Mr. Kay has assured tne cnamoer

will be performing a greater service
for the state by going to New York
than by remaining at his office in

At noon the official gauge on the Mor

ing a fall of a foot since S o'clock.
Since 8 o'clock Friday morning there
has been a fall in the river here of
half a foot even, the stage this morning
being 18.8 feet. All indications are for
a steady fall, according to T. Francis
Drake, forecaster at the weather bu
reau. One sure sign, he said, is In the
weather forecast, which predicts fair
tonight and Sunday, with colder weather
tonight. Colder weather, if anything.
will check the flow of water out of
the mountains. With this development,
the prediction that these will be no fur
ther rise in the river at this time is
Another sign Is the fact that all points
up the valley reported substantial drops
this morning, although at every place
there was rain. At only one place in
the inland empire was a rise reported.
This was Lewlaton, which had .22 of an
Inch of rain and recorded a rise in the
river there -of .8 of a foot. Umatilla,
having .18 of an Inch of rain, reports
a fall in the river of half a foot.
Eugene had .18 of an Inch of rain.
The river there fell one foot. At Al
bany there was .26 of an Inch of rain
and there was a fall in the river or z.9
feet. There was .20 of an inch of rain
at Salem and a drop of 4-8 feet. Oregon
City had a drop of .7 of an inch with
.78 of an inch of rain. At Portland tno
rainfall was .48 of an inch.
All of these readings are for the 24
hours ending at 8 o'clock this morning.
The only evidence of the flood at Port
land now, .worthy of special note, is the
fact that some of the lower docks are
still under water. With the river go
ing down a few Inches more, however,
most of the docks will be fully re
covered. The water never reached some
of the higher docks.

LAUD FRAUDERS ARE
SENTENCED AFTER ONE
PLEADS FOR ANOTHER
W. H. Hallowell Gets' 13 Months
on,"ls!and"j W. F. Lick
; Guest of County.
Sentence was passed by Judge Bean
in federal court yesterday - upon W.
F. Hallowell of Seattle and W. F. XJck
of Helena, Mont, convicted of using the
mails to defraud In the Canadian con
spiracy case.' in which the Oregon-Cali
fornia, railroad land grant was involved.
Hallowell was sentenced to IS months
in the federal prison on McNeils island
and Lick to three months in the county
Jail at Portland.
An unexpected and dramatic feature
of the sesaloa was . the plea, made by
Hallowell to behalf of Lick. , Hallowell
urged that, the entire blame and. if pos
sible, the entire punishment be placed
entirely on himself. He wanted to tes
tify that Lick, being a man without edu
cation or knowledge of law, had taken
orders from him and obeyed them with
out any thought of wrong doing. '
Judge T. J. Cleeton, representing Lick.
llkeawlse -advanced this plea, with the
addition that as Lick's three sons and
two sons-in-law had ail enlisted Jn their
nation's army, the entire support ot
their families devolved oa thla one man.
United States Attorney Clarence I.
Reames laid special stress on tha fact
that never in the history of these cases
had any effort been made by any of
the defendents in this or former trials
to find out from government officials

Judge Bean, in pronouncing sentence,

interfere with his obligation.

O. M. Clark, speaking for the rollU
said an estimate of 141.000,000 feet cf
ship timbers, with additional help to be
expected from valley mills, is reason
able. He predicted that Oregon will
build 25 to 23 1-8 per cent more wooden
ships than Puget Sound. While the mllie
on Puget Sound have greater capacity,
be explained, the Oregon logs yield a
greater percentage of ship timbers.

William Plgott, the Seattle business
man and shipbuilder, who called the
Puget Bound builders together last Sun
day night, then wired to Chairman Hur
ley a Puget Sound pledge of 400.000 tons
of wooden and 400,000 tons of steel ve
sels. admitted that Oregon can build
more edowon ships than Puket Sound.
He said that a local record 8 1-3 per
cent greater than Puget Sound may be
expected, and he promised to buy Mr,
uarit euner a suit or clothes or an
automobile if the record is made.
H. B. Van Duser of the Inman-Poul-
sen mill said It should be possible to
organise the milling industry greatly to
Increase the output of ship timbers. A
large amount of lifoiber for shipbuild
ing should come from the Tillamook
line, In addition to other dUtrlcts men

Mr. Plggott told how- he had visited a
number of the local yards and had been
astonished at their clear evidence of ef
ficiency" and capacity. He advised the
organisation of an Oregon wood ship
builders' association to deal direct with
the shipping board. Chairman Hurley,
he declared. Is possessed of but one idea.
