Astoria Regatta This Week
rill Reproduce Arrival of
HONORS LEWIS AND CLARK
Land and Water Sports, Brilliant
Marine Parade, "Last 'of Mo
lilcans,' Pantomime, and
Regatta Ball Features.
ASTORIA, Aug. 2C (Special.) The
eyes of all the sport-loving people in
the Paclfie Northwost are now turned
toward Astoria, in anticipation of the
great land and water carnival to be
held here during the coming: week.
And on Tuesday morning, when the
opening1 events are scheduled to take
place, thoufcands of visitors will be
present, not only from towns along the
Columbia River and on the coast, but
from Interior points as well, to wit
ness and participate in the three days
of genuine sport and healthful enter
tainment to be provided by the ener
getic committee In charge of the af
fair. The Astoria regattas have long
since ceased to be simply local cele
brations. They are unlike anything
held elsewhere, on the Coast, and are
looked forward to with eager antici
pation by those who enjoy clean and
manly sports, which Include both land
and water contorts. These annual
events are always held during the lat
ter part of August, as at that time the
conditions are ideal. In the mornings
the river and harbor are as smooth as
a frozen lake, presenting conditions
for the shell and other rowing rnoes
that cannot be surpassed, while in the
afternoon a stiff northwest breeze
springe up, affording abundant oppor
tunity for testing the quality of tae
numerous sailing craft. The course is
directly in front of the city, where all
can see it, and with a good pair of
glasses one can follow from the grand
stand every movomont in the sailing
races over the entire distance which
the competing yachts will be com
pelled to covor.
New Feature for Regatta.
The general public always enjoys
spectacular effects, and for this the
committee has made ample pro-Ision,
having arranged features that are not
alone unique, but are of an historical
and Instructive nature, and have never
before been presented. The opening
event of former regattas has been the
crowning of the Queen, and her for
mal presentation to her subjects, but
this year an entirely new feature has
been prepared. It will be a true rep
resentation of the arrlvel of the 'in
trepid explorers Captains Lewis and
Clark an event that occurred at the
site of this cits- just 100 years ago.
This spectacle will take place on Tues
day morning when A. M. Smith, rep
resenting Captain Clark, George No
land, representing Captain Lewis, and
Mrs. George Malar, representing the
Indian Princess, Sacajawea, will arrive
from up the river In canoes and will
be met and welcomed In true aborigi
nal style by a band of Indians, con
sisting of several hundred members
of the Improved Order of Rod Men
from the various tribes In Oregon and
"Washington. Following this -will be
an address of welcome by Senator Ful
ton, to be replied to by the explorers.
The explorers and their guide will
then be escorted to the Indian village,
where the visitors will be entertained
with scenes typical of Indian lif,e of
100 years ago. Shortly after the noon
hour the land parade will take place,
and it promises to be one of unusual
merit. It will be participated in by
the Red Men, two detachments of
troops from the forts, the Uniform
Rank, Knights of Pythias, the Boys
Brigade, numerous civic organizations,
as well as innumerable floats repre
sentative of the industrial and manu
facturing interests of the lower Co
lumbia River district. Following this
will be n. programme of land sports,
"with a few minor races on the river,
and in tne evening the great marine
parade will occur. It will consist of
several hundred vessels of all sizes
and kinds, each brilliantly lighted and
decorated and carrj'lng nn abundance
of fireworks to be discharged while
making tne circle off the city front.
While this Is in progress, the visitors
will bo further entertained by the
presentation in pantomime of scenes
from J. FcnimoreiCooper'.s "Last of the
Mohicans," which will be arranged on
barges anchored in front of the grand
staud, the whole to conclude with a
genuine Indian war dance.
Sports on the Water. v
On Wednesday and Thursday, the
principal -water sports will be pulled
off, and the programme includes con
tests for every variety of craft, from
the slim and fragile shell to the more
cumborsone sloop and launch. Money
prizes have been provided that will
insure numerous entries in every con
test. In addition to this, there will
be on these two days the farmers' fair,
where exhibits from the agricultural
districts will be on display, a street
carnival with Its attendant attractions,
hose team races and athletics contests,
in which some of the best athletos on
the Coast will participate; the coun
try dance, where fun will be tho prin
cipal feature, and on Tuesday even
ing there will be the regatta ball.
Of the water events, one that Is at
tracting a vast amount of attention
and will bo watched with more than
ordinary interest, is the single shell
contest for the Coast championship
between J2d Gloss and Dr. Patton, of
Portland, and an unknown, whoso
name the management will not di
vulge, but who Is said to possess a
speed that makes him a formidable
rival for championship honors. The
course over which this race will be
rowod Is an Ideal one, and on it some
Cout records have already been mado
by Gloss, Alex Pape and others. Sev
eral members of the Portland Rowing
Club will be here to participate in the
races, as will a fleet from the Oregon
Yacht Club. A special race has been
arranged for the latter, and the
course, will be changed so as to have
tne yaohts in front of the city at all
times and obviate the necessity of
running Into the rough water of the
lower harbor, which at times is far
too choppy -for this class of craft. It
is. Indeed, a difficult matter to entertain
properly 10.0C0 or more strangers
and have something all the time which
each will enjoy, but the management
of this regatta has solved the prob
lem and interspercing the principal
water contests will be tub races,
swimming races, duck hunts, high
diving contests, life-saving drills and
numerous other similar events that
will afford abundant opportunity for
laughter and keen enjoyment.
Large Crowd Expected.
Already preparations are being made
lo receive the large crowd of visitors
that Is expe.cted to arrive on Monday
and Tuesday morning. Every business
house and residence, and the numer-J
ous craft about the harbor, have been
gaily -decorated with flags, festoon;,
bunting and regatta colors of white
and blue, until the entire city and
water front arc an Intermingling of
colors and shades, rivaling in fan
tastic appearance the scenes presented
at a mardi gras celebration in the
Southern stated. An Important fea
ture of the carnival wlfl be the music,
and for this several bands have been
engaged, anions them being the famous
Brown Band of Portland, which will be
stationed on the grandstand during the
races, and will furnish the music at the

Chinese Government Is Taking
a Firm Stand.
MEETINGS ARE BROKEN UP
Because American Goods Arc Cheap
er nnd Better, Shanghai and
Hongkong Merchants Would
Patch Up the Trouble.
SEATTLE!, Aug. 26. The Chinese gov
ernment has succeeded in breaking up
meetings held for the purpose of boy
cotting American goods and te prevent
ing the spread of tbe movement by agita
tors. The vernacular press has been com
pelled to abandon Its campaign, but among
those who have takea up the fight no
headway has been made toward its sup
pression. This is the way Woo Blng. a partner In
Quong Tuck &. Co.. sums up tbe situa
tion. He has Just returned from China,
and Is convinced that as soon as a new
treaty is signed or a promise of changes
Is made by the American Government,
the sentlmeat among those who have led
the fight will die out.
"It is Impossible for the Chinese gov
ernment to compel Chinese to eat Amer
ican flour or to buy American good."
said Woo Bing today. "But the govern
ment can and is succeeding in breaking
up the boycott meetings. The government
has succeeded In stopping the representa
tives of the boyoottcrs who go from town
le town to talk against American goods,
and strangers going into a new town for
news of the light itnd it almost impossi
ble to learn anything. The boycotters
arc afraid to hold public meetings or to
give Information to these they do not
"Of course, tbe boycott has spread wide
ly and a large percentage of Chinese know
of the fight. Some of the boycotters have
secured copies of all American trademarks
and other signs that show American
manufacture. There have been shown
the people, so they will know what not
to buy. This work Has stopped because
tbe government interfered."
Private letters received today from
China Indicate that at Shanghai and
Hongkong there is a sentiment growing
In favor of patching up the trouble at
once. One letter received by a big Chi
nese Importing house- says American goods
are cheaper and better than those of
other countries and shrewd Chinese trad
ers want to be put on good terms again.
The news of Minister Conger's state
ment that the boycott amused him has
reachod the guilds and this will minimise
any influence he might have had if sent
on a mission of peace.

GOLD OUTPUT FItOJL NOME
Assnycr Wing Snys It Will Be Greater
Than Lnst Year.
SEATTLE. Aug. 36. United States As
sayer Fred Wing. In charge of the local
assay ofllco. made the statement today
that his estimate of the gold output of
Nome for the season of 100Q was 16.0(a,Mv.
This amount will be the record for Nome,
and will "exceed the output of last year
Mr. Wing bases his estimate on the I
amount of gold which has been sent out
of Nome so far this year and on the pri
vate advices which He has received from
assayers and other officials . whose busi
ness it is to keep tab on the results of
mining In that part of the country.
Mr. Wing states that in his opinion it
Is the large amount of machinery and
ditching material which has been placed
In operation at Nome and other localities
on the Seward Peninsula this year which
Is responsible for the increase in the gold
output of that country.
DITG1I DIGGING TO BEGIN
Landowners in Klamath Section Fall
In With Government Plan.
KLAMATH FALLS. Ore.. Aug. 26.
(Special.) It Is now almost assured that
active ditch-digging will begin by the
Government contractors on the lower
Klamath project before snow files.
Practically all of tbe larger land owners
In this project have signed up with the
Water Users' Association, and many of
those not already signed have promised
to do so at onee.
Secretary Elmer I. Applegate. of the
Association, states that not one of the
large holdcro who have been approached
have refused to sign the trust deed so I
far. He stated further that 60 per cent 1
had signed and promised to do so, and he
expected by September 1 to have the rc- ;
quired 75 per cent which the Government :
asks before actual ditch-digging is to ;
It Is also promised by the Government j
officials that Just as soon as 73 per cent
of the holdings under the project are
signed, bids for contract work will be
advertised for. and as soon as these are
accepted work will begin.
However, It Ib not expected that a great
deal will be accomplished this Winter,
owing to the lateness of the season and
difficulty in getting heavy machinery in
here during the Fall and Winter.
Already the Government working force
now in the field has .been reduced slightly
In accordance with Chief Engineer New.
ell's advice when here recently.
This is said to be because of the prob

PIT SCENTS CUT OUT OF LACICVVE'S
PLAY AT SPOKANE.

Clean Collnrs Are Expcn
SPOKANE. Wash.. Aug. 26. (Spe
cial.) For the second time during
Walton Lackayc's presentation of
The Pit" in Spokane, the much-vaunt-eU
scene from the Chicago wheat pit
was a frost this afternoon, owing to a
strike of supers, who refused to rep
resent bulls and bears for 35 cents a
performance. Tne supers say they were I
promised 34 cents last night. About
1 of tnem struck on finding that the j
price had been cut. However, there
were enough young men 10ft, so the pit
scene was given, but It was a most
sllmly populated board of trade room
for such a crisis as the drama depicts.
This afternoon the young bulls and
bears waited until too late for the
management to tocure other help and
at the last minute it was decided to
omit the pit scene, which Is the feature
of the play. No anouncement was made
lo the audience.
One ground of complaint by the su
pers was tne requirement of freshly
shaven faces, ctean collars and white
shirts. They said, these essentials of
costume and make-up wore worth half
the promised SO cent.
