Fears were expressed in marine cir

barkentine Thrasner. formerly an old
whaling steamer, which sailed from

has teen heard from the vessel since
she sailed. Captain W. C. Erratt, a

ordinarily should have taken about
20 days, the possibility was expressed
that she may have been lost at sea

she probably is still somewhere off
the Washington coast waiting for fa
vorable winds to carry her past Cape
Flattery and into the Straits of Juan
de Fuca, it was said. Offshore east
winds, which have been blowing for
about three weeks, would prevent the
boat from reaching the straits.
"There is no need for any uneasi

Olaf Svenson, owner of the boat, said
today. "The vessel's bottom is very
foul and she took the outside route.
which would carry her anywhere from
350 to 700 miles off shore. Head
winds undoubtedly are solely respon
sible for the fact that she has not yet
reached Seattle. We are figuring
that the Thrasher Is lying out some
where off Cape Flattery waiting for
a favorable breeze to bring her into
the Strait of Juan de Fuca."
The Thrasher was bought by Mr.
Swenson recently from H. J. Knowles
of San Francisco to take the place
of the old Arctic trader and whaler

Rewards to Be Paid Today.
Distribution of the reward for the
caoture and conviction of the Clare-
mont tavern murderers probably will
be made today, according; to an
nouncement made yesterday. It had
been planned to make the distribu
tion yesterday, but plans were de
layed by the failure of some of the
money to arrive. The payment of the
reward Is being handled through the
First National bank.
Three out of every four Germans
more than 90 years of age are women
