boat landing at the foot of Stark street
and an exhibition was given by both
the Campbell and the Williams. The

prctection Portland now has for her
waterfront, feoth boats threw streams
and maneuvered in exciting fashion.
Credit for the success .of the re
building of the. old flreboat Is given
the municipal repair shops. The entire
job cost $22,000, which was considerably
under the estimated cost when the
work was first Btarted.
W. J. Phillips In Charge.
Fred Ballln, a Portland engineer,
was the architect for the pilot house
and other parts of the boat. W. J.
Phillips, who has charge of the muni
cipal shops, was In direct charge of
the mechanical work. He was as
sisted by A. I. Sutherland in the
capacity of assistant. The repairs
consisted of the overhauling of the hull
and all the machinery and the rebuild
ing of most of the working parts.
As the boat stands now, she is
thoroughly modern. In the hold Is a
chemical engine, the first to be In
stalled on a flreboat. This is to be
used in fighting small blazes in vessels
or In mills. The boat has a water
tower which when extended throws the
nozzle 45 feet Into the air. There are
1Z hose outlets and two deck turrets.
Refreshments were served during the
test cruise. Ttiose who took the trip,
Including Mayor Albee and City Com
missioners Bigelow, Daly and Dieck,
went into all parts of the boat, in
specting the machinery, the pumps and
omer worKlng parts.

The port commission being advised

Captain H. A. Mathews, one of the
best-known bar pilots, and who was
in charge ot the steamer Rochelle,

River, and later was destroyed by fire,

terday by United States Inspectors

was tried in the morning and found
guilty of carelessness and negligence.
Aiannemen contend that the Bten
raises a new question, because of the
provision of section 4401. of the United
States revised statutes, applying to
American vessels under register. Can
tain Mathews signed on the Rochelle
as second mate for the voyage to Boat
Harbor and piloted her to sea, also
taking charge when she was returning.
He reported that Buoy No. 12. a lighted

accident largely to that fact.

SWITCHING COST OFF
Roads Agree to Move Cars to
Docks Without Charge.
SECOND ADVANTAGE GAINED
Removal of Assessment Likely to
Benefit Trade Materially, Espe
cially Where Margins Fig
ured Are Close.
Advantages are coming thick and
last for tlock owners and lessees in
the way of concessions by railroads.
the announcement of last week that
wharfage charges would be absorbed
on other than railroad-owned docks on
cargo for trans-shipment being fol
lowed yesterday by news that the Spo
kane, Portland & Seattle Ilailroad
would switch cars free originating at
any point on that system, as well as
on the United Railways and Oregon
Electric roads, or destined for such
points, to all West Side docks between
Albers dock No. 1 and the O.-W. R. &
N. "boneyard," which Includes the
Eastern & Western mill.
An amended tariff has been Issued
showing that the ruling went into ef
fect yesterday on interstate business
and becomes effective November 28 on
Interstate movements. In the past the
O.-VV. 11. & N. has switched cars to
those docks free, but if from a non-competitive
point, the charge to con
signees has been from $3 to $10 a car.
With that eliminated on all Spokane
Portland & Seattle business the docks
to benefit will be Albers Nos. 1, 2 and
3, Columbia dock No. 1, Mersey, the
Crown mill, coal bunkers. Municipal
Dock No. 1, the American Can Com
pany, Willamette Iron & Steel Com
pany and. the Eastern & Western.
W. C. Wilkes, assistant general
freight and passenger agent of the
Spokane, Portland & Seattle, said yes
terday that the arrangement extends the
terminals -of his company to the tracks
of the Northern Pacific Terminal Com
pany. The advantage is desirable par
ticularly on non-competitive business.
as in many cases the switching charge
has been virtually prohibitive where
close margain was being figured on.
In the Willamette Valley shipments
will be drawn, as well as much stuff
from water points, and will be dis
charged at the West Side docks and
forwarded by rail.
The change in tariff results from
fforts put forth by City Commissioner
Daly and the Commission of Public
Docks, as the switching charge was as
persistently fought as was the absorp
tion on wharfage. It is said that tne
rail lines willingly acquiesced when It
was made plain that all were of accord.
naturally neither being willing to
grant the privilege when competing
with the other for business.
It is said that in return for granting
the Spokane, . Portland & Seattle the
Ight- to switch over the tracks ol tne
Northern Pacific Terminal Company,
the latter is to shift one of Its tracks
onto right-of-way of the former west
f Front street, so there -win De only
one main line on .prom street. aa.
change that Is expected to facilitate
traffic materially and at the same time
ot prove an obstacle to switching to
any dock or Industry tracks.

Beaver Comes From California With
Winter Traveling List.
Weather changes were frequent on
the voyage of the flagship Beaver, of
tho San Francisco & Portland, coterie,
which terminated with her arrival at
Ainsworth dock last evening. Captain
Mason said northwest winds prevailed
off the California coast for a time and
then switched to southeast, while off
Oregon and until Yaquina was reached,
there was a general southerly breeze
that worked around to the southwest
and It appeared as If the weather was
The Beaver brought a winter pas
senger list, about 160 travelers, ana
freight was about average. Had it
not been for a breaking bar she would
have made an early arrival, but sh
came into the river at 9:15 and the
Bear sailed . southbound before noon.
The Beaver departs Saturday and the
Rose City arrives Sunday. While In
port this time the Rose City will be
given her annual inspection.

Foreign crop conditions are summartxed
by Broomhall as follows:
United Kingdom Weather is not desir

as possible and an Increased acreage Is as

France Farmers are sowing where it is
advantageous, exoept in the war sone, which
at present embraces about 1. 600.000 acres.
This operation, on the whole. Is very back
ward and much of the old crop Is still un
gathered. Much agricultural damage Is con
firmed. Supplies of native grain are light.
Germany Weather favors seeding opera
tions and this is being done with emphasis
from official command, but labor Is scarce
and advanced machinery Is Inadequate
owing to lack of horses. Supplies of native
grain have been liberal, but It la now becom-I
in scarce, and this Is emphasized by strict 1
economy and rapid rise In prices. Every ef

amounts to 64.5S6.000 bushels, against 66,-
088.000 bushels last week, thus showing
ecrease of 1,532,000 bushels. Last week

Change in Butter.
The street was well stocked with poultry
esterday, and while the old prices were
Quoted, the market was none too steady,
There was a good demand for dressed pork
at previous Quotations. . Veal was steady.
The egg market continues very firm, sales
being made at 37 M cents case count and
404SVi cents candled.
The butter market Is unchanged and the
undertone Is fairly steady.
Prints are hold-
lng at 34 H cents in box lots. Cheese Is
moving at former Quotations.
Sugar Miarket Is Unsettled.
The sugar price Quoted by local Jobbers
is still S6.30, as baaed on the latest refinery
Quotation. Some concessions are being made,
however, on speculative stock, which Is
being offered at a tower price. This has
tended to unsettle the market locally. The
Quantity of such speculative sugar Is said
to be limited, but while It last, the market
is not likely to fall on the refinery schedule.
Banana Market Is Firm.
The banana market is very firm and prices
are expected to advance . in the near future.
