CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
Pasties desiring offices In The Oregon
Ian building:, may Inquire o Portland
Trust Company of Oregon. No. 123 First
street, or the superintendent in the build
ing. The Wam. Fell With a Crash. The
wrest vrall of the old Cathedral building, at
Third and Stark streets, was thrown about
- o'clock yesterday afternoon, causing a
crash which shook the earth and all the
buildings around, and caused a crowd 'to
rush to the scene. The walls of the build
ing were so flrmly held together by the
cement used in the mortar that it was a
very difficult Job to pull them to pieces,
Smd a. great many of the bricks were brok
en. It was therefore determined, as the
TOost speedy and economical plan, to throw
The -.'hole side wall down at once. "Wedges
were driven along in the wall near the
bottom and jackscrews were brought Into
play, and, when all was ready, the wedges
were driven home, and the wall began to
topple to its fall. It took about half an
hour to get it started, and it moved very
Klowly until well beyond the perpendicu
lar. Then it came down like forty thous- J
ana or brick, with a roar and a crasn ana,
a great rising of dust. The -whole mass
broke up in huge blocks, and these can
now be broken apart more easily, and
about 50 per cent of the bricks can be
saved, to be used in the temporary build
ing to be erected on the site.
For New Lighthouses. Major Post, IT.
tS. engineers, who is lighthouse engineer of
the thirteenth district, has considerable
lighthouse construction In prospect. The
flrst task to be undertaken is the light
house and fog-signal station at the mouth
of the Coqullle. This Is to be a stone, fire
proof structure, and construction will be
begun as soon as the contract is let and
bpproi'cd by the chief of engineers. Plans
tind estimates are being prepared for a
l.ghthouse at the entrance to Gray's har
bor. This is to be a. very fine one, of brick,
and is to be located on the south side of
the harbor, on Peterson's point. Then
there Is to be a first-order light on North
head, which will be of more service to
shipping than the light on Cape Disap
pointment. A further appropriation will
be needed for this work, which has been
under consideration for some time. There
is also to be a lighthouse and fog signal
at the mouth of the Willamette, the plans
for which are about ready to send to
Washington. It will probably be construct
ed during the coming summer. The light
will be visible from the higher parts of the
city, and will give this port quite a sea-
The Lime Slacked. Workmen have
been employed for several days in tearing
up and relaying a section of the marble
floor of the basement of the city hall, 15
or 30 feet square, just north of the main
entrance. The floor had bulged up, and
the reason was not understood until the
tiles and concrete had been removed. The
hoisting machinery used In moving mate
rial during the construction of the build
ing had stood on the spot where the floor"
bulged up, and, as it was one of the last
things to be removed, tho ground had been
leveled up for the concrete by throwing in
alotof earth, broken tiles and other debris.
Among the stuff there happened to be a
lump of lime, which, when buried, grad
ually absorbed moisture from the earth,
and began to "slack. In doing so, it cre
ated steam or gas, which brought about
pressure enough to lift the concrete and
the floor laid upon it. The matter is all
put t rights, nqw.nd ihe. contractors
think" they wllf be able to hold the floor
level for the future.
Dr. Gaff Still in Jail. In custody of
Deputy Sheriff Wheeler. Dr. John V. Gaff
was about the city yesterday, endeavor
ing to find some one who would go his
53000 bail, so that he would not be com
pelled to stay In jail. He was not success
ful, and last night occupied his usual quar
ters in the genteel corridor of the county
jail. The fact that his wife has instituted
proceedings for divorce from him, and will
claim her share of what property he has,
may prevent his securing bondsmen. While
Gaff was out trying to get bail, the grand
2ury was investigating the charge against
him. Judge Smith and his daughter Mag
gie, -who was the victim of Gaff's wily per
suaslons were both at the courthouse,
and their presence there was supposed to
be as witnesses before the grand Jury.
The examination of Gaff is set for this
morning, before Justice Gelsler, but, if
action has been taken by the grand jury,
aud a true bill found, the formality of a
preliminary hearing will not be necessary.
Gain in Public Schools. The public
schools reopened Monday, with an attend
ance of 8779. The number In attendance
when the schools began on the same day
lastycar was S521, showing an increase ths
car over last of 25S; and there were about
200 more pupils the following day. The
number of pupils who reported at the high
Mrhool on opening day was 6S0. Including
2"0 of the graduates from the grammar
hools, of whom probably 140 will remain
permanently. There Is always more fluc
tuation In the nlsh school than In the
rrrammar schools. The scarlet fever and
d'phtheria. have disappeared from the
southern part of the city, and the 90 pupils
from the Children's Home are all back in
t c Failing school again. Out of all the
cases of scarlet fever and diphtheria at the
South End only one proved fatal, a child
hamg died of diphtheria.
To RrrAiu the Ferrt. Superintendent
Thielscn, of the Portland Consolidated
Itailway Company, has employed Messrs.
Paoquet & Smith to raise the Vancouver
ferrj-boat. which was sunk a few days
t.nce. and bring her to this city to be re
paired. They sent over a boat yesterday
with the necessary barges, men and tools,
to do the work, and expect to have the
boat here in three or four da s. Just what
the extent of the damages Is, or how long;
It will take to repair her. cannot be told
t nil! after she has been raised. The Van
coj?r people will be glad when she Is
back on the ferry again, so that teams can
be crossed, which cannot be done with the
boat now In service.
Mrs. Rhed VIbits Her Husband. Mrs.
J. C, Reed, wife of the mlnlstor-bank-rob-ber,
called at the county jail to see him,
and, by the kindness of Jailer Chamberlin,
was given the use of his private room for
the purpose of holding an Interview with
her husband. It was the flrst visit of Mrs.
Heed since her husband's incarceration,
and she rematned some time. Reed looks
well, and has recovered from the nervous
ness which his exciting experience occa
sioned. According to all accounts, he has
thus far made no efforts to secure ball.
Armort to be Repaired. The county
ommlssioners were "in session yesterday,
transacting routine business. Road mat
ters received the usual attention, and it
was decided to advertise for bids for repair
cf the West Portland bridge. The com
m.ssioners also agreed to have some re
pa'rs made to the Armory, which have
been regarded as necessary by the military

Arouxd the Plaza Blocks, The com
mittee on parks and public property, who
were authorized some time since to con
tract for posts and chains to inclose the
plaza blocks, yesterday opened bids for
supplying the posts. They are to be of
cast-iron, four feet in height above the
ground, and quite ornamental. Five bids
were received for furnishing 169 posts,
which will be one for every 20 feet. The
highest bid was 103S 40, and the lowest
was by Robert Collier & Co., for 5CQ0, and
to them the contract was "respectfully
awarded." The chains to be stretched be
tween these posts and attached to hooks
on each, will cost about 5140. While it is
generally considered desirable that there
should be some protection around the
plara blocks, many think the expense
might have been avoided for a year or
two, till' times are better and city expenses
(have been reduced. The posts and chains,
if stable enough to support the boys who
will swing on them and the loafers who
will lean against them, will last for many
War-Song Concert. At an early date,
possibly the latter part of this month,
a war-song concert will be given under
the auspices of the Citizens League,
which promises to be unusually Interest
ing. Committees are now organizing to
have in charge the various features of the
entertainment. The songs of the war,
military music and picturesque scenes in
the war will make it unique and attrac
tive. The Citizens' League Is studying
the needs, and Is entering upon its mis
sion of moral reform an'd prevention of
vice and crime In the city. It will re
quire money, and as the voluntary efforts
of its members will be in behalf of the
city's Interests, they believe the citizens
will show their appreciation by lending
cordial assistance in making the concert
A Great Real Estate Deal. The
United States Mortgage Company of New1
Tork has successfully financed the great
est real estate deal ever recorded in this
country, -whereby over 2i miles of Brook
lyn city water-front passed into a single
ownership, at a cost of 530,000,000. In clos
ing the transaction they gave their check
for over 512,000,000. being the largest which
ever passed through the New York clearing-house.
The title was insured for $20,
000,000 by the Title Guarantee & Trust
Company of New York. The United
States Mortgage Company is represented
here by the Title Guarantee & Trust Com
pany of Portland, which has Invested for
them more than 51.000,000 in the past year,
and has money on hand for choice loans
in any amount.
Know All About Carpets. Very neat
new carpets were laid yesterday in the of
fice of the city treasurer and the commit
tee rooms of the council. The committee
on accounts has become quite expert in
the matter of Brussels carpets, and can
tell, by counting, how many threads there
are to a frame, and it knows all about
"jute filling." The council chamber car
pets are being looked after by the city hall
commission. A carpet is to be laid in the
office of the school clerk, which is also the
meeting room of the board of school di
rectors, and when the new railing in front
of the vault is completed and the desks o
the directors arranged, it will be a very
Chairs That Crossed the Plains.
Speaking of the chairs in use In tho money
order department In the postofflce In Port
land, an Idaho man said yesterday that
they could not be very bad, as the post
office had not been furnished more than 20
years, while the life of a chair is an in
definite number of years. He said that,
when the land office at Boise was furnish
ed, some S3 years ago, six hickory chairs
were among the articles brought out by
ox teams for that purpose. A short time
sincoamodest request for some new chairs
was preferred, but was offset by an in
quiry from the department as to what was
the matter with the chairs furnished?
The Dull, Dreart East. Mr. L Hodg
son, Jr., and family arrived, here yeeterdayf
morning from the East, He says they were
all sick for a visit to Oregon, as the cli
mate has been, so vile East that It requires"
a constant struggle to keep alive there. Mr.
Hodgson has lately visited St. Paul. Min
neapolis, Omaha and Chicago, and says
there is more life and activity visible here
than in any of those cities, and that Port
land people have no cause for complain
ing. After remaining here awhile, Mr.
Hodgson and family will proceed to Cali
fornia for a visit. He says his residence
on the coast has spoiled him for living

Into the face of Deputy District Attorney
Fitzgerald, as the terrible charge was read
to him. At the conclusion, Mr. Stoddard,
his attorney, entered a plea of not guilty,
and asked that the examination be con
tinued until Friday, which was granted.
Piles Driven Seventy Feet. The work
of driving piles for the foundation of the
O. R. & N. Company's coal-bunkers at Al
bina progresses slowly. The piles have to
be driven into the ground a distance of 70
feet, which takes a good while, and only
14 or 13 can be driven per day. When the
piles get down 40 or 50 feet, they drive
hard, and it takes a good many thumps
with a 2300-pound hammer to force them
the rest of the way. As they are 100 feet
long there is still SO feet of them above
ground when the driving is completed.
All Italians Discharged. A communi
cation was sent to The Oregonian a few
days since, complaining that all the men
employed on the excavations at reservoir
No. 3 were Italians. It appears that such
was the case, but, when the attention of
the foreman was called to the fact, he dis
charged all the Italians, and now only
Americans legally Americans, at least
are employed. It will now be In order for

St. Loni' Capitalists Howpltnbly Re

The party of St. Louis capitalists who
passed yesterday in Portland are highly
pleased, not only with the manner of
their reception, but the substantial evi
dence met on every side of the stability
of Poitlend and the great opportunities
that the city offers for the safe investment
Yesterday morning the party of visitors,
under the guidance of a special committee
of the Chamber of Commerce, made a tour
of the city in carriages, visiting the va
rious places of interest, including the City
Park. The two big reservoirs and the
general system of the new water supply
for Portland Interested the gentlemen
greatly. At noon the entire party took
lunch at the Commercial Club, as guests
of the Chamber of Commerce. In addition
to the visitors the following gentlemen
were also present: Mr. J. B. Montgomery,
Ellis G. Hughes, Mayor George P. Frank,
D. D. Oliphant, president of the Chamber
of Commerce; Theodore Wygant, Colonel
C. F. Beebe, F. K. Arnold. F. S. Bos
worth, J. Thorburn Ross, and Mr.
Donald Bradford, ex-mayor of Hel
ena, Mont. The latter had joined
the party at his home, and ac
companied it on its Western tour. An
Inviting menu tempted the appetites of the
visitors, and full justice was done to the
spread. There were plent of Oregon red
apples there, and they proved a special
attraction to tne guests, and the merits
of apples gene-aily formed an interesting
subject of conversation for a time. Mr.
Montgomery said he did not want to brag,
but he would say that Oregon produced
the best apples in the world, and, as the
time for luncheon was short, on account
of other arrangements made, he would
advise his St. Louis friends to fill their
There was no speech-making, as the
limited time would not permit of that,
but Judge William F. Boyle, on behalf
of himself and associates, took the op
portunity presented while coffee was be
ing served to extend thanks for the at
tention paid them in Portland. The kind
ness shown was in keeping with the rep
utation of the Pacific coast. They were
aU more than pleased, and would go
home with pleasant recollections of the
metropolis of the great Northwest. Dur
ing the afternoon the party was taken
to Oregon City to see the plant of the
General Electric Company, and the im
mense water power there, returning early
In the evening.
Last night Mr. J. B. Montgomery enter
tained a number of the party at dinner
at his residence, 271 Seventh street. The
number of guests was only limited to the
size of his table, and those present had a
most enjoyable time, not only In the dis
cussion of a well-served dinner, but also
of topics concerning Oregon and Port
land, and the opportunities afforded for
the investment of capital and development

The party will leave this morning fcr
home over the O. R. & N. and Northern
Pacific lines, and the favorable impression
made upon the minds of all will doubtless
result in the return of some to this city
at no distant day, to make a closer study
of the advantages presented to capital m

In the. lumberbulness that, is, .of an in
crease In bales but there is not much
prospict of any advance in the price.
A dealer said yesterday that compara
tively few logging camps are running, and
an Increase in the demand for lumber
might cause a log famine. Mr. J. Ordway
says there is no danger of any scarcity
of logs. It Is true that there are not a
great many logging camps running, for
logger? practically got nothing for their
logs, and so could not stay In the busi
ness. There Is, however, a large number
of loggers along the Columbia, and, if any
demand arises for logs, they will quickly
supply It. Logging is quite a different
business now slnco the introduction of
steam engines and cables into logging
camps, compared with what it used to be
when the slow-mcving bull teams had to
be relied upon to get out the logs. Mr.
Ordway says, by increasing his machinery,
he could get out logs enough to supply
any two mills on the river. This is not J
the season for logging, except where
machinery is used, but there are plenty
of logs along the river, and, by putting
in machinery, they t:an quickly be put
in tha water. The steam engine and end
less steel cable can keep a steady stream
of logs on the move, when the ground is
so soft that bull teams could not be
worked at all; so there is but little dan
ger of any log famine in the future, when
there is a fair price to be obtained for
Reports from the Sound are that all the
lumber mills on Puget sound are working
to their utmost capacity, and orders for
lumber are pouring in from different parts
of the world every day. The general tone
in this line is better than it has been
for tle past three years, and a prosperous
seat-on is looked for during the spring
and summer months. Nearly all the sea
going vessels on the coast are, it is said,
being placed in condition for this trade,
and before another month passes, the
harbors of n number of the mills on the
Sound will be full of ships.

AVnnhinrton. Legislator to Examine
School for Defective Yonth.
A Washington legislative committee ar
rived from Olympia last evening on the
way to Vancouver, where the state school
for defective youth is located. The mem
bers of the committee are John Liilie,
chairman; T. C. Van Eaton, C B. Rey
nolds and William McAuley, of the house,

the senate. All are republicans, except

Tuesday was spent by the committee
at Chehalis on an official visit to the
state reform school, which is located
there, and the legislators are loud in thir
pratee of the manner in which the insti
tution is conducted. "The Washington
reform school." said Chairman Liilie last
evening, "is one of the Jew Institutions
of the kind In the country perhaps. In
deed, th only oue where neither fences
nor armed guards are required to keep
the inmates from successfully attempting
to escape. The school is situated almost
in the heart of a forest, and yet there
has been only one escape during the past
two years, with an average attendance of
nearly 15. It is quite a remarkable thing,
and Is due to the splendid management
of Superintendent Westendorf, who seems
to be loved and respected by every in
mate of the school, and yet is a firm
disciplinarian. No credit-mark system is
used by Professor Westendorf, who seems
to have practically demonstrated the
value of a bold theory that no one has
ever before dared to test. Another re
markable thing about the management
of the Chehalis school Is the fact that
It will allow several thousand dollars of
the appropriation of last session to revert
back to the state treasury, and this, too,

inmates exceeds the estimate of two
Fifty Per Cent Stock Signed.
Mr. Caauncey Ball, of Mount Tabor,
stated yesterday that 50 per cent of the
stock of the Fruitgrowers" Union had
been signed and taken, and that the elec
tion of dtrctn'-s and oTii-n. will probably
take place at the tt meeting Th.
union is the outgrowth of the effort made
by the fruitgrowers xf Mount Tabor to se
cure concert of action in prices on their
products a year ago. For practical pur
poses it failed, and it is thought an in
corporated body might tecure better re
sults. The capital stock was then placed
at 5100O and the price of a share at 55. For
several months past the committee hav
ing the stocfebooks has been engaged in
getting the stock taken so permanent or
ganization might be effected. This has
now been accomplished, end the next step
will be the organization.
IN GEISLER'S COURT.
EdTrard "Wise and Hi Trouble About
Edward Wise, charged with the larceny
of a ring, wdl have his examination con
cluded on Saturday. It was taken up
on Tuesday, but continued in order to se
cure witnesses. A brother and sister-in-law
of the accused are the witnesses
against him. and they alleged that the
ring was stolen nearly three years ago.
A week ago, Wise was arrested on the
same charge, but the charge of larceny
was dismissed, as the statute of limita
tions barred any prosecution. Wise was
then rearrested for the same offense un
der the charge of larceny from a dwelling.
The defendant was arrested some time ago
for opening a letter, and taking a check
therefrom, addressed to a person of his
name. He had H. E. Battin endorse the
check, and when it was learned that'Wlse
was not the rightful owner of the check,
he was arrested, and he is now awaiting
trial under 5500 bonds. Wise has com

from the testimony adduced, he was
found guilty and fined 510. If he is not

We have completed our Inventory and
closed" our baol:sfonT483J. We wlBh to
thank our i riendsjcfti their kind patronage,
and tako pride in .stating that our trade,
since removing to our new store, corner
Third and Oak streets has been far ahead
of our most Fanguine expectations. It
proves that the public appreciates honest
values and fair dealing. Our aim has
been and will be to give good, reliable
clothing at reasonable prices. We are
making at our mill In Albany Ilne3 of
neat, desirable patterns in cheviots, casst
meres and tweeds for spring and summer
trade. We have also placed our advance
orders for the latest effects in imported
fabrics. These, as "well as our own make
of goods, will be made in regular, short
and stout, long and slim, and extra sizes,
enabling us to fit any ono. Our country
order trade by samples has Increased so
that we were obliged to open a separate
department for same, and we send sam
ples and cuts of all lir.es, with plain rules
for measurement, free to any address.
This coming season we intend to devote
more attention to our boys' and children's
department, and shall carry full lines of
novelties and staples. Our uniform de
partment has been a great success. We
equipped the Oregon National Guard, Port
land military band. Oregon Soldiers'
Home, American District Telegraph Com
pany, Pacific Postal Telegraph Company,
reform school. United States Jlfesavlng
service and many others. We are pre
pared to submit bids for uniforms for any
organization, as our electric factory is
complete in every respect. We employ
white labor at both factory and mill, and
the money paid us for clothing remains
on the coast.
To make room for our spring stock, we
have decided to allow a discount of 10 per
cent on every article in our stock, includ
ing four lines of Steln-Bloch Co.'s blue
and black extra-long kersey overcoats,
which were delayed in transit. As our
prices were reasonable before the cut.
an extraordinary opportunity is offered
for a short time. For the same reason we
offer in our custom-tailoring department
to make suits to order in cheviots, tweeds
and casslmeres for SIS. and pants for 51 60.

THE WHOLE CLOTH.
That's the way a good many tales are
manufactured out of nothing: but our
suits are made from the very best mate
rialsheep's clothing. You are fleeced like
a sheep when you wear one of our all
wool suits, but you'll be fleeced the
wrong way If you go somewhere else
and pay all-wool prices for a worthless,
shoddy mixture that'll look seedy in no
time. The material and make-up of our
clothing are both above par. That's just
the reason why it always pays to get in
side one of our all-wool examples of the
current style, that offer unequaled value
in quality and wear.
