band, 3d Regt., O. N. G., will assemble
at the armory, fully armed and equipped
for battalion drill, on Friday evening,
April 3d at 8 o'clock p. m. sharp.
, II. Capt. G. T. Thompson will detail
a guard from A company consisting of
1 sergeant, 1 corporal and six men, who
will preserve order in the armory during

An April Fool Joke.
Yesterday morning one of leading
phyioians received a telegram which
read as follows : "Come first train,
fractured thigh, good pay- J. H. Cradle
baugh, Hood River." Hastily grasping
his ''saw and whittles" the doctor hur
ried to the depot only to learn that no
train would leave for four or five hours.
He then, with all possible speed rushed
for the telegraph office. On the way he
met a patient who wanted a prescription
Dut tne doctor coula not stop. A man
had broken his leg at Hood River, and
he must hasten to inform, him that he
would be down at the earliest possible
moment. Arriving at the telegraph of
fice the doctor told the operator to rush
through a telegram to Hood River in
forming Mr. Cradlebaugh he would be
down to fix the man's leg as soon as
possible. The operator looked puzzled
there was a twinkle in his eye but the
doctor assured him there was no April
fool about it. He was simply replying
to the telegram the messenger boy had
brought him. Without thinking, the
operator said he knew nothing of the
telegram and the truth' began to dawn
upon the doctor that he was a victim of
an April joke and he hunted hard for a
crack in the floor to crawl into.
A HandMome Boat.
Within a few days a handsome little
boat will be launched which will be a
fine addition to The Dalles fleet. It ia a
skiff seventeen feet six inches long and
six feet six inches wide. The boat is
fitted with three pairs of oar locks and
carries two sails. . . It has a deep center
board, locker, etc., and has everything
in it that is essential to comfort. Ten to
twelve people can easily be carried in it
and be perfectly safe. The boat is built'
of cedar and while it is large it is ex
ceedingly light. The lines are beautiful
and it looks as if it might ride the water
like a thing of life. ' Mr. T. Oleson was
the designer and builder and all who
have seen the new boat say that it is a
credit to his skill as a builder. It will
be launched as soon as the water in the
creek is a little higher.

ton, arranging for battalion 'drill, - dress
parade and ball of the Third regiment.
This affair which occurs tomorrow (Fri
day) evening is given by the regiment as
a benefit for the band boys, who will be
there in their beautiful new uniforms
and furnish the martial strains for the
drill and parade, and also the grand
march. The music for the hop will be
rendered by Prof. Bergfeld's full orches

All passenger trains from this time
forward will stop at the Umatilla house
as well as at the passenger depot. Tick
ets for local trains can be; obtained at
the hotel, but baggage must be checked
at the depot. This will be a source of
great convenience to many who are
obliged to wait for weary hours on trains
that are hardly ever on time.
It is currently reported that Mr. John
Michell and Mr. V. H. Vanbibber of
this city have struck -"pay dirt." Some
time ago they bought a piece of land in
Whatcom, Wash., for $5000 and a lucky
turn .in the wheel of fortune warrants
them in, today, figuring on getting $120,
000 for it. . The Chronicle congratulates
the Mountaineer on its good luck.

A SOLDIERS WIDOW.
Mrs. John A. Logan Denies the .Report
That She Intends Marrying A pain.
Washington. March 30. General
John A. Logan's widow has thought . it
proper to notice some rumors which
hinted at a probable marriage. Mrs,
Logan says to the society reporter of a
If 1 bad no sentiment about remain
ing the widow of General Logan and I
have I have no desire or need to re
marry, since, thanks to congress and the
general s mends, 1 am well provided for,
and 1 now eniov the friendship of nianv
good men who were his friends, and
whose wives are my mends. Why
should I want to sacrifice all these bles
sings and associations of thirty years of
wedded life for the nncertainitv of other
Foatoffice Robbers Sentenced.
A little over a month ago the poetoffice
at Blalocks was broken mtc and some
money and a lot of provisions, etc., in
the store connected with theorhce stolen.
Five persons were arrested charged with
committing the crime. John Daring
and James Duval, on being arraigued in
the United-States circuit court, pleaded
guilty to the charge and were sentenced
to three vears each in the Demtentiary.
Frank Williams and Ed. Swartz also
pleaded euilty to the charge and were
sentenced to one year each in the peni
tentiary. The fifth man, John Doe, de
clined to plead guilty, but has since ex
pressed his intention to do so. Daring
and Duval were tne principals in tne
crime. They broke into the place first
and took the money and what other
stuff they wanted, and, going away, met
the other three, and went back and
handed out provisions, etc., to them till
they had enough. This is why Daring
and Duval got three years each while
the others got on with one year each. :
From the Catholic Sentinel we clip the
following, which we heartily endorse-
Between an eratic clergyman in New
York and a vixen in Chicago a scheme
has been advanced to organize a Catholic
political party. The idea is unworthy of
respect. No sensible Catholic, however
radical his religious views, will tolerate
tor a moment so chimerical and Tin
American a scheme. We have political
parties enough now into whic'i everv
American citizen, whether Pagan or
Christian, may enter to advance his in
terests in any field of legislation, if legis
lation were necessary. But we want no
legislation upon religious matters. We
want a vinculo between church and state
and will ever oppose any measure which
seeks to brine the two toeethen When
ever bigots of any denomination seek to
influence politics, that very moment
enouid every iair-minded American rise
and crush the monstrositv. No Catholic
ought for a moment to countenance it :
none will be more earnest in denouncing
or opposing such vicious tactics than our
Oliver Wendell Holmes, in one of his
charming essays, says however much we
may disagree as to the other qualities of
a eentleinan, all mankind agrees so far
as to unite in the negative postition that
he is not one who blows his nose with
his fingers. The mellow old doctor must
be wrong7 if webelieve the Des Moines
Register, for a few nights ago, at the
Grand Opera house in that city, Hon. J.
F. Willete, of Kansas, late candidate for
governor, in full view oi ms audience,
placed his index finger and thumb on
either side of his largest facial protuber-
erance, and did, actually did, the act
the autocrat so earnestly deprecates.
Really, stories about the sockless Jerry
Simpson may not be slanders, after all.
