A desperate battle occurred in Grant
county between five Indians and a sher
iff's posse, which was in pursuit of the
redskins, on account of the latter having
shot two settlers last Wednesday. Dur
ing the fight one member of the posse
and all five of the Indians were killed.
Settlers have sent to Canyon City for
more ammunition, stating that Indians
are gathering aronnd Izee in large
numbers. The trouble arose over the
Indians accusing the whiles of stealing
Today we were shown some brooms
made at the new factory in the East
End. They are first-class in every re
spect, and were made of broom corn
which cost .the manufacturers, Merton
& Co., $130 a ton. At the Midwinter
fair in San Francisco this same broom
was awarded the premium. Here is a
splendid opportunity for us to show ap
preciation of the industries in our own
city. Let us help this new enterprise
along and in the near future the factory
can be enlarged, more workmen employed
and The Dalles be benefited thereby. ,

The funeral of Hensen McCoy took
place yesterday afternoon at Dufur, un
der the auspices of the order of Odd
Fellows, of which he has been a mem
ber for the past forty-four years. A. J.
Bngham, of Dufur, conducted the ser
vices, speaking feelingly of the deceased,
and the sorrow felt by all at the loss of
such a kind neighbor and friend. A
large number of Odd Fellows and Re
beccas were In attendance, among them
Messrs. T. Ward, W. H. Butts, Adolph
Phirman and Paul Paulsen, of Columbia
lodge. About fifty conveyances followed
the remains to the cemetery, and the
pall-bearers were brother Odd Fellows,
consisting of Messrs. Moore, Heisler,
Butler, Trout, Butts and Phirman.
Mr. A. N. Varney had the misfortune
to dislocate his shoulder, this morning.
While helping to carry a large dry goods
box up the steps to his residence, the
entire weight fell on him, knocking him
from the porch and dislocating his.
shoulder. Mr. Varney has decided to'
join bis wife, who is now in Massa
chusetts, where they expect to make
their home, and was packing the houseV
hold furniture. The accident will prob
ably delay the journey. We are very
sorry to learn of their intention to leave
The Dalles permanently, as we can illy
afford to part with such valued residents
as Mr. and Mrs. Varney. The latter
will be greatly missed in musical circles,
where she is ever ready to render as
sistance. The reporter yesterday stated that thu
local land office was receiving daily
an average of three applications for
publication notice to make final proof.
We could have added that homestead
filings are coming in at the rate of three
a day. This would canse most people
to wonder where on earth all this land
is located. The office is also very buey
with cash purchases of forfeited railroad
lands, the limit of time in which such
can be made expiring on January 1,
1899. This is causing the settler to "get
a move on." It is fortunate tbat a good
wheat crop and fair prices exist to help
the farmer at this particular time, all of
whom are anxious to get their share of
the forfeited lands, when situated so as
to avail themselves of the opportunity.
Last night several hoodlums of about
fourteen and sixteen years of age were
tearing around generally np near the
merry-go-round and finally succeeded
in scaring up a fight, which is the height
of some boys' ambition. Nightwatch-
man Phirman arrived on the ecene and
endeavored to quiet them, when Carl
Qstlund, who late'y ran away from the
reform school in Salem, raised an iron
bar and struck at him, corning within an
inch of striking him, which would cer
tainly have been fatal had ha not
dodged in time. Ostlund was taken to
.be city jail, where at last reports he
was still confined. As the watchman
took the young villian to his present
quarters, there followed in his wake
about a dozen boys of the same ilk, brag
ging as to how near, they came to down
ing the officer.
This element in The Dalles seems to
be endeavoring to get the upper hand of
reform schools, parents and officers. It
is appalling to think of the future in
store for them if a stop cannot be made
to their wild career. Many of them can
not be kept in school, which is too often
the fault of parents who refuse to nphold
the teachers when they attempt to cor
rect them. Others, whose parents can
not afford to keep tbem there fail to find
employment because of their worthless
ness. Who is to blame for this state of

MVe cannot refrain from making an
other plea in behalf of the appearance
of our streets, for a small effort on the
part of each individual citizen would
make such a marked difference in the
general effect which oar city produces
.Remaining longer ine visitor is im
pressed with the immense amount of
business which is going on, but spend
ing just a short time in our city one can
not fail to have unfavorable impressions
when upon looking around they see the
streets and sidewalks covered in debris
here a box; there an old plank, block
ing the way; old tin cans, papers, etc.,
scattered promiscuously abroad and
everything in disorder. All these small
matters, be they ever so trivial to those
who are accustomed to viewing them,
give the city an untidy appearance.
The cities, such as Denver, which are
noted for their pretty, clean streets,
employ men who go through them every
night, removing every scrap which has
collected during the day and sweeping
the pavement. A place the size of The
Dalles could not be expected to do any
thing of this Vind ; but each individual
owner of property can do his part.
Suppose every merchant should make it
his business to see tbat the6idewalk and
street around his nlffi nf hnainpea in
carefully cleaned and the scraps of pa
per, etc., removed every morning, what
different looking business streets we
should have. It would require but a
few moments of the porter's time, and
not only add to the general appearance
of the city, but to the attractiveness of
his particular store. Any purchasers
would naturally expect to find the best
goods at the neatest looking place.
Can we not prevail upon our citizens
to study this matter over and decide to
make an effort along this line?
