Ship Board Allots Vessel fo
CRAFT BUILT IN 1921
Two More Carriers to Be Assigned
to Local Firm by Federal
' Assignment of the West O'Rowa,
one of the SSOO-ton eteamers Struth
ers & Barry have operated for the
shipping board in the oriental trade
out of San Francisco, to go on berth
for August loading at Portland as
the first of three carriers the gov
ernment has allocated the Columbia
Pacific Shipping company to aug
ment the four covering the route at
present, was made public yesterday.
As the two remaining ships are
assured and are tentatively carried
in the revised schedule, which pro
vides for two sailings a month, in
stead of the monthly card in effect,
their names may not be made public
for the present. There are nine ship
ping board carriers tied up here now
and one of them, the Montague, was
officially assigned to Struthers &
Barry, while it has been reported the
eteamer Pawlet was to go under
that flag as well.
Steamer In Siew.
The West O'Rowa has completed
her second voyage across the Pa
cific. She is of 3343 tons, net regis
ter, and was built at Los Angeles,
being completed in 1921. She is 410
feet long, ..4.4 fee,t beam and 27.2
feet depth of hold. Her indicated
horsepower is given as 3500' and
when commissioned she rated a crew
of 50, according to the record.
The Hannawa, loading here and
which is to get away about August
6, will have a capacity cargo and the
West O'Rowa will start loading so
as to leave not later than September
1. It was said to have been the in
tention of the shipping board in
providing the additional tonnage, to
place the vessels so they can be
started from this side during the
busiest months, and the latter part
of next month is expected to .wit
ness the beginning of the new sea
West Kent looming.
The steamer West Keats, now in
the orient, will be a September ship
and the West Kader and Eastern
Sailor, also on the other side, will
follow and the ships yet t6 be named
are to be fitted in for October and
November sailings. That there will
be an early move in the reorganiza
tion of the trans-Pacific conference,
which disbanded in the spring when
rate slashing was started, is felt
certain, preliminary to which ses
sions havje been held on Puget
sound. The latest from there is that
lines permanently in the trade are
working out features,' such as the
filing of a good sized bond by each
member, that are calculated to in
duce strict adherence to 'conference
SPEED LIMIT IS PROTESTED
Restrictions on Shipping Board
Craft Declared Prejudicial.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 28 Speed
limits of 17.5 knots an hour, imposed
on United States shipping board
vessels flying the American flag, ,
operate in favor of foreign steam
ship lines, according to a. protest
made today by H. H. Arnold, vice-
president of Anderson, Meyer & Co.,
following the arrival here of the
Pacific Mail liner President Cleve
land from the orient.
Steamship officials here, who sec
end Mr. Arnold's protest, add that
the ruling also discriminates against
the port of San Francisco and in
favor of Seattle, as Seattle, they
said, is a shorter distalhce from the
orient than this port.
The contention is made by Mr.
Arnold that the President Cleveland
would have put into San Francisco
from the orient at 2 o'clock instead
cf ' Thursday had it not been ham
pered by the shipping board speed
limit restriction. Mr. Arnold added
that the craft carried a cargo valued
at $6,000,000 and the interest
amounts to J1000 a day, and there
fore the shipping board restriction
was responsible for the loss of that
pmount in the case cited.
CONFERENCE KATE IGNORED
Operators Said to Have Slashed
TACOMA, Wash.i July 28. (Spe
cial.) While the Atlantic confer
ence is still quoting freight rates to
Pacific coast points, steamship oper
ators are apparently of the belief
that the conference is dead, accord
ing to freight quotations made and
reported by Pacific coast shipping
men. Rates have been cut down
until they bear little semblance to
It is the opinion of Tacoma ship
ping men jn close touch with the
Bituatfon that the rates quoted by
the Atlantic conference are about 25
per cent above what ships are tak
ing cargo from east to west coasts.
-As an instance, steel is said to have
gone from 60 cents per hundred to
30 cents, while doors have been cut
from 70 cents to 56 cents per hun
It is said a shipper will get a
rate from one line and then try out
the opposition until something sat
isfactory is obtained and the low
bidder gets the business.
Just when rates will be readjust
ed is a question shipping men are
not- prepared to answer. It may
not be before the shipping board or
some other body arranges rates that
are satisfactory, they say.
' RIVER BOAT BEING ALTERED
Steamer Iralda Undergoing Some
' Changes for The Dalles Run.
Preparatory to regular service on
the Portland-The Dalles route, the
propeller steamer Iralda, of the Har
kins line, is being overhauled and
when commisioned next week "will
be somewhat altered in appearance
so far as the house is concerned.
More sleeping quarters have been
added above and the Dassasrewav
around the lower cabin has given
place to one extending fore and aft
in the center of the vessel. The
rearrangement of the cabin is ex
pected to provide room for about
ten additional passengers.
The plan is to operate the Iralda
opposite the steamer Madeline on
the middle river, and Captain L.'P.
Hosford, manager of the line, said
;. yesterday she may be ready for the
first up trip Wednesday. Reports
from the upper river country are
that considerable fruit will be as
sembled for shipment here via the
water line this season, and with
two steamers . affording a daily
schedule considerable business is
expected to be developed..
XEW TERMINAL UNIT READY
Steamer Beal to Be First to Make
Use of Berth.
To the eteamer Thomas P. Beal,
due 'tomorrow from Boston and
ether north Atlantic ports with
about 500 tons of cargo consigned
to Sudden & Christenson, will be ac
corded the distinction of being? the
first deepwater vessel to berth at
the new unit of terminal No. 1 to
discharge and loaa ireight. She is
sailing in the Crowell & Thurlow
service, represented on the coast by
Sudden & Christenson, for whom
F. N. Bush is Portland manager.
While the Beal is made fast there
the oriental liner Hannawa will be
in the slip, the steamer Knoxville
City of the Isthmian fleet at the
north berth on the river side of the
original terminal unit and the
steamer Katrina Luckenbach at the
south berth. There is room at the
new unit for two ships, one in the
slip and tle other along, the face
of the dock. While some work re
mains to be done, the addition is
BIG OIL CARGO IS COMING
12 00 Barrels Due in August ou
What was tsaid to be the largest
lot of vegetAle oil routed for de
livery in the storage tanks at ter
minal No. 4 is one of 1200 barrels
aboard the Dutch steamer Simaloer,
due early in August from Batavia,
in the service of the Java Pacifio
line. Since the erection of the
tanks considerable oil has been re
ceived and sent east, but in smaller
Another shipment the commission
of public docks was advised of yes
terday was between 2000 and 3000
tons of sulphur from Galveston,
which is to be loaded aboard the
steamer Mundelta the second week
in August, and is expected here
early in September. The ship will
have as well 150 tons' of commer
cial flour sulphur and 150 tons of
inoculated sulphur. She is in the
service of the Texas Gulf Sulphur
company and will load back wito
lumber for the east coast.
LUMBERMEN WANT VESSEL
Steamship Line Asked to Send
West Prospect Here.
Lumber interests desirous of de
livering material at New York and
Philadelphia as soon as possible
have importuned the Atlantic, Gulf
& Pacific line to have the steamer
West Prospect, recently purchased
from the shipping board and which
has been delivered at San Francisco,
come north and take on part of tne
lumber that can be contracted. The
request was made to H. T. Anning,
Portland agent, and in turn referred
by him to headquarters, 'but no de
cision is known to have been
It was estimated that at least
3,500,000 feet could be booked for
the shij), which would leave 2000
tons of space for San Francisco
cargo already contracted for. East
bound vessels of the intercoastal
lines are heavily booked for the
next few voyages and lumber space
is reported at a premium.
TACOMA MATERLAL IS SOLD
Several Boilers Yet to Be Disposed
of by Ship Board.
TACOMA, Wash", July 28. (Spe
cial.) With a rush the auction sale
of shipping board material held' in
the salvage depot at Tacoma was
closed late last night. No reports
are given out on the total of the
sales by those having the matter in
charge and probably no amounts j
given until eastern officials have
passed upon them.
Nearly all the supplies here were
disposed of. A number of boilers
are yet to be sold but indications
are that -this material will be lumped
in the Alameda base sale to be held
August 8. The sale is said To have
been very satisfactory from . the
points of bidding. It is estimated
there was 100 active bidders on the
500 lots offered, for sale and those
interested put up an active demand
for their purchases. '
OIL TANKER RUNS AGROUND
La Purisima Gets Out of Channel
in Willamette River.
Entering the Willamette river
shortly after midnight yesterday
morning the tank steamer La Pu
risima of the Union Oil company's
fleet swung out of the channel
toward the beach on the east bank
and grounded. The Port of Portland
dredge Tualatin, which was oper
ating near the scene, was shifted
alongside the vessel to remove ma
terial bo that she could be floated.
It was' said that the man at the
wheel swung the helm in the-oppo-site
direction from that ordered. .
The vessel had not been freed at
a late hour last night. . She was
drawing 21 feet of water forward
and the depth in the' river is 30 feet
and the channel width in excess of
LOG RAFT SOLD BY LOTTERY
Bidding So Spirited Because of
Shortage That Plan Is Adopted
ABERDEEN, ' Wash.i July 28.
(Special.) The first raft of Quilay-
ute timber ever ehipped nere to sup
ply harbor mills was sold early to
day to the Wilson Brothers Mill
company, officials of the mill draw
ing a slip of paper bearing tne name
of the firm from a ?hat jlled ' with
slips bearing names of rival bidders.
Because an acute shortage of logs
is being experienced . here, bidding
for the raft became so spirited that
sale by . lot proved the only prac
ticable procedure. Success of bring
ing the Davis log raft from the
Quillayute to Grays Harbor, July
25,-has opened a field'Of wide pos
sibilities to the future of the log
ging industry in this section.
Collision Probe Begun. '
SEATTLE," Wash., July 28. In
vestigation was begun today by the
local board of the United- States
Steamship Inspection Service of the
collision off West Point yesterday
between the Japanese freighter Ha
waii Maru and the Puget sound
passenger steamer Calista, resulting
in the sinking of the latter. A num
ber of the Calista's passengers' and
.members of the crews of both ves
sels' were examined today. No lives
were lost in the accident.
Japanese Steamer Shifted.
The new Japanese steamer Ibuki
san Maru, here on her first voyage,
moved from terminal No. 4 to In-man-Poulsen's
mill yesterday to
take aboard 1,500,000 feet of lumber
for Japan, while she worked an
other parcel at Columbia City. She
proceeded to Tacoma-first and took
on lumber there, mostly ';- flitches.
while she has 2,240,000 pounds of
copper and a large shipment of zinc,
which ia destined for Tientsin, v
COAST RATES ADJUSTED
STEAM SCHOONER . TARIFFS
WILL BE REVISED. V
Discrimination Against Vessels
Taking Passengers and Cargo
Will Be Minimized.
Shipping men representing' -Iines
in . the Portland-California trade
have reached an understanding as
to rate differentials on cargo han
dled by steam schooners as against
that moved on the combined pas
senger and freight carriers, and it
is said a 90-day agreement has been
entered into during which time it
is' hoped to give Ahe new arrange
ment a thorough trial.
The matter was the subject of a
conference held at Seattle, which
was attended by J. C. Strittmatter
of San Francisco, in charge of traf
fic for the McCormick. line; Hellman
Lueddeman, Portland agent for that
Fleet; F. Schafer' of San Francisco,
manager of the San Francisco &
Portland Steamship company; A. O.
Kelling, Union Pacific, of Portland
and R. J. Ringwood, freight traffic
manager of the Pacific Steamship
It has been said the differential
between the tariff of the two classes
of ships on certain commodities qf-
fered an advantage to the steam
schooners and motorships engaged
exclusively in the freight trade and
in order that competition be on a
more satisfactory basis with all, the
margin was lessened.
Mr. Lueddeman said yesterday the
gathering adjourned with the best
of feeling and no doubt a better un
derstanding of the difficulties of
both fleets in taking care of the
business of the port."

other conditions, was taken around the
