Feb. raining experts announce the Barker and Neihart district at Great Falls, Mon- tana, to contain the greatest silver ore deposits ever discovered in this country. and will surpass the record of all previ- ous camps.

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. Willa- mette and Columbia riTers are now rag- ing torrents. Old residents are unani- mous in the declaration that nothing like the present flood has ever been seen here. Many of the buildings in the flooded portion of the city are frail, nearly all being of wood, and a number show signs of collapse. The entire population of that section has moved to higher quarters. All the merchants along the water front and for two streets back from the river hjvve been compelled to suspend business and move their stocks to higher ground. The water rose so rapidly that many of them were unable to move their goods, and in consequence heavy dam- age will result. Throughout tho Willa- mette valley heavy losses are reported. Many bridges have been washed away and a large amount of grain stored along the river has been ruined. The wagon bridge across the Willamette at Salem was swept away. It was feet long and cost Ten million feet ol logs have been swept away on the Will- amette and Columbia rivers in the Ias1 two days. Large quantities of sawec lumbar and a number of sawmills on the rivers have also been carried away. Southern Pacific officials do not ven ture an opinion as to when their road will be open west. All communication eouth and east of here has been cut of for five days and no trains have arrivet over the Southern or the Union Pacific Trains are running to Tacoma, Wash, over the Northern Pacific, but a heav; storm in the Cascade Mountains has cu off communication to the eist. It is im possible to closely estimate the damag at present, but it will probably reac half a million dollars. The rain has ceased throughout the Williamette va ley and the river at this point is at a standstill. The Oregonian and Telegram were compelled to move their business offices further back from the river, there being several feet of water on the first floor. The editorial rooms, which are on the second floor, are reached by boats. A dispatch from McMinville, Ore., states that the town of Wheatland is al- most swept away, much stock drowned Bridges have been carried away at Ore- gon City, and many small houses built near the river were washed away. Com- munication with Salem and Oregon City is very uncertain and the full extent eft the damage done at these points is matter of conjecture.

Mr. Blair gave Citations to prove that illiteracy was increasing In the United States.
