Another Success Scored.
The necktie social, given on Saturday
evening last, by The Dalles Lodge, No.
2, 1. O. G. T., proved in every respect to
be a pleasant affair. The program
showed good taste in its selection, and
was well rendered, each number being
heartily encored. Owing to the eevere
ness of the weather during the preced
ing week preventing the rehearsal, sev
eral interesting numbers were omitted.
Each lady brought a basket contain
ing a necktie and refreshments for two,
the necktie corresponding to a bow worn
by the lady. At the proper time the
baskets were auctioned off to the highest
bidder. Competition was rife during
the bidding, and some of the less for
tunate bidders suffered the sight of see
ing the choice , of their heart, lunching
ifrith the "other fellow."
The large audience gave evidence of
the high esteem with which theee en
tertainments are held.

tgregational church of this city offi'ciat
re iitg Notwithstanding the bad travel
ing, a large number of friends and
neighbors gathered" at the house to pay
their last respects to ' the dead. Tom
Gilmore, as he was familiarly called,
was well known to everyone in The
Dalles, and a short biographical sketch
will be of interest :
Thomas M. Gilmore was born May
12, 1845, in Washington county, Oregon,
where the town of Cornelius now stands.
He moved with his parents in 1846 to
Yamhill county, where he lived until
1861, moving thence to Portland, Or.,
where he attended the Portland acad
emy. He enlisted as a private in Com
pany D, First Regiment, Oregon Volun
teer Infantry, in 1862, and served in that
company until the close of the war.
After being honorably discharged, be
returned to the Willamette valley,
where be remained until 1873, coming
thence to Klickitat county at that date.
He lived in various parts of Eastern
Oregon and Washington until 1881. He
was married in December of that year
to Mrs. Sarah1' Lewis, since which date
he has lived continuously in Klickitat
county until the time of his death, Jan
uary 17, 1896.
During his residence in Klickitat
county he was chosen to many positions
of trust by his neighbors, which showed
the high esteem in which he was held
by those who knew him best. .
A wife and two children, together
with an aged mother, two brothers and
four sisters, survive him-; and to them
the community extends its heartfelt
Good News for Warrant-Holders.
NewB was received in The Dalles Sat
urday night that the supreme court of
Washington at Olympia had affirmed
the decision of the superior court of
Z 1 ifV! to t. ftnnnfv fn tViA n - ttt famnnD
bond case. The decision covers manyj
points of contention, but the mam effect,
eo far as Dalles warrant-holders are con
cerned, is that warrants issued between
Nov. 12, 1889, and March 9, 1893, are
valid obligations against the county,
and that bonds can be exchanged for
validated warrants. The decision is of
much interest to people in this city, be
cause over $60,000 in Klickitat warrants
are held in The Dalles.
The case was one of the most Import
ant ever heard before Washington's
highest tribunal, and the decision will
be satisfactory, both to warrant-holders
and to the people of our neighboring
county who are anxious to see progress
made in getting out of the pressing debt
which has threatened her credit. Klick
itat county, by wise management, will
in time work out of her financial difficul
ties, and by the aid of her natural re
sources, be among the first of the state's
