GHTS ?10 FOR DIVORCES.
AcgBQeats as to tae Legality of the
Last Grand. Jary Decision
by Jadfire Sears.
Attorney U. S. G. Marquam yesterday
filed a mandamus proceeding in the state
circuit court, to test the Question oC the
right of the county to exact the district
attorney's fee of $ In divorce eults. When
that office was under the fee system, the
fee -was retained by the district attorney.
The act placliig the district attorney upon
a salary provides that he shall not retain
any fee. and that all fees shall belong to
the county. Judge CleJand Informally held
that the clerk of the circuit court should
collect the ?M fee in divorce cases, ao
usual, and pay the same over to the county
treasurer Instead of to the district attor
ney. Some attorneys have expressed an
opinion adverse, but have not seen fit to
flle a suit in order to obtain a direct de
cision by the court. The present case is
for that purpose only, and is a friendly
The title of th suit Is State of Oregon
ex ret, IHSe Fitzgerald vs. Dan J. Moore,
clerk of the state circuit court. It is al
leged that Bffie Fitzgerald filed a suit
against "William Fitzgerald for a divorce,
and tendered the clerk $5 as the lawful
fees, and that he declined to file the case
unless an additional district attorney's fee
of $W was paid. The court is asked to
issue a writ of mandamus directing the
clerk at once to receive and file the com
plaint Judge Frazer set the matter for
heartag February 12.
There are about 1E0 divorce suits filed
each year, and if the fee Is not upheld
the county will lose about 51500 yearly.
Suits have been filed In the state circuit
court ag follows:
Investors' Mortgage Security Company
vs. George S. Pershln et al., to foreclose
a mortgage for $3009 on lot 4, block 51,
August Nieeen against Mary E. Keller
and Frank Keller, to foreclose a mortgage
on lots 2, 8, 4, 6 and 18, block 52, Sellwood,
Fred Behorst against J. L. Dunlan et
al., to foreclose a mortgage on lot 4,
block 1. Elizabeth Irving's addition, for
$1600. Dunlap holds the property as trus
tee for L. B. aBd E. A. Seeley, and James
Julius ush, against Rebecca Rybke,
Simon Mish, Joseph Mish, Maurice Mlsn,
Goodman Mish, and Bella Mish, for the
sale of lot 1, block 122, Portland, In which
xrfatatiff and defendants each have an es
tate of Inheritance, amounting to an un
divided one-seventh interest. ,
R. L. Sabtn, secretary Merchants' Pro
tective Union, vs. Robert Ford, to recover
$346. Ford conducted a cigar store on
Washington street, near Seventh. Re
cently he transferred It to Mrs. May
Morrill, and she disposed of it to B. W.
Taggart. The plaintiff garnlsheed Mrs.
Morrill and Taggart, and both answered
that they held no property belonging to
Ford. The plaintiff may now invoke the
involuntary bankruptcy law, which pro
vides that any transfer by a debtor made
within four months Is subject to the
claims of creditors.
Decisions by Judge Sears.
Judge Sears, in the suit of the Singer
Manufacturing Company vs. T. J. "Driver,
sheriff of Wasoo county, to recover a ma
chine, overruled a demurrer to the reply
ef the plaintiff, and Intimated that a mo
tion for; judgment on the pleadings might
la the suit of James C. Stuart vs. Wil
son & Reed, a demurrer to the answer
was sustained. In this case the answer
sets up usury, that will have to be proved
by parol evidence, the note sued on not
Indicating usury. The court holds, as
Judge Fraser did recently, that the an
swer is good.
C. W. Cather vs. W. R. Burt; demurrer
to amended answer sustained.
E. H. Ohlgreen vs. H. H. Emmons et al.;
demurrer to amended complaints over
ruled. Plaintiff alleges conspiracy on part
of defendants to get away with his cows,
under an attachment, though they were
subject to execution. The court was doubt
ful if the action could be maintained, but
finally concluded to let the complaint
stand for the present.
Marion J. Lane petitioned to be ap
pointed administratrix of the estate of
Nat H. Lane, deceased, valued at $2300.
The heirs are the widow and a brother and
Robert A. Frame, administrator of the
estate of William McKenzle, deceased,
petitioned for leave to sell the lands to
provide funds. The land In Klamath
count' is mortgaged for $1300.
The final account of A. Seines, adminis
trator of the estate of John O. Barkken,
deceased, was filed. The appraised value
of the estate was $886.
Hattte You was discharged as adminis
tratrix of the estate of John Yott, de
ceased, having settled the estate, and was
appointed guardian of the minor children.
The sutt of F. A. Bryant against the
Oregon state board of dental examiners,
to compel them to grant plaintiff a license
to practice dentistry In this state, was
yesterday dismissed by Henry E. McGinn,
attorney for Bryant. Counsel gave no
reason for his action, so the motive can
only be conjectured. Bryant contended
that he passed a successful examination,
and that the board maliciously refused
him a certificate. The defendants, in their
answer, set up that Bryant failed to pass.
Recently, Judge Sears ordered the ques
tions and answers of the examination sub
mitted to plaintiff's counsel for inspection,
and that te as far as the case got.
Recommended for Mercy.
Edward Flanntgaa, an ex-policeman,
was yesterday found guilty by the jury
which tried his case of larceny of $60
from William Stewart The Jury recom
mended him to the mercy of the court,
and that he receive the lowest penalty,
which is imprisonment of one year. The
money was stolen from Stewart by F.
Esham. and he gae Fiannlgan $ of it.
The three persons were drinking together
In a saloon. The jury was out eight hours.
At a former trial of Fiannigan the jury
disagreed. The case against Esham was
dismissed, because of the belief that Flan
nigan led him to commit the crime, but
this Fiannigan denied.
Petitions in Bankruptcy.
Petitions in bankruptcy were filed in the
United States district court yesterday by
Kewman H. Cottrell. of Pilot Rock, and
Stephen Blank. CottreU's liabilities were
placed at US.MC 10, while his assets were
represented by the minus mark. The pe
tition recited that the applicant had been
tn the stock business several years past,
and that as early as MM was so badly in
volved that everything he possessed had
pawed from hts hands to meet obligation's.
Blank's Habilities were estimated at $775,
and assets at the same figure.
WITH A CLEAN BOX SHEET.
Xe Soats Reserved la Advance of Sale
for Bnisa Nevada.
The box aace at the Metropolitan was
tcaUged yesterday by applicants for seats
to the Bwim Nevada coneert, and the
tetasmone was kept busy all afternoon.
Every roquent to la- aside seats was re
fused, for the reason that Manager Jones,
in order to keep faith with the public,
derided to open the sale, as announced,
at id A M Monday, with a clean box
J&eet. Ope application came for 40 seals
In a bunch. Manager Jones further de
cided to limit the sale to 10 seats for one

WOK THREE GAMES. ,
Multnomah. Defeats Commercial Club
Border In the Interstate Match.
Multnomah, 3; Commercial, 1. This was
the result of last night's games at the
Commercial alleys, which were the last
between those teams In the Interstate con
test. The Multnomah team kept up Its
record for fine bowling, and rolled up a
total of 1039. Except In the second game,
which It won by nine pins, the home team
failed to do very good work. Craft again
did some sensational bowling, andt se
cured high total, with 210. Commercial
had Eckenberger on in place of Skiff, and
he led the tome team In individual scores.
Multnomah now has nine games won out
of 12 bowledv and will go to the Sound as
high Portland team, whatever may be the
result of neat Saturday night's games at
home against Arlington. These will be the
final games between the Portland teams.
All teams rto to the Sound on the 16th.

HOSE HOUSE FOR NORTH END
City Gets a Leaic on a Suitable Piece
Klcolal Bros, yesterday gave to the city
a lease on a lot in block 29, Sherlock's ad
dition, which is to be used for the erec
tion of a hosehouse for the volunteer fire
crew of that section. The house will
be put up with contributions from business
men of that community; but in its plans
the Idea of converting it into a station
for regular firemen will be adhered to.
The fire department will furnish the ap
paratus for fighting fire after the house Is
completed, and as soon as the business
of that district demonstrates Its title to
protection by the lty, regular firemen
will be placed in charge.
Mayor Storey has been most Instru
mental In getting the business men
worked up to take this method of protect
Injr their property- The big rolling mills
and other manufacturing plants are near.
The volunteer crew will be given every
facility possible fox efficient work, and
will doubtless be abJe to accomplish much
In cases of emergerlcy. There is a grow
ing sentiment among experienced firemen,
however, that extrimen, in which rank
volunteers will come so far as this objec
tion applies, cannot perform nearly so
much as a regular csew. Extramen must
run from their pieces of work, which
are frequently distant from the hosehouse,
and sometimes have to overtake their en
gine or hose cart after It has started. They
reach the fire exhausted and tired, and
where sudden, vigorous action Is demand
ed, extramen are not in condition to
accomplish as much as those who are not
fagged. But extramen or volunteers are
better than no fire protection "at all, and
until the city can afford something better,
property-owners welcome any additions.
The new house will accommodate one en
gine and one hose cart. It is announced
that work will be commenced soon.
EVANS-JOST BOXING CONTEST
More Tlinn Ordinary Interest In tlio
Coming: Match. i
A grtat deal of Interest la taken by local
admirers of pugilism in the coanmg contest
to be held February 16, at the Exposition
building, between Charles Jost, the welter
weight champion of this state, and "Dud"
Evans, the well-known and favorite local
That this will be an event of more than
passing notice goes without saying, and
the contest is not only a matter of talk
between local patrons of the sport, but It
seems as if the Eastern fraternity have
heard In regard to it, for during the week
the managers of the contest received a
telegram from an Eastern welter-weight
of prominence asking that a match be ar
ranged with the winner, and challenging
him. It Is expected that he will be present
at the ringside.
The last contest between these two men
was a rattling go, and lasted 18 rounds.
Jost, who was the successful man, says
he is determined to end the contest in a
shorter time; While Evans says he is con
fident of regaining his lest laurels. He
has been training very faithfully for the
event, and Is now in the pink of condi
tion, and will enter the ring in better
form than ever. He is under the care of
William Tallant,of Astoria, the well
known mile runner.
During the week the balance of the
$250 side bet was posted- with Slg Wer
thelmer. The managers have matched two
crack-a-jaclcs to box a 10-round prelimi
nary. The boxers have not fully decided upon
a referee, although several have been
spoken of. among them Jack Grant, Jack
Wilson, of Ilwaco; Jim Keatlnger, of As
toria; Bud Smith, of Vancouver, and Jack
O'Day, of this city.

MECCA OF PROSPEROUS
MAGMTlfDE OF BUSINESS EXTEU
1 PRISES IN NEW YORK. '
James J. Hill the Type of the Man
NEW YORK. Jan. 30. What first Im
presses anybody from the Pacific coast
who visits New Yorlc Is the magnitude of
every successful business enterprise -that
Is conducted here. The forces that are
put Into play in the direction and con
trol of a great New York business ar
truly titanic in their far-reaching results,
and the responsibility for the manage
ment of a truly representative Eastern
corporation Is a duty that the greatest
monarch of ancient or modern times might
have avoided with alarm.
There Is the genesis of the Industrial
world out of which by a wonderful meta
morphosis has evolved the condition that
preceded the period of modern Inventions
and the still later era .favoring the adop
tion of these Inventions to uses to the
welfare and the comfort of the highly de
veloped man of today.
The practical man of affairs of contem
porary times Is the man who rules the
world. It may even have always been
so for the man who attains the highest
pinnacle of fame may not be the greatest
thinker of his age or the only molaer
of popular sentiment. There has always
been the power behind the throne, and the
quiet man of grPit intellectual research in
Industrial line3 may have exerted in past
ages marked Influence In shaping the,
destinies of nations just as he does today.
Anyway, the great man of business is a
factor In our body politic that cannot
be ignored, and if he carries no more
influence than he did 100 years ago, If
will be admitted without protest that he
Is more In evidence than his peer of an
cient times In the Industrial world ever
presumed to be.
We speak of this as the utilitarian age,
In which the precepts of the moralist, the
teachings of the college professor ana
the dictum of the political leader are no
longer the buoys of faith to which the
Intelligent masses anchor their hopes. This
may be true In a measure, but only so far
as the hysterical side of mawkish senti
ment may be divorced from the dignity
of a reasonable self-control of intelligence
which deals only with sentiment that la
wholesome. We still respect the educa
tor; we do ndt deny to our clergy 'the
substantial support and even the reverence
which their ministrations to the sufferings
of weaker humanity entitle them to; and
It is possible that our pent-up enthusiasm
Is stirred as It never was before over the
promulgation of the sound doctrines of
the political economist or the statesman.
But we have dethroned the false gods o'f
the medieval ages, and the genius at
whose shrine we worship today Is he
whose master mind has evolved the plans
that pave the way for the greatest ad
vancement along the lines of modern in
In the far-reaching results of his genius
as affecting human progress, an Edison
Is worth a legion of college professors.
A Jay Gould, even whose wrecking meth
ods so justly called down upon his head
the denunciation of art outraged Dopulace,
laid the foundation through his wonderful
genius for organization, of a work that
has resulted In reclaiming a vast region
of territory formerly unoccupied, that
now furnishes homes for millions of self
supporting and Intelligent people. The
great systems of railroads he brought up
to the highest state of efficiency now
furnish steady and remunerative employ
ment to a legion of contented and high
salaried wage-earners. The milllohs even
he left behind him In the main are invest
ed in properties, the use of which con
tributes directly to the public's benefit.
It Is a truism, an axiom, that no man
who has shown the ability to build up
any great industrial enterprise can be
anything but sound In the. general tenets
of his faith. He is usually a just man,
and always a moral man, so far, at least,
as the Issue of morality may apply to his
own social environment. In his knowl
edse of human nature and of human af
fairs, as well as in his special ability to
associate himself with the men most
worth of his confidence and support, ha
I Is supreme. He is more frequency than
umcTwise not unaerstooa oy tne masses
of the people, because he has cultivated
neither the arts of the diplomat nor of the
declalmer. It will be found, however,
when he Is sounded on almost any subject
of modern thought, that he has advanced
ideas on Issues he has thoroughly mas
tered, and he understands many subjects
well. He can be. entertaining, even elo
quent His advice is always sound ana
his sympathies, where they are enlisted,
The type of the man who accomplishes
things Is personified in James J. Hill,
president of the Great Northern Railway
Company. The type of the highly educat
ed man, whose prop in life Is the support
so generously given by practical men or
affairs men who realize clearly the bene
fits of advanced educational methods
and who lncldentallyvmay foster a wish,
laudable In Itself, to perpetuate their mem
ory and their fame in the costly monu
ment of a well-equipped and liberally en
dowed college, is Thomas Starr Jordan,
of Stanford university. Mr. Hill, when
he deigns to speak on any subject of
public import, is almost Invariably right,
and he Is always sound. When Dr.
Jordan volunteers to talk on an Issue that
may affect the welfare and progress ol
the state as a whole, the statement can
be made on a conservative basis that he is
Invariably wrong. One man has molded
a career from a cast that was most care
fully Inspected for flaws before the first
run of metal was made. The other has
builded a beautiful superstructure on a
picturesque foundation, that was never
examined for the weak spots that would
ill withstand the crushing powers of the
Immense load it would subsequently be
called upon to carry.
New York Is the Mecca for the highly
successful man. The men who have mado
millions in the West come to New York
to live, because It is here alone that they
can find profitable and safe Investment
for their money. The business Interests
centralized In New York are directed by
men who In the main have been arbiters
of their own fortunes. These men are
no less- geniuses in their line than Napo
leon was (a prodigy In bis. While many
of the large private fortunes of the East
have been kept Intact for several gener
ations past the fact remains that no
commodity In New York today is so cheap
as money. Intelligent human endeavor,
backed by a commercial honor, and a
sound constitution, Is the mainspring of
success now as it always has been. The
man who can do things Is never denied
financial backing in New York. The
genius even who could guarantee a net
return of 4, 5, or, at most 6 per cent on
any Investment In Portland, would have at
once millions placed at his disposal by
Eastern and foreign capitalists. Largo
sums of money are not sent West today
because the Eastern capitalist feels that
Investments there on a large scale cannot
be made productive.
Oregon, it is clearly recognized here, is
a state with a wonderful diversity of re
sources: but Oregon yet has made bu
little real advancement along the lines
of modern industrial development Its
business men. In the main, are still look
ing for the large profits, which come only
from the conduct of a small business
under exceptionally favored conditions.
They have not yet reached the stage of
J advancement where a Just appreciation of
the fact thaarge fortunes are accuired
In the manufacture and r e of staple
articles of consumption where the magni
tude of production or sale makes small
profits possible. Out of the idea of big
sales and small profits has rrown the
modern department store, and much as it
has been maligned, the department store
hrs come to stay.
J As a qualifying statement J$ may be
said that Oregon during the past few years
has made seme substantial advancement.
Its woolen mills are now turning out
fabrics that command a sale across the
borders of a continent Its flourlng-mil.3
industry, developed along the lines of the
most modern Industrial growth, finds the
world as a market for its product. The
output of Its saw mills enjoys a wide sale
throughout the western part of the con
tinent and lumber In large quantities is
now regularly floated from Portland docks
to the Orient and to South American
A single instance of what well-directed
energy can accomplish In Oregon will
impress the people of the state with the
vast opportunities for advancement here.
It was not many years ago that a master
machinist was running a lathe In the old
car shops of the Southern Pacific Com
pany at Portland. This man today Is at
the head of the Wolff & Zwlcker Iron
works, one of the leading shipbuilding and
lronworklng plants of the West. Mr.
Wolff, It may be added, understood hl3
trade first before he became an employer
of men. That he was big enough to grasp
the opportunity of Portland's favored
locallon for the establishment of the great
plant bis firm has established there, is
best shown by the success the business
has already attained. Everybody abroad
who Is In touch with Portland's industrial
growth now speaks favorably of the ex
cellent work done by" the Wolff & Zwlcker
All of the Oregon Industries enumerated
above, as well as many others, have suc
ceeded because they have been conducted
by men who thoroughly understood their
business, and after distinct modern meth
ods. But In the sense of any marked ad
vanced growth Oregon has not yet passed
the provincial stage of her history.
It js the freely expressed opinion of
those who have examined the business
status of the East carefully, that It is
lack of enterprise alone that prevents the
state from occupying a position among
the most prosperous commonwealths of
the country today.
There is nothing that Is a better index
of the prosperity of any producing section
of country than Is found In the amount
of traffic handled by the lines of railroad
which may lap the district In question. A
single Instance will show the people of
Portland the extent of the heavy freight
traffic which centers at the great cities on
the Atlantic seaboard.
In coming from Harrlsnurg to Phila
delphia some weeks since, I passed 10
freight trains in a period of 12 minutes.
Each of these trains consisted of from
40 to 60 cars. By way of comparison, it
is only necessary to refer to the traffic
of a leading railroad entering at Port
land. The Southern Pacific run3 on an
average one regular freight train a day
each way over Its main line extending
south from Portland, on the east side of
the Willamette valley. During the wheat
shipping season the company may run
more than one freight train a day over
this part of its northern route, but if it
does the cars are hauled one way empty.
Portland will never perhaps attain the
present dimensions of any of the trio of
great cities on the Atlantic coast, but if
the business of the Willamette valley
an empire In Itself can ever be developed
to the point that will justify the Southern
Pacific Company's lines, which afford the
Valley an outlet for Its products to the
Portland markets, In running as many
daily freight trains as may be passed on
the Pennsylvania lines east of Pittsburg
any day of the week In the short period
of a quarter of an hour, Portland will
then be on the high road to metropolitan
wealth and Importance.
Portland's real industrial growth dates
from the collapse of the boom following
the period of speculation before '93. That
the city today occupies a stronger posi
tion in a commercial sense than it did
before the collapse of Its early boom must
be accepted as conclusive evidence of the
latent; possibilities of the rich country of
which the city will always remain the dis
tributing and banking center. Portland
is the metropolitan center of three states
whose business some day will give sup
port to a population as dense as now oc
cupies any of the richest Industrial dis
tricts of the Middle West.
In Its perfected system of urban and
suburban lines of transportation; in its
connection by rail with distant parts or
the continent; in the volume of Its export
and jobbing trade, New York sets the
pace for America. In its perfected system
of hotels alone, New York is said to beat
the world. Its leading caravansary, as
everybody knows, Is the Waldorf-Astoria.
The magnitude of the business of this
hotel can be appreciated from the state
ment that its kitchen alone furnishes
steady employment to 350 people. Another
150 employes find work In the engine
rooms of the hotel. These 500 attaches,
together with the great number of waiters,
clerks and attendants engaged In the up
per apartments of the house, make up an
army of menials that no hotel in the West
today would undertake to accommodate.

statement that the single Item, the break

AFFAIRS Of THE EAST SIDE
SUDDEN DEATH OF MRS. B. F.
Republican Clubs 'Will Not Consoli
date Creamery Site Secured
' To Flume Railway Ties. ,
Mrs. Lucy Ann Monger, wife of B. F.
Monger, living at 35 East Twenty-second,
corner East Pine utreet died very sud
denly at her home Friday night at -11
o'clock. Her death was a great shock
to her family, and wholly unexpected,
and a very1 sad conclusion to what had
been a pleasant family gathering that
evening. During Friday Mrs. Monger
had been in a cheerful and happy frame
of mind, and that evening until about
10 o'clock the family had enjoyed a game
of cards. She had retired only a short
time when she complained of feeling
very badly, -and called for a drink of
water. Then she got up, and every ef
fort was made by Mr. Monger and the
children to relieve her. Dr. T. C.
Humphrey was summoned by John B.
Monger, the eldest son, but Mrs. Monger
was dead before he arrived at the house.
As the death was very sudden, the coro
ner held an. inquest last evening, and the
verdict was death from paralysis of the
heart, superinduced by rheumatism. It
was brought out that Mrs. Monger had
suffered severely from rheumatism In
the past, and that on two occasions seven
years ago and one year ago she had
dangerous attacks of hearb trouble, but
had passed through them. However, her
health had been excellent for some time.
Mrs. Monger was born In Lafayette coun
ty, Wisconsin, and was 47 years and 10
months old. She was an estimable wom
an. She leaves a husband, two daugh
ters and one son. The family have re
sided In Portland one year, and previously
lived in Tacoma.
Clubs Will Not Consolidate.
From present Indications there is small
prospect that there will be a consoli
dation of the republican clubs of the
ninth ward, In response to the Invitation
and appointment of the conference com
mittee by the new Sound-Money and Ex
pansion Club. None of the other three
show any disposition to give up their
organizations. These other clubs are the
Union, Multnomah and the Sunnsyide
Clubs. Inquiry among the members of
these organizations yesterday demon
strates that efforts made In that direc
tion will be wasted. One republican re
marked that he was unable to see what
the new club had to consolidate, and that
if the president and members think there
are too many, they vlll be welcomed to
Join one or more of the clubs which have
been named. It Is considered doubtful If
the other three organizations will ap
point conference committees.
Site for a Creamery Secured.
It is now certain that a creamery will
be established at Pleasant Home. Mr.
Kern, who has been looking over the
grounds for a suitable site, has at last
secured a good location on the main
road and near a spring. Mr. Kern Is
having the lumber hauled with which to
put up the necessary buildings, and he
says that the creamery will be In run
ning order in three weeks. The plan
seems to have met with the heartiest
support of Pleasant Home people, and
the sawmills have donated considerable
lumber toward it Proctor &"' Bears do
nated 2000 feet of lumber, Stone & Cum
mlng 1000 feet, and Hllliard Bros. 1000
feet Besides this, the teamsters have
agreed to haul the machinery free of
To Flume Railway Tics.
The milling company of Stone & Cum
mlng, at Pleasant Home, Is Intending
to move Its sawmill this spring to Bear
creek, about four miles east of the pres
ent location. The firm will build a flume
along the creek to the Sandy river and
float the ties down the river, Instead ol.
hauling them to Troutdale. This method
of getting the ties to Troutdale Is con
siderably cheaper than the other way.
