Snake Kiver Boats Stop Be
cause of Freight Blockade.
LEWISTON. Idaho, Feb. 8. (Special.)
Between the freight congestion at
Rlparia, "Wash., caused by the O. R. &
N. not being- able to fret sufficient
freight cars to move the tonnage re
ceived by the boats running from this
city, thereby stopping navigation on
the Snake River, and landslides on the
I'alouse and Clearwater branches of
the Northern Pacific, Lewlston was for
more than 12 hours today commercially
cut off from the world.
Some time after midnight this morn
ing a slide occurred Just east of Por
ters, four miles east of this city. The
Spokane flyer was delayed almost five
hours reaching the city. The north
bound train was held here until the
Spokane train arrived. The Clearwater
branch Is completely blocked by half a
dozen or more slides.
The train which runs between here
and Stites Is blocked at Ahsahka, and
Is unable to get either way because of
slides. Every section foreman on the
Clearwater branch today reported ava
lanches of dirt and rock. The largest,
about 30 tons, slid down the mountain
side between Lenore and Ahsahka.
"With good luck the tracks may be
cleared for tomorrow afternoon's
The rising temperature and slight
rain have caused an inundation of
many yards and cellars. Near the
County Courthouse the ground Is
frozen and the water, being unable
to soak in, runs off Normal Hill In
torrents, coming down to the flat by
Poo's Grade. An area of several acres
has already been submerged to a depth
of about a foot. If the water rises
much higher, some of the people liv
ing In that vicinity will have to either
move out or take to the second floors.
Neither the Snake iior Clearwater
Rivers rose an Inch today. The lat

WAL.LA "WALLA HAS XO TKAIXS
"Washouts Cut Off Communication
to and From That City.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Feb. 8.
(Special.) No trains reached Walla
Walla today from any direction. Until
today the W. & C. R.. connecting with
the Northern Pacific at Pasco, has been
the only rail communication with the
outside world for a week, but the train
bound from Pasco to tills city is held
up at Lamar, about 15 miles from here.
The cause of the delay is presumed to
be a washout, as rain fell all over the
vicinity during the day, melting the
snow and threatening to turn this part
of the state Into a huge swamp.
The weather has turned cooler this
evening and the sky is clear, with no
Indications of more rain. Traffic con
ditions on the O. R. & N. are thorough
ly demoralized. Pendleton is entirely
cut off from communication with this
city, tfot only Is every railroad be

of commission, but the wagon road is

will probably be threo days before It Is
possible to connect In any way with
the main line either for Spokane, Port

& C. R. expect to have their road re
paired by tomorrow noon, when the
train now at Lamar, on which is the
Red Feather Company, will be brought
to this city and another train run to
Pasco to connect with the Northern
Pacific. A report came to this city by
wire this evening stating that the
Northern Pacific east of Pasco was
washed out, cutting off all means of
rail communication with Spokane. In
spite of the rain which fell over this
valley today, there has been no damage
to property In this city.
WILL RF.CEIVE XO FREIGHT
Northern Pacific I 3ot Able to
Handle Perishable Products.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash., Feb. 8.-(Spe-cial.)
The Northern Pacific freight of
fice here received an order from Super
intendent Beamor not to accept for ship
ment perishable freight. The order ap
plies to all the stations west of Pasco.
How long the order Is to last depends
upon the time the high waters continue
in the valley and the conditions of the
road for the handling of freight trains,
of which none have been moving in the
valley since Tuesday, except some local
freights that come In occasionally from
t he west.
Many farmers want to ship hay to Pu
get Sound, but they are unable to send a
bale out. The apple shippers are also
held up by this order.
The flood conditions in the valley are
not any worse than they were last night.
On the Satue much of the land has been
flooded, and the low lands below Alfalfa
are also under water, by reason of the
high water In Toppenlsh and Satus
Creeks. The Yakima River is rising
One hundred feet of the temporary
eastern approach to the Moxee bridge

occurred In the Yakima canyon between
here and Ellensburg and this afternoon's

All trains from the East since Monday
are due to arrive here between 4 o'colock

BIG LOG BOOM GOES OUT.
Flood Receding at Oregon City.
Mayor Orders Water Boiled.
OREGON CITY. Or.. Feb. 8. (Special.)
The water in the Willamette has low
ered at least a foot today, and the danger
from flood is practically over. The Wil
lamette Pulp & Paper Company lost an
other large boom of logs today. The cur
rent tore them loose from their moor
ings and washed them down stream. It
is reported that there were at least a
million feet of logs In the boom.
The pumping station will probably be
able to resume Sunday. A fall of tlve feet
will be necessary before the pumps can
be used. The town of Willamette is in a
worse condition for water than Oregon
City. It depends on a spring on the river
bank which has been inundated by the
high water, and all the water for drink
ing purposes must be carried half a mile.
Mayor Caufleld gave orders today that
all drinking water must be boiled. In
Oregon City there Is apprehension of an,
epidemic on account of the water being
shut oft from the sewers. The Oregon.

LONG BLOCKADE AT AN END
Train Service on Northern Pacific
Was Resumed Last Night.
TACOMA, Wash., Feb. K. (Special.)
The Northern Pacific traffic blockade,
which has existed since Monday owing
to floods occasioned by chlnooks In the
Cascades, is at an end and trains began
arriving in Tacoma this afternoon and
will continue to do so, closely following
each other until conditions have again
assumed their normal status.
Word was received at the offices of
Assistant General Superintendent Palmer
that the complete line was opened at 10
o'clock and that trains had immediately
been dispatched. Everything Is now all

ATHENA SUFFERS A FLOOD
Sidewalks Are Afloat and Flouring
Mill Forced to Shut Down.
PENDLETON, Or., Feb. 8. (Special.)
Athena is again threatened with a seri
ous flood. According to a telephone mes
sage received here this evening, a warm
rain is melting the snow in the big flats
above the town. The walks in the lower
part of the city are already afloat, and
the water Is rising at the rate of three
Inches per hour. The O. R. & N. depot
Is flooded, and the large flouring mill
here has been compelled to close down.
More of the recently repaired railroad
track is sure to be washed out.
Very little rain has fallen In this city
and the river has not yet started to rise.
For the first time In six days the O. R.

Flood Damage in Linn County. '
ALBANY. Or., Feb. 8. (Special.) With
the receding of the flood, great damage
is apparent in this part of ..the valley.
For miles on both sides of the river
fences have been swept away, telephone
lines torn down and roads seriously dam
aged. Considering the unusual height of
the water the damage to bridges was
very small, however. It will take several
weeks in some localities to repair roads
Considerable cord wood was lost in this
part of the state. Fred Holmes lost
150 cords which he had cut to land In
Benton County Just across the river
from this city, and 60 cords belonging to
H .Bryant were swept away from the
peninsula between the Calapooia and
Willamette Rivers Just west of this city.

(Special.) The saloonmen of North
Yakima and Yakima City have agreed
not to sell any more liquor to Indians,
nor to sell to any one who is In the habit

terior, who has been here for a week or
two attempting to reach some kind of an
understanding about the selling of liquor
to the wards of the Government.
The saloonmen came to terms when
they found that the City Council Intend

sisted in selling to Indians. Now It re

Roosevelt Is Censured for Re
peated Withdrawals of Pub
lic Lands in Whatcom.
"BAD FAITH" IS CHARGED
Resolution Passes Senate With Two
Negative Votes, Democrats Mead
Wires Protest to President and
Declares Withdrawal Unjust.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Feb. 8. (Special.)
The Entire Legislature went to Aber
deen this afternoon, and for that pur
pose adjournment was had at noon.
The ostensible reason for the trip Is the
request for a division of Chehalis
County, Hoquiam and Aberdeen hav
ing petitioned for a new county under
the name of Gray's Harbor County. So
far as the Legislators are concerned,
the chief attraction, particularly to the
East Side members, is the promised
clambake at Moclips tomorrow.
But before adjournment, the Senate
found time to censure the Federal ad
ministration for Its forest reserve pol
icy. This was done In a resolution in
troduced by Kline, of Whatcom. The
occasion for the resolution was the
withdrawal from entry Wednesday of
lands advertised for settlement in
Whatcom County. Prospective settlers
were not told of the withdrawal until
they crowded around the Seattle Land
The Whatcom County residents are
highly Incensed. They had worked for
the opening of the lands for the last
12' years, and the lands have been
advertised and withdrawn time and
time again. The resolution now
declares that the Government has
acted In "bad faith," says the
land Is rich agricultural land and not
suitable for timber interests; depreci
ates the latest withdrawal and protests
against a "further extension of any
and all forest reserves in this state."
The greater majority of the Senators
favored the resolution, but Graves, of
Spokane insisted that the language was
too emphatic and feared Its effect on
a belligerent President. He found
none to agree with him save Cotteril
of King. Both the men are Democrats.
Mead Wires Roosevelt.
Boone of Whitman took opportunity
to comment with surprise on the fact
that a minority would seek to protect
the President, and said that a resolu
tion was good Democratic doctrine In
that it "viewed conditions with alarm."
Poison of Chehalis pronounced the
forest reserve system "a curse." Other
Senators thought no language strong
enough to express the state's condem
nation of the forest reserve policy. The
resolution passed with only the votes
of Graves and Rosenhaupt, both of Spo
kane, against it.
Governor Mead Is with the Senate in
the matter. He sent a telegram to
President Roosevelt today, saying:
I most earnestly protest against further
extension of forest reserve aa contemplated
by department order of January 6. With
drawal of these lands from entry after
inviting settlers to file la real injustice."
While the Senate and the Governor
were censuring the President's policy
the House was engaged in protecting
the Federal administration.
Exclude Japanese From Schools.
"I am for America, for Americans."
shouted Hutchison of Spokane when the
educational committee reported for in
definite postponement his bill to com
pel payment of tuition for foreign
born children attending public schools
In this state. "This bill is aimed at
the Japanese," he cried. "I want those
in favor of the Japanese to go on rec
ord." He demanded a roll call on his
substitute motion to re-refer the bill
to the committee.
Ramsey of King, the chairman, pro
tested, saying the committee had care
fully considered the bill, deemed It ill
timed and believed its passage would em
barrass the Federal administration.
Hutchison became so confused that he
voted against his own motion, which was
The House then indefinitely postponed
Beebe's bill providing life imprisonment
for insane murderers, and Gache's bill
making a misdemeanor the wanton kill
ing of dogs. Blackmore of Clark fathered
the Oregon wife-beating bill. The Sheriffs
of the state desire the passage of this
bill. The maximum punishment is lim
ited to 40 lashes.
In the Senate Cotteril of King stood
sponsor for the navigation act recom
mended by the Marine Commission ap
pointed several months ago to inquire into
the Dix disaster. The bill is modeled on
the New York law. It gives the state
control of all launches and vessels under
15 tons, where the Federal law stops. In.
spections are to be made by the State
Labor Commission. Heavy fines for vio
lations of the act are provided. The
measure Is applicable to lakes and other
Higher Salaries for State Officers.
Boone of Whitman introduced in the
Senate a bill fixing a new salary schedule
for state officers. Boone was opposed to
the Judicial salary increase bill, and since
he was defeated In that, will compel the
Senate to swallow its own medicine. The
new scale sets the Governor's salary at
$6000 per annum, that of Lieutenant-Governor
at $1300 and all other state officers
Reed of Whitman asked the Senate to
consider a bill for the appropriation of
$150,000 for a home for the aged, blind
and infirm. He does not ask that the
home be located at Yakima, but would
leave that matter to a commission.
The Senate . passed a bill levying an
excise of 5 per cent tax on express com
panies, though Graves questioned the
constitutionality of the act. The Senate
also passed Kayser's c!tv and town de
pository bill, enabling municipalities to
receive dnterest on public funds.
HOPES OF OLD GUARD DASHED
Efforts for Searching Investigation
of Ross May Be Thwarted.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Feb. 8. (Special.)
When the regulars in the Senate pro
posed a resolution for an investigation
of the office of Land Commissioner Ross,
they did it with the Intent to harrass
the insurgents. The "old guard" has all
along Insisted that the Insurgent com
bine was framed at the Instance of John
L. Wilson to protect Ross from an in
vestigation, a rumble of which had been
heard throughout the state long before
the session opened. Ross early asked for
an Investigation, which was supposed to
be undertaken by Poison, chairman of
the state granted school land and tide
lands committee. But the investigation
was never held. Poison contenting him
self with a statement of his faith In
Ross' Innocence. Hence the resolution
gave a covert slap at Poison and all In
surgents. The scope of that resolution is so broad
and the path opened so wide that a de
cent investigation would consume months.
That was the regulars' Intention. The
insurgents were dazed for a time. The
House provided a way of escape by an
amendment calling for a report by March
1. The insurgents held a hasty caucus
this morning and decided to concur in
the amendment. They served notice to
this effect on the regulars, who are un
able to prevent it. The regulars -may now
demand a withdrawal of the resolution,
claiming that an Investigation cannot be
completed in the time allowed by the in
surgents. The insurgent leaders Insist that the
time allowed is ample, and deny that the
combine is seeking to protect Ross, and
declare that the reform Senators will be
first to demand his impeachment if his
guilt can be established. The new move
plunges the old guard again into the
gloom into which the light of hope had
pierced its difficult way yesterday.

BRITON IS UNLAWFULLY HELD
Andrew Hughes Demands King
County Compensate Him for Delay.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Feb. 8. The Brit
ish Embassy at Washington has de
manded of the State Department at
Washington that King County com
pensate Andrew Hughes, a British sub
ject, for being held five days in the
County Jail as a witness in a criminal
case, after the case had been termin

Hughes by mistake was taken back to

that Hughes was still in Jail. ' At the
