In Honor of frank J. Sinnett.
The large residence of Mr. N. B. Sin
nott, on Fourth street, was the scene of
much youthful gaiety last evening.
Mrs. Sinnott had invited a large number
of young people to meet her nephew,
Mr. Frank J. Sinnott of Portland, who
is visiting in The Dalles. The house is
an excellent one for entertaining, and
the efforts of tbe hostess and her daugh
ter, Mrs. Fish, to make their guests feel
at ease were happily successful, and
the hours sped away so quickly that
midnight came and went before any one
realized that it was getting late.
The early part of the evening T was
pent in conversation and social games,
(after which the prizes were awarded to
he successful and unsuccessful contest
ants. Mr. G. W. Phelps was the fortu-
ate winner of the first prize, while Miss
'redden and Mr. Fritz W. Wilson, after
desperate struggle, captured the booby
This was tbe firBt of the summer par
ties, and if the "social season is to be
judged by the event of last night, the
summer will be a very pleasant one to
the young people of The Dalles. The
young ladies, all dressed in light colors,
looked especially bewitching.
After same dainty refreshments,
served at small tables, the guests were
treated to musical ' selections, all of
which were very well rendered.- Mr.
G. W. Crossen sang a solo, "Answered,"
after which Mr. N. J. Sinnott favored
the audience with the selection "I Fear
No Foe in Shining Armor." ; Miss
Myrtle Michell rendered the pretty song
The Sweetest. Story Ever Told.", Mr.
Frank Sinnott sang the piece entitled
Afterwards." ' V
At a late hour the party broke up,
after having passed a' most enjoyable
evening. - Those present, besides the

. John Filloon . found a dollar on the
street last night and picked it up intend'
ing to bunt the owner. A closer exam
ination showed that no one would be
very anxious to claim ownership, for It
proved to bo a counterfeit and not a very
good one at that.' ,; It was dated in 1889
and bad a very bright look. , The weight
was considerably heavier than the regu
lation dollar that is' caueing so much
trouble these days and the money has a
loach quite different from the regular
coin. The chances are pretty good that
Mr. Filloon can keep his find as long as
he wants to. .

Last night the directors of tbe D. P. &
A. N. Co. held a meeting at the Regu
lator office, which can be said to have
been the pleasante&t one they ever had
held. There were' present Directors
Hugh Glenn, Sam'l L. Brooks, Ed. M.
Williams, Orion Kinersly and M. T.
Nolan. Joseph T. Peters was unavoid
edly detained in Portland by business
and Hon. Rob t. Mays was unable to
come in from-the country. After some
routine business Mr. Nolan moved that
a dividend of 10 per cent, be' declared
upon all capital stock. Mr. Glenn sec
onded tbe motion and it passed unan
imously.' The capital stock is $39,000jind a 10
per cent, dividend will divide 3,900
among the stockholders. We doubt if
there is another transportation company
west of the Rocky mountains that will
declare a. dividend this year and we do
not think there is one in tbe United
States that will declare a 10 percent, one.

The militia boys, under command of
Captain Cbrisoran, drilled upon the
streets last evening. The night , was a
very pleasant one and the company en

good appearance. After some maneuv

company halted on the corner of Second
