Blockaded. Trafllo Suspended and
Telegraph Wires Down.
The great storm is about over in the
Willamette valley, but its worst results
are yet to appear in the damage wrought
by wind and rain everywhere.
- The storm has been general and the
reports from Southern Oregon to the
Sound are the same. The damage has
been quite heavy, aSd today lines of
communication and travel are badly de
moralized in nearly every direction.'
An ocean of water is rushing down
every watercourse from the mountains
to the .valleys of the Columbia and the
Willamette, and property being swept
away. It has been one of the severest
storms ever known in the ..Northwest,
considering its widespread'resnlt. Wind,
rain, hail, snow and overflowing streams
are doing their insiduous work.
It has been somewhat difficult for
tbe Portland newspapers and those of
the Sound as well to get their tele
graphic report, owing to the fierce on
slaught of tbe storm on the wires in
nearly every direction. Both com
. panics have been busy keeping their
lines open, and railroad and telegraph
companies have co-operated in restoring
.connection with the outside world.
Tbe wires to San Francisco were down
this morning, but there has f been no
delay, to speak of, in sending out mes
sages, but' the Eastern telegraphic for
The Evening Telegram Tuesday was
somewhat blocked in getting through.
The wires are down to Seattle. The
Western Union opened up a circuit with
San Francisco by way of Spokane and
Ogden, and the Telegram's Washington
state dispatches are coming by way of
Spokane. The Postal has bad. a strug
gle maintaing connections. The San
Francisco wire worked' all right Tuesday
morning, but shortly before noon con
nection was lost again. The Postal's
service to Tacoma and Olympia is work
- ing satisfactorily.
Snow was general east of the Cascades
and over Idaho Tuesday morning. A
light snow from 1 .to .2. inches fell over
- Northwestern Oregon and portions of
Western. Washington daring the past
24 hours. General rain felj over South'
western Oregon and over Northern Cal
ifornia. The etorni area was central over
Southeastern Oregon Tuesday morning,
but it possesses no wind force. .
Had the ground been in a condition to
bold it, there would , have been . accept
able sleighing, in Portland Tuesday
morning. For pedestrians it was nasty
Tbe Columbia Telephone Company's
East Side service Bouth of Burnside
street was wrecked as one result of tbe
effect of the storm- on the wires. The
cable has been restored by this time.
A trolley wire was thrown down on a
telephone line and the East Side ex
change' in the Burkhardt building was
burned out, and tbe operator was given
a shock. ' '

without exception, the adulterated

of them are actually poisonous."

At Albany there was a rise, of seven-
tentbs of a foot in three hours Tuesday
morning. The stage of water there Is
28.1 and there has been a rise, thought
to be local merely, of 6 feeb since 5
o'clock last night. Several residences

shows that the river is falling there,
having gone, down oyer a foot.
At Salem in was on a stand for five
hours from sunrise Tuesday morning.
It is 27 feet . there, and is three feet
higher than Monday.
At Oregon City, the Clackamas is be
ginning to recede. On the flat between
that city and the Park Place tbe
Southern Pacific tracks are covered with
two feet of water, and the fires In the lo
comotives of both passenger trains were
pnt out when' comirig through, the
south-bound train barely pulling
through so tbe fire could be rekindled.
The trolley cars have resumed running,
though somewhat irregular. The Will
amette paper mills resumed operations
Tbe Yamhill river has not been on
such a tear for years. One hundred
feet of the Stayton bridge over the
Santiam bas been swept away. Re
ports from Silvertbn say that Silver
creek is out of its banks and has done
considerable damage. Tbe abatement
of the waters was looked for, beginning
Tuesday evening. ' '
Tbe railways are. among tbe greatest
sufferers from tbe great - storm. The
Northern Pacific will probably - sustain
tbe heaviest loss by reason of tbe inter
ruption to traffic and' the damage to
bridges and trackage.
As all wires along the Northern Pa
cific, were down .Tuesday, .nothing as
suring can be told until communication
is re-established. " Assistant General :
Passenger Agent Charlton said this
morning that be hoped to bring in the
delayed Graa opera company and the
Sound mall and passengers late Tuesday
Tbe train" which carries them has
been' tied rip somewhere between
Ainslie and Olequa. It is the train
which left Tacoma on Sunday night for
Portland. - It was stalled by the Ainslie
washout, and bad to return. Tbe trans
fer of Portland passengers and mail for
the north was made at Ainslie. It is
proposed to get the opera troupe past
tbe washout, and if they can reach
Castle Rock they may be brought to
Portland by boat in time for a show
Tuesday night. ' " . -i
Between here and Spokane and Mon
tana points the Northern Pacific bas
bait a dozen disrupted points. 'Trestles
and bridges have been carried away, and
travel on all ; branch railway lines' bad
to be stopped, v " . : .
1 On the 0. R. & N. travel bas not yet
been interrupted. The chief dispatcher
said 'that tbe main line of track and wires
were "Bttil open. . The train from the
East was 24 hours late -this morning.
Local train, a to The Dalles are ' running
and freight 'is moving all right." ; Tbe
Coeur d'Alene branch is - blockaded by
water and "by washouts. The branch
lines in Idaho are tied" up.
On the 'Southern'-Pacifle trains are
moving. The through express, over 12
hours late; came in via- Albany and Cor
vallis this morning at 2:30 o'clock.' The
south-bound express was sent out at its
regular time last -night. The through
train which left San Francisco Sunday
will arrive here at midnight.
Reports from the Great Northern line
say that there is much interruption to
travel on tnat line by washouts. There
has been a landslide and a bridge swept
out on the O. C. & E.
THE KELI.OGG'S HABD TRIP.
The Northern pacific effected an ar
rangement with the Kellogg Transporta
tion Company today to send a boat up
the Cowlitz river to Bee what could be
done toward transferrins the Sound pas
sengers around the railroad washout be
tween Olequa and Kelso.
Tbe steamer Kelogg left, Portland at 11
o'clock for Kelso. It is expected that
she will reach there at 6:20 this evening.
Then she has 25 miles further to climb
tbe raging torrent of tbe Cowlitz so as to
reach the storm-bound passengers, who
are expected to be at Olequa. They will
be brought to Kelso, and from there a
Northern Pacific special will bring them
to Portland. It is now pretty certain
that there will be no performance at tbe
Marquam tonight, since the Grau com
pany cannot well reach here before 10 or
11 o'clock at best, and it may be mid
night before tbe train gets in. '
