The establishment of an Indepen

City and Portland la proposed by Cap

wheel steamer Leona, who waa her

luncheon of the Liv Wire and laid
before that organization a proposition
to put hi boat on the local run, mak
ing two round-tripe daily. Captain
Hembree say he will cut the passen

freight tariff on some claasee of mer
chandise., materially cutting the rat
on furniture and similar merchandise

tain Hembree la authority for Um
etatement that the craft loat 2,K

off the run and tied her np at Port

he carried hay for $1.20 per ton foa

no profit on the haul, after being com

to $1 per ton, and waa eventually

Captain Hembree recited Wis tact 'n
