MISTERS' HOT TALE
CAUSTIC IJISCDSSION OVER SKVDA.T
Dr. Grant Unbridle HI Tonsnc-Dr.
yVallnca Dubs III Remarks "Un-
Sentlemanly anil xin-Clirlstlan."
The regular fortnightly meeting of the
Ministerial Association, of Portland,
which was heW yesterday, -was character
ized by the exhibition of a somewhat un
brotherly spirit in the discussion of cer
tain differences of opinion among the
usually mild-mannered clerical brethren.
The differences of opinion arose over the
subject of the Sunday newspaper, or,
rather, on the question of advertising
church notices in the Sunday papers. A
number of acrimonious expressions were
used, the pastor of one very prominent
church characterizing the remarks of the
pastor of another very prominent church
as "ungentlemanly and tin-Christian."
The question of advertising church no
tices In the Sunday press was taken up
some time ago, at one of the meetings
of the association. A resolution was then
passed requesting the newspapers to print
the notices Saturday, and not Sunday, add
ing that the practice then in vogue of
using the Sunday papers was an indirect
indorsement by the ministers of Sabbath
breaking. The Oregonian took the ground
that as It had teen in the habit of pub
lishing the Sunday notices free of charge,
it had a perfect right to say when such
Ifree notices should be published, and that,
while it would continue to publish the
notices, if desired, as usual, free of charge
on Sundays, it would expect remuneration
for notices published other days of the
week. This stand was acquiesced in by
those of the local clerical fraternity who
had scruples about Sunday advertise
ments. But there were several ministers
who apparently did rot consider Sunday
publication very sinful, as they continued
to request their notices to appear in the
Sunday issue. Lately the number of re
quests for Sunday insertion has been quite
as large as ever.
At the meeting of the Ministerial Asso
ciation two veek3 ago. Rev. Br. A. J.
Brown, of the First Presbyterian church,
introduced a resolution expressing regret
that certain members had not seen fit to
comply with the resolution about
Sunday closing. To pass this reso
lution would naturally be construed
as equivalent to a vote of cen
sure on such members. On motion
by Rev. John Morrison, the resolution was
voted to be laid on the table until next
meeting. At yesterday's meeting, after
the transaction of various business and an
address by Dr. George R. "Wallace on
"The Obligation of Churches in the Work
of Reform in Cities." Dr. Wallace took
up the subject of the resolution which
had been laid on the table at the pre
vious meeting. He spoke at some length,
protesting against the resolution. He
said: "This practically amounts to a
vote of censure. I have always been in
the habit of having church advertise
ments in the Sunday papers. It was my
habit in the East and it has continued
to be my habit since coming here. I have
publicly taken the ground that the Sun
day paper is an institution that has come
to stay, and to stay as an educator. I
must protest against this association as
suming the right to legislate for me or
for my church, or to seek to control the
relations of myself and that church with
the public I regret that there has been
carried into this association the same
unfortunate spirit manifested in church
affairs of the middle ages, when perse
cution for heresy was the order of the
At this point Rev. Dr. Roland D. Grant
arose and indulged in a number of very
caustic remarks, which were apparently
directed at Dr. Wallace. He said In ef
fect that the methods adopted by some
ministers to advertise themselves and at
tract numbers to their churches were al
together contemptible; that he was not
compelled to resort to sensational attempts
to attain notoriety in order to get any
body to come and listen to him; that
Sunday advertising was wrong and was
-upheld by suchmlnisters as he had de
scribed. Dr. Grant spqke quite rapidly,
his remarks gathering greater point and
bitterness, until Dr. Wallace, who felt
himself assailed, sprang up and asked
the chairman to call the speaker to "order.
"I want to say," said he, "that such
language as Dr. Grant Is using is not
characterized by a Christian spirit, that
his remarks are ungentlemany and un
christian and I request tho chair to call
him to order."
The chairman. Rev. G. E. Kawes, of the
First United Presbyterian church, said he
would like to be excused from taking any
decided stand, that Dr. Grant had made no
personal allusion to the extent of giving
any names, but that he felt that it was
the duty of all members to be not only
parliamentary, but Christian. Dr. Grant
resumed his remarks, saying that, while
iiis words had not been directed at Dr.
Wallace, If he felt that they applied to
him, he was welcome to them. Dr. Grant
denounced the press generally, and The
Oregonian in particular, and is said to
have asserted that its editor was an open
enemy to Christianity, and that he had
pworn to do all in his power to overthrow
The upshot of the whole matter was that
action on the resolution was postponed.
Technically speaking, the resolution itself
was not under consideration, in the ab
sence of its author. Dr. Brown. But, of
course, matters to which it related were.
At the next meeting of the association,
two weeks hence, the whole question of
the relation of the association to the mem
bers, it is expected, will be discussed. It
nill probably be then decided how far the
association shall exercise authority in.
pledging pastors and churches to any line
It has been difficult to obtain an account
of the meeting, as all the ministers were
very averse to making any statement or
giving any details regarding it, the gen
eral sentiment being that its publication
would not serve to make maters any
smoother. There is In the association a
standing resolution to the effect that the
proceedings of the association shall not be
given to the public, except by explicit di
rection of the secretary.
Both Dr. Grant and Dr. Wallace de
clined to discuss the matter. Dr. Grant
Baid: "There is nothing in the matter
which should be of any interest to the
public; nothing of any value for publi
cation. Why should the press go nosing
around trying to smell out something
sensational? Anything that is foul; any
thing calculated to belittle, or to bring
anything or anybody Into disrepute, the
press is sure to rake it up, while it
cltarges full advertising rates for any
thing calculated to be of benefit to the
public I Invariably put my notices in
the Saturday papers and pay regular
spac charges. I am the only minister in
the city who has always done this. The

Judge Shattuck decided yesterday that
bv city of Portland is not liable for the
payment of the value of a horse owned
by Peter Heft-, claimed by Hefty to have
ted in the dty pound by reason of inju

last'" week, when it was held upon one
side that the city, according to general
corporation law. was not responsible for
damages consequent upon the acts of its
officers, but thit. If there was any liability,
it was indivilaal with tho officer at fault.
It was contended in behalf of Heftys
claim that the poundraaster was the agent
of the city, appointed by the city to per
form certain duties, and that, in the case
of an office conducted for the purpose of
revenue, a corporation was liable, and that
the city pound was an office of revenue.
Judge Shattuck said he would look at the
city charter before rendering his decision.
He held yesterday that Hefty could not
bold the city for damages, but would have
to look to the poundmaster to get pay for

evenlng, about 6:30. The Infant was ac
cidentally discovered by Mrs. Slhlea, wife
of Mr. Ralph Sihlea, who resides In the
building. The child had been left in the
hall opening from their apartments,
about o o'clock, carefully wrapped up,
having been in the hall about half an
hour. At first she did not realize that the
bundle contained an Infant, and was
greatly surprised upon closer examination
to find the baby boy, healthy and ap
parently vigorous. Mrs. Slhlea took the
baby back into the house and exhibited
the remarkable find to her amazed hus
band. They found pinned to his clothes a
note with the quoted words. Mr. and
Mrs. Sihlea are childless, and the appeal
of the note touched their hearts, and
they very tenderly cared for the little
stranger that night, yesterday reporting
the And to an officer of the police force.
Captain James called on them yester
day morning. He found the infant receiv
ing the best of attention from Mrs. Sihlea.
Both she and her husband appeared ap
prehensive that ho had called to take
the child from them, as they had already
made up their minds to adopt the Infant
as their own. Captain James calmed their
fears on that score, and gave them infor
mation as to the regular proceedings for
the legal adoption of the child, and left

An. Cast Side Citizen on the Charter.
Mr. George Armstrong, whom nearly
everybody in East Portland knows, and
who has done business on the East Side
in the central district for several years,
has very decided opinions on the charter
question, and Is of the opinion such a char
ter should be passed as will reduce the
expenditures of the city government. "We
have arrived at a period when reduction
of taxation has become an absolute ne
cessity," remarked Mr. Armstrong yes
terday morning. "If the Simon charter
will accomplish this, and It appears to
have been framed for that purpose, I am
in favor of Its passage. The day of exor
bitant salaries of public officers has gone
in this community, and we must retrench,
and retrench at once, now, and not some
time in the future. It is all bosh to claim
the present officers went into office under
a contract with the people for certain
salaries. Private corporations and private
business concerns have been compelled to
make reductions, and there is no reason
why high salaries should not come down
at once. The Oregonian has frequently
called attention to this matter In no un
certain way. I don't care If the charter
is called the Simon charter, or by any
other name; that cuts no figure What
we want is reduction of taxation, and we
want that charter that will compel thi3
reduction. -Of course, those in office ob
ject to having their salaries reduced: but
it must not be forgotten that most of the
men in office have some other business of
their own, whlcn they are able to carry
on in connection with their official duties.
The rest of us have not the same advant
age. However, I believe those citizens
who transact the public business should
be fully compensated, but In proportion to
the times, and no exorbitant salaries
should be allowed for the reason the tax
able property will not stand it. It Is the
duty of the legislature to proceed fear
lessly in this matter and not be thwarted
in doing what will bring about reduction
of taxation by a paid lobby, said to be at
Salem besieging the members to defeat
a charter which promises the reform we
most need and most require."

THE MERCANTILE GIANT
Our representative recently visited the
wholesale house of Marshall Field & Co.,
in Chicago, and was much impressed
with the immensity of the business.
One is prepared to believe that the sales
of this house during ISM have reached
over $33,000,000 after a visit to the several
departments. It is a surprise to many
old Eastern houses to learn that this con
cern sends forth every week an average
of nearly $700,000 worth of merchandise.
This requires an army of nearly 2000 men
in the main wholesale building, which has
3S departments on eight floors making a
total of nearly 12 acres of floor space, and,
Chicago-like, our Western friends claim
that it exceeds in size and value of stock
any other mercantile building in the
world. In addition to the main building
in which the open stocks arc kept, there
are two buildings of nearly equal dimen
sions used for warehouses one five-story
and basement building, 150x200, that was
formerly used as a part of the old whole
sale department, and another s!x-stpry
and basement building, 00x150 feet. Mar
shall Field & Co. have their own cloak
factor in a part of the old wholesale
bluldlng, and also a shirt factory, located
at Fond du Lac, Wis. They also control
the entire output of some leading West
ern manufacturers. There is a spirit of
enthusiasm among all hands, from the
executive heads right down through the
buyers and general salesmen, with their
assistants, to the ushers and messengers;
and even the rushing crowd of customers
seems to partake of it. The field chiefly
covered by this vast business Is the West
to the Pacific coast, and the South to the
Gulf. Truly our Eastern wholesale
houses have a noble competitor In this
mercantile giant of the West. New York

JOINED HISDEAD WIFE
H. D. 3IOXTG03IERY, AX OLD RESI
DENT, COMMITS SUICIDE.
Despondency Induced the Act Mrs.
Hurrlc, of Lents, Takes Car
bolic Acid and Dies.
Despondency over the death of his wife,
which occurred about 15 months ago,
caused Henry D. Montgomery, an old res
ident of Portland, to take his life yester
day. His probable intention at first was
not only to destroy himself but, also,
poison his two young children, a son and
daughter; but, if such was his purpose at
one time, he changed his mind and took
a large dose of morphine yesterday after
noon, with suicidal intent.
Montgomery was about &i years of age
and well known In Portland, where he
had lived for a quarter of a century or
more Some years ago his home was on
Water street, near Clay, and he was en
gaged as a hack-driver and teamster. He
had acquired some little property at one
time, located near Fulton, but it is now
mortgaged or lost, and de died without
means. Some months ago he started a
small cigar and tobacco stand, on the
Macadam road, near Fulton, and, while
thus engaged, he was arrested for selling
liquor without a license. His method was
to sell a cheap cigar for 10 cents, and then
furnish his customer with a drink of
liquor gratis. He was arrested for this
offense, but the charge was finally dis
missed in the municipal court. He was
again arrested on a similar charge, last
August, and he was finally fined 5100 on
the two charges. He appealed the cases
to the circuit court. The appeal not be
ing perfected, a bench warrant for his
arrest was issued and was in the hands
of the chief of police when Montgomery
answered a summons higher than earthly
The death of his -wife and his arrest
for violating the liquor license had a de
pressing effect upon the mind of Mont
gomery. His two children, Edith and
Fritz. 13 s.r.d 11 years of age, had been
placed in the custody of the Boys' and
Girls' Aid Society, but finding, as he
thought, a good home for them, with a
family living in Lewis county, Washing
ton, he removed them to that place. After
being there a short time, the children com
plained of ill-treatment, and their father
had them return to the care of the so
ciety, where they still remain. After los
ing his place on the Macadam road, he
became more despondent, and to Patrick
Murray, one of his friends, he said he in
tended not only to kill himself but his
children. He went out to Middleton,
Washington county, some weeks ago, to
work on a farm, and on last Saturday he
returned to Portland, went to call on his
friend Murray, and on Sunday visited his
children and, under the influence of their
presence, was more than usually cheer
ful. After leaving his children. Montgomery
went to the West lodging-house, on Grand
avenue, secured a room and yesterday
made good his threat to kill himself. In
conversing with the proprietor of the
lodging-house, Montgomery spoke affec
tionately of his children and appeared in
depressed spirits. He must have taken
the deadly drug sometime yesterday morn
ing, and, when the door of his room
was opened, he was discovered lying
across the bed, to all appearances dead.
On the table was a bottle containing a
small portion of morphine, and he prob
ably swallowed a large dose of the drug.
Doctors Parker and Fiynn were speedily
summoned, and efforts made to resuscitate
the dying man. They proved futile. An
ambulance call was sent in to the cen
tral police station, and Montgomery, In
charge of Officer Johnson, was taken to
the Good Samaritan hospital, where he
died about 20 minutes after his arrival.
In tho pockets of deceased were found
several letters addressed to him, a purse
containing $4 50, and a nuniber of yellow
colored cards, evidently used in making
application for membership to some secret
order. On the back of one of these cards
was written the following letter to his
"My Dear Children: I hope you will for
give me for what I have done, but the
burdens of life are too heavy for me to

Mrs. Orewiler, the keeper of a lodging-house
on First street, knew Mont
gomery In his lifetime, and was greatly
surprised to learn of his death. After
visiting the central police station to have

Yesterday afternoon Coroner Cornelius
held an inquest on the body of William
Dickson, an ex-soldier of the Civil war,
found dead in a bed at the Quimby house
last Saturday night. A verdict was re
turned that the cause of death was fatty
degeneration of the heart. Dickson came
to Portland from San Francisco last Sun
day, seeking work as a stonecutter. On
the night of February 14 he made a visit
to the North End, while drunk, and, while
in one of the cribs of that locality, he was
robbed of $40 and his watch. Thinking
that possibly the man might have been a
victim of foul play, Coroner Cornelius
made an autopsy to learn the cause of
death. The liver was found to be greatly
congested, and there were evident signs
of his having been a hard drinker during
lifetime, and all indications pointed to the
cause of death as found by the coroner's
jury. Dickson, it was ascertained by a
letter found in his pocket, had been an

DR. RAM SPEAKS AGAIN.
The Hindoo "Lecturer TnlUs of East
Dr. Jinda Ram, of Punjab, India, de
livered last nlsht' a very interesting lec
ture in the chapel of the Unitarian church.
His subject was, "The Arya Samaj; or,
the Vegic Church of the Aryans." The
doctor was introduced in a few well
chosen remarks by Dr Frances A. Cady,
who touched upon the work carried on by
Dr. Ram in behalf of the women of India.
The doctor began his lecture with a short
prayer in the Sanskrit language, and then
proceeded to the subject of his discourse.
"Arya Samaj," he said, "means the re
ligion of the nobles. The religion had no
special name after any one person or
Ism, as is the case with almost every re
ligion: Its teachings and precepts can
be found in the Vedas. -Veda means
knowledge. During a great civil war in
India, which is known under the name
Mahabrata,' the scientists and teachers
were killed, and this gave rise to a priest
hood, who started their own religion after
their name called Brahmanism. or the
religion of the Brahmins. It is they who
are responsible for having made the caste
system hereditary. It is true that the
caste system is referred to in the Vedas,
but in the Dedic religion every one, even
If born in the lowest or fourth cast, could

was based upon qualification. These same

priests, who stopped the advance of qual
ified persons from the lower to the higher
castes, also succeeded in closing up our
schools, and thus forced upon the people
a reign of darkness and ignorance. They,
too, introduced the shameless rite of sac
rifices, and began to build temples and
shrines. It was then but a short way to
Idols, which they soon introduced. To
hold their position, they soon discovered
the advantage of influencing the women.
It was at that stage when Buddha, the
enlightened, came as the great reformer,
but the Brahmins having been in posses
sion of power, expelled his followers out
of the country.
"Through numerous circumstances,
woman lest her position. You know, In
your Bible you are told of the fall of
man through the Instrumentality of
woman. With us in the East the reverse
is the case woman fell on account of
man. In the restoration of woman to
her true position we have to meet, beside
the ignorance of our own people, also the
many foreign elements, who seem to
work hand in hand with the priesthood.
But wherever there are difficulties there
arc also resources."
He then proceeded to explain the Vedic
conception of God, truth and other met
aphysical matters, which he did with the
usual ability of Hindoo philosophizing,
which the audience received with much
applause as he was making his points.
He was clear in his statements, cutting
in his comparisons, and held the atten
tion of his audience from the beginning
to the close.
Dr. Cady closed the meeting by announc
ing that a reception will be given to the
distinguished visitor at Dr. Thompson's
house, 428 Sixth street, on Wednesday
after at 2 o'clock. Dr. Ram can
