It is reported that the heavy storm of
last Saturday did not extend more
than ten or twelve miles south of the
Columbia river, although light rain fell
farther south than that distance. .
We are reliably informed that the
recent heavy rains swelled the can
yon leading to the Des Chutes "free"
bridge into a raging torrent, destroying
ompletely the grade on the Sherman
unty side of the river, involving in its
repair many hundreds of dollars. The
bridge, which was well constructed, at
an enormous expense to Wasco county,
which then included Sherman, is intact.
It is not thought Sherman county will
make the repair.
The bridge has been a great conven
ience to people coming to The Dalles for
a distance of 100 miles, and especially
throughout the John Day country.
Now that it cannot be used, travelers
will lose a great many miles, as they
will be compelled to go by Sherar's
bridge or Miller's.

cannot be invoked.

Interested persons are now anxiously
waiting to learn what project was
recommended by the board of engineers,
who met in New York some months
ago, for the surmounting of the ob
structions to navigation at the dalles of
the Columbia. Their report was sent in
to the chief of engineers some time ago,
and it should in the natural order of
things be made7public soon. The pro
ject recommended is not known, but it
is understood that whether it was a
boat railway or a canal, the site selected
was on the Oregon side of the river.

Astoria Cannera Worried.
Some of the Astoria cannera are be-
inning to feel perplexed over the work
ings of the Geary bill. The Chinese
help employed by them is not only
cheaper than any other labor that could
be hired, but is also excellent, method
ical and cleanly. Word went out among
the Celestials that an inspector would
soon arrive in Astoria to enforce the reg
istration act, and though there was no
immediate danger of his coming, the
men gave several of their employers to
understand they did not intend to be
photographed, registered or anything
else. If they stick to their determina
tion the canneries will be wofully short
of men, and, though it seems like bor
rowing trouble, cannera are already
looking for some way out of the difficulty.
Railroad Fare to World's Fair.
An arrangement has .been arrived at
among the representatives of the various
transcontinental lines in regard to re
duced rates to the Columbian exposi
tion. On and after May 1st, round-trip
tickets to Chicago and back will be sold
for $98.50, a reduction of $11.50 from
present rates. Round-trip tickets to
Omaha, Kansas City and St. Paul will
be $80, and to St. Louis $92. The tickets
will be good for nine months, and will
carry the usual' lay-over privileges west
of the Missouri river. It is the opinion
of some of the ticket agents that a fur
ther reduction will be made, and that
there is a liability of a regular smash
before the fair is over.
The old block house at the Cascades
on the Washington side has recent!
fallen down during a heavy wind, and of
course will never be rebuilt. This house
was built in 1856, and though it has
never received a hostile bullet, being
built two years after the memorable
ngnt upon tne oia block house, now
completely gone to ruin, it has been
old landmark and quartered a
many troops and civilians while the
dians were vet hostile.

Owing to the rapid settlement of the
country the government is bestirring
themselves in the matter of surveying
vacant government land. J. Richard
son, with a party of men, horses, in
struments and camp equipage, left on
the Regulator this morning for Nelson's
landing, a few miles above Cascade
Locks on the Washington side, to sur
vey the vacant townships in that coun
try. There is much valuable fruit land
in that vicinity which has never been
located, but which will some day be
worth $1,000 an acre for .every acre of
thrifty bearing fruit trees. The great
rush of settlers in the last year or two
is the reason for the survey. The coun
try is filling up fast, how fast none will
realize until the next census is made
and a comparison drawn.
Major Handbury evidently thinks the
work at the Cascades is net getting
along much better than when be was in
charge. He details the condition of the
work as it was left by the government
while under his supervision , and then
proceeds to discuss what the contractors
have done and are doing. He says :
"The contractors have done little
work. They have had about 25 men at
work since the middle of the month,
erecting a saw mill and clearing away
brush upon their land, three miles from
the lock, where they are making prepa
rations to get basalt stone. They have
surveyed three different times for a
trail to their quarry, and I believe have
decided upon a method for getting
stone from this quarry to the locks.
They have received some second-hand
air compressing plant for running drills,
and are at work putting that in order.
They have a few men at work clearing
out the government stonesheds, prepar
atory to cutting stone. I have not
learned what progress they are making
in cutting the granite dimension stones
in their quarries in California. March
16th they were notified by telegraph of
the appropriation by congress of $1,239,-
658 for work under their contract. The
work on detailed shop-drawings of lock
gates and on the general drawings of
the hydraulic machinery will probably
be continued during April. It is pre
sumed that the contractors
large force at work getting
stone and cutting the same."

Yeoman, only daughter of Wm. E. and
Sadie Campbell of 8-Mile creek, Wasco
county, Or., aged 9 years and 6 months.
Thus she died as a little angel, and her
little form was laid to rest beside those
of the grandfather, aunt and uncle, who
only a few short years passed on before
and were waiting and watching to guide
her safely across to the other shore.
Put away the little dresses
That the darling used to wear,
8he will need them on earth, never,
She has climbed the golden stair.
She is with the happy angels
And I long for her sweet kiss,
Where her little feet are waiting
In the realm of perfect bliss.
Angels whisper that our darling
Is in lands of love so fair,
That her little feet.are waiting
Close beside the golden stair.
Lay aside the little playthings
Wet with mother's pearly tears,
N'ow we shall miss little Clara
All the coming weary years.
Fold the dainty little dresses
That she never more will wear,
For her little ieet are waiting
Up above the golden stair.
Kiss the little curly tresses
Cut from her bright golden hair.
Do the angels kiss our darling
In the realm so bright and fair?
Oh! we pray to meet our darling
For a long, long sweet embrace.

And we meet her face to face.
