NEW PLAN WILL BE SAVING
"Work to He Beguii at Once
Boilers Badly Out of Itepair
Because of Hasty Depart
ur Froth the South.
Besides having her boilers repaired
when she goes to Portland, the govern
ment dredge Chinook, is to have oil
T&uralng apparatus installed.
J. S. Boyle, Portland representative
of the National Oil & Transportation
. Company, recently visited the Chinook
and made an estimate of the probable
cost of changing the furnaces of the
. '"digger" so that she could use the.
new fuel It is thought the burners
will be put in under a separate con
tract from the boilers, another set of
bids being called for. The proposition
now is to have tanks erected at Fort
Stevens and store the fuel oil there,
as its handling would be facilitated
more advantageously than If it were
hauled from the stations 'on the river.
The saving in the fuel bill each year
by the adoption of oil is calculated to
reach t40,00 or 50,000,
The boilers of the Chinook are gen
erally la bad shape, but It Is thought
they can be placed In good condition
again within a week's time after she
goes up. In some places where
patches wer put on before the vessel
left Mare island, the toiler Is leaking
freely. The patches will likely be torn
off and placed on the Inside and made
to last until she finishes the coming
season at least.
