Farewell Party. On ltst Friday
evening) in response to irmUtkms is
sued by the committee, quite a largtr
crowd, friends of the Poindoitef fami'
ly, assembled at Good Templar Hall in
this city to pay their parting regards to
the family of Mr. Thoa. W Poindexten
The Brass Band rus out in fall, and
music was abundant. Dancing was tht
amusement of the evening, and one (
the beat lap suppers that has ever been
spread in this city Was passed around.
The fnstivities of the evening were an
j"yed perhaps better than on any ou
casion tliab has taken .place kero' ff
years. The company was of the most
elite, and each and all seemed to be de
termined that the Poindexter family
ssould long rememb.r their farewell
party in Canyon City. They will be at
kindly received when they return.
A bill has been introduced in the
Senate by Col. N. II. Gates, joint Sen
ator from Wasco and Lake Counties,
for the creation of a new county Galled
Ochoco, with Prinesville as County
Seat. It takes off a portion of Grant
and a part of Wasco. The bill has
been read once. We are advised, how
evr that the bill will not v. It
will be remembered by gome, that w
told them last Spring that such a plan
had been laid by certain parties two
years ago; but they thought we were?
talking for fun. We are for. Gaant
County first, lust and all the time, and
shall guard her interest. The Coanty
is now so thinly populated that a da
cent road can hardly be found within
the limits. It would berf mere value
to all concerned if a bill was introduced
to force the D. M. R. Co. t work the
road from here to Tho Dalles.
Several parties are very anxious t
build houses in thU place, and an effort
should bo mde on tho part of our cit-
isens to hare the slaughter houses re
moved from the opposite side of the
cri-ek so as to give room for building
lota. We aro informed that the Gray
Brothers are perfectly willing to move
their slaughter houe to other quarters
and if Mr. Herburger could be induced
in some way to give his consent to more
bis then the lots could be staked off
and ere many months not a few hous-
ea w:uld be in course of erection and
the town double in size and population
Let some one start the ball in motion.-
It was our pleasure a few evenings
since, to listen to some of the moat de
lightful music that we have ever heard
on the Pacific Coast. It was at Dr. J.
W. Howard's and Mr, and Mrs, Mc
Coy were the performers on the piano
and violin. Mr MoCoy is the beg
violinist we have heard in a long tim;
while his wife is perfection on the
piano. She is a thorough music teach
er and will perhaps take up a class in
this city. The pup;ls would undoubt
edly soon be able to play many pieces
if they ahoald receive instructions from
The Edison Electric Light
Has thus far proved a failure ns a prac.
tical light for family use, and the own
ers of gas works breathe more freely
and see renerwed dividens near at hand,
but the Oregon Kidney Tea has been a
success from the first, paying jarge div
idends of restored health to all those
afflicted with backacha or any disease
of the kidneys or urinary organs, snd
carrying consternation to the pockets
of lival concerns with worthless nos
trumsto Eell. Ask for the Oregon
Kidney Tea and take nothing else.
