The Seaside Lumber Company will
not operate untl after New Tears. The
shut down la occasioned by the raise
of lumber rates between Portland and
San Francisco, a raise that could not
be met from the coast to Portland
When the condltons became apparent
the' company at once closed down the
works and threw out big San Francis
co orders. Effort was made to transport
lumber by water to the Bay City, the
plan being to ship the -cargoes from
fclavel. but ,the Idea was, abandoned
w hen the railroad people,"ca.me to the
millmen's relief. By acting promptly th
company has retaken the prderi thrown
out, and they will be handled by rati
the first part of the year.
Keith Lackey, for some time past
assistant occountant in the office of
Fisher Bros., has resigned and will go
into business on his own account. He
will engage in the brokerage, insur
ance and general commission business,
in which line he sees a good opening m
this field, and his friends and acquaint.
ances are confident that .'he will make
a success of the venture ' Mr. Lackey
is thoroughly conversant with the de
tails of the business In Ihlch he Is to
embark, and this knowledge, together
with a happy faculty of making friends
and retaining them, Will doubtless
bring a large measure of success. . (

Seaiborg Packing Company will operate
a new cannery neIt season the con

will be employed wherever possible.
The company has been securing a num

Charter rates are steadily increasing,
ant before the season is ended the in
dications are that, they will be back
to a pretty respectable figure. Wednes
day the British bark East African
turned down an offer of 20s 6d to carry
, a grain cargo to the United Kingdom.
The day before the owners of the Glen-
es'illn refused an offer of 20s for the
same kind of business. Good offers are
being declined almost every day, and
tt is believed that all the spot ships
will be engaged before many days
elapse. The only vessels in the river
not chartered are the Glenesslln, East
African and Bed Rock Those engaged
ar the Chrlstel, oreparing to load, and
the Europs which will complete her
irralu enrgo this week. From the ap
pearance of things Portland will soon
be short of available tonnage. Two
more vessels are about due there, how.
ever, from San Francisco. They are
the British ships Andorlnha and the
ncaiiis. One reason for the Improve
jrtent of tlie'pfttes Is believed to be part
ly attributable to the fact, that many
of (ho big windjammers are leaving
San Francisco in ballWt.i The owners
