dent, and iliss Anna A. Gordon, of Chi
cago. 111., vice-presldent-at-large, arrived
here last night on their way from Cali
fornia. They were seen later in their
parlors at the Hobart Curtis, and one Is
Immediately Impressed by their earnest-'
ness, zeal and ability to discuss public
questions. Mrs. Stevens is a Maine woman,
Is enthusiastic when she speaks of pro
hibition in her native state, and has been
president of the National W. C. T. U.
since 189". Miss Gordon's specialty Is
Loy&l Temperance Legion work among
children, and she is widely esteemed as
the late Miss Willard's secretary.
"We are to assist In the opening of a
national W. C. T. U. conference in this
city, because, I presume, we are officers
of the National organisation." said Mrs.
Stevens. "Of course, the National W. C
T. U. convention, in which the whole
country is Interested, opens at Los An
geles. Cal., October 27, and lasts one
week. This Portland conference has no
authority delegated similar to that en
Joyed by. the National organization. We
are here to confer regarding temperance
work, as to our coming National conven
tion, and to hear reports concerning tne
"VV. C. T. U. exhibit at the Lewis and
Clark Exposition. The latter will fully
illustrate our methods of work by means
of literature, photographs, object lessons,
etc. Scientific temperance instruction will
also be remembered."
"What Is your position in regard .to the
"Anti-canteen.", aulckly replied the
president of the National W. C. T. U.
"We will not recede from the position we
have already taken in that direction, be
cause we believe canteens worked un
speakable harm to our soldiers. It placed
them amid temptation. Let army offi
cers object to what has been accom
plished by law In this matter but are
army officers who drink liquor competent,
judges? Why should mothers not be
more competent than they, women who
have had real experience in training
their sons? Give the anti-canteen law a
fair trial before condemning it, and watch
results. About prohibition In Maine?
Well, prohibition does prohibit, just as
much as the law against stealing deters
those who would steal. Maine is prosper
ous under prohibition, and we have more
money in our banks than states possess
ing great population. We don't spend our
money on the saloon, but we deposit It
in banks. This Portland of yours is a
beautiful city from the scenic point of
view, but it would he more beautiful still,
-were there no liquor saloons in It. Be
fore I left home I entertained a woman
friend from Chicago, and after driving
her about my Portland, she said: I envy
you your town. I'm a mother, and on
thinking about my boys I wish we lived
here where there are no saloons, and
where we don't see drunkards. I live, as
you know. In Chicago.' Yes, it is possible
to prosper under prohibition."
Then Mrs. Stevens and Miss Gordon
Chatted" about a variety of topics. Ad
dresses will be given at 3:30 o'clock this
afternoon at the White Temple by Mrs.
Stevens and Miss Gordon, and this evening-
at 7:45 o'clock they will speak at Taylor-Street
Methodist Episcopal Church.
They leave late tomorrow evening for
Seattle and other points.
"Well, Harry," said Collins, "that is
just the truth of the matter we've got
to use the streets or quit."
The reference to Judge Hogue as
"Harry" caused a laugh in the court
room, in which event the court indulged.
"How would it do for you to engage a
lawyer and ascertain what is legal for
you to do, and what is not?" asked Judge
Hogue" of Collins. "I think that would
save you considerable trouble."
This was. done and the case continued
until next Friday.
Policeman Phillips stated that when he
went to notify Collins, the latter roundly
abused him, asking him how much taxes
he paid and how much property he owned.
The police contend Collins offense Is an
aggravated one; that his firm has always
been" antagonistic to civic Improvement,
and has repeatedly violated the laws.

Scalping of theater tickets Is under the

nicipal Judge Hogue. delivered during
yesterday's session of the court, when the
cases of Fred and Sam Goldberg and
Abe Levltch were decided.
The Goldberg boys, charged with
"scalping," came into court yesterday and
entered a plea of guilty, through A. Wal
ter Wolfe, their counsel. They were re
leased upon their promise never to re
peat what occurred during a scramble for
seats at the Marquam Grand, when "The
Red Feather" was selling. A fight en
sued, which landed the Goldbergs, Le
vltch and Sam and Harry Llppmann as
prisoners before Judge Hogue.
The Llppmann boys failed to return to
court one week ago yesterday, as they
were ordered to do. and when they ap
peared before Judge Hogue this time they
faced charges themselves ef selling tickets
without a license. When questioned by
Deputy City Attorney Fitzgerald, they

Zui locked up his establishment and
went Into the barber-shop adjoining
for a shave. He was gone about an
hour. When he returned the door of
his shop was locked as usual, but upon
the inside thero was a scene- of con

which contained the diamonds " were
open and jewelry of lesser value was
scattered about the floor. On the floor
near the door there were found two
diamond rings worth about $500 each,
evidently dropped by the thieves In
their haste to escape. The police were
immediately notified, and Detectives

Zui In speaking- of the robbery. "I did
