Portland Bonds Command a
. Prernium,
Street' Improvement Bonds Drawing
6 Per Ce'nt Interest, Are In Great
Demand Total Amount of
Bids Opened, Is $514,000.
That there is enough capital In Port
land to absorb all the city bonds for street
Improvements offered, and even to ask
for $419,000 Worth above the amount on
sale, was shown yesterday afternoon
when City Auditor Devlin opened 27 bids
for $95,000 worth.
The prices offered ranged about 2 per
cent premium for the most part. The
bonds draw 6 per cent Interest and are
lor 10, years. In every way the bids were
satisfactory to the officials, for the credit
of the City of Portland very evidently
stood high in the market.
The bonds will probably be divided
among the bidders as follows:
A. E. Bcnardt $15,000, premium $337.50; A.
E. Echardt $15,000, premium $375; A, E. Ech
ardt $10,000, premium $300; A. H. Maegley
$20,000, premium 2 1-1000 per cent; A. L. Mills
$7000. premium 2 per cent; A. 1L Smith $7000,
premium 2 per cent; H. B. Noble $10,000; pre
mium 2 per cent; J. B. Croassy $1000, pre
mium 3 per cent; Fred longennan $10,000,
premium 2 per cent.
Another feature of the sale was that the
few bids from professional bond dealers
and brokers were not up to the price of
fered by other persons with capital to
invest. The unsuccesful bidders are ap
parently William It. Brewster, Abe Tlch
ner. M. A. M. Ashley & Co., W. J. Kelly,
and J. "W. Cruthers. Eight of Langer
man's bids and four of Noble's are also
below other offers.
Taken all in all the sale compares very
fofvorably with that of the Morrison
street bridge bonds, which are of another
class altogether, and much higher than
any similar set of bids upon street im
provement bonds.
A. E. Echardt is said to be the agent of
the Meier & Frank Company, which has
made a number of successful bids for city
bonds. Langerman is a Spokane capital
ist who has recently acquired Interests
in Portland. The total of all the bids
submitted is $514,000.
What the Press Agents Say.
George Ade's Successful Comedy
Drama at the Marquam Tonight.
There will be a gala night at the Mar
quam Theater tonight, where George
Ade's quaint comedy drama, "The County
Chairman," which Henry W. Savage of
fers for the first titme in this city, will
open an engagement of three nights with
the last performance Saturday afternoon.
Politics, a theme which is as vital and
uppermost at the country crossroads as
it is in the big cities just now, furnishes
the motif for the story, and the author
of the play Is said to have created a num
ber of types of the sort which an audi
ence is sure to recognize as old-time ac
quaintances. Theodore Roberts, the well-known Call
fornian, will be seen In the name part of
Jim Hackler, the County Chairman, and
George Thatcher as the negro floater.
Sassafras. Florence Smythe as Iucy Rig
by; R. J. Dillon as Judge Rlgby; Florida
Kingsley as Chic Elzey, the orphan; "Wil
liam Lamp, as Tilford Wheeler; Florence
Gerald, as Mrs. Briscoe: James Bradbury,
as Jefferson Briscoe: John Gorman, as
Jupiter Pettaway; Grace Romine, as Mrs.
Rigby; Charles Burke, as Uncle Eck, the
oldest Inhabitant; Zenaide Williams, as
Iiorena Watkins, the flirtatious mJUlner;
Will It. Phillips, as the Chicago drummer,
and others, go to make up a remarkably
strong company. Seats are now selling
for the entire engagement.
"In Mlzzoura" Tonight.
"In Mlzzoura" was presented for the
fourth time at the Columbia Theater last
evening and was witnessed by another
large, enthusiastic audience.
This Is the ninth week the m$st popular
company ever in Portland has occupied
the Columbia, and the verdict seems to be
general that In no previous bill have the
popular players shown to better advan
tage. "In Mlzzoura" is a play of strong
heart Interest, one of unstrained comedy
situations, extremely clever dialogue and
yet containing genuine thrills. There is
not a locality in all America that could
furnish the same opportunities for a comedy-drama
as Pike County, Missouri, with
its easy-going, quaint character types,
and there is not a stock company this
side of New York that could give a better
interpretation of the splendid work of
Augustus Thomas.
Under the direction of William Bernard
the local production was made, and The
same careful" attention to detail which
marked Nat Goodwin's presentation is ob
servable at the Columbia this week.
Cordray Reception Today.
In response to many requests it has
been decided to give a special matinee
performance of 'The Fatal Weding" this
afternoon at Cordray'6 Theater at which
Little Miss Gussie Shires, the youngest
star on the American stage will hold a
public reception. This little lady's acting
In the part of "The Little Mother" has
won for her admiration and love of all
who have witnessed her splendid work
since the opening of "The Fatal Wedding"
last Sunday. The engagement closes with
tonight's performance In order to make
room for "The Heart of Chicago" which
comes tomorrow night.
"The Heart of Chicago."
For a limited engagement which opens
tomorrow night and Includes a matinee
Saturday, Cordray's will offer Lincoln J.
Carter's magnificent spectacular melo
dramatic production, 'The Heart of Chi
cago." The play tells a thrilling story
of life in the great Western metropolis,
opening at the time of the historic fire
of 1871 and closing atHhe Columbian Ex
position of 1893. The most notable in
cident of the play Is the scene showing a
locomotive running at ful speed.
Great Moving Pictures.
Thrilling moving pictures of "The Great
Bank Robbery," at the Star Theater,
this week, form one of the most wonder
ful .films ever seen in Portland. The
"Bank Robbery" is on similar lines to
the "Great Train. Robbery" scenes, and.
, 41 anything, is more realistic. The bank
robbers are seen In the act of breaking
the huge safe, and their subsequent pur
suit by a posse makes the spectators sit
with breathless interest until the bold
bandits are finally captured by their dar
ing pursuers.
Another star act is the beautiful lily
dance of Kitty "Rockwell, In which this
jrrtucmtul d&scer Is seen sw&ylsc rhyth
mically while surrounded by dazzling
flames. One minute she is enveloped to
a spider's web, In another she Is a busy
lee, and another changes to a mass of
serpents, and budding flowers quickly
follow. Other great acts arouse the Star
audiences to tumults of applause.
They're Off at the Baker.
The big second-week offering at the
Baker is In every respect equal to the
magnificent programme offered for the
opening. It Includes some of the great
est artists In the various lines of enter
tainment that have ever appeared In
vaudeville, and will satisfy all kinds and
conditions of patrons. Slgnor and
Madame Bolli, the famous grand opera
singers, created a most favorable impres
sion among lovers of classic music with
their beautifully rendered selections from
"II Trovatore." Blgney, the champion
high diver of the world, amazed his audi
ences yesterday with his wonderful feats.
MacLean and Mack, the clever society
comedians, made a hit with their newest
sketch, "The Burglar," and each and
every number on the bill was enthusias
tically greeted. It's a great show. Xou
can rely on that.
Again at the Lyric.
Once again the Lyric shows Its devotion
to the cause of sane and entertaining
entertainment. This week a distinguished
company of vaudeville stars have been
engaged, and their cordial reception indi
cates that they are Just what the public
has been looking for. Heldcndorf &
Krause, In their comedy sketch, were ap
plauded to the echo, and laughter greeted
their every sally on the. occasion, of their
appearances yesterday. Delmas & De
vi rne, the comedy acrobats, hit off the
public taste perfectly, and were voted the
funniest comedians and the most skillful
athletes of the rings ever seen here.
Zolo. Reno and Zolo did their famous
singing, dancing and talking act to the
continual accompaniment of hilarious
laughter. Joe Allman, the prince of
blackface comedians, never appeared fun
nier than yesterday, and Harry Hoyt
pleased all with his beautiful illustrated
song. The Vltascope pictures this week
are positively great.
"Fun In a Gymnasium."
Bubbling with fun Is the act of Clifford
and Smith, at the Arcade Theater. It Is
entitled "Fun In a Gymnasium," and, In
addition to being rapid-fire comedians,
the duo puctuate their wltlclsms with
clever Indian club swinging and a humor
ous boxing match. Parlor magic tricks
and the best of trick banjo and guitar
playing makes the act of the Alvlnos one
of the most novel musical acts on the
vaudeville stage. The show Is full of
novelty acts, and is pleasing the great
Bijou's Big Ha-Ha.
Roscoe changes his hypnotic programme
at the Bijou every day, so that new won
ders may be performed and the same
people return day after day. He makes
you laugh as well as wonder. Jerome
and Lamont have some music of a kind
you'll like to hear. And Newman is a
Happy Hooligan with a big ha-ha.
Meeting Is Held at Y. M. C. A. to
Stimulate Local-Option Forces.
There were a number of very familiar
faces at the prohibition meeting in the
T. M. C. A. auditorium last night to
arouse the temperance vote and make It
rally around the standard of local option
which has been raised. B. Lee Paget, F.
McKercher, Rev. EL T. Allen, of the Cum
berland Presbyterian Church, and Dr. J.
Whltcomb Brougher, of the First Baptist
Church, were among the prolmnent Prohi
bitionists present.
The speeches were forcible, showing that
Prohibitionist spellbinders are more ex
cited over the coming campaign than
those of any other party. Dr. Allen made
a particularly powerful appeal for the abo
lition of rum, and Dr. J. Whltcomb
Brougher's principal remark was that he
is going to hold a prohibition rally In his
church next Sunday afternoon, and that
he and some other ministers will speak

Republicans Will Attempt to Rival
the Fairbanks v. Meeting State
Chairman Baker's Busy Day.
The managing committee of the Repub
lican County Central Committee Is work
ing hard for tho success of the East Side
rally to be held In Burkhard'o Hall on
Saturday evening, November 5, at which
Representative W. B. Humphrey will be
the speaker of the evening. The. commit
tee, consisting of Dan Kellaher, Walde
mar Seton, J. C Jamleson and Alex Don
aldson, has Issued a circular letter to all
of the precinct committeemen of the
county, asking that they be present at a
meeting to be held in the office of Justice
Seton, Grand avenue and East Morrison
street, on Thursday evening, at .which
time the full plans for the rally will be de
cided upon.
Assurances have been received from all
of the speakers that they will be on hand
at the time of the meeting, the other de
tails are rapidly shaping themselves, and
the prospects are that the rally will rank
next In attendance to the Fairbanks
meeting held In the Armory, and will,
with that one exception, be the largest in
the state during the campaign.
Speakers are still being sent out from
the headquarters to the different parts of
the state desiring to hold meetings. Judge
John F. Caples and S. B. Huston, of HIlls
boro, will speak at Gresham on Friday

the local organization for a large meeting.
On the following evening Judgo Caples
will be the orator at a rally to be held
at Rainier, Columbia County.
George W. Staplcton will address a polit
ical meetiqg at Grant's Pass on Saturday
evening next, and a large audience has
been promised him. There Is a hot fight
being conducted at that point over the
prohibition question, and intense political
interest has been aroused.
State Chairman Frank C. Baker was un
able to act as chairman at the rally held
at Salem last night. At the last minute
so .much extra and unexpected business
flooded the office at headquarters that he
was unable to leave Ihe city. He there
fore telephoned his regrets to the man
agement at the Capital City.
There yet remains but a few days until
the close of the campaign, and the Repub
lican headquarters is flooded with busi
ness from all parts of the state. Late
calls for speakers are coming In by the
dozen, all of which Mr. Baker Is trying tq
fill to the best of his ability. From this
time on the life of the state chairman
will be more strenuous, If possible, than
lt has been previously, and he Is expect
ing no rest until the final results are
totaled up on the morning of November 9.

Man Who Declares Caesar Young
Killed Himself Tells All.
NEW YORK, Nov. 1. In defense of Nan
Patterson, the actress now In Tombs
Prison charged with having killed Caesar
Young, tho wealthy bookmaker, in a
hansom cab In West Broadway, this city,
on June 4 last, Milton W. Hazelton, a
prominent business man of Oneonta, Ot
sego County, New York, today appeared
at District Attorney Jerome's office, and
declared in an affidavit that he saw
Young fire the fatal shot. Hazelton said
another man was with him at the time of
the shooting. He does not know the
identity of this witness, however, as he
was a chance acquaintance, attracted by
a Masonic emblem on his watch charm.
He declared his conscience has been trou
bling him so that he finally had to come
forward and tell the story. Hazelton told
Assistant District Attorney Rand that he
Is 7S years old and lives In Oneonta. For
a few weeks previous to the affair ot
June i. Hazelton says he was staying
with the family of Rev. D. W. Crouch,
whose wife is hla cousin, at their home la
Brooklyn. He says he came to this city
to see Joseph H. Hoadley, president of
the International Air Power Company,
with whose father he had been associated
years before in California; that on the
day to which he refers, he cannot remem
ber the date, lie came from Brooklyn
looking for a boiler shop which he thought
was somewhere on the lower West Side.
"Up the street," continued Hazelton, "I
met a man from the West who was at
tracted by the Masonic emblem oh my
watch chain. He spoke to me and we
walked along together. At .first I thought
he was a 'bunco steerer, and was sus
picious of him because I thought that he
wanted to get to me. But he showed me
he was a Mason In good standing and we
went along up the street together.
"I saw a hansom cabt coming toward
me. In this were a man and a woman,
sitting partly facing each other. When I
first saw them they were about 100 feet
away. Their four hands were raised.
From their excited faces and positions I
saw they were. In a commotion of some
kind. My companion saw them at the
same time and said to me: 'Look there.'
Just then I saw the young woman draw
her hands toward her lap, and a minute
afterward I saw the revolver In his hand
and saw and heard It go off. I saw him
fall forward into the lap of the woman.
"The hansom did not stop, but drove by
us, it being near to us when the shooting
Hazelton says that as he and the man
he was with did not wish to be detained
as witnesses, they agreed to say nothing
about what they had seen.
After -making his statement Hazelton
was taken under escort to Bleecker street
and West Broadway, where the shooting
occurred, but was unable to Identify the

November 21 It Will Be Opened as
a FirstrClass Vaudeville
Cordray's Theater has been sold and
Portland la to have yet another vaude
ville theater. By a deal consummated
yesterday afternoon John F. Cordray and
William M. Russell have disposed of
Cordray's Theater, one of the best-known
playhouses on the Pacific Coast, to Sulli
van & Consldlne. who take possession No
vember H and will open it a week later
as a first-class vaudeville house. While
all parties to the transaction decline to
state the amount of the consideration, it
is understood to have been about $50,000.
Messrs. Cordray and Russell entirely re
linquish their Interest In the theater and
the new firm of Sullivan & Consldlne will
In the future operate It In connection with
the circuit of theaters which they own
and control on the Coast. The name will
be changed to the Grand and the week of
November 14 will mark its passing as .a
Stair & Havlin house.
The partnership of Cordray & Russell,
which has existed for nearly two years,
Is dissolved Mr. Cordray retaining the
rights to the Stair & Havlin attractions
and Mr. Russell retiring from the Port
land field. In tho future he will devote
his attention to the Third-Avenue Theater
at Seattle, which he owns.
Mr. Cordray has a contract with Stair '&
Havlin for the exclusive rights to their
bookings in Portland. This contract has
three years more to run and while he has
not definitely decided what course he will
pursue he announces that he will con
tinue to present popular-priced dramatic
attractions In this city. There is much
speculation as to what he will do In the
matter. The Empire stands Idle and
might be secured by him and there is a
rumor that he will secure the Columbia.
Mr. Cordray, however, denies absolutely
that he will negotiate for either of these
houses and the inference is that he wiir
bulld another theater, which he is amply
able to do.
The sale of Cordray's has been ru
mored a number of times recently, but
nothing definite was settled until yes
terday. Manager Russell and John W.
Consldlne came down from Seattle In the
afternoon, and a conference was Imme
diately held In the office of the theater.
Mr. Consldlne mado an offer said to have
been $50,000, which was accepted by
Messrs. Cordray and Russell. This morn
ing the final details will be completed,
and a week from Monday the theater
will be formally turned over to Its new
John W. Consldlne Is the junior part
ner of the firm of Sullivan & Consldlne.
He Is a well-known figure In the North
west, and. In fact, the entire country.
He founded the Fraternal Order of Ea
gles, and has been In the amusement
business for some years. Last Winter
he went to New York, where he became
associated with Congressman Timothy D.
Sullivan, the famous Tammany politician
and theatrical man, in various enterprises
In the metropolis, notably Dreamland,
the great Coney Island amusement park.
Mr. Sullivan now owns three theaters In
Greater New York, the Dewey. Savoy and
Eagle, and he and Mr. Consldlne own or
control the Edison and Orpheum at Seat
tle, the Grand at Tacoma, the Grand and
the Electric at Vancouver. B. C. the
Edison Unique at Bclllngham, and the
Edison at Spokane.
They are erecting a new house at Ta
coma, are contemplating 'building at
Butte, and may Invade San Francisco.
They propose to establish a chain of vau
deville houses across the country from
Minneapolis and St. Paul, and Portland
will probably be the headquarters of the
circuit. Mr. Consldlne will be general
manager of all the theaters, and Freder
ick Lincoln, now manager of the Orpheum
at Seattle, will be local manager of the
Portland house. The price of admission
will probably be 10 cents, although Mr.
Consldlne has not entirely decided this
It has been hinted that this latest de
velopment in the amusement field may
mean much more than appears on the
face of It. Sullivan & Consldlne have un
limited capital at their disposal. They are
securing the largest theaters in the North
west wherever they can. In Tacoma they
are building a magnificent house, capa
ble of accommodating the largest travel
ing attractions. In places where they
now have small theaters they contemplate
supplanting them with large ones, and
they are reaching out to every town ot
Importance In the entire Northwest, with
designs on Sah Francisco.
In view of these facts It Is conceived
that they may be working In connection
with representatives of the "independent"
movement, and after they have secured a
circuit of big theaters in the territory
west of Chicago may use thep string as
a club over Klaw & Erlanger, the so
called trust, and enter the fight for the
theatrical supremacy of the country.
Klaw & Erlanger control the bookings
of 1500 theaters In the United States.
From these 1500 houses they receive a rev
enue of something like 5750,000 a year.
Their royalties on attractions which they
control are said to aggregate another
$750,000. making their total annual income
David Belasco. Harrison Grey Fiske and
the other independent managers, declare
that they will never abandon the fight
on the trust and in view of the enor
mous earnings of the trust may have in
duced Congressman Sullivan, Mr. Const
dine and others to Join them in the "ir
repressible conflict." As yet this Is but
surmise, but It Is not beyond the bounds
of possibility that some such plan Is
contemplated, the 10-cent business being
merely the opening wedge.
Mr. Sullivan is one of the principal
owners of "Dreamland," which cleared
$400,000 during the past Summer, and Is
rated as a multimillionaire. Mr. Consl
dlne said last night that he may move to
Portland, and In such case he will make
this the headquarters of the circuit.
Cordray's Theater is famous all over
the Pacific Coast- It was built In the
early 'SO3 and was known as The Park for
many years. It was unsuccessful until
1S97 and was known as a "hoodoo."
Thousands of dollars were lost by ambi
tious managers in attempting to make It
profitable. It was closed for three or four
years and when John F. Cordray secured
It In the Spring of 1S97 he was alternately
condoled with and laughed at. He set to
work, however, with the indomitable en
ergy which has marked his managerial
career and soon had It on a paying basis.
During the past seven and a half years
It has been one of the most popular and
remunerative theaters on the Coast and
has demonstrated Mr. Cordray's-' good
Judgment In taking hold of a "hoodoo." In
March, 1903, William M. Russell became
an equal partner In the enterprise. The
policy of the house has been to play popular-price
attractions, but this rule has
been frequently varied and some of the
greatest stars and some, of the largest
productions in the country have been seen
there. It has a large and loyal clientele
and Its passing from Cordray's to "The
Grand" Is an Important event.
Mr. Consldlne announces that he will
fill tho Cordray-Ruseell contracts for the
week of November 14, when the attrac
tion book for that time will be seen under
his direction. November 2J. It will be
opened with vaudeville at 10 cents, with
perhaps a few more expensive seats. The
new management states that acts will be
brought from Proctor's, Keith's and sjos
slbly tho Orpheum circuits and tkkt no
expense will he spared to give the pabHc
vaudeville of the higbewt claes.
"I don't know juat what X shall do,"
said John F, Cordray teat evening. '1 may
take a -notion to go to Brpe with Mrs.
Cordray. " My plane are act -settled fcr

Havlin attractions and that they will be
taken care of here.

W. M. Russell, manager of the Third
Avenue Theater at Seattle, In discussing
the change, said:
"Mr. Cordray and myself have severed
a partnership which has been a. singularly
successful and pleasant one. I like Port
land very much and leave with regret, but
my business Interests are now all In
Seattle and.ln the future I ehall make that
city my home."
Mr. Russell and Mr. Consldlne will go
back to Seattle tonight, but the latter will

Housewife Explains Why, With
Others, She Forms Domestic Guild.
PORTLAND. Oct. 3L (To the Editor.)
In answer to the letters from some of the
worklnr girls in Sunday's paper. 1 would
say that while there are hundreds of homes
where domestic helpers are treated, disgrace
fully there are hundreds of homes whose
good housekeepers follow the golden rule,
and whose girls stay with them till they
go to happy homes of their own. I had one
girl for seven years, who was so noble and
competent that had she been a Queen she
would have been a good one.
Now these are the women who are trying
to form this domestic guild; sot because
they have trouble of this kind la their own
homes, but because the home life of Port
land and the Nation is dear to their hearts.
Recent inquiries Into the problems of do
mestic service have opened a new field for
study for every one who realizes the seri
ousness of present-day difficulties and the
need ot Intelligent Investigation ar41 co-operation
rather than of casual gossip, in reach
ing a practical solution. "We must study the
writings of Lucy IT. Salmon. Gene Laughlln
and Jane Addams to be Impressed with the
tact that relief is sot to be found in off
hand theories, but that the fact deserves
scientific study and recognition of its place
in the industrial field by housekeepers as
well as specialists.
These women have no idea of probing into
the personal character of girls beyond their
fitness to do the work for which they are
engaged. They are the true friends of all
girls, sympathize with them in their trials
and are preparing to provide soientific train
ing, because they oelleve that domestic
work should be ennobled. They know that
we take what we are into what we do, and
so either dignify it or degrade it. George
Herbert writes: "Who sweeps a room as for
thy laws, makes that and the action fine."
George Eliot suggests that by desiring what
is perfectly good, even when we don't quite
know what it is and cannot do what we
would we are part of the divine power
against evil, widening the spirits of light
and making the darkness sorrower.
