PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS BI
PIA.Hf ABSENCE FROM DUTY.
Some Are Referred Boole for Fur
ther Explanation Salaries of
a Few Raised.
Every member of the School Board was
present at the session last evening, and a
lively interest- was taken in each propo
sition presented and in each case a de
cision was reached after arguments pro
and con. The vaccination question was
settled for the third time, several teach
ers were raised in salaries, free tuition
was granted to a number of applicants,
new seats ordered for several school
rooms, and other mattters of routine sou
The first matter that came up was the
excuses offered by the teachers who had
been absent during school hours from
various causes. Several had attended
weddings or funerals of "very dear
friends." One had a new reason. The
landlady at her boarding-house usually
kept the clock half an hour fast. The
day in question she had turned the clock
back to the correct time. The unknow
ing schoolteacher reckoned on a half
hour's leeway and was late by 30 min
utes. The entire frankness of this excuse
-was appreciated by the board and readily
cranted. The others were referred back
to the writers, requesting them to be
more specific, by giving names of their
friends whose funerals or weddings they
The vaccination question bobbed up
serenely, despite the decided squelchlngs
of the past meetings. A dozen applica
tions for exemption were received. In
cases when the physician furnishing the
certificate of 111 health wajn known by the
members ef the board te be conscien
tiously opposed to vaccination, his certlfl
crte was not deemed sufficient, and sev
eral applicants were advised to consult
the City Physician. Others were not spe
cific as to the nature and cause of the
ill-health suffered by the children, and
mora definite information was reqi -sted.
A few were granted when the children
were afflicted with scrofulous diseases,
or such ailments as bronchitis.
The following changes were authorized
s to the salaries and personnel of the
teaching force: The resignation of Miss
Isabel McEwan, of the Clinton Kelly
school, to date from November 30, was
accepted. Janitor Wllhelm, of the South
Portland School, was raised in salary
from, $22 CO to $30 a month, having taken
an extra room. Miss Helmbach, of the
South Portland School, was raised in sal
ary from half pay to full pay. Principal
Aldersen. of the same school, was raised
from $TO0 to $S00, following out the reg
ular scale fixed by the board. City Super
intendent Rigler's appointment of Mrs.
Victor as assistant in the night classes
of the Central School was confirmed, and
salary fixed at $30 a month. The salary of
Principal Jameson, of the Thompson
School, was raised from $1250 to $1400, hav
ing stood at the former figure when he
was In charge of the smaller Thompson
School. The salaries of the Janitors of
the night schools were fixed at last year's
figures, approximately $3 a month for
each room cared for.
A merry little tilt occurred between Di
rectors Thompson and Beach when the
question of securing new seats for one of
the rooms in the Thompson School came
up. City Superintendent RIgler recom
mended that this be done. He also added
that the first grade room in the North
Central School had the poorest equipment
as to seating of any room in the city. Di
rector Beach championed the cause of
the North Central School.
Thompson made this rejoinder:
"I propose to see that the Thompson
School Is well provided with seats. If the
district can't do It, I shall do it my
self, and let the champion of the North
Central School Go the same for his."
By a compromise both rooms in ques
tion were finally ordered furnished with
The following students were granted
free tuition: Edith Hill. Ethel Hill. Edith
Kempt, Irene Hlggins, Ada Overstreet,
Cora if. Thompson and Ellen Johnson.
The various schools were authorized to
receive Thanksgiving donations from the
pupils for the Children's Home. Baby
Home, and Boys and Girls' Aid Society.
The accumulated bills were audited and
ordered paid. The South Portland and
Fulton Park Schools were ordered sup
plied with drawing models. The type

American author. "It is described as a
"romance of the Confederacy," and its
scenes are laid in Richmond, Va., during
the War of the Rebellion. It is one of
the most absorbing dramas ever put upon
the stage, and audiences are held spell

the fall of the last curtain. It is Intense
and thrilling In character, but is relieved
by frequent delicious comedy scenes,
which Gillette knows so well how to
write. "A Divorce Colony" Is a new
play by Sydney Rosenfeld, author of
"The Senator," "A Possible Case," "The
Club Friend" and other well-known
plays. His latest work, aside from "A
Divorce Colony," is "A Modern Crusoe,"
in which Roland Reed was starring when
seized with the illness which now keeps
him In a hospital. Mr. Rosenfeld calls
"A Divorce Colony" a "farcical romance
of South Dakota." It was produced for
the first time on any stage at the Grand
Opera-House, San Francisco, by Mr.
Frawley last week, and proved to be an
extremely ludicrous affair. ""Madame
Sans Gene" and "The Senator" are both
familiar to Portland playgoers, and have
been features of previous Frawley sea
sons. Mr. Frawley, who originated the
part of Lieutenant Schuyler in "The Sen
ator," now plays the title role, and it is
said to be one of the best things he has
ever done. Already the demand for seats
for the Frawley week is heavy, and all

baptismal vows and the benediction of

Tetecrapb Operator, Sick and De

Despondent on account of 111 health and
lack of money, J. B. Arnold, a telegraph
operator, temporarily living in Portland,
took his own life yesterday afternoon.
by shooting himself through the head
with a pistol bullet. This he did in
broad daylight on the street bridge at
Tenth and ZJorthup, in full .sight of a
number of passers-by. He was seen
standing looking over the railing, then
to place a. pistol to his head and pull the
trigger. He was neatly dressed in a dark
blue suit, and the sudden tragedy aroused
the whole neighborhood! The Coroner
was notified immediately and removed th
body to the morgue.
At the Inquest late yesterday afternoon
the following facts wero brought outt
Arnold was a telegraph operator, em
ployed by the O. R. & N. Co at Coyote,
this side of Umatilla. There he was
lonely and told friends the Idea of stay
ing there was maddening. He started In
work there August 9, quit November 9,
and called Saturday at the office of the
train dispatcher for his time. He was al
most penniless and pledged his watch
with the proprietor of the St. Charles
Hotel. J. F. Davis, for one night's room
.and board. Yesterday, while talking to
R. S. Poole, a lodger at tne bi. jnaries,
he expressed himself as being very de
spondent. ,He said he would either go
East to see his mother in Indiana, or to
New Mexico, and If his health did not
Improve he would kill himself. He vis
ited a Portland physician, who told him
he had only a few months to live on ac
count of his weak heart. He intended to
leave for Indiana on the afternoon train
yesterday. He bade his friends good-bye
and left them.
The dead man -was a native of Carlisle,
Ind., where his mother lives. He was
unmarried and about 26 years old. Before
coming to Portland he had worked as an

IN SEVEN DEVILS DISTRICT
Three Railroads Are N ovr Headed for
the Mlnins Region.
Thomas Heady, a Seven Devils mining
man, who is staying at the Perkins for a
few days, thinks" that portion of Western
Idaho will become a very important min
ing section when it is connected by rail
with the O. R. & N. or Oregon Short
Line. He, is company wife Portland cap
italists, is interested in the Red Ledge
mine, whose ore assays high in gold,
with 'a good sprinkling of copper. Con
siderable development' work has already
been done on the ledge, which bears
every evidence of depth and permanence.
The Peacock mine near by, he says, is
already shipping ore to Boston, although
the rock has to be hauled over the rough
mountain roads to Concord, a new sta
tion on the Welser River, 75 miles dis
tant. The cost of shipment over this
wajron road is J7 60 per ton, and the
freight by rail to Boston amounts to 1
cent a pound, or $20 per ton. The cost
of mining the ore is $4, and the incidental
expenses of handling en route, he thinks,
will bring the total cost to $30 per ton.
As the value of the ore Is $90 per ton,
there is thus $S0 profit netted on every

railroads in the near future, Mr. Heady
says. One has been surveyed from Baker
City; 60 miles of another have been
graded do-wn Snake River from Hunting
ton, while the Welser River road is al
ready within miles, and Is still build
ing. With one or aU of tljese connec
tions, the district will soon became a
great shipper of quarts and of copper
ore. He thinks the Huntington road will
be the most available, as it follows down
the Oregon side of Snake River, with an
easy grade, and the mines on either
side of the river can have branches con
necting -with the main line. Snake River
will have to bo bridged here and there,

Manufacturer of Process Butter De
fends His Product.
G. H. Hathaway, of Sloax City, Iowa, a
manufacturer of process butter, was in
Portland yesterday. He had become in
volved In a legal contest -with the Wash
ington Food and Dairy Commissioner, wno
seized about $1000 -worth of process but
ter on board the cars at Spokane, and
whllo the case Is pending In the court
there Mr. Hathaway thought he would
take a little run to 'Portland.
"Process butter," he said, "Is a pure
and wholesome food, notwithstanding so
called chemical expert testimony to the
contrary. It is made from dairy butter,
bought from the various farms of Iowa,
and is subjected to a high temperature;
its 16 per cent of old milk taken from it
and replaced by the same amount of that
which Is new and sweet. No old or
rancid butter Is used, as there no
process for sweetening such stuff.
"The prejudice against process butter
arises from ignorance of its ingredients
and the self-interest of parties who de
sire to monopolize the butter market.
The chemists who testify that they -can
tell the difference between creamery but
ter and process butter simply don't know
what they are talking about, as there Is
nothing in the process butter which may
not be found In the first-class creamery
article. As well might a man's shirt be
called a dangerqus garment, after he had
washed it, as butter tha$ has been 'pro
cessed' be considered unfit for food.
Sioux City people prefer the process but
ter to the creamery product, quite fre
quently, and we have many customers
who could not be Induced to dispense
with process butter at their tables."
Mr. Hathaway declares he will carry
this Spokane case to the United States
Supreme Court if the Washington courts
decide against him. He thinks the Food
Commissioner had no right to seize the
butter before it was unloaded from the
cars, and that at least he should have
waited until the butter was exposed for
sale In the retail stores of the city.
He said this was the first trouble he
had encountered In any state, although
there are two similar cases pending
against other men In Seattle. He has no
market in Oregon for his goods, as the
butter-makers of this state can compete
with those of Iowa and there would be no
use In sending his goods out here -when he
can sell at better advantage In New
Xork and other Eastern States. He finds
the -creamery butter sells as cheaply In
Oregon as It does in Iowa, while eggs
are afso about as cheap out here as back
His process butter plant has a capacity
of 8000 pounds per day, and he has no
difficulty In disposing of his entire prod
uct at remunerative prices. Iowa dairy
men are doing well these times, although
they are compelled to house and feed
their stock for half the year. -A good
deal of butter Is made even in the coldest
part of the year, the cows being well fed
on grain and roots to enable them to
give rich milk. He thinks Western Ore
gon would be an Ideal dairy country, as
the grass seems to grow nearly the year
around, and the stock can be maintained
at comparatively Bttle expense. He left
last evening for Spokape, and expects
a decision In the lower court there today.
Andrew Allen, executor of the will of
"SVllllam O. Allen, deceased, filed his final
account in the Probate Court yesterday,
showing that the estate Is Insolvent. The
property was appraised at $89,716, and
much of i,t was taken on mortgage fore
closure suits. The cash receipts were
$6053, and the executor's -commission was
$1914. The approved claims amounted to
$13,430. The name of William O. Allen
was mentioned In connection with the
George Sayres murder case, and he was
one of the bondsmen of X. N. Steeves,
who was tried and acquitted of participa
tion in the crime. Among the claims
filed against the estate were those of a
number of well-known lawyers, but they

Provision tor Fire rdrants Other
Places are being left at every other in
tersection on East Twenty-eighth street,
as the new 6-inch main is laid on that
street, between East Stark street and the
Sandy road, where fire hydrants may be
attached. These hydrants jure needed, but
they are not on hand at present. Chief
Campbell was over that district last week.
Especially at the corner of East Twenty
eighth street and the Sandy road a hy
drant Is badly needed to afford some pro
tection to the Doernbecher factory plant.
It will no doubt be placed there as soon
as possible. The Commissioners would be
glad to put in a great many hydrants,
but they have not the hydrants nor the
money to buy them with.
A hydrant will also be placed on East
Water and East Taylor streets when it
can be done. The Troy Laundry has laid
a 6-Inch main from East First street to
East Water, and the hydrant may be at
tached to this pipe line. This will afford
fair protection to the surroundings. The
laundry has completed a roadway from
East Water street to the rear of the
buildings, so there is access to the back
end. There is now talk of building a
platform from this roadway on down to
the river. Access to the river for a flro
engine would give better protection to all
the property up and down East Water
street than fire hydrants. The expense
would not be very great to extend a plat
form to the river from this roadway.
If the large property-owners would club
together the roadway might be extended
to the river, and an abundance of water
secured In case of fire. The 6-lnch main
on East First street can only supply a
limited amount. The fire department has
access only at one place at the foot of
East Yamhill street to the river, but this
is several blocks north. t
Another House Robbed.
The home of Mrs. Jane T. Gray, on the
corner of East Twentieth and Thompson
streets, Irvlng's addition, was entered and
robbed Saturday night. The house had
Just been completed and Mr. Gray moved
a few things Into the building Saturday,
intending- to take possession Monday.
Rp.tnrdfiv Tilcrht thft front door was opened
with a skeleton key without marring theJ
lock. A trunk was taKen out oi me
house and broken open, and the plated
silverware stolen. Nothing else was
taken. The burglar left the building by
-i rpnr door. He was evidently a past
master at the business. Mrs. Gray in- I
formed the police of the loss and a close
watch will be kept for the articles taken.
Less than two months ago, before this
house was finished, $75 worth of tools
were taken from It, belonging to carpen

Some heavy grading Is under way on
East Ankeny street, between East Twenty-fourth
and East Twenty-eighth streets,
for the double track of the City & Sub
urban Railway Company, -which will be
laid to the car barn. It Is necessary to
shift the track to one side to make room
for the second track, and the dirt taken
out is being used to make a fill under the
trestle at East Thirty-fourth street. On
East Twenty-eighth street the grading is
finished for the second track, the Iron is
on the ground and a force of men are get

When this portion has been double-tracked
there will be continuous double tracks
down town. No steps have yet Deen
