OLD DOCKS ARE COXDEJLXED
Tenants Ordered to Leave Tajlor
and Oak-Street Structures.
Decisive action toward clearing the
Portland up-town waterfront of the
dilapidated structures that have been
regarded as eyesores for years was
taken yesterday morning by the com
mission of public docks when it is
sued two orders, one condemning the
south 75 feet of the Taylor-street
dock and ordering all tenants to
leave this structure, and the other
condemning the Oak-street dock. Both
of these old wooden docks have been
pronounced by the waterfront com
mittee as unsafe and liable to col
lapse at any moment.
The condemnation order, as issued
by the dock commission, requires the
owners of the condemned structures
to tear them down at once.
A number of the old up-town docks
which have outlived their period of
safe and active service have been
recommended by the waterfront in
vestigating committee for condemna
tion, but action has been postponed
from time to time for more than a
year. Yesterday's order to raze the
two- docks was precipitated by a re
cent survey by the investigating
committee of waterfront property
following the high water.

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 28. (By
the Associated Press.) Aggressive
measures have been adopted by the
shipping board to insure fair treat
ment for American merchant ships in
the award of trading privileges in
Although but partially revealed by
negotiations now in progress, the
board's policy is understood to rest
on the proposition that other nations
must give every proper opportunity
to ships which fly the Stars and
Stripes or else run the risk of en
countering retaliatory measures placed
within the prerogative of the board
by the new shipping act.
There is every indication as re
vealed by officials that the American
government will stand behind such
a programme and every confidence
that it will succeed without serious
opposition, in placing the American
merchant marine on a proper level in
Strong PrtWmt Made.
A situation which has brought the
board's policy into prominence exists
at Alexandria, Egypt, in relation to
contracts for the carriage of Egyp
tian cotton to the United Kingdom
and the United States. In view, of
board officials, British shipping in
terests have taken an unreasonable
attitude toward admission of Ameri
can vessels to that trade, and strong
representations have been made
which confidently are expected to
have the desired result.
There is no disposition here to re
gard the Alexandria problem as con
stituting a serious disagreement in
itself, but there is a feeling that it
will set a significant precedent.
Negotiations which have led up to
It really are concerned with the
broader subject of admission of the
shipping board's representatives into
the conference of shipping interests
which control suet awards as that
at Alexandria and the general con
sideration of the board as a factor
in shipping decision.
Details Not Disclosed.
Just what steps have been taken
by the board against Great Britain
dealing with the Alexandria situa
tion have not been made known here,
but board officials said they had no
information to bear out press dis
patches that an "ultimatum" had
been delivered to the British ship
ping lines. The same dispatch men
tioned a possibility that retaliatory
measures against British ships in
American ports might be adopted
should the American, protest fail, but
officials here described these nego
tiations as too delicate to permit of
It is realized here that to bar Brit
ish ships from American ports, as the
board has authority to do, might lead
to a serious international incident and
the impression is given that such a
recourse stands well in the back
ground, even though it never is lost
sight of as a possibility. The general
expectation is that a few days will
see r)preciation of the American at
titude abroad and a readjustment
which will be satisfactory.

Profit-Taking by Leading Holders
CHICAGO. July 28. Wheat prices de
clined today largely as the result of an ap
parent halt In export demand. The mar
ket closed heavy, 1 to 1-jiC net lower, with
September il.-lj'.'t to 1.5- and ijeeem
uer to $1.27. Corn finished it a
cents to ic up, aid oats lost i4 to c. In
provisions, the outcome was 2i, to 3oc ad
.Downturns In wheat came after a dis
play of strength which lasted until about
midday. Continued sixiallness of rural of -tennis
together with gossip tliat export
business had been greatly underestimated
had much to do with keeping sentiment
bullish. Profit-tuking, howeverf by lead
ing holders. Including a big elevator con
cern, did much to undermine confidence.
Then the early complete stoppage of ex
port Inquiries began to attract attention
and during the rest of the day the course
of values was decidedly downhill. Utr
lnan bids at the seaboard were said to be
it cents out of line and only- 2uu,uuu bushels
was reported as having been worked today
for Kurope. besides, to some extent the
edge appeared to have been taken off do
mestic demand for cash wheat here. Al
though choice grades were readily pur
chased, the lower grades wre difficult to
kains in Iowa and Nebraska practically

Oats turned weak when other grain lost

OutMde business dropped off considera
bly snd was a disappointment to those who
were figuring that interest had been re
vived Some further decline may be noted,
hut we believe advantage should be taken
of all breaks for investment purchases.
Corn The market was Quite strong at
the opening due to some unfavorable re
port", and especially on the one from the
weekly wenther bureau of Indiana, stating
that corn was curling and badly In need
The advance -was not maintained, how
ever, on account of the decline in wheat.
Cash prices were nominally 1 to 1 J4 nts
hlEher. export sales were thought to be
large, but amount unknown at this writing.
The majority of the traders appear to
feel that prices will sell lower. V. e think
corn should be bought on the breaks.
Oats Trade was of a negative character
and the market eased off after an early
advance Commission houses were the
principal buvers. which about offset hedg
Tng sales. Both Indiana and low. claim
oats yield and quality very poor A V in
nipeg wire stated that exporters were

the decline has about spent its force.

Wheat Higher prices were reDorted
during the early trading based on export
news and reported buying of futures by
some of the leading exporters. At around
top figures there was considerable liqui
dation of long lines, there was consid
erable hedging by a leading elevator con
cern. Outside markets reported that their ac
ceptances on overnight bid wtre small and
that the country is inclined to sell. Pres
ent cash prices were reported higher both
south and northwest, but Chicago cash
declined with futures.
The principal bearish features were a
report that foreign demand today was
quiet and that a local exporter had bought
