VicTOKii, B. C, May 21 The main
portion of the city of Dawson was df
trovei by fire on April 26, causing
los of 11,00.000. In all, Ill bailding,
including the British North American
back, were burced.
Reports say Ite fire occurred in the
very heart of the business center of the
city, beginning near the opera-house, on
tbe water front, and spreading with un
it tail rapidity. It vat driven by a
strong north wind, destroviog every
thing in iti war on tbat ttreet down to
and including Donahue & Smith's es
tablishment. The fire then tjok in ail of the water
front building abreast of the tame
block". It crossed the street, tnrned
through and epread over to Second
ttreet, covering the principal portion of
Daw too, leaving it all in ashes, with the
firemen helpless to do anything. The
flames spread with ench rapidity tbat
tbe people became panicatricken and un
able to tare anything in the war of farni-
tare, good and clothing.

It represents their accumulation for the

The second lecture which the members
of tbe Taine class have provided for the
people of The Dalles occurred last even
ing at tbe Congregational church. Mr.
Geo. II. Himes, of Portland, secretary
of tbe Oregon Historical Association,
was the speaker of tbe evening and read
aa interesting paper upon "The Early
Literature of Oregon." Mr. W. H. Wil
soo introdocad the speaker with a few
comments upon tbe desirability of tbe
inhabitants of this state becoming ac
qnaicted with its early history, and
stale I in this connection tbat knowledge
should bin at borne. Mr. Himes'
paper began with the first mention of
Oregon in literature, wbich occarred in
the writings of Jonathan Carver about
tbe middle of the 17th century. From
that time until recent years the increas
ing mention of the great Northwest in
the writings of tbe world was traced
with much detail and told in an exceed
ingly interesting manner. Tbe first
printing press ever in the Pacific North
west was brought from tbe Sandwich
Islands early in the thirties and n:ed to
print tbe first copies cf tbe early Oregon
papers. This press, Mr. Himes stated,
was now in bis office in Portland. Tbe
lecture was well attended, ard those
who were present felt nnder mnch obli
gation to Mr. Himes for his interesting
researches and to the Taine class for
providing such an interesting occasion.

AID THE MONUMENT FUND
By Attending- the fteonloa la Portland
Many Dalles people are anxious to

splendid opportunity for all to assist in
this grand work.
A reunion has been arranged to be
held in Portland on Ma) 30th and 31st
and Judb 1st and 2. id. A fine program
lias been planned (or the 30lh, which

tion of tbe amplified work of tbe order at

June 1st and 2nd there will be enter
tainments given at Cordray'a, to which
the admission will be 23, 50 and 75 cents.
Our people are to be given tbe best of

Tbe D. P. & A
X. Co. has not only
been of inestimable benefit to The Dalles
and surrounding country in a direct way,
bnt through the advertisement given
the line of steamers, tb Colombia river
valley baa also rerired much advertis
ing and benefit it would otherwise never
have obtained. The Ciiboxiclb job de
partment has just piinted a pamphlet
descriptive ol the scenery along the
river, wbicb, it w do say it ourselves,
is a piece of work any office of far better
facilities might well be proud to put its
imprint on. It is composed of cuts oi
all the beautiful spots along the river,
and descriptive matter is interspersed
witn tbem. They make very pretty
souvenirs, as well as so advertisement
which cannot fail to attract tonrists to
this line as tbe one where grand scenery
may be found.
