CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
jALTSjcyS WINTER GARDEN Third and

TOU or X WOKDfcBFUX VOTAOE. Sam-
txel Beaton. a man sbout 6C years old,
told a Startling Jitorv VentMnv mnrnlnrr
to Captain Holman at the police station.
'I have Just arrived on an alt-shin from
5t Louis via New York," said he, "and
We left the vessel anchored outside, but
the rope broke and she has floated
&way." The ship wai owned by a mys
terious individual named "Ducky Jesfce,'
and was a model of its kind, 200 feet
long, run by electric propellers, -which
eent the craft through the breeze at a
terrific rate, for the trip from St. Louis
to New York and then to Portland was
made in one night. On board were all
the comforts of a home, but the crew was
composed of unruly machinists, who
marred the pleasures of the voyage.
One of the aeronauts, named Brown,
roDoea Benton of a purse containing K20,
find in the scuffle a sailor was knocked
overboard, and fell down an immense
distance while the shin was soaring dver
the Rockies. When the vessel anchored
Portland, Brown slid down the an
chor line and Benton after him. He
"was unable to catch the wily robber, and
when his own resources failed he thought
to enlist the assistance of the police force.
Bentcn was taken into custody, and sent
to the county jail to await an examina
tion as to his sanity.
Cases Dismissed. In the Municipal
Court yesterday business was light, and
most of the cases went over. Judge Cam
eron dismissed the charge of larceny
against Frank Kublk, of Woodlawn, no
case having been proven against him.
Kublk had been arrested on complaint
of J. H. Chapman for stealing a wood
caw. Evidence showed that the owner
ship of the saw was joint, according to
a contract existing between them. The
charge of assault and battery against
Ed Ryan, brought Sunday, was dis
missed, as the offense occurred outside
the city limits. The case will be trans
ferred to Justice "Vreeland's Court, and
Ryan prosecuted for his attack upon
Jtcse Blacker, a deaf and dumb girl, try
ing to defend a farmhouse from Ryan's
BnrocJBs Nero Repair. The new Board
of Public Works, which will meet at 4
o'clock this afternoon, will face the
cheerful prospect of solving the broken
down bridge problems which wearied
their predecessors in office. The bridge
en Hood street, between Porter and
Gibbs Is in a condition bordering on dis
solution, and something must be done
"with it. The bridge on the same street,
between Caruthers and Baker, threatens
to go to pieces without warning any time,
and the board must provide ways and
means to tie it together till the arrival
of the millennium when the city will
iave money enough to repair or rebuild
c!l its shattered elevated roadways and
lay a few good pavements here and

Farmers are very busy now "making
hay while tho sun shiner." and if tho
good weather holds out, the crept will
b6 pretty well secured by the latter part
of the week. Several grain field? are
being cut near Grcsbam and on the Co

which wore sown early and are already
ripe. There are four steam threshers in
this section, all of which are being put
in readiness for what will probably be a
good Pall run. The grain crop promises
to be good, despite- considerable blight
some weeks ago, and the acreage is large
for a timbered country.

Several committees in connection with
the Elks' Street Carnival met last night
at the headquarters at the corner of Sev
enth and Washington streets, which, be
sides reporting progress, decided upon
several important features.
The committee from the fraternal or
ganizations met and reported nattering
encouragement from all lodges ap
proached on the question of participating
in the grand opening parade. Brother or
ganizations seem to be doing everything
in their power to give assistance where
ever practicable. This committee meets
at the same place next Monday evening,
at which time reports from the labor
organizations will be added.
The committee on allotment of space for
booths was swamped with applications to
such an extent that further time was re
quired for the rearrangement of plans.
Out of the BO booths originally planned
for, applications for C3 were handed in at
last night's session. No definite positions
have been designated as yet, as the ap
plications are still pouring In. The chair
man suggested that a few days' exten
sion in time be granted, so that, should
more applications for booths than the
original 90 Intended come in, then new
plans would be drawn up. Due notice of
this committee's next meeting? will be
given in the columns of the public press.
An entirely impartial plan of selecting
the Queen of the Carnival is being pro
mulgated. Tickets will bo Issued, to bo
obtained at the leading business houses
in the city. Boxes will be provided where
in the public Is Invited to drop tho tickets
with tho namo of the wished-for Queen
written thereon. By Friday of this week
these tickets 'Rill be issued, and by Mon
day next the boxes will be opened by
the committee in charge. The ladles with
the highest number of tickets will be
asked to allow their names to appear as
candidates for Queen of the Carnival.
Manager Rowe reported that the first
Issue of the souvenir button was entirely
exhausted, but that all expedition Would
be used to have a new supply on hand in
a few days.
Answers to invitations to outside lodges
of the Elks were received by th6 com
mittees with a great deal of satisfaction.
A most encouraging one came from Wal

EAST SIDE GIRL ELOPES.
Ran Atvar to California and Married
a Montavilla Man.
Farmer Lunos, who lives about two
mllos east of Montavilla, got up a few
mornings ago to find that his daughter
Ella had disappeared from his home and
could not be found, it was also zouna
that Peter Esp. with whom she had been
keeping company, had also left the neigh
borhood, and putting together tho disap
pearances he concluded that the two
eloped. Just at that moment It would
have gone hard with Peter Esp If Farmer
Lunes could have got his hands on him
or got within gunshot of him, but he
was far away when the father d!sco'
ered his bird had flown from his nest
and his rage was Impotent as well as
usoless. It was ascertained that Esp came
to Montavilla alone and went to Port
land. On the same day Ella left her
home and Is supposed to have joined Esp
at Portland, and together they pro
ceeded to California, Tho girl has writ
ten her parents from California, stating
that she was married and asking for
giveness. Esp is said to be 35 years of
age, while the girl Is but 15. The for
mer does not boar a good reputation
among his acquaintances at Montavilla.
Death of n. Pioneer.
Willis Fisher, of Sunnjslde, yesterday
received by telephone from Catllns.
Wash., news of the death and funeral
of his stepfather. John Clark, a pioneer
and formerly a resident of Portland. Tho
funeral took place yesterday, and Mr.
Willis did not receive the news in time
to attend the funeral. Mr. Clark was 79
years old, and came to California before
IBID. After spending several years there
In the mlnos he came on to Oregon about
1BD5, and resided In Portland until eight
years ago, when he moved to Catllns,
where he had lived ever sln6e. Mr.
Clark was well known In Portland at ono
time. He was ono among the first mem
bers of Taylor-Street Church, and was
regarded as a man of the strictest Integ
rity. For a number of years his business
in Portland was that of carpenter and
builder. He was married to Mrs. Fisher,
u widow, who died Beveral years ago.
A Pioneer Sick.
J. H. Rathbun. a well-known pioneer
of 1S, living at Montavilla, Is slowly
recovering from a very serious illness. He
was sick fbout three weeks, and at one
time little hopes were entertained of his

ASTORIA, July 14. (To tho Editor.)
In yesterday's issue I find the following
most important editorial paragraph, viz:
President Burt of the Union Pacific, heads
the list of directors newly elected by the Occi
dental & Oriental Steamship Company, at San
Francisco. And yet some people wonder why
we don't have mart trans-Pacific steamers at
It eeems to me there must be a combi
nation between tho Southern Pacific,
Great Northern and Union Pacifle to
"bottlo up" tho Columbia. Is it not llkely
tbot the alleged "cut-rate" passenger war
between the A. & C R. and the O. R. &
N. Co. is only a blind to conceal from
our people on this river the fact of a
combine" against the Columbia route
for Oriental commerce, Huntington being
the real owner of the A. & C. R., -while
ho is cheek by Jcwl with Burt at San
Francisco? Lot me ask you If Portland's
interest is not identical with Astoria's In
urging tho Union Pacific lo make this Its
chief port for Oriental commerce. Instead
of using San Francisco and Seattle for
this purpoaa? If Astoria were the chief
port Of the Columbia, Portland would get
nino-tenths Of the benefit from that trade.
She -would also get all the benefit of the
increased values of the annual wheat
product (from cheaper charters) in tho
hands of tho farmers, who niuet continue
to trade to Portland rather than in As
toria, while last-named city, as a port,
can only help and not hurt Portland.
Such eeems to me to bo tho situation,
and I wish you would turn your attention
to tho very serious phase of the question
developed by this seeming steamship
union between the Southern and tho
Union Pacific PRO-OREGON.
MARRIAGE FOR TEACHERS.
The Celibacy Standard Established
by Oar School Board.
PORTLAND, July IS. To the Editor.)
I understand our School Board has de
termined not to employ married women
hereafter as teachers in tho public
schools. It goes still further and In
quires of the appllcaht if she Is engaged
to be married during the coming school
year. It organizes Itself into a police
ni(r tnnnlcHHnn nnrl rpnutreB the snsnect
to answer "guilty or ndt guilty" to this
There is no professional person at 25
years of age who Is compelled to bring
more learning, genius and tact into requi
sition than the teacher then why should
she be discriminated against? The
teacher is an ordained minister of sci
ence, to teach the truth to the people,
for which we pay several hundred million
dollars annually, and she deserves all
the encouragement we can bestow upon
A large majority of the mothers of this
district would vote to employ married
as well as single women to teach. The
mother teacher has a better knowledge
of the wants and conditions of the Child
and generally a more comprehensive in
telligence, experience and education than
her single sister. She is certainly to bo
preferred over a cruel old maid, who is
laboring under the ill effects of celibacy.
Let us take an Athenian view of this
prohibition. The American schoolma'am,
through her energy. Intelligence, educa
tion, patriotism and purity, is the peer
of any woman in the world. Now shall
the Nation deprive itself of the benefits
of her children? To ask the question Is
to answer it
The law favors legitimate marriage.
The courts have held that marriage Is
founded in Nature: that tho public Is
more Interested in It than the parties
themselves r that it is the glory of the
social system. But for marriage all that
is valuable, all that Is virtuous, all that
is desirable in human existence, would
long since have faded aw&y in the gen
eral retrogression of the race. Mar
riage should be cherished by the Govern
ment as the first and choicest object of
In doubtful questions, the court should
lean toward marriage. Courts will set
aside any contract made In restraint of
marriage as being against public policy
and opposed to good morals. Iowa for
many years divorced only the Innocent
party. She became alarmed at a new
evil which was springing up and by a
single act her Legislature divorced the
whole batch. South Carolina boasts that
she has never granted a divorce, but she
never exults over the fact that a foul
mistress system has sprung up which her
Illiberal laws have superinduced.
The marriage relation Is aB Tar above
the free school system as the heavens
are above the earth, and Its prerogatives
Should never be surrendered to any power
In existence. To force celibacy on any
person who is legally entitled to marry,
either by law or through superstition,
is a heinous offense, second only to mur
der. C. BEAL.

PORTLAND, July 14. (To tho Editor.)
I think it would be a good example for
tho city to Set to see that the licenses
Were paid on the blcyclefe the policemen
ride. Aro officers Interested In the law
only to the extent It affects them? I
thought an citizens- alike were called
upon to respect the law. How Is it some
of these extra-officious deputies never
get one of thooe wheels? If the tax must
be collected, right or wrong, let all be
served alike. Odd, Isn't It that such
ovenaightB occur? As to the deputies-,
there are always plenty willing to make
themselves obnoxious to others, if given
an excuse or a little pay. C. w S.
