Th - way t hi -placa-was - named 1s
quite an historical event It waa this
way. In 1846 three bovs or young men
of the Kershaw family William.' John
and James atarted across the plains
for the west with ox teams. The boys
were born musicians, each being a fid
dler of some- renown. On the way to
the weft their principal .musical (tern
ass "Dixie Lnd." and many times
across the plains where It had never
before been heard, floated the strains of
th favorite southern sir. "In, Dixie
lnnd I'd tnke my stand to live and die In
Dixie land."
This tune was riddled all the way
across the plains nnd the party of trav
elers gave the name of "Dixie Hots" to
the musical trio. i This name clung to
them snfl when they settled on the pres
ent site of JJlxle the town wse named In
thir honor. Two of the "Dixie Boys"
still survive and on special occasions
fiddle out "Pixie I.and1' to th step of
many young feet at Dixie dance

Mariners Will Keep"a Sharp
Lookout for Boats and
Eafts Off the Coast,
CnptaJn Mason Iveg " Grairfilo Ac
' count of How News of the Wreck
-.' Created Excitement s Among Pas-scngr-r
on Alternating Croft.
y:i,Q.--: : '-.' "
Coasting vessels are keeping a sharp
lookout for life rafts or boats that
might atlH be drifting about on the
ocean and possibly carrying survivors
from th Columbia-San Pedro collision.
Cases have been known -where survivors
havs drifted about for many days, even
in th path of commerce before being
picked up, and mariners ar of the opin
ion that a alight bop may yet be held
out for those who disappeared with the
amp Bunaay morning a wee ago. -
' Captain Mason, master of tne San
Franciaca & Portland Steamship com
pany steamer Costa Rica, which alter
nated wltn tne coiumoia, miu
at all Impossible that one or more
boata or rafta mav be picked up, per
haps with Uvea aboard. - He points to
the fact that when . the Valencia was
lost on the coast of Vancouver island
one boat waa nicked UP aeveral months
after the disaster, although the occu
pants bad died marry weeka before from
exposure. In thla case, however, he
thinks th boats should be discovered
more easily, since the beach south of
where the collision occurred 4a more ac
cessible than the precipitous cliffs thst
break the seas that roll In upon Van
couver island. The Coata Rica, which
arrived here yesterday morning, paaaed
the scene last - inursaay. dui saw no
sign of anything that would cast fur
ther light upon th tragedyr-
On her way aouth the officers and
paaaengers en the Coata Rica looked In
vain for the Columbia, which waa us
uUymtln the vicinity at Jureka.
When near Rtixbury Point a ateam
aohooner signalled tha words "Colum
bia la lost" to the Coata Rica and upon
entering the bay. fuller particulars were
received rrom tne outwara oouna steam
schooner Yosemlt. The news created
great excitement ' and threw gloom
over th happy paaaengers who had
enjoyed a beautiful - voyage from the
Columbia river.
The oil carrying steamers Argyll and
S. W. Porter, v which arrived bare thla
morning from San Francisco, did not
sight any wrrckag off the coast. The
oil j carriers stand further off to sea,
however, than the passenger and gen
eral cargo ahlpa. so they were hardly
expected tO have encountered either
boata or wreckage that might still be
afloat Th 8. W , Porter is at Linn
ton and the Argyll at Portsmouth die
charging oil. . ' .
How md Wynn Will Return ta the
.: Oolden Gate.
Messrs. Edwards and Fuller, inspec
tors of hulls and boilers at this port,
received a telegram thla morning front
Captain John Borm Ingham, supervising
Inspector of the first district 'with
headquarter at San Francisco, recall
ing Aaalatant Inspector How and
Wynn, ;who a few months .ago hirers
transferred to this 'port
The reason for the recall is net
known, and it is hardly believed to
have .any connection whatever with the
Columbia disaster, although both the
Columbia and San Pedro were probably
Inspected by those two gentlemen when
they were stationed at San Francisco.
- Not long ago a system was adopted
calling for the transfer of aaalatant
official a often a possible for th
good of th servlce.when Assistant In
spectors Ames and Weldon were ordered
to Seattle from Portland and How ansi
Wynn sent her from the Bay City.
Ames and Weldon may be ordered to re
turn to Portland. , . , -
