COOS BAY TIMES, MARSHF1ELD, OBEGON.THURSDAY JULY
Rose City Compelled to Secure
Additional Shipments of
FROM THE PUGET SOUND
Commodity Has to Be Transported
By Rail From AVestern Wash
ington to the Port.
Portland at present Is In the throes
of a coal famine, and during the
pinch tho Redondo Is bringing ship
ments from Puget Sound. Tho Port
land Telegram has the following In
connection with It:
Three hundred tons of coal were
brought from Pugot Sound to Port
land by the steamer Redondo, which
arrived last night on her third round
trip on this route. In addltidn to
the fuel, she carried 30 tons of
paper, a quantity of hides and house
The operators of the Redondo have
made arrangements for her to bring
regular shipments of coal from the
Sound, the consignment she carries
this trip being among the first of
fered. It comes from tho Black Dia
mond mine, in western Washington,
and Is said to be equally as good as
any coal which has been placed on
the local market. At any rate tho
navigation company has concluded to
handle the product until the fuel
shortage gets les acute.
With the Redondo carrying coal
from the North and the steamer
Breakwater from Coos Bay, it is be
lieved plenty of fuel will be on hand
to met all requirements until the
deep, water colliers arrive from the
Antipodes, Japan and Europe. Some
of these are believed to be nearing
tho Columbia river. There are more
than twenty vessels In the fleet, and
they have something like 0,000 tons
The Redondo and the Breakwater
arrive at Portland once every week.
During tho next two or three months
they will handle an aggregate of
C.'OOO or 7,000 tons of coal, and will
bring It In at such regular Intervals
as to make the product available
whenever needed. In tho next GO
dys many of the off-shore colliers
will be putting in an appearance.
The Redondo will sail for Puget
Sound Thursday night on tho return
voyage. Captain Bendegard, her
master, says he is more than pleased
with tho manner In which business
of the lino is improving. He ex
plains that on every successive trip
tho steamer has been taking out
greater quantities of freight, and if
traffic continues to increase at the
present rate it will be necessary for
the company to add another steamer
to the line. Much of tho freight tho
steamer will take out on this trip
will be made up of goods for trans
shipment on tho Sound to Alaska.
Tho Redondo will connect nt Seattle
with tho Hyades, which is scheduled
to sail for Nome and other Alaska
