V the Phantom Ship.
Fears, for the safety of the missing
British bark Iverna were allayed this
morning when Captalrf Morton of the
steamship Columbia reported that Pilot
Woods, -.who- brought the . stea mer. p ver
the bar yesterday morning, told - him
that he had' seen the missing vbark three
times during the past two weeks. 8he
was far out to sea, but everything was
apparently well on board. . At one time
the pilot schooner ran so close to the
Iverna that Pilot Woods was about to
board her,- but a mlsmaneuvertnent
awung the bark around so that the at
tempt failed.- A heavy sea was running
at the time and the pilot would have
taken bis life in his hands had be In
sisted upon following the bark.. . This
occurred a few days ago. . The pilot
schooner afterward stood In for shore.
. The news of the sighting of the- ves
sel was communicated to Kerr,- Clifford
A Co., special agents-for her owners.
who In turn immediately cabled the Liv
erpool office. The owners were becom
ing decidedly anxious because of the
failure of the vessel to reach port, and a
cablegram from them thla morning In
dicated that they had about give ' her

The pilot boat Joseph Pulltxer fell in
company with the Iverna about ten days
ago. according to the statement made
by Pilot Wood a to Captain Morton, a
long dlatance off the mouth of the Co
lumbia river. Like the Iverna the pilot
boat had been driven far from land by
thelrrmcraUi that laaed at tltat
time. ..Twice alnqa then did the pilot
schooner run close to the bark, and It was
upon the last occasion that Pilot Woods
attempted to reach her.. Had the vessel
been short of provisions, word to that
effect would have undoubtedly been sig

for that reason believes that the bark
Is well able to take care, of herself.

that the company pay to the state 10

property to another ' company. Two

being the present owner. No percentage
of the earnings of the locks haa been
paid to the state since . 1878. Judge

the right of the state to collect to the
period since . U7. holding that ithe
statute or limitations barred any re
