Much Street Work. A very large
amount of work In the way of street and
sewer improvements Is now under way or
in contemplation. At every meeting of
the Council numerous petitions are pre
sented asking for such improvements.
Contracts were awarded yesterday by the
Board of Public Works for improving
sections of six streets, the cost of which
amount in the aggregate to about J2G.C00.
It is probable that about nine-tenths of
the property interested will be bonded
lor the payment cf the assessments for
these works. Some time ago, through the
efforts of a few good citizens, who found
a flaw in the bonding act, persons who
had taken advantage of this act to nave
the city borrow money for them at 6
per cent, for 10 years, to pay for street
improvements, were released from paying
any interest on the money the city had
borrowed for their accommodation. Now
the city s paying interest for such people
on about $150,000. Other citizens are com
ing to the conclusion that if they art
to pay interest for such fellows it will
5k as well to make these fellows pay In
terest on money lor their use. Hence
the large amount of street work being
ione, and likely to be done between now
end the meeting of the Legislature, when
the defect in the bonding act will prob
ably be removed.

Old Parso.vagb Removed. Tho little
old Baptist parsonage on Alder street has
been moved to its new site, fronting on
Fifth street, at the southeast corner of Its
intersection with Alder, and It now re
mains to be seen for what purpose It Is
to be utilized. Comparing it with the
fine five-story stpre of the Meier &
Frank Company, on tho opposite side ot
Fifth street, which covers half .a block,
one can notice the dlffereace between the
Portland of 40 years ago and the Port
land of today. A fine cherry tree, loaded
with half-grown fruit, and several other
trees, had to be cut down to make room
for the ancient structure. The work of
building a BOxlOO-foot annex to Honeyman,
De Hart & Co.'s store, which will cover
the site of the old house, will soon be
commenced, and a portion of the rear of
the Baptist Church will have to be re
moved to make room for It. The changes
on the quarter block will look much more
cltyllke than the chicken-yard which has
occupied the ground.
Many are REaisTEREfo. There were 2S3
voters registered yesterday, being nearly
a record "breaker. The total registration
is now 15,625, which Is but 124 hort of the
entire vote In Multnomah County last
election. There are yet seven days to
register, and they are coming la at the
rate of nearly 200 a day. From now uatll
May 15, whea the books close, the office
will be open until 8P.1L The late hour
are taken advantage of to a great extent,
there being over 100 registered after 0
o'clock on Saturday alone. About 3 reg
istered after that time last night. Every
day a number of men born in foreign coun
tries show up without their papers, and
feel slighted whea the reglstratloa clerks
refuse to take their word that they have
them. Oae maa yesterday said that he
liad no papers, and was surprised when he
was told he could not vote without tak
ing out papers, as be said that he had
voted at every election In Portland for
the last ten years.
Verdict op Suicide. An laquest was
held yesterday afternoon, to determine the
exact cause of the death of W. J. Charl
ton, and the verdict rendered was "suicide
after an attempted murder." Mrs. Mary
Farrell, whom Charlton had tried to kill,
was not well enough to appear at the in
quest, but tho Coroner had her deposition
taken at the hospital. Sho testified that
Charlton had been drinking heavily for
a month, and had partaken of nothing
but intoxicating liquor for two weeks.
Ho had threatened her life several times
within that period. Dr. Rand thinks tho
woman will finally recover, but she 13

The bullet from Charlton's pistol passed

Fruit Prospects. Harvey E. Louns.
bury, traveling freight agent of the South

to fruits by reason of recent cold weather,
is not nearly so bad as at first reported.
He says the fruitgrowers estimate that
they will have a two-thirds prune crop,
a one-third crop of pears and a full av
erage yield of apples. It was reported
that instead of a total failure of th
peach yield in the vicinity of Ashland.
it is now estimated that tho crop will
yield about 15 per cent. There will also
be a considerable quantity of prunes and
apples about Ashland.

CORRUPT CODE OF MORALS.
Sad Condition of Women in Japan
Facts and FifTures.
Miss Man- F. Denton, who has spent
over 11 years in Japan, will lecture this
afternoon at 2:30 at the First Congrega
tional Church, on tho subject of "The
Woman Question In Japan." The meeting
will be free, but open to adult women
only. Miss Denton Is very ardently inter
ested in tho amelioration of the condition
of women in Japan, and has a startling
array of ficures to show tho urgent need
of it; for the country as a whole Is sunk
la the grossest immorality; and this low
standard of public morals is constantly
showing itself In high places, in most scan
dalous fashion among officials, whose bril
liant talents glvo them great weight aad
Influence la the nation.
"At least 40 per cent of the marriages
there end In divorce," she said to an Ore
gonian representative yesterday, "and the
power to obtain the divorce rests entirely
with the husband, who, oa the most trivial
excuse. Is permitted to free himself from
the marriage bonds; while the wife can
not on any plea obtain a release. The
new code, which is to go lato effect very
sooa, will give a few more privileges to
women, but evea whea this Is in full .force
throughout Japan which will not be sooa,
since tho remote districts are slew to ac
cept changes it will do little to raise the
standard for women.
"Statistics show that out ot the 6,903.000
women ia Japaa betweea the ages of 15
aad 35, 170,000 are leading dissolute lives;
in other words, the ratio is 1 out of 40."
Miss Denton has many figures and details
to prove the shocking condition of morals
there, for sho has thoroughly Informed
herself, at great labor, on every phassof
the vital subject. These she will lay be
fore her hearers in dotall this afternoon.
Hero It Is sufficient to say that a large
part of this terrible moral degradation
comes from motives of self-sacrifice. Tho
daughter is generally persuaded to sell
herself in order to help her father, her
brother or other near relative, who Is n
sore pencunlary straits, and takes this
means freeing himself from his obliga
tions to his creditors. Self-abnegation
and habit of obedience are so strong In
tho average Japanese woman that, repug
nant as the life is to her mind, sho is al
most In-ariably prevailed upon to accept
it in order to bring help to those sho
loves. Miss Denton lays great emphasis
upon tie beauty of character that prevails
among Japanese women. "Tho women of
no other nation," she stoutly maintains,
"can compare with them ia natural purity
of heart, gentleness and devotion to tho
members of their family.
"The remedy for this corrupt coadltioa
that exists la Japan lies In higher educa
tion, and tho Introduction of elevating
Western amusements, chiefly music, for
until tho present time music has beea used
maialy by the dissolute. Now, however,
there is shown a tendency among tho
Japanese toward the appreciation of clas
sical music of the best sort. Large audi
ences will assemble to listen to a Men
delssohn programme; and the most popu
lar professor In Toklo Is a German pro
lessor of music"
Miss Denton says that If the Christian
nations are to elevato Japan, they must
begin with the home, and see that tho
wives toko their proper place in that
home. For now they hold a very subordi
nate position indeed. They never appear
when thero aro visitors, but geishas
(dancing girls) are hired to take their
place as hostess. With higher education
only can these matters be remedied. There
is a growing number of Japanese who per
ceive their nation's lack of high standards
lor women and feel keenly that never can
any real progress be made, socially, until
the present standards are raised. For
It must not ba misunderstood that the
Japanese are entirely Wind to tbclr own
defects. There are many who deplore
greatly tho pitiable condition of affairs,
aad are anxiously desh-ous to remedy it.
IMITATING THEIR ANCESTORS
"Wisconsin Lumbermen Buying: Sup
plies lor the Future.
Eastern timber-land purchasers still
continue to meet Oregon owners in Port
land hotels, and many sales are being
quietly effected. A prominent purchaser
from Duluth, who Is now at the Imperial,
was asked yesterday If 10 years was not a
long time to look ahead In laying out
money on the Pacific Coast, and ho re
plied: "It may seem a long tlmo, but the
end justifies the means, and what else
can our people do with their money?
The banks in the East will pay nothing
for the use of it, and it must be Invested
somewhere. The young lumbermen of
Wisconsin. Minnesota and Michigan are
cebirous ot patterning alter tneir rathers,
who come West from Maine nearly half
a century ago and bought up the timber
lands at a low rate, as we are- doing now
In Oregon and Washington. They paid
at the rate of 10 cents for what has since
become worth $7 50, and what hotter in
vestment could they have made? The
men from Maine could see lurther ahead
than the residents of the Mississippi Val
ley states, and they made the money
while the older Inhabitants Just stood
around and looked on. The men from
Wisconsin are now buying up Oregon tim
ber while the old Oregoalans are standing
by and letting the good investment go by
default. Weyerbauser could see a good
thing last year, when he purchased 1.000,
00 acres of timber lands from the North
ern Pacific, though ample capital for the
purchase was lying idle In the banks of
Portland and Puget Sound."
This man further said that he found a
groat many men eager to get rid of their
timber laads la Oregoa. and he told of
one man who last month had come out
here from Dnlmh tn hnv sifttfino n-nrtv.
and became scared at tho amount lor gale, j
and he actually returned home without
buying an acre". "The troub.e Is that a
timber-laud owner will often give his
lands to half a dozen different persons
to sell for him, and whea each of these
calls on the prospective purchaser tho
' stranger thinks there is just six times as
, much to sell as there is. ' He wi.l not
j permit low prices and frequent proposals
to scare mm out. out is ratner giaa ta
have the competition run in his favor.
"When the transcontinental railroads
reduce the freight on lumber to 25 cents
per 100 pouads," he coatlaued, "the East
ern markets will opea up for Oregoa aad
Washington timber. I am assured that
this reduction will be made before long,
aa Weyorhauser had such an underload
ing with the Northern Pacific when he
mado that big purchase, and if that rail
road comes down oa Its charges, the oth
ers are bouad to follow suit. The present
rate of 40 cents will not permit the ex
portation of very much Oregon fir, but
the 25-cent rate would have the enTect of
throwing tho markets of the Eastern
States wide opea to the vast timber re
sources of the Coast.
"A large amouat of Oregon spruce Is
now taking the place 6f whUe pine In In
terior house finishing1 of the Atlantic
States, and as there Is an enormous quan
tity of spruce along the coast of Ore
gon that Is as yet practically untapped,
the exportation of spruce will Increase for
many years to come, The redwood belt,
which begins in Curry County, Oregon,
and continues southward through Del
Norte and Mendocino, will also be tapped
for Eastern consumption. This redwood
Is tho most lasting timber that grows,
and It never seems to decay. Eastern
men aro now In that portion of the Coast
gobbling up the timber wherever they find
bodies for sale."
NOTHING LIKE "UNCLE TOM"
Stoclcvrcll Company Plcasen a Mon
day Audience at Cordray's.
There is nothing like an "Uacle Tom"
show to please an audience. That fact
was clearly demonstrated by the delight
with which Mr. Stockwell's production of
the famous old play was received at Cor
dray's last night. Great pains have been
takea to throw about tho piece the true
Southern atmosphere, and tho cotton
fields, the darkles and the surroundings
all breathe the air of the sunny South.
Miss Nevada Heffron's singing was one
of tho hits of the play, and was several
times encored. The quartet Is another
feature which is a pleasing Interpellation.
The advance sale for the week shows that
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" has Just as many
Irionds In Portland as It always had.
PRESIDENT M'KrNLEY AND
The New York World says: At the Ver
mont Methodist Episcopal Conference held
at Bellows Falls, VL., the report of the
committee on temperance elicited consid
erable discussion over tho question wheth
er President McKInley was In the bab:t
of drinking wine at banquets.
Referring to this report, Bishop Merrill
mado tho following statement: "Last No
vember thero was a meeting of Methodist
Bishops In Washington, and at that time,
Bishop Waldca had a long talk over the
question with President McKInley as to
whether he drank wlno at public ban
quets or not. Afterward Bishop Walden
reported to the Bishops that President Mc
KInley had said that when he attended
banquets ho did not turn down the glasses,
but left them standing and they were
filled by tho waiters.
"He always had, however., a separate
glass from which he drank Apolllnarls
water, but tho wino always remained un
touched." COMING ATTRACTIONS.
