That the trrowing commerce of Portland
demands a drydock, and that the building
of one here would be a wise move, la
conceded by all. The only question now Is
as to what material is best for Its con
struction. A majority of business men Interviewed
on the subject think it advisable to build
the dock of steel, because that Is the mod
ern method and the most lasting material.
A steel dock. It Is urged, has elements of
permanency about it that are lacking In
wood. It Is plainly a case, they say, ot
the best being the cheapest, which is a
rule having general application.
"While a steel dock may cost 25 per cent
more than a wooden dock, conservative
business men estimate that the extra out
lay would prove the best kind of an in
vestment. It would secure a permanent
institution that would not become water
logged, and would practically last Indefin
itely. It would need no renewing or re
placing, as would surely be the case with
a wooden dock.
The present project of the Port of Port
land Commission Is for a wooden dock, to
cost $225,000, and the commission has $4C0,
000 at its disposal for a dock. If the wood
en dock has to be replaced within 10 to 20
years at the same cost, it would certainly
seem to be on the side of economy to in
vest 20 to 25 per cent additional at the
start and secure a steel structure that will
be permanent and need no replacing.
Drydocks as investments are said to be
safe'and sure everywhere, and as they re
turn their owners 20 to 25 per cent, they
have created riches in many ports.
When the Spanish government wanted a
drydock for Havana Harbor it had a llrst
clas3 steel dock built on the Tyne, and
had it towed 6500 miles. It weighs 42W)
tons, and has a lifting power of 10,000
tons. Its , construction occupied six
In building a floating dock a contractor
can come out at the end of his contract as
close to his estimates as he can in build
ing a ship. In building a stationary stone
dock it often happens that, alter a big
hole has been scooped out at great ex
pense and a retaining wall put in, an
Innocent little spring breaks out of the
near-by bank, and from a trickle It in
creases to a puddle, and next morning
shows that during the night it has been
joined by other little springs and has per
haps pushed the retaining wall away, and
again shown the "mighty power of water.
.be best, for Portland, a steel or' wooden
dryaocK, tne prominent Business men wno
were seen gave their opinions as follows:
J. G. Day, prominent contractor, whose
firm built the Cascade Locks There Is
only one class of material worthy of con
sideration in the construction of a floating
drydock, and that is steel. Even were it
built of oak, It would be undesirable, and
If built of Pacific woods it would need
very extensive and continuous repairs in
seven or eight years. Building of steel
would delay the matter only one season, if
at all. In the absence of plans and speci
fications, on which to base calcula
tions, and considering the facilities in
the East forgetting steel shapes, I think
that the cost of a steel dock would but
slightly exceed that of a wooden dock.
The operating machinery, which would be
an expensive part, would cost the same in
either kind of dock. The only difference
In the cost would be in the construction of
the hull. It would cost more money to as
semble the different parts of a wooden
dock than of a steel one. The facilities for
working steel were demonstrated at the
Cascade Locks during 'the erection of the
gates, which we had shipped from the
East in sections. We were not required to
chip a Joint or drill a rivet hole in the
3,000,000 pounds of steel we used. M. T.
Endlcott, Chief of the Government Bu
reau of Docks and Yards, recommends the
abandonment of projected wooden docks,
because they have been a source of an
noyance and expense everywhere.
vertlsement for Portland. When ships
would go Into It the fact would be tele
graphed all over the country. When we
have a drydock here many a ship will
come here which now goes to Puget
Judge George H. Williams I think that,
if a floating dock Is desired, wood would
be the material to build it of. If a sta
ti6nary dock is desired, of course steel is
the most durable, but the cost might be
out of all proportion. Whether steel or
wood be used ought to defend on the
difference In the cost of material, and that
would be a controlling consideration In
choice of construction material. I am
nleased to know that Portland is to have a
drydock. Such Institutions are of great
advantage to the commerce of a city.
General Charles F. Beebe I can hearti
ly commend a wooden drydock if it is
properly cared for. Of course, steel is in
destructible, but it would be folly for us
to spend two or three times as much for
steel as for wood. A first-class wooden
dock will last for 50 years. Such docks
have been In use for that length of time
in New York.
George Taylor, of Taylor, Young & Co.
I think, judging from what I have seen,
that wood would be the best. Our native
wood is good for the purpose of a dry

Of the best people of Europe and America paid their money for Pianolas? Be
cause the Pianola enables one to play any piano with whatever expression Is de
sired. No knowledge of music Is necessary. Perforated, rolls of paper direct the
striking of the notes exactly as written, leaving the player the power of controlling
the manner In which they shall be struck. Tempo, touch, accent, phrasing, all ele
ments of expression, are perfectly under control. ...
The Pianola added to the piano places the entire range of music within the

J. Thorburn Ross, manager Title Guar
antee & Trust Company I think that
we ought to have the dock which experi
ence has demonstrated. would be the best.
It would be penny wise and pound foolish
to build a dock whose first cost might be
less, but the life of which would be very
much shorter, and which would be less
ettlclent In its operation. The building of
drydocks has paesed the experimental
stage. Enough of them have been con
structed In the Important ports of the
world to demonstrate the relative values
of wood and steel. My Impression Is that
tho steel dock has proved superior to all
others. In my judgment we should protit
by the experience of others, and If data
have not already been gathered for this
purpose, they should be obtained forth
with, in order that economy of construc
tion and enlclency of operation may be
secured. Taxpayers have a right to ex
pect that this be done.
James Laldlaw, British Consul In
building a drydock, while wood would un
doubtedly be the most Inexpensive In the
early days of the enterprise, I think that
steel would be the best and cheapest in
the long run. If we are going to have
a dock I think It Is time we had It. To
an outsider not connected with the com
mission. It would seem that much time,
has been lost, and the good work of build
ing a dock should now go forward as rap

Portland, especially for Its future busi

Henry Hewett, marine Insurance agent
I am not familiar enough with the details
of drydock construction to express an
opinion, but considering the great dif
ference in lasting qualities, it seems to me
that Iron or steel would be preferable to
wood, especially as the cost Is going to be
burdensome and tho Income perhaps In
sufficient to renew or replace a wooden
dock in case that kind is built. Except In
the matter of first cost, steel or iron will
be preferable to wood, unless there is
some technicality that I cannot see. Wood
gets waterlogged, but ste'el does not.
