St. Johns' Roll of Honor
The terminal which Portland
is creating at St. Johns will put
this city in the front rank of
Pacific const ports in port facil
ities. It will double the city's
power to Berve the quarter of a
million square miles tributary to
it. It will stimulate water
transportation not only from the
sea, but on the Columbia and
Willamette as well. It wil
cause Portland to be ranked
higher as a point of tranship
mcnt lor intercontinental antl
transcontinental as well as
Northwest freight movement.
As rapidly as possible the wild
overflow land west of St. Johns
on the Willamette is being rap
idly transformed into a modern
terminal with all its facilities.
The urea next the river will
be used for the bulk grain
elevator, the pier for sacked
grain and heavy freight, slip
No. l with berthing capacity
for four largo vessels, and then
u scries of piers and slips ter
minating in space for public
coal bunkers
On tho water side a wide
basin of u uniform depth of i!0
feet at low water is being
dredged out as a ship anchor
age. The 2,000,000 cubic yards
of material to be removed in
creating this basin will be
used to raise the site to an
elevation of U2 feet above low
wutor. The basin will join the
yu loot channel to the sea with
the terminal site. To the rear
of the elevator and docks is an
urea of considerable extent
which will ho divided into
blocks and streets and leased to
industries needing convenient
transshipping facilities. This
proposed industrial develop
mont has not been generally
noticed, but it is impoitant not
only from the investment and
payroll viewpoints, but as a
demonstration of the close rcla
Hon bjtween the development
of manufactures and of water
transportation facilities The
public dock commission is plan
Ing truckage, water and electric
power and light installation
that will serve the industries
as well at Its own plant.
The "St Johns terminal" is
to result from tho vote of $3,000
000 in bonds by tho people of
Portland at tho last municipal
election. With tho proceeds of
the bond issue, G. B. Ilugardt,
engineor of tho dock commis
sion, says that tho first 1,000,
000 bushel unit of the bulk grain
elector can bo constructed,
together with a second 1.000,000
bushel unit later on, tho work
house, ofilco and track shed,
pior No. 1, with its two level
dock having capacity for at
least 1,000,000 bushels of sacked
grain; slip No. 1. 1200 feet
long and 2G0 feet wide; pier No.
2, which is to be an open dock,
and part of pier No. 3. Thero
will bo money enough to pay
tho cost of tilling the entiro
urea of tho site and to do all
tho ' dredging necessary. Tho
extensive trackago system for
movement and storago of curs
will bo completed. And then
thero will be money enough loft
to provide for tho Port of Port
land commission coal bunkering
facilities when tho commission
decides that it is time to act in
obedience both to the frequently
expressed public desire that
Portland should be placed in
position to compete with other
ports and tho authority granted
the commission by law.
The building of the bulk grain
elevator will" very materially in
crease tho port's efficiency in
grain handling. A vessel will be
loaded in not to exceed 48 hours.
Now, for sacked grain, five
to seven days are required for
the loading process. The eleva
tor will be entirely operated by
electricity. Seventy to 75 loaded
cars will be received at one
time on the elevator track and
it will be possible to remove
tho grain from six cars simul
taneously. From 3,000,000 to
5,000,000 bushels of wheat
should be handled during a
season by the first 1,000,000
bushel grain elevator unit.
Portland has often discussed
the desirability of cold storage
facilities for fruit and fish.
Some day shiploads of Oregon
fruit will be carried by water
both to the Atlantic coast and
Europe. Some day Oregon cap
ital will lose its timidity toward
the development of a deep sea
fishing industry in which Seattle
is now the dominant Northwest
factor, A marginal street on
the terminal site will separate
the piers and slips from a broad
warehouse area which has been
reserved for fish and fruit and
her purpoces.
The terminal will probably
serve the lumber industry
Early resumption of opera
tions by the Monarch Lumber
company, whose electrically
equipped plant near East St.
Johns is said to bo capable of
(cutting ship timbers 120 feet
I long, may result from the- recent
supremo court decision, which
has apparently put an end to
bitter and complicated Mica
tion which has kept the big
plant closed for a number of
years. In confirming tho title
of W. T. Patton, a former em
ployo of the mil) who has ob
tained a sheriff's deed to the
property to satisfy a judgment
for Stiuo for personal injuries
received while at work, the
supreme court also holds the
prior sheriff's deed of Captain
E. W. Sncncer void and all
subsequent title holders without
legal right to tho property.
Another curious twist to tho
legal tangle is that Jby which
Attorney John W. Kaste. who
acquired title to the property
from Patton. is now hold the
legal owner of the plant, which
was valued at over $1,000,000.
The supremo court decision
affirms tho judgment of Cir
cuit Court J. P. Kuvnnauch.
The case is declured to bo the
Inrgest ever threshed out in
Multnomah county and it re
quired the supreme court 12
weeks to decide the case. The
property consists of 28 acres
on Oregon slough adjoining tho
Union Meat company, and has a
frontage of 2000 feet on deep
water. Two sawmillB. etc..
and nn electric power plant arc
included. The mills nro operat
ed by electricity. Thirty-five
hundred horso power boilers
dovclopo 250J kilowats per hour.
burplus power is so d to the
Union Meat company and other
industries on tho Peninsulu.
The property includes a block
of ground nt Kenton on which
is u retnil lumber ynrd. The
plant was built in 1911 at a cost
of $1,000,000. The big mill has
a capacity of 300.000 feet per 10
tours and tho little mill 75.000
almost as importantly ob it docs
tho wheat movement. Pier No.
wil be used for lumber, steel
and other heavy materials which
can be placed in tho open.
When necessary portions of pier
No. 1. can bo used for other
rolght than grain. When busi
ness increases una it is found
necessary to cover pierNo.2 and
pior No. 3 then pier No. 4 will
bo built, says Mr. Hegardt, for
tho accommoudation of lumber
and other commodities. The
umber handling facilities will
be especially useful to Willam
ette valley lumber interests.
The public dock commission
is not going to bo content with
merely building facilities for
landling grain, lumber, steel
and other commodities. It will
conduct a "selling campaign"
n tho territory in which Port-
and and Puget Sound compete
for business, as soon as the
elevator and tho pier construc
tion reach to a point where
without strain of tho imagina
tion, ono may visoalizo tho
completed plant, representative
wheat growers will bo invited
from all districts to be the guest
of tho commission on an in
spection trip. Tho grain eleva
tor is being provided largely at
the instance of tho interior
wheat growers, many of whom
are building bulk elevators at
ocal terminals, and Portland
wants them to see how fully
their wish is being granted.

Spent Holidays Here
A number of girls of the
James John Alumni who have
ieen teaching have been spend-
ng the holidays in St. Johns.
The list includes: Misses Nettie
Toole. Ruth McGregor. Olive
Zimmerman, Jennie Olin, Min

Hunkins and Gertrude Mc
Carthy. Tho James John
Alumni held their annual Xmas
party at the home of Miss
Arlene Shaw. The affair was a
Kid Party and it was a splendid
success in every detail. Ihose
present were fittingly costumed
and acted their parts most
charmingly. Miss Shaw proved
a most delightful hostess. Mis
ses Minnie Nolan, Clara Nelson

To Construct New Road
Application of tho Grant
Smith-Porter-Guthrie Shipbuild
ing Company for permission to
construct a logging road across
tho St. Helens road and the
tracks of tho Spokunc, Portland
& Scattlo Railway, neur Hoi
brook, was granted by the Pub
lic Service Commission at a
henring in Portlund Saturday.
The preliminary work of con
structing the logging road will
proceed, ending tho formulation
of an order by tho commission
specifically prescribing the typo
of construction. Tho object
of building this road is to en
able tho shipbuilding company
to reach a tract of timber ap
proximating 800.0C0.C0O feet
that will bo utilized in tho con
struction of ships for which the
applicants hold Government
contructs. "It is tho policy of
the Commission," said r. J.
Miller, tho chairman, "in ovcry
way to encourage tho develop
ment of shipbuilding. Tho-construction
of this logging road
means much to Portland in tho
development of this very indus
try. I am convinced from the
disposition shown by Chairman
Hurley, of tho United States
Shipping Board, to continuo the
building of wooden ships, that
tho lumber industry of the
Pacific Northwest is finally to
come into its own."
Locates at Vancouver
Tho great steel shipyards of
the G. M. Standifor Construc
tion Corporation will bo located
in Vancouver, below tho North
Bunk Railroad bridge. Tho
company already has contracted
to build 10 steel ships of 9500
tons each for tho United States
Government, at a total cost of
$17,000,000. This contract is
more than $1,000,000 greater
than the assessed valuation of
Clark County. Options wore
closed Friday for about 50 acres
and immediately afterwards a
special election was called for
Wednesday, January 10, to vote
on a proposal to bond the fort
of Vancouver for $185,000 to pay
for the land, ihis site will bo
leased to tho G. M. Standifer
Construction Corporation for a
nominal consideration. The
plant will cost more than
$1,000,000 to build and work on
tho construction will begin
soon. It is said that a least
5000 men will bo employed by
this big concern and it is be
lieved that the population ofjthe
city will reach 25,000 within
two years. The G. M. Standi
fer Construction Corporation
has its main offices in Vancou
ver and is now building six
ships there, each of 3500 tons
dead weight, in addition to four
more ships in North Portland.

It nmkes nn exception in the following
to kIvc the unknown nn opportunity to
air his views on the opcni house question.
To tho Editor of St. Johns
ueview: rermit mo to add a
few words to an article written
by A Booster. I admire anyone
boosting for our community,
but I don't approve of knocking
the few enterprises we already
have. Having cot'.sidcrable ex
perience in a business way with
a number of enterprises, 1 will
endeavor to Bhow the business
end ol it. For we cannot con
fino our questions to only what
wo need, but must include what
wo cun afford. A big majority
of our families and'communitics
need u great deal more than
they can' afford. Mr. Booster
seems to think if we would
have an opera house people
would be spending more money
with our homo merchants. If
one must go to Portland to see a
first class opera, that's no ex
cuse for bringing bnck things
which con be gotten here. For
myself I will stntc, and I know
this will apply to many others,
that when I go to sno tin opera
I go to seo an opera only and
not for tho purposes of bring
ing puckngps buck with mo
when 1 can get thorn here. We
have hardware stores, drygood
stores, clothing stores, grocery
stores and drug stores. While
not ns largo a variety as some
uptown stores, yet suflicicnt to
supply any immediate want.
If 1 should need :oinothing in
tho hnrdwnre line, which they
wouldn't happen to have, they
would got it for mo just as soon
and for tho snmel money us I
could got it. If I should want u
certain urticle in clothing which
they do not curry in stock here,
1 go uptown for that urticle only
and buy the rest In St. Johns us
any loyal citizen should.
1 wish to ask what kind of nn
opera house has ho in mind,
something in Mm utass with Or
pheum and Hoilig? And has
he any idea what tho building
would cost nt the present high
price of material and labor? If
not I would suggest he better
consult a first class architect. I
will state that nny building
liko that at present time would
bo n business failure and com
mercial suicide. And will ven
ture to any if Mr. Booster hud
acquired, through business abil
ity, suflicicnt wealth to enable
him to put up a building of that
class and owned any of the
prominent corners in St. Johns,
that he would ten to ono sooner
invest in U. S. 4 per cent Bonds.
And I think ho would show
good judgment.
It's true that wo hove severnl
hundred people working in our
community. But how many
mes a month can these people
afford to pay $2.00 or $S.00 to
see n first closs operu. For tho
benefit of those that don't know
I will say, wo can barely all'ord
ono moving picture house. Wo
had two, but pno expired. Why.'
iNot mat tncy mutio suiucieni
money to retire on, but becuuso
thero wus not business enough
for two to buy a meal ticket.
Supposo wo had tho house you
have in mind, would u first class
onera come here to play wo.
they would play in a house on
Broudway and your Jersey street
opera house would bo all durk
for want of business. And we
would bo obliged to travel sev
eral miles to seo an opera, just
as we are today. But wo will
go a step further. Supposo we
had tho opera house and troupe
would venture out here to
to play, that class of people
that are in the habit of bring
ing packages from Portland
would go to the Broadway opera
just the same and Jersey street
would bo deserted again, the
troupe would not make enough
to buy a meal and carfare, con
sequently would bo obliged to
hoof it back hungry. Results,
another empty building. I
think green lawns are more
attractive to our community
than empty store rooms and
opera houses.
Now wo huve a first class
moving picture theatre here,
which shows the same high
grade productions as you see on
Broadway and Washington
street and cost you less money.
So why buck it? When we know
by past history that is the only
one we are barely able to sup
port at the present time. Do
you know as a matter of lact,
there is not a single opera
house in the city of Portland
paying dividends? Seems to mo
we are always clamoring for
something, and if we do get it
then can't properly take care of
them. Observer,

Very few men would have boon

it is now announced will not be

at the training camps. Future
draft quotas are to be filled first
from Class 1, comprising men
without dependents. They will
be drafted from deferred classi
fications only when Clnss 1 is
exhausted, thus making it ncc
essnry to go to tho next class
for enough men to fill up the
quota. An exception to this
will bo made in the case of ex
perts and men highly skilled in
agriculture or industries. It is
announced that the Government
soon will call for a lurge number
of men of this specinl class.

A Malicious Report
false und malicious report

tho effect that Mary J. Ilarnoy
of St. Johns sent a sweater to
tho Red Cross Association with
tor name attached, and that
ater Mrs. Harney received a
otter from a soldier who stated
that he had received tho
sweater, liked it, but had to
pay eight dollars for it. Mrs.
Ilurney stutes that she did knit
several sweaters for tho Red
Cross, but in no instance did
she attach her name to same,
and she did not receive a letter
from a soldier or any ono else
regarding the sweaters. How
such malicious reports get into
circulation is a mystery, but tho
originator, if discovered, should
be dealt sovero punishment.
It is evidently an attempt to
discredit tho noble work of
the Red Cross workers.

City Engineer O. Luugaurd
has completed a plan for tho
dredging of Oregon slough
which contemplates federal aid
and which would servo the
threefold purpose of furnishing
water trnnsportntion to the
Kenton industrial district be
tween I'mrview and the exten'
sion of Union avenue and, what
is considered most important
to tho city, furnish sewer dram-
age into running water for the
entire Peninsulu district.
"It is a project which tho
government can aid through
congressional appropriation be
cause of its water trnnsportn
tion," snys Mr. Luurgaard. "It
would be of great aid to the
drainage district orgnnized by
the owners of Columbia bottom
lands west of Fairview. It
would solve the difficult pro
blem of outlet for sewers need
ed for drainage on tho Ponin
sul. My thought is that these
sowers should bo located so
that ut tho time when it be
comes necessary to ubnndon the
practice of discharging sewer
age directly into streams a re
duction plant cun bo installed at
the point where they come to
gether." Mr. Lnurgaard suggested that
sewer drainage districts would
have to be organized for the
drainage of North Portland nnd
the Peninsula districts. He
has forwarded a draft of the
plan to the war department at
Washington. Tho plan content
plntes the dredging of Oregon
slough for navigation from tho
Willamette on the west to tho
Columbia on tho east.
