Lloyd J. Wentworth. bead of the

being under the impression that he is
concerned in that feature, which is
most erroneous, his department not

Vancoarer yardi now as compared with
the total employed December 20. has
riven rise to the assumption that an
establishments are Increasing their
forces, which is true only to the extent
thst certain skilled men are taken on.
not simply those skilled in other work
who think they can become proncien
in the marine plants.
One feature of the human side of
shipyard work is that the executlre of
each yard believes he hss the best
fore and that "team work" abounds
In every department. Government off!
cera who are la position to know
whether the plants have esprit ae
corps, hesitate to name the one. which,
in their opinion, is the best. For that
reason it is asserted the Oregon yards
are operatic today in a mors satis
factory wsy than before and men and
manager alike are fully cognisant of
the resDonstblltty resting on them to
ad 1 to the ship production of the coun
try this year.

And that Is pot alL Kvery man In

that the builders sre to be depended on
as Ions; as men and material are to be
had. but appreciates what Is the posi
tion of the state of Orearon In pledg
ing iJJ.o tons of wooden carriers
and t0.0 tons of steel ships during
the present year. Steel ships are al
ready In the water to start that rart
of the 101 programme and before

moet creditable showing of the wooden
vessels, the first for government ac
count being yet on the ways.
C. J. Cook Bl Stronger Gear to Cse
oa St. Johns Terminal Project.
Br virtue of a new understanding ar
rived at between the Commission of
Public Dorks and C J. Cook regarding
the excavation for the grain elevator
foundation on the St. Johns terminal
property, the latter Is to resumo work
there as soon as the condition of the
ground permits. He recently ceased
work owing to certain grading gear
having broken down, bat since mors
substantial equipment has been pro
vided and he will carry on the under
taking, thereby averting any danger
to his contract.
The matter was discussed at a spe
cial gathering of the Commission yes
terday. The attitude of the Commis
sion is that no desire la harbored of
forcing the contractor as to the time
of completion, owing to unforeseen de
lays having been experienced through
the freshet, and. as there has been a
third recurrence of that condition. It
Is viewed as just that adequate exten
sion of time be recognised. When the
excavation Is finished the foundation
will be protected by banks of earth to
guard against future freshet difficul
ties. FRESHET HALTS STEAMERS
Locks at Oregon City and Upper
River Service; Suspends.
When the Willamette River reached
11. 7 feet above sero at Oregon City
early yesterday morning steamboat
traffic was suspended for the third
time in two months, due to freshet
conditions. A stage of 11.2 feet forces
the locks to close. The steamer Pomona
Is held above there and the Orahamona
Is tied up here.
The river rose to the lt-foot mark
by 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, gain
rng five-tenths of a foot since S o'clock
In the morning. The forecast la that It
will go to 11 feet today and It. I feet
tomorrow, and Meteorologist Wells, of
the Weather Bureau, doea not look for
much of an Increase after that, unless
heavy rains fall In the Willamette Val
ley again. The morning report from
P.tiaren yesterday showed an Increase
of 1.1 feet there, while at Albany It fell
I f tcct and at Salem rose 1.1 feet.

Ths bonds are proposed to buy (4 acres

While there is every Indication thst
tho bonds will carry by a large vote

furnished in Vancouver to carry voters
to the polls and the same will be true
In many of tho country precincts.
There Is no organised opposition to
the bonds, though various individuals
have spoken against it.
The voting of the bonds will mean
a payroll for Vancouver of not less
