A smart shower of rain fell last night. The Dalles is the healthiest place in Oregon today. The Senates has adopted a resolution to adjourn sine die Friday night 12 o'clock. The directors of the new farmers' trad ing association who are putting in the new store in this city are in sespion here today. It looks as if the slogan in Kastern tlregon might ! "No democrat need apply." It is correctly reported that some one ib to be found a K napping some of lliese days. Mr. Smith French returned front t?alem yesterday. He reports that the compromise water hill is in a fair way to Iwonie a law. The Portland Speed Association will raise $28000 in purses for this year's races. $8000 for the spring meeting and $20,000 ior the fall races. )pen rivers are successfully blocked, not only by a single senator but even by si senator's clerk. The senate has got the atbstruction business down fine. The Oregon legislature will adjourn at the close of the week. But lovers of the sensational are consoled with the thought that congress holds on till the ides of March. The Diamond mill was compelled to xhut down yesterday morning on account of the engine becoming disabled. It will start up tomorrow morning if noth ing farther prevents. " The flag. on the state hQnse lias been ;it half mast on six different occasions during the session, out of respect to the memory of the historian. Geo. Brancroft, Senator Kasthain, King Kalakuo, Secre tary Windom, Admiral Porter, and Gen eral Sherman. "The Spokane 1'evieiv make the. follow ing good suggestion : Cleveland pro bably lieard that Fen noyer favored free coinage. Therefore, he opposed it. Xow place Cleveland at the head of the ticket and Pennoyer at the tail and you have it. The voters will be caught "both comin' and a gwine." Astonishing how astute these politicans are. The argument ujmjii the demurer in the ease of Mayor Moody against nine citizens, -as concluded in the circuit vourt last evening and taken under ad visement by Judge Webster.. This is the case wherein the mayor claims his reputation has been damaged to the ex tent of $50,000 by reason of certain charges preferred against him by the de fendants before the city council. Old winter had but a few more days to put in an appearance until Tuesday of this week came along, and then it looked for a time as if spring had ceased striving to gain a victory over her unusually dis agreeable associate.' It snowed nearly wll.day on Tuesday,' but the fall was so ge.ntle, and the day so warm, that the Tbeautiful" in this valley melted as , rapidly as it came down, and evervbody was pleased. PrinevilU News. On the first page of the Chhonicb ap lear8 the advertisement of Mays & Crowe. This firm succeeds to the busi ness of the late firm of Abrams & Stewart and will continue in the same location, but with added facilities. They are making many additions to their already large stock and will have as complete an establishment as exists in Eastern Oregon. Both the partners are well known and universally respected citizens and will soon take rank among our leading merchants. A prominent physician and old arniv surgeon in eastern Iowa, was called away lrom home for a few days ; during his ab" sence one of the children contracted a severe cold and his wife bought a bottle of Chamberlin'a Cough Remedy for it. They were so much pleased that they afterwards used several bottles at var ious times. He said, from experience mm iv, ucaegmuru ll on L11C xiiuhl reli able preparation in use for colds and that it came the nearest being a specific of any medicine he had ever; seen. For Bale by Snipes'& Kinersly.- . It seems that . the people who are engineering the scheme for a new morn- ini? dflilv. in "Pnrr.lsind i a tro oTcwnfcul some very sharp practice. The Oregon- tan Has the exclusive morning franchise f routine Associated Press for Portland and nsother paper can by any possibility get it, without the consent of the big daily. The manipulators of the soon-to-be-born -daily . got the franchise for Albina, without any trouble and now that Albina has been consolidated with Portland the new paper comes in with all the rights of a full -fledged Portlander. We venture that a big lawsuit will grow out of it but it was a bright idea all the same. Rev. Thos. Atchison of Dufnr is in the city. r . Mr. A. C. Stanford, of Waniic, was in the city today.'. Next Sunday will be George Washing ton's birthday. We learn that Mr. Thauborn, of Kings ley, is lying very ill. ' The bill requiring barber shops to close on Sundays has passed the senate. It is believed that the cleverest Indian fighter in the nation today is reservation whiskey. The scheme to publish in the news papers the laws passed by the legisla ture has failed. We understand the supply depart ment of the U. P. has ordered a large in crease of supplies sent to -The Dalles shops. If there is any meaning in it, what is it? ' The governor of California has signed a bill offering $2,500 reward for the arrest and conviction of Jhe murderers of the old gentleman and his wife at Napa, a few days ago. A little friend of ours writes the follow ing: "I will tell you a story, of a man who had red, white and blue whiskers ; first, when he was twenty -one he had red whiskers, then when he was fifty he had white whiskers, and as hegrew older they got thin, and the wind blew through them. See how that worked? That is red, white and blue." 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. Kat Oregoiiiuu. 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. HOTEL - ARRIVALS.

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."

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.
