AT THE STATE PRISON.
Water has been on the basement
floor of (he state prison each winter
when there have been hard rains. It
has been a regular feature of winter
at the penitentiary, and the people
there hardly know how to get along
without It. Platforms are-bullt-orer
a foot on the floor or two high and the
water is rising.
Saturday night the water rose
higher than usual around the prison.
About 8 o'clock at night the dyke
built last summer to confine the
waters of Mill Creek broke and the
water went down about a foot, and
the waters found vent through their
old channels through Yew Park.

Late Sunday afternoon the Salem

At 11:30 a ni. today the Willamette
river registered 24 feet Olnches above

the rate of 2,rnches per hour This
is the highest stage attained by tho
river since the freshet of February,
1890. Both the O. R. & N. and 0. it?.
T. docks are almost submerged, the
water having reached the caves of the
two structures. The main river and
its many tributaries have overflown
their banks at different points. Tho
entire west bank of the river is cov-

The rainfall for Saturday and Sun

the Southern Pacific Passenger depot,
was 2.33 and 2 Indies respectively.
As a result of the excessive rainfall,
the roadbed of the S. P. Co. in tho
vicinity of Jefferson was completely
submerged and the rails and tics for
a considerable distance were mis
placed. In view of this fact, the

The Salem McKlnleyltcs held their
final meeting in the opera houso Sat
urday evening when tho election of
McKinley was ratified. Considering
the very Inclement weather, a fair
audience was In attendance. At the
opera house the omnipresent small boys
was present In largo numbers.
The many discordant sounds that
camo from their horns mado It almost
Impossible to enjoy tho addresses by
the speakers. Shortly after 8 o'clock
a short procession was formed at tho
armory under the direction of Chief
Marshall E. C. Cross. It consisted
of the Second Regiment band, about
20 members or the Salem Flambeau
club and citizens.
The lino of march was west on
State to Commercial, thenco north to
Court, tlicnco east to Liberty and in
to opera house. Notwithstanding the
order of the party leaders that no of
fensive transparencies were to be car
ried in tho procession, tho following
were noticed, fully a fourth of which
were directed on tho editor of the
journal: "Hail to tho Chief, his
name is McKinley." "10 to 1 thnt
Horer Is dead,"
Tho Iowa Ass could not carry Ore
gon." "One pair beat threcof a kind."
"Poor Tom .Watson." "What's tho
Matter With Hanna." "Tho threo

"Great Scott! 1,000,000 majority."
'Glvo Us Open Mills. Moro Smoko
and Less Wind." Honest money for
pensions honestly earned." "Who
will caro for poor Hofer now."
Gov. IV. P. Lord acted as chairman
of the ovcnlng.ln his usually acceptabio
manner. Having stated the object of
tho meeting, tho chlof cxocutlvo in
troduced Claud t Gatch, Salem's mayor
who gave one of his 10-mlnutc speeches
which was of great Interest. He re
ferred to tho Republican party as tho
party of progress and Inspiration.
Mrs. Hallio Parrlsh-Hinges thou
sang "Columbia the Gem of tho
Ocean" and this number was one of
the principal features of tho overling's
program. This talented vocalist was
heartily encored and gracefully re
sponded a second and a third tlmo.
Leo Willis and E. II. Flagg, two
old Democrats, explained tho reason
why they supported McKinley. Mr.
Willis stated that tho Republican
party now contained a great portion
of tho Democratic party. Mr. Flagg
stated to his friends tho reason why
supported McKinley in a good speech,
Tho Glee Club, consisting of Prof.
R. A. Heritage, Leo Stelner, Henry
Kundret and Jnko Wcuger, wore next
heard and wcro obliged to respond to
Private Secretary W. S. Dunnlway
read a short communication from Attorney-General
O. M. Idleman who
was unublo to bo piescnb as ono of tho
speakers of tho evening. Ho attri
buted tho election of McKinley largely
to the lino of argument advanced by
tho "Popocrats" during tho campaign.
Ho eulogized quite extensively the
bound money Democrats "who placed
principle abovo party and gave their
unremitting assistance in the election
of Win. McKinley" Ho also praised
the managers of the campaign In
Marion county and was much pleased
to see that the Populist majority of
about 1,000 in Marlon had
been erased and that tho county had
gone for McKinley by several hun
dred." Ho was also delighted by tho
fact that the "horrible stain of Popu
lism" had been wiped away.
O- B. Moores followed and read ex
cuses from several of the speakers of
the evening who were unable to bo
present. Ho then took upon himself
tho delightful task of kicking his fel
low men who were already down, but
this was expected. Haying read tho
short notice printed In The Journal
during tho campaign regarding the
services of Mr. W. T. Rlgdonu Mr.
aioorcs stated that that gentleman
had demonetized himself in tho past
campaign. Ho would now bo kept at
a parity and sold at his bullion value,
Tho editor of "an evening paper" was
a thousand miles from the "plo
countcr" and was separated from the
door or his ambition by hundreds
of his fellow politicians. Question at
Issue In tho lato campaign will never
bo revived. Tho overwhelming ma
jority for McKinloy would placo
a seal of denunciation on
documents advanced In Chicago plat-
iorm. "Debt of gratitude was owed
hundreds of thousands of gold Dem
ocrats who rallied around McKinley.
Thoy wcro true sincere and earnest
patriots." Hon. Tilmon Ford followed
with a short address. "Byran had an
nounced tho lato campaign of educa
tion and on examination dav Mhlnr
McKlnley graduated, while W. J.
Bryan for some reaso failed to reach
the required grade." Tiio blmctalllsts
were announcing the campaign of
education to continue four years
longer, this tiio speaker thought was
Just tho thing needed. Gen. W. II.
Odell followed In a short talk and tho
affair was closed with a tableau.
The Journal congratulates tho lo
cal managers on their earnest, aggres
sive and succcssfnl campaign. As tho
only silver paper in tho county, in
ract in Marlon and Polk nnd tnnnv
moro counties, The Journal made a
fight for what it believed was right
and has no npologics to olTcr. Tho
men it opposed wero opposed on ac
count of tho principles they repre
sented on tho money question, not be
cause they woro Republicans or for tho
part thoy took. Thoy have won and
aro entitled to tho fruits of their victory.
