HEIR TO THOUSANDS
Good Fortune for a Pioneer
REMEMBERED BY OLD FRIEND
Rev. mid Mrs. John Fllnn Will Go to
Vancouver to Care for Mr. Rosa
and. Receive Latter's For
tune When He Dies.
The Rev. John Fllnn, a pioneer minis
ter -who bogan his work In the Northwest
In 1S60, has been, made the beneficiary of
the will of an old Vancouver, Wash., citi
zen, Sir. Ross, and will thereby Inherit
money and property estimated to be worth
$25,000. For several years Sir. Fllnn has
been on the superannuated list, and has
been living with his wife on East Weld
ler street, between Grand avenue and
East Sixth. Thy will move to Vancouver
and take care of Mr. Ross, which is a
condition of the will.
Mr. Fllnn has been a close friend to
Mr. Ross, an old and well-known resident
of Vancouver. For several years Ross has
been an Invalid, suffering from cancer,
and not expected to live long. He became
dissatisfied with the care he had been re
ceiving, and sent for his old friend. Rev.
Mr. Flinn. An agrement was made, it is
said, by which Ross executed a new will,
making Mr. Fllnn sole heir to his property
on condition that Mr. Fllnn should look
after him while he lives and give him a
decent burial. The will, therefore, was
made in Mr. Fllnn's favor, and Mr. and
Mrs. Fllnn will move to Vancouver into
one of the houses of the Ross property,
to carry out the arrangement that seems
to be agreeable to both.
Rev. Mr. Fllnn, who has been at Van
couver for the past week, looking after
Mr. Ross, was at his home, on East Weld
ler street, Holladay Addition, yesterday.
He practically confirmed the report. He
said that he and Mr. Ross had been old
friends, had lived in the same house, and
had known each other for the past 40
years or more. He said that he had been
at Vancouver assisting Rev. Mr. Todd in
a meeting, and heard of the serious Illness
of Mr. Ross and went to see him. Then
followed the agreement. Mr. Fllnn said
that Ross entered Into the arrangement
and had the will drawn up absolutely on
his own desire and volition In the pres
ence ef witnesses.
Mr. Flinn came to Oregon as a mission
ary In 186. He traveled through the wil
dernoss and sparsely settled districts In
this state and became widely known. In
nearly all the early charges he served is
pastor, and also acted as presiding elder
of the Salem district. He performed the
marriage ceremonies of pioneers and for
their sons and daughters, and officiated at
their funerals, and was everywhere wel
come In Western Oregon and Washington.
The old pioneer and his venerable wife
have many warm friends in the state,
who will be glad to hear of his good for
tune. But few of the ministers are living
who were here when Mr. Flinn came,
among them being Rev. John W. Miller,
Rev. X. Doane and Rev. Isaac Dillon.

Those favorable to the annexation of
Mount Tabor school district, No. 5, are
quite hopeful that the territory will be
brought into the city at this session of
the Legislature, and are working energet
ically along that line. One of the leaders
of the movement said .yesterday that un
less deceived as to the position of the del
gation on the question of annexation, he
was coafident annexation would be ac
complished at this time. The lines of the
territory to be brought in conform closely
to those of the school district, only at
the east, and a small Section that prop
erly belongs to the MontavIUi district is
"I am sure," said a resident yester
day, "that the majority of the residents
favor annexation. Our petition was signed
by more than a majority of the people.

It is true a remonstrance was gotten up
and contains a long list of names, but in
spection of the remonstrance will dis
close the fact that many of the names are
from outslle the territory it is proposed
to annex, and these ought not to prevail.
It is not proposed to take In anything
south of Hawthorne avenue, and yet
signers are on the remonstrance from
south of tho avenue. There are a good
many reasons for annexation, and one Is
the matter of sanitation. We will soon be
compelled to get sewerage. Then there is
our school debt pressing for payment."

Thos. Q,. Seabrooke In "The Round
er" nt the Mnrqnam.
Expectancy of genial stage fun has good
basic playground on the announcement of
the coming to the Marquam Grand on
Friday and Saturday nights, February 15
and 16, with a matinee Saturday of
Thomas Q. Seabrooke in "The Rounder,"
the newest and greatest Casino gayety.
This production with Seabrooke as its
chief funster, rollicked along at the New
York Casino last season for 202 nights.
It is described as a comic opera vaude
ville in three acts and four scenes, by
Harry B. Smith. The music is by Lud
wlg Englander, and It is said that his
present effort surpasses in tunefulness all
of his former compositions, not even ex
cepting "The Passing Show" score. The
scenes of the play are laid In Biarritz and
Paris, and permit of some pictorial Ideas
in costuming. The first scene of the sec
ond act is, possibly, the most startling.
This Is supposed to take place in the
star's dressing-room In a theater in Paris.
It is in this scene that Bertha Waltzlnger,
In the character of Thea, a ballet-dancer,
Is Intruded upon while changing her cos
tume by the Due de Paty du Clam. This
bit of stage business, while of an anxious
nature for a few moments, is said to be
turned off most humorously. One of the
newest of the Incidental characters is
Siegfried Gotterdammerung. the leader of
a German street band. He has been en
gaged to play, and has been paid In ad
vance, and, therefore. Insists upon render
ing his discordant music at the most in
opportune times, simply because he has
been paid to do so, and somebody must
get the music Seabrooke himself is
credited with the greatest success of his
career in this piece. He appears through
out its three acts as Maginnis Pasha, an
Irish Turk, the combination Issuing from
the Celt's wreck on the coast of Turkey
and his subsequent adoption by the Sul
tan. In all three acts he is variously
comic in his repeated searches and capture
of Thea, a folly dancer, of whom he is
enamored. The company provided by
Manager Samuel E. Rork to support his
star Is an unusually strong one, and in
cludes such popular artists as Bertha
Waltzlnger, Jeanette Lowrle, Will C.
Mandeville, Herbert Crlpps, Nellie Lynch,
Harry Stuart, Mabel Blake, Allle Mar
shall, Francis Tyson and Emma Naylor.

POET OF REFORM.
Apt and Pithy Criticism of the Third
"Some Poets of Social and Political Re
form" was the subject of Professor Gay
ley's third lecture delivered last evening
at the High School. Much that was en
tirely new to the audience was brought
forward for their consideration, and this,
together with the flow of apt and pithy
criticism, sympathetic humor, and grace
of style that characterized the lecture,
left a most happy impression upon all
who were forunate enough to be present.
Professor Gayley Is no mere pedagogue,
but a man of fine feeling, bright temper
and rare culture, who Is in close touch
with everyday humanity. A number of
poems were read by him to illustrate his
remarks, and so happily were these given
that the personality and message of the
poet were brought home to the hearer
with telling power and significance.
Only English poets of the 19th century
were touched upon. Among these was
cited Augusta Webster, a woman who
knew how "to hit from the shoulder"
when her attention was directed to any of
the social evils of the day. "To One of
Many ' was read to show that her words.

strong and true, came directly from the
lieart to the heart "Tired," the soliloquy
of a blase hero, who marries a Maud
Muller, and brings her xo town, thinking
to mold her to his Ideals, was also read.
It was shown to be peculiarly Illuminative
of the problem that confronts the mod
ern woman of fashion that round of
treadmill ceremonies that dissipates en
ergy, and Is so destructive to persistence
Among the poets of political reform,
considerable stress was laid upon the
"Corn Law Rhymes" of Ebeneezer El
liott, who knew so well how to arouse the
oppressed to a knowledge of their degra
dation. His verses, a little wooden per
haps, but full of pathos, nevertheless,
were the heart of the movement that
finally won the championship of Richard
Cobden and John Bright, and ended in
the final repeal of the corn laws. Whittler
has dedicated some of his finest lines to
Elliott, and Carlle spoke of him as one
of the divine men of his day.
Eliza Cook, who died about 11 years
ago, and Ernest Jones were quoted as the
poets of the chartists, whose movement
toward reform ran parallel with the Antl-Corn-Law
League. Eliza Cook was not a
great poet, but few English writers have
had a warmer hold upon the people. Her
verses were trite but instinct with good
sense and patriotism. And although she
was lacking In high Imagination, she was
not desttiute of artistic power, as was
proved by her poem, "God Speed the
Plough," a plea for the commons, at a
time when there was danger that the peo
ple would lose them. Ernest Jones, the
agitator, wrote verses In prison, his pen
being a rook's feather from the jailyard.
His "Songs of Democracy" were passion
ate, and showed an inherent rythmical
Gerald Massey, who took part in the so
cial revolution of 1S48, voiced the passion
of degradation; but his poems were bright
ened by hopes and courage born of pathos.
He showed true genius, one of his figure,
"We Climb Like Corals, Grave by Grave,"
being quoted as worthy of 'Tennyson or
Shakespeare. It was Gerald Massey who
inspired George Eliot to create "Felix
Holt, the Radical."
As it was held to be necessary to ap
proach Swinburne, Morris, Mrs. Browning,
etc., from other sides than that of pure
reform, these will be held over to another
evening. The next lecture "Paola and

The climate of Utah and Colorado Is
temperate the year round, and clear skies
and sunlit days are as proverbial In Win

precipitation 14.77 Inches. With such in
consequential precipitation there can be
little or no trouble from snow in the dis
