Judge Bradshaw is at home again
after having sit for Judge Stearns, in
ourt No. 2 at Portland,, for two weeks
past. Judge Bradshaw was well liked
by attorneys and all who came before
bim, and he was so very kindly treated
that he may wish to go there again, in
the same capacity, sometime.
The C. L. S. C. held its weekly meet
ing last evening. It was found neces
sary to employ the "Cxar Keed" style
f ruling in order to secure a quorum.
That being obtained the lesson and rou
' tine business were disposed of. The
' meeting on next Monday will be held at
the residence of Mrs. G. C. Blakeley.
A dispatch from Washougal says
that during a heavy fog Friday night
the Bteamer lone ran aground on the
shoals on the Oregon shore opposite
there, while on hernsual daily trip. The
Dalles City passed down and attempted
to pnll her off without success. The
Hustler arrived later but was nnable to
get her afloat.
The mechanical appliance for sawing
ff the piling for the pivotal pier of the
Burnside bridge in Portland, near the
. bottom of the river, 60 feet below the
surface, is a circular saw hung on a shaft
auspeoiled from a carriage, which runs
n a frame near the top of the pier.
Steamers passing the pier have to slow
down to avoid breaking the saws, while
this work is carried along.
WJiile "meandering" his way over the
. line ol-4he Columbia railway and Navi
gation company's route yesterday on
horseback a bidder for the contract
tame upon a wild goose disabled by a
broken wing. He started after the bird
and succeeded in capturing it, found it
f ne and fat. He wrung its neck and
has invited a friend to help him eat it
. at The Umatilla this evening at dinner.
The inconveniences experienced in
the postoffice at The Dalles are owing to
the insufficiency of help, the result of
the short allowance by the department
at Washington. Similar complaints
are heard from various other towns of
the northwest. It is the intent of the
government to afford the people celerity,
certainty and surety in the transmission
and delivery of mail matter, bat it
eems to be difficult for the officials at
the national capital to even comprehend,
far less to keep pace with, the rapid ad
vancement and growth of the wonderful
region embraced in the designation of
the Pacific Northwest. '
We received a very pleasant call this
morning from Mr. J. F. Rorich and his j
little son, of Michigan. Mr. B. is pub-
liaher of the. Bad Axe Democrat, in:
Huron county, and his risibilities are
somewhat excited on noticing how some
people here are .visibly affected by the
touch of winter now passing over us. In
Huron county this would pass for a
mild fall day. .
The present "streak of winter" ap
pears to have been especially for The
Dalles. It came from the southwest and
seomingly spent its force here. The
Goldendale stage driver reports that
there is not so much snow on the Klicki
tat range as there is here, and beyond
that the ground is barely covered with
snow. In Sherman county, from Wasco
to the Columbia river, the snow fall did
not exceed one inch in depth.
J. D. Parish, one of the proprietors of
the Oregon, California and Idaho stage
company, WHO nas oeen nere several
.lava In ritanlt.Atinn with others con-
t.ected with that line, informs us today
that he has decided to remain in The
Dalies permanently, and make this the
future headquarters of the compnny.
Mr. Parish is an old-time resident of this
city, and was for many years one of the
most popular stage man in the Inland
Empire. We are glad to welcome him

The findings of the state board o
equalization in this county yesterday
respecting assessments, may be summed
up" about as follows: In the matter of
tock, sheep are assessed about twenty-
nve cents per neau lower ,n n.Bro ln.n
... ... ,
n other counties oi ,ast rn uregon;
cattle $2.00 to $2.50 per head less than in
Crook, which may probably be an over
assessment in the latter county. Horses
are lower here than the average. On
city property they find that Dalles city
has a lower assess i.ent than Baker city,'
which has the highest assessment of any
city in Eastern Oregon, l hey came to
no material understanding! respecting
land and railway assessments, which
will be treated extensively in the com-
ng report to be submitted to tbe assem
bly. They propose to make some very
important recommendations, particu
larly in the matter of deductions for in
debtedness. They find that it is the al
most unanimous expression of tbe peo
ple that the clause in the law requiring
udebtedness deductions should be re
pealed, and all property be assessed
where ever it is found.
A short time since an unknown boy,
aged about twelve years, appeared in
The Dalles and stopped at Skibbe's
hotel. He was seemingly anxious to
work, and finally went to Mrs. O'Barr's
boarding house where be stayed a while.
Mrs. O'Barr beard of a place for him out
on 15-Mile, with the family of Mr. J.
McReynolds. He went there, and was
employed at choring. Last Saturday
night he took a horse and was sent out
to drive the milch cows up to the place.
He failed to return, and as the horse
was found in the large pasture Sunday
morning, search was instituted to find
the boy, which we are informed had
been unsuccessful up to yesterday at
least. It is feared that he has met with
an accident, and may have perished, as
he left his coat at the house, with all his
earthly possessions presumably, con
sisting of a few pieces of small coin. It
is barely possible that be became tired
of the position and concluded to again
take to the road ; or he may be an es
cape from tbe state reform school, as we
understand there are two boys from that
institution somewhere abroad in the In
land Empire. He seems to have care
fully avoided revealing his identity.

he sold for five cents per lb. on foot.
The hogs averaged 200 lbs each. He was
eight days on the road, and the weather
was terribly stormy. The wind blew
with great force, trees falling on every
hand and making it dangerous to travel.
The snow waa four inches deep on a
portion of the route.
Capt. and Mrs. F. H. Sherman's resi

Charles Denton was ont today in a
fine Goose-Neck, four-passenger sleigh,
which style was all the go' in fashiona
ble circles on Brighton road back in the
fifties. This same sleigh has done duty
in The Dalles whenever there was snow
since 1855, and it is still in good condi
tion. I. was brought from the east,
around Cape Horn in the summer of
that year, for Capt. Jordan, who was
then an army officer, stationed at the
garrison in this city.

returning Mrs. Smith chanced to notice
that a lot of plants that had been placed
in the windows were gone, and proceeded
j to investigate. Chub was discovered
i the first thing, and then Chub's work
came to light. The Glacier says he had
knocked down every plant, gnawed the
bottoms of the doors and mouldings
nearly through, chewed up tbe carpet
for a yard around each door, and the
window Bills gave evidence of the sharp
ness of his teeth. The dog was delighted
to get out, as there was nothing left for
him to do insiiie.
We are pleased to learn that Capt. J.
O'Brien, formerly of the Premier, whose
license was revoked as a result of the
stranding of tbe whaleback Wetmore at
Coos bay, has passed an examination
for a new license, and will probably be
given the command of the Premier when
repaired, as he has the full confidence of
Capt. John Irving. Tbk Cbboniclk be
lieves with Capt. Geo. Pope, that the
scurrilous press allusions to the misfor
tunes of Capt. O'Brien were unmerited.
He is worthy at any time to be called a
true seaman. His ability is known to
every resident of this coast the past 20
years. . In saving the Umatilla his
heroism was equal to the bravest. But
we do not endorse Capt. Pope's ideas

Mr. Alfred Rasche, one of the seven
traveling salesmen on the road for the
coffee and spice house of Clossett &
Deavere, was in the city last evening
winding np his last "outing" for 1892.
This makes the 19th year he has been on
the road, eleven years east and eight
years in Oregon. This year he decided
to embark in a little venture on his own
account, and looking about for an in
vestment, the best thing he conld see,
for certain and immediate returns, was
the sheep and wool industry of the In
land Empire, and he placed $5,000 in
Klickitat sheep; letting them ont on
shares. He will continue with Messrs.
Clossett & Deavers in his present capa
city, and the company intend to put two
more good men on the road nefct year.
In about two weeks Mr. R. will again
visit The Dalles, to be here and take or
ders for more goods when tbe Regulator
and Dalles City are ready to resume

prefer to make their shipments by the
ales favorite line, The Dalles, Port

Mankind is so happily constituted
that the change of season is usually
gladly welcomed in this latitude. Win
ter is always long enough even when
short; spring lingers as leisurely as any
body wishes; summer has exhausted
her welcome and the autumn can ordi

rigorous season without regret.
The train due here at 11 :45 p. m. yes
terday from Portland arrived at 10 :45 a.

and looked like the ragged edges of an
arctic sea on coming into The Dalles.
The locomotives were covered to the
headlights with ice and snow.

isn't it a commentary upon "manage
ment," the way this U. P. R. "system"
deals with the public? No snow plows
in sight, and scarcely fuel enough on -
hand to last during a week of modera
tion. . Is it any wonder the people are
load in their complaints about the arbi
trary and half idiotic style of doing bus
iness by this monopoly, run solely for
all the public will stand. .
Sheriff T. A. Ward returned from the
Sheriff's association meeting in Portland
yesterday. The recommendation of the
Oregon bar association to make' the
sheriff a salaried officer instead of a fee .
officer came up for discussion. Judge
Thayer, who is one of the committee
appointed by the association to draft a
bill providing for the change, which
will be presented to the legislature, .
asked for views on the subject. Sheriffs
of the smaller counties who are not -
making fortunes out of their office, and
several sheriffs who enjoy a brisk busi
ness, Appeared to be in favor of the
change. Judge Thayer invited the
executive committee to discuss the sub
ject with "him and offer any suggestions
they may think proper, as soon as pos
sible. ADMINISTKA1RIX' SALE.
