Mere taBaaloaa t allkely.
Harrison S. Robinson, of San Fran
eico. representing the Pacific Coast
Shipbuilders, rave out a statement to-
. i . hi in which he said:
The passage of the shipping board
soorooriation by the house of represent
..tuea today Is particularly trratlfylnc
.. the supporters of the shipbuilding
industry on the Pacific coast for three
reason: Klrst. conaresa has formally
approved the minimum programme of
he shipping board, which calls for the
einenditura during the year wnicn
commences today of 1704.800.000. This
means that there Is no dancer or any
further suspensions or cancellations by
reason of lack of funds.
Relsjalateaseata Are F.apeetea.
"Second, the shipplna; board Is now
In a position to co forward with the
.naktnr of substantial reinstatements
t suspended contracts in those cases
where, as Chairman Hurley has ex
pressed it. Injustice was done by the
original order of suspension. Tha mat
:rr of these reinstatements necessarily
hm been held up until the shipplnc
board could be advised as to funds
which would be available.
"In his testimony before the house ap
propriations committee. Mr. Rosslter.
director of operations of the shipping
hoard, testified that the suspensions
made on the Pacific coast early In this
year were 'rather ruthless, and ln-Hi-r.trd
his entire sympathy with and
r-.t-nton to supnort a reasonable pol
icy of reinstatements.
More faafraeta Premised.
"Third, congress has heard with ap
proval statements of the Intention of
the shipping hoard to build additional
I irse ships of from 12.000 to 15.000 tons
deads eicht capacity up to a total cost
of $I00.w00.ooo. provided funds for the
lurpose can be obtained from the sale
of a number of the smaller vessels.
The appropriation bill carries an au
thorisation permitting the shipping
board to contract for new vessels up
to a total of $100,000,000.
It is certain that many of the con
traits for these ships will go to the
highly efficient Pacific coast yards,
which produced during the period of
rational emergency more than 50 per
rrnt of all the steel tonnage delivered
to the government.
9ale Kaaae Are Available.
In Its tequest for a total appropria
tion of I704.UOO.OOO the shipping board
asked for new monies to the extent of
11.000.000. undertaking to raise $213,
eou.OO from balancea of old appropria
tions and from cash receipts during the
ear realised from the sale of ships.
The original exaction of the house was
to cut the new appropriation from
1 lsl.000.000 to :i5.000.0o0. The senate
restored tne figure to $491. 000.000.
"The final Joint action of both bouses
of congress provides $.li.000.000 In new
monies. This figure was adopted be
cause of the belief by some members of
congress that the shipping board could
raise a larger amount from the sale of
shipa and could use for the purpose of
ahlp conatruction larger sums from ex
isting funds than the board Itself had
the harbor shortly before noon yester
day in an endeavor to "make out'
strange-appearing sternwheeler that
nosed her way upstream, the sides of
her lower house, from the steps for

gone, and in their place were railings
and wire netting. It was the steamer
Tahoma. until recently operated by the
Peoples' Transportation company, be
tween Portland and The Dalle, but
which was sold to the McCormick in
terests to be used as a towboat at their
St. Helens mills and the plant of the
St. Helens Shipbuilding company.
The original tonnage of the vessel
was 14 and by removing the sides of
the lower house it was reduced to less
than 100 tons, which gives her the ap
Dearance of a small Mississippi river
packet, and her maindeck is cool, while
as she is engaged in towing her crew

elimination of a mate. The steamers
Cowlitz and Hustler were changed
much the same manner some time ago.

Willamette Iron Works Making
Speedy Work of Extensive Repairs
on Former Government Dredge.
First of the three big Scotch marine
boilers built for the Union OH com
pany's tanker Oleum went into place
at the plant of the "Willamette Iron
& Steel Works yesterday, and the others
will follow in short order, and so con
fident is A. O. Pegg, superintending
engineer for the oil corporation, that
the $123,000 job outlined is to be fin
ished on Time that he has fixed July 21
as the date of the trial trip.
The Oleum reached the plant a week
ago yesterday. Her old boilers, which
had been In the ship since her con
struction in 1900, had to be removed.
Preliminary to that a strip of the
steel deck, alongside the after hatch
was cut away, then the boiler fasten
ings released and a number of other
smaller Jobs undertaken, but Thursday
the first of the old boilers was hoisted
by the sheerlegs. The fact the first
went into place prompted Mr. Pegg to
remark yesterday that the force at the
Willamette "went at the Job as thougn
they had been repairing ships always.
The Oleum was originally the United
States dredge Thomas, having been
built for work on Ambrose channel, at
New York, being laid up at the comple
tion of the original project It was
about nine years ago that the Union
Oil company purchased her. removing
the pumps and dredging gear and con
verting her Into a tanker for the Cali
fornia-Columbia river trade, fehe has
a capacity of 44,000 barrels and plies
here with the Washtenaw and Argyll.
The new boilers have a diameter of
14.9 feet, while the old ones were 13.6
feet, so the former are the same as the
government is installing in the 8800
ton steamers building here. In addi
tion to new boilers she is to have new
breeching, new casings, new stack, also
the engines are to be overhauled, the
condensor retubed and overhauled.
while she will be drydocked for clean
ing and repainting the hull.

INIrs. Davis Says Smothering
Spells and Other Troubles
End When Tanlac Re
"Tanlac has piven me just what I
have been looking- for now for 21 lone
years," says Mrs. J. W. Davis, who lives
at Spokane Bridge, Wash.
"I just cant begin to tell you all T
have suffered she continued, "and
when I look back over all those long
years I wonder how I managed to live
through It all. I suffered terribly from
indigestion every time I ate anything,
for my stomach was in such bad condi
tion that my food just seemed to form
into a lump. This undigested, sour food
would cause gas to form so bad that it
was simply out of the question for me
to get a good breath. Then there were
times when I would become nauseated
after eating and couldn't retain my
food. I had headaches, too. and oh!
when one of those awful spells of sick
headache came on me I would just suf
fer death, almost. Then I got to where
I couldn't sleep very well, for almost as
soon as I got settled in bed I would
commence to have smothering spells.
Now all this suffering kept up day after
day for 21 years, and I had reached the
point where I was about past going.
'I saw Tanlac advertised then, and I
commenced taking it right away, and to
my surprise I began to improve before
I had finished my first bottle. I have
been improving ever since, too, and I
am now enjoying as good health as I
ever did. I have a splendid appetite
and thoroughly enjoy my meals, and
everything I eat agrees with me per- I
fectly. 1 never have indigestion or any j
kind of stomach troubles now, and have j
gained so much strength and energy
that I can do all my housework with I
perfect ease. And those terrible head-
aches they have left me, too, and that :
alone Is enough to make me praise Tan- i
lac as long as I live. I don t have those -
smothering spells any more, and I sleep
just fine every night. When I get up
in the morning now I feel so rested and
refreshed, and that tiled, worn-out feel
ing has left me entirely. I know there
is not another medicine in the world
that equals Tanlac, and I never lose an
opportunity to tell others about the
great good it has done me."
