2 STEEL VESSELS AFLOAT
Fourteen Thousand Men Engaged In
Industry and More Are Expected
to Be Added In Spring as
New Plants Proceed.
In a complete check made by the
Chamber of Commerce of the number
of wooden vessels under contract In
Oregon, the total is placed at 118. of
wfcich 75 are for the Government, 23
on private account and 20 for France.
Added to that are two steel steamers
afloat that are being: finished and 21
others are either on the ways or con
In the Portland district alone It Is
said there areapproximately 14,000 men
employed on new construction, either at
shipyards or in plants where machin
ery is being: built, as well as in other
industries where equipment of differ
ent kinds is being: turned out.
The payroll today is the largrest in
the history of shipbuilding: in Oregon,
yet it is estimated that to carry on
the building: programme, as appears Im
perative to deliver tonnage on time,
8000 to 10,000 men must be Joined with
the present force by Spring. They will
be required in new yards now under
way as well as in augmenting the
forces at other establishments that
have only made a start.
There are some plants not yet fav
ored with Government contracts. As
it is fully expected business will be
placed with them, even a more ex
tensive army of workers will be called
on. for by Spring next year it Is fore
cast every plant in the state will be
operating to its maximum capacity.
Even more far reaching than is ap
parent here is the wooden vessel con
struction activity, for it stretches into
the timber along the Columbia River
and the Willamette Valley, also inland
from Tillamook and Coos Bay, wherb
wooden ships are provided for, so it

DOCK RECEIPTS GO HIGHER
Revenue for Last Month More Than
Twice That for August, 1916.
Municipal dock receipts for August,
amounting to $7115.47, exceed those for
August, 1916, by $3325.56, and much the
same story was told in a comparison of
the July revenues. The September busi
ness bids fair to show a normal trend
and it may gain over the last period.
The docks and warehouses are being
used for storage purposes to a large ex
tent and that, coupled with the freight
' that moves across the docks to and
from vessels, is keeping them busy.
The St. Johns terminal, where will be
located the grain elevator and addi
tional wharf facilities -also, will draw
certain trade after the war, while tht
docks in the main harbor will continue
to retain much of their present patron
age, because both are desirably located
for hauling to and from wholesale;.
storehouses. The Fifteenth-street ter
minal is the best in that regard so far
because of having berthins space for
more vessels and there being two ware

houses undoubtedly will be erected in
the rear of the East Washington-street
terminal. No changes are contemplated

PHOENIX. Arts., Sept. 14. Discovery
of 3400,000. cached in the hills of Gra

H. R. Whitman, of Solomonville. The
discovery was made by Joe Walsey, a
cowboy, according to Whitman.
While hunting stray cattle northwest
of Solomonville, Walsey found a tree
trunk from which the handle of a
shovel prortruded. Digging disclosed an
iron box containing old Spanish gold
coins and gold vessels, the intricate
working of which is said to bring the
value of the find above the $400,000 es
timated as its worth in bullion.
The gold has been taken to Stafford,
seat of Graham County, and placed In
security. Old residents say Walsey has
discovered a hiding place of priests
who left that section about 76 years
ago, when it was a part of Mexico. It
has always been thought that the
