tain alcohol and dangerous drugs, lead
ing to conclusion that it is not safe to take

the other always condemned the fermen
ted. The good wine h; the pure Juice of

WIRING BILL ATTACKED
SUIT IS FIJLED TO KEEP IT OFF
Postal Telegraph Company Alleges
Proposed Law Would Be Con
trary to Franchise.
The fourth suit to restrain City Auditor
Barbur fro-n placing an initiative petition
on the ballot has been filed in the Circuit
Court. This time an effort Is being made
to quash the proposed ordinance regulat
ing the stringing of overhead wires,
which Is being backed by linemen of the
city. I.. A. McNary and B. A. Lundberg
filed the suit late yesterday afternoon.
While the nominal plaintiff is the Postal
Telegraph Company, the Portland Rail
way, Light & Power Company is said
to be back of the suit, as the latter
company would also be aiffected by the
ordinance, should it go into effect.
The Postal Telegraph Company alleges
that it is the successor - of the Postal
Telegraph & Cable Company, to which
the city granted a franchise to string
wires and operate a telephone and tele
graph system. The Postal company will
be put to great inconvenience, expense,
and property loss by the new ordinance,
it is asserted. -
The complaint also raises the question
whether the word "filing" in the law re
quiring petitions to be filed 60 days be
fore election, means the time when the
petition is presented to the City Auditor,
or the time when be files the petition
after checking it up. As the petition was
presented April 7. and filed by the Auditor
ten days later, this question becomes ma
torial in determining whether or not the
initiative petition shall go on the ballot.
Judge Bronaugh Issued an order yester
day afternoon that the City Auditor ap
pear In court this morning at 9:30 o'clock
to show cause why he should not appear
this afternoon to argue the law points

Child Pianist Tendered
Concert at Hetlla; to Ralne Fund
to Send Beatrice Evelyn Wilson
Abroad la Success.
QUITE an amount of pardonable pride
was manifested In the appearance
of Beatrice Evelyn Wilson, Portland's
child pianist, at the Heilig Theater last
night, on the occasion of a concert to
raise funds thaough which Miss Be
atrice -will receive an education in the
larger world of music, preferably at Ber
lin, Germany, for which city she leaves
next August. At this concert Miss
Beatrice had the kind assistance of Mrs.
Rose Bloch Bauer, soprano: Mrs. Rose
Coursen Reed, contralto: Dom J. Zan,
baritone: Waldemar Llnd, violinist, and
Kdgar K. Coursen. piano accompanist,
the affair being under the auspices of
the Benevolent and Protective Order of
Elks. Portland Lodge, No. 142. It was
a pleasant success, and the attendance
Miss Beatrice selected piano numbers
which showed her remarkable talent as a
child pianist, and she reveled in niceties
of delicate light and shade. This favor
ite mood of hers was reflected in the "Les
Deux Alonettes." by Leschetizsky. with
which she began her programme, and she
continued this thought in the fine senti
ment with which she invested her Grieg
and Chopin offerings. Naturally, the lit
tle girl reserved her strength for the big
"Uhapsodie Hongroise," by Liszt. the
closing number of the, concert. This was
played with a dash and brilliancy sur
prising in one so. young as Rilss Beatrice
is, only 11 years old. She was very cor
dially received and. taken altogether,
made a very favorable impression, on n
scale commensurate with the expecta
tions formed of her in advance. She has
a decided future as a pianist. ::nd all her
many friends hope that some day her
fame in music will be National, and
American at that. One of her encores
was a selection from Scotsan-Clarke.
Mrs. Bauer sang three favor!te songs,
one by Sans-Soucl. and the others by
Grieg and Mrs. Beach, selections which
were Interpreted with fine vocal ism. Mrs.
Reed's selections were from Ponchinelll,
Plerne, and Chadwick. and each received
an artistic setting. Mr. Zan's and Mr.
Lind's numbers also found much favor.
The duet jtt about the end ol the pro
gramme. "Birds That Sang in May,"
written by Strelevkl. and sung excellently
by Mrs. Bauer and Mrs. Reed, made the
vocal hit of the occasion, and won an in
sistent recall. Mr. Coursen was at all
time's a good accompanist.
