' There is a possibility of the members
of Trinity church in Portland losing
their rector, Rev. D. C. Garrett, who is
very ' popular there, he having been
brought forward as a probable successor
of the late Bishop Perry, of Iowa. It is
a matter of custom in the Episcopal
church that men do not seek to be made
bishops, but often lend the influence of
their parishes for the benefit of others.

Tbe killing of the Spanish camp-tender
by Ollie Puyear, near Heppner last
Sunday was a very sad affair, from the
fact that the slayer was a ycung fellow
of about 22 years and is evidently a
young man well brought up and in no
manner displays the character of a crim
inal. When he went to Heppner and
delivered' himself up, saying that tbe
Spaniard bad exasperated him and fin
ally threatened to kill him and that the
deed was committed in self-defense, the
people of Heppner were much exerciBed
over the affair and at once were enlisted
on the side of the ' boy, bo honest add
straightforward was he. To avoid any
possible miscarriage of justice lie was
bound over in the sum of $500. Tbe
citizens immediately made np the sum
and sent him away on the' train to the
home of his sister. To a boy in a coun
try, unknown to a. single person, in his
hour of serious trouble,, to have the
united community respond to his rescue!

INLAND FLYER LAUNCHED.
The Fast B. P. Sc A. N. Steamer Is at
Last Id tbe Water.
The steamer Inland Flyer, owned by
the D. P. & A. N. Co., and which is to
make daily trips between this city and
Portland, was launched last evening at
6 o'clock at the latter place, and it is
gaid she took to water like a duckVTne

noon, but being lowered down to within
a few feet of the water before she made
the plunge, it took a much longer time
than was expected. Agent Allaway
who went down to witness the craft
glide into the water, was compelled to
leave before the work was completed in
order to catch a train for home. - -The
Inland Flyer was measured by
the custom officials Friday, and proved
larger than Bhe appeared to be from the
outside, measuring 151 tons gross and
122 net. The hull is built on very fine
lines, and is expected to show great
speed. She is just the sort of steamer
thatthe company has been in need of,
and their patrons will welcome her ad
vent on the river route, which will take
place in about two weeks. The con
tractors have given it out that they ex

many interested that it will be neces

""""Rev. L. V. Poling.who was a popular
pastor of the Congregational church
here and later at Albany, has been called
to The Dalles, where he will go October

be appreciated there."

In a Flourishing Condition, With Edi
fices any City Might Well be
. .: Frond Of.
For a city of its size, The Dalles is
particularly favored in the number of
churches she possesses, for no better
recommendation can' be given a place
than that it is not lacking in this re
gard. No matter what a man's belief
may be as regards religious doctrine, or
in fact, whether he has any, about the
first question he asks is, "What about
your churches and schools?" From the
answer to the first clause of the ques
tion, the other is usually inferred. Our
citizens deserve a great deal of credit for
the manner in which' they support the
many denominations here represented ;
especially those who are not connected
with any of them, and, shall we say,
seldom enter their doors? Often when
called upon repeatedly for donations
they are heard to remark : "We have too
many churches. Why do not some of
them consolidate and make the expense
lighter?" But at the same time they
are reaching into their pockets for the
wherewithal to aid in their maintenance
and to increase the good they are each
one doing, realizing that if not directly,
indirectly they are benefited by them.
For not one of them would tbey eee fail
for lack of support; -nor would they live
in a city where there is no pride in its
churches, much less where there are
Not only are we proud of the flourish
ing condition of our churches in every
direction calculated to make a religious
society fulfill the end for which it was
designed ; but the manner in which the
edifices add to the appearance of our
city is not to be overlooked.
Nearly every society has a compara
tively new building. The Catholics have
just completed a structure which would
be a credit to any city in the United
States. The Lutherans also have not
long since dedicated a neat church,
while that of the Christian denomina
tion might be termed new, since it has
been built but a few years. The Method
ist, Congregational and First Baptist'
churches were built soon after the fire of
'91, which destroyed their places of wor
ship, and are each models, of architect
ure. The Episcopal church, while not
quite so recently erected, has had a
number of .' improvements during the
past year, which make it as good as
new, and it is indeed a cozy place of
meeting where one feels at home. Al
though the Calvary Baptist society has
not as yet erected any special structure,
the building 'where they hold service
has been so . remodeled and arranged
that tbe inside ia all that could be de
sired as a comfortable sanctuary.
The Seventh Day Adventists- have a
small society here,- and meetings are
often held on their Sabbath in the First
So we have reason to be grateful that
we live in a city of churches, and where
the gospel may be heard from the best
of speakers every Sunday at least. -
