WOISY WELCOME SHOUTED Columbia River Corporation Starts Work on Last Hull Under Gov ernment Contracts. LAUNCHING OF TWENTY-SEVENTH HULL' OF THE 8800-TON FLEET, AT COLUMBIA RIVER SHIP-1 BLILDIXG CORPORATION'S PROPERTY, FEATURED BY PARTICIPATION OF GOVERNOR S Vlr K. Mrs. Ben W. Olcott,. -wife of Gover nor Olrott christened the hull of the West Hartland, launched yesterday. The vessel is the twenty-seventh steel r-.irrier of the S800-ton type the Colura hia River Shipbuilding corporation has contributed to the government's mer cantile fleet. The ceremony took place shortly after 1U30 o'clock. Though such af fairs are timed quite accurately, the hulls are not always controlled so as to ttart at the precise moment selected. The launching party was taken by sur prise when Walter Brown, greneral su perintendent, who was on the ground, shouted a warning and raised both arms to sip-rial "she is going.' Mrs. Olcott turned from facing her friends, chose the place, and broke the bottle squarely across the stem of the big ship, which began to gather speed for its plunge into the Willamette. Shlpynnl Men Shout Welcome. Men in the yard were joined by col leagues "over the fence" in the plant of the Northwest Steel company. In ac cording the West Hartland a noisy welcome to the coterie of floating shi lis. The sponsor was roundly congratu lated for her successful participation in the ceremony.

With the hull overboard and the lauiichinh' party gone, that particular part of the yard again became a bee hive, for men "turned to" to lay keel No. 3, which is the last actually ar ranged for under old contracts. hether the corporation is to lay down two additional hulls, under the rein statement programme, is yet to be de termined. Tmiby the plant boasts a combined payroll of 4300 names, whereas at the peak of its activity in the spring, KbOU were employed. With the. last hull go ing into place there is to be no further pruning. Two ways on the south side nf the plant are vacant, and of three on the north side one will be emptied the latter part of August, when hull No. 28 is f lotted, and early in ceptem- ter No. 2;i is to be out of the way. SHIP PLANT TO EXPAND NEW OWNERS OF VANCOUVER YARD TO RUSH BOATS. STRIKE STATUS IN DOUBT Demand Created by War Give Idea of Country's Need in Peace and Work Will Be Done Here. VANTOUVER, Wash., Aug. 9. (Spe etal. With the acquisition of the physica.1 property and business of the Motorship Construction company, which was one of Vancouver's busy war-time institutions, the Reed Engineering com pany, which has just been incorporated by Merrill . A. Reed and associates, making: plans for the extension of the plant to take care of the big volume of peace-time business. The Motorship Construction company was founded in 1917 by Mr. Reed and S. i?. Hewett, the latter being subse quently-succeeded by James W. Dough erty. Later the Oregon Shipbuilding company was consolidated with the company, AV. M. Cmbdenstock being chosen secretary, Mr. Dougherty treas urer and Mr. Reed president. During the war the Motorship Con strut-tion company executed on account of the United States shipping board, emergency fleet corporation, the larg est contract for steel lifeboats let on the Pacific coast. The company com pleted the contract in record time, maintaining an average daily outpu of ten completed boats. In addition cutters for the bureau of construe tion and repair of the United States raw. the tug Shishaldin for the Alaska Portland Packers' association. six trawlers on private account and othe mall craft were turned out by th company. , One department, previously used a an erecting floor for lifeboats, now will be used for. the construction canoes.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK GOOD Contracts for Space Signed That Extend Into Xext Year, but - All Fleets Will Be Busy. LOXGSHOREMEX EXPECTED TO COXFIXE DEMANDS TO PAY. Portland Unions May Decide to Ne gotiate or Possibly Accept Puget Sound Settlement Guesses are bing made along the beach on the outcome of negotiations with longshoremen as a consequence of emands made for an increase in the wage scale. It would not surprise many the men discarded most of the spe- ial charges included in the demands nd decide to negotiate' on a basis of $1 n hour on all work, except bulk wheat. which is rated at liO cents higher, and 1.50 overtime. " . - Another feature up for speculation in the situation is whether the longshore men will consent to cast their lot with he Puget sound longshoremen and ac cept the same pay and conditions. On he occasion of the last general long- horemen's strike on the coast Portland and Columbia river longshoremen were ailed out in sympathy, although con tented with their ' pay of 55 cents an hour. In the end, Washington and Cal- fornia longshoremen settled with their employers Independently, and it so hap pened that the pay was lowered, so ongshoremen . In Oregon returned to work at 50 cents an hour. There is said to be a marked disinclination on the part of some of the men to aim for a uniform rate of pay, preferring to deal ndependently with their own employ ers. . . The commission of public docks had conference yesterday as to the de mands. The interest of the commission s not that of actual employers, but is due to the fact they maintain four deep-water terminals and the pay of ongshoremen figures in the general cost of handling cargo. As a result of he conference the commission will no doubt be represented in any future movement dealing with the matter. The attitude of the employers is tak en to indicate they will be guided by the action of the men as to dealing in concert with Puget sound. If the men refuse to participate actively in the eeting, it is reasoned, they may de cline to accept its terms. Under the former agreement with the men Oregon employers could negotiate with the longshoremen and refer the matter to the national adjustment com mission at Washington. The probabil ities are the longshoremen will make known tomorrow their attitude and the present week may witness an appre ciable advance toward the goal of set tlement.

Owned by Henry Rothsf hild. A parrot, owned by Henry Roth schild. manager of Brown & McCabe stevedores, has laid an egg after 2S years of captivity and thereby earned the right to be classed in the feminine gendeT. In the past the bird has been designated as "he." according to the story that yesterday caused Question able glances to be directed at Mr. Rothschild. It was 28 years ago that Polly, then a mere infant in the feathered sphere, was presented to Mr. Rothschild by skipper, who brought the parrot from Mexico. Mr. Rothschild declares th parrot has all the accomplishments in speech of other birds and a few specia gifts as well. One of the favorite ex pressions of the parrot is to call for "three cheers for Grover." which Mr, Rothschild says, dates from the tim of the first campaign of Grover Cleve land for the presidency.

Mr. Whitney received notice from San Francisco yesterday that the chamber of commerce there is support ing - the movement in the interest of continuing ship construction on the coast ' in competition with ewstern plants, and the Portland chamber will be asked to consider the situation. It is expected that the FaVific coast cham ber of commerce will act as a unit in the matter. ; The builders are campaigning on the fact that the rate on steel bound for the orient is 60 cents on each 100 pounds from point of origin in the east to -Tacific coast terminals, whereas coast builders pay $1.25 to $1.37Ms on each 100 pounds. With the ocean rate added, Japanese can land steel at their , yards for $1.20. Identified with the new movement is every steei jam iiuni Puget sound to San Pedro, and it is asserted that - the fight will be car ried to Washington. It is understood that the new or ganization will suggest to the United States railroad administration that rates on steel be about 4 cents fiom Atlantic ports. 81 Vz cents from Pitts burg and 69 cents from Chicago. Since December 31. 1916, it is asserted, freight rates on steel have advanced 92 per cent prom Pittsburg and 105 per cent from Chicago. Under existing charges the cost of laying down steel for an 8800-ton vessel . here is said to . be 187,500.

Mr. O'Connor figures trial with four ships, allowing for detention at times, it will be 112 days from the time a ehip leaves Portland until sne starts her next voyage from here. During the past week the company was compelled, to decline to contract for 30.000 tons of cargo offered In Japan for transportation to Portland, an space having, previously been taken. On outbound shipments the company has managed to .contract for consider able business extending into 1920, while the bulk of the outbound freight tor steamers scheduled up to the. opening of next vear is largely provided. . "Ooeration of American ships .for American trade is proving itself and to my mind there is no reason to ex pect the United States fleet will be called on during the next few years to make a. greater division of business than is the case today, says Mr. o con nor. Everybody Has Good Chance. "It is the first time an all-American line has operated from the northwest, and so long as American shippers will accord their patronage, I am sanguine there can be no question of its perma nency. During the war period thn Pa cific trade was largely controlled by the Japanese, due to that country hav ing an abundance of tonnage, but with the entrance of other flags Into the peace time- trade it is being demon strated that there is no such a condition as full control ' being in the hands of one flag. s "There will undoubtedly always ex ist a condition through- which a certain percentage of the general trade will be controled, that from Japan by Japanese and that from - the United States by Americans, but all of it cannot be held by one fleet. American owners can compete so long as rates permit reve nues that will offset expenses. "Marine Xotes.
