There is a man the printer loves.
And he la wondrous wise;
Whene'er he writes the printer man,
He dotteth all his i's.
And after he has dotted them
With carefulness and ease,
He punctuates each paragraph
And crosses all his t's.
Upon one side alone he writes,
And never rolls his leaves,
And from the man of ink a smile
And mark "insert" receives.

Inauguration in The Dalles.
It is doubtful if the ' ceremonies at
Washington were as enjoyable as that
participated in by a party of ladies at
Mrs. G. P. Morgan's. Though perhaps
not entirely in honor of the day, the
event was generally merrily discussed
and a count taken of the political views
of the party ; but all wished well to the
coming administration, eveaiif the ma
jority of votes would have been for the
Republican side. - After a dainty lunch
the party separated, expressing thanks
to the hostess for the pleasant after
noon. Those present were Mesdames
Wallace, D. M. French, Brooks, Garri

All Over a Lantern-
His honor, Justice Schutz, with a jury,
were busied yesterday afternoon in the
trial of an assault and battery case that
was brought up on a change of venue
from Mosier. The defendant, R. A.
Powers, was charged with asssaulting
and striking one Deitchmiller in an al
tercation over a lantern. Mr. Deitch
miller stated that he was knocked down
by the force of the blow and damaged in
the face. But the jury concluded, after
digesting all the evidence produced, that
it was a case of strike or get struck with
Mr. Powers, and accordingly brought in
a verdict of not guilty.

rHerbrlng Will Endeavor to Make
Up His I.obs.
The new advertisement of H. Her-
mg on the eecond page will repay a
careful perusal. He first quotes the
reports of The Dalles papers concerning
his recent suit in court, drawing there
from the deduction that be must sell
more goods than ever to recoup his loss,
and to accomplish this proposes to lower
prices to attract trade. There is good
business strategy in this maneuver in-
Jdicative of the Yankee, though one who
knows Mr. Herbing would assign to him,
last of all, a strain of that kind of blood.
I As regards his suit before the circuit
'court, he has the sympathy of all who
know the facts in the case. He was not
only defeated out of money, justly due
him for goods sold, but is out damages
and costs besides. This result is accom
plished through - some evolution of the
intricate machinery of American (Eng
lish) law, termed, for short, a technical
ity, whereby the most ridiculous abor
tion will issue from the female with the
scales and the handkerchief over her
eyes. The dot of an i or the cross of a
t on some irrelevant bit of paper has
more to do in determining a case nowa
days than a host of credible witnesses.
Mr. Herbring will recover his loss in
the natural course of business, but. he
may never again have the same respect
for justice, when entrusted to the tender
mercies of skilled lawyers.

Question as to Who Shall Pay for
Repairing a Sewer.
RESULT OF ERROR IN A DEED
The Establishment of a Board
Health Urged by Councilman
C. E. Haight.
The regular meeting of the council
convened last night at the city hall,
present Mayor Mays and Aldermen
Haight, Wood, Joles, Kreft and Lauer.
Mrs. W. N. Wiley's petitition ior a
reduction of $3,000 taxes was referred to
the judiciary committee.

The question of the" sewer between
Second and Third, and Madison and
Jefferson streets next came up. Here
the wooden sewer placed there years
ago, has rotted out, causing that part of
it beyond, one of terra cotta, to be value
less. The question arose as to what
property should be assessed to pay for
it. The mayor was of the opinion that
the equity of the case would affect only
those contiguous to the proposed re
repair, and in this he was sustained by
the council. A motion prevailed that
an ordinance be immediately drawn up
to provide for its repair, and an esti
mate made of its cost and that when the
council adjourn it should be till tonight,
so that there Will be no further delay, as
the question is important.
A petition from Mrs. Fish was read
asking for a rebate of taxes. Council
man Joles stated that the description in
the deed to the property in question read
so many chains from a certain pine tree
east, when it should read west, and that
a man hunted three weeks for her prop
erty once without success. The petition
Regular monthly reading of bills.
Mr. Haight then spoke of the expe
dience of organizing a board of health
for the better sanitary protection of our
citizens, especially in view of the prob
able advent of cholera. He said many
towns were already acting upon the
matter and so should The Dalles. He
pointed out places reeking with filth
and read an ordinance relating to its
prevention which had never been en
forced. He urged either its repeal or its
enforcement. Councilman Kreft, in con
firmation, told of other filthy alleys, one
of which he said was "knee deep." He
said that according to an ordinance, the
marshal was the proper officer to report
such cases ; the people owed a greater
duty in informing the marshal of such
places, when it would become his duty
to see that the provisions were enforced.
The mayor said that, as the hour was
growing late, the subject would come up
the following evening for further discus

The Dalles, Or., March 3, 1893.
Notice is hereby given that there will
be a stockholders' meeting of The Dalles,
Portland & Astoria Navigation Co. at
The Chronicle hall on Tuesday,' April
4th, 1893, at 2 o'clock p. m. for the pur
pose of electing seven directors, and
transacting such other business as may
properly come before said meeting.
By order of the President.
td S. L. Beooks, Sec'y.
An Important Ordinance.
"No person shall permit to accumulate
in any yard any stagnant water, refuse,
vegetables, decaying substance, garbage,
filth of any kind, nor suffer such yard or
ot to remain in such a condition as to
cause an offensive odor, or thereby to
become a public nuisance. Any one
shall be fined, upon conviction, not less
than $10 nor more than $100, or impris
onment in the county jail not less than
five nor more than thirty days."
The above is the skeleton of an ordi
nance which, if enforced, might save the
lives of several hundred of our citizens
in the event of the appearance of cholera
this eummer. It is probable that the
council will tonight appoint a board of
health, as the discussion at last night's
session led up to that end, the lateness
Of the hour preventing further discus
sion. If this is done, the city should be
turned over to them in as good condition
as possible. The marshal is authorized
to enforce the ordinance, upon the
proper- complaint of any person; but
there has been manifest a reluctance or
carelessness on the - part of citizens,
which is wrong. There Would be little
sickness in The Dalles if there was no
pollution to favor it.
All Dalles City warrants registered
prior to May 1, 1891, will be paid if
presented at my office. Interest ceases
from and after this date.
