The war department has solved the
question as to the disposition of the
artillery captured from Spain - in Cuba
and Porto Rico by turning the whole

the gun for his state. What will Oregon
do with her spoils.
The maximum thermometer today at
The Dalles is 72. During the last warm
spell it reached 82. The - most remark
able coincidence in temperature was
that of yesterday, when at Portland,
The Dalies, Umatilla, Riparia, North-
port and LeAiston the minimum was 40;
At Wenatchee 46. On Monday at Port
land the maximum was 56; at The
Dalles and ' Umatilla 63; Wenatchee,
Riparia and Lewiston 62; North port 60.
The warm weather of today has caused
many to shake their heads meaningly
and predict a flo.d. It does look a little
scarey ; but we mnst remember we cannot
judge from our weather, which the re
port says will last three days. The
Snake will fall until Fridav, and the
Columbia remain stationary until Satur
day, when both rivers will experience a
decided rite. The river here now stands
at 34, a rise of .6 since yesterday, bnt
fall of about an inch since morning.
City election is nearer than we seem to
think from the little we have heard con
cerning it. The third Monday in this
month is the date, June 19th, when
mayor, treaeurer. five conncilmen and
four water commissioners will be elected.

dicatious we are to have an entertain

"shake up the town." The ladies of the
library have taken the matter in hand
and appointed a committee of ladies
consisting of Mesdames Schenck, Logan
Blakeley. MacAllieter, Moody, Eddon
and Miss Lang to engineer the perform
ance. Mrs. Rnncie comes with the
higheet of recommendations, and is a
lady of refinement, so that we may ex -

Deputy Sheriff Sexton and Constable
Hill returned last night from Salem,
whither they went to convey John
Stocking, an ineane man, to the asylum.
The patient was induced to make the
trip with the understanding that he was
to purchase all. the supplies needed by
Uncle Sam at the Philippines. The last
the officers saw of poor old Stocking he
was starting away, with an attendant on
either side of him, to purchase onions
to ship to the soldier boys. His greatest
anxiety seeded to be that he would not
get back in time to finish the palatial
hotel he was erecting on the corner of
Madison and Third street. Many no
doubt have noticed this structure, built
mostly of the hide of coal oil cans and
with no covering to shot out the light of
day. However, Stocking - insisted be
would make of it a three-story structure
which -would accommodate 200 guests.
The beat thing that can be done with it
since the proprietor has abandoned it
would be for the marshal to have it torn
down. . .. . -- -

SOME ONE TO BLAME.
Manner In YTblcli a - Body Tn
eizlpped to Friends by the
State Insane Aylnm.
The case of the suicide of Mies Laura
Donaldson at the insane asylum last
Sunday looming, and her shipment to
The Dalles (which was het home; on
the following day, has revealed to the
people of this city a fact which was not
a little surprising and caused much com
ment in regard to the treatment Ore
gon's insane dead receive at the bands
of that institution. When officers of
such an institution are appointed to
these positions the state naturally sup
poses that they are possessed of at least
human instincts, which not only lead
them to care carefully for the living,
but to see that the nnfortunate dead re
ceive at least the meagerest attention
and a decent burial. Such it would
seem is not the case; at least in one in
stance it has not been so.
Early Sunday morning Laura Donald
son, who was committed from lhe
Dalles about a year ago, committed
euicide in that institution by tearing her
night gown in strips and making a rope
out of the same, which she fastened to
the window guard, tied the other end
about her neck, and laying down upon
the floor, choaked herself.
Word was telegraphed to Frank Men-
efee, in this city, and he answered by
telling them to. ship the body to this
place, supposing, of course, the remains
would receive such attention as the
exigencies of the case demand, we
know not what is considered the duty of
the state in such cases, but surely it
must be that Oregon is expected to show
more respect to her dead than was given
in the- instance of the young lady
mentioned. When the remains reached
here the undertaker was surprised to
find the coffin (or box, for it was w hat is
termed a pauper coffin) had no outside
covering, such as coffins are usually in
cased in. However, little wag thought
of that matter; but when Crandall
& Burget examined the corpee they were
shocked at the little attention which it
had received, having been what ol.
might term, thrown in a coffin, which
contained no lining and but a verv
email pillow, part excelsior and part
email blocks, with no appliances
such as are used to prevent the
body from shaking about' Woree than
all, the proper clothing had not been put
on the body, a night gown being the
only garment of clothing, and -her hair
seemingly had not been combed for
some time, and hung over her face. In
fact her friends were not permitted to
eee her nntil a robe had been subati
tuted and she bad been placed in a neat
Presumably it was thought the coffin
would not be opened ; bnt were it not
is this a fitting bariai for any hnman
being, much less one who in her sane
momenta was as refined a" young lady as
could be found, and of more than ordi
nary intelligence? -Certainly the state
is not expected to bury' its dead in an
elaborate casket, but surely a ' lining of
some kind ehould be placed therein, and
if not that, some wearing apparel should
cover the body other than a gown, and
the hair might be arranged or the body
placed so that it would not jolt aronnd
in the coffin. No pauper dead, no
tramp, or even Indian, in Wasco county
ever receives such a burial at the hands
of the county, and we sincerely trust
and must say believe, this is an ex
ceptional case of a body being Ehipped
by the state in any such manner.
Miss Donaldson was no pauper, but
sufficient property was left by her father
to give her a respectable burial, which,
thanks to friends, the received. She
has a large number of friends hrre who
are juetly indignant at the manner in
which ber.remaina were treated.
A question just here suggests itself to
everyone, if the dead rtceive such treat
ment, how about the living? -
The Chboxiclb dislikes very much to
complain, but surely something is "rot
ten in Oregon" when ' such proceedings
are allowed, to go on within its bounda
