Dodds, a" fireman on the boat, It was
recovered at 9 o'clock last night by
teamsters on the Star Sand Company's
dock. When the steamboat men gave
It up as hopeless, the teamsters tried
their hands with better success, and
with the aid of grappling hooks,
brought Dodd's body to the surface.
Coroner Finley was notified and took
charge of the remains.
Dodds disappeared last Thursday
night after he had been seen Intox
icated, and ie supposed to have tum
bled off the narrow gangway trying
to board the boat In the dark. He
was 40 years old, and single.

Melville Dollar Will Take South
Cargo of 35,000.
LOADED ALONG -COLUMBIA
THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND, AUGUST 4, 1907.
Timbers If Laid End to End Would
Reach Fifty-three Miles and
Will Support Nine Miles
Aboard the steamer Melville Dollar,
when she sets sail for Guaymas. Mexico,
tometlme the Utter part of this week,
will be a cargo of 35,000 railroad yes.
These ties. If stretched out In line, end
to end, would extend 53 miles without a
break. They will be used in building new
tracks for the Mexican Central Railroad.
The Melville Dollar arrived in the C07
lumhla River Friday and left Astoria im
mediately for Westport. She already had
a load of 10.000 ties taken on at Tacoma,
and at Westport will take on 10.000 more.
From there she will shift to Stella for
the last consignment of 15,000 ties.
Shipping men have taken much interest
In the movements of the Melville Dollar,
and when she did not come to Portland
many questions concerning her where
abouts were asked. She is under charter
to J. H. Baxter to carry the ties south
from Oregon. The Melville Dollar Is a
new ship, hardly a year old. Even in her
short career, however, she has changed
hands and been once re-christened. For
mally the Dollar was the John C. Howard.
This is her second trip to the Columbia.
Oregon ties are much sought in Mexico
on account of their durability and the
mills here dispose of them as fast as
they are cut. The Dollar's cargo will
serve to support nine miles of rails.
MANY SEEK COOL SEA BEACH
T. J. Potter Takes 540 Passengers
to the Coast.
!with the biggest crowd of the season,
the steamer T. J. Potter left for the beach
yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock, carrying
540 passengers of a possible 700 allowed by
the Government inspectors. And the Sum
mer season is not yet at its height. Offi
cials of the water division of the O. R.
fc N. Co. expect the biggest rash to occur
In about two weeks. Most of the excur
lionlsts are bound for North Beach points,
although many prefer to go by water to
Astoria, thence by rail to Seaside.
' So far this season travel has shown a
Jecided Increase over that of last year,
but at no time has it as yet equaled the
record set for steamboat men during the
Lwls and Clark Exposition.- At that time
the Potter's capacity was only 800 people,
but on three days of 'nearly every week
passengers had to be turned away.
Traffic on the steamer Hassalo and other
river steamers also shows an increase
over that of 1908.
NICOMEDIA WILL GO LIGHT
Orientals' Clamor for Grain, but
None Is to Be Had.
' For the first time in llmonths, one
of the steamers of the "Portland &
' Asiatic Steamship Company,, .will be
compelled to sail without a full cargo.
Not that exporters are not willing and
anxious to fill the cargo space, but
, when the Nicomedia leaves port Satur
day through lack of more wheat In
the Interior, she will be obliged to go
. with not more than 1500 tons. Ira-
i porters at Hong Kong are clamoring
for the grain, but merchants here are
; absolutely powerless to meet their de
Within a month, however, the steam-
i ship officials say they expect business
to revive with a burst of activity that
will completely swamp them, and they
expect that their tonnage will be far
too small to handle ail freight offered.
Several big freighters bound this
, way coal-laden, however, are expected
i to relieve cqngestioh.
