DETAILS OF THE CELEBRATION
Continued from third page.
Lord or some other of Oregon's leading
citizens would be present to respond,
bat they were not here, for reasons beat
known to themselves.
Fortunately Mr. N. B. Brooks, one of
Goldendale's brightest attorneys, was on
the stage, and though the task was un
expected, when called upon by Mayor
Menefee he made such a response that
those who had the pleasure of hearing
bim, were glad that Oregon's greatest,
were not there.
At the close of Mr. Brooks' remarks,
Gov. Moody gave a brief history of the
locks from her inception, and then the
vast crowd adjourned to the Umatilla
House to partake of the more solid re
freshments. Arrangements for seating
300 at the tables had been made, and
though the chairs had been filled and
emptied three times, vet there were
other hundeeds to be fed.
At the Baldwin, in the meanwhile,
the grand ball was in progress, and only
as the morning dawned did the crowd
Thus passed the celebration of the
opening of the locks, and that within a
few years we may be again called upon
to celebrate the removal of obstructions
to navigation above this city, is the
earnest and hearty wish of every citizen
of this section.
AFTER NOTES OK THE CELEBRATION.
The immense plate glass windows of
A. M. Wiiliams fc Co. afford a splendid
opportunity for decorating, and last
night they were certainly things oi
Pease & Mays had a handsome and
uniqa3 window ornament in the shape
of a deep sea freighting steamer. It wrs
the work of Ernest Jensen, and was
really a work of art.' The other windows
were beautifully draped and decorated.
Herbring's windows reflected the ex
cellent taste of whoever arranged the
burning and other decorations.
The Umatilla House last night broke
rtbe record for handling a large crowd,
-over 900 being served. Only the weari
..ness of the ladies who assisted in wait
- ing on the guests, prevented as many
,. jmore being fed.
Our citizens may well feel proud of the
way our business men decorated their
stores. Lack of space alone prevents,
individual mention as there were many
v beautiful things worthy of it.
Ve have substituted a brief histoiy of
"the locks in place of editorial. The im
portance of the subject, as well as the
tired feeling of the editor, were the
causes therefor. v
Some persons who wrote letters of re
gret at their inability to attend the cele
bration here yesterday evening, after
all came near being here in time. They
came up on the 10:45 train last night.
V G Cotcpany made a handsome addi
ction to the parade, and the boys of Bat
tery A provoked favorable comment on
their soldierly appearance.
Col. Patterson' was among those who
sacrificed bis desires to the good cause
and remained at home to assist in per
fecting the details of the evening's exer
Among the pleasantest things of the
celebration were the songs by the Boyer
quartet of Portland, who favored the
crowd better at the locks and at the
Umatilla House with some beautiful

Practically complete returns from all
counties of Oregon, except five, give Mc-
Kinley a plurality of 3156. .
No returns have been receivel from
Crook, Curry, Lake, Grant and II rney
counties. Crook county will ii: d nbt
edly show a majority i f 100 for .icKin-
ley, while Harney, Grant and Curry
combined will probably give Bryan a
majority of 300, which will leave Mc
Kinley's plurality in the state about
Clackamas has run her plurality for
McKinley up to 290, Ciatsop will give
more than 700, Marion still etands at
about 400, Morrow is good for 61, and
Washington for 500.
Polk, Douglas and Josephjne are for
Bryan by small pluralities, and Union,
Jackson and Linn give him large plu
ralities. The Ideal Fanacea.
James L. Francis, Alderman, Chicago,

covery as an Ideal Panacra for roughs,
colds and Lung Complaints, having used
it in my family for the last five years,
to the exclusion of physician's prescrip
tions or other preparations."
Rev. John Burgns, Keokuk, Iowa,
writes: "1 have been a Minister of the
Methodist Episcopal church for 50 years
or more, and have never found anything
so beneficial, or that gave me such speedy
relief as Dr. King's New Discovery."

AN EXPENSIVE DINNER.
It Cost at the Rate of Seven Hundred Dot
lars a I'late.
"History of the cuisine fairly teems
with descriptions of costly meals,' re
marked a resident of Brooklyn recent
ly to a writer lor the V ashing-ton Star.
'We read how that profligate Helio
gabalus. the Roman emperor, had a
sing-le dish on his table once that cost
two hundred thousand dollars, and how
anoiner Koman, Aelin Verus, guve a
supper to a dozen cronies that cost a
quarter of a million dollars. Then
Vitellius, still another Roman and an
emperor, likewise entertained his
brother at a little smack that used up
a couple of hundred thousand; but
these were ancient fellows, who had
nightingales' tongues and humming
birds' brains and similar marvelous
dainties. Coming1 down to modern days
and plain, ordinary, everyday ham and
egg's, I ate a supper once in this very
town that cost a friend of mine four
teen hundred dollars. A gentleman
named Parker kept an establishment
devoted to entertaining gentlemen at
sundry g-ames of chance. One night
the friend I speak of and myself were
killing an evening here together, when
we conceived the idea that a visit to
Parker's would be just the thing. We
put it into execution at once. I have
never gambled in my life, and my
friend has not done it since. We went
upstairs and entered the room just as
supper was announced. My friend did
not want to eat anything, hut I was
hungry, and when some plausible ras
cal of a dealer told me that there was
broiled Smithfield ham flanked with
pullets' eggs as a sort of iside issue to
the otherwise gorpeous feast I broke
for the supper room, despite my com
panion's pleadings. Of course he fol
lowed me when he found his protesta
tions were useless, and we enjoyed the
feed immensely. When we came out
my friend pulled out a twenty-dollar
bill and said he would play a turn or
two to pay for our supper. I begged
him in turn not to do it, but he was as
obdurate as I had bean. He lost his
twenty-dollar bill and tried to get it
back. In two hours fourteen hundred
dollars were gone glimmering. 1 have
never felt so downright hungry since
that a slight request from a mere ac
quaintance cannot keep me away from
a deau-head feed.
A Leagthy ConrtHhip.
A courtship remarkable for its length
is that of Abram Maris, aged CO years
and Miss Sarah 13. Williams, aged 57
vears. and ths scene is Damascus, a
quaint little Quaker village of Ken
tucky. Ikth bride and groom are
among the wealthiest members of the
Society of Friends in that state, and
for 40 j'ears met each other on Sunday
at the old brick church in their quaint
village. The attachment between tihem
began when Miss Williams was a rosy
cheeked girl of 17, but the only love
making was a smile and a minute'scon
versation at the church door once, a
week, year in and year out.

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gener
ally needed when the Iangnid, exhausted
feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid
and sluggish and the need of a tonic and
land alterative is felt. A prompt nee of
this medicine has often averted long and
perhaps fatal bilious fevers. No medi
cine will act more eureiy counteracting
and freeing the system from the malar
ial poison. Headache, Indigestion, Con
stipation, Dizziness yield to Electric Bit

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. . Hall's Catarrh
Care is taken inLernaily, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the foun
dation of the disease, and giving the
patient strength by building up the con
stitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. . Send for list of
