in a remarkable
exhibition. It dropped to 27.99 without the
usual accompaniment of a violent storm,
but as It rose a few hours later the
weather became worse, and on the 21st a
strong gale was raging, with but little
abatement, for three days. It was dur
ing these three days of heavy east and
southeast winds that the vessel lost a
full day's time, but even after the 24th
the weather was anything but pleasant.
Captain Craven's many friends in this
city were somewhat alarmed over the re
port telegraphed from Astoria that he
was quite III with stomach trouble. He
was confined to his bed when the ship
reached this city, but was by no means
in a serious condition. He Is suffering
from an attack of la grippe, and. In or
der to secure rest from the cares of his
big ship, and also good medical care, he
was taken to the hospital as soon as the
ship reached the dock. He expects to be
all right in a few days, and will be ready
to take the ship out when she completes
her outward cargo. First Ofllcer Porter
is looking after the business end of the
steamer In the meantime.
David Walls, who has been chief en
gineer of the steamer since her appear
ance on the Portland route, will leave
the vessel before she sails from Port
land and proceed to England to take
charge of the engine-room on the Indro
mayo, a new steamer of the same line
as the lndravelli. The steamer will com
mence discharging this morning.
The Indrapura, which follows the lndra
velli, has been unavoidably detained in
Hong Kong by a collision, and will not
reach Portland before "March 1.
Tacoma Doing Good Work With
Cheap "Von-l nlon Grain Handlers.
The Tacoma dock grain handlers re
ceive only 22Vi and 25 cents per hour, com
pared with 35 cents per hour paid in this
city, but they are doing as good work as
has ever been done In this port. The Ta
coma Ledger has the following regarding
the last three ships that were loaded at
"Wheat stowed away in the hold of a
vessel at the rate of 164 4-15 bushels per
minute for nine consecutive hours, was
the' feat accomplished yesterday at Hal
four, Guthrie &. Co.'s warenouse on tne
four-masted British bark Puritan, Cap
tain Amesbury, which finished her cargo
at 5 o'clock last evening. This is equiv
alent to 2 11-13 bushels per second, or
4 2-5 tons per minute, a total of 2G4 tons
of wheat per hour, aggregating 4222 2-9
sacks, or 985G bushels, per hour.
"The Puritan has aboard aHotal wheat
cargo of about 3G97 tons, amounting to
about 59,130 sacks. During the nine work
ing hours of yesterday alone she took 38,
000 sacks. Last Wednesday the Puritan
was shifted from the stream to the
Balfour docks for stiffening, and in two
and one-half hours took on 8000 sacks.
"McCabe & Hamilton, stevedores, Mon,
day afternoon, in the four working hours
of the day left after the lining was fin
ished, put 13,130 sacks of wheat into the
Puritan. They had orders to finish her
Tuesday night, and yesterday morning be
gan work at 7 o'clock, and all day yes
terday the wheat was stowed away at
the rate of 264 tons per hour, a total of
2375 tons being put aboard. The total
cargo of the Puritan aggregates about
138,021 bushels, and she is said by ship
ping men to .have received the quickest
dispatch of any vessel on record on this
Coast of recent years."
"With the Puritan finished, a total of
five cargoes are in port now ready for
sea. The three-masted British ship Glen
elvan. Captain E. E. Robblns, which was
shifted into the stream .yesterday, has a
total of 2141 tons of wheat aboard,
amounting to about 117,254 bushels. The
Glenelvan received only ordinary dispatch,
27 working hours being required to put
her cargo in her hold, including stiffening,
which is an average of 4342 bushels per
hour, which is by no means slow. She
will get to sea in a day or two.
"The four-masted German bark Robert
"Rlckmers, Captain Schwarting, finished
her cargo Saturday night, and, although
she has been unusually long in port, ow
ing to the loss of an anchor chiefly, she
received pretty quick dispatch when she
began taking cargo. The Rlckmers Is
under charter to Kerr, GIfford & Co., and
has a . cargo of 3334 tons, aggregating
about 124,469 bushels. The whole cargo
was loaded In 29" hours, of which, how
ever, S" were put in on stiffening. But
21 hours were required to take cargo
proper, it being stowed away at the rate
of 5152 bushels an hour.
MORE WHEAT CARGOES.
German Bark Bertha Make a Total
of 22 January Wheat Ships.
The German bark Bertha, the 22d grain
ship to finish loading at Portland this
month, completed her cargo yesterday af
ternoon, and will clear today or tomor
row. At least one more vessel, the Lita,
vAlI finish this month, and there is a
possibility that the number may be
swelled to an even two dozen by the
Cambrian Warrior or the Reinbek, both
of which are nearly ready for sea. The
in-port list was increased yesterday by
the arrival of the British ship Lord
Shaftesbury, which comes from Ham
burg by way of Honolulu. She brings a
part cargo of general merchandise to
Meyer, Wilson & Co., and, so far as
known, is on the free list. As she is a
pretty good carrier, her arrival without a
charter will not Improve the already
weakened condition of the freight mar
ket. The list of ships in port is still
holding up to pretty good proportions,
and there will be over a dozen unfinished
vessels In the river February L
FERRY STEAMERS COLLIDE.
Serious Loss of Life Narrowly Avert
ed on North River.
NEW YORK. Jan. 30. The Jersey Cen
tral ferry-boat Central was run into by a
railroad tug in the North River during a
snow storm today. There were 500 pas
sengers on the ferry-boat, of whom about
100 were women. The Central found it
very heavy going in the storm and was
feeling her way slowly out Into mid
stream. About a quarter of a mile from her slip
at Communipaw one of the heavy tugs of
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, having In
tow a float carrying a dozen loaded
freight cars, crashed into the Central be
low the paddle wheel on the women's
cabin side of the vessel. Before the Cen
tral could reverse her power the tug
had forged its way through the light
woodwork that covers the ladies' cabin
and the women inside were panic-stricken.
Their shrieks, combined with the crack
ling sound of the breaking timbers, quick
ly brought a number of the men passen
gers over to their side of the boat. The
men rushed over so quickly that the Cen
tral careened, and it was feared for a sec
ond that she would turn turtle.
The Central's runnlg gear was not
damaged, however, and she soon righted
herself and proceeded to her New York
slip. Twelve women fainted, but they
were soon revived. No one was badly
The snow, which began falling here
yesterday morning, continued through the
night and today. At 9 o'clock this morn
ing the total fall was four inches.
WAS CONDOR LOST IX COLLISION.
Captain of Lightship Believes the
Matteawan Struck Her.
SEATTLE, Jan. 30. Great excitement
has been caused in local marine circles
by the theory of collision between the
Condor and Mattcawan, advanced by
Captain Hasdorff, of the Cape Flattery
lightship, and every circumstance tending
to throw light on the fate of the two ves
sels Is now cited in support of a deduc
tion that appears most tenable. The
steamers sailed from Ladysmlth and Vic
toria, B. C, respectively on December 3.
and passed through the Straits within a
half hour of one another. The course of
the Matteawan bound for San Francisco
and the Condor for Honolulu would have
been exactly the same for at least 20
miles after leaving Flattery.
The Matteawan was noticed in the
afternoon by the weather observer at
Neah Bay, six miles from the termina
tion of the Cape. He has so reported to
the local oltlce. Still later Captain Has
dorff. of the lightship, stationed 14 miles
south of Cape Flattery, and anchored off
Flattery Rocks, noted the steamer south
ward bound, about two miles off, and ev
idently in distress. The Condor must
have been at that time but a short dis
It is now believed here that the Mat
teawan put back for shelter at Neah Bay
and at some point near and undoubtedly
southward of Cape Flattery collided with
the Condor. The terrible marine tragedy
which would follow such a collision Is
accepted here as the explanation of the
awful mystery which shrouds the fate of
the missing craft.
STORMS UNDERMINE LIGHTHOUSE.
Great Sea Wall Made Necessary at
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Jan. 30.
The storms and high surf during the past
week nearly undermined the Point Wil
son lighthouse. The continued beating of
the surf on the spit on which the light
house is located has washed It away so
that the lighthouse Is now only about
50 feet from the water, when heretofore
it stood 200 feet therefrom. A lighthouse
engineer who visited the scene a few
days ago decided that In order to protect
the building a sea wall 1000 feet long
would have to be constructed. This
work will be commenced as soon as the
weather conditions are favorable. The
lighthouse was built 22 years ago, and
this season's storms are the first to cut
away the site.
FULWOOD IS CHARTERED.
After Long; Delay and Heavy Loss, a
Lumber Charter Is Accepted.
The British ship Fulwood, which has
been in the river for nearly two months,
has at last accepted a lumber charter, and
will leave up from Astoria this morning.
The rate was not made public, but in view
of the weakness In grain freights it Is
believed to be quite moderate.
The Fulwood refused 40 shillings for
grain loading on arrival in the river, and
the failure of her owners to take advan
tage of this rate has caused the loss of
many thousands of dollars by the decline
There are still two disengaged grain
ships in the river, the Lord Shaftesbury
and the Versailles, both late arrlvala
Astoria Marine Notes.
ASTORIA, Jan. SO. The British ship
Star of Germany, which has been out

been ordered to come Inside and proceed
to Portland to load wheat for Europe.
The master of the British ship Fulwood
received word this afternoon that his ves
sel had been chartered to load lumber at
Portland for South Africa.
Captain Vaughan, of the sunken French
bark Henriette, received word this after
noon that he had been appointed master

Owners Trial of the Spokane.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30. Over 200
invited guests went on the owners trial
of the Spokane, of the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company's line, , tpday. Cap
tain Thomas Wallace was in command of
the vessel, and upon this occasion a speed
of 14.S5 knots an hour was made. Next
Sunday morning, in command of Cap
tain Alexander, the Spokane will sail for
San Diego, taking the place of the Santa
Rosa, and will remain on that route at
least a month.
Dismantling the Ernest Reyer.
ABERDEEN, Wash.. Jan. 30. Alderman
Sherwood, who bought the wreck of the
French bark Ernest Reyer, ashore near
Qulnault River, for $1200, is dismantling
the vessel. He went to Portland and
made claim to chronometers taken away
from the bark by the captain and brought
them back with him. This property Is
worth all he paid for the wreck.

HALF A MILLION DOLLAR FIRE AT
Several Building In the Business
District Are Burning No Loss
NORFOLK. Va., Jan. 31. At 2 o'clock
this (Friday) morning, fire was discov
ered on the first floor of the Columbia
building on Granby street, occupied by
Brown's saloon, Nedder's restaurant and
on the upper floors by about 150 offices.
In 15 minutes tho flames were bursting
through the roof and the rear wall had
fallen. Explosions of whisky barrels in
Brown's saloon blew out the front of the
first and second floors and drove the
flames across the street.
In less than half an hour the building
of the Atlantic & Virginia CJpthing Com
pany was in flames. The four-story
building on the corner of Plume and
Granby streets, occupied by the John
ston China Company and apartments, to
gether with four three-story brick build
ings adjoining It, were burning at 2:30,
and It looked as if the entire eastern
down-town section of the city were
threatened. A half million dollars may
not cover the loss.
2:30 A. M. All the north wing of the
Atlantic Hotel Is in flames. Wind is
blowing and Johnston's China store and
the flats above are completely gutted.
3 A. M. The large department store
of Watt, Rettew & Clay, is burning
fiercely. Tho Academy of Music Is in
this block and will probably go next.
The walls of the Atlantic Hotel, on the
Branby-street side, have fallen and
those on Main street are ready to topple.
No loss of life has so far been reported.
4:30 A. M. Watt, Rettew & Clay's de
partment store will probably be saved, as
the firemen have succeeded in extinguish

thus far the Are has not crossed to the
west side of Main street nor spread
southward on Main street. While the
Are is not yet under control. It is not
thought the flames will spread much
further. The Atlantic Hotel Is In ruins.
4:50 A. M. The Are at this hour is un
der control and nothing else will go. The
loss probably will run over $500,000. The
burned district is spread over a city block
and at least 150 business Arms and liv
ing apartments were consumed. Colonel

Itinerary Completed by the Commit
tee on Arrangements.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. Tho commit
tee on arrangements for the reception of
Princo Henry held another meeting, and
completed the Itinerary of the Western
trip which will be taken by the Prince.
The desire to meet the wishes of Prince
Henry to see as much of the United States
as possible in the time alloted to his visit
has resulted in a programme which allots
a very short period of time to many of
the localities that hoped to have the
Prince with them at least one or two
days. In Cincinnati his stay will bo less
than half a day, and In other cases it
has been neceeisary to cut out important
cities or break up tho long projected night
runs. Atlanta has been omitted from the
programme, and Chattanooga probably will
be tho extreme Southern point.

A Pleasant, Simple, but Safe and Ef
fectual Cure for It.
Catarrh of the stomach has long been
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or bloat
ing sensation after eating, accompanied
sometimes with sour or watery risings,,
a formation of gases, causing pressur
on the heart and lungs, and difficult!
breathing, headaches, fickle appetite, nee-,
vousness and a general played-out, lan.i
There Is often a foul taste in tho mouth',
coated tongue and If the interior of the)
stomach could be seen it would show a;
slimy, inflamed condition.
The cure for this common and obsti
nate troublo Is found in a treatment!
which causes the food to be readily, thor-4
oughly digested before it has time ta
ferment and irritate the dellcato mucous
surfaces of the stomach. To secure a
prompt and healthy digestion Is tho ona
necessary thing to do, and when tho
normal digestion is secured tho catarrhal
condition will have disappeared.
According to Dr. Harlanson tho safest:
and best treatment Is to use after eaclx
meal a tablet, composed of Diastase,
Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seal
and fruit acids. These tablets can now
be found at all drug stores under the
name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and
not being a patent medicine can be used
with perfect safety and assurance that
healthy appetite and thorough digestion
will follow their regular use after meals.
Mr. N. J. Booher, Chicago. III., writes;
"Catarrh Is a local condition resulting
from a neglected cold in the head, where
by the lining membrane of the nose be
comes Inflamed and the poisonous dis
charge therefrom passing backward into
tho throat, reaches the stomach, thus
producing catarrh of the stomach. Med
ical authorities prescribed for mo for
three years for catarrh of the stomach
without cure, but today I am the happiest
of men after using only one box of Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets. I cannot And
appropriate words to express my good
feeling. I have found flesh, appetite and
sound rest from their use."
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the safest
preparation, as well as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form o
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach, bil
iousness, sour stomach, heartburn and
bloating after meals.

Half a dozen cars or more of either train

A DAMAGED PROSTATE
There is no such condition as "weakness" in
a man otherwise strong and robust, and if tha
following facts aro understood he may reallzo
the uselessncss of treating it as such.
Anatomy and physiology teach us that tho
Prostate Gland, eo-called neck of the bladder, 13
the very center of the reproductive system in
the male. Inflammation of any organ Invaria
bly causes disordered function of that organ
and symptoms peculiar to tho organ inflamed
arise. It should be apparent that the Pros
tate, when damaged by long-continued and too
often - repeated excitement, that disordered
function must result. Congestion of the Pros
tate, by these factors, is so long kept up that
It finally becomes localized as a chronic affec
tion, and a catarrhal condition of the ejacula
tory and prostatic ducts establishes itself. This
Is Invariably followed, if cure is not effected,
by all those symptoms known as "weakness."
The greater number of patients suffering
from this "weakness" are healthy, robust men
In every other respect, men who possibly havo
been treated with tonics, electricity, etc.. for
a weakness which, if the above has been mado
clear, will be understood never to have ex
isted. Some years -ago we called the attention
of the medical profession and others to tha
fact that the above well-defined disorders were
not weaknesses, but symptoms, remits of In
flammation, and that stomach drugging could
not cure, but procedures directed toward re
pairing the damage always proved successful,
as Indicated Immediately by Increased circula
tion and renewed strengtn. We send free on
application a colored chart of the organs,
which will be found useful In home diagnosis
and interesting to all wishing to study tha
anatomy of the male.
