homa could reach the Big Eddy without
much trouble, and on seeing the lc pack
the. captain assumed from Its appear

more steam and took a flying start,
which landed the Tahoma on the Ice. By

slid Into the water.
We cannot get frelcht to the Eddy
under present conditions and the out
look Is not favorable. It was snowing
hard at Hood River and vicinity Wednes
day, and there waa new Ice at The

In the face of cold weather and stormy

work Is being hurried on the Cellio Canal
and that at no time during the season
has lie noticed more act'vlty of construc
tion. Added to that stir there la the
life exhibited as far as the Peechutes.

Railroad Is being built. Porter Bros..

completed and that the first lot of steel
will arrrve on the ground next week.
Uranlte abounds along the Columbia In

The steamer J. N. Teal will be floated
from the ways at the 9t. Johr.a Ship

will be berthed at the Oak-street dock

to Lewlston will present no obstacles for
steamers during the Summer.

Drowning In Port Few Since Adop
tion of Ordinance.
Determined that no drowning of sea
men In the harbor can be attributed to
faulty nets or tarpaullna beneath gang
ways, or to neattgenre In acquainting
all masters of shirs with the regulations.
Harbormaster Speler railed the attention
of Ms force again to the Imperative need
of Insisting on net being stretched, and
on hla personal Inspection of the water
front yesterday gave particular attep
tlon to the manner In which those safe
guards were provided.
The drowning of Chief Mate Pledrlch
Te Harde. of the German ship Elfrelda.
whose body was yesterday recovered at
Unnton by Hugh Brady and conveyed
to Dunning A Mclntee's establishment,
la charged to the fact that there waa
no net or tarpaulin used under the El
frted.Vs gangway. De Harde. It la sal-L
carried a lantern, but on approaching
the edse of the wharf the rays of the
light shone In hla eyes so that It was
apparently impossible for him to see the
plank. Phi pa lying at Unnton have now
provided nets, though they are beyond
the limit of the harbor. The net ordi
nance waa made effective aeveral years
ago. following a winter when a half
ilosetx men. Including one roaster, lost
their. Uvea through falling from gang
wave on bailast logs. Not since that
time has a drowning occurred through
the victim falling from the gangway. At
ttmea early In the morning crews of
ships have hauled comrades from the
rets who had fallen from the plank
while Intoxicated and then reposed In
slumber when they found their fall
broken by the contrivance. The harbor
police Insist on the gangwaya being
lighted at night and by those methods
the river's toll has been reduced ma
terially In accidental drownings.
Vpper River Freight May Be Hand
led by Rail.
Facing an Interruption of traffic for
two months. .while the Oregon City
locka are being deepened by blasting
away the bottom of the basin, officers
of the yellow Stack line are considering
means of providing for the care f
freight between Portland and points on
the Willamette south to Corvailla.
During the low water season last Sum
mer the lowest depth at. the north end
of the locka was IS Inches over the sills.
As the bottom of the locks Is solid rock
additional depth gained will have to be
provided through blasting, though by in
creasing the height of the gates the
amount of water available may be In
creased. There are six sections In the
lock snd work will possibly have to be
carried for half the distance. The sys
tem is arranged so that any section may
be drained and men may labor without
water Interference.
"While steamers will be prevented from
naming through the locks, arrangement)

teamens can remain above the locks. It
Is said that If the Corpa of Army Engi
neer In constructing the proposes uov
ernment locks on the east bank of the
river there, establishes the height about
two feet above that of the present plant,
navigation will not cease until extreme
high water. The locks In use were
closed before the crewt of the last freshet
Waa reached and they were not re
opened until the river had been falling
two days.

Grain Tonnage Loading Fast.
Two vessels, the British ship Bal

to finish grain cargoea this week. The
Mlml shifted yesterday to Martin's dock,
took on 600 tons of wheat in halt a day
and In the afternoon was moved to
Oceanic dock and will complete Its
load today. The Mlml will have the

bark Bayard should be ready to' leave

the grain coterie, only the Elfrieda,
Bossuet and Celtic Glen will remain.
High Bridge Is Time-Saver.
Since the completion of the Hawthorne
avenue bridge steamers of the Oregon
City Transportation Company have been
unable to pass beneath the structure
only on one occasion. That was when
the freshet of a week ago reached Its

that reach the upper harbor without sig

of them could avert such dejay. It Is said.

Game Tomorrow Night.
Corvaills, Jan. 26. (Special.) The bas
ketball five d O. A. C. faces what prob
ably will be one of the hardest games of
the season on Saturday evening of this
week, when they will line up against the
National Guard Company F team of
Portage. Wis.
Coached by E. D. Angell. forrflerly
physical director and athletic manager
at O. A. C, the Portage basket wizards
constitute one of the most brilliant
basketball quintets In the country. Thoy
have captured 45 out of the 48 games In
which they have engaged in their trans
continental trip, and having defeated
every Conference team except Whitman,
with whom they were unable to obtain
a game, they are seeking final triumph
oyer O. A. C. at Corvaills.
Against these players, whose team
work is said to approach perfection and
whose basket throwing is pronounced
phenomenal, the O. A. C. players, while
with no great hope of victory, are mak
ing every effort to give them the hard
est game of their western experiences.
Three of the Portage players are grad
uates of the University of Wisconsin,
and their team will be supported by a
large number of Wisconsin graduates
now members of the O. A. C. faculty.
Light Mount Angel Team No Match
for Football Tactics Used.
Or., Jan. 26. (Special.) Willamette
University took a rough game of basket
ball away from the collegians here last
night by a score of 17 to 21. It was a
hard-fought game, but a game in which
the lithe and clean-cut young collegians
clearly could not compete with the foot
ball tactics of their husky opponents.
Fouls figured mostly on the score board,
18 being called on the visitors for rough
work. The neat dribbling of Van Loo
and the clever guarding of Melchlor,
both of Mt. Angel, were easily the fea
tures of the game. The line-up:

Professional Nine to Challenge En
tiro Northwest First Match
Next Sunday.
Buddy Ryan ha finally gathered to
gether his crowd of Beavers who are to
play indoor baseball for the present
Winter, and last night he met with the
manager of the A. G. Spalding team,
which recently won. the Indoor cham
pionship of the city, and the two clubs
will cross bats at the Armory Sunday
afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
Ryan has decided to call his team the
Beavers, and If they are successful
against the Spaldings Sunday they will
challenge any Indoor team In the North
west. The Beavers will have all the
Portland champions, now wintering hero.
In the lineup, and Jimmy Adams, of the
Vancouver Northwertern League Club,
and Al Lerch, of the Trl-Clty League,
will help out. Vean Gregg Is practicing
the underhand Indoor delivery each day,
and Bill Rapps and Gus Fisher, who have
been stopping his shoots, say he throws
like a cannon ball.
The Spalding team has made an en
viable record at the Indoor game this)
Winter, for that club has won 11 out of
the 13 games played.' and won the cham
pionship of the Indoor league by a wide
margin. Henderson, the cleverest of the
local Indoor baseball pitchers, will be In
the box for the Spaldings against the
Beavers, and he is confident of being
able to fool Buddy Ryan'o sluggers who
won the Pacific Coast championship at
the outdoor game.
The teams will line up as follows:

He will direct his energy especially

San Francisco during the coming Sum
