The Goldendale Sentinel yesterday
states that W. R. Dunbar has sent to
Vancouver and Walla Walla land offices
since Nov. 1st, 1892 for entry of land
$10,000: estimated for January and first
two days of February, from proofs ad
vertised to be made before him $33,400.
The Chronicle sanctum was most
happily1 surprised this afternoon by a
brief call from Capt. John W. Lewis,
register of the United States land office
in this city, who has beeu closely con
fined at his house for seven weeks past
by a serious illness. He is now improv
ing rapidly. .
The New Year party to be given by
the German Gesang Verin Harmonie,
will take place at Armory hallNew Years
Eve. Dec. 31st, 1892. A good time may
be expected, and all invited may be as
sured of a pleasant evening. Tickets
may be had at Kellers bakery at $1.00
Boys whose lack of better natures,
and generous instinct, precludes the pos

our Inland Empire fur bearing animals,
to be seen at B. Wolf's place today.
He has nearly every kind on hand, from
the bear to the skunk, including silver

Mr. L. Rice of Endersby, in the city
today, says the roads are much the best
in the city now, l here is plenty ot
snow for sleiehing, but it is soft, and the
ground is soaked with water under'' the
snow. At Ward's mill he says there
was a fall of three feet. On the creek,
in the vicinity of Davidson's, it was
twenty-two inches deep.
Discussing the jute sack business, and
works at the Salem penitentiary where
the convicts may be given useful em
ployment without 'detriment to the free
laboring classes ; it is suggested that the
Inland Empire, being the home of the
flax plant, where it is indigenous to the
soil, if an an effort was made might fur
nish the factory with an t-xcellent qual
ity of stock for sacks. The Chronicle
would be pleased to have some sugges
tions on this topic. .
A Washington dispatch yesterday
says: "Paul F. Mohr, of Tacoma, is
arain in Washington. Mohr is the man
who has opposed, with a great deal of
vigor, the project for a boat railway at
The Dalles on the Columbia river. He
does not anticipate that he will have to
make any effort . during the present

About midiiight'last night, as Officer
Chris. Bills was passing up Second
street, he discovered that the lights had
been extinguished in The Dalles Mer
cantile company's store. He soon found
that a glass in one of the 'front doors
had been broken in. He secured assist
ance to watch developments, and went
for Officer Gibons. The store was then
entered, when it was found that an In
dian boy, a boit 16 years .old, was in the
store. He had unlocked the store-room
door, and appeared to be waiting for a
pal. The supposition is that the safe
might have' been broken open, but for
the timely appearance of Mr. Bills. The
boy had been in town during the dav,
with other Indians of the Warm Springs
agency. He had gone to camp with the
older members of the tribe, and return
ed to town after nightfall. - He was dis
covered by his white sombrero, as he
skulked behind some sacks in the store
room. He had taken nothing but a
plentiful supply of candy. The officers
took him to jail, and he will be given an
opportunity to explain- the purpose -of
his nocturnal explorations. :
There was quite a rush at the stage
office last night of packages to be sent
Out this morning As the roads are very
bad the stage company is perplexed how
to accommodate everybody and not
overload the coaches. In order to pre
vent this it was decided to take only
such .'articles as were indispensably
necessary. 'Then the appeal was made
in each case. One man brought id a

" We have heard of absent-minded
people, but do not remember having met
one, face to face, until quite recently.
A gentleman at the U. P. R. ticket office
in The Umatilla house, applied for a
ticket to Portland. He appeared to be
thinking about something else when
the ticket was handed in him by Mr.
Batty, and . he proceeded to fold the
ticket double until it was in the shape
of a strip about of an inch wide.
He next seated biui.-elf in a chair
unobserved, and tore off bit after
bit of the paper, until the ticket was
consumed, and lay . scattered about his
feet on the floor. When his presence of
mind returned to him he arose, and ap
proaching Batty inquired fur the ticket.
"I gave it to you," was Batty's reply.
"I don't think you did," was the res-,
ponse. Batty was certain he did, and a
bystander corroborated the fact. This
lead to an investigation ; the fragmei. ts
were found; but as it seemed impossible
to restore the parts to a shape which
would make the ticket presentable, the
traveler concluded to pocket' the loss,
and, purchase another ticket. This cir
cumstance makes it possible for us to
believe the story from . McMinnville, in
which it is stated that W. E. Martin
went out to his stable a few evenings
since with a lantern and a milk pail, to
milk his cow ; and while in a fit of ab
straction placed - the pail on the lam p
cord and milked the lantern full of the
lacteal fluid. It is siud that Martin's
wife discovered the mistake, when he
returned to the kitchen with an empty
pail, and the lantern in a fix for the
dish pan .
No Blockade Here.. ' .
Some of our contemporaries are in
nocently spreading reports like this:
The Union Pacific railroad ha-i had a
hard time fighting- .the storn'i king the
past week. . The snow, was very heavy
in the mountains up the Columbia and
at one time six trains were stalled at The
Dalles, waiting for the rotary snow plow
to open the road to Portland for them."
There has been no blockade at any point
in the county' of Wasco. Neither at The
Dalles, Hood River, nor Cascade Locks.
All the difficulties of obstruction' have
occurred in Multnomah county, within
from 18 to 40 miles of Portland. Please
make a note of this fact. The Dalles is
all sunshine roses and chrysanthemums.

Gov. Pennoyer is again brought prom
inently before the Nation because of an
alleged controversy with President-elect
Cleveland." Gov. Pennoyer said last
evening that: "The assertion that I, at
any time, attempted to dictate to Mr.
Cleveland in regard to silver or an v other
matter, is entirely without foundation.
I have had no correspondence, in any
manner, for more than four years, with
Mr. Cleveland, and I would never think
jf attempting to convert him to any
democratic policy or doctrine, as I con
sider him a mugwump and a plutocrat
past all redemption." He does not
deny having stated that : "The imper
tinent interference of the president-elect
with the selection of 'a 'United States
senator from New York is both unprece
dented and alarming. If the New York
democracy bows to' snch, dictation, it
will Indicate that Mr. Cleveland has not
only become the boss of his party, but
the czar of the Nation."
