Tangible fihape was yesterday given the

According to the notice published yes
terday morning, a meeting was held at
the ofSce of the Chamber of Commerce,
24G "Washington street, at 3 P. M. Mr.
Scott presided and explained the status
of the movement for a monument to the
volunteers of the Spanish-American "War.
He said a fund of about 514.000 had been
made, up by private contributions, most
of which "was In ails hands. Last Winter
It had "been thought best to have the
legislature appropriate enough to make
the total for the purpose $20,000. but that
1)111 had failed of passage, chiefly because
of the efforts of some of the zealous mem
bers to engraft upon the monument a re
cital of all the deeds of valor since white
men came to this country, though this
monument was to be for the special pur
pose of commemorating the heroism of the
volunteers, in the war against Spain.
"Whether it should be best to proceed
with the money in hand to erect the mon
ument, or to wait tor another Legislature
io make an appropriation, he was not cer
tain. Mr. Scott said he was not Wiling
to go ahead alone, or even upon consulta
tion with a few, to carry out the wishes
of the subscribers to the fund; therefor
he had called this meeting. His own Idea
was that a monument should be erected
on some design to be selected and that
the names of the gallant young soldiers
who fell in their country' service should
!be inscribed thereon. If the matter be
3eft to sleep until the Legislature shall
meet again, the Impression Is likely to
get abroad that we are neglecting It;
therefore, Mr. Scott said, he was In favor
of forming a committee to ak for and
consider designs for the monument, esti
mates of cost, etc., In fact, a committee
to take charge of the funds raised and
the entire monument projectf
Colonel Jackson asked whether consid
eration had been given the respective
merits of stone and bronze for the mon
ument. Mr. Scott replied that that mat
ter had not been discussed, and It was
one of the things to be determined by the
committee having In charge the monu
ment project. Colonel Jackson said he
had noticed in front of the City Hall in
San Francisco a fine bronze monument
to the soldiers of the Civil "War. and he
thought something like that would be ap
propriate hexe, and that It might be erect
ed on a marble base for $14,000 to $15,000.
On motion of General Summers, Chair
man Scott, Colonel Jackson and Mayor
Howe were appointed a committee tq
select 12 others, to act with themselves
as a committee of 15, to take charge of
the fund and all arrangements for the
Dr. Josephl raised the question as to
the propriety of determining at once
-whether the committee should wait for
a Legislative appropriation or proceed to
erect the monument with the money on
hand. Colonel Jackson moved that the
committee proceed with the money on
hand, but on motion of General Ganten
hein this question was also referred to
the general committee, with power to act.
The meeting adjourned and the commit
tee at once met and selected to constitute 9

He Thinks Only Successful Experi
ence Should Be Reported.
PORTLAND, Jan. 6. (To the Editor.)
Is it now to be the policy of your paper
to seek out and advertise the failures In
any -branch of Industry? Do you know of
any business in which there have been
no failures? Do you think you will assist
in establlsliing industries in Oregon by
dilating upon failures, no matter how well
Intentioned they may be?
These questions are occasioned by your
exploitation of the failure of Mr. Gorham
and his associates to succeed as well as
they expected in the poultry business.
Suppose he has been disappointed; it is
apparent that his failure, is absolutely
without significance so far as establish
ing the industry is concerned, for he
went into it without any knowledge of the
business, "he was not Intimately connected
with it at any stage not with the prac
tical woric and leaves it without having
acquired any special knowledge except
that returns have not been what he ex
pected. All this time he has been en
gaged in railroad business, of which he
doubtless knows much. A year or so
ago no man in Oregon was so enthusiastic
for the poultry industry. No one
of sound judgment expected his
hopes would be realized fully.
Mr. Gorham runs to extremes. He is ex
travagantly enthusiastic or extravagantly
depressed. Your paper gave temperate
voice to his enthusiasm, as was proper.
But now you do not temper his depressed
mood, but apparently take joy in setting
it forth in all its gloom. Of course, you
do not say "it us pleasure to record
this failure," but you take pains to go at
great length into his woes the woes of
a man who was merely a speculator, an
adventurer, in the poultry business.
If Mr. Gorham. were an experienced
poultry man, so something of warning or
information could be deduced from his
poultry experience, disastrous though It
had been, there might be some point in
exploiting his failure. But as it is, you
.have simply selected a failure that Is ab
solutely without significance and given it
the effect of a club to knock legitimate
attempts . to. establish an industry for
which Oregon appears to be specially suit
ed. When a farmer or a lumberman or
a stockman or a miner falls, do you has
ten to "write him up" and give the Im
pression that the country is no good for
those industries? Of course not. because
failures can always be found, failures in
any branch of life's work. And It is not
only useless and pointless to take up a
failure by an inexperienced man and ex
ploit it as if it were of great conse
quence, but It Is positively misleading
and harmful to do so.
I write this in the hope that it may in
some way serve to palliate the Injury
done by exploiting a chance case where
inexperience (not to say ignorance) reaped
the harvest that should reasonably have
been expected the injury that comes from
exploiting such a case as a typical one.
Our new industries need encouragement,
not discouragement, and the whole effect
of the Gorham poultry article was to dis
courage attempts at commercial poultry
raising, and on totally insufficient basis.
We think The Oregonlan need offer no
apology for printing a report of the ex
periment made by Mr. Gorham and oth
ers in the poultry business, even though
the venture did not turn out successfully.
It Is, we will Inform our critic, the policy
of The Oregonlan, as fc is of all newspa
pers intelligently and honestly conduct
ed, to deal candidly with the public, and
It never suppresses the report of any
matter of Interest because it would have
been better pleased with some other event.
It is, we think, very important as related
to the Industrial development of Oregon,
that the results of experiments like that
of Mr. Gorham failures as well as suc
cessesshould be given to the public In
any large or common-sense view it is aE
Important to know what cannot be done
as it is to know what can be done.
The difficulty with the writer of the let
ter printed above is that he has not read
attentively, or at least has not under
stood what was said In the Interview
which so excites him. Mr. Gorham said
nothing against the poultry business; on
the other hand, his whoje attitude to
ward the subject exhibited a lively and
sympathetic Interest In It. He has had
some experience in It such experience
as entitles a man to definite opinions and
to the privilege of declaring them. He
does not believe that success In the poul
try Isdustry is for the commercial exploit
er, but, on the other hand, that It is for
the farmer and the farmer's family, who
have no feed bill and no labor bill to
pay. And The Oregonlan for one does not
believe that any Injustice or Injury has
been done to the poultry business by the
setting forth of these views with a re-
port of the very interesting experience out t
of which they were developed. It be
lieves, Indeed, that a really important
service has been done. Certainly no good
can come to any Industry or to Oregon
through suppression of essential facts in
relation to It, even though such facts
may not he of a kind to flatter extrava
gant hopes.
Bonrd of Public Works Malces De
ductions When They Go Ont.
At a fully attended meeting of the
Board of Public Works yesterday after
noon, the electric light question received
a great deal of attention. Henry W.
Goode, general manager of the Portland
General Electric Company, was present,
and gave such information as the board
required. He also said that so far as
lights not reported out by the police are
concerned, any citizen who may lose him
self in the darknes3 may report the fact
to the general office. A man will be there
to receive complaints, and a special force
of men will be there until midnight fo
make any reported repairs. After mid
night a man will be kept in the office to
receive complaints.
As telephones are not always convenient
to people who are overtaken by the shades
of night. It Is suggested that they tell
their troubles to a policeman.
The report of the special light inspec
tor, appointed by the city, showed what
lights were out. These will be deducted
from the electric light company's bill.
The annual estimates of the several de
partments were received. The estimate
of the Street Cleaning and Sprinkling De
partment was J53.809 78 for labor, material
and new equipment, and the garbage cre
matory $4429. The report of City Engineer
Chase was not in complete shape, and that
official could not make an estimate. A
part of his report was approved. Two 10
ton steam rollers, designed for use on
gravel and macadam streets, were recom
mended. The recommendations for an in
crease of salaries is in abeyance.
The board will probably again take up
the estimates before it submits them to
the City Council.
Expressions of Sympathy Upon Loss
of Tvro Members.
The regular monthly meeting of the La
dles' Relief Society, which was held yes
terday afternoon at the First Presbyterian
Church, brought forth many expressions
of bereavement and tender recollection oc
casioned by the death of two members
since the society held its December meet
ing. Mrs. Hans Thlelsen, one of the mem
bers who passed away, had been con
nected with the organization for the long
period of 25 years, during which time she
had been an active worker, whose influ
ence had been, a potent factor for good in
the society. She had been a member of
the advisory board about 20 years, and a
valued member of the purchasing com.
mlttee. During the past year or two her
age and feeble health did not prevent her
from attending meeUngs as often as it
was possible for her to do so. Her spirit
of unselfish labor and usefulness along
the special philanthropic lines to which
the members have devoted themselves
greatly endeared her to her associates,.
and her taking away from the group of
earnest women with whom she has
worked for a quarter of a century, Js
deeply felt.
Mrs Kenneth A. J. Mackenzie, the other
member whose death hns been chronicled
in the annals of the Relief Society dur
ing the past month, had been a memner
of the organization for seven years. There
were many expressions of regret upon
her sudden passing away.

Teacher and.Anthor, and Dravra
Lessons Therefrom.
Professor Joseph Schafer, who has the
chair of history at the University of Ore
gon, very kindly substituted, at short no
tice, last night, for Professor Young, who
was to have lectured on "Public Finance"
before the Economic League, but was pre
vented from doing so by Illness. The lec
ture was given in the chapel of the Uni
tarian Church, and was the eighth In the
series of 19 planned by the league for the
present season a series that contains
many of the soundest thinkers as well as
the most brilliant theorists of the country
on the economic problems of the day. The
present lecture departed slightly from the
lines laid down for study by. the league,
the subject being "Carlyle as Historian."
Professor Schafer has had the chair of
history at the university since a year ago
last Fall, coming to the state from the
University of Wisconsin. There he en
joyed exceptional opportunities, owing to
the store of riches gathered together in a
library famous for its historical litera
ture relating to the West, as well as
Americana in a more general sense of the
term. He has done considerable work
along lines of original Investigation In
American history, and Is now busy upon a
study of the "System of Land Grants In
Education Anterior to 1787," which Is soon
to be Issued by the University of Wiscon
sin in bulletin form. This Is his first ap
pearance on the lecture platform before
a Portland audience.
The lecturer first sketched briefly the
influences of Carlyle's early life, both as
to heredity and environment, emphasizing
particularly the debt he owed his father,
whose aggressive personality, picturesque
diction, exaggerated style, rigid veracity
and lucidity of thought he inherited. In
tended for the ministry, but selecting and
abandoning the profession of law, he be
came at last what Professor Schafer very
aptly calls a "political critic and ro
mancer." His preparation for his life
work was not received In any hali of
learning, for the University of Edinburgh,
where he was enrolled as a student from
1S03 to 1814, offered no inducements to
historical research. After much valuable
yet, after all, incidental writing along
historical, literary and philosophic lines,
he began his great work, the French Rev
olution, at a time when" his career had
reached Its lowest point, apparently. He
had finished "Sartor Resartus," which
produced limb by limb in Fraser's Mag-
m&k C

azlne, had come near swamping the mag
azine a complete failure. About this
time he remarked bitterly, "It id now
three and Twenty months since I have
earned one penny by literature. If liter
ature refuses me, both stomach and the
wherewithal to digest, then the way is
clear." Carlyle, grateful to Emerson for
his aid in obtaining better financial re
turns than he had dared hope for, sent
the first 5 he received from his publish
ers to his widowed mother, with the
message, "The kitllng sends the old cat
an American mouse."
"No man "has a right to cut himself off
enUrely from his own generation," he
said, and "Chartism" and similar pamph
lets were the result of this thought.
About this time he turned his attention
to Cromwell, the soul of the Puritan
RcvohiUon, for, whereas Pym, Hampden
and others had been canonized, the mem
ory of Cromwell remained yet on the gib
bet. He was the inarticulate prophet,
who could not speak, but could only act
out his opinions; therefore the world re
fused to believe him, and cursed him. To
1 Carlyle truth wag the one thing essential
to greatness, and he believed he recog
saw that the only way was to let Crom
well tell his own story, which he did, col
lecting from far and near his letters and
memorabilia. The work had an immedi
ate and great success.
Turning to Frederick the Great, which
is Carlyle's noblest work, real kingship
was portrayed In distinction to sham
kingship, which had occupied his thoughts
in writing the French Revolution. When
it was completed in 1S&4 it was at once
recognized as his masterpiece.
Carlyle's essential characteristic as his
torian was that he made history didactic
The lesson that be aimed to teach was
that the world is so constituted that sham
and mendacity cannot stand in conflict
with truth.
Coanty Conrt Will Take Up Matter
o Number and Territory.
Unless all the territory In Multnomah
County on the west side of the river Is
Included In the Portland Justice Court dis
trict, another Justice of the Peace will
have to be provided for on the west side
of the river at the coming election. At
present there are three Justice Courts
one at Troutdale, one In East Portland
and one In Portland and the territory of
each district Is defined by an order of the
County Court entered In the January
The Portland district comprises all of
the -city limits on the west side of the
river; the East Portland district takes
in all of the city which Is located on the
east side; and the district of the Trout
dale Justice comprises all of the terri
tory In the county outside of the limits
of the City of Portland. This was a con
venient arrangement at the time the dis
tricts were thus divided, as it was pos
sible for any resident of the county to
bring an action in any of the Justice
Courts. While the outside district was
made up of the whole body of the county,
the general understanding was that only
persons living near Troutdale would
bring cases In that court, and that peo
ple residing on the West Side would take
their business to the West Side court,
But to annoy and harass persons, cer
tain persons filed suits before the coun
try Justice and dragged people from the
city out to this court. The attention of
members of the bar was called to the
matter, and a meeting was held at which
the practice of the concern was denounced.
To put a stop to It, the following act, ap.
pllcable only to Justice Courts In this
county, was presented to the Legislature
and passed:
"No acUon shall be commenced except
in the precinct or district where the de
fendant resides or may be found."
Under the present arrangement of Jus
tice Court districts the effect of this law,
although not so Intended, Is that a per-

yesterday, while on a visit to rela
tives there, was an Olympla woman,
and the organizer of the flrst wom
an's club in the Northwest, and was
a representative at the National
Federation several times. She was
well known In Oregon and Wash
ington. Mrs. Stuart was a woman
of largo business experience and
general acquaintance in this sec
tion. In the early '70s the terri
torial Legislature recognized her
ability and appointed her chairman
of an immigration commitslon, that
aided greatly In adding to the pop
ulation of "Washington. Her hus
band. Robert G. Stuart, was 12

land or other points on the West Side
beyond the city limits, who desires to
sue a neighbor, can do so only In the
Troutdale court, as all of the outside part
of the county is in one district.
To correct this blunder the Portland
district will have to be extended so as to
take in all of the territory on the West
Side, or else a new district created out
side of the city limits on the West Side.
The former plan is the most feasible.
Some Ume ago it was. suggested that
one Justice of the Peace could do all of
the work for the entire county in this
line, and that such a reduction would
save money for the taxpayers. If this was
done, the Justice would, of course, have
Jurisdiction over the whole county.
The County Court this month decides
how many Justice Courts there shall be,
and Is authorized by statute to do so.

As Sooa as AIM a a Plant Is Turned
Over to Pmblle Ownership, De
mands Will Be Made.
Residents in Piedmont, Woodlawn and
surroundings, now supplied with water by
the local plants, will be asking the city
for Bull Run water very soon after the
water, committee shall have taken over
the Alblna plant. At Woodlawn and Pied
mont private plants are in operation.
They supply very good water, but the
rates have necessarily been a little high
er than those charged In the city, in or
der to maintain the plants. The water
supplied, while excellent, is not Bull Run
water, and this is what the people want.
Secretary J. B. Easter, of the Push Club
of "Woodlawn. estimates that between 71X)
and S00 consumers are supplied by the
private plants, all of whom are anxious
to secure Bull Run water. For a time, at
least, the pipes of tbse systems could
be connected up with the Alblna system
and water supplied in that way, but the
mains are too small to furnish an ade
quate supply. Eventually larger mains
will have to be extended to "Woodlawn
and Piedmont. The problem will be to get
water to that high ground. At the high
est point at Highland, on Union avenue,
it is about eight feet higher than the
lower reservoir at Mount Tabor. North
of Highland, however, there Is a steady
grade downward. At "Woodlawn the sur
face Is very much lower than the lower
Mount Tabor reservoir. A member of the
water committee says that these small
plants will be taken care of later, and
Bull Run water supplied the districts they
now cover.
Manager Koehler Says It Would Be
Impracticable on the East Side.
There has been inquiry as to what dis
position has been made with the request
for the establishment of a station on the
East Side for checking baggage and for
handling local freight. It may be said
that J. E. Hunt and Joseph Buchtel, of
the committee on transportation, present
ed the matter to Manager Koehler, of the
Southern Pacific Railway Company, and
received a hearing. They did not succeed
In their mission, as the following letter
from Manager Koehler explains:
In response- to the suggestions made by your
self and members of your committee. I beg
to say. after having given due and careful
consideration to the matters Involved, that it
will be Impracticable to establish another

Carrier Is Rapidly Learning Homes
of Residents.
By shortening the route to be covered
by the carrier of the Mount Tabor free
delivery district somewhat, he Is able to
get around fairly well. All the territory
north of what would be East Burnsldc
street If extended, has been cut from the
free deliver limits and left to be served
as heretofore, by the center posofflce.
This materially reduces the route, and
even with this reduction the carrier has
to hustle to get around. He will soon be
supplied with a horse and cart.
At Mount Tabor conditions are very dif
ferent from those In the city. The houses
are not numbered. There are only a few
cross streets. Few of the residents have
mall boxes put at their homes. It Is sug
gested that it would facilitate the work
of the carrier If ample mall boxes were
put up at all the residences, with names
on themv The carrier, with the aid of
well-known residents, has been compelled
to hunt out and locate the people In their
homes. This takes time. Postmaster Bru
baker said yesterday that very soon every
thing will be working smoothly, and that
the people at Mount Tabor will soon ex
perience the convenience of having their
mall delivered at their homes promptly
every day, rain or sunshine, without hav
ing to send to the postofllce after It.
Two Organizations Are Now Meeting:
In the Drill Hall.
N. H. Maxwell is doing good work
among the boys of Alblna at the big
drill hall, which he built at an expense of
over ?2000 on Beech street. Since It was
completed a company of 40 boys has been
organized In Multnomah Addition. The
company comes together every Friday
evening for drill purpose. After each drill
a game of basket-ball Is played. The
boys have entered the work with enthusi
asm. They no longer spend their time on
the street at night. They go to the hall.
Mr. Maxwell has had a great deal of ex
perience with boys. He likes boys, and
delights to afford them facilities for
bringing out the best there Is in them.
Tuesday evenings a company of 20 boys
of Lower Alblna. organzed a long time
ago by C. R. Donnel, meets In the
drill hall. It formerly met In the Smith
hall on Goldsmith street. Two companies,
therefore, are using the building.
W. R. Baldra's Rlpht Hand Wnst
Lacerated and His Arm Broken.
William R. Baldra, who lives at 40S East
Washington street, was severely Injured
in an elevator accident in the Meier &
Frank building Monday, his right hand
on the upper side belnp shockingly lacer
ated and the arm broken Just above the
wrist. He Is driver for the firm. While
in the basement and using the elevator
his right hand was caught as the cage
began to move. Before he could release
It the flesh of the upper part of the hand
was stripped back from the knuckles to
tho wrist, and the bones of the arm brok
en. The arm was also lacerated up to the
elbow. He was taken to his home, and
Dr. "3. H. Thornton called to attend him.
His sufferings since the accident have
been very severe and constant. Yester
day evening he was resting more com
fortably, but was in a weak condition.
Brooklyn Republican dab No Longer
a Secret Organization.
The Brooklyn Republican Club was
completely reorganized last evening at the
building of the prcslderjc, F. G. Urfer, on
the corner of Mllwaukie and Beacon
streets. For two years the club had
maintained a secret organization, and the
membership was limited. This has been
changed. A new constitution has been
adopted, making it an open Republican
club. The territory it is supposed to cover
is between Division and Holgate streets,

Holmes Coal & Ice Co,
and between the Willamette River and
East Twenty-sixth street. It has already
a considerable membership, and others
are signing the roll.
Kindergarten Quarters Secnred.
After much effort to find a place, the
East Portland Kindergarten was opened
Monday In the basement of the First
United Brethren Church. East Morrison
and East Fifteenth streets. Miss Aitken
and Mrs. Anna Long are the teachers.
In Alblna the school has secured quarters
at 154 Russell street, which have been
properly fitted up for the school. Miss
Florence Jefferles Is teacher and Miss
Adela Lewton Is the assistant teacher.
Week of Prayer Service.
Week of prayer services will be held
in Westminster Presbyterian Church on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday even
ings at 8 o'clock. Having only three
evenings of the week given to these serv
ices, it is hoped that the membership
of the congregation will make a special
effort to attend.

of the fact, although the poisoner and
his motive are only suspected.
About a week ago a well-known physl
claij saw a suspicious person coming out
of Close Bros.' field and watched him
for a short way until he left the road and
went Into the brush. The man. was car.
rjing a sack on his shoulders, but Its
contents are not known; however, in a
few days the hogs in Close Bros.' pens
began to die off quite rapidly, and an
Investigation was started. Tarred paper
had been scattered all about the field and
In the pens, and of this the animals had
eaten. It Is claimed that tar is a sure
poison for hogs, and that they like it,
and this fact was evidently known to the
man who scattered it about so profusely.
Mr. Llndeman's hogs were poisoned In
the same way, but only a small quantity
of the paper has been found about his
premises. It Is thought perhaps some lar
or sulphur was placed In the troughs used
for feeding, but this Is not certain. The
hogs were of nearly all sizes, from little
sucklings up to breeders and marketable
animals. Mr. Llndeman had refused 55
for one Just the day before It died.
The loss falls very heavily upon both
parties, as they were just getting into the
business, and are now where they began,
with a year's profit lost. There will prob
ably be future developments, as certain
parties are suspected of scattering the
Pleasant Home Notes.

Good Food Will Do Wonders.
A test was made to see how much a thin
person could gain by using Grape-Nuts
Breakfast Food. A lady in Warren, O.,
says: "Some months ago I was so thin
and poorly nourished I thought I would
see what effect Grape-Nuts would have
on me, so I began taking the food reg
ularly for breakfast and began to greatly
Improve at once.
"I kept track of my weight and found
I gained nearly 10 pounds In about six
weeks, and I have never felt better In my
life. Haye no more sour stomach and
you may depend I think the food a great
"My son noticed he could memorize
more readily since he began using Grape
Nuts. -Please don't publish my name."
(Name can be given by Postum Company,
Battle Creek, Mich.)
The system will build out the body to
Its natural size and weight if the stom
ach can digest the food properly. So
when Grape-Nuts food is taken, being
really pre-dlgeeted, it quickly goes into
the blood and makes, not only tissue and
muscle, but particularly nourishes and
builds the brain and nerve centers. This
comes from the delicate particles of phos
phate of potash which is from certain
parts of the field grains and Incorporated
in the food. Its . use will prove the truth
of tha statement.
