WASHINGTON, Dec. 10, The river and

today, had under consideration some of
the Oregon projects. Assurance Is given
that a sufficient amount will be appro
priated for the mouth of the Columbia it
Insure the undertaking of the approves
project, but the amount alloted Is not yet
decided upon. Inasmuch as the engineers
recommend but $600,000, It Is not possible
that the amount will exceed that sum.
Siuslaw has been completely dropped
from the bill, but other minor Improve

Yaoulna yet to oc considered.
CcnsuH FlBurcH Correct.
The Census Office has again gone over
the enumerators' returns for Doth Salem
and Eugene and affirms the announce
ment of Saturday, that Salem's population
Is 25S and Eugene's 323C. It Is thought
there is no error as regards Eugene, but
dcubt exists as to Salem, owing to some
misunderstanding or oversight on the
part of the supervisor for the first dis
trict. When the state was divided into
enumerating districts, he asked for nine
enumerators for Salem, It being under
stood that each enumerator should make
returns for 1050 to 1500 persons. The de
partment thinks that in making returns
c-rtaln districts properly belonging to
Salem have been classed as separate precincts.

Snper-j Isor Winn Believes Figures
for Ensrene and Salem Are Correct.
ALBANY, Or., Dec. 10. Census Super
visor Winn says that the figures given In
icsterdaj's Oregonian of the population
of the principal cities of Oregon, so far
as this district Is concerned, are according
to tho recent enumeration. Including Sa
lem and Eugene, and he belloves are sub
stantially correct. Great care was taken
to make them complete, and in some
cases there was a. revision of the enumer
ate in. The figures show only the popu
lation Inside the city limits, and do not
Include the suburban population outside
the limits of the different cities, which in
some cases, particularly that of Salem, Is
considerable. In some cases since 1S90 the
boundaries have been materially changed
cont-acted rather than Increased. The
year 1S90 was In the boom period, when
most of the cities were spread out. and
In some cases the census was undoubtedly
ridded In order to assist in the boom
spirit of the day. This year every effort
was made to secure the actual population
of the different cities, and It was to the
interest of the enumerator as much aa
any one else to secure the full population
of his subdivision, and there Is every rea
son to believe this was done. The popu
lation of Albany is at least 1000 less than
has generally been estimated, but con
servative people believe that the figures,
SI i are substantially correct, while those
cf 10 years ago were probably higher than
the city was entitled to.

Illnesi of Secretary Dunbar.
Secretary of State Dunbar has been con
fined to his bed for over two weeks with
an attack of malaria and typhoid. It
was announced today that the fever has
left him, but his physicians say he will
not be ble to go to his office before Janu
ary 1. As this is the season in which the
Secretary's biennial report must be pre
pared. It Is especially Inconvenient for
him to be absent from his office work
at this time. Mr. Dunbar's Illness was
perhaps brought on In part by too close
application to his work, for he is at his
office early In the morning, and. after
giving personal attention to much of the
detail work of his department during the
day, returns and works several hours by
Trvo Lodges In One Hall.
The Salem lodge of Elks has recently
made an agreement with Chemeketa
Lodge I. O. O. F., by which both these
orders will occupy the lodgeroom In the
new Odd Fellows' temple. This arrange
ment Is very agreeable to both orders, for
It reduces expenses for the Odd Fellows
and gives the Elks an Ideal place of meet
ing. The only cause for repret Is that it
is found Impossible to carry the mounted
elk through the door of the lodgeroom.
This elk Is the prize won by the Salem
lodge at the street carnival In Portland,
It Is so large that It cannot be placed in
the new, lodgeroom.
