THE SUNDAY OREGONIAN, PORTLAND, JUNE 25, 1922
Owner Agrees to Sell Land
Needed for'Pier Shed.
OFFER IS RECONSIDERED
E fracture 200 Feet Tjong and Di
vided Into Two Sections to
Th prospect of litigation con
eenrlng' about an acre of waterfront
wanted by the commission of public
docks at the northwest corner of the
terminal No, 4 tract, waa eliminated
yesterday through "the consent of
William Gatton, owner of the strip,
as well as a tract of adjoining prop
erty, to sell direct. The piece of
land, which Is triangular In shape,
will square the terminal filte at the
corner and lacllltate the completion
of the north ehed on pier No. 1.
Negotiations at fine time were
halted through the declination of
Mr. Gatton to consider an offer made,
so the commission concluded to re
sort to condemnation, but Mr. Gat
ton's reconsideration of the matter
permits the transaction to be con
cluded at once and impetus will be
given plans of the commission for
the new shed.
Fill to Be Completed.
A start Is to be made this week on
completing a fill for the shed, one
of the Port of Portland dredges be
ing assigned to the work. The con
struction project calls for a shed
about 600 feet In length, which will
be divided into sections approximate
ly 200 feet long. Hollow tile for the
walls and other features will permit
ventilated storage, though the space
will be available at other times for
wheat and various commodities. In
connection with the shed the dock
at the outer end will be finished, af
fording an additional water frontage
of 300 feet, so there will be berthing
space 600 feet long on the river end
on the pier, sufficient for the largest
ohip now making port.
Ventilated Storage Planned.
The ventilated storage Is consid
ered because of the demand for as
sembling fruit for water shipment,
while the need at times for more
space for wheat when the grain ele
vator and present grain warehouse
are taxed, makes the new structure
doubly important. As regards fruit
storage the commission has gone
into the subject In detail, not alone
as to the amount handled during the
last season In the way of apples, but
what has been moved on Puget
sound, also possibilities of the com
ing season. It Is believed that with
ventilated -storage rather than re
frigeration, all requirements can be
met and when fruit is moved from
the storage other freight can be as-

- Lighthouse Thought Safe.
Concern for the , safety of the
lighthouse at the mouth of the Wil
lamette river, piling beneath which
has been loosened by scouring as
a consequence of the annual freshet,
was felt less than a week ago, but
now it is believed the structure will
withstand the strain. The river
gauge showed 19.9 feet above zero
here yesterday morning, a decline
of throe-tenths of a foot, and the
forecast is for 19.6 feet today, 19.1
feet tomorrow and 18.5 feet Tues
day. At Lewlston the river fell
eight-tenths of a foot and at The
Dalles nine-tenths for 24 hours end
ing at 8 o'clock yesterday morning.
GUI MERGER PLANNED
TIMBER-DRYDOCK MOVE IX
Massett Company, Ltd.-, and Los
"Angeles Work Out Details
(Copyright, 1923. by the Public LedErer
company. Published by Arrangement.)
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24. (Spe
cial.) Plans for a $10,000,000 mer
ger of the Massett Timber company
Ltd., of the Paclflo northwest, and
the Xios Angeles Shipbuilding and
Drydock company have been worked
The proposition was boomed by Ti.
Buckley and Norman R. Whitall, of
Vancouver, B. C, directors of the
timber company, and Fred L. Baker
and Er?e M. Leaf, president and gen
eral manager, respectively, of the
Obstacles In the way of an Inter
national merger involving proper
ties operating United States ship-
Plng board vessels are believed to
have been discussed, as well as erec
tlrm of saw mills, shingle mills, box
and lath factories and construction

Graham Bland, where the Massett
company's timber rights are. Is off
the Vancouver coast. Mr. Buckley
went there in 1917 with associates
and obtained logging rights to 110.-
ooo acres stretching 145 miles along
the water's edge.
The working plan of the merger
Is to ship rough-sawn spruce, hem-
JHck and cedar to the Los Angeles
harbor plant of the shipbuilding
company and there have it dressed
and manufactured Into boxes, shin
gles, laths and other products.
Another consolidation just com
pleted is to be known as the Van
Camp Sea Food company, Inc., and
is capitalized at 6,000.000. The
principal Interests merged are the
Van Camp Packing company, Inter
national Packing corporation, Niel
son & ; Kittle, Ltd., and the White
Star Canning company. These con
cerns now operate four plants at
Los Angeles harbor and two plants
it San Uiego.
n addition, the new consolidation
has acquired by purchase other
plants, the combined capacity of the
ntire holdings representing .80 per
cent of the packing capacity of the
Frank .Van Camp, formerly presi
dent of the Van Camp Packing
company, Is to be president and gen
eral manager of the new corlpora-
Lioti, wnue otiiera wno will DO ac
tively identified with the concern
are B. Houssels and R. D. Steele, 6f
the International Packing corpora
tion; C. O. Nielsen, of Nielsen &
Kittle, Ltd., and "W. J. King, of the
White Star Canning- company.
As same equipment can be used
for packing sardines and tuna, and
the run of these fish occurs at dif
ferent times, the plants of the Van
Camp Sea Food company,. Inc., can
be kept running virtually through
out the year. Instead of a few
months a year, as Is the case with
fish packing elsewhere.
After her next voyage, which Bhe
starts Saturday for San Diego and
way points, the steamer. Senator of
the Admiral line win receive her
annual overhauling. Bhe will be
lifted on drydock here. The oppor
tunlty is afforded without laying
up the ship, since the schedule
changes slightly with the turbiner
H. F. Alexander being placed in the
Puget sound-California service July
11. While no changes In ships are
to be made here, the addition of the
H. F. Alexander will result In a
rearrangement of sailings at San
Francisco and that affects the Port
land schedule. -

"Which Recently Gained Control
- of Important Mines.
SAX FRANCISCO, June 24. James
B. Sexton, acting president of the
Eureka & Nevada Railroad com
pany, announced yesterday that
a deal had been concluded for
the sale of the road to a syndicate
of Detroit automobile interests and
Philadelphia capitalists whom he
said he understood were the group
who have gained control of the
Eureka-Croesus silver and lead
mines in Nevada.
- Mr. Sexton said he had heard re
ports that, Henry Ford was con
nected with the transaction, but
knew nothing of it himself. The
deal was concluded by telegraph
w.ith H. M. Briggs, a New York at
torney representing the purchasing
The railroad is a 92-mlle narrow
gauge line running between Eureka
and Palisade, Nev., where It connects
with the Western Pacific and Cen
tral Pacific railroads. Ogden Mills
of New YoVk and the George Whit
tell estate of Saji Francisco are
among the principal owners of the
road. The purchase price was re
ported to have been In the neighbor
hood of $750,00.
Mr. Sexton said the property of
the Eureka-Croesus Mining company
undoubtedly was very valuable, as
recent discoveries of ore worth sev
eral millions had been made. TJie
transaction for the sale of the rail
road will not be completed for some
time, he said. Under the laws of
Nevada a railroad cannot be bought
by any Individual, the statute re
quiring the purchaser to be another
railroad, according to Mr. Sexton, so
he was unable tostate what definite
form the sale finally would take.

1922 of at least a quarter of a

that ran Into millions last year. '
With the belief that the demand
for sugar is going to exceed the
supply, which this year will be
about 632,000 tons, optimism has re
placed pessimism In the Hawaiian
The rising trend of th market
during the last month is accepted
as conclusive proof, that the con
sumption of sugar Is Increasing.
Haws are selling at 4.61 as against
3.66 a pound last January, an ad
vance of about a cent a pound.
Prices are confidently expected to
go higher as sales of futures indi
cate. July shipments have brought
4.75 in New York. . .
General expectation is that sugar
will go to 5 cents a pound within
60 days and observers believe that
as the autumn approaches the
shortage will become more pro
nounced, tending to advance - the
price above 5 cents. - With sugar
selling at 4 cents or better, most
Island plantations will return a net
profit of -about half a cent a pound.
