..."Mistakes Will Happen"
An Important question relative to
shipment of lumber from Portland and
all other points In the Pacific coastwise
trade will be taken up for action at a
meeting of the Pacific Coast Lumber
Manufacturers' association to be) held at
Tacoma December 11. An Inspection
bureau to examine and pass upon all
coastwise cargoes of lumber before they
are shipped Is wsnted by many. There
la already a bureau of Inspection that
looks after cargoes for foreign ship
ment, and makes assurance doubly sure
that the lumber la up to the required
standard in every respect. Che present
effort Is directed toward establishing a
similar inspection of cargoes shipped in
the coastwise trade.

and Inducing lewd and dissolute people
to congregate in the building.

THIEF AMONG THE
LOCKERS OF Y. M. C. A.
Frank C. Houghton Is the Victim
of Well-Planned Robbery in
VALUABLE DIAMOND 13
TAKEN FROM LOCKED BOX
Police Believe Recant Crimes Are
the Work of Clever Ama
For three days city detectives have
been Investigating the mystsrlous theft
of a diamond ring valued at 1100 from
Frank C. Houghton, a olerk in the em
ploy of the o. R. N. Co., whose resi
dence Is at 101 Corbett street. The
ring, which weighs one and a half
carats, was stolen from a locker In the
V. M. C. A. gymnsslum Thursday be
tween 12 and 1 o'clock.
This robbery, in conjunction with the
burglaries and larcenies recently re
ported, has caused the detectives to be
lieve that there are now in Portland one
or more "gentlemen thieves" men who
dress neatly, move in good society and
surround themselves with safeguards
against suspicion of criminality.
Mr. Houghton has been a memDer or
the Y. M. C. A. for some time and is an
enthusiastic exponent of physical cul
ture.. He went to the building Thursday
to take a brief round of exercise and a
shower bath preparatory to luncheon.
After disrobing and donning his ath
lete's costume, he placed his clothing in
a locksr, which has. of course, a differ
ent combination from that of any other
It Is probable that the thief learned
this combination by remaining In the
vicinity and listening closely. A group
of young men is usually to" be found
near the lockers, and the thief would
have attracted no special attention. The
combination consists of a number of
turns to the right or left, or In both
directions, beyond a "smooth place," so
called, and may easily be learned by a
pereon watching attentively a few timea.
When Mr. Houghton had a rubdown
and returned to dress he discovered that
the ring was missing from his pocket
The theft was at once reported to the
management and then to the police.

of weeks later, reiterated their declara

ANNA'S LOW CHARTER.
Oerman Ship to Take lumber to Takn
Tor a Lump Snm.
Local shippers are wondering why the
owners of the German ship Anna char
tered that vessel to carry lumber to
Taku, China, at a rate that will be a
money loser. At leaat, the charter rate
reported from a reliable source is ons
that shippers say is a loser. Portland
has It that the Anna was secured for a
lump sum of 2.800 pounds sterling.
Shipmasters say that the vessel cannot
load, carry her cargo to Taku, dlscharga
It snd proceed to the nearest cargo port
for less than 1.000 pounds sterling.
Tins last named rate, ssy the ship
captains. Is a very low estimate. The
Anna will have to make a smart pas
sage, discharge In a hurry and proceed
to a cargo port at once In order to make
her expenses 116,000 or under. No cargo
Is shipped in sailing veaaels, excepting
Chinese cosstlng Junks, from Taku. so
the Anna will have to return to the Pa
cific coast or go to Australia In bnllast.
The Anna will not sail from this port
for several weeks.
It Is reported thai the cargo was
offered several times to the British ship
Oweenee. now In port, at the Anna's
rate. It was the opinion that the vessel
could He here and lose less money than
she would If she went to Taku for the
MENACE TO NAVIGATION.
er Altoni Damaged Mj Sunken
Barge Is Zewla Blrer.
Captain Harry Reeve, rnsster of the
steamer Altona, made a conrptalnt to
the United Statea engineers yesterday
sfternoon that a sunken barge In the
!. m river Is a mensre to navigation.
The barge Is lying under the Northern
Pacific bridge, and boats can get by It
only with the greatest difficulty. The
captain says the Altona damaged her
bow by striking the hulk.
The barge belongs to the Oregon
Round Lumber company. During a par
ticularly heavy freshet two weeks sgo
the vessel sank and drifted against
the bridge In such a manner thst It ex
tends over a good portion of the chan
nel. The United States engineers Informed
the Oregon Round Lumber company
that It would have to remove the ob
struction at once, which the company
promlaed to do.
It will be a difficult task to remove
the barge. If It should be blasted
there Is danger that the bridge pier
against which it Is lodged will be dam
aged. To raise it and tow it ashore Is
looked upon as being almost an Impos
sibility. HOW THEY DO IT.
