HOLD BIG MEETING
Conditions in Harbor Found
Better Than Believed. .
LONGSHORE COST TARGET
Speakers Seem to Think Toivajf
and Pilot Service on River Is
BY "W. E. MAHOXET.
Men representing interests most
concerned with Portland's maritime
affairs gathered In th green room
of the Chamber of Commerce yester
day to consider matters bearing on
the dispatch and economical hanolin
of the shipping service. The day was
given to discussion of conditions that
were held to be an influence on busi
ness with competitive ports. At th
conclusion It was thought by man
that while results will no doubt be
attained as a result of fhe session
the harbor was far from burdened
The meeting was called by the Port
of Portland commission as a mean
ot permitting a general 'show down
of complaints and objections. A sten
ographic report- was ordered made of
the entire proceedings and the port
members will endeavor to digest that
and -perhaps make recommendations.
on other than stevedoring features,
-which occupied much of the afternoon
discussion, there was a feeling that
the entire situation was subject to
but little change.
Dock Trucking: Favored.
It-would appear from testimony of
rered that the preponderance of opin
ion was that the towage, and pilotage
service was given a clearance; that
costs of ship lining, or dunnage, was
influenced by the cost of lumber, with
apparently more care insisted on in
preparing for the stowage of cargo
than at some other ports; that Steve
doring costs as to grain, flour and
other commodities handled over pub
lie and private docks could be les
sened by an arrangement whereby
delivery would be made at ship tackle,
so docks would do all trucking at
lower wages with their own men, in
stead of by longshoremen, as at
The longshoremen came in for a
share of criticism as to efficiency,
union rules governing overtime and
the like. Strong argument also was
advanced to the effect that closed
shop conditions were chargeable with
the burden of alleged higher costs on
cargo handling when compared with
Fuget sound. Added to that was talk
of the presence of wobblies among
longshoremen on the extra list and
that I. W". "IV. organizers had been ac
tive with some of them, though credit
was given the union for having many
desirable workers included in its
Hired Toeboit Suggested.
At the morning session K. D. Daw
son of the Columbia Pacific pointed
out that, while there had been criti
cism of charges made by the Port of
Portland for the towboat Portland
move costing $85, he had investigated
conditions at San Francisco and on
Fuset sound with reference- to the
same service and found charges about
Jij. He suggested the port might
subsidize some towboat to act in
conjunction with the Portland when
it was necessary to use two towboats
or on occasions when the Portland
"was busy and there was immediate
need of another towboat to move a
"We have not been subjected to any
delay with our vesseis at the mouth
of the Columbia because of the pilots,
but rather have been delayed at Port
land in shifting the steamers because
of the tow boJt situation," said Mr.
I.'awson in answer to a question of
Frank M. "Warren, president of the
Port of Portland. "Perhaps we make
more moves with our vessels than
some other operators as it is our pol
icy to make Portland our home port
in reality, all repiars and other work
for the upkeep of the fleet being at
tended! to here."
Sir. Dawson added that he had no
complaint to make of river pilotage
I ried on at Astoria or at Port Town
send; erection of a sh2?leg gear at
one of the terminals for lifting un
usually heavy cargo, and the con
struction of a derrick barge with a
lifting capacity of 40 to 50 tons, also
were proposed.' He suggested that
the waterfront fire protection system
be investigated and the wisdom of
shifting ne of the fireboats consid
ered, so as to protect maritime risks
better; that the pass system be es
tablished on all docks, so the move
ment of all persons and rigs could be
checked, and perhaps a halt placed on
the pilfering of cargo. He also pro
posed the improvement of North
Front street from the Harrlman
br'dge to terminal No. 1, and im
proved switching facilities at ter
minal No. 4, even to the extent of
providing a second switch engine.
Portland Charges Called High.
A. C Callan, agent for the "Williams
line, said his information was the
towage charges at San Francisco and
cn Puget Sound, as indicated by pub
lished tariffs from those places, were
less than at Portland. In taking up
stevedoring matters he said the
steamer Willsolo was detained Mon
day night by the refusal of longshore
men to work after 6 o'clock, asserting
that they would be subject to a fine
by the union for making it a continu
ous shift, though less than mne tons
of cargo remained to be discharged.
As a consequence, said Mr. Callan, the
ahip carried the cargo to Astoria,
where it was discharged yesterday,
and would be sent back to Portland
by rail, so there would be the addi
tional cost of the local freight from
there to shoulder.
As to pilotage, he said he felt the
pilots were worthy of their hire; yet
that there should be an absorption of
part of the pilotage cost. He said
the average cost for piloting one of
the "Williams line in the river was
JS.iO, and that a' Luckenbach liner's
pilotage would reach an average of
J450, while on Puget sound the pilot
age -was about $100 on a vessel. A
boatage charge of $7.50 in effect at
Astoria for taking a pilot from a ship
or putting one aboard was objected
to as an expense not assessed else
where. Delay Declared Considerable.
As to delays because of pilots, he
told that there had been times when
pilots at the entrance said conditions
outside were so rough that if a ship
was taken to sea they would be un
able to get off to the tug so as to
return inside. He suggested the pilots
be placed under the supervision of
the Port of Portland and that a meth
od be worked out to effect some ab
sorption. Referring to towage matters again,
he said an ordinary, shift in the har
bor that cost $75, was charged for a
the rate of $35 at competitive ports;
that for stevedoring lumber a rate of
$2 a thousand feet applied here, with
$2.25 taxed against Japanese squares,
while at Seattle it was $7.70 a thou
sand and $1.80 at Tacoma. Trucking
on docks, and charges for entering
and clearing vessels, also came in for
similar comparison on the part of
Mr. Callan, and in the way of sugges
tions ha offered a proposal that all
offshore business be handled at Ter
minal No. 4.
Changes Are Proposed.
That Cock operation details.be seg
regated from construction responsi
bilities; portable telephones be placed
aboard ships at terminals free, and
establishment of a radio station at
the foot of Stark street or at some
other point in the harbor so ships
could be reached by radio services
while in port were other suggestions
h.a made. Installation of a modern
fumigation plant here to avoid the
Closed Shop Factor.
Accounting for added costs in some
respects on the waterfront as had
been recited by him, Mr. Callan said I Pny
that they could be attributed to an
ej.tent to the fact a closed-shop con
dition existed, whereas Astoria and
all other ports on the coast, save
Vancouver, B. C, were open-shop cen
To "clarify the atmosphere" as re
gards the launch charge for handling
pilots to and from vessels at As
toria, Captain A. R. Pearson of the
Columbia river pilots, said none of
the pilots had stock in the launches
used for that purpose. Another item
of $7.50 for docking vessels, he said.
was not charged to coastwise and in-
tercoastal ships, but only against for
eign carriers and such of the Ameri
can fieet as are engaged in the off
shore trade, they being under reg
Pnsft Sound Charges Up.
J. W. Crichton of the division of
operation of the shipping board pro
duced telegrams from Seattle and San
Francisco covering towage charges,
showing on Puget sound towage is
performed on a basis of the gross ton
nage of the vessel, so ranged from
$129.46 on those from 6000 to 6000
tons to $180.90 for those from 7000 to
8000 tons, and that the rate did not
include piloting. At San Francisco,
he recited, a steamer of 8800 tons,
deadweight, paid for a flat tow $215,
with $35 more for a tug to assist, the
move being along the city front, while
for a tow up to 35 miles $325 was
charged, and $75 additional for' a tug
Captain McLean, master of the
steamer F. J. Luckenbach. said he
thought "an excellent lot of men were
engaged in river piloting and that the
service was of the best; that he had
piloted on tha Atlantic side, and his
license was indorsed for Porto Rico
as well as California ports, and in all
of his piloting and shipmaster's ex
perience he had not seen a better
lot of men than were engaged in
Westport Service Target.
J. G. Euson, agent for the Lucken
bach interests, said the towboat serv
ice offered steamers loading at West
port was not always satisfactory, and
he cited a recent case in which, he
said, an outside steamer charged $200
for going there to assist a Lucken
bach carrier, yet actually did not get
a line aboard; that the vessel was
backed out of her berth into the Co
lumbia by means of her own power.
He said he thought Portland and As
toria should get together and arrange
tor a towboat service as far as West-
port was concerned, probably Astoria
taking care of the work.
J. E. Harvey of the Oregon-Pacific
nterests introduced himself by say
ng that after 14 years' experience
in the operating end of shipping he
had no complaint to offer of the
pilotage on the river or at the en
trance. He said pilots had always
given splendid service. He added he
did not think the charges exorbitant,
and that conditions were different on
Puget sound, the ordinary pilotage
there being for a distance of 35 miles.

Towboat Service Good.
Touching on the towboat situa
tion, he characterized it as satisfac
tory and that in view of the type of
towboat maintained and the service
given he held the tariff to be reason
able. He said, however, that in the
case of handling vessels in and out
of Westport the most desirable ar
rangement would no doubt be to have
the port of Asotria look after them.
"We hear considerable about charges
for piloting, but nothing about times
when these pilots get out in the mid
dle of the night or early in the morn-
ng just to shit a vessel in the har
bor, hiring taxis to get to the ter
minals promptly, for which they make
no charge, and other valuable assist
ance lent by these men," he added.
E. E. Johnson, agent for the Gen
ral Steamship corporation, in turn-
ng to stevedoring details, said men
engaged as longshoremen at Portland
did not "turn to" .with the same
mental attitude toward their work as
id those of the lower river region.
He also took up lining holds for the
reception of cereal cargo; how, since
rates declined, owners criticised for
cost of lining and the exactions of
insurance requirements as followed
Ship's Condition Criticised.
William C. McNaught, surveyor for
the San Francisco board of marine
underwriters, directed attention to
the use of dunnage on ships these
days, not lining, and said French
ships that had been handled by Mr.
ohnson s line offered holds for cereal
shipments that were in such condition
respecting tallow and other cargo
stowed that it was necessary to have
onsiderable time and expense clean-
ng the space for the safe transporta
tion of grain and flour. He said that
efore coming to the meeting he in-
pected the hold of a ship in which
four to five inches of fuel oil floated
n tank tops so that dunnage had to
be used to protect cargo from the oil.
James H. Polhemus, general man
ager of the Port of Portland, spoke
rom data prepared to show that the
towboat Portland was used only about
10 per cent of the time in shifting

he had experienced in her career rep
resented only 16 per cent of her time.
et she carried a double crew and was
available for any time during each
1921 Cost H52.0O0. .
The cost to operate her in 1921, he
said, was $52,000, not allowing for
overhead, depreciation, repairs, sink-
ng fund for accidents and such items.
n addition, he continued, $20,000 had
been paid for outs'de towboats ag
isting in moves, or roughly a total
f. $72,000, whereas receipts were $7t,-
000. Her original cost was placed at
150.000, and he suggested that if op-
rators could assist in using the
steamer more the loss would be low-
red by the additional revenue. Of
5000 as the monthly cost of operating
bar tug, he said approximately $1000
was paid monthly by entrance pilots

I'MPQCA FOLK DISAPPOINTED
Failure to Get- Federal Appropria
tion Stops Work on Jetty.
- MARSHFIELD, Or.. March 14.
(Special.) Disappointment is keen
at points on true lower Umpqua river
over failure to have Included in the
national rivers ajid haxbors bill an
appropriation for jetty work at the
mouth of the rivser. The Port of
Umpqua commissiotners have there
fore invited the citizens of the port
to a public mass meeting at 10 o'clock
March 21 when, policies for 1922 will
be argued and decided upon.
The port had proceeded with ex
pensive jetty work on its own initia
tive, under the imp-cession" that the
government, as in the- case with some
other small ports, would provide a
60-50 appropriation. The funds of
the port gave out and the jetty is
far, from finished. .However the
Umpqua bar has a depth of water
that easily admits craat that will
carry close to 1,000,000 feet of lum
ber, but the people feax the condi
tion will not continue unless the pro
posed jetty is completed. Recently
the tug Samson and the barges she
tows for the Winchester Bay Lum
ber company have sought refuge In
Coos bay, on two different, occasions,
because of the roughness of the
Umpqua bar which, as the tport com
missioners and others believe, would
not trouble if the jetties were finished.

Move Child's Bowels with
"California Fig Syrup"
Even a sick child lovea the "fruity"
taste of "California Fig Syrup." If
the little tongue la coated, or if your
child is listless, cross, feverish, full
of cold, or has colic, a teaspoonful
will never fail to open the bowels. In
a few hours you can see for yourself
how thoroughly it works all the con
stipation poison, sour bile and waste
from the tender, little bowels and
gives you a. well, playful child again.
Millions of mothers keep "Califor

teaspoonful today saves a sioic child
tomorrow. Ask your druggist for
genuine "California Fig Syrup," which
has directions for babies and children
of all ages printed on bottle. Jlotaerl

If you want to keep your child's
hair In good condition, be cartful
what you wash-it with.
Most soaps and prepared sham
poos contain too much alkali. This
dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle,,
and is very harmful. Mulslfied co
coanut oil shampoo (which is pure
and entirely greastless), is much bet
ter than anything else you can uss
for shampooing, as this can't possibly
injure the hair.
Simply put two or threa teaspoon
fuls of Mulslfied In a cup or glnss
with a little warm water, then mois
ten the hair with water and rub it in.
It will make an abundance of rich,
creamy lather, and cleanse the hair
and scalp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easily, and removes every
particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and
excess oil. The hair dries quickly
and evenly, and It leaves It fine and
silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man
age. You can get Mulslfied cocoanut oil
shampoo at any drug store. It Is
very cheap, and a few ounces Is
enough to last everyone in the family
for months. Be ure your druggist
gives you Mulslfied. Adv.
