THE DAILY COOS BAY TIMES, MARSHF1ELD, OREGON, THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1907.
Crew Substantiate Story of
Fast Trip Between Port
land and Coos Bay.
FLAT TIME IS 22 HOURS
Captain Mncgcnn Says Run From
Columbia Uur Consumed Four
There is an air of elation among
tho crew of the steamer Breakwater
which mado such e. sensational run
from Portland to Coos Bay, and set
a record for the run of 24 hours be
tween the two places. The actual
time, allowing for delays, was 22
hours. However, the record of 24
hours is sufficient reason for con
gratulation, and the crew, from
Captain to stoker, are all in hearty
accord with the spirit which prompts
the members to do their best in
keeping up tho reputation established
on this, the first run from Portland
to this port.
Captain Macgenn -was seen In the
forward cabin, ana his grin told the
story In detail. To bo certain there
was no mistake, lie was asked if
tho story was true.
"Sure," said he, "we came from
tho Columbia bar to tho Coos Bay
bar, a distance of 174 miles, in 14
hours; that's going some. Quess I'll
go out and see what my friends think
Chief Engineer Henry Young was
seen in tho pit, whore he was busy
looking over tho machinery and over
seolng the clean-up. He also had
tho Inseparable smile. Mr. Young
was quizzed for a time, and despite
tho epidemic of pleasure, was able to
give coherent answers. Mr. Young
informed tho scribe that the ma
chinery stood the run without an ac
cident, and that every bolt and screw
was In its accustomed position. Mr.
Young was asked regarding tho con
sumption of coal during a record run,
and said it required approximately a
much larger quantity than under nat
ural conditions and draft. Ho takes
great pride in having his engine room
present the neatest appearance pos
sible and had tho assistants busy
wiping and cleaning tho machinery
Bort McCulIom, tho popular and
obliging purser, was next scon, and
his story was substantially tho same
as already related. But thoro was
moro to tell respecting tho repairs to
tho ship, and it was readily an
swered. Theso repairs had just
been completed when tho ship mado
hor way from San Francisco north
ward last week. Thoro havo been
eight berths added forward for a to
tal of 92 passengers. Tho boat pre
sents a spick and span appearanco,
being nowly painted throughout, and
tho brass work and othor fixtures aro
kept In tho best possible condition.
Tho bridal chambers forward were
mado over into four rooms, where
before thero wero but two. Tho en
amel work in the forward staterooms
Is green, and that in the rooms amld
shlp, white, tho work being of ex
cellent artistic effect.
The Breakwater has always borne
a reputation for excellent service In
her cuisine, and passengers who came
on this trip say It is being sustained.
Tho run and the boat are certain to
prove a popular means of traveling
between Portland and Coos Bay, for
24 hours is rather faster than peo
ple have traveled between theso
ports. However, not detracting any
thing from the performance of the
Breakwater, it is doubtful If such
running can bo maintained. The In
tention Is nevertheless to hold to It
If possible, and beyond doubt there
will bo another record established
beforo tho summer Is over.
The Breakwater will leave for
Portland this morning at 11:30. She
brought over two hundred tons of
freight on her initial trip.
