cannot live very much longer.
It Is estimated that without any hur
rying of the work, the grade for the

An old river man stated yesterday
that the condition of the channel was
now such that larue steamers like the
Potter and Ocean, Wave could only
get Into Ilwaco at certain times with
the tides, and he thought that this fact
would soon make Clatsop beach the

Clerks In the various stores are be
coming a little Impatient at the delay
on the part of employers In making an
agreement to close stores on the Fourth
of July. As the employes of commer
cial houses have had no general holiday
this year, it would seem a small thing
that they should be given a day off
on the celebration of the nation's birth
day. Country customers can easily be
notified In advance of the closing of
the stores, and It Is not probable that
there will be much business done any
way. A number of leading merchants
entertained such an opinion, but all
cannot be brought Into line.
Auditor Kuetner, of the A. and C. R.
R. R., stated yesterday that the only
thing that would prevent trains from
