There will be a meeting of The Dalles
Commercial Club tomorrow evening at
8 o'clock to consider the Fossil . road
proposition. This is one of the most im
portant matters that is likely to come
before the club the present season. All
prospective fields for business must be
looked after if The Dalles is 'to rise to
that commercial importance which be
longs to her by right of topographical
and geographical position. Tne Dalles
should, control the trade of that entire
region of country bounded by the Cas
cades on the west, the Prineville region
in the- south, a large portion of Sherman
county to the east and of Klickitat on the
north. The ripest frnit to pluck just
now ia the Fossil region, and there is
little .doubtHhe . Commercial Club will
take the necessary steps to do so. .,
A man came in The Chkoniclb office
this evening and told ua the following,
Never has this Department been so complete with us as it is this
season. We were fortunate in making our selections early in the
season, therefore securing some of the choicest novelties in the market.
We are showing over one hundred new patterns in Mohair Lizzards,
plain and figured Mohair, Silk Mohair in stripes and figures, ranging
in price from 40c to $2.0.0 per yard.
In our colored goods department can be found some of the choicest
things in Silk and Mohair, Wool Mohair Dress Patterns of eight yds.
each. A visit to our Stock of pie.-e goods. will convince you that every
thing is a novelty, and at prices that will astonish you.,
bat whether or not it is a josh we don't
want to be asked : (. "A passer-by along
First street .during the wee sma' hours
of a recently vanished day, heard some
very unusual noises emanating from
above the Johns' Lumbering Co.'s office,
Being unfamiliar with the interior, it
appeared to his disturbed senses that a
great crime was being perpetrated ; as if
a sota naa Deen tnrown by an im
passioned hand at a human victim, who
dodged it, the sofa striking the wall
ninety feet beyond. Other noises fol
lowed, suggesting the impression that
the would-be murderer had followed up
his disadvantage by wrenching the grate
out of aifurnace, felling bis victim at
laBt and dragging him along a hallway.
Wrought to an extreme state of mental
agitation, be softly bounded up the
steps of the Commercial Club, deliber-j
ately forced the doors at the head of then
stairway, and then his astonished gaze!
beheld E. C. Pease taking bowling les
sons of Judge Bradshaw. . The mystery)
was explained. Pease will now give
anybody anxious to try conclusions wit
him on bowling, a start of eight point.
1 tie delegates ot the county conven
tion were invited to a grand Republican
rally at 8 o'clock Saturday evening, and
the invitation was accepted. The meet
ing was under the auspices of the Mc
Kinley club, of which Mr. F, V. Wilson
is president, and that gentleman pre
sided. The hall was filled with dele
gates and Republicans from both, the
city and county. Mr. Cooxe of Hood
River set the ball rolling by a ridic
ulously funny burlesque' epeech on the
coinage question. This speech had the
effect of putting everyone in good humor
and anxious for the solids to follow.
Mr. M. P. Isenberg next gave a charac
teristic epeech, abounding In ' good Re
publican doctrine, forcibly expressed.
Mr. John Micbell followed with an able
expose of the Republican attitude on
the tariff and coinage questions. Mr. M.
A. Moody was next 'called .upon, for a
speech.- He responded briefly', thank
ing the delegates who voted in his in
terests at the convention just past. Mr.
B. S. Huntington then made a very ap
propriate and witty speech, followed by
Mr. Hugh Gourlay in one of his felicitous
efforts. This rally, the first after the
convention, gives the Republican part
of 'the campaign an impetus that will
gain strength as time advances and re
sult in an overwhelming victory at the
polls next June. The delegates present
were in splended humor to accept the
invitation given at the close of the meet
ing by the Commercial' Club, to. enjoy
the hospitality of the club rooms, and
nearly, .all availed t themselves of the
kindness. They .were soon thereafter
entertaining themselves in a jolly man
ner at .the bowling alley and other
points of interest at the club. - ' '

MITCHELL IN RUINS.
One-Half of the Town Destroyed Firs'
I The lower part of the town of Mitchell
fwas almost entirely destroyed by fire on
Wednesday afternoon, March 25th. -The
first news possible to get is from the
Mitchell Monitor, owing to the extreme
ly poor mail facilities of that inland
town. Mitchell is ninety miles from
Antelope, and a stage runs from Mitchell
through Antelope. to The Dalles. There
is no telegraphic communication, and as
the Antelope stage does not wait for the
Mitchell mail, it . is often four or five
days before a letter can reach the rail
road from Mitchell. -
The fire originated in Misener's new
block in lower town on the lower floor,
occupied by W. L. Palmer and J. F.
Magee. It is not known how the fire
started, Mr. Palmer's family being ab
sent at the time. When the fire was
first discovered the smoke and flames
were bursting through the roof and sides
of the building and in leBS time than it
takes to tell it the whole building was in
flames. The front part was occupied by
J. F. Magee as a grocery store, and the
upper story was a hall occupied Dy. the
Knights of Pythias and the A. O. TJ. W.
The flames soon commenced with adjoin
ing buildings, and as quite a . strong
wind waff blowing Jup the canyon there
was no hope of saving them. It was
only by the most strenuous efforts that
the fire was prevented from reaching
the upper portion of the town.
The following ia believed to be the
only insurance : S. T. Brennan f 500, R.
E. Misener $2,800, J. F. Magee $500.
The buildings burned are as follows:
Misener block, described above ; the old
Mitchell hotel 'adjoining on the west;
three residences owned by R. E.
Misener, occupied by S. F. Allen, R. E.
Misener and N. SMisener, respectively.
A. O. McEachern's residence, black
smith shop, saloon and livery stable,
and Misener's saloon. Misener's wine'
cellar, the old store building formerly
occupied by L. ; Howard, the Monitor
office, Sasser'a store building and barns
and Geo. Collins' shop alone remain in
lower town. Household goods were
moved ' into the street, but most were
burned. W. L. Palmer and J. F. Magee
saved absolutely nothing of their house
hold effects, the others losing almost
everything, much of it burning in the
streets after being removed from the
The Brownie Entertainment.
One of the most unusual, yet delight
ful, church entertainments was the
Brownies Saturday night at .the Bald
win. It attracted a house full of people,'
whe took no note of time, because they
were pleased to the last fall ot the cur
tain. The chief source of interest, of
couee, were -the ; Brownies themselves,
who appeared eight, times during the
evening.. When ;ithe .curtain. . rose for
their first Appearance and they -filed in

MAIER & BENTON
Sole Agents for the above
the auditorium, they seemed to people a
fairy world, apart irom the practical one
just before them, an elf-land where the
unexpected was to be expected, capable
of all sorts of. hobgoblin antics, such as
are gleaned from nursery lore or the re
ality of a childish dream. ' This experi
ence was enhanced by the Brownies act
ine entirely in pantomime. There were
nearly thirty of them, little people with
fat stomachs, gaily costumed, and flit
ting among each other with a central
purpose, yet no concerted manner of at
taining it. Once only after the arrival
chorus did they use their voices, the
Brownies at singing school, but the
combined product of sound, as might
have been expected, was a Babel - of
noise, yet not noisy, no two having the
same key or saying the same words, if
indeed they were words at all. Very
comical was the Brownies at the polls,
imitating the action of their elders with
all "their earnestness and conflicting in
terests. ...;.' .. . . ,, ;

of the Brownies were very satisfactorily
given. Especially worthy of comment
were the boIos by Miss Aldrich, the eu
