THE I'VSHimi DALLES,
Slip 1m All Right and Will Rapidly
Come to the Front.
Portland Kveniiijr Telegram.
.1. 11. Cradlebaugh, editor of The
Dalles Chroniclki arrived this morning
from Salem, where he has been trying to
secure legislation for the iortage railway.
He goes home tonight. He was met at
a down-town hotel by a representative
of the Telegram and said :
"We cannot hope for much assistance
from the Oregon or Washington legisla
tures in regard to a ortage railway or
opening of the Columbia. I Ixlieve we
will Ins conielled to wait for the general
government. The completion of the
locks at the Cascades will be all right for
that obstruction. At Celilo ami The
Dalles we must have inclines built, and
then try to secure the right of wav over
the Union Pacific for trackage privileges.
"A year ago this winter we lost a great
number of sheep, 150,000 pelts having
been sold at The Dalles, yet, for all that,
we have the greatest "wool-producing
section on the coast. We will ship this
year 6,000,000 or 7,000,000 pounds of
wool, even if the cold weather did kill so
many sheep last winter. As for coal, we
think we have it in paying quantities,
and I hear that the president of the
Lehigh Valley railroad and the Lehigh
Coal Company is coming here to see
about the construction of a railroad from
The Dalles about 120 miles southeasterly
to the coal mines. This will open up
vast fields suitable for the production of
large quantities of excellentgrain, which
are not cultivated now because too remote
from a railroad. With wheat selling at
only 50 cents, the farmers will not haul
it any greater distance than they can go
and return the same day.
"Business is good at The Dalles and
we have a lively town.. Come up here or
send an agent and.we will try and get up
a good list of subscribers for you, as we
are delighted with the Telegram, now
that it is an independent paper furnish
ing live news. We are grateful for our
efforts in behalf of an open river."
The Dalles People Happy.
The Dalles eoplehad a jubilee Friday
night over the passage of Watkins' port
age railway bill. Bunds played, streets
were ablaze with colored lights, speeches
were' made, and the people were happy.
A public meeting was attended bv six
teen hundred people. On motion "of E.
B. Dnfnr it was declared that "the peo
ple of The Dalles, in mass meeting
assembled, unanimously request our rep
resentatives in the legislature to use all
honorable means to secure the passage of
Senator Raley's bill, that Eastern Oregon
may be free." If Senator Raley's bill
passes, Pendleton will celebrate the event
as becomes a people delivered from bond
age. We thank The Dalles people for
thinking of us at such an auspicious
time. Their declaration-will have it s ef
fect, and we are grateful for it.
IMed at a Ripe Old Arc.
Mrs. Mary B. Corum died last night
at the residence of her daughter Mrs.
Nancy B. Sanford at : Wariniiv
The venerable old lady came to this
state from Missouri sixteen years ago, and
was well up in years when she,concluded
to renew her youth by coming to" East
ern Oregon. Had she lived until the
9th day of May next she would have
reached the age of 90 years. She was
loved and respected by all who knew
her. Her husband has been dead for
some years, but he fought in the war up
to the time of his death, his good wife
enjoyed a pension from the government
on account of his war services.

. A ' Plesant Social.
Nearly a hundred of the numbers of the
Christian Endeavor Society of the Cong
regational church and their friends met at
the residence of Hon. J. L. Story and
were the guests of his "charming daugh
ters last night. The evening was passed
in an exceedingly pleasant manner. The
following programme was had :
The exercises were began by a piano
solo by Miss Iva Brooks and Mrs. W. D.
Palmer which was very well executed.
Following this came a select reading by
Miss Ada Woods, which was excellently '
done. Next on the programme was a
song, "Ah, Could I Teach the Nightin-j
gale," by Misses Grace Crandall and
May Williams, which was so well ren
dered that the fair singers were awarded
a vigorous encore. Whittier's "Slave
Ship," a recitation by Mr. Winterton
Curtiss, was next had and was given
with much dramatic force and fire. A
cornet solo, "Grand Fantasia of Bright
Visions," by Mr. J. P. Benton, with
Miss Brooks as accompanist, was most
acceptably given. The real gem of the
evening was Miss Ruth Cooper's recita
tion of "Aunt Tabithia's Way," and
showed that the modest little lady had
true dramatic talent. ' A group of stat
uary, "-Napoleon crossing the Deleware,"
or something of that sort closed the pro
gramme and the balance of the evening
was passed in games with a nice' lunch
at its close.
An Important Decision. . ,
An important point of law wliich will
lie of interest to the people of counties
who are contemplating the building of
county of countv bridges, was decided
by Judge Deady, in the case of the
Pacific Bridge Company vs. Clackamas
county. The court held that that the
mention of the "Board of the county
commissioners" in section 4141 of the
compilation of 1887, relating to the let
ting of contracts for the building of
county bridges, is null and void, because
there is no such tribunal known ti the
constitution or laws of Oregon as a board
of county commissioners, and the legis
lature might as well have said "the
board of missions." Oregonian.

Ladies. Beware of the Hog.
If a dog's bark ia often worse than his
bite, so, too, are the "kisses" which he
bestows on his human friends. A dis-
tinguiflhed Viennese medical authority
nas just announced the rapid spread in
Austria-Hungary of a new disease hav
ing its origin in the osculations offered
by small lapdogs to their mistresses.
These pets, by kissing their fair owners'
faces, impart a disease germ known as
the cisterens, which eventually finds its
way to the liver and other organs. The
mortality in Vienna and elsewhere from
this cause Among; ladies of high social
position is reported to be very great.
People indiscreetly fond: of dogs should
bear in mind that there is a limit they
should put to their pets' endearment if
they would avoid all risk of becoming
inoculated with disease germs only less
terrible than those of hydrophobia. In
