terday for the Portland Flouring Mills
Company's plant, being shifted through
the harbor by the tug L. E. Thomp

Mexican trade and is the second motor
ship fitted here for that business, the
first having been the Angel, which was
towed to San Francisco several weeks
ago for the installation of her ma
chinery, and was commandeered by

BAILEY GATZERT IX SERVICE
State of Washington Ieaves The
Dalles Run to Join Shaver Fleet.
Old-time echoes were awakened last
night by the whistle of the Regulator
line steamer Bailey Gatzert, which left
on 'her initial night trip for The Dalles.
The whistle of the Bailey is probably
the best known' on the river, for It has
sounded since the original steamer
Telephone was commissioned, and, after
it was transferred to the Bailey,
numerous efforts were made to dupli
cate the tone, but they failed.
The State of Washington, which was
on the night run, is now in the Shaver
fleet, she having been delivered to that
line Wednesday night. Negotiations
for her purchase were closed more
than a week ago. One trip was missed
by the Regulator line with the night
boat, but the Bailey was gotten in
readiness to leave last night. She re
turns today, and will operate on a daily
schedule under command of Captain
Geer, with Captain Short as pilot. The
Dallas City continues on the route

Liberty Loan lunc Sold to Depositors

Increase Deposit n.
HILLSBORO. Or., May 17. (Special.)
Government bonds on the Installment
plan is the method adopted by the
Shute Savings Bank of Hillsboro for
popularizing the liberty loan. The
bank announced today that lack of cap
ital need not prevent anyone from own
ing a bond, -and it Is believed that the
Hillsboro institution is the first to
come forward with a simple method
which will make possible the general
distribution of the loan, upon the im:
portance of which so much stress is
The plan merely substitutes pay
ments for a bond for regular deposits
in savings accounts, the bank buying
the bond and the depositor paying in
installments. No charge is made for
the service and, while banks through
out the United States are generally
handling the bonds for customers with
out charge, this is believed to be the
first instance where an offer has been
made that will permit persons of small
means to join In the loan. The only
explanation made by the management
is that it was believed all should as
sist the Government, and this method
was the most effective a bank could
All Hillsboro banks show heavy cash
reserves as a result of high prices for
last year's crops.
ROUND-UP GOATS SHEARED
Directors Find Keeping of Animals
PENDLETON, Or., May 17. (Special.)
The herd of 16 goats bought last year
by the Pendleton Round-up as a pos
sible attraction has proved to be , a
profitable Investment, regardless of the
fact that they wero dropped from the
programme of the show last year. They
were to be featured in a goat-roping
act, but it was found that the act would
be too slow to fit in well.
The herd was kept, however, and has
been browsing all Winter on the
Round-up grounds. They were sheared
this week and each yielded a fine
fleece. Since mohair is worth 60 cents
a pound, the Round-up directors are

RISE IN RIVER IS CHECKED
Only Slight Gain Made in Stage at
. Portland Yesterday.
Attaining a height of 16.9 feet early
yesterday morning, the Willamette
River did not change much here, ac
cording to a reading of the official
gauge at the Morrison-street bridge at
7:30 o'clock last night, which showed
17 feet. The Weather Bureau forecast
was for a stage of 18 feet today and
18.2 feet tomorrow, and that the
stream would probably fall slightly
Measures were adopted yesterdav to
prevent damage to roadways at Pine
and Oak streets, the Diamond O barge
Oregon being sent there with a load
of gravel, a derrick being used to
dump large piles of the material onto
the roadway, so the weight would
prevent it being raised by the freshet.
On Alnsworth dock the lower level

terday and precautions there to hold
the roadway intact were in piling
railroad steel and similar heavy ob
jects on the dock.
DISTRICT CHANGE OPPOSED
Chamber of Commerce Against Em
bracing Oregon in Northern Zone.
On the ground that there Is closer re

reaching here having their headquar
ters in the south, the Chamber pf

States Senator Chamberlain and Rep
resentative McArthur to use their in
fluence in having Oregon retained in
the present district of the United
States Steam vessel Inspection Service,
and not combined with Washington
and Alaska in a proposed separate dis
trict. The first district now embraces
Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Califor
nia and the Hawaiian Islands and
really has to do with all licensed ves

ing before Congress to hold California
