The attempt was unsuccessful, but the
safe was almost ruined. The combina

denture made in the door. The hinge
was alfo tampered with. The crime
was not noticed by officers, as the time
was propitious for all kinds of explo
sions, and nothing was thought of it,
being the 4th of July.

from the Columbia river, but' is 600 feet

tourists, is one of the pleasautest of sum

Birgfeld it is a thousand per cent more
preferable than Trout lake. Gear lake
is well stocked with. fish and is a cool,
wooded resort, with scenic attractions
second to none. No one has ever
boomed it, but it might easily be made
a very profitable summer resort. A
hotel would be well patronized through

THE GLORIOUS FOURTH.
It Was Celebrated In The Dalles by the
Citizens Leaving Town.
The Fourth of July was not celebrated
in The Dalles, and the moat of our citi
zens went out into the country and at
various points along the river for an out
ing on the nation's birthday. The
largest number went to Hood River, but
many went to Mosier, Bonneville and
the Locks, seeking quiet and shade.
rather than celebration and noise.
Many, also, went to Dufur, the wagon
ette and hacks brought into use, but the
attraction of the river trip and the band
influenced far the gieater share to take
the Regulator. .
The principal celebration of the day
was at Hood River, probably as many
as 300 citizens of The Dalles taking the
Regulator for that beautiful vicinity.

band gave a concert on the street, fol

Some one set fire to Herrick'e cannery
this morning, but it was fortunately dis
covered in time to check it before any
damage was done. About 3 o'clock a
Chinaman sitting on the walk in front of
Maetz & Pundt'a saloon observed the
blaze and about the same time an alarm
waa turned in from "106," First street.
The electric light company was phoned
to, and a man dispatched to report the
blaze. Mr. said that the fire was out.
This was easily accomplished with
with a small hose from the cannery, and
the fire department was not summoned.
It is inconceivable why . any
one should wish to burn the cannery.
There is little enough business going on
these times to win money from trade,
and even the anarchist should realize
the imbecility of destroying any of the
few industries which yet exist to put
money in circulation.
JACKSON GULICK DROWNED.
Ho Falls From a Fish Tf heel Into the
Current of the Columbia. '
The cruel Columbia has shallowed up
another victim. Jackson Gulick, aged
about 30 years, was drowned early yes
terday morning at his father's fish
wheel. Some drift had floated in the
wheel and he prepared to get it out.
Among the drift there was a log that
had floated in, which , he proposed to
snare with a rope. For this purpose he
stepped upon a brace, which was thought
to be secure, but which gave way be
neath hia weight, having been probably
loosened by the floating drift. He fell
through and into the current, which
rapidly carried him onward and into a
whirlpool, when he sank, never to rise
again in life. His father had to witness
the agonizing spectacle unable to lift a
hand in aid of his drowning boy. The
young man must have been injured
when he first sank, for he seemed dazed
when he appeared on the surface the
first time, and' though a good swimmer,
made no effort to swim.
The scene of the drowning was at the
fish wheel owned by his father', which is
the first above The Dalles. It is placed
just above 3-Mile rapids, through which
Jackson Gulick passed.. The body has
not been recovered.
