Confusing to Passengers. Hundreds
of people stop to admire the splendid and
complicated railway crossing being put In
at the intersection of Third and Morrison
streets by the City & Suburban Railway
Company. It is pronounced by judges by
xar the Mnest bit of railroad work in the
city, and strictly flr,t class. The neces
sity for passengers transferring past this
crossing causes some amusing incidents.
People who forget about the break in the
track will wait at the corner of Wash
ington or Alder for a car, and then get
out and walk by the break. The car they
get Into starts eouth. but turns up Yam
hill street, and many attempt to get out,
thinking they have got on the wrong car.
In a moment the car runs back and tunw
down Third again, and then the nervous
ones are cprtain something is wrong. As
soon as the car is on the right track it
starts south again, and a holy calm set
tles down on the passengers. It will not
be many days now till the cars are run
ning over the new crossing and every
thing will be lovely.
California Butter Competes. Califor
nia is now finding a market for many of
lier products here, owing to the earlier
season in that state. The product the
competition of which with home produc
ers is most keenly felt is butter. Grass
Is good in the pastures of Marin and
other dairying counties now, and Califor
nia creamery butter is selling here for
45 cents per roll retail, while the best
Oregon creamery butter sells for CO cents.
The price will probably have to be re
duced to meet California rates, which
means a loss to Oregon dairymen. In a
few months Oregon pastures will be at
their best, and California pastures will
be brown and dry, and perhaps Oregon
dairymen may then be able to return th
compliment. The California butter ap
pears to be all right, but an old Callfor
nlan resident here says It lacks the aroma
Marin County butter used to possess years
ago, when the pastures were covered
with wild flowers, which perfumed the
milk and butter.
Bots' Club "With Password. Two
East Side boys named Ralph Biblehauser
and John Hughes were before Municipal
Judge Cameron yesterday, charged with
breaking windows in F. Slieve's house.
The boys laughed and talked In court and
appeared to look on their arrest as a joke.
They denied that they had broken any
windows, and that they were members of
the social organization known as the
"Multnomah Gang." In giving evidence,
the boys contradicted themselves several
times. "I have Inquired Into this Multno
mah boys' organization." said Judg2
Cameron, "and the Information before me
is that you two boys are members of it.
You meet in a barn, have a password
and flourish toy revolvers. You have
treated this court with contempt, and I
do not believe one word of the lying evi
dence you gave on the witness-stand. You
are flned 510 each." The boys, still grin
ning, said they could not pay the fine,
and they went to jail.
Committee to Welcome Investors. It
has been suggested to business men that
Portland would be benefited if it had a
permanent general committee to visit the
leading hotels at night and acquaint
strangers who come here seeking invest
ments with the resources of the state
and methods for the profitable employ
ment o? capital. It is likely that the sug
gestion will be taken up jointly by the
Chamber of Commerce, the Board of
Trade and the Manufacturers' Associa
tion. The Idea Is to have a large com
mittee, to be divided into subcommittees,
which will have regular nights for visit
ing the hotels. Just now Oregon is get
ting very little advertising In the East,
and Intending investors have no means
of finding out what the state can do, out
side or the Ideas they are at liberty to
draw from the permanent exhibit at 246
Improving Park Blocks. The Park
Commission is desirous of getting the
work of improving the park blocks inau
gurated, and the City Engineer has called
the attention of the C6uncll to the very
bad condition of the sidewalks around
these park blocks. He suggests that if
it is not expendlent to repair all these
sidewalks at once that those in front of
blocks S, 9 and 10, between Main and Co
lumbia streets, be improved by construct
ing artificial stone curbs around them, and
artificial stone walks six feet wide on
streets running east and west, and
by removing the wooden sidewalks
running north and south, and send
ing the old planks to the crematory.
It is understood that if these Improve
ments are made the Park Commission will
improve the walks rjfaning diagonally
across the blocks In qdlstlon.
"Wht Thet Held Up Their Hands. A
number of people stopped at the corner
of Third and "Washington streets yester
day to stare at a vehicle coming up Third
street, in which were four men holding up
their arms In constrained positions, with
out any apparent cause. There was no
bad highwayman or hold-up man in sight
to account for the positions of the men.
and the spectators continued to wonder
till the vehicle was abreast of them, when
it was seen that the men were holding up
a large sheet of plate glass, on Its way
to be placed In one of the several glass
fronts being put in buildings on Wash
Will Organize Today. The Port of
Portland Commission will meet In its of

noon, to perfect permanent organization.
Owing to the failure of the river and har
bor appropriation, the commission will be
compelled this year to do Its own channel
deepening and the work which the Gov
ernment was expected to do. The com
mission will therefore begin work without
delay, as it has a busy season before It.

High School Class Election. The
election of officers for the February class
of the Portland High School took place
yesterday afternoon In the assembly hall.
There was a large attendance, &nd much
Interest was shown In the election. The
clasg Is composed of about 6 members,
about two-thirds of whom are young
women. For several weeks a d?termlnd
campaign has been carried on by te.
young women for the election of one of
their number for president, as they felt
that as they made up the greater por
tion of the class they were entitled to
the honor of the -presidency. The young
men also worked for one of their number.
When It came to election, Miss AUa Mas?
tlck nominated Miss Margaret O'Connor
In an eloquent speech. In which she spoki
of the em'nent qualities of the candidate
for the offlce and urged that she be elect
ed by a handsome majority. Curtis Sar
gent nominated George M. Stcadman for
the ofllce. The young women were confi
dent that their candidate would be elected
and so she would, had they stuck togeth
er but when it came to balloting, more
than half of them voted for Mr. Stead
man, and he was elected. The other offi
cers are. Alia Mastlck. vice-president;

Imported Vegetables. The commission-house
section of Front street was a
busy place yesterday forenoon. The Cali
fornia steamer's cargo of "fresh" vege
tables -was being distributed, and although
some of them were not so fresh as they
might be, there was a general scramble
for them, and the street was so crowded
with trucks and wagons that navigation
was practically suspended. Green peas,
beans, new beets and passable asparagus,
with radishes, lettuce, endive, etc, were
the principal attractions. Every vege
table dealer on the street had a big pile
of crates of celery, the foliage of which
looked as If It had been withered and
blighted In a fiery furnace. It had come
all the way from Southern California by
rail, and the best of It looked "rocky."
All the dealers had been caught, so no
one had any complaint to make. Celery
cannot be produced here at this season,
but Oregon gardeners ought to have
enough by and by to render it unneces
sary to Import stale celery from the ends
of the earth.
No Chance for Business Men. James
Wakeley, a Portland boy, now a Sergeant
of Company M. Forty-fifth Infantry.
United States Volunteers, writes from
Yudan. In the Philippines, to a friend
here, thanking him for papers sent, which
he says have helped him to pass away
many a weary' hour. In answer to an in
quiry, he says: "The chances here at
present for a business man are very poor,

The libellants left the ship while lying Mi
Portland, and have no money nor no
means of furnishing security for costs.
United States Marshal Houser arrested
the ship yesterday morning Just as the
tug was about to take her down the river.
Is She on Her Journet? Interested
persons are wondering what has become
of the lightship Columbia, which Is sup
posed to be in course of removal from
the beach near McKenzle's Head Into
Baker's Bay. It is some time since a
large force of men, an extensive plant
and nine horses were shipped over to the
lightship, and a day or two after reports
reached this city to the effect that she
had been gotten into a cradle and it waa
on rollers and the lightship had been
moved 30 feet, and then 50 feet. etc. It
begins to look as It she was still In1 the
bed where she has lain for about a year.
Lighthouse Inspector Day was to have
been notified of the lightship daily as soon
as she was started, but he has received
no report from her yet. Yesterday It was
reported here that the contractors were
still considering how they could best move
the craft. It Is to be hoped that they will
get her afloat soon.
Robbers in a Church. Robbers and
policemen tried their best to discover eah

First Congregation! Church, but the rob

liceman Welch first noticed that robbers
were In the church building. He tele
phoned for relnforcemenLs. But while
the police were massing for an attack
from the northern side of the church, the
robbers escaped by means of a door on
the opposite side and walked away In
the darkness. Nothing of any value was
Hand Burned. H. C. Jones, an assist
ant In a North Third-street drug store,
was severely burned on the hand yester
day by a jar of crystallized phosphorus
exploding as he was moving It from a
shelf. The cork blew out like a bullet,
and the phosphorus, taking fire, burned
the back of his hand before he could
throw the jar to the floor. The burned
cuticle will be slow to heal, as the flames
were poisonous. t

VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA
GENERAL BALLIXGTOX BOOTH
MAKES AX ADDRESS.
Commander Tell What tfee Nevr
Movement Han Accomplished in
the Past Three Yean.
Surrounded by the members of the
army of workers of which he Is the pre
siding officer, and by well wishers also.
General Balllngton Booth, commander of
the Volunteers of America, spoke last
evening at the Taylor-Street Methodist
Episcopal Church to a large audience, on
philanthropy as connected with Christian
ity, and the mission and work of the
Volunteers. Several times during his ad
dress did General Booth refer to the old
movement, as he calls the Salvation
Army. Once it was to speak of his
mother, and again when he spoke of the
estrangement from his father and some of
his brothers and sisters. And as he men
tioned this latter incident the General's
voice rang with determination while ho
declared that if necessary he would take
the same step again.
General Booth Is a sympathetic speaker.
His whole power enters Into his subject,
and he carries his audience with him. He
is accompanied on this trip by Lieutenant
Colonel Keppel. of Philadelphia, who has
charge of the Volunteer work on the At
lantic seaboard, and Lieutenant-Colonel
Duncan of San Francisco, In charge of
the Pacific Coast. The latter lends the
singing, and has proved an acquisition to
General Booth in his visits along the Pa
"There Is a very small church on a hill
side In one of the most beautiful sections
of Switzerland," said General Booth, In
his opening remarks. "In which the serv
ices are well attended, but more especially
by night. There Is a peculiarity connect
ed with this church. There are no lights,
but each person brings with him to church
an unllghted taper. The pastor has one
which Is lighted, and his congregation
light their candles from his. We are told
tho scene Is most picturesque. When the
service Is over the candles are blown out
nnd the people wend their way home In
order and silence.
"There is a great deal of worship like
that today, so far as the light Is con
cerned. Pcoplo go home from church and
their light Is seen no more. With the
closing of the exercises there Is simulta
neously the shutting oft of the( rays.
What is the good of light If It Is not seen?
What Is the use of salt if It has lost Its
savor? Therefore it Is that I hall with
joy any movements like that of the Vol
unteers of America, whether It be philan
thropic or otherwise. Whenever I see
these workers, in the lowest parts or the
high-toned avenues, letting their light
shine, my heart goes out to them.
"I confess, were It not that I have seen
men and women brought up from the
lowest depths and made better citizens, I
would be tempted to throw off my uni
form and go back to seek an easier life.
It Is a source of joy that, even though
It means privation, we find those whom
our churches cannot reach.
"The Volunteers of America would not
be a movement to command my sympathy
were It merely a humane movement; but
it Is divine. When 1 see philanthropy
hand in hand with Christianity, then I
know it means something. I know you
can have philanthropy without Chris
tianity, but not Christianity without phil
anthropy. We have some wonderful in
stances, even outside the Bible, of what
kindness has done. Coming down to our
own times, my mother, Caroline Booth,
ever the power behind the old movement,
while driving through the streets of Shef
field, with, my father, said to him. as
stones were being cast at them: 'William,
let us not blame the people; let us pray
"When I last stood on the platform In
Portland you well remember I called at
tention to the fact that the Volunteer
movement was only two years old. On
March 9 this organization will be five
years old. During the last nine months
1,113,683 were present at the CO.000 Sunday
and week-night meetings within our Vol
unteer halls. Over 1,700,000 persons were
attracted to the 11,532 open-air services.
This is an annual aggregate attendance of
3,796,426 persons. We arc sending out our
paper to thousands of persons. This
movement, which we had no conception
would grow so fast. Is now a National
"You will remember I eald we wanted
to attract a better class than attracted
by the old movement. And I want to
say here tho Volunteers are not an off
shoot of the Salvation Army. Today I
can announce that we have done what we
desired. We have attracted the laboring
or factory classes. Theie are the people
we are seeking and are securing."
After giving an Illustration of the mar
velous way In which a man was saved,
who had been sent to state's prison in
Pennsylvania, the speaker said: I have
been called a backslider, a renegade and
everything else that could be applied to
a man. I have been Isolated from my
family and for five years have received
not a letter from my father or my eight
brothers and 6lstcrs, save one; but, thank
God, I am not a backslider, and there Is
no dust on my Bible."
"The kind of phllanthrophy we need is
what I call the present tense. Its easy
enough to write treatises on all subjects,
but what we need are men and women,
who will go among those unreached. If
the volunteers had done no more than
open homes for convicts, supply restaur
ants, organize homes for homeless girls,
they have done a work, which calls for
the sympathy for all people.
"What have the Volunteers done for
the prisoners? There Is scarcely a peni
tentiary which has not been visited by
the wave of the movement Inaugurated
by Maud Balllngton Booth. I have shak
en hands with men who have told me

that no other Influences could have
changed them. The Volunteers go to the
prisons and don't wait for the prison
ers to come to them. I am glad of that.
I've been In prison for Christ's sake, and
I was once a sailor, although I don't like
the water. When I was going abroad I
would spell Europe and on my return I
would spell New York. I was In such a
hurry to have It oven. Now all I want Is
to stay In America. I sailed to England
before I realized what a great country
this is and what great institutions we
have. America Is my country now.
"I want to give God all the glory and all
the honor. I know this young movement
has large prospects and possibilities."
Lieutenant-Colonel Keppel was then
called upon to make a few remarks and
the meeting closed. The General and his
party will be In Tacoma tonight and
tomorrow night In Seattle. After that
they will leave for the East.
Lieutenant-Colonel Keppel addressed a
meeting In the afternoon at the Volun
