Three cars of sheep passed through
last night from tie Willamette Valley
on their way to Spokauo.
Wool ig slowly but surely beginning
to arrive. Today the Wasco warehouse
received two heavy wagon Iads of the
product from the Deschutes.

horse loads left for Antelope where they

There has been a good deal of com

A man giving the name of Martin
I'ines and clulmlng to bo a resident of
Spokane, applied to the nlghtwatehnian
bout 2 o'clock this morning for lodging,
saying he was 111 and out of funds. He
ia apparently quite a sick man and is
being cared for at the city jail.
Deputy Sheriff F. Sexton and J. C.
Meina left this morning for Salem with
Geo. McKinnon, who was adjudged in
sane yesterday. McKinnon is quite
harmless but is suffering from the effects
of a runaway accident in which his
skull was fractured.
It is without doubt that the Hook and
Ladder Co., need a new truck. This
mornings alarm proved that the present
apparatus ia practically of little value.
In coming out of the house the front
j wheel on the truck was cramped under
the ladder and it was some minutes be
fore the matter could be remedied.
This should not have occurred but the
old truck lias seen so unich service and
has been patched up 10 much that it is
even a wonder that it holds together.
The matter should be taken in hand and
some means adopted for securing for
those who are willing to serve the city
without pay something that Is modern
and that will be of more service than
the present apparatus.
After lodge lust night the Modern
Woodmen o' America gave a very
pleasant entertainment to the members
and a number of invited guests. Thero
were several selections from a graphs
phone secured for the oceasslon, after
which Messrs. Long and Gifford de
lighted the audience with a clarionet
duet. A reading by Mrs. Kddon was
greatly appreciated, after which the
star number on the evening's program
was rendered. It was a solo by Mr.
Geo. Ross, whom to many of the au
dience was not known to be a musician.
However, he acquitted himself In such
a manner that he was conlpelied to re
spond to several encore. His instru
ment was rather antiquated, being one
of the old style band organs, but never
theless Mr, Ross proved himself to be
an entertainer of no mean note. After
tho program dancing was the order, and,
with Trof. Itrigfeld at the piano, was a
most pleasant pastime.

The weather report says we are to
have occasional rains tomorrow. Let
them eontinne ; we care not how it ponrs
while the atmosphere is so clear and
delightful. This morniug, however, we
thought from the look of the Klickitats
we might expect enow.
Woold it not be splendid idea for a

The board of fire delegates held
meeting last night to consider the appli
cation of the South Side Hose Company
No. 5, to become permanent organiza
tion and to be equipped by the city. It
was recommended by them that the
council at its next meeting equip the
company with a hose cart and bose.
We bavo heard nothing regarding
petition being started for the early
closing of our stores during July and
August. It only requires the energy of
some enterprising man or determined
woman to get this petition circulated
and signed. Just as soon as our mer
chants find it is the wish of the ladies,
it will be done.
In spite of our anxiety for news con
cerning the fate of our bowlers at Salem
last night, only the meager, unwelcome
news came that they bad been beaten
by the Illihee team, which came out
twenty-seven points ahead. It makes
quite a difference to thoe interested
here just bow many games they won or
lost. Twenty-seven points ia not much
of a victory unless onr team failed on
games. But we must wait patiently for
the return ot the bowlers on the evening
The ladies of the Good Intent Society
of the Methodist church were delight
fully entertained by Mrs. H. P. Lee, at
her home over Pease & Mays' store
yesterday afternoon, about twenty
members being present. Mrs. Lee
served a delicious lunch during the
afternoon. A large number of tbe mem
bers of the Ladies Aid Society also met
at the home of Mrs. James Snipes, on
the hill yesterday. A splendid program
was given and the afternoon passed most
pleasantly with conversation, etc., and
was greatly enjoyed.

W. H. Butts met with an accident at
4 o'clock this cfternoon, which we much
fear will prove a serious one to a man of
his age, especially as he has scarcely re
covered from a siege of the urippe. Mr.
Butts was standing cn the crosswalk on
Second street, between French's bank
and Nielsen's store, when a runaway
team camo down the street. They were
not attached to a wagon, but the harness
was on them and as one endeavored to
run one way and the other another, he
could not gel out of their way, but whs
thrown down and a bad gash cut in his
head. He was also unconscious, not
even coming to as be was placed in an
express wagon and taken to his home.
Mrs. II. Lauretsen and daughter, Miss

Harry Patterson, who has ben foing

there, however, has taken the precau
tion to write here concerning him, and
no doubt will receive a letter from the
church which will open somebody's
eyes, but not contain church ere
The best of good times was that had
by about twenty of tbe young lady
friends of Miss Harriet Marden, who re
cently retain d from Washington, they
being invited by Mrs. O. W. Morgan to
spend last evening with her at the home
of Dr. Belle Rinehart. A surprise pro
gram was the novel teature of the ev n-
ing, every guest being required to con
tribute something to the "amazement"
of the others, and attempt to call Into
play talents which they failed to possess,
and thns as one after another gave solos,
recitations and speeches, the latter be
ing on such subjects as "Woman's
Rights," Politics, etc., tbe remainder of
the company positively grew hilarious
in their enthusiasm. Another pleasant
diversion was a guessing -contest in
which Miss Nona Ruch was the success
ful contestant, and Miss Alma Schmidt
the winner of the booby. About tbe
walls of the parlors wore pinned slips of
paper of every imaginable shape, and
containing parts of quotations which by
placing them together decided tbe
partners for lunch, and when all were
seated at the tables, these quotations
were read and the names of tbe authors
guessed. The refreshments could not
have been more tempting, and were
served In juet such a maimer as to make
tbem taste all the better. Mrs. Morgan
is a genius when it comes to entertain
ing, and fills every minute with some
thing attractive to her guests.

At Columbus, O., three of the lead
ing churches Congregational, Methodist
and Baptist have adopted the rule that
women remove their hats. There is op
position among the women, but the
movement promises to make gradual
progression. At the Baptist church
several maids are employed to wait upon
the ladies as they enter, take their hats
and wraps and issue checks for them.
The Salt Lake papers all speak well of
the Bobby Gaylor Company, which
plays here tomorrow night. The Tribune
says ho is a very sharp-witted IriBh
comedian, and that whenever he visits

James S. Stewart, editor of the Fossil
Journal, went all the way from Fossil to
Portland to hear "Ian Maclaren." Mr.
Stewart is one of the liveliest, brightest
editors of tho state, and never misses
an opportunity to hear something good.
He was brought up in the same town
with John Watson and they played to'
gether as boys. That is one reason he
was eo anxious to see him.
The Dalles zephyrs have again been
dealing in real estate today, and it has
come up with a vengeance, much to the
lisgustof teamsters who have had to
encounter it. A number of wool teams
came in this morning in spite of the
sand. The wool w hich is now arriving
is said to bo that from the country
nearer town, none from the Antelope
section having as yet made its appear
ance. Lare loads of pelts are now be
ing brought in every day.
Portland scalpers huvu been taught a
lesson in buying up theater tickets by
their exieiinc in that regard with
the seats for the Rustonians, and they
are now returning them to the box
office. The city council has also passed
an ordinance providing a brokers' and
speculators' licence fur those dealing in
theater tickets. A license fee of ff20 per

Wednesday being (he eightieth anni
versary of Odd Fellowship, it was de
cided by the members of the order in
this city to hold anniversary exercises
on ttie regular meeting nwht of the
Rebekahs. Accordingly, about eighty
members and guests were present at the
a., oi r. nan to enjoy the program pre
pared. The literary and musical pro
gram consisted of a solo by Dr. Doane,
a duet by Messrs. Craudall and Doane,
solo by Miss Maie Cushing, (with
guitar accompaniment? and a short ad
dress by Hon. John Michell regarding
the order and its, benefits. The grand
march, which was led by the leading
officers of the orders, and which at once
proceeded to the small hall in quest of
the banquet, was somewhat different
from the usual custom which prevails,
from the fact that every gentle-ran was
required to have a partner, and could
not got a '.'lady of his own," but must
have some one's else sweetheart or wife.
That may account for the fact that the
banquet, which was served by A. Keller,
was said to be his very beet effort In
that line, and to have been also the
most enjoyable the guests ever sat down

Retarding the Death of Mrs. N. C.WiUoa.
The Arizona Republican has the fol
lowing concerning tbe death of Mrs
Norman Wilson at Phoenix:
"In the passing away of Mrs. N. C.
Wilson, whose death occurred ehorllv
after 11 o'clock ou Wednesday evening,
Phoenix as a community suffers tbe loss
of one of those kindly spirits whose in
fluence is to touch the beart and to stir
the soul to nobler and better aspirations
Kind of heart, generous to a fault, with
a genial hospitality which extended
itself alike to stranger and friend,
talented, always filled with a desire to
make happiness for others, to those who
were so fortunate as to call her friend'
ship their's, she lacked nothing of a per'
fection of womanly tenderness and gentle
Christianity. Her fortitude, maintained
far beyond her physical strength and
almost to the last moment, inspired
hope in the hearts of those who watched
tenderly for possible improvement. A
trip to the mountains had been planned
and its possible benefits anxiously an
ticipated by all ; but upon tbe day set
for departure the gentle spirit calmly
and peacefully took flight to those at
titudes to which the soul alone aspires,
The deceased waj born in Moulton,
Iowa, April 3, 1875, and has been a res
Ident of Phoenix for over four years, In
which time she has gained an ever
widening circle of most sincere friends,
It is two years since, as Leona Woold-
ridge, she married Mr. Wilson, and tbe
deep affection existing between the two
had ever been tbe cause for admira
tion among those who knew tbem best.
As one of the most genial spirits in the
commercial life of Phoenix Mr. Wilson
will receive the sympathy of bis asso
ciates, and the family that of the entire
. Iallra I'ulillo Schools.

Mr. l-nmlors ( II l S Si
J..y S!tz.i!), who is well known ia
the Dalles, having gone to school her
foi- a uuiuber of years, has just returned
from the Philippines and was in the,
city last Tuesday on his way Lome,
which is at Burnt Ranch, Wheeler couuty.
He enlisted in company I, Fourteenth
regiment, last year, while it was sta
tioned at Vancouver.
List fall be strained himself, and for
several months was in the hospiul at
Manila. He was out in time to engage
in some of the early fights with the
Filipinos, but was again taken sick and
eventually discharged on account of dis
ability. IU left Manila March 10th on
the Arixona, in company with about
150 other discharged men, and reached
San Francisco April 6ih.
"Going over ou the transport," said
Mr. Saltiman, "we encountered enough
to take the patriotism out of any mar.
Several days before reaching Honolulu
our meat all spoiled. We continued to
eat it until we reached Honolulu. Wo
were fed on it for twelve davs there.
and then lived for eighteen days mor
before reaching Manila, with no other
kind of meat. '
"I saw strong men so weak with
hunger they could scarcely get out ot
bed. If the spoiled meat was eaten It
gave one cramps so badly that starva
tion was preferable.
"After we reached Manila the food
was better. Until the Filipino war
broke ont we bad frozen beef from
Australia, aud it was good. After tba
trouble began we were given canned
beef, and half of it was spoiled.
' I was only in one tight with the
rebels. That was at Cingalon, February
5th. The battle beuan about four mi lee
out from Manila, and from' 7 o'clock ia
the morning until 3 in tbe afternoon it
was a hot affair.
"We advanced steadily, but slowly,
firing all tbe time. The rebels woald
turn their guns upside down and bold
them high over their heads and fire.
Ia this way nothing but their banda
and tbe guus were visible above tbe
trenches. Of course they couldn't bit
us shooting in that fashion, but they
kept up a hot fire until we were within
twenty feet of them. Then they broke
and ran into the canebrake.
"We followed them, and found them
in trenches oa the other side. Driving:
them from there they fled to a block-
bouse not fur away. It was while ia
this second trench that the hottest
"Tbe rebels who were fighting us that
day were Aguinaldo's crack men. They
wore white helmets and bad good guns,
and if any one tells you they will not
fight, don't you believe it. If they ever
learn to shoot like our boys can, they
will be a hard lot to handle.
"I think it will take a long time to
conquer these islands. They will never
be worth the lives and money it will
take. There are eo many natives that
killing a few thousand doesn't count.
There are millions to take their places.
"In each battle there are a number ot
men in the rear armed only with knives.
When a man in front is shot, his place
and gun is taken by one of thesf.
"Carbines and sixshooters are the
weapons Uncle Sam can use to best ad
vantage there. Bayonets and sabers are
worthless, and are really in the way.
"Tbe boys there think Dewey's mis
take was in not sailing out when he had
destroyed the Spanish fleet. But Dewey
Is tbe idol there. All of the boys would
like to see him put in charge. They
think Otis is a good office man, but be
is too slow for active field work."
Mr. Saltzman says if there are any
boys there who do not want to come
home he couldn't find tbem.
"For a few days after the fighting be
gan, he said, "while excitement ran
high, they forgot all about home, but
that soon passed away, and they are
longing for home again."
