HEAVY LOSS FROM DISASTER

Sign ot Missing Schooner
W. F. Uarnis.
The tug Dauntless will reach Astoria
. today from San Francisco for the pur
j,ce of towing the disabled steamer
Grace Dollar to San Pedro. Captain
Otaen has been Informed that he will
be towed to the southern California
port and has made preparations for
"I presume the owners have fljxred
It that they can save money by hav
ing the vessel towed to San Pedro,"
said Captain Olsen yesterday to an As
torian man. "The cost of discharging
the cargo and reloading it, either here
or at San Francisco, would be .uite
heavy, and a considerable saving will
doubtless be effected by towing the
steamer to San Pedro, The tug will
be here tomorrow, and It Is possible I
may get away before the day Is over."
Captain Olsen yesterday filed his
twt rPDort at the customs house. It
makes the following showing:
Estimated value of the vessel.. J60.000
Value of the cargo .4.500
Estimated damage to the vessel. 15.000
Estimated loss of cargo 1.000
The disaster Is attributed to a brok
en tail shaft Captain Olsen said he
estimated the damage to the ship at
$16,000, although It might exceed that
figure or fall below It The. last time
he brought the Grace Dollar Into port
she had a broken shaft but he got out
of the accident at a cost of only $50
and one day's delay here. The shaft
was found to have had a flaw In It and
the Vulcan Iron Works, of San Fran
cisco, was compelled to furnish an
other. The disaster to the Sequoia,
which put Into Astoria In distress in
command of Cartaln Olsen, entailed
considerable loss to the owners. Just
what the present predicament of the
Grace Dollar will cost the cnptaln
would not venture to say. He has con
cluded, however, that when he next
visits the Columbia he will not come
In distress, and his many friends here
hope his prediction may prove tiue.
The matter of salvage has not yet
been arranged between the Dollar line
and the O. R. & N. Co. In view of
the heroism displayed by Captain Reed,
of the Wallula, It is probable the men
on the tug will receive a share of the
safety of which there fe iiw great con
rrn Her disappearance has been
similar to that of the fll-fated Cudiow
Forrest It will to remembered that
at the time of her disappearance slip
ping men ridiculed the Idea, that t.he
u lout but she never again was
seen. The Garros still has a chance,
but there Is no denying the fact tfcat
there ts ample cause for alarm.
USED THE SOUTH CHANNEL.
Captain England Tells How He Came
Into Port Last Week.
According to Captain England, of the
British bark Thistle, whose sensational
run into the harbor during the preval
ence of the gales attracted much at
tention, he did not come in through the
north channel, as reported, but through
the south channel. When his vessel
reached Astoria he reported that all
' the outer bar buoys had been carried
away, which statement was construed
to mean that he had used the old chan
nel to the north. This he emphatically
v The Thistle's master likewise relates
another conflicting story regarding this
trip of his ship. When he came ashore
the night of his arrival, he said he had
been signalled by Captain Matthews
from the pilot schooner to stand oft
shore, and that a similar signal was
displayed by the lightship. This state
ment is denied by pilots, who aver the
schooner was herself far oft the bar at
the time the Thistle undertook her
hazardous passage. The captain Is
quite as positive as the pilots, and the
lncldfnt affords an excellent opportun
ity for discussion.

dalene cleared yesterday for the United
Kingdom, with a large wheat cargo.

No Signs of the Garms.
The long continued absence of the
four-masted schooner W. F. Garms Is
at last creating genuine anxiety in
shipping circles, and the fear Is grow
ing that the vessel may have been lost
during the recent gales. It was more
than two weeks ago that she bhowed
up off the mouth of the river. At th't
time the tug Wallula picked her up
