ration in the County Clerk's office, the In
corporators being Hy J. Eilers. Adolph
H. Eilers and Samuel J. McCormick. The
capital stock of 5250.000 Is divided among

tofore operated In partnership. The llrm
will continue ite large and growing busi
ness in this city, and It plans before
many years to erect a piano factory in
the City of Portland, and the step will be
tatyen as soon as justified by the trade
here. Hy J. Eilers says that there IS
plenty of material here In the Northwest,
owing to the many native woods, and that
a large piano factory would, keep In Ore
gon a good deal of money that now goes
to Eastern States. A good piano factory
In Portland would supply the entire Pa
cific Northwest with instruments, and
would be of lasting benefit to the Indus
trial interests of the community.
Some lawters Object. License Officer
McEachern was out yesterday after per
sons who have not paid their licenses.
"While a large number of lawyers have
paid their licenses promptly. It Is found
that a considerable number of members of
the profession have failed and neglected
to do so, and some of them protefot against
paying, and some even hint at contesting
the ordinance. If others would only em
ploy them to contest the law, that would
be business; but there is not much busi
ness In conducting a lawsuit against the
city to endeavor to escape paying a tri
fling license, unless one has more time
than money. The city authorities are or
opinion that more prompt and energetic
action in the matter of collecting the li
censes would secure better results.
Bots Fight and Are itf Jail. When
two messenger bo36, named Frank Evans
and August Wlckman, were brought yes
terday before Municipal Judge Cameron,
charged with fighting at Third and Stark
s'reets, they both said: "Guilty, sir' Po
liceman Sloan testified: "I found these
boys having a fist fight on Third 6treet,
and there was a crowd looking on. We
are having trouble with these messenger
boys all the time. Only the other day
some of them stretched a rope across the
sidewalk where they are employed on
Stark street, to trip up Chinamen. They
seemed to think it was great fun." The
boys were each fined 510, and In default
of th money they were locked up.
Herring in the Columbia. Heretofore
Portland has depended upon the Sound
and Alaska for its supply of herring, but
this year large schools have been found
Inside the Columbia River and Just out
side, and fishermen are making large
catches. Whether because of changing
climatic conditions or for some other rea
son fish which previously had never, been
known to be caught south of the Sound
have appeared In the Columbia during the
past season, particularly varieties of sal
znon that were supposed to head directly
from the open sea to the Straits of Fuca.
The herring are being shipped in large
numbers to Portland and other Oregon
Fined 55 Because Barber Pole Fell
Down. "Tearing down a barber's pole
from a sidewalk" was the specific charge
entered against Louis Larsen yesterday,
at the Municipal Court. The evidence by
Policeman Wllklnoon was to the effect
that Larsen had pulled down a barber's
pole early Wednesday morning at Second
and Yamhill streets, and had placed it
across the road for somebody to fall over
It. 'Tin 'a janftfcr1 til an office build
ing," explained .Larsen. "I was out drink
ing, and I fell against the barber's pole,
and It fell down. I did not pull It down."
Judge Cameron looked perplexed at this
view of the matter, but he fined Larsen 55.

Christmas Greens on Display. The
display of Christmas greenery bids fair
to be much larger this year than usual.
Several wagons were stationed about the
streets yesterday, some, loaded with mis
tletoe, others with Oregon grape and
ferns, which were finding ready sale. Tne
florists appear to have cornered tho sup
ply of holly, which Is not large. In
scores of windows bunches of Oregon
grape leaves, ferns, cedar boughs, and
occasionally holly and mistletoe, are ex
hibited, and on many fruit stands piles
of oranges are decorated with wreaths of
greeners'. Wagons loaded with Christmas
trees are to be seen in many parts of the
city, and some dealers have piles of them
In store. The farmers who have brought
In mistletoe appear to have placed a
rather extravagant value on It, which Is
not conducive to rapid sale. However,
they are enjoying the holiday sights and
are in no hurry to leave. They say that
gathering mistletoe Is hard work, that
tho plant will soon be exterminated, and
that they want to make money while the
Historical Society Tomorrow. On to
morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock the third
annual meeting of the Oregon Historical
Society will be held in the parlors of the
First Congregational Church, corner ot
Park and Madison streets. After trans
acting the necessary business a paper by
one of the ablest Journalists of the state,
D. W. Craig, a pioneer of 1853, will be
read. It may be remembered that the
movement towards properly celebrating
the Lewis and Clark Centennial, the pros
pects for which are now so hopeful, had
Its origin at the last annual meeting ot
this body, and a very large part of the
splendid subscription already made Is by
members of that society. For several
months past the assistant secretary of the
society has been in correspondence with
members of Congress, with the view tl
getting the Government to Issue the Lew
Is and Clark Journal complete In large
numbers, as an executive document, so
that it may have a wide circulation, prac
tically without cost.
Schools Close Till January 2. The
telephone wires connected with the vari
ous public schools were kept hot for a
while yesterday, when the various princi
pals were being officially notified that the
schools will close this afternoon and will
remain closed till January 2. This allows
the pupils a vacation of 12 days, including
Sundays, which Is longer than usual for
the holiday recess. The pupil teachers
will not take their usual lesson In peda
gogy today, which will increase the plea
sure of their vacation. The principals
were also notified that the Salvation
Army has been granted permission to so
licit contributions from the schools for
their fund for providing a Christmas din
ner for the poor. Something over 11.1M0
school children will be swelling the

Sound Piling After 25 Years. A two
story frame building at the foot of Mor
rison street, belonging to the Meier es
tate, has been raised IS Inches by the aid
of Jackscrewo, and new timbers are be
ing set In place of the piling, which has
shown unmistakable signs of decay. Ex
amination proved that the piling below
tho water's edge was perfectly sound, al
though they were driven 25 years ago.
Where they showed signs of rotting was
between the water and the caps which
support the floor timbers of the build
ing, and as this was in the dark, dank
shade, the condition wax considered very
favorable for rapid decay. The workmen
at the scene think the Oregon fir has done
remarkably well under the circumstances.
Planting Trout in Necanicum. The

which the trout are secured for the pur
pose of planting.

THE GREATEST RAILROAD.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is beyond
question the greatest railway in the world.
Aside from this fact there are a .great
many advantages connected with this
great system that Is of more or less in
terest to every one, especially the travel
ing public. The advantages offered by
the several routes available are worth
The unexcelled sleeping-car service,
scenery the grandest in the world, and
the courteous treatment extended by Its
employes, earn for It the reputation which
it has so long maintained of being the
"Popular Route." The scenery along
the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway
Is beyond description, and the time card
is arranged so as to pass the scenic feat
ures during the daytime. The local repre
sentatives of this hne take considerable
pride in explaining the advantages of the
different routes offered by the only road on
the American continent that has its own
tracks from ocean to ocean. This com
pany operates tourist cars and standard
sleepers from the Coast to St. Paul, To
ronto, Monroal and Boston, and It would
be to the advantage of any one contem
plating a trip to the East to Investigate
the Inducements offered by this route. The
