canned and jarred ; vegetables of all
kinds, bops, wool, fish, wood and min

office of The Dalles Commission Co.,

Will Not Be first.
If Mr. Parrot of Goldendale succeeds
in making bis airship navigable, he will
not be the first, according to a dispatch
from Victoria. A. W. Vowell, superin
tendent of Indian affairs for British
Columbia at that place, received two re
ports from Robert Loring, bis agent at
Hazelton, near the head of the Skeena
river, of the passing of a balloon over
that far northern part on July 3d, the
airship traveling north and being seen
first during the day by an Indian boy
and later in the early evening, when it
displayed a light, by a party of prorpect
ore nnder tbe'guidance of Chief Gbail, of
the Kitspioux. The balloon is evident
ly the same that passed- over Winnipeg
on July let, but whose it is and whence
it came is yet an unfathomed mystery. .
