Dally The heavy frost which covered the ground this morning reminded us that ibis is December and that Christmas is "mighty nigh." The first accident at the scene of oper ation oa the near portage road, on the Washington side, occurred last evening when a workman was killed by a blast. No particulars were obtained concern ing it, other than that the remains will be brought here for burial. The Bret rehearsal tor the Jubilee Carnival, which is to be given in the Vogton tbellth, took place last night at the hall, when bevy of young ladies weieon hand. It is expected that at least ninety ladies will take part, repre tenting the various business houses of the city in an attractive manner. According to reports the recent storms have dona considerable damage to prop erty on the rsortb beach, ine waves swept over the land for a considerable distance, and carried a few drift logs with them, A resident of Long Beach says that the fences around many of the cottages were carried away and houses on the lower ground suffered consider able damage. The tremendous rains of the past week Lava raited all the creeks in the county and what are usually babbling brooks are now raging torrents. We have not yet he.ird of any serious damage being done, hut fears were expressed yesterday that the Rock creek dam would go out. If this should prove to be the case, would seriously cripple both the Iman and Rock creek eaw mills, but we hope the fi'ars were unfounded. Skamania Pioneer. After two or tbreodays of almost sum mer temperature, there, being no freeze even at tiight, (now is falling today and it is hoped that it will get oil enough to prevent it from melting. This is necessary, in order that hauling ma chinery and supplies to the mines may be resumed. It will also add somewhat to the pleasure ot life here in town, where walking for pleasu-e has been abandoned for a week past. This is not intended as a surprising news item for local readers.

Fridav the first killing frost occurred The experience of last year, when our rose bushes were so badly damaged, should teach us a lesson this year. Blessed are they who scorn to borrow their neighbor's paper, savs an ex change, but come to the sanctum and layiug down the price of a year's sub scription on the desk, say: "Put me down on your list; I like your paper very mocb." Yes, verily, they are hap pier, their family is happier, and such as they are entitled to a front seat next to the band. When the news of Captain Waud's death reached here, his liltle daughter, Hazel, was viei'ing at Cook's L Hiding, down the river, and as soon ns possible word was sent to her and she returned home on the boat Saturday niht. Hiizel was a great favorite of the cap tain's ami the news of bis death was very hard for her to bear. Winter is somewhat backward this year, but it will get here just the same, as the few flakes of snow today remind us. Last year the Drat fall of snow, which was light, occurred on Nov. 10th. and on the 9,h the mountains were covered. During thela9tof December quite a little snow fell. On December 10th the Inland Flyer did not succeed in returning to the city, the river being blocked, and remaining so until the '221.

The young ladies who attended the Methodist cl urch last evening were es pecially f-vored in listening to a sermon by the pastor on the subject, "Our Honored Girls," for the speaker paid tribute tu them well worth hearing, congiatulating them on the fact that whereas but a few years ago mere were not a score of places in the business world opn to them, now there aro said to be 5000. He also spoke ol tne special giits which had been given to them and to what a great blessing they might be used.

For macy years the condition of the city cemetery has been disgrace to The miles, and frtrpiently the attention ofits residents has been called to that fact by the newspaper?, but nothing has been done toward improving it and Kill remains the same negu-uicu although situated in one oi ui be.utifnl sites which could bo While this can go on with out causing any particular disturbance, there is a matter which must be attend ed to at once, or we must find some other means of disposing of the city a dnad than burying them. The ground now inclosed is well oitfh filled with graves and right foon there will not be , paca left where a body can le la.d. VVl.ile there are a few lots, In mot cl them it li impossible to excavate on ac count of the rocky soil. The city must do something in regard to this matter, and that quickly. We understand two acres j lining the cemetery on the eouth can be purchased for $20 an acre. This Is very reasonable, and the city could make no better move than to buy this ground, extend the fence and thus give to those who are so unfortunate as not to be able to pay $25 for a lot or even $15 for a half lot, a respectable place in which to bury their dead. A large audience was present at the Congregational church last evening, prominent a.nong whom were the Elks, who, as a body, attend services once a year. Tho order was well represented, and listened intently as Rev. I. V. Poling spoke of "The mysteries which lie conrcaled in the shadow of Castle Garden," dealing In a large measure with the influences good and bad which reeult from the mliiratlon of foreigners to our shores. His ideas of the subject were good and clearly de fined. On? especially good point was that in which he suggested that.wheroas every foreigner who comes to our Bhores leentitledto vote whether he has re ceived the education compulsory In America or not, schools should be es tablished at every port where he could receive the necessary instructions in political economy, etc., and as a result vote understandingly. In closing be spoke of the benefit which America had received from each nationality, giving to her that which enables nil to proudly sing "My Country 'Tie of Thee," and at the close of the sermon the audience! sang it with a vim. The music of the evening was especially good. The two anthems by the choir, particularly the oncentitled "How Good is He the Giver" being txcell 'nt. The male quartet also gave two pleasing selections. Tucvlay Dull)'. It has been decided that the firet games of the inter-club contest will tsko place at A'tom on January 11th. Charles, the Infant sou of Mrs. Anna Johnson, who was reported danjirously ill yesterday, is said to be much better today. Wednesday evening is the date of the next rehearsal for the Jubilee Carnival. All who take part are requested to be at the opera house. The city marshal's report, as presented to the council last night, showed nine teen arrests during the month, and the .recorder reported $120.50 collected as flues, an unusually large amount.. The usual band concert will take place this evening at the club rooms, the business meetinii of the members inter fering in no way with the enjoyment of the music, having been called for 8 o'clock. The school term in District No. 44, near Wamic, which has been taught by Mies Rojinia Campbell, closed on Friday last, and that in District No, 41, near Mosier, taught by Miss Ruth Sturgisson November 29th. Everyone is beginning to hope that the old Indian's prophecy of an open winter will fall to make connection. What an outlook to be compelled to wadeabout through such a sea of mud during an entire winter, instead of glid ing over ice ami snow. The Business Men's Carnival to le given on Tuesday, Dec. 12th, promises to be a silccpfs in every particular. This entertainment as given in other cities has passed into history as one of the finest ever produced before an Amer ican audience. N. Whe.ildon, impersonating Father Time, called at this oflica this afternoon and reminded ns that we will soon have to write it "naughty-naught," by pre senting us two "up-to-date" calendars forl'.tOO; one with the compliments of the -Magdeburg Fire Insurance Company of Germany, and the other from ti e Fire Aesociation of Philadelphia. Wo are prone to imag'n that our frim.lt who are in any part cl Alaska have been In the ley grip of winter frozen stifT for months past, but such is nottha case; that Is not to the extent we imagine, for the Skagway Budget, which reached us today, says that on Nov. 24th at Bennett the thermometer stood at 33 above zero, an 1 at Dawson 10 above. The Dalies Commission Company's store changed hands today, Wm. Van Bibber having disposed of bis interest to Kimonson Bros. This has always been a popular place of business, and we wish for our new neighbors the good share of patronage they deserve. Wn are frequently ai-ked, "Has pas senger train No. 1 changed time?" Queer question, since she has been changing every day since we can re member. However, she is doing it of her own free will, no change being made by the company, and she is still due at 2;55. A private letter received from Dr. Belle Rinetiart tells of her pleasant trip East over the Canadian Pacific and of the arduous work which she is now do ing in the Polyclinic at New Yoik, every moment being occupied. She is taking a private course in surgery, for which she seems to be well adapted and in which she has always taken a deep in terest. Since publishing the article yesterday concerning the city cemetery we have been Informed that the ciiy really has no deed to the land now occupied, it having been used only by content of the owners. It might le well to look into the matter, and if f ucli is t.'ie cse, or the city is entitled to a deed, make ap plication for it and Ihui have tie matter definitely settled. A bright American girl is going to tell, in the Lsdies' Homo Journal, how she and a girl friend went to P..ris together, saw its sights, visited all ibices of in terest, lived theie and ha I "the time of our lives," os she explains the experi ence.

Of course, these experiences are intendel to serve as guide for girls going to the Paris Ex position in 1900. No one would imagine that a tramp dare present himself in any community, now that there is such a demand for laborers everywhere; but "Weary Wil lies" get here just as tired as ever, and every night it is said there are ganga hanging about the depot and passing the night nnder its roof. Close watch is kept and they are routed out as often as possihle, but it would require a special depot police to get ahead of them. Family It.unlon. A very pleasant family reunion was held at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. h. Richards at Fairfield near 8-Mile Thursday, when their children, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Sisson, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Mant., Mr. and Mis. R. E. Haworth, Mr. and Mrs. II. R. Richards and Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Haworth, met with them to partake of Thanksgiving dinner.
