The water doing the damage, the railway officials say, came from "he government irrigating canal, but whether this canal burst, or merely overflowed as a result of the heavy rains, cannot be found o it, as the water lies deeply all over a large area of the country. Iho washout at Floriston was slight, as to area, but the water was so c'-ieidy backed up by the Flris toa CE.111 that the work of repairing it cot Id not be commenced till after the 0:1m had been blown out l y charges of dynamite. When this had been done the water was quickly drained and the work of relaying the washed out track was soon accomplished. More delay than was expected arose in other work made necessary by the sorm, but by three o'clock yes.ercay afternoon all delayed trains on the other side of the summit were in n.cticn.

THE DOUGLASS LIBRARY BILL TABLED AFTER EXCITING CONTEST The long drawn contest between the becrelar' ot fctate and the Supreme Court over the library management caused a scare in the House yostor day. This fight had overshadowed every thing of the session. The Supreme Court were desirous, of having some thing to say in regard to the manage ment of the new Law library and the Secretary of State regarded this as encroaching upon his patronage. He opened a fight upon the bill which gave the Supreme Court anything to say regarding the law library and in turn introduced a bill which placed fill tlii iiriT i'n n n cm 1 ti Vii li 1 n A c? mis uni passed tne republican Sen ate, where it was regarded as a party measure and yesterday came up in the House.

There was a silence when the Chair asked ihe clerk to read the next bill. A Republican rose to ask what had become of the Library bill. "On the table," said the Chair. "Then I move we take it up at once." said a republican. "t will require a two thirds vote under the rule, to take it up out of order, was the bland response.
