Portland's most important opening displays of authoritative fashions
for 'Fall and Winter of 1906-7 will be on exposition at the Olds, "Wortman
& King store today and tomorrow. Three buildings over 40 distinct
specialty shops are full to overflowing of the newest things for the
new season. The fruits of our army of buyers' endeavors are ripe the
stocks are complete for Autumn, and toft ay will be the first real opportunity of viewing them in their fullness. Today and
tomorrow will be days for shopping as well as for sightseeing. The immense purchases of Fall goods naturally have brought
in their train many chances to obtain new things in dress for less than, in the ordinary course of events, will be possible at
the height of the season. We've planned for today and tomorrow many exceptional and worth-while economies, and have decided unless lots are closed that we will

The Largest and Foremost Garment
Stores West of Chicago
In the charmingly and tastefully arranged second floor salons we shall show, amid beautiful and im
pressive decorative settings what, you'll agree with us in acknowledging to be? after a trip 'round 'mongst
the minor displays at other local shops, the most complete and comprehensive collection of fashionably au
thoritatively modes i women's garments shown on this Coast. The gorgeous style show presents the most
magnificent and exquisite creations in new gowns and wraps, brought from Europe and Eastern American
fashion centers ever exploited by any Western house. The conceptions are exclusive with this house the
showings rival and in many features surpass those of great style stores in the metropolitan cities of the
East. To visit the exhibit today or tomorrow will be, from a dress point of view, like mingling in the best
societj' of two continents. In the gorgeous, tempting, stunning gowns and wraps for dinner, reception, thea
ter, calling and street wear you will see reflected with brilliancy the very essence of Parisian dress elegancy.
The store has indeed achieved a new series of inspiring triumphs in the opening exhibits of refined feminine
apparel. Imported gowns arid their replicas masterpieces of Schroeder and other great American crea
tors from models of the famous Maurice Mayer, Agnes, Beer, Paquin, Bechoff, David & Cie, Perdoux and
other great French designers and modistes. 'Twould take an expert indeed to tell many of the original Par
isian models from their clever American prototypes the comparison is interesting yes, fascinating. The
Autumn's showing again demonstrates the unquestionable leadership of the Olds, Wortman & King store
in the style world as against the ridiculous claims of the horde of "Pretenders" who long to usurp, the
throne, and proves conclusively "who's-who" in local style authority and patronage.
The Foremost Millinery Salons on
the Pacific Coast
But your interest will only be partially centered in the garment salons. Tou H want to see what our
experts have brought out and prepared in handsome, charming millinery. Again, here we call your atten
tion to a fact we have so often demonstrated in the past that this store excels in millinery showings, in size
of stocks, in comprehensive assortments, in exclusive designs, but more particularly and over and above all,
in really authoritative and high-class styles for particular, discriminating femininity who desire correct and
refined mode in millinery. There's no finer, handsomer millinery in the land than ours. Here one sees,
spread out in almost bewildering array, the Autumn season's correct modes in foreign and domestic de
signs. A bewitching convention of French, English and American pattern hats, portraying all that is artist
tic and new in materials, colors and conjurings, and clearly showing the handiwork of the world's most
famous designers and creators, of woman's headgear. Among others will be noted models from the creative
brain of Georgette, of Mons. Lewis, Madame Feurly,, Marescot Sovers, Madame Louison, Suzanne Blum, Leon
tine, and many others celebrated in millinery's "Hall of Fame." But 'tis unlikely your interest won't be
'divided. You're certain to admire the product of the creative genius of the store's millinery artistes quite
as much as the foreign beauties. They've been busy very busy, fashioning replicas of the masterpieces so
cleverly that experts might be fooled. And yet there's a difference a great difference though colors,
shapes and styles are exact duplicates. The difference is in the price you'll pay for the duplicates, but a
fraction of the cost of the originals. "We'll be gratified to greet you at the openings.

GERMANS WANT PROTECTION
Murder of Bush Causes Vigorous
Protest by Ambassador. .
ST. PETERSBURG. Sept. 17. The in
security of life and property In the Bal
tic Provinces, which culminated last Sat
urday In the murder of Heir Bush, a
rich German manufacturer and the lead
er of the German colony at Riga, has
led the German Embassy here again to
make energetic representations to the
Foreign Office concerning the adoption of
measures for the protection of German
subjeots. Bush was killed by agents of
the revolutionary organization engaged In
levying tribute. Dr. von Mlquel, first sec
retary of the German Embassy, called to
day at the foreign office and presented the
report of the German Consul at Riga re
garding the killing of Bush, who was
struck down in his own factory. He
called attention to the length of time
the reign of terror ha3 lasted.
Although the armed revolt was crushed
and the country reconquered by the
forces under General OrlofI last Winter,
robberies and murders have continued un
checked for over a year and a half

Coming From Ijima.
"WASHINGTON. Sept. 17. Dispatches
were received today announcing the de
parture of the cruiser Charleston from
Callao, Peru, last night for Panama, and
the arrival at Colon yesterday of the
cruiser Columbia, from Guantanamo. Sec
retary Root and family are aboard the
Charleston after a cruise around South
America. If . present plans are not
changed, they will leave the Charleston
at Panama and cross the Isthmus to
Colon, where they will embark for home
on .the -Columbia.
It had been intimated that Mr. Root
might conclude to continue his cruise on
the Charleston to San Francisco and re
turn to Washington overland, but. In
view of the critical situation in Cuba, it
Is almost certain that he will go to
Havana to assist Secretary Taft and As
sistant Secretary Bacon in re-establishing
the Cuban Republic on a stable and
permanent basis, unless that consumma
tion has been reached before the possible
arrival of the Secretary of State.
In his letter to Minister Quesada an
nouncing the appointment of Mr. Taft
and Sir. Bacon to go to Cuba, the Presi
dent said he hoped that Mr. Root could
have stopped In Havana on his return
from South America In time to have
been associated with the American mis
sion to the island, but that the seeming
Imminence of the crisis forbade any delay
in his action. It Is therefore probable
that. If the matter is not settled mean
time Mr. Root will Join his colleagues in
Havana and add the weight of his In
fluence to the paclflo settlement of the
existing troubles. v

aponse to inquiries regarding: the signifi

at Stanford last Saturday, that an inter
national academy might be founded to
have authority In matters of language
changes. While discussing his Stanford
address, he said:
My petition Is determined from the point
of view of the science of language In its re

of the highest Importance to moat sacrM
civilized Interests that no changes be made
such as have been proposed without most care

should have oversight of reforms In the lan

Its Discovery Accentuated - Heart
Trouble and Precipitated Uia
Death He Was Accused of
VIENNA, Sept. 17. According to infor
mation received by the Neues Wiener
Tageblatt from "a distinguished Russian
authority," General Trepoff at the coun
cil at Peterhof August 15 remarked:
"We have made a fearful mistake in
not having formed a Cabinet representa
tive of society."
Emperor Nicholas, Indignant at the
observation, avoided General Trepoff
henceforth. Later General Trepoff pre
sented to the Emperor a project he had
elaborated respecting the sale . of the
crown land, but the Emperor coldly
ordered him to hand it to Grand Duke
Nicholas, his bitterest enemy. The Grand
Duke, after reading the project, re
"It la extraordinary that you have now
become a Liberal after the attempt to
poison you. Tou are a Liberal from fear
of revolution, not from conviction."
General Trepoff took this statement to
heart, coming from those to whom he had
devoted his entire life, and passed his
last days in the closest retirement, suf
fering intensely from depression.
Early on the morning of September 13
General Trepoff found on his writing
table a document which he knew, as he
unfolded It, was a death sentence from
the revolutionary committee. Greatly
