F TI1H SHU' CITY OF PORTLAND dustry." Ho congratulated Mr. Mc Cormlck and his company on their foresight and enterprise in getting into that business. Portland will bo the home port of the City of Portland, although all tho other McCormlck ships make Sun Francisco their homo port. Wlillo thu launching of tho City of Portland marks an epoch in deep sea craft which will touch at many for eign ports, advertising tho great Co lumbia und Portland, the local In terest will center In tho launching of tho City of St. Helens, tho keel of which has already been laid. Tele gram llazen has woll said: "When tho good ship City of St. Helens makes her first llttlo dtp the townsfolk aro going to put on their best bid and tucker and aro going to unlock every door and gate In the town and throw iiwuy the keys. Everybody In Oregon Is going to be Invited to tho feasting and dancing. The calendars aro to bo dated from Hint day forth, for St. Helens has become a brido of tho sea." Tlm City of Portland is 200 feet over all, 44-foot beam, and 22 feet moulded depth. Two million feet of lumber was used in tho construction of tho vessel. Fore and aft truss construction rolnforces tho hull without Interfer ing with tho handling and storage of lumber, and In order to facilitate the handling of long length timbers, bow and stern ports will be provided. The cargo will bo handled with four regulation steam winches with 130 poiind marine hollers. She Is to bo equipped wllh five masts and carry tho usual amount of canvas for a schooner of her size. Tho auxiliary power plant of this vessel will consist of two 4-cylinder llollnder engines of the soml-Diesel MARINE HISTORY type, each unit helng 320 II. I'. and 225 It. 1'. M., swinging a 4-foot lilado (JxX propeller. The need by motor propulHion ulono will bo about H h not h. Tlm advanlago of auxiliary power in a lumber Hchoouer are many and well JuBtll'y the coHt of engine Instal lation. The Having In towage and Iho time saving in the calm belts, and the greater npeod at which the vessel travels are all dominant fact ors in increasing the shtp'B earnings and utility. The Having In crew coHtH can he Keen when only three men are required in the engine room. I'Vom mi Investment point of view, Hie points advanced in favor of the wooden hlp may be briefly stated as follows: That four carriers of 2, 000,000 feet capacity can be built for the coHt of ono 5,000,000 feet steel steamer; that a cargo of 2,000,000 feet is not too largo to be readily ab sorbed at either foreign or domestic ports; that the loss of a ship of this size and capacity would not neces- V y-x m. ' - sit, . - sarlly cripple a firm's trade and fin ally that the auxiliary power feature presents marked economies in oper ating costs over either a steam or sailing schooner. Tliis vessel will carry fuel oil suf llclent fur a run of sixty days and the radius of action Is practically unlim ited. Many launches and tho steamer Meltako were utilized lu taking the crowds from tho dock to the ship yards, which are located on Suuvios' Island, free transportation for all. Two bands, one from tho Uenson' "Tech.". and one from tho Washing ton High, accompanied tho Portland party on the steamer I'ndine. Dur ing tho wait preceding tho launching tho students stnged a grand march led by tho bands, on the deck of the now ship. Tim St. Helens band also contrib uted to the pleasures of tho day. Miss Elizabeth Wiggins, who christened the vessel, was presented by tho McCormlck company with a handsome gold wrist, watch bounti fully engraved, as a token of their esteem and appreciation of her dis tinguished services. Sho was given A-l classification in the Hureau Veritas by K. II. I.averie, chief surveyor of that organization, New York, who was here this week mid Inspected the vessel. This will entitle tho owners to obtain insur ance on the vessel at thu usual rate quoted anywhere In tho world. Tho City of Portland has been chartered to mako four trips to Aus tralia with lumber cargoes. Her earnings will be adequate to pay the original cost of her construction be fore all of those passages have beeii completed. Returning from the Antipodes, sho will carry cargoes of conl. Sho can handle 2200 tons of that product In her hold at a trip. A s ss r i V ' I I 4 ST. HELENS MIST SPORTING NEWS - - 1 1 1 KOITEO BV LESTER WELLLINGTQN ' THE WHITE SOX LOSE Kirkputrii ks Stage Kally Wliich Wins the Game It was a hard game to lose, for it looked as though we had It safely tucked away uud would still be the l.eaguo leaders, but the ninth inning dashed these hopes. Still it was In tel et lug from start to finish and the game wasn't over until the last St. Helens man was out. It was the kind of game the funs like, and the 250 present came out of the grounds feel ing that they bad received their money's worth. The Kirkpatricks started tilings right In the first frame scoring ono run; St. Helens came back with two and 1t went that way until the third when with the uld of hits, errors and overthrows, St. Hel ens scored four runs, giving them a comfortable lead. Manager Heales has instilled in his team a little fight ing spirit and they showed It in the fourth period, when they scored two runs and added another in the fifth. This made the score 4 to 6 and it re mained that until the ninth, when a couple of errors by the home guard and a woll placed two base bit by linker with two men on the paths, brought in just tho required number to tie tho score. Another single and the score was 7 to 0 against us. St. Helens made a valiant effort in their half of the ninth to overcome this, and had two men on bases, but Hall's drive went a little high and fell into I lie hands of t'enterfielder J. Dixon, thereby blasting the hopes of the rabid fans along the coaching line. Hayes, who followed, was an easy out and tho game was over.

Pretty good for one game, Virg. Dill made several good stops and also a running catch which came near being in the impossible class. The one hand stop Steve made brought the fans to their feet. Hayes was so anxious to get to third that he forgot Heese was rest ing there; resulting in the running down of the little middle garden man between home and third. Mickey showed speed when he beat out his bunt. He handled six chances and the one error he made was a hard luck one. Umpire Grayson sent First Base man Dixon to the bench for protest ing a little too vigorously. The de cision Grayson made in calling Dixon out at second was a bad one, never theless, he did right in sending Dix on to the bench and showing his au thority. The fans do not like to see an umpire of no backbone nor one who will argue with a player for an hour. Grayson wus decidedly off on his decisions and he couldn't seem to locate the plate. However, we think he was entirely honest in all of his decisions. Manager Heales liked St. Helens; he also liked the last week's Issue of tho Mist, for be handed In the coin for a year's subscription. He has charge of the incinerator for the city of Portland. There were twelve real autos park ed on the ground. Counting Bob Cole's red "Go Devil," .there were thirteen. Maybe this was the cause of the unlucky ninth. Pete Brukke has signed with Woodland. He will play third base. In Sunday's game, as the box score shows, he made one hit out of four times up. He also made four assists with one error charged to him. Pete tells us this was a very hard chance, and not being there to judge, we will have to take his word for It. The "pep" shown by Ballagh's White Sox leads one to believe that all of them were not out all Saturday night. A little sleep helps a ball player. Baseball fans will be interested to learn that Stanley Coveleskie, one of Portland's pitchers of 1915, and bought by Detroit In the American League, pitched against Detroit on Sunday last. He fanned the dreaded Ty Cobb and pitched great ball, until the twelfth inning, when he blew up and allowed Detroit to bunch five hits, Detroit winning the game. Stan ley's brother, who pitches for Detroit, was scheduled to appear against his "kid" brother, but refused to do so, which goes to show that the old say ing that "blood is thicker than wa ter," applies to baseball as well as war. The St. Helens Juniors journeyed to Deer Island Sunday and were de feated by that team by a score of 6 to 4. There is good material In the Juniors and a little aid from the ex perienced players will help them wonderfully. Look them over, Ed, for next year you might need several of them. Donaldson showed his head work when he stopped a belated throw from center field and instead of re laying It to home plate, where there was only a slight chance of catching the runner, threw to second, catch ing his man by several feet. When Alex Donaldson, superin tendent of streets of Portland, was down In his machine to see how his son performed on the pitching lino, he didn't like the ninth Inning very much. Alex deserved to win. Earl Perry has always been con sidered one of the mainstays of the team. He is a good fielder and a fairly good batter; however It doesn't show the proper spunk to quit the game when he thinks the umpire called him out on a bad one. His quitting might have been tho turn ing point in the game. Stay with It, Earl, and keep the fighting spirit up, which is at least 50 per cent to any ball player.
