PISSES BAD CHECK
F. E. Powers Commits Felony
to Get Small Sum.
ARRESTED, HE CONFESSES
Buys SI OS Worth of Furniture in
Ten Minutes, Tenders Check
for $ 1 1 9 Caught in Less
Than an Hour.
F. E: Powers passed a forged check
on the firm of Sugarman Bros., 233-235
Front street, at 7 o'clock last evening,
and he was locked up In a City Jail cell
with a felony charge against him and
"with a full confession in the hands of
the police at 8 o'clock. It was one of
the quickest pieces or work ever accom
p'.'.shed by the local officials. Detective
Spreoant Baty and Acting Detective Kay
madf the arrest.
Powers, a fine appearing man of SO
years, stubbornly held out when taken
to police headquarters, saying he got the
chock in Drain, Or., but after being cross
examined by Chief Gritzmacher and De
tective Sergeant Baty, he broke down
and confessed the whole thing.
"1 was up against It and thought I
jvnuld write the check and get a little
money.'' said Powers. "My life is ruined
now. When a man gets drunk he will
do any fool thing that comes into his
head I have been drunk for several days
and that is why I have come to this
trouble. It will kill my folks when they
hear of it."
, As Powers was led away to his cell
by Jailer Endicott he bowed his head
and cried It was evident from his ap
pearance that he had been on a prolonged
debauch, as he himself claimed. He was
on the vei?e of collapse. That he was
hard pressed for money was evident from
the fact that he accepted $3 in cash from
Sugarman Bros, after passing. tha check
for $119, having purchased furniture that
Powers called at the store shortly be
fore " o'clock, saying he wished to pur
chase some furniture. It required but
10 minutes for him to select a bill of
$103, remarkably quick time. the prop
rietors said, and they suspected that the
check he presented in payment was
worthless. One of the men offered to,
go across the street and secure money
with which to pay the balance on the
check, but Powers would not permit it,
he evidently thinking they intended noti
fying the police. He took $3 and hurried
away. The police were then called in
ajid soon picked Powers up on a description.
IS BACKED BY MUSICIANS
Their Union Will Support Xew Con
cert Hall Ordinance.
It has come to light that the Musicians'
Union is behind the ordinance which has
been submitted to the Council providing
for the resumption of concerts and theat
ricals in the saloons of Portland. The'
ordinance was introduced by Councilman
Belding. at the request of the union, but
it is said that many of the saloonmen of
the city, especially the proprietors of the
large resorts of the North End. will lend
their influence to secure the passage of
Since music was abolished in the big
concert-halls, many musicians have been
out of employment and are Just as much
interested as the proprietors in getting
the "old days" back. They expect to
work for the ordinance and will appear
to support It when it is taken up at the
next meeting of the liquor license com
mittee. "I do not see why this measure should
not pass," said Councilman Belding yes
terday. The ordinance provides that
there shall be no 'box-rustling' and elim
inates other objectionable features. I can
see no harm In music or theatricals in
the saloons so long as they are under
police supervision. .As a matter of fact,
the present ordinance against music
where liquors are sold is not enforced.
If it should be. the concerts now given
in the fashionable grills would have to
cease. If they are going to allow concerts
in one class of places where drinks are
served, it seems only right that they
should be allowed in alL".

RITBISS TOAST THE KING
HOLD BAXQTJET IN HONOR OF
Patriotic Songs of England and
America Sung Ex-Mayor Wil
liams Makes Patriotic Address.
Nearly 200 Britons gathered around the
banquet board at Kruse's Grill last night
and celebrated the 63th anniversary of
the birth of King Edward VII. The pa
triotism and loyalty to the throne which
flows in the veins of every true English
man found expression in vigorous and vir
ile enthusiasm. "God Save the King"
was sung In that hearty fashion so much
praised, and was followed in fine style
by the "Star-Spangled Banner." While
they were good Britons last night, not
for a minute did the merrymakers forget
that they were also good Americans.
The English have the reputation of
being rather stolid in their demeanor and
hard to arouse. But the Jolly fellows
present at the banquet last night were
not of that type. They put their whole
hearts and souls into song in the rendi
tion of the British and American pa
triotic airs; they gave loud expression to
their enthusiasm when the speakers
talked of the kinship of the two great
English-speaking races, and laughed as
quickly and as heartily as native Amer
icans at the witty remarks that were
Ex-Mayor George H. TVilliams, whcjjjie
Hvered one of the principal addresses ex
pressed the belief that the time is com
ing when England and the United States
will have to stand shoulder to shoulder
in. their battle for world supremacy. He
spoke of the struggle which he believes
will eventually come between the Orient
and the Occident, and when this comes
to pass he said he thought England and
America would be found fighting to
gether. "The time will come." he said, "when
there will be tremendous struggle be
tween the Oriental and the Western na
tions for the mastery of the Pacific and
its commerce. Great Britain and the
Unite 1 States must and will stand to
gether. They will dominate and control
the w orld's commerce.
"Hot pleasant it is that we of two
great countrfes can meet together to cele
bratf the birthday of our American Presi
dent or of your British King. King Ed
ward and President Roosevelt are alike
in some respects. Both favor peace, and
believe in giving everybody a square
R. W. Blackwood acted as chairman
last night. Jamee Laidlaw. local British
Consul, spoke on "The President." The
other addresses were: "Rose City." Mayor
Lane: "The Briton and the Law." Thomas
G. Greene; "As a Canadian." Dr. W. T.
Williamson. Mr. Blackwood, the chair
man, and A. H. Birrell also spoke briefly.
Overcoats and the Genuine Priestley
Craenette Raincoats $15.
People wno are not acquainted with our
methods of manufacturing the Browns
ville and Salem Woolen Mills' goods and
selling them direct from mill to consumer,
cannot realize how great a coat we have
made for $13. It would hardly seem pos
sible that we could get up a handsome
tailored coat, made from pure wool, in
the most stylish Oxford patterns, line It
witn the best Venetian body lining, use
the best quality of silk in the sleeve lin
ing, and sell it for only $15.
But here are the coats; there is more
goodness and good looks in this garment
than you could imagine some stores get
$.'5 for coats not so good.
This season we made up SOO of these
buckskin overcoats, and the way they are
selling we win not have a single coat left
on January 1. If not yet provided, 'twill
pay to take advantage of this sale.

NOVEL PROGRAMME GIVEN
Professor I. JT. Glen Entertains
Members of the Women's Club.
The programme given at the Women's
Club yesterday afternoon was both un
usual and interesting, being out of the
ordinary in many features. It consisted
of a lecture-recital by Professor Irving
N. Glen, of the University of Oregon,
who gave a presentation of Shakespeare's
"Othello" in comparison with Verdi's fa
mous opera, "Otello." He gave musical
illustrations from the opera and the most
dramatic passages from the play. Pro
fessor Glen jg the possessor of many
talents and yesterday he appeared as
lecturer, reader, actor and singer.
By way of illustration he sang the
"Credo" of Iago, which is taken from
the scene where Iago poisons Othello's
mind, and also sang one of Desdemona's
scenes. The other illustrations were given
by Mrs. May Dearborne Schwab, who
sang the WillowSong and the Ave Ma
ria. The. latter number was particularly
Professor Glen has long been known
as one of Oregon's foremost singers, and
in the lecture-recital fieia he finds full
scope for his talents. A pleasing per
sonality, a melodious voice and marked
dramatic ability especially fit him for
this new work.
Reports from the delegates to the State
Federation were heard and other routine
business attended to durinc the busine.e
session of the club. Mrs. W. Wynn John
ton, the president, was in the chair.
