Mariners-Begin to Fear-That-III-fated Bark
., Has Been Lost With All Hands
r: . During Recent storm.
Wr-pitsa Wd4e
" CaDtaln Morton of th steamship Co
lumbia that he had ind. th missing
British bark lverna oft th Columbia
rtver three times while cruising about
In th pilot schooner Joseph pulltser
during the paat two weeks, la now of
tha opinion that It was th Brltlah bark
Oalana h sighted. Pilot Wood did not
know that th Galena had bn wracked
on Clataop beach when ha related hla
. experience to Captain Morton of the Co
lumbia, but learned of the disaster upon
reaching Astoria after he had turned
the Columbia over to River Pilot Know.
Jn aa Interview In Astoria last night
with a Journal representative he eald
he js now positive that the bark chased
by th pilot schooner waa the ill-fated
Galena. The Galena, too. as baa already
been stated In Tha Journal, mas off the
bar for nine days, riding- out tha storms.
... Chased th Bark... .
' Cantaln Wood says ' he chased the
-rk f-4o-tb-nturUjlthJla.flyln
when sbe first appeared, off the bar. But
was unable to gut within distance. The
day before she went ashore he again
gave chase, this time to southward, un
til Tillamook light waa nearly reached.
Both vessels were then close In and
Pilot Wood turned back, remarking that
if the Englishman went further she
yj9jrjraujableto keep off the beach-.-He
saw no more of her, put' Wat not
surprised to bear that she had plied up
on the sands. , .
This leaves th lverna mystery as
puasllng as aver with even v slimmer
hopes for her safety. SKe has now been
missing for mora than a month, tha last
seen of her being on October If, when
she parted company with the-French
bark Sully In the vicinity of Tillamook
rock. She stood out 14 sea In order to
avoid being caught ltf-the current that
Sent the four-masted barks Peter Ire
dale and Galena to their doom. A four
masted bark In ballast waa seen a few
daya later by the lookout at North Head
and be at one telegraphed to Astoria
for a tug. - THe Wallula went out. but
had to return alone tha following day,
'. tha big windjammer having outdistanced
her in a race to seaward. Since then
not a sign has been seen of the phantom
bark. .
. Offer Solution. .
: Shipping men. looking Into the matter-with
all seriousness, are unable to
offer any solution whatever to tha pus- Oolllnrswood would un
doubtedly try to reach port In order to
save hla charter, which expired last
Thursday. But still , the sticks of the
missing bark fall to loom up within the
scope of the powerful glasses of the
lookout at North Head. The telescope
In the tower covers the ocean for a
radius 6f 10 miles or mora, and yet It
has been unable to bring the white
wings of the lverna Upon the horlson.
Twenty miles is considered a safe dis
tance from shore at any time off the
mouth of tha river and for that reason.
It Is argued, the bark must have been
either disabled or wrecked by one of
the recent gales. 8he was possiDiy dis
masted In ona of the earlier blows, and
rendered unable to Weather the eubse-
quent galea In ber .crippled condition,

over the disappearance of the bark.
They cabled their special agents nere,
Kerr, Glfford Co.. yesterday that they
fear th worst has happened. Unless
shs shows up within the next few days
th lverna will b a fit subject for the
reinsurance gamblers, and it la predicted
that the rate will run VP with leaps and
bounds when ouce on the boara, , ior
every day will . greauy reauc me
chances of her ever reaching port. An
other fw- weeks and herfat will be

bark Drumcrsig which left Portland on
the twenty-second of September. 105.
for Manila without having been heard
from since. The Drumcralg was caught
In one of th October gales off th coast
and th most, plausible theory la that
he turned 'turtle and went down with
ail hands. That she encountered a se
vere gal off the mouth of the Colum
bia river Is known wits certainty, be
cause the barkentin Koko Head, upon
reaching port some time later, reported
having paased through . a most severe
blow in the vicinity Where the Drum
cralg was certain to be If sbe followed
th course usually taken by vessels
bound for her destination.
Th revenue eutt'er Thetis, which
started on a hunt for th lverna last
Wednesday, has not' yet returned and It
Is doubtful in the minds of many If even
this extreme measure will servs to solve
th pussl. .

Dr. Ralph C. Matson, bacteriologist of
the state board of health,-last evening
told th Oregon Academy of Science,
assembled in the city ball, how th
treatment .discovered by Captain Ross
of the India medical service has .vastly
altered all preconceived Ideas of leprosy.
He also told how he and his' brother.
Dr. Ray Matson, bad manufactured lep
rolln from -the -sores-of th Chinese
leper whose presence three months ago
so disturbed the residents of the King's
hill neighborhood. The old Chinese,
who contracted the disease in China,
Is now being treated on the county farm.
He occupies a shanty by himself, and
the effect of the leprolla Is betng eager
ly watched. 1 ; ;
BtereoDtlcon elides showing the bao-
terla colonies on cultures and also in
the blood vessels were thrown upon a
eoreen. Hawallans and Hindoos suffer
ing from extreme cases of the disease
were vividly portrayed. v "
Th disease has been spread because
to let It be known that a person ws
suffering from it meant Isolation," said
Dr. Matson. "These people have been
confined without any right . whatever.
It has been proved that leprosy Is not
an incurable disease, and that in Its
early stages It can be cured as-easily
as tuberculosis and by similar methoda."
Is Carious Disease.
Dr. Matson told what a curious dis
ease It la. Here are .some instances;
Chlndren of leper parents do not neces
sarily have . the disease. A nusbana
and wife rarely both hav it. on
Chines woman had thr leper hus
bands one after the other and never
contracted it. Leprosy is primarily a
disease of filth and poor food, though
a king one died of It.
In Iceland, where there are many
cases, parte of the body not covered
by clothing, such as the face, are the
only portions attacked by the disease.

leprosy always follows war and pes

sically Impoverished and less able to
withstand the asssults of the germs.
These germs may live In the skin for

contact with chlorine or any of its
salts, such as common salt.

When this Is Injected the living germs
cannot abide their presence, immediate

bacteriologists who have made it '

Matson said that the theory that fish

Another historm old windjammer has
been purchased by Portland capital and
thle port will now boast of having two
notable lumber droghers registered her.
William T. Carroll, who recently bought
th old favorite bark Ceioma, yesterday
purchaaed the equally old and historic
American bark Aldan Bess. The, bark
la .now on rugei souna loaaing iuraur
for San Francisco, but ah I expected
to come here as soon as her- present
ohartar expiree. '
The Alden Bess Is on of th oldest
craft . afloat on th Paolfla and she Is
known almoat everywhere, for there are
few porta of Importance at which ah
has not touched at-om tlm or other. J
She was once upon a tlm engaged In
freighting between this port and Hong-
kong, as did th Coloma, and many
storl-rs yet being told along th
waterfront of how she did a landofflce
business carrying Chinese, dead and
alive. 8 he carried live Chines coming
this way and tha remains of deceased
ones returning to th orient. Frequent
ly ah would hav quit a lot of caskets
on board, for In those daya tne ooaiea
of departed Celestials wsre shipped snore
often than th bonee, as Is now th sys

There Is said to be a growing interest
In marln matters her and men with
capital are seriously considering build
ing several steam schooners (or tne

Captain Peterson rcporls having had
a fair voyage from tne (.aiirornia.porc
to the Columbia river, but he ran into
thick weather, off the bar and had to
lay -outside from Wednesday morning
until Thursday morning. A gale sprang
up and It was about all th big freighter
could do to hold her head to th seas.
Her engines were turned to their ca
pacity, and yet she made barely per
ceptible headway against the seas and
wind.. By hanging clo to th light
ship th steamer was ready to cross
in as soon aa conditions became fa
vorable Thursday morning.
The Jethou carries a Norwegian crew
numbering SO all told. She signed the
men at Antwerp, from which port aha
brought a cargo of cement and building
material to Port Los Angeles. She waa
fortunate In meeting with good weather
all the way from Europe, th storms
off Cap Horn even subsiding In her
path. Other steamers that doubled the
Horn about the same time reached port
with tales of awful hsrdshtps and close
escapes from, total destruction, yet the
Jethou hardly shipped a sea on the en
tire passage.
Captain Peterson is Veil known here
ss the former master of the Norwegian
steamer Norman Isles. The tatter ves
sel was here a few months ago and
took a lumber cargo to the orient Sh
Is expected to return here soon.
