The Commission authorised the eras
ure of a charge of $' against the
French bark KJouard Detallle. because
.he had 4'I tops of wheat stiffening
aboard when docked and it was agreed
that a ruling ehould be made to admit
wheat stiffening under such circum
stance, as though it were ballast.
Comrl-unt male by the Star Sand
Company that material previously
dredged had worked Into the channel,
near Mount Coffin, and that It forces
vessels to head close to that point, endangering-
craft moored there, was re
ferred to tlr dredging department, fn
connection with the request of the
Multnomah Lumber at Bos 'Factory for
drriU-ing between It plant and that of
t!-e Portland Lumber Company that
rleep-draft vessels can be fully loaded. It

In aa opinion by Williams. Wood A
JJnthlcnm, It la set forth that even
though the Port of Portlsnd did not
tow the Russian bark Isabel Browne
Into p-.rt. the fact that one of Its pilots
was aboard gives the Commission au
thority to collect- for the pilotage.

Scarcity of tonnage at other than
prohibitive rates Is curtailing: Port
land's exportation to tha Australian
lumber market. K'xporters sfflrro
that there la an abundance of business

said to be Insignificant compared with
the Australian demand and almost any
kind of a carrier will be accepted for
the business. f

A largo team outfit is working at

mile north from that point. The
sixth and seventh miles are covered by
station gangs. Most of the cuts over
this section have been opened and an
other shovel has been put in between
the eighth and the ninth mile posts to
handle heavy cuts on that section. The
shovels are prepared to complete such
portions of the seventh mile a? are not

L.09 Angeles Police Arrest Man on
Charge of Passing Worthless
-Checks In California.
Osoar A. Jackson, who was sen
tenced last January to a year in the
Penitentiary and was Immediately
paroled, is in the custody of the Lqs
Angeles police, according to a tele
gram received yesterday from p. E.
Sebastian, Chief of Police of that city,
by Sheriff Stevens' office. The Los An
geles authorities want Jackson ex
tradited to Multnomah County and
made to serve his sentence In this
The communication from Los An
geles says the honor prisoner has been
guilty of passing in that city about
ten worthless checks drawn on Port
land banks. He is not liable to prose
cution, however, as the checks were
post-dated. Obtaining money on
checks dated in advance is not in
cluded In the criminal category of the
majority of states, among them Cali
fornia and Oregon.
"If the Sheriff or District Attorney
will bring this man Jackson back to
Portland I will see that his parole Is
revoked. sSjid Judge McGinn.
One .of the conditions of a parole is
that the man sentenced must not leave
the jurisdiction of the court. In going
to California Jackson has thus violated
his parole and is liable to extradition
and the revocation of his parole.
Deputy Sheriff Holllngsworth said yes
terday that if Judge McGinn was will
ing to send Jackson to Salem he would
at once start proceedings to have the
prisoner brought here.
Jackson, wha was held on a charge
of securing money under false pre
tenses, pleaded guilty- before Judge
McGinn on January 20 to having
obtained $65 In this manner and was
then sentenced and paroled.
