The Oregonian of last week reports
Astoria as being confronted with a con
stantly increasing school attendance
and a constantly decreasing assessment
list. The same condition exists in a
lesser degree id The Dalles. In '94 tax
es were assessed on a total roll of $1,413,-
434 by this district, with an average
daily attendance in the schools of 414;
in '95 the roll decreased to $1,280,370
and the dally attendance increased to
517; in '90 the roll decreased to $1,186,-
151, and the attendance increased to 584 ;
in '97 the roll increased to $1,193,101,
and the attendance increased to 590 ; in
'98 the roll decreased to $1,172,479, and
the attendance increased to 600. The
present roll for collection of taxes this
year has increased to $1,181,703, and the
school attendance ia the largest In the
history of the district.
Two weeks ago we were sleigh riding;
today we feel that a picnic would be the
most appropriate pastime. In every
community there are croakers, who, as
the saying is, "shake hands with the
devil before they meet him." These un
fortunates are now borrowing trouble re.
garding the fruit trees, saying that they
are beginning to put forth buds, and
that the cold weather, which is sure to
follow, will nip them and so cause a fail
ure of the crop. Those who bave made
horticulture a study inform us that there
is not the slightest cause for concern as
yet, as there are no eigna of buds. One
gentleman tells us that he has been a
resident of this section since '03, and
there has been but one failure of the
fruit crop since that time, and that was
in 1878, The peach crop has been
partial failure in a few instances. Let
us not cross the bridge before we reach
it; but enjoy the pleasant weather, a.
best we can.

It baa been mentioned by one of our
citizens that some compensation be ren- j
dered to those who at fires ruin their
clothes. For some cause or other the
fires in thia city lately have occurred on
Sunday when the majority of people
bave on their best. In many instances
men render valuable assistance to prop
erty ownera and the city and by so doing
damage their wearing apparel to a great
extent. It has often been noticed and
commented on numerous times, that
those who have the least at stake do the
larger part of the work at fires. It Is
suggested that either the property owu-
ers or the city should make some com
pensation for the loss sustained by hav
ing clothes ruined by water and other
wise. Our fire companies are volunteer
and their services are always at the dis
posal of the city. However, a man
working for small wages can ill affoid
to lose several dollars for clothes ruined
at each conflagration. Somebody has got
to do the work. Who usually does it?
We will leave it with you. Give those
who are willing to work and save prop
erty for others, as good as they had when
they went to the assistance of those who
needed It immediately.

Victor Ward, youngest aon of "Long"
Ward, an old-time aettler, and one of
the wealthiest farmera of Wasco county,
and Miss Lottie E. Baker, of The Dalles,
wero married nt the Columbia hotel,
Vancouver, at 9 o'clock Saturday even
ing. They were very sly about it, in
tending to surprise friends. Mr. Ward
has been in the city for about three
weeks, and Mies Baker came down about
a week ago, and found all the arrange
ments for the wedding complete. With
out eaying anything to their friends they
went over to Vancouver Saturday even
ing, and were quietly married. At this
style of getting married deprived the
friends of the couple of the opportunity
of making the usual wedding present,
Mr. Ward presented bis bride with a
check for $1000, to make np for this.
The happy pair will return to The Dalles
this morning, and will take up their
residence on the old Ward homestead,
twelve miles from The Dalles.

It'is said that the bill to create the
county of Wheoler may be reconsidered
having lacked one vote of ber,. passed.
It received just 30 votes. Had there been
a full attendance it is believed it would
have passed, and it is not at all im
probable even yet that the vote by
which it was defeuted will not be recon
sidered and the bill put to another vote.
Hawson led the opposition to the bill.
He was loaded for bear, and in his
speech aiiainst it probably made the
oratorial effort of his life. He claimed
that the new county would cutoff the
beet third of Gilliam county, Including
nearly all of the county's best timber
and water supply. He characterized
the bill as an injustice to the people of
his county who had remonstrated against
It, and would be left with nothing but
debt with which to carry on business if
the dismembering were permitted. His
plea waa that the question of dismem

At 5:15 last evening the shrill whittle
ing of a locomotive waa heard and al
most Immediately the peala of the fire
bell rang out aunonncing to our citizens
another fire. It waa found that the
Columbia hotel was in flames and with
in a few minutes the Hook and Ladder
Co. was on the scene, followed closely
by the Columbia Hose Co., who in six
minutes from the time the alarm
sounded, had a stream of water playing
on the flames. The Jackson Engine Co,
had their engine located at the intersec
tion of Second and Court streetaand did
most effective work. The fire caught
from aparka falling on the roof from a
flue in the northeast portion of the
building, Mr. Toomey, proprietor of the
hotel, formed a bucket brigade and was
doingj effective work when the wind
which waa blowing furiously at the time
caught the flames and spread them
rapidly, so when the firemen arrived it
appeared as though the whole east side
of the hotel waa on fire. Many ex
pressed themselves as confident the
building waa doomed and also a great
portion of that end of town. However,
the firemen worked gallantly and too
much praise cannot be given them, for
it waa one of the best 'ought fires that
ever occurred in the city. Inside of fifty
five minutea from the time the alarm
waa Bounded the fire waa out. Th

Our water commissioners are to be
congratulated, for yesterday's fire
proved that the new system which was
recently put in is a decided success.
There were seven streams from the city
water worka playing on the building,
and at the time, the indicator at the
engine house ahowed ninty-five pounds
presaure. This alone is undoubtedly the
cause of laving a greater portion of the
town from a conflagation similiar to the
ones of '91 and '98.
During all the other large fires there
has always been a lack of water but
from present indications we need have
no further fears in this line for na aoon
as all streams were cut off the resevoir
showed that the water bad fallen but
four inches. The O. R. & N. Co. did
most excellent service and the pressure
from their pump house was sufficient to
blow several of the nozzles off.
With this greatamount of water pour
ing into the building the house was fair
ly flooded and the flames checked. The
entire roof of the east wing of the hotel
was burned and charred but the rest of j
the building was not damaged only by
water. As yet the actual losses cannot
be ascertained, but it is estimated that
T. T. Nicholas, owner of the building
will sustain a loss of between four and
five thousand dollars. No insurance. J.
A. Toomey, lessee, will lose about $400
with no insurance, while numerous
roomers lost a great deal of their belong
ings. Estebenet and Esping'a bowling alleys
were flooded with water buttbey went to
work immediately after the fire and
drained their building and today the
alleys are in as fine condition as nsnal.
Chas. Frank, proprietor of the Butchers
and Farmers Exchange will sustain a
loss of about $500, mostly caused by
breakage and leakage, for everything in
his place of business was taken out. He
is fully covered by insurance. Some
things were removed from Wra. Jones'
cigar store but his loss waa ao trivial
that it ia not estimated . Further partic
ulars in regard to the losses will be given
as soon as we are able to ascertain them.
The Vallea Clnb Minstrel I'lay to
Crowded Honna Maoy Word of
1'raUa In their Uehair.
More than the unexpected happened
Saturday evening when The Dalles Club
Minstrels presented their show to the
public. The production has been looked
forward to for some time as one of the
events of tne season and a more happily
surprised audience could not have been
The boys acquitted themselves in a man
ner that showed they were far superior
to many traveling troupes that visit our
city and by coming belore the public
more frequently would undoubtedly be
come artists in their respective lines.
The Vogt opera house was crowded and
it is estimated there Here four hundred
and fifty people present. This is noth
ing more than a show of appreciation
which is right and proper, for no matter
when called upon, by whom or for what
purpose, the "boys" have always lent a
helping band.
At 8:40 when the curtain arose and
ahowed the entire company on the stage
they wero greeted with rounds of ap
plause. After the opening overture the
first thing announced on the program by
the interlocu tor, N". J. Slnnott, was the
comic so.ig, "Mr. Johnson Don't Get
Gay," by J. F. Hampshire, who ac
quitted himself in his usual facinating
way. Next was a bass solo by William
Frank, who, indeed, has a fine yolce and
without doubt will be a singer of some
note. Arthur Clark followed with a
comic song entitled "I Don'tCare if You
Nebber Come Back" and was well re
ceived. That beautiful song, "She Was
Bred in Old Kentucky," was then ren
dered by Cbas. Clarke in bia aweet
voice, and brought down a storm f
applause. He very gracefully responded
to an encore and sang "Just One Girl,"
and when through was greeted with
r.mnd.4 ci applause. W. C. Croseen 'My Ann Elizer" and made a
vn-Kt hit. This ended the first part, bat
hetwren songs the tnd men, who were
Hollister, Crossen, Hampshire and
Arthur Clarke, made some very clever
local hits, which were appreciated f-ir
their originality and appropriateness.
The second part opened with a duet
by Haxel Waud and Lela Kelsay, en
titled "How I Love My Lu." They
were warmly received but when they
finished the house simply went wild
with applause. For such young children
they did better than was expected, ia
fact it was one of the best number on
the program. The "Quaker City
Quartette," composed of W. Barrett, F.
Snipes, C. Heppner and Wm. Erank,
then appeared on the stage and sang
several selections which pleased the au
dience greatly and waa all that could be
desired. The famous "Lorenzo Brothers'
locally known as Carey Ballard and
Claud Kelsay were the next attraction,
and from their first appearance on th
stage bad the entireattention of the au
dience. Their tumbling, jumping,
somersaults, and feata in thia line wm
well worth the price of admission alone.
The Legerdemain act by Messrs. Daw
son and Herouxwasone that held every
one in suspense for one trick so closely
followed by another required the utmoat
attention. It will be but a short time
until Mr. Dawson will rival the famous
A clever character sketch by Messrs.
Crossen and Frank "The Warmest
Babies in Coon Town" is especially de
serving of mention. They acquitted
themselves gracefully and were perfectly
at ease while on the stage. Their tarce
tragedy was cleverly executed and waa
warmly applauded, which showed that
the audience more than appreciated
their efforts.
J. F. Hampshire and Arthur Clarke in
their original sketch "Life in Alabam"
were superior to any time they hare yet
appeared before a Dalles house. The
are always good but this waa the time
they excelled themselves. Ia the first
of their sketch they took the part of on
oldcoupleand sang an old time song,
and then Mr. Clark in a ligbtniog
change appeared as a dandy and amus
ed the audience with a monologue for a
few minutea until Mr. Hampshire.tbefe-
male impersonator, put in an appearance
when they sang several songs in their
usual pleasing way, receiving rounds
of applause, and as an encore did some
very pretty dancing, introducing many
new and difficult steps.
The cake walk, which waa the grand
finale of the play was one of the beat ever
produced in the city. It is thought by
some had the "walkers" partaken ia
the grand cake walk given at the Irish
fair in Portland Friday, our "coons"
would have surely carried away the
prize. Fred Van Norden, in an excel
lent and easy manner, as master ol
ceremonies, introduced the couples aud
led the way. The first to appear were
the little girls, Hazel Waud in full dress
costume with Lela Kelsay on ber arm.
They did very creditably and held the
audience in a spell for no more graceful
couple were seen on the stage, Meesra.
Crossen and Barrett then came upon the
scene and from the applause they re
ceived one would bave thought the cake
was theirs. Next came Messrs. Parkins
and Ileroux and executed some very
pretty steps and were awarded several
rounds of applause. Messrs. Snipes and
Heppuer appeared in very pretty coa
tumee and with grace and cleverness gave
the spectators one of the prettiest dances
