CITY NEWS IN BRIEF
Parties desiring offices In The Oregon
Jan building, may Inquire of Portland
Trust Company o Oregon, No. 123 First
street, or the superintendent In the build
ing. "Mk. Cohen's Statement. Mr. David
Cohen, who was recently arrested for vio
lation of the alien-contract law. and upon
examination yesterday was held to appear
before the United States grand Jury, be
lieves that he is the victim of misplaced
confidence. Mr. Cohen is a ladies' tailor
and is very well known in this city, where
lie has been In business for years. One
lutratH-e branch of his business is among
the Japanese of the city, and when a.
well-to-do Japanese customer came to him
a few days ago, and asked him to take
as an apprentice a bright Japanese girl
who was desirous of learning the busi
ness, he thought that he would give offense
if he refused, so, although he really had
rco place for the girl, he consented to give
her a trial. Mr. Cohen says that he
thought that the girl was in Portland, but
gave very little attention to the matter,
aa he thought It could make no differ
ence what section of the globe she came
from. As Mr. Cohen cannot write Eng
lish, his wife drew up the contract, and
he affixed his signature. The customer
said that he would soon have the girl on
hand, and Mr. Cohen thought no more
of the matter, until a United States dep
uty marshal placed him under arrest, and
told him he had contracted to bring a
Japanese girl from her native land. Mr.
Cohen feels that he has been imposed up
on, and desires to make this explana
tion to set himself aright. Cohen was
held to answer in 5100 bonds.
Failed to Pay as Promised. The fail
lire of John O'Leary, a drug clerk, to
keep his promise and pay Mrs. Minnie
Gusky a stipulated sum on account of re-j-ponsibillty
for an accident befalling her.
brought him before Justice Gelsler yester
day on a charge of assault and battery.
In December last O'leary, while driving
down Sixth street, ran over Mrs. Gusky,
who is employed at the Opera laundry,
severely injuring her. O'Leary promised
to pay the woman a sum equal to that she
had been earning at the laundry, but not
only failed to do so, but also abused the
woman when reminded of his promise.
O'Leary was arrested and placed under
550 bail, which was declared forfeited
yesterday. A few moments after the de
fendant appeared in court, stating he was
ignorant of the time that court met, and
seemed greatly depressed over the forfeit
ure of the $50, which a friend had fur
nished. Regarding his refusal to pay
Mrs. Gusky as promised, O'Leary said it
had been impossible for him to do so, as
he was hardly getting enough wages to
support himself. Hearing of the case was
Teset for Monday, and a revocation of the
forfeiture of ball may be ordered.
Police "Well Pleased. Chief of Police
Mlnto and members of the city detective
force feel well satisfied over the prompt
conviction of J. D. Burke and Frank Sel
der, the latter best known as "Denver
Dutch." Both are ex-convicts, and were
hardly out of the penitentiary before again
engaged in crooked work. They, with an
other pal and ex-convlct named Knapp,
robbed an old man named Tiffany, but
Knapp escaped by turning Informer. The
chief and detectives only hope that the
two convicted men will get a term of
years that will keep them in close quar
ters for a long time to come. Another
source of gratification to the police Js the

Chinatown Breaks Loose. For some
miexplainable cause, the Chin faction of
the Chinese colony found it necessary to
raise a most unearthly din last evening
by exploding SOO.000 firecrackers. None of
the crowd would explain just why the
fupilade was made, other than that the
Chinre were having a good time, and the
expenditure of $500 for firecrackers was
the least part of the outlay. Pon See. tho
court interpreter, wanted it understood
that It was no celebration for any Japan
ese victory, but entirely a Chinese family
affair, with no politics in It.

The Poor Farm's Expenses. Referring
to strictures of the last grand jury about
the expenses of the poor farm. County
Accountant Pope states that there may
have been a misapprehension as to what
the expenses really are. The average bill
Is a little over $700 a month, for keeping
100 inmates, which the poor farm has
contained for a long time past. This Is
$7 per month for each inmate. This in
cludes the hospital, medicine, the salary
of the county physician, who also attends
prisoners in the county Jail, the salary of
Superintendent McBride and assistant,
and the boarding of all of the Inmates,
who receive three meals a day. The past
two months the bill of the poor farm
has been a little larger than usual, by rea-
f son of bills for building materials, used in
building additions to the houses.
Directors Elected. The stockholders
of the Portland Speed and Driving Asso
ciation met last night and elected the
following directors for the ensuing year:
A. G. Ryan, P. J. Mann, Woodson Scog
gin, W. W. McGutre, S. W. Aldrich, Ed.
Long and A. C. Lohmlre. The directors
will meet Monday and elect officers, and
start immediately on preliminary arrange
ments for the spring meeting. The pres
ence Is expected of noted California and
Montana horses. It is the purpose of
the association to make the spring meet
ing the most notable racing event in the
history of the Northwest. The purses
will aggregate from $20,000 to $25,000. the
largest ever offered. The length of the
meeting will be 15 days.
Held for Larcent. George C. Leland,
a dissolute young man, was found prowl
ing about the Coeur d'Alene lodging
house yesterday morning, and is now held
at the central station on a charge of
larceny. When searched several pawn
tickets were found on his person, one of
them being for clothes stolen from F.
Cunningham, one of the lodgers in the
house where Leland was found. The
clothes were found In'a Third-street pawn
shop. Last July Leland forged the name
of parties in Portland on a bank check,
for which he was indicted, but for some
cause that was the last heard of the mat
ter. Just Simply Lett Home. George Wil
cox, the 18-year-old son of J. E. Wilcox,
a. Mount Scott, who turned loose his mules
from his wood wagon and disappeared, the
other day, has been heard from. His
father has learned where he stopped for
the several succeeding nights after he
left, and the facts seem to be that he has
simply concluded to strike out for pastures
new. Probably the young man will turn
up some Christmas eve, 40 or 50 years
hence, with the load of wood under his
arm, and astonish his parents by Inquiring
if the mules came home all right.

EAST SIDE AFFAIRS.
A Burglar Eaters Gan-Trap Smith's
Grocery Store.
The grocery store of W. S. Smith", on the
northeast corner of East Sixteenth and
East Stark streets, was broken Into Fri
day night and robbed of about $15 worth
of hams, bacon and sugar. Mr. Smith and
a friend, a Mr. Ilansil, came to the store
yesterday morning- at the usual hour of
opening, when they discovered that a
window in the door of the annex on the
east side of the main building facing on
East Stark street had been broken open.
Closer examination showed that the door
had been forced open by the bolt on the
inside being drawn. This could be done
very easily by putting an arm through
the hole in the window in the door and
pulling the bolt upward, when the door
w6uld come open. On the inside the glass
was scattered over the floor for a dis
tance of about 10 feet from the door,
showing that in order to break the win
dow a sharp blow had been struck.
The door leading from the annex into
the main store remained locked, and no
effort seemed to have been made upon it.
Mr. Smith made an inventory of his loss
by the burglars, and found four large
hams, a side of bacon and a sack of sugar
had been taken, the whole being valued
at about $15. The store is not occupied
and the burglars had everything their
own way. A light was burning in the
main store, but In the annex, where the
robbery was committed, it was perfect
ly dark. Mr. Smith stated that before
"losing Friday evening he made a tour
3f the entire building, and investigated
every portion, as he had the impression in
some way that an attempt would be made
to rob the premises.
This is the third time this store has
been robbed. The first time occurred
about a year ago, when the annex was
entered through a rear window. After
that Mr. Smith determined to set a gun
trap for the next man who should at
tempt to rob him. The gun was set In the
main store commanding the door leading
into the annex, and set in such a way
that whenever the door of the annex was
opened it would be discharged. Mr. Smith
always contended his object was to
frighten or malm whoever broke Into the
store for felonious purposes, and killing
was an idea furthest from his inten
tions and desire. However, the unex
pected happened in this case. Mr. Smith
expected that any one breaking into the
store would enter the annex first and
then open the door leading into the main
portion of the building. He had pointed
the gun so that If it dicharged it could
do no harm to any one entering the main
store from the annex. It did not occur to
him any one would pass from the main
portion into the annex. This actually oc
curred, only the man never got through
into the annex. This attempt was made
last summer, and Mr. Smith found when
he entered the store in the morning the
stiffened corpse of a man named More
house lying on the floor. The gun-trap
had worked better than was expected.
Morehouse had entered the main store
first, and In opening the door of the an
nex was shot in the leg and bled to death.
It will be remembered, that Mr. Smith
was bound over to -the grand Jury on a
charge of manslaughter, but was after
ward exonerated by that body. Whether
the burglars who broke Into the store
Friday night thought the deadly gun
awaited them on the inside of the main
store can only bo conjectured, but they
appeared to have no inclination to find
out this fact by opening the door. Mr.
Smith states, however, they could have
entered the store through the door with
perfect safety as the gun-trap was per
manently laid aside after Its first suc
cessful operation.
A Small Blaze.
A spark from the chimney started a
small blaze on the roof of the buildings
of Mr. J. D. Lee, on Union avenue and
Belmont street yesterday afternoon. The
department responded very promptly to
an alarm, but the fire was extinguished
without its aid. The building is occu
pied by Mrs. Gladding. It was a lucky
excape from a fire.
Miscellaneous 'Solon.
The Centenary church has been annoyed
for some time by the presence of a lot
of young fellows who persist In hanging
around the entrance, making remarks
about people entering. Captain James
has detailed Officer Jackson to look for
them and put a stop to the annoyance.
Chief Buchtel states the new truck
house on Holladay avenue will be ready
for the truck company by the first of the
month. There is considerable work to be
done before it will be ready. The plas
tering is badly cracked and will have to
be repaired, and, in fact, a good many
changes inside of the building will have
to be made to get it ready. Work is in
progress on the addition in the rear of tho
building.
The Holladay & Irvington Women's
Social Club will give an entertainment at
the residence of Mrs. Theodore Nicolal,
4f5 Holladav avenue, on Tuesday evening,
February 12, 1S93. The evening will be de
voted to music, games and dancing. A
cordial Invitation to all. Proceeds to be
applied in furnishing a room in the Pat
ton home for the friendless. Admission,
25 cents.
LIVING IN THE CELLAR OR
THE GARRET.
Two years ago we were In the garret
and pn the roof now we're in the cellar
and in a year or so will be on the roof
again. Somehow we can't seem to under
stand when It is storming that it will ever
do anything but storm, and when the sun
is shining no thought is ever given that
perennial sunshine will not last always.
One-hnlf the time we are down in the pit
with the bears gnawing our vitals, and the
other half we are' on the mountain top
being hoisted in mld-alr by the elevating
horns of the bulls. This is always so in
a growing community; it advances, then
recedes, and then advances again, and
each time it reaches higher stages, than
ever before. We have just had our fever
and are nowexperiencing the reaction.
Then we were all millionaires; now we are
all paupers, so to speak. But good will
come out of it; all the while our growth
and general prosperity are going forward.
Even now the general tone of public ex
pression is exercising Its influence by daily
salutations more and more encourag
ing. This is an omen that always pre
cedes better times, and it is a condition
precedent to them. Better feelings make
better times. Our aim is to make better
feelings. DeLASHMUTT & SON.

PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER.
An Attendance of Over OOO of Port
land's Representative Ladles
and Gentlemen. Yesterday.
It Is Indeed gratifying to the manage
ment of "Pharaoh's Daug-Mer" to know
that their efforts in the amusement line
have met with such public favor. The at
tendance has been far In excess of their
expectations, and the class of patrons has
consisted of the best people of the city.
To those who have not as yet witnessed
the performance, we wish to state that it
is strictly moral and essentially respect
able, and an entertainment that appeals
to the ladies in particular. Imagine, if ybu
can, seeing a full-size marble statue trans
formed into a beautiful young lady before
your very eyes. She descends from the
stage, renders a pathetic ballad In a beau
tiful and artistic manner, again returns
to her pedestal, and Is once more trans
formed Into the statue of marble. It is
next to Impossible to ably describe this
wonderful Illusion: it must be seen to be
appreciated. We have a year's lease on
the premises we now occupy, and it Is
our purpose to from time to time change
our programme so as to have new and
novel attractions to meet the demands
of our patrons. However, it might be well
here to call attention to the fact that the
transformation of "Pharaoh's Daughter"
is our best attraction; for that reason
we exhibited it as our opening card, 'so
as to gain the confidence of the public,
as it undoubtedly is the most wonderful
Illusion ever presented to the world. As
an extra attraction in connection with
"Pharaoh's Daughter," we will, commenc
ing Tuesday, give a series of living pic
tures, having engaged Mr. Paul Saroni,
the celebrated living-picture artist of New
York, to arrange and put on for us some
of his best studies. Mr. Saronl's pictures
were visited by swelldom of the East, and
the most conservative of his audiences
indorsed his exhibitions to the extent that
they attended frequently with their fami
lies. In truth, it is an art exhibition in real
life. The price of admission, notwith
standing the extra attraction, will remain
the same 10 cents. The prizewinners for
children in the word contest will be an
nounced In Monday's paper. Washington
street, opposite Olds & King's.

A CARD.
We have completed our Inventory and
closed our books for 1834. We wish to
thank our friends for their kind patronage,
and take pride in stating that our trade,
since removing to our new store, corner
Third and Oak streets, has been far ahead
of our most sanguine expectations. It
proves that the publlo appreciates honest
values and fair dealing. Our aim has
been and will be to give good, reliable
clothing at reasonable prices. We are
making at our mill In Albany lines of
neat, desirable patterns in cheviots, cassl
meres and tweeds for spring and summer
trade. Wo have also placed our advance
orders for the latest effects In imported
fabrics. These, as well as our own make
of goods, will be made In regular, short
and stout, long and slim, and extra sizes,
enabling us to fit any one. Our country
order trade by samples has Increased so
that we were obliged to open a separate
depart.-nent for same,, and we send sam
ples and cuts of all lir.es, with plain rules
for measurement, fre to any address.
This coming season we Intend to devote
more attention to our boys' and children's
department: and 6h&llsrry full lines of
novelties and slapIe&aCmr unlorra de
partment has been a great success. We
equipped the Oregon National Guard, Port
land military band, Oregon Soldiers'
Home, American District Telegraph Com
pany, Pacific Postal Telegraph Company,
reform school, United States llfesavlng
service and many others. We are pre
pared to submit bids for uniforms for any
organization, as our electric factory is
complete In every respect. We employ
white labor at both factory and mill, and
the money paid us for clothing remains
on the coast.
To make room for cur spring stock, we
have decided to allow a discount of 10 per
cent on every article In our stock, Includ
ing four lines of Steln-Bloch Co.'s blue
and black extra-long kersey overcoats,
which were delayed In transit. As our
prices were reasonable before the cut.
an extraordinary opportunity Is offered
for a short time. For the same reason we
offer in our custom-tailoring department
to make suits to order in cheviots, tweeds
and cassimeres for $18, and pants for $4 60.

That's the way a good many tales are
manufactured out of nothing; but our
suits are made from the very best mate
rialsheep's clothing-. Tou are fleeced like
a sheep when you wear one of our all
wool suits, but you'll be fleeced the
wrong way if you go somewhere else
and pay all-wool prices for a worthless,
shoddy mixture that'll look seedy In no
time. The material and make-up of our
clothing are both above par. That's just
the reason why it always pays to get in
side one of our all-wool examples of the
current style, that offer unequaled value
In quality and wear.
