Wfalhir Conditions Without Prece
dent for !'2 Yearjr.
The Oregoulan give the following re
cord of Oregon weather for the past
Since November 1, 1WM, to noon of
March 18, there ha fallen in thi i lly
sixteen inche of precipitation, which is
fourteen inches below the average for
that period. From January 24 to Feb
ruary 11, a period of eighteen days, nc
rain fell, condition at that season ol
the year without precedent during the
past twenty-two years. In lH!2, rain
ceased on December L"J, and no more
rain fell until January 20, WXi, save light
rain on the lot h and 15th of January.
This period of fair weather was between
the snow storm ol December and that of
the lutter pait of January and the foie
part ol February. In 113 a year quite
similar to the piesent year prevailed
In the year lH!Ct no lain fell at Portland
from February 21, to March 23, when
rain tn-gan, and in the nine remaining
days of Match 0 40 inches of rain fell,
and out of the 30 days of April, rain full
to the amount of 7 88 inches in twenty
of the days.
March of 1HK5 hail the least rainfall on
record. Only 0 (13 of an inch of rain fell
and lliat lell during the first ten days.
April of that year was dry also, while
May was wet. The year 1W2 is spoken
of a being a dry year. January and
February of 18112 hail mean tenis;ratnre
of from ten to fourteen degree below tho
normal. The rainfall for the months of
iHicember, January and February 1894-5
at Portland amounted to 12.01 inches
At the Vancouver barracks in the same
months of lWil-2 there fell 12.1.7 incl.es.
There were no words then made in this
city, and the records at Vancouver were
made by the hospital ors, U.S.A.
The average rainfall at Portland for those
months is 20. IMS inches: at Vancouver
10.82 inches. There are no records now
made at Vancouver, but the old records
at Vanconver may be compared with
those of Portland. Since January 1, 1H1I5
rain has fallen on thirty-two days, while
the average is forty-six days. The tern-IM-rature
since January I, has been
nearly normal, but excepting the last
ten days of February and the first four
days of March, w hen an excess of tem
perature prevailed, it has been materially
below the normal.
That there will be no June flood is an
assured fact. At Cloud Cap inn, on Mt.
Hood, there Is at the presenttlme not
over one-half as much snow as there was
on May 1, 1K1I4. Similar reports are re
ceived at the headwaters of the Colum
bia and Snake; so that those having
fears of a Tune flood can now rest as
sured of no Hood.
There will be a delightful social in the
basement of I lie Baptist church on Fri
day eveniiiit, March 22, commencing at
7 :45 o'clock . The ladies will bring bas

County Clerk's Fees.
Judge Mi firide, who is now holding
court at Astoria, ha made an older in
regard to the fees to be paid to tint clerk
of the court a provldeJ by the new law.
Ili-low is given the order in full a taken
from the Astoria News:
"In the matu-r rrf trial fees and clerk's
fee for filing pleading and paper in
.id Ions snd suits
"At this time the clerk of this court
applied to the court for advice and in
struction a to what trial fees should b
charged in actions and suits pending
prior to the act of 18H5 regulating such
fees, and what fees should be charged
for Tiling pleading in suits wherein the
litigation does not involve money or
property ot a specified value: and with
the clerk come also several members of
the bar who were Interested in the
questions prented. And it appearing
to the court that the clerk did not re
ceive a copy of the act of 1815 until
March 1, 18'J5, and that he collected
fee up to that date under the prior
statute, his action in doing so is ap
proved by the court.
"It is the judgment of the court that
tho act of 18115 repeals all other acts and
statutes regulating such fees ami that
from and after March 1, I8I5, fees there
under should be exacted bv the clerk of
this court in all actions and suits insti
tuted prior to its enactment as well as
those instituted subsequent to its enact
ment. In all suits wherein the relief
demanded or prayed for is not in money
or the value of the matter in litigation
does not appear in the pleadings, .r
shall be paid on filing the complaint and
$3 on filing the motion, answer or de
murrer on the part of the defendant.
And where any party has made an over
charge, the same shall be refunded, and
where the clerk has failed to collect the
proper fee. the same is approved up to
this date. Thomas A. McBkidk,

The Par Place literary Society.
Last Saturday evening every seat in
the upper story of the Park Place school
house was occupied, an l many were very
fortunate to find standing room.' The
drawing card of the evening was the
joint discussion between the Park Place
society and the Franklin debating club
of Oregon City. The question waa "He
solved, That liquor has done more harm
to the human race than war." The
Park Place society was represented by
James Matheson, Winnie Dau;hy, Jesse
Fkiibain and David Close, and the boys
of the Franklin club, of OresunCity,
consisted of Fred Meindie, Edgar
Merrese, Willie Logus, and Howard
Brownell. The question was very hotly
and equally discussed . The judges un
doubtedly had a trying job on their
htrhds when they came to decide as to
which Bhould have the honor of winning
the debate. The Oregon City boys gained
that honor, but the Park Place boys are
equally honored for the glorious defeat
thpy made, Many thanks are extended
to the Park Place band for their kind
ness in entertaining the people with
their splendid music. After an excellent
literary program the meetings ot the
Park Place literary and debating society
were adjourned for this season.
