On Tuesday, April 26th, the Chronicle
Publishing Company will give to its pa
trons a morning paper instead ot the
evening edition. The necessity of a
morning paper that would take Asso
ciated Press dispatches and appear so
the patrons could read It at the break
fast table, has long been felt in our city,
and at last we have decided to issue
such a publication. Ou account of the
struggle- in which this country and Spain
are about to be involvedat present it is
all the more necessary to receive the
latest news at any price, aud we ask
that the generous people of this section
will assist us In this effort by their pa
tronage. There will be no evening pa
per issued and the paper will be pub
lished every morning except Monday,
and we will have it out in time so that.
It can be sent on the stages leaving tho
city ; also on tho early morning trains.
This will be an Inducement for people
along the stage lines to eubserjbe for the
Daily Oukgnicxk, and we trust we will
receive a liberal patronage from them,

The war' with Spain is now practically
an assured lact. wtiat tne outcome
will bo is fully decided in the minds of
all Americans, and the Spanish citizens
seem to have high hopes of the success
of Spanish arms. There is one thing
sure, however, that our army will not
consist of discouraged, dissatisfied, poor
ly-paid and miserably-fed soldiers; but
will be made up of volunteers who go to
fight on the principle of patriotism, and
to avenge the murder of our sailor boys,
who were engaged in the discharge of a
lawlul, peaceblo mission at the time of
their taking off. The Dalles has as
many patriotic citizens as. any one lo

a wooden gun or beanshooter to 'fight the
