COLUMBIA IS BLAMED
San Pedro Officers Say Disaster
Could Have Been Averted.
HUNDRED SEVENTY-SEVEN SAVED
Seventy-Two Are Unaccounted for
nd Chances of Being Found
Alivs Are Small.
Eureka, Cal., Jnly 23. Arrival yea
tctday o( the steamer Gcorgo W. Elder
with tho battered steam schooner San
Pedro In tOTV, brought the first uowa o(
a marlno disaster which will rank
among tho wont ot tho Pacitlc coast.
Tho San Pedro drovo full speed Into
the item of tho steamer Columbia,
bound from San Francisco to Portland,
tearing a great path In her side, and
causing her to sink within eight min
utes near Shelter cove, about 12:30
o'clock Sunday morning.
Tho diet reports Justified the belief
that at least halt ot the 250 persons on
board tho Columbia had perished, bht
hourly tho total shrinks. Tho bent ad
vices now ate that 177 escaped death
when tho vowel went to tho bottom.
One hundred and teven of tho Colum
bia's passengers and 37 of her crew
have been brought to this port by tho
steamer Geo. Y. Elder, which towed
the colliding schooner San Pedro from
tho scene ot the disaster to Eureka. A
late message from Shelter cove says
that three more lifeboats have been
picked up, ono of them containing 18
persons, another 15 and the third not
Two hours after the wreck tho fog
lifted and a cold wind commenced to
blow. Tho people In the boats suffered
0. Swanson, a sailor of the San Fed
ro, was at the wheel Saturday night
when the fatal collision occurred. In
his report to the sailors' agont, John
Erlckson, the blamo is laid upon the
shoulders ot tho Columbia's officers.
Other members of the crow ot the San
Pedro substantiate the story ot Swan
ton. He says that tho crder was given
to him when the lookout sighted thn
Columbia to put the wheel hard apoit.
Three points a pott carried the San
Pedro seaward apparently out of tho
way of the approaching Teasel, whoso
name at that time was not known.
Short toots from the whistles of both
vessels warned tho skippers. The Co
lumbia was on tho ccast aide, the San
Pedro on the sea side. Apparently
both vessels were proceeding ut full
speed. If all had gone well, the San
Pedro would have cleared the Colum
bia, but it la evident that an order,
"put tho wheel hard a-starboard," was
given on the Columbia. This sent her
directly across tho bow ot the steam
schooner. 'Whether or not the speed of
either vetsol was slackened is imma
terial, for the crash of the vetsels was
terrific. Tho Columbia, an iron vessel,
boro tho brunt ot tho impact, and her
iron plates cracked, and a gash seven
feet across tho forward hatch allowed
the water free ingress at great velocity.
Among the survivors rescued and car
ried north to this ort by the George
W. Elder are men and women from a
score of slates, not a few from the At
lantic seaboard and tho Middle West.
Among these are a number of tchool
teachers, who were varying with a sea
voyage their home trip from the an
nual convention ot the National Educa
tional association at Los Angeles.
A segregation of the Columbia's pas
senger list shown that In her cabins she
carried 78 men and 00 women and
girls; in tier steerage SO men and one
woman, a total ot 180. Discrepancies,
however, between the full list furnished
the puner on railing and some of tho
names given by the survivors who have
reached hero indicate that the total
number of passengers may havo been
greater. Sixteen ot the names given
here are not found on the steamship
company's certified list. Adding to the
180 accredited passcngeia tho 60 or CO
members of the Columbia's crew gives
a total of 240 lives Jeopardized in the
midnight collision. It is known that
at least 40 women were saved.
Plot Against Czar Is Nipped.
St. Petersburg, July 23. The police

Borah Fervently Disclaims Thought
ltolse, Idaho, July 20, Tho caso ot
the Stato of Idaho agnlnst William I).
Haywood, charged with tho murder ot
rrank btomienborg, a former governor
ot tho state, will lest with judge and
jury by tonight. Claronco Darrow,
after speaking for 11 hours, concluded
tho ilual plea for Haywood's lite at
4:20 n. m., and at 7 o'clock last even
ing United States Senator Itotnli opened
tho closing argument for tho prosecu
tion. Ho will speak for three sessions,
or about seven hours. Judge Fremont
Wood will instruct and charge the jury
on Saturday morning.
Mr. ltornh's spotx'hjwas a sensation.
From time to tlmo he turned on coun
sel for the defense, fierce denunciation
pouring from his lips, and at times
brought protests irom Mr. Ilichardson
and Mr. Darrow, but with biasing eyes
And hot wotds ho silenced every effort
to break tho rush of wotds. The cli
max was leached, when in behalf ot
tho stato ot Idaho, its people, its gover
nor and himself ho disclaimed all in
tention or desire to give immunity to
Orchard. Finally, his face pale and
voice nuUcrlng with emotion, the sen
ator raised his arm and said:
"If I should ever join In or give ap
proval to immunity to this man
hope tho great God may wither my
right arm in the socket."
Mr. llorah declared tho staio did not
want Haywood convicted of any crime
for which Orchard or I'ettlbono or
Mover or Slmpkins or anybody clso was
responsible, and desired n verdict of
guilty only it the cvIJenco was deemed
sufficient to warrant such a conclusion.
The senator denounced Clarence Par
row's statement that the jurors' minds
had been poisoned against tho defend
ants In this caio. Nowhere, he de
ckled, could a fairer trial havo been
held titan in Boiso.
GLASS CASE FINISHED.
Attorneys Make Arguments to Jury
In San Francisco.
San Francisco, July 20. The Louis
Gla.s bribery case should be in tho
hands of the jury by 1 o'clock this after
noon. Francis J. Heney, for the peo
ple, and T. C. Coogan, for tho defense,
yesterday made each his opening argu
ment. At 10 o'clock this morning Dol
phin M. Delmaa will begin tho closing
addross for Glass. Popular prophecy Is
divided between a conviction and a dis
agreement. No one affects to forecast
The chief sensation of tho trial mmo
at 1:20 o'clock, when tho prosecution
having closed its caso Mr. Delmaa crisp
ly announced: "So have we." This
determination to offer no evidence In
contradiction of thecircumstantial web
woven around Glass was a sudden and
complete surprise to everyone, most of
all to the prosecution, for the previous
day Delmas had casually, or ro It
twined, mentioned Rudolph Snrccklca
as "ono ot the witnesses wo shall call."
Heney, after stating frankly to tho
jury that the declination ot Second Vlco
President Zimmer, tho most important
individual witness for tho stato, to tes
tify had put it beyond tho power of Uio
prosecution to establish definitely tho
connection of Glass with tho crime of
bribing Supervisor diaries Doxton, do
voted himself to a vigorous exposition
ot tho circumstantial caso made out.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
BETTER TRAIN SERVICE.
Southern Pacific Anticipates Move ot
Salem As a result of tho hcnrlng be
fore tho railroad commission ot the
complaint made upon the commission'
own motion, ngulust tho alleged Inade
quate passenger train setvieo of tho
Southern l'neltlc through Utu Willam
ette valley .from tho south, In nil ptob
ablllty an order will bo made requiting
tho eomatiy to run u stub passenger
train from Itoseburg to Portland on No.
12'a time when that train Is reported
an hour late at that station.
This order will bo made to satisfy
the demands ot tho traveling public for
a more satisfactory service through the
valley, especially by notthlound over
land No. 12, which, up to two weeks
ago, was from ono to six and eight
hours late. Doubtless in anticipation
of tho tiling of tills complaint, which
has Wen hold In abeyance by tho com
mission for several weeks, tho South
ern Pacific company put ort an extra
train which runs ns far south as Albany
and then doubles back as tho first sec
tion of No. 12.
Strangely enough this chango was
mado upon the same day tho complaint
was filed, without notice to 'ho com
mission and without tho tatter's know
ledge. Ever since this extra was put
into service, picking up tho heavy local
express and baggage shipments, No. 12
has ben on time and complaint has
ceased upon this score. The railroad
commission, however, Ixillcvca this
stub service should bo extended as far
south ns Itoseburg and an order to this
effect will probably bo mado. It Is
expected that the Southern Pacific will
endeavor to show that such an order Is
unnecessary, but, since no assurance Is
given that tho now train service will
bo mado permanent, tho order ot tho
commission will be a standing ono and
will mnko it so.
GRAIN WHERE SAGEBRUSH WAS.
