To Close Bridge to Travel. After
next Monday morning no vehicles nor
pedestrians will cross the Morrison-street
bridge for seven to eight months. Only
street-cars will be allowed. The decision
to close the bridge Monday was an
nounced yesterday by F. M. Butler, super
intendent for tho Pacific Construction
Company. Tho eastern span Is to be
raised, and It will be Impossible to allow
heavy teams to pass while this Is being
done. The contractors say they will have
trouble enough with the street cars, but
the car traffic cannot be stopped for some
time yet. "We will use the traveler and
jack up the eftt span in such a way that
It would be dangerous for teams to cross,"
said Mr. Butler yesterday. The traveler
is used practically to lift portions of the
structure from their foundations. It
will be placed across the bridge, protrud
ing at either side. Practically all of the
material for the new steel bridge is now
In the city, and .awaiting Its turn at the
contractor's dock at the foot of East Oak
street. The tramway from the dock
along East Water street to the bridge
Is completed, and the material may easily
and quickly be hauled out as required.

Tickets for "The Ameer."
The plan adopted by the Multnomah
committee as regards the advance tickets
for "Tho Ameer," which Is to be pre
sented April 28, 29 and 30, Is a simple one.
It will, however, do away with the con
fusion that resulted from the advance
sale of "The Wizard of the Nile" tickets.
Last year all the tickets were alike and
good for any performance. This year
they will be different for each of the
three night performances and the mat
inee. A combination of colors that is
well-known and never varied has been
chosen for the three night performances.
This combination Is red, white and blue.
Accordingly the tickets for tho first night
are red, those for the second night are
white and those for the third night are
blue. Matinee tickets are brown. The
purchaser chooses his performance and
buys his ticket good for that performance.
This he presents at the box office Tues
day, April 26, and gets his seat ticket, On
this day nothing but advance tickets will
be taken in exchange for seat tickets.
No money will be accepted at the box
office on the 26th. The next day, Wed
nesday, the 27th, the cash sale will open
at the box office.
There are just 733 seats In the Mar
quam which will be sold for $1. There
have been just 733 advance tickets printed
for each performance. Hence everybody
who buys an advance ticket is sure of
getting a good seat by presenting his
ticket at the box office on the 26th. These
tickets will go on sale tonight Thurs
day night April 28, red tickets: Friday
night April 29, white tickets; Saturday
night Apr 30, blue tickets; Saturday
matinee, April 30, brown tickets.
Tonight the auction of boxes and loges
will be held at the clubhouse. This will
take place about 8 o'clock, and from the
interest that is manifest among the mem
bers and people generally there will be
some spirited tilts for the possession of
the boxes and loges. The committee de
sires it to be known that the public as
well as members are invited.
"The Cowboy and the Lady."
A great many people, and especially
the regular patrons of the Baker The
ater, have been looking forward for some
time to the production of Nat Goodwin's
famous piece, "The Cowboy and the
Lady." It opens tomorrow afternoon and
WARM-hearted hospitality was scat
tered with a lavish hand last
night at the "at home" given by the
Scottish Rite bodies at "their handsome
new cathedral, Morrison and Lownsdale
streets, and the building was a blaze of
light The ballroom presented a charm
ing mass of color, with fair visitors pres
ent from different parts of the state,
while others of the guests played whist
in the parlors or chatted in the reception
room. Parson's.Orchestra played delight
ful music, and tho floor in the ballroom
was In excellent condition. The various
committees who arranged the details of
the "at home" deserve the greatest credit
fbr their work, for the event was ono of
the great social successes of the season.
A delicious supper "was served down
stairs about 10:30 o'clock, and selections
of music were played by Wllder's Orches

l chou, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Jacobeen, Mr. and
will continue all next week. While es
sentially a Western play, with the scenes
and characters of a rugged Western
nature, there is none of the cheap melo
dramatic ta its construction or lines. It
Is in true keeping with all the plays in
the new Nelll-Morosco Company's reper
toire, and is In fact a pure, sparkling
diamond In the rough, and without doubt
will prove one of tho most successful
plays of the company's engagement in
Matinee at Cordray's Today.
"Two Vagabonds" will be given at tho
matinee today by the Oiympla Opera
Company, and for the last time tonight
at Cordray's Theater. The opera pos
sesses charm and music and the comedy
will be enjoyed by the ladles attending

Tho opera is an attractive one.

Dlavolo," which Is a grand opera, will
open Thursday night and continue until
the date set for Mrs. Flske's opening at
Cordray's, April 25.
"Aristocracy," Bronson Howard's in
tensely fascinating satire on English so
ciety, which the Nelll-Morosco Company
is giving this week at tho Baker Theater,
Is a play that tests the strength and
artistic capability of a company to tho
fullest extent Whllo watching the dif
ferent situations, one is strongly Im
pressed with tho thought of how easily
the whole play could bo ruined when
placed In the hands of an inferior com
pany, and then comes the thought -obow
perfectly it Is being presented by tho
members of the new Nelll-Morosco Com
pany. The week closes with tho matinee
today jind tonight's performance.
The Woman of Mystery.
The San Francisco Bulletin say3 of
Miss Anna Eva Fay, who opens a week's
engagement at the Empire Theater next
Tuesday night: "There are some astound
ing developments going on at the Cali
fornia Theater this week, where Anna
Eva Fay Is holding forth with her mar
velous manifestations. She performs
mysterious feats of second sight that
have set tho entire city talking. Lost
articles have been located, the identity
of thieves has been positively established.
Information has been given that has led
to the discovery of missing friends and
relatives; in fact such facts as no one
Individual human being could possibly be
In possession of. Her startling revela
tions have created a profound sensation
among tho big crowds that havo been
attending the California thus far during
Fine BUI at the Arcade.
Two matinees at the Arcade Theater
today offer especial attractions to matinee
parties of women and children. Dervin,
the great ventriloquist presents an enter
taining act In which his dolls sing, talk
and laugh at their own clever jokes.
Mantcll and Lamb and their troupe ofj
marionettes win applause by one of the
most Interesting acts on the vaudeville
stage. Their mannlklns are lively Happy
Hooligans, policemen and mischlevious
boys whose pranks make for merriment
Master Eugene, the boy wonder of the
Empire Trio, is another marvelous en
tertainer. De Voz and Perl do an amus
ing society sketch, Jessie More sings an
illustrated song, and the American bio
scope flashes diverting moving pictures.

PIANOS THAT MOVE.
We are sometimes asked If we keep
pianos. No, we do not keep them, we
sell them. The superior quality of the
pianos wo are offering at a "cheap piano"
price accounts for tho fact that we are
selling them, not keeping them. Late
additions to our list of buyers are: Prot
Streyffeler (who selected a Krakauer In
preference to anything In the city), Mr.
Alfred Loeb. of the O. R. & N.; Mr. Paul
Trultt of Wren, Or., and one to tho Pat
ton Home. The purchasing committee
of the Patton Home, assisted by a very
prominent musician, selected a piano at
our store as altogether tho best piano
they had seen at the price, although we
have no special sale on at this time.
Many others are now using our pianos,
but spaco forbids. Como In and allow us
to introduce you to our pianos, prices and
terms. You will not regret the visit If
you are considering the piano question.

Concert at the Marquam.
The Marquam Theater was well filled
last night on the occasion of a concert by
Driscoll'a Orchestra, Samuel Wallace
Driscoll, director, and the orchestra was
assisted by these vocalists: Mrs. May
Dearborne Schwab, soprano, and Dom J.
Many of the orchestral selections were
encored, and the playing, so far as good
ensemble effect and finish are concerned,
more than pleased. The audience was
quick and eager to applaud any articu
lar point of merit and Mr. Driscoll was
capable as conductor. Mrs. Dearborne
Schwab was In excellent voice, and the
bird-like quality of her vocalism de
lighted her hearers in the "Polonaise,"
from Mlgnon. She deserved the hearty
encore she received. Mr. Zan's finished,
expressive style of singing was heard
to advantage In Rodney's "Bells of St
Mary," and he was also encored.

CAUCUS FIXES SLATE
Democrats Suggest Men for
MANY CALLED, FEW WILLING
'Nobody Wants County Clerk, Cor-
onershlp Goes Begging, While
County Treasurer Is a Gift
to Charles E. Ladd.
Big Democrats and little, pink and
swarthy, were raked together last night
In caucus. They were delegates in the
County Convention which will resume
Its labors this morning where It left oft
last Thursday. Both Peeryltes and
Sweekites shook hands across tho bloody
The brethren made careful Inventory
of their eliglbles for office In order that
only truo blue Democrats may be put on
the ticket today.
Tho convention adjourned last Thurs
day, not because tho gentlemen's pug
nacity ran out hut because the sun
didn't stay long enough above the hills.
Many patriots offered themselves toi
sacrifice last night All knew that the
enemies' hoofs wero like flint and their
wheels like tho whirlwind; still braves
must bo led to the slaughter In order that
tho party's name shall be perpetuated.
Tho stalwarts confossed that the out
look was at best only a forlorn hope, and
as no newspaper reporters were present
their lamentations had free voice.
"We have men," cried one brother,
"who are willing to make the personal
sacrifice for Democracy's sake," and every
stout heart in the bunch swelled with
Though tho caucus was called simply to
"discuss" candidates, the warhorses found
themselves, actually nominating at several
Junctures. But tho mandate, "open con
vention and no slate," called them back
to the fitness of things. They only for
got when they fell to talking all at onco
or "when a neighbor seemed oblivious of
tho particular merit possessed by this or
that candidate. Then the assemblage
flew apart Into many little caucuses and
had to be pulled together again In order
that business might proceed.
First of all, the caucus tried to ferret
out a candidate for County Clerk. But
a strident voice demanded to know wheth
er proxies would be admitted. Tho volco
was so Insistent that It had to be taken
out for a glass of beer.
At last G. H. Thomas was fixed upon
as a good candidate for Clerk. But that
gentleman shied, saying "Not for me,"
and the caucus was In despair, for no
body else was In sight In the hope that
Mr. Thomas would change his mind after
a good night's sleep, the gentlemen swept
on to other achievements.
"Docs anybody want to be Coroner,"
asked Chairman M. I Nicholas. Appar
ently nobody did. "This offlco Is very
Important" remarked the chair tempt
ingly. But everybody felt sarcastic for
the moment so the gentlemen went to
For that office General Compson, B. F.
Campbell. W. H. Grlndstaff and William
Reldt were suggested. Compson declined
tho honor because he was present and In
order to keep the three others from dodg
ing a committee was appointed to exer
cise blandishments upon them this morn
ing. This seemed tho right time to name
eliglbles for Coroner. Two men were sug
gested. Dr. Paul J. A. Semler and Dr. J.
W. Morrow. And likewise to keep them
from dodging, a committee of two was
named to Interview them this morning.
Then came County Treasurer. The name
of one Beam was sounded, but the owner
of tho name declined, saying ho would
be satisfied with nothing In politics save
Presidency of the United States. Then
Robert Grady's name cam(j up, and "L.
Wilhelm's. But somebody preferred a can
didate who would have "a show of elec
tion." "What's the matter with Ladd?" cried
And C. B. Ladd was the choice of the
caucus for County Treasurer.
For Surveyor wero named Douglas Tay
lor and B, C. Bonser. M. Marks was sug
gested for Bast Side Justice, but as his
Democratic record was a matter of doubt
Newton McCoy was appointed to Investi
gate. For Mount Tabor Justice were
named J. E. Newell, Valentine Brown and
W. A. Dunn.
John Grussl, when Invited to bo a candi
date for West Side Constable, "didn't
want that office or any other." Then
William Miller was put up.
Next tho Legislative ticket Names men
tioned for Senator were those of F. V.
Holman, who was willing to be a mar
tyr on a "straight ticket"; John M. Gear
In, C. B. S. Wood, John Lamont George
Shaver, T. A. Greene, A. F. Flegel, Eugene
Shelby and Dr. Harry Lane. For Repre
sentative were suggested H. W. Parker,
Oglesby Toung, James Gleason, H. B. Ad
ams, George W. Simons, N. A. Peery, E.
Versteeg, R. A. Wilson, M. J. Malley, C. B.
