DERELICT BESSIE K
Is Still Floating About and Is Feared
by tbo Const Ves
sels. Tho hulk of tho derelict Bessie K.
Is still floating about, a menace to
tho mariners. Tho Portland Tele
gram has tho following report of the
Four days ago a derelict was
sighted off the Heceta Head light
Btatlon drifting to the southward.
The wreck was about six miles off
tho coast and as near as could be
made out It was tho remnants of a
vessel, supposed tho gasoline schoon
er Bessie K. which has been reported
lost for six weeks. What was taken
for the same vessel was sighted by
the officers of the steamer Alliance
north of Coos Bay.
Captain P. J. Werllch, lighthouse
Inspector of tho Thirteenth district,
received a message from Olaf Han
son, keeper of the Heceta 'station,
on the Lane county coast this morn
ing, that he first saw the derelict
on April 14, and again two days
later. As she was some distance
faway tho keeper was unable to give
a very definite dlscrlptlon of the
vessel. Captain Werllch thinks there
Is no doubt that It Is the same wreck
reported by tho Alliance. He will
report the matter to the hydro
graphic office and some arrangement
may soon be made to get the derelict
out of tho path of shipping up and
down the coast.
About bIx weeks ago the schooner
Bessie K sailed from Coqulllo river
to San Francisco with lumber. Noth
ing of a definite nature has been
heard of her since. She had a crew
of four or five sailors and the sup
position la that all have been
drowned. The vessel sighted by the
Alliance had turned turtle. The
steamer passed within 300 feet of
Unless the wreck is picked up
mariners fear some of the coasters
will collide with It and cause serious
consequences. Mostly submerged,
tho craft cannot bo seen until a
steamer gets dangerously close to
Ip. After night or during thick
weather tho old hulk will porve a
constant menace to navigation.

MUCH IS LOST
ON THE CORONA
Wrecked Passenger Boat Hns Not
Been Raised and Contents
The underwriters who have charge
of the steamer Corona, which went
on the rocks In Humboldt bay some
weeks ago, have not yet sold her or
attempted to raise the wreck. They
advertised for bids, but as none of
them went over $ 800 they would not
sell. It is understood the under
writers want at least $12,000 for tho
A sea captain who has seen the
wreck states that the vessel will not
bo worth $100 unless she Is raised at
once. The underwriters have not
even allowed parties to remove their
trunks and other baggage from tho
ship, and the high water has ruined
a great deal of this part of the cargo
that might have been saved had the
owners been allowed fo take It off.
It Is estimated that at least $10,000
worth of freight and baggage has
been ruined by the waves since the
accident. At low water the greater
of tho vessel Is out, but at high water
only the smokestacks and spars show
through the waves.

GIRL MAY DIE
Pecular Case Comos Up tit AValla

Walla Walla, Wash., April 23.
One of the most peculiar cases known
to the physicians of tlhs city for sev
eral years is that of little 12 year old
Irene Sherrod, of the Stubblefleld
Home, who is suffering from an at
tack of hiccoughs, which started
last Friday evening about four
o'clock and has defied the efforts of
several prominent physicians of this
city to stop It for more than a short
time since then. The little girl is
a student of the Berney school, is
very popular among all of the teach
ers and students of the institution,
and Is noted for her plesant dispo

Injured after school Friday evening,
and after a short crying spell, which
lasted until she reached home, she
started to hiccough, which has con
tinued, almost unceasingly, up to the
present time. All of the remedies,
both ancient and modern, that are
known to the physicians, have been
used, with tho exception of an elect-
It Is stated at the Stubblefleld
Home that the little girl came home
crying and that she then started to
hiccough, though whether the hic
coughs were caused from the crying
was not known. This was also veri
fied by Dr. M. M. Stiles, who has
charge of the case, and who also
stated that he had never heard of a
like case before. In speaking of the
case he said: "Although I have
known hiccoughs to prove fatal be
fore, I never heard of a case of which
there was no apparent cause, being
so bad as this one is. We aro doing
nil possible for the girl."
Late this afternoon it was said
that tlie hiccoughs had been stopped,
but it was not known whether the
relief was permanent.
