"With tho oDenlnsr of tho Fall month of
September construction work and real

derful Impulse. August Is generally re
garded as the deadest month of all the
twelve among the real estate dealers, and
cow that Is past business has gone up
ward with a boom.
A real estate transaction. In which $35,
$00 actually changed hands, was the start
ing gun. The Eastern half of the ground
occupied by the buildings known as the
Widows' Row, fronting on Washington
street between Seventh and Park, has

jBlazler. The property was purchased by
Mr. Peterson a few months ago from
ISrindstaff & Blaln, the brokers in the
bresent transfer. By holding the property
cor a few months Mr. Peterson cleaned up
$5,000. A three-story building is to bo
Jerected to be occupied by stores. The deal
was closed Saturday, and it is reported
lhat another with some reference to this
is about to be consummated.

Js keeping fully apace with it. Building
permits taken out last week at the office
pf the City Engineer totaled a higher sum
than for any similar period since the busy
Bays of last March. Tho amount, $115,-
40, shows that the building business for
Autumn promises to be prolific of work
Sor every one engaged In that line.
Among tho building permits are several
or large buildings, whose cos$ runs up
into thousands of dollars. Henry Wemme
is about to erect a three-story brick struc
true at Front and Columbia streets. It's
cost will be $13,000. Mr. Wemme is also
having dug a foundation at Seventh and
Gllsan streets, where a building will soon
be constructed to take the place of that
destroyed by Are last June.

good-sized strip of ground and will coBt

Fair. Of course, the. board of directors are
very busy with the work that is more
properly theirs, but their efforts will bo
largely fruitless unless this matter of
providing for visitors is looked after by
some one In the near future.
By an appropriation of $500,000 the peo
ple of Oregon are committed to a genu
ine support of the Lewis and Clark Ex
position. They want it to be a success
in every sense of the word. It. is. In
deed, xi great undertaking and the board
of directors are entitled to the hearty
co-operation of every citizen, as they no
doubt will welcome suggestions which
may be offered along rational lines.
Besides the defect of insufficient hotel
accommodations is the general lack of in
formation among the people of the United
States not only about the approaching Ex
position, but about Lewis and Clark
themselves who they were and what they
did. 6ome of tho stories which have been
printed In this connection have seemed
absurd, but none of them has been more
so than many most of us have encoun
tered. The present generation is not being
schooled In the great work done by those
Intrepid explorers, and neither was the
last When a great Eastern paper sends
a special representative to this Coast to
write up conditions and to give some at
tention to the proposed Lewis and Clark
Fair, and he begins by presenting him
self to the Exposition headquarters and
inquires of an officer "where Lewis' and
Clark can be found," since he "wants to
get his information at first hand," it is
time something were done along educa
tional lines. Less than a week ago an
Eastern visitor wanted to know what spe
cial Interest Lewis and Clark had In tho
proposed Exposition that they "wanted
to get It up."
The Buffalo Exposition was gotten up
by Buffalo and the Omaha Exposition by
Omaha, so it Is presumed by the touring
Easterner that the Lewis and Clark Ex
position Is being gotten up by Lewis and
During tho last session of the Mis
souri Legislature a bill was Introduced
appropriating $10,000 to purchase a bronze
statue of Thomas H. Benton, to place In
tho rotunda of the State Capitol build
ing, but It was so vehemently opposed by
one member, who stated that "although
his father had supported Benton for
United States Senator, ho himself regard
ed him as a bully, a blackguard and an
assassin," that it was defeated, and that
On some of these questions the present
generation needs some kindergarten les
sons of the most pronounced character.
Casting aside all commercial considera
tions In connection with desirable re
sults from the Fair, the revival of an
Interest In tho great historical event
which occurred hero 100 years ago will be
one of positive benefit.
It is a safe assumption that many
members of Congress can be found who
have but a vague idea of who Lewis and
Clark were and why they seem to have
a place in our National history. And yet
it Is not far from the truth, if. Indeed, It
departs from It at all, to say that the
sending of Lewis and Clark to this coun
try in 1804 was the greatest single con
ception of Thomas Jefferson's public ca
reer. It was his alone, while in the mat
ter of the Declaration of Independence,
as well as other events of National con
cern In the Revolutionary period, he had
the assistance of practically all the great
men of his time. But he was the only
outspoken expansionist of his day, al
though the general idea that his was the
credit for the Louisiana purchase Is his
torically wrong. He really had nothing
to do with it, and hesitated long, before
he consented to accept the unauthorized
purchase made by his Ministers to France.
Ho wanted the territory badly enough,
but its acquisition was in direct viola
tion of his peculiar "strict construction"
ideas of the Federal Constitution. Al
lowing these scruples to be overcome by
his great desire to expand our territorial
area, however, he finally submitted the
treaty to the Senate, and, after its ratifi
cation, at once organized the Lewis and
Clark expedition in order to push our
Western boundary to the Pacific Ocean.
It was a signal success and laid the foun
dation for our claim in alter years
against that of Great Britain.
In many things Jefferson wasv erratic
and impractical. He did many things to
undermine the administration and popu
larity of Washington, even while a mem
ber of his Cabinet, but he had a just con
ception of the magnitude and value of
the western half of the continent that
was shared by none of his contempo
rarles. Tho Lewis and Clark Exposition
will be largely a tribute to the' states
manship of Thomas Jefferson, will be an
event of the greatest National Import
ance, and should meet with hearty Con
gressional aid in its support. It will re

A DISCURSIVE LETTER.
5Sut It Touches Several Topics of
SALEM, Or., Sept. 5. (To the Editor.)
-Now that the Knowles Incident is a
.closed one, for a time, at least, it is
'hoped, it is in order to continue tho agi
'tatlon looking to the provision of more
-hotel room for the traveling public In
Portland. The situation in this respect
is one that should not be permitted to
continue for another year. This would
be true if no unusual event were to be
expected, but with extensive preparations
being made for the Lewlsand ClarK ex
.position In 1305, the further apparent neg-
llect of this important feature of the Fair
will be hurtful to that enterprise in the
extreme. For to amply provide for vlsi
rtors is one of the most Important ele
ments of the invitation to become visitors
The reputation of Portland In the matter
of being unable to care for the ordinary
traveling public has already gone abroad
and unless this reputation is positively
(removed long before the opening of the
rPalr it would be better to abandon it al
itogether. The mere knowledge that the
iiotels are full all the time with our own
people will prevent thousands from at
tending at all, and its success will de
pend. not on the character of tho ex
hibit, but on the attendance.
If Ringllng's circus had all the attrac
tions that are now a part of the show,
but no people attended it, the enterprise
would be called a colossal failure, and If
it was generally Ttnown that It made no
provision for seating its spectators, it
could depend on having none. These aux
iliaries must be lobked after, and while
ihe directors of the Exposition cannot
iuild hotels they should certainly see that
pome one who can do so shall be suffi
ciently interested in tho matter to take
3lold of it at once.
There is scarcely a day In the year that
our hotels do not turn away a throng of
people who cannot "le supplied with. ac
commodations. Even if. no Exposi
tion were pending it would bo a good ln
.vostment for some man or men having
the means to erect a hotel on tho general
plan and grade of the Perkins and the
Imperial. But If present conditions con
tinue in this respect, the fact, even now
generally known abroad, will prevent the
attendance of thousands who would oth
erwise bo glad to accept the opportunity
to visit this Coast during tho year of the

the organization of a mining association
The promoters of the plan believe the
organization of a mining men's associa
tion will lead to more favorable consid
eration at the hands of the Legislature
and In the preparation of exhibits of met
als for Eastern and local exhibition. The
objection to the corporation tax Is prob
ably shown more strongly than anythlnj
else by mining men. They protest that
tho burden Is one they cannot stand and
will have the tendency to cripple their
operations. The organization of a state
mining bureau is urged and mining men
want more privileges in tne use oi um
ber for the purpose of developing claims
and by prospectors. All of these ques
tlons will likely come up at today's meet
Mineral Exhibit at St. Louis.
Thero Is a disposition among mining
men in Western Oregon to feel that their
interests at St. Louis may not receive
proper attention. The fact that Commis
sioner Mlllls resides in Eastern Oregon
Is regarded as an Indication that his sec
tion of the state would naturally receive
more attention than any other district.
As a result, it is likely that Western
Oregon mining men wllf take steps dur

and provide for the collection of a satis

Mission of Oregon Delegates to Con

An effort is to bo made to get the gen
eral convention of tho Christian Church
for Portland In 19(6.
This year the supreme body of the
Christian Church will meet at Detroit,
Mich., October 16 to 22, and for 1904, the
convention Is already pledged to St. Louis.
In 1905 tho convention should come to the
Coast, if the general policy of distribu
tion, recognized in the past, is to be
adhered to, and Rev. J. F. Ghormley and
Rev. 4-lbyn Esson, pastors of the local
Christian churches, believe that it will
be. At any rate the Oregon delegation
to the Detroit convention this year will
make an effort to bring the 1905 conven
tion to Portland, and in this effort has
enlisted the actlvo support and co-opera
tion of the Board of Trade, through Sec
retary Max Shlliock. A strong invita
tion to the general convention to meet
in this city In 1905 has already been drawn
up by Mr. Shillock, who will also provide
the Oregon delegation with a liberal sup
ply of printed matter and photographs
descriptive of the state, its resources
and scenic attractions, before Its depar

Founders of Portland Used in Select-

F. W. Pettygrove, son of F. W. Petty-
grove, one of the founders of Portland,
and the man who named the city, has in
his possession the copper cent with which
his father won the right to select the
name. He is a commercial traveler for
a San Francisco house, and naturally
sots great store by this cent, which he
has shown to many here on his vlsit3 to
.this city. Some of his friends have be
sought him to turn this cent over to tho
Oregon Historical Society to be preserved.
but he has not been ablo to mako up his
mind to do this. George H. Hlmes, sec
retary of the society, has been advised to
wrestle with Mr. Pettygrove, and It Is
not unlikely that he may succeed In se
curing this historical coin. Mr. Petty
grove has also in his possession the Bible
used on the occasion of tho first sermon
ever preachhed in Portland, which with
the cent was presented to him by his
father as a keepsakeiv.

Repeal or Enforce the Statutes.
PORTLAND, Sept. 6. (To the Editor.)
Mayor Williams' course in "regulating"
gambling, etc., rather than enforcing the
statutes as he finds them breeds disre
spect of law. The public welfare requires
deference to law, and this cannot bo had
where men m high places directly or In
directly exhibit a contempt of law. For
such conduct the Mayor should be as
amenable to punishment as are the mem
bers of the Illinois mob who were convlct

the law of the state- No worthy member

PORTLAND, Or., Sept. 6. (To the Edl
tor-Oregonlan:) The interview published
In The Oregonlan Sunday quotes me as
saying that I had concluded to retire
from the office of supreme master artisan
and devote my energies to my private
business, which for nearly nine years had
been sacrificed on the altar of friendship.

drinking coffee dally but the longer
continued drinking it the worse I felt.
I suffered with heart trouble, headaches
and dizziness. Then I had such an un

cording to directions and we have used it
now in our family for nearly two years,
drinking It twice a day. It agrees well
with all of us. My heart and bowel
troubles slowly but surely disappeared.
It Is seldom that I ever have a headache.
my nerves are steady and strong again
and I am otherwise strong and well. My
husband has been lately cured of his sick
headaches since we threw coffee out of
our home and have used Postum." Name
