DISTANCE REDUCED ONE-HALF

Between Portland and North Yakima
on the route reconnoitered for the Port
land, Vancouver & Yakima Railroad, the
distance is 170 miles. The tallest eleva
tion to cross, Klickitat pass, is about 3000
feet above the sea and the heaviest grade
less than 2 per cent. By the present
railroads, It Is 320 miles from Portland
to North Yakima by way of Wallula and
SOS miles by way of Tacoma, the latter
route rising to a height of nearly 3000
feet to cross the Cascades through Stam
pede tunnel. It now takes 12 hours to
pass between Portland and North Yaki
ma; at the same rate of speed over the
proposed direct line, the time to make
the trip would be only 6& hours. North
Yakima would then be reached from Port
land almost as easily as Astoria now is.
The round trip could be made In a day.
Of the 170 miles between Portland and
North Yakima by the short route trains
are now running regularly over 17 miles
of track and 15 miles more are under
construction. Nine miles of grade are
now ready for the rails, and the rails
would have been laid before this time
but for the Inability to get them from
the crowded mills of the East. Right of
way has been secured for a distance of
90 miles. Thus far the Portland, Van
couver & Yakima has been chiefly a log
ging road, penetrating a heavily timbered
region. But it is understood that the
line Is now aiming for the St. Helens min
ing district, where developments have
reached a stage to warrant preparations
for transporting a large tonnage out.
From the end of the road now under
construction to the St. Helens mining dis
trict Is only 20 miles, which distance will
probably be covered within the coming
The natural resources of the country
that would be traversed by this new short
line are said to be nothing short of mar
velous. There are gold, silver, copper,
coal and iron in abundance, a large area
of valuable timber and possibilities of
great agricultural development. Though
the road would pass through the Blount
Rainier Forest Reserve, where there
could be little general development, that
region is so heavily mineralized that it
would yield an enormous volume of traf
fic Mining activity cannot be prevented
even on a forest reserve. There is rich
and productive country on either side
of the reserve.
According to the statement sent to the
Portland Chamber of Commerce by a
committee' of North Yakima citizens,
there are but 35,000 acres of land under
cultivation In the Yakima Valley, and
yet the freight paid to the Northern Pa
cific at North Yakima annually amounts
to about $750,000. This is pointed to as
an indication of the richness of the Yaki
ma country. Its ability to produce and to
consume. "While the Portland market
is sought by the Yakima producers, the
Yakima market Is equally deslrablo for
the Portland merchants. Over the pro
posed short line North Yakima would be
about as near- to Portland as to Pugct
It is not publicly known where the
financial support for the Portland, Van
couver & Yakima Road comes from, but
it is understood to be abundant to put
the road through whenever there shall
be traffic in sight to warrant construc
tion of the line. In other words, it is
not a question of raising building capi
tal but one of tonnage. This will soon
be solved by the mining operations of the
St. Helens district alone, but It will re
quire only 52 miles of track to serve
that district. For the further 118 miles
of construction, other support must be
found. It is believed that the Yakima
Valley itself is sufficient to justify the
building of the remainder of the line. The
good feeling between the Yakima country
and Portland bespeaks cordial relations
when they shall be brought closer to
gether by the short transportation line.
There is no doubt that such road would
be a profitable business venture, and It
would be an important developing agent.
Both North Yakima and Portland want
the road, and won't be happy till they get

NEW YORK, Dec 16. Changes In the
official freight classification affecting sev

by the trunk line railroads, and will take
effect on January 1. The classification
committee of the trunk lines some time
ago took up the annual revision of the
schedule. The work has now "been com
pleted and the classification will soon be

previous classification; they consist prin

affected shall be packed, etc, of changes
In the minimum carload weights, and of
the application of certain new rules. All
of these changes, however, refer In a
greater or less extent, to the rates. This
Is especially true of tho new rule which
governs the charges to be made on car
load shipments, according to the length
of the car This regulation, it is claimed,
was put In the classification so as to

load weight provided in the classification
Is. say. 20.000 pounds, and a car 36 feet
long Is furnished, the railroads will
charge for not less than 24,000 pounds; If
the car is 58 feet long the charge will be
for not less than 35.009 pounds, and so on.
Many articles have been made subject
to this rule, among thorn agricultural im
plements and parts thereof, apple or fruit
butter, churns, cork chips and cork wood
berry crates, creameries and coolers, trac

Another practically new provision which
affect packing-house products and other
articles is as follows:
"When any of the following specified
articles arc shipped by one packer or
owner at one time to one consignee and
destination in either straight or mixed
carloads, and the aggregate weight of the
enUry shipment Is 2S.000 pounds or more,
the carload rate for 100 pounds applying
on each article shall be charged."
Then follows the list of articles affected,
such as beef and pork and products
"If the aggregate weight of these ar
ticles," the rule continues, "does not equal
the required minimum of 2S.000, sufficient
weight shall be added to the weights
thereof to make up the deficiency. Any
other articles loaded in the same car with
those described above will be charged for

for such articles, and the weight thereof
shall not be applied toward making up

BRISK IN REAL ESTATE.
Dealers Report a ITlglily Satisfactory
The real estate market continues brisk,
despite the approaching holiday season. In
previous years the December sales have
been rather small and inquiries few, but
the activity this season is something sur
prising. Building has gone on uninterrupt
edly throughout the Winter months-, and
many houses and business blocks are in
process of construction. All real estate
men predict a big building epoch next
year, and a number of very handsome
structures are under contemplation.
Speaking of the present situation, a
well-known real estate dealer gave out
the following Interview yesterday: "I have
been in business here for many years, and
never in all that time have I seen the
December sales as good as those of this
month. Even during the recent storm
people flocked to our office, and sales
were good. The business Is fully 25 per
cent better than in any corresponding
period of previous years. The best part
of the whole situation is that the market
is firm, with no tendency to boom. Buy
ers are mostly homebuilders. Just what
the City of Portland needs. I think next
year will witness more building than the
city has ever known. People nre Interest
ed In this country and every train is bring
ing In settlers from the East and Middle
West Some of these newcomers have
means and are not afraid to Invest their
capital. I do not predict a boom, but be
lieve that Portland Is about to enter upon
an era of prosperity, the like of which
the city "has never known.
Another old-time real estate man said: "I
have been here more than 20 years, and
have never seen Winter sales as good as
they are at present. I have never seen
times as gopd in Portland as they are
now. The town Is full of people, and
vacant houses are as ecarce as hens'
teeth. The hotels, too, are doing a rush
ing business, and we shall certainly have
to have a good deal more hotel room than
we have now If we hope to handle the
big crowds that come to the Lewis- and
Clark Centennial. The city needs rome
more large hotels, and will very likely
have them before long."
Inquiry among a number of prominent
real estate men showed that the mar
ket Is In splendid condition.

WHAT STYLEOF DRYDOCK?
PORT OF PORTLAND COMMISSION
DISCUSSES THE QUESTION.
Iiocal Expert Favora Steel, bHt Nctt
Yorlc Engineer Presents Ar-
gruraents for "Wood.
The Port of Portland Commission yes
terday began the task of studying out the
best plan for a floating drydock. Thir
teen sets of plans were submitted, but
only two were accompanied by their re
spective sponsors F. A. Ballln, of Port
land, and W. T. Donnelly, of New York.
These took up nearly all the toe of the
commission until- an adjournment was
taken for this evening at 8 o'clock.
Mr. Ballln's plan was for a wooden dry
dock, capable of raising 10.000 tons. His
plan provided for five EO-foot sections, 90
feet wide, and he recommended having
the timbers treated with carboleneum, in
order to make them last 10 years. He
said the tendency of timber, without
treatment, would be to decay within five
years. The dock would require about
2,500.000 feet of timber In its construction.
Mr. Ballln, however, recommended that
Mrs. Emma Booth-Tucker, second
daughter of General Booth, the ven
erable founder of the Salvation
Army, is to vilt Portland on Sun
day and Monday, December 22 and
23. The Marquam Grand has been
secured by the Army, and on Sun
day Mrs. Tucker will conduct meet
ings at 11 A. M., 3 and 8 P. M.
She will be assisted by Colonel K.
J. Hlgglns, second In jcommand of
the Salvation Array operations
throughout the United States;
Colonel George French, the leader
for the Pacific Coast, and Major
Robert Dubbin, provisional offlccr
for Oregon and "Washington; also a
brass band from New York, and
some of the best talent in tho Army.
All the Army's forces of this city
will unite, numbering several hun
dred In all.
On Monday morning and afternoon
Mrs. Booth-Tucker will conduct of
ficers' counclla with all the ofnctVs
of Oregon and "Washington, and at
night In the Marquam Grand she
will deliver an illustrated lecture,
entitled. "Dramatic Scenes of Love
steel be used, as a steel drydock would
last 100 years In fresh water, and re
quire no ballast other than the water re
tained within it. He thought a steel dry
dock, built after his plans, would cost
about f34O,O0O, and perhaps $325,000, If
strong competition became a factor In the
bidding. About 2500 tons of steel would
be required, which would be furnished for
571 per ton. Mr. Ballln's charges for the
plans would be 2V per cent of the cost
of the drydock, and, if he were retained
as superintendent, his compensation would
be 1 per cent more. He referred to his
record as a marine architect since 1S73,
and produced proofs of his ability In the
construction of vessels at various ports In
the United States.
W. T. Donnelly, of New Tork, repre
senting Fabcr, Du Faur & Donnelly, of
New York, produced a model of a section
of wooden drydock constructed of yellow
pine. This model was about five feet long
and looked like a miniature truss bridge,
with a tower at each end. It was a
Lang balance sectional drydock patent,
he said, and he had built six drydocks
after the model within the past 11 years,
and was now constructing the seventh in
New Tork harbor, where there are about
100 wooden floating drydocks In success
ful operation. The floating drydock, he
said, had not come Into favor with United
States Government engineers until private
parties had demonstrated their success,
the basin drydock always having been
preferred. In 1S60 two floating docks were
built In New York harbor, one having 10
and the other 12 sections, each 30 feet in
length. The wooden drydock was an
American invention, and had come to be
recognized as such the world over.
Steel docks, he said, hav'e not proven so
durable as had been supposed, and he re
ferred to one at Havana, which the Gov
ernment bought from Spain, and found,
when the rust had been cleared away,
there was very little left of It. He was
sure a wooden dock would last for 17
years, and he had known them to outlast
the steam boilers placed on board.
"Other advantages of the wooden dock
lie in their ability to stand any undue
strain and keep their equilibrium," said
Mr. Donnelly, and the cross sections of
his patent were so well braced that the
uneven weight of the heaviest vessels
produced no warp or unevenness of deck,
which Is kept at a level with the surface
of the water when the drydock Is loaded.
Mr. Donnelly was listened to with at
tention by the members of the commission
while giving them the benefit of his ex
perience. In explaining the construction
of the cross section, he said the timbers
were bolted together, and that Tock wpuld
be used as ballast in rendering them
heavy enough to sink the dock when the
water is admitted at the flood gates on
each side. His dock is built in water
tight compartments, bo that any tendency
to "list'' may be offset as the vessel Is
being lifted out of the water. The bot
tom is planked with four-inch stuff, and
the deck is composed of the same ma
In proof of the lasting capacity of the
wood In fresh water, he referred to
wooden linings of three basin docks at
Buffalo, N. Y., the first of which was
constructed 20 years ago, and the timber
Is still sound. The fourth dock is being
constructed now and will be lined in the
Mr. Donnelly thought it would last Just
as long In fresh water as the yellow pine
of Georgia. What Injures timber, he said.
Is being subjected to changes from wet
to dry. The piling that has been below
the water of the Willamette for many
years appears to be sound, while the por
tion exposed to wet and dry spells Is prone
to decay. He had not figured on the dif
ference in cost of construction out here,
but would study the subject and give
the commission the result of his re
search Thursday evening. He finds that
ship-carpenters are paid ?3 50 per day of
eight hours in Portland, while in New
York they get $2 75 per day of 10 hours.
The cost of labor here would be offset by
the lower cost of timber, however, but
to what extent he was not yet able to
specify. In New York the timber is worth
$25 per thousand feet; in Portland per
haps $10 or $12. The plans of his dock
were made on a basis of $225,000 total
cost, and the expense of the patent would
be 10 per cent of the cost of construction.
The Heine Safety Boiler Company, of
St. Louis, was the successful bidder for
the contract of furnishing the boiler for
the new dredge. The figures were $7250,
f. o. b., and $250 for "finished complete."
J. B. C. Lockwood, superintendent of
construction on the new dredger, was paid
$1000 on account, for services rendered.
There was but one bid for setting new
sides In the dredge pump. This was not
opened, and the time was extended until

A colored cripple named Thomas Jordan
was taken to the Municipal Court yester
day, charged with begging on the streets.
Jordan walked on crutches, and he said,
sharply: "I did not do It. The police have
a spite at me. They want to run me in
for doing nothing."
"If you do nothing, you're a vagrant,"
remarked Municipal Judge Cameron.
"When jre arrested Jordan he was un
der the- Influence of liquor," testified Po
liceman Bailey. "He told us we could not
arrest him, and that, if we laid hands
on him, 'he would yell and get the sym
pathy of the crowd against us. He also
said that we were driving all the good
men out of Whltechapel, and that, in
stead of hunting people in that neigh
borhood, we ought to be hunting Boers
with Lord Kitchener In South Africa."
"Let me go this time. Judge. I've got
to live," said Jordan.
"Well, you can't live. In this town by

Tho funeral services of the late D. P.
Thompson were held yesterday after
noon at the First Unitarian, Church. The
services began at 1:30 o'clock, but long be
fore that hour the church was filled to
overflowing with friends of the deceased.
Among those In attendance were numerous
pioneers of Oregon, some of whom had
come from distant parts of the state to
pay their last tribute to the- dead
financier. The G. A. R., of which Mr.
Thompson was a member, and the Ohio
Society attended the funeral in a body,

been a member of the school board for
As the funeral cortege entered tho
church the choir sang "Abide With Me,"
after which Rev. T. L. Eliot, a life-long
friend of Mr. Thompson, read from the
Scriptures, commencing with the 23d
psalm, and delivered a fervant prayer,
In which he made touching references to
tho life and character of the dead pio
neer. Dr. Eliot was assisted by Rev.
George C. Cressey, pastor of the Uni

J. B. Slenrmons. At the conclusion of tho
church services the remains, accompanied
by the members of the family, the pall
bearers and Intimate friends, were taken
to Sellwood for cremation. Brief religious
services were held at the crematorium.
Floral tributes were numerous and of
beautiful design. Prominent among them
were two handsome pieces, one from the
school teachers, the other from the pupils
of the Thompson School. The floral trib
ute from the teachers was in the form of
a miniature schoolhouse, made of white
carnations with purple trimmings of
heliotrope. A tiny bell swung to and fro
in the arch, and the tribute showed the
high esteem in which Mr. Thompson was
held by the teachers of the community.
