The Lewis mid Clarke road, a large
part of w hlch In an entirely new road,
open to the city a rich and fertile sec
tion of country heretofore entirely de
pendent upon bout service for Its con
nection with the city. All that Is now
needed to give to the people of that part
of the county the. fullent iH-nellt of a
good riwd. la the building of a bridge
acroM Young'n river at the head of the
bay or the eainbllahment of a ferry line
there. It m almoHt the unanimous opin
ion of thimc 11114 Interested In tho mat
ter, namely, the farmers and the mer
chants of the city, that the bridge Is by
far the preferable means of connecting
the east end of the road with the city.
It will cost a few dollui'M more at the
outset, but the Improvement will be a
permanent one, and III not require a
dally outlay for Its maintenance as
would a ferry. It Is with great pleasure
that the mm .s of Mr. V. J. Ingnlls In
securing signatures to the petition for
a tax for this purpose, about to be pre
sented to the county court, Is recorded.
Without exception residents of the
country to be served are In favor of a
bridge, and yesterday with one or two
exceptions every man In the city ap
proached upon the subject put his name
to the petition, which auks for the levy
of a 2-mlll. or leas, tax to cover the coet
of the bridge. One of the merchants
said yesterday that it would be a very
simple matter to make the bridge a toll
bridge for the drat few years, and fix a
small rate of toll which would soon re
pay a large share of the cost of Its
erection. Hut he thought that on gen
eral principles, a straight 2-mlll tax
would be an easy burden for both the
farmers and dwellers In the city to
bear. The objects to be attained are so
great that the cost and trouble In com
parison Is very slight.
When the cost of country produce,
eggs, butter, chickens, milk, potatoes,
In Clatsop county "is considered, and
the well known fact that the farmer,
even at the present high prices, makes
little or no prollt on his wares, Is also
figured in the calculation, every voter
In this county and city should use his
best endeavors and spend his tax money
for the Improvement of roads and the
building of bridges. The magnificent
macadamized country thoroughfares of
New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania
and Virginia, over which one can drive
for miles In any kind of weather, at a
good rate of speed, and find his cattle
In good condition at the end of a thirty
of forty mile trip, speak volumes in fa
vor of movements now on foot In the
West. Germany, Franco and England
long ago realized tho Importance of
having first-class roads. Everywhere
and In every direction one can spin
along through those countries, past
beautiful country resiliences, fine or
chards, cozy farm housta and cottages,
and can see the results to both farmer
and dweller In- the city of these roads.

'Resolved, That our people. Irrespect
ive of party affiliations, favor the free
coinage of allver and believe that our
mints could bo aafety opened to free
coinage under an administration In
which the people had confluence. We
regret that the national convention at
Ht. Iiula did not view this question as
we view It. We accept, however, the
assurance of the party that Its efforts
will be devoted to the securing of an
International agreement fr the unlimit
ed coinage of silver as a sacred pledge.
We believe the pledge will be fulfilled
und we are llnuly of the faith that the
remonetlzutlon of sliver, so essential to
the welfare of this and all civilized
countries, will be accomplished through
the efforts and under the direction of
the Republican, party of this country,
and through no otfier. Kxccpl on the
silver Uest!un, we heartily endorse,
the platform of the party at St. Louis
and di-clarc our undiminished and un
wavering belief In the great doctrine of
the protection of American labor and
American Industries." Continuing. Uie
"We favor free silver, but we value
free government more, and while the
success of the party upon the Chicago
platform might bring silver monometal

Washington, Spt. 30. Reports receiv

done throughout Hie surrounding coun
try by lac t' night's storm. Great dam
age Is also reported In the farming dis
tricts, where all the grain In stack or
shock has lieen strewn over the land.
Many barns have been blown down.
The White House was slightly Injured
by the storm, a portion of the copper
roofing being stripped off and other
damage done. The tall flagstaff from
'which the signal was given to the city
that the president was In town, dlsap

of historical associations, were com

surviving trees suffered, the loss of thelr
tops and principal branches and are
permanently defaced. F. C. Blount, a
'member of the Interstate commerce
commission, was In Reatty's restaurant
at the time it fell. He was so badly
bruised he has been unconscious ever
since. It Is feared he Is also Injured
internally and may not recover. The
storm damage nere is estimated to run
from a quarter to a half million dollars.
At Alexandria there were four fatal
ities: W. D. Stewart, killed by falling walls.

Lancaster. Pa., Sept. 30. Late this
evening telegraphic and telephonic com
munications have been established with
the surrounding country and later re
ports confirm the earlier advices of the
wide extent of this morning's cyclonic
storm. Every section of country has
been heard from and the story Is that
ruin rode In the w ake of the gale. While
an estimate of the total loss is necessa
rily speculative, there does not seem
to be any doubt that it will easily reach
a million dollars and may largely ex
reed that amount. The destruction of
the Pennsylvania railroad bridge across
the Susquehanna at Columbia over
shadowed all else In relative Import
ance. The bridge, which comprised 17
spans, was completely demolished. It
was insured for $300,000.
Savanna, Ga.. Sept. 30. The hurri
cane which swept over Savannah yes
terday afternoon cost nearly a dozen
lives and entailed a loss of nearly $1.
OoO.Ooo. Each report that Is received Is
worse than the first. It was thought
only one death would be caused by the
storm, but the number has reached
eleven dead and many Injured.
New Orleans, La., Sept. SO A disas
trous hurricane has visited Jackson
ville, Fla., and forty Uvea have been
lost. Telegraphic communication Is
practically cut off from there.
Memphis, Sept 30. A Commercial
Appeal special from Jacksonville, Fla.,
It Is a conservative estimate to say
ithat fifty people have lost their lives
! from yesterday's hurricane, and the
' number may run much higher. News
; from that portion of the state where
j the storm struck first Is very slow Jn
coming In, for tjie wires are down and
the railroads Impassible. Wrecking
' parties which went out this morning
have not returned, and it will be to
i morrow before the full extent of the
: damage Is known. The hurricane struck
' Florida at Cedar Keys, and passed In
j its path of destruction over twenty
j towns and villages, and reports show
; that between twenty and forty people
jhave certainly "been killed. Cedar Keys
: is about 100 miles southwest of Jackson
I vllle. The hurricane, which had been
; churning the waters of the gulf, first
struck this place, a village of 1500 in
habitants. The only report which has
come concerning Cedar Keys Is that
the town has been swept away and
many lives have been lost. This report
comes from Gainesville, which Is fifty
miles away. Nobody has been able to
get any reliable news from Cedar Keys.
Northeasterly the storm struck Wlllls
, town, a small town where eleven houses
' were blown down, one person killed.
and several so badly injured that It is
expected they will die.
