spectors Will Decide.
The steamer Dalles City, of The Dalles.
Portland & Astoria Company, came nar
being capsized near LJnnton yesterday
morning as the result of a collision with
the steamer Charles R. Spencer. No one
was injured, but the Dalles City was
crippled and had to be towed back to her
Captain E. W. Spencer, owner of the
fapencer. was at the wheel at the time.
Both he and Captain 8. II. Scammon, of
xne jjaiies city, have filed reports with
united States Inspectors Edwards and
Fuller. An investigation will probably
ie neia tomorrow, to determine who
responsible for the accident.
As usual in such accidents, conflicting
accounts are torn ty the two sides. The
Epencer swung the other boat completely
around by the force of the blow, but as
soon as she was clear proceeded down the
river. Captain Spencer returned to Tort
land from Vancouver. He says:
"Both boats left at 7 o'clock. The
Dalles City went through the bridges
ahead of us, but after we were clear of
the harbor we began to pick her up. Off
Swan Island I relieved Captain Allen at
me wneei. I tried to pass the Dalles
city, fcut she kent swlnelne back and
forth across the channel and refured to
give me a chance to got by. "When near

and when almost illrortiv hohinri mr-
blew one whistle, showing that I wished
to pass to starboard. The Dalles Cltv

ever that may be, the Empire Is keeping
up Its record in getting the best of every
thing, and "Racket's Wife" is one taken
