The Ilrltlah bark Holt Hill, which
reached port Thanksgiving day from
Hamburg, come pretty nearly capturing
the long-passage record. She sailed
nearly a year ago. Soon after leaving
port the bark encountered a gale and
stormy weather delayed her at Inter-
vala until she was In the vicinity of
Cape Horn. The storm at this point
carried away her port bulwarks and
the small bouts, and the bursting of
a hatch allowed considerable water to
get Into the hold, which was filled with
cement, sulphur, etc. It was found
necessary to Jettison 800 tons of cargo.
The bark then put Into Montevideo
for repairs, sailing again August 4.
She encountered more bad weather and
lost two other small boats. She ar
rived off the Columbia November 18
and Captain Howes was put aboard.
Storma were raging, but the bark waa
never In any danger. Captain Parker,
master of the Holt Hal, is past 70. He
made his first trip to the Columbia SO
year ago, and 10 year later made an
other voyage to thl port. Something
more than 19 year bad elapsed since
the veteran mariner had crossed Co-
lumDia s oar. , ....
Among the matters now being con
sidered by City Attorney Smith Is the
question as to whether or. not the city
board of assessors ha the right to
assess Improvements on real estate. At
every meeting of the assessor many
complaints are registered, and the situ
ation has become decidedly oppressive
"When we make assessments to pay
for stret Improvements, the fellow own
ing a lot adjoining the corner lot kicks
bcause we assess hi house," said
Chairman Burns of the street commit
tee, explaining the matter. "The fel
low who own the corner lot has no
house on it. After the street Improve
ment 1b paid for, however, he may build,
nd the fellow owning the adjoining lot
sets up this contention. In. his com
plaint. Some ltiwyers tell us we have
no right to assess Improvements, while
others declare that we have this rlgljt
want a written opinion from, the city
attorney, o that, when the remonstra
tor appear before the board, w can
hov that opinion under their none
and aaaume a atand-pat attitude." The
city contend that Improvement may
be aaaeeaed, but It I evident that a
ault to determine the legality of the
matter I not unlikely. Mr. Smith will
prepare the opinion for the board. The
document will have the effect of making
him the butt of the remonatrator' ul
The teamhlp Ellerlc and Num
antla are due almost any time now from
the far eaat. The last-named will
doubtless take on a full cargo at Port
lund, but the Kllerlc may not load a
cargo t thl port. Exporter
declare that the regular liners of the
Portland-Asiatic company exact exces
sive freight toll. The rate on those
vessel 1 15 a ton. Of lute there bos
been leasened demand for coast food
stuff, and thl 1 alleged to be due to
the high freight rate. If exporter could
secure a rate of $4 a ton they would
be In position to do business, and de
dure that the traffic to the orient would
soon again resume it erstwhile pro
portion. It I stated In this connec
tion that some of the exporters have
charted tramp freighter to carry food
stuff and other freight to the orient,
and these tramp gladly accept $4 a
tun. The steamship Ellamy Is now
under charter to Balfour, Guthrie 4 Co,
It Is staled, to carry flour and barley
to the far east for $4. Other tramps
are offering and it Is not unlikely that
the Hurrlmun line will soon filnd it
necessary to meet the trans-Pacific
charge fixed by the owners of the
tramp. When the Ellerlc arrives she
will receive order here. Instructions
to that effect having been received yes
