The atwvemee t obnoxious.
Berlin, August 31. The liquor deal
ers of the capital are combining in oppo
ut ion to tbe proposed law restricting tbe
sale of liquor, and especially tbe clause
requiring them te go into the restaurant
tiusmess, wnicD is already overdone in
Berlin, as the Germans here refuse to eat
at borne. Tbe clauses as to age and sell
ing to drunkards are also considered ob
noxious, on tbe ground thai tbe dealer
cannot readily tell tbe age of a customer,
cr whether be is a drunkard. Tbe whole
measure is considered in the line of tee
totalism, and as imposing restrictions
obnoxious to tbe German ideas or per
sonal liberty. The advocates cf tbe bill
claim that drunkenness is increasing in
Berlin ; tbat increasing instances of id
toxicants have been observed, and tbat
some res'rtctive action is necessary to
abate and restrain the evil.

performs with half a dozen ferocious lions,
all let loose in a circus ring. He has edu
cated the ferocious monsters so tbat re is
able to harness them to chano'U, and drive
them around the arena, and he feeds them
from bis hapd, makes the brutes form lofty
Dvramida. dance, leap, play sen-saw, and
even ride tricycles. It is said to be the
most wonderful exhibition of animal train
ing the world baa thus far seen. If Boone
bad lived in tbe Bahylonian era, when tbat
wicked old king, Nebuchadnezer, was in bis
glorv. he woold bave surprised the Baby
lonian monarch more than did tbe Godly
DanieL whom be caused to be cast into a

Daniel, the modern lion tamer, will live in

Daniel and his lions can be seen in tbe

searching for the budy of Todd Bingham,
the lawyer. He was accompanied by Dr.
John Bingham, of Walla Walla, brother of
tbe deceased, who left last night for home.
Joseph Knott and his sister still remain at
the scene of the tragedy. Mr. Perkins says
' they bave been patroling the beach up aud

was instantly killed by being burled against

Mr. Chas. E. Hoight, the proprietor of
the city restaurant, had a rare experience
at one of his tables during the noon hour.
A young lady and gentleman occupied one
of tbe tables, and after eating for a white
came to tbe counter and the gentleman de
posited fifty cents, but asked if they could
not come back and finish the meal. Mr.
Haight, always good-natured, said in his
most polite manner, "Certainly." At this
the young lady proceeded to the table and
took all the dishes and deposited them on a
table in the kitchen, saying she would not
give the waiters the trouble to reset the
table, but when tbey came back tbey would
simply place their dishes on an empty ta
ble and finish eatiog.
We frequently hear of acts of vandalism
committed by some of onr boys, and the
last that has come to our notice is breaking
down fruit trees surrounding unoccupied
residences. One day this week a neighbor
was passing a house on the corner of Lib
erty and Ninth streets, and saw three or
four boys pulling down tbe limbs of some
very nice fruit trees. He hallooed to them
and gave chase; but, by cutting through a
hole in tbe fence, tbey managed to escape.
In their hurry one of the boys left a dinner
pail behind, and the gentleman took tbis
and handed it to Mr. C. Howe, our night
policeman, and the boy can bave this by.
applying to him. If they are known tbey
will surely be prosecuted for tbe offense, as
an example should be made of some one to
step further acts of tbe kind.
Mr. Isaae Perry and Mr. Cbas. Mc Far-
land camped a few days oa Wind river
last week, and say the creeks are almost
entirely denuded of fisti, since Mr. A. Hu-
guenin, tbe artistic angler, threw bis book
in those streams. It is not generally known
that Aleck caught more trout and killed
more game than any man who baa visited
VY ind river for the past ten years. Speak
ing oi Mr. Huguenine it is not generally
credited that President Hertenstein, of
the republic of Switzerland, who took
the executive chair on Jan. 1. 1888.
and holds his office for fonr years, bad re
signed in favor of Mr. uugaeoin, and that
tbe Standerath and Nationalratb has sent a
commission to request bis return to his na
tive country. During tbe festivities of the
celebration ot the 600th year of Swiss in
dependenceit is not probable that President
Hertenstein would resign his position. -
No one in the large audience which as
sembled last eyening to enjoy the final one
of the series of entertainments in connec
tion witb the institute failed to note the
omission of a number of names in the reso
lution of thanks. Miss Jennie Long, of
Portland, for tbe superb rendition of tbe
numbers obosen, deserves a higher tribute
of praise tban tbe imperfect pencil of the
reporter can furnish. Especially fine was
her rendering of Tennyson s "Sisters," in
response to the encore so spontaneously
awarded her. Miss Annie Lang, by her
deft touch and thorough knowledge of tech
nique, was ot great service to Portland's
matchless singer, Mrs. wetzeiL and shewed
conclusively that she possesses that rarest of
faculties, the ability to completely enter
into, and subtly to interpret tbe spirit of
the composer. Both Professors VVetxell
and Acker-man have labored bard and suc
cessfully to make the session of the insti
tute pleasant and profitable. These and
others sre certainly deserving of all honor.
We are unwilling to believe tbe current
rumor tnat, in at least one instance, tbe
omission wis intentions!. What matter If
a few paltry dollars are paid. Tbe roan or
woman who does good work in sncb a ease
this is entitled to all honor, and we
know we voice the sentiments of this com
munity when we say that those mentioned
and all tbe others who helped by essay,
song, speech or story to enlighten and in
struct are entitled to no small meed of
praise or stinted thanks. .

Wasoo Oountj Teachers' Institute.
From Friday's Dally.
Last night was a fitting close to the en
tertainments of the week by tbe teachers.
Tbe church was crowded to its fullest ca
pacity and many stood outside at the en
trances, unable to gain admittance. W
The first number on the programme, a
vocal quartette "Merrily, Merrily Bounds
the Barque" was exceptionally well ren
dered by tne GTee Club. Soft as the swell
ing sea came the tones from this eboir of
singers, and as the last soonds died away
the applause began to swell higher and
higher, until tbe full audience caught tbe
enthusiasm, and every one seemed deter
mined to bave it repeated. Prof. Aaron
Frazier, one of the most popular teachers of
Wasco county, read a most excellent paper
on "Two Great Lessons,' and this was lis
tened to with marked attention - This gen
tleman is a thinker, and gives expression to
no idea that bas not been most carefully
considered. His position on the subject
was supported by nine-tenths of those pres
ent. The sad, solemn cadence of the
'Burial at Sea," as sung by Messrs. H.
Ernst and Will S. Graham, was very im
pressive, and one could slmost imagine the
actual scene being acted before him. Prof.
Smith has made a study of the ''Sanitary
Conditions of our Schoolroom," and his
essay on this subject all that could be
sired. As usual the mandolin snd guitar
olub called forth anooore, and Miss Row
land and Mr. Mason responded in a beautiful .
selection. This musio is always appreci- ,
a ted, and the sweet tones seem to charm
and entertain at the same time. The clos
ing address was delivered by Mr. Troy J
Shelley, who dwelt upon the benefits de
rived by the present session of tha institute
and hoped tbat tbe future conventions
might be equally as successful. "Farewell
to the Mountains" was a thrilling song, and
as the last note died away it seemed to
echo a goodbye to our pleasant moon tain
environed city. Miss Long, the elocution
ist, gsye a select reading, which was well-
rendered and won tbe applause of the audi
ence. Tbis lady has devoted a long time
to the cultivation of her voice, and its in
tonations, modulation and volume are equal
to the same faculties possessed by anyone
in the state. She will always be a great
favorite with a Dalles audience, and should
she favor onr city with a future visit she '
will always receive the most marked atten
tion. Tbis was the close ofthe institute,
and there was not one in the Vast audience
that did not desire that it might continue
for another week ur fortnight.
At the meeting the following resolutions
