Astoria. Oregon, Sept. 20. 1877.
NQJJPJLI2 SH,P msTERS-
The undersigned respectfully desires to inform
"M.ijt.rK nt vefispls entenii!r the Dort of Abioria
that there actually exi&t such as real live stove
dors right here ut Astoria, without their being
obliged to travel a hundred miles up the river to
find one. and in the end be compelled to take the
man particularly pointed out to them by the Port
land ring whether agreeable to the Captain or not,
take him he must. I remarked they were corn
pulled to take the man pointed out to them and I
repeat it: for, the shipmasters once in the sancto
riuni of the Portland ring has no choice but pa
tiently to submit to the one man concern.
It is a well known fact that stevedore uills con
stitute one of the principal items of ships bills in
all commercial perts: but under the present v
tematic arrangements ot the Portland ring mana
gers, the Captains opinion on tliat subject, thore.
is never called into question or consulted, every
precaution being studiously taken, and every
avenue to approach tne Captain on that subject
by outsider being zealously guarded by the toters
an"d wire-pullers of the lingleaves no alternatives,
but. for tn Captain submissively to accept the
conditions held out by them.
But I will bere take the liberty to state, for the
cr.ar.;..! it..nifit nf shin Masters, and 1 am able to
urove my us-ertiou, mat! cm save to any ship j
Captain or owner tUe xound sum ot tnree Hun
dred and four dollars in U. S. gold com. on every
l.OUl) tonsot wheat or ilour that may go into their
ships here at Astoria, and it ship .Musiors ohoso to
accept my proposition. I'll guureuirt tho best sat
jsfactionai figures propoitioually nominal com
pared to Portland rates. .
Under tho present system of employing steve
dores ut Port-land tne Master of a ship is com
pletely at the mercy of tne consign e agent, or
charter-part... wiio inaEOj it their business to
point out their mail .JacK. and the Captain i of
necessity compelled to accept the communis nold
out by t,neni, the utmost care being tauen and
tender solicitude oxnibitd towards the Captain,
innrdrLi jruard and urotect hiai from all dan
ger of approach or contact with outside parties,
tor fear'uf opposition, as from an epidemic, he is
never to." a moment lost siut of by the toters and
button-holers of the rinj:. troui the moment be
.sets foot ui terra firma. until he's got his clear
ance 1.1 ins pocket and on his ay out.
