the Beaver, flaxship of the San Fran

hibit a ymile when the liner barked
into the stream from Ainsworth dock
yesterday and "lined ud" for the Broad
way bridge on her way to California.
It was remarked by some, whose busi

with the sailing of every vessel, that It
was the Jolllest aggregation of passen

The holiday aspect was everywhere,

trees and Oregon grape.
Theatrical Troupe Ka Iloote.
. In the cabin were 151 passengers and
among the number are members of a
theatrical troupe who promised to en
liven things en route with & few of the
stunts that draw for them salaries
ashore. In fact, when the Beaver was
backing from her berth, there was a
selection by male voices that carried
across the water In true harmony.
Several well-known Fortlanders were
registered on the books of Kent W.

Incidentally the Beaver carried the
record cargo for San Pedro that lias
been loaded here, it being reported as
1900 tons, while she lias 600 tons for
San Francisco. A3 she Is to make a
short stay at the Bay City she was
given a smaller consignment for there.

Her next arrival will be December

a dailv round trip between there and

FRENCH BARK REXE ARRIVES

The French bark Rene arrived late last
night, 134 days from Dunkirk. In bal
last, and wlfl load grain. Captain
Itioual reports an uneventful trip, al
though he encountered considerable bad
weather In the Atlantic. He saw no
Icebergs off the Horn and was but 12
days making the run from Staten Island
to '.ft south.
As the Rene was being towed in by
the tug Wallula. the latter'a towing
machinery broke while the bark was on
the bar. The Rene had all her upper
and litwer topsails set, so came along
unassisted, until the tug was aoio to
make the hawser fast to the bltts and
nroceed with her tow. The Rene sailed
from here about ten months ago for
Qtieenstown and would have returned
last November, excepting that she was
delayed six weeks in Dunkirk on ac
count of a sailors" strike.

when M. IT. ITouser chartered the Brit

cause of slow passage, due 'largely to
having been in Icebergs off the Horn
for 45 days, lost her charter, the Port

Besides the Metropolis Mr. Hauser
made another recent addition to his
fleet, having engaged the British
steamer Strathlorne last week to load
when here for the United Kingdom,
with the usual options as to other ports
of the European Continent, and her rate
was 42 shillings 6 pence. There Is lit
tle prospect that more than one or two
more carriers will be listed for grain, as
exporters estimate that tonnage on the
way that Is under charter will be suffi
cient for their requirements.

The contractors sent In their bill of ex
tras. Then the people representing the
club commenced to "dig up" frivolous
complaints that contract was not com
plete, that club was entitled to dam
ages, and the architects refused to
give the contractors their final certifi
cate which had been promised and
which the contractors were entitled to
The people representing the club
commenced to want to pay their honest
bills, incurred in an informal oral
way. in accordance with the written
orders they had given, when the most
of the work had been ordered done by
oral orders. The people representing
the club would not pay the contractors
the balance due.
The contract provided for arbitration
to arrive at the amount of compensa
tion due the contractor and damages
due owner. The contractors made writ
ten request for club to appoint Its
arbitrator and offered to appoint an
arbitrator, all as provided In the con
tract. The people representing the club
would not appoint an arbitrator, nor
would they pay the sub-contractors who
had filed liens and whose bills are un
disputed by the contractors. Then
architects made long, indefinite com
plaints about work which had been
completed and accepted for months and
which the club had been using for
weeks, to try and make defense for
not paying contractors. The contrac
tors not being able to even get the club
to pay the balance due the sub-contractors
and material men. or to get
the club to appoint an arbitrator, were
compelled to bring suit in the courts.
The suit has been on trial for a num
ber of days, the attorneys representing
the club making every technical de
fense as to whether work was ordered
In writing or not. did the contractors
make formal written protest to archi
tect before doing extra work ordered
to be done. etc.. etc
The contractors are very anxious that
court be held in the new clubhouse, so
that the work done and material fur
nished will be before the court. It
speaks for itself. The work and ma
terials which Mclnnis & Reed furnished
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
and have charged it $168,000 cannot be
paid for with that sum of money, and
no one will duplicate it for that sum of
The builders did not get Into a dis
agreement among themselves. The peo
ple representing the Multnomah Ama
teur Athletic Club got into the contrac
tors a good many thousand dollars, and
the contractors are trying to get Just
a portion of what is owing to them.
The club management preferred to
pay their debt to the contractors ii
der the formal proceedings in court
rather than under the Informal pro
ceedings of arbitration provided for in
One of the unjust provisions of our
law is that a contractor must abide by
the contract and arbitrate with the
owner or he cannot maintain a suit for
his money: but the owner can refuse to
be bound by the provision of the con
tract as to arbitration and the owner
is not Injuriously affected by this breach
of contract in the lawsuit.
