Crew Safe As
Boat Sinks Off
Oregon Shore
Wind, Tide Force Former
Rum Runner Onto Jelly
At Mouth Of Columbia
ASTORIA, Ore., Feb. 28. - (UT)
While her crew of 10 mourned the
loss of their captain, surf-battered
wreckage was all that remained today
of the former rum runner Pescawha.
On her way to sea for the first
time in seven years, the 40-foot craft,
at last an "honest" whaling boat,
was swept by strong wind and cur-
rent Monday night onto the sharp
rocks of the north jetty at the mouth
of the Columbia river. Then she was
swung around the jetty's head and
onto the sands of Peacock spit. There
seething surf pounded a spectacular
finish to the boat's spectacular career
Capt. Victor 14. Riley of Portland,
owner and master of the former
liquor carrier, which was manned by
a "land lubber" crew, attempted to
launch the boat's small dory andt
was carried to sea by a large wave,
Others aboard, including the mate,
Thomas F. Haskell of Portland,
leaped over the side and was washed
to safety on the beach.
Three coast guards from the Cape
Disappointment and Point Adams
stations, who had futilely attempted
to save the crew while the Pescawha
was still on the jetty, administered
first aid.
On Feb. 3, 1925, the Pescawha fig-
ured in a thrilling rescue of the cap-
tain and eight crew members of the
lumber carrier Caoba in the face of
a 50-mile gale near the mouth of the
Columbia shortly after the revenue
cutter Algonquin came alongside.
The late Capt. Robert Pamphlet and
his men aboard the Pescawha were
arrested and the vessel, with its
$200,000 cargo of liquor seized.

corporations of the United States.

Jean Harlow Bern was recently exonerated from any implication
following the death of her husband, Paul Bern. At the coroner's the
