- Contracts will soon be let for the con
struction of 2,000 feet of the Tanner
creek sewer, including the portion which
' was damaged and which caused the re-
trict At its next meeting the council
will likely authorise the call for bids.
, The sewer has been repaired by the
city engineer so that any further block
ade la considered impossible, and no
1 fears are entertained of a repetition of
the recent flood. The repairs were only
ii a temporary nature, nowever, ana lor
that reason bids will be asked ror the
construction of a permanent sewer.
The sewer was built years ago and
has always been considered defective.
The break is said to have been due to
Tm perfections. .The new sewer will be
built In . a more substantial way and
wl I 1 have a attnA.Klrw.1r Kntl fnr 'In
upmub x n area win uo several luenn
In thickness heavy enough to support
. the mass of earth aboye with no chance
of another cave-in.
"We have the sewer repaired now so
that there will not be another blockade
and flood, said City Engineer Elliott
today, "but It is still defective. It was
- not bullt.properly in the first place, and
the only thing to do Is to construct a
' new one In that section where the break
.occurred. j It. Is very weak for quite a
' distance, ' and another cave-In at some
other point is possible. :
"We will ask for bids for the con
struction of 2.000 4eet of new sewer,
which will Include the part that . was
recently broken and the parts that ap
pear to he the weakest and most likely
' to yield to the enormous pressure above.
- "There is- now no danger of another
' flood, however, and the work of build
ing a new sewer will not begin before
late in the summer." :

Fair weather may be expected tonight

A light frost is predicted for this

result. Gentle northerly winds, are pre
dicted for tonight and tomorrow. .
The only , clouds visible today are

cates a change of some sort, but the

fair weather for the next 88 hours.
Killing frosts are reported from the

While Sheriff. Storey was running
around the city trying to mend his po
litical fences prior to ths Republican
county convention, -and while he was en-
gage m ai8cnarging those . deputies
whom lie looked on as "traitors" to his
cause, the county has been paying need
less I interest on outstanding warrants
aggregating almost a million dollars.
The sheriff's punitive methods in dis
charging his deputies have also proved
a. feoomerang, as by .working on a re
duced staff in the tax office he has got
far behind in his work. Yet be ' claims
as - a defense that his men are over
worked 'and that money cannot be
checked out of tha bank- to County
Treasurer Lewis as fast as desirable.
. Stovey turned over more than $.683,
000 to the bank this morning and re
ceived a receipt therefor. ' The checks
representing this amount have been on
file in his vault for periods extending
baok to March 8, the last date previous
to this morning on which, money was
checked out of the bank to the county
treasurer. In the meantime the county
has been paying interest on almost a
million dollars.
In, addition to the money placed 4n
bank this morning the sheriff checked
out of that institution a little more than
1200,000 to the county treasurer, a small
amount in comparison with the necessi
ties of the situation.
"We have done ths best we could."
said the sheriff. "Every one of the stubs
on which are tabbed the amounts com.
ing In have to be gone over, as an erroi
would mean that I should have to repay
the amount out of my own pocket. ) I
have made it a rule that all amounts
checked out of the bank should be in fa
vor of Lewis, as I refuse to be responsi
ble. I have had to keep the men work
ing nights to keep up as well as they
have.
CANAL IS PUT FIRST
(Continued from Page One.)
tioa proceedings may be instituted to
secure his land.
Terms have been virtually agreed up
on between the Oregon Railroad & Navi
gation company and the state commis
sioners. The railroad stipulates that the
pending suit to condemn right of way
for the portage road shall be dismissed,
and the state commissioners will accede
to this condition, inasmuch as the route
contemplated ' by that suit conflicts at
several points with the route selected
for the canaL -
Oanal Pa Tint.
The commissioners consider that the
canal Is the more Important of ths two
projects, being more permanent in character,-
and as, the act authorising it, was
later than that directing the' construc
tion of the portage road, they feel jus
tified in giving precedence to the canal
When the surveys for the canal were
made it was found that at several points
it would conflict with the route pre
viously surveyed for the portage . rail
way. The .effort to carry out the latter
project was therefore suspended, until
the task of obtaining the land required
for the canal shall have been completed.
Comparatively little now remains to be
done before the commissioners will be
able to convey title to the government
Some details are yet to be arranged with
the O. R. A N and if an amicable ad
justment with Taffe proves Impossible,
title must be acquired from him by con
demnation proceedings, but though there
may be some delays, there is little doubt
that a successful consummation win nn
allv be reached bv the commissioners.
As soon as ths right of way for the
canal has been secured the state com
mlssloners will cause a new survey to
be made for the portage railway. The
route will necessarily be quite different
from that originally determined upon.
for the canal will occupy a considerable
portion of the land upon which it was
first proposed to build the railway. One
consequence will be that the cost of
constructing the railway will be mate
rially Increased, for any route other than
that first chosen will- involve some
heavy cuts and the construction of ex
pensive trestles. Engineers say that it
is very aouhtrui wnetner me portage
railway could have been built for lu,-
000 on the route first planned, and that
the cost will certainly exceed that fig
ure if any other route is adopted.
The legislature appropriated 8100.000
for the purchase of the right of way
for the Celllo canal, and the commission
ers expect to keep well within the ap
propriation. Joint Surrey la Progress.
In order to establish definitely the
precise line of the canal, . Joint sur
vey is being made by engineers repre
senting the government and the O. R.
& N. Co. Lieutenant Fries of the corps
of United States engineers has Just re
turned from a trip to Celllo, where a
surveying party is laying out the route
for the canal This preliminary work
will be completed within a few days.
but unless congress makes an additional
aDoroprlatlon for river and harbor im
provements. Lieutenant Fries says that
it is probable that notning further will
be done than to run the lines and draw
up plans for the waterway.
There is money avauaoie tor the
clearing out of the obstructions from
Three-Mile rapids, ana as that is a
part of the canal project, the engineers
say that active work . on the big en
terprise of making a continuous water
way from tne sea to Liewiston, iaa-
wlll be in progress all summer. ,
'SDeaking about climate," said tha
lieutenant, "there is certainly a big dlf -ference
in the weather at Portland and
Celllo. At Celllo a blinding enow storm
was raging all day Thursday, and it
kept one hustling to keep warm. Just
a little distance aoove wnere tne sur
veyors were at work the mountains were
covered with snow and presented a very
distinctly wintry appearance. In soma
places, however, wild flowers were
blooming, and the immediate surround
ings gave every evidence that spring Is
near at hand." '

After suffering many hours from se
vere burn received last Thursday morn
ing, Mrs. R. Weaver died last evening'
at her hotne,M7 Mississippi avenue.
Last Thursday morning Mrs. Weaver
got up somewhat early, as it has been
her custom for some time, and in some
way spilled a pint 'or more of coal oil
on her dress. It is thought that she
was attempting to make a fire burn more
briskly by the use of ths oil, and while
pouring It on tha blase , accidentally
spilled a part of it on her clothing. -
Hearing the screams of her mother,
Mrs. Weaver's daughter rushed into the
room and found that nearly all of the
Clothing o the old lady was en fir. Mr.
Glass, a son-in-law, also rushed, to the
room where Mrs. Weaver had attempted
to start the nre. Quickly throwing
blankets and heavy ; wearing apparel
about the body of Mrs. Weaver, the
flames were soon extinguished, but not
before Mrs. Weaver had been most se
verely burned from the waist upwards.
Dr. W. C McKechnle was at once
called, and everything was done to re
lieve the intense pain of the sufferer. It
was at once seen that the burns might
prove fatal, but heroio efforts were made
to save her life. Dr. McKechnle in
formed Mr. Glass yesterday afternoon
that he feared that nothing could be
done to tnave Mrs. Weaver's life.
Mrs. Weaver moved to Portland about
Ave weeks ago from California. , Bhe
was about 60 years or age, and made
her home with her daughter. .
