New TinitTEEN - Cent Stamps. The
Portland Postofllco has received a supply
of the new 13-cent stamps, which are very
nicely executed, and will no doubt bo
popular for paying postage on foreign let
ters. Tho stamps are the same size as
the old issue, and hav a finely engraved
portrait of the late President Benjamin
Harrison. The color Is a dark lavender.
and in addition to the words "United
States Postage" there is also a band with
the inscription "Series of 1901." and small
labels at the bottom wltn "1533 Benjamin
Harrison 1901." The peculiar value of the
stamp is made for foreign registration 5
rents for postage and S cents for registrar
tlon, making 13 cents in all. This is the
third of the new series sent out by the Bu
reau of Engraving and Printing at Wash
Ington, the first being a carmine. 2-cent
BtamD with a full-faced Stuart portrait
of Washington, and the second an S-cent
with a similar picture of Martha Wash
ington. The frame design is the same for
all values, and it will be but a short time
till a complete set from 1 cent to 13 will
have been issued.
President Eetes Leaves Todat.
George Estes, the president of tho United
Brotherhood of Railway Employes, who
has delivered several lectures in Port'
land recently, leaves this evening for San

Estes will go from there to the surround'

tour of the West, leaves for Seattle today.

neighborhood and by teamsters to be
worse now than ever before. There is an
elevated roadway there, on the deck of

InoNuoLDnns Arc Jceilakt. The Iron-
molders" Union gave a well-attended en
tertainment in Eagles' Hall on Saturday
evening. Tho members of the organiza
tion were in a Jubilant mood on account
of the realization of their fond hopes of
a nine-hour day. S. Morgan, probably the
oldest moldcr in the state, made the prin
cipal address of the evening. "Brothers."
said Mr. Morgan. "I remember the time
when there were only two of the craft in
Portland: now TO men belong to the union.
It is highly pleasing to any one Interested
in the growth of unionism to observe the
betterment of the conditions of the wage
earner, and it is my sincere wish that I
may live to Bee the day when work, rest
and amusement may be equally divided
and the labors of tho worklngman be bet
ter systematized, so that all these parts
pay a consistent relation to one another."
T. Jordon. formerly the foreman of tho
Willamette molding shop, echoed Mr. Mor
gan s words. A very pleasant programme
was conducted by T. Kennedy, to whom
the union voted their thanks at the close
of the entertainment.
Charged With Passing Bad Checks.
Charged with passing bad checks. James
M. Hcaley was yeiterday placed under
arrest. AI Sears, one of the proprietors
of the .Hotel Cactus, is in possession of a
bogus "check for J20 and made the com
plaint against him. Hcaley Is said to
have come to Portland at the time the
Eastern bankers were making their visit
here, and represented himself to be one
of them. He had a number of acquaint
ances ir the crowd, and by being familiar
with them created the Impression that no
must be all right. Accordingly, when he
presented a draft on his brother. John J.
Healey. who is connected with the Farm
ers' & Mechanics' "National Bank of Phila
delphia, Mr. Sears readily cashed It. A
few days ago the check was returned with
the statement that it could not be hon
ored. Mr. Hcaley was promptly placed
under arrest. He Is connected with prom
inent people in the East, and they will be
notified of his trouble.

yesterday sustained a broken leg and was
badly bruised up. Both of the cars were
loaded with men, but no one else was In'
Jured. The accident happened a short dis
tance from Salem. The section hands
were going home from their work on
handcars, and for some reason the front
car slowed up snddenly. Grunst was sit
ting on the front part of the car with his
legs hanging down. Tho rear car bad up
a good speed, and was not prepared to
stop ag suddenly as tho front one did.
Before Grunst was able to get his legs
out of the way they were caught between
the two cars and one of them broken. He
was taken at once to Good Samaritan
Hospital. He sustained no other injuries.

Overlooked His Gold Watch. Two

watch. Spencer lives at 70S Division

Twenty-first and Division streets was

gun at him and told him to throw up his
hands. The other then went through his

Routine Meeting or School Board.
As Herman Wittenberg had declared that
he would be too busy last evening to at

Education met yesterday afternoon in
stead of at its appointed hour. Routine
business only was transacted, the usual
number of bills being presented, while
teachers who had been tardy or absent
from their duties sent tho customary ex-
.cuso of the delayed cars, affairs which the
Board railroaded through faster than a
Legislature on the last day of the session.

Pathos, passion and realism shone last
night In tho splendid presentation of the
comedy-drama "Zaza" at the Marquam
Theater by Florenco Roberts and her com
pany. There was a good attendance and
many curtain recalls for Miss Roberts.
She made an Instantaneous success. Slnco
her last visit to Portland, about one year
ago. Miss Roberts comes back not only a
mature artist, but excelling in poetic in
terpretation. There is a beautiful finish to
her work. She wears stunning gowns. It
is a pleasure to listen to her distinct enun
Zaza" is adapted from the French of
Bcrton and Simon by tho famous play
wright David Belasco, and, in brief, tells
tho old story of a woman falling in love
with a man who is already married, it
has a distinct Paris atmosphere, but there
is nothing suggestive in the action or
lines. When the curtain arose on the
opening scene last njght, illustrating that
unknown world to a lay mind back of
the scenes of a provincial concert hall at
St. Etienne, it was at once seen that a
very complete presentation of tho play
was about to bo unfolded. There stood-
the man who makes the stage-thunder,
near tho creator of the stage-lightning,
and also the man who cleverly Imitates
with the aid of what appear to be black
ing-brushes the sound made by tho gallop
ing of horses. Tho concert-hall perform
era stand around In easy position. Just as
they are about to go on the stage. Tho
dressing-room of Zaza, the star, is also
on the stage, with the waltlngmaid pre
paring stage finery for her mistress. Then
Zaza suddenly walks In, theatrical, inso
lent, a dazzling vision, a conqueror. She
is a pagan to whom fruit from tho tree of
knowledge has not yet been given, tone
has eyes which do not see much beyond
tho music-hall life, the lovo of the mo
ment, vows easily made and yet more eas
ily broken. She Is the spoiled darling of
the vaudeville, to whom real love and all
that It means is a subject of derision.
It was positively a revelation to watch
the almost childish carelessness with
which Miss Roberts scattered her fine
raiment before sho wore her stage tinsel.
and yawned deliberately, as If the slow
ness of her maid Irritated her. Con
queror herself, she lords it over the dis
sipated Due do Brlssac (Howard Scott),
and acts llko a child revelling In a garden
of roses, plucking them at will, until her
master appears, Bernard Defresno (Lucius
Henderson). To win a bet, she schemes
to make him invite her out to supper,
and all the tine allurements of a woman
gifted as a charmer wero summoned to
entrap the victim. Now it was the subtle
temptation of a perfume, and then a
caress that was not a caress. A false
step would have ruined the illusion, yet
Miss Roberts led her victim on, step by
step, with suggestion and infinite tact.

It Is a new Zaza that appears as Du

Jealous woman suddenly arises when she
becomes suspicious of her adorer's visit
to Paris. It is a strong scene in which
Cascart, her singing partner, played by
William Terrange. and formerly by car-
lvlo Moore, awakens her suspicions as to
lDufTesne's faithfulness. Sufficient com
edy is supplied by tne reauy clover wors
of a drunken aunt. Rose Lonno (Georgle
Woodthorpe). One of tho prettiest situ
ations in the entire piay Is the action la
which Zaza visits Dufresne s home, reaiiy
learns that he Is a married man, and
meets his little girl, To-To, intelligently
played by Ollle Cooper. Tho latter Is not
that hysterical. Impossible creation on the
stage, a little Eva. She speaks and rea
sons like an every-day, healthy child, and
It is a pleasuro to watcn her work.
Naturally the strongest action is in the
quarrel scene, when Zaza, dressed in her
silver and black gown, effusively wel
comes back her lover and they cat din'
ner together, before she opens on him
like a fury, telling an that sho has dis
covered that he has a wife and child liv

height when she found but that Du
fresne really loves his wife and child, but

The setting of the last scene is excel

characters. "Zaza" will be repeated to

Care (or Race Prejudice.
NEW YORK, Feb. 9. Dr. Newell Dwight
mint, niemng in his sermon yesterday
to race hatred in America, said: "If
twice a year we could bring the South

South, they would soon cease trying to

GRESHAM IS THRIVING.
Xevr Railroad Attracts Jlercantlle
RHP5HAV. Feb. 9. (Special.) The new
railroad is attracting attention to Gresh
am. and it Is reported that eeveral new
business houses will bo opened during the
coming Summer. One Is to be a depart
ment store, while a furniture store and a
hardware store are among the possibili
ties. W. H. Hamilton, a prosperoue
farmer, will soon open a mercantile es
tablishment. There Is an active demand for building
sites and none are for sale, but J. H. Metz
ger will open up a row of blocks on Cleve
land avenue, which will proDaDiy ve soia
at once, oa they ore In a good location.
The denot site has not been seiectea
yet, owing to the unwillingness of one
property-owner to give right of way for
tho extension of Cleveland avenue. There
Is now a probability that the depot will
bo located on the Hlenen tract, west oi
town, as the vard facilities are good there
and a roadway from the main thorough-
faro would cost considerably less man at
any other point.
Citizens of the town recently neia a
meeting and appointed a committee to
confer with the railroad company and
learn the latter"s Intentions In regard to
tho matter, but up to this time- there has
been no action.
To Stndy Potatoes.
John Long has gone to California to
study the potato question. He Is a large
grower of that very profitable vegetable
and Is considerably Interested in the de
terioration of the Burbank variety during
the past three years. Mr. Long will prob
ably bring back some choice eeed potatoes
do it Is evident that the tuber is running
out In this section.
Several prominent growcw have ex
pressed ' the opinion that the principal
cause of deterioration In the Burbank
variety Is to be found in the fact that
too many small potatoes were used for
eeed during the past three years. For
that length of time prices of potatoes have
been very high each Spring and growers
could not resist the temptation to sell off
their best ones and plant those which
were unsalable. This has been done for
three seasons straight with dire results
and is probably the -true reason why Bur
banks are not up to their usual standard.
Exchange of seed is advocated by some
and it is known that seed raised on tho
low lands of the Columbia Slough will
ralso great crops on the up lands; hence.
there are several farmers who will not
plant their own seed this year, neither
win they go to California for it, but, will
get the best to be had from the low lands,
and they hope thereby tQ redeem the lost
prestige of their greatest sourco of wealth.
Ties Going- Up.
Since the recent rise in prices of lumber
the various tie mills in this section have
been trying to get more for their ties,
At present they are getting 27 cents
apiece for them at Troutdalo. They now
demand 30 cents and will probably get it.
as tho railroads are taking all they can
get and ore calling for more. Shipments
from here go as far East as the Missouri
River on several roads, and at this season
of tho year there ore plenty of cars
available and tho shipments could more
than keep pace with tho supply.; Tho ln-
ausiry is waning in tnis section ana mills
are moving further back into heavy tim
ber. The cost of hauling is greater than
herctoforo and the mlllmen expect better
