Wasiuxotok, March 12. It is ex
pected that the house committee en
rivers ami harbors will have their bill
ready to report in about three weeks.
The bill will probably amount to
about S0,000,ODt). It will contain, as
far as Oregon is concerned, ample ap
propriations for the mouth of the Co
lumbia, for canals and locks of the
Cascades, for tho Willamette river
above and below Portland, for the
upper Columbia, for the Willamette
lwlow Oregon City and the rapids.
Yaonina. bay, Coos bay ami
the Coquille river. These figures em
brace projects in operation years past.
Among new projects which will be
provided for under the recent surveys
nro additional improvements of
TJmpuna river by which increased
depth will be secured between Scotts
bnrgand Gardiner, additional improve
ments provided for tho jetty worlcs on
Siuslaw bay, improvement of Tilla
inook bay and a proposed jetty on
Nchalom bay. Of the loat railway
reported on" by the commission of
engineers appointed to survey
nnd make investigations some
time ago, to overcome obstructions at
Tho Dalles and 3 and 10-milo rapids
nothing can bo at present stated.
Herman is quite determined that the
loat railway if attempted shall not go
through tho same experience that the
locks and canals at the Cascades and nn
nrovements at the mouth of tho Co
lumbia have done. He holds that un
less the river and harbor commiitee
will allow moro liberal appropriations
than have been !eforo given to the
al)ove named project, ho shall
take new steps and seek
for special legislation. He says
he feels able to announce to the papers
of Oregon that the forthcoming report
of the river and harbor committee
will show very liberal allowances for
the two great works now in prog
ress on the Columbia.
Light Houses and Lire Siting SUtiocs
Special to The astokiax.j
Washington, March 12. The sec
retary of the treasury has reported to
the committee on commerce a favor
able bill Tor the establishment of a
light house at Newport, on Yaquina
bay, Or., at a cost of S80,000. lie has
also sent an extended communication
to the committee in regard to the pro
posed life saving station on the Pacific
coast The secretary says he does not
believe a life saving station is neces
sary n Coos bay for the reason that
there is one already established on
the south side of the mouth of
the Coo3 river near cape Ar-
ago light, in regard to tue pro-
pcs2d station at ltoguo river, the tec
rotary says that he has investigated
the reports for tho past fifteen years
and finds that in that time eight ves
sels have been lost in that vicinity and
the value of properly is $33,Sfl As
to Port Orford, there have been four
wrecks in that vicinity in 15 years,
one of which was a steamer valued at
S1G1,000. While no lives have
been lost in these wrecks,
the secretary believes that the
increase or the coastwise trade
demands that nil possible exigencies
should bo met and at any rale one
life saving station must be established
at liogue river. There Is full reason
to justify the establishment of o n a t

St. Louis. March 12. The flood
news from various points along the
Mississippi river and other streams
this morning is that the White and
Black rivers in Arkansas are out of
their banks and overflowing the conn
try on both sides for miles. Heavy
rains have fallen and continue along
these streams, and a general inunda
tion Is looked for. All railways in the
vicinity cf Fort Smith are suffering
from j-orious washouts or lost bridges,
and irains which have been
abandoned temporarily. At Ar
kansas City the water from
the Sappiugtou Hook crevasse
indundated the rear part of tho town
and lands in the back country are be
ing flooded. It is thought, however,
that ho great damage will result as the
interior streams are capable of carry
ing water awa vcrv rapidlv. All the
available boats of tho government fleet
have lcen put in the levee service.
The river front from Arkansas City
down is being carefnlly watched and
all low places are being filled up with

of the dead boy, states that Becker

Attorney General Johnson staled that

that the statute imposing these taxes
was unconstitutional. It y.a finally
decided to postpone the present

the regions about it, has largely to
deal with tho feelings, pride, self-reliance,
manliness, vanity and other
qualities that give self control, the
mustache is more particularly con

When the mustache is ragged and,

there is a lack of proper self-controL.
When it is straight and orderly, the
reverse is the case, other things, of

If there i3 a tendency to curl at the

a tendency to ambition, vanity or dis

It is a curious fact that during the
recent epidemic of influenza the Turks
alone of all the nations of Europe es
caped any visitation thereof, an im
munity which is ascribed by several
prominent physicians to the fact that
they never under any circumstances
remove their fez or turban. More
over, the medical faculty of Vienna,
after a careful investigation into the
causes of the malady, have issued an
official declaration to the effect that
its prevalence has been largely attrib
utable to the frequent doffing of hats
in the street In corroboration of this
theory it is pointed out that the great
majority of the victims belonged to
the male sex, and that there were rel
atively few cases among the soldiers,
who, it is well-known, do not remove
their head-gear when saluting.
