MRS. G. H LEWIS IS
DEAD AT 75 YEARS
Three Sisters and Ten Children
Survive Pioneer Who Arrived
in Oregon in 1852.
FAMILIES HISTORY MAKERS
Marriage of Clementine freeman
Couc-h and Cicero Hunt Lewis
Solemnized in State's First
Episcopal Church in 1857.
After an illness of three months,
Mrs. Cicero Hunt Lewis, widow of the
founder of the wholesale grocery
firm of Allen & Lewis, died shortly
before 2 P. M. yesterday at the family
liorae. Nineteenth and Glisan streets.
She was nearly 76 years old, having
"been born in Newburyport, Mass., Oc
tober 14, 1838.
The funeral arrangements will not
be made until today; but it was an
nounced last night that the services
will be held from Trinity Episcopal
Church. Nineteenth and Everett streets,
of which Mrs. Lewis was an active
member for many years.
Mrs. Lewis is survived by three sis
ters. Mrs. Caroline E. . Wilson. Mrs.
Elizabeth R. Glisan, of Portland, and
Miss Mary H. Couch, who is now trav
eling abroad, and by 11 children, ten
of whom are residents of Portland.
Her sons are L Allen Lewis, presi
dent of Allen & Lewis; John C. Lewis,
Robert W. Lewis, David C. Lewis and
C. Hunt Lewis. Her daughters are
Mrs. J. E. Bingham. Mrs. George
Good, Mrs. A. Li Mills, Mrs. Sherman
R. Hall and Miss Sarah H. Lewis, all
of Portland, and Mrs. Henry P. Fair
banks, of New York City.
Panama Route Taken.
As Miss Clementine Freeman Couch,
daughter of Captain John H. Couch, a
prominent pioneer, Mrs. Lewis came
to Oregon in 1852 by .way of the Isth
mus of Panama. They took a train
part of the distance across the isth
mus, crossing the Chagres River in a
boat. In striking contrast to the present-day
method, they climbed over the
mountains where Culebra Cut is now
located by muleback.
Portland was a primitive town of
only 1000 persons when they arrived
here. There were then but two streets,
the forest extending down to what is
now First street, which, then had
stumps in It.
Captain Couch, who had preceded
his family on voyages to the Pacific
Coast in the early forties, took up a
land claim, known as the Couch dona
tion claim, adjoining the original Port
land claim established by Pettygrove
and others. With him was associated
his brother-in-law, George. H. Flan
ders, another of Oregon's pioneers.
Their tract extended from the Willam
ette River to a point a. mile back, em
bracing most of the land between An
keny and Washington streets, the river
and Thurman street. This tract was
later subdivided and sold, but the name
of Couch is perpetuated In Couch
street. Couch Addition and Couch
School, while Flanders street was
named after the other owner.
Early History Recalled.
The beautiful residence property
bounded by Nineteenth, Twentieth,
Gtisan aud Hoyt streets, has been re
tained intact all these years, and It
was in the home on this site that Mrs.
Lewis died yesterday after living In
Portland continuously for 62 years, a
large share of them passed on that
The Couch family settled at First
and Ankeny streets, where the Leon
ard building now stands, later moving
to a part of the homestead at Fourth
and Hoyt streets in the midst of a
great grove of oak trees on the shores
of Couch Lake. The former bed of the
lake has long since been filled in. The
Hill-Northern Pacific terminals are
now located there.
In that early day debates were fre
quent as to which would be the ulti
mate metropolis of this section. Port
land or St. Helens.
On January 18, 1857. Miss Clementine
Freeman Couch married Cicero Hunt
Lewis, a pioneer of 1851, who lived to
be one of Oregon's greatest merchants
and citizens. The marriage took place
In the first Episcopal Church building
erected In Oregon, a small edifice at
Second and Oak streets, where the City
Jail now stands. The church later was
moved to the corner or Fifth and Oak
streets, where the Commercial Club
building now stands. The Sunday
school of Trinity Church was con
ducted in this building for many years.
Benefactions Are Told.
Mrs. Lewis, kind and modest in her
disposition, was beloved by all who
knew her or who came In contact with
her. In a quiet way she was a generous
philanthropist, not interested in any
one particular movement, but in all.
The greatest enjoyment of her fortune
seemed to be in doing something for
At the time of the San Francisco
fire she donated $20,000 to the relief
fund. She also gave liberally to the
Good Samaritan Hospital and Trinity
Episcopal Church. The addition to the
Good Samaritan Hospital was built
by her as a memorial to her husband.
Mrs. Lewis' father. Captain Couch,
vas prominent among the builders of
Portland. He was born In Newbury
port in 1811 and educated in New Eng
land. When only 14 he went to sea.
Fourteen years later, in 1839, he was
sent out by Captain Cushing, of New
buryport, the father of the celebrated
Caleb Cushing, in command of the brig
Maryland, carrying a cargo of general
merchandise, which he was to dispose
of in the Hawaiian Islands and Ore
gon. This was his first trip to the
Portland Reached in 1S40.
In 1840 he continued upstream to the
Willnmette Falls, where only canoes
had ventured up to that time. After
building a warehouse at Oregon City
' to establish trade relations he later
abandoned it and dropped his anchor
below Ross Island In the present har
bor limits of Portland.
Keturning to Massachusetts, he bulit
th bark Chenamus. named after a
Chinook chief, on which he made three
subsequent voyages to Oregon. After
further investments in essels, he
abandoned the water and engaged in a
general wharf and warehouse business
on Front and Burnside streets. He
was a director of the Orearon Printing
Association and a plaintiff in one of
the only two cases heard at the first
term of the Supreme Gnurt. During
hi residence in Oregon City he was
elected as one of Its first Mayors, and

ture wife. Arriving in San Francisco

In 1S53, after Mr. Allen had returned
from a trip to the East, the firm of
Allen & Lewis, which now operates on
a large scale in this territory, as one
of the largest wholesale concerns on
the Pacific Coast, was organized. This
house was at first only a small grocery.
Rise to Influence Rapid.

COWBOY AT OAKS TURNS
DOWN OPERA CHANCES
Montana Bill Pruitt Refuses Long Contracts on Largest Circuits Because
They Take Him Too Far From Home and Ranch.

introduced him to Andreas Dippel, for

opera company, and the latter made
him one offer after another.
As exhibit A, Pruitt shows a long
series of letters, telegrams and postal
cards from the volatile Dippel.
Pruitt has recently been on the "big
time" in vaudeville, and, because of
his wife's health, decided to stay in
Portland for the Summer. As a result,
he is one of the features on the bill
at the Oaks Amusement Park, singing
in a voice that excites amazement.

LAMPSHADE GOWN NEW
FEATURE OF COSTUMING
Design for "The Passing Show of 1913," Created by M. Paul Poiret,
Leader of Parisian Fashions in Stage and Social Dress Styles.
THE lampshade gown, a unique
feature in stage costuming, shown'
for the first time on the Ameri
can stage in "The Passing Show of
1913," which comes to the Hellig Thea
ter for seven nights, beginning to
morrow (Monday), with special mat
inee Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday,
was originated by that famous creator
of styles. M. Paul Poiret. This well
known designer of original dress styles
leaped Into prominence as a stage cos
turner with the production in Paris last
Spring of "Le Minaret." His contribu
tion to toe dressing of the production
was a set of Persian costumes which
were at once the talk of Paris. Lead
ing dressmakers at once adopted his
style, and the wired lampshade tunic
at once became the sailent note of style
over the entire fashionable world to
the' extent of entirely changing the
M. Poiret also furnished the costume
designs for "Flowers of Allah," which
was produced at the Alhambra, London,
last year, and also for the new ballet,
"Nebuchadnezzar," the present attrac
tion at the same theater. He is Pari
sian born, and was for many years a
designer in the leading Parisian dress
making establishments. The secret of
his euccees lies in his courage to risk
the untried and new' and in getting
away from the conventional styles.
This courage has made him the orig
inator of an entirely new idea of fash
ion. He is a lover of beautiful colors
and uses them in a way never used
He is not only famous for his gown
creations and - costumes, but has also
gained great renown for the Interior
decorations he designed for his estab
lishment In Paris. His soirees are so
cial events. In the beautiful setting
of his establishment and his garden of
wonderful colors and flowers, he gives
annual costume fetes. This year it was
a Greek festival, with his guests as
mythological characters. The year be
fore it was Persian. Poiret is best
known to the general public as an ex
tremist of color and line in theatrical
costuming, although the garb designed
for women In private life is toned to
an aristocratic elegance without the

The plaintiffs are 20 and 17 and their
family, like Squibb's, occupies a promi
nent place in Ohio, Indiana and Ken
tucky. Both suits, one for $25,000 and the
other for $10,000, are based on alleged
actions of the millionaire defendant
toward the younger of the two girls,
the lesser amount being asked by the
elder on account of the loss of compan-"

Attack Is Charged.
The story as told by the attorney for
the girls is most sensational. Both are
orphans and the younger declares that
she met Squibb, who posed as a single
man, on December 15 last. He met her.
she says, in the postofflce and persuad
ed her to come to what he said were
his apartments. She did not for a min
ute suppose, she declares, that he had
any unlawful intention. Squibb, she as
serts, locked the door and attacked her.
As a result, she declares, that her
health has been permanently impaired.
That the matter will in all probabil
ity be called to the attention of the
Juvenile Court was the declaration of
the attorney for the two sisters. This
will be done because of the fact that
the younger sister is only 17 and comes
under the Juvenile Court age.
Girls Look Aboat 16 Years Old.
Mrs. Triplette and her sister are
small and look hardly more than 16.
Squibb is well known In this city,
both in his business way and socially.
He was married October 30, 1902, to
Miss Margaret Wentzel, of Delhi, beau
tiful daughter of the late John Wentzel.
and on January of this year he filed,
suit for a divorce. .
Squibb's suit charged his wife with
neglect, cruelty and willful absence,
he alleging that she had refused, to
live with him.
The next day Mrs. Squibb filed an
answer and cross-petition, in which
she charged neglect, cruelty and un
faithfulness. She declared that her
husband showed no affection. She said
that he kept a box in the postofflce
here, although he lived In Delhi, and
his business was in Lawrenceburg. She
also declared that on October 17 last,
she and witnesses followed her hus
band and found him with another wo
man. Mrs. Squibb has been making her
home with her sister. Mrs. Herman
