In your account In this morning's Issue of the drowning of Jno. Hcndrlckson, lUhlng fr Coiumbia cannery, and the ivferencw tto mutte tn yesterday s even ing niHr, no mm!un 1s made of the brave and hiTolc oot of Isaac Hendrlck son (not rolated to tflie former in any way), captain of a boat Monging to the cannery. Hi saving the UN' of Aug ust Koskola, Jno. Hendrickson's tioat- pullor. I have not sivn Isaitc Hendrlck son, but the following facts were given me ithls nvn-nlng by Mat Halswakkn. who, while lying at anchor In his biiat. uiviminli'l only by a boy. w". mewed tl!w caiwlrlivg of Jiw. Hemdrtckson's boat In tlx- breakers of Clatsop Spit, outside of tlie Jut ty, at ulKiut 6 o'cliK-k yesterday (Friday) m-irning. U seems that Isaac Heinddekson was lying at anchor in ihls boat near by, but was unaware of the accident unt 1 notltUtl by ltnistakka, when he imme diately hoisted his anchor, set sail and dashed Into the hvukers at the peril of his life, and that of his mate, reacli ing Jm. HiMidrick.'n's Uwt nly In time to save title boat puller, Koskella, who, according to nis own suu-.. m.u Ikvii wa.iluNl aw-ny from his clinging position on the bottom of the boat four times. Inr Jno. Ilendrlckson hud also otuleavoivd to save himself by holiUng on to the bottom of his boat, but was carried away for the third time, never to return. Hendrtekson thinks that naa he been able to reach the upturned boat a tew moments sifcmer he would luive succ.MdiHl In savin;; the lives of both men. After sailing out of the breakers and carrj-lng the half drowned Koskella to a place of safety, Hondijck son ri'tumed, and wlUh the aid of t'e linlUnl States life-savltiR crew, Uals takka Oust Nelka and others, sueceeded In sa"tng the boat, which had by that time drifted up with the fresh flood to a nolitt oniKwltu the end of the etty, and nearly all of the drowned man'S net. To save the property of amther is wurnviidable, but when a man delib erately imperils his life to save the life of his fellow man for that Is wat all those, who witnessed the accident vol untarily tesUfy to-lnuelled by no mo tive of reward, such noble conduct de serves to be rooorded.

The event ut th pont w-k have aem-ed to further alien a.Uj xympathy (rira the Greeks The iry from Uirlssa of ttie fearful stam-pi-di? to and from that city after th fighting at Tymavo Is the aetmatkm of the day. The fact that the Greek offl-c-rn war- equally affected with Che pri vates by psunlc Is regarded as prof f that the Greeks are utterly demoralized anil kicap&blt' of withstanding thr steady advance at the Turks. The report of the flghllng; at Veles tino come fmni the Greek side and are is: thought to be as Important as they are represented. Eilhem Panha, the TurklHh ofnmaider-ln-chlef, la evident ly preparing an extensive plan to at tack Pharsaioa, and the appearance of th Turklnh cavalry in the direction or Dornokus, about ten miles south of Fhamalos. Indicates that it is the inten tion of Edhem Pasha to turn the Greek fla:ik.

Ttie change of ministry U an eliKiuent sign of the weak- itt of King George, and especially his accepting M. ltaill as premier, for the (".r--k H"oler. -when iimn imed to confer with his majesty, addres el him in an offensively blunt manner. The king re plied with dignity, but he whs force.; to Hwallow his pride. It Is the gnorat Impresolon that M. Ralli is aiming at mthtng higlKT than the pr m;erm. bi his oix-eptance of tat ofllce Is held to have placed him in an invidl us po sltkm. A Greek victory- might make him a liopular idol, but d.'ft"ttt, which Is more probable, wisjld cover him w ith odium and lie would be overturned as a tdlsi prophet. Tlie statement that Greece would carry on the war to the las: gasp is not reirarded as of any import ance. Greece is already reduced to mll tuiry Knd financial extiVinlties, and further efforts must so.m be abandoned. The Greeks will await a decisive en counter at Pharsaloe, and then they are expected to appeal to, the powers. Th? cotidtthuis of peai-e which Greece will have to accept are stated to be most probably as folkvs: The Greeks will be allowed to retain their present fron tiers, provided the island of Crete Is lm medately evacuated. Turkey will be permitted to impose a war indemnity Wn Greece, EMPTY PURSE. Pitris. May 1.
