STORM LOSS IS $500,000
Damage Resulting From Washouta
and Ruined Bridges Will Prob
ably Exceed That Estimate
When Repairs Are Made.
WASHOUT AT ARi'GTOX.
ARLINGTON. Or., Feb. 8. (Spe
cial.) Kpts has Just been received
here that train No. 2, a made-up
train from The Dalles, has been
caught between two washouta about
six miles west of this city. A hun
dred people are on the train. It will
be ten hours before the train can
move either way.
A small creek which runs throunh
the center of the city has become a
raging torrent and is flooding the
town. Citizens are frightened and
some are moving from their homes.
Two large barns were undermined
and collapsed and washed into the
Jt Is estimated that the loss in this
city will reach at least $100,000.
The main line of the O. R. & N. was
opened last nifrht, and No. 6, the Eastern
train, pot away on time at 8:15. This
is the first passenger train that has left
Portland over that line for six days.
The Spokane train could not be sent out
because of washouts on the WashinKton
division, and it is uncertain when that
part of the system will be opened. It
was expected, however, that the Spo
kane train of tonight will get through.
The steamer Spencer left at noon yes
terday for Bonneville with 100 east
bound passengers, and they were trans
ferred to the train at that point. This
will be the last steamer sent up the river
to connect with trains along the Colum
bia. Damage to the main line of the O.
R. & N. by the storms and snowslides
during the past week will probably reach
JT.flO.OOO.' This Is a rough estimate of an
official of the operating department, and
It Is likely this huge figure will be In
creased rather than diminished as more
detailed information is received.
Bills have not yet come In from con
tractors who furnished men in addition
to the railroad crews employed by the
company direct. Altogether there was a
email army at work shoveling snow and
working the plows. The labor bill alone
for clearing the tracks will run into a
large total. But the heaviest losses come
from bridges carried out and embank
ments washed away. When It is realized
that trouble extended almost all the way
from Portland to Huntington on the main
line and throughout the Washington
branches, it will be seen how widespread
the storm damage of the past week has
In addition to the renewal of tracks and
bridges is the item of lost business,
which is not a small part of the total
estimated loss. For five days no passen
gers or freight could.be taken. Much
business which would otherwise have
been handled at a good profit was turned
away. This loss Is included In the es
timate of $500,000.
Indirectly much of the embarrassment
was caused to the Southern Pacific by
the tie-up of the O. R. & X., which led
to an acute condition in the coal situ
etion and delayed freight trains materi
ally. If this could be figured up it
would add to the loss occasioned by the
The blockade of the line will necessitate
much future work in reballasting the
line injured by slides and In some cases
stretches must be entirely reconstructed.
This Is also part of the large loss oc
casioned by the unusual weather condi
tions of the past week.

Woodcraft Hall, yesterday afternoon
and found that a wise selection had
been made for its new home. For the
first time this season, music was elim
inated from the programme, and al
most the entire afternoon devoted to a
lecture given by William L. Finley on
"Home Life of Oregon Birds." As Is
usual with Mr. Finley's bird talks, this
was extremely interesting, and the pro
fute illustrations by means of col
ored stereopticon slides, added greatly
to the effectiveness of the lecture. Mr.
Finley has perhaps studied bird life
at closer range and more thoroughly
than any other man of the present day,
and has gained a National reputation
through his lectures and pictures.

Willamette River Is Falling at
MADISON BRIDGE USELESS
South Draw Rest of Burnside-Street
Structure Badly Weakened.
Stream Is Practically Clear
of Floating Driftwood.
"With the Willamette falling at all
points up the Valley, no further appre
hension Is felt at Portland, where the
flood subsided half a foot yesterday. At
midnight Thursday, the crest of the flood
reached the city, the weather bureau
gauge showing an extreme height of 22.5.
By 5 o'clock last night, the water had
fallen to 22 feet.
The river still raced through the har
bor at high speed yesterday, but there
was less drift and consequently less
danger to bridges and crafts moored in
the stream. There were no movements of
vessels, however, the swift water being a
menaoe to navigation and pilots feared
to attempt to take ships through the
The Madison draw Is out of order and
cannot be worked until repairs to the
bridge are made. Timbers of the draw
have been jammed by the running drift.
The Portland Bowing Club house struck
the bridge a heavy blow and this is be
lieved to have put the draw out of com
mission. The south draw rest of the Burnside
bridge is so weakened that had the river
risen a foot more it would probably have
been swept away. At the extreme end of
the rest half the piles have been broken
off by the vibration, and those that are
left are decayed. It is considered re
markable that the rest has stood the
torrent as well as it did. The pressure
has forced It against the pivot pier, so
that the pier has been moved about an
inch and a half out of line, making it
difficult to swing the draw. The pier Is
expected to settle back into line as the
water in the river falls.
Drift that accumulated against the
bridge piers had been about all cleared

The high stage of the river continues
to cripple the streetcar and city lighting
service. Trippers could not be run during
the rush hours last night and street
lights were not turned on until late. It
is expected the same difficulties will be
experienced tonight. Service was given
on all lines last night but all cars were
The prediction of District Forecaster

to its normal "Winter level.
FUEL FAMINE CONTINUES
No Coal to Be Had Until Steamer
Arrives From the Orient.
The fuel famine continues, and until
the arrival of the Portland & Asiatic
liner Numantia, coal laden, from Japan,
there is no prospect of release. The
Numantia may reach the harbor next
week. The coal will be disposed of at
the rate of $10.50 a ton.
Several carloads of coal, the property
of the Independent Coal Company are on
their way to the city, and at present they
are held up in a freight blockade at
Carbon Hill, Wash. The Company is en
tirely out of fuel and does not know when
this supply will reach the city.
In the meantime people must burn
wood, provided it can be had. "Green"
slabwood is selling at $2.23 a cord, and
dry at $3. There is plenty of this wood
but not enough teams to haul it. The
slabwood is often very poor, and beside
being green it is also watersoaked.
Dry fir wood cut Into stove lengths sells
at $7 a cord, and some consumers have
paid as high as $8. Small orders of this
wood are in great demand and the
frequency of these orders cause delay in
the delivery of larger loads.
