RIVER BOAT BURNS
Eiplisioo on J. N. Teal Results
, In Liss i! Two Lives.
ANOTHER BOAT TO PUT ON RUN
Conntcted With Portage Road
Celllo to Handle Traffic of
rortlanJ, Oct 24. In a firo that fol
lowed an explosion on the Open River
Transportation company's steamer J.
N. Teal, at the foot of Oak street, at
4:48 o'clock yesterday morning Mrs.
Amanda E. Jackson and James Collin
were Inclneiated, Jack Hasley was seri
ously burned and the vessel's super
structure was totaljy destroyed.
Whether the accident was caused by
the explosion of an oil burner or of one
of the boilers is in doubt. An official
investigation will be started by the
United States Inspectors to determine
The steamer was practically new,
having been launched tho latter part of
May. On June 20 she was placed in
commission between Portland and the
etate portage road at Celllo, connecting
with tho steamer Relief, which was
operating on the upper stretches of the
Columbia. During the 4H months
the craft had been in service she never
missed a trip. Sho completed three
round trips a week. It is declared that
no other boat on the river ever ran
more steadily than she, and this Is the
first accident the boat ever experienced.
Thoogh not regarded as an unusually
speedy boat, she succeeded In maintain
ing an average speed of about 15 miles
Aaldo from carrying general freight
both up and down, tho steamer handled
a largo number of passengers. Primar
ily sho was built for the purpose of
getting an independent steamer line
established and to add to it as occasion
demanded, with the view of having
water transportation facilities as far
inland as Lewis ton, Idaho. The slogan
of the company was an "open river,"
hence the name chosen for the corpora
tion. Of late the major portion of her car
goes on the down trips have been made
up of wheat. The Relief, running (mm
Celllo, or tho upper terminus of the
portage road, Drought grain on the
down trips almost altogether and man
aged to keep enough of the cereal at the
portage to keep the Teal busy In con
nection with tho other line of freight
abo handled. Joseph X. Teal, secre
tary of the company, state that the
Relief will be kept in service.
Before too great a quantity of freight
accumulated at tho portage he is confi
dent that another boat to handle the
traffic at thla end of the line will be
EMPRESS OF CHINA SINKR.
Crack Oriental Liner Resting on Mud
Vancouver, B. 0., Oct. 24. The
Canadian Pacific Railway company's
crack Oriental liner, Empress of China,
sank last ovenlng alongside her dock in
this port. Her seacocks must have
been opened, but how, no one can ex
plain. Her main deck on tho port side Is
awash with several feet of water. She
sank and keeled over on her port side,
so that the main deck Is now at an an
glo of about 45 degrees. Her engines
and dynamoes are entirely under water.
She is testing on a mnd bottom, but
the problem In saving her will be that
of righting the vessel and preventing
her from completely turning turtle.
Just after 0 o'clock the steward no
ticed that the water was coming in over
a lower deck. All day the liner bad
been loading flour, 600 or 600 tons of
which is now being slowly turned into
paste in the watery hold. Instantly
the steward gave the alarm. Officers at
dinner hurried to their stations as the
big vessel began to list. All hands
manned the pumps, but it was too late
to save her from sinking and soon every
person was ordered ashore.
Will Pound to Bits.
Crescent City, Cal., Oct. 24. The
stranded British steamer Queen Chris
tina lies In the same position she took
when she ran aground last week. The
aea continues running smooth and the
tipper deck has been dry ever since tho
accident. It is the opinion of local
seafaring men that the first heavy
storm will pound the vessel to pieces.
There Is no chance to salvage the
heavy articles aboard from seaward, as
it is too late in the season and because
there are too many sunken rocks around

Says Ruef Expected Immunity.
San Fmnclseo, Oct. 25. When the
Fotd bribery trial was resumed yester
day tho cross examination of ex-Super
visor Janice I Gallagher was contin
ued by Knrl Itogets, for the defense,
who laid stress on tho meetings of tho

Tho prosecution called ox-Supervisor
John J. Furey, now a saloon keeper.
The offer of his testimony marked tho
commencement of introduction of "evi
dence of similar offenses," tho court
overruling tho objection by tho defense
to this class of testimony. Furey told
the story of his acceptance of a bribe of
$4,000 from Abo Knot through Galla
gher for his vote in favor of the United
Railroads trolley franchises.
IMPORTANT WATERWAY OPEN.
Link of Deep Water Channel
from Lakes to Gulf.
Sterling, III., Oct. 25. A distinct
and important step in tho movement to
secure a deep watorway from Lake
Michigan to tho Gulf of Mexico was
taken yesterday with the opening to
navigation of tho Illinois and Missis
sippi canal, which has been completed
after 30 years of work. Tho importance
of the event was evidenced by the at
tendance of Governor Deneen and many
ether notables at tho opening ceremo
nies. The work of constructing the
canal, which was formerly known aa
the Hennepin canal, was commenced
many years ago. In 1800 congress ap
propriated money to carry on the work
and altogether the appropriations have
amounted to about 18,000,000.
The main line of the canal, 76 miles
long, extends from tho Illinois river,
near Hennepin, to the Mississippi
river, three miles below Rock Island.
The navigable feeder, about 30 miles
long, extends from Rock river at this
ptdnt to the main line near Sheffield
and Is of the same general dimensions
aa the main line.
The canal is 62 feet wido at the bot
tom, 80 feet at the water line, and has
a minimum depth of seven feet. There
are 32 locks on the main line and one
on the feeder. Water is to be forced
down the canal by a great dam, ono
fourth of a mile long, located at this
point. At one end of the dam are 21
slnlceways, which will bo used for elec
trical power development.

Five Hundred Perish In Italian Trem
blor at Calabria.
Rome, Oct. 25. Horrlblo loss of lifo
resulted from the earthquako shocks
tliat occurred throughout Calabria yes
terday. At first it was thought few
persons had perished, but later repcrts
add to the mortality list.
At 0 o'c ock this evening about 200
bodies had been taken from tho earth
quake ruins. It is now estimated that
the deaths will surpass 600, but It is
impossible to get accurate Information
on the subject, as many villages are
still cut off by the floods and the de
struction of roads and telegraph lines,
and no word from them can be had.
The earthquake shocks continue, but
they are slight. The people are still

Hue tho facts hu exeot to prove III
asking tor n conviction ot Fold. Hu
followed oholy tho line of the ohiii
lug statement made by him to tho

tho Jury disagreed.
Thu only marked dlffereiico lay In
tho foot that throughout his statement
yesterday Mr. Heney Intimated that ho
would provo these aliegntioni without

belief Is that Ruef Is holding ont for a
contract with complete Immunity.
Notwithstanding his submission ot
hlimolf to the bribery graft imvocti-
tlon, Mr. Heney and his amclate havo
repeatedly drolaied that It Is their in
tention to send Itucf to Jail when they

Tho surpilie of the day was tho seem
ing recalcitrancy ol Jennings J. Phil

declared himself unalilo to rememler
whether Supervisor James J. Galla
gher, allegedly acting In Lehalt of the
United Railroads and by direction ot
Ituet, had paid hluijthw first half of tho
$4,000 liribtt before or not until after
the stssago ot tho franchise; and Mr.
Heney hod great difficulty In getting
him to admit that "to tho Ix-st ol his
recollection" tho offer of money was
made In the erlod that clawcd be
