yesterday's Oregonian that he will
give $100 for a perfect front tooth.'
And in another column an entire set
of 32 is advertised for $10. Evidently
there are teeth and teeth.
The Oregoniaii. gravely informs a
listening constituency thatOIr. Turk'
has announced that he "will "stand by
Portland. It is evident that Portland
srill stand by' him. It is a lovely
combination; a holy alliance; and an
amusing episode, to those acquainted
with the facts.
Tar costly and disastrous experi
ence of the Southern Pacific railroad
company, iu being obliged to depend
solely on wood for engine fuel in the
recent now blockade, is an additional
argument for the necessity of thai
company's development of the coal
measures of the Xehalcm.

to give each new subscriber a drink of
crab cider is said to be experiencing a
boom iu his circidation department.
The power of the press in Kentucky is
making itself felt, and when the eider

the progress of the constituents of the

The necessity of a newspaper to de
velop and adverts a new town is
great. A townsile is laid out one
month and a paper started in the
next "When one of these future cit
ies is described cither in a metropoli
tan journal or a real estate advertise
ment, in a list including a store, bank,
lumber mill, hotel, is the statement of
one or more weeklies started. This is
as it ought to be, for good newspapers
are the heart of a community. From
them radiates the strength, pnsh, and
life of a town. Though run by pri
vate parties they approach the near
est to a genuine pnblic affair of
any business enterprise. They are
the mouth pieces by which the
people tell tho outside world of their
city, actual and prospective. News
papers get more blame and do more
good iu return than any other inslitu

Ock popnlabon in 1750 was 1,200,
000. At the end of thirty years, in
17S0, it had reached 2,015,000 At the
cad of thirty years more, the lifetime
of a generation, 1S10, it stood 7.239.
SS1. In the course or another gener
ation, or in 110, it was 17,000,153. At
the present time the figures run up to
the neighborhood of 05,000,000. If
this ratio of increase is a fair basis for
prediction we shall have at the time
when the ten-year-old boy of to-day
shall be forty ycas of age, iu 1920,
something like 1G0,000,000 of people in
the United States, and when that man
of forty reaches his seventieth birth
day, 1950, we shall have close upon
400,000,000. That mans sou, who will
be in the youth of his old age' in
1900, one hundred years from now,
will be the citizen of a republic with
a population of more than 1.000,000,

unthinkable, and so far beyond the
reach of our imagination that they are
It was expected, that at yesterday's
meeting of the senate select committe
on Pacific railroads the bills with re
gard to both the Union and Central
Pacific roads would be finally acted
Hpon. The committee has already
decided to reiort the Union Pacific
bill drafted by senator -Prye, but it
will not be given out for publication
matil the Central Pacific bill has also
been passed upon. The Union Pacific
bill extends for fifty years the lime
for which, the government debt must
be paid, and fixes the rate of interest
t 8 per cent. The senators
will not state what time
of extension or rate or interest will be
Made in tli" case or the Central Pa

road will be iven about twice the

THE HIGH WATER IN TORTLASD.
Graphic Incidents of the Flood in the
The Telephone, down at 3:10 yester
day afternoon, reports the "Willamette
falling at Portland, but still booming.
The water reached to Third street, but
under the circumstances compara
tively little damage was done. The
two bridges across the "Willamette at
Portlaud, though badly shook up, are
standing, and will need extensive re
pair. The highest point reached by the
water at Portland was 28 feet and
six inches above low water mark.
The following from yesterday's Ore
gonian givesan idea of the incidents
of the Hood there, aud the nature of
the damage occasioned thereby:
Ira F. Powers will perhaps bo the heav
iest loser in Portland by the flood. In
addition to nearly DOO.OOO feet of lumber,
which floated off and the greater portion
of Vhich was lost, ono of his warehouses
filled with high-priced furniture was
shattered against the Morrison street
bridge and only a few loads were saved.
The new steamer Northwest, in com
mand of Captain Kellogg, was the means
of saving three warehouses, which ore
now lying out of tho current against the
P. & W. V. railway track. Tho machine
shjp proper, which was tho first to float
off, has sunk near the old city water
works, where it first lodged.
As the water was gradually rising, the
danger to tho other warehouses became
apparent. The steamer Northwest fast
ened ropes around each of them and be
gan to remoe tho furniture from tho
ono most accessible. Tho work was not
prosecuted withoat danger, as tho build
ings were liable to float off at any time.
Mr. Power's men did not caro "to en
danger their lives in doing this work, but
Captain Kellogj?s crew wero not so timid.
Theg began their work in dead earnest,
but did not keep it up long. Two of tho
warehouses broke loose at tho samo time
and tho men barely escaped with their
lives by jumping into their rowboals
with which they had provided themselves
for .just such an emergency.
Tho two buildings soon were carried
into the current and got nearly half a
inilo ahead of the XortlticcsL Captain
Kellogg put on full steam and tho ex
citing chaso commenced. Tho North
west was not long in closing tho gap,
but hho could not make fast to both tho
buildings, as tho rapid current would
have carried them all to destruction
against tho bridge. One of tho ware
houses went crashing against tho bridge,
while the other was towed out of tho cur
rent and tied to tho track of tho P. &
Tho warehouses which came down
later were treated in a similar manner.
They are all fattened to the railway track,
and yesterday two crews of men wero at
work removing tho furniture.
A St. Helens dispatch snys:
The sawmill has closed down, and tho
lumber on tho wharf is'in danger of float
ing away. Tho KrHoyij has been en
gaged for tho past three days in remov
ing live slock from tho lower part of
Sauvie's island to a place of safety on
this side. No serious damage has as yet
lesulted from the flood in this vicinity,
with the exception of tho loss of a few

A Prop'ispil National I.r.v Hcirini; on The
Congressman IJrcckinridge of Ken
tucky has introduced a bill in the
house to regulate theabu'.c complained
or. He proposes to require persons
who make their residence on boats on
the interior waters or tho United
Stales, to obtain a license. To do this
it is to be enacted.
That it is to be unlawful for any per
:oii to reside and make residenceupon
a boat on lakes, rivers, or oilier inte
rior waters of the United States unless
a license so to do is first obtained for
each head of family, for himself and
his family; which license shall only be
granted upon proof of the good char
acter of the applicant, and tijon the
payment of a fee of twenty-five dollars
The license shall describe the points
ai which, or between which said boat
may lie or ply; aud on each boat shall
be paiutcd in large letters, on
each side thereof, tho name
or the license, the name of
the boat and date of expiration
or license. The license shall be issued
under such rules and regulations and
by such officers or employes of the
United States as the secretary of the
treasury may describe and designate.

Tho quickness of the express agent
saved a robbery at the Upper Cascades
last "Wednesday night. The agent
was silting in his car which was along
side the what f boat, as the train was
standing on the river front lie was
dozing apparently when a movement
of his dog awakened him. lie lis
tened and heard men trying to get in
tho tloor. "Without waiting, he raised
his revolver and fired a broadside
through the door. The would be rob
bers then turned and tied but fired
in return. One bullet just missed the
agent grazing along his stomach. lie
sprung to the door, opened it, and
fired again. No one was evidently
injured as there were no traces of
blood. Valuable express was aboartl
aud the agent was fortunate to fright
en them away without more serious
results. No one saw the robbers and
hence no effort was made to detect
