with Mrs. Wilson and Miss Wrenn at
the home of the former Saturday after
noon. After a week of extra bard work.
the afternoon spent in pleasant conver

was doubly enjoyed.
r . jr. inays, one 01 tne attorneys in
the Forester case, is in the city today,
and this morning the judge set the date
of the commencement of that case for
the afternoon of the third day of the
next term of court, which is February

Rev. Poling being unable to fill hi
pulpit yesterday. Rev. D. B. Gray, who
fifteen years ago was pastor of the Con
greational church in this city, conduct
ed the services. . His many friends and
former parishonere were pleased to greet
him again and listen to bis counsel. In
the morning his text was "Lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven;" in the
evening, "Am I my brothe'rs keeper?"
His 'audiences were deeply, interested
and hope to hear ' him preach in The
Dalles soon again.
This morning a few minutes after' J.
Peters had left his home, the sitting-
room was found to be on nre, and what
gave promise of being a serious conflagra
tion was discovered just in time. In a
few minutes the fire would have been
beyond control. It started from a quilt
which had been' placed to warm near
the fire, and the children in being called
to breakfast, had overturned it on the
stove. It had been burning briskly for
twenty minutes when discovered. The
damage is confined to the carpets and
Saturday evening Marshal Lauer ar
rested Ernest Patton, the other and
worst of the two morphine fiends whom
we have spoken of recently. This morn
ing he was taken before Recorder Gates
and fined $20 or ten days in jail. He
chose the later. Although the most re
pulsive and pitiable object imaginable,
be is said to be a very intelligent man,
and a member of one of the best families
in Salem. He claims to have been given
the drug by doctors when being treated
for rheumatism. - Says be has been
adicted to the habit for eight years and
does not hope to ever be cured of it.
On account of .the illness of the pastor
Presiding Elder Warner ably filled th
pulpit at the Methodist church yester
day, taking as his morning text, "He
that is not for me, is against me, and
be that gathereth not with me
suatleretb abroad.". : la the evening
speaking from . the words, "Behold I
stand at the door and knock." The
evening services were of a revival nature
and will continue during the week.
Wedneeday evening it is expected that
John Naegle, the famoua "Campmeet
ing Johnnie" will conduct the meeting.
Next Sunday Chancellor Tboburn, of
Portland, will preach both morning and
The new county of Wheeler, the bill
providing for which has been intro
duced in the legislature, is to be 54
miles in its greatest length' north and
south, and 36 miles east and west, tak
ing in the towns of Mitchell in Crook
and Fossil in Gilliam county. The
Statesman says : "The residents of the
territory named want the new county.
Those of that part of Grant are about 90
miles from their present county seat,
those of Crook being also a long distance
by circuitous route from theirs and the
southern portion of Gilliam being sim
ilarly situated. It meets '. principal op
position from the northern portion of
Gilliam county." . ,
The ladies' of the Commercial elub will
now have an incentive to bowl '.such 'as
has never been given before. Saturday
we were shown a beautiful trophy which
is the handiwork of Mr. J, ' C. Hoetetler
and will be given by , him to . the moBt
successful lady bowler." It is an orna
ment in bent iron 'work,? consisting of a
gilded pin set in scroll work, above
which is a ball, also gilded, and crown
ing all, the emblem of the club white
wings, extending from the arrow point.
Around the pin are arranged the gilded
letters "D. C. A. C." Altogether it is a
beautiful design which must have re
quired much skill and work. Any lady
would be proud to own it as an orna
At this time of the year the sidewalks
are necessarily in a bad condition before
the snow is entirely removed and the
chinook has gotten in its cleaneing work.
There is much that can be done in an
individual way toward keeping the side
walks and pavements of our city in such
a condition that pedestrians are not
sickened by passing ever them. In As
toria and other cities there is a law
against expectorating on these highways
and such an ordinance should be passed
in The Dalles. It is fairly nauseat
ing many times to be compelled to
walk along after some consumptive or
other person has made a cuspidore of
the sidewalk. Besides,' physicians tell as
that this is a most effective way to spread
tuberculosis and other diseases broad
cast. Something should be done to com
pel the use of the sewers or street for
sucn purposes, leaving the walks as
lean as possible.
On account of the ill health of their
daughter, Dr. Gertrude French, Mr. and
Mrs. S. French have prevailed upon her
to take a trip to New York City, in the
hope that thechaage will benefit her

been fully arranged, but will probably
be some time this week, when Mr. and
Mrs. French will accompany her. They
will remain for a time, their return be
ing determined by the benefit derived.
Yesterday during the session of the
Methodist Sunday school, Rev. Wood
announced the necessity of electing a
superintendent to fill Mrs. .French's
place during her absence. He also epoke
of Ibe efficient work done byMrs.Trench
in that capacity, of the affection of the
school for her, and the regret felt at her
departure, calling for a rising vote , ex-
preesive of the feelings of the school.
All present arose en masse and tears were

Oar Minstrel Show.
J. F. HamDshire jfiade a flvincr trirj to
Portland yesterday for the purpose of
procuring costumes for the minstrel
show to bevveu by local talent Satur
day nighf'at the Vogt. While most of
them will arrive later in the week, the
reporter has been permitted to see those
to be worn by the principal characters,
and they are "beauts So handsome
is the white velvet suit of the interlocutor
that it might put alf the others in the
shade were the rest not loud enough to
make themselves seen.
The opening scene cannot fail , to be
very striking if the costumes give any
idea of its appearance. In factf'the whole
performance is to be costumed to the
queen's taste. - J
The show opens with a grand first
part, with N. J. Sinnott a a- interlocutor
and Clarke, Hampshire, Croseen and
Hollister as end men, supported' by a
large chorus of our best male voices. The
jokes are all new and the"' musical selec
tions the most catchy. This part closes
with ''Did you hear about Brown."
The curtain then riseB on the little
mascots, Lei a Kelsay and Hazel Waud,
who give a song and cake walk, which le
said to be "too cute for anything."
Next comes a male; quartet, in cos
tume, and after a short intermission the
last part . opens with a tumb.
ing act by Ballard and Kelsay. A sim
ilar performance last year was considered
one of the best on the program, and is
equally as good this year. Dawson and
Heroux will also je seen in a leger de
main act, which is excellent. Frank
and Crossen will appear in the dude
black-face sketch, and their reputation
as singers assures a fine turn.
Then we are to see Hampshire and
Clarke in a turn which surpasses any
thing they have yet attempted. This
announcement is sufficient to pack the
Baldwin's darkey band is a prominent
feature of the evening, while many other
sketches, etc., not mentioned, will be in
evidence.- Not to' speak of the grand
cake walk as a pleasing finale.
