The bonds which the city has just
caused to be issued, are now bving signed
by Mayor Frank Menetee, and Recorder
Douglas S. Dufar. . They are of pretty
design and well lithographed. - As there
are 114 bonds and fifty coupons to each
bond, all of which have to be sinned by
the mayor and . recorder, it necessitates
5814 signatures by each gentleman. If
this were to be a regular thing the mayor
j would probably akan increase in salary
will soon start people for the seashore
and mountains. . Several camping parties
a're now being arranged. Griff Williams,
Charlie Michelbaeh and Wm. Marders
left on the Regulator this morning for a
month's banting and fishing near Tront
Lake, and many more people will have
their outing near - Mt. Adams. The
jaunt of the Mazamas promises to be an
elaborate affair and transportation has
been arranged for several hundred. ex
cursionists. ' '
The city election occurs on June 17th.
The election of mayor will be the im
portant item, as the appointment of the
recorder and marshal are now placed in
his hands. This makes it very essential
that a good man be chosen to occupy the
highest office in the g ft of the city.
While it decreases tbe number of officers
to be voted for, tbe interest in tbe elec
tion will in no wise be diminiwhed.
However, at this time, very little is said
regarding the prospective candidates, but
there is abundanttime between now and
the 17th to get op an exciting contest.

THE ORCHESTRA EXCURSION.
lloonllght Trip Last Night The Boys
Outdo Themselves la Giving Tbelr .
G masts m Good Time.
When Captain Waud gave the signal
to back the Regulator away from the
dock last evening, there started as merry
a party of excursionists as ever left The
Dalles. The upper deck . was crowded
with pleasure-seekers, while on the
wharf those who couldn't go gave the
steamer and its prrcious load a parting
cheer, and wished them a happy night.
The moon had not yet risen, but the
river was as quiet as a mill pond. The
orchestra, stationed in the forward part
of the boat, made sweet music while the
steamer swung -.slowly out into the
stream and pointed her bow towards
In the cabin and on tbe promenade
deck the excursionists soon arranged
themselves. The young people gath
ered into groups, and the customary old-
time songs, which long ago had earned a
pension, were sung; but when every
body is in good humor it doesn't matter
much how eld the songs are, or how
badly they are sung. The orchestra
stationed themselves in the dining cabin
and gave a concert to an eager andience.
As each piece was finished the listeners
wanted another one, which tbe musi
cians good naturedly gave.
Down past Crate's Point into the
channel between the high, mountains
this side of Lyle the steamer passed.
Soon the Klickitat river was left behind,
and the little- village of Mosier was
pointed out in the iiatance. The moon
was beginning to rise, and the river and
its banks were lit up, so that the places
along the shore were clearly seen. Tbe
prettiest part of the trip was just as the
boat reached White Salmon, and the
mountains for a time lost their rugged
character, and a break in tbe bills on
both sides the river showed the outlets
of fertile valleys, whose products are
famed the world over. '
' The water was at such a height that the
Regulator steamed into Hood River and
landed close to the railroad depot. . The
water is getting at a stage when this
cannot be done much longer, and when
it ceases a great convenience to the
people of the town will be missed
The usnal portion of the population
were assembled on the shore to greet the
excursionists and watch the unusual
spectacle of a steamboat landing there at
that hour of the night. As soon as the
gang plank was out the crowd hastened
to the armory, where tht, dance was to
begiven. The streets of Hood River
were quiet enough before the crowd
came, but tbe merry shouts of ' tbe
Dallesites and beat of drams soon broke
all to pieces any previous stillness. Tbe
armory is a large, commodious building
and made the finest kind of a'place for
dancing. Tbe floor bad been placed in
good condition and was soon occupied by
the dancers. For nearly two boars the
dancing kept cp and though the night
was warm there were very few who sat
out the dances. Not many people from
Hood River were present, for which wa

Eastern Oregon can give. Those from
the town who were there praised the
boys very highly. A few minutes before

played and that part of the entertain
When the boat passed oat of Hood
River tbe moon had ri-en in full glory
and the water reflected its goldon path.
The--night was clear and not a ripple
upon the river's placid surface. The ex-
carsionistshad been rather quiet on the
down trip, but now the fun began. Tbe
band quickly responded to a request for
music and all the favorites were played.
Out on the deck were gathered most of
the passengers, as tbere was no wiud to
drive them inside. - An ' impromptu
Salvation Army 'band, gotten op on
short notice, played the airs made so
familiar to the people of The Dalles dar
ing the past year. : It was close to 11
o'clock when the Regulator left Hood
River and at five minutes past one the
lines were made fast to the .dock at The
Dalles and this pleasant excursion was

SHOOTING AT MOSIER.
A. Power Haa Trouble witta O. L..
FieldsShooting la tbe Outcome.
A little after noon Fridny R. A. Power,
the storekeeper at Mosier, shot O. L.
Field through the right leg and himself
reaeived severe' injuries in the face.
The trouble arose over some wood, which
the Fields were piling in the Mosier
yard, and about which Power and Fields
had had dealings. The reports differ as
to just exactly what occurred ; but dur
ing tbo scuffle . that ensued Power re
ceived a bad wound in the face from a
rock and O. L. Fields was seriously
wounded in the leg.
The Chronicle is not in a position to
judge of the merits of the quarrel, which
will have to be determined by the pre
liminary examination. Power came to
town yesterday to ' have his wound
dressed. How badly Fields is injured is
not known, but it is not believed he is
dangerously hurt. A warrant has been
issued for'Power's arrest, and tbe exam
ination 'will bo held at once.
