RECORD CARGO GOES
British Vessel Clears With
407,549 Bushels Wheat.
PORT GETTING BIG SHIPS
Seven Ir.imense loads or Grain
Taken From Columbia.' River
During Present Autumn.
Tha largest wheat cargo ever to go
out through the. Columbia river gate
way left this port yesterday in the
British steamer Isis. The Isis carried
407,549 bushels, or 10.925 long tons of
wheat, all of which was loaded at
Portland. This cargo, valued at 978,
883. was exported by Kerr. Gifford
Co. The Isis is one of the largest
steamers that has ever come to Port
land. Leaving the Columbia dock
yesterday morning, she drew 29 feet
and 3 inches. The honor of piloting
the big freighter down the river fell
to Captain W. W. Babbidge.
One of the most unusual features of
the wheat movement from Portland
and other Pacific ports this season
has been the large size of the vessels
employed. Whereas, before the war,
the movement of grain in cargoes of
more than 300,000 bushels was an un
usual and almost unheard-of event,
seven cargoes above this amount have
frone from the Columbia river during
this crop year.
Four September Cargoes Blgr.
The months of July and August
were devoid of unusually large car
goes, but four were taken out in Sep
tember. The steamers employed, with
the cargo of each, were: Minnie de
Larrinaga, 301.959 bushels: Pilar de
Uarrinaga, 354.666 bushels; Niceto de
Larrinaga. 327.405 bushels; Tannen
burg, 381,828 bushels. .
Three other unusually large wheat
cargoes besides that of the Isis were
cleared during October. They were
taken by the steamers Bermuda. 331,
826 bushels; Heilbronn. 371,629
bushels, and Witram, 308.714 bushels.
The largest cereal cargo ever to go
from the Columbia river was cleared
October 11 of this year in the British
steamer Memphis, which carried a full
cargo of flour, amounting to 111.925
barrels, which amfmnt is equivalent
to 503.662.5 bushels. This cargo was
notable also in being the last grain
corporation flour to be shipped from
any port of the United States.

MEETING DETAILS TOLD
MAXXER OP WIXXIXG SUP
PORT FOB PORT BILL CITED.
D. C. Ilenny Makes Public Plea of
Frank SI. Warren Before
Details of the recent meeting of the
Oregon technical council, at which the
pledge to refer bond issues and meth
od of procedure in regard to land ac
quisition was first made by Frank
M. Warr'a. were made public yester
day by D. C. Henny. president of the
council. Indications last nigrht were
that it was this meeting which turned
the tid-e of popular opinion in favor
of the, port consolidation measures, as
it'was upon tri basis of Mr. Warren's
pledge at this meeting, repeated at
other gatherings, that the Chamber
of Commerce .and other civic bodies
and individuals, who had condemned
the consolidation measure, reversed
their decision and approved.
Mr. Henny's account of what prom
ises to be one of the historic meetings
of the city follows:
The Oregon technical council considered
the Portland dock commission consolida
tion bill at an open meeting, October 26,
called for the purpose of giving the op
ponents as well as the proponents a full
Frank M. Warren addressed the meet
ing and showed in detail that the dredg
ing equipment available to the government
and the Port of Portland is entirely inade
quate to keep the Columbia and Willam
ette river channels at proper dpth. Costly
restriction works are necessary to main
tain depth and reduce annual expenditure.
The army engineers have approved a
80-foot channel from Portland to the sea.
but unless Portland furnishes per cent
or more of the funds, no federal money
under the present law can be made avail
able and the port will inevitably become
closed to the larger ships, which alone
can now compete with world traffic on the
These facts are so obvious" that they
were conceded by ail. The discussion
which followed showed that the consolida
tion bill had been confused by many with
a specific Swan island project against
which serious objections were raised.
Everyone understands that a channel
west of Swan island is necessary and- con
stitutes a part of the general programme
of channel improvement. It is held, how
ever, that even such fundamental features
as the width of the new channel would
require further study and it was deemed
possible that such study might show that
the width as planned may be concluded
to be excessive and objectionable.
It was further held that the lands to be
purchased for dumping dredge spoils and
the use to be made of them after being
-raised must for the present remain an open
Objections were raised especially against
giving unrestricted powers to the . port
commission with reference to arTy Swan
island or other specific project and the
opinion was generally expressed that the
bill could not and should not pass at the
coming election without some voluntary
acceptance by the dock commission of a
restriction of powers to the effect, that
any Swan island or similar project, after
thorough investigation, should first be sub
mitted1 to a vote of the people of Portland.
Frank M. Warren then gave definite as
surance to the meeting, speaking for the
majority of the port commission, that in
case the bill passes, the commission will
submit an amendment to the port char
ter, requiring that the question of the
purchase of reclamation of lands within
any project can be passed upon by the
electorate of the port either by direct vote
or referendum. It was understood that
later similar public assurances even In
more emphatic terms were given by Mr.
Warren before other organizations.
The attitude of the Port commission
fully removed, all objections by the council
and the bill was unanimously indorsed by
The Oregon technical council is
fully representative of the technical
professors in -the state. Many of its
members have given the subject care
ful study and have served on com
mittees of the various civic organiza
tions in Portland reporting on the
bill. The council represents local sec
tions of the American Society of Civil
Engineers, American Institute of
Electrical Engineers. American Socie
ty of Mechanical Engineers, American
Institute of Architects and National
Electric Light Association.

THROUGH BILLS ISSUED
FOR ALL-WATER ROUTE.
Freight Can Xow Be 3Ioved From
Interior of Country to
Because ot arrangements completed
by Swayne & Hoyt, ship operators
of 'San Francisco, with the manage
ment of the Mississippi Warrior
service of barges on the Mississippi
river, through bills of lading can
now be issued for freight moving
from the interior of the country to
Portland and othsr Pacific coast ports
by the all-water route. Information
to this effect was contained in a
telegram received from Swayne &
Hoyt yesterday by H. L. Hudson,
traffic manager of the Port of Port
land and commission of public docks.
The issuance of through bills of
lading, according lo Mr. Hudson, will
place the all-water route on a basis
of competition with the railroada and
it s expected, that a large volume, ot
miscellaneous manufactured articles
now moving to Portland from the
Mississippi valley by rail will be
diverted to steamers. Though there
is no heavy west-bound movement of
any one commodity from this terri
tory, many articles of hardware,
clothing an.d shoes, turned out in the
Mississippi valley are on sale in
Through class and commodity rates
are also to be named to Pacific coast
ports from St. Louis, Mo., East St.
Louis. 111., and Memphis, Tenn.
Freight moving to Pacific ports
from the Mississippi valley will be
carried from New Orleans by the
steamers Eldorado, Alvarado and
Iris, which constitute the fleet of the
Pacif ic-Carribbean & , Gulf line, of
which Swayne & Hoyt are operators.
The service of the new line is to
start with the sailing of the steamer
Eldorado, which was scheduled to
leave New Orleans late last month.
Information of the departure of this
vessel from New Orleans has not yet
been received here, though she is
known to have freight for Portland.
A tariff of the through rates from
Mississippi valley points tp Portland
has not yet been received In this city,
but it is expected that the freight
charges by the water route will be
lower than those quoted by the rail
roads. Ship Reports hy Radio.
