The Dufur Dispatch tolls ns that "F,
C. Sexton, deputy sheriff of The Dil'es,
spent several diys in town working on
the Johnston burglary." Murder will

good man gone wrong.
Dottetive Ford arrived from Portland
last night and this morning returned

there Wednesday night.

looked clouded, the lightning flashed in
the east nnd everyone imagined they
smelt rain in the air. Indeed, many
declare they felt a few drops. That

indications soon passed away. The
lightning was probably what is termed
"heal lightning."
A Chicago paper says that members

V believe there was an nr.iini-.
passed by the city cjuncl ordering all
bicyclists to carry a lantern when riding
at night. If such is the case it should
be enforced and if not law should be
passed. We cannot escape serious ac
cidents if the present state of affairs
continue. Last night five cyclists came
up Third 6treet abreast, none earn ing
any kind of a light uor seemingly having
bells on their wheels. It was by mere
chance that a 'bugy going down the
street paieed them, ai.they eonld not be

Coroner Hart and George Talmar came
over from Goldendale Thursday evening
iu mo n esmngton siue oi the river
where a body was fouud floating in the
river that day. No inquest was held
and yesterday the body was buried near
the place where it was found. The man
was about 35 years of age, and .vaa well
dressed. In his pocket was found a
letter, but the writing had been so
blurred that it could not be read. Many
have thought it mieht be one of the
Whitney brothers, who were drowned
in the Snake; but the description did
nit tally with the one given of Elmer
Whitney, whose body was not found.
From the immense crowds which
throng the boats every morning bound
for the seaside and numerous camping
places along the river, it would 6eem
that The Dalles would soon be entirely
deserted. However, a few of tho best ol
us slill remain to carry in the duties
lelt behind. Truly Dalles people are
fortunate in being an situated that in a
few hours they may be "far from the
maddening crowd" (of which we form
a part) and by the side of the sea or in
some cool mountain resort. Such trips,
too, are so inexpensive that it is within
the reach of all tornjoy the opportunity
afforded. We do not appreciate this
fact as we would were we for a few years
shut out in some of the inland cities of
the state, where, with a large majority,
it is impossible to make these enjoyable

Tbe Walton caso ended in acquittal of
the accused, evidence not being suffi

the day yesterday on Mill creek. After

From Mr. H. T. Curnm, who came in
today from Wit-nlc, we learn that a dis
astrous fire ocurred In that neighbor

V. Lewis was burned to the ground and
all its contents. Occurring as It did in

that no time was given to save anything.

A dispatch in another column tells cf
the fate of an unfortunate vounsr ladv at
Arlington who dared reject a Portland
suitor. It would seem from the number
of cases of a similar nature that tl
young ladies now have but two courses
to persuo accept everv euitor who
presents himself or part with life as a
result of her refusal. Here is a eplen

advocates to get in a strong point, if it
has come to such a pass that a woman

best means to employ in such a case is
for the young ladv to carry a revolver

For some time the 7-months-old
daughter of D. C. Saling, of Ballston,
Or., has been suffering from what was
apparently an ailment of the throat.
The child was taken to a doctor, who
said that there was a gathering in the
throat, which in a few day a would be
rea Jv for the lance. A few days later
the child's grandmother noticed a small
pimple at the side ol the jaw, and upon
examination found the point of some
object imbedded in the flesh. Working
at this a moment, she succeeded in get
ting hold of it, and pulled out a feather
about two inches long. It is presumed
that the child bad, when in bed, put the
feather in her nifuth, and that it had
caught in her tonsils and the sharp
quill had worked i'.B way to the surface.

A number of Indians were seen on
our street today, which is quite an un
usual eight in these late years, and at
tracted no little attention. A few years
ago the presence of poor "Lo" in our
midst would not have been noticed,
when now it always creates more or less
commotion among the little folks and
dogs. These Indians, having read in
the columns of the Chronicle of a tribe
of Red Men having a wigwam here, con
cluded to come over and visit them, and
whin interviewed by a reporter informed
him that those who represented them
selves as Red Men were "hias cultos
Boston tillicums," and did not under

Yesterday JuJJ Fish received a paper
from an Illinois editor, who was a
member of the editorial excursion party
which visited our state recently. In
his write-up of their trip down the
Columbia, he gives The Dalles a eplen
did send-off, and speaks of tho dinner
served at the Umatilla in the best of
terms. He also mentioned tho large
salmon on display there, which rivaled
the Indians in tho attention it drew.
The complimentary terms which tbe
editors used in regard to tfie eurround
ings of the city, the cordiality with
which the people received them and the
dinner as they left The Dalles was
enough, to persuade those who listened
that they were highly pleased. The
only thing that marred the visit at all
was the short time given them here,
giving the proprietors of tho hotel no
time to prepare the second table and
visitors little time for eiijoying their
meal. Messrs. Douthit and Blakeley
deserved much credit for their efforts to
raise the sum required, which is never
a pleasant duty at best; the citizens also
did their part in responding, acd Sin
nott A Fish spared no pains to make the
spread a good one. They should, there

Last Friday a man came to Wilson's
livery stable In the East End and hired
one of his best horses saying he wanted
togooutin the country to get some
horses he had in pasture. As he did
not return Mr. Wilson became suspicious
and nad Sheriff Kelly write out to in

did and discovered there were no such
horses there. Mr. Wilson particularly
regrets the occurrence since tho horse
was a fine animal and beionired to his

Mr. and Mrs. V. II. Biggs came down
from Wasco last evening and will return

that is a favorite resort for Sherman

the curative powers of the water. He
says one man who went down all
crippled up with rheumatism, returned
and is able to walk around as well as
anyone. The only disadvantage is in
the accommodations afforded at the
hotel, or house rather, where all who do
not camp are compelled to stay.
There are some people who seem to
think that when they have paid Si cents
for a theater ticket they own the whole
building, and are privileged to do and
act as they see fit, regardless of the
comfort of others. They therefore wait
until a play has got well under way,
and just when all are intensely in
terested1 in the stage, march In with all
the nerve imaginable and attract the
attention oi every one until they are
fairly seated and their goods nnd chat
tels checked. Or perchance they may
have gotten tired of the conversation

conclusion they need a constitutional,

The Must l nklnlet Cut of All."
There a much in a name when it
comes to confusing that of The Dalles
and Heppuer just at the present time,
and, though we have forgiven the Teh-
gram seven times seventy times for its
seeming ignorance in regard to our city,
particularly when it so otten makes the
mistake' of confusing Dallas with The
Dalles, we consider now that we have
received the "most unklndeet cut'of all."
During Receiver Patterson's visit to
Portland Sunday, the reporter of that
paper evidently had a conversation with
him regarding the smallpox scare at
Heppner, and in his report of the same
in last night's Telegram lie says "the
recent smallpox icure at The Dalles lias
died out," and then goes on to describe
the situation at Heppner as if it were at
this city. In the heading, however, the
name Heppner is us-ed, which will prob
ably vaccinate the article sufficiently so
tlmt we will be saved the damaging
i Heels which would naturally follow
such n report.
Wo rea'.iz i that such a mistake might
easily be overlooked by a proof-reader,
as jut above it speks of Mr. Patterson
as being fiom Ti e Dalles; but he should
have been doubly careful in regard to
such an bi ticie, realizing how much it
means to a city to have such n iir.
pressiou given credence throughout the
surrounding country. Certainly tho
Telegram will come out at once and
correct Its grievous error.

In spite of the efforts of Portland and
its assistants throughout the state to de
prive Salem of the state fair, which for
thirty-nine years has been held at the
capital city, the state board of agricul
ture, now reducad to five members, is do
ing business at the old stand, nnd hav
ing paid ail the indebtedness, is now
starting in with renewed vigor to make
the fair of 1800 a howling success.
Many complaints have been raised
within the past few years us to its
management; but what have those who
raised these objections done toward as
sisting in making the meeting a success?
Seemingly forgetting that it is a state
fair, they have left the management and
everything connected with it entirely in
the hands of Marion county people (par
ticularly Salemites) and then, not even
taking tho pains to attend, they have
proceeded to listen to the report of a few
sore-heads, whom nothing would please,
and then ripped the affair, as the saying
is "up the back."
Portland and many onls-ideis claim
that were it to be held in Portland, a
great cbango would be noticed. Would
it? We doubt it. Removed from the
place where for neatly forty years it has
been sustained and from the fostering
care of those who have grown up to be
lieve it is their protege, we much fear it
would have been short-lived. Ferhaps
for a yeiir or two a renewed interest
would have been taken but it would
soon wane (like that taken in the
exposition) and it would have died a
natural death in four yeus instead cf
But it is to be held at the old ttand In
Sleiri, commencing on September 15th
and closing on thel'2J, and as Its pro
moters are making great efforts to make
this the year, when new vigor is put into
the meeting, every citizen of the state
should deem it a privilege ami duty to
assist them by sending in exhibits, in
troducing their best stcck, trying the
speed of their horses, and then enjoying
the fair by taking the family down and
attending. In short let us remember
that its a stale af-fair.

The Muinllpox at Ileppuer.
The Heppner Gazette says in part:
"Dr. Blalock arrived on Monday night's
train and early next morning went to
the homes of both the Driskell and
Smut families, making a careful ex
amination of the cases and pronouncing
them most emphatically smallpox, and
assures that verdict from any physician
who may be called. In an Intervitw
with tho CiHzette the doctor spoke very
complimentary of the town's prompt
action in the matter, assuring us that
in the early stages of the disease no con
tagion from the uflliction is liable. The
quarantine had been morn thun ample,
and advited the release of many quar
antined. About quarantining the to tt
he thought it most Inadvisable, as a
majority of the towns in the northwest
had cases of it and a thorough quaran
tine would take in the entire nortnwest.
The disease is being held in check by
ttie intelligent co-operation of the com
munities effected, and In these towns is
interfering in no way Willi business.
"The scare and general demoralization
of business in email towns like ours la
the remit of stnationul agitution. It
seems natural for most people to try to
go the other fellow 'one better," and
thus the sensation i xtends."
