THE DALLES WEEKLY CHRONICLE, FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1893. The Weekly Chronicle, FALSE REWRTS. 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 any longer; 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. Locally, the money market is easier I than it was a month ago; collections! has retrenched and been trenched iiwn again, but we are dead to the agony Nothing ran stir up the cockles of our heart, or cause a single hair to stand on end short of a scissors trust or a gum arabic combine. The Languedoc ship canal, in France, by a short passage of MS miles, saves a sea voyage of 2,000 miles by the Straits of (iihraltar. The office seeker Is the unri states man, and theenances of his being nipped in the bud are numerous and painful. MARKET REPORT. 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, and in Russia, 5. Thee are not offered as temperance statistics, because 'neer is not the principal drink in all coun tries. The Bussians are not a beer drinking people, nor are they an especi ally temperate nation. 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.

At this season of the year a million and a half of dollars are usually disbursed. As an illustration of the accuracy with which the new fast trains K-tu n Chi cago and New York keep to t!ie iijiunv- !' time card, a writer in t.ie Chi cago Herald tells of the meeting of X t two exposition trains on tiie Lake Siior.' railroad in the course of the first run : "At 11 :55 o'clock Sunday night, when No. 10 had just flashed past Kipley 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 former quotations and have a fair de mand lor home use.

Some old bus might le picked up at quotations, but no one believes that new wools will command any such figures as are now quoted. Shearing is going on in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and some idea of w hat the new wools are worth will be known soon. Medium clothing and combing wisila are dull and nominal in price. Delaine fleeces appear to be closely old out and quotations are nom inal. Unwashed and unmerchantable fleeces are dull, and sales ruling are mostly at inside quotations.
