The steamer Charles Nelson, 102 torn,
which departed from Astoria last Tues
day for Ban Pedro, Cal.,wlth a cargo of
726.0(10 feet of lumber, filled In the atorm
of laat wwk off Hecetk Head, 240 mllea
down the coaat, and waa abandoned at
. The 24 peruana eoimtitutln? her
INtnirqni and crew were reacued by
the tuf Bea Hover, which arrived In
(iort Bunday from Ban Fram-laco.
craptaln Thompaon, of the Bea Rover,
reorti that he picked up the hapten
mariner on Bunday irornltij, after
they had been In open bout for 26
houra. The rmrty nhowed the effccla of
lie long exponure to the element, but
ii M were well. The collier Tltanla,
bound for San Franclaco, came along,
and the i.urvlvora were placed aboard
her and taken on to the Hay City.
ActvrdlriK to the etaiemcnt made by
t'fipttiin Oundernon. of the Nelnon, the
lrnM of the vewl waa due to the work
ing ,of the deck load of lumber. On
Thtiraday the atamer ran Into a gule,
which liicreaned In fury a the day
wore on. rmrlng the morning the
Htanclilona that held tho deck load In
place pulled out, opening the aeama in
lli veatel'a decknd the heavy mix
which reviealedly awept the ateamer
niltd Her hold. The two boat were
lowered, and Into thcae the panneiiK'era
re placed . The crew stayed with the
dteiimer until hope of righting her wa
gone, and then Joined the paaaengera.
Captain Ounderwm and 17 peron w
eupled one of the lKata, while the mate
and K t"ritori occupied the aecnnd
Captain Ounderaon reported to Cap
tain Thompaon that the pumpa would
not work during the blow, and that,
when It became apparent the ateamer
could not be kept clear.the deck load waa
ordered thrown Into the aea. Before
the nen could aet about to accomplish
thla reault. the sea awept the lumber
over the aide, carrying away the poata
and opening up the deck. The pumpa
had become choked and It waa lmpoM
ble to keep the hold clear of water.
Then the veaael waa headed Into the
Bea, but he aettled lower and lower and
threatened to aink. Hi-fore the boata
were rowed away from the ateamer
they were provided with provlalon and,
"Our experience," Captain Ounderaon
mild, "waa a terrible one. We remain
ed In the vicinity of the ateamer during
Thursday, night. Friday morning the
veaael had aettled ao low In the water
that we gave up hope of again boarding
her. and atarted down the coast. The
boata kept together. Friday evening
we alRhted a ateam achooner and algn
allcd her. but rhe did not ace u and
panned on. Friday night waa another
terrible one, and we anxloualy awaited
the break of day. About 1 o'clock we
sighted the tug Bea Rover, and to our

ferred tho Nelaon'a passengers and
crew to the'Tltanla and proceeded on
her way to Astoria. At noon on Satur
day the tug sighted the ateam schooner
Aurella with the derelict of the Nelson
In tow. The Aurella had out a small
tow line and seamed to be making poor
headway against tho atorm. It waa prob
able that she would be compelled to
drop her tow. Captain Thompson of
fered to take the derelict from the
Aurella, but the master of the steam
schooner seemed disposed to hang onto
his prUe. The Aurella la bound from
Astni-ia for Monterey, Cal., witn a
of lumber, but will doubtless put
Hnto Ban Francisco If she succeeds In
holding onto the Nelson.

A scrimmage occurred at Hammond
Sunday evening which waa participated
In by John Blew.conductor; hla son, the
brakeman of the faln Clem D Som
mere, marshal of Hammond, and two
passengers, alleged to have been under
the Influence of liquor. The tacts, aq
near as they can be leamed.are that the
passengers mentioned showed a ten
dency, while en route from thla city to
tlu west side, to create a disturbance
that was only surpressed by the crew In
charge of the .train. On arriving at
Hammond young Blew stepped out on
the platform to superintend the unload
ing of freight and waa there attacked
by the alleged trouble seekers. In spite
of the strength of the opposition It was
apparent the young man would come
off victorious, when Marshal te Som
mers appeared and proceeded to sepa
rate the combatants with the Idea of
arresting the man then uppermost, who
happened to be the brakeman. MF. D
Sommers did not appreciate the merits
of the case. Neither did the conductor,
who Juat then mixed In with hla lantern
The lantern came In contact with the
bridge of the marshal's nose, -which put
the officer out of business long enough
hto allow the train to get away. It Is
presumed that Mr. Blew supposed that
he was dealing with one of his son's as
sailants and not an officer of the law,
Mr. De 'Sommers consulted Attorney
Frank Spittle yesterday, but It la
thought that the case will be settled
without taking it Into court.

Astoria After Trying a
CAPTAIN DENOUNCES CREW
Men Kefuaed Duty at a Critical
Ierlod-Oue Bailor Wash'
ed Overboard and
The Prltlsh bark Puna Law reached
port Sunday evening after a trying ex
perience in the gale which raged along
the coaat during the past week. The
vessel lost much of her" canvas and one
of her men, and Captain Nlchol speaks
bitterly of the cowardly action of the
crew, which refused duty at a time
when It seemed the ship would be lost.
The vessel made here way back to the
Columbia river under staysails and
spanker and waa picked up Sunday
evening by the Tatooeh and Wallula
and brought Inside just In time to es
cape the severe gale which raged for
four hours Sunday night. -
Captain Nichoi report that hi vessel
left Astoria November 3, with a cargo
of wheat and flour, for Algoa Bay,
South Africa. The weather was fine at
the time, but the morning of the 4th
opened cloudy, with every indication of
a gale. The wind Increased In velocity,
and during the afternoon the foresail
was blown away. Shortly afterward
the topsiti! was split Into ribbons. The
braces of the main topgallant yard
broke loose onl were so until Friday,
when temporary repairs were made.
Early In '.he morning of the 5th the
vessel went onto her beam ends, the
cariro shifting and giving her a bad lint
t port of about three feet, rendering
her unmanasable In the heavy sea that
was running. At this critical Juncture
the crew refused to go on the forecastle
head and set a Jib to bring the ship up
Into the wind, and, at the height of the
g.-ile, when every man waa needed, five
of the crew deliberately turned In, with
the statement that they did not purpose
losing their lives.
About this time Captain Nichoi lost
the only seaman aboard who waa
worthy the name. The unfortunate
man was Julius Hansen.a German, who
waa washed Into the sea by a wave that
swept over the vessel. Efforts were
made to save Hansen, but proved futile
and he was drowned in a short time.
The seas were running mountains high
and a boat "could not be launched.
Even hod it been possible to put a boat
In" the water, Captain Nichoi says the
I crew would not have manned It.
The ship weathered the gale In safety,
staysails and spanker were set and the
vessel headed for the Columbia, to
which she succeeded In working her
, Captain Nlchol expressed the utmost
contempt for th members of the crew,
whom he denounces as curs and cow
ards.. When the salvation of the ship
depended upon the prompt action of Ihe
men, they flatly refused duty, and at
the height of the gale demanded of the
captain that they be permitted to cut
away the masts. The Duns Law's
masts are of steel and the operation
suggested by the crew would doubtless
have proven an Interesting one for the
men. The vessel presents a dreary ap
pearance, and master and men show
the effects of their terrible experience.
It is reported that the vessel struck
while being towed In Sunday, but no
damage could have been done, as she
crossed the bar at high water- Cap
tain Veysey, Lloyds' surveyor, will be
down from Portland today to make an
official examination of the Duns Law.
Julius Hansen, the sailor who was
lost, signed on at Portland October S
He was an able-bodied seaman, 39
years of age, and gave his address as
Starr street. St. Paul!, Hamburg. Han
sen re;entlly came out from. Germany
with his wife and child to Portland, but
the wife ran away with a saloon keeper
taking the child with her. Hansen be
came Involved In trouble with the sa
loon man, waa arrested anil' sentenced
to 90 days' imprisonment in jail. Cap
tain Nlchol asked him If he wished to
ship and the man made an affirmative
reply, with the result that he took pass
age on the Duns Law. Captain Nlchol
said yesterday that Hansen was the
only member of the crew upon whom he
could depend and he regrets very much
the loss of the man, who was a thor
ough sailor, and the only one aboard
The meeting waa called for the purpose
Of filling vacancies on the ticket but In
stead acted adversely. The action of
the committee la Sue principally to the
fact that men well qualified to hold
city office Will not accept oominaUons
by the club, though their sympathies
art enlisted with the cause It represents

ject, refused the nomination unless they
could be assured of election. This the
committee coull not consistently do,
with the result that there will be no
socialist ticket in the field. There will
be a meeting of the club tomorrow even
trig when the report of the committee
will be submitted. x.
