Another Baa Man Mistaken.
The Orchestra Union will give a dance
on the 14th of March. The members of
the Union are deserves of buying some
new uniforma and choose this way to as
certain whether their efforts to entertain
the public are appreciated or not. The
orchestra desires every encouragement it
ia possible for the citizens to bestow,
and they ahonld show it in buying liber
ally oi tne tickets. Many a summer
night have the boys pleased our ears by
their sweet melodies, ministering to our
joya or dulling the edge of sorrow with
ithe perfect harmony of their instru-'
ents. Often again in the coming sea'
on will they contribute to our pleasure
ithout money and without price. The
Dalles has every reason to be proud of
its ' orchestra. It contains talent of a
high order. The coming ball will have
n intrinsic value of ita own, apart from
any other consideration, which Bhould
eeaure a large and general attendance.

Jim Crate is a saki rind a wiser man
ia morning. He has labored not under
be delusion that the world owes him a
living, but that a email share of it, that
class of aociety known as the demi
monde, are financially responsible for
hia needs, be theyparge or email. While j
in a house of ill tame adjoining Maetz &
Pundt'a saloon last night he made his
usual demands for money of the inmates.
Tney refused, but he persisted, even re
sorting to threats of personal violence.
They retaliated and threatened to call
the police. He then defied the. whole
police force of the city. ' Shortly after
ward Officer Connelly and Marshal
Blakeney arrived, having been sum
moned. Crate fled to the room next
door, where he waa followed by the offi
cers. Being approached by Blakeney,
Crate shot out his left, but some way it
missed connection, and a stinging blow
in the face felled him to the floor. Both
officers picked him up and he went very
meekly to the city jail. Blood waa
streaming from his face, and a physician
called, who found that Crate had sus
tained a fracture of the nose. He was
patched up, and this morning appeared
before the city recorder. - He plead
guilty and was fined $50. There ia an
other fine of $50 hanging over him for a
misdeed some months ago, which he for
feited ..y coming back to the citv; He
will now have to pay the $50, or serve it
out in jail, before he ia given another
opportunity to leave town.
Words from Ellis.
Hon. W. R. Ellis, writing to a constit
uent in The Dallea, apeaks frankly in
regard to several matters of general in

secure the necessary appropriations to
protect and complete the work at tffe
locks, and that speedily. In regan

sorry the senate would not take up the
tariff hill as it came from the house.
On the whole, he thinks the present
congress will not accomplish much,

that they are too buay president-making,

Saturday evening, at the residence of
Hon. E. B. Dufur, the occasion being in
honor of the anniversary of hia 20th
