larceny of a coat, vest, paii r.f pant and
some underclothes from John Dye at
tho Colnmbf.i Hotel Saturday 'night,
was brotwht t this city yesterday by
Deputy Sheriff Olinger, and niraigned In
Jiifl'icj Bayard's court this morning,
lie at once plead guilty, and was bound
over in the Mini of f.lUO. Bramau is a
young fe!!o just past 21 and from all
appearatues this must be his first
offense. John Fitzerald says he is a
pleasant prisoner to hnvo nnder his
charge and having a splendid voice,
livens up the jail with his music.

groat pleasme to the members of the

The Hook and Ladder Company cnt
quite a figure as tbey paraded down
Second street this afternoon witb their
new truck, as proud as small boy with
red-ton boots. In comparison witb the
dilapidated looking outfit they hare
heretofore drawn, it is bird, brightly
painted and thoroughly equipped.
Reaching the engine bouse, A. G. Long,
of whom it was purchased, made a test,
which was perfectly satisfactory. The
aerial ladder was hoisted forty feet in
the air aud Mr. Long ascended, after
which it was leaned against. the bell
tower and another long man J. A.
MacArthur mounted it. The entire
equipment was then explained to the
company, who are more than satisfied
witb everything in connection there
with. Thursday's Daily

The latest report says that two cases

The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Harri
man took place this afternoon from the
residence ot W. O. Johnson, interment
being made in Odd Fellows' cemetery.
Rev. U. F. Hawk conducted the services.
A fireman by the name of Geo. Albright
had his hands severely scalded early
this morning by escaping steam. The
water gauge on the engine broke and
Albright rushed in to try to fix it, when
the escaping steam burned both hands
badly. He at once came down to the
city and received medical attendance.
The man whose horses ran away this
morning and who was treated to a mud
bath, is no doubt wondering why so
many citizens go to the expense of travel
ing such a distance to take a mud bath,
when they can obtr-in any number at
home without money and without price,
But, like Naaman of old, they are look
ing for something greater than the
Jordan, or, inothir words, fail to ap
preciate the mud at home.
The very heart of the winter season,
and yet on their desk in the central
office of the Oregon Telephone Company
today the young ladies have a beautiful
pink rose which was plucked from the
garden at G. C. Blakeley's residence
this morning. It is perfect io form and
daintily tinted, the one thing lacking to
make it all that a rose should be, being
the odor, showing that Jack Frost must
have captured the perfume.
II. C. Owen, of Eugene, whose serious
illness was mentioned in yesterday's
Chronicle, died early Tuesday morning
at that place. He was a pioneer of 1844,
coming across the plains with the late
ex-Senator J. W. Neemlth. .His was an
eventful life until the year 1885, when
he settled quietly down in Eugene,
where be baa since lived.. Mrs. Wm.
Mansfield, his daughter, will be unable
to attend the funeral, being ill of nervous
proetration at her home in Nam pa City,
Idaho, where, in connection with Her
husband, formerly foreman of the Times
Mountaineer, she is enga'ged iu newt
From the very nature of things special
interest would be taken by everyone in
Chaplain Gilbert as a man; but aside
from that fact, few speakers have visited
our city who have so thoroughly inter
ested the people and also delighted them
as diil tie. For that reason we anticipate
that the Congregational church will be
filled Monday evening lv not only those
who failed to hear him on his recent
visit, hut very many wtio are anxious to
listen to him again.
Surprise parties are generally tho op
posite to what their name indicates;
but for a genuine surprise that given
Delwin Allaway by ten of his friends
last night was a decided success. The
occasion was his I Ot ti birthday, Imt
Delwin haliu thought of anything un
usual taking plr.ee until they walked in
upMi him. 'lhe boys and girU had a
splendid time Viith games and every,
thing that goes to mako a good, time,
Mrp. Allaway previon-ly 'arranging
therefor. In after years be may forget
many birthdays but not the l(!:h.
It would be a strange thing if with the
number of tramps and idle men which
infeHt our city at present, some depreda
tions were not committed, and it ibe
boovesour ritizms to be on the look
out to keep their doors and window?
welt locked nnd a revolver near by. The
first attempt at burglary (;f which we
have heard was made hi-1 niht, when
un entrance wag attempted into the res
ldeiict o( E. J. Collins, on Tenth etreet.
Mr. Collins distinctly heard the door
and n indows being tried, and j'lmping
out of bed he grabbed his revolver and
started to investigate. The mistake he
made, however, was In turning on the
light, which warned Die wonld-be rob
bers, who hastily made their exit.
Among Oregon's young women who
have gained a reputation for musical
ability is one whose snccess is very
gratifying to a leading musician of The
Dalles, Mrs. W. G. Woodwortb, the
young lady having been a pupil
of her's for two years and receiving
Instructions from her which laid the
foundation for a bril'iant career. We
refer to Miss Constance Mattingly, of
Portland, whose picture appeared in the
New Year's, number of the Oregonlan,
she having made herself prominent as
the composer of the Oregon march and
two-step, which was dedicated to tba
battleship Oregon, and first played by
Kinross' orchestra at the Hotel Portland,
and afterward on Oregon night at the
exposition. Many Otegonians now have
it in their homes in sheet music. -
After many'aDxious weeks of waiting,
few days since Mrs. Nellie Waud re
ceived a letter from Fred Caples,
consin of the late Capt. Waud, who was
with him at the time of his death, giv
ing particulars concerning the sad affair.
He said that while, the captain seemed
perfectly well np to 2 o'clock en the
afternoon of the 16th of November, at
that hour be was taken with a terrific
headache and extieme nausea, vomiting
terribly, and finally became unconscious,
dying at 4:45. At that time he was at
one of his claims near Dawson. The
writer said he had no idea that the
captain realized he was going to die, so
suddenly did the illness come upon him.
The remains were buried there tempor
arily, and as soon as it is deemed ad
visable and the weather moderates, the
body will be brought borne for burial.
A two-horee team running-away will
always canse a sensation, but four horses
make it doubly exciting, and so when
at the noon hour today a four-horse
team came bolting down Second street,
bringing the wagon behind them, every
body was excited for a time. It proved
to be Mr. Doyle's team, which, as he
was driving near Hansen & Tnomsen's
sawmill just as the 12 o'clock whistle
blew, became frightened and started on
a lively iiunt. Mr. Doyle was thrown
out of the wagon at the corner of Third
and Laugblin, and bad it not been for
the muddy condition of the street, no
doubt would bave been seriously in
jured. As it was be was badly stunned,
having struck his head and cut a slight
gash. He was thrown face downward
and the wonder is he was not suffocated
In mud, for he was sight to behold
when assisted to the sidewalk. The
horses turned onto Second and flew
down to the corner of Union, where they
slackened their speed and stopped in
front of the European house. One horse
was hurt slightly, having the bark taken
off his nose, but no further damage was

Kindergarten will reop?n on Monday

The o'.d Indian's prediction of an open
winter bids fair to be verified ; but it is
not such an nnusual occurrence In the
winter '95-'90, the lowest thermometer
was 17 above.
The meeting of the Students' Literary
Club, which was to have been held to
night, has been postponed for one week,
when the moot senate will convene. Two
weeks from tonight Dr. Geisendotffer
will give a lecture on "Bacteriology."
We 'not only have roses in bloom
throughout the city, but for some time
radishes and lettuce have been in the
market from Joe Stadleman's place be
low town. It is reported that on one
place on Mill Creek, peach trees are In
bloom. We hope such is not the case.
The largest amount ever collected in a
similar month in preceding years was

Sheriff Kelly, being collected by him
Juring the month of December, 1S99, the

It tiie f illowing dispatch from Astoria,
published in the Oregonian, Is a fact,
then are tho people of The Dalles wholly
in the dark concerning the matter:
"The Columbia River Canners' Associa
tion has determined to establish a can.
nery at The Dalles and compete wilh
the canneries now holding a monopoly
of the up-river fishing. It is said that
it has secured a site for the cannery and
will have the machinery ready to place
in the building as soon as it is com
pleted." In spite of the many counter attrac
tions which are at present going on in
our city, the attendance at the special
meetings which are now being held in
the Methodist church, has been very
good and much interest is taLen. A
great deal ot time is devoted to sieging,
which all seem to enjoy. The meetings
are not continued till a late hour so as
to weary the audience, hut clot at
reasonable time. Tonight' service will
be the last for this week, no meeting
being held on Saturday night. The
public generally is invited to attend.
The applicants for admission into the
blissful state of Matrimony bave no idea
of letting so small an obstacle as the
state of Oregon interfere with their
plans; but appeal to a h'gher court
Columbia itself. And so this morning
when Clerk Kelsay refused marriage
license to a couple from our sister state,
they at once invited Father Bronsgeest
to accompany them on a short trip
across the river, and as soon as the Ore
gon line was crossed, a Yakima county
license was produced and the ceremony
performed. The couple thus started ou
the journey of life by the water, route.
Among the visitors to Thk Chronicle
office last evening was A. B. Billings,
who was in the city from his home at
Mt. Hood transacting business. While
renewing his subscription to tbe Chron
icle he said that this had been an un
usual winter for Mt. Hood district, witb
little or no snow, and many days as
balmr as spring. When asked if the
fruit buds had reached a stage where a
heavy frost would injure them, he said
irom wnai lie nau learned they were
not so far advanced there as in this
vicinity, and he had not heard any one
express alarm as yet.
Saturday last the Sherman County
Bank made an assignment of all its
assets to L. Clark, one of its principal
creditors, to take effect as soon as Mr.
Clark qualifies. This was the best way
ot effecting a settlement of the bank's
affairs, as there were apparently Insur
mountable difficulties to be overcome in
getting a receiver appointed, without
going to the expense of taking the de
funct bank through the United States
district court at Portland. As the mat
ter now stands, Mr. Clark will wind up
the affairs of the institution under the
supervision of Judge Bradshaw or his
successor in office. Wasco News.
The matrimonial fever, which for a
time raged so furiously In Tbe Dalles,
is now affecting the country tributary
and has reached as far out as Crook
county, tbe county clerk being one of its
victims. The trouble is that County
Clerk Hodges must go to Marion county
to secure his license,' for on next Wed
nesday evening be will claim as his
bride Miss Stella Gesner, eldest daughter
of Hon. and Mrs. Alonzo Gesner. Warm
Springs also Is down on tbe list, and the
announcement Is uade that about the
first of February Samuel B. Davis,
superintendent of the Warm Springs
Agency, and Miss Florence Welle, a
teacher in the schools there, will be
united in marriage. Whether the cen
tury has changed or not, the new year
does not seem to have changed the style
regarding the matrimonial crazs.

It is seldom that so large a crowd as
sembles at any social function of a lodge
as that which met at the K. of P. hall

After a short session of the lodge,

COUNCIL STOOD PAT
Ob the Karaadlog Matter Thay Alao
LMecaol Ida Sewer Qaaatlon.
Contrary to expectations, the meeting
of the council last night was not "so
warm," although it was evident that of
necessity council is made up of many
men of many minds. However, upon
the question of refunding of bonds they
seemed to be unit. Mayor Kuck,
Councilmen Clough, Gunning, Johnson,
Shackelford, Kelly, Stephens and Wil
son were present, also a delegation from
the water commission, who requested
that tbe council pass an ordinance pro
viding for refunding $25,000 worth of
water bonds. The mayor stated that as
an ordinance had already been passed at
the last meeting providing for refunding
$20,000, it would be necessary to recon
sider that ordinance. The council did
not seem to be overly enthusiastic over
tbe matter, nor did they arise en masse
to moye that the question be recon
sluered. In fact each sat silent, and
nothing was left to be done but to let
the matter drops
lhe next order of business was to
make an estimate as to the cost of con
structlng the proposed sewer system
when it was determined that the ex
pense would be about $30,000 to com
plete the system below the bluff. On
tbe sewer question the council seems to
be divided, some for, others against its
construction. At the close of tbe meet
ing, however, the council was divided
into three committees, of three mem
bers each, who are to thoroughly can
vass tbe matter and determine what
property is to be benefited thereby and
equalize the assessment on the same.
A splendid suggestion was made by
Councilman Wilson to the effect that
after assessment had been equalized and
tbe amount of taxes on the vaiious
property determined, a statement of the
same be sent to each property owner
with a request that an opinion or vote
be given concerning the advisability of
constructing the same. In this manner
the council onld work to better ad
vantage, with a full understanding of the
wishes of the majority. It should be
added, however, that each citizen should
thoroughly understand the matter and
lock at the question nnselfishlv, voting
as seemeth best for the welfare of tbe
city. If this can be done, then the plan
is a good one.
LIBRARY IN GOOD CONDITION.
Pvrtlatent Work of the Few Made Laat
Year a Successful One.
In spite of the slight interest displayed
by tbe majority of its members in the
management of the public library, it
has just passed a very successful year
and is in good condition, thanks to a fow
who have borne tho burden aud heat of
the day. Through the extreme kind
ness of Messrs. Blakeley & Houghton
the association was afforded space in
their drugstore in which to keep their
books and transact business until more
convenient quarters could be found ; but
their inability to furnish larger quarters
for the books ordered from the receipts
of a special edition of the Times
Mountaineer, made a move necessary at
the beginning of 1899, As if it had
been arranged especially for that pur
pose the room now occupied on Wash
ington Etreet presented itself, and being
centrally located and suitable has
proven just the place necessary.
With no funds on hand the expense
of fitting up the room, furnishing lights,
fuel, librarian and additional books
from time to time was no easy task ; but
by ceaseless work and energy on the
pirt of a few, this was accomplished
without constant appeals to the public,
and during the year 110 persons have
had the benefit of the library, which
has been open to the public three even
ings end one afternoon duiiog every
week, furnishing not only to them, but
to any w ho desiie to j 'in, the benefit
detived from ail tbe latest anil best
In such an entcrpiiso nil the better
class of people in the community shon'd
be concerned, and vet thero is a woeful
lack of interest displayed. Were the
lihiary to b: closed, however, and the
reading public deprived of this privi
lege, its loss would bo keenly felt and a
coot i'.mal complaint arise.
Fortunately the receipts fur the year,
not including the money taken in at the
lady minstrels nor in gifts, litre ni oe
than paid the running expenses, the
yearly necipU being $2o; 28. Tho (lis
hursemeiits uni'Hinted to $222 55, leaving
a balance now on band of JI0.7.', not!
including $2J held in trust. The amount
paid oiit for new books during the year
was $10.51 ; and an insurance of $500 was
placed in tbe library..
(iifts to tho library were a follows:
Wood, sufficient for last winter's use,
given by Titos. Jo'ms; u ta n, tr.ble
and chairs, amounting in value to $9.25,
were also donated, and the catalogues
presented by Otis Patterson amounted
to$:l5. These, with 1.20 held in trut
for certain purposes, amount to $C1.25.
Books to the number of twelve have also
been presented. '
At present the library contains 700
books, and Its doors are open on Mon
day, Wednesday end Friday evenings
from 7 till 0 o'clock, and on Saturday
afternoons from 2 till 5. The books are
free to all w ho pay the 25 rent dues
each month, no subscription feo being
We trust that greater Interest in the
affairs of the library will be taken by its
members this year.
Darkneaa Covered the City.
A largo number of Dalles people m'ght
have justly been numbered lest night
with the foolish virgins, who had no oil
in their lamps, and consequently found
themselves iu tbe dark when the light
failed. The trouble arose from the fact
that one boiler had to be used and enough
power could not be generated to supply
tbe entire city. Many haye made the
complaint that the company should have
informed the people that such would bo
the case. While we bave not been able,
to learn the particulars front the
managers of the company, as they are so
occupied la making preparations for to
night, we feel sure bad they known that
such an emergency would bave arisen
they would have informed the people
through the papers.
As it was, many plans for the (Toning
were overthrown, stores were c'oa.'d
early that what power could be generated
might be used in lighting the resideccee,,
and many sat in darkness or went back
to the old tallow candle and lamp. Such
occurrences only prove to us what an ad
vantage electricity is in that line and
how lost we would he without electric
We are informed that the lights will
be turned on tonight ; that is unless some
unforseen complication arises.
Should Be Made An Kiampla Of.
Tuesday it looked somewhat as if the
government did not intend to entirely
ignore the law concerning the sale of
liquor to Indians ; but that one man at
least would be brought to justice. How
ever, so far, it bas turned out rather un
favorable for the justice side, as the
culprit succeeded in escaping before the
officers got their tins on him.
It seems that on the 20th of laat
month a stage driver by the name of
Mclnerny, who drives between The
Dalles and Wapinitia had for passengers
an Indian man and squaw. Having on
bis person a good supply of fire water he
proceeded to get them both drunk, suc
ceeding, however, only iu the case of
the man, as the woman refused to drink.
More serious charges were also preferred
against him of criminal assault open
the woman, but sufficent evidence could
not be secured to warrant his arrest on
A complaint was sent to officers here,
who in turn informed the U. S. officers,
and Tuesday evening Deputy TJ. S.
Marshal Al Roberts arrived in tbe city
to arrest him. Atty. Mays was also
here regarding the case. But when the
marshal started out to secure his man
yesterday morning, the bird had flown,
although it is said he was here the
What efforts re being made to secure
him we have not learned, but it is to be
hoped he w ill not be allowed to escape,
altogether; but that an example will be
made in his case, particularly so when
other charges of a more serious nature
could not be proven sufficient to convict.
