The Dalles Daily Chronicle.
FRIDAY, DEC. 26, 1890 LOCAL BREVITIES H . H. Sutcliffe, of Goldendale, ia in the city. It 5a reported that , there are to be several marriages in high life in the near future. There were Christmas religious ser vices in the Episcopal and Catholic churches yesterday. Rev. G. H. Hutchinson, late pastor of The Dalles Presbyterian church spent Christmas in the city. Our subscription list is increasing very rapidly, for which our friends will please accept our thanks. Yesterday was certainly a "green Christmas" the hills being covered with verdure, and the thermometer standing placidly at 56 above. Hon. D. J. Cooper, XT. S. swamp land commissioner, arrived home to-day by the delayed train from the East, where he has been on official business since July last. Mr. Otto Kohlu, of Kohlu & Carlin, great sheep men of the Bake Oven dis trict, was in the city yesterday. He re ports stock in excellent condition but if the country could get more rain the fanning interests and grass would be benefitted. Yesterday, Christmas, was the most lovely, perfect day' on record in this locality, beiug clear and bright, with a maximum temperature of 56 deg. and a minimuiu temperature of 39 deg. Bees were out on the wing, and birds were singing as cheerily as in spring-time. A crate of demijohns was received by Mr. Alloway this morning, all empty. They were not intended as a Christmas present but will each be filled with water from the railroad tanks, and sent back to Omaha for analysis, so that the effee't of the water on the boilers can be de termined. We understand petitions are being circulated in Sherman and "Wasco coun ties asking the incoming legislature to repeal that evil, the mortgage tax law, which is cursing our statutes and fair state. Thia is a move in the right direc tion and should be signed by everybody throughout our borders. We would call the attention of the readers of the Chronicle to the home market report which appears in this issue. It will be furnished every week corrected to date, and will be one of the epeeial feature of this paper. It is pre pared by one of our most reliable mer chants and can always be depended upon for accuracy and honesty of state ment. We print., in thia issue a petition to the legislature which will be presented at its next session, asking for an appro priation of $10,000 for the purpose of building a wagon road over the Tygh hill. The road ia badly needed, is too expensive for the county to undertake, jUnd as it is used by residents of other tounties as a thoroughfare, it is emi iently proper that the state should assist in building it. The Christmas tree of the A. O. U, W. at K. of P. hall Christmas night was one of the most pleasant affairs of the kind of tde year. The Christmas tree was a aplendid big fellow, and loaded with fruit. The hall was crowded to its utmost capacity and everpbody was in that particularly happy frame of mind which Christmas and the knowledge of making others happy always brings. Col. Nevius made a short bus interesting little talk expatiating on the "good of the order" and urging the ladiea to work enegetically for it, as its objects was principally to provide for them. After the' presents are1 distributed, a grab bag decided the ownership of a doll and a drum, presented by the lodge, a daughter of Paul Kreft getting the former and Master D. E. Fisher the lat ter. W. S. Myers received a magnifi cent squash, and several of the mem bers, dolls.. One of them got two but which one deponent sayeth not, Married. In this city by Rev. W. E.

The East India tea industry is being developed at a wonderfully rapid rate, The season's crop is estimated to be ll.OoO.OOO pounds. About 1,000,000 pounds of glueose is being turned out a day, principally in cities in the west. This is largely used In candies and no secret is made of the fact. A drunken man in New York shouted for Jay Gould and was sent to the hos pital. Both he and money were tight. Begin the new year with a resolution to be more progressive during 1891 than ver before. Wanted A boy who is a rustler, at 62 Second street. A good position for the right person. A PETITION. To the Coming Session of the Legislature for Help on the Tygli Mountain Road. We, the undersigned would respect fully represent to your Honorable body that we are resident citizens of the State of Oregon, and have personal knowledge of the facts hereinafter mentioned. That the only wagon road leading from Oregon City, in Clackamas county and Portland in Multnomah county, to The Dalles, in Wasco county, passes over what ia known as Tygh mountain, about twenty-seven miles south of - The Dalles, and between The Dalles, and Tygh Valley ; that the grade up said mountain as heretofore laid out, and used, ia very steep, narrow and difficult to travel ; and in places passes over ledges of rocks and boulders, so much so that it ia extremely dangerous in going' down the grade and impossible for loaded teams to go up the grade at all. Several persons have already been killed by their teams getting off from said old grade, in going down said mountain, their horses killed or crippled and their wagons and freight broken to pieces and ruined. Said road is the most direct, and ex cept as to that part of it passing over said Tygh mountain, is much the easiest and most feasible route from The Dalles to Prineville and the tributary country, and if a good grade was constructed over said mountain, it would shorten the distance between said places about 25 miles and be of great public benefit and utility and of especial importance to the people of Clac'kamas, Multnomah, Wasco, Crook Sherman and other coun ties in eastern Oregon. That during the summer of 1890 the the county court of Wasco comnty, di rected a view and survey across said mountain divide, and on a route which follows up a long canon to the west of said old grade, and the viewers ap pointed to make such examination and view with the county surveyor, reported that a good, safe and easy grade could be made on the new route that would enable heavily loaded teams to pass eas ily and safely over, bofh ways, but in the opinion of competient judges it would cost $10,000 to construct such grade, and that a good grade could be constructed for said sum. That for several miles along said old grade and said proposed new. grade the country is unsettled and the cost of building said new grade renders it im possible for any road district to build the same, and the county of Wasco is hardly able to undertake, alone, the construction of said new grade at so great an expense ; and also in view of the fact that the people of several coun ties are directly interested in a good road over said mountain. Wherefore your petitioners pray your Honorable Body to appropriate the sum of $10,000 from the state funds', to be used in the construction of the proposed new grade'over said Tygh moantain. An Attempt at Suicide. Henry Deerhake is lying in one of the rooms over Skibbe's restaurant with a bullet hole in his right breast, and a pistol bullet lodged, probably near his backbone. The wound was self inflicted and while he claims the shooting wa9 accidental, all the circumstances sur rounding the case force one to the con clusion that it was suicidal. He had an eight-horse team loaded with freight for Prineville, but it is said indulged in Christmas festivities which included gambling, rather more than he ought to have done. His team was at Brooks & Beers,' and about 4 :00 o'clock Wednes day evening he entered their store and asked Mr. Beers if he had fed the team. Mr. Beers told him, that as he had not made his appearance in the morning, he had the team fed at 9 :00 o'clock, Deer hake asked him if he could have them fed again that night to which Mr. Beers made some remark about taking care of it himself instead of running around, but upon Deerhake insisting told him he would have the team taken care of Deerhaker went out, but stopped in the door and said, "The team is good for its feed isn't it?" Mr. Beers told him it was and he went out aud around to the corral. Between 4 and 5 o'clock Mr. Beers and another man went out to feed the team. Mr. Beers thought he heard a groan, but not seeing anyone paid no attention to it. Hearing it again he looked under the shed at the near end of the building, and seeing some object (it was getting quite dark) examined it to find that it was Deer hake. To his inquiries Deerhake at first made no reply, but finally said, "I have shot myself." Mr. Beers went after a light and Mr. Williams, the firm bookkeeper, went after a doctor. Being asked if ijt was an accident he made no reply but finally said: "I was taking the pistol from my vest. -I had it in my hand." His coat is powder burned and shows that the shot was fired from the out side of it, and contradicts his story of taking it from his vest. The bullet entered about an inch below and the same distance back of the right nipple. Mr. Beers found the pistol empty, and Durhaker told him he fired the balance of the shots through the roof of the shed, which he did as four bullet holes are visible. The wound is a daugeroua one the chances of his recovery being very slim. Messrs Brooks & Beers had his wagons unloaded at such places as the goods are shipped from. Hia conversation indicates very clearly that it was an attempt at suicide, and one that will in all probability be successful. For coughs and colds use 2379. Lots' at North Dalles at acre price.

A young man of about S3 is just now the hero of a select circle of friends in the southern section of the city, and in view of his peculiar history he quite de serves to he lionized. Five years ago he was a clerk in a bank on a meager sal ary, and one time some of the same de voted friends of these days thought it would be a good joke to pretend, the bank had been robbed, and warn ; Viim that he was suspected. This a number did, only they called him up about mid night, so as to give the joke a more natural appearance. After telling rm that two hoars before burglars had stolen $50,000 in bank notes, they added that the police were now on the way to arrest him as a suspect. It so happened that he had bat two hoars before been in the vicinity of the bank, and fearful of not being able to prove an alibi, he gathered his available belongings together and canght an early morning train for the north. Of course there was a big row in the vicinity of the young fellow's home and his fanny friends had to leave town. Fortunately the young fellow was a bachelor, and he was not hunted np. Recently he wrote to an old acquaintance here from Can ada, and the latter in replying to the long lost youth told him the truth about the bank joke. - Then the young fellow came .back, bat not as he went away. He rode in a parlor car and swelled around in a hack. He had gone to Mon treal and after the first shock had settled down to work and gradually by lucky speculation had grown rich. Philadel phia XkMroirer. . - - Cranes in the Crimea. Same interesting results were obtained from the archaeological explorations car ried on in the Crimea daring last Bum mer. Professor VeseelovBld found paisifc ed Iranian bones in two graves six skel etons in one grave and oneTh another. The well known archaeologist Professor Grempler, of Breslan, who was present last year at the congress of archaeolo gists at Moscow, is of opinion that these graves belonged to the original inhabi tants of the Crimea, the Cimmerians of Herodotus. It was a usage with them to lay their dead on elevated spots so that the birds might consume the flesh. When quite bleached they painted the skeletons with some mineral pigment. U-ravescontaining such painted-skeletons have been found m Central Atria, bat only in a few instances. Only three such graves had been previously found in the Crimea. Professor Grempler proposes to take the skeletons with him to Paris, and exhibit them at the congress of an thropologists to be held there daring the autumn. Boston Transcript.

It is said to be horribly fascinating, and the salon where it is displayed is crowded to suffocation.
