The heavy snowfall so early in the
season is rare. Iietween the hours of
1 o'clock last night and 7 this morning
there was an average depth in The
Dalles of ten inches, later reaching
twelve and a precipitation of 1.03 inches.
The depth at Hood River is 17 inches
but at the Cascades much less. No per
ceptible offort in traffic is apparent,
though the heavy full in the Blue
mountains, about four feet, will un
doubtedly delay trains which are now in
that vicinity. The weather at present
is variable, though indications point to
warmer weather, when a bright sun
shining out from blue sky will rapidly
dissolve the "beautiful." However the
Portland forecast for the next twenty
four hours calls for more snow.

no vote, have an undoubted influence in

1 The doctor speaks very highly of the
j world's fair and was present at its clos
I ing. He also availed himself of the op
portunity of visiting many of the leading
dentists and colleges in Canada and the
United States, and obtained many new
and useful appliances pertaining to den
tistry, and brought with him an entirely
new invention for making the cast alumi
num plate work which is now all the
rage in the east. The doctor has made a
specialty of this beautiful work for the
past four years, and claims to be the only
one who has ever made a success of it on
the Pacific coast.
A K-vival of Mood Times.
The Chronicle has it from reliable
authority that on the first of the month
loaning agencies in Portland will have
plenty of money to loan on good security.
This will mainly come from the east,
which is already experiencing easier
times. Investment is being sought and
money has come out from its hiding
places and good city and county bonds
are being eagerly sought as investment.
This money will find ready employment,
and will be used for improvements, pay
ment of debts, etc., and thus reaching
the channels of trade, our monetary
stringency will soon beat an end. It
is safe to say that spring will see a re
vival of good times, and the vast army
of the idle will for the most part again
Orrfnn at the Midwinter.
Senator Steiwer and others report to
the Telegram that they are in favor of
transferring the unexpended balance of
money used for the world's fair to the
use of the midwinter exposition at San
Wishing to gain the opinion of our
representatives, a Chronicle reporter
conferred with Hon. E. N. Chandler upon
the subject, who said : "Most assuredly,
I am heartily in favor of spending the
balance at the midwinter exposition,
which is really but a continuation of the
world's fair. I am in favor of spending
every dollar of it at San Francisco."
Hon. T. R. Coon of Hood River has
not yet been heard from, but it is very
probable he will be of the same opinion.
Those who are best acquainted with him
here say there is no doubt but that he
is of the same sentiment and will
heartily endorse this use of the tied -tip
balance of the appropriation.

F.arly this week a blast was set off at
j Cascades which resulted In considerable
damage, and the discharge of the one
who engineered it, though luckily no
fatality occurred. Onehundred and fifty
pounds of giant powder had been placed
in the canal, at different points
which were tet off simultaneously
by electricity. A tremendous upheaval
resulted. A body of earth and rocks
containing many thousand cubic yards
was thrown into the nir and the whole
vicinity shook w ith the force of the ex
plosion. The glass was shattered in the
commissary department, and one huge
rock crashed through the roof of the en
gineer's house in the canal. It is
thought by some that a part of the charge
was placed in a natural crevice of which
the operator was ignorant, rendering a
much less quantity of powder sufficient
for the purpose. At any rute the manager
of the blast was discharged, and the
general shaking up will render his suc
cessor more careful in the execution of
this part of the work.

three-quarters of a mile. There is an
inexhaustible quantity of it and as it is
the first well defined ledge to be found
in this section, should be very valuable.

The grand Thandsgiving ball given by
the Mignonettes last night was the
social event thus fur this season.
Whether it was l)ecanse of a general tie
sire to honor the governor's appointed
Thanksgiving, or because of the popu
larity of the mirth-loving and mirth
creating Mignonettes themselves, it is
certain that a great number of people
availed themselves of the opportunity to
"trip the light fantastic" under their
auspices. The decorations were superb,
WingHte hall is spacious, but the walls
were completely covered with a wealth
of evergreen and the national colors
shone with brilliancy en every hand.
The numerous large American flags,
gracefully draped in all parts of the
building, gaye a thoroughly patriotic air
to the festivities fitting to the event.
The music was the Birgfeld orchestra,
which is all that need tie said as to its
merit. All the conditions were favorable
for a grand good time and this the Mig
nonettes and their invited guests cer
tanly enjoyed. Dancing was continued
until aliout 2 o'clock, and then the gay
revelers dispersed for their homes. The
beautiful decorations will probably be
left to do duty for the Chrysanthemum
club, if they conclude to give a dance on
Cleveland's Thanksgiving night.
