Civic Improvement Board Is
at Work,
Rtv. Dr. Brougher Will Speak at the
White Temple Upon Making Port
land Beautiful and Attractive
to Everybody.
Dr. Brougher has sent his name to the
Civic Improvement Board of th city,
et&tlne that he and the members of the
"White Temple are ready to co-operate
Jn maklns the City of Portland the most
beautiful and attractive city on the Pa
cific Coast. Dr. Brougher believes that
every preacher and every church In the
city ought to h supremely Interested
in this movement, for It is pre-eminently
a moral aueetlon. If "Cleanliness is
next to godliness." 'then, says the doo
tor, "dirtiness must be next to devil
ishne&a." In order to arouse the mem
bers of his church and congregation, as
well as the boys and girls of the "White
Temple Bible school, with civic pride.
Dr. Brougher will preach a special ser
mon on the subject tonight. Ills topic
will be "Portland's House-Cleaning; In
side and Out." He belUvcs that Port
land ought to clean up, physically, polit
ically and morally, and will have some
characteristic things to say tonight on
the subject.
movement for civic improvement. At a
well-attended mass meeting Friday
evening the doctrine of a "city beau
tiful" was ably and clearly expounded
by Major T.'C. BelJ and others. Presi
dent B. M. Donaugh. president of the
local Board of Trade, presided. Miss
Giimore opened the programme with a
piano solo, after which Major Bell was
Introduced, who made a forcible plea
for cleaning up Sellwood and making
It the most attractive suburb of Port
land. His remarks were heartily In
dorsed. Mr. and Mrs. F. H. "Wall gave
a piano and violin duet and Mrs. Stone
gave two solos, all being heartily ap
plauded. Other remarks were made on
plans to remove all debris, and all the
citizens were urged to start work at
once. Vacant lots, covered with rub
bish, will be taken care of through
common effort, and lot owners are
urged to look to their own. premises.
Some money will be raised to- dispose
of rubbisb.In a few days fires will be
started and rapidly unsightly piles will
be consumed and tin cans will disap
pear from this suburb.
Sidewalks must be kept free from ob
structions. This is the order that has
gone forth from the Police Department,
and it expresses the sentiments of the
Civic Improvement Board. Merchandise,
rubbish, building materials, obsrtuctlons
of every kind, will not be tolerated.
Warrants were Issued yesterday for the
arrest of tbiee merchants, who, in spite
of the orders of the Police Department,
persisted In obstructing sidewalks with
merchandise. They were Jay Smith, su
perintendent at the Marshal-Wells
building, at Fourth and Oak streets; J. D.
llennessy, 193 Front street, and Cobn
Bros., of 1S2 Front street. It Is stated
tliat other arrests will follow If mer
chants do not obey the orders of the
Police Department. Chief of Police Hunt
is determined that the ordinance- govern
ing the obstruction of sidewalks be en
forced, and his officers have orders to reg
ister complaints immediately against all
who disobey the law in this particular.
Those arrested will have hearings In the
Municipal Court Monday morning.
Real and Effective Work.
The Civic Improvement Board of the
Chamber of Commerce is now settling
down to real and effective work, having
straightened out the greater part of the
detail incident to the commencement of
the great task. All of the various com
mittees which have been named to look
after the several phases of the work are
beginning to learn what Is desired of them,
and are doing their part systematically
and well.
The special officer given tho board by
the Police Department, who Is working
"under the directions of the general com
mittee In charge of tho work of civic im
provement, is busy answering and In
vestigating the various complaints which
hourly come into the office of the secre
tary. A transcript, or complaint sheet, 13
now being kept at the secretary's office,
Klmilar to the document kept by tho Cap
tain of Police at the City Jail, and upon
this are entered all complaints sent to the
office. The name of the complainant and
rf the offender, tho character of the com
plaint, tho -remedy desired and any other
rpmarks or directions necessary are all
catered on the docket, and from this the
special officer works. Yesterday the of
ficer was busy looking into several com
plaints which have come to tho office in
relation to unclean sidewalks and vacant
Sidewalks Must Be Clean.
It is the firm Intention of the Chamber
to see that the sidewalks of the city arc
kept In good condition, and that the order
of the Chief of Police to this effect is
backed by the influence of the Chamber
of Commerce, It Is the intention to see
that the walks are not only In a safe
condition, but that they are kept free from
debris and merchandise at all times. The
provisions against scattering paper, fruit
parings and other kinds of debris and filth
along tho curbs and on the walks will be
rigidly enforced. These ordinances, being
nmong the ones generally violated and at
the same time the easiest to observe, will
first claim tho attention of the Improve
ment Board.
The meeting of the women of tho city,
to be' held In the office of tho Chamber oa
Monday afternoon, promises to be one
of the strongest motives for civic bet
terment since the commencement of tho
improvement agitation. Already answers
are beginning to come to the secretary
from invitations sent out, pledging the
writers to the cause of civic Improve
ment in whatever way they may be used
bv the general committee. It Is expected
that tho woman's auxiliary will be one
of the potent factors of the campaign.
Housemovers Are Warned.
Especial efforts are being made in re
gard to the moving of houses and other
buildings, upon which there is so much
nttendant destruction of property. The
house-movers have become habitual de
stroyers of shade trees wherever they
"uork. and it is the intention of the
Board to p'lt a stop to the unnecessary
destruction of trees and shrubs. In order
to accomplish this object and at the
name time be just, the following notices
have been sent out to those engaged In
the huslness of house-moving In the city.
Dear Sirs: Tour attention Is hereby
called to the following extracts from the
c'ty ordinances as regards shade trees:
"Ordinance No. 13.8S6, Section 4 Before
niy trees, except cottonwoods and pop
lars, are removed from any of the streets,
boulevards or avenues of the city, appli
cation therefor shall be made to the City
Engineer, who. If he deem it advisable
that the same should be removed, will Is
sue a oermit In wrltlnc thT-ifi-
"It shall be unlawful for any person or
persons to hitch or fasten any animal
to or otherwise destroy or injure any
Kruwjag or living snaae or ornamental
tree, or any box or case around sueh tro

There has been general complaint of

What the Dutch East Indies Have
to Offer.
Wolf von Shierbrand, Ph. D., one of the
noted authors of America, who has writ
ten several books concerning the West
and Pacific Coast, is In Portland for a
few days. One of the most widely known
books of which he is the author is "Amer
ica, Asia and the Pacific" Another of
his works is "Russia, Her Strength and
Her Weakness" Mr. von Schlerbrand is
in Portland for the purpose of gathering
material for a series of articles which
will appear in the Pacific Monthly. Tho
articles, the first of which will appear in
the June number of the magazine," will
be practically devoted to the great North
west, "The people of the United States have
had thelr-attentlon attracted more to Cal
ifornia than to the Pacific Northwest,"
said Mr. von Schlerbrand at the Hotel
Portland last evening. "I have noticed
that most of the settlers In Oregon are
from the Middle West States. There are
very few Easterners. Those who live In
the Far East look on this section of the
country with distrust. Nothing but the
widespread publication of the resources
and possibilities will result In the introduc
tion of a larger proportion of Eastern
capital. The Lewis and Clark Exposition
will do wonders for Oregon as a medium
of publicity.
"From my observations I have come to
the conclusion that within 20 years this
Western country will have become as
thickly populated as the East The Coast.
States face the most populous countries In
the world, such as China, India, Japan
and the Dutch East Indies. Sooner or
later this" country will get the bulk of
the Oriental trade. The Nation so far
has overlooked the trade with the Dutch
East Indies, which is monopolized by the
Hollanders, although America is 2000 miles
"The foreign commerce of the Dutch
East Indies alone amounted to $300,000,000
last year. They are as densely populated
as India, and the land is far more fertile.
Famines are unknown; If this country
reaches out it will have no trouble in get
ting a large part of this trade."

The Finest Music Assured for Many
Lovely Homes.
In addition to their immense piano sales
the past week, Ellcrs Piano House
Pianola Department experienced a more
than usual activity.
Mr. H. M. Van Alstlne, of the well-
known firm of A. R. Morgan & Co.. pur
chased a very beautiful and costly Pianola
piano; Dr. E. De Witt Connell, one of
Portland s leading oculists, purchased a
Metrostyle Pianola; Mrs. L. B. Wade, of
5S0 Second street, selected an Aerlola.
Metrostyle Pianolas were shipped to
Messrs. J. J. Malone and R. B. Lehmann,
of Tacoma, and also one each to Messrs.
E. and A. F. Hofer. editors and proprie
tors of the Salem Journal, and to Mr.
E. K. Page, of the same city.
The value of a piano Is really doubled
by the possession of a Pianola. Whether
there Is a musician In the home or not
the Pianola can furnish a repertory that
even the most accomplished pianist cannot
hope to acquire by a lifetime of study.
The great pianist, Paderewsld. keeps him
self at all times prepared to play at a
moment s notice any composition. There
are over 12,000 compositions ready to be
played by means of the Pianola at a mo
ment s notice, and they may be played by
any one, whether they know a note of
music or not With the Metrostyle, which
is now a feature of ail Pianolas, perfect
interpretation Is assured, and the pleasure
of playing and understanding the finest
music Is extended to every person, with
out requiring any technical knowlerge
The enjoyment of the Pianola Is not lim
ited to the uneducated music lover, how
ever. The greatest pianists, singers, com
posers and orchestra leaders of the day
are unanimous in their indorsement of
this wonderful instrument David Bisp
ham, who sings in Portland March 9, has
this to say of It:
"The Pianola, beside giving me great
pleasure, has been of immense practical
use to me in studying certain operatic
roles, and I heartily congratulate you on
the wonderful strides you are making in
Improving the artistic character of this
most extraordinary Invention."
Ellers Piano House Is always glad to
show their instruments to anyone interested.
New York Pronounces
Just a "Grafter."
Young Man Who Sought to "Work"
the Charitable of Portland Re
ceives Small Comfort In the
Eastern Metropolis.
Leo L. Iioeb, "the hero of Manitou
who shed the shimmering rays of hli
benign and insinuating personality over
the Innocently sleeping City of Fort
land some months ago, has "came" to
New York City and has "went" his way
again, notwithstanding the admiring
plaudits of a sympathetic multitude, as
he desired, but with .the accompaniment
of such endearing and satisfying epi
thets as "grafter," "gold-brick artist"
"professional beggar" and other well
meaning and sad-sounding phrases.
Loeb was a nice boy with a pro
nounced limp and a vocabulary of
varied and picturesque profanity; with
a bold, bold black eye, a wonderful
adaptlveness for wierd and impossible
tales and a penchant for showing the
extraordinary development of his un
paralyzed left arm.
L&te one October night, last year,
an impressionable and highly excited
young man, at that time working for
the Scott Hotel, came breathlessly into
the office of The Oregonian and in
quired if "a good story would be of any
use." He was told that such a rare
thing oould be used to advantage, and
a man was dispatched to the hotel to
see the "Hero of Manltou." He found
a tall and twisted young man of
swarthy complexion who told wondrous
tales of having raced at the risk of his
life ahead of the raging waters of some
cloud-swollen stream, like Paul Revere
of old, to warn to safety seven thous
ands of human souls. But this was not
alL J. Ogden Armour had heard of his
heroism and had sent for him to be
treated by the world-famed Lorenz
during the latter's visit to Chicago.
The bloodless physician had skinned
the hapless cowboy, had Btretched his
legs and twisted his arms and scraped
the bones, afterward putting all back
in place again. At this time, so the
story-teller said, he was waiting for
Dr. Frederick Mueller, a disciple of Ix-
renz, who was, by the direction of Mr.
Armour, on his way to Portland to
perform a second and more severe op
eration upon the hero, who, by the
way, never took an anaesthetic to ease
his pain.
The reporter was sympathetic as
long as he was in sight of the swell
ing muscles of the unhampered arm;
then he became skeptical and even
facetious, and wrote accordingly. He
quoted the hero In his own words, told
of the wonders of his muscle and also
of his trunkful of "writeups," .and of
his desire to have the story "printed
on the first page with a big head."
The next afternoon an irate cyclone
swept vociferously into the -office, de
manding In awful tones to see the
guilty one. Only his language was
worse than that He was told that the
man of unkind words was out.
"Feel my muscle!" oemanded the
hero, sidling up to the pale young man
sitting at the desk. A gleam of appre
ciation came into the latter's eye as
he pinched tho swelling biceps.
"Feel mine?" ho asked, modestly. The
hero felt and his language ceased. Then
he faded from sight and from the .city.
Now New York City has him. Poor
hero. He is misunderstood. He wont
to the city, waving aloft his letter from
Mayor Schmltz, of San Francisco, and
he prospered. He was trying to reach
Vienna, where he would cast himself
at the merciful feet of Dr. Ixirenz. and
ho needed money. Then the Charity
Organization Society stepped In and
hunted up his record. It was proved
that Loeb was from Chicago, where all
of his ancestors had boen confidence
men and "grafters." Bo the sorrowful
hero slipped out of sight as quietly as
possible, and will do the one-night
stands, leaving the continuous thousand-night
places alone for a time, until
his feelings are healed once again.
