THE MORNING OREGONIAN, THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 1901.
CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
CORDRAYS THEATER "The Village Par
son." METROPOLITAN TliEATER "Held by the
Grosbeaks rx Large Numbers. A
stranger In the city, passing down Sixth
street yesterday morning, noticed a flock
of birds flying from he trees to the
ground In search of food. Their beauty
and tameness attracted his attention, and
he Inquired what they were. He was told
that they were grosbeaks, which from the
description he gave of them they evidently
were, and he was further told that the
birds were Imported. He sent a note to
The Oregonlan to let It be known that
these birds are here In numbers. The
evening grosbeak is a native of this coun
try, has its habitat In the mountains, and
has visited this city, as well as other
towns in the Willamette Valley, for many
years whenever there Is a hard Winter in
the mountains. It has been stated that
these birds were introduced here from
Australia, but this is an error. The fact
of their arrival In the city was pub
lished several months ago, and scores of
Items in regard to them have been pub
lished in The Oregonlan during the past
20 years. They did not visit the city dur
ing the Winter of 1S99-00. but the preced
ing Winter large numbers of them came
in, and when there "was snow on the
ground here, hemp seed, etc, was spread
under the trees In the Postofflce grounds
by some kind-hearted women. The num
ber seems to be larger every successive
year they come. In a short time they will
be off to the mountains, and will be seen
here no more until there comes another
hard Winter in their haunts.
Latest Dead Beat. Schlfller, the latest
globetrotter freak who Is beating his way
around the world, called at the City Hall
yesterday to have the city seal attached
to his "clearance" papers. It Is said that
he asks nobody for anything, and that
what he pays is "nothing to nobody."
While waiting, to be "sealed," and sur
rounded by a number of admirers, who
appeared to look upon him as a sort of
hero, a bystander asked him bluntly
what useful purpose was to be served by
his encircling the globe in the role of a
dead beat. It was further remarked that
there were enough tramps beating their
way around through the world, without
him adding himself to the list, and that
It would be more to his credit to be at
work making an honest living for himself.
It was -evident from his looks that he
had nevor before had his bumming ad
venture placed before him In that light,
and he may see the truth of the state
ment before he gets back to High Ger
many. He appears to have started on his
excursion - without any county scrip or
any staff, and If he imagines he is obey
ing the scriptural injunction, he should
have left his wheel at home, and might
better have stayed there himself. The
day for making curios of glorified dead
beats is past.
FoNERAii or Rolph H. Miller. A very
beautiful and impressive funeral service
was held In the Unitarian Church yester
day afternoon over the remains of the
late Rolph H. Miller. Dr. Eliot read the
passage from the 22d chapter of Genesis,
in which Jacob wrestles with the angel,
commenting upon It and drawing a paral
lel between It and the struggles of human
life In general, Its strcnuousness, its high
ambitions, and -blessing at the end. He
concluded with .a few words of personal
application to the life of him In memory
of whom the congregation had assombled.
Dr. Eliot was assisted by the Rev. Mr.
Lord and by Dr. Edgar P. Hill, of the
First Presbyterian Church. Lilies of the
valley, Easter lilies, callas, roses and vio
lets added their share to the beauty of
the service. At its conclusion the remains
were taken to Lone Fir cemetery and
placed in the receiving vault, where the
final solemn words were spoken. The
pallbearers were the Board of Education
R. K. Warren, Richard Williams, H. Wit
tenberg, D. P. Thompson -and J. V. Beach
and Secretary Stone, of the T. M. C. A,
At the completion of the crematory the
body will be Incinerated, in accord with
the request of the late Mr. Miller.
Vert Bust Court. United States Cir
cuit Judge W. B. Gilbert arrived home
yesterday morning from San Francisco,
where he has been sitting In the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals for the
past two months. The session was the
longest the court has yet held, and at
least a third more business was transact-J
ed than during any previous session. A
considerable number of cases came in
from Hawaii and from Nome, and cases
will soon be coming in from the Philip
pines, which are in .this district. There is
enough business on hand now to keep the
court running continuously. The court
has taken an intermission of six weeks,
and Judge Gilbert brought home with him
a pile of briefs and records four feet
high to prevent his "leisure" from hang
ing too heavily on his hands, and will
prepare a number of decisions to take
back with him.
Started on the Jourxet. F. W.
Fletcher returned from Ilwaco yesterday,
after bringing 10 men down from Portland
to assist In raising lightship No. 50, which
is aground on the beach near there. He
said the contractor hopes to have the ves
sel high out of the sands within a few
days, as supporting timbers can be made
to rest on the bedrock, only eight feet
below the surface. The craft has been
dragged a distance of 60 feet by the aid
of horsepower capstans, and the men are
now able to work in the dry sand most of
the time. When once up on the track pre
pared for her the work of moving her to
Baker s Bay, three-quarters of a mile dis
tant, can be accomplished In 15 days.
Those in charge of the work feel confident
of being able to launch the vessel into
the deep, still waters of Baker's Bay
within the specified time Aprils.
Casip McMillan, No. 1. The sons and
daughters of the Indian 'War veterans of
Camp McMillan, No. 1, held a meeting
and social at the G. A R. Hall Tuesday
evening, and the time was spent pleas
antly. Miss Gillette favored the veterans
with a recitation. Mildred Glover sang a
solo. Mr. and Mrs. Glover gave a duet.
Captain Hogue entertained the audience
with "some thrilling accounts of his com
pany's experiences when after redskins.
The camp will meet again on the 2Sth of
the month. A cordial invitation is ex
tended to all sons and daughters to at
tend these gatherings.
New Factory Here. The large store
room at the northwest corner of Second
and Salmon streets has been leased to
Messrs. Dubruille and Wilson, of Albany,
and Is being renovated and fitted up for
them. They are wholesale manufacturers
of buggy and carriage tops, cushions, etc.,
and have been in business at Albany for
some time, but increase of their business
has rendered It necessary for them to
seek a more central location and better
transportation facilities to all parts of the
Elks' Stag Social. Portland Lodge of
Elks will hold a stag social in its lodge
room, in the Marquam building, tonight.
It will be the biggest event of the kind
the lodge has given for a long time. Up
ward of 400 Invitations have been Issued to
other than lodge members, who number
over 500. H. D. Griffin will be the presid

Will "Practice Law." The city offi
cials, who imagined that Mr. Gaston
would call for that $300 warrant which
has been waiting for him so long to pay
the award of damages for opening Main
street through the Gaston tract, or that
a little thing like an adverse decision of
the Supreme Court could turn him from
his purpose, reckoned without their host.
Mr. Gaston called at the City Treasurer's
office yesterday, but he was accompanied
by a lawyer, and the warrant mentioned
was one of the things he did not want.
He said when he got a warrant to pay
damages for opening Main street through
the Gaston tract he wanted one for about
$6000. He merely called at the Treasurer's
office to Inquire when the last assess
ments had been paid on the award for
damages. He Intimated that he had some
kind of a surprise in store for the city,
and was preparing to give his opponents
another run for their money. Mr. Gaston
may not be a "fellow of Infinite Jest,"
but when It comes down to litigation he
is a man of infinite resources and untir
ing patience, and appears to derive lots
of amusement from the "practice of law."
Likes Oregon and Portland. H. B.
Carroll, superintendent of the South St.
Paul stockyards, who came West as a
delegate to the woolgrowers convention at
Bendleton, and has been visiting friends
in Portland since that meeting, left last
night to return home. Mrs. Carroll ac
companied him. Mr. Carroll was very
much pleased with the outlook on the
Pacific Coast. He says It Is the plr.-e for
young men and for middle-aged ."n of
means. He met in Oregon many ineepmen
with whom he had had business relations.
He was greatly pleased with the livestock
conditions in this state; they were a sur
prise to him. He says the sheepmen of
Oregon have a great advantage over those
of other regions, and can breed and raise
sheep and send them to market In Chi
cago at a greater profit than can those
who must feed high In the cold weather
of the Middle East. Mr. Carroll was
much Impressed with Portland, and ex
pressed the conviction that It would be the
city of the Coani. He Is enthusiastic over
this country and the courtesy and kind
ness of the people, and he will be a valu
able missionary for Oregon.
Notable Coming Event. Just after
Easter namely, on April 10. 11 and 12
Portland Is to have a short series of re
ligious meetings, in which Rev. B. Fay
Mills will speak. On the occasion of this
noted man's last appearance In the city,
several years ago, he was considered the
greatest of living evangelists. His mar
velous meetings were held all over the
United States through a period of many
years. Then his convictions slowly . but
steadily changed as to the devotional
basis and methods and nature of salva
tion. While here Mr. Mills will describe
this change and what seem to him now
the essential truths and greater methods
In which God appeals to man and co-operates
with him. These sermons are to
be given In the Unitarian Church, and
will doubtless be listened to by hundreds
who remember the revivals which Mr.
Scoundrels Shooting Robins. Game
Warden Qulmby has been Informed that
bad boys and men are shooting robins in
the vicinity of this city. Of course, they
must be boys and men from this city, for
country boys would not be guilty of such
a mean action. Mr. Qulmby has consult
ed with the Chief of Police, and they will
take action In the matter and endeavor to
secure the arrest of any person guilty of
shooting robins or other song birds. The
law for the protection of song birds Is still
In force, and Mr. Qulmby Is going to do
all In his power to enforce It. It seems
almost Impossible that any one brought up
In a civilized country would be guilty of
shooting the pretty robins or larks, but
there Is a class of vile men here who
used to make a practice of It before the
birds were protected.
Attempting the Impossible. R. Buetl
kofer writes to The Oregonlan to say
that the one-armed man mentioned in a
paragraph yesterday as falling In a fit
while carrying wood upsta'.rs on Morrison
street Is a deserving man. His name Is
Fletcher, and he lost his right arm about
a year ago. He Is too proud to accept
charity, and Is 'trying to prove that he
can make a living with only one arm.
He is a sober, industrious man, and has
been subject to fainting fits for years.
As Mr Buetlkofer says, "he Is simply at
tempting the Impossible." Some way
should be found to assist him In making a
living In some other way than by carry
Unusual Raini-all. Deputy United
States Marshal Roberts, who has lately
