MARRIED LOVERS'.
V IN pLay ELOPE
Mrs Addie Downs, Wife of WinlocL WasLi
Minister,, Flees with Carl $ Alvord, Who De
serts His Bride Arrested and Releasee
Mrs. AiMIe Downs, the wife of a
Methodist minister at Wlnlock, Wash.,
has deserted her husband and five chil
dren, ranging In age from 5 to 11 years.
Carl S. Alvord, a blacksmith, has left
Ms young wife with but 2 centa in
money. They ar-J thought to be fleeing
south on a Southern Pacific train.
The minister's wife and the Iron
worker met while practicing for a
church cantata. Both were members of
the choir.' They stood side by side, and
during a part Of the program took part
In a tableau, which illustrated love and
forgiveness. In this they were clasped
In each other's arms. Apparently they
rehearsed the love scene outside of the
churchy The concluding act was flight.
The couple lived at Wlnlock, on the
line of the Northern Pacific. After a
cantata rehearsal on Saturday night
they took the late train for Portland. A
telegram from Marshal J. L. Meyers of
Wlnlock asked the police to arreBt them,
and when they arrived in Portland yes
terday morning they were taken to the
city JaW in the patrol wagon. No charge
was made against them and they Were
dismissed early this morning. They
stated that they would take the electric
road to Oregon City and there take tna
Southern Pacific train for the south.
' Mrs. Downs said that she was afraid
that her, husband would kill her, and
had often abused and threatened her,
so that sift was afraid to go back home.
Captain Baiiey expressed doubt aa to
the truth of her story.
Mrs. Downs' answered: "He Is a
wretch and will have to answer to God
for his acts."
"Will you answer to God for leaving
your children and husband, when you,
.as a minister's wife, should set an
'example?" asked Captain Bailey.

C, 8. Alvord worked at Sunnysfde as
a blacksmith before going to Wlnlock
four months ago. A little over a year
past he married the daughter of A. O.
Dlx. a farmer living on the Cornell road,
about five miles from Portland. He
dresses well and has a fine tenor voice.
Ills domestic relations! were agreeable
and no cloud marred the happiness until
he was thrown Into the society of Mrs.
Downs.'
His wife was brought to Portland last
evening by some of her woman friends
of Wlnlock. Last nleht she stonned c
wan ner aunt, xurs. jane, in East Port
land. This forenoon she was taken to
ithe home of her parents. She is in a
critical condition, and the shock of the
desertion at this time may prova fatal.
Mrs. Smith, the woman from Wlnlock.
who brought Mrs. Alvord to her home,
said: .
"The action of Alvord In leaving his
wife at this time Is brutal. The shock
may kill her. She has been In a state of
nervous collapse ever sine the news of
her husband's flight has been told, her.
The family has always lived happy. He
supported her well. Tit cantata ts
responsible for all the ,' trouble! The
story that Pastor Downs abused his
wife is not true. He Is a noble, man.
He is heart broken over the blow to. him
self and his children. He aaid he would
make no effort to have the woma n return
but would try and forget her. and aa far
as possible to shield the children from
the disgrace that she; has brought on
them." ' '
Mrs. Lane, In speak Ins; eT tier niece,
stated; "Mr. Alvord has always b'
considered the soul of hrcwr , H has
always seemed greatly ttctfJ t his

he took with him to spend on the other
woman. Since the desertion she now

A MITCHELL CLUB
SAYS J. II: UPTON
. It la asserted by officers of the Young
Men's Regular Republican club, formed
last Friday evening in Justice of the
Peace Reid's office, that the organiza
tion has been placed In a false light
before the public. Jay H. Upton, presi
dent of the club, said today:
"As Its name implies, this Is a regu
lar Republican club. It will support
the regular Republican ticket at the
primaries, which means that It will
work In the interest of Roosevelt and
Mitchell. The Telegram article describ

ANCIENT DEED IS
. CAUSE OF TROUBLE
,i OnVmall deed has caused mora hard
work and exercise of cranial gray master
at the county recorder's office within
the last few days than any other dqcu
ment placed on file, for years. It is
a novel instrument, marking the transfe!
of property made in 1 862. 42 years ago.
Several interesting points are to be
settled before Chief Deputy McCord is
satisfied Just how and where to record
the paper.
The deed was j filed for record last
Monday by John WalRer. It shows that
for a "contribution" of $10. "duly re
ceived" by Oolbum Barrett, the former
ts "entitled to one lot In Mt. Crawford
cemetery-" The instrument bears date
of July 1, 162, and Is not sworn to.
When the ol.l man filed the deed, if
such It may properly be called, he ex
plained that it was Impossible to secure
a notarial affidavit, as no notaries were
to be found In Portland at that time. .
"Whether the deed Is binding without
an affidavit is what I am. not sure,'' aaid
McCord. "It is probable that the law
makes some provision for cases of. this
character. Then the next question Is
whore to record and Index the instru
ment; in other words to determine, its
specific class."
When Walker, who la probably ,70
years of age, filed the deed he was asked
why he delayed so long, -more than 40
years, and with a laugh explained that
he thinks himself .good for several years
more on earth and would not have re
corded the the Instrument when 'he did

A SWELL SHOWING
S. G. Yerkes, general western agent
for the Great Northern railway, withJ
headquarters Seattle,, was iu Portland
Saturday. He has been in this city many
times, but to use his own words. "I
enjoy my visits to Portland more and
more every time I come. I believe that
during' the month of June Portland is
one of the prettiest places In the United
States."
Mr. Yerkes was" on his way to San
Francisco. Pessimism Is a word with
out meaning to Mr. Yerkea. He is al
ways cheerful.
"I travel a great deal." he said, "but
I enjoy it. Of-course, there could be Im
provements in rail accommodation. Mod
ern transportation is .great, but there is
one thing that should be regulated and
that is the heat of the average Pullman
coach. It Is either too hot or toe cold.
The porter seems to have no idea of
how .to regulate his radiators , and venti
lators." , . -

whose accumulated wages would there
upon become forfeited. The contract
was duly carried out. The sailors, hav
lng deserted their ship, lost their wages
and were without redress.
In commenting upon the case Governor
Chamberlain said:
"I presumes there are many such In
stances. No doubt there are many hon
est ship wasters who deal fairly and
honorably with their crews and their
employers, but there are some who are
no better than the crimps with whom
they enter into conspiracy. Some of
these captains probably make it a reg
ular practice to get rid of their men
for the purpose of forfeiting their
wages. I have no doubt, too, that some
of them have an understanding with the
men from whom they buy the ship's
supplies, so that the captain gets a
rake-off. When I was district attorney
I found that a great many such abuses
existed in the shipping business."
The two vacancies on the sailor
boarding-house commission have not yet
been filled. The appointment rests with
the governor, the secretary of state and
the state treasurer.

' (Special Plapatrh to The Journal.)
Washington, D. C, Feb. 'It. Secre
tary Hay has addressed to all the pow

ond note dealing with the neutrality of
China and a desire to limit the area of
the Russo-Japanese hostilities.
This note merely states what had
been accomplished by his previous com
munications Initiating the international
effort for the preservation of China's
neutrality and sets forth the extent
which Russsia and Japan have agreed
to limit the field of wnr. This, as pre
viously stated, makes the battle-ground

Secretary Hoy does not suggest any
secondary step. He Is content with an

of Chinese neutrality. There will be

forth the Russlsan and Japanese an

Ten million dollars is the sum that
the Japanese of this country expect to
raise to help Japan In Its war with
Russia. A meeting of the Japanese
Royal association was held at 8 o'clock
Saturday evening at First and Couch
streets and from the advices that had
been received from other parts -of-the
country, especially from New York and
California, it is seen that a much larger
sum could be obtained than was first
thought of.
The association is composed of the
various societies that exist here to some
of which all of the Japanese residents of
America belong.
The Japanese government is not ask
ing its subjects here for money; it does
not need it. they say. It is an entirely
voluntary contribution on their part
and is made to show their loyalty to the
mother country. Should It become nec
essary a sum several times larger than
that now contemplated will be, raised.
All Japanese will contribute. There are
now about 1,600 Japanese in this state

About 400 of this number reside in

sum that any employed Japanese Is ex

Sunday morning a committee from the
Lewis and Clark exposition left for
Washington to assist the Oregon dele
gation in securing the passage by the
house of representatives of the bill
passed by the senate making an appro
priation - for the fair,
"We are assured of a handsome gov
ernment exhibit at the fair, one that
will cost in the neighborhood of half
a million dollars," said Director-Oeneral
Goode today, "but we want more than
that. We want the government not enly
to erect its own building and make Its
own exhibit, but we want it to provide
for buildings for the foreign countries
that will take part in the exposition, and
then besides these buildings we want
money for obtaining and installing for
eign exhibits and'for operating and
caring for them during the fair." Be
sides this we want an additional sum
which can be spent by the fair corpora
tion in generally enlarging the scope
and purpose of the exposition. .
"The matter was held up at our own
request The situation had become
somewhat mixed, and it was advisable
that Mr. Tawney and his committee
have full and complete Information of
the kind of falrwo.propose to have.
There seemed to be an idea that our
fair was" to be merely a. local matter,
and a disposition wss appearing to put
us on the same footing as Charleston
and Omaha. It was to correct these
erroneous ideas that we determined to
send a committee to Washington. It is
composed of H. W. Scott, president of
the fair corporation, and Whitney L.
Boise' of the original committee that
went to Washington some time ago,
and Oskar Huber, director of works. It
carries all the facts and figures pertain
ing to the exposition and will be ablo
to lay the matter before the house com
mittee in a proper manner. Mr. Huber
being director of works, can supply all
the statistical information desired. .... In
fact, they carried the complete plans
of the exposition with them when they
left.
"I am very sanguine that with the
additional Information this committee
can, supply the matter will be taken
up and passed by the house 'soon after
its arrival. Our right to ask for the
appropriation we want will be made
clear and I expect we will obtain the
Hdm'we ask for."

The board of education will hold a
special session -tomorrow morning at
10:30 o'clock to consider the question of
rebuilding the Park school and it h
said that the' majority of the members
are in favor of putting up another wood
en structure along the lines of the old
building, but somewhat Improved and
enlarged. It is argued by the conserva
tives that 4he conditions do not war
rant nor necessitate the district going
to the expense of a brick and stone
building.
The- district has realised something
like 125,000 from the Insurance and with
the addition of I1S.O00 from the regular
fund the board insists that a finely
equipped, thoroughly ventilated and hab
itable structure can be secured. As a
matter f fact that old school was the
poorest ventilated in the city and in the
new structure arrangements for an up-to-date
system can be completed.
The basement, foundation and a por
tion of the first floor of the old building
still stand and all this wilt mean a
srreat saving tin providing for a new
building according to contractors. It.
will lessen the cost ana materially re
duce the time it will take until the pupils
can be back in the same, quarters again.
At. present the contractors are at work
on half a dosen portables that are be

grounds and .six classes are accommo
dated in adjoining schools.
