BY NEW SCHEDULE
American - Hawaiian 'Steam
ship Company to Use Te
SHIP DUE EVERY 11 DAYS
Citj Will Now linjoy Two I-lhmus
Lin-, la Transhipments and Can
Rid More Mrongly for I.uni
" br and Shingles Cargoes.
When the steamer Califorulnn nailed
from .New Tork Monday with tar go
for the Pacific Coart that mill be trans
shipped via the Tehuantepec route,
tt.e new plan of the American Hawai
ian steamship Company that include
rort!iuil on a direct schedule went Into
effect, it was learned yesterday when
I. Kennedy. Portland aaent. re
ceived a teleicram sotting forth that
the freight would be loaded on this
side aboard the steamer 1-tlimlan.
The iMhmlan will sail from Saltna
Crux, the western end of the rail line
across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. so
as to reach San Francisco June i and
Is to sail for Portland June S, airiv-
inc here June 11 and leave on the re
turn June 13.
Sl.e wilt be followed by the Nevadan.
Nebraskan and Lyra. The IMhmlan
sailed from San Francisco yesterday,
heading south, and as yet It la not
known what amount of cargo she will
have on the return.
Blsr I acreage Predicted.
The rate on eastbound cargo, that
destined for the Atlantic side. Is the
same from San Dleco and all other
ports as far north as the terminus of ;
the line at Seattle. Portland shippers
enjoy the same tarift as their rom
petitors on the Coast and as the com
Ing of the four large steamers means
that this port will hare much mnri
trace than with only the steamer Kal
con operating. It Is expected that there
will be a big Increase In the movemcn
by watrr. In the past the bulk of the
lumber and shingles handled by the
American-Hawaiian has been from
Puget Sound points and now It In In
tended to encourage the shipment of
thone commodities from Portland. Of
-ourjie no full cargoes will be accepted
for the Atlantic side, but parcels-of It
nil! lie taken.
The steamer Falcon will continue
running between Portland and San
Francisco a a transfer vessel tintl
the isthmian reaches the Oolden (Sate,
hut It has not been decided In what
business she will he used afterward
. her charter continues In force. Her
owners are the Charles Nelson Com
Portland will enjoy two direct lines
from the two Isthmus routes, as the
California A Atlantic plies via the
Isthmus of Panama, but so far h
given only a monthly service and as
there is a scarcity of tonnnge, com
Mned with the shipment of freight on
the Panama Railroad being; limited.
there Is small prospect for an Improve
ment. The American-Hawaiian's ne"
schedule means that there will be I
steamer here every It days.
la addition to the service to domestic
rort of the I'nlted States the Amer!
ran-Hawallan accepts cargo for Eunn
nesn. Mexican and Central American
ports, under through rates and bills of
tin the Atlantic side there Is a steam
er sailing from the Bush Terminal
South Brooklyn, every six days and
correcting with the raH line, so as to
rea.-h vessels of the Taclfic fleet
rut along the Columbia River Is being;
loaded aboard the Herman ship Ketbke,
which is working at l.lnnton. and the
British ship Kirkcudbrightshire, which
was towed yesterday from Prescott to
St. Helens to finish and both will be
dispatched for the United Kingdom
by the Pacific Export Lumber Com
pany. Most of each cargo is made up of
timbers, some being but 12x12 inches
In diameter and there are assorted di
mensions as large aa 14x14 Inchea in
diameter and lengths run to 90 feet.
Millmen aver that 0 per cent of the
heavier sticks undoubtedly will be used
on the other side for spars and while
the purpose for which all Is Intended
has not been ascertained. It Is thought
that some of the larger pieces will be
regawed. There Is also considerable
material In the two cargoes In the way
of boards. The Heinbek will carry
:.350,00 feet and the Kirkcudbright
shire 1.30.O'O feet. The same com
pany will load the schooner M. Turner
for New Zealand. She Is finishing
cargo on Gray, Harbor for Mexico and
is to return to the river in Julv. The
Pnclflc Export interests also will have
space on the Japanese steamer Manda-

City Engineer Hurlhurt was attacked
for employing four foremen for IS men i
and City Health Officer Wheeler was
peremptorily ordered to cease purchas- I
Ing supplies In dribbles for the city
peat house and to buy wholesale where
ever possible, at the meeting of. the
ways and means committee of the City I
Council yesterday afternoon.
Councilman Magulre called Into ques
tion the wisdom of paying four fore
men for 15 men In the sewer depart
ment, which Is under the supervision of
the City Engineer, and Councilman
Burgard moved that Health Officer
Wheeler he ordered to purchase sup
plies for his department In wholesale
Councilman Mrnetee remarked that
he believed "such statements aa the one
made by Mr. Magulre, that on & certain
sera-er job, the men had not seen the
foreman for six weeks, should be verified."
Maaralre Frosalaea Proof,
Ton't rou think for a minute that
can't verify what I have said," heat
elly retorted Mr. Magulre. "I told the
City Engineer about this."
In making his motion to eliminate
from the payroll two of the four fore
men who have been supervising 15
men. Councilman Magulre used unprlnt
ablo language, emphasizing his views
Members of the committee called In
Chief Assistant Hanson. Mr. Ilurlburt
being absent from his office, hut Mr.
Hanson knew little or nothing as to
hy so many foremen are employed
for so fern- men. He said, however, that
they probably are supervising small
crews and that one foreman probably
haa a small number of men under bin
charge, but that a foreman Is needed
for any number of men, no matter how
'How about a crew where the men
had not seen their foreman for six
weeks?"- Queried Mr. Me.nefee.
Mr. Hanson said he could not tell
about that: perhaps the foreman was
sick, he suggested.
Mr. Mencfee moved that the City En
gineer be Instructed to report on this
Pee Hoist Cornea High.
Councilman Burgard said he felt as
Mr. Magulre: that too many foremen
are employed and that "one of these
men always attends Council sessions
throughout." He said It might be a
good Idea for this individual to do
some work outside occasionally, ne
mentioned no name.
Mr. Burgard then moved to order
City Health Officer Wheeler to pur
chase pest house supplies at wholesale.
Instead of In small lota, as nas neen
the custom. The motion carried, i ne
