Yesterday was an exceptionally quiet,
day in the wool markets in The Dalles;
Not a single wool sale was reported and
everything indicated that another lull in
the market is at band. Quite ah
amount of wool is still in the hands of
the growers and they apptar very un
concerned as to whether or not they sell
immediately. . . '. '

The case against Henry Wickraan,
who was one of the men arrested for
stealing rifles on the night of the fire,
was dismissed yesterday morning on
motion of Deputy District Attorney
Michel, for lack of sufficient evidence?
Those who are acquainted with the
young man, who was brought up in and
near The Dalles, felt positive from the
first that he was not guilty, but that a
mistake had been made in his arrest.
He has always been known as an honest
fellow, and his home surroundings being
the very best, he is morally incapable
of committing such a crime.
A rain storm, accompanied by thun
der and lightning, set in about 8 o'clock
last night, and for a time the rain
poured down in torrents. Several
showers occurred during the night, and
if the rain is general over Eastern Ore
gon and continues it will certainly de
stroy thousands of bushels of grain in
this section. Scarcely enough fell last
night to do any great amgunt of dam
age; but if it continues, the grain which
is stacked and ready to thresh will rot
in the stacks, as they are totally unp-o-tected
from the dampness. It will ajso
have a bad effect 'on the ripe grain,
which ia standing ready for the sickle.
Numerous opinions are expressed

water supply being short for every day
use, and especially in such an emer
gency as the conflagration of Monday
morning. In this they are somewhat
mistaken, as the persons in charge of
the water system are endeavoring by
every means to keep the reservoir full,
and in this they are succeeding admira-1
bly. There was plenty of water at the
fire -Monday morning, and the report
that the water was running short was
circulated principally to spare the sup
ply in case the 'fire spread farther than
the limits to which it was confined.
This is a time of year when water is
very Ecarce, and when a full supply is
needed in case of an' emergency, and
while there is not a shortage, still the
consumers should not be too extrava
gant at present.

AN EXCITING BLAZE.
Fire Narrowly Averted By Able
Work on the Part or the Fire
Yesterday afternoon about 3 :30 "o'clock
the people of The Dalles were again
aroused by the dreaded fire alarm, and
in a Bhort time the streets ' were filled
with a crowd of people who feared that
another memorable blaze was gaining
Upon investigation it was .found that
the scene of the fire was the workshop
of Maier & Benton, which is a wooden
structure placed along side of their store
in the center of one of the finest blocks
in the city.
The department was on the scene in
less than five minutes after the alarm
bad been turned in, and in a short time
the blaze was under control.
The Chkonicle bucket brigade did
good work in keeping the flames back
until the department arrived, while H.
S. Wilson had. the honor of turning on
the first stream with a garden hose from
the second floor of the French building,
adjoining that of Maier & Benton.
Messrs. J. W. French and E. Kurtz can
testify from personal contact with this
force of vater as to its dampening
power. . .
At the time the fire started there was
no one in the shop except Joe Kerchorf,
who was in his small work shop in the
south end of the building. Before he
noticed the emoke the fire had such
headway that he was forced to escape
through a window.
The facts are not known, but it is
thought that the fire started from a fire
box in 'which the soldering irons were

Condition of Crops In Eastern Oregon
The Temperature III eh During
the Fast Week.
Crops are too far advanced for the
heat to injure them. Harvesting con
tinues full blast.
The past seven days were the warm
est on record east of the Cascades. The
maximum temperature on Wednesday,
the 10th, ranged from 112 to 118; that
night it fell to from 75" to 82. The
mean temperature for the week aver
aged 83; this is 2 higher than the phe
nomenally hot w.eek ending August 23,
1897. At Heppner, the highest temper
ature during the week was 110: the
mean maximum temperature at Hepp
ner ironi July 24th to August 14th was
96, the minimum 55. At many places
east of the Cascades, the maximum
temperature on every day ot the . past
seven was above 95; . the . temperature
during the .night fell to 82 and lower,
averaging 68, so. that sleep and rest
were possible for man and beast. Many
eensational reports have been Eent out
concerning the great heat, but weather
bureau recorder do not verify them.
Weather bureau temperatures are air
temperatures, and not directly influ
enced by the rays of the sun. Many
private thermometers are inaccurrate
and haye faulty exposures. One report
stated that at 5 a. m. the temperature
was 101, while the weather bureau rec
ord: was 82 at the same hour. Another
report stated that for nights in succes
sion the temperature did not fall below
98, while the ayerage from weather
bureau . termometers was 62, and the
highest 71. These sensational . state
ments convey wrong impressions. The
week was hot, the temperatures were
the highest on record, and -few places in
the United States have records of higher
temperatures ; yet facts only should be
given. The weather was generally clear,
with west to north winds.
All the fall-sown wheat, oats and bar
ley had advanced beyond a stage where
the hot weather could injure them ;

tinue. The warm weather caused har
vesting to be suspended for a few hours
on the 10th; but owing to the dryness
of the air, the heat was not as appre
ciable to animal life as may be sup
posed. The hot weather caused spring
sown grain to ripen too rapidly ; thie
produced some shriveled grain, and the
heads did not fill as well as they other
wise would have done. ' The harvest is
progressing most satisfactorily. ' The
grain is, as a rule, of first-clasar quality

Xotlce to Delinquent Taxpayer's.
The delinqent t fixes of Wasco counfy,
as shown on the rolls now in the hands
of the sheriff are $60,000, an amount al
most equal to the indebtedness of the
county. Every citizen will doubtless
admit that this state of affairs should
not exist, and that all taxes should be
collected. -On account of hard times
in. the past the county court Las shown
leniency to taxpayers, but that leniency
has reached the limit, and the court
cannot wait longer on delinquents to
make settlements. For this reason a
warrant has been attached to each de
linquent roll commanding the sheriff to
collect all taxes by seizure and sale of
properly. With a bountiful . crop now
in sight, there can no longer be any rea
sonable excuse for the non-payment of
taxes. The sheriff is bound by oath to
comply with the terms of the warrants
attached to the tax. rolls for the collec
tion thereof, and has no option in the
matter. Delinquent taxpayers can save
the cost of seizure an 1 sale of property
by settling their taxes at once. V
