a regular liner between Portland and
Hongkong and way ports. Advices re
ceived at Portland. Ore., state that the
vessel has been purchased by a Jap
anese company an drechri3tened.
The Nankai Ma.ru is joading a cargo
of oak logs at Otaru, Japan, for Port
land, rays the Telegram, and she is
expected to sail any day now. She' is
under charter to the Pacific Lumber
& Manufacturing Company. Her ar
rival will be looked for the early part
of next month. Before she puts in afn
appearance she is expected to be
chartered to load lumber or flour "for
the return trip to the. Far East.
Several of the old India Hners have
been sold and put under other flags.
It has been about eight yearj since
they were engaged in the trans-Pacific
trade out of Portland. The line was
about the only one to be operated
from here that ever gave a direct
service to and front the Orient.- The
steamers carried capacity cargoes
both ways. During their term of ser
vice it is said they netted the owner",
a big revenue. The traffic is supposed
to have been on a big paying basi.-i
when the Portland & Asiatic Steam
ship Company chartered Hamburg
American steamers to take the place
of the India liners. GraJuully the di
rect service was dropped and the plan
of sending the steamers via Honolulu
and Snn Francisco .followed and the
traffic began to dwindle.
The Japanese flag will be much in
evidence in Portland's harbor during
the next month or so. At least three
or four other vessels owned in the
Island Empire are under charter to
com' to Portland. Among them arc
the Unkai Maru No. 2, the Rangoon
.Maru and the Manshu Maru. The
Unkai Maru No. 2 is headed in thai
direction on her fourth trip to Port
land, which places her in about the
same class as the regular liner.
