who patronize outside industries in

have the interests of tbe town at heart
should not deal with those who bestow
their patronage outside of Eugene

The rain of which we got only a
prinkle Saturday, was much heavier in
the country both to the north and south
of ua. In Klicaitat valley quite a shower
fell, and commencing a few miles south
of The Dalles the rain was heavy enough
to be of substantial benefit. Out at
Tygb and Bake Oven there was balf an
inch, and at other points one of the
showers dropped that much. It will
prove of great benefit to the crops, and
especially to the range grass.

. The Regulator met with an accident
this morning when just ready to pull
out that prevented her making her run
today. Steam had been turned on and
the wheel was' being revolved slowly
when the throttle valve gave way. It
was at first thought it could be repaired
o she could leave at noon, but it could
not be done. A new valve will be up on
the train tonight, and etie will leave on
time tomorrow morning.

Floyd Harmon's bear, which has
heretofore furnished The Chronicle
several interesting items, will leave this
city forever today. He was sold Satur
day to the O. R. dc N., and .goes to Mea

Saturday Mr. Fish, Nick Sinnott,' and
two or three others went down into the
basement to put a collar and chain on
him, preparatory to turning him over to
his new owners. He showed fight, and
it was only after getting a chain around
his neck and choking him into submie
sion that the collar was placed on him
Yesterday evening he was taken to the
freight depot, and another circus was
had getting him "crated" for shipment,
In tbe melee he broke his chain, and
then the tun began and lasted three
hours before he was conquered. He was
finally driven into a corner, one end of
tbe crate was opened, and it was pushed
around him. He was dead game, and
was only whipped by superior numbers
and a variety of clubs. '
' Ihres Runaways.
The western end of the county reports
three runaways Saturday, all x attended
by personal injury. Dr. Morgan of
Hood River, was thrown out of his
buggy by its colliding against a tree and
sustained severe bruises. Robt. Hard
wick of MoBier, was thrown about ten
feet in the air coming down tbe Miler
hill in a wagon, upon which was bis
woodrack, his team becoming frightened
bile passing F. J. Creed's team by an
accident to tbe running gears: H. E,
Handlin of the same place, while return

lumber, was thrown out in some way

Ami So, They Married.
There was a quiet wedding in Port
land last Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock
that all the good people of The Dalles
are interested in hearing about. ' The
wedding took place at the residence of
Mrs. A. M. Williams, formerly of this
city, and the services were performed
by Rev. W. C. Curtis, of the Congrega
tional church of this citv. who went to
Portland for that particular purpose.
The contracting parties were Mr. Harry
French of this city and Miss Anna,
daughter of Mrs. A. M. Williams.
Tbe handsome rooms were tastefully
decorated, dogwood blossoms being the
material used for the purpose, and the
ceremony was performed in a bower
made of the blossom-covered boughs of
that beautiful tree. Only members of
the families and relatives were present.
The young couple came up on tbe
train Saturday night and took posses
sion of their residence on Fourth street.
Ihe groom is one of The Dalles' most
popular young gentleman, and it la a
matter of congratulation to all that he
wooed and won one of The Dalles' most
charming young ladies, and bronght her
back here to her old home. Their mar
ried life begins with the best wishes of
all who - know them, and that is every
body, and to tbe other congratulations
The Chboniclb adds its paternal bless
ing, and wishes them a pleasant voyage
over the sea, undisturbed by storms.
and ending only when old age shall
leave them at the other side, together.
Reply From Bndersby to W. Williams.
In your Saturday's issue of The
Chronicle we find a letter signed by W.
H. Williams of 8-Mile, which is mis
leading to the general public. He states
tbe picnic grounds have not been
changed from his grove to the Campbell
grove, and to prove that fact he assumes
he was chairman of tbe committee on
grounds, which, If true, is known only
to himself, as there was no chairman
appointed , by us. . Admitting he was
se It-appointed chairman, what has he
to do with holding the grounds, if the
other two, the majority of the commit'
tee, see fit to change the same for
grounds that suit them better.
He admits there has ' been some dis
sension but he fails to state it was all on
his part the dissension came. He foils
to state that at thecommencement here
was a committee of ladies appointed for
the selection of a May queen and decora
tion. Because they did not tarn over
to hita the selection and importation of
a May queen, since he was self-made
chairman of the ground committee, tbe
dissension arose. So we thought beet
to leave him, and that wisely, to his
own picnic and. grounds. All the barm
we wiph him now is the patronage of
tbe public, which he so richly deserves.
As we have tbe harmony class, commit
tee, the lady committee and the major
ity of. the committee on grounde, with
all the preparations they have been
working on for the last ' month, it re
mains to be seen who ie the opposition.

Tbe Cascade ReserTat-ion.
A correspondent writes from Bake
Oven desiring information as to the con
dition of the Cascades reservation, and
as to whether stockmen are forbidden to
pasture their stock thereon.
The language used by the president in
his proclamation is: "That there is
hereby reserved from entry or settlement
and set apart as a public reservation, all
those certain tracts, etc."
It will be seen from this that tbe lands
are only withheld from entry or settle
ment. There ' is nothing mentioned
concerning the use of tbe land for graz
ing or other purposes, and no intimation
that citizens are to keep off the grass.
There is no penalty provided for tres
passing upon the reservation, and in
fact the only object in the law was to
prevent the title to tbe lands passing
from the government. There is no
reason why stockmen should not utilize
the grass, and herd their flocks at will
anywhere they please on the reservation.
Keep off the grass only applied to Coxey.
,T. J. Wickens was among those up
from Hood River today.
Lieutenant Farber, who is In charge of
the Warm Springs reservation, arrived
in last night, accompanied by his wife
and little child. They went to Portland
today, it being their first trip to the
country west of The Dalles, and will
visit Vancouver before returning.
; Judze Bennett arrived home from
Vancouver vesterday. He was retained
to defend Anderson, accused of murder
ing a man named Bull, in Skamania
county, and made one of the efforts of
his life. His areamtnls to tbe jury
lasted five hours and a half, and the jury
Lwas out only thirty-eeven minutes until
it arrived at a verdict ot acquittal.
