A majority of the residents of East Tenth street have signed a petition for the im provement of that street from Belmont to East Gllsan, a distance of 14 blocks. The signers of the petition represent 3559 feet out of a total of 5600 feet, so there is nothing to hinder the improvement from being carried out. Old residents on the street have long been trying to bring about this improvement, and are very happy over having at last succeeded. The street is to be graded full width, improved with gravel and sidewalks, and crdss walks laid, except at the Intersections of Belmont and East Stark, where sections of elevated roadway will be necessary. Jcmpbd on Trains. Frank Dunn and Clyde Connor, two East Side lads, who had persisted in jumping aboard moving trains, were yesterday convicted of tres pass in the municipal court, and sen tenced to one day each in the county jail. Southern Pacific trainmen have been an noyed considerably in the vicinity of llil waukle avenue, by boys jumping on and off the cars, and this sentence is merely a forereunner of longer terms unless the practice is abandoned. These two boys had been in the city Jail since their ar rest last week. Wild Fixjwbrs Reported. A citizen who was out driving on the Columbia slough road Sunday, reports having seen numerous wild flowers In bloom. He says they were principally lilies and "birds bills." These are the first wild flow ers heard of In this vicinity, and it would be interesting to know what kind of lilies they were and what "birds bills" are.

NEW SAILBOATS. Speedy Crnft Under Construction In East Side Yards. This season will witness several new and elegant sailboats on the river that prom ise to prove speedy. Several members of the Oregon Yachting Club, which has Its boathouse at the foot of East Clay street, are building yachts themselves, and sev eral of last year's yachts are being re modeled, and in some instances rebuilt almost entirely. John Duthie has under construction a fine 30-foot yacht on the grounds formerly occupied by Hale & Kern. The keel ,has been bent and the' frame Is "being put together. It is for an unknown owner. It -a ill be one of the largest yachts under construction eo far. Taylor Bros, have been engaged In build ing a yacht in a building on East Wash ington, between East Second and East Third streets. They have been at work on the'r boat since last November, ac cording to a design furnished by Mr. Dodge, a competent man in that line. Those who have been privileged to see the craft as far as completed eay that It la a beauty. They work at odd times, but are now making good progress. Another yacht Is under construction In the same room, but for whom it Is not known. The Lark is to be rebuilt th's season also, and is expected to be more speedy than ever. The Lark cut quite a figure last season, and the owner hopes to do better this year. There Is consid erable enthusiasm among the yachtsmen of the Oregon Yachting Club, and there promises to be a large fleet of fine boats on the Willamette. The club also con templates the construction of a larger boathouse, as the present one was found too small last year. DEMAND FOR HOUSES. Residence Property Engrcrly Sought by Buyers. There has been a marked Increase in the demand for residence property of late, especially for houses of a desirable class in a good location. The reason for this Is that good houses can often be obtained for oonslderably less than It costs to bulkl them, owing to the increase In the costs of material, and of all kinds of la bor. The Joseph H. Valentine property at Twenty-first and Jefferson streets Is reported to have been sold to W. C. Qutnn, and L. B. Cox has sold his house on Lovejoy street to Mrs. Delia F. Durk helmer. Several mining men are making Inquiries for property. There are few empty houses In the city, and a person who desires a house rode all the distance to Mount Tabor, without seeing a single sign "To let." Although It is very early In the season to begin building operations, permits for houses and cottages arc being taken out nearly every day. It Is probable that many more houses will be built this season than were the last. Every one appears to be convinced that property will never again be so cheap in Portland as It is now. and all who pos sibly can are building or securing homes. Money Is plentiful and safe Investments are scarce, and as rents are constantly advancing, many are contemplating build ing houses, who have heretofore invested their money in other ways. COMING ATTRACTIONS. Soldiers' Monument Fund Benefit. A most worthy object for citizens to respond to is the fund for the monument to Oregon' b fallen heroes. The Oregon National Guard, through its subdivisions located In this city, has been awaiting the opportunity to contribute in a substantial manner to the fund already well ad vanced, and has recognized the merit of the Charity Martin grand opera recital and Ellis Brooks musical spectacle as an entertainment most appropriate to the cause, to assist in the accumulation of funds. The Third regiment band. O. N. G , will play the musical score. Wednes day night will witness a delighted audi ence at the Metropolitan theater. A number of box and loge parties have al ready engaged seats. General Summers and officers of the Second Oregon will be present the opening night, ajso Governor Geer and staff. General Beebe and staff and other military officials, who are all so deeply interested in the success of the monument fund. Cholce Rests With Theater-Goers. In order that the taste- of his patrons may be gratified. Manager Helllg has de cided to let the choice of the play for the return engagement of the James-Kidder Hanford company Saturday evening rest with them. He wl!l be pleased to have patrons of the theater inform him by pos tal card or by leaving word at the box otSce of their preference of the plays In the repertoire of the company, and he will make the selection for the evening performance according to the choice of the majority. "The Rivals" will be given at the matinee. During this engagement the free list will be entirely suspended. 8 Large Striugs of Trout. Bandon Recorder.

SEND MISSIVES OF LOVE MAIDENS' HEARTS FLUTTER POST3IEIMN DESPAIR, AXD Fourteenth of February Finds Youth. Paying: Tribute to Cupid Legend of Good Italian Saint. Apollo has peeped through the shutter And wakened the witty and fair; The boarding-school belles In a flutter The two-penny post in despair. The breath of the morning is flinging A magic on blossoms and spray. And cookneys and sparrows are singing In chorus on Valentine's day. Tomorrow is St. Valentine's day. All Portland will observe it. It is useless for people to say that they will take no no tice of it: for they will. The custom of sending valentines still exists, though not perhaps to the extent that prevailed in former years. Each year brings out new and Ingenious designs. The comic valen tine, like the poor, we have always with us. There has been of late a decided Im provement in this lino of valentines, and most of them that are displayed in the shop windows are less offensive and nasty and more humorous than heretofore. A look through the department and sta tionery stores this year will bring to light many pretty and amusing designs. One of these, evidently Intended to be sent by a young woman to a young man, is made out in the form of an election ballot. The ticket runs this way: For governor, YOu; for lieutenant-governor, Me; for secretary of state. You: for treasurer. Only Me. This very accurately expresses the as pirations of the average young woman, and may be aeslgnated as heart politics. Another very pretty valentine Is a sum mons tD the high court of Cupid. This is Intended for one who is known to de spise the tender feelings so much In vogue on St. Valentine's day. Then there Is Cupid's dart and the "Marble Heart." These Varieties of valentines will not be the only ones sent and received tomorrow. Young women will send pretty things that they have manufactured themselves, and which cannot fall to be appreciated to the fullest extent by the young men who re ceive them. The young men In turn will send the Inevitable candy, flowers, hooks and gloves, that young women will not object to receiving. "In the spring the young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love," and lest there should be any danger of his forgetting the approach of the vernal pe riod of courtship, St. Valentine's day comes very opportunely. Tradition says that St. Valentine was an Italian priest, with a most beautiful dis position, who was famed for his charity to all men. In the end he suffered mar tyrdom. One account says this occurred at Rome In the year 270, while another story places this tragedy at Ternl, in 306. Legend tells how he was brought before the Emperor Claudius II, who asked him why he did not cultivate his friendship by worshiping the emperor's gods. Val entine defended the faith of Christianity so eloquently that Calphurnlus, the high priest, became alarmed lest the emperor should become converted and he should lose his job. He was sent to Asterlus to be judged, and to him he preached the Christ. Asterlus responded by sajlng: "If he be the Light of the world, he will restore the light to my daughter, who has been blind for two years." Valentine laid his hands on the girl, and her sight was restored. Then Asterlus and his house hold were baptized. This so enraged Claudius that he caused everybody con nected with the transaction to be beaten and thrown into prison. A year later, on February 14, Valentine was beheaded. His tory traces the custom of sending missives of love on Valentine's day back to the old Latin festival of Lupeicalla, which occurred In February. On that occasion the names of the women were placed In a box and were drawn out by the men, each being bound to honor and serve the wom an whose name he had drawn In this lot tery of marriage. The church tried to turn the custom to religious ends, but failed. OBJECTS TO QUAY. Philadclphlnn Writes Politics to East Side Pastor. The following letter was received by Rev. Robert McLean, pastor Third Pres byterian church, from J. Bayard Henry, of Philadelphia, Mr. Henry Is a prominent attorney In that city, and a warm per sonal friend of Mr. McLean, and the let ter was written with the hope of gamins Oregon Influence iu keeping Quay out f the senate. Mr. Henry says: "So far as our legislature Is concerned he (Quay) could not be elected in a special session, and I do not see how he can hope to win before the people this fall, when a new legislature will be chosen. If, how ever, governors' appolntmedts are to Lo recognized where a term expires during a session of the legislature, he may nave enough friends to hold up an election, and his creature Governor Stone will then te appolnt him. It is of the utmost Import ance, not only to Pennsj lvania, but to cur country at large, that governors' appoint ments made under such circumstances are not recognized, and, therefore, every ef fort must be put forth to prevent the rec ognition of these appointments. If we are to have two methods of choosing senators one by legislatures and the other by appointment of governors after a dead lockit will mean the grossest fraud and corruption in every state, and for this reason I hope you will be able to accom plish something In the way of letters, which shall prevent your senator voting for him. "The forces allied In favor of Quay are tho most dangerous in our country. They are the corrupt and corrupting powers which always value a man's vote from a money point of view. The speeches will probably begin this week, but I doubt If there w ill be a vote taken before the 19th or 20th." After Forty-Eight Years' Absence. Mrs. B. T. Taylor, a pioneer of 1S50, who resides at 189 East Sixth street, started last night for her old home In Illinois, which she left 48 years ago. Mrs. Taylor came across the plains In an ox team just after her marriage, with a large company. The trip was pleasant and comparatively free from danger, but she grew very weary from riding toward the last part of the trip, and walked the last six weeks of It. She settled at Oregon City, where she lived for 12 years, and then moved to Portland, where she has lived ever since. Mrs. Taylor will visit relatives in her home state of Illinois and is anticipating a pleasant trip. Her people are all pioneers of that section of the country, and she has an aunt who lived for years on the spot where the Black Hawk war was fought. The Cumberland Presbyterian church, of which Mrs. Taylor is a mem ber, gave her a pleasant farewell party. Improved Sunnyslde Stntlon, Station-Master Minor, of the Sunnyslde postal station, has just finished some need ed Improvements to the office. Mr. Minor has found that there was not room enough In which to handle the constantly increas ing mall In that district. He has doubled the room where the mail Is gotten ready for distribution. The Increase of mall has been constant for the past year. At the present rate of Increase, another carrier will soon be necessary to handle the mall. East Side Notes. The young people of Alpha chapter, Ep worth League, Sunnyslde chUTth, were greatly aided In their decorations by H. C. Breeden and the General Electric Com pany. Sidewalks are being repaired all over I the East Side, Wherever there are broken planks, new lumber is being delivered, and the sidewalks are being generally over hauled. There Is a big lot of dilapidated sidewalks requiring repairs. The contractor for the improvement of East Burnside street, between East Twenty-eighth and East Thirtieth streets, ha3 one block of the roadway laid, and the lumber Is on the ground for the remain der, but he cannot finish until the weath er gets settled. The block between East Twenty-eighth and East Twenty-ninth streets, which Is graded, Is a quagmire, and the bottom timbers cannot be laid until the ground dries out. The people are anxious to have this street finished. Dr. Wise is at room 614, Dekum. a - CATTLE WILL GO EAST. Baker County Man Predicts a Lively Movement. S. N. ProflUt, a stbekraiser and dealer of Baker county, who Is In Portland for a few days, says he looks for a large movement of Oregon cattle East this sea son, In spite of th,e reports of the ranges being already depleted. The present win ter has been eo mild over Eastern Ore- Vnn that cattle have done well, without being fed, and t,here are bunches or young , cattle for sale on almost every ranch, Even good beef can be found In the Baker county pastures, where no hay at all has been fed. The present good prices will remain stationary, he thinks, as $20 a head for yearlings, and $26 for 2-year-olds, la about all stockdealers can afford to pay, and with the good prospects ahead, stockrals ers need not sell for much less. He noticed that the stiffness In the Portland market had recently caused ship ments of stall-fed steers from California, and that yesterday 14 carloads of 3-year-old beeves arrived .frdm Reno, Nev. Such shipments as these, he thinks, will regu late the price of beef and prevent a fur ther raise in the retail markets here. "Mutton bothers Baker county butchers more than beef," he said, "as wethers dressing 40 pounds are worth 54 a head, which means 10 cents a pound to start with. The retail price of mutton In Baker and La Grande is 12 cents, which does not leave a very good margin for the butcher, though seeming high to the con sumer." e MORE ABOUT MRS. QUINT. Correapondent Alleges That Family Is Highly Cultured. BARLOW, Or., Feb. 11. (To the Editor.) Regarding the death of Mrs. Moses Quint, related In The Oregonian Sunday, her family desires to say that she had been under the care of medical science for years, and for several months past she had suffered the agonies of death. It was after she and her friends had been .given to understand that there was no hope for her that she appealed to Christian Scientists in her Intense sur fering. In the name of common decency, why should a great daily like The Orego nian resort to slandering the entire Quint family by stating that they are not a very highly cultured family? This, resort to slander will not Injure the Quint fam ily with those who know them, nor bene fit thevmedlcal fraternity, one of whom I heard say nothing would cure Mrs. Quint. I am not a Christian Scientist, but do believe in fair play, and have respect for the dead as well as for the living. Did not General Grant and Presi dent Garfield d'e under the finest medical skill in the land, after many days of earnest prayer and united effort of the whole Christian world? The husband of the deceased Mrs. Quint was given up to die by eeveral medical doctors, hut under the treatment of Mrs. Herron Is I surely recovering. His brother died a short time ago of the same disease, under the best medical skill he could procure. So, after one is doomed to death, any way, what is the difference whose care we are under when the time comes? CORPORAL R. R. BRATTON. o CELEBRATED 'LINCOLN DAY. Bishop Scott Academy Honors Mar tyred President. In lieu of the drill at Bishop Scott academy yesterday. Colonel James Jack son, the regularly detailed officer, and pro fessor of military science and tactics, gave a lecture to the cadets on "Abraham Lin coln." In his remarks he called Lincoln the second father of his country,- and the savior of it in its greatest peril. He drew splendid lessons from the boyhood of the great emancipator, his struggles and work. He referred to him 'as a boy who Improved every opportunity; born amid humble and rough conditions, he stands today the peer of all great men. "The greatest men of America," said the colo nel, "were all men of high moral charac ter." All the cadets listened closely to the lecture, and at the close sang with much spirit "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "America." K 0 f HISTORICAL PAIM1NG To Be Raffled.

These chances are selling at 50 cents each, and as there are only a few left, these should all be taken up by Saturday Feb ruary 17.

TA .It Differs "Widely From the Beautiful Story, "but Is Still, a Scotch Idyll. A company entirely new to Portland, 'sent out by Charles ,Frohman, Introduced "The Little 'Minister" at the Marquam last night to a large and delighted audi ence. Barrle's well-known and popular novel, "The Little Minister," and Barrle's play of the same name are two separate creations. They are not alike. True, each has Babble .nd Gavin Dishart as the central figures, and in the play one gets a few glimpses of the little minister and the wayward girl. But stage limitations aro small, and those who expect to see the book followed will be disappointed. i It is so with all dramatizations of novels. However, the present play is from Mr. Barrle's Den. and we take It as he gives ita charming Idyll, a cpmedy oi bcoicn village life, with the marks of truth and. genius upon It. Its humor Is naive, like .a child's, and unconscious. And It Is with out bitterness or satire. Barrie draws his people understanding and with an ef feminate hand. While he shows the effect of constricted life and contorted Ideas, he never allows the real human quality to become obscured. Miss Grace Heyer played Lady Babble. She is very pretty and very graceful. She fills the ee and the imagination with I her picture of the wild girl falling in love with tho minister and winning him in spite of himself but with no unmaldenly sacrifices. She Is more successful as the forward lass who coquettes with her cler ical admirer than as the awakened woman who discovers the depth of her own pas sion. A triple curtain call at the tmru act was the warm tribute paid her by a critical audience of first-nighters. Adolph Jackson played Gavin Dishart very well. His was a clean-cut perform ance, not lacking in force. Kate Ten, Eyck had a broad comedy role as Nannie Webster, Though exaggerated the least bit, it had the Thrums flavor that at taches to and enriches many of Barrle's quaint personages. Giles Shire made much out of Bob Dow, the reformed drunkard, and Sadie Lauer is decidedly clever as the Juvenile Mlcah Dow. B. R. Graham played Thomas Whamond, chief elder, capitally. Indeed, there was not a flaw In the entire cast. Manager Froh man sustained his well-earned reputation when he sent out this company as his own. Scenery and stage settings are fine. "The Little Minister" will be repeated tonight and Wednesday, but there will be no matinee. WHERE TO DINE.
