One Plant to Employ 1SOO Men.
" A. F. Smith, head of the Columbia
River. Shipbuilding Corporation, an
nounces that his company will have
from 1200 to 1500 men on Its payroll
when the plant is working full time.
It being Intended to build the six ships
under contract, complete in every de
tail. Boiler and machine shops will be
erected on the site, which Is next to
that of the Northwest Steel Company,
no all but the turbine engines coming
from the East will be turned out here.
The same plan is followed by the
Northwest Steel Company and Willam
ette Iron & Steel Company, the former
building the ships, there being eight
under contract, while the Willamette
Interests manufacture the machinery,
except the turbines, and attend to all
Installation. Each of those plants now
is working more thai 600 men.
The Albina Engine & Machine Works
having contracts for smaller vessels,
they being 3300 tons deadweight, while
the other ships are of 8800 tons, will
have a complete plant for all work, as
the main engines will be turned out as
weli as boilers and auxiliary gear.
Other Yard Are Bust.
At the McEachern yard. Astoria,
more than 300 men are worjclng, about
260 at the Peninsula plant, and other
wooden yards have smaller forces, but
all will Increase as work arranged for
Is begun. Progress is not expected to
be limited during the Winter, because
sheds are being provided over all ves
sels for protection against weather.
With the steel ship contracts nas
come new business for smaller plants
In the way of turning out castings,
brasses and different parts, as well aa
lifeboats, also supplies and gear from
ship chandlers, and in cabin furnish
ings more of the shore fraternity will
benefit, while future promises include
the establishment of a steel roller mill
for turning out steel required here and
elsewhere along the coast.

the purchase of the old Columbia River
lightvessel No. 50 here a week ago to

old steamer Portland, better known
here In the early part of her varied
career as the Haytien Republic, is to

It was 19 years ago in July that the
arrival of the Portland at Seattle with
the first shipment of Klondike gold
started the stampede to the north, the
wealth having been panned from the
Yukon River. Commenting on the gen
eral history of the steamer, the Rail
way and Marine News says:
The Portland besan her loniy career In
188i. under the name of the Haytien Ke
public, and she started at once to furnish
copy for the newspapers, as she was seized
for carrying contraband to ine reoeis in
Hayti. When the United States Government
forced her release, an attempt was maae io
sink her as she left the harbor of Port au
Prince, and the marks or this Drusn wnn
the gunboat selected to do the work were
still visible when she came to the pacinc
Coast In 18S9.
She failed to make sooa ootn as a can
nery boat and passenger steamer; and was
finally chartered for service between
Sound and. the .Columbia River. It is saiu
that later she became a carrier of contra
hnnri rhinese and onium. at which she was
successful until seized and sold by the Gov
ernment at Portland.
Her new owners renamed her the Port
land, and after improving the vessel sne
had a varied and somewhat respectable
career, running to all points between Pan

Colonel Potter came here to succeed
Colonel McKinstry, and soon after
