Major Mclndoe Takes Up
Project of Dams and Locks
in Willamette River.
Captain Graham Points Ont Enor
mous Advantage of Opening
Upper River to Perma
nent Passage.
What is viewed as the. most im
portant project yet planned for the
improvement of navigation conditions
on the Upper Willamette River and
for the enlargement of commerce on
that stream is a step taken by Major
Mclndoe. Corps of Engineers, IT. 8. A.,
in letters forwarded to steamboat in
terests, commercial clubs and business
men of the Willamette Valley, asking
for their views as to the probable in
crease in commerce if Congress de
cided to install a system of dams and
locks that will open the stream from
Portland to Eugene, 160 miles.
Major Mclndoe has Inaugurated the
preliminaries pursuant to the provi
sions of an act passed by Congress and
approved June 25, 1912. providing for
an examination of the river from Ore
gon City to Corvallis, 115 miles, and
from the latter point to Eugene, with
a view of providing a six-foot channel
for the entire distance. While the im
provement considered is for locks and
dams, it is asked that propositions be
submitted for co-operation on the part
of the people of the Valley.
Conicrena Most Be Convinced.
Congress must be convinced that the
increase In commerce will justify tho
expenditure and property owners of
the Valley will be expected to shoulder
a part of the expense, probably
through the formation of a taxable
district, such as the Port of Portland.
"On the Ohio River the( locks and
dams Jiave been in use for a lengthy
period and I am told that in places the
river is backed up a distance of 70
miles and the current deadened," said
Captain A. B. Graham, of the Oregon
City Transportation Company, after re
ceiving a copy of the letter. "On the
Willamette a condition exists that only
water transportation, available the
year around and uninterrupted so far
as channel depths figure, will remedy
and that is the reclamation of low
land that lines the stream, regarded
by agriculturists as the richest of
ail, yet now dormant because of lack
of shipping facilities. Between cor
vallis and Eugene Is plenty of such
acreage and instead of crops it now
bears willows.
DrrdKlng Alone Will Hot Do.
"Between Oregon City and Corvallis
there Is more of the same character of
land, but much of it is in use and
those who even till the overflow acre
age are the ones who provide early
fruits and vegetables and those things
that are In demand at canneries for
pickling. But today we are handi
capped by lack of water, because It is
apparent that, dredging alone will not
Temedy the defects, as the river bed
changes so swiftly that a good road
cannot be maintained. Virtually from
June 1 to November 1 there is no traf
ffic above Mission Landing. Salem is
cut off from the benefits of water
competition the same as Corvallis.
Steamers cannot run at the season
they are most needed, as it is during
the Summer and early Fall periods
that harvesting is on.
"Besides special steamers must be
constructed now to meet the condi
tions, they being decidedly light draft
and expensive to build. If there is a
six-foot channel provided it will mean
that deeper draft vessels can be used,
which would be no benefit to our line,
out allow persons who own such car
riers to operate them on the run, as
with an open river to Eugene there
would be plenty of business for all.
About 25 years ago steamers reached
Eugene, but there has been no regular
travel by large vessels for many sea
sons. Lower Rates Would Follow.
"The big benefit will be to shippers
and the public in the way of rate re
ductions. That is shown in a compari
son between Eugene and Corvallis. The
rail rate, first-class, from Portland to
Corvallis. which is 89 miles by rail, is
2 cents on 100 pounds. The rail rate
to Eugene. 124 miles. Is 46 cents on
first-class shipments, the latter hav
ing no benefit from water competi
tion." Major Mclndoe has asked that all
. Tesponses be forwarded to his office
by October 31 and it Is expected that
a strong effort will be made to reach
every commercial body, so that the
project may be fully comprehended
and action taken, if necessary, io have
the attention of the Legislature called
to it and. if possible, to pass a bill in
its interest.
American-Hawaiian Xot Decided on
Disturbing Portland Service.
In the opinion of C. D. Kennedy,
Portland agent for the American-Hawaiian
line, the steamers Isthmian.
Lyra. Nevadan and Nebraskan, which
are operating between Salina Crux
and Portland, will not be diverted to
Puget Sound to take care of the ship
ments of salmon from Alaska that are
destined for the Atlantic Coast and
Europe. Such a step is said to have
been decided on but Mr. Kennedy's In
formation from the head office is that
it is doubtful if the schedule will be
The steamer Nevadan is due here to
day and outbound business has been
accepted for her, the sailing date be
ing September 16, while on the Lyra,
due September 25 and probably sailing
September SO. more cargo has been
booked, so those vessels at least will
not go north. The new schedule for
all vessels plying from New York and
on the Pacific side as well, has not
been decided, though the card from
Kew York to San Francisco is in the
hands of officials of the operating de
partment officials. As the sugar sea
son has ended in the Hawaiian group
the big steamers turn back from Puget
Sound, instead of going to Honolulu,
they, should be able to carry the fish
Bark Coming From Antofogasta Gets
Freight of 42s 6d.
At 43s d the German bark Henri
ette. which sailed from Newcastle, N.
S. W.. August 8 for Antofogasta, was
chartered yesterday to load wheat for
Europe. She Is expected to be a Decem
ber ship.
There is no change reported in the
freight market, owners holding for 42s
Sd. and few asking higher, with
steamers at 50 shillings. The first
wheat to go aboard a foreign sailing
vessel this season will be started Into
the hold of the British bark Killarney
at the elevator dock today, she having
shifted yesterday from Linnton. The
British ship Galgate may also start, as
she finished discharging ballast at Lion
ton yesterday noon. The German bark
H. Hackfeld, which entered at the Cus-tom-House
yesterday in ballast from
Honolulu, will begin discharging at
Linnton today.
Custom-House Figures Do Xot Fall
Off With Poor Service.
Portland is holding its own in the
matter of imports and with a slight
gain for the last three months over the
period of 1911, the exact increase in
duties paid being J373.97. A statement
compiled at the Custom-House shows
that in 1911 the duties for June were
167.282.84. for July S69.i73.31 and for
August they were $65,702.63. For the
same period this year June is credited
with J57.476.20, a falling off. but in
July S79.333.S5 was paid in and the
August duties, were 165.832.70, a total
of S202.632.75 as against S202.25S.78 in
the 1911 quarter.
Importations continue to hold about

commercially than when the Portland

via San Francisco. If plans for a new

it is hoped that during June, July ami
August in 1913 there will be an en
couraging gain in duties paid.
Independent Steamers Cut Into
. Trade of Regular Carriers.
Discussion of the possibility of a
rate war on wheat shipments from
Portland to California ports being in
augurated by the San Francisco &
Portland Steamship Company, because
certain steam schooners are carrying
that cargo for 25 cents a ton less, has
brought out that consideration may be
given by the Harriman line officials to
the practicability of chartering steam
schooners to be used on the run ex
clusively for freight in opposition to
the independent vessels.
The same situation exists today as
was heralded early in the season in the
way of southbound shipments, and that
is the regular steamers are turning
away cargo every voyage. Besides no
special efforts are being made to ob
tain new business. There has been no
official confirmation of reports that
the Harriman family will build new
steamers for the service, though a ru
mor .has been afloat for months, so
with large carriers such as the Navajo
and Camino in the field, the latter car
rying more wheat south on one trip
than the Bear and Beaver could carry
Jointly, it looks as some move will be
made to provide tonnage.

Yours very truly, '
(Signed) Willis L Moore.
DO you ever "cuss" the Weather Man? You wouldn't if you knew that 4 times
out of 5 his predictions are right
And a group of the brainiest scientists in the world are working day and night to make
them right 5 times out of 5.
Shippers of merchandise would spend million a year to get the reformation which the
Weather Bureau furnishes for nothing. "
Mariners virtually confide their lives and property to the keeping of the Weather Bureau.
Farmers from Maine to California depend upon it for warning and advice.
In efficiency, progressiveness and usefulness, your Weather Bureau is head and shoulders
above the Weather Bureaus of other nations.

A Book That Shows Uncle Sam at Work
gives some facts concerning your Weather Bureau that are eye-openers.
Read about one' prediction which saved $15,000,000 worth of property and many
human lives. About another forecast, covering a smajl section, which saved $100,000
worth of proparty in a few hours. ' 'ttS&ftfa'--
About the thermometer which will measure the heat of a candle 5 miles away. About
the tiny pen suspended by a woman's hair, which registers the minutest atmospheric change.
The chapter on the Weather Bureau, like the entire book, is as entertaining as a novel,
yet is absolutely accurate in its facts. ' . -vv
Every branch of your Government is packed with interest for the man with the eye to
see it. Mr. Haskin has the eye, and what is better, the ability to write as he sees. You
haven't read a book in a year, not even barring "best sellers," that held your interest as
this book will. ' . '

fainting spells, dizziness, then
numb and cold feelings. Some
times my feet and limbs were
swollen. I was irregular and had
so much backache and headache,
was nervous, irritable and was
despondent Sometimes my ap

was not. My kidneys troubled
me at times and I could walk
only a short distance.

I was helped from the first. At
