As announced "Captain Webb"

in his barret. The trip this time
occupied 10 minutes. After the
barrel hud been towed out into the
stream and turned adrift, the brisk
southwest breeae bore it in toward the
breakwater, which it touched just before
taking the llret tumble over the electric
company's dam. The wind and the tur

Homestead In lhe City.
The erection of a house on the vacant
land between the Catholic church prop
erty and the river front, and enclosing
the property with a fence, with a view
of filing a homestead on the land, by W.
L. Sniduw, has stirred tip considerable
interest in real estate circles during the
week in this city.
Mr. Snidow bases his claim to the
right of homestea ling the land on the
fact that the government plat of the Mu
Loughlin claim show s that the meander
line of the Willamette river intersects
Water street at that point and as a con
sequence all land outside of the meander
line and beyond the street is yet govern
land and not included in the McLough
T. L. Charman is also a claimant to
the land by virtue of a tax title and
claims a goo I chain of the title for the
property involved. Conceding the fact-
that the government plat shows the me
ander line of the river even to encroach
on Water sireet, it is held that the Mo-
Loughlin plat of the town, showed a por
tion of land between the street and the
river, that congress recognized that plat

to Dr. McLoughlin and giving it to the
state for school purposes, and that the
state's sale to the McLoughlin heirs was
a further confirmation of the legal ex j
istence of the strip. The McLoughlin
heirs sold to the Oregon Steam Naviga

Dye Tuesday eveuing, aud all present
were pleased to have the regular lesson
omitted and its place supplied by an
impromptu lecture on art by Colonel
Kobt. A. Miller. The colonel is a readv,
fluent speaker and bis knowledge of the
subject gathered from his own artistic
experience aud personal acquaintance
with leading artists of the day, enabled
him to treat the subject both from the
craftman's and connoisseur's point of
yiew and the talk was very instructive.
Arrangements have been made by the
circle to attend the meeting of the His
torical society, to be held at the First
Congregational church, in Portland,
Monday evening. The popular feature
of the evening's entertainment will be a
lecture on the Hudson Bay company by
Mrs. C. II. Dye. All the- members of
the different circles in this city are iu
vited and will attend in a body, de
duced rates have been obtained from the
