The Trial Trip a Complete Succes
Turned Over to the Stockholders
The trial trip of the Regulator yester
day was a complete success. Her con
tract called for a speed of fifteen miles
an hour. At the end of the first hour,
after leaving her dock at The Dalles, she
had made 18 miles against a 20 mile
dead wind. It is perfectly safe to say
she is good for 20 miles down stream
any time. The sixty invited guests,
nearly all stockholders or their wives,
were delighted with the trip. At every
residence and hamlet alongside the river
the people rushed out to get a glimpse
of the boat as she passed and waved
their handkerchiefs in salute. At the
residence of Mr. S. R. Husbands an
anvil was brought into requisition and a
salute of three rounds was fired. From
.the Mt. Hood hotel the stars and stripes
fluttered on the breeze. The boat left
her landing at The Dalles at 9 :37 a. m
and arrived at Cascade Locks at 12 :03 p.
m., making the trip in 2:26, the distance
being 45 mile$. The Regulator got back
to The Dalles a little before 5 o'clock p.
m. This morning the directors of The
Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navigation
company held a meeting in the room
back of the office of Contractor Hngh
Glenn when the boat was formally
tnrhed over by Paquet & Smith to the
directors of the navigation company.
An adjourned council meeting was
held last evening at which all the mem
bers were present except Councilman
Maier. An ordinance was passed grant
ing The Dalles, Portland, and Astoria
Navigation company the right of way for'
a boat landing from low to high water.
Another ordinance was passed appropri
ating $1000 for the relief of the sufferers
by the late fire. H. Glenn was granted
permission to build a temporary wooden
building on block 5 in Bigelow's Addi
tion. Rumor Denied. -
To whom it may concern:
"It has come to our notice that some
malicious person or persons have been
industriously circulating a report to the
effect that we have raised the price of
rough lumber from $12.00 to $18.00 per
thousand, since the fire. We desire to
deny this report as it ia false, our prices
for rough lumber and all other kinds of
building material remain the same as
before the fire. ' ""

Sunday evening while Joseph. Noyes,
ot Myrtle Point, was on his way home
with a load of lumber, and when a
short distance - from home, his horses
ran away, throwing him from the wagon
and breaking one of .his ankles, so as
the bones protruded through the flesh,
and inflicting a severe wound in the
temple. . .
A great wagon- road scheme is afloat
for Western - Washington. ' It is to have
a public highway' from the Straits of
Fucat'o the Columbia river." This move
ment means a coast road of nearly 300
miles in length extending across the
state. - The result would be the immedi
ate settlement of a big unoccupied terri
tory, which would add immensely to the
wealth and population of the state. At
torian. It is an old story, says an exchange, of
the Scotch Presbyterian who said :
"That the devil is bad you can tell by
his very name, for if you, take' away the
d, it is evil, and take away the de, it is
vile, and take away the dev, it is ill, so
ho is an ill, vile, evil devil 1"
