SILENCE AS TO THE STETSON
Jane L. Stanford's Crew Paid Off
Full Columbine Leaves Out on
Four-Day Cruise This Morning
Odds and Ends oa Docks
There is something peculiar in the
absence ' of all definite news from the
steamer J. B. Stetson, which went into
San Pedro on Monday last, "slightly
damaged" by her collision with the bar
kentine Jane L. Stanford off this port
last Tuesday. It is quite natural for
her captain to keep mum about hi ex
periences, but it is reasonable to expect
that the reporters would get next and
send out some particulars. They are
badly wanted up this way. When the
truth is known it will be that the Stet
son is a badly crippled boat, for no
craft could take the raking she got
from the Stanford and go into port in
any sort of condition to maintain com
plete silence over.
A nice, quiet little fire was started on
the old trestle in front of the Lurline
dock yesterday, and was put out by
Agent Charlie Fowler. It had made a
good char on the rotten wood and was
getting ready for business. It did not
amount to much, but having caught
from the burning stub of a cigar it goes
to show what might happen at an odd
hour when passersby are infrequent.
The United States cruiser Boston left
San Francisco on Monday morning and
is due off the Columbia bar sometime
this afternoon, and probably late this
evening. The pilot boat has been ap
prised of her sailing and is on the look
out for her. Captain Peterson is down
here waiting for her, and she will pro
ceed directly to Portland to join the
The first barge load of ballast from
the barken tine Jane L. Stanford's eighty
tons, will be hauled out this morning by
the Callender people and form the in
itial load in the new seawall of As
toria, as the stuff will be placed under
the trestle of the Astoria & Columbia
River Railroad Company, at a point to
be selected by the company.
The steamer Telegraph arrived down
in good season yesterday afternoon and
among her passengers were Mr. and Mrs.
M. P. Callender, the parents of Charles
H. Callender, of this city, whose guests
they will be for several days.
The crew of the Jane L. Stanford was
paid off yesterday at the custom house,
the sum required to square the ac
counts being $1001.53. The more the
The barkentine Amazon came down
on the tow lines of the Harvest Queen
late yesterday afternoon, and will leave

of her schedule in getting down yester
day, and went back at 7, with plenty of
people and freight.

BRICK BUILDINGS ARE SAFE
Afttr Investigating Earthquake Damage
oa Brick Buildings Japanese Archi
tect Says That Cheap Mortar
Was Cause of Wrecking.
SAX FRANCISCO, June 19.-"Dis
honest mortar a corrupt conglomera
tion of sea sand and lime was respon
sible for nearly all of the earthquake
damage in San Francisco." says l)r. T.
Kakamura. professor of architecture of
the Imperial Universiuy of Tokio and
one of the mot distinguished member
of the committee dispatched to this city
by the Japanese government to invest!
gate the effects of temblor and fire.
After investigations covering a period
of weeks, Dr. Xakamura has completed
his labors and will sail on the Korea
Wednesday to report his conclusions to
"I find." said Dr. Nakamura jester
day. "that much of the damage to San
Francisco from the earthquake was due
to poor mortar and faulty construction,
and the greater portion of the damage
to the class "Z" buildings by fire was
the result of misguided use of hollow
tiling and so-called fire blocks instead
of concrete. It is an easy matter, I have
found, to design a building that will be
not only earthquake proof, but practi
cally fire proof.
"There has developed as a result of
the earthquake in San Francisco, great
prejudice against brick buildings. How
ever, they are largely employed in
Japan, where earthquakes of greater se
verity than the one experienced in this
city are not uncommon. The secret of
their success, however, lies in the fact
that good mortar is used. The mortar
should either be composed of one part
cement to two parts of sand or of one
part cement, three of lime, and five of
sand. The bricks should be thoroughly
wet before being laid, and when the
mortar has set under these conditions,
a wall becomes practically one stone."

WASHINGTON, June 19. The house
committee on interestate and foreign

New Yellow Fever Regulations Will Go
Into Effect Shortly.
NEW YORK. June 1!.-J)r. A. II.
Doty, health officer of the Tort of New
York, said yesterday that the new quar-
antine regulations affecting Cuban ports
will go into effect on Saturday next and
will be enforced to the litter. Under
these regulations all passengers on the
steaships for Havana and other Cuban
ports must on arrival, produce certifi
cates, showing that they are immune
from yellow yever. Their failure to do
so will mean that they will be held for
observation until five days huve elapsed
since their departure from Cuba.
The new regulation is intended to
keep yellow fever out of our southern
states," said Dr. Doty. "For instance, a
person with the fever in his system, may
come from Havana in three days, and if
allowed to land can. by taking a fast
train, be in New Orleans before the
expiration of the five-day limit. Hence
the necessity for keeping all but im
mune under observation for that period.
New York is of course in no danger, for
there are no yellow fever mosquitoes
here. It is different in the South, how
ever. We have got to protect that sec
tion of the country and that is exact
ly what the new regulation is intended
CHICAGO, June J9.-The threatened
freight handlers strike, which is due
next Thursday, according to the union
schedule, yesterday a-sunied a puzzling
aspect. While the men suddenly dis
played faith in reported peace signs the
railroads busily began preparations for
Strike breakers and special watchmen
were bi'ing hired at several detective
agencies during the day. No attempt
was being made to cover up the plans
of the road in this respect. Notwith
standing these activities on the part of
the railroads an optimistic feeling per
vaded the atmosphere about the union
headquarters. It was reported that
some of the roads were considering an
advance of wages to the men.

ROCKFORD, 111.. June 19.-Mis Edna
Brown, daughter of former Mayor E. W.
Brown, fell from the top of a bluff over
looking Rock river to the rocks below, a
distance of 127 feet, and escaped serious
injury. Miss Brown, who was a student
at Stanford University when the school
suffered the big earthquake, has been
entertaining western friends since her
return from the west.
With a party of friends she attended
a picnic on the summit of the high
bluff. While arranging the luncheon she
approached too close to the edge, the
rock crumbled and precipitated her to
the rocks lielow. A small tree jutting
out half the distune,- down caught her
clothing and broke her fall somewhat.
Still farther down a small shrub caught
one of her slippers and tore it from her
foot, thus breaking the force of the
fall. She was badly bruised and
scratched, but no Umes were broken.
