Highwayman Is Met -By a
Passenger's Bpot
His Companion Is Daaated Y the
Actios, of One Brave Man, nad
Althonsh Armed, AbBBdou
Attempt to itob.
But for the prompt and fearless action
of a passenger on a- Sellwood car last
evening the car '"would bave been held up
and the usual collection of money and
valuables made from the passengers. The
car, which was bound for the iillwaukle
barns, left First and Alder streets at
10:50 last evening, and -at illdway station
two masked men made a desperate effort
to board the car.
Standing on the station platform as
the highwaymen -were, the znotonnan saw
nothing unusual about them and slowed
down. Before the car stopped one of the
men attempted to swing upon the rear
.platform. A man, whose name could not
be learned, saw the linen mask covering
the man's features and immediately
kicked him from the step. The pistol In
the robber's outstretched hand did not de
ter the passenger from giving the high
wayman a vigorous kick, which sent him
eprawling. He didnot release his hold
upon the rail of the car, however, but
the conductor gave the signal to go ahead
full speed and the would-be robber was
dragged along the rough roadbed until
his band relaxed its grip upon the rail.
The other robber seeing the treatment
given his companion, made no attempt to
board the car. The car was filled with
passengers, who, learning of the danger,
began tosecrete their valuables.
The car following the one held up was
caught by the dispatcher at Gratton's
Grove and warned qf the possible fate
ahead. It ran through without stops. The
car which was boarded stopped at the
Crematory that the conductor might tele
phone to the company office. Soon after
It left Frank B. Gibson, superintendent
of tho Cremator, saw two men standing
at the gate to the grounds. Ho went out
to ask them what they were doing at
that hour of the night. They turned their
faces away and replied gruffly that they
wanted nothing. Returning to the house
Mr'. Gibson secured a revolver and ordered
the men to leave. Upon their refusal he
marched them some dlstalce down the
track at the -tfolnt of the gun. The descrip
tion of these men tallies very well with
that given of two of the three men who
held up the tiellwood car some weeks ago
, and a week before robbed the "Vancouver
, car. An effort was made by the police
to saddle the crime upon two deserting
. soldiers from Vancouver, but both men
were able to prove an alibi.
' Indian Sauarr Predicted Flood Two
Days Before It Cnmc.
HEPPNER. June 20. (Staff correspond
ence.) "Pretty soon," prophesied an In-
' dlan hag, two days before the Heppner
cataclysm, "Pretty soon heap Boston
, man, heap Boston kloochmari; all drown.
Pretty soon horses, cows, chickens die."
This prophecy was uttered by a weaz
ened squaw who looked as if, while play-
ing before her 6ire's wigwam, she might
' have seen Lewis and Clark como down
the Columbia. The prophecy came like
' an imprecation on tho white man. The
kloochman's leathery faco grew fiendish
, as she spoke. Tho white man that very
hour had played a prank on her. An ln
, nocent prank It was, but It made her
, shake her head thrice and onco and eay:
"Look out, big nood." Where now Is the
Indian witch? She's gone, and nobody of
, Heppner knows whither.
This Incident Is perfectly authentic, ac
cording to R. F. Hynd. a resident of the
1 devoted city. Mr. Hynd lost his wife and
. children in the flood. Every day since
k the disaster he has restlessly hobbled up
", and down the streets of Heppner, for
grief will not let him repose and a dls-
nbled leg will not let him walk. llr.
i Hynd fought for tho lives of his family
f la tho flood. Wife and children were
' swept away from his sight, but fate to
f him was kinder, or, as ho himself thinks,
less kind.
Mr. Hynd is not a superstitious man,
i nor do any of his friends doubt the epi
' sode. Though he does not regard it as
prophecy, yet it was a very strange coin
cidence. , Ono week ago last Friday, two days
. before the disorder, two ugly squaws
. came to a wool warehoueeVt Heppner to
chaffer for a trade In something or other.
An Appreciation of Mrs. L. Altaian's
ON TUESDAY evening last. In the
presence of an audience composed of
tho best and most highly cultivated people
of our city, a lecture was delivered by
our talented townswoman,Mrs, L. Altman,
that it was my grateful privilege to
One of Shakespeare's characters, ad
; dressing the heroine, says:
, Lady! thou vert tho cruelest she alive
To -take those sr&ces -with-thee unto heaven,
Ani leave tb world no copy.
If such a remark could be used In con
nection with the children of the body,
with how much greater force should It
apply to those airy and beautiful brain
children, of which this lecture was one.
Mrs. Altman, unfortunately for tho pub
lic, had prepared no manuscript of her
address, but for years she had studied her
subject: she had steeped herself in its
atmosphere of romance, and had drunk
deeply from its wells of pathos, poetry
and tragedy. And so ehe came before us
In her quiet, modest fashion, and In a
voice cttuned to the rhythm of her perfect
diction told the tale.
To attempt to describe t,he lecture In de
tail would be a work of supererogation;
let a few brief references suffice.
She flrst dwelt upon the Apocrypha as
a whole. She said that the Apocrypha Is
a neglected child of literature, a very
Cinderella among books, which Is being
rescued by that modern Prince, literary
criticism, from its obscurity. Rich and
varied. It contains many phrases to
which frequent allusions are made in
modern literature, which would be incom
prehensible without a knowledge of it.
Numberless works of art find their in
spiration in tho story of Judith and Holo
fernes. At an early date the Catholic
Church canonized tho books of the Apo
crypha, and it ha3 inspired some of Italy's
The one was of great years and had
waxed unwieldy from age. The other was
younger and more agile, and yet she
looked to be of more annual cycles than
sho could count. While this younger of
the aged couple was bartering with the
men.-ill at once the floor beneath her feet
lifted and bore her upward. The woman
stormed and cursed, but up she went
without a stop, and if she held any
charms of witchcraft they availed her
nothing. It was tho wareboil ft elevator,
which was Invulnerable to hw impreca
tions. The men had enticed her to stand
upon it, and, while she was bartering for
a trade, up she went.
Terrible was the woman's rage when
she alighted. Dark was her countenance
as dark as the great cloud that hovered
over tho horizon south of Heppner. Draw
ing her piebald-colored clothes about her,
she pointed with . a bony finger at the
cloud and muttered: "Pretty soon heap
Boston man, heap Boston XGootchman, all
go down."
The day before a heavy thunder storm
had burst "upon the town. Many citizens
were anxious yet not alarmed. But,
violent, as was this storm. It was but a
gentle shower compared with the explosion
of rain and hall two days later.
The new Sunday will dawn tomorrow
upon change Indeed. It will find a valley
once full of happy promise, now full of
mournful ruin. It .will find a town once
a bright center of culture and commerce
now a dark center of desolation. It will

And a bill back of town on which are
nearly 200 newly-made mounds. In those
mounds are husbands, wives, children
and neighbors. All week long surviving
husbands, wives, children and neighbors
have sought to find the faces which nqw
repose on the hill above the city.
But hope Is still with the living and it
has engendered determination to repair
the damage. Human bodies may be in
those great drift heaps, but farmers are
thinking of the next crops. New blades
of vegetation are shooting up through the
black mud; chickens are picking susten
ance out -of the ruins. Birds have resumed
their song and jackrabblts are restoring
their subterranean parlors.
Even the townsmen of Heppner are
planning to replace what the waters have
carried away. But will they build their
homes againso much at the mercy of
Willow Creek"? Prudence says nay. The
business part of town may stay where It
It, but the dwelling part will be on higher
ground on the east bank, perhaps, where
the courthouse and schoolhouso stand. A
deeper and wider and stralghter channel
may be cut for the creek.' Such a channel
Is not enough to insure the safety of the
town: the people must have their homes
on higher ground. A flood like this last
one would rise over tho banks of a
straight channel 12 or 15 feet. The "creek"
is now shrunk to a mere thread of water,
eight or ten feet below the edge of Its
banks. More floods are to be expected
in Willow Creek Valley. Vague memories
of earlier floods exist In Indian legends.
Distinct marks of earlier floods exist In
this valley. Pioneers hereabouts remember
cloudbursts In early days. Judge "W. P.
Dutton, a farmer, who lives below town,
recalls.. a mighty flood -in Hlnton Creek 27
years ago.
Probably never again will n. rush of
water down the "creek" work such havoc
on human life. The story of this last
disaster will go Into the fireside tales of
Willow Creek homes. to teach the youth
to beware of tho pitiless wiles of the

General Coleman has been asked for an

Romantic and Fasdnatine Lecture
most famous artists to choose -Judith for
the tribute of their glowing pencils, among
them Allori, Michael Angelo, Romano and
Great oratorios and dramas In many
languages have been written about this
romance, and fine poems have also found
their Inspiration therein. The tale furn
ishes us with historical types of the high
est dignity, force and purity. Judith la
the very embodiment of lofty and heroic
womanhood, to which her ideal beauty
lends an added charm. Holofernes Is
strength, might, majesty and force of will
personified. The epic of Judith and Holo
fernes Is a model for writers of all time
to strive to Imitate. If Is a story of life
among the Jews In the pre-Christian era;
Its detail of the campaign of Holofernes,
Its description of the distress among the
Jews, all told with Oriental richness of
coloring, and with a force and verve that
holds up spell-bound.
Tho closing song.of Judith is a triumphal
ode to the Most High, and to humanize it
all through it is a touch of lovo and
romance, contending with a great moral
purpose that goes straight to our hearts.
Such a lecture was worthy to have been
delivered before a great metropolitan audi
ence. New York or London would havo
appreciated It quite as much, or even
more, than our own people, and I sincerely
hope that other cities may yet have the
pleasure and enjoy the treat that has been
In conclusion I have but to say that It
has been my privilege In past years to
hear many noted lecturers, but never havo
I heard an address that more fully and
beautifully portrayed tho splendor and the
pain: the poetry and the passion of the
glorious people that Divine guidance led
forth from slavery Into light.

Remarkable Growth of Allen
& Gilbert-Ramaker Co,
Enoraioai .cpabiIob of Its BHsIaess
Requires Modern and Elegant
Quarters at Sixth and Morrl-
aon Streets. - -
.People passing the northeast corner of;
Sixth and Mprrl.sbn streets often stop to
view the "preparations being developed
there for the construction of a large
building to be occupied by the Allen &
Gilbert - Ramaker Co., tho well-known
piano and organ dealers, originally known
as the Wiley B. Allen Co.
If each passer-by knew the magnitude
of tho business that makes the construe-
tlon of this building a necessity; If be
had been told of tho Interesting history
of the Arm that will own it, of how they
have built their business up from a mod
est little beginning to the most success
ful of its kind on the Pacific Coast, he
would marvel at the success to be won
by enterprise, integrity and fair dealing,
and he would feel an unusual interest In
what the busy workmen are doing.
An Elegant Building;.
The building is to be a modem affair,
and will be the only complete one of its,
kind on the Coast. It will have a front
ago of 100 feet on Morrison street and "0
feet on Sixth street, and will have four
floors. In addition to the basement. It
will be fitted up with every modern ap
pliance. Including elevator, steam heat
and both gas and electric lights. It will
be substantially built of compressed brick
and hardwood floors, and the Arm will
utilize more than 30,000 feet of floor space
for the conducting of their business.
Money will not be spared In making It
the most complete and up-to-date store
of Its kind on the Pacific Coast, and It
will be worthy of the fullest apprecia
tion of the people of this city.
One thing that adds very much to Its
value Is Its central. location. On tho three
blocks adjacent to It aro the postofflce,
the Hotel Portland and tho Marquam
building. The Allen & Gilbert-Ramaker
Co. selected this convenient and expen
sive site as the .one. appropriate place to
erect the elegant, and -costly structure
needed In their business.
Could the originator of the firm have
looked forward and seen the result
of his humble beginning, he would have
undoubtedly been surprised beyond meas
ure. What has been accomplished by this
firm ought to prove an incentive to young
men who are Just entering on their career
in the business world.
History of tho Firm.
It Is now many years ago. In 1876, that
Wiley B. Allen' opened up a little music
store in the old Allsky property at Third
and Morrison streets, this city. He had
but 1500 to buy his flrst stock of goods,
which consisted of one or more pianos or
organs, -f ome sheet music and some sta-.
The little shop In which he began busi
ness was too large for his sole use, so
he occupied the one-half of It, whllo the
other portion was used by a dressmaker.
As may be Imagined, It was not an easy
matter to develop a paying business In
those early days with so small a capital,
but Mr. Allen worked hard, and at last
began to prosper. In speaking of those
early trials to his friends, he has told
very oft,en how he has laid awake nights
after his flrst carload of pianos had been
ordered, thinking how ho could manage
to meet the payments.
He met his obligations, however, and
soon found it necessary to order more.
Slowly tho business grew, and at last It
was necessary for him to obtain a. more
commodious location. In 1SS1 he pur
chased the place where the store Is at
present located. The building was then
but a one-story affair, and he paid $40,000
for It. As the business grew it was neces
sary to enlarge the building, and thus
three more stories were added to it, and
later three adjoining rooms for retail pur
poses, while a three-story building was
secured on Second street for storage pur
poses. But still the business continued to
grow, and now the elegant new building
in course of construction Is the result of
this resistless development. Just how
long even that will be able to meet the
demands remains to be seen, but It Is
evident that It, too, will be outgrown in
In 1633 the firm was Incorporated, and
In 1901 the name was changed from the
Wiley B. Allen Company to Allen & Gil
bert Company, Mr. F. If. Gilbert having
bought Into it. The new firm was Incor
porated for $100,000. and Mr. F. N. Gil
bert became its president In August.
1902, tho Ramaker Music Co., of Seattle,
purchased part of the Interest of Mr.
Allen, and the two firms were merged
Into one,' and the name was changed to
that of Allen &. Gilbert-Ramaker Co. The
capital stock was then Increased to $200.
000, all paid up. At the present time the
capital stock is close to $250,000. with un
divided profits.
A contract was entered Into on Novem
ber 2S. 1902, with Hon. L. B. Stearns for
the construction of the new building,
which 'will, as has been stated, be the
finest In the city. It will be ready for
use about October L
MagraltHde of Their Business.
But the Allen & Gilbert-Ramaker Co.
are not limited In their business In Port
land, for they have an extensive trade
throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho
and Montana. They have gained the dis
tinction of being the oldest, strongest
and largest piano and organ house In the
Northwest, They have one branch store
In Salem and another In Seattle, tho lat
ter being a two-story building, covering
a space of 50x100 feet and basement.
Their Oregon agencies are at Pendle
ton, La Grande, Grant's Pass. Roseburg,
Cottage Grove. Hood River. Forest Grove
and McMInnvIUe. In Washington they
have agencies at Spokane, Colfax, North,

coma. In addition to these, they keep nine
salesmen on tho road. Some Idee, of the
scope of their business may bo had from
their monthly shipments, which amount
to ten carloads, eight being of pianos and
two of organs.
Handle Superior Makes.
Tho renown of the Allen & Gilbert
Ramaker Co. Is so universal that they
can select from the manufacturing world
tho cream of pianos. They have the ex
clusive sale In this part of the world of
the fine, artistic Instruments, among
them being the Knabe, Steok, Fisher,
Everett, Hardman, Ludwlg, Baldwin, Ma
son & Hamlin and about 2i) other makes.
As an evidence of the superiority of
these Instruments, attention is called to
tho preference shown for them by the fa
vorite masters. When Hambourg played
at the White House, by special request of
President Roosevelt, he used a Knabe;
Gabrilowitch uses tho Everett; Raoul
Pugno, tho Baldwin; Harold Bauer, tho
Mason & Hamlin, and Theodore Thomas,
the Fischer. Thus the list might be
continued indefinitely, but the qualities of
th,e Instruments are too well known and
their popularity too well established to
require further reference.
Musical Center of the XortUTrest.
At their new building the Allen & Gilbert-Ramaker
Co. will make a musical
center for the Northwest. They will
tastefully furnish a large recital hall,
something that has never before been seen
In this city. It will have a seating ca
pacity of from 300 to 400. and will bo pro
vided with select Instruments.
One entire floor will be divided off Into
compartments to be used as music studios
for the use of teachers. The one great
aim of the firm Is to attract and to please
tho musically Inclined and to mako for
them a headquarters that they will ap
preciate. On the second and third floors will be
fitted up elegant music parlors. These
wlllbe so arranged that Intending pa-
irons win oe aDie to -see me pianos as ;
they would appear In their own home. !
In conclusion, it can be said that the I
Allen & Gilbert-Ramaker Co. have every I
reason, to bo' proud of what they have j
accomplished. The firm's present pros-
perlty Is the outgrowth of many years of 1
patient Industry and honorable methods,
that have won for them an undying pop
ularity. That they mean to continue in
the same lines and to improve where It Is
possible Is evidenced by the enterprise
they" are manifesting In their now under
taking. Xearly 1500 Pianos.
