The Celebrated Actor Will Play "The

Mr. John Griffith and his company
I arrived in the city last night having
made the jump from Seattle yesterday.
With the company is a sixty foot car
load of scenery which will be used at the
opera house tonight in the production
of "The Avenger." This is Mr. Griffith's
first appearance here and the local man
agement is gratified at being able to
secure a date from him. As an actor in
his line Mr. Griffith bas few if any
equals. He first became known to fame
by his masterly rendition of Mephisto
in raust. I lie play which he presents
tonight is a stirring romantic drama of
the French school. It abounds with
startling situations and there is not a
dull moment in it. From a scenic point,
of view the play is remarkable. Mag
nificent scenery is carried and the piece
will be mounted in exactly the lame
sumptous manner that it was laBt week
at the Marquara. It is not often that a
performance of such proportions is given
here and the management should be en
couraged by a greeting to Mr; Griffith
from a crowded house. The supporting
company is very strong being headed by
Miss Kathryn Purnell, an actor of cele
brated ability and beauty.
Brazil Savage Dead.
Last Friday night at 10 o'clock Brazil
Savage died at his home in the Wamic
settlement, after a two-mouths sickneES
of an ailment which has baffled the
physician's tkill and which they have
failed to name.
Mr. Savage, who was 73 years of nge,
is very well known in the county, and
state as well, having crossed the piains
in M9. When his party of six reached
Salt Lake City they lost their bearing;
and came through the mountains. One
by one the members of the party dropped
by the way, until but two reached this
coast. Later Mr. Savage returned to
bis eastern home and again in "53
crossed the plains, in company with
S. M. Driver, father of T. J. Driver,
settling near Oregon City. Some years
after be came to Eastern Oregon, choos
ing Wamic as his home.
He leaves a wife, a son, who also lives
at Wamic, and three daughters, one of
the latter being married and living at
Sweet Home, Linn copnty. They were
all at bis bedside when he passed away.
The funeral took place yesterday at
WE ARE AWAKENING.
A Well Attended Meeting Held Bator
day Night Addressed by
G. J. ITarley.
There must have been fully 100 mem
bers of the club and citizens present at
the club room Saturday evening, drawn
there by a determination to unite in an
effort to devise means tor building op
our city and working for its beet in
terests. Judge Blakeley presided over the
meeting and stated that its object was to
in some way raise a bonns to be used in
inducing manufactures to start here
nd consider the best means to be em
ployed. He then called upon G. J.
Farley, who has given the subject careful
study of late, and had in mind several
plans, one of which Tog Chronicle re
ferred to last week. It was the idea of
asking each propertv owner on Second
street to give $1 for each front foot of
reality upon said street. The business
houses from $10 to $100 each. Profes
sional men, including lawyers, doctors,
dentists, insurance and real estate
agents, resident county officers and con
tractors, each $10. Householders in the
city from $1 to $2. Clerks and em
ployes, $1. Other resources, $1500. All
together a grand total of $15,000 could
thus be raieed. In speaking of this
proposition Mr. Farley said :
"First, we ask the property holders on
Second street to pot up $5,000. For
why? Because it represents the heaviest
and most valuable interests in our city.
Second, we ask the merchants to give
$5,000, because, on this proposition, they,
together with the holders of real estate,
on second street, represent the next
largest value to be benefited by this
A rough estimate of invested capital
on Second street in merchandise is not
The value of reality and improve
ments on Sec nd street is considerably
"Now if the merchants are willing to
pay $5,000, the realty not for a minute
should refuse to co-operate. Neither do
I think they will, and I have carefully
canvassed among the business men and
they will contribute their share.
"Let us look a little further upon this
proposition. If the town goes back,
who are the losers? The business men,
nine out of ten, could pack their stores
and move out with but a small loss.
The realty and improvements are a
fixed proposition, and cannot be trans
ferred." He then called attention to euch
places as Dallas, of about 3,000 in
habitants, which has six inanofactur
ing enterprises, each of them secured by
"rustling" and raising and giving
bonuses. Baker City, La Grande aud
Pendleton have secured their industries
in about the same manner;, Now, what
will The Dalles do? Will it profit by
the successful experiences of its
Mr. Farley seems to favor a furniture
factory as one of the best enterprises
which could be fostered here, and says
"Just the other day Portland added a
new industrv to their city, a furniture
factory, which when completed will em
ploy four hundred hands. How did
they get it? Tliey agreed to give a bonus
of $25,000. They went to work, but
were unable to raiee hut a little over
$17,000. They got the factory, even
with that amount. The Dalles is by far
better located for this kind of enterprise
than any other part of the state ot
Oregon, because the material can be
seasoned here acclimatically, and be'
cause we have, right in our own county.
for this purpose the best lumber in the
state. I have learned . lately through
another, that The Dalles couid have bad
this same enterprise here, on account of
its situation, at a much less sum than
was contributed in the city of Portland
And gentlemen, it I had my say as to
one specific purpose, if we should raise
this money, I-would by far prefer
furniture factory because it employs
great deal of labor and is generally
operated the year round."
The question as to the best means of
obtaining power was also discussed in
his paper; but it was thought advisable
to first obtain the bonus, and decide
these questions afterward.
Everyone listened intently to Mr
Farley, and at the close of his speech
Messrs. Crowe, Nolan, McCoy, Gouilay
Douthit, Dr. Sanders and others ex
pressed their opinions, some thoroughly
coinciding with the speaker; others ad
vaaced their theories; but all stating
emphatically that they see the im-j
' portancd of something
being done at
A committee, consisting of G. J.
Farley, E. Schanno, L. E. Crowe, E. C.
Pease and A. Bettingen, was appointed
to canvas the matter thoroughly and
meet with the principal property owners
to devise the best means
to be rued to
j the desired end.
We hope the matter will be pushed
with vigor and not be dropped, as have
others previously.' With a chairman so
alive to the question, and other mem
bers of the committee consisting of
energetic business men, surely the in
terests of the city are in good handB; but.
they must receive the co-operation of
every citizen. Will they receive it? "
