the Juvenile Court for more than five
years, his delinquencies. Including the
forging and passing of a worthless

a series of meetings this week by mem
bers of the City Commission and mem
bers of the Municipal Civil Service
Commission at which general revision
of titles and salaries are to be con
sidered. Standardization of salaries In various
classes of work is the keynote of the
meetings and in working out the plan
it Is likely that many employes will
find their salaries reduced when the
affair is finally straightened out. Em
ployes doing the same kind of work
in different departments receive dif
ferent salaries at present. It is the
plan to make these salaries uniform
and the basis it is thought will be
determined by the smallest salary re
ceived by employes In his particular
line rather than the highest.
In the engineering department chain
men receive $85 .a month. It Is said. In
the Water Department chalnraen doing

Shippers Maintain Tariff or $31 to
Japan, $5 to Hongkong, $5.5fr to
Shanghai and Manila 50
Cents to $ 1 Too High.
Through the offer of Japanese tramp
steamers to load flour and wheat here
for Japan on a basis of $3 a ton, while
the rate fixed by steamship lines hold
ing membership in the Pacific Con
ference, to Japanese ports has been $4,
since August 16, millers have renewed
their contention that tariffs are higher
that market conditions warrant and
ask that a cut of 60 cents a ton be al
lowed. Both the Hamburg-American and
Royal Mall fleets, operating out of
Portland, have been approached with
reference to the situation and while
the petition must be forwarded to the
Pacific Coast headquarters of both lines
at Seattle. It is believed that more con
sideration will be given the proposal
now than when it was broached be
fore. Exporters argue that there should
not be a range of $1 a ton between the
tariff on regular lines and the ruling
rate for tramp steamers and. further
more, the Japanese buyers have taken
a stand against paying on a basis of
$4 a ton, intimating that business can
be done at SO cents less. Should It ap
pear that the liners can be' filled with
cargo despite the apparent inactivity of
the Oriental flour and wheat market.
Coast agents naturally are expected to
oppose any further decline, but at pres
ent it seems as if ships will go light
unless there is a marked change In the
demand for foodstuffs.
It was felt when the present rates
were made, being an advance of $1
instead of $1.50 a ton as expected over
the Summer charge, there would be a
spirited stir in buying, but unsettled
conditions across the Pacific and the
disinclination of buyers to place or
ders at what they regard as high fig
ures, combined to check the rush.
Ihe tariff to. Japan in $4. to Hong
Kong $5, to Shanghai and Manila $5.50.
Shippers have Intimated that besides
seeking a $3.50 rate to Japan they deem
the tariff to Hong Kong $1 higher than
It should be.

Stream Close to Normal Stage and
Continues Failing.
As the Willamette River has dropped
to a stage of 4.9 feet above zero and
at places on the Columbia River is re
ported under four feet. Captain H. T.
Groves, superintendent of dredging for
the Port of Portland, opines that ex
tremely low water will be experienced
unless Dame Nature Interferes in some
manner to check the run out.
Dredging is going ahead at the prin
cipal bars on the Columbia but he says
that should the river fall to zero a
large amount of extra digging will be
necessary to get rid of sediment that
piled in the cuts during the freshet.
The normal stage of water Is about
three feet above zero, though there are
times between high water periods
when the stream is at a lower height
for a short time. Regarding the plan
to return the dredge Columbia to Sand

to Fort Can by for the accommodation
of rock barges to be towed to the
