Yantz caught for New Orleans and
Birmingham in the Southern League
for several seasons, 'tis said, and is
needed by McCredie mainly because he
is a right-handed batter. Fisher and
Haworth both are left-hand swingers.
Gardner is a Portland boy and tried
to arrange a transfer from St. Paul to

From the meager reports at hand, it

CRAFT MOVED BY CURRENT
Lifesavers Get First Kest Since
Called, After Being Summoned to
Schooner on False Alarm and
. Finding Crew Gone.
FLORENCE, Or., May L (Special.)
The schooner Hogan, ashore on a
sand spit Inside the harbor entrance,
has two cables from her bow across Siu
slaw channel to the north Jetty and it
is hoped that the tightening ' of the
cables when the tide rises will pull her
off. The current which started to
move the vessel yesterday shifted her
to a position between two jetties 75
yards inside the harbor entrance.
J. H. Porter, of Porter Bros., has
placed a man named Barney in charge
of getting the vessel off. A gang of
men was busy today throwing off lum
ber into the river.
The Yaquina lifesaving crew did not
leave today owing to the heavy sea on
the bar and the strong northwesf wind.
Last night they got their first rest
since being called to the Hogan. They
retired at 1 o'clock, after having
answered a false alarm brought to
Florence by a launch that the crew of
the Hogan needed them.
The Umpqua lifesavers also were
called. The two crews hoisted their
cannon and beach apparatus 20 feet and
placed it on a pushcar and started out
in the darkness against a driving
northwest wind. After going a quarter
of a mile they were halted and fold
that their call was a false alarm, as
ail on board the Hogan had gone ashore
in their own boat almost exhausted
Crewa Trudge Back.
The lifesavers trudged back with

The lifesavers here are: Umpqua

George Flonecker, Fred Schulty and
Frank Varrelan. and the Yaquina Bay

The Hogan mascot, a cat, was taken
off today much against its will and
put on board the Roscoe.
The Elmore schooner Patsy tried to
leave this afternoon but could not pass
the cables from the Hogan. Captain
Harry Valbush, master of the Patsy,
told the wreckers that they must either
slack the cable and let the Patsy pass
or pay the owners of the Patsy for the
time she loses staying in Florence.
Mate Telia Experience.
Second Mate Simon gave the follow
inw account of what happened -aboard
the Hogan: "We left in tow of the
Roscoe, but a heavy southwest wind
and the surf drove both towards shore
so the Roscoe cut us loose to save
herself. When water commenced com
ing over the ship, which carjied- a
deckload of lumber, I lashed two pil
lows in the rigging and was going to
lash my wife. The women were in the
galley until the water was waist deep.
We took them to the poopdeck and the
water rose flush with us, but no higher.
"We were glad to get off the boat
last night, as it looked like we would
drift up on the end of the South jetty
and get drowned.
"All we had to eat was two cups of
coffee yesterday, everything being
ruined by the water."
