Portland Musical People Are
Highly Satisfied With New
t Instrument.
rB at Loss snd a Greater Gain
Key lici-k May Be Moved at Will to
Any Ioint Desired, and Is Con
nected by Electric Cable
With Other Tarts.
Portland organists and musical peo
ple are well pleased with the type of
organ selected by the City Council for
the Public Auditorium. It is agreed
that it will be a wonderful instrument
and a great asset to the city from many
points of view. The people here may
rest assured that it will compare favor
ably in every way with the best rep
resentative work in America or abroad.
A description of the organ may well
begin in the basement of the Auditor
ium. Here, in a separate room, will be
installed an "orgoblo" a rotary fan
revolving at great speed and supplying
the wind for the organ on the floor
above. The temperature of this room
must be kept the same as the main
auditorium, for organ pipes are suscep
tible to the least change and cold air
blown through warm pipes, or the re
verse, would cause the organ to sound
badly out of tune. The wind pressures
on which the pipes will sound vary
from 6-inch to 25-inch, though the
heavier wind pressure is not employed
for the purpose of making the greatest
possible noise. It has been found by
competent builders that on a moderate
wind pressure it is possible to obtain
greater refinement of tone and quick
ness of speech than on a low pressure.
Heavy pressure therefore is used to
gain refinement, not noise. Three reg
ulators will prohibit any sound of the
blower passing into the wind- trunks
and from thence into the organ and
Organ Proper Is Divided.
The organ proper will be divided and
will be placed on either side of the
proscenium arch. A 50-foot electric ca
ble will connect the organ to a mova
ble console, or key desk, making it pos
sible to move the console to any de
sired location. There will be four man
uals, or keyboards, named from lowest
to highest, choir, great, swell and solo.
These manuals control separate and
complete divisions of the organ. By
means of a patent touch the action o
the keys is reduced after the initial re
sistance of three and three-quarter
ounces to one and three-quarter ounces
thus relieving the hands and fingers
of all unnecessary strain in holding
down sustained chords. The pedal
board is played by the feet and controls
another complete division of the organ.
The manuals may be connected by
means of couplers in the form of tilt
ing tablets placed over the highest
manual. There will be 26 couplers, en
abling the performer to connect the
manuals at the unison, an octave
higher and an octave lower. Beneath
each manual will be placed the adjust
able combination pistons, more than 40
in number, and visibly moving the reg
isters. The performer sets in advance
the desired combinations of stops on
the necessary pistons, and brings them
on at the proper time by a pressure on
the necessary pistons, and brings them
on at the proper time by a pressure
from the thumb. These pistons will be
augmented by nine, worked by a pres
sure from the foot. The stops will be
arranged in distinctly separate groups,
with solid ivory register heads, and at
an angle of 45 degrees to the manuals.
The choir, swell and solo divisions
will be inclosed in chests made of 2x4
studding, covered on both sides with
metal lathing and cement. Balanced
foot levers will operate the swell
shades controlling the crescendi and
ripe Length Gives Pitch.
The pitch of an organ stop is made
known by stating the length of the
longest pipe it contains. Stops of eight
foot length are of unison pitch; that is,
of the same pitch as the piano. A pipe
of four-foot sounds an octave higher
than one of eight-foot; similarily, one
of two-foot, two octaves above one of
eight-foot, one of 16-foot an octave
lower than one of eight-foot, and so on.
The pedal stops are uniformly one
octave lower in pitch than the manual
Organ color is divided into four
groups diapason, string, flute and reed.
The diapason tone is peculiar to the
organ, finding no counterpart in the
orchestra and constituting the back
bone or the organ. The huge rolling
tones of the diapasons give to the or
gan its greatest dignity. The follow
ing table gives an outline of the diap
ason family as it will appear:
tireut, 10-foot double open diapason;
8-foot open diapason, large scale; 8-foot
oppn diapason, smaller scale; 4-foot octave;
-foot fifteenth; 3 rank mixture, sounding
three notes at onre. Swell. 8-foot diapason;
4-foot octave; 2-foot flautino. Choir, 8-foot
diapason. Solo, 8-foot stentorphone. Pedal,
32-foot open diapason; 16-foot open diapa
son;; 8-foot octave; 4-foot super-octave.
The 32-foot pedal diapason is one of 'the
richest stops on an organ, is 8 feet long at
Its longest pipe. No organ in the Northwest
has this powerful adjunct.
String tone will be thus represented:
Swell. 8-foot sallclonal; 8-foot voix celes
tes; 3 rank mixture.
The voix celestes is purposely tuned
slightly sharp to the pitch of the organ, so
that when drawn with another stop a
pleasant inaulating or tone Is secured.
'hoir. 16-foot garaba: 8-foot dulcet. Solo,
8-foot gross gamba: 8-foot gamha, celeste.
Pedal, l?-foot vlolone; 16-foot gamba;
8-foot cello.

8-foot spitz rioetc; 8-foot flute celestes
4-foot flute.
The 8-foot flute celestes Is on the prin
ciple or the viox celestes, but of flute color.

Babies Celebrate Return of
Mother From Campaign.
Devotion to Cause, Sacrifice for Her
Principles and Able Presenta
tion of Her Statistics Are
Expected to Help Much.
Right in front of me, on my desk, lies
a little telegram which has severed for
the time being, insofar as the outward
signs of it are concerned, one of the
most splendid friendships it has ever
been my fortune to make.
The telegram reads:
"Arrived safely. My babies and hus
band very happy. All of us are cele
brating. Things look awfully good for
a Hughes victory here." And it is
signed "Fondly yours. Mrs. E. B. Han
ley." She has gone back to her ranch, and
wee 9-year-old Katherine and 12-year-old
Junior, and big E. B., who ia her
pal and husband.
The golden voice I've so loved to
hear in challenge to some Democrat to
disprove 'her statistics Is going to get
again in harness and call the cows, and
carol over the buttermaking.
Error Afford Amusement.
And that buttermaking line reminds
me of a laugh she and 1 had toarether
a few days ago. I wrote a line about
airs. Hanley having "left her butter
making, preserves," and by some mad
manner it got into print that she "had
left her butler making preserves."
Now, I ask of you. did you ever read
a more Idiotic line? She laughed hilar
iously over it. ror never has she had a
butler and she makes her own pre
serves. Just before she set out on this cru
sade she made nearly a hundred glasses
of red currant jell. If Hughes is elected
she's going to send me some. If he
Isn't elected, she'll not send me some.
The Hanley kiddies will need it, to put
on their bread if they have bread for
the next four years.
Of course, it won't really be a mat
ter of actual bread but that's figura
tively speaking.
Mrs. Hanley is absolutely truthful
when she says that they couldn't make
things go on the ranch thesei last four
years. Why on earth any Democratic

The Hanleys couldn't make it go.
Their expenses and what they had to
put into its upkeep went staggering
high in dollars. o Mrs. Hanley took,
it over, with the help of Junior and
Mr. Hanley went to Alaska. Which Is
more or less ancient history now, but
I've got a lot of things to say in this
column and that's one of 'em.
Another is that I want you to know,
honestly and truly, that Mrs. Hanley
not in this big work for any personal
aggrandizement. She has a cplendid
white flame of sincerity In her lovel
little woman's body. She has don
much to kindle the fire of Idealism
an Idealism of the lasting result-show

time in years. She has a strong cino

She left her home and her babies and

Her voice has gone hoarse, her body
has been racked with a deep cold, her
nerve cells have been burned at a pite

comforts that a traveling man never

penny for it.
She has been carrying a banner.
Hughes is writ on it. Mrs. Hanley bus

that the splendid convictions sho feels

And right here is where I want to
tell you of how she happened to give
herself to this great issu. She told
about it at several of the places we
visited but it hurt her to tell it

Into her throat.
Kather, Who Innplrrd, I Gone.
For the loved father, who taught
her patriotism when che was a wee
little girl, has gone away forever, and
she probes deep into a big wound when
the subject needs come up.
"He was a poor boy," she said to me
in a hushed little voice. "He and
mother came across tho plains on their
honeymoon and all they had in tho
wide world was love and stout hearts
and a big faith in this country.
"It was never given to my father to
become anything but a good citizen, a
taxpayer, and keeper of tho laws. But
he taught us children early to love the
flag, to revere our country and if ever
came to us a chance to do a bit for the
wonderful country that had sheltered
him and his, we must leave all else and
And that is the simple, little story,
and the truth.
"The time when my father would
have bade me go is now," says Mrs.
Hanley. "When the world is being
judged, when the nations are passing

when our own Nation is facing a crisis
I want to add my bit to help. And if
I can have some part in helping to elect
Charles Evans Hughes, even if it's only
by telling my little pig story and hav

I'm glad to do it."
Witty Sally Enjoyed.
And one of the funny Hanleyisms
that occurs to me right here is a re
mark shu made when she read in a
This business has rounded out twenty
two months of existence by distribut

thousand cars.
Price-concessions on this car are rarely
asked, and never given with Dodge
Brothers consent or to their knowledge.
You can therefore figure accurately
the amount invested by the public
in Dodge Brothers cars, by multiplying
the output by the retail selling price.
One hundred thousand cars at $785
per car means a sales-total in less than
two years' time of $78,500,000 or,
with freight-cost added, considerably
more than $80,000,000.
There have been no bursts of speed in
the up-building of this great business.

And there's something else I must
tell you. It's about the aggies and
the buttons Mrs. Hanley took to Junior.
Tho aggies, you must know, arc just

Is pretty close lo that young man and
she knows that a sack full of aggies
Is a Ine treasure and soiuet inis more

you, that scores of folk handed their

Some one sent me a clipping from
some Democratic paper in which this
line is all I remember because of the
great interest it tells:
"Sho Is a woman of the type who

It is to laugh. It is a craving for
constant excitement. I reckon, that

excitement that made her do her own

Work Brings Oi Cold?
And I can think of a iot of things
wilder than a iharp pain In a lunk
and a nervous chill on a cold ttuse
volume every day, Dodge Brothers are
"losing business" by their policy of
keeping production within the bounds
of continuous betterment.
In that sense they have doubtless suf
fered a great loss in the past and will
endure a great loss in the future.
But over against this great loss is an
infinitely greater gain.
The people of the United States have
implicit faith in the integrity of Dodge
Brothers manufacturing methods.
One hundred thousand owners or
rather, one hundred thousand families
are practically of one mind concerning
the car and the men who make it.
This business and its product are

car will never be changed a hair's
Dodge Brothers have only one idea in
the upbuilding of their business.
That idea is to build so soundly and so
well that the good will which they have
won will grow and endure forever.

You never heard of Mrs. Hanley be
fore this campaign, did you? Why
hasn't she been out craving excitement
before now? Well, then, why not ac
cept her own, sincere, truthful reasons
for going into It that she wanted to
do her bit to belp elect Mr. Hughes?
She believes in him as a man. and has
faith in his principles.
As for the Hanley isms, here they are
at least a few I remember.
