REAL ESTATE DEPRESSED
STRIKE ASD POLITICS AFFECT THE
Boycott Suspends Building: Opera

ness Will Pick Op. ,
Activity In real estate and building has
been much depressed by politics and the
strike. After the strike was declared off,
activity picked up, butwhen the- boycott
was found to be as bad'lf not worse than
the strike, both the realty market and
building became quiet again. The effect
of the strike and of politics has been re
flected in the dally report of the City En
gineer's and County Recorder's offices.

Owing to the limited supply of so-called
fair" planing mill supplies, contractors
Jhavo been holding back from new projects
in the past 10 days. Borne contractors
ihave gone ahead in the hope that the. boy
cott will be dissolved In a short time. It
lis estimated that present planing mill
supplies will last about two weeks longer.
After they are gone, unless the boycott
is declared off, builders will be up against
it good and hard. And, Inasmuch as all
the parties in the strike are determined
to win out, the fear Is expressed that the
unions will not grow tired of the boycott.
Real estate dealers look for an Improve
ment in their market this week. The fall
ing off In suburban sales Is reported to be
relatively larger than that of "close-In"
transactions. Transfers of business prop
erty are made much slower than those of
other realty, so that the effect on them
of tho strike and of politics Is not so
noticeable. No large deals were made last
week, but several are pending and may
soon be announced.
For residences 51500 to 52500 is the pop
alar price on tho East Side, and for the
"West Side from 52500 to 54000. The mar
ket In this property has been very quiet
in the past few days. "We look for things
to Improve in our line In tho next week."
said N. "W. Rountree, of Rountree & Dia
mond. "People are waiting for the strike
to be settled," said J. "W. Blain, of Grind
staff & Blaln. "If It were settled now
we should have more business than we
could attend to." F. E. "Watkins, of Par
rlsh. Watkins & Co., reported that sales
of farm land did not show the falling off
of other realty. "A good many strangers
are seeking farms," said he. "Tho usual
price of such land Is between 525 and 540
PENNIES FOR THE BUTCHER
After July 1. Patrons Will Pay for
Juut What Tliey Buy.
The butchers of Portland have decided
to adopt the "penny system" of doing
business that Is, to make change down
to a cent. This system has been In
vogue in department stores of this city
and tome other places for some time,
and, of course, has been in use In all
Eastern cities always. In the good old
days, when meats were cheap and money
was plenty, no one was particular about
a cent or two or a few ounces of moat,
and a piece of steak or roast always
weighed even pounds or enough to make
Now that meats are dear and money Is
not so plentiful, or so evenly distributed
as It used to be, people eye the scales
more carefully than they used to and
object to paying for a pound if the scales
show that there is only 14 or 15 ounces.
The new computing scale now used by
many butchers, -which figures up Just
what a piece of meat comes to at any
thing from 3 to 30 cents per pound, en
ables the customer to see Just what he
ought to pay for his steak or roast, and
change must be made accordingly. The
butchers say they will receive many pen
nies under this system that they now do
not get; and customers say that they will
have to pay for no more than they get.
So both "will be satisfied with the new
arrangement. To old-timers It will seem
strange to have to pay 47 or 53 cents for a
steak, which always used to cost an even
DO cents. But they will soon get used to
this, and will begin to realize the truth
fulness of the old saying: "Take care of
the pennies, and the pounds will take
care of themselves."
It Is Intended that the new system shall
come Into use July 10. If It does, all
butchers will take to using the computing
scale, and will take no notice of the
FURXISII AS A REPUBLICAN.
For several years W. J. rurnish held
office In pursuance of election on Demo
cratic tickets. Had there been any
fault in his official conduct, his vigilant
Republican opponents would have found
It. He even ran as a Republican can
didate for Presidential Elector, and no
word was spoken except in his praise.
Not until the Republicans nominated
him as their candidate for Governor
did the Democrats And anything to say

made has been dlspiwed, but they por

mocracy. weight of the piece of meat they are sell
ing, but only how much It comes to. One
butcher Is already training himself to
tills by having a piece of paper placed
so as to cover the weight marked by the
scale. So If It Is, say 5 pounds 13 ounces,
he Is not tempted to call It C pounds. In
order to make the reckoning of the price
easy. The weight and price are, however,
both visible on the other side of the cylin
der for the benefit of the purchaser.
The butchers have also indorsed the
plan of having a city Inspector of meats.
An ordinance providing for such an offi
cial, and defining his duller., will be in
troduced at the meeting of the Council
Wednesday by Mr. Mulkey. and it is quite
likely to be passed.
Effect of Borer on Human System.
BERLIN June L Experts attached to
the Imperial Health Office have published
a bulky pamphlet giving the results of
their protracted experiments to determine
the effect of borax upon tho human sys
tem. Tho tests were made upon four men
and were carried en for two years. Ac
cording to the pamphlet, the tests have
proved that borax In the human system
letards assimilation of albumen and fats
and Interferes In the renewal of tissues. A
single dose of borax remains In a man's
body for eight days. The continued use
of borax, even In small quantities, causes
an cxeesslve loss of liquids and a decrease
In weight, without Increasing the subject's
-thirst or hunger. In some cases these
phenomena assume a threatening aspect.

ON THE NEW CHIVALRY.
airs. Ada Unruli Addrense Large Y.
M. C. A. Audience.
"The New Chivalry" as the subject of
an interesting address by Mrs. Ada Unruh
at the Y. M. C. A. Auditorium yesterday
afternoon. She referred to the stories of
chivalry of the past, which told of men
doing daring deeds for their lady loves.
"Men and women of today," said she,
"stand In a different relation, and a
braver and truer chivalry Is needed.
Chivalry Is a God-given instinct, and Is
accorded to woman, not on account of her
weakness, but because each Is a repre
sentative of motherhood. Instead of It
being necessary for woman to be protect
ed against temptation, every man's man
hood should be a guarantee of safety and
purity. In our work In the slums the
women we find there have been tempted
before they became tempters. Many have
fallen as the result of man's false Ideal
of his relation to womanhood.
"It Is safe to say that real love never
tempted a woman to her downfall. The
passion that is called such has no similar
ity to love. Love alwajs has the same
characteristics, whether It be God's love
for his children, a mother's love or the
love of a man for a woman. It is always
unselfish and sacrificing. The moment a
man shows a desire to tempt a woman
to do that which would cast a shadow'
upon her purity, he gives proof positive
that the paseion he has for her Is not
"It is a common belief that much less
purity in living Is demanded of man than
of woman. It Is said that men should be
brave and woman should be pure. While
this is true, the great need of the world
today Is brave women and virtuous men.
"Man's life Is not his own, to be used
for his own pleasure, but a gift to be
held In trust for future generations, and
Its value enhanced ere It is passed down."

a widow and one boy, Everett St. John
Donan, who is 1 year old. Colonel Donan
was a Southern irreconcilable, and a
brave fighter In the Confederate Army,
who argued about the lost cause by voice
and pen long after the armed conflict
had ceased. He was born at Natchez,
Miss., April 9, 1S39, and his father was a
Presbyterian clergyman and a graduate
of Princeton College.
When the war broke out between the
North and South, Donan received his
commission as an officer in the Confed
erate Army from the hands of Jeff Davis
himself. Ho was present at most of
the Important battles, and was severe
ly wounded several times. The famHy
to which he belonged was a wealthy
one in ante-bellum days, but at the com
mencement of the reconstruction period
it had suffered financial reverses and
the old Southern home was dismantled.
After a period of foreign travel Colonel
Donan engaged in newspaper and liter

Washington, Philadelphia, Fargo, N. D.,
and on the Pacific Coast, About 1SS7 he
first came to Oregon to boom land values
In the Astoria district, and made a repu

November of that year he married his
wife, Miss Eleanor S. Brown, of Poca

FIRE IN ARLINGTON CLUB
In the Rowling Alley Does
Tlie alarm turned In at 3:30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon was for a fire at the
Arlington Club. It started In some unex
plained manner In the big cushion or
bulkhead at the west end of" the bowling
alley, made to prevent the balls from
striking the wall. This cushion contained
a large amount of excelsior, in which the
fire started, and where It smoldered some
time before being discovered, as the room
was closed. The smoke was so dense that
the celling, walls and furniture In the
room were colored quite black, and the
heat became so Intense that the surface
of tho alleys was charred half their
length, all the windows were shattered
and a new bicycle belonging to Mr. Sar
gent, the steward of the club, which had
been left In tho room, was ruined. The
firemen responded to the alarm with their
usual .alacrity, and soon had the smol
dering excelsior pitchforked out through
a window and a stream of water playing
on it. To put the room In order, repair
the damaged alleys and replace the fur

School Arc for Girls.
Dr. S. Weir Mitchell deliberately main
tains that for all the best purposes of
female society it would be better that
American girls were not educated at all
until they were 17, than that they be over
wrought, as they are at present. They
study seven or eight hours a day when
two or three would be sufficient' to keep
?Z- LTtti $? 'feilin
their Intelligence tn training and all for
what? To spend their after years on a
sofa or sickroom,, and to be a burden
instead of a help to those who are dear
est to them.
It Is a tremendous saying, from one
speaking from authority, that as much
domestic nnhapplaess is caused in Amer
ica by nervousness- among women as by
dram-drlnklng among men. Yet such Is
Dr. Mitchell's verdict.
He holds' that every girl ought to be ex
amined as to her nervous temperament
when about to go to school, and at fre-l
quent Internals afterward; that leisure,
exercise and wholesome meals ought to be
insisted upon, and that studies- ought to be
compulsorlly diminished, or discontinued
altogether the moment the well-known
signs of overstrain appear.
If girls are maintained in a normal ner
vous condition until they are 17 they may
study as hard as they please afterward
without imperiling the woman's life. But
let there be no mistake about it. Over
work and unnatural worry from 8 or 9
to IT means ruin and wretchedness from'
17 until early death.

THE BEAUTIFUL WEBER

The "Weber is not an ordinary piano. Npr is it a piano that
would be appreciated to its fullest extent by any but the most cul
tured and fastidious musicians. Its exquisite quality of tone is appar
ent to everybody, to be sure, but its glorious sweetness and purity
of tone and its delightful perfection of touch and action these points
are appreciated best where musical talent has been educated in the

It is a perfect piano; it certainly is, in the opinion of the un
biased, a good deal nearer absolute perfection than has been reached
in pianos of other make.
We have on display today a most beautiful Weber Baby Grand,
an exact duplicate of the one purchased in New York last week by
Helen Gould. No choicer or more exclusive instrument can be
obtained by connoisseur or multi-millionaire in America's greatest
city than can be obtained right here, at Eilers Piano House.
We are the exclusive representatives of the Weber piano for the
West. It will give us great pleasure to show these exquisite instru
ments to all who are interested.

are small and Inconspicuous, and are fer
tilized by night-flying: moths, which, led
by the nose, cannot miss them. Another
name is Chinese yam, the tuberous root
being: edible. This root Is curious in belngr
long: and "big: at the bottom and little
at the top." In planting: the hole should
be deep enough to have the tip of the
small end close to the surface. The growth
Is annual, but the root Is hardy, and once
glvenplace in the garden, is there for
keeps. The Increase Is from bulbleta
forming along the stem. These drop to
the ground, and the next year produce
a vine and begin the growth of the tuber,
the growth of the year following produc
ing flowers and bulblets.
The vine, with its heart-shaped, strong
ly veined leaves. Is one of the most sat
isfactory for the garden or for the window-box.
It is twining and must have
support. Tubers are for sale by the deal
ers, good ones costing a nickel each. The
plant does best in sunshine, as If hap
piest where Its shade will be most needed,
but wllL do well almost anywhere and in
almost any sort of soil.
The botanical name Is Dioscorea, In
honor of a Greek physician and nature
student of Nero's time.
t DOXT FORGET THE CHARTER
All voters within the City of Portland
must pass today on the question as to
whether we shall have a new city char
ter. A commission appointed under
authority of law worked many weeks
framing a document that would Insure
the city economlal and efflclent admin
istration, and that result has been at
tained, eo far as it can be Insured by
wise law. The provisions of the charter
are already well known to the public.
All parties aro committed to the new
charter, and If it Is Indorsed by tho
jeople of Portland It will bo enacted in
Its present form by the next Legisla
ture. So do not fail to -ote 'Yes
In approval of the charter.
THE PROPOSED CHARTER.
An Appeal. For It to Be Remem
bered in the Voting; Today.
PORTLAND, Or., June 1. (To the Edi
tor.) I cannot refrain from taking this
opportunity to make a final appeal to all
voters, regardless of party affiliations, to
cast their votes for the new charter.
It Is so generally believed that tho
great majority of the people favor it,
that I fear from this very cause many will
overlook the Importance of piling up such
a majority that even the "professional
charter-maker" will not dare to tamper
with lt It Is not my purpose at this
last hour to enter into a discussion or
analysis of the charter. Its features were
debated publicly for months. Everyone
having the slightest Interest in the sub
ject had ample time and opportunity to
present their viewd and have them con
sidered. Many did so, and suggestions
made were gratefully received. It Is not
a perfect instrument, but It is framed on
modern lines for a modern city. For
the first time In the history of our clty
we can vote on onr local constitution.
Thoae who believe in home rule, In non
legislative Interference with out local af
fairs, In protecting and conserving rights
created by and belonging to the whole
people, should vote for the new charter.
Those who favor it should vote fof
it for another reason. Under the most
favorable circumstances It will be about
eleven months before It can go into ef
fect, but a large majority vote In Its
favor will certainly have the effect of
pracUcally Instructing the Incoming May
or and Council of the position of the
people on the question of franchises and
others dealt with directly In the new char
ter, and will go far towards sustaining
those who are now standing for the city's
rights and Interests.
The government of our city comes dl
recUy home to all of us. Its business
is our business. It can only thrive
through us and those who follow us.
There Is no questions presented to our
people at this election which approaches
It In Importance. I therefore appeal to
all who aro In: sympathy with Its pur
poses to not only vote for it themselves,
but to see that all Its friends do likewise.
