Shippers are expecting to be apprised
In the-next day or two that tie oriental
lines operating from Puget sound ports
will Issue orders at ones not to carry
flour tp Japan until the war cloud Wows
over. Some of them make the state
ment that orders to that effect are sure
to be Issued within the next 24 hours.
It Is argued that the Harrlmao inter-
ests are not alone In the reoent ruling,
but alt lines on the Pacino coast will
be affected alike. . -.
The Stentoir is scheduled to sU from
' Taooma on August 4 and the Tremont
live days later frem the same port.
Space for flour shipments to Japan have
been engaged on both vessels. A num
ber of the local shippers declare that
the companies ' may permit them to go
out. but orders will be Issued Imme
diately afterward that no more freight
will be accepted' for Japan.
- The opinion prevails generally among
the Portland shipping firms that R. P.
Sehwerin. manaaer of the Harriman
lines. Is likely, to -change his decision
not. to carry freight to Japan.' W. J.
Burns of Balfour, Guthrie A Co, this
morning said: ,-.'.'.
Mr. Barns' Opinion. .
"As near as I have been able to dis
cern Mr. Schwerin's decision Is not final,
'News Is likely to be received today ex
. plaining more fully the stand that fee
has taken, It Is very probable that the
. Nicomedla, the next steamer of the line
, to arrive, will be permitted to' carry
' cargo to Japan. If such should not
prove to be the case the probabilities
are that shipments will be made by
way of Puget sound. If ' those lines
should refuse to handle the freight,
tramp steamers . will - undoubtedly be
Chartered. Bo long as underwriters axe
willing to Insure the vessels and car
goes against loss by reason of war the
'owners and shippers are assuming no
Already freight, space has been en-
gaged on the Nicomedla for 1,000 tons
of flour to be shipped to Japanese ports.
' The contracts for the space have been
closed, and the shippers are of the opin
ion that they can force fie steamship
- company to make good its promise, mey
StaM that perhaps Manager Schwerin
did' not know anything about these con
tracts at the time he Issued his or
ders. and that when he Is apprised
of the true situation he will permit the
Nicomedla Jo sail with cargo consigned
' to Japanese porta. If he should not.
they declare that the Marrlman Interests
will have to make good the tosses which
the shippers sustain by reason of not
being able to market the product Some
or tnem are at ins turn or events, siav
Ing that there Is no occasion for shut'
ting down on the shipments consigned
to certain ports In the orient. If there
is no other way out of, the dilemma
they aver that tramp steamers will be
chartered to take care of the business.
Trunn Itiuun Available.
.; 1 It is said that they can easily be pro
cured for the reason that the under
writers will Insure them ' against any
danrer of loss In the event ' that the
vessel Is captured. : The declaration Is
-made that the 8.0OS tons which It was
. the Intention to ship on the Nicomedla
will make more than half a cargo ror a
tramp steamer, and that In a very short
time the carao could be completed. One
era the members of a leading firm stated
this morning that he will -charter a
steamer himself In the event that he
cannot make his shipments In any other
way. bo far as me snippers are con
cerned he explained that it would not
be a dangerous undertaking at all, as
' the underwriters would be the only ones
.who could possibly lose.
That the marine Insurance companies
do not view the situation with alarm-Is
shown by the fact that, the' war risk
rates are steadily declining. Yesterday
they had fallen to 1 per cent and to
i day's, quotations are expected to be even
lowerl Those la a position " to keep
posted are of the opinion that the rates
whi be down to I per cent wiimn tne

' Another rumor " Is going ' the. rounds
concerning the new steamer Telephone,
- which has been tied up at her dock for
almost a year. The statement was
made ' from ail apparently . authentlo
source this morning that the steamer
had been chartered to. run between hers
. and Astoria during the week of the
annual regatta at the latter place. Cap
tain Cochran, managing owner of the
vessel, could not be located to verify
The steamer Telephone has been an
enigma during the past year. At reg
ular Intervals of a month or so some
one has a new route mapped out for
the steamer. When the time comes for
her to be placed In commission, how
ever, : there Is no stir noticed around
the vessel. She Is still permitted to
lie Idle at the Haseltlne dock, where
she has been moored for several months.
, She Is fitted up with every convenience
for handling freight and carrying pas
sengers. - and Is generally regarded ' as
being one of the finest steamers In
. local waters. ' Why she has 'been per
mitted to lie idle so long a period of
time is one of the mysteries .which the
owners refuse to explain. -

"Heretofore," says John Klncald,
local agent of the line, "the Spencer
, has been placed in commission on Fri
day, and the management has about ar
rived at the conclusion that this Is the
reason that shs has ,met with so many
accidents. Once I remember 'she was
started out on her run on both Friday
and the lith of the month, and some
thing seemed to be going wrong with
the vessel continually. In view of what
haa happened I do not think it probable
that the steamer will re-enter commis
