quarters of a mile and a depth nowhere
less than twenty-seven feet. These
depths are referred to the plan of average
lowest low water. The distance from the
sounding giving thirty feet on the outside
of the bar to the same depth on the in
side is now but one-half mile."
. We are very much pleased to learn
. that the merchants and business men of
Portland have signified their intention
of assisting in a substantial way towards
placing a boat on the lower river to con

has received the hearty endorsement of
the Portland Chamber of Commerce and
- of the Portland Transportation Bureau,

H. Dodd, T. F. Osborne and other prom
inent and influential citizens are willing

The ; "Regulator", Goes Down the
Ways into the Peacefnl Waters' -of
AN OPEN RIVER TO THE SEA.
Besal Frrncii Break th Proverbial
Bottle of Champagne Over the Bow
A Successful Launch.
: Everything was in readiness for the
"Regulator" at eleven o'clock this fore
noon. . An hour before the,' time an
nounced for the launch large numbers of
of the citizens bent their 'way l towards
the foot of Washington street, and as the
boat was cut loose it looked as if half of
the city were present.
- The eremony was opened by a speech
from Mr. B. S. Huntington in which he
congratulated the people on the present
progress and hopeful outlook of an en
terprise that was but the first step in
the solution . of the question of an
open river. Mr. Huntington thanked
the directors on behalf of the people
for what they had already accom
plished and by -' anticipation for
the greater .things yet to come. , inree
cheers and a tiger were then given for
"tHfe first boat of The Dalles, Portland
and Astoria Navigation company." It
was now exactly 3 by the clock, and as
the mingling sound died upon the air,
the voice of the foreman rang out, "One,
two, three!" there were a few knocks of
tWorkmena' hammers, and the noble and
graceful boat, like a thing of life
and -beauty glided into the river.'
At this moment Miss Bessie
French who was standing at the bow
broke a bottle of wine and pronounced
the mystic words that christened this
lovely apparition of forest, mine and
human genius "The Regulator." The
launch was a complete success. Long
may she proudly wear " the name, and
long may she deserve to wear it!
. The Regulator is 150 feet in length by
twenty-eight feet beam and six and a
half feet hold. She will have a maxim
um speed of seventeen miles an hour.
Her capacity is 240 tons. Her engine
has a sixteen-inch cylinder and six foot
stroke and has a force of from 300 to 350
horse power. .
The following persons were aboard
the Regulator at the time of the launch :
D- M. French, A. S. Macallister, M. T.
Nolan, Orion Kinersly, Hugh Glenn, B.
F. Laughlin, Dr. D. Siddall, C. L. Phil
lips, George Filloon, W. Lord, Master
Ray Logan, Master Bennie Snipes, Miss
Edna Glenn and Miss Bessie French.
A Family Reunion.
The Dalles can boast of having an old
fashioned family as far as size is con
cerned. . We refer to that of Deacon and
Mrs. E. P. Roberta of this city: Last
night for the first time in three years
the whole - familv of thirteen persons
gathered under the roof tree. Mr. W,
J. Robert lately returned from from Bos
ton had the pleasure of meeting his two
brothers, D. H. and T. M. from the
state university at Eugene City, and
with the whole family sat down to a
home dinner. The father and . mother
have lived in The Dalles since 1866, al
though their post office has been at this
place since 1862. Death has never in
vaded the ranks of the family and all
are reasonably -well and happy. The
children have all been well educated and
are coming forward in a way that makes
happy the declining days of the honored
old father and moti.er, who are them
selves loved for the good they have done
in this community. May they all live
to enjoy many more happy reunions. -

Board of Directors.
Speaking of thesub-treasury scheme,
with which many of the unreasoning

Sam Jones savs : "Pin its ears back and
grease it, and it is the easiest thing in
the world to swallow. Grease it with
green grease. I mean. That makes
things look right. I saw a fellow the
other day talking about the whiskey bus
iness, and he had a card the size of an
envelope. On it he had in big letters :
'W-R-O-N-G. He held it up and said:
You see that? You see 'wrong' on it.'
Then he put a five dollar bill over it and
held it up. 'Now,' he says, 'you can't
see it. It's there, but vou can't tell it.'
That's the way it is with a heap of
things put money on it and it looks all
right, benator -tjeorge is talking more

A Bright Ybnng prelcgrai.b. Operator. -
Some three weeks ago Mr. Turner, the
efficient telegraph operator at The Dal les
W. U. telegraph office, was taken so ill
that he had to give up work in the office
here, and Mr. Balfe Johnson, a pupil of
the Wasco Independent Academy, took
up the work and has carried it on ever
sine". Balfe has never had the advan
tage of a regular education in a telegraph
office, but has picked it up by operating
over one of the amateur lines, where
people play at telegraphy. For a day or
t wo the Chboniclb was doubtful that the
young operator would be able to take its
associated press report, but Balfe's cour
age grew with the emergency and he
managed to handle the report and so far
has been able to get in both on time
and in such a condition that it could all
be used. He had never taken a line of
press dispatches until he was plunged at
once right into the midst of it, when Mr.
Turner gave up the sounding key ; but
he has been able to take in the vicinity
of a thousand words a day in a man
ner that has been " satisfactory to the
Chronicle. We think it remarkable
that he should be able to do so well and
the telegraph company is to be cr ngrat
ulated on having secured so bright a
"kid" as Balfe to take the office at this
place. The young man has a bright fu
ture before him.
In the Interest of Good Morals.
The Dalles, June 25, 1891. .
Editor Chronicle : Believing that
your paper is not afraid to tell the truth
and believing also that you , wilj stand in
with every thing in the -interest of de
cency and good morals, I ask 'your per
mission to enter my earnest protest, as a
tax-payer and . property-holder in the
East End, against the establishment of a
house of prostitution within a few yards
of the passenger depot, and near where,
as residents we are obliged to keep our
wives and children. - It is no secret that
the house lately occupied as a restaurant
just north of the East End saloon, is in
habited by four or five brazen women
who are not content with plying their
infamous business behind drawn blinds
but insist at the approach of every pas
senger train, in exhibiting .their half
naked busts through the open windows
and even going out upon the street to
solicit custom. Mr. Editor, we don't
propose to stand this state of affairs and
we won't stand it. If there is no legal
way to suppress these women and drive
them out of the r nest we propose to try
some other way. Their presence here is
an ontrage on all ' decency. Their
drunken, reckle&s origies are a menance
to all the property in the neighborhood.
Will the authorities take notice or shall
we take the law in our own hands?
The Better Place.
There is no better place or location
than The Dalles for the establishment
of a creamery and a fruit cannery, for
fhe reason that there are manv caHons
of milk that go to waste every day in the
vicinity of The Dalles that would be
made use of, besides the supply ot our
home markets with good, healthful
butter, so that our merchants would not
have to pay extortionate railroad freights,
and would thereby otherwise be a great
saving to the consumer as well. It
would necessitate more care and atten
tion to the milch cows and would be a
saving investment from the start. The
ruit industry in Eastern Oregon is now
receiving more attention than ever before
and a fruit cannery will be, and in fact
is now, a much needed industry. It
some of our good people were to establish
a creamery and a cannery here now, in
one year all would wonder how we ever
got along without these much needed in
dustries. Shall we have them? Wanco

A suggetion : If you are troubled with
rheumatism or a lame back, allow us to
suggest that you try the following simple
remedy : Take a piece of flannel the size
of the two hands, saturate it with Cham
berlain's Pain Balm and bind it on over
the seat of pain. It will produce a pleas
ant warmth and relieve you of all pain.
Many severe cases have been cured in
this way. The Pain Balm can be obtained
from Snipes & Kinersly.

B. Denn, a well known dairyman of
New Lexington, Ohio, will be of interest
to persons troubled with Rheumatism.

Pain Balm for nearly two years, four
bottles in all, and there is nothing I have
ever used that gave me as much relief
for rheumatism. We always keep a bot
tle of it in the house." For sale by
