ACQUAINTANCE IS RENEWED
Officer Stationed Here Years Ago

of Four-Year Detail
"Lieutenant-Colonel Charles L. Potter,
Corps of Engineers, U. S. A., was on
duty here from November 30, 1897, to
May 11, 1S98, ana the day following the
San Francisco earthquake and fire he
reached the city for a visit of two days.
He is back again and now be wants to
remain four years.
At least he remarked shortly after
hs arrival yesterday to succeed Colonel
McKinstry, as division engineer and in
charge of the Second Portland District,
that he would have no complaint to
make if official Washington permitted
him to. make his home here for at least
Colonel Potter appears much the
Fame as when here on his first duty.
Of course he was a Kirst Lieutenant
then and it was 17 years ago, so he
bears hi.s Lieutenant-Colonelcy with be
fitting dignity, but he isn't any shorter
or slimmer, and greeted old friends
about the Custom-House as readily and
cheerily as though he had only been
absent a few months, instead of year.
St. Paul Last Station.
St. Paul, Minn., was the scene of his
latest service, where he was in charge
Of river and harbor projects, and pre
ceding that billet he has been in vari
ous parts of the country since H3i.
At that time, at the outbreak of the
Spanish-American War, he was granted
coveted orders to proceed to Manila
with the expeditionary forces and went
there as a Lieutenant-Colonel of volun
teers, being chief engineer officer of
the Eighth Army Corps.
He started from Portland almost in
company with the Second Oregon Unit
ed States Volunteer infantry and his
headquarters at Manila were at the
Ayuntiamiento, in the walled city,
where Company K, of the Oregon regi
ment, was on duty as guard, so he was
in close touch with the organization.
The day of the Malabon engagement.
in which the Oregons took a promi
nent part, he was perched on the roof I
of the Celoocan church, taking in ev-
ery detail of the forward movement
with the Oregonians stretched before
him in their advance. Until October
16, 1S99. Colonel Potter served in the
Portlanders Are Remembered.
Among other responsibilities given
him later, in the United States, was
the Staten Island depot of the Bureau
of Lighthouses, that being in the days
before the Army and Navy were re
lieved from lighthouse assignments and
civilians named as inspectors. Later
he was in charge of the lighthouse dis
trict that included Porto Rico at the
southern extremity, and Lake Cham
plain at the northern end, with Long
Island Sound and other waterways
Many Portlanders are remembered by
Colonel Potter and he says he feels
like it is a homecoming in many re
spects. Colonel McKinstry transfers
his cares today and leaves this evenin
for New York, where he takes up work
that has been followed by Colonel
Koessler. Colonel Potter will assume
immediate charge, with Major Jewett
as his military assistant, and later it
is fully expected that he will devote his
time to Oregon and Washington proj
ects as division engineer, Major Jewett
being in charge of the Second Portland
District. Mrs. Potter and daughter are sidered at Thursday's session the mat
to remain in New York for a time while ter of providing roofing made here was

COMMISSION' ADOPTS TARIFF
Xo Changes Made In Kates for
Freight on Municipal Bocks
With no changes in rates and only
minor alterations in regulations, the
Commission of Public Docks yesterday
adopted its rearranged tariff bearing
on all charges, no features of the grain
tariff applying on Dock No. 2 having
been disturbed, though it had been sur
mised in some quarters that charges
would be made for storage, so as to
discourage grainmen leaving cereals
there for more than & reasonable time
after 60 days.
The commission, after consulting
with Deputy City Attorney Latourette,
awarded a contract to the Brayton En
gineering Company for the construc
tion of Warehouse B, in the rear of
Municipal Dock No. 1. in the sum of
$86,990, and it is provided that asbestos
roofing be used. When bids were con-
bone of contention. The warehouse
is to be 330 feet long, with a width of
176 feet, and is to be completed in 120
Among other things, the commission
approved the granting of a revocable
permit for the construction of trackage
connections between the new ware
house and Front street. It was decided
to readvertise for bids in connection
with dredging to be done In the slip at
the north end of Dock No. 1, previous
tenders being deemed too high, and the
