H. 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.

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.

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.
