It Is not known how long the reduced tariff will continue, but presumably until the usual rates to and from Puget Sound points are restored. A rate war has been In progress for some time past between the Pacific Coast Steamshap Company and the owners of the steamer Farallouie. The former ha two steamers In service between San Francisco and Puget Sound points the Walla Walla and the City of Puebla. The Farallone is their only competitor, and, as it Is a smaller and slower boat than the others, It felt compelled to bid for patronage by reducing the rate. The reduction was met by the Pacific Coast company, until of late a flrst olass passage to or from San Francisco could be had for 5. A great many peo ple have taken advantage of the cut, the Walla Walla hawing 250 passengers on Its last trip. It has affected the bus iness of the Oregon Railway and Navi gation Company, somewhat, for the $5 rate from Tacoma has made it pos sible for travellers Abound to 6an Fran cisco from Portland and Astoria to save money by going to Tacoma by rail and taking the steamer from that point Instead of sailing direct.
