police investigation committee resumed
work today. Among the crowd that
gathered today iu the court were several
police captains whose faces had not been
seen there before.
Warden Ledwith of the io!iee court
prison told the committee about certain
abuses in those institutions which he
was investigating. General Forget of
the French steamship line, testified that
his company has paid $500 to the police
for extra services. Policeman on the
pier were paid $19 a week, and $500
went to other police officers. One of the
company's books was produced, showing
that in Nov. 1891, $"00 had been paid for
"sieciul service on the pier."
Mr. Goff asked if l'olicemati Dcgan
had been removed from the pier because
he refused to devide with the captain
the money he received.
Policeman Degan tentilied he was
stationed on the F rench line pier for ten
years and the company paid him $10
week for working overtime and on his
days off. In 1HU1 Wardsman Vail told

saying he was already paying the cap

want his whole salary. He was prompt

Today's attendance ut the fair wna
much IxHter than that of yesterday.
The good weuther continue, and the
good roads accounted for the presence of
quite a number of country people.
Many carriages, with their occupants,
were lined along the fence of the track ;
the grand stand was well filled, and al
together the ight was much better than
The Hock sheds and ela'is are full of
premium-takers. Some fine animals
are to be seen by walking among the
stock. Mr. Uobt. Kelly, our genial
deputy nheriff, has some imported stal
lions, w hich are noble-looking animals.
Montfred and Verney, 4-year-olds, are
entered in the sweepstakes for perche
rous. He also has, in the class of
graded draft animals, two mare?,
Bluet and Dell, and one stallion
named Kingaley. In the cattle exhibit
are found under Mr. Kelly's name, one
Devon bull, 3 years, one breeding cow,
one beiier and one bull calf. Mr.
Kelly's exhibit is a very fine one and
calls forth much interest.
Sheriff Driver keeps tip his end by a
good exhibit of cattle. They comprise
one thort hoin bull, 4 years old, one
short horn cow, 14 years, one calf, 3
weeks, one yearling heifer, (short horn),
one Devon bull, one Devon cow, one
mare and colt.
Truman Butts has a very nice exhibit
of some DunrcK-k pigs, 5 months old,
three Guinea fowls, two bronxe turkeys,
three geese, and 1 half-blood Jersey cow.
Owing to lack of space in today's issue a
more extended notice of the stock will
have to wait till tomorrow.
The first race today was a 'g mile and
repeat. The first heat was run by Blue
Jay, Jim Crow second, Tampa 3rd,
Kockland Boy 4th, time 27J. The re
mainder of the races will be told in to
morrow's Chkonicle. The entries for
the pony race are Nailer, entered by A.
Alien ; Nelly Illy, entered by ChaB.
Snelling; Tommy, by J. T. Drepps; Pet,
by T. Maloney, and Celilo, by A. Allen.
The pavilion opened its doors to the
public at 5 p. m. yesterday. In the
evening, when the large arc lights were
turned on, the building presented a
brilliant appearance. Nearly all the
space is taken, and more exhibits are
continually arriving. The crowd was
not so large as the management ex
pected, but the first night is cot usually
the best one, and it is confidently ex
pected the tucceeding nights will see
the pavilion filled, as it should be, with
interested spectators. The orchestra
dispensed sweet music, and added fresh
laurels to its already full crown. Lavit-h
as may the praise be, too much cannot
lie said appreciative of the music. The
selections were of a high order and ren
dered with a grace and expression that
placed the orchestra bevond the limits
that mark the amateur. The Dalles is
fortunate, unusually so, in having in its
midst such an organization that is a
source of so much pleasure to all lovers
of the harmonies of music. Our orches
tra should be given every encourage
ment, and those who pay the price of
admission can lie sure of receiving fully
their money's worth. The program for
this evening is as follows:
Among the exhibits which came in
during the afternoon is a beautiful col
lection of painted china ware from the
hand of Miss Besse Lang. This exhibit
is much admired, and justly so, and
each piece shows skillful work.
Mrs. Barrett receives much praise for
her collection of oil paintings. They
make an impression of which she may
well be proud. Two were especially
noticeable, one a paintingof the "Mount
of the Holy Cross," the other a marine,
showing a brilliant sunset at sea, with a
steamer passing a rocky headland upon
which the surf is dashing.
Mis. C. F. Stephens has a nice ex
hibit of paintings, some oil and some
water colors.
Two tables, neatly set and covered
with jars of preserves form the exhibit
of Mrs. Dr. Shackelford. They look
very inviting for a feast.
Mrs Happner and Miss Heppner have
some pretty studies in oil on exhibition,
whtch are possessed of much merit.
Mrs. J. Wycke and Mrs. Byrne have
an exhibition of canned fruits, jellies
and preserves, their first venture in this
branch of culinary art. They certainly
are good beginners.
Farmer Southwell has some bee-hives,
which show the bees making honey.
The Diamond Mills have a pyramid of
flour, which shows the product of East
ern Oregon and Washington hills and
valleys made ready to I shipped
Mr. I'.inil Schanno has a variety of
ligs, which shows for what varied fruits
our climate is adapted.
lien Southwell has quite a numlier of
l.-oxes containing dried fruit. He also
shows some whopper sunflowers and
different varieties of grains.
W. J. Davidson, who lives on 8-Mile
creek, brought in a large assortment of
potatoes, big fine-looking fellows.
Around a pillar he has placed speci
mens of wheat, barley, oats, and other
grains, which show better than words
could of Wa?co's productiveness.
Mr. Horn, from Thompson's Addition,
shows some luscious grapes, which grew
in that locality.
Mr. Cooper, another of Dry Hollows
successful farmers, shows some fine
bunches of grapes.
One corner of the pavilion is devoted
to the display of II. L. Kuck. A fine
array of saddlery and harness outfits
make a neat exhibit.
YLbTEKDAY'S backs.
It took a long time to start the horses
in the fim race yesterday and the crowd
was getting rather impatient, but when
the flag did fail and the horses went
away in a bunch one of the prettiest
races followed that was ever seen on any
race tract. Tho entries were Powder,
Jim Crow, Blue Jay, Grover and Sir
Henry. In the mutuals Jim Crow was a
hot favorite with Powder second choice.
The race was a quarter dash. Each
horse, as all passed the grand stand in
warming up, seemed in the pink ot con
dition. Much delay was experienced in
starting. Four would generally get
away all right but one would lag behind
and spoil the start. Finally the word
was given and away they went all in a
bunch. As they rounded into the home
stretch Powder was in the lead and
seemed to have the race but Blue Jay
took the whip and forged ahead till they
came under the wire neck and neck, so
close together were they and to anyone
not directly in line with judge's stand
neither one seemed ahead. The judges
decided in favor of Blue Jay, much to
the satisfaction of those who bought on
the field and to the chagrin of Powder's
backers. The order of winning was:
Blue Jay, Powder, Jim Crow, Grover
and Sir Henry, time 24?4' Beconds. The
mutuals paid 6. To all lovers of a good
race this performance gave great satis
faction. They were all out for blood
and not a shadow of doubt existed but
what every horse was urged to his beet.
Kight here it may be stated that a great
spirit of fairness mark the entire conduct
of the f:ir. Thero is no jockying nor
semblance of anything crooked and any
one w ho eii joys a contest of striving for
mastery, whether in man or brute, will
le well pleased with tho races at this
season's fair.
The second eve:it was the ?8' mile
dash. Four horses were entered : Token,
I Don't Know, Chester G. and Volta.
In the mutuals I Don't Know sold as
the favorite, with Token as second
choice. This race was also a very pretty
one and had the added merit of little de
lay at the post. I Don't Know won by a
length, Token second, Volta third and
Chester G. at the rear; time, 1.03,34
Volta finished second under the wire
but vhs set back to third place on
account of a foul.
Tburaday'a Dully.
The third day was more windy than
the previous one but the attendance was
fully as large. The stock exhibit in the
southwest corner is attracting a great
deal of attention, and between the races
the animals are visited by large numbers
of people. We bad promised to give a
more extended mention today of the
different stock exhibits, but the press of
matter has compelled it to wait till to
morrow along w ith the resume of today's
races. A large attendance is looked for
Friday and The Chkonicle hopes to see
the grand stand full of spectators.
yehtekday's hacks.
The races yesterday were fully as in
teresting as those of the day previous.
The trotting race proved a drawing card
and was witnessed by a larger crowd.
The horses were of a high class and
many expected the trotting record for
this track to be beaten. The second
heat on the mile and repeat was won
by Tampa; Jim Crow second, Blue Jay
third and Kockland Boy fourth; time,
37' seconds. As both Blue Jay and
Tampa had won a heat, another one was
necessary to decide the race. The horses
were evenly matched and the race was a
hot one from start to finish. Tampa
won ; time, 3834.
The pony race excited much interest
especially among the youngsters on the
ground. There were threo entries Pet,
Tommy and Ce llo. The horse carrying
the lightest weight won after a close
rai-e. Pet first, Celilo second and Tommy
The mile trot, best three in five, was
the event of the day and held the crowd
till nearly dark. Montana, Humrock
and Carle Carne were the entries and
they are all speeders w ith fast records.
Carle Carne was the favorite in tho
mutuals and took the lead and held it to
the fioibh, although hard pressed ut
lifferent times by both Hamrock and
Montana. Montana is a fast horse,
probably the fastest of the three, but
not having on the proper harness broke
badly and lost the race. Carle Carne
won three heats, Hamrock second and
Montana third ; time 2.40, 2.:).S'.j, 2.30.
The attendance was good ut the pa
vilion last evening, and much praise
was heard on all sides for the beauty of
the exhibit. Much space that was va
cant has been filled, and the whole dis
play can now be called complete. We
are sorry more of our merchants have
not taken room and made displays.
Only three or four of.our stores are rep
resented, and there should be a much
greater number. This annual fair has
become a great thing in the life of The
Dalles, and could be made of much more
vital interest and profit if our people
generally would take a heartie interest.
The ladies of The Dalles come in for a
word of praise for the liberal manner in
which they have risen to the occasion.
The art exhibit, including fancy work,
embroideries and needle work, is the
finest ever eeen in The Dalles, and we
know of no town that can do equally as
well. Some of the work would hold its
own anywhere, and under any competi
tion. The farmers have not sent in
their contributions as we would have
liked to have seen them do. Mr.
Schanno, who is an authority on such
matters, says the fruit and vegetable
exhibit should be much larger. Our
citizens are glad to look at the different
products from the farms, and the farm-
erg can be sure their efforts will receive
a hearty appreciation.
The music last evening was up to the
high standard we have come to expect
of it. Each piece was heartily received,
amid many expressions of praise. The
program did not contain quite as many
popular melodies as the one of the pre
vious evening, but they were all ren
dered in spleudid style. Following is
this evening's program :
Among the new exhibits wo noticed
was a pan of ripe strawberries from the
garden of J. H. Stadleman. They
looked as rosy and luscious as though it
were springtime.
Mrs. John Filloon shows some beauti
ful oil painting, which attract much at

"Hurd Times," is a picture of much ex
pression and feeling, and is readily

Mrs. G. C. B'akeley bus some, very
pretty specimens of embroidery work
and painting on silk.
A piece of embroidery by Lena Nyhus,
a 14-yeur-old girl, shows much skill for
one so young.
Miss Alice Hall, iu charge of the Kin
dergarten, has an exceedingly choice ex
hibit of Houiton point lace work.
Some plain hand sewing by Mrs. T.
S. Lang is very interesting, as it shows
something different from the luce work,
which seems to predominate.
There is a tobacco exhibit by B'.-n
Southwell, which shows how well the
"weed" would grow in this climate.
Mr. Southwell is one of the most effi
cient aides in the success of the fair.
Marshal Hill, Itobt. Cooper and Dave
Creighton have each exhibits of water
melons, muskmelons and vegetables.
Frank Kramer haa some FVyptian
rye, which is plump and undoubtedly a
fine variety.
An exhibit of hops by Max Vogt
proves how well they would grow in this
vicinity. They were grown on Mr.
Vogt's farm, some fifteen miles from
Mrs. J. C. Woixl has a fine array ol
canned fruits, joiliea and vegetables.
Mrs. Snipes, Mrs. Chase, Mrs. Niel
sen, Miss Southwell, Mrs. Wood, Mrs.
Wycke and Mrs. P. Morgan have all
samples of bread. Some have also cukes
entered, which look tempting enough.

J. P. Mclnerny's fine horse Rockland
Boy had its leg broken yesterday in the
second heat of the . mile and repeat,

fully 1Iiiimm1 across, his foot dangling
loosely from a broken joint. The damage
was done on the turn into the home
stretch, but just how it occurred Is a
mystery. Some think the horse's hoof
struck a small stone und turned, but an
examination of the track found no stones
that would cause such an occurence.
The jockey's explanation was that the
foot was twisted by being placed too
much at an angle in turning. Rockland
Boy was far in the lead as the horso
swung into the last stretch and everyone
thought it was his race. As it was the
animal shoved fine grit in running a
quarter of a mile in such a damaged
condition. As soon as possible ho was
taken to tho stable and nn examination
made by Dr. Long, the owner of Mon
tana and a veterinary surgeon of merit,
pronounced the break to be between the
ankle and the hoof and believed that it
could be set. With the help of some of
tho attendants he quickly brought the
horse into position and placed the leg in
bandages. The horse never flinched
during the operation and this morning
seems free from pain. Rockland Boy
was owned by J. P. Mclnerny, of this
city, and was a great favorite on the cir
cuit, especially at The Dalles. He wag
nine years old and had won many races.
If he hadn't been hurt yesterday he
would probably have added one more to
the number, but he will never again
pass nnder the wire in a contest. In the
same heat, Chester G belonging lo S. E.
Ferris, also received a strain inthe front
foot, which will put him in the horse
hospital for some time. His injury is
not believed to be very serious and Mr.
Ferris thinks he will recover and be in
good condition.
Siretta won the 1st heat, Chester G
2nd, Rockland Boy 3rd ; Little Joe 4th,
time 52 seconds. In the second heat
Siretta agaiu was the winner; Little
Joe 2nd; Chester G 3rd; Rockland Boy
4th. Time, 52 seconds. Puree $175.00.
The saddle race was for horses
owned in this county and limited
to "amateurs" only. The purse
was $50 and the entries were T. J.
Driver's horee Morgan; Red Weasel,
owned by J. P. Boen of Wapinitia and
Nola G, belonging to S. E. Ferris of The
Dalles. The horses went off on a good
start and swung into the homestretch
nearly even. Then Morgan went ahead
and seemed to have the race, when sud
denly Nola G forged ahead, Morgan
second and Red Weasel third ; time, 55..
The grounds this morning presented
an animated appearance. 0-neis of
stock wore currying and brushing their
animals preparatory to tho decision of
tho judges. The trainers were out walk
ing their race horses up and down for
exercise. Some of the horses were being
sped on the track by the jockeys and
everything looked as though the biggest
day of the fair was to follow. The stalls
are nil full ami the stock exhibit is the
largest in the fair's history. Among the
exhibits whi.ih caught the reporter's eye
