ANNEX TO BE CONSTRUCTED
Visitors Will Be Able to Go Throug'i
a Miniature Mine Complete in
Every Detail, and See How
Work Is Done.
Negotiations were practically com
pleted with a. big Colorado mining com
pany yesterday for the installation at
the Lewis and Clark "Exposition of a
stamp mill, concentration plant and
other mining raachlnerj-. showing the
treatment accorded raw ores in con
verting it Into bullion. This will form
a. valuable addition to the mining ex
hibit, which promises to be the most
notable ever made.
The company In question is the Colo
rado Fuel & Iron Company, one of the
largest of its kind 'in existence. The
proposition was made to the Exposi
tion management in the form of an of
fer to install the machinery providing
Oregon mining men would furnish suf
ficient ore to keep the machinery busy
during Exposition hours. After a can
vass of Oregon producers the Exposi
tion management was able to assure
the company yesterday that no diffi
culty will be experienced in supplying
all the ore that will be required.
Annex to Be Built.
It is possible that an annex to the
Mining building will be required for
the new working exhibit as the space
in the main building is now well taken
and no great allotments can be made to
one enterprise since the Interests of
individuals and districts which wish to
participate must be protected.
General interest is being displayed
In the Lewis 'and Clark mining ex
hibit. Miners and mining men all over
the country are preparing their choic
est ores for shipment here and, judg
ing from the number of offers of min
srals now on file at Exposition head
quarters, there will be more ores on.
hand than can possibly be shelved. This
will necessitate the selection of choice
specimens, .although it will not cause
any exhibit to be ruled out, as all ex
hibitors will be given a chance.
The feature of the mining -department
which is exciting most interest
is the shaft and tunnel which are to
be dug under the Mining buildjng. This
will be the most realistic reproduction,
of a mine ever shown at an Exposition.
There will be levels, drifts, timbers,
hoists, a dump, tunnel-cars, automatic
drills, blasting and all the other things
known to tho realm of underground
mining. The visitor who goes into the
mine will emerge with, a full idea of
the meaning of underground mining.
The shaft will be 40 feet deep, while
the tunnel will extend under the upper
portion of the grounds for a 'distance
of several hundred feet, beginning at
the bottom of the shaft under the Min
ing building and emerging oh St

Many Will Visit Portland During the
Jay Boyd, a Chicago advertising pub-"
Usher, who recently completed a tour -of
140 towns In the Mississippi Valley In "the
interest of hit publications and inci
dentally in the interest of the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, with which he has had
business relations, forwarded a 'report to
Exposition headquarters yesterday of the
existing sentiment regarding the Exposi
tion. Mr. Boyd states that he found In
terest general and was particularly im
pressed with the number of young people
he talked with and heard of who are com
ing to Portland next year on their wedding
trips. His communication, in part, is as
"My trip has taken me to 140 towns in
the section named. I have been particular
to talk to every class of men with whom I
came in contact. From the head officials
of the railroad to the brakeman on
freights, from hotel proprietors to the
'bell hop,' from the manufacturer to the
breadwinner, from the merchant to the
carti boy, from the bank president to the
bookkeeper, from the managing editor to
the 'devil.' And from these and many
other sources In and around Chicago, Min
neapolis, St. Paul, Sioux City, Des Moines,
Ccflar Rapids and Marshalltown, a uni
versal idea seems to prevail that I might
sum up as follows: 'We are going to the

WAGER ON ATTENDANCE.
Estimates That There Will Be 2,000,
000 Paid Admissions to. Fair. '
The question of attendance at the Expo
sition is one which is exciting consider
able attention and discussion. Inci
dentally a number of wagers have already'
been laid. The man who wants to bet
there will be fewer than a million people
at the Exposition can get liberal odds on
his money, -while action can be had on a
bet that there will be fewer than 1,7.00,000,
paid admissions during the four and a half
months of the Fair.
It is figured out that there are 5,000.000
people in the country directly tributary
to Portland and 130.000 in Portland. Port
land people will attend on an average of
once a week, while large numbers from
the surrounding territory will go possibly
three or four times during the Exposition.
It is figured that from these sources as
well as the heavy Eastern patronage not
less than 10.000 people will pass through
the gates each day. This multiplied by
the 1SS days of the Fair gives 1,360.000.
By many, however, 10,000 per day is not
regarded as a Fair average attendance.
It is urged by these that there will be
100,000 people at the opening day celebra
tion while'tbe-attendance on. amaber of'
the big special dayswill be fully half that
figure and the average dally attendance
-will not fall below 15,000.
TO HONOR THE LTTET.TJNQS.
Fathers of Oregon's Orchards to Be
Perpetuated by Monument.
The State Horticultural Society, when
it meets in January for its annual con
vention, will make provision to honor the
memory of Hennlson and Seth Luelllng,
the two pioneers who, in 1S47, brought the
first fruit trees from Iowa to Oregon
across the plains.
A movement Is now being started
among the members of the Horticultural
Society having as its object the erection
of a monument in memory of the fathers
of the Oregon orchards. The Luellinga
were well-known residents of Milwaukie,
In the vicinity of which town they settled
when first coming to Oregon in 1S47. It is
therefore thought by some of the mem
bers of the society, who are interested in
the movement, that the proper place for
the monument would be at Milwaukie, but
others think that It would be better to
place the memorial on the Capitol grounds
at Salem. The question will be one of
the first to be decided upon the assembling-of
the annual convention of the so
ciety. The Luelllng brothers came to Oregon
from their Iowa home in 1847. bringing
with them several hundred grafted year
ling trees. The trees "were planted In a
box the size of a wagon bed and were
hauled across the plains, the trip taking -six
months. During this time the trees
were watered carefully and tended with
great care, so that the larger number
reached Oregon ready to transplant- They
were set out on the Luelllng homestead
near Milwaukie and from them were
sprouted nearly all of the old-time orch
ards. In the Spring following the planting of
the new orchard the trees yielded a. single
large, red apple, a curiosity to see which
the settlers came for miles around until
a hard and beaten path was made from
the farmhouse to the tree.
Seth Luelllng was the originator of the
now famous Bing and Black Republican
cherries which have made for themselves
such a noted place in the lists of fruits.
The Bing cherry was named for Ah Bing,
the faithful Chinese servant who had been
In the Luelllng family for a number of
years, and who left Portland but a short
time ago to live the remainder of his
years in China, made comfortable by the
small fortune accumulated by him while
In the service of Mr. Luelllng.
The State Board" of Horticulture will
devote a part of its biennial report to the
history of the Luellings and will incor
porate pictures of the old orchard, to
gether with those of its founders and of
the pioneer home.

NOT ON ELIGIBLE LIST.
Civil-Service Commission Has This to
Say About Copland.
The Civil Service Commission held a
meeting yesterday afternoon and in
structed Secretary McPherson to notify
City Treasurer Werleln that J. P. S.
Copland, the clerk in his office, was not
upon the eligible list. City Auditor Dev

Copland's pay will be held up, should

of the month.
All payrolls go to the commission office
that the secretary may certify that all
the employes, except those under tem
porary appointments, are upon the eligi
ble lists. If they are not, the payroll is
not marked "O. K." and the Auditor has
no right to draw a warrant for payment.
"They're getting at it in the right way
now," said Mr. Werleln after he had re

perfect right to do this, but they were

Judge John H. Scott, of Salem, the
champion of good roads in the state, has
directed his attention toward Multnomah

Chamber of Commerce to the effect that
unless some person or persons in Port

will come into the city and organize a
good roads league of his own.
The Chamber of Commerce will send a
large delegation to the annual convention
of the Good Rjoads Association, which is
to meet In Salem on December 13. At that
time the question of an active effort on
the part of Multnomah County for the
promotion of better counts roads through
out the rural districts will be taken up
and discussed. It is probablo that some
action will be taken toward appointing a
permanent committee whose duty it shall
be to look after the condition 'of the coun

IS POLITICS IN IT?
Municipal Investigation Takes
a New;Tufftr .
SYSTEM UNDER PUBLIC GAZE
To City Engineer's Defense That Po
litical Organization Named His
Men, Mr. Boise Answers'. He
How far politics of the machine-
made order is concerned in starting the
rumors against the City Engineer's de
partment, and also how many of the
employes of that department are
placed and controlled by political in
fluence is something those now directly
interested In the investigation want
to know. City Engineer Elliott's alle
gations as published yesterday, that ho
has nothing to do with the appoint
ment of the inspectors, but that the
political organization had, gave a" new
turn to the Inquiry.
Mr. Elliott has said that he believed
W. F. Matthews was after his scalp.
For the past week it has been reported
that Mr. Matthews and "W. L. Boise, the
chairman of the County Central Com
mittee, had fallen out, and that the
Council had begun the investigation
by Mr. Matthews' request. Thus dis
credit would be thrown upon Mr. Boise.
But Mr. Boise declares that the very
best of feeling prevails between him
self and Mr. Matthews.
"As to the appointment of men in
the City Engineer's department, I only
know that I have asked Mr. Elliott to
put on three men," says Mr. Boise. "He
did so. How many others were recom
mended to him before I became county
chairman I do not know."
Whatever of politics there was be
hind the scenes before, Mr. Elliott's
statement was the first open declara
tion of the alleged state of affairs."
As to the method of appointment to
regular positions, it is involved in
enough red tape to stock a department
store. The Civil Service Commission

tions for certain positions will be held.

cause he was not satisfied with the find
ings of the Council committee's experts.
Profound secrecy Is observed as to the
tenor of the report. The engineers do
not consider that R. B. Lamson and N.
Li. King, who were appointed by the
Mayor to represent the property owners
of -the district, belong to the commission.
Therefore, two reports will probably be
made. And It Is equally probable that
the Teport of the engineers will differ
widely from the report or the property
owners. R. L. Gllsan. of the Executive
Board, was also along during the exam
ination of the big brick tube, and It is
probable that he will have a report of his
own to make to the Executive Board,
which meets this afternoon.
As to the condition of the sewer, it
was reported yesterday that the two
property owners who went through It,
had declared privately that the first com
mittee of experts had made too mild a
report, that the sewer was In far worse

Executive Board has shied at for the
past several weeks, but it is probable
that It will be heard at the meeting to

It Is not at all probable that the Mayor
will make public the report submitted to
him by the men he personally employed.
But' the substance of the report may be
ascertained by the report he makes to
