congestion of boats waiting to leave on

or two boats left These would .have
to make .slight changea (n the leaving

I was told by the owner of "one ofl the
boat line yesterday that it the ottnty
would- give them a free channel clear,
through all the bridge at 7 o'clock they
would all get away a( that time and
the drawa could be closed for art hour
without Inconvenience them." - '
It la admitted, i however that the
boats already have absolutely a free
channel, aa fne 'drawa. are rpened fn
atantly at their opmmand, and kept open
as long aa they desire. ' '
Capt A. B. Oraham and Herbert Hoi
man, represeatlng the river men,' met
yesterrtay and formulated a act of rules
with which It la aald the liver captalne
are willing to comply, and which will
be submitted to the county court; . The
rule provide thet the draw span may
be closed after the peaaage of eaeh boat,

"the boats can.bav the other 22 hour."
They fear the consequences of tempor

' "Th great growth of Portland' popu

gone before the drawa are cloaed for. the

then, could a greah many boats be wait

at the expiration of the hour!'' I have
beard no attempt at an explanation of
thi important point.
"It would aeein to me If It 1 impossi

"It would only make a difference of a
