ISSUE IS AT AN END
Controversy Over Philippine
Exhibit Is Settled.
DISPLAY IS NOW vASSURED
For a Time Circumstances Made It
Appear as Though the Philippine
Representation Would Be
Yesterday afternoon President Goode,
of the Lewis and Clark Exposition Cor
poration, wired authority to St. Louis
and Washington, D. C. for the shipment
immediately of the Philippine exhibit, and
by this order '"finis" Is written to a con
troversy that has been taking place for
the past few weeks concerning this dis
play, a controversy which but for the
prompt action of President Goode ana
ihe directors might have resulted In no
Philippine exhibit coming to the Centen
sial. Back at the time when the Govern
snent appropriation web allotted there
mas a sum of $10,000 set aside for this
representation, the money to be used In
purchasing the display from the Philip
pine Board of Commissioners, who owned
the exhibit The purchase was to be
made and the representation consum
mated under the direction of the War
Department- John C. Scofleld, the rep
resentative of this Department on the
United States Government Board, was
sent to St. Louis to arrange for the pur
chase of the exhibit.
After carefully looking over the rep
resentation at St. Louis and considering
Important exhibits not made at the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Mr. Sco
fleld went back to Washington, stated
to the President and the War Depart
ment that a thoroughly representative
exhibit could not be made for less than
$15,000, and Interested the Oregon dele
gation in the matter. Senator Fulton
held a conference with President Roose
velt and other officials, the outcome of
which was that the appropriation for
the Philippine exhibit and display was
increased to the amount desired.
Commissioner Scofleld then returned to
St. Louis, and very carefully mado the
purchases, taking great care that the
representation should be complete in
every particular and representative of the
Islands. Upon his return to Washington
he received a shock.
It developed that during Mr. Scofleld's
absence the allotment of space In the
Government buildings had been made,
and that tho Philippine display had
cither been forgotten or ignored. There
was no room for the display for which
the Government had expended $15,000 and
for which the people Interested in the
Centennial had anxiously been awaiting.
Conferences were Immediately held, but
it developed that all the space "had been
allotted to the several departments, that
those- departments were making prepare.
tlons to make oxhiblts to fill the space
they had been allotted, and that nothing
could be done in tho matter without re
allotting the entire floor space in the
buildings and causing a great deal of
annoyanco and Inconvenience.
Another conference was held to deter
mine a way out of the difficulty. Then
President Goode received a wire that
caused another . shock. The message
stated the circumstances and related that
thero could be no exhibit from the Phil
ipplnes unless the Exposition officials were
willing to erect at their cost a special
building for the representation, tho build
ins: to cost not less than 57000.
President Goode held a conference with
his directors, who immediately came to
tho conclusion that It would be Impossible
for the corporation to erect such a build
Ing. On the other hand. It was consld
cred an act of Injustice, as the Govern
ment appropriation set aside a certain
sum for tho Philippine display and stated
that it should be housed in a Government
exhibit building. Communication was at
once opened with Washington, and all
day Friday and yesterday morning resi
dent Goode kept the wires between Port
land and the Capital hot with messages
Ultimately a decision was reached. The
Government announced that space would
be re-adjusted and that there would be
amnio room for the Philippine display in
the forestry wing of the G6vernment
buildings. Then President Goode wired
St. Louis and Washington to ship the
exhibit as soon as convenient, and the
corporation will pay the freight. Offl
cials of the Exposition arc at a loss to
account for this action on the part of
the Government and are inclined to look
UDon It as an attempt at holdup. 2ow
that the matter Is satisfactorily settled
Riid the exhibit assured, all Is serene and
the Centennial directors smile again.
NO CONSTABULARY COMING.
Insular Police of Philippines Will Not
OIIEGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Jan. 21. According to Colonel Ed-
-wards. Chief of the Bureau of Insular Af
fairs, there will be no Philippine Con
stabulary on duty at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition next Summer. A letter was
recently sent Colonel Edwards, asking
for information in regard to the detail,
and ho replied, saying:
"It Is very unlikely that any constab
ulary troops will be stationed at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition:, in fact. It
might bo stated definitely that such will
not be the case."
Asked today if his announcement was
authoritative. Colonel Edwards replied
that It was; that he had taken the matter
up with Secretary Taft before making the
ner of the amalgamation scheme sug
gested by'PreSlJeat Wheelwright at
the time of, and before, hlfl election as
president of the Chamber. The room
has been the headquarters or tne Port
land Board of Trade and Mr. Lee now
has his office thero. It Is not an
nounced that any changes have been
made In the organizations, but the
niacins of the two offices In the same
building and room leads to the belief
that such a plan Is being formed and
Is about to be put into operation.
The permanent exhibit of the Cham
ber of Commerce will be placed In the
large room provided by the new home.
Part of this exhibit is now at the of
fices of the Chamber in the Mohawk
building but the larger part is stored.
owing to lack of room at the present
In the new place there will be plenty
of room for an enlarged exhibit, and it
is said that the exhibit now being con
ducted by the Oregon Information Bu
reau at the Union Depot will be moved
to-the Chamber of Commerce, add will
be placed there permanently. If this
Is done it will add greatly to the ex
hibit of the Chamber of Commerce as
the collection of resources gathered by
Professor LeRoy and placed at the
depot is very complete and Is rapidly
growing larger than the rooms there
WILL POEM HEW TROUPE.
Edgar Baume and Miss Brandt to
Appear in Leading Roles.
A surprise was sprung in the theat
rical situation in Portland, last night.
when it was announced that a first-
class company headed by Edgar Baume
and Louise Brandt, under the manage
ment of Lincoln Hart, will open a two
weeks engagement at the Empire The
ater, commencing February 1, and "will
afterward open in Seattle. Tacoma and
Spokane, continuing Indefinitely on the
Pacific Northwest circuit.
As Portland playgoers well know.
Edgar Baume was leading man and
Louise Brandt ingenue at the Colum
bia Theater, and that Mr. Baume made
als farewell bow last night at the Co
lumbia. It was then supposed he was
to rest for a few weeks in California,
but Mr. Hart has Induced the popular
leading man to accept a new engage
ment In an unlooked-for quarter. Of
all the ingenues that ever acted in any
Portland theater, not one Is more pop
ular and Jias so many warm, personal
friends than Louise Brandt. Her abili
ties are much beyond those of the
average Ingenue, and these coupled
with fine stage presence, cultured In
telligence and finished enunciation
clearly show that she Is -destined to
rank high in the theatrical profession.
In the opinion of those well qualified
to judge, Miss Brandt will be In her
clement as leading lady.
Mr. Hart conferred with different
theatrical managers here and In other
cities, especially with Calvin Heiliff
and George L. Baker, and John Cort, of
Seattle, and arranged with them for
the- theaters In towns to be played
which arc controlled by tho theatrical
syndicate. These men are now allied
wita Mr. Hart in his new enterprise
to the effect that the entire Pacific
Northwest theatrical field, so far as all
attractions, excepting road companies,
are concerned, will be entirely con
trolled by Mr. Hart's new company.
The latter will, Jt is stated, be first
class in every respect, and with the
exception of Mr. Baume and Miss
Brandt, will consist of San Francisco
and Eastern people, who will be spe
dally selected for the tour. It is not
known yet what the opening bill at
the Empire will be, but Mr. Hart says
two excellent plays have already been
Tho enterprise Is noteworthy in this
respect that it will give Miss Brandt
the chance of her life and pave the
way to her becoming a. star. Mr.
Baume is already an actor of consider
able experience, and has many admir
ers both in this city and over a wide
stretch of territory.

"Let's sit down and talk. I am game

Then he talked about everything except
the stage, an unusual thing In an actor.
But he did talk about the vaudeville
shows and the effect they were having on
the legitimate drama, and while express
lng no opinion himself, said that Ben
Greet, the English actor who made a
thorough study of theatrical conditions
while here, was very much interested In
the vaudeville shows and expressed the
belief to Gould that they were elevating
rather than debasing to the public tasto;
that they taught the public to discern be
twecn good and bad acting and that in
time nothing but the good would survive
and the legitimate stage would have a
vogue on the Coast such as it has never
