that the war department was not plan

In executive session today, the Port
land Chamber of Commerce decided to
assume the trusteeship of a fund of
$100,000 to serve as a bonus for the es
tablishment of a line of steamships be
tween Portland and the Atlantic sea
ports, five Teasels 'to be constructed in
Multnomah county. ' ' ' -
Captain, Richard Chilcott, who Is pro
moting the enterprise, told the Chamber
that he would' build the ships, estab'lsh
a low, rate on lumber and flour and build
up a business that' would yield to the
company 978,000 to $100,000 a year and
confer a benefit of five times that sum
upon the people of Portland.
, The chamber decided to call for sub
scriptions of f 1000 each, $200 of this to
be. paid after the completion of each of
the , five ships. In that way- It was
pointed out,- the financial burden would
be made easier nd the same end se
cured. I,,'' .It' "
' The five' ships are to cost $900,000.
Captain ' Chilcott declared the $100,000

nor as a subsidy to, tha company , that
will build the ships. He said it was to
supply funds for such work as Is found
necessary' to build up a business which
Portland does- not now possess and has
to be -wrested from other points. .
