THE BAKER THEATER This evening at
8:15, "Charley's Aunt."
Wttpv. Lorn to say Good-Bte. The of
ficers and cadets o the German training
ship Herzogln Cecllle. -which -went down
the river Sunday morning, were accom
panied as far as Knapp's Light, 23 miles,
by some 25 of their friends among the
German people of Portland, whose friend
ship and esteem they won during their
stay In this port. There were about 15
ladles In the party, and a "very enjoyable
time was had. Captain Spencer kindly
furnished a boat for the use of the party,
and spread a nice lunch for them, to
whirti thn curtain of the ship added
champagne. Tho band of the ship fur
nished music, and a Jolly dancing party
was held 'tween decks, on the ship. The
excursion was a regular demonstration.
As they passed tho Government revenue
cutter Perry all on board tho ship cheered
the Stars and Stripes, flags were dipped
in salute, and tho band played "Hail, Col
umbia." 'The flags of all the ships of
different nationalities were saluted, and
appropriate music played as each was
passed, and when these courtesies had
been attended to, dancing was resumed.
When it came time to separate, both the
departing visitors and their friends were
in a high state of enthusiasm and there
were not a few tears shed when the final
handshakes were taken. The party,
climbed down aboard the tug which was
to bring them back, with many an "auf
wlodersehen," and many expressions of
good will and affection on both sides. It
is safe to say that all on board the ship
will long remember their sojourn in Port
land, and will look forward with pleasure
to returning here.
Dredge Has to Quit. The Port of
Portland's dredge. Columbia, which has
been deepening tho channel at Postofflco
bar for about a month, has been obliged
to suspend operations on account of the
freshet on the Willamette, and the amount
of driftwood being carried dewn. Assist
ant United States Engineer Eagnal, who
Is in charge, expects to be able to resume
operations in a few days, and thinks that
the Improvement can bo completed with 10
days work. The flood In the Willamette
has caused back water at the locks in tho
Yamhill River, and the water there marks
42 feet above zero on the gauge. A tor
rent 21 feet in depth was pouring over the
lock walls, and at last accounts yesterday
the water was still rising. River boats
with machinery powerful enough ought to
be able to climb over the lock now without
waiting for the gates to be opened, and
unless the water stops rising ocean steam
ers will soon be able to navigate the roar
ing Yamhill. The flood has prevented

"Ogden from getting over to Umpqua to

Good Buck Shooting. Sportsmen gen
erally enjoyed very good duck shooting
last Sunday, much better than for sev
eral weeks, although the day was too flne
and bright for this sport. In a few places
the water came up so rapidly, and to
such a height, as to interfere with the j
sport, but there were ducks everywhere.
A fine bag was made at Dead Willows,
the full limit being shot The ducks killed
mostly mallards, were tho finest shot this

the neighborhood of four pounds each,
and. one, a whopper, came within two
ounces of five pounds. At Morgan's, one
of tho best day's sport of the season was
had. Jerome Thorne, the youngest of
the party, distinguished himself by bring
ing down two swan, one with each barrel,
a long shot; and ho would have- dropped
another if his gun had been a three
barreled one. There are many ducks
about the preserves, and owing to their
being well fed are in unusually fine con
dition for this late in the season.

Mill, Columbia, Fourth and Fifth streets
is being made a common dumping ground
for garbage and refuse of all sorts. On a
building near the north end of the block
is posted a placard, signed by S. A. Mil

and conviction of any one trespassing on
this property. The half block, or the
greater part of it, belongs to the Meade
estate. It is valuable property, finely sit

the Meade estate might have the tin

Baby Seal Is Dead. The baby seal
-which has been in the pond at the City
.Park for somo time and had grown to be
t about 2& feet in length died on Sunday.
The cause of its death is not known for
certain, but from a bruise on the body it
is thought that the large old seal in the
pond must have hurt it This seal is
about flvo feet long, and is sometimes
cross. The skin of the little one will be
mounted and placed in the free museum.
Colonel Hawkins thinks there will bo no
difficulty about getting another baby seal
for tho park, as soon as the salmon fish

quently capture seals of all sizes In nets,

set product out of three sets of machinery-
Now the plant Js being doubled by
putting in three additional sets.' By run
ning the whole day and night the prod
uct of a 12-set mill will be secured. The
mill has been in operation about a year,
and has proved a success from the start.
The product is sold in New York and
San Francisco, and is in demand. The
mill, when the additional machinery is In,
will be the second largest on the Coast,
the mill at Oregon City being larger. The
output will be raised to 40,000 yards per
month. The stock in these mills, amount
ing to $100,000, has all been taken, and
there is not a share on the market. At
the annual meeting of stockholders, held
a few days ago, the following officers were
elected for the ensuing year: W. P. Olds,
president; Captain Gordon "Voorhies, first
vice-president; Charles Coopey, second
vice-president; E. L. Thompson, secretary
and manager; Charles Carter, superin

land capitalists, and in addition to those
mentioned Includes W. M. Ladd, W. F.
Burrell and R. D. Larmbee, of Montana,
who is practically a Portland capitalist.
Watchmkn Were Sportive. Some of
tho sportsmen's clubs of this city, who
have had poor shooting in their pre
serves of late, have finally tumbled to
the situation, and by investigation have
found that they have been "done, up by
the watchmen employed to take care of
their preserves. Early in the season one
of these fellows was found to be double
shooting the game by selling part of the
wheat sent to him to be fed to the ducks
and by shooting the ducks that he at
tracted with the remainder of the wheat.
He was discharged and a successor em
ployed, who did not sell wheat, but ho
could not refrain from having some sport
himself during the week, ivhen the ducks
were just loafing about waiting to bo
shot. These matters were finally satis
factorily adjusted, and the clubs have
enjoyed some good sport ever since. A
man who watches a preserve should not
know how to shoot ducks.
Had a Boom of Loos Once. Robert
Alexander, who Is engaged In the round
timber and other lumber business at Cot
tage Grove, has been in the city for sev
eral days, and is beginning to feel anx
ious in regard to getting away. He has a
lot of piling and timber In a boom on the
West Fork of tho Willamette, or had
last Saturday, when he last heard from
his foreman. Then railroad communica
tion was cut off by the flood, and he could
not get back to Cottage Grove. The tele
phone line went down, and he could not
hold communication with the town, and
ho feels as if something had gone astray.
The condition puts him in mind of early
days, when there were no railroads or
telephones in Oregon. He would then
have acbepted the situation as a matter
of course, and would have waited pa
tiently till the clouds and the floods rolled
by. People are not so patient as they
used to be.
Profanity Didnt Help Much. The
broken axle of a wagon pllad high with
cordwood delayed the cars on both the
Fifth and the Morrison-street lines list
evening, at the time when the down-town
crowd was swarming homeward. Tho
wagon was at the . corner of Fifth and
Morrison streets when the break-down
occurred, and though one of the cars
pushed with all Its power, and the horses
responded nobly, a long lino of cars filled
with hungry people had to wait until the
wood was unloaded and the horses could
pull the broken wagon out of the way.
Accidents of this kind usually happen
when every one is in a particular hurry,
but no amount of swearing on the part
of either the passengers or the carmen
helped to unload the wood any faster.

To Hold Good Roads Convention.
The impetus given to the work of secur
ing good roads, by the Government con
vention held in this city last Fall, does not
appear to be diminishing. There will be
held in Medford on February 13 and 14 a
local convention of good roads workers
and fruitgrowers, at which time a com

Affidavits That the Savnjses Guarded
John R. Foster.
Freemasons are not allowed to see John
R. Foster, the aged pioneer, of whose per
son and estate B. G. Whltehouse was ap
pointed guardian by the County Court sev
eral days ago.
Homer D. Sanborn filed an affidavit to
this effect In the State Circuit Court yes
terday. He states that Dora Savage and
her husband, Frank Savage, gave such
Instructions to tho servants In the Fos
ter household. In his affidavit Mr. San
born says: "Sophia told me she had or
ders not to admit Masons. I asked her
who so Instructed her, and she answered
Mr. Savage.
"I said, 'You will have to be very care
ful, Sophia. In the first place, you must
ask them and know that they are Ma
sons, and then you can obey your or
"No one was present except Sophia and
myself, and tho conversation occurred In
the dining-room, just as I was going out
of the dining-room Into the hall.
"Thereafter, I had a conversation with
Bertha Krugg, an unmarried sister of So
phia, who was then engaged in the house
as cook, and asked her if she had the same
orders, and she said she had. This con
versation took place as she came out of
the pantry. I was standing by thei screen
door which leads to tho porch."
The affidavit further recites that Dora
Savage was living in the house at this
time, and has been there since the death
of Mrs. Foster In December.
Mr. Sanborn has also subscribed to tho
following affidavit:
"I, H. D. Sanborn, being first duly sworn,
depose and say that I am acquainted with
John R. Foster, and have been so ac
quainted for 45 years last past, and dur
ing the last 15 months and up to January
11, 1903, I was in almost constant attend
ance upon him in his house in this city.
"That I have read the complaint filed In
the above entitled cause, and that tho alle
gations thereof are true, as i verily be
lieve, excepting as modified hereby.
"That I have been asked to state under
oath what knowledge I have tending to
support the last sentence of paragraph 8
fof said complaint wherein it is alleged In
suDstance mat me aei.enaa.nt, ior tne pur
poses therein stated, refused to permit
tho friends and acquaintances of plaintiff
to visit him and denied admission to all
such friends and acquaintances as desired
to visit him."
W. W. Cotton, attorney for Mr. and
Mrs. Savage, will file counter affidavits
showing that a friend of Foster's came to
see him one morning before he got up,
and that Mr. Foster was displeased to bo
called upon while he was still in bed, and
grieved about it This caused Mrs. Sav
age to remark that she would not admit
any one again in tho morning. It will bo
denied that Masons were refused admit
tance, and it will be claimed that San
born has a key to tho houso himself and
can let anybody elso in.
Defendants In Gambling1 Cascit Not
to Be Tried Immediately.
The gambling cases resulting from tho
raid made by Judge Hogue and Attorney
B. B. Beekman, about one month ago, will
not be tried In the State Circuit Court un
til Henry E. McGinn, attorney for tho
principal defendants, finishes his labors as
a State Senator. Judge Sears made this
ruling yesterday morning.
District Attorney Manning states that
he is prepared to proceed with the. trial.
and may ask Judge Sears this morning to
modify his ruling. The deputy District
Attorney suggested to the court yester
day that as Mr. McGinn is away, the
court might appoint counsel to take his
place and defend the case, but tho court
decided not to do such a thing, and held
that the defendants aro all at liberty on
their own recognizance, and aro therefore
not particularly inconvenienced because of
a month's postponement
Defendants Are Dissatisfied.
A motion to vacate the decree in tho
suit of Louisa Schwartz and Anna Ger-
hardt against their father, Martin Ger-
hardt was filed in Judge Sears' court
yesterday. The children sued their father
to recover money left them by relatives
in Germany, and the decree was in their
favor. The motion is based on tho ground
that at the trial the defendant offered no
testimony, because ho considered tho
plaintiffs had mado no case, and that
plaintiffs are now being allowed to sub
mit further evidence, which .cannot be
done after a decree has been declared.
