Inland Empire. Twin Cities and Relf
from the Open Uiver Transporta'.ion

Government engineers now fix May
1 for work on the canal to reach a
stage that will permit the passage of
vessels, although favorable weather
and other conditions may advance the
time to April. That does not mean
that all labor will bo finished, as there
will be odds and ends to be completed
that can be looked after without in
terference with navigation.
COTTON fHAHTEKS PAY HEAVY
' Misters and Alswt Hcporled Taken
,rr tieriiian Voyages. .
Mariners are recalling the good old
days of the Spanish-American war,
. when the Tnited States paid heavy
charter rates for troopships, since the
recent engagement of well - known
roasters to load Southern cotton for
t.urniauy. The steamer Navajo, of the
Arrow iine coterie, which has been
steadily in the Portland-California
trade, recently obtained an engagement
for general cargo from San Francisco
to Galveston and cotton from there to
Germany at J7&U a day. San Francisco
authorities estimate that the fixture
Miould net her owners $40(1 to 50t a
day. The George W. Kenwlck. of the
Hammond Lumber Company's fleet, is
said to be considered for the same busi
ness at MOoo a day. although is not
to load at San Francisco, proceeding
direct from the Coast to Galveston in
The rate at which the steamer Oliver
.1. Olson was chartered has not been
made public, but is supposed to be more
than the Navajo is being paid. The
JSritish steamer Alsoa. of the Pacific
Mail line, which has not been in active
service for years, but chartered at vari
ous times for single voyages, is re
ported to have gone into new hands at
JriOO.OOO and to ho in a fair way to ob-t-iin
a cotton charter at JU000 a day.
As steamers have reached Bremen load
ed with American cotton, although
stopped en route by Pritish warships,
it would appear that there is little'dan
gor to be encountered by owners in
chartering fur that trade.
PltlTZEK TO BE INSPECTED
Captain Gunderxm Prepares to Take
Over Pilot Scliooner.
Owing to the fact that he was named
a pallbearer at the funeral of Cap
tain W. Wood, veteran bar pilot, which
is to be held at Astoria this morning.
Captain C. S. Gunderson. head of pilots,
who will form the staff of the Port
ot Portland pilot schooner, Joseph
Pulltier, when she returns to sea, was
recalled at Astoria last night, but is
to be in the city this morning and make
an inspection of the Pulitzer at the
Port of Portland drydock.
It is said that the overhauling of the
vsel will be completed Saturday, but
a wireless outfit Is to be installed and
she will probably not be started for
the lower river until next week. The
Port of Portland Commission has
ordered the schooner outfitted to the
fullest extent and she will be made
comfortable as possible for the men
who are to spend their time aboard,
watchinjr for ships to guide to and
from the river.
CARGO TRANSFER WATCHED
Astoria orficial Safeguard's Govern
ment's Neutrality Interests.
In connection with an order issued
from Washington during the early
stages of the war. cautioning- Custom
House attaches to guard carefully
against any infringement of neutrality.
It develops that Deputy Collector of
Customs Parker, at Astoria, requires
masters of vessels returning to the
river after having delivered cargoes to
make a sworn statement that they did
not transfer any part of their load to
a belligerent carrier or naval vessel.
Instructions arrived from Washing
ton yesterday that it was no longer
deemed necessary for collectors to re
port to the department on all cases,
but vigilance is to be maintained to
prevent any violation of neutrality and
to obtain evidence as to the transship
ment of cargo at sea from a vessel,
cleared at an American port, to any
belligerent carrier or warship.

London Auction Sales Open With Brisk
Demand and Higher Prices.
Bnylna; by America.
LONDON, Jan. 19. The first series of the
1915 wool auction sales opened today with
offerings of 9700 bales, principally merinos,
and practically all were sold. The attend
ance was good, there being present more
American, French and Belgian buyers than
at the last sales.
The demand was brisk and slipes and
merinos said from unchanged to 5 per cent
higher, while greasy cross-breds advanced
from 5 to 10 per cent. The home trade se
cured most of the wool, but America and
France took several parcels of merinos.
The Board of Trade announced, that
merinos may be shipped to America, pro
vided the statutory declaration is made
that the consignee is known to the shipper
and that the wool will not be re-exported.
This, it fs believed, is the reason for the
rise In merinos.

Merinos advanced 10 per cent and cross
breds from 10 to 15 per cent.

mffM futures was a little more active to
day. After opening at an advance of 2
