News has Just reached here by tele
phone cofiflrmlng rumors of heavy tos
of life and property In the neighbor
hood of Peterman and Durnt Corn,
wrought by tho tornado which passed
near there yesterday. Ten persons are
known to have been killed, numerous
barns and residences and outhouses
were swept away, entailing a loss
which will reach high In the thousands.
On account of the bad condition ot tho

on tho occupants, killing or injuring
all within the buildings.
It will probably be several days be

Decision on Plans Will Then Be Reached

Route Schema for Continuous Canal
From Big Bddy to Celllo.
Washington. April 15. Representa
tive Moody, before leaving Washing
ton, had n final conference with tho
member of the Board of HnglRcers
having under consideration the open
lag of tho Columbia River from The
Dalles to Celllo. and waa Informed
that the Board will meet In Portland
May 11 to coastaer raoro fully all data
that has recently been collected by
Major Langfitt regarding tho portion
ot tne river to be Improved.
Mr. Moody says that, while It la Ira
poetlble to say what the Board will
finally report, Ita conclusion will
largely depend upon calculations to
be baaed on data that has boon com
piled by Major LangfltL bearing on
the several modifications or substi
tution for the Harts' project
Mr. Moody also had under consider
ation with the engineers tho removal
of ono of the reefs at Ten-Mllo Rap
Ids, with a view to facilitating steam
boat navigation up to the lower end
of the proposed state portage road.
That proposition will be considered
by tho Board when It meets. Tbe
Board will prooabty visit tbe obstruc
tions in the river and will determine
for Itself the need of blasting on this
reef. Having viewed the river, dur
ing the Summer, the Board at Its
coming meeting will havo opportunity
to see the stream at the hlah atnie of
the water and form a better Idea of
tne volume of water to be controlled.
The Beard will make an extraordl
nary effort to devise a practical plan
that enn be carried out at a coat not
exceeding Captain Harts' estimate for
nis original scheme, and there Is
some hope that such a plan may
eventually be found. In the light of
data that has been collected by Ma
jor LaagfitL tbe Board will be able
closely to estimate the cost of the
several modifications of the Harts'
project that have been proposed and
will also be ablo to estimate the cost
of other schemes that have been
brought forward by other engineer.
Mr. Moody has urged that If tho
Harts' plan in an amended form Is
not agreed upon, the Board seriously
consider the proposition of a contln
uous canal from tho Big Kddy to Ce
lllo. and determine whether or not
4ucb a canal can be built by making
use of natural cbannels through tbe
rocks to the south of the river, at a
cost not greater than Harts' estimate.
This suggestion will be Investigated
and. If It proves fcaslblo at reason
able cost, may be accepted, as tho ad
vantages of a continuous canal are
recognized by many of the officers.
