the East Main-street plant to receive
her equipment.
The vessels are all of the Balltn type,
classed as 4500-ton carriers, and be

some of them will find their way to
other waters. With six afloat the
builders have the same number yet to
launch, two of which are well along,
and later vessels may be larger.

there Is a steady output of donkey
engines and such gear for the spruce
production forces and the fitting out
of 8800-ton steel ships is being car
ried along merrily.
Vessels Either Finished or Having
Their Machinery Installed.
Just 70 new ships were afloat in the
Columbia and Willamette rivers yes
terday, representing the handiwork of
crews in every plant along the course
of those streams. Of the number nine
are for the French government and
seven wertf built on private account,
the others being for the Emergency
Fleet Corporation.
At the Merchants Exchange a spe
cial blackboard, where in previous
years there was maintained a list of
vessels In port, has been turned over
by Manager Clark to keeping track of
ine vessels leaving the ways in the
river zone. The board does not show
all that have been constructed during
mo present revival of ship work, as
many have gone, so the comDllatlon
deals with the tonnage either ready for
service or having machinery Installed.

Strikers and Motorship Officials Reach
Agreement at Conference.
ABERDEEN. (Special.)
Practically all the union caulkers
and apprentices, between 45 and 60 men,
who quit work at the Grays Harbor
Motorship yard Saturday morning, re
turned to their jobs today, following a
settlement reported late last night at
conference with motorship officials.
fey the terms of their latest pledge the
caulkers agreed to have at work in the
yard within a week 100 Journeymen
and apprentices, that number being
deemed by the company as essential to
the maximum efficiency of the yard.
carpenter caulkers already placed at
work by the company will continue
caulkers until the union makes good
Its promise.
The union this morning put on the
Job about 20 Journeymen caulkers, 25
apprentices and 20 beadlers, making a
force of about 65 . men now listed as
journeymen or apprentice caulkers.
The anion members are pledged to sud
ply the deficiency of 35 men from the
ranks of other crafts employed in the
yard, and it Is expected that little
trouble will be met in getting that
number of young men to entor t je
ranks of the caulkers. Full co-operation
of the company Is promised.
In the event of the failure of the
union to supply a force of 100 men at
the end of the week It has been said
the caulking situation will be placed
on a carpenter caulker basis.
Absence of Watchman Prompts Mar

Enforcement of water front wan reg.
illations relative to docks used by
ocean-going vessels of 600 tons and
more by United States Marshal Alex
ander has caused the closing of the
Couch-street entrance to the dock ot
the Clatskanle Transportation Com
pany, operating the steamer Beaver.
Vehicles are now routed via Davis
street, where they must leave as well
as enten, and the driveway between
the Couch-street and Davis-street
docks has been closed.
The reason assigned Is that watch
men were not employed by the steam,
boat line. As vessels of the Parr
McCormlck line berth between the
Burnside-street bridge and Couch
street to discharge California cargo
they come within the regulation, so
watchmen are employed. As the steam
boat company did not hare a watch
man when using the same entrance as
the Panr-McCormlck line, the former
was compelled to use the Davis-street
District boards may grant deferred
classification to registrants on the sole
ground that they are employed in the
shipyards, according to a ruling re
ceived by Adjutant-General John Will
iams yesterday. This overrules a post
tion taken by the district board here
that the men must have their Emer
gency Fleet Corporation exemption pa
pers to gain deferred classification.
i he matter came ud as a result of
the meeting of shipyard owners last
week, when it was asserted that many
men almost indispensable in the work
were being put in class 1 by the dis
trict board.
The Adjutant-General telegraDhed to
waxmngton as follows:
Can district board grant deferred
classification on industrial grounds to
registrant employed in the buildine-
and fitting of ships in a plant under
the supervision of the Emergency Fleet
corporation on a claim predicated on
such employment?"
Provost Marshal-General Crowder re
plied: "The answer is yes."
