more dungerous than dynamite, and
when It explodes it exerts more force
The tremendous force of the explo
sion was showu In many ways, some
of them being in the nature of freaks.
For instance, a pine scantling was
driven from the power house where
the explosion occurred across the
street mid was firmly imbedded in the
brick wall of an Hpartmeut house. The
scantling must have beeu going with
the velocity of a projectile fired from
a high power gun to tenetrate the wall
hs it did.
The damage to property from the
explosion Is estimated at $500,000 to
ftloo.OtiO, windows being shattered for
blocks. The damages that the New
York Central railroad will have to
pay because of the twelve persona
killed and the 125 or more Injured
will probably be more than a million
Small Fire Causes Panic
Because of tnailetiate tire protec

dor on the matter of lire, ant when
the gong sounded on Saturtlay a
small-sized panic tvns on. It was
the chimney of the opera house burn
ing out anil In so spectacular a way
that it had all the npiwarance of the
real thing. Nothing serious resulted,
but It had all the ear marks of com
edy. While a couple of the boys
were up on the roof putting out the
tire with snow balls, Chester Cr-ilg
was on the roof of the Knterprlse
olllce furiously pounding the bell
with a hammer, f r the rope had
gone on a strike. The only cool one
was the man who climbed up two
stories with a quart of water In a
dipper, aud the nolo plajers In the
pool hall, who went on with their
game, stopping only to Inquire If
they thought they would have time
to finish the game. If a fire should
break out In White Salmon, the only
thing that could be done Is to sit on
the opposite side of the street and
figure up your Insurance policy.

and Wright voting yes and Hall and
Smith no, and Arnold not present,
the ordinance appointing A. J. Derby
city attorney wan finally passed at
the council meeting Monday night
and Is now up to Mayor llartwlg for
his signature. When the measure
was taken up for a itecoud reading,
Councilman Smith moved that it be
referred to the judiciary committee.
This was seconded by Coudcllmau
Hall, but the motion was lost. The
ordinance was then placed on Its
final passage and carried. It Is be
lieved that the ordinance will be
vetoed by the mayor.
An ordinance also passed the first
reading providing for an Increase In
the salary of the recorder from $25 to

tising the sale of the water bonds In
the sum of $00,000 was passed, with
the provision that the Interest rate
shall not exceed 6 per cent. The date
for opening bids Is fixed for April 3rd.
It was stated by the recorder that
be had received a communication
from the Hood Klver Light & I'ower
Company, stating that the injunc
tion suit against the councllmen bad
been dismissed, but that he had left
the communication at his oflice. The
suit of Laura F. ltatchelder against
the city, lu regard to the public high
way adjoining the Batehelder prop
erty, was discussed. The last action
In the suit was taken In July, 1909,
when It was referred for the taking
of testimony ou request of the city
attorney. Since then It has beeu
allowed to languish.
Councllmeu llugglus, as chairman
of the Huauce committee, reported
that Craudall & Koberts had been en
gaged to audit the city's accounts at
a charge of $ 7 per day, the lowest
bid that bad been made. Council
man Broslus, of the health commit
tee, asked that the city marshal be
instructed to notify owners of cess
pools lu district No. 8 that they must
be closed aud the outhouses re

ted to the council. 1 he recorder
was Instructed to make an Itemized
bill of the expenses of the receut bond
election ami collect the same from
the Light rower Compauy. Ad
dltlonal street lighting was discussed
and a motion to place lights ou 12th
street was referred to the fire aud
water committee. As a member of
the fire aud water committee, Coun
cilman llugglus reported that his at
tention had been called to the fact
that there was no rear exit to the
Monroe Theatre and that Its other
modes t f egress were not considered
safe. The matter was referred to
the proper committed for action.
Councilman Smii h brought up the
matterof having 12th street straight
ened out at the corner of May, saying
that he had Deen told that the prop
erty holders would give the necessary
ground. Councilman Hrosius stated
that the proposition had lieeu wres
tled with tor some time, but that the
street commit tee had U-en unable to
get a satisfactory agreement with
the iidjolning property owners.
Councilman Wright said that he had
lieen approached by one of the prop
erty owners with the proposition to
give the required ground If the city
would cancel an assessment for Im
provements against his property for
$"2(VI. This he thought was out of the
question. As the matter stood, he
said he Is'llevetl the city would have
to buy the ground If the street was

BEAT WHITE SALMON
Notwithstanding the fact that
ouly one niemls-r of the Hois! River
High School's first basket ball team
was lu the game, the Iih iiI boys put
It over the White Salmon team Frl
day evening and won by :i score of 15
to H. The home players were Frans,
Sosey, Allen, Sherrleb and Bell The
game, which was refereed by Prof,
i rites, was a fast one, in which there
was considerable roughing. The
cause of the absence of the first team
players was on account of their too
enthusiastic devotion to athletics
and uot quite enough application to
their studies, causing the faculty to
bar them. It Is expected that they
will soon regain the lost ground,
however, ant! get Into the game.
