Sites No. 1 and 2. one on the East
Side at the foot of East Washington
street, and the other from the foot of
Fourteenth to the foot of Seventeenth

other improvements on the sites and

15 days. If work can be started in
September at least the foundations
could be completed during the Fall
low water season, which extends to
the latter part of December.
All piling have been driven on the
two sites to ascertain the character
of the riverbed and below and En
gineer Hegardt says that there is ex
cellent foundation at both.
BAR CHAXXEXj IS WIDEXIXG
Tiisfnni-e Retueen 30 -Foot Carves
Decreased 3000 Feet In Year.
In one year there has been a reduc
tion of 300 feet in the distance be
tween 30-foot curves inside and out
side of the Columbia River bar. For
a distance of 10,000 feet across the face
of the bar there is no spot on which
less than 24 feet of water prevails at
mean lower low tide. For a consider
able distance across the face of the
bar there is from i" to 27 feet.
Those are a few of the things that
have been reported to Major Molndoe,
Corps of Engineers, IT. S. A., follow
ing the completion of the annual sur
vey. In relation to the greatest depth
'shown In the survey of June. 1911,
there is no material change this sea
son, but the increased width of from
8000 to 10,000 feet and the decrease
from 9000 to 6000 feet In the space
separating the 30-foot curves, is in
dicative that the south jetty Is doing
the work, but there is not sufficient
"It Is plainly shown from the sur
vey that the north jetty is needed, but
even though the depth has not been
added to I am pleased with the fact
the channel Is widening," said Major
aicinaoe. nnen ne wus assigned tu
this district four years ago the width
of the ohannel on the bar was 4700
ORIENTAL LIXE TJXDECIDED
Waterhouse Expects liar rl man Fam
ily to Pay Losses.'
Frank Waterhouse, who is passing a
few days here in an endeavor to close
negotiations with the O.-W. R. & N.,
says he expects details concerning the
future operation of the Oriental steam
ship line to be decided on next week.
Promises have been made, he says, it
the railroad - Interests shoulder the
losses, that during the cotton season
shipments will be routed here from the
South. Instead of all going to San Fran
cisco or Puget Sound.
But Mr. Waterhouse has a decidedly
dismal viewpoint of the far Eastern
trade. He says that not a line on the
Coast operating either from British Co
lumbia, Puget Sound. Portland or San
Francisco has ever paid, and that while
chartering for the fleet steaming from
here has been done at 3 shillings, the
rate will be at least i shillings, and
some steamers have been taken at 7
and 8 shillings. He wants the railroad
Interests to shoulder the shortage
which he declares will come from the
operation of the line after September,
and estimates roughly that there will
be a deficit of $7200 on each voyage.
A5IARAXTH TO RETURN HERE
British Yeoman and Lord Templeton
Are Chartered for Lumber.
Though yet loading lumber here for
a voyage to Australia, which she will
make on a charter rate of 62s 6d, the
barkentine Amaranth has been fixed by
Hind. Rolph & Company for another
trip to the same destination, with the
rate at 65s. an advance of 12s 6d. and
the jump in freights has been made in
three months. Owners are reported to
be asking 67s 6d for the voyage, and it
is not doubted but. that they will re
ceive the figure shortly. .
J. J. Moore Sc Co.. of San Francisco,
have chartered the British barks British
Yeoman and Lord Templeton to load
lumber on the Columbia River or Puget
Sound for Sydney, with the option of
South Africa or the West Coast. The
Lord Templeton was taken at 51s 2d
to Sydney or 76s 3d to South Africa.
The vessel is at Newcastle, Australia,
loading coal for San Francisco. The
British Teoman was taken for 50s to
Sydney or 75s to South Africa. She Is
on the way from Port Natal for New
castle .to work a coal cargo.
MILITIA 3LVXETJVERS PLAXXED
Californlans Want Washlngtonians
and Orcgonians to Gather.
T-1--- h.r. l 'derided oblectlon
on the part of the Navy Department the
naval militia organizations of Cali
fornia, Washington and Oregon may
maneuver together next Summer off
the Northwest Coast. The first step to-
ward such a meeting was taken during
the stay of the cruiser Marblehead and
when she sailed yesterday for fort
Angeles it had been thoroughly dls
cUBsed that the vessel should meet with
the monitor Wyoming, of Washing
ton. and tHe cruiser Boston, of Oregon
and if possible the three bodies pitted
in tarsret Dractlce.
It was possible for the Oregon Naval
Militia officers to arrange but one en
tertalnment for the visitors and that
was in the form of a dinner at the
Commercial Club Thursday evening, at
which Adjutant-General Finser, of the
Oregon National Guard, told or now
California had aided in starting the
Oregon Naval Militia. He said that in
his opinion it would continue to go
ahead, as in Its ranks were now mus
tered the most desirable men who had
ever Seen identified with It.
CUSTOM-HOCSE SHOWS GROWTH
Yearly Digest Indicates Gradua
Gain in Commerce of Port. '
In the annual report of the Custom
House for the year ending June 30,
1912, several Illustrations are given of
the gradual Increase in maritime busi
ness here, except that the taking over
of the Portland & Asiatic fleet by the
Waterhouse line, and the merging of
the two, reduced the number of entries
from foreign ports from 24 vessels in
1910-11 to 17 for the last year, conse
quently the number of vessels to clear
fell off from 91 to 88.
The number of carriers to enter from
coastwise ports was increased from 904
to 955 and those to clear for domestic
ports gained from S03 to 8S1. The
value of foreign exports was $3301 and
of domestic exports $9,976,927. while
last year the latter was valued at
$9,791,225. Foreign imports for the
year ending last month were worth
$2,739,841 and a year ago they were
$2,662,616. There were hut 53 docu
ments issued to vessels during the
1910-11 period and last year the total
was 98 vessels. There were 2452' entries
of merchandise and duties netted
$646 211.97, all other customs receipts
being $2277.80 and navigation receipts
$2023.70. the aggregate receipts
amounting to $650,513.47.

Jacobs swore that after he testified
last Wednesday concerning Hanford's

were to go to these places and in

THIRD PARTY III BUSY
PROGRESSIVE CLUB TO MEET
AGAIX MOXDAY XIGHT.
Plans Will Be Laid for Sending
Delegates to Roosevelt Conven
tion on August 5.
Vitally important business awaits the
consideration of the National progres
slve Club of Oregon, which will hold
an adjourned meeting in the East Side
Library Monday night. The club will
proceed first to effect a permanent
organization. It will then discuss and
probably decide upon some method of
insuring representation from the pro
posed third carty organization in this
state at the convention the Roosevelt
leaders have called in Chicago August 6.
Under the call issued by Senator
Dixon, chairman of the committee In
charge, the plan ia to have the Chicago
convention consist of about one-half
the number of delegates that partici
pated in the Republican convention In
the same city last montn. unis woura
give Oregon five delegates, or one dele
gate for each member in Congress from
this state. This basis was recommended
by Senator Dixon and his colleagues ror
determining the representation from
the various states.
It remains for the club, which, by
its name,' Is a state organization, to Bee
that Oregon is represented at the com
ing convention,"' said Dan Kellaher,
temporary chairman of the club, yester
day. "The members Monday night will
be asked to provide some plan tor se
lecting delegates and certifying them
to the Chicago convention. Although
the state Is entitled to five delegates.
the progressives could entrust their
representation to any one or two who
might be chosen. The delegates would
be instructed in advance and could be
depended upon to fulfill their pledges.
"The delegates that are elected nec
essarily will be obliged to pay their
own expenses. There is no provision
in the Oregon law, I believe, under
which these delegates can expect to be
reimbursed by the state to the amount
of $200 for their actual necessary ex
penses, as was paid the delegates to the
Republican and Democratio National
in the last week I have received a
artre number of letters from Republi
cans in all parts of the state who are
in sympathy with the purposes of the
National Progressive Club. They de
mand that the state send delegates, to
the Chicago convention."
Mr. Kellaher said yesterday , the ques
tion of nominating a full set of "pro
rreosive" candidates for the various
