lortland Is to have a stock cx
'toangc which will open up In the
Brooke-Glesy building. Second and
Stark streets, about April 15. H. C
Kollcr. of Los Angeles, will arrive In
Portland this week to make arrangc
monts for the organization of. the
Portland Stock Exchange He has had a
long and varied experience with stock
exchanges and will be manager of the
onjs to be established In Portland. He
will be accompanied by Mr. Potter,
formerly of the Chicago Board of
Louis J. Wilde, a banker and capi
talist of San Diego, Cal., who has been
In Portland for some time. Is largely
responsible for the establishment of
a stock exchange In this city. He
wrote to parties In Los Angeles and
acquainted them with the conditions,
which they thought warranted an en
terprise of this kind. Other than a
member Mr. Wilde will have nothing
to do with tho exchange.
Quarters In the Brooke-Glesy build
ing have been leased. They comprise a
large court and several offices. The
stock exchange which Is to be started
up in Portland will be similar to those
In San Francisco and Los Angeles. The
membership will be limited to 100 and
seats in the exchange -will be sold at
5100. It is stated on reliable authority
that Seattle made an attempt to secure
the stock exchange in the place of
Portland and offered to secure 100
mumbcrs at $1000 .each. But tho men
who are backing Iho enterprise favored
Portland and would not consent to go
Will Not Deal in Margins.
The exchange will not deal In margins
but In stocks, bonds, real estate, mort
gages, legitimate securities, etc All
bonds, stocks and securities which come
from .Portland and vicinity will be listed
und the quotations called dally. All gales
and tho. bid and asked prices will be re
"Tho Portland Stock Exchange will be
the meeting place of the buyer and the
seller," said Mr. Wilde yesterday after
noon. "If an Individual has stock or
bonds or securities to pell he has a place
to go to offer them. The sales will be
made strictly on their merits, and the
buyers will have an opportunity to ascer
tain Just what they are obtaining.
"In my opinion, the stock exchange will
be of Immense benefit to Portland. It
will encourage legitimate enterprises,
which want to place part of their bonds
In Portland, to locate here. Brokers, real
estate men. .bankers and other dealers in
securities will belong to IL
T,os Angeles Exchange Success.
"The well-conducted exchanges of San
Francisco and Los Angeles have proved
to be a great huccoss. Two years ago
the Los Angeles Stock Exchange was re
organized and seats sold nt 5100. Only
recently a seat In the Los Angeles Ex
change was sold for S2D0. The day solos
In San Francisco and Ijoh Angeles at
times amount to JSOO.000 or more."

NUBQIUUH TO CLOSE
Syndicate Plans to Lease or
Build Another Theater.
RUMORS ARE CONFIRMED
President Hcilig, of Xortliuot As
sociation, Talks nl Taconia.
Property Xoiv Too Vn limbic
for a Playhouse.
It Is altogether probable that before
many months have passed the Marquam
Grand Theater will be closed forever as a
playhouse, and that the theatrical syndi
cate's attractions visiting Portland there
after will appear at some other place.
Just what arrangements will be made has
not yet been determined. The Bclasco
Theater may be reopened for the large
traveling companies, or a new theater,
larger and more modern than any of the
present playhouses, may be erected.
Rumors that some changes were con
templated in the local theatrical world
had been in circulation in Portland for
several days. Last night they were con
firmed and enlarged upon by Calvin Hel
lig. president of the Northwest Theatrical
Association, in a telephone message to
The Oregonlan from Tacoma. Mr. Heilig
stated that negotiations were in progress
whereby a lease may be obtained from
Belasco & Mayer, owners of the Bclasco,
and that if theso negotiations are con
summated the attractions which are now
appearing at the Marquam will be trans
ferred to tho uptown theater. If this
plan Is not adopted, a new playhouse will
be erected for the syndicate In Portland.
Mr. Helllg is now negotiating with the
owners of tho Downing property, at the
northeast corner of Park and Alder
streets, for the erection of such a build
ing. At all events it Is likely that the
curtain will be rung down on the Mar
quam Grand, for many years Portland's
leading playhouse, in the near future.
Properly Now Too Valuable.
The reason for the probable closing of
the Marquam is that the building is now
becoming too valuable for theatrical pur
poses, a" a consequence of which Its own
ers, the Title Guarantee &. Trust Com
pany, has for some time been considering'
the advisability of remodeling the entire
block for other purposes. It was an
nounced some time ago that no changes
would be made until the title to the
building, which 'has been in litigation,
should be confirmed finally by the Su
The matter has been forced, how
ever, by . the action of the Executive
Board, which recently ordered that ex
tensive alterations be .made In the
theater to bring it up to the require
ments of tin fire ordinance. These al
terations would cost approximately
120.000 and under the circumstance
the owners have expressed themselves
as unwilling to proceed. On the other
hand, the theatrical association, know
ing that it may soon be forced nut of
the Marquam. la unwilling to moel the
There are other consideration
which, it Ik stated, are factors in
bringing about the change. Tho own
ers of the Marquam Grand will not per
mit attractions to ."how there on Sun
day. This eliminates one of the bent
show days of the week, from a box
office standpoint. If the Relasco Is
leased, or If a new theater is erected,
it will be possible for the syndicate at
tract Ions to appear In Portland on
Besides this, it is probable that as
large u room as the Marquam can be
secured In a less central locution at a
reduced expense. Tho Bolnsco, a
smaller theater, could be secured for
vory much less. If. a new thoatcr is
built, the cost would be greater, but a
greater seating capacity would be pro
vided. If the Marquam Is converted Into a
business block, alterations doubtless
will be made that will involve a largo
expenditure of money. The Marquum
property Includes a large Alder-street
frontage In addition to tho site of tho
present structure. This would be
utilized for an eight-story building,
corresponding to and adjoining tha

facturing business in Oregon constantly
since 1S55. when he established a mill In
Washington County. At the time-of his
death he was president of the Jones
Lumber Company, of Portland.
Mr. Jones was one of -that rapidly di
minishing number of pioneers who made
the trip across the plains with ox. teams.
He was bom in Carthage, Xew York, in
1S32. When 13 years of age he went with
his parents to Iowa, where be remained
two years before leaving for Dane Coun
ty, Wisconsin. After a residence of four
years In the Badger State, he began tho!
Journey to Oregon, arriving here In the
Fall of 1S32.
Three years were spent by Mr. Jones
upon a farm near the present site of
Clatskanie, which he left to operate a
sawmill at Cedar Mills, seven miles from
Portland. In 1S62 he made a trip to his
old home In Xew York, where he married
Jane Catherine Osborne. The trip both
ways was made by the Panama route.
In 1571 Mr. Jones erected a steam, saw
mill on the Macadam road. This mill
burned soon afterward, as did also a
second one which he established. Tn 1SD1,
with his brother, he organized the firm
of E. K. Jones & Co., which was incor
porated In 1901. with J. H. Jones as presi
dent. Mr. Jones was always held in high
esteem among his business associates and
the public, and had a wide acquaintance,
due to his long residence In Oregon. He

GAMBLING CASE IS CLOSED
Judge TYazer Declines to Hear Ar
gument Against Mihvaukic Men.
Judge Frazer yesterday refused to re
open the gambling case against Peter St.
Marie. Martin Ready, Isaac Gratton, Tim
DeBoest and others connected with the
Country Club at Mllwaukie. They were
arrested three months ago in a raid made
by members of the Portland police force
for conducting faro and other games.
Judge Frazer after a hearing decided that
as the constitution' of the State of Ore
gon provides for the trial of a person in
the county where the crime Is commit
ted, the Multnomah Circuit Court had no
Jurisdiction, because the Mllwaukie Club
is in Clackamas County. Henry E- Mc
Ginn, as'speclal counsel for the city, yes
terday requested Judge Frazer to reopen
the case. Mr. McGinn desired to argue
the case under the section of the city
charter which provides that the City of
Portland has autnorlty to suppress gam
bling In the city limits and for a distance
four miles outside of the city limits. Dan
J. Malarkey, attorney for the defendants,
opposed the motion, and said the case
had previously been fully argued and de
termined. Judge Frazer sustained the po
sition taken by Mr. Malarkey.

Harry C. M?nomy, tried and convicted

Twenty-first and Glisan streets, Tuesday

The police detectives. Vaughn and Hell,
yer. who have been assigned to tho case
by Captain Bruin, have made no report
of their investigation, and the captain
admits that there Is "nothing doing' on
the case as far as he knows". The detect
ives, however, have not made a capture,
and other than the burglar's hat. which is
still at pollco headquarters, there is no
clew to the perpetrator. Several person?
who it was thought might have been Im
plicated were questioned yesterday,
among them Fred Hoffman and two boys
named Voss. The report that the namo
of Hoffman was found in the sweatband
of the hat lost by the robber Is unfound
ed. The hat Is a plain black felt, contain
ing nothing besides the size which would
lead to Identification of the robber. Hoff

only 15 years of age. and In no way an
