. also be lumber and general cargo for
Far Eastern harbors. The vessel is
due today, having sailed from Tacoma
at 10:30 o clock Wednesday night.
One of the principal items on her
manifest to be discharged at Portland
is 2500 bales of gunnies from Calcutta,
From Kobe are 2630 packages of sun
dries, making a total of 300 tons. There
are 112 bags of glue aboard from
Antwerp. At London the vessel loaded

this Spring: and was damaged in
fire in March that destroyed Columbia

ANOTHER TRIP FOR PARAISO
Oliver J. Olson May Go on Portland.
Coos Bay-San Francisco Route.
Possibly one more trip will be com
pleted by the Swayne & Hart steamer
Paraiso on the Portland-coos bay-san
Francisco run, when she will be re
turned to the American-Hawaiian serv
ice, says Fred P. Baumgartner, Port
land agent for the Arrow Line, who
days that negotiations are under way
that insure a vessel being available to
succeed the Paraiso at once. One re
port is that the Oliver J. Olson will
be chartered. The Paraiso left the
river yesterday and' is due to depart
from Portland again July 1.
The return of the Paraiso to the
American-Hawaiian flag is not for a
lengthy period, as that company con-
. templates shifting its schedule with the
opening of the Panama Canal so that
the smaller liners, such as the Ne
blaskan and Nevadan and others of
the type, will proceed here after dis
charging San Francisco cargo and
probably returning from here. The
larger fleet will make California ports
and Puget Sound. The Paraiso is char-
' tered in that line simply as a transfer
vessel between San Francisco and

Decking Over Alaska Steamers
Proves Revenue Producer.
Captain Jansen, master of the Alaska
. steamer Thomas L. Wand, which sails
early this morning for Skagway and
way ports, avers that the temporary
deck built on the ship, which was fin
ished yesterday, has nearly doubled her
capacity for general cargo. In her
argo are 17,000 cases of salmon cans,
1000 cases of can tops, 700 boxes of
tinplate, 68,000 feet of lumber and 250
tons of merchandise and sundries, the
largest load she has carried. Inci
dentally the cost of decking her over
n-as less than one-tenth of the addi
tional revenue gained.
On the run north the Wand will make
3t calls and were it not for the fact
the steamer J. B. Stetson made 161
calls on her present voyage, she would
be here tomorrow after & round trip J
of 13 days. She lost time at Ketchi
kan on the southbond run and will
be here Sunday. While steamers op
erating to California are skirmishing
for business, the Alaska fleet has all
that can be handled and the passenger
trade Is most satisfactory. .
PLEIADES COMING IX JULY
Luckenbach Fleet to Take Second
Cargo of Salmon and Lumber.
One more cargo for the Luckenbach
fleet is being assembled on the river
and the present plan is to have the
steamer Pleiades here July 12 to load
for the Panama Canal zone and the
Atlantic side. There is a shipment of
salmon to move on the freighter from
Astoria, as well as lumber and gen
eral cargo from Portland.
The steamer Damara, of the same
flag, which loaded lumber and other
freight here, worked 10,008 cases of
salmon at Astoria Wednesday and went

BALLOON SHIPPED OX BEAR
California Liner to Have Full Cabin
On reaching the city yesterday from
Molalla, where it was landed Wednes
day evening following a trip from
Portland, the balloon Venice, which
has been operated in the city recently
as a captive balloon, was conveyed to
Ainsworth dock for shipment to Venice,
Port Los Angeles, on the steamer Bear,
which sails Sunday. Edward Ungef,
owner of the Venice, will accompany it.
First-class accommodations on the
Bear have been snapped up, and she
will have a full list. Extra rooms be
ing added on the bridgedeck for some
of her officers have not been finished,
so those occupied will not be avail
able for passengers until her next voy
age. The steamer shifts about the har
bor today collecting freight and takes
on the last at her-berth tomorrow.
