A very large crowd attended service
last eight at tho Methodist church, and
listened attentively to a sermon by Rev
Frank Spanlding. Mr. E. J. Collins has
charge of the music, assisted by a chorus

There was no failure in the crop of

fined $2 for drunkenness, which he

From the number of drifnken men
S3en on our streets for the past few days,
one would imagine the entire city was
"spiritually" inclined. These, however,
are not citizens but "gentlemen of
leisure," who are "enjoying" our hospl
tallty and teem to be royally treated.
A meeting of the taxpayers of this
school district is called for Saturdiyat
2 p. m. at the brick school bouse on
Court street. The object of this meeting
is for the purpose of levying a tax to run
the schools for the coming year. Every
taxpayer should be present.
Surely Dailea people will be glad to
learn that there is a wooleu mill propo
sition in the air, which bids fair to be a
substantial one this time and amouut to

parties will soon visit the city wiln a

will be given in tomorrow's issue.
When the repoit was circulated that
smallpox had broken out near Tygh,
Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Driver bad no idea
that they had any particular interest id
the report ; bnt a letter received laBt
night informed them that their daughter,
Mamie, who is now Mrs. Jus. Kennedy
and lives near Wamic, is the nnfortu
nate victim, having taken ill a week
ago. The case, however, is not a serious
one, she being confined to her bed only
a portion of the time. The disease is
supposed to have been brought from
Sherman county by Frank Watkins,
who having been afflicted with it, came
over to Wamic. Still anotner case is
that of a young man by the name of
Miller. The school at Wamic has been
closed, the teacher coming in from there
yesterday and leaving this morning for
the valley.
Businees still booms at police head
quarters, Nigbtwatchman Phirtnan hav
ing harvested a crop of drunks last
night. Joe Sterling, who was not as
sterling in charactei as name, was fined
$2 this morning for vagrancy, and sent
tojtil. G.F.Snyder, for drunkenness,
was compelled to pay a $2 fine; Geo.
Powers' spree cost him $5 in fines,
which he is paying by shoveling mud ;
while Sam Severeon, who was discharged
yesterday, liked the place and came
staggering back last night to work out
his $5 today. Last, and least, Marshal
Hughes nabled a little fellow this noon
who, though small in stature, was large
enough and drunk enough to break
pane of glass in Waggenraan's shoe shop.
Two of the fellows arrested by Phirman
attempted a hold-up at Skibbe's bar
last uight. One of the workmen from
the portage road was treating and die
playing his wealth, when the two
drunken fellows got hold of him, one
holding him np, while the 'other
started to go through his prcltotB. Phir
man was near by and stopped their little
scheme by arresting them.
A telephone message from Antelope
late last night conveyed the startling
news to Wm. Gi'more, of Grand Dalles,
that bis daughter, Maggie, had been
seriously burned and was .very ill in
consequence. Mise Gil more, who is a
young lady of about 17 years, has bien
stopping with her aunt, Mrs. Wilbur
Bolton, and attending school. Last
night while seated at the table, by some
means the lamp was turned over into
her lap and exploded, catching her
clothing and causing ber to be burned
from the waist to the ankles. No par'
liculars as to tho manner in which tl.e
flames were extinguished was given, but
the phyeician in conversing with Simeon
Bolton over the 'phone said that the
hands and ankles were very badly
burned; the extent of ber injuries, how
ever, cannot be determined as yet. Mrs.
Bolton is absent in Portland, but the
unfortunate girl will have the best of
care, a trained nurse having been sent
for, who will arrive here tonight and
leavo for Antelope in the morning. Her
father, W. D. Gilmore, left the city at
noon to watch at her bedside.
Mrs. II. L. Kuck was at home yester
day afternoon to fifty of her lady friends
whom she invited to meet her aunt,
Mrs. W. W. Teirce, of Polo, 111 , and
who snent the hours in a very happy
manner. No prettier decoration can bt
found than that which includes an
abundance of smllax, and from the cor
ners of the parlors to the center chande
liers were teatoons of that graceful vine,
while pUnts were placid in every avail
able space throughout the rooms and in
the hall evergreens predominated. Each
lady wore a boutonniere which was fur
nished her by the hostess as she entered.
The greater part of the afternoon was
spent at a guessing game, which tested
the knowleJge of the guests concerning
the great men of the United States.
Mrs. J. B. Condon was fortunate In
guessing the largest number and captur
ing the first prizs, while Mrs. Marden
took the second. The refreshments,
Served in a manner calculated to make
them more tempting, were very elabo
rate and thoroughly enjoyed. It was a
great pleasure to the ladies to meet so
charming a lady aa Mrs. Peirce proved
herself to be, and all were grateful to
Mrs. Kuck for the opportunity afforded
and also for the pleasant afternoon.
One of the happiest families in The
Dalles today is that of Mr. and Mrs. I).
J. Cooper, who for the first time in their
history meet today in a reunion, fourteen
of the fifteen children which have been
born to Mr. and Mrs. Cooper during the
forty years of married life being present ;
Lynn, who would have been 12 years old
at this time, having been accidentally
killed In '03. Although not being the
anniversary of any particular ever.t, it
seemed to be the most propitious time
for a reunion, when all could meet to
gether. Few families are found of so
large a number as this, and having suf
fered the lost of but one of the fold.
Another great satisfaction to the parents
is that it cannot be said that among the
many offspring with which they have
been blessed one is found who might be
termed a prodigal child, nor on whom
tbey cannot look with a degree cf pride,
Mr. and Mrs. Cooper are a young looking
couple to have about tbem such a family,
and many a woman of younger years
might envy the mother her happy con
tented appearance as she discharges the
duties enjoined upon her. At the table
this afternoon in thei.- home on Tenth
street were seated beside the parents,
the following children : Dr. Belle (wife of
Dr. Rinehart deceased;, Charles, Mary
(Mrs. James Thompson), Nathaniel,
Nan, Pruder.ce (Mrs. Fred Bsvley),Cyrue,
Ruth, Daniel, Virginia, John, Jatue,
Kenneth and Mildred. B-side these
were nine grandchildren and Mrs. Chas.
Cooper and Fred Baylc-y.

The tax levy for 1900, as determined
by the county court is as follows: For
state, 6 3 mills; school, 5 mills; G. A. R ,
1 10; county, 1135; state bounty, l

estimated, that a levy of 11.35 will raise
8uflierit funds for the running expenses
of the county, which are $30,000 a year.
John Myers, who died in Portland
Wednesday, was a brother of Clay
Myers, of this city. As his illness was
of short duration, his brother knew
nothing of it until he received a tele
gram announcing his death. Mr. Myers
was a pioneer of I860, and a man highly
respected in the community where he
Wm. McCorklo, of Tygh Valley, who
is a staunch friend of Ths Chronicle,
hastens to inform us by letter that we
are mistaken regarding the case of
smallpox at Tygh. He says there is not
a case of sickness of any kind in Tygh,
No doubt the two cases at Wamic are
responsible for the error, the names of
the places being confused.
In spite of the beautiful weather which
Dalles people are enjoying today, tho

A very large crowd attended the club
dance last night at the Baldwin, and the
presence of many visitors', including the
Salem bowling team, added much to the

were enthusiastic over tho music and
highly pleased with the party. No nicer
dancing parties are given in any city of
its size, than those which Dalles society
people are enjoying this winter.

Would you breathe the air of Arkansas

folks who live there among and sympa
thize with the afflictions that fall on the
home of Tom Logan, an honest but much
wronged blacksmith. If so, attend the
performance of "Human Heaits" at the
Vogt opera house Jan. 22. Not alone
sorrows mark the play, there are tears
in plenty, but also a generous supply of
incidents which provoke hearty, health
ful laughter. All who have seen the
play will welcome its coming and all
who have heard of it for its several
successful seasons have made it a popu
lar favorite will await with eagerness
the performance of next Monday night.
'Human llearts."
That great and beautiful drama, "Hu
man Hearts" will be presented at the
Vogt Monday evening, Jan. 2lst.
"Human Hearts," the companion
play to, but entirely different from
"Shore Acres," is regarded as one of the
best American stage productions of the
past ten years. When any play by a
comparatively unknown author, first
merits attention enough to secure an
opening and then goes on to the stage of
the Fifth Avenue Theater, New York,
nd conliues one whole season without
cessation, it is a guarantee of its quali
fied power and its real merit as well, as
me rum Avenue I neater clientele id
one that will not tolerate even a toler
able good one for long. But let it be in
moral clean, in its scenes and situations
not ever drawn, aud its character paint
ing and dialogue tiue to nature in the
absolute, then let it be enacted by only
the masters of the dramatic art, and all
New York will forsake the bouse where
"chaff" and comedv, ayo even the
ighter charming opera aud modern
English burlesque hold sway, to pay
tribute to the weight of any brainy
author, who, through the medium of
the Btage holds up to them a true picture
of American life. Such was the ex
perience of "Human Hearts," arid now
in its third season with almost the iden
tical cm that presented it for a year in
New York, it comes to The Dalles.
It should, and undoubtedly will meet
with the geuerous welcome that has
ever been accorded it bv the American
people throughout the land.
Rev. Jua. Da Forrest's Suceea.
The Denver "Eye" has the following
article concerning the success of Rev.
De Forrest in his new field of labor:
"The new rector cf St. Peter's church
on Second avenue Is doing a splendid
work. He Is fast removing the obstacles
which have in the past stood in the way
of the growth of the church and brought
tho society into a cheerful present with
a prospect for a rnoro hopeful future.

his church work by his wil, who has
for years sang in her husband's church,
and Miss Adele, a talented soprano,
formerly a student of tho celebrated
George Sweet of New York, and later of
Fisher Powers, of Denver.

among the members and friends of the

charming family may remain long
among them and continue their ood
Maw School Term.
Classes will be organized in the first
primary grade at the Court Street and
Academy Park schools at the opening of
the new term, Monday, Jan. 22. It is
desired that, as far as possible, all be
ginners enter at that time and start
with the new classes, as no other classes
for pupils first entering school will be
organized this year,
Owing to the crowded condition ot the
rooms there will be no new class started
in the East Hill Primary school this
term. It will be better for first primary
pupils in tho eastern division of the
district to wait until next September to
enter. Or if parents deem it best they
may come down to the Court street
school or Academy Park school.

Drunken Brutta Should Be Dealt With
More Severely.
On the editorial page today we pub
lish an artie'e regarding the ever-preeent
beast known as the drunken husband
and father, which juet hits the nail on
the head, as the Telegram always does.
Not alone in Portland, but iu The
Dalles and every ot'.ier community is
the contemptible creature found, who
having taken upon himself tho vows of
a husband and in after years becomes
tha father of at least a dozen offspring,
stands t the liar and squanders away
his last cent and returns hoine(?)to
bjat or slash them with a kuifo, and
fien turns them out upon tho county
for industrious citizens, who have done
their duty by their own families, to
As the Telegram says, the law dees
not seem to touch the cases of such con
temptible curs. What care they if they
are placed in the county jail for a few
months to sober up, while tho county
supports their families, and lawyers are
doing all in their power to obtain a
hnbeai corpui or some other means to
lighten their punishment, when the law
should be making a "corpus" of the
prisoner himself? In nine out of ten
cases they are turned loose in the end at
any rate. Instead of being placed in
jail to Idle away the time before their
trial takes place, some means should be
devised by which they should be at once
put at hard work and compelled to sup
port their families. Bnt in place of that,
the public not only supports the family,
but bears the expense of long continued
trials in the endeavor to obtain justice.
But, although the poor wife suffers
greatly at the hands cf these brutes, it
must be said that in most cases she
proves that it would have been better
for coining generations had she never
been born, or having come into the
world that she had never been respon
Bible for the being of those whom she
lias caused to lead a miserable existence.
For Instead of assisting in the deserved
punishment when the case comes up,
there isn't "a woman in it," as she re
fuses to appear, while the husband goes
scott free, and in a few weeks repays
her with another beating, which she de
serves. The Telegram is right, the legislature
should take the matter in hand and
mete out justice.
ftlnaucee of the Congregational Church
In a Satisfactory Condition.
Thursday's Daily.
The members of the Congregational
church and also of the congregation en
joyed one of the most pleasant gather
ings in the history of the church last
evening, due in a great measure to the
feeling of good will and fellowship w hich
prevailed, enhanced by the satisfaction
which arose when the treasurer, B. S.
Huntington, read his yearly report
which assumed them that the finances of
thechnrch never were in belter condi
tion, holding the banner among all the
Congregational churches on the coast la
this regard. A' church society which
owes not a dollar is an unusual one la
ibis age, but ancb is the recorj ot the
church in The Dalles, as announced last
iiight. Moderator S. L. Brooks presided
at the business meeting, aud with the as
sistance of Clerk A. R. Thompson, soon
disposed cf all the questions which
came up for consideration. Among;
other things B. A. Gifford was etee'ed a
trustee; B. S. Huntington re-elected
treasurer, A. R. Thompson re elected
clerk, and Mrs. E. M. Wilton again
chosen a deaconess.
At the close of the business session a
pleasing music program as rendered.
Mrs. E. O. McCoy gave a pretty solo,
entitled "Always;" W. E. Siraonton,
accompanied by Miss Schmidt at the
organ, then rendered a cornet solo, "I
Cannot Tell," which was heartily en
cored; Mrs. G. T. Parr sang "Dream
ing," which was especially suited to her
voice and well rendered. The male
quartet composed of Messrs. Lundell,
Simonton, Poling and Landers, were so
well appreciated In their selection and
its reudition that the audience ould
not be satisfied until they again ap
peared and rendered "Bumble Beo"
quartet. The selection from the "Hay
makers" given by the church choir,
was beautiful and also loudly encored.
The folding dcors leading into the
lecture room were then opened and re-
vealed tables set in the moet tasty man
ner and the room was also prettily dec
orated. Soon the members and their
friends were seated and enjoying the re
freshments served by the ladies, during
which time happy convereation and
good cheer prevailed, making the entire
evening a most pleasant occasion.
Serious Cases ot Illness Reported Froaa,
the I ia ol Impure Making rowder.
The poisoning of the Thomas family,
of Thomas' Mill, Somerset Co., four
memlors of which were reported to have
b-eu made dangerously ill by impure
baking powder used in mixing tuck
wheat cakes, has been further investi
The original can w ith the remainder
of the baking powder left over after
mixing tho cakes was secured by Dr.
Critchfleld. The powder had been
bought at a neighboring country store,
and was one of the low priced brands.
Dr. Critchfleld said that the patients
had the symptoms of alum poisoning.
As the same kind of baking powder is
sold in many city groceries, es well as
country stores, Dr. Critchfleld thought
it important that a chemical examina
tion should be made te determine its in
gredients. He therefore transferred the
package of powder to Dr. Schill, of this
city, for analysis. Dr. Schill's report Is
as follows:
"I certify that I have examined chem
ically the sample of baking powder
forwarded to me by Dr. Critchfleld.
The specimen contained alum.

Alum is used in the manufacture of
the lower priced baking powders. It ia
a mineral poison, and for this reason

Tho Howling Contest.
"Turn about is fair play," so evident
ly thought our bowlers when they beat
their Illibec guests three straight games
last nijbt. It did not, however, look
encouraging for a chango in luck when
the visiting team came out so far ahead
in the first game, nor anything to brag
of in the second ; but the two last told
the tale, and showed that Dalles bowlers
had not lost all of their cunning.
D'Arcy, of Salem, was high man and
did "handsomely ;" Kurtz high for the
home team.
The audience was not so large nor
quite so enthusiastic as that which
witnessed the games last year, and yet
there was a good attendance and interest
n bowling was somewhat renewed.
Somehow the Salem and Dalles bowl
ers affiliate remarkably well, and a
lasting friendship has sprung up be
tween the two teams which will be
carried into every day life and prove
most pleasant for all concerned. Beside
this, Dalles people have a very kindly
