THE DALLES WEEKLY CHRONICLE, FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1893.
The Weekly Chronicle,
Rev. Whisler, who claims the Ohio
Wealeyan university its his alma mater,
has been shocked at the late sensational
rorl8 concerning the hazing of girl
students, and leaves the following state
ment from the faculty, as published in
the Christian Advocate, whieh contra
dicts the Associated Press reports:
The report that the young ladies have
engaged in hazing is not true. There
has never been a simile case of hazing
among the girls of the college. One
evening some girls foolishly nmrueu
themselves and three or four of their
schoolmates with burnt cork and chalk
One of the girls had a two ter rent solu
tion of nitrate of silver, which had been
procured at a drug store. She tested it
on her own arm and found that it left a
slight stain, but was perfectly harmless
Four of the girls were slightly market!
in the palms of the hands and on their
wrists with this solution. This, how
ever, was not done against the will of
anyone. Two of the girls washed off the
solution that night, and it did not leave
the slightest mark. The other two left
the solution on over night, and were nn
able to wash it off the next morning be
fore breakfast. On their wav to the col
lege grounds to recite they stopped at
a drug store and asked the druggist to
remove the nitrate, which he did with
out any pain and without leaving anv
mark. No young woman at this college
baa ever received any bodily injury
from another student'; nor litis anv
young woman in connection with this
matter been guiltv of conduct toward
another student which the parents of
either party would disapprove.
The action of these students lias in
flicted disgrace upon the university,
upon themselves, and been a cause of
great mortification to their relatives.
They are deserving of little sympathy.
We have a perennial sympathy with
youthful energy, activity and high
spirits. Nor do we oppose practical
jokes if they regard the rights of prop
erty, person, and reputation, and do not
infract decency. Ingenious and ingen
uous minds will have no trouble in in
venting practical jokes within the
limits of nioralitv and refinement.
CAUSE OF HARD TIMES.
In a country like the United States,
where famine is never known and good
crops are the rule; where no standing
army, to speak of, is maintained at an
immense cost to the taxpayers; where
the per cent of crime is small ; whore
resources are unparalleled and wages
are uniformlv cood. It is a matter 01
be made Inoperative. K they succeed
In all these small jobs they may turn
their attention to the eradication of vol
canic outbursts in Japan, and to con
fining the orbit of comets to their own
system and not be heavenly vagabonds
We are fast growing impervious to
calamity. The "gold reserve" has been
surprise that such widespread hard times j trenched upon and has retrenched, and
can exist. The causes are difficult to
The city council at their lust meeting
inaugurated a system of sanitation that,
if perhaps heroic, is one of the wisest
measurers ever attempted by that body
of men. The stench of outhouses in the
summer time has been a nuisance fur
many years, and one of the most pro
lific causes of disease. Typhoid fever,
diptheria, two of the severest diseases
known to mankind, are nearly always
traceable to polluted air and water,
caused by carelessness on the part of
citizens. Scarlet fever, small pox and
allied contagious diseases are better and
more thouroughly perpetuated when
gamage ana uecaving vegetation are
thrown anywhere, and when open water
closets are alio ved to exist in thickly-
populated portions of the town. In
stances are plentiful where otherwise
admirable citizens have been indifferent
to laws they knew existed and occasion
al specific orders, asking them to con
nect their privies with the sewers, which
would have been but a trifling expense.
Bach people, and all others who are now
directly to 1 asked to remedy these de
fects will do so uncomplainingly, since
they are aware, as well as others, that
their course has not been one for the
best interests of the general welfare.
assign, being almost as varied as there
are exponents to assign them. The
republicans say the universal stringency
is due to the anticipated lowering of the
tariff, while the democrats as persist
etitlv claim that the tariff as it now ex
ists, has brought the present troubles
upon us ; the labor leader assures us that
the centralization of capital is alone re
sponsible; the religious bigot that Jusu
its are a tremendously disturbing cause.
No conditiou, fancied or real, escapes
the reasoning of some men as being di
rectly responsible for the present strin
gency. The silver lining to the dark
cloud ib found in the fact that its sud
den appearance may be as quickly dis
pelled. If the Sherman Act Is unwise,
as it now seems to be almost univer
sally conceded, it will not take long to
repeal it, as congress meets again in Sep
tember. Our resources are so vast and
varied that a few millions one way or the
other cut no figure ,in a national sense.
The next congress will certainly legis
late in a manner to ease the existing
condition of affairs. If they legislate at
all they will do so. The uncertainty as
to just what they will do is the most
palpable cause of alarm, on the princi
ple that it is the unknown which terri
fies. It is not likely that the new con
gress will do anything nearly so sweep
ing as the democratic platform, taken
literally, would require. Most men,
even among the democrats, do i ot favor
free trade to the extent as there stated.
There will vet be ample protection on
all commodities that need it.

Thubsuay, June 8. The tone of busi
ness for the past week has !een quiet.
0erations in most departments of the
merchandise market has been more of a
hand to mouth character than for some
time. I'riees have been maintained
throughout all lines. Money has been
firm, although ts easier in tone than
reported a week ago. Collections were
more satisfactory and deposits larger,
ilusiness, while somewhat quiet, is con
ducted on a more satisfactory basis.
The credit system has been, to a large
degree, curtailed, and consequently a
healthier condition prevails in all cir
cles, the produce market is quite
steady. Straw berries are coming in
freely, and with a good demand (or ex
iort, prices ranue from 10 to 12 cents
per box crated, (iooseuerries are in
fair supply at "' cents per gallon. New
potatoes and green hmb are in fair sii
ply. Other garden vegetables are plen
tiful and prices are nominal.
A Frenchman states that there are
61,000 breweries in the world. Germany
easily leads with 26,240, which produce
4,750 million litres of beer yearly, a litre
being equal to about l?4 pints. Eng
land comes next with 12,874 breweries
and an output of 2,600 million litres;
then the United States with 2,1500 brew
eries and 3,500 million litres ; Austria
with 1,942 breweries and 1,300 million
litres ; Belgium, with 1,2!0 breweries and
1,000 million litres, and France with
1,044 breweries and 8U0 million litres.
In Bavaria the annual allowance of beer
of the population is 221 litres; in Berlin,
101 ; in Belgium, 169; in England, 143;
in fcwiUerland, 3i ; in Denmark, 'J3;
in the United States, 31 ; in Sweden. 1 1,

The laat number of the Goldendale
Sentinel bears no comparison to its im
mediate predecessors. The adolescent
youth wtio has been promoted to the
less arduous duties of the composing
room fired his parting shot at the direct
ors of the paper upon which lie was
working In the last issue of May, and
Hugh (Jourlay, well known in Wasco
county, as a man of education and dis
cernment, and withal an incisive writer,
took charge of the tripod. The Sentinel
has acquired at a single leap all it could
rain in twenty years by the slow process
ai educating its youthful editor through
the fiery ordeal of competitive comment.
While our neighboring state across
the river is suffering financial reverses,
and the closing of banks are a daily oc
currence, no bank failure will be re
ported from Oregon. From dispatches
it has been learned that Portland banks
are thoroughly sound and can stand any
draft, sudden or long-continued, and the
same can be said of all banks throughout
the state. Oregon today is better pre
pared with ready cash than any other

The greatest cause for the coinrestion

Crossing exactly on time. Western Pas
senger Agent Wilber of the Lake Shore
quietly remarked : 'Gentlemen, we pass
No. 41 in exactly two minutes. Won't
you step to the back platform and see
it?' With every nerve strained, the
members of the party huddled into the
rear vestibule. 'We pass her in thirty
seconds,' said Mr. Wilber, stop watch
in hand. The confidence of the man
was sublime. He had received no word
from No. 41, not even that it had started
from New York. 'In twenty seconds,'
said Mr. Wilber, as calmly as if merely
reading bis watch-dial. Not a man in
the party doubted the statement. 'In
ten seconds,' spoke the prophetic voice,
and that tingling, hair-lifting sensation
is paid. Oats and barley are fine at
