HOUSECUEANING CAUSES FIRE. An
alarm of fire from Tenth and Morrison
streets, about 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon, called the department to quench a
blaze at 16SV Tenth street, but when the
firemen arrived upon the scene the fire
was extinguished. An investigation
showed that an ambitious house
wife had attempted to cleanse the
moulding in a rcm by use of gaso
line and In her efforts to do the work well
had lighted a match to see better.
There was a flash Immediately and the
four walls of the room had a border of
flame, while the woman sought the street,
badly frightened. As soon as the gasoline
burned from tho moulding the fire died
out without doing more damage than
badly smoking the ceiling.

Seated on a high stool, and amid the
gloom of a darkened stage, Vladimir de
Pachmann gave a Chopin matinee recital
at the Marquam Grand Theater yester
day afternoon, and played selections of
calm, serious beauty with little dynamic
effect. He was enthusiastically received,
but because of his habit of almost Imme
diately commencing anotlier selection the
moment the first one is finished, the ap
plause was cut short. The house was
well filled upstairs and about half of the
ground-floor seats were occupied. De
Pachmann began to put fire into his work
when he reached the valse, A flat major,
and he received two recalls, but contented
himself with bowing his thanks. The
same thing happened when he finished the
quatrieme scherzo in B major. Here
three recalls were given, but he came and
solemnly bowed his thanks. It was evi
dently not De Pachmann's smiling day.
But all the same his Chopin was eml
neptly satisfying. Chopin Is the quin
tessence of fine sentiment and romance,
and most musicians are agreed that he
roics or dynamics into a. Chopin pro
gramme must come from independent
reading of the composer's thoughts. More
quietly elegant playing of Chopin than Do
Pachmann's has never been heard here.
His treatment of the marche funebre, in
the sonata in B flat minor, was of gem
like beauty and no one except a piano
virtuoso could hope to add to the value
of De Pachmann's playing of the two
valses. His fingerings and technique are
fully up to expectations, and the liquid,
sparkling tone is a delight.
The soul of Chopin seemed again to live
in the somber, awesome notes. One of
the great melodies of the world Is in the
nocturne in G major, and De Pachmann
fully brought out its beauty. On closer
acquaintance. De Pachmann lacks fire,
and is best in Chopin. De Pachmann plays
tonight In Seattle, and his next 'concert
Is at Denver, February 24, unless he
makes new arrangements. Yesterday's
concert was under the direction of Misses
Lois Steers and Wynn Coman. J. M.
Lucas Forsakes the Field.
SPOKANE, Wash.. Feb. 13. The base

fine his new Northwestern League to the
cities of Vancouver. B. C; Victoria, B. C:
Bellingham and Everett, which is consid
ered a much more feasible plan than his
first proposition of taking In Spokane,
Butte. Helena. Victoria, Vancouver and
Salt Lake.
Tho Pacific National League will in
clude the cities of Spokane. Butte, Salt
Lake. Boise, Helena and Ogden. The
Lucas league Was recognized by the Na
tional Association, but the Pacific Na
tional was ready to outlaw rather than
surrender to him. and had leases on the
ball parks of each city in the league, so
the Northwestern would have had to
spend a large amount of money to start.

EXHIBIT 18 COSTLY
Treasures of Orient to B
Shown at Exposition, ,
COMMISSIONER A. KOUN HERE
Brings Displays Worth Thousands of
Dollars for the Oriental Build
ing and Novel Attractions
for -the Trail.
Gaston Akoun, commissioner from
Persia, Turkey .and Egypt to tho Lewis
and Clark Fair, arrived last night and
will be followed shortly by one of the
most beautiful' and varied exhibits to
be housed in the Oriental building. It
will be worth many hundreds of thou
sands of dollars and will fill one
fourth of the entire space of the Orient
al building.
Akoun Is an artist and a lover of tho
beautiful. He has had, besides, much
experience In exposition work, and
above all he has the material with
which to work. The great exporting
houses of the Orient have consented to
display here their most valuable mate
rial. All the richness and splendor of
Eastern luxury, the gold, the Ivory, the
mother of pearj,. the gorgeous rugs, tho
ancient brasses, all that goes to make
up the splendor and glamour of the
Orient will be on display. It is merely
for Mr. Akoun to choose.
Bhumgara & Co. have a sandalwood
tcmplo which took 25 men seven years
to make It stands G5 feet high, is
carved into many fantastic shapes and
is inlaid with mother of pearl, ivory
and gold and silver. There is not a nail
in it. It is rich in perfume and will
scent the -whole Oriental building -with
its fragrance. It is valued at 575,000.
This Mr. Akoun can state with pride
will occupy the center of his exhibit.
Valuable Exhibits to Be Shown.
Kelikian & Co. arc the best-known
collectors of Oriental antiques. Mr.
Kelikian, the head of the house, "has a
collection of antiquities which are
valued at ?350.QOO and arc kept all the
time in the vault of the Bank of France
in Paris. These things he considered too
valuable to display at SL IxjuIs, but
he told Director of Exhibits H. E.
Dosch last Summer he would send them
here, and Mr. Akoun bears word now
that they are sure to come. This will
undoubtedly be the most valuable sin
gle exhibit at the Fair. Mr. Kelikian
has many other displays besides which
he "will . send here. A. K. Bistany, an
other great exporter, will havo displays
of rugs, both Persian and Turkish. The
space for these exhibits will not bQ
taken up by the rugs which are known
in this country, but the rarer varieties
of silken ones. One of the rugs which
will be displayed here fs valued at $35,
000 an! another at $17,000. The latter
was on display at St. Iouis and a
wealthy merchant offered $15,000 for it,
but he was refused.
Oriental Shows for the Trail. -The
display will be a 'combination of
all the most beautiful things of the
Orient. Mr. Akoun will have sole charge
of toe collection and he is well fitted
for the task. He has been one of the
largest concepsionares at every fair
hell In this country. He will have be
sides this exhibit the concession for all
the Oriental displays on the Trail. Ho
will have an attraction there, which,
he says, will surpass any of his previous
efforts in that direction. He has not yet
decided what he will call the attrac
tipn. but It will be In the form of a
street, at which every variety of Ori
ental architecture will be represented
and every kind of Oriental goods sold.
Tho graceful Oriental dances will be
held there! and with Mr. Akoun the solo
concessionaire in this sort of thing,
there will be no dances to which objec
tion can ho made.
"With Gaston Akoun is his brother,
Fernand, who had the best-paying show
on the Pike at St. Louis. He will havo
a show here after the same fashion,
-which he will call the Temple of Mirth
or Foolish House. This will contain
deceptive mirrors, the mystic maze,
the cave of the winds, "bump tho
bump," thundering floors, moving stair
ways and a dozen other fun-producing
devicos.
UTAH WILL BUILD PAVILION
Delegation En Route Here to Select
Suitable Building Site.
Utah, which it was feared might not
participate in the Lewis and Clark Fair,
is about to appropriate $20,000 in addition
to the $10,000 appropriated two years ago.
With this it will erect a state building and
provide a creditable display of the state's
resources in the regular exhibits building.
Special Commissioner J. P. Marshall,
who has been in Salt Lake attempting to
bring this about, has written home that
his mission has now a successful termina
tion in sight and that there is no fear but
that Utah will participate fully. For a
time, though, it was very much doubted
if that state could be induced to come
here.
Thomas W. Hull. Speaker of the House,
has left Salt Lake for Portland and will
choose a site for the state building while
here- Ho is accompanied by President
Benjamin Goddard. of the Bureau of In
formation, in Salt Lake.

After the Famous Vatican Exhibit.
Renewed efforts are being made by
Director of Exhibits Dosch to secure
tho famous Vatican exhibits, which are
being held in this country pending or
ders from -the Vatican for their return.
About a year ago Rev. T. J. McNally.
formerly of the cathedral. Portland,
volunteered to try to procure the ex
hibit for the '05 Fair, but did noi suc
ceed, owing to the fact that the Fair
directors did not see their way to ad
vancing necessary money thereto, and
as Father McXally's connection with
the Portland diocese was at the time
permanently severed, and the amount
demanded could not be conveniently
furnished, the matter was allowed to
drop until recently revived by Colonel
Dosch, who now thinks "he sees his
way to securing the exhibit, and free
of all expense, through Influential ac
tion of the papal delegate aj. Washing
ton, with whom he Is in communication.
