Port Authorities Are Enter
tained at Luncheon.
Assistant Manager of Suzuki
. Co., Reveals Desire to
Boost for Harbors.
Aboard the Japanese steamer Port
land Maru yesterday a luncheon was
given by Suzuki & Co., agents for tne
"K" line, for the entertainment o
port officials that they might make
a close Inspection or the vessel as
type of modern freighter and which
is to be continued in the service of
the fleet. The "K" line recently in
augurated a regular schedule between
this city and Japanese ports, and the
first berth steamer was the Tamatsu
Maru. which 's loading the last of
her cargo- for the initial voyage.
T. Ochiai, assistant manager of
Suzuki & Co.'s Portland branch, acted
as host, and guests included John H.
Burgard, chairman, with Ira F. Pow
ers and A. H. Averill of the commis
sion of public docks; Phil Metschan
J. D. Kenworthy and H. A. Sargent
of the Port of Portland commission
H. T. Hudson, traffic manager of the
. bureau maintained by the two com
missions, and Gun C. Moser, of counsel
for the Port of Portland. In view of
the limited din'ng quarters aboard
the vessel arrangements were made
so that other nvembers of the two
bodies will be entertained aboard at
luncheon today.
Guests Are Welcomed.
In welcoming the guests Mr. Ochiai
It is our great pleasure that we
have a steamer in "K" line called
by the same name as this port. Xo
doubt the name of Portland Maru was
given her to celebrate and to assume
herself the same activity and fortune
as this pert is now enjoying. Sug
gested by Mr. Hudson, of the Port of
Portland, :t has been our long de
sire to call our friends of this city
to tho boat to boost for the port as
well as the steamer.
"The Portland Maru arrived several
days ago and I am very much pleased
to have such prominent guests as
are assembled here today on board
the steamer. I think this port may be
called ihe mother of the Portland
Maru and I do hope that all of you
like this steamer so that she may
come back to you as often as possible.
The luncheon we are giving you may
not be as delicious as you have in
your homo, but I hope you take the
lunch with the same feeling as if you
are taking it with your child who
has returned from a long trip all over
the world, it may be better. I thank
Trade Relations Discussed.
Other than the host's remarks, there
was little formality, those present
discussing at length trade conditions
and prospects between the two coun
tries, the size of the "K" line fleet,
said to be one of the largest, if not
the largest, under one flag on the
globe, and what was intended in the
Besides abundant tonnage for gen
eral cargo purposes, as was evidenced
last year, when a total of approxi
mately 70 ships came here from that
fleet, the line has vessels equipped
with passenger accommodations), and
the addition of those carriers may be
among other steps soon to be realized.
The attitude of the "K" line man
agement, it was explained, is to re
gard Portland as its most important
connection on the Pacific side and
New York is so classified on the east
coast. The operation of tramp vessels
to Portland preceded the establish
ment of the regular line and the ex
pansion of the latter is held to depend
solely on trade development.
Dock Commission's Traffic Clerk
Father of Out-Door Baby.
Charles Edwin McCarl. 2 days old,
whose father, M. D. McCarl, is traffic
clerk for the commission of public
docks, came into the world at pre
cisely 2:03 o'clock Sunday morning
out in the cold, with no roof over his
head. He was born in a stretcher at
the portal of the Wilcox Memorial
hospital, as Mrs. McCarl was being
carried from an automobile into the
The family home is at Metzger and
Mrs. McCarl had left there at 1:30
o'clock, the 10 miles being made with
out loss of time.. Information having
been sent in advance, two nurses
were waiting atjthe door.
As the baby was born about mid
way between the automobile and
doorway of the hospital, he is rated
a genuine open-air infant.
Commission Will Modify Tariffs on
Trans-Pacific Cargoes.
For the purpose of passing an or
dinance for an amended tariff of
charges at municipal terminals, the
commission of public docks will hold
a special session at 11:30 o'clock to
day. The most important changes
are those having to do with the ab
sorption of charges on trans-Pacific
freight, transcontinental and that
originating locally.
In addition there will be included
a few new commodity rates, and
changes in regulations governing the
receipt, storage and loading of cargo
at the terminals. The commission
has given considerable attention to
the absorptions, being aided by trans
continental rail lines as to reship
ments and concessions in handling
and wharfage costs on business orig
inating locally for trans-Pacific ship
ment. 3Ietliot Takes. Hanawa.
Captain John D. Methot, skipper of
the steamer Las Vegas, operated by
the Columbia Pacific Shipping com
pany in the Portland-oriental trade,
but ordered out of commission on her

is bringing a fair amount of cargo
for Portland delivery. The Hanawa
has been working lumber at Columbia
City for a few days and returns to
the harbor today to load at terminal
No. 1.
Derrick Raises Boats.
New use has been found for the
powerful "stiff leg" derrick on the
dock of the former Northwest Steel
company, installed during the war for
lifting machinery and heavy loads
aboard new vessels, and that is rais-
ing some of the smaller river vessels
for repairs to propellers and the like.
The tug Cruiser and steamer Hard
tack were lifted Saturday,, both being
raised to permit men working from
a float to unship the propellers and
overhaul stern bearings. .
Vessel Delayed on Puget Sound
Handling Cargo.
After being- detained on Puget
sound in handling cargo, the steamer
City of Rangoon, looked for here
yesterday, is due today and will work
cargo at the North Bank dock from
Europe. Included in her consign
ments are 50,000 firebricks and 200 I
drums of linseed oil. The vessel
takes lumber, canned goods and
wheat at Portland for the return to

Admiral Rodman, Due to Sail
April 19, Will Be Fitted at Se
attle for Alaskan Trade.
With the departure of the steamer
Admiral Rodman from Portland for
San Francisco via Coos and Humboldt
bays April 19, the Admiral line will
withdraw from the service so far as
Portland figures. The steamer de
parts from San Francisco April 26 and
calls in Humboldt and Coos bays, but
continues on to Seattle, there to be
prepared ' to re-enter the Alaskan
Advices respecting the termination
of service yesterday' reached F. N.
Bush,' general agent for the fleet. The
change" leaves the line with the steam
ers Senator and Admiral Evans oper
ating in the Portland-San Francisco-
Los Angeles-San Diego service. Seat
tle advices are to the effect it has
been decided to withdraw the Admiral
Evans and place her in the Alaska
service, the Admiral Farragut Deing
assigned to operate from here with
the Senator.
The Admiral line had the steamer
City of Topeka on the route from
Portland via coast ports to San Fran
cisco until December, 1920, ' and she
was relieved by the steamer Curacao,
which continued on the run until the
Admiral Rodman was assigned Jan
uary IS, 1221. The 14-day schedule
kept the vessel moving and consider
able passenger and cargo business
was handled, but with the necessity
for tonnage to meet the Alaska de
mands, the coming season being ex
pected to draw many travelers north
again, it was decided to give up the
run. As far as through California
business is concerned, the Senator and
Admiral Farragut can care for that,
while other lines from San Francisco
will no doubt continue to serve Eu
reka and Marshfieid, leaving only the
Portland-Coos Bay route without
Termination of Rate War to
Sought; AV. I. Benson of Se
attle to Submit Flans.
Steamship operators of the coast
began to assemble yesterday in readi
ness for a conrerence that opens at
0 o'clock this morning at the Mult
nomah hotel. The meeting has for its
bject the reorganization of the trans-
Pacific conference with the expec
tation of terminating the rate war.
W. D. Benson, vice-president of
Frank Waterhouse & Co., is to be
here from Seattle and as he is cred-
ted with having taken a leading part
arranging the meeting, it is be-
ieved he has formulated plans to stop
ariff slashing which he will place
before the delegates. Captain Rob-
rt Dollar of the Dollar inter-
sts, and Merrill Robinson, man
ager of the, (Kobert Dollar com
pany at Seattle, with Arthur Ca
hill, manager for Sudden & Chris-
enson, wore early arrivals yesterday
nd the California delegation will be
n hand this morning; also others
from Puget sound.
Just how far Portland operators
will go as regards the conference is
a question. The shipping board is not
looked for in the ring at present and
the Columbia-Pacific Shipping com
pany, as he operator of shipping
board tonr.age in the trans-Pacific
trade, may assume the role of a
listener. However, whatever the re
sult, shipping men agree that there
will be various angles discussed, and
it is hoped tik peaceful and early end
will be worked out in the rate dis
Japanese Steamer on First Voyage

On the voyage south she will pass
San Francisco, calling at San Pedro,

When "No" Is Good Sometimes
Isn't It Better At All Times?
A great many people have learned to say No"
to tea or coffee at noon and at night learned it at
the cost of jumping nerves and disturbed digestion.
Thousands of others who passed through
that stage have learned to say "No" to tea and
coffee all the time, and have found a most satis
factory "Yes" in Postum.
Postum's full, rich flavor delights the taste
and meets all the demands for a hot, mealtime
drink, and it contains no element that can harm
anybody. Even little children may share in the
delights of a hot cup of Postum with any meal.
Whether or not the thein in tea or the caffeine
in coffee has begun to serve warnings on you,
you can profit by the experience of others and by
the information which any doctor can give you
and find charm without harm in Postum.
Suppose you make the test for ten days, with
well-made Postum, and compare the "feel" with
your former experience with tea and coffee.
Your grocer sells both forms of Postum: Instant Postum
(in tins) made instantly in the cup by the addition of boil
ing water. Postum Cereal (in packages of larger bulk, for
those who prefer to make the drink while the meal is being
prepared) made by boiling for 20 minutes.
