Hand Badly Burned.
A gasoline lamp In the house of John
Gansnelder. at 6 Union avenue, exploded
last evening and the interior of the
dwelling was ruined. While -.Gansnelder
was lighting the lamp, the alcohol lighter
would not work, and the hot fluid falling
upon his hand caused him to run to the
kitchen sink Before he could return, the
blazing alcohol and gasoline had spread
the flames all over the room. The alarm
came in from box 235 at 8:37 o'clock, and
the department responded promptly.
The fire had spread so rapidly, how
ever, that the firemen could do nothing
but save the adjoining house and keep
the fire within the Gansnelder residence.
Some $500 worth of furniture was burned.
Including a carpet valued at $155.
Gansnelder's hand was burned painfully,
"but not severely. He and a male friend
were the only persons in the house at
the time. His wife is very sick and is
away from the city. Gansnelder Is the
chef at the Louvre.

OLD CABIN FOR NEW HULL
UPPER WORKS OF THE TELE
PHONE WILL BE MOVED TODAY.
Rivers Are Still Rising ana the
Stand Predicted Is Not Yet in
Sight New Alaska Lighthouse.
Housemoving on the water Is not a
common occurrence here, but it may be
seen at Smith's boatyard, at the foot of
Columbia street, this morning. Joseph
Pacquet, the veteran boatbullder, has
built a new hull there for the Arrow Navi
gation Company's steamer Telephone.
The old Telephone has been moored along
side, and today a force of men will pro
ceed to move the entire cabin from the
old to the new hull. The process will be
similar to any othor case of housemovlng,
horse winches furnishing the motive
It was expected to have the moving done
yesterday, and at noon the army of car
penters and boatbullders knocked off work
to make room for the housemovers. But
so much had to be done in laying the ways
and making other preparations that the
only work accomplished was the raising
of the house. Early this morning the
tackle will be laid and the upper works
will be slid over in short order.
The old cabins, as they stand now, are
not very ornamental, but the dingy ap
pearance Is principally due to the jEact
that the paint was burned off the wood
work. The new boat, when completed,
will exactly resemble in outward appear
ance the old steamer Telephone. That
she will be faster than her predecessor is
the general belief along the water front.
The engines will be much more powerful
and the boiler larger. No one appears to
know where she is going to run, though
she will probably go to Puget Sound.
It will take about six weeks to complete
the steamer. Mr. Pacquet wtis asked yes
terday if the boat would be floated by the
high water or launched down the ways7
and replied emphatically that she would
be launched. Although resting on the keel
blocks, she is already over a foot in the
water, and if the river rises much higher
will certainly float, but the builder figured
out the prospects for a flood this year be
fore ho began construction- "Mr. Beals
says we will have 25 feet," said Mr.
Pacquet. "but it Is my belief that the
river will not reach 24 feet, and I think
I am right."
HALF A FOOT A DAY.
Willamette Continues to Rise Slowly
Will Not Come to Stand Monday.
The Willamette rose half a foot yester
day, and this morning "stands at 23 teet.
Weather Director Beals says It will reach
the 24-foot stage Wednesday at The
Dalles and1 the Columbia will rise slowly
for several days. Little that la new Is
presented in the reports from the upper
rivers. The Snake was stationary at
Lewiston and fell a trifle at Rlparla." The
Columbia at Wenatchee rose one foot, and
at Northport 1.3 feet. Moderate cool
weather will prevail at the headwaters of
the Columbia and Snake during tbe next
One foot more of water here , is Hkely
to catch many storekeepers unprepared,
notwithstanding the warnings they have
received. That much of a rise will put
the -waters in nearly all the cellars on'
North Sixth street and In that neigh
borhood, and so far as- known -but. few of
the merchants have removed their goods
yet A two-foot rise will flood the cellar
of the new Federal building.

STRIKERS LOSING GROUND
CHICAGO WAITERS FAIL TO GET
OTHER 1 UNIONS TO WALK OUT.
Hotelkeepers ' Are More Determined
Thau Ever to Fight the Battle
to a. Finish.
CHICAGO. 'June ;13. The second, day in
the striken of t-thal hotel ' and restaurant
employes iln- 26 'Chicago hotels brought
desertions from the ranks of the unions
and increased determination -In the minds
of the hotel-owners to Ignore what they
term the arbitrariness of the striking em
ployes. Vigorous efforts of the strike pickets to
prevent the delivery of coal, meat and
grocery supplies created some excitement
around many, of the hotels, "but every such
effort was balked by business agents of
the various unions involved- In the at
tacks, and even the milk wagon drivers;
who had declared in favor of the strikers,
were forced by officers of the National
Teamsters' Union to obey the general
laws of the organization and to refrain
from a sympathetic strike.
The attempt of the strike leaders to en
list the teamsters, engineers and firemen
failed. Before the end of the day the
cooks and waiters abandoned hope of sup
port from other unions.
A canvass of the hotels where strikes
have taken place shows -that most of
them are in fair working condition.
Against a total of 2517 employes who have
gone out, the hotels m the aggregate have
a working force of 1752.

against the Atchison, Topeka cc Santa, Fe
Railroad, a circular letter signed by the

agents of all the roads centering in Chi
cago. The letter asks the ticket agents
when routing passengers and freight to
discriminate against the Santa Fe.
The trouble between the telegraphers
and the Santa Fe is of long standing. In
1890 the telegraphers and station agents
became dissatisfied with their pay and
working conditions and sent a committee
to Chicago to make demands and after
many conferences a strike was called. The
officers of the order say that the company
by a subterfuge Induced the men to re
sume work at the end of 17 days, and they
also say that those who took part In
the strike have been discriminated
against ever since by the Santa Fe and
some other roads. The Santa Fe has not
been employing members of the order for

phone yesterday to learn whether it would
be profitable to rob his place of business

protection. Scott has never been In the

all day yesterday to receive telephone
queries as to the size of check he could
cash.. The person who telephoned refused
to give his name, but said repeatedly
that he would soon be at the store, and
wished Scott to cash a check. Finally
Scott became suspicious, and notified the

Webers Used By Members of
the Grau Grand Opera Com
pany and Many Other Fam
ous Musicians Who Con
tributed to the Brilliancy of
the New York Season Just
Past, Now Displayed at Eilers
Commencing tomorrow. Monday, morn
ing, an exhibit of extraordinary Interest
to professional musicians and music-lovers
generally will be hold In the recital
hall of Ellers Piano House. It will be
nothing less than the display of nearly
two carloads of the very choicest pianos
that have been used during the past sea
son by the Grau Grand Opera Company, of
New York. These Instruments were se
cured by the Messrs. Eilers on their re
cent trip East, and are, without question,
the choicest that have ever come to Port
land. Probably there Is no city in the United
States, according to population, that has
as many fine resident musicians and
wherein so large a percentage of the pop
ulation are enthusiastic music-lovers, a3
we have here. The best musical talent In
the world Is thus drawn to Portland, and
the season Just about to close has wit
nessed many brilliant and successful mu
sical events by home artists, as well as by
these from abroad.
Grand opera, however, such as Is pro
duced In New York, and In but very feT
Other Eastern cities. Is, on account of Ua
great expense, and owing to our limited
population, not yet possible here. During
the past three seasons Maurice Grau has
brought to America the greatest array of
musical talent that has ever been assem
bled in Christendom. Artists coming from
the musical centers of every civilized land,
and among them all the Weber piano, on
account of the purity and singing quality
of Its tone, has been the favorite. The
Weber pianos now on display at Ellers
Piano House are instruments that have
been used during the past Winter by these
men and women, whose wonderful voices
have swayed and thrl'.led the most bril
liant and discriminating audiences ever
assembled In America or Europe. These
instruments have been their companions
in practice work and pleasure, and, owing
to the sympathetic and voice-supporting
tone quality for which Weber pianos have
long been distinguished, they have no
doubt contributed greatly to the glorious
triumphs achieved by these artists. They
are most handsomely cased, and while one
or two of them may show here and there a
slight mar in casework, they are not only
every bit as. good as new, but probably
better than new. In that they have been
developed by the careful and conscientious
usage they have received.
The collection embraces nearly two car
loads of baby grand and upright Webers.
We have here now the Weber pianos
that were used In New York by:
