Benefit to Portland Shown.
Testerday Mr. Daiijrhtrey pointed out
that it had been largely due to the in
fluence of the Livestock Show that the
prades of hosrs and cattle had been so
largely improved in Orepron, Washing
ton and Idaho. It brinjrs to Portland
the finest herds produced in the West,
and from them are purchased the sires
and dams that have been used to bring
the Oregon grades to their present
The sales at the Portland shows have
brought together the breeders who
have money to invest in their busi
ness, and in consequence this city has
become recognized as the center of the
livestock interests, as well as the home
of the largest stockyards and packing
plants of the district.
Breeder Plan to Incorporate.
The Liestock Show was to have been
Incorporated last Pall by the breeders,
who were willing to finance the build
ing of a large pavilion at Portland. The
war temporarily prevented that being
done, but the assurance is given that
the incorporation will be made at the
Livestock Show to be held November
19 to 24.
It Portland rallies to the support of
the breeders at this time and finances
the $11,500 now needed, the show will
be permanently located here.
. When the pavilion is ready it will be
tendered free of charge for an annual
h.orse show, the plan being to have the
horses exhibited at nigbt.

asked to subscribe is very small in

French Mother Aks That Her 3-Xcar-Old
Daughter Be Adopted.
INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. Oct. 25. The
following is the translation of a letter
received by Henry S. Schell, of this city,
who has adopted a French orphan:
"Sir After the kind letter addressed
to Krancis Charrier (signed Henry S.

not know any soul in your neighbor

noble as is yours to adopt as you your
self have done a little French orphan
as godfather. This is my little daugh
ter. She is 3V years old. My husband
was killed at Verdun. A shell struck
him on the head. This dear man left
the thind day for the war; he suffered
the martyrdom of the two Winters
which he passed in the trenches; then
during the first days of March he was
wounded at the battle of Ypres, in Bel
gium; he was convalescent one month.
He was crazy about his little daughter,
Marie Louise. Since you have a dear
little Rosalie you understand what a
father's love is, is it not so, my dear

left to rejoin his command at Verdun;
eight days after his arrival he fell
dead at Verdun, as I have told you. Be

whom two were buried alive, at Hill
304, near Verdun, 100 meters from my
lamented husband.. Someone wrote me
about it. The bullets and the shells
fell like a rain of hail. No one could
stop them. My third brother died at

sir, you will find somo one who, as you.

PORT BUDGET READY
$310,573.21 Amount to Be
Raised for General Purposes.
LIMITATION LAW HINDERS
As Result of Shortage ot Funds, Tort
Commission May Have to Dis
pense With Ono 3,0-Inch
Snctlon Dredge Xeit Year,
In the budget estimate of the Port
of Portland Commission, as submitted
esterday, the total amount to be raised
for general purposes is 1310,573.21, and
that is said to be about $60,000 under
what is actually required to keep all
departments running, so it may mean
the retirement of one 30-inch suction
dredge for virtually the entire year.
That is a result of the 6 per cent tax
The Commission has ordered the
budget estimate published and Has
fixed November 28 as a time for meet
ing with any taxpayers who might
bject to it. The whole amount to be
raised is $425,111.56. but of that J114.
538.35 is to take care of bonded debt
The assessed valuation of the Port of
Portland District is placed at about
297,000,000. Last year the levy was
2 mills, and this year it may be about
5 mills, of which two-tenths of a mill
will produce enough to retire $50,000 in
pilotage and towage bonds that were
sold last month and which must be
retired July 1, 1918, and one-tenth of a
mill is for the sinking fund also. How
ever, the matter of fixing the rate is
out of the hands of the Commission,
as chapter 225, of the laws of 1917,
provides for the tax levy being made in
dollars and cents as far as the prepa
ration of budgets go and the County
Assessor figures the rate.
Budget Is Prepared.
The estimate of funds required for

That the United States Shipping

be paid longshoremen on the coast is
the opinion of some firms which are
concerned in a proposed higher scale,
copies of which were submitted here
Monday, and more than a week ago
were presented to employers on Puget
Sound. The expectation that the Gov
ernment will regulate the wages Is said
to operate against action being taken
by employers, their argument being
that if they fix a basis it may be
changed in & short time by the Federal
Longshoremen here are paid 60 cents
an hour straight time and 90 cents an
hour overtime. The new scale provides
for 65 cents an hour and $1 overtime
on cargo not excepted, and 70 cents
and $1.10 on cement, plaster and fer
tilizer. Lumber is 70 cents and $1.10,
and piling and creosoted lumber is 80
cents and $1.20. Double winchmen, don-
keymen and raftsmen, also burtonmen

Portland a few years ago after a quick
run from Japan and her smart sailing
qualities were admired by. many. With
the introduction of auxiliary schooners
on the Coast, owners of squarerigged
ships looked on the departure as ex
perimental, but iUere bave been a, few
