Helens Plant, Unable to Handle HunIiiomh, Kiililets to Astoria Yurl Provision has been made In the construction plans of the St. Helens s,lP1,ulllll"K Company for two steum scliooners for tho Charlea H. McCor mlck Company, Instead of one, as was decided on early In tho year, while ono additional motorship Is planned. Ono steam schooner and the motorship or auxiliary schooner will bo turned out at the Astoria plant of Wilson Ilros., and the sec ond steam schooner will bo built at St. Helens. The steam schooners will be of the sumo typo as the Wapamu, each car rying 1,200,000 feet, and tho auxil iary schooner 2,000,000 feat, says the Sunduy Orcgonlun. II. F. McCormlck of the St. Hel ens Shipbuilding Company, was at Astoria yesterday completing details of the contracts with Wilson Bros, for the two vcbeoIs there, work on which will bo started as soon as pos sible. At the St. Helena plants the auxiliary schooner City of Portland will be launched shortly, probably the latter part of tho week, and the City of St. Helens, a sister ship, is on the ways, the f ruined being in place. Alongside of her the schooner Huby, building for Captain Wrlghtson, of Mobile, Ala., Is well along and will luke tho water during the early part of the summer.." She has been sold iand a sitter ahlp ordered at the same plant. With the City of Portland off the way. " of the steam schooners Is to bo started In that space. The lat ter, us well as the steamer provided for at Astoria, will be about 215 feet long, or about ton feet longer than tho steamer Wapuma, while they will resemblo her In other ways. While she carries about 1,050,000 feet of I liimhni. Ilmv will llHVA CAn&cltV for cIobo to 1,200,000 feet. It was in tended to build the ver.sel Bteamor to carry 1,500,000 feet, but Buccess at talned with the Wapama has resulted In tho dimensions being altered, so as to follow her lines, with only trivial Increase in size. It was because of the dotermln atlon to add two steam schooners to the fleet that contracts were awarded to Wilson Bros., as tho St. Helens plant Is operating to capacity. The auxiliary schooner to be built there will bo luld down on the same lines as tho City of Portland and City of St Holons, which are each to carry 2, 000,000 foot of lumber.

CITY OF PORTLAND LAUNCHED SATURDAY Bottle of "Something" to Be Broken on the Bow The Chas. R. McCormlck Co., owners of the St. Helens Shipbuild ing Company, have Issued very neat invitations to the citizens of Oregon to be in St. Helens Saturday to wit ness the launching of the big motor vessel, the City of Portland, Saturday afternoon, April 15, at 3 o'clock.

The launching of this vessel marks an epoch in the shipbuilding industry of the Pacific Coast isasmuch as she U the largest single deck wooden ves sel yet built, the largest motor vessel ever built in the United States. Ir has required about eight months to build the vessel and has given em ployment to some hundred men who are now making their final work ou her. In her construction nearly two million feet of lumber - have been used and some hundreds of tons of bolts have been used to fasten her together. A number of prominent men of Oregon and other Western states will be here to witness the launching. A more extended account of the launching and the vessel will appear in the next issue of the Mist. INSPECTS ROAD County Judge Clark on Monday inspected the Frink road with a view towards ascertaining what could be done towards putting it in good con dltlon. The amount appropriated for this stretch of road Is only S35C0 while the judge figures It will take several times that amount to put it in such condition as to make It pass able the whole year. The county court will make some Improvements and endeavor to make the amount appropriated go as far as possible. The Frink road leads from Scapponre to Spltzenberg and with that section of the county rapidly settling up, a good road is much needed. CAPTAIN EDWARD JAHNSEN Captain Edward Jahnsen, after a Test of several months, has. resumed command of the steamer Klamath, relieving Capt. "Alvena" Johnson, who will take charge of the motor vessel "City of Portland." Captain Jahnsen has been In command of every vessel operated by the McCor mlck people and Is regarded as one of the raoBt careful mariners on the Pacific Coast. He has been going to sea since 1870 and states that he has never seen a sailor drowned, a ves sel wrecked or any accident of any consequence during his 46 years at sea, which goes to show that a man really is in no more danger at sea than if on land. Captain Jahnsen was kept busy shaking hands with his ninny friends here. rn :.?--- f i NEW CITY COUNCIL BUSY SESSION IS HELD New Officials Sworn In Standing Committees Council met in regular session Monday evening.
