It wus a bold uadertakiDg to
essay to gather people enough
on the western verge of tbe
United States to make an inter
national fair a success. It con
only he accomplished by a
united and intelligent co-operation
of all the forces in Oregon
and in the United States.
Those who have been placed)
in charge and at the head of
this gigantic enterprise must
operate on broud line), and put
themselves in friendly touch
with, not only with the mass of
the people of the United States,
but with the leading men and
those, who by their official
position and influence cau do
much to either assist or hinder
the enterprise. To accomplish
this the exercise ot a high order
of diplomacy is requisite. This
diplomacy, of necessity, must be
exercised by the accredited head
men of the fair, and largely by
the president thereof.
II. W. Scott, of Portland, is
president of the Lewis and
Clark fair, and because of his
position as such, the people of
Oregon watch with deep solici
tude his every act in connection
with that greutand costly under
taking. As a inaltor of fact,
while he holds that position no
act of his, or statement in the
paper, the editorial columns in
which he controls as editor in
chief, but may and most prob
ably will have an influence up
on tho fair.

unfortunate for the fair.
In a recent editorial in the
Oregonian under the head Hue
"Unpalriotio Germans" after
some irony about the meat eat
ers and butchers in Germany,
he wanders from his text to use
insulting language about Mr
Wilson, United State? Secretary
of Agriculture. It is conceded
by all that Secretary Wilson is
the most popular with the own
ers of the six millions of farms
in the Unitod States ot any man
who has ever held that high
position. It is also a well recog
nized fact iliut up to (he present
time Secretary Wilson has
evinced a deep and friendly
interest in the Lewis and Clark
fuir, and that from his position,
and the great confidence the
agriculturalists have in him, be

SINGS ITS DEATH SONG
A Fecutlnr Bird Found In tit Jnn
alem of South America.
There Is a queer bird In the Jungles
of northern South America which Is
colled the 'panjP by the natives, but
Is known to science as the ffalcaica
cunia-son. It Is chiefly remarkable be
cause It slug's IU own death song.
It docs not really sing, but makes a
deep humming noise which sounds
very much like the Spanish words "131
muerto eHta aqnl" (the corpse lies here).
"It Is while uttering this lugubrious
rliant," said a South American travel
r, "that the 'pauji' usually meets Its
denth, for the hunter can then easily
track It to Iw retreat, and it falls a
victim, as the Indians say, to Us own
If the "paujl" gets suspicious It Im
mediately censes humming, and that Is
a sure Indication to the hunter that
the bird has seen him or scents dan
ger. In such a case the only thing foi
tho sportsman to do Is to remain per
ftcHy still. The bird may become re
assured after waiting awhile and again
begin to cnll, "The corpse lies here." It
can then be cautiously approached nnd
If It is only wounded the "paujl" nsn
ally escapes, though It cannot fly much
better than tbe ordinary domestic
fowl. It Is very fleet of foot and will
outrun the hunter until It is lost In thp
dense undergrowth of the Jungle.
In the mating season the male "paujl
Is the must pugnacious of birds and
will fight Its own kind whenever It
meets them. Often the flght ends Ir,
the annihilation of both combatants
