A few days ago the Chronicle spoke
of a man and woman who were opium
fiends and had been wandering about
tbe city, but when provisions were
taken to them they could not be found
and it was supposed they bad left town
Yesterday morning August Bucbler aent
word to tbe marshal tbat a man and
woman were camped in tbe place where
his bogs are kept, and tbat he desired
them removed for tear they might set
fire to tbe premises.
Tbe officer at once went to the place
and found the woman, but she said her
husband was away ; tbat he had gone
down to try and get help from the
county. In the afternoon tbe woman
was taken to tbe city jail, and later tbe
man was found and locked up.
Tbey put in a plea to be sent to the
insane asylum to be broken of tbe ter
rible habit. Judge Mays refused, how
ever, as there is no ground for such a
procedure. ' What disposition will be
made of them has not as yet been de
cided, but tbey will probably be sent
out of town.
They are a young couple about 25
years of age, and give tbeir names as
Gray. It eeems that tbe . man was
brought up by Cbas. Doyle, on 8-Mile,
buc has fallen into tbe dope habit of
late years, and with tbe woman, who
claims to be bis wife, is a total wreck,
Dalles people can iyew rest ansurred
that an opportunity will be afforded
tbem to go down tfie river and meet tbe
returning soldir boys. Everybody
wants to go, and sufficient means will
be afforded to accommodate all who can
get away. '
Great plans are being made in Port
land, and all passenger steamers, or as
many as are deemed necessary, will be
placed under tbe control of Capt. E. S.
Edwards, 17. S. local inspector, who will
form them into a equadrontwo abreast
and go dowji as far asSt. HelenB to
escort tbe transport up (he river. Each
steamer will be listed to carry a certain
umber of passengers and a rate of $1
from Portland will be charged. The re
ceipts will then be turned over to Capt
Edwards to be used for the entertain
ment fund. It is thought about 10,000
or 15,000 people will take advantage of
the opportunity to meet the boys and
As to the people of our city. Agent
Allaway, of the D.P. & A. N. is very en
thnslastic over the matter, and will do
all in his power to give our own boys a
oyal welcome. Indeed, be is already
planning all sorts of schemes to that end.
Uapt. Edwards has agreed to send np
300 tickets for those who desire to go
from here, and the Regulator will be
used on tbat occasion. It is thonght tbat
will not be sufficient to accommodate
all, and, if tbe height of tbe river will
permit of the Dalles City being brought
up, tbat too can be brought into use
As no donbt many friends from the
country will desire to join us, more than
one steamer will be needed. .
The plan is to arrange to go down tbe
night betore so as to join tbe procession
n the morning, and it is thought ar
rangements can be made for sleeping ac
commodations on tbe boats. Anyway,
we'll all be there and on band to send
up cheer upon cheer .y We will have the
good old steamers oy onr own line gaily
decorated and mfeke them look so at
tiactive tbat ourboys will have the best
welcome of all.
Mr. Allaway would be glad if different
citizens would suggest a deeien to be
used as our banner. As soon as it is de
termined about what time they'll reach
tbe Columbia, then plans will be carried

The Salem Sentinel continues to speak
freely regarding tbe manner in which
the state insane asylum is conducted.
In Saturday's issue it' says:
"Friends of the present asylum ad
ministration say the Sentinel has been
too eevere in its criticism of loose
methods at that institution. To all
such critics we would say, tbe half has
not been told. There is even yet talk of
an official investigation of the mysterious
death at that institution of Del Main,
and of another unattended patient who
during tbe state fair was permitted to
ride a hobbv horse on the merry-go-
round. Becoming dizzy, ehe fell off and
her neck was broken. It eeems tbat
tbe price of a place there now is for the
employe to keep his mouth shut say
nothing and saw wood.
"Much criticism is made of tbe
method of handling the private funds of
patients. Tbey are said to be asked
wbat they require, and are then made
to sign a receipt in blank. The word
ing of these receipts affords a lovely
opportunity for minor grafts and tbe
working off of old, second-hand or
shoddy clothing at a nice price.
"Tbe manager is said to retain several
employes who are wholly incompetent.
Not only that, he has created new
offices, with big salaries, has assessed
and collected enormous political assess
ments. Last year he bled tbe employes
for about $1100. One Democrat refused
to contribute to the fund. He was
threatened with discharge, but as be
has no donbt learned by this time tbat
silence is golden, be retainsj bis job and
says nothing. On the whole, we incline
to the belief that should our critics in
vestigate tbe management of tbe insti
tution they would agree with ns tLat
