Sailing Vessel Offered at 87s

ENGAGEMENT MADE AT SOS
Eportrt Chary of Taking Vessels

Some "War Move May Put
Tariffs on Toboggan.
Grain freights are stronger ana ship
owners are steadily advancing quota
tions with the result that two tailing
veeisela were offered yesterday, one at
87s d, and tha other at 90 philliners.
while a. steamer was proffered at 100
ehillinss for the United Kingdom and
options of three continental ports. The
highest previous fixture was at 85
ehillinss. paid Monday for the Norwe
gian bark Lindfleld.
A year ago sailors were being taken
at 27s 6d and there was no advance
until war Was imminent. For an in
terim of several weeks exporters and
owners alike were unprepared to en
ter into compacts for future business
and then when the matter of war risks
was gradually worked out and com
merce once more moved in fairly even
volume, the upward' climb of freights
began in earnest and there has been
no pause. '
The recent charter of the British snip
Galgate, reported at 75 shillings, is nrw
declared to have been at 78s ,6d. The
transaction was recorded a week ago
and the market is almost 10 shillings
higher now. The engagement of three
steamers for Portland loading at 80
shillings is viewed as reasonable in
view of the latest demands of owners
for 100 shillings and it is assumed that
the three fixtures were made In ad
vance of the spurt. Their identity has
rot been announced ana being taken for
September-October loading it is pos
sible thev will not be named for weeks,
the steamers to 'come here depending
probablv on which vessels the owners
can order this way most conveniently
during the next few weeks.
The situation is the most puzzling
Pacific Coast grain exporers have dealt
with in the history of shipping, and in
spite of the lack of sufficient tonnage
in prospect and conjecture as to the
outcome of hostilities abroad, some are
warv about engaging vessels, in view
of the possibility that some move may
free large merchant fleets.
The British steamer Epsom, tiow
loading here, shifted yesterday from
the Portland Flouring Mills Company s
dock to Montgomery dock and con
tinued working. She will make anoth
er move or two before getting away
for England next week. Damage sus
tained by the Bteamer Mackinaw, when
a fir broke out aboard Saturday after
she left the Oolden Gate, is said to have
resulted in less damage than was at
first supposed and she will proceed
here shortly to load grain for M. II.
Houser, to Gato. Australia.

Portland Shipments Move From
Genoa Despite War Clond.
Epe&al advices reaching Alfred
Tucker, Portland manager for Meyer,
Wilson & Co.. yesterday indicate that
as yet the East Asiatic line has not
been compelled to exclude Italianports
from Its itinerary because of Italy s
participation in the European war.
though it was generally accepted here
a week ago that the region could not
continue to furnish American .markets
In the face of the hostile situation.
Mr. Tucker was Informed by tele
graph that the liner- Bintang sails
from Genoa June 17 with considerable
cargo for Portland and that the Indian
loads at Copenhagen. Gothenburg and,
Christiania the latter part of June or
early in July. iian Francisco's offer
ings of return freight continue so
lieavy that the company will not route
ships farther north, so goods brought
from the other side will be transhipped
from the Golden Gate here on coasters.
"With the operation of the Olsen line
shortly it is confidently thought that
Portland will be made a regular port
COOS BAY CHAWKIi DRIES TIP
"Work Costing Several Thousand
Dollars Undone in I'ew Days.
JIARPHFIELD. Or., June- 3. (Spe
cial.) The Port of Coos Bay recently
expended several thousand 'dollars in
opening the canal between Coos Bay
and North Inlet landing and the Job
was contracted to be done so that
three feet of water would be" assured
at mean lower low water. From the
inlet proper to North Inlet landing
Is a distance of four miles and this
waterway had been the avenue over
t which all the railroad material used in
the Beale Lake and Tenmile region
was routed. The Port Commission or
dered, a straightening of the channel
between the bay and the Inlet, a mile
, The job has been finished but two
weeks and at low water the newly-dug
channel is dry for a distance of 500
feet in the middle of the cutoff. There
is heavy traffic over the route and the
port will order a new amount of dredg
ing to maintain the desired three feet
at low water, which would give serv
ice at any stage of tide.

High winds on the Upper Columbia
again delayed the steamer J. N. Teal,
which was due yesterday from Lewis
ton, and was said to have entered the
Celilo Canal Tuesday night, and was

that will require a month.. The vessel
was built for a draft of 14 inches, but
at present draws about 21 inches, and
when repairs are made to the hull, and
it Is allowed to dry thoroughly. thero
will be a decided change in what she
draws. There is reported to be some
Improvement apparent in the Upper
Willamette trade since the locks were

are Better, and the Pomona will go
into active service when she again is
in the water.

The City of Portland now owns the
beautiful Gordon Falls On the Columbia

rounding the falls. S. Benson, capi
talist and philanthropist, yesterday
presented' the City Council with an ab
stract and deed for the tract which he
purchased in 1913 for $21,000. It Is
valued now at $50,000.
In appreciation of his 'gift the Coun

ing hearty thanks to Mr! Benson for
The presentation was made by E. E.
Coove'rt, attorney for Mr. Benson. At
the time of presentation the Council
was urged to ctonfer with the Oregon
delegation in Congress relative to ob
taining title to 240 acres of land ad
Joining the Gordon Falls tract on the
south and east. The land is held by
the Federal Government and Mr. Coo
vert expressed the opinion that title
can t procured. Mr. Benson was at
the Council meeting when the gift was
For tli present Mr. Benson has
abandoned his plan. Of acquiring Mult
nomah Falls for presentation to the
city. ' This, he says, is because of the
failure of Circuit Judge McGinn to ap
point a guardian ad. litem for Jennie
M. Griswold, owner Of the tract. This
has delayed the condemnation proceed
ings now under way.
Attorneys for Miss Griswold say she
is a dependent and is incompetent, and
that tha city is taking an unfair ad
vantage of Jier to condemn the prop
arty which she owns. In view of the
attitude of Judge McGinn and of other
facta entering into the case Mr. Ben
son said yesterday that he has aban
doned, at least temporarily, the pla-n of
acquiring Multnomah Falls.
The Gordon Falls tract is one of the
most beautiful along the Columbia
River. The 380 acres In the tract in
cludes half a mlla of waterfront along
the Columbia and extends back into the
mountains to the Punch Bowl.
It is proposed -to change the Larch
Mountain trail from Multnomah Falls
to lead alongside Gordon Falls across
the property given the city by Mr. Ben
son. EMPLOYES TO SEE SHIPS
