THE HORNING OREGOXIATI. FRIDAY, DECE3IBER 1, 1916.
SHIPPERS ALIVE TO
QUESTION OF RATES
3. N. Teal Returns From Hear
ing Relative to "Long and
- -k Short Haul" Condition.
SPOKANE CHIEF CONTENDER
Temiiorary Lack of Vessels "Used
, as Argument to Try and Have
, Discrimination In Favor of
Coast Terminals Withdrawn.
Whether or not the Interstate Com
merce Commission will grant any relief
to the railroads from an absolute en
forcement of the long and short haul
clause, is, in reality, the question of
prime importance in the series of in
vestigations now under way by the
Joseph N. Teal, attorney for the Port
land Traffic & Transportation Associa
tion, has just returned from Chicago,
where he attended the Initial hearing.
Additional hearings are under way at
Ha.lt Lake City and will be continued
at San Francisco December 4, Portland
December 11 and. Spokane December 14.
Mr. Teal reports that shippers in all
parts of the country are interested In
the proceedings and attended the Chi
cago hearing In great numbers. All
the transcontinental railroads are rep
resented. The railroad, he says, are
holding to their contention for relief
from a strict interpretation of the
fourth section of the Interstate Com
merce code, which prohibits a lower
charge for a longer than for a shorter
haul. Portland vand the other Pacific
Coast terminals are, in effect, asking
for the same principle. Spokane,
virtually. Is the only city actively in
sisting upon a strict interpretation of
the fourth section without relief.
Shippers Showing: Interest.
The case is arousing much interest
among carriers and shippers in other
parts of the country 'and Is just be
ginning to impress itself upon manu
facturers, farmers and business men
of the Northwest.
It is becoming more apparent that
the question at issue Is not one affect
ing wholesalers and jobbers, so much
as the industrial enterprises dependent
upon the shipment of their raw products
across the country and the farmers,
fishermen, lumbermen, wool growers.
fruit growers, packers and all other
agencies who ever have occasion to
ship a pound of freight by rail.
The situation, briefly, is this: Port
land, Seattle, San Francisco and other
cities similarly situated at tidewater
terminals, want the advantage of their
natural locations; the railroads want
to give it to them. Spokane and the
Interior cities insist that rates should
be based on distance and that location
on, or proximity to. navigable water
should not be a governing factor.
Water Competition Is Lever. .
Heretofore rates to the Coast termi
nals have been based largely on the
water rates, which are much lower
than the normal rail rates. . The rail
roads have attempted to meet the water
rates at the terminals without chang
ing the intermediate rates and the
Commission has recognized this prin
ciple of rate making over the objec
tlons of Spokane and other Inter
mediate cities, however.
The Commission has held that so long
as water competition actually existed
the railroads should be permitted to
Now, the water competition Is tem
porarily and artifically suspended be
cause the European war has forced
vessels engaged In this service to with
draw. Spokane, it appears, is seeking
to take advantage of this situation.
The Commission, by tits regent deci
sions In suspending the schedule C.
, rates, has accepted the Spokane view.

SEVEN SHIPS LAUHCHED
GRAYS HARBOR YARDS TIRS THEM
OUT SINCE FEBRUARY-.
Five More Are L nder Construction, and
Owners Have Contracts for Seven
Steamers, Not Y'et Started.
ABERDEEN, Wash., Nov. 30. (Spe
clal.) seven ships have been launche
by Grays Harbor's three shipyard
since these began operation last Febru
ary. Five more vessels are under con
struction, and the yard owners hav
contracts for seven steamers on which
work has not been started.
The biggest of the vessels launched
was the auxiliary schooner Santino,
which went into the water Sunday.
The Grays Harbor Shipyard has two
more ships of similar dimensions under
construction, and has contracts for
three others. The Aberdeen Shipyard
will start on a vessel of the same size
within the next few weeks.
Despite this rush of boat building,
shipyard men declare that the boat
building boom is still in its infancy,
and that the yards here will have

DECKLOAD FIGHT IS STAKTED
Canal Authorities Expected to Ask
Congress for Tariff Change.
Northwest lumbermen concerned in
the movement of manufactured mate
rial by water, are organizing again to
defeat efforts reported to be afoot for
taxing deckloads -or lumber moving
through the Panama Canal. Concerted
action last year resulted In recom
mendations by General Goethals that
deckloads be taxed, belns tabled. On
the strength of a rumor that the Canal
authorities will endeavor to revive the
issue before Congress at the forthcom
ing session, another and stronger op
position Is being formed.
The Seattle and Tacoma Chamber of
Commerce have begun the campaign
through placing facts before the Wash
ington Congressloral delegation and
the same step will be taken here if
added strength Is required. W. B. D.
Dodson, executive secretary of the
Portland Chamber said yesterday' that
the organization figured prominently
in the opposition last year and would
be at the front again if called on. The
building of new wooden ships for the
Canal trade and the expectation that
there will be a heavy movement when
the war ends, brings the deckload fea
ture home to inillinen on the river.

OLD SAILER REFUSED
Insurance on Glory of Seas
Held Too High.
1869 VESSEL PICTURESQUE
Former Clipper and Pride of Boston,
Reduced to Common Barge, Will
Not Be Seen In Portland.
Xotable Voyages Made.
Only for the fact 5 per cent Insur
ance on the vessel was regarded too
hifrh to use her In the lumber trade,
Portlanders would have had an oppor
tunity to see an old-time wooden car
rier that would have formed a strons
contrast with the modern wooden aux
iliary vessels being built here.
The vessel is the Glory of the Seas,
once an American clipper and pride of
Boston and now derated to a common
bargre that must be towed instead of
depending on her foraner great spread
of canvas and model to carry her along.
The vessel Is lying on Puget Sound
and only since her rigging was sent
down to make a barge of her has she
been idle for lone periods since she
was launched at Uoston In 1869.
The Glory of the Seas was well
named, and one of her notable voyages
was from San Francisco to bydney, in
1875, the distance, 6514 miles, being
covered In 35 days. She was offered for
charter here last week, but the insur
ance stODDed negotiations.
Another old-timer being rehabilitat
ed after lying in Oakland Creek for
years is the- Harvester, once a clipper
ship that was built In 1871 at Newbury-
port. Mass, and In the same rieet witn
her were the Reaper, Gatherer and
Sunrise. She Is owned by the Hlnd-
Rolph Interests and will be used be
tween San Francisco and Australia.
Steamer owners engaged In the lum
ber trade, particularly those catering
to passenger business, frown on towing
barges of lumber to California because
of the time lost. Even with steamers
used exclusively for lumber It la rea
soned that, with high freights pre
vailing. It is best to employ a tug to
tow barges and permit the steamer
carriers to run free. At that, barges
are being used between Puget Sound
and the Golden Gate and two have
been taken from Portland to San Pedro
during the past few weeks, but only
because they were to be delivered there
to enter the kelp- trade and rated were
Only a few of the pioneer American
ships now listed In the Alaska cannery

piled up on the beach north of Cape
Mendocino, and her position Is an ex
posed one, the strength of her hull,
though weakened through buckling as
a result of pounding by heavy seas,
holds her together to an extent that
makes mariners marvel.
For 48 hours ending Monday, the
vessel was subjected to a severe on
slaught by the blow raging along the
Mendocino Coast, and the "topside
suffered materially. The social hall
and many of the staterooms were stove
In. Tremendous seas are said to have
washed completely over the vessel, yet
when the blow subsided crews resumed
their labor of stripping the big ship.

be of future service Is Delng saTvecr.

the company abandoned the ship to the

TILLAMOOK. MAY BE BOCGIIT
Elmore Fleet Keeps Busy in Trade
Between Oregon Harbors.
Negotiations are reported on for tho
purchase of the gasoline schooner
Tillamook, largest of the Elmore fleet,
and it is understood an option has been
given that expires in a few days. If
taken, the probabilities are the vessel
will go Into the Mexican trade.
The steamer Sue H. Elmore, of the
same line, which plies in the Portland
Tillamook trade. Is undergoing repairs
at Astoria, and she may resume service,
though usually at this season the own
ers plan to lay-up the steamer owing
to weather conditions. The gasoline
schooner Patsy, flying the Elmore flag,
is In steady service and. with the Tilla
mook operating between Portland and
Coos Bay, the Patsy makes other .Ore
gon Coast harbors. Business has been
brisk so the fleet has had full out
bound cargoes and It is not questioned
