"Having succeeded in bringing this
line to Portland, we feel that much of
the preliminary labor is ended, though
there are general details yet to be
passed on in connection with which we
must have the aid of the shippers." said
A. C. Stubba. general manager of the
olumbia Pacittc agency. "The sooner
we are able to obtain tangible krwl
edge of the prospective cargo move
ment, the quicker we can furnish Infor
mation toward a permanent schedule.
"Our aim will be to afford full con
sideration to local products: that is.
auch as originate in the territory for
which Portland and the Columbia river
(provide an outlet. Inquiries have been
received from Astoria is to canned
salmon: while there is copra to move
and barley. Whether these may be
accepted in large or small parcels is
to be governed by the information we
are given by all. The more diversified
the cargoes are from Portland, the
more they will represent our natural
and manufactured products abroad, and
the more satisfied we will be that the
service is serving the general com
mercial community."
Humboldt Bay an advance of SO cents
was made on cargo for southern Cali
fornia totaling $7.60. the San Fran

From Mendocino ports the Increase is
50 cents.
Offshore freights are unchanged, ex
cept to Valparaiso and Callao they are
raised from $30 and $32.50 to $32.50 an
$33.50. There is said to be no indication
that lumber tonnage for the Antipodes

So rapidly are vessels being
signed to loading berths here
space for ships is becoming scarce. On

her inspection today.
Shipping board vessels are tKcn
care of at different docks, some where
they load supplies and others where
cargo Is ready, while such as are not
delivered to operating companies are
held elsewhere. Naturally, the wood
ship builders are desirous of gettin
ships away from their plants as rap

Guy M. Standifer. has been tn the east

to do with the reinstatement of the
ships. Shipping board officials have
been quoted in press dispatches as
favorable to the Standifer Vancouver
plant being allowed two or three of the
five vessels, otherwise only ten ships
would be turned out there, as compared
to twice and three times the number at
ther coast yards.
Price May Be Cut.
At the same time, it would not be sur
prising if the five vessels were turned
back, though probably at lower figures
than originally applied, as the con-
racts were signed during the war
period. The yard is regarded In ex
cellent condition for fitting in the ad-
itional vessels, as the fifth will be
floated the last of this month, leaving
ve, or one turn over of the ways,
for delivery. Should the five canceled
vessels be regained provision will be
made for another "turn over" that
would insure the plant going ahead for
several months, by which time private
contracts are hoped for.

Regarding a complaint filed by the

she was delayed in the river after her

such transportation was beyond their
jurisdiction, not having control of any
passenger facilities. None of the de

The Kind You Have .-Always Bought.
' T .UIS is the caution applied to the puhlio announcement of Castoria that ha3
been manufactured under the supervision of Chas. H. Fletcher for over
30 years the genuine Castoria. We respectfully call the attention of fathers and
mothers when purchasing Castoria to see that the wrapper bears his signature in
black.; When the wrapper is removed the same 'signature appears in red on both
sides; of the bottle. Parents who have used Castoria for their little ones in the
past years need no warning against counterfeits and imitations, but our present
duty is to call the attention of the younger generation to the great danger of intro
ducing spurious medicines into their families.
It is to be regretted that there are people who are now engaged in the
nefarious business of putting up and selling all sorts of substitutes, or what should
more properly be termed counterfeits, for medicinal preparations not only for
adults, but worse yet, for children's medicines. It therefore devolves on the mother
to scrutinize closely what she gives her child. Adults can do that for themselves
but the child has to rely on the mother's watchfulness.

System . Devised by Grain Corpora
tion for Handling Crop Under
. Government Guarantee.
A general bulletin was isaued yesterday
by M. H. Houaer, second vice-president of
jrrain corporation, to mnis. aeaiers,
bakers and other flour handlers, outlining
the policy of tho corporation in the handling
of wheat and flour during the ll'lO season.
The bulletin in part follows:
License All wheat flour mills regardless
of sizo, all grain dealers and elevators, all
flour jobbers, all bakers using. 50 barrels
or more per month. While there exists the
authority to license retailers, if found neces-
ary, they will not at the present time oe
put under license. A proclamation govern -In?
licensos will be issued in a few - days.
Then forms of application will be distributed
from the zone manager's -office. License
rules and regulations will shortly be Issued
but co-operation of the various trades will
be accomplished through voluntary con
tracts, a separate contract for each trade,
namely wheat- flour millers, grain dealers
and elevators, flour jobbers and bakers.
These printed contract forms wiii be in
the hands of the second vice-presidents
within a week. When contract forms are
signed they are to be returned to the zone
manager who will at once forward them
to the general office for signature of execu
tive of the grain corporation. Through
these contracts the dealer and miller agree
to pay not less than the corporation guar
anteed wheat price basis and in securing
a proper reflection of not less than that
basis to the producer the corporation pro
tecting the contracting party in the event
of a lower" wheat resale basis established
by the grain corporation. Certain provision
is made in the contracts for the payment to
dealers of ' storage before - and after the
period of advancing premiums if shipping
conditions prevent normal turnover; this
protecting the dealer from tho necessity of
reducing th price to the producer. Tt hats
been determind to put in a premium basis
over the guaranteed price basis and this
premium reflected to the producer when
the situation in the judgment of the wheat
director makes such action advisable. It is
decided that there will be no advance pre
mium over the guaranteed price for the
month of July; a proper reflection of the
guaranteed price basis to the producer is
the guaranteed price at the most favorable
terminal minus freight and a reasonable
maximum handling margin,
is ex Dec ted that comoetition
regulate the handling charge or buying
margin on a reasonable basis. All mills,
dealers and elevators in purchasing wheat
from the producer shall buy on the basis
of the federal standards, using their best
and honest judgment. In the event of a
difference of opinion as to the grade, sample
of wheat shall at once be drawn in the
presence of both buyer and seller, enclosed
in a proper container, and sent to the rone
manager for decision as to proper grade.
Elimination of intermountain absorption
In viaw of the doubt of our authority to
continue to absorb on a theoretical $2 min
imum at intermountain points, we shall
retire altogether from that absorption. The
new basis provides a net minimum of $1,964
at intermountain points included in the new
rail rate and since the literal enforcement
of the guarantee would only make effective
the $2 price at the named points of Salt
Lake City, Pocatello and Great Falls, and
without this new gulf construction netting
St. 964 the producer would oe obliged to
deliver this wheat at these named points
at $2, the result is that the grower is get
ting better net return than under the literal
application of the guarantee- as formerly
Reduced wheat resale nrice Tn the event
of a, reduced resale price for wheat on the
part of grain corporation that reduction
will be based on wheat but Indemnification
made only on flour, the guaranteed price
to the producer remaining at the one price
through the year. Only licensees who enter
into contract relations with the grain cor
poration will be able to avail themselves
of the indemnification in the event of a
lower resale price of wheat. Flour jobbers,
dealers and bakers of 50 barrels and over
should be circularized by the vice-presl
dents, advising they may have protection
of contract in the event of a lower wheat
resale price. Bakers under the 50-barrel-per-month
limit may have the protection
by signing contract, although not under
