Reports from the Athn mining dis

will probably cause some Oregonians to
wish they bad remained where the
I golden opportunities are numerous. One
man in speaking of Atlin says the peo
ple who came out from" there last fall
must have been looking through glasses
which magnified a thousand times. One
prospector who is located close to the
famous claim vibich Capt. Sperry sold
at such an enormous price, eunk a bole
seventeen feet deep and made a cleanup
of $ 2.60. In the mining regions of Ore
gon a sharp prospector can clean up sev
eral times that much by merely looking
at his claim.
Articles of incorporation were filed
yesterday by the Gold and Silver Mining
Company of Antelope. The capital
stock is $150,000, divided into shares of
1,500,000, par value ten cents each
share. The principal office will be at
Tbe Dalles, and tbe incorporators are
W. N. Wiley. R. E. Saltmarehe and
J. B. Crossen. Five mines have already
been included in tbe incorporation, and
as it will be seen tbat it is virtually a
local affair, will no doubt receive the co
operation of many and prove a success.
Although in extremely poor health,
Mrs. C. E. Haight has determined to
attempt tbe trip to her old home and
relatives in Connecticut, hoping thereby
to receive benefit, or at least to spend
her last days with her own people. Her
friends here have deeply regretted tbe
serious illness of so longstanding, which
the estimable lady has been called upon
to suffer and while they also regret part
ing with her, it is with the hope that
she may improve thereby. Mrs. Haight
desires The Chronicle to express ber
tbanks to hei many friends for kindness
shown and to say to them that while
she will be unable to receive them be
fore her departure (some time during tbe
early part of next week), a card receiver
will be placed at ber parlor door, in the
building over Pease & Mays' store, and
she will be very glad to receive tbe cards
of any who may desire to leave them.
School Superintendent Gilbert baa for
the past week been making it a point to
visit tbe schools near the city, and yes
terday made a trip on his bicycle to
Chenowetb creek. Upon returning,
when about a half mile this side of the
school house, his wheel struck a large
rock and Mr. Gilbert was thrown about
fifteen feet onto eome rocks. He was
rendered unconscious for a time, and
when he came to, found that his hip and
back were so badly bruised tbat be was
unable to assist himself. As no one
happened along the road he lay there
from 1 till 4 o'clock, when a boy appeared
on the scene, and immediately went on
to tbe school house and informed the
teacher, who procured a team and came
to his assistance. He was then brought
home and has since been confined to
his bed. Mr. Gilbert's health has not
been the best for eome time, and the ac
cident is particularly unfortunate as be
will probably be laid up for several days
Although not a large crowd, it was an
appreciative audience that listened to
the violin recital of Elmore Rice last
evening at the K. of P. hail, and ap
plause was frequent as number after
number was perfectly rendered by the
artist, for such he most be who, unaided
save by the splendid accompaniment of
Prof. Birgfeld, entertains an audience for
almost two hours. The reporter feels
wholly incompetent to criticise the work
of a violinist; but at tbe same time we
know what pleases the ear and what ap
parently held other listeiit-r "pell bound
and such was the case last night. Better
violinists have perhaps visited our city ;
but 'tis seldom we have such an artist in
our midst. Each (-election was well
chosen and many weie so sweet and
touching as to almost bring tears to the
eyes; but the effect when Mr. Rice
struck the familiar strains of "Kentucky
Home" and "Suwanee ' River" was
electrical and the encore at the close
told of the appreciation, and the au
dience was repaid by that ever-pleasing
eelection "Traumerei." Mr. Rice left
today for his home in Olympia.
While I do not profess to be in opti
cian, twenty-five years practical exper
ience in fitting eyes enables me to give
better satisfaction than many of tboee
who do make such professions. I will
not try to "look wise" and bewilder you
with technical terms, but use such terms
as . far-sightedness, near-sightedness,
cataract, etc., those we can all under
stand. I will give you a comfortable fit,
at a moderate price. My glasses are the
very best tbat are mad?, and for $1 to

NOMINATING CITY OFFICERS.
Kick fur Mayor Blcetlon Will be
- Held Next Moadajr.
Although not so large a number as
ehonld have been interested in onr city's
welfare and the officers to be nominated,
attended tbe mass meeting last night at
the court bouse, perhaps 200 citizens
were present for the purpose of nomi
nating officers for the ensuing year.
John Gavin was chosen as chairman
and H. H. Riddell as secretary, after
which the meeting at once proceeded to
the business for which it had been
called. As is usual, enthusiasm seemed
to be lacking and there was but one
nomination for each office, and as these
seemed to meet tbe favor of all present,
no dissenting voice was raised.
Ex-Mayor Menefee took tbe floor as
soon as nominations were in order and
in very complimentary terms nominated
H. L. Kuck for mayor of tbe city.
Mayor Nolan seconded the nomination,
and as no further nominations were
made, on motion of F. W. Wilson tbe
secretary cast the ballot for H. L. Kuck.
T. J. Seufert then nominated G. J.
Crandall, tbe present treasurer, for re
election to the office. No other nomi
nations being made on motion tbe ballot
was cast for C. J. Crandall for treasurer
of the city.
Nominations were next in order for
water commissioner at large, and John
Micbell named J. F. Moore, and a
ballot was cast in bis favor by the sec
retary. It was then arranged that a meeting
for nominating councilmen and water
commissioners be held in tbe various
wards Friday night. The meeting for
the First ward will be held in the
council room ; for tbe Second, at the cir
cuit court room and for the Third, in
tbe county court room.
We bave beard no further names
mentioned as candidates for tbe
mayoralty, and indeed, we doubt if a
better nomination could have been
made. Such an office ehouid be filled
by one who has proven his worth and
his interest in the city. Such an one is
H. L. Knck, who during his term as
councilman has been faithful in tbe few
things required of him, and deserves to
be made the rul.r over many thinge.
Especially has his ability aB a financier
of tbe city's affairs been shown to good
advantage, he haying fathered the sink
ing fund project and others of a like
nature. He has also made a success of
bis own business affairs and therefore is
the more competent to serve the city.
Mr. Crandall might also be said to
have proven a "treasure" in tbe office
he has so successfully filled and no
doubt will be re-elected.
Mr. Moore is a good man for the place
of water commissioner at large, and The
Chronicle is glad he was nominated.
We only hope that in filling tbe re
maining offices such good material will
be found as candidates for them.

of Dufur, with his family left for a short

stay :n rnriiana, leaving in a piace ana
iill coi. netted therewith in charge of
Frank Collins. No pooner had his em
ployer gene than Collins proceeded to
dispose of lleniiricka' horses and ap
propriate the money. He brought a
team u.'o Ti e Dalles and sold one to
Murchie ui.d another to Lewis Porter.
He also sold several dozen egg, etc., and
bought goods for himself.
Learning of his proceedings Wilbur
Hendricks wrote to his brother and
asked if he had authorized such sales.
Being answered to the contrary, he tele
phoned to Sheriff Kelly last night at
10 o'clock and asked him to hunt up
Collins, who was in town trying to dis
pose of a fine sorrel team belonging to
his brother. Mr. Kelly at once began
his search and found him in Skibbee's
saloon under the influence of liquor.
The man protested Baying he was not the
man, but, assisted . by Mr. Thrall, tbe
sheriff started for the cohrthonse with
him. Ou the way they discovered a
Smith & Weston revolver in his pocket,
which they appropriated. Upon almost
reaching tbe courthouse he got away
from tbem, but only a short distance,
and was captured again, when he was
landed in jail, where Wilbur Hendricks
identified him later.
The sheriff-did not rest until he had
discovered who' bad the' first horses
sold, and found that one was here and
the other across the river, so they will
be returned to tbe owner.
