Japan With Valuable CargoSenator

and Yosemite Arrive Here.
The marine event of the day, yester
day, was the safe arrival' of the fine
American ahip Acme, Captain J. D. Mo
Kay. 2 day from Kobe, Japan, in bel-k-t,
for Portland, and flying the house
flag of the Standard Oil Company. Two
eaya out from Kobe, the Acme ran into
howling typhoon that put her on her
' beam end and kept her there while it
vxuied the very ballast from the weath
er hold onto the deck. For- 50 hour
the dread tempest raged and the officers
and men worked like Trojana to tave
tor, and had almost made their minds
to abandon her, when the gale shitted
and abated, and gave them the chance
to work for their, and her, aalvation;
and work it waa for six long daya and
Bisrbta, (retting the ballast back to it
flace and th ship on an even keel. Her
topgallant-mute bad been cut away at
the height of the storm, and thia prac
tically put her upper-topsails out of
business, and ahe came over under tower
' topsails and fore and main eaiht and
fore-and-aft sails, and did the ' long
stent in 33 daya. She came up to the
W without a hitch yesterday morning
and by high, noon Captain George Wood,
f the bar pilot service waa on board
and she waa heading in. She reached
let anchorage in the lower harbor about
2:30 o'clock and had reported at the
eoetom house by 4 p. m. She is a fast
hip and in the best of order, and in
the hand of a very able master, and it
ia his just and proud boast that the
Acme, after he had gotten her straight
ened out from the wreck and on her
course, covered 14 knots steadily, day
after day, despite her shortened canvas;
r a performance, equalled by very few
abipa nowadays. No live were lost,
for was anyone injured in the stona off
Japan. The Acme will sail, lumber-laden,
when she leaves Portland, but her desti
nation is aa yet unknown.
