dangerously ill for some time, was
biought into The Dalles this morning
and will be taken to Portland tomorrow.
Mr. Balch is somewhat improved,
though his condition is far from being
what his friends would have it. He is
taken to Portland where the hospital
facilities, it is hoped, will be conducive
to his recovery.
S. F. Gill of Portland has been chosen
engineer on the Regulator. Mr. Gill is
a brother of J. K. Gill, the well-known
Portland book merchant, and is well
known among steamboat men on the Co
lumbia river. He is well qualified for
his new position.
The county court is well into the work
of the session. The most important
business transacted, was the changing of

house. A road petition from German
Sequie was received and continued until
the next term.

The open weather of the past two
weeks has made the farmers think of
plowing. A number of them are already
making furrows in their fields, but it is
generally thought it is yet too early for
plowing to be done. The grass is grow
ing finely, and every day that this mild
weather continues means a saving of
feed to the stock-raiser and farmer. So
far the winter is proving satisfactory to
A pleasant afternoon party was given
yesterday by Mrs. A. JJ Newman and
Miss Newman at their residence on
Fourth street. The alair was given in
honor of Miss Moody of Salem, wfio is
visiting in The ftelles. The afternoon
was spent midst fapcy work, while con
versation and musnh combined to make
the hours pass swiftly. A dainty lunch
was served to tRe guests who were for
tunate enouglrto be present. Those who
accepted of the hostesses' hospitality
were Mrs Hilton, Mrs Mack, Mrs H W
French, Mrs Bronson, Mrs W H Moody,
Mrs Price, Miss Lang and Miss Moody.
Parties driving into The Dalles over
the lower"! road to 5-Mile are loud in
complaint of the road leading from the
brewery to the railroad company's ice
house. The thoroughfare could hardly be
in worse condition, they say. At the
last meeting of the council it was or
dered that the marshal be empowered to
employ a man at $2 per day to do work
upon the streets, and there is no better
place for work to be done than the por
tion of Second street between the places
mentioned. Two dollars a day should
get good men, as a multitude of laborers
could be found glad to do the work at
even a less figure. We hope to see a
great deal of work on the roads leading
to town, as they are in need of it.
The Red Men held an enthuBiestio
meeting last night, at which it was de
cided to give a grand ball February 22
in the Baldwin opera house. A com
mittee consisting of W. H. Butts, F.
Lemke and Ad. Kellar was appointed to
make all necessary arrangements for the
event. The Orchestra Union will fur
nish the music and the dance will be
first-class in all respects. The Red Men
chose Washington's birth day as the oc
casion for the festivities, because George
Washington was the first grand sachem
of the order. The Red Men date back
to the famous Boston Tea Party, when
fifty citizens of Boston disguised as In
dians, threw a cargo of tea into Boston
harbor. The ball next month will be a
Interest in the militia has been greatly
stimulated in The Dalles of late, and Co.
G is receiving a number of new recruits.
Since the completion of the new armory
the boys are taking a great deal of pride
iii the organization. The drill last even
ing was largely attended, forty-five mi
litia men being in the ranks. Seven
new men were mustered in, the names
being as follows : Fred Hilton, Arthur
Hendershott, W. M. McQee, Max Bar
te'l, Archie Barnett, Will. Brown and
Will. Johnson. The members of the
company are each acting as a recruiting
committee and several new names are
expected to be added to the muster roll at
the next drill night. The material that
is going into Co. G is of first-class kind,
and The Dalles will have the crack com
pany of Eastern Oregon. Socially the
members of the militia take pleasure in
their organization and in their fine ar
mory find many opportunities for rec
reation. A good criterion of the increase or de
crease in the amount of business done in
a town is the change which the receipts
of the poatoffice exhibit. A further
proof that the present year has been a
better business season for The Dalles
than was last year, is shown by the fact
that the receipts in the local postoffice
for 1895 greatly exceeded those of 1894.
A comparison for the two years shows
that from Oct. 31 to Dec. 31, 1S94, the
receipts of The Dalles office were $1813.52.
For the same period in 1895, they were
$2098.26 a gain of nearly $300 for three
months. In the quarter preceding the
above, or from July 1 to Oct. 2, 1894, the
postoffice took in $1613.70. For a like
period in '95 the amount was $1804 a
gain of nearly $200. This showing is a
very satisfactory one, and is evidence
that the business done in The Dalies is
better this year than last and constantly
Last evening about 6o'clock a gentle
man standing in front of Stephens' store
saw a "young lad purloine a pocket
handkerchief. The gentleman notified
Officer. Connelly, who followed the boy
and brought him to Mr. Stephens, where
a' confession was made. The boy is a
son ' of well-known and respected par
ents, living in The Dalles, and the spe
cies of thieving, in which be indulged
last night, is the result of evil compan
ionship. The culyrit, whose name we
withhold for the sake of his parents,
said that there is a gang around town
organized to commit depredations of
this sort and that other merchants bad
suffered in the same way. After the
boy confessed, Mr. Stephens was not
disposed to press the matter, and he
was allowed to depart by the officer upon
solemn promises that this offense would
be the last. This is the second time
within a short while that thieving of
this sort has been discovered, as last
fall articles were found that had
been stolen from the Btores of
Pease & Mays and A. M. Williams &
Co. Officer Connelly learned the names
of some of the boys who have been doing
this sort of thing, and a sharp watch
will be kept upon their actions.
Improvements at trie Electrlo Debt
The Dalles has reason to be proud of
its electric light works. Few cities the
size of this place have as complete a
plan, while many larger cities will
suffer in comparison with the electric
light system in The Dalles. Some im
provements have been made at the
works, which will provide still greater
efficiency in the service. A new alter
nating dynamo has been received, which
will allow of 1000 incandescent sixteen
candle power lights to be added to the
number previously used. The demand
for lights had rendered it necessary that
the capabilities of the service be in
creased. There is now sufficient power
to furnish 2640 sixteen-candle lights and
fifty arc lights. The number of incan
descents now in use is about 2000.
Among other improvements to be
noticed is a switch-board of the latest
design. A lightning arrestor has just
been received, and its working was ex
plained to a Cheosiclb reporter today.
Should the wires be struck at any place
by lightning, the ehbek would reach as
far as the arrestor and then pass along a
wire leading into the ground, and thus
be prevented from reaching the machin
ery. Should the number of incandes
cent lights reach over 2000, it would
probably be necessary that a new engine
and boiler of greater size and power be
