The weather on Thursday was disa

the atmosphere was raw in the extreme

To preserve a youthful appearance as
long as possible, it is indispensable that
the hair should retain its natural color
and fullness. There is no preparation
so effective as Ayer's Hair Vigor. It
prevents baldness, and keeps the scalp
clean, cool, and healthy.

also the mayor's appointment of Chas.
Noblitt, chief of police. Toe removal
of Capt. John Kelly upon the asserted

At the annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Bank of Oregon City on
Monday evening Major Thos. Charman,
G. A. Harding and '. O. Walden were
elected directors for the ensuing year.
This is the same board as served last
year. The annual election of officers of
the board has not yet been held hut
from the fact that the board is not
changed from last year there will prob
ably be no change in the management.
The prize fight which was booked for
Friday night failed to materialize as
there weie too few f porta in this com
munity to bite at a fake. Some of the
parties who let the fighters run bills to
be J presented and paid at the door
probably have their bills yet and might
bo persuaded to part with them at quite
a discount. Oregon City has no use for
fake prize fighters.
The executive committee of the Sun
day school association of Clackamas
county met in this city at 2 p. m. on the

Mrs. Brownell. President George Ran

excellent program was prepared for the
next meeting of the association which
takes place at Canby on Wednesday and
Thursday, the 21stand 22nd of February.
E. M. Donaldson, Sec,
Work has commenced on the new
pump which the water commissioners
are having put in as the old pump will
not begin to supply the demands for
water in the summer season and is be'
ides unsafe being liable to break at time
of fire when most needed. The new
pcoiD was built by the Union Iron
Works and they are under bonds guar
anteeing it to stand under 300 pounds
pressure. In building the pump the
company feared that the specifications
.would not give a pump to stand the
strain to which it would be put so they
strengthened it in its several parts, the
additions requiring four additional tons
cf iron. When the pump is set the
liilders will run it for thirty days at
their own expense both to show that it
is all right and to have every part in
perfect working order before turning it
A PROTRACTED STURM.
Widespread In Area ( lackamttH County
The storm of the pat week has beeu
almost universal along the Parillc coast,
many parts of which have mitlVred seri
ous loss from Its effects. Telegraphic re
ports show that it has extended from
British Columbia to southern California
and as far east as the Rocky Mountains.
In nearly all localities tt has been a
rain rather than a snow storm, and
streams swollen to overflowed banks
have been general, the reports indicat
ing higher water than has been ex
perienced More for years.
Ixx'ally the storm has been a lengthy
and disagreeable one, the weather being
a good part of the time quite raw and
cold as though snow were in the moun
tains roundabout. With clear weather
we shall probably see the higher moun
tains covered with anew.
While many localities report damage
by flood there seems to have been but
little to complain ot here aide from the
dinagreeablcnessof the storm, for no dam
age aide from a few culverts and small
bridges has ben reported The water
in this section a as high as at the
time of the storm in December.
Wednesday the water reached its
highest stage at Oregon City and did not
vary much from the stage of last month.
The track of the Southern Pacific north
of town was under water to the depth of
about 40 inches and trains failed to come
through on Monday and Tuesday but on
Wednesday morning all mail and de
layed passengers came through in two
sections. The wheel at the electric
station lacked sufficient head to furnish
power and both light for Oregon City
and Portland were scant while the elec
tric line had to abandon electricity as a
motive power on Wednesday evening
and attach an engine to the cars. The
up-river boats were all obliged to tie up
as the locks were closed and at times
there was considerable drift running.
The mills found on Wednesday morn
ing that there was too much water for
them to run so they had to shut down
which gave the men a forced rest. On
Wednesday night the water fell a little
and as the weather turned colder with
snow insight on all the hills back of
town it is almost certain that the back
bone of the storm is broken so far as
high water is concerned.
MINOR NOTE'S or INTEREST.
Persons living at Clackamas Heights
whose business required them to be in
town a ere considerably put out by the
water on the flats as they had to ar
range to be ferried over. The residents
of Kansas city had either to go around
by the public school or take to boats
across the flat .
C. G. Albright was shut otf from his
slaughter house by nearly half a mile of
water and had to take a skiff down to
pass to and fro and to bring his meats :
The sidewalk leading to Canemah was
afloat for perhaps 200 feet just beyond (
the Imperial mill. j
George Brouhton was anxious about
bis logs which are boomed on the eaat

and will be given on the 25th of this
month by the Presbyterian Y. P. S. C E
in Shively's hall. Later announcements
will tell you more about it the rate of
discount, some of the features, etc.
Several gentlemen were standing at the
corner of Seventh and Main streets when
one of them saw a purse lying near on
on the cross walk and went to pick it up.
It proved to be empty which cau'ed the
bystanders to laugh and some parties
approaching called their attention to
another empty purse lying near. So
abundant a supply of empty purses
caused considerable comment and it was
finally concluded that the owners finding
no use for them in these times had de
liberately thrown them away.
The luxury of a bath in a fine bath tub
full of hot water is denied to many on
account of lack of room for a tub, and
the cost of putting one in together with
boiler and pipes. This has been entirely
overcome by the folding bath tub and
heater which Messrs. Groom ot Elliott
are showing at the postoffice. It pos
sesses all the advantages of the old
fashioned bath tub, can be set up in a
bedroom and requires very little space.
Besides this it is cheap. Call and see it.
Tax lory Made.
On Monday of this week the county
court was in session, the business boforo
them being the making of tlio tax levy
for 1803. As the court could not get the
figures from the state board of equalisa
tion and It was not known what the
state levy would bo ther had to esti
mate lome of the items. The levy Is 21
mills made up as follows: state, esti
mated 5 mills, county school 8 mills,
county road 2 mills, county for general
purposes I) mills.
As soon a the figures are received
from the state hoard of equalisation
showing the changes that have Wii
made County Clerk Itorton will employ
sufficient help to keep a force at work on
the books day and night figuring out
the changes ordered by the lioard, then
as soon as the school districts have re
ported their levies the total tax will he
carried out. It is hoped that the slier i If
can begin collecting taxes early in March
but it will most likely be the middle of
the month or later before the books can
be got ready.

Victoria, B. C, Jan. 17. The steamer
Warrimoo, which sailed (or Honolulu
this evening, liore to the Hawaiian cap
ital letters which are deemed to be too
important fur transmission through the
mails, and which have been rntrusU-d
to the care of an uncommunicative pas
senger. They are addressed to Theo
phihiri Davies, and contain summarized
information of what ha already been
accomplished by his agent in the
Dominion of Canada, in the direction
of placing at tjueen Liliuokalani' com
mand a picked hodr guard of fine sol
dier. For some day past rumors have
been afloat that a company of volunteers
was being secretly orgsnised in Vancou
ver for the purpose, of aiding the ex
queen with rifles and swords to regain
her throne. Then came the announce
ment that although they were ready to
enlist, the scheme had been abandoned
owing to the failure of Hie principals to
' provide the "sinews of war." A a mat
ter of fact, the latter step has never for
a moment been contemplated, nor has
the projei-t bv any mean come to
naught. In proof of this letters were
shown to the correspondent here which
indicate it is maturing in a manner sat
ixfactory to the royalist hoies. The
commissioned recruiting olllcer named
by Davies is a well-known business man
of Vancouver, W. II. Sansom. This
man's instructions from Davis were to
enlist 200 flint-clans men to protect the
queen and royalist interests, and to tie
employed as I iliuokahtni may direct. Of
these 1H0 have been enrolled and are held
ready to proceed to Hawaii. letters
containing Davies' instructions are
looked fur in the mail brought to San
Francisco by the Australia. As these
have not arrived it is feared that they
have fallen into the hands of the pro
visional government, hence the the dis
patch of an agent on the Warrimo.
