Progress That Han Been Made at Ore
OREGON CITY, Feb. 13. Affairs afo
fast getting into an orderly condition at
the new electric power station. The stone
crushers, car tracks, hoisting engines and
cranes, and a maze of false work of all
kinds, have, to a large extent, been re
moved, and the first section of the build
ing stands practically complete. This sec
lion includes the pair of water-wheels for
the pumps, three pairs of wheels to run
three dynamos of GOO horse-power each,
and the pair of wheels for the two ex
citers, of 400 horse-power each. All of
these water-wheels are installed and prac
tically ready for service. There is only
one dynamo here, and that is expected to
be running by March 1. The other two
will be here about 60 days later, taking
the places of the machines destroyed in
the Portland fire. Just now, the short
dam to connect the piesent wall of the
canal and the lower end of the completed
section of the power-house is being built.
When that rhall be finished, the upper
section of the old canal wall will be re
moved, and the water will rest against
the power-hcuse, and only the massive
gates will keep it from the penstocks and
waiting wheels within.
The Electric Company is, also, building the
dam at the north end of the enlargement
of the canal, and In about two weeks It is
expected the old wall will be torn away
and the water let out to the concrete wall
built early In the season. This -will In
crease the width of the canal by SO feet
along TOO feet of its course abreast of the
Crown paper mills. This Improvement is
made necessary in order to supply water
to the new mills to be erected this year
by the Crown company. It will also im
prove the navigability of the canal. The

A stranger dined at the Nickel lunch
counter today and paid for his meal with
a counterfeit sliver dollar. He was ob
served to have a considerable number
of coins of similar appearance, all being
new. When the nature of the piece
passed to the restaurant man was dis
covered, the matter was put into the
hands of the police, and Marshal Burns
went to Portland to try to find the man.
The people of Clackamas station have
appointed a committee, consisting of C.
F. Clark, James Roots. Hiram Longcoy,
A. Mather &nd L. E. Wise, to investigate
and report upon the feasibility of getting
an electric motor-line to that section.
They are In earnest about the enterprise
and will have a road. If it be at all prac
ticable. The plan now most talked of Is
to connect with the East Side railway at
Gladstone. Several bonuses and rights-of-way
have already been volunteered. -

CHICAGO. Feb. 13. Wheat today received
transitory relief from the monotony caused by
dullness and heavy declining prices, when about
the middle of the session Llerpool reported an
advance of Ytfjlbi, corn also throwing some of
Its strength into the market. There was but
scant encouragement for the bulls, taking ev
erything as a whole, and the temporary relief
proved unavailing and unsubstantial. There
was considerable gossip from Argentina today.
One report gave out that the exportable supply
now available in that coutnry was 1,500,000
tons. The Argentine consul at New York was
quoted as stating that 150,000 tons was a prob
able close estimate. A New York exporter had
private mail advices from Liverpool, stating
that up to January 21, 80 steamers had been
chartered to carry grain from Argentina. Brad
street's report of a decrease in the world's visi
ble supply of 5CS.000 bushels was disappointing.
and was the reason of a major portion of the
late selling, the pressure of which weakened
the market at the close. Receipts were light,

Boston "Wool Trade.
BOSTON, Feb. 13. The American Wool and
Cotton Reporter will say tomorow of the wool
trade: At first glance, the market would seem
to be rather quieter than it was Jast week,
which might perhaps be attributed to the
weather interference with trade, the cold wave
with the accompanying blizzard having been in
evidence for about half of the period. Never
theless, the innate vitality of this market is
such that it required a lower temperature than
the minimum of last week to very sensibly de
press it, so we find the volume of business
transacted during the period under review to be
quite up to the weekly average since January:
that is to say, upward of 3,000,000 pounds of
all kinds of 'wool. We find, however, no ma
terial change in market conditions. As wc said
last week, the demand is quite general, and in
cludes every sort named In the list usually of
Becrljolun's Grain Report.

"A body of troops had been sent forward
from Grenoble by them to arrest the
march of the returned Emperor. It was
met by the advance guard of the volun
teers marching' Paris-ward. Both parties
halted until Napoleon himself came up.
Bonaparte did not hesitate for a moment,
but dismounted and advanced alone. Some
paces behind him came 100 of his Guard
with their arms reversed. There was
perfect silence on all sides until he was
within a few yards of his troops. He
then halted, threw open his great coat so
as to show the star of the Legion of
Honor, and exclaimed: "If there be
among you a soldier who desires to kill
his general, his Emperor, let him do It
now! Here I am!" This speech operated
like an electric shock, and the cry of,
"Live the Emperor!" burst Instantly
from every lip.
This is but one more instance showing
the strong hold Napoleon had upon tha
hearts of his people. "Speak honestly,
Old Mustach," said he to one of his sold
iers, "Coulds't thou have the heart to kill
thy Emperor?" The man dropped his
ramrod into his gun to show It was not
loaded and answered "all the rest are tha

London cablegram says: The stock market to
day opened dull, but closed active and strong.
The rally was mainly owing to the rise in tem

hopes that the republicans may help pas3 a
gold-bord bill. There was a sharp rally In
Grand Trunk and Canadian Pacific on buying
of the former of a good -nature. Small trans

A Mnnlerons Convict.
Late Monday afternoon an assault was
made- on Overseer Glimes of the jute mill
at the "Walla Walla penitentiary, by Con
vict Joseph Young, who is serving a sen
tence of nine years in the pen for assault
with intent to rob, committed in King
county. It appears that the loom at
which Young was stationed was not work
ing properly, and the overseer surmising
that the fault was with the convict, rep
rimanded him. Without warning Young
picked up a wooden spindle, which was
at his feet, and struck Glimes, felling
him to the ground. On attempting to get
rp he again was struck with this spindle
and floored before assistance arrived. The
overseer is not seriously Injured, but will
feel the effects of the blows for some
time. Two guards were near at band at
the time of the- trouble, but did not see it.
One of the guards, George Fletcher, has
already been discharged.
