distance from shore and be had to swim

attorneys on each side, who possessed
the faculty, highly developed, of bother-ing-each
other and delaying proceedings
in the true style. The jury brought in
a verdict on the eecorjd ballot of guilty.
The case was, of course, promptly ap

Next Saturday evening a Leap Year

to all friends and members of neighbor
Hilton and Dollle Nobles.
Milton and Doilie Nobles represent a
type of plays, intensely American, of
which they easily stand at the head.
"The Phcenix," the oldest and ever
popular of Mr. Nobles' creations, is one
that will never die. "From Sire to Son"
soon attained a fame as wide, as did
"Love and Law." Others of his plays
(they are all good) are "A Man of the
People," "A Son of Thespis" and "For
Revenue Only." All have thrilling
pluts and abound in humor, pathos and
The fame of Milton Nobles is as broad
as tne continent. He has justly been
christened "the representative Ameri
can player and playwright." He has
bid scores of imitators, bat no rivals in
his sphere. He . writes exclusively
American plaj s, dealing with native
themes, and pregnant with tangible
types of American character.' In the
field of dramatic literature he may be
said to have created a sphere of his own.
Both as an actor and writer he has been
the founder of a school. He has written
jplavs that will survive the author, which
cannot be said of all native playwrights.

'The Unwritten Law." It will soon be
roduced in San Francisco, and will

ing success of his career.

The election in The Dalles today has
been very animated, and it is probable
a larger vote will be polled than ever be
fore. Early this rooming a number of
persons were seen wearing Bennett rib
bons, and later a circular letter was dis
tributed from Northup, the Oregonian
candidate for congress. ' In many res
pects the election today is a personal
canvass, which cannot but result in n
great number of scratched tickets. The
chief local fights are being made ou
county judge, bheriff and clerk. For
the other county o Bices it is believed the
party ticket will generally be followed
by the respective adherents.
Nothing is obtainable upon which to
base a prediction for a single name on
the ticket. The strong fight; which is
being made for Bennett, and a local
pride which exists because of his resi
dence in The Dalles, might give him a
plurality. Otherwise Ellis would have
received a majority. Quinn will poll a
larger vote than has been generally con
ceeded. East Dalles precinct polled 162 votes
by 2 o'clock. Several illegal voters at
tempted to caet ballots, but the most of
them were prevented by competent
challengers.' The judges here were R.
E. Williams, John Adams and John
Blaser. Clerks, D. Parish, and John I
Taylor, Deputy sheriff, B. H. Thurston.
The challengers were Jack Elton and D.
. In the other precincts there seemed to
be no regular challengers. The polls in
Bigelow precinct were held at Wm. Mi
chell's undertaking establishment. At
2:30 there were 133 votes polled. The
judges were John Cates, S. B. Adams
and J. M. Huntington. Clerks, Ed Pat
terson and D. C. Herrin.
The county court room was the poll
ing place in Trevitt precinct. At 2:45
o'clock there were 147 votes polled.
The judges were J. L. Story, C. E. Bay
ard and N. H. Gates. Clerks, Geo.
Gihons and Roger Sinnott.
West Dalles polled 177 votes by 3
o'clock. Tnis polling Tlace would make
a fine summer resort, but when the
chilling blasts of November whistle
through the chink holes of the old City
Mills building, it will be decidedly un
comfortable. The judges are J. M.

' A Death at tne Cascades.
Re port 8 from the upper country are
conflicting as to the probable stage
of water in the Columbia this season.
Ranchers who have come from the up
per country report a small snowfall,
whi'e miners claim the opposite. No
prediction has yet been 6ent from Port
land. . The river this morning registered
28.6 feet. To equal the height of 1894
it mast rise S3.4 feet, or over a foot a
day for thirty days, which is a very re
mote possibility and entirely improba
ble. For the 24 hoars previous to 6
o'clock this morning the river rose two
feet. At Umatilla the river rose six
inches yesterday, which means a rise of
one foot here tomorrow. XJnasually high
Coroner Butts was called to the Cas
cades Saturday .to bold an inquest over
the remains of Wra. C. King. The re
port of the grand jury contains the es
sential facta which are as follows:
We, the undersigned, the jury dnly
empanelled by W. H. Butts, coroner of
Wasco county, Oregon, to' inquire into
the case of the death of the body now
before us after bearing all th testimony
of the different witnesses - called and
sworn by eaid coroner find as follows :
That the name of said deceased was
Wm. C. King, of about the age of 63
years, and .came to this country from
Marlborough, Mass.; that he had no
known relatives in this state so far as
known and was a single man. That the
cause of his death was from an acci
dental fall off of bridge No. 73, in the
eastern portion of Cascade Locks, said
bridge belonging to the O. B. & N. Co.,
which resulted in the death of said de
ceased ; that said deceased came to his
death as above indicated, on the 29th
day ' of May, 1896, falling from said
bridge between the houre of 2 and 8
o'clock p. m., the exact time of which is
not now known, but from the testimony
of the witnesses we believe that said ac
cident happened about 3 o'clock p. m. of
said day. And in conclusion we find
that no blame attaches to any person as
the cause of said death, but that the
death of said deceased was purely acci
dental and could not be avoided and
caused either through his infirmity or
