All Manner of Charges Asserted in
Suits for Divorce.
Bosena Amatuzzl avers that she has
become tired of being kicked, beaten,
stabbed and abused by her husband,
Alessandrlo Amatuzzl,' and she has
filed a complaint in the State Circuit
Court through her attorney, Xlbert
Ferrcra, asking that she be granted a
legal separation and a division of the
Mrs. Amatuzzl in her complaint sets
forth that at the time of her marriage
to the defendant in New Jersey, in
1896. he promised to support her and
to provide for her two children of a
former union. Instead, she asserts,
Amatuzzl during the first four months
of their domestic bliss compelled her
to take in washing and send her son
out to work, while Amatuzzl loafed
around and enjoyed himself. Mrs.
Amatuzzl alleges that her husband had
considerable money and when employed
earned good wages, but gave her but
little. He struck, kicked and beat her
in the face, cut her with a table-knife
and threw a plate at her, striking her
on .the head. Such occurrences, she
says, were frequent, and on one oc
casion not long ago she caused his ar
rest for beating and kicking her. He
went to California and remained away
eight months and did not support her
during his absence. His ill-treatment
of her caused her to go to the hospital
for medical attention. Mrs. Amatuzzl
also says when they came here from
New Jersey she paid her fare and that
of her two children with money she
herself had earned. Amatuzzl owns
property at Fifth and Meade streets

Defeats Opponents at Armory In In
door Baseball Game.
The armed hosta of the indoor baseball
teams of Companies H and K, Third Regi
ment of Infantry, met on the fiold of bat
tle last night in thp Armor'.
It was not altogether a battle massa
cre Is a more fitting term and whon it
ended the score board showed 31 to 12 in
favor of Company H. No blood was shed,
no wounded wore carried off the field, nor
were the injuries sustained sufficient to
necessitate the appearance of the Red
Cross, yet all the elements of a slaughter
were In evidence.
This was the first game to be played
under the Armory League, and bravely
did the opponents face each other. In the
first inning Company H could only make
a tally of one, while Company K went
them one better In their half. The sud
den push in the path of victory proved
the undoing of Company K. however, for
in the second inning Company H added
seven to their one. From then on the
painful monotony of the game was only
relieved by the really clever and daring
work of Company H. "With the regularity
with which they hit the ball, the reck
lessness yet safety shown in stealing
bases and the team work displayed, it was
simply a matter of Just how big the score
for Company H would be.
A feature of the gamo was the pitching
of Austin for Company H. Captain Do-
bie, of the same company, did clever work.

For Company K Captain Jenkins showed
up well, and his team pulled off several
double plr.ys deserving of credit.

California Picking Out Apples
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Nov. Sa (Spe
cial Correspondence.) All previous
estimates and calculations have been
upset in California by the sweeping Re
publican majority In the State Legisla
ture. In the Assembly tho Republicans
will have 76 and tho Democrats four. In
the Senate the proportion Is about the
same, so the Senatorial fight is again an
open one.
Moreover, the cut-and-drled prograramo
which includes the Speakership, the main
committees and junketing trips, will have
to be remodeled. At present it looks as
though "Phil" Walsh, of Oakland, would
be chosen Speaker. He is a prominent at
torney1 and a friend of Governor Pardee.
The San Francisco delegation, however,
will make a fight to name the Speaker.
. The presiding officer of the Assembly
last year was Arthur Flsk. Flsk has since
become Postmaster of San Francisco. Ho
has. by the way, entered tho United States
Senatorial lists, as has Truxton Beal, cx
Mlnlster to Turkey.
Preparations have begun here for the
season of grand opera, which will occupy
one week and possibly two in April. The
entire Conried Company is coming, in
cluding chorus, orchestra and stars, a
total of 250 people. The Conried aggrega
tion will come to San Francisco direct
from Chicago. There will be a complete
production of "Parsifal," beside operas of
lesser fame.
The Grand Opera-House ls being remod
eled to admit of the performance of
"Parsifal." An advance artist has arrived
and Is superintending the reconstruction
of the stage. The opera will be sung here
Just as it was in New York, with Mmcs.
Nordlca and Fremstadt alternating in the
roles of Kundy. Alois Burgstaller, the
greatest living" German tenor, will sing
the role of Parsifal. Although but one
week has been alloted to San Francisco,
local enthusiasts will endeavor to have it
extended to two.
Tho Glee Club of the University of Cali
fornia and the De Koven Club, an alumni
organization, have decided to extend their
summer tours to the Portland Fair in tho
hope that they can spend a month or so
there. The Glee dub was "engaged by the
California commissioners to sing -at the
state building at the World's Fair and
these concerts became one of the most
popular features of the Golden State's
representation. It ls believed similar ar
rangements will be made at tho Lewis and
Clark Exposition. "
California has Instituted a general move
ment to gather the finest display of apples
the country has ever seen for the Portland
Fair. It is felt that an ordinary apple
display would be worthless "beside the
Oregon apple exhibit, so the plan is to
outdo Oregon even in her own specialty.
This part of the. exhibit is now being col

Japanese Graduate of Portland Law
School Is Honored.,
A great many brilliant young men have
graduated from the Portland Law School,
but there is not one among the number in
whom tho members of the faculty take a
greater pride than in F. T. Mateuoka.
who stood next to the highest in his class
here, and who is now in Shanghai, having
been appointed to a high position in the
Japanese diplomatic service after passing
the most difficult legal examination, in
Japan, defeating In- the competition all
the aspirants from the Peers College and
the Imperial University.
. Mr. Matsuoka, who is now only 24 years
old, came to Portland 14 years ago, and
spent 12 years here, studying hard all the
time. Ho was a boy of very noble char
acter, a devoted Christian and member qfri
the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which
he was converted under Bishop Harris.
When "he went home to Japan, he found
it necessary to "grapple with his own lan
guage," as ho wrote to Portland friends,
"but resolutely set to work to study the
Japanese and Chinese classics.
In a letter received on Wednesday by
one of his- friends here, Mr. Matsuoka
gives a very entertaining account of his
hard work In taking the government ex
aminations mentioned.
The first examinations, in which he
stood highest, included English and Jap
anese composition, condensing and syste
matizing of papers relating to legal mat
ters, writing an outline, from memory, of
an address of an hour and a half, con
servatism In either English, French or
German, and physical examination.
The second stage occupied four days
with laws and economics, and another
four days with verbal examinations of
subjects before mentioned. This thorough-going
examination ended on October
13, having started with 31 applicants, only
13 of whom were left to finish the exam
ination. Mr. Matsuoka tells the story of his sue-
cess as follows, modestly saying, flrst,
mat ho only tells his friend this because
pf their very close friendship and under
standing: ."When I went to tho Foreign Depart
ment to learn moro about the result of the
examination, I was told that the laurel of
the head seat fell on me away outstrip
ping the brilliant boys from the Imperial
University and from the Peers' College.
This year tho government wanted more
men for the diplomatic service (usually
only four are taken), and seven passed,
four from the Imperial University, one
from among the student secretaries and
this bachelor. What is a student secre
tary? Well, the man at the office of tho
Japanese Consulate in your city ls one.
There's a hard line or bar between such
secretaries and the official order I'm now
entitled. to belong to.
"On the 4th Inst, I wag made a 'Koto
kwan, or higher civil official, and ap
pointed an attache to tho Japanese Consul-General
at Shanghai. So, there I sit,
next to Mr. Consul-General: Thl3 is not
quite bad to begin my official lifo with.
I'll be ready in a few days to be off to
my native village, and wih be in Shanghai
at my post before the end of the month;
so you can zee how busy I've been.
"By tho. way, some of the boys at the
Imperial University are, they say, wild
that a boy from a Yankee university
phould havo beaten their men squarely in
the arena of the highest governmental ex
amination in the Empire; and no wonder!
To make tho matter worse for them, this
year they had some of their beat men,
such as Mr. Matsubara, a graduate of 1901,
acknowledged widely to be one of the best
and most "brilliant scholars of the Interna
tional law in the Empire, and yet out
stripped. "Will you be kind enough to inform Mr.
Thornton, of the Law School there, of the
abovo fact? I've never forgotten the kind
ness and painstaking training received un
der him. Perhaps ho would be rejoiced to
learn of it.
"When I get to Shanghai, and havo a
little time to spare. I shall rewrite and re
vise my essay (theme, "Maritime Cap
ture") and forward to the Oregon Univer
sity, or to Mr. Thornton. In It I covered
many grounds never covered by any Jurist
before this date, closely studied out all by

ron, I slept a poor student and woke a

truth, I've never been and am not a man
of fashion, but now my position forces
upon, me that I shall be more attentive to

Contract for Portage Road Is
Agreed Upon.
Road Will Be Substantially Built and
Rolling Stock Wfil Be Purchased
New, Including Coach and
Modern Locomotive.
Contract for construction- of the Port
age Road has been agreed upon by the
state board and A. J. McCabe, tho con
tractor, end McCabe is now preparing to
submit his bond ot 550,000. That prelim
inary finished, the negotiations will be
closed up at once. He has until next
Thursday to give bond, and immediately
thereafter will be required to begin work.
The road ls to be finished by May 1, so
as to be out of the reach of the next high
water. McCabe is to receive $151,000 from
the state, but the Open-River Associa
tion will pay him perhaps 530,000 more.
The road will be substantially built and
its rolling stock will be flrst class. No
second-hand equipment will be used, for
the state committee and the state board
are resolved that there shall be no in
terruptions ia its service. A telephone
line and a passenger coach, have been
added to the specifications, and a brand
new locomotive. All this will increase
the cost beyond the original estimate.
5163,000, the sum which tho Legislature
appropriated nearly two years ago, but
the state Is not paying the extra cost,
so the state board ls satisfied.
The board was convinced a long time
ago that the appropriation was insuffi
cient, by the reports of competent en
gineers. When the Open-River Associa
tion proposed to raise the additional funds
required, the board stipulated that the as
sociation should furnish an engineer, who
would build the road for the amount of
the appropriation, the association to have
its own agreement as to the additional
remuneration. The board also stipulated
that right of way should be secured be
fore the contract should be let. The as
sociation has brought negotiations for
right of way to successful issue.
Owing to the peculiar character of the
project, the contract Is not to be award
ed "by competitive bid. Inasmuch as tho
contractor will have to rely on the good
faith of the Open-River Association for
bis remuneration. Some contractors have
complained, however, at the method
which the association has adopted insist
ing that competitive bids should have
been asked for. One of them, W. F.
Nelson, says he was assured by the state
board and by members of the Open-River
Association that he would be permitted
to submit a bid for the contract, but has
never received the promised opportunity.
W. J. Mariner, of Blalock, secretary of
the association, was in the city yester
day. Judge Mariner found no fault with
the complaint, but believed Nelson would,
view matters differently if ho understood
the true conditions. Judge Mariner said:
"Tho association had a most difficult
task on its hands. It had to furnish a
contractor tP do the work on the state's
specifications for the money in tho fund.
For the rest ho had to look to the asso
ciation. In addition, it had to furnish
a right of way, keep off the canal right
of way and generally do things of great
difficulty. It has done them all after
months of -labor, when it was thought to
be impossible. It was not an ordinary
task. The road called for is first clas3,
with, new rolling stock throughout, a
good road anywhere and one that will
do its work. When the time comes for
the committee to render an account of Its
stewardship it will cheerfully abide the
verdict given by those who have made
the building of the road possible."
Prominent Business iftan Expires in
San Francisco.
Sigmund Feuchtwanager, a member of
the firm of Neustadter Bros., died in a
San Francisco hospital November 23 of

Grandma Found It Convenient.
It Is remarkable what a change can be

weak, was sent out to visit one of my
sisters, and she induced him to start in
on Grape-Nuts and cream in place of the
erdinary food used.
When the boy camo back after an ab-
senco of about six months we could hard
ly believe our eyes. He had grown over
three Inches in height and was an entire
ly different felipw in every way, always
ready for any athletic sport proposed
and on the keen go all of the time, while
before he only wanted to sit or He down
and suffered greatly from headaches and
general prostration.
So we put our little girl on Grape-Nuts
and she grew well and healthy and rosy
in a short time.
Then mother, who is 82 years old, be
gan using Grape-Nuts and would fre
quently put tho food Into soup or with
an egg into a bowl and pour broth over It.
She had formerly been trouble with
her stomach, suffering great pain at
times; now she says the 'invention' has
cured her and she uses Grape-Nuts in a
variety of ways puddings, dressing for
chickens or turkeys, griddle cakes and
all sorts of nice things.
Tho boy has been using Grape-Nuts
now for about two years and has grown
something over seven Inches and gained
about 25 pounds, and i3 still improving."
The little girl's letter is too long to re
produce, but It Is written In a very cun
ning style and tells her own story of how
sho got over being sick and was able to
go to school again, making four grades
In a short time, and how well and
healthy she felt and how much she loved
the Grape-Nuts.
She heard her mother tell her auntie
that "Grape-Nuts was a Godsend," so
she thought God made Grape-Nuts, until
sho got hold of the little recipe book
one day. which she found in the package,
and the folks explained to her that It
made by some men In Battle Creek.
Name given by Postum Co.. Battle Creek.
Mich. Look in pkg. for the little book,
"The Road to Wellvllle."
You walk with
her, you rock her,
you give her sugar,
you try all kinds
of things!
But she coughs
all through the long
night, just the-same !
No need spending another
night this way. Just a dose
or two of Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral will soothe the
throat, quiet the cough,, insure a good night's rest.
Ask your doctor about the wisdom of your
J keeping this remedy in
night coughs of the children. Doctors have the
formula. They know all about this medicine.

The building line still keeps ahead of
tho real estate market, though there has
been more property sold In the aggregate
during tho past week than building per

been included In the lot. That was for
$140,000, more than the week's sale ot real

With Dukes and Other Notables.
Colonel J. T. M. Harrington, the laird
of Pillar Rock, who left several weeks
ago for a visit to his old home in Aln
wick. England, has been heard from, and

which took place within the old baronial
walls of Alnwick Castle. There was a
large muster of votaries of tho chase,
among them being Colonel Harrington,
the Duke ot Northumberland, Lopd Allan
Percy, Lady Margaret Percy, L,ady Mary
Percy and many others, including repre
sentatives of the Bedford and Morpeth
Also in the columns of the Guardian
appears the following:
"A worthy man of Alnwick is back
amongst us for his annual visit. Wo al
lude to Mr. Harrington, the American
Salmon King. Mr. Harrington has pros
pered In the land of his adoption, but he
has not forgotten the "canny little toon"
on the banks of the. Aln, and every year
Journeys across the sea to spend a month
or two among his friends in Northum
berland. His noble presence, his cheery
greeting and his hearty handshake as
he meets friend after friend upon our
streets are good to witness and to feel.
Long may he live to carry on the huge
salmon business which he has established
In his American home, and to visit his
friends and relations In Alnwick."
