In preparation for the revival of ex
port ' business the California Barrel
company has acquired a site for its
principal northwest plat at Vancou
ver, Wash. The site comprises almost
132 acres and is located about 1000 feet
downstream from the plant of the
Standifer steel shipbuilding yards, and
has a frontage of about 2500 feet on
the Columbia river.
The company is a California corpora
tion as the name indicates, of which Ft
I. Koster, president of the San Fran
cisco Chamber of Commerce, is the ex
ecutive head. C. L. Koster, vice-presi
dent, is in charge of the Portland office
of the company.
It is the expectation to ultimately
establish a large plant that will afford
employment to probably 1000 opera
tives and will represent an investment
of ,$500,000, but the site was acquired
with the intention of going aneaa witn
plans when business conditions justify.
Commissioner Barbur Would Cancel
Present Policies.

sum, probably $10,000 to be invested

the city council soon by City Commis

proposal. The insurance rate on the
municipal paving repair plant has been
doubled, he said yesterday, without any
reason whatsoever.
Commissfdner Barbur states that this
plan is being worked out in many of
the large cities of the country with
wonderful success and is preparing
statistics to present to the city coun
cil within a short time.

being conducted under the direct super
vision of P. S. Kustis, chairman of the
western passenger traffic committee.
Under date of March 12, Mr. Vincent
addressed a letter to Director-General
