The school meeting on .January 31st
will be an important one for the dis
trict. The question otssipyiding more
school room is a pressinane, and as
every property-owner in the district is
interested in the subject, at least to the
amount of taxes he pays, the matter is
not one which can be treated as of little
moment. From the prospects now in
view it looks as if the district will have
either to build another school building
or rent one. One of these alternatives
will have to be selected. Tha subject is
one that will be helped by a free discus
sion, and to that end The Chronicle
will be glad to hear from any citizen
who may have any views to present.
It is in this way that a newspaper can
be of much good to a community by
providing a means ' whereby opinions
may be circulated and a subject dis
cussed with profit. The columns of this
paper are always open to communica
tions upon matters of interest, and es
pecially in this instance we believe gocd
would be obtained by hearing the views
of our taxpayers. -
The ladies of. Fern Lodge, D. of H.,
held one of their noted sessions last
night at Fraternity hall in honor of Mr.
and Mrs. Alden, who have .recently re
turned from their wedding trip. After
the regular exercises of lodge, the
musical talent of the members was
brought into requisition and discoursed
sweet sounds for the entertainment of
the guests. A 6olo by Miss Lizzie
Sampson was beautifully rendered, and
Mrs. Briggs delivered a recitation which
was a combination of music and rhetoric
in that happy form for which she is so
well adapted. The tables were, then
spread and a sumptuous lunch prepared,
when the Chief of Honor, Mrs. Ollie
Stephens, in a few well-chosen remarks,
called up' the guests of the evening and
Mrs. Capt. Waud presented them with
an elegant silver spoon as a souvenir of
the lodge's appreciation as members.
The wind was in the wrong quarter for
Mr. Alden's speech, but like a true
sailor he put the ship on the other tack
and made a safe harbor under the lee
of his beautiful and accomplished wife.
The whole affair was a complete sur
prise to them, and most highly appre
ciated by all present.
Mr. Charles N. Tibbets arrived in The
Dalles yesterday from Monterey, Calif
ornia and today departed, taking with
him as his wife one of The Dalles' fair
young maidens. The wedding ceremony
that made Charles Tibbeta and Miss
Pauline D. Buchler one, was performed
by the Rev. W. C. Curtis at the residence
of the bride's parents shortly before
noon this morning. The wedding was a
quiet one, being witnessed only by the
members of ' the family. After the cere
mony, a wedding lunch was served.
Mr. Tibbets is. well known in The
Dalles, where for several years he made
his home. During the time Bpent in
this city he held a trusted position in
the Pacific Express Company's office.
Last . summer " he went to Monterey,
where he holds a good situation in a
large mercantile house. .
Miss Buchler is the accomplished
daughter of our much respected and
popular citizen, Mr. August Buchler.
Xhe years that have brought her to
womanhood have been spent in this
citv, where by her estimable qualities
she has won many friends.
The happy couple left on the after
noon train for their California home,
followed by the best wishes of all who
know them. '
The Honor of Being First.
The one question which lies deeoest
in the minds of the peonle of this city
and of the country whose river port it
is, is, "When will She Jocks at the Cas
cades be finished?"Although it may
not be talked aboufVuVen all occasions,
yet there is Lnrdly any citizen who, in
his leisure moments, does not turn this
matter over in hia mind and wonder if
it is true, after all these years of waiting,
of disappointment and hope deferred
till almost gone this great undertaking
is really to be accomplished, and the
waters of the Columbia, figuratively
speaking, will flow unfettered U the
sea. March 1st, the day which seems to
be agreed upon as the time for the in
formal opening of the locks, is but a
short while removed, and a little pa
tience will determine whether or not the
contractors have made their word good.
A little clipping from the Stevenson
Pioneer says :
It is given out for a fact that the locks
will be so far completed as to a'low the
passage of boats by the first day of
March, and the cities of Astoria and
The Dalles are preparing to celebrate
the event in great shape. There will be
big excursions from both these places,
and probably from many other Doints,
to see the first boat pass through the
channel. Our own beautiful Regulator
is to have the honor of being the first
boat to make the passage, and for a little
while the middle river will be without
a 8 team boat, for the first time in just
forty years. All this is good news, and
we hope it will come to paes without
any further delay. We have been dis
appointed so many times about the
completion of the canal and locks that
we are always afraid to make a state
ment regarding their completion at a
certain date for fear it will amount to
only another disappointment. - k
The Pioneer has been wrongfully in
formed as to the . Regulator being the
first boat to pass . through the locks. A
director of The Dalles, Portland & As
toria Navigation Company informed a
Chbonicle reporter today . that the
Dalles City would receive the honor of
being first, and it is fitting that she
should. For four years this staunch
boat has steamed through the turbulent
waters to the foot of the locks and
stopped at the obstructions, not then
removed. She has knocked at the door
so often that it would be unfitting to let
another enter first. Besides, the people
of The Dalles would rather take no
risks. We are not caring to have this
river free from boats, even for once in
forty years. We would rather be sought
than seeking, and after other boats have
reached the middle river, we are willing
to let the Regulator pass through the
The day that the locks are opened will
be a time of rejoicing such as never was
seen in Eastern Oregon before.

Good Words for The Dalles.

than Minneapolis has since 1860. All it
