Among the social events of the season r
none has been more enjoyable than was f'
the Cobweb party given last evening by P
Mrs. w . a. Myers, assisted Dy Mrs. Dr.
Eshelman and Miss Lown, in honor of
the college boys now at home for the
holidays. The principal features of the
eveninz were the cobweb and the music
by the Mandolin and Guitar clnb.f The
guests were somewhat surprised on ar
riving to find the home of Mrs. Myers sol
completely filled with "cobwebs" than
it was necessary to at once commence!
work to remove them ; ' and each one
finding one end of a thread of the web
labored diligently to clear it from
large cobweb which ingeniously devised
and constructed under the supervision
of Miss Lown, was a gigantic represent
ation of a spider's home, composed of
long strings wound about the rooms,
furniture, electroliers, and tangled to
gether in almost inextricable confusion.
Many hands made light work and an
hour of earnest effort completely demol
ished the huge entanglement and each
one had secured the prize fastened to
the end of their string. Then a delicious
collation waa served . on small tables
distributed throughout the rooms.
After the lunch singing and music by
the Mandolin and Guitar club occupied
the remainder of the evening. Those)
present were : Rose, Annette and Myrtle!

"You can get no appropriation from
the legislature for a portage road at the
dalles," said a gentleman from Portland
to a gentleman of The Dalles, in The
Umatilla dining ' room yesterday.
Astonished at the expression our Dalles
city man inquired, "Why not?" "Be
cause, I will tell you, confidentially,"
said the Portland gentleman, "We don't
want such useless expenditures of money
by the people. ' In Portland we have bor
rowed something like $20,000,000 for
Portland commissions the past few
years, and are putting in water works,
bridges, improving rivers, and building
public buildings for future generations
to pay for. We expect to ask for the
privilege , of further indebtedness, to
build another bridge for Albina, and
possibly a further privilege for comple
tion of our city hall and water works.
and such little things as the dalles por
tage should take care of themselves in
the same way."
This is a Portland view of the matter.
How can Portland ignore the justice of a
measure to open up to them a. region
such as the Inland Empire is to them ;
and has been for the past thirty 3'ears?
If the measure is defeated by Portland
influence this time, it is. barely possible
that Portland may never again 'be
asked for any favor, or reciprocity in
business from the Inland Empire.
The Itnrlington Coming.
It-is currently rumored in Portland
railway circles that within two yeara
trains will be running over the Chicago,
Burlington &.Quncy road into Portland.
The road is graded from Merino, Wyo.,
to the Idaho line, and will be extended
o Boise next year. ' From Boise the
'bad' will run west to the Snake river,
where a spur will be run up to connect
with the Hunt system in Washington,
while the main line will run west and
connect with the Oregon Pacific. The
Burlington's coming to the coast does
net depend, however, upon its purchase
of the Oregon Pacific. If the Burling-
ton does not purchase the Hunt system
it will be built through Washington,
connecting with the Tacoma, Lake Park
and Columbia river surveys for the ex
tension of which are now being made in
the Cascade mountains. This line is
considered a Burlington interest and
will give that road an outlet to P6get
Sound. In Goldendale, they have high
hopes, according to the Sentinel, which
says: "Herman ;Beal, "the locater for
the defunct Hunt system, is in the em
ploy of the Burlington and will surely
remember this county, and the famous
Klickitat pass which was on his his
favorite route from Wallula to Van
couver. This is the best chance Klicki
tat now has for a road. If the Burling
ton pushes its way through to the sound
Klickitat will quite likely secure a road.
Everything looks favorable" now
for a road through the country
in the near future." The Buffalo
Courier of the 31st says : "It is pre-:
dieted that in 1894 the Burlington will
be running trains Into Portland, Oregon.
The road is now graded from Marion,
Wyoming, to the Idaho line, and will be
extended to Boise. From Boise the
road will run west to Snake river, where
a spur will be run up to connect with
the Hunt system in Washington, while
the main line will run west and connect
with the Oregon Pacific."
The state board of equalization have
increased the assessed valuation of the
thirty-one counties in the state from
$1951304,770 to $228,398,677, a clean raise
of $32,793,907. Wasco county comes in
for her share of the income to the
amount of $521,879, and Sherman county
to the amount of $82,085. These are
lesa the deductions for indebtedness and
exemptions. ' Multnomah county has
been subject to the greatest raise, which
Is $20,847,737, over her assessment made
by Mr. Sears, the county assessor. This
equalization will be the source of a great
deal of kicking and censure of the equal
ization board, especially bo on the as
sessment at face value of mortgages.
The A. F. O. T. B. O. U., club will
this evening complete the round of New
Year's calls which they were unable to
accomplish Monday. All are glad to
see the boys, for with the melody which
accompanies them, they entertain and
gladden where ever they go.

DEATH OF W. S. LADD.
The Celebrated Pioneer Banker of
Oregon at Itest.
Special to The Chiionicle.J
Portland, Jau. 6. Mr. William S.
Ladd, the pioneer banker of Pregtn,
died at his residence in this city at 9 :10
a. m., today after a very brief illness.
Mr. Ladd has been one of the most pop
ular men on the whole Pacific coast,, and
it is rare indeed to find a man of such
wide influence in the financial world so
highly esteemed as he has been by all'
his acquaintances, rich and poor alike,
for all of whom he had good counsel and
cheering words. He never oppressed
anybody, is the common expression to
day ; on the other hand his action has
liberally sustained many a weak and
faltering enterprise. , "
Mr. Ladd was born in Holland, Vt,
Oct. 10th, 1826. His ancestors came to
America in 1628. ' He came to Oregon
via. the Isthmus in 1S5I. In . 1854, he
married Miss Caroline A. Elliott of New
Hampshire. In 1859, in company with
C. E. Tilton he established the bank of
Ladd & Til ton i n Portl and . The partnef
ship was dissolved in 1880 with bills re
ceivable amounting to $2,500,000. He
had large interests in the Oregon Iron
and Steel Co., O. R. and N.
Co., and other enterprises of
which Oregon is proud His family is
W. M. Ladd, a member of the bank
firm ; Chas. Elliott Ladd, Mrs. Henry

His wife has ideas of her own.
A few days ago she told Charlie at
"Reciprocity is a great thing."
"When did you find that out?" asked
"A lady stepped on my dress today and
never offered a word of apology."
"Of course not," chuckled Charlie.
"But she smiled."
"Then I smiled. Yon see that smile
produced a smile in return." .
"A man would have smiled, too, under
the circumstances," remarked Charlie.
"That was reciprocity," said Mrs.
Charlie, ignoring the remark. . .
."Almost as satisfactory as if you had
slapped each other."
And she answered in a dreamy voice:
"Almost." Detroit Free Press.

these effects was to remove the cause,
that human nature being the same, the
same results might be looked for in-nearly
all cases. So confident was he that the
