The most Important feature of the
journey will be the examination of

by river steamers, but which may be
improved and the main channel estab

Engineers, U. S. A., having ordered the
examination In accordance with a pro
vision of the last rivers and harbors
bill. The main sblp channel is now on
the opposite side of the Columbia, the
two being divided by Puget Island, and
if the Cathiamet road Is decided on it
will mean a saving in time for deep
water vessels bound to and from Port
land. Skamokawa Creek la another point
to be visited, as the act provides for
a preliminary examination at the
mouth with a view to Improving it for
the benefit of river steamers, which
tow log rafts from there.
A third project started deals with
Young's Bay, below Astoria, but the
details of what is desired there will
not be worked out until the engineers
discuss the situation with commercial
Interests at Astoria. That location has
been talked of as worthy of improve
ment for the accommodation of future
shipping and it is assumed that it will
be a general dredging scheme on the
Government's part. At present the land
owners are centering their efforts on
preliminaries. Young's Bay has been
used at times for vessels laying up
while awaiting charters and there Is
said to be fair depth in the channel.
Recently, so the engineers have been

STEAMER CONTRACT OT LET
Kern Says Xew Tug Has Xot Been
Given Out Yet.
Dan Kern, of the Columbia Contract
Company, denies a report from Astoria
that Wilson Bros, have been awarded
a contract for the construction of ' a
new steamer" with a length of 120 feet,
to have 700-horsepower. He says that
while machinery is on hand for the
vessel It has not been decided when she
will be built.
Some Portland firms have tendered
figures on the work, and It may cost
about $20,000. It Is probable the vessel
will be built largely after the plan of
the tug Samson, and will be used for
towing rock barges to the north Jetty
at the mouth of the Columbia, which
will be under way next season. Plans
and specifications have been passed to
different yards here, and it is said that
nearly all have filed bids.

On the arrival of the tug Seon in the harbor a few days ago from Newberg, Captain Speier, head of the
harbor patrol, said all sorts of commendable things about the' skipper of the tug because he proceeded
through the upper bridges under a slow bell, remarking that "there was one man from another city who
wished to obey the law." The reason for the Seon's lack of speed was the fact her shaft was bent and
stern bearing damaged through having struck a snag In the upper river. She vas repaired at Supple's yard,
and returned yesterday to Newberg.

Ben Semlyer and G. Lambe, managers
of- the same, were placed on triaj for
setting up a lottery. That the $35 suit
Is not really worth that sum of money
was confessed by one of the attorneys
for the defense, who confided to the
court that In these days of strenuous
competition merchants had to work
every scheme to get business.
The two defendants, with five subor
dinate's, were arrested Saturday after
complaints had begun pouring into po
lice headquarters from persons who had
embarked in the scheme. Only the two
heads of the concern were placed on
trial, the others being dismissed by the
prosecution and used as witnesses.
"Prominent"' People Picked.
The admitted facts were that the
agents of the company go through the
city distributing numbered coupon tick
ets, free of charge. Later another agent
visits the house where the ticket has
been left, and notifies the woman that
she has been selected as one eligible to
the benefits of the project. By paying
$1 a week for 19 weeks, she Is assured
of a $35 suit, and in addition she stands
a chance of receiving the suit earlier
and for a less price.
The defendants explained that they
selected each week one of the members
of the club to receive a suit without
further payments. "We make our own
selection, not by chance," they said.
