Plans carlus Completion.
At a meeting of the Commission
convened yesterday afternoon G. B.
llegardt. chief engineer, reported that
plans for the West' Side dock, provid
ing for heavy mill construction, were
about 80 per cent completed and that
they would be ready so that bids for
building could be advertised for the
latter part of the month. Plans for
the East Side dock, to be located at the
foot of East Stark street, are to be in
shape for advertising August t. While
the Commission will get control of the
West Side site July 1. the plant and
material of the Northwest Steel Com
pany may not be moved from there as
soon as expected. The Commission has
offered the company J35.000 as dam
ages in being compelled to move about
two years In advance of the termina
tion of its lease with the Star Sand
Company. The steel Interests placed
the estimate of their damages at J77.
345. The Commission has proceeded with
tho leasing of more space In the ter
minal block from the Spokane. Portland
Sr Seattle Railroad on which to accom
modate material of the steel corpora
tion, with the understanding that the
latter vacate a part of its premises by
luly 1 and the remainder by January 1.
On the other hand. It has been sug
gested that a temporary dock be built
at an estimated cost of $1000 for the
convenience of the steel company so it
can care for its material for a time, A
meeting will be held Monday to con
sider that further.
Klrr Boat Bertk Considered.
John Burgard reported that he had
conferred with Mayor Rushlight con
i erning a berth for the new flreboat
David Campbell, and that the latter had
received a proposition from tho O.-W.
1;. & N. to sell a strip of land north of
Montgomery dock No. 2, on the East
Side, having a frontage of 60 feet and
depth of 280 feet, for J6000.
It was made known that as soon as
the freshet subsides the L. A. Hicks
Company will commence on the Stark
street pier and motorboat landing. Jo
seph Supple has been given a contract
to build three pontoons.
In connection with steps that may
have to be taken In the future to ob
tain outside property for dock purposes.
City Attorney Grant filed an opinion
in which he stated that the present
charter did not give the Commission
of Public Docks authority to purchase
land beyond the corporate limits. City
Attorney Grant also said that the Coun
cil had the power to compel lines to
use one or two tracks on North Front
street so as to confine their operations.
The Water Board informed the Com
mission that the rates for water on
public docks would be the same as on
private wharves. For that reason the
Commission may adopt electricity for

ships could then take as much water

tne dock owner.
Coos Bay Interest;, Make Jetty Work
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
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.
Captain Macgenn says that the inside
channel project offers few difficulties

The Chamber of Commerce referred

. 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

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
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.
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,
"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.

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
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.

SALEM. Or., June 5. (Special.) Dr.
R E. L. Stelner, superintendent of the
Insane asylum, received a telegram
from the Chief of Police of Seattle yes
terday giving the information that
Lawrence Holland, who escaped from
the insane asylum here about a week
ago. was living near that city with his
mother. The board of control decided
to ask the Washington authorities to
return the man to Oregon.
She is wisdom itself who knows of or
learns of that famous remedy, Mother's
x nend. It is an ex
ternal application
for the abdominal
muscles and breasts.
It has a wonderful in
fluence, allays alt
fear, banishes a 1 1
pain, is a grateful en
couragement t o the
expectant mother, and
permits her to e a
through the period happy in mind, des
tined to anticipate woman's greatest hap
piness as natnre intended she should.
The action of Mother's Friend makes tha
muscles pliant and responsive to expansion.
Thus all strain and tension upon the nerves
and ligaments is avoided, and, in place of s
period of discomfort and consequent dread
it is a season of calm repose and joyful ex
pectation. There is no nausea, no morning sickness,
no nervous twitching, none of that constant
strain known to so many women.
This splendid remedy can be had of any
druggist at $1.00 a bottle. Write to Brad
