Fire wa dlacovertd In the coal bun
ker of the Pacific Coast Company at
the upper end of the O. R. St N. wharf
at 1213 o'clock thla morning and In
Aftven mlnut-M the entire building waa
In flame and It waa only by the (tren
uou effort of the firemen that the
a barf wa avd. The lorn will aggre
gate In the nelghb?rhxd of H0.OW.
A few mlnuttr after 12 o'clock Officer
Scitem, wh ha the Uppertown beat,
noticed smoke laaulng from the upper
end of the building and thought at
first that It came from the river
steamer It. u. Thompaon, whlcn was
moored along on the river aide of the
bunker. Clo?r Investigation, however,
showed that the smoke wa coming
from the outheaat ?orner of the build
Ing and that spark were beginning to
come out with the emoke. Settem then
wl.letled to Officer Thompson, whom
he had Jut left at the Junction cf the
two beati near the entrance to the O,
It. & N wharf, a that would be the
quickest may of lending In the alarm
Olllcer Thompaon responded promptly
and Immediately turned in the alarm.
In a few momenta compan-a No. 1 and
No. 2 were on the scene and aftr a
brief delay had two streams playing
merrily on the fire. The flames, how
ever, had gotten under tremendous
headway and hopes of aavlng the bunk
er were not even entertained for a
moment, the firemen turning their en
tire attention to aavlng the wharf by
keeping the flames nearest It partially
under control. They were assisted by
the wharf fire hose and also two
stream from the tug Wallula, which
wn fortunately laying in her usual
berth alongalie the dock. -and thus
flue slrenm were kept playing on the
end of the bunker next to the wharf.
The Iremen were working over what
was practically a sleeping volcano.
Situated midway between the two
buildings underneath the planking la
the large gasoline tank used to aupply
the engine at the bunkers, and, al
though it contained but about 30 gal
lons, might have caused a terrific ex
plosion had It become Ignited.
The fire burn?d with a most Intense
heat. So strong In fact that it could
hardly be borne at the roadway aome
two or three hundred feet away and a
bucket brigade of Japs were kept busy
putting out the innumerable biases
that keit starting tip on the railroad
trestle opposite the bunkers.
An engine was called Into requlsl
tlon and soon had the cars that were
atandlng on near-by switches, out of
harm's way. Fortunately there was
no wind and the sparks and pieces of
burning wood shot straight up Into tb'
air, Instead of drifting on buildings
nearby. A few burning brands dropped
on the rdof of (he O. R. 4 N. wharf
but the metal roofing effectually pre
Vented any damage.
The river steamer R. R. Thompson
which had tied up alongside the bunk
ero for the night was gotten under way
as socn as possible and warped out
Into the stream. The tug Wallula
crowded on what steam she could on
shnrt notice and helped with two fair
streama on the blaie.
The North Star which was laying In
side the wharf against the bunkers had
to be pulled down out of the way by
hand, and the Escort No. i was served
the same way. The Sue H. Elmore lay
farther down the dock and was steamed
up ready to leave out If necessary. The
several craft that lay In behind the
dock would have been In a pretty un-
comfortahle position had the wharf
gotton on fire.
It was a magnlflcient spectacle as
the great billows of name rolled
straight upward to an Immense dis
tance lighting up the whole city and
reaching far out over the water, reflect-
ng on numerous fishing boats and
throwing great grotesque shadows and
ever and anon as the fire progressed
one of the hutre bins of coal would burn
through letting the contents drop with
a sullt-n plunge Into the water, sending
up a cloud of blaok nmoke. steam and
parks, and making the whole scene one
of weird grandeur.
The fire companies under the direc
tion of Chief Stockton did some very
creditable work with the circumstances
very much against them. Chief of Po
lice Hallock turned ilreman for the
time and handled the wharf hose like
an old tlrnn-.
The bunkers contained some six or
seven hundred tons of coal and togeth
er with the building, the loss will prob
ably be between $30,000 and $40,000.
The cause of the fire is not definite
ly known but It Is generally thought
that there was some fire remaining
from the Are of last week or else the
water turned on the coal at that time
produced fire damp or sort of a spon
The loss will probably be covered by
Insurance, out a that 19 attended .0

Circuit court convened In regular ses
sion yesterday morning at J:39 o'clock,
Judge McTirld presiding.
In the caae of A. Leberman va, C.
J. Curtl. the plaintiff wa given a Judg
ment by default.
A Chinaman with a string of ftllaaei
a yard long wa arraigned before the
court on the charge of murdr. He I
charged with having killed another
Chinaman with a Hat of name nearly
a long aa hi own, at Booth' cannery
on August 1st. The court christened
Wong Loom lo av confusion and
victim I known by the appellation of
Wong Ark Toy. The defendant wa
given till Monday to plead to the
John D. O'Connor who wa arraign
ed before the court on Thursday on
the charge of assault with a danger
ou weapon and given till yeaterday
afternoon to plead, appeared and waa
allowed to plead guilty to the charge
of almple assault and wa fined 1Z0.
He paid the fine.
Herbert Davie and John 8ulllvan, the
men arrested for burglarizing the Bee
Hive In thl city, pleaded not guilty to
the charge and their trial wa fixed
for next week. They will be given sep
arate trial, that of Davl taking place

day. Some four yeara ago. In fact, on the
21st day of April. ISM, Concordia Brown

cuatody of two of the four children.
In March of this year Mr. Brown re
ported to the court that the children
under his charge were being taken
care of by his mother, who was near
ly W years of age, and not capable of
giving the children proper care. One
of the boys being 111 with typhoid fe
ver at that time and not receiving nec
essary care. In the meantime Mrs.
Brown had remarried and Is now
known as Mrs. Bolander. The court
then ordered that he be given the
custody of the other two children oro-
viaeo. nowever. mat sne comolv with
Mr. Brown's request that the children
be sent to a Catholic Sunday school
and a Catholic day school. It appears
mat the tvtA not complied with that
portion of the order and the case was
brought before the court yesterday af'
ternoon when It was ordered that the
two boy that have been In her charge
since March be sent to Mount Angel
College at Mr. Brown's expense. There
waa a stormy and tearful acene In the
court room when the little fellowa real
Ixee' the Import of the order aeoarat
Ing them from their mother, but they
finally succeeded In manfully keeping
dock tne tears as tney went away.
Court was then adjourned till 9:30
otlock this morning.
