theater tomorrow. When he removed
to Zlon City last spring It was believ
ed that his regular Sunday "ram

money flowed more freely Into his
coffers from tho Chicago nudiences
that packed the big hall than is the
case at Zlon City. However this may

Portland, Sept. 6. Charles S. Fee,
general passenger and ticket agent of
the Northern Pacific at St. Paul,
passed through the city early this
morning on the way to Seaside, where
his family has been spending the
summer. Mr. Fee is pleased wnn tne
great volume of business being done
in the, Northwest and the wonderful
evidences of improvement and pro
gress being made. The Northern Pa
cific is having the biggest passenger
and freight run of business Irpm this
section ever known.
In speaking of tho subject of set
tiers from the East who will take ad
vantage of the low rate offered by
the roads, Mr. Fee thinks that there
will be the greatest rush to Oregon
and Washington ever experienced.
There will be a rush of people who
are coming .to make a home and who
have means to do so. He thinks the
future of the Northwest Is an assur
ed repetition of the past few years of
growth and progress.

Fltzslmmons' Prayer.
Fltzslmmons, the prlzo lighter, lius
been mado somowliat of a butt, for
ridicule because in referring to his
recent defeat In the prlzo ring he
"I prayed to win HiIb fight. It was
tho flrst tirifo I over prayed to win.
I lay In that room and prayed: 'Ood
give mo strength to win this battle,
and I will ho thankful'. Amen."
Thcro does seem to bo a false ring
about that. But why should It be
any more Incongruous for a prize
lighter to pruy with sporting zeal for
dlvlno strength to "slug" his adver
sary, than for a clergyman to pray
with patriotic fervor for military vic
tories? Is it so much inoro religious
to kill than to "slug?" San Francis
