The audience at the play last night
was somewhat disturbed by the noise
made by the steam eecaping from a loco
motive standing in front of tho theatre.
If the railway officials would have the en
gine stand further down the bridge while
the play is going on, a favor would be
conferred upon the theatre goers.

taxable property in the district is $25,
400. The voting of a twenty-five mill
school tax, added to the twenty-one
mills already levied, makes forty-six
mills, which the people of the district
near Boyd will have to pay. They are
determined however, to have a good
school for their children.
Mr. W. B. Davison of Utica, Illinois,
arrived in The Dalles this morning.
Mr. Davison is interested in tbe Ochoco
Mining Company, a corporation owning
some valuable mining properties near
Prineville. In company with two other
gentlemen, one a mining engineer and
the other a millwright, Mr. Davison is
on his way to Prineville, where he will
at once begin the development of the
company's mines. Ihe gentleman ex
presses himself greatly pleased with the
appearance of The Dalles, and from
what information he could gather dur
ing the day, stated as his opinion that
our city ihas many of the elements for
growth. Mr. Davison has been engaged
in manufacturing in the East, and saw
at once the advantages in this respect
possessed by The Dalles. He was sur
prised to find that clothing, boots, shoes,
etc., could be purchased here just as
cheap as in Illinois a fact which local
conditions, such as competitive freight
rates through the agency of the D. P. &
A. N. Co., has brought about. Mr. Da
vison expects to leave tomorrow for
A. Meritorious Performance.
Not every seat was taken at the Bald-'
win last evening; but a good-eized au
dience, and one that was very appreci
ative, was present to witness the per
formance of Miss Ellsler and her capable
company in Alexander Dnmas' well
known play, "Camille," We have no
hesitancy in speaking in the highest
terms of the acting done by the mem
bers of the cast. The play, as all thea-ter-goera
know, is one that calls out all
latent histrionic force the dialogue
is quick in thought and word and the
situations very dramatic.
From the rising of the curtain till after
the death scene in the last act, Miss
Ellsler had. the audience as her admir
ers. Her first words showed her to be
an actress of finished art. Possessed of
great natural ability, she has trained
her talents till they have reached that
point which may be called high de
velopment. The story of "Camil'e" is
familiar to all readers of literature. The
life of the gay and frivolous society of
Paris is pictured with stern reality, and
the touch of true love, which forms the
basis for the tale, is shown with touch
ing tenderness. Miss Ellsler had varied
opportunities to prove her ability as -an
actress, and she has improved them all.
Her acting is natural, graceful, and not
lacking in force. In the third act,
where the great sacrifice occurs, she
showed that reserve, that suppressed
emotion in a manner which only the
best of actresses can do.
We would not wish to pass by the re
maining members of the cast without
giving them their just due. Mr. Hoi
brcok Blinn as "Armacd Euval" shared
good Hose for
Closing out price, 20c.
with Miss Ellsler the honors of the even
ing. He is a young actor, who showed
by his performance last evening that his
future in theatrical lines is a bright one.
As "Monsieur Duval" Mr. John Ellsler
was a great success. Mr. True S. James
made a capital "Count De Varville."
The "Gaston Rieux" and "Gustave" of
Mr. George D. Baker and Mr. Andrew
Hitchcock deserve much praise. Miss
Stannard as "Nanine," the French
maid, acted her part very well, while,
Miss Lestina as "Madame Prudence1
added much strength to the cast. Misi
Dauncourt and Miss Benson as "Nicl
ette" and "Olympe" were fully up tl
the remainder of the cast.
The Orchestra 'Union distinguished it
self by the excellence of its playing, and
this always-popular organization shared
with the members of the cast the hearty
applause of the evening. The Dalles
can well be proud of its orchestra, and
the compliments paid to it by the mem
bers ot the cast showed that the posses
sion of such musicians by a town of this
size is unusual.
Altogether it can truthfully be said
that the Ellsler company is one of the
very best that ever came to The Dalles,
and in the minds of some critics, really
surpasses any troupe before in the city.
The Baldwin should be crowded this
evening. The company is deserving of
The Launching of the .Regulator.
Without a hitch or bobble the ReguTa
ior wbb launcnea yesieraay aiiernoon.
In expectancy of the event the directors
of the D. P. & A. N. Co. and quite a
number of the friends of the boat line
1 1 1 3 1 r . N
had assembled at the boat yard, where
all was excitement with ithe hurry and
bustle of preparation. The stately craft
rested upon the ways, as if she felt ehe
were the cynosure of all eyes. . The hour
for the launching had been set at 4
o'clock and betore that time everything
was in readiness for the plunge. Upon
the decks stood a number of ladies and
gentlemen to whom the ride down the
ways was a novel experience. When
word was given the keen edges of the
axes gleamed in the air, and, descending
in unison, the ropes were cot and the
Regulator began her descent. The
stately steamer paused a moment as if
to gather herself together for the plunge
and then moving slowly at first, started
down the ways. As the hull struck the
water, those on the boat and on shore
saluted her with cheering and the wav
ing of handkerchiefs. The launching
was in every way a great success, and
Mr. Hannahan, who had the active
charge of the repairs and launching, felt
well pleased with the result.
The hull of the steamer has been
thoroughly repaired and painted, the
water line being marked by a streak of
red. The interior of the boat will not
be painted, but a new coat will be given
to the outside. After being towed to
her wharf, the repairs on the Regulator
will be completed,. and these prepara
tions, it is hoped, will make ready for
her early appearance in Portland.
Three or four more days will complete
