"EVEHyMM" 7M IMPRESSIVE DRAMA
For Two Hours Marquam Grand Becomes Sanctuary During: Production of Ancient Morality Play

THE lines above quoted set forth
the motive of the most remarkable
drama over performed before a
Portland audience. I had almost said tho
; most impressive religious ceremony, ;for
the ultimate Impression of the thinking
spectator must be that "Everyman," tho
15th century' morality play -which Ben
Greet's English actors presented at tho
Marquam yesterday afternoon is a roost
unique agent of and for the propagtcndism
of Christianity. The spirit of tho place,
for the time being was changed, and for
two hours the theater became a sanc-
tuary. There were some in the audience
i so frivolous minded that the lesson went
above them. Fortunately, they were in
thtr minority, and to most of that as-
semblage the effect was soul-cloansmg.
How far we Tiave wandered from the
elemential drama could -not have boen
more forcibly demonstrated, for in its ln
I ceptlon, be it remembered, the drama was
essentially religious. There are plays in
these latter years purporting to be reli
gious in character, but they must stand
Indicted as the veriest clap-trap after
the testimony ot "Everyman. Here is
a drama, revived after more than 400
years, thanks to the reverence and artis
tic fidelity of Dr. AVard. of Cambridge
University. It preserves absolutely its
original purpose of edifying rather than"
entertaining. No one seeks the theater
In which it is being presented for the
mere entertainment of it. There may be
tome who go out of idle curiosity, but
even these, save in hopeless Instances,
remain to be purified and ennobled.
The performance of "Everyman In
Portland at this time Is the most memora
ble stage event In the history of the city.
I only wish that all the good, bad and In
different of our citizens might sit under
The effect of it is, first of all, sober
ing. On the way to the theater the spec
tators laughed and chattered of frivolous
affairs. Some sneered and caviled at the
thing they were about to see. Others un
thinkingly came to see the "show." Once
Inside the doors, however, they left
ephemeral affairs. The present-day world
fell away from them and It scarcely
needed the deep tones of the organ some
where behind the stage to impress them
that they were about to see a thing
a"part The attendants whispered in awed
tones and trod reverentially as they seat
ed tho audience. The silence of a monas
tery at vesper-time was over the place.
Occasionally a passing car outside jarred
the solemn quiet with Its noise. One was
prepared to see the spectators kneel at
any moment as pilgrims at a shrine.
It would not have been outside the gen
eral scheme had those present crossed
themselves before sitting.
The stage was set as the cloister-yard
of an old Spanish cathedral and at either
side of it sat a monk In cassock and
cowl, silent and Immovable. The curtain
was up and we sat for minutes looking
wrapt at the scene. Those twentieth cen
tury persons who could not understand
moved uneasily In their seats. All oth
ers were constrained.
Then from afar off came the mellowed
tones of the organ and a voice, the
voice of deity, spoke. For near two hours
thereafter we followed the enactment of
the allegory. "We saw the ghostly form
of Death stalk on, we saw Everyman
summoned to his last accounting, we saw
all his companions fall away from him,
until at last deserted, save by Good
Deeds, he sank into the grave at the
trumpet summons of death.
When all this had passed in review be
fore us, we arose and left the -place with
the mighty spell of the old Monk Dor
land's play upon us.
The following Is the "argument" of
"Everyman" submitted by Ben Greet, the
eminent student and actor-manager to
whom -we owe the privilege of seeing the
After an announcement by a "Messenger,"
God opens the play with the assertion that, as
men arc so drowned In eln and cumbered -with
riches that they have fogotten him, he has
declied to do Justice to them and "have a
rekenynge- of. every mannea persone." He bids
Dcthe, his "mighty messengcre," tell Every
man, to prepare for his last pilgrimage. On
Scaring the unwelcome message Everyman tries
by pleadings and bribes to obtain respite, but
gets enly permission to take companions, if he
can find any hardy enough to accompany him.
Felawshyp enters, and, noticing Everyman's
grief, asks its cause, vowing his readiness to
!!e Jor him. But when he hears his friend's
request, he flatly refuses to go a foot with

lying weak and cold on the ground, .so bound
by his sins that ehe cannot stir, readily con
sents to do all ehe can do for him. She in
troduces blm to her sister Knoledge ("the dis
creet and learned advice -which Religion has
at her service"), and she offers to be his guide.
She brings him before Confession, from whom
he receives) tho Jewel "penaunce, voyder of

the severity of his penance free Good Cedes
and so strengthen her that she can go with him

Ella Laska, who lives on First street, be
tween Mill and Montgomery streets, died
after a lingering illness. Thursday even
ing Mrs. Laska gave birth to a girl babe.
Last night at midnight the family's little
home was gutted by fire and Mrs. Laska
and the babe escaped death only by being
carried from the burning dwelling by the
nurse. Miss Stella Edwards. Everything
in the house but two trunks was de
stroyed by fire. To make the matter
worse, Mrs. Laska's husband Is in far
away Alaska, snowbound on his claim.
An overheated stove set fire to wall
paper In the little dwelling shortly before
midnight last night The nurse was
awakened by the smoke, and immediately
aroused the neighborhood, at the same
time making preparations to carry the
woman and her babe from the building.
They were taken into an adjoining resi
dence. The babe was uninjured, but the
fire started so quickly and so near the bed
whereon Mrs. Laska was lying that the
unfortunate women did not escape with
out being slightly burned about the face
An alarm brought the Firo Department

SALEM WOMAN ENDS HER LIFE
Leona Mcllwain Chooses the Same
Poison as Her Husband.
SALEM, Or., Dec. 9. (Special.) In
despair over the troubles of a sinful life,
Leona Mcllwain committed suicide to
night, just three days after her husband
sought relief by the same means.
Leona Cameron came to Oregon from
"Wisconsin with her parents about IS
morfths ago, and though she was but a
girl In her teen?, began, leading a fast
life. Last Spring she met C. W. Mcllwain,
a young man of good reputation, who
came here from the country to make his
living. The young man became infatu

relatives, married the girl.
Tho two have lived a life of discord
ever since and to end his troubles Mc
llwain took an ounce of carbolic acid last
Tuesday, and died a few moments later.
This evening Mm Mcllwain entered a box
in the Cpuncll saloon and called for a
glass of whiskj'. As the liquor was
brought to her, she held up a phial of
carbolic acid and told the proprietor. John
Cooper, that Fhe was going to take it. He
tried to Interfere, but she fled from him,
swallowing the deadly drug as she ran.
Dr. Byrd was summoned and applied all
remedies, but the woman died at 12 o'clock
tonight. Both Mcllwain and his wife came
of highly respectable families. Mrs. Mc

COOS' FISH-EGG CROP.'
Over 6,000,000 Salmon Roe Taken by
MAKSHFIELD, Or., Dec. 9. (Spc
clal.) In view of the reports from the
Columbia River that the take of sal
ro, eggs at the hatcheries this year
Is less than one-fourth what it was for
1903, It is gratifying to the fishermen
hero to know that the state hatchery
on Coos River has had the most suc
cessful run In its five years' history.
Before Thanksgiving- the capacity of
the hatchery, 6,000,000- eggs, had been
reached, but the take ot -eggs con
tinucd. Enough to half fill the hatch
ery again have been taken and fertll
Ized, and for lack, of a better place to
put them they have been deposited
among tho river gravel just as the fish
tnomseives would do.
superintendent Frank W. Smith has
boen with the plant since it started. He
planned at tho outset of this season to
take 15.000.000 eggs, but he mav fall
short. The record of the hatchery for
nve yoars is as touows:
In this table no account is taken of
uio eggs Deyond the capacity of tho
natcnery. it is true that many mora
eggs might be fertilized, but it is not
so mucn the eggs us the young salmon
that need care. It is to be doubted if
many of the eggs fertilized and returns
to tho river ever produce fish who live to
get to the ocean. Bull trout are waiting
in. mo nver u acvour tne young fry the
moment, tney leave tne spawning nest.
-iiucn ot tne worK or the hatchery is
nullified by the fact that the fry have to
be put into the river before they are old
enough to care for themselves. There
should be a pond built on the hatchery
grounds where tne young salmon could be
kept for the first year.
The south fork of the Coos River is an
Ideal place for a hatchery. After the
saimon pass tne junction of the two
forks they are protected by law. and no
longer have VJo run the gauntlet of gill
nets and seines. From the junction to
tne neaa oi uacwater is a distance of
about ten miles, the water in places 40
feet deep. Here the salmon bask for
months at a time until Nature prompts
them to leave for the spawning grounds
higher up. This Is usually with the rise
in the river from the first Fall rains.
Hatchery Near Tidewater.
The hatchery site Is at the bead of tide
water, a. few yards above the first riffles,
where the river has a sandy bottom and
merges again into a deep hole. The candy
bottom makes good seining. The hatch
ery buildings arc on the river bank In a
grove of myrtle, some 30 feet above low
water. They arc not quite high enough.
for the flood In January last year made
It necessary to slDhon the young fry
from the troughs to keep them from be
ing washed" away. The first rack and the
pens are built Just at the head of the rif
fles, and the big rack that keeps the sal
mon from going farther up stream Is 300
or 400 feet distant.
"When the big freshet comes the salmon
move up stream by the thousand. One
can go out at night and watch them
climbing over the rocks In schools like
sheep. The take of eggs at that time Is
limited only by the force of men.

spawning nest. They are driven on by
the white-tails already in possession of
too rocks at the riffles, and are caucht
between the racks. But a doe that comes
In on the tide at 12 or 1 o'clock at night
would be spawned out before morning,
if left to herself on the shallow gravel.
Therefore Superintendent Smith and his
assistant, Clell Hobson, are on duty night
and day through the spawning season.
They will get up at 2 o'clock in the morn
ing and seine the pond for two fish.
How Eggs Are Secured.

MBS. aiAYBIUCK'S OWN STORY.
By special arrangement with her pub
lishers. The Sunday Oregonlan tomor
row will publish a page epitome of "Mrs.
Maybrick's Own Story: My Fifteen Lost
Tears." In seclusion and under the
shelter of a friend's roof, Mrs. May
brick, ever since- her arrival In America,
hao devoted all her time to this recital.
It Is literally her own story and pitifully
two men could not pull the seine. But
they will land 100 safely enough, and have
tne salmon so thick In the first pen that
uiey will sometimes JumD over the too.
There is much floDDlntr till the net Is
landed and the gate closed.
The men inside the pen begin to sep
arate the males from the females and
test each one to see if it Is riDe. One
should be careful In reaching down Into
tne pen to grasp a salmon by the tail
not to get bis Angers In another salmon's
mouth. A man on Coos River some vears
ago died from the bite of a salmon.
The average weight of the royal Chin
ook salmon Is given by Dr. Jordan as 22
pounds. Superintendent Smith has a the
ory that salmon can be bred up like cat
tie or horses. This year he used only the
larger Ducks, and by this process of se
lection he hopes to increase the size of the
salmon. Many fish were taken at the
Coos River hatchery this' year that
weighed 50 and CO pounds, and the aver
age must have been above 20. It is t
good man who can swing a 50-pound buck
salmon under his arm and strip the milt
from him without letting him knock the
bucket over. Doe salmon were taken
with 10.000 eggs in them.
Club Kills Mother Fish.
The does are handled very gently until
the last moment arrives. Then they are
held up by the tall and killed by being hit
over the head with a club. The tall Is
then cut through till the backpono is
severed. This lets every drop of blood
drain out. Any blood on the eggs is
fatal to them, and so it is drained off be
fore the eggs are taken. Formerly the
eggs were stripped by running the hand
down the length of the fish, the eggs
spouting out like grain from an elevator.
But this was slow work, and the thin
filmy covering of many eggs was broken
Then they tried slitting the fish from top
to bottom and dipping the eggs out with
the hand. This was also slow work. Su
perintendent Smith makes a transverse
incision near the tall after the fish is
fastened in the long narrow box, holds his
hand over the aperture till the head is
elevated, removes "his hand and the eggs
all run out Into the bucket.
The eggs must be handled very carefully.
Until they are fertilized they can be
left for a time In the air without injury,
The milt also can be kept In a bucket
for several hours before use. The eggs
are covered with water, and then th
milt Is poured on and the mass gently
stirred. After that It Is fatal to the eggs
to strike the air. After three to eight
minutes most of the milt is washed off.
the eggs put in another bucket and count
ed in a 1000-measure Into the baskets in
the hatchery. The salmon eggs are
beautiful deep pink and the size of a
large pea. This big egg makes the food
sack for a month for the young fry. Af
ter about 40 days If the temperature of
the water Is 54 degrees, the egg hatches
and the fry slips through the wires of
the basket and out into another trough.
All the time the water from a creek
at the natural temperature Is kept flow
ing over the eggs and the fry- It Is this
flow of water that has given Mr. Smith
much concern. The source of his trouble
Is a crazy hermit who threatens destruc
tion and death to the hatchery- He drew
a gun on the men one day, and has often
said he would kill them.
The hatchery tenders have to watch
the dam In the creek constantly to keep
the crazy man from tearing It out. To
this end they have arranged an electric
bell that gives warning night or day. If
the supply of water stops, a board float
ing on the surface is lowered, making a,
contact that rings the bell. The crazy
man. or some one else, cut the dam a fow
days ago with an ax. and the only thing
that saved this year's entire catch of
salmon eggs was tho bell.
