Funeral of S. M. Marks. "With the
funeral of S. M. Marks, which took place
yesterday afternoon from Holman's un
dertaking; chapel, passes another of the
few survivors of the old East Portland
regime. At a time when East Portland
was strongly Democratic, Marks was
elected constable of the justice of the
peace court three times. Before he was
elected Maries was driver of an express,
but his popularity carried him through.
He was a. good officer and became so fa
miliar with the processes of lawsuits -a
a justice of the peace court that he "be
came quite 'a practitioner himself, dis
playing considerable skill In the manage
ment of the cases entrusted to him. When
Marks was constable the fee system was
In force, and the East Side justice did
an immense business, both criminal and
Erecting Building of Concrete
Blocks. Edward Sharkey is having a
two-story building, with hollow concrete
walls, bullj. on Union avenue, alongside
his brick factory on East Pine street.
This is the first building to be put up
with concrete blocks shaped like the let
ter "T." While the walls are hollow and
me air circulates freely through them,
the blocks of concrete of which they are
instructed, are bound together In con
crete mortar' forming walls like solid
tuone. It is said that such walls keep
cut all moisture and make a building as
near fire proof as it is possible to make
a structure. As this is the first building
to be erected here entirely of concrete
blocks It is attracting much attention
among builders of this city, and a curious
crowd watch the men at work constantly.
Work on Buhnside Bridge. Work on
Burnslde bridge is progressing. At the
East Side approach all the piles have
been driven for several new bents that
had to be replaced, and the concrete re
taining wall is completed. The pile driver
was removed to the West Side Saturday
and will be in operation there this week.
Work on replanking the surface will be
gin to-day. It will be about two weeks
before the bridge Is reopened for travel.
Business men on East Burnslde are ex
periencing a period of dullness, s'ich as
the business men on East Morrison suf
fered while the Morrison bridge was be
ing rebuilt.
"Police- Judge Kraemer. So will Otto
J. Kraemer be known in the future if the
lawyers of Portland have their way, and
the office being strictly judicial It looks
as if the desire of the 134 members of the
bar, who, regardless of party affiliation,
endorsed him, will be fulfilled, as the
lawyers have always controlled judicial
positions in the past when they took the
matter in their own hands. They cer
tainly are best qualified to judge and es
pecially in this instance, as Mr. Kraemer
has been tried two terms as justice and
jiroved himself able and conscientious.
Therefore are the lawyers confident that
he will make an excellent municipal

Hazel and Thomas Longster. two col
ored children aged 11 and 4 years, re
spectively, were taken Into custody yes
terday afternoon by the police unon the
receipt of a telegram from the Astoria
authorities stating that the children had
been abducted. They were found at
87 North Fifth street in company with
Henry Busby, a colored cook from As
toria, who claimed ihe boy as his own
fhild. The children are being cared for
at the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society. Mrs.
Longster, the mother of the two children,
arrived In Portland last night from As
toria. Mrs. Longster last night stated that
Busby was not the father of the boy and
that she could prove it. She said she
had been, living withBusby for several
years, but recently cruel treatment at his
hands compelled her to leave him. He
tried to make her come back to him. but
she refused. As a Jast resort she says
he stole the children with the hopes of
forcing her into a reconciliation. It is
understood the children came to Port
land Saturday.

part of his time this Summer at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition," said Mrs.
Frank Wiggins, who, with Mrs. J. A.
Filcher, will be the hostesses at the
California building, at the Imperial
Hotel yesterday. "His family, which
consists of Mrs. Pardee andfour
daughters, will reside at the California
building' the entre Summer. Of course
Governor Pardee will have to make fre
quent trips back to California to at
tend to his official duties.
"There will be 15 bedrooms in the
building. We will do a great deal of
entertaining during the Exposition as
all the leading citizens of California
expect to spend several weeks in Port
land. We have plenty of reception
rooms, but we haven't a dancing pavi
lion. However, the balcony overlooking
the main floor of the building is quite
wide and I think we can arrange it so
that the young people can dance there."
Mrs. Wiggins and Mrs. Filcher will
move into the California building next
week. Mr. Wiggins and Mr. Filcher, the
California Commissioners, will also stay
in the building during the Summer. Mr.
Filcher Is in Portland now and Mr.
Wiggins is expected within a few days.
Mrs. Wiggins and Mrs. Filcher wore
hostesses of the California building at
the St. Louis Fair.
Douglas R. Ladd, chief clerk at the
Imperial HoteL bears the reputation
or being one of the most enthusiastic
baseball fans in the Northwest. He is
a stanch supporter of the home team
and never gets discouraged even though
Portland might be at the bottom of the
Mr. Ladd placed a bet on every game
that was played by the Portland team
last Summer, even when it was away
from home. He always bets in favor
of the home team. As Portland did not
make a very good showing last year Mr.
Ladd lost considerable money as gen
erally he had as much as 55 up on each
game. This season he hopes to recupe
rate his lost fortunes, but so far he
has continued to lose.
W. E. Russell, vice-president of the
Washington Pipe & Foundry Company,
of Tacoma, is In Portland for a few
days on his way home from a business
tour in Mexico. Mr. Russell did a phe

where he secured the contract to In

"We do not contemplate raising our
rates during the Exposition months,"
aid George L Thompson at the Perkins
Hotel recently. "Of course it might be
that we would have to employ consid
erable extra help, but even then wo
would not make an increase of more
than 25 per cent.
"One of the influences that tended to
make the Buffalo Exposition a failure
was the exorbitant rates charged by
the hotels. People were compelled to
pay three times as much as they usual
ly did. Of course the visitors who were
robbed knocked the Fair and kept
others from attending.
"It must be admitted that there will
be a few hotels and boarding-houses in
Portland that will greatly Increase
their rates during the Fair it there is
a big rush, but I do not believe the
large hotels wllL You see there have
just recently been opened up several
hotels purposely for the Exposition
"If I had not been forced to part with
my left leg I should be fighting with the
Japanese army In Manchuria," said 1u
meto Kushiblkl, of Buffalo, N. Y last
night at the Portland. Mr. Kushiblkl is
a wiry-looking Japanese In spite of his
gray hair, and he Is resident Japanese
Commissioner at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition, and the owner of the con
cession "Fair Japan," which will be one
of the great attractions at the Exposi
tion. "How did I lose my left leg?" repeated
Mr. Kushiblkl. "No, it was not in battle,
although I belong to the Japanese army
reserve. I was run down by a trolley
car In an Eastern city and my left leg
suffered. But to business. I arrived
five hours ago from St. Louis, and with
out losing any time I secured a guide and
drove to the Exposition grounds. The
location is such an Ideal one that it de
serves all the good things I have heard
about it. Then the trail. It Is placed in
the right spot, on the way to the United
States Government buildings on the isl
and, in a place where all the people must
pass. I have been in this country a
great many years, and have managed
concessions at these expositions: Chicago.
Buffalo, Charleston and St Louis. So I
know what I am talking about. I am the
proprietor of the attractions, 'Fair Ja
pan.' 'Niagara Gorge' and 'Niagara
Falls,' at Columbus, Ohio. Some years
ago I controlled a concession on the roof
of Madison Square Garden, New York
City, and managed a Japanese tea garden
at Atlantic City. N. J.
"Please say that 'Fair Japan' at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition is going to
be a star feature. I have engaged for
it geisha girls, Japanese tumblers and
acrobats, Japanese workmen and artists
skilled In Ivory-caning, toy-making, cab
inet work, etc. I start work tomorrow on
the Japanese exhibit, and will begin work
Tuesday on 'Fair Japan' on the trail.
The whole work on my concession will
be completed within one week before the
Exposition opens. The same can be said
about the Japanese exhibit. Your Ex
position is more compact than the one
at St. Louis, and Is by far the prettier.
The scenery and location are superb, and
I am sure that the Exposition is going
to be a great success. In the East, be
fore I left St. Louis to come here, and
even before that time, L met lots of
people who told me they were coming
here this Summer. Many of them are
coming to'see the magnificent scenic dis
play of the Pacific Northwest, and many
are coming to see the Exposition. They
will be delighted with what they will see.
I am to be a resident in Portland from
now on. I will use American labor in
the construction of my buildings at the
Exposition, but when It comes tp deli
cate carving, etc.. and where I 'wish to
produce a Japanese effect, I will use
Japanese labor."

Lad Who Prevented Jailbreak
Citizens Think That His Heroism in
Cowing Prisoners at Jail Has
Earned Him the Right
to Freedom.
Frank Selee, the 15-year-old boy trusty
who prevented 25 prisoners from escap
ing from the County Jail, has attracted
a great deal of attention because of his
heroic act and It Is said an effort will
be made to have him pardoned. Several
persons called at the County Jail yester
day to -commend the boy, and one citizen
was heard to say that he would appeal
to Governor Chamberlain to see If some
thing could not be done for Selee.
The prisoners are very bitter against
Selee and say he threw them down with
the hopes of being pardoned. Many of
the prisoners have threatened the boy
bodily harm If they ever get hold of him,
but every precaution is being taken that
he is not injured by the desperate men
who harbor the enmity against him.
Deputy Sheriff Downey says the boy
acted on a natural Impulse and that he
had no intention of doing something
heroic so that ho would be pardoned.
Selee will have finished his term In
September, having been sentenced to a
term of ten months for stealing 5263 and
a diamond ring from a guest at the
Hotel Scott where he was working as a
bell boy. Although the money and the
diamond were found upon his person
when searched. Selee always protested
his Innocence. He declares that he found
the money and the jewelry In the hall
way and that he Intended turning them
over to the clerk at the time he was
A great deal of sympathy has been ex
pressed for Selee ever since he was
convicted. . He has friends in the city
who believe that he has been a victim
of unfortunate circumstances and that
he was not a thief. Since he has been
at the County Jail he has been a model
prisoner and Is known as Head Trusty,
to which responsible trust he was pro
moted because of his faithfulness to
duty and his unflinching courage. They
knew that he could be depended upon.
Selee takes care of the corridors and
sees that they are kept In neat condi
tion. He is also sent' around -Portland
on errands. Deputy Sheriff Downey
says he is one of the most faithful and
heroic boys he ever knew.
Fine Display of Gowns and Hats by
Miss Portland.
Miss Portland, dressed in her best, at-,
tended the annual Easter parade yester
day, and she was a dream. In the hat and
gown line one was reminded of fair, pretty
creatures only previously supposed to exist
in poetry. The dress parade reached Its
climax between 2 and 5 P. M., on Wash
ington. Morrison and West Park streets,
and afterward at the City Park.
An old-fashioned poet showed that he
knew a thing or two about Easter and
the dress parade when he wrote:
Her feet bene&th her "petticoat.
Like little mice, peeped In and out.
As If they feared the light
And oh, she dances uch a way, '
No tun upon an Raster day
Is half so fine a slcht!
Felt hats were discarded yesterday, and
in their place were straw hats that had
either been slightly used last season and
were as good as new from the skillful
hands of the milliner, or real new straws
that got their first breath of Easter.
Brown and Green the Colors.
Many of the hats were trimmed with
flower-like bows of ribbon and foliage.
In the matter of gowns, silk creations
were noticed in dainty colorings of green
and brown mostly green. Was it meant
as a compliment to the Irish, or to na
ture's favorite and only color in grasses
and foliage? Miss Portland decided that
It was the fashion to attend church so off
she started, first taking care to choose a
church where she could hear the best ser
mon and the finest choir-singing and,
oh! yes, a church with a sloping floor
where her new hat could be shown to the
best advantage. Dn the way, the .very
birds in he trees grew jealous of the
Easter dash cut by the glrlsfand whistled
their disapproval by uttering shrill notes.
After church, luncheon. And after
luncheon, the Easter parade. Many Eas
ter girls were noticed walking two by
two. with no young man escort near. The
procession, with its browns and greens,
had a daHh of cool, white shirtwaists to
give it finish, and only in "three Instances
were noticed sirls who wore tan shoes.
Flowers worn were lilies, sweet peas and
violets. But the sun was getting unbear
able down-town, and soon trolley-cars
buzzed along' laden with womenklnd and
a few babies en route to the ball game
and City Park.
At the City Park.
The latter location was a decided favor
ite for the Easter parade, and It is esti
mated that between 5000 and 6000 persons
visited the Park during the day. Its rest
ful shade was very comforting. To bask in
the Easter sun and to look at the hats,
nearly all the anmals domesticated In the
park came out from their Winter quarters,
and Johnny Bear was heard to ask his
mother why so many people wore green
grass on their clothes. The older and
wiser animals, particularly the owls,
chuckled with superior wisdom.
Under the stars, the Easter parade was
resumed, but it was then noticed that
Miss Portland was escorted this time by
a young man. Then she went home In the
cool of the evening, and when she went
to sleep Miss Portland dreamed that she
was In a country where Easter hats,
gowns, Easter and calla lilies, and all
sorts of pretty flowers could be plucked
from the trees, and that she owned all
these trees-

It was Summertime yesterday and
the Sunday crowds mostly followed the
call of the out-of-doors. In spite of this
discouraging counter attraction, how
ever, the Columbia players appeared
before considerable audiences of their
faithful friends in "Pink Dominoes,'
the last play that the organization
will ever present In spirit with the
foolishly balmy days the performance
of this frivolous farce was entirely ap
propriate. It's a good warm weather
bill, requiring little exerciBe of the
mental faculties of the observers and
no great labor on the part of perform
ers. It is one of those things weakly
denominated "pleasing." It offers pale
surcease of sorrow In cooling draughts
and at the end of It there Is sufficient
assurance that "a good time was had
by all."
The episode Is of the doubting wives
who attend a mask ball In pink dis
guises in order to discover recreant
iiusbands, the mischievous ladles' maid
who Ingenuously adds to the compli
cations the namby pamby youth and
the aged beaux who "break out" for a
try at revelrjp. These make the thread
with which the play Is bound around
and the criss-crossing of purposes pro
vides the incident It's a diverting en
tertainment and is worth the attend
ing. Each of the principals, the actor
friends of a long, and arduous season
were splendidly received and the un
dertone of regret that this week marks
the end was plainly to be discerned un
derneath each burst of applause. The
players showed their appreciation by
giving a conscientious performance.
Not the best of the season but uni
formly good and altogether a happy
one. The meritorious work of A Neale
In a waiter's part is deserving of par
ticular comment and this applies to a
number of other small parts, which he
has done very well In recent weeks.
"Pink Dominoes" was well selected
as the .finale of" the engagement and
we who have been finely served by the
Columbia company for more than half
a year should make the closing week a
worthy one by lending our attendance
upon it A. A. G.

The orchestra played "Then You'll Re
member Me." You have only one guess.
Of course It was "East Lynne," for did
ever anybody hear of a performance of
.the old weepy English drama In which
the "Bohemian Girl" number did not
sound its plaintive notes Incidentally?
The Empire company played It, and, as
"East Lynnes" go, played It very well.
Too much Is never expected when it is
known that "Madame Vine" Is to die in
the last act when lights are low and the
fiddles sob. It Is an old stager and mem
ory Is lost in forgetfulness When an effort
is made to hark back to the time before
Mrs. Wood's unnatural old tale was not
being recited upon the mimic stage. It
has frequently fallen upon hard lines but,
like that other classic,. "Uncle Tom's
Cabin." It never fails to crowd the thea
ter where It Is being presented.
The Empire was filled to suffocation
with those who had a hankering yester
day to see the ancient play again. It Is
a pioneer of problem plays and after all
the moral It points Is good, much better
than the tale it adorns.
The members of the company, generally,
did themselves credit and the patrons of
the house were much pleased.

"Cherokee Bill" in Trouble.
"Cherokee Bill." the famous Indian
scout, who has been appointed a guard
at the Lewis and Clark Exposition, upon
the recommendation of President Roose
velt, Imbibed too much "firewater" early
Saturday morning, and was arrested bv
Sergeant Taylor near Second and Couch
streets. "Cherokee Bill" had been making
a night of It, and it was reported to the
police that in several places he threatened
to use his revolver, which he always car
ries with him.
When taken to the station he became
very indignant and displayed his official
badge,, as he was appointed Deputy Sheriff
by Sheriff Word, and tackled Jailer Lillie
when they started to put him in the cell.
The two men had quite a scuffle, but
Lillls proved too much for the Indian
