a good share of our tonpeople were

Since C. M. Cornett has taken poeset
sion of the Pnneville stage line he has
made numerous changes. Among others
he has increased the stock and is mak
ing better time between here and the
above named point. The lime of de
parture from The Dalles remains the
same, but the stage will arrive in Print,
vi!leal6a. m. and will leave thereat
noon which will give merchants and
residents of that place ample time to
answer their correspondence received
from northwestern points on the same
day, which will be a great convenience.
On almost every excursion on the
river there comes the repor ithat some
one has been hurt or drowned. These
rumors are very annoying to persona in
terested in making the affair a success,
for they create much anxiety to persons
naving iriends and relatives on board
the boat. Yesterday it was rumored
that a child had fallen overboard and
drowned, while shortly after the rumor
was so changed that it was a man who
was the victim, How these reports get
out is a mystery, but should be stopped.
Last evening many mothers who had
children aboard were on the verge of
hysterics thinking that perhaps it was

Arson was attempted twice in Ppo.
kano on the night of the Fourth and the
following morning. The home of Arthur
E. Houchins was soaked with coal oil
oy tne vanuais oeiore the match, was
applied. The oil had been spattered on
walls and on furniture with the inten
tion of making a thorongb job of it, but
the blaze bad not made much headway
when it was discovered, and the neigh
burs broke into the house and saved a
large part of the furniture. The IIou
chins family was absent from the city
and none of them had been in the house
for several days. The origin of the fire
is a mystery. The fire department ar
rived in time to save the house after It
had been damaged about half its value.
The other attempt to destroy valuable
property was at the Sacred Heart school
A large Chinese bomb was thrown
through one of the second-story window
ipto a vacant room, where it exploded

The bomb was evidently exploded in
the building after 11p.m., as Father
Kusters was about the building until
that hour and did not hear the ex
plosion. He discovered the evidence of
it in the room Wednesday morning.

(Vera Greatly I'leaied.
Although a good share of our peole
had uone out of the city Tuesday,
nevertheless when the members of the
National Editorial Association arrived
at 3:45 Tuesday afternoon there was a
larite crowd to meet them and make
them feel at home. There were thirteen

contained the 35i edi'ors and friends
waa cut In two and til of the sleepers
were drawn to the Umatilla House,
where the occupants were dined, some
200 being seated at the first table.
While these were eating the rest of
the party were being entertained by
our citizens and the committee ap
pointed, the members of which deserve
much credit. When the first table was
cleared the rest of the party were taken
to the hotel and were seated to a spread
that would be hard to equal cant of the
mountains. Many editors were heard
to remark that it was the best meal
they bad partaken of eince they had
been on the trip, and complimented our
people on being able to prepare such a
spread. Messrs. Sinnott A Fish exerted
themselves to the utmost in giving the
dinner, and indeed deserve much credit
for their labors.
Ttie tables wero tastily decorated with
palms and flowers, while in the line of
edibles our home fruit was predominant,
and many were the remarks made by
our visitors about such delicious straw
berries and cherries.
There was but little time in which to
show the editora around bo it whs
mottly devoteil to conversation, during
which our resources ami surrounding
country were given the beneflt.- Since
the editors arrivtd in Oregon they have
been fbo.vn more courtesy than in any
other state thrt ujh w hich they passed.
They left at 5 o'clock for Portland,
having spent an hour and three quarters
in our city. They expretsed themselves
as being greatly pleased with The
Dalles, and were only sorry that more
time could not be devoted to seeing the
surrounding country and places of
inteiet. Their last words wire praises
for our people aud thanking us for the

his boat was picked np, floating in the
Columbia river, by L. Dupnis of Van-
couver, and its occupant was mlscing.
Scott left Bridal Veil Sunday mora
ing in hia boat, bound for Duncan lake.
That was the last Been of him.
About 6 o'clock Monday morning Mr.
Dupuis discovered a small clinker-built
fkiff floating in the river, apparently
without an occupant. He took a small
boat and pulled out. The craft was
empty with the exception of a few
articles of clothing, and a Winchester
rifle. Mr. Dupuis towed the skiff ashore
and immediately began an investigation.
The following-named articles were found
In the boat: A coat, hat, Winchester
rifle with one shell discharged and the)
hammer thrown back, an umbrella, av
kid gicve and a quart bottle about one
half full of whiskey.
In a pocket of the coat was an en
velope addressed to J. J. Scott, Bridal
Veil, Or. The envelope bore the post-
mat k of Seattle, May 24, 1809, and
contained a receipt for an express uioney
order for the amount of 2.
Mr. Dupuis immediately telephoned
to Bridal Veil and asked for information
concerning J. J. Scott of that place. It
was ascertained that he was a resident
there and had left in a boat Sunday
morning for Dure in lake and nothing
hid been seen nor heard of him since.
When the boat was picked up, there
was one oar banning in the lock. Three
or four locks were scattered about the
bottom, but no oars were In the boat.
The skiff is a valuable one, clinker
