New Customs Tug Surpasses All
Expectations on Initial Spin
on the Bay.
The customs tug Patrol had her trial
trip yesterday and the trim little vessel
surpassed the expectation of the cue
tome house staff. Bhe eat high In the
water at the time of the trial, having
no ballaiit aboard, and her performance
wae highly satisfactory. The Patrol
waa out on the river for a couple of
houra. and ae ahe gleamed over the bay

On boerd at the time of the trial were
Inspector Carl M. Green, who hae been
In the city for the pant 10 days; Hon,

The Patrol wag first run aero the
river to Knappton, a distance of just
about five nilli-a. Bhe went across In 21
1-2 mlnutee and made the return In 82
minutes. Then ehe waa run up to the
Tongue, going the distance up In 20 mln
uts with the tide and returning In 22
wluufes against the current. Half an
hour was spent In maneuvers and the
launch dumonstrated her ability to turn
utmost In her own length.
"I ant very well plrased with the lit
tle boat," said Inspector Green to an
Antorlan man. "Bhe aurpaseea my ex
pectations In every respect and proved
herself all that Is needed In this harbor.
While my data Is nt sufficient to moke
an exact statement aa to her speed, I
believe she will easily go 10 knots an
hour. Iter performance today speaks
will for your local builders, who are
turning out first-class boata."
When the Patrol is fitted up and
trimmed down In the water properly
and her engines ore worn more she will
show mu- h better speed. Bhe Is pro

Harbor Lines Matter.
James W. Welch, president of the
Chamber of Commerce, baa received a
blue print map from Major Langfltt
showing the harbor survey of 1900. On
this map is a red line mark which
probably Is Intended to represent Major
Langdtt's Idea of a proposed change.
According to thla marking, the harbor
line is extended considerably farther
out In the river opposite the East End
and possibly Is far enough to meet the
demand for shipping facilities.

Astoria, Oregon, for a change of harbor

Costs Too Much
As a Consequence, the American
Lumber Company Will Not "
Build This Year.
Some month ao articles of Incorpor
ation of the American Lumber Com
pany were filed In the office of the
county clerk, but the company has not
yet taken any step that would indicate
a determination to construct a mill.
Fntnk Patton, one of the principal
stockholders, when asked what the com
pany purposed doing said:
The American Lumber Company
will build a big mill here, hut not Just
at the present time. We are wfciting
for people to come to their senses. Just
now the price of machinery la altogeth
er too high. I believe that moderate
price will prevail some time daring
the coming year, and by waiting until
that time to put in our mill we can save
a big sum of money. Our failure to
commence work heretofore haa been
due solely to the very high price now
demanded for iron and steel product of
