GET Gil TRAFFIC
Arrangements Made for
, Coming Year's Needs.
RATE TO PORTLAND CUT
This Port Now on Sarnie Basis as
Others oi Coast on Business
Gunnies from India for next sea
son's requirements in the west are
to move on American- ships from
Calcutta to Hongkong and there be
forwarded via American lines to
the Pacific coast, the business being
divided among the established serv
ices to the principal ports. Port
land's portion will be moved on ves
sels of the Columbia-Pacific Ship
ping company and it is estimated
the amount to be received through
this harbor will reach close to 20,000
The transportation of the gunny-
business has been arranged by con
tract. The Pacific Mail fleet and
that of Struthers Sc. Barry will han
dle gunnies to Los Angeles and San
Franoisco and the Admiral line the
shipments destined for Puget sound
ports. The basis of the contract is
a rate of J6.50 a ton from Calcutta.
The shipment of gunnies to Port
land has not always been handled
direct and at the opening of the
present season, whilt there was
rate of $6.60 to other Pacific coa:t
ports, that to Portland was 1, as a
consequence af which bags were
consigned via Tacoma and reshipped
by railroad to Portland at less than
the through freight to Portland.
The Injustice of that differential
was taken up by the Columbia-Pa
cific Shipping company with its
Hongkong representative, with the
result that the same charge was
made applicable to Portland's gunny
However, the elimination of the
differential-was brought about after
much of the bag movement had,been
contracted, though there have been
some direct shipments here. Under
the new arrangement for an all
American line routing at the going
freight rate an appreciable gain Is
looked for In the column of Imports.
The routing of gunnies from Cal
cutta will be on small "feeder"
steamors, which are utilized in as
sembling cargo at Hongkong, Manila
and such ports for the convenience
of the trans-Pacific fleet.
EIGHT GRAI2T SHIPS IN" PORT
Tenpaisan Mara Leaves With Big
Wheat Cargo for Europe.
With the departure of the Jap
anese steamer Tenpaisan Mara last
night, and the Norwegian steamer
Torrey under orders to leave early
this morning, eight of the grain
fleet will remain In the river either
loading cargo or awaiting orders to
proceed to a loading berth. The
Tenpaisan Mara is headed for the
United Kingdom with a full wheat
cargo, while the Torrey is bound for
the far east and her Portland cargo
Is made up of 45,816 barrels of flour
for Shanghai and 5000 barrels for
Hongkong. The ship came here
from New Orleans, where she took
aboard considerable general freight
for the orient.
Three, vessels were at terminal
No. 4 yesterday for bulk wheat and
the Tokufuku Maru probably will
' finish there today and her berth
will be taken by the Baltimore
Maru. The Victoria Mara and Orient
City began lining yesterday for
BRAZIL NUTS SHIPPED HERE
West Jappa Arrives With 1000
Bags for local Discharge.
t One unusual direct shipment to
be discharged here-yesterday from a
deepwaterman was 1000 bags of
Brazil nuts, which were brought by
the steamer West Jappa, of the
Swayne & Hcyt South American ser
vice. She reported in tht harbor at
10 o'clock in the morning and left
' down at 6 o'clock. Incidentally, it
had been intended to land the nuts
at San Francisco, but they were or
dered here and while the consign
ment was shown on the coasting
manifest, it was in bond and not
enumerated on the foreign manifest,
so the customs house officials took
the master to task.
There were 860 bags of sunflower
seed, originating at Buenos Aires,
2000 bags of coffee from Santos,
Brazil, and miscellaneous freight.
Outward the vessel worked a small
coneignment of flour for the return
voyage and went on to Puget Sound.
CARGO LOADING SPEEDS TJP
Bf ore Wheat and Lumber Carriers
Increase Harbor Activities.
More wheat and lumber carriers
here for. cargoes created a spurt in
the circles of longshoremen yes
terday and it was said close to 750
men were engaged, while additional
gangs could have been utilized. As
the average run of work of late has
not demanded such a number' of
longshoremen, part of those who
follow the trade are believed to have
temporarily found other vocations.
It is the opinion on the water
front that the next few weeks will
be busy, especially should an ad
justment of railroad strike diffi
culties be brought '.. about, so there
would be a more free movement of
grain from the interior, which is
understood to be influenced at pres
ent because of limited rolling stock.
The increase in intercoasta'l freight
in both directions, restoration of
oriental services and normal coast
wise business add to the volume of
Munson Line Enters Coast Trade.
Announcement that the Munson
line has entered the intercoastal
service and that the first steamer,
the Munaires, which has visited
here, will get away from New York
for the Pacific coast October -7, is
interesting Portlanders. So far as
has been ascertained the matter of
a Portland representative has not
beeTTsettled. One opinion in shipping
circles is that the Munson Interests
decided to bid for a share of the
trade as a result of the Atlantic,
Gulf & Pacific having suspended
service. , .
Full Cargo of Snlphur Coming.
Storage of between 6000 and 7000
tons of sulphur from the Gulf region
at terminal No. 4- is being nego
tiated. The material, which is to
be used in connection with the
manufacture of paper, moves this
way in smaller quantities at times,
but in view of lower freights from
the Atlantic side it is proposed to
move a full caj-go. With storage
added the saving in transportation
is sufficient to Justify the arrange
ment. Swimmer ",in . Nude Fined.
Dan McSherry, 19 years old, mess
boy aboard the steamer T. J. Potter,
paid a fine of $14 in the municipal
court yesterday on pleading guilty
to swimming in the Willamette
river minus bathing garb. He was
arrested Monday by the harbor pa
trol force, on the beach below where
the Potter is lying. The waterfront
minions have conducted an active
campaign against bathers disre
garding an ordinance in which the

Pilots Ge Branches.'
The Oregon state board of pilot
commissioners ' yesterday granted
branches ' to Captains George F.
Gildez ad S. S. Dalby of the Co
lumbia River Pilots' association.
The cicerones were among the best
known steamboat skippers in the
district and became affiliated with
the pilotage service a few months
ago. The commission reissued the
river branch of Captain Isaac
Turppa. Until granted state
branches pilots are restricted in
their operations to handling Ameri

Veteran Operators Confident That
Some of Imprisoned Crew
Will Survive Ordeal.
JACKSON, Cal., Sept. 12. (By the
Associated - Press.) "Forty-eight
hours more and the miners will be
released," - was. the cry in Jaokson
tonight when word came' that the
last barrier to the Argonaut mine
will be broken through late Thurs
day night or early Friday morning.
Although no eignals have been
heard from the 47 men since the
first 45 minutes of their imprison
ment August 27, veteran miners be
lieve that a few of the stronger
and more experienced, men are still
alive, saying that the number will
be easily counted on the fingers of
one hand. Others firmly believe
that all have been killed by the
deadly poison fame? that have filled
the burning i-iine, for the last two
Officials who have bee-0 drag
ging along tired, weary and with
broken spirits, sleeping but three
or four hours each night for the
last two weeks, were keenly active
today and alert for the final
struggle. Once mors women be
gan flocking to the adjoining Ken
nedy mine from which the rescue
crews are working, and it is thought
the number of spectators will grow
steadily until word comes from
either ths 2600 or 3900"-foot levels
of the Kenneddy that a connection
withthe Argonaut is a reality.
-The fire in the Argonaut has Just
about" burned itself out, according
to F. R. Lowell, safety engineer of
the California accident commission.
He said this was proved by the
fact that" today's test of poison gas
below the 2400-foot level of the
Muldoon shaft, the perpendicular
approach' to. the Argonaut, which
has been blocked, as well as the
main Inclined shaft itself, by the
fire, showed less than 4 per cent
of carbon d'oxide, with just a trace
of the deadly carbon monoxide gas
and 15 percent of oxygen.

That old French style of architedure, carefully
preserved during the centuries and faithfully copied
in the newer structures, lends a picturesque charm

less other features will stand out in your memory
of a "vacation you will never forget".
