Kverett ii Ijirgo VpknH.
The Kverett has the distinction ot
bolng tho lurgett wooden steam
schoonur on the i'acific Const. Her
dimensions aro: length 2S0 feet,
boom 4 6 foot and depth 20 feet. 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

The Everett will soon be in com

towed to Portland and the engine
will be installed, the Willamette Iron

Everett will be ready for the trial

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

ing lumber on the trip south and
bringing a cargo of nitrate or general
merchandise on the return trip.

WAS IT A JOKE
OR A MISTAKE?
The name of A. L. 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
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.

matter had been under discussion for
several raeetines. Mavor Sunn.
while admitting the need of thi
lights, mentioned thn fact that .
West St. Helens the taxpayers paid
on ncreage while ln St. Helens they
paid taxes on lots. He asked If
other llzhla In Woaf nt .m
not be moved to Highway Boulevard.
mr. iaraoee mougnt that all the
lights now being used were necessary
and Mr. Wheeler said he had made a
favorable report in the installation ot
Councilman Dixon enquired as to
what the nAnnla ahnnM naM fnm

BUILT ON FLOAT
A shingle mill which will go from
place to place and navigate any nav
igable stream, Is being built by Geo.
Dommeyer and associates and will
be operated on the Columbia river
and tributaries. The float is 85 X
100 feet and seven large logs. Sit
inches at the sm.-.ll end and from
tO to 60 Inches at the butt, are the
foundation of the floating mill. Tbu
machinery will be Installed ln the
aft part of the float and ln the "for
ward" end, there Is a slip where the
shingle bolts or cedar logs will be
brought to the saw.
The float is almost complete and
Mr. Dommeyer states that the ma
chinery will soon be Installed and the
floating mill ready for operation.
The mill will go from place to place
on the river, and manufactures
shingles and deliver them at the
place of manufacture. So far aa can
be learned, it Is the first shingle mill
ot its type yot built.
SECURES BIG ' .
R. B. J'agruder of Clatskante has
secured a contract from the Guthrie
Construction Company to do a lot
of dredging near Burlington where
tha Eccles road will terminate and
where they will dump the logs. Mr.
Magruder states to the Mist that ha
will have to move approximately
100,000 yards from the bottom ot
the slough and his contract calls for
the doepentng ot It 6 additional feet.
It will require about three months
to comple.e the work he thought.
