Separation of Oregon From Califor
nia In New Supervising District
I Opposed Harbor Exten
sion Committee Named.
Fathered by Captain E. W. Spencer,
who took th old railroad ferry Kalania
on her trial trip ii years ago, a resolu
tion was adopted by the Port of Port
land Commission yesterday, urging
Congress to consider seriously the se
lection of the Columbia River as a
naval base. In extolling the advan
tages of the stream in that regard, the
fact the ferry Kalama nas noi
dr clocked since her construction and
is in a good state of preservation to
day was dwelt upon.
The Port went on record in me mai
ter of division of the first supervising
district of tho United States Steamboat
I...n.w-tlnn Service. A bill before Con-
f-r... nrnviiiea that the district, which
embraces all waters and rivers west of
the Itockv Mountains, the Hawaiian is
liind and Alaska, be divided so Cali

would mean the headquarters ot this
district would be at Seattle. 11 is

orders, broke loose and landed blow

The third army, standing pn the ill-
fated line of the Dunajec, was practi
cally wiped out. and its disaster was
responsible for the whole retreat. The
next army, the eighth, commanded
by the dashing cavalry officer, Brus
sllov, that never before had been ob
liged to retire, was caught half way
through the passes of the Carpathians,
and In the disaster of its northern
neighbor its right flank was exposed
and badly crumbled.
By extending its front to the north
and pulling together at Przemysl it
was able to check the momentum of
tho onrushing Germans on the San.
The central powers declared the San
battle was a pitched one and that the
following ones on the old Grodek line
and around Lwow were great victories.
The facts of the case were, accord
ing to the highest commander in Ga
llcla. that from the first day's fighting
on the San it was decided by the Rus
sians practically to give up Gallcla for
the moment. Th Germans and Au
strian were receiving reinforcements
hourly, and a definite stand at any
point meant a combat under conditions
favorable to the Germans and an in
vitation to them to deliver a crushing
The want of ammunition had now
become acute and certain Russian bat
teries on the San at that time had less
than 20 rounds of ammunition for each
gun. Prxemysl was not in a state of
defense aa repairs on the works de
stroyed by th Austrians before the
surrender to tho Russians In March
had not been completed.
Holding Prxemysl was like trying to
hold a ruin, and when the Germans be
gan to bring up tneir neavy gun, mc
holding of th fortress was not. even
considered by tho Russian comman
ders. Heavy reinforcements were not
vallable to the Muscovites, wnue inc
whole railroad system of Germany was
working overtime that tne uancian
drive might not falter.

the Russians to withdraw, fighting a
rear guard action and inflicting heavy
loss on the enemy without exposing
their army to a crushing defeat. The
Dunn lee drive was th nesul of the
enormous concentration of artillery.
Neither on the San nor at any oiner
nolo, tfi Id t he Germans have the oppor
tunity to bring up any such mass of
guns. As soon as their concentrations
were begun, tho Russians retired. The
balance would come sooner or later,
when the lengthened German lines and
aha shortened Russian communications
would adjust th scales and bring the
wholo line to a standstill.
Thug it was that the Russians held
Prxemysl and the San line for a while
and took a large toll from th enemy,
and Just as they were in a position to
be rushed, evacuated It. only to make
a second stand on the so-called GrodeK
line, the scene of tho Austrian defeat ot
the preceding September campaign.
When the Germans had massed their
formations and artillery for a crushing
blow on this line the Russians fell
back on Lwow and after repeating their
tactics before the Galician capital
again retired to the Krasne line, where
they remained for several months, hav
ing safely escaped the main German

In the meantime there had been two
other armies to the east engaged In
this movement. The 11th army retired
from Its advanced Carpathian position,
from which It was threatening the
Hungarian plain, to the Dniester River. .
then to tne Gnua i-ippa position ana I
later to th Ztota Lippa and a little
further east to what is approximately
its present position.
This arrjjy was widely advertised as
a ruined and routed organization. The
commander told me himself that in the
six weeks of his retreat his army had
taken more than 56,000 prisoners, not
to speak of the losses it inflicted in
killed and wounded. That he lost heav
ily in stragglers and casualties of his
own is probably true, but the loss he
Inflicted was without doubt greater
than his own.
The army to the east was the ninth
army. I spent a week fh this army
during the last days of the retreat.
Kvery man I talked with denied this
army had .been defeated locally and
every officer I talked to said em
phatically that it could advance any
day against its own immediate enemy
but for the orders.
It was forced to retreat to keep in
touch with the eleventh, which re
treated to keep in touch with the
eighth, the flank of which had been
exposed by the destruction of the third
army, which was the keystone of the

Some of the lumber manufacturers
here in Portland and other shippers
are negotiating with a view to starting
an independent steamship line between
Portland and New Orleans, following
the reopening of the Panama Canal.
The plan is to carry lumber from
Portland to New Orleans and to carry
coal from New Orleans to Portland.
C Minsmger, president of the Star
Sand Company, who is active in the
negotiations, has just returned from
New Orleans, where he conferred with
lumber dealer who expect to be in
the market soon for Douglas' fir and
other Northwestern lumber products.
AU preliminary arrangements now
in progress are based on the reopening
of the Panama Canal and the avail
ability of ocean-going vessels follow
ing the close of the war. No operation
are contemplated before those two con
tingencies are met.
Mr. Minsingcr reports that the south
ern lumber dealers will be in positio
to use large quantities of Northwester
fir despite the readiness with whic
they can secure Southern pine. By op
erating through the canal the North
western manufacturers, he believes,
can lay down their products in New
Orleans almost as cheaply as can th
Southern pine manufacturers. Th
superior grade of the local product,
is estimated, soon will win for it
preference in the southern markets.
The other important factor in the
present negotiations is the cargo for
the westbound movement. This cargo,
according to the plans, is to be coa
Coal can be handled from New Or
leans to Portland, it is figured, at
rate of $5.50 a ton. It is shipped into
New Orleans from the Pennsylvania
and West Virginia fields by water at
a low rate. Most of it is floated dow
the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers on
barges. Mr. Minsinger estimates that
a saving of from to to t a ton can
be effected In the price of Pennsylvani

SHOE PRICES JUMP
Dealer Tells of Scarcity
ALLIES ARE HEAVY BUYERS
Will A. Knight Says Dealers Will
Try to Make Up Lack ot Qual
ity by Giving Extra Smart
ness and Comfort.
Along with other necessities, shoes
are rapidly becoming more costly, and
nothing in the long list of things one
must have is aeroplaning faster than
footwear. After six weeks spent in
the East, Will A. Knight, president of
the Knight Shoe - Company. Drought
back the report yesterday that shoes
will be even more expensive, with
more style but less service.
' "They will be more comfortable,
however." said Mr. Knight. "The re
tailers whose conventions I attended
while away have decided not to talk
any more about wearing qualities in
"White high shoes for women is tho
one best bet and they are expensive,
ranging in price from $7.50 to $25 a,
pair. White kid skins that sold fiv;
or six months ago for from 18 to 22
cents a foot now cost from 70 to 75
cents. They are tho prevailing fad.
in the East. Vv'omen are spending $1
for a hat and $10 for a pair of shoe.
"Of course, under these circum
stances a man is lucky' to get shoes
at all. For him there is no marked
change in styles. English shapes with
a flat last and with a somewhat out
side swing are in fashion.
"All along the line there is increased
cost. Even shoe strings have advanced
100 per cent. Insoles now cost mora
than the inner and outer -soles and
the filler all put together did a short
"Leather is up and there is a scarcity-
in this country. Last year we
shipped leather to the value of over
$30,000,000 to the allies and there is
no letup of this movement in sight.
"As a result there has been an ear
nest effort to get a substitute for
leather to be used in shoe-making and
particularly for the sole, which is the
essential p.irt of the shoe. Rubber
compositions for shoe soles and syn
thetic patent substances are now be
ing put out for which much is claimed
and which may replace leather to a
large extent for soles.
"Everywhere I went in the East I
found the fame of the Columbia River
Highway had preceded me. Thoy know
about our scenic drive and many will
come out here to see it.
"Everywhere I went east of Penvrr.
also. I found remarkable prosperity
prevailing. New York hotels aro
crowded and money is plentiful. Ko
tail stores are busy and enormou-t
orders are the rule. Retailors aro
willing to pay any price to the fac
tories to get shoes but they are dif
ficult to procure, although the facto
ries are working overtime."
On his trip Mr. Knight visited Chi

Boston. Rochester, Syracuse. Cincin
