Steinway Upright
Piano Brings $580
at Auction ::::::
(From "The Music Trades")
The value of a name, also quality, in a piano was
shown at an auction sale in one of the. well known
auction warerooms in New York city last Saturday.
A Steinway piano, one of tho smallest file manufac
tured by the Steinway house twelve or fifteen years
ago, No. 85,802, brought $680. This was the auction of
the furniture from a private house and was in the
usual course of business of the auction house. When
a second-hand piano over twelve years old will bring;
a price liko this it certainly proves that name value
and quality count for something to say nothing of
what such second-hands represent In live assets.

Arizona. Steinwuy PlfWOf |sfs to $1660, RUiiranteed New York prices,

Some Women
OKI-: day last week I lie cable brought
ii i from London new.s of the
death of Lottie Collins. The an
nouncement created scarcely more
than a ripple ol Inte^ett. Who was
Lottie Collins and why should her
deatli lie chronicled? Thai was the
query the newspaper telegraph edi
tors put to themselves, and being un-
able to answer it satisfactorily most
ol them threw (hi- item on the II \
■lit ;i short two decades agO Lottie
Collins was the. Idol of the Krilish and
American public, in a. ni^ht she sprang
from an obscure position in one .if the
London hails to fame, ami prosperity.
The medium of her success was a
silly sons, composed by Henry J. Say
ers, a, performer In the old Thatcher's
minstrels and which had not made any
particular hit, until misb Collins
chanced upon it ami sung it in Lon
don.
Within a weeu the pity was humming
the ditty. Lottie Collins became the
rage and "Ta-ra-ra faoom iv-ay" was
heard oftener than "Rule Britannia."
In a month the slnger'a salary jumped
from $-0 a week to |600. Then Charles
Frohman engaged her foi America at
"Jiooo weekly, a tremendous salary for
those days, and not to lie. sneezed at
even now.
Lottie Collins mad* her New York
debut Baptember in, imil\ She had been
loudly heralded and .she made good.
Vaudeville wasn't so important then,
and consequently Miss Collins did her
"turn" between the acts of "Jane," a
comedy running at that time at tho
Standard theater. Subsequently ><lvi
toured over ihe greater part of the
counttry under trrohman management,
and everywhere she proved a great
Bucceas.
An .i soii Ta-in-iH. iwimi D«-o.y"
didn't amount to much, but as Hung by
Lottie Collins It was a coup de the
atre. When she Bang:
'Tin a blushing hud of Innocence,
I'm not too \,,u\ and I'm not too Rood,"
she looked tho very picture of mis
chievous girlhood, but hi a twinkling
of her tip-tilled toes, In a swish of
Silken skirts and a glimpse of silken
hosiery ingenuous innocence was
turned Into Ingenious deviltry; anil the
dance which followed, with its explo
sive "Boom De-ay" from tho baas
drum, never railed to win enthusiastic
plaudits.
Later Miss Collins repeated her suc
cess with another song-, "Daddy
Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow-wow." Now
she Is dead. She outlived her popu
larity, however, and very few persons
who read of her demise in the news
papers even remembered who Lottie
Collins WES. In private, life the iier
former was Mi's. Samuel P. Cooney.
She retired from the stage five years
ago.
Miss LOlllSfl (iaylord of Chicago
bears the distinction of being too first
brlda wooed and won i>y wireless tele

ter P. nillingham, and whose home
hereafter will ba Iti Honolulu, was mar
rled the other day in Floronoe, Italy,
tba reromony being performed nt the
home of her uncle, Arthur M. Acton.
Leading up to the marriage was a
courtship replete with romance, nnd in
which n certain Slfc'nor Marconi admin
istered first aid to the little blind god
of Love.
With her inorTicr .Miss l^iylord de

for a trip around the world. In Hon
olulu she met Mr. pillingham. It was
it case of mutual love at first Bight, hut
tho Honolulu man. though inoßt assidu-
OUS In his attentions, failed to ask the
momentous question and the visitor
sailed away, en route to Chicago.
Then Mr. Dilllngnatn began to up
braid himself for his hesitancy. Final
ly he could wait no longer, and so In
voked the aid of the most startling of
modern Inventions—wireless telegra

another message of Just one word

Mine AHa'Nazlmova, the. day's most
distinguished Interpreter of Ibsen's
women, has Just declared that the
great Norwegian has been woefully
misunderstood. Doubtless you yourself

Is the public, the great, stupid public,
which doesn't recognise life when it
sees it, and which insists upon reading
into Ibsen's plays a false symbolism
which the author never put into them.

that we did not understand Ibsen, Who
have been unable to prate learnedly of
his "cryptic psychology," whatever

looking for landmarks which did not
exist when, as a matter of fact, our
destination lay in plain sight, straight

In this ace of voluminous utterance
Concerning the nature, the destiny, the
rights and the wrongs of woman, there
Is no writer in Europe whose opinions
on the subjeot are regarded with such
keen Interest as Ellen Key. An ardent
advocate of perfect freedom for woman
and believing that all opportunities
for the complete development of her
Individuality Should be open to her.
Ellen Key nevertheless refuses to
identify herself with the regular fem
inist movement or even with any part
of It, the suffrage movement, for In
stance. She believes the chief mission
of future womanhood lies in an enlight
ened motherhood. Woman's endeavor
should be not to become as much like
man ns possible, but to develop to the
fullest extent the truly feminine in her
by freeing- horaelf from conventions
and the moral shackles imposed on
her by man, shackles which are arti
ficial Because they are of man's mak
ing and are unsulted to woman's na-
The i'l™' WOmap of Ellen Key's
dream is foreshadowed in her prose
poem, "The Woman of the Future." In
those days to come woman will be not
more like man. but more unlike him.
She will contribute a larger amount
and a better quality of intellect to the
world's mental storehouse than she
does at present But her special femi
nine service will be the refined and
Spontaneous emotion which she will
radiate about her in the future. These
attributes will enable her to love bet
ter, to educate her children better, to
be a better companion to man, not by
replacing, but by supplementing him.
Tn n word, she will be of equal value
with man in the scheme of things
but not of like value. Humanity will
be the gainer, because the womanly
element now largely suppressed In the
masculine regime will bo allowed to
unfold Itself freely and enrich the
world to the full limit of its worth.
While Ellen Key does not accuse the
feminine* of directly opposing such an
ideal, and Is in sympathy with many
of their objects, she does not think
their methods conducive to the end
she has in view.
STANTON TO MAKE AUTO
CAMPAIGN IN THE NORTH
Candidate Will Be Gone from City
About Two Months
The long automobile campaign that
Phil Stanton, candidate for the Re
publican nomination for governor, Is
to make in Northern California will be
begun on Tuesday next, and arrange
ments are being completed at his head
quarters in the Broadway Central
building for a unique and effective
tour, that will take the candidate and
his aids—X. K. Allen, tour manager,
and Winfleld Hogaboom, publicity get
ter—clear to the Oregon line and back.
The candidate expects to be gona
from Southern California at least eight
weeks, and it is his intention to visit
every place whore people are to b«
found in all of the northern counties.
The entire trip will be made In an
automobile, equipped for the purpose,
with every comfort and convenience
possible for the tourists, and carrying
a big load of campaign literature and
supplies. . •
Mr. Stanton has completed his pre
liminary campaign in Southern Cali
fornia, and expresses himself as highly
pleased with results. He believes that
he will receive a large majority of the
votes cast in Southern California, and
that the votes he will get in the north
ern part of the state will be enough to
nominate him.
An immense amount of campaign llt
eratura is being sent out from the
Stanton campaign headquarters, and
after his return to Southern California
—about the middle of July—Mr. Stan
ton's managers will plan a very active
campaign for him In Southern Cali
fornia.
FATHER AND BROTHER HIDE
GIRL AFFIANCED TO COUSIN
Bench Warrant for Arrest of
Swartfiguers Issued
Georgo B. Swartflguer arid Thomas
Q Swartflguer, father and brother of
Marietta Bvvartflguer, whom they are
charged with hiding in Los Angeles to
prevent her marrying her cousin, Ed
ward 8 Swartflguer of St. Helena,
failed to appear in Judge Bordwell's
court yesterday to explain why they
should not free the girl. Deputies who
attempted to serve subpoenas on them
at 3811 Vermont avenue Friday night,
in ah application for a writ of habeas
corpus, found that they had flown,
taking the girl with them. -. "
An order for the arrest of the father
and brother on a bench warrant was
issued by Judge Bordwell yesterday,
and deputies from the sheriff's office
took up the search.,
Mere Men
BACK in Ohio, just now, they sire
talking of niakhiK Nick Long
woi'tb governor. it Isn't bad
talk, cither. LongWOrth has a lot of
things in his favor, in oongrei he has
Insurged n little when inaurglng was
good and that won't hurt him .: bit.
Regarding the Rooaevelt pom i< s, he
■ tand ■. o{ course, in loco son In
and that won't hurt him, either. Per
sonaly he's healthy, papular and a good
mixer. Most people even forget to re
member that he's a. millionaire.
Friends of Mr. LongWOrth say his
candidacy would win the enthusiastic
support of every bahllicado.l man in
the state. That's not to be despise,|,
for Ohio boasts many men who, like
Mr. Longworth; haven't enough M:tir
on the top of. their c.raniums to disturb
an invalid Hy out roller skating or to
demonstrate the theory of capillary at
tratejon. This billiard ball buttress.
however, hasn't always been a source
Of pride with the Ohio statesman.
Once It humiliated him dreadfully.
That was when he was t roupinpr around
the world with the Taft party.
One sunny day the ciiptain of the
consort hailed the boss sailor of the
Tan steamer and said:
"Repeat' thai heliograph; The oper
ator got nil balled up."
"Haven't been hellographing," was
the reply. '- i«
"Then," came the request from the
consort, "will you kindly ask Mr.
Longworth to put on his cap,"
However, that's almost forgotten
now, and it Isn't important In Ohio,
anyway. There are people who will
tell you that Ohio is a doubtful state
this year. If that's so, Ijongworth
would seem to be the logical candi
date of the Republican , party— lf he
will run. He's friendly with every
body, mid within the past lew years
they've begun to take him seriously,
which they never had done before.
However, he wants to stay In politics,
chiefly because that's what his wife
wants, and if Ohio seems a bit too
"doubtful" It Is likely that Mr. lung
worth will continue to represent his
district in congress. That seat is his
as long as he wants it. The Demo
crats couldn't pry' him loose, even if
they possessed Archimedes' lover and
the fulcrum for which Archy sought.
There's the making of an Important
malefactor of great wealth In 13-year
old Harry Spindle, who was recently
taken in hand by the New York
Children's society, following his con
fession that he had kidnaped himself,
terrorized his parents with "Black
Hand" letters and then, when they had
failed to produce the money demanded,
had Invented a get-rlch-qulelc scheme,
which netted him $100 in less than a
week.
All that is going some for a youngster
still in his early teens, and if this re
markable genius is not nipped In the
bud by the. meddlesome society Spindle,
may yet make a name for himself as
notorious as John D. Rockefeller's own.
The case really is pathetic. Here's a
youth with big day dreams. Perhaps
he's fancied for the future something
like the "Spindle foundation," or a
flock of libraries or some trivial little
thine- like iliat, and now steps up the
Children's society, and with hands
piously raised calls:
"Stop, rash youth! Stop ere It be
too late!"
What's more, the society, t.ot content
with admonition alone, has adopted
restraint, and for the present at least
the accustomed haunts of Master
Spindle will know him no more.
The boy wanted to come west and
fight Indians. His parents, curiously
enough, couldn't see it that way, so
he tried his "Black Hand" dodge, and
when that failed adopted another ex
pedient. His plan, as told by himself,
was to call at some neighbor's home
and explain that the head of the fam
ily had just been elected to an Im
portant office In his lodge. The boy
then would Insidiously suggest that it
■would be nice to surprise "father" on
hla return home with a bunch of
flowers and would politely offer to get
the blooms from the nearest florist.
Once he had been given money with
which to make the purchase, however,
Master Spindle never came back. In
that way he amassed $100 over his
living expenses In a single week. Then
the Children's society got him.
F. A. Torseh, millionaire packer of
Baltimore, has been telling tales out of
school. Before a congressional commit
tee the other day Mr. Torseh sit Id that
canned oysters can be kept in cold
storage for a little matter of ten years
■without affecting their wholesomeness
or palatability In the least. Mr. Torseh
said he knew this to be true, because
his company had kept the tinned bi
valves that long and hnd found no dif
ficulty in marketing- them and no com
plaints afterward. In fact, he said he
had eaten some of the ten-year-old
oysters himself and had enjoyed them,
too. ,
Torseh is head of the Torseh Pack
ing company, a concern which cans
pretty muh everything in the sea
food line, shipping its produts all over
the country. He's a candid canner, is
Torseh, for he didn't attempt to dodge
the questions put to him. He gpqke
right un like a little man and said
y.u couldn't always tell by the taste
of a bivalve how many years it had
been out of the briny.

A MAX who sells vacuum cleaners J
with a pKinn!:! attachment, hav
ing headquarters, at the Hollen
bei k, relates the following bit of a yarn
every time he K"t H a chance:
"i gurss thai that near-alghted fallow
that calls cm sister is getting worse,"
s.i 1,1 a small hoy, aged 12, possibly
called Jlmmie.
"That is enough from you," said the
indignant sister.
"What m*kes you think he is get
ting worse?" inquired the father of the
son, possibly called Jimmie.
'Because I heard Bister ask him last I
night ir he thought she was the blarney i
si',ne," replied the boy, possibly i
Jlmmte.
A woman walked up to the counter of
tilonable Los Angeles hotel
asked for a package ot valuables
Which v, aa in Ihe safe.
"If 1 had not wanted one particular
thins, i suppose that I should have left
the package where it was tor another
three years," she said to the clerk,
"Yes," said the clerk in answer to a
question alter the woman left, "that
package has really been in our safe,
for three years. Why, we have all
sorts of valuable papers, jewelry and
even (noney that are entrusted to our
keeping for years at a time. Pi
sei in to prefer a hotel safe to a safety
deposit vault. Duo reason, perhaps, is;
that it costs nothing. Another is that
the standard of the hotel clerk has Im
proved.
"it is astonishing the amount of
jewelry that, is kept ill hotel safes. Of
course the owners have originally
stopped in the hotel, but they go away,
leaving their valuables, and 1 have
known such persons to bo gone away
as long as two years without making
an inquiry about their property.
This is an age of doubt. To provo |
that statement the following conversa
tion overheard recently in a downtown
cafe is repeated. The conversation con
sists of two parts. The first part la
made, up of the words of tho first
spaaker. The second part is made up
of tho words of the second speaker.
The joke, or rather the proof of the
statement ventured above will be found
by the careful reader in the second
part, consisting, as before stated, in
the words of the second speaker. The.
conversation as here presented, it will !
be understood, is merely fragmentary.
Here is the conversation:
"When Dr. Cook was at the Wal
dorf "•
"Show me the hotel register."
Harry Mulligan, formerly of the Wai

new costly skyscraper hotel, the
Blackstone, which opened April 15.

desired they should be," is the state
ment of a representative of a large
Cincinnati barber shop house, who is
stopping at the Hayward.
overheard in the lavandur room of
the King Edward:
T.iidy—Are they wealthy?
Second lady—They gave their baby
an auto tire to cut Its teeth.
"Something wrong with my right
foot," said the man at the hotel coun
ter. "Could you direct me to a good
carpenter?"
"Excuse me." said the clerk, with
a sly glance of amusement at the lady
bookkeeper, "but of course you mean
a chiropodist."
"No, I'm going to be patient With
you, young man, and tell you that I
want a good carpenter. My right leg
Is a wooden one."
"The whole country as far as T rnn
see is hotel mad," said Daniel P.
Ritchey, hotel broker, N«W York, re
cently. "You see, only a few years ago
owners of old hotels and residents of a
town would be opposed to the idea of a
modern hotel in the midst of their in
terests. They said it would ruin the
business of the old places. Ho they sat
back and watched other cities make
the experiment. In every case the new
hotels added business all around. The
old-places are obliged to brush up a
bit, and the overflow alone from the
new hotels generally brings to the old
ories a better trade than they had be
fore. For instance, annex after annex
has been built on the Hollenden of
Cleveland, one of the first of the mod
ern'hotels in that part of the country.
