Three other whose names are un
known. Vessel Breaks Into Splinters.
The Hanalei broke Into splinters
early today, after pounding on the reef
nearly 24 hours. Some of the frag
ments washed far enough Inshore to
enable those clinging to them to make
a fight for their lives. The ordinary
apparatus of lifesaving was powerless
against distance, fog and a breaking
sea. Among those washed ashore un
aided were Mrs. Ethel Ferguson- and
her son Harold, 8 years old, of Windsor,
OH from the fuel tanks of the
smashed ship coated the sea and made
limy the rocks of the bei.cn, adding to
the difficulties of the rescuers.
Life Savers Venture Far.
The life savers ventured far out Into
the water to help ashore all within
reach and, as daylight came, they could
see numbers of naif-drowned men float
ing not far from shore.
On one large piece of wreckage four
men were seen floating.
Captain Nelson ordered the big mortar-taken
to the beach and a lino was
hot across their Improvised raft. The
men were brougnt ashore with diffi
culty, as they were suffering severely
from their night in the water and one
of their number. First Officer Thomas
McTeague, was so badly injured that
be may not live.
Women Hear Another Cry In Vain.
Four women clung to the floating
pilothouse of the Hanalei after she
broke up and listened to the heart
rending cries for help from another
who had been one of their party on the
trip down from Eureka.
All the fear of death that was reach
ing out and pulling her down was in
the cries of Jean Scott as she struggled
and pleaded for help, but the sobs of
her frantic and helpless companions
were the only answer. Gradually the
cries became weaker and weaker and
then, somewhere In the darkness, al
most within hands' reach, were si
"When the boat began to break up
we tried to stay together as much as
possible," said Miss Rose Kaufman, of
536 Second avenue, San Francisco,
"and we all managed to get together
on the same piece of wreckage.
Wave Tears Victim Away.
"Then one unusually big wave struck
ns and knocked nearly all of us off,
but all excepting Jean succeeded in
getting back on the wreckage again.
She clung desperately to the edge and
we tried to help her, but to no purpose.
"'Hold on," I told her. It Is only a
matter of time until we will all be
saved.' But she was terribly fright
ened and I think this weakened her.
Another wave broke over us and tore
her away. She cried so piteousjy for
helt). it was awful, out no one could do
anything. Every one had to fight for
herself, and finally we heard her cries
Miss Kaufman sustained numerous
bruises, for" which she was treated at
the Harbor Emergency Hospital.
Babe Lost Alter Straggle.
How a mother and another woman
struggled tbrough the long black hours
of night against the cruel might of
thundering breakers to save the tiny
life of a baby boy, only to be beaten,
Is another of the many graphic and
eupertragic stories brought to shore by
Mrs. Valentine Franz. Jr., was the
mother who lost the child and Miss
Celina La Rue was the woman who
fought the losing fight with the mother
to save the child s lire, tsoth women
were among those rescued.
Miss La Rue said- "Drifting with
her baby in her arms, a huge piece of
wreckage struck the mother and she
became uncoisciousbut she held out
the child to me instinctively as she felt
her grasp failing. I took the little
fellow In my arms and fought to save
us both. Suddenly something struck
me, and L too. began to feel myself
Child Slips From Grasp.
"My last remembrance Is of seeing
Mrs. Franz grasp the child's clothing
with her teeth Just as the baby was
slipping from the wreckage on which
we were floating. My memory Is a
blank, for an endless series of waves
struck me and buffeted me around until
I couldn't tell whether I was conscious
"When next I saw the mother she
was on the McCulloch, but her baby
A pathetic Incident attended the Iden
tification of I C. Merritt, the Eureka
dock agent, the eldest of whose four
children Is a son, aged 16.
Among the drowned man's effects
were found six cartoons drawn by the
son and showing evidence of fine
draughtsmanship. In his pride at his
boy's skill, the father had brought the
drawings with him.
Oiler Saves Two Live.
As for J. Kennedy, the oiler, Wire
less Operator Lovejoy said today that
he had sailed under an alias from San
Francisco. though his home was at
Astoria. Kennedy saved two lives, the
last probably at the cost of his own.
According to eye witnesses, he swam
to a raft after the Hanalei had broken
up, only to let go his hold, as he saw
a woman struggling nearby In the
water, and swim back with her to the
slender support that meant life.
Though he saved the drowning wom
an, he paid the last penalty for his
heroism. Weakened by this and his
other effort, the gallant fireman could
cling no longer to the raft, but bidding
the woman whose life he had saved
farewell and godspeed, dropped back
Into the swirling waters and sank
SURVIVORS ARE CARED FOR
Captain Says There Was No Excite
ment in Trying Hoars.
BOLTNAS, CaL, Nov. 24. Survivors of
the wrecked steamer Hanalei. their
faces blackened by the oil-strewn
waters enclosing Durbury Reef, spent
the greater part of the day here today
recuperating from their terrible expe
riences of the last 18 hours. Of those
whom the Marconi Company officials
cared for In the dormitory of the big
wireless station, two were women and
one was a boy of 8. The latter was
Harold Turkenson, who won life and
safety by a thrilling ride through the
surf astride a spar when the stricken
ship slipped from the reef at 4 o'clock
Two of the survivors were so seri
ously hurt that they were removed to
a San Rafael hospital. C. O. Blincoe,
of Visalla, a passenger, fractured his
right leg when it was caught between
timbers, at the time the Hanalei slid
into deep water.
Thomas McTeague. first mate, was
badly Injured late Monday night when
the Hanalei's life gun exploded. He
suffered internal Injuries. Almost
crazed with pain, McTeague battled
his way to the beach early today.
strewn over the dormitory railings
and hanging from windows were the
sodden clothes of the wreck victims,
while the victims themselves sat in
chairs enveloped In blanketu or lay
asleep on cots ana mattresses.
There were no complaints and no
criticism. The wrecked nerves of the
men demanded tobacco, and this was
the first question asked of each new
arrival: "Have you anything to
High up on the beach, beyond reach
of the weaves, rested the bodies of
Mrs. M. E. Cottrell, of Eureka, and J. A.
Hutchinson, of Sacramento. After a
hasty inquest by Coroner A. E. Sawyer,
of San Rafael, both bodies were re
moved. A member of the Hanalei's crew was
chance companion of Hutchinson
when the hour came for all to care for
themselves. Both met in the broiling
sea and climbed onto a hatch cover.
A moment later Hutchinson relaxed his
hold and slipped back into the sea.
He did not appear again until his body
was found wedged in a mass of wreck
Mrs. Turkenson and her son Harold
were on their way from Eureka to
their home In Windsor, Sonoma County.
Mother and boy were constant com
panions on deck from the moment the
Hanalei struck. They separated only
when the waves threw them apart at
the last. Harold was badly cut about
the face In his struggles among the
floating debris. When dragged ashore
he asked for his mother, and was as
sured of her safety. Mrs. Turkenson
was aided by members of the Hanalei's
crew to hold her place on floating tim
bers and she reached shore in an ex
hausted condition. She and her boy
were sent immediately to San Fran
cisco. One of the early arrivals at Bolinas
this morning was Val Franz. Jr., a San
b rancisco contractor, whose- wife and
11-months old son were passengers on
the Hanalei. He was told that both
had been lost. Later came the report
from San Francisco that Mrs. Franz
had been picked up alive by the Fort
Point lliesaving crew, but that the
baby was missing. Mrs. Franz was
taken to San Francisco.
Captain James J. Carey, master of
the Hanalei, was perhaps- the most self
contained of all the survivors here.
"Through all the trying hours." he
said, "there was no excitement. A
sense of helplessness seemed to per-
vaoe tne snip and this condition pro
duced resignation rather than hysteria.
Ail acted splendidly."
Tons of flotsam are piled high upon
the shore and safe at last in a shel
tered cove 300 yards from the Jagged
ledge where, "she struck Monday noon.

LINN AND BENTON INSTRUCTORS IN
SESSION AT CORVALL1S.
Various Departments of Agricultural
Institution Ispected and Topical
Addresses Are Heard.
CORVALLIS, Or., Nov. 24. Between
300 and 400 teachers from Linn and
Benton Counties attending the Joint in
stitute visited the Oregon Agricultural
College today. A halt In the Institute
was taken at 10 o'clock so that the
teachers might have an opportunity of
seeing the pouring of metal . at the
student foundry, the handling of the
lathes In the machine shops, the basket
weaving and other work done In the
domestic art department, and the drill
of the Cadet regiment. The Corvallls

Addresses by President Campbell, of
the University of Oregon, and Dr. W. J,
Kerr, president of Oregon Agricultural
College, were part of the day's pro
gramme. Dr. Kerr, In his address on
the new movement In education, de
clared that the objective is such read
justment and adaptation of school work
that it will be of the greatest value in
training all the children of all the peo
pie for the kind of life, economic and
social, which they are to lead, when
they leave school.
Referring to the question of " the
length of the school period. President
Kerr declared that such period should
be reduced by at least two yeaYs. He
referred to the report of Dr. Dana, in
which it is shown that In America the
school year ranges from 30 to 40 weeks,
with an average of about 1000 hours,
while in Germany, France and England
the school year covers a period of from
45 to 46 weeks, with an average of
about X500 hours. ' .

LUMBER TRADE HAS
Demand at San Francisco Is
Better, Spurring Markets
. Here to More Activity.
FOUR CARRIERS TAKEN
Ships Engaged for Cargoes to West
Coast Orders for Far East
Yards Are Few Since
Building Is Slackened.
San Francisco lumber firms report
an enlivened demand for offshore car
goes, and while tne condition 1b not
expected to continue. It serves. In a
measure, to offset the sluggish condi
tions that have prevailed since early In
September, when the effect of the war
generally was felt in exporting circles.
Four lumber engagements were made
last week, the steamer Olson & Mahony
having been fixed at San- Francisco at
private terms to load for the West
Coast; the steamer Columbia, the lat
ter being taken by W. R. Grace & Co-
while the schooner William Olson was
taken to load on Puget Sound for the
West Coast and the schooner William
H. Smith from the Columbia River for
Auckland, the two sailers being en
gaged at 47s 6d.
Samoena Destined for England,
Business so far this week consists of
the charter of the Russian ship Samo
ena to load at a North Pacific port for
Englandat 78s 9d.
The British steamer Strathgarry has
been substituted for the Straendrick
to load lumber for Davies & Fehon for
Australia, part of which cargo Is to be
assembled at Eureka and the remain
der either on the Columbia River or In
the north. The same firm has the
Strathalrly, which hails from Honolulu,
and after taking on 600,000 feet at
VVestport finishes at the Eastern &
Western mill with 3.000,000 feet, the
cargo to be dispatched for Australia.
There is no change reported in the
Oriental lumber market. Advices from
there are that all public work in China
has been stopped and money is tight
for private purposes, so lumber yards
are not increasing stocks, with no pros
pect that the demand will be enlivened.
Aiamutan Only for Far East.
The Japanese tramp Azumusan Maru
is working the last of her lumber cargo
at Wauna for Shanghai and she is tne
only large carrier here loading for the
far East. The Asama Maru was dis
patched over a week ago for the same
territory, and there is little prospect
of more steamers being sent in that
direction this year.
In all quarters future business Is de
clared to depend on the end of the war.
for while there may be a few cargoes
of lumber sent to England meanwhile,
the big rush is looked for when hos
tilities have ceased and the French and
Belgian territory has recovered In a
measure from the effects.
In domestic business, it Is predicted
that business will improve after 1915
is ushered In, particularly in the de
mand from the Atlantic Coast. Since
building at the San Francisco and San
Diego fairs have reached a stage that
little more material is required to com
plete various structures, the present
volume of lumber shipments probably
will remain unchanged during the
ALASKAN COMMERCE COURTED
Chamber Sends Letter Promising
Better Service Next Year.
Expressing the friendliest wishes
from the business men of Portland to
those of Alaska, the Portland Chamber
of Commerce has issued a letter to be
sent to all of the Alaska patrons of
the steamship line which has operated
through the Summer out of Portland
to Alaska and which now has suspend
ed for the Winter.
The letter, which promises Increase
and improvement of the service for
another year and bespeaks a greater '
effort to extend the scope of trade be
tween Portland and Alaska, follows:
Gentlemen Portland takes this opportun
ity to thank you in most cordial spirit for
the support given our opening trade effort
in Alaska. For all this Portland is deeply
gratetul, and the chamber la glad to an
nounce that we will concentrate our efforts
upon proving the community entirely worthy
of your confidence.
When we decided to enter Alaska again,
on a permanent basis, we recognized that
we would have to bear losses at the incep
tion of the effort. It was deemed best for
the first year of this effort, which wou.d
be largely educational, for both Portland
and Alaska, to launch the enterprise in a
Assurance was given by practically al.
your merchants that a most important in
crease in the share of business to be sent
Portland would result Immediately from
use of larger craft, with better handling fa
cilities. This assurance is the key-note of
our effort for the coming year. Your goods
will be better handled, given better dispatch
and delivered with a regularity that will
make the. filling of orders a comfortable
We were told at the beginning that Alas
kans wanted competition and that they
believed Portland could give that. You have
had evidence of this fact the present season,
handicapped as our merchants were. Every
commanlty has distinctive advantages in
certain products, and we claim Portland has
more of these than any other of tne North
west. We beg to remain your business friends,
committed to a larger and better trade to
and from Alaska, in which there will be
mutual advantage. Sincerely yours,
A H. AVERILL, President.

Isthmian and Santa Cruz at San
Francisco En Route for Portland.
Captain J. W. Jory is master of the
American-Hawaiian liner Nevadan now,
having been given command at San
Francisco Saturday and sailed with the
steamer Sunday for New York, reliev
ing Captain Anderson.' Captain Jory
was chief officer on the liner Hono
lulan , when she plied between San
Francisco and the Hawaiians under
charter to the Matson Navigation Com
pany, which service she left Just before
the canal was opened. The Honolulan
also got away from the Golden Gate
Sunday with passengers and cargo for
the East Coast.
The Isthmian is to sail from San
Francisco today for Portland with
cargo loaded at New York, as well as
some brought from there by the Ne
vadan, the latter having been turned
back because she lost time. The Grace
liner Santa Cruz reached the Golden
Gate Monday from New York and will
be here this week.
ECCXESIA GOES FOR ORDERS
Oweenee Reaches Llnnton and Fal
kirk Is to Leave for Sea Today.
Laden to capacity with flour and
wheat, the British steamer Ecclesia was
cleared yesterday for orders and it is
understood she will probably go to a
French port to discharge. She carries
about 3000 tons of flour and 2500 tons
of wheat. The British bark Falkirk,
fully laden for the United Kingdom,
leaves down today In tow of the ateam-
er Ocklahama. i
The British bark Oweenee arrived up !
yesterday and was berthed at Llnnton
to discharge ballast. With the Cortez :
and Bolgen she will be shifted Into the
harbor next week, all to work grain
for the United Kingdom. The en route
fleet was added to yesterday with the
charter of the Russian bark Professor
Koch, which will come here from Mel
bourne. The Crown of India, which
reached the river Saturday, was taken,
and. as her owners asked 40 shillings
and offers under that sum were re
fused, it is supposed that she was fixed
at that rate. There is said to be little
tonnage offering at London for North
west loading and there are no sailers
nearby that have not been taken.
TWO CONTRACTS UP TODAY
Electric, Track and Roadway Work
Starts at New Municipal Dock.
Bids are to be opened this morning
at the office of the Commission of Pub
lic Docks for wiring the first ware
house built by that body in the rear
of Municipal Dock No. 1. also for com
pleting the laying of railroad tracka
on the property and constructing a
plank roadway from Front street to the
center of the dock, which also serves
the warehouse. The tenders will be
assembled so that a comprehensive re
port can be made by G. B. Hegardt.
engineer of the Commission, and sub
mitted at a meeting to be held Friday.
The dock is being well cleared of
cargo with which It was piled last
week, and there will be more than
enough space for the cargo of the
Grace liner Santa Cruz, which is due
Friday from New York with about 2000
tons. The war abroad having caused
certain steamship plans to be deferred,
no new applications have been received
for dock space, which is not discourag
ing to the Commission, as It Is hoped
to accommodate only a limited number
until the slip and pier are ready and the
entire dock in shape to be thrown open.
KATANGA HELD AT. GtJAXMAS
Owners of Belgian Bark Not Heard
From Since Antwerp Was Lost.
What is to become of the Belgian
bark Katanga, reported at Guaymas
since September 17, is of concern to
the Portland Flouring Mills Company,
as that firm has the ship under charter
and she should be well up the Coast
ere this in order to safeguard her char
ter, yet nothing has been heard offi
cially from the ship or her owners
since before the fall of Antwerp.
Her owners reside at the captured
city, and It is not known whether they
were among the killed in the onslaught
of the Germans, have gone to the front
with others of the Belgian forces or
what not. Save that German ships
have been held In various ports since
the war opened, because of their fear
that hostile naval ships might capture
them, no vessels flying the flag of a
country at war have been absolutely
hampered by the strife except the
Katanga. For a time British ships were
held inside, and those that went to sea
on this Coast took every precaution,
while the German carriers all remained
in harbors they had reached previous
to the war.

Xew Ivanding of Diamond O Fleet
Adjoins Portland Shipyards.
Last of the dolphins ordered at the
new moorings of the Diamond O fleet,
adjoining the yard of the Portland
Shipbuilding Company on the south,
were driven yesterday and barges of
the line will be assembled there at once.
Since construction started on the new
trestle of the Southern Pacific on the
Bast Side, between the Burnside-street
and Steel bridges, the Diamond O and
Shaver fleets have been quartered at
different points along the West Side.
As soon as the Southern Pacific ac
cepts the improvements, it is under
stood that the Shaver fleet will return
there, mooring alongside, and perhaps
one or two barges may be held there
by the Diamond O for emergencies. The
harbor has been built up to such an
extent during the past year that fsw
desirable pieces of property are avail
able for barge moorings only at a con
siderable distance from the center of

TQNGS SIGN PEACE
Threat of Deportation Brings
Chinatown to Time.
SEVERAL MEETINGS HELD
Indemnity Demands Made by Op
posing Factions at First but Un
der. Pressure of Officers Dif
ferences Settled Amicably.
Peace settled over Chinatown yester
day, following a day of negotiations
between the Hop Sing and the Suey
Sing tongs. It was agreed between the
warring factions that by virtue of a
settlement wherein mutual concessions
were made, no more outbreaks of
shooting and stabbing affrays wi.'l take
place in this city.
The truce was enforced by threats
made by District Attorney Evans and
Sheriff Word. Deportation was the
whip held over the warring highbind
ers. Leaders of the two tongs were
summoned to the District Attorney's
office in the morning and a conference
held at which Mr. Evans declared that
if further outbreaks took place, whole
sale arrests of Chinese would be made
and all found to be without "choc
cheef." or certificates of legal resi
dence in this country, would be turned
over to the Immigration authorities of
the Government for deportation.
Hint of Trouble Comes.
Representatives of the tongs took
this hint home with them and medi
tated over it during the noon hour
yesterday. In .the early afternoon
Sheriff Word, hearing hints of com
Ins trouble, took alarge force of dep
uties and rounded up 120 Chinese found
at the local tong headquarters and
brought them to the County Jail for a
In the main corridor of the County
Jail, the tong men were grouped to
gether for a discussion of their differ
ences. Lee May Gin acted as official
interpreter. Said Chee and Moy Hani,
leaders of the Hop Sings, were present
with many supporters of that clan.
Wong Dong, peace delegate of the Hop
Sings from San Francisco, was also on
Leaders of the rival tong, the Suey
Sings, were Tung Choe and John Hook,
the latter being the delegate from
San Francisco. Local leaders and gun
men were present, keeping a wary
eye on the opposing camp, but in spite
of the feeling of hostility in the air
the highbinders got down to a dls
cusslon of their grievances and the
situation was considerably simplified.
Each tong was represented by at
torneys. Dan Powers appeared for the
Hop Sings and B. S. Pague for the
Suey Sings. The expulsion of Lum
Ting Ying from the Suey Sing tong
was demanded. This agent of one
branch of the highbinders is 'charged
with having stabbed Jim Wong, of the
Hop Sings, in the recent outbreak.
Expulsion Said to Mean Death.
This request did not appeal to the
Suey Singf. They allege that the tong
is a philanthropic organization to
which its members may look at all
times for protection and help. To ex
pel a member is to leave him at the
mercy of his enemies, and they believe
that such an one, cast adrift by a
tong to which he has been allied, would
meet swift death at the hands of the
District Attorney Evans declared the
tong wars must stop in Portland and
he was determined to do It even if he
had to ship every Chinaman in the city
back to his native land.
When the meeting adjourned the
tong leaders were given one hour to
come to a complete settlement of their
Sheriff Word and Deputy District
Attorney Ryan went with representa
tives of the two factions to the office
of Moy Back Hin, the Chinese Consul.
223 Second street, and a further parley
took place. Later the leaders gathered
at Sheriff Word's office and by 4
o'clock yesterday a complete under
standing had been reached and peace
was declared formally.
