This evening as usual the store closes at six o'clock. The day is coming when all of the
large retail establishments of the city will follow our lead and close evenings the year round. We
are interested in seeing this brought about. It would not be to the detriment of the storekeepers
and would be greatly to the advantage of hundreds yes thousands of store workers. Strangely
enough, in the face of this idea of inaugurating shorter hours of labor for store helpers, we have
been strongly importuned to keep open with other stores until 9:30 Saturday evenings. We adHere,
however, strictly to the rule adopted long ago .by this store. Life is not all business there's
humanity and the brotherhood of man. We believe the hours after six in the evening belong to our
helpers. Our friends in the city and visitors within its gates will please take- notice that Olds,
Wortman & King close at six o'clock, as usual, on Saturday, night, and do their shopping by day

Roosevelt Proposes Health at
Yacht Club Dinner.
GUESTS ALL RISE AND CHEER
Message Is Sent the Yachtsman Ex

and Best Wishes for His
OYSTER BAY. N. Y., Sept. 18. Presi
dent Roosevelt was the guest of honor at
the annual dinner of the Seawanhaka
Corlnthian Yacht Club at its handsome
and spacious home on Center Island in
Oyster Bay. Many men prominently
identified with yachting In the East were
present, and the dinner was a delightful
affair. An invitation, was sent to Sir
Thomas LIpton, but. he was unable to
accept on account of illness and because
of his engagements in the "West.
Notwithstanding the fact that the Pres
ident was among friends and fellow club
members, precautions were taken to in
sure his personal safety. Two secret
service officers remained near him and
additional precautions were taken by the
Immediately after the arrival of the
President, the guests, who numbered
about 100, sat down to dinner. It was an
informal affair, the various courses being
Interspersed with songs by glee clubs, in
which songs nearly all the guests joined.
President Roosevelt was- received with
great applause, all the guests rising. He
spoke in part as follows:
"This club is prominent for sports In
which the masters themselves take an
active part, while others desire men to do
it for them. I feel that this club stands
as a type of 6portlng club conspicuous for
manliness and decency. You ought to be
encouraged, but I don't think you need
"During the past Summer all have been
interested in the International yacht
racea. It was 18 years ago when the first
of the single-stickers came to begin that
great duel which has been a feature of
achting Interests during all these years.
It is a curious fact that not only has our
boat won the championships, but every
race of the series. "We- owe a debt of grat
itude to the designers, the captains and
the seamen who contributed to the win
ning of the races by the American boats.
' Now, I am going to ask you to drink
to the health of our gallant opponents of
the last IS years, especially to the health
of Sir Thomas Upton, whom we had
hoped to have with us tonight."
At the mention of Sir Thomas name the
guests rose and cheered enthusiastically,
and the toast was drunk with much spirit.
Just before the closf of the dinner a
message was sent to Sir Thomas LIpton,
expressing regret at his absence and best
wishes for his speedy recovery.
A telegram was received this afternoon
from the private secretary of Sir, Thomas
"Am certain had it been possible Sir
Thomas would have been delighted to
have been present at the dInnerHls con
dition is certainly improved thls'morning,
but he probably will be confined to his
hotel for several days."
It was almost 11 o'clock when President
Roosevelt was escorted by members of the
club to his launch on his journey across
the bay. As he left the landing he was
given three hearty cheers.
Queen Alexandra have requested to be
kept well informed of the latest news
from Chicago regarding the condition of
Sir Thomas Upton.
SIR THOMAS IS DOING 'WELL.
Physicians Are Xot Yet Ready to
Say Dnngcr Is Passed.
CHICAGO, Sept 18. The condition of
Sir Thomas Lipton was pronounced by his
physicians to be entirely satlsfactoryi and
it is believed that all danger has passed,
though the doctors say it will be several
days before they will be able to make
that statement with entire confidence.
"We see ho reason," said Dr. Thomas
tonight, "why Sir Thomas should not
mend rapidly. All dangerous symptoms
have subsided to almost nothing, and
while it is too early to say that there is
no danger whatever, we think that there
is' no doubt of his rapid recovery."
It is not expected that Sir Thomas will
be able to leave his bed for the greater
part of a week to come and it will be at
least ten days before he is able to travel.

If Supreme Court Upholds the For

Will at Once Begin Action
OREGONIAN NEWS B'UREAU, Wash
ington, Sept 18. At the Department of
Justice it is said Attorney-General Knox
is busy at his Summer honie near Valley
Forge, Pa., working up the case of the
Government against the Northern Securi
ties Company, it being expected that Mr.
Knox will in person argue this case be
fore the Supreme Court this Winter. The
argument, under an arrangement made
last Spring, is to be heard the middle of
December, and a decision is looked for
some time during the next term of the
In the event the Supreme Court sus
tains the lower courts in this case and
decides In favor of the Government, It Is
known that the Department of Justice
will bo ready at once to institute suits
against other corporations that are be
lieved to come within the provisions of
the Sherman law and Its modifications.
The Northern Securities case is regarded
as the most important now pending, and
this will be made a 'test case to deter
mine the extent to which the Government,
through the Department of Justice, can
prosecute corporations found to bo de
stroying competition in legitimate trade.
INDIAN OFFICIAL LIKELY TO GO.
Yakima Superintendent Held at
Fault by Supervisor.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
lngton, Sept 18. An investigation into
charges that were preferred against Jay
Lynch, bonded superintendent in charge
of the Yakima Indian reservation, is re
ported to have convinced Supervisor
Charles Dickson that Lynch is guilty as
charged. Private advices from Yakima
state that Lynch was found to be conduct
ing the affairs of the Yakima agency In
an inexcusably loose manner, without sys
tem and without proper control. He was
charged with inefficiency and mismanage
ment and it Is said to be the opinion of
Supervisor Dickson that he should no
longer bo continued in his present posi
tion. The investigation failed to reveal any
thing criminal on the part of Lynch, either
as to the handling of his accounts or the
general conduct of the agency. When
Dickson's report is received it will bo
laid before Secretary Hitchcock for action,
but no final action is likely to be taken
until the latter part of next month, as
Congressman Jones, who has repeatedly
appealed on behalf of Lynch, wishes to
take the case up with- the Secretary when
he arrives In Washington.
The probabilities are that Lynch ulti
mately will bo removed, for the tendency
in the Indian service, at the present time,
Is to weed mt incompetents and officials
who are not generally satisfactory, and to
infuse new blood that meets requirements
and tends to raise the standard of the
service. As Lynch Is under the classi
fied service, he has been given opportunity
to make answer to all charges, and his re
ply will be submitted with the report of
Supervisor Dickson. Lynch's salary Is
$1600 per year.

DE AVERS MUST PACE CHARGE.
Court Holds Indictment of the Pos
tal Chief I Valid.
NEW YORK, Sept IS. At the examina
tion of George AV. Beavers, the indicted
Postofllce official, charged with conspir
acy with the Brandt-Dent Manufacturing
Company, to defraud the Government,
which was resumed today, Commissioner
Hitchcock announced that he had decided
to overrule the motion made by the de
fense at the previous hearing to dismiss
the proceedings because of the invalidity
of the indictment.
The defense contended that the indict
ment charged three separate and distinct
offenses under one secUon of the Federal
statutes instead of one, as provided by
law. He also repeated his ruling' that
the properly cerUflcd copy of the indict
ment returned In Brooklyn was sufficient
evidence to make out a case of probable
cause, and to warrant the return of the
accused, properly Identified, to the district
wherein the indictment was returned.
It developed in the course of the ex
amination and was admitted upon the
record by District Attorney Burnett that
subpenas had been served by the de
fense upon District Attorney Youngs, in
Brooklyn, and his stenographer, and a
subpena for the production of certain
papers upon Postmaster-General Payne,
the defense stating that it wanted the
Government to make out its case before
the District Commissioner in New York,
in order that the defense might prove
that Mr. Beavers had nothing whatever
to do with the making of the contract
between the Government and the Brandt
Dent Company. The subpenas had been
"For the first time on record in this
district," said Mr. Steurs. attorney for
Beavers, "the Government seeks to have
this accused man sent to Brooklyn with
out the preliminary examination that has
been accorded every defendant arraigned
for extradition in a quarter of a century.
"We want to know whom the Govern
ment seeks to shield by this indictment.
We contend that if permitted to go into
this case here that we will prove that
there Is nbt only a lack of probable
cause to believe that a crime has been
committed, but, so far as Beavers Is con
cerned, it is a case of absolute innocence,
and we hdpe to prove It. But for some
reason the Government seeks to suppress
General Burnett said the defendant had
been Indicted in the Eastern district, and
would be given the opportunity to prove
his Innocence there In duo time.
Commissioner Hitchcock ruled that his
subpenas were not operative outside the
Southern District of New York except on
request, and as a result the persons sub
penaed in Brooklyn were not in con
tempt. To a further statement that the defense
wislied to subpena George F. Miller, man
ager of the Brandt-Dent Company, and
others, to prove there was no evidence as
alleged in the indictment of the payment
of money to Beavers, District Attorney
Burnett replied that from what Mr. Stem
proposed to prove It was evidently the
intention of the defense to turn the exam
ination into a trial. After adjourning

BLOWS OUT HIS OWN BRAINS
KvnnsviHe Chief of Police, Ills Cap

and Fatally Wounded.
EVANSVILLE, Ind., Sept. IS. After
shooting and probably fatally wounding
Chief of Police Fred Heucke and Captain
Brennecke, of the police department, and
seriously wounding Frank Lutz, a Council
man of Boonevllle, Ind., Detective Thomas
Hutchens tonight shot and killed him
self. The tragedy was the result of a
long-existing quarrel between Brennecke
and Hutchens. The cause Is not known.
The shooting occurred in a tent at ttye
Tri-State Fair grounds, in the presence of
at least 5C0 people. Neither Chief Heucke
nor Captain Brennecke had opportunity to
Patrolman Crow was sitting at a table
near the entrance of the German village
when Hutchens, Chief Heucke and Cap
tain Brennecke entered. Crow Jumped to'
his feet and started for the detective as
soon as the first shot was fired. He did
riot reach him, however, until both the
Chief and tho captain had been struck.
Hutchens then fired the shot that struck
Whether he Intended the shot for
Heucke or Patrolman Crow is not known.
Both men were in th'e line of fire, and it
is probable he intended to kill Crow for
attempting to Interfere. After he had fired
four shots Hutchens walked outside the
tent, and, saying "No man will ever live
to see me tried," placed the revolver to
his right temple and sent his last bullet
Into his brain.
Six years ago Hutchens shot at Bren
necke in a saloon, but the bullet lodged In
the celling. It is believed that the con
viction this afternoon of William Trimble,
one of the men who took part in the riotg
of July 3 and 6. had something to do with
hastening the tragedy. Captain Brennecke
has been one of the most active workers
for the state, and it is said his activity
against the rioters increased Hutchens
Captain Brennecke is still unconscious.
Frank Lutz is believed to be fatally hurt.
