MODERATE TARIFF WANTED.
Wool Raisers Will Be Satisfied With Eight
Cents a Pound.
Several gentlemen largely engaged
the wool Industry . In this state ex
pressed themselves yesterday, says the
Oregonian. as being desirous of seeing
an 8-eent tariff duty placed on wool
rather than the higher duty contem
plated by the Dingley bill. Many feel
that extensive discussion of the sub
ject at the present time will have an
injurious effect by giving to enemies
of tariff opportunity far saying that
even some of the Western people
oppose such measures. More protec
tion is admitted by all to be a necessity
but the fear is entertained that -any
dispute as to the proper rate will con
vey the Idea to the manufacturers of
the East that It is not a matter of vital
importance in the minds of the wool
producers of the West. Just how the
difference between needed tariff protec
tion and tbe high rate contemplated
by the Dingley bill would be distrib
uted, in case the latter was enacted
into law, is not clear. The wool pro
ducer will feel the full effects of needed
protection, which is conceded by all to
be about 8 cents a pound, but whether
any additional rate will inure to- his
benefit or to other factors in the : in
dustry is not agreed upon. All unite
in the apprehension that the high rate
will have tbe effect of causing a' re
action that may eventually sweep away
all protection entirely.
A NEW MERCANTILE FIRM.
The Oregon Trading Company Organized
to Kngage In I!nsines4 at Wsco.
Arrangements have been perfected
for the incorporation of the Oregon
Trading Company with a capitol stock
of $10,000 divided into shares of $50
each. Tbe purpose of the incorpora
tion Is to engage in a general oner-
chandising business at Wasco, Sher
man county, and it is the purpose to
enter into business as soon as a suit
able building can be secured. -
The company will besides carrying a
full line of general merchandise will
also handle agricultural implements
and farm machinery. TBe gentlemen
who have entered into this incorpora
tion are Ed M. Williams, W. A. John
ston, A. C. Sanford, Geo. Crossfield
and E. O. McCoy, all of whom are well
and favorably known In business cir
cles here, and tho standing they have
in business is sufficient assurance that
the enterprise will bo conducted upon
purely business principles.
The business will be under the im-
edlate supervision of Mr. Crossfield,
who is well acquainted with the people
though the store was flooded and ; the
furniture considerably damaged by
water. The fire caught either from
fie electric light wires or from a box
of ashes in the Pacific corset factory,
which is immediately above the jewelry
store. The floor above and the ceiling
in the store were burned for a distance
of some three feet in length by about
18 inches in width, and some property
in the corset factory was damaged.
The damage to tho building is only
slight, Mr. Van Norden being the
principal loser, though his loss is fully
covered t-y insurance. Tbe building

ANOTHER JTOOL, BETTOR.
Wagered His Hair on Corbet t and Now Is
Miss Daisy Doud, the schoolmistress
of the Farallones, California, now car
ries with her in a little bag every hair
that was on the bead of Edward Cashin,
the lighthouse keeper on the same
islands. Miss Doud is as proud of her
bag of 'hair ; as any Indian who over
tore off the tuft of an enemy ii battle,
while poor Cashin goes about with bis
head as bald as a billiard ball and ex
periences the feelings of. a man who
has been scalped or shaved ala Chinese.
The Corbett-Fitzsimmocs fight is
responsible for it all. Miss Doud, like
nearly all the women, was sure Fitz
simmons would win, - while Cashin
figured Corbett as a cinch. The dull
hours on the Island were spent in
strong argument on the respective
abilities and chances of tbe two men
to win, and these arguments became
so heated that Miss Doud and the light
house-keeper entered into a wager of
the "Merchant of Venice" variety.
Miss Doud agraed, in case her favorite
pugilist was defeated, to buy for Cashin
the finest necktie in 'San Francisco,
wbile Cashin agreed to sacrifice his
flowing locks In case Corbett did not
prove a winner.
Now for the Kecrets Held in the Bowelfi
-"' of the Earth.
The diamond drill to boused in pros
pecting for coal on Chenowlth creek
has arrived, and there is now nothing
lacking to determine if The Dalles
shall become the great coalmining
region of the Northwest but labor to
put tho prospect hole down into the
hidden recesses of Mother Earth, and
discover if therein lies beds of bitumen
that are destined to beat the furnaces
ot prospestive manufacturing Indus
tries that are sure to follow the dis
covery of coal. .
The labor, Messrs. T. T. Nicholas &
Co. propose to furnish, and will begin
operations so soon as tho drill can be
taken to the. location .of the prospect
and set up. , The drill is quite a com
plicated affair, the machinery consist
ing of a contrivanee to be propelled by
steam power that -turns the drill, and a
thousand or more feet of extra-heavy
irou pipe which follows the drill down
the hole and through which the core
that is cut out of the rook is brought
to the snrface. "'
When the drill is placed in position
and work i3 begun, it is the purpose of
the company to push it along until the
question of coal or no coal is determ
inel. And upon tbe result depends to
a considerable extentthe future of The
Dalles. If a good vein of coal is dis
covered, The Dalles will furnish fuel
for Oregon, for with its advantages of
cheap rfver transportation. -it can sup
ply Portland and all Willamette valley
towns in competition with all comers,
and the field to the east, as far as Snake
river. Is open to the prospective Dalles
coal mines. Give us coal and we are
certain to become not only tbe great
commercial city of the Inland Empire,
but the greatest manufacturing center
of the Northwest, hence it is we all
hope Messrs. Nicholas & Co. will be
successful In their venture. '

Last Monday afternoon Mrs. Buchler
andMrs. Gosser were out west of the
city gathering flowers and were ac
companied by a little girl about six
years of age by the name of Belat. Re
turning they were crossing Mill creek
on the foot bridge above Ninth street
when thelittle girl fell into the water
and was carried down tbe swift stream
some distance. The ladles, almost
frantic with fright, started to her ret-
cue, but come to a barbwire fence
which they could neither get over or
go around. They could see the child
floating down the ' mad current, but
were unable to render assistance. Fort
unately they saw Jim Busha, an Indian
lad who is a cripple, and goes on
crutches, and called to bim to save the
drowning girl. Brave little Jim hob
bled to the stream, waded into the
rushing waters and rescued the child.
Little Jim takes no credit to himself,
considering his act only one which
humanity demanded that he should
perform, but it would be a handsome
reward for true bravery If the kind
people of The Dalles would give him
some substantial recognition for his

It was social night at tbe Degree of

invited a number of guests, who were
admitted after the routine business of

lowed by a vocal solo by Sidney
Young, a recitation by Mrs. Briggs

of the evening was brought on, a farce
entitled "The Awful Mystery," pro
duced by four young folks from tbe
high school, Misses Bubla Sterling
and May Elton, and Messrs. Arthur
Stubling and Vic Schmidt. The farce
was a lively one, affording much amuse
ment and plenty of opportunity for
laughter. " The social was concluded
with a dance, lasting almost till midnight.

Yesterday's Pendleton Tribune says:
"Chinook winds are prevailing in the
Blue mountains causing the streams to
become so swollen that the trains may
be tied up for a few days.' Last night's
west-bound train came through six
inches of water at Thorn Hollow.
"Bridges No. 76 at Cayuse and No.
90, three miles east of Bingham
Springs, are threatened and, at 5
o'clock this morning, a construction
train will leave Pendleton with twenty-
four men, if this number can be secured,
to be on hand in case of an emergency.
Twenty-eight men showed . up last
night in answer to the call but when
told what they were .wanted for only
thirteen wanted to work.'! ;
As tbe - west-bound . overland got
through all right last night, it is
presumed the bridges are still stand

E. C. Mahanny is missing from Grass
Valley and fear is expressed that it
was he who was found, dead near Tbe
Dalles last week and hurried without
identification after, an inquest by the
coroner. Moro Observer.
When the unknown man was brought
to The Dalles it was thought by some
that deceased was Mahanny, but such
was not the case, for Mr. Mahanny was
in the city last Tuesday very much
alive, and unless he was. hurried alle
and has filnce been resurected, the sui
cide could not have been the gentle
man who was missingi from Grass
Valley, hence the anxiety as to his
whereabouts need not worry his friends
in Sherman county. ;

Keligion ana civil authorities are
pretty badly mixed over at Walla
Walla. One Rev.. Dr. Mclnturff, a
revivalist who has been holding street
meetings in the city for several months
and who has indulged In 'the severest
strictures on the city- and county offi
cers, clashed with the police force last
Saturday when he was ordered to move
off the streets with one of his meetings.
The police, were resisted and in the
melee a woman named' Newman was
struck on the head by a policeman's
"billy." Three of Mclnturff 's follow
ers were arrested and' fined, and now
the evangelist has ' bad tbe chief of
police and Officer Conlin arrested,
charged with assaulting Mrs. Newman

A Correct View.
Judge Crowell, of Jackson couuty,
seems to have a correct view as regards
'to tbe turning over of the state taxes.
Replying to Judge Gray of Clatsop
county, who invited him to participate
iu the'move instituted to withhold the
state taxes says: . .
. "In reply I beg to say, that I would
like very much to retain the $16,000
that Jackson county has to. pay into
the state treasury, in circulation among
the taxpayers of Jackson county, in
stead of having the same lie idle, in the
state treasury for two years, but there
is no legal or lawful method by which
this cau be done. And I am not will
ing to advise our county treasurer to
disregard the law, his oath and his
bond by withholding from the state
treasury the money which it is his
duty to pay over to the state. I am
quite sure that our county treasurer
will obey the law and pay over the
state tax; and I am equally sure that
shall not advise him to commit an un
lawf vl act in this particular.
"I sympathize with the object
sought, but there is no lawful method
by which it can be done. I am a bi
metalist but not an 'anarchist' and
hence cannot aid or counsel the over
riding of the law." -
