THE SUNDAY OKEGONIAX, PORTLAND. APRIL 7, 1907.
Steamer Chartered by Regu
lator Line Management
for The Dalles Run.
FASTEST CRAFT ON RIVER
Boat Has Been Tied Vp for Xearly
Three Years and Her Future
Has Worried Waterfront Men
for Many Long Months.
The steamer Telephone has been
chartered to the Regulator Line and
will operate between Portland and The
rlle9. The deal was consummated
yesterday afternoon, and the papers
signed which places In commission the
crack steamer of the Willamette and
Columbia Rivers. The steamer will be
placed In commission as soou as pos
sible, and will go into service in place
of tlu; steamer Joseph Kellogg, which
has been returned to her owners. Dur
ing the interim the steamer Capital
City will make a few trips in the pas
The charter of the Telephone to the
Regulator people puts at rest the gos
sip that has been going the rounds
of the front in regard to the future of
the fastest steamer that has ever op
erated on the river. The Telephone
was built In 1903. and with the excep
tion of three months during the Sum
mer of 190"., has never been operated.
For several years she was a landmark
at the Haseltlne dock, on the East
Side. Two weeks jjgo she was towed
to the Victoria dolphins, and is now
With the sale, of the steamer North
west to Captain Bonser, who will take
the steamer to British Columbia, the
Joseph Kellogg, then operating for the
Regulator Line, was transferred back
to her owners, and the demands of the
business werp such that It was imper
ative that another vessel be secured
Immediately. M. Talbot, general man
ager of the Regulator Line, secured an
option for a lease on the steamer Tele
graph, but as her freight-carrying
capacity was limited, he successfully
maneuvered for the Telephone.
The Telephone Is 2'11 feet long, 31.5
feet beam and 8 feet depth of hold.
She is conceded by steamboat men to
be fastest piece of stern-wheel marine
architecture afloat. While definite
conclusions have never been tried be
tween her and the Telegraph, her rec
ord, when matched against the Charles
R. Spencer, is good enough to place her
at the top of the list.
COASTING BUSINESS INCREASES
More Vessels Handled hy Tugs Than
During March, 1908.
During the month of March the tugs
operating on the Columbia River Bar
handled 49 vessels, bound In and out. As
compared with the corresponding month
of last year this Is a Rood showing. Dur
ing March, 1906. 43 vessels were handled.
Of this number 25 were coasters and 18
foreign ships. During the month Just
closed 32 coasters and 10 foreign ships
were towed across the bar.
While the foreign business of last year
was considerably in excess of that hand
led this season, the foreign shipments are
largely In excess of the corresponding
month of 1606. This Is due to the fact
that a majority of the exports of food
stuffs have gone to the Orient in steam
ers and the tugboat service makes no re
port on steam vessels crossing in and
out. The number of coasting vessels has
Had It not been for the trouble caused
by the Industrial Workers the list of coast
ers would have been largely in excess of
the figures given. A number of coast
ing craft were diverted to the Sound.
STEAMERS MAKE A RECORD
More Wheat Handled During March
Than Any Previous Month.
During the month of March the three
steamers of the O. R. & N. Co., operat
ing on the Snake River, moved 91.8T1
sacks of wheat to the railroad. This Is
R2.6.Vt sacks in excess of the amount moved
by the same vessels during February.
During the second month of the year
there was considerable delay on account
of Ice; shortage of coal and cars. During
last month there has been agood boat
ing st.ige and cars and coal have been
The amount of grain handled during
March i.s In excess of any previous rec
ord made by three boats on the Snake
River. April 1 there remained at the vari

V0 sacks. With plenty of snow still 1n
the mountains and prospects better tliRn
ever before for continued good water, the
balance of the wheat crop will be han
dled within three months. The fleet will
be In position to handle the new crop.
EllBOre Will linn to Astoria.
Oil-burners are being Installed In the
steamer Elmore at the yards of the O.
R. X. Co. It is the Intention of Cap
tain Conway to operate the steamer on
the lower river during the coming Sum
mer In order to relieve the Hassalo.
which has lately been unable to keep up
with the work. During the beach sea
son there Is an excess of freight and
passengers, and the need of an extra boat
has been felt for several reasons past.
The Modoc Is running In place of the
Klmore on the upper Willamette.
Miitliloimi Will Go on Ways.
Within the next ten days the snagboat
M.ithloma will be hauled out on the ways
and her hull put in shape for next sea
son's business. The Mathloma has been
in the yards at the Government moorings
for some time past, having her machin
ery overhauled. Ry the first of May she
will go Into commission and will pull a
number of snags in the lower Willamette.
At the entrance to the Willamette slough
there are several and in the main chan
nel between Albina and the St. Johns
mill are more.

Repair Chicago Tracks at Once.
CHICAGO. April 6 The effectual work
of reconstructing the Chicago city rail
way lines probably will begin on Monday.
Drawings and plans for the first work
that of replacing all tracks have been
completed by a force of men working
under BionJ Arnold, the city's chief en
gineer, and all that remains Is the ac
ceptance of the ordinances by the rail
President Mitten Is now In New Tork
arranging for future contracts. He will
return to Chicago tomorrow, and it Is
expected he will have the authority to
accept the traction ordinances on be
half of his company. The city still will
have 30 days to consider the ordinances
before accepting them, but It is generally
understood that this right will be waived
and orders immediately given for carry
ing on the w-ork begun.
The new rails are to be of the heavy
flat type, which will give the maximum
of speed with the minimum of power.

decrease in the number of reports claim
ing damage by "green bugs." a number of
advices were received denying any serious
Injury. This tended to increase the sell
ing. The market continued weak up to
the close, which was almost at the low
est point. May wheat opened a shade
lower at 78c, sold off IShs and closed ?ic
lower at 1BC.
Trading in corn was quiet and the tone

weakness of wheat. The close was steady.
May closed c lower at 46c.
Oats were remarkably steady, consider
ing the weakness of wheat. May closed
tt lower at 42c. ,

IN THE SURPLUS
EXCKEDS THE MAXIMUM FIG
URE FOR LAST YEAR.
Cash Increase of New York Banks,
However, Does Not Come Up
XEW TORK. April 6. The Financier
says: While the official statement of the
New York associated ban ks showed a
material increase in cash, it did not fully
reflect the gain in that item which was
expected to be shown as the result of
the movements of the week and also of
the bringing over from the previous
week of the unrecorded increase. The
loan item was disappointing, in that It
recorded only a moderate expansion, but
a much larger gain was looked for. The
results as indicated in the surplus re
serve were, however, quite satisfactory,
this showing a larger amount than was
recorded as the maximum last year,
when on July 21 it was $19,391,000; more
over, the specie item is greater than that
in 1906. though the total cash is about
$5,000,000 less than the highest In the
year. It is noteworthy that, compared
with March 23. the public deposits in the
banks increased $15,877,600, or very nearly
as much as the sum distributed In the
fortnight through the subtreasury. The
gain as officially reported last week was
$10,533,900. General deposits were in
creased $16,S95,S00. which amount very
nearly agreed with the sum of the in
crease in cash and the expansion in
loans, so that the statement made & good
proof. The required reserve was in
creased $4,223,960, deducting which from
the gain in cash leaves $6,309,950 as the
increase in surplus reserve to $19,441,225.
Computed upon the basis of deposits,
less thereof $30,389,700 in the public funds,
the surplus is $27,036,650. Loans were ex
panded by $6,143,600, and the excess of
this item over general deposits was re
duced, compared with the previous week,
The statement of the clearing-house
banks for the week follows:
Loans l.O62.6S8.S0O $ 6.143. (tX)
