The sewer on Court street is causing a
sensation today. Becoming stopped in
some manner, it began to back np into
the cellars and basements along its line,
and quite a little damage was done to
goods in J. P.. Mclnerny'a basement,
while at last accounts Prinz & Nitechke
feared they would be compelled to. move
out the goods stoied in the lower story
of their building. Workmen are en
gaged in digging np the sewer in the at
tempt to discover wherein lies the dif
ficulty. The American girl depicted on Hood's
Sareaparilla calendar, is certainly a good
advertisement for that famous medicine.
She looks as if she'd taken something
for that "tired feeling" which had been,
very effective and makes her appearance
as fresh and sweet as a daisy with the
June 'dew npon.it. The American girl
looks well wherever you put her, and is
always up-to-date. The calendar is a
very pretty one and artistic. in every de
tail. Ask you druggist for one, or send

At a meeting of the city council some

by the mayor to revise the city charter.
As it is to be acted upon at the coming
session of the legislature, the names of

kicks to kick, may prepare to kick them
now, or forever bold their peace. The
committeemen are Sam Johns, Andrew
Keller, Henry Kuck, of the council, and

A remarkable coincidence, which may
be of interest to believers in telepathy
and other kindred occult services, is to
be noted in connection with the recent
destruction of the Fulton cottage at Sea
side. On that night the members of the
Fulton family were alarmed by a strange
sense' of, smoke prevading their
entire residence in the . city.
The odor was . so marked and distinct
that the ladies of . the -, family became
alarmed and insisted upon a thorough
examination by Mr. Fulton of the entire
premises, which, of coarse, failed to dis
close any fire. Strange as it may seem
this was a veritable occurrence, and be
lievers in the mysterious can make as
much or little of it as they please. As

Pague's snow did not arrive until late
today. Tomorrow be promises' ns fair
weather; continued colder. We are Lav
ing winter on the installment plan, and
the river 1b again blocked at Crate's
point. From present indications and
the amount of floating ice in the river,
we will soon be able to cross on the ice
here. Reports Bay that the thermometer
ranges "between 8 and 16 along the
Snake. There are two inches, of ice in
the locke, and the Dalles C:ty did not
attempt to make the trip from Portland
today. Hungry Harbor is the favorite
winter resort, and there is quite a fleet
in that quarter at present, the ferry boat
joining the other craft this morning.
Great interest was- manifested, last
night in the iate of the big candle,
which had been burning' in" Jacobsen's
window since the night of the 24th of
December, and which bad about run its

"Why should not Hobson allow the

nation. He is too great a man to be
monopolized by one woman." . Another

men are jealous, that's what's tbe mat
ter. Just, because they can't get the

Hobson soon ; but perhaps it would be
well to inform the Webfoot girl that

it takes more courage Jo face some of the

few months, than it did to face all the

in tbis case, and the Portland girls can

THE RUNAWAY BOYS.
Three Lada Who Have About Decided
They Prefer the Boys' and Olrls'
Aid to Life Id a -rail.
Beingmuch interested in the three
lads who were discovered in the box car
of a freight, train which arrived here
early yesterday morning, a reporter re
quested' Marshal, Lauer to permit an in
ter view with them, and therefore was
"run in" to the city jail, where were
found three boys, sitting side by side
against the wall in a dejected .looking
condition. They were clad in a manner
which would not admit of taking a trip
in winter without suffering from cold
Being asked if they were cold on their
journey ' up, they answered that they
were nearly frozen, which the night
watchman said was tbe case when be
found them. As is usual with mis
chievous children they seem very bright,
and there was no hesitancy as they
answered the questions asked, althjufeh
we afterwaj-d learned they bad their
story well learned and h-d told it so
often they had begun to think it true.
J. bey gave their names as
Fred Matson, Guy Cooney and Martin
Taney, aged 14, 12 and 10 respectively.
The youngest was particularly bright
and said when asked how they got here
"We live in Albina and was sweepin'
wheat oat of a box car when old 'Spider
Lege,' a man who alius shuts boys in
when they play in cars, shut us up and
we couldn't git out. 'J' hen the train
started, and we yelled, but nobody
heard us cause the cars made such a
noise, till we got here, then a man
brought as up here.Ii .The reporter then
said, "Did you' sleep any last night?"
'Nop, didn't sleeD none." "When are
you going home?" The little fellow
spoke up and said : "Guess my god
father,, who works on the train '11 cone
and take me." . Mr. Lauer informed us
that a man called' to got' him,' bnt as
Superintendent Gardner, of the Boys
and Girls' Aid Society, bad answered his
telegram last evening saying the boys
had run away from the Society and ask
ing him to hold them until he arrived,
he could' not well let him go.
Tbe little fellows seemed quite peni
tent last night and were said to le
crying as a gentleman passed the jail.
Afterwards the ' man returned and in
company with Mr. Lauer visited them,
anl fonnd them better contented. T
day he brought down some apples and
books, wLich pleased them immensely.
Tbe marshal . has . been very kind to
j them ; bat the boys have been taught a
lesson which they will never forget, and
no doubt have decided it is better to be
under Mr.' Gardner's kind protection,
than to come near freezing and then
spend several days in a jail.

COLUMBIA FIVER ROAD.
Mote Talk About tbo Same Old Road
Wonder If It Will Materialize?
The Telegram has the following con
cerning tne -. mucn-taijtea-ot raiiroaa
from-Crate's point to Columbus. We
wonder if its the same old talk, or
whether there's anything in it :
In a recent interview, Paul F. Mohr,
president of the Columbia Biver Naviga
tion railroad, around the rapids of the
Dalles, in Colombia river, said his line
Would be completed and ready for busi
ness before the end of next summer. The
road will be 20 miles long and of stand
ard gauge. It will extend from Crate's
point; below The Dalles, to Columbue,
opposite Grant's, on the Oregon side,
and tbe grade will lie through Washing
ton. Speaking of his line, Mr. Mobr
"This line will be valuable chiefly for
the traffic it will get froai vessels bring
ing' grain down the Columbia river. Tbe
rapidsaftnad The Dalles are miles
long, "extending from Celilo to a point a
short distance above the town xf Tbe

AGENTS, The Dalles, Oregon.
Dalles. My road will cut across a level
land along the foot of the Klickitat hills,
opposite The Dallep, and run several
miles below The Dalles.
"The Klickitat valley sends out a mil-
lion bushels of grain yearly, and a large
amount of this will probably come to my
road at Columbus.
"Work is not progressing on the line
just now, and will not be begun till the
"It would hot pay to complete tbe
road until tbe Cascade locks were open, .
so the road was not rushed. Now the
locks are open, and the steamer taking
grain at Crate's point fiom oar cars will
be able to carry it to the mouth of the
Columbia. The hauling of the grain on
the Upper and the Lower Columbia
river by water will admit of a lower
transportation rate down the Columbia.
Tbis reduced rate will not only redound
to the benefit of the shippers along that
route, but also to those shipping by rail
roads across the state of Washington to
Fuget sound. They will have to reduce
their rates to a comparative equal basis
so as to meet the water competition.
