A dispatch from Astoria says: "The
boiler formerly ueed on the schooner C.
W. Rich will be shipped this morning to
The Dalles, where it will be placed in
the new ferryboat to run on the Upper
Columbia. At the Astoria iron works a
new engine is also being constructed for
the same craft."
F. M. Chrisman, of Silver Lake, was
in the city yesterday. Being questioned
as to the immense traction engine and
freight train which he shipped to Silver
Lake on his last visit, he was somewhat
reticent and from what could be inferred
from his conversation, it has not proven
as successful as was anticipated by him.
The fatal accident on the torpedo boat
Davis Thursday between Portland and
Astoria was caused by the loss of the
water in the forward boiler. The tubes
in the forward end became dry and
overheated, and nine of them blew out
of the Eteam drum eight on the .port
and one on the starboard side. The
after boiler appears to be uninjured.
The ball Saturday night, although not
being-patronized as extensively as was
expected, was a success as far as enjoy
ment was concerned. Who could fail to
enjoy dancing to such perfect music as
that furnished by our orchestra? It is
to be hoped many parties will be given
during the winter months when dancers
shall have the opportunity to keep time
to the strains of such inspiring music.
The new engines to be put on between
The Dalles and Umatilla have been
built in the East, and are expected to
arrive here in a few days. The new
engines will be heavier than any now in
use even on the mountain division. At
the present time, the heaviest engines
are rather hugh pieces of mechanism,
weighing no less than 110 to 112 tons, or
220,000 to 224,000 pounds. The new ones
will be heavier, and will be powerful
enough to pull from Umatilla westward
no less than eighty loaded freight carp.
. Some idea of what each a tram will be
may be gained from a. computation.
Giving thirtv-three feet to each car, with
the engine, the train would be over half ! A Lettr
a mile long, with from 1200 to 1500 tonB
of freight. On the road between The
Dalles and Umatilla has been put down
sixty to seventy-pound steel rails, in
preparation for the heavier engines.
Samuel E. Wells, the Shakespearean
reader, will arrive by the 5 :30 train this
evening and will give his first reading
tonight at the Baldwin, commencing at
8:30 prompt. Chaucey Depew eays of
him: "He seizes at once the very soul
of Shakespeare; giving to every word
and line its exact' meaning and full
power. Mis readings are veritable trans
lations ; each character Btanding out
clear cut and with- creative . brilliancv."
It is the intention of the. management
of Tub Chronicle that every subscriber
should receive the paper each evening,
and at as early an hour as possible.
Many times it is unavoidably late, but
we will endeaver to publish at a reason
able hour. The carriers at present are
the very best to be obtained, and no
neglect is anticipated. However, if from
any avoidable reason the paper fails to
reach its destination, it will be con
sidered a favor if a report is made.
Those who attended the evening ser
vice at the Methodist church yesterday
listened to one of the best sermons which
a Dalles audience has heard for some
time. Rev. Wood took for his topic "Per
sonal Influence," and the manner in
which he treated the subject was such
as to impress upon his hearers the re
sponsibility oteach as regards the every
day actions, which to us seem trivial;
but are in their results weighty and far
Geo. Barrows, who is the envied owner
of Del Norte, left thiB morning for his
home in Independence. He expects
soon to make a tour of the East exhibit
ing this wonderful horse, which when
seen at the fair grounds fairly cap
tivated all by his human-like ac
tions, and as he walked up to the grand
etand after the race the ladies were
heard to remark "Isn't he sweet?" "Oh
how cute,!" while every man on the
grounds simultaneously said "By Jove!
I'd like to own that piece of horee flesh."
When the fire bell rang yesterday
morning about 5 o'clock, naturally every
one who was energetic enqngh to start
out, turned their steps tojtiie East End,
where fire is won't to originate. This
time, however, the West End seemed to
have its innings, asit- was soon dis-

The following extract is from a letter
written by 5. O. Elton, one of our boys
at Manila, to D. H. Roberts, and feeling
that his friends cannot hear too much
concerning the sad death of Will Fields,
we asked permission to publish it:
Many things have happened since I
dropped this pencil. We have lost a
faithful nurse, friend and comrade, in
William Field. He enlisted with us at
The Dalles and faithfully filled the posi
tion of com missionary store keeper.
When we reached Cavite, be was trans
ferred to the hospital corps. It was be
who nursed Walter Dickey, and to whom
Walter owes his recovery. All who
have been sick at the brigade hospital
are anxious to expresB their regard for
Field. The doctors say that he per
sisted in waiting on others when he
should have been in bed. . After he went
to bed his fever ran up to 115, then he
was placed on ice. While on the ice bis
fever would go down, but as soon as re
moved it would go up. This lasted till
about noon on the 3d, when he expired.
We received the tidings in the evening
and prepared to attend the funeral. The
firing-jjarty and the bugler were chosen,
the firing party being as follows : Cor- !
poral Smiley and privates Earl Saunders,
Guy Sanders, Lowe, Walter Eeavis,
Fred Kennedy, John Cooper, Brown
and Friedly. The bugler 'was Purdy.
The proceesion started from the brigade
hospital, the South Dakota band tak
ing the lead, the firing - party next, the
hearse drawn by the following men from
company L., G. S. Baliard.C. W. Smith,
W. E. Smith, D. J. Bonner, Allard,
O'Flarity, Lukenbeal and J.- p. Elton.
After the hearse followed the escort,
composed of the remainder of company
L.; officers and friends of the deceased.
The pall -bearers were Bodley, Crawford,
Dukes, Ralfe, Gallagher, Jones, New
field and Howard from the hospital
corps. The Oregon chaplain read the
service and the outh Dakota chaplain
led in prayer. Then the firing party
advanced end fired three volleys over the
grave; next the bugler blew "taps" and
the ceremony was finished.
We returned to Cavite and took the
4 o'clock boat for Manila, feeling that
! we had paid the last tribute to a dear
and faithful comrade. He received

covered to be in Truman Butler's wood
shed. Quite a blaze had started when
one of the railroad men, on his way to
work, discovered' it and gave the alarm.
The Columbia hose company was the
first to arrive, and in a very few
minutes what bid fair to be a veritable
Dalles fire was soon under control. The
origin of the fire is still a mystery. It
seem 8 to have etarted from the ash
barrel ; but Mr. Butler claims that no
ashes had been deposited- there since
last Tuesday. It is hardly probable that
it was incendiarism, the unseemliness of
the hour doing away with that theory.
So the question as to how it originated
has not been solved aa yet.

Some uncertainty aa to the date of the

has prevented bis appearance in this
city being very extensively adviertised,
consequently Dalles people may fail to
improve what is certainly . a rare op
portunity to hear a good reader.
The entertainment will begin this even

of Venice" and "Gems of Laughable

Brigadier Marshall, who has been con
ducting a series of meetings at the Sal-
vatiou Army ball, has decided to remain
and hold another meeting tonight. His
meetings have been well attended and
great interest baa been shown.
Sunday afternoon one man found the
Savior the brigadier has been tt lling of,
and Sunday night three young men
knelt at the alter and found the eaving
grace of God sufficient for them.
God is wonderfully using the Brigadier
to bring souls into the light of Gods love.
Come and hear him speak tonight. We
cordially invite you to come.

This readiness to accept the wonderful
and miraculous in preference to com
monplace truth. A. plausible and glib
tongued doctor can go from town to town
curing, or trying to cure, people, and
have a great influx of shekels, while
every community in which the so-called
doctor goes is supplied with quiet,
learned practitionors, who have forgotten
more than the fakir ever learned, and
they can give you the best treatment
within the reach of human knowledge.
While your home doctors carry you from
year to year, get up at all times of the
night and are your servants during the
dpy, and yon pay them when you are
well or able, the fakir gets the cash, and
is gone forever. If your eyes are troub
ling you in any way, call on Prof. P. G.
