The fire last night demonstrated one
fact which is greatly in favor of our
poplar trees, upon which such a war has
been waged of recent years. Had it not
been for the row of poplar trees on the
west side of the Cosmopolitan, tl at

to the flames, or at least have made the
fifht much more difficult. In several
instances in The Dalles have we known
their presence to be a safeguard. Their
height makes them the superior of any
other tree in that regard.

near the Don Juan and nearby is the
Baozette owned by Dave Choate, and
which was recently bonded and option
taken up at $30,1)00. The famous Bo

On the 1st of April, they commenced

gold to a nugget which is worth $9(5.
Mr. Joles left his brother, George, in

section are all taken up and bid fair to

It would seem that the whole town
was interested in the Hallelujih wed
ding, which took place SalurJay(1night
at the Baldwin opera house, which was
crowded and many were compelled to

bad ever seen a wedding conducted In
like manner. After the usual street par
ade, the army marched to the opera
bouse which had been very nicely dec
orated, particularly the stage, over
which hung a red, white and blue bell,
and on each side the doves of peace
flew, carrying messages of good will.
The army was seated on tho platform
and in the center were the bride and
groom, Miss Cora Johnson and Frank
Potts. If any expected to see the bride
unduly "togged" in wedding garments
they were disappointed, for she appeared
tastily dressed in the regulation Salva
tion garb. The early part of the ser
vice consisted in singing, praying and
several married soldiers told of their
expeiience in the matrimonial war, all
urging upon their hearers the necessity
of becoming converted in order to exper
ience a happy married life. Although
the usual hilarity of the armv was a part
of the other service, the marriage cere
mony, performed by Brigadier Marshall,
was quiet and accompanied by a solem
nity becoming such occasions. The rit
ualistic service, while partaking of the
nature of other marriage ceremonies in
some respects, embodied much of the
religious principles of the army and ex
acted promises to sustain tbe same.
The contracting pitrties were guarded by
the Stars and Stripes and the army flag.
At tbe close, the happy couple made
short speeches signifying their intention
regarding iuture service In tbe army.

occurring on Sunday in '59. As the Sun

Gillie, who was arrested at Wamic and

description tallying with the fellow who
has been wanted in Hillsboro since '97,
they telegraphed to the officers here to
go to Wamic and arrest him. Although
he protested his innccence, there seemed
to be no doubt as to his identity. Ar
riving at Portland, the mistake was
discovered and he returned last night.

In spite of Tiis Ciibonklc'i asser
tion that there was nj danger of fire
starting in tbe laundry, and the astur
ance Mr. Mac.VUister felt against a
conflagration of that sort, the laundry
today is a mass of mint, and the only
wonder i that the old Cosmopolitan

At 0:30 Saturday night the bell gave
w arning and one bad but to look iu that
direction to see br the smoke about
w here the Cre was. The first alarm was
giveu by the Chlnameu opposite, and it
was but a short time unlit the fire de
partment was on band. It was as stub
born a Cro to manage as one could im
agine, although the ab-enreo! the usual
Dalles wind was greatly in the firemen's
favor. Having slatted upstairs In the
east building there was the greatest con
cern for fear tho Cosmopolitan would
catch. Theu the laundry comprises
three buildings and there was a con
stant fight to keep it from epreadirg on
the west side and destroying the 1. P,
& A. N. office. Another difficulty was
tlie fact that the main building stood
about twelve feet from the ground, and
the upstairs was partitioned into mini I
rooms, making it doubly hard to man
age on the east side. But never was
better work done by the tire department
and the fire was confined to the laundry
alone, tlie building on the west sido
being less damaged than the other two.
There were six streams of water play
ing, five from the city water works, with
a pressure cf 100 pounds, beside the
railroad company's hose, which had a
good pressure.
Much fear was expressed by lookers
on, that some accident would happen to
the firemen, so dangerous did it appear;
but though they fought desperately and
took (treat chances, no accidents occurred.
Different opinions are expressed re
garding the origin of the firo. While
some declare it started in the northeast
corner upstairs, and was the work of un
incendiary; others are of the opinion
that it originated the same place as it
did Wednesday evening, at the flue.
There are circumstances which would
warrant either opinion, but nothing
certain can be determined.
The destruction of the laundry is not
only a great loss to Mr. MacAlli?ter, who
has spent a large run of money in fit
ting up and making the plant complete,
(for it was in good shape) but to the
city at large. Employment was given
to fifteen persons, and as tlie patronage
increased the force would have bten
enlarged. A telephone message from
Mr. MacAliister, who Is in Portland,
says, however, that he will continue the
business, and that he has made arrange
ments to send the laundry to Portland,
until he can again get started in busi
ness. Ho will arrive home this after
noon. There was little loss in the machinery
and the clothes being mostly ready for
delivery were nearly all saved, although
somo of them were soiled. They will be
delivered as soon as poss'ble.
Thk Chronicle reporter is of the
opinion, from a conversation with Mr.
MacAliister recently, that the business
was insured, although those who should
know think not. The books and valua
able papers were all saved. The train
building is tbe property of Mrs. T.
Baldwin, and was not insured. The
other two belong to the Savage estate
and we understand carried no insurance.
The D. P. & A. N. office was slightly
damaged by water and by furniture be
ing removed. There was no loss to
papers nor books, however, and an in
surance was carried on fixtures.
another location be secured on the bluff.
At any rate tbe laundry has com to
stay in spite of fire. This we are pleased,
to state, for such Institutions are just
what we need. As business increased1.,
new hand were constantly being em
ployed and by fall it was estimated that
twenty-five employes would be at work.
We trust that it will soon be launched
in earnest again, and will rn-eive the
patronage required to iuk it tucccea

but to give those who are doing their ut

credit due them. There I a c instant

bers, lend assistance. There is one way.
however, in which appreciation may be
substantially shown, and that is by ap
plying the needed faciiitits for fighting
the flames.
When we take Into consideration that
the majority of the members of tbe vol
unteer tire department of this city con
sists of young men who have little or
n ithing at stake, and on every occasion,
undergo the possibility of ruining a
good suit of clothes, hich so frequently
occurs, and even risking their lives in
the act of saving the property of others,
who often eeein unconcerned, it would
seem that the community should supply
the department w ith such weapons as
are needed to battle against that worst
of all elements, fire.
The necessity of a well-equipped hoolc
and ladder truck was again demonstrat
ed at the fire last night, and it would
be a matter of much significance and
worthy of the property owners to see
that a suitable outfit be procured.

Flninci Cannot Destroy.
Having been telephoned to regarding
the burning of the laundry, Mr. MacAl
iister returned home Saturday evening
to find the work of months swept away
by the flames and his laundry, which he
had made complete, in ruins.
Iu conversation with him this morn
ing, be expressed a firm conviction that
tbe fiVe was the work of an incendiary.
He says a chimney doesn't burn out
twice in a week. Besides, the fire started
several feet from the flue. When Mr.
Smiley left in the evening everything
was cool and in good shape. Tbe door
leading upstairs, where the fire started
was always kept locked, but when Mr.
Horn reached there as soon at he saw
tbe fire, in endeavoring to break open
the door, he found it unlocked.
As the machines were damaged tut
slightly, Mr. MacAliister says bis loss
will be about (500. As to insurance, be
inform us that it ran out on the I'tb,
and be had gins to Portland to inspect
some new machinery and get it in place
before insuring. So that t.e is left with
no insurance.
This morning they have straightened
out the west room as best they conld
and are looking over the laundry which
was damaged and soiled by being carried
out. Business will go on in spite cf the
ruins and this nxraing a lot of clothe
were sent to Portland and other will be
sent this after. icon.
While Mr. MacAliister I determined
not to be outdone, and will toon fit up a
building, he ha not decided a yet just
where It will be. It la potsib'o tbat the

The surveyors have just returned from
Cross Hollows having laid out the site of
the new town. Unlike the general
mushroom town, which springs into
existence helped by a boom, Cross Hol
lows is to be established on a solid basis.
Moore Bros., bankets, who have fur
dialed the townsite, are prepaiel to
back the undertaking with hard cash.
A bank, warehouse, hotel, general Btorsy
with tbe terminal buildings cf the Co
lumbia Southern Railway will form tbe
iipcleus of what is bound to be a thriv
ing western city, and the key to a vast
region hitherto handicapped by a long
haul to a railroad point. It Is not our
intention to enlarge on the advantsgea
of Cross Hollows as a distributing point;
its situation will speak for itself, and tbe
numbers of inquiries made since the
undertaking has been set on foot, goes
to show that Cross Hollows, in a few
short years, will take its place f-s one of
the leading towns in Eastern Oregon.
What It Means.
Few people realize what the develop
ment of a good mine means to the
surrounding country, especially the de
velopment of a (1,000,000 mine, such aa
tho Silver King on Trout Creek. It
means substantial additions to the tax
roll, additional employment for hundreds
of men, increased demand for all agri
cultural products, lumber, timber, etc.
The Silver King Is in an agricultural
section and every farm will be increased
in value. It is in a large mineral belt
and other mines will be opened there.
This is not all. Crook county is rirh in
