Either The Dalles is growing rapidly
in population or its citizens are more
prone in going out in public. Last even
ing the Methodist church was filled with
listeners to hear Prof. Riddell, while a
large crowd packed the Baldwin at the
performance of the Cbase Stock Com
pany. .Besides these several lodges held
regular meetings and probably they had
their full share of attendants.
A crowded house greeted the Chase
Stock Company at the Baldwin last
night. The play was "Uncle's Darling,"
produced for the first time in The Dalles.
The company- is composed of actors and
actresses of merit and the audience was
generous in applause. Some very good
singing was interspersed in the play.
The company carries their own scenery

rnings, the interpreter. Although Ching
is a hard looking citizen, there are a
good many people who think he may be
innocent of the charge against him. His
story that he was present but did not
know that a murder was to be committed
is a reasonable one.
The first slide of the season occurred
last night about 11 o'clock at the new
grade near the high bridge, about seven
miles west of town. The rain and snow
of yesterday had loosened the eoil,
which bad been already torn up by the
blasting of last summer, so that a por
tion of the hill came down upon the
track, covering it for a distance of forty
feet. A gang of men was immediately
set to work, and in a couple of hours the
track was cleared. The passenger train
from Portland, which usually reaches
ere at a little after midnight, did not
arrive till 2 o'clock.
- A jury was secured last evening in the
murder trial of Lee Ching, who is
charged with participation in the mur
der of Lock Wo last August. After the
regular panel" had been exhausted,
thirty-four men were summoned on
special venuree, Of these thirty-one
were examined. The jury obtained is
as follows: W. D. Jones, Sam Edmon
son, R. H. Guthrie, George W. Row
land, Peter Godfrey, A. D. McDonald,
Frank Gabel, Frank Kincaid, F. M.
Thompson, W. R. Heyres, W. H. O'Dell
and F. J. Kellar. The opening state
ments were made this morning, and
good headway has been made with the
examination of witnesses. Mr. A. F.
Sears assists the prosecuting attorney
and Huntington & Wilson represent the
A Farewell I'arty.
Last evening as Mr. and Mrs. A. C.
Wyndham were busy packing prepara
tory to their leaving tor California, a
knock was heard at the door and when
it was opened in came about thirty of
their friends and neighbors, who had
gathered for a farewell party. Although
Mr. and Mrs. Wyndham were considera
bly surprised they recovered and did the
honors of host and hostess in a hospita
ble manner. After spending a delight
ful evening with amusements and con
veisation, during .which a bounteous
lunch was served, the guests departed

safe journey and a pleasant life in balmy

A Wasco County Case.
MAI ER & BENTON.
Iu the case of John Barger, appellant
vs. O. D. Taylor, respondent, which was
appealed from Wasco county, -the su
preme court rendered a decision yester
day overruling the motion of the res
pondent to dismiss the appeal. The
Statesman contains the following state
ment of the case :
This is a suit to foreclose a mortgage.
The defense is usury. The court below
found the contract usurious and rendered
a decree in. favor of the school fund.
From this the plaintiff appealed but did
not serve the state with notice thereof.
The defendant moves to dismiss the ap
peal on the ground that the state is a'n
adverse party and ought to have notice.
The supreme court holds that the state
is not a party in the legal sense of the
term and consequently it is not neces
sary that service of notice be made on it.

An Increased Attendance.
Gratifying reports come of the prog
ress our city schools are making. Last
year the attendance greatly exceeded
the enrollment of the previous one; but
this year shows an increased number
over 1894 During the month of Novem
ber the public school enrollment and at
tendance are generally-the largest of the
school year. In November, 1894, all
previous records of attendance were
broken ; but the month just ended
shows the number of popils enrolled to
be the largest in the history of the
Echools. From figures furnished us by
the- principal we make the following
Enrolled from opening in September 69S 647
Enrolled nnring November 602 620
Average number belonging in Nov 626 586
Average daily attenduuee 606 GOi
The Dalles has reason to be proud of
its public schools. Under the present
management the schools have attained
high rank and gained an enviable repu
tation abroad, as well as at home. They
are the means of a&racting many resi
dents to this, city, who come in order
that their children may obtain educa
tional advantages. The raising of the
grades was a good thing, both for the
school and the city. We trust our city
schools may keep up the high standard
which at present is maintained.
