No TJsn to Telephone. To numerous
Inquirers who are accustomed to call up
on or telephone The Oregonlan for elec
tion news on the night of election The
Oregonlm desires to say that it will have
no information of value prior to 2 A. M.
Tuesday morning. The ballots are long
and the count will be very slow, and, al
though the gathering of returns begins
before midnight, no totals can be com
piled till the hour of going to press. So
all persons who want advance Informa
tion will spare themselves and The Ore
gonlan much needless trouble if they will
be content to await the issue of The Ore
gonian. It is necessary to say, also, that
there will be no admission whatever to
the rooms where accountants are com
piling the figures, except to persons and
messengers with election returns.
Newtown Pippins on Exhibit. A lot of
handsome Yellow Newtown Pippins were
packed in a glass Jir about two feet
high and ID Inches in diameter at the
Permanent Exhibit on Washington street
a short time ago, to be kept on exhibi
tion there. The jar was packed as full
as it could hold and the upper tier of
apples was pressed down by the cover
when It was put on. The apples have
shrunk so that the lower ones are now
fully three Inches above the bottom of
the jar, and they are so crowded against
each other that the full beauty of the
fruit Is not exhibited. Just whether this
Is caused by the action of the liquid
used for preserving them or by some
thing else is not known. There are many
different kinds of fruit in the exhibit
which the preservative appears to affect
In different ways. Some pears, apples, etc,
float in the liquid, while others sink to
the bottom. Some fruits preserve their
natural colors, while others are changed
in appearance. Just why this is is what
it Js desired to find out. The liquid used
preserves the fruit indefinitely, but it
would be an Improvement if it could be
fixed so that the fruits would remain
in it as they were arranged when it was
turned in, so that all the fruits would
preserve their natural colors in it.
Vast Amodnt op Honet Raised in
Okegon. Few have any idea of the
amount of honey produced in this state.
The large quantity of "bee supplies" In
the shape of hives and the trays of little
boxes in which the bees build their combs,
which are imported here from the East,
amounting to half a dozen carloads, give
a clue to the large amount of honey pro
duced, although some of these supplies
go to Washington and Idaho. Consider
able quantities of honey are produced
in the Willamette Valley, and much more
in the foothills of the Coast range on both
sides of the mountains, but the vast
alfalfa fields of Eastern Oregon produce
the largest part of the honey. It finds
ready sale, and considerable California
honey is also marketed here.
Monet in Sawdust. The use of saw
dust for' fuel in steam power plants not
only enables sawmill men tp operate
their mills with this offal, which used to
be a great nuisance, but some of the
mills receive quite an Income from the
sale of their surplus dust. A millman
who was collecting a bill of several hun
dred dollars from another manufactur
ing concern for a month's supply of saw
duBt stated that when he was about to
build his mills he offered to give all his
surplus eawdust to a manufacturer if he
would put up a plant on one end of the
mill property. His offer was not ac
cepted, and now he receives $300 per
month for the sawdust he offered to give
away. He likes this method of dispos
ing of it much better.
Water Wouks Office Open Today.
This being election day, is a legal .holi
day, and public offices generally will be
closed. The water works office on the
ground floor of the City Hall will, how
ever, be open all day, though all the of
fices In the building above the ground
floor will be closed all day. During the
first 10 days of this month of June there
will be two Sundays and the water
works office should be closed today.
There would be only seven days in which
water consumers could pay their bills.
This would lead to many of them having
to stand in line for an hour or more wait
ing for a chance to pay, and in order to
save them this inconvenience the office
will be kept open today.

Sick Cat Goes to Doctor. Tfce -passengers
on an Albina car were somewhat as
tonished yesterday at the motions of a
basket carried by one of the wooien on
board. It evidently had something alive
inside It that was trying to get out. The
woman kept pressing down first oi one
end of the cover and then on the ether,
but finally the string was broken and, the
head of a cat protruded. As the
animal was about to escape a man has
tened to the woman's assistance and the
cat was pushed back into the basket.
The woman then explained that the cat
was sick and she was taking it to a doc
tor. One of. the passengers who knew her,
asked her why she did not take it to at
doctor who Hvd near her. She evidently
had no faith In this physician, for she
exclaimed: '"Him! Neln. I would not
have him fn my house if mein cat vos
dead." She got off the car on Third
street, but what became of her cat is
not known. Administering medicine to a
sick cat la a risky job, as a citizen knows
who tried it, and as a result carried his
hand in a sling for six months. The
only safe way to dose a cat is to cut
off Its head and remove it out of reach
of the claws, then jam an iron pipe be
tween the teeth ancT pour the medicine
through this. If it does not fix the cat
right short it makes no difference; the
cat has nine lives anyhow, and if It dies
and is buried or sent to the garbage
cremator' it will "come back" after a
To Raise Ginsbnq in Oregon. A man
on the East Side Is experimenting In the
cultivation of ginseng. He prooured seed
from New York, planted it in hhl garden
and It is doing well. This plant Is found
in China, where the root Is highly valued
for medicinal purposes. It has become
scarce there, and the root of a different
species found in America is now exported
there, but it Is not so highly valued by
the Chinese as that grown in their own
country. The virtues of ginseng are more
imaginary than real, but because the
root forks and somewhat resembles the
body and legs of a human being, the Chi
nese look upon it as something holy, if
they have such a word in their language,
and fabulous prices have been paid for
extraordinarily fine roots. The cultivated
root is not so highly esteemed as the
wild. It is Indigenous to the Middle
States at certain altitudes, especially in
the hill regions of Tennessee, New York,
Nebraska and some of the New England
states, and In places In Southern Oregon.
It Is kept by most druggists here, but is
not extensively used as a medicine in
this country. In Tennessee there is a
class of people called "seng" hunters,
who make a hand-to-mouth living by
gathering ginseng, but Jt is doubtful If
the plant can be cultivated with profit, as
the demandls limited.
Pest Attacks Cherry Trees. A fruit
grower, In the outskirts of the city on
the East Side, who has noticed the ac
count of some cherry orchards in this
section being attacked by a boring beetle,
writes to The Oregonlan that his cherry
trees are affected with .some disease
which he Is afraid will kill them. He
has searched for borers, but does not
find any trace of them. He says the
limbs of his trees began dying at the
ends and the disease Is working inward
toward the center of the tree. The trou
ble is probably the result of the presence
of borers In the orchard. After these
pests have finished boring they change
to moths, which deposit their eggs at
the base of buds In the new growth on
the ends of limbs. From these eggs is
hatched a grub which eats Its way into
the young tender shoots, and follows
down the pith, killing the part of the
limb they operate in. The best thing to
do In this caeo is to remove all infested
limbs promptly and burn them, and thus
prevent the spread of the "disease." The
trees probably lack cultivation or the
soil Is deficient In some constituent nec
essary to the health and growth of the
tree, which has caused them to lose vigor
and thus Invite the attack of pests.
Goats Flourish in Aiaska. Mrs.
Mary Gallagher, who has lately returned
from Wrangel, Alaska, writes to The
Oregonlan to say that she noticed the
Inquiry of some one at Salem In regard
to nannygoats, and wishes to inform
this person that If no goat can be pro
cured nearer, one or any number can be
obtained at Wrangel, where many are
kept for supplying fresh milk for chil
dren. She adds that such milk is much
more wholesome for Infants than any
kind of condensed milk. The goats man
age to pick up a living on the rocks
around town during the short Summer
and are easily subsisted during the Win
ter. The only trouble with them Is that
they claim the right of way on the
streets, which are mostly nothing more
than two planks raised on trestles, and
when a band of goats go out for a prom
"enade everybody has to clear the way for
them, as a wicked old "Billy" marches
ahead and those who get In his way are
butted off the planks In short order. It
Is hardly probable that any one In this
land flowing with milk and honey will
find it necessary to send to the Arctic
circle for a milch goat, but if this should
be the case, Mrs. Gallagher's information
will be appreciated.
Fisherman's Good Catch. Several
sportsmen were talking over the trout
fishing restriction yesterday, when one
of them told a yarn about a Mr. Francis,
who, while out fishing a few days ago,
hooked and landed a Mongolian pheas
ant. He had Just thrown his line behind
him In preparation for making a long
cast, when his companion accidentally
struck his arm, causing his line to drop
to the ground. When he attempted to
complete his cast he found that "he had
hooked something in the stubble behind
him, and in reeling In he found that a
pheasant had taken his hook, a rather
gaudy fly. One of the listeners, remarked
that In his opinion this was a "fish story,"
but he was assured that it was a true
tale, that the pheasant had been "land
ed," the hook extracted and the bird
turned loose. "Well," said the skeptical
listener, "I'll believe that the bird was
hooked and safely landed, but I'll be
hanged If I believe that he was released.

EXAMINATION FOR REVENUE CUTTER
Cadets. Representative Malcolm A.
Moody sent Tho Oregonlan an announce
ment that the "United States Civil Ser
vice Commission would hold an examina
tion in Portland on June 17, 18 and 18 for
applicants for appointment In the Reve
nue Cutter Service. Owing to the late
date. Mr. Moody sent the application
blanks direct to The Oregonlan, thinking
that possibly some of the young men of
Portland would be glad to enter the Rev
enue Cutter Service, since It Is one of the
arms of our Navy and will most likely
sooner or later be consolidated with it.
The examination will be quite severe, and
as there are only eight or ten cadets to
be appointed In the whole United States
only those with excellent papers can hope
to succeed. The application blanks and
any additional information may be se

Excursions Well Attended. Twenty
carloads of happy excursionists attended
the trip given yesterday to Salem by the
Federated Trades Council.1 The weather
was all that could be desired, although a
trifle bleak. Field sports were actively
engaged in at Salem, and In a baseball
match between the Felfers Union, of
Portland, and the unions of Salem, the
Portlanders were easy winners, idue to
superior stick work. The score was 17
to 6. There were also footraces and a
general good time. The committee's ar
rangements worked well and the outing
was a great success. The first excursion
of the season on the Astoria & Columbia
Railroad to Seaside was well attended.

JA Correction. The 'election of Harry
W. Hogue to the office of County Judge
ws urged by The Oregonlan yesterday as
W not a politician. Every one knows
thn$ Mr. Hogue is the regular Republi

thatvthe Republican candidate for County
Judep is Lionel R. Webster, a man In
everj way worthy of the support of all
voterp. Mr. Hogue is the son of Harvey
A. Hpgue, a pioneer of '51, a lawyer of
high standing, and Is thoroughly fitted by
training and temperament to fill the of
fice for which he Is a candidate. He
should be elected.

BULLRUN WATER ATTACKED
California Paper Saps Filter Have
to Take Oat Orjrtnic Matter.
A clipping from the Sacramento Bee
of May 7 has beon pent )d The Oregonlan
by a patriotic citizen, wo calls attention
to an "Incorrect" statement therein, in
regard to Portland's watr supply, which
he thinks should be refuted. The state
ment complained of Is as follows:
"Portland. Or., put In, sit or seven years -
ago, a plant which gave er a supply of
pure mountain spring water from the Bull
Run district, at an expense of nearly
J7.000.000. It was claimed to he the finest
water onjoyed by any municipality In the
United States, and Is said to have been
the principal factor In the' recent rapid
growth of Portland. Within' the post few
years It has been found, however, that tho
amount of organic matter fcj this water,
as. delivered at Portland, has Increased 21
to 22 per cent each year. Durjpg the past
year liquor men have been tompelled to
go back to filters In order to make the
Portland water sufficiently pnre for recti
fying." When It Is understood that this state
ment was made by an agent. of a filter
company, who was endeavoring to sell a
filter to the City of Sacramento, and that
the misstatement In regard Jo organic
matter in Bull Run water wis made In
tho way of business, many people would
probably be Inclined to overlook Its un
truthfulness. The fact Is. however that
the amount of organic matter contained,
in nun Run water Is so Infinitesimal that
it cuts no figure. There has been no In
crease In its amount each year, nor dur
ing all the years, since It was brought
into Portland, and rectifiers have not been
compelled, to go back to filters, jior have
they any filters or any use for them as
Bull Run water Is as pure as it was w'hon
first "turned in" by nature. In fact, drug
gists find that Bull Run water answers all
the practical purposes of distilled water,
and filters are no longer used, in drug
stores even. The only trouble rectifiers
or consumers of whisky, etc., have with
Bull Run Js to resist the temptation to
put tob much of It in their liquor.
Citizens of Portland who have, traveled
in all quarters of the globe. still truthfully
allege that the water supply of this city
is the finest enjoyed by any municipality
not only In the United States, but in the

NOTICE TO SOCIALISTS.
This Is the most Important election in
which Socialists have ever participated.
One Socialist vote today rapans four or
five two years from new. If you believe
in the principles of Soclalfsm, there to
only one way In which you can declare
3'our opinions, and that is by voting the
party ticket straight. It is especially to
De nrgea mat socialists do not permit
themselves to be drawn Jnto the fight
which the old partiea are making over
the Governorship. The vote for the Gu
bernatorial candidates is afways taken as
the measure of party strength, and It is
therefore most Important ,that 'every So
cialist vote for R. R. Ryan for Governor.
This to a battle of principles, and a vote
for either of the old party candidates Is a
vote against Socialism. What Oregon So
.clallsts do today will have a vast influ
ence In the elections through the East
this Fall. Let us stand together.

Easily the blgges hit that has beeri
made by the Stuart company since the
beginning of its engagement at the Baker
Theater was made yesterday afternoon
and evening, when the splendid melo
drama, "The Silver King," was presented
to two crowded houses. The play has not
been given In Portland for so many years
that most of those who were familiar with
it had forgotten what a stage classic it
is, while these who last night saw It for
the first time were more than delighted
with its admirably drawn characters, Its
strong situations, and the deep human In
terest "which pervades every act and every
scene. Curtain palls 4n liberal numbers
showed how much the play was appre
ciated, while frequent bursts of applause
accompanying the action often made
necessary the repetition of half,a dozen
The plajs strength lies in Its appeal to
the best in human nature. The story of
the ultimate confusion of the wicked and
the triumph of virtue may be old and
threadbare, but when It Is told dearly,
logically, and without cant. It Is worth
listening to, and la convincing. Ip "The
Silver King" this old tale is told plainly,
clearly. Interestingly. The sorrows of
Wilfred Denver, who believes himself to
be guilty of a murder, and Is saved from
a drunkard's fate by the consequent
awakening of his conscience, appeals di
rectly to the sympathy of the audience,
and the soulless rascality of his persecut
ors arouses their animosity in a like de
gree. The situations of the play are all
etrong, the by-play is clever and enter
taining, and there is an air of possibility
and nnturalness about the whole thing
tliat makes It as different from the ordi
nary melodrama an it is superior to it
The company was finely cast. Mr.
Stuart, as Wilfred Denyer, drunkard.
sailor, miner, silver king, and avenger.
successively, ran the whole gamut with
that cleverness and adaptability that are
possible only to the actor of experience
and mind. His drunken scene In the
first act was exceedingly well done, while
his similitude of the horror that la the
murderer's on discovering what he has
done, his sorrow en contemplating the
fate of his wife, and his Joy on returning
to his family, were all real so real, in fact,
that his audience shared his changing
emotions with him, suffered when he suf
fered and rejoiced when he rejoiced. Mr.
Stuart has dene mnnyi fine pieces of
work on the Baker stage, but, taking
Wilfred Denver for all in all, he has never
done anything better. Louts Morrison, as
Coombcs. the accomplice of 'The Spider,"
accomplished something with a Hebrew
character- that few actors can do. He
made Coombes funny without being re
pulsive, criminal without being disgusting,
and in every particular. In make-up, dia
lect and manner free from, exaggeration,
and having a quiet humor which covered
a multitude of sins. Frank Sheridan, as
"The Spider," was tho kind of a villain
one reads of but seldom sees, a villain as
unlike tho ordinary melodramatic article
as he Is unlike the hero. Mr. Sheridan
was at his best, and his characterization
was one of the most artistic things In the
play. Arthur Garrells was sufficient as
Carkett; C. P Clary answered the re
quirements of Goeffrey Ware; Louis Fro
hoff was a typical faithful servant, and
Robert Lawrence played an English tough
As Nelly, Denver's wife, Lansing Rowan
had a good opportunity to prove herself
an emotional actress of great ability, and
she improves it so well that many of those
who saw her declared It the best thing
ehe has done In Portland. Elizabeth
Stuart had a small part, which she played
In her usual charming style.
The many scenes, which require a num
ber of people, were handled with Judg
ment, and the mlpor actors In the cast
were all Judiciously placed. The mount
ing was elaborate, as the play has five
acts and 13 scenes, and each picture was
as it should be.
"The Silver King" will run all the week,
and should do the record business of tho
