The robbers, after rinding the till looked, proceeded to yank It open, and fortunately for the roprletora, there were but about 12 n it, wklch were taken. A Collision. Tuesday morning at bout 7 o'olock, jutt aa the atesmera Telephone aad Northweit were leav ing Portland, an accident occurred which caused the Telephone to be sev eral hours late and the Northwest to be laid up for repairs. The fog wss very thick, and the Northweit ruthed down upon the Telephone jutt as the latter steamer wat about to go through the draw of the Burnaide street bridge. Upon seeing the danger the oaptaiu of the Northweat attempted to avert any ditater by pasting the Telephone, but ,a no uoceed in entirely clearing her.

The seo lions for one pair and a part of an' other are on the ground, and it is the Intention to get the nrst pair erected in time to shut the June flood out of the csnal, ao that the work need not be interrupted by it. ' If the rie is very great It will, of course, Anally overflow the gates, but ft is hoped there will not be a great flood this year, and that there may not be any interruption to the work. The water at the Cascade Is lower now than it has been for a lone time, and advant age is being taken of thia to complete the aide walls of the canal below the lowsr gate, whioh are 160 feet in length, and elo the upper end of the wall, which together form, tne lour corners of the canal Thr Ooblr Road a Go. Portland Sun.. Wednesday I Word is reoeived that the negotiation of the bond of the Aatoria A Ooble railroad has been suc cessful and ampls funds provided for the building of the road. It ia not definitely underatood, however, wheth er this csrries with it the improvement fad extension of the Oregon Faoino road, purchased by Bonner A Ham mond, but it is a reasonable supposi tion that such is the case, a these gentlemen are pushers on anything rther undertake. Messrs. Bonner i Hammond are expected to leave Mon tanna within a few days for Portland with a corps of engineers, and will es tablish their headquarter In Astoria, according to the terms of the con tract, and will no doubt eommenoe work by the flrat of April, as required by their oontraot, Thia mean the disbursement of large sums of money in Oregon, and will, no doubt, be of great benefit to toe whole state. Thr Whrat Aphis. Considerable baa been aald by farmers In aome lo calities of the atate about the presence of the wheat aphia already. Mr. A. W. Bond, of Irving, one ol the farmer who haa disputed the presence of the pest, now acknowledges that it ia here, and in large numbers. While plowing on bis fsrm in Lane county, he occa sionally turned over a small bunob ol mold, and upon investigation found that the aphia waa there, often a hun dred or more in a bunch. Tbey are down In the ground to a depth of eight or ten inobea, and are wintering nioely and will be out as soon aa the warm weather eomee, and it is feared they will do a great deal ot damage to the grain this tea ton. Laat season tbsy did considerable damage, though they did not appear nntil the grain waa well advanoed in growth. Divrrsipiro Prihciplr The Chief in 1892 supported the populist ticket, and in consideration thereior a great many populiita in the county sub scribed for that paper, which took pleasure in publithiug tho list of new populitt subscribers it had received each week. While Thr Mist wasetrug- gling for the Dtinoiple of the republi can party, aa Its editor uoaerstooo them, the Chief waa courting populism and did all in Its power (which wss not much) to aid that party to carry the election, and whether through the Influence of the Chief or not that party waa partially successful, much to the loss of the county. But alaal the Sen tinel appeared on the acene and popu list subscribers were low in coming in, so that the chump who murders grammar tor the Chief ia not happy. Thrir Pa CeniAoatee wore drawn and ii lined bv the sneaker of the house on Wednesday, February 20, for the amounta to which the aeveral mem bera are declared to be entitled to a per diem and milage for attendance at thia legislative aeselon, and lor acting on committees to investigate the sev eral state institutions, fisheries, public works, eto. The regular psy ia 93 day lor forty days, and 10 cents per mile to and from the capital. Mem bera of iunkerting committees are also entitled to mileage, so that some of the members received quite a little sum outside of their regular pay. The total amount covered by these certifi cates is 111,804. Hard to Drciphrr. There is a war ranty deed in the oounty oletk'a office which is about to get the beat of the olerka. It ia worded in Italian, and is accompanied by another document of interpretation in English. The spell ing is in the native Italian style of or thography, and the peculiar formation of the letters, even though they are English, are very hard to deolpher. Mr. Harris is of the opinion that Co lumbia county will be the loser on that undertaking, aa it requires an Interpre ter of anoient hieroglyphics to deci pher it. Annual School Mrrtino. Monday evening next the people of this school district (No. 2) will be called upon to choose for the ensuing year, the gen tlemen in wboae hands we are to place the deatiny of our publio inalitution, and in doing ao the people ahould look further than to the mere fact that the offices are filled.

The plank, walk betweeu this city and Houlton it progressing nicely. The planks are laid more than half the way and the lumber ia distributed about three fourths of the dittance, so that in a hort time the entire distance will be spanned with a double walk, while nerhina too far apart for young rollts older ones can wilk with comfort Look Aitrr It. The attention of the oily council ia directed to the con' dition of the sewer on the north side of the street opposite the old Banquet saloon. Warm weather Is approach Ing and If the thing ia allowed to re main aa it ia now no telling what di sease is liable to result from it. Eastrrn Grry Squirrrl. Wednes day, Jos Eversol captured an eastern grey squirrel while out hunting just outside of town, the first one we have ever heard of being seen in this part of Oregon. It wis sn extraordinary large one, and according to Joe's state ment it was hard to tell which one of the two came nearest being taken In, Dats Unorrtaiv. A telegram was sent from this place to Senator-elect MoBrids Isst Tuesdsy aaking when he could meet the people of St. Helens In a publio reception, whioh wss replied to stating that he could not designate a day when he could be here.

Msnv of the boys and men about town are engaged in fishing for sturgeon, which at the pressnt time seems to be rather a In cretive occupation.

The former have been running in the river below here for several days, but on Sunday it was noticed that thous ands of sea gulls were feeding on the running fish opposite this place, and the air waa filled with the flitting birds and their screams, franlio ia their efforts to catch a fish.

In about a month the citisens of St. Helens will be in the throes of a city election, and it may not be out of place to say that it ia every citixeo'a duty to take a hand in this affair and see that the men who 1.7. nMn'!!!!l;?r.? f 'h.9 !fh1rWlter BUke.ley and Henry Rung 5fl?f JESSS Vk1 "llinoceededin capturing about a Ion of VIV 14 piltlVUWIt 1U SI CWU vf oeunoil have performed the functions of that body creditably, and the people Should see to it that their successors be men ot equally public apirited Ideasj11 flM "a and business capacity.

A ease of smallpox has developed at The Dalles in the person of 8. Monahan, who has been in charge of the feedyard, near the old mint building, for aome time.

While most of us are congratulating ourselves upon living in ao mild and desirable climate aa we have bad the past few weeks, others are wondering how the thing will pan oat before the summer is over. There is undoubtedly, but little snow in the mountains, and we are informed by one gentleman that in the moun tains at one point where he is familiar with the usual conditions, that there ia now only a few inches, of snow where generally at this time of year there are several feet. The storage of snow in the mountains aott aa a reservoir in the summer, and the gradual melting of the anow keepa the streams well supplied, but this year there ia a lack of supply from this source, and there is a likelihood that a dry aummer will be experienced. However, it ia not yet time to worry, and what we lack in the way of rain now may be made up in the early summer. PEBSOHAL AND GENERAL.. For dry goods; Dolman's. For groceries j Dolmsn's.
