a. m. to 11 p. in. The train will have
extra facilities for carrying big crowd.
The up river boats will bring host to
th Fall City to celebrate. It will be
a laiy day for Oregon City.
In the oak grove at the weet end of
the suspension bridje a considerable
part of the day' exe.risea will occur.
It is a moot attractive place. The pro
cession will pans under an immense arch
at the east end ot the brides that is now
being put in place. There will be un
rivalled advantage for witnessing the
contests on the river ami on land. The
base ball game and some of the race
will take place on the bluff on the east
sioe on account ot the superior accom
modations for them there.
