COMMITTEES GET TO WORK.
The following: are the committees of
the four commercial organlrations of
Portland which conferred yesterday
morning on the establishment of a
steamship line to Alaska, and which
will canvass the city Saturday to
ascertain whether the merchants and
shippers are willing: to guarantee the
steamship company a certain amount
for the first year:

From the present indications it looks
very much as though the recent agita
tion for the establishment of a steam
snip line between Portland and Alas
kan points will materialize into some
thing definite. Four commercial or
zanizations of Portland, the Chamber
of Commerce, Commercial Club, the
Manufacturers' Association and the
Board of Trade have put their shoul
ders to the wheel and are working for
a. common purpose to secure for this
city . part of the enormous Alaskan
Representative committees from each
of , the four commercial organizations
met yesterday morning In the parlors
at the Commercial Club, and a plan of
campaign was mapped out to induce
the merchants and other business men
of this city to guarantee sufficient ton
nage or passengers for one or more
steamships, should the line be estab
lished. Options on Three Steamships.
As has been published, the Board of
Trade has options on three suitable
vessels, two of which are new. Satur
day the members of the four committees
which took part in the conference of
yesterday morning and which have
been amalgamated Into one general
committee, will makft a thorough can
vass of the merchants of Portland, and
ascertain whether they are willing to
share the responsibility of closing the
The conference of yesterday morning
"was .characterized by a universal senti
ment In favor of the line. There was
not one dissenting factor, and in fact
all present seemed very enthusiastic
over the matter as it now stands.
Outlines the Proposition.
When the conference began President
"Wallis Nash, of the Board of Trade,
was elected chairman. JJ.e thereupon
gave a complete outline of the proposi
tions which had been made by the
steamship companies. He said options
liad been secured on three steamships,
of tonnage over 2030 tons each anj
capablo of carrying more than 200 pas
sengers. He said Portland would have to
guarantee the owners of the ships a
certain amount for the first year, and
that they would continue on the line
two years more under contract without
guarantee. In the case of one vessel he
said the round trip could be made In
20 days, and by two ships within, ten
General Discussion Begins.
Then the general discussion began. It
was finally decided that it would be ad
visable to start with one steamship, in
asmuch as other vessels could be se
cured If the trade justified increased
transportation facilities. The contract
provides that the company must put on
another vessel in case only one is
taken at first upon a 100-day notice at
any time the agreement is in force.
It was stated at the conference that
the Harrixnan interests were friendly
to the enterprise. The matter lias been
taken up with some of the high offi
cials of the Harriman lines to ascer
tain whether they would lend their as
sistance. A resolution was passed forming the
The Joint meeting held yesterday morn
ing between representatives of the four
leading commercial bodies of this city
bids fair to start Portland in the race
for Alaskan trade with every reasonable
prospect of winning out. Three ideas
were suggested. The first, that Portland
should purchase and own steamships for
this "business. This was dismissed as pre
mature, to say the least, and as involving
wearisome delay. The second, that ships
should be chartered by Portland people
and run by them, and at their risk. This
was set aside for the sufficient reason
that no suitable ships could be had on
the Pacific Coast, and none secured from
the East in any reasonable time. The
third, that ships should be obtained which
were" available for this run now, and by
which a permanent line could be estab
lished for at least three years.
On this head two propositions had been
obtained by the Board of Trade, each of
which put one or two steamships at the
disposal of Portland merchants and ship
pers for three years, a minimum of re
turns to be guaranteed for the first year.
All rates for fares and freights to be ad
Justed to competitve rates from other
Pacific Coast ports. Each of the ships
To provide for a large number of passen
gers and for 000 tons of freight all serv
Ico to be first-class in its nature, and
the steamships to have a sea speed of not
less than 12 knots an hour.
Details of this plan will have to be
worked out, but as a whole, and in gen
eral terms, it received unanimous sup
port of the constituent committees. To
ascertain how much support can be relied
on, the general committee divided itself
up into subcommittees of two each. By
these gentlemen a systematic canvass
will bo made of the city on Saturday
next, the business section being districted
for that purpose.
An adjourned committee meeting on
Tuesday next will receive and tabulate
Long talked of. Indefinitely discussed,
the entry of Portland Into the Alaskan
trade Is now before the city on a1 plain,
comprehensive basis. Guarantees will
take- the form of money but they may
be discharged at the end ef each trip in
representatives from the four organi
zations into one general committee.
Tliia in turn was divided Into, sub-committees
of two members each, which
will make a full canvass of the busi
ness men and shippers of this city on
Saturday, to find out the amount of
money, freight or fares they will guar
antee the vessel for one year. The re
sults will bo reported at an adjourned
meeting to be held Tuesday afternoon
at S o'clock. The report of the sub
cpmmlttees will undoubtedly decide the
fate of thiB particular enterprise. In
the meanwhile President Nash ha
wired the steamship owners to hold
their offers open until the result of the
canvass can be ascertained.
As an example of the immense pro
portions the Alaska trade lias as
sumed, a report was submitted at the
conference showing that the aggrogatc
of Seattle's business with Alaska last
year amounted to $11,700,000. The
Chamber of Commerce yesterday after
noon also received a report from the
customs officials at Skagway which
showed that domestic merchandise Im
ports for 1905 were greater than those
of 1904 by $3,707,225, and that year In
turn exceeded 1903 bv $2,032,792.
