MOVEMENTS OF THE DAY.
There came near being a marine
tragedy in Astoria waters yesterday
evening just before sundown, and
only the timely intervention . of the
Keating launch Pilot No. 1, there
would have been some unpleasant
records for this issue of the As-
The little motor tender Katie, Cap
tain Bosstrum, in the service of the
Columbia River Packers' Association,
had started out from the Kinney
cannery dock with a load of nets,
, four men and one lady passenger,, to
wit, Captain Bosstrum, S. Marble,
Emil Anderson, John Glomer, and
Mrs. Multainen, the latter going out
as cook for the Sand Island station.
There was a stiff wind blowing and a
choppy sea on, and when well out in
the bay the boat began taking on
water, and the nets she was carrying
got over the side and began to pay
out, causing the boat to heel over to
leeward in a fashion that soon filled
her to a point that was dangerous;
this was made he worse by the efforts
of the men on board to haul it in
again, and in a few moments the
boat was as full as she could be and
stay afloat at all.
The men on board were thoughtful
enough to secure two life-belts on
Mrs. Multainen and place her on the
roof of the engine house, where she
was out of danger in so far as they
could provide for her safety at the
time. Just at this instant Captain
Matt Johnson, of Pilot No. 1, who
was cruising in the neighborhood,
saw the predicament the Katie's peo-
hing isn't good
r.tnrni your moay If jw donl
Bast; t HJ Ma
ple were confronting and went to her
assistance, putting a line on board
and warping her into position to re
duce the danger that menaced her,
and made a straight shoot for the
Leathers' boat yard landing. All the
men except Bosstrum left the Katie
and Mrs. Multainen was taken on
board first of all; the Katie's master
standing by his craft until she should
be beached or docked.
As the tow neared the shore-line the
rope parted and the Katie was again
adrift, and the nets had gotten over
the side again to add to the confusion
of the moment. Bosstrum went over
the side, diving for the line that had
become mixed up with the nets; this
he cleared and climbed back on board
to make fast the second line passed
to him by Captain Johnson. This
held and the Katie was hauled into
safety and the people were landed
without further mischance.
One matter that was noted by all
concerned in this sharp contest with
wind and tide, was that the launch
Chief another of the Columbia River
Packers' boats passed up the river
within easy speaking distance of the
Katie at the moment of worst peril
and never even gave a hail to the
distressed craft nor to the relieving
launch that was standing by her; and
the comments on this phase of the
transaction were not at all compli
mentary from any of the group at in
terest But "all's well that ends
well," so this will probably be over
taken and in due time be forgotten.
The steamer Yosemite crossed in
yesterday afternoon, and went on up
the river without stopping here at all.
She had "her nose in the air"
as she went by; but from
what is reported she will go by a bit
slower on her return trip, for she
will have one of the big Benson sea
rafts on her hawsers when she goes
to sea again.
The dandy Heather, Capt. Byrnes,
was busy yesterday, setting buoys
Nos. II and 6, in the bar channels
outside. She is the only one of the
lighthouse fleet now in port, the Co
lumbine being in Portland and the
Armeria on her way to Alaska.
The British steamship Dulwich
came down the river with an immense
load of lumber on board bound for
Australia, and will probably sail this
morning on the early flood.;

WASHINGTON, D. C. July 30.-:
A number of sheep were recently poi
soned by eating choke cherry leave
while- passing over a driveway across
part of the Mantf National' Forest in
I'tah, and, though sheep driveway
are not strictly part of the the Nation
al Forest range, the government ha
taken steps to prevent further losse
to the sheepmen trom this cause
Members of the force on the forests
will co-operate with stockmen in cut
ting out the thickets of choke cherry
bushes where they grow most dense
ly, thus allowing the shipp to be hur
ricd through them, and in some cases
the driveway will be changed so as
to avoid the thickets altogether.
When the sheep enters this drive
way they are hungry after a long
trip over public highways, which form
almost orje continuous lane between
cultivated fields. They eat the choke
cherry leaves ravenously, though un
ler ordinary conditions they would
hardly touch them. The leaves con
tain prussic acid, and when an ex
animation was made of the stomachs
of several of the dead sheep, and they
were fuond filled with the leaves, the
cause of death was clearly established.
Stockmen throughout the West are
coming more tully to recognize uic
benefits of government ' co-operation
and range control. The whole graz
ing policy is to make the range bet
ter and to insure its equitable use. Re
striction is practised not for its own
sake, but for the good of the range
and of the stockmen who depend up
The ranee has deteriorated under
unrestricted use, and so the govern
ment is making investigations under
the direction of Mr. F. V. Coville, Bo
tanist, Bureau of Plant Industry, De
partment of Agriculture, with a view
to reseeding with better grass. Again,
poisonous plants are often destructive
to livestock, and in this case Dr. C.
D. Marsh, of the Bureau of Plant In
dustry, is conducting a study to de
tect poisonous plants and suggest
means of eradicating them. There arc
also heavy losses from predatory an
imals, but government hunters and
trappers are busy reducing the num
ber of mountain lions and timber
wolves, which do most of the dam
age. Finally, there is the insignifi
cant prarie dog, which selects the
choicest grassy bottoms for its opera
tions, strips them to the, soil, and
ploughs up the ground for its bur
rows. They have gone after the pra
rie dog now, however, and by the use
of effective poison will soon put an
end to this pest.
