wood ship contracts is held largely re

The ITmtti Abmt
Shipping Board Sends Word to
Columbia River Yard.
Tentative Steamship Freight Sched
ule Will Be Discussed.
SEATTLE. Feb. 3. Members of the
Trans-Pacific Tariff Bureau, compris
ing steamship lines operating to the
Orient from North Pacific ports, today
postponed their meeting to discuss a.
new tentative freight schedule until to
morrow. With a quoted rate of J40 a ton from
New York to Yokohama, announced by
the United States Shipping Board,
the IMe (n:
Announcement From Charles Pier
Expected Today Substituting Big- I
gcr Vessels to Re liuilt of Steel
At least two of six steel steamers,
work on which was ordered suspended
at the plant of the Columbia liiver
Shipbuilding Corporation, will be com
pleted as originally planned. Rein
statement orders were received yester
day from the Shipping Board to Alfred
K. Smith, president ot the corporation.
As two of 10 vessels ordered suspend
ed at the Northwest Steel Company's
yard were reinstated last week, the
elimination of a total of 35.200 tons of
new carriers from the cancellation list
is most encouraging here.
"It is true the reinstatements on
two of the vessels have been received."
Kaid Mr. Smith last nfght. "Material
for those ships was in such shape that
no doubt the Shipping Board has re
garded it as economy to proceed with
their construction."
The impression in steel shipbuilding
circles is that there will be additional
reinstatements, based on the amount of
steel on hand for the vessels. Detailed
reports are now on the way to the
Shipping Board showing material on
hand and the amount en route, and
when those statements are checked it
will, no doubt, be realized that a sav
ing can be made in carrying out more
of the contracts.
An important announcement is ex
pected today from Charles Piez, director-general
of the Emergency Fleet
Corporation. Unofficial reports reach
ing here are to the effect that his ob
servations will place a different as
pect on the threatened cancellations,
as it is expected the Shipping Board
and Emergency Fleet Corporation will
favor the completion of the programme,
with the substitution of larger vessels
lor some of those that would have been
laid down last under the present con
tracts. Mr. Smith is planning to leaye the
latter part of the week for the East,
and it is understood his mission is in
the interest of obtaining contracts for
the larger ships. If the contracts are
awarded, some of the steel material
assembled could be utilized, though not
a greater part of it.
Six Weeks Assignment Made to
Deepen Grays Harbor Channel.
MOQUIAM, Wash.. Feb. 3. (Special.)
The Government dredge Jichie,
formerly used on the bar here and now
iri Portland undergoing repair:, will
be available for work on the outer bar
of Grays Harbor About April 1. She
will remain here six weeks and return
to Coos Bay on her permanent assign
ment. The securing of the Michie was due
to combined efforts of lumber manu
facturers, the commercial bodies of the
harbor cities and the Port Commission.
A large amount of data was compiled
by a special committee in order to con
vince the United States district en
gineer at Seattle that the work asked
lor was really needed and he has au
thorized the resident engineer to pro
ceed with the work which was dis
continued two years ago. The sum of
SS5.000 is available for this work and
the Port Commission has about $100,000
for inner harbor improvements in con
nection therewith.
The depth of water on the outer bar,
when war necessities caused with
drawal of the dredge and also the
larger vessels engaged in off-shore
'umber trade, was nearly 40 feet in the
outer channel at low tide. Now the
ciepth is about 20 feet which makes
navigation unsafe for ve sels of deep
draught and curtails output of harbor
Member of Crew or Janet Carruth
ers Washed Ashore.
ABERDEEN, Wash., Feb. 3. (Spe
cial.) Search for tho body of Dewey
.T. Walker, a member of the crew of the
wrecked schooner Janet Carruthers,
who drowned with five others when
the lifeboat was cairied away, resulted
in the finding of the body on North
Beach yesterday by his brother, Fran
cis Walker, who came here from his
home ;n Walla Walla, as soon as news
of the wreck reached him, and has kept
up a vigil along the beach ever since
the wreck. The body was in an excel
lent, state or preservation and easily
recognizable. The body will be shipped
to Walla Walla tonight and will be
accompanied by the brother who main
tained such a faithful watch.
The body of a sailor of the schooner
Janet Carruthers. picked up about a
week ago, has been identified as A.
Solders, an able-bodied seaman. The
identification was made by Captain
Carrney from the clothing which was
sent to the beach where Captain Carr
ney is looking after the wreck. Cap
tain carrney thinks the schooner can
be saved.
Two of Wood Fleet Could Be Lifted
at Same Time.
In lifting the river steamer Cascades,
of the Shaver line; on the St. Johns
drydock, in company with one of the
.".500-ton wood steamers, an illustration
has been afforded, say Port of Port
land Commissioners, of the value of a
sixth pontoon for that plant. Not alone
could the larger steel ships of the Pa
cific fleet be accommodated, but, in
such cases as the present, when there
Jire several of the 00-lon wood ships
ready to drydock, two could be docked
at the same time.
The Cascades went on the dock Sat
urday to have the hull resheathed and,
because she occupies the two inside
pontoons, cannot be floated until the
big steamer is floated from the other
three sections tomorrow. Usually, the
Shaver fleet patronizes ordinary steam
boat ways. The rush of work now at
the plant of the Portland Shipbuild
ing Company precluies ways being
available for short jobs, so the big dry
dock is the only haven.
Less Than Half as Many Men Work
ing as in September.
Between September 15 and February
1 there was a decrease in the force of
men employed in wood ship plants of
the Oregon district reaching 8518. the
payrolls showing 6793 workers when
the present month opened, whereas
September 30 the force included 15,311
And, in the opinion of Emergency
Fleet Corporation offi-ers and ship
builders, the end is not vet, lor more
steamship owners here said the North
Pacific rate would have to be cut to J6
in order to compete and absorb the
transcontinental freight charges.
Delegations From San Francisco and
Tacoma to Inspect Portland's
Water Terminals.
Borings at tho St. Johns municipal
terminal to determine if possible the
character of substrata, undertaken
when a settlement of the grain ele

Commission of Public Docks fully ex
pects to consider a report TTiursday, so
an adjourned meeting, scheduled for
this morning, will be continued until
Two drilling machines are being
employed. A full statement of the ma
terial gone through, together with all
data possible to obtain from such op
erations, will be laid before the com
mission. The investigation was begun
as soon as it was apparent the struc
ture was slightly below the level of
its original position, and it was de
cided a week ago to suspend work on
the roof until the investigation was
Tcrsons visiting the site during the
past few days, some of whom are re
ported to have expected to see the big
concrete bins toppling owing to rumors
circulated, have found that the settling
has ceased. Men familiar with the
situation express the view that the
settling will not be repeated.
Members of the Tort of Tacoma
Commission, among whom is Frank
Walsh, formerly chief engineer for the
Port of Astoria Commission, are due
in the city today on an inspection of
Portland's water terminals and to look
over the programme recently outlined
for additional development. Also in th
city is a delegation from the San
Francisco Board of Harbor Commis
sioners, including H. A. Oser, chief
wharfinger; A. J. Burton, purchasing
agent, and F. fi. White, chief engi
neer. The San Franciscans are bound
for Puget Sound, the trip being to
study facilities and conditions at Coast
harbors. Both parties are to be shown
over the harbor.

"Impossible!" you say. "Why, market

True enough. Yet these more costly cuts are only
Part of the animal. When Armour and Company buy a
hog they pay 174c a pound live weight Qanuary 20
market quotations) for the whole animal a3 it stands in
the pen 17yic a pound for meat, bones, bristles, entrails
even the dirt that clings to the animal's sides. This
price for the live hog means 23c after allowing for shrink
age and cost of handling.
Let us see how the various cuts sell at wholesale,
after the hog has been killed, the meat separated from
the inedible portions, and dressed at considerable expense.
For the feet which we bought at the rate of 17Kc a
pound we got 6c a pound; back bones and trimmed neck
bones returned 5Kc; ears which cost 17jc per pound
sold for 7c; livers brought 3 Kc; hogs' brains and knuckles
brought 8Xc a pound; hogs' heads with tongues out were
quoted at 10c, and with tongues in at lOKc; the snout
was worth 8c and the kidneys 8c a pound.
In short, the January 20 wholesale price-list con
tained some thirty-seven cuts and portions under the
pork heading, and of these, fifteen brought in less per

Br Id sc. and Iron Company Acquires

and llivets.
Announcement was made yesterday
by the Northwest Steel Company of its
retirement from the structural steel
field, in which it lias operated since its
organization years ago. and that its fu
ture efforts will be confined to ship
construction. The structural steel
business lias been sold to the North
west Bridge & Iron Company.
W. H. Culle 3. chief engineer of the
Northwest plant since l:t0. is the head
of the Northwest Bridge & Iron Com
pany, having resigned from his former
position. For the present the latter
company will handle its product at the
plant of the Northwest Steel Company,
but 'is planning an Independent plant,
a site for which la now under conslder
at ion.
"The change means that Mr. Cullers
and his associates have acquired all of
the structural steel stock of our com
pany and they will carry on the business
hereafter." said J. 11. Bowles, president
of the Northwest corporation. "We will
continue to operate as shipbuilders
The purchasers will handle all of the
manufactured output, including bolts,
nuts, and rivets.

Sheep are handled on a similar basis.
On the edible portion of beef animals there is an
actual loss. A 1,000 pound bullock costs from $160 to $180.
Only some 650 pounds are edible meat, and this sells
wholesale for from $125 to $145.
It is obvious that Armour and Company can make

dressing, cooling and distributing has been added.
Profits are made through manufacturing into com
mercial by-products those portions of the animal that
until recent years were wasted or destroyed. And on
our total business last year, we made but 1.8c per dollar
of sales. The by-products actually make meat cheaper
to the consumer and more remunerative to the producer.
Their production is the result of many years of re-investment
of earnings to make this scientific development
possible and of years of endeavor in upbuilding many
kinds of markets for them.

new work is to be carried on in Oiecon

years in the struct ural steel line and, in
undertaking this plant. It is believed
considerable new business will be
drawn to Portland." said Mr. Cullers.
