PORTLAND did not believe In riots
or extra judicial violence, and 30
years ago It was proving this to
Its sister cities of the Pacific North
west. In order to-repress anti-Clnneso
demonstrations, which had been prev
alent in the other larger cities of this
tection, resulting, among other things,
Jn the forcible expulsion of the Chinese
from Tacoma, there was formed a mili
tary organization originally mustered
in for. SO . days, but which afterwards
became a part of th Oregon National
Guard, under the name of Company K,
First Regiment. The .company as thus
organized in 18SS kept its organization
intil "the breaking out or the Spanish
The old Company K is to have a re
union on Wednesday evening of this
week, and it is expected that through
a. reunion organization just perfected,
these meetings will become annual
events. All former - members of the
Company K organization, as.- outlined
nbove, who have not received notice of
the entertainment for Wednesday even
ing and who are desirous of coming to
the same, may communicate with A. B.

officers of the reunion committee are:
General Charles l". Beebe, chairman,
and Major Dan P. Moore, historian.
The temper of the times, which oc
casioned the formation, of Company K,
w ill be recalled by old I'ortlanders, and
this, together with -a reminiscence of
the general history of the company, is

by one of those who. though promoted
to larger fields of activity in National
Guard matters, holds in closest remem
brance his associations in Company K:
Chinese Trouble Arose.
"The object in forming this organiza
tion was to make an effort to prevent
an attempt which was threatened here

nese. This was first attempted in Ta
coma and all the Chinese were expelled.

Then it was tried in Seattle, but was
prevented there by the militia com
panies, in connection with regular
troops which were sent over by General
Gibbon from Vancouver Barracks.
"There were a number of labor agi
tators who had come here from San
Francisco about the same time, and
several - meetings were held at which
incendiary speeches were made in an
effort to throw out the Chinese in Port
land, and then commenced the system
of driving them into ' PorUand from
outlying lumber camps with the idea of
deporting them from here.
"In view of the fact that we. had no
really efficient militia organization
here outside of Company G, which was
a fine organization, it was necessary to
do something to thwart the attempt,
and a general meeting of citizens was
called in the County Court room and
two companies were organized- One
was called Company I, and the other K-
"The latter included among its mem
bers a number of the leading business
and professional men 'of the city, in

Henry Corbett, Dr. A. D. Bevan. K. Ls

"These two companies were organized
as temporary organizations in the state
militia -on the evening of March 25,
1886, being each from 125 to 150 strong.
The emergency having passed some
what later. Company I, which was made
up mosly of railroad officials and
clerks, disbanded. but Company iv
maintained its organization, and three
months later was reorganized as a per
manent part of the state militia.
"About a year later, thre being a
sufficient number of companies to war
rant regimental organization, the First
Regiment, Oregon National Guard, was
mustered in. Company 1-C being taken
over. The class of membership in this
company was such as to give it a posi
tion of strong influence In the com
munity, and it can be said that in this
way Company K became an important
feature in the first real militia and Na
tional Guard organization of this state.
"It participated in all functions in
this connection until 18U8, when it was
combined with another company and
became one of the companies of the fa
mous Second Oregon Infantry, whose

SEASON OF GRAND OPERA DRAWS
NEAR TO CLOSE IN NEW YORK? CITY
"Taming of the Shrew" Is Sung in German by Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra Opens Concert Tour at Car
negie Hall, "With Walter Damrosch as Conductor and Josef Hoffman as Soloist.
NEW YORK, April 1 (Special.
.- With the close of the opera sea
son within two weeks, the last
quasi novelty was produced with very
Kreat success on a Wednesday, even
ing at the Metropolitan, contributing
to the list of Shakespearean attractions
that have been offered as memorials
in commemoration of the tercentenary
of the great bard.
"The Taming of the Shrew," sung in
German, having been set to music by
Hermann Goetz, proved an agreeable
addition to the musical offerings at
that house, although the Shakespearean
epirit may not have been strongly felt
in the German version. With the Goetz
opera as with many others that have
had belated presentations in New Toijk,
one feels the lack of freshness in a
certain sense, -while on the other hand
the costuming and characterizations
leave the spectator to his own impres
sions of pictures of an old period.
One of the most beautiful phases of
of Wednesday evening's performance
was the surpassing beauty of the color
echemes- and the stage effects. These
were Qf the most modern school, but
they were refined to the most artistic
degree. Unkind as It may seem to
ca.vil at such real deliffht to the eye
es tnese colorings supplied, there was
a distinct feeling of anachronism.
With due respect for all the imper
sonations, several of which were un
usually fine, the Petrucio of Clarence
Whltchill stood forth like the reim
bodiment of a. true Shakespearean
hero. Superb In manner, imposing in
figure and in the rare beauty of his
voice, he was the dominating spirit
and gave to it what Shakespearean at
mosphere the opera might have been
eaid to possess.
It is a far cry from such marvelous
Impersonations : as Mr, Whitcbill has
given of Amfortas and the Wanderer,
his grreat Wagnerian- 'masterpieces,- to
the dashing, picturesque figure in the
Goetz opera, and nothing was more em
phatic than the remarkable versatility
of the American baritone whose ex
quisite representations have been too
rarely teen at the Metropolitan this
Mme. Ober's Kathcrine gave her the
opportunity for wide departures from
her former stately impersonations. Her
energy, both vocal and histrionic, had
ample scope. It can hardly be said
that she was engaging, because there
was considerable realism in the manner
in which she flung things about.
Sometimes her tones suffered from
an excess "of force placed upon them.
Perhaps it would be an amiable sug
gestion to make to Mme. Ober that her
singing at the final rehearsal, when she
was saving her voice, was much more
beautiful than at the performance when
she was giving all that she had and
more than she should have given. The
reserve supply in voice as in every
thing else is the thing: to be most de
sired, and unfortunately, Mme. Ober
never reckons with this.
By this time she should be accus
tomed to the size of the house In which
she is singing, for which reason it la
more open to criticism than It . was
early in her career, when ehe was etill
feeling her way. Her closing scene,
quiet in mood, submissive and tender
was one of the loveliest thing's which
Mme. Ober has done at the Metro
politan. It was to be classed with
her wonderful impersonation of the
title role in "Dcr Rosenkavalicr," one
of the most beautiful roles in- tho gal
axy of gems of this house.
The parts of Luccntio ami Hortensio
were Fung by Johannes Sembnch. and
Robert Leonhardt, the later having a
truly luscious, and lovely It alia a voice
and a splendid sense of humor which
nave him the opportunity to show bet
ter results than have been possible to
him heretofore. His comedy was more
spontaneous than that of his compan
ion, who was quieter in mood but
whose voice was of unusual beauty.
Marie Rappold was a niOEt engaging
ncrure as Bianca. a sister of the
"Shrew," and her singing of the music
allotted to her was beautiful in quality
and effective throughout. To the eye,
Mme. Rappold was, as usual, most at
tractive. Goritz was heard as Bap-
tista, the father. Basil Ruysdael as
Grumio, and Albert Reiss as the dapper
tailor, each of them in his own dis
tinguishing phases of comedy arousing
Marie Mattfeld was the housekeeper.
and Max Bloch the Major Domo. There
were some fine choruses, which again
reflected credit upon that past-master
of his art. Giullo Setti. The music is
genial without being impressive, and
there was a free and easy flow under
the baton of Mr. Bodanzky, who was
responsible for the excellent perform
ance. The costuming and stage setting
were exceedingly beautiful. "The Tam
ing of the Shrew" will have several
performances yet this season.
"Mme. Sans-Gene," which was to have
its first performance last week, came
through as scheduled, with Miss Farrar
suficiently recovered to make her usual
success in the title role. This noted
singer is developing a talent for the
more hoyendlsh sides of her character
izations, and she was never more inter
esting than tr the laundry as the Mme.
Sans-Gene of the people.
Mr. Polacco conducted the Giordano
opera with much fire in some parts,
securing mere russcd and elementary
, effects Uian it bad cVer ehown, This
conductor has plenty of red blood ir
his work, added to which is a steady
flow of enthusiasm, sincerity and other
characteristics which have made of him
all season an able substitute for those
who have prone before.
Amato's Napoleon was admirable, not
only for the vocal beauty of every
thing he does, but in figure and facial
expressions and what he has achieved Is
not short of remarkable. Martinelli as
LeFebvre, Althouse as Nelpperg and de
Segurola as Fouche were cast as last
season in roles which they enhanced
as much by their intelligence by
Althouse shows steady growth and
much more freedom on the stage, and
there is little doubt that this American
tenor is destined for a. great career.
Others in the roles of smaller impor
tance as soloists but of very great bear
ing upon the excellence of the perform
ance were Denora Sparkes, Rita F.ornla,
Sophie Braslau, Vera Curtis, Tesani,
Leonhardt and others.
"Samson and Delilah" came into a
new life with the presence of Mme.
Homer as Delilah. On Saturday after
noon the contralto received an absolute
ovation for the very great beauty of
her singing and for the rare intelli
gence and subtlety rather than craft
which she manifested in her perform
ance of the part of the seductress. One
felt less a sense of vicious murder and
betrayal than the trapping of the ene
my of her people. It also supplied
Amato with another triumph and
Caruso with one of the best French
roles in his repertory.
The New Tork Symphony Orchestra
under Walter Damrosch. with Josef
Hof man as soloist, both ' closed and
opened a season af Carnegie Hall. If
was the last performance in New Tork
of this splendid organization, and it
was the opening concert in the tour
which will take both orchestra and
soloist as far as California and the
Iforthwest on one of the most impos
ing tours ever undertaken by an or
chestra. Josef Hofmann was heard in the Em
peror concerto of Beethoven, the beauty
of which has not only not been dimmed
by time, but which through its pristine
loveliness has never seemed so youth
ful. To be sure, Hofmamfs playing of
tbU work was eupiewu both Piauist-
ically and from the point of interpre
tation, and it is very seldom given an
orchestral accompaniment so thorough
ly in sympathy in every shade and
In addition to this concerto. Hofmann
played a group of piano solos, and the
orchestra was heard in Tschaikowsky's
Fifth Symphony, given as the opening
number. Mr. Damrosch and his men
received a well-deserved ovation after
this number, and the Beethoven work
brought one of the most hearty out
bursts of Joy that hns been noted In a
concert hall for a lontr time. The or
ganization left immediately after the
concert for Rochester, and it is cer
taiif that every city in which it will
appear may credit to itself one of the
greatest events in its musical history.
The Boston Symphony has paid its
last visit of this season to New York.
The usual number of enthusiasts and
music lovers manifested both a wel
come and a lareweii to ine sreai
ganization, which under Dr. Muck, has
so much to give. The programmes for
these concerts were somewhat con
servative In nature, the greatest Joy of
Thursday eveninrr coming from Schu
mann's Joyous First Symphony, which
brought repeated rounds of applause
for the conductor, who insisted on
sharing it with his men.
In addition to the Schumann
"Spring" symphony. Beethoven's "Leo
nore" overture No. 1, and Joachim's
violin concerto occupied the attention.
Tho violin number was played by An
ton Witek, concert-master of the or
chestra. It is a difficult work and
perhaps not always Interesting1, to
which may be attributed the difficulty
which Mr. Witek seemed to experience
in giving It any great degree of sig
nificance. The well schooled violinist
lacked something in geniality, and. this
was heightened by the concerto itself.
Saturday afternoon the programme
cvonsisted entirely of music by Ger
man composers, and the number in
which the beauty of the orchestra was
most emphasized was Beethoven's
Second Symphony, which is always a
privilege to hear, and when offered by
an orchestra of such perfection is
something" for which to be devoutly
Brahms' "Academic Festival Over
ture" and the prelude to Wairner's
'm Mtistsisiiioec" wci'g Xaiuiliar and
well received, while Mozart's "Con
certante Symphonic" for violiiv and
viola, played by Mr. Witek and Mr.
Ferlr, first viola, was less well known,
but was one of the most thoroughly
enjoyed numbers of the two pro
grammes. The Russian Symphony Orchestra
also closed Its series of concerts in
New York, when Mr. Altschuler brought
forward a complete novelty in the per
son of Sascha Votitcehenko, who is a
soloist upon an instrument called-.the
tympanon, considerably smaller In size
than the cembalo which Is seen in
Hungarian orchestras- While the solo
ist's offering was hardly taken seri
ously by the sort of audience which
listens to a symphony concert, he
proved to be tremendously skillful,
and in a smaller auditorium under
more intimate- conditions he would no
doubt succeed in establishing himself
His numbers consisted principally of
folk music, which he or others ar
ranged for this instrument. Mr.
Altschuler closed the programme with
Tschaikowsky's Sixth Symphony, and
novelties of the first part were Glaz
ounow's "Overture on Three Grecian
Themes," and Rachmaninoff's "Fan
taisie in Four Tableaux," an orchestral
arrangement made by Mr. Altschuler
from an original work for two pianos.
The Russian Symphony Orchestra is
announced as having brought suit
against Lin a Cavalieri and Lucien Mu
ratore for breach of contract at the
last concert of this organization. This
is based upon the alleged loss of a
large amount of money expended in ad
vertising and the amount for which the
organization sues is $25.vpo.
