Railroad Again Blockaded.
The seoond bad storm of tbe winter

the deep snow that fell, driven by tbe
east wind, was sufficient to tie up
railroad traffic Sunday and part of
Monday. Trains 3 and 5 got as far as
Ibe Dalles Sunday, and laid there un

Lloou ICiver since Saturday night was
Supt. Campbell's speoial car, which
came through from The Dalles at nine

engines, and proceeded west. A trans

THE WATER BILL

heerfullv affirm it is tbe most effective
and best remedy for coughs and colds I
have ever used.'" Sold by Chas. N.
Salem, Or., Feb. 5. That the en
:ctment of tbe Perkins bill, providing
a new water code, would cost tbe peo
ple of Oregon from 150,000 to 200,000
a year, and would open tbe way for
many grafts is declared in a protest
tiled in tbe senate today and signed
by count v Judge Dunn, of Jackson
county ; Circuit Judge 11. K. llanna,
Gus Newberry, 8. C. Minniok, W. R.
Coleman, J. C. Pendleton aud others.
The protest is addressed to the Jack
son county delegation, and asks I hem
to vote against tbe bill. Tbe petition
says amou; other things:
It tbis measure should pass every
owner of a water right in the sttate
woud be uiadn a party defendant, wbo
must deieud the right of tbe use of
tbe water hioh he has employed In
watering bis btock and irrigating bis
premises, even though be may have
used the light for a period of 40
vears, aud nl.nl her he establishes bis
rigbt or uot he oi Id be required to
pay tbe expeuses of tbe litigation nee
essary uuder tbis measure.
It seems to us that the measure is
calculated to open tbe way tor some
corporation to aoquire tbe lights of
tbe small water user tu tbe state by
fieezing biui out through the avenue
of tbe expeuse which this measure
must necessarily eutatil upon tbe
water users of the state.
Should tbis bill pass, in our judg
ment, (he small raucher in tbe moun
tains of tbe state wbo depends for bis
livelihood on irrigation of his prem
ises could not meet tbe expense neces
sary to defend bis rigbt to the use of
water on bis land, aud the passage of
tbe measure would meau confiscation
of bis property interests.
In short, lurking iu tbe bill there
seems to be a scheme to get for some
corporation, or corporations, tbe wat
er rights that now beloug to private
individuals. We respectfully urge
you to vote against tbe measure.
The Perkins bill is tbe water code
drafted by a committee of the Port
land Board ot Trade.
