MULTNOMAH LADIES' NIGHp ALLEN & GILBERT CO. They Become tlie Successors of the Wiley B. Allen Co. In the States of Oregon, Washington, Idalio, Montana and Wyoming. Beginning today, the new firm of Allen & Gilbert Co. assume active control of the old-established music house of the Wiley B. Allen Co., at 209-211 First street, in this city. Mr. F. N. Gilbert, who has for several jears past been the cashier of the First National Bank of Moscow, has severed his connection with that In. stitution, so as to give his Individual care and attention to the large and ex tensive piano and organ trade to which the new firm has fallen heir through the purchase of the Wiley B. Allen Co.'s good will and various agencies. Not only will Allen & Gilbert Co. carry all the high grade pianos forinerly represented by the Wiley B. Allen Co , but will add several others to the list, notably the "Packard" and ,ihe "Everett," two of the choicest products of the world. Mr. Gilbert will surround himself with whole-souled, broad-minded, experienced salesmen, who will never stoop so low as to speak disparagingly of a competitor or keep on hand an "armory" in the vault with which to do what is known among the trade as "dirty work." It will be the policy of the new firm to always keep the best makes of pianos possible to se cure, and to always cater to the best trade and to treat all piano customers with the utmost care and consideration, never making a misrepresentation or re-' sorting to tactics unfair and misleading. Mr. George W. Kennedy will be on the floor with Mr. H. G. Reed two gentlemen who probably, as "piano salesmen," have no equal on this Coast. "Portland's leading music store," It A LARGE MUSIC ESTABLISHMENT. SYMPHONY CONCERT. Interesting Programme Prepared for Tomorrow Night. The Symphony Orchestra will give its last concert of the season tomorrow even ing at the Marquam. A highly interest ing programme has been prepared for the occasion, and there Is every reason to expect that the usual large and fash ionable audience will be present, since the orchestra has made Itself exceedingly noDular among Portland music-lovers. The novelties of the evening's programme will be the Moszkowskl march ("Inaugura tion") for orchestra, and the 'cello con certo played by Mr. Konrad. Little Palo ma and Karla Scnramm will also appear.- a feature that Is sure to be received with great favor by the audience. The second Beethoven symphony will be the heavy number of the evening. This It will be remembered, shows Beethoven In the normal condition of a man at peace with himself and the world, happy in his art, and not yet stirred to his very soul by the sorrows of life. The sec ond movement (larghetto) In particular Is one of the loveliest slow movements Beethoven ever wrote, and is a special favorite In the concert-room, while the finale shows a healthy exuberant spirit of fun that cannot fail to leave the audi ence In a cood humor. In addition to these programme num bers there will be a Tschalkowsky an dante, repeated by request CATHEDRAL CLASS LECTURE Alexander Thompson Described a Trip From Constantinople. A large audience at the Cathedral class lecture, at the First Presbyterian Church, last evening, was taken on a charming "Summer's Jaunt From Constantinople" by the aid of a pretty collection of etere optlcon views and the delightful lecture of Alexander Thompson.

Match and Gymnastic Events. "And just to think that T saw a really, truly wrestling- match," said a young woman leaving the ladies' night enter tainment at the Multnomah Club last evening. There were others of the feminine ele ment in the crowd of spectators that filled the bleachers and gallery of the gymnasi um of the clubhouse almost to suffoca tion, to whom the novelty of a wrestling exhibitionheretofore exclusively enjoyed by the men of the club appealed most strongly, and It is safe to eay this event was the most novel and interesting on the programme. The bouts were between Bert Nielsen and Dick Price for a gold medal and the best two out of three. Price won the contest In one of the best exhibitions that the club has seen. Nieleen was much out of condition, but threw Price in the first bout by.a flying fall, from a half- b nelson hold, in 15 seconds after the men stepped on the mat In the second bout, the men wrestled for five minutes before a fall was secured, and the changing for tunes of the two athletes were greeted by enthusiastic cheers, to which the presence of the guests of the club lent a peculiar shrillness. "O-o-oh. the little man wins' called out an enthusiastic member of the ladies' annex, as Price threw his opponent on his back, after whirling him In the air witu a crotch hold. The last and deciding bout was won by Price also, who threw Nielsen in a flying fall, that took only 25 seconds to execute. The sprightly music of the orchestra accompanying the gymnastic programme made the evening pass off quickly and enjoyably. Under the direction of Phys ical Instructor Robert Krohn the juniors were put through a neat drill on the ap paratus work, five classes performing sim ultaneously. The Juniors also went through a novel pole drll, and gave a good exhibition of dumb-bell work. One of the most Interesting jiumbera Was the drill of the junior girls, led by Miss Buck enmeyer, who made their debut in a series of evolutions to the accompaniment of music. Tne gymnastic exhibition was completed by leaping on the springboard and over the long horse, by the members of the senior class, whose agility in the difficult work reminded the observer of the feats of circus performers. James Duff did a clever1 juggling turn, worthy of a professional performer, and the same is true of the tumbling exhi bition of Messrs. Rjman and Wetzler. The Multnomah Mandolin Club, under the direction of H. A. Webber, made its debut in two entrancing numbers, "The High wayman" and "The Rounders," which were warmly applauded. The evening closed by a clever exhibition of baton swinging, by A. H. Rebe. The entertainment was in charge of the following committees: Indoor athletics, Frank E. Watklns, chairman; J. V. Zan, H. Greenland and Arthur Bowman; recep tion committee, J. V. Zan, M. H. White house, C. D. Lewis, Frank Dekum and George Dekum. PERSONAL MENTION. C. E.

It 13 the judgment of the provisional committee which Is laying the foundation for the Lewis and Clark Centennial and American-Pacific Exposition that Presi dent McKlnley should break ground at the City Park or some other point In Portland If the site for the fair cannot be selected before the President's visit. There Is some opposition to this plan on the ground that the ceremony would be symbolical and that it would mislead the President. At the meeting of the commit tee yesterday afternoon, C. J. Owen pre siding in the absence of Chairman Long, the opinion was general that the Presi dent should break ground. Mr. Owen, Dan McAllen, A. H. Devers and others said it would make no difference wherp the ceremony would take place so long as it was in the City of Portland. On mo tion of Mr. McAllen, the committee put Itself on record In favor of having ground broken, and Mr. Owen and City Attorney Long were appointed to make the neces sary arrangements with the reception committee. Chairman Long, who is going to Wash ington on business before the Supreme Court, offered, if authorized, to confer with the railroads in the Interest of the exposition, and to ask Secretary Hay, of the State Department, to bring the fair to the notice of foreign governments. The committee gladly authorized Mr. Long to take such action as he thinks Is proper. PIANO RECITAL LAST SYMPHOHY CONCERT.
