C Campbell, trusts, yesterday pur chased the Columbia River boats of the White Collar line, and In the future only one company will operate on the river be tween Portland and The Dalles. Tho Co lumbia River & Northern Railroad Com pany, of which JIr. Campbell is general manager, already owns the Regulator line of boats. 'Whether the boats Just purchased will be turned over to the Columbia River & Northern or to The Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navigation Company, the Regu lator line, will be decided by the board of directors. The White Collar steamers Involved In the purchase are the Bailey Gatzert. Ta homa. Astorlan. Metlako and Telephone. The Bailey Gatzert has been on the As toria route, the Tahoma and the Metlako on The Dalles run. The Astorlan has been laid up and the old Telephone, having sur vived her usefulness, has been out of ser vice for some time. The White Collar people had Intended to give her a new hull and new machinery, and It Is probable the new owners mill carry out their plans. The deal also Includes the transfer to Mr. Campbell of two fine sets of new machin ery all ready to be Installed into boats. The engines, which" were built at the Du buque Iron Work In Iowa, are stored at the Overland warehouse. One is a IS-inch cylinder. S-foot stroke, the other 16-lnch cylinder. 7-foot stroke. What disposal will bo made of this machinery has not yet been decided.. The p' ns cf the new company, as al ready a--v-tl upon. Include the building of a fine nev. xisscnger steamer for the Port-land-Dall. . route, and the conversion of the Rcgul tor and the Bailey Gatzert Into oil-burners. The new steamer, which will be ready for service by the opening of the Lewi and Clark Centennial, will cost J100. and will be sveond to none In the Wer in point of speed and equipment. The overhauling of the two principal boat that the company now possesses, the Gatzert and the Regulator, will begin without delay. The latter Is already on the ways, and the Gatzert will be hauled out soon. The other boats of the line will probably also be changed to oil-burners. The steamers Tahoma and Metlako were laid off festerday, and when the Bailey Gatzert returns to her dock from the As toria run this morning she will also go out of .ervice for the time being. In her place on of Jacob Kamm's boats will be put on this morning. The office and wharf of the Regulator line at the foot of Oak street will be given up, and hereafter all steam ers for the Upper Columbia will start from the foot of Alder street, to which place the offices of the Regulator line will be moved. The steamer Bailey Gatzert Is one of the famous sternwbeelera of the West, and has done much to popularize the scenic route of the Middle and Upper Columbia. Every Sunday In 4he Summer season for years she has carried her limit of pas senger capacity in excursions to the Cas cades and The' Dalles. The other boats purchased by Mr. Campbell are smaller, but are, with the exception of the Tele phone, very serviceable craft. As for the future of the Columbia River & Puget Sound Navigation Company the White Collar line Its officials refuse to di vulge their plans beyond saying that they will continue to operate the steamer Flyer on Puget Sound. As for business on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, they are out of it. The Columbia River & Northern Rail road Company was incorporated a year ago to build the road from Lyle to Golden dale. Its officers are: Rufus Mallory, president; H. L. PIttock. vice-president: EL E. Mallory. secretary: H. W. Corbett, C. F. Swlgert Milton W. Smith, W. B. Ayer and Charles Cogswell, directors. STEAMER BRUNSWICK WRECKED. Goes Ashore on Mendocino Const anil May He a Total Wreck. SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 9. The steamer Brunswick. Captain Hammer, is a wreck on south Reef at Fort Bragg, on the Men- ocmo Coast. She went ashore in the gale of last Saturday night and It In not probable that the vessel or any p.art of her cargo will be saved. All the members of the crew got safely ashore. The Brunswick, which Is under charter to the Union Lumber Company, left San Francisco Friday night for Fort Bragg. She arrived there "Saturday, and, after landing her passengers and discharging part of her cargo, a terrific gale blew up. The Brunswick, It is reported, broke her moorings and drifted onto the reef, where ehe was buffeted all night by the hurri cane, her crew being forced to abandon her. Fort Bragg la an open roadsted and ves sels are obliged to He off the shore fast to heavy mooring lines and their cargoes are carried to them on overhead trolleys from the bluffs of the coast line. Th Brunswick was fast to the moorings andi jiaa taxen on part of her load when a' j heavy swell rolled In from the ocean and ' In the pitching of the vessel the mooring lines parted. Before the steamer's en gine could be started, she was carried up on the rocks of the beach. A hole was soon pounded through the planks of the hull and all efforts to save" her were useless. The men of her crew scrambled ashore through the turf and little was saved from the vessel. The Brunswick Is among Ihe latest type of steam schooners on the Coast. She was built in 1S38 at North Bend, Or., and has a displacement of 436 tons gross. She was owned by C A.. Hooper & Co. She carried a crew of about 16 men. FIRE IN SHIPS' HOLDS. Englishman Invents a, New Way of Fighting It. United BUtes Consul F. W.- Godlng, at Newcastle, England, write to the State Department, under date of December 8, as follows: "It Is well known that fires on board a ship are most difficult to contend with: it is next to impossible to find the actual location, there Is danger of suffocation In any attempt to go below, and a Are In the center of the cargo cannot be reached; "The heating of coal cargoes has caused the loss of many ships, and there has been little chance of coping with such a condi tion except by discharging a portion of the cargo and flooding the hold with water which Is often Impossible. ' "Dr. I E. Eames. of this city, has evolved a system for using gas, for which he claims the following: "First It will check spontaneous com bustion where there are evidences of heat ing. "Second It will extinguish fire If It has already occurred. "Third It will prevent the occurrence of an explosion from a mixture of gas and air. "By his method the air in a ship's hold Is rapidly mixed with a sufficient supply of gas to make It efficient In arresting a heated condition, the gas being absolutely nonexploslve. "The apparatus consists of a fairly water-tight wooden box or trough, built on the floor of each hold, at the lowest .point, and as near the center between th. h'voT0''." pared for her oyase. The schooner 1. bulkhcads as Is convenient (In coalbunk ers at the bottom toward one side), and a small pipe leading from the", deck to this trough. In coalshlps the thermom eter tube may serve for the purpose, and when the ship Is carrying a general cargo the tube may remain a permanent fixture. The trough is filled with a few tons of material about one-half as bulky as coal. This, with some gallons of an easily stored liquid, comprises the entire outfit. The entire cost of fitting a ship with ap-. paratus sufficient for charging the hold six times Is estimated at $100. As the material does not deteriorate with age or exposure to the action of salt water, it may be carried for years, yet is always ready for use In case of emergency." GALE OFF THE COAST. Severe Storm No Doubt Raging, hnt No Report of It Received. There is no doubt that a severe storm has been raging off the coast, but no re port of It has reached the Weather Offlco from the North Head or Tatoosh stations, as the wires have been prostrated. At Portland the wind reached a maximum velocity of.32 miles an hour at 4 A. M. yesterday, as Veglstered by the Weather Bureau Instruments. Some of the gusts were even stronger, and probably reached as high as 40 or SO miles. The gale was general throughout the North Pacific States, the wind reaching a maximum velocity of 31 miles at Seattle. 2S miles at Walla Walla, 36 miles at Spokane, and 2S miles at Pocatello. Forecast Official Beats sent out storm warnings Saturday to all coast points In his district, and It is believed they were generally heeded, as no disasters to outward-bound shipping were reported. The rainfall has not been heavy so far In fact. It has been much less than would be expected with the storm conditions prevailing. There Is some fear along Front street of another -freshet, but high water Is not likely to come unless there Is plenty of rain In addition to the warm chlnook wind. In that event the river Is sure to rise, as a great deal of snow fell at the headwaters during the recent cold period. OPIL3I-SMUGGLIXG RING. Operations' Uncovered at San Fran cisco. SAN FRANCISCO Feb. 9. The opera tions of an oplum-smuggllng ring, which is said to have Its headquarters at Se attle, have been uncovered In this city, and one of the gaps has narrowly escaped arrest. February 3 the Portland customs officials notified Collector Stratton that they had seized a trunkful of opium which had been sent as baggage from Se attle to Vallejo.- They gave the number of the trunk check and said that when they seized the trunk It contained 130 flve tael cans of, opium, valued at about $1000 They left one tin of opium In the trunk and sent It to Vallejo. The local customs officials watched the trunk until it was delivered to the room of E. M. Morgan in this city. Morgan, who Is thought to have been warned, was not on hand to re ceive the smuggled stuff and has not been found. The customs men believe that there Is a ring of smugglers operating in this city, and having men all along the coast from Los Angeles to Seattle. . GRAIN FLEET ACCUMULATING. Eight Loaded Wheat Ships In the Lower River. The long spell of stormy weather on the coast Is seriously interfering with shipping; Eight grain vessels are at the mouth of the river -waiting for an oppor tunity to pass out. andthe number will be Increased soon, unless the weather mod erates and the wlndijianges.

He was standing by the wheel, which got away from the control of the quartermaster, and one of the spokes struck Captain Staples on the left shoulder. The blow did not break any bones, but made a very painful bruise that will Incapacitate him for work for some time. Advised to Sell Wreck. Telegrams received by James Brown, of San Francisco, managing owner of the American bark Alex. McNeil, which was wrecked recently on Prates reef on the Asiatic Coast, from Captain Waldemar Jorgensen, master of the bark, advise of fering the wreck for sale at auction. The Alex. McNeil was an old wooden vessel of 1123 tons register and was built In lfC3 at Waldoboro, Me. Her length was 174.4, beam 36.3 and depth 23.4. Previous to leaving San Francisco last Summer to load on Puget Sound for Manila, the bark had been Im proved at an expense of $0000, and nn' ad ditional $300 was pent upon her before she left Puget Sound. Her value, according to James Brown, was about $11,000, and there was no Insurance except upon the one-eighth Interest owned by Captain Jorgensen. The wreck of the steamer Crescent City, which can on Fish Rock, off the Mendo cino roast, January 30, was sold for 3760, A. W. Beadle, of Beadle Bros., being the purchaser. Tide Was Too Loir.

BEATEN IN HORSE TRADE Mike Campbell Snes Robert Will iamson for KIOO. A horactrader who recently made a deal with Mike Campbell must now face a damage suit for 3100. Robert Williamson traded horses with Tommy Camphcll, the ion of Mike Campbell, but the father says the trade was not on the square, and has entered a suit for damages. Tommy Campbell had an old gray horse which he drove to a mall cart. Being In Uncle Sam's employ, and thinking that his old gray horse did not hardly come up to the .standard, Campbell suggested a trade with Williamson. In the com plaint It Is alleged that the terms of the agreement were not lived up to. and that the traders have been damaged to the extent of 3100. "I will give you a horse that will weigh at least 1100 pounds, will be of a good disposition and broken to drive." was Williamson'-? bargain, but he asked 315 boot money between his horse and the old gray one. Now Mike Campbell says that he told Williamson that any trade he made with the boy would first have to be submitted to the approval of the father. He says that while he was away Williamson col lected the J15 boot money from his wife, took the horse away and brought back a horse that weighed between 700 and SCO pounds, had a Dad disposition and was not broken to drive. He thinks he Is entitled to recover his 315. says he has been In convenienced to the extent of 310, and asks exemplary damages to make a total of 3100. - WHO IS MISS DEAN? She Complained That Loral Chinese v Had Abducted White Child. A Portland woman, named Virginia Dean, has complained to the Federal au thorities at Washington that a 3-year-old white child Is In the possession of a Chi nese .family In this city, and that an In vestigation should be made. Attorney General Knox wired United States Attor ney Hall, on January 31. to look into the matter, but noh!ng could be learned con cerning Miss Dean and the baby. As nothing was known at this end of the line, the authorities at Washington were asked to send particulars. A letter was received by Mr. Hall yesterday stat ing that Miss 'Dean had complained that a white baby girl. 3 years old, called Ah Lin. was being held by a Chinese family. The letter stated also that Miss Dean had been notified to call at Mr. Hall's of fice and tcil what she knew about the case. Miss Dean failed to put In an appear ance yesterday, and. of course, nothing of Miss Ah Lin could be learned. An effort will be made today to locate Miss Dean, and her complaint will be thoroughly looked Into. Burned With Molten Metal. PUEBLO. Colo., Feb. 9.
