Work of loading lumber Into the hold
of the transport Buford, lying at the
Eastern . and Western mill, was begun
yesterday afternoon shortly after the
vessel's arrival in the harbor. 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.

principally for making government im

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."
WU1 BaU Abort March. 10.-
On the other hand Capt A. P. Berry,
transport quartermaster, stated posi
tively yesterday afternoon that the
Buford would return to San Francisco,
where arrangements had been completed
for her t? take on board (00 marines

The Dlx has been held at Astoria for
the past two days owing to the rough
condition of the bar. She is the govern
ment transport which has Just finished
loading a cargo of forage and lumber
here for the Philippines.
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
