The thanks of the committee ou ar
rangements are due to Lieut. Clark and
his detachment of men from Battery A,

the celebration, and also to the Shaver

furnished free transportation to the men
and officers of the Battery.
Ths result in Oregon of Tuesday's elec
tion, as far as the same is known, gives
McKinley 45,442 and Bryan 43,050.
Harney, Malheur, Curry, and Crook
counties are yet to bear from, and these,
while they may, and probably will, re-
dace McKinley's present majority of
2,392 to 1,500, have not sufficient votes
to alter the result.
It any doubt that Tbe Dalies is now a

sturgeon piled on the walk at the ex
press office daily. These fish are sent
East, dried and salted, and packed with
alternate layers of codfish and sent out
to market in bloekfi under the brand of
"boneless tod," so that among the ex
ports of this city may be classed as an
important one that of codfish.
William Cederson Killed.
The funeral of William Cederfon took
place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from
the undertaking rooms of Wm. Michell.
Deceased was a member of the K. of P.
and Redmen, and was buried with the
simple, bat imppressive, ceremonies of
those orders. Tbe floral tributes were
very beautiful, one especially being con
spicuous among all tbe rest, it was a
handsome shield, the tribute of the Red

seems he had just finished supper and
was on his way to bis lodging place,
when the accident occurred. He was
standing by the track waiting for tbe
train to pull by, when for some cause
one of the cars jumped the track derail
ing and overturning four others. Th-
cars turned to the north of the track,
but a truck jumped out on the south
side, striking Mr. Cederson fairly and
bearing bim with it, forced him against
a huge bowlder, killing ' him instantly.
The force of the blow rolled the huge
stone over, and tbe body was found
crushed under it. He was a good citi
zen, a steady industrious man, and

nephew, besides many friends, to mournl

DETAILS OF THE CELEBRATION.
Boats Came Through, and Crowds
Were There to See.
Thursday, Nov. 5th, 1896, will ever be
a red-letter-day in the history of The
Dalles. The weather- was sirs ply per
fect, the sky cloudless, the air bracing,
with a suggest io a of frostiness that
coupled with the glad event sent the
blood tinkling throngh artery and vein.
By 9 o'clock the boat was crowded al
most to tbe limit of her carrying ca
pacity, and on the wharf and the beach
was on enthusiastic crowd ot 3,uuv or
more cheering citizsns, many of whom
later made the trip to the Locks by
fain. At 9 :30"the last passenger was on
board, and with waving hats and hand
kerchiefs, ' ringing cheers and tooting
whistles, the good steamer Regulator
pulled out from the wharf and turned
her prow down stream, to, for 'the first
time, meet and greet her consort of the
lower river. Mt. Hood, covered with
new fallen snow, seemed, as a passenger
remarked, "to have put on a clean shirt
and fixed op for the occasion." The
stirring music furnished by our mag
nificent band echoed and re-echoed from
the wooded hills that guard and guide
Columbia's mighty tide. Down by
Memaloose, with streaming banners.
the engines drove tbe keen prow through
tbe blue waters. A thing a life and
energy, in strange contrast with the
silent sand-strewn island of the dead : a
vivid comparison with the times when
those who now sleep silent and forgot
ten, were sole masters of the' rbighty
stream. Landings were made at Lyle,
when Mr. Whitcomb and others were
taken on board, at Hood River, where
Mayor L. N. Blowers, accompanied by
the city council. Hon. E. L. Smith and
others joined the crowd; at White
Salmon, at Underwood's, where Amos
Underwood, a pioneer settler of Ska
mania county, and one who was at the
Lock 8 at the time' of the Indian mas
sacre there, came, the especially in
vited guest of the D. P. & A. N. Co. At
about 1 o'clock the Regulator reached
the Locks, and her passengers soon
swelled the crowd already arrived from
The Dalles City had left Portland at 7
o'clock, made seven landings and
reached the Locks at just oood, the best
time ever made on the run. The Sarah
Dixon had also arrived with a full com
plement of passengers from Portland.
Everything was in readiness by 2
o'clock, only the non-arrival of the
Harvest Queen, causing any delay. It
is estimated that fully 5,000 .people were

About 3 :30, to the tooting ofjwhistles the
Dalles City took the post of honor,
leading the way into the lock, where
the Sadie B., the little steamer belong
ing to the Day Bros., awaited them. In
turn, the Sarah Dixon and Harvest
Queen moved in, tbe lower gates were
closed, tbe sluices opened,' and ' in 15
minutes th lock was full, the hydraulic
engines swung tbe big upper gate open

of the Upper Columbia. As the Dixon
pulled through a detail from Battery A,
O. N. G., fired a salute of twenty-one
guns. The Harvest Queen bulr-came
through far enough to again greet the
waters of the Middle Columbia; where
ber keel first struck the water, and then
turned and steamed back again.
Captain Fisk, who has .charge of the
works, Civil Engineer Morris and
Messrs. J. G. and I. N. Day seemed. to

At 4:30 tbe steamers pulled out for
The Dalles, and half an hour later tbe
train followed,, loaded with citizens of
tbe Inland Empire, who long ago bad
despaired of seeing the sight they bad
just witnessed. At 7 :45'the boats swept
round the point of rocks, and in a few
moments were lying side by side at the
D. P. & A. N. wharf. Everybody and
everybody else was there to see. Klick
itat and Sherman counties had sent
large delegations, and Wasco was repre
sented by at least half her citizens.
The parade formed at 8:15 and headed
by the troop of mounted men, followed
the line of parade laid . down for it.
Along the line of parade every bouse was
illuminated, and down Second street the
windows of our! business houses were
beautifully decorated and aglow' with
electric lights. For balf a dozen blocks
tbe streets were aflame with the gleam
of colored lights that burned until tbe
last man in the procession had passed.
Arriving Kt the Vogt Grand, the im
mense building was filled to its utmost
capacity before one-half the vast assem
blage had entered. On the stage were
seated a number of prominent citizens
of Klickitat, Sherman and Wasco coun
ties, and withont delay Mayor Menefee
introduced Hon. John Michell of this
city, who, after drawing a vivid pictu'e
of the future of the Inland Empire, ex
tended iu eloquent sentences a hearty
welcome to our visitors.
