OREGON DAY CELEBRATED
fCOODHBX CARNIVAL RECEIVES
Gorernor Chamberlain, 'Senators
Pulton, and Mitchell and Jndge
Jolin F. Caples Give Addresses.
Governor George E. Chamberlain. "Unit
ed States Senators C. W. Pulton and John
H. Mitchell and Judge John F. Qaples
were among the guests of honor and de
livered addresses at the Woodmen of the
"World Carnival last night.
Yesterday was Oregon day, and a large
attendance crowded the grounds. Queen
Emma I occupied the throne in the
Stadium, and the four speakers, H. L.
Pittock, President F. E. Beach, of the
Board of Trade, General Summers and
several other prominent men occupied po
sitions of honor near the throne.
The guests were brought from the Port
land Hotel to the carnival grounds in the
Queen's carriages, the Queen and her
maids accompanying the procession. The
party was escorted by George "Washing
ton Degree Camp, "W. O. W.
The warm evening seemed to agree
with the performers, for the entertain
ment, while the same in detail as that of
last week, was exceptionally good, re
ceiving applause from the guests as well
as the audience.
The little Japs, as usual, made a de
cided hit with their clever acrobatic work
and juggling. Fowler brothers, the hand
balancers and equilibrists, were also re
ceived with marks of favor.
Governor Chamberlain was introduced
by President J. AV. Morrow, of the Car
nival, and made a few brief remarks.
"It is. Indeed, fitting that this order
should devote one day to the State of
Oregon," said the chief executive. "It is
an evidence of the patriotism of the
Woodmen, and shows that they are and
have been taking an interest in the state.
In fact, the "Woodmen have been among
the foremost in building up and making
the state what it is. Occupying the posi
tion as I do, I will unhesitatingly say
that Oregon Is the best state in the
Union, and has the bravest men and the
prettiest women in the world. The mem
ler of this great order have made a de
cided success of their carnival, as well as
everything that they have undertaken,
and there is no reason why the order shall
not prosper ip. the future, as I know it
Judge John F, Caples was next Intro
duced. "I don't know but that I shall
say a few more words than Governor
Chamberlain did," said the Judge. "It
gives me great pleasure to meet so many
of the good people of the State of Oregon
tonight." Continuing, he spoke of the
iewis and Clark Centennial, wishing that
every one present would take an active
part In helping the fair along and that
they would live to witness the Exposition.
""There is no nobler class of men in the
world than Woodmen." continued the
speaker. "The very name signifies what
they are. They are next to nature and
are always the first to build up a coun
try, clearing the land which produces
the grains from which e live. Have
you ever thought of the glory of the
woods and timber? The grandest trees
that the world has ever produced grow
Tight here on this Pacific Coast." Con
tinuing at some length about Oregon's
resources and making some highly com
plimentary remarks regarding the Wood
men, Judge Caples referred to Governor
Chamberlain's speech. "The Governor
thinks he said something new about Ore
gon and American women," said the
Judge. "Why, I knew that before the
country was born. Our women can cope
with and surpass in beauty any women in
the world." Then lie turned his thoughts
to Portland and Oregon again. "Wo can
stretch our hands across Into Washing
ton, to Seattle, Spokane and Tacoma,
and say 'Go it and get there, and as soon
as you can, for we will be there pretty
Boon and will get so far ahead of you
that you will never catch sight of our
shadow.' " Then the Judge paid another
dividend of compliments that brought the
crimson to the cheeks of the blushing
Queen and her maids.
A fitting tribute was paid to Pope Leo
by the speaker, and met with the appro
bation of his audience.
"Let us have three cheers for Ore
gon," said the Judge, and they had them,
and bowing to Her Majesty in acknowl
edgement of a bouquet, the speaker took
his seat amid a storm of applause.
The crowd espied Senator Fulton, and
In response to calls he made a few re
marks. He said that there were no com
pliments left for him to pay the ladies,
as the Governor and Judge Caples had
exhausted the r supply. "I have cam
paigned with them," he said, "and heard
them say the same things throughout
Washington and even to the Indian girls
at Chemawa. I am opposed to a Hepublic
an form of government since I have seen
your most gracious Queen, and I think
that monarchies '"are about the proper
Senator Mitchell then responded to a
call from the audience. While the Sen
ator said he could think of nothing nice
to say of the Oregon women that had not
already been said, he did say that
throughout Africa and other places he had
lolled to see their equal for beauty.
PASSING OF SCHWAB.
Overtaxed, lie Ik n Good Mechanic,
but Not a Financier.
WESTON. Or., July 14. (To the Edi
tor.) Tire editorial in The Sunday Ore
Ionian on "Napoleon Turned Gambler,"
jn which the downfall of Charles M.
Schwab is discussed, is a careful analysis
of the man as viewed from a layman's
standpoint. There is little or no dopbt
that Schwab is, or was, a man of defec
tive moral character, and that, to a cer
tain extent, moral weakness contributed
to his failure. From the standpoint of
en alienist, however, the deductions pre
sented In The Oregonlan are, at least in
part, mistaken. Mr. Schwab does not
.owe his downfall directly to gambling and
speculation or to inherent (lmmorallty. He
owes it rather to the fact that he was an
overestimated and overtaxed man, not
big enough for the position he held. Ris
ing, within a few years, from obscurity to
c place of great Importance: burdened
with responsibilities for which few men
are fiUed; struggling with problems with
which, handicapped as he was by inheri
tance and early environment, he could
hope to cope only through the exer
cise of almost superhuman effort; con
stantly within the unaccustomed limelight
of publicity; with Immense power for good
or ill Schwab's mind proved unequal to
the weight it had to bear, and failed him
In the crucial test.
Air. facnwaD spent Ms earlier years
learning the trade of Ironmaker. He was
a mechanic, but a mechanic of ability. He
advanced rapidly, and soon was master
of his trade. To become master of his
tradesmen seems but a logical step, and
had he remained there, his name wpuld
have gone down to posterity, perhaps, as
a great maker of steel. But the oppor
tunities of such a field were too narrow
for a mind as active as Schwab's and so
he sought advance andxaccepted It as rap
idly as It came within his reach. Sudden
ly the great steel trust was formed, i
president was -needed, and Schwab, capa
ble, willing, energetic, Industrious Schwab,
appealed to the magnates as the man for
the place. They failed to recognize the
fact that Schwab's mind was the mind of
a mechanic, and not of a financier, and
they placed within his care powers and
responsibilities such as only the mind ac
customed from early life to association
with financial problems could hope to bear
with impunity. Hopeful, sanguine, sue
cessful, Schwab, little realizing his unfit
ness to care for the prize when once he
v4" it. grasped eagerly the gift the mag.
nates bestowed, upon him, and from a
master mechanic, well - and - favorably
known within his own trade, but obscure
without, leaped under the limelight, and
for a time became the central figure on
the stage, on whom Its rays were con
Elated with his success, drunk with the
Joy that comes only to men of expensive
temperament even at such times, he may
have paused for a brief moment to In
quire as to the why and wherefore of it
all. Victory was his", and in his self-sufficiency
he could see but one reason for It
all. That reason lay within himself. It
was his own mind, his own strength, his
own triumphant ego, to which he owed
his advance. To no other source, such as
luck or Providence, or, whisper It softly,
the possible necessity of a scapegoat to
shield the magnates in time of need,
could he ascribe the great achievement.
His mind, overcome with his own success,
elated and delirious, conjured wild and
reckless dreams for the future. Having
tasted the delightful nectar of publicity,
he must needs have other draughts from
the same cup. And Schwab drank deeply.
First, it was as the gambler at Monte
Carlo that notoriety was obtained. Other
doings followed rapidly. From the quiet,
attentive, business man he became the
lavish notorletj'-seeker with whose acts
every one was kept familiar. He must
build the finest mansion in America,
equipping it like the palace In an Arabian
Night's dream, and when not busy with
his personal conduct, his possessions, real
and imaginary, were constantly foisted
ypon an inquisitive and willing public
PASTOR OF FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH GIVEN PUBLIC
Notice In alf he did the dominating de
sire to do greater things than any one
else, even though the deed were in Itself
of' trivial . Importance, unworthy of the
serious consideration of the man and the
position he held. Magnitude was the es
sential characteristic of his spendthrift
acts and plans. To risk larger sums, in
gambling, to have better things than any
other, was his tendency, ameliorated at
times by brief paroxysms of self-control,
possibly under the lash of public or offi
cial criticism, only to break out, with re
newed vigor, in some totally unlooked-for
quarter. All things were so'ught and done
on the grand scale, and to the Inquiring
alienist, the grandeur of his proceedings
Instantly suggests the probability of acts
emanating from a mind whose thoughts
were abnormally texpansive and badly
governed. His conduct indicates that
Schwab suffered from mistaken concep
tions of his own importance, which, be
ginning as the simple "swelled head,"
finally ceased to be controlled, and from
the illusions based upon an egotistic in
terpretation of his infallibility, rapidly
gave place to the distinct delusions of an
expansive type, which, owing to his
wealth and standing, he was able to
gratify without undue attention being
called to their origin. Other men, it Is
true, have been governed by the same
desire for greatness, but Schwab's acts
were not the rational acts, consistent with
'his own life history, which mark the san
ity of their impulses and deeds. In other
words, Schwab suffered from the charac
teristic "delusions of grandeur the
classic symptom of that particular dis
ease commonly known as paresis, from
which many another overworked and
pleasure-loving mind has lost its hold
upon Itself. His acts, after hi rise In the
world, were inconsistent with him In his
previous life, and simply indicate the fail
ure of his brain to rise to the responsibil
ities of the new life. The overburdened
mind failed, and the capable, aspiring. In
telligent, master workman became the
poor, unfortunate failure, the paretic
Schwab. Gambling succeeded rather than
preceded his mental breakdown, which
was characteristic in the suddenness of
its onset, following a great and unaccus-
tomed intellectual burden, and, increas
Ing as the disease made Inroads Into the
brain and mind of the overestimated me
chanic, who, losing more and more re
straint upon himself, sank lower and
lower Into the mire of his ill-advised, un
happy schemes, until their failure ex
posed him and them to his too confid
ing dupes, and to the world at large.
Impressed with, the lay analysis of
Schwab and the lesson It was designed
to teach, the writer wishes to place before
Oregonlan readers what he believes Is the
more correct explanation of the downfall
of this Important man.

Ernest Pohl yesterday commenced suit
against v. iiashek to obtain possession
of ten acres of land and to have a deed
set aeide. The land was purchased in
February, 1891. from M. G. Griffin for

Pohl, the mother; Ernest Pohl, and Annie
Jourdan, his sister. Mrs. Pohl died on

Dr. Stephen S. Wise Lectures on "Su
GLADSTONE PARK, July 20. (Special.)
"Superstition to a large 62gree Is
created from Influence, misunderstood,
that Is exerted, by each and every
church," declared Rabbi Stephen S. Wise,
of Portland, who delivered his lecture on
"Superstitions," tonight. "To an extent
superstition Is the preacher of the
church," continued Rabbi Wise In discuss
ing his subject. "Each and every church
Is creating superstition unless It empha
sizes that prayer, baptism, the church
aid tho synagogue are outward symbols
of religion." The speaker was glad that
belief in a personal devil and an actual
hell is waning and suggested true religion
coupled with knowledge as the agency
with which to combat and dethrone King
Superstition. Being tho product of lr
rellgion the speaker Insisted that it can
only be treated through religion.
"Superstition differs from a prejudice
in that the latter Implies an absence of
reason, while the former involves the
misuse or abuse of reason,' he said.
Superstition was credited with being the
mother pf two of the greatest sciences,
viz: Chemistry and astrology. Rabbi Wise
proceeded to ridicule the many trivial
suDerstitious beliefs -with which neonle.
including many of the most intelligent in
dividuals, are possessed. He denounced
and characterized as "abominations" the
practice of clairvoyants, astrologers and
fortune-tellers. He deplored the remark-
able hold superstitious beliefs are getting
on Intelligent people in fell walks of life.
In presenting his lecture. Rabbi Wise
subdivided his text into three classifica
tions, viz: Superstition of the baby.
superstition of the child and superstition
of our maturity.
Preceding the lecture Miss Marguerite
Longacre. of Sycamore, 111., gave a de

Ten Pianos at
Woodmen Carnival Proposition
' INVESTIGATE THIS
IT WILL PAY YOU
Alfen& Gilbert-RamaKer Co.
"We realize we are a little out of the way
for visitors to the Carnival, and as an ex
tra inducement to have them call and see
our tine line of pianos and the matchless
bargains we are offering at this time, we
have concluded to make the following
proposition: Each day during the Carni
val we will make a special reduction of
$35 on one piano only, of any piano you
may select.. If the purchaser; is accom
panied by a Woodman, and in that event
the customer will be entitled to 525 and
J10 will go to the camp with which the
"Woodman Is connected for any purpose
they may see fit. Remember, we are mak
ing sweeping reductions on every piano in
the house at this time, which means more
piano value for your money than you
could possibly obtain elsewhere, and this,
with the $35 inducement, should bring an
early customer each day. Here are the
prices we are naming:
$450 pianos now $3S6
$400 pianos now..: 324
375 pianos now 296
350 pianos now 2S4
325 pianos now 245
300 pianos now 23S
275 pianos now 224
pianos now 195
As stated before, we have to dispose ot
a large number of pianos before we move
into our new building, which is being
erected for us at the corner of Sixth and
Morrison streets, where we will have the
finest, largest and most up-to-date music
store in the Pacific Northwest. All pianos
sold on our easy-payment plan of $6. $3,
$10 and $15 per month, and all contracts
held by us, thereby securing safety to you
in case of sickness or out of employment.
Nothing In our line with soft wood paint
ed cases and celluloid keys. Present
copy of this nd. If you want to take ad
vantage of the $35 proposition.
