to mean that Mr. Wilson would fight

SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 16. (Spe

receive as many ships from the United
States shipping board as was at first
announced. According to authentic In
formation here today the number of
vessels for allocation to this seaboard
has been reduced from 78 to 48. The
division of operations says that a gen
eral misconception has existed regard-
ng the number of ships available for
the Pacific coast- A careful check has
resulted in the first reported figure
being reduced by 30.
The tonnag. In service, with that to
be assigned, according to shipping
board officials, will be ample to meet
the needs of this locality.
Two additional vessels today were
assigned to firms here. They are the
Halhway, MOO tons, to E. C. Evans &
Sons, and the Cockaponcet, $400 tons, to

was pointed out that should h. defl

January 1, 1920, according to an an
nouncement made by Governor Olcott
Just prior to his departure for Salt
Lake City, Utah, late this afternoon.
Mr. Thompson, oy his removal to
Portland, would be automatically dis
qualified as a member of the state
highway commission, as under the law
creating the commission on a of the
commissioners must come from each of
the three congressional districts. Be
cause of this law, Mr. Thompson sev
eral months ago notified the governor
that for business reasons he would re
move his residence from Pendleton to
Portland n January 1, and that after
that date would no longer consider
himself as a member of the commis
Man Selected Well Known.
Mr. Burgess is one of the best known
stockmen and farmers in eastern Ore
gon and has a wide acquaintanceship
throughout the entire state. From
1911 to 1915. Inclusive, he was a mem
ber of the state senate from Umatilla
county, resigning in April, 1916. He
has for many years been active as a
stockman and wool grower and has
been highly successful in business.
He has also taken a leading part in
Oregon's good roads campaign, and
prior to the special election on June
3 spent much of his time boosting for
the movement in his home section.
"I have had Mr. Burgess in mind for
some time as the successor to Mr.
Thompson," said the governor in an
nouncing his plans today.
Announcement Will Be Surprise.
"I might say In Justice to Mr. Bur
gess that he was not an applicant for
the position, that he has never spoken
to me in .regard to it 'and I have never
spoken to him. This announcement
will come as a complete surprise to
Mr. Burgess. I made up my mind sev
eral weeks ago that he would be the
"In order to give him an opportunity
to familiarise himself with the details
of the commission's work It occurred
to me it would be an excellent Idea
to announce that he would be the suc
cessor to Mr. Thompson.
'Mr. Burgess will not go on to the
commission until January 1. It has
been understood all along that Mr.
Thompson Is to remain with the com
mission until he removes his residence
to Portland.
High Alms for Oregon Held.
I am satisfied that Mr. Burgess will
have the entire confidence of the peo
ple of the congressional district which
he will represent. He is known all over
eastern Oregon as a man wno nas
made a success of his own business
and as a man who is eminently fair in
his dealings. I am certain he will go
on to the commission with high aims
for the development of Oregon's road
I consider a place on the srate nign-
way commission one of the most Im
portant aprolrtments which the exe
cutive office Is called upon to make.
A man of high Integrity, keen busi
ness Judgment, fairness and tact is
required. The plac. Is ono beset with
difficult problems. Mr. Burgess Is
eminently qualified to meet the many
requirements which go with the posi
tion, and I consider the people of Ore
gon will be fortunate it tcey secure
his services In this connection."
