ORIENT BUYING TIES
Northwest Millmen Asked to
Tender 9,C00,C00 Feet.
ENGLISH BUYING REPORTED
With End of War Extensive Orders
for I umber Are Expected, bat
Effort Will Be Made for
Preference in Canal.
Batlroad ttes aggregating 9.000,000
feet are wanted In the Orient from the
Pacific Coast and millmen of the North
west are interested in bids to be opened
for them December 2, as virtually three
cargoes will be sent across the Pacific
to fill the order, which may be in
creased. Ordinarily the prospective tie
contract would not be so alluring, but
with the Far Eastern lumber market
almost at a standstill since the incep
tion of the hostilities in Europe, not
only is the business desirable, but is
encouraging in foretelling that avenues
may be opened also for merchantable
tuff.
Incidentally, so it is reported to Port
land millmen, orders have been placed
on the Gulf for 600,000 feet of ties for
England and there has been "nibbling"
from there for Pacific Coast ttes. Re
habilitation of Belgian and French ter
ritory after the war is expected to cre
ate an unprecedented call for North
west timber and invasion of England
or Germany would only enlarge the
market possibilities of American milla
Assuming that dimension timber and
lengths cannot be furnished along the
liaet Coast of the United States for re
construction of bridges and large struc
tures, the outlook is for this region
to benefit more than any other in the
new trade.
Millmen are wondering if experiences
of the Federal Administration in the
operation of the Panama Canal from
the standpoint of American develop
ment will have any Influence toward
repealing the clause providing for tolls
on American ships by the next Con
gress, because they assert one big or
der has demonstrated that in the lum
ber trade the Canal is more beneficial
to foreign bottoms than those flying
the flag of the United States. This
contract was entered into by the Dol
lar Steamship Company, of San Fran
cisco, operating certain steamers un
der the British emblem, to move lumber
from British Columbia to Philadelphia
and New York.
It is contend 3d that lower wages paid
on those shops, as compared with
American carriers, not only made it
possible for foreign vessels to set the
business, but for the same reason Brit
ish Columbia mills were given the or
ders in preference to American plants.
The British steamer M. S. Dollar left
British Columbia November 20 with a
cargo for New York and Philadelphia
and she was preceded by the British
steamer Robert Dollar, which just fin
ished discharging 2,500,000 feet on the
Atlantic side and a third cargo is to
go. It Is contended here that the ac
tual price of the lumber was above
what it could have been obtained for
on the Pacific Coast of the United
States, but the price margin wu offset
by cheaper transportation charges.
WARX1XG IS GIVKX MARINERS
Changes In. Canadian Navigation
Aids Dae to War Announced.
Officials of the Custom-House have

office of A. Johnston, Deputy Minister
of the Department of Marine and Fish

The masters of all vessels navigating in
Canadian waters are requested to report the
movements of any suspicious craft which
they may meet to the customs officer of
the first port at which they touch, for
transmission to the captain in chart,- of
the drydock at Halifax. In the case of the
maritime provinces, and to the superintend
ent of the dockyard at Esquimau in the case
of the Pacific coast, it Is not desirable
that any hearsay information should be
jclven. but it Is very Important that all
derijilte Information secured by masters
themselves be promptly forwarded.
Notice is hereby siven that the western
part of BrouRhton Strait 1 closed to navi
gation. All vessels whether northbound or
southbound proceeding from Johnstone
strait to Queen Charlotto Bound or vice

(Train these days wonder at the
thoughtfulness of csrtaln dock-workers
who sweep wagon beds clean of
cereals when loads are removed. It Is
not through the desire , of the dock
fraternity to see tidy trucks, but their
frugality in gathering poultry feed for
the home flocks.
There is little waste on docks of that
character that is lost for that reason.
On the big grain docks, when sacks
break and grain is spilled, it is always
cleaned and resacked. the dock floors
being so constructed as to permit of
the saving. Where river steamers
berth, there is such a variety of
freight handled that a small leakage
of grain goes with sweepings unless
segregated by the dock force.

MOTHER OF TINY ACTRESS
ALARMED OVER HEADLINE
Irfonie Dana, Star of "The Poor Little Each. Girl," at Heflig, Langhs When
Paper Links Name of Play and Bigamy.
BT LEOXE CASS BAER.
DIRE consternation raged rampant
in the Flag-rath apartment at the
Seward hotel yesterday, where
Mother Flugrath and ; her wee pretty
little girl, Leonie (Dana) Flugrath,
were pondering over a headline one of
the screaming scare sort in a San
Francisco paper.-
"What will father say?" wondered
Leonie, and "My, I hope none of the
neighbors ever see this," murmured
Leonle's young mother.
"The scareline read, "Is the Mother
of the Poor Little Rich Girl a Biga
mist?" Since everyone lias come to as
sociate Leonie Dana as the poor little
rich girl that headline did sound dread
fully personal somehow to mother.
-"You know how the world feels to
ward stage folk," she said, "So curious
about the Inside of our lives, whether
we are as old or as young ad we look,
whether our . teeth or morals are false,
and scandal is particularly relished.
And this headline sounds as if it refers
to me. Of course. It's amusing to us
but you have to read through a whole
column to find out that it means
Eleanor Gates, who was Mrs. Richard
Tuily and lately became Mrs. Moore."
Child Sees Joke in Line.
Mother Flugrath smiled ruefully, but
Leonie thought it was a great Joke on
someone. Then she listened carefully
while her mother explained what big
amy is and made clear to her how a
flaw in a divorce decree could make the
Tully-Gates-Moore episode a subject
for discussion under the California
laws. Leonie is just like all happy,
healthy, normal children in her un
bounded search for Information.
Remember in the play how she has
everyone racking their heads to spell
"absquatulate," and heaven only knows
if that's the right way. Well, Leonie
lives up to it every minute. She car
ries a little library of thumbed books,
and a dictionary, and she studies
French with one of the company and
talks German with mother. She doesn't
give a tup'penny about dolls" because
they're not alive," but she loves real
babies and mothers her heart out on
a white rabbit she carries with her.
"All actresses have dead rabbits' feet
for luck," says Leonie, "but I like mine
alive."
His name is Alphonse and he has
the whitest back and the dirtiest feet
I ever saw. Leonie explains it by say
ing that she gives him a nice bath
regularly, but that he insists on run
ning around to get dry, and gets his
feet all black again. AlphonBe is ec
centric and eats caviar and sweet
pickles, and a lot of junk that he seems
to thrive on. Also he is fond of skirt
hems, and had managed to make a
comfortable meal off my best one be

FAMILY HEN ESCAPES DEATH
Chicken That Was Slated for Table
Stalks Proudly Today.
For a year and a half Captain Works,
chief aide to "Captain" Budd, directing
the O.-W. R. & N. fresh-water lines,
has reared a hen in his backyard. For
the same period the hen has rendered
no greater service than to devour her
share of poultry food. Contributing to
the family larder In the way of eggs
seems to have been farthest from - her
Intentions. Therefore the feathered one
was selected as the Thanksgiving bird.
Wednesday was set as the date for
execution.. Before starting for the
waterfront Captain' Works, essaying
the role of. the beheader, headed for
the poultry yard, but on nearlng the
hennery rang for full upeed astern on
hearing a clamorous cackle. On swing
ing alongside he observed that the
doomed chicken had redeemed herself
by laying the first egg. one that is
said to offset all others in size, weight
and appearance. Thereupon an order
was made immediately for her parole,
with prospects of a complete pardon.
And for that reason turkey graced the
table yesterday and a tradesman was
the gainer.

on his first message, . which he will
submit to the Legislature immediately
after it convenes. He proposes to
make his message short. It probably
will contain a plea for economy in
all affairs and for special attention
to remedial legislation.
It is believed that Dr. Withycombe
will appoint his private secretary
either while in Portland today or im
mediately upon his return to his home
at Corvallis. He reports that he Is
handicapped In his present efforts
through the lack of a secretary s as
sistance and indicates that he will
make the appointment effective about
December 1.
Although the new Governor has re
ceived more than a score of applica
tions for the position, it is said that
he is giving serious consideration to
only two of the applicants.
It is probable that other appoint
ments will be held up until after the
Legislature adjourns if the next Gov
ernor adheres to his original policy.
Comr-teay by Mr. Weit Indicated.
Governor West has said that he will
permit Dr. Withycombe to indicate his
own choice in filling vacancies before
the present Governor leaves office. A
few such positions are to be filled.
Principal among them are the office
of state printer, a place on the In
dustrial Accident Commission, the su
perlntendency of the Boys' Industrial
Home and several places of minor im
portance. C. E. Babcock. whose term as a mem
ber of the Industrial Accident Commis
sion expires January 1, Is a Bepub
lican and Is understood to be desirous
of reappointment. It Is said that at
the time Governor West appointed him
It was with the promise of continuing
him m office, as he drew tha short
term. It is reported, however, that
the Governor now seeks to replace him.
but the Governor is expected to allow
Dr. Withycombe to make this appoint
ment if be allows him to make tho
others.
Inasmuch as the next Legislature
Droposes to abolish a good many boards
and commissions ana prooabiy do away
with several high-salaried Jobs, Dr.
Withycombe considers it useless to fill
those places only to have them go
out of existence automatically soon
after he takes office.
Applicants .Are Instates.
He has advised all aspirants, there
fore, to wait until after he takes of
fice, or until after the Legislature ad
journs before pressing their applica
tions.
In spite of this position, however.
the Governor-elect has been besieged
from every . side hy an eager horde of
office-seekers. Every place within the
gift of the executive has been spoken
for. A large number of places are
not filled by the Governog himself, but
by the State Board of Control, consist
ing of the Governor, the State Treas
urer and the becretary of State.
Under the present administration
the Board of Control has been dom
inated by Governor West and Ben W.
Olcott, Secretary of State. Olcott is a
Republican, but a close friend and rel
ative of the Governor, who first ap
pointed him to office to fill the unex
pired term or tne late jj-rank w. Ben-
eon. Two years ago Olcott waa electod
to succeed himself. Thus there is a
strong bond of sympathy between the
present Governor and the Secretary of
State. Thomas B. Kay, State Treas
urer, has been a minority member of
the Board of Control, but under the
new administration it is expected that,
tV.l i l T,V? ,aest and Largest Coffee (

Governor Withycombe and Treasurer
Kay will work together and consult
on appointments.
Dr. Withycombe expects to pass the
entire day in Portland and may remain
until tomorrow.
