not only to settle this question that
was decided on April 9. 1865. but
t hn -fruestion as to the right the n ion
archies of Europe had in interfering
anywhere in the affairs of the American
Continent. For during those stirring

Prince to encompass the conquest ot

their guns and came over to us to get

Confederate greenbacks, but we told
them they were of no use to us as we
could get them at Washington for 20

the-Confederate soldiers seemed to be

Portland Celebration of Lee's Surrender More Demonstration of Thanks
for End of War, Sympathizers of North and South Taking Part.
f ESTERDAT was the 50th anni
versary of the surrender of Gen
eral Lee at Appomattox, and 60
years ago today the news of the fall of
Richmond was published in Portland.
The celebration of Lee's surrender did
not take place in Portland until April
the news of the surrender reaching
here on the previous day.
It was made the occasion, when the
news uld reacn nere, oi me siea-iooi.
elebration that Portland had ever
seen: a celeDration in wnicn not. ouir
the Northern sympathizers but nearly
all of the Southern sympathizers in
Portland participated.
George H. Himes, secretary of the
Oregon Historical faociety, wno was a
printer in The Oregonian office at that
time, and who set up the first "take"
of the dispatch on the assassination of
Lincoln a few days later, was one oi
the members of the committee that vis
ited the business men of the city and
arranged for the general illumination
of store buildings.
Illnmliutlon la Induced.
"There were only two who declined
to illuminate." he says, "and the com
mittee returned to them with the in
trusions: 'Illuminate your stores or
we will see, that they are illuminated
or you!' They illuminated.
North of Washington street tne wnoie
city was llluminatea witn canaies
placed in the windows of the stores.
nd throughout tne resiaence Bccuunn
all houses were lighted in tne same
stores were closed at 2 o clock in
the afternoon of the celebration, and in
the evening everyone turned out tor a
torchlisrht procession. The general
committee in charge of the celebration
had instructed each person to supply
himself with a torch and to be on
hand promptly. Following was the an
nouncement published in The Orego
nian of the order of exercises:
National salute, 12 o clock ai.; saiute
of 100 guns, 7:S0 P. M. on the Plaza:
ringing of bells. 7:30 P. M.
"Procession will form at 7:30 P. M.
First street, right resting on Stark;
march down First to Pine, down Pine
to Front, down Front to U. returning
upon Front to Salmon, up Salmon to
First, down First to Pine, up Pine to
Third, up Third to the Plaza, Where
the speakers ot tne evening win au-
dress the citizens."
Vainglory la Absent.
Colonel John McCraken was grand
marshal of that parade. H. W. Corbett
was general chairman and E. J. North
run secretary of the celebration committee.
The sneakers of the evening were
Judge E. D. Shattuck, Governor Gibbs,
J, H, Mitchell. Colonel Lexrabee, J, N.
Dolph, and' Rev. Mr. Himes. of Van
couver. Those who participated in the cele
bration and who are still among the
living citizens of Portland say that in
that great celebration there was noth
ing vainglorious, little- bitterness
against those whose sympathies still
lay with the lost cause of the South,
but in the hearts of nearly everyone
a feeling of heartfelt relief and Jubila
tion over the event which meant the
ending of the long tragedy of the war.
The banners carried in the parade
for the most part carried captions in
dicating rather tiie looking forward to
ward the security of peace than the
triumphing over a fallen enemy.
A pioneer citizen of Portland, who
was a participant in the celebration,
says, in part, in a letter to The Ore
gonian, in which he harks back to the
events of 60 years ago:
"To those that have arrived since
those times it should occur that when
we celebrated in years gone by coal
oil had not been refined for uxe, gas
was in its infancy and the electric
spark had Just been born to the use
of telegraphy only.
Tallow Dip Gives Light.
"The candle, or tallow dip, as it was
called, was the sole means of illumina
tion, and many boxes, bearing the
name 'Proctor & Gamble." stood the
same in the manufacture of candles as
the Standard Oil Company now does in
coaloil and its by-products.
"They manufactured a candle holder
with a nail in the bottom of the cup
to hold it in place, and candles as a
means of illumination were placed in
the interiors of the window frames,
porch railings, cornices, etc. Bonfires
of cordwood. with oil thrown on them,
made an inspiring illumination at
"We had just revived from the Jolli
fication over the ending of the war
when the news came along that Presi
dent Lincoln had been assassinated
April 14. . 1 was Just passing the Hotel
Aragont. on the east side of Front
street, between Stark and Oak streets,
when the news came. - The telegraph
office was in that building and Dr.
Plummer was in charge. A fellow
townsman stepped out of the office
and spoke to another man. saying that
they had Just received news that Presi
dent Lincoln was assassinated. We
three were the first to learn the news,
outside of the telegraph office.
"As the news spread there was a
complete change from the jollification
of a short time before to gloom. Feel
ing ran high, and some of the "copper
heads' who sympathized with the South,
although taking no part In the strug
gle, who spoke disrespectfully of the
late President, were pretty roughly
handled and warned that if they re
peated the offense they would be dealt
with more severely.," .. ,
Gay and sparkling music, called forth
hv Verdi's arrand opera. "Traviata."
with various minor undernotes to help
out the aobstorv. called out enthusias
tic applause from a large audience at
the Baker Theater Friday night The
devotees of pure Italian grand opera
were In their element, in a situation
where every word is sung In mellifluous
Italian, and the use of English is in
the background.
The presentation of the opera was mer
itorious and well staged. The company
Is now more at ease and the orchestra
members play with more cohesive en
semble effect, now that both singers
and opera singers have become used
to the theater. Any feeling of strange
ness has nassed away.
The opera "Traviata," in every-day
laniruaee. is what we know as
"Camille" and is founded on that fam
ous story by Dumas. The original play
is representative of recent "gay" or
"whitewav" French life, but the Ital
ian libretto changes the period to the
vinr 1700. in the days of Louis XIV.
Marguerite Gauthier, the lady of
many lovers, becomes Violetta Valery,
and Olvmpia becomes J? lora iieivoix.
The opera was first produced at Venice
in 1853, and at first its reception was
cold, due to the undoubted fact that
the Violetta was sung By aiaaame uon
atelli, a woman whose stoutness was
one of her chief charms. The audiences
refused to accept such a ropust opera
inirer as the consumptive, Droicen-
hearted girl, so artistically depicted by
Dumas. But brighter days oawnea iut
the Violetta of "Traviata," when Chris
tine Nilsson and subsequently the great
Adelina Patti made it a star part.
Last night. Genia Trivelii mane a sat-
lafvinjr imnression as the frail Violetta.
Trivelii is really an American girl and
her home is in California, tone only re
turned from Italy, where her voice was
trained and where she was grounded
in the traditions of Italian grand opera,
about sixth months ago. Trivelii
makes a sweet, appealing, glrlls-n vio
letta, with hardly any of the sub-sister
wail, or fits of coughing that . other
prima donna have thought it necessary
to endow It. Tnveurs vioietia is mou-
est, never suggestive. Trlvelll has a
pleasantly ringing, sweet, colorature
soprano voice of fine quality, and her
work in "trilling" is admirable. Her
sense of legato singing is much to be
admired and followed.
Gerolamo Ingar, lyric tenor, was Al
fredo, the lover of Violetta. ingar
made the part manly and romantic, and
his singing was in accordance witn
thi concent. Iiutars voice is oi tine
quality, free from vocal tightness the
objection to so many operatic tenors
and he uses it with wisdom and good
judgment. The part of Alfredo does
not call for any very high vocal notes,
and consequently the singer waa not
called upon for upper-story vocalisms.
His voice blends finely with that of
Trivelii. .
David Silva nwule a oig nit as Ver
mont. Silva has a Baritone voice xnai
la a. -nleasure to hear. It is deep.
sonorous and well trained. His sense
of vocal proportions, in en scmble ef
fect, is good.
TTmberto Rovere. as the Baron, acted
and sang with skill, and Edith Mackie,
soprano, made a iine-iooaing ana ap
pealing Flora. Miss Mackie has a pleas
ant voice.
Neri and Morelli. as uaston ana Dr.
Grenville, respectively, acted and sang
with fine effect. Morelli displayed
commendable quickness of movement in
the last act. where Violetta is is about
to die. She was clinging to a chair
near a bed, and Morelli was seated on
a chair near her. In the "agony" of
the death scene, somebody pushed. Mo
relli's chair, and it in turn collided with
a table supporting a large mirror. The
latter was nearly capsized, but Morelli
sat like a rock and the danger passed.
Had the mirror been allowed to fall,
the opera presentation would have suf
fered. ...
It seems that some contusion exists
a to whether De Folco, in singing
Celesta Aida," sang a hign a nat or
a in alt On a low-pitohed tuning
fork. I am told, he sang high B flat,
and on a concert-pitched fork, -be sang
the high C. There you are. Mr. Cec
chetta, musical director, says that De
Folco twice sang high u in ait towara
the end of the opera.
This afternoon "Aida" will be re
peated, and tonight the bill is "Rigo-letto."

complain of stomach trouble possess
stomachs that are absolutely healthy
and normal. The real trouble, that
which causes all the pain and difficulty,
is excessive acid in the stomach, ag
gravated bv food fermentation. Hyper
acidity irritates the delicate lining of
the stomach and food fermentation
causes wind which distends the stom
ache abnormally, causing that full
bloated feeling. Thus both acid and
fermentation interfere with and retard
the process of digestion. The stomach
is usually healthy and normal, but irri

foreign elements acid and winiT. In all
such cases and they comprise over 90
per rent of all stomach difficulties
the first and only step necessary is to
neutralize the acid and stop the fer
mentation by taking in a little warm or
cold water immediately after eating,
from one to two teaspoonfuls of
blsurated magnesia, which is doubtless
the best and only really effective
antacid and food corrective known. The
acid will be neutralized and the fer
mentation stopped almost instantly,
and your ptomach will at once proceed
to digest the food in a healthy, normal
manner. Be sure to ask your druggist
for the blsurated magnesia, as I have
