Thar are nort tramp steamers an
route to Portland at the present time
than to any other port on the Pacific
coast, so that In point of shipping by
steamer to foreign ports, the Oregon
metropolis holds the lead, erea Ban
Francisco falling behind. Figures com
piled yesterday show that the total net
register tonnage of all foreign steamers
bound for Portland, San Francisco snd
Pugat Sound porta, la 69.916, of which
6.il I tons are to the credit of Port-'
land, 4.97 to San Francisco and 18,111
to the several Puget Sound ports com
bined. Thus It will be seen that Port
land leada by a good substantial margin.
Most of the tramp steamers on the
way to this port are under charter to
load lumbar for the orient, four being
under charter to load wheat for Europe.
These are the British steamers Strath
nalrn and Strathflllan, from San Fran
cisco; the British steamer Imogen, from
Antwerp, snd the Norwegian steamer
Otta. from Vladivostok. The Strathfll
lan left the Bay City Friday night, and
la expected to arrive bars Monday or
The steamers now on ths list
coming here to load lumber aggregate
a total of 22,266 tons net register, but
there Is a question of the British steam
sr St rath more earning hers owing to
her having been seriously damaged In
collision off Hongkong, wherefore har
tonnage haa not been Included In the
figures given above, otherwise the total
would be still greater.
Other tramp steamers en route to load
lumbar are the Crusader. Wandsworth,
Apollo. Fulham and Vermont, all fly
ing the British flag; the Jethou and
Terje Viken. under Norwegian colors,
and the German steamer Eva. All of
these, excepfjgha Jethou, will coma In
ballast for. the express purpose of car
rying away the product of the sawmills
hare. The Jethou brings a cargo of
cement from the Belgian port, and waa
chartered to load lumber several weeks
The British steamer Hasel Dollar la
now In port ready to begin loading
wheat for Europe, while three steamers
have already been started for Europe
this season laden to the hatches with
grain from the big fields of the Colum-
bta river basin.

Aa a venture Mr. Johnston Invested a

result thst he waa soon convinced that
Portland knew a good thing when they
