PORTLAND, Or., June 9. (Special.)
The picturesque shower of rosea
waa the dominant feature of the Fes
tival program this forenoon. It waa
given on a great deal more lavish
scale than haa been done In former
rears, and by actual count more than
1000,000 freshly-cut rosea from the
Peninsula garden were thrown away
in carpeting the atreeta along the
route of the shower.
Estimated at only 10 cents apiece,
these beautiful blooms would have
coat 110,000, yet thla riotous extrava
gance with Portland'a floral queen waa
not graaped by the throng
further than to gaap In astonishment
that any city In the world dared pro
fane the fragrant rose by scattering
to the four winds in such multitude.
The children, rest rosebuds in a
city of perfect bloom, causad Grand

characters had been examined, out In
each case Innocence waa sn.iwn.
"It la the worst crime that waa ever
committed in thla state." said the
Sheriff. "After a day's hard work we
have nothing tangible to wor upon
That the crime waa premeditated
there la no doubt. But the man who
committed It waa careful to leave no
trace behind. We found a napkin
and a cloth, which were bloodstained,
but there were no finger prints upon
them. There were no finger printa
on any of the furniture, the windows.

were no ataina upon the handle of the

Sellwood Man Sought
The Hills lived In Sell wood before
moving to the borne when the trag
edy. waa enacted, and Sheriff Mass is
inclined to the opinion .tort the crime
waa committed by someone, who had
known or had aeen them there. Aa a
natter of fact the only thing that in
any way resembles a clue Is connected
with a young man of that plac-. Tut
if he la the alayer he atands out aa
the boldest In the annals of crinun
ology. While Sheriff Stevens ' and
Deputy Sheriff Leonard, of Multno
mah County, and Detectives Price and
Carpenter, of Portland, were await
Ing the arrival of the authorities of
CUckamaa county, their attention waa
directed to a man who waa question
lng various persons. He wanted to
know if there waa any clue to the
identity of the alayer and dotted down
notea aa he questioned various per
eona. When the Sheriff aaked him
the nature of hla buainesa, he replied
that he was a reporter for the Port'
land Tlmea. He waa told that there
waa no such paper and then he de
clared that he meant the Portland
Man Finally Disappears.
A reporter for the Dally Newa waa
present, and upon being told thla, the
man became confused and aald that
he was "merely gathering the newa,
but refused to give his object. He
disappeared shortly afterward, and
the police have since tried to find
him without success.
Corner Fox held an Inqueat laat
night, the jury returning a verdict
that the family waa alain "with
blunt Instrument by a person or per
sons unknown to them." Dr. Mount
held an autopsy, and the remaina were
noon. The greateat crowd of the Rose ; 'hen removed to an undertaking estab-

children from all but two Eaat Side

Next Mrs. Matthewa perceived the

The body of Hill, which lay under
