his family, who have gone to Bull Run

party to Silverton will return today.
The next party shortly will leave for

give a grand vacation to a little child
it is hard to realize what a world of
good that little donation will do.
Interesting information Is found In
the letters written by the little folks
who are enjoying the outing at Silver

writes: "I am with Miss Lonbakker. She

RIVER LEAP FATAL
Man Jumps From Deck of
GRAPPLER RECOVERS BODY
L. Lau, of Salt Lake, Is Believed to
Hate Been Intoxicated or Un
balanced "Movies' Become
Popular on Ocean. ;
Jumping from the deck of the San
Francisco & Portland liner Bear shortly
after she had passed through the
Broadway bridge yesterday, bound for
California ports, a steerage passenger
named L. Lau, of Salt Lake, was
drowned. Captain Nopander, master of
the Bear, telegraphed from Astoria, in
response to a query from here, that he
was not aware that a man had been
lost until the ship passed the flour mill.
Passengers who had seen the man leap
did not report it until then.
Men standing on Columbia dock No.
1 when the Bear passed sent word of
the accident to the harbor patrol sta
tion and in an hour after being noti
fied Hugh Brady, municipal grappler,
recovered the body. Lau was arrayed
in an undershirt, trousers and socks
and a 10-cent piece was found in one
pocket. His effects were ordered re
turned from Astoria. Those on shore
who saw the man leap said that he
sprang from the forecastle. There was
talk on the dock after the steamer
sailed that a steerage passenger had
said he had been warned not to pro
ceed further on the ship than the
Broadway bridge, and it was assumed
that the man was intoxicated or un
balanced. The Bear had S53 passengers aboard,
and while every first-class accommo
dation had been sold she carried an
unusually large steerage list for this
season. There were about 25 Hindus,
who are bound for home as part of a
small army that Is said to be leaving
the United States for the land of their
Captain Rankin brought the steamer
Rose City into port at i P. 3d. yester
day, following a smooth voyage from
Los Angeles and San Francisco. The
steamer, was .crowded .to capacity. From
Los Angeles to the Golden Gate Bud
Anderson, the Medford pugilist, was a
passenger, having traveled that far on
his way to- Medford, after undergoing
an operation for appendicitis. Captain
Rankin says that the moving-picture
attraction is. so - great that on the
southbound voyage the owner of a ma
chine exhibited it two nights and the
saloon was jammed to the doors. He
thinks that one of the next steps in
the Coast trade will be the introduc
tion of "movies" as features of the. trip.
HOO HOO CAROUSAL SERIOTJS
Captain AValker's License Revoked
' by Federal Inspectors.
Captain Charles K. Walker, master
of the steamer Hoo Hoo, has had his
license revoked by United States-Inspectors
Edwards and Fuller as a re
sult of an investigation and trial' con
cerning the. finding of a women aboard
the steamer Sunday, July 27, In an In
toxicated condition and almost nude.
Captain Walker formally, was charged
wtih intoxication and misconduct and
the inspectors found him guilty.
George F. Tucker, engineer of -the
Hoo Hoo, also accused of misconduct,
was exonerated. He testified to the sat
isfaction of the inspectors that he had
left the steamer the night of July 26.
after a trip to Ross Island that had
been made at the instance of the wo
man and a companion, whom she said
was her husband. The latter left ier
on the steamer the following morning,
it was testified. Charles Grisim, a pa
trolman in the harbor patrol service,
and Clarence Gilliland, engineer of the
patrol launch, who took the woman
from the Hoo Hoo, were the principal
SIX WOMEN MISS BAGGAGE
One Makes Hit Through' Resigning
Expressmen who agreed to ' deliver
trunks and suitcases belonging to six
women who Intended sailing on the
steamer Bear for California yester
day and then failed to have them on
hand, thereby preventing the fair pas
sengers from embarking, undoubtedly
suffer from burning ears, for they were
"roasted" to a crisp brown by the in
dignant travelers. One expressman had
the temerity to send the traveling bags
with another man, but fortunately his
late arrival at the dock saved an ar
raignment, for the women had depart
ed uptown. -
The Bear was held until about 9:20

and headed down stream. One woman

ship officers because of the philoso

her - disappointment, and they agreed
it was -about the first case on record

TRAXS-PACrFIC RATES FIXED
Steamship Lines Advance Tarif I $ 1
a Ton on Cereals.
Under a compromise effected between
steamship interests operating, from
Portland and Puget Sound to Oriental
ports and Manila, - rates on flour and
wheat will be' advanced August 16 so
as to range ?1 higher, instead of J1.50,
as had been expected. The tariff to
Japan will be 4 instead of J3, as at
present, and 5 to Hongkong instead
of $4. while J5.50 will be charged to
Shanghai and Manila Instead of J4.50.
When the rates were lowered in the
Spring as a means of attracting busi
ness it was accepted by shippers that
they would be restored this month to
that basis, or, in other words, advanced
1.50. Shippers protested on the ground
that the charges would be too high as
compared with the existing market con
ditions, ' so the compromise was sanc
tioned. ( Oriental buyers are said to
have been holding off pending an ad
justment of the rate matter, and it is
thought that considerable business will
be placed as a result of the decision.
CHINOOK OX RIGHT COURSE
Pilot : Nolan Says Road for Large
Vessels Is Being Aided.
In operating the Government dredge
Chinook on the Columbia River bar
Captain Moreno 1s "working along lines
that are entirely satisfactory to the
pilots, according 'to Captain Nolan, of
the Port of Portland bar crew, who says
that the Chinook has been held stead
ily on. a course south southwest, which
is the direction selected in' handling
large vessels that are "rolled", out.
The general direction of the best
water, as shown in the annual surrey,
was southwest and that course is used
by the masters of coasters making the
river frequently. Captain . Nolan says
that soundings made recently . show
good water at half tide over the en
tire channel. While no opportunity has
been given for accurately gauging
what the Chinook has accomplished in
deepening the road, the "crust" of the
bar has been so broken that the Chi
