Saturday about 3 o'clock the big Brit
ish bark Swanmore, Captain Green-
halge, 17 days from San Francisco, In
ballast for this port arrived off the
mouth of the river in the vicinity of the
lightship. The tug had gone Inside and
the pilot boat was nowhere to be seen,
so taking advantage of a gentle breeze,
blowing off-shore, the bark stood to
sea In a southerly direction. When
night came on, with It came a dense
fog, and soon the bark was enveloped
In a cloak of darkness that It seemed
light would never penetrate. The wind
died away to a dead calm, and the ves
sel was left drifting helplessly on the
waste of waters. It was Impossible to
tell Just how far the bark was off shore
when the first hours of the morning ar
rived, and the fact that a heavy shore
swell was known to run In this vlcln
ty, caused the captain no little alarm.
A vigilant watch was kept on deck,
and about 2:30 on Sunday morning the
cry of breakers from the man at the
wheel startled everyone on board. The
sound of the foaming waters on the
beach grew louder so quickly that It
nearly froze the blood In the veins
of everyone on board, for an Instant.
Then, without wasting any more time
the starboard anchor was dropped In
about 20 fathoms of water and 36
fathoms of chain run out. Here she
held until 8:30 when a breeze sprung
up, and quickly slipping her cable,
headed off shore with all trails set. She
made about eight miles when a dead
culm set in and she began to drift
There Is nothing that strikes the
sailor's heart with dread to much as to
hear, In the dead of night, the roar
of breakers on the beach. Darkness
adds volumes to the awful noise, and
so it was with the crew of the Swan
more Sunday morning when the omi
nous sound reached them of the waves
breaking furiously on the rugged walls
of Cape Falcon not more than a thous.
and yards away. Daylight had dawn
ed, and with It came a breeze that had
carried them out of the very Jaws of
death Into a place of apparent safety,
and now to nnd themselves drifting
Helplessly back towards that .awful
spot again, was enough to cause des
pair to come Into every soul on board.
On and on they drifted, until finally
the dull roar of the breakers was again
plainly audible, but fortune favored
them before they reached the first
foaming line.. A breeze filled the sails,
and away surged the great vessel, a&
If ollvo to the fact that danger was
at her heels. The breeze stiffened, and
cheerful air prevailed among those I
on board at the prospects of getting
plenty of searoom before another calm
night set In.
Fate seemed against the : Swanmore
and tho crew, for when a fun of about
ten miles had been made, the wind
died, even more suddenly than before,
and the big spread of canvas flapped
lazily with the rolling motion of the
essel. Thoroughly alarmed again,
Captain Greenhalge gave orders to
prepare the boats and be in readiness
should they get Into the breakers and
strike, to cut loose from the bark and
attempt to make the shore. Clothing
and other articles of value were placed
the ship's boats and then" the help
less crew awaited their fate. Nearer
and nearer the treacherous ground
swell carried them Inshore, and after
few hours, about 3:30,' tho familiar
sound of the breakers hidden by the
fog, could be plainly heard. It seemed
ages to the terror-stricken' crew, as
ey slowly but surely drifted Into
what seemed certain destruction to
their vessel, and probable death to all
Louder and louder the awful roar
became, until finally the first long line
if foaming surf was visible through the
fog. Each succeeding Bwell carried
them nearer, until finally amidst a
'errlble roar, the bark went over a
big green comber, and the frantic crew
crew knew they were Inside the line
where but little hope was left them. A
few minutes more, and two lines ot
breakers could be counted outside the
ipparentiy doomed bark, and the In
shore view of foaming waters struck
terror to all on board, among whom
tfere two ladles.
Little did the captain and his crew
jf brave sailors know, at- this critical
moment, that coming down Upon them
through the fog bank under a full head
it steam, was a little steamer that wnt
o ultimately prove their savior. The
Harrison, with Captain Schrader. and
Pilot McNeill on board, had crossed
over the Nehalem bar at about the
time tho Swanmore had sighted the
first breaker, and seeing her masts
from which distress -signals were fly
ing, looming up above the fog, they
mad9 toward her under a full head
of steam. It would be hard to describe
the Intense Joy with which the crew ot
the bark greeted the first sound of
the Harrison's whistle.
As soon as the little steamer came
longslde a slee.1 hawser was thrown
out ana nastily secured. Then the
struggle fur life began. Faithfully the
Harrison s engines worked, each turn
f the wheel slowly driving them away
from the howling surf, that seemed to
foam and plunge and swirl with anger
at the thought of losing their costly
victim. Once In a while a great swell
would lift the little steamer up on Its
crest, and then drop It so suddenlv
hat It seemed her very timbers woulo
he shattered by the great strain on the
hawner, but she Invariably recovered
herself ami went fuithfullr at hir
work. Thcri cime a time, howovrr i

The Harrison Immediately headed
for the Columbia River, arriving In
yesterday morning, at an early hour.
The tug Relief was at once notified
and hastened outside, where sha picked
up the bark and towed her 4nslde, ar
riving at anchorage off the waterfront
at 1:30 p. m.
The captain of the Swanmore, It is
said, claims that he made a bargain
with Captain Schrader for $900, but
this the latter gentleman maintains is
not no. He says there was no time
for bargaining, and that he took the
offered hawser of the Swanmore with
out a word. Whether the matter is
settl 1 out of the courts or not, Cap
tain Greehalge Is to be congratulated
that '.ie saved his vessel, together .with
the I ves of his passengers and crew.

Oregon's Great Seaport.
The prediction of shrewd old John
Jacob Astor Is about to be fulfilled. The
city of Astoria, Oregon, Is about to
become the greatest seaport nnd me
tropolis of Northwestern America.
Its location and resources have aU
traded the attention of capital, and It
is today thj best, field for the Invest
ment of motley, brains and muscle on
the American continent.
This "Largest civilized city In tho
world without, a railroad," is to exper
ience the impetus of a connection In
different directions with two 'of the
greatest continental railway systems.
Astoria's harbor advantages (the
best on the whole Pacific Coast) are
now understood and appreciated; Its
fishing interests (already paying to the
hands employed in the salmon canneries
alone over $250,000 of wages ench
month) are to be augmented by the
Investment of outside capital and the ,
erection of large and latest improved
plants. The immense forests of Ore
gon pine surrounding the city ure to
be converted into lumber for the Aus
tralian, Chinese, .Tapunose, and South
The great coal fields within a few
miles of the city are to be Immediately
opened, and the product thereof shipp
ed In every direction.
A dairying region unsurpassed In the
whole world is to be opened up and
afforded an outlet to market.
A harbor, better than that of San
Francisco, and the only one with this
exception on tin more than two thous
and mile3 of Pacific coast. Is to be
supplied with increased dockage and
coaling facilities, arid immense grain
elevators will be built to store and load
the wheat of the Columbia basin direct- '
ly on the merchant fleets of the world.
Astoria offers openings for many new
Industries, namely, grist mll'.s, saw
mills, paper mills, stave, box. barrel
a.id tub factories, . show case works,
cash and door factories.
There will be room for many live,
energetic and wide-awake men and
women With or without money. All
Inquiries promptly answered. Paper
and data supplied on application.
