Ten Men at Astoria Tell Thrilling
Tale of Storm Experience.
ASTORIA. Or.. Feb. 1. (Special.)
The ten men who returned this morn
lng from an effort to salvage gas
buoy No. 2. which broke adrift from
the harbor entrance some weeks ago
and drifted into Clatsop beach, tell a
thrilling tale of their experience dur
lne Saturday's gale. The men are
Contractor Peterson. Charles and
Eben Parker, Tom A. Hilliard, Earl
Holmes, Ted Sutton. William Hart.
A. Gaffney and J. BelL
The buoy, which weighs 17 tons,
had been placed on a trailer and was
beintr towed by three trucks that had
Droceeded about three and a half
miles along the beach when the
storm broke.
The gale swept the beach with the
Telocity of a hurricane, picking up
everything loose. Several members
of the buoy salvaging party had
close calls when huge missiles
whizzed by their heads. They were
finally forced to protect themselves
by seeking out fox holes and other
secluded nooks along the Deacn in
which to secrete themselves until the
wind had abated.
The Hart and Sutton trucks were
detached from the trailer bearing the
buoy and their drivers started south
along the beach with the vehicles,
hoping to make Gearhart or some
other point where they might reach
the highway. Because of the storm
of flying missiles and the force of
the wind, little headway was made
and to protect themselves Sutton and
Hart finally abandoned their trucks
and sought refuge behind the sand
dunes near Columbia beach.
Meantime back at the spot where
the trailer with the buoy was located
the others of the party were having
all they could do to save the truck,
trailer and buoy which had sunk Into
the sand deeply and threatened to be
come a total loss.
After getting the vehicles on solid
ground the eight men started bat
tllng their way toward Fort Stevens,
a fight that required five hours to
accomplish, mostly on hands and
knees and which gave all of the men
a chance to show their ability In
dodging the debris with which the air
was filled, the dense clouds of sand
adding to their difficulty in setting
to safety.
Storm on Olympic Peninsula Vn
roofs House and Damages Craft.
(Special.) Houses unroofed, plate
glass broken, telephone and telegraph

the most severe known on the Olym
pic peninsula, the velocity of the wind
ranging between 45 and 60 miles an
hour, while at Diamond point it
reached 102 miles.
The storm started early In the eve
ning and continued until Sunday
morning. A portion of the night Port
Townsend was in darkness. The
stcrm extended all over the Olympic
peninsula. While no authentic re
ports have been received from the
country districts, it is known that
the property loss is heavy. No loss
of life has been reported thus far,
though there were several narrow
escapes from death. Two automobiles
en route to this city with passengers

passing under the tree Just before it

ounce the sudden death at Los An

ewspaper man who was well-known
throughout the Pacific northwest, and
all along the Pacific coast.
Mr. Wall was born in Allegheny
City, Pa., now part of Pittsburg, about
60 years ago, and was a member of
an old family of that section. He
became a reporter on the Pittsburg
ewspapers about 1S80, was city edi-
or of the Times in 1884-5, and later
did some brilliant work as a special
He came to the Pacific coast about
1S86 and, though working for long
periods in other cities, made Tacoma

periods was city editor of the Ledger

After news of the discovery of gold
on the Klondike reached the coast he
started for Dawson on the first
steamer that went up the Yukon. The
boat was frozen up in the ice about
600 miles below Dawson and other
correspondents settled down to wait
till it thawed out in the spring, but
Wall bought a sled, dogs and sup
plies and traveled the rest of the dis
tance afoot in the intense cold of an
Alaska' winter, being the first news
paperman to arrive in Dawson after
the discovery. His wife made a later
trip to the Klondike with him, and
afterward made several winter trips
alone with stocks of merchandise.
Of late years Wall was best known
on the coast for his efforts to cause
adoption of "Tacoma" as the legal
name of Mount Rainier. He form'ed
the "Justice to the Mountain" club,
gained much publicity for it by his
attractive style of writing, and
focused the attention of the country
by presenting its case to the national
board of geographic names, though
his plea was denied. One diversion
was a trip on a yacht with a moving
picture company to the west coast of
Mexico for the purpose of taking pic
tures of the revolution. The sight
of the "gringoes" so excited the Mexi
cans that, in order to calm them, the
commander of an American warship
patroling the coast ordered the movie
men to abandon their enterprise.
Mrs. Wall died several years ago,
and after the death, of a eister in
Tacoma a year ago he moved to Los
Angeles. His plan to become an
orange grower was foiled by his
death. An adopted son of his sister
became his ward and is at Hill Mili
tary academy.

"Tanlac Helped Me When

the past two or three years in such
bad shape that I wasn't able to work,
and scarcely able to get around at all.

life In my body, and would have to use
very strict judgment in what I did
eat, or I would nearly die with pain.
I couldn't eat pie or anything sour,
for if I did the indigestion would
nearly lay me out completely. I was
so nervous and fidgety I couldn't be
still, and a good night's sleep was
just out of the question. I also had
splitting headaches, and was bothered
a great deal with constipation.
"A friend told me of Tanlac. and I
have gotten such splendid results
from the medicine that I can now eat
anything set before me without It
causing me a particle of trouble. I
have gained ten pounds in weight,
and feel fine. Tanlac has certainly
done the work for me, and I don't
hesitate to Indorse the medicine."
