PORTLAND, Or., June 5. (Special.)
The Rose Festival brought more
than 20,000 visitors to i'ortland the
first dsy and It Is thought that num
ber will be more than doubled tomor
row. The festival began with the ar
rival of Rex Oregonus, on the convert
ed flagship, Rose City, convoyed by
a gay flotilla of barges at noon.
Artillery fire heralded the coming of
the Festival aa the royal aquadron
ateamed Impressively through the
open draw spans and brought up at
the landing point. The first blare of
the field rifles was sharp and clear
but the detonations of succeeding
shots in a salute of .21 guns Were all
but lost In the 'mad clamor of shriek
ing sirens, clanging bella and cheer
ing Festival crowds.
The arduous business of merry-making
commences in earnest tomorrow.
Half a dozen, bands will parado the
decorated afreets during the morning.
And early In the afternoon a crown
ing event of the week, the competitive
rose show, will open at the Armory.
With darkness will come the magni

ment to open a postal savings bank !n

posit slips and other stationary haa
been received by the local orflce.

ed to go to Olympla, Wash., on June

The postofflre department has writ
ten to the officers of the First Na-
lonal and the Oregon City banks ask
ing the banks to become depositories
for the postal savings bsnk.
Mr. Randall said Monday that he
had not decided who would be in
charge of the new department, but he
thought that Mrs. P. L Nash, money-
order clerk, would be given tne work.
The Washington authorities bpv rug-
gested that the money-order clerk
lu the various offices attend to the
banking departments. It Is also prob
able that more room will bo needed
In the local postofflce, and a larger
corpa of clerks employed.
That the postal savlnga bank will
be largely patronized in thla city is
evidenced by the numerous lnjulrles
made at the office as to when the de
partment would be atarted. Several
persons have announced their Inten
tion of placing money on depot.!', when

BOYS WHO STEAL INTO

CITY COUNCIL PASSES ORDIN
ANCE FOR PROTECTION OF
The Gladston City Council, at a
meeting Monday night, passed an or
dinance providing a fine of from $5
to $25 for persons arrested for enter
ing the Vhautauqua grounds, without
a ticket. There has been no penalty
heretofore, and, as a result the man
agement has had a great deal of trou
ble In handling boys and even some
men who persisted In climbing the
fence. . It is thought the penalty will
abate the nuisance.
Another ordinance providing a way
of notifying the voters of the election
to be held on July 31 to approve the
new city charter, was passed. This
will be done by posting notices of the
election. The charter provides for the
Issuance of bonds, not to exceed $20,

CHILDREN CLIKG TO BED OF WACOM
Runaway Halted By Blackamlth,
Who Climbs Into Vehicle Lad
Finally Jumps But Is
" , .. Unhurt.
Tho Uvea of two children of E. P.
Kester, who live six miles out on the
Highland road, were saved Monday by
the remarkable presence of mind of
one of them, a girl, when the horses
attached to tho wagon in which they
were riding ran away ' on Seventh
street, thla city. After the frightened
animate got a good start the children,
realizing they would be thrown out
If they remained on the aeat, climbed
to the bed of the wagon and clung
desperately to the sideboards. Hardly '
had they' vacated the seat when It
fell to the atreet. .
Mr. Kester left the horses and wa
gon at the fountain at Seventh and
Center streets, while he went to a
store to make some purchases. The
children, a girl seven years of age,
and a boy six years, remained In tne .
wagon. Hardly had Mr. Keater eu
tered tbe store when the horses start
ed to run. The little grl caught the
reins and tried her best to stop the 1
horses, but she waa not strong enough
for jhe task. The maddened animals
ran up Seventh street at a rapid pace,
persons on the sidewalk being power
less to render aid to the children.
Finally the little girl told her brother
that they better climb Into tbe back .
of the wagon, and leading the way, she
assisted tbe boy to a position Just In
the rear of tbe seat. The wagon
swsyed from pne side of tho street
to the other and several times narrow
ly escaped colliding with posts and
trees. The sideboards, which were
not bolted on, were thrown off, and
It was by the hardest efforts that the '
children clung to the uprights. The
speed of the animals wss somewhat
checked aa they plunged np tbe bIH
at John Qulncy Adama street, and the
boy Jumped from the wagon, escaping -
unhurt The girl, however, still helj .
to the uprights.
As the horses passed tho black
smith shop at Seventh street and John
Qulncy Adams street, LeRoy Roper,
who Is employed in the shop, jumped
on the rear of the wagon. Ho man--aged
to work his way to the front,
but could get hold of only one of the -reins.
Tbe course of the animals waa turn
ed somewhat, and, as they swerved.
Nathaniel Smith, who waa in Schoen-
born's candy store, rushed out and
seised one of the horses by the head.
Roper climbed down from tho wagon
and caught the other horse by the
bridle. Both men were dragged some
distance before they stopped the fren
The little girl was then lifted out ot
the wagon, and although she wss un
hurt, she was speechless from fright.
Meantime the boy, who had fallen In
the dust, wss given attention. He too
was so badly frightened he could not '
talk, but he was not even bruised by

Attorney ten days In which to answer
