much has been said in The Chronicle,
is situated about thirty miles east of
Prineville on the Ochoco. The owners
have recently purchased a sawmill

the work. It is the only known mine of
value in that region, though others will
be sought with the assured success of

He is a good musician and his talk was
enlivened by Populist songs and music
on the organ. His speech was enter

and anecdote. : He charged that consid
erable corruption had found its way In
to both old parties, but very little in
Populist party. . The money ques
tion occupied the greatest share of his
time. He first spoke of paper money
being the best in the world, and later
made the same assertion as regarding

Some Good Suggestions.
Washington. April 24. Senator Mc-
Bride has secured a provision appropri
ating $50,000 for continuing the work at
the Cascades, $20,000 of which shall be
used for extending the walls of the lock,
so that it may be opened for commerce.
The appropriotion is intended to secure
the building of another lock.
Editor CHBONicxE-rrThe above clip
ping from the Oregonian of April 26th
shows that our delegation is at work and
have not forgotten us, and we should be
thankiul for all favors, large or small ;
but for the sake of suffering humanity,
don't try and build another lock. The
two that 'are started have been In pro
gress for twenty-six years, and we can't
wait eighteen years more. But I would
suggest to Senator McBride that If we
must have another one, to try and se
cure the right of way on the other side
of the river and work them so as to sup
ply Day Bros, and all U. S. engineers
who are out of employment.
I would like to call the attention of
Capt. Fisk to the contract of the Day
Bros, and ask if It is completed. Please
let us know what is lacking.' I ask this
to find out what all of these men now
at work are doing. Last fall I visited
the locks and there were about 75 Or
100 men -at work and I was informed
that they were so nearly ovpleted that
the main force -had been discharged.
Certainly there can be no complaint of
'thigh water; yet what is the matter?

Would it not be better for Senator
McBride to ask for a committee of in

Lecture Tomorrow Nltbt.
The committee of arrangements for the
lecture course regret that Judge Mc-
Arthur being unable to come and fill
that part of the program .. assigned to
him, they could not arrange for this
lecture bv Hon. B. B. Beekman on "Our
Martyred President and Statesman,"
to be delivered April 15th, and thus
commemorate reverently the event that
threw gloom over the civilized world
The month in which that tragedy took
place has not yet expired. This time
thirty-one years ago eyes blinded with
tears were scarce beginning 1 to see a rift
in the clouds. It is fitting then for us
who would not forget our rich and ter
rible legacy as a nation to remember
this event as a sacred time. The in
creasingly immense Lincoln literature,
now in the hands of the entire reading
public, makes this more ' formal tribute
to his memory especially reasonable.
The lecture will take place tomorrow
evening at the Congregational church.
In The Dalles, Sunday, April 26th, to
the wife of R. A. Spivy, a son.
I wish to announce to the dealers and
the smoking public that I am now
manufacturing strictly first-class cigars
in The Dalles and am here to stay. I
use nothing but the finest imported
stock and can compete successfully with
Eastern and imported goods, because
the import duty and freight is much less
on raw material than it is on manu
factored goods. My eighteen years ex
perience makes me duly qualified to
select the finest stock, on which my suc
cess depends. My "Regulator" . brand
is made by hand of Havana tobacco
grown in the famous . Vuelta . Abajo dis
trict of Cuba ; there is nothing finer in
the world. Call for the "Regulator."
It is a good thing, push it along.

NOTED EVANGELIST COMING.
A Proposition to Hold Union SerTlces
for Ten Days.
Rev. J. H. Wood has been in corres
pondence with a noted evangelist who
has been ' touring the country for the
past twelve years, Chas. N. Crittenton
by name, with the object in view of se
curing him for The Dalles, It was only
by prompt and energetic work that a
promise was given Mr. Wood by Mr.
Crittenton to come to The Dalles for ten
days, as Portland was working heroic
ally to secure him, and this was contin
gent upon all the churches of the city
uniting in a union service, and foregoing
for that length of time all other meetings
Mr. Crittenton was a New York mil
lionaire, who became so much interest
ed in gospel work that he gave up his
business to engage in it.' The Florence
mission of New York City was estab
lished and endowed by Mr. Crittenton.
This is a home for-fallen women, and
the mission bears the name of his daugh
ter. It is a great power for good in New
York, and reaches 'and benefits all
classes of people. . For - twelve years
Mr. Crittenton has been on the road.
He has a car fitted up, which is known
as the "gospel car." , Two other evan
gelists and a good vocalist to lead the
singing accompany him. Meetings are
now going on in La Grande. May 12th
is the date proposed for the beginning of
the ten ' days' session in The Dalles.
The other ministers, so far as known,
have fallen in readily with the plan for
a grand onion meeting, ana arrange
ments will be made to secure a proper
hall for the meetings. .
