To Decide Question Whether

of Great Peak.

SEATTLE. Wh.. Oct. 1. Steps are
being taken In this city to organize a
party of amateur mountaineers to cllmD
Mount McKinley. Alaska, the tallest peak
in North Anvrlra. While there are no
professional guides in the Pacific North
west, hundr.-ds of men and women have
climbed the volcanoes of the Northwest,
including Mount Katnler, the second loft
iest summit in the I'nited States, the
enormous ice fields of which give oppoi
tunlty for test of nerve. Among the
mountaineers there is a disposition not to
express an opinion on the disputed as
cent by Dr. Took, there being- a friendly
feeling toward him. Asahel Curtis, re
puted to be the most expert climber In
the Northwest, raid today:
"The ascent of Mount McKinley ia quite
feasible, if undertaken by a properly
equippd expedition. There must be at
least five men. all experienced. The route
of Dr. Cook is best by steamer to Tyonek,
on Cook Inlet, then up the Susitna River
' In a power boat.. The Jce field on Moun

summit of Mount Rainier from the camp
above timber-line is marie In a day; on

much lifeline work on Mount McKinley.

An early siart is necessary to take ad
I vantage of the hard- snow of Spring and
avoid the ioe of Summer. No inexpe

; in the accent.
"Swiss guides have failed on the Pa

Servant Tells of His Experiences on
' Polar Hunt.
NEW YORK. Oct. 18. The first lec
ture given by Matthew A. Henson. who
accompanied Commander R. E. Peary
on his recent polar expedition, was
marred by the fact that Commander
Peary, at the last moment, had ordered
him not to use photographs -which had
been taken on the trip. Henson took
102 pictures . himself and. on his ar
rival here. Kave them to the director
of the American Museum of Natural
History, who transformed them into
lantern slides. At the last moment Mr.
Peary Instructed the museum director
not to turn the slides oven to Henson
until he (Peary) had examined them.
The director followed Peary's order.
There were many Cook sympathizers
in the audience and the negro lecturer
was questioned closely on many points.
Henson declared frequently throughout
his lecture that Cook could not have
reached the North Pole, and it is said
That he will repeat these statements In
the lectures which he will give in
other cities throughout the country.

TOLEDO. O.. Oct. 18. "I am pleased
to hear of it." said Dr. Frederick A.
. Cook, when Informed of the plans for an
expedition from Seattle for the ascension

i "If the expedition follows my route and

i well avoid finding my records. That
( would have an important bearing upon
j the controversy surely. I think 1 know
! Mr. Curtis, who is quoted concerning the
; proposed expedition.
I "I believe, however, that the attempt
is intended to be made next Summer. Jt
Is too .late for this year. The summit
of the mountain could not be reached
other than in a dirigible balloon. The
Suchitna River would be froxen up."

CHICAGO, Oct. 18. Fifteen thousand
men and women praying for Chicago's
deliverance from vice, invaded the. ten
derloin district tonight, led by "Gypsy"
Smith, evangelist, who is conducting a
revival here. A great chorus, singing
sacred 'songs drowned out the coarse
music o the cafes and saloons and the
lights were dimmed by the flare of the
brilliant illumination which blazed the
way of the Christian army.
Along the route thousands of curious
spectators thronged the sidewalks. It
was an orderly crowd, however, and the
churchmen and women were unmolested.
Before the parade thousands of persons
filled the Seventh Regiment Armory and
many thousands listened to exhorters in
the street. '
The procession, led by a detachment
of police, started on its journey about 10
o'clock. The route was well-guarded by
police and when " the destination of the
crusaders was reached, hundreds of po
licemen were present to see that the
orders against any ribald demonstration
were enforced.
As the marchers, singing. "I Am Pray
ing for You," "Onward. Christian Sol
diers." "Rescue the Perishing." and a
score of other sacred songs, filed through
the forbidden streets, the throng of curi
ous watotted silently. For more than an
hour the parade continued and then In
two large auditoriums, one a theater and
the other a church, big crowds listened
to the earnest appeal from "Gypsy"
Smith and other preachers.
ilany Chicago people had protested
against the Invasion, insisting it would
do no good. -The men and women behind
the ' movement declared, however, that
their mission would arouse Chicago to
the necessity of cleaning Mp its underworld.

time Mr. Bowes was reputed to be
worth a million and was extensively
engaged In real estate.
A few years ago he moved to Tacoma

The young millionaire made good,

Mrs. Daniel Frohman Still Longs for
Simple Life.
RENO, Nev., Oct. 18. Mrs. Daniel
Frohman. more familiarly known by
her stage name of Margaret Illlngton,
today filed suit for divorce in the Dis

her husband has for the last two years
failed to contribute to her support.
Other than the bare statement that
the plaintiff has resided in Reno for
more than six months; that there were
no children and no community prop

No alimony is asked for.
For nearly a year Mrs. Frohman has
resided in this city, coming here with

tested. What Mrs. Frohman's plans are in case
she secures her decree are not known, al
though some time ago she stated that she
was tired of the stage and wished to lead
a simple life in the future.
The Frohmans were married In New

Opening: of the new Portland Theater,
last night, was a matter of moment to
theatergoers for one reason In particular
it was made plain that a really notable
class of productions Is to be given to
Portland by the Shuberts.
"The Great John Ganton," with George
Fawcett In the title role, was the premier
attraction and it was worthily selected.
It proved a pleasant surprise, surpassing
the expectations of those who had been
prepared for something unusual. A re
markable story is given an appreciable in
terpretation by a capable company. It
has to do with important phases of Ameri
can commercial and social life. , It bristles
with tense situations, stirring lines, strik
ing situations, and "heart interest." to
employ a sorely overworked phrase.
And when, after playing with the feel
ings of his audience as no one has done
perhaps since Warfleld was last - here,
George Fawcett admitted In response to
his eighth curtain call that It was his
first appearance in Portland,, those who
were there felt they had been cheated
of something in that fact. He has long
been rated by many as the leading char
acter actor of the American stage. That
rating is acceptable to Portland.
Fawcett, as the great John Ganton, Is
remarkably cast. He gives to the role
of the big hard-headed industrial giant
an Interpretation that must be classed as
a masterpiece of its kind. He gives life
and substance to a type of American
that very few actors might depict ade
quately. Fawcett revealed an unlimited
resource, an infinite capacity for detail,
a thorough mastery of the art of making
his audience feel.
The story itself has to do with John
Ganton. his co!Wge-bred son, that youth's
supposedly undesirable fiancee, and the
differences that naturally arise between
father and son only to disappear when
the old man becomes disillusioned. Side
lights are thrown on Chicago society and
certain important phases of the Chi
cago business world.
The elder Ganton has built up a big
corporation by his hard-headed methods.
The business has its tentacles In every
part of the world and thrives under con
ditions that wouldn't be confessed In
open court. Ganton, following the meth
ods "he says he must follow or go
down in the struggle for survival, has
wrecked his bueiness antagonist, who
shoots himself, leaving behind a daughter.
The daughter, of course, becomes en
gaged to the younger Ganton; the head
of the household brands her as an adven
turess and awakens to find himself very
much mistaken. The subduing of Gan
ton's relentless energy by inevitable
breakdown and the attendant falling
away of the callouses that have grown
about his nature, are subtly wrought Into
a striking and stirring- climax.

Sabin, Thomas Dixon, Ed Eaton, B.
Brink. M. A. Alexander, Charles Ferris
and William Keyes, prominent stockmen
of Big Horn County, were placed on trial
today at Basin, charged with the murder
of Joe Alemanda and Joe Emge. sheep
owners, and Joe Lazier, herder. These
men were slain in the Spring Creek raid
on the flight of April 2. when hundreds
of sheep were killed and maimed and the
bodies of the men burned in the camp
wagon. '
The arrest of the men came as the re
sult of an investigation started by the
Wyoming Woolgrowers' Association.
The grand Jury brought true bills and all
the accused men were arrested. An at-
tempt to cauee the escape of some of
the men after they had been released on
bail was frustrated by rearrest.
An International aspect has been given
the case through the activity of the
French government, inasmuch as Laxier,
one of the victims, was a French citizen.

pleted for several days.
