Big Demand Assured bat Supply Is
Dubious and Dealers Are Chary
About Predicting- Prices.
Portland poultry dealers, both whole
salers and retailers, have not been able
to make up their minds yet as to the
probable course of the Thanksgiving
turkey market. They have no doubts
aa to the sixe of the demand, but they
are still In the dark as to tha supply.
The demand Is sure to be heavy and
It la safe to say more turkeys will be
consumed In Portland this year than
ever before. Portland has always been
the best turkey market In the Pacific
Northwest, because It has been the
most prosperoua city.
Aa for the available supply, thla will
not be known for a week at least. The
dealers hare been trying to get some
Information on thla acore from the
Valley turkey sections, but the only
reports that have come out are of a
short crop. They have beard thla so
often, however, that they do not place
entire faith In the growers' advance
information. Without definite word to
the contrary. the dealera are disposed
to estimate the turkey crop larger
than last year. The season has been a
most favorable one for the growing
of turkeys, and besides this Industry
haa been steadily growing for the last
few years, since turkey raising became
such a profitable buslnesa.
The reports that have come from
Idaho all Indicate a large supply, but
It la uncertain yet In what markets
the Idaho turkeys will be disposed of.
No announcement has been made yet
of any Eastern turkeys having been
bought for this market, but It Is prob
able that several cars will be brought
along. The Eastern turkey markets
ara high, however, and there will not
be much object In aelllng auch stock
hare unless the home supply proves to
be very light.
The Impression prevails that prices
will be about the same as last year,
but none of the dealers Is willing to
go on record and predict a definite

ASTORIA BORERS PROPOSED
ITerr Port Commission Is Assured

In an effort to decrease the cost of

away with at leaet one Item Included
In alleged excessive port expenses here,
as compared with other harbors, and
at the same time draw a greater amount
of tonnage to the Columbia River, the
Port of Astoria, recently organized, is
to Investigate a plan of establishing
bunkers there, that all steamers may
get bunker supplies.
Realizing the importance of the step.
President Means, of the Port of Port

Astoria will build the bunkers and fur
nish the coal the Port of Portland will
do all In Its power to furnish tugs
in the slack Summer period to tow
coal barges from Comox or other mine
points In the North. With the expense
of transportation lowered. It is be
lieved that fuel can be furnished aa
cheap as on Puget Sound. When tramp
steamers loading here for offshore har
bors are short of fuel they customarily
take on only enough to carry them to
Comox, Nanoimo or Puget Sound, and
there replonish the bunkers. With a
station at Astoria, they could load to
a greater draft here, and In coaling
there save the extra trip up the Coast-

Ssn Francisco Company Sued for
$71,149.00 for Loss of Raft.
ASTORIA. Or.. Nov. 10. (Special.)
A suit was filed lu the Circuit Court
today by the Hammond Lumber Com
pany against the Ship Owners' and
Merchants' Tugboat Company, of San
Francisco.' to recover 171.249.90, for the
loss of the piling raft that went to
pieces on Peacock Spit laat September,
and a libel waa placed on the defend
ants' tug Dauntless, which was pre
paring to sail from here today with
the barge Amy Turner In tow.
The complaint alleges that on Au
gust 20 the plaintiff made a contract
with the defendant, whereby the latter
Was to tow a piling raft to San Fran
cisco for a consideration of $2'50, on
September . says the complaint, the
plaintiff delivered f the defendant a
rafting containing 5S2.49S lineal feet
of piling and spars valued at 259.249.90
and also containing chain, shackles,
turn buckles and other appliances
worth 212.000. making the total value
of the raft 271.249.90.
Continuing, the complaint asserts
that to tow the raft the defendant used
the tugs Dauntless and Hercules, and
these vessels started to sea with the
tow on that date, but the defendant so
negligently and carelessly handled the
raft that it was lost. The weather and
other conditions at the time were fa
vorable, but aa is usual at that stage
of the tide, the current at the mouth
of the river set to the north. This
fact, the defendant's agents knew, but
Instead of keeping to the south slda
of the channel they took the north side
with the result that the raft stranded
on Peacock Spit- The complaint also
alleges that the officers and crew of
the tug Dauntless, without, any cause,
let go the tow line and purposely
abandoned the raft and by reason of
that the raft drifted onto the Spit.
Even after the tow line had been re
leased and the raft turned loose, says
the complaint, there was ample time
for the tugs to have picked it up again,
but they negligently refused to do so.
Today Sheriff Burns took charge of
the tug Dauntless and placed Deputy
George Splcer on board her. Captain

Manifesting a get-ogether disposi

Joseph Blethen, president of the Seattle
Golden Potlatch, Is In Portland today
for a conference with Ralph W. Hoy,
president, and the other officers of the
Portland Rose Festival Association.
The desire for co-operation Is mutual
on the part of the managements of the
Potlatch and the Rose Festival and to
day'a conference Is expected to have
Having raised more money, the peo
ple of Seattle are planning to make
their Potlatch next year a much bigger
event than the original effort, last
Summer. Mr. Blethen comes to this
city to study, among other things, fi
nances, parades, decorating and the
programme of spectacular features
which made the last Rose Festival In
this city the big success it proved.
This investigation was suggested to
Mr. Blethen by the fact that the man
agement of the Rose Festival Associa
tion was able to give the week's enter
tainment with a fund of only 242,000,
while the Seattle people expended about
164.000 for their Potlatch.
Most important of the subjects to be
considered at today's conference Is
that of determining upon some plan of
operation by which the two cltlea by
their united efforts can promote the
success of both shows.
"Our plan Is to make the Summer of
1912 a season of continuous gayety
for both Portland and Seattle In the
entertainment of the thousands of
tourists who will next year visit the
Pacific Northwest." said Mr. Hoyt yes
terday. "An Interchange of ideas will
doubtless prove instructive and helpful
to both cities. With the Rose Festival,
the Elka convention and the Seattle
Potlatch coming as they do during the
mid-Summer, there Is no question but
that there will be an abundance of en
tertainment for all.
"We are more than delighted with the
disposition that has been shown by the
managements of the Rose- Festival and
the Potlatch to work shoulder to shoul
der and make of both shows the big
success and the splendid advertisement
of the Pacific Northwest that It is pos
sible to make them."
