The Yaquina's Close Call.
San Francisco, Sept. 20. Not
withstanding the efforts to conceal
the facts, it leaked out today that
the Pacific Coast Steamship Com
pan's steamer Yaquina bad an ex
ceedingly close oall on ber recent
voyage down the ooast from Seattle.
She bad been out of Seattle but a day
or two when it was discovered she
was leaking badly. All hands were
ordered out, the pumps manned, aud
a heroic effort made to get the water
out. It was soon found that the hold
was filling faster than It could be
emptied, aud the next order from the
bridge was to jettison the cargo. At
the same time the steamship's bow
was headed for the coast aud she
made all the speed possible, After
much of the coal had been thrown
over board, the vessel was found to be
light enough to keep afloat with the
assistance of her pumps.

Polk county "end of the big bridge

planking Is breaking and wearing

thing waB done for the safety of those
passing over It. The place is getting
extremely dangerous and vigorous
complaints are daily made by people
who have occasion to drive across the
bridge into Polk county. If the bridge
caunot be repaired it should be closed
to travel until such time as adequate
repairs can be provided for. A very

Arctic Explorer Hansen Re-Married.
An extraordinary story Is current in
the European press to the effect that
the Arctic exnlorer. T)r. Vnnoon i
about to be re-married to hit wife,' in
consequence or the fact that prior to
his departure on his last voyage in
search of the North Pole, be divorced
ber in order to permit her to marry
again in case of bis disappearance or
death, without going to the trouble of
proving bis decease. In order to un
derstand this it must be explained
that in many countries in Europe
great strictness prevails with regard to
the, re-marriage of women whose
husband's death cannot be be legally
proved, absence of seven, ten and even
fifteen years being required by law to
furnish satisfactory evidence that a
missing spouse is no longer in the land
of the living. K
The first creamery butter ever
manufactured in Jackson county or
that part of Oregon was manufactured
at Ashland with the new plant of the
Jackson County Creamer; Company
yesterday. Stock sufficient to start '
the enterprise was subscribed two
months ago, the subscribers being
most of them substantial farmers ad
jacent to Ashland, who made an out
lay of $3300 for building and machin
ery, and seem highly pleased with
their investment. The oreameryis a s
model one in every way, with the
latest improved machinery for manu
facturing butter. Its workings so far
seems to be entirely satisfactory. The
plant has a capacity for from 6000 to
9000 pounds of milk per day.
Judge Fullerton, at Corvallls Tues
day, ordered the residue of the $100,
000, purchase price of the old Oregon
Pacific railroad, to be turned over by
ex-Clerk Hunter to Clerk Watters. .
The amount is now reduced to $3641 76
and this amount patiently awaits old
Oregon Pacific creditors holding claims
to call for and oarry it away. Some
of these creditors are dead, some have
gone to distant lands, and how large a
portion of $3600 uow left will never
be called tor remains to be seen. Ex
Clerk Hunter got a snug fee fur his
services in acting as the court a dis
bursing officer in distributing the
$100,000 among the creditors. His
claim for the service was $500, and
for that amount the court allowed
him In full. Mr. Hunter says that
more than (200 was paid out by him
for clerical work in making the
