San Francisco, Dec. 10. The hand
some Oregon building at the Panama
Pacific exposition grounds will be used
by the soldiers of the Presidio reser
vation as a club bouso, if the United
States government will accept the of
fer of the Oregon cdmmissioners to
turn over the structure free.
This announcement was made today
by Oeorge M. Hyland, secretary of the
commission, who dVclared! simultane
ously that the difficulties that had
threatened with P. E. O'Hair, wreck
ing contractor, who purchased the
building had all boon smoothed out.
Last week, O'Hair bought the build
ing for $1,020 and at once began to
advertise its lumber for sale. Yester
day, however, tho Oregon commission
ers decided that they would prefer to
have Uncle Sam's soldier boys have
I the building for their club house and
accordingly mnae a rormai oner or tne
structure to Major General J. Franklin
Bell, commanding the western depart
ment of the army.
The only condition attached was that
the government should permit the men
to use the building for their own am
usement as long as it stands on govern
ment property.
This action seemed to bring a con
flict between the commissioners and
O'Hair but the contractor voluntarily
came to tho rescue today. Ho appear
ed at tho Oregon ouilding and said he
would co operate with the commission
to the fullest extent. Ho offered to re
leaso the commission from any obliga
tion to sell the structure to him and
the offer wiib accepted.

this port, evidently making for San
iedro. Assistant Harbor Master Mug.
ler made this report to the United Press
today, after he made a fruitless trip to
sea for the purpose of extending the
courtesy of the port to Captain Gar
lick. The Minnesota now known as the
"mystery ship" should reach 8a Pe
dro about-11 p. m. She is making a
little better time than yesterday, indi
cating that some of her boilers are
working again. Had she been making
for San Francisco, harbor authorities
sav, she would have probably been fur-
iner out 10 sea.
Radio men here say Captain Garlick
was. doing his utmost to prevent his
destination from becoming known. He
failed to communicate with the wire
less stations here today and it was not
known until Mugler's return that the
Minnesota bad passed on her way
Federal officials at all Pacific ports
are on the lookiut for the Minnesota.
A federal grand jury probe of condi
tions aboard ib freely predicted, al
though local officials would not dis
cuss tho case.
Despite reports to the contrary, it is
believed that the Minnesota troubles
are not mechanical ones. Ii they were
mechanical, the secrecy which has been
maintained by the captain would
scarcely have been necessary watcr-
rro;ic men say. .
Newspapermen who attempted to
communicate with Captain Garlick late
yesterday returned here today. They
were unsuccesstul. railing to get the
captain on deck, they shouted to mem
bers of the crew.
"Is there a man named Martin on
board the Linnesotal" tiiey asked.
" Ves," came the reply. ',
"Where is hef". .
Three sailors clasped their hands in
front of them as if manacled and then
pointed towards the bow, as if to indi
cate tuat there was a man in irons and
confined in the ship's brig. A sharp
order from an officer standing near cut
short further conversation.
At that time none of the Minneso
ta's boilers were working.
Captains of the tugs Taqua and
Dauntless, which had tho Minnesota in
tow, reported that Captain Garlick ha-1
refused to even intimate as to the 1
nause of his trouble, or us to the con
ditions aboard.
The opinion here today is that the
Minnesota's boilers were out of com
mission by acid. The Minnesota car
ried a record cargo of foodstuffs for
Grent Britain.
All of the Minnesota's engines are
out of commission."' Captain Garlick
refused to come on "Seek when hailed,
and the captains of the tugs laqua and
Dauntless said he had refused to indi
cate to, them what .the conditions
aboard the Minnesota really are.
"He even tried to suppress my wire
less," said Captain Mitchell of t'.ie
A thorough prolo by a federal grand
jury is predicted here in case the Min
nesota enters this port.
Captain Garlick, of tho Minnesota,
sent conflicting reports as to whether
ho would enter Snn Diego harbor or
continue north, it. became known that
federal officials here are ready to take
some action if the Minnesota docks
iice. The vessel bad not been sight
ed at 0 a. m. ,
The captain of the Minnesota is not
in command of the vessel, those who
attempted to board her late yesterday
related here today.

authorities here to adopt art attitude
of "waiting to be shown" hefort mak

vessel enters San Pedro harbor.

"Our regular men will be at the
wharves when the Minnesota docks, if
sue noes so, ana in nny action wo may
take we will be guided by circum
stances of which we are in ignorance
at the present time."
At tho harbor here it was considered
likely that tho Minnesota would wait
until Saturday morning before entering
if sho makes for this port. No ar
rangements for docking her hero have
been mndo.
"You will notice that the Minnesota
is staying within the three mile neu
trality zone," said one federal officer
hero today. He refused to comment,
It is understood that federal officials
