The church should be well filled, as no
doubt it will be, for the captain knows

and Messrs. Baldwin and McWetby.
Mrs Smith gave a very interesting talk,

Last Sunday while coming from his
ranch to town Mr. Wm. Wigel saw a
peak in the Cascade mountains, known
here as Mt. Washington, in a state of
eruption. Mr. Wigel is a close observer
and is confident that smoke came from
the peak. It was also witnessed by sev
eral other responsible men-. At some
time this section has been in a. state of
eruption and there is no uncertainty but
bnt what Mr. Wigel Eaw is a fact.
Last Sunday at 3 p. m., Mr. Samuel F.
Bennett and Miss Susie E. Crofoot, both
of Tygh Valley, were united in holy
wedlock at the residence of Judge A. S.
Bennett on Fourth street, Rev. L. Grey
officiating. The marriage was a quiet,
family affair and only the immediate
relative and friends of the contracting
parties were present. Both parties are
well and favorably known in this city,
and in Tygh Valley, where they will es
tablish their new home.
Jacobsen's window seems to be the
center of attraction to everyone at pres
ent and a number of persons are con
stantly watching the big candle con
tained therein and discussing the length
of time which will elapse before it burns
down. Although the guesses made by
purchasers of goods have not been
looked over, they have ranged all the
way from thirty to three hundred houre.
From the manner in which it has disap
peared during the post three days since
it was lit, those who guessed 300 will be
most likely to be successful, as it grows
shorter very slowly.
I Great excitement prevailed in Port
land yesterday where on the gridion of
jkhe Multnomah field the Berkeley foot
ball team met the Multnomahs. As is
usual at such times in Portland, the rain
descended, although not to any great ex
tent, enough to make it interesting and
cause the boys to tumble around in mud
puddles. However it was not sufficient
to dampen the ardor of the players, nor
of the immense crowd which attended,
and Portland resounded ,! with college
yells and was brilliant with the colors of
bcth contestants. A company of Cali
fornia soldiers, now stationed at Van
couver, were successful in making their
presence known, while they shouted till 1
one would have thought the greatest
battle ever fought had been won. Some
how Berkeley proved too much for the
MultnomahB,and emphasized the fact by
not allowing the latter to score at all,
while they made 27 points. Multnomah
has always held her own remarkably

f Yesterday morning Messrs. F. L

Baldwin, P. Stadleman, V. Schmidt

team for the club, boarded the train for
Portland intent on doing the Road Club

sible. The ganaeBarBrCfTlaat night at
8-o'cIock, and much interest was taken
in the reports which were received by
Mr. Vorse, of the Oregon Telephone
Company, and announced at the club
rooms. However, disappointment was
plainly shown when it was made known
that our team was getting the worst of
it. They had won for themselves honors
in previous games, and Portland bowlers
felt they were to meet a formidable foe,
and well they might for Dalles bowlers
are not to be "sneezed" at, even if they
were beaten last night, coming out 90
pins behind the rival team. The first
three games were won by the Road
Club, when, becoming more used to the
alley, oar team won the last. We will
yet show them what Dalles bowlers' are
made of, as we have in times past.
OUT OF LAW AFTER YEARS.
Alexander Store's Estate Settled Mrs. F
H. Rows One of the Heirs.
Some weeks ago F. H. Rowe was
called to California in regard to the set
tlement of the estate of Mr. Alexander
More. It seems that the estate which
has been in litigation for the past five or
six years is at last to be turned over to
the neirs, Mrs. Rowe, whose maiden
name was More, being one of them.
Mr. Rowe will return home in about
three weeks, as at that time the entire
matter will be settled. The San Fran
cisco Examiner says concerning it:
"After five or six years' litigation the
estate of the late Alexander P. More, in
cluding Santa Rosa island, off Santa
Barbara, ia to be turned over to the
heirs. The estate was worth over $1,
160,000, and John F. More, a brother of
the decedent, was appointed adminis
trator.. He managed so badly that
Judge Coffee removed him and ap
pointed his sister, Mrs. Miller. J. F.
More appealed from the order of the
court suspending . him, but at the last
"Fred H. Rowe, husband of one of the
heirs, received a telegram yesterday an
nouncing the surrender of J. F. More of
all his claims to the estate,
"There were originally nine brothers
and sisters. Aa J. F. More has with
drawn, the estate will be divided into
eight parts and distributed per stirpeui,
as some of the brothers and sisters are
dead, leaving children.
"Mr. Rowe says the estate includes
$300,000 in personal property, $9,800 in
coin and among other realities Santa
Rosa island, valued at over $500,000.
The entire matter will be settled in
three weeks' time."

A GLAD CHRISTMASTIDE
HOW IT WAS SPENT IN DALLES
Summer Weather Failed to Lessen Its
Obiervaoce, and Santa Clans tiot
Here Just the Same.
1 Somehow since childhood with our
thoughts of Christmas comes a picture
Of housetops covered in snow and church
spires glittering through the light,
which everywhere shine from windows
whose illumination tell of the cheer
within the homea where this merriest
time of all the year ia celebrated by old
and young. And it ia difficult to imagine
St. Nicholas narking his ad rent except
he comes in the old-time manner, with
sleigh drawn by reindeers. Of late years
Dalles people have been doomed to dis
appointment in this line and Sunday the
thermometer stood at 49, while on Mon
day it waa 57 degreea, the warmest in
However it seems that Christmas was
more generally observed than in any
previous year for some time, nearly every
Sunday school having its exercises and
tree, delighting the children and making
the older people happy in seeing their
The Congregational churchr was never
so prettily decorated as upon the occasion
of this year's exercises Saturday evening,
the young ladies and gentlemen taking
particular pains to make this the crown
ing year in that regard. After a short
program, principally of song, the tree,
which was very beautiful in its wealth
of pop corn and other decorations, was
relieved of its burden of gifts, eyery
pupil receiving something therefrom. A
very happy idea waa that of drawing
names, a few weeks previous to the ex
ercises, and each member of the school
made a small gift to the one whose name
was drawn, thua preventing any from
being forgotten and engendering the
spirit of generosity and love among the
At the Episcopal church a Christmas
festival was the aider of exercises for
the same evening, when the church
looked very pretty in its decoration of
evergreen and holly. Across the front
of the building was a "rood screen"
covered in evergreen and upon which
were hung bags of candy and a present
for every child in the room, whether a
member of the school or a visitor. These
were "gracefully" given out by J. S.
Schenck and Arthur Clarke, whose
agility rivaled that of any St. Nick who
might climb down the chimneys most
difficult to descend. Very appropriate
was the program and the carols moat
A very unique idea was carried out at
the Calvary Baptist church, consisting
of two Christmas, trees, between which
was arranged a chimney and fire place.
Down this came Santa Clans and seeing
everyone, seemed somewhat surprised
and started back, finally deciding to re
turn and distribute the presents which
he found on the trees. The different
numbers on the program which had
been arranged were excellent, and each
little.tot and grown up boy and girl per
formed their part exceedingly well.

was packed with children of the Sunday
