OUR FOURTH OF JULY.
The Dalles baa Invited the people of
Ibo surrounding country to celebrate
the Fourth of July with us. It be
hooves the town, from the standpoint of
hosts, as well as from the standpoint of
business men, to see to it that no one
who comes shall regret their - 'coming,
xt the celebration be a rousing one,
befitting the event which, we celebrate.
' The Dalles Is dependent for its pros
perity, in a large degree, upon the peo
ple who will be our guests. Let their
welcome be such that they will appreci
ate our kindly feeling toward them and
know that their enjoyment is our pleas-
DARK CLOUD OVER THE BIO
The Big Bend Empire, speaking of
the bright prospects for an abundant
harvest throughout the Big Bend coon
try, says : "But across the clear field
of this bright prospect one cloud still
comes to cast dark shadows as it ex
pands in the summer sky. That is the
transportation problem." And indeed
it is a dark cloud to the people of that
country. Although surrounded by the
grandest of rivers, they are shut in and
dependent upon rail transportation
after hauling their products twenty-five
to fifty miles over sandy roads. With
an open river, this great country, with
its magnificent 'possibilities, would be
favorably situated as to market, and its
increasing trade would pass up and
do w n the Col u m bia.
. Not only will that country be bene
fited beyond calculation, but the com
mercial cities of Oregon Astoria, Port
land and The Dalles, will compete for
its trade. All of Oregon and Washing
ton must stand together for the opening
of the river and let "no opportunity pass
to call the attention of congress to the
great necessity of these improvements.
THE CUBAN REVOLUTION.
Interest in the Cuban revolution is
Increasing throughout the United States
Notwithstanding the precautions of the
United States government to head off
the enthusiasts, many are leaving ane"
joining the revolutionists. Last Sundav
Rev. J. A. .Wilson, a prominent New
York clergyman, openly espoused the
cause of the Cubans, and from bis pul
pit eloquently denounced Spain's treat
ment of Cuba.
It needs very little to move Ameri
cans to espouse the cause of Americans
against a European government, and
the time will soon come when we shall
i 1 1 ,
giB ub cm uea npon to recognize a
neighboring republic which has thrown
Off a rnonarchial yoke. We sincerely
hope it may be done with more grace
and promptness than in the case of
Hawaii. America has little use for
monarchies, and we hope Cuba will
toon show itself truly American.' ' .
We used to pay $3.40 par ton for the
transportation of wheat from-The Dalles
to Portland ; we now pay for the same
service $1.25, a. saving of $2.15 per ton,
or over 8 cents on every bushel. During
the three years and a half that the river
boats have been operated the stockhold
ers have received a dividend of 10 per
cent, less than 3 per cent per annum
npon their capital.. The producers of
wheat last year. alone were benefited
more than 20 per cent on the wheat
marketed, and yet many farmers believe
that the monied men of this city are not
w-11 disposed toward them. The boat
line.is a pood thing for the town; it is
a good thing for the country ; and noth
ing more clearly demonstrates that the
interests of the town and the tributaiy
country are identical than this transpor
tation quest ion.
Notwithstanding new and wonderful
discoveries in illuminating appliances
and materials, the production of petro
leum for export was larger during the
past year than ever before, exceeding
that of 1893 by 100,000,000 gallons. The
prodnction of better lights by means of
electricity seems to increase instead of
. lessen the demands for what almost
Jems an ancient means of illuminating.
'If a New "Eng"an?er "'should 'Be told
ihat bushels of cherries could "be gath
ered in many of the cherry orchards
iear tkis city, each single cherry of
wUch would measure from 3 to S4
inches in circumference, he would say :
"That's another western story of the
same character as your fieb and big tree
stories." But a visit to any of the orch
ards along Dry Hollow or 3-Mile creek
will demonstrate that such a statement
would be no exaggeration. We doubt
if cherries grow to greater perfection or
it h finf-r flavor elsewhere in the world
than in Wasco conntv.
A representative of the Southern Pa
cific railroad is in the city today, and
made the statement that the Southern
Pacific is in. the field lor trade from
Eastern Oregon. The San Francisco
merchants have looked with longing
eyes towards getting a market for their
goods in the Inland Empire, and the
prospects o'f their doing so are exceed
ingly bright. The wool bbsiness is also
what they are after, and, if necessary
to obtain it, a large warehouse will be
built and a storage department oper
ated. All this will be done with the aid
and co-operation of the D. P. & A. N,

The spirited team belonging to Mr. E
E. Lytle added much to the excitement
of last evening. Mr. Lytle was out driv
mg and stopped at the Cold Storage
works to attend to some business,
While he was inside the horsea became
impatient and started off on their own
accord. The further they went the
faster and . soon , they tore up Second
street at the regulation runaway speed.
Passing E- J. Collins & Ca.'s feed raid
they thought it a place to get a meal and
turned in, at the same time trying to
knek a big, freight.. wagon out of the
road. It was -the sauie old story of an
irresistible force and an immovable
body. The hordes went one on each
side of the freight wagon and the tongne
of the buggy was broken to splinters.
The horjes were not injured nor the
buggy, except the tongue, much dam
aged. A very pleasant party was given yes
terday afternoon by Mrs. M. Randall.Tit
her home on the hill. The dav was the
35tn anniversary of Mr. and. Mrs. Ran
dall's marriage and the members of the
King's Daughters and Good Intent
society were invited to join in the occa
sion's festivities. The afternoon was
passed very pleasantly in social conver-
eation, after which a bountiful lunch was
served. Many congratulations were
given upon the auspicious occat-ion and
wishes that the next thirty-five vears
ould be as happy as the last thirty-five
A quarterly inspection of the militia
will take place this evening at the
armory. Col. Thompson has issued or
ders to have both the staff, company G
and the Hospital Corps appear at 8
o'clock, fully uniformed and equipped.
The field and staff will report to the
colonel, and the non-commissioned staff
to the adjutant. There will doubtless
be a good many yisitors to see the boys
dressed up in their beet. The Dalles an

The following advertisement has been
given a prominent position in the daily
papers of Washington, D. C, and has
been printed", in the Chicago Musical
News' and the American Hebrew News,
of Portland. We desire to call the atten
tion of the public to it. .
The unfairness of the assertions it con
tains needs no emphasizing, for they
will appear at once to the sense of right
inherent in every legitimate dealer in
pianos all over the country :
Next Tuesday will be a special ban
gain day on pianos at our store. We
have found some grand bargains in new
Upright Pianos (not the celebrated Kim
hall pianos), and propose to give the
public a chance to secure new pianos
next Tuesday at manufacturers' whole
The prices Tiiesday next for these new
elegant Upright pianos will be only $149
and $159 each. Part time given if de
sired. These pianos will be on exhibit
at nnr store all day Monday, but no sales
will be made from t his lot until Tuesday,
and will continue that day only.

The Kimball Company may regard
such methods as fair and honorable, but
they are open to the severest criticism in
attempting to destroy the piano trade in
Washington after many years of honor
able work to promote it.
The unfairness of the card lies -in the
assertion that the pianos which are to
be sold at sacrificial prices are not made

This whole scheme is perpetrated to
give the Kimball pianos a position to

root of the piano industry for they mis
