The city council met in regu
lar sesion last night at the office
of the Maupin State Bank with
all officers present except L. C.
Henneghan and Dr. Stovall, the
latter arriving for the last half
of the session.
Mr. Shattuck presented a bill
for materials purchased which
was rejected on the grounds
that certain articles should be
paid by private parties.

of the franchise given for light

The treasurer's and recorder's

Cash on hand
The ordinance and contract
permitting 75 per cent payment

desire to pass it again.
The subject of withdrawing

cussed and the recorder ordered
to write to the County. Court for
Subject oi' allowing barns
erected within a limited section
of the town was voted a nuis
ance by four councilmen. A
committee was appointed to
draft an ordinance regulating
the construction of barns.
Last night's O. T. trains made
their regular schedule, the
northbound arriving in Poitland
on time, and the one to Bend
only two hours late, acconing
to advice received by Local T.
Agent E. W. Griffin. Only the
mail from Warm Springs arrived
due to the fact of the Portland
ostoffice department not learn
ing of the train's movements in
time to get the mail on it. The
big slide on the double tracks
between North and South Junc
tion was cleared at about 5:30
ast evening. The high water of
Wapinitia creek waBhed one
support from the railroad bridge
at its mouth. The channel was
diryerted and this fixed in about
couple of hours. The 0. T.
have three work trains on this
line repairing and putting the
road into normal condition 88

trains are expected to come
Frank Buzan Dead
Buildings Washed Away
The body of Frank Buzan
which Is being brought out of
the mountains near Cascade
Locks is to arrive here tmmor-
row afternoon, according to tele
advice received here.
Reports state that Mr. Buzan
had been looking after a camp
in the mountains. After a trip
to the settlement he left Decem
ber 16 for his camp. The re
turn of his dogs some time later
giving evidence that not all was
well with him caused the search
to be made which resulted in
finding that he had become lost
in the storm and frozen to death
Saturday afternoon Maupin
people went out to see the river
and Bakeoven creek which were
rushing muddy torents made so
by the continuous down pour of
rain for the past several days.
The Deschutes reached the .high
est at about 10 o'clock Saturday
night when the buildings were
washed off the island above the
bridge. Large trees and im
mense quantities of driftwood
were carried down by the muddy
The water nearly reached the
planks of the highway bridge
over Bakeoven and looked danger
ous for both it and the O- W.
bridge below it. L. D. Kelly re
ported a rise in the creek of ?J
feet after one o'clock Saturday
afternoon. The Standard Oil
Co's warehouse narrowly escaped
being badly washed underneath.
The sight of the Deschutes
river covering the islands in its
midst and flowing out over the
bottom lands is also interesting,
for it has often been remarked
that the Deschutes does not
ordinarily during a years time
raise or lower more than a few
The rainfall which has been so
heavy the past three weeks form
ed into dense clouds and gently
fell until the sky seemed clear
when a few hours of wind seem
ed to replace the clouds with
others which again fell in rain
until the sky cleared once more.
This process repeated itself until
the rivers and streams could not
contain the water and hence the
overflows and many land slides.
Last winter may be expressed
as an epoch year for snowfall
and drifts. The present season
is proving more memorable for
its high water actions. The fact
that White river a few miles
north of here has carried such a
flood of water within its banks
and on top of same as to reach
high up into the mechanical con
struction of the Pacific Light and
Power Co's. plant on this stream
is almost incomprehensible.
This power house as all know, is
far up high and dry above the
ordinal course f the river
which flows in a deep gorge at
Marion Duncan came over by
team from Smock Monday. He
reports the two upper White
river bridges in fcood condition,
unnaffected by the present high
water. Several small bridges
And all culverts in that section
are washed out. Otherwise the
roads are good. Lower White
river bridge between here and
Tygh is unsafe for a team to
cross. Some damage was done
to the forms for the new high
way bridge below it
Don Stogsdill was in townTues
day from his ranch over looking
the White river electric power
plant Mr. Stogsdill states that
since the high water, which if
the highest he has ever seen
White river, no lights are to t
seen at the plant, the water hav
ing come into the machinery and
making it impossible to operate.
Saturday morning's 0. W.
train after being held here until
Sunday afternoon, went down to
Fargher station where all auto
mobiles available were waiting
to take the passengers to Grass
Valley where they boarded the
Shaniko branch train and went
on to The Dalles, arriving there
at six o'clock that evening.
While waiting here the passen
gers enjoyed the hospitality of
the Hotel Kelly, where Saturday
night a dance was given for
their pleasure, the dining room
being cleared and dancing was
enjoyed until twelve o'clock
