To the Honorable Circuit Court : ,
We, the grand jury for the May term,
1895, respectfully submit thia our final
.. We have been in session five days and
hare returned and reported to the court
from time to time four "true bills" and
three "not true bills."
We have examined the county records,
and books, and as far as we- are able to
judge from our hasty examination, we
find all books neaily and correctly kept.
We find from the report of the expert
appointed to examine the books of the
clerk's office, that there has been fraud
ulent script issued to the amount of
11311.77, and we recommend that the
. county proceed to collect this amoupt
from the bondsmen of the respective
clerks during whose term of office such
fraudulent script was issued, or in any
other manner provided by law. : ' ;
' We further recommend that an expert
be appointed by the county court, to in
vestigate and examine the books of the
sheriff's office, from July. 1890, to the
present time, and to report the re
suit of his labor to the county court.
We find that our county indebtedness
is large and that there is a large amount
of delinquent taxes to be collected, and
we tneretore recommend tnat tne nec
essary action be taken at once to col
lect these taxes.
Having completed our labors we ask
to be discharged.

The Dalles, June 3, 1895.
To the Editor In a few weeks the
thistle will be in blossom, and then tne
seed time .will come; and what (hen?
Thousands upon thousands of seeds will
be sown and take root in the soil of the
lawns and flower and vegetable gardens,
to say nothing of the streets, vacant lots
and alleys. To take note of the ap
pearance of some of the unoccupied
property on our main streets, there will
be enough seed sown this summer to fill
tne city next year.
What can be done to prevent this?
. How put a stop to the extension of the
tract of country now occupied by the
thistle? Simply obey the law. Section
9, 10 and 11 of city ordinance No. 274 re
fers to this matter and provides that
property owners shall not permit thistles
to bloom nor exist on their premises nor
ahbntting streets or alleys.
The penalty for any violation of this
ordinance is' a fine of not less than five
dollars nor more than fifty dollars or im
prisonment in the city jail.
Now is the time to begin and by alittle
work save a vast amount of trouble.
The street commissioner is charged
who tne duty oi seeing tnat tne provis
ions of the ordinance are enforced and
should look well to the matter.
A Dallea Young- Lady Married.
A very pretty wedding occurred in
. Portland at 534, Morrison street, June
1st, the contracting parties being Miss
Ida C. Fritz of The Dalles, Or., and Mr.
Jno. C. Fleschhutz of Portland, who
were nnited in the bonds of matrimony
by Eev. B. Orth of St. Lawrence church.
The bridal couple took position under
a beautiful floral wedding bell of white
carnations and pink rosebuds. They
were attended- by Miss Margaret Kelly
of Portland and Mr. Chas. Fritz, a
brother of the bride.
The bride, gowned in pearl grey and
lace, wearing a handsome white hat,
and carrying bridal roses, was a picture
of loveliness. The bridesmaid was at
tired in white mull, carrying La France
ruaea. j. ue decorations were very ar
tistic, and reflected great credit on the
Dainty refreshments were served
after which, at a late hour, the guests
departed, wishing the young' couple long
life and prosperity. Only the family
and a few intimate friends were present,
Crop Bulletin Mo 10 of the
State Weather Service for
Wkatheb : Showers prevailed in the
fore part of the week. Since Tuesday
the weather has been cool and cloudy
Frosts occurred in the greater portion
of this section of the state on the
28th, 30th and 31st of May, being espec
lally heavy south of the Blue mountains,
The total rainfall for the week amounted
to about one-quarter.,, of an inch.. The
maximum temperature ranged from 62
to 76 dee. : the minimum from 40 to 46
deg. ; except south of the Blue moun
tains, where it ranged from 30 to 42 deg,
Freezing temperature prevailed over the
greater portion of the country south of
the Blue mountains! which has an . ele
vation of from 2,000 to 5,000. feet, on the
28th and 31 of May.
Crops : There was no damage done
by the frosts. Where the frosts were
heavy the -vegetation has not advanced
sufficiently for damage to be done; in
the Columbia river valley the frosts
were too light' to do injury. Strawber
ries are ripening rapidly throughout the
Columbia river valley and large ship
ments are being daily made. ' .The crop
is an unusually heavy one. . Cherries are
ripe at Hood River and at The Dalles.
The rain was of great benefit to the
grain crop, mere is a large acreage oi
spring and volunteer grain this year, es
pecially in Gilliam and Morrow counties;
more than the usual grain of this kind
is in Wasco, Sherman and Umatilla
counties ; spring and volunteer grain re
quires frequent and timely rain to make
a crop; the past rains have been very
beneficial; bnt more will be' required
during this month to make good yields,
The present condition is good, but the
farmers are nervous over possible hot,
dry winds this month. V Fall-sown or
summer-fallow grain was never more
promising; it has stooled well and has a
good stand. It is now heading rapidly.
Rye has headed and will soon be ready
to cut.' The hay crop has been greatly
benefited by the rains, and like in .the
western portion of the state, a 'heavy
hay crop will be secured. Grasshoppers
are unusually plentiful in portions of
Gilliam and Morrow counties. Range
grass : is good and the cattle present
an excellent appearance. Thev are fat
and in prime condition. Every corres
pondent except a few in Morrow and
Gilliam counties reports excellent pros
pects for large yields of all crops.
The average June rainfall ranges from
a to li inches in the Columbia river
valley, and from to IJ4 inches, south
of the Blue mountains ; as a rule the
rainfall is more in the form of heavy
spring showers than in long-continued
gentle snowers. ' ' ' ' -
The condition for bounteous crops of
all descriptions have seldom, if ever,
been better in yeai s gone by than they
are at the present time. ,
