Portland Waterfront Receives
News That Ditch Is in Con
dition With Rejoicing,
Vessel Will Tatk Away 600 Tons of
Cargo; Grace Line' Santa Cat
allna la Due Monday.
The Panama Canal will be open for
traffic tomorrow morning, a .delay of
three days having Jiten caused by the
slide in Culebra cut.
Hereipt of this news was the cause
of general rejoicing along the Port
land waterfront yesterday afternoon.
It came in a dispatch received from
the New Yoirk office of W. K. Grace &
Co., and Colonel Goethals, head of
the cunal zone, was given as the au
thority for the statement.
The entire damage will not have
been reiaired for a considerable length
of time, however as the amount of
oarth while slid Into the channel at
Cult-bra out will roqtilre the attention
of the canal dredging force for sev
eral weeks, liy quick application of
the emergency force held at the canal,
t tie damage was repaired sufficiently to
allow of the passage of vessels with a
drart up to 30 feet.
Channel Being Made.
A channel 100 feet wide and 30 feet
deep will have been completed by to
morrow morning.
Unless through the number of
titeatiiers ahead of her the Grace liner
Santa Cecelia, due at the canal to
morrow or Tuesday, should not suffer
any delay. Captain Anderson's steamer
carries a heavy cargo, of, Portland
freight which shippers were anxiously
awaiting and he Is expected to follow
his schedule closely.
Yesterday afternoon the American
Hawaiian steamer Montanan arrived
in the harbor from New York via Cali
fornia ports. Bhe carries only 160 tons
of cargo for Portland, but will carry
away 600 tons of cargo awaiting her
on Albert dock.
Monday the Grace liner Santa Ca ta
li n a is due in from New York via Cali
fornia ports. She has 1500 tons of
cargo brought through the canal for
tills port and will take lumber and
general cargo outward bound.
Tramp Steamers Coming.
Importers alone were not the orHy
persons relieved when the news of the
re-opening of the Panama canal
reached the city for the exporters also
were worried during the three days the
canal was out of commission. Accord
ing to officers of the British steamer
South Pacific, which reached here yes
terday, the movement of the tramp
steamers in this direction Is general
and many more will come than have
Ueen announced as coming this way.
Delay of these steamers through the
canal would have meant the loss of
many thousand dollars to this section,
according to local exporters. The
movement of wheat now going ahead
at a rapid pace would have been great
ly 'delayed as the tramps would have
been cut out temporarily, at least.
Yeels in Coastwise Trade Are
Delayed by Winds.
Schedules have been broken in all
directions by the steamship companies
operating out of Portland this week,
due to the heavy storm which has been
Mowing off the coast of Oregon and
Washington. All lines being unfor
tunate enough to have a steamer due
in port during the latter three days of
the week were affected.
Sailings of the mosquito fleet havs
been especially affected, as, except for
the Bailing of the steamer Sue H. El
more and the gas schooner Tillamook
early last week, not a member of the
fleet has been seen in port in 10 days.
The steamer Geo. W. Elder will bo
36 hours late sailing from Portland, aa
she will not get in till Monday noon.
It is planned to send her out eight
hours later, however. She was de
layed both in and outbound at Eureka.
t Fifty hours were taken by the steam
er Qulnault, Captain Antone Wie, of
the Portland Steamship company's
fleet, in making the trip from Tatoosh
Head to Astoria. As she had only a
light cargo of canned salmon, she stood
out of the water more than usual, and,
bucking a heavy southeast wind, had
hard running. She will also be hurried
out, and is expected to sail by 9 o'clock
Monday evening. '

The steamer Oliver J. Olsen sailed
for San Francisco and Seattle this af
. ternoon, with passengers and a large
portion of the cargo of the steamer
Atlantic. Owing to the manner in
which the Atlantic had been loaded
in BoBton, northern cargo had to be
tlten from the steamer here before
the local cargo could be discharged.
French Ship Desalx Reaches Port
land Safely.
For 10 days before the French ship
Denaix, Captain Flonet, reached San
Diego harbor, her master and crew
were In deadly fear of being captured
by the German cruisers thought to be

Tho Desaix reached Portland yesterday
morning to discharge the remainder of
hei, cargo and Captain Plonefs story
of his voyage was listened to with
much interest by his several friends
here,, who gathered on, the ship yes
terday morning to welcome him.
The Desaix, in making r for San Di

advantage of wind and current which
