Stranded Steamer Bought by
North Pacific Company of
Efforts Will Be Made Immediately
to Haul, the Craft Into Deep
Water Owners . Are Confl
- dent of Success.
C. P. Doe, manager of the North Pa
cific Steamship Company, now operating
the steamships Roanoke and Geo. W.
Elder, between Portland and San Pedro
and way ports, has purchased the wreck
of the Pacific Coast Company's steamer
Corona, now on the sands to the north
'Ward of the entrance to Humboldt Bay. -
During the past six weeks Mr. Doe has
been In the vicinity of Eureka and has
made an extended examination of the
wreck.' If It Is found possible to save the
Corona she will bo floated. It has been
stated that her hull is full of sand and
that It will be impossible to save the
vessel. Mr. Doe. however, has had con
siderable experience in wrecking vessels,
particularly the Oo. W. Elder, and is
satisfied that the Corona can be dragged
Into deep water.
With a full crew of competent -wreckers
and all the paraphernalia requsite for the
work, Mr. Doe will leave San Francisco
today for Eureka, where he will remain
until his efforts are proven a success or
, failure. If successful, the Corona will
probably be placed on the run between
Portland, Coos Bay and Eureka. Mr.
Doe began operations with the Roanoke
and' later acquired an Interest in the
Geo. W. Elder, which -was bought from
the O. R. & N. Company, by J. H. Peter
son. Mr. Doe' looked after the wrecking
of the vessel and placing her in com
mission. Later he bought out Peterson.
The steamship Corona, operating be
tween San Francisco and Eureka for the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company, while
on the north-bound trip and in command
of Captain Boyd, stranded on the north
Jetty of the Humboldt bar on the morning
of March 1 last. At the time she had
on board 100 passengers and a crew of
30 men. With the exception of one man,
H. Erickson, all on board were saved.
The Corona was one of the crack steam
ers of the fleet. She was a sister of the
Pomona and was built in Philadelphia In
1S8S, and measured 9C5 net tons burden.
Her dimensions are: Length, 220.7 feet;
beam, 35.2 feet; depth of hold, 15.7 feet.
Ship St. Nicholas Arrives With Pack
of Columbia River Association.
ASTORIA. Or., Aug. 23. (Special.) The
American ship St. Nicholas arrived in this
afternoon from Nushagak River. Bristol
Bay, Alaska, with a cargo of 29.865 cases
of salmon, the pack of the Columbia
River Packers' Association's cannery at
Nushagak. The St. Nicholas reports an
exceptionally pleasant trip, and she made
the record run of 17 days from port to
port: The same vessel made the run to
Nushagak last Spring in 16 days, which
was also the record for sailing vessels.
The St. Nicholas was in company with
the Ship John Currier on the evening of
August 8, the night before the latter ves
sel was wrecked. The fog was very
thick and a light wind was blowing from
the southwest. When approximately five
or six miles from the coast the St.
Nicholas found 26 fathoms of water, so
stood oft. shore, leaving the Currier still
standing on her course. That was the
last seen of her.
While In Unimak Pass the St Nicholas
saw the Guy C. Goss, which is under
charter to the Northwestern fisheries, but
left her soon after reaching the Pacific.
New Steamer for Portland Run Will
Be Christened "Rose City."
.On completion of the repairs now being
made to the steamship Lawton, of the San
Francisco & Portland Steamship Com
pany, she will be rechrlstened the Rose
City, in honor of the City of Portland.
The steamship Kansas City, recently
purchased from the Ocean Steamship
Company, of New York, will probably be
renamed the Bay City. This information
was conveyed in a message received yes
terday by J. H. Dewson from General
Manager Schwerin. . The Kansas City
will be the first vessel on the route. She
Is now outward 'bound from New Tork
and is due to arrive at San Francisco
early in October. She is fully equipped
for passenger service.
When the renaming of the new steam
ers for the Portland run was first
broached a number of names were sug
gested. Among them were Willamette,
Sacramento, Beaver and Seal.
Spot Ship Taken by Kerr, Gifford &
Co. for Grain Loading.
The French bark Vlncennes, which ar
rived In several days ago from Glasgow
with general cargo for Meyer. Wilson &
Co.. was chartered yesterday for out
ward loading of wheat and barley by
Kerr, Gifford & Co. The vessel is a
union ship and the rate established by the
Association was probably paid for the
outward freight.
The Vlncennes is a craft of 1739 net
tons burden and is capable of carrying
SiXiO tons of cargo. She moved from the
stream to Columbia Dock No. 1 yester
day and will begin discharging this morn
ing. She will clean up within a week

Owner of Launch Lotus round
Guilty by Inspectors.
A. Norman, one of the owners of the
gasoline launch Lotus, which collided
with the launch Nancy, the evening of
August 11. inflicting considerable damage
on the latter craft, was yesterday found
guilty of disobeying the navigation laws
and the matter was referred to the
customs officials for action.
The investigation was held before Lo
cal Inspectors Edwards and Fuller. All
evidence went to show that the master
of the Lotus was at fault. As neither
the man in charge of the Nancy nor the
master of the Lotus was operating under
a license, it was up to the Inspectors to
turn the matter over to the customs offi
cers. Under the law a fine of $500 can
be imposed on the operator of any. ves
sel propelled by power for disobeying the
navigation laws of the United States.

Circus Postmaster Has
No Sinecure
Finding letters for Fat Lady From Her
Affinity, the Living Skeleton, and
l'a.vlng Postage for Clown Who Makes
111 Like Roosevelt, Among Hia Trials.
ONE of the most remarkable post
masters in the world is Jules
Tumour, a clown in Ringllng Brothers'
circus. The postmastershlp is an im
portant function in the organization of
this band of wanderers, which comes
to Portland Sunday, and the responsi
bilities of the office are great. The
perqulsitles are many, however, and
although Jules does not receive his
pay from Uncle Sam, he is by no
means the loser at the end of the sea
son. Tumour is not only postmaster,
he is chief moneyorder clerk, general
distributer and carrier, and as com
pensation for his services he is al
lowed certain exclusive privileges.
Like many rural postmasters, Jules
Tumour carries a side-line. He takes
subscriptions among the performers
for the various professional news
papers, and in addition to this agency
he has the prerogative of selling the
official song books. The commission
from these sources nets a considerable
sum during the season, and the privi
leges are well Worth saving. But he
receives even a more substantial rec
ognition on the day before the colony
disbands and the circus goes. Into
Winter quarters. Every performer, ac
cording to his means, makes Jules a
present, ranging from $5 to 10, thus
bringing his combined Income up to a
substantial figure.
On arriving at .a new town Jules
proceeds at once to the postoffice for
the circus mallbag, and for an hour
or so in the morning he is the most
popular man around. He is the bearer
of state secrets and he could tell many
a romance if he would.
The "living mountain of flesh," who
traveled with the sideshow last sea
son, gave him no end of annoyance
over the subject of her "affinity." The
"affinity" was suspected of being a
living skeleton, with a similar aggre
gation touring the South, and every
day the fat woman would hand Jules
a pudgy letter, written in a fat round
hand, requesting him In a stage whis
per to mall it. Jules really grew to
dread the answers to these burning
epistles, as the fat woman would re
ward him with a kiss. The postmaster
being a married man, lived constantly
in fear that his wife would witness
one of these performances and insist
on his resigning from office.
Every day on the road Jules is In
trusted with an important mission.
Many of the performers are citizens of
other countries, and, like nearly all
foreigners, they send money-orders to
the folks at home. The clown fre
quently goes to the town postoffice
with several thousand dollars In his
pockets and the lavish way he - re
mits large sums to persons with high
sounding names in Persia, Poland,
France, Austria and Japan Is the talk
of the town for months afterward.
Never in a single case has he made a
mistake sent the wrong sum of money
or written the address incorrectly. On
his return to the big tent he gives re
ceipts and memoranda to each person
who has sent a money-order.
"It isn't such an easy Job as you
might think," said Jules recently.
"Some of these performers are sus
picious, and if I don't bring them a
letter when they expect one, they
think I have hidden it somewhere or
don't want to give it to them.
"And then there is Al. Mlaco, a good
clown, but an tmposter. Just because
he makes up like President Roosevelt,
with false teeth and a rough rider hat,
he thinks he can send mail for noth
ing. He simply writes in one corner
of the envelope, 'official business
free,' and thinks it ought to go at
that. In the end it is I who always
have to pay the postage stamps."
Administrator for Xevlus Estate.
C. W. Muggins, secretary of the
Portland Railway. Light & Power
Company, was appointed to adminis

Nevius, the employe of the company
who was brutally murdered by a
highwayman on the Rose City Park
line the night of May 27. Mr. Huggins
had succeeded in locating the dead
man's father and mother in Illinois,
and it was at their request that he
was appointed administrator. The

ASTORIA, Or., Aug. 23. (Special.)
Yesterday aftarnoon Collector of Cus
toms Carnahan telephoned the Secretary
of the Treasury at Washington, asking
that a revenue cutter be sent to the relief
of the passengers and crew of the
wrecked ship John Currier, who are on
the beach at Nelson Lagoon, Alaska

All Vessels at Astoria Must Undergo
. Thorough Fumigation.
ASTORIA, Or., Aug. 23. (Special.) In
structions have been received from the
Surgeon-General at Washington, directing
that all vessels arriving here from coast
wise ports shall be thoroughly fumigated
once each month, the object being to de
stroy the rats on board in order to pre
vent a possible spread of the bubonic
plague. This order Trill apply to sailing
vessels as well as to steamers, but ar
rangements will be made to cause as little
delay and Inconvenience as possible. The

Bay and Pugret Sound will be fumigated
at Portland after their cargoes have been
removed, but the sailing vessels and
steam schooners will be treated here, un
less they have certificates showing they
have been fumigated within a month.
These regulations will not necessitate
any of the vessels being taken to the
Federal quarantine station, unless there
should be sickness on board, as the pro
cess used In killing the rats is to burn
sulphur in the hold after the hatches have
been tightly closed.
Kumantia Makes Fast Passage.
The German steamship Numantla. from
Hongkong and way ports, arrived In the
river yesterday, and left up during the
afternoon. The Numantla made a quick
run across the Pacific, arriving In four
days before her schedule. She will reach
Portland early this morning. . The Nu
mantla is bringing one of the largest car
goes ever brought eastward by one of
the steamers of the Portland & Asiatic
Steamship Company.
Vice-President of General Federa
tion Discusses Their Work.
"The growth "of the women's club
movement in the United States has been
remarkable." said Mrs. Philip N. Moore,
of St. Louis, vice-president of the general
federation yesterday. "The most con
servative estimate of membership would
place the figure at 500,000, and the pros
pects favorable for an increase of fully
50 per cent during the coming year."
Mrs. Moore is on a vacation trip and
is touring the ' West. She arrived over
the Canadian Pacific and is. full of en
thusiasm over the scenic beauties of the
trip. During her stay In Portland she
will be the guest of the Woman's Club
and also the Collegiate Alumnae. Mrs.
Moore will go South through California
after leaving Portland.
"The women's clubs have accomplished
a world of good," continued Mrs. Moore.
"In my own state, Missouri, we have ob
tained the passage of the compulsory ed
ucational law, the child labor law and
have stood by the pure food law. All
this means a great deal. Aside from pro
tecting the child, it betters the condition,
of the mother. We have things so ar
ranged that a woman need not work all
night and day too in order to live.
"A meeting of the General Federation
of Women's Clubs has been arranged to
convene in Boston in 1908. Another inter
esting meeting will be that of the colle
giate Alumnae, which will hold its quar
ter centennial in Boston. I have the honor
to be president of the Alumnae, and the
work we are doing Is extensive. One line
of work taken up by this organization is
the European Fellowship for Original Re
search. About 1500 women have taken
advantage of these fellowships and it is
most interesting to hear them tell of the
work accomplished."
Mrs. Moore was entertalnea r'rlday at
the home of Mrs. Ralph Wilbur, and to
day will be tendered reception at the
home of P. J. Mann by the
Woman's Club.

Tie a stone to a string and, holding the
loose end of the string, whirl it around your
head and note the pull of the stone. This

a weak government more liberty for the

preventing the atone from taklntr a header

sunicient authority to "keep house." This
cry has generally been known as Hepub

the fundamental difference between these
two great parties In the past. These oppo
