Standifer Yard Ordered to De
fer Work on Five Vessels.
jbliipping Board Request Said to
Iresage Construction of Greater
v I Jeet of 12,300-Ton Type.
What is accepted as indicating that
the shipping board contemplates laying-
down a greater fleet o 12, 500-ton
reel steamers than was in prospect
last month Is a request reaching the
;. M. Standifer Construction corpora
tion that work be deferred on the last
live of 15 ships under way and that a
detailed report be for.warded of the
amount of material on hand for them.
Of vessels under contract one is in the
water and five are on the ways, with
another about to be floated. Material
is in the yard and on the way that
makes it possible for 13 of the carriers
to be finished.
Of previous suspension orders reach
ing other plants, involving a total of
IS steel ships, they have been modified
jo that six of them were reinstated.
-Of the five at the Standifer plant three
probably will be carried out as orig
inally planned, otherwise the material
and equipment on the ground will be
a loss. '
The Northwest Steel company had
ten vessels involved in the first instructions-,
so with the reinstatements
only eight are not to be built. The
Columbia. River Shipbuilding corpora
tion had eight involved and two were
reinstated, so ix will be lost, while
the Albina. Engine & Machine works
had four suspended, but two were rein
stated. The argument of the shipping
board was that too many 8800-ton ships
and those of emaller size were being
built, and it was officially given out
that the 9500-ton carriers at the Stan
difer plant would not be disturbed.
That announcement, together with
the fact Guy M. Standifer, head of the
corporation, landed in New Tork Tues
day from France, while J. R. Bowles,
president of the Northwest Steel com
pany, and Alfred F. Smith, president
,of the Columbia River Shipbuilding
orporation, are due at Philadelphia
from Portland, is accepted as meaning
important steps are to be taken con
cerning the future steel fleet. For the
past two weeks managers and assistant
managers of the steel ship districts
have been in conference at Philadel
phia, Portland being represented by
Fred B. Pape. assistant manager. Their
discussions are said to have dealt with
changes in the plans to produce larger
vessels. One story afloat is t"hat the
Northwest Steel company and Columbia
River Shipbuilding corporation each
will be awarded five of the 12,500-ton
carriers. The vessels are to be three-
deckers and have reciprocating engines
of of00 horse power.
, The Standifer yard is rated one of
the best on the coast and its force is
said to have attained its greatest point
of efficiency today, so it is reasoned
the shipping board will accord it the
same relative patronage in allotting the
contracts for big ships.

" MARSHFIELD, Or., Feb. 12. (Spe
cial.) What is believed a fight for
possession of the C. A'. Smith interests
in Coos county, was an order issued
today by Receivers Denman and Boles,
of the companies, shutting down every
industry in the concern. The order
includes both Marshfield sawmills and
the seven logging camps at Powers,
throwing 1200 men out of employment.
No definite timo was set for resump
tion of work in any of the plants, al
though some officials connected with
the companies suggested the suspen
sion might not be more than 30 days.
In speaking of the closing, Messrs.
Denman and Boles declared the pres
ent price of lumber does not warrant
the mills and camps running, and it
was added the receivers are not in
command of sufficient funds with
which to finance operations.
Fight for Control Scented.
In view of the situation and the
practical certainty that the matter is
a contest for the control, no resump
tion is expected until the courts ex
haust the fight.
The Mountain States Power com
pany, furnishing power and light for
five towns in the county, have ar
ranged to operate the electric plant at
the large mill where all electricity for
the system is generated. The fur
naces at the mill were recently
changed to oil-burners with the shut
down threatening. The service will
not be interrupted.
Besides the camps and mills, the
Smith company is owner of the C. A.
Smith and -Johanna Smith, steamers
capable of handling 1,250,000 feet of
lumber in one cargo. It was not stated
what disposition will be made of the
vessels during the suspension.
A. H. Powers, head of the Smith
Powers Logging company, was ap
pointed custodian of all the industries
and will be assisted by his eon, Fred
Powers. No help will be kept except
ing sufficient to guard the plants.
Control Shifts to East.
Several years ago C. A. Smith, who
opened the business on Coos Bay, lost
control of the properties to eastern
bondholders, who continued operations
and are claimed to have cleared away
some of the delinquencies under the
direction of John Garriguez and John
K. Lyons. It was said here recently
by a friend of C. A. Smith that he was
now in financial shape to take over
the properties on the basis of agree
ment entered into when the bondhold
ers obtained possession. The receiver
ship followed closely on the heels of
that announcement.
The town of Powers, which made
such a grand record in all the war
drives last year, depends almost whol
ly upon the logging industry, although
having a population of over 2000. The
city will be hard hit if the camps do
not open up again in a reasonable

Lincoln Greatest of Men, Is View.
"Of special interest to citizens of
Oregon is the fact that Abraham Lin
coln waa offered by President Taylor
the governorship of Oregon Territory,"
said Omar C. Spencer. "It was refused
because of his wife s reluctance to
come west, although Lincoln niniseir
was desirous of accepting it. Colonel
E. D. Bakr, senator from Oregon, in
troduced President Lincoln when he
mad his first inaugural address."
Representing the Grand Army of the
Republic, J. U. Stevens said: "I be
lieve Lincoln to be the greatest of the
four men who stand above all others
in the- world, who are Homer, Robert
Burns, William Shakespeare and Ab
raham Lincoln. Lincoln was a genius
for whom we cannot account nor un
derstand from the circumstances of his
birth, youth and surroundings. When
Lincoln reviewed the 32d New York
Infantry, I saw him as a' man of sor
row, though one of intellect. The next
time I saw htm he was an absurd
figure. He was riding with General
McDowell, his elbows bouncing back
and forth and his plug hat bumping
up and down.
Letter to Mother Read.
Patriotic selections were sung by
Mrs. Fred L. Olson. The Gettysburg
speech was read by Elmer V. Lundberg
and a letter written by President Lin

"During his administration, Lincoln
was bitterly criticised," said Mr. Miller.
'The critcsm handicapped him. There
is much criticism of the present ad
ministration and perhaps in later years
we will see that criticism of President
Wilson was unjust and unkind. Presi
dent Lincoln made the C'nited States
a place in which we can all be thank
ful to live."
Lite Example to Bays.
In celebration of Lincoln's birthday
Judge Rossman gave an address to the
cadets at Hill Military academy em
phasizing the value of the life of Lin
coln as an example. "There were just
as many swimming holes, just as many
games and entertaining ways of pass
ing the time in Lincoln's day as there
are now," said Judge Rossman. "but
Lincoln never neglected the chance to
study and improve himself. Let's not
forget that, boys. Some men. too, can
take Lincoln as an example and study."
In addition to the address there were
patriotic songs and recitations by the
students. Joseph Dodd of the primary
department gave a reading. Dr. J. W.

It is not likely that any other shoe factory In America, has been t-o
highly complimented for the quality of its product as has been the
Berrmann Company. 621 Thurman street, this city, and not in a single
instance has the management solicited these strongly worded testimo

Bergmann. one of recent date from Roger Ma.cVelgh. son-in-law of A. L.
Mills, president of the First National bank of Fortland. in which the
Portland-made footwear was spoken of in the most flatterine; terms. And

Of course, we are pleased to receive such praise for those who wear
our shoes, knowing they come from men whose hearts speak the things
they write; but we hope it will be understood that the shoes we made
for Captain Dennison were no better than every pair of the 12,000 we
made for the government, not one of which was rejected or even received
unfavorable criticism. Nor were they constructed of a whit better leather
than tho.-e we are turning out every day for our commercial trade, or
have been making for many years. For example, H. S. Harcourt of the
Oregon Journal, in November. 1916. bought a pair of our shoes, and has
worn them constantly ever since. He is on the street every day, and few
men in the city -walk more miles in a year, yet he has had his shoes half
