THE DALLES WEEKLY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 13. 1S99
A few prices from our Silk and Dress Goods
Department by way of introduction to our sale that
commenced Monday morning, Dec. 11th:
This is the one sale of the year when cost price
and original selling figures are entirely eliminated from
our vocabulary; they do not affect us "in the least. Now
is the time, aud it must be done quickly, too, when we
clean up all fall and winter goods at almost any price.
Some Startling Discoveries
Have beeu made by the head of the house. Dormant stocks have
been funud here and there in odd lines, in such quantities hp to make the
ordinary merchant stagger. But we've cal!td a halt now. We're going to
have a reckoning. All profits are declared off till these several lines are dis
posed of; there'll be no let-up and this will be the greatest m-mey-savins
sale inaugurated in the history of The Dalles.

Everyone who it to take part in the

Is the last evening of rehearaa'. And all

Speaking of our beautifully paved
trieig reminds us that there is more
than one way of killing a cat; and It is
an advantage to that duiuestic animal
that it has nine lives; particularly so
hen the elements combine against
them, as was proven-yesterday, and
they.narrowly escape a catastrophe such
one specimen of the feline tribe en
countered on Court street nenr First.

"'Klit, no boat or other means of transit
visible, so she determined to watch her j
chance and take It afoot. But the un
fortunate creature had not calculated on
the bottomless conditions of Dalles
streets at present, and gaining the mid
dle of the road found herself trying to
swim, with just the tops of her ears see
ing daylight. She floundered hopeless
ly, when a Chinaman near by, who was
"doing nothing but sawing wood," took
the cue and also his life in his hands and
went to the poor thing's rescue. She
was a miserable looking specimen as he
lifted ber out by the nape of the neck,
one mass of mud ; but has determined
to foisake the Populists and keep out of
the middle of the road. .
Enjoying the beautiful sunshine to
day no one could imagine we had such
a miserable rainy Sunday. From Satur
day, night until early this morning there
was .05 of rain fall.
We learn that an Indian on the Warm
Spring reservation, caught and killed a
large grey wolf last week. This is the
first one of the kind beard of in this
country for years. It is said it measured
6 ft. 2 in. from tip to tip. Dispatch.
School closed in District No. 58, near
English's place, last Friday. The high
class work of the teacher, Miss Cheadle,
who is recently from the valley, has won
for her great appreciation and commen
dation from the patrons of the district.
In the East they are discussing the
question, "Why men do not go to
church." Out here in the West we have
no occasion for such a contention. The
men do go to church, most of them
Salem Statesman. If most of them at
tend church, the men of Oregon must
be decidedly in the minority.
About seventy-five young ladies will
take part in the business men's carnival
tomorrow night at the Vogt. Their cos
tumes will be worth seeing, some of
them being very pretty, while others
are equally unique. The program will
be furnished by the characters repre
sented, and some of them are decidedly
novel. The admission will be 25 cents.
It is antboritively stated that Jack

Mrs. Edith Wetherred, who has spent
the past two weeks in Eastern Oregon
institutlrg cabins of Native Daughters,
will arrive in The Dalles tomorrow
morning and remain over until Wednes
day with friends. She is desirous cf
meeting all native daughters In The

she will talk the matter over. Mrs.
Wetherred Is a very entertaining lady
and it will be a pleasure to meet her

the work and The Dalles should not fail
to do her duty in the matter and enjiy
the pleasure and benefit derived there
by. The long talked of railway to run frcm
The Dalles to and through the Deschutes
river territory has been resurrected and
is again up for consideration. That is
what should be done and there is a
certainty that such an enterprise would
be faithful in dividends. Such a route
would tap one of the richest sections of
the state and afford a ready means for
the shipment of live stock, agricultural
and mine products to the market. The
sparsely settled country would quickly
fill up with desirable emigrants and it
would not be long ere the interior would
move in the front ranks of progress.
Mr. John O. Thomas, special agent of
the Royal and Queen insurance com
panies, was in the city yesterday and
appointed Arthur Seufert local agent of
these companies for The Dalles.
Harvey Kollzuian, who was arrested
last Friday at Greshaw, charged with
forgery, was arraigned in Justice Bay
ard's court this afternoon, Judge G.
Hayes, of Oregon City, appearing lor
the defendant. At the time of going to
press the result could not be obtained.
The Oreginian announced yesterday
that another train would be put cn by
theO. R. & N. between Portland and
Huntington. So far as we can learn no
word lias been received iu The Dalles
concerning the move, and it is not be
lieved the new train will be put on for
some time yet.
Thursday and Friday evenings, the
14th and 15th are the dates for the
Lutheran fair. The musical programs are
under the supervision of Prof. Birgfeld
and the very best talent in our city has
been engaged. Yon will find also that
the ladies have on sale all sorts of useful
and fancy articles, as well as pastry.
Further notice next week.
Last Friday at Hood River C. E.
James got into an altercation with a
man by the name of D-rkin, beating
him up pretty badly. He was tried for
assault and battery and committed to
the county Jiil for twenty-five days by
Justice Prather. Deputy Sheriff Oiing
er arrived last night with the prisoner,
who is now behind the bars.
Commenting on the bravery of Deputy
Sheriff Howell in capturing the two
desperadoes Sunday, the Telegram aptly
says: "The two highwayman that four
Portland detectives failed to capture,
when the miscreants were corraled in a
room, were captured on a toad in an
open country, without help, by one
Waeco county deputy sheiiff named
Howell. It Is improbable that Wico
county would entertain a proposition to
trade off Mr. Howell for a j )b lot of de
tectives." The militia boys have made a splendid
move iu putting into the armory a good
gymnasium. Wtiile not elaborate, it Is
sufficiently equipped to aff.rd the mem
bers necessary exercise and a great deal
of pleasure', and the boys thoroughly
enjoy it. At headquarters they have
also arranged to have on hand good
reading matter, in the shape of the late
magazines, and thus a splendid place is
furnished where they can spend the
time profitably. Last night after drill
a lively smoker took place and every
body was initiated, the initiation con
sisting principally of the blanket degree.
The boys, however, came down in good
trim to enj y the refreshments which
had been foraged.
The telegraph companies are announc
ing that they are prepared to receive
meseages for transmission to Dawson,
Skagway and other points in Northwest
Territories and Alaska. The announce'
maut concludes as follows: "Messages
are accepted with the understanding
that they will be transmitted by tele
graph to Seattle, Wash., Vancouver, B.
C, or Victoria, B. C, forwarded by first
steamers to Skagway, and thence trans
mitted over government telegraph lines
to destination. The steamer service be
ing irregular and slow, messages are sub
ject to delay."
Detective Joseph Day arrived on last
night's train from Portland to identify
Wilson acd Blown who were captured
Sunday and proved to be the same men
wanted In Portland. The result of his
conference with the officers here con
cerning the disposition to be made of the
prisoners has not been determined ; but
although it may not be according to
"Hoyle" or Blackstone, or whoever he
may be, we would suggest that Wasco
comity be "unselfish" in the matter and
l.'t Multnomah have their men, and then
we'll be out only the horses instead of a
large sum in prosecuting them.
Passengers on the O. R. & N. train
Friday tell of an incident that occurred
near Arlington which not only caused
deep sympathy for the parties con
cerned, but taught all a lesson in regard
to carelessness concerning money carried
while traveling. An old,, white-haired
man, who was on bis way from Okla
homa to some town in Washington, with
his family, had been rather free in
changing money and in no way reserved
about the amount he carried. Placing
a roll of bills amounting to $700 in the
bosom of his shirt, he Ml asleep and
awoke to find his bills minus. The con
ductor was at once informed and a
eearch instituted ; but it was finally de
cided that a man who had gotten off at
a small station a few miles back had
managed to capture t! e bills, and the
poor man was left with but 10 cents,
and a large family depending on him
for sustenance duiing the trip. It would
seem that the beet way to do in travel
ing is to "believe everyoue guilty until
they prove themselves innccant."
Mrs. Edith Wetherred arrived In the
city ibis morniug from trip through
Eastern Oregon. She is a woman of re
turn kable energy and ability and has
had great su eefs in instituting cabins
of Native Daughters in the various towns
she has visited. Although she has made
great effort to awaken an interest in
The Dalles, It seems to be the general
opinion that there is already toj many
orders to admit of good wotk being
done by adding another. There is
another reason why we believe our
women fail to co-operate in the work,
and that is theie art few who have
leisure time, being an unusually busy ag- j
pregation of housewives and working
girls whose time Is entirely taken up.
We hope, however, that at some future
time, after the holidays are over, pre
liaps, and the extra efforts in church
financi'ii work have somewhat subsided,
the ladies will feel that they can co
operate ir. instituting a cabin here, for
I ho organization of Nalivo Daughters
should receive the support of everyone
of Oregon's fair daughters.

Married fit Uuilrty.
On Thursday, Dec. 7, 1899, at 5 o'clock,
Mr. John Davidson and Mies Iva Leabo
were united in marriage at the home of
the bride's parents at Endersby, Rev.
Smith of Dufur M. E. church officiating.
The bride was attired In a most be
coming dress of light blue henrietta and
white satin, aud wore white chrysanthe
mums. About forty guests were present,
mostly relatives of the bride and groom.
After the impressive ceremony the
newly married couple received the con
gratulations of those present.
The dining room was next sought,
where a bountiful supper was served.
The remainder of the evening was
spent in social conversation, and all left
feeling that it had been the most en
joyable event for many days.
Should Not It Driven.
Editor Chronicle :
Noting with satisfaction that your
paper has always spoken fearlessly in
the interest of the dumb animils and
agitated the question of a humane
society, I would call your attention and
that of the citizens of The Dalles at
large to a horse which is daily driven in
an express wagon about our streets.
The poor thing is as thin as an animal
could possibly be, and looks as if it were
about to drop at every step it takes.
With many others I believe the owner
should be compelled to cease driving it,
and if the cap fits any of our expressmen
let him put it on.
We will discontinue giving tickets for
amount of t:oods purchased, te!eemable
in hand painted china, after Dec. -0,
1899. This china will niaki very de
sirable Christinas presents an 1 you
should avail yuursi If of this opportunity
togetsomeof it free. Alio we would
suggest to thosd who now have some of
it and want to complete their set, that
the time is limited so do not put it olT.
We will ktep the chine on hand after
abovo date until all tickets ate redeemed.
