A bay team belonging to the Winans
Bros, and engaged in hauling a wagon
loaded with lumber, took it into their
heads this morning to take a run. They
started from some place in the East End
and came down Second street as though
Jehu himself was urging them. Just in
front of Mays & Crowe's something de
flected them from their course and un
like the populists, they left the middle of
the road. The lumber had, most of it,
been disposed of regardless of cost, on
the way down, and the outfit was run-
running in ballast. When their course
was changed they were unable to make
the circle and turn up Federal street, so
they compromised by running into the
dead wall of the Max Vogt building, and
coming to a full stop. The damage was

"Nevada, or The Lost Mine" drew one
of the largest andiences ever gathered in
The Dalles. The bouse was well filled,
and had it not been that the grippe has
dozens of victims in the city that kept
other dozens from attending, there
would not have been standing room.
The Dalles is justly proud of its local
dramatic club, and never fails to show
Its appreciation of its home talent. The
stage : was well fitted up and the play,
which is interesting from first to last,
ran smoothly throughout. It is difficult
to comment upon the individual char
acters, for we feel that did we say all
the words of praise the acting deserved,
that we would be charged with dealing
in flattery, yet we cannot forego a brief
review of the characters.
The play hinges upon "Nevada," an
old miner,- who, after discovering a rich
gold mine, is struck on the bead by a
rock falling from the roof of the tunnel,
and although be gets back to camp, he
is mentally deranged, and cannot again
find his mine. On this foundation
built the balance of ' the story.
Nevada's" wife came from the East to
seek him, but reaching the cabin of
'Vermont," an old miner, dies, leaving
with him her little girl, who grows up
the pride of the camp, is sent off to
school by "Vermont," returns, bringing
her teacher, "Miss Agnes Fairlee," with
her. "Moselle," the waif, falls in love
with "Dandv Dick," a young miner, who
left home under a cloud, and "Agnes
Fairlee" goes "gone" on "Tom Carew."
"Silas Steele," a missionary of health,
traveling for "Busted's Balm," turns
out to be a son of "Vermont," and with
"Jube," a negro, and '.'Win Kye," a
Chinaman, assists in uncovering the
villainies of "Jerden," the detective,
who is the heavy villain of the play.
These with "Mother Merton," who was
a mother to. "Moselle," complete the
cast of characters.
The part of "Nevada" was taken by
Mr. Harry Lonsdale and taken well.
though it was the most difficult part of
the play. Mr. Nolan as "Vermont1
showed a thorough understanding of the
character, and looked and acted the old
time miner to perfection. "Tom
Carew" was another difficult part that
was well taken by Mr. N. Kinnott, and
"Dandy Dick," by R. Sinnott, was
equally well played. "Silas Steele" was
the easiest part of the whole play, that
is, it was easiest to Johnny Hampshire
to whom all parts are easy. Mr. Fred
Wilson had the thankless part of the
play, that of the black-bearded villain
and as nine-tenths of the audience felt
like getting up on stage and kicking
him, it is fair to presume that he acted
his part well enough. Mr. Hartnett, the
negro miner, and Charley Heppner as
"Win Kye," the ubiquitous Chinaman
were always around at the right time to
discover just the things necessary to the
unfolding of the plot. '"The latter gave a
Chinese song that was heartily encored
We have forborne mentioning the
ladies who took part in the play until
last, because the best of a feast, literary
or otherwise, comes in the dessert"
Mrs. G. C. Blakeley as "Mother Mer
ton," had but little to do, but that little
was done thoroughly. Miss Rose Michell
made a charming little "Moselle," and
Won a warm spot in the hearts of the
audience at once, which she held to the
last ; and Miss Myrtle Michell took the
part of ' "Agnes Fairlee" in fine shape.
The play was a success in every way,
yielding, besides the two hours' pleas
ure, the sum of $172.75 gross. The
worst part of the play was, that while
the larger portion of the audience was
present at 8 o'clock, at which- time the
curtain was supposed to raise, there
were others who came straggling in un
The music was furnished by the Or
chestral Union, and that leaves nothing
more to be said on that score, except
that each number brought forth hearty
The second scene, representing the
interior of a log cabin, was the handi
work of the artist, Mr. Home, and it was
a realistic bit of work, too.
