No Sale for Home-SIadb Butter.
Butter has been dear all the Spring:, but
now Is cheap enough, and there is no sale
for any except the best quality. This is
dicjcouraglng: to the -wives and daughters
ot farmers, who keep up the old style of
making butter "by hand." A butter
dealer says he felt very sorry for a
nice, tidy, wholesome looking country girl
who the other day brought to the diy a
lot of butter of her own manufacture,
which tas probably good enough for any
one, but for which she could find no sale.
She was told to try among cheap res
taurants for a purchaser, which, ot course,
meant selling the butter for a very low
price. He said he knew how hard the
poor girl had worked to make the butter,
probably milking the cowe, skimming the
milk, washing milk pans, churning and
working the buttei, and she no doubt be
lieved It to be as good as qould be made,
and, after bringing It to town, must have
been very much discouraged not to be
able to And a market for It at the market
price. But such Is life. Everybody now
adays wants creamery butter, and the best
thing for farmers to do is to sell their
milk at a creamery or procure a sepa
rator and sell their cream, and relieve
their women folks of the labor of butter
making, which is a thankless Job these
"Work on Logging Railroad. The
Deep River Logging Company, which Is
composed of S. Benson, Everdlng & Far
rell, A. Olson and J. Olson, has com
menced work on the construction of a
railroad to their property on Deep River,
and will be ready to begin hauling out
logs In about 60 days. The company has
about 80,000,000 feet of logs within about
three miles of Deep River, and a road
one and one-balf miles long will reach
the edge of the tract. 'About 40 men are
employed in the construction of the ral-
road, and two donkey engines will be
sent down In a few days to haul out logs
for stringers for the bridges on the line,
of which there will be quite a number,
Bome of them 30 to 40 feet high. As soon
as the first mile and a half of railroad
is completed, cutting and hauling logs
will be commenced, and the road will be
extended and the cutting and hauling con
tinued till all the logs are gone.
Building Street Cars. When the car
barns of the City & Suburban Railway
Company were built on Savier street, room
had to be provided for a large number
of horses and a large amount of hay,
grain, etc. Since the road was electrified
the buildings Intended for horses and
feed have come in very "handy" and have
been converted into hops for building
cars, which are fitted up with all neces
sary woodworklng and Iron-working ma
chinery, an electrical repair shop, whero
all the motors, dynamos and electrical
machinery used by the company are re
paired or rebuilt and even the wires are
reinsulated. A number of open cars for
Summer are under construction and near
ly completed, and some of thenf are about
ready to leave the paint shop. The com
pany has a complete outfit of shops and
machinery for doing about all the work
required on its lines or in Its power

neighborhood of the practice to look
around them for a conflagration, as the
members of the department rush around
with all the hurry displayed at a genuine
blaze. Each hose company and truck
throughout the city has a Sunday morn

ies may not be absent at once. In case
of an alarm. The hose companies hitch
to a hdrant, after a short run, and turn
the stream upward, to the delight of the
small boy who may be up in time to
Xake in the scene. Truck companies run
their apparatus alongside of a tall build

The practice keeps men, teams and ma
chinery in trim to run up against the
Cow Question in Politics. The social
fabric of Sellwood was shaken to its
foundations last Summer by the cow ques
tion, the population being pretty evenly
divided on the question as to whether
cows should roam at their eweet wills
through tho city or not. The trouble got
into the Council, and the numerous dele
gations of both men and women who
came down, to argue the case made the
Councllmen very weary. The faction in
favor of restraining the cows won the day,
and now that election is at hand, the
other faction is getting even by sitting
down hard on any of the anti-cow men
who have political aspirations, or a de
sire to be heard at public meetings.
Fortunately for the anti-cow men, the
cows have no votes.

of the girder pattern, which is about twice
as heavy as those on the Third-street
line, which were put down when the road
was operated by horses. The section of
road from Madison street to Sheridan will
be built first and next that part from
Burnside street to the Union railway sta
tion. Work will be commence?! -as soon
as the rails are all on the ffroundiaet

Chickens Getting Cheap. Chickens
commanded a high price all Winter and
Spring, but now the price is declining
and there Is a prospect that It will get
so low that almost anybody cam feast
on fried chicken. This calculation Is
based on tho fact that some 125 Incu
bators have been sold to farmers In the
"Willamette Valley during the past Win
ter, And It Is natural to suppose that a
vast amount of Incubating has been done
and a large number of chickens hatched.
And so the probability Is that the price
ot chickens will get down to bedrock for
a while. There is not much danger of the
market being overstocked with 'Spring
chickens early In the Spring, but at the
natural season for such fowls, when any
old hen or cheap incubator can turn them
out by the score, the supply is "bound to
exceed the demand. As the price goes
down the demand Increases in 'proportion,
and so the chickens are not thrown away,
but people who expect high prices for
chickens must have them, to sell when they
are scarce. In this- state, where the mild
climate ought to make It easy for farm
ers to raise chickens and eggs cheaply,
there is a strong tendency for both to
cost extravagant prices a great part of
Effects of Poison Oak. Alfred An
derson, who has been suffering from a
bad case of poison oak poisoning, is able
to be out again, the swelling of his face
having subsided sufficiently to allow him
to get his eyefl open. He lives in Al
blna, and on his way to the cars follows
a path across a vacant block, on wh.cn
there is some poison oak. Mr. Anderson
sajs he knows the plant and he never
touched it and did not go within 40 feel
of It, but it got there Just the same, and
he got a beautiful dose of it. Some per
sons can handle the plant without being
harmed, while if others get within s'ght
of it they are poisoned. "Whenever it
grows In the neighborhood of residences
or pathways It ought to be exterminated,
but those who do not suffer from it do
not object to It and those who are
poisoned by coming near It are not likely
to undertake its extermination.
Good Shooting at the Traps. The
regular weekly shoots of the M. A. A.
C Gun and. Rod Club at Irvington took
place yesterday and Saturday. The all
absorbing event at the present time Is the
contest for the elegant medal, which tho
club has put up. The permanent owner
ef lhe medal will be the person that wins
It five times or the greatest number of
times during the season. The first win
ner Is Embanks, who has always been
known, as a good trap shot. He pulled
down a tcta". of 37. The other scores In
the contest were: A class Guist 33, Mon

Culllson 30 and Davis 25. B class Whit

Traveling Men Save Furniture. Flro
broke out in the two-story dwelling of
Mrs. Charles Freedner, 710 Market-street
drive, yesterday, afternoon, at 5:30, and
before the department could lay hose up
the steep hillside, the upper portion of the
building was destroyed. Two commer
cial men, Frank Adams and C. W. Colby,
who were passing at the time, rushed in
and by hard work saved a large propor
tion of Mrs. Freedner's furniture. They
even mbved the piano, heating stoves,
and tore up carpets' before the heat
finally drove them away. The house and
contents are owned by Mrs. Freedner, who
carried Insurance enough to cover her
loss, about $700, but Messrs. Adams and
Colby did not have their Sunday suits in
sured, and so are losers considerably as
a result of the episode.
Can't Find "a House. G. H. Carlson, of
Gray's Harbor, arrived in Portland yes
terday with his family. He has purchased
an interest In the Wren Box Factory, in
South Portland, and will live in that end
of town If he can, find a house a thing
his house-hunting experience of last
week taught him Is difficult to do. At
first he was particular as to the kind of
a house he wanted, but now he has de
cided to move Into the first one he finds
vacant and postpone his preference unttl
after he has removed his household goods
from the warehouse. "Three weeks ago,"
he says, "I could find a number of vacant
houses in Fulton and South Portland, but
they are all filled now."
Stepped on a Rustt Nail. Martin
McCarthy, a longshoreman; stepped on a
rusty nail Friday and as a result Is suf

McCarthy on reaching the place was
spoken to by a friend, and In turning

Burnett and H. Allen are the lucky ones.
The former is well known In Portland,
having for a number of years been one
of the most successful men on the track

who will be glad to hear of his appoint

clal Democrats, after a hot and stormy
session last night, decided not to place
a ticket In the field for the coming June
election. There was a fair attendance at
the branch meeting In the G. A. R. Hall,
but the "no ticket" people won by a
small majority of three votes. The meet

member looked suspiciously at his neigh

hurled through the air. The meeting

The Ecumenical Conference of for
eign missions is really a wonder
ful event Two thousand four hun
dred delegates were . present for near
ly every nation, gathered In enthuslastlo
convention. Not for commercial aggran
dizement or political purposes, but for
the Interests of a work of self-denial and
Christian service. It Is the world's great
est convention, and Is representative of
Christianity's triumph In our century.
There is absolutely no other world move
ment but Christian missions that could
thus stir not one nation, hut all nations.
Ex-President Harrison said in closing the
conference: "I have spoken before great
political meetings, where enthusiasm was
at a white heat, but 1 was never In a
political campaign where there was enough
enthusiasm to fill this hall and three or
four overflow meetings three times a day
for 10 days.' Such an event ought not
to pass without awakening our thought
without stirring our zeal In the Master's
work, without thrilling us with the tri
umph ot world-wide Christianity. Ex
Presldent Harrison opened the conference
with these words: 'Tha highest conception
that has ever entered the mind of man
Is that of God, the father of all men, the
universal brotherhood of mankind. The
hope of society Is not In scholarship and
Invention, but In the word of God and tho
life of our Lord Jesus Christ"
"A century ago, the Idea" ot going Into
the great heathen world with the gospel
was deemed foolhardy fanaticism. Then
the Idea of a universal brotherhood was
scarcely dreamed of. Railroads, com
merce, missions have amalgamated the
world, and (he results have far surpassed
what the most hopeful hoped for. While
figures give only a part of actual re
sults. It Is astonishing, almost beyond
belief, that such reports can be made
today as have been brought before this
third conference. Dr. Dennis has laborl
Susly complied results of the year. This
brief summary may give some conception
of the work:
"Societies engaged In foreign missions,
"Income this year. 519.126,120.
"Missionaries In the field, 15.460.
"Native helpers, 77,338, of whom 4053 are
"Principal stations, 557L
"Organized churches In foreign fields,
"Communicants added this year, S4.1E6.
"Sunday schools, 15,032, with a member
ship of 77L92S.
"Native contributions to missionary ex
tension for the year, $1S46 75.
"These results are leaven with which wo
begin a new year."
The speaker continued with many evi
dences of Christianity's spread, and also
the comparative ease of the task today,
when Inventions had lopped off great por
tions of distance. An urgent lesson for
devoted work was drawn from the highly
successful work shown the last few years
In Africa, and the open door to Christian
ity now found In all land?, even China.
CHRISTIAN' "WORK IS JAPAN.
Miss Mary Denton Speaks at Con
At the First Congregational Church,
Miss Mary F". Denton spoke yesterday
morning on Christian work in Japan. For
11 years and a half she has been engaged
teaching In the girl's school which is a
part of the Doshlsha University, and,
filled with enthusiasm for the future of
Japan, she spoke Interestingly on the
situation and needs of the work. Miss
Denton talked on the condition of the
Doshlsha University, where her work has
been for so long. She thought the best
gift of Christianity to Japan is the
Doshlsha. It Is situated in Kyoto, and
includes a boys' preparatory school, a col
lege department a theological school, a
training school for nurses and the girls'
school. It was founded In 1S7S by Joseph
Neeslma, who had his training In America,
and desired to found in Japan a university
after the model which he had seen In the
United States. It grew in siz and popu
larity until there were S00 students, and
Its Influence was great in the development
of the nation. Everywhere In Japan were
to be found the graduates of this institu
tion, and a large majority were Chris
tians. It was said that a certificate of
graduation from the Doshlsha was all
that was necessary as a recommendation.
Two spirits seemed to be filling the hearts
of the people loyalty to Japan and love
for the Doshlsha- But with tho reaction
from foreign Influence and the Introduc
tion of agnosticism, the school lost the
support of the American board and
dwindled to 200 students. Now the uni
versity is regaining Its old prestige be
cause the old constitution has been rein
stated, a new board of trustees favorabl
to Christianity has been e'ectcd. and the
doctrinal differences have been settled for
the time in favor of orthodox Christian
ity. A glowing tribute was paid to the serv
ice of the missionaries as broad-minded
statesmen and greatly to be praised for
their helpfulness in the development ot
the nation. She gave statistics to show
that the Christian influence Is far greater
than its numerical strength would seem
to warrant According to a pro rata rep
resentation there would be only a half a
man in the diet but there are 11 men
actually there. The two political leaders
are both Christians.
Miss Denton will speak again at the
First Congregational Church on Tuesday
afternoon to adult women only at 2:30
"WHAT SHALL THE HARVEST BET"
Sermon by Rev. II. C. Templeton,
New Pastor of Westminster.
At tho Westminster Presbyterian

tended him by the congregation, and ho
was made to feel that his new field will
be an attractive and pleasant one. At the
morning hour yesterday, Mr. Templeton
preached his opening sermon, which was
a sort ot platform on which he stands.
It was practicable and simple. He spoke
from tho text: "Be not deceived. God is
not mocked; for whatsoever a man sow
eth so shall he reap."
"It is the little things of life," said Mr.
Templeton, "the common, every-day hap
penings of life that are important and
make up the great results we gather. So
we are to consider the soil far more than
the sower. When Christ spoko the words
of the text from his unique and pictur
esque pulpit, tho bow of a boat "with a
vast multitude gathered on shore to heed
his words, beyond were waving fields of
golden grain, and the lesson was prac
tical and the surroundings convoyed the
illustrations to enforce the lessons he
sought to convey. Little, Indeed, is said
about the sower, but it Is the seed and
the field that are Important. We are
shown with what facility evil may be
spread. You cannot hope to reap wheat
when barley has been sown, nor the re
verse. With what wonderful facility nox
ious and destructive weeds are spread
and propagated on the farm unless sup
pressed! The winds will gather up and
sow the seeds of tares broadcast in the
night So evil is sown broadcast In the
night while we sleep. It is said that
falsehood will travel twice around the
earth while truth is dressing. So the
need of care and activity and watchful
ness. What a fatal.mlstake a young man
makes who sows his wild oats! What a
false contention that every one must sow
a certain amount" of wild oats? There Is
always a harvest and It cannot be evad
ed. It is bound to come with all its ac
cumulation of evil. It Is sad, indeed, to
see young men sowing wild oats for the
fearful harvest that must come to them.
The harvest of evil Is evil, as the harvest
of the noxious weeds Isa gathering of
noxious weeds. The beauty of life is In
the little acts. We live for others. We
sow for others. The United States and
England are the great missionaries of
modern times. They are carrying the gos
pel to the ends of the earth. Our church
is living for the world at large, and has
its missionaries in every land, spreading
the glorious seed of the living gospel of
Christ for tho great harvest of eternity."
"LOYALTY TO CHRIST.'
Sermon, by Bishop Dabs, at the First
United Evangelical Chnrch.
An Intensely interesting service was held
in the First ,UnIted Evangelical Church,
East Side, yesterday morning. It being
tho occasion of a sermon by Bishop R.
Dubs, D. D., LL. D senior bishop of
tho United Evangelical church, on "Lo
alty to Christ" Bishop Dubs has the
reputation of being one of the ablest men
In the pulpit in the United States, and
the church auditorium was packed to its
utmost capacity, many prominent people
from other portions of the city being pres
ent to hear the distinguished divine.
Among them were: Judge M. C. George,
of the Circuit Court; Rev. C. E. Cline, D.
D., and others. Dr. C C. Poling, presi
dent of La Fayette College, was pres
ent In the pulpit with the bishop. The
sermon was of great power, the orator
swaying the audience with his eloquence.
That portion which was a description of a
shipwreck at sea when the bishop had
given himself up for lost, but was saved
through unexpected aid, was especially ef
fective. The text was from Matthew
x:82, "Whosoever therefore shall confess
me before men, him will I confess also
before my father which Is In heaven."
In part the bishop said:
"The subject matter of Christian confes
sion is designated by the personal pronoun
'me, and there is no scientific or personal
attainment that carries weight In it We
often meet people who display their great
knowledge of the Bible as a proof of their
Christianity, but wo know their lives are
a practical denial of Christ, and that tney
do not live dally their religion. It is right
as far as it goes to be well versed In the
doctrines of the church, dogmatics they
aro sometimes called, but that Is not
enough. A man may know these things
and yet not be a Christian if he has not
the love of Christ In his heart Little
stress should be laid on a man's orthodoxy
and his correctness of faith, but great
stress should be brought to bear upon the
way In which he applies his religion, for
that Is the only thing which counts. If
a man confesses Christ In his heart and
In his dally acts, what better example of
a Christian do we want?
"The power of speech is a wonderful
thing, and a means by which we can
express our love for the wonderful works
of Christ Mouth confession Is a divine
institution of God, and to exercise it Is
an expression of loyalty to him. If you
love him. say so, and tell it to the world
and add your influence to the body ot
Christians who are his Instruments on
earth. Let us confess Jesus by holy song.
Also let there be a warm and loving at
mosphere prevadlng the church and greet
each comer with a hearty handshake.
Confess Christ everywhere and be in sym
pathy with your fellow-men. always ex
tending the benevolent helping hand to
them. It is not necessary to make a dis
play of your religion, but by your simple,
modest living of a pure, noble life, you
may lead another back to tha right path."
CHURCH CORNER-STONE LAID.
An Eloquent Sermon by Itev. II. W.
XCellogx on the East Side.
The corner-stone of the Swedish Meth
odist Church, on Beech and Borthwlck
streets, Alblna, was laid yesterday after
noon, between the showers, with appro
priate services. Rev. H. W. Kellogg, of
the Taylor-Street Church, assisted by
Rev. A. L. Hawley, of Trinity Methodist
Church, conducted the exercises. Rev.
N. G. B. Barton Is the pastor. The
church was organized in 1S37, and has a
considerable membership of aggressive
and active men and women. A neat chap
el Is under construction. It will be 44.6x31
feet. The basement walls are of stone,
four feet high. On tho inside thero will
be a lecture-room and vestry,, cut oft
from the auditorium by sliding doors, so
that all the space may be used for public
functions. The building will cost $1300.
There was a considerable gathering ot
people around the corner where the stone
was laid. The stone Is a block ot granite.
Dr. Kellogg read tho ritualistic ceremo
nies, with the aid of Mr. Haw'ley, and
delivered an address of great power and
eloquence; in which he held that man
is above creeds, systems of church or
ganizations or confessions, and his salva
tion the purpose of the church. He de
clared that men need not bo alarmed for
the reason that creeds and forms are be
ing flung aside and that conditions are
changing under the light of modern criti
cism, for these are not the Important
things. Ho said that It 13 the man that Is
important During tho delivery of the ad
dress there was quite a shower, and Dr.
Kellogg was speaking uncovered to a
crowd under umbrellas. Then the corner
stone was laid, with the copper box with
articles. These were a Bible, eong book,
church discipline, church paper and a few
other articles. It was then carefully
sealed, to remain till the structure should
be replaced by another.
"UNCLE TOM'S CABIN."
Old Familiar Drama Pleases a
Crowd at Cordray's.
A company of playero far above the
average presented "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
at Cordray's last night It would, per
haps, be interesting to analyse the feel
ings with which veteran theater-goers re
gard the famous old play of anti-slavery
days. "What do people go to an 'Uncle
Tom's Cabin' show for any more?" may be
answered from last night's performance
at Cordray's in the words ot the verdict
of one onlooier, who said: "Why, to
There was a good deal of "the real
thing" in the Stockwell aggregation. What
other "Uncle Tom's Cabin" shows give
on the bill boards was seen on the stage.
It will surprise those who will enjoy the
piece over again for the th time this
week to see what theso people offer.
In the first place, thero are associated
with the amusing heavy-weight comedian
a company of capable players, a stage
full of Portland pickaninnies, from a col
umn length up to six feet who furnish
entertainment In a cotton-picking scene,
some very good scenery familiar, may
be, but still good and the indispensable
Topsy and a donkey who, It is suspected,
Is more "up" In comic opera than drama.
I R. Stockwell, as Lawyer Marks,
made his bow to tho audience and sue
ceeded In making as great a hit with his
"side-plays" as he has done before. There
were many of his friends In the audience,
and it was noted not a few stood up.
A new feature and one which will pro
mote Miss Nevada Heffron's name In pub
lic favor was her interjecting "Telephone
Ma Baby" In her Topsy character. In
this she was assisted by a chorus of plc
anlnnles, whoso shuffles and grimaces in
dicated they were no strangers to tho
hoedown and the cakewalk. It was a
fresh feature, and caught on. Miss Hef
fron also sang "Texas Ann."
A quartet of colored singers made the
cotton plantation scene effective, and sup
plied a lively act Theso liberties with
the score and the presence of Stockwell
and his cayuse ralnbowed the tears over
Eva and Uncle Tom with laughter.
