sary to remind the Dalh's people that
horsemen greatly prefer the climate oi
this section to that of almost any owir
place in the state, and that a track here
means the almost constant presence oi
a large number of men and animals, for
whose keeping every dollar ezpecded is

palace every night in the week. Through
the agency of this delicate and compre
hensive Invention of that great wizard
of the age, Thos. Edison, beautiful
scenes from nature are shown upon a
vast white curtain, Just as the eye
photographs them. The range of sub'
lects is innumerable and includes
pictures of action and verve. - Every
scene is a triumph of beauty, art and
attractiveness. A long list of splendid
subjects will be exhibited."
A case of particular interest to mining
men was commenced in the Portland
courts yesterday morning in the suit of
W. C. Kellman against C. M. Cart-
wright, to recover $35,000, said to be tbe
value of a high interest in mining prop
erty in Crook county, Oregon. Accord
ing to the complaint, Kellman, who is
a mining engineer, entered into an
agreement with Cartwright, bv the
terms of which Kellman was to furnish
his experience and Cartwright the
money, and if any mines were discov
ered each was to have a half interest
Kellman claims to have been instru
mental in securing the Silver King and
other mines, which he estimates are
worth $75,000, and he claims that Cart
wright if fuses to give him his rightful
share. Mr. Cartwright denies all of
the allegations in the complaint.

A fruit tree propagator has at last pro
duced a seedless apple, and the fruits

apples are superior In flavor to the or

being paid for the trees, which fo some
timo yet will be bought up by rich ama

Geologists assert that the island upon
which Galveston is located s slowly
sinking and that in a few hundred years
it will be entirely submerged beneath
the waters of the gulf. The recent fear
ful catastrophe which nearly destroyed
the city is likely to be enough in Itself
to lower the value of insular and coast
real estate in that part of the South, but
when the assurance of coming perma
nent submersion is added, a prosperous
future for Galveston eeems impossible.
Hon. George J. Barrett, representative-elect

not Craig attempted a similar assault a
few days ago on a younger sister whom
he met in the sand drift south of the
mission gardens. The little one was on
horsebak and so broke away from him.
Craig pleaded guilty, but tried to excuse
himself on the ground of drunkenness.
The justice reprimanded the prisoner
severely, and said his only regrst was
that he could not send him to the enl-
tentiary for ten years. The small fine

C. C. McGowan, the canneryman,
takes a hopeful view of the prospects
for salmon fishing on the Columbia
l iver, says the Astoria Budget. He does
not fear extinction of the Chinook sal
mon, but feels confident that the rivers
may be stocked through the agencies of
hatcheries. "Last year was the only
one in which any great number of young
fish were turned loose," be said, "and
it is too soon to judge the results. In
1899 there were 21,000,000;fry let loose
in the Columbia and Willamette rivers
by the fish hatcheries operating in Ore
gon and Washington. Previous to last
year there were never more than 2,000,
000 to 6,000,000. and yet we have ample
evidence of the good work done by
hatcheries. If only one-tenth of these
fry return, it would give us a pack of
400.000 cases. I am very much in favor
of establishing more hatcheries, as there
appears to be plenty of money on hand
to be used for that purpose. Oregon
has made a good appropriation, and tho
fund derived from fishermen's licenses
is quite a good one. I look for better
packs from now on, year after year."

The Dalles is to bold a harvest fair
and carnival. This much is certain.
The committee, appointed Monday night
to confer with the citizens and come to
a final dtcision, met in the council
chambers last night and reported favor
ably. R. B. Slnnott took the chair and an
nounced that sufficient funds had been
pledged, together with what might be
reasonably expected from parties who
had not yet been asked to subscribe, to
make it certain that sufficient money
could be raised to insure the success of
the undertaking. He believed the fair
would prove one of the most profitable
ventures The Dalles has ever under
taken. It would attract thousands of
people from the surrounding country
who have not been able to take in the
Portland carnival and who will not at
tend the fair at Pendleton. It would ba
worth to the business men of The D.vlles
many times its coBt. This was the pre
vailing sentiment of the meeting.
The committee were in favor of having
as many free entertainments as their
means would afford, and it was de
termined to avoid Ihe objections raised
by many against the management of
the Portland fair for allowing charges to
be collected however small each might
be at almost every turn. If we treat
our visitors generously we will Insure
their friendship and appreciation, and
even if it cost a little more at the time
The Dalles will be the gainer in the
On motion the chair appointed the
following gentlemen to act with himself
as an executive committee, with full
power to do all that may be deemed
necessary to promote the success of the
undertaking: E. C. Pease, C. L. Phil
lips, Ben Wilson, Chas. Stephens.
The committee met again this morn
ing and appointed a sub-committee of
three to go down to Portland and see
what can be done along the line of pro
curing entertainment and other attrac
tions. CASTOR I A
