Wind Off Port Orford Rises and
Danger Increases With
Storm Prospects.
Captain of Schooner Ashore Stays In
Sick Bed Aboard Ship All Night
Till Effort Is Made to
Draw Vessel Out.
BANDON, Or.. Sept. 2. (Special.)
The steam schooner Bandon, which
went ashore at Port Orford yesterday,
will be a total loss, according to late
reports here, which say the vessel is
full of water and breaking up rapidly
under the poanding of a. heavy sea
from the southwest. Wreckage is com
ing ashore.
The boat is lying on small rocks with
her hull punctured in several places.
She hit the rocks at 2 o'clock yesterday
afternoon and Captain F. Hermanson
kept the crew at work until this morn
ing when the engine-room became
flooded. The tug Kliyham reached the
scene at dark, but could not get a line
aboard The Coast Guard crew left
Bandon this morning, but turned back
three miles north of Port Orford upon
meeting the tug returning. The crews'
dunnage and instruments were taken
off. The crew was brought here to
day on its way to San Francisco. The
captain and officers remained with the
The Bandon is valued at $60,000 and
is reported fully insured. It is ex
pected that machinery and fittings will
be saved as the boat is les athan 100
feet from shore.
The captain, who was ill in bed at
the time of the wreck, was taken to
Bandon and placed in. a hospital for
The wind at 5 P. M. was light,
but later became heavier, and a
storm is prevailing. The sea wa
moderate all day and there was
little surf. A ground swell of consid
erable proportions disturbed the craft
during the day, but the hawsers held
her in position..
The water surrounding the wreck is
about six feet in depth.
A number from Bandon. including W.
K. Best, one of the company's agents,
are here. George W. Moore, who ships
lumber on the vessel, is also on the
ground to give whatever assistance is
' Bandon in Recent Wreck.
Several months ago, the steamer
Bandon met with a mishap at or near
the wharf here while she was moored
to load a cargo of ties. The swell of
the sea lurched the Bandon away from
the wharf and tore down about 100 feet
of it, which was loaded -ith ties. Sev
eral men were injured in the sliding
mass of timbers and one or two were
taken to a hospital.
The Bandon is owned by the Fyfe
Company and Estabrook. A few months
ago anothersteamer, the Fifield, be
longing to the same firm, was wrecked
on the squth spit at Bandon and went
to pieces in two weeks, after unsuc
cessful efforts were made by the
wrecking tug Iaqua and local parties
to get her from the beach. .
The scene of the Bandon's position is
about the same placer where the steamer
Fulton was lost 12 or 15 years ago.
The Fulton was driven on the beach
and broke up after several days. She
was being operated by the Gray Com
pany. Wrecking Efforts Impossible.
The loss of the Bandon is practically
admitted tonight, there being scant be
lief that she can be pulled from the
orach, rilled with water and so situ
ated as to prevent patching the tears
in her hull, it is almost certain the
wrecking efforts will prove fruitless.
Kaln is falling and there is no sigi
the weather will turn clear. The south
west wind and the swell is chafing the I
hawsers and making the probability she I
will be held throughout th night
The shipping interests at Bandon will
feel ' the loss of the Bandon keenly,
since she was amonj the mainstays
In the lumber shipments and was built
particularly for that bar.
SIUSIjAW work goes fast
North Jetty Completed and Equip
ment Moved to South Side.
FLORENCE, Or., Sept. 2. (Special.)
Work on the north jetty at the mouth
of the Siuslaw has been completed, and
the equipment is being moved to the
south side of the river, where the con
tractors, the Miami Quarry Company,
are building the south jetty.
During the first 28 days of this
month 15.200 tons of rock were put in
on the north jetty, this being the rec
ord on this river for that period of
The work is effecting a decided deep
ening of the channel on the bar, sound
ings taken during the Summer having
shown a depth of from 12 to 13 feet
of water at low tide for some months.
The channel is wide and at high tide
is from 18 to 20 feet deep. Mr. Leefe.
engineer in charge of the work for the
Government, estimates that the work
will be completed in about eight
SleCormick Interests Will Supply
Cargo for Hammond Steamer.
Under charter to 'the Charles R. Mc
Cormlck Lumber Company, the steamer
General Hubbard of the Hammond
Lumber Company's line, will load here
and at St. Helens next week for San
Pedro and San Diego. The vessel was
fixed recently to load general cargo
at San Francisco for Portland in the
Parr-McCormick service, sailing from
the Golden Gate Thursday, and since
she wis taken for the return voyage.
Coast lumber freights are holding
decidedly firm, $6 being paid from the
Columbia River and Washington ports
to San Francisco and $7 to San Pedro
and San Diego. The Hubbard carries
l.00.000 feet, so will earn a neat sum
on the trip. She is usually operated
by her owners in carrying lumber from
their mill at Astoria to San Francisco.
Master of Admiral Clark Goes Down
With Ship In Hurricane. s"
Portland friends of Captain "Jimmie"
Daniels, who was reported lost with
the steamer Admiral Clark August 16,
when she sank during a hurricane
when en route from Port Arthur for
Buenos Ayres, have about given up
hope that he managed to get away
from the vessel. Of the crew 20 were
drowned and six survivors were picked
up by a steamer and taken to Port
Kads. reaching there Thursday. They
had been afloat on a raft days.
Captain Daniels was well known here,
and for a time after the steamer Port
land came trom the East in the service.

The Citizens Bank of Portland has Just been Installed in its new quarters at the northeast corner of Grand
avenue and Alder streets. The fine new home. Including the grounds, represents an investment of $50,000 and
marks an epoch of growth in the Institution which had been a factor of financial life in Portland for the last 26
years. N. U. Carpenter is the present president. The bank formerly was located at Union avenue and Washington
street, where it was organized by J. H. Lambert 26 years ago. The fixtures and conveniences of the new home are
compatible with advanced banking, and many have called at the bank during the past week to inspect the vaults
and be taken through the plant.
The East Side Business Men's Club has new quarters in the building and is planning a formal reception and

Flve-Day Schedule Will Be Main
tained With Two Steamers.
MARSH FIELD, Or., Sept. 2. (Spe
cial.) The Arrow Line Steamship
Company, owned by Swayne & Hoyt, of
San Francisco, announced a five-day
schedule between San Francisco and
Coos Bay, with freighters, one of which
will be the steamer Yellowstone, now
plying here, and another boat of equal
or larger capacity. The craft will sail
to and from the Smith Terminal dock,
in the heart of the city. No freight will
be carried south, as the vessels are
lumber carriers and will transport that
product for the North Bend Mill & Lum
ber Company continuously.
The schedule commences from San
Francisco September 10. The small
steam schooner Prentiss will be util
ized as the second boat until the larger
vessel is procured by purchase or
Rose city Leaves for California With
Good Passenger List.
When the gasoline tug Echo, "bull
dog" of the Shaver fleet, took a line
from the "Bie Three" steamer Rose
City yesterday afternoon, swung her
away from Ainsworth dock and turned
her around, persons on the oock ana
nearby bridges had a comprehensive
idea of what pulling power was vested
in a 100-horsepower gasoline engine,
such as the Echo boasts.
The Rose City started south with 155
passengers and all the cargo there was
time to load- The Beaver, fleetmate of
the Rose City, left San Pedro yesterday

Steamer Republic, Salvaged at
Papeete, Comes Today.
Vessel Is Former German Freighter
Walkure, and " Was Sunk in
Island Harbor by Teuton
Bombarding Squadron.
A vessel due in the harbor today to
take aboard & lumber cargo for the
West Coast is the American steamer
Republic, formerly the German steamer
Walkure, whfch almost two years ago
was sunk in the roadstead at Papeete
Harbor, a victim of the European war.
She went to the bottom September
14. 1914. and while at the time was a
prize of war of the French gunboat
Zelee, her sinking was brought about
through being struck by shells fired
by the German squadron that bom
barded Papeete. The Walkure was
laden with 1200 tons of coal and 2000
tons of phosphate. A year afterward
she was purchased by John A. Hooper
and others, and November 8, 1915, the
well-known coaster Chehalis reached
Papeete and the work of raising her
In that Captain Leb Curtis, who
completed his education at Portland,
after spending his youthful days here,
and graduating from the Bishop Scott
Academy, played an Important role, he
having directed the operations.
They were carried on by 40 men
taken from San Francisco, augmented
by six native carpenters and about 25
laborers employed there. The steamer
rested on a bed or coral and hard sand,
with a five-degree list to starboard,
the forecastle being about 15 feet under
water and the poop 30 feet, so only
her masts, funnel and flying bridge
were visible above water.
A large cofferdam was built over
the deck of the vessel, . fastened
strongly to the hull, and shell holes in
the'hull were patched. Pumping began
December 24. As the ship rose she was
shifted toward the beach. While de
lays were met with in patching leaks,
later cutting down the height of the
cofferdam and the like, she was finally
affoat January 11. January 22 she
obtained American registry, and was
named the Republic.
Under her own steam she made San
Francisco, but, of course, due to the
long period of submersion, her machin
ery was far from being in a satisfac
tory condition, and it was necessary to
make Honolulu for repairs. On reach

The Republic is a turret-deck type
and was built at Sunderland by Will

pendiculars, has a beam of 49 feet and
molded depth of 23.9 feet. She has
triple expansion engines and three
Scotch marine boilers.
Screens on Rose Useful.
C-austic comments were indulged, in
i -
by s.ome of the water-front fraternity
when the construction of the new light
house tender Rose was beun, because
the specifications called for bronze
screens being fitted in portholes and
entrances on deck, as barriers against
mosquitoes. Since the vessel has been
in the river, and particularly with the
present work of erecting new light
structures at Slaughter's, the screens
have been found most serviceable
against swarms of the insects. Crews
on others of the river fleet are hopeful
that screening will come into general
use aboard Government vessels.

Two of Alaska-Portland Fleet Got
Through Thursday.
That the tug Akutan and the bark
Berlin got through Unimak Pass Thurs
day night on their way here from the
N'ushagak canneries of the Alaska
Portland Packers" Association, was
news received last night by Frank M.
Warren of the company, a wireless
message having been sent from the
Berlin. The tug evidently assisted the
bark through the Pass and probably
proceeded at once, leaving the bark to
sail, so the former is looked for in the
river about Thursday.
The bark Levi O.- Burgess, of the
same fleet, got away from Nushagak
August 24. As she has no wireless her
progress to not known. The vessels
are laden with about 90.000 cases of
canned salmon, which will be dis
charged here for distribution. Most of
the cannery hands and fishermen sent
north by the company are returning
aboard the Berlin.
Saturday Proves Busy Day for
' Steamboat Agents Here.
Doubt in the minda of some shippers
whether the threatened railroad strike
would be averted resulted in numer
ous consignments being diverted to
steamboat lines. At Alder-street dock
deliveries were unusually heavy, but it
was said no dlffuculty would be ex
perienced in moving them readily. At
Oak-street dock the steamer Tahoma
wa given considerable extra business.
In a measure the same conditions
were found at the headquarters of
other lines. Had it not been for the
fact the railroads lifted embargoes
early in the day the water lines would
probably have been swamped. Terri
tory Immediately adjacent to the Co
lumbia ana Willamette - Rivers could
be served in the event the railroad lines
were tied up and some places back from
the streams could have been supplied
by teams.

Sinking of Steamer Inspires
Muse to Banter Crew.
S. F. Lockwood, of Henderson Com
pany, Describes Scene Aboard
Ship AYhen Accident Occurs
and Rockets Are Not Seen.
As no lndlvllduals suffered through
the sinking of the steamer Shaver early
last month, near the head of Walker's
Island, and it transpired that the
steamer Henderson, also of the Shaver
fleet, was a short distance ahead of
the Shaver, but not within range of
her signals for help, good-natured ban
ter has been indulged in among crews
of other boats in the Shaver fleet.
One result of that has been the com
pilation of the folowlng by S. F. Lock-
wood, of the Henderson's company:
"The nirht ie fine, not even a elo-ud."
Says Pilot Ring, as he mused aloud.
The Steamer Shaver, Queen of craft.
Came puffing along, towing two log rafts.
When, without warning, came a . crash
jn tne starboard quarter, quit a smash.
nrave t-not King tne whistle blew.
And he ordered the watchman to call the
He says. "Dear shipmates, tried and true.
I've done my very best for you.
My calls for help have not been heard.
As the Henderson answered not a word.
So put your trust above in him.
It Is up to you to sink or swim."
" VUIU, ntin tU(lcrill(i
Like the hero he was, went down with the
n.4 V. I II.. .(. : I .
The mate says. "Boys, don't act like fools.
II get my book and we'll go by the rules.
Says first of all is to save the cook.
For with plenty of coffee, cake and pie
We'll all of us be more wilting to die."
Then this brave crew. led hy th mate.
All rushed above to save poor Kate.
But the cook, with flrmne&d. rolled up her
And says to the crew. "Mr heart it Krteves
To leave my home on thl Shaver boat:
Just stay with the ship as Ions as sb
Then the cook and crew says. "Let her rip."
They stayed on board and went down with
the ship.
Now. the captain brave, if the truth la said.
Never crawled out of his little bed.
So the steamer Shaver aavs to herself,
"I've spent my life In making pelf.
I've tusgd and pulled for many a mile
To help the Shavers make xheir pile.
I've held my own with all th -raft
Pulled many a barpe and many a raft,
I've whistled and landed at many a town.
So now I think 111 settle down.
Then fare ye well to rival craft.
Then fare ye well to barge and raft.
With my head line fast to a post.
I. steamer Shaver, give up the ghost."
