SIX MORE WAYS WANTED
Colombia Plant Considers Plans to
Increase Steel Vessel Work for
Government Shop Addi
i, tlons Proposed.
Shifting the plant of the Portland
Shipbuilding Company, which is con
cerned in the construction and repair
of river vessels, from the foot of Meade
street to a point south of the yard of
the Coast Shipbuilding Company, so
the Columbia River Shipbuilding Cor
poration may lay down six additional
ways for steel ship work, is a plan be
ing worked out in connection with the
latter plant's programme for turning
out Government vessels.
The Portland plant adjoins that of
the Columbia River yard on the south,
having occupied that location for years
under the management of Charles Nel
son. After the Northwest Steel Com
pany expanded last year and estab
lished a shipyard In connection with
Its business. It was followed by the
organization of the Columbia River
More Shops Proposed.
The latter located Its plant on prop
erty adjoining the Northwest Steel
Company and between that yard and
the Portland Shipbuilding Company's
property, but with the need for much
more space for Government shipbuild
ing, the river frontage of more than
600 feet held by the Portland yard was
In the rear of the Portland yard the
Columbia River plant has ground, and
part of Its shops are there, and It is
the plan to put in more, as the space to
be taken over includes more than is re
Quired simply for ways.
The Portland yard recently closed t
new lease for its holdings, so the prob
abilities are it will be moved by the
Columbia River Interests at the tatter's
Frontaec Already Surveyed.
Surveys have been made of the front
age and quick work will be made of in
stalling the facilities as soon as final
word comes from J. R. Bowles, presl
dent of the Northwest Steel Company,
who is at Washington.
The Northwest yard has four ways
and the Columbia River three, so tti
additional ground will provide space
for twice as many building berths as
the Columbia now has, while the North
west Steel has applied for additional
fill on its land from the Portland, so a
fifth set of ways can be built.
Ships turned out by the Northwest
are contracted for Jointly with th
"Willamette Iron & Steel Works, the
latter installing machinery and fin
ishing the vessels after the Northwest
launches the hulls. The Columbia River
yard will turn out completed vessels,
machinery being constructed and In
stalled there as well as the hulls.
RIVER REPORTS FAVORABLE
Higher Temperature In Interior Not
Followed by Higher Water.
Temperatures over the entire Colum
bia River basin region, which have
been above normal of late, were higher
yesterday than during the previous 2
hours, and the fact the Clearwater
River fell six-tenths of a foot in -4
hours is regarded by Meteorologist
Thiessen, of the Weather Bureau, as
a good indication that all snow is gone
from the lower levels and thai there
will be no further rise here. While
the decline is not rapid, it will con
tinue here for at east four days.

BASEMENTS ARE REOCCCPIED
Front-Street Houses Clear Away
Debris From Freshet.
Since the Willamette River has
dropped to a point below the stage
of 20 feet above zero. Front-street es
tablishments are returning goods to
basements. In all localities it is not
possible to reoccupy the lower section
yet, but some are restoring wire fenc
ing, rolls of paper and such stocks
and in others the labor of cleaning
away sediment and general debris col
lected is under way.
The aftermath of the freshet will
necessitate a considerable outlay in
repairing dock decks and driveway
platforms, though most dockowners
took precautions in the way of placing
weights on roadways, even loads of
gravel being dumped in places to with
stand the lifting of the buoyant timber
by the pressure of water from below.
At the present rate it will be two or
three weeks before the water recedes

United efforts of the citizens of Hunt

struction when a fire wiped out I
block In the heart of the business
section with a loss of nearly $28,000.
The people fought the blaze, which
was fanned by a stiff breeze, for two
hours, and were able to check the

30 o'clock. Most of the buildings
in the city are wooden, and the tem

100 mark the last few days, bo tnat
everything was -exceedingly dry, mak
ing the danger of wiping out the en

The fire was discovered In the
Crlmmlns' barber shop and made rapid
headway. The fire department and
every available man turned out to
fight the flames, and after over two
hours of heroic efforts succeeded In
subduing the conflagration.
The fire destroyed six buildings in
the heart of the town, including the
stores of the Huntington Mercantile
Company, H. H. Mack, George Adams,
a vacant building formerly occupied as
restaurant, Crlmmlns barber shop.
Dewltt's cigar store and W. J. Woods'
real estate office.
The heaviest losses were sustained
by the Huntington Mercantile Com
