The vessel Is now a.t Bayocean. on
Tillamook Bay. where she has been
Wintered since her flrst season, as she
was built by the Potter Realty Com

for the new service.

of the type on the Coast, and while
said by mariners to be an excellent sea
boat, proved expensive to operate, she
made a number of trips from Portland
to Bayocean and later plied between
Astoria and Tillamook Bay. but last

Two steel rails, 1 feet long, are used
as a drag, they being fastened by a
line to a derrick, ana when hauled over
the bottom indicate obstructions. On

TEXAS ONION CROP LARtiFl ONE
Acreage Is Increased nd Peaaon Is Earlier
The Texas Bermuda onion crop will be
gin moving about April 1. according to
a statement made by the Southern Texas
Truckgrowers' Association. The producing
acreage for 1913 exceeds that of last year,
when 4000 cars were shipped. Estimates
for this crop are not fully made up, but
experts are of the opinion that It may ap
proximate 5000 cars. Everything has been
favorable for development and maturity.
On account of market conditions for this
product, which were the worst ever known
during the past mild Winter, Texas grow
ers do not expect anything like fancy or
even very good prices for their earlier
shipments, but they hold the hope that with
the exhaustion or setting aside of old North
ern and Western stocks prices for their
product will improve with the progress of
On account of disturbances across the bor
der the usual movement of the Mexican
onion crop Into the United States by rail Is
