Scott Erans, second assistant en
gineer on the ill-fated Tacoma, is in
Portland. In conversation with a
News reporter he said: ''When Capt.
Kortz took his reckoning previous to
turning in, and some twenty minutes
before the boat struck, they were mak
ing oleven knots an hour. As Mr.
Evans was on duty when the ship
struck, he had a good opportunity to
know just what occurred. He says
at the time the captain turned in, the
ship was headed for the shore, and to
many it looked liko a 'put-up job,'
anl tho captain did not in any man
ner seem surprised when ho came on
deck; and in the coolest maimer said,
'Well boys, I guess wo are gone,' and
he soon was gone in the first cutter,
the only boat that was in condition
to be used. Before leaving he said,
'Boys I'll be hero with assistance in
ten minutes," but on reaching the
shore he quietly walked along the
waters' edge and off some six miles,
without making any effort to aid
those on board the doomed ship."

Wo are in receipt of an inquiry
concerning the high prico of wood,
and asking why it is so. The only
reasons we can think of is that people
buy and burn it faster than it can be
brought here, and again, people are
generally at some busmees that pays
better, though if it gets any higher
than the present figures it is likely
there will be increased supply as welt
as reduced demand. Should coal
come down a few notches lower it will
be used by many in preference.
Our citizens will not only consult
their own interests but the interests
of those with whom they arc daily
brought into contact by refusing to
buy from those fellows that peddle
goods from door to door. It interferes
materially with trade, and thero is
nothing made by it. Nino times out
of ten it's a swindle, and the buyer
has no redress. If w all sent our
money away every timo we wanted
four bits worth, the town would go to
the dogs. Our merchants keep a good
stock in every line, and if there
happens to be anything called for that
they haven't got, the fact of asking for

Discipline on an Ocean Steamer.
Nearly two years ago one fine morn
ing I sat on the promenade deck of
the steamer City of Brussels speeding
towards old England. I Baid to the
cantain. who sat neflr me, "if this
boat were suddenly to find it neces
sary to go to the bottom of the At
lantic how many of them would you
expect to save?"
"All of them," said the captain,
somewhat briefly. The captai l was
not a talkative man, but as it was
early and wo had the deck to our
selves I thought I would like to find
out something about whet would bo
dono in an emergoncy. "At n time
like the present, when nearly all f
tho passengera are in their state-rooms,
I suppose the first thing to be done
would be to get them on deck."
"Not tho first thing," answered tho
captain, "but ono of the many simul
taneous things tbat would be instantly
done. Certain officers of the ahip
aro detailed before we ieavc port to
arouse the passengers should it be
come necessary. Each one lias a cer
tain number of passengers for whom
he is responsible, and in time of dan
ger ho has to produce those passengers
at a certain placo on the deck, and
have them ready to go into tho boats.
If you are on deck this time to-morrow
you will sec tho practical working
of what would be done afterwards."
Next morning all hands were or
dered on deck. Each one was prompt
ly and quickly at his place. Even
the tablo stewards had special duties
for this occasion. At the word of
command ovcry move was mado that
would have been required had there
been an accident. Everything worked
as smoothly as if the whole had been
a piece of perfect machincy. For
over ten years this splendid hteamship

night. The disaster came, unex
pected, sudden and complete as a
stroke of lightning.
The foresight of none on the City
of Brussels could have averted it. One
moment the grand steamer rode the
waters staunch and perfect, the next
she was cut almost" in two, and twenty
minutes later she lay a wreck
on the bottom of the ?ea. Short

enough to display the wonderful
discipline of the Inman crew.
