Capt. Penn Short, who during the

Bteamer Regulator, is now mate on the
Eimore, the new O. R. & N. boat run

It has been rumored on the street for
several days. that a new flouring mill
is to be built in The Dalles, but
whether or not there is any foundation
for the rumor cannot be determined.

The first seven volumes of deed records
in the county vault are undergoing a
process of rebinding. Constant use and
misuse has worn out the covers and
binding and to save an utter collapse
the woik of renovating was found nec
essary. Ihese deed records make a
good history of the county and much in
formation could be gleaned from them.
The orchestra last night was very fine
and called forth much praise from those
who heard it. Under the leadership of
Professor Birgfeld, the orchestra is con
tinually improving. The music they
play is of high grade and the manner in
which it is rendered shows constant and
careful training. The orchestra is on
hand eveiy evening this week at the
Baldwin, and to bear its music, is alone
worth the price of admiseion.
There is a lot of spurious coin in town.
On collection day several counterfeit
dollars were discovered and one or two
of our business men were deceived bv
the misrepresentation. Last night a
clerk in one of the city stores took in a
$10 gold piece which was afterwards
found to be no good. People should be
careful in inspecting money that they
receive, as undoubtedly this city is being
made a dumping ground for inferior
The ladies of the Congregational
church will give a bazaar on Dec. 13th

hall has been secured and will be fitted
with booths carrying various stocks of
attractive things foi Christmas. An
entertaining program has been prepared
for which a nominal admiseion fee of 10
cents will be charged. In the hall will
be found booths containing fancy work,
Christmas articles, cut flowers and
many other displays pleasing to the eye.
Some of the best local talent has been
secured for both evenings and the bazaar
with its attendant features will be a de
lightful occurrence. Remember the
time, Dec. 13th and 14th one week

James White, who keeps a fruit stand
in the East End, bad an experience with
a emooth individual last night which
came nearly caueing him the loss of five
good dollars. The stranger came in and
asked for 25 cents worth of goods and in
payment tendered White a five dollar
piece, for which the latter handed him
the required change. Upon a closer in
spection Mr. White discovered the coin
was counterfeit and demanded that the
stranger refund the money given in
change. This he at first refused to do,
but a belligerent display on the part of
Mr. White caused the man to respond to
the request. Officers were sent for but
before they could arrive the alleged
counterfeiter had disappeared and as yet
has not been found.
Yesterday a small sized hurricane
visited the Columbia river with dis
astrous results. A wood ecow belonging
to J. T. Peters and Capt. Foster started
to cross from Stevenson to Cascades
with a heavy load of wood. When in the
middle of the river the wind changed to
blowing from the east and . the scow was
unable to make the desired headway and
began drifting down stream. Two
anchors were thrown out and for awhile
the boat was held stationary, but one of
the anchors broke and the other loosened
so that the ecow drifted on to one of the
islands at the head of the rapids. . The
ecow was heavily loaded with wood and
during the blow about one half was lost
overboard. It is thought if there are
no holes in the hull the scow can,by the
aid of a strong west wind.be rescued
from its present predicament. The re
mainder of the wood will probably have
to be thrown overboard. When the
anchor chain broke a piece struck the
son of Capt. Foster on the hand, bruis
ing it so severely that amputation may
The Chase Stock Company delighted
a large audience at the theatre last
night. The play was the "Little
Coquette," an up-to-date comedy, writ
ten by Charles W. Chase for laughable
purposes only. The plot was "fun-producing
and the situations very amusing.
During the performance some neat
specialty work was done, while the
audience was favored with some singing
of high merit. Hettie Bernard Chase as
"Little Coquette" acted her part in
keeping with the good reputation ehe
has earned in other cities. . Mabel Eston
as "Aunt Jerusha" made a good impres
sion, as also did Charles W. Chase in
the part, of "Chas. Everett," a dude
from Boston. Ed. F. Gardner in the
character of "August Klotz" made a
great hit and proved himself a comedian
of good powes. He introduced some
singing and dancing specialties which
took well with the audience. The re
mainder of the cast was good. Tonight
will be presented "Two Orphane," a
piece well worth witnessing, the critics

A mild sensation was sprung this
morning by the report that Lonn
Stevens, the express driver, had attempt
ed suicide. When his wife went to
wake him this morning he was in a
deep sleep, and after several attempts
proved ineffectual Ehe became alarmed
and summoned aid. Dr. Doane was the
first upon the scene, followed shortly
after by Dr. Sutherland. . After working
some time the doctors succeeded in re
storing the patient to consciousness.
When lie came to a realization of what
was going on he said to the doctors:
"There's no need of your working. I
took it and meant to make it work." It
seems that Mr. Stevens purchased some
laudanum from Blakeley & Houghton,
saying it was for a horse. -Upon this
representation the drug was given him.
Lonn Stevens is well known in The
Dalles, whee be has lived for many
years and has worked hard at bis busi
ness. Just why he should attempt so
a rash deed is beyond the understand
ing of his friends. He is now out of
