CENTRAL DOCK IS WANTED
Larger Warehouse Room Needed to
v Handle Business of Company.
Wheat MoTlng on Upper Co
lumbia Waterfront Xews.
An effort is being made by the Open
River Transportation Company to lease
Central dock, at the foot of Washington
street. The dock is owned by the Ban-fleld-Veysey
Fuel Company and was dam
aged by fire about 10 days ago. It has
been used as a warehouse and landing
place for small steamers. The steamer
Charles R. Spencer has docked there dur
ing the past two Summers. The Open
River Company has bad quarters on the
Oak-street dock since it has been operat
ing steamers out of Portland.
Beginning Tuesday morning the Open
River Company will have a daily boat out
of Portland and one out of The Dalles.
To handle the business which is offering
It will be necessary for them to secure
larger quarters than tnose now occupied.
The Oak-street dock is owned by XV. P.
Fuller and is now utilized as a warehouse
and dock for the steamship Breakwater
and also the boats of the Loop Lumber
Company. The apace would be too small
to handle large quantities of wheat or
general merchandise for the river boats.
The steamer Sarah Dixon will go into
commission and will operate on opposite
days to the steamer J. N. Teal. The
Dixon will be commanded by Captain W.
P. Short and H. C. Allen will act as
purser. The engineer's crew is hired by
the owners of the boat.
The steamer Relief, on the Upper River,
Is handling ail the wheat which is being
delivered at the landings. Close to 1500
sacks dally are being landed at the upper
end of the Portage road. The Relief is
making only short hauls.
SPOKAXK NOW IX SERVICE
Freight-Boat Goes in Commission on
Snake River Division.
The steamer Spokane, of the Snake
River fleet, has been placed In commission
and will operate for a time between RI
paria and Central Ferry carrying wheat.
The water Is low in the Snake River and
navigation Is difficult. The steamer Lew
Iston will be placed in commission shortly.
On the south batik of the Snake River
there are large quantities of wheat which
cannot be handled by the North Bank
road and It is necessary to operate the
steamers to handle tkis crop. There are
large quantities at Ilia and the Tramways
and as soon as the water rises this will be
taken care of.
Harbormaster In Down-Town Office
Rothsrhild & Co., successors to Brown
& McCabe, have tendered desk room in
their offices at Second and Ash streets to
Harbormaster Speier. The offer has been
accepted and hereafter the Harbormaster
will be within easy reach of the shipping
Tuen and masters of vessels. Heretofore
the office of Captain Speier has been lo
cated In the City Hall, a long way off
from the center of the shipping of the
port. The change will be welcomed by all
connected with the waterfront.
Longshoremen's Convention at End.
Officers of the various Longshoremen's
T'nions who have been in conference at
Portland during the past week refuse to
give out any Information regarding the
action taken on various subjects under
consideration. The conclave ended at a
late hour Friday night and the members
silently left for their several homes.

FIRES DO MUCH DAMAGE
Serfons Loss to Forests Arouses
ORZGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. Sept. 26. The forest fires which
have just laid waste whole counties in
Minnesota, Michigan, and extended In
to Wisconsin, destroying many towns
and making thousands of persons home
less, have focused the atention of both
Government and state forest officers
on the enormous losses of forest wealth
which will be checked up to the year
In the whole Northern half of the
United States, throughout the vast ter
ritory extending from coast to coast,
the reported destruction by forest fires
has-been terrific and It is likely that
the year will go down as one of the
worst In the last quarter century. It
seems that no part of the country has
escaped the work of the devastating
flames. ' The latest disasters In Minne
sota, Michigan, and Wisconsin are the
worst of the many that have visited
the lake states this year. Other sec
tions have also suffered from forest
fires during the Spring and Summer
months, and the people of the Pacific
Coast, the Rocky Mountain and the New
Bngland States and Canada, have had a
thorough, and In some cases, a continu
ous experience In fire fighting.
Officers in the United States Forest
Service here say that It Is doubtful If
this year's actual losses from forest
fires in all parts of the country will
ever be known, but It Is certain that
they will run up so high In the millions
that the country will be startled when
a compilation of statistics at the end
of the season makes it possible to give
even the most conservative figures. Suf
fice It to say. were all the timber
burned up this year In all parts of the
country converted Into cash. It oould
provide for a good-sized navy of first
The fires have done good In one way;
they have focused the people's atten
tion on the seriousness of the forest
fire problem, practical foresters say,
and have started a widespread move
ment In many states to check them by
adopting rational systems of fire pro
tection. Among thinking people there
has been awakened an intense interest
in throwing a better protection around
the forests, which grow more Import
ant as a natural resource as the timber
The Government has had a lot of
work in the fire fighting line In the
National Forests, but serious as the
fires haver been, careful patrol and the
organization of a force to battle with
the flames as soon as discovered has
held the losses down to a point where
they are utterly Insignificant when one
considers the fearful destruction which
would have come about had there been
Although the fire menace has been
serious in all sections, officers of the
Forest Service estimate that the total
cost of the forest fires in the National
Forests for the season, exclusive of the
salaries of forest officers, will not be
more than 130,000. This sum Is small
when lc is remembered that It means
fire protection for approximately 18,
000.000 acres of National Forests, less
than two-tenths of a mill per "acre.
Progressive state fire wardens and
forest officers. Individuals and private
corporations having large timber hold
ings have organized f lre-f lghtlng forces
along much the same line as the Gov
ernment In many cases, and in this way
they have given protection to millions
of acres of timber which might have
been destroyed had it been left unprotected.

troller Proposes Reform.
NEW YORK, Septf 25. (Special.)
New York City spends 1300,000 a year
for supplies and repairs to automobiles
owned by various officeholders, and
Controller Metz is trying to bring about
a reform. He wants a city-owned and
city-controlled garage, where all ma
chines will be stored. In addition he
suggests that time clocks or taximeters
be applied to all city-owned vehicles,
so that a record of their mileage can
"Nobody objects to officeholders us
ing automobiles for city business," says
the Controller, "what we object to is
'joy rides' out of office hours. The
amount of pleasure riding that is In
dulged In Is appalling. It Is time a
check was applied."
The Controller's Inspectors have made
several interesting reports as to the
present condition of affairs. They have
spotted city-owned automobiles at
Coney Island and other resorts, one
machine being caught with a pleasure
party aboard as Jar out on Long Island
Connecticut and New Jersey are fa
miliar spots to the municipal pleasure
hunters. There were several good
fights in New Jersey recently, and some
of the boys who receive salaries from
the city and have a pull with the
"heads" had the city automobiles con
vey them to the ring In state. There
have been cock-fighting expeditions too,
which the "boys" really enjoyed, and
the chauffeurs got a few liberal tips,
enoug anyway to make them feel quite
at home with the bunch they took
Chiefs Run Automobile Cavalcades.
A department head Is monarch of
all he surveys in the automobile line.
In the dead hours of the night or in
the small hours of the morning, be
can command a whole cavalcade of
automobiles for his own use or that
of his friends. Any of the commis
sioners, from health to bridges, have
control over any number of gasoline
buggies, and while the taxpayers foot
the bill for the semi-official automobile
dash, the department chief or his near
est friend may reap the pleasures of
a whirl to any old place at the city's
cost. And it is a species of graft for
which no regulation at present pro
vides a tab.
For instance, if Commissioner BlacK
wants to take a party of friends -to
Coney Island, the Rockaways, or up
In Westchester, all he has to do is to
command the city-paid chauffuer to
get busy with the machine and the
buzzer Is on the Job. If there is any
thing a clty-pald chauffuer likes to do
It Is to go slumming In -the automobile
with his boss. He does not get paid
extra, but the tips he receives and the
good time he enjoys more than com
pensate. The bridge department has no gar
age fees to be charged to the city, nor
has the finance department. Their au
tomobiles and those owned by the
health department are stored in places
owned by the city. But other depart
ments have garage bills for the city to
pay for sums that would provide a
thousand families with food and shel
ter for a year.
And the bills for repairs! Even the
Controller blushes when he meets them
face to face. The fact is that the cost
of repairs, the bills for gasoline, the
supplies and the wages of the chauf
fuers aggregates annually many
thousands more than the original cost
of the machine.
City Owns Nearly 100 Autos.
tw Awns nearlv 100 automo

Result of Joy Excursion.
- Sometimes the navigators of these
elty-owned craft go to the hospital.
They become altogether too exuberant.
James Oough, a clty-pald chauffeur.
In charge of a finance department
buzzer, thought he saw a clear track
the other night at One Hundred and
Forty-fifth street and Lenox avenue.
His friend, Donald Wenck, of No. 62
Wallace street. Red Bank, N. J., was
with him. There was a fine excavation
at the crossing and Gough's machine
dropped into It. A derrick was needed
to haul out the machine, and the
chauffeur and his friend spent two
days in the hospital.
But the bill for repairs, amounting to
$657.93, will be paid by the city, and
the chauffeur will draw his salary
while he remains Incapacitated.
This la only one of a number of cases.
In fact municipal automobiles figure
in the news of the day aoverej tlmaa
week-. And this, despite the fact that
many of their exploits are carefully
suppressed by the police.
Metz Proposes Reforms.
"If anybody can show me a way to
control these city-owned machines, m
be glad to adopt it," said Controller
Metz when Interviewed on the subject.
"I will stand for a city garage and the
taximeter thing, so long as we can keep
these chauffeurs and their friends in
"It is human nature to take ad
vantage of things, but It is not honest.
I will stop excursions at the expense
of the city If I can, and if a city
owned garage, where these fellowa are
required to report at regular times, and
a taximeter contrivance will do It, I,
for one, favor them. Why, I use my
own private auto at times on city busi
ness, and never even charge for the
gasoline, and I know other department
officials who do the same thing. But
I believe in putting the time clock on
all haTnds. It seems to be the only fair
way. and I am heartily In favor of it."
Up to date the other bureau chiefs
have not exhibited any great enthusi
asm on the Conryoller's reform sug
gestion. It is fine to own an automobile, but
It is much more joyful to control a
whole string of machines, and never
pay a cent for the privilege of run

OYSTER BAY, Sept 26. President
Roosevelt; in khaki attire, attended the
garden party given on the grounds of
John Weekes, Jr., here this afternoon,
for the benefit of the Nassau Hospi

a number of men and women and chil

that he deplored the conditions exist

He had visited and enjoyed many ex
hibits on the grounds and was then
escorted to a Swedish and Norwegian
weaving booth, decorated with red,
white and blue. He regarded the
woven goods displayed there with in

When told that It was he remarked:
"I hope the Swedes who come here
to live will keep up their work. I
want to see all the good customs of
the old countries transplanted. I want
the Germans who come here to keep
up their clubs and societies, where the
fathers, mothers and children visit to

a general observance of such a system.
It has been hard work, but I still have
Live Too Far Apart.
"Here in America," he went on. rais
ing his voice so all who had gathered
about the booth could hear, "husbands
and wives live too far apart. If a man
joins a club or organization his wife
will have nothing to do with It. If a
wife belongs to a society nothing, ap
parently, will induce her husband to
have anything to do with it. -We must
have a better family life, here in
America, and learn lessons from Swe
den, Norway and Germany. These
countries give us some of our best cit
izens. - "Look at prosperous Minnesota,
where men of Swedish and Norwegian
parentage are rival candidates for Gov
ernor. It's good, vary good. I hope
we have more of it."
The President was invited to try his
luck at the shooting range, but de
"I don't like to shoot In public It
would make too much of a spectacle."
The President entered with zest into
the festivities, taking chances on va
rious things. Including a French poodle
and a $3000 oil painting. Ethel Roose
velt, the President's daughter, pre
sided over the tea booth, and Archie
and Quentln were the proud proprie
tors of a shooting gallery. Mrs. Roose
velt went around with her husband,
shook bands with the ladies and sup
plied the President with cash when his
funds ran low.
Beselged by Girls.
When the President entered the
grounds he made for the old Cuban
army tent, which he had loaned for
the purposes of the garden party. It
had been set up on a knoll near the
house and was utilized as a postofflce.
As the President dismounted a bevy
of pretty girls made a rush for him.

POOR MAX HAS NO CHANCCE
Cant Afford to Make Canvass Under
ABERDEEN, Wash., Sept. 26. (Special)
"Despite the result of the contest for
the Republican nomination for State
Treasurer, I still think the direct primary
law a farce In so far as it applies to state
offices under the rank of Governor."
So John G. Lewis summarises his posi
tion on the new method, even though he
has been selected under It as the Repub
lican nominee for State Treasurer. Says
Mr. La wis:
"It's all right for county offices, all
right for Governor, all right for Senator,
but it's all wrong from every standpoint
for other offices. -It entails the heaviest
kind of expense on the candidate, and it
provides the voter with no criterion, no
way by which he may Judge of the quali
fications of the various candidates. It hi
simply impossible for a candidate not well
known to canvass this state, meet any
considerable proportion of the people and
furnish them with an adequate means of
knowing whether a man is fit for the posi
tion to which he aspires.
"During my comparatively short trip
over the state I found men who had ac
tually mortgaged their homes In order to
raise money enough to make a canvass.
Now, they can't all be elected: but you
can't convince that kind of a man that he
hasn't a chance. So it is that I see no
