May 2 4 Causes Board to
Becomes Party to Suit Against
Adopt Xew Programme.
do 4th 4 lis.
Wooden steamers offered for sale
under proposals that were to have been
considered May 4. though there failed
to be any offers filed, are to be placed
on the market for private sale and the
probabilities are that those carriers
and uncompleted vessels not bid for
yesterday, when tenders were again to
have been received, will be included in
the private sale programme.
C. D. Kennedy. Portland agent of the
division of operation, was yesterday
Informed by the shipping board,
through Harold H. Eby of San Fran
cisco, coast manager, that the wooden
steamers would be sold either on a spot
cash basis, the payment of 50 per cent
down and the remainder in two years,
partial payments, to be made on the
unpaid balance quarter yearly, or 25
per cent paid down and the remainder
in three years.
Small Agencies' Favored.
Tt was indicated that the shipping
board would consider proposals of
"about $100 a ton," which is regarded
here as a much lower figure than it
was first intimated by the board be
accepted. The cost of the wooden
fteamers here has been figured at from
$630,000 to $650,000, which did not take
into consideration the overhead of the
emergency fleet corporation or ship
As regards the sale plan, shipping
board officials point out that it favors
the small interests as well as large
steamship and shipping concerns, since
the former can make a partial cash
payment and use proceeds from the
operation of the vessels with which
to meet later payments. Negotiations
are to bo conducted through the sec
retary of the shipping board.
Several Veaaels) Are Sold.
The vessels offered for bidders May
4 numbered 24, some being in harbors
of the United States and others being
on various voyages. There were 15 of
the vessels sold several weeks ago, in
cluding ten of the Daugherty type
5000-ton carriers constructed at Or
ange, Tex., and five of the Ballin de
sign 4500-ton steamers, which were
turned out by the Supple-Ballin Ship
building corporation of this city.
Most of the wooden vessels now op
erating under the shipping board ban
ner are of the Kerris and Hough types.

Itched. Cuticura Heals.
"I had been a sufferer from pim

pimples were scattered over
my face, and they itched bo
that I used to scratch and
I did not even sleep. I
found out about Cuticura
so I sent for a sample. I
then bought more, and
after using two cakes of Soap and
two boxes of Ointment I was healed."

VANCOUVER, Wash.. May 26. (Spe
cial.) Clarke county, the Port of Van
couver, the city of Vancouver and the
Vancouver commercial club have filed
with the interstate commerce commis
sion a petition in intervention in the
proceeding which has been instituted
by the Commission of Public Docks of
the City of Portland, the Port of Port
land, Portland Chamber of Commerce
and the Portland Traffic and Trans
portation association against Walter
D. Hines. director-general of railroads;
the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Rail
way company. Northern Pacific Rail
way company. Great Northern Railway
company, Oregon-Washington Railroad
& Navigation company, Oregon Short
Line Railroad company, Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul Railway company
and the Camas Prairie Railroad com
pany, asking for a reduction in rail
road rates between Vancouver and Co
lumbia river basin points correspond
ing with those which are asked by
In addition to the formal allegations
as to the status of the various pe
titioning interveners, the petition sets
forth various statistics and advantages
of Clarke county and Vancouver. It
says that a "large part of the county
is engaged exclusively in growing and
shipping fruit, especially prunes.
Dairylncr GrowiDC Iadnstry.
"The county also is peculiarly adapt
ed to dairying and an extensive busi
ness in dairying is carried on therein,
and a considerable part of euch dairy
products is shipped to points outside
the state. The county has between 50
and 60 miles of water frontage on the
Columbia river and is served by vari
ous boats engaged in the transportation
of freight and passengers by water be
tween points in the county and other
points in the state of Washington and
The petition further alleges that Van
couver has the same advantages of lo
cation that Portland has with respect
to the transportation of all traffic be
tween it and the Columbia river basin
and the same handicaps as Portland by
reason of the parity of rates with Se
attle. Tacoma and Astoria; and in re
spect to these advantages and handi
caps, the petition in intervention re
affirms substantially the allegations of
the complaint filed by Portland and the
Ocean Traffic Hindered.
Under the present schedule of rates
railroads haul freight to Seattle. Ta
coma and Astoria for the same charges
as to Portland and Vancouver. This
gives the former points such an ad
vantage over the two latter that Van
couver and Portland cannot hope to
have a very large ocean-going busi
ness so long as the present schedules
exist. Ships seeking cargoes will not
ascend the river to Portland and Van
couver and incur the extra expense oc
casioned thereby so long as they can
get the cargoes at Seattle, Tacoma and
Astoria. The theory on which the com
plaints of Portland and Vancouver and
the other complainants and interven
ing complainants is based is that this
differential in ocean rates should be
absorbed by the rates of the railroads.
According to A. L. Miller, attorney
for the port of Vancouver, the hear
ing on the complaints probably will
come up some time next month either
in Washington, D. C, or in Portland.
If in the latter city, members of the
interstate commerce commission will
come to Portland to attend the hearing.
The public service commission of th
state of Washington, as well as Se
attle, Tacoma and Astoria, are opposing
the desired reduction in rates.

COAST AND EASTERN DAIRT PRODUCE
Batter Market Conditions at Leading Dis
San Francisco and eastern dairy produce
reports received by wire by the Portland
office of the bureau of markets yesterday
Chicago The butter market made a
further decline of 1c here today under
the Influence of continued heavy receipts
and little buying demand. Trading during
the day has shown some improvement, how
ever, over Wiat reported for the latter part
of last week, and there la some little under
tone of llrmness In some quarters today.
More butter Is going to the storehouses to
avoid taking loser, but the market shows
quite an accumulation Just the same. Cars
continues to be dull: however, there is more
Interest being shown at present prices. Sales
were practically all made at 55c. We hear
of 5514C being bid this afternoon.
New York-f The weakness in the market
continued today, with another decline
amounting to !-c. With a few houses there
waa a fair amount of business transacted
but trading as a whole was very unsatis
factory. Buyers showed little Interest and
apparently were holding off. A number of
receivers were offering concessions of about
4c below quotations, which failed to pro
duce much businees. Car lota of Canadian
and centralized have been withdrawn to
large extent from the market. A few have
some confidence bed upon future export
business. At the present time there are nn
healthy indications. Receipts Saturday were
S890 tubs. storage holdings were Increased
about 1 500 tub, while the street stocks
reported this morning were almost 500o
tubs heavier than Saturday.
an Francisco A very quiet dav Ik re
ported by wholesalers generally and buying
Interest waa almost lacking, due to prevalent
weak feeling among dealers. Prices are
evidently fully 2 cents lower, although it Is
very difficult to make an accurate quota
tion tecause of the very light trading. A
few sales took place at lower prices, but
dealers were net willing to trade on this
oasis. The filling of a small governmenl
order this week will take care of some
of the surplus, while very little outside
inquiry is reported today. Saturday's re
ceipts, amounting to 173.671 pound, were
unusually heavy for that day.
