Bridge Name Committee to Cir
culate Petitions Secretary
Prepares Statistics.
Based on carefully collated statis
tic! showing tonnage and vessels using
the Wllamette River soutn of Madison
Bridge, petitions will be presented to
the Federal government to deepen the
channel to Oswego to a depth of 30
feet. Interested In this movement are
Dak Grove. MUwaukle. Sellwood. South
Portland and Fulton, and an active Or
ganization has been formed of repre
sentative citizens from these districts
ko -present this issue to United States
engineers and the Oregron Congress
Petitions are being prepared by a
ttpecial committee and a letter is be
ing prepared addressed to the Portland.
Manufacturers' Association, Commer
cial Club and other civic organizations,
asking for their indorsement. It will
be urged that by a channel ?0 feet deep
to Oswego the Portland harbor will be
enlarged for that distance south, and
- hat it will result in opening up to use
!ong stretches of river front now of
mall value for manufacturing estab
lishments and mills. Already a consid
erable number of concerns have loca
tions south of Madison Bridge. Thb
rement factory at Oswego will ship
1000 barrels of cement a day when in
Bert C. onea. secretary of the gen
eral committee from the districts which
ire behind the movement, collected the
following dttta in approximate figures:
"The character, draft and capacity "of
the boats, etc., ere steam and sail
ocean-going vessels, oil barges towed
by steam boats, also- steam boats en
gaged in local traffic. The draft varies.
In the Summer ships drawing from 21
to 26 feet can reach Inman. Poulsen
pumber Mills and the Portland Lumber
Mills, but in the Fall the limit is 17
Iq. IS feet, on account of the water be
ing only 19 feet at zero, on account of
the Bull Run City pipe line. This may
mean an obstacle to our undertaking,
but all things considered it is not, for
the trade is supplied partly now by
ateamers capable of taking care of
their business and what would accrue
as a benefit if the cliannl was deepened
ko Oswego,- is our aim and ambition, for
Under the present conditions only two
of the mills are accomniodated.-
"The approximate freight handled Is:
Lumber 15,000,000 feet a month, for
eign: 10,000,000 feet a month, coast
wise; paper. 160 tons a day; pulp, 100
tons a day; fuel oil, 500 tons a month;
general freight, 1000 tons a month;
logs. 350,000.000 feet towed in.
'The capacity of the mills along the
water front is approximately as fol
lows per 10 hours: Inman-Poulsen
Mills, 250,000 feet; Portland'' Lumber
Mills, 250,000 feet; Oregon & Washing
ton Mills, 100,000 feet; West Side Lum
ber Mills, 100,000 feet; Multnomah'Box
and Lumber Company. 75,000 feet; Sell
wood Lumber Mills, 150,000 feet; Jones
Lumber Mills", 100,000 feet; Mllwaukia,
60,000 feet.
"When It is realized that the output
on the river is so great, with only a
channel for reaching two of the mills.
It stands to reasoi. that a 30-foot chan
nel to Milwaukie and Oswego would in
crease the volume oZ business. '
"There are a large number o con
cerns along the West Side who would
avail ...emselves of the cheaper trans
portation. The Oregon Furniture Com
pany, the chair factory, the packing
plant, the tannery and several others.
The building of the cement plant -at
Oswego with the capacity of 1000 bar
rels a day in the start is a sign of the
times. Now this company Is shipping
2000 tons of cement and 1000 tons of
iron fo the construction of the build
ings. It aims to ship largely by
water." ;.
