Hirer meat market, was in the pity last
evening. He informs us that business
is rushing in Hood Eiver and that large
amounts of fruit is being shipped daily
from that point east.
Parties who came up on the local to
day inform us that the contractors had
almost completed the work of launching
the Regulator. When the train passed
the boat was almost off the ways, and it
is thought that she is now floating on
the breast ot tbe Columbia. '
Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Mclnerny and fam

the visitors have already returned home

Today the work of tearing down the
G. A. R. arch was begun. The arcb has
-served its purpose at ' the encampment
and on July 4th, and baa stood long
. enough. The winds and weather have
-changed it to anything but an ornament
and it is a wise move to get it out of the
road. " ,
The cool nights have the effect of
causing a great many more of the mem
bers to spend their leisure time at the
club. Last evening being for ladies and
gentlemen the largest number that has
been at the clnb rooms since the early
part of the summer season, took part in
the bowling, and some fine scorres were
- made considering how long it has been
since bowling to amount . to any
thing has been done. . It is expected
- that the Dalles bowlers will practice up
now, so as to make a respectable show
ing in the future tournaments.
The renowned orator. T. DeWitt Tal
mage, will lecture in Portland tonight.
Dr. Talmage figures among the . greatest
of American pulpit orators. His lecture
will be delivered in the exposition build

date the throng who will be present to
hear him. " " ' "
About one dozen heavy teams are
loading freight at the Wasco Warehouse
today for Silver Lake. At present a
great deal of merchandise and supplies
are being shipped to this point, as the
winter is approaching - and in a Bhort

Yesterday Bruce Anson who for
seveial years has been employed as clerk
in the road masters office in this city, re
ceived a telegram from Michigan in
forming him that his mother was dan
gerously ill and -asking him to come
home immediately. He will leave for
the east tonight or tomorrow as he will
have to wait until such time as he re
ceives his transportation.
Yesterday eyening Mr. and Mrs. Nels
Patterson who live about six miles above
Dufur were going out shooting birds
when an accident happened from the
effects of which Mrs. Patterson niay lose
one of her hands at the wrist. It ap
pears Mr. Patterson was carrying a ehot
gun and stumbled on a rock - and dis
charged a load of No. 6 shot which
struck Mrs. Patterson in the right hand
lacerating it terribly and tearing away
everything but the little and ring fingers
which may possibly be saved. Dr
GeisendortTer was snmuoned and left
immediately to dress the wound.
John Rayhurn. a section boss at Roos
ter kock, was arrested yesterday on a
warrant iBBued from lustice Kraemer's
court, charging him with assault and
battery upon J. T. Smith. Smith's head
was brutally beaten, and according to
his version the assault was uncalled for.
smith is an invalid veteran oi tne war
while his assailant is a healthy man,
weighicg about 200 pounds. The com
plainant has charge of anothers place at
Rooster Rock. Near by, on the railroad
property, stands an apple tree, alleged
to belong to no individual in particular.
from which Smith and his son yesterday
shook some of the fruit. Mrs. Rayburn
objected to that, and Smith claims that
he told ber to file her complaint with
the railroad company. In the evening
Rayburn came to Smith's bouse, called
him out, and they walked a . few rods
along the track. In an unguarded mo
ment Rayburn began to pummel Smith
in an unmerciful manner. Smith's ap
pearance would indicate that be had
been fondeled with a pick handle.
Tomorrow morning the open season
for shooting pheasants, grouse, quail
and waterfowl begins. The season for
upland birds will close December 1, but

Constable Frank Hill left last night for
Wyeth with a warrant for the arrest of a
party named Charles Wand who is
charged with having obtained money
under false pretenses. It appears that
Wand . was a partner with - Jones
Brothers in a contracting and railroad
grading company and served as - pay
master for the said company which is at
present operating on tne O. B. & N.
near Wyeth. In paying off one of the
hands a short time ago, Wand drew a
check for a much larger amount, than
was coming and kept the difference
when the check was cashed. His
partners found out what he had done
and swore out a warrant for' bis arrest.
Constable Hill found on bis arrival at
Wyeth that his man had gone to Port
land and has followed htm . up in the
hopes of finding him there. - .

of Klickitat county, are. in the city.

They report that the road leading from
Goldendale to The Dalles is in
very bad condition in many places,
especially on this side of the
mountain. If The Dalles, people desire
the large grain crops of Klickitat county
as well as the trade of that prosperous
section, they should look into the matter
of the improvement of the road leading
to this city. No work has ; been done
in the way of improving it during the
entire summer and' it is in such a con
dition at present that a heavy team can
not be driven over it with any safety,
The rocks should be picked off and the
holds filled uo in order to gain the
patronage of the Klickitat farmers.
The common council a short time
since received a note from a man at
The Dalles, ears the Oregonian, who
wished to enter into negotiations for the
sale of a wild cat, which he imagined the
council would be anxious to secure at
anv price, as an attraction for the City
Park. He was shy about naming a
price, but appeared to think- that the
park was short on wild cats, and must
have them, no difference Low high they
came. 'An answer was sent in which
full particulars in regard to the charac
teristics and peculiarities of the wild cat
were asked for, and if these proved satis
factory an offer was tendered to ex
change a coyote fur the wild cat, the cat
to be delivered at the park, and the
coyote taken away without cost to the
city. No answer has been received and
none is now looked for. . Probably the
man who has the wild cat believes that
the council is composed of rather close
traders, who do not intend that the city
shall be got ahead of in a cat trade. -
Everything indicates at present "that
The Dalles theater goers will have nu
merous entertainments given by borne
talent this fall. Those which are spoken
of at present are a mneicale by the Alpha
Mandolin and Guitar Club and a genuine
negro minietrei performance under the
auspices of The Dalles Commercial and
Athletic Club. The muBicale promises
to be without exception the finest ever
given by Dalles talent. Over thirty of
our beBt musicians will take part
and the program will consist of selec
tions by the entire club, instrumental
solos, duets, quartets, sextets as well as
a mingling of vocal talent which would
reflect credit on any town.. The date for
the musicale has not been set, but will
be sometime after the 15th of September,
while the Minietrei performance will
take place toward the end of October.
Two large consignments of wool and
flour from the Diamond Roller Mills

who is charged with obtaining money
under false pretenses. .Wand has "been
placed in jail and will have his hearing
in the justice court tomorrow.
U. C. Millett. a well-known Lase
county tarmer, who lives near . Junction
City, completed threshing his crop Mon
day. He saved 14,000 bushels of wheat
and 2000 bushels of oats and barley from
600 acres of land, an average of 26
bushels per acre. '..
This morning Deputy Sheriff F. C,
Sexton arrested James - Denton, aged
eleven, and Claud and Guy Root, aged
respectively eleven and eight years.
They are charged with having stolen
money from the residence of a chinaman
who lives on the hill near the fair
grounds. Their hearing before Judge
Mays began at 2o'clock this afternoon
and, although, the evidence against the
lads is strong they will in all probability
be severely repremended and discharged.
They have not the appearance of bad
boys and are the children of two respect

A large wool sale took place at the
Wasco Warehouse yesterday. Charlee
Donn, of Antelope, sold his entire clip
of about 30,000 pounds to Mr. Willie, who
represents a Chicago house, at 15 cents.
This is considered a very good price, and
Mr. Bann is not sorry he held this long.
This sale does not indicate that the bot
tom has fallen out - ot the market and
will have the effect of causing the pro
ducers to hold ther wool for still higher
prices. - - '.
A picture of the silk flag which was
donated by the B. P. O. E., of this city,
to Co. G., O. N. G. and was presented
to the Elka by Mr. Gifford, was in Mays

and in all probability was carried out by
someone. It anyone has the same they
would confer a favor by returning it.

The Jacobson Book and Music Com
pany placed in their window thia morn
ing an article which proves a source of
amusement to all the little folks and
many of the older people. It is a etatue
of Uncle Sain posing as a violinist. His
features are lit up with a jovial smile
and his eyes are rolling in glee as he
thinks of the fast music he gave the
Spaniards to keep Etep to. They have
also a largo collection of pictures known
as glass medallions which are the moat
beautiful things of the kind we have
ever seen. -
A lively runaway occurred in this city
this forenoon. A team belonging to an
Indian was standing near the Regulator
wharf when it took fright and had a
lively chase up Second street.. The
horses were unhitched from the wagon
having nothing but the double trees
fastened to them at the time. They
were very evenly matched in. point of
speed - and kept together until they
reached three-mile when they tired out
and were caught and brought back. No
one was injured by the rnnaway al
though numerous people were on . the
streets at the time while the damage to
the horses or harness was trivial,
able citizens, Thomas Denton and John
Root. There was some talk of them be
ing sent to the reform school but on ac
count of their being so young such a
coarse does not seem necessary.
According to tbe expectation of all
concerned - the Steamer Regulator
was . successfully launched yesterday
afternoon and put into the mouth of the
locks. In launching tbe boat, however,
a piece of one of the ways was forced
through the bottom ' of the craft and
alter launching the water poured into
the hull rapidly and soon the vessel
was laying on her eide in a rather bad
condition. . The managers of the D. P.
and A. line have sent for 150 more bar
rels and after placing them in her hold
hope to be able to successfully float the
craft to Portland. The most difficult
part of the whole matter will be taking
tbe boat through the swift water below
the locks; this will not be attempted,
however, until it is put in shape so that
there will be little danger of any further
accidents. . - .
J. Frabk Watson has sued ex-Sherff

Watson secured on June 8, a decree and
judgment against the Noonday Mining
C unpany, of Bohemia, for $5202.68, ac
crued interest, attorney's fees and costs.
An execution was issued and the date of
the sale of the property,' machinery.
etc.. was set for Saturday, August 13.
Before the appointed time arrived, how
ever, the Noouday company filed a stay
bond with the sheriff, and took an ap
peal to the supreme court,, the sheriff
relying upon the stay bond and refusing
to sell the property as advertised. The
eherifTs disregard of a stay bond made
him liable to a suit for damages br-.nght
by either party, as a mine is legarded as
personal property, and is not eubject to
redemption like real estate.
Shortly after Sheriff Kelly etejiped in
to office he published a notice in the
papers, to taxpayers, urging them to pay
tbeir delinquent taxes. The Oregonian
of August 7th said of his notice that it
was the most extreme case of official
politeness in the history of Oregon
politics. Along with making game of
it, it seems anxious to know whether
property owners would settle any more
quickly than if they bad been put to
the trouble of paying costs of seizure and
sale. At the time the notice was in
serted "there was $60,000 deliequen.
The amount be handed to the county
treasurer today, $4900,01 will increase
the amount collected since he took
charge of the tax rolls to $16175,92 or
one-fourth of tbe delinquent taxes of
the county. Considering that tbe farmers
ano wool men have not yet marketed
tbeir produce this ia certainly a splendid
showing and should satisfy any inquiries
concerning the effectiveness of Sheriff
Kelly's "polite notice."

Grave fears for the safety of the
steamer Regulator were entertained
after the launching of the boat. It was
expected when it sunk atthe mouth of
the locks that it would be a total wreck.
Such, however, is not the case as the
Dixon succeeded in towing the boat into
the locks yesterday and at present is"
laying as in dry dock. About two hun
dred barrels, will be put into the bold

Mrs. Jas. Cordell, who resides two
miles northwest of Fossil, met with a
serious accident at an early hour last
Friday morning. ' A lamp had been left
burning in the bedroom, and Mrs. Cor
dell awoke at about 2 o'clock a. m., to
discover the lamp blazing up in an
alarming manner as tbongh about to

attempted to carry the lamp to the
front door to through it out, but before
she could reach the door tha lamp ex
ploded and her clothing was instantly
in flames. The fire waa quickly ex
tinguished, but not until one of Mrs.
Oordell's arms was severely burned,
from the hand to the elbow. Medical
aid was hastily summoned from Condon
and the burna were dressed, and at last
accounts the patient was getting along
