as to the course ot the market. The

Water May Rise to the Danger Point
on Lower Docks Guage Today In
dlcates 12.7 at the Morrison Street
Portland Doe. 9. The river is now
a ta critical stage opposito Portland,
nnd wot wpnther4 mnv cause a rise
that would put the water on the lower
Ash street dock within a week, ac
cording to Forecast Official Deals.
"The guago now, gives the height
nf tho vlvpr Iipi-p nt 12.7." ho said.
"while the tendency Is to remain sta
tionary within the next 24 hours. At
Eugene the river rose a foot within
the past 12 hours, whllo at Salem and
Albany It is falling."
Driftwood gives the gatcmen at
Morrison and Madison street bridges
considerable trouble, and all their
spare time is used In ridding the
drawheads of the tangle of brush,
logs and tree roots that accumulate
there. Sometimes the drift can he
Rhnvorl awav into the current with
the aid of Jong poles, while at others
the passing street car is used in haul
ing the mass Into the stream.
ThPi rainfall so far In December
amouits to 3.86 inches, which, added
torNfa,vombcr's record of 9.94, keeps
tho soil of Western Oregon full of
water, so that what rain falls here
after will seek the streams rapidly.
A good deal depends, therefore, on
the humidity of the Immediate future
as to whether goodB shall be moved
from the lower docks. 'A strict watch
Is being kept by the local weather
bureau officers.
