To He Sailed To-Day.
Tho boat raee which resulted so
unsatisfactorily last Saturday, was
not run the next day. it being impos
sible to harmonize, but arrangements
were made yesterday to which all
agreed. The understanding at pres
ent writing is that the race is to be
sailed to-day. The intention is to
start between nine and ten this morn
ing if there is an eighteen mile breeze;
if not to wait till later in the day.
The six boats aro to start from the
same place as on Saturday and sail
over the same course. They will
start on a line, having first drawn for
choice or position. The boats will
bo ranged along that linej sixty feet
apart, each provided with an auchor
and a buoy to mark the auchor. At
the gunshot the anchors are to be
slipped and away they go, the first
boat to cross the line at the finish to
be the winner, regardless of time.
This is believed to be fair for all, and
if there is anything like a good wind
to-morrow tho race will be a fine one.
It will be low water at 9:27, a. m.
Tho I'oroisni Lumber Tnnlo.
Ten sail vessels were loading red
wood lumber at Hnmbolt bay, Cali
fornia, last week for foreign ports,
the largest number ever seen there in
the foreign trade. Tho foreign de
mand for lumber ffrom Australia
principally) never was so great as
now. The Puget sound sawmills
have been quite severely taxed to
supply it, in several instances getting
out more lumber even than in the
brisk day of 18S2 and 1SS3. The de
mand from California is very slack,
while that at home has greatly fallen
off. Formerly tho shipn-euts foreign
aggregated from 10 to 25 per cent of
the whole; now they run from 40 to
50. Were it not for the trade from
abroad the lumber business would
now be exceedingly dull. The call
for lumber from Panama has ceased
entirely, while a large demand from
China is expected in the event that
the anticipated railroad building in
that country is realized Seattle

The usual rate of wages for miners
throughout the eastern Oregon min
eral district, is S2 per day, and em
ployers have no difficulty in making
up their gangs a this rate. The Chi
namen receive the same pay as the
white men, and in all cases where
regular wages are paid the men find
their own board. About 2.000 men
are now at work at these wages.
The Oregon City woolen mills em

of which is paid to white labor. It
will thus bo seen that the mill keeps
one hundred families at Oregon City.

About 300 Chinamen arrived Satur

days for Yictoria, when they will em
bark on tho barks Sparta and Alden
Besse, which vessels will sail shortly
for China. The Chinamen aro com
pelled to pay $50 each to laud at Vic

coma havo been ordered to leave
that place by November 1st
Tho San Francisco Chronicle says:
"The experiment of using steam col
liers on this coast has been given a
good test, and it is now generally con
sidered that their work, as far as ex
pense is concerned, is a failure. The
vessels in tho Oregon Improvement
company, and of the Pacific Improve
ment, have run behind ever since
they started, and the business
will hereafter be turned over to sail
ing vessels, as they cau bring and
land the coal here at fully 50 per cent,
less cost than any of the steam col
liers now here.1' The Oregonian
adds: What is stated relativo
to steam oplliers as a failure,
is about true, but sailing vessels can
not land coal in San Francisco at
50 per cent less than colliers. The
companies havo charged up the co3t
of transportation between Puget
sound and San Francisco at S2.50
per ton thongh it has been a trifle
less than that sum. Sailing vessels
can now bo chartered at $1.75 to $2
per ton, in any quantity, and some,
it is supposed, will charter still lower.
W. D. Tyler, manager of tho Taco
ma hotel has a long letter in the
Ledger xipon the Chinese question, in
which ho relates his own experience
with white help about tho hotel. He
says: Within ono year after the op
ening of tho Tacoma hotel I brought
from the east and San Francisco,
thirty-three whito employes (twenty
one male and twelve female) at a cost
of nearly $5,000 in fares and other
expenses. Of that number I have
seven left, and although I am paying
in many instances double and in
some treble the wages paid for tho
same service in the east, they left mo
largely because they could procure
better wages! Wherein is the hard
ship of which complaint is made?
Women in the east are glad to get $8
and $10 per month, with board in
cluded, and at thoso figures dress
nearly as well as their employers,
aud save money beside. Hero I pay
$20 and $30 and get tho samo work
done. Why don't they flock in and
fill these places now, as I am told
they will when the Chinese go? Be
cause it's a long walk, and they can
not pay the fare. In view of these
facts I would liko your readers to
ask themselves whether there may
not be some other canso for the glut
of our labor market Is it not the
outcome of the unhealthy Villard
boom, which by its pyrotechnic dis
play has brought to our shores an
undue proportion of labor illy pre
pared to wait for the advent of the
good times wo so earnestly expect.
Messrs. James Lotan and J. L.
Ferguson, local inspectors of boilers
and hulls for tho district of the
Willamette, have just completed their
quarterly report for tho three months
ending Sept. 3. During the three
months past they have inspected
forty-nine steamer hulls and sixty
one boilers, and issued 151 licenses to
pilots and engineers. When it is
considered that the report is for only
one quarter of a year, somo interest
will be taken in what has beeu done
during the three-quarters of the year '
just closed. Licenses have been is
sued during that time to 123 masters,
seventeen mates, fifty-seven pilots
aud 100 engineers. The number of
steamers given certificates this year
during three-quarters, and their
registered tonnage, is almost equal to
last year's en tiro number. Last year
the number was one hundred and
ten with a gross tonnage of 39,925.51,
against 101 steamers this year with
a gross tonnage of 22,231.15. Before
the end of tho yoar tho number will
have overrun last year's number by
considerable. The report shows that
over 500,000 passengers have been
carried duriug the threo months and
of that immense number not a life
has been lost In fact there has not
been n passenger lost or killed in the
Willamette district during the entire
year so far. This is probably tho
only district in the whole country
that can boast of having carried over
a million passengers without an
accident or loss of lifo to one of them.
There has been an increase of nine
teen steamers so far this year. The
total at the end of the year will prob
ably reach ISO. Oregonian, 11.
