the moat serious troubles, ha said, came
when a ateel cable used on a clamshell

had been used only on three shifts.

the elevator site had been cut and many
artlclea of value stolen.
Tha contract for excavating waa first

given up soon after tha first Winter
freshet overflowed the site. Tha C. J
Couk Company then shouldered the task
and freahet troubles had their effect,
the work being stopped a few weeks
ago. but arrangements were made
through which tha company resumed.
Tha matter of equipment used there
being Inadequate waa mentioned In a
special report from Mr. Ilrgardt. but
Mr. Cook Informed the commission he
would add to that. Tha compensation

In preparing a motion-picture outfit which can be carried easily from

Are From 4 0 lo 0 Per Cent,
With General Booct ot '
4 3 Per Cent.
Scarcely a day passes that Portland
merchants do not receive unwelcome
tidings of a new advance In some com
modity of dry goods. The upward ten
dency that began a year ago con
tinues unabated, and manufacturers
protest that Increased costs of labor
and materials are responsible.
Many merchants look askance at
these explanations and assert that the
advances are wholly out of proportion
to any possible Increase In cost of pro
ductlon and openly charge the manu
acturera with Indulging In profiteer
Ing on their own account.
General Iaereaae) 43 Per feat.
Indicative of the general Increase of
he past year, which haa averaged 4S
per cent In dry goods, are tha price
tatlstlcs compiled by one Portland
merchant and recently submitted to
he women's wage committee of the In-
ustrlal W elfare Commission. The per
centage of Increase la based upon prices
f January. 1917. compared with those
f January. 1911. and are as follows
for varloua staple dry goods commod
Dark calico, increased 60 per cent
light calico. Increased (0 per cent: per

cent: cheesecloth, increased 85 per
rent: cotton blankets. Increased 90 per
cent; bleached muslin. Increaaed 6 per
cent. Since January outing flannels
have advanced to an increase of 100
per cent.
Merchants are advising customers to
employ substitute fabrira for the higher-priced
commodities, but admit that,
In aome Instances, no satisfactory sub
stitutes are available. Outing flannel,
for Instance, cannot be satisfactorily
Dealere Are Suspicious.
Regarding cotton fabrics, dealers de
rlare that scarcity of raw material and
the wide demand of cotton for muni
tions and other war uses is no legiti
mate reason for Its exploitation. Siral
larly they believe that wool, contrary
to Ita nature, does not shrink, but in
creases abnormally in the lapse be
tween the producer and the finished
factory product.
Wool, for example, brought CO cents
a pound to the growers of Eastern Ore
gon, or an advance of 30 cents over
normal prices. Yarn, however, normally
sold at 11.20, now costs $3. Dealers
point to this disproportionate Increase
aa an indication that something is
wrong, and that even increased wages
to factory workers cannot account for
this ratio of Increase.

Extensive Construction In All Sec
tions of Country Blamed for the
Present Shortage of Mate
rial on Pacific Coast.
Hope is entertained by steel ship
builders that some delays being met
with In receiving steel from the East
will shortly be cleared away, so all
energies can be concentrated on con
struction. In fact, it is believed that
there will be Improved deliveries im
J. R. Bowles, president of the North
west Steel Company, said yesterday
that there were about 150 cars of steel
on the way to that plant, but the ship
ments had not been reported as having
proceeded west of Chicago as yet. The
extensive construction on in all sec
tions of the country Is proving an im
mense drain on the steel manufactur
ing plants, and when it is remembered
that each ship of 8800 tons, deadweight,
such as are being built by the North
west Steel Company and the Columbia
River Shipbuilding Company, have
about 2500 tons of material in the hulls,
it is apparent that with all yards on
the Pacific Coast to be supplied trans
portation is a big problem.
On the other hand machinery con
tinues to arrive for woden steamers
that are being built in the Oregon dis
trict and in a few weeks the work of
installing will be undertaken. In spite
of the delay in making known which
firms are to be awarded contracts for
Installing the machinery, no concern Is
being expressed that the vessels will
be taken elsewhere for the work.
J. R. Bourke, assistant purchasing
agent or. the Emergency Fleet Corpor
ation, was In the city yesterday on his
way from Puget Sound to San Fran
cisco, and though it is understood the
principal warehouse for assembling
small equipment and general appurte
nances will be located at Seattle, it is
assumed there will be a warehouse
here as well for the Oregon ships.
There again no apprehension Is har
bored, for Lloyd J. Wentworth. in
charge, and the staff laboring with him
represent a determined force, having
in mind the delivery of ships promptly
and rapidly, and are sanguine means
11 be at hand for outfitting the ships
when ready, even if there is no ware

Steamer Puts Into Eureka With bnt
One Holler in Operation.
EUREKA. CaL. Feb. 15. (Special)
Another chapter in the long story of
mishaps which have beset the Inde
pendent Line steamer F. A. Kilburn
was revealed today when that vessel
steamed Into port disabled after mak
ing slow work of It down the coast
from Astoria, bucking a head wind
and with only one boiler in operation.
The Kilburn docked at her old wharf
here for repairs, and Is not likely to
get to sea again until some time to
morrow. This is the second time the Kilburn
haa put Into Humboldt Bay' in distress
since she and the Breakwater were
withdrawn from the Eureka run. The
Kilburn left Astoria February II.
Barkentlne In From Sidney Will Go

Fuel Companies Say Discontinuance
Will Work Hardships.
. That the discontinuance of the Al
blna ferry will result In an Increased
cost in slabwood for thousands of con
sumers on the East Side was the au
thoritative prophesy of the Alblna Fuel
Company In a letter received yesterday
by the County Commissioners. The
letter was a written protest against the
proposal to close the ferry and give
the space now used as the West Side
ferry slip to the Willamette Iron A
Steel Works, which is seeking addi
tional ground for a fitting-out slip in
the construction of Government ships.
The Eastern & Western Lumber Com
pany also filed a written objection
against closing the ferry slip and of
fered as a remedy a proposal to move
the West Side frry slip to a apace be
tween the North Bank dock and the
American Can Company dock. This, It
Is asserted, would reduce the traffic
along North Front street from North
Seventeenth street and would give the
desired relief to the shipbuilding concerns.
The County Board will take no action
until aome definite decision is reached
by the city administration with refer
ence to closing the street near the pres
ent ferry slip. The board Is willing to
give up the ferry slip space for emer
gency war purposes if the city is will
ing to close up the street at that point.
of More Clerks, Doubling- Staff.
Increased work at the Federal and
Municipal Employment Bureau, where
shipbuilding labor is listed as well as
that for the spruce drive and other
purposes, has necessitated the appoint
ment of two additional clerks by R. P.
Bon ham. United States Immigration In
spector. Mr. Bonham received author
ity from Washington yesterday for the
appointments and Is selecting men from
the civil service list, also a third clerk
for duty at the headquarters.
While a complete reorganization ot
the labor employment work is under
way and It is to be handled by a sepa
rate bureau at Washington, Mr. Bon
ham has been asked to continue In
charge in Oregon for the present. It is
assumed that later the work will be
placed directly under tha new bureau
so none of-the immigration force will
be identified with it. Up to this time
there have been two Federal men in the
employment bureaus here, so with four
at work It Is hoped to catch up with
the detail problems.
Warnings Up for Southerly Blow.
Southwest storm warnings were or
dered up at Marshfleld. and southeast
warnings elsewhere in the district at
C o'clock last night by Meterologist
Wells, of the Weather Bureau. The
forecast for today on the Oregon and
Washington Coast Is that there will
be increasing southeasterly winds,
reaching gale force. North Head re
ported the wind southeast there at 6
o'clock yesterday afternoon, the ve
locity being 20 miles, and the sea was
from Hilo last Friday with a cargo for the
Matson Navigation Company.
The shifting of the Columbia to the At
lantic does not serve to hearten the shTp
ownera, who have been hoping that their
vessels will be allowed to operate on the
Pacific for the period of the war.
The shipping board is working on plans
to take a number of vessels although, aome
of them may not be sent to the Atlantic for
several months. All available craft will be

The steam schooner Johan Poulien, Cap

days. Ordinarily tow boats do the work of
moving dredges along the coast, but Just
now tugs are somewhat scarce. According
to shipping men, the scarcity ot tow boats
results in rather high charges.
