If you had any idea how
much better these Hart,
SchafFner & Marx suits are
than ordinary clothes you
would much rather have
them, even at a higher price.
The fact is we sell them for
as little and often for less
than you would pay for in
ferior goods elsewhere.
You owe it to yourself to
come in here and see them
before you buy. It costs
nothing to investigate. We
like to show our goods.

Old eettlera who have, lived in this

This morning Mr. Lord invited a
number of our amateur photographers to
accompany Mr. and Mrs. Weister on a
trip to Celilo and the fisheries. So,
armed with all the paraphernalia nec

a large number of snap shots, for that is
just the place to resort for such views as
are now the pride of every photographer.
Some people express themselves oddly
during their hours of sorrow. An ex

recently handed in for publication, in

the funeral services. The next thing in
order will be to thank the corpse for
lying still and not disturbing the meet

clerk this morning astonished a friend
by remarking "Did you hear about
Henry Phirman dropping one hundred

Of course the sucker caught and said,
"No? How did he escape? Roger put his
head under, the desk and faintly said:
"They were pigs feet." and the measlev
clerk still lives.

The Grass Valley Journal says : "It
ia a great pleasure for the Journal to
announce that Moro merchants, through
their enterprise, have secured the con
tract for hauling wool from Muddy
station, Crook county, to Moro.' They
have closed a contract with the Prine
ville Land and Stock Company, to de
liver at Moro about 100,000 pounds of
wool, with about 75,000 pounds of return
freight for Muddy Btation, a point about
eighteen miles south; cf Antelope."

but what about the. stock company? If
we are not misinformed, they'll be sorry
of their bargain. The time is not ripe

for its celebration by having the little
ones prepare small gifts, such as they
make in their paper work, and each
child brought a few flowers to present
to their companion, who had the dis
tinction of being 4 years old that day.
After they had sang and played games,
Mrs. Hostetler arrived, carrying a large
basket of good things, among which
was a large birthday cake, with four
candles on it. Then the little ones made
a flower wreath and crowned Jessie,

This is one of the many ways in which

Thenewpapers of The Dalles have long
been urging upon the people the nec
essity of inducing the establishment of
manufactories, etc., in our city by for
eign capital. The Dalles being so signal
ly blessed with natural advantages has
been the cause of much of the lethargy
noticeable in our citizens,' but in spite
of their inactivity the town has held its
own. However, as Crandall & Burget
told us for eo many years in their ad
vertisement, "there is a tide in the af
fairs of men, etc.;" it has come to The
Dalles, and we must get in it, or we'll
be left high and dry.
Our business men are awakening to
tlii a fact; and Thursday evening Mr. G.
J. Farley came before the Commercial
Club and presented a splendid proposi
tion for assisting the city to march for
ward and be what it was intended it
should be one of the foremost manu
facturing cities in the yes, the world.
The principal drawback to the es
tablishment of these industries in our
midst has ever been that when a propo
sition was made by foreign capital, no
inducement was given them by our own
people, but rather have they been dis
couraged in the idea, and they would
turn their backs on the very eituation
which would have been the place offer
ing the most natural advantages and
where success would be aesured from the
very nature of things.
Every plan for overcoming this diffi
culty which has so far been advanced,
has received little support from our
townspeople. Mr. Farley's plan, how
ever, eeema to meet their approval, and
recommends itself from the fact that it
has been so successfully tried in many
neighboring towna. The idea ia to raise
a sutsidv to be held in reserve eo that
when any individual or corporation pro
poses to establish manufactures in our
midst, there may be eome financial in
ducement offered. To accomplish this
it ia proposed to assess residents as
follows: Property owners on Second
street $1 for every foot of land owned,
which would amount to about $5000.
Thia would not include non-resident
owners. Business houses, from $10 to
$100, aggregating $5000. Professional
men, $10, amounting to $500. House
holders, $1 each $2650. Clerks and
employes, $1 to $2 $1000. All other
resources about $1,500. In this manner
a sum amounting to about $15,000 con d
be raised. This sum to be placed in the
bands of a reliable committee, with
proper security, etc.
No doubt many will look upon this
with disfavor, from the fact that taxes
are already so high in The Dalles that
they are a burden on property owners,
which is undoubtedly too true. How
ever, the burden of this scheme will fall
upon the property owners on Second
street, the heaviest of which have al
ready acquiesced, and surely those who
have the lighter burden will help sus
tain it for the sake of the benefit to be
derived in the future.
It was arranged that a rally meeting
be held at the club rooms on Saturday,
May ISth, when every member will be
expected to attend and the matter be
thoroughly discussed. We trust, ae the
ministers say, "all will be endowed with
a revival spirit," and attend prepared
to co-operate for the good of our city.

Jonah Will Do The Absorbing; Act.
The Chboniclb some time since in
reading the Telegram, noticed an item
to the effect that the O. R. & N. had
absorbed the Columbia Southern, and
casually remarked to that effect in its
columns. This is the way the Moro
Observer comes back at us :
"The latest railroad rumor," eays the
Dalles Chronicle, is to the effect that
the O. R. & N. Company has absorbed
the C. S. Railway Company. Next."
We called upon President Lytle to
substantiate or deny the rumor, and
was informed that there was no truth
whatever in the report. The only ex
planation was that the C. S. Ry. Co. had
absorbed The Dalles and the compositor
mixed toe item. -
Has it? Well, who'd have thought it
from the lively manner in which the
absorbed is conducting itself at present.
If that 13 really the case we sympathize
with the absorber. It surely will find
t has bitten off more than it can chew."
It takes more than a railroad shark to
absorb The Dalles, and the shark who
attempts it will find he has a harder
meal to digest than did the whale that
swallowed Jonah. It will no doubt be
as the old darkey said, "Jonah will swal
low the whale," and as he does eo he

good opening for a young man."
