Her carrying capacity will be about 1, 600,000 foot of lumber, or 2500 tons genorul carico. It Is estimated that the Kverett will log off 12 knots per hour, as sho will bo equipped with twin screw engines, each having 700 horse power. Loading a cargo of lumber, or any other cargo, and tho discharge of the cargo of the Kverett will be done in short time for two steam winches forward will handle tho output and Input In tho two large hatches lor wurd, and ono winch aft will take coro of tho cargo that conies or goes from the after part ot tho vessel. In CommiNsiou Soon The Everett will soon be in com mission. Tomorrow she will be towed to Portland and the engine will be installed, the Willamette Iron & Steel Works having the contract for this part of the work. Super intendent Chrlstensen thinks that the Everett will be ready for the trial trip In about six weeks. Captain Koldat says the first cargo will be loaded at St. Helens for corstwlsa delivery and afterwards. It Is prob able the Everett will enter the Mex ican or South American trade, tak ing lumber on the trip south and bringing a cargo of nitrate or general merchandise on the return trip.

Mllla, president of the Klrst National Bank of Port land, and one of the gianta of In dustry ln the metropolis. Is always connected with business rather than politics, but It seems Mr. Mills has stepped into politics and that he put the wrong foot forward In his first step Mr. Mills is all right aa a banker, and thinks that all bankeri -.re; all right, for he is ot the opinion that Sherman Miles, president of the Columbia County Hank is a repub lican. He wrote Sherman a letter stating that Oregon should raise a certain sum for the republican cam paign expense and asked that Sher man raise Columbia county's quota. The request from his banker frlen.l places Sherman in rather an em harassing position, for his father-in-law, Milton A. Miller, leader of Ore gon's democracy, looks to Sherman, Dr. Welch and Bill Fullerton to make Columbia county sate for democrats. Therefore, Shermrn is in a pre dicament, his grandfather, tho iau Judge F. A. Moore, was a staunch republican; his grandfather on the Miles side of the family, tho late 8. A. Miles was a Kentucky democrat, his father, Frank Miles is an Inde pendent and his fatMer-ln-law, Mil ton Miller, is the leader of the demo cratic hosts of Oregon. The predica ment la that on account of his friend ly feeling for his brother bankers, he feels duty bourd to help in rais ing funds for the republican cam paign, and r.s a democrat, both by birth and marriage, he feels that he owes some allegiance to the party ln whlih he Is rcsistered. On account of his friendship with Mills, It is possible he will regard as confidential tho information con veyed to him In Mlll'a letter for bankers must not fight, even if poli ticians do In printing this, the Mist desires that Milton Miller does not learn ot the occurence, for It Is possible he might think that his son-in-law con templated affiliating with the party which his grandfather Judge Moore, loved, honored and served. Really, Mills has passed the buck to Sherman and given him an opportunity to re form, or in other words, forget poli tics and align himself with those who are for the continuance ot America's prestige and Influence. It will be interesting to many to see how Sher man will decide since the question Is squarely before him. Should he join the republican ranks, it is possible that Bill Fullerton and Dr. Welch will Join him. CLEANUP DATES . .
