- We have talked with Henry Maier,
Frank Roach and F. W..L. Skibbe, and,
judging from . their accounts - and the
jolly appearance of others whom we
have seen, they have had a royal - good
time. The veterans and the - volunteers
threw open the gates of the city, to The
Dalles boys, and, besides the banquet
ing and. many -social events, decided to
stay with it; and at the meeting, in the
regular order of business' yesterday aft
ernoon, in return for the kind attentions
bestowed upon them, The Dalles volun
teers invited ' them' to' come here next
year, and the invitation .was accepted.
Permanent organization was effected
by electing officers for the ensuing year
as follows: President, A. B. Stuart;
first vice-president, Harry Morgan ; sec

Til Ocliooo .Mines.
"- - Referring " to devclonments in the
Elliott- discovery, the Review says the
pffer.ei.Jlper., ton. by;.the Salt Lake
reduction works for;the; - ore;.,. has
awakened considerable- interest -among
the .people there, and rhas caused Btock
in the mine to take a sudden jump In
.vajue.Coneiderable stock has changed
hands during the last week, the highest
price paid being cents per share.
The 'company - was incorporated about
six- months ago with a capital stock of
$3,000 in shares of 50 cents each, and
since ' incorporating the company " has
continued -developing their property,
until now, they have the mine fairly
opened, and -have about three hundred
tons of ore on the dump.- The1 property
is located, -thirty miles from Prineville.
There; will be "a meeting.t the directors
of the company ' next Monday, and it is
thought steps will be taken to put up a
mill this fall. The mill contemplated
is a four-stamp prospecting mill, capa
ble of working from seven to ten tons of
ore in twenty-four hours, and will meet
the present demands in prospecting the
mines. The Review has always held to
the idea tliat there were valuable min
eral deposits in that connty and has
frequently urged tho business men of
Prineville to, encourage prospectors, and
it now has reason to believe a rich
thing has been struck on Ochoco, which
will develop-into a paying andexten
sive mine. . . . . ,

CASS SPEAKS AGAIN.
A fl airs About-.Caaoi.de Locks. Some
Special to The Chronicle,) .
Cascade Locks, Sept. - 5. -Events
transpiring during the past week have
not revealed anything of importance,
save tbe old routine, which is reposing
on the couch of delay, and is cause for
comment. Yon were iniormed that the
plans and specifications of tbe locks and
canal were partly completed, and sent to
the chief of the engineer department at
Washington, and that the other portion
would be forwarded in 'a few ' days ;
which I believe has beon done, or will
be done in a ehort time ; and as soon as
examined and passed no doubt will be
advertised, if former advices are to be
relied on. There is a deal of red tape in
the whole thincr, and there is a great
deal of railroad influenceorm'uat it, con
tinually worked in, and it will be one of
the seven or eleven wonders of the world
if you or I ever have an opportunity to
get' through the great thoroughfare any
other way than on sole leather..
The D. P. & A. N. Co. flatter them
selves that they soon will send their
steamers through to Astoria, laden with
the products of the Inland Empire, by
this route. We think they may, but
when they do, their steamers will be
new ones, instead of what they are run
ning now. " - .
. We hear that some of your enterpris
ing citizens are planning to bid on the
canal ;. also, that there are several large
contractors in Portland hankering after
the job when the good time comes.
Forest fires, and especially fires along
the river, haye done a deal of damage.
A few days ago, Mr. Hamilton . had
nearly, one hundred cords of wood
burned near Herman creek, and several
farmers had fences burned and more or
lees property destroyed. . These fires
along the railroad track, which are
frequent,' are caused., by : sparks from
engines, without a shadow of doubt.
The old block-honse, just opposite, is
almost ready to lay its glory down, and
be numbered with the things that have
been. This old structure was built in
the winter of 1855-56, by order of
Gen. Wool, 'I believe, and was. occu
pied by a detachment of infantry for a
short time during the Yakima Indian
war. Just below, on the river bank,
about two miles away, was another one,
in, which Gen. Sheridan,' then second
lieutenant, was quartered, and where, it
is said, he "smelled -the first gunpow
der."- This -one .has long since fallen,
and partly -washed into, the.riyerj.by the:
crumbling banks giving away to the in
fluence of floods. The place is only
known now by the name of Sheridan
The upper block-house, while historic
in a degree, has none of - the glory- that
hovers over the spot of Sheridan Point,
ior. there was where men's, souls were
tried in defending themselves and those
who were nnder their care, against the
hostile tribes who congregated at, the
Middle Cascades for the purpose ' of
massacre and to hold the whole country
from .being occu pied by; the whites. I
think the last log is gone, and the spot
ia only known in memory. .t-V? A l '.
Col. Sinnott,' of your city, conceived
the plan of taking down the upper
block-bouse some time ago,. and remov
ing it to the' worlds ' fair" at 'Chicago.
The idea was good enough, in its way,
but if the Colonel will put-" it in repair
where it is, and terrace the bill on
which it stands,, and beautify the
