NOOKSACK LOG JAM.
I1FCULTIES IX WAY OF BE.
5I0VAL BY UXITED STATES.
Oo&etcss Is IIUely to Talce Action
Captain Harry Taylor's Views
of the Matter.
WASHINGTON, Jan. a The damage
done by the overflowing of the Nooksack
river, tn. Whatcom county, Washington,
has heen called to the attention of the
war department. It has been suggested
that an appropriation of $20,000 be made
lor the removal of a log jam near the
mouth of the river, and it is probable that
some action Trill shortly be taken for the
relief of the settlers in the flooded dis
trict. A survey -was made some time ago with
a. view to having the jam removed, but
nothing -was done. While it is probable
that congress could act under the old sur
vey, it is deemed best to have a new one
made. Commending on the removing from
the mouth of the Nooksack river certain
logs and jams which have had. the effect
of injuring navigation, and, by the back
ing up of the water, seriously affecting
the Interests of riparian, proprietors, Cap
tain Harry Taylor, of the engineer corps
stationed on Puget sound, says:
The collection of these logs and jams
end the consequent backing "up of the
water seems to bavo been brought about
very largely by the construction of a
boom which exists at the mouth of the
river. This boom "was constructed some
ftimedurlng the early part of the year 1SS0.
Complaint was made against this boom
three years ago, as an obstruction to nav
igation, and. a suit was brought in the
United. States circuit court for the dis
trict of Washington to compel the re
moval of this boom. The decree which
"Was handed down February 20, 1S96. sus
tained the defendant and ordered, the suit
tdlsmissed. In the decree the judge holds:
" 'First, That tbe legislature of the state
bad ample power prior to the enactment
toy congress of the river and harbor act
tof September 19, 1SS0, to authorize the con
Btruction of this boom, and. that at the
time of Its construction it was authorized
toy Jaw, and therefore not a nuisance nor
ma unlawful obstruction to navigation;
and in the second place that the chief
value of the Nooksack river as a highway
Is for the floating of saw-logs, and that
'persons and corporations having occasion
to use it lor these purposes have rights
equal to the rights o others to use the
river as a jughway for boats and vessels,
id that a boom at the mouth of the
river necessary for gathering and holding
awlogs is to be regarded as an aid to
the use of the river for a lawful purpose,
and entitled to protection tbe same as a
vrharf or pier constructed at a convenient
jplace for the convenience of vessels.'
"The decree was forwarded by the chief
of engineers, Iby second indorsement, tin
ker date of March C, 1E9G, to Captain W.
3j. Fisk, corps of engineers.
"Upon the recommendation of the dis
trict attorney, this case was appealed,
and I have been informed unofliclally that
the defendant was again sustained, in the
appellate court. I have no official knowl
edge of the result of the appeal.
"A report of a survey of the Nooksack
river was submitted by Captain T. W.
Symons, corps of engineers, under date
of January 14, 1S95. Accompanying this
report was a tracing showing the condi
tions at the mouth of the Nooksack river.
Captain Symons suggested two plans for
Improving the mouth of the river, each
of which was estimated to cost about
525,000. One of these plans was suggested
in case the courts decided that the boom
company had no rights paramount to the
rights of the United S'tates to make
changes, and the other plan was suggest
ed for adoption, if for legal reasons it
was deemed best not to adopt the first
"In view of the decision of the courts
that the boom as maintained at the
mouth of the rivgr is a legal structure,
and entitled to protection as such, it does
not seem to me that either one of these
plans can be adopted without violating
the rights of the boom company, as one
of them cuts through the boom and par
tially destroys it, and the other diverts
the course of the river so as to cause it
to enter Bellingham bay entirely outside
of the boom, and would as effectually de
stroy the usefulness of the boom as the
first plan. Since Captain Symons report
was submitted, I understand that the jam
at the mouth of the river has Increased
Very materially, and that the mouth of
the river is now practically closed, so
that even the logging operations are car
ried on with difficulty. It would now
probably cost double the amount of Cap
Itain Symons estimate to clear the mouth
of the river, due to the greater extent
of the jam, and it is also probable that
en entirely different plan wouid have to
'During- the past two years I have been
appealed, to a number of times to send
the snagboat into the Nooksack river to
remove these log jams, but I have de
clined to order her to the river on ac
count of the great difficulty she would
have in entering the stream, and the
probability of her being wrecked on the
tide flats while trying to find an entrance
Into the river. In the condition In which
the mouth of the river is at the present
time, she could only effect an entrance at
extreme high tide, and it is probable that
ven to do that it would require many
days' work to clear away the snags which
have accumulated. If during tl prose
cution of this work she should ground
tipon a snag, (as she might very likely
tfo), with the falling of the tide she would
almost certainly be wrecked.
"It therefore does not appear to mo
practicable to so improve the mouth of
the Nooksack river under the present
e tatus of affairs as to permit such free
outflow of the flood waters as would re
lieve the lands along its lower course
from the -dangers of overflow."
Kiplins's Place In Literature.
The sympalliy of the world for Kipling;
when the affliction fell upon himself and
his family at New York, led, as was natu
ral, to some o-erestImate of his place la
Jotters. The Oregonlan commented on this
at the time, and expressed the opinion
that his position was not so sure as to
M-nder some reaction impossible. "We
think htea an original force in English
letters, but doubt whether ho will be much
read 20 years hence. It was inevitable that
his success should raise up critics and even
enemies; other authors less in demand
flout him, and the critics, anxious to cel
ebrate new literary stars in the firma
ment, Jibe at him. Allowance is to be
made for these motives, wliich havo noth
ing in them of permanent force; yet it re
anains true, as The Oregonlan pointed out
some time ago, that there seems to be In
Sapling's work little of Ihe quality that
makes for immortal authorship. In the
Contemporary Review, Sobert Buchanan,
who is at chronic ieud with the world,
Mr. KlpHnss muse alternates between two
extremes the lowest cockney vulgarity and
the very freight of what Americans call "hlgh-X&lutJ-
" so that when It Is not setting the
teeth on edge with the vocabulary of the Lon
don Hooligan It is raving in capital letters
about the Seraphim and the Pit sad the Maid
ens Nine and the Planeto. Mr. Kipling, in a
word, although not a poet .at All In the true
cense of the word. Is as near an. approach to a
poet as -can be tolerated by the ephemeral and
hasty Judgment of tbe day. His very tncapac-
i its' of serious thought or deep feeling is In hla
favor. He represents, with more or less ac
1 curacy, wli&t the mob Is thinking, and for this
8 very roaesoa he Is likely to be forgotten as
cwlf tly &&& summodly as ne has been applaud
lad, nay, to be judsod. one condemned as mean
The battle of life is a hard fight for most persons. It lasts from child
hood to old age almost from the cradle to the -grave in many cases.
Parents, will you allow your children to go into this great battle unpre
pared, and trust to luck to succeed ? Surely not; We can help you.
We teach exactly such things as every young man and every young
woman ought to know. In fact, we are outfitters of young people for
the battle of life.

cad insignificant on grounds quite a hasty as
those on which ho has been hailed as Important
and- hlgh-mlnd'ed. Ravage animalism and ig
norant vainglory being In the ascendant, he la
hailed at every street corner and crowned by
every newspaper. Tomorrow, when the wind
changes, and the-silly crowd Is In another and
possibly saner temper, he Is certain to fare very
differently. The misfortune Is that his ef
fusions have no real poetical quality to pre

Telesrraph Early In Polities.
A. K. McClure, in Saturday Evening Post.
The rejection of all the important can
didates and the nomination of Polk, who
had not been thought of for the presidency,
astounded the democrats throughout the
country, and It was at first indignantly re
sented by the friends of Van Buren. In
order to conciliate the "Van Buren people,
Silas "Wright of New York, Van Buren' 3
closet friend and then one of our ablest
senators, was nominated for vice-president,
but unfortunately for "Wright, Pro
fessor ITorso had just completed his ex
perimental telegraph lino between Wash
ington and Baltimore, ana: "Wright was ad
vised of his nomination by telegraph one
of the earliest news messages that passed
over the line and ho instantly responded
with a curt and peremptory declination,
which resulted In the nomination of George
SL Dallas, of Philadelphia.
After mature deliberation the friends
of Van Buren decided to give an earnest
support to Polk, and Senator Wright was
compelled to take the nomination for gov
ernor, to carry his state. He thus be
came governor in 1S44, Instead of vjce
presldent, and in 181G suffered a humiliat
ing defeat In a contest for re-election that
practically ended his public career. Had
there been no telegraph he would have
been the vice-president.

A Substantial Editorial Article.
(Mr. Cooper, the editor of the Scotsman,
tells, in his autobiography, a story of how
a leader writer (who it has been suggested
was-the late James Hannay), being pressed
by the printer's devil for a leading article,
and having allowed the time to go by in
which he could construct one of his own,
took the scissors, cut out a "leader" from
that day's Times, pasted it on a sheet of
paper, and writing on It the headline.
"What Does the Times Mean by This?"
sent the whole article as his contribution
to the leading columns of his own journal!
It was printed as a "leader" exactly aa
he sent It in simply an article from the
Times headed by the query: "What Does
the Times Mean by This?"
