CiTY NEWS IN BRIEF
MARQUAM GRAND "The Rounders."
CORDRArs THEATER "Shooting the
Chutes." METROPOLITAN THEATER-'Tbo Angel of
Trapping Industry Declinino. A
farmer's boy -was seen yesterday market
ing a few muskrat skins, one mink skin,
and about a dozen skunk skins at a com
mission store on Front street. The amount
he received for the whole was not large,
out the lad'e eyes lighted up as he Jin
gled the- coins in his pocket and remarked,
'I wish they had all been mink skins."
The dealer, who handles hides, wool and
furs, said the boy -was the first "trapper"
he had seen for some time. "The fur
business of this section Is nothing like
what It used to be," he said, "and la
falling off all the time. The fur-bearing
animals are about trapped out and there
is no longer enough left to pay any one
for making a business of trapping. Beav
er are still quite numerous in places, but
it is no longer allowed to trap them, and
as deer and elk are protected, there are
o more deer skins to be bought. Coyote
klns brought a good price last year and
owing to this and the bounty on scalps,
a great many coyotes were killed, and this
has caused a decline In prices and the
coyote skin business has gone all to
pieces. Mink skins maintain a fair price,
but mink were never numerous and are
now scarce. A number of coon skln3
come In, but there Is not much value to
them. A few bear skins also come in
and vary greatly in price, really fine ones
being scarce. Strange to say skunks
seem to be getting more numerous in the
"Willamette Valley, but their skins bring
a small price. We get some Belgian hare
skins but they arc worth only about 3
cents. There are a few others still com
Ing in and occasionally a very fine skin,
and the same may be said of fisher, but
the days for trapping furs In Oregon
will soon be over except in inaccessible
parts of the Cascade and Coast ranges,
w here many fur-bearing animals will con
tinue to flourish for a long time. I ex
pect to see pome pretty nice lots of skins
coming in this Spring from such sections,
as the heavy snow In the mountains will
have a tendency to drive the animals
down into valleys and places where they
can be caught"
Secured a Sbcretart. The Toung
"Women's Christian Association of Port
land, which has been on the lookout dur
ing several weeks for a general secre
tary, has Just succeeded in securing the
scrices of Miss Alma Hunt, of Balti
more. This is regarded as a stroke of
good fortune. Miss Hunt is a gradunte
of the Baltimore "Woman's College, and
his been doing successful association
work In her native state, New Hampshire,
In the city association at Nashua. She
comes highly recommended by the na
tional committee, and will arrive next
w e ek, probably the 20th or 21st. The only
drawback to this arrangement will be
the loss of Miss Elsie "West, who has
been acting secretary, temporarily, until
permanent one could be found. Miss
"West's helpful presence In the city has
been of the greatest service to the Port
land organizers of the Y. "W. C. A., and
she is sure to be greatly missed. .But she
has already prolonged her visit here be
yond her original intention, and is needed
In Chicago. The association announces
that its rooms will be ready for visit
ors in about 10 days.
Free Cookinq School. The "Woman's
Club, operating through the home de
partment, announces the opening of a
free cooking school at the Home and In
dustrial School for Girls (formerly Home
for Unemployed "Women), 306& Third
street, near Clay. Lectures and demon
strations will be given on Monday,
"Wednesday and Friday evenings of each
week, to which not only those in the
Home, but also all working women inter
ested in the study of practical house
keeping are Invited. A teacher In cook
ing will be In constant attendance, as
sisted by the club women, one of whom
will be present and give a lecture or
demonstration each evening. All girls
attending a course of 21 lessons will re
ceive a certificate of attendance, signed
by the club committee. The opening lec
ture and demonstration will be given
Monday evening next, February 18, at
7 43 o'clock, at the Home, and will con
tinue every "Wednesday, Friday and Mon
day evening thereafter. All the working
girls or women Interested In housekeep
ing are invited to attend without charge.
Listing Buildings for Assessment.
The deputies whom Assessor McDonell
has out looking over the city and noting
all improvements made during the past
year and listing them for assessment,
find their work not so pleasant since the
clear, cold weather ended. They have
to carry a plat-book, which contains a
diagram and description of each block in
a certain district, and have in the course
of their investigations to examine this
frequently, and as when It Is raining
one hand is employed In holding the
book and the other In holding an um
brella to protect the book, the deputy
works at a disadvantage, and feqls the
reed of a third arm. The deputies re
port a very large number of improve
ments, which will materially in
crease the tax roll for the year. There
are so far only two deputies in the field
and they have been out for two or
three weeks. Assessor McDonell having
taken the matter of assessing improve
mmts in hand earlier than usual.
Mr. "Wilson's Lecture. The applica
tion of Herbert Spencer's great formula
to the themes of social life opens up
many surprises to those who have not
bcrn watching the thinkers and best ex
positions of evolution. Such a surprise
to some may be the thesis Mr. Robert H.
W llson will maintain this evening, in the
Filial science course at the Unitarian
Chapel. That the largest amount of per
sonal liberty can only be secured by thp
groatest possible amount of intelligent
co-operation, the meeting ground of so
cialism and individualism, or the harmon
izing of their conflict, will be sought
along the lines which have been so Illum
inated by biology and the kindred
sciences. The lecture is commended to
te thoughtful among all classes, and

Culinary Question Not Answered.
"A Housewife" writes to The Oregonlan
to say that a fashion magazine which she
takes contains the following statement,
and she wishps to know whether it Is
true or not: "Strange to say. the sweet
est and most delicately flavored part of a
beef is the neck, and if people were more
aware of this fact it might soon become
the fashion and Instead of being the
cheapest, would soon become the roost ex
pensive part of the animal." It Is hardly
fair to ask The Oregonlan to decide such
a question which Housekeeper should de
cide for herself by purchasing a beefs
neck from her butcher and cooking parts
of it in various ways. If the fashion mag
azine had stated that the moon was made
of green cheese there would have been
some reason in applying to The Oregonlan
for an opinion in the matter, but House
keeper Is better prepared to ascertain the
facts In regard to the sweetness, delicacy
and flavor of beef's neck than The Ore
gonlan. It may be that the fashion mag
azines are not satisfied with dictating
what people shall wear and desire to pre
scribe what they shall eat: If so, it is go
ing to be very hard on people who have
formed their tastes and preferences in

the eating line. It may be that the steak
"from right back of the horns" Is the
finest in a beef, but if so the fact has
been kept secret a long, long time. When
Housekeeper has completed her experi
ments with beef neck, will she be good
enough to furnish The Oregonlan with the
result of her investigations, "not neces
sarily for publication," but as evidence
pf her good faith in the matter. If the
neck Is the best part of a beef, there
are a great many who would like to
Fulton "Wants Electric Railway.
Residents of Fulton are very anxious for
the construction of an electric railway
to their town by way of the "Whltehouse
road, and are getting up a petition fa
voring the application made by Andrew
Graydon for a franchise for such a line.
The proposed route of the line is from
First and Jefferson street along the west
side of the Whlthouse road, through Ful
ton, and thence out the Taylor's Ferry
road. While the majority of the residents
of Fulton are in favor of the road, there
are quite a number opposed to it, on the
ground that it would spoil the "Whltehouse
road. The proposed road would be a good
thing for residents of Portland who de
sire to visit Riverview cemetery, as un
der the present conditions it is necessary
to walk the mile from Fulton to the ceme
tery or drive there. Mr. Graydon is much
In earnest about his road, and says he
has good backing.
Looking for a Location. E. P. Bren
nan, of Rhinelander, Wis., writes to the
Chamber of Commerce that a committee
will leave that city about February 20,
for a Western tour, to select a site for
a screen-door factory. If a factory is
built. It will go to an enterprising city
with first-class shipping facilities and a
waterway In reserve. The Wisconsin peo
ple will not locate where they would be
"hampered by transfer charges and be
at the mercy of one road." They "prefer
to have a number of switches or different
roads direct to the plant." Mr. Bren
nan asks a great deal of information
about lumber supply, taxes and insurance,
which the Chamber of Commerce will
supply. The date of the committee's visit
to Portland Is not known.

Exnmlnntlon of the Campaign In Its

for Its Promoters.
PORTLAND, Or., Feb. 14. (To the Edi
tor.) The attempt to regulate the prac
tice of medicine and surgery in any Ftate
by statutory enactment, while laudable
In the main, is more often than other
wise open to censure from the standpoint
of the friend of the public's welfare a
consideration that calls for denunciation
of unfair or vicious legislation of any
There is perhaps today no trust forma
tlon in the United States that holds aa
arbitrary a sway over the conditions
which determine the relation between the
man who has the goods to sell and the
buyer of these wares, as exists in the
organization known as the medical soci
eties of the different municipalities and
commonwealths of the country. It ss
not going too far to state that the effort
of every regular practitioner who urges
the necessity for the enactment of state
laws to regulate the practice of medi
cine or dentistry seldom overlooks the
urgent necessity which exists for pre
serving the integrity of the society to
which he belongs, as a close corporation.
The more aggressive men who urge legis
lation of this kind often practically ig
nore all appeals of fair play from the
purchasing public's standpoint.
A number of years ago when the two
rival baking powders of the East were
making r. hard fight for the control of the
ousiness or this field a prominent prac
titioner of Portland who at the time was
an honored member of the state medi
cal society readily Indorsed the merits
of one baking powder (for a most valu
able consideration, of course), and then
for a larger fee subsequently gave the
manufacturer of the rival baking powder
a stronger written Indorsement than he
gave the man who had been unfortunate
enough to appeal to him in the first place.
And yet, the members of the "regular"
school of medicine have the assurance to
denounce "quacks" In their open meet
ings. And still another instance, some
eight or ten years ago a man of culture
and of the highest attainments in his
chosen profession, came to Portland to
open a dentist's office. As he stated
plainly at the time, there are two methods
which a professional man can adopt to
get himself before the people, one is to
advertise openly just as an honest dealer
in any legitimate line is privileged to
do, or to impose on the public's credulity
by a lavish display of horses and car
riages or other accoutrements that will
demand the public's notice. He wisely
choose the first of the two methods. His
marked success best attested the Intrinsic
merits of the goods he had to sell which
compaf his case the special skill
it had xa .. him many years of hard
work fo acquire, and the advanced meth
ods he had adopted for alleviating the
sufferings of that part of the community
who were suffering from diseased molars.
He hit the old-line dentists so hard here
that after a year or more of warring
against the fractious member of the den
tal fraternity, they concluded to cry
enough. With the promise to sin no more,
the offending dentist, who by that time
had more practice than he could attend
to. was received into the local society of
dentists with open arms. Like other men
who have achieved their end through the
display of superior talents he was open
to suggestions of compromise, comport
able, of course, with his own sense of
justice and his personal dignity.
The bill now before the House and
Senate for the regulation of dentistry
practice in this state is class legislation
of the most vicious character. It is leg
islation urged principally by the Port
land dentists with the direct object In
view of driving out of business a firm of
dentists of this city who advertise In a
way wholly legitimate. In an open meet
ing of the looal dental society some time
since one member asked bluntly if the
bill as framed would In Itself drive
"these fellows" out of business in Oregon
The assurance that it would evidently!
above all other considerations, com
mended the proposed measure to his ap
proval. It is very clear to any disinterested
observer that the requirements of any
applicant for admission to the state med
ical or dentist's societies today are no
more found in the skill of the man who
wants to get in, than they are in his
freely expressed opinion that he should
not advertise, and that he will adhere
strictly to the tenets of the faith which
the "ethics" Of his SOCletv rprnimlio Tf
Is the Individual practitioner against tho
public, with the fullest indorsement of
his brother member so long as Tie does
conform in a strictly conventional way
to the "ethics" of his profession.
The people of the East learned yeans
ago that a physician or a dentist may
advertise and still be a man of superior
attainments In his profession, and that
the power given any medical society to
turn down a holder of a diploma from
any recognized school of standing simply
because he advertsed was a dangerous
authority to confer on any body of men
as narrow In their views of large mo
ment and so wedded to the Ignoble pre
judices of their professions as are the
average doctors and dentists of the old
echool. In cases of malpractice the suf
ferer at the hands of any practitioner al
ways finds an easy way for redress, and
beyond this the diploma of any advanced
college of recognized merit is protection
enough for the public to demand at the
hands of a state medical or a state dental
Portland has witnessed the success of a
number of "advertising doctors" who
were men of marked ability. Dr. Mont
gomery, of the Copeland Institute, has
taken two post graduate courses In one
of the greatest of New York's hospitals.
He is a man of culture, a gentleman in all
his Intercourse with his fellow man, and
fair-minded to a marked degree. He Is
not only a man of ability in his profes
sion, but a man well read on all general
topics of general discussion. He has per
formed operations In his Institute In Port
land that have called for the heartiest
congratulations on his achievements from
his friends among the "regular" doctors.
On his small fee of 55 a month for the
treatment of all cases, he has amassed
no small fortune since he first estab
lished himself In Portland. No single ac
tion of his since he first located here has
subjected him to the least bltbf public
censure, and yet he was refused admit
tance to a local club that does not at
tempt to go beyond the bounds of good
personal character In passing on appli
cations for membership, simply because
A doctor of the "regular" school per
formed an operation not long ago for
which he demanded a fee of 52500. He
did gef 51500 after a fight in the courts.
Many a man in moderate circumstances In
Portland has seen his entire savings of
several years or more wiped out In his
attempt to meet the demands of a local
practitioner who had attended him or his
family through some trying spell of sick
ness. If the appeal for legislation by
the dentists or the physicians is made on
the basis of sentiment, let this sentiment
be of a wholesome nature, from the
standpoint of the layman, the man who Is
called upon to support In' luxury the
members of close societies who cry out
the loudest for "protection."
"THE ROUNDERS" TONIGHT
Thoniaa l. Scabrooke Company nt
the Mnrqunm Theater.
Thomas Q. Seabrooke, whose art as a
creator of hilarity has kept him at the
top among the comic opera stars since
he leaped to distinction years ago in "The
Isle of Champagne," is booked for appear
ance at the Marquam Grand tonight,
Saturday matinee and Saturday night in
"The Rounders," the sparkling gaiety with
which he packed the .New York Casino
for 202 nights last season.
"The Rounders" Is described as a comio
opera vaudeville, in three acts, by Harry
B. Smith, and the music is by Ludwig
Englander. The story opens In Biarritz,
a Parisian watering place, at the height
of Its gay season. Among the guests are
the Marquis Baccarratt and his young
American wife, a Philadelphia girl, who
has been carefully brought up by a
worthy family of Quakers. Driven des
perate by the Quakerish prudery of his
wife, which she really carries to the
laughing point, the Marquis seeks conso
lation in the society of Thea, a dancer,
who Is the pet of the Paris boulevards.
An accident betrays the husband's gay
doings, and lands the wife In the French
capital simultaneously with the arrival
of the husband, who Is there by appoint
ment with Thea. With American decision
the jealous little Quakeress penetrates
boldly Into the greenroom of the theater
In which her rival Is appearing, where
she discovers her fickle husband at the

Identity, wins the sympathetic interest of
the actress. The little Quakeress asks
the actress the secret of captivating and
holding the affections of men. and the
dancer, by hiding her visitor behind a
screen, gives her an object-lesson in a
scene which follows, using the wife's own
husband as one of the foils. Chagrined
and defiant, the good little wife deter
mines to try her own powers of fascina
tion, as soon as she can find a suitable
She has not long to wait. She finds an
all too willing subject in Maginnls Pasha,
an Irish Turk that is to say, an Irishman
wrecked upon the coast of Turkey, who
has been adopted by the Sultan, and who
Is now running the gamut of Parisian
gaiety. It develops that, in his wild
oats days, Maglnnis broke the heart of
Seraphine, the aunt of Thea. and now
the stage maid of tha celebrity. Seraphine
discovers the indentity of her recreant
lover just as he Is about to repair to a
rendezvous with the Quakeress, entered
upon by that very proper little lady for
the sake of the lesson it may convey to
her husband. Maglnnis, however, finding
the wife in Thea's dressing-room, believes
it Is Thea herself with whom he Is co
The wife schemes carefully, with the
result that her husband is ent to a hotel
to wait In vain all night for Thea, while
the lady is decoyed elsewhere. Seraphine,
who, by the way, Is fair, fat and fifty,
meets Maginnls when he Is In such a state
of intoxication that he imagines she is
Thea. As the Marquis knows Thea could
not have met the Irish Pasha and doesn't
know of Seraphine, and every other cir
cumstance points to the certainty that It
is his own good little Quakeress wife who
Is the reckless partner of the Turkish
Celt in the orgies of the night before, his
anxiety Is extreme.
The end of the piece, of course, clarifies
the wife's conduct, enlightens Maginnls
and deals the husband a needed lesson.

"The Prisoner of Zenda" has been ac
corded an approval that has been given
comparatively few literary dramatic com
positions of late years. Other dramatiza
tions of popular novels that have been
received with popular favor have been
successful in retaining the beauty of the
literary work in the dramatic presenta
tion, Some have made the author's ideas
subordinate to the scenic artist's effects;
others have largely obliterated the value
of the Intellectual work, to permit of the
introduction of a "sensation," while still
others have absolutely thwarted the au
thor's purpose, In order to fit the manner
isms or Individuality of the actor or act
ress, who has essayed the stellar role.
But In the drama of "The Prisoner of
Zenda," the literary atmosphere, the liv
ing realities, the distinct personality that
Anthony Hope gave his theme and each of
his characters, are faithfully reproduced.
An excellent presentation of the play is
"The Country Girl."
"The Country Girl." The name sug
gests gingham frocks, pinafores, sunbon
nets, milk pails and a soubrette with a
more or less soiled countenance and
frisky dances, but it was an entirely dif
ferent country girl which William Wy
cherly gave to the stage in the year
1672,' and which has held its own as a
drawing card ever since. This country
girl was of the period when the stately
minuet was the only dance known in
civilization, and when gallants In purple
and fine linen did battle royal for the
favors of their "ladyes falre," and Is a
comedy of the old school, depending upon
the brilliancy of its lines and the sparkle
of Its wit for its humor instead of mod
ern horse play. It has been termed "the
champagne of literature of that period,"
and Its froth and sparkle lend a charm
to a most original story. This Is the
play which the late Augustln Daly re
vived for Miss Rehan and in which that
well-known star scored such a tremendous
success three years ago.
This will be the Shirley Company's
opening bill at Cordray's, Sunday night,
and the management promises a produc
tion, of It which will be worthy of the
company and the house.
