Capt. J. Roberts, of 'the nt earn or
Emily, came up from San Francisco
last week and is now with his vessel at
the Porter mill. After ho left tho city
ho hoard of tho loss of tho stnnmnr and
ran into Shelter Covo, arriving thoro at
4 p. m. on Saturday, and llndfng tho
crow and passengers all on ahoro. Ho
remained with them threo or fonr hours.
Tho first man ho met on tho beach was
tho captain of the Ajax and asked him
of tho disaster. Tho captain said he
struck on tho inside rock c-f Rlunt's
Reef at Capo Mendocino, and that by
his tlmo and log ho calculated he was
ton miles south of that placo and chang
ed his course accordingly. Rcforo ho
commenced to haul tho vessel In it was"
comparatively clear bnt it shut down
very thick and he changed his course
for Point Arena. Ho kept blowing his
fog whiatlo wlillo going full speed and
without tho slightest warning, Btrnck
and Immediately backed oil and point
cd for Shelter CoVo, which Is about 40
miles from whoro ho struck and for
which placo ho mado all posaiblo speed.
Tlio injured vessel, however, received
water very fast and after making about
28 miles alio sunk on Rig Flat in 10
fathoms of water, where about 2 feet of
her mast heads can now be seen at low
Reforo sinking thoy got all tho boats
ready, fonr of them, and tho passengers
got aboard, without any baggago what
ever, and thoy pulled through tho thick
fog, 12 miles to tho Cove, where they
arrived about 0:30 p. ra. vory cold but
none of them wet. Thoro was a heavy
sea rolling but no wind, and it was be
tween 0 and 10 o'clock a. m when the
accident happened. Tho passengers
speak in tho highest terms of the con
uuctoltue otucers and crew and say
that every effort possible was mado for
their comfort and safety. They wero
stopping with John Ray, who owns a
placo abont a mile from the beach, and
keeps a small hotel, tho hotel was not
largo enough to accomodate them and
some had to sleep in tho barn on the
hay, but although'thoy had lost all thoy
bad, they seemed to be in tho best of
spirits and sent their regards to frionds
in Marshfleld and on the bay and caid
they had plonty of "pork and beans."
The captain of the Ajax had just got
back from a, station 40 miles away as
tho Emily arrived, where he had char
tered the steamer Newport to take all
hands to tlio city. Sho was to havo ar
rived at tho Cove Saturday night from
Elk river, but tho fog was thick and she
did not get in until Sunday morning.
After tho vessol struck it was plainly
to be seen that she was going down and
tho pumps were worked to their fullest
capacity, and tho passengers turned in
and helped bail but tho wajcr kept
gaining fast and sho kept sinking by tho
head. Sho is probably a total loss and
It is not likely anything will ever be
done with her.
Tho only reason for being out of her
course is tho fact that the currents wore
unusually strong, as she had always
taken her courso by time and her log
nnd had never mado a mistake before.
No one imputes any blame to the cap
tain, who has won a reputation of being
a careful and competent man, and much
sympathy is expressed for him as he
feols keonly the loss.
The Ajax was built in San Francisco
abont two yoara ago and was a woodon
vessel which cost (120,000.
The Call of Sunday says:
"The Aiax was tho fineBt vessol in
tho Oregon Coal and Navigation Com
pany's fleot. She carried 800 tons of
coal, and had mado eighty round trips,
seldom varying an hour in her arrival
and departure from schedule time. She
was valnod at (120,000, and insured for
(75,000. Captain Donaldson, her com
mander, came out here five years ago in
an English ship, nnd has been in the
company's employ over since, working
his way up from quartermaster. He
formerly had command ot the Arago
and the Areata, relieving Captain Jes
son of the latter vessol when he took
command of tho Humboldt.
Captain Nelson says that lie is a
splendid navigator, and that ho would
havo no hesitation in again giving him
command of a vobboI if ho is exonerated
from blamo when the investigation is
held by tho United States officials.

Ernest Mosher, a son of Rov. J.
Moshor, of Coos river, In this county
mysteriously disappeared In Portland
on tho 0th of this month. He left his
homo on Saturday evening of that date
to go to the barber's shop and get
shaved, and that was tho last heard
from him until tho 11th whon his dead
body was found floating in tho waters of
tho Willamotto noar ono of tho wharves.
Ills agonized wifo made every search
for hlmt but all efforts to trace him wero
unavailing. It is thought he most havo
been murdorcd as ho was a Bober, in
dustrious man, and has been in tho em
ploy of tho Transfer Company for somo
tlmo. Ho leaves a wifo and ono child
and was 30 years of ago at his death.
Ho was thought to havo had monoy
when ho left homo, but no money was
found on his person and his watch was
missing. Tho case in a vory sad ono.

Howard Morrow aged about nirfoteen,
went in swimming just after dinner
Thursday, Sept. 4, in tho Umpqua river
nearElkton, with four of Mr. P. W.
Rhodes' boys. Mr. Morrow walked
into tbo water a few steps and making a

boys supposed he was playing, bnt be
coming alarmed immediately went .to

Tho Oregonian says : "The Knights
of Pythias have about decided to build a
fine and imposing castle, which, with
tho site, will represent an investment of
(150,000. For some time the project
has been discussed in the lodges, and
a well-known Knight told a reporter
yesterday that within a few daya promi
nent members of tho ordor would incor
porate tho Knights of Pythias Improve
ment Company, with a capital of (103,-000.
The castle will bo ono of tlio finest
buildings in tho city. It will be con'
trally located, but just where has not
been decided. It will be five or six
stories high. There w ill bo storerooms
on the ground floor and offices and the
castle on tho oth or floors. Work will
bo begun next spring.
It is expected that tho venture will be
a financial success from tho start. No
one doubts but the necessary money can
be raised. Thero aro 1000 Knights in
