LAST CARGO SHIP IN PORT
Pierre Antonlne Brings German
Cargo Assembled at Antwerp.
Last of the sailing fleet bound, here
with general cargo from Europe, the
French bark Pierre Antonine, a carrier
that is no stranger in these waters,
towed into the Columbia River yes
terday and completed a rattling good
passage of 139 days from Antwerp. She
Is consigned to Meyer, Wilson & Com
pany and has 3050 tonjof freight, con
sisting of 1300 tons of structural steel,
200 tons of potash salts, 1150 tons of
coke, 100 tons of rocs: salts and 300
tons of ptgiron. Most of the cargo
originated in Germany and was assem
bled at Antwerp.
The Pierre Antonine was not looked
for until December and her arrival
yesterday occasioned some surprise.
All dispatches of sailing vesseLs from
the war zone with Pacific Coast cargo
has ceased for the present, though
some stuff is moving In steamers, but
none from German, Belgian or French
ports this, way. The vessel loads
grain outward under charter to the

VESSELS TO CARRY STORM Olli
Lifeboat Sea Drags to Prevent Cap
sizing Are Ordered, Too.
American vessels of 200 gross tons
and more, plying in the coastwise and
off-shore trade, are required to be
equipped immediately with storm oil
tanks, fore and aft, capable of con
taining prescribed quantities of oil,
with pipes leading from them to each
side of the ship. Vessels of 150 gross
tons and over must have lifeboats
equiped Avith sea drags or sea anchors
and oil bags, so as to reduce danger
of capsizing in heavy seas.
United States Inspectors Edwards
and Fuller are enforcing the new
regulations on all vessels in this dis
trict coming within the requirements.
The regulations prescribe that the oil
tanks must be kept filled and the con
tents used: when "necessary to calm'
seas. The size of the tanks and amount
of oil to be carried is governed by
the tonnage of the vessel and In the
case of the Bear and Beaver, of tfce
"Big Three" fleet; tanks hojding 2500
gallons must be installed. On vessels
of that fleet measurements have been
made and tanks are to be Installed at
once. The regulations also prescribe
that on ocean steamers tailshafts must
be drawn for inspection at least once
every two years. ,

FRENCH BARK BUFFETED

ANTOXIXE HAS ACCIDENT.
Anchors and Cbaln Lost and Some
Damage . Done In Collision With
Llshthonse Plllnn- War Is Nevrs.
ASTORIA. Or, Nov. 19. (Special)
The French bark Pierre Antonine.
which arrived today, 139 days from
Antwerp, got Into trouble almost Im
mediately after entering port and. Is
lying alongside the Fort Stevens'wharf,
having lost both her anchors and about
300 fathoms of chain. The bark was
towed In by the tug Oneonta with Cap
tain C. 13. Anderson as pilot. As two
other square-riggers were reported in
the" offing, the Pierre Antonine was
dropped in the lower he.rbor and the
tug headed for sea again. There was
a strong flood tide running and as the
anchors were thrown overboard, and'
the chain began to run out, the friction
failed to hold and the entire S00 fath
oms of chain went overboard.
The vessel continued to drift! With
the tide for a distance of 200 yards
and landed broadside on against the
Desdemona lighthouse, knocking - out
a few piling of the foundation and
doing damage that is estimated at
from $300 to $400. Two of the bark's
plates on the pert side were dented and
one of her davit3 was bent, otherwise
sne was not injured.
. Captain Astrup, of the -. Oneonta,
came to the rescue and towed her to
the Fort Stevens wharf. It is expected
the anchor and chain can be recovered.
Captain P. le Bras, master of the
Pierre Antonine, says he left Antwerp
July 3 and knew nothing about -war
having been declared until today. Ha
reports a rough trip.
No signs of any German cruisers w"ere
seen. The Pierre Antonine brings a
full general cargo consigned to Meyer,
Wilson & Co., and Is chartered to the
Portland Flour Mills to load grain.

TRUCK ARGUMENTS HEARD
Council Listens to Talks Made by
Agents of Concerns.
Oratory reigned in the City Council
chamber yesterday afternoon, when the
Council met to hear the arguments of
various concerns that have submitted
bids to the .city for the furnianinsr of
a city service truck and a choraical
truck for the fire bureau. Each repre
sentative was allowed 10 minutes in
which to tell his story. Mayor Albee
fixed his alarm watch so that the bell
rang at the end of each period. The
device- proved an effective safeguard.
The two machines to be purohaaed
will cost between $12,000 and $13.00.
It is proposed to put them In service as
soon as -possible.
After hearing the fine points of the
various makes of machines explained
the Council took the bids under ad

FOOD SOURING IN
'Pape's Diapepsin" Ends All
Stomach Distress in- Five
Wonder what upset your stomach
which portion of the food did the dam
agedo you? Well, don't bother. If
your stomach is in a revolt; if sour,
gassy and upset, and what you just
ate has fermented Into stubborn lumps;
head dizzy and aches; belch gases and
acids and eructate undigested food;
breath foul, tongue coated just take
a little Pape's Diapepsin and in five
minutes you wonder vhat became of
the indigestion and distress.
Millions of men and women today
know that it is needless to have a bad
stomach. A little Diapepsin occasion
ally keeps this delicate organ regu
lated and they eat their favorite foods
without fear. -
If your stomach doesn't take care of
your liberal limit without rebellion:
if your food is a damage instead of a
help, remember, the quickest, surest.
most harmless relief is Pape's Diapep
sin, which costs only fifty cents for a
large case at drug stores. It's truly
wonderful It digests food and sets
things straight, so gently and easily
that it is really astonishing. - Please,
for your sake, don't go on and on with
a weak, disordered stomach; it's so un
necessary. Adv. -.
the Hubbard , Steamship Company,
which began in United States District
Court before Judge Bean yesterday.
The owners of the Portland charge that
the collision was due to the General
Hubbard's failure to display lights, and
ask that the General Hubbard be sold
to satisfy their claim.

Succumb t3 Anti-Kamnia Tablets
This tronble commonly called "sick head
acheV" is said to be due to the retention of
urea In the system. Often it is stated that
a poor condition of the blood is a cause of
these headaches, or that 16 is. a nervous
condition; and in certain cases, no doubt
this is true.
Where treatment Is demanded. It is mora
for the pain than anything else, and Dr.
A. F. Bchellscbmidt of Louisville, has
found Antl-kamnia Tablets to give prompt
and satisfactory relief. "Rest should be
insisted upon" he says, "and the patient
should go to bed, darken the room, and all
the attendants and family should be as
quiet as possible. An emetic will some
times shorten the attack. The bowels should
be kept open with "Actoids";- a hot bath and
a thorough rub-down with a coarse towel,
often give grateful relief. Two Antl-kamnia
Tablets when the first signs appear will
usually prevent the attack. , During an at
tack, one tablet every hour or two wil'
shorten the attack and relieve the usual
nausea and vomiting." These tablets ma
be obtained at all druggists. AsklorA-K
Tablets. They are also unexcelled for ner
vous headaches, neuralgia and all pains.
