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 scouring. "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 feet. 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.

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.

' 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.

I do not usually inoulre about the poli tics of persons recommended for appoint ment as Commissioners, but loyalty and a belief that the National Government may rightfully exercise its lawful autnorlty in all. places are qualifications for the office, and when the time comes for making an appointment I will not regard Mr. Weppler as a suitable person unless 1 am assured that he is not a supporter of the Chicago platform or of the candidates for office who subscribe to its declarations.

'Don't you know that the effect of Judge Hanford's letter would have been to disqualify 6,000,000 American voters from holding officer' asked Chairman Graham. A person who calls for a "Judge Hanford Martini" at any one of nine downtown saloons Is likely to be served at once with a "dry Martini, with an onion in it instead of a stuffed olive, according to the testimony of George M. Jacobs, a real estate dealer, who was recalled today. Jacobs swore that after he testified last Wednesday concerning Hanford's alleged visits to saloons he was taken to task by a broker, who told him that he would be ostracised by the business men for his testimony. Witness testi fled that he told the broker that he had to tell the truth when he was on the" witness-stand and challenged the broker to a test of his evidence. Drink: Wager Novel. Witness testified that he gave the broker a list of nine saloons and the men laid a wager by whose terms they were to go to these places and in each call for a "Judge Hanford Mar tini." If the bartender, without hesi tation, prepared a martini with onion instead of olive, thenthe broker should pay for the liquor: if the bartender did not understand the order, Jacobs was to pay. witness testified.

Witness testified that be challenged his companion to visit any of the places and ask for "Judge Han ford's favorite whisky ; if a certain brand were not produced witness would pay. The challenge was declined, witness testified. John Arthur, an attorney, testified that for 10 or 15 years he and Han ford had taken a drink together twice a month in three saloons which he named. Witness testified that Hanford was an exceedingly temperate man on all occasions, even at dinners that continued until 3:30 or 4 A. M.

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 conventions. 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 state, legislative and county offices. In this state, had not been suggested or considered. "We will first provide for delegates from Oregon to the Chicago convention," said Mr. Kellaher. "After this Important matter has been disposed of, plenty of time will remain to nomi nate such candidates for office on a progressive' ticket as may De aeemea advisable."
