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 property. 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 and Mrs. Amatuzzl wants her share of It. C0MPA2TF H WINS.- 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. but this may toe sam ot nis enure team.

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 lected.

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 myself. "A poor student at a stroke a high of ficialaccording to the stylo of Lord By ron, I slept a poor student and woke a high official don't you laugh! To tell the 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 what I wear. Swallow-tails and frock coat, and also a high official ceremony uniform, with a feather hat and a gilded dagger all these forthcoming." The letter closed with affectionate re membrances of Portland friends, a prom ise to send a portrait taken In the dazzling new uniform. MEETS SUITS AND PANTS. Men's Overcoats.

MatsBOka. t c I ALL IE N&W READY Contract for Portage Road Is Agreed Upon. WORK- IS TO ' BEGIN SOON 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." SIGJUmD FEUCHTWANGEB. BEAD 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 stomach trouble. Hia ago was 51 years. He was a native of Germany, and com ing to this country entered the business of his uncle, Henry Neustadter. in San Francisco when a boy. He established a branch of the house In Portland, In which ho had an Interest, and later became a partner In tho parent house. He was a director of the San Francisco Board of Trade, but resigned that position before going abroad on an extended tour. He was also a director of Mount Zion Hos pital, San Francisco, and was identified with a number of charities as well as sev eral clubs. A widow and four children survive him. All the business houses at Sansomo and Battery streets, San Fran Cisco, were closed during his funeral. THE ''INVENTION" Grandma Found It Convenient. It Is remarkable what a change can be made in a family by a simple rearrange ment ot food. A Chicago mother says: "Much to my surprise, yesterday morning I found the enclosed letter on my desk, written by my 7-year-old daughter without any sug. gestion from a soul, and the little letter induced me to write something of our experiences. First, my son, who was very small and 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.

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 mits taken out. However, the permits would have been larger if the contract let by the O. R. & N. Co. to Wakefield & Jacobsen for round-houses in Alblna, had been included In the lot. That was for $140,000, more than the week's sale ot real estate. There is a great deal of building going on at the present time, however.

King's Heights is also beginning to be built solid. To ward the west end of all streets from Flanders to Qulmby there are many hand home residences being built.

From the Alnwick Guar dian of November 12r an account is clipped of the opening meet of the Percy hunt, 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 hunts. 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." NEW MANAGER PRESENTED.
