HOPE OF FINDING
Fear Ill-fated Ship , Has Not
' Been Able to Survive Rough
Weather of Pacific Coast.
LUMBER, SPARS AND BITS
WRECKAGE FLOAT ON SEA I
Thirty Men on Board May Have
Taken to Boats; Small Boat
is Still Reported Missing.
VANCOUVER, Aug. 30. (U. P.)-
Hope has been practically -abandoned
that the disabled Importer has been
able to survive tho rough weather
which has prevailed off the coast of
Northern California. The general
opinion here is that the Importer has
foundered. Tho Canadian Winner,
one of the vessels conducting the
search, holds little hope that the
freighter will be found afloat.
Vessels Continue Search
PORTLAND, Aug. SO. (U. P.)
Hhlpplng men express their' fear that
the Canadian Steamer, Importer has
gone to tho bottom somewhere oft the
Northern California coast. The 30 men
aboard may have taken to boats. Four
vessels, combing tho seas where the
Vessel was last seen, report floating
lumber, spars and bits of wreckage.
Nothing has been heard from the
small boat containing two officers and
nine members of the crew.
Action Taken by Board and
Budget Committee in Joint
Session Assures Reduction.
A lovy of $75,800 for school ex
penses this year has been approved
by the school board of District No. 16
as a result of a joint meeting of the
board and the school budget commit
tee which was held Inst night at the
office of J. It. Haley, clerk of the
board. The amount to be raised dur
Ing the coming year. Is a reduction
from the umount of thla year's levy
which was $10,2o0. The tax mlllage
reduction will be four mills.
K. O. Warner, H. W. Collins, J. W.
Maloncy and James Johns Jr. of the
budget committee were present at tho
mooting, V. H. Nelson, the other ap-pol,-lve
member being out of the city.
Following an organization, as provid
ed by law, tho original cHtlmates pre
pared by the school authorities In
compliance with tho budget law were
Introduced and discussed and adopt
ed, As a result of decreases In mainten
ance cost and availability of an un
expended balance from last year to
gether with" Interest in tho sinking
fund, accumulated In the treasurer's
office, the amount to be levied this
year is only $75,800, as compared with
$104,250 for last year. This reduction
Is possible notwithstanding an addi
tional Item of $10,000 was required to
bo Included In tho budget to start a
Hlnklng fund for the high school bond
The proposed budget has been certi
fied to the school bourd and will be
advertised for three weeks. On Wed
nesday, September il, any voter In the
district who wishes to may hnvo the
opportunity of discussing with tho
school hoard tho budget. This oppor
tunity will be accorded at 2 o'clock In

Owing to the fact that the amount
of the special .tax does not exceed six
per cent limitation a special tax elec
tion wlrt not be required.
