Rumors have been current that
the Northern Pacific has positively

the Willamette but all conditions
now point to the fact that the
oflicials will stick to the original
intention of cro&siug here at St.
Johns aud putting in a huge draw
Four or five routes have been
surveyed front Vancouver to the
bauks of the Willamette, and sound
ings have been taken in several
places in the river bed. Men have
been stationed for a three-day period
several times to count every boat
passing in either direction during
the 72 hours in order to ascertain
how many times the draw would
have to ooen durintr the busy
season. The total number of vessels
requiring the opening of the draw
cannot be ascertained: but these
