1 WILL GET
SOil MM SHIPS
Craft Bought From Federal
USES NOT DETERMINED
M. Barde & Sons, Who Are Among
Purchasers, ExpecV About
25 Steamers Here.
Of the 50 to 69 wooden steamers
of the shipping: board fleet of 226
vessels purchased Tuesday by a
Pacific, 'coast syndicate for $750,000,
that are to be . brought from the
east coast, perhaps 20 to ?5 vessels
will be sent to Portland, according
to M. Barde & Sons, who are Inter
ested with the Fleicnhackers and
others of San Francisco in the trans
action. Plans for the operation of the car
riers are not fully developed, the
head of the Barde organization said
yesterday, but as the terms of the
sale permit the operation of the
steamers on other than regularly es
tablished trade routes, he said, it
was calculated there were abundant
uses to which the ships can be put
Some Ships Ballt Here.
- In (he fleet purchased, which is
held et Claremont, Vs., and Orange
and Beaumont, Tex., are many that
were constructed in the Oregon dis
trict and perhaps some of those will
be among those selected for Pacific
Such ships as will not be operated,
because of their condition and ex
pense of overhauling, may bo '"dis
mantled, but the Impression here is
that nearly all of them will be
placed in service, though some time
will be required in which to find
fields for them.
It is believed that some of those
In the group of purchasers are pre
pared to take part of the tonnage at
once and place it in active service,
and in other cases changes will be
made so as better to fit the ves
sels for carrying timbers and long
lengths of lumber as demanded in
the Pacific coast trade.
Coal May Be Carried.
Possibilities of coal business have
been discussed and other avenues
are under consideration that are
construed by the government as not
within the scope of the restriction
as to regularly established trade
The Barde and Fleischhacker in
terests were the principals in the
purchase earlier in the year of un
completed hulls in Lake Washing
ton, on North Portland harbor and
at Alameda, and various plans for
their future have been rumored,
even to fitting some of the hulls
with oil-burning engines. The only
move as to the Portland vessels has
been to draw three of them from
the fleet to be used in conjunction
with salvage operations at the scene
of the wreck of the steamer Welsh
Prince, the contract for which M.
Barde & Sons also hold.
RIVER TRAFFIC HAMPERED
Navigators Expect Rivers and
Harbors Bill to Remedy Evils.
, Steamboat operators, particularly
those engaged in towing log rafts,
are awaiting developments In con
nection with the signing of the
rivers and harbors bill by President
Harding, which is looked for short
ly, because of authorization given
for the removal of two dams and a
dike in Willamette slough.
The works, which originally were
undertaken as improvements in be
half of navigation, are held now to
hamper the free movement of steam
boats with tows, because of the cur
rent created. For years steamers
handling passengers and freight be
tween Portland and St. Helens and
Rainier have used the slough route,
being able to overcome the current,
but with towboats the flow is too
strong at ordinary stages of water.
Another point is that log rafts are
drawn from the lower part of ttie
slough and it is necessary at pres
ent for steamers to tow them to the
main river by way of St. Helens.
While the new bill grants author
ity for removing the works, funds
are not yet provided for.

Liberty theater. None can deny the
heights to which she carries Bal

herself regarded merely as a toy

The massive and artistic ballroom,

elaborate sets in this picture. It is
far superior to any that has been

The story concerns itself with a
wife of purity transformed by
despair into a court beauty and

GRAIN SHiPPJNG ACTIVE
BRITISH STEAMER BENBOR
I,ICH SIGXEI FOR TRADE.
Two Japanese Craft Arrive to Join
Wheat Fleet and Another
Engagement of the new British
steamer Benvorlich by the Gray
Rosenbaut Grain company to load
either in British Columbia, on Puget
sound or at Portland in October, the
arrival of the Japanese steamers
Karachi Maru and Turi Maru to join
the wheat fleet and the completion
of the bulk grain cargo of the Jap
anese steamer Tokufuku Maru, were
features in the cereal transportation
The fact the Benvorlich was taken
with provision for loading in British
Columbia, the option being given
without c change in the freight, is
expected to be followed by other
engagements on the same basis. One
reason assigned is influences ex
erted on the movement of wheat
from the interior at American
northwest ports because of the
railroad labor difficulties, while on
the British Columbia side conditions
The time occupied in getting the
bulk cargo of the Tokufuku Maru
aboard at terminal No. 4, amounting
to 765-0 tons, was four days and
four hours and while not a record,
is said to' be creditable. The vessel
sailed in the afternoon for Europe.
The Gray-Rosenbaam interests have
the Japanese steamer Tofuku Maru
lying there for bulk wheat and an
other carrier in their fleet in port
Is the steamer Orient City.
The steamer Yuri Maru, which re
ported yesterday from Kobe, is un
der charter to the Northern Grain
& Warehouse company, which has
the steamer "Victoria Maru here for
wheat as well. The Karachi Maru,
which arrived yesterday from Mu
roran will get cargo from Kerr,
Gifford & Co., and others in the
river for that company include the
Anten, Frogner, Luise Nielsen
and Stathis. The Northwest Wheat
Growers association has the- Japa
nese steamer Baltimore Maru, also
at terminal No. 4 for bulk wheat.

PIER PILING BEING SENT
TERJHXAIi TJXIT EXTENSION
IS TOLL UNDER WAY.
Progress Being: Made on Fruit
Warehouse at St. Johns and
Early Completion Seen.
Driving of piling began yesterday
on. the extension of pier No. 1, at
terminal No. 4, St. Johns, which will
be carried about 300 feet northward
on the harbor line from tne present
completed section. The extension
will be covered by a shed adjoining
the main structure, as well as the
fruit storage warehouse on the
north side "of the pier, bids for the
latter being due for consideration
at a meeting of the commission of
public docks to be held at 10 o'clock
this morning. Foundation work is
going ahead for the fruit ware
house, which will be an especially
ventilated structure so ordinary
temperatures may be maintained.
The pier extension proper, as well
as the shed, is embraced in one con
tract and 60 days were allowed in
which to complete the work, so
progress will be watched by the
commission. The construction pro
gramme contemplates making avail
able such additional floor space
that facilities for wheat and general
cargo will be increased, as well as
making available modern conven
iences for assembling fruit and
other perishables for shipment to
markets of the world.
