Tlu' steamer Ualles City collided with
the Thompson Wednesday morning
noon after leaving her dock. The fog
was very thick and the Thompson was
lying how on to the wharf, with her

by prompt action prevented a serious
accident, but as it was a portion of the
upper works of the Dalles City was iu
jiired. The blame rests with the officers
of the Thompson for lying crosswise of
the river, especially during bo heavy a

Max Vogt is justly proud of the show

he planted several acres with hops, and
thinking they would not produce any
thing this year, did not pole most of
them. Thoso that were taken care of,
however, show that they are pleased
with both aoil and cliumto, as they
would yield at least 1200 pounds to the
acre. He hud a very tine exhibit of
them at the pavilion. From the same
ranch he exhibited corn planted in the
latter part of June, and some late
potatoes, taking tlie first premium on
both of these as well as the hops.

stand was filled with spectators, many
of w hom were ladies. The day was
superb no wind and bright sunshine.

probably attain some degree of strength.
There were more races scheduled yes
terday than the daylight would permit
to occur. The trotting race was so
closely contested and took so long to de
cide tlie winner that the novelty race
had to be postponed till today. The
judges called out the trotters soon after
2 o'clock and Anita, Hamrock, Carle
Carrie and Mont, ma responded. In the
pools Anita sold as the favorite. The
four animals were in splendid condition
and as all hove splendid records a class
race was the result. In the first beat,
after a good start, tney went aronnd the
track in a bunch, Anita slightly in the
lead. This order was maintained till
near the wire, when Hamrock shot
ahead and won the heat with Anita a
close second; Carle Carne third and
Montana fourth; time, 2.39. In this
heat Hamrock and Montana both broke
badly at different times and it was only
by a splendid burst of speed that Ham-
rook won tlie jt.
In the next heat
Anita broke the track record, trotting
the mile in 2.28,'j, Hamrock second,
Carle Carne third and Montana fourth.
Anita is a wonderfully steady trotter
and is never seen to break. Anita won
tlie third bent ; time 2.36,'s. The other
liorses finished in the eume position as
the former heat.
The bicycle raca was now annouueed
and the young men who were to com
pete for the medal rode upon the tr.ick.
The contestants were: II. C. French,
Mr. Iiiggs, Ilert I'.arrett, D. S. Dufur,
George Dufur and Khren Korten. The
distance wns a mile and the race proved
to lie a hotly contested and interesting
one. From the start it was easily seen
the contest lay between Mr. French and
Mr. Iiiggs and all eyes were turned on
them as they swung iu the home stretch
with even w heels. The time dow u the
stretch w as very fast, and no one could
tell the w inner till Iiiggs passed under
the w ire first with French two feet be
hind him ; time 3.11. This contest was
as much enjoyed as any of the horse
The trotters w ere now called out for
the fourth heat and Anitia was picked
upon for the winner. Hamrock kept his
feet however, and won by a short dis
tance; Anita 2nd; Carl Carne 3rd and
Montana 4th; time 2:34. As Auita and
Hamrock bad each won two heats a fifth
one was necessary to decide the race.
lUit while the trotters were being
warmed tip the running horses were
called out. Jim Crow, I Don't Know,
Tampa and Blue Jay took their places at
the pole but it was nearly an hour before
the horses got away. Jim Crow started
in by being unmanageable and tore
around iu such a way as to make the
jockey's seat an insecure one. When be
became quieted down and ready to go,
Blue Jay became obstinate aud then the
other liorses took their turn until it
looked as though a start never w ould be
had. Finally they all wheeled around
and crossed the line heads even. It was
a pretty race, and only won tiy I Don't
Know in a close finish, Tampa second;
time 0.51. This is the fastest time on
i record on the tr.'ck, but does not beat
any record, as the same time w as made
several years ago.
The crowd eagerly waited for the last
heat in the trotting race, although it
was nearly dark wheu the horses took
their positions. Anita won the beat
j and race, Hamrock second, Carle Carne
I third, and Montana fourth; time 2.29.
This closed the day, and the crowd went
home feeling they bad had a day of
pleasure. Kveryone was satisfied w ith
the races and the chance of seeing so
many people together at one time.
We are sorry more of our country folk
have not attended the fair. The meet
ing is more for them than anyone else,
and they have really missed an oppor
tunity for pleasure. We don't speak of
their absence complainingly, but only
I wish they bad been present for tlieir
own good. It would be a break in the
routine of their lives, and give them
something to remember and think
about. The Dalles would have been
glad to have shown hospitality to all
that would partake.
A OKKAT l K0 II AT THE PAVILION.
Five hundred people thronged the
pavilion last evening, looking at the ex
hibits and hearing the music. The
school children were out in full force,
and mk.-.y of their parents came also.
The receipts at the door were quite
large. All those w ho were present re
mained till a late hour, and many pleas
ing expressions relative to the success of
the entertainment and display were
heard. The only thing to be regretted,
as has already been expressed, was the
absence of people from out of town.
The display from citizens of The Dalles
was very fine, and what there wa from
the country was just as good, only there
wasn't enough of it. Hood River, and
many other places that could have sent
fine exhibits, were hardly represented
at all. The judges had pinned the rib
bons on the winning exhibitsand those
who owned them received congratula
tions. The music of the orchestra was much
applauded by the audience, and they
were compelled to respond to several
encores. A new selection, descriptive of
a steamboat race on the Mississippi,
was rendered in a realistic manner.
The crowd of listeners around the or
chestra stand showed how much the
music was liked.
Last night was the last of the exhi
bits, and its close was marked in a fit
ting manner by the large attendance.
This morning the exhibits are being re
moved, in order to give room for the
ball this evening.
Many for the first time saw the sul
kies with pneumatic tires at the fair
this rear. It is claimed they enable
faster time to be made. Anita and
Carie Carne both bad them yesterday.
One individual was heard to remark,
"Here comes the horse with the rheu
This is by far the best fair in several
years. The races have been of a very
high order, and the exhibits were
first-class. We are told the money re
ceipts have been very good, and equalled
anticipations. It is hoped the ball to
night will raise them still larger.
The management showed wisdom in
placing the pavilion exhibits down town.
This was clearly proven by the crowd in
attendance last evening.
The stock parade took place this
morning, as advertised, and the animals
made a fine showing.
The End of the fair.
The fair closed with a large attendance
and a fine program. The crowd was not
as large as the day before but the frand
stand was well filled and many people
were on thegronnds.
The first race the novelty, was won
by Buck. This was ,l2' mile walk,
mile trot and 1.i mile run and proved an
The gentleman's roadster was hotly
contested, Dick Hinton's horse Hero,
proving the winner. It took six heats
to decide the race as Mr. Brown's mare
also won two heats and Mike Welch's

was good being close to three minutes.
The mile dash was won by Tampa

A five mile handicap bicycle race was
the last event and it was quite dark be

winner and Bert Barrett second.
In the evening the grand ball was held
at the pavilion. The room was crowded
w ith dancers and spectators, all of whom
bad a most enjoyable evening. The
floor was in good condition and the
music superb. The best people in town
were in attendance and expressed them
selves greatly pleased with their enter
tainment. The financial receipts were

"A well known weather prophet says
we are going to have a cold winter, and
gives the following 'signs : The coons

world; the insects have left the north
side of the trees in the woods; the

It might be added that the goose bone
is spotted, and Governor Pennoyer gets
left in January; that firewood is expen

that the only genuine groundhog sau

The Thieve iot Away With I J..MIO
In tlol.l and I.IOO Rllver, Weigh
ing ISO I'ounda.
The express office was robbed Satur
day night just after the arrival of the 11
o'clock passenger. Agent Hill went to
the train instead of Mr. Tibbetts, who
was attending the ball, and after receiv
ing the express box, be bad Night
Watchman Gibons accompany him to
the office. The box was placed just in
side the door, which wag locked, while
Mr. Hill went to the postoflice with the
mail and to deliver a sack of oysters,
which had come up by express, to the
Branner restaurant. Marshal Blakeney
came back with him, and on the way
they passed Mr. M. A. Moody, who,
having money in the box, as is his
usual custom, was on big way to the
office to get it and place it in the vault.
When Hill and Blakeney entered the
office they at once discovered that the
box had been broken open and the con
tents, or most of them, had been taken.
Mr. Moody came in by this time, and an
examination was made of the room, a
tag from a shipment of silver and the
instrument with which the box was
broken opfv, lewarding their search.
The latter was evidently made for the
purpose from an old drill. One end was
sharpened like a cold chisel, the other
wag hammered into a square shupe,
drawn out to a point, and then bent in
a quarter circle or hook. The marks in
the box show that the thief first inserted
the point of the hook in the staple and
tried to pry it out, but failing in this, he
inserted it in the arm of the padlock
and twisted it ofl.
The robbery occurred between 11:30
and 12:15,so that the thief was evi
dently on the watch, and the robbery
wag deliberately planned. The box
contained $7,500 in gold and $2,500 in
silver consigned to French A Co., and
$5,000 gold consigned to The Dalles Na
tional bank. The gold was all taken
and $1,500 in silver, making a weight of
about 130 pounds, which is probably the
reason the other $1,000 wag not taken,
as it would have added sixty pounds to
Mr. Hill, evidently acting under in
structions, refuses to talk of the matter
at all ; but as far as can be learned no
tangible clues have yet been found as to
the identity of the robber.
Concerning- Hchool Money.
As there has been considerable in
quiry concerning the small appropria
tion made by the state school superin
tendent, Supt. Shelley referred one of
the letters to State Superintendent Mc
Elroy, and received the following
answer, which, as the people have a
well-defined opinion of their own, will
not prove entirely satisfactory. The
letter, dated Oct. 10th, is as follows :
"Replying to your favor of the 5th
inst., in which you enclose a communi
cation from the board of directors of dis
trict No. 3 of your county, I beg leave to
say that I Lave made inquiry relative to
the matter, and reply as follows:
"First You understand that I am
not a member of the board of school
land commissioners. The governor, the
secretary of state and the state treasurer
comprise that board.
Second I have made inquirv of the
state treasurer relative to the matter,
and Mr. Metschan gives me the follow
ing information : lie made an appor
tionment of all funds on hand in August
last, the amount per capita at that time
being 87 cents. This money was for
warded to the several county treasurers,
and I presume you have distributed this
money to the schools of your county
long ago. Mr. Metschan tells me that
owing to the extreme stringency of the
times, it is impossible for him to collect
the interest due on the school fund notes
now held by people in all parts of the
state. You understand that this fund
ariseg from the Interest on the irreduci
ble school land fund, and the school
land fund arises from the purchases of
school land by people in all parts of the
state. The principal itself cannot be
distributed to the children of the state,
but interest only. The state treasurer
finds it, as I stated above, quiteout of the
question to collect interest to any appre
ciable amount and it would be useless to
foreclose the notes held against the
people for the shrinkage in real estate
values hag been so enormous that it
would be practically of no avail for the
state board to foreclose. He states that
many persons whose notes the state now
holds and who have heietoforebeeii very
prompt iu paying their interest on this
fund are now pleading for further time
in which to pay their delinquent interest.
The above are the reasons w hy a large
amount of the school funds baa not been
distributed this year, and I trust that
you will make this plain to all boards of
directors making inquiry of you reard
this matter. I remain,
Yours very sincerely,
K. B. MVKlhoy,
State Supt. Pub. Instruction.

A meeting will be held Wednesday
evening at 7 :30 in the Congregational
church, for the purpose of organizing a
literary and debating society. The in
tention is to have an oreanization that
will give both profit and pleasure to its
members. All those who are interested
in such pursuit, and will enter heartily
into the spirit of the work, are earnestly
requested to be present Wednesday
evening. A large number have already
signified their intention of attending.
In an article concerning a runaway
near Heppner, published yesterday, a
miserable evil-minded "1" got into a
word where a "t" belonged, and so we
said that the unfortunate woman, who
was hurt in the accident, suffered not
contusion, but "confusion" of the brain.
The latter is a common complaint, not
requiring any accidentg to develop it.
