Coos Bay marine men have con cluded to devote less consideration to jetty matters on that waterway at present and work for the assembling of a battery of dredges with the hope of having a 25-foot channel from Smith's mill, above Marshfleld, to the sea, says Captain Macgenn, master of the -steamer Breakwater, which sailed for Coos Bay Wednesday. The bar dredge Colonel P. S. Michie, which Is under way at Seattle, is to be placed in commission next month and every effort will be made to have the dredge Oregon, which was sent to Grays Harbor, returned to Coos Bay to be operated on the channel inside, while a contract has also been let to a Puget Sound concern to do dredging.

The coming of tlm steamers will pro vide additional tonnape on this side for arly Fall loading: and by the time some of them report and discharge coal new whea will be about ready to move. The Hornelen. a Norwegian tramp recently fixed to load lumber for Australia, has arrived at Honolulu and will come here in ballast. She loaded coal at Tv -t-astle for the Hawaiian port. The schooner William Nottingham, which 1 remembered by many through having made a lengthy stay here after being nicked up in a waterlogged condition, has been fixed to load lumber again for Valparaiso. Her charterers are Hind. Rolph & Co. W. R, Grace & Co. have engaged the s hoonr Lottie Bennett for lumber to Valparaiso and she probably will work argo on Grays Harbor.

Re cently attention was directed to the fact that all passenger vessels operat ing between Portland and California porta could not obtain water, and most of them filled their tanks in the south for the round voyage. The Chamber of Commerce referred ; be matter to the Commission, and . or Captain Speter investigates some inaiM will b considered of remedying Uio situation. Virtually all of the docks have water connections, but mostly for rlre purposes. One Bcjpeme suggested is for the laying of direct pipes from mains to the outside of the Marine Notes. Bound for Antofogasta the schooner Luzon was cleared yesterday with 731, 323 feet of lumber valued at 59443. Light men were signed on and she was shifted through tho bridges from the Portland Lumber Company's dock to an anchorage below and probably will leave down today.

Residents of Portland have suffered no material losses as a consequence of the June freshet, save time and incon venience on the part of dock men in shifting from lower to upper docks and among business houses in getting goods from basements and working pumps to keep elevators clar, but on islands along the river the situation is as suming a grave aspect. Late reports yesterday from Sauvies Island, were that only a few ridges re main above water and. occupants are hastening to reach the mainland. As the water overflowesl on hay land the crop was out green, though inundated, and. raked to high ground, where cattle were also assembled with the hope that they would be able to escape the flood and! avert the neces sity of moving them. I i -hi Changes Noted. Advices to the headquarters of the 17th Lighthouse District yesterday were that the front light on what Is known as Slaughter's range could, not be main tained longer and until the freshet subsides a red light will be shown from Slaughter's dock.' Tho Washougal light was carried out by the water and will be discontinued until a normal stage Is reached, and the Gray Island light, on the Middle Columbia, has suffered likewise. A continuation of the rise will wipe out other beacons. If there is more snoy in the moun tain regions it will, no doubt, come down the Columbia River basin in the form of water soon, for E. A. BealB, district forecaster, said last night that tho temperatures in the Interior were going up slowly and there was every Indication of a warm spell approaching. Low land everywhere is gradually being submerged and in tome places ranchers and dairymen have been cut off from the river and are sending products here by rail. Numerous "mud" landings that are customarily made by river steam ers are obliterated these days. Slight Rlnc Comes. The official gauge here registered 23.3 feet above zero at 7 o'clock last night, having gained two-tenths of a foot since 8 o'clock in the morning and by today Mr. Heals looks for a stage of 23.6 feet. Though having altered his estimate slightly he thinks the river will be 24.3 feet above zero Monday morning. Cool weather in the mountains had an effect and yesterday's reports were that there was a fall of six inches at Lewisrton where the Snake River stood at IS feet. More basements in the business dis trict were flooded during tho day and it is a common sight to see pumps working on the streets, some being operated by small gasoline engines on the sidewalks and others by steam plants in the buildings. LAKE RTVER REPORTED RISIXG Mills at Ridegfield Closed and Docks Are Weighted. RIDGEF1ELD, Wash., June 5. (Spe cial.) Lake River is still rising. It is higher than it has been for 19 years. People are busy moving stock and household effects from farms on Sau vie's Island and Bachelor's Island to Ridgefield. Boats and scows haye been in great demand. The Lc wis River Navigation Com pany moved to the Beaver Shingle Mill Company's dock, but this can only be reached by boat now. A pile of washed gravel owned by the city has been sacked and is used for weighting down the dock and other buildings. All the mills are closed temporarily. Mr. Ernest Lupberger. a well-known conductor on the electric line, who lives at 609 Eighth avenue, Seattle, says: "I have lived in Seattle for over seven years and most of that time I have spent as conductor on the elec tric line here. During the past two years I have had considerable trouble with constipation, my stomach was in bad condition and my bowels very irre gular. Cathartics relieved, but did not regulate. I have heard so many good reports on Plant Juice I decided to try It and am well pleasod with the results. It has regulated my bowels, It als-a. acted on my stomach and kidneys. I am feeling much better in every way. With me Plant Juice was the right thing in the right place at the right time, and I am glad to recommend it to others," As a corrective of all disorders of the stomach, kidneys and liver. Plant Juice is the best to be had. It stimu lates the liver to normal action and eradicates all biliousness from the sys tem, corrects constipation. regulates the bowels and clears the blood of all poisons. Those who suffer from Indi gestion, bloating, pains across the back or in the joints, headaches, dizzy spells, spots before the eyes, too scanty or too highly colored urine, should lose no time, but try Plant Juice now. It will do all and even more than we claim for it. The Plant Juice man is at the Owl Drug Company's Store, Seventh and Washington: call and get a bottle from him today, and if it does not help you he will refund your money. burg. have taken apartments at the Annex.

Consumers' Representative in Serv ice or Portland for Five Tears Is Appointed Under New Law. To take the position of State Sealer of Weights and Measures, F. G. Buchtel. City Sealer of Weights and Measures, yesterday tendered his resignation to Mayor Rushlight to take effect June 16. Mr. Buchtel will at that time move to Salem and take up his new work under State Treasurer Kay. At the time of his resignation he w-ill have been in the city's service five years. The State Treasurer In the past has been the State Sealer of Weights and Measures, but no appropriation has ever been made to cover the cost of neces sary apparatus. There was no state law giving him the power to Investi gate weights and measures and there was no law to prevent fraud. The last Legislature enacted laws to cover these points. The state law, which became effective June 3, 1913, provides for the appoint ment by the State Treasurer of a Deputy State Sealer, who will have active charge of the office. It requires the appointment by County Courts of a county Sealer in each county, who will have the power to investigate trade conditions, test weights and measures, and, wherever violations of the law are found, it Is the duty of the County Sealer to Institute criminal proceedings. The State Sealer Is to have general supervision throughout the state over the inspection of weights and meas ures, and is to have authority to in vestigate all trade customs or prac tices which might have a tendency to ward dishonesty In the use of weights and measures. He also will have authority throughout the state to enter any place of business at- all reason able hours to make Inspections. The new law Is general in Its terms, and while not covering anything spe cifically, in reality it is so worded that it covers the sale of all commodities usually sold by weight or measure.
