Gangs are working at three hatches and it is estimated that they will handle about 150.000 feet of lumber a day... At this rate the cargo will be aboard within the next week or 10 days. Great stacks of lumber have been plied along the outer edge of the dock and so arranged that it can be handled with .more than ordinary rapidity. Al though never before used ss a lumber carrier, the Buford has all the latest improvements for taking on freight of every description. The powerful der ricks with which she Is equipped are being operated wlt.i regular precision conveying the unwieldly timbers into her expansive hold. Men stand on the dock adjusting chains to a collection of boards and no sooner has their work been completed than they are swung out over a hatch and swiftly lowered to the depths below, where another force of longshoremen Is ready to receive and stow them away where they belong. All yesterday afternoon and today a steady stream of the products of Ore gon's forests has been pouring down through the steamer's hatches. Best Grade of Lumber. The lumber is of the very best grade, as the government will accept no other kind. An expert Inspector is on the scene to represent the Interests of Uncle 6am, and ses that he gets the best that the soil and sawmills are capable of producing. But before being placed on the dock the lumber was care fully culled by competent mill men, and it Is very probable that a very small quantity. If any. of It will be rejected. The shipment consists of rough boards. Mil WIV UTBUU uu iicavj IUUUOI1 of varlcus dimensions, snd Is to be used principally for making government im provements In the harbor at Manila. Capt. Jesse M. Baker, local disbursing Quartermaster, says it is not definitely known yet whother any marines will be taken from Portland to the Philippines or not. He asserts that the. 600 who were 'reported coming here to take passage may come In accordance with the first arrangements made, or it Is possible that they will go to San Francisco and be taken by the Buford from that point. "It Is possible," he concluded, "that the transport will not carry any marines at all on this trip. At any rate nothing Is known about the matter locally."

While en route up the river yesterday afternoon from Astoria the French bark La Bruyere was chartered by the North western Warehouse company to load grain at Portland for the United King dom at 20s. The bark was out 212 days from New-castle-on-Tyne, and by reason of her long passage lost a good charter, which is said to have been 24s 6d. With the chartering of La Bruyere there la only one vessel now remaining In port on the disengaged list, snd that Is the Thts'clebank, which arrived yesterday afternoon. Those under charter for grain loading are the Red Rock. Mar chal de Turenne, La Fontaine, Magda lene, Armen and Verclngetorlx. This is a larger number than the combined engaged fleet of Puget sound snd San Francisco, and once more shows that Portland is shead of any grain shipping port on the Pacific coast La Bruyere's long passags was mainly due to contrary winds and se ven storms. After leaving Newcastle with -a general cargo she went to her home .port of Cherbourg, France, in or der to add to the mileage and receive a larger bounty from the government From there the voyage was resumed, and nothing of consequence occurred until Cape Horn was almost reached. The vessel ran Into s gale of great se verity, and a battle with the waves commenced. Nearly all the sails were stripped from the yards and the fore topgallant mast was carried away. By good ses&nanship the bark was made to weather the storm,, and escaped with no other serious damage. A small leak was sprung In the hull, however, bat this was soon patched up, and caused no trouble. f , It was decided to change the vessel's course, and abandon the Cape Horn route. Accordingly she was headed for the Cape of , Good Hope, and the bounty was' again added to very . materially. No .further incident of note happened until the mouth of the 'Columbia river was. reached. Arriving there a big gale was raging, and the bark was driven almost, to Cape Flattery. She fought her way down the coast, and again, was blown far to the northward. For 17 days she ws beating- around off the mouth of the river before a tugboat bad located faac. ' , ' .
