WORK TO SOCK COMMENCE
Government Expected to Order Ad
vertisement for Bids on the Ccl
ilo Canal Shortly.
Within two weeks, It Is expected,
Mujnr LuugfUt will be Instructed to
ndyertise for bidH for the construction
of the first lock of The Dallcs Oelilo
CanaJ, Pays the Orcgonlan Washing.
Ion, D. C, correspondent, thus lauch
ing project that has been under coif
ulderatlon in one shape or another for
a generation. Tho Chief of Engineers
Jiaa received Major LungfUl's plan for
beginning construction, hut owing to
the faot Hint several details ure not
quite clear, the papers arc to be re
turned for explunatlou. When they
get hack to Wellington it is thought
the plans will he approved and author
ity grnnted 'to invite proposuls.
Major Lnngfltt's plans, which have
been can-fully worked out in gruut de
tail aud wilh appnrent care, contem
plate beginning construction on the
upper end of ihe caiml and working
down Htreum, This is done to enable
contractors to make in-e of the canal
us It is completed, section by section.
Major Langfltt bus prepared plans
for approaches to tliecanul at its upper
end, for the guard gates for the first
lock near Celilo, aud for a considera
ble stretch of canal. It in impossible
to tell how much can be done with the
money appropriated in tho rivers and
hurbor law, but it is anticipated there
aro funds enough lo complete tho
Colllo lock and canal entranco and to
do considerable blasting nnd straight
O'uial work. Near the first lock it will
ho ucctssary to build an Immense em
bankment as tho north wall of tho ca
nal. This purl of the canal, und in
fact all other purlH not cut through
solid rook, will bo lined with cement.
All embankments will be solid of con
struotlon and will bo faced with Im
mense rocks tor prevent washing In
seasons of high water.
HAVE GOOD PROSPECTS.
Sheep shearing commenced in Gil-
Ham county lust week, und will bo

und he had a long, white beard. The
face was long and lioro shaped, tho 1
eyes wero still bright and fierce nnd j

like the roar of an enraged lion. Tho
O'Gorman Million was the very pink;

could easily see what n man he had

When he found that Mr. Purnell would

Ilartourt for emtio Insulting languagp

man Malion had coino In perfect faith
that a duel was a certainty, and his
long, horse shaped face became visibly
longer as Pnrnell calmly said that he
did not regard dueling ns rational or
necessary. The old gentleman was too
polite to express Ida real feelings, but
tho pained silence which followed tne
announcement of Puniell sufficiently
revealed what he felt
