Quite a number of tourist came up

Hums III Foot Kiwm-
A professional foot racer traveling un
der the name of II. Steven, arrived in
tow n on Tho Dalles stage last Thursday
morning, with the intention of lighting
onto a soft snap f which we are pretty
nearly sure he has done). Next day he
challenged E. M. Shutt, editor of this
paper, to run a 100-yard dash at An
telope on Monday, July 30th, for f.'iO u
side. The idea of running against a
professional foot racer aort o' took our
breath at first, but at tho solicitation of
our friend, we accepted hia challenge,
drew up and both signed articica of
agreement, and each deposited a forfeit
off '.'3 with W. Bolton. Stevens stands
(I feet and inch In his running Bhoe,
weigh 170 lb and has an ideal build
for a foot racer and nll-around athlete.
Shutt stands 5 feet, O'b, and weigh 143
lbs, (our lighting weight). The race
will take place a week from next Mon
day, July 30th, at 3 :It0 o'clock and there
will no doubt be a good sued crowd out
to see the Antelope "puddin' " get
snowed under. Antelope Herald.
A gold watch, between Dulur aud The

liberally rewarded by leaving the same

At live minute past 8 o'clock Friday
night Charles E. Haight dropped dead
in Kiueraly' drugstore. He bad lt-n
rowing on the river in company with
Mr. Mohr, and came directly from the
river to the drngxtore. He had bis coat
over hia arm and after talking a moment
to Mr, Kineraly and Frank Clarke went
to the back end of the store where there
la a box with ahoe-blacking and a brush,
laid hia coat on a pile of wall paper, and
prepared to black hia shoe. In a
inomet Kineraly and Clarke heard a fall,
and Charley Clarke called them, saying
Mr. Haight had fallen. Charley waa
near him and looking at him w hen he
fell. Mr. Haight bad gono to the box
and aa he reached it began to atagger,
fell over against the counter catching it
with both bands and in a few seconds
turned over to the right and fell on his
back. Dra. Sutherland nnd Doane were
both near tho atore and came hurriedly
in, the latter after momentary exam
ination prepared and administered a
hypodermic injection of digitaline, fol
lowing it with one of brandy. In the
meanwhile Dr. Sutherland had opened
his shirt and found but a faint fluttering
of the heart, with a scarcely discernablo
pulse. The blood waa running from bis
month, and to give him a better chance
to breathe he waa turned on bis side,
but after a gasp or two be was dead.
The body waa taken to Michell'a under
taking rooms and prepared for burial,
Rev. Whisler and Dr. Hollister In the
meanwhile informing us gently aa jkiss'i
ble, Mra. Haight of the sad bereavement
that bad fallen npon her. The little
lady tore up bravely and if the sympathy
of the entire community can avail to
lighten the blow, it surely is hers.
Deceased was SK years of age, of a
joviul, kindly disposition, and leaves in
numerable friends to mourn bis sudden
taking off. He w as a member of Friend
ship lodge, K. of P. and waa buried
according to the ceremonies of that'
At the Caftt-atlm.
A' gentleman who was at Cascade
Locks Saturday made a pretty thorough
examination of the portage road and the
locks. He tells us the road is not seri
ously damaged and that a thousand dol
lars will put it in good repair. The
lower incline, or a part of it, floated, but
aa it waa in an eddy, all the timbers and
rails drifted back into the canal, and
were not lost. The Day Bros, have re
paired a iortion of the road, so they are
now running their cara aa far down as
the lower end of the lock. It is thought
that the end of the incline at the boat
landing ia etill in place.
The damage to the locks Las l-cn
greatly over-estimated. A short piece
of the north guard wall haa gone out,
and some of the masonry near the
mouth of the canal in the north aide
w aa undermined and fell over into the
canal. At the lower end, from the
steps on the south wall to the lower
break water, the rip-rap got water
aoaked and slid down. Major Post says
that no more dry wall will be laid, and
the rip-rap will be replaced by solid
masonry. About fifty stone cutters are
at work, and a large number of men are
at work on the wall getting it ready to
lay the coping. The work will be prose
cuted vigorously, and every man that
can be used will be put at work just as
fast as the receding waters will permit.
The Kali Uaine.
The Dalles ball players met those from
Hood River yesterday at the fair
grounds, and at the same time met de
feat. Hood River winning by a score of
twenty-three to eight. Hood River baa
some excellent timber for a ball club
and though they have played but three
practice games, put up fairly good ball.
The Dalles ooys are about in the same
condition there being good ball players
individually, but they are certainly far
from being a good team. They have not
played together and have no discipline.
Dr. Brosiua, who came up aa chief
mentor for the Hood River club, is an
enthusiast on athletic sports and ia
anxious to organize a circuit, where in a
spirit of friendly and generoua rivalry
the young men can meet to battle for
victory, develop their muscles and
broaden their ideas. The intention ia to
include football and a wheelmen's club.
The idea is a good one and we hope will
bo taken up by our people, Difur, An
telope, Moro, Wasco, Goldeudale, Cen
tnrville and other neighboring towns.
The Dalles boys, we understand, will
meet tonight for the purpose of getting
up a team and as there ia abundance of
material, we can assiiro our Hood River
frienda, that when they ogain crosa bats
with them, they will have to play ball.

One hundred and sixty-six climbers

Eighty-four others failed to reach the

account of the storm.
The Muzamas organized on the sum

in sij;ht were Mts. Jefferson, Thielsen,
Shasta, Three Sisters, Adams, Rainier
and St. Helens. They could see the
Columbia river below Portland, and
Eastern Oregon to the Blue mountains.

bus just received the sad intelligence of
her mother's death, Mrs. Anne Marie
Basche, who died June 13th, 1S91, at the
residence of Iter son, A. Basche, Green
Biiv, Wisconsin. From the Green Bay
Advocate ;ve copy the following:
"Mrs Basche wus a native of Europe,
being of Franco-Prussian birth, was bom
October 4th, 1801, and was therefore
nearly 'JO years of age. With her hus
band, Joseph Basche. of military record,
she emigrated to this country some fifty
two years Hgo and has since made Green
Bay her home. Her husband, a promi
nent cilir.cn of this place, died many
yeara ago, but she was possessed of a
wonderful vitality and was never ser
iously rick, until within three mouth
other death, when her physiciul and
mental faculties gradually failed until
he peacefully sank to her eternal rest.
She waa of noble birth, also being a de
scendant of ancestors distinguished in
great military record, musical fame and
literature. She waa a most estimable
lady, and, being pose?ied of a truly
lovable disposition and charitable na
ture, waa greatly loved by all who knew
her. Her surviving children are a
follow: Mra. C. Stella Juker, formerly
of The Dalles, Oregon, Hon A. Basche,
M. and Fred W. Basche, prominent
citienaof thia place, and Ex-Mayor P.
Basche, one of the wealthiest mine
owners of Baker City, Oregon. She also
leavea 2S grandchildren and 20 great
grandchildren. She was a faithful
member of the Catholic church and the
funeral occurred Sunday afternoon from
the cathedral, which was larpely at
tended. The floral tributes were very
beautiful and numerous, the pall bear
er being Hon. Joseph Fohrmann, Matt
Miller, Nicholaa Miller, P. F. Schu
macher, C. Kaster and 8. Landwehr."
A Hollar la tha Wallet.
Went Coat Trwlc.
The stars they thine aerener and with
greater luminosity when a fellow isn't
struggling with hia impecuniosity. The
lofty aky ia bluer and the meadow graas
ia greener, and the ilia of life are fewer,
and our life itself serencr ; and we feel a
glorious courage and the fates cannot
appall it when we feel the solid backing
of a dollar in our wallet.
Oh, the quiet air of twilight is more
brightly lurniniferous, and the Incense
from the flowers ia more sweet and odor
iferous; and the zephyrs blow more
sweetly and our food ia more nutritious,
and we're conecious more completely
tat our breakfast is delicious; and we
feel that life'a no fizzle, as the pessimists
miscall it, when we have'the satisfaction
of a dollar in our wallet.
All our woes are less appalling and
our joys are less ambiguous, and all
life's happy meadows are ao lush-like
and irriguous; for a glass of pure, cold
phoaa tastes aa eweet as balm of Gilead,
and brown bread is like ambrosia Homer
tells of in the Iliad ; and we feci that
life's a poem tnaugre what the cynics
call it, and we feel supremely blessed
with a dolar in our wallet.
Tnt Like His White Brother.
Lo, the poor Indian, was up before bis
honor Recorder Dufur this, morning
charged with filling hia dusky and
musky hide entirely too full of the pale
faced brother'scoflin-varnish. The dark
brown flavor of his breath, matching so
prettily with his complexion, had re
mained with him all night, and was
present at the time he appeared to
plead. His cavernous eyes and noble
mien, failed to awaken a responsive
chord in the judicial bosom of hia judge
who fined him five dollars, lie took it
stoically, not the five dollars, but the
fine, and as he inserted his right band
under bis left brachium and gave five
distinct digs with hia fingers to impress
the amount on his mind, and also to re
lieve a temporary annoyance caused by
a personal friend of his, the marshal
hustled hiin from the thisness of the
now into the henceneea of the elsewhere.
He looked sad, for the sacred fires with
in had burned low, but the proud
stoicism of his race, and tbe briefness
of his English vocabulary, forbade him
making any protest. He waa broke,
and also broke to lead, and so he un

The Inland Star did not get to the
Cascades yesterday, having met a heavy
breeze at Wind mountain, and being
unable to make head against tbe rough
sea, tied up at 13 Mile point for the
night. It was a loolith trip, and the
gentleman who claimed to be so near
the president of the road and all its
officers that all he had to do waa to tele
graph and have a train of Pullmans,
and who also knew all about the river.
and so persuaded hia fellow passengers
into the scheme, ia no doubt prepared to
receive a vote of thanks and a leather
medal. The Inland Star and Irma are
all right for pleasure lioata, but for use
on the middle Columbia they are too
small and have too little power.
The Railroad Situation.
The railroad between this jint and
Rufus ia nearly in running order again
and it ia expected that truing will be
running over it either tonight or to
morrow. Between here and the Cas
cades every point on the road where it
'm possible to put men to work ia being
put in shape and a week or two will
complete tho temporary repairs so that
the road w ill be passable. The greatest
difficulty encountered is in getting tho
piling. From the Cascades the road ia
repaired up to Shell Rock, tho trestle
acroe the creek lxttom beyond Mosier
is about completed, and ut Hood River
the work is being pushed rapidly.
