The pilot board at it has l-ea con

of Judge Taylor, The Port of Columbia
board come into being and thereby
ustes the old commission today. The
business transacted by the pilot board
yesterday was the outlining of report
to be made to the governor and the
conclusion of all business up to date.
Th, report will contain a lull account of
what ha been done by the late board,
tating the expenditures that nave been
made and will set tforth the present
conditions of the pilot service: the num
ber of licenses issued to pilots, the
number of vessels and of what tonnage
brought in and out, and the fees col
lected by Oregon pilots, a report con
cerning the condition of the pilot Schoon
er San Jose, belonging to the state and
the cost of maintaining her up to date.
The report is not yet in shape, but
when completed will close up the busi
ness of th old board to date. No steps
bare been taken towards a resignation
of the old board nor anything of the
kind. In fact, no notice was taken of
the bill in the way of questioning its
validity or it, effect upon the old board.
AH three members of the board were in
attendance. Included in the report will
be a list of the Oregon and of the Wash
ington pilots on the river.
It is considered by many that if the
supreme court holds the bill unconsti
tional they will also hold the repealing
slause unconstitutional and the wnote
bill would therefore collapse. In that
ease the old board would still be in
office and would continue to act
The time of commencement of action
by the lawyer, engaged to test the con
stitutionality of the bill is at preent
indefinite, and, until the new board
is organized and doth some act
which amounts to an injury or threat
ens an injury, it is not likely that any
thing will be done. The parties intend
ing to contest would have no basis until
such act or threatened act is committed.
