Amusements Tonight.

Faith in Potato Crops. Farmers are
bringing in potatoes freely since the fine
weather arrived, and seem to have used
rood judgment in holding them back dur
ing the stormy -weather, as they now get
an increase of 5 to 10 cents per bushel,
a.nd the hauling Is much less difficult.
Some have an idea"that there Is not likely
;o be so great a demand for Oregon pota
toes in California next Fall and Winter
t usual, as there -were some rains in Cal
ifornia during the Winter. Others are in
tending to plant on as large a scale as
Ever, as from the fact that there "has
been but small demand from California
for Oregon seed potatoes, it Is not likely
that a very large area is being planted
to potatoes in that state. There are as
good Burbank potatoes as ever -were
raised to be fpund in the market her$
now, hut many farmers have let their
potatoes run down and become hollow
hearted, rough and black spotted, on ac
count of not changing seed or planting
tdb long on the same fields. There are
a. number of new varieties of potatoes for
sale by seedsmen always, and many or
ders for these are filled by mail, the pota
toes "being cut into small sets', one "eye"
on each. Perhaps something better than
the Burbank, "which has been the favorite
for years, may be found.
Most Lamentable IaNORANCE.--Among
the recent additions to the exhibits in the
City Museum is a big round shot, weigh
ing along up toward 100 pounds, which
L. L. Hawkins picked up on some battle
field or other place. It Is labeled "Agul
naldo's taw." It may not seem possible
that a man could be found in the United
States, that is a native, who has never
played a game of marbles, but Just such
a benighted individual appeared in the
museum yesterday and stood for some
time looking at the huge Iron sphere.
Presently a' better informed man came
up, and after looking at the ball and the
label, remarked that Aguinaldo must have
a big thumb to use that taw. Then the
other man asked what a taw was. He
said he had heard of people being
"brought to taw," and he supposed Agui
naldo was now in that fix, whatever it
was. The educated man then proceeded
to explain all about the game of marbles,
what a taw was and -what alleys were
and what was meant by "pickings and
clearings," "knuckle down inch bone"
and fudging, and the line or mark -from
which a game of marbles is begun, which
Is also called a taw, and the heretofore
Ignorant man went away with his head

Its way to the Supreme Court on appeal
by the City Attorney before the men are
reinstated. John F. Logan, the attorney
for the four men, called at police head
quarters Tuesday, and notified Chief Mc
Lauchlan that they were ready to go to
ork, but .as the Police Commissioners
as a body, must handle such matters,
no definite reply was given by the Chief.
Yesterday this official was informed that
Waller, one of the men, was suffering
from rheumatism, and so could not patrol
his beat, but desired to take advantage
of the sick benefit fund. As Waller had
not been on the force for 10 months, this
demand created a laugh at the station.
There is little hope for the men being put
back unless the Supreme Court sustains
the decision of Judges Sears and Cleland.
Looks Like Trout Weather. The fine
weather will soon put trout In the humor
for rising to the fly, and then trout fish
ing will commence In earnest. There has
been a demand all along for salmon roe
lor bait to be -used In fishing for salmon
trout in "tide water," and as no salmon
were allowed to be caught here, supplies
of roe have been obtained from Aberdeen,
Wash. Salmon xoe Is -a deadly bait, and
it Is hardly fair to use- It4n fishing for
brook trout, but as salmon trout live and
thrive by following up the salmon and
devouring their spawn in the spawning
beds, it is all right for them. There is
much complaint about the clause of the
fish and game law forbidding the sale of
the destructive salmon trout, the killing
of "which, it is alleged, should be encour

been found out exactly how the water
got into the steamer Mascot to sink her,
but it is thought that "something was
left open." As she went down close to
two dolphins, It is not so easy to get
barges alongside to raise her, as it oth
erwise would be, but Mr. Kamm will have
her afloat now,, by hook or by crook. The
cabin furniture has been removed to a
dry place, but the wetting It got did not
do any particular damage, as it had been
there before. Mr. Kamm, who realizes
that he made a mistake in naming the
Mascot, has been advised to change her
name to Hoodoo, and see if it won't bring
her a change of luck.
Dangerous Practice. Chief of Pqlice
McLauchlan said yesterday that he had
instructed the patrolmen to keep a sharp
lookout for violation of the street ordi
nances by contractors. "Numerous cases
have been reported tto me lately of viola
tions by contractors of the city street
ordinances by burning piles of old side
walks in the streets. This is frequently
done, and the nails left in the street, so
that, as a result, many valuable horses
have been injured by getting them In
their hoofs. There is a heavy fine against
burning debris in the streets, and the first
offender c$ugh$ Trill be arrested and tried
in the Municipal 'Court."'

One Industrx Neglected. There are
any number of gardeners in the outskirts
of the city and neighboring country who
make a living by raising vegetables for
the market, but none of them has under
taken to cultivate hothouse lettuce or cu
cumbers. The boxes of fresh lettuce seen
In the market came from Washougal,
where a man has a number of hothouses,
from which he ships to this city about 30
large boxes of lettuce dally, for which he
finds a ready market at remunerative
prices. The cucumbers now in the mar
ket come from California, but soon the
market will be supplied from Washougal
and the Puget Sound country. Just why
these articles are not raised In or near
this city Instead of being brought from-a
distance Is a conundrum.
Penalty Is Waiting. Yesterday being
the last day of grace allowed for paying
licenses and water rates, there was a
procession of citizens passing through the
City Treasurer's office to the License Offi
cer's desk, and another through the Wa
ter Works office. One woman was heard
to say as she passed out of the Water
Works office that she hated to pay the wa
ter bill because she had to wait so long.

general thing, do not have to wait to get

"The Little Minister" at the Marquam

ord of this much-talked-of play Is one to
be proud of. Three hundred nights In
New York to audiences that packed the
theater to the doors at every performance
Is a record that -will stand for a long time.
Since the play left Ne.w York, the busi
ness has been marvelous, Immense audi
ences have greeted It everywhere. Charles
Frohman, with his usual liberality, "has
given it, we are told, a splendid cast, and
produces it in a manner that leaves noth
ing to be desired.
The Elleford Company at Cordray's.
The Elleford Company, which is headed
by Jessie Norton, and which plays an
engagement of one week at Cordray's The
ater, opening Sunday evening, April 14,
has .broken records for attendance In
many of the principal cities of California,
Colorado, Nevada and Arizona, during
Its tour this season. This is what the
Jbxesno Democrat says of their business
In Fresno, Cal.:
"Never before has the Barton had a
run like the one that took place last
week, the" attraction being the Elleford
Company, -which occupied the boards every
night. While there have been many pre
vious nights that have run well up, there
has never been a week that could com
pare with the last In the record of at
tendance. In the evenings alone there
were present over 10,000 people, and at the
Saturday matinee there were In attend
ance 648, which should really be added to
the week, making it 10,740. The average
for the evenings alone was a little over
1441. It Is a record of which Manager
Barton and all connected with the Elle
ford Company should feel proud."

dray's Theater, the bill will be "The
American Girl," with specialties and fun
galore. The same attraction on Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and
Saturday matinee.

The suit of George C. Sears against
William Frazler for the emoluments and
salary of the office of Sheriff, covering the
period since Mr. Frazler assumed the
duties of the office, was submitted yester
day before Judges Cleland, Frazer and
Sears. The ground qf the complaint is
that William Frazler was npt a citizen
when he became Sheriff. Mr. Sears,
therefore, claims that his successor was
never duly elected pr. qualiUed. ,
Sheriff Frazler was born In Scotland.
He came to the United States with his
parents when he was 7 years old, and
soon afterward came to Portland, where
he has resided ever since. While he was
a miuor his father died, and was not a
citizen at the time of his death. Mr.
Frazler not having taken out citizenship
papers prior to his election as Sheriff, it
is contended that he was not a citizen
when he assumed the duties of the office.
But Mr. Frazler avers mat bubsequent to
the demise of his father, his mother mar
ried again, and that her second husband
was a citizen. This act, according to the
laws of the United States, invested her
and her children with the rights of citi
zenship. .
The question of tho citizenship of Sheriff
Frazler was raised after one term had
elapsed, and, to make the matter doubly
certain, Mr. Frazler, on May 27, 1S9S, took
out citizenship papers, in the State Circuit
Court. The attorney.for Mr. Sears, how
ever, alleges that this does not cover the
189S term, for the reason that, according
to law, he must have been an elector six
months prior to the beginning of the
William T. Mulr, as attorney for Mr.
Sears, argued that Sheriff Frazler, by his
act in taking put citizenship papers, was
estopped in asserting any rights of citi
zenship before that time. He' said that,
according to this record, Mr. Frazler had i
sworn that before he applied for natural
ization papers, he was a subject of the
Queen of Great Britain; that It had been
his bona fide intention for more than two
years to become a citizen, etc. The rec
ord, counsel said, could not be attacked
In a collateral proceeding. ,
John Hall, attorney fbr Sheriff Frazier,
i made a long argument in response, and
submitted numerous authorities. Mr. Hall
explained that Mr. Frazler made a mis
take in obtaining naturalization papers
He took them out under a misapprehen
sion, and never required any. Counsel
went over the ground of estoppel very
thoroughly, and in conclusion said: "Np-'
body ought to be estopped from asserting
truth or the exercise of a just demand, un
less by some "wrong he Shall injure an
other person." Mr. Hall said this was
the rule laid down by the Supreme. Court
of the United States.
Judge Frazer That Is the principle laid
down'Ih our statute. ' -
Resuming, counsel said: "No one shall
be denied from setting up the" 4truth un
less It is in direct contradiction with his
former acts. Mr. Sears, when he stepped
out of the Sheriff's office, was no more
entitled to that office than any other per
son. His bondsmen w ere exonerated, and
he was not responsible for anything that
occurred there. If there was a vacancy
it was the duty of the County Commis
sioners to fill it. If the emoluments do
not belong to Mr. Frazler, It lies between
him and Multnomah County. Mr". Sears
went voluntarily out of office, and threw
off the cloak 'of office; notwithstanding he
says 1 amentitled to the emoulments
of the office, For what reason ?" There
was a de facto officer. If Mr. Frazier was
not qualified, Mr. Sears could only remain
In the office until the County Commis
sioners filled it. He should have held on
and filed his bonds."
Mr. Mulr, answering the argument,
said if a man had no right to an office,
he had no right to the emoluments. A de
facto officer would be entitled to deduct
his actual expenses, and no more. Spars
did not know the facts when he surren
dered the office; he thought Frazier was
entitled to it. He turned It over under a
misapprehension of facts. Counsel as
serted that the 'only question was the de
cree of the court malting Frazler a citizen
on May 27, 1S9S. The attorney argued
that they could not go behind the record
and he read a number of authorities on
the point, also saying that the opposing
counsel had produced none to the con
trary. The court called attention to the fact
that since the registration law went into
effect, a number of old citizens who had
lost their papers and so on were natural
ized over again, and questioned if such
records must stand for what they pur
ported to show, that the parties were not
citizens previously, and that they could
not dispute the record if necessary.
Mr. Mulr said they couiq rt do so, but
thought there might be a proceeding to
cancel the record. The court called at
tention to the case of City Treasurer
Hacheney, who was unable to produce his
father's citizenship papers, but finally
succeeded in finding them. If he had been
unsuccessful, his right to the office might
have been disputed.
Mr. Mulr continued his argument at
some length that the record could not be
attached In a collateral proceeding.
Mr. Hall answered that the citizenship
papers issued to Mr. Frazler did nof
change his status any, and he had a right
to show previous citizenship. Counsel
said a man's mouth could not be forever
closed because of a mistake. "Suppose,"
said he, "a man was away seven years
and was adjudicated to be dead, and he
came back, could he be estopped from
saying he was alive, or his friends from
recognizing him as such?"
The original complaint filed in this case
was thrown out of court because It only
alleged that Mr. Frazler was not a citizen,
the court holding that a man only re
quired to be an elector to be Sheriff. The
complaint was amended to the effect that
Frazler was neither a citizen nor an
There Will Be 100 More Dogs at This
Tear's Show Than Last Year.
The entries for the forthcoming bench
show of the Portland Kennel Club closed
at 12 o'clock last night. The number
of entries is gratifying in every respect
to the club, as the number of dogs to be

dred more than were exhibited last year.
Last year the entries at the bench show
were so numerous, especially of the sport

i8th of last month, as many Portland ladies well know. We've had spe
cial sales of trimmed hats at $2.95, $3.95 and $5 95. all of which were re
markable values, but we don't think we have ever equaled the offering for
this Thursday's selling many of which appear to be worth double the
price asked.
Every hat we offer at $4 95 is new and never shown before no two
alike, and no copies made unless requested to do so by the purchaser of
the original. t
Extra peoplehave been added to our special order department to pre
vent the possibility of any disappointment on account of our rapidly in
creasing business.
