London. Pec. II. Tho old-fashioned
stv! of celebrating Christmas, with the
.:w:l!ig' log in the fireplace, the merry
rrnnily seated around the festive board,
which is groaning under Its load of
inice viands. Including such delicacies
ii boar's head venison and plum pud

their families to some fashionable sea

Javs amid the discomforts of crowded
hotel life; and the poor stay at-bome

their means and taste, but thero are no
yule logs nor any of the famed ac

The royal household, still In moarninr
for the late King Edward, will spend
the holidays in a comparatively quiet
manner, The king and queen and the
members of tho royal family will cele
brate Christmas "en fainllle", at York
Cottage, their charming estate in Nor
folk. Although quietly . and un
ostentatiously,.; elaborate preparations
have been made for. the yuletide cele
bration, there will be plenty of . good
tilings for the table,; including boar's
head and cygnet and a liberal supply
at plum pudding, ' made In accordance
with the famous recipe' preserved in
the royal family for more than a cen
tury. There will te presents for all
mpmbers of the family, a family gath
ering arounfl the Christmas tree in the
hall and a distribution of presents to
the retainers of the king's estate. j
King Edward loved to have a number
of intimate friends around him at the
yuletide season and invariably had a
large house party at Sandringham at
that time, but King George, limited by
the rules of mourning etiquette, will
forego the pleasures cf a gathering of
congenial friends this Christmas, what
ever he may choose, to do in the fu
ture. " ' -' ' '
Trade Hot TJp To Maik.
Christmas trade was not quite .so
brisk as last year, owing to the un
nettled condition of things caused by
the excitement of the political campaign
and the industrial strikes and disturb
ances which have considerably reduced
the purchasing power of , the 'poorer
working classes. The demand for toys
and other holiday goods of a cheaper
grade has been larger in comparison
than for soma holiday seasons past.'.

"The ' council ought to call Mr.
Josselyn's bluff." said City Attorney
Grant yesterday afternoon, following
the adjournment of a special commute
session at which the street railway
president and other officials were pres
ent The corporation head had told the
committee that he boiieved the council
should revoke railway franchises when
ever the company violated the term of
its agreement with the city, v
The statement wa made by Mr,
Joaselyn in the course of an argument
that arcse between him and Councilman
Rushlight as to the right of the street
car 'company to abandon portions of
track at the company's pleasure. "
At the conclusion of tho conference
the committee instructed the city audi
tor to make a report showing- tb total
amount of street improvement assess
ments involved in the proposed abandon
ment by the Portland Railway Light &
Power company of a number of streets
on which it baa franchises. The most
important of these is the East Twenty
eighth street franchise,
r-.--.x Abandons rranchlse. ri- ; v
When the city built the reenforced
concrete- bridge across Sullivan's gulch
on that street the car company aban
doned its franchise, saying it had the
right to do so without the consent or
the city council. If compelled to pay
its share of the cost of the bridge the
company would have (to expend about
$15,000. It la believed by residents
who would be served by a carllne across
the viaduct that the railway system
would have been extended to their sec
tion of the city before now If the com
pany had not wished to evade the pay
ment of its assessment for the con
struction of the bridge.
On motion of Councilman Menefee the
committee instructed the city attorney
to prepare an ordinance assessing the
cost of the bridge in order that he may
have ground to bring suit against the
company in case it should refuse to pay
the assessment
Would Fay Share.
"The street car company will never
object to paying a share of the cost
of the bridge If it should decide to use
the span," declared President Josselyn.
"But we have not yet completed plans
for the extension of our system across
Sullivan's gulch in that direction, and
do not know at this time whether we
will want to use the bridge or not
'There seems to be an idea that the
company ,;has adopted the method , of
abandoning street In order to avoid
paying for improvements. This is a
mistake. The question of abandonment
Is decided simply by the utility of the
road. : We are seeking to give the pub
lic, a maximum of service and in order
to do this we are constantly making
changes. These changes are warranted
by oun franchises. ,If we violate the
terms of the franchises , the council
should revoke them. But the company
la too broadmiaded to abandon a street
just to escape paying for. part ot
street Improvement" v 1 Vr? At,
"F. V. Holman, attorney for the horn
pany, warned City Attorney Grant that
if the city should attempt tq bring the
question of the right to abandon fran
chises into the courts, it would take
several years to decide the matter.
, Despite the fact that New Tear's eve
this year comes . on Saturday night
reservations already made in the various
grillrooms and hotels indicate that Port

The prospects are that within a few
days all available tables will bo re
served at charges varying from IS. to 5

At another hotel grill ' it was said
this morning , that a charge of 5 per
person was being made, and that unless
one hurried they would not be able to
get In at all. Still another grill la mak

supposed to cover the first outlay for

Portland will probably spend around
$20,000 for Its New Tear's celebration
thi year, t Saloonkeepers say that it is
a poor bar which does not take In at
least $100 for the evening, and there are
419 of them. Some of the pretentious
downtown bars figure on putting from
$500 to $2500 in the cash registers, for
wine is high and is quickly consumed..
These estimates take In consideration
the fact that the bars must close an
hour earlier than they would If New
Tear day did not come on Sunday. In
the gnus H will not make so much dif
ference. There the Saturday night cus
tom will be followed. A few minutes
before tho closing hour the patrons may
order as much liquor as they desire, to
last them half an hour, an hour or two
hows, as their thirsts may dictate.
Last year the Average spent for every
patron of a grill was about $10, but
champagne this year is higher, and
bubble water is opened on New Tear's
eve as on no other occasion. ' Three

C. C. Chapman, manager of the Port
land Commercial club, spoke very enter
tainlngly last night at the Lincoln' High
school, explaining what he understood
by the word "Personality."
Mr, Chapman stated that "personalfly
Is something that can be cultivated by
every Individual to any degree." He
defined personality as "the winning
quality that springs from within," hence
personality Is not the outward appear
ance of the man, but the real Inner man.
He said personality could be cultivated
in two ways, first by being true to the
best that 1 in one's self, and second by
anowing consideration for somebody
else. Truth toward one's self, he said,
