The Are XlgUt Question Discussed and
an Agreement Beached.
A special meeting of the city council
waa held last night to consider the arc
light question and other matters.' There
were present Acting-Mayor Eshelman
and Councilmen Butts, Lauer, Crowe,
The matter of the arc lights was con
sidered with the arrival of Mr- Virgil
Bolton, manager for the company. He
stated that a committee of councilmen
had submitted a proposition to him of
$11 per light. This he was not inclined
to concede because the margin of profit
would be very small. It costs about $9
to maintain each light, figuring' npon a
basis of regular expenditures, and when
other details of expenses, constantly oc
curring, are considered, he could not
figure upon a margin of $2, which is a
very small one, and stated that at $11
there would be nothing in it for the
company. He narrated that Mr. Rob
erts had tried to lessen the rates below
$12 some years ago and failed to make it
a success. . The last light placed by the
company cost $200 to put in and it
would be a long time before the com
pany got the mere cost back. He recog
nized, however, that times were hard
and the city badly in debt, and was will
ing to make as fair a concession as he
could. For this purpose he offered to
furnish the lights for $12 each, in any
number required, provided the company
could have a two years' contract from
the city. Mr. Hudson thought" the
proposition a very fair one and moved
for its acceptance. - Mr. Butts wanted
the question postponed until the regu
lar meeting, but was opposed by Crowe
and Hudson and t the . motion . carried.
The recorder was next instructed to
draw up a contract with the company
and present it at next meeting for ap
proval. "' " ' ' "u.
Mr. Crandall submitted Ms estimates
on the cost of repairing the jail. The
improvements contemplated aw very
thorough. There is, to be one large and
two small cells, all on the, south side of
the ball way. Partitions to be of dressed
2x4's, . spiked together. . The iron door
leaning to the jail yard will , be closed.
The water closet and wash" bowl will be
removed to the interior. The iron work
is to be of boiler iron with half-inch hole's
punched through. The corridor will be
15x15 feet. The old walls are to be lined
with 1-inch plank. The cost was
stated to be about $500. The report was
accepted, and the recorder instructed to
advertise for bids. :
Mr. Butts then moved 'that bids be
asked to lay 212 feet of sidewalk in the
Union street cut, and recorder wis in
structed to so , advertise. . Mr. Joles
wanted the sidewalk extended down to
Fifth street, the city to bear all the ex
pense, but Mr. Butts would not listen to
it as part of his motion, saying it would
delay the other. He believed there was
a way of condemning bad sidewalks and
fencing them out, but Mr. Joles' only re
ply was an ominous 'shake of the bead.
He has been through the sidewalk ordeal
before. . . '
Mr. Crandall then read a report con
cerning the "Elton?' grade from Fourth
street to the city limits, stating the num
ber of cubic yards of cuts and fills that
would have to be made, the grades, etc.,
but not the probable cost. The steepest
grade was 12 per cent, or one inclined
the same as the steepest part in the
Union street cut. After considerable
argument the recorder was instructed to
advertise said proposed improvement for
fourteen days, the property-owners to be
given to understand they were to pay for
it ' entirely, the city, to pay only for sur
veying. ' :
The Lincoln street sewer ordinance
was brought up in a new way ' by Mr.
Hudson, stating that the assessment of
Capt. McNulty for the same was illegal,
as he would not be benefitted thereby.
This' made a complicated state of affairs,
since the ordinance has already been
passed twice, the assessment made and
the property owners notified, and the
question was referred to a committee of
the whole at next regular meeting.
The next question, taken up was the
dog ordinance. After some discussion,
the recorder, was instructed to notify
owners of dogs that the taxes on them
must be paid by the 12th of May, or
the dogs wonld be impounded. Ad
The Lecture Tonight.
Mr. Lydell Baker will address the citi
zens of The Dalles at the court house at
8 o'clock this evening. It is not a
political lecture, and is purely historical.
No admission fee is charged, and it is
given merely , out of courtesy to the
many friends in The' Dalles, who know
the honorable gentleman and for whom
he has a strong regard. This lecture is
very fine and has been delivered but
once before in Oregon. Those who
know of the lecture and do not attend
will regret it tomorrow. ' No cost is at
tached, Mr. Baker stating that railway
transportation costs him nothing and he
would rather lecture than not. The
kindly spirit should be appreciated by a
full house. , The ChhoKicle is assured
he has . no ends to serve, other than a
pardonable ambition to give the people
the benefit of a good thing at his own
Diphtheria In Portland.
The . public schools of Hollidny Ad
dition, Portland, have been closed owing
to diphtheria, and charges have been
preferred against a physician there for
reporting cases of diphtheria as tonsili-
tis. The . Oregonlan undoubtedly refers
to Mr. E. B. McFarland in the following :
One case was that of a child who died,
and ' the death certificate,, signed by the
attending 'phy'sician'- and ' filed at the
health office, alleged that death was due
to tonsilitis. The -body was shipped to
The Dalles for burial, and the funeral
was a public one. Dr. Wheeler visited
another child in the same family, al
leged to be suffering from tonsilitis, and
found a serious case of diphtheria. He
at once had the patient isolated, and
took every precaution to prevent spread
of the disease."

aged 17 months.
; Some of the young friends of Mrs. C.
L. Phillips found out yesterday was her
birthday, and, knowing where they are
always welcome and have a jolly time,
determined to . surprise her. Accord
ingly last evening, while she and Mr.
Phillips were enjoying a quiet chat, they
beard the sound of . voices coming
nearer, which .soon changed into a sere
nade. 'Twas not long before they were
invited in and bad possession of - the
house, which stands for a good time were
such a jolly crowd is concerned. '" Mrs.
Phillips declared that, like all men, C.
L. "could not keep a secret," and by
his actions she imagined something was
going On; while he still insists she was
surprised. But there's nothing so sur
prising as a genuine surprise.
The Independent Workers.
Probably the largest membership of
any lodge of any order instituted in The
Dalles was the new I. O. G. T. lodge of
the Independent Workers which waa
duly instituted by State Deputy R. . L.
Mcintosh of Frazier Lodge at 3-Mile.
He was assisted in this work by repre
sentatives from Frazier and The Dalles
lodges. ' "
Yes, an enthusiastic lodge of-sixty-
eight members was instituted to do
valiant work along the temperance line.
- .The following excellent list of officers
were elected to serve for the remainder
of the term. "
Thomas Joles, Lodge Deputy ; C. H.
Brown', Chief Templar ; Mrs. C. Frazier,
Vice Templar; Miss Marion Kennedy.,
Chaplain ; A. A. Urquhart, Secretary ;
E. Korter, F. Secretary; B. G. Wagle,
Treas ; -Dave 'Lemmerson, Marshal ; B.
C. Millard, Guard ; George Mann, Sen
The members are delighted with this
grand showing ; and we received many
congratulations and best wishes for bur
success. " Many more names are pro
posed and' before the flowers bloom . in
May there is little doubt but the mem
bership will have reached one hundred.
