An iron pot floated up the street to
our office door this morning, which con

The First National bank is putting in
a false floor and will remain open until
the water strikes its vaults. Six or eight
inches more will compel it to close up
until new quarters can be procured.
The Umatilla house put in another
false floor last night, which is its limit
for the lower story. Should the rise
continue the range will be moved up
stairs, and business kept on just the
same. Judd Fish says he is in it to
stay as long as the roof is dry.
Second street presents a busy scene
today. Herbring, Pease & Mays, Ror

all are moving out or putting stock

enough, but have lost confidence in the

possession of Third street from Court

: Up to 6 :30 last night the bulkhead at
the locks had not gone out. ' By almost
superhuman efforts the bulk head was
raised about four feet, and it was con'
sidered that yet three feet of a rise could
be stood. The back water is now only
12 feet lower than the water above the
dam and even should it go out, which
now seems improbable, the damage will
not be so great aa was anticipated.
The D. P. & A. N. Co. have exhibited
an amount of pluck and energy that de
serves the highest praise. They have
spent money lavishly to keep their route
open, even going 'to the expense of re
grading a portion of the O. R. & N.
portage and moving the track back. It
is on account of this latter work that the
Regulator did not go down this morning,
as the work will be completed today and
the steamer will clean out her boilers
and make the trip tomorrow. Owing to
the trouble in making the transfer yes

and darkness coming on she tied up at

count of the heavy drift which could
not be avoided in the darkness. She

In getting off last night with fast
freight and baggage a combination of
fnodes of travel was' used going first in
a boat, then wagon, then car, then back
to wagon, wagon back to flat car, and
pulled this with horses to the boat, and
through water almost to the top of the
car. A flat boat will be put in place to
day and transfer can be made direct to

tween that point and The Dalles it is
expected to have the line of railroad in
working order. A boat service between
The Dalles . and Portland will also be
used, the transfer around the cascades
being made on the old portage road on
the Washington side, formerly used by
the Oregon Steam Navigation Company.
The line of road between this city and
Bonneville will also be repaired in a day
or two, and trains run regularly. Ore
We were disposed to doubt the correct'
ness oi our teiepnone aispatcnes con
cerning the Snake and Columbia being
at a standstill, but the Oregonian con
firms it. A comparison with its reports
of Thursday and Friday shows that at
up-river points there was no raise.- At
Riparia it gives the stage for both days
as 22 feet, at Umatilla for both days 30.5,
At the same time the mark has steadily
lifted from 52.6 Wednesday, to 53.3

ing. The flood has not passed up-river
points and can only be accounted for by
the Deschutes and the tremendous flood
of the John Day which- is said to be no
longer a river but that the valley is filled
with water. We confess our inability to
believe the John Dav could raise the
Columbia 4o the extent it has raised but
if our telegrams and those of the Oregon
lan are correct, it can be accounted for
in no other way. If this be so, and one
small tributary can make this raise what

Sunday morning a house belonging to
Wm. Boorman, occupied bv Scott
Boorman, caught fire about 7 o'clock,
either from a defective flue or from a
spark, and in a short time burned to
the ground. The neighbors gathered
very quickly, but the fire had a good
start and was beyond control. The
larger portion of Mr. Boorman's house'
bold goods were consumed, and quite
number . of fine apple trees in bearing
were killed. The loss will reach from
$500 to $600 : no insurance. "Glacier

We are getting out this issue as the
water comes in oq us. A force or men
are moving out our stock type and
material, and hence we can gather but
little- news. In fact there is none to
gather, there is nothing but water and
plunder, moving and boats, gum boots
and lumber, and over and above all an
anxiety as to the outcome. First street
is a river, Second a canal, and Third a
lake and still it comes. ' Dispatches to
the Oregonian show the streams above
as coming rapidly and the prospect now
is lor several feet more of a rise.
Arrangements are being made for
meeting on the summit of Mt. Hood, on
July 19, for the organization of an Alpine
Club. Only those . who are present at
the organization will be accepted as
active members. A banquet will be
spread on the summit at the time and
every endeavor made to have the occa
sion a pleasant one. The club will be
known as "The Mazamaa." Glacier. If
the river continues to rise all The Dalles

The Union Pacific line between Boone
ville and Umatilla Is in a deplorable
condition, but Superintendent Baxter
is indefatigable in his efforts to secure a
resumption of travel. It is hoped that
the transfer arrangement would be com
pleted yesterday, but the task proved
impossible, and it is possible that some
time today the arrangements for a river
servcie will be completed. A steam
boat has reached Umatilla from the up
per Snake river, which will be used to
The Captain's Little Practical Joke on
Ills Passenger. '
Jokes of a "practical" order are usu
ally dangerous in one w'ay or another,
but a story is told of one harmless joke
which illustrated the power of imagin
ation iD an amusing way some years
ago. '"- . " ' -
At the time when most of the North
river sloops came in atCoenties slip, the
Levant, a packet from Fishkill an
chored off the Battery -to wait for a
change of tide. . A passenger who had
been for the first, time in his life on a
sailing vessel, and who had been anx
iously begping to steer the craft, not
noticing that the vessel was at anchor,
was told at last that he might take the
helm. . .
He obeyed the summons with alacrity,
and listened to the captain's cautions
in regard to keeping clear of other ves
sels and so forth, and then the captain
went below. -
The. tide was rushing by at a great
rate, and the amateur helmsman felt
much gratified with the progress his
craft was making aa he looked down at
the water. - '
: In time, however, an investigation of
the surrounding landscape led to a
slight feeling of dissatisfaction on his
part, which steadily increased as time
went on. At last the captain appeared
acrain. and inquired gravely, how he
was getting on. ,
"Well, replied the amateur, with a
dubious smile, "I appear to be gettin' on
first-rate by water, but plaguey slow by
land, if I'm any judge. ; captain."
