LARGE HOLE F01D
II IE OE DREDGE
Deck of Portland Is Raised
REPAIRS ARE UNLIKELY
Craft Sunk by Pacific Mail Ship
Santa Clara Will Be Exam
ined Asa ill Today.
About amidships on the port side
of the dredge Portland is a i hole
in the hull about 12 feet long and
6 feet deep, bored when the dredge
was sunk by the Pacific Mail
freighter Santa Clara October 14,
when working in the east channel
at Swan island. That was ascer
tained yesterday when the dredge
was raised so the deck was above
the surface of the river. Unoffici
ally it is understood Port of Port
land officials maintain their original
attitude that for practical purposes
the Portland is a total loss.
. The Portland was moved to the
west side of the Bridgeport dock
"Wednesday, and yesterday after
noon an effort was being made to
get the hull inshore as far as pos
sible so she could rest on a shoal.
An inspection is to be made again
this afternoon, It being expected
that the hull will be higher out of
water. Should it be concluded to
put a soft patch over the break so
the hull can be pumped free of
water and the salvage of the ma
chinery thereby aided, it is expected
to discontinue the use of two dry
dock pontoons with which she was
When salvage operations were
commenced the superstructure of
the Portland was torn away,' both
to aid in floating her as well as
to ifacilitate the search for bodies
of. three men lost when she was
sunk. The apparent damage to the
hull, also the probability that it is
strained considerably, is held to be
against any plan for permanent re
pairs and, it is pointed out, work
that would be entailed in the res
toration of the machinery might
cost more than the salvage Virould
Regardless of the final conclu
sion on the part of port officials
as to the disposition of the Port
land, legal steps for damages were
taken following the accident
through libel proceedings against
the Santa Clara. Much of the de
tail involved perhaps will be re
viewed at the hearing Monday morn
ing of Captain S. S. Dalby, pilot of
the vessel, when it is indicated both
sides will be represented by counsel.
FREIGHTER TAKES APPLES
85,000 Boxes to Leave Port on
Close to 85,000 boxes of apples
will be aboard the Royal Mail
freighter Nebraska, which will
probably be going to sea today, and
additional consignments taken on
at Seattle, also those awaiting her
at S-an Francisco and San Pedro will
give her a total of 150, 000. Besides,
there will be some Portland ship
ments of prunes and at the Califor
nia ports fresh plums and boxes of
oranges are to be loaded.
The Narenta of the same line and
exclusively a refrigerator ship like
the Nebraska, loads here the middle
of the month. It is reported to the
Oregon Pacific company, agents for
the line, thr.t the Narenta steamed
from London to Balboa in 18 days.
She will be followed by the Nicthe
roy, also an extra carrier, the last
of the month. While those ships
have full refrigeration, the Royal
Mail and Holland America, regular
ships, have space for perishables as
well as general freight.
WEST KADER SHIFTS TODAY
Last of Space to Be Filled at Ter
minal No. 4.
Last of the space aboard the West
Kader, of the Columbia Pacific Ship
ping company's oriental freight car
riers, is to be filled at terminal No.
4 today. She is to shift there this
morning from terminal No. 1, and
the opening of the new week is to
see her en route westward. By then
the West Orowa will have reported
from Yokohama, at least such are
the calculations, and about the same
time the Hannawa should nose her
way into the Columbia river from
the Japanese harbor.
With the two newcomers here
will be the Pawlet, now working
cargo at the Globe mill, and the
West Cayote, which was lifted on
drydock yesterday to . have a new
tailshaft shipped. The latter is to
be ready to receive outward con

To Waterfront Employes an
Following; the publication of the Neutral Hall Rules and Regulations gov
erning Employment, the I. L. A., Local No. 38-6, held a special meeting
October 9th and adopted the following resolution:
, "WHEREAS, The Manager of the Neutral Hiring Hall has promulgated a new set
of working rules effective October 5th, and final close of registration October 12th, and
"WHEREAS, These working rules are contrary to terms of settlement between the
Waterfront Employers' Union and the Longshoremen's Local No. 38-6, I. L. A. and as
our membership has unqualifiedly rejected said rules and working conditions,
"Be it, therefore, RESOLVED, by Local No. 38-6 I. L. A. in extraordinary session
assembled this 9th day of October, 1522, that we refuse to work under the rules
prescribed and will not accept employment upon terms arbitrarily adopted against our
"Be it further RESOLVED, That our committee be and hereby is instructed to
immediately present our protest to the Waterfront Employers' Union and in doing so
said committee are hereby instructed that we, as Longshoremen, will not submit to any
part of the rules presented."
This resolution was attached to a letter of the same date addressed to the mem
bers of the Waterfront Employers' Union signed by Mr. McGivern, President, and
Herman Larsen, Secretary of Longshoremen's Union, Local No. 38-6, I. L. A. The
charge was made that the Neutral HaU had not been conducted in accordance with
the settlement of June 22d. A further charge was made that Messrs. parnes and
Buchtmann, who had both had long years of experience in the kind of work assigned
to them and who had been members of the Longshoremen's Union for many years,
were distasteful to the Union men, as they objected to being ordered and picked by
The direct charge was made that Messrs. Buchtmann and Barnes were members
of the Union and accepted their positions in the hall without sanction of the Union,
also that there was no necessity of any more despatchers. Our answer is to refer
you to Mr. Herman Larsen's credentials issued by the I. L. A., Local No. 3S-6, dated
September 21st and presented to the Neutral HaU Managing Committee as his au
thority to represent the Longshoremen's Union as a member of that Committee, and
to the proceedings of the meeting of the Neutral Hall Managing Committee held Sep
tembr 22d, signed by Mr. Larsen, agreeing to the employment of the extra despatch
ers and the selection of Messrs. Barnes and Buchtmann as the despatchers for Union
men. Both of these documents were printed in full in our announcement No. 2 pub
lished November 1st.
There has been considerable mention made by the strikers of "gunmen" being
employed in the Neutral Hall. There are no gunmen in the Neutral Hall. It was and
is necessary for the protection of the men working out of the Hall and for the pro
tection of stevedore and ship-lining companies who pay off at the Hall each week
to deputize the despatchers. This was only done after threats of violence had been
received by the despatchers and after the I. V. W. and radical members of the Long
shoremen's Union had caused trouble and discontent among the longshoremen, some
troublemakers coming into the hall in a drunken condition. We most certainly owe
it to the longshoremen and the employing companies to give them adequate protec
tion at the hall, especially on pay days, when we are faced with conditions such as
The communication of the Longshoremen's .Union, Local No. 38-6, I. L. A.,
dated October 9th was considered at a special meeting of the Waterfront Employ
ers' Union, attended by practically our entire membership,, on October 11th. The
administration of the Neutral Hall, all correspondence relating to any negotiations
whatsoever with the Longshoremen's Union and all other records pertaining to the
work were carefully investigated. It was the unanimous opinion of all present that
the Hall had been conducted in strict 'accordance with the strike settlement basis of
June 22d and the charges made by the Longshoremen's Union were without founda
tion or justification. Their communication of October 9th was, therefore, answered
in detail and the reply was endorsed and signed by every stevedore and ship-liner on
the Portland waterfront.
In the afternoon of October 12th there was a joint meeting of committees repre
senting the I. W. W. and I. L. A., Local No. 38-6, and these committees met again
early the next morning. They discussed a joint strike of the two organizations, to
be called in the name of the I. W. W., but actively supported by the I. L. A. Fri
day morning, October 13th, the I. W. W. met and again voted to strike, but decided
to withhold action until 4:30 P. M. that date, awaiting the action of the I. L. A. At
2 P. M. that day, at a hastily called meeting, with approximately 150 present out of
a claimed membership of 635, the I. L. A. Local No. 38-6 voted to join forces with the
I. W. W. in their strike and sent a committee to the I. W. W. hall to so inform them.
At 4 :30 P. M., same date, the two organizations declared the strike on at 5 P. M.
On October 14th, the day after the strike was called, a document dated Portland,
Oregon, September 17, 1922, and signed by M. Tr W. I. U. No. 510 of the I. W. W.
showing the seal of that organization, was thrown through one of the employment
windows of the Neutral HalL Since then the I. L. A. Local No. 38-6 has presented un
der their seal demands identical to those mide by the I. W. W., including certain de
mands made in behalf of the grain handlers whom they induced to join their strike on
October 18th, 1922.
This strike was called by the I. W. W. jointly with the Longshoremen's Union, Lo
cal 38-6, 1. L. A., without justification or cause of any kind being shown and without
prior notice of any kind being given to the Employers.
This I. W. W. strike is not entirely IocaL Portland was picked by the I. W. W.
as the weakest waterfront on the Pacific Coast. The I. W. W. throughout the North
west and at every port on this coast were fully advised of what was going oh and
urged to send in contributions for the support of the strike. They were also urged
to send I. W. W. members to Portland for picket duty and. other strike work.
If the Portland strike is successful similar strikes will be called at every other
port on this coast. .
It was due to these conditions that Mayor Baker promptly took control of the
situation and upset the carefully laid plans of the I. W. W. It is due to his efforts
that Portland had not been invaded by great numbers of undesirables.
This is not only a matter of utmost importance to Waterfront Employers, but is
of vital importance to every employer of labor in this city and community and to
every citizen of Portland. Union Longshoremen who allowed their leaders to drag
them into this strike would have suffered more than any others as the result
of the influx of the I. W. W. Had the I. W. W. campaign been successful they most
certainly would have replaced longshoremen working on this waterfront, both Union
and non-union not members of the I. W. W., with their members sent here from
Our final announcement will .appear in Saturday's papers and will be of consider
able interest to all concerned.
