The Dufur Dispatch has the following
kind words for our city : "The Dalles is
the most important wool mart on the
Pacific coast. It is the center of a wool
and stock business for two hundred
miles round about. . Even the wool
growers of Washington haul their prod
uct right by stations on the Northern
Pacific railway seventy-five or eighty
miles into Tke Dalles. Over 4,000,003
pounds of wool -are now in the ware
houses there, and as much more is ex
pected to arrive." ','
It has been agreed upon between Supt.
Troy Shelley and .C. L. Gilbert, supeiin
tendent-elect, to hold a normal insti
tute at The Dalles, beginning July 13th
and continuing four weeks. Besides the
common -school studies,' instruction will
be given in such of the higher' branches
of study as shall be decided upon later
on. This will be a rare opportunity for
all those now engaged in the, profession
of teaching or preparing for the same.
Further information will be given about
board and rooms. . . .
A Perilous Adventure.
Geo. C Walker passed through Celilo
rapids yesterday in a steamer forty feet
long, and tied up his boat at the mess
house above the- dalles rapid a. He is in
the city today and saw Capt. Waud,
whose opinion he is soliciting as to
whether he can pass over-the dalles in
the boat with any degree of safety. - The
'captain will go in the morning and
make an inspection. Mr. Walker says
it looks at present as though the swell
at the dalles is about thirty feet high.
The owner of the craft has come in it all
the way from Lewiston, making the. dis
tance in thirty hours. The first eighty
miles was made in five hours. It is a
stern wheel steamer furnished with two
engines and a 175-lb" boiler. He wants
to take ' the boat to Portland and sell it.
The most perilous part of his trip was in
Snake river canyon, where he says .while
passing through some rapids the boat
stood up nearly on end, as it dashed
down a steep place into a whirlpool at
an elbow of the river.' Opinion is di
vided as to what will become of the boat
at the dalles. Some believe It will be
whirled underneath and never appear
on the surface again. 1

lowing grand musical program for the

WAR IN THE-AIR.'. '"-
The Dalles Militia Company Prepared
. to Lese at an flfiar'a Kotftce.-
There is an air of suppressed excite'
ment in militia circles at the present
time, and the boys are on the qui vive
of anticipation over the Astoria troubles
Little can be learned .from either officers
or men, owing to the secrecy which
is enjoined upon them from head
quarters, but this much is known, that
they have received orders toibold them
selves in 'readiness at an hour's ' notice.
As another -evidence that the atmos
phere is strongly impregnated with, the
martial spirit, it may be observed
that the orders expected to have
been issued early in the w'eek for
the encampment at Hood River on the
23d, have -not been -issued. It is also
known that the officers here ' have for
warded guns and ammunition to other
companies of this battalion, The Dalles
being the supply point. ' Levi Chrisman.
captain of Co. G, yesterday received a
Bupply of' webbed cartridge belts, and it
is probable that he has orders ' to supply
the same to all the companies. Al
together it 'would not ' be surprising if
the assemble call Should be sounded on
our streets at any time. The situation
at Astoria is now very tense. Many
murders have already been committed,
and the time has come whe'n some effort
must be made on the part of the state'
to prevent loss of life and property. If
a'call to arms is made, it is possible a
special train would start- from .'Baker
City, picking up the militia companies
on the way. ' '
