Our Third and Greatest
Royal Mail Steamer Glenroy
Omits Puget Sound.
FREIGHTS DROP IS RUMOR

Merionethshire Leaves Tomor
row With Fair Cargo. .
' Eliminating all calls after reaching
Vancouver, B. C, the new Royal Mail
liner Glenroy will proceed direct to
Portland and is to arrive here Mon
day. It was arranged for the vessel
to omit Puget Sound cities so she will
have time to load considerable lumber
here and sail on schedule March 3.
Ballour, Guthrie & Co. expect to
dispatch about 1,500.000 feet of lum
ber on the Glenroy for the Orient and
the may have more material from the
same firm. There will be considerable
cargo for the United Kingdom to be
loaded and some for the Orient, but
trade for the Far East is not as brisk
as millers and grainmen wish, so ship
ments are curtailed.
The Glenroy will bring freight from
Europe and Oriental harbors. She has
not much for British Columbia, so her
visit at Vancouver will be brief. She
Is a vessel of the type selected by
the Royal Mail for its "Glen" fleet
and another coming is the Glenlochy,
due to sail from Portland, June 17.
The Merionethshire, of the same
srvice, now working here, departs to
morrow and will have a fair cargo. She
Is to shift this morning from the
Crown mill to Alblna dock and
tonight will haul from Alblna to
Oceanic. The Cardiganshire, the
largest of the fleet yet started for the
coast, comes to Portland about the
middle of next month.
Freights to the United Kingdom are
said by exporters to have taken
another drop and parcel shipments are
being booked at 25 shillings. One
tramp steamer was reported offering
at 25 shillings, but was not taken.
ROCHELLE OFF FOR ALASKA
Steamer Will Look After Puget
Sound Trade During Season.
Operating under the flag of the W.
F. Swan Navigation Company and sup
plementing the service of the Pacific
Steamship Company from Portland to
Alaska, the steamer Rochelle will be
placed on the route from Seattle to
northern ports and sailed from here
for Puget Sound last night. W. F.
Swan was In the city yesterday ar
ranging for the departure of the ship.
She carried 40 tons of salt for Se
attle. When Mr. Swan accepted the su
perintendency of the Portland-Alaska
line it was understood that contracts
he retained would be taken care of
on a seperate vessel running from
Puget Sound, so the Rochelle was as
signed. At the same time there is
certain business to be handled from
here that would require the shipment
of coal to the north and that will be
routed on the Rochelle from Puget
Sound. On the return she carries ore,
Kypsum and other heavy freight.. The
Rochelle has operated between Port
land and California harbors since being
rebuilt about two years ago.

shipped from the New York supply
depot of the Bureau of Lighthouses,
passed Grand Island, Neb., Tuesday and
is expected to be delivered at Tongue
Point in ten days. Difficulty has been
encountered in maintining a lighted

A report from the tender Manzanita
Is that while her, crew was engaged in
grappling at the spot where the outside
gas and whistling buoy off the entrance
to the Columbia was established, but
which went adrift in December, a 10-
inch Manila hawser, 75 fathoms long,
was picked up. Officials of the depart
ment think the loss of the hawser from
some vessel with a tow may have bear
ing on the buoy going adrift.

SERVIAN TO BE DEPORTED
Allen Sneaks Across Border Only to
Probably because it was hard work
to drag his lengthy name along Nedyrko
Dabrasawlo, a Servian, set too slow a
pace for immigration officials yester
day and fell into the toils on an accu
sation of having entered Uncle Sam's
domain illegally, and after having been
denied admission in December at East
port, Idaho. At that time he lacked the
requisite head tax of $4, but possessed
a ticket to Portland.
Managing to elude the wary Govern
ment men on the border, he made "his
way here and had barely time in which
to get his bearings when he was ar
rested. Taken into custody at 1 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, he was given a
hearing at once before Inspector Bon
ham and escorted to the County Jail.
That prison holds several aliens as
guests of Uncle Sam, awaiting an offi
cial escort from the country.
BEAR OFFERED AS MASCOTT
Skipper Not Convinced That Bruin

As a mascot for the steamer Bear,
"bulldog" of the San Francisco & Port
land liners. Captain Nopander has been
offered a tame bear by a resident ot

cot is all right under some conditions.
Captain Nopander hesitates to accept
the responsibility of bruin's future, as
a change from his Southern Oregon
home to shipboard might bring woe to
him in the way of seasickness.
Should the bear be "signed on" the
question has come up that Captain
Mason might seek a beaver as mascot
for his ship and Captain Rankin Insist
on maintaining a rose garden on the
Rose City. The Bear sails tomorrow for
California a-nd in all probability she
will be cleared minus bruin among her
Xotice to Mariners.
