Executive Board Discusses

Members Agree That Tanner-Creek

as to Who Shall Make
Behind closed and guarded doors the
members of the Executive Board' of the
City of Portland met yesterday afternoon
and talked. The while they, talked they
beat the tables with their fists and In
dulged in other expressions of earnest
ness. Though the meeting lasted for
over two hours and the sole topic 'Of the
gathering was 'sewer,' no official "action
was taken and the members' went to din
ner no nearer a solution of the problem
than when they left the breakfast table.
Mayor "Williams presided and listened
patiently to the oratory of the gathered
dignitaries. George Howell arose in his
place, thumped the polished table soundly
and gave vent to divers statements con
vminp q(wprs in trenernl and the notori
ous Tanner-Creek in particular. After
Mr. Howell naa exnauscea tne topic, rec
ommending sundry ways out of the diffi

seat and gave the floor to Big Sichel.
Mr. Sichel also exhausted the subject

In Mr. Sichel's direction, and after that
gentleman had finished, several bounded
to their feet demanding that they
have the right to express their thoughts
and feelings. For two hours thereafter
they did so, yet whon the members issued
once more into the comparatively free
air of the corridors they one and all
stated that every one had been sworn

secret anyway, because the Board had
done nothing. They were simply getting
opinions. City .Engineer .amon was pres

that the sewer would cither have to be

HAY SENDS HIS THANKS.
Writes Letter to the Portland Chanr
faer of Commerce. .j
The board of trustees of the Portland -Chamber
of Commerce will meet this
morning at 11:30 o'clock for the trans
action of the business of the month. Many
routine matters will be brought before
Yesterday the secretary of the Cham
ber received a letter from Secretary of
State John Hay. In which the receipt of
resolutions passed by the Chamber was
acknowledged. Tho resolutions were
passed on November 23 and urged the
Government to take some action favor
able to the ratification of treaties with
Great Britain. France, Germany, Italy and
Austria, by which the International arbi
tration of all differences would be secured.
Mr. Hay, in his note, thanks the Cham
ber for the interest which Is displayed for
the good of the country, and states that
the department Is always thankful to re
ceive notice of such resolutions, inasmuch
as they show the interest of the people
cf the country 4n seeking for and welcom
ing any practical means of averting war
and bloodshed by arbitration and In ex
tending the sway of peace over the world.
Edwin M. Randall, general secretary of
the Dpworth League, of Chicago, has
written to the Chamber asking that all
information relating to the Northwest and
Portland conveniently at hand be sent to
him at an early date. Mr. Randall has
been asked to deliver a series of lectures
on the Northwest before the ministers of
Chicago and is seeking for data for this
purpose. The request will be complied
with as. in tho opinion of the secretary,
the lectures will have much to do with
the placing of the Northwest before the
people of the Middle west. As it is evi
dent that the addresses will be of an edu
catlonal nature, and will be given before
men who will have an opportunity to
spread the Information they receive, the
Chamber of Commerce thinks that no bet
ter way couli be arranged for the en

to the many advantages of this section
of the United States.
AT THE THEATERS
What the Press Agents Say.
MELODRAMA AT COLUMBIA.
"Prodigal Daughter" Holds Audience
Spellbound With Interest.
Portland hss a clear title to the pride
it entertains for the Columbia Theater
and its talexted aggregation of players.
Last week ftrce-comedy held the boards
and laughter had full sway.
This week melodrama rules supreme
and those wlo stirred to mirth now woo
the ready tear.
It is this versatility, this power to com
pel all sensatbns in- turn, that proves the
sterling ability of Portland's popular stock
There are melodramas and melodramas.
The "Prodigal Daughter" belongs to the
class that dos not bear the stamp of
"penny dreadfil." It thrills, it Inspires,
it moistens th eye, but it does not vio
late the possilllitles and create giggles.
It is legltlmaie drama of the "Led
Astray." "Celebrated Case" and "Two
Orphans" class and it holds the audience
from the first using of the curtain to the
final falling trureof.
"The Little Outcast.".
Lovers of mtlodrama regret that there
are so few musical numbers and special
ties Introduced, into the play, but probably
they have nt looked for the reason,
which Is this; The vaudeville field Is a
tempting one to any artist who has a
specialty to exjlolt, as It means high sal
aries and less routine work; consequently
managers of milodramas find It a difficult
task to com)ete with the vaudeville
houses. "A Litle Outcast," which is the
attraction at tie Empire Theater tonight
and tomorrow tight, is a marked excep
tion to this rule as the management out-
priced the "continuous" managers and
have secured artists who have new and
striking specialties. xJiesc are Inter
spersed through the acts with good enect
and give an added zest to the production.
While "A Little Outcast" Is styled as a
production, with "no stars but the play,"
several prominent people are Included in
its roster, including Mr. Mllllcent Evans,
Walter F. Harmon and Little Dolly Du-
pree, who cheated the part of "Bob. '
"The Fatal Scar."
At" the Empire Theater, Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday nights of this week.
the realistic and touching melodrama,
"The Fatal Scar," will be presented, with
a strong cast and elaborate scenery.
Its pathos Is affecting, Its mirth irresis
tible, and its dramatic situations strong
and stirring. It is presented with great
realism both in its setting and in the ac
tion, which reveals with marked clear
ness and force its very strong plot.
With the company, which Is made up of
well-known and capable players, as an
added feature Is Frank James, the brother
of Jesse James, the only one of the fa
mous band living. "Who is there today
that nas not heard with wonder of the
deeds of these two men this their oppor
tunity to see him and listen to him speak
In a manner and on a subject' of Interest

Aid Society Benefit.
One of the special features in the bene
fit entertainment to be given by the "Tha
llan Girls" on next Friday evening for
the benefit of the Boys' and Girls' Aid
Society is the specialties to be Introduced
between acts, among which are topical
songs by Thomas Dobson, the boy so
prano. His beautiful clear soprano voice
when once heard Is never to bo forgot
ten, and many Portlanders will be glad
to avail themselves of again hearing -him.

POINTED SENTENCES FROM JACOB A. RIIS' LECTURE
The slum is where all the influences tend to unrighteousness" and the
corruption of the young.
You can fight fire from behind, but the way to conquerit Is to get In"
front with the hose.
When we have established the juvenile court, -provided the "free play
ground and given the children of the poor a chance, then we will' have
battled successfully with the slum. ' '
There may be race suicide on Fifth avenue, but. there Is none In Mul
I have known twice as much drunkenness due to poverty as I have
poverty due to drunkenness.
Whon you make the home bright and pleasant as the saloon, then you
do much to cure drunkenness.
I have seen tho worst side of human nature for the last 25 years, and
yet my conviction, deep and abiding, is that the boy is not naturally bad.
We make the schoolhouses as beautiful as possible in the slums. It docs
not make so much difference where the rich people live.
When you grow an Ideal in the slum you destroy the slum.
There is a thing which you will yet run up against, in your town and
that Is the deadly inertia of the good people of the town.
I have lived in the darkness and have laid in the slough; and I have
seen tho sunlight come in and know that God lives In the human mind and
heart and will not allowthe good that has been gained to be lost again.
With the sunlight comes decency every time.
The world owes no man a living. It Is like a big bank from which
we may all draw in that proportion in which we deposit to our account.

JUDGE BELLINGER DECISION.
Eight Are Handed Down In Federal.
Judge Bellinger yesterday handed down
eight decisions in the Federal Circuit
In the case of John J. Cambers vs. the
First National Bank of Butte, he sus
tained the demurrer to the complaint. It
was an action to recover $10,0$) deposited
by the plaintiff as indemnity for Andrew
J. Davis and George A. Andrews against
liability on two Injunction bonds exe
cuted by them In behalf of Cambers.
In the case of Rea Brothers against
S. B. Barber, the demurrer was over
ruled. It was an action brought upon a
contract executed by an agent- of the
plaintiffs amounting to $1500, which was
repudiated subsequently by the defend
ants. The petition for rehearing in the case of
the Columbia River Packing Company vs.
W. E. Tallant was denied. It was a
suit brought to recover $4785.40. and decis
ion had been in favor of the defendant.
The pethion was asked for on ground of
error of the court.
The court decided in several cases
brought by the United States against the
Oregon & California Railroad that the
United States was entitled to recover the
original Government price of lands taken
by the company unlawfully and afterward
sold to innocent parties. The suit was
brought to cancel patents issued to tho
company and to recover the price of tho
lands, which had been sold to bona fide
DISCUSSED THE GRIEVANCES.
Lumbermen and Loggers Meet In Con
ference in Seattle.
S. Benson, of the Benson Logging &
Lumber Company, Hollis Alger, of the Al
ger Logging Company, and S. Chapman,
of the Chapman Lumber Company, have
returned from a trip to Seattle, Where
they met with representatives of the Co
lumbia Basin Loggers on Saturday last,
to discuss plans to bring their griev
ances beforeha next session of the Legis
lature. Another conference will be held In Ta
coma today between representatives, of
the Tacoma loggers and a committee ap
pointed by the meeting held in Seattle on
last Saturday. The loggers want to have
changes made in the Washington laws
which will give them the right to con
struct logging roads out of the forests
and over the lands of other men, and also
to use the streams for the purpose of
floating their logs out of the forests,, to
the river. Under the present law this
cannot be done if the outside owners ob
ject, and the men in the interior are thus
bottled up In the moutalns. with no way
of getting their lumber out to the mar
kets. UNSETTLED ELECTION BET.
Two Eastslders Waiting Result of the
There is an unsettled election bet of $5
between John L. Sperry, a well-known
Democrat, and Mich Oiler, a Republican.
Mr. Sperry demonstrated his confidence
in the success of Parker over Roosevelt
by betting that the former would receive
two-fifths of the total vote cast at the
November election, and Mr. Oiler bet that
Roosevelt would receive over three-fifths
of the total vote cast.
According to the figure given In yes
terday morning's Oregonian Mr. Sperry
may win the bet by a small margin. The
dispatches give the total vote at 13,534,119.
Of this Roosevelt received 7,G40,550, or
2,540,169 more than Parker. Mr. Sperry
figures out that Parker receives COO votes
more than two-fifths -of the total, and
hence he wins the bet. But some more
returns may wipe out this margin and
make Oiler the winner yet. .

Battles in New "York,
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OFSTRIFE
Noted Reformer Tells How Haunts of

formed Into Parks and
Jacob A. Klls may have come from
Denmark, homeless and ragged and poor;
he may still talk with the traces of his
boyhood tongue upon his utterances; he
may lack the polished precision of speech,
the balance of sentences and the clarity
of diction found in the classics of the old
time orators, but still what he says
charms and thrills. There Is an earnest
ness and go, a ring of conviction and a
note of sincerity which draws his audi
ence to him and makes It see and feel as
It may be that his subject has to do
with it; that the world-old story of pov
erty and misery and woe is part of the
force that draws, for his tale of the fight
with the slums and the evils there found
is new to the people of the West.
Tho Young Men's Christian Association
auditorium was packed to overflowing last
night when Mr. Riis began his lecture,
and for two hours and over the audience
sat, one-half braving the draught that
the other half might breathe, while the
man who has fought against the ovils
of the tenement district of New York
told of his battle and showed by word
and picture the results obtained.
HoIrs of Darkness Described.
It was a devious path that the lecturer
took his listeners along; one that ran In
pleasant places and in holes of darkness
and sin and crime. He threw upon the
canvas and described the old tenements
of 25 years and more ago those places in
which no light ever shone or no .gladness
"ever came. He" pointed out the basement
halls and corridors thrbuch the darknosa
of which the little children of the poor
crawled amid the filth and waste of the
common sinks, and told of the fact that
only one out of four of these children ever
lived to be full grown. Ho pictured the
light shafts, five feet In width and many
stories deep, from which thousands se
cured their light and air. He led his
cringing companions into Bandits' Roost
and Bottle Alley, those two old-time fost
ers on the boll -of Mulberry Bend, and
showed them the founlainhcad of the mur
ders and crimes of old New York.
PaIntsNa Brighter Picture.
Then turning to brighter things he pic
tured upon the canvas the gardens that
today mark the spot where these holes
of harm flourished, the parks that mark
the sites of the old tenements in many
places, the playgrounds that have been
provided and the results that have been
attained by 25 years of unrelenting war
fare against the greed and selfishness of
the rich at the expense and death of the
poor. The new tenements that havo been
built. Into every room of which the sua
light comes; theschools erected and made
beauty spots In the poor districts of the
town: the new environment, wore all de
picted In a graphic manner, while the
humanity of the man won burst after
burst of applause as he exhibited his
heart by the words he spoke.
Mr. frils to Lecture Friday.
Before tho opening: of the lecture Dr.
Stephen S. wise was introduced by W.
M. Ladd. Dr. Wise announced that Mr.
Riis had consented to return to Port
land on Friday next and would on that
evening deliver his lecture on "Tony's
Hardships," at the Temple Beth Israel.
Everyone would be welcome and there
would bo room made for all that the
temple could accommodate. Dr. Wise
was formerly a co-worker with Mr.
Rlls In his efforts in New York and Is
an old friend and companion of tho lec
Mr. Ladd in Introducing the speaker
said that he felt that Oregon had one
claim upon the speaker. He did not
think that Mr. Rlls would want to come
to a state that had not given President
Roosevelt a rousing majority in the
last election. Therefore knowing that
the state had done its best, he was sure
that the traveler would feel at home
among Its people.
Mr. Rlls in speaking uses no notes
IT WAS NO DREAM
Even Though Nearly Incredible.
"For 20 years I suffered with piles
sometimes being confined to my bed for
days at a time. The relief received from
doctors, both In the United States and
Mexico was temporary and more fre
quently I received no relief; other medi
cines had no effect; it was a continual
drag; I was fit for nothing. I Anally
tried Pyramid Pile Cure; first appilca
tlon was magical; I could not believe I
was awake next morning. I experienced
a relief I had not known for 20 years.
"One box cured me, but not believing
myself cured I bought two more and
they are still In my trunk. I first used
this remedy in July. 1502; HAVE HAD
NO OCCASION TO USB IT SINCE. The
world should know of Pyramid Pile Cure.
I have no words to express its merits.'
E. A. Leonard, Nueva Calle de San An
tonlo de las Huertas No. 5, City of Mex
Pyramid Pile Cure Is In the form of a
suppository, which Is admitted to be the
best form of treatment for piles; It
comes In direct contact with the painful
tumors and does its work quickly and
painlessly. It Is sold by druggists gen
erally, for 50 cents a package, and there
Is no other remedy "Just as good." Write
Pyramid Drue Co., Marshall, Mich., for
their little book describing the cause and
cure of piles, as It is sent free for the
and talks rapidly and without effort, as
though In conversation with a friend.
He makes no effort at effect, and thus
gains it. During- the short time spent
with him last night it Is safe to say hl3
hearers learned more of the life of the
New York poor than could havo Deen
gleaned from a dozen books.
The lecturer spent the day yesterday
In looking over the city and in visiting
with friends here. He was visited at
his hotel by many of the reform work
ers of the city and spent a part of the
day in riding over the scenic lines try
ing to gain some idea of Portland's
natural beauties. He was much disap
pointed that he did not get a glimpse of
Mount Hood and the surrounding
ranges, but hopes to do so on his return
during the latter part of the week.
Hopes to See Mount Hood.
"I may decide to stay around until I
do see It." he said last night. "I waited
in Tacoma for eight days before Mount
Tacoma surrendered and came out from
behind the veil. Perhaps Mount Hood
would do the same."
Mr. Riis leaves today for Seattle and
will return here Friday. After his lec
ture here he will go on to- San Fran
cisco to fulfill his engagements there.
