CHILDREN THROW FLOWERS
air. and Mrs. C. W. Dansie Have
Ceremony, Performed 11 Years
Ago by cx-Govcrnor of TJtali,
Repeated In Portland.
She wanted1 to be a rose bride and
tie was willing.
So C. W. Dansie, automobile man. of
Feattle, and his wife of 11 years. Belle
Bridewell, erstwhile grand opera sing
er, waltzed with the gay throng down
toward the Courthouse Friday after
noon and. for the second time in their
happy career, had a nuptial knot tied
by Judge George N. Davis, of the Cir
cuit Court. Their two children
Charles, aged 5, and Jeanne, aged 9
were there, as was a friend Murray
Mannville. The children threw rose
petals at their blushing father and
mother and in all the details the cere
mony was a solemn and proper and
bona fide celebration. When the serv
ices were over, the members of the
party took up their places in the merry
throng- of Festival participants and
had a wedding supper and recalled the
marriage scenes of 11 years ago, whenj
they were made man and wife by. no
less a notable than John Christopher
Cutler, then Governor of Utah and a
prominent member of the Mormon
Details Are Learned.
Yesterday the news of the needless
but none the less picturesque- and odd
ceremony came to light and with it
some ratherinteresting facts.
Mrs. Dansie was Belle Bridewell,
opera singer with a grand opera com
pany in Salt Lake some 11 or 12 years
ago. bhe and Mr. JJansle met, and the
ceremony afterward resulted at the
home of ' the bride's parents in Salt
Lake. The Bridewells, formerly of
Georsria, were well-known members of
the Mormon Church, as was the family
of Mr. Dansie. but the present Mr. and
Mrs. Dansie never quite kept to the
faith of -the Mormon Church. How
ever. Governor Cutler, who was a per
sonal friend of the Bridewell family,
rnciatea at tne ceremony, and among
oiher prominent folk there were the
lata Professor Goddard, singer, and
Professor Charles S. Kent, who recently
was In . Portland at the Pantages
Theater at the head of "The Garden of
the Rajah," a musical sketch.
Mr". Dannie Contralto Singer.
Mrs.. Dansie Js a contralto singer, but
since her marriage has not appeared
much in grand opera. She is a cousin
of Carrie Bridewell, a well-known
member of the Metropolitan , Grand
Opera Company of New York.
"Mrs. Dansie is a flower enthusiast,"
said Mr. Dansie yesterday, ."and for
years she has been wanting to come
to the Rose- Festival here. We have
been living in Seattle for several years,
and this was the first time we could
get away at Festival time. She con
ceived the idea of being a bride again
and said he would like to be a -'rose
bride," so we decided to have a second
ceremony during the Festival gaiety.
"Our families are members of the
Mormon Church, but we arc not."
Mr. ana .sirs, uansie win leave in a
few days for Honolulu, where they plan
to make their future home. " During
their stay in Portland they have been
at the Oregon Hotel and with friends
at tne Park Harris apartments.

TRIBUTE PAID TO PILOT
DEATH OF PIONEER RIVER PILOT
MOURNED BY MANY.
Labor Since 1851 la Helping Build t
Efficiency and Progress of Ore-
gen la Landed.
PORTLAND, Or., June 12. (To the
Editor.) The passing of Captain Will
iam H. Pope deserves more tnan formal
notice. Born In New York In 1S40, at
the age of 11 years his father brought
him to Oregon City, in 1851. The wife
Of Governor Abernathy, of the provis
ional government, was a sister of Cap
tain Pope's father, so that he is In
timately connected with and was one
of tHe early pioneers of this state.
Since 1851 he had labored to bring
Oregon .up to Its present high state of
efficiency and - progress. . For a good
many years he followed the trade of
tinner and worker in iron, but the lure
of the sea, brought on him by his trip
around the Horn In his early days, held
him, and a great many years ago he
forsook his trade to follow the river,
For many years he was captain of a
river steamboat up - the . Willamette,
down the Columbia and up as far as
the Cascades. It is the tribute of
everyone who ever traveled on the
boat commanded by Captain Pope-that
there always was a ray of sunshine
whenever be came In contact wttti
them. Twenty-five years ago he be
came a pilot of ocean steamera on the
Columbia and Willamette rivers and
has followed that ever since. .
Captain Pope was not a remarkable
man except in his- goodness. his
geniality and .ever-pleasant companion
ship. With a smile and a pleasant
word for everyone with whom he came
in contact, his memory Is cherished by
thousands whom he has known. Always
unassuming, never assuming, be won
the friendship of all.
It has been the writer's privilege to
be intimately acquainted with him for
more than 'half a-century, and 1 want
to pay bim the tribute that be was an
honest man. faithful and true to every
obligation, and that in him is fully il
lustrated the Just simile brought out
by Dr. Youngson In his funeral sermon,
quoting from Job: "He maketh his
path to shine after him." And of all
the men . I have known this quotation
fits few, if any, better than Captain
Vk ill lam H. Pope. - ,
Forty-eight years.' ago he married
Miss Sarah A. Keithley, who, with two
daughters, survives him. His home was
an ideal one. Love, harmony and good
feeling always prevailed, and after h
has passed away we feel that one man
who has helped to make Oregon what
she Is has gone. To bis friends he
always was true, and as such they will
mourn hlni. and to bis widow and
daughters his loss is irreparable and
can only be consoled by the thought
that tney win meet again.
"While we long for a touch of
vanished hand and a sound of a voice
that is still." as we lay him away we
will not say ''goodnight, but In some
fairer land bid me good morning."
