all of th. crew and some passengers

Spokane, Wash., Jan. 11. Miss
Louise Harris, one of the women drowned
In the wreck of the Clallam on th. sound
Saturday, was one of the most promi
nent society women of this city She
was a daughter of Mrs. Carrie Harris
and William J. Harris, a wealthy mining
man of this , city. . She was about 20
years old snd was a gifted musician.
Mr. snd Mrs. Harris separated some
time ago.' and Miss Harris came into an
estate estimated at about $26,000, In her
own right Mrs. Harris Is herself very
wealthy and Is the owner of the Victoria
hotel property in this city, Only a few
years sgo the family was in straitened
circumstances. 1 They removed to Ross

NEW BREWERY MAY BE
BUILT AT EUGENE
. (Journal Special Berries.)
Eugene, Or., Jan. 11. There are pros
pects for the establishment of a large
brewery in Eugene In the near future.
Henry Lang, who is registered here from
Olympia, Wash., and who represents
large brewerymen in Wisconsin, has been
interviewing the business men in regard
to t the advisability of establishing a
brewery here. He was given considera
ble encouragement and left on this af
ternoon's train, promising to be back In
eight or 10 days to further consider th.
Mr. Lang was very much impressed
with the city as a good location for such
an enterprise. There is no brewery
nearer than Albany, and the business of
this city and adjacent points would seem
to justify putting one In here.
It is known that the parties whom
Mr. Lang represents have plenty of capi
tal and that the brewery will be a large
on. If established here.

Oratorical Tests Between States.
' Eugene, Or., Jan. 11. President P. I
Campbell of the University of Oregon
has Just received a letter from the presi
dent . of the University of Ohio in re
gard to a movement to institute a sys
tem of oratorical contests between state
universities, to culminate In a final con
test the first on. to be held in th. hail
of congresses at th. St Louis world's
The plan proposed Is to first hold dis
trict contests; that Is, contests between
the various stat. universities in the
same section of the country. Then the
winners of the different districts will
compete at St Louis.
In order to aid in reviving something
of the old system of oratory one general
subject will be chosen by the managers
of the contest. From this general sub
ject a number of .subdivisions will be
made. A few hours before the contest
th. . competitors will draw their sub
jects from the list of subdivisions. This
scheme will tend largely to eliminate
the possibility of delivering a set ora
tion, thus doing away with one of the
objections to the system used in the
President Campbell has taken no action
in regard to the matter as yet but it is
probable that an attempt will be made
to have Oregon, Washington and Idaho
selected as one division, and if this Is
done the present arrangement for Inter
state contests between these three states
can be used to select the district can
didate. ' .
CLOSE OUT DIVES
(Journal Special Berries.)
Spokane, Wash., Jan. 11. Spokane's
dives are going to be cleaned out., The
police have let doWn the bars and any
one who cares can prosecute the women
engaged in - the business. That the
women will be prosecuted Is unques
tioned. The ministers have , already
taken the matter up and will Swear to
the warrants if need be, :
"I will issue a warrant for the ar
rest of any owner or owners of a
building' or buildings who are renting
their places for Immoral purposes, upon
complaint of any person, submitted In
the regular form." - So says Judge
Hlnkle when asked when the policy of
the police was Inquired about The re
cent order of Mayor Boyd left the fines
and rentals, which were attempted to
be regulated by an order of the mayor,
to Chief Woydt and Police Judge Hlnkle.
Neither man has to date accepted the
doubtful honor of regulating th. city's
revenues In th. matter. So far as can
be learned for both appear to voice
the same sentiment they will have
nothing to do with It in the . future.
Chief Woydt stated that he would be
diligent in serving any warrant that was
issued by,:. Judge Hlnkle.
So far as can be learned the plan as
left by the mayor is an orphan, and to
date without a home. It is stated that
some of the proprietors of the redltght
district have already taken advantage
of that fact and raised the rents to
tak. effect the first of the year.
Wont Be a Partner.
'1 do not propose to be a partner In
any transaction of this nature," states
Judge Hlnkle. "By regulating the fines
and rents the city goes into partnership
with these people in violating the law,
which plainly provides that in th. case
of landlords that 'Every person who
shall let or rent any room or building
for a house of ill-fame shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor and upon con
viction thereof shall be fined In any sum
not exceeding $100."
It Is also supposed that In the ab
sence of the owners, where property is
leased through agents, the agents will
be responsible and will be included in
the ban of disapproval. "There is no
doubt but what convictions can be se
cured," stated Corporation Counsel Jud
son. 'The fact that these women ap
pear month after month and pay fines
will be incriminating evidence as far as
the landlords are concerned. Some day
these people will be moved from their
present quarters Snd a section of their
own will be started where they will be
cut off from the rest of the city In a lit
tle colony of their own, and will have
their own stores, restaurants, etc." -
Under the law a complaint may be
made from day to day, and ss -many
cases filed against the proprietors as
there are days in which the rooms are
rented for these purposes.
Sacrifice Sale Draws Crowds.
What Is probably the greatest sacri
fice sale ever held In Portland is that
now under way at The Hub clothing
store. Third and Burnside streets. All
day Saturday thousands of men visited
the store, each and every one taking
away clothing that they bought for a
mere song. Bo great became the crush
the management was compelled to close
the doors at Intervals, that those inside
might have -room to turn around and
buy what, they could not even reach
during the crush. On th. pavements
the crowd Jostled and pushed one an
other until one man found his head
through one of the large windows. It
was at that time it was deemed neces
sary to call upon the police for aid.
The 'bargains are simply ridiculous, so
low are the prices.
Was It Your Fault?
If you loose your job, or fall In busi
ness -and . feel It was not your fault,
because you did the best you could, It
may still have been so, for the reason
that you did not keep your constitution

Winter freshets in the Willamette
river usually occur fn January and Feb
ruary, "although In rare instances they
have been known to make their appear
ance as early as November and as late
as March. The highest winter freshet of
which any record has been kept was
February 6, 1890, when the river was
28.7 feet above aero, or the low-water
mark. At that time Front and a part
of FJrst streets were partly inundated.
The next highest freshet was on Febru
ary 7, 1881, the rise at time being S3.S
feet above sero. , On January 28 last
year the Willamette rose to 19.S feet
compelling the steamboat men to move
to the upper docks. The danger point
la about 18 feet While at present there
is a good stage of water, there is no
indication of an early rise, but several
rainy days In succession would soon
change the situation.
The high water seasons here often sre
confounded. There are two of them, one
known as the Willamette river freshet
and the other as the annual June rise.
The former Is caused by heavy rains,
and the latter by the backwater of the
Columbia, swollen by melting snows in
the mountains. In the June rise of 1814,
the highest 'on record, the entire , lower
part of the city up to Sixth and Oak
streets was under water. ,

Fashion comes in snd goes out ss
surely as the tide, and on the incoming
waters' often a style that has been car
ried far-out on fashion's seas may re
turn not much changed. ,
The glove Is an example of this. To
day our long suede gloves, that In the
white kid have a design of embroidery
on the wrist, are very similar to those
worn by Queen Anne. A pair of hers Is
preserved in a palace In London. They
are two feet long, of doeskin, 'lined with
a soft, rich blue satin. On the back is
a design of birds embroidered in ' gold
braid. Both Queen Anne , and Queen
Victoria despised buttons, always pre
ferring,, tcr thrust ttbe hand into the
glove. - j- . j . - ,y
A glove worn by King George II,. of
soft yellow kid, measured about" 14
inches in length and six in width. These
measurements show that either the king
had Very large, hands or that then as
now large gloves were fashionable.
The eyery-day glove worn by Queen
Victoria was the unexciting buttonless
black cashmere that any quiet old lady
Wears today, . 1
The gloves she wore at her coronation
were more, Interesting. : They were of
white kid, 10 Inches long and three
wide. Those worn at the jubilee were
more elaborate, being 24 Inches long and
adorned With a gold-embroidered em
