'?The trial trip of the steamer Saidie as an oil burner yesterday whs a suc cess and as a result the Alaska Steam ship Company has wcided to equip frur of its vessels w ith oil machinery," said Mr. Peabtdv. "It will cost about $11,0 1 to charge the machinery of the Dolphin end J ? - fer-on. aed $10,000 toalterthe steamers Ko>a1ie and Whatcom. '?Alter an investigation yescrdayit was ascertained that the Alaska ves sels can be operated a great deal chea; - er each month by the use of oil Instead of coal. Three men can perform the work on oil burning vessels where it now takes 10. The company can save at least $1400 in tho cos! of operation of the Jefferson and Dolphin each month, and probably half that sum on the Kosalie aud Whatcom "The work of changing the four ves sels into oil burners will be made at once. It is very likely the Dolphin will be laid up two trips in the summe months, and the Jefferson will be equ:pped with o;l burners before she leaves on her first trip. Chaoses to the Kosalie and Whatcom will be uia le ihpitfy." Rookaiida D>l'-y?
