Unos tentatiously and without any ceremony, the remains of Abrahaxai Lincoln and the other members of his family, which, j since March 10, 1900, when the work of , rebuilding the Lincoln monument com i menced, have been reposing in a tem- t porary stone vault near the monument, were this afternoon replaced in the crypt in the monument which has been rebuilt by the. State of Illinois, at a cost of $100, 000. The ceremony of returning the re mains to the monument was witnessed by Governor Tates and other state offi cials, the members of the Lincoln Monu ment Association, the surviving mem bers of the Lincoln Guard of Honor, Judge Humphrey, of the United States District Court, and other Federal offi cials, Mayor Phillips and other city offi cials and probably 200 citizens who had been advised of the intended removal. No public announcement of the arrangements for the ceremony had been made. The temporary vault was so thoroughly ce meted that it was 5 o'clock when the work of removal commenced, when the remains of the President, which were the last to be removed, were finally placed in the marble sarcophagus in the crypt in the monument, where they were sealed up and where they will probably remain through all time. The casket was not opened for the identification of the body of the martyred President, as had been expected, nor was even the leaden cas ket exposed to view, it being covered by a cedar casket. The remains which now rest in the tomb of the monument are those of President and Mrs. Lincoln, their sons Willie, Thomas (Tad) and Eddie and Abraham, son of Robert T. Lincoln. RUGS NAME FOR THE FAIR The Lewis and Clark Centennial, and AMERICAN PACIFIC EXPOSITION Decision Reached by the Oregon and Washington Commissioners at a D.Inner Given by Hon. H. W. Corhett. The official name of the great exposition to be held in Portland in 1905, as decided upon by the Oregon and Washington commissioners, is: "WHERE ROLLS THE OREGON." The Lewis and Clark: Centennial, and American-Pacific Exposition. Last evening Hon. H. W. Corbett, chair man of the Oregon Centennial Commission, gave a dinner at the Hotel Portland. The object of the dinner was to confer with the commissioners of the State of Washington upon the adoption of a name for the centennial celebration to be held in 1905. There were present the following gentlemen of the Washington commission: Senator W. W. Tolman, of Spokane; Sen ator E. M. Rands, of Vancouver; Colonel F. J. Parker, of Walla Walla; Mr. G. W. Rowan, of Castle Rock; Judge C. B. Bel linger, of Portland; Mr. Edward Everett Young, of Baker City; Mr. J. M. Long and Mr. H. W. Scott, of Portland. The dinner was Intended as an enter tainment for the Washington commis sioners, and it was understood that the question of selecting of a name for the centennial celebration of 1905 would be taken up. At the close of the dinner Mr. Corbett brought the main question to the attention of the gentlemen assembled around the board. He stated that the occasion would.be one of great historical significance; that the co-operation of the State of Washington was especially de sired; and that care should be taken In the selection of a name that would be comprehensive, and at the same time sat isfactory. Colonel Parker, chairman of the Wash ington commission, arose and said that at first he had not liked altogether the idea of naming it the Oregon Centennial Exposition, but that name had grown up on him as he had thought of it. It would be comprehensive and historical. It would embrace the old Oregon country, and. in his opinion, the whole of the old Oregon country would unite in support of, the name. He said he would like to call upon Mr. Scott for his suggestion, Mr. Scott said that he had given the subject & good deal of attention, during the past two or three months; that he had asked for suggestions 'from, all quarr ters and had' received many; that he .had made several suggestions of his own, but only' tentatively; that he thought a name ought to be adopted which would unite the whole of -the old Oregon country In support of the centennial celebration, but doubted whether, If a title were adopted that might limit It in the popular mind to Oregon as Oregon now exists, it would be judicious. He therefore suggested that the name should be The American-Pacific Centennial Exposition. He would be par tial to the name Oregon Centennial Ex position, but he had doubts whether this would be understood In its broadest his torical sense. He did not wish to assume the large responsibility that would be de volved upon him in the selection of. the name, but was willing "to defer to the opinion of others, especially to the opinion of the gentlemen from the State of Wash ington, for the co-operation of that state, both locally and In a National sense, was absolutely necessary tp the success of the centennial celebration. Mr. Rands, of Washington, said that he lived near the State of Oregon, once lived in the State of Oregon, and would gladly co-operate in celebration of this centen nial under any name, but he thought that the Lewis and Clark Exposition ought to be brought prominently forward. Judge Bellinger and Mr. Young coincided In this .view. Mr. Young therefore proposed that this name be adopted: "American-Pacific Ex position and Lewis and Clark Centen nial." Senator Tolman, of Spokane, said this would be an ideal name, only he proposed that the terms be reversed and that it be called: "The Lewis and Clark Centen nial, and American-Pacific Exposition;" the whole to be surmounted with the le gend to go upon all the literature, both as a motto and a trademark, "Where Rolls the Oregon." Mr. Corbett said he wa,s glad to accept this as a most happy emendation. Mr. Rowan, of the Washington commis sion, spoke to the same effect. Upon motion of Judge Bellinger, the name as amended by the suggestion of Senator Tolman was adopted by a unanimous vote. This Is but an outline of the discus sion of the evening, which covered a wide range as to the details of the early history of the Oregon country. A motion was made that Mr. Scott be thanked for the Interest he had taken In the subject and for- suggestion of the name. He said that his modesty would compel him to disclaim the authorship of the name, though he accepted it as ad mirable; for he had asked others for sug gestion of names, and had himself sug gested several with numerous variations. He had only wished to take counsel with others for adoption of the most expressive and significant name. This morning, Mr. Corbett and Mr". Long will show the Washington commis sioners through City View Park and Its surroundings, the place deemed, on the whole, best adapted for the celebration and exposition. ' ' Washington Commission Organize. The Washington commission met at the Imperial Hotel yesterday, and perfected permanent organization by electing Frank J. Parker, of Walla Walla, president: J. G. Megler, of Brookfield, treasurer, and George W. Rowan, of Castle Rock, secre tary. At 3:30 P. M. the Oregon and Washing ton commissions met in the parlors of the First National Bank for an informal discussion of matters relating to the fair. Oregpn was represented by H. W, Corbett, C. B. Bellinger, Edward Everett Young, and W. S. Dunlway, secretary. The Washington commissioners were Par ker and Rowan, W. W. Tolman, of Spo- lkane, and E. M. Rands, of Vancouver. Chairman Corbett, of the Oregon com imissfon, who presided, said the purpose 'of the meeting was to give the represen tatives of the two states an opportunity 'to become acquainted. City Attorney Long, who was present In behalf of the provisional organization having charge of the preliminaries of the fair, told of his recent visit to Victoria and his conference with Ministers of the British Columbia Government. He said the sentiment among the Britishers Is that the fair should have a name; which should show the Pacific Coast to have a com mon Interest lrV' its success. In British Columbia, as irf Oregon, Washington and California, the opinion is that the fair should show that the Pacific Coast is the gateway to the Orient. "At the same time," said Chairman Corbett, "we cannot ignore the fact that the fair will commemorate the one hun dredth anniversary of the (Lewis and Clark expedition." Senator Tolman said he could not see wherein the people of British Columbia could obeject to the name Lewis and Clark. "Tne great expedition of Lewis and Clark," he said, "was the taking pos session of this country by the English speaking, race. It opened up what is now known as British Columbia, as well as what are now the Pacific States of the American Union. If some designation Is required to emphasize the Oriental trade feature, we can put In our literature and letterheads some- such thing as 'Wilder ness la 1S05: Gateway to the Orient in TW3,' and leaythe name stand, as it ought to. a commemoration of the Lewis and Clark expedition." Judge Bellinger said the territorial gov ernment of Oregon was organized by Eng lishmen as well as Americans, a unique circumstance in the history of govern ment. "This shows the bond," he said, "that binds the Anglo-Saxon people. I am opposed to giving too much promi nence to the word 'Oregon," in the title. Oregon once stood for f vast stretch of territory in the West, but It Is now the name of a state, and Is Very much local ized." In a general conversation which fol lowed the Washington commissioners as sured the Oregon commissioners of the great Interest of the State of Washington in the fair. They said they felt that the fair would be as much for their benefit as for Oregon's. Chairman Parked said he had plenty of time at his disposal, and should be glad to perform any service asked of him. Chairman Corbett thanked the Washingtonians in behalf of the Ore gon commission. Secretary Dunlway was instructed to correspond with the governments of the various states and. British Columbia, whlchhave appointed commissions for the 1903 fair, wilh a view to holding a convention of such commissions in Port land at a date to be fixed later. At this convention each of the state commissions will be asked to name two members of the executive committee, which will take charge of a great deal of the work of the fair. HIGH-HANDED GERMANS. Undoing the Work of the Pence Com missioner at Peliin. PEKIN, April 24. The international de tachment of 800 men under Colonel Rad ford, which left Shan Hal Kwan to pun ish the force of Boxers and robbers that recently attacked the Indian troops, kill ing Major Browning, met the enemy in force, klling 50. Of the international de tachment, six British, two Japanese and one Frenchman we're killed. The enemy fled to the mountains, but will be closely pursued. The body of Major Browning was recovered. The Germans have been ordered back front the PaoTjng Fu expedition. Their behavior for the l&st week or so has paused great. Jjfulgpailon inPekln, not only among the, Chinese. butamong tne foreigners as well. Carts, horses, mules arid ponies have been impressed for trans portation purposes, coolies have been made to work for nothing, and even edu cated Chinese have been Impressed. A contractor working for an American Quartermaster, was Impressed while at work, and was only released on proof that he was working for the Americans. An employe of the British Legation had a similar experience. Mr. Hlllier, manager of the bank, was stopped and, made to prove his ownership of a cart. The Chi nese say there is Intense feeling In the province against the foreigners, princi pally because of the harsh treatment the Chinese have received from the Germans. They also assert that the needless expe ditions of Germans against perfectly quiet communities haVe caused many Chinese, who have lost all, to join roving bands of robbers. Dispnte Over the Gate. WASHINGTON. April 24. Nothing is known here officially of the reported Is sue between General Chaffee and Count von Waldersee as to the possession of the gate to the Forbidden City now held by the American troops. On one hand it Is suggested that this particular gateway may give access to the place selected by Minister Rockhill and Mr. Squires for the future American Legation. On the other hand. It Is recalled that the American troops were the first to possess themselves of this gate and General Chaffee may feel It to be his duty, when he relinquishes his position, to turn it over to the Chinese, its original possessors. No one . here Is aware of any special title In this property possessed by the Germans. The fact that the matter has not yet been made the subject of an official report inclines the officials 'here to the belief that it can be adjusted directly In Pekln and may not assume serious proportions. A Move Toward Reform. SHANGHAI, April 24. An Imperial de cree has been issued appointing a board, consisting of Prince Ching and Prince LI Hung Chang, the Chinese plenipotentia ries, Yang Lu, Lung Kang, Wang Wen Shao and Lu Chuam Lin with Liu Kun YI and Chang Chi Tung, as coadjutors, to inquire fully Into the question of re forms to select those most feasible and im portant for the safety and welfare of the Empire, and report the matter to the Emperor, who after returning to Pekln and obtaining the approval of the Dowager Empress of the suggested reforms, will Issue rescripts In accordance therewith.

BRITISH CABINET MAY RESIGN Or Abandon the New War Tax on Goal. LONDON, April 25. The date of Lord Salisbury's return to London from the Riviera is still problematical and the ru mors of cabinet trouble over the budget are assuming greater consistency in the the Oregon" THE "TRADE MARK." lobbies of Parliament. According to the Daily Mail, the framing of the budget revealed considerable dissension. Mr. Chamberlain wanted the whole cost of the war raised on the credit of the South African Colonies, and had schemes of his own for providing the Interest on the loan and the Increase of normal expendi ture. To these schemes, however, with the exception of the coal duty. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach turned a deaf ear, and on being pressed he offered to re sign. Mr. Chamberjain, according to the Dally Mall, favored the resignation, but Lord Salisbury and Mr. Balfour strongly opposed it. Now it is said that although at first Sir Michael Hicks-Beach did not advo cate a coal tax, he now declines to drop it, thinking his reputation would suffer, now that he Is committed to it. He has, however, agreed to give careful consid eration to the alternative nrooosal to substitute an ad valorem duty on a basis of eight pence or nine pence on Inferior coal, rising to IS pence on the best Welsh coal. While jthls -Would mollify the Northern colliery owners. It would In tensify the opposition from Wales and belief prevails that the upshot will be cither the abandonment of the tax alto gether or the resignation of the ministry. Mr. Chamberlain Is credited with urg ing the latter course with the double object of getting rid of Sir Michael Hicks Beach, whose plain speaking regarding the deplorable financial consequences of the war offends him. and of proving to the country that there Is no alternative government, as the opposition would, un der existing conditions, decline the task of forming a cabinet. According to lobby gossip this expedient would pull the Con servative party together and kill the op position withlndts ranks to the necessary financial expedients. THE DEATH ROLL.

The delegates remained at their hotel most of the morning. When Inquiry was made of Mr. Tamayo as to the plans of the party, he answered that the delega tion felt It would be discourteous to enter upon a discussion of their business before they had called on the Secretary of War.
