TRADE OUTLOOK IS
DECLARED BETTER
Bankers See Dawn of Future
Prosperity and Predict
Gradual Improvement.
LUMBER DEMAND GROWING
Trospects "r Bumper Crop Kelied
Vpon to Add Zest to Purchases
for Middle West and Confl-
dencc Said to Augur Well.
With the beginning of Spring opera
tions on the farms as well as of a
seneral renewal of building activity,
especially in dwelling-houses, in the
various towns and cities, the business
outlook in the Northwest has begun to
brighten. There seems to be a some
what better feeling in all lines of
trade. This attitude ts based on the
conviction that the bottom has been
reached. From this time on the im
povement will be gadual and. in the
opinion of bankers and business men.
within the next six months business
will have regained its normal volume.
The lumber indsutry. which has been
in a decidedly unsatisfactory condition
tor more than a year, is showing signs
of betterment. The manufacturers re
port that inquiries are coming in from
the Middle West, where the stocks
since last Fall have been greatly de
nl.ted. HeDorts of favorable crop con
ditions there are having a stimulating
effect. If the domestic demand lor
lumber reaches anywhere near normal
proportions, the manufacturers will be
able to tide over their affairs until the
foreign trade picks up. The European
war has been a severe blow to the lum
ber industry, both on account of the
cessation of building activities in the
war zone and of the paucity of vessels
to carry lumber to markets in other
countries.
Lumber Market Sought.
The Columbia River Lumber Ex
change is making special efforts to
increase the cargo trade on the Atlan
tic seaboard and if its plans are suc
cessful it is hoped a large market for
lumber products of the Columbia River
district will be built up speedily. The
exchange has enlisted the aid and ad
vice of the financial interests of Port
land, with the view of bringing about
a generai improvement In the industry.
One of the leading bankers who is
prominent in the activities of the ex
change Is Kdward Cookingham. vice
president of the Ladd & Tilton Bank.
Relative to the general business out
look, Mr. Newhali, president of the
East Side Bank, says:
"I believe the whole country Is on
the upgrade. I have talked with
many people and they have expressed
the opinion that conditions are improv
ing. Not that we shall experience
any rapid development for some time
to come, but there will be a steady up
ward Diovement. There is a much
better feeling among all classes and
people are more kindly toward each
other. There has been a' sort of feel
ing among the workingmen that they
have been getting the worst of it, and
they have oeen inclined to blame the
corporations, but there is coming a
better understanding between the
workfagman. and. the corporation.
Financial Basis Gives Hope.
"There Is no reason why there
should not be a steady improvement in
all business and tinancial conditions.
The country is on a sound financial ba
sis and what we need to inculcate at
the present time is confidence in our
financial concerns and in the affairs of
the country. We need to be careful
and economical and then we may be
sure that prosperity will come to this
country. It is. in the atmosphere."
Peter Hume, president of the Sell
wood Bank, said: "I think I can see a
decided improvement in conditions.
' There has been antagonism between
workingmen and men of means and
corporations, with the result that in
vestments have been curtailed; but
there is a better understanding. What
we need is something that will furnish
employment, which ought to come with
this improved understanding. We are
Setting down to brass tacks and are
on the upgrade at the present, slowly,
but it is surely coming."
LUMBER MARKET SOUGHT
flans for Transporting Products to
Atlantic Coast Under Way.
The question of moving lumber from
the Columbia River district to Atlantic
seaboard points with tugs and two or
more vessels in tow is under considera
tion by the Columbia River Lumber
Exchange This method of transport
ing lumber from the Columbia River
ws suggested by E. W. Harrison, of
Baltimore, a short time ago. The ex
change has been making a study of this
plan, and the conclusion has been
reached that it will be feasible, the
main question now to settle is the ea
Jlstment of Atlantic shipowners in the
enterprise.
Within the next few days it is prob
able that the exchange will send a com
mi t tee. consisting of Mr. Harrison and
a member of the exchange, to the At
lantic Coast to take up negotiations
with the view of making arrangements
with shipowners for the proposed serv
ice. PAINTERS TO HEAR TALK
Manufacture of Paints and Var
nishes to Be Described.
C. 0 Powers, special representative
of Lowe Brothers' Company of Dayton.
O., will give a lecture for the painters
of Portland tonight at a smoker in
the Hullders' Exchange, on Third and
Oak streets. Mr. Powers will talk on
the various materials entering into the
manufacturing of paints and varnishes.
The lecture will . be illustrated by
stereopticon views, showing the differ
ent countries from which the materials
are obtained and the manner of pro
curing them. Some of the newest meth
ods of finishing will also be demon
strated. The meeting also will be a get-together
session and will be informal.
STEEL BUSINESS THRIVING
Capital Going Into Building Mate
rial, bnt Loans Go Begging.

tracts for war munitions and other
teel products for export, the most en
couraging feature in the teel Industry

against current orders.
At the moment there seems to be
some incentive to place contract be
cause of the low cost of building mi-
terial. especially in steel lines, but
money is not so readily available. In
fact, speculative builders find it al
most impossible to secure loans at rea
sonable rates. -One or two large build
ers in the Eastern territory have em
ployed their own funds in recent con
tracts placed. This is unusual, as a
rule, speculative buildings are put up
with borrowed capital. It is an inter
esting fact also that some tempting
building loans that is. Judged by the
ordinary standard have been offered
here recently from Canada, but tt
seems doubtful that the money will be
obtained here because of the long time
of maturity asked. However, the in
terest rates offered are more than sat
isfactory to capitalists.
RAZING OF BUILDING NEAR
Work Soon to Begin on New Home

west corner of Fifth and Stark streets.

niture store, will. begin between April
5 and 10, in preparation for the erec
tion of the TI,000,000 structure to be
the home of the First National Bank.
J. G. Mack said yesterday that the
furniture company would be able to
vacate the building which it has occu
pied for the last seven years about the
second week in April and expected to
be completely Installed in its new tern-

porary quarters in the Welnhard build
ing, on Fifth street, between Oak and
Pine streets, before April 15. The bank
officials, he has been advised, wish to
begin actual work on the site for the
new bank as soon as the store can
vacate. Mr. Mack said his company
would occupy the entire five floors and
basement of the Weinhard building.
Plans for the new bank building
have not been selected definitely, but
it is generally believed that the build
ing will follow the lmes of Grecian
architecture, in detail resembling the
Parthenon. The building, which will
be typically a banking structure, will
be novel in Portland.
The building which is to be torn
down to make way for the new bank
was erectetLin 1899 for Neustadter

A. I Mills, president of the First
National Bank, left Thursday for the
East, where he will attend the annual
meeting of the trustees of Harvard
University. On his return it is ex
pected a definite decision as to the
plans for the building will be made.

For the financial week ending Fri
day, Portland bank clearings, in com
parison with those of oilier Northwest
ern cities, made a satisfactory show
ing. Portland's total clearances were
$10,946,052, as compared with $10,351,
45a' at Seattle and $1,793,962 at Tacoma.
Portland's excess over clearances at

Bankers of Oregon and the Pacific
Northwest are apparently feeling a
strong degree of interest in the inter
national financial conference which will
be held in- Washington, D. C. May 10.
All nations of the Western Hemisphere
are expected to be represented at the
conference, and in all probability It
will constitute one of the most repre

Invitations will be sent by the Treasury
Department to all National banks In the
country.
The full programme has not been
completed, but v. ill be arranged early
in April. It is believed that the con
ference will give an opportunity for
the clearing up of a good many points
which may be of Importance in financial
transactions of the near future, and
also will bring about an Interchange of
ideas among prominent financiers.
Americans Frame QneHes.
South American representatives who
exnect to oartlclDate in the sessions are
considering and framing questions that
are to be given consideration.
It is believed by business men tnai
one thing that can be aone to advan
tage at the convention will be the dis
f th actual basis of trade
between the United States and South
American countries. There is a gen
eral belief in well-informed quarters
that Urira nrmflnlnt Cain in South
American business can be made unless
it is based on North American capital
advanced to meet South American needs
in the same way and perhaps approxi
mately to the same extent as was true
of German and British capital Deiore

If, as expected by many, it turns out
United States must finance the indus

pects to trade freely or predominantly,
it will undoubtedly be important for

record breaking passenger business
this year," says W. T. Kenney, oi oi
Paul, traffic vice-president ol the
Great Northern who was in Portland
yesterday, "but the same cannot be
said of the freight business."
Mr. Kenney is on a tour of the
Great Northern system lines. He left
Saturday night over the Southern Pacific
for California, where he will meet I
W. Hill, chairman and president of
the Great Northern. Both he and Mr.
Hill will return to Portland within a
few weeks after visiting the California
expositions.
"Not until the lumber business im
proves will the railroads enjoy normal
traffic conditions," said Mr. Kenney.
"The lines serving the Northwest are
feeling the present slump in the lum
ber trade particularly. Perhaps when
the European war is settled conditions
will become better. '
"So far as the agricultural Interests
are concerned, the situation is extreme
ly bright," concluded Mr. Kenney.
"They will put this out in wheat, and
if present prices continue the farmer
will be prosperous. That ought to help
everybody a little."
Mr Kenney predicts that the move
ment of tourist passengers to the Pa
cific Coast this year will break all
records. The California fairs will be
the principal magnets. Then the fact
that travelers are unable to go to
Europe will serve as an additional in
centive. ... T

MINERS BUYING VESSEL
ALASKANS PROPOSE TO PROSPECT
NEAR CAPE WITH TINY CRAFT.
Gasoline Schooner Enterprise Wanted
by Gold Seekers for Trip to Coast
of South America.
Negotiations have been about con
cluded whereby the gasoline schooner
Enterprise, now at the foot of East
Main street, has been purchased by two
experienced Alaska miners who will
use the craft to urospect along the
coast of South America, entering the
Straits of Magellan.
If the negotiations succeed the En
terprise will be the smallest American
ship to carry the flag of this country
so far from home, for she measures
only 58 feet long, 14-foot beam, has a
40-horsepower gasoline engine ana is
about 15 tons register. The distance
to travel would be 6500 miles.
The Enterprise is about 9 years old
and was purchased last year by Her
bert Casiday, master of the gasoline
schooner Mirene. The Enterprise was
built by R. p. Hume, of Bogus River,
to carry freight between Kogue Kiver
and Coos Bay.
It was said that the Enterprise
brought J3000 worth of Portland prop
erty in exchange. Captain Casiday is
away. Chief Engineer Connie Johns,
of the Mirene, said that the Enterprise
would change nanas lor tne fcoum
American voyage as soon as Captain
Casiday was assured that the title to
the property he would receive in ex
change was clear.
The Enterprise is now being over
hauled.
