There is about the same conditions of snow, etc., out there as here. Mrs. P. M. S. Bnggs was delighted to recieve a Christmas visit from her father from Chehalis on the first train yester day. ', Goods were damaged in several stores throughout the city Sunday night, by an overflow of water from snow and rain on roofs of the buildings. Mr. N. Whealdon managed to get onie from the consolidated city yester day. He may be set down as a pertectly competent manager after this. The Congregational Sunday school will give an invitation party tonight in The Chhonici.e hall, which is to take the place of a Christmas tree.' ' According to the weather bureau rec ords for the month of January for the past. 20 years, that month in 1893 is likely to be a .fairly average winter month. At "the Diamond mills one day laet week, 'Mr. Winzler informs us there might have been seen an icicle 10 inches thick at the eaves, and 50 feet long. Tfttf-worst'bloekade on the U. P. R. between this city and Fortland was a dfrift t Bridal Veil. The melting snow was packed in almost as hard as a rock.

Sherman, who is placing the Regulator on the ways today, says the ice is more solid and compact along the edges of the levee than he supposed. It is pretty hard ice. The gorge in the Columbia at Hell- jgate has broken away and the river is filled with floating icebergs today, but it is not an obstruction to navigation. It Ihae caused the river to rise rapidly. Vancouver is cut off from connection with Portland because of ice in the river Iwhich prevents the running of the ferry fco connect with the east side motor line. ' tin this region running ice has not impeded navigation at all this season. The I. O. G. T. will meet this week on Friday evening instead of Saturday, on account of the Experience social. All members are earnestly requested to be present. The Fairfield elevator burned on the E2d. It contained 60,000 bushels of wheat, aud the loss is estimated at $50,- WW, which ia thought to be fully covered py insurance. The first trains to reach The Dalles Irom Portland since last Thursday, came n at 4 :30 yesterday afternoon. A good ig wagon load ot mail was hauled to the postoffice. Mr. Singleton's team of horses, draw Ing a lizard, near Mosier went down pver a steep emoansment saturdav, so Ixippling one of them that it could not be recovered. " The administrator sale of the Moore property which wasljp have occurred on Eaturday'laat, was postponed until Sat urday next. This is for a sale of desira ble residence property in the city. Mr. Price, who came in Saturday light from a point sixty miles beyond rineyille, says the snow extends that ar south, and is about eighteen inches teep on the average level. He left Prineville Wednesday evening. The roof of the large livery barn on fourth street was cleared of snow by a era per rigged so as to work it by a horse n the street. It was one of Lute's iatents, and it worked like a charm. Mr. Parish, of The Dalles and Prine- fille stage line, returned from his trip ver the route Sunday sight. He has royided for plenty of hay and Brain at II the stations, and as prompt service a the weather will admit of. j The ladies of the Good Intent society are leaving nothing undone to make the Experience social a success, Saturday 1 Tha small nnm nf 25 cents .nnfrihnte.l for the onran fund, admits one to the social and the lunch. The rotary snow plow came back to The "Dalles this morning and is now in the shops receiving the repairing which she should have received along in last August and September, if she had been in the hands of prudent managers. The rain fall at The Dalles Sunday night from 8 p. m. till morning, was the haviBt ever vet experienced in this vicinrtv. me iaii was equai to i.oi .. mi r 11 , a inches, which, together with the snow, gives us three inches on the ground. Mr. A. W. Coffin, of the firm of Coffin Brothers, Arlington, was in the city spending . Christmas . with relatives. Messrs. Coffin Brothers have recently disposed of 1,500 head of lambs at $2.50 per head. They are wintering 10,000 head of sheep. The road was so difficult to follow Saturday, six miles this side of Bake Oven, because of snow, that the stage driver was lost for several hours. Snow is a good thing for the couutry, but it is not pleasant at all times to drive through. Mavor Mays will be thankful if any one who knows the whereabouts of his thoroughbred Leghorn rooster, will in form him. The chicken left the perch presumably during the snow storm, and if not perished, may have located in some neighboring yard. Mrs. K. F. Miller, managing editor of Chicago Industrial Magazine, paid us a fraternal visit yesterday. Mrs. Miller is out for a vacation, and will write up her observations for a special edition of 1,000,000 copies. She left The Dalles well posted with respect to resources of the Inland Empire. The air has been full of rumors con cerning accidents and Balfe Johnson, of the W. U. T. Co., turned it to profitable account by hanging out a bulletin with "an accident" scare head in big 40-line picas". The details directed travelers to the advantages of a policy of insurance in Balfes' company, when an accident should happen. Gov. and Mrs. and Miss Moody, anx ious to return to their Salem home, made the start today. They bad got as far as The Umatilla house on their jour- patiently watching the clock tick the hours away it should be an act pun ishable by a severe penalty, for any rail way company to- suppress information of the kind, and keep people waiting for trains that never come. We had the pleasure yesterday ef tak ing a short walk with Capt Lewis, regis-' ter of The Dalles U. S. Land office, at his residence in this city. He walked with us from his sick chamber to the dining room, which is considerably of a tramp for him, when one considers how verv near Death's Door the captain was so recently. If he has no relapse he hopes to get out on the street with the advent of fair weather, Messrs. Will Corson and Fletcher Faulkner enioved their Christmas by a fraternal and ' social visit to friends on 15-Mile. They started out at an early hour in the morning, in an elegant cutter, behind a pair of spanking read ers, the sleigh loaded la Santo Clans, and after dispensing of the gifts iu true Kris Kringle fashion, returned to the city, arriving about 11 p. m. They found the sleighing excellent, and say they never before enjoyed such a "Merry Christmas." The weather the past few days serves to remind a few old timers of the days when the Canyon City mail contractor started out with the mails daily for the south, for several weeks, but never got beyond the foot of the hill at East End. There the mail was securely packed away in a safe place, and when travel became possible it went on its way. By this little device the contractor was paid, and there was no fines imposed by the knowing ones" at headquarters in Washington city. It was a necessary deception. Remarking upon the policy pursued by the managers of the U. P. R. during a crisis in travel like this, a prominent man in the citv who has been a close observer since the imported "pets" of the company took charge, eays it ap pears to him that the company is as heartless as it is soulless. They compel passengers to remain caged up in cars twenty-four hours at a time, simply in order to avoid the payment of bills in curred for their keeping, and they keep women and children out of bed all night in expectation of a start, for no other purpose than that of selling a ticket to some other deluded traveler. The Nez Perce Indians now refuse to sell their alloted lands in the reserva tion. Editor Alfred, of the Lewiston Tribune, who was here yesterday, says there has been a syndicate at work on' the Indians to prevent sales. The syn dicate propose leasing the lands for a term of years. . The commissioners have called another council for the 29th, and will then endeavor to get the poorer Indiana to consent to the sale. The council as at present constituted ia com posed entirely of the wealthy members of the tribe, . who have big . herds of cattle and horses themselves, and wish to retain the pasture lands aa long as they can and to lease what they do not require themselves to white men - for grazing purposes only. Nine head of thoroughbred Angus cattle were 'killed bv the train coming in from Portland yesterday afternoon, as it pass- I ed through the Snipes pasture near ! Rowena. We understand the cattle be longed to Mr. Sharp. They were strung along the track and obstinately refused to take the snow, so were given the loco motive snow plow. A. T. Wheeler and wife of Portland, who have been on a five months visit east, were with the "now Iwuud paswen gere at The . Dalles from Christmas i morning until yesterday. ine ieii. ! Mishawaka and South Bend on the 20th, i and . had a perfect picnic across he country. No delays until The Dalles was reached. Mr. E. .Tacobsen was severely injured yesterday by falling through the awning in front of his store. He was engaged in shoveling snow1 off the roof, which was pitched on to the awning. After quite'a pile had accumulated he left the roof to shovel snow off the awning into the street. To reach the awning he jumped from the fire wall above, but when he struck the awning he didn't stop, he kept right on through to the sidewalk a distance in all of about 20 feet, and was badly bruised by the plunge. Mr. B. F. Laughlin, manager of the Regulator line, did not know, while he was sitting in The Umatilla office until 12 o'clock last night waiting for the 4:20 p. in. train to come along and take him to Portland, that bridges were being washed out at Latourelle; and that an other blockade, worse than snow, was upon the company. The train from the east, due at 4:20 p. in., got in at 11 a. ia. and remained in the yard. The only train 8 from Portland since Thursday were the ones which arrived yesterday afternoon. If any train has left here since that hour for Portland, it is safe to say that it has not yet reached its des tination, and the passengers are fixed as those were who went out on Saturday. It should be the law that railway offi cials shall furnish truthful bulletins re specting trains in such times as this, or be punished by heavy penalties. From the Daily Chronicle, Wednesday. Mud is beginning to show up at the street crossings. Trains on the U. P. R. are now run ning nearly on time. . Medal contest at the Court house to night. Be sure and attend. F. H.

Lig- ner, of Dufur, registered at The Umatilla today. Mr. Ed. Wingate is in the city from his business home at Antelope, to spend the holidays Archbishop Gross passed through at noon todav en route to a mission at Pendleton. A heavy train of freight came through from Portland today, reaching The Dalles at noon. A boom of logs burst away at Bridal Veil yesterday, and came very near tear ing out another bridge. l ne rain down Portland ways on Monday last was one df the most pour ing kind witnessed for years. Several train loads of delaved cattle are held at Heppner where feed is cheap, Freight trains began moving today. The legislature will meet at Salem under the new dome, on the second Monday, the 9th day of January, '93 A portion of the shed at the stock yard scales fell in from the weight of snow and water on the roof yesterday. Rain commenced falling in this city about 12 :30 p. m. and continued as we go to press, with prospects of increasing. It is a waste of time to read the papers delayed by the blockade. They are truly "back numbers" void of news or matters of interest. ' . Cholera is still prevalent in Hamburg. Four more cases and two' deaths were reported yesterday. Three cases are re ported fram Dunkirk, France. Reports from Morrow county Bay the snow has nearly all disappeared. In the region of Antelope there ia only about an inch of snow left on the ground. , At the special election on the 20th .for a joint representative, for the Grant and Harney district, the republican candi date, Gowan, was elected by 200 ma jority. . Horace Patterson ia in receipt of the sad new8 of the death of a brother in Salt Lake. Hia brother Rufus has just: left The Dalles on a visit to a married sister in California. A section of the old foundry, in the East End collapsed this morning from an overload of anow and water on the roof. The property ia owned by the Willamette Iron works ia Portland. Albert Roberts of the Big fiend region of the Des Chutes, eighteen miles from The Dalles, reports the snow rapidly dis appearing. -The ground was frozen, but the soil is getting a thorough soaking. Geo. McKinney. the U. P. yard man, has su! rendered his job, and goes to Portland tonight. He has filled the bill here faithfully for two" years. Never made an error, in the make up, nor got a wheel off the track. " 'v The public schools of The Dalles are enjoying the customary holiday va cation, which will continue the balance of the week. Studies will be resumed on Monday, at the academy, the sisters school, and the public schools. . Kennedys steam yacht . went adrift yesterday when the ice broke away from the shore below the mouth of Mill creek. The steam ferryboat- started after the derelict craft, and towed her to a safe place where she was again moored. The sheriff of Baker county finally landed bis prisoners in the Salem peni tentiary. They were James Reedy and J. T. Marcuni. The first will serve six years for manslaughter, and the latter one year for larceny. They were four days making the trip from The Dalles to Portland. The turkey which has escaped the Scylla of Thanksgiving and the Charyb dis of Christmas may look forward to gobbling times of peace. Humanity has had an abundance of. the white meat and a surfeit of the black meat, and no body will take turkey in his for many and many a week. " Horace Rice has a letter from Rep. Herman u which shows that there is little hope of the'Dolph bill, or any other measure, passing the democratic house for the relief of the possessor of a tract of railway forfeited land. If the applicant for the land resides upon it, he has until next fall to prove up. The children of thex Congregational Sunday School, to the number of over a hundred, had a jolly good time at the party given last nitcht in The Chronicle hall. They, had a splendid collation, and plays to their hearts content, en joying the occasion ever so much better than they would the prosy Christmas tree. Three serious accidents occurred to coasters in- Port Townsend the other night. One victim had his thigh bone broken, another suffered from a frac tured wrist, and the third escaped with severe and painful bruises. - Every snow fall in the western towns is attended with some such accident to careless ; coa8er8 . Eastern colleges, etc., are liberally provided.ior.by ; the-- millionaire. John D. VcockafelljKF has made another big do nation .to' the.. .University of Chicago. The sum is understood to be over $100, 000. Dartmouth college has also just received a bequest of $200,000 from the late Ralph Butterfield, M. D., of Kan sas City, Mo. Mr. f. a. rtower, who has many friends in this city, but who has been resident of Astoria for a number of years. was married in that city on the 17th to Miss Mabel, only daughter of P. W. Parker, editor of the Astorian. The bride was a compositor in the Astorian, where she had labored for several years. Both were well known and very popular in Astoria society. A farewell social party was given to Mips Clara Story by Miss Dasie Folsom, on leaving Pendleton for her home in The Dalles. Card-playing was followed by the ever-pleasant pastime of candy- pulling, and refreshments were then served. As a fitting finale to the even ing'e pleasure, the guests were taken ont for a merry sleigh -ride. The government has prepared to issue in January a complete new set of poet age stamps, commemorative of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. They will be called the "Columbus is sue," and will t the finest ever made by any government. They will be on sale at the various postoffices only dur ing the year of 1893, and then will be withdrawn from general issue. A gentleman of considerable influence in Portland business circles, who was laid up in The Dailes by the snow block ade down towards the centre of Wisdom, was asked to explain why it was that the U. P. R. Co. didn't send out a boat to take the passengers to Portland from Bonneville? The prompt answer was : "The U. P. R. Co. do not wish to recog nize the river in any way, shape or manner." That is about the size of it. We. are pleased to learn from an As toria dispatch that Messrs. W H. Rem ington, of Salt Lake, aud A. B. and W. W. Corev, of Ogden, Utah, contractors on the Astoria and Portland railway, arrived there in time to straighten up the affairs of the company. They have resumed work on the road in fulfillment of the terms of their contract with the subsidy guaranty company. Nothing definite could be given to the public as yet. - ; Vice-President Houston, of the Pacific Mail,- says the fight of the Panama rail road with the Pacific Mail in opposition to American interests will, , as , much aB anything else, be the means of building the Nicaragua canal. He says he is now in full sympathy with the work of build ing the canal. It ia announced officially that the president of the Nicaragua canal construction company ia carrying on negotiations with a syndicate of bankers looking to placing a large amount of the bonds of the company. j A cotemporary say a the official figures show that the portage "railway at the cascades is a decided success. It was put in operation in September, 1891, the nret receipts reported being $917.05 on November 4th, 1891. During the past year the total receipts were $7,030.91, and the total expenses $6,202.29, leav ing a balance of $837.62. The road has been a great benefit, giving to the farm ers a saving of six cents on every bushel of wheat shipped to Portland. An Episcopal cathedral, with pews forever free, is to be built in New York City at a cost of from five to ten million dollars. The corner-stone was laid yes terday. In' its national aspect the cathedral project -commands attention, on account of its aim and scope. Al ready: without any public appeal, and with very little individual solicitation, over $1,000 000 has been subscribed on bequeathed to the cathedral. One of I the first' and largest subscriptions was made by a Presbyterian. Speaking of the disaster between Bridal Veil and Latourelle, Supt. Bax ter says the water from the hills had undermined and washed away about 60 feet of a fill a mile and a half west of Bridal Veil, leaving the track suspended in the air. As there was snow on the ties, the engineer could not see the washout. A little after 9 p. m. the train came along. The engine crossed over the washout, but the mail, baggage and express cars went down into the gulch. The coaches stopped just as the front wheels of the first one went off the rail, and no one was hurt. A very stubborn fire occurred in Portland last night. The whole block of wooden buildings on East Alder and Union, lOOxfoO, occupied by the owner, E. J. Bruce as a furniture store, and others, including the Barker hotel, was destroyed. Losses $60,000. The fire ap peared to originate on the second floor in the rear of the hotel, preceded by a sort of explosion, as if a lamp had burst. The flames quickly spread above and in volved te upper portion of the three buildings, and the dense smoke poured upward from every quarter, indicating the presence of the fire throughout the building. Umatilla county stockmen have suf fered from thieves - considerably this winter, and the maximum of impu dence on the part of the robbers was reached Saturday evening when a strange cowbov rode into Umatilla and tied his horse in front of the hotel. For a time nothing was seen of him until he was noticed going from hotels to board ing houses taking orders for dressed beef. A. R. Jacks engaged a quarter of beef, but soon missed his valuable milch cow. His hired man went in search of it, and upon passing a vacant house, heard a cow bellowing. Going inside, he saw the lost animal awaiting its fate, surrounded by butcher tools of every description. The commercial cowboy, smelling a rat, very quickly mounted his horse and escaped. : How much better it would be all round, if the U. P. R. Co. officials had a standing order for employes to let the public know about matters which inter est the pnblic. The narrow escape of a passenger train from a 40-foot plunge at Columbus trestle this side of Grant, a broken rail having been discovered just in the nick of time and not one in stant to spare, wae what delaved the 4:20 p. m.- train yesterday. The train barked up to Grant, sent for a detail of section men who came and made the re pairs. But it was a very close call, and the waiting public had a perfect right to know the particulars. Just such a cir cumstance happened at Latourelle Monday night. A bridge went out un der the weight of the locomotive, bag gage and mail and express cars. The two cars went down with the bridge. The locomotive fortunately escaped, and it was providential thst Ithe passenger coaches kept the track. This accident delayed the train twenty-four houJs but not a word could be learned by those having friends on board, or by waiting passengers at the stations, when the facts properly belonged to the public to know, as the public were interested. A paragraph Is going the round s o the press which does the Inland Empire great injustice, especially just at this time, on the eve of the convening of the assembly, which it is expected will pro vide for a portage railway around the dalles obstruction. The paragraph in question reads as follows: "During the year 1890 the Oregon Railway and Navi gation company carried to Portland on its line in Oregon 45,000 tons of wheat and in 1891,50,000 tons. In 1890,776 carloads of sheep, cattle, hones and hogs uere Bhipped to Portland, and in the following year the number of car-J loads was increased to 793." The above figures are misleading. Sherman county alone, has shipped an aggregate equal to the' above sum, which leaves Baker, Union, Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, Crook and Wasco counties, to be beard from. Tbb Chboniclb gave the most reliable and authenticate figures on the 16th, for the period of eight years, show ing shipments of wheat alone aggregat ing z,hiu,uuu tons, which would present : the sum of over $525,000 at the price, 25 cents per ton transportation ; a sum ! more than equal to the coat of construe- j tion, equipment and operating expenses. of the road for the entire eight years, These matters should not be improperly represented, at thle time especially. ..Blakeley A Houghton, pharmacists, 175 Second street, have secured the ser- vices of Mr. A.

After a day spent in the snow and slush they returned with one lone and lank rabbit. Preparations for planting a hop field of 1,000 acres are being made in Gilliam county. Hop yards would be found to ' be paying investments at The Dalles. Why not? - Dr. Siddall is the happiest man in The Dalles today.
