Sometime since the Lutheran church

Wm. Brenner, of Oregon City, who Las
- been filling the pulpit here at intervals
for several months. The call has now
been accepted and two weeks from to

pastor. Mr. Brenner is a young man,

his work successful.
Nigbtwatchman Phirmfn is a good

If the lessons taught last night by
Dr. Geo. Hall in his lecture at the
Baldwin were heeded and put into
practice in every day life by those who
listened to hiiu, there would be a trans
formation in many homes of our city.
The doctor Is a speaker who bears evi
dence of learning and at the same time
is of that type of lecturers who believe
in choosing subjects of interest to his
listeners which please and not puzzle.
His delivery is-excellent and his 1m-personationsflrst-class,
perhaps the most
pleasing feature of bis address being the
impersonation of the mother's lullaby,
which was beautiful, being enhanced by
the sweetness of bis voice. If Is ideas of
what constitutes a happy home were

il. J. Anderson, the village black
smith and Populist statesman of Dufnr,
think he can see as far into a Repub
lican millstone as the man who picks it.
While in town today he strongly de
nounced the present smallpox scare as a
deep-laid scheme of Mark Hanna and
the McKinley administration. "It is
notorious," said Mr. Anderson, "that
only Populist preciucta have got this
Filipino itch, as they call it over in
Sherman county. Moro, a Populist
stronghold in Sberntan county, has got
it bad. So has Wamic in this county,
wbicb is almost solidly Populist. Tygh
is badly threatened, and Tygh is
Bryaneque to the core. Antelope and
Hood River, two Republican strong
holds, have not a siugle case. Neither
is there a case in lue miles, mis
shows beyond controversy that Mark
Hanna is at the bottom of the whole
business. The affected districts have all
been quarsntined, and thus prevented
from registering so that they may not
be able to vote at the next election."
It's a cold day when Anderson gets left,
however. In the absence of a doctor,
and without a proper instrument to
scarify the flesh, Anderson has inocu
lated every Populist in Lnlur, using a
carry comb to start the blood and in

A disease more terrible than smallpox
has made its appearance in Pendleton,
two cases of diphtheria being reported
there. The strictest of measures are

Not content with the never-ending

have made their readers so weary of,
one paper comes out with the following
conundrum, with which all can puzzle
their brains until something equally as

As nsual' a small number of voters
were present at the ichool meeting Satur

they were called together that of levy

running expenses of our school was,
however, dispatched promptly, and a7,'9

While a suggestion or two was made re

For - several years Raymond, the
young ion of Rev. and Mrs. U. F. Hawk,
has been an invalid, being confined to
the bed a great portion ot the time with
hip joint disease. Upon a consultation
ol physicians Friday of last week it was
decided that an operation would be
necessary, and it was thought best to
take bin) to the hospital. According
ly Mrs. Hawk left with him on the boat
this morning for Portland, where be will
be placed in St. Vincent's hospital and
operated on soon.
C. F. Baker, he of unsavory fame in
other days, is again in trouble. This
time be is wanted in Umatilla county
on a charge of forgery. After searching
for him in the vicinity of Sampler,
where he was purported to be, he was
finally discovered in Thi Dalle-, and
arrested by Deputy Sheriff Sexton Satur
day night. Deputy J. A. Blakeley from
Umatilla arrived yesterday and secured
his prisouer. Baker's parents live bere,

people bow any son could bo so profligate
as to disgrace such a father and mother,
People through oat Eastern Oregon
will be quite generally interested in the
news which has been sent out from
Portland to the effect that Paul Mohr's

the portage road at The Dalles, has
purchased in the east three sets of ma
chinery for stern wbee! steamers and
the construction of the steamers will be
commenced soon. . Louis Faquet, ol

A very tormenting habit of some of
our young boys is that of throwing at
Chinamen as they pass, attending to
their own business, and not in any wiee
interfering with the little hoodlums. No
more energetic race can be found than
these Chinamen aud so long as we admit
them to our shores, the law should pro
tect them. Everybody knows Dick,
who is an inoffensive young Chinaman
and not ono who would merit such
treatment as he daily receives, when a
(gang of little toughs stand on the corner
and pelt him with mud as he passes
carrying bundles of clothes. It is use
less for him to attempt to defend him
self for the foolish parents of these same
disreputable boys would see that the'r
"darlings" were not ur.justly dealt with
by a measly Chinaman. Juat the same,
if tbey are not capable of bringing up
their children the law should assist
them in the person of the marshal.

Standard Oil Company's works, below

Word reached here this morning that
the body of a woman and a babe bad
been found in a spring six miles this
side of Condon three days ago. A tele
phone message trom Arlington this
afternoon developed no facts other than
that It was supposed to be a case of
the experience of Winuin Thorn, of
Latham. These men may be the angels
they have tried to impersonate, and no
matter how the court mav deal with
'them, conclusive evidence has been ob
tained that some railroad men may be
the perpetrators of dastardly crimes, as
well as other people; but when a girl

Our old friend the Chinook is a blow-
hard, and gave ns such a breeze last
night about 11 o'clock that many were
corgratulating themselves that at that
rate our etreets would be dried up. But
Jupiter Pluvious disputed his sway and
reigned supreme, making the streets, if
anything, worse this morning; Con
tentment is said to be the road to happi
ness, and tbe best way for Dalles people
to do is to travel that highway, leaving
the mud beneath them.
J. H. Baker, father of C. F. Baker,
who was arrested here Sunday night by
the sheriff of Umatilla county, as the
man who was wanted there for forgery,
informed us that it was a case of mis
taken idenlitly that the man wanted
was C. E. Baker, and his son returned
yesterday afternoon. Baker tallied ex
actly with the description sent to the
sheriff here, and his past record caused
the mistake, if mistake it was. Mr.
Baker says the man upoc whom the
check was passed exonerated his son.
About a week ago, Mr. C. M. Smith,
who so delighted Dalles people with his
wonderful bass voice upon different
occasions, left the city for San Francisco,
and in a letter to a friend informs him
that he has decided to locate there, and
has already accepted a position in one of
the largest churches. While we are
more than sorry to part with such a
musician, at the same time we realize
a place the size of The Dalles cannot
afford the opportunity such a voice
merits. In Colorado he was known as
"the little man with tbe big bass voice,"
and he was well named, for none would
believe a person of so small stature
could possess such a phenomenal voice.
His friends here wish him all manner of
success in his new home.
As usual in The Dalles, the greater
portion of the first act of last night's
play w us completely spoiled by the con
tinued arrival of the audience. It gen
erally takes a little time to become ac
customed to the voices and the surround
ings, but last night those who were there
at a reasonable time were exasperated
beyond measure as they endeavored
to catch but a few scattered words of the
conversations which generally form the
nucleus of the play. Now that the
stores close at an early hour, there is
little excuse for tardiness in arriving at
entertainments However, many may
have been uncertain as to the hour when
the curtain would rise. In the future Tiik
Ciiiiomci.e will endeavor to publish the
hour when the play commences, and It
is to be hoped our people will soon be
gin to consult the pleasure nf others as
well as themselves, and be more prompt.

has started on tho trail that may almost
any time lead her into the vicious hands

While it is' the general opinion of
Dalles people that we cannot well escape
the smallpox, which is now prevalent
throughout the neighboring towns and
along the line of the ' railroad, at the
same time very little precaution seems
to be taken. So far as we cau learn few
have resorted to vaccinntion, and if a
case should develop in the citv tomor
row, no place would be in readiness to
receive them. A room should be fitted
up in the pest house, so that any
stranger coming into the city and taking
ill of the disease, could be cared for.
While we do not advocate the idea of
"ehaking hands with the devil before
meeting him," yet it does seem as if The
Dalles should use a little judgment in
the matter and be prepared for its in
roads. The fact that the disease is, in
most cases, of a light nature, should not
make us leas precautious, for a case in
Spokne which was contracted from one
of the lightest cases, has proven to be of
tbe most malignant type.

Miller at Wamic are of a light nature

dreadful disease in Grass Valley, our
citizens are taking every precaution to
prevent its spread. The public school

are being vaccinated and disinfecting

the aid of a strict quarantine the epi
demic will not only be confined to one
house, but entirely wiped out."
