Officers and Crew of Steamer Cat

Give Testimony Before Inspectors
Edwards and Fuller, wrrr -
From -the' evidence produced at the
Investigation of the Cascade-Lrtirllne
collision before Inspectors Edwards and
Fuller It is evident that had the Lurllno
sank a few feet from where she went
down many of the 20 rarcergera would
litre bvcn carried "mil U death,, and
perhaps some of her crew would have
met the' same fate. Luckily the craft
, backed "away from the deep channel
during the three mlnutea tha she re
. ma'.ned afloat after . the crash., so that
whtn she eettlvl vn the river bed her
. cabins were partly above water. This
..made the rescue of the paaaengora com-
paratlvely easy.. ',"
- Officers and deckhands of the steamer

were stopped when the. fog wbls
' ties of the 'approaching craft were
heard.. Then -the" steamer drifted onto
K T iirlln. I . . . - ... i - ' ' ;
All -witnesses agree -that there -.waa a
"dense fog at the time; yet lights from
shore- were discernible, although not
.' plainly. Pilot Barton says that aa soon
as th light -of - th Lurline became
vtalbie tha Cascade's englnea were re
versed, but It waa too late, for half a
minute later the two boata were wedged
and the Limine filling rapidly.
Una Investigation will probably be
concluded tomorrow, but a deolslon wui
: not be rendered for several days, as the
evidence will have to be thoroughly eon
sldered by tha Inspectors. It la being
.... taken down In writing. ,
though tha men may have been signed
anywhere. In this instance the men
were signed" on at Newcastle, Australia,
for. tha run across the ocean, none of
them wishing to tie himself down for
the long run around the Horn to Europe.
Those of the crew who have found the
vessel suitable have the privilege of re
ahlpplng, but tha majority of them will
remain here until they see a good
chance to return borne on some lum
ber carrier. '...-.,. ,
Moat British sailing vessels In the
harbor have lost their crews, the men
wishing to try their luck ashore for a
while, although It la ten to one that In
a fay months a liberal percentage of
them will again be found In the fore
castle of some windjammer. Work is
so plentiful that the sailors can fall Into
Job about tha moment they . step
ashore and the approach of the holi
days also acta as an Incentive to draw
them from their old, haunts and hash-
board.. The French sailors are less
roving" and few of them desert. The
observance of stricter . rules on the
French vessels also tends to keep the
men from deserting.

machinery, consisting of two brooders,
' one bone mill, one incubator and three
packages of poultry food. With this

- among the natives of the Islands of the
mikado that future ' orders of - much
greater magnitude will be received here.
' a box of sturgeon bones also adds va
riety to tha cargo.
Word waa received from Tokohama

Mrs. H. A. Fletcher of ( Blodget
street, Manchester, N. H., Is living evi
dence or the truth of this statement.
She says: "1 received a shock of aa
apopletio character. It was eo severe
that tha sight of my right eye was af
fected, causing me to see objeota double.
I waa confined to my bed about four
weeks,', at one time being told by the
doctor that I could not get well. When
I. could leave my bed I waa In euch a

then go back to bed and sleep from

"I had been under the doctor's ear
for six weeks when my sister, Mrs.
Loveland of Everett, persuaded me to
try Dr, Williams- pink Pills for- Pale
People. I began taking tha pllla with
the result that I soon experienced relief.
One night soon after taking them I lay
-awake only a short time and the next
jilght I rested -welL From that time I
slept well every night and soon got well
and strong. I ' have recommended Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills a number of times,
and my niece has taken- them for weak
nerves and poor blood and found them
very beneficial. " j
Dr. Wllllame' Pink Pills are not
one thing and they do It well they a
tually make new blood. .They euro
nervous disorders because the condition
of the nerves depends upon .the number
or red corpuscles in the blood, and Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills Increaae the num
ber of these red corpuscles. By this s
tlon on the nerves, through the blood,
they have cured many severe nervous
troubles, headache, neuralgia, and sci
atica aa well as diseases of the blood
such as anaemia, rheumatism, pale and
sallow complexions and many forms of
weakness. All ' druggists sell Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills, or they will be sent
by mail postpaid, on receipt of price,
