Many Pleasures and Hard,
ships Experienced by
TO THB EmTOR OPTHK EXPRRffi:
The republicans, as a party,
decided that the wind-up of the
political campaign in Linn county
could not possibly be a grand suc
cess unless the Lebanon Cornet
Band took a prominent in furnish
ing the music. Accordingly ar
rangements were perfected where
by A. A. Kees, who, by the way, is
one of the staunchest republicans
in our precinct, agreed to transport
the boys to our sister city, the
About 2 p. m. Saturday, June 2,
1894, this noble personage could
have been seen driving four stal
wart horses, which were hitched to
something very much resembling
a schooner of low pattern, and
which would have served the pur
pose a great deal better had it been
a schooner, up Main street, slowly
wending his way toward the band j
hall. Then, one by one, the boys
sallied forth from their homes to
board this "overland schooner,"
and by 3 p. m. she had a full cargo
of passengers and was ready to set
sail. After obtaining the clearance
papers, Captain A. A. Kees took
his poet st the belm, all the canvas
she oould possibly carry was spread
and the little vessel slowly glided
out of the harbor at Lebanon, to
cross the boundless main to wind
ward and enter the harbor at
Albany, the capitolof Linn county.
After being out about an hour, the I
little schooner encountered a squall,
which, although it gave the passen
gers a little insight to the pleasures
of sea-life, and practice in holding
the festive umbrella, did not visi
bly retard her progress, and Bhe
continued her course to windward,
sighting mny vessels of lesser
note, but hailing none.
After a continuous sail for about
two hours and forty minutes, she
entered the port of Albany and was
rapidly glidiug down the channel ,
to her dock, when in some way,
something went wrong with her
rudders, and but for the prompt
action of our noble captain, nil
might have found a watery grave.
At last she landed and the boys
were conveyed to the Hotel de St.
Charles where a bounteous repast
was served them for the sum of
25 cts. per head, and the boys were
then prepared to enter upon the
labors of the evening.
It was with no little anxiety, yet
with a boldness that was never
surpassed in the history of Amer
ica, that Prof. M. J. Denny led his
little band of 14 men out upon the
streets of that city, there to en
counter three different bands, one
of Albany, one of Tangent, and one
of Sodaville. When Prof. Denny's
band had played their first piece
on the street, the great round of
applause that greeted their ears
told them they need no longer fear
criticism and ridicule, that they
had made a decided hit. After
playing several pieces, the Albany

Lebanon, and Sodaville bands
marched to the court house and
there in one grand band of 40
players rendered those soul-inspiring
strains of "Minor vs. Major,"
and "The Great Inter-Ocean;' By
this time the court house was filled
to its utmost capacity, and it being
impossible for any of the bandmen
to get inside, that grand band was
there disbanded, and the Sodaville
band immediately took their de
parture. The Albany boys de
parted, and the Lebanon Cornet
Band was left to "hold the fort"
until the speaking was over, for,
as we have said, Captain A. A. Kees
is a staunch republican and he
went co hear the speaking.
' At twelve o'clock the boys found
their way to the dock, boarded the
schooner and were ready to set sail
for their native hefme. With a
clear sky and a fresh breeze from a
quarter four points to leeward,
Cap(. Kees again took his post at
the helm, ordered the canvas hoisted
and the little "overland schooner''
was homeward Wind. But little
did she know what was in store for
her fie she reached her destination.
After clear sailing for half an hour
the western skies tfere suddenly
darkened by an enormous storm
cloud, the mighty thunders rolled,
great flashes of lightning would
light up our course, and the little
vessel labored heavily and hope
lessly in the trough of the deep.
Even our brave captain began to
despair of ever seeing his native
home and loved ones asain, and
said "no ship could live in such a
About 2 a. m. the skies lighted
up for a few minutes and the cap
tain got an observation snd in
formed ub that we were about half
way across that boundless main,
and that we had then been out
two hours. The sky was again
suddenly darkened and that steady
downpour of rain continued. There
we were at the mercy of the mighty
waves. The captain, at his obser
vation, informed us that the vessel
had drifted two points to starboard
and that she was then in the lati
tude of the shoals, that there was
imminent danger of her foundering
ou the rocks. Suddenly there was
a grinding noise heard on the star
board and the little vessel quivered
from stem to stern. The captain
worked the tiller with all the
power his brawny arm could exert
and little vessel sheered off to lar
board, back into the channel, and
another great catastrophe . was
thereby averted. .
After plowing through those
mighty waves in a drenching storm
for two hours more, we came in
sight of Lebanon Lights, finally
landing at the very dock in Leba
non where, thirteen hours before,
we had boarded that self-same
schooner. And yet some of the
boys have been heard to remark,
they would go again next election.
Although, when we got home, there
was not a dry thread on us, we
enjoyed the trip immensely, and
Capt. Kees was heard to say,
"these are they who came up
through great tribulation." 1
As a member of the band, I will
take it upon myself, in behalf of
the band, to thank Captain Kees
for his kindly care and "Home
Protection" to us during our trip
to our neighbor city. May he live
long and enjoy the love and good
will of every American citizen, and
may he never haye to again crocs
"that boundless main" in such a
storm as he did on the night of
June 2, 1894.

A Fatal Accident.
William, the 16-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Antony Frazier, of Silver
Creek Falls, near Stayton, left home
about 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon to
deliver a message to a neighbor a short
distance away, and as was bis usual
custome when going through the tim
ber, carried bis 32 caliber rifle in case
lie might find name for food. It seems
that be bad made arrangements with i
a number of comrades to go fishing in
the afternoon on Drift creek, (about
three miles from Silver Falls) and as
he ueared this point be left the road
and took a trail leading to Drift creek
falls, only a short distance away from
the road. These falls are about thirty
feet higb and from the brink one can
see down the stream aud it is supposed
that be intended to see if the boys bad
yet begun fishing, and then finish
what he had started todoand returned
to the creek. Here the body was found

THE HIGH WATER IN PORTLAND
Never before In the history of Port
land, so fur as records show, or even
shadowy Indian traditions relate, have
the waters of the Willamette risen to
such a great height.. Monday the
flood had readied a stage that was
alarming, and still greater destruction
of property is threatened.
Without entering into details as to
meles aud bounds of the flood, It can
truthfully stated fully one-half of the
heavy wholesale and retail business of
Portland is either submerged, or very
seriously aflected by tbe prevailing
flood., Below Salmon street, extend
ing to different distances from Front
to fifteenth street in the northern part
of the city, the various streets are more
or les9 involved in tbe great spreading
of waters. To estimate the damage
that has and will result to the pwners
of property aud to private interests
would be utterly impossible. They
will foot up a very large sum. Every
business is more or less affected by the '
The flooded districts are constantly
patrolled by boats aud rafts. Gum
boots cut a most Important figure in
the scene. All -along the river line
tile water has reached a depth that
uauiis cannot reach Front or First
streets. Everything except brick,
solidly built wooden structures, iron
ami and Btone, 18011031. All tbe sub
merged district looks like a vast lake.
Hundreds of persons, whose places
of business are submerged, have moved
out and established new temporary
places. In the lower portions of the
city, where a great many poor persons
live, the condition is a most deplorable
one. - Great numbers have been driven
out by the invading waters and have
taken temporary refuge wherever
shelter can be found. Much distress
already prevails, and should the floods
rise much and continue for any length
of time, a greatdeal of suffering, result
ing from destitution, will follow. At
present the river is slowly rising, and
the outlook is very gloomy and dis
couraging. The river at 3 P. M. Mon
day was 31.8 feet.

Indiana, are never without a bottle of
