"N Keep Crowds Till Midnight
Not even an unprbpltlous morning could
spoil the celebration' of Labor day in
Portland yesterday. It was a holiday for
the people, and the people enjoyed It;
Though perhaps there was less display
this year than last, yet the holiday has
never Before been so generally observed
in this city as it was yesterday
Where the greatest holiday crowd con
gregated was on the baseball grounds
orj Hawthorne avenue. Fully S00O men,
women and children, particularly the chil
dren, -passed through the gates during the
day. From 10 o'clock in the morning
until nearly midnight Hawthorne Park
and the baseball field were the scene of a
general celebration. n -
Observance of the -day closed late last
evening with the dancing amid the trees
of the beautiful park. The feet on the
dancing platform began to trip""ahd slide
early in the afternoon, and with a short
Intermission in the early evening, there
we're waltzes and polkas and all the
others until street-car time.
The commltteeyfrom the Federated
Trades Council, which had in charge the
celebration of the union men of the city,
may well congratulate themselves upon
the success of their labors. Holiday as
It was for every one of the spectators. It
was hard work for the committee. Hand
kerchiefs were often brought into com
mission as the men with the gay com
mittee badges ran from one part of the
spacious grounds to another.
The programme was varied enough to
suit the taste of every one. There were
athletic sports, there was dancing, two
lively baseball games, speeches and a
little bit of everything. And the every
thing was of a high class.
The "doln's" on the baseball fiel,began
at 10 o'clock. B. S. Pague, a local at
torney, and Harry Rogers, of the Typo
graphical Union, delivered short talks on
labor as related to unionism and kindred
The athletic events opened with a game
"between teams from the Broommakers'
and Leather- Workers' "Unions. The Team
Drivers' Union had issued a challenge to
all comers to meet them in a tug of war.
Taut the prowess of the teamsters appar
ently appalled the other men of valor on
the field, and no one came forward to test
After dinner there were footraces for
union men and their wives and daughters.
The grandstand was packed and heartily
applauded the winners in the various
One of the most laughable races of the
day was the potato race. Along a course
of 50 yards were strung large1 potatoes
of the Irish kind, one for every yard.
Five contestants entered the race. The
object was to run from the starting point,
pick up the potato and hurry back to the
line and deposit it As 50 potatoes meant
50 trips of as many yards each, the racers
soon became weary, but encouraged by
the shouts from their friends they kept
on 'until ready to fall from exhaustion.
Ray Lockwood secured a lead at the start
and" maintained it during the race.
It was nearly professional ball that was
exhibited by the teams dt the Iron Work
ers and Woodworkers' Unions. Though
errors were numerous each player helped
to put up a game that was worth seeing.
It looked like the carpenters were winners
for the first two innings, but their oppon
ents gradually worked their way up the
score board and won in an exciting finish
by a score of 7 to 4.
' What aroused more interest than any
other event of the day's festivities was
the drawing for the gate prizes. Coupons
attached to each ticket gave the holder
a chance to win sums from $10 to ?L When
the drawing was announced the diamond
filled with an eager throng, each member
secure In the belief that the 510 was al
ready nestling in his pocket.
The tickets were shaken in a gunny
sack and 11 drawn by a' little girl. The
11th drew prize No. 1, $10. A. R. Lawton,
the chairman of the committee, was the
stentor of the occasion. As he called off
the 11th number every one of the five or
six thousand in hearing, held his breath.
"Number 2432," said Mr.1 Lawton, and
the long-held breaths escaping could be
heard all over the field. George E.
McKern. of 401 Pacific street, was the
lucky man with the right number. G. B.
Hamilton, of the Osborn Hotel, won the
second prize of $3.
The following numbers have not yet
leen claimed: 2831, 2906. 757. 4598. 4591. 2948.
After the prizes had been awarded the
programme for the field was over, but the
dancing was going as merrily as ever.
In the glare of electric lights the dancers
enjoyed themselves until nearly midnight.
Then Labor day was.over for this year.

The Oregon State Mining Association
was organized yesterday and the follow
ing officers elected:
J. F. Wickham, Gallce, president; J. H.
Fisk, Portland, first vice-president; M. L.
Kaiser, Baker City, second vice-president;

It is the Intention of the associatiqn to
name a vice-president In each mining dis
trict of pregon in order that the Interests
of members may be -fully represented by
officers residing wherever the industry
has a footing. The appointment , of "these
I vice-presidents will be made later. The
headquarters of the association wju oe
maintained in Portland.
The most significant action taken by
the association yesterday was the passage
of a resolution calling upon the members
of the State Lewis and Clark Commission
to name a mining man, resident in Port
land, to take charge of the mining Inter
ests of the Fair. The resolution called for
the appointment of an assistant to be se
lected from Eastern. Oregon and another
to be chosen from Western Oregon.
Though the resolution referred only to
the mining work in connection with the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, its object
was to protest against the appointment
of Fred R. Mellis, of Baker City, as su
perintendent of the mining exhibit to be
made at St. Louis. Mr. Mellis was se
lected by the state commission last month.
but. it Is stated, has not yet accepted the
appointment. Mining men insist he Is
not in touch with the work throughout
the state and an exhibit collected by him
would not give all districts a good Show.
Moreover, they say he would make the
collection for private purposes.
The objection to Mr. Mollis is made clear
by the protest against the appointing of
anyone save a mining man resident in
Portland to take charge qf the work of
collecting the Lewis and dark Exposition
display. The exhibit to be made at t.
Louis will be saved as a nucleus of the
Lewis and Clark collection. It is be
lieved fhat the man who takes charge of
the first' work will be retained for the
Ever since the appointment of - Mr.
Mellis, mining men have been opposing It.
J. H. Fisk, of Portland, was the first se
lection of the state commission, but it
'was understood' at .the time of his se
lection that he would only erve a month.'
At the end of that time Mr. Mellis was ap
pointed. It Is likely if a Portland man
were selected as Mr. Mellis' successor,
that Mr. Fisk would be chosen.
The new association asked that the 1905
meeting of the American Mining Congress
be held in Portland. A resolution Invit
ing this organization to come here dur

with enthusiasm, and last night .Secreta'ry

WILL BUILD HALL
Evening: Star Grange, Patrons of
Husbandry, Raise Subscriptions.
At a well-attended meeting of Evening
Star Grange No. 27, Patrons of Hus
bandry, held Saturday in Multnomah
Hall, It was decided to adopt the sub
scription plan Xof the erection of a two
story hall, and a committee was appoint
ed to raise money and proceed with the
work. In the afternoon the matter of a
hall was taken up. The proposition to
issue stock and build a hall by a stock
company was voted down. The grange
thought a building committee should pro
ceed to secure subscriptions for the build
ing fund, but Its work should be under
the direction of- the executive committee
of the grange. This building committee
is composed of J. W. Brock, N. J. Fake
and Mrs. Anna Lehman, and the execu
tive committee is composed of A. F. Mil
ler, Mrs.- H. L. Vail and Edward Carlson.
The grange, being Incorporated, has full
power to 'build the hall. Over $400 has
been subscribed. Judge John F. Caples,
G. Peterson and A. E. Nlblln have sub
scribed $50 each. A number have sub
scribed $25 and less. Only a small num
ber of the membership has been reached.
The agitation for' erection of a hall has
gone on for a year, but a:tJast has taken
definite form. The Multnomah Hall propi
erty win be sold and the money turned
into the building fund. It is expected
that over $1200 can be raised, which with
the money derived from the sale of the
Multnomah Hall and ground, will provide
a buldlng fund. The new hall will cost
about $2000. F. E. Beach, president of
