LARGEST 'DAYLIGHT'' STORE IN NORTHWEST
FIFTH AND WASHINGTON STREETS
The plan of Mrs. Belinda. S. B&iley,
national president of the Ladies of the
Grand Array of the Republic, for the
establishment' of , a home for Indigent
veterans of the war of the rebellion, is
not for a big building but a series of
little cottages, where the aged soldier
can live with his wife and be cared for
by her, " . ,
"for," said Mrs. Bailey. , who Is in
Portland en route to Indianapolis, Ind.,
"as a rule when an old, soldier is .ad
mitted to the soldiers' home, his wife.
If. she is. unable to support herself, Is
taken to the alms house, ' My yUlt to
Oregon circles Is to inspect .the lodges
and incidentally to push- forward . the
plan for a new home. At present I have
but $1,600 in this fund, but expect to en
list the women of Oregon and Washing
ton, along with those of , California, in
the CaUse."-r -
Mrs. Bailey resides In San Francisco
and during her trip to Portland stopped
at RoHeburg, Eugene and Salem, where
circles of the .order exist' She will ad
dress' the" local - circle this evening and
' will go to; Seattle tomorrow. :'! V .',:
The Ladles of the Grand .Army of the
Republic is comparatively a hew organ 1
zatiorf on the coast although it has been
in existence since 188. It Is of ten con
fused wltli' 'the Woman's Relief; corps,
the auxiliary : of the G. A. R., but Is a
separate -organization and is in no way
connected 'with the Grand Army, except
that, veterans of the rebellion -are ad
mitted ' as associate - members, ' and all
members must be lineal descendants of
soldiers, sailors or marines who fought
during the civil war. t ;
"This organisation." Said Mrs. Bailey,
"will live when the 0. A. R. and the- W,
R. C. cease to exist, because we can con
tinually take In new blood 'and may' be
regarded as an organization such as the
Daughters of the Revolution. ;
"Just at present, however, we are not
growing very fast, but this is accounted
for because the mothers are' too old to
take' an active part in the. work. Many
of the wives have household cares that
take up their, time, and the daughters
are most too young.
J. E. Walton,, a Seattle marine man
who is visiting in the city for a few
days, 1 of the opinion that there is an
entirely too great a loss, of life by
steamship wrecks. - He suggests a plan
which,: if . followed, he believes would
be the means of reducing the mortality
list In this connection to very small pro
portions. Mr. Walton says: :
"AH steamship companies should be
forced to carry lifeboats on tbelf vt-
sels, the same as the government has at
all life-saving stations. These have air
tight compartments with port holes' on
the-sides. As fast as shipped, water
would be discharged. They are made
of the very best of material. Rigging
could be so arranged that the passen
gers could be lashed in the boat mak
ing it Impossible for anyone to wash
overboard. - - -:. -' '; :
'."Eventually the passengers would find
land, and not be drowned Ilk a lot ot
sheep, as Were those unfortunate people
on board the Clallam.
'The Are drill is something to which
strict attention should be paid on board
a steamer, j I have made two trips to
Nome and. return lately, and know that
this matter was never given a thought
by the captain during either of the voy.
ages. This is all wrong and unjust to
the passengers, whose safekeeping rests
entirely tn his hands. There should be
a (Ire drill every day in the presence of
the passenger", and in the moment of
peril there will not be nearly so much
excitement shown as under the present
method of doing .things."
JUSTICE REED IS
THINKING OF MARTHA
Justice Reed is carefully sifting the con
flicting' evidence submitted to him yes
" terday when Paul' Helnti, keeper of a
boarding-house at Seventh and Gllsan
streets, was tried on a charge of assault
and battery. , ; . '
Helnti was accused by Martha Meyer,
aged IS, who charged him with seising
her by the arm and ejecting her from
his house Wednesday of last week. She
had gone there, with her sister, Lizsle,
who, had just quit her position in ' the
Ileints household. Both sisters claimed
that Helnti and his wife had circulated
tin true stories about them, and when
they accused them of till Helnti became
angry. : ' - -
' The defendant who wears an Emperor
William mustache, was . considerably
confused on the atand, but he claimed
that Martha .Meyer had . used insulting
language to Mrs. Helnts and had dared
him to put her out. He said be simply
led her to the door and used no unneces
sary force. , ' .
IN ONE MONTH

checks during the past month Albert
- Stags was arrested by Detectives Kerri
gan and Snow yesterday afternoon. lis
