For Cokcekted Actxox. A small
meeting -was held last evening by
some- o the stockholders and al
leged victims of the Pacific States
Savings, Lioan & Investment Com
pany, in the office of C. K. Henry. -3
Stark street, to organize a concerted
movement against that concern. The case
of W. E. Spurrier, decided in the Circuit
Court Saturday, was another of the same
felnd, and another case by Dr. Hill, at
Albany, against the company, has been
taken into the Supreme Court. Judge
Boise, of Salem, decided that one of the
contracts entered into with the company
was usurious. Each of the six or seven
stockholders present last evening told
about the same story of understanding at
the time of entering into the contract
that the money paid in amounted to about
the principal and Interest on an ordinary
loan, whereas they discovered after pay-ng
the designated length of time that the
company demanded approximately twice
that amount. All present thought they
had been duped, and were determined to
obtain legal redress. Another meeting will
be held "Wednesday evening at the same
Alaska Code Biu Tho Chamber of
Commerce has received the following let
ter from Representative Moody in response
to its request that he take steps in be
half of the Alaska code bill: "I presented
your telegram, representing the Interest
the Chamber of Commerce has in the
Alaska code bill to Speaker Henderson
Immediately on Its arrival. He promptly
replied by saying to notify my friends that
lie would do all he could to bring about
Its early consideration. He called the
chairman of the committee on revision of
the lawe to his Toom and was told that
the earliest date a report from the com
mittee could be had would be "Wednesday
next (May 1C). I am convinced from the
personal interest manifested by the Speak
er that the Alaska code bill will be set
down for special order almost if not Im
mediately after the report from the House
committees on revision of ttfe laws and
territorial affairs is had. At the present
writing there is no indication in the House
of any material change being made in the
Attracts Manx Strangers. H. E
Dosch, secretary of the State Board of
Horticulture, Is delighted with his new
quarters, on the ground floor at 346 Wash
ington street, as he sees more strangers
every day than he used to at the old lo
cation in a week. "The sign 'Bureau of
Information,' " he says, "attracts the
passers-by, who are glad to see the various
ores and fruits on exhibition. Even our
home folks are astonished at the great
jars of luscious pears, prunes, etc., and
many say: 'I never saw the like.' 'Yes
you have,' I Teply, "but you took it as a
matter of course, and thought nothing of
it.' The miners are especially interested
In the ores, the farmers in the neat
sheaves of grain, and the frultraisers In
the big things put up in preserving fluid."

Peculiar Runawat Accident. Thomas
Mann had a runaway yesterday that may
result In the loss of his horse. He was
driving up Morrison street in a light
cart when the wheel caught in a. car
track, breaking the front axle. The horse
became frightened at the shaft bumping
against him and ran at full speed up the
street, but at each step his left hind foot
hit violently against the broken part of
the buggy. When stopped at the corner
of Eleenth, the horse was found to be
bleeding profusely in the foot where it had
come in contact with the axle. The poor
beast suffered considerably for the first
few minutes, and then was forced to lie
down from the loss of blood. A veterinary
surgeon soon arrived, however, and the
bleeding was stopped, after which the ani
mal was carted home on a truck. Whether
he will survive is a question, as the loss
of blood greatly weakened him.
Fight in a Cemetery. Trouble be
tween an ex-sexton and the present sex
ton of a cemetery near Sylvan has cul
minated in a charge of assault being pre
ferred In Justice Kraemer's Court by
William G. Wallace against William H.
Hardy. Hardy was recently superseded
by Wallace, who alleges that his prede
cessor attacked him as Wallace was build
ing a fence in the cemetery. Hardy has
sent word to the officers that they need
not come out after him, as he will come
in when written to. Deputy Sheriff Mitch
ell wrote him yesterday, and so the charge
will be Investigated tomorrow.
Charged With Abduction. A. C.
Smith, a resident of Southern Oregon,
was held to answer to the grand Jury
yesterday by Judge Hennessy in the sum
of $500, on a charge of abduction. Mrs.
Annie R. Rlggs, manager of the Florence
Crlttenton Home, alleges that Smith en
ticed Hattle Howard away from the Home,
and that Hattle is under 16 years of age.
The girl is now somewhere in Jackson
County, and will be brought back to Port
land to testify against Smith. The pris
oner waived examination in the Municipal
Lath Country Registration. Four
registrations from the country precincts
were received by Chief Clerk Steel yester
day. This makes the total number for
Multnomah County 1S.756, and there will
probably be a few more yet. The regis
trations in the country precincts are swdrn
to before a notary public, at the expense
of the county, but the same rule governs
them in regard to receiving no affidavits
after 5 o'clock May 15. Those received
yesterday were made out before that time,
but were sent late.
Wild Strawberries. Wrd strawberries
are caid to be unusually numerous on the
hillsides a few miles south of Portland,
between Bertha Station and Mount Zlon,
and the children who know where to go
have no difficulty in gathering bucket
fuls. In some places the ground is fairly
red wltn them, and they are larger than
usual this year. Blackberries, too, are In
full bloom, and promise a big yield, when
the sun of June and July shall have
warmed them into ripeness.
Changes in Firemen. Archie Graham,
driver of chemical 2, has resigned, to en

GROWTH ON EAST SIDE
REGISTRATION SHOWS INCREASE
IX XIXTH WARD.
Xot a. Vacant House Wltaln tke
Boundaries Preparations to
Close Portland. University.
The growth of the Ninth Ward, on the
East Side, since the last election has been
extraordinary, but the Increase Is no sur
prise to those who have watched building
operations the past two years. The in
crease in the number of votes over the
vote for Governor In 1E9S Is fully 500, giving
a total registered vote of over 2503. It
may be said that there have been no
vacant houses for months, and that as
soon as a family moves from a house sev
eral are ready to move Into it. The same
Is true of the cottages that have been put
up for renting purposes. These are spoken
for In advance of completion. The de
mand for houses In the Ninth Ward can
not be supplied. People are constantly go
ing about looking for houses, but they
usually give it up with a despairing look
on their faces. It la estimated by com
petent Judges that If EO houses were com
pleted today they would all be taken be
fore the close of the day. When the fur
niture factory on the O. R. & N. Railway
has been completed and Is in operation
the pressure will be Increased unless spe
cial provisions are made to accommodate
the operatives. At least 100 men will be
required at the start, and perhaps many
more, and most of them will be men with
families who will want cottages. As yet
there Is no provision for housing them,
although it is stated that a large number
of cottages are eoon to be erected for
them. So the Ninth Ward promises to
continue to Increase. Its population, esti
mating from the vote registered, Is not
far from 11.CO0. which Is probably about
the real figure.
Christian world has for a long time past
had Its Imagination misled by the fancies
of painters; and there is a whole stock
of Images that must be driven out of the
mind, before it can be familiarized with
notions that are a little nearer the truth."
The exhibition of Tissot's work soon set
all Paris in a flame. Such pictures had
never been seen before. In London a pro
found impression was made. New York
was also deeply stirred. Men unaccus
tomed to a display of emotion stood be
fore the pictures with the tears coursing
down their cheeks.
One can get a better idea, of the topog
raphy of the Holy Land, the architecture,
the dress, the faces of the people, by
studying Tissot one hour than by reading
many books. Leonardo's great painting
of the "Lost Supper" is found to be seri
ously at fault, when placed by the side of
Tissot's picture of the same subject. It la
most interesting to place a Raphael or an
Angelo or a Hoffmann near a Tissot and
note the different conceptions of the
The Cathedral class, of this dty. bos
done a real service to the community by
bringing to the Coast a collection of slides
made from the Tissot paintings, which will
reproduce them in the original colors.
Even artlover and all who are interested
In the study of Israel's great hero should
avail themselves of the opportunity of
seeing these famous pictures.
Close of Portland University.
President Whltaker, of the Portland Uni
versity, Is shaping everything In connec
tion with the university for the closing
exercises, which will take place on the
evening of May 3L For some time he has
been engaged In collating the record of
all the students of the university from
the beginning down to the present time,
so that when the institution Is merged
into the Willamette University every
student and every graduate from all the
departments will have a clear record and
become a part of the Willamette. Tnls
has cost Dr. Whltaker great labor, but
he was determined that every otudent
who had been connected with the Portland
University should have his full credit nnd
standing preserved according to the agree
ment. He is determined that the affairs
of the Institution shall be honorably
At present the classes are In tho midst
of their flnal examinations, and although
the university will cease to exist after
the 31st, the high standard of scholarship
is being maintained and the best of work
required of students. In spite of th?
difficulties that have beset the university
the past year Dr. Whltaker and his as
sociates have done good work In the class
room. At the flnal exercises Dr. L. E.
Rockwell, D. D., of Centenary Church,
will deliver an oration on the subject
"The Mile Nine-Minute Man." There will
be music by the Portland University
quartet and some other exercises. Some
degrees will be conferred, while some of
the graduates will receive degrees from
the Willamette University. Dr. Whltaker
will return to Cambridge, Mass., where
he will resume his pastorate. He had been
pastor of that church before coming to
Oregon, and now he has been called back
there. His Portland friends will tender
Dr. Whltaker and wife a farewell recep
tion at Grace Church Wednesday evening.

"Snap-Shotters" "Will Go to
River Xext Sunday.
Elated over the success of their outing
last year, the Oregon Camera Club has
made preparations for a trip up the Co
lumbia as far as Hood River, Sunday
next, and to accommodate the lovers of
the photographic art has chartered a
train from the O. R. & 1. Co. for the
day's outing. It will be remembered the
very enjoyable day spent last Summer on
the river, when not only did the amateurs
of Portland and their friends enjoy the
beauties of the majestic Columbia, but
also many of the Eastern visitors who
had been In attendance at the National
Educational Association meeting, at Los
Angeles, and who, on their return to the
East, had nothing but words of praise
for Oregon's scenery- The Camera Club
has done much to advertise Oregon's
beautiful scenery and the mighty Colum
bia, much of their work having been dis
tributed not only throughout America,
but Europe, and, as may have been no
ticed from time time, reproductions of
their photographs have appeared In the
principal photographic publications print
ed In the East.
Next Sunday hundreds of "snap-shot-ters"
will congregate at Hood River,
which has been chosen for the rail excur
sion because of the many advantages af
forded the amateur. The scenery at that
point Is grand, Mount Hood and Mount
Adam9 being seen to their best advan
tage, and visitors to the city will have a
grand opportunity to see the Columbia
River Gorge and to enjoy the company
of the genial members of the Camera,
Club, who will spare no pains to see to
their comfort nnd show them the won
ders of our Northwestern state.
WHERE THEY COME FROM
A Surprise to Many, Bat Readily Ex
plained. "Where in the world do you manage
to get so many second-hand pianos r"
asked a caller yesterday. "And tnere are
so many really good pianos among them,
too." Well, there are quite a number
of them here Just now, and the reason
for their being here la simply this: Times
are a great deal better now than they
have been. In fact, business conditions
are really very good. Many new homes
are being built, and when people move
Into them, they usually find that the old
piano, while really a good muslcaj Instru
ment, looks somewhat old-fashioned, and
does not harmonize with Its new modern
surroundings. The old piano then finds
Its way into Ellers Piano House, where
we accept it in part payment for a Cnlck
ering, or a Weber, or a KlmbalL We live
In a cultured and musical community.
And just as soon as folks see their wa
clear, they determine upon owning a
high-grade, artistic piano. The very fin
est makes are none too good. Where is
the lady of a house who would not rather
have a valuable work of art adorning the
walls of her parlor than to have some
mere common-place picture? On these
lines, you will find that people come to
Ellers Piano House, and purchase either
a fine, jup-to-date Kimball or a beautiful
and dainty Weber, or a fancy, artistic
UhlcKertng piano, instruments mat are
recognized in polite circles as the vc.y
best, and then we are expected to tako
In their old pianos as part payment.
In addition to the regular line of new
pianos advertised at specially low prices
during this removal sale, there are In
stock this morning: A good New Eng
land. 5145; largest-Slzo Hallet & Davis,
J1S5; fine little Emerson upright, 5150;
another every bit as good as new, 5200.
very fine-toned H. F. Miller, case good
as new, 51S5: an excellent Steck. In fine
condition, 5175; a good New England, 5145;
a Prince & Son, not yet a year old, 5105;
a Gabler. 5100; a Decker & Son, fine con
dition. 5160; another, also good. 5145; a J.
P. Hale, quite old, but good. 5S5; one near
ly new Chickerlng, one fancy mahogany
cased Kimball, used two years, and then
a string of second-hand organs. Story
& Clark, fine, 555; another, 565; Estey,
good, 534; another, finest they make. 575;
Mason & Hamlin, flat top, 524; etc. Terms
of payment to suit yourself. We want
them out of the way. Look Into this be
fore It Is too late We mean business,
and If you get a fine piano here now
we'll see to It that you never regret It.

REPORT ON OREGON TIMBER
"Wisconsin Man Has Inspected Sev
eral Large Bodies.
George W. Harmon, a timber estimator
and surveyor of Madison. Wis., who has
been looking up Oregon timber for a rail
road company in that state, left yesterday
to make his report. When seen at the
St. Charles, Mr. Harmon said he had
made several trips through the timber
country south and west of Portland and
found some very valuable tracts. He se
lected a tract on the north fork of the
Santiam which his principal had arranged
to purchase. The trade, however, will
not be consummated until he makes his
He made examination of the timber on
the Trask, Nehalem, Young's and Clas
kanlne Rivers, and found a great deal of
fine forest, which will soon be called upon
to supply the world's demand, as the
timber of the East and Middle States Is
pretty well exhausted. What tracts are
left In that region have passed into the
hands of a few persons, who demand good
prices. Mr. Harmon will do some in
vestigating in the timber lands of South
ern Oregon and Northern California on
his way home.
CAPE NOME TRAFFIC.
Frelprnt JS'ow Belnsr Received for
That Point at AInsworth Dock.
There was something of a lull yesterday
In the matter of sales of tickets to Cape
Nome, but the California & Oregon Coast
Steamship Company did a good business,
notwithstanding. The ticket sales for the
two preceding days was phenomenal,
eclipsing all previous records.
The company began to receive freight
at the Ainsworth dock foe St. Michael at
S A. M. yesterday. The amount accepted
It was impossible to ascertain definitely,
but It was considerable. This is Mkely
to increase in volume, from day to day, as
the time for departure of the first two
vessels out for this reason draws nearer
The Geo. W. Elder Is already moored
at one end of the dock awaiting her cargo
and passengers. The Nome CRy, which
left San Francisco for Portland yester
day, is due to arrive Friday night. Mon
day the work of stowing the cargo of
these two vessels will begin, and this will
require four days.

TISSOT'S FAMOUS PAINTINGS
Cathedral Class, of Portland, Will
Soon nave Reproductions of Them.
When the. paintings of Tissot were ex
hibited In Chicago last year, the rooms ct
the Art Institute were nacsed to suffo
cation day after day by crowds eager to
study the wonderful conceptions of the
French artist. The remarkable change
which came over the man who had spent
a lifetime in painting common-place scenes,
such as might be expected from a Bo
hemian, Is one of the romances of art.
The man was over 50 years of age, and
the occasion was tho Church of St. Sul
plce, in Paris, whither the worldling had
gone to study faces of beautiful women.
There a vision came to the painter which
transformed him Into a new man, livlth a
new ambition, and a new future.
He left Paris on a pilgrimage to the
Holy Land, where he studied with eager
attention every spot associated with the
life of Jesus, and read the gospel narra
tive more than 100 times. He determined
to paint the story of the career of the
Nazarlne, giving it the exact setting In
which It took place. For 10 years T:ssot
studied and painted. At last he placed
befcre the world the result of his long
toll 500 paintings and drawings.
When his father looked at them he was
amazed to find bow wrong his Impressions
had been of the places which the holy
feet had touched. He exclaimed: "Then
I must alter all my preconceived Ideo.s
of these things! What. Is not Calvary a
high mountain. In the shape of a sugar
loaf, covered with rocks and brush wood?"
"Well, no," replied Tissot. "the Mount
of Cavalry, though it occupied the summ't
