Breakwater Soon To Ofger Trans
portation Facilities Between
Here And The Columbia.
TRAFFIC DEMANDS IT
The Freight nnd Passenger Offerings
LVom Portlnnd Arc Increasing
Heavily Every Day.
Captain Macgenn of the steamer
Breakwater announces the fact that
the Breakwater is to be taken off
the San Francisco-Coos Bay run after
making two or three more trips. She
will still call at Coos Bay on her new
run from San Francisco to Portland.
This will mean additional transpor
tation facilities between the latter
city and Coos Bay.
The bulk of the freight and pas
senger traffic for the past several
months, in fact since the San Fran
cisco disaster over a year ago, has
been from Portland, and of late the
transportation facilities from the
north have been entirely inadequate.
The Breakwater arrived from San
Francisco yesterday with a cargo con
sisting of about 150 tons of gen
eral freight and several passengers.
She will sail from this city at 10
o'clock this morning with a general
SCOW HITS MUD.
And Mr. Straw Walks Half a Mile
Through the Mud.
While moving a scow yesterday
with a gasoline boat in Pony slough,
"W. W. Straw had the good luck to
get it hung up on the mud flats. The
scow was stuck about half a mile
from the shore, which necessitated
Mr. Straw's walking out through the
mud and water.

that nil of the citizens will give the efforts of the ninyor nnd council
their heartiest support, ns without it nothing enn be accomplished.
The steamer Allllance will go on
dry dock when she arrives at Port
land this trip for repairs. While
coming down the Columbia the last
trip a sunken log was struck, break
ing off one of the propeller blades.

was a lucky thing that the entire pro
peller was not ruined.
