" As attorney for E. E. Coovert, candi
8ate for joint State Senator from Mult
nomah, Clackamas and Columbia coun
ties, Charles A. Johns ylll argue before
the Supreme Court at Salem at 10
o'clock this morning- on behalf of Mr.
Coovert's application for a writ of man
damus to require the Secretary of State
to print his name on the general elec
tion ballot with the designation "Re
publican." Mr. Coovert sought the writ ot man
damus following an opinion by Attorney-General
Brown that the law does
not provide any method by which a
party nomination can be made to fill a
vacancy caused by resignation of an
incumbent in ofrice after the primary
nominating election has been held. The
Attorney-General helA that any candi
date running to succeed such incum
bent could do so only as an inde
pendent. George M. McBride. joint Senator
from the three counties, resigned sev
eral weeks ago to accept an indepen
tlent nomination for County Judge of
Multnomah County. Mr. .Coovert, U. A.
Lew is and Ir. H. M. Patton were nom
inated as independent candidates for
the vacancy- at mass meetings of at
least 100 Qualified voters, as required
Later, however, at a joint assembly
cf the Republican central committees
of the three counties Mr: Coovert re
ceived their indorsement. Mr. Coovert
holds that this legally makes him the
Republican nominee and entitles him
to have the designation "Republican"
instead of "Independent" printed after
his name on the ballot.
The theory on which Mr. Johns will
present his case to the Supreme Court
is that Mr. Coovert was nominated by
representatives of the Republican party
from the three counties.
"The primary law was founded on
the premise that political parties are
necessary and useful," said Mr. Johns,
"yet by the opinion of the Attorney
General parties would be deprived of
making nominations to fill vacancies
unless caused by death or the removal
of the incumbent from the state.
"If the Attorney-General's view is
upheld by the Supreme Court, then the
law should, be amended by the next
Legislature. The point has been raised
before, but never settled in court, and
it is to settle the issue as much as to
obtain for Mr. Coovert the party desig

OREGON CITY, Sept. 12. (Special.)
Frank Busch tonight announced that
he would construct within the next two
months a. modern dock on the river
front just south of Twelfth street. The
property will be leased to the Oregon
Oity Transportation Company for a
term of years, although the lease will
be so worded that any boat may dock
The dock will extend 165 feet out in
the river from the shore line and will
be 65 feet across. A modern ware
house 60 by 80 feet will be built on
the dock and another warehouse will
be erected on the shore back of the
dock. The improvement will be made
under a special permit from the Fed
The' contract has not yet been
awarded and Mr. Busch said it may be
two weeks before actual construction
is under way. However, a car of
piling has arrived and other material
is being rushed to the site of the im
Mr. Busch intends to have the dock
completed before high water comes in
the Fall. The dock probably will be
come the terminal dock of the Willam

counties to Mount Angel has a siding
within. 200 feet of the dock site and
Mr. Busch expects the road to oonnect

GOOD TIMES PREDICTED
LUMBER MANUFACTURER LOOKS
FOR FIVE PROSPEROUS YEARS.
M. J. Scanlon, of Minneapolis, Visits
Big Mill at Bend Paper Situa
tion Regarded Puzzle.
BEND, Or., Sept. 12. (Special.)
That the five years following the close
of the European war will be the best
the Oregon lumber business has ever
known, was the prediction made here
by M. J. Scanlon. of the Brooks-Scanlon
Lumber Company, before leaving for
his home in Minneapolis last night. Mr.
Scanlon has been here for several days
on one of his periodical visits to the
company's local plant.
Just at present, according to Mr.
Scanlon, business conditions east of the
mountains are better than in the west
ern section, although every man who
wants work, west as well as east, can
get it. Lumber prices are not yet what
they should be, but conditions are im
proving. Locally, the labor situation is
not acute, but more men could be used.
Speaking of the news print situation.
Mr. Scanlon, who is Interested in the
Powell River, B. C, Paper Mill, said
that there was an unprecedented
Shortage all over the country and that
newspaper publishers were adopting all
kinds of expedients to obtain more
paper-and to economize in its use. Mr.
Scanlon would not venture an opinion
as to how long the condition would

FALSE CHANNEL IDEA
Wooden Flume to Carry Com

CONCRETE WALL GOING UP
Government Building Concrete Bar
rier and Flan Is Conceived to .
"Let Work Go Right Along
Without Stopping Vessels.
Running: sternwheel steamers through
a wooden flume, fashioned much on the
same lines as ones at the Oaks and on
Council Crest, where skiffs navigate,
but consideraDly longer, is to be tried
at Oregon City next week.
The flume is in course of construc
tion, frames and timbering Toeing got
out for the purpose, and it will extend
from the uardlock at the upstream
end of the locks and canal at Willam
ette Falls, a distance of 180 feet down
stream, the scheme being to carry the
walls of the flume at each end to the
bank on the sides, so workmen em
ployed there by the Government engi
neers may proceed with a concrete
dividing wall, under way. Until this
time the wall has been built by means
The flume will be 42 feet wide and
have a depth of six feet and, being'
located at the head of the canal, water
will be carried through the flume, so
beneath and on both sides the bed of
the canal will be left dry. The inside
of the flume will be covered with heavy
canvas, treated with oil, and that will
be tightly spread over the planking,
which is counted on to prevent water
seeping through. The structure will
be staunchly braced, as well as secure
ly supported from below, to withstand
the weight of water and strain when
steamers are passing through.
About 1000 feet of the concrete wait,
which will divide the canal and locks
from the power flumes now used, and
separate as well the Government hold
ings from those of private corporations,
has been built by means of cofferdams,
and about 200 feet remains to ba fin
ished. The depth where it is intended
to vse the big flume is such that build
ing a cofferdam would prove much
more laborious and expensive than the
Had it not been for the desire to keep
navigation open at all times, the wall
could have been finished much sooner
through draining the locks and canal
and putting a larger force of men on
the job. Instead, the aim has been to
carry on the project without imped
ing navigation, and that is what has
led to the adoption of the flume idea.

OVERTIME SCALE IS LOWERED
Longshoremen Grant North Pacific
Line Same Rates Along Coast.
Notification has been given Portland
representatives of the North Steamship
Company, operating the steamers
Breakwater and F. A. Kilburn. that
union longshoremen will handle cargo
hereafter at 55 cents an hour straight
time and 82 Vt cents an hour overtime,
which means the restoration of the
scale in effect previous to the walkout
of June 1. Following the strike the
new scale was made effective, which
provided for the same charge for
straight time but 1 an hour overtime.
No change has been made in general
cargo rates aboard deepwater vessels,
which remains at 55 cents and Jl. In
the case of the North Pacific line they
are now paying the same scale at
Portland as is . in effect at Astoria,
Eureka and San Francisco. At the
"Big Three" line, which now employs
union longshoremen at San Francisco
and non-union men here, while the
dock force does the work at Astoria,
it is understood negotiations are still
in progress between men of Union No.
5 and the management of the fleet.
