Break Off Acquaintance.
PARIS. Dec 14. (Special.) Walter
i brother of H. de Miimm, member of
i family of wine merchants, and him
self reputed wealthy, a noted aviator
and a racehorse owner, was the victim
of a tragedy on Thursday, the follow
ing version of which la given In yes
"A little mora than a year ago Wal
ter de Mumm made the acquaintance
of Mrs. Barnes;- an American woman,
who was divorced a short time ago.
and is said to possess a considerable
"Mrs. Barnes toojt a luxurious apart
ment at 48 Rue des Belles Feullles in
Paris. The. couple led a happy life,
dividing; their pleasures among: the
race course, the theaters and fetes and
soirees. A short time ago a difference
arose between them and for purely per
sonal reasons M. . Mumm proposed
to Mrs. Barnes that they should mu
tually regain their, liberty. .
Both Ballets Iafllc 'Wooads.
"On Thursday morning last, after
having passed the night at Mrs. Barnes
apartments. M. Mumm again an
nounced his Intention of breaking off
their acquaintance. White with anger,
the young woman drew a revolver and
pointed It at her friend. Two shots
were fired. Both bullets struck M.
Mumm. while Mrs. Barnes was
seized with hysterics. M. Mumm.
despite his wounds, walked out of the
house without assistance, hailed a taxi
cab and drove to a private hospital at
Neuilly, where his Injuries were at
tended. "M. Mumm. whose injuries are
rather serious, described the tragedy
to his brother, but declared he would
not lodge any Information with the po
lice. M. H. DeMumm. nevertheless,
called yesterday at the detective de
partment and asked that Mr. Barnes
be expelled from the country. The Ju
dicial authorities thereupon decided to
open an Inquiry.
"However, Mrs.' Barnes already has
left Paris, having taken the first train
yesterday morning for London. The
examining magistrate has Issued a
warrant for Mrs. Barnes' arrest,! but
unless Walter DeMumm's condi
tion becomes more serious her extradi
tion will not be asked.
"Walter DeMumm and his rela
tives consider that fear of arrest will
prevent Mrs. Barnes from returning to
France, which is the only punishment
they desire to Inflict on her."
The Petit Parisien In its version
of the shooting says that his assailant
took a sumptuous apartment In the
Rsgldes Belles Feullles In the Passy
quarter early this year.
Womaa Entertalas Exteaslvely.
She was young and attractive and
provided with good introductions soon
began to entertain extensively. Among
her most frequent visitors, according
to the newspaper, was Walter Mumm.
"Last night." says the Petit Parisien,
"while M. Mumm was calling on the
woman a hot dispute was begun, and
his hostess, losing control of herself,
seized a revolver and fired twice, the
bullets striking him In the eplgastrum
and the right lung.
Desperately frightened by the con
sequences of her act, the woman hastily
sent for a doctor, and for M. Mumm'a
brother, who ordered the removal of
the wounded man to a private hospital
Authorities Are I'ndeclded.
"Kxamining Magistrate Boucard was
instructed to open an inquiry. That
official went to the hospital to take M.
Mumm's deposition, but the judicial
authorities have not yet decided what
course they will take.
"The story of the shooting leaked out
through M. Mumm's trainer cancelling
the engagements for M. Mumm's horses
at the Auteil races Friday afternoon.
The explanation given was that M.
Mumm had been injured in an automo
bile accident. The truth soon became
known and the affair thereafter was
the absorbing topic in clubs and
CHURCH MORTGAGE BURNS
First United Presbyterian Hold For
With the final flicker tremulously
clinging to a charred corner, the last
trace of the remaining ' mortgage on
the First United Presbyterian Church
fluttered slowly to the floor, amid the
rejoicings of the assembly and with a
ritual almost as solemn as that of the
ancien- Druids. Three out of four of
the surviving charter members acted as
Miss Laura Tate. . Mrs. Elisabeth
Dalgleish and W. A. Currie were the
three. Dr. J. T. Tate, the only other
rharter member, was prevented from
being, present through illness. After
an evening of music and social pleas
antries, speeches were made by Rev.
Frank D. Findley, the pastor, by David
Patttillo and C. C Trip.
Then came the event of the evening.
On a tray was brought in the mortgage
notes amounting to $5000. The three
rharter members each took a match,
and with a stleiree 'almost "breathless,
lit a corner of the paper. As It burned
one after the other recited a short
verse expressive of hope for and suc
cess in the future of the church.
. Bachelors May Be Taxed. .
BKRI.1X. Pec. 14. (Special.) Prus
sia's long-threatened project to tax
bachelors is now before the Diet. It
is proposed to put an income surtax
of from 1 to 20 pel- cent on all un
married men whose incomes exceed
$7.0 per annum. The scheme has the
backing of the Conservatives and Is
likoly to become law. - Its promoters
say tliat the Insidious growth of the
habit of remaininr single among Ger
man men requires to be checked, and
that the time has come to confer spe-'
rial privileges on those willing to as
sume the obligations of matrimony
White Crows and Ivangs Win.
Bntli losers in the bowling of the
I'onimen lal League Friday night at the
Saratoga Alleys were defeated by three
Barnes. The White Crows took their
matches from the City Hall five, while
the Lang' A Co. smashers took all their
games with ease from the Dooly Co.
quintet. The first two games in the
White Crow-City Hall contest werg easy
ones for the Crows, both being won by
more than 100 points.
Keller, of the White Crows, was the
high man, and also bad the high aver
age. The first was 202, while the aver
age was 186. The 200 score which Kel
ler made was the only one of the night,
a decided contrast to the record break
ing of the night before. The scores:

The members of the February. '13,
graduating class of Washington High
School presented a comedy entitled
"Thirteen Thousand Dollars" at the
High School Friday night.
The students had been coached for
several months by William Bernard, of
the Baker Theater Stock Company, and
the audience composed principally of
the students from the three high
schools helped everyone have a. good
The play itself furnished an eve
ning of laughter. It Is the story of
a family "squabble" involving a will.
Harvey Barton, otherwise Fred Mc
Kecknie. was the villain. There was a
pretty niece, whose part was taken by
Margaret Elisabeth Burchard. She is
made the heir to $13,000 on the condi
tion that she marry the villain, al
though she loves Bud Wheeler.
Through the work of Barton, Bud falls
under the suspicion of the theft of the
girl's money, but Dora believes in him
Miss Dorothy Brownell, in the role
of Jerusha Jane Elvlrah Ann Boggs, an
orphan, is resoued from the poorhouse
by Bud's mother. She sees Barton
steal the money and in turn steals it
from him. Just when matters look
blackest for Bud she gets the roll of
bills and makes the family and Bud

with credit. Fred White as Eli

days when melodrama held its sway.
Dorothy Brownell was also very good.
Elisabeth Wirt, as Eli's wife, was
pleasing. Sidney R. Murphy and Doug

and Luclle Danford as a "colored
mammy" Injected a lot of laughter into
the situations. '

KAISER AT DAM OPENING
Emperor WllHam Views' Masonry
Work at Mauer.
BERLIN, Dec. T. (Special.) The
new dam built at Mauer, about eight
miles below Hirschberg, in Prussian
Silesia, across the valley of the Bober,
a tributary of the Oder, of which the
foundation stone was laid in 1908, has
been formally opened in the presence of
Emperor William. A short speech was
made by the Duke of Ratlbor, who re
called the disastrous floods of 1897 and
His Majesty's advice to build a dam.
The dam Is built to- hold back 50.000,
000 cubic meters of water and is the
largest in Germany. It is 280 meters
long, 60 meters high, 50.3 meters thick
at the base and 7.2 meters thick at the
top. The cost of construction was more
than Jl.300.000, and the cost of land
was about 1800.000. The Prussian treas
ury bears four-fifths of the cost. A
power station built close by at a cost
of 25,000 will supply a wide district
in Lower Silesia.

the direct successor, , who has been
critically ill for the last few days, died
Saturday morning at his home. Four
teenth and Main streets. He was 89
years old on Thursday.
The Kamm estate in Portland and
in' San Francisco Is worth, at various
estimations, from $2,500,000 to $4,000,
000. His principal holdings in 'Portland
are his home site at Fourteenth and

holder of the First National Bank of
Astoria and a director and a heavy
stockholder in the First National Bank
of Portland. '
Bualnesa Directed to Laat.
His San Francisco property consists
of two pieces on opposite sides of
Market street in the heart of the
business district, and worth in the
aggregate approximately $1,000,000.
.Although Mr. Kamm has been an In
valid as a result of an accident five
years ago, - he continued in active
direction of his extensive business in
terests until stricken with his final- ill
ness on December 1. He received daily
reports from his associates and regu
larly gave advice regarding the man
agement of his various properties.
In his declining years Mr. Ivamm naa
the pleasure and comfort of the con
stant companionship of his faithful
ife, who with four grandchildren and
daughter-in-law, the widow of his
only son, the late Charles Tilton Kamm,
Married Half Century Ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Kamm were married
In Portland more than 50 years ago.
She Is a daughter of W. H. Gray., who
came to the Northwest with Dr. Marcus
Whitman, the celebrated missionary.
Mrs. Kamra's brother. Captain James
Gray, is with her at the bedside of
Mr. Kamm. The first home occupied
by -Mr. and Mrs. Kamm at Third and
Yamhill streets now serves as the of
fice of the Vancouver Transportation
Mr. Kamm was long an active memoer
and a trustee of the First Presbyterian
Church, and for many years was presi
dent of the board of trustees. He was
thirty-second degree Mason and one
of the oldest members of the order In
the state, having been made a Mason
at St. Louis when bnt 21 years of age.
When he came to Oregon he affiliated
with Multnomah Lodge atfcOregon City,
but a few years ago was dimmed to
Willamette Lodge in Portland. He was
also a Knight Templar and a Shriner.
It Is understood that he recently con
tributed $10,000 to the Albany College
endowment fund now being raised, and
that he was the largest individual giv
er to the fund for the. erection of the
new parish-house at the First Presby
In recognition of the fact that he
was probably the oldest man in the
United States actively engaged in the
transportation business, the Portland
Transportation Club presented him
with a life membership on his stn
birthday anniversary on Thursday.
Birth, December 12, 1S23.
Mr. Kamm was born in Switzerland
December 12, 1823, and came to Amer
ica when 8 years of age. He learned
the trade of an engineer on the Mis
sissippi River at St. Louis and on Sep
tember 8, 1848, received nis ceruiicaie
as chief engineer from the St. Louis
Association of Steamboat Engineers.
As he was only 25 years old at that
rtime he was justifiably proud of this
document and counted It among his
most prized possessions. He kept, the
certificate framed at his home.
In 1849 Mr. Kamm joined the rush
of gold seekers to California. Soon
after arriving there he ran. a little
steamer the Blackhawk on the Sac
ramento River. The following year
Lot- Whitcomb brought him to Oregon
to place the machinery in a vessel then
building on the Willamette. After com
pleting the work Mr. Kamm remained
and became engineer of the boat. W.
H. H. Hall was pilot In those early days
and the late J. C. Ainsworth was cap
tain. It was In this way that Mr. Kamm
and Mr. Ainsworth became acquainted.
They later became partners.
As Steamship Man Beat Known.
Mr. Kamm was best known through
out Oregon as the pioneer steamship
man of the state. It was the steamer
Carrie Ladd so named after the wife
of W. S. Ladd that formed the nucleus
of the business of which the O.-W. R. &
N. Co. is the direct successor, but the
Carrie Ladd herself was owned by a
complicated partnership in which Mr.
Kamm figured prominently. Mr. Kamm
owned one-fourth direct interest in the
Carrie Ladd, the late J. C. Ainsworth
owned one-fourth, Abernethy A Clark

Pioneer Days Recollected.
"Tt used to keen one of us busy to
divide the money in the proper propor
tions," said . Mr. Kamm, recently,
in speaking of those pioneer days.
vl'a fliwavi fifirured 'our divi
dends down to the last'' cent, and in the
case of tne carrie ta wo tis4ucuij

The Carrie Ladd made her initial trip
on February 8. 1859. It was intended
that she should operate Between run
ani rip.trAn f'i t v The Jennie

betwen those points, ana as me uunc

. i hneinMs nn the two other boats
almost was demoralized.
Then the Carrie Laaa was put m
service betwen Portland and Caacade
Locks, in competition with Ben Stark's
line of steamers. The business grew
so rapidly that a more systematic
handling of it had to. be devised, and
in 1860 the Union Transportation Com
pany - was organized, controlling all
..Asmara hafn'iin Tnrtlnfiri nnd the C&6'
cades, including the Carrie Ladd, the
Senorita; owned by Benjamin Stark and
others, and the Mountain Buck, owned
by Colonel Buckle and others.
Navigation Company Formed.
At that time Dan Bradford and his
associates owned and operated the
Hassalo and the Mary, both side wheel
ers, between Upper Cascades and The
Dalles. R. K. Thompson and Lawrence
Coe owned the steamer Colonel Wright
and ran her between Celilo and Lewis
ton. The steamers of these various
routes were merged later on and
formed the Oregon Steam Navigation
Company, forming a continuous line
between Portland and Lewiston. Mr.
Kamm was appointed chief engineer of
the entire line and continued in that
capacity until 1865, when he resigned.
In 1862 Mr. Kamm helped to build
the Celilo Portage, between The Dalles
and Celilo. This was the firs.t railroad
in Oregon. i
The Oregon Steam Navigation Com
pany was. the financial wonder of its
day and age. In a very few years the
fleet of small and insignificant steam
ers swelled in proportions and extended
the scope of its operations up and
down the river and into Puget Sound.
At the time Mr. Kamm resigned his
position ha was one of the heaviest
shareholders of the company. Mr.
Ainsworth acquired most of his stock.
With the proceeds of this sale Mr.
Kamm invested heavily in Portland
real estate. He bought the Kamm
homesita about this time. It consisted
originally of 13 acres and he paid
about $500 an acre for It. which was
considered a blK price at that time.
Streets have been cut through the
property since then and only aoout 11
acres are left. The Gipsy Smith Audi
torium is built on part of it
-i Mind Clear Is Old As.
In June, 187, the Oregon Railroad
& Navigation Company, capitalized at
16,000,000 succeeded the Oregon Steam
Navigation Company. H. W. Corbett,
C. H. Lewis. J. N. Dolph. Paul Scbulze
and H. Thielsen were among the prin
cipal shareholders. The fleets of the
Willamette Transportation and Locks
Company and of the People's Transpor.
tation Company were, taken over by the
new conoern. Two years later the
company bought the Starr line of
steamers on Puget Sound. After the
railroad was completed between Port
land and Huntington the company de
voted most of Its attention to rail
transportation and the navigation end
of the business gradually was dimin
ished until now it forms a compara
tively unimportant feature.
Two years ago the Oregon Railroad
& Navigation Company was succeeded
by the Oregon-Washington Railroad &
Navigation Company, and although Mr.
Kamm had no direct Interest in the
new corporation he had watched with
much concern the development of the
business which he was Instrumental In
founding. . .
Until his final illness his mind was
&Iert and active and It used to give
bim great pleasure to talk with hta
friends of the incidents of his youth.
He could refer with almost startling
accuracy to dates, names and Incidents
of those early periods.

ON PLATE WORK
'This One Thing I Do"
A specialist on artificial teeth
cot only must possess mechanical
skill enough to construct a plate
with perfect adaptation to the
mouth, but he must also possess
artistic ability of a high degree.
The ideal toward which we are
always working, is to restore and
maintain the natural expressiops
and lines of the face and mouth
and endeavor to imitate Nature as
near as is possible to do.
, .Great care must be taken iu
choosing the color and arrangement
of the teeth to lessen that false
tombstone effect so often noticed
in artificial teeth.
No other phase of dental prac
tice is so greatly misjudged and
underestimated as plate work. It
is looked upon by the general prac
titioner as a labor which does not
require either great skill or close
Only too often is it committed to
unskilled hands or discharged with
a minimum attention by men who
willingly bestow any amount of toil
on other departments of practice.
This underestimation results whol
ly from lack of proper knowledge
concerning the requirements for
and possibilities of plate work.
