HARBDR LINE CHANGE
AND FILL DISCUSSED
Mocks Bottom Property Own
' ers at Meeting.
NEW PLAN PRESENTED
Port CommlssloA Takes Tp Con'
sideration of Channel Project
as Affecting Land.
A plan to extend the harbor line
In front of Mocks- bottom approxi
mately to conform to a lino drawn
from the plant of the Portland Flour
ing Mills company to the shore at
uoiumDia university, nuing cenuiu mc
line with material dredged from Swan
island proper, which would require
the removal of a major portion or the
island, was considered at the joint
meeting yesterday of property own
ers of Mocks bottom and the Port
of Portland commission.
The session was attended by the
property owners with a view to dis
cussing a fill on Mock's Bottom with
out respect to a change in the harbor
line. During the discussion, it was
brought out that there was likelihood
of the east channel being closed at the
upper end, leaving- the present chan
nel as a basin to be entered by ves
sels from the lower end of the island.
That prompted an agreem?nt that the
possibility of removing the west side
of the island and filling the east
channel as well as the bottomland be
gone into from a practical standpoint.
Committee Is Named.
Pilchard Wilder, representing the
Russell estate, and Percy H. Blyth;
O. I Price, executor of the Pittock
estate; I J. Werschkul of the Port
land Flouring Mills company, and I
1a. Levings of the Portland Gas & Coke
company, were named a committee to
represent the property owners in going
into the details with the port com
mission. The port is dealing with property
owners on the west side of the island,
embracing the Guild's lake zone, for a
fill with material to be taken from
the west channel, which is How being
dug and the dredgings deposited on
the new railroad terminal site. It
wa-s the aim to ascertain if those in
Mocks bottom would enter into an
arrangement for a fill as well. That
point may be gone into more thor
oughly in the event the plan involv
ing the removal of much of the island
is not favored.
Tne east portion of the island In
side the tentative line would serve as
a substantial bulkhead, it was pointed
out, while at the lower end a dike
could be built to connect with the
shore. In gaining the new land the
property owners would also have th
advantage of a straight harbor line
with abundant deep channel area in
iront. Ihe present east channel, be
ins in a bend, is bothersome in han
dling deep water vessels when two
pass there and is held of insufficient
width for the utilization of the Mocks
bottom property to the best advantage
for docks. To fill Slocks bottom alone,
where there are close to 400 acres.
It is estimated that 18.000,000 cubic
yards of material would be needed so
as to gain a level of 35 feet above
There was much discussion of the
probable expense of digging away
part of the island and that will figure
in the final determination of the
proposal. The ability of the port com
mission to establish improvement dis
tricts and to take care of financing
so property owners would have 20
years in which to meet the cost also
was gone into.
Other- Matters Token t'p.
Other matters taken up included
placing of insurance on the drydock
originally built by the port. A $100,
t)00 policy for marine and liability
covering was decided on.
Conliacts with the Coast Culvert
and Fi'ime company and King Broth
ers Boiler Works for the construction
of 4000 feet of discharge pipe line for
dredges and with the Smith & Watson
Iron Works for that part of the pipe
within the hold of the dredge, were
The commission agreed to join with
the government engineers in a uni
form wage scale for dredger crews,
effective June 1. It is said to be the
coast scale with only minor changes.
It was determined as well to place
drydock mechanics of all classes, ma
chinist, ship carpenters and caulkers
on the same scale, 72 cents an hour..
BmiGE SIGNAL HEARING t'P
Chans: in Draw Signal for Two
Draws Is Proposed.
At trie instance of the Spokane,
Portland & Seattle railroad a hear
ing of navigation interests has been
called for May 8 by the Corps of
Knjrineers. I. S. A., for consideration
of a rescinding? draw signal for the
bridge maintained by the railroad at
St. Johns. The same signal is used
for the Broadway bridge.
At other bridges the signals for
opening: are such that when a vessel
whistles for the draw and for some
reason It is decided not to pass
through, the sipnal is reversed. At
the Spokane, Portland & Seattle and
Broadway bridpes the signal is a
loiiR-, short and long- whistle, and it
is to decide on how a reverse signal
shall be sounded that the public hear
ing was arranged. Written testimony
was requested as a means of insur
ing a correct record, while oral sug
gestions are to be listened to as
well. The gathering will be at the
office of the second Portland dis
trict, custom house building.

IiAID TO FOG.
Eastern Sailor Undergoing Repairs
and Will Resume Journey; Ram
ming Crashes lu Bow.
OREGON CITY, Or., April 27. (Spe
cial.) How the Eastern Sailor rammed
and sunk the Sakaki Maru, and the
story of the explosion which killed
four and injured nearly a score
others, is told by Orean Moore of Ore
eon City, second engineer on the Co
lumbia-Pacific steamer, in a letter
from Shanghai to his brother, Byron,
of this city.
"We were coming: up the river to
ward Shanghai on the morning of
March 22," he wrote. "The weatner
was quite foggy and we had several
narrow escapes from hitting some big
Chinese junks so the pilot anchored
till the fog lifted and then we pro
ceeded on up the river. It seemed the
stream was full of junks that morning
and we were having an awful time.
'We swung away around one ana
were way over on our side or tne
channel when Sakaki Maru hove in
sight. We signaled to pass on the
port side. A junk being in her way,
she signaled to pass on the starboard.
We saw we could not do it and we
answered back to go to port. She
wnistled again to go to starboard so
we whistled three times, meaning we
were going astern ship out of con
The Sakaki Maru was going at a
good clip and kept right on coming
and when she crossed our bow we
smashed her a good one amidships.
It caved in her side and crashed in our
bow so we are three feet shorter than
we were. She sank in only five min
utes, her engine room, fire room and
forward hold filled with water. The
river where we hit is shallow, so she
did not have far to sink and no Uvea
'We are now in drydock getting
fixed up at a cost of $25,000. We are
getting 20 new plates and a new bow-
stem and will be ready to sail the
15th for Taku Bar, Dairen and home.
We also had a bad explosion five
days ago when a bunch of gas formed
in the forepeak tank and was set on
fire by a burner who was burning
some rivets. There were 16 men work
ing in there at the time. The first
man got halfway out of the hole and
they were all grabbing hold of him so
neither he nor anyone else could get
out. The heat and smoke soon put
them all to sleep and we went below,
putting wet cloths over our mouths
and noses. We tied a rope around the
first man and pulled him up. The
black smoke was eo thick that we
could not see. The fire department
arrived at that time and the men put
on gas masks and went way down.
They tied "ropes onto them and we
pulled them out one at a time.
I never saw any men so burned in
all my life. Only one was dead when
we got them alt out, but three died
Mr. Moore was making his fourth
trip on the Eastern Sailor, which
touched at Vladivostok, Shanghai,
Hongkong and Dairen. The steamer
cleared from Portland, February 14
PORT MOORAGE IS OBTAINED
Commission's River Fleet to Tie
Up Below Bridges.
Vessels of the Port of Portland com
mission's river fleet are to have moor-
ngs on the west side, just below the
Harrirnan bridge, a lease having been
entered into with the O.-W. R. & N.
company for 318 feet of water front
age at a nominal monthly rental. It
s proposed to have the towboat Port
land and other steamers moor there
when in the harbor for supplies or
awaiting orders from the city office.
At present the port fleet calls at
terminal No. 1 for supplies and orders,
such as with respect to shifting ves
sels, moving dredges and the like. A
storeroom is maintained on the lower
dock and fixed hours morning and
afternoon maintained for receiving
stores and equipment purchases. In
arranging the new moorings, it is in
tended to drive dolphins for holding
vessels inside ot which will be a float
connected with the shore by a gang
A small building is to be provided
on Front street, in the rear of the
property, for the receipt of deliveries,
whence they can be trucked to the
steamers. The moorage being below
bridges, it is expected that the steam
er Portland will be able to expedite
her movements in many instances.
Bridge delays at all seasons will be
saved to the dredge tenders and others
of the fleet.
