Columbia River Is Attracting Un

and From Eastern Cities.
Operators of steamboat lines on the
Willamette and Columbia look for the
largest excursion business this year
eince 1905. and possibly it will equal
the patronage of 1893 and 1900, thoutrh
it may not prove as busy as in 1896
and 1897. which are said to have been
There were more private excursions
toy Portlanders and Oregonians in 1896
and 1897. while In 1899 and 1900 thou
sands of Easterners headed for the
Pacific Coast, as it was during that
period that privately conducted excur
sions by rail were moat popular. The
came years different conventions drew
epecial trains of railroad employes and
all organizations arranged their itiner
ary so as to include a trip on the river.
In 1905, during the Lewis and Clarlc
Fair, small parties were numerous,
patronizing excursion steamers on
regular runs as a rule and not char
tering vessels as is now being done.

make a special trip from The Dalles
to Portland with 250 Shriners on their
way to California from the East. The
same day the steamer Undine will
carry members of the Oregon City Fire

CIVIL WAR BATTLE FOUGHT
Spectacular Career of Old Frigate
Brought to Inglorious End Off
Bellingham After Service
as Storage Plant.
BELLINGHAJf, Wash, July . (Spe
cial.) The touch .of a match and all
that was left of the gallant old bat
tleship Xlpstc. which helped make
naval history for nearly 60 years, was
consigned to flames this week on the
"est shore of Lummi Island, across
'Ulngham Bay from this place. The
last word in construction in her day,
only the bare bulk, blackened with,
smoke, is left to speak of her career.
Two incidents stand out above all the
rest in the palmy days of the Nipsic.
She was of Admiral I'arrsgut's fleet
at Mobile and she was the only Amer
ican vessel to come out whole In the
great typhoon at Apia. Samoa, tn 1SI9.
At the Battle of Mobile Bay she gave
good account of herself. From that time
until 1SS9 little of note came her way.
In 1889 she was stationed at Panama.
Soon afterwards orders came to go
to Apia. Samoa, and It was there that
one of the most heroic acts of seaman
ship was recorded.
The typhoon came up without warn
ing. Several vessels were inside a
coral reef and their captains saw the
danger. Quick efforts were made to
race outside. However, the wind struck
and the vessels were soon ramming each
other and a few minutes later all but
three went on the reef. The Nlpslc
lost her sails and, floundering about,
collided mith the German boat Kber,
sending that vessel to the bottom.
Hassan Sail la Formed.
The Nipnic rescued most of the crew
and beat on against the storm. With
every shred of sail gone. Midshipman
Jackson Jumped to the mainmast and.
calling to the crew, now numbering
540. to follow him, distributed them
about on the masts, literally making
a human sail. The man at the helm, with
this assistance, was able to poke the
nose of the Nipsic aright and she rode
the waves to safety.
The keel of the Aipslc waa laid at
Bangor, Me. She went into commission
as one of the best vessels of the day
In the closing days of the Civil-War.
She was ordered rebuilt in 1879 by
Secretary of the Navy Kobinson. From
1888 to 1894 the Nipsic was used as a
prison ship at New York Harbor. While
there thousands of people trod her
decks. From them silver dimes were
collected and a massive bell weighing
10 pounds was cast from them. This
bell and the twisted rudder, a relic of
the Samoan typhoon, still are on dis
Vesae-1 Bctonn Storasre Pleat.
When the naval station was estab
lished at Bremerton. Wash., in 1894. the
Nipsio waa ordered there, being towed
around the Horn. For some time the
men and officers lived aboard. Later
land quarters were built and the Nipsic
was transformed into a training ship.
This was her last service for the Gov
ernment. In 1912, at open auction, the
Nipsic was sold to the Carlysle Packing
Company for J7000. Tha company fit
ter her up for a cold-storage plant for
canned salmon and also used her as a
barge for carrying cannery supplies.
A year ago the Nipsic waa towed to
Eagle Harbor. There riuch of her fit
tings of brasa and copper were re
moved and used to construct a private
yacht. Still replete, with coper and
fine oak. the canning company aeciaea
to reduce the hull to ashes and Junk
the metal. Accordingly. about six
months ago. she was towed to the can
nery plant on Lurnml Island and there
beached. Last ednesday the lorcn was
applied. It is estimated the salvage
will bring about $15,000. Her original
cost waa upward of 11.000.000.
Thus is the history of one of Unci
Sam's mirn. fiahters. Staunch to the
last, her destruction will not be com
plete until workmen with ax and ham
mer tear asunder the shell of the hull
and again apply the torch.
