i Yesterday's Portland Oregonian
has the following story of wretched
suicide on the Columbia river, from
the deck of the Name City:
. L, Butler, of Spokane, a saloon
passenger on the Nome City, who
was evidently demented, sprang over
board from the cabin deck about 8
o'clock last night, and drowned be

ed for action. The vessel, which
was on its way to Portland from San
Francisco, was passing Rainier at
' "Butler seemed to be in good
health when be took passage at San
Francisco, but before coming into
the river developed symptoms of in
sanity. Monday night be requested
the steward to lock the door of his
room, explaining that he feared he
would walk overboard in his sleep.
" "Steward John Brose saw Butler in
the act of climbing over the rail and
rushed forward to catch him, bat
failed to rack him in time. Wfcea
the man went overboard the steward
immediately gave the alarm and a
boat manned by the second mate,
steward and two sailors put off to
the drowning man, but their effort
"The body was brought to this
city and taken in charge by the
Coroner. Upon examination of his
clothing the Coroner found several
dollars .in coin and two letters, one
from his mother, Mrs. Mary Butler,
inclosing $50 and a request that her
son should return home. The other
was from Bert Butler, Spokane, pre
tested to be his brother, with address
given at 23 Ash street
"The dead man was about 38 years
of age. Tuesday morning he hacked

For some time, the need of some
definite organisation to foster and
encourage the sport of yachting and
motor boating has made itself felt in
Astoria. In fact, a number of boat
owners have been seriousty contem
plating the formation of some water
front club for the promotion of the
sport and the protection of their prop
erty. A suggestion from Frank M.
j Foulser, of Seattle, secretary of the
j Pacific Intemation Power Boat As
sociation who has been an Astoria
j visitor the past few days, for expedit
es; the formation of such cluo nas
met with universal approval and will
probably take definite form in the
Mr, Foulser's suggestion, briefly
summed np, is the establishment of a
yachting and motor boat branch to
the new Athletic Association, a prac
tice which is common in the east
among similar dubs, like the Chi
cago Athletic Association, the De
troit Country Club and others who
find the addition to these branches
of sport a valuable adjunct He sug
gests that of 40 or 50 boat owners
and enthusiasts should pledge them
selves, My, to the amount of ten dol
lars apiece for the lease of a piece of
waterfront, the erection of a modest
docker house and landing stage andi
the arrangement of an anchorage;
the association shonld be willing to
waive the initiation fee of such sub
scribers and admit them to the privi
leges of full membership merely up
on the payment of the yearly dues.
In this way, he argues, the associa
tion would gain without expense to
itself, members whom it otherwise
could not obtain and in addition be
encouraging a legitimate branch of
sport, particularly adaptable to the
city of Astoria. The waterfront
sportsmen, on the other band would
be getting the privileges of practical
ly two clubs for the price of member
ship in one and would have the en
dorsement and interest of a large and
influential body to back its efforts.
Furthermore, such a club might ul
timately be the incentive for acquir
ing a piece of waterfront property for
amusement purposes, something
hich is becoming, in all growing
cities, more and more impossible ev
ery day. Another advantage of a
common anchorage would be the pos
sibility of maintaining a watchman
for the protection of the boats.
Such sn organization would be the
logical one to take charge of the an
nual regatta and conduct it success
fully. By taking the matter in hand
early in the year, say January or
February, plenty of time would be
allowed to decide upon the exact
number and nature of the events, the
exploitation of such events broadcast
and the building of new boats for
a special class of local competitors.
Mr. Foulser suggests that a small
and inexpensive class of one design
power boat equipped with different
makes of engine of the same rated
horsepower might furnish consider
able Sport for the local men or a
class of sailing yachts similar to the
18-footers which will be racTd on
Puget Sound next summer. Finally
he -urges as an incentive for the for
mation of a local club the advantages
it might procure by affiliation with
the Pacific Internation Power Boat
This association is composed of in
dividual members of various yacht
clubs along the upper Pacific coast,
who are anxious to see the racing
and building and cruising of power
boats extend into every town and
city along the coast that is located
upon or near a suitable body of wat
er. It was started in Vancouver, B.
C, at the close of the first long dist
ance power boat race ever held on
the Pacific and the most successful
in point of number of .entries ever
held in the world. It is officered by
prominent men of the northwest and
its members comprise representative
business and professional men of the
coast cities. The association main
tains a standing comrnitte on rules
and restriction who are constantly
seeking the latest methods of handi
capping and rating and adapting the
best of them for use in local waters.
It acts as custodian for trophies ag
gregating some thousands of dollars
in value which have been extended
by individuals 'for the purpose of
stirring up interest in motor boating.
It lends its support, both moral and
active, to the formation of new clubs
along the coast and the interchange
of the customary yachting civilities.
Already new clubs are in actual
process of formation or contemplated
at Tacotnn,' Anacortes, Qlytnpia
Gray's Harbor, Willapa Bay and oth
er places. Next year at the Alaska
Yukon Exposition in Seattle,' it will
supervise the most varied and ela
fate series of events ever witnessed
on the racilk, covering a period of
neirly two week cruising and rac
ing. Finally, it aims to secure for its
membership, helpful legislation.
The association requires that each
of its members must be a member of
a recognised yacht or motorboat
club. Mr. Foulser is very anxious
that Astoria should be recognised by
the association, first, because there
are some Astoria boats including two
which are being built by Messrs.
Louis Hartwig and Harry Graham,
whose owners are anxious to enter
them in the association events of
next year. Then the aid of the asso
ciation in securing entries for the an
nual regatta would insure the coming
to Astoria of some of the finest rac
ing and cruising boats on the coast
The bearer of an association flag can
go into any of the clubs recognised
by the association and receive all the
courtesies of snchorage, club privi
leges, etc. Finally, it provides ade
quate racing rules for the holding of
local contests and, if desired, can
furnish neutral and competent offic
iats for events of wider significance,
Mr. Foulsers' suggestions have si
