Commander of Salvation Army
Arrives jn Portland.
For the First Time Outside New
York ,City She "miPTlajr the .
-Harp at the Meetlngs'ln.
the Marquam. L
Evangeline Booth, commander of the
Salvation Army forces In the United
States, Is in Portland for the" first time,
having- arrived yesterday jnornlpg.
Commander Booth,, who Jias-begn suf?
ferlng ill-health as a result of over
zealousness in promoting the work ot
tUe Salvation Army, spent nearly all
of yesterday in Test and quiet In her
rooms at the Hotel Portland.
The commander is the idol ot the
people she iias so faithfully served tmd
worked for. slnce fresh girlhood. Her
wonderful and wholesome .enthusiasm,
which she considers one of the most
valuable and precious of her assets, -is
the mnrvel of her friends and ad
mirers, as it . never diminishes hut
peems to increase as day by day- she
meets and invigorates and. cheers the
thousands of Army workers she meets
each year. t
Commander Booth is delighted with
Portland, as much' as she lias seen of
it, and says she likes the city and
people so well that she has decided to
play her harp at two meetings to be
held at the Marquam Grand Theater
today, at 3 P. M. and 8 P. M. She has
not played the harp for two years,
and New Tork Is the only city in .the
I'nited States in which she has ever
appeared in public with it. She is a
harpist of reputation and skill, and the
New Tork critics have always highly
praised her playing. She says It is
her favorite musical instrument,- -be
cause of its unusual sweetness of ex-H
"We havp been so successful in the
"Western states lately." said the com
mander yesterday, her eyes alight as
she spoke of the work to which she
has devoted her life. "The "Western
people are so warm-hearted' and cour
teous that our work is -progressing in
great bounds. The' progress we have
made is really wonderful. They are
easily reached and are only too will
ing to follow the right path provided
they are given the opportunity. This
spirit prevails even with the very
lowest classes.
"The Eastern people are as vigorous
In the work after they are once inter
ested, but It Is much harder to obtain
their attention. I feel just as though
I were at home when I am In the WiesU
The people are all so nice and kind to
me that I could not help loving them.
"I will never forget the meeting in
JCansas City on my way to Portland.
nt which I .addressed an audience ot
17,000 people in the Convention Hall.
The audience was so interested and
quiet that every word I spoke could be
heard distinctly Jn allparts of the
hall. I had been under the care of the
physicians for days, and they forbade
roe to appear in public but when I
heard of the Immense throng of people
that awaited my appearance I attend
ed, although I was threatened with a
serious illness. From Portland I go
to Seattle, and then to San Francisco
and Los Angeles."
At the afternoon meeting today at
the Marquam Grand Theater Com-J
mander Booth will speak on "The
Grand March Past," and her topic at
the night meeting will be "Thou Re
malnest." Lieutenant-Colonel Miles,
who accompanies her, will address the
service tomorrow at 10:30 A. M. at -the

It was announced ome "time ag that

capitalized at about $5,690,000, and It is

The Portland Consolidated property is
now more valuable than It was at .the
time the consolidation was .made isome
months ago, owing to the 'continuous im

miles of new track with heavy steel

On the other hand, the purchase would
prove a good investment at this time
especially, owing to the Lewis and Clark
Fair. The cars of the company are now
running crowded most of the time, and
that with only the normal traffic pt the

Chronicle today says: A .scheme which
has been In operation in the Tax Col
lector's office for many months has
Just been uncovered by which nearly
$1,500,030 worth of property has been
secured for little, more than $100,000.
The victims are the city's taxpayers,
who are wrongly charged, in some in
stances, it- appears, with delinquencies.
The profits have gone to a. ring of tax
scalpers, who were -assfctcd in every
possible way by the alleged defaulting
Tax Collector Smith and his subordi

nipulated to keep the truth .from com

had their homes placed- in Jeopardy
without so- much ns knowing that a

A thorough investigation will be
made at once Into the matter, to de

Market Street Property Soars
James D. Phelan, to Acquired Solid Block of San
Francisco Property, Forced toP.ay $9,000 a Front Foot.
SAN FRANCISCO. May 17. A new
record was made'in-San Francisco
real estate when James D. lhelan
this week purchased a piece of property
on Market street, for which he paid at
the rate of $9000 a front foot. This is
easily the highest price ever paid for
local property. The piece purchased
adjoins the Phelan building and gives
its new owner possession of the 'entire
frontage on the block. Tho total sale
was made for $715,000, the seller bal
ing the "William Ede estate. Thjs same
land was purchased by "William Ede IS
years ago for $118,000. It is understood
that a skyscraper will be erected by
Phelan. The Bank of California is soon
to erect a new structure to reach 16
stories. It will occupy the present site
of the Bank at California arfd Saneome
streets. The lower floor will bb used
by the bank and above will be offices.
The Hotel St. Francis has begun the
erection of a new wing, which will
nearly double the size of the hotel.
"While the building boom has been
continuing unabated, the enthusiastic
have looked about and put forth
claims that San Francisco's p6pulation
has reached half a million. Thls. is an
exaggeration by upward of '53,030. The
approved methods ot estimating popu
lation show between 42C.030 and 60,
000 for the city and 1,650,000 for the
state. j
The impetus given municipal owner
ship by the decision of the San Francisco
Supervisors to take over .the Geary street
car line has extended throughout the
state. In the interior towns the cry has
gone up for city water-works and light
ing plants. Ventura this, week has voted
for both. In Stockton the question " came
up and the campaign was closely followed
by the San Francisco press. The result
was a decisive victory for neither faction
and it may result in a deadlock. The
Republicans, who opposed "municipal
ownership, elected the Mayor and one
Councilman. The Democrats on a plat
form calling for city ownership, elected
seven Councllnfcn.
Florence Roberts, the well-known
actress has returned to Safi Francisco
after an extended tour, which included
not only the cities of the Pacific Coast,
but which reached as far as the Missis
sippi River. "Heretofore Miss Roberts has
not ventured further east than Salt Xak.a,
but as aa experiment this year she visited
Denver. Kansas City and other large
cities e the Middle West. The result
was most gratifying to Miss Roberts. She .
was well received and drew large fcmi3es
almost without exception. Mtes 'Kdfe'erts,
who is a San Francisco, girl, is a "great
favorite here,. where the critics compare
her to Mrs. Fieke.
It is, of course, the ambition f Mies
Roberts to earn a place on BraAdway. She

there may be about her before checking

The greatness of heart of Mrs. Jane I
Stanford rwas never better illustrated than
In a letter written by her a few days be
fore her death and read this week at the
laying of the corner-stone for the new
library building at the university. In this
letter Mrs. Stanford outlined her cher
ished hopes for the institution and her
ideas of its true aims. In concluding, she
announced that she had set aside all her
Jewels to be devoted to a specfal fund, to
be called the Jewel fund for the purpose
of purchasing..books for the library- The
announcement came as a great surprise,
for it was generally believed that the
heavy demands made upon the Stanford
estate had caused her to sacrifice her
gems long ago. It appears, however, that
but a small portion was sold at the time
the memorial -church was being erected.
Mrs. Stanford at that time needed ready
funds to complete the great structure, and
Tmrted with some of her diamonds. ItJa
stated that the sale of those remaining
will provide a fund which will yield an
annual Income of-almost $50,000. This sum
will b uaed every year Bolely for books.
Stanford University, it is predicted, will
soon" have one of the finest libraries in the
world. In her letter Mrs. Stanford far
ther expressed the hope that the stu
dents would take an Increased interest in
the church and its affairs.
The San Jose Normal School has re
ceived applications from a score ot stu
dents from Oregon tor admission to. the
Summer school course. Last year there
was a total attendance ot -SCO, but at this
year's Summer session there will be 590.
An Innovation will be classes for -chll
dren throughout the Summer. This will
afford practice for the normal students
and at the same tine afford an opeertu
nlty for backward or ambitious children
to make further progress.

The three workers sent-.aut the first of
the week. by. .the excursion bureau of the
Exposition are meetlngwith great success
in their endeavors to arrange for excur
sions to be run to the Fair during the
Summer months.
Already it has been arranged that a

the Commission to take other steps look-

to the. visitors at the Exposition grounds-
Banners and badges have also been ar
ranged for, and altogether it is anticipated
by the Fruit City that their day win be
the best and .most unique in the list ot
all special days.
It is thought that 2600 people will come
to Portland from Corvallis on the day
;set apaft for that city, while all of the,
towns along the West Side are making
preparations to come - en- masse on; the
dates set apartfor them. In most of
