Scarcity of Grain Ships at San
Francisco Due to War
PUGET SOUND SHORT ALSO
Portland's Small Craft Prices Must
Soon Go Over the Forty
Five Shilling Mirk.
The scarcity of grain ships Is becom-
ing a serious matter to shippers hav-
lng large quantles of cereals ready to
load for the Uniud Kingdom. Onlyt
ten grain-laden vessels have cleared i ,
from San Francihco this month, ac-
cording to the Call, and ihere are but'
three unchartered vessels suitable to
the Kiain trade In tha.1 port. In former
years If the grain fleet of sailing ves
sels proved inadequate to handle the
wheat yield, tramp steamt ri were char
tered and the wheat was sent to Its
destination at an Increased expense.
This year the government has charter
ed all the available steamers for Its
transport service, and grain dealer
have been compelled to depend on the
sailing fleet, which is unable to handle
The ship British Isles, the ship Cam
brlan Hills and the bark Ivanhoe are
the only unchartered vessels In Ban
Francisco available for the grain
trade, and there Is no doubt that thce
will be under a charter within a few
days. The Aristomene, Inveramsay
and Earl of Dunmore are lying In the
stream, loaded with grain, unable to
get away because of the scarcity of
sailors. September Is usually the ban
ner month of tho year for grain ship
ments. An a rule from thirty to forty
grain laden vessels clear for Europe
during that month. If all the grain
vessels in port get away this month,
the total numbr will be only sixteen.
Eppinger & Co. are chartering vessels
at I'ugt t sound and other coat ports
and sending them to this city In bal
last to load grain. Of course, charter
prices are rising rapidly under the;
circumstances, and charterers are of
fering SCs. and 37s., while In the early
part of the season 25s. or 30s. waa en
Grain merchants are making strenu
ous efforts to charter vesels and all

available ship are being pressed Into
aervlc. The British ship Leyland
Brothers has recently been chartered
at San Diego and Is on her way north
to load grain. Ships which come to
San Francisco taking chance of get
ting a cargo will make an extremely
profitable season, and If prices rise In
the European markets before the wheat
arrives, the grain dealers will not lose.
DC! WITH A PENSION.
Couchee, a bull terrier, went through
the Santiago campaign, braved the nor
rors of Montauk Plont and now ha a
pension, says the Boston Post.
Couche. besides being a veteran of
the Spanish war, has enjoyed, seven
state encampments. This dog Is the
property of Sergeant M. J. Hnran,
Company O, Ninth regiment, whose
home is In Worcester. When the Maine
went to he bottom of Havana harbor
In February, 1898, Sergeant Horan made
up his mind that there was going to be
a war, and having long been a member
of the Ninth he felt sure that be would
see ome royal service with that regl
ment. So he took his faithful Couchee
with him. The first time Couchee ap
pared In camp he wore a little blanket
0n which was Inscribed, ' I am going1
Cuba. Are yon with us?"
