CEREAL GUT ACCEPTABLE
REDUCTION FROM $6 TO $5
Shipping Board Action Taken as
Indorsement of Attitude of Op
erators in Opposing Boost.
Reduction of the trans-Pacific
cereal rata from (6 to $5 a ton, ef
fective immediately, . on shipping
board vessels and privately con
trolled ships, was accepted in ship
ping circles yesterday as indorse
ment of the attitude of certain
steamship operators at the time the
rate waa raised from $4 to $3 a
ton that the increase was excessive
in view of the condition of the
oriental cereal market. It was
understood that the matter had
been taken up with the shipping
board with the suggestion that the
$5 rate, which had been fixed for
October bookings, be made the groins;
The advance was recorded early
in August. The $4 freight was in
effect, but the movement of cargo
exhibited a healthier aspect, so
space for early . loading was in
greater demand, it betag reported
that premiums were being paid in
some instances, $4.50 being men
tioned as having been paid for cer
tain bookings. About that time the
shipping board fixed a rate of $5 for
October, and shortly afterward the
$6 charge was ordered placed in
force for August and September
However, space on Portland ves
sels of the shipping board fleet had
been largely taken and with the
expectation that the $6 freight
might be shaded on the representa
tion of operators virtually no- book
ing was done here at the top-notch,
figure. The $5 rate applies from
Puget sound cities as well as from
Portland and is said to be generally
acceptable to all lines that have
been represented in recent sessions ;
having for their object the reforma
tion of the trans-Pacific conference,
which was disorganized as a conse
quence of the cutting of rates in the
DREDGE LEAVES FOR KELSO
Tualatin to Pump Material for
Fill at Long-Bell Site.
To start one of the largest single
dredging projects undertaken in the
district, the Port of Portland dredge
Tualatin left last night for Kelso
in tow of the steamer Portland and
today will probably pump the first
material for a fill and dike tasK at
th scene f the -Long-Bell Lumber
company's new plant and towusite.
It is estimated that between 10,
000,000 and 12,000,000 yards of ma
terial wiU be handled there and at
the peak of the work from two to
three of the port dredges, as well
as private equipment, will perhaps
be engaged. .
In obtaining the material, cnannei
requirements in the vicinity will be
taken into consideration as much ai
possible. It is hoped not to handle
material with the Tualatin for a
greater distance than 3000 yards.
Trestle work ashore in preparation
for the fill has been completed. J.
H. Polhemus, general manager of
the Port of Portland, will be on the
ground today while the early work
Is gotten under way. The dredging
was arranged with the port as
eauloment was available, since the
channel dredging programme has
reached a stage that would nave
meant part of the fleet being or
dered out of commission had not the
Kelso job been accepted.
COMBINATION SHIPS AWAITED
Consideration of Application for
Assignment Creates Interest.
That serious consideration is being
accorded application of leading ship
ping interests for the assignment of
three combination passenger and
freight steamers for the Portland
Oriental service, is daily impressing
those who had to do with initiating
the movement. The fact an early
decision in the matter has not been
announced is accepted in some quar
ters as evidence that the proposal
is being studied by the shipping
board on its merits.
In support of local attitude, re
minders are cited of the opportunity
afforded Commissioners Chamber
lain. Benson and Lissner on the oc
casion of a public shipping board
hearing in July, relative to section
28, of the merchant marine act, to
make a close study of Portland's
commerce, her advantage in many
respects over other harbors and the
promises for successful operation of
combination transocean vessels irom
BALTIMORE ROUTE FAVORED
Cargo Shippers Advised of Lower
Rail Rate in Territory.
Bearing on reported congested con
ditions at Philadelphia, attributed to
railroad strike developments, American-Hawaiian
through the Columbia-Pacific Ship
ping company, has issued a circular
directing the attention of Oresn
shippers to a difference of one cent
in rail rates in the territory west
of Philadelphia and Baltimore in
favor of the latter port and sug
gesting that consignments be routed
via Baltimore for the present. It
is said that besides lower rates the
Baltimore gateway lowers relief in
the way of railroad and water fa
As to the time in transit it is be
lieved routing via Baltimore will
not cause delays, but that It will
make it possible to clear up freight
accumulated at Philadelphia since
railroad labor difficulties arose.
JAPANESE CARRIER BOOKED
Horaisan Maru Reported Taken
for Oriential Loading.
The Japanese steamer Horaisan
Maru is the latest carrier reported
for oriental loading among berth
ships. The Kongasan Maru, of-ihe
Mitsui line, was cleared yesterday

for Japan, valued at $39,667: 5000
barrels of flour for Shanghai, at
$25,000, and 25,500 barrels for Dairen,
valued at $92,600. At Columbia City
1,200,000 feet of lumber for Shanghai
Is to be loaded and as the ship has
inward cargo for Seattle, she will
proceed for the other side via the
Buoy to Be Relighted.
Information that the light of the

TO MEET OBJECTION'S.
Council Takes Trip to Mill Site
and Agreement Is Reached for
Members of the city council Jour
neyed to East Fiftieth and Powell
Valley road yesterday and settled a
controversy that has been raging
for a' week or more concerning the
construction of a apur track into a
mill Kcated at the. corner.
Property owners, or at least the
majority of them, opposed the con
struction of a spur track from Thirty-
fourth avenue southeast, entering
the mill from the south, on the
ground that it would be In the front
of the residential property in that
The millownefs were willing: to
have the spur, track located any
where that did not cost more money
than the investment would warrant.
The least cost wasi attached to con
struction of the spur from the south.
Oity officials did not favor the en
tranC3 of the spur from the north on
the ground tlt it would interfere
with traffic coming; into East Fif
tieth ctreet from both Powell Valley
road and Foster road.
So with the city engineer the
council traveled to the site of the
mill and after viewing- the property
a settlement satisfactory to ail con
cerned was reached when City En
gineer Iaurgaard worked out a new
route which will bring the spur
along Eat Fiftieth etreet to the
center of the building and thence
into the mill.
