STEAMER KELLOGG IS PURCHASED HERE Northwestern Transportation Company Gets Craft. RUN TO BE TO THE DALLES Additional Vessel Made Xeccssary by Large Freight Bookings. Price "ot Made Public. The river steamer Joseph Kellogg was purchased yesterday from the Kellogg Transportation company by the Northwestern Transportation com pany, owners of the river steamers Olympian and J. N. Teal and agents for the steamers Astorian and Relief. The price paid for the Joseph Kellogg was not made public. The purchase of an additional steamer by the Northwestern com pany was made immediately neces sary by. the demand for a vessel of some sort . to carry the freight that nas been booked for transportation between this city and The Dalles. The low stage of the Columbia river makes the route to The Dalles unnavigable for the deep-draft steamer Olympian and this vessel is not adapted to the carrying of heavy freight. J. N. Teal Ia In Drydork. The steamer J. N. Teal, which has been operating on the Portland-The Dalles run, is in drydock for repairs. So urgent was the need of a vessel to handle the freight that wae accumu lating on the docks that the sailing of the Joseph Kellogg to Kelso, which had been scheduled for last night, was canceled as soon as the purchase was completed and the vessel was loaded and dispatched to The Dalles. or the present, the Joseph Kellogg will leave the Taylor-street dock for The Dalles Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday nights, returning on alter nate days. As soon as the J. N. Teal's repairs are finished, she will be re turned to this run and the two boats will take alternate sailings, main taining a schedule of a departure every day both from Portland and from The Dalles. Olympian to Make Dally Trlpn. The steamer Olympian, heralded by her owners as "the queen of the river," will make the round trip to The Dalles daily when she goes on her summer schedule. This vessel will begin operating in about two weeks. or as soon as the stage of water in the Columbia permits. The only changes contemplated for the Joseph Kellogg by her new own ers are the construction of a "Texas" or deck house, and enlargement and improvement of the crew quarters. The Joseph Kellogg was built in this city in 1900 and has been op erated continuously since that time by the ts-ellogg Transportation company. Pacific Coast Shipping Xotcs. SAN PEDRO, Cal., April 1.
