The employers rejected all the demands of the men. Today every 'union musician employed by the managers concerned will receive two weeks' no tice that his services are no longer re quired. A number of employers of musicians have formed what is known as the Portland Protective Association. Some of the leading members said yesterday that the association tak.es in practically every theater, motion-picture house, grill and cafe in the downtown district which employs an orchestra, as well as dancing academies. Milton Seamon. manager of the Baker Theater is president and I. Lesser Cohen, secretary of the Portland Amusement Company,- is secretary of the association. The directors are: O. V. Bergner, manager of the Columbia Theater; Calvin Heilig. of the Heilig Theater: A. T. Lundborg. manager of the Benson Hotel, and Nick Pierong, manager of the Empress fheater. Employers Give Out Terms. In a letter sent yesterday to the Mu sicians' Union, the employers rejected the demands made, and contend for two things. The first is the right of the employers to determine how many mu sicians they shall employ. The second point is that the employers demand, on principle, to be consulted before any demands which affect their business are served on them. "We are unable to accept that clause of your proposed scale fixing the mini mum number of musicians which must be employed, nor the penalizing scale you seek to enforce, should we decide to employ a less number of men than you ask for. "We feel that it is right and proper. In all matters of mutual interest a principle we have earnestly tried to -impress on your organization that be fore taking action affecting our busi ness you should be willing to meet us in consultation, whereat a spirit of mutual fairness might be the means of harmonizing any possible differ ences." The letter was signed by a commit tee consisting of J. A. Johnson. A. T. Lundborg and M. G. Winstock. Letter Not Delivered Sunday. This letter had not reached George E. Jeff cry, president of the local mu sician's union, last night. When in formed of its contents and that the association members would serve two weeks' notice upon their musicians to day. Mr. Jeffery declined to comment on the matter pending receipt of the letter. "I think it will be better not to say anything on behalf of the union at this time," he said. "When any statements from the other side reach us, either through the mail or through the medium of the press, we will be glad immediately to answer them. We have had nothing from the managers since submitting the classification, which is to take effect September 1 or there abouts." The last sentence refers to the sliding scale In the demand to the employers. ' Added Expense Not Warranted. However, while Mr. Jeffery declined to state the case for the musicians, a statement of the position taken by the union was obtained from other sources. Speaking for the employers. Secretary I. Lesser Cohen said that the firm stand taken by his organization was one not only of principle, but was based on sound business reasons; that the de mand of the union at this time was particularly unfortunate because the theatrical business had not been good enough to warrant any additional ex pense. That Portland theatrical men, had always employed union men in every line. There had always been the kind liest feeling between employers and men. That the employers believed the best men are union men. That the musicians employed in thea ter orchestras were well paid and worked comparatively short hours, but that the employers believe they fully earned their pay and did not begrudge them a cent. That there had never been any op position to the union and the employers did not feel hostile towards the union, nor object to their men belonging to the union. ' Pay Not Reduced. But Mr. Cohen said the employers felt that they could not comply with a demand - on the part of the-union that will regulate their business. Es pecially, he pointed out, their refusal to comply did not reduce any musician's pay nor increase his working hours. The union contention that reduction of orchestras Increased the work of the remaining men they dismissed as absurd, as they did the contention that a smaller instrumentation in the or chestras would lower the musical standard and injure musicians' reputa tions. "Finally," said Mr. Cohen, "when the musicians sent in a peremptory de mand, the employers felt that in view of their previous smooth relations with the union, they had received an unfair slap. On this point they base the con tention that they must be consulted in all matters affecting the management of their business." Resolved into its simplest form, the employers' ease is outlined by their spokesman as follows: Musicians in theaters are part of the attraction. The managers alone must determine how many or few men they shall employ. The working hours and the pay of other musicians will not be disturbed. If. through reduction of orchestras! the musical standard is lowered, it will be the house and not the individ ual musician's reputation which will Buffer. Some Musicians Satisfied. Some of the theatrical managers say their musicians were not in favor of the arbitrary demands served by the union, and left the union meetings without voting on the issue, being con tented with their present conditions. The employers say they take -this to mean that some unannounced influence carried the issue through at the union meetings. The musicians dispute the statements and contentions of the employers. Grills, cafes and dancing academies are not affected by the new union scale, they say, and therefore are not interested.- fjr S-f , 1 $Y?fw swa.s t Tkww'w' f; Vii-' - ' ' Js5L , ft v ff uvV ; Lt ft r- km v ypi i r flr-ww. fa i a am un M i m mm i i n i u 1 1 mymmmt v ... m m i w-wi lift i ;v ai m i atiex . . i.atufik y.-uteA.: I- S It Ai' St-. 4u ."?aJi - I t -Jff ?)

EACH IS PRIZEWINNER Nearly All States and Many Sections of Canada Are Represented In Bevy That Won Trip to San Francisco Expositfon. One hundred of the most beautiful girls in the United States are coming to Portland all in a bunch. They will be here July 24. for a whole day, and a special train will bring them into town. The girls were chosen In a photo erraphic contest conducted by some of the Eastern and Western Newspapers, and the selections were made from photographs. The winners, as an emolument for being adjudged beauti ful, are to receive free trips to the San Francisco Exposition, and E. S. Secord, of 43 Burton avenue, Montreal, Can., has charge of their itinerary. The bevy of beauty is headed by Miss Ruth M. Purcell. of Washington, D. C, who is 21, with big eyes, fair skin and she a brunette. She is a stenographer, too, and she was a dark horse in the contest; in fact. she didn't enter herself at all, but a photrgrapher-friend did, and she won. The girls represent, among other places, Halifax, N. S. ; Boston and Law rence. Mass.; Manchester, N. H. : Worcester and Lynn, Mass.; Portland, Me.; Montreal and London, Ont.; De troit, Winnipeg, Edmonton. Calgary. Fargo, N. D.; Kansas City, Seattle, Wash., and various cities in Missis sippi. Oklahoma. Montana and even Chicago found a winner. Strangely enough, the old axiom that Southern belles are the most beautiful was proved true in this con test, which really was quite repre sentative. Miss Purcell, from Wash ington and that is considered South, generally speaking was first, and a Maryland girl. Miss Clara McAbee. won second place, only a few points behind the girl from the National capital. Strange enough, too. she is a black haired beauty, with oval features, with a Latinish mold of expression. The contest, it is maintained, was decided strictly on merit, as the judges were artists several of international fame. They were: Max Wieczorek, A S. Keszthelyi, Mrs. Antonia Selvill, Mrs. Maude Davis Baker and Commisr sioner-General Davis, of the Panama California Exposition at San Diego. Mr. Davis was the only one of the judges who does not lay a certain claim to being an artist- So that all may know why the girls coming to Portland are supposed to be the 100 most beautiful in the country, the judges announced that they decided on points as follows: Expression, 20 points; regularity of features. 15; temperament, 10; eyes. 15: carriage, 10; teeth and mouth, 10; hair. 10, and general health. 10. The girls represent the most beau tiful of their respective communities on photographic contest, but when they were assembled In Los Angeles recently, the personal Judgment was made by the artists above and Miss Purcell won out. The Chamber of Commerce will make fitting plans for entertaining the party while in Portland. PICNIC DINNER SCHEDULED Governor Withycombe Will Speak at Colombia Park July 5.

SARGENTIGH IS ALIVE REPORTED DEATH IX SERBIA DIS PROVED BY CABLE MESSAGE. Nicholas Sargentlch, of Sun Francisco, Kotlftea Elks' Lodge and The Oregonlan. Dr. Spiro Sargentich, well known in Portland and Tacoma, Is alive, well and happy in Serbia. The report of his death received about May 2o was erroneous. This information comes from Nicholas Sargentich, a brother of the doctor. The brother, who is in San Francisco, sent the following telegram to the sec retary of the Portland lodge of Elks, of PORTLAND DOCTOR WHOSE MES SAGE DISCREDITS REPORT OK HIS DEATH IN SERVIAN WAR ZONE. which he is a member, regarding the doctor, who is a life member of the Tacoma lodge of Elks: "Just received cable from my brother. Dr. Spiro, well and happy. Please an nounce through The Oregonlan that re port of death untrue. (Signed) "NICHOLAS." Dr. Sargentich returned to the land of his birth last December to fight the typhus epidemic that was ravaging the Serbian army and the cly.il population of that country. When his death was reported last minth it was generally credited because of the known heavy casualties among doctors and nurses fighting the plague in the stricken country. if f ' ' .

Laurelhunst Park Friday night Peninsula Park McElroy's Band opened ts season of park concerts yesterday afternoon with a programme in the Washington Park and scored a success whicn indicates that Director McElroy is in a fair way to surpass his triumphs of two seasons ago, when he was in charge of the Municipal Park concerts. The day was ideal for an open-air concert. v and accordingly a crowd of many thousands of people was massed about the bandstand. In the intermission between the first and second half of the programme. Mr. McElroy held an informal reception on the steps of the grandstand, where scores of his admirers thronged to con gratulate him upon the successful opening of the season. The new band represents the pick of the city's professional musicians. The director has drawn from every band in the city, from the Oaks Band and from some of the theaters, and the result is probably, as near an "all-star" organization as could be developed lo cally. The programme yesterday Was well balanced between popular and classical selections, and the band was gracious in its encores. Probably the most im pressive selections were the Wagnerian selections from "Feinzi" and "Parsifal." Popular numbers were judiciously in terspersed and the general effect of the programme was satisfying. The second programme will be given tonight at 8 o'clock in the park block near jenerson street.

By actual count 15.479 persons vis ited the vessel between the hours of 8 o'clock in the morning and 5 o'clock at night.

By the middle of the afternoon hundreds were lined up awaiting their turn to cross the narrow gangplank onto the liner. Officers esti mate that within the last 20 minutes before 5 o'clock fully 1000 persons went aboard the steamer. Captain Hunter and his corps of offi cers and the members of the crew re ceived the visitors hospitably and as sisted in piloting them about the steamer. With the exception of the engine-room every part of the vessel from top to bottom was opened to the visitors. Harbormaster Speier and Offi cers Powell, Todd and Gordon remained at the gangplank from 8 A. M. to 6 P. M. handling the crowd. There was no accident even of a minor character. The large, roomy cabins and decks of the liner prevented congestion on the Northern Pacific in spite of the large number on board during the day. The crowd was a good-natured one, in spite of the fact that during the aft ernoon many had to wait hours for an opportunity to go aboard the vessel. City Detectives Leonard and Vaughn and members of the harbor patrol and police force assisted the officers of the big ship in handling the crowd. Visitors to the ship took advantage CJ the opportunity to inspect the facili ties of Municipal Dock No. 1. the North ern Pacific being moored in the new slip at the north end of the dock.
