Colusa Retains Registry and
Will Take Chances on Cap
ture by Germans.
Norwegian Vessel Cuzco Due Sep
tember 6 From North and Santa
Craz Will Bring Atlantic
Freight Same Day.
W. R. Grace & Co. determined not
.to alter the registry of the Britisn
steamer Colusa here, though it has
been said for the last few weeks that
she would be brought under the Stars
and Stripes before leaving the North
west for the West Coast of South
America, and the vessel sailed last
sight. It is understood that Captain
Lobez had instructions to take every
precaution en route to the Golden Gate
against capture by German cruisers.
As was done in the case of the Brit
ish steamer Fernley, which was dis
patched with a grain cargo for the
United Kingdom a week ago. the Co
lusa probably will steam well within
the three-mile limit.
So far as the Portland cargo of the
Colusa figures she would not be in
much danger of molestation, as she
loaded 2.500,000 feet of lumber that is
valued at $23,331, but from Puget Sound
she took considerable flour and other
commodities that might be regarded
more of a prize.
Americans Own Vessel.
The vessel is bound only for West
Coast territory and is in no wise in the
business of assisting any of the bel
ligerents, it is insisted by G. IE. Mc
Dowell. Portland agent, and only the
fact that she flies the British flag Is
gainst her in the present trouble,
though she is owned solely by Amer
icans. Lumber taken aboard here is con
signed to Caldera, Areso, Coquimbo,
Itollendo, Cruz Grande, Callao. Balboa,
Panama and Payte.
The Norwegian steamer Cuzco, in the
same service, is due here September
6 on her way south, after loading on
Puget Sound.
The New York liner Santa Cruz is to
be in Portland September 6 with cargo
Irom the Atlantic side approximating
2800 tons and a change In system will
go into effect with her arrival.
Cargo to Be Taken On.
The Santa Cruz will take on Port
land cargo for New York immediately
after discharging Inbound freight and
then go to Puget Sound. In the past
the arrangement has been for the ves
sel to discharge at Portland, proceed
to Puget Sound to finish and then re
turn here to take on outbound stuff.
The steamer Santa Catallna was re
ported arriving at Baltimore Thursday
on her way from Portland for New
York and Mr. McDowell said yesterday
thai cargo is being booked for the re
turn yoyage of the Santa Catalina
which is to sail for New Y'ork about
September 20. She is expected to
make the run through the canal to San
Francisco In 19 days and be here six
days later.
The Santa Cecilia, which sailed from
the river yesterday for New York by
way of San Francisco and Los Angeles,
leaves New Y'ork on the return October
30 and the Santa Cruz is to make her
wav back to the Eastern terminus in
time ut depart again October 25. There
after a vessel is to be started for the
Pacific Coast every 20 days with the
present Heet. and that schedule will be
Improved when other carriers are

Congress Expected to Act on Laws
Now In Conflict.
E. F. Sweet, Acting Secretary of the
Department of Commerce, has written
Collector of Customs Burke on the sub
ject of penalties against foreign-built
veessels as follows:
The new registry law, as you are aware,
enables foreign-built vessels to be registered
as vessels of the United States, snd accord
ingly removes the reason for heavy penal
ties prescribed for many years on vessels
owned by American citizens but not vessels
of the United States because they were not
Sullt In the United States, or were not of
fleered by American citizens.
Such statutes as the alien tonnage dues
and light money Imposed by sections 421U
and 422.". R. S.. the 10 percentum discrimi
nating duty, and the forfeiture of the ship.
Iter cargo, tackle, apparel and furniture pro
vided by section IV, J, subsections 1 and 2
f the tariff act of October 8, 1913, pre
scribed In the case of vessels owned by
American eltixens but not "Vessels of the
flitted States."
Congress, in due course, doubtless will re
peal the laws so far as they prescribe these
penalties on such "vessels not of the United
States." In the meantime. It Is suggested,
that, should a case arise, before taking steps
to collect such tonnage duties of light money
r to Institute proceedings for the impo
sition of other penalties, you communlcsie
with the Department, which, where neces
sary, will consult with the Treasury Depart
ment, and you will be Instructed. It Is prob

Two Steamers Leave Today With
Over 500 Bound for Fields.
Between 500 and 600 hoppickers are
to leave Taylor-street dock this morn
ing on the steamers Grahamona and
Oregona for Willamette Valley hop
districts. Captain A. B. Graham, of
the Yellow Stack line, which has car
ried pickers annually for many moons,
says he fully expects the last big
crowd will leave here Monday. Ap
proximately 300 pickers left yesterday
on the Grahamona and the steamers
have been thronged during the entire
"There Is no trouble being experi
enced in getting pickers so far as we
have been informed." said Captain
Graham. "It is a fine season as to
the condition of the Wop and ability to
secure help."
The Y'ellow Stack dock resembled a
big storage warehouse for household
poods yesterday, as every sort of camp
equipment, all sizes and shapes of bag
gage rolls and many kinds of per
sonal belongings were plied there to

to accompany the pickers.
JIaster of Harvard to Be Sent to
Bring Great Northern Here.
Some of the Coast skippers who hoped
they might be designated in the selec
tion of a navigator to proceed to Phila
delphia to bring out the giant Hill
coaster Great Northern, which is to
operate between Flavel and San Fran
cisco, are doomed to be disappointed,
for Captain Harry Stremmell, of the
fleet turbiner Harvard, operating be
tween the Golden Gate and Southern
California, has been assigned for the j
task. It .'s understood that the vesBel
is about ready to be placed in com
mission. The Northern Pacific, her sister ship,
Is being hurried, and when she is ready
it Is expected that another Pacific Coast
navigator will be assigned to command
her. Captain C. iJ. White has succeeded
Captain Stremmell on the Harvard. It
has been arranged that the Hill inter
ests will sell through tickets from the
Northwest to Southern California,
transferring passangers at San Fran
cisco to the Xale and Harvard.
Seattle Gets Argentine Corn.
SEATTLE, AugT 28. The British

More than 60 representatives of
waterfront interests and members of
commercial and municipal bodies
gathered at the office of Colonel Mc
Klnstry, Corps of Engineers, U. S. A.,
yesterday, when a hearing was held on
the application of J. B. Ziegler to
change harbor lines at Portland at
certain points.
Eight objections were filed and Mr.
Ziegler was the only speaker In sup
port of the matter.
Colonel McKinstry announced that he
would not forward a report of the
hearing, which will contain his recom
mendations, for a month. Meanwhile
any written statements might be filed
for or against the application, he said,
and he would include them In his re
Lengthy Argument Made.
Mr. Ziegler made a lengthy "argument
in behalf of his contention for shifting
the harbor lines so as to increase the
harbor area and to prevent upland
owners from acquiring rights to the
harbor line, some of which, he said,
had been obtained as a matter of spec
ulation with the hope that they might
be sold tc the Commission of Public
"If you can show that there is a
public necessity for the change, I will
make recommendations," Colonel Mc
Kinstry told Mr. Ziegler. The latter re
plied that the upper portion of the har
bor should be preserved at least, for
terminal purposes as far as the north
end of Ross Island, or even to the
south end, if deemed needed. He said
the natural width of the river had been
decreased from 800 feet to less than
600 feet at the site of the old steel
"You don't propose to save these peo
pie In spite of themselves?" queried
Colonel McKinstry, after objections
had been made.
J. H. Noyes Objects.
J. H. Noyes, in objection to a change
on behalf of the Globe Milling Com
pany, said that to alter the line on the
East Side would cut through the center
of the company s concrete elevator.
A. C. Spencer, of counsel for the
O.-W. R. & N., said a change on the
West Side would cut through the rail
road and steamship terminals at the
point of interchange.
J. R. Bowles, of the Northwest Steel
Company, said that to move the harbor
line would cut off Its improvements
to such an extent that it would have
to move the plant to a site on the Co
lumbia River.
Commissioners Would Decide.
S. M. Mears. president of the Port of
Portland Commission, took the stand
that, so far as the interests of the
state were concerned In a harbor line
change, the matter should be brought
properly before the Commission to de
termine whether it would be advan
tageous or was agitated by a few per
sons who had no Interest at stake.
John Kiernan, owner of Ross Island,
objected insofar as that property- might
be affected, and in reply to a question

waterfront rights In the past, said
there was a time when a man received
homestead here, providing he was
married, simply to facilitate immigra

Apparatus Presented by Bntterfield
Bros, to Be Used In Recneck
ing Test Weights or Track
Scale Testing Car.
One of the largest scientific scales on
the Pacific Coast has been added to the
laboratory equipment of the Railroad
Commission of Oregon, the Portland of
fice of which is in the Courthouse. The
scale is a valuable addition to the Com
mission's apparatus used for testing
standards of quality, purity, pressure,
voltage, etc., of gas, electric railroad
and water utilities.
The scale, which has been set up in
the laboratory, was an outright gift to
the Railroad Commission by Butterfield
Bros., of Portland. The scale was used
by the gold smelter at Linnton years
ago. It is of solid bronze on a marble
base, an even balance type, with center
and end Divots with agate bearings. It
is sensitive to one two-hundredth of
milligram and has capacity of 1000
ounces Troy.
Railroad Scales Checked.
It can be used for rechecking the
test weights of the railroad scale test
ing car. In 1911 the Legislature passed
a law placing the railroad track scales
under the jurisdiction of the Railroad
Commission, and since then all such
scales are regularly Inspected and
caused to be maintained in an accurate
George H. Kaiser, who In point of
service is Oregon's oldest scale expert
was appointed to the position of State
Railroad Track Scale Inspector. This
step of clearing away all doubt in the
minds of the farmers and merchants
as to the weights of shipments has
been productive of splendid results In
the lack of complaints. The railroads
can now call attention to the state test
er's scales on which is noted the date
of last inspection, and the shipper
knows a systematic Inspection will
maintain proper attention on the part
of the weighers.
Each Section Can Be Tested.
The test car is 22 feet over all, with
19-foot wneel base, when traveling.
During the testing of the scales, how
ever, a device elevates the outer wheels
of the car and an eight-foot wheel test
er to check the accuracy of each scale
section separately. Track scales have
from four to seven sections, depending
on their length. The average is a 50-
foot scale with five sections.
The test car is constructed entirely
of steel to preclude any fluctuations
due to temperature or weather. It
weighs 47,000 pounds and contains 260
weights weighing 50 pounds each, mak
ing a total weight of 60,000 pounds. To
recheck these 50-pound test weights is
the purpose of the new scale. The
closest possible check on the car is
maintained. Even the wear on the shoe
brakes is accounted for.
Gsod Things in Markets
Rose City Carries Flour for Central
and South America.
As a second gang of longshoremen

Steamers of the "Big Three" fleet have
handled small lots for Central and
South America that is transferred at
San Francisco to Pacific Mail vessels,
and a shipment of 400 tons goes on
the steamer Rose City, sailing tomor
row. The liner has a full cargo, and
considerable freight offered for imme
diate shipment has been declined owing
to lack of space. For the past few
trips the liners have had all they could
carry south-bound, and with the move
ment of wheat throughout the Fall to
California they will be kept busy.
HE crest of the peach wave is
here. The supplies are from North
Yakima. The Dalles and the Willam
ette Valley. The fruit is plentiful

been In the past 11 years. Housekeep

can peaches, pears and pineapples for
Winter use, as the low price of fruit
will more than offset the rise in
Concord grapes, the first of Ore
gon s crop, are on hand, looking fresh

each, or two for 35 cents. Californlan
stock can be had at 5 cents each.
