Populism Mset Todat. Frank Will
iams, of Ashland, chairman of the popu
liet state central committee, is at the
Perkins, arranging for a committee meet
ing to be held there at M o'clock this
morning. When seen yesterday afternoon,
Mr. Williams did not desire to forecast
&n plan of campaign, hut he thought Xfce
arious elements opposed to the republican
party would finally center on one man,
Bryan, without the formality of fusion.
He predicts a lively presideattal campaign,
in which the Boer war will ngure mate
rial!, ac he said: "The Irish and Lheir
descendants in this country are, to a man,
opposed to England on the South African
question. The German races In the United
States also favor the Boers, and are likely
to cast their votes with that party which
fa org an outspoken pro-Boer policy on the
part of the American government." In re
gard to the state campaign, he thought
fusion would be adopted in some counties,
though he had heard nothing definite in
regard to the matter from any of the
Fau. Umdbr Subukbax Car. A Httfe
girl named Waason, years old, fell under
the train on the St. John's motor line, at
"University Park, last evening, at 7 'deck,
and was badly injured. One of her legs
was broken and badly crushed. None of
the employes or passengers on the train
saw the accident, but It is believed the girl
together with other children was jumping
on and off the platform of the car while
it was In motion, and that she fell under
the wheels. The conductor and engineer
were unaware of the accident until their
return trip. Children in this vicinity have
a habit of jumping on and off the train at
this point. The injured ohild was removed
laa-t night to the Good Samaritan hospital,
where the necessary surgical treatment
was rendered. The family are newcomers

sang, "Received a Telegram," which was
of such popularity that he was called back
for a third number. The last created great
amusement, but the applause could not

Narrow Escape of an East Side Child
Who Got Hold of a Bottle.
At an early hour yesterday morning
Joseph, the 6-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Kasper, who live at 575 East
Powell street, near East Fourteenth, took
carbolic acid from a bottle that had
been left on a shelf above the sink, and
for several hours was unconscious, and
Ills life was despaired of. Fortunately
he got a very small quantity of the
deadly drug, or the dose would have
proved -fatal very quickly. He took all
there was in the "bottle. Immediately fol
lowing his taking the poison he collapsed
from the shock and from fright. H s
mother, who was In the room at the time,
sent hurriedly for Dr. Charles Hill, who
lives on East Eleventh, and but a few
blocks away. He worked over the boy
for two hours, when his efforts were re
warded by the patient's reviving In a very
feeble condition. The physician found that
a very email amount of the drug, if any
at all, bad gone Into the stomach, but
the boy's mouth and throat were severely
burned. It was not till about 11 o'clock
that it was felt that he was out of danger.
In the afternoon the boy was able to be
about the house, though still weak. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Kasper are very greatly re
lieved that the accident was no worse.
An interesting time is expected. All will
be made welcome.

nearly a half century. He was born in
Berks county, Pennsylvania, April 9,
1828. His father was a native of Boston,
but the family is of old English siock,
having come from the mother country
in 1634. The family settled In Dorchester,
Mass., and became prominent In tho af
fairs of that country. Some of them
won renown In the Revolutionary war.
Mr. Breck was educated in ills native
state until he was 16 years old, when he
moved to Wisconsin. In that state he
took a course in a school presided over
by Rev. Lloyd Breck, LL. D., of the
Episcopal church. He remained in Wis
consin until 1851, when he came to Ore
gon. While In Wisconsin he was engaged
in various pursuits, and farmed part of
On his arrival in Portland he ct once
engaged in the mercantile business, in
both tho wholesale and retail lines. His
advent in Portland was at the same time
as that of H. W. Corbett, and they came
part of the way together. He continued
In this business until i860, when he told
out and took a position as purser on the
steamship Isortherner. On the second
voyage of this vessel she struck a rock
15 miles from Humboldt landing, and toro
off some of her planking. Pumping was
of no avail, and the vessel was soon
found to be doomed. This was just at
twilight, and the water was smooth, with
no wind. The women wore sent ashcre,
but before the boats could return a ter
rific gale sprung up that no boat could
live In. After many efforts, a line was
got ashore from the wreck by the chief
engineer swimming with it and the crew
and passengers were ordered to swim
ashore, holding to the line. It was mid
night when Mr. Breck received orders
to go. When he reached the shore he
found that he and one Chinaman wero
the only ones to reach land. Thirty-tour
of the crew and passengers were drowned.
This narrow escape caused Mr. Ereck
to abandon a seafaring occupation.
Mr. Aspinwall, then president of the
steamship line, was a brother-in-law, and
he appointed Mr. Breck agent I'or the
company at Portland. He was after
wards engaged in a general merchandise
business, which he continued until 1S7S.
Then he went to California, and was
four years at Petaluma, In that state. lie
then returned to Portland and sa a
salesman for Meier & Frank for four
years. Since that time he had been en
gaged in the money brokerage business.
Mr! Breck was married In 1834 to Miss
Annie Ashmead, of Lancaster county,
Pennsylvania, who, with two children,
Annie and George, Is still living.
Mr. Breck was a republican in politics
ever since the organization of that party.
In 1S61 he was elected mayor of Portland,
and he was a member of council m'ary
times. He also served as county clerk
and city and county assessor. All tnere
places he filled with credit to himself
and honor to the community.
In 1S55 Mr. Breck purchased tho lot
opposite tho postomce, where he built a
house and lived for many years. In
1890 he sold the place for $S0,000 and then
bought the lot on Corbett street, where
he was residing when he died.

The Brooklyn school gave an entertain
ment last night at Foss hall, corner of
Grand and Hawthorne avenues, for the
benefit of the library fund. An extensive
and Interesting programme had been ar
ranged. It was divided into two parts,
tho first consisting of numbers by the
children of the various grades, while the
second part was devoted to selections by
older people. The arrangement was very
effective, as It furnished entertainment
for both old and young.
Part 1 consisted of songs and drills. The
cakewalk by a little girl and boy of the
second grade was well done, and aroused
considerable applause. This was followed
by several drills and recitations, which
wero rendered in a highly pleasing and
Interesting style. All the children taking
part were well drilled, and went through J
their parts with wonderful self-possession.
At the close of a short Intermission
the second part began with a Tiumorous
recitation by Miss Agnes Kelly, which
was given in her usual pleasing style.
Then came recitations by Phoebe Brown
and Frank Tillman, followed by fine club
swinging by David' Campbell. K. H. Al
exander then gave a pleasing tenor solo
"If I Were a Rose" and tho evening's
entertainment was closed with selections
