The crew of the local train from Port
land noticed no drifts along the road ex

had piled op to a depth of three feet.
The severity of the Btorm is about the

not so much snow has fallen.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is
not a very balmy one. Snow and much
cooler weather is predicted. The dis

Deputy Grand Maeter Workman Paul
Kreft of The Dalles is in Antelope,
where he recently installed the officers
of Antelope Lodge, No. 44, A. O. U. W.
Word reaches us that the occasion was a
joyou9 one, the members of Purity
Lodge, No. 39, Degree of Honor, assist
in the festivities that followed the in
stallation. The usual order of Buch
hings was reversed, and the ladies were
terved with a bountiful lunch by the
gentlemen. The list of officers installed
fis as follows : P A Kirchheiner, P M W ;
A M F Kirchheiner, M W; FN Spicer,
F; W H Silvertooth, O; Wm Menefee,
R ; J T Bennett, financier ; L T Dam,
receiver ; T J Harper, G ; Bert Rogers,

ported in a flourishing condition, and
glad to receive visitors from The Dalle:
The funeral services of the late Georgi
H. Thompson were held this afternoon
in the Congregational church. Despite
the inclemency of the day, a large num
ber of friends of the deceased listened
to the -last words. Rev. W. C. Curtis
epoke a few words' appropriate to th
occasion and the choir sang two hymns.'
C. L. Phillips, T. A. Hudson, J. Mi
Huntington, W. H. Wilson, J. H. Phir
man and M. A. Moodv were nallbearpro.
A large number of carriages followed the
hearse to Sunset cemetery, where all
that was mortal of George Thompson
was laid in its last resting place. In the
city where he was best known and
where most of his successes were
achieved, he sleeps the long sleep,
while the memory of him will long con
tinue iu the minds of sorrowing friends.
Things were not lacking for interest
in the proceedings of the county court
today. The attention of the judge and
commissioners was taken op with hear
ing a petition asking that Dufur pre
cinct be divided. Over .- fifty names
were signed to the petition. W. H. H.
Dufur and Mr. Nolin appeared before
the court for the petitioners, while the
other side the people who want the di
vision lines to remain as they are was
represented by T. H. Johnston and M.
D'Esprit and Irish Point
J.Anderson. The contest was a lively
one, and the eloquence of the advocates
increased with the warmth of the dis
cussion. The matter is one in which a
great deal of interest seems to be taken
by the people of Dufur. At the time of
going to press the court had not re-n-derejj
a decision, though the petitioners
desire that the matter be decided today.
If the division be made, the newly
created bailiwick will probably contain
a portion of Kingsley precinct.
The busiest place around town is
where the Regulator is being repaired.
The sound of hammers is heard from
morning till evening, and no music is
more pleasing than the sounds arising
from industry. A score or more of men
are at work on the boat, and a great
deal has been done towards putting the
steamer in better shape. The boiler
tubing has been taken out and is being
cleaned of scales. The mud which had
gathered in the boiler has been re
moved, and the latter made as good as
new. A new mast is being put in the
steamer, which Captain Waud declares
one of the best pieces of timber he has
seen. The new mast is 57 feet long and
free from blemish. The planking,
which was worn out, has been taken
np and new ones are being put on. Con
sidering the hard service the Regulator
has seen since Bhe was last taken out,
her condition is very good, and when
the repairs have been made, she will be
among the best boats on the Columbia.
Repairs are most needed ' on the bow,
where the strain of making landing is felt.
A new keel will be put in at this partof the
boat and the timbers strengthened. In
order to raise the boat from off the
ways tbirty-two jackscrews were needed.
James Hanahhan, an experienced ship
carpenter, has immediate charge of tho
work of repairing.
Time to Advance.
Commercial travelers who visit The
Dalles say it is the best business town of
its Bize in Oregon. Commercial travel
ers nave a laculty, however, oi saying
things to please. But it is true, beyond
doubt, that no city in Oregon can show
a better balance sheet at the end of the
year than can The Dalles. More busi
ness is done in the course ot a year
among our banks and business houses
than in any Eastern Oregon towns. For
the purchase of wool alone $600,000 was
disbursed through our banks last sum
mer, ana me amount paid tor wneat is
large, though not yet determined. Con
servative, substantial, and more or less
progressive, The Dalles faces the future
confident of growth and prosperity.
But we have a lusty rival in Pendle
ton. While The Dalles was a city of
2,000 inhabitants, the jackrabbits were
skipping over the site were Pendleton
now stands. From an interior village,
where a bartering trade was carried on
with Indians and struggling farmers,
Pendleton has progressed, till it has
fairly earned the title to one of the lead
ing towns of Oregon. The secret of its
growth is easy to discover. Up in Pen
dleton the people are on the outlook to
gain some advantage for their city. A
MAIER & BENTON.
econring 'mill and a woolen mill have
already been secured, a foundry nearly
so, and now an electric power plant ia
projected. This latter concern is net
merely to furnish electric lights, but to
give power for the running of all kinds
of manufacturing. A ditch and dam
will be constructed. In the dam will be
placed 150 feet of flood gates. By means
of this ditch it is intended to provide
power for the scouring mills, woolen
mills, Farmers' Custom Mill and other
concerns which may desire to lease
power at so much a month, delivered out
of the end of an electric wire. At the
foot of the ditch a power house to cost
$10,000 will be built. A eeries of wheels
will develope the power and be connect
ed with the dynamo. The entire plant
will cost $27,000, of which $10,000 will
go for machinery and wheels, and $17,
000 for the building of the ditch. It
will take six weeks time and 150 men to
put in the plant.
It can easily be seen what all this
means. Pendleton is in lor becoming a
manufacturing town, and her success so
far is gratifying. There is-a leeeon in
all this for The Dalles. We mast not
rely too much on our natural reeources,
which are greater -by far than those al
lotted to any other Eastern Oregon
town. We must be up and doing. Our
shingle should be hung out to the world
and upon it painted : "Wanted Manu-
facturies." The declaration should go
forth that every inducement consistent
with good business policy, will be of
fered to capitalists who will invest their
money with ns. Let us not be too
proud to learn from our neighbors ; let
as reason together and plan how best
the cities' growth can be advanced. The
time was never so propitious as now.
