Every onoe in a while we hear of some
man suing another for a big amount of
money for alienating a wife's affections. .
It does seem queer that the courts will
allow men to attempt through them to
obtain something for nothing. The

a wife's affections until ; some other
fellow has secured a title to then

knows how to appreciate. East Ore
gonian. As we read in the Oregonian last
night of the expensive drinking foun
tain which is to be donated to the city
of Portland by Hon. D. P. Thompson, it
just occurred to our minds how badly
The Dalles is in need of drinking places
scattered throughout the city. Not that
we expect any one to donate a $20,000
fountain to our little .city, but that we
should merely have some unpretentious
drinking places where manand beast
could quench their thirst. Then we
were reminded that the only one we
possess, that donated by the Epworth
League and situated near the land office,
is not fulfilling its mission, but had ap
parently run dry. What is the cause of
the water not being turned tn? The
fountain belongs to the city, and surely
she cannot refuse a cup of cold water to
thoee who, worn and wearv, knock at
her door and ask so small a favor.
Were half the exciting news to be ad
vertised regarding the Atlin district that
is daily being told by miners throughout
Oregon, there would be a rush in which
more lives wonld be lost in reaching that
section than ever before and cause for
mer records to pale into insignificance.
Oregon is a Klondike in itself if men
would only realize that the unattainable
is not all that is to be desired. Dailv
letters are received here regarding mines
which are "no slouches" themselvee.
Yesterday James Blakeney received a
letter from W. T. Young, who owns an
interest in the Spanish Gulch mines, In
which he said that matters were en
couraging there. The Sand Gulch Min
ing Company in sixteen days took oh t
$1500, the largest nugget being worth
$80, and several smaller ones irom $10 to
$30. - They are etill running day and
nigfet, and working twelve men. This
is the mine in which Isaac Joles, of this
city, is interested. - -

' During the past lew . months
Chronicle lias called attention to
act lDat tnere 9 a ca9B f K'rls,
iween the ages ot 14 and zu, in
Dalles, who are seriously in need of
parental control, or, if not that, more
severe measures should be used, as their
actions are such as will surely cause
them to come to grief. Seemingly hav
ing no homes, they can be found at any
hour of the day or night walking the
streets, and particularly numerous do
they make themselves when ah excur
sion or theatrical troupe visits the city,
apparently deeming it necessary to make
the male portion of the aggregation feel
at home. Not only has the paper called
the attention of parents to this fact, but
we understand the teachers in our
schools have endeavored to do their duty
in the matter, but to no avail.
When the Noble Dramatic Company
visited the city this was particularly
noticeable and the Chronicle mentioned
the fact when they left town, little
dreaming to what an extent these flirta
tions had been carried on, nntil the
developments of the past few days have
unraveled the truth and caused many to
feel shocked that in a Christian com
munity such proceedings have been go
It eeems that since that company was
here about six girlshave been corre
sponding with one of the troupe and
receiving questionable letters under a
fictitious name, which applied , to all.
Worse than all, and which can icirce
ly be credited, is the fact that not only
have these girls been corresponding with
a white member of the troupe, but so
low have they become that one of them
has continually been 'receiving letters
from the China cook who was with them
and who also has' been endeavoring to
presuade her to elope with him. This
seems to revolting to be believed, but is
none the less a fact.
The men may escape their just dues;
but what cf the girls? Yesterday
morning one of them boarded the boat
and left town. At ttie Cascades a
gentleman who knew her tried "to pre
vail on her to return, but failing, tele
graphed to her father, and this morning
Marshal Lauer was sent in pursuit.
We understand, he found her at Van
couver, but the question is, will it
do any good to bring her home? At any
rate these girls should not he permitted

This is only one scene in the drama
which must be enacted . by those who
have chosen to take part. For months
the better class of people have watched
these proceedings in horror, - but' not
daring to approach the parents, who
seem unconcerned. Not alone is it in
families where such things might be
expicted, but in respectable families
that these things occur.
The names of the parties are sup
pressed, not in sympathy for the parents,
who deserve no pity, for they are cer
tainly responsible for the characters of
their children who have been left, to
rnn wild; but because we cannot bear
to publish the names of girls whom we
have seen grow np in The Dalles, in

ceedings. Elmore Rice an Artifit,
