IS LAID TO PILOT
Captain Copeland, of Sunken
! Vessel, Says Patterson, on
Elder, Is to Blame. . -
STRIKING STEAMER UNHURT
Collision Comes With Engines of
Passenger Boat. Reversed After
Various Whistle Signals Were
' Exchanged by Craft.
! ASTORIA, Or.. Aug. 18. (Special.) A
mistake in understanding or in following
lisrnals was responsible for a collision at
12:50 this morning between the passenger
steamer Geo. W. Elder and the steamer
Paniel Kern and as a result the latter
vessel Is sunk in 60 feet of water about
MO feet oft Waterford Light In the Co
lumbia River, 35 miles east of here, and
about a mile above where the same vessel
was wrecked some years ago, when she
was the lighthouse tender ilanzanita.
. The Elder was en route down the river
under the command of the pilot. W. H.
Patterson. When nearing WaterfOTd.
lights were sighted ahead, where the
steamers Kern and Hercules were ex
changing tows or rock barges. Captain
Patterson Immediately blew ono whistle
as a signal for passing, but. hearing no
response, he repeated the signal and then
heard two whistles at short Intervals,
and. believing the Daniel Kern was cross
ing his bow, continued, on his course un
der a slow bell.
Elder Reverses Too Late.
Seeing, however, that a collision was
Imminent, he gave orders for "full speed
astern" and when the crash came, the
Elder's engines were backing. The Elder
struck the Kern with her starboard bow
on the port quarter about 30 feet from the
stern, breaking her propeller and smash
ing a hole In her side, so that she sank
within 20 minutes until only the tops of
her masts were above water. The crew
from the Kern escaped on to one of the
rock barges lying alongside, so that no
one was injured and no lives were lost,
but the members of the crew lost all
their personal effects.
Small boats from the Elder and from
the Hercules were Immediately lowered,
but fortunately their assistance was not
Elder Not Badly Hurt.
The damage sustained by the Elder -was
not extensive and is estimated at 1100.
One' of her plates on the starboard bow
close to the water line was cracked and
another plate higher up was dented. The
cracked plate was covered with a soft
patch on the arrival of the steamer here
and she proceeded on her way down th
Captain J. E. Copeland, master of the
Kern, was in his room at the time of the
accident and Mate Anderson was at the
wheel. The Kern was lying still headed
down stream with her nose alongside a
barge, which she was taking In tow. Ac
cording to his statement and to the wreck
report filed in the Custom-house by Cap
tain Copeland, when the Elder hove In
sight she blew one whistle and this was
answered by the Kern with the danger
signal, four short blasts. A moment later
the Elder repeated her former signal of
one whistle, and the Kern again replied
with the danger signal. As the Elder
kept on -coming. Mate Anderson seeing a
collision was unavoidable gave the order
for full speed ahead under a port helm,
but owing to the broken propeller was
unable to get out of the way.
Pilot Charged Careless.
In his wreck report. Captain Copeland
gives as the cause of the accident, "care
lessness of the pilot on the Geo. W.
Elder." Pilot Patterson declined to make
any statement for publication, other than
to say he did all he could to avoid the

which at that point is about V0 feet wide
and her masts extend about ten feet out
of water, making a serious menace to

over the Supreme Court," he declared.
"I object to the lnuendo this committee
casts when It asks to be continued, but
n&kes Do report as to what It has done.
I object to a committee composed of
lawyers, each one of whom may have
case in the Supreme Court, now or
"The report of this committee cannot
but be held In discredit," said Scott of
Adams, "when one member has been
hailed as a go-between from the pur
chasers to a purchased court. I believe
it is the duty of this member to with
draw from the committee. I do not
believe there is anything wrong and
that the court will be exonerated.
Halsey Committee Assailed.
"This committee," said Beach of
Mason, "was appointed on the eighth
day of the first spasm of this extraor
dinary session of the Lleglslature, and
we are now on the 67th day in the sec
ond spasm, yet the committee Is not
ready to report. - It has had all the
time necessary, but now asks that It be
permitted to hear all the dirty Insinua
tions that any one who may have a
grouch against the Supreme Court
chooses to bring before It. This man
De Wolfe and his friends go out into
the slums and byways and dig up all
the despicable rumors against the Su
preme Court they can. It is proposed,
I understand, to have this committee
report to another extra session, which
the Governor will call in February,
thus keeping the Supreme Court in the
public eye until that time. It seems
to be the policy to continue the stencil
uncovered by investigating committees
Indefinitely, but I warn you that you
cannot handle pitch without being
Halsey Defends Probes.
Roused by these remarks. Chairman
Halsey declared that the members of
the committee were Just as solicitous
of the welfare of the Supreme Court as
the representatives who had spoken.
"But if it was your intention to hand
the members of this committee a white
wash brush, you selected the wrong
men," be declared. "When a reputable
lawyer told the committee that the in
crease in the Supreme Court in 190S was
in the Interests of corporations having
personal injury suits to be decided,, we
believed it our duty to Investigate.
"It has been Impossible to get the
testimony on this matter up to this
time, but we expect to have the wit
nesses before us next week."
The House was called upon to resent
th remarks of Hanson by Bell, of
Pteroe. "His Insinuation that the mem
bers of thiswcowrardttee are only anxious
for their 5 per day is dirty and un
worthy oT a member of this House,
Lambert, of Whatcom, declared "that
the House had been Imposed on by an
"irresponsible crank," naming De
Wolfe, who originated the charges.
Report Today Is Ordered.
The outcome was the making of the
resolution a special order for Friday
at 3 o'clock, and the giving of instruc
tions to the committee to make a report
pmorrow morning. -
A small minority later in the day
stirred up a similar wrangle over the
bill restoring Supreme Court nomina
tions to the primary system. Hanson
demanded- the passage of the bill in
order that the "rights of the people
usurped last Winter be restored."
He declared the old primary law was
amended in the regular session at the
behest of attorneys for corporate Inter
ests. He had seen, he said, candidates
for the supreme bench lobbying with
the special interests In conventions to
get votes for their own nominations.
Replying to this. Beach declared it was
no worse for a candidate for the bench
to lobby in the convention than it was
for a candidate to make a gumshoe
campaign throughout the state.
Lambert, of Whatcom, referred to
"posters on every barn door" put up
by one supreme bench candidate defeat
ed In the last primaries, and Palmer
declared that no reputable man ever
sought nomination as a Supreme Judge
who made a personal canvass. Palmer
challenged ten men in. the House to
arise and name the nine Judges now on
the bench, and his challenge was not
"The most serious question," said
Todd, of Whitman, "Is not the method
of nominating Judges, but the restor
ing of confidence In the Supreme Court.
The only way to do that Is to do what
people of the state are demanding
pass this bill today. I am not advo
cating this because I believe In either
the direct primary or the convention
method of nominating Supreme Court
Judges, but to make the point that the
time must come when the Judiciary
shall be appointed by the chief execu
tive." The bill carried, 64 to 10.

YOUTHFUL PAIR ELOPES
THIRTEEJf-TEAR-OIiD BOY AN'D
GIRL LEAVE KAMPA.
Take Camping Outfit, but Little
Money and No Food Early
Return Is Expected.
TTAMPA. Idaho, Aug. 18. (Special.)
No trace has yet been found of Veda
Lynde and Dick Bowman, the two 13-year-old
youngsters who on Saturday
last eloped from this place. Dick Bow
man is tne son of R. E. Bowman, one of
the prominent business men of this city,
and Veda Lynde is the adopted daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. C W. Lynda, neiShbora
of the Bowmans.
The absence of the young pair was dis
covered Saturday night, and it Is almost
a certainty that they left together. From
the fact that the boy took with him two
complete outfits of wearing apparel, and
that part of the girl's clothing was found
not far from the homes. It la presumed
that the girl is traveling disguised as a
boy, to avoid discovery.
They took with them two blanket rolls
end a complete mess outfit for camping,
so it is thought that they are camping
out on the Boise River, not far from here.
As far as Is known they took no food
supplies, and had very little, if any,
money with tbem.
Both children are bright and intelligent,
and there Is no reason apparent for their
leaving home, their relations there being
of the best. The police of this section
of the country have been notified to stop
the runaways. It is thought that a few
days of roughing it. will be sufficient to
impress upon the young elopers the ad
visability of returning to their homes.
MORTARS TO BE TESTED
Fort Stevens to Be Subjected to
FORT SEVENS, Or, Aug. 18. (Spe
cial.) Captain Pratt, of the Ordnance
Corps, has arrived at Fort Stevens and
will, as soon as preparations are com
pleted, test the mortars recently re
modeled with the object of determining
the quality of the work recently per
formed and the efficacy of the 12-inch
mortars under the new conditions
which will prevail. This test consists
in firing heavy charges in such a man
ner as to bring the maximum strain
on all weak parts.
It has been decided to send a detach
ment, possibly a company, of infantry
from Vancouver Barracks, Washington,
to garrison Fort Canby, Washington.
The recent completion of new batteries
at Fort Canby. together with the in
stallation of the fire control system,
renders it emphatically necessary to
provide a heavier guard at that plaoe.
Lieutenant Cooper, at one time a
resident of The Dalles and formerly
quartermaster officer of this district,
has recently arrived in Fort Stevens
and will spend several days visiting
friends in this locality. He has been
on duty on the Eastern Coast for the
past year and a half, and, when his
leave of absence expires, will return
to that Coast.
