I0WAFJ WILL LEAVE i
MOTORSHIP CALIFOKNIAN, MOST RECENT ACQUISITION TO FLEET OF AMERICAN-HAWAIIAN
.LENE, VIEWED BY PORTLANDERS WHILE LANDING INITIAL CARGO.
Damage in Recent Collision
Has Been Repaired.
CRAFT TO DEPART SOON
Steamer Santa Veronica Lifted
From Water for Overhauling,
Four weeks ago tonight the
steamer Iowan collided with and
sank, the British steamer Welsh
Prince, and this afternoon the Iowan
will float from the Port of Portland
drydock plant fully repaired and
ready to load for the return to the
Atlantic. The Albina Marine Iron
Works got the contract for the re
pairs on a stipulation to complete
the work in 19 days, and the time
expired yesterday, final work berng
the painting of the hull, which was
finished in the afternoon.
The Iowan was damaged badly
forward but with a nw stem and
plates and frames forward replaced,
she is again shipshape.
Loading to Be Finished.
On arriving here after the acci
dent, inbound cargo was landed,
while there was a part cargo aboard
that was taken on at Puget sound
cities for the east. Considerable
more remains to be loaded that orig
inated at Portland and the ship will
finished at California ports.
The steamer Santa Veronica, which
broke her propeller and tailshaft
last week while shifting on Coos
Bay, was lifted yesterday on the
original Port of Portland drydock.
Because of the accident Captain N. C.
Svane entered a protest at the cus
toms .house, setting forth that while
shifting the vessel struck a sub
merged object, stripping all blades
from her propeller and breaking the
tailshaft about one foot from the
outside tail bearing.
Steamer Towed to Portland.
The ship, was towed to Portland
and has aboard 500,000 feet of spruce
lumber. On being repaired she is to
return to Coos Bay and take on
about 1,300,000 feet additional for
delivery at New Tork, the material
being shipped on account of the
Charles R. McCormick company.
Whether the Japanese steamer
Tpres Maru, which was damaged in
collision with the oil tanker Frank
G. Drum last week, will come here
from Coos Bay to be repaired has
not been determined. A report of
the survey will be made tomorrow
and that is expected to show ddnv
age confined above the load line, so
it is possible temporary repairs may
be made and the vessel sent on to
RADIO CONTROL TAKEN OVER
Portlanders Get Jobs on Umatilla
and Columbia Light Vessels.
Control of radio operations on the
Umatilla reef and Columbia river
light vessels was taken over yester
day by the bureau of lighthouses,
through Robert Warrack, superin
tendent of the 17th district. During
the present week the same steps
w'U be followed aboard the Swift
sure bank light vessel, which is
lying at Tongue Point undergoing
an overhauling. Up to the present,
radio operators have been assigned
by the navy, but an order was issued
recently through which the bureau
of lighthouses will employ its own
operators by July 1. '
So far the two berths'flued were
given to Portlanders and besides a
third man to be signed for the
Swiftsure bank ship, a fourth will
be aboard the relief right vessel.
Under the navy system the operator
on the relief ship replaced men on
the other vessels in turn, as they
received shore liberty.

Clatsop spit gas and whistling
buoy No. 12, the position of which 1
marks an important -turn inside the
entrance to the Columbia river, will
be replaced this week after having
been run down and damaged by ves-
vels twice during the past few
weeks. Lighthouse authorities say
they are at a loss to make any extra
provision to keep - deep-water men
away from the mark, but they are
of the opinion masters of vessels
fouling the aid are not always cau
tious in making the turn and brirfg
up against the buoy with their side.
With two buoys out of commission
a temporary light has been used at
the point. The buoy to be replaced
is reported in first-class order ana
the substitute buoy has been re
paired and will be available as soon
as a lantern is received from the
east, in about six weeks.
The restoration .01 tin Duoy pro
vides four whistles at the entrance,
one being on the south side, beyond
the jetty, which is a gas and whis
tler, while on the north side is a
whistler, ships passing between
them, and buoy No. 6. inside, is a
gas and whistler. Much trouble was
experienced in placing Buoy wo. li
originally, all types tried out there
having failed to stand up against
the tide, and some of them were
towed completely under. In trying
out a gas. and whistler it was not
expected the whistle apparatus would
operate because the water -is much
more auiet than outside, dui it Hap
pened that the buoy sounded loud
enough so that It could be distinctly
heard at Desdemona lighthouse, so
in giving a light and sounding a
warning the aid is held to be de
cidedly valuable to navigators.
' The trial of Captain Wie of the
motorship BoobyaKa, alleged to have
damaged the buoy on her last out
bound voyage, comes up tomorrow
morning before United States Steam
Vessel. Inspectors Edwards and

saiid the California is all that she"!
could be, and those who went aboard
yesterday, from eailormen to women !
guests, were of the opinion that the
skipper was right. . The Californian
is a flushdeck ship and from the
forecastlehead aft stoe offers in rig
and cargo facilities the latest gear.
Her length between perpendiculars
is 461.7S feet and her beam 69 feet.
As to speed, she is rated at 13 knots
and normally makes 11. 5 knots. Her
engines are each of 2260 horsepower
and were built by William Cramp &
Sons, while the ship contract was
undertaken at the Merchant Ship

has been aboard since the ship left
