of the facilities found there for handling

will last ten days.
"It never rains, hut it pours" wonld
be applicable to the situation In Th
Dalles as regards entertainments. For
the next month we are to have anv
amount of traveling shows, interspersed
witn numberless home affairs. Beside
the circus which will pitch its tent here
on the 10:h of next month, the bill
boards are today covered with posters
announcing the appearance of Norris
Bros.' Equine and Canine Carnival.
The Portland papers have been speak
ing very favorably of this show, and it
Is no doubt good one.
We are always pleased to note the
progress being made by Dalles boys,
and to find that they are filling posi

their lots have been cast. A private
letter received from Ray Logan yester
day tells of his appointment as house
surgeon at St. Vincent's hospital in
Portland. Ray has for some time been

the university of Oregon, and it is en

A letter from Dr. Siddall tells of his
arrival at Log Cabin, on the dividing

possessions, where are about fifty
houses, mostly made of cloth. He says
the trip over the railroad is pertectiy
grand. Knowing that the doctor was
from The Dalles and might get lonesome
without a fire, Skagway got up one for
his special benefit the night before he
left. Seven buildings burned and the
loss was about $17,000. Being in the
night it succeeded in unfitting him for
his long trip if nothing else.
Our attention was today called to a
caseot actual wai.t it our city. It is
that of a woman with three children
two toys and a girl who came here
from the Sound expecting to receive
word and assistance from a brother in
Montana. Being disappointed in that
regard she is now In need of help from
some source. They are stopping at the
Cosmopolitan Hotel and we understand
seem to have nothing to eat but potatoes,
and very few of them. Here is an op

and what they are not. The lecture
will be free. Go and hear Dr. Fluno.
Somehow the report has gained
ered-nce that Mrs. C. J. Stubling will
soon sell out her greeuhouse and go out
of the floral business. Upon inquiry
we find there is no truth iu the state

If any class of people on earth deserve
a pleasant vacation trip it is the weary
school teacher, and this year they are to'
have a splendid opportunity in Oregon,
and it does not take a great amount of
money either. State School Superin
tendent Ackerman has received a letter
from General Passenger Agent Mark
bam, of the Southern Pacific, announc
ing that his road will grant a (35 round-
trip rate for the National Educational
Association meeting at Los Angeles for a
party of 100 or over, the tickets to be on
sale July 5 to 0, with the final limit for
return passage fixed at August 15.
From the amount of property which is
changing hands and the number of resi
dences that are being built, it is evident
the people of The Dalles have great
hopes for Its future, and are willing to
invest their money here. Among the
real estate changes being made on the
hill we learn that R. Rorden has pur
chased the Rabine property, now oc
cupied by F. Sampson, C. L. Phillips
has bought the Whittaker property
opposite his store, and having moved
the housb north on the lot will transfer
his building to that side ot Eighth
street; F. H. Wakefield now owns the
old Beczley property on the south side
of Sixth treet and and is moving the
old buildings back and will soon erect a
residence on the site. This will greatly
Improve that portion of the bluff, and
repair buildings which have for some
time been an eye sore to passers-by.

last night and when he reached the cor

man who excitedly told him fellow had

Not suspecting anything, he followed the

out and told him to hold up his hands.
Thinking they were joklnst, he attempted
to laugh It off, but was told to obey at
the point of two revolvers, which, of
course.he hastened to do. The man who
accompanied proceeded to investigate
and secured his watch and 43. The
watch they handed back, but, for some
reason, took two letters from his pocket,

Tha Governor's Action Commended.
At a regular meeting of James W.
Nesmith Post, No. 32, Department of
Oregon, G. A. R., the following resolu
tion was unanimously adopted :
Ketvlted, That the members of this
post do most heartily thank our gover
nor, Hon. T. T. Geer, for his action in
regard to asking for the return of the
Oregon volunteers now in the Philippine
islands. The prominent part taken by
the Oregon regiment in the recent
battles around Manila, entirely refutes
the idea that these brave young men
are not in the right place. We do not
believe for a moment that a single mem
ber of that regiment wishes to shirk his
duty or to return home without the
honor of having been "iu at the death"
of the insurrection.

published in the local papers, and a copy
