Have you an Idea where the 1905 fair
ought to be? If you have not "chosen
a site, everybody else has, and you would
better Join In
The call of the board of directors for
proposals for a location took everybody
by surprise. People were looking for It
to come, and many were Impatient, but
hardly anyone thought It would come so
soon. As a result of the sudden an
nouncement, ana of the short time al
lowed to make proposals, property-owners
who have axes to grind yesterday did a
deal of scurrying about.
"That story In The Oregonlan this morn
ing took my breath away," said a real
estate man last night, "and I haven't got
It back yet But when Saturday of next
week comes, you will see us there with
both feet Ours Is the only location that
the executive committee of the board can
consider. From our place you can see
in four directions, and water runs down
hill. Full of confidence? Well, I should
smile. Just watch us. We are the people
and must be respected, and our site Is
the only one that offers advantages for
Other persons likewise interested spoke
in the same vein. Bach one of the offered
sites was more sightly that any other,
and had the most lines of railway tran
sit. Each was near enough the center
of the city to be conveniently accessible,
or far enough away to escape the annoy
ances of the city. Each had a bank laved
by the majesUc Willamette, or was back
far enough from the river to be free from
unsightly mud flats after the Spring
freshet receded. Each had lakes or la-
PnnilS tfint mil1 Via it rt an art f rfc-n y tlm
,pid stream that Lewis and Clark called
jiuuuumau, or couia oe supplied witn
pure spring water that flowed undeflled
out of the land that Lewis and Clark
called Oregon. One had one more snow
clad mountain in its prospect than any
other, a mountain that Lewis and Clark
gazed upon 100 years ago, and of course
it would be an offense to their memories
to leave it out. Each had high hills to
command a view of the course by which
Lewis and Clark explored the Northwest
or lower tracts that Joined with the wat
ers that have been softly calling to the
sea ever since they felt the ripple of the
oars of Lewis and Clark.
In fact, no single advantage of any one
site was possessed by any other locaUon.
If lack of water was the virtue of one
site, surfeit of water was the virtue of
Choice From These Sites.
Most people have settled In their own
minds the location they would select If
they were the executive committee. So
far as public talk has gone, the following
are the sites from which selecUon will
probably be made:
City View Park.
Hawthorne Addition and Ladd's tract.
Abrams & Knox tract.
Others that have been spoken of are
Guild's Lake. Ladd's farm, on the Base
Line road, and Gravel Hill, northwest of
To Make Tonr of Inspection.
The executive committee, composed of
H. W. Corbett, H. W. Scott, Rufug Mal
lory, Paul Wcssinger, W. D. Wheelwright,
F. Dresser, A. H. Devers, Charles E.
Ladd and A. L. Mills, will Inspect all
these locations at once. They will begin
this morning. Mr. Corbett, Mr. Mallory,
Mr. Scott, Mr. Weesinger and Mr. Wheel
wright will start from the First National
Bank at 9:30 o'clock on their first tour
of Inspection. They will go to the City
Park, where they will be Joined by Dr.
T. L. Eliot and L. L. Hawkins, who will
point out to them the advantages of the
City Park location and from its high
places show them the kingdoms of the
world and the glory thereof.
What the City Parle Offers.
Dr. Eliot and Mr. Hawkins are strong
advocates of the City Park site. They
say the landscape and the elevations of
the hills back of Portland can be devel
oped into scenic attractions such as have
been seen at no other exposition In any
part of the world. They suggest that if
this site were adopted, a unique system
of driveways and of distribution of the
fair attractions could be made over the
high hills back of Portland. They would
use the park blocks, which begin at Sal
mon street, and extend southward to the
foothills. The hills they would thread
with a boulevard that would lead up to
Portland Heights by an imperceptible
grade, through Governor's Park, -five acres,
owned by the city. The driveway could
then run northward along the elevated
ridge between the city and the Canyon
road. By a suspension bridge. It could
cross the Canyon road ravine to the res
ervoirs and City Park. From the City
Park the route might run back to the
rock crusher on the Barnes road by a
level grade, and then up King's Heights
and through Macleay Park, owned by the
city, to the Cornell road. This boulevard
would offer a panorama that would be
unsurpassed by any scenery of the world.
In the City Park, the fair buildings
could be placed, and they could remain
permanent structures, on land owned by
the city, after the exposition was over.
Besides, all money spent for landscape
Improvements would leave Its results al
ways with the city. In the next three
years the Park Commission will have $50,
000 to spend, and a large part of this
money, could le used in connection with
the Lewis and Clark fund. Irf the City
Park are 41 acres of land. The Water
Commission owns In behalf of the city CO
acres adjoining. Just south, along the
Canyon road, the Ladd estate has 20
acres. Contiguous thereto Is the property
of ex-Governor Grover, and of the Haw
thorne and AInsworth estates, which all
together would afford about 100 acres
TRYING TO GET IN OUT OF THE STORM.
' Ttes.. MI''-iMwi f i
more, making about 200 acres. West of
the City Park Is available land in abund
ance, so that the area of the location
could be raised to 400 acres and over.
This would probably be more than ample,
since the Chicago Exposition covered 633
acres, the Paris 336 acres, and the Buffalo
350 acres. The St. Louis Fair will cover
All these advantages of the City Park
location will be cited this morning by
Dr. Eliot and Mr. Hawkins.
Tracts on East Side.
Hawthorne Addition has 30 acres avail
able, and Ladd's tract adjoining contains
about 100 acres. C- E. Ladd said last
night that the executors of the Ladd es
tate have not yet decided whether to sub
mit a proposal, and will not decide be
fore next week.
Hawthorne Park has an abundance of
spring water, and two very beautiful arti
ficial lakes could be made. This location
Is the only one that will be offered In
the heart of the city.
Five Hundred Acres Here.
The Terwllliger tract comprises about
500 acres. Its northern limit is about a
mile south of the Courthouse. It is owned
by Mrs. Charles W. Cartwright, Thomas
M. Richardson and sons, and Hiram Ter
wllliger. The tract is nearly a mile
square. Its western part Is hilly and of
high elevation, and Its eastern part bor
ders on the river, and has about 100 acres
of low level ground. The Terwllliger heirs
will offer a large tract to the city.
At City View Park.
The City View tract has ITS acres. East
of it are 30 or 40 more acres available,
and north is another 60 acres, such as
would be well adapted for artificial lakes
or lagoons. The large tract has been en
tirely cleared. Its highest elevation Is
about 85 feet above the river, which
washes its western limit This entire lo
cation offers about 300 acres.
There Are Also Others.
The Peninsula has about 300 acres. It Is
the site of Columbia University.
The Abrams & Knox tract Is of about
COO acres, east of the Portland Flouring
The Ladd farm on the Base Line rood
has about 400 acres.
Gravel Hill, northwest of Irvington, has
about 400 acres. Its highest elevation is
about 500 feet
Guild's Lake. property has a large area.
Its owners have as yet made no effort
to attract the fair.
NEW JUSTICE PARTY.
Its Founder Suggests Hearst as a
Candidate for President.
WASHINGTON, April 25. Hon. W. R.
Vaughn, the founder of the new Justice
party which "bears his name, said today:
"The party has come to stay. Justice
will be our slogan, for all men or women,
be they white, black, yellow or red. We
are not working In the Interest of any
particular Presidential candidate; we are
playing no favorites. We shall select as
our standard-bearer the man who comes
nearest to representing our Ideals and the
principles in our platform. Personally,
however, I am Inclined very-much toward
William R. Hearst If the Republicans
wish to win votes In the South they can.
not do better than to nominate Theodorr
Roosevelt He Is half Southern and the
people like his dauntless courage."
Indorses Shaffer's Policy.
WHEELING, W. Va.. April 25. The
wage committee of the Amalgamated
Association convention Is preparing an
elaborate argument In favor of the course
followed by the signing of the scales, and
will defend President Shaffer's policy
vigorously. A minority report will be
presented. This Is about the only matter
that may occasion debate In the conven
tion. Little doubt exists that the scales
will be Indorsed. It is said the President's
policy was Indorsed from start to finish
by all the committees.
FURNISH IS HONORED
Salem Republicans Give Him
a Warm Welcome.
YOUNG MEN'S CLUB TO FRONT
Its Members Break PInn for a Quiet
Reception Candidate for Gov
ernor Wejl Impresses People
at the Capital City.
SALEM, April 25. W. J. Furnish, Re
publican nominee for Governor of Ore
gon, arrived in Salem this evening, and
was tendered an enthusiastic Teceptlon
by Salem Republicans. Although the re
ception committee had planned a quiet.
Informal event, the Republicans refused to
acquiesce In this arrangement. Two hun
dred young men, who had Just organ
teed a Republican club, marched to the
hotel and gave three rousing cheers for
Furnish. They then disbanded and par
ticipated in the reception In the parlors of
the Willamette Hotel.
. Mr. Furnish reached Salem on the 6:20
train from Portland, and was met by Dr.
J. N. Smith and J. D. Lee, members of
the reception committee. He was taken in
a carriage to the Willamette Hotel, where
he was formally called upon by all the
members of the reception committees ap
pointed by the two Republican clubs.
Large numbers of residents of Salem soon
began to arrive at the hotel, and until
late tonight the hotel lobby was thronged
with state and county officials and hun
dreds of citizens who enjoyed the warm
hand-grasp of the prospective Governor.
While those attending were mostly Re
publicans, there were also many mem
bers of other parties who called to pay
their respects to the Republican nom
inee. The pleasing personality and genial
greeting of Mr. Furnish, together with
his natural simplicity of manner, have
already made for him many friends in
Salem. He will remain in Salem tomor
row, and will receive citizens of Salem
during part of the day. As tomorrow will
be Saturday, there will be many people In
from the country, and from neighboring
small towns, and most of these will take
advantage of the opportunity to meet Mr.
When it was first announced that the
Republican nominee for Governor would
visit Salem, plans were, commenced look
ing to a public demonstration. In defer
ence to the wishes of Mr. Furnish it was
decided, however that the reception
should be a quiet one. The latter plans
were followed so ifar as the committee
had any control, but the Young Men's
Republican Club insisted upon manifest
ing its good feeling In the old-fashioned
way. Mr. Furnish came from Portland
unattended, except that J. M. Poorman,
state committeeman for Marlon County,
Joined him at Woodburn and accompanied
him to the capital.
Mr. Furnish declined to bo Interviewed
this evening, save to express his grati
fication for the warm welcome he had re-
celved from the citizens of Salem. At 10
o'clock tomorrow morning Mr. Furnish
will call upon all the state officials at the
Capitol. A public reception will" be held
from 11 o'clock until 2, at which latter
hour Mr. Furnish will visit the state insti
tutions. He will probably return to Port
land on the afternoon train.
There were two reception committees
at the station to welcome Mr. Furnish to
the city. The committee named by Presi
dent Gatch from the Salem Republican
Club consisted of John H. McNary, Dr.
J. N. Smith, Lieutenant C. A. Murphy,
J. D. Lee and W. J. Culver, who Is chair
man of the Marion County Central Com
mittee. The Young Men's Republican
Club, of Salem, which has just been or
ganized, was represented by H. D. Pat
ton, R. D. Gilbert, C. L. McNary and F.
