Sunday forenoon when " F. T.
Miller and a Belgian gentleman
who is in charge of the former's
Buff Orpington farm came to town
when near the Christian church a
freight train passed along in front
of them. Mr. Miller was obliged
to stop his horse and the gentleman
ndmg with him alighted to await
the passing of the train. The horse
became a little fractious and being
blind in one eye did not get a cor
rect line on the train and despite
Mr. Miller's skill with the. ribbons,
the mare pranced into the freight.
In the twinkling of an eye there
was work ahead for a wagon
maker. Mr. Miller , paid no at
tention to "Yump; Miller, Yump"
that was shouted by his Belgian
hand.. However, he escaped with
out a scratch, which was, indeed,
'ucsy to say the least,
Victim of Wreck.
The intelligence of the death
of John W. Harrison was con
veyed to this city by , the Ore-
gonian of Sunday and the many
friends of the -deceased who re
side here were saddened to learn
of his untimely end. He was a
graduate of OAC and his pet
name among all classes of people
in the vicinity was "Peggy."
He was always full of life and of
a genial disposition. After
graduation from OAC he married
Miss Bessie Barker, a niece of
W. S. Linvil e, of this city. He
was a mail clerk on the run be
tween Portland and Pocatello,
Idaho, and the collision of trains
that cost him his life occurred
near Weiser, Idaho, Saturday
morning- The Oregonian con
tained the following informa
tion: Harrison was born at Amity,
this state, July 20, 1873, and
was a graduate of the Agricul
tural College at Corvallis. He
had been in the railway mail ser
vice about seven years and was
considered one of the most popu
lar men in the system. His run
extended from Portland to Poca
tello, Idaho, and return, and it
was while coming home that he
lost his life.
Mr. Harrison left wu addition
to his widow, his mother Mrs.
Addie Harrison, and a brother,
Walter, who resides at 569 Mar
shall street. ""Harry L. Barker is
a brother of the dead man's
widow. Jerry Col well, a well
known local newspaper man,
was also a relative. It is ex
pected that Harrison's remains
will arrive on the train some time
On Alsea Bar.
Saturday a phone message came to
Corvallis to the effect that a steamer was
grounded on the bar of Alsea Bay. Much
conjecture wao hazzarded as to what ship
it could be. Later it was learned ' that
the steamer was the W. S. Harrison, of
Astoria, Or. She was carrying a load of
supplies to the Alsea salmon cannery.
Wednesday the Harrison arrived in
Yaquina Bay from the TJmpqua, after
first having passed the mouth of the
Alsea. A look at the bar as the steamer
passed by convinced the Captain that it
was too rough to be attempted and they
passed on ncrth (o Yaquina. Here the
steamer moored nntll Friday, when she
went to sea and made an attempt to
cross Alsea bai . When off the bar the
sea had moderated to a degree that war
ranted the attempt to make port..
But in crossing the bar the vessel
struck and ' was soon at ". the mercy of
wind and wave. Every .effort on the
part of the crew to get the Harrison off
proved nnavailing. A message was sent
to the lile-eaving station at South Beach,
Newport, and the crew of live-savers re
sponded at once.
When the ship struck a few sailors
left the steamer in lifeboats, but Captain
Hansen and two sailors remained with
the ship. Here they remained all night
and the Captain was taken off at day
break by the life-saving crew. . The two
sailors still stuck by the craft in the hope
of saving some of their personal effects,
but later in the day they, too, ware res
cued. The ship and her cargo are expected to
be a total loss and whether or not there
was anv considerable insurance- or any
at all is not known to us.
