A few days ago a stranger ap

some excitement by calling loudly
for the chief of police. In the

had the man lodged in jail, where
ha raved about losing his wife and
children in the San Francisco fire,
and then talked aimlessly at every
imaginable subject. The fellow
gave his name as Dantor, and his
age as 56. He was bordering on
delirium tremens, but has since
sobered up and talks more rational
ly. However, be no longer talks of
having I03t a wife or child, and the
opinion prevails that he is a wan
derer, with no particular end or
a:m m 119 but drink.

At the uext general election in Oregon,
woman sufferage will again be placed
before the people to say whether the
want it or not. Advocates of women
suffrage say that woman needs a vote
to right the wrougs she suffers at the
hands of man. Ad a matter of fact, the
rights of women are looked after more
carefully under the laws ef most states
than those of men. Men realize the
fact that women as a whoole are less able
to take care of themselves . and their
property than mea are. Men can, and
will, if necessary flzht for their lives and
and property. (Vomen cannot, hence.
men naturally protect them. This sit
uation is extremely distasteful to women
suffragists, but angry protests cannot
In the last fifty years great progress
bas been made in the condition of women
in this country as regards education and
opportunity of employment and the en
joyment of life. This condition, how
ever, has not been due to the agitation
fjr womea suffrage, as its advocates
would haye you believe. The states
where women have made the most -pro
gress are those in which wo men suffrage
bills have beei most steadily and de
cisively defeated. There has been but
slight improvement, if any, in the laws
of the states where women vote, due
altogether to the fact of that vote.
If the suffrage movement were .to
disband today and no woman ever vote,
not a single great interest would suffer.
Oa the other hand were woman's suffrage
granted in Oregon, it would set the
state back for mauy years. 44.

Owing to the unreasonable demands
of a frenzied landlord, Eilers Piano
House has reluctantly decided lo abandon
the retail piano and organ business in
Portland. Continuance would mean
the payment of practically the entire
earnings of oar retail business for rent, nor
would it even then secure the urgently
needed alterations and repairs that the
growth of our business has made neces
sary. The owners arrogantly refuse to
make them, and we cannot afford to
undertake them for the reason they will
not enter into a lease except from
month to month.
Thus it is that Eilera Piano House is
compelled to retire from the retail field,
and as possession of the premises is to be
delivered np on May 31 next, the entire
stock of goods, the finest, most exten

States mast be disposed of before that
