What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

It 1s but an arm of the sea, orat best a tributary of the Columbia, asis Young's bay in Oregon. The state of Oregon opposed the granting of the petition. The’ state claimed that, in opposition to the ques- of Oregon was granted concurrent ju- risdiction over the waters of the Colum- bia by the enabling act passed by the United States congress upon its ad- mision into the Union. This is included in and was adopted as a part of the state’s organic laws in the constitution and is, after defining the boundaries of the state as follows: “Including ju- risdiction in civil and criminal cases upon the Columbia river and Snake river, concurrently with state and ter- ritories of which those rivers form a boundary in common with this state.” Also, in section 2 of the same act of congress occurs the following language: “The said state of Oregon shall have concurrent jurisdiction on the Columbia and all other rivers and waters border- ing on the said state of Oregon, so far as the same shall form a common boun- dary to said state, and any other state or states now or hereafter to be formed or bounded by the same.” It was claim- ed that the language is susceptible of but one construction, and that is that upon the admission of Oregon, it was granted this jurisdiction, and it was embodied in the state constitution, and the legislature of Oregon accepted and ratified the same on February 14, -18659. Thus the jurisdiction became @ com- pact between the United States and the state of Oregon, and, after this power had been once conferred upon the state of Oregon by the act of congress and accepted, it partakes of the nature of a compact, and Oregon cannot be di- vested of this power of jurisdiction without its express consent. Many authorities were submitted showing the application of the principle of concurrent jurisdiction -upon the Mississippi, St. Croix and Ohio rivers, where the states bordering upon the op- posite shores of the river have jurisdic- tion clauses similar to the one in the Oregon constitution. It was admitted that Washington under the acts above referred to, and the act admitting it, either has or is entitled to accept the concurrent jurisdiction to the Oregon shore, and, while it is contended that a refusal to accept such jurisdiction could not affect a prior grant of juris- diction to Oregon, Washington has not refused to accept the jurisdiction, but so far has merely failed, either by over- sight or otherwise, to uct. It was also claimed that a fish trap is not such a fixture as could in any manner modify the effect of the concurrent jurisdiction, but the limit of the concurrent jurisdic- tion is the north shore of the Columbia, which is specifically defined in the en- abling' act and the constitution. Concurrent jurisdiction, as referring to the claims of Oregon, seems to be a misnomer. Washington only claimed jurisdiction over half of the river, while it was urged that Oregon has jurisdic- tion over the whole river, and that, if Washington has a law conflicting with the laws of Oregon. and a citizen of Washington put this law in force on his own side of the river, he can be ar- rested by Oregon officers and punished for violating the laws of Oregon.

THE HOUSES ARE CRUMBLING Four to Eight Feet of Water Rose in the Town in a Few \e Silver City, N. M., July 23.—Between 8 o'clock and midnight Sunday night five inches of rain fell in this city and on the mountains to the north. 9 o’clock the water was rushing down the mountain sides in torrents, and a few minutes later the business streets of this city were filled with a flood from four to éight feet deep. The night was intensely dark and for thrge hours the people of the city were panic-stricker. Scores of people gave themselves up for lost, when some of the weaker buildings began to crumble before the destructive flood. Many bufidings are settling, and the amount of the loss may reach many ‘thousands of dollacs more than losses which are now certaim. Some ertimates place the loss as high as $300,000.

Dunbar, Pa.,. July 23.—Last night's flood and storm did great.damage. The Presbyterian parsonage was struck by lightning and partially destroyed. Many buildings were badly damaged. Tele- graph poles along the Baltimore & Ohio road were blown down, and the track between Dunbar and Uniontown washed out for over half a mile. The bridges over Dunbar creek are all swept away, separating the town. coke works in this section are flooded. The Ferguson mine is a total wreck. Many houses were swept away, but as far as known the occupants escaped to the mountains. A heavy hailstorm, which followed, worked destruction to business houses. In every part lar amounts.

D., days: the Pacific northwest are making inqui- ries relative to assessment work on their claims for the year 18%. The impression seems to generally prevail that the last sessment work on mining claims for the year 18%. This is not the case. The law to which the miners evidently refer and which has in some.cases misled them was passed in July, 18%, during the long ses- sion of the 534 congress, and was intended simply to tide unfortunate miners over the depression existing in that year. The special act im question provided for the suspension of the law requiring $100 worth of work to be performed or improvements made during each year. It specifically stated that the suspension was for the year 184, and no mention was made whatever of the year 1895. Since it is re- quired that such work shall be done by the ist of October of each year, and as congress will not be in session before that time, it stands all miners in good stead to see that their assessment is promptly done this year under the provisions of the old law, if they expect to hold their damaged by smut. The discovery was made by the Bik Valley Farming Com- pany, which has the largest acreage of any one farm in the country.
