Portland, Or., Aug. 19. Tlie Evening
Telegram contains an interview with a
merchant on the fruit question, in which
the latter says: "All reports received by
us from the interior agree that tho fruit
crop in Oregon is very short this year.
Prices are well up now, and will not re
cede a particle. All firms have advanc
ed the price of dried apples to 11 J cents
per pound, ine market is almost en
tirely bare of Oregon dried fruits, and
most of the offerings come from Califor
nia. Oalifornia has sent most of her
canned fruits to the East, and is liable to
run short. Had we not made contracts
some tune ago we should be unable to
get a can of fruit. Eastern buyers took
small fruit this season more freely than
ever before, and cared little about, the
prices they were charged. In fact, the
demand has been beyond expectations
and is unchecked even by higher prices.

A Theater Darned.
Losdon, Sept. 5. A theater at Exeter
took fire this evening," during the per
formance of "Romany Re." The. occu
pants of the pit, in an awful struggle, es
caped, but many of them were greatly
injured. There was only one exit from
the gallery, and the crush there was ter
rific. Scores were trodden under fool
and suffocated. A fire escape was brought
to a windowand mani-insiil-se-
cuijl. Sixty corpses liavo beeh removed
The mortality is cstimatedat 100.
AN AWFUL SCENE.
j-iThe fire blazed fiercely, lighting up the
whole city. People were soon flocking to
the sceno in thousands, inquiring for
ThejBceno inside the theater when tho
fire broke out was an awful one. Some
men implored the audience to be calm,
but it was impossible to check the frantic
rush. The theater hose was brought in
to play in a few minutes, but water had
little effect on the flames.
Tho actors and actresses were taken
from the windows, with the aid of the
ladders. They lost everything except
what they wore at the time. Up to the
present time 1C0 bodies have been recov
ered. They aro almost unrecognizable.
Thirty injured survivors have been taken
to tho hospital.
The fire burned throughout" the night.
The search for bodies proceeds slowly.
In many cases every shred of clothing is

OltlOIX OF THE FIRE.
There are various reports as to the ori
gin of the fire. It is only certain that
flames broke out in tho scene shifter's
department. Those who,, escaped say
that the special exit was properly open
ed. The firoTirigade arrived fi e minutes
after the breaking out of tho flames, but
the efforts of the firemen were without ef
fect. There were Beveral thrilling res
cues. A majority of the victims were
men and boys. About thirty women
were burned. When the fire started the
drop scene was lowered to prevent
draughts. Some of the actors opened a
door to escape, causing fire to burst
through the drop scene and ignite tho
gallery. The flames overtook the people,
who were wedged in an immovable mass,
and roasteu them to ;3eat(i. Many who
were rescued alive died soon after being
brought out of the burning building. Tho
occupants of the dress circle escaped with
out serious harm.
Sept. C A telegram from Exeter at 5
o'clock this morninglsays that the fire
is under control. The people, distracted
with anxiety, are standing about the
streets in the neighborhood of the thea
ter, in search of friends who attended last
night's performance. The hospitals are
besieged by anxious inquirers for friends.
Twenty badly bumed persons who were
admitted to the hospitals died a few min
utes after they were received.

the prettiest in the kingdom. There was
a full house to-night and everything was
all right until tho end of tho third act at
half-past ten when tho drop scene fell
and in a moment tho whole stage was a
mass of fire. A wild panic ensued.
The occupants of the stall, pit and dress
circle escaped, after a dreadful crushing,
many being badly bruised. The actors
and actresses were in their dressing
rooms when the fire began, and all es
caped. The fire originated in the flues
and spread rapidly, filling the theater
with dense smoke. The occupants of the
upper circle and gallery rushed to the
windows, screaming frantically. Many
jumped from the windows and were in
jured. Others were rescued with the aid
of ladders from the verandas.

There aro a great many queer wayB
criminal and otherwise by which men ,
earn a living, but perhaps there is nono
more peculiar than that adopted by thW
alleged Dr. Grant of Boston. His profes
sion is that of marrying unsuspecting; fe
males. His motives aro purely pecuni
ary, and if ho can securer the money ho is,
after in tho course of his engagement to

In the course T( business during tho
last two years the doctor hasjlound it
necessary to marry five women. Numer
ous others he has simply caused to ar
rivo at a state of preparation for the altar1
before re-i'izinj on thia speculation1.
New York and Brooklyn have been in
cluded in his field of operations, and ho
did a fairly good business in tho minor
summer resorts. As ho was not embar
rassed by any reference to tho personal
appearance of those with whom ho dealt,
he found, in many casci, no competition 1
Ho fell, as many a shrewd man has fall

that of a Mr. Morton, of New Haven.whd
some years ago was bankrupted in the
same business. Morton had a real wife"
w hom, as w ell as his children, he thought
much of. He supported these dear ones'
and brought them homo many valuable:
presents besides, by systematically en
gaging himself to and, where necessary,
marrying such women as ho deemed fl'
nancially productive. Pending the pro
ceedings which sent him to tho Virginia
state prison it was ascertained that ho
had at least thirteen wives, with a larga
number of counties to hear from. There
is a suggestion contained here as to tho
advisability of women requiring satisfac
tory references when contemplating mar
riage on short acquaintance. And per
hsps there is also food for reflection, int
the premises, on tho ease with which the
average woman is captured.

C.Sears went with his family to Scattlotd
spend the summer months, and took his1
buggy horso Baby with hrtn. The Seat
tle horsemen hearing that the horso was
called one among the fastest buggy horsed
in Portland, concluded to have a trial
of sliced with him and the Seattlo buggy
horses. So a race was arranged to admit
any buggy horse in King county and Mr.
Sears's horso for a race, mile -heats, best
three in five, for a purse of $100.
The race came off last Saturday at thd
Seattle race track, and about 1500 peopld
attended tho races, and betting ran high,
the pools selling: $20,first choice, on Aus- .
tin's black-horse, $10 on Pago's bay horso
and $1.50 Sear's horso. The first heat'
was won by the Page horse; timo, 3:03.
Second heat was taken by the same horso )
time 2 :56Ki which mado him a Jhot
favorite in tho pools. The third heat
was taken by gear's horse, Pago's horse
second and Austin's horso distanced; '
time, 2:57. Tho Page boise was still sold '
favorite in tho pools. The.next heat was1
won by Sear's horse; timo, 2:56.
Each horse having now taken two heats'
the excitement ran high, and betting in
tho pools changed to even on' each horso.
The third and final heat was won by
Sear's horse; timo, 2:53, which gavo hha
the race and the putBo, rind won for his
