PASSENGER ON ROSE CITY
MEETS AWFUL MISCHANCE
NICOMEDIA IN FROM CHINA
LONG LIST OF MARINE
As a result of a reckless attempt to
board the steamship Rose City as she
was getting underway for Portland at
3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, John
N. Stadmen, a second cabin passen
ger, lies crushed and disfigured at
St. Mary's hospital in this city, un
sder the professional care of Dr. J. A.
Fulton, who declares the man to be
in a very dangerous condition. Stad
men and a fellow traveler had been
tip in the city on a sight-seeing tour
during the three-hour stay of the
steamer at the O. R. & N. piers here,
and as they hurried back in obedience
to her departure whistle, found them
selves all but left. They broke into
a run, and as the ship was moving out
from the docks sought the nearest
point of contact, which happened to
be the stern which was close in as
the bows Swung out into the chan-
Stadmen's friend made a flying
leap and landed securely on the quar
r ArV tint tnrtmen climbed on the
heavy nest of dolphin" at the north-
west corner of the dock, and as she
got well in tried to reach her with
his hands, missed her, and fell off the
dolphins, lodging squarely on a heavy 1
rope-fender which was outboard at
that point. The great ship caught
him and rolled him around the face of
the dolphins and when he had passed

on the line from which the big tender
was suspended. This was quickly
hauled on board with Stadmen hold
ing bravely on and in a moment more
he was tenderly lifted over the rail
and laid on the deck while "all hands"
did what first occurred to them by way
of "first aid," fans, fresh-water, etc.,
Capatin Kidston had the steamer
lined up in her course up the bay by
this time, and when the case was re
ported him, he brought" her to a
standstill and blew a signal for a
shore launch , but as this was nqt an
swered at once he "wore ship" and
headed back to the dock. As
headed down stream, Captain Keating
met him with "Pilot No. 2," and run
ning alongside the big liner, he was
charged to take the injured man
ashore and turn him over to Agent
Geo. W. Roberts, the company's rep
resentative here. As the Pilot ranged
alongside the dock Mr. Roberts 'sent
in a hurry call for the hospital ambu
lance and it was soon on the dock.
In the meantime, Stadmen, who was
lying on a stretcher on the roof of
the Pilot's engine rom, had asked
for the fraternal attendance of a
"Forester," and the word being Pass-
ed in the crowd, Frank Hart, the well ( brothef jn thg recent raiway gmash.

tional and bore no sign of his fearful
grinding, save that his face was
frightfully congested with blood forc
ed there by the impact; he com
plained of his back, but had free use
of his hands, legs and feet; his eyes
being swollen shut by the deluge of
blood in the head. He made known
his fraternal affiliation with Court
Xumber 8922. Foresters of Am
erica, of Sonoma, Cal., and was
glad that he had fallen into good
hands here so quickly. He was plac
ed in the ambulance and slowly driven
to St. Mary's hospital where the good
sisters, with Dr. Fulton, at once did
everything possible to bring him com
fort. Stadmen's injuries are all, ap
parently, betwen his neck and hipsy
his collarbone is broken, as are sev
eral lower ribs, close in to the spine
and his back is badly wrenched. Just
what serious internal injury he had re
ceived must be ascertained by direct
and prolonged examination; but what
may develop from that, will not alter
the fact that he is badly hurt and
marvelously short of a mortal acci
dent. He is a well built man of about
40 or 45 years, pleasant-faced and evi
dently used to hard work in the open
air; he had letters and papers on his
person that indicated good standing
and pleasant social relations and $35
in coin. After he had been put to
bed at St Mary's he seemed to sink
into semi-unconsciousness and little
or no further information could be
secured from him. Mr. Hart saw to
the. correspondence by wire and let
ter, asked for by Stadmen, and his
friends at home, in Portland, and in
Court No. 8, Foresters of America, of
this city, will see to it, that everything
possible is done for him in any issue

The meeting of the special commit

It was expected that the proposi
tion would be one for the manufac
ture of high-class cheeses, but' the
committee tmon investigation find
that in all likelihood the highest prices
to the milk producers can be paid by
a milk condensing concern, and for
that reason it has been considered the
part of wisdom to make this a milk
condensing instead of a cheese propo
Dr. Barr and the two committee
men who will worK with mm in
financing the proposition will ascer
tain to the best of their ability how
much milk can be secured and the
condenser will be built to a size com
mensurate with this data.
The committee has gone far enough
in the work to say that there win
probably be no trouble whatever in
financing the proposition.
At the meeting yesterday afternoon
there were oresent C. T. Rogers of
Detroit, Mich., and 0. L. Bermett of
Los Angeles, Cal., who will be more
or less interested in this proposition.
Mr. Bennett stated that a certain
sum of money which he mentioned
would be invested in the enterprise
and it is quite likely that Mr. Rogers
will also take stock in the concern.
The specialist who is to arrive here
from Germany to take the manage
ment will also have considerable
Chairman Barr has not yet deter
mined whether he will incorporate
the project now or when the stock
has been subscribed.
One of the important problems
which Dr. Barr and his sub-commit
tee will have to consider now is the
ite for the condensing plant.
The most important feature of this
proposition is the colonization por
tion of it. The technical man from
Germany who is to locate here and
ave charge of its operation, will on
s own initiative and at his own ex
pense .endeavor to colonize 50,000
acres of the choicest dairy iana in
Clatsop county. The dairy farmers
that he will put on this land will be
brought from Germany.
Those present at the meeting yes
