BUILDERS' PROFILE OF THE OLYMPIAN, 1883 The Northwest economy was booming in the early 1880's when Henry Villard, the financier who controlled the Oregon Railway & Navigation Company, optimistically ordered two iron, sidewheel steamers. from East Coast shipyards for service on Puget Sound and the Columbia River. The Olympian and Alaskan were fine, fast vessels, but they followed designs popular on Long Island Sound, rather than types proven in the Pacific Northwest. They were found to be too big and expensive to operate in Columbia River or Puget Sound trade, espe· cially after the Northwest boom declined, yet unsuitable for operation in the open sea. Left without any profitable routes, they became known as "Henry Villard's white elephants." The Olympian was launched in 1883 by the Harlan & Hollingsworth yard at Wilmington, Delaware. At 1,419.6 gross tons she measured 261 ½ by 40 feet and drew 9 feet of water. Her 70 x 144-inch, surface-condensing engines were of the vertical, "walking-beam" type favored on the Atlantic Coast. The paddle wheels had a diameter of 32 feet and buckets 11

feet wide . She featured a grand saloon some 200 feet long and was electrically lighted throughout (then still a novelty). The Olympian was luxuriously appointed with mahogany furniture and thick carpets; all fifty of her staterooms had running water and some were furnished with brass beds, rather than bunks. Captain H.S . Ackley brought the Olympian around from the Atlantic and she reached Victoria, British Columbia on March 25, 1884. She commenced service between there and Tacoma, Washington under Captain Thomas Wilson. Even though she could make a round trip daily on this route, the Olympian lost money, so she was sent to try her luck on the Columbia at the end of 1885. Her first service there was dramatic. A terrible blizzard struck the Columbia River gorge on January 22, 1886. The river froze from bank to bank, becoming impassable for lightly built wooden riverboats, while snow drifts blocked the O.R.&N. railroad tracks. Westbound (continued on page 3/





FROM THE QUARTERDECK A vacationing retiree from California, encountered the other day in one of the galleries of the Museum, asked if any information might be available on the steam schooner Multnomah, built in St. Helens in 1912. As a boy he had made a rough, late fall trip in her from the Columbia River to Los Angeles, and now he hoped to find out what had become of her. That morning's mail had included a note from a wellknown author, inquiring whether the Museum could provide a photograph of the lighthouse that marked Desdemona Sands, a few miles downstream from Astoria, early in the century. There was also a request from a researcher in England for details on the loss of the British steamship Welsh Prince, sunk in a collision with the S.S. Iowan off Altoona in 1922. Those queries, each relatively easy to deal with, are typical of the hundreds of requests for information received each year by the Museum from researchers, students, writers, government agencies, media representatives, etc. They come by mail, over the telephone, and through personal contact. Increasingly, individuals seeking information come to the Museum in person, prepared to do extensive research. The role of research center is a vital aspect of the Museum's overall purpose. Of course the Museum collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets material objects related to maritime history, art, and technology. But information must also be collected, information not only about the objects in the collections, but also about the context in which they were used or created, and about other objects with which they can be compared or against which they can be measured- in short, information on virtually any aspect of the areas in which the Museum collects or seeks to collect. That information, brought together in the Museum's library and archives in the form of books, periodicals, manuscripts, photographs, prints, documents, etc., attracts researchers and casual questioners in evergreater numbers. Ultimately, the quality of our exhibits, as well as every other Museum program, will be determined by the depth and breadth of our library. It is a major goal of the Museum to establish the library as a first-rate resource for regional maritime history . To accomplish that goal will require time, money, and the active participation of Museum members, trustees, and staff alike. If you have, or know of, materials that might be appropriate additions to the library; or if you have a special interest in helping the Museum to meet this great responsibility, please let us hear from you. Michael Naab, Director

Astoria's Maritime Week will run from Sunday, May 20 through Saturday, May 26 this year. This annual event is always set to include National Maritime Day (May 22). The schedule has not yet been finalized, but the Museum expects to have programs nightly at 7:30 p.m ., Monday through Friday. The Salmon Run, a marathon foot race, will start from Hauke' s Sentry Supermarket at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 20. On Tuesday, the Museum will host "Frontiers of Trade: New Boundaries," a program of the U.S. International Trade Administration, from 8:30 a .m. to noon. The Maritime Museum Auxiliary will hold its annual fund-raising luncheon in the Museum at 11 :30 on Wednesday . The Museum's ship model competition will take place on May 26 (see details elsewhere in this issue) . Watch for further information in flyers and local news media about Maritime Week.

AUXILIARY ACTION The Museum Auxiliary's annual luncheon will be held at the Museum, starting at 11:30 on May 23, during Maritime Week. It will feature ham, salads, and homemade bread. The charge of $4.00 per person will help finance contributions to the Museum. A motion picture projector was recently purchased by the Museum with funds donated by the Auxiliary. Programs for the Auxiliary' s monthly meetings have recently included Leonard Vernon's presentation on the history of the Columbia River jetties and Don Marshall speaking on shipwrecks of Oregon and California. A new gavel, made of teak from the gunboat U .S.S. Concord (scrapped at Astoria in 1930), was presented to the Auxiliary by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Tolonen at the March meeting.

MARITIME WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP An all-day workshop in maritime watercolor techniques will be taught at the Museum on Saturday, June 30th by Tom Allen of Corvallis, a well known watercolor painter and art instructor at Linn-Benton Community College. To register for the workshop, contact Larry Haskell at Clatsop Community College, 325-0910 ext. 206.

SHIP MODEL COMPETITION The Museum's 11th Annual Ship Model Competition will be held in the Kern Room on Saturday, May 26th, during Maritime Week. The entry deadline is 10:30 a .m . and the event will be open for public viewing from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. Amateur models of all types of watercraft are welcome . Awards will be offered in both adult and junior divisions for these categories: scratch-built scale models, wooden kits, plastic kits, radio-controlled models, ships-in-bottles, and decorative or fanciful models . A grand prize is presented for the best model in the show. The junior division is for modellers up to and including age 14. A fee of $2.00 will be charged for each adult entry. Last year's competition attracted 39 models by 27 different builders, with a wide range of subjects. The contest provides au uppurlu11ily fur the public tu view the painstaking work of amateur model makers and for the modellers to become acquainted and swap information . For entry forms and further information, contact Larry Gilmore at the Museum, 503/325-2323.

THE STEAMER OLYMPIAN, (continued) trains halted at Hood River, Oregon. Because of her iron hull, the Olympian was ordered to try to force her way upriver to collect the mail, freight, and stranded passengers. She made slow progress, repeatedly ramming as far into the ice as possible, then backing out and driving forward again. She nearly met with disaster during her first attempt, on January 26th, when a large ice jam broke loose and carried her downstream with it for nearly an hour and a half. The Olympian was finally swept into the eddy of a sand bar above Vancouver, Washington and managed to hold position there until the jam passed downriver. The next morning she succeeded in battering her way up to Dodson's fish wheel, a little below the present site of Bonneville Dam. Ice was piled twenty feet above the river's normal surface upstream of this point, but the trains waiting at Hood River managed to break through to Dodson's while laborers brought along aboard the Olympian hacked a path from the bank to the rail line. The freight, mail, and 175 passengers were transferred aboard and taken back to Portland that afternoon. The Olympian went upriver again on the 28th with eastbound passengers and mail. By January 30th the tracks were cleared and normal rail service resumed. During the summer of 1886 the Olympian was placed on the Portland to Ilwaco, Washington run, providing through service to the seashore. Under the command of Captain L.A. Bailey, she could make the passage to Astoria in as little as four hours and forty-seven minutes. Nonetheless, she did not catch on, as other boats on this route did, and she drew too much water for regular service above Portland. Consequently, the Olympian was chartered to the Pacific Coast Steamship Company in 1887 for the trade to southeast Alaska, under the command of Captain James Carroll. However, even in the relatively sheltered waters of the Inside Passage, she was "pretty well shaken up on this run ." By October she was withdrawn to her old route between Puget Sound and Victoria, commanded by Captain O.A. Anderson.

The 1890' s was a time of heated labor disputes and an incident which occurred aboard the Olympian on October 20, 1891 led to widespread repercussions . A quarrel which broke out between a deckhand and First Assistant Engineer Henry F. Smith escalated into a general row between the mates and deckhands, on one side, and the engineers and firemen, on the other. Captain McAlpine had to threaten Smith with a revolver to subdue him and quell the disorder. A subsequent inquiry resulted not only in the revocation of Smith's license, but the temporary suspension, for various offenses, of the Captain, Mate, Chief Engineer, and Second Assistant Engineer. The Marine Engineers' Association took up Smith's cause and when Captain McAlpine later took command of another boat, her engineers all quit work and the Association proclaimed that none of its members should serve on a vessel commanded by McAlpine. The American Brotherhood of Steamboat Pilots then backed McAlpine and agreed not to work aboard any craft employing a member of the Marine Engineers' Association . In consequence, virtually every large steamer on Puget Sound was tied up until the two organizations negotiated a settlement of the dispute. Later in 1891 the Olympian, her boilers in bad condition, was taken to the Columbia and laid up in the steamboat "boneyard." There she remained until sold to New York owners. While under tow, by the S.S. Zealandia, for delivery to the new owners, she stranded at Possession Bay in the Strait of Magellan (the Panama Canal being yet incomplete) on March 13, 1906 and gradually went to pieces.

The Olymp ian at Seattle, 1888

THE WRECK OF THE PETER IREDALE The Court, having regard to the circumstances above stated, finds as follows:That the position of the ship before the shift of wind was not one of danger. She was in the usual cruising ground of the pilot schooner, but unfortunately no pilots were on the station, the pilot boat being in port under repairs. We consider that prompt action was taken by the master immediately the wind shifted, to get his ship's head off shore, and by all accounts, he was ably seconded by his officers and men. Having carefully considered the evidence, we do find that the master, and his first and second officers, are in no wise to blame for the stranding of the said vessel, and their certificates having accordingly been returned to them.

Some while ago, Bill Wagner presented to the Museum a photocopy of the official findings on the loss of the Peter Iredale, which his father, Hugh, obtained from Dr. John Nay/on of the University of Keele in England. Since most of our membership has at some time visited the wreck at Fort Stevens State Park, we think it will be of interest to reprint this document here:

"PETER IREDALE" Finding and order of a Naval Court held at the British ViceConsulate, Astoria, Oregon, on the 12th and 13th days of November, 1906, to investigate the stranding of the British four-masted barque "PETER IREDALE." The "Peter Iredale" was a sailing vessel, four-masted steel barque, of 1,993 tons registered tonnage, official number 97790, and built at Maryport, England, in 1890, and belonging to the port of Liverpool, owners P. Iredale & Porter. It appears from the evidence given before the Court that the ship sailed from Salina Cruz, Mexico, on or about the 26th of September, 1906, with 1,000 tons of ballast, and a crew of 27 hands all told, including two stowaways. No incident worthy of mention happened until the look-out sighted the light on Tillamook Rock at 3:20 a.m. on the 25th of October, 1906. The ship's course was altered to E.N.E. until the vessel was five miles off the light. The course was then altered to sight the Columbia River lightship. This was sighted and recognized, it bearing N.E. In this position, finding the wind was veering to westward, and having lost sight of the light in a thick mist, it was decided to wear ship to avoid the influence of the current setting to the north, and the tide running into the Columbia River. The wind had now hauled to north of west in heavy squalls with rain. Just before striking, while in the act of wearing, an exceedingly heavy west north-west squall struck the vessel, throwing her head off, she taking the ground, and shortly afterwards losing her upper spars. She then drove ashore, with a high south-west sea running, and a fresh westerly gale. We consider that everything was done by the master to get his ship out of danger, but that the set of the current and the sudden shift of wind drove him so close in that in the act of wearing around to get his ship's head off shore, she stranded.

The Court further desires to put on record their appreciation of the prompt action of the United States life-saving crew at Hammond, in having the lifeboat alongside in the heavy surf, and the help given by the captain of the boat when ashore; also of the action of the commander, Col. Walker, U.S.A., and his officers and men, of Fort Stevens, for their attention to the wants of the wet and hungry men when at the Fort. And lastly, the Vice-Consul desires to express his satisfaction with the quiet and orderly behaviour of the crew when in Astoria. Given under our hands at the British Vice-Consulate at Astoria, Oregon, on the thirteenth day of November, A.D . 1906. P.L. CHERRY, British Vice-Consul President of Court. D. WILLIAMS, Master Barque "Robert Duncan." ROBT. MOORE, Master Barque "Bank burn." N.D. JOHNSON, Clerk of the Court (Issued in London by the Board of Trade on the 24th day of December, 1906.}
