The council declined, to approve the
March estimate of the city engineer un
til J125, the. salary jof w. T. Andrews,
as superintendent of street repairs, was
clipped oft. Andrews, was. placed In the
position by Rodney Lv Gltsan and Whit
ney L. Boise, the street committee of
the' executive board, but his official head
was severed by the refusal of the coun
cil to grant , his salary. The position
was really created by the civil service
commission and applicants were to have
taken an examination Saturday, but none
applied. Andrews never took an exam
ination. "
A petition from numerous prominent
people of Hlllsboro, praying the coun
' ell to extend tha franchise of the West
Side & Suburban railway 60 days,' was
granted. . ,
, Before passing over the matter Coun
cilman Rumelin expressed the belief that
. If the company was really going to
build a line It should -be encouraged,-
but if it was not "It ought to be en.
couraged by having its franchise re
voked." Mr. Rumelin said he had
brought the matter up at this time for
the benefit of -the property owners on
Northrup street who desired to make im
provements. ' but wanted first to know if
what was done' would have to be torn
up soon that a railway might be laid.
.The city engineer was instructed to
prepare estimates for the paving of
Fifth street' from Irving to Jefferson
with blthoUthlc. Before the ordinance
was passed it was decided to notify all
owners of property along the street to
make sewer, water and, gas connections
before the pavement Is put down. .This
is a new departure designed to keep the
Improvement in good order. The Port
land Railway company will lay stone on
a concrete foundation between Its tracks.
The ways and means committee rec
ommended that the petition of City Phy
stclan Zan for an increase in salary be
placed on file, and this was done.
The same committee recommended
that $260 be appropriated to the Oregon
Miners' association for the benefit of
the American mining congress to be held
in August ' This also was passed.
'The council passed the $1,000 appro
prlation for the renovation of the city
Jail. '"When the matter came up Coun
cilman Zimmerman spoke, saying when
the executive board recently recom
mended' $10,000 for the repairing of the
Jail he opposed it on the grounds that
It was extravagant to devote that sum
to such a property. But now. he said.
he was willing that $1,000 be given to
make it temporarily fit for habitation
as the city was aoon to sell It and
build a new one.
D. C. O'Reilly, for the Ontgon Round

boat site at the foot of East Washing

The old Columbia telephone franchise
was canceled, merely to clear up the
books. ,
The , Pacific Construction company,
building the new Morrison street bridge,
was granted permission to build a tram
way on East Water street from' their
leased dock at the foot of Oak street
to the bridge, for the purpose of con
veying the material from the cars. Upon

F, P.Baumgartner,: local agent. of the

If the weather remains fair he says an

It Is said, that he would compel .them to

lowing account of the wreck Is given in
the Port Orford Tribune: .
"'! . ; Then occurred' one of the wild
est scenes ever witnessed at Port Or-
ford. ,i Regardless of the raging storm
about all the men, women and children
of the town lined the shore, and the men
were all ready and anxious to render all
assistance possible. The mountains of
seas ' were breaking entirely over the
vessel, and soon the intervening water
was a floating mass of lumber. One boat
was broken: another boat was launched.
with five men on board, and was cap-
slsed. . The. boat was righted but soon
capsized again. - The secorid mate was
killed by drifting lumber,, and disap
peared from view. Three of the men
reached shore on the lumber. The other
man hung to the side of the ship for a
time but was struck, with lumber and
badly hurt, but succeeded In drifting
ashore on the timber, The cook made a
brave effort to reach shore 'with 'a line,
but failed, and was hauled back on board
completely exhausted. A . line was at
last made to drift ashore by means of a
lifepreserver and then the shore people
were able to send a double line on board.
A small life raft was then launched and
the men were hauled ashore through the
raging sea, two and three at a time."
Now is the time for farmers to get
busy gathering car car a bark. The sap
is now running and this makes the bark
easier to peal off.
Just now there is a large scarcity of
cascara bark in the markets of the
world and it la now worth about 12
cents a pound. In former years the
price was so low about 1 cent a pound
that very few people engaged in the
business of gathering It, and the result
was a shortage In the market Then
some one . entirely cornered the supply
and the prices last year went entirely
out of sight.
One large exporting firm of this city
shipped a number of tons of it to the
London and Liverpool markets last sea.
son and this caused a further shortage
in the market.
Cascara bark Is used. In large quantl
ties in the manufacture of medicine. As
blood purifier it Is said Its qualities
cannot be aurpaaaed. It Is found only
on tha Pacific coast and. la very plenti
ful in the state of Oregon.
At the present prices show no evi
dence of weaker tone and of late there
has been several advances in the mar
Great care should be taken In drying
tha bark, so that it should not be al
lowed too much sunlight. The best way
to dry it is in a hop dryer or in some
dry place where it will not be reached
by the rays of the sun. If the sun
should perchance strike the bark It will
change its color to one of dark brown,
and dealers prefer not to buy this class
of bark.
Cascara bark Is a staple article and a
market can always be found for It It
should bo properly dryed and sacked
In order to obtain the best figures.

and is a true fissure vein between
porphyry and slate, and pans free gold

run a tunnel and develop the property
as soon as the snow is oft.
The Bone of Contention mine, In Jack

for a short time, resumed work last
Monday with a force of 1$ men, and
work Is being pushed very rapidly. This
property was sold a few days ago to
Johnson, Catterllna & Co. of Portland,
The mine is opened through four levels
and all show a good vein of ore about
three feet wide on an average; the long.
est tunnel in the mine at present is only
in about 600 feet and shows a vein of
ore about four feet wide the entire
length and assays $12 per ton of free
milling gold. The mine Is well equipped
with an eight-stamp nlll and all nec
essary machinery for development and
operation. The new management has in
view the completion of a crosscut tunnel
to tap the main ore body at a depth of
$60 feet lower than at present and the
prospect for a good camp Is flattering.
The past winter has been one of the
most active in all the camps around
Baker City, says the Democrat. With
the exception of three large mines closed
down on account of legal complications
the others have worked larger forces of
men than during any previous winter in
the history of the camp. New mines
were added to the list last fall which
were never before producers and did not
work but few men during the winter
aeason. The Emma mine ' has been
worked all winter. On Snake river heavy
work has been done in the copper dis
trict, which will be resumed as quick as
the weather opens again In the spring.
The heavy mining being done at the
Iron Dyke and in the Eagle valley camps
Is largely in contemplation of tho build
lng a railroad from Baker City to Bal
lard's Landing. An immense amount of
work has been done on the United Elk-
horn mines.
Albert Gelser tells the Baker City
Democrat: "The outlook for mining In
eastern Oregon I have never seen
brighter than it is today. A new class
of mining men ts coming in hero and
they are not only bringing money, but

The development done on the Dixie
Meadows and Immediately adjoining
properties is proving a superb lode,
which informed mining men already
compare with the great Cracker Creek
lode, owing to. the strength and quite
similar occurrence. The Dixie Meadows
property as a whole presents one of tho
most interesting developments of the
