Wo have the assurance that
St. Johns will have another thea
tre building, and on a larger and
grander scale than any other the
city now possesses. Monday
afternoon C. A.Metzger, manager
of the People's Amusement com
pany, visited this ofllce nccom-
panicu uy ma iirumii-u., uu
stated that negotiations had prac
tically been completed for the
erection of a theatre in St.jJohns,
and that within the next fort
night work would bo under, way.
The new building, he stated,
would be two and one-half stories
high, not less than 50x100 in
size; that it would be devoted
entirely to theatre purposes; and
that it would be of concrete con
struction with a white tile front,
.and finished in an elaborate
manner throughout. The total
cost, ho said, would not bo less
than $30,000.
The theatre will be devoted
principally to vaudeville and
traveling shows, although mov
ing pictures will also be shown.
Mr. Metzgcr remarked that the
People's Amusement company
had long had an eye on St. Johns,
and that negotiations had been
pending for several months,
which now had about been satis
factorily terminated. However,
ho declined to state just where
it would be constructed, except
that it would be on Jersey street
in the business district. He stat
ed that his company now owned
twenty-five theatres in different
parts of the country, and that
they had a good circuit attract
ion of their own, which will be
put on here. If it comes to pass
that this structure will be erect
ed, as Mr. Metzger has given
assurance, it will prove a sub
stantial and ornamental addition
to the business district of St.
Johns.
Will Change Locations
C. C. Currin, tho enterprising
pharmacist, will occupy new
' quarters tho finjt of March. He
has secured tho room in tho Hol
brook building formerly occupied
by T. P. Ward, and it will be
made over into one of tho finest
pharmacies in tho Northwest.
A now front will bo placed, with
French pinto glass and pretty
trimmings. The interior will bo
handsomely embellished in white
tile and other decorations. No
expense will be spared in adding
to its attractiveness nnd conven
ience. Tho namo of tho phar
mncy will bo changed from tho
North Bank Pharmacy to "Cur
rins For Drugs." Mr. Currin
has found his present quarters
too cramped to permit of tho dis
play nnd stock of goods that ho
desires to carry, nnd tho more
commodious room will afford him
tho opportunity he has long de
sired of possessing ono of tho
finest nnd most modernly ap
pointed pharmacies to bo found
anywhere.
Finest in the State
The postoffico inspector visited
St. Johns last week and ho stated
that St. Johns has. without doubt,
the finest postoffico of any in
tho state. The office is most con
veniently arranged. A thirty day
clock adorns the wall, various
cabinets, tables and lockers, all
of oak, are conveniently arranged
so that no time is lost in finding
what is desired. Convenience
and attractiveness is the keynote
to tho entire office, and expense
has been lost sight of in making
it as fine as money and skill
can make it. St. Johns should
feel proud of its new postoffice
and also of the enterprise of Dr.
McChesney, the owner of the
buliding, in making it so con
venient and attractive.
Conferences have been held
looking to the arrangement of
dates for a "Country Life Fort
night" in Portland during the
Fall and Winter months when
dairy show, land show, stock
exhibits, gatherings of horticul
turists, creamerymen, wool
growers, poultry and goat rais
ers, florists and similar organi
zations will be held. In this way
it is thought meetings of interest
to farmers can be grouped so
that events in similar lines can
be held simultaneously, or fol
lowing each other, and those in
terested can attend them all
without losing much time from
their duties at home.
Work (or a Greater St Johns.
The following paper was read
by Mrs. J. N. Keeler at the
Mothers' meeting at the Library
Monday afternoon :
Tho subject under discussion
today is one of so great import
ance that 1 feel that I can scarce
ly do it justice, but I sincerely
wish I could arouse mothers to
see just where their responsibil
ity lies? First, 1 will ask the
question: What is this White
Slave Traffic of which tho world
is ringing today V Is it some new
form of vice? No, it dates back
as far as the time of Babylon.
when her terrible wickedness
and vice led to tho downfall of
that beautiful city. Even then
wo see the hand of God in the
swift vengeance taken on that
city. So today wo should strike
just as boldly, for this is one
question on which all nations can
unite. In tins day and age no
young girl is safe; from fourteen
on is the dangerous age. A
prominent judge of Portland savs
lie has more girls brought before
him for immorality at this time
than at any other. The girl at
this time is just budding into
womanhood, her form is chang
ing, her ideas, she begins to
loam of her nowcr to attract the
opposite sex, decks herself in all
kinds of jewelry and furbelows,
becomes more or less independ
ent of her mother. Then it is,
O mothers, watch over her; see
that tho host of life is put before
her: be careful where she goes
and with whom she associates:
place before her only tho best of
reading (some of the late fiction
is not fit for older people, let
alone young girls.) First of nil,
make a companion of your girl.
Talk freely to your children of
the mysteries oi lifo and at an
early age. Let them feel freo to
como to you with questions,
and do not turn them away.
Talk just as freely with the boy,
for I believe ho will never po
free of this cuwe-until wo can
tench tho boy to shun and abhor
such places. I believe more girls
havo gone wrong lrom pnrenis
paying no attention to where
they nre going than for any other
reason, ino madams wno pro
cure those girls are constnntly
on tho watch for girls whose par
cnts are careloss and indifferent
to what they nro doing, lheso
traffickers in human lifo nro to
bo found ovorywhoro- no plnce,
however good, is freo from them.
Not long ago ono of those mad
ams joined ono of tho leading
churches of Portland, nnd before
it wns d scovcrcd who sho was,
had under tho cloak of religion,
secured a great infiuenco over
tho inr a. but. fortunately, .she
was found out before any serious
harm had been done. They are
also to bo found in tho stores.
Ono of them entered ono of our
lead ner drug stores, bought an
article of n young girl, told her
she wns too pretty to bo working
behind u counter.nnd if slio would
como with her sho would find her
a place whero she could have the
finest of clothing. Tho promise
of fino clothes is n great power
of attraction to tho young girl.
Tho moving picture show is an
other source of downfall, not
that the show of itself is bad
but that tho influence at work
here, The white slavers gather
here and watch for tho silly,
vain girl and begin with flirting
with her, and little by little lead
her on until ruin is accomplish
ed. Then, rather than face her
parents and friends, sho enters
this den of vice nnd becomes
dead to the world. This explains
tho disappearance of hundreds
of girls. After they enter these
dens it is almost impossible to
escape, for all street clothing is
taken away from them. In Chi
cago alone there are over 5000
women leading a life of shame,
and it is found that only about 40
par cent enter this life of their
own free will. This shows that
sixty per cent are led into it by
some scheme, entrapped and sold.
And at least two-thirds of this
number are from our own coun
try, being inveigled from towns,
farms and countries.
Think of it! The slavery of
war times was as nothing com
pared with THIS slavery. I be
lieve the foreigners coming into
our country, especially the
Greeks, are a curse and menace
to it. One-half of the white slav
ers who have been convicted
here in Portland have been
amoncr the Greeks. The knowl
edge of this evil has become so
. t xi i. t .1 ;ri
wiuespreaa mat it manes u uuii
cult to secure the girls, conse
quently the price for them is
very high and tney are now vai
ued in the thousands.
And now I am going to relate
No. 5 To F. P. Drinker to
erect a garage on Buchanan
street between Stafford and Jer
soy; cost $200.
u little incident that happened
here in Portland, for I believe
we can get a better lesson of
white slave methods from what
we see with our own oyes than
what we have read. This mother
had a family of nine, and in
stead of teaching the girls to
work and take an intere3t in the
home, she allowed them to roam
the streets at will. Tho girl at
1G went out to work and remain
ed at the place only two or three
weeks, and then left under the
influence of a woman she nnd
her chum took up their abode in
n Portland hotel. Tho lady who
had charge of tho hotel called tho
mother un nnd told her sho
'thought she ought to come and
look after her girl, as alio had
overheard a conversation be
tween tho parties concerned, and
she felt that nil was not well.
The mother called the girl up,
and she told her mother that sho
ought to know that everything
was all right, that she was just
staying there till she could get
another place, so the mother,
instead of investigating, left the
girl alone. Soon the papers
were full of tho disappearance
of tho girl, detectives woro put
on her track, but could find no
trace of her. Finally Mrs. Bald
win traced her to a house of ill
fame in Tho Dalles, where she
had been placed by two chauf
fers, one of them posed as her
lover. In the meantime the life
had be como so distasteful to tho
girl that she came homo of her
own accord, barely ablo to drag
herself along. All four of the
part'es were taken beforo tho
cou, but nt tho first trial they
col' d not got tho girl to testify
against them. They wero mys
tified thut so young ajrirl could
bnfFlo them nt" every turn, but
Inter she wns taken to tho hos
pital nnd nn operation wns per
formed for a loathsome disease
that sho had contracted and the
nurse found a code of signals
that tho chauffer hud sent for
the second trial. She was to
watch him; if ho put his hand to
his face sho wus to answer yes,
if down, no. As soon as sho
was able, an aunt took tho girl
homo with her an kept her
away from everybody until tho
second trial. In tho meantime
tho white slavers wero doing ev
erything that could bo done to
get hold of the girl, called the
parents up at all times of night
and day, threatened them, even
put boards up to tho windows
and peeped into the house so
sure wero they the girl must be
there. In tho second trial the
girl's fear of tho men was over
come and sho testified against
tho two chauffers who when they
found they could not save them
selves pleaded guilty and this let
them off with a light sentence
of ono year and $250 fine, and no
way did sho complicate tho wo
man although tho judge Baid he
thought thoy wero just as guflty.
The woman who ran the house
was a handsome girl of only 18
and as sho laughed in their faces,
said they could send her up for
ten years and when she came
out would Btill bo young woman
and would go back in the same
business. Mrs. Baldwin said in
this resort were a number of
Portland trirls who would not
give their real names and in all
"..-l.t.flSi.f t 1 .1! .l
proonuuiucs nuu uiHUijj-m u
from their homes and wero
mourned as lost. From this
tragedy there are four lessons to
be learned first, interest your
girl in the homej second, know
where she is going, and with
whom sho is associating; third,
warn her never to accept candy,
favors or rides with a stranger;
lastly beware of the woman who
pretends to take an interest in
the girl nnd wants to take her
away.
Such tragedies as this are hap
pening all over the country. It is
time for decent people to wake
up, realize what is going on and
take measures to protect their
daughters and neighbors' daugh
ters. I will close this paper
with a strong appeal to the
mothers to rise in the dignity of
their motherhood and to give to
the child the protection that she
should be her heritage,
Don't forget to register. The
books are now open at the city
hall. Don't wait until the last
minute.and then forget all about
it. Do it now as soon as you
have read this reminder. La
dies, don't be bashful.
Perhaps more than anything
else, do clothes serve as a medi
um for woman's self expression,
and to denote to a very large ex
tent, her individuality. Indeed,
most often women are judged by
the clothes they wear, and the-
general estimate of her character
and degree of refinement, is
high or low, according to the
tone of her clothes.
Much talk there is now from
the leading fashion artists and
coutouriers, about the necessity
of making clothes suitable to
one's individuality, instead of
just merely following the stylo
of tho moment, regardless of the
important fact as to whether it
is becoming or not.
The simplo little dresses now
worn so much afford splendid
opportunities for introducing an
odd touch hero and there, a re
verse cut or shaped a hit uncom-
monTy, or an fnsct panel quaint
ly used, and thereby unmistaka
bly adding that which lifts it
from tho commonplacc.and lend
ing a tone of originality, which
is quite desirable.
The first dress illustrated here
is remarkable for the number of
striking features that charac
terize it. and mako it at once
smart, stylish and decidedly
unique. Of course tho material
employed also plays a great part
in tho general effect, as for in
stance, in this case, thcro is a
very attractive and harmonious
combination of color and so on.
Ribbed or corded cilk in taupe is
used with Persian silk for the
inset panel of tho skirt, applied
yoke of the waist and also for
tho cute little Hohespiorro collar
and dainty little turn-back cuff.
Isn't it chic.
Tho other simplo yet charm
ing model looks exceedingly noat
and becoming in any of the soft
woolen small check fabrics or
homespun ratine and velveteen
can bo used very effectively with
a dark shade of satin for the odd
ly shaped collar that extends
into the graceful long rovors.
The chemisette that is worn
with this dress is rcmovablo and
can bo made of net, allovor or
Bohemian lace. lor afternoon
wear under the long top coat
nothing could bo better.

The McMinnville High school
team defeated the James John
team by the score of thirty to
twelve, in a basketball game last
Saturday evening. This team is
out for the state championship,
and seem in a fair way to win it.
They outweigh tho James John
boys by several pounds to the
nuin, and, in addition to this,
they showed a greater knowl
edge of the game. They are the
fastest team that has visited St.
Johns this year. However.Jamcs
John still claims the Columbia
River Championship, for Mc
Minnville defeated our keenest
rivals for that honor, Clatska-

suffered Saturday night. Mc-
Minnvillo's coach is a lornier U.

At the regular meeting of the
city council Tuesday evening, at
which all members were present,
City Attorney Stroud read an or
der of the Railroad Commission
relative to the water rate situ
ation in St. Johns. The first
hearing took place in the rooms
of the Commission in the County
Court House Saturday last, and
the order was the outcome. It
suspends tho water rate ordi
nances passed bythe city dur
ing the time the case was pend
ing before the Commission, and
also stays any criminal action
instituted for violation of tho
rate ordinance until the commis
sion had decided the case. Ital-
so'advised payment of tho old
rates from tho date of the hear
ing, and if the Comission finds
that" they are .exorbitanffand
makes a new rate, the wutcr.com-
nnnv will bo foiced to refund the
difference to the paying patrons.
The' city attorney statedlthat the
city had gained'great advantage
by this ruling, thut there was a
possibility that tho Commission
wouldrmako .the rates even lower
than tho city had attempted ,to
do.fand that'hislunderstanding.of
it was that the patrons who had
not paid for water between the
pasage of the ordinance in Sep
tember to February 1st, need
only nay tho' rates for that period
prescribed by tho council. A

Somite. Out of the 89-1 Congres
sional Districts in tho United
State, tho largest appropriation
carried in the bill is for tho
Portland, Ore., district, amount
ing to $1,060,000.
Tho City Attorney has made
an explanation of the City's po
sition in the water controversy,
which we quote below:
Tho following is the Order en
tered by the Railroad Commis
sion upon the first day of Febru
ary,iyi3: "Upon hearing this day had
in this cause, the parties being
present by their respective at
torneys, it is now here, upon
mutual agreement of both par
ties to this cause, ORDERED
that upon the conditions hereaf
ter set forth Ordinances Num
bers 502 nnd 522 of the city of
St. Johns, prescribing water
rates, bo and are hereby tempor
arily suspended from this date.
"That the defendant Company,
upon tho fixing of n rate by this
Commission, shall refund to any
and all consumers who have paid
the rates prescribed by Ordi
nance No. 16 the difference be
tween tho rates so paid under
Ordinance No. 16 and the rates
prescribed by the Commission,
from the date of this agreement
to the date of the fixing of a rate
by the Commission, such pay
ment and all proceedings under
this Order to bo without preju
dice to any rights which the de
fendant may havo or claim under
Ordinance No. 16 nnd without
prejudice to tho rights which
the plaintiff may claim under Or
dinances Numbers 502 and 522.
or to any rights of either party,
it being expressly understood
that this order is entered on
stipulation of the parties as a
matter of temporary compromise
and adjustment only."
This Order was entered in or
ler to save the costs of litigating
2 suits involving the same ques
tions at tho same time. Under
this Order the people should pay
tho old rates of tho Water Com
pany from February first on, ami
the Company is under the duty
