The members of the Gesang Verein
held one of their regular socials last
evening at the Baldwin theater,
large number ot members were -in at
tendance. In the early part of the even

Professor Birgfeld, rendered some pleas

ciability was spent by the members.
The occasions of their monthly socials
are very pleasant to the members of the
Hard times are beginning to make in
roads on the legal professi6n. Last
week an attorney from Butte, who was
down on his luck, stopped in The Dalles
and was assisted to Portland through
the benevolence of local attorneys. This
morning a barrister from our sister state
appeared upon 'the scene and solicited
aid because of hia demoralized finances.
Ill health and bad investments are what
brought him to the condition of having
to ask assistance from the profession.
He was helped by some of his compas
The weather is all that could be de
sired for the work at the locks. So far
this winter there have been but few
days when" outside work could not be
carried on to advantage. When the
snow storm of last month came, it was
thought work would be hindered, and
preparations were made to put things in
winter quarters. The scare was not
lasting, however, and the engines and
men are at work again. Unless the.
rest of the winter . is unusually disa-
greeable, the contractors cannot com-

Tomorrow evening the lecture of Hon.
D. P. Thompson will occur at the Con
gregational church. The subject will
be "The Holy Places of Palestine," and
will be replete with personal observa
tions of the lecturer. Mr. Thompson
has traveled extensively, and used his
powers of observation to their limit.
This will be fourth lecture in the winter
course, and will prove one of the most
interesting. Mr. Thompson has lectured
before to Dalles audiences, and made a
pleasing impression. Doors will open
at 7 :30 tomorrow night, the lecture to
begin at 8.
January and February are generally
regarded as quiet months in business
circles, being between two lively periods,
the holidays and the opening of the
spring trade. The weather is generally
more or less unpleasant, and the farm
ers come to town no oftener than is nec
essary, while city folk like the comfort
of home better than the elueh of the
streets or the feeling of the atmosphere
when the thermometer is lying low.
With business quiet, more attention is
given to social affairs, and the3e two
months society rules. The latter part
of December, with its three large dances,
was a lively period socially, and the
present month promises ja-ell in- that
line. Some large affairs are being con
templated, while a number of smaller
functions will occur. Several after
noon parties are on the list, and alto
gether the devotees of society need have
no complaint 'but that they will be
treated well in the present season.
ett. left Saturday evening
for Washington, D. C, where he goes to
argue some cases in the United States
supreme court. Among the cases in
which he will appear is the case of
Skottowe vs. the railroad company, be
ing an ' action for damages growing out
of an accident which happened in The
Dalles several years ago. While walk
ing at night on the railroad bridge lead
ing to the shops, Mr, and Mrs. Skottowe
tell off the bridge and sustained injuries,
from which Mr. Skottowe died, and
which caused Mrs. Skottowe great suf
fering. The case was first tried in The
Dalles, and has passed through various
courts, till it is now in the highest tri
bunal in the land.
The clothing merchants have agreed
to close their housee of business at 7
o'clock on evenings except Saturday
from now until March 1st. In Satur
day's issue it was said that Mr. Stephens
would close his store at an early hour,
but it should have been stated that the
other merchants will join in the early
closing movement. The mistake arose
in misunderstanding the notice which
Mr. Stephens gave the paper. This
early closing movement is a wise one,
one and will give employers and clerks
more ime for recreation, and just as
much business will be done in the course
of the day. We hope to see the early
closing become general in all the busi
ness houses of the town.

i - ....
Ing in line with their more civilized
brothers and sisters in The Dalles, and
indulging in social festivities. Last
night a dance was held at Tumwater,
which waa attended by the Celilo, Tum
water and Dalles . Indians. Old Joe,
who is our informant, says the dance
was a "tennas" affair, as there are but
few Indians now in the country, and
judging from Joe's description,- the
dance did not have the eclat that such
affairs possessed in the early days, The
smell of salmon was more noticeable
than the odor of war paint if war paint
has any odor and the braves and-
squaws did not dance with the same
vigor as did their ancestors of fifty
years ago". However, the dance kept
up all night, and the boys went home
with the girls in the morning.
Last. Saturday evening a meeting was
held jn the First Baptist church to see
what could be done towards organizing
a Lutheran church, at which both Eng
lish and Lutherans- could- worship.
Quite a number of people attended the
meeting and the opinion expressed was
unanimous that an endeavor should be
made to form the organization. A tem
porary committee, consisting of Messrs,
iMCKieEon, xiansen ana jvielqaisc was
appointed to take charge of the prelimi
nary ..arrangements. It is probable ar
ticles of incorporation will bf prepared
and filed within a few days. It is the
intention to secure church property at
an early date. Ntxt Tuesday evening
preaching will be held, after which the
business session will reconvene and mat
ters further discussed. So far the out
look is bright for the organization of the
The secretary of the Commercial Club
has received a letter from Mr. J. H. D.
liray, of the Astoria Chamber of Com
merce, relative to making arrangements
for celebrating the opening ot the locks.
The letter states that the people of As
toria are .taking great interest in the
completion of the undertaking that will
free the Columbia from The Dalles to
the sea, and are anxious to co-operate
in celebrating the affair in a fitting
manner. Mr. Gray suggests that the
Commercial Club of The Dalles appoint
one or two gentlemen who will meet in
Portland a like number from Astoria,
and that this joint committee obtain all
possible information as to the day when
the contractors expect that boats will
pass through the canal. Astoria people
are anxious that our commercial club
consider the matter at an early date and
make ready to co-operate in a jollifica
tion. "Astoria," Eays Mr. Gray, "will
send two or three boat-loads of people
to witness the first boat go through the
