CLOSING OF DRAWS.
WHAT BANKS SHOW
A Dollar's Worth Free
NEW CRAFT GIVEN TRIAL RUN
Judge Webster Hears Some
SUGGESTS ACTION BY COUNCIL
Court -Thinks There Is No Insur
mountable Obstacle to Be Met
- in Regulating Opening and
Closing of Bridges.
The question of closing the draws of
the bridges between 6:30 and 7 o'clock
and 7:30 and S o'clock in the morning,
during' a -portion of the noon hour and
also between 5:30 and 6:30 or - 6 and 7
o'clock in the evening was discussed be
fore Judge "Webster by a committee of
East Side citizens yesterday morning.
The speakers were: Edward Newbegin,
Thomas G. Greene, Charles J. Schnabely
Tr". J. Peddlcord, Francis J. McKenna.
"Whitney I. Boise, Joseph Buchtel and
Judge "Webster In response sal&.the mat
ter had 3een taken up with the.ttorney
General of the United States, through
United States District Attorney Heney. to
whom he had written a letter upon the
subject. Judge "Webster said he did not
think there was an insurmountable ob
stacle in the way of closing the draws at
certain times, notwithstanding the "War
Department was supposed to control the
operation of the bridges. His Honor sug
gested that the City Council be asked to
pass an ordinance regulating the open
ing and cJosIng of the draws. "While the
county controls the bridges. Judge "Web
eter said It would be well to have an
ordinance passed to go with the order
of the County Court in case of any legal
Supreme Court Decision.
Thomas G. Greene, who was the first
fspeaker, called attention to a decision of
the United States Supreme Court that
.the operation of bridges was a matter
for the people to decide among them
selves. The people had greater rights
than the commerce on the water. The
speaker said he did not agree with the
statement of Captain Conway, of the O.
R. & N. Co., that to close the draws at
stated hours would destroy the commerce
of the river. "Most of the commerce,"
said Mr. Greene, "Is below the bridges.
Only a few large vessels come above all
the bridges. Occasionally one loads at
Inman, Poulsen & Co.'s mill, and recently
a. load of iron was brought for the South
ern Pacific Company." Mr. Greene re
fered to steamboat companies which ob
jected to the closing of the draws, and
said one of the boats never carried over
a half-dozen passengers except during
hop-picking time, and Inconvenience to
these few people was small in compar
ison to the traffic over the bridges. Next
he spoke of the United States mail ser
vice, contending that the amount of malls
carried on tho street-car lines was vastly
greater than that carried on steamboats.
T-OSS of time to worklngmen consequent
to bridge delays, Mr. Greene estimated
at $200,000 a year.
Would Place Indicators.
"Whitney I. Boise related an Incident
where the steamer Republic whistled for
the draw to open, and after it had been
opened, whistled again that the boat
could go under the draw. Ho advocated
the placing of indicators on the bridges
showing the distance from the top of the
water to the deck of the draw, so that
small boats could tell when It was safe
to go under, and the passage of an or
dinance making it a misdemeanor to
whistle to open a draw when it was not
Francis I. McKenna related that he had
seen travel congested on the Morrison
street bridge for more than an hour be
cause of the numerous repeated openings
of the draw. He also told how travel was
stopped on the steel bridge and men de
layed going to work.
Herman "Wittenberg said he had 300 em
ployes, many of whom lived on the East
Side, who wanted relief. He also said the
O. R. & N. Co. made a practice of tak
ing Its steamships through the steel
bridge during the" noon hour to save pay
ing longshoreman, who rested during that
Bills G. Hughes said the draws were
open too ong more than was necessary.
The general expression of opinion of
all present was that 140,000 people will
frive thanks if arrangements can be made
to keep the draws closed and accommo
date travel over the bridges during the
RjVERMEN PRESENT THEIR SIDE
Think Closed Bridges Would Prove
The afguments presented to County
Judge "Webster yesterday by the citizens'
committee have not in the least discon
certed the river mon, and they are still
firm in their conviction that the county
will not disregard their rights or their
possible losses so far as to close the
bridges to them lor any portion of the
They feel that when their committee
waited upon Judge "Webster It presented
facts which could not possibly be ignored
and that It presented a solution to the
problem which in point of feasibility and
practicability cannot be overcome.
The rlvermen, while refusing to admit
the right of the county or city to close
the bridges to them, still wish to do all
In their power to relieve matters. "When
interviewed last night. Captain A. B.
"I have heard that a committee of cltl
zons -waited upon Judgo "Webster today
and presented its side of the case, but It
seems to me that Its side Is far too rad
ical and It displays a far too selfish mo
tive. From what I have heard, it seems
to think that the rlvermen -disregard en
tirely the rights of others, but if it is
such a stickler for rights, it seems ne-
cullar that it does not wish to grant that
we have any rights. Speaking for the
rlvermen. I feel safe In saying that every
river interest is perfectly willing to do
all in its power to help to avoid any de
lay to the people, and with such a feeling
i xninic tne citizens should be willing to
co-operate with us to the extent of not
causing us any loss.
"I think there has been a great deal
of exaggeration, in this agitation for the
closed bridges. They speak of the long
delays caused by the opening of the
bridges, and it is asserted that the aver
age opening extends much longer than
ten minutes. I have watched the Morrl
son and Madison-street bridges today and
the longest opening was six minutes.
.This was occasioned by a lone raft of
llogs. extending la length from the Mor
fcrison to the Madison-street bridges, and
?ln -tow of the slowest boat on tho river.
the Albany. The agitators seem to think
that the only possible loss that can occur
will be to themseH'os. There were, how
ever, four rafts of logs on the river to
.day. Supposing any one of them had
' been stopped because of closed bridges.
Imagine what the loss might have been.
1 do not think that any of the business
men agitating for closed bridges would
care to stand It.

ficlent confidence in Judge "Webster's bus
iness instincts to rest assured that he
will never permit any condition to arise
which will be a menace to Portland's in
dustries. For my part, my wish Js that
we will vet see the day when the "Wil
lamette River will simply be covered with
shipping, a line of boats extending from
St. Johns to Sellwood, without any closed
bridges and yet so bandied that the de
lay to bridge pedestrians will never ex
ceed five minutes."
C F. Swlgert, who has a close Interest
In the proposed closing of the bridges as
a street-railway man, said:
I cannot see yet where the closing
of the bridges would result In any prac
tical benefit It Is very readily admit
ted, however, that there are numerous
delays to those crossing tho bridges
whloh I think could be avoided by the
steamboat men. Still 1 believe that the
rlvermen have by this time seen the
errors of their ways in the past and real
ize that they cannot go too far in their
"I am a strong advocate for the middle
course, as suggested by Mayor "Williams,
and think that if the matter is adjusted
along the lines proposed at the rlvermen's
meeting that the whole difficulty will be
remedied. If the rlvermen will only put
such rules Into effect and see that they
are honestly and faithfully carried out,
which I think they will do, there will be
no trouble. Should tho bridges be closed
it seems to me that there will be too
much of a resulting loss and there will
surely be a serious clash, and the effect
will be worse than present conditions."
"It was suggested at the conference
with Judge "Webster yesterday that $200,
000 l lost annually in time to breadwin
ners through delays In crossing the
bridge. D,o you believe that?" was asked
of Mr. Swlgert
"I don't know," he replied, "that any
such statement had been made, but it
would have to be proved to me before I
would believe it Such a statement is
absurd on its face and is not warranted.
"I hardly think that the bridges will
ever be closed, but I do believe that
present conditions can be relieved by con
cessions on both sides."
GRUESOME MONTH'S EE CO ED
Suicides, Murders and Fatalities for
February Announced by Coroner.
Fivo suicides, one murder, two women
burned to death, one man killed in a
street-car accident, one man drowned and
four sudden deaths from heart failure
comprised the remarkable record in the
office of Coroner Finley for February.
The police were also very busy during the
month, many arrests having been made.
Special attention was given to the en
forcement of the ordinance which speci
fies that saloons must- close from 1 to
5 A. M.
The drinkers headed the list of ar

STEAMER ABAGO, OF ENGINEERS' DEPARTMENT.
ARAGO A SUCCESS
Trial Trip of New Coast Sur
FIRST RUN SHOWS GOOD TIME
Guests Invited by the Builders Are
Taken Down to 'the Mouth of
of the Craft.
The new seagoing coast" survey steamer
Arago, built at the yards of the Port
land" Shipbuilding Company for "the
United States Engineers, had a trial run
down the river yesterday afternoon. The
test was a success in every way. The
little boat's engines worked perfectly and
she developed a speed of fully 11 knots
on the run. Captain Chris Olsen was at
the wheel and he said she steered like a
yacht He took the steamer a short
distance below the mouth of the "Willam
ette, leaving the dock of the "Willamette
Iron "Works at 2 P. M. and returning
shortly after 5 o'clock. Several guests, in
vited by the builders, were aboard.
The Arago is to be stationed at Coos
Bay, and takes the place of the old sur
vey steamer George "Wright She will
operate along the coast tfetween Coos
Bay and the Columbia River, taking
soundings In connection with harbor im
provements. The steamer was designed
by Fred A. Ballin, naval architect of this
city. Her length is S3 feet C Inches over
all. she has 18 feet beam. 9 feet depth of
hold, will draw 6 feet 6 Inches in salt
water and has a displacement of SO tons.
She cost about $25,000.
The contract was taken by the "Willam
ette Iron & Steel "Works, which provided
the machinery, but sublet the contract
for the hull to the Portland Shipbuilding
Company. The Arago greatly resembles
the Quartermasters' steamer Major Guy
Howard, but Is somewhat larger. She
has accommodations in the forecastle for
a crew of eight men and the after com
partment is provided with staterooms for
the captain, engineer and mates, seven
berths being provided. On the -upper deck
is. a large deckhouse containing galley,
pantry, wardroom, two staterooms for
Government officials, toilet-rooms and
other conveniences. On the top of tho
deckhouse is located a large pilot-house,
which will also be used as a drafting
room for the surveyors.
The hull is constructed of Oregon fir
and oak, the construction of the planking
being diagonal, thus giving the vessel
considerable strength. Throughout the
steamer Is equipped with electric light,
furnished by a direct connected G. B.
The steamer has a single screw driven
by compound condensing engines, 10 and
22 by 14 inches, of 250 horse-power. The
boiler is cylindrical, eight feet in diame
ter by feet In length, fitted with a 42
lnch corrugated suspension furnace. The
boiler is allowed 165 pounds of steam,
working pressure. ,
TACOMA CAUGHT IN THE ICE
Blockade-Runner May Yet Fall In

SEATTLE. "Wash., Feb. 28. It Is
now believed beyond doubt that the
steamship Tacoma was caught by the
Arctic ice floes while attempting to
pass through the Sayo Straits, en
route to Vladivostok, with a cargo of.
salt beef for the Russians. Cable ad
vices to that effect were received here
thi3 afternoon by the owners of the
Japanese warships are In that vicinity,
and herv capture is expected at any

More Wheat Shipped to Europe Than
at This Time ''Last Year.
One grain ship sailed from Portland for
Europe In the month Just closed, the
French bark Eugenie FautreL carrying
110,015 bushels of wheat This, with the
shipments to California, made a total of
191.941 bushels sent from this port by
water in February, as compared with
266,440 shipped In the same month last
year. Flour shipments to the Orient
and California aggregated 62,840 barrels
as against 75,631 barrels In February,
1904. "Wheat shipments from the Puget
Sound ports last month were only E0.163
Sound ports last month were only E0.163

In spite of the changed conditions in
the wheat market this Winter, it Is inter

from Portland to Europe since the season
opened have been greater than they were
ih the corresponding period last season.

Now that the removal-of the Imped!
ment to navigation on the Columbia
caused by the Celilo Falls is assured.
tho Open-River Association is turning
its attention to provisions for han
dllng upper-river commerce. Until the
Government canal is completed, the
state portage road will furnish tem
porary relief, but in order to give the
territory above Celilo Fans any bene
fit It is necessary that "boats be placed
above the falls. Big- Eddy, at tho
lower end of the rapids, is at present
the height of free navigation of the
Columbia River, but it is impossible to
place boats plying1 to that point above
This will necessitate the construction
of craft above Celilo, and It is probable
that some Inducement will be offered
to steamship companies to supply such
mode of commerce. A meeting of tho
Open-River Association is now being
arranged, which will probably be held
some time this week. At that meeting
the question of transportation above
the falls will bs taken up, and steps

Portland's remarkable growth can be
illustrated in no better way than by a
report of the amount of money that is
handled through the local banks and
when It is considered that this report
Is not taken at a time of unusual activ
ity in the business world, but rather
represents the actual amount of money
passing through the Portland clearing
house and the amounts on hand at the
various banks In actual cash at a time
of the year when business is ordinarily
nearly dormant It is a wonderful show
ing. That the proportionate growth of the
city's business may be shown the re
port for the year of 1903 is given here
with: Clearings, J175.6S6.622.53. Balances
on hand at the close of business of that
year, 525,017,094.961 Last year the clear
ings amounted to $1S3,051.459.92 which
shows that there was 513.45 ,847.39 more
business transacted through the banks
of Portland during 1504 than the year
previous. The balances on hand in the
banks at the close of business on Decem
ber 31, 1904, amounted to $25,537,621.32 or

ing the month just passed the
sum of 514.064.630.51 passed through

most wonderful showing that has been
