Although we are not champions o:

behalf of humanity we must say that
there are a number ot boys and young

but brutes. Laying aside all opinions
on the Chinese question, these men go

more than to satisfy his brutal nature.
Parents who know their boys do such
things as this, and do not endeavor to
put a stop to it, are without doubt worse
than their offspring, and deserve pun

THE FOOTBALL GAME.

The "False of New York.'
"Built to Amuse," is the catch line of
this season's .version ' of the "Palse of
New York," which is to -be at the Vogt
opera house Monday, January 3rd.
The play has always been a great
favorite with theater-goers, and this, its
seventh consecutive year, promises to be
as great a hit as it was its first.' To keep
abreast with the demands of the times,
the entire play has been liberally en
ameled, and tbe second act, the "Bow
ery dive," is entirely devoted to high
class vaudeville features. In this act
twelve specialties are introduced, prom
inent among which are :
Wm. H. Lang, singing and dancing
comedian, laBt year principal comedian
of Hanlon's "Superba" ; Stella.Mahew
mimic and story teller ; the wonderful
Thompson tots, Lilian 5 years, Ethel 3
years ; Madge Matland, phenomenal
female baritone singer ; H. V. Band
Hey Rube ; Edgar Way, comedy sketch
artist ; Gotham quartette and others.
Arrangements have been made by the
Dalles football team to play a matched
game on next Saturday, New Year's day,
with Fred Merril'a Ramblers of Port
land. Our boys are practicing all they
possibly can, and as they have a good
team, an interesting game will be put
up.r The 6nly thing mat is against
em is the number of new players
that they have in their team, which, ow
ing to the fact that they have not had
sufficient time for practice, will some
what weaken the Dalles line up.
The game will be held at the fair
grounds about 2 o'clock Saturday after
noon, and as it is but seldom that such
an interesting one can be witnessed at
this place, there is little doubt that every
one who possibly can will attend.
