A force of ship carpenters was at work
Sunday on the steamer Dalles City, of
the D. i'. & A. N., for which a new hull
is building at Snpple'e yard in Portland.
The river is falling rapidly, and it is de
sirable that the boat should be launched
as -soon as possible. The finishing
touches were beinz put to the hull and
it is hoped that she can be got into the
water by tomorrow or Thursday. The'
new hull is longer than the old one was
and the house has been cnt in two, and
a piece inserted. The boilers and ma
chinery have been overhauled and pnt
in first-class order, and tho Dalles City
will be practically a new boat when she
goes into service ngain.
A large number of Dalles people took
advantage of the exlremely cheap rates
to go to points along tho O. R. & N. be
tween this place and Multnomah Falls
Sunday, and nearly all who went were
delighted with the coolness of the
weather at Bonneville and Mulinomah
in comparison to the disagreeable warm
weather we had in The Dalles. On ac
count of the large number of through
passengers on the 5:20 train many of .
the excursionists had trouble in finding
eeate. This, however, was the only dis
agreeable feature of the day and there
promises to be a call for extra cars to
cirry thtsJ who will go next Sunday. "

R. A. Miller, which will be responded
to by Governor-elect T. T. Geer. Camp
ers have been on the grounds for a day
or two, and the management reports
more applicants for tent Epace than
ever before. Ground Manager Cross
and his assistants have been busy locat
ing camping parties for several days
past. There is no charge for camping
epace or privileges, a season ticket being
all that is required. Campers can get
everything the market affords delivered
on the grounds at usual rates. The
water supply is pumped from the mid-:
die of the Clackamas river, and is dis
tributed bj mains to all parts of the
grounds. The program this year will

A LEAF FROM THE PAST.
Urlf Chamberlain, of Goldendale.
Jolcea at the Kipeced Fall of
Yesterday morning the little sou of A.
A. Jayne met with an accident that
might have proven fatal, but which,
from preeent indications, will not have
any eerions results.
It appears that a young man
named Bayard, who is selling pictures
in the city, eat down by the fair grounds
to await his partner, whom he expected
along in a short time.
While there several email boys, the
! little Jayne boy among the rest, begin
playing with him. He had a knifo in
hi hand, with which he had been whit
tling, and in some way he drew his
band back and stuck the blade into the
little Jayne boy's side, ewiking a rib
which stopped the knife from penetrat
ing further. The wound, while painful,
is not considered dangerous.
. Bayard was placed under arrest and
will have a hearing before Justice
Bayard today. It appears to have been
an accident, as it is not likely that he
could have had any malicious intentions.

railroad lines commenced, branching off
from the main systems, and independ

rich, fertile state. The first to be started
will probably be an extension of the
Corvallis & Eastern to Prineville, and
on to connect with ihe Oregon Short
Line. This move has been contem
plated for some time. In fact, the
bonds were out and ready to float, with
a view to such improvements, when the
war came on and unsettled the promo
tera plans. Aa the conditions brought
about by the war are readily adjusting

tends to push the thing. This road,
tapping aa it dote the richest agricult
