from present indications ,wi'.l be the
extreme height of the flood. During the
past week cool weather has prevailed in
the territory east of the Rocky Moun

Warm weather during the past few

for the next three days the water in
the Willamette River will not rise to
a greater point than 18 feet
Between The Dalles and the Cascades
the water has risen at a rapid rate, and
the locks at the Cascade will be closed
to navigation by Sunday if prevailing j
conditions continue. The locks cloe at
a 37-foot stage, and flood conditions pre
vail at The Dalles when the water
reaches 40 feet. A rise of eignt feet at
the Cascades will close the lock to
steamboats. If warm weather continues
at points east of the Cascade Moun

condition will prevail throughout the
entire Columbia River basin.
Merchant on Front street have tak
en advantage of the warning issued by
the weather department and have moT
ed a large portion of their stock from
the lower docks. Many business men
hare engaged crew to move merchan
dise from their basements to place of

With a trifle more than 3,800,000
feet of lumber, valued at $50,000, the
British steamship Tottenham, Captain
Mann, left down this alfternoon bound

District orecaster Beals say the
river at Portland will begin to fall
slightly Monday and Tuesday, after bav
ing reached a stage of 18 feet. It is
expected to attain that depth above low
water mark Sunday and remain on a
stand for about 24 hours.
While this is the situation at present
Mr. Beals explains that before the sea
son i over there may be much higher
water. The weather, which has been
rather cool in the mountains during the
past few days, is likely to change any
day and melt the remaining snow. The
Upper Columbia is still rising at every
point, but the Snake is falling.
As soon as she can be given a general
overhauling, the steamer Breakwater
will be operated by the Southern Pacific
Railroad Company between Portland

The next series shows the difficulties
and amusing incidents which 'beset a
couple who desirous of changing their
lodgings set out in search of a new
habitation. The scenes are most laugh
able and the many mishaps which be
