TIED UP BY FLOOD
0. R.&N. Bridge Washed Out
BAKER CITY HOUSES IN PERIL
Rising Waters Threaten to Change
River Channel-Swift Current Is
Fast Eating Away Bank In
the North End of City.
BAKER CITY, Or., April 15. (Special.)
The Hoods are becoming very serloua in
this part of the state. The snowfall last
"Winter was unprecedented and during the
past week the weather has heen warmer
than during any April month since the
"Weather Bureau was established. The
warm weather has melted the snow, and
every mountain stream is a torrent.
Powder River, which comes down from
the Sumpter Valley, and the John Day,
which flows Into the Snake Blver near
Huntington, have been giving the Sump
ter Valley and the O. R. & N. trouble
for several days. The Sumpter Valley
Railroad ceased to run trains on account
of washouts Monday and today all traffic
on the O. R. & N. east of this city was
blocked by the washing out of a bridge
near "Weatherby, 16 miles west of Hunt
ington. A large force of men was rushed to the
scene of the washout, but It will tako
three days at least to repair the damage.
The floods are becoming worse by reason
of heavy rains In the high mountains,
and it Is feared other bridges will go out
All of the wagon bridges are out, which
makes it impossible to transfer passengers
or mall today and it is not expected that
a transfer will be possible tomorrow.
The damage to property in this city is
becoming a serious problem. One house
In the northern part of town will prob
ably be carried away tonight, as the river
has changed its course and is cutting
away the bank very fast Everything Is
being done to stem the tide and turn the
current, but it is of no avail.
Captain Tice, an ex-Army Engineer of
ficer, who has looked over the situation,
says that a rise of 12 inches will result
In the river changing its channel in the
north end of the city. This will be seri
ous, as several fine residences will be bad
ly damaged, If not ruined.
Powder River has fallen a few inchcc
this afternoon, but a big raise is feared
tonight when the floods from Sumpter
Valley come down.
O. R. & N. CUTMN TWO.
Flood in Burnt River Prevents the
Trains From Running Through.
The great flood in Burnt River, due to
the melting of snow by the recent hot
spell, has cut the O. R. & N. Railroad in
two near Weatherby and no trains will
run through between Portland and the
East until the break is repaired. Trains
will leave at the usual time and will
run In each direction on each side of
the washout, but the company can give
no assurance that it will be able to trans
fer passengers across the washout until
better reports are received from the scene
of the trouble.
The Information received at headquar
ters is that some piles were washed out
of a bridge across Burnt River, where It
flows through a narrow gorge in the
Greenhorn Mountains, and that the em
bankment has been washed out in some
places. All other streams In Eastern
Oregon are out of their banks, but no
other washouts have occurred and the
road is thoroughly patroled to avoid
danger to trains. A large force has been
sent to the scene of the washout with
every appliance for making repairs rap

UA GRANDE. Or., April 15. (Specials
There seems to be no change for the better
In the conditions of high water In this
section of Grand Ronde. It Is a little
cooler today, but not enough to prevent
the snow from melting in the mountains.
Oro Dell is in a dangerous condition,
and many of the people are still leaving
their homes in the bottom lands. Re
ports from Perry and Hlllgard today say
that there Is no immediate danger to
property, though railroad accidents are
Btill being feared.

FOREST GROVE OFFICIALS WIN
Regulation of Saloons Is the Province
of the City Council.
HH.LSBORO, Or., April 15. (Special.)
Judge McBrlde this morning" held that
the Mayor of Forest Grove had the right
under the charter to vote as a Council
man In the regulation of city affairs,
and this settles the Forest Grove liquor
question, sending the celebrated Watson
case back to the city for disposition.
The findings of fact and conclusions of
law hold that the ordinance regulating
the sale of liquor is valid, and, further,
that the charter warrants the right of
the Mayor to become a legislative part
of the Councllmanlc body in case there
is a tie vote.
The liquor element of Forest Grove
will now make an experiment with which
they hope to put at rest all litigation.
One of the interested parties has con
ceived the idea of forming and incor
porating a Commercial Club, the mem
bers only to be supplied with liquor. The
club Is to be a close corporation, with
articles not dissimilar to those of met
ropolitan clubs, with a nominal fee for
membership to pay the expenses of
The promoters hold that in this way
they can buy and sell liquor among them
selves and not be amenable to a city

Crook Will Give Republican Majority
PRINEVILLE, Or., April 15. (Special.)
The coming county campaign promises
to be one of unusual Interest and entirely
free from dirty politics. The candidates
on both tickets are unalterably opposed
to the division of the county, which has
in times past been an Issue on several oc
casions, owing to the large area embod
ied In Crook County. This amounts to
more than SOOO square miles and must
necessarily present several sections with
topographic features that are antago
nistic but the resolutions of both con
ventions prevent any action looking
toward division for at least two years yet
As both parties have declared for pub
lic Improvements by building new county
roads and buildings, no Issue Is left save
party Issues. This gives the Republicans
decidedly tho best of the fight as they
have a normal majority of at least 300,
and as all breaches in the party have
been righted, It Is confidently 'expected
that tho entire Republican ticket will be

FIRST DAY'S FISH LIGHT I
SALMON FISHERMEN HAVE POOR
SUCCESS IN THE COLUMBIA.
Prices Paid by the Packers Is Satis
factory Competition May
Make Them Higher.
ASTORIA, Or., April 15. (Special.)
The Spring fishing season on the Colum
bia River opened at 6 o'clock this morn
ing and the first day or tho season was
somewhat of a disappointment, as the
deliveries at the canneries and cold
storage plants were much lighter than
had been expected. Not over a quarter
of the fishermen went out last night and
they report making very light catches,
but more are going out tonight so that
by tomorrow a fair knowledge of the
amount of fish In the river can be secured.
There was no trouble over the prices
paid for the deliveries today, as the
rates fixed by the packers of 5 cents per
pound for small fish, and 6 cents per
pound for all weighing 27 pounds or over
was accepted by the fishermen. All the
local packers adhered to these rates with
the exception of J. Lindenberger. who
pay3 6 cents for fish weighing between
25 and 27 pounds, and 7 cents for all over
tho latter weight.
As soon, however, as the size of the
run in the river is deflnitely ascertained,
these prices are liable to be changed, as
all the packers want fish badly and are
apparently willing to pay high rates for
them if necessary. None of the can
neries were operated today, but all aro
ready and expect to be packing tomor
row. The seining grounds are still idle and
none of the larger ones will begin opera
tions until after the aanger of a freshet
is past, with the exception of those on
the jetty sands and at Sand Island where
the high water has no effect. The In
side traps in Baker's Bay are fishing, but
none of them have been lifted yet.
Captain Dodge, who, for a number of
years, has been master of steamers ply
ing between the Columbia and Oregon
coast points, is at tho head of a new
company which will erect a salmon can
nery on the Siletz River. He left this
evening to begin work on the erection of
the cannery and he expects to have the
plant ready for operation next Fall.

business for the Alaska companies, has

not applied to the local police for aid.
The Six Companies have taken the mat
ter up, and they have sent out their re
tainers to round up the runaway fisher
men. High Water Prevents Good Catch.
OREGON CITY, Or., April 15. (Special.)
This morning, marking the opening of
the salmon fishing season, there was but
a small shipment of this product to Port
land. There are two reasons given for
the falling off in the shipment. In the
first place the stage of both the Willam
ette and Clackamas Rivers at this point
are at such a stage as to render satis
factory fishing impossible, both streams
being filled with logs and driftwood, mak
ing it practically' Impossible for the use
of a net.
It Is also claimed by fishermen that
salmon are not as plentiful In this section
as they have been In seasons heretofore.

Physical strength is derived from food.
If a man has insufficient food he
loses strength. If he has no food he
dies. Food is converted into nutrition
in the stomach. It depends on the
strength of the stomach to what extent
food eaten is digested and assimilated.
People can die of starvation who have
abundant food to eat, when the stomach
and its associate organs of digestion and
nutrition do not perform their duty.
Thus the stomach is really the vital
organ of the body. If the stomach is

considered as a whole is made up of its

of "weak" stomach will be distributed
among the organs which compose the
body. If the oody is weak because it
is ill-nourished that physical weakness

stomach and physical strength is created
in the stomach and distributed from it,

Wine of Cardui is the best medicine to take at this time,
because it is the most successful menstrual regulator known to
the science of medicine because it is a simple vegetable
extract, perfectly harmless to the most delicate child. Every
mother who knows what Wine of Cardui will do always gives
it to her daughter.
Wine of-Cardui, in removing the dangers from young
girlhood, smoothes the way to uninterrupted health through life.
With menstruation started right much of the danger which
surrounds womanhood is warded off. Irregular menstruation
induces bearing down pains, ovarian troubles, nervousness and
the many ills which make young womanhood unhappy, mother

should ask is, "What is wrong with my
stomach?" If there are weak lungs,
the condition also points to rweak"
stomach. All physicians know that the
cure of consumption is but a question of
nutrition. If you can put flesh and fat
on the body the lungs will take care
of themselves. The one thing which
baffles the physician in the cure of lung
and other diseases is "weak" stomach.
If the stomach was strong he'd feel sure
of a cure. In fact, then, any condition
of physical weakness at once suggests
weak stomach. When the stomach is
made strong, the whole body regains
strength and every organ of the body,
heart, liver, lungs, kidnej's, etc., shares
in this newly gained strength.
It is because Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery cures diseases of the
stomach and other organs of digestion
and nutrition that it gives strength to
the whole body. When the weak stom
ach is made strong by "Golden Medical
Discovery" then food is perfectly di-
fested and assimilated, the nutrition
erived from food is distributed to the
several organs of the body, and the
"weak" heart which was weak because
it was not well fed becomes strong
again. So with the weakness of the
other organs of the body, it is cured
when the stomach is cured.
"I am pleased to tell you that three
bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery has cured my husband of liver
complaint and indigestion," writes Mrs.
G. Hall, of Novar, Ontario. "He suf
fered for a long time with pain in his
right side and had to leave off work
several times. Tried three doctors here
but they did not do any good ; also tried
several kinds of patent medicines but
received no benent. Then I wrote to
you and you advised us to try your
'Golden Medical Discovery. We got
a bottle at once and before my husband
had taken all of this one bottle he was
feeling ever so much better and able to
work again. He continued with the
'Discovery until he had taken three
bottles and is now feeling better than
for years. We both thank you, and, if
you think by publishing this it will
benefit other sufferers, you are at liberty
to do so. We have got several friends
to try your Golden Medical Discovery
for different complaints and I am pleased
to say that it has never failed. We wish
you every success."
