I THE MORXIXG OREGOXIAX, FRIDAY, APREL 2S, 1923 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 aero. 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 authorized. 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. SAILORS MAKE COMmAIXTS I"ood on Steamer Osage Held In sufficient and Poorly Cooked. ABERDEEN.

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 trol. 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 were lost. '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 ater. 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 way. 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. IiUCREXBACH VKSSELS LOAD Company Has Most Steamers in 3ierchants' Exchange Keport.
