Tins dam Is of crib work. It varies in
height from two or ttiree feet to sixteen ;
the irregularities of the rock being re-

will serve to keep it down to the rocks
so there will not be a great tendency
to break away from the fastenings.
The plana have been prepared for a
large power hous to be constructed on
the west bank ot the river on the west
side ot the canal. The new building
will be next to the bluff. The dimen
sions are 315x45 feet and it will be fitted
with machinery for generating 10,000
horse power. This will render necessary
the widening of the canal by eighty
feet for about 1300 feet of its length.
The waste way for the water giving the
power will be between the upper and
lower mills of the Willamette Pulp A
Paper company. It is not yet deter
mined whether work on this immense
power house will be begun this year or
not. The rainy weather is so near at
hand that it is likely this work will be
put over till next season and then rushed
through to completion. Still the com
pany is eager to get the thing in shatie

will be required on this improvement.
Engineer Sullivan is kept busy in ar
ranging and directing the plans and
improvement work. Every officer of
the company is anxious to get the work
planned completed so that the big
scheme of development may be carried
forward. President Morey is thoroughly
alive to the possibilities of the case and
he is pushing with all his indomitable
energy toward the goal. It will take a
little time to put in operation all the
forces which will be centered here but
the matter is in competed hands and it
promises to bring Oregon City the prom
inence and prosperity to which its nat
ural advantages entitle it.
