Weown to Get New Pump and
Separator, While New Oil
Burning Plant Goes in the
Golden Gate. .
' Advantage Is being taken by Captain
0. W. Hosf ord. . head of the HoBford
Transportation company, of the , utfual
dull season during the holidays to tie
up the ' steamer Weown. one of the
- towboats of the fleet.: to make some
innovations, and the Steamer Golden
- Gate, operated by tne Portland & Tilla
mook Navigation company of which
Captain-Hosf ord Is vice president and
manager, will also have several changes
Qiade in her. - v
While she is tied up the steamer
' Weown will have a new pump Installed
and a new separator for keeping the
. boiler clean will be placed in her. The
Changes will take but a few days and
she will be ready to resume towing as
' soon. as business in that line picks up.
On her next trip to this port the
Golden Gate, operating between Port
"'. land and Tillamook, will be tied up at
the Central dock.' where she will -have
new old burning plant installed to take
the place of her present coal burners.
The tanks are being built by the Port
land Boiler Works and are nearly com
pleted, their capacity being 'about 100
barrels. It is probable that , the work
of placing tha tanks and other appara-
1 tus for burning oil will start next Sat
unlay and the Bteamer wlll .be laid up
v here for one trip: ..
: In addition to the oil burning plant
the Golden Gate will have an electric
light plant installed. The dynamo is
: i now being bought and will have a ca
: paolty for furnishing juloe to at least
. 4ft. lights, which will also Include a
search light of; the most tup-to-data

The tariff commision will be a gov
ernment institution, where from year
to year data and information required
In such, work will be sorted, catalogued
and digested In such a way as to be
rcadv for Instant use. It will be to the
tariff what the congressional library
is to literature. You can send a note
to the library, saying you are working
upon a certain subject and you are im
mediately provided with all the best
reference books . and records on inai
topic. ; . ..
Cost of Production Obtainable.
Without such a library how long, how
hopeless, a task would It be to obtain
full and accurate information by run
ning through a volume here, and -volume
there and skimming ihrougn a ijie oi
newspapers without system and without
knowledge as to what might have been
overlooked! It Is in such a helter-
skelter fashion, however, that tariffs
must be made if a commission is not
established. The countries of Europe, Lsuch
have tariff bureaus- where all records
of schedules are kept and where data
Is constantly gathered and kept up to
date. At a moment's notice complete
information retrardlne the cost of pro
duction of any given, article, in anjft
trtvpn r.oimtrv can hn obtained. -
What difference does it make whether
Democrats or Republicans are engaged
In tariff legislation? The work cannot
be properly accomplished without the
facts upon which it is based. Without
a tariff, commission, the making of i
tariff must be based upon such know
ledge as the" various members are able
to obtain, and inevitably, In such' event,
the Interests of one section of the coun
try as against the interests of another
arise' in arguments that often over
shadow the meagre facts that may have
been produced. .. "
Even Aldrich Hisses Boms Things.
Senator Aldrich probably has a greater
knowledge of the intricacies of the tariff
than any 'other man in America,; yet
he cannot know all the details .of more
than a few important schedules, ' : The;
vast amount of data and Information
that must go into the making of a tariff
can be obtained by no individual or com-
The Greatest Living Colorature Soprano
mittee temporarily engaged la such
research. It must be the work of a per
manent commission. I
Country Beady for It.
The, failure of congress to support
the permanent tariff commission idea
would be a step ckward and make
scientific revision impossible for years
to come. The matter has now pro
gressed to the point where the country
Is ready for it If the commission is
now made permanent its value will soon
be appreciated on all sides and it. will
never be discontinued. If for party
reasons chief of which apparently
would be that the Idea did not originate
with the Democrats the Democrats are
able to prevent. 1L man? vears mav
pass before a soienUf ic consideration
of the subject reaches a point where it
would be opportune again.
While the plankto nermlt a revision
of the, tariff schedule by schedule Is
necessary, the establishment Of a per
manent commission must come first. ,
Difficulties of Other Flans.
There ara. some, difficulties, too. eon-
fronting the schedule by schedule plan.
it would De easy to determine what
might be covered by the woolen sched
ule, ror instance, but when it comes to
matters t as the ' miscellaneous
schedule it .would, ba difficult to hold
the revision within bounds.
Then, in addition, comes the Jealousy
between men in congress regarding the
authorship of bills. Several men may
have measures designed to accomplish
the same purposed but different insomeltf business and society. It will mean
minor details. Each urges his own bill
and fights for it because he wants the
law to bear his name. These bickerings
and jealousies often actually stand in
the way of speedy and successful legis
lation. -" . t - .
Tha Panama CanaL
The president' was enthusiastic re
garding the Panama 'canal", which Is
just beginning to appear on the horizon
of the average American as one of the
greatest causes for national pride. He
displayed his vital interest la its future
meaning, to the American people by his
amazing knowledge of the most minute
details of the tremendous work knowl
edge fostered by his intimate connection
with its construction almost since Uncle
Sam undertook the world task.
The greatest effect of the opening ot
the canal, in the president's opinion, as
it will be felt by tha average American,
will be in the reduction of the transcon
tinental transportation rates. This will
draw he country closer together. The
orange growers in southern California
who like to wear a New England brand
of Shoes will quickly feel its effect
The man employed- in a New England
shoe 'factory who- likes California or
anges will soon realize the value of the
canal to him. The milkman, in Seattle
who. buys his bottles in Pittsburg will
suddenly become aware that the Panama
canal has transported the glass factory
in respect to freight ; rates half
aoroes the continent.
; So it will go through all tha branches
increased activity all around, with closer
relations between the- Pacific and At
lantic coasts. The central states will
quickly reflect its benefits.
Most Insure Eilpplny Competition. '
One point absolutely' essential is that
the government take adequate steps to
insure competition and prevent the own
ership of the steamer lines using tne
canal, by transcontinental railroads. The
coastwise shipping business ot una
country is confined by law to American
ships, and so traffic between Atlantic
and Pacific coasts, being between Amer
ican ports, will be confined to Ameri
can ships, and there will be no foreign
competition. This insures an enormous
development of tha American snipping
industry. t
'V national Sentiment Gratified.
But the greatest source of pride,
though perhaps sentimental, lies in the
fact that- where four "great nations
failed through four centuries pf en
deavor, the United States has succeeded,
Columbus first dreamed of a western
Dassaee to tha orient in 1517; Saavodra,
tha SDanlsh engineer and member of
the Balboa expedition, formed the first
definite plan for the canal; King rnuip
of Portugal next contemplated tne tasa;
then came England, which gave way to
France, and France in turn, facing ran
are, in 1904 surrendered the vast under
takina- to tha United State. V
