AGAINST PARENTS' WISH
MISS SCHMEER LEAVES HER HOME
TO MARRY WALTER DEXBY.
Dr. Van Water Refused to Perform
the Ceremony When IIeHonrd of
Walter Dcnby and Miss Ethel Schmeer,
daughter of Mr- and Mrs. William
Schmeer, of 14G East Seventeenth
street, were married last Saturday night
without the consent of the bride's par
ents. Mr. and Mrs. Schmeer are old
residents, and their daughter Is -well
known among the young people. Mr.
Dcnby is a dentist, and lives with his
bride, at the home of his mother. Mrs.
W. H. Feagan, CS0 Belmont street. The
young people formed an attachment for
each other some time ago. The young
woman's parents were very much op
posed to Mr. Denby, and refused their
consent to the marriage. The couple
requested Rev. George E. Van Waters, of
St. David's Episcopal Church, to perform
the ceremony, but when informed that
Mr.Schmeer objected, he declined. Miss
Schmeer left her home Saturday and that
evening at 10 o'clock went with Mr.
Denby to the home of Rev. H. W. Kel
logg, who performed the ceremony. Mr.
and Mrs. Denby have since made their
home with Mrs. Feagan, the parents of
the. bride not having relented. Mr.
Schmeer met Dr. Kellogg the other day
and. took him to task for having of
ficiated at the marriage. However, Mr.
Denby presented the marriage license In
due form and everything seemed proper
and regular, and Dr. Kellogg saw no
reason why he should not tie the knot.
Stealing From Churches.
Thieves are again making the rounds
of East Side churches and stealing elec
tric light globes. The churches laid in a
new stock of globes when the former
supply was carried off seme time ago,
and these latter are now disappearing.
The thieves went through the Sunnyslde
Congregational Church, and last evening
the Second Baptis't Church was entered.
A number of electric globes and other
articles were stolen. The thieves seem
to have easy access to every church on
the East Side. They walk through the
doors with perfect ease. The police have
been trying to ascertain what disposition
has been made of the electric light globes,
but no trace of them has been found.
None have been sold at second-hand
stores. .About 100 have been stolen. The
only safe way Is to adopt the practice
of St. David's Episcopal Church, which
has lost two sets of globes. The Janitor
now takes down the globes and stores
them after each meeting.

RURAL MAIL DELIVERY IS INAUG
URATED. Resident of Poivell'a Valley Will Be
Served Rejfiilnrly by Trvo Trav
Free rural mail delivery -was inaugu
rated at Gresham yesterday, the first of
its kind in Multnomah County, and the
first free mail delivers' on a star route
in the United States. The stage arrived
from Portland promptly on schedule time,
and precisely at 12 o'clock the carriers
had their letters, papers and packages
ready to begin their first trips over
courses of more than 20 miles each. A
large number of people of Gresham and
vicinity were at the postofllce to see
them off, the occasion being made a holi
day by all who could be present. The
first delivery was quite large, probably
larger than it will be except on special
occasions, the excess being caused by ac
cumulations in the office for several days
past, awaiting to be taken out.
Tho first suggestion for free delivery
from Gresham was made last May by
Postmistress McCall, who wrote the Post
office Department for Instructions how to
proceed. She was advised to get signa
tures to a petition and a map of the pro
posed routes, which she did. On election
day in June the petition was circulated
with the result that 157 names were se
cured In less than three hours, and it
was sent oft at once to Washington, to
gether with the map. After considerable
delay the route inspector, H. J. Ormsby.
was sent to view the district and at once
gave his permission to organize the sys
tem which was 'done In December, the
details being left in the hands of County
Commissioner Steele and Supervisor Cleve

crowned with success and free rural de
livery starts off under thorough instruc
tions to the carriers and the most favor
Two routes were established, with
Georgo B. Preston and Joseph Holt as
carriers and E. L. Thorpe as substitute.
They are provided with a good horse
each and four-wheeled rigs, covered so
as to protect tho mall and the carriers
from Inclement weather. They will leave
the postofllce as soon as they get their
mail, which will be about 12 o'clock each
day, and It will take them about six hours
to get around their routes. They made
their last preliminary rounds on Thurs
day, completing their tasks of locating
boxes for patrons and giving printed In
structions to the latter for their guidance
so as to facilitate their work. The In
structions contain the rates of postage
on all kinds of mail matter in the United
States and to foreign countries. Besides
this the following information is given in
regard to registration of mail matter:
"Rural carriers are prepared to receive
and register mail on every trip. The fee
of 8 cents may be paid with ordinary
postage stamps, attached to the article, or
the money to pay them may be delivered
to the carriers, who will write the amount
In his receipt.
"The carrier must see that the letter or
parcel bears the name and address of the
sender, and the name of the person to
whom it is addressed, as well as postofilce
and state of destination. It must be en
closed in a strong envelope or wrapper
and be In perfect condition, as well as
bear the stamps for postage and fee, un
less the same is paid in money.
"The carriers are obliged to refuse let
ters which have been opened and resealed.
or which are otherwise in bad condition;
also, articles which arc not inclosed In a
sufficiently strong envelope or wrapper;
also, those which contain matter likely to
destroy, deface or otherwise damage the
malls, or Injure those who handle them;
and those which for any reason are known
to be unmallable.
"Each carrier is obliged to deliver a re
ceipt for every article registered by him
at the time of its acceptance and will
otherwise protect the sender by giving
exact change or by bringing it back from
the postmaster on the next trip, the ex
cess to be in serviceable postage stamps
In the latter case."
Each patron has been supplied with a
piece of red cloth, which must be dis
played on the box when It contains mall
for the carrier. If It is not displayed he
will not be obliged to open the box un
less he has mall to deliver. This arrange
ment will save him much valuable time
and avoid unnecessary stops.

understood that the carriers are to take
money for them and bring the order back
next trip. The wagons contain boxes and
pouches for delivery and collections, and
each one is supplied with a cancelling out
fit, so that mail may be delivered along
the route if any such is found in the
boxes. Besides, they are authorized to
sell stamps, stamped envelopes and post
al cards, and they arc obliged to report
all sales and cancellations when they re
turn to the office after each trip.
The carriers are not required to wear
uniforms at present, but they are sup
plied with a badge on which is incrlbed
"U. S. Mall, Rural Free Delivery." These
badges are to be displayed on the front
of the carriers' hats, so as to be con
spicuous. It Is probablp that uniforms will
be prescribed before long, as the depart
ment requires them in nearly all other
branches of the service.
It is expected that the system will work
well, and other near-by neighborhoods arc

HE WILL HEAL THE SICK.
Schlatter, the Divine Ileal er, Spcakn
Concerning Ilia Powers.
Rev. Charles McLean, better known as
"Schlatter, the Divine Healer," is buplly
preparing for his free lecture and demon
stration of divine or faith-healing, at the
Marquam Theater, on Sunday evening, at
7:30 o'clock. He says that, through faith
healing, he will heal the sick, restore
the sight of the -blind, cure the insane,
and that the dead -will be raised. If the
Lord wills it, and if the surviving relatives
of the dead persons have faith.
Schlatter, in an interview, said: "The
Germans call me 'Schlatter, the Sleeper.'
I was born in New York City in 1S4S, and
when a mere Infant 1 was taken by my
parents, who were Scotch, to Edinburgh,
where I nttended school, and afterward
graduated at Edinburgh University, and
the Divinity Hall of the Free Church of
Scotland. In 1SG2, I was ordained as a
Presbyterian minister and medical mis
sionary and began my life-work, to cure
the sick by faith-healing, in Edinburgh.
After seven years' work In different por
tions of Great Britain, I sailed for Hall
fax, . S., and began my career In Can
nda and this country as a healer.
"I have visited and worked In every city
of prominence in the United States. In
1893, I died and was burled for 40 days and
nights in the mountains of Colorado. My
spirit ascended to Heaven, but I am not
permitted to say what I saw there. My
spirit came to earth again, and I was
ordered to begin work at Chicago. I am
on my sixth trip around the world, and
after my eeventh trip, I shall die again.
"Now, I want to say that I do not heal
myself. I pray to God to heal people, and
I have faith, and he heals them. On Sun
day night, I will pray for and touch every
sick or afflicted person separately, and
they will be cured if they will have faith.
I want cases where the physicians have
failed. During my career, I have been
the Instrument of raising seven people
from the dead three at Chicago and four
at London, England. Faith Is every
thing." CLEVER CARVING IN WOOD
A Ronmanlnn Refugee Entertains
Crovrds in a Show "WIndovr.
Quite a crowd of spectators blocked the
sidewalk, in front of Woodard, Clarke &
Co.'s drug store all day yesterday, despite
the rain storm, watching the motions of
a Roumanian wood carver, who trans
formed plain chunks of Oregon oak Into
artistic representations of Liberty, under
whose benlgn protection ho Is now bask
ing, after "years of persecution by the Rus
sians of Roumanla. This artisan's
name is Matschen Pollak, and he learned
his trade In Bucharest, but with 22 others
managed to escape alive from that region,
crossing Austria with the aid of Jewish
friends, and finally obtaining passage at
Havre for New York. The arrival of the
party here a month ago was mentioned
by The Oregonlan at the time.
Matschen seems happy In having an
audience of llberty-lovlng people, as he
wields mallet and chisel all day long, but
his limited knowledge of English prevents
him from giving vent to his feelings. All
he could say to a reporter yesterday was:
"Here liberty everybody; nobody care
what religion; here I stay, never go back
to Roumanla. never, never." He speaks
some German and is able to tell how the
Russians massacre Jewish families, burn
their houses and lay waste their fields for
the purpose of driving them out of the

Particular of the Killing of Yonng
Hamilton nt Sabanjr.
Mrs. S. E. Hamilton, of Amity, has re
ceived the following letter from the com
mander of her son's company, giving de
tails of the boy's death:
"Tanaum Leyte, P. I.. Dec. 20. 1900. It is
my sad duty to advise you of the death of
your son, Edwin E. Hamilton, a member
of my company. He was a member of a
detachment on an expedition against one
of the bands of ladrones; they had been
out In the mountains seven days, without
finding any trace of the enemy, when, on
the morning of December 14, 1900, they
were led Into an ambuscade. In which, at
the first fire, one ofllcer was wounded,
one man killed and one wounded.
"Our men formed for attack Instantly,
and began firing in the direction of the
slight puffs of smoke, which were the
only Indication of the enemy's where
abouts. Your son was kneeling beside
the officer, and with his rifle In the posi
tion of 'aim, was struck with a Reming
ton bullet, which entered the left temple,
paslsng through his head and making its
exit Just back of the right ear. His death
must have been Instantaneous, as, after
charging the enemy's works and driving
them out, on returning, the party found
Hamilton's body still In the kneeling po
sition. "It affords mo much satisfaction to be
able to inform you that your son had al
ways been an excellent soldier, and that
he was a young man of excellent moral
character. His courage was of the high
est character, and personally I feel his
loes very keenly, and can appreciate a
mother's sorrow in losing such a son.
"The engagement occurred at Sabang,
near Barugo, in the northern part of the
Island of Leyte, and the body was buried
near the scene of action, together with
one other, who was also killed instantly.
Several others were wounded, and they
were removed to the hospital at Barugo,
where two others died subsequently. Com
pany Li lost in all four killed and two
wounded. Both these bodies have been
ordered removed to the soldiers' cemetery
at Barugo, where the graves will be prop
erly marked for Identification.

Many people have wondered why Mr.

of his biggest money-makers and is to

Abbey Sage Richardson, one of the au

ished the manuscript of the latter play,
she gave it to her son and Mr. Munro
to read. "While they were discussing Its
merits one afternoon Mr. Frohman called,
and. in course of, conversation, depre

badge of merit that "Zenda" possessed,
for he always refers to "The Pirsoner of
