ANXIETY FOR HER SAFETY She Was Reported Off the Columbia River Bar Monday Morning, and Has Not Been Seen Since. Nothing has been heard or seen of the steamer F. A. Kllburn since Monday morning, when she parted company with the steamer Alliance off the Columbia JUver bar, and some anxiety Is felt con cerning her safety. She was expeciea ln on yesterday's high tide, but to cross the old ocean came and went and still not even the smoke of the missing coaster loomed up on the horizon. The weather was thick, however, and the lookout at the cape had difficulty covering a creat distance with his powerful glasses. The steamers Jeanle and Czarina, the former from Los Angeles, via San Fran cisco, and the latter from San Francisco direct, are also understood to be ouisiae. tooth havlnc left the Bay City last Fri day night, at which time the Kllburn also started for Portland. Reports from the mouth of the river late last night stated that the weather 3iad moderated considerably, ana smoother bar is looked for today. Yes terday dawned with a fierce wind sweep ing along the coast Irom tne soumwesi. and rain almost obscured the bar. The breaker continued rolling high all day. however, and under the circumstances Captain Merriam. of the Kllburn, prob ably considered it better policy to remain at sea another night than to take chances on the bar in the thick weather. The Kllburn has a heavy freight and manv oassenger." on board. She Is oper ated by the Watsonville Transportation Comnanr. She Is a staunch vessel, and Jf not delayed by the thick weather, her only reason for remaining outside can oe a breakdown in her machinery or steer- inE-cear. Shipping men are not ready to bolinvo that disaster has befallen tho craft, still they are at a, loss to know whv sho did not attempt to cross In yesterday. BIG WHEAT CARGOES. Two French Bnrks CIcur for the United Kingdom. Two large cargoes of wheat were cleared for Europe yesterday afternoon, 244,4Sl "bushels being the actual measurement of the two cargoes. Their combined value is estimated at $188,901. Both cargoes will go to Quccnstown or Falmouth for orders. The largest portion of this enormous auantlty of wheat was taken by the French bark Asle. which was cleared by Kerr. Glfford & Co., with 132.665 bushels. valued at $99,498. The remainder. 111.616 "bushels, was taken by the French bark La Rochejaquelln, whose manifest shows a value of JS9.49S. Both vessels dropped in the stream this morning, and, being fairly well supplied with sailors, may leave down without de lay. Tho crew of tho Asle tried to start trouble, but failed, and it is now ex pected that they will be willing to take tho vessel to sea without further remon strance. Their main alleged cause for complaint was that the bark had a loose rivet in her botton. as a result of hav Ing scraped bottom In one of the ports at which she touched on her way out. but tho officers and surveyors hold that the ship is in perfectly seaworthy condition. RAFT GOES ADRIFT. Immense Structure of Piling Gives Owners Another Scare. ASTORIA. Jan. 23. (Special:) The big: log raft went on another rampage last night and after drifting fully three miles "came to anchor" on the north side of the channel near the Dcsdemona Sands. The raft was hauled Into deep water yesterday after being stranded for several weeks and was supposedly safely anchored with two 600.0-pound mushroom anchors, one being placed at either end. On the ebb tide last night the raft dragged its anchors and drifted down until off the Flavel wharf, when It caught the force of the gale and the heavy sea and was carried to the north a distance of about 1500 feet, where the anchors held. Three of the Callcnder Navigation Company's steamers stood by all day and until after low water tonight and it still held its position. The raft is not aground, there being about 21 feet of water around it at low tide, and as soon as the sea goes down it will be towed to the dolphins re cently driven for it near Flavel.

The result of the conference with af portion of the own ers was fairly satisfactory, and It is now thought reasonably sure that it will not be necessary to resort to condemnation pro ceedings, which are both tedious and ex pensive, it. is recognizee mat once a case Is In the courts there would be long delays bcfore a decision could be reached . , . . ln lower courts, besides the possibility Ui u" "w1 Many of the property-owners had the j Impression that a deed for rights of way was a deed for nrnrvrfv. hnf Otr ittnm.v l vpN'urv ukrhm ihim tht-an. inro ai a convey title, but onlv rive the Hv r- mission to construct the sewer through the premises and repair it afterwards If necessary.

No op position to the sewer was encountered but. on the contrary, every one seems to understand that It is necessary and must come. Mr. McNary put special emphasis on the fact that Brooklyn can never take Its place among the progressive districts of the city without this sewer. Board Analyzing "Water From Dufur. The State Board of Health is now con ducting an Investigation Into the water supply of the City ot Dufur. Patt of the water used in Dufur Is secured from creek which flows close to the city, and It Is alleged that septic tanks have con tamlnated the stream.

IS AWAITING FRANCHISES Has a Deal "With tho Oregon Trac tion Company "Which It Hopes to Close, About the First of February. Still another electric line up the "Wil lamette Valley from Portland Is fore casted by the entry Into the field of the United Railways Company, now negotiat ing to take over the property and fran chises of the Oregon Traction Company, which projected an electric line to For est Grove, but after a little work last Summer, abandoned the enterprise. A meeting of the stockholders of the Ore gon Traction Company will be held the last of the present month and an offer made for the properties by the United Railways Company. It is expected the formal transfer will take place about February 1. should the Oregon Traction Company meet the advances now being made. In addition to the line to Forest Grove, the United Railways Company proposes to run a standard-gauge track out Sev enth street as far as Sheridan, then on Front and Water streets to the city lim its, and thence up the valley on the west side of the river, tapping the fertile country en route, and reaching Salem" and other valley towns. Just how far the read will go will depend upon circum stances. May Go to San Francisco. "We may go down to San Francisco." said W. D. Larrabce, one of the incor porators of the United Railways Com pany. Applications for v franchises, are now pending before the City Council, and if these are granted, the work of building the roads will begin at once. The project contemplates trolley roads to link together the nearby towns, caring only for such city traffic as Is found on the streets traveled by the cars of the company. That the backers ot tne proj ect expect to engage In the manufacture ox tneir own eieciric power is surmisca. although they have no definite plans along this line at the present time. In the building up of an intcrurban traffic. Mr. Larrabee sees a bright future for the company he represents. "This sort of u project grows when once start ed," he said. "No one can tell where a railroad company is going to stop after It gets under way. In Los Angeles four ears ago cars were run every hour to Hollywood, but now It Is necessary to run cars every five minutes. To Pasa dena from Los Angeles there Is a three- minute trolley service. The tourist travel there helps out the trolley business, to be sure, but there Is no reason why this should not become a factor here also. Report Los Angeles Success. I was one of the first to call attention to the fact that the Los Angeles country Is a delightful Summer resort as well as pleasant place to spend the Winter months, and only a few years ago South- ern California was known only as a Win -tcr resort. Now all that Is changed, and tourists spend their Summers In Los An geles to get away from the heat. There Is every reason to believe this city will become a favorite place for tourists to pass the heated season. The Forest Grove line and the track up the river to the south are the only projects we have definitely determined upon, but when we get better acquainted with the territory other branches may fol low. Just now we are waiting to acquire title to the Oregon Traction Company's property and to secure our franchises from the city. These are now in the hands of the street committee ot the City Council." The United Railways Company repre sents large California capitalists. M. H. French and J. Whyte Evans, who accom panied Mr. Larrabce here, have returned home, but will be In Portland again by the middle of next week, when the deal for the Oregon Traction Company's effects will probably be closed.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU Few Tfople Iteallre the Importance of Good Digestion Until It Is Lost. Many people suffer from dyspepsia and do not know It. They feel mean, out of sorts, peevish, do not sleep well, do not have a good keen appetite, do not have the Inclination and energy for physical or mental work they once had, but at the same time do not feel any particular pain or distress In the stomach. Yet all this Is the result of poor digestion, an Insidious form of Dyspepsia which can only be cured by a remedy specially Intended to cure It and make the digestive organs act naturally, and properly digest the food eaten. Bitters, after dinner pills and nerve tonics will never help the trou ble; they don't reach It. The new medical discovery does. It is calletf Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and Is a- specific for dyspepsia and Indigestion. It cures because It thoroughly digests all wholesome- food taken Into tin stomach, whether the stomach Is lit good -working order or not. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, by digesting- the food. Instead of making the worn out stomach do all the work, gives It a much needed rest and a euro of dyspepsia Is the natural result. When you are nervous, run down and sleepless, don't make the common mistake of supposing your nervous system needs treatment and fill your stomach with powerful nerve tonics which make you feel good for a little -while only to fall back farther than ever. Your nerves are all jight, but they are starved, they want""food. Nourish them with wholesomo every day food and plenty of It, well di gested, and you can laugh at nerve tonics and medicine. But the nerves will not be nour ished from a -weak, abused stomach, but when the digestion has been made perfect by the uso of this remedy all nervous symptoms disappear. Who ever heard of n man or woman blessed with a vigorous digestion and good appetite being troubled with their nerves? Good digestion means a strong- ner vous system, abundance of energy, and capacity to enjoy ths good things of life. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will cer tain! set your stomach and digestive organs right: they can't help but do It because they nourish the body by digesting- the food eaten, and rest the stomach. You get nourishment and rest at one and? tho same time, and that is all the worn out dyspeptic needs to build him up and give new life to every organ and an added zest to every pleasure. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are a god-send to tho army of men and women with weak stomachs and nerves and Justly merit the claim of being one of the most worthy medical discoveries of the time.
