TO HAVE EXTRA BUILDING

MANY NATIONS REPRESENTED
Paintings From Brushes of Masters,
Valued at Fabulous Sums, Will
Be on Exhibition, and Closely
Guarded Night and Day.
The scope -of the .fine arts and sculpture
exhibit at the Lewis and Clark Expos!
ton "has "become such that it will be im
perative to erect an additional building
in which to house the paintings and statu
ary which arc to be sent here by the vari
ous nations and art aMocIatlons.
No provision was made originally for a
line arts building, as it was not sure the
offerings of artists would be sufficient to
warrant an art gallery. But every nation
that is to participate in the exposition
has .signified an intention of bringing se
lect worksto properly represent the art of
uip country- or tnis reason a site nas
been set apart at tne Exposition grounds,
and action looking towards the construc
tion of the building will be taken immodi
atoly upon the return of President Goode
and staff from St. JuLs. The site Ik on
the lake front, fronting Gray Boulevard
Its size will be determined when the exact
amount of space required has been deter
Exhibit Will Be Notable.
That the art exhibit will be one of the
notable ones in :the history of expositions
is already assured. The paintings will be
from the best brushes of such art centors
as France, Italy, Germany and Russia.
The other nation will also have repre
sentative works here. For Instance, China
has decided to, send a famous collection of
fcrolls, done in six water colors, showing
omeial and religious ceremonies in the
imperial kingdom. China will also con
tribute albums of paintings from the best
artist? of Canton, Hongchow and Pekin.
As befits the nation of art. France will
have the most extensive exhibit here and
Exposition visitors will have an oppor
tunity of seeing the works of such mod
ern painters as Bonnat, Duran, Bou
gereau, Penner, Fleury. Besnard, Simon,
Monet, Constant and Menard.
It is not assured that any of the old
masters will be shown here, though some
may be included in the Italian art ex
hibit, which is now being selected from
the royal galleries by Sig. Zlgglo, who re
cently sailed from New York for Venice
for the express purpose of making the
More Painting Than Sculpture.
The greater portion. If not all of the ex
hibits, will bo made up from the works of
modern painters and sculptors. Sculpture
will, of necessity, take second placo in
point of scope, owing to the dangers and
difficulties of transportation.
Russia's art offering will be made by the
Russian Art Association of St. Peters
burg, and will be made up of paintings by
the notable modern Russia artists.
From far away Persia will come an
elaborate display of Oriental art The
Persian government has announced Its in
tention of sending a valuable collection of
rugs, paintings, pottery and tapestry. This
will be supplemented by the Jl.000,000 col
lection belonging to Dirkran Khan
Keklan. the Persian Exposition commis
sioner, who has just placed this valuable
collection at the disposal of Director of
Exhblts Henry E. Dosch. It will be
brought to Portland early In the Spring.
Just what the American school will send
has yet to be decided and the plans of
England, Japan. Holland. Switzerland,
Turkey and other nations are yet in
embryo. Germany has not designated the
nature of the art contributions from that
country, but it is expected the paintings
will be selected from the imperial pal
aces. The art display will be fabulous in
value. There will be not a few single
paintings worth, on the market, at least
5100.000. which is no uncommon price for
a good picture from tne brush of a mas
ter. The art display will represent more
money than will tie spent in producing the
entire Exposition and will be kept under
the closest guard day and night
SELECTS BUILDING SITE.
Coos County's Pavilion Is 'No't Mere
Coos County demonstrated that the
recent plans for a county pavilion is
not more idle - talk by sonding an' official-representative
to Portland yester
day for the purpose of selecting a
building site. L.. L. Deffenbaugh. rep
resenting the Coos County Chamber of
Commerce, reached Exposition head
quarters during the forenoon and was
escorted to the grounds by D. C. Free
man, who went over the dlfforent sites
with the visitor. Mr. Deffenbaugh de
cided on a plot of ground. 100 feet by
100 feet, situated a short distance north
and oast of the Plaza of States.
Coos County will have a building
force here at work shortly after the
first of the year. Mr. Deffenbaugh said.
The pavilion will be 50x60 feet, con
structed entirely out of Coos County
woods. The plans will shortly be ready
to be placed in the hands of a builder
The pavilion will- cost. $10,000.
Coos now loads the counties of the
state in the matter of Exposition en
terprise While Marlon, Clackamas
and several others have applied for
large space allotments. Coos County
bears the distinction of being the first
to provide for a separate exhibit pavil
ion. The funds are being provided by
enterprising merchants and citizens, no
appropriation having been made by the
Phil Sheridan's Blockhouse.
A historic log blockhouse which served
as the headquarters of General Phil Sher
idan during the Indian wars of 1S53-56,
now stands in good condition at a point
about 15 miles from Sheridan, Or. The
Exposition management may decide to
mo'e the structure to the Portland Ex
position some time during the Winter
Besides its value as a historical relic, th'e
structure is picturesque and would no
doubt be an attraction of great Interest
Band of Ostriches May Come.
A Los Angeles man wants to bring a
band of ostriches to the Exposition. In a
letter to headquarters he writes that he
has a large drove of the big birds and
would.be willing , to .-bring them all here
if he could get a space allotment on which
to build a corral. He wishes to have a
concession and to pay his expenses by
selling ostrich feathers, which, he says,
could be secured by the rather painful
method of allowing purchasers to pluck
a choice feather from one of the live

has asked for space-for a.perfurhe foun:

idea is to have a huge supply bottle of
perfume which will spout forth from

hours. He also states that he would be
willing to offer cash prizes for those

gallons, pints and ounces, of the supply
MEYERS' GOOD LUCK
MANY DOCTORS COMING.
Medical Association Convention Will
Be Largely Attended.
The meeting of the American Medical
Association In Portland next Summer will
f be one of the best and fn6st widely at
tended conventions of the Fair year. The
local committee on arrangements Is al
-ready beginning to receive Inquiries from
all parts of the country, seeking informa
tlon regarding the accommodations for
delegates and the possibility of securing
room for their wives and children. The
American doctors are apparently going to
come from many sections and attend in
This, however.- was anticipated by the
Portland doctors, who have agreed from
the start to throw open their homes to
the visitors, but it now seems as If even
such hospitality would not Insure room
sufficient for the delegates-, and a plan
has been hit UDon to cD-ODerate with Man
ager Bowers! of.-the Portland Hotel, and
leave the matter largely to him. By the
aid of the bureau which he has now in
working order, he can secure bcVvrejm 2000
and 3000 rooms in hotels, apartment
houses and private houses, which can bo
contracted for Id advance. Rates will bo
reasonable, much more so than in any
other Exposition city the country has
seen, for the Portland Hotel Itself will
charge but a moderate rate.
The doctors are not low to make their
contributions to the entertainment fund
necessary for the convention, and It
probable that the meeting here will be one
of the most enjoyable and memorable in
the history of the association. It Is ex
pectcd that 510.000 will be raised here in
Portland, and already considerable contrt
buttons have been made. The rest of the
state will also aid, and even outside near
by states will contribute. The Idaho Med
leal Society at a. recent meeting took up a
voluntary subscription and raised $000 on
Thte convention will be extremely Im
portant, and may result In medical discov
eries which will turn the eyes of the world
on this city. Doctors often save the re
suits of their Investigations for such oc
casions, and deliver addresses before the
assembly which prove to be discoveries
which revolutionize the medical science,
DUPIUS HOTEL BTJENS.
Oswego Hostelry a Victim of a Greedy
The disused Duplus Hotel at Oswego,
which lost Its trade several years ago,
when the Oregon Iron & Steel Company's
plant ceased operations, was burned to
the ground about 6 o'clock yesterday
morning, and as a consequence a portion
of the power of the Portland General
Electric Company from Oregon City was
shut off. Lighting plants in apartment-
houses and office buildings in this city
deriving their power from the Oregon
Olty electric plant were plunged Into
darkness for several hours, and many
trolley cars were forced to stand Idle.
A large pole standing In front of the
old hotel "building bore heavy power wires
and when the flames reached them there
was a brilliant electrical display which
was seen for a considerable distance -on
both sides of the river. The pole that
had weathered the blasts of many stormy
nights ulttmatoly went down beneath Its
load of wires, and it was at least four or
fli'o hours before enough cloctricity could
be harnessed and distributed to trolley
cars and elevators waiting for it The
hotel was built at a cost of $2000, whon
times were good around Oswego, but at
the time of the fire the two-story deso
late-looking frame structure was esti
mated to be worth $300. As to the cause
of the fire, there is no positive "knowledge.

won admiration for his beautlfully

York for the Portland Fair and that
this amount will be secured at the coin
ing session of the Legislature.
While no statement of the use to

modern appliances for the packing of
salmon and has a capacity of 75,000

period covering the poorest output of

Mr. Meyers the ownership of tho tug

Various properties of tho Pacific Paok-

Meyers is probably the only ono that
will be confirmed. In many cases tho
bids were so ridiculously small that the
courts would not entertain them, and
such properties will be again offered
for sale next Saturday along with those
upon which no bids were rocelved.
The former sale was disappointing In
many ways, and it is a safe prediction
that when everything Is disposed of
there will be but little in tho way of
remuneration for the creditors and
stockholders of the defunct combine.
The Demlng & Gould Company did
not enter Into tho sale to the extent
expected. They had only two bids in.

The tactics adopted by the Alaska
