Tacoma, Wash., Feb. 4.--That
Chester Thompson will not be sent
to the asylum at Fort Stillacoom is
certain. There is a legal question

superintendent of the institution,
absolutely refuses to take charge of
him. : ! ;
i "I will resign if he is sent here,'.'
said Dr. Calhoun..
As the case stands, the boy has
been declared "not guilty" and the
court has no . further jurisdiction
over him. He cannot be sent to a
state penitentiary by the court, us
he is not a criminal in the eyes cf
the law. The probabilities are that
he will be eent to some nrivate asv-

Willamette Pulp & paper Company
is having trouble with it9 generators
on account of the back water in the
lower river. A large force of men
was busy last night at M'il A, try

pany has. closed on account of high
water. Ooe mill of the Willamette

AU this sweeping down from the
he ad waters of the different streams
is due to a combination of condi
tions unusual; yea,' remarkable. In
the first place, ; an unprecedented
amount of snow has fallen in the
mountains and foothills during the
past few weeks. Following this
sweep of territory in the northern
part of the United States and Can
ada. A bitter, bitter north wind
whistled like a gale through this
area, which moved gradually west
ward until Oregon and ..Washing
ton hung, upon ..its edge. Then
came the weather man's prediction
that another protracted cold snap
was at hand, for all indications
pointed toward the high pressure
zone enveloping the entire region.
But the weather man was fallible
for out somewhere in j the Pacific
Ocean, hundreds of miles off the
the coast, an area of low barometer
pressure was gradually forming,
bearing eastward. It was Zeph
yrus marshaling his Eubtle forces
for a battle with the titanic Boreas.
The two wind gods, the fierce, the
raging, the bitter, the cold Boreas,
and the gentle, rollicking, balmy
and warm Zepbyrus, were sweeping
toward each other, and the contact
was unavoidable. , The first intima
tion of the weather office had , was
when the vanguard puffs of Zepby
rus tossed up the ocean off the coast
and hurled a roaring surf booming
along the shingle.. : This meant
danger and eent the storm : signals
up at all poicts. Boreas' progress
was watched for it bad been report
ed from the zero regions in the
East. . .
Then, when the giants met for
the struggle it looked as it the cold
and fiercy north wind would con
quer, bat be was vanquished and
ariven from the field, and zephyrus
held the day. Down eank the ba
rometer and up jumped'the mercu
ry, and the wind sang a chant of
victory. The white-blanketed hills
fait the breath of the balmy Zephy'
rus and soon they, changed to 1
snowless waste of barren slopes,
The waters came down from the
heights, they surged Into the placid
streams and choked them with rag
ing, turbulent floods. They up
rooted trees, they ripped out bridg
es, boats were buffeted by them,
rafts of logs and driftwood crept
faster and faster along the creets,
and glutted with this influx from
its tributaries the Willamette soon
started on its present rampage.
These factors played leading parts
in the dangerous freshet now pre
vailing, and likely to grow worse
during the next few days.

Mr. Olney ajcaljzfd the first article
of the treaty and saidr
"If that was all there was to it,
it might be poesibe to argu, though
I think without success, that tbeie
was a conflict between Japanese
treaty rights and the rights ordin

the state of California."
Quoting article two, dealing with
the police power of the state, Mr.
Olney says that Japan is wholly
without cauee of complaint against
California by reason of her public
school system, and that the United
States is without legal ground of in
terference with that system.

there is he would not consider Ja-

The Washington Herald seid this
"At the-vsry moment when the
administration and the California
delegation were in agreement, when
self-restraint and the preservation
of good humor were necessary to
insure the continuance of harmoni
ous relations, Senator Perkins,
leader of the California delegation,
delivered a semi-public address in
which he predicted that war was
inevitable between Ji,an and the
United States' Frie.ids of Senator
Perkins are chagrined and humiliat
ed over this un-xpected outburst
and cannot understand the motive
that actuated it. It was said yes
terday that his prediction would
have come with bad grace at this
time from any member of the Cali
frrnia delegatiun, but the fact that
Senator Perkins ispartof the treaty
making power of the government
actuates the offerjse."
Senator Perkins today by way of
extenuation said that he had not
predicted war. Ha .thought any
serious difficulty between the two
countries could be Bettled by arbi
tration without resort to war.
