Not So Bad As Expected. "William
Happersett. who fell from the steel
bridge being constructed across the
Clackamas by the Southern Pacific Com
pany a few weeks ago, was fortunate In
being much less severely Injured than
was at first supposed, and has been able
to resume his duties. He was running the
engine used in hoisting material Into
place and. seeine that the builders had
got a piece of material In such a position
that they could not handle it, left his
post and hastened to assist them. In his
haste he missed his footing and fell
off the bridge. The surface of the river
below was covered with floating logs and
limbers and he says that as he was going
flown he thought that many of his bones
would be broken on them and he would
probably be killed outright. It happened
that ho passed between the timbers into
deep water and came to the surface prac
tically uninjured except that one wrist
was disabled and it was supposed that a
hone In the wrist had been broken. The
doctor told him it would probably be be
tween two and three months before he
could go to work again, but it turned out
that the hone was only split and in three
weeks It was so far healed that he went
to work.
Autumn Moving Season. Summer vis
itors to the coast resorts are preparing
to return home In large numbers and the
cool, showery weather of the past day or
two will have a tendency to hurry them
up. Many whose houses have been closed
during their absence have "sent orders to
the water works office to have the water
turned on and are having the houses
thoroughly aired. After the water has
been turned off a whije, the traps In
waste pipes connecting with the sewers
become empty and sewer gas has free
admission to the house. This renders the
turning on of the water, airing and
fumigating thoroughly very necessary be
fore the house is again occupied. A num
ber of persons take advantage of the end
of the Summer vacation to move into
new dwellings and furniture vans are
kept busy these days. The proprietor of
one of them said: "There are two mov
ing seasons In the year, May and Sep
tember, and It is hard to tell which Is the
busiest. There are only two weeks now
to the Autumnal equinox and all will en
deavor to be settled for the Winter by
that time if possible."
Bad Result op Steamboat Wars
Several steamboat men discussing the
subject of competing lines and low fares
resulting, deplored these results- as harm
ful to business and dangerous to the pub
lic, when rates are cut below reason
on account of competition, boats are
crowded beyond comfort or safety, and
racing becomes the order of the day.
This frequently results In disaster, some
thing giving away under the unusual
strain or a collision or explosion occurs,
causing great loss of life In over-crowded
boats. "When asked why steamboat men
engaged in such rivalries or competitions
which result in loss only to all concerned.
the speaker replied: "Oh! some men are
built that way and are never satisfied to
carry on a legitimate business, but get
hold of some practically worthless boat
and start an opposition line for the pur
pose of obliging the other company to
buy them out to get rid of them. Some
men have been in this business here for
years, first on one river and then on
another."
No More Wooden Cornices. The large
copper cornice for the Stearns building
on Morrison street is nearly ready to be
placed in position and Its appearance on
the lofty scaffolding attracts the atten
tion of many. A fire department official
who was standing across Morrison street
from this building Saturday and looking
at it intently said he was studying out
the best arrangement for the fire-escapes
which will have to be placed on it. In
regard to the copper cornice, he said
that no more wooden cornices were al
lowed where they projected more than
six Inches beyond the front of a building.
The wooden brackets used in supporting
wooden cornices were a menace to the
lives of firemen and to everybody near a
building in time of fire. At the fire on
the CannIng-"Wallace building on Front
i street some time ago. Chief Engineer
Campbell had a narrow escape from be
ing killed by a falling bracket The metal
cornices are a great improvement over
the wooden ones.
William Hubs Explains William
Huss, a baker at Woodlawn, who was
fined 520 last week at the Municipal
Court for durunkenness, said yesterday:
rin explanation of the matter leading
to my arrest, I wish to contradict the
statement that I had any trouble with
my wife or family. Ex-Policeman Frank
Patten came up and, asking me what I
I was doing, struck me and threw me on
the floor. This happened several times.
I He is twice as strong as I am. and I
could do nothing with him. I nicked un
!a hatchet for protection, but he took it
from me and pointed a revolver at me.
II should not have been arrested It ought
to nave seen somebody else. I don't see
why Patten should have acted this way
toward me. Only a short time ago, I
paid him $250 for work done at my house.
Last Spring I paid him $21 for building,
a fence. I am about the heaviest tax
payer in "Woodlawn."

whose place Is on the Tualatin section,
was severely Injured on one arm a short
time ago by being hooked by a cow. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Richardson are known to
many in this city, having for some time
been employed in newspaper offices here,
but they removed to a farm some years
ago. Mrs. Richardson has been In the
habit of visiting the city weekly to dis
pose of her butter, eggs and chickens.
For two weeks she failed to put in an
appearance to the surprise of her cus
tomers and then she came around again
with her arm bandaged. She said that one
evening she was milking a cow, which
had a calf in the pen being weaned,
when a little dog came running up to her.
She put her hand out to drive the dog
away when the cow made a lunge at the
dog and one of her horns cut a long and
deep gash in Mrs. Richardson's arm.. A.
neighbor, and old soldier, sewed up the
wound with a common sewing needle and
a piece of black silk, the only silk to be
found, and the wound healed nicely,- so
that she is able to drive to town.
Stories op Hunters akd Anglers.
Hunting and fishing parties are coming
home from the mountains and stories of
remarkable adventures are numerous.
One party which came on f rom. Lost Lake,
near Mount Hood, a day or two ago,
reports having shot two bears in seven
seconds and having hooked trout so long
that there was not time during the stay
in camp to get them pulled entirely out
of the water. Others who went back
from Cape Horn tell they struck the
Washougal near a fall and rapids, had a
rather unpleasant experience with bears,
which invaded their camp at night and
ate up all their store of food except the
canned goods and would have eaten those
also if they could have found a can
opener. One of this party had a narrow
escape from being drowned. He was
standing on a rock on the edge of a
rapid, making long casts into a swirl in
hope of catching a large trout when a
salmon took his fly and gave a lurch
which pulled the fisherman off the slip
pery rock Into the rapids from which he
was with difficulty extricated.

That enjoyable well-balancea play that
was a success 20 years go, "The Legion
of Honor." written by Dr. T. D. Callahan
for the late Sam Piercy, was the attrac
tion at Cordray's last night, and was cor
dially received by a .house packed to Its
utmost capacity. The play has quite a
history, and was first produced in San
Francisco. W. M. Russell, one of the
managers at Cordray's, remembers play
ing it many years ago In his theater at
Detroit Mich., when Sam Piercy played
Raoul de Llgnieres, and Lewis Morrison
was the Count de Maubry. When Sam
Piercy died, the company disbanded, and
Manager R. C. Gardner took the only
copy of the play with him to Australia,
where the production was a money-maker.
Many attempts were made to bring tho
play to this country, and a long lawsuit
resulted," so valuable was the play consid
ered, but it was only last month that the
manuscript reached New York. Mr. Rus
sell was successful In purchasing the
Western reproduction rights, and it is now
played under an arrangement he has made
with Edwin Mordant The latter got tho
manuscript In Seattle, and with only five
days for rehearsal he and his excellent
company recently played it for the first
time In that city.
"The Legion of Honor" has a French
setting and plot. The action and senti
ment shine like a page from Dumas. Tho
villlan is Count de Maubry (Mortimer
Martini, who was here last season with
Ralph Stuart) and he. although a married
man, makes love to and marries a woman
who Is afterward Elsie de Llgnieres (Ola
Humphrey). When she discovers his du
plicity, she leaves him and returns to her
parents. Believing that she was not legal
ly married to Maubry, she afterward
married Raoul de Llgnieres (Edwin Mor
dant) and gives birth to a son whom
Raoul de Llgnieres accepts as his son,
and names the baby Roland (W. E. Ma
rlon). A few years later, the elder De
Llgnieres learns from his mother-in-law,
as she Is dying that Roland is really the
son of the Count de Maubry, who, in the
meantime, has been with the French
army In Algiers, and for his bravery has
been decorated with the Legion of Honor.
The De Llgnieres have a daughter named
Pauline (Edna Keeley). The plot thickens
when De Maubry suddenly returns to
Franco and meets his old friend, Monsieur
Distrait (Paul Polklngton), who knew of
his Intrigue with Elsie de Llgnieres. Dis
trait is an old roue, and in his tittle-tattle
he remarks in the presence of Roland
that Elsie de Llgnieres suffered in her
reputation at the hands of De Maubry.
Just then De Maubry strolls in, and the
angry young man springs (on him with
tho fury of a tiger, burning to avenge
the Insult offered to his mother. He
plucks tho medal of the Legion of Honor
from De Maubry's breast and, of course,
a challenge to a duel follows.
Here Is where the problem play begins.
'Will De Maubry fight with and slay his
own son? The mother Is torn with re
morse and grief when she learns of the
proposed duel. The playwright brings the
elder De Llgnieres and De Maubry togeth
er, and De Maubry is told that he Is about
to fight with his own son. He consents to
be branded as a coward rather than fight
with Roland, but a sudden dispute arises
between De Maubry and De Llgnieres, and
in the duel that follows the elder De Llg
nieres drives his sword through his ene
my's heart Ola Humphrey excelled in the
heavy, emotional work and Mr. Mordant
mado a fine, dignified De Llgnieres. Mr.
Martini was acceptable as De Maubry, and
Beatrice Bronfleld made a pretty picture
as the Baroness. Mr. Polklngton skillful
ly supplied the comedy element The oth
ers acquitted themselves satisfactorily,
and the play Is well staged. It will be
played at Cordray's all this week.
Special Matinee at the Empire.
A special matinee wll be given at tho
Empire Theater this afternoon on acount
of the Labor day festivities, and the cozy
playhouse will undoubtedly be thronged
with amusement- seekers. The full and
especially attractive new programme will
bo presented. Prices, only 20 and 10 cents.
VISIT FROM HIS CAPTAIN
Portland Veteran Meets Him lor
First Time Since Civil "War.
At the meeting of Sumner Post, No. 12,
G. A. R., Saturday night. Captain Lot
Abraham, of Mount Pleasant Iowa, en
tertained the members with a wonderful
fund of story and song. The cause of his
presence at the meeting was the inter
esting feature. It was the reunion after
37 years between Captain Abraham and
W. E. Hayden, both of whom served In
Company D, Fourth Iowa Cavalry for
four years of the war.
Captain Abraham heard that Mr. Hay
den lived on the East Side, and when he
arrived in Portland on a visit to his sis
ter, he located his. old comrade. Saturday
evening Just before dark Captain Abra
ham called at the home of Mr. Hayden.
The latter at first failed to recognize his
old comrade, but as soon as he spoke Mr.
Hayden recalled him as the captain of
the company in which he served. The two
veterans served under Generals Pleas
anton. Mowers, Grant and A. J. Smith
In their campaigns through Arkansas,
Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
They were in 22 hard-fought battles and
eight skirmishes. They parted 37 years
ago at Mount Pleasant, la., at the mar
riage of Captain Abraham.
After they had spent several hours talk
ing over old times, the two comrades
went up to Sumner Post, where" the lat
ter was soon as much at home as if he
had always been a member. Captain
Abraham has been a great traveler. He
has been to the Holy Land and Is now
touring the Northwest writing letters for
the local papers. At the post he told in
teresting stories and sang songs. It was
one of the most interesting meetings
Sumner Post ever held and the comrades
mado It very pleasing to their visitor.
He afterward paid Sumner Post the high
compliment of saying that he had never
enjoyed a G. A. R. meeting as keenly as
that of Saturday night Captain Abra
ham Is still a great traveler. Ho has
made the trip up through the "gorge of
the Columbia" and is gathering material
for letters about Oregon. He will not for
get to mention In his letters to his home
papers that tho Lewis and Clark Fair
will be held in Oregon in 1905.

SHI ELDS'
Grace "Walton Makes Her Dcbmt oh.
Vandeville Stage.
Keen-edged, and cruel, the sharp sibl
lance of a hiss cut through the applause
which greeted Grace Walton Haynie's
debut' on the vaudeville stage at Shields
Park last night The little brown-haired
woman, wife of a highwayman, faltered
a second, and then, as -the heralding
music of the orchestra stopped, broke
nervously into her recitation.
Mrs. Haynie, new vaudevile star though
she be, is not beautiful. Her figure has
the lines of agreeable salience which lean
"females must imitate with pads of cloth
and quilted hair. Her arms, bare to the
shoulder last night, aro pretty with the
prettlness of the plump and youthful, but
they show also the ominous swell above
the elbow which presages an unattractive
fatness at 40.
The big audience at the park liked her
last night Whether it liked the recita
tion cannot be told. But it applauded
heartily at Its close, and the young woman
who lias broken into vaudeville as a head
liner walked off the stage with a look of
marked relief upon her face.
Mrs. Haynie was undeniably nervous.
Although the wind may have tossed her
somewhat scanty hair, no one who was
not nervous would have so continuously
stroked the recalcitrant tresses back Into
place or out of It In response to a deaf
ening encore, In which no hiss was audi
ble,she sang "Where the Silvery Colorado
Wends Its Way," and hero again her
nervousness put her at a disadvantage.
But withal Mrs. Haynie made a hit The
audience liked her, and Manager Shieldsy
who banked partly on the curiosity of tho
public to see . a woman of whom 'twas
said that she watched her husband hold
up men on Seattle's streets, has every
reason to congratulate himself upon his
judgment His new star will be a drawing
card all week.
The remainder of the show Is snappy
and attractive. Francois, a shadow
graphlst, opens the programme, and his
turn affords the audience much . amuse
ment Black Barton does a "coon" spe
cialty, and Rose and Swain, a pair of
Dutch sketch artists, are really original
and good.
Nelsonia, a Juggler, evokes much ap
plause with a plate-splnnlng act in which
he keeps seven china dishes spinning on
a table at one time. Rand and Byron, a
knock-about sketch team, depend largely
on the grotesque appearance of a fat lady
in short skirts for the mirth they cause.
Nellie Hlllyer has a very acceptable voice,
and her illustrated songs were well re
ceived. Roselle and Rostelle created a good deal
of laughter in their sketch entitled "A
Widow's Courtship," while the polyscope
pictures are unusually good.
Labor-Day Attraction at Marnuam,
Tonight at the Marquam Grand Theater
that funny farce comedy "Where Is
Cobb?" will begin an engagement of two
nights. It may seem strange, but "Where
Is Cobb" Is quite different from all other
farce comedles-dn that it actually contains
a plot Aside from the play itself are in
troduced some of the strongest vaudeville
acts ever seen In the "West, including Miss
Marion George, conceded to have no
equals as a lady violinist; Miss Katherlne
George, doing the greatest contortion ever
seen, without a repulsive feature; Miss
Agnes George, a phenomenal soprano.

Known as the Cleverest.
The new programme to be presented at
the Empire Theater tonight will have
upon It one act that is known for its ex
ceptional merit to every 'person In Amer
ica versed in things theatrical. Raymond
& Ca'verly, the German comedians, are
without question the cleverest and fun
niest team In the business outside the City
of New York. A convincing proof of their
merit Is the fact that they are paid a
higher salary than any similar team on
the road today. The rest of the bill is
crowded with clever acts, and the many
patrons of the popular house are assured
of a week of merriment

This blfr establishment of ours has been
built up on strictly modern broadguage
principles; we propose to aanere to them
as closely now and In future as wo have
in the past, for In dealing fairly and
generously with the public lies the only
hope for permanency of any business en
terprise. Remember that this alteration sale is
the greatest money-saving opportunity
you have ever seen in the Western piano
trade. Over1- a hundred and twenty-five
of the shrewdest buyers of this city and
state, as well as from Idaho, Washington,
and Wyoming, have found it so. You will
do likewise if you'll stop to investigate.
Come In before It Is too late. Remember
the place, Ellars Piano House, 351 Wash
ington street corner of Park street.
the plaster has already fallen. The Lee
Chapel building, with two rooms, on Pow
ell and East Elghteonth streets, will be
occupied by the overflow from the Brook
lyn schoolhouse, and even it will be
crowded.
However, hopes are , entertained that
part of a new building will be started
south of the present structure as soon as
full title to the additional five lots pur
chased can be secured. Title on three lots
has been secured, but the owner of two
of the lots Is In the heart of Alaska and
has not yet been heard from.

It is always hov always

matter where you want to
use it, whether in kitchen,
sewing room or laundry, it
is but a small matter to con
nect it to the electric light
circuit. It is quickly heated
and remains heated as long
as the current is on. Espe
cially in the sewing room,
where a hot iron is often
needed, will this be appre
ciated from the fact that it
requires no fire and no run
ning to and from the kitchen.
