The nineteenth annual re-union of the
Oregon pioneer Association, to be held in
Portland June 10, gives promise of being an
unusual interesting session. At the same
time the state convention of delegates from
the various counties will arrange details as to
the manner of preparing a pro)ier exhibit at
the World's Fair at Chicago, and to raise
means to defray the expenses of the same.
At the last meeting of the council Mayor
Sullivan called attention to the importance
