Battleship Oregon Never Once
Struck, Writes Lieutenant
Commander. TALK FALSE, SAYS JENSEN
Captain Tease, Pilot of "Cranky"
Vessel, Reassures Pessimists That
AYlllanietto - Columbia Harbor
Is Good Average.
If there are any who believe a canard
that has been circulated since the visit
here of the famous battleship Oregon,
during the Elks' convention, that she
Btruek several times on the way from
Portland to Astoria, no doubt their im
pressions will undergo a change after
reading what Lieutenant-Commander
H. X. Jenson. who was in charge of the
Oregon but now commands the cruiser
Pennsylvania, of the Pacific Reserve
fleet at Bremerton, has to say.
Captain Archie Pease, who piloted
the Oregon from the sea to Portland
nd return and who previously guided
the big cruiser Maryland over the same
course, wrote to Lieutenant-Commander
Jenson, asking if any report had been
made to him that the Oregon struck
' in the river or if he thought or has
reason to suppose she hit anywhere in
the river, and he has received the fol
Statement False. Says Officer.
"I am In receipt of your letter re
questing me to make a statement in re
gard to the cruise of the Oregon in the
Columbia and Willamette rivers.
-The statement circulated that the
Oregon touched when you piloted her
from Astoria to Portland and return Is
"Your work was excellent, and If I
ever have the pleasure of going to
Fortland again, I shall demand you as
It would have been little to the dis
credit of the channel had the Oregon
scraped along In places, for she la
known' as the most "cranky" ship in
the Navy and steers like a big box.
Those who had the pleasure of making
the run in the river either way on
the battleship realized what was meant
when it was said by Admiral Reynolds
that she "crabbed," as the ship swung
first one way and then the other, and
it was admitted by Captain Pease that
she was guided largely with her en
gines, rather than the steering gear.
Channel Averages With Best.
Mariners feel that the days for criti
cising ' the channel between Portland
and the sea are past. Each season
ships of greater draft are being han
dled, and when full cargoes of lumber
and flour are dispatched on tramps and
liners with the Bam; ease as they are
sent from other harbors on the Coast,
It is thought to be high time that a
few disgruntled kickers and pessimists
learn that some of the world's largest
and most prominent harbors have been
created through continual dredging,
and that the average channel depth at
mean high water of 123 principal ports
In the world Is but 31.63 feet. E.
Corthell. a civil engineer who compiled
the data, gives the Columbia River
credit for 38 feet at high water. The
average of 31.63 feet Is with Constanti
nople, where a depth of 150 feet exists,
and without Constantinople the aver
age depth Is 30.66 feet.
XEWPORT GETS COMPETITION'
New Vessel Will Vie AVlth Anvil and
Patsy for Cargo.
R. D. Morse, of Newport, is the lat
est to toss his hat into the marine ring
In competing for trade between that
harbor and Portland, as he has
launched the gasoline schooner Ahawa
needa, a vessel that will carry about
SO tons. She is 65 feet long, has a
beam of 20 feet and Is to draw about
nine feet. Two gas engines will fur
nish power for twin screws and she Is
expected to make her first voyage early
The coming of the Ahawaneeda Is
said to mean that the commercial in
terests of Newport . have decided to
favor her with business, which will
naturally curtail shipments that have
been handled by the gasoline schooners
Anvil and Patsy. During the Summer
business is brisk to Newport, owing to
the large vacation throng that hies
there annually, but In Winter it ranks
with other small Coast harbors and
buys lightly. The Anvil makes ports
as far south as Baudon, as does the
Patsy, but the latter does not carry
passengers. To force the Anvil away
from Yaquina in Summer may result
In a little rate war and might also se
riously Interfere with her going there
In Winter, when only the larger gaso
line carriers can be used.
CHARLESTON' TO GET SALMON
American-Hawaiian Will Call There
for Coast Shippers.
Pacific Coast shippers handling
canned salmon are to combine so they
may assign sufficient business for one
or two steamers of the American-Hawaiian
fleet to -warrant them making
calls at Charleston this season. The
steamship company has demanded that
at least 1000 tons be provided for each
trip and it is possible that two steam
ers of the fleet on the Atlantic side
will be ordered to proceed there on
the way from the south to New York
with Pacific cargo.
Instances have been known in which
salmon from Oregon and Washington
was shipped on those vessels to New
York and then routed by rail south to
Charleston, but the cannerymen hope
to eliminate the rail charges each Fall
by combining their shipments. No ad
vires have been received by Agent Ken
nedy, of the American-Hawaiian here,
that the company will operate regularly
BRIDGE TIME BALL WANTED
Change of Site Is Again Bcins Dis
cussed on Waterfront.
Since the Harrlman bridge has been
completed and thrown open to the pub
lic masters of coastwise and deepwater
vessels returning to the harbor have
revived the campaign for the. establish
ment of a time ball on one of the bridge
towers. The site is viewed a4 the most
desirable In the city, as the time ball
is intended primarily for the guidance
of mariners, and If placed on the bridge
tower could be discerned from any
berth in the harbor.
Captain Mason, of the steamer Beaver,
who was the first to suggest publicly
that the time ball be located there, said
yesterday that it might be necessary
for those interested to petition the
Hydrographic Office. It is not felt that
anv Government employe would recom
mend against the ball being erected
cherc, and an effort probably will be

BLACK GOAT CHOICE
Dr. Brougher Decides Not to
Preach in "Cream" Suit.
TWO SERMONS TOMORROW
"Life and High Society'' and "How
to Keep Young and Happy" Are
Themes Chosen by Former
White Temple Pastor.
While Dr. J. Whitcomb Brougher, of
the Temple Baptist Church, Los An
geles, preaches to his congregation
there in an ice cream suit during the
Summer months, he thinks that "
Portland's rainy weather continues, he
would "look like a daisy In a snow
bank" should he appear in the White
Temple pulpit thus attired. Hence he
has decided upon the usual black frock
coat of the minister.
Dr. Brougher will preach at the
White Temple Sunday morning on
"Life and High Society," and at night
on "How. to Keep Young and Happy."
Miss Alice Juston will sing at night.
The former pastor of the White
Temple will pass two weeks with his
family at Gearhart. He will start for
Los Angeles two weeks from next Mon
dav. He has announced his intention of
going on a lecture tour of two months
in the East next Summer. ale will
deliver 40 lectures at Chautauquas, for
which he will receive $2000 from the
Lvceum Bureau. He was offered $10,
000 for 200 lectures on as many nights,
but says he does not wish to give up
his pastoral work In Los Angeles. The
Auditorium, where his congregation
meets, seats 3500. and is crowded every
Sunday morning. Sunday nights many
are turned away. .
Dr. Brougher says Los Angeles is
the cleanest city morally of any city
of Its size on the Coast. The saloons.
moving-picture shows and theaters are
well regulated, and there Is no- re
stricted districrhe says. The Los An
geles Chamber of Commerce, Admen's
League, Kotary ciuo, municipal wuu
and Ministerial Association count Dr.
Brougher as a member.
"I am more than lellghtei witn tne
prosperity of the White Temple under
the administration of Dr. Hinson," he
said yesterday, after coming in from
Gearhart, "He has proved himself to
be the right man In the right place,
and has the reputation of being the
greatest Baptist preacher on the Pa
cific Coast. ' I appreciate the courtesy
he has extended in inviting me to
preach on Sunday."
