JETTY WORK HEAVY
Wore Than 1,000,000 Tons of
Rock to Be Dumped.
FORT CAN BY DOCK LIKELY
Assistant Engineer, in Charge of
Project, Says Indications Point
to Biggest Season Known.
100,000 Tons Already Set.
' More than 1.000,000 tons of rock will
be dumped along the trestle of the
Ivorth Jetty at the mouth of th Colum
tia this year. Already 100.000 tons
have been placed. The construction of
another receiving dock at Fort Canby
Is prospective and if that is completed
In 1914 the amount of rock handled
win do increased.
"This should be the bijreest season
we ever had In placing rock and we
kave made an encouraging start, for
on the South Jetty work the first ma
terial was dumped each year about
pril 10, while we already have a large
Kiuuuni oi material distributed along
the North Jetty and will have more
than 100,000 tons in place by April 10
this year." said Gerald Bagnall, assist
ant engineer in charge of the project,
yesterday. "To compute the North
Jetty between 4,500,000 and 5,000,000
tons of rock will be required, as most
of the distance there will be deep
water. On the South Jetty approxi
mately 6.750,000 tons were used, but
only the last two miles of that trestle
.was in deep water.
"The daily average of rock received
at Kort Stevens for the South Jetty was
3700 tons, while we should have deliv
ered 4500 or 4600 tons at Fort Canby
Ifor the North Jetty as soon as the chan
nel around Sand Island is cut through.
The trestle has been built half a mile
seaward and while the pile-driving
crew has not been at work during the
recent rough weather, they should ex
perience few delays for the rest of
The breaking of a "gooseneck" on
the dredge Columbia temporarily has
delayed dredging around Sand Island
nut as the machine had cut to within
150 feet of the end of the channel,
efforts are being made to repair the
carnage temporarily so a shutdown of
about a week will be avoided.
BEAR IS BRIXGIXG OXIOXS
Sfine Cars of Oranges and Many
Passengers Are Likewise Due.
Because Portlanders are so strong
for onions that the supply in Front
street commission houses has been de
pleted, a call was made on California
stocks of imported onions and 1000
crates of them will arrive here today
on the steamer Bear. High prices pre
vailing may not be curtailed by the
shipment, but it will serve to appease
the appetite of those not wrestling
with the high cost of living problem.
Another food shipment on the liner is
nine cars of oranges and in all her
cargo will approximate 1700 tons.
Travelers coming on the ship number
The steamer Rose City sails at 9
o'clock this morning for the south, and
while not breaking the record for big
cargoes, she will have a fair passen
ger list. As the Summer schedule goes
into effect with the sailing of the ves
sel, inbound steamers will arrive the
day southbound liners depart, instead
of the following day, as is the case on
the Winter schedule.
Captain Morgan Says Alaska Rush
, Is On From Puget Sound. j
"Portlanders could not have selected
a. more opportune time for embarking
1n the Alaska steamship business, for
steamers leaving Puget Sound are be
ing given all they can carry and pas
senger accommodations are crowded,"
naid Captain B. W. Morgan, who ar
rived yesterday to assume command of
the steamer Quinault. which sails to
night. "If the steamers on the Port
land, run had more space for passen
gers it could easily be filled."
Captain Leignton accompanied Cap
tain Morgan and goes out on the Quin
ault as pilot. The latter was formerly
master of the steamer Humboldt and
latterly served as pilot on the steamer
Admiral Sampson. He is not a stran
ger here, as years ago he wa"s a quarter
master on the steamer City of Topeka,
which operated out of Portland for a
lengthy period. The Quinault was to
have gotten away last night, but was
detained as additional steerage berths
are being installed.

PORTLAND TO WIN AGAIN
U.4RKISOS LINE MAY ORDER A
EECILAR SCHEDULE HERE.
Comedian or Crows of Seville Likely to
Load Here Latter Part of the
Month or Early la May.
Portland is gradually coming into
her own in the way of demanding at
tention from European steamship lines
and as a result of meetings held
abroad, at which rates and future
service have been discussed, the Har
rison Direct line is said to be about
to order a regular schedule for this
harbor, the first ship on which either
will be the Comedian or Crown of Se
ville, loading the latter part of this
month or early in May.
There have been reports that this
city would be favored with the same
service accorded San Francisco and
Puget Sound, but it was not until yes
terday that it was decided another
steamer would be sent here. In con
nection with the recognition of Port
land it is understood there also will
be a change in rates, so importers here
will be placed on an equitable basis
with others on Puget Sound.
At present Portland labors under a
disadvantage in being compelled to
pay 2s 6d more a ton on European
cargo than Puget Sound cities, but
the introduction of competitive steam
ers in the trade and the certainty that
there will be more clamoring for pat
ronage when the canal is opened, is re
sponsible for the changed attitude. At
the same time there are houses- here
that cling to former methods of having
European consignments shipped by wa
ter to New York and routed by rail
overland, a system that is more ex
pensive than the all-water route. An
effort will be made to induce shippers
to divert cargo to the direct line that
will guarantee regular calls.
The British steamer Crown of To
ledo, of the Harrison line, which
reached here last week with a fair
cargo, finishes loading outward today
and is to sail about 3 o'clock, return
ing abroad by way of San Francisco
to complete her load.
It fell to the lot Of the nronellor
Sacajawea yesterday to do her share
toward the export trade of the port
when she loaded a shipment of old
copper at the Washington-street dock
that was discharged at Oceanic dock to
be cleared on the Harrison liner Crown
of Toledo for England.
Harbormaster Speier has assemhieii
material for the construction of a ma

River Packers' Association fleet, left
for Astoria yesterday, where new boat
davits will be placed and other work
done before she sails for Alaska.
Bringing a hardwood cariro from
Otaru, the Japanese steamer Shinkai

POOR FARM TO BE SOLD
SATISFACTION OF JUDGMENT IS OR
DERED BY COIRT.
Notes Glrfs for Purchase of Property
la 19IO Ncrrr Paid Mortgage of
County Prior Sewer .Liens.
Circuit Judge Bradshaw. of The
Dalles, yesterday filed a decree In
County Clerk Coffey's office foreloslna;
the old county poor (arm as a result
of the suit brought several months ago
by A. E. Clark, attorney, and. directing
the property to be sold to satisfy a
Judgment of $134,062.45 due the county
and 14600 attorney fees. Defendants
In the suit were B. M. Lombard. Caro
line Lombard. Elliott McAllister and
Alice D. McAllister and. the City of
Mr. Lombard contracted to purchase
the property In 1910, giving notes for
$119,530. secured by a mortgage on the
property. No part of the principal of
these notes has been paid, the court
held, and. only a small part of the Inter
est. The court held that the mortgage
of the county Is prior to any sewer
liens which might be held by the city
or any claims of any nature held by
"Attempt was made by Mr. Lombard
to have part of the property released
because of Interest payments which be
had made." said Attorney Clark yes
terday, "but auch a release would have
Impaired the county's security at least
$50,000. All of the county's claims were
"Some confusion seemingly has
arisen, due to misunderstanding re
garding attorney fees. The attorney
fees allowed are in addition to the full
amount of $134,062.45 due the county
and are not paid by the county, but by
the defendants. If the District Attor
ney had handled tbe case no attorney
fees w-ould have been allowed, as the
contract in the mortgage to pay attor
ney's fees is one of indemnity."
