the vessel was driven on the rocks
during a tremendous storm and the
large number of deaths 1s attributed
to the fact that the passengers had
been confined to their cabins '.because
of the violence of the tempest, many
of them being asleep.
The majority of those rescued from
the steamer were unable to speak on
being landed, owing to their fright
ful experiences during the hours of
clinging to the wreckage in the ter
rific storm and cold.

aster occurred at 1:45 o'clock Sunday

constructive programme to meet the
exigencies of a trying period." said
Mr. Williams. "The inter-dependence
of industries of every class with the
people of the state is of such vital
importance that the disturbance of

will be highly reactionary. The sit

from the standpoint of manufacture
and production.
"The work of the commission Is
daily increasing In volume and im

somewhat handicapped by lack of

department at minimum expense.

the policy of advancing and safe
guarding every interest of the state

Brock were married in San Francisco
February 2, 1921'. Now Mr. Brock has

Portland's gain of SO per cent in
foreign commerce for the year 1920
over the previous year places- this
port among the highest in the coun
try for percentage of increase, ac
cording to a statement issued by the
National City bank of New York. The
increase in foreien commerce for the
entire United States for the calendar
year ending December 31, is calcu
lated at 8 per cent, based on an esti
mate of J13,OOO.OUO,ffuO of foreign com
merce for 1920 as against $12,000,000,
000 for 1919.
According to the estimate of the
National City bank, which was made
during December,, exports from the
United States for the year were about
8. 000. 000. 000 as against 7. 920,000,-
000 in 1919. and I2,365,00,000 ill the
year preceeding the war, while Im
ports for the vear are estimated at
more than $6,000,000,000, as against
$3,904,000,000 in 1919, and $1,894,000,-
000 in the fiscal year 1914.
Import Increaae Shown.
These increases occur, on the im
port side, in ail of the three great
groups, "raw materials tor manuiac
turing," "foodstuffs" and "manufac
tures." The demand in the first half
of the year 1920 for raw materials
abroad was very large, and the prices
were very high. The value of raw
material imported for use in manu
facturing will be apparently about
$1,750,000,000, an increaae of about
$250,000,000 over the preceding year.
Crude foodstuffs show no material in
crease, but in the foodstuffs "partly
wholly manufactured," which in
cludes the item of sugar, the total is
more than double in value that of
1919. Finished manufactures will
show a big advance, standing for the
ten months ending with October at
$757,000,000 against $368,000,000 in the
same months of the preceding year.
On the export side, the striking
characteristics are a big nam in the
exports of manufactures, a material
ncrease In the value of raw material,
an increase in wheat ana otner grama
but a big fall off in meatf and dairy
products. Finished manufactures ex
ported will show a total of over three
billion dollars as against about two
and a half billions in the preceding
year, and the grand total of manu
factures of all kinds. Including the
group "manufactures tor turtner use
in manufacturing," will be over four
billions. Raw material for manu
facturing which consists chiefly of
cotton, will apparently exceed 1918
by about $300,000,000, and crude food
stuffs, -which means wheat, rice and
corn, other articles of this character,
will show an increase of $250,000,000.
while foodstuffs "partly or wholly
manufactured" show a big fall off
and the total for the year will ap
parently be only a little over one bil
lion dollars against $1,963,000,000 in
1919 which was by far the highest
record of exports of this class of
foodstuffs. This startling decline in
exports of meat and dairy products is
illustrated by the fact that bacon ex
ports in the ten months ending with
October were only 510,000,000 pounds
against 1.066.000,000 in the same
months of the preceding year; and in
other articles a similar decline.
Growth Is World-Wide.
The growth in our trade occurs.
adds the bank's statement, in prac
tically all parts of the world. True
there is a slight decline in exports to
Europe, but a big increase in the
imports from that continent. ine
value of imports from Europe in the
ten months ending with October was
$1,078,000,000 against d43,uvu,uuu in
the corresponding months of. 1919.
The exports to Europe in the ten
months were $3,721,000,000 against
$4,264,000,000 In the same months of
last year, this decline occurring ap
parently in meat aj) dairy products,
the total exports M meats, most of
which normally gcrto Europe, having
shown a fall of over $500,000,000 in
the nine months ending with Septem
ber, though in her other great re
quirement manufacturing material
the export figures show an increase
at over $400,000,000 and nearly all of
this increase consisted of material
destined for Europe. With the other
grand divisions, the trade shows pros
perity. To our neiglrbors in North
America our exports for the ten
months of 1920 are $1,598,000,000 as
against $973,000,000 in the same
months of the preceding year, and
our Imports from them $1,472,000,000
against $9 3.0000,000 in the same
months of last year. This increase
In our imports from our North
American neighbors occurs very
largely in sugar at a very high price,
and the increase In our exports occurs
chiefly in manufactures of all kinds.
From South America we increased our
Imports about 1 135.000,000. while our
exports to that continent also in
creased about $120,000,000. From
Asia we increased our importations
over $300,000,000 and increased our
sales to the Asiatic countries as a
whole to the extent of about $100,
000,000. The conditions In Japan in
the second half of the year have
somewhat reduced our exports to thai
section of the orient, though to all
the other oriental countries there is a
marked increase down to the very
latest date, and this is true also with
reference to Oceania and Africa to
which there has been a large in
crease In our sales and the corres
ponding advance in our purchases
High Wind Makes Moving of Big
Craft Hazardous.
The movement yesterday afternoon
of a section of the new 15.000-ton dry
dock of the dock commission from
the Cornfoot & Mcintosh plant to a
safer mooring ground at the Penin
sula mill almost resulted disastrously
for the drydock pontoon. The task
was finally accomplished success
fully, but not until three towboats
had exerted all their power to hold
the tow against the high wind blow
ing across the river from the south
east. The pontoon, floating almost
upon the surface of the water and
with ii.- 'ligh sides towering above
the smokestacks of the steamers,
caught all the wind that was blow
ing. Two more drydock pontoons are
scheduled to move from the plant
where they were built to the Penin
sula mill today, but the movement
will be deferred unless the weather
Realizing that the open front of
the Cornfoot & Mcintosh plant was
an unsafe place to keep these pon
toons moored in case a high wind
should come up, the dock commission
sought permission of the shipping
board to moor them at the supply and
sales division concentration ware
house at St. Johns, but this permis
sion was denied by Washington. A
safe berth finally was found inside
