Ferryboat Mason Is Held Back for
Three Hours, but Ship Is Final
ly Docked "Without Damage
Dragging her anchors on account ol the
ebbing tide and the strong current in the
river, the German ship Chrlstel. lying in
the stream opposite the American Can
Company's dock, drifted down and caught
the cable ol the Albina ferry-boat W. S.
Mason, late yesterday afternoon.
As a consequence, the ferry was held up
from 5 to 8:30. No damage was sustained
by the wire cable, which was loosened
from the fluke o the anchor after con
The Christel, 1698 tons, has been loading
lumber for South Africa for the North
Pacific Mills. Soon after 4 o'clock yester
day afternoon It was seen that she was
gradually drifting down-stream. Captain
"Wurthmann was absent at the time.
Rapidly gaining headway, the Chrlstel
quickly traversed the 1200 yards or so to
the cable of the ferry. The fluke of one
anchor caught on the big wire rope, and
the ship swung round with the current.
The captain of the Mason telephoned to
Harbormaster Biglin, who left his dinner
table and hurried to the scene. No tow
boat could be obtained, and release to the
ferry was necessary, as it was the rush
Working from a rowboat, men fastened
a heavy line to the cable. This was put
on the after capstan, and the cable raised
until it dropped loose of the fluke of the
anchor. By this time the Christel was
close to the Irving dock, adjoining the
Bast Side landing of the Mason. Lines
were thrown out, and the Christel made
fast to the dock and one anchor let down.
The Mason resumed her trips across the
river, and no damage to the cable could
Whistles Put Out Lights.
"Almost Incredible vibration is caused
by the whistles of some of the river
boats equipped with extra powerful
sirens. The men who work on the
Madison-street bridge have often had
to relight the draw-lights after a boat
had whistled a short distance away.
The vibration from the whistle simply
puts out the light. The steamer Ruth
has a voice which belies her name, for
the brldgemen say her whistle has sev
eral times blown out the lights. The
Chas. R. Spencer is another offender,
"but she does not often pass through
the Madison-street bridge. This bridge
Is more susceptible than any of the
other structures. Firm as the Morri-Eon-street
bridge is, however, on any
quiet night that the Spencer whistles
while does by there Is a perceptible
Costa Itlca on Portland Hun.
Delayed by head winds and by two stops
to rescue a crazed passenger who leaped
overboard, the steamer Costa Rica did not
reach the Ainsworth dock until 7 o'clock
last night, nearly 24 hours overdue. She
brought a big lot of freight, and there Is
more awaiting her here than she will be
able to carry. The Costa Rica takes the
place of the Oregon, whose lease has ex
pired, and which will be operated by her
owners, the White Star Company, on the
Seattle-Nome route this Summer.

Niobe Makes Quick Passage.
Only one sailing vessel has ever made
"better time from Japan to the Columbia

which arrived oft the river early yesterday
morning, after a passage of 23 days from
Hiogo. She comes in ballast to load lum

HEALTH IS MAIN PROBLEM
3Iinister Barrett Tells of Dread or
yellow Fever on Canal.
NEW YORK, May 20. Sanitation and
preservation of health Is the one great
problem which confronts the American
authorities In the Panama Canal Zone,
according to a statement given out by
John Barrett, the American Minister to
Panama, who arrived here today on the
steamer Advance from Colon. He con
siders as alarming the report of five
cases of yellow fever at Colon.
"Existing conditions on the Isthmus
present many difficulties," said Mr. Bar
rett. "The sanitation problem is new and
presents many difficulties. The climate
is against us and Is ever present. Under
the efficient care of Dr. Georgas, the
"eminent yellow fe-er expert, everything
possible is being done to offset the in
crease of mortality. An alarming condi
tion Is the report of five cases of yellow
fever In Colon. It Is alarming because
up to the time these were reported no
yellow fever had appeared, and It was
hoped that the situation was in hand.
Considering the enormous number of ca
nal employes on the Isthmus, a very
DRAGGED DOWN STREAM BY CURRENT
small percentage of illness prevails, but
you know how these things are. It one
half were sick with malaria, nothing
would be thought of it, but a case or two
of yellow fever appears and all the em
ployes want to quit and get away. I be
lieve these sanitary and health problems
will be met successfully, but they far
overshadow all others.
"I am going to Bogota and hope to ac
complish something toward establishing
more cordial relations between Colombia
and our country. Panama Is now ripe for
a full re-establlshment of cordial rela
tions with Colombia, and all feeling of
enmity caused by the revolution has dis
appeared. My personal relations have
been most cordial at Panama and there
is no truth in the report of friction. On
my departure, I received a cordial letter
from the Foreign Minister. At Bogota
I hold pleasant relations with General
Reyes, the President."
Herman Dietrich, United States Consul
Gencral at Guayaquil, and about 20 canal
employes, also arrived on the Advance.

journed session of Circuit Court here
today, and gave Ella B. Keen Judgment
on her verdict of $3090. awarded her

Trespassed on His Father's Farm.
HILLSBORO. Or.. May 20. (Special.)
A jury in Judge H. T. Bagley's Court
yesterday found Joseph Swift guilty of
trespassing on the farm of his father,
near DIHey, and the defendant was
fined 513 and costs. The defendant this'
Spring -sued his father for 51200 for al
leged services on the farm of his father,
covering a period of three years, and
the jury returned a verdict for the old
gentleman, and gave him a judgment
for $37.50. Upon pretense of an alleged
lease young Swift has been working on
part of the land belonging to the father
and the arrest for trespass followed.
Sensation Is Looked For.
HOOD RIVER, Or.. May 20. (Spe
cial.) Prominent citizens of Mount
Hood say the sentiment among: the
people there is pretty generally favor
able to Rles. The belief is current there
that Ries did not TclII Foss. Those fa
miliar with circumstances leading- up
to the tragedy of last week believe
there will be developments at the
trial next week which will put an en
tirely different light on affairs of the
last few days. Just what these sensa
tions are no one appears willing to
say. Just at present.

of AI ICader Temple.
George H. Hill, illustrious potentate of
Al Kader Temple of the Order of the
Mystic Shrine, Portland, has completed
arrangements for the reception of mem
bers of Al Katif Temple, Spokane," and
Aflfi Temple," of Seattle and Tacoma. who
will come to Portland In force to attend
the semi-annual reunion of the local
Shrine on Saturday, June 17 next. The
visiting members from the Tacoma. Seat
tle and Spokane Temples, together with
many Eastern Slirlncrs who will be In
Portland on that date, will make the re
union of the local shrine in June next one
of the most memorable gatherings of
Shrlncrs In the history of the Pacific
As people generally understand, the
membership of the Shrine In all parts of
the United States. Is made un of the most
' representative men of the country- While
I the aims of the Shrine compass nothing
i more than ,sociabillty and ood fellow
i ship, yet the fact that members of the
I Mnsnnlf nrHor rvli n hnvo tr;i!nw1 tho rile.
tincllon of having reached the highest de
grees only are eligible to membership In
the Shrine, insures in Itself an enrollment
of the names of the best men everywhere
on the books of the different Shrine tem
ples. In keeping with the representative
character of the organization, the parade
of local and visiting Shriners through the
streets of Portland Saturday evening, June
17. will be one of the great events of the
year. The parade will be led by a platoon
of picked men from Portland's City Police
Department Music will be furnished by
three bands. The illustrious potentate ot
the local temple will make a special ap
peal to every able-bodied member of the
order here to turn out and march with
his brethren. A request of this kind from
the illustrious potentate of any temple, as
Shriners generally understand, is virtually
made mandatory, so far, as compliance
with request by local members Is con
cerned. The distinctive uniform of a Shrlncr on
all festal occasions is the red Fez cap,
and full dress. There will be no feature
of the parade that will be permitted to de
tract from the dignity and high character
of the Shrine In the appearance the lo
cal members, and members of the many
visiting orders, will make before the peo
ple of Portland on the occasion of the
next annual reunion. At the Armory the
candidates who will traverse the hot
.sands of the desert during the Initiatory
ceremonies may havo occasion at some
future time to recur to the exciting events
of a certain memorable evening In June.
A. D. 1903. They are already assured they
will have the satisfaction of reflecting
that they were at least conducted to tho
scenes of their revels by a large delega
tion of representative Shriners. In a dig
nified manner wholly In keeping with the
traditions of the honorable order.
