Juvenile rourt la a report to 'Judge Bro-
naugh. - Moat ' of the persona placed
under parole In the circuit court report
to Mr, Teuscher. and his axnarienoa since
Beptmber, J0, enables him to make
Instructive comment on the ' results
. Mr. -Teuscber Is strongly In favor of
the parol system, and points out that
only seven out of, it prisoners paroled
nava violated th confidence that was
placed In them.
According to. the experience of Mr.
Teuscher thos most, likely to break
parole re footloose men without family
or property and thea should be required
to give a small. Donq conditioned upon
their good behavior, In the opinion of the
probation officer. , The photographing of
ail paroled prisoners he suggests as an
other aid to the. probation officer and
restraint upon tbs probationer.-.
In the;-matter of expense the repot
states mot ir the rive men who were
hortorably discharged last year had been
confined In the penitentiary but on
year each, the expense to the state
would . have been" greater than If
Well paid officer had looked after them
duWng that v time. The system there
fore saves expense to the taxpayer and
the stigma of disgrace to many who
would . otherwise have to become con
victs. ' .
The report" also suggests the-advisability
of setting; aside at least aa large
a sum of money to be advanced to the
paroled prisoner as a loan as would be
required to carry him to the penitent
uary.. a aouar, 11 is pointed out. fre
quently saves a man from going- to the
bad after bis release.
The report commends the provisions
of the Oregon law stating; that prisoners
snati not oe paroled to their friends and
attorneys, but to a member of the Ore
gon Prisoners' Aid association, who will
keep In close touch with the probationer
hliftself. Tha- report closes by saying
that men who plead guilty to a crime
because they know' a defense would
be Useless are not always worthy of
a parole system. - - -

If any of th older generation of
Portlandera visit 'The, Man of ; the
Hour" at th Bungalow' this week they
may hav difficulty In recognizing their
old friend. Tom Guise, the grand opera
singer, In th character of th scheming
anS heartless financier, , Walnwrtgrht.
Ir. Outs began his grand opera
back in th early eighties with Emma

was known as th most useful grand H l) I J LIS till DlAlio AT
.opera man In America. a If any
thing happened to anyone" It was
"Send for Tom Guise," for h could play
from two to three to four part In all
of the current operas.
It has been hie misfortune to see
grand opera steadily lose ground In
this country from the time when three
or four srrand opera companies were
touring the . country and making ' money
to the present day when a good grand
opera company played to practically
a handful of people In Denver a short
time ago and has since broken up be
cause of bad business. v.
"The wane of interest and the lack
of education .In music In the last 30
years Is lamentable," said Guise. "There
are now only three music centers, Bos
ton, New Tork.. Chicago and San Franr
claco and. outside of , two or three, of
the "grand operas. people. In general do
hot know or care anything about them
Concerning th extraordinary effect
upon the audience of some of the great
song poems that Wullner will slug to
night at Masonic temple, West Park and
Yamhill, Pan, in the Montreal of October
"The audience was frankly surprised.
Nobody knew what to make of this ex
traordinary interpretative singing at
first. But after they had listened to the
passionate wall of the deserted lover in
"Thou Lovest Me Not." and shuddered
at the imaginative tragedy of "Der Dop
pfelganger." the . power, the gseatness,
the mystery and the marvel of this new
singer's art became more and more eas
ily to be comprehended, left its impres
sion more deeply upon thorn, and
aroused among them to such an intensity
of enthusiasm as has not been witnessed

through clgrarctte smoking, but the love
of opera still remains and he has only
entered the ranks of the dramatic ac
tors from necessity.. His first dramatic
engagement was with Charles Froman
in 'The Girl I. Left Behind. Me."
Mr. Guise .nade his stag debut some
thing Ilka 27 years ago with Lillian
Russell and Jlmmle Powers In the mus
ical comedy, "Fu" In a Photograph
Gallery." Slnca then he nas been with
DeWolf Hopper four years,. Francis
Wilson two years, 'Tlvoll Opera com
"PW"'iff ffa ff'WjfiHgpt6ur,'"foars;
and his visit to Portland before this one
was made as Interlocutor with Richard
and yelling like maniacs. "Wullner Is
not only a singer, he Is an Incomparable
artist, a man who feels every emotion
depleted In the songs he sings,"
Th great program to be presented
ronignt includes auch a reast of song
as has probably never before been given
to a Portland audience masterpleoes
by 8chubert, Brahms (Wullner's Intl
mate friend), Hugo Wolf. R. Strauss and
Schumann. All of these will be found
in both German and English, on the
program. The pianist who accompanies
Tvuiiiici, vuiiiuu dub, is aiso one or tne
worid'a greatest artists.
