. , The Oregonian says the Union Pacific
intends putting a lot of heavy blasts in
the sliding . mountain, and eee if it can
not be forced to get along into the river
and out of the way. . If, this is not
successful, a trestle will have to be built
along the edge of the river, and this can
not be done until the water goes down.
In our opinion the company, will have
one of the most difficult problems to
solve right there that ever confronted it.
With a moving mountain on one side
and a raging flood on the other, it is
litterally a case of being between the

The weather yesterday was decidedly
warm, and at once the question was
asked, "Will it raise the river?" The
weather bureau said yesterday that the
temperature was somewhat higher, but
that conditions were such that no matter
how warm it turned the river here would
continue to fall for four or five days.
The Snake is falling steadily and if the
river is to come up again, it must do so
from the flood of the upper Columbia
alone. If it is possible for the Columbia
unaided by the Snake to give us another
bath, then we had better move, and stay
moved. It will not come back to the

The Snake river at Riparia fell 2.2 feet

o'clock this morning. For the same
time the Columbia at Umatilla fell .8 of
a foot. The temperature yesterday all
over the basin of the Columbia was
high and the weather bureau reports in
dications of it being much higher today
and tomorrow. Mr. Pague says this
morning that the river will continue to
fall until about a forty-two foot stage is
reached, at which point it may become
stationary for some time. The upper
Columbia is holding up well, but the
Snake is falling rapidly and is done for

severe one, bat Mr. McCoy takes it as

Getting Oat of It.
A trip up Second this morning shows
rocky sidewalks, a little water and lots
of mud. Most of the store buildings
have been cleaned out, and are, so to
speak, "hung out to dry.' Blakeley &
Houghton are moving their stock back.
Farley & Frank have . already moved
back and are open for business. Mays &
Crowe will not get back for two weeks,
taking advantage of the situation' to
make repairs and re-paint. Rorden will
not be back until the latter part of next
week.-. Pease & Mays will do a, lot of
painting, and will not be back for several
weeks. Skibbe's hotel is again running
on the lower floor. Joles Bros, are at
their old stand. On First and on Second

yet being occupied. Between Court and
Union everybody is drying out, and next
week will find most of them back. The
Umatilla house is being overhauled and
the lower floors will be occupied early
next week. When the sidewalks are
again cleaned, little will be left to show
that the Columbia had been using oar

It Might Have Been.
A few days ago a citizen purchased a
pound of butter at a store whose pro
prietor does not . advertise, and on cut
ting into it found a small tin box, which
contained a piece of paper bearing, the
following, -written in a neat feminine
hand: "J am a girl 17 years old, good
looking and an excellent housekeeper,
Should this be found by some unmarried
Christian gentleman, will he please
write to the following address," etc.
The finder, being a bachelor, decided to
unravel the affair, and succeeded only to
destroy the romance. The girl had died
many years ago, leaving an aged husband
and a grown family. Ex.
