HAS 41-FOOT DEPTH
Area of Deep Water Also Has
Been Greatly Increased by
Dredging and Scouring.
SURVEY IS NOT COMPLETED
Distance Between 42-Foot Contour
Inside and Outside Entrance
Kednced From 360 0 Feet to
900 Within Fast Tear.
n one year the governing: depth at
the entrance to the Columbia River
has been increased five feet, a partial
report of the June survey having been
eiven out by Government engineers
yesterday, showing a ruling depth of
41 feet at low water. In June, 1916,
36 feet was the. least depth. Only one
point in the channel had so little depth,
mora water being available in all direc
tions from it, but 36 feet governed for
a short period.
The 41-foot area is not less than 800
feet wide, while for a width of 2500
leet the least depth is 36 feet. Equally
us imnortant as the train on the en
trance range to 41 feet, is the fact
the distance from the 42-foot contour
Inside the entrance to the 42-foot, con
tour outside is only 900 feet, whereas
a year ago It was 3600 feet.
By October the big dredge Chinook,
which has been engaged there since
Mav 1. mav have cut to the 42-foot
mark. The 40-foot depth was reached
the latter part of 1916. and since then
b. tremendous scouring nas resunea.
That is shown in the diminution of the
distance between the 42-loot contours.
The Chinook will be kept going as
lone- as weather conditions will permit,
probably until October 15. There is to
be a channel at least half a mile wide
under the provisions of the entrance
project, but those in touch with the
task believe It will deepen naturally
Conditions to the north of the range
have not all been ascertained. In fact
the survey, which started early last
month, has not been finished because
of interference at times by unfavor

for operating the Chinook the re

CIGAR RAFT HAS SLOW TRIP
Hercules Battles With Adverse
Weather on Way to Golden Gate,
It required nine days for the tug
Hercules to tow a big cigar-shaped
log raft from the Columbia River to
Kan Francisco. She left the river July
1 and reported within the Golden Gate
at 3 o'clock yesterday morning, bound
for San Diego. The raft was built by
the Benson Logging Company, and
4 tho business was established 39
others had preceded it to Southern
The last raft made a poor start and
appears to have been unable to dispel
Ill-luck. On leaving the Columbia the
Hercules, being assisted by the tug
Vallula, the towing chain parted oil
Ko. 4 buoy and tlie raft drifted a mile
Inshore before bping picked up. Then
Fhe ran into a big blow and Captain
Titchworth, of the Hercules, reported
to a passing steamer Sunday that he
was in a bad blow north of Point Arena
and that the towing chains parted
twice. He intended to make Drake s
Bay to rearrange the chain gear. An
other raft, built by the Hammond In
terests at Stella, will leave there today
to be taken in tow by the tug Sea
Rover for San Francisco.

Will Ask Survey lor 4 0-Foot
Channel From Portland
and Vancouver to Sea.
OREGONIAK NEWS BUREAU. Wash-
in s-ton. Julv 10. As reported by tne
Senate commerce committee today, the
river and harbor bill carries the iden
tical appropriations for Oregon and
Washington which were authorized by
the House bill. Not a dollar 01 new
appropriation is authorized.
Senator Chamberlain, a memoer m
the commerce committee, obtained a
change in phraseology of the appro
priation for the Columbia and wniam
ette below Portland to insure the ex
nenditure of a portion of the $300,000
appropriated in reducing shoals be
tween Brookfield and the mouth to
maintain the present uniform depth of
30 feet. In 1912 Congress authorized
a 30-foot channel from Portland to the
sea. and this depth was once attained,
but shoaling on several bars in the
estuary reduced this channel in. some
places to 27 feet, but they have since
been dredged to 30 feet. The amend
ment will insure a continuous 30-foot
channel from Portland to the mouth of
the river. No additional appropriation
for this dredging is necessary.
Senator Chamberlain did not succeed
in getting into the bill the appropria
tion of $975,000 to complete the north
jetty, and it also appears that the com
mittee failed to adopt any of the
amendments proposed by Senator Mc
At the time Senator McNary was
heard by the committee he was assured

looking to a 40-foot chaTinel from Port
land to the sea would be Incorporated
but the amendment is not there. Sen
ator McNary will offer his amendment
In the Senate when the river and harbor
bill comes up for consideration.
Senator Poindexter today introduced
a similar amendment calling for a sur
vey looking to a 40-foot channel from
Vancouver to the sea.
