THE FLOOD OF 61-62.
FORMATION FEOM TAEIOUS

OF THE TIME.

' Rescue of Kendall and the
Smith Stewart "Fam- .
ily Other Incidents.
The absorbing topic of conver
sation on the street and in public
daces durine the past week is the
late high water and former floods
lire number of subjects for an ar
gument and dispute wmcn comes
. out of a discussion of these events
. seems innumerable. "Did the last
previous high rater occur in 1890
or 1891?" "How ccuch higher was
the vvater at that time than it was
this, week?" "How did that flood
"' compare with the flood of 61-62?"
"'Was the big flood in '6I1 or '62?"
"Was one rise ia the lat'er part
of December '61 and another the
rst part of January ,62?" All
these questions have been dkcussed
with considerable warmth, by -old
residents whose memories may
bays been treacherous and by new
comers wno nave gatnerea up a
iew threads of the high water, his
tory of the Willamette Valley.
Ihe Iimes will not attempt to
decide for any of the contestants,
further than to say that the flood
of 61-62 was the most : memorable
in the history of the state. It was
particularly disastrous jn this lo
cality. On last Sunday night
aright have been seen an occasion
al lantern flicker on - the opposite
side of the river, and now and then
a half submerged cow would ' in
dicate her discomfort' by a call for
assistance. On a Pundav" nip-hr in
the winter of 61 62 it was other
wise At that time on the east
side of the river 'there' was a village
of some pretention to which had
been given the name of Orleans by
its founder. Isaac Moore, Among
its Den Known inhabitants were
leaac Moore-, Mr. and Mrs. Philip

next dayi . In the mean time these
- two gentlemen, Philip : Phile and
others, were kept busy : with boats
William Lewis and I', wife were
young persons who-, occupied a
' email dwelling in the village, and
they were determined to remain
in tneir nine nome as long as pos-
siDie. Hoping and believing that the
water would recede. ; Before thev
- xook leave ot the house however, the
"wife was taken violently ill, and as
the rising waters dampened the
-straw . mattress upon - which she
lay, a baby girl was born to ithe
family." The necessity of her re-
tnoval was imperative, and - the
mother, and child and the bedding
"were placed in a skiff. - They -were
'then rowed to the residence of Mr.
Moore, and placed on - the ' second
'floor through the upper story .win

" the mother and child were biought
" to Corvallis, where they were able
"'to secure proper attention. As
'soon as possible after ;-daylight all
the women and children of Orleans
' were conveyed to the west side of
Uhe river,;; ; '
SDuririgjhe night and following
"morning several houses were wash
ed away on the east side, . among
which was the one owned by Mr.
Summer, whose family took refuge
in the hay loft with Mrs. Gerhard;
one belonging, to Philip Phile,
which was afterward hauled back
Beach residence at .- the ferry,

result ot this Hood was that it killed

of Corvallis . '
ine high water of 61-62 carried
awaj' the Mary's river bridge, It
had been built the previous fall.
V hen it became known that the
bridge was threatened.. Tim Dona
hue and a man named Dodee were
sent with ropes and other applian
ces to secure it. : When the men
had gotten well onto the structure
to begin operations it floated away
witn the workmen. As it passed
the terry with Donahue and Dode

still aDoara, Minor Swick, - Benia
: .ran . .,. , J
mm moean ana xsat .Lane were
endeavoring to free the ferry boat
from a large log which had lodged
against it. The two former went
to the rescue of Tim and Dodge,
and hnding a large - rope on the
bridge conceived the ; idea that the
structure might be snubbed to a
pine tree which stood on a point at
tne mouth ot Uixon.creek. While
the others carried the line - ashore
and made fast to the tree. Mr.
Swick remained on the bridge to
conduct operations. But after all,
the snub rope broke and the bridge
passed on. Mr. Swick. was taken
off near the' John ' Stewart place a
mile or so bfelow town. . Here the
party had breakfast. J ' . - I
During the meal Mrs. Stewait.
whonow resides at the corner of
Second and Jackson streets, this
city, urged Mr. Swick and. Mr,
Pilbean to proceed down the river j
in their skirr and rescue the fam
lly ot bmith Stewart, who then
owned, and resided on what is how
best known as the Eglin jplace.
Airs. John Stewart felt certain that
her relatives were, in danger ; The
gentlemen complied with ler re
quest, - and : vas -. they neared the
Smith Stewart home, thev found
the house empty,- but Jehial - Ken
dall was near by clinging in a small
tree with the flood sweeping against
his legs." Mr. Swick describes the
situation as such, on account of the
current, that it would have been im
possible to rescue Mr. Kendall had
they not : providentially discovered i
a clothes line which had been stretch
ed on trees in the orchard. By at
taching a stick to one ena of the
June the boatmen were -able, after
many attempts, to cast it - within
reach of Mr. Kendall, who made it
fast to a tree. . With the aid of the
rope thus attached the boat was
drawn into such a position as en
abled Mr.- Swick to pull Kendall
aboard. :, A safe landing was made
on high ground some distance be
low the Stewart bridge.
; Mr.' Kendall came into the pre
dicament in which he ; was found,
by going to the rescue of the Smith
Stewart family in company with

maus me most aistressing in
cident of the .great flood .was the
drowning of , three children of : Mr,
and Mrs. Abel George, The fam
ily owned and lived on the Palmer
place on the Kiger.' island. Mr.
George was conveying his family
to a placef safety and when about
to make the landing on P. . Avery's
rarm, a short distance south of town
the boat was in some manner capsiz
ed Mr. George first devoted his en
ergiesto saving his wife. With
her he secured a .hold, on a tree
that stood in the water a ; consider
able distance from the bank. . He
decided hastily on the course to
pursue, .and with his belt tied his
wife by the wrist to a limb.: He
then swam ashore and after a vain
effort to render his children assist
ance, went for , other , help. .. . When
he returned,, 4 Mrs.-r Georgey had
chilled to unconsciousness and al
lowed her body to swing into - the
water. 'i When rescued she, was al
most dead, and it was many 'weeks
before she recovered. Only two of
the children were ever found. Three
years ago "Mrs. -George visited
Corvallis from "Southern Oregon

Paris, Jan 28. The altitude of
the Government of France relative
to the claims against Venezuela is
that the French claims are in tlSa
nature of a first lien , on the customs
receipts, and thaty under no circum
stances, are they to be subordina
ted to other claims. This; view has
been communicated to the : repre
sentatives of the allies, to ' Minister
co wen ana to the State Depart
ment at Washington: -For- this
reason the : officials here- express
confidence that no: arranementa
wiil be made between-; Mr Bowen
and the allies over those of.: Franca
and other powers similarly situated.
It is said that 40 per cent of the
customs receipts will probablv be
surhcient tositisfy France,the allies
and all the other claimants Pre
vious to the meeting of Mr." Bo wen
end the representatives of the allies
trance secured an agreement - with
Venezuela that the French claims
shall receive treatment equal to
that given to any ether power. The
view is held here that Venezuela
and all others taiipg part . a the
negotiations fchould ik - ebgoizan

iceist. that equal terms are ' abso
