His Assailant Sluice Tliclr Escape in
tae Woods at North. Albina
The wrong man was held up again last '
evening, and t-jvo highway robbers have i
disappeared In the brush of Multnomah j
addition, supposed to be- badly wounded. .
As John Hughes, an .oiler In the em
ploy of the Northern Pacific Terminal
Company, was going toward his home, 801
Montana avenue, about 8 o'clock, he saw
three men approaching, alopg the south
end of Willamette boulevard. When they
came within a few yards of him, two
presented revolvers and ordered him to
throw up his hands. Hughes, who is only
about five feet in height, did not comply,
but, stooping suddenly, fired at the near
est Jobber as a bullet just passed over
his own bead. The .man, who was only
two feet away, staggered, but turned and
ran off. The second also ran, but Hughes
Is positive he struck him in the back, as
his aim was good. He then informed the
third man that a move on his part would
causea bullet through his body, and
he clung to this man until a patrolman
was met, when the prisoner was given
over to the police. -
This third man, on arriving at the sta
tion, proved to be J. B. Farr, a driver in
the employ of Banfield &. Rand, discharg
ers of ballast. Farr, who boards at the
corner of Stanfleld and Delay streets, pro
tests his innocence of any connection with
the robbers. He says he was walking
along behind them until they met Hughes,
when, to his surprise, the couple started
in to hold the little man up. Nothing
wrong Is known of Farr, but the police
think It queer that he should stand by
and watch a hold-up In progress without
either taking a hand or running away.
He was not armed when taken, and noth
ing on his person Indicated complicity in
A search of the premises last night re
vealed no trace of the robbers, but the
police have good hopes of their final cap
ture. That the thugs are residents of the
vicinity Is evident, as yesterday was the
usual weekly payday of the Terminal
company, and the robbers must have
known that Hughes had money with him.
The revolver used by Hughes was a
Smith & Wesson, 38 caliber, and carried a
bullet big enough to Mil a man at 50
yards. He is therefore justified in feel
ing confident of having hit one. If not
both. The second roan, he said, groaned
as he-xan, as though suddenly stricken.
Farr is locked up in, the city jail, await
ing further developments.
GIRLS TO BE ADMITTED.
Mr. J. "W. Coolc's Further Proviso for
, the In due trial School.
PORTLAND, Jan. 15. (To tho Editor.)
In reading, in your paper of this morn
ing, an article headed "Woman and Her
Work,-" I am pleased to know that there
is a misunderstanding regarding the dona
tion of land made by the subscriber for
an Industrial and technical school. The
reason I am pleased with this misunder
standing is this: It has been the cause
of the women's showing their Interest In
the work, and our experience In Portland
ihas been that when -women take hold of
beneficent work tney always succeed and
accomplish the object for which It is in
tended; vide the "'Home," the "Woman's
Union," the ""Baby Home," and indirectly
tho "Boys' and Girls' Aid Society," to
gether with all the churches for how
Jong would the churches last without the.
influence of woman?
I do not deny that something was said
to the gentleman who wrote the article
In the paper of the 7th that It be left to
the committee as to the advisability of
allowing girls -o enter this school. I now
desire to say to the women of Oregon
that a further proviso will be made that
girls shall be admitted on just as advan
tageous terms and conditions as bojs.
I close by saying that I hope the women
will continue their interest in this work,
because I think if they do It will come
to ultimate success. J. W. COOK.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS.
Bids for Improving Xorth Ttventy
First Street Opened Otlier Matters.
The board of public works held a meet
intr T.p.Rterdav and opened b'ds for the
improvement of Twenty-flrst street, from
Washington to Sherlock avenue. Four
Djds were submitted, the lowest of which
amounts to about $9200, but as it will
take some little time to summarize them
and find out which Is the most advan
tageous, they were all laid over for con
elderat'on. The board, which rejected all bids for
doing the city printing for the current
year, on the ground that there had been
collusion among the printers to advance
prices beyond what was reasonable, and
who requisitioned the "Schwab Printing
Company, who had the contract last
ear, for all the blanks, etc, possible for
this year, have entered Into an agreement
with the Schwab company to furnish the
additional work needed during the year at
the usual commercial rates. In this way
tho board secures work for which the com
bine wanted over $1100 lor less than $450,
and thereby effected a saving to the city
of between $600 and $700.
The contract price agreed upon for the
mayor's message and principal reports Is
$110 per page. The lowest bid submitted
by the printers recently was $1 60 a page.
Briefs under the contract will be printed
for SO cents a page, as compared with $1 05,
tho lowest bid of the printers.
A communication was received from the
Typographical Union and the federated
trades, thanking the board for the recog
nition extended to them.
Petitions were received asking for arc
lights in Mllwaukle road, at the Baldwin
switch, and on Tillamook street.
It is understood that there is a possibil
ity of an arc light being removed from
Eugene street to a part of Tillamook
street, where there is no light, and already
the board has been notified that a re
monstrance will be filed against any such
removal. The idea of dividing with
neighbors has not yet found a lodgment
with citizens on Eugene street.
MAY BUY SLIDING LANDS.
Water Committee Xesrotintlns With
Grover and. the King: Association.
Negotiations have been In progress for a
fortnight or more between a subcommit
tee of the water committee and the King
Heal Estate Association, L. F. Grover,
Rachel Hawthorne and others, looking to
a purchase of the sliding lands west of
the City Park by the city. The matter
was taken up shortly after the termina
tion of the King Association's suit against
the city for damages.
It is thought by several members of the
committee that the only way to solve
the physical difficulties In the matter Is
for the ctly to own the sliding land, es
tablish a perfect system of drainage, per
manently stop the slides, which were
caused by a superabundance of water un

BLANCHE BATES' ANKLES
KISSES AKP HOSE THE BASIS OF A
Portland Girl Sits on Stae and
Snows Many Pairs of Gaudy
Blanche Bates Is again a J7ew York sen
sation. She has set the tongues of all
Gotham wagging by her portrayal of the
part of Cora, a hosiery model In David
Belasco's new play, "Naughty Anthony,"
which was produced Monday of last
week. All the big New Tork dallies had
long notices of the comedy, and every
one praised Blanche's acting.
The New York Sun says that this is
the first play on record to succeed in its
stocking feet, but Its success is only
that of Blanche Bates'. The idea soon
got abroad that the farce had been built
around a few pairs of long stockings and
a kiss. The stockings are Blanche's and
also the kiss. The World says there is
one bright spot in "Naughty Anthony,"
It -sras Blanche Bate3 as the hosiery model.
Her, gowns were beautiful and becoming; her
smile was radiant, her spirits high and her
hoss-they were tho whole now.
There were plain hose and plaid hose; striped
hose and figured hose silken hosa and lisle.
At least, so the audience was led to suppose,
but they waited all evening to justify their
The two long, unlnappy first acts were saved
at the end by the hosiery model.
Blanche Bates made the hit of the evening
trying on hose. It was a delicate piece of
business for a whole show to hinge upon, and
not every one could have done It. It could bo
easily have been done wrong.
There are so many was of slipping off hose,
but there Is only one real way. It is the
Blanche Bates method. Indeed, the scene was
so carefully treated that an audience, which
had waited through two long acts containing
nothing but disappointed hope, was satisfied.
Mlts Bates could never have attained, such
grace by means of ordinary practice. It must
be a natural sort of genius. She was destined
to be a hosiery model.
Perhaps it was because she did It In such a
business-like way that it did not seem the least
bit naughty, for It certainly was the model's
It la odd no one eer thought of having a
hosiery model before. There have been other
playo that needed something to save them, but
perhaps the managers couldn't get Mies Bates
to do it all so gracefully.
"Jfo good," said everybody after act one.
"Absolutely stupid," they reiterated at tho
close of act two.
And still they waited. A sense of something
coming filled tho air.
And It came.
The hosiery scene was all that waa looked for..
This spicy scene lasts about five min
utes, and keeps the audience on the qui
vive. "Miss Bates, who Portland people
know is a beautiful and talented actress,
sits down on the floor facing the aud
ience, pulls up her skirts to the knee and
displays ner slik stockings Three Sal
vation Armv lassies sit on a settee and
Tvatch her with open eyes as she pro
ceeds with her display.
The silk stockings are said to be richly
embroidered and are very striking. She
talks about their especial charm, while
the band plays a soft accompaniment.
Then she peels them off deftly and reveals
another pair underneath of different de
sign, but equally elaborate. Then comes
another and another, until finally the Sal
vation Army girls are so captivated that
they hold out their feet, pull up their
dresses and want to try on silk stockings,
too, when a clergyman enters and puts
them to flight. This scene constitutes the
main feature of the play.
David Belasco, the playwright, says that
Blanche Sates stock'ngs are entirely in
nocent; that she doesn't put them on; she
merely takes them off. This wickedness
depends upon the point of view. Yet to
the unprejudiced mind Miss Bates comes
at as much naughtiness in taking them off
as in pulling them on. "When she under
takes to display her hosiery to those
Salvation Army girls she wears half a
dozen pair of stockings, and, the matter
being between women, it is harmless
-enough for her to pull off each stocking
to praise Its merits. However, this strict
ly feminine business happens to be under
taken in front of the footlights and MIes
Bates, being one of the cleverest players
on the stage, has a good understanding.
Hers is a shapely ankle, too. Therefore,
there seems to be more harm in the busi
ness than its author perceived, and no
more diiterence can oe iouna necween
pulling off and pulling on than betwixt
tweedledum and tweedlcdee.
It is not in hosiery alone that danger
Ilea. There is an undercurrent of wick
edness throughout "Naughty Anthony."
David Belasco, long confined in emotional
plays, has run riot. Every one of the
characters in his new piece Is more or
less immoral some with aspirations, some
with memories, some with .present ex
periences. The dialogue is as saucy as
If it came unbleached from Earls. , ,,V
Mr. Belasco- has not bothered his brains
over the ptory. The argument of this
new piece is the most slender foundation
on which the author ever has built a play.

approval of kissing, which he considers
not only perilous, but unnecessary. Yet
he Is the first one of all his cult to trans
gress the law formulated by himself, for,
under the temptations of a hosiery modej,
he presently succumbs to the charms of
woman's lips. The play hangs on a' kiss,
but great matters, from Olga Nethersole's
"Carmen" to Cleopatra's beguilement of
Caesar, have had no finer motive, and
kissing is the least part of this story.

fined actors and actresses might have done
with the play my hair threatens to stand on
end. One wink, one leer, one coarse suggestion
would have turned comedy, not Into farce, oh,
dear, no' but Into degrading pantomime.
Tor, what did we see during the evening's
amusement? A charming, well-dressed, allur
ing woman; a woman with a spaTkle in her eye
and a throb In her voice; a woman not exactly
of the world, but of the people, making desper
ate love to an unctuous, human, temptable
professor of moral philosophy.
It was a scene that any lover of good acting
delighted to see, because Blanche Bates clever
throughout, Charming from start to finish was
here at her very best, and because It was the
best scene In the play. They will talk this
morning all over New York of the "stocking
scene.' They will describe Blanche Bates sitting
on the floor and peeling- oft fascinating hose in
the presence of three Salvation lasses; they will
be wondering how any actress dared do such a
thing, and do It with uch consummate grace,
tact and art.
THRIVING SUBURBAN SCHOOLS
East Side and Suburban School Dis
tricts Are Prosperous.
At the close of the year Is was found
that the suburban school districts were
more prosperous than they had been for
a number of years. The districts of
Mount Tabor are conspicuous examples
of growth and Improvement the "past
year. In the large district, No. 5, where
there are two buildings, the clerk reports
an increase in the school population of
from 20 to 25 per cent. He states that
the enumeration is 670 children of school
age, while the attendance at the school
has reached about 400. But this is not
the only pleasing feature. The financial
condition is better than for years, and
but for the bonded indebtedness of the
district a special tax levy would not be
required at all. Clerk Fields estimates
that the, district Js $5000 ahead of what
it was last year. There is no floating
Indebtedness at this time. This Is hot
what was expected at the school meeting
held a year ago, when it was freely pre
dicted that the district would run be
hind $1000, and would have to borrow
money to pay current expenses, but this
has not been required. The clearing up
of past delinquencies has contributed
largely toward bettering the financial
conditions of the district. The value of
taxable property of the district has just
been obtained, and is $389,480. On this
valuation the levy will be made, but it
will not be a large one. There was a
time when the'jtaxable property of the,
district was fixed at nearly $1,000,000, but
that was under boom conditions.
In the Montavilla district the enumera
tion of children of the school age has
not yet been completed, but as far as
gone the increase is 25 per cent over last
year. The annual special meeting will
be held on the evening of January 25.
The finances of the district No. 18 are
In excellent condition. There is not a
dollar of floating indebtedness, and all
current expenses are promptly paid. The
improved conditions in these two large
districts for the past year aire most re
markable. When the census of the Mon
tavilla district shall have been completed
there is no doubt but it will be shown
that there are over 1000 children of school
age in Nos. 5 and 18, and that the total
population cannot be far from 4000. Two
years ago the financial condition of both
districts was regarded about as bad as it
could well be, but from these reports it
may be seen that all this has been
changed. The districts will be able to
carry their bonded indebtedness with low
tax leyles this' year.

Drove Over Rotten Roadway.
A farmer drove In from the country
east of the city with a heavy load of
produce, and, not being familiar with the
condition of East Morrison street, started
on that thoroughfare for the bridge. He
did not notice the danger signal until it
was too late to retreat, and had to pro
ceed. Quite a crowd watched him wind
ing his way over the roadway, expecting
that his outfit would break through tho
rotten planks at any time, but he drove
very cautiously, avoiding tho specially
dangerous places, and managed to reach
the approach to Morrison bridge without
accident. As he had a heavy load on his
wagon, he took a good many chances in
driving over the irotten roadway.
