A number of Dalles people were on

from Portland last night, and upon

this side of that place. No. 4 reached
there about 3:50 and remained until
about 12 o'clock ; while No. 2 was side

' The loss of stock in Crook county
during the winter of 1898-99 may be
now safely estimated as not worthy of
mention. From all sections of the
country come reports of light losses,
and stock in fairly good condition. A
recent heavy snowfall in t:.e foothills
assures us not only a heavy growth of
grass during the coming season, but
ample water for irrigation. Indeed,
Crook county, Oregon, has few peers
and no superiors on the Pacific coast as
a stock country. Crook Co. Journal.
This year is to be the year for "going
West," and there will be no end of
immigrants coming our way. The rail
roads are doing their best to settle up
the Northwest, and the Great Northern
and Northern Pacific have made a rate
of $25 from St. Paul to Portland, going
into effect today. The Canadian Pacific
and "Soo Line" have met this rate from
Eastern terminals to Puget sound points.
On and after the third Tuesday of this
month and the first Tuesday in' April
the Canadian announces a round-trip
first-class rate of $52 from St. Paul.
The Saturday soirees given by Smith
Bros, have been a source of great enjoy
ment to a large number of dancers.
Not only those belonging to the class,
but many 'outsiders who appreciate a
good floor and good music, attend every
week. These were much disappointed
to learn from the Times-Mountaineer
last week that Saturday night's soiree
would be the last. This was a mistake;
it was not the laet nor the least, and bo
thoroughly enjoyable was it that every
one was glad to have Mr. Smith an
nounce that he intended to have the
soirees continue, although his dancing
class will be closed for this season.

It seems tbrat it has been' a custom of
Mr. Mc Neiy to occasionally walk to his
farm near Mosier, where his family re
sides, either going, on baturday evening
or Sunday morning. - About 4 o'clock
yesterday morning William Allatt says
that he met Mr. McNeil going down
Second stroet, auartbaj; be tnrned the
corner at Union. It is supposed that
he started to cross the new bridge on his
homeward journey and reaching the end
of the walk, in the darkness stumbled
and fell, the distance being about 45
feet, falling on bis back in the creek,
and stunning : him " so that be had no
power to help himself. The . wonder is
that bis neck was not broken, or that he
was not '. badly ' mashed falling ' such a
distance, and it has been a question in
the minds of some whether he did not
fall from the foot log above, but nothing
could be found to justify such a belief.
The only marks on his person were
slight bruise on the back of bis head
and a small red spot on one' cheek,' so
that he must have drowned in his strug
gle after tailing. The body floated about
twenty feet till it reached shallow water.
For the past twenty years Mr. McNeil
has been foreman in the carpenter shop
of H. Glenn, and no more trusted em
ploye could be found. His life has been
one of constant work in the endeavor to
support a large family, and having done
his duty well, it seems bard that such
an end should have been his. He was
particularly thoughtful, assisting in
many ways the family of his deceased
brother, A. McNeil. He made provision
for the wants of hie children when he
should leave tbem, having $2000 life in

Ornament to the City Bliei Oat of
the Rain of the Conflagration
Time after time hps The Dalles been
tried in the fiery furnace, but just to
often has she phoenix-like arose from
tbe flames, each time more bright and
with more of a determination to prove
herself undaunted. The last conflagra
tion of. note was that on tbe night of
August 14th, juat seven months ago to
morrow, and, in that short time, from
the mass of ruins has arisen many
buildings which far discount those con
sumed. On the corner of Second and Federal
Streets stood the hardware store of Mays
& Crowe, which had been fitted "ud bo
completely that it was the pride of the
town ; but tbiB with the rest was swept
away in a few hours. : Many were afraid
that havlDg suffered such a loss, tie
firm would be so discouraged that - they
would hesitate to rebuild. But no sooner
were the, ashes cold than' plans were
being formulated for a new building,
and today the last load of goods will be .
moved into a hardware store wbich is
not equalled on the Pacific coaet. Nob
a feature of .the whole edifice has been
slighted, and from the basement to tbe
large warehouse on the upper floor it is
The entire structure is 100 feet square,
the implement and hardware depart
ment each being 53x100 feet. A large
gallery encircles the lower floor, audi
from the floor to the ceiling, twenty
feet, extends shelving with which i
intermixed hardware boxes, all veneered
with oak. To tbe front of the imple
ment department is a plate glass gnn
case, twenty-one feet long, and for every
article sold there is a place where it fits
in perfectly. A large Warner hydraulic
elevator, with a capacity of three tons,
has been put in at the southeast corner
of the implement deparment.
The ceiling of the building is of
figured steel artistically painted, while
the tints are very delicate and tasty.
While every part of the store is worthy
of mention, the large office in tbe back
and to the center of the building strikes
the eye at once, being surrounded with
glass and fitted np completely. The
floor of the main office is covered with
linoleum, while the private office will
be carpeted. The large desk of the book
keeper is one of the finest we have ever
seen, being of ot." , highly polished.

The main store will be lit with nine
arc lights of 500 candle power, and the
office with incandeecents, which shining;
through tbe front of solid plate glass,
will illumine the entire street.
Time forbids our giving this mono
ment of tbe enterprise of tbe firm a fitting
description or mentioning the numerous
adjuncts to tbe main building. It' is a
structure which would do credit to any
city in the United States.
