Friends and Patrons.
WE HAVE rather neglected our Advertising of late, not
because we had nothing to sell; but we had nothing
especially new to offer, and preferred to wait until we could
say something of interest. We are, and have been for some
time, busily engaged in placing our orders for Spring and
Summer Goods and feel justified in announcing that we
shall have the FINEST ASSORTMENT and the BEST
GOODS in all our dines, that has ever been seen in The
Dalles. We have secured, some : genuine novelties in the
, Pry Goods Department, and : the : ladies will certainly con
sult their best interests by deferring their purchases until
After their arrival,-of which we shall give you due notice.
Keep both eyes on this space and we will certainly surprise
you, not only with the goods, but the prices at which we
shall sell them. We mean business and propose to have
your patronage, if LOW PRICES and the BEST
GOODS will accomplish it. Yours Respectfully,
Newsy Letter From Oar liee-alar Cor
Antelope, Feb. 18, 1893.
To the Dal !es Chronicle.
1 The young people had a fine time" on
the 14th at the masquerade ball.
Every body is pleased with the pros
pect for crops and grass the coming year.
Rev. Rawlins of Fossil is holding
religious services here with good results.
Antelope now prides itself on having
the finest school house in the country
outside of The Dalles. We are very
proud of it.
We have organized a body of A N.
Workmen here with Pierce Kinsey as
Master Workman, and will have a
Masonic lodge as soon as a suitable hatl
is constructed, which will be in early
The morals of the town are improving
very fast, and from the number of for
mer drinkers that are now wearing
white ribbons, it is possible that some
body may -have trouble to- get their
liquor license renewed.
Antelope people are pleased that win
ter is a thing of .,the past., The snow
only lays where it was drifted deep and
will soon be gone. The weather has
been warm for the last two days and
this evening it is raining very hard, with
good prospects of continuing all night.
Hay was almost all fed out before the
thaw came; but there is very little loss
in stock. Almost all the loss that there
will be is in cattle that were not fed.
Stragglers on the range, or the most of
them are lost. They amount to perhaps
10 per cent, of the whole amount of
cattle in the country.
If we get the bill passed creating Stock
man county (and no doubt wo will), we
will be a county seat and be doing busi
ness at home very soon. While we like
The Dalles, and its people too, it is too
far away for ns to have to go to do our
county business, and we are often
slighted and neglected on account of the
distance that we are away from the
county seat. One instance: People for
ten miles around came in to get their
mail, anxious to hear the news in gen
eral and especially what the legislature
was doing about the new. county, .and
the stage arrived on time. The roads
are reasonably good, but the stage
brought no paper mail, and when asked
by the postmaster why he did not bring
the paper bag, he said he had two pas
sengers and couldn't bring . the papers.
Now imagine how we people, who take
Tbk Chronicle and the Oregonian felt
going home without either one. Now if
Antelope was a county seat we would
have got the papers all right, and this is
only one instance Of many where our
interest is neglected.
Any one caught fishing or with trout
in their possession before the first day of
(vpril .will be prosecuted to the fullest
;xtent of the law, and those parties who
lave been catching fish in Mill -creek
lad better take heed, and govern "them
feelves accordingly. - By order of '
-Thb Rod and Gcx Club.
Important to Taxpayers.
Taxpayers will please take notice that
the city council have by express, order
instructed the undersigned to proceed
and collect all delinquent taxes by levy
and sale, and only immediate.attention
will avoid the payment of expenses of
levy and advertising. Dan Maloney,
dw w City Marshal.
Hatters at the Cascades.
Day brothers arrived at the Cascades
last night, and today busied themselves
in securing the right of way for a tram
way from the quarry to the works. The
river has still some floating ice in it,
and below the cascades it is yet packed,
but by tomorrow noon it is thought
there will be none. Everything is fast
being put in readiness to commence
work as soon as it can profitably be done.
Bant a Blood Vessel.
Mr. Aug. Buchler lost one of his fine
bay horses today. He fed it this morn
ing, as usual, and returning to the sta
ble, a few minutes later, found it rapidly
bleeding to death. The animal had
burst a blood vessel, as will occasionally
happen from no cause that can be fore
seen. The loss is quite severe, as the
horse was a valuable one and well known
about town. '
Mr. W. L. Ward, of 15-Mile, is in the
Mrs, J. H. Cradlebaugh of Hood River,
is in the city today.
Hon. E. N. Chandler left on the 4 :20
p. m. passenger to attend a meeting of
the O. N. G., at head quarters on a
Hon. Polk Mays of Wallowa took his
leave of friends and relations today for
his home. He proved to be one of the
most useful members of the legislature
from Eastern Oregon.
Misses Flora and Alice Mulligan left
on the morning train for Portland.
After spending a few days there and
with iiiemis on the Sound, thev will
return to their home in Missoula, Mont.

The following letter was received this
week by County Treasurer H. Halstead,
says the Condon Globe, from Mr. W. B.
Blanton of Portland, a railroad magnate,
representing several millions of dollars.
As any of the proposed routes are feasi
ble, and can be built with but very lit
tle grading and no tunnelling, it ia safe
to predict that" within a few months the
iron horse ' will be snorting through
Gilliam's capital. We venture the as
sertion that it will be the best-paying
route in the west, for the length of it.
Portland, Or., Feb. 18, 1S93.
Hkbbebt Halstkad, Condon, Oregon :
Dear Sir : I have your letter of Jan. 31,
and thank you for your kind offer. My
object in writing was to obtain some in
formation in regard to the topography of
the country lying between your county
seat and some point on the line of the
Union Pacific railway,, from which a
railroad can be cheaply built. A party
of gentlemen whom I am trying to in
terest iu this enterprise would gladly go
into such a scheme, providing the county
would vote a subsidy suitable and the
expense will not be too great. What
point on the Union Pacific do you con
sider would be the easiest reached, and
through what counties would this line
run? What would be the traffic accru
ing to this line at the different seasons
of the year, and would there be traffic of
some kind during the whole year? I
understand that on or near, the John
Day river is a coal mine, undeveloped,
consisting of an endless supply. Do you
know anything about this, and would
this route be feasible? A good coal
mine, easily reached, would, in my
opinion, secure the road without a doubt,'
Could a road be built, without unreason
able expense, from Arlington, i Blalock,
Quinns, John Day, Squally Hook, Rufus,
Wallace, Grant, Dea Chutes or Celilo to
reach your village?- I know very little
about the country in question, and can
form only a poor opinion of it without
going over it. It occurs to me that we
might go up the DesChutes or John
Day rivers from some point between Ar
lington and Celilo, or could perhaps tap
the ' Heppner branch at some inter
mediate point, or from Heppner proper;
bat would much prefer to reach the
main line direct, if such is possible.
Would thank you for any information
yom may be able to give.
. . Yours truly,
' W. B. Blanton.

A MERRY PARTY.
Ir, Rinehart and
Wife Surprised - at
One of the pleasantest and most suc
cessful social events of the season took
place at the beautiful new residence of
Dr. Rinehart and wife last evening. It
was a surprise party, and was successful
because none of the' guests but the lead-i
ers, Mr. and Mrs. Morgan, knew where
they were destined to go, and pleasant
because, once arrived there, the large
party was entertained by the sweetest
music, the choicest viands, pleasant con
verse and witty repartee. " Mr. and Mrs.
Curtis had ; been detailed previously to
go and keep the doctor's family at home.
When the guests began trooping in
about 8 o'clock, the Doctor, whose pres
ence of mind never deserts him, bribed
his boys, four in number, to go to bed.'-
The ruse was not successful, however,
for when the music struck up they arose
without exception, donned their clothes,
and standing np. before the parental
tribunal, in solemn procession, each
said : "Here, papa, is the 10 cents yon
gave me, and, pTease, I want to stay
np." - '
The instrumental music was of unus
ual excellence. Mrs. Curtis, on the
piano, exhibited a remarkable dexter
ity and knowledge, as did, also, the
genial host, Dr. W. Rinehart. The solo
by Mrs. Will Condon was highly appre-.
ciated. A very pretty duet was played
by Dr. Rinehart and Mrs. Jos: Peters,
while a trio by Mrs. Will Condon, Mrs.
Bradshaw and Dr. Rinehart was excep
tionally fine. , -
Tater, refreshments were served, con
sisting of oysters, cake, sandwiches,
coffee and sweetmeats, to. which the
guests did ample justice. This depart
ment was under-the supervision of Mrs.
Morgan and Mrs. Patterson. The work
of collecting supplies was undertaken
by W. E. Garrettson, who must have
feared there would not be enough to go
around, but after luncheon, lo, there
were many basketfnls, both loaves and
The party met at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. Patterson, and comprised:

H Glenn, Mr and Mrs- R F Gibons,
