When the men assembled to the feast
, the hall was In darkness. Some acci

and the town was in darkness. In a
short time the hall was lighted with gas
lamps and. the old-fashioned candles and
. the men filed Into the hall and began
-talking and taking their places' at the
, tables. The' scene was a very brilliant
.one. and when the banquet had started

Importance of the gathering.
- Mayor Grant B. Dlmlck filled the posi

good humor. He has a fund of keen
wit, and it never appeared to more advan

who responded to toasts can- testify to
this, as his introductory speeches were
I adorned with a little home truth and
cutting wit that went to the hearts of
the talkers and their listeners.
The banqueters had all been seated

'on the Rev. J, H. Wood to ask the bless

Honorable Apperson's topic waa 'The
Old Town." He told of the appearance
of Oregon City In an early day. and
'dwelt eloquently on the deeds of Dr.
'John McLaughlin: Mr. Apperson said
he came here In 1847, and had seen the
city grow much and predicted it would
grow more in the coming years. When
J, T. Apperson came" toOregon"CTty
there was not much of a town, all the
rest was fir trees. He alluded with much
feeling to the old Inhabitants, and ln-clos-ing
the entire company drank to their
memory, standing. Three cheers were
given for Mr. Apperson.
"Ths Taylor Trio" then sang a song.
The trio are -three youngsters from the
Arcade theatre, and have sweet voices.
They have just been engaged by the

Albany, Or., Feb. 26. The local
Chinatown was In a state of high ex-
Vltement last evening over an 'attempt
to kidnap sveral small children of the
lata Ban Wa, a Mongolian laundryman,
who died a few wepks ago. A Portland
Chinaman and A Chlnene woman from
the same city have been stopping In
Chinatown ever since the death of Ban
Wa, and the Utters widow has made
complaint several times that she feared
that her children would be sold Into
slavery by the pair from Portland. Very
little .attention, however, was paid to
her misgivings, as U did not appear pos
sible that such a high-handed outrage
.would be attempted. Mrs. Ban Wa snd
her brother continued to operate the
laundry owned by the deceased, and as
they had many friends, they have suc
ceeded In making a living. Last even
ing affairs reached a crisis when the
Portland heathens offered the mother
$500 each for her Ave daughters and de
manded that tho money be accepted. H
went so fsr as to threaten that in tho
event that the offer was refused he
would tske the girls from her without
a price. He wsa aseisted in terrorising

and his was the speech of the evening.
His topic "Pull Together,"- was sep
c tally appropriate. He remarked In very
forcible words that tha entertainment
of the evening would be intellectual. He
was heartily In favor of anything that
denoted progress for this city, and held
up tha Seattle people as an example of
"pull together." "We can do nothing
unless we pull together," ha said. "We
can do very little pulling unless we
have the push' behind us. I had a
pull once and lost It Tha push' was
not behind It Wa must have harmony
and work as one man." Mr. Moore's
speech was hailed with delight and fre
quent applause. .

topic, "The Lewis and Chirk Fair," was
very ably handled. . Te related his ex

Ignorance about tregon and advocated

J. E. Hedges and Dr. W. m Carll then
entertained the guests with the respec
tive overwhelming topics, "The Ethics
of the Medical Profession" and "The
Ethics of the Legal Profession." Their
treatment of the subjects was very
ludicrous and their talk was punctuated
with laughter. Dr. Carll said that the
lawyers, when at a gathering, were like
a German picnic. "Everyone calls the
other fellow a liar and there are no
casualties reported, but on the other
hand, when a crowd of doctors get to
gether It-la like an Irish picnic. When

8enator George C Brownell was Intro
duced to talk on 'The Land of Prom

gish look and introduced him aa "the
man of promises." The senator laughed,
but It was a home trust and the gather
lng finally composed Itself and listened
to one of the best short talks ever given
by Senator Brownell. His talk dealt
exclusively with the resources of the
county and the prospect In view.
Father Hillebtand responded to the
toast, "Sentiment." The father has a
very jovial personality and always talks
well and he made several "hits" that
were very well taken and to the point.
"He Who Runs May Read" was W. S.
URen's topic. He talked very ably on
tha needs of tha city -and county In the
way of general Improvement.
Hon. C. O. Latourette waa Introduced
and his toplo was "All Is Not Gold That

humor running all through Mr. Latour-

bursts of applause wherever It made its

H. F. Kelly followed with a brief out
line of "Civic Pride." He strongly ad
vocated the need of la beautiful park to

Judge T. F. Ryan, who spoke on 'The

the organisation of a board of trade and
said he would be one of the first to
buy stock. .... .
J. H. Westover was the last speaker
and his subject "The Stranger Within

exceedingly well delivered. Mr. West-

a charm In talking that Is not often

tention of the company, Captain Paul
says, to install a reduction plant aa soon
as pending litigation in the federal court
at Portland Is settled. The property haa
been held ud for some time by claim-
jumpers, but Captain Paul aays that he
has a strong case snd proposes to show
the jumpers where they stand. He says
that he will consider no sort of a com
promise, and that he Intends to fight the
case to a finish.
Mr. Paul says that he Intends to jput
In a small plant, one of about SO tons
daily capacity, and add to it according
to the needs of the property as develop
ment work la carried on. There Is suf
ficient ore in sight to keep a mill of this
size running for at least two years, but
it Is thought best to put in an inexpen

more money In development work, en

When seen, Mr. I
Keogh was very reluctant about giving

tinuing as follows:
The workings are now In ore car

one. being a true fissure vein, oi course,
the psoperty Is now in the development
stage, but tha showing is good, and
believe that It justifies extensive devel

make It a producer.

walked from the end of tho wagon road
to the mine, a distance of four miles,
on webs, without making a kick, or ex
pressing a regret that he was not In his

mounted a paid of skees and shot down
tho mountain side 400 feet In aa many
seconds. When found by tho rest of
the party his feet alone were visible,
the rest of his ample length being
jammed headforemost Into a snow bank.
