A buckskin gauntlet, such as Is worn
by automobile drivers, was found by
Sheriff Hurlburt and deputies a mile
and a half from Tualatin, on a byroad
yesterday, and has been identified as
one worn by Fred Ristman, the chauf
feur who disappeared the night of the
Helen Jennings murder.
This latest clew in the search for the
body of the missing jitneur is expected
to prove a valuable one, and Deputy
Sheriff Bob Phillips will leave Portland
at 5 o'clock this morning with a party
of deputies to scour the woods along

able route of the machine carrying
Kistman and his murderer.
Don Du Mas. Jitneur and friend of
Kistman, was asked by Deputy Sheriff
Phillips yesterday to describe the kind
of gloves worn by Kistman.

tract for hauling the city's wood from
the unemployment camps near Linn ton
to purchasers in Portland, was given a
check for $235.01 by the City Counci

wood hauled by him to date. The
amount paid was $400 less than the
total amount of the bills presented by
Mr. Hart and approved by the city's

AT ST. HELENS YARD
Twin Screw Lumber Carrier,
Costing $135,000, to Be
-Built in 8 Months.
CALIFORNIA RUN SLATED
Bolinder Engines, tnit Handling
System, and Late Model Cargo
Ris and Gear Arrange
ment Are l-'eatures.
In eight months the St. Helens Ship
building Company is to turn out a
lumber carrier for the California &
Oregon Lumber Company, of Brookings.
Cal., that will be constructed along
the lines of a steam schooner except
that the motive power will be two Bo
linder engines of 20-horsepower each,
driving twin screws. The vejssel is to
cost about 1135,004) and will have a
lumber capacity of 650.000 feet.
The lumber concern intends using the
vessel between Brookings, which is
near Crescent City, and ian Francisco,
and the carrying capacity given is
based on fir lumber. She will be 180
feet over all, with a beam of 42.6 feet
and depth of hold of 16 feet. Other
than her. machinery, the vessel will
differ from others of the model "built
and under way on the river in that she
will handle lumber in units of about
3000 feet each, being patterned in that
respect largely after the C. A. Smith
Lumber Company's vessels, the steam
ers Nann Smith and Adeline Smith,
which load in units at the Marshfleld
plant for the San Francisco market.
New Illg Devised.
Krnest Hough, a San Francisco ma
rine architect, has patented a new
cargo rig which requires that steel
booms be used, and the gear arrange
ment differs from that utilized now on
steam schooners. ' A vessel of the gen
eral type of the one contracted for by
the St. Helens interests is on the stocks
on Grays Harbor for the E. K. Wood
Lumber Company, she having Bolinder
engines, but there are no others like
them on the Coast.
Two steam schooners being built for
the Charles R. McCormlck Company at
Astoria, at Wilson Bros." yard, are un
der way, there being 25 frames of the
first vessel in place and the keel of the
second has been laid. That firm made
a most favorable start in getting mate
rial together, and the work of assem
bling it has consequently been rapid.
At the McEachern yard, on Young's
Bay, Astoria, the first motorship or
auxiliary schooner has been started,
and It is understood others will follow.
St. Melons Yard Bnsiy.
At the St. Helens yard a large force
is very busy finishing the City of
Portland, rushing -ork on the City of
St. Helens and starting a third motor-
ship for the McCormlck line, while two
are building for .Mobile Interests.
At the site of the Peninsula Ship
building Company's plant the dredge
Tualatin has resumed digging for the
fill, and as soon as the condition of the
fill permits, ways will be erected. The
dredge Willamette Is getting along sat-
sfactorlly with the till for the new
steel shipbuilding plant adjoining that
of the Northwest Steel Company, and
the prospects are that she will end her
labors there this week.
Still other rirojects are in the air.
one of the latest reports being that a
site may be selected at olumbia City
for a yard: also that inquiries continue
to be received from those wishing to
contract for ships, so. with the business
now in sight, the 1916 season is cer
tain to be the busiest the river has ex
perienced. INDEPKXDEXTS HAVE FOLDEK

telling the convict that the state burled

to work on the public roads near Lin
dale. One man only ran away, but the
convicts themselves brought him back.

extend this plan as far as possible and
give every 'short-term convict a chance
to redeem himself. Within the next
few days he will take 30 more from the
penitentiary and prison farms and put
them to cleaning up the ground where
