editor of the New York Tribune, is to
speak in The Dalles Friday, May 25th,
at 7 :30 p. m. Early notice of the event
is given that all at a distance who may
wish to attend may so arrange for that
end. As there is not a hall in town
capable of holding one-half of the peo
ple who will wish to hear one of Amer
ica's most talented writers and speakers,
the meeting will most probably be held
in the open air.
The Puget Sound sardines put up by
Joseph Cates, at Fort Townsend, won
Bach high encomiums at the'world's fair
banquet that he will probably engage
quite extensively in preparing them for
market with the dpening of the season
in the near future. They were tested
last week beside the French sardines .by
officers of the Albatross, and so
thoroughly pleased were they, that had
a Bupply been obtainable, " the entire
fleet would have added them to their

say that acres and acres of strawberries
will probably rot on the ground. The
crop will be immense, and dealers say
that berries will be so cheap that they
cannot be handled with profit.

The reports from the interior and near
this city contradict the story going the
rounds that the fruit crop is destroyed
in this part of Eastern Oregon, by ..the
lateV frosts. The contrary is a fact, as
we are reliably informed that the early
and late fruits are in first class condi
tion. Peaches and cherries are as large
as hazel-nuts and are growing finely.
Up to the present time . the salmon
run has not commenced, so to speak
Yesterday was the first day at the Cas
cades that any fish were caught, and it
is reported that indications point to
brisk run tor the next few days. Old
fishermen on the river are free to attrib

merous seals, which are known, to be
very destructive and persistent enemies
to the salmon.

A Very Fine Play Soon to JBe Presented
In The Dalles.
Tuesday, May 15th has been decided
upon as the date for the production of
the drama "Enlisted for the War" by
the Home Dramatic Club, the proceeds
of which are to be given to the Young
Women's Christian Temperance Union
tor charitable purposes. Being con
scious of the noble work which this
society has been engaged in among the
poor of our city during the past winter
and of the many calls for assistance at
present, the club are more than anxious
to give them all the financial aid possible,
and to that end ask that every citizen of
The Dalles, which has ever been noted
for its charitable population, feel it a
personal duty to aid in this effort.
While the club give their services freely,
and expect to do their very best to en
tertain yon, they feel that this is .your
opportunity to show your willingness to
co-operate and make it a financial suc
But if charity was eliminated from the
object of the entertainment entirely, it
would yet stand as an amusement fea
ture fully worthy of the patronage of
anyone who delights, in entertainments
of this nature. The Dalles has dramatic
talent, as it has musical talent, of a high
order, and some really artistic acting
from a player's standpoint is confidently
predicted. As regards the play itself,
it is a spirited production, with a well
arranged plot, and the interest increases
to the close. Fine pathos and comedy
are characteristic of the play, and as a
whole it is fascinating to all listeners.
Sand Takes the Place of Water.
Salaries Reduced and some
The carrying capacity of the clouds,
which has been often remarked by
philosophers, is fully equaled by flow
ing water, if we are to take as evidence
the sand which has been lodged in the
walls in the basement of the Uma
tilla house during- high water. ' Nine
years ago this summer the river rose six
feet higher than it has at any timefince,
coming up to within a very few feet of
the Umatilla house floor. As it" receded
it filled the space, boarded up on each
side of 12x12 stud-ling, with sand filled
it completely and as compactly ' as if it
had been thrown in with shovels and
packed. It is' 'remarkable that as the
water fell, it left in its place an equal
quantity of this sand, and shows the re
markable carrying capacity of the river

Mayor Kreft called the city council to
order shortly after 8 o'clock last evening,
present Councilmen Butts, Lauer, Joles
and Hudson. Messrs. Crowe and Eshel
nian came in late.' .
" A remonstrance was read from prop
erty owners on Eighth street, petition
ing against' laying a sidewalk from
Union to Liberty on said street. On
motion of Aid. Butts it was referred to
committee on streets and public pro
perty. A legal opinion was then read from
Dufur & Menefee in relation to the steers
owned by Mr. Harmon, one of which "vas
killed and one impounded and sold.
The opinion is in effect that the city is
not to be held responsible for the value,
of the vicious steer which was running
at large and endangering life; and if the
proceeds left from costs are returned to
- . rT ... ... .
jir. .aarmon oi me one soia, lie nas no
just claim against the city. The opinion
was received and placed on file.
Under reports of committees, Mr.
Butts called for the report of the "duck
pond" near the depot. Mr. Hudson said
he had conferred with the agent several
times about it, who had invariably
promised to have it fixed, but as nothing
bad yet been done, he believed the
matter should go to the marshal, as be
had gone to the end of his rope. It ap
pearing from the remarks of Messrs.
Joles and Lauer that the cause of the
water was due to a bursted water pipe,
the matter was dropped.
Aid. Eshelman complained about a
filthy alley between Third and Fourth
streets, which was brought to his atten
tion by Mr. Garretson, and the matter
was referred to the street commissioner
with proper instructions.
The reports of officers were then read
and accepted. No report having been
made by the marshal, he was ordered to
make out one and present at next nieet-ing.
A letter was read from Mr. Houghton,
holding Borne Dalles City water bonds,
requesting payment- of interest at a
designated place, and was so ordered
The salary ordinance was then placed
on its final passage and passed, Aid
Butts and Lauer voting no, and Aid
Eshelman, Crowe, Joles and Hudson
voting aye. This is what is termed a
horizontal" cut, and affects every city
officer. By it the recorder and mashal
are reduced from $100 to $75 each, The
recorder arose and wanted a citv at
torney elected, but the mayor declared
him out of order.
A special ordinance was next passed
transferring moneys to specified funds
A resolution was then read and car
ried, authorizing the recorder to adver
tise the docket of city liens in relation
the assessments for the construction of
the Lincoln street sewer.-

The bill of Sinnott & Fish for 195
meals for prisoners was laid on the table
until an. -itemized statement was pre
sented. The bili provoked much dis
cussion, in which, the subject was
brought np that the city prisoners do
not work in return for meals; while the
city emplovs men, paying regular wages.
Considerable dissatisfaction was appar
ent that the 6treet commissioner did not
attend the council meetings. A motion
was made by Aid. Crowe that the street
commissioner be instructed to work the
prisoners, and if they refused, put them
on a oreaa ana water diet until tnev

On motion of Aid. Hudson, adjourned

Australians Kuiijf rating.
Australia is greatly perturbed over
the emigration movement in Paraguay.
The government of Paraguay has given
nearly five hundred thousand acres of
good land for settlement to Australian
colonists, or others of suitable stand
ing in ' means and character who join
them, and there is an expectation that
ten thousand persons may settle on the
lands. All who go from old to -new
Australia are teetotalers and have a
considerable amount saved, and the
loss of a few thousand men of that
stamp is a serious . matter. . South
Australia has, therefore, passed a vil
lage settlement act, under jvhich those
who want to cultivate land are very
favorably dealt with. Then comes the
question whether the Australian land
is as good as - that, in Paraguay, and it
is not. But there are disadvantages
there as well.
