LIE TO AUSKA IS
Columbia River to Be Included
in Service by Border Com-
pany of Puget Sound.
PORTLAND TO GET BENEFIT
Results of Lust Year's Campaign
for Northern Trade and Com
mciufinent of Railroad Work
Expected to Bo Factors.
Starting the first vessel, the steamer
Despatch, from Astoria. May 4, the
Border Line Transportation Company,
now running between Puget Sound and
Alaska, will maintain a monthly serv
ice between the Columbia River and
Ihe North during the coming season.
While the Despatch will not make Port,
land it is understood there is reason to
expect that certain shipments in pros
pect will be sufficient to induce the
company to send other vessels to
The American Can Company, the
Portland plant of which manufactures
vast quantities of cans for Alaska can
neries, i3 to make regular shipments
on the Border line steamers, forward
ing them from the city by rail to
Astoria, where they will be loaded.
Cannery interests at Astoria, which
operate plants in Alaska, are to ship
regularly. There will also be return
cargoes of the salmon, pack for the
Cans on early orders have been for
warded by way of Puget Sound to be
sent north, on vessels operating from
there and more will follow, as the
facilities to be provided by the Border
line ships are not expected to be suf
ficient to justify sending all consign
ments to Astoria. Portland firms are
reported to be forwarding large
orders by rail to Puget Sound for
rcshipment on Alaska steamers and it
is reasoned- that if arrangements can
be made WjLsr such commodites will
be routed via Astoria.
The operation last season of three
steamers by Portland interests paved
the way for much business being reaped
now and while the type of vessels
was not best suited and high charter
rates and other expenses prevented a
profit being realized, hope has not been
abandoned of establishing a permanent
fleet from here. For that reason the
ships of the Border line will serve a
double purpose, affording an outlet for
Portland business in limited quantity
jind continuing a service to the Colum
bia. In that way it is thought the
value of the Alaska trade, especially
now that the Government has under
taken railroad construction there as an
early step toward opening coal de
posits, can be shown from a strictly
The Border line will continue serv
ice between Puget Sound and Alaska,
but it is understood by shippers here
that after loading on Puget Sound the
vessels will proceed south from Tatoosh
to Astoria and follow the same course
as was taken by the Portland ships
nSDKTtAU DIGGERS 1AY TIP
Drcilgts to Be Overhauled During
Period of High. Water In Columbia.
About June 1 the Government
dredges Wahkiakum and Multnomah,
which have been in almost constant
service since their completion early last
year, are to be withdrawn for over
hauling and will be out of service dur
ing the high-water period. The Wah
kiakum was out of commission for a
short time last Summer, owing' to lack
of funds, and both lost about ten days
during the ice trouble in Winter. The
Wahkiakum shifts today from Eureka
Bar to Pillar Rock, and the Multnomah
which is working at the lower end of
Doublebower Bar, hauls to the upper
end to make another cut net week.
The dredge Portland, of the Port of
Portland fleet, began digging at the
foot of Swan Island, opposite the plant
of the University Shingle Company,
yesterday afternoon. The channel
there Is to be widened. The Willam
ette, which cleared the basin above the
St. Johns bridge that is 1500 feet long
and 600 feet wide, increased the depth
to 30 feet, and she has been shifted
below the bridge for about three days'
work. Later she moves upstream to
work above the island and material
removed will be used to make a fill
beneath the dock of the Portland
Klouring Mills Company. The Colum
bia resumed operations at Astoria yes
terday after having lost about a week
because of a break in the submerged

Port Orford Seeks Direct Line for
