This evening at the Christian church
the ladies of tbe society will give an ice
cream social. 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

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
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

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.
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
'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.
