take note of the situation and keep
the number down to an even hundred.

With ori inch of rainfall for the 24
hours ending at 8 o'clock this morn
ing, the total rainfall since the rains
began Jan. 15 is 7.71 inches. Since
Wednesday morning the- river has risen
2.6 feet which indicates that an enor
mous volume of water is coming down
the Willamette considering the low
lands the water had to cover to rise to
the guage of 20 feet. There is some
satisfaction. Astoria had six inches of

Mrs. Alexander Thompson, the only
woman in the house of representatives,
and a democrat, introduced her first
bill an the house yesterday. It provides
that even if a woman ig married oerore
she is 18, regarded as legal age, she is
still in the eyes of the law a minor ano
subject to the laws regarding minors.
As the law now stands, if a woman is
married before she is 18, the marriage
practically makes her of legal age aud
she is not then subject to the laws re
garding minors. ,
Mrs. Catherine Hewlett of Salem is
especially interested in a bill before
the house of representatives providing
