AH Moisture Must Be Eliminated
for Shipment Overseas.
WASHINGTON, July 17. (Special.)
The Quartermaster-General's office an
nounced Tuesday that hereafter the
War Department will ship all dried
fruits overseas in a thoroughly dried
condition and not as usually found on
retail markets. Inquiry at the Quar
termaster's office elicits the explana
tion that this means that fruits must
not be subjected to a steaming proT
cess after drying, which process puts
much moisture back in the fruit.
The reason given for the regulation
is that it will save freight space and
avoid any danger of the fruit spoiling.
In addition it is probable the War De
partment has not overlooked the fact
that It will net more fruits for its

Porter Separated From 12
Mellow Quarts.
William Jasper Picked Up With
Load of Old Crow.
.TT'OITRE a wonderfully smart man,
X Mister Officer," remarked Wil
liam Japper, ebony-faced porter, as he
was Intercepted at Ninth and Hoyt
streets yesterday morning. "This here
suitcase wasn't makin a noise like I
owned it, sah, a-tall, but I guess -you've
got me connected up with it, all right."
Patrolman Sorenson commandeered
the suitcase and escorted Jasper to po
lice headquarters. The luggage was
pretty heavy and the officer's sus
picions were confirmed after the offi
cial count showed that the suitcase
contained one dozen quart bottles of
"Old Crow." The liquor was not of the
"Aged-ln-the-woods" variety, but of
better product than the average of the
bootlegger's article, the labels indi
cated. Jasper is well known to the police.
He has been up several times for vio
lating the prohibition law. So It was
decided to fix ball this time at $1000.

provocation, and nothing remains for
the Soviet government but to demand
the recall of the Ambassador.
The importance of the American
Ambassador's action, to Germany, ac
cording to Vorwaerts, is that the war
is to blaze up again in the east and
that German statesmanship is to be
faced with the extremely difficult task
of enforcing the Brest-Litovsk peace
agreement. Not a moment must be
lost, Vorwaerts concludes.

Timber Shipments Show Great
Increase Over April.
Resumption of Normal Log Move
ments Decidedly Pleasing to
Fir Control Board Head and
Oregon Millnicn.
Between 750,000 and 1,000,000 feet
more timber in the shape of logs for
shipbuilding and for the spruce-
I production organization is being deliv
ered daily than has been the case
since April 24r when Kerry's tunnel,
through which logs as far back as
the Nehalem country were being
brought to the Columbia River,
blocked by a cave-in. Delivery of the
first logs moved through since was
made yesterday at Portland, the tunnel
having been reopened late Sunday.
H. B. Van Duzer. of the Fir Control
Board, made known yesterday that the
normal movement of logs had been re
sumed a fact that was decidedly
pleasing to him, as well as some of
mlllmen. Since the tunnel became
blocked it has proven a task on log
gers to supply all demands, while a
greater effort was necessary on the
part of mills to keep up with the needs
of the shipyards and the spruce force.
For various reasons the blocking of
the tunnel was not given much pub
licity, but with the officials of the Fir
Board and Emergency Fleet Corpora
tion it was viewed as a serious obsta
cle. The ability of loggers and mill
men to keep up the supply of material.
regardless of the daily output from the
Isehalem district, is looked upon as an
excellent demonstration of what can be
done in an emergency arising from
any single log-producing section being
cut off. Not a single ship was de-
layed as far as her hull construction
figured by the accident.
Also, the blocking of the tunnel en
abled the logging crews to pile up
considerable material to be hauled out
when the way was cleared and quan
titles of logs will now be dumped into
the Columbia. The outlet on the river
Is at Kerry's, formerly knewn as the
old Wood's landing, being below Clats-
kanie. The logging road connects with
the North Bank road on the lower river
and taps a territory where excellent
specimens in the way of fir and spruce
are to be cut.

district, was also summoned there. It
was said yesterday that an adjourn
ment would be taken tonight until
Saturday morning, as Mix Schwab and
Mr. Piez were to make a trip to Mount
Rainier tomorrow.
There Is talk that some plants have
paid wages in excess of the provision
of the Macey agreement, and Mr. Piez
announced while here that the scale in
every instance would be the maximum
wages, not the minimum. It is desired
to have the agreement defined in every
feature, so there will be no further
excuse for misinterpreting It.

Oaks Amusement Park The air is
drowsy with it, and a listening,

The rippling waters of the stream
