UPHELD Bl COURT
Counsel for Opposition Says
Case Will Be Appealed to
JETTY TO BE CONSTRUCTED
Vast Timber Area I Accessible to
Wster Root That Will B Opened
When Project I Carried Out.
Irregularity Is Chaired.
Enthusiast who have upheld ths
Tort of Tillamook were lvn cause
for elation yesterday when It became
known that Judge Benson, of Klam
ath Falls, amine for Judge Kelly, of
Tillamook, had handed down a deci
sion sustalnlnjj the Tort of Tillamook
In an action begun by land owner
harlna- Interests In the district that
waa brought into the original Port of
Tillamook and who r opposed to In
creased taxation under the present
'svstem outlined for harbor Improve
ments. IUlrh R. Duniway. counsel for the
plaintiffs, said last night that an ap
peal would Immediately be taken to
the Supreme Court, as he thought the
question Involved should be determined
by the higher tribunal.
The project for Improving the wa
terway, which originally Included a
channel to Tillamook, but which waa
eliminated on a later report sub
mitted by Major Morrow. Corps of :n-a-ineera.
provides for tht construction
of a north jetty at the entrance of the
harbor. It la estimated It will give a
depth at mean lower low water of iO
feet, with a channel extending to Bay
City with a depth at the same stage
of 1 feet.
Pert te Pay Half.
The project baa been approved by
the board of engineers and the War
Ipartment and the latest step has
been to submit It to Congress. To gain
th marine betterments the two porta
are to pay one-half of the estimated
cost, which would make their share
$407,000. and If the total amount la In
sufficient the Government will pro
vide the balance.
It is said there Is between 30.000.000
000 and 35.000.000.000 feet of standing
timber that when cut will largely move
by water and that It la mostly accessi
ble from Bay City or that It can at
least all be delivered at tidewater
there without the necessity of Improv
ing the channel to Tillamook. With
the Jetty completed It Is hoped that
scouring will Increase the depth
greater than calculations Indicate and
that deepwater vessels can be dta
patched with full careoea to Coast
Mr. Dunlway avers that there Is no
disposition on the part of his clients to
delay the adjudication of the legal fea
tures, but that they contend the method
of procedure In creating the present
Port was not regular.
Irregalarlty la Ilared.
The flrst Port was crested under the
provisions of the Legislative act of
li and under the act of 1S0 he
holds that there could be no occupa
tion over the Port of Tillamook, unless
steps flrst were taken to reincorporate
and the matter of extending the Juris
diction was disposed of. In submitting
the question of extending the i'ort's
sone. Mr. Dunlway says that the votea
vers counted together. Instead of those
within the former district belns tabu
lated separately from those cast by
land owners In the additional terri
tory. The method followed, he recites.
Is In violation of the Oregon system.
"In the original Port of Tillamook
there la represented taxable property
of 3540.000 and with the new territory
It Is Increased to 35.t0O.0uO. said Mr.
Dunlway. "The farmers favor one
large I'ort Instead of the smaller ones
and the question at Issue Is. I think,
the only one of Its kind in the state."
K-VOWLES" BODY IS KKCOVEUED
o Trac of Captain and Mate on
Wreck of Sarah Dixon.
With the left arm severed and an
clothing burned off with the exception
f th shoes, the body of Silas Knowles,
fireman of the steamer Sarah Dixon,
who was on duty when hr boiler ex
ploded lata Thursday nlKht Dar Mar
tin's Island, was recovered from the
wreck yesterday. A brother of Knowles
was at the scene and It waa intended
to sond the body to Portland on the
rtestmer Lurline. or start with it on the
gasoline tug Krhn.
Captain "Del" t-liaver was informed
of the recovery, also that Captain
James Shaver, who Is in charge of the
operations of raising tho steamer, ex
pected to beach ber at th lower end
of Deer Island this morning. A start
xnad on raising ber and aa soon as
possible a search was made for bod
ies. That of Knowles waa found In tha
flrehole. Immediately forward of the
boiler, but no trace waa obtained of
those of Captain Stlnson and Mate
MonlcaL There are 35 men at work
and aa soon as sh Is beached United
Htates Inspectors Edwards and Fuller
will visit there and make a thorough
examination, after which she will be
towed hero between two barges, prob
ably reaching tha city this week.
"PLUGS REVEWAX PROBABLE
Vessel Owners Think Dixon Dis
aster May Bring New Rules.
Operators of steam vessels In this
district fully expect that the Govern
ment Inspectors will order that fuse
plugs In boilers be renewed frequently,
probably onoe a month, because of the
explosion on the steamer Sarah Dixon.
The fuse plug removed from the crown
sheet of her boiler le apparently Intact,
the soft metal in the center not having
melted, and In the opinion of some of
the marine fraternity scale might have
formed over the plug so as to prevent
I'nJer the existing regulations fuse
plugs are renewed twice each year. The
average cost Is 31 each and It frequent,
ly happens that the plugs are replaced
more often owing to defects or leaks.
It Is not thought there would be ob
jections raised to putting In new plugs
every month, aa It might be arranged
that those removed could be used later,
probably after being examined. It
would practically mean that the plugs
would be Inspected every 30 days.-
BEACONS OS XEW RTHCCITKES
Lighthouse Inspfclor Announce-!
Tongue Point C'rofslnjr, Change.
Pilots and others Interested were
notified yesterday through the office
of Henry L. Beck, Inspector of the 17th
Lighthouse District, that beginning to
morrow night Beacon No. 1 light and
Beacon No. 3 light. In the main chan
nel, from Tongue Point to Jim Crow
Point, on the Lower Columbia River, a
short distance above Astoria, would be
shown from the new structures.
The locality Is what Is known aa the
Tongue Point crossing, an Important
stretch In the channel between Port
land and the sea, and pilots say that
because of the frequency with which
vessels are navigated there at night
It is highly essential that Illuminated
aids be established and maintained.
