In handling cargo from the Atlantic
Coast to Europe, are the reasons why
the Emery interests have withdrawn
the service of the Boston-Pacific fleet
made up of the steamers Atlantic and
Pacific and the chartered carrier Coro
lal. The Atlantic, first of the fleet,
discharged at Portland and San Fran
cisco and the Pacific was scheduled for
San Francisco and Puget Sound, while
the Corozal loaded in British Columbia
and on the Lower Columbia, which is
the total service that has been given
so far. The Pacific was to have left
Boston again January 2a. but has been
withdrawn, and the Atlantic leaves San
Francisco on her last voyage Febru
Statter & Co. acted as Portland
agents for the line, and Hind. Rolph &
Co. have been Pacific "T" oast agents.
The original plan was for a 28-day
service, using the Atlantic and Pacific
and two chartered vessels, such as the
Coroxal. but it is reported that the
Atlantic and Tacific are privately
owned, being operated under the ban
ner of the Boston-Kacltic fleet, and
that their owners concluded there wns
more profit in the trans-Atlantic trade
than plying on the intracoast route.

SEATTLE. Wash., Jan. 11 (Special.)
Punishment for misconduct at sea
was meted out in unusual fashion
aboard the American barkentine Puako
today, when Captain A. C. Pedersen
compelled 13 members of the crew to
stand on their heads before receiving
their pay. The Puako is at Winslow
after a trying voyage of 85 days from
Newcastle. Australia, via the Hawaiian
Island port of Mahukona,
No complaint of what had occurred
at sea was made by Captain Pedersen
upon the arrival of the big windjammer
on the sound, but today he was all out
of sorts when it came time to discharge
the men who had manned the vessel
from the Antipodes to Puge Sound.
"Stand on your head," commanded
Captain Pedersen as Vitho Svaninen
entered the ship's cabin for his pay.
Svaninen. whose appearance is far from
that of an athlete, at nrst refused to
"Not a cent do you get until you
stand on your head." roared Captain
Pedersen. Then Svaninen lowered his
head and shoulders to the floor and
with considerable difficulty, elevated his
heavy boots, growling a protest.
The Deputy United States Shipping
Commissioner present entered a protest.
but the remainder of the ships com

under orders from the captain, com

They Give Perfect Traction
Skidding is the greatest danger that besets the motorist. It comes without warn
ing, turns pleasure into peril and takes enormous toll in human lives and wrecked cars.
Second only in importance to motorists' on the Pacific Coast, where steep grades
are so much in evidence, is the matter of traction.
The very best brakes cannot prevent skidding; there must be even and secure traction
action. Rubber alone is not a skid prevention Rubber slips never grips; it slides
on wet pavements and roads like a cake of soap rubbed on the moistened hands. Rubber
acks the bite-and-hang-on ability to prevent skidding.
Wheels equipped with tire chains

Other extravagances come through legis

to veto single items therein. The right to
veto single items Is a reform long needed,

TRADE IS TREATY ISSUE
PAY fZ5.0U0,0OO FOB CAJIAIj STHIP TO
COLOMBIA IS URGED.
Senator Ransdell Says United States
Cannot Afford to Reject It From
Stand of Buainess or Justice.
AN FRANCISCO, Jan. 11. Urging in
the open Senate today an early ratifi
cation of the pending treaty with Co
lombia, under which the United States
would pay S25.000.000 for the Panama
Canal strip, Senator Ransdell declared
that the United States could not afford
to reject the treaty from the standpoint
of either justice or business.
When the Louisiana Senator besan
the discussion in open session. Senator
Jones suggested that treaties usually
were considered executively.
"Until Colombia's - grievance is re
moved," said Senator Ransdell, "there
can be no cordial relation and peace
with the Latin American world." He
insisted that the paramount matter to
be considered was not what the people
of the United States thought about the
treaty, but what tne Latin Americans
thought pf " Most ol the nations of
the Souiii and Central America, in his
opinion, sympathized with Colombia
and were inclined to look upon the
United States with ill feeling as long
as the treaty negotiated at Bogota re
"To delay ratification of the pending
treaty further,'! he declared, "would
put a barrier across the path of the
movement to win for the United States
that part of the trade of Latin Amer
ican countries which Europe is losing
because of the war."
"Colombia is weak," the Senator con
tinued, "and believes that we have
wronged her grievously. Can we afford
to reject this treaty even if the justice
of Colombia's claim be denied? Every
principle of justice, of sound business
and wise statesmanship demands that
this treaty be ratified at once."
