THE MOUSING OREGONIAN, MONDAY. FEBRUARY 18, 1901.
CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
MARQUAM GRAND "The Prisoner of
CORDRATS THEATER-'The Country Girl."
Melon-Growing in Yakima Country.
A farmer in the Yakima country who
went into the business of raking water
melons and cantaloupes on a small scale
last ypar and who shipped some of his
melons to this city. is so well satisfied
with the experiment tha.t he nan decided
to go into the melon business on a larger
scale. He has written to Portland commission-men.
vrlth whom he dealt last
year that he Is preparing to plant 200
acres to watermelons and cantaloupes,
and win be prepared to ship a carload
per day to this city as socn as the fruit
begins to ripen. The climate in parts of
-the Yakima country Is very favorable for
Browing melons and they begin to ripen
early there, which is a great advantage.
Outside of the early supply, which comes
Xrom California and is seldom good, the
Portland market has for some years been
supplied with melons by the growers of
the Rogue River Valley, and for the
tast few years large quantities of little
xnuskmelons have been shipped by grow
ers at Payette, Idaho. The Rogue River
watermelons are very fine when condi
tions are favorable, but they do not
ripen so early as Is desirable and some
times are hardly In the market before the
cool Fall rains come on and spoil the
sale of them. TVith Rogue River, Pay
ette and Yakima to depend upon for
melons, the Portland market should be
well supplied and at reasonable prices.
'" Oil, xt Gray's Harbor. A Portland
commercial traveler who has returned
Tom the Gray's Harbor country reports
that while going along the coast a short
distance north of the entrance to the
harbor, he came across a gang of men
Betting ready to bore for oil. They were
supplied with a steam engine, augers and
all the necessary plant for boring, and
Harry D. Chapman, of this city, was In
charge of the work. The beach at this
point, for about a mile north and south,
Ss Impregnated with a brownish oily sub
stance, in some places to below the tid'
llne. This oil deposit has been known to
exist there for many years. Springs In
vhe vicinity taste so much of coal oil
that their waters are unfit to drink, and
standing pools of water become covered
with a scum of oil. The excitement pre
vailing all over the Coast has led to the
formation of a company to determine
whether oil exists at this place in pay
ing quantities. A well will be bored to a
depth of 3500 feet or more If necessary
or until oil Is struck, and Mr. Chapman
Is confident that it will not be necessary
to sink that deep.
Jokino Youngsters. Two boys of
about 4 or 5 Summers sat on the curb on
Fourth street a day or two since for
over an hour and hailed every person
whose attention they could attract wlfti:
"Say, mister, there was a hold-up here
this morning." Those addressed usually
smiled and walked on without giving a
second thought to the youngsters. The
boys evidently were getting tired, when
at last a young man came along on a
bicycle. One of the boys Informed him
that there had been a hold-up and he
jumped from his wheel and asked who
had been hld up. The other little boy
yelled, "The track held up a train," and
then the pair started off down the street
whooping, and shouting. "We caught a
sucker." The victim, who had not sus
pected such small boys of such guile, did
not know whether to feel amused or an
sry, "but seeing people grinning at him
he got on his wheel and rode off. The
fondness of these youngsters for joking
will be sure to lead them Into trouble
before they are much older.
Nickels More Plentiful. Nickels are
more plentiful for change since the sup
pression of the slot machines. Street-car
conductors say that when the machines"
were running men passengers seldom
offered a nickel for fare, but now they
6ee plenty of small money. When the
machines were the rage men played
their "chicken feed" for cigars and drinks
and .handed quarters and halves to the
conductors for fares. The regular players
miss the machines, but since they must
try to get something for nothing, the
cigar stores are accommodating them with
dice. In some stores the game is played
with boxes, but in others the dice are
thrown from the hand as In craps. In
slot-machine playing the percentage Is
In favor of the house, but in a fair dice
game the chance is even-up between the
house and the player. In dice, as In the
machine, the great North American priv
ilege remains to the player, If luck Is
against him, of paying 50 cents for a
International Pool Game. Some
buildings, like some men In their time,
play many parts. Down on North Third
street is a large room which is occupied
by a Japanese as a poolhall. Little Japan
ese and American boys "of the same size"
congregate In droves and get along swim
mingly. The pool tables are furnished
with about a bushel of balls, and pockets
to hold them. The players recline at
length while they make difficult shots,
and it Is very amusing to see a lively
game in progress. The walls of the room
are decorated with inscriptions painted In
colors, such as: "The wages of sin is
death '; "How long since you have writ
ten to your mother?" The room was
formerly occupied as a Sailor's Home,
or something of the sort, and the wise
saws painted up for the edification of
the roving sailor are now getting In
their good work on the native-born hood
lums and the wandering refugees of Asia.
REnriLDiNo the Gatzert. The steamer
Bailey Gatzert, from which the machinery
was removed a short time ago, has been
on the ways at the O. R. & N. Co.'s
yard for a week or so, and 25 men are
giving her hull a thorough overhauling.
Every plank or timber that showed sicti
of decay has been removed and replaced
by new ones. New cylinder timbers have
been put in and the frame ha6 been
strengthened. The Gatzert will "be
launched In a day or two, and the
powerful machinery of the Telephone
placed in her, and she will be a stauncher
and 'aster boat than ever before. She
will probably be ready to go on her route
about the middle of March. The question
of building a new hull under the topworks
of the Telephone and placing new machin
ery In her is being considered, but no de
cision has been reached.
South Carolina Exposition. J. F.
Knapp, special commissioner of the
South Carolina Inter-State and West In
dlanpxposition, to be held In Charles
tonecember 1, 1901, to June 1, 1902, left
tor Salem yesterday to Interest the Leg
Irlature In the project of an Oregon ex
hibit. Mr. Knapp says that the railroads
have offered free transportation for ex
hibits from Buffalo to Charleston, so that
the state could exhibit at Charleston
with little additional expense. The ob
ject of the Charleston exposition is to
illustrate the Industrial development of
the South and the possibilities of the
West Indian Islands.
Ed BitaiiAM Seeks Recreation.
Among the sportsmen who left Saturday
afternoon for the happy hunting-grounds
on Columbia Slough, was E. W. Bingham,
who went out in search of more con
genial sport than trying to get a pri
mary election bill through the Legisla
ture. He was armed with a shotgun and
a -ifie and said that the latter was for
shooting hawks and geese, which were out
of range of his shotgun, and wounded
ducks, which fell tout of reach. If the
fowls of the air ever notice how well
he is heeled for them, they will give his
blind a wide berth.
Decisions bt Judge. Judge Sears will
announce decisions In Department No. 2,
State Circuit Court, this morning In the
following cases: Stoermer vs. Weistsr
Company, motion for a new trial; Corn
ish vs. the Portland Club, to make an
swer more certain.
Dental work free, at college, corner
Fifteenth and Couch streets, except a
small fee to cover cost of material .for
those in moderate circumstances.
Poor Duck-Shooting. A large number
of sportsmen went duck-hunting yester
day, notwithstanding they have had no
luck for the past month or more. Some
attribute the poor shooting to the clear,
frosty weather and the moonllcht nluhts.
while others say that the ducks have
gone to the coast. Some who shoot on tli
Columbia bottom say there are plenty of
ducks on the river, but they are "onto"
every blind and n soon as a few shots
are tired in the morning, they go away
to some lOaflng lake to spend the day.
It IS net strange that the ducks, efter
having been shot at every Sunday sines,
they arrived from the North last Fall,
should have found out where the bllndS"
are located, and the hunters are learning
to think the birds know when Sunday
comes around. A man was sent to the
preserves in the middle of the week after
the rains began again, to try his luck.
The ducks began coming In for their feed
early in the morning, but as soon as a
few shot had been fired, they quit com
ing, and no more were seen during the
day. Frank Thorn, who has been the
champion duck-shooter of this section for
years, announces that he has had
enough, and that hereafter he will devote

The Oregon Ofid Fellows' grand lodge will get possession next month of the Riley property, comprising a two-story dwelling and
reven acres of land, located about three btocks eoutb of KenHworth. on the O&tntan road. This property was purchased by six trus
tees appointed by the grand lodge to secure a location for an orphan' home. Portland lodges subscribed $5000, and secured the
institution. Three of the trustees are from the Odd Follows' lodgos and three from the Hebekah lodges. The purchase price wa-i
$0500. The building Is a 10-reom dwelling, and the grounds are convenient to the Woodstock Railway. With a building on thn
grounds, and with ample room, the next grand lodge will be able to establish the home. While It will be a home for the orphans
of Odd Fellows, It will al.'o be a home for homcteps Odd Fellows, and the plan contemplates the building of a hospital. The Itcbckah
lodges have greatly aided in the purchase of the property, and will help to furnish the rooms.

and Moody will have to look out' for their
laurels, for If Thorn fishes as well as he
shoots, he will be a candidate for the
position of champion fisherman.
Postoffice Business C. O. D. Post
office business on the C. O. D. plan has
been tried with success at Quincy, 111.
T. F. Wilcox, Postmaster at that place,
read an able paper on the subject at a
convention of the Postmasters of Illinois.
The system Is a handy one for people
who want small articles, but are not
familiar with the price of them. For ex
ample, a man at Athena orders a piece
of machinery weighing four pounds from
a merchant ot Portland. The Postmaster
at Athena collects the price and remits
to the merchant at Portland. Payment
may be made by money order or regis
tered letter. Postmaster Croasman con
siders the system practicable and says
that if it were generally adopted It would
be beneficial to postoffice business and
commercial interests. Merchandise sent
through the malls Is limited to four
pound packages, but there Is no limit to
the number of packages, while the adop
tion of the plan in Portland would call
for little extra help. Postmaster Croasman
will not apply for It until he has more
room for the transaction of business.
Present quarters are greatly cramped and
application has been made to the de
partment for enlargement of the post
office. Looking for Timber Land. A num
ber of Michigan men who desire to buy
timber claims In Oregon forests have
arrived in Portland within the past few
days and are leaving for various jor
tlons of the state west of the Cascades.
They had long heard of the extent of
the dense forests of fir, sugar pine, cedar,
spruce, etc, where claims could be had at
any time, simply for the asking, and
they have taken advantage of the reduced
rates Westward to satisfy themselves.
Persons informed in regard to standing
timber say that Government lands open
to entry have become very scarce of
late years, owing to the Eastern demand.
The few remote qunrters still open for
entry are known only to professional
cruisers, who charge the settler $30 for
pointing them out Strangers who expect
to locate good claims the moment they
arrive are likely to be disappointed.
Immigration Headed Westward. W.
L. Agnew, of St. Paul, general advertis
ing agent for the Great Northern Rail
way, Is making his first visit to Portland.
He expressed himself as surprised to
find Portland so large a city and Is great
ly Impressed with its handsome homes
and substantial public and business build
ings. He says the tide of immigration
from the East has already turned West
ward, that men of every line of enter
prise are looking to the Northwost for
future fields, and that Oregon will re
ceive a good share of the Investors. "You
have but to present consistent and prac
tical Inducements," said, he, "and Eastern
capital will grasp them. Your mining
enterprises are In their Infancy, and the
next year or two will bring out won
derful develppments. We have many calls
for booklets relating to the mineral
resources of the West."
Zionist Meeting Tonight. Final ar
rangements have been made for the Zion
ist meeting, which will be held at S
o'clock this evening In the vestry-rooms of
Temple Beth Israel. The meeting has
been called In response to about 100 let
ters received by Dr. Wise, expressing the
desire pt the- writers to join a Zionist
organization. Brief addresses will be de
livered by D. Soils 'Cohen and Dr.
Wise. The constitution and by-laws will
be discussed and officers elected. In ad
dition, full dlscuBsion is expectod of the
plans of work for the society. An in
teresting musical programme will be ren
dered, among those taking part being Miss
Rcse Loewenberg, soprano, and Miss
Edna Wasserman, violinist.
Sharp Hail Storm. A brisk hail storm
yesterday afternoon reminded Portlanders
that the first of March was not so very
far off, when its "coming in like a lamb
and going out like a lion" will be dis
cussed by the oldest inhabitant. Weather
conditions continue to be favorable to the
fruitgrowers, if not to Sunday prome
naders, and so those engaged in the pro
duction of apples, peaches and prunes
consider it a perfect season. The con
tinued cool weather keeps the sap from
starting in the trees, and retards the
period of blooming until all danger from
late frosts is past.
Stlvia de Grasse Reef. The work of
removing the Sylvia de Grasse Reef for
the improvement of the channel in front
of Astoria has been delayed by the bad
weather, accidents to the plant, and other
causes, but is now making fair progress.
The work of drilling holes in that portion
of the reef which Is to be blasted out Is
being carried on from a platform sup
ported by spuds. When one hole is com
pleted, the platform is lowered to the
water and floated to the point where the
i.ext hole is to be drilled. The
platform Is then raised upon the
spuds to a suitable height above
the water and the drilling proceeds.
A dredge Is at work excavating the chan
nel outside the reef. The work Is being
poshed as rapidly as possible under the
For Chinese New Year. There was a
great rush of business at the Customs
Appraiser's office and Jn Chinatown Sat
urday. A large quantity of Chinese mer
chandise, provisions and delicacies for
their New Year celebration arrived In the
mprnlng, and there was a great desire tq
get them through the Appraiser's ofllce
and delivered during the day, so that
they could be sold yesterday. The Npw
ODD FELLOWS' ORPHANS' HOME.
Year celebration begins this morning and
no business will be done while It lasts.
Every effort Vas made to accommodate
the Chinese and a lot, but not nearly ail
of the stuff, was examined and delivered
by teamsters to the consignees. If any
one runs short of any of the delicacies so
largely used at New Year, he can prob
ably borrow some to last till business is
resumed. The Chinese Imported a lot of
goods some time ago for the New Year
festival, but owing to some Imaginary
scare about Asiatic cholera, they were all
sent back and the second lot ordered
came near arriving too late.
Fifth-Street Electric Cars. Resi
dents of the southern part of Fifth street,
who have been waiting anxiously for
some time to have the railway extension
on that street put In operation, will be
pleased to learn that the cars may soon
be running. The work of putting in the
connection with the main line at Fifth
and Jefferson streets was commenced
Saturday and will be completed in a short
time. Delay in receiving this "connec
tion," which Is a complication of crossing
frogs, switches, etc.. is the reason why
the extension ha.- not been put in opera
tion. The double track extends from
Fifth and Jefferson streets, down Sher
man, for two or three blocks, and then
changes to a single track. It will be nec
essary to complete laying the tracks to
this point before the road can be operated,
and this will probably necessitate putting
In the crossing In the Southern Pacific
track on Fourth street, which" Is ready
for laying. As the road Is wired, and the
cars are ready for" service. It will not be
long before the extension Js In opera

Oregon G. A. R., Is at the Imperial. He

the good of the old boys. In reference

Dr. McClelland Called. The congre
gation of the Fourth Presbyterian
Church has issued a unanimous call to
Dr. McClelland, who has been acting as
temporary or stated pastor for the past
three months. The committee in charge
of the pastorate, which has been can
vassing South Portland for two weeks, re
ports the financial outlook for the church
as excellent. The pulpit of the Fourth
Presbyterian Church was filled by Dr.
Boyd for nine years, until he was called
last year to the First Presbyterian
Church of Fresno, Cal. The Portland
Presbytery will act this week on Dr. 31c
Clelland's permanent appointment, when,
it is thought, the new pastor will form
ally accept. Dr. McClelland was formerly
stationed at Sitka, Alaska.

CROWDS. SEE SCHLATTER
BEFORE 2500 PEOPLE.
Thirty Sufferer Presented Them
selves on the Stagre Trro
Jumped nnd Danced.
To see sick people made well by faith
healing at a demonstration by Rev.
Charles McLean, otherwise known as
Schlatter, about as strange an audience
as ever filled the Marquam Theater as-
t-sembled there last night, 2500 srong. Thir
ty sufferers presented themselves, and
some said they were healed. Two Jumped
and danced, in their Joy, on the stage.
The theater doors were opened at 7
o'clock, and a crowd which, extended along
the sidewalk nearly to Sixth street strug
gled to get into the building. Men hob-
bllng on crutches, and thin, pale-faced
women were in the throng. A stalwart
man bearing on his shoulders a girl of 14
i.years who lie said,. had been .a cripple
i for years, tried to clear a passage, but
failed. Every seat In the theater was
filled 15 minutes after the doors opened,
and people crowded the aisles.
A temporary stairway, with a railing,
had been built from the floor of the
theater to the stage. On the stage were
five chairs, a table, a basin of water, and
a towel. At 7:35 Schlatter appeared on
the stage, wearing a suit of black. His
luxuriant hair was combed out to Its
fullest length, and he at once delivered
an invocation for aid. the kernel of which
was that without God man Is nothing.
A noisy group In the gallery chattered
audibly, as Schlater read from Mark
xvi:15: "And he said unto them, go ye
unto all the world and preach the gospel
to every creature." Schlatter told the au
dience that he would preach from the
"same old gospel," and that as Jesus
preached the Word and healed the sick, co
would he. "I claim to do nothing my
self," he said. "I simply ask God's bless
ing, and if people believe that God can
heal them, they will be healed. Those
"here are strangers to me. They are your
Schlatter then asked those who wished
to be healed to occupy the front row of
peats, saying that he reserved the right
to reject any whom he thought did not
have faith. Thirty presented themselves,
and he asked each one: "Do you believe
In Jesus Christ, and that he can heal
you?" Answers were given In the affirm
ative, and then Schlatter told the patients,
mostly women, to take off their hats, eye
glasses and gloves. The first one treated
said she was Mrs. Elixabeth Shore, of
Walla Walla, and that she suffered from
spine trouble. Schlatter dipped his hands
In the basin, and, turning to Mrs. Shore,
who was seated with her back to the
audience, placed his hands oa her head,
and prayed lnaudlbly. Then Mrs. Shore
arose, smiling, and Schlatter cried: "The
woman says that the Lord has blessed
and healed her."
Mrs. L. A. Wll?on, Monroe street, and
Mrs. Spalding, Fourth street, were next.
They were sufferers from rheumatism and
lung trouble, respectively. They said that
they had been healed.
John Hull, Fourth street, hobbled to the
stage, leaning on a walking-stick, and
said he was suffering from paralysis.
Three minutes passed, and then he arose,
threw the walking-stick away, and kicked
and danced. He cried: "I'm healed!
Praise the Lord!"
Mrs. Palmer, Park avenue and Burnslde
street complained of heart trouble, and
she feebly sat down on the chair. Sud
denly she jumped up, and cried: "Glory
to God! I'm healed!" Then, by actual
count, she jumped 20 times.
Twenty-five more were treated, and
Schlatter said he would stop for the
night. Sick people Insisted that he should
"heal" them, but he prayed, and left the
Sunday Cloning- for Barber Discom
moded Their Guest.
Hotel men are not in love with the bar
bers' Sunday closing law, which went into
effect yesterday, as It discommoded many
of their guests who had been accustomed
to a Sunday morning shave. Two guests
of the Hotel Portland, who arrived Sat
urday night from Spokane, intending to
spend two days in the city, were so dis
appointed at finding the barber shops
closed that they left for San Francisco.
One was Frank Smith, a well-known resi
dent of Spokane, and the other a cap
italist from New York City.
A landlord discussing the experiment
yesterday said: "This Sunday closing
law for barbers Is an outrage. What can
a man do who leaves San Francisco Fri
day and arrives here Sunday with two
days' beard? If this ridiculous law is
enforced, Portland will be put down
by the traveling public as a Jay town."
Chinese -Robbed of SHjrar Cane.
A large crowd of boys and men congre
gated on Second street yesterday after
noon evidently expecting" to sec some of
the preparations for or perhaps opening
ceremonies of the Chinese New Year.
The Chinese were selling goods and some
Chinese were carrying home stalks of
sugar cane. For want of. any better
amusement apparently, mobs of half
grown boys followed the men who had
sugar caoe and in several instances
pounced on them and took the canes
riwnv frnm thfm. Thk -was pvldentlv enn-
vlrtchrarf a vtrv fiinnv n tiA frrnvrl I
whooped and yelled and chased from one
place to another as different Chinamen
were attacked and robbed. Some of the
men attacked showed fight but their as
sailants were 100 to 1 and they stood no
show. The Chinese generally affected to
laugh at the "uproar, and the boys were
only having fun of a rather rude sort
Promote!!, of the Portland Team to
A meeting of the promoters of the Port
land professional baseball team has been
called for this evening at the Commercial
Club, when an effort will be made to In
fuse new life into the project. In the
opinion of J. J. McCloskey, the Louis
ville baseball man, who is representing
Tacoma in the proposed league, enough
stock has been subscribed in Portland
to warrant going ahead with the organi
zation of the team and the league. In an
interview yesterday he said:
"I have met a number of prominent
Portland business men, who say they are
desirous of having the city represented in
the league. This Is the largest city In the
proposed circuit, and there Is no doubt In
my mind that league ball would pay well
here. In 1S0O-91. when Vanderbeck had an
Interest In the Portland franchise In the
Pacific Northwest League, the games were
well patronized, and Vanderbeck and his
associates received big dividends on their
Investment The success of 1S90-91 can
be duplicated this year. Portland Is larger
now than in 1SS0 by CO.OQO people, busi
ness Is as good now as It was then, and
there Is a great deal of enthusiasm mani
fested In the National game. An effort
has been made here to raise J5CO0 for the
purpose of securing a league franchise
and supporting a first-class team. I am
told that $2000 has been subscribed. That
amount is "almost sufficient to start on.
I do not see the necessity of raising 55O0O
when $2300, I think. Is plenty to start
with. There is enough money subscribed
to warrant Portland securing a fran
chise and going ahead with arrangements
for the coming season.
"What is necessary now Is to put up
the cash forfeit guarantee of $500, and $40
for protection under the National agree
ment Tacoma has raised $2500, and Is
ready to put up the $500 forfeit Seattle
and Spokane, I am advised, are ready
to put up their guarantees any time on
demand. Portland has sufficient money In
sight, and should be willing to post the
forfeit and protection money at once.
There is no sense In hustling for more sub
scriptions until we know positively that
Spokane and Seattle will post their for
"Tacoma has been ready for a week to
put up the forfeit and protection money.
We can raise nil the money we need In
Tacoma for the support of the club after
the forfeit guarantees have been put up.
As soon as all the forfeit guarantees are
up the public will know that the clubs
mean business, and every one will have
confidence and take more Interest In the
league project The thing for the Port
land baseball promoters to do Is to put
up the $500 cash forfeit and send a rep
resentative to the league meeting, which
will be held In Tacoma Thursday even
ing." IN NEED OF REPAIRS.
Asphalt Pavement nt Foot of Mor
rison Street Broken.
Some one place a stake in a miniature
pond at the foot of Morrison street yes
terday and tied a decoy duck to It to
call the attention of the city authorities
to the condition of the asphalt pavement
at tha point A number of small boys
congregated on the corner and amused
themselves by pelting the wooden duck
with sticks and stones. That portion of
Morrison street has been badly out of
repair for many months, and as It Is at
tho approach to the Morrison-street
bridge, the traffic of teams, street-cars
and bicycles Is constant and enormous.
Under the present charter, repairs are
not made to streets unless the major
ity of the abutting properfy-owners pe
tition therefor. Keeping an asphalt pave
ment In repair on a prominent thorough
fare Is somewhat expensive, and so no
one Is anxious to take the lead In the
matter. When a street has once been
put In good condition, all the teams In
that portion of town are attracted and
thus thp street Is oon damaged.
