Patent Excavating Machine. Edward
M. Zahl. a Portland man, has obtained
a patent if an excavator and dltch-dlgglng
"machine which he believes will be of great
assistance to builders and contractors on
water and mining ditches. The machine
consists of a scoop, operated by a cable
which draws It along the ground and
hoists it up an Incline to a platform, where
it Is Inverted and the dirt dumped into
a cart-car, or any other conveyance, on
on side. The scoop returns for a fresh
load on a cable, bent to a "dead man." or
post, and running from the platform to
which it has been raised. The machine
is operated by a donkey engine, and the
scoop Is guided by a man in the same
manner as an ordinary excavating scraper,
Two men can run the machine.
Crrr Acquires Slidino Land. Tester
day the tract above the City Park and the

land. The tract, which comprises about 57
acres, is In two tracts, the larger of
which belonged to L. F. Grover and Mrs.
Rachel Hawthorne, and the smaller to
the King Real Estate Company. It has
been the cause of much litigation to tho
city on account of its propensity to slide
down and wreck the sides of the reser
voirs, and to avoid further trouble of this
character, the Water Committee decided
about sjc weeks ago to purchase it The
price, something over J60.000. was paid yes
terday, and the city acquired the title to
Unitarian Wojcans acxtliabt. Next
Wednesday being the first meeting in the
month, is literary day for the auxiliary,
and an unusually entertaining programme
has been promised, which will be given
in the Unitarian Chapel. Dr. W. R. Lord
will make the address of the afternoon,
taking "Birds" for hlfl subject. Having
devoted much thought and study to bird
life, habits, customs, etc. in different lo
calities, he is ably prepared to present
this theme In an entertaining and Instruc
tive manner. Music appropriate to the
occasion will vary the programme. All
friends of the auxiliary and the church at
large are cordially welcome. Business

Little- Demand roR Assets. Mrs.
Sarah J. Henderson was the successful
bidder yesterday for the assets of the de
funct Union Banking concern. The price
this time was (227, a raise of CO over the
highest bid received at the previous sale.
There were several bids for portions of
the assets, but none other for the entire
batch was so high as that of Mrs. Hender
son. This effectually winds up the affairs
of this concern, which have been dragging
slowly along ever since the bankruptcy
several years ago.

Pretty Broad Claims, Fmlly-
Yerlned by the Facts.
TVe haven't sold much about Kimball
Pianos of late. The trouble has been,
we've not been able to get enough of them
during the past three months. As you
know, a lot of unscrupulous labor agita
tors tried to get complete control ofthe
high-grade piano factories hi Chicago.
They tried to run them to suit themselves.
"You pay the bills and sell the product"
they said to the factories, "and we'll do
the rest," The manufacturers could not
concede these unreasonable demands, and
therefore late last year, they closed down
until the men themselves could determine
exactly what they wanted. Six weeks
ago, everybody went back to work under
the old schedules, with the utmost of good
feeling; employer and workman each thor
oughly convinced that their Interests are
mutual, and that the one cannot exist and
prosper without the other. Kimball Pia.
nos are coming again now. Beautiful
pianos, oeiter ana more perfect uian ever.
ve received tne nrst carioaa of Klm
balls several days ago, but most of them
were sold before the car arrived. An
other carload of Klmballs arrived yester
day afternoon. This shipment contains a
number of specially selected instruments,
pianos picked out, before they were en
tirely finished, by our Mr. Ellers during
his lost visit East
The comnanv also telecranhed vesterdnv
that the big Kimball pneumatic pipe or
gan for the First Methodist Church, of
Eugene, was completed and shipped last
week, and we have' the assurance that
Kimball Pianos and Organs will be shipped
Out of over six hundred instruments sold
in this city by Ellers Piano House during
eleven months last year, three hundred
and twenty-seven of them were Klmballs.
This, bear In mind, is double the number
of all other high-grade pianos that were
sold In this city during the same length
of time. A most remarkable record?
Well, not exactly simply a matter of our
being able to furnish more Intrinsic piano
value In those of the Kimball make, than
could be obtained in any other. Only nine
months left now for this year's record.
But nevertheless we'll make the 19'0 list
more than twice as long. Just watch vs.
By the way. wo handle the Chlckerlng
also. The Chlckerlng, the world's best,
that has stood the test of nearly eighty
years, the Chlckerlng that has been Bold
in Oregon tor a third of a century. And
we sold more Chlckerlng Pianos week be
fore last, than had ever before been sold
in this great State of Oregon during any
one year before we started in business.
Pretty broad statement? It's neverthe
less a fact; and the reason well, we're
able and willing to sell a fine piano for
less money than can be done elsewhere.
Carload of Chlckerings are due Monday:
nlso a carload of the beautiful Weber
Pianos: then a carload of Klmballs: then
a big shipment of Milton Piano;, and next
a carload of the popular Singer uprights.
These with a number of carloads received
last week will keep us busy.
In last week's list of sales were two pi
anos (Klmballs) to a visiting stock man
of Rawlins. Wyoming, here last week, and
we pold another, also a Kimball, with the
wonderful self-playing attachment, the
Angelus. to go to Pittsburg, Pennsylva
