About twenty young people spent last
evening with Miss Grace Downie at the

music, refreshments and everything that
goes to make up an evening of pleasure

visit here.
A Haystack correspondent to a Prine
ville paper says a teamster was twenty'

In the runaway Thursday afternoon,
when J. C. Egbert's team came rushing
down Second street at the East Ecd, his
son, Curtis, was thrown out at Farley's
harness shop and his right shoulder
was dislocated. He was carried into
Brooks' store. ' This is unfortunate as

and the accident wiil no doubt prevent
his resuming nis studies for a short time

Thia morning C. F. Stephens received
a letter from J. M. Filloon, whose dome
is now in the unfortunate town of Moro,
in which he says : ' "This town is almost
isolated from the outside world on ac
count of this 'Moro itch.' It doesn't
amount to much; only a little Incon
venience. We haven't contracted it yet ;
but it is scattered all over the town.
It's not smallpox. I think it's a disease
brought from the Philippine islands.
There have been no deaths so far."
As proof of the fact that the Central
Navigation and Construction Company
means business, we learn from head
quarters that J. S. Cochran, who has
charge of that department of the work,
has closed a contract fur machinery for
two upper Columbia and Snake river
boats, and has likewise purchased in
Chicago one hnndred thirty-ton cars,
two passenger coaches, two cabooses,
our engines and a number of flat cars.
Thia surely has no ear marks of a fake.
Yesterday being the silver wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Bunn,
a few of their friends gave them a
genuine surprise last evening by calling
at their home near the garrison, bring
ing with them several useful presents
and a lot of good things to eat. The
evening was passed very pleasantly by
the following friends: Mr. and Mrs.
Geo. Krauss, Mr. and Mrs. L. Hoenng,
Mr. and Mrs. J. Stadelman, Mr. and
Mrs. Weigel, Sr., D. Lemison, Miss F.
There are at least a few generous
hearted people who realize just what
a newspaper does for a community and
appreciate its efforts, and one of that
number is C. L. Phillips who always re
members the girls in the oflics. This
morning ho walked in, carrying a large
box of splendid eating apples, and
the force have since been feasting there
on. But that was not all, and if it
were not that Mrs. Phillips reads the
Ciihokici. we would add that he also
filled them out with a supply of "Sweet
heart" chewing grim, of two-Hp flavor.
Mr. Phillips Is all right, so the composi
tors ray, and so say we all of us, while
we wish him a happy New Year.

A number of our business houses have
very sensibly decided to close at 0 o'clock

will close at the same hour, although

Tbe Methodist church was crowded
Sunday evening when the choir, assist
ed by Mrs. Jayne and Miss M. Michel),
Messrs. Jayne, Davenport and Smith
and Miss French, with Miss Ruch and
Mrs. Collins as accompanists, gave a
splendid sacred concert. All who at
tended seemed more than pleased, par
ticularly with the bass solo given by
C. M. Smith, whose voice is truly won
derful. Recently a very neat and creditable
piece of work in the shape of a catalogue
of the books in our public library, was
gotten out in the Heppner Gazette office
and presented by Otis Patterson to the
library. It would open the eyes of some
of those "crack" city job offices to see
the taste displayed in its get up. Be
sides containing a complete list of the
books of the library it also has a copy of
the by-laws and constitution governing
the organization.
Superintendent C. L. Gilbert returned
home from Salem Saturday evening and
Profs. Landers and Neff Sunday, having
been in attendance at thn state teachers'
association there. They are enthusias
tic over the meeting and especially the
treatment accorded the visitors. From
the reports glvm In the Statesman and
other papers, Wasco county was well
represented by these leading tducators
of Eastern Oregon, who neverare allowed
to take a back seat, though, modesty
might prompt such a course.
Sunday officers found a 17-year-old
young fellow, who belongs to a respect
able family In The Dalles, in a badly in
toxicated condition, wandering about
w ith his hat and coat off. He was ar
rested and taken before Recorder Gates,
who after exacting a promise of better
behavior and turning over a new leaf
this year, was discharged later. A
workman from the Washington side of
the river forgot too keep the twear he
sworo the night previous and was cele-
brating when he ran across tbe marshal,
who pot a stop to his hilarities by put
ting him to sawing wood.
Mr. A. S. Shrum, of Cherry Creek, is
Jn town and reports the mining excite
ment running high in that section. He
says that be has traced an immense
copper deposite from Cherry creek to
Pine creek, a distance of thirty miles;
that in places it shows fine' specimens
ol peacock copper ore; that the only
assay made so far gives $7.20 in copper
to the ton : that on his land near Cherry
creek the ledge is intersected by a con
tinuation of the Oregon King ledge.
For a fact, these statements indicate
that Crook and Wasco counties may yet
prove to be something more than "cow
counties." Crook County Journal.
Iu the haste and impromptu manner
in which the question of New Year's
receiving was agitated Saturday the
names of a large number of ladies,
who would gladly have received, were"
omitted, causing some to be somewhat
chagrined and to feel that the Ciihomclk
was unwise in giving a list at all.
Newspapers bave troubles of their own
and are compelled to heed the scriptur
al teaching by bearing the burdens of
othars to a certain extent; but in this
instance we certainly feel that in justice
to ourselves it Is no more than right
that we be exonerated from blame.
The list of names was handed in with
tbe Idea of awakening an interest in the
matter, with tbe understanding that
others, whose names were not included,
would also receive.- The Chronicle-
had nothing to say in tbe matter,
simply acceding to tbe request of the
promoters of the idea. We therefore
plead not guilty.
From the increased number of letters
addressed to Santa Claus received at the
dead letter office this year it is evident
that the popular illusion ot childhood
has as strong a bold as ever, or that the
youngsters are becoming accustomed to
the letter writing. Since" December 1st
more than 1000 of these letters have
reached the office, coming from every
state in the union and containing re'
quests for almost everything imaginable.
Two articles, however, dolls and candy,
seem to be in greater demand than anv
others, the little boys usually naming
the Bweets, together with something
el so in connection with the sports. The
patron saint is addressed in various
ways, the destination of some of the
letters being ludicrous. Some are with
out stamps, some with 2-cent stamp,
while not a few this year bore 5-cent
stamps, the senders evidently laboring
under the impression that the supposed
dispenser of toys resided in some foreign
country which was a member of the in
ternational postal union. Where tbe
address of the sender is given the letters
are returned, otherwise they "are de
stroyed. The Qregonian again comes out with
a splendid annual edition, and if our
state is not well advertised it is not the
fault of ttat most aggressive of all Ore
gonians. Wasco county, with the other
counties, comes in for a good share of
prominence, and The Dalles, of course,
is justly heard from. There is one kick,
however, that we feel is justifiable, and
that is regarding the cut of the city con
tained in the pictoral supplement.
Surely the view must have been taken
from the most unsatisfactory point pos
sible, for it gives a very poor idea of the
beauty of our city and gives the im
pression that this is a little 2x4 town,
with a few scattering houses here and
there. The fact is the burned district is
in the foreground and it doesn't even do
justice to that part of tbe city. There
are, however, several other first-class
views taken by our leading artist, who
is hard to beat. We notice several of Mr.
Gilford's famous Columbia river views.
Our postmaster, Riddell, and sheriff,
Kelly, appear to good advantage, the
latter being, especially natural. Tbe
supplement, taken as a whole, is ex
cellent and gives a splendid idea of the
scenery and Industries of our great Ore
gon and portions of our sister state.
A Lara K amber of Gaests Entertained
at the Umatilla Hones Last Might.
Saturday's Pally.
In years gone by the Umatilla Honse
has been the scene of many happy social
occasions and many residents can look
back on evening after evening spent
joyously within its walls. It remained
however, for the closing week of the
year 1899 to witness the most brilliant
of all social functions within its history,
when at the invitation of Mrs. J. S. Fish
and Mrs. R. B. Sinnott, about 130 of
their friends enjoyed their hospitality In
the happiest manner last night.
A more Ideal arrangement of tbe
rooms could not be Imagined. The
dining room had been transformed into
a beautiful garden, in one corner of
which sat the orchestra on a platform
surrounded by evergreen trees, from the
tops of which seemed to float tho sweet
est of music. From the center pillars
and about the walls evergreens were
festooned, and, as if to serve as a fatten
ing, were large bow-knots of red ribbon.
An immense bunch of mistletoe hung
from the ceiling at the center of the
room and large palms were in evidence.
In passing from the dancing hall into
the refreshment room was a veritable
grotto, surrounded by evergreen trees.
Here lemonade was served from a
large bowl of natural ice. A garden

walk of rustic beauty led into the re
freshment room, which was also deco
rated in evergreen and red bunting, and
while the guests regaled themselves
music was constantly enjoyed, being

AddiDg much to the artistic surround
ings was the beauty of the ladies, who
were clad in handsome gowns made es
pecially for the occasion, and of unusual
taste. Nor would we forget tho gentle
men, who with scarcely an exception,
made so striking an appearance in full
diess suits.'
Dainty programs had been provided
and as most of the guests had well filled
lists, dancing was kept up continually
by the majority of the participants in
the festivities. '
And thus the event which had so
long been looked forward to, surpassed
the expectations of those who were af

How 1000 waa Greeted Culling Revived
in The Dalles.
Dalles people were not overly enthu
siastic about welcoming in tho new year,
although 1900 was greeted with the toot
ing of a few whistles, the explosion of a
bomb or two and the ringing of two
church belle. Time was when every
bell in town was rnng, and tbe old rang
out and the new la with a vengeance;
but now we seem to have little liking in
speeding the old and welcoming the
new. A watch night service was held
at the Methodist church and a midnight
mass at the Catholic, while a large
number cf individuals formed them
selves into parties and watched the old
out and the new in.
Old Sol gave the new year the "glad
hand" yesterday, shining out resplend
ently and setting an example which
caused a large number to imitate his
example and make the oust of the day
by revising tbe almost discarded, but
pleasant, practice of New Year's calling
The idea was not agitated until Satur
day, and all were surprised at the num
ber who responded, while about twenty'
five homes were thrown open to receive
tbem. A much larger number would
bave been prepared had the ladies been
aware that such was the intention.
From 3 until 7 o'clock were the hours
set apart and pleasantly passed in ex
changing greetings and partaking of the
dainties prepared.
Contrary to the usual custom, no
special entertainment had been pre
pared, and the evening passed quietly,
save to the members of the dancing
club, who enjoyed perhaps tte most
pleasant of the season's club parties.
The hall had been prettily decorated in
bunting, and evergreen trees surrounded
the orchestra platform and must have
added an enthusiasm, for never did
music sound more sweet. An unmual
crowd was in attendance, who teemed
to greatly enjoy the dancing.

The law passed at the last session cf
the legislature, providing for the regis
tration of voters, went into effect yester
day. The Chronicle office has just got
ten out a pamphlet containing the com
plete registration law which will be sent
to each precinct. More definite infor
mation will be given through the col
umns of this paper at various times
latef. The essential provision, however,
is as follows :
"It shall be the duty of every elector
in the state of Oregon, between the first
Monday in January, 1900, and 5 o'clock
p. m. of the 15th day ot May, 1900, and
between the same dates and hours bien
nially thereafter, to regieter with tome
notary public or justice of the peace or
with the county cierk of the county in
which the elector resides, in accordance
with this act..
"Every elector may be registered by
personally appearing at the clerk's office,
but if any elector is qnable for any rea
son to conveniently register as aforesaid,
he may register, without charge, before
a notary public, or a justice of the peace
iu the county in which he resides by
using a specially prepared blank and
filling out the blank in mi eh a way as to
afford ail the information which he
ought otherwise give to the clerk, and
in addition thereto eigning tbe same
three times in the presence of two wit
nesses, freeholders of the county, who
shall sign their names upon the same
blank, and by the electors and witnesses
making oath thereto, which shall be
forwith filed by the notary or justice of
the peace with the county clerk of the
county in which the elector resides.
The county clerk shall supply such reg
istration officers, upen request, with a
sufficient number of said blanks."
The notaries or justices of the peace
must keep the names of electors regis
tered by tbem alphabetically, and shall
not charge the elector anything. These
officers are entitled to a fee of 10 cents
from the county for each elector regis
tered by them.
Cloning of Hawthorn District School.
Miss Hattie Stirnweis closed a very
successful term of school In the Haw
thorne district, Friday, Deo. 29th. Tbe
closing exercises were very well ren
dered, and the teacher and pupils joined
in making it an occasion to he long re
membered by every oue present and the
manner in which each pupil performed
their parts showed that their teacher
had taken a great deal of care in the
training of the pupils, and the spirit of
good will that showed lorth in each
pupil's face, was an expression of appre
ciation for the efforts put forth in their
The program was very appropriate for
the occasion, and also reminded one of
the fact that Christmas, with its many
good things, was still fresh in the minds
of the people, and that New Year was
not very far away.
At the conclusion of the program
candv, nuts, popcorn and apples were
brought into tbe schoolroom aud all
joined in a merry time, visitors and
pupils all thanking Miss Stirnweis for
the efforts she had put forth for the ad
vancement of the pupils.
And thus came to a close one of the
most successful terms of school ever
taught in Hawthorne district, and all
left the schoolroom wishing eajh other
a Happy New Year., Pat.
