sented the young ladies of the Chronicle
force with a basket of sweet water grapes,
which were gathered from the vines at

Mr, Simpson, the telephone operator
at Canyon City, informs ns that the
first report that went abroad last week
regarding the Indian trouble in Grant
county, was erroneous to a great extent
and that parties returning from the "seat
of war" say that only one Indian was
killed and another slightly wonnded.
Geo. Cutting was the only white uan
killed, and that no particular Indian
scare was experienced by the -citizens
around Izee. The affair has, however,
stirred np bad blood between the settlers
and the Indians, and more trouble may
ensue. Heppner Times.
This morning word reached here
of the death of Charles Shanks yester
day at Starbuck, Wash. His death was
caused indirectly from typhoid fever.
The body will be brought to this city,
reaching here in the morning. It can
not be positively said at what time the
funeral will be held until the train ar
rives and arrangements are made known.
Mr. Shanks was about 45 yearB old and
- formerly resided in The Dalles, being
employed at the shops as boiler maker
under John Albriffit. His friends can
not say positively, but are of the opinion
that be is a member of the Workmen
and Foresters of America.
. Among'lhe names of the boys in Ma
nila to whom Christmas boxes have
been forwarded by the. Emergency Corps
of Portland for relatives and friends, ap
pears that of Admiral Dewey. This box
was sent by an old lady in Oregon who
- failed to leave her same. . It contained
large, red Oregon apples raised by the
good old lady who picked each one and
carefully packed them and brought them
to town. She bad no boy of ber own
there, and thinking -Admiral Dewey
might be an orphan boy, or that bis
friends might forget him, thereby caus
ing him to spend a gloomy Christmas,
she determined to send him the apples.
If they will stand the trip, which is
more than doubtful, it is safe to predict
that the hero of Manila will have as
good a time as any of the soldier boys
' when the boxes arrive, and we believe
' among all the presents Admiral Dewey
receives be will not fail to appreciate
the gift of the dear old lady.
An exhibition of cool nerve was given
laBt Thursday evening on 3-Miie which
discounts many of which our cities can
boast. Parties, who were more than
sociably inclined, drove into the orchard
of David Creighton and proceeded, to
load themselves down with apples, not
considering it necessary to wait for an
. invitation to make themselves at borne.
A neighbor and one of Mr. Creighton 's
men who came upon the scene ventured
to inquire as to their authority for such
"proceedings, whereupon one of the men
drew a revolver and politely asked him
to step aside and let them pass. Not
caring to argue the question, under the
circumstances, they, were allowed to
drive out, and no hint as to who they
might be has since been obtained.
However, Mr. Creighton being an honest,
good-hearted man, and desirous of rec
ognizing grit wherever he finds it, wish
"! es to inform them that they left a basket
behind, which they may have 'upon in--:

At a meeting of the members of the
Christian church last evening their pas
tor, Rev. Boltz, gave notice that it was
bis intention to enter the evangelistic
field at the close of this year's work, as
that has always been the . work most
preferable to him.
Yeaterdav morning the body of
Charles Shanks was brought to this city
and taken to the Crandall & Burget
undertaking parlors. At 1 :30 the funeral
procession left for the cemetery, followed
by members of the orders of Workmen
and Foresters. The services were con-
ductel at the grave by Rev. J. H. Wood
A gypsy outfit was in the city yester
day and left on the boat this morning.
They must have belonged to the gypsy
"400" from their outfit, one wagon-cf
which they claim was . worth $550
Whether a gypsy's character may be
known by the coat he wears we know
not ; but as far as we have learned they
were very peaceable.
The Sarah Dixon was delayed some
what yesterday on account of the heavy
wind, which is always more noticable on
the river. However, she arrived at the
wharf last evening about 7:30 o'clock
with the Dalles City and Regulator
hulls. Work was commenced on the
Regulator 1 his morning and it is ex
pected the house can be placed on her
new bull in about ten days.
Residents awoke this morning to le
greeted by a "cold frost," the coldest of
the season, the thermometer being down
to 29 degrees. At about 10 o'clock a few
stray snow flakes were seen flitting in
the air, reminding us that winter is at
hand, while the Klickitat hills looked as
if they were preparing to don their win
ter garb, for tbey are usually the leaders
in the winter styles.
Yesterday afternoon at 1:39 o'clock at
the home of the bride's parents about
five miles west of The Dalles, Oliver
Bowers and Ida L. Ganger were united
in marriage by Elder Wm. Michel!.
About twenty-five of the relatives of the
young people were present, and after
congratulations bad been extended to
them, a wedding dinner was served and
the occasion proved a joyous one for all.
In spite of the many privations and
homesickness which our soldiers seem
to be passing through, they have not
forgotten their Dalles friends and many
socvenirs have been received here. In
the window of Van Norden's jewelry
store a collection is displayed which was
received Saturday by Miss Bertie Glenn,
and Mr. Garretson's window also con
tains many interesting souvenirs which
Fred Grunow brought with him from
historical places which he visited.
For the past week the friends of Mrs.
Joseph Erhart, who was taken to the
hospital in Portland about a month ago
to be treated ior stomach trouble, have
been hearing of the hopelessness of her
case, and feared the worse, as ber disease
was pronounced cancer of the stomach. !
This morning a message was received
telling of her death at that place last
night and that ber remains would Le
brought home this evening. Her hus
band and daughter, Miss Edna, were at
her bedside and will accompany the re
mains. Mrs. Erhart has always been
considered a very . healthy woman till
within the past few months, and her
friends can scarcely realize she is to be
brought home a corpse. Deep sympathy
is expressed for the husband and i
daughter, the latter seeming, to so fully
rely upon her mother not only as a
daughter always does, . but for a close
companionship, having no sisters nor

Courtland Green, whose trial for the
murder of John Linn has been going on
in Eugene, was sentenced yesterday to
life imprisonment, he having confessed
to complicity in the crime. '
Last night Jackson Engine Company
had a fire drill. Quite a number of
members were present, and it is intend
ed to occasionally have euch drills, for the
purpose of keeping in practice.
Prof. Ryan informs ns that the Wilder
Quintette Club, who are musicians of a
high order and well known In Portland,
will be in this city on Thursday, No
vember 17th, and give a concert in the
Baldwin. This will be 'good news to
the music-loving public. ' -
The froet is now on the "punkin,"
and the flowers bb well, compelling all
who wish to keep their, plants alive to
cover them. The chrysanthemums are
just now beginning to be the most beauti
ful and it seems cruel for the boary
froBt to nip them so mercilessly.
Mr. Einerely has solved a problem of
great moment to the ladies of The
Dalles, and from now' on they may
finish their shopping without being com
pelled to go borne and. find out whether
their hats are on straight, . In one of
his show windows he has arranged mir
rors galore of all descriptions. Whether
this is to attract the ladies has not been
determined, but the aforesaid gentleman
no doubt ha9 on eye to business.
Last night after the regular practice of
the mandolin and guitar club at Frater
nity hall about thirty young people
joined them and the remainder of the
evening was spent in dancing. The?
music furnished by the club proved to
be excellent, as the time was peifect and
the selections good. Those who were
present hope this will not be their last
invitation to spend a few houis so
Another serious accident occurred this
afternoon when Hon. Robert Mays, who
was assisting the workmen to remove
some heavy stones which are being used
in his new building, from the wacon,
mashed his left hand very badly. The
stone fell on his band cutting a deep
gash in the center of it, and it is feared
it will be rendered useless. This acci
dent is doubly unfortunate as Mr. Mays
loet the use of his right hand about two
years ago from rheumatism. -
The funeral service of Philip Brogan,
which took place this morning at 9 o'clock
in the Catholic church, was one of the
largest ever held in The Dalles, and the
long procession which followed the re
mains to the cemetery evidenced the re
gard felt for the deceased, who met such
an untimely death. The order of Catho
lic Knights preceeded the bier, which
was carried by Messrs. M. T. Nolan, K
McLellan, F. McRae, A. Bettingen, J,
Malone and Henry Meier. Father
Bronsgeest conducted the service, which
was extremely affecting, the eorrow of
the children of the deceased over the loss
of their only parent making the scene
This morning Messrs. Ed.Gleason and
Tom Condon arrived in the city from
Antelope with Joe Aubin, nicknamed
"Slim," and Raymond Chavies, who are
held as accessories to the murder of
Philip Brogan. The last heard of For
ester, the murderer, he was at Trout
creek, fourteen miles-from Antelope,
and it was expected he would be cap
tured last night. Leaving Antelope
directly after committing the deed, he
went to Eagle valley and from there to
Trout creek. As there was not auffi
cent men at the place to attempt to
take him, word was sent to Antelope and
a force of men were dispatched im
mediately to capture him.
The Prineville Review Bays concerning
the large traction engine which was in
The Dalles some months ago on its way
to Silver Lake: "Last week we said that
the people of Silver Lake might hear the
whistle of Christman's engine next 4th
of July, but we were mistaken. He has
come to grief or rather the engine has.
After being laid up at Haystack for sev
eral weeks undergoing repairs, another
start was made. When near what is
called Mud Springs, the engine blew
up and we understood it is a total wreck.
No one was hurt. The engine will be
abandoned and another trial made next
spring. We'll extend the time a little
and eay be may arrive at his destination
some lime next fall." .
The chapter of accidents and fatalities
still continues, and we are compelled to
chronicle one after another of these sad
news items. About noon today Mr. C.
G. Whitmore, who lives on the right
fork of Mill creek, arrived in town bear
ing the news of the death of hie father-in-law,
James Hartman. He bad been
engaged in work on the road and laet
night after eating a hearty supper re
tired. Being called this morning no
response was heard and upon going into
bis room he was found dead in bed.
Heart disease is said to be the cause. . It
was thought best that an inquest be
held and Coroner Butts went out for
that purpose this afternoon. Mr. Hart-
man, who was 60 years old, was an old
soldier, and made his home with his
son-in-law. The funeral will be held at
their residence on Mill creek on Friday.
A "to" right.
The noble red man is making himself
known in these parts of late, and Friday
night distinguished himself by getting
into a drnnken fight. A number of
Watm Springs Indians were in the city
yesterday, and many of ttem left
last evening. This morning about
2 o'clock the nightwatebman was la-
formed that an Indian had been found
in the feed yard in the East End of
town who was very badly injured and
needing assistance. He immediately
went op and found Joe Kulup, of Warm
Springs, in an unconscious, condition
with a dreadful gash in his bead, which
looked as if it might have been made,
with a pick. He was nnable to talk to
Dr. Hollister, who attended him, but
from all that can be found out, the si-
washes had been quarreling, with the
This morning an Indian was arrested
and has spent the day in jail. However,
Marshal Lauer feels pretty sure be is
not the guilty man, and it is thought
some of those who left last night are
responsible for the deed. The injured
man will probably not survive, bis skull
being badly fractured.

STABBED TO DEATH
PHILIP BROSAN MURDERED AT
Frank Forester, tils Camp Packer,
Commits the Dreadrnl Deed
and Esoapes Officers Sent In N
' Pursuit of the FagitlTe
From J as t Ice.
This seems to be a season of accidents
and fatalities and The Dalles has not
for years been so afflicted in the loss of
citizens as during the pa6t year or more.
Yesterday morning ' residents were
shocked to lenrn of the muider of one
of its highly respected and prominent
men, Philip Brogan, at Antelope. ; A
telephone message received from Grass
Valley first conveyed the news to friends
here, and it was not many minutes un
til the subject was uppermost in the
conversation of all.
Many conflicting reports may be heard
in regard to the manner in which the
dreadful affair took place, but as nearly
as can be determined the facta are as
follows: A man by the name of Frank
Forester who has been working for Mr.
Brogan for some time as camp packer
owed Brogan (100, 'which be was to
work out, and there was some misunder
standing as to its settlement. Friday
Brogan was thrown from his horso and
hurt very badly, so that when Forester
wished a settlement Saturday bis em
ployer asked that it be lett nntil Sunday,
when he would be feeling better, and it
was so decided.
During the day Forester and two com
panions, a fellow known as Slim and a
Mexican followed Mr. Brogan from
place to place, and seemed desirous of
picking a quarrel, and. at one time For
ester and a Mr. Gumm had some hot
Saturday night Mr. Brogan was in
Silvertooth'a saloon in Antelope, when
Slim, the Mexican and Forester entered.
As they stepped to the bar, Brogan was
invited to take a drink, but he refused,
saying be did not feel well. In a short
time a man named Frank Gumm and
Forester began quarreling, when' the
former knocked the latter'down. "Slim"
then took-a hand and pulled Gomm off
of Forester.' McRae, who was in the sa
loon at the same time, In turn separated
Slim" and Gumm. At this juncture
Brogan, who had previously stayed in
the back part of the room, walked to the
front, and ''Slim" thinking he meant to
leave, picked up a chair and was about
to knock him down, when McRae in
terfered. Forester then made a dash
at Brogan with a knife stabbing him in
the heart. He lived but about two
The murderer then dashed out of the
saloon and escaped. Sheriff Brown at
once sent a posse in pursuit, but no
word has been received as to the result
of their search.
"Phil" Brogan is a man of about 56
years,' and was perhaps as widely known
as any man in the county, having been
in the sheep business near Antelope for
years. That he should have met such a
violent death is greatly to be regretted.
About eight years ago he moved to this
city, built a home on Third street where
his family now resides. A short time
previous to that bis wife died and was
brought here for burial, so that the six
children, five daughters and one son, are
now left motherless and fatherless.
Reports as to Foresters' character are
conflicting, some saying he was not of a
quarrelsome disposition, but that his
deed must have been caused from a
biain fired by liquor. Others say be
was always hot-headed and ready for a
fight, having the reputation of being de

brought to this city, accompanied by a
number ef friends of the deceased. -

Catholic church tomorrow morning at 9

afternoon are to the effect that two per
sons have been arrested as suspects.
Rewards have been offered, - and the
sheriff is now contemplating sending out
a posse from here in pursuit of the flee

MANILA AS SHE IS.'
Soldier Boys Don't Like It Bow They
Were Treated. .
A number of letters were received in
the city this morning from- our boys at
Manila, and their contents were eagerly
devoured by their relatives and friends.
One teceived by H. D. Parkins from A.
E. Trask is yery interesting and gives a
good idea of the life of the boys there.
He eays they are anxions to get home,
but nothing definite as to when they
can return can be determined, tome say
before Christmas;, others" not for two
years, lie is not enthusiastic over
Manila. Says it is too warm and the
water very poor. When - the troops
reached there it was the dirtiest ' place
imaginable, but the Americans com
pelled the residents to clean up the city.
The people, be says, are no good, and,
worse, are full of diseases of all descrip
tion, leprosy included. Beside, tbey are
about ' two hundred years behind the
times, the only things modern being
electric lights and telephones, and those
are the first invented.
There is not so much sick aess among
the troops there as the boys bad in
Cuba, only one man being lost out. of
Uompany L Will "Field. Fred Kennedy
and Jim Elton were in the hospital when
ne wrote on Oct. 3d, but wero not dan
gerously ill. Many of the boys are
"dumpy," but able lo drill.
Referring to their trip over on the
Australia, he says: "We were treated
like dogs. I have often fed bogs better
than we were fed. The supplies put on
board for ns we never saw . unless we
paid for them. Yes, we did see them,
but they were on the table in the cabin.
The donation of tobacco made by the
Durham company we also paid for, and
after my money was gone I went with
out a smoke. Beside, we went to bed
many a night hungry."
Letters published in the Oregonian re
cently verify these statements, and make
the blood of every citizen boil as he
thinks of the manner in which our boys
have been treated. Many of them, in
deed most of them, were from homes of
luxury, and their bravery and patriot
ism in leaving all for their country is
thus rewarded. The question arises,
why should it follow that because a man
is a private in an army, no matter what
his pieviouB record may be, be is to be
placed on a level with the lower animals
and be lorded over by men with whom,
in the every day walks of liie, perhaps,
be would not deign to associate?
The Lara; ette Entertainment.
The interest taken in anything given
by our public schools was shown Satur
day night when the Vogt opera house
was crowded with an audience eager to
hear the Lafayette entertainment. We
will defy any city in Oregon to excel
The Dalles in the standard of school
programs rendered. Whether we have
unasual talent or whether the interest
and energy manifested by our proficient
teachers, assisted by parents who en
courage the children, is accountable for
the successes acheived, we know not;
but certain It is that they can't be beat.
Saturday evening was not an exception
to the rule, and choruses, solos, essays,
tableaux and recitations showed that
talent and training wer both predomi
nant. To mention any particular numbers
would not be justice to the rest, but we
cannot refrain from noticing the two
tibleanx, "France Consoling the God
dess" and "Unveiling the Lafayette
Monument." In the former Miss Anna
Haslam represented the Goddess, of Lib-
a.-ty and Carrie Zeigler.France. In the lat
ter George Ruch, mounted on a pedes
tal, represenedt the statue of Lafayette,
which Clarence Gilbert unveiled, and
the little children dropping their tribute
of flowers, made a beautiful scene as the
red light was thrown on it. The chorus
"Marseilles Hymn" and"Battle Hymn of
the Republic," which were sung by sev
eral children dressed in costume, was
particularly pleasing, the march being
executed perfectly and the singing good.
But we must refrain, for each number
is deserving of mention, but space for

The institute opened with a chorus
"Greeting Glee." Miss Grace Grahamt
read an interesting paper upon Reading-.
She mentioned a number of good meth
ods and devices to be employed in teach
ing reading. A general discus sion fol
lowed, developing the fact that mora
supplementary reading along tbe line ol
Biography, History, Geography and
Travel should be supplied, county Supee

in this direction.
Miss'Kate Davenport read A paper on
Writing, showing that if the best of re

Superintendent Gilbert called attention.
to the fact that it is a great deal cheaper
to buy this material in bulk and furnish
it to the children, than to allow them,
each to buy their own.
Principal J. T. Neff gave an interest
ing talk upon the methods of teaching; .
Mrs. R. R. Allard recited a pathetic
poem entitled "Oa Guard." It called
up imaginary scenes in Manila.
The meeting adjourned at 12 o'clock
for lunch, which was served in the old -school
building, the ladies of the dis
trict having brought forth a generous
supply of the good things that make
man contented. The teachers displayed
wonderful aptitude along this line.
The dedication exercises took place in.
the afternoon. A vocal chorus "Our
Nation" was first on the program. In

and over were spent, during the school
year of '97 and '98.
Dr. P. G. Barrett then gave a thorough
review of the history and organization,
of the district, telling what a struggle
they had in 1877 to raise the necessary
funds with which to build the old

Fnneral Will Take Place at the M. K.
Church Tomorrow Afternoon.
The body of Mrs. Joseph Erhart was.
brought to the city on last evening's
train, accompanied by ber husband and
daughter, Miss Edna. They were met
at the depot by members of tbe Eastern
Star, of which order Miss Erhart is a

Rev. J. H. Wood, in the absence of the
pastor of the First Baptist church, of
which deceased was a member. -
Mrs. Alieo Erhart, whose maiden
name was Laycoek, was born in Placer
county, California, and was 44 years of
age. She has resided in The Dalles for .
the past sixteen years, and has always
