A splendid program has been prepared, and all may have a good time by attending. Dr. Locke, formerly pastor of the Taylor street church in Portland, bnt for over a year pastor of Central church in San Francieco, has been called to a church in one of the largest cities in New York, and nill probably leave for that place in a few weeks. Nothing definite has been heard re garding the rumor thatthe O.R.& N.will put an opposition boat on the river ae soon as the river recedes sufficient to ad mit of passing through the locks. Call at the lawn of the Congregational church tonight and let tbe Junior En deavorers serve you with a plate of ice cream. It will cost but ten cents, and assist in' helping along the babies' home of Portland. The workmen were somewhat delayed in getting the Oregon Telephone line into Antelope, but last night the wire was stretched as far as that little city and we can now talk to our friends there over that line. A patriotic service will be held by the Christian Endeavor Society of the Christian church next Sunday evening at 8 o'clock. Addreeses, song?, etc., ap propriate for tho occasion will be given, and the general public are cordially in vited to attend. It has been thought advisable to make the dining room of the hotel as attractive as possible on the morning of the arrival of the editors. Therefore all ladies who will donate flowers (choice ones) for this purpose are requested to leave them at tfieUoaatiUa House Monday evening. Sheriff Kelly arrived on yesterday's afternoon train from Sumpter. He had in charge-Joseph .Ganterman, who was arrested for obtaining money under false pretense, having passed a bogus check at Chas. Frank's . saloon some months since. He had a hearing before Justice Bayard this afternoon and .was bound over in the sum of (500. At tbe time the volunteers left for the Philippines, Third regiment O. N. G., was disrupted and as far as the regiment is concerned, was a thing of the past. The adjutant-general has now placed on the retired or veteran list its officers, among whom are J. M. Patterson, of Wasco, j A. Varney, formerly of The' Dalles, and H. H. Riddell, of this city. The state military board is consider ing tbe advisability of making the day of the arrival of the volunteers a etate holiday. When the date of their ar rival is definitely known, a meet ing will be held and a decision arrived at regarding the matter. This, will be tbe best of news to those who have been scheming to get away from business duties cn that day. It may be a fact that the race of "noble red men" is diminishing rapid ly ; bnt one would never judge such to be the case by looking around the streets of The Dalles the past few days. The town is fairly "painted red" with their presence, and if all the small pappooses which are so much in'evidence at present, shy clear of the happy bunting grounds there'll be enough of the race left to fill tbe reservations for some time to come. A local reporter on one of our neigh boring papers got into trouble last Thursday by making the wrong heading to an account of the marriage of a couple in his vicinity. Tbe man's name is Avery and the lady was a M'ss Small, and the local scribe made the heading read, "A very-Small Wedding," The groom, who is a strapping country youth, went after the reporter to wipe the earth with him for saying it was a very small wedding. A letter received by friends in this city tells of the appointment of Frank Newcome as clerk of the Park hotel at Mt. Clemens, the finest hotel in the state of Michigan. Many will remember Mr. Newcome well, he having spent some time in The Dalles and was for many years a resident of Wasco county, having stock interests with his brothers near Ridge way. As Mt. Clemens is a health resort it will be just tbe place for Mr. Newcome, whose health was much impaired when he iast visited this city. During the entire season Astoria has evidently been catching all the salmon in tbe river. At any rate eomebody has been en ticing the succors into their traps, seines, or whatever they may be, for none of them have succeeded in making their appearance in the wheels at The Dalles. In vain have the fisher men here sept their wheels running, for very few have condescended to give us even a passing glance. At Astoria Wednesday tbe fishermen came np from the lower river loaded with fish, and steel head a conti sue to increase. Fvery once in awhile the people of Oregon, who are E0.6itnated that they have a good view of Mt. Hood, imagine that mountain has again taken up the bad babit of smoking, and declare they saw a column ot emoke iesuing from it However, Mt. Adams is seldom accused of a like offense ; but this morning many residents of this city were attracted to a column of emoke around the summit, which seemed to be curling around just as if coming from it. As there certainly can be no forest. firea,at present to cause it there was quite a little speculation as to what it was. There 13 no mistake but that tbe em ployes at the laundry will have an op portunity of celebrating on the Fourth A few mornings since when Mr. Mac Allister eat down at his desk in that establishment a document met his gaze which upon inspection proved to be "round robin." It was a petition from the employes for a cessation of duties on our nation's oirtticlay, which was so worded that it could not fail to accom plisb the end desired. The names be ing signed in a circle it was impossible to tell who was tbe promoter of the scneme. jno uouot tne manager in tended they should celebrate any way but this settled tbe matter. You cannot enter the Umatilla House now without being greeted by the sweet strains of music; not the "old songs' either, but the very latest airs. 'Tis not the musical voice of Jod, for fish don sing; nor the baritone of tbe genial clerk, for Rog at present has something else to think about. If the night clerk's name were spelled with P, instead of B, one might think it is Patty; neither can it be Patricio McNeal for there are no Irish airs put on. Tbe strains emi nate3 from the bar room, wbere is placed an automatic music box bought from Jacobsen this morning. It is one of a superior make and is worked somewhat on the plan of a nickel-in-the-elot ma chine. It will play any number of airs without changing tbe discs, the indi cator controlling the machine aud tbe tunes, it plays. It is not only a fine musical instrument, but a nice looking piece of furniture. Dr. Siddall THE WHOLE JEKprctses Ills gercllng Atlin TRUTH- Opinion Be The Chronicle felt sure when Dr. Siddall left The Dalles for Atlin that we would learn the truth regarding . the ! prospects there, and we were not de ceived, for he has not been afraid to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. With the testimony from snch men as Dr. Siddall and Leslie Butler, who were never afraid to exreBS their sentiments on any subjects, surely Dalles people, or any who read their opinions of Atlin would never dream of investing in such a fake mining district. Yesterday's Oregonian contained a letter from the doctor, and among other things he said: 'This place is really dead ; it was awfully overestimated. Instead of be ing shallow, from one to four feet deep, with pay from the grass roots down to bedrock, and eaBily worked, it is very deep, wet and hard, if not impossible to work, with a very few exceptions. Some would eay it is purely a hydraulic prop osition, but even for that the water is too scarce and the fall not sufficient for profitable work, and most of the few claims that might be worked are tied up by jumpers. It is nothing to see six or eight stakes on each claim, and this miserable slack government don't in tend to have a jndge np here to settle the disputes before some time in July, and they cause the whole trouble them selves by not having a proper gold com missioner here with' a set of books, miners' licenses, and able to give re ceipts for tbe money they received for recording, etc. They had plenty of time to do so if they had any get-up to them. ust as much so, as the miners who came in here last August, ana are now in trouble through the negligence of a few azy, indclent officials, who never miss the least chance to grab and hog the last cent they can get their fingers on, which they manage to do in a thousand and one ways, and would take a good-sized book to itemize. 'Now, just a word about business and labor. Everything is overdone, al thongbt the merchants have held every thing very high. I landed here the 10th of May and found flour selling at ?8 50 per sack; bacon, 35 to 40 cents per pound ; sugar tbe same, and everything else in proportion ; hay, $26 a ton ; lum ber, $125 to $150 per 1000. Provisions are coming down a little, as we are ex pecting the boats in. Wages were $10 per .day, but they are now $4 and $5, and ninny who cannot get an hour's work are getting short of provisions and can not get out of the country. The future looks very gloomy indeed for many a good man who was misguided." In writing to Mr. MacAlliater he ex pressed the same statements, and also said that people were leaving as fast as possible, but many poor men who could not rake up the $20 which it costs to get from Atlin to Lake Bennett, were com pelled to remain. PERSONAL MENTION. Glacier and learn that he is nothing but ! a tramp. You bet he'll pay for his bed before he occupies it." When the "tramp" came round to turn in he found a lamp burning in his room, but he had to ante np the price of the bed before he went up stairs. no:d River Glacier. The Modern Beauty.
