"Wm, Do BO Dats. Woo Hop. a very
Innocent appearing Chinaman, who says
be conducts a Chinese employment office,
on the, East Side, was fined 1109 by Judge
Henneeey yesterday for selling lottery
tickets. Woo speaks a little plceon Eng
lish, and In eloquent terras pleaded his In
nocence, even with tears in his eyes. "Me
no want to pay fine: no want to go Jail."
he said, when the Judge asked him what
be was going to do about It. He has JIM
deposited with Captain Hoare, as ball, but
averred that this did cot belong to him,
having been put up by his "cousins." He
was finally given to understand that he
would either have to forfeit the five CI
pieces, or board with Jailer Johnson for
DO days, and he was then led below, where
two of his countrymen are already doing
73 days each for the same offense.

ness of his own to attend to, if he can
set any time to attend to it.
To Help the Sick. There Is nothing
that so appeals to the humano Instincts

ple are always ready to lend their aid
to such a project as this. And there Is

AGAINST THE FRANCHISE
COMMITTEE OX STIIEETSS OPPOSES
Will Report to Conncll In Favor ot
Granting? Prayer ot Remonstrance
At an adjourned meeting of the street
committee held yesterday afternoon It was
decided to recommend that the franchise
for a railroad on Front street be not
granted. When the committee was called
to order by Chairman Martin there were
only two or three property-owners Inter
ested In the franchise present, and none
of them appeared desirous of having any
thing to say on the subject. The members
of the committee were of opinion that
they had heard enough speakers on the
question to furnish them with sufficient in
formation to enable them to vote under
standing, and as there was considerable
work before them, it was on motion de
cided that no further arguments would
be heard on the matter of. the franchise.
Ira F. Powers stated that ho was unable
to be present on Saturday, as It .was pay
day at his establishment, and he would
like to be heard on the subject.
Chairman Martin said that If Mr. Pow
ers was allowed to speak, all who desired
would have to be granted the same privi
lege, and the wholo afternoon might be
taken up with speeches for and against
the franchise. As Mr. Powers had been
given an opportunity to be heard once,
the committee must decline to hear any
more speeches on the question.
The committee then proceeded with
routine business to a finish, and there
seemd to be an Inclination to adjourn
without taking a vote on the franchise
question, but finally a motion was car
ried to take It up and dispose of It.
It was decided, on motion, that a bal
lot should be taken, and despite the ad
vice of Councllmen present, not members
of the committee, "to vote viva voce,
and show their colors," the ballot was
spread. AU the members of the com
mittee, Martin, Cameron, Showers, Luckel
and Hansen, were present. Auditor Gam.
bell acted as tellr, and the result of the
ballot was noes 5.
It was decided to recommend that the
prayer of the remonstrance against the
franchise be granted, and that was the
end of the matter as far as the street
committee Is concerned. It Is generally
understood that the report of the com.
mltteo will bo adopted by the Council.
The following routine business was
transacted by the committee:
A petition was presented nsklng that
Madison street from Park to West Park
street be Improved by macadamizing and
laying a sidewalk on one side of tha
street. As this Improvement te to be mad
between Park blocks and must bo paid for
by the city, some discussion followed as
to the necessity for the work nnd whether
funds for it were available or not.
Shower stated that the street was In
very bad condition, and In the Winter
practically Impassable. On motion of
Luckel it was decided that the Improve
ment be recommended.
A remonstrance against the proposed im
provement of Northrup ptrcet was pre
sented, and as It was signed by a consid
erable majority of the property-owners
interested, the fate of the improvement'
was sealed, and no discussion was neces
sary. Petitions asking for the extension of
Vaughn. Upshur and Twentieth streets
were recommended to bo granted.
A petition from Mrs. Mutch, asking
that a drinking fountain at the corner o!
East Burnslde and Union avenue, bo1 re
moved caused quite a discussion! The
petition states that the fountain leaks
and the water escaping caused a mud
holo on petitioner's property. The matter
was finally referred to the City Engineer
for Investigation, a report to be submit
ted at the next meeting of the Council.
The matter of the extension of Tilla
mook street, east fijom Its present termi
nus to the county road. was. after some
discussion, laid over tl'l next meeting in
order to give tho committee opportunity
to investigate the matter, Councllmen

extension Is situated, offering to accom
A report from the City Engineer recom
mending the opening of an alley through
blo'ck 28. Alblna. was adopted. It was ex
plained that when the property was orig
inally dedicated, the al'ey was provided
for., but when the whole block was owned
by one man he secured the vacation of the
alley. Now some 15 people own parts ot
the block, and they wish to have the
A proposition was presented to the En
ameled Iron Comcany to furnish signs,
bearing the names of tho various streets
In the city. It was agreed that street
sign are badly needed, and that the
sample furnished seemed a very desirable
one, but, after some discussion, the sub
ject was laid over.
A remonstrance against the proposed
Improvement of North Front stiect was
presented, and as It was signed by owners
of 1G0 out of J5CQ feet of the property In
terested, there was no chance for discus
sion, and the Improvement Is killed.
A petition for the opening and' extend
ing of Kelly street, from Grovcr street
to Seymour avenue, came up for con
sideration. This extension cuts through
Tcrwll'.Iger Park, nnd at the time It was
asked for, Mr. Lohmlre Intimated that
the people In that section would be will
ing to bear the expense of opening the
street: but rf late nothing has been heard
of this p)an, and the probability Is that,
if the street is opened, the city will have
to bear the expense as well as have tho
park cut up. Quite a lengthy discussion
followed. City Engineer Chase stated that
be was having a contour map of the park
made, and was of opinion that Instead
of a 00-foot street. It would be desirable
to have a mu:h narrower one through the
park. The opening of a 00-foot street
would necessitate a cut of 12 feet or there
abouts, which was not desirable. The
matter was finally laid over until the City
Engineer is ready to make his report.
A petition for a change of grade at Esct
Alder and East Thirty-fourth streets was
placed on file, as It did not have signers
enough to allow of Its- being granted. Tha
City Engineer stated that the grade ought
to be changed, as the present condition of
the street Is just the reverse of what It
ought to' be. There btlng a big cut at the
foot of a hill and a light one at the top.
If the names of one-third of the Interested
property-owners can be secured to a pe
tition for the change, it will be granted.
A petition .from a Front-street Jlrm for
leave to hang a banner four feet wide
across the, f cot of Madison street, contain
ing the name and business of said firm,
was promptly refused. The request pro
voked a spirited discussion, and It was the
opinion of the committee that this grant
ing of petitions for hanging banners across
the street, to remain till they were rags
had gone far enough, and a few more pe
titions of this kind is likely to result In
putting a stop to thi whole business.

by the office, and there Is general satis
faction that he took the office. It Is not
always an easy matter to find any one

thought such change will be a good thing.

The Steck Piano Tone.
Thero Is a distinctive individuality to
the tone of all the Steck Pianos which Is
recognizable at once, particularly by the
trained musical ear.
It Is uniform In all tho Instruments
manufactured by Messrs. George Steck &
Co., and differs only In volume according
to the size of the instrument.
This peculiar "Individuality" of the
Steck Tone lies In the fact that Messrs.
Steck & Co. have succeeded where nearly
all other piano-makers havo failed. In-producing
a tone where on the one hand vol
ume was not sacrificed to secure mere
sweetness and limpidity, nor on the other
were sweetness and limpidity sacrificed to
The Steck Tone, the result of years of
struggle, of the constant efforts of Invent
ive genius to reach perfection. Is a most
happy combination of power with those
musical qualities which are so delightful
to the musician.
It possesses a puro. delightfully refined,
and one might almost say, crisp and
pearly singing quality. It is warm, ex
pansive, and responsive, to the most mi
nute nuances of the artist's taste. It is
at the same time rich, noble and sonor
ous. It will be a pleasure to show you our
fine assortment of Steck pianos, also other
standard makes. ...
We sell on easy terms, and will take
your old Instrument In exchange.
