The only difference between imported
cigars and the Regulator brand is in the
price. The duty on raw material is
much less than it is on the finished

RUSSIA AS IT IS.

This community , is indebted to Rev.
Mr. Wood and the ladies of the M. E.
church for. an entertainment out . of the
ordinary line, which in-'store tonight
for the knowledge-seekers, as well as
amusement-loving people of onr city.
Description of Russian life, habits, cus
toms and form of government of the
Russian people, by an educated na
tive of the far-away land, of which we
have read so much, but regarding which
so few Americans have any personal
knowledge. We all know that during
the late war the staunch friendship of
that country had a very restraining in
fluence upon the French and English
view of the situation, and about the
splendidly equipped Russian fleet in the
harbor of New York at a critical period
of those four years of national peril.
backing up in an effective way the ad
motion "Hands off!" never put in
words, but most fully understood by all
the nations of the earth.. France and
England were anxious to recognize the
Southern Confederacy, and there can be
but little ..doubt that' that desire would
have led,to complications at a time' when
our government -as particularly desir
ous of avoiding anything of thtj kind,
had it not been for the valuable services
of Alsxander II.
Dr. Gregory De kannet, the distin
guished Russian-trailer and journalist,
who will entertain and instruct the peo
ple of Tne Dalles tonight at the M. E.
church, regards Russia from -the stand
point of a patriot, and hence what he
has to say on the subject differs greatly
from what has been heretofore placed
before the thinking world by nihilistic
mediums or by George Kennan ' and
other fire breathing and sensation hunt
ing writers who, by. the way, knowing
onr weak spot.'our. desire for .everything
more or less sensational, are exaggerat
ing everything for the, sake of the al
mighty' dollar. Hence only tne dark
Hide of Russian life and institutions have
been hitherto presented, and Dr. De
Kannet ' proposes to lift the veil and
show the land of the czr as it Teally is.
It is unpardonable not to have a more
of less correct and absolutely right
knowledge of one of the greatee nations
of the world, its history,' geographical
position, life, customs, habits, etc. One
of the easiest and most pleasant ways to
obtain tbis know'edge is to attend Dr.
De Kannet's illustrated 'entertainment
and lecture tonight at the M. E. church.
Though yet a comparative young man,
Dr. De Kennet has been a great trav
eler, having been already twice around
the world. He is a graduate of the Im
perial University of Moscow. Russia,
has a scholarly command of English,
and is quite as fluent in four other lan
guages, besides Latin and Greek. One
great charm of his lectures, as was ex
pressed by Professor Pratt of San Fran
cisco to a Chronicle reporter, is. the en
tire absence of a striving after elocution
ary or anything stagey. His entire in

The Impertinent Days.. ' .
J. G. and I. JJ.' Day .were up' today In
their steam launch, the Sadie B. Their
attitude toward the people of The Dalles
was very offensive, and they were . es
pecially incensed at thex action of The
Dalles papers. With the contractors
was an individual named .Percy, who it
was hinted is a government inspector,
but the Days were so 'very vigilant over
his person that no one succeeded in hav
ing a private conversation with him,
apart from the 'presence of either J."
G. or l. N. Day. The Times-Mountaineer
man saw the senior Day and a very
animated conversation ensued.' .While
assuring him that they cared nothing
for the opinions of our -citizens, Mr.
Douthit in turn assured Mr. Day that
The Dalles people cared very little for
the Days, and that The Dalles papers
would continue the battle until the locks
were pounded open. It will take con
siderable more than the champagne in
Mr. Day's private locker to mnzzle the
press ' of Tne Dalles. No. satisfaction
was given the newspaper man whatever,
and all leading questions were avoided.
Mr. Day impertinently said, among
other things, thaf Eastern .Oregon
needed no locks; she bad. nothing to
ship when she got them. '
Why It Takes 2000 Years to Complete
The entertainment of the Rathbone
Sisters last evening' was one of the most
enjoyable in the life of the order. - The
program of eeven numbers involved the
scoring of points. The side led by Mrs.
Bradsbaw scored 280 and lost 60. The
loss was occasioned by . the guessing of
the original conundrum, "Why will it
take 2000 years to finish the -locks?"
After pnzzling three minutes over the
question the correct answer was forth
coming: "Because it takes two Days to
build them, and the Scriptures tell us
'One day is as a thousand years.' "
