The whalo that recently washed ashore
on tbe Oregon beach, about midway be
tween the Seaside and Gri ues hotels,
though still on exhibition, is no longer
tbe attraction that it was several days
ago, says the Telegram. It is now be
ginning to make its presence felt, and
beach residents and visitors find it more
pleasant to view the remains of the mon- -
ster at long distance than at close range.
The whale is beginning to resent famil
iarity. , The animal is about 25 feet in
length and from 4 to ix: feet thick. It
is what is known as the black whale,
and seldom attains much greater size
than the one washed aBbure.
Some time ago Rev. Charles M. Shel
don, famous the world over as the
author of "In His Steps," published a
Topeka paper for one week by special
arrangement with its owners, on a plan
entirely his own. The policy was defined
as orfhodox Christianity liberally ap
plied. Now comes a new man, said to
be backed by a large Portland concern,
and he has announced the paper for to
morrow. The new publication is to be
devoted to the best interests of the
people of Wasco county, treating its
subjects in a purely social and esthetic
sense. "The Wool City Special," as he
has christened it, is advertised for to
morrow and, as the editor states, he will
rely entirely on the voluntary support
of tbe people, believing a sufficient per
centage of the population here are not
only ready to receive such an enterprise
but that they will be quick to perceive
the benefits of its suggestions.

The Pendleton East Oregonian says
quite a number of young men from Pen

With its distinct air of originality,
magnificent scenic environments and
presented by a good company, the "King
of the Opium King" will undoubtedly
meet with the same phenomenal success
at the Vogt opera house on Wednesday
night next that attends its presentation
in other cities. The play, based as it is
on the real Chinatown of the country,
and the way one thrill follows another,
is enough to satisfy all who crave lor
sensations. There are so many thrills
that it necessitates the work of no less
than four heroes to meet the emergen

villains who attempt to make away with

that is sightly and picturesque, so much
that is novel, amusing and instructive,
sucn rapid movement, so generous a
provision of unquestionable strong act
ing, that one may venture npon empha
sis in proclaiming its merits. Tbe "King
of the Opium Ring" Is a welcome relief
from the marring monotony of the brand
of "London thriller," with which the
popular priced American theaters have
long been overloaded.

J. Lelland Henderson, the Hood River
attorney, yesterday mailed to the county
clerk a plat of Wacoma and a re-plat of
South Wacoma that measures about
four feet square, with the request that
it be placed on record. As the record
books measure about 14x24 inches to the
page the county clerk very naturally
informed Mr. Henderson that the only
way a facsmile record of Wacoma could
be mado was bv nailing the original plat
on the side wall of the court house; but
as "the man who owns the court house"
would probably object it was suggested
that It -was probably best to reduce the
plat to the limits of the record books.
And it was so ordered.
An item in a recent issue of the Min

from Michigan, Indiana and Illlnoi".
It is such facts as these that indicate in
a pr Action 1 way the wonderful natural

had recently come to Portland from
Minneapolis, informs the Telegram that
Oregon apples sell readily in the hitter

Water was again struck today in tbo
artesian well that is being bored a few
hundred yards south of tbe reservoir.
Tliii is the fourth time that water baa
been struck in this well which has now
reached a depth of 445 feet.. The first
water as struck at a depth of 105 feet.
The second an 1 larger stream was ltraek.
at a depth of 200 feel. The third stream
was struck at a depth of 390. None of
these streams rose to the surface, and
the last one lacks 315 feet of reaching
that point. Biring will be continued
until a depth of 650 feet is reached, un

Cbas. E. Blaney's elaborate scenic
production, ''The King of the Opium
Ring," has caught ou with theater goers
in a decided manner wherever presented.
It will be seen here at the Vogt opera
house on Wednesday, Oct. lOtb. The
author claims that the play was written
from facts, suggested by an incident of
real life. Upon this idea the author has
created a play of a thoroughly hnman
character, dealing with the lives of the
lowly and picturing in a mjht graphic
style scenes front real life that are daily
enacted in that great cosmopolitan
colony of 'Frisco. Four acts are em
ployed for the doaling out of the plot,
and, as in all good melodramas, the
story ends with the triumph of virtue
and the downfall of degradation and
A. W. Bullock and J. L. Gilmore, of
the Blockbonse neighborhood, Klickitat
county, desire to register a kick against
the Rockland ferry because, as they
claim, after arriving at the other side of
the river last evening at not later than
ten minutes past six o'clock, and while
it was yet light enough for them to be
distinctly seen, they were compelled to
camp all night on the other side, sleep
in wet blankets and pay tbe exhorbitant
rates for feed that is charged over there
to any one unfortunate enough to be
compelled to stay there over night.
Tbe Ciihoniclb thinks these .men have
a right to be beard, just as the ferry
men have a right to answer them if
they see fit. But one thing is certain;
It would be big money in the pockets of
The Dalles business men and others if
this city should purchase that ferry and
run it, at least pirt of the year, free.
Messrs. Bullock and Gilmore are con
vinced that a large number of Klickitat
farmers would be glad to contribute to a
fund for this purpose.
