Publicity matter sent from the infor

for todays papers deals with wood
e-hips and shows that they still have
their field of usefulness on the seas.
The main portion of the story' was
taken from a statement made by E. W,
Wright, manager of the McEachern
Ship company, before Charles M. Schwab
and Charles Piez of the emergency flee
corporation, on the occasion of thei
visit here in July. 1918.
Mr. Wright told of Old wood ships.

to their durability. Of the entire wood

The government dredge Wahkiakum,
which operates in the Columbia ri-er
with the dredge Multnomah, came off
the public drydock yesterday, after
having had the hull cleaned and re

The Multnomah will be lifted in a few
days for the same kind of work. The

erable wear when the diggers shift po

The dredges will be returned to the
Columbia the last of July or early in
August. They have been out of serv

the new Kalama channel having been

SHIP, SCENE OF ALLEGED MURDER ON TRIAL AT NEW YORK, LEFT GOLDEN GATE YESTERDAY
.ON WAY TO LOAD
BARKEXTIXE PtTAKO. -New
York dispatches relate the progress of the trial of Captain - Adolph C. Pedersen,-former master of the
barkentlne Puako, and his son, Adolph Jr., for murder on the high seas. It is being charged that Axel Hansen, a
seaman, was chased aft by Young Pedersen, after being struck in the face, and that'he slipped under the rail and
fell into the sea. the mate ordering the ship put about to pick him up. The master of the vessel, however, counter
manded the order, leaving Hansen to die. The Puako yesterday left San Francisco for. Portland in tow of the tug
Relief, she being under charter to load lumber for the antipodes. Her present master is Captain Pearson. The
vessel was last here October 8, 1915. The alleged . treatment of Hansen is -said to have taken place August 6, 1918,
when the vessel was on the way to Cape Town. Three Portlanders, identified with the Coast Seamen's union, made
affidavits here for use at the trial, setting forth Captain Pedersen's previous reputation. He is said to have been
in a few shooting scrapes, one being at Portland Christmas Eve. 1912, but he was not prosecuted.

BOILER HERE FROM ST. LOUIS
Order Placed When Portland Plants
Did Not Submit Bids. .
A new boiler has arrived from St.
Louis for installation in the govern
ment steamer Mathloma, which, is op
erated on the Upper Willamette as a
combined dredge and snagboat. The
boiler was ordered in the east about a
year ago, because Portland manufac
turers were so engrossed in turning out
the big Scotch marine boilers for deep
water ships that there were no re
sponses to a call for bids.
The Mathloma leaves this week for
the upper river, towing a piledrivei
and crew to Wheatland, where a dyke
is to be repaired. The steamer will con
tinue channel work and, after the ma
rine road is cleared, is to return here
for the installation of the boiler.

Defendant in Murder Trial Had

CASE TO JURY BY MONDAY
Presiding Judge Says First-Degree
Verdict Will Not Be Re
ceived From Jurors.
NEW YORK, June 7. Captain Adolph
C. Pedersen, ekipper of the barkentlne
Puako, on trial in federal court with
his son on a charge of murder on -the
high seas in connection with the death
of Axel Hansen, a seaman, admitted to-
PORTLAND LUMBER CARGO
day under cross examination, that
though once when he had fallen over
board he owed his own life to a log
line, he did not order his crew to pull
in the line to which Hansen is said to
have clung after leaping into the sea.
After he admitted having had one
quarrel with Hansen on the fatal voy
age. Captain Pedersen repeated his con
tention that it was impossible to turn
his ship around to pick up Hansen be
cause of the gale which was raging.
Asked if he did not know that "it is
the custom at eea to throw a life ring
or a plank overboard to a drowning
man and then return to pick him up,"
the defendant admitted he did not toss
anything to Hanson nor did he have
the log line pulled in because he saw
at the end of it "only spray."
Old- Mariner Testifies.
Captain John H. Cameron, who said
he had sailed 47 years before the mast,
declared that even in the gale de
scribed by the defense, the Puako could
have put back to Hansen's rescue "if
the gallant yard had been dropped."
This operation, he added, would not
have taken more than a minute.
Edwin E. Baldwin, William H. Box
and Harry F. Glaze. Los Angeles po
licemen who patrol the water front in
that city, were called by the defense
to testify that Hansen had been "an
I. W. W. agitator of the worst type;
that he had been arrested twice for
assault and inciting a riot: that he
had been held by the federal authori
ties at Port Arthur for not filing a
draft questionnaire, and that' he had
advocated 'destruction of ships and car
goes.' " ' - - -
The defense has claimed that Han
sen attempted to start a mutiny among
the Puako'a crew. -
Case for Jury Monday. - -
The trial ended late today when both
sides agreed to eliminate Tebuttal.
Judge Hough denied a motion to dis
miss the Indictments, but consented to
hear further arguments Monday morn
ing. If the indictments are not - dis
missed then, the case probably will go
to the jury that afternoon.
Repeating his assertion that if a ver
dict of guilty of murder in the first
degree were returned he would dismiss
It, as premeditation had not been
shown. Judge Hough said that if the
jvy found young Pedersen, . second
mate, had pursued Hansen to his death
in the sea, a verdict of second degree
murder could be returned; and that if
the captain was found not to have ex
ercised fully his seamanlike skill he
could be found guilty of manslaughter.
