been operating on the Portland-The

of the Joseph Kellogg to Kelso, which
had been scheduled for last night,
was canceled as soon as the purchase
was completed and the vessel was
loaded and dispatched to The Dalles.

MULTNOMAH LIMPS IX AFTER
HARD LUCK VOYAGE.
Misfortunes Begin With Collision
at San Pedro With Xew
With her rudder connected to her
capstans by a jury rig, her tiller
snapped cleanly in two, the after
bulkhead on the port side ' carried
away and the engine-room windows
battered in by heavy seas, the steam
schooner Multnomah of the McCor

and was towed' yesterday evening to

where she will undergo repairs.
The misfortunes of the Multnomah
began when she reached San Pedro

the Columbia river. As the story is
told by Jack Pennington, purser of
the Multnomah, the little vessel was
steaming for her berth at San Pedro
when the steel shipping board steam
er West Nomentum, sliding down the
launching . ways, headed dlrectly
across the course of the Multnomah.
The Multnomah's speed was checked
and the big steamer struck her only
a glancing blow on the bow. Little
apparent damage was done by the
On her way back to Portland with
40 passengers and a large cargo, the
Multnomah encountered heavy weath

tion of her bow. It is feared that she
may be strained as the result of the
