Rose City Holds World Record
for ; Mammoth" Lumber and
With record cargoes of wheat, end
lumber going out of this port during the
present season,' oh the British Steamers
Harlow and Algoa. It la thought that
another will be established for a single
cargo of barley when the British steara
er Harpalion loads here the latter part
t next month. The Harpalion wrfl
tome here In ballast from Valparaiso to
load under charter of Strauss VCo,and
the ts expected to take an,, unuauauy
large cargo of barley, as She ,la a vessel
of 8669 tone net 'i.?'- -' ffc. , .
By all present indication this will
be the record barley year, for up to
date there baa been a great deal more
of thatv grain shipped by the sea -route
than last year, which" was the banner
year..-. There were.. J,74.St -v.: bushels
shipped during the Cereal year of 181JS
IS, while almost half that amount will
have been shipped out Of here by No
vember I this yw. -ft ''.A
Although the season for shipping bar
ley atarted late last year, the cargoes
Wo Europe and California went out stead
ily and they are doing the eaine thla
season with the result that with the
.larger cargoes that are being shipped
so. far this season, It la expected that
this cereal year will beat the last one,
' which was the record, and also the first
shipping - season for water shipments
during a period of two years.--Up
to the first of the present- month
there were 874.888 bushels shipped off
.shore and to California, while for the
same period last year the shipments to
those places amounted to .111,884 bush
els, aeocrding to figures compiled at tho
Merchants' exchange. To November 1,
last year .the shipments were 888,884
bushess, while the indications are' that
this year they will, be 815,038 bushels,
approximately. To date ' there have
been S3 1 cars, or 481,000 bushels more
received for shipment this year than

' Paradoxical as It may seem, the har
bor 1s the, quletect. now that If has
been In the past 14 years, says Cap
tain Andrew Hoben, port surveyor, al
though there Is as much grain going
-out as ever and probably more. '
"Tne ' fact Is," says Captain Hoben,
"t he. harbor is quiet compared to other
years and there are not as many ships
here as . there would usually oe in
June, .there being .'only two of the
grain fleet In port now. . '
"This" makes the .harbor seem quiet
when it 1b considered that there used
to. be as "many as 20: or more ship
In port at one time for .grain cargoes.
And they would stay for several weeks,
the length of their sojourn depending
on whether they came in with cargo
or In ballast 1 ';':,.--.. :'.::.-

HEAVY PASSENGER TRAFFIC

Many passengers, . especially of . the

that have been applying for passage
on the Steam schooners going out of

In reply to your recent letter asking
for a statement covering, the first steps
in the plan for a SO foot channel to the
sea. mileage of shoals and Quantities to
be removed, the following general' In
formation is furnished. ; :.-;.i"'.;.:
"The river and harbor aot of March I,
1909, called for a. report on the Colum
bia and lower Willamette rivers below
Portland, 'with a view to securing a per
manent channel SO feet In depth and of
sufficient width.' During the fall of
1909 surveys were made by this office
of all shoals where depths of less than
20 feet were known to exist and apon
the results of these surveys a plan of
improvement was prepared and submit
ted for th action of congress.
"The project provides for a channel
SO foet deep and S00 feet wide between
Portland, end the head of the estuary
and not less than 24 feet deep thenoe
to the mouth of the river, with a abort
auxiliary ehannel eight feet deep and
800 feet wide on the west sine or swan
Island.; Ths work is. to be accomplished
partly by the construction of dikes and
revetments, but chiefly by dredging at
an estimated cost of $3,770,000, Includ

A demurrer was filed yesterday by

Frank C Stettler against the Industrial

it may be taken to the supreme court.
It is the contention of the commission
through the demurrer that Stettler has
