June. Opens Fairly Strong in
Charter Market, With No
Change in Freights.
PANAMA DELAY IS FACTOR
Among Iflxtures Reported Is That ol
Inveran by Heatley & , Co. for

June has opened fairly strong in
the charter market in the way of new
business, with no change in freights,
which appear to have attained a rea
sonably permanent range. Shipping men
Bay that the fact that the Panama
Canal was not ready immediately after
the Mexican trouble was started, as
liad been intimated, undoubtedly held
up some business, yet increases are
made every few days to the steam fleet
fixed for European cargoes on this
Coast that will undoubtedly use the
big waterway as a means of reaching
Among fixtures reported yesterday
was that of the British steamer In
veran, which Heatley & Co. took for
lumber to Australia. The rate is said
to have been 3s 4d, and the chances
are that cargo will be given the ves
sel on Puget Sound or at a British
Columbia port. The vessel sailed May
13 from Newcastle-on-Tyne for Punta
Meyer, "Wilson & Co. has taken a
steamer for October-November load
ing in Europe to discharge at Hon
olulu and either Portland or Puget
Sound. The vessel will be the British
tramp Lodaner or Lodorer, the selec
tion being at owner's option. The
Jodaner left Newcastle-on-Tyne May
11 for Algiers and the Lodorer put
out from New York May 10 for Bris
bane. The Hast Asiatic Steamship Company
has given out that the liner Natal,
which is listed for Portland and other
Pacific Coast harbors, loads at Copen
hagen June 15, Gothenburg June 18,
Chrlstiania June 19, Antwerp June 22
and London June 28.

I.UMBKIi MAY GO VIA CANAL
Robert Dollar Starts Working IMrst
Cargo at Vancouver.
San Francisco reports are that the
Dollar Steamship Company will use
several vessels in moving 25,000,000 feet
of lumber via the Panama Canal from
Vancouver. B. C. to Montreal, destined
for Toronto for use in harbor construc
tion. The steamer Robert Dollar is
now at Vancouver working the first
of her load,, which is to measure close
to 5,000,000 feet.
Should there be trouble with the
Culebra cut when the Dollar is loaded
the latter part of the month and the
prospects not encouraging for the Ca
nal not to be opened by the time she
reaches Balboa, arrangements will be
made to route her by the way of the
Straits of Magellan. On discharging
at Montreal the Dollar's cargo is to
be moved to Toronto on barges.
Coast lumbermen are talking about
the $1.20 toll for passing through the
Canal. It is understood from Wash
ington that deckloads of lumber will
be charged for on the same basis,
though no tariff covering deckloads is
in vogue on the Suez Canal. They con
tend that an adherence to that ruling
will prove a drawback to the lumber
trade of the Pacific slope, which is
depending on new business on the East

BEACH SEASOX IS OPENIXG

Federal Officers Conduct Reinspec

Masters of passenger vessels, in both
the ocean and river fleets, are kept
on the alert these days, as United In

nual inspection of steamers, the Fed
eral officers drop around for rein
spection without warning, often at
most inopportune times.
The steamer Bear was selected yes
terday and the inspectors held full
sway aboard for a short time. Re
cently they reinspected the river
steamer Ruth, while lying at Ains
worth dock, and, without a hint, im
mediately boarded the liner Rose City
and sounded a signal for fire drill.
During the visit last week of Captain
