EMPIRE THEATER Twelfth and Morrison, vaudeville. SHIELDS' PARK Thirteenth and Washing ton, vaudeville. Doctor or law Settles Disputes. The other members o the law firm of Dolph, Mallory. Simon & Gearln, were much pleased and gratified, when a short time ago John 5L Gearlijte alma mater bestowed upon him the degree of "IAj. D." doctor of laws In recognition of their appreciation of the very excellent address he delivered at the graduating exercises there Messrs. Dolph, Mallory and Simon are not now so pleased with the degree as they used to be for they are too often made to feel the weight of it. In a law office where all kinds of Important documents are drawn up, there often arise discussions as to the proper or best way of wording a phrase or sentence, or the selection of a word to be used to convey a certain idea or meaning and all the members of the firm become Involved in such discussions which sometimes arise over small points like the proper spelling of a word. Here tofore all the members of this firm stood on an even footing in such discussions, but now when there appears to be dan ger of their being drawn out to any length, Mr. Gearin gives his opinion in, set phrase and by pointing to his III. D. degree hanging on the wall puts an end to the discussion, for, of course, there is nothing more to be said, as none of the other members of the firm have any claim to a double L at the end of their names. Trees Fali, in March op Improvement. The destruction of a large and hand some elm shade tree in front of the Groomes' property on Salmon street be? tween Fifth and Sixth because the ten ants complained that the shade made the house dark and gloomy, marks a new era in the destruction of shade trees. There fire mapy large shade trees on the block of street mentioned, more than are need ed for ornament, and more than are good lor the comfort or health of residents on the south side of the street. It. is safe to say that more of them will dis appear before long. The street and any space between houses and the side walk is completely embowered, and ex cept on very bright sunshiny days the shade Is gloomy and depressing. At the season of the fall of the leaf, the condition of the sidewalks is shocking, and If an attempt is made to keep them in decent order a great amount of labor must, be expended continuously for a long "ttaie. The march of improvement will probably soon cause the removal of the huge locusts which stand Inside the Una of the old Estes property at the southwest corner of Salmon and Fifth, and other trees on the block which are too large for shade trees on 'a narrow street There are many such trees in that neighborhood, but the elm just cut was the handsomest of them all. Fashions in Flour Sacks. Shiploads and shiploads of flour are shipped abroad from this clty in ordinary cotton sacks. Theseas discovered by a citizen travel ing 'through England and Ireland on a bicycle, go to make undergarments for the women of the poorer classes as he saw the manufactured articles still bearing the legend of a Portland mill hanging on the clothes lines. A stroll through a sack factory will, however, show that flour sacks are made of drill and duck, as well as of muslin, and that cargoes for some countries have to be enclosed in twilled coffee gunnies or sacks of Hessian twill, each containing two of tho ordinary sacks. This all depends on the i region to which the cargo Is going, and j the time of y$ar It "Is to reach its des- i tlnatlon, as the sacks must be suited for ladles wear which Is In fashion at that season. When duck suits are being worn the sacks are of ducking. If the cargo Is going to Patagonia the gunnies and Hes sian twill Inside sacks are" put over the cotton ones, for the climate in Patagonia Is cool, and- the women wear heavy clothes. It is a little trying on the Hour manufacturers to have to look through fashion magazines to see what sort of sacks they shall pack their floor in, but the managers take delight In do ing this and hence they command the market of the world. Pedestrians Must Take to the Street. The crowd of pedestrians thronging the sidewalks In the commis sion district on Front street Saturday was so great and so continuous that the porters of the commission men weie sometimes hampered in pushing trucks along the narrow passage left between the barrels and boxes lining both edges of tho walks. This was looked upon by some of the com mission men as Interfering with their business, and thev are talkinc of ore sentlng a petition to the council asking mat pedestrians oe connned to the street Prohably few will remonstrate against such a scheme as usually It Is safer and more pleasant to travel on the street than the sidewalk in that section The wilted, withered, indigestible and unwholesome green cantaloupes from Fresno which nobody will buy or can eat which obstruct the sidewalks there will soon have to go, to the crematory probably, and as there are piles and piles of this trash, their removal will leave more room on the sidewalks. Great Demand fob Blackberries. "Wild Dlackberrles, the best of all berries, were brought to market Saturday in con siderable quantities In tin buckets. These "berries are so juicy that they cannot oe nanaiea in boxes like other berries. They sold at 12 cents per pound and went off like hot cakes, for there. nrA many who can afford to pay that price but more who cannot The only thing in the berry line more exnenslv in the market this year, were the earliest strawberries and a small lot of genuine old-fashioned Jow bush huckleberries which were marked 15 cents per pound. These and wild blackberries used to be plentiful, but the improvement of farms has made both scarce. It is strange that some one does not try growing them in a natural way on a large scale. They re quire no cultivation, no pruning, and no looking after, 'except to see that the bushes are let alone and they yield well, and the berries bring more than culti vated ones. It would seem that a suc cess might be made in growing them. Reception to Dr. and Mrs. Black burn. There will be a formal reception given Dr; Alexander Blackburn and wife, of the First Baptist Church, at S o'clock this evening. Short addresses will be made by Dr. J. H. Lathrop, Dr. House, Bev. H. Jj. Boardman, -and Rev. C M. Bliss. Excellent music will be rendered by Mr. Belcher, Mr. Zan, Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Sheldon. Light refreshments will be served. All friends of Dr. Black burn and wife and especially his G. A. R. comrades are invited. Death op Samuel D. Eldridqe. Sam uel D. Eldridge, formerly a prominent member of the Chicago Board of Trade and Chicago Stock Exchange, died at the Good Samaritan Hospital, Sunday morn ing at 3 o'clock. Mr. Eldrirdge was a hrother of Zoeth S. Eldridge who was here in official capacity as United States Bank Examiner In connection with the closing of the Oregon National Bank. The funeral service will be held at the chapel of Edward Holman & Co. at 3 o'clock to day. Cut This Out. Our sales floor ana city office will continue to be at 47 First street phone. Main 52.

Max Smith's Savoy Coffee House, 155 Fifth, is famous for its delicious coffee. His Fad Is Gardening. Roses are com ing into prominence again, the tea roses taking the lead. William Barn hart yesterday cut a large houquet of the finest roses he has raised or ever seen this year, and Dr. B. P. CardweU, to whom he presented them, said they were the finest lot of roses he had seen this year. Mr. Barnhart has found that he has more roses nd better ones by 'keep ing them well cut away and so his friends are in luck and his roses excel most In a short time his hybrids will be bloom ing and then he will have many magni ficent ones. His style of gardening shows what can, be done in a quarter block, 100x100 feet in Portland, and how easily this might be made a rose city. Ha, has an eight-room house, a little "back from the street and near the south side of the tract He has two large cherry trees, a plum tree and an apple tree, which yield more fruit than he can use. These were planted along the west side of the tract by the orig inal owner of the tract some 20 years ago. In the narrow strip' on the south side of the house he has a couple of peach trees trained on the side of the house, and a hedge of blackberry bushes along the fence. There are some ripe peaches on the trees now, and there were more blackberries on' the bushes than he had use for. At the. east end of the house is a large hydrangea, a fig tree, proba bly the largest In the city, and a large snowball tree, and on the remainder of the tract north of the house he has be tween 500 and C00 rose bushes and climb ers, forming probably the best collection in the city and without doubt the most productive. There are some other plants on the ground, among them Is a vine of jasmine, which loads the air with per fume. He has two fine large yuccas, a species of cactus sometimes called "Span ish bayonet," which send up large flower stalks bearing a great number of white flowers rather striking In appearance, but they never fully expand. As there are no stems to them they cannot well be used in making bouquets and so are not in favor with florists. It Is doubtful If so many trees, plants and flowers can be found in any similar tract in the city. His Sobriety Suspected. A resident of South Second street whose character for sobriety is one of his most conspicu ous virtues Is troubled with a weakness or fluttering of the heart occasionally when he overexerts himself, which Is not often. A day or so ago he was putter ing about a rather dilapidated sidewalk In front of. the quarter block on which he resides, fixing It so as to avoid hav ing to build a new one. The tempft-a-ture being rather tropical, he soon began to feel -a nervous twitching of his heart strings, anr a feeling of general lassi tude. He remembered that the doctor had told him to resort to stimulants to overcome such attacks, and that nothing was so beneficial In cases of heart fail ures as a glass of good whisky. There being no saloon in that neighborhood, that he knew of, he repaired to a drug store nearby and stating his condition asked for a glass of whisky. The drug gist eyed him critically and said he could not let him have "any whisky, as he ap peared to be under tho Influence of liquor. The sufferer was astonished and disgusted and said he had not even seen whisky for a month, and at once re paired to another drug store, where he was certain he could obtain relief. This druggist wasted no words on him, but said: "You cannot have any whisky here; you are two-thirds full now." He says he will have to fall back on his weak lung, as he did when In a blockaded train at the Cascades, and Ed Lyon wanted him to get out and help plow a track for the engine through several miles of snow drifts, on account of which he was christened "One-Lunged Stansberry." He prefers this to being told he is two thirds drunk, when he hasn't touched a trop. City to Have a Few Good Streets. The condition of the streets inthe busi ness and central districts of the city will be in such good condition In two or three weeks that old residents will not known them. Washington street will be in first class form clear out to- the en trance of the City Park, and some paral lel streets ought to be, and probably will bo, Improved from Front to Twenty third, so that the heavy travel to the West side of town need not be confined to a street -with car tracks on it Ford street will be Improved from Washington to Park avenue with bituminous maca dam and tho Improvement will probably De extended to the east entrance of the City Park. This will give an oppor tunity to test the qualities or bituminous macadam which has not yet been tried here but which is in favor In many East ern cities. Tenth and Seventh street are In good condition. Third and Fourth and Morrison streets are now being made as good as new. First street is to have sound pavement of wood blocks, and cords of treated wood blocks are now stacked along Yamhill street from Fourth to Second. The railway tracks there are about put In good shape with heavy raus, so in a very few days, that section of Xamhill street will be In fine order The fine appearance of the streets men- tionea will induce property owners to have others put in order, for as a city omciai says, people accustomed to bad streets do not realize what effect eood streets in front of property have in in creasing the value of it Peacemaker Comes off Best. A rather violent altercation going on- in a cigar store, yesterday, in which the deal er, a customer and several SDeatators were Involved, attracted the attention of a missionary-looking man passing. He stepped Inside, hoping to be able to set- tie tne dispute and pacify the dlsnutants. He found that all the rag-chewing was on account of the customer having won two li-cent cigars piavlnrr a nickel in-the-slot machine, and had received only four 5-cent cigars In place of them wnen he had asked to have them changed. The dealer said they only gave four of these cigars in a winning of two 12-cent cigars ana otner dealers gave the same. The customer, who is a machine fiend. said he always got five all over town. So there was a "misunderstanding" some where, and a row was on which the mis sionary man could not stop, and about everyone wno came along was Interested. and took a hand in the wordy fray. The would-be peacemaker gave the customer a rough deal, for not having more hon esty and more sense than to play at the machine which was ruining the youth of the land by cultivating In him a taste for gambling, a wicked hankering to get sometning ror notning, etc Neither the dealer nor the customer was pleased with this sort of talk and the row went on. Finally the missionary got hold of one of the four cigars given In place of 5 cents. saying they were worth all that had been given for them, and went to smoking it. inus Dreaxing up the seance. Seeker After. Knowledge Baffled. it is difficult to obtain much reliable in formation in regard to eleetrlclrv trical matters for so many points con nected with these subjects even the em ployees of electric companies are igno rant One of them was met on the street a day or two ago with a contraption of some kind In his hand, and on being aajiea u n were an electric motor, replied "no, it is an electric meter." Being then asked what was the difference between the two, he said, "One brings in more money tnan tne other." When asked wmcn Drought m the most he said. "Blanked, of I know; it depends UDon circumstances." The seeker after knowl edge abandoned the pursuit at this oolnt for he had before experienced the diffi culty of increasing information from one who did not know anything. Street Cars Should Have Connino Towers. Manager Fuller of the Port land Railway Company, has received . a letter signed "Passenger" giving him a suggestion as to how to treat hold-up men who undertake to rob cars. His advice is to have a bullet-proof steel tower on the top of cars provided with port holes all around, from which to shoot the robbers as they are leaving the cars. Do tou enjoy good coffee; then go to Max Smith's, 166 Fifth. No Hurst About Moving. The Port land Cracker Company has been making plans for Treating the Snell Heltschu building, about September 1. to allow the Postoftlce to be moved in there while the addition to the Postoftlce building Is toe ing built The fact that no one appears to be In any hurry about securing the contract for this extension makes It ap pear provable to the Cracker Company that It is not likely to be required to move out so soon. Delays are dangerous and there has been delay enough In connec tion with the proposed extension to the Postoftlce, causing some to think it will never be completed. Once the Postoftlce Is moved into tho Snell Heltschu building it will be likely to remain there a long time. Todat at Free Baths. The schedule at the Portland Public Baths today fol lows: From 9 A. M. to 12, boys free; 1:30 P. M. to 3:30, boys free; 3:30 P. M. to 6, men and . women, 25 cents admission; 7 to 8:30, men and women, 25 cents admis sion. The baths have been opened to women on account of the great demand made upon the management Tho same custom prevails In other cities. Concert bt Park Band. Several thou sand people listened to a delightful con cert yesterday 'afternoon given by Brown's Park Band at City Park, and the differ ent selections were well played and re ceived with every mark of appreciation. It is gratifying to the many friends of this band to know that it is steadily im proving in practice, and that its popular ity is Increasing. , Uncalled-For suits, coats, vests, trous ers and baseball suits will be sold re gardless of cost Coopey the Tailor, 83 Third street, corner Stark, upstairs.

Tho walls of the classrooms are being tinted, wood work will be revarnished, and the entire building will be painted. The Stephens will be a neat clean building when school opens in the Fall. The difference between the old and new portions will hardly be noticeable when the painters havo finished their work. Fnneral of Wallace afaKenxle. The funeral of Wallace McKenzle, who died from the effects of Injuries received in an elevator accident, will be held this afternoon from the home of his grand father, H. Skogren, 229 Grand avenue, at 2 o'clock. Rev. W. E. Randall, of the Central Baptist Church, at the morning service, said: "Our hearts are shocked and heavy. While the Sunday school was enjoying a picnic, one of our noble boys, Wallace McKenzle, was taken to the bet ter land. Manly and energetic, Wallace desired to take a better position, which terminated In the fatal accident The sympathy of all goes out to the stricken family, especially to the mother of tho boy in her affliction." Mlnthorn Water for Milvrankle. At the next meeting of the Mllwaukie Council, J. L. Johnson will submit a writ ten proposition to erect water works and supply the people of Mllwaukie with water from Mlnthorn Springs. It will be a grav ity system, and the purity of the supply is not questioned. There has been agita tion of tho water question at Mllwaukie for sume time. It commenced when It was discovered that the well from which the large public school Is supplied is im pure. This was ascertained by J. W Graslce, who had an analysis of the water made, when It was found beyond all ques tion that tho water was a menace to tho health of the pupils. The cost of an ample water supply would be small.

An effort was made to get Harmony Lodge, which meets In Upper Alblna, to move farther northward and build a hall, thus doing away with the movement for a new lodge at Woodlawn, but this did not succeed. FOOL ROCKS A BOAT. With. Woman Companion, Takes a Plunge In Willamette. The good steamer Hassalo and a scow laden to the water's edge with sand got even with the smart fool that wanted to "see the boat rock" yesterday afternoon by dumping the "Fool" and his Innocent feminine companion into the gurgling Willamette River. The "Fool" hired boat No. 10 from D. C, Merrill, and he started cut for a row, When he got to Stark street he met the nassaio ana ner scow plowing up stream Tho steamer and the scow plowed the river into a deep furrow, and the waves rolled high on either side, almost to the breaking point The "Fool" thought It would be a jolly lark to have the rollers rock the boat so he steered the light craft toward the rolling waves. This was all right as far as it went but the "Fool" handled the boat so that it was kissed a-broadslde with one of the Hassalo's highest waves, and the next thing the "Fool knew was that he and his com panlon were floundering In the water, and he was howling for help at the top of his voice. As luck would have it the boat in which the pair had been seated did not drift .ft er capsizing, and ris they rose to the sur face both the woman and the "Fool managed to grasp an end. The cries for help reached the ears of some men who were rowing In a skiff, and they lost no time in getting over to the overturned boat With considerable difficulty, both the man and the woman were hauled Into the skiff and taken ashore. They thanked their rescuers and made off, and by the timo that Merrill reached the scene they had disappeared. Mr. Merrill did not know .the names of the couple. He was .glad to get his boat back safely. GRAXULATED EYELIDS. Murine Eye Remedy cures this and other Eyo troubles, makes wmuc eyes strong. AT THE THEATERS SklelaV Vaadevllle.

People scrambled to get Into Shields' park last night and when overy seat was occupied by an audience of 3000, about 500 willing patrons were turned away for lack of room. But that did not daunt several athletic young men, over a dozen of them insisting on or namenting the north fence. "That's right boys. You who are on the fence are as welcome as those who have paid their money," observed Mr. Shields, sarcas tically. The show -is a very good one. and shines In novelties. It is of top-liner quality. Campbell Brothers are the particular stars, and their clever work drew rounds bf applause. Better hand-to-hand work in catching tennis rackets, tennis balls, and electric clubs, has rarely been seen here. At one period the air seemed to be a mass of glittering light when the brothers threw their clubs at each other, and deftly caught them on the wing. While blindfolded, one of the brothers engages in bag-punching, amid Intense darkness, and the only lights that shone came from the diamond studs among the audience. May and Baby Owen are so clever and their 'work is so enjoyable that their comedy easily tops the list The little boy dresses as a tramp of the Evans Hoev tvbe. his mustache and whiskers were the envy of all present "Who are you, anyway?" asked his mother. Oh,, answered the little man, "I'm Mr. Wil liams of Portland. I've wanted to visit this city for a long time to practice medi cine here the physicians take life so easily." He also sings a funny song: That's tho Kind of a Boy itou Are." Wise and Milton's popularity was in creased by their splendid act and Wise started the fun by a mock lecture to young women, and by singing a parody on "Asleep On the Deep." His partner danced and sang herself into favor, and made a hit with "Just Because I Hate to Get Up Early In the Morning." Bolll and Bolll wore dazzling costumes, and the man dressed like a Spanish cavalier of old, with spurs, sword, white mantle, etc. The two singers havo good voices, and they excelled in two scenes from Verdi's "II Trovatorc."

COMING ATTRACTIONS. Ncvr Bill at Empire Tonight. Tonight for' an opening bill for this week, the Empire Theater presents, among Its varied features, the highest salaried singing act on tho vaudeville stage. Lillian Leslie Is the cantatrlce whose voice Is her fortune. Music-lovers will go to the Empire to hear Miss Leslie sing; pursuers of the artistic will go to see her face, while tho whole feminine world, musical, artistic and otherwise, will be at the theater to study her gowns. Miss Leslie has played all the big houses of the East, and Is direct from the Or pheum Circuit . Next to this great singer on the posters Is Allen J. Shaw, the Australian king of coins. Mr. Shaw is -a magician at manip ulating money, who can make a sliver dollar do anything. Marsh Craig, tho clever, convolutlng contortionist, will mako tho Empire audi ences believe that h,e is truly a human lizard. This act unlike many acrobatic turns, is most attractive and entertaining. The Juggling of Christy and Willis can not be too highly commended. Christy Is a Joking, jesting, Jovial juggler, who can mako a cannon ball, two umbrellas and one soubrette perform such antics that the audience roars with laughter until he leaves the stage. And Miss Willis, the other partner in the sketch, can really dance. She has not picked up a few steps by watching good performers, but Is a carefully trained dancer. Mclntyre and Primrose, with conversa tional comedy, have been retained for an other week, and will produce an amazing ly mirthful sketch. PERSONAL MENTION. C. E.
