Mr. Morton's Route Does Hot
the fossil People.
R. H. Norton and crew reached the
coal mines last Friday with the prelim
inary survey from The Dalles. Mr.
Norton was in town Saturday and ap
peared to be well pleased with the
practicability of his route. The general
route swings out southward from The
Dalles, and takes in Dufur and the Cas
cade mountains, and then goes through
Tygh valley and then down White river
to the Deschutes ; thence up Bake Oven
creek to the confluence of Deep creek ;
thence up Deep creek and on the high
divide, leaving the city of Antelope about
five miles to the south ; thence Dy Mail
Sacks down Dry creek to the John Day
beiow the mouth of Curran creek ; thence
up Dry Hollow to the mines. The dis
tance is about 150 miles by the survey.
It is about 75 miles on an air line from
The Dalles to the mines. The prelim
inary survey crosses the John Day river
nine tiroes in the distance it travels up
that stream some 15 miles. From this
finding of facts we would conclude that
Mr.' Norton's route is unnecessarily long
and not very practicable. It leaves
nearly all the resources that The Dalles
wants far to the north of it, and The
Dalles is bound to get the Dufur and Tygh
valley trade without any railroad. What
The Dalles ought to have is a road
direct to the mines and tapping the best
part of Sherman and Gilliam counties
the agricultural part. It would appear
that the Norton route goes fifty miles
out of the wav in order to avoid all the
country that it would pay The Dalles to
build a road over.
Mr. Norton has arrived in The Dalles
from Fossil and tells the Chronicle that
the route surveyed ia the most direct
and practical that can be found. He
started out to find the best grade no
matter whose feelings he hurt or what
towns were passed by. No intentional
slight was intended to anybody or place,
but no deviation for personal reasons was
entertained for a moment. Had Mr.
Norton taken the advice of every would
be engineer and railroad buildier he met
the party would have been in the field
all summer. ' The statement in the Fos
sil Journal that it is about seventy-five
miles on an air line is untrue on the
face of it aa a glance at the' map will
show, and when the configuration of the
intervening country is considered, the
immense' canyons and ravines, the dis
tance surveyed may be considered short
instead of fifty miles too long. ' ' ' '
Mr. Norton will complete the "office
work" as speedily as possible, and when
the profile is ready will arrange his facts
and submit a report to the subscribers
to the fund.
'- There was a photographic outfit taken
with the party, and so soon as the pic
tures taken can be made available Mr.
Norton will- deliver a public lecture il
lustrated with views of the country
traversed 'which' will be a revea.ation to
our citizens we feel sure. .
An Old Pioneer Gone. '
' 8chool Superintendent Troy Shelly re
ceived a telegram today from . Milton
Odell, at Hood River, which stated that
his father, William Odell, was dead, and
that the funeral would take place at that
place tomorrow, at 11 o'clock. Mr. Shel
ley will go down and conduct the services.
Mr. Odell was well known all over Wasco
county, and was one of its early settlers.
His demise has been expected for some
' ' Examination of Teachers.
Notice is hereby given that for the
purpose of making an examination of
all persons who may offer themselves as
candidates for teachers of the schools of
this county, the county school superin
tendent thereof will hold a public exam
ination at The Dalles, Wednesday, May
27th, at 12 o'clock
Dated, this 16th dav of May, 1891.

Baby is sick. The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
ly without cause, when he inquired of a
druggist of the same city what was best
to give a baby for a cold"? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte
nance showed that the pet of the family,
if not the idol of his life was in distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," was the druggist's answer.
"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print
ing Co., don't you? inquired the drug
gist. "His baby, when eighteen months
old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and drank the whole of
it. Of course "it made the baby vomit
very freely but did not injure it in the
least, and what is more, it cured the ba
by's cold. The .teamster already knew
thevvalue of the Remedy,' having used it
himself, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving it even to a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.

A PUBLIC PARK.
A Heed that Gives The Dalles a Title to j
One. " ? - :
The Chronicle a day or two ago' pub
lished the statement that a public park
was much needed for the use of the city.

Ldonated for the use of a park and we
publish the deed below :

A Most Successful GatheringEveryone
Pleased With the Result.
. Wasco Observer. :
' As we go to press the above, which is
a local and not ' State institute is being
held in the public hall at Wasco. So
far the meeting has been a most success
ful one. Profs. French and Letcher, of
the State Agricultural college at Carvallis
are both present and are rendering val
uable aid in the institute work. We
regret that we are nnable to publish
more than a synopsis of the proceedings,
our space and lime being limited. The
institute was called to order by John
Medler, who appointed B. F. Fike sec
retary. The proceedings opened with' a
musical selection by the Wascd brass
band which the boys rendered in first
class style. Then followed the address
of welcome by Wm. Holder, state grange
lecturer, which was of a very pleasing
character. ' The choir then rendered
some vocal music in a most ' pleasing
manner, Mrs. McPherson presiding . at
the organ, and the following ladies and
fentlemen assisting: Mrs. Elder, Mrs.
Iart Andrews, Mrs. Woodworth, Mrs.
Barzee, Miss Jennie Reynolds, Miss
Jennie Belsheeand Miss Agnes Sbepard,
Professor Cameron, and W. S. Barzee.
Professor Letcher's response to the
address of welcome was listened to with
wrapt interest. The professor acknow
ledged in graceful language the kind
words of welcome offered by the previ
ous speaker, and then proceeded .to
sketch in' a very t interesting manner
the workings of the State Agricultural
college. This institute is supported by
the state and its object is to - instruct
students scientifically and practically in
the best methods of farming. The Agri
cultural department is separate-: and
distinct from the literary, and in. this
separation of the two branches Professor
Letcher saw a great advantage. When
the two are operated together the agri
cultural generally suffers, as the students
of the other branch sneer at the farmer
student and his work, thereby causing a
feeling of prejudice false prejudice to
arise against the latter; ' In this-respect
the Oregon college had a great advantage
over that of California, the agricultural
and literary departments of the latter
In the college at CorvaUia the students
are required to work on the farm one
hour each day and any labor they per
form outside of that is paid for. The
students are instructed in militarv tac
tics in order i fit. thm t i i

who partook of the good things provided.
After dinner an instrumental selection
was given by the band, after which Mrs.

her family, the lady was nnable to be
