The chairs in the new Vogt were not but for two nor were they calcu lated to stand up under such weight as Representative F. N. Jones. One of them went down under his 275 pounds of avordupois at the theater last night, and today is only fit to be made into toothpicks. The janitor of the state house is hereby notihed to prepare an extra cha'r in the representative hall for Wasco county's giant legislator. Mayor Pennoyer has incurred the wrath of the Telegram and Oregon ian by removing the chief of the fire de partment and appointing Tim DeBoest in his stead. If one were to accept the statements of those papers as true, he would believe the mayor had commit ted a great crime, and that every prop erty in the city was on the eve of being destroyed by fire. Happily, however, very few place much confidence in the statements of those papers. The Oregonian today contains a dis patch from this city which says: "Re ports received today from Crook coun ty give cheering news of prospects of republican success. A careful esti mate says Crook will go 300 republi can. Mitchell precinct, that was once democratic, will go 73 per cent republi can this year." W. E. Misner, of Cali fornia, who has b?en visiting his son, Representative-Elect R. E.

Members of the so ciety and their friends are expected to attend. Miss Ella Weathers, who has been visiting Mrs. W. A. Kirby in this city, left this morning for her home at La Grande, accompanied by little Maud Kirby, who goes to La Grand to visit relatives. A. R. Rhodes, of Newberg, who bas been looking at farming lands in this vicinity with a view to locating, re turned to bis home at that place this morning by boat. He was much pleased with this country. Too much credit cannot be given Miss Johnson, the nurse who attended Mr. Lochhead. It was through her untiring efforts and careful nursing that his life was prolonged the last 48 bom s before his death. The good ship Regulator took a large number of passengers this morning to down river points. If the political dis cussions that began on the wharf con tinue and get fully ripe on tne trip, we may expect quite a breeze up the river today. W. Hi Hendricks of Walla Walla, went by boat to Lyle this morning for a weeks visit. He is an enthusiastic Bryan man. and asked that the Moun taineer be sent to him while at Lyle, that he might be kept posted.' He says Walla Walla will give Bryan a big majority. rne a. u. u. w. loage nere is rap idly increasing its membership since Jia visit of Grand Lecturer Herrin and the other grand lodge officers. Last night, 12candidates were initiated into the first degree, two others rpde the goat, and proving successful riders were pronounced good workmen, and eight applications for membership wer received. This good old order maintains it3 popularity well. Mr. W. C. Selleck was badly hurt about half past two today. He was bringing in twenty sacks of wheat to market, when the team ran away, throwing him out, the wheel of the wagon striking his neck and crushing the fingers of his right hand. . He was brought into town at once, in an un unconcious condition, and Dr. Hollis- ter is now in attendance. It is not thought to be a yery serious hurt. Mr. Andrew Keller, our popular baker and confectioner, bas on exhi bition in his show window a fine speci men of his work, in the shape of a wedding cake. He won't tell yet who the happy parties are, who are to par take of it that may furnish another item shortly. Mr. Kellar's establish ment is another of The Dalles business houses that is rapidly advancing as a wholesale and jobbing house. He is furnishing candies now to the trade at less than Portland prices. J ANOTHER POINT FOB BRItX. lion, flarrr) Watklnt Addressed Large Audience at the Baldwin. All that is necessary to convince the lea-t credulous that there is a strong :Iryaa sentiment in and about The Dalles, is to attend such a meeting as was held at the Bald win opera house last night. Fully 500 people were pres eot, ar.d they listened with marked attention to every word that was utter ed by tbo speaker. Mr. Watkics is in deed an orator of much more than ordinary abi'itv and fairly carries his audience away with his flights of elo ouence. He holds that the fioancial question is the great and only question now before the people, and succeeds well iu convincing his hearers of the correctness of his position. In his speech here he very clearly showed that the contraction of the currency by persistently endeavoring to main tain tne gold standard among the lead ing nations of tho world, must increase the demand for that metal, hence on banco its purchasing power, thus re ducing the Dries of the products of labor when measured exclusively in that metal. At the close of his address Mr. Wat- kins called for thrco cheers for Wm J, Bryan, and all but about half a dozn of those present rose to their feet and sent up three rousing cheers for the preat commoner and friend of the people. ductions ever heard, and the 'Colum bia Souvenir Sorg," which has been rendered by the quartette all over the land, was another popular hit. In fact every number rendered vas good, and conyinced all the hearers that the De Moss family are accomplished musi cians, able to ra-iko music out ot me simplest contrivances. The entertain ment was indeed one of the best musi cales ever given in the city. AID THE CAUSE. AT THE LOCKS. Work I Progressing as Rapidly as Conld Be Expected. The locks will be;readytor operation on Nov. 15, or even sooner, -f present indications count for anything. All the men appear to be employed that can be worked to an advantage, and I. N.-Day declares that, barring unfor- seen accidents, he will have the re maining walls completed by Oct. 20. The south wall between the upper guard gate and the lock gate was com pleted last week, and the first layer of stone on the north wall was laid yes terday, and the contractors expect to be able to lay three courses a week un til the wall is completed. The dredger Enterprise was brought through the locks last Saturday and is engaged dredging out the bay ai the upper end of the canal, while the contractor's dredger is removing the bulkhead at the lower end. The contractors assured G. P. Mor gan, who spent Tuesday and Wednes day at the Locks, that it was their in tention to push tho work as rapidly as possible, and if the weather permitted them to proceed without interruption, they would haye the canal open before the specified time. THE DALLES WAIEK SUPPLY. Rest In 1'eaec. Last night at 45 minutes pist 11 o'clock V . H. Lochhead'. .breathed hi9 lst, cut off suddonly in the prime cf life and usefulness hy that dread dis ease, 'typhoid fcer. William II- Lochhead was born in London, England, in 1857, and was 39 years of age. His father was a ter geant in the British army and came to America when his son was quite young, settling at jnariottetown Prince Edward9 island, where Mr. Lochhead was raised to manhood. He came to The Dalles in 1887 to work at Moody's warehouse, and went into business on hi9 own account in 1889,conducting a feed and commission busness in the East End. Mr. Lochhead was prominently con nccted with many enterprises in our midst, his energy and good judgement making him especially useful in tne tire department and public works of all kinds. ' He married IS years ago Miss Mabel Burke of Charlottetown, who survives him. His mother was telegraphed for but could not reach the bedside of her son in time to see him alive. Kind friends were with him however for he was the kind of man who makes friends, true and generous. He was a member of the Masonic order. True it is that ''Death seeketh a shining mark," for W. H. Lochhead will be sadly missed in this his far west home. Eequiescat in Pace. la It Germs of Impregnated With Disease? The prevalence of typhoid fever in The Dalles at present is somewhat alarming, there being about 20 cases reported, and this leads citizens to fear that there is something wrong with the water supply. The Dalles water works are supplied from Mill creek, a stream that rises in the Cas cade mountains, and the water' should be perfectly pure, if allowed to flow uninterrupted; but it passes through a number of farms, and it is said flows through numerous sheep corrals, pig pens and cattle yards, which must im pregnate the water with disease germs, such as produce typhoid and other fevers. The health officers of the city and the water commission should at once make an investigation,, and if anything is found in or atong the stream that tends to impregnate the wrter it should be removed. The health of the city must not be en dangered by a lack of vigilance on the part of those whose duty it is to see that the water supply is pure. WHOLE LOT OF THEM Land Transfers.

Editor TiMlts-MorNTAiXEER: Tho undersigned, having by due authority been appointed a sub-com mittee to make a final effort for raiding tho balance of t!io fund uecess iry to secure a proper testimonial to the battle ship '"Oregon," present the fol fowing to the people of the state: When, jn May, 18U5. the general committee was Appointed by the gov ernor, various plans were devised, each promising good results; but for various causes the amount required to give proper recognition to the great honor conferred on the state has not been rai ed. The main cause bas of course been the stringency of the tin.es, but in addition to this, the committee has stepped aside for various enterprises which sought public subscriptions. among these being local celebrations and the exposition at Portland. The political contest in June last also inter fered to some extent with the work of the committee. But the time is drawing near when the magnificent battle ship "Oregon" will have been fully completed, and may turn her prow northward to visit the waters of the state after which she has been named. The people of the state owe it to themselves that a fitting recognition of the honor accorded us be made. The balance still left to be raised, if all contributions and pledges are collected, is about $1500. We regret that the people of the in terior parts of the state have not come forward with that liberality which patriotic interest suggests, and this appeal is now made to commercial bodies, associations, churches, societ ies, clubs and individuals. None are asked who cannot give. j. ue amount contributed will come back to the donors a hundredfold under the consciousness of a duty performed. Subscriptions will be- received up to and including October 31, 1896, and should be forwarded to Henry Failing, treasurer, testimonial battle ship Ore gon, First National Bank, Portland, Oregon, v ery resp't.

' To Wear Masks For Bryan. A Chicago dispatch bearing date of Sept. 24th, says: A feature of the Bryan demonstra tion on Chicago Day. Oct. 9, will be a division of masked men who will represent that they are coerced em ployees, who are compelled to wear McKinley buttons to hold their jobs. These men will march together wear ing black masks, to conceal their iden tity, and carry banners proclaiming their "serf-like bondage to a pitying world," as the campaign orator would put it. It is the intention of the silverites to make this display a feature of the demonstration. ner Monday, came home Tuesday by team. He also made the trip going by team. Mr. Pierce says one ha only to go over to Heppner, as a representa tive of freo silver and the matchless Bryan, to find hosts of strong support era and have a cordial reception. The Bryan club had the meeting in charge. The stage was decorated with bunting and flags.- A number of campaign songs were Sung, and an enthusiastic audience listened to and applauded the sentiments expounded by the speaker. "Anyone" who sees thiogs as they really are in Morrow county," says Mr. Pierce, "will say the Bryanites are making a winning fight over there. The Bryan club contains men of all classes, business men, professional men, laborers, mechanics, wool grow ers, wheat farmers, and has a member ship which shows it to be about the most popular institution in tbe city."

It is claimed by the republican press that all the old soldiers are for McKin ley, but this claim seems without foundation. Fully half the Grand Army men in the vicinity of The Dalles are rallying around the stand ard of Bryan, and this seems to be the case in other sections as well. The Roseburg Review, in telling of how the speech delivered by Hon. A.' S. Bennett, ofthfs city, terminated at Roseburg (which it mentions as one of the most enthusiastic meetings held in that city) says: "An old soldier announced that a majority of the members of the sold iers borne was for Bryau and silver, and this evoked hearty cheers. Next a white haired gentleman came to the front of the bouse and said: . Thirty years ago the first republi can convention of Douglas county waa held in the old oourt house which stood on the site of the present building. I had the honor to be chairman of that convention, and havo always been a republican. I claim to be a republi can yet, but I shall cast my vote for Wm. J. Bryan for president.' This man is one of Douglas county's most honored pioneers, Mr." David Ea(e, p,f Day3 creek. His announcement then brought out more hearty cheers, and many of the audience thronged around Judge Bennett to shake his hand and congratulate him on his speech," The De Moss Family Quartette. Although the crowd that greeted the De Moss quartette at the Congrega tional church last night was not large, it was none the less an appreciative audience, and was well repaid for having attended. The opening piece, "General Custer's Last Battle," com posed by Henry De Moss, was happily received, and was pronounced by all as one of the greatest "character" pro- charge at the Locks, and as it will un doubtedly be for' our best interest to prevent that positioa from falling into the hands of politicians to be used as a bait or a prize for dirty campaign work, on either side. It is a good time now, in advance of any definite knowledge as to which side will be in power, to have it clearly understood that the keeping of Cascade Locks shall neyer be used as a political factor The "Bowery Girl." Tbi9 exciting drama was rendered to a good house at the Vogtlast.night, and was well received. The plot of tbe play is deep and jvell laid, and requires some heavy acting. Thestir, Lillian Keene, as Nora Hollinan, a bowery society leader, is indeed an actress of far more than ordinary ability, and ' succeeded In Winning the applause of Dalles theater gowers whenever she appeared on the stage; while little 'Helene, the ohil 1 of only four years,- is' a perfect phenomena. A happy feature of the play was the disolving sod tie which was a stage effect heretofore unknown In The Dalles. It may be said without fear of contradiction that 'Harry WiL Hams' play is a great hit, .'and will be well received by theater goers every where. There was only one.feature to mar the enjoyment, and that' was the pi iy was rushed and out short in-order that the troupe might catch the east bound train. This however may be expected with all companies" traveling east, unless our theater goers -can as semble promptly at 8 o'clock. . Land Office Transactions. Homestead proof, J. H.

The Rathbone Sisters had an un usually enjoyable evening's entertain ment yesterday. Fir3t and foremost a prominent disciple of Esculapius was strapped onto the lodge goat, and duly initiated into mysteries of which this deponent knoweth not. iNext, a list of ten questions perti nent to the coming winter's wood pile, were banded around. For instance, was asked, what kind of wood would rock the baby? Papaw wood. Ten questions such as this stumped the most knowing, but Mrs. Dr. Frazier answered seven correctly, and won first prize. ' Charley Stubbling not being u fait on wood, would not, so bore home the booby. After the prizes came an elegant supper, prepared by a com mittee of which Mrs. W. H. Wilson was chairman, and after the supper dancing was in order until midnight. The Rathbones never do anything by halves, and this is said to have been the best, even, of their usually pleas ant evenings. Letters Advertised.
