vessels entering tho harbor must 'bo

Formerly the boats between this

at the latter place, but tho ceremony
has now to bo performed ueioro
their departure from hero in order to
abide by the government (restrictions.
as onforced by Dr. Straw, quarantine
officer of tho port. The Alliance and
Breakwater will bo fumigated im
mediately after the discharge ot
their cargoes at this port, and this
will mean a delay of about a day
instead of the delay being mado at
Portland as heretofore. Tho new ord

Conuilk' Floods its Bunks The Co
qullle river has become angry during
the past few days and since Saturday
morning has made a general nulsanco
of itself, hi many places along tho
river it lias overflowed its banks, and
on tho river side of Coquillo it has
made tho landing of passengers from
tho boats n critical feat. A short dis
tance beyond Coquillo tho river had
risen to such a height that three foot
of water is reported to bo tho depth
over quite a length of tho railroad
tracks, causing tho train to suspend
operations temporarily between Co
quillo and Myrtle Point. Considera
ble astonishmont is felt by tlio poo
plo along the Coqullle over the oarly
ilood, as In most jars it happons In
January and February, and Is caused
from the snow molting In tho moun
tains. Tho present ilood has boqn
caused by tho steady downpour ot
rain for tho past few woeks.

Dow, and Captain Burtis of tho
Plant, stated yesterday that First
Officer Georgo Fltzmorris, of tho
Plant, was going to lay off duty for
a month and got married. Tho grius
with which this Information was
given gave rlso to doubt on tho part
of tho rubberneck representing tho
Times. A little lator, Mr. Dow told
Local Agont Shaw, for tho Alliance,
about the proposed marriage. Ho
winked at Shaw when ho said it,
and botli then broko into a "haw
haw," of considerable dimensions.
It was something like an amateur
minstrel show. Mr. Shaw declared
that It was not possible, but Mr. Dow
insisted that it was probable. Fitz
morrls was attending to freight be
ing put aboard ship. "Naw," Bald
he. "I ain't goln' to lay off. Stick
to tho 0I4 ship," and "Hoy there,"
ho yelled at a truck pusher, ''wliero
tbo devllqro you going, tio, I'll
stick to tjlio old ship."
