The Tactile Navtgatl:ra Company has
been reorganized and reincorporated
with a number of Portland business
men. among whom are Included Theo

the lortland Flouring Mills Co.. L. A.
Lewis, head of the firm of Allen & Lew

more and Captain Paul Schrader. The
new company will take over the steam
er Harrison, and the Sue H. Elmore,
now building at Supple's shipyard in
Portland, will also be transferred to
the new company.
A first meeting of the directors was
held at Portland on Friday, when ths
following officers were elected: Samuel

wiU be at Portland instead of Astoria,
as under the old administration, and
thus Astoria loses and Portland gains
another Important business institution.
It Is designed, however, by the com
pany, to make special efforts for the
development of the coast trade with
Portland, In which Astoria, as one of
the stopping places of the boats, will
get a share.
The new steamer has been named
after Miss Sue H. Elmore. President
Elmore's eldest daughter. It is espe
Maiiv nriflntt-l to the coast trade and Is
eald to be the largest and staunchest !
sea-going craft ever oullt In Portland. .
The company has In view the con-,
struction of other steamers of even
larger capacity, and it Is probable that .
tho AlMkan trade, also, will be en-
tered next season. It Is, Indeed, be
lieved oy leading Portland business
men that the new company will develop
to be one of the .nost Important trans
portation enterprise ever organized on
the Pacific coast.
The launching of the new steamer on
Saturday afternoon was witnessed by
a large concourse of Portland people,
as well as the families of Messrs. Lewis,
Elmore. Wilcox and other stockholders
of the company. The launching was
generally said to have been one of the
mos successful events of Its kind. In
every sense, that has occurred In the
hiBtory or shipbuilding enterprises In
Tlu following account of the launch
' mg was published In the Sunday Ore
gonlan: The new steamer Sue II. Elmore,
which Joseph Supple has been build
ing for the Pacific Navigation Com
pany, was launched from the builder's
yard on the Eas-t Side yesterday af
ternoon. The affair was pulled off
promptly on time, at 2 o'clock, which
was quite a surprise to the audience,
who are generally obliged to wait an
hour or two after the hour scheduled
for euch an event. Ths Sue II. Elmore
wan built for the Tillamook trade, and
from all appearances is admliably
adipted for the work In v.hlch she will

the owners of the ne steamer. Cap
tain Schrader has been running steam
ers on the TUUmook route for nearly
twenty years, and his familiarity with
the entrance to Tillamook harbor has
enabled him to design a boat which will
mitt all the requirements. The Sue
Elmore will carry a big load of freight
on a sufficiently light draft to enable
her to get In and out with greater reg
ularity than any other steamer that
has even been placed on the route.
There Is a big trade between Tillamook
and Portland, but owing to the bad
condition of the Tillamook bar It has
not been possible to make regular trips.
With the new boat much of this Ir
regularity will be done away with, and
she can come and go In most any kind
of weather. The steamer la one of the
strongest vessels ever built In this city,
but in spite of her strength of hull she
retains line which will give her very
Mr. SuppU has made a fine record
for promptness and good work on the
steamer. The keel was not laid until
May 15, and yet when she struck the
water yesterday her hull was complete
in every respect. As for the launch, it
was as pretty an affair as was ever w it
nessed. The steamer had but a short
distance to run. and she slipped Into
the water on an even keel and remained
in that position, careening neither to the
right nor left, and drawing exactly
the amount of water which the builders
figured on. , The steamer was after
wards shlfte'd over to the Willamette
Iron Works, where she will receive her
Ths Friday evening Telegram also
contains an account of the new steam
er, outlining the purpose of the com
pany, which reads as follows:
Development of coast trade by means
of a regular steamer service out of
Portland is the object of the Pacific
Navigation Company, which has tiled
articles of Incorporation in the county
clerk's office. The incorporators are
Theodore B. Wilcox, L. A, Lewis,
Paul Schrader and Samuel Elmore.
The capital stock la fixed at J50.OOO.
The company's first move will be
to improve the service to Tillamook
and Nehalem. The. new steam schoon
er Elmore, which was launched at Sup
ple's shipyard, on the East Side, yes
terday, belongs to the company, and
will be used In connection with the
steamer Harrison to run to the points
mentioned, giving a weekly service. As
fast as the trade warrants the service
will be Improved.
"A regular service," said Mr. Wil
cox, "will give the people of Tillamook
and Nehalem an outlet for their pro
duce in the open market. Instead of
guessing when thy can get their goods
to market, and doing business In a
haphazard manner, by means of a reg
ular service they can build up a steady
trade. It will give them a chance to
develop their resources and increase
with the Industrial activity and provide
other steamers wnen warranted by the
volume of business."
Tillamook people heretofore have
suffered great inconvenience because of
lack of god, steamer connection with
the outside world. Certain months
of the year It was found Impossible
to leave the place at all. At other
times, the Industrial freight plied
up so rapidly that the steamer
service proved inadequate to handle it,
and the owners suffered all kinds of
delays, and still worse, financial losses,
us thu market valu?s had changed.
The service to other points will al
so be Improved.
COUNCIL PROVIDES NO LIGHTS

The people of Astoria will feel no
small degrie of disappointment and dis
satisfaction over the failure of the city
council to provide -.or the lighting of

at the meeting last evening. There were
unfoundsi and ridiculous reports in
circulation to the effect that an agree

the city council was to enter into
a long-term contract with the West
Shore Mills Company. While a major

Tie Of this city to permit the eonsum
rox&m of such a deal, it wa faille gen
erally hoped and bWleved that provi
sion would be made for lighting the clt
while thousands of visitors from abnml
will be (n our midst.
. The terms under which the West
Shore Mills Cwupany vbulned Its
franchise compel it to furnish lights
to the city upon demaad and that It
must furnish such lights at a cost not
to exceed the regular commercial rates.
The council could, aad should have
called upon the West Shore Mills Com
pany to furnish street lights tonight
and tomorrow night. Such a transac
tion would have compromised In no
way the position of the city In Its fight
against the extortionate exactions of
the West Shore Mills Company. The
city council might have demanded th
servlo for the two ntghta and hud the
company declined to furniBh the ser
vice a most Improbable action--the
franchise allowing them the right to
erect poles and string wire on the
public streets could promptly be re
voked. The council made a mistake last
night. It. has bevn sound in Us atti
tude on the lighting matter In respect
to the question of public economy and
policy, but for the sake of our reputa
tion abroad and the convenient and
pleasure of our visiting friends. It
would have acted more wisely last
night had It provided lights during the
brief period that thy will be the city's

The pastor. In his address, described
the work of the publishing society, and
stated that the collection to be taken
would be for the spread of the gospel
through the missionaries which It sends
cut at home and abroad. This organ
ization was the first to adopt "gospel
cars," and now has six of them, each
capable cf seating 100 people for a ser
vice.,, Thy are comfortably furnished
and each has bene provided with an or
gan free, by the Estey Organ Co. One
of these cars once visited Astoria. The
railroads give these cars free trans
portation, and the express companies
also carry the publications of the so
ciety free, so corporations do not ap
pear to be altogether soulless. The
collection was taken up by two little
girls, the audlsnce responding gener
ously. Little Tressle Morris delighted the
audience with her cute ways In the reci
tation, and especially In the song she
sang. Several other little ones de
serve special mention, as does Miss
Annie Olsen for the excellent rendition
of "John Jenkln's Sermon." The au
dience was thrilled by the rich, full
tones of Mr. Sharpe 'n his solo, "The
Van of Galilee."

IIOBOKEN'S BIG FIRE.
Roports C'oncJrnlng the Enormity of
the Dlsaatrsus Conflagration.
NEW V'ORK, July 2. The partially
submerged hulks of the huge North
German Lloyd steamers Saale, Bremen
and Main lie smoking In the upper bay
and North river, apparently as tho
roughly wrecked as the Spanish cruis
ers that ventured out of Santiago har
bor two years ago tomorrow. Like the
Spanish ships, these German merchant
men hold many dead men within their
Iron sides. A police patrol forbids near
upproach to the sunken steamers, and
warns off the curious, w'ho hover about
In row-boats. Eleven charred bodies
now In the New Tork morgue were
taken from the deck of the Saale, and
divers are expected- to bring up soores
of dead men today.
The remains of the huge North Ger
man Lloyd piers In Hoboken are still
burning, and firemen are throwing wa
ter upon the embers, but nothing re
mains to be ;avid. Charred logs, sec
tions cf planking-' from half-burned
scows and lighters and other wre:k
age aroiilrlftlng ,aJout the upper and
lower bays compelling people to
pick their way with caution, to save
their screw and paddles.
It Is not pos?Ible to state accurately
the number of dead, but the first re
ports of th flr which represented the
st on mors and the pier a containing
many visitors and prospective pnssen-
vers are not borne out by Investiga
tion, and It seems likely that nearly all
of the victims of the disaster were em
ployed In some capacity by the steam
ship company. However, the loss of
life Is arpalllng. Forty bodies hav
been recovered, hundred are missing,
and u estimate of the number of dead
now falls below 500. Of many of the
drad no tiaoe will ever be found, their
bedios having been reduced to ah In
the furnace. It I reasonable to sup
pose that the rescued will report them
elves to-tavy, and tonight' list of mix
ing will Increase the list of the dead.
Nearly all thu moinbor of the crows
had their horn -a In Germany, and new
of the disaster will carry sorrow to
many firesides In the fntherland. No
missing rxtvpt ihwe employed aboard
the steamer have been reported to the
police or to the company.
Most of the estimate of lose do not
fall below IIO.OOO.OOO. It I assumed
that three steamers are almost a total
ls and that the company must pay a
round sum for salvage of thu Kaiser
Wtlhelm dor Orosae. Insurance men are
rejoicing over the fact that the risk
on the steamer were placed abroad.
The lighters and othor small craft
that were loot were Insured by their
owners, niMiy of whom have policies
covering thu cargoes, the Insurance
being for account of all parties at In
terest. The outw.ird-bomul merchan
dise still on the piers at the time of
the 1re w largely covered by float
ing policies In fir companies. The
good on the pier which had arrived
from the other side were In large part
protected ty marine politic. The car
goo of th burned Nrth Herman
steamer were covered by marine In
surance. The warehouses kn-n as Camp
bell's stores, owned by the Hobokoti
Lund A Improvement Company, are
fully Irmirotl In various fire Insurance
companies. The tn-rchandlse In stor
age? Is of very diversified ownership,
and nothing -an be ascertained as to
which companies Insured It. The entire
Ion on property covered by fir In
surance Is about $I,7j0,C00. The North
German Lloyd St-iuimhlp Company's
pl"r and wharves were Insured In fire
Insurance companies for 1300,000, and It
hud also had IIOO.WO in common car
riers' liability for murchandlse on
It Is expected that the owners and
crews ot the tug that pulled the Kai
ser Wllhelm away from the biasing
piers will today file libel for mote
than a million dollar against her. Sal
vage will be claimed, too.upon all the
other steamer that were on fire, but
what the amount will be In the rase
of the Bremen, the Main and the
Saale I entirely problematical, since It
depend upon the success that attends
the efforts of the worker.
When a vessel la abandoned at tea
and a (teamer tow her to harbor. If
the risk waa great, the calvage may b
as high a "5 per cent of the value of
the property saved. Within Sandy
Hook this sort of salvage is not allowed,
but there Is tulvage for fire. The court
will pass upon the claim, and a more
th:tn sixty at.'amrs were more or h-s
concerned In the salvage the litigation
will be Interesting.
Along with the stoiles of heroic res
cue couie others of greed and dlsre
gunl cf human life. Joseph Lupth, n
phlntci employed In decorating the first
cabin of the Saale, wns alarmed by the
cry of fire an 1 runhd from the cabin t
the leck Just In time to see a gnat
she-t -f ftani-j sweep over the forward
part of the vessel and envelop Captain
Morow. who was stnn jlng between the
bridge and the fore hatch, giving order,
to a rnlc-trlkn group of laborers
to batt"-r the hatchi: down. The fire
wrapped around him, and In an Instant
he was crumpled into a shapeless' ma,
falling where he stood. "At that," says
Lupth, "half a dox-n tugs, blowing
their whistles, steamed up toward the
Kaiser Wllhelm, which was lying on
the opposite side of the dock. Sixty
nr-n followed me In a h-.-ip to a lighter
and we began shouting for help to the
tugs that were coming up to help the
Kaiser Wllhdm. Those tugboat men
were too greedy for money to help us.
One of them came up close and threw
out a new Manila line. It fell short
and was hauled aboard again. 'Cant
that line over,' I yell id. The Are from
the Main wan then pouring over our
headB, and the heat wus something
frightful. 'Give us a hand here,' an
other man nhouted after me. 'For

"The captain of the tug paid no at
tention to us whatever and made no
answer. Instead of trying to reach us
with the line a second time he backed
water and got under the prow of the
big ship. We could see hl'm throwing
a small hand line to those on board.
We could not understand that we had
been deserted and thought that our
cries had not been heard. Another tug
came within hailing distance and we
spoke her, but the only answer we got
was 'no time now, will see you later.'
There wore not less than a dozen tugs
close by us then, but no one would oo
anything for us. The hausers which
held the lighter to the Saale burned
through and parted and we drifted out
Into tho stream and floated down along
