They are still boring . for natural gas at fjle-elum. Mr. A. O'Toole, of Cascade Locks, is the city. 0. D. Taylor, of this city, was in Port land last Monday.- - Mr. H. C. Rooper, of Bakeoven, gave us a pleasant call to-day. The artesian well at Pasco ia down COO , fret, and no indication of the aqueous ele ment. The Pacific Express office has received a fresh coat of paint from the artistic brush of Mr. P. Kreft. A "Humbug" sociable was held at Baker City recently Perhaps the name has a general significance. Lieut. Burr, returned last Saturday to the Locks from San Francisco, where he has been for several months past. The mossbacks of Olympia haye become sufficiently modernized to begin a street railway. There is hope for The Dalles yet. Baker City is the first town in Eastern Oregon to have street cars. It has only about half the population of Xbe Dalles. The latest industry in Ellensburgh is the erection of a mammoth ice bouse. The ice will be put np principally for the Sound trade. A report is current that two inches of snow fell in Prineville yesterday morn in?. We will not vouch for the truth of this rumor. The grand jury, in the case of State vs. Martin, for killing Dick Edwards, brought in yesterday a verdict of murder in the second degree. Leah Harnett is "writing up" the Blue River mines in Lane county. The professor always makes the last place yisited better tban tbe one seen before. Dannie and Barnie, at Alex. O'Toole s at the Locks, are enjoying tbeir usual good bealtn, and keeping bouse while Mr. O'Toole is visiting friends in this city. Three days in tbe Big Bend country cured two Herman girls of any intatuation for the northwest. Tbey shosM have come to i be Dalles and grown up with tbe coun try. A ghostly apparition has been annoying the fishermen around Astoria, we Icarn from the Pioneer, and they have formed a vigi lance committee to test ihe spirituality of the unknown visitor. Mr. C. L. Phillips moved his soda works machinery to his new building on Third street to-day. Mr. P. has no informed us whether he - will invite his friends to a "house-warming" soon.' A boom has struck Taqnina Bay by rea son of the Oregon Pacific Co. signifying its intention of building a commodious hotel there. Property has advanced double dur ing the paat few weeks. The Guaranty Building and Loan Asso ciation is on a different plan regarding lotus from the American. No bids are necessary for these, and the association is on as firm financial basis as any in tbe country. The "hospital system" will soon be intro duced on the O. ft. & N., whereby every employe will contribute 40 cents a month for hospital dues, the money to be used in paying expenses of sick and injured fellow railroaders. Baker City is the last bidder for the Hunt system of railroads. Tbe limit is becoming narrowed down year by year, and it is only question of time when the Northern Pa cific will make nearly all of Eastern Oregon tributary to the Sound. Tbe Albany Herald says laborers are be ing conveyed to the front by every train to work on the extension of the Oregon Pacific eastward, and railroad men express the be lief that work can be prosecuted all winter almost without cessation. The Missmdian is reliably informed that in about three weeks the laying of track will be commenced on the Cceur d'Alene branch of the Northern Pacifio. For nearly twenty-five miles from the main line by , that time the grade will be completed. Waitsburg Times: Barney Wickersham, bridge hand, fell from the top of the Hunt bridge across the Coppei Saturday, break ing his nose and badly injuring his back. Dr. Johnson attended to bis immediate wants and sent him to the hospital at Walla Walls. Baker BevciUe: We learn that quite a number of cattle, mostly yearling, have been killed recently by 'dogs between this city and Wingyille. Our informant says the bodies are badly mangled as if by wolves the throat being cut in almost every instance. Baker City Democrat, 10th inst: The news is received here that on last Friday at VVete- City, Idaho, a young man by tbe name of Joi n Grabb was shot and killed in front of the Palace saloon, owned by his father, by a gambler, whosj name could not be learnt d. Vale Allot: Michael Walsh, living on the sooth fork ot Willow creek, was arraigned before Justice Bradley at Malheur City last Saturd.-ty, charged with killing cattle owned by J. Rose. The evidence was so strong that tbe jadje bound bim in $300 which was furnished. East Oregonian: Thomas Jeter, an 0. R. & H. brukeuiar, got his hand between the bumbers while coupling cars at the depot early Sunday morning, and bis thumb was severely cruel ed, necessitating amputation. Dr. Vincent, company physician, performed the operation. The tread-mill wood-sawing machine was stopped to-day by Deputy-Sher.JT Gates, and the owner informed without he used strong, well-fed horses, he would be arrested for cruelty to animals. The humane senti ments ot the deputy are worthy of the highest commendation. Jiast Oregonian: Over 300 head of cattle have been ronnded np on the reservation by the Indian police. This week a grand round-up of horses will take placo. Uncle Sam's edict that the green grass on the reservation a hail giosr for tbe Indian alone, is being strictly enforced. The two-horse tread-mill sawing machine got in operation this morning on the corner of Second and Court, after vainly trying last evening. It is death on horses and is a sort of by-gone relic of barbarism. No one bnt an Apache Indian should be allowed to work in such a machine. Prineville News: Some three weeks ago snow fell to the depth of several inches on the high mountains in this county, but now it is nearly all gone again. The copious fall rains we have so far bad, and the snow on the higher hills insure us a better supply of water than we had dared to hope for. Mr. Frank Menefee and wife nee Du fur arrived in the city from Cleone, near Poit-land,- Sunday night. Mr. Menefee has been in the office of Color & V atkins for years past, and was admitted to the supreme court last month. He will makfl The Dalles his future home and practice bis profession in this city. Ellenaburgb State Register: Johnny Jack son, son of O. V. Jackson of the "ilorton" met with a painful accident this morning. He was out hunting aud bis ride being acoi dently disch trged tbe bail passed through his foot. Dr. Newland who is atfcndiug bim is of the opinion that no serious result will follow. The scconnt published Monday from the Ashland Tidings of the capture of Gibbs jseema to have been correct. A photograph of the prisoner has been sent to Portland, and be has been identified by several who knew bim, Jjejtuty Hoxie left t--day for Yreka, CaL, where he if Jodged in jtjl, to bring Gibbs to Portland. B O.i Tbe Indian school will be remove ! to Pendleton on the 15tb, waen forty ds;k skinned girls and boys the majority of whom have tbe blood of the pale-face as well as tbe Indian coursiogttlirough their veins will be among us, and the pupils ot tbe Pendleton Academy will have some in teresting playmates at reeess and noon. The Oregonian remarks that tbe Linn county business council, Patrons ot Hus bandry, are taking a praiseworthy interest jn their bi other farmers of Wasco county who were Is) it in straightened circumstances by the partial failure ot the wheat crop last season, lion. H A. Irvine was delegated to visit Wasco county and inquire into the necessities of the farmers in that section. Eli Perkins has a successful rival in the editor of the Milton Eagle. Hear him: "Col. Parker, of Walla Walla, while on the road, recently, left the car at Pasco to get a glimpse of the elephant. He was immedi ately beset by a multitude of hobos, each clamoring for what we all want most. The colonel, finding there was no escape, threw bandtul ot gold among tnem, ana tnen neb stand ana nougnc crackers and oologoa, and ate bis fill in peace, The latest capture of Gibbs comes from Baker City, and we quote the following from the Democrat of the 10th mst: "Ke- liable news was received in this city last night that the negro, Gibbs, the murderer of yonng McUevitt, in rortland, was cap- tured yesterday about noon on tne road leading from Big Creek to Lower Powder, about 20 miles from this city, by Ed Turner, a farmer of that section. Turner took his charge to Union. It is said the description of the man arrested tallies exactly with that of Gibbs and there can be no question of his identity." News: Collet Biiyeu tells us of the dis covery of a vein of coal in the mountains some six or seven miles west of the Ouhoco gold mines. While he and his brother were hunting there last week, they accidentally discovered traces of coal where a tree had been norooted, and upon prospecting dis covered a three-inch vein of the product. Mr. Biiyeu brought samples to town which were thoroughly tested by our blacksmiths, and pronounced first-class for their pur poses. How extensiye the find may prove to be is not known, but Mr. Bilveu says he intends to further develop the find, and if need be, capital can readily be found to assist him. An easily worked coal mine in or near this place is a matter of no small value, aB might at first appear. Of course the local demand is all that could be sup plied, but men, that would pay well for de veloping ths mine. There is an old rooster in McMinnville who has got into the habit of proposing to the girls of that town, and bas made an un mitigated nuisance ot uimaeir, says tne West Side. He called on a fair damsel one day last week and poured his soul into her unwilling ear, declaring that t'were better be were dead than to live without her: he then invited her, in a cracked voice, to be come tbe companion of bis declining years; the partner of his joys and sorrows, etc., etc. She wanted none ot bim. However, and Bbe went out and got several of her chums. Together they tied the aged swain to a bed post and whaled him with a mop; then they combed his hair with a rake, put treacle and apple jack on his old bald head and down his neck and played the hose on him. He is now seeking tbe aid of the law for protection against the ire of the festive McMinnville girl. From Thursday's Ihuly. Turkeys are ' being fattened for Thanks giving. Mrs. J. L. Fisher is visiting her parents at Center ville, Wash. Snow covers the ground from Baker City within ten miles of Pendleton. Mr. R. Snodgrass, of Boyd, gave us a call to-day. He reports everything flourish ing in his viuiuity. The most emphatic invitation to the Clii nee to "go" is the steam wood-sawing ma chine now iu operation. What will the winter be? is the anxious inquiry of eyery farmer, and even the old est inhabitant is silent. Mr. John Lewis and brother, Llewellyan, left town yesterday on a goose and duck hunt sythyiocfioieti a gwjddyan. Snow at Baker and La Grande, weather spring like and Da I my at ihe Ualles, witn summer flowers and roses in bloom. W e have never seen tbe farmers as hope ful as tbey are this fall. They say the sea son is more favorable than for several years pant. Some of our sidewalks are sadly in need of repairs. A nail or so now may save an expensive law suit to the city or property owner. The grand jury are C. C. Hobart, fore man, J. 11. Alcuonougn, uenrgc finoon, Grant .Ashbv, W. A. Obar, E. A. Griffin, and Isaac Driver. The Chinamen must go. The steam saw ing machine reduces the wages of Mongolian. Yankee ingenuity can drive the Mongolian out of the country without legislative action, and this is the only way it can be done. In the progress of the city old landmarks are being constantly removed, and a resi dent of The Dalles a few years ago would not recognize the place now. Very few of the old buildings of twenty years ago re main. The climate of The Dalles excels any in Oregon. The summers are not warm, nor the winters cold. W hi!e snow lays on the ground in tho Grand Round valley, this portion of the state is enjoying the most delightful weather. A novel race between one of our aborig inees and a native of tbe Celestial empire will take place at Armory hall Friday and Saturday evenings, between the hours of 9 and 10 o'clock. A purse of $5 will be awarded to tbe winner. The Handsome enp now on exhibition in window of Mr. IS. Beck's jewelry store is supposed to be for the most popular othcer of the 0. N. G. in this city. It is an ele egant goblet, and we understand will be voted on at the coming Catholic fair. A former speaker of the legislature of New Jersey now drives a street car in New York city. The mutation of politics are so frequent in this conntiy that it will he no matter of surprise if some car-drivers will not be in the future speakers of legislatures. The steam sawing machine finished the pile of wood to-day that the treadmill bad to give up yesterday. The steam machiug does not kill animals only of the humnn specie, and as there is no law protecting man they can work with no fear of inter ference. The case of state vs. Geo. Williams et al has been on trial two days. The affair oc curred at the Locks, and is regarding fish ing rights. The jurors are E. P. FitzGei aid, J. G. Koontz, Edward Bohna, Geo. W. Johnston, M. B. Odell, J. E. Bat nett, Alex. Gray, Thomas Olsen, H. U. Draper, T. M. Dun ton. Wm. Goodwin and C. R. Bone. John Lewis. Hugh Lewis, Johnnie Owens, Chas. Stnblin an 1 Jam s M -Ui.n-ald lift last evening f r B al- ck, on a goo e and duck bunting tour. Tney took with them a full supply of ammunition aud pro visions. An express wagon has been en gaged to carry the game to their dwellings from the freight depot. These gentlemen are nimrods, and whenever tbey aim their guus game fail by laws of natural attraction. There will be no use for any sporting men to visit the region for a long time hereafter. Yakima Herald: Prosecuting Attorney Snively reports that counterfeit five, tcu and twenty dollar gold pieces are in circula tion in Ellensburgh and over a thousand dollars of this coin has been passed there and a large amount at Spokane Falls. The pieces are of good appearance and the right ring, but are too iight in weight. The coins are U3Ully passed during the rush of business or at times when the attention of the party on whom they are to be passed is pre occupied. Yakima business men would do well to be on their guard and closely scan all gold tendered by strangers. The following from the Polk county Ob server is Al. Snyder all over: "Here we are! we havn't any power presses; we have but a limited supply of ordinary type, only one chair with a broken leg, just one galley, and this we have to nse for locking op forms; one piece of metal lurniture. about half a dozen leads, use a 20-penny nail for shoot ing stick, a claw-hammer for a mallet, and a fir chip for a planer. Though our outfit amounts to so little we venture the asser tion that we do nore and better printing than any other shebang in Polk county. Plain and ornamental job printing a special ty. All are invited to come and examine our outfit, wprk and prices." We learn from the Albany Democrat that last Friday at Brownsville, Lyman Butts, a man about 60 years of age, and Mrs. Clark, an old lady nearly blind, who has been as sisted by the county some, got into a quar rel over a fence, when Butts attaoked her, striking her a heavy blow. A couple ot men happened to see the act. M -s. Clark rushed to Squire Hume's office, with blood on her face and swore out a warrant against Butts, who was arrested and heavily fined, he Democrat is informed thtt grert in dignation was expressed over the conduct of Butts in striking a decrepit woman, weak mentally and physically. From Fridays Dally. Mr. and Mrs. Geo, Johnston, of Dufur, are in the city. Liberatti's band performed at Walls Walla last Wednesday. Mr. H. N. Weber arrive I in this city from 1 sco ma yesterday.

Bennett for the state and Mays & Huntington for the defense. The body of Dick Edwards was removed yesterday to tbe Uatbolic graveyard.

The Epworth Christian league meets everv Moddav evening in the Methodist church. There was quite a heavy frost on the ground this morning, and the atmosphere was cool enongh for winter. The U. S. grand jury drawn last Monday have the following names from The Dalles: smith .trench. J. U. Jjarsen aud r. x. Sharp. The meat markets of this city have some of the best beef we have ever seen. Tho sides and tenderloin steaks make one bun gry to view them. Kevublican: A. C. McClelland, of Island City, has been appointed receiver of the land othce at La grande vice J. X. uutnonse, deceased. He will make an efficient omuer. During the sojourn of Judge Liebe in Germany he met Mr. F. A. Allehoff, a son to Mr. AUehotf of this city He was in the employ of a large wholesale firm, and bad tbe conbdence ot bis employes. Judge Liebe and son Fred arrived last evening from uermany. xne judge nas been on a visit to his old home for several months past and his son has been attending school in that country for some years. After the 17th of this month the O. R & N. will be known as the Western Division of the Union Pacific. A change will be made in the time card, and it is also stated that a fast train scheduled at 40 miles an hour will be run between Omaha aud Port land. East Oregonian: A 14-year-old girl named Daisy liurliL'h jumped trom a wagon on lower Webb street some weeks ago, ran away and has since disappeared. No trace of the missing girl can be discovered by her relatives. She is a sister ot Airs. a. -a. Roberts, of Ridge. Mr. Bidwell Cram and wife, of Crook county, have bean visiting relatives in this city for a few days past. Mr. Cram is one of Crook county's mo3t enterprising young stockmen, and reports everything prosper ous. He is a son of Mrs. P. Cram, of this city, and returned home yesterday. Monday, the lSth of this month, has been set apart as a day of special prayer immediately prejeeding the National Con vention of the iV. C. T. U. All members and friends of the W. C. T.

They have not completed the test in the prescribed studies. The Pendleton Tribune of yesterday con tained the valedictory of the present editor, Mr. J. B. Eddy. The press of the north west will regret losing Mr. Eddy from the fratruKy, as he has been courteous to co- temuoranes, aud hgnilicd and elevated thn position winch he (tccitpifi. A e ex tend to liim our bt-.-t wishes for succi 3s iu any vocation he may follow iu the future. Baker City Democrat: The daily stage running between Canyon City aud -connecting with the railroad at Heppner is doing a good business with the people of Malheur and Harney counties, owing no doubt, to the danger attendant on the Baker City route of being "held up." The Chinese miners of Grant couuty are sending all their gold dust by this route to aynid being robbed. - As Peter Christiansou, wife aud child were eating breakfast by lamplight yester day moruiiig at Tacoma, an oil lamp ex ploded, throwing the burning fluid over the three and igniting the building. The fl unes were extinguished after an effort, iu which both parents were badly injured. Mrs. Christianson's recovery is doubtful, and tha child died a few minutes after the explosion. The Palouse Gazette says: Hon. J. C. Tur ner, while filling the olfice of county audi tor, omitted a mortgage of d000 in making out an abstract for Kuapp, Burreli & Co., by which that company became responsible. The matter had to be made etraight, and Mr. Turner last week gave a mortgage to the full amount thereby becoming person ally responsible. No intentional v.-fong was perpetrated and thus an innocent person suffers and pays the debts of someone else. IF. W. Journal, 13th: A man who gave his name as J. C. Wright was on trial in the justice couit to-day on a charge of grand larceny. During the course of the trial Officer Smails was called out of tbe room whereupon Wright sprang to his feet and went out of the room by the back door, afterwards b:ing caught in the bulkhead. Wright with his wife and small son came from Pullman Monday, since which time he has picked a man's pocket of $1)3.50, and swindled Kirk Bros, of $7.50. He is a case. Those parties who are digging the ditch for a water pipe on Third street, between Langhlin and Federal, are liable to be called up for heavy damages, if they do not use a little care in leaving broken sidewalks. Last night the walk was torn up and left so. with a ditch dug under it, and nothing to warn pedestrians, who were making their way home after dark. Such carelessness is not less than criminal, and onr city author ities should see that care is used in sucb work, and employees so grossly careless should be discharged and competent men put in their place. Of the legal force recently played in Linn county, where the two Rolfes, train wreck ers, were acquitted and their compiuion, a stranger, sent up for ten years, tbe Albany Democrat says: "Three young men all to gether in a common piece of deviltry. One had a long tongue and went to j iil for a multitude of years. The others went scott free. That is a good illustration of the ways aud history of life. There are two men out of the penitentiary who deserve to be thereto one who really looks from be hind the bars. Not the worst boy in school is always punished nor the meanest men in the world who go to iail." The Board of Trade, pnrsnnnt to a notice to that tflect in yesterday's Times-Mountaineer, met last night in the old court house, to consider ways and means for sup plying the possible needs of farmers in the :routb-stricken district. A numlier of tanners from the country were invited to be present to g've their opinion as to the possible amount of assistance required. The farmers were there all right, and so was our esteemed fellow citizen A. S. Mac- allister, who kindled the tire and lit the lamps. There would doubtless have been a large and enthusiastic meeting if they had come, but as usual they duln c, aud Mr, Macollister and the farmers, after waiting about an hour, folJed tbeir tents, like the Arabs, and quietly stole away. PLEASE TAKE IT BACK. Wri.ten for the Times-Mountaineer, The following poem is founded on real life, and will be appreciated by very many of our yoouir gatc-swingers and Lovers' Nook boomers. You kused me at the gate last night And mother heard the "smack," She says 'tis naughty to do so, So please, do take it back. I cannot see what htrm thore is, In such a thing, can you, But mother seems so very wrath. Please take it back now do. It seems to be quite natural For lips to meet that way, But mother says 'tis very wrong, So take it back, I pray. An 1 come to thinkof it, I'm sure That several times 'twas done, So now to make it right, be sure To tak-j back every one. I would not have you think 'tis me, I do not care a mite. But mother's so particular, " Please take them back to-night. Jst. Care for Jiles. Itching Piles are known by moisture like perspiration, producing a very disagreeable itching after getting warm.

Astoria, from upprr town to Aldercoye, is excited oyer what is supposed to be ghostly yisitations. Seyeral persons affirm that re cently they hare, when going home late at night, seen a spectre boat, with set sail and lone oconpant, glide out on the bay and dis appear down tbe river. The first man to report the matter was a Russian Fin, and when he told the story he was laughed at. The next morning another fisherman named Stevenson reported that he also bad seen the strange boat that disappeared down the river. With this corroborative testimony the curiosity of tbe neighborhood was aiouscd and the next night a watch was set for the supposed phantom. After many hours of waiting and watching tbe investi gators were rewarded by sighting the ex pected craft out in the channel. In the boat sat a man who held the sheet and guided the vessel. It was bright n-.ijiulight and the boat and figure, surrounded by a mist and halo, could be plainly seen. The phantom boat glided swiftly seaward and tbe men pulled away in chase, which wa continued for more than a mile, when the pursued came to a standstill, and the Steven son party rapidly drew up lowaru iu When their boits got within perhaps a hundred yards of the spook the figure was seen to arise and wave its nana, ana aiuiosc simultaneously the boat tilted stern np- wards as if eoing over a huge wave and dis appeared. This thoroughly frightened the party and without stopping to investigate further they returned to the shelter of thtir cabins. COJIfi BACK.
