TIIE SUTAY OREGOXIAN, PORTLAND, JUNE 23, 1907.
LONDON', June 22. (Speclal.)-The
Thames Conservancy ha granted W. W.
Astor permission to place a chain across
the Thames for the purpose of working a
horse ferry between his property at
Cliveden and the Berkshire side for his
private use. Cliveden is one of the finest
mansions in England. Little more than
half a century ago the main portion of
the house was burned to the ground. A
vast pile in the style of an Italian villa
sprang out of the ashes. When the build,
lng was nearlng completion, Gladstone
was asked to compose a Latin Inscription
which could be erected in stucco right
round the main part of the house. This
was done, for the eminent English states
man was always a welcome visitor at
Cliveden. Garibaldi, among many other
illustrious guests, has been entertained at
this hospitable mansion.
American Ladies Come Out.
Mrs. Potter Palmer's first dinner of
the season was a great success. Thirty
six guests sat down at two different
tables, one of which was decorated with
pale pink roses and the other with deep
crimson. Among the company were Mrs.
Ronalds and Mrs. Ritchie, Mrs. Newhouse
and Mrs. Jaffray, while Captain and Lady
Lilian Boyd and William Walsh were also
Another debutante of this season is Miss
Violette Lockwood, the pretty daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lockwood, and
grand-daughter of Le Grand Lockwood,
who is so well known in New York so
ciety. Miss Kate Lee Harmen Is going about
under the wing of Lady Molesworth. It
may be remembered that Miss Harmen
caused quite a social stir in America when
she came out a couple of seasons ago. Her
wonderful Jewels are attracting much at
tention In London. Other notable new
comers are Miss Anita Stewart and Miss
Alice Anderson. Miss Stewart Is a daugh
ter of Mrs. J. Henry Smith and niece of
Mrs. Anthony Drexel. - These fair young
Americans are In great demand at all.
the dances they attend.
Play by Queen of Spain.
The young Queen of Spain, I am in
formed on very good authority, has writ
ten a one-act play in French, which is to
be acted this Summer by a group of
noble amateurs at the royal villa at
6an Sebastian. This royal playwright in
herits her literary gift from her own
mother. Princess Beatrice has always
been very fond of writing. She is now
engaged on a work dealing with the his
torical and picturesque associations of the
Isle of Wight, the charming Island in the
south of England which is so deservedly
popular with wealthy Americans.
Mrs. Mackay and her daughter, who are
in deep mourning for the former's mother,
the late Mrs. Hungerford, are remaining
abroad all the season. In consequence,
her house in Carlton House Terrace has
not .been opened, a matter of regret
among Americans in London.
More Slangy Than the 400.
Fashionable London, according to Mrs.
Borden Harriman, is more slangy than,
"the 400." This lady Is most eloquent in
defense of American manners, asserting
that the restlessness of the English so
ciety dame is not to be preferred to the
American woman's vivacity. These opin
ions have been stoutly maintained in more
than one English drawing-room.
American dishes seem to be very popu
lar just now in London. Special favo
rites are terrapin and canvasback ducks.
The idea of beginning a meal with fruit
has also caught on, and melon in slices
often appears as a prelude to dinner.
So-called vegetarianism grows apace,
but, oddly enough, vegetables are rarely
eaten. Smart folk feed on fruit, rice,
cheese, toast and macaroni. At dessert,
two large dishes of shelled nuts frequently
appear; and besides grapes, strawberries,
etc.. there are sure to be some foreign
fruits, such as persimmons, custard ap
ples, guavas from Madeira, and grape
fruit from Jamaica. Liquid cheese is an
other new dish invented by an American
hostess. It is served almost boiling hot
in a big brown bowl and eaten with toast.

PROHIBITION IS SHADED PRECINCTS. LIQUOR-SELLING Uf WHITE.
Eighteen precincts In Portland to the residence districts are "dry. They voted for prohibition In November, 1004;
June, 1905; June. 1006, and' June, 1007, under the local option law.
Two of the city precincts voted for prohibition November 0, 1904 precinct 63, Portsmouth, at that time number
68; and precinct 74, Montavilla, at that time number 66, annexed to the city, in the election of June, 1906. At that
time also Lents precinct, number 72, then number 64, voted for prohibition; likewise Powell's Valley .precinct, number 80,
then number 72. v
In the election June 5. 1905, six of the shaded precincts voted for prohibition precinct 41, then number 40; pre
cincts 61 and 62, then number 55; precinct 63, then number S6; precinct 64, then number 57, and precinct 70, South
Mount Tabor, then number 62, a part of which was annexed to the city in June, 1906. In that same election Wood-
stock precinct, number 71. outside the city, voted for proh'bltion.
In the election June 4, 1906, -ten city precincts vot;d for prohibition numbers 22, SO, 84, 45, 46, 47, 48, 60, 69 (Mount
Tabor) and 74, Montavilla, which In November, 1904, lso declared Itself for prohibition. In the 1906 election, precinct
90, West Portland, outside the city, voted for prohibition.
In the election June 8, 1907, three precincts voted for prohibition numbers 26, 43 and 41, the last of which voted
the same way in 1905.
It therefore appears that no precinct, once voting for prohibition, has returned to liquor-selling and that two pre
cincts numbers 74 and 41 have voted for prohibition twice.
These data are taken from the official records of the County Clerk, having been prepared by Deputy Clerk Her
man G. Schneider.

Kingly displeasure not long ago fell
on a West End Club. His Majesty pro
posed for membership a well-known
American millionaire, for whom he has
a great admiration. But on certain "old
fogey" grounds a section of the members
were violently opposed to this admission.
The opposition persisted and the King's
candidate was blackballed! King Edward
and all his friends resigned en bloc, and
it may safely be said that the club will
never recover its consequent loss of
Apparently the fashion of young mar
ried couples taking joint houses is on
the .increase. The latest Instance is
Lord and Lady Ingestre (nee Mis Wini

Lady Beatrice Herbert, have taken a
small place at Dacbet for the Summer.
The two ladies are sisters and their hus
bands are brother officers In the Blues,
and have always been great friends.
There is, of course, plenty of precedent
for sharing bouses, as "pay parties" of

While Mrs. James McDonald's London
home In Cadogan Square was being re
decorated, she and her husband, who
lately retired from the Standard Oil Com
pany, stayed at Claridge's. James Mc
Donald 1b resting from his onerous la
bors and living by doctors' rules, for
his ill health Is causing a good deal of
anxiety. On this account Mrs. McDon

the disappointment of a large circle of
friends, who admire, and perhaps envy,
her bright and engaging manner.
Superstition of Bridge-Players.
The Peter Martins have been staying at
Sunderland House on a visit to the
Duchess of Marlborough, who is now in
mourning for her aunt. Miss Armlde
Smith. Miss Smith belonged to one of
the oldest families in America the Mur
ray Smiths of Mobile. The Duke of Marl
borough has been out under canvas with
his regiment of Imperial Yeoman dry
(the Yorkshire Hussars) in which he
holds., the rank of senior major. Four
members of the Marlborough family hold
commissions in this regiment.
Superstition is more rife today in Eng
lish society than It ever was. There
are, for instance, many women who never
think of playing a bridge rubber without
the protection and guidance of a "lucky
piece." One woman pins her faith to a
little silver elephant, and a bright girl
confided to me that ' she never played
without the assistance of a tiny silver
boar. "Why, I've had the most aston
ishing luck," she said, "by carrying him
with me, and now I feel that I simply
could not deal the cards, and certainly
I could not play, unless I could give him
three gentle little pats before his hand."
Gold and jewelled and fancy charms are
best liked by women, and the more odd
they are the better.
Mot of the dress materials this sea
son seem to be in stripes not in two
colors, but in two tones of one color.
They are about an eighth of an inch in
width, and sometimes the edges of the
darker color are herring-boned. Among
the best of these materials is a - two
toned blue with gray in it, which is with
out a trace of that cold electric blue that
Is rarely becoming. It is not inartistio
when a deep sapphire blue stripe Is com

the other more of a coffee tint.
