Holiday Qciet Prevailed, The Port
Innd business district presented an air of
qulot yesterday. With few exceptions,
stores were closed, and the wholesale
quarter was entirely deserted. Saloons,
cigar stores, drug stores and restaurants
lau as usual, andj theaters and other
places of amusement were well patron
ized. All the big department stores were
closed, but during the morning- window
dressers prepared displays for the clear
ance sales which begin at once. Delivery
wagons which have been taxed to their
utmost for a week past were given a
rest, and the drivers needed it. They
were out late Saturday night and many
of them, finished with their work Sun
day mornrlng. The hotels wero not so
crowded as they ordinarily are. numbers
of their guests making visits to the
homes of friends and new arrivals from
outside points were not numerous. Yes
terday was a legal holiday, and conse
quently no business was transacted at the
OourthouBe. Th County Jail was quiet,
and there were but few visitors. Those
who romembered friends in Jail brought
their gifts Saturday and Sunday. The
letter-carriers made a delivery in the
morning, so as to lessen the holiday
rush of packages, which will not be over
with for a week more.
Closing Up Fibbt Quarter. Rev. Li.
B. Rockwell, D. D., presiding elder East
Portland district, is closing up the first
quarter of the conference year, and will
be in Gresham tomorrow, where he will
remain during the day. On Friday ho
goes to Pleasant Home to be with that
church, which Is the center of a consid
erable circuit, which Includes Troutdale
tind Rockwood. Dr. Rockwell reports
excellent conditions prevailing all
through tho Bast Portland district. The
St. Johns Church, which was moved from
lower to upper St. Johns, has been refitted
throughout and provided with electric
ilghts, and three sightly lots have !
been purchased. No debt stands on tho
property. Bishop Moore, resident bishop,
will visit and reopen the church in a few
weeks. At University Park there is a
movement to enlarge the present build
ing, which Is overcrowded since Dr. "Wit
ters became pastor. A. large and modern
edifice will be erected here in tho near
future. The Patton Church, Alblna, Rev.
Asa Sleeth, where $2000 was recently ex
pended In a basement and other Improve
ments, will be reopened with a fitting
programme-some time In February, when
Bishop Moore will honor the event with
Schoolrooms for St. Johns. The di
rectors of School District No. 2. of St
Johns will let a contract at once for erec
tion of two classrooms on the school
grounds. Bids have been received from a
number of contractors ranging from
$513.59 to $1143, In 'company with Princi
pal Teuscher the directors visited Monta
villa a few days ago to examine the
two-room annex recently put up there
for $700 to get an Idea of what Is needed
in St, Johns. The two classrooms will
be built as soon as possible, -so that all
the children of the district may bo housed
at one time. At present several of the
rooms In the lower grades are so crowded
that the pupils can only attend on half
time. Last week It. was found necessary
to put a primary room on half time, as
there were over 50 children crowded into
the room. Inasmuch as it Is recognized
that a permanent annex of at least four
rooms will have to be built next year,
the board Is incurring as little expense as
possible in the erection of the makeshift
classrooms, knowing that they must be
cast aside when the larger structure Is
put up. The directors have broken the
record In holding 26 meetings during the
year to look after the business of the
Result op Church Election. The re
sult of the election of delegations to at
tend the General Assembly of the United
Brethren Churches, held In Oregon and
in other states several weeks ago, will
be announced January 1. The delegates
to be chosen will form the General As
sembly, which convenes In Topeka, Ivan.,
in May. 1905. The announcement 'of the
result Jfi waited with great Interest, for
the organic union with the Methodist
Protestant Episcopal Church and federa
tion with the Congregational denomina
tion, depends on the delegates to tho
General Assembly, at which a final vote
will be taken on those questions.

Police Arrest Emma Mclnnes on Com

Emma Mclnnes was arrested by Police
man Grif Roberts last night upon com
plaint of Edward Larson. She was locked
up in a cell of the women's ward, charged
with larceny from the person. It Is al
leged she robbed the complainant of
money in the Acme Reception saloon,

Reasons Why People Patronize the Columbia Theater 2

I place it In this position for I think all your readers will see it I am
calling attention to the value I give for the money at The Columbia
Theater. Seats are 10c, 15c, 25c, matinees; 15c, 33c, 33c, 50c, evenings. "The
Charity Ball," Belasco & Do MHle's great touching drama (especially ap
propriate for Christmas week) was not put on better- by Daniel Froh
man's original Lyceum Company in New York. The Columbia Is the most
beautiful and comfortable theater in Portland-rflrst-class In every re
spect There Is not a better stock company than tho Columbia in Amer
ica. I doubt If there is as good today. I am gratified to sec that large
numbers of Portland people recognize that they can get 1.50 worth of
high-class entertainment at The Columbia for 50c and I publish this un
varnished and unexaggerated statement so that the facts may become
more widely known. A. H. BALLARD,

night at 9 o'clock Larson refused to make
a complaint although requested to do so
by Policeman, Gibson, who patrols the
beat during the day. At first Larson said
that he had been robbed of ?55. When ho

Much Gratification Over Success of
Exhibition New Officers Elected.
The Oregon State Poultry and Cat
Show, which came to a close last night
made one of the best showings in
blooded stock ever seen in Portland, The
poultry on exhibition was all of a high
order and the birds in fine condition. No
where In the country will finer specimens
or finer breeds be found than right here
in the Northwest and the chicken fanciers
are justified in the pride thay feel over
One of the noticeable Improvement? Is
the fact that where formerly each ex
hibitor used to show from two to a dozen
breeds it is seldom that moro than one is
now shown, which goes to prove that
poultrymen arc making specialties of their
favorite varieties and getting better re
suits than when dabbling in so many
kinds. With tho entire attention given to
one variety the results are naturally bet
ter and consequently poultry raising is
on a higher plane th,an it could possibly
A number of the exhibitors in the show
would have shipped their chickens to Ta
coma but for the fact that the birds have
been caged seven dayp apd some of them
were shipped some distance. Such speci
mens as these are too valuable to take
any chance of losing, and the owners deem
it more prudent to turn them out for
much-needed exercise than to send them
for another week's confinement for the
sake of possible prizes. It may be that
they will be in condition to send to Se
attle on January 5 without running any
There was a better attendance at the
show yesterday afternoon than at any
time since It opened and those who went

made. Last night the annual election of

W. J. Burden presided at the meeting.
H. B. Dickinson, of the water committee,
reported that there was no hope of get
ting Bull Run water, even after the place
was incorporaated. Mayor Williams and
Superintendent Dodge had Informed the
committee that. In their judgment the
city had no water to supply tho people
of Montavilla, as there were sections of
Portland flow calling for moro water. The
committee was also informed 'that while
a large water main was to bo laid from
the" high-service reservoir at Mount Tabor,
that section would not be allowed to take
water from It, as it was Intended to sup
ply the Peninsula and Woodlawn.
Mr. Dickinson said from his consulta
tion with Mayor Williams and the super
intendent he was satisfied that Monta
villa would have to look elsewhere for
water, but that it was possible that Para
dise Springs, the source from which the
Mount Tabor Water Company now se
cures Its supply, would bo open for lease
or purchase inside of two years.
The report was decldely discouraging,
and It was followed by a strong talk
against incorporation from Dr. Deveny,
which was answered by D. W. Butler.
Oratory flowed back and forth for two
hours, when it was decided to let the
question go to the people on a vote. The
committee was appointed with great dif
ficult', as it was realized that it would
have plenty of hard work, but it was
finally named after many had declined to
