MEN LEAVE SHIP
Steamer Elba Loses Nearly
All Her Sailors.
i'BOARDING-HOUSES ARE BLAMED
Bnt They Deny They Used Improper
Inflacnces-Tbrce Deserters in Jail
German Cdnaul Jerslstrs
in His Duty.
The old subject of sailors deserting their
ehlps at the Instigation of boardlnfy-house-keepers
was cruising about yesterday and
gossip kept all sails well filled. Nearly
the entire crew of sailors of the Ger
man steamship Elba deserted "Wednesday
night. If this ended the story, perhaps
the sequel would- not be so far off. but the
Action seems to be only In the first chap
ter. On "Wednesday three sailors left the
ship. The story goes that O. Lohan, Ger
man Consul, at once domanded that they
be returned to the vessel, and compelled
the master, H. Bruhn, to swear out war
rants for their arrest In the United States
Court. The report fa that this aroused I.
TM. Sullivan, of the boarding-house-keepers,
to demand that the "kibosh" be put
on the affair, and to threaten if this were
not done to take all the sailors off the
ship. Consul Lohsn is a new man In this
port, and whether green In experience or
not, he did not see where the boarding
house men came In, and flatly said as
much. He Is said to have remarked that
he didn't care a German continental
about the boarding-house-keepers; that
the question was none of their business,
and that he would do his duty even in
spite of the lower world and high water.
It Is not known whether Sullivan's
threat had anything to do with the whole
sale desertion that night or not. All that
Is positively known Is that the deliver'
took place, that the ship was cleaned out
of sailors almost as slick as a whistle,
and that Sullivan was on hand with a
boat to take them away. He denies, how
ever, thatshe is responsible for their deser
tion, and declares they went ashore of
their own free will. He asserts that
neither he nor any of his associates set
a foot on the vessel or In any way vio
lated the law. Yesterday he and Peter
Grant, one of his partners, talked freely,
and did not deny their connection with
tho desertion as outlined above. The
other side of the controversy, however,
was as mum as an oyster.
"Those men deserted of their own ac
cord," said Sullivan. "I was on the dock
when they came off, but I used no im
proper or illegal influences. The boatswain
led the way. He threw out the gangplank.
JHe let because he was not. satisfied with
the treatment he received on board. He Is
an American citizen. Thcro he is in the
Peter Grant talked along the same
strain. "We respect the property rights
of ships," said he. "Wo did not go on
the ship, and did not instigate the deser
tion at all. Can we be blamed for the de
sire of tho men to come ashore?
"Yes, we expect to get the censure and
condemnation of the public in this case.
But If the public only knew the actual
conditions of this business, it would not
be so ready to raise its voice against lis.
Tho public labors under misinformation.
If It would stop to consider, it would not
blamo sailors for deserting the hard life
on a ship, nor would it censure us in our
Evidently the ship men had secrets to
hide, for they feared to open their heads.
"I can't tell you anything," said Cap
tain Bruhn. "How many men did I have
on board? Come around later and I'll tell
you. How many have I Left? I don't
know, for I haven't been on the ship for
E. C. Hochapfel, secretary of tho firm
of T. M. Ste'ens & Co., charterers of the
vessel, didn't want anything about the
matter to get into the newspapers. "We
labor under enough difficulties now," said
he, "and we don't wish to advertise them
any more than we can help. It is neither
The Oregonlan's nor the public's busi
ness, anyhow. Wo are the only shipping
firm that Is working for Portland's In
terest. We find It hard enough to do busi
ness already. Airing this trouble before
the public will only make things more
difficult for us in our dealings with ship
owners." Mr. Hochapfel flatly refused to give any
information. The reporter approached
him on every sdde. but found him fortified
It is understood that Captain Bruhn,
when reporting the first three deserters,
was not in favor of .having them arrest
ed. He has had his fingers singed before
in troubles with boarding-house people in
different parts of the world, and was chary
of any more imbroglios with them. Sulli
van said yesterday that this was the dis
position of the captain, and that Consul
Lohan was the man who had stirred
things up. Sullivan does not think much
of Mr. Lohan, and intimated strongly that
the gentleman would some day have his
eye teeth cut In Interviews with various
people around town he is reported to have
expressed even stronger sentlmenta
The three deserters were arrested yes
terday by the United States Marshal.
They are: Felix Wensll, Karl Schlecht
and Janos Lachman. They all shipped at
Antwerp. They had an examination be
fore United States Commissioner Sladen
yesterday. Proof of desertion was com
plete. They were committed to tho
County Jail to bo kept there until a writ
ten order for their removal is received
by the German Consul, but not for a
longer period than two months.
Endeavor will probably be made to bring
in the other deserters. Owing to the per
sistency of Consul Lohan, a merry time
seems to be in store. The closeness of the
steamer's people In guarding the number
of deserters from the public rendered It
Impossible yesterday to ascertain posi
tively how many sailors left the ship,
but by common report there were over
20. Sullivan asserts there were only 11 by

OTTAWA, One. Aug. 14. A meeting of
the Cabinet was held today and an order
was passed approving of the arrangement
through the Canadian Ministers in London
for steamship service between Canada and
South Africa. Service will begin in Octo
ber, and steamers will sail from Montreal
and Quebec In Summer and-Hallfax and
St. Johns In, Winter. In South Africa,
steamers will call at Cape Town and prob
ably Durban and another port.
LONDON. Aug. 15. In its issue of this
morning the Daily Express asserts that
Canada will subsidize, to the extent of
$150,000, and Great Britain to the extent of
175,000 a year, the new line of steamships
to be established between Canada and
South Africa, which Is the first portion of
the great plan elaborated by Colonial Sec

Mncli Dredgine I Needed.
The British ship Euphrosyne grounded
at the mouth of the "Willamette' yester
day. She was in tow of the Harvest
Queen and in charge of Pilot W. H. Pope.
The vessel Is in 22 feet of water.
A large amount of dredging is necessary
at the mouth of the Willamette. The
river la between seven and eight feet
above mean low water, and the falling
of the river makes immediate dredging
imperative. Complaints are heard that
the city dredge was not sent down sooner.
The dredge has been at work at the
mouth of the river for about two weeks.

method of raising funds has been growing.
It being considered that they were not in

overwhelmingly. The new law VH1 not go

Important Action Taken by the
Typographical Union Convention.
CINCINNATI. Aug. 14. The Interna
tional Typographical Union, in Its annual
convention today, took important action
regarding the interchange of type.
matrices and engravings between offices;
also regarding the jurisdiction of the union
In connection with the American Federa
tion of Labor and on the regulation of
"regulars" and substitutes and other
practices in composing rooms. There was
a close contest between Washington and
Newark for the next convention. Tho
former city won because it was thought
that more could be done for favorable
legislation by meeting at the National
capital than at any other place. Presi
dent Lynch announced that night ses
sions would be held hereafter in order
to complete tho business of tho conven
tion this week.
The fight between the American Fed
eration of Labor and the American Labor
Union was brought before the convention
by a letter to President Lynch from H.
L. Sholdlce. of the Laundryworkers' Union
at Denver. Sholdlce wanted the printers
to restrict their members strictly to print
ers, and not Include printers who are also
members of the Machinists' Union or
other unlona The proposition was voted
down, as was also a proposition to ex
clude married women from membership
in typographical unlona
Among the letters of greeting today
was one from President Gompers, of the
American Federation of Labor.
When It came to voting for the next
place of meeting, Salt Lake was with
drawn and the ballot resulted in the se
lection of Washington.
A proposition was discussed at -length
that the practice by foremen of selecting
their forces from day to day, or not

that the practice of foremen of selecting
their forces from day to day be prohibited.
It was adopted with an amendment that

The committee on laws also reported
back the following which was adopted:
"Tho practice of interchanging and buy
ing matrices previously Issued, either In
type, matrices or photo engravings be
tween newspaper or Job offices not owned
by the same firm and published In the
same establishment is unlawful and
should not be allowed."
A long discussion followed the propo
sition of the Chicago delegates for rein
statement of the Chicago Typographical
Union, No. 10, In the Chicago Federation
of Labor. The discussion extended Into
the matter of jurisdiction and It was
held that the Chicago Typographical
Union was expelled for not participating
in a sympathetic strike of the pressmen
when the International Typographical
officers ordered them to maintain their
contracts with the publishers. The dis
cussion involved the convention In much
talk about withdrawing from the Ameri
can .Federation of Labor unless it enforced
discipline at Chicago. A compromise
resolution that was offered as a substi
tute was defeated, and the original reso
lution presented through Delegate Mad
dlgan. for the Chicago Union, was adopted
almost unanimously as follows:
"Resolved by the International Typo
graphical Union, that Its officers are in
structed to withhold turther payments of
per capita tax to the American Federa
tion of Labor until the question has been
conclusively determined whether the
American Federation of Labor has the
authority and disposition to compel obed
ience to Its laws and mandates on the
part of Its local chartered bodies and to
compel justice and fair treatment of tho
locM representatives of an international
body, a component part of the American
Federation of Labor, from acknowledged
Injustice and Illegal acts on the part of
the chartered local bodies of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor."

from June 1 to date showed a balance on
hand of S40.S23. i

The matter of a union trade mark and

Military Parade the Feature of the
Day at Council Bluffs.
COUNCIL BLUFF3, la., Aug. 14. The
feature of the second day of the reunion
of the Society of the Army of the Philip
pines was the military parade which oc
curred during the forenoon. The parade
was headed by Governors Cummins and
Savago and their staffs, and was partici
pated In by regular Army troops from
Fort Crook, the Nebraska and Iowa Na
tional Guard, high school cadets from this
city and Omaha, and the Veterans of the
Philippine War. The marchers were re
viewed by the two Governors and Gen
erals Hale and King.
It is estimated that 20,000 people wit
nessed the parade, which was an imposing
military affair. Two regimental and two
state bands headed the different divisions.
St Paul and St Louis are making a
contest for the next reunion,. General
Jacob H. Smith, Colonel Cosgrove, of
South Dakota, and General Charles King
are mentioned as possibilities for the pres
idency, of the society.
An Important step was taken at the bus
iness session in the entire revision of the
constitution and by-laws. The member
ship was extended to Include those who
served In the Philippines before July 4,
1902, the date of President Roosevelt's
proclamation. Instead of July 4, 1901, as
previously limited. Provisions are added
for the organization of state societies and
local camps; fixing the annual dues of
each member at $1, of which 50 cents Is
to be paid by the local camp to the state
society and 23 cents per capita by the
state society to the National organiza

sons of active members may be admitted
to actfve membership, thus perpetuating
Tonight a sham battle and various mil

THE BIBLE IN GAELIC.
About to Be Issued for Benefit of
Gaelic-speaking Highlanders take a very
considerable Interest In the efforts made
by the General Assembly of the Estab
lished church to supply them with a new
Gaelic hymnary.'but they are much moro
interested in the revised edition of tho
Gaelic Bible, just about to be Issued, and
which Is the work of a commission ap
pointed by the erstwhile Society for Prop
agating Christian Knowledge, now known
as the "Trust for Education in the High
lands and Islands." so long ago as lSSL
A complete Bible in idiomatic Scottish
Gaelic Is really a comparatively modern
thing. Even after the authorized version
was Issued In 1611 no one seems to have
set about getting It translated Into Gaelic
a language then much more "widely
spoken than at present, though there wa3
at that date one and only one Gaelic
book printed. This was Bishop Carse
well'8 Praver Book. Finally, by Install
ments, complete Gaelic versions of the
Old and New Testaments were ready In
1E01, and after careful revision were pub
lished In quarto form In 1S2G. That edition
has been the- recognized standard Gaelic
classic form that day to this, and has
always been acknowledged to adhere more
closely to the original than the author
The 1S26 edition went out of print in 1SS0,
and in 1SS1 the Society for Propagating
Christian Knowledge appointed a commis
sion to prepare a revised and corrected
translation. When In 1SS2 the revision of
the New Testament was all but com
pleted, the work was Interrupted by the
education endowment (Scotland) act, re
stricting the operations of the society and
setting up In Its place "The Trust for Ed'
ucatlon." "The trust" was, however, em
powered to bear one-half the cost of com
pleting the revision. The commission re
sumed Its labors In 1896, and, as has been
said, the result will be In the hands of the
public In a few days. Some of the changes
made on the old version will sound strange
to Bible-reading Highlanders; for. exam
pie, Jehovah Is now uniformly Inserted In
place of God or Lord, and the Hebrew
"Shoel, which signifies the body of de
parted spirits, -is retained in the text In
the poetical parts the arrangement In lines
has been 'followed so as to accept the par
allelism characteristic of Hebrew poetry
The division of the text Into paragraphs
has also been adopted, as in the English
revised version. There can be no doubt
that the whole has been a work of im
mense labor for the revisers, notably tho
late Drs. Maclaughlan (Edinburgh) and
Clark (Kilmalll), who at first acted as
Joint editors. In the Old Testament re
vision. Dr. Maclean, of Glasgow, and Dr.
Norman Macleod did much valuable work,
in connection with Professor Macklnnon,
who acted as secretary. If this edition
serves for 76 years, as tho last has done,
and Gaelic speaking continues to decline.
It is likely that Dr. Macleod's prophecy
that another revision will never be wanted
will in all likelihood come true. The
great pity is that no arrangements have
been made to Issue the work, except as a
large quarto volume, at a price 1 guinea
which will place It outside tho reach of all

the bay with the schooner he found the
bar too rough and the weather too foggy
to cross out, so it was decided to put
back. The vessel were In a narrow chan
nel at the time. Inside of Nehalem Bay,
where there Is not much room to turn.
In doing so a strong southwest wind
struck the schooner and she went aground
stern on, on the south spit of the bar.
Fortunately, the bow of the schooner
was pointing out to sea, and when the
breakers struck her, the position of the
vessel broke their force, for had she gone
broadside on she would have lost her deck
load and would have bumped to pieces In
a very short time, as she Is an old ves
sel. The tug tried hard to get her off.
but she would not move. As soon as the
Merchant struck, the second mate jumped
overboard with a line. Every tlmo he
came up In the breakers he called to
those on board to play out until all the
rope was out and he was free and at the
mercy of the breakers.
Fortunately for him, the tide was right.
and he battled through the breakers and
succeeded in reaching the chore. The re
mainder of the crew remained on deck,
being drenched with every sea that broke
over tho vessel. It was 12 o'clock at night
before the'erew managed to get off. One
of the crew had several fingers broken.
The tug managed to keep the schooner's
head to the sea.
The Merchant had 260,000 feet of lumber
on board, and it remained Intact, and an
effort Is being made today to save it. Her
keel has come ashore, and the vessel is
gradually sinking In the sand, where, no
doubt, ehe will become a total wreck.
Part of tho lumber will be saved.

VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 14-(To the
Editor.) The law which allows Mr. Bur

to have them in possession In another Is
surely wrong. It was probably Intended
to stop the market hunter from shipping

cuting one who shoots solely for his own
