Addison Bennett Says Trip to Alaska
Interesting From Many View
points One Woman Aboard
Out of 71 Passengers.
BY ADDISON' BENNETT.
ON BOAJtD STEAMER STETSON,
March SO. (Staff Correspondence.)
The staunch steamer, J. B. Stetson, Is
t now sailing merrily along in smooth
water through the Straits of Fuca. We
have just passed the City of Victoria,
off to the north ,and will soon turn
around, the southern end of Vancouver
Island and head to the northwest to
ward Nanaimo, where we expect to ar
rive about 7 o'clock this evening, to
take 250 tons of coal for Ketchikan.
Before sailing from Portland, which
port we left at 2:40 Sunday morning,
March 29, I was given by various, sun
dry and numerous friends, various, sun
dry and numerous recipes to guard
against mal de mer, called in the ver
nacular sea-sickness. The one that ap
pealed the strongest to me was that
calling for the eating of oysters in
large quantities, the small Olympia
oysters said to be the most efficacious.
to on Saturday I filled, gorged and
overload my stomach with these
choice edible;. I was by no one told
just the right number to eat. so I ate
plentifully and abundantly, ate all my
stomach would hold. And I felt good.
I felt as if I could cross a. dozen bars
and still keep my feet and the oys
ters. Lesson Learned at Astoria.
I know better now. I began to learn
better as soon as we reached the bar,
about 12 hours after-leaving Portland,
for we were delayed a few hours at
Astoria in taking on oil for the trip.
MO sooner had we struck the first great
T'av at the bar than I began to feel
en insecurity in my stomach. Not a
aickness far from it. Simply an ap
peal from those oysters to regain their
liberty. I clutched the railing which
runs around the balcony of the Stet
son and looked downwards towards
the fishes: I still clutched and looked
aloft towards the gulls circling close
I knew, instinctively knew, that the

Wire of. Salesman, Formerly Resi

Where She lilves.
PENDLETON. Or., April 1. (Special.)
Mrs. Emery Newberry, the pretty
young wife of a traveling salesman,
who made Pendleton his headquarters
for two years, was held a prisoner In
her chair for two hours by an armed
criminal who posed as a detective, ac
cording to a letter received today from
Mrs. Newberry, who is at Oakland. Cal.
The experience occurred at Oakland,
to which city Mr. and Mrs. Newberry
recently went from here.
In many respects the experience of
Mrs. Newberry was similar to that of
Mrs. Smith In Portland about February
1. Both men represented themselves as
detectives, who came to arrest an ab
sent husband. Both took jewelry as a
bond to keep the husband out of Jail.
Mrs. Newberry says the man was well
dressed. He was told Mr. Newberry
was away and would not return for
three hours, whereupon he. announced
he would remain until Mr. Newberry re
turned. When told that was impossi
ble, he replied he was armed and would
do anything he pleased. He also dared
the woman to make a noise or leave her

I had the baby in my arms and asked
his mercy by referring to the baby and
awakened a spark of manhood, perhaps.
He considered and gave me his word, he
would not make trouble for me.
"He demanded my getting him money
or jewelry amounting to tlOO, which he
pretended was bond to keep Mr. New
berry from jail. I was forced to give
him Mr. Newberry's watch, my mother's
watch and $5. which he said would
amount to 100.
To make a long story short, when
the police inspector came, he had a pic
ture of the same man. He Is wanted
for every crime imaginable."
