MAY BE REINSTATED
Construction of Three 9500-
Ton Steamers in Prospect.
VANCOUVER YARD HOPEFUL
Government Work Cntil Foreign
Business Is Available Seems Cer
tain Record of Plant Good.
Reinstatement of contracts for the
. continuation of two or three of five of
the 9500-ton steamers recently can
celed at the G. AL Standifer Construc-
. tion corporation's Vancouver steel yard,
a.a indicated yesterday In the testimony
of J. T. Ackerson, head of the construc
tion division of the Emergency Fleet
corporation, before a congressional
committee, is in line with reports pre-
; viously received statins that in all
probability the Standifer organization
would get such consideration.
; The corporation's original contracts
. called for 15 steel steamers of 9500
tons each, but contracts for- five of the
i vessels were canceled. To date the
i plant has floated four of the vessels
and the fifth will go overboard the
; latter part of July, it is thought. With
. five ways at the yard it would mean
only one "turn over," but if three of the
other vessels are given back, the or
ganization can probably operate into
the fall season, by which time the
Standifer corporation may be able to
, close for satisfactory foreign business.
Work at the Standifer yard was in
full swing when a walkout occurred
; about two weeks ago. The cost of the
strike was considerable, and work on
the fifth vessel was retarded so that
; its launching set for for Juncj 10, will
be delayed about 10 days.
The launching of the steamer Wawa-
' lona last month, with all of her "top
side" gear in place, even to the masts
and funnel, while her own whistle was
. sounding a salutation as she started
down the ways, set a new mark in
the world for floating ships of the size
more than 90 per cent complete. That
has brought the yard to the fore and
proved what the west can do In time
of peace. '
The property was first laid out as a
permanent enterprise and the reinstate
ment of government vessels will af
ford the desired span for carrying
along the organization until private
work is ready to be started.

HOQT7IAM. Wash.. June 11. (Spe

an effort to float the stranded schooner
Janet Caruthers off the beach, near
Copalis, during the latter part of this
month. Tiie tug Galena has been char
tered to tow the schooner to a Seattle
dry dock for repairs.
The tug will take down two large
anchors which are to be placed out at
sea astern of the stranded vessel. To
these will be attached wire cables con
nected with the donkey engine on the
scnooner, which will keep a continuous
strain on the cables at high tide.
Several years ago another stranded
vessel was pulled into deep water In
this manner, in the same vicinity.

"today is the day of all days" and the

Save the Babies.
INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that of all
the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., or nearly one-quarter,
die before they reach one year; thirty-seven per cent.- or more than one-third, before
they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen!
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Oastoria would save many of
these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many cf these infantile
deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures and sooth
ing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium or morphine.
They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity, they stupify,
retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. There can be no danger
in the use of Castoria if it bears the signature of Chas, H. Fletcher as it contains no
opiates or narcotics of any kind.

From Skin Diseases
Itching and Burning Eruptions
Only those who are afflicted with
Eczema, Tetter, Erysipelas boils and
similar so-called skin diseases can ap
preciate the real terrifying discomfort
that comes from these disorders.
The constant plea of those afflicted
is the oft-repeated question, "How
can I find relief from this constant
torture?" No palliative, temporary
relief that causes the terrible itching
to abate for a while, but real, genuine
relief that shakes off the shackles of
the disease and restores the skin to
its former healthy condition.
And temporary relief is the most
that can be expected from local treat
ment, such as ointments, salves, lo
tions, etc., which is one reason why
these diseases seem to hold on with
such tenacity. It is not because they
are incurable, but because they are
improperly treated, that they appear
to be so stubborn and so difficult to
