Seward, Alaska, March 12. A wire
less messacre here from the United
States revenue cutter Tahoma tells of
the rescue of the boat crew that set
out nine weeks ago to seek aid for the
survivors of the wrecked steamer Far
The Alaska bteamship company's
wooden steamer Farallon was wrecked
in Iliamna bay on Cooks Inlet, January
5. Two days later Second Mate Gus
Swanson and five men, three of whom
were passengers, set out in an open
boat to row to Kodiak for assistance.
The men who went with Mate Swanson
were Seamen Charles Peterson and Otto
Nelson and Captain Wedding and En
gineer Albert tJaiiey, ot the launch
Seawolf, on their way to Kodiak to
join their craft, and Chalres Bourne, a
resident of Afognak.
February 2 the survivors who remained
on the snore near me scene oi tne
wreck were rescued by the steamship
Victoria. No word was received from
the boat crew, which had been missing
nearly a month when the Farallon sur-
vivors were rescued, and after two
steamers cruised about Kodiak island
and without finding them they were
given up for lost.
As a last resort the government was
asked to send the revenue cutter Taho
ma on a cruise around the island. It
was thought possible that the men
might have sought shelter in some in
let and be waiting the arrival ot a
steamer to take them off.
The Tahoma sailed from Seward two
weeks ago and no word was received
from her until tonight, when a wire
less message was relayed by the steam
ship Olympia stating that the" Tahoma
had been successful in her search. No
details concerning the rescue of Mate
Swanson and his men have been receiv
ed here and efforts to get into direct
communication with the Tahoma have
been unsuccessful. The revenue cutter
is expected to arrive at Seward tomor
CITY CRIES FOR RELIEF.
Philadelphia Urges Arbitration
tween Warring" Interests.
Philadelphia, March 12. The
for arbitration between the Philadel
phia Rapid Transit company and its
4,000 or more striking employes be
came insistent today.
From all quarters of Philadelphia
the demand for mediatory measures
was voiced. Everywhere it was recog
nized that failure to arrive at any ar
bitral agreement was the only thing
that prevented a speedy ending of the
general sympathetic strike, which has
paralyzed the industrial life of Phila
delphia and which, the labor leaders
say, will spread if the deadlock . con-
tinnues. These threats, perhaps, were
the very things which stood in the way
of an amicable adjustment. Ihe
vested interests," as they are some
times called, resent the hint of coer
cion. After discussion of the strike
question, a large gathering represent
ing more than 30 business organiza
tions of the citv. adopted a resolution
in which three separate influences are
invoked to end the industrial war.
R. & N. Demonstration Train
Distribute Seeds on Trip.
Free seed will be distributed by the
O. R. & N. demonstration train, which
is to tour Eastern Oregon this month.
The varieties will bo Canadian field
peas, Montana grown alfalfa and Min
nesota corn. The seed will bo civen
to farmers selected at the various
places to be visited by the commercia
clubs or the Farmers' union.
This system, it is believed, wil
bring better results than if the seeds
were given out promiscuously, as the
farmers will be selected upon promise
to carry out experiments with every
possible care and attention. In this
way it will be possible to ascertain ex
actly what results may be obtained
The demonstration train will leave
Portland Sunday evening, March 20, in
time to arrive at Heppner the follow

delivered there between the hours of
8:45 and 10:45 a. m. Then the itine

Tho Orenon branch of the American

with hendnuarters in Portland. With a
vlfiw to mnkinir their orcanization in

ing tho development of tho mineral re
sources of the state should join this or
ganization and send their names at
once to the secretary. Members of the
Oregon branch must be members of
the national body and the proper appli

make Oregon, as,it should be: one of
the foremost of the mining states.
