Scandinavians Close Deal for
Steel Vessels for Europe.
Cargoes for Foreign Ports Abound
but Some Difficulty in Getting
1 . Return Loads Experienced.
Lacking only telegraphic confirma
tion of the price, arrangements are
now complete for the construction of
four steel steamships of 6000 tons by
the Albina Engine & Machine Works
for a group of Scandinavian business
men. .
Following a conference late Friday
night attended by the Scandinavian
business representatives in this city,
William Corn toot, president of the
Albina Kngine & Machine Works;
Kraery Olmsteati, president of the
Northwestern 'National bank, and Ar
thur C. Callan, secretary-treasurer of
the Pacific International company and
director of the Columbia-Pacific Ship
ping'company, a telegram was sent to
the interests in Scandinavia, - stating
the prie agreed upon for the ships
here and asking confirmation. A re
ply to this cablegram was expected
hourly, and little doubt is held that
the terms will prove satisfactory.
The ordw placed by the Scandina
vians for ships marks the practical
completion of their business, and the
party will leave this week, for New
York and home, satisfied that they can
buy whatever they need without going
Outside of this section. During the
past week they have been ordering
foodstuffs in almost unheard of quan
tities, with little discussion of price.
It is expected that the ships will be
placed in service as soon as completed
in the proposed line from Portland to
Scandinavia to carry the food products
Of the northwest to- northern Europe.
Until this service is established with
its own vessels, the supplies ordered
by the Scandinavians will be carried by
four steamers which the United States
shipping board has agreed to allocate
to this work. It is also rumored that
more ships from the Scandinavian
countries may be added to the run.
The most serious problem confronting
the proposed steamship line from this
port to northern Europe is the matter
of return cargoes. Little trouble will
be experienced in finding plenty of
export cargo bound for Scandinavian
countries, but few Scandinavian prod
ucts are used in this section. The
problem may be solved by including
South American cities as ports of call
on the return trip to Portland.
8 800-Ton Steel Steamer Leaves To
day With Cargo of Flour.

Evans, recently completed by the Colum

ship company.

to Portlanders by his long service as
chief officer of the turbiner Great
Northern, is master of the Mount Evans.
His chief steward is Hex McNicholas,
well known because of his long asso
ciation with the McCormick ships.
Captain Morse entertained a number
of his friends at a farewell dinner
aboard the new vessel Friday night.
J-ispositlon of Tidclands at Tacoma
Will Be Decided.
TACOMA, Wash... July 19. (Special.)
Condemnation by jury of the lands
wanted for a Tacoma port district will
begin in Superior Judge Clifford's court
August 11. Judge Clifford ruled that
the lands are a public necessity. Fifty
jurors will be called on a special panel
to try the case.
James M. Asshton.. owner or repre
nentative of all the land in question,
opposed the condemnation of the 240
acres. He contended that such action
would tend to rob him, as the area
would become more valuable as soon
as the port district is created, being
thus made more desirable for indus
trial sites. The court overruled him.

British Shipping Men View With Ap

LIVERPOOL, July 19. (Special.)
The Cunard Steamship company has en
tered upon a great shipbuilding pro
gramme, in fact greater than any Brit
ish line has embarked upon httherto.
One of the principal reasons is to meet
American competition. Shipping men
here no longer view, except with appre
hension, the great strides made by
America in the race for the world's big
gest mercantile fleet.
Although the officials of the Cunard
company declined today to make any
statement to The Oregonian corre
spondent on their supreme efforts to
create a huge mercantile fleet, inquiries
proved that they are keenly alive to
what is happening1 in America. The
old attitude of dismissing what the
Americans may do on the seas la now
past- history. In its place a "watch my
neighDor" policy has been adopted.
Sir Alfred Booth's recent visit to
America strengthens this view. It
estimated that the Cunard and its allied
companies now have under construction
more than 500.000 tons, which is greater
than all their tonnage before the war.
The details are being kept secret.. But
it is learned on good authority that 50
vessels are being built and tha
all the present Cunard services
will be strengthened and others will be
opened up.
For the trans-Atlantic service the
liners under construction average 20.000
tons, while a smaller type of.vessels is
being built for the .eastern and Aus
tralian trade. It is considered prob
able that a regular service between
Liverpool and Hamburg will be opened.
