From Special Commissioner Colin H.
Mclsaac. who is at present in Madison,
a message was received at Exposition
headquarters yesterday. The text of
the message was as follows: "Bill in
troduced for $50,000. Expect to pass
for $30,000." The Exposition officials,
notwithstanding the fact that they had
been repeatedly assured that "Wiscon
sin would do nobly by the Fair, were
highly elated at this message.
What Wisconsin Will Do.
It is the intention of Wisconsin to
erect a state pavilion at the Exposition
and to house therein one of the most
complete exhibits to be made. Tho pa
ilion will be of pleasing design, for
which the plans have already been
drawn. Jt will bo constructed imme
diately upon the arrival of the Wiscon
sin State Commissioner in Portland.
The exhibit will be varied and will
show the resources of the state. When
first approached by the representatives
of the Exposition, Governor La Fol
lette, of Wisconsin, oxpressed himself
as heartily in accord with the idea of
Ms state making on exhibit at the
fair. He approved of tho. matter in
his message to the Legislature and
asked the Legislators to prepare and
rasa a bill immediately. The bill has
row been introduced.
It is in dairying and forestry that the
State of Wisconsin win make its prin
cipal representations. In these mat
ters Wisconsin feels that sho is closely
allied to Oregon, and It was this as
much as anything also that persuaded
Governor La Follettoand his Leglsla-.
tors to rogard the Lewis and Clark Ex
rnsltion in a favorable light. The re
sources of Wisconsin in forestry and.
dairying will be well displayed, while
tho educational display and tho agri
cultural and horticultural exhibits will
bo in keeping with tho tone of tho rep
resentation. The great work of gath
ering these exhibits will begin imme
diately, and as rapidly as they are pre
pared they will be shipped to Portland,
to be placed in the state building as
soon as it is completed.

to Attack of Pneumonia.
CLATSKANIE. On, Jan. IS.Special.)
In the death of Cyrus Crane Lee, of
Clatskanie, Oregon has lost -another of
its stalwart pioneers. Mr. Lee was.
stricken with pneumonia, and, owing to
his advanced age, he Quickly succumbed

buried Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Lee was born in Montgomery Coun

later found tho young people members of
an emigrant train bound for California.
It took six months for the emigrant train
to reach Red Bluffs. CaL There Mr. Loe
and his wife settled. In 1S6S, a desire to
see Indiana again resulted in a return
East. There he remained until August,
when he came to Oregon, settling at

and the great Southwest have come to
regard the Exposition at Portland as a
local affair. They have come to the con
clusion that the states on the Pacific sea
board are the only sections of the world
which "will be benefited by the Fair. In
this they are mistaken. Many states out
sldes those through which the celebrated
Lewis and Clark expedition passed are
making preparations for even greater
things than were seen at the St. Louis

"What will Arkansas do? That is a
question which is being asked on every
side. Tho convening of tho Legislature
last Monday in this city has created still
greater interest in the attitude this state
will take In this matter. That there will
be grand exhibits of the resources of this
state ls certain. Tho mineral deposits
will be shown as never before attempted.

though it is a little early, parties are be

as a whole do not know what the Fair Is

"The statement that the buildings of the

with delight by the people ot this state.

One may go to Portland see every de

of time. These arc small things, but it
will be shown that they will affect tho ul

"Arkansas and Arkansans will "Hit the

less that fact will add materially to the
success of the Fair. The Oriental ex

many who would not otherwise attend.

Northwest Methodist Conference Goes :
With the Northwest Methodist confer- j
ence yesterday in the Taylor-Street Meth
odist Church there was a spirited ad
vocacy for closing the Lewis and Clark
World's Fair on Sunday, and the following
resolution was passed:
"Resolved. That it is the sense of this
body that the gates of the Lewis and
' Clark Fair should be closed on the Lord's
! day. as were those of the Louisiana Pur
i chase Exposition at St. Louis."
Bishop D. H. Moore and Dr. Fletcher
L. Wharton were strongly In favor of
' Sunday oponing and although they spirlt
; edly fought the resplution to close Uie
, Exposition, it was finally passed. Bishop
j Moore advocated that a quiet exhibition
be maintained on Sunday for the benefit
, of those who could not visit the Fair
- grounds during the week. It was only

In the interest of the merchants ot thi
atate and the public generally we desire to
call attention to Houso bill No. - 34, and

Legislature. We believe that the effect of

In brief each ot thete bills requires the
recording of contracts of conditional sale
of personal property, and leases of iuoh
property with right ot purchase. House
bill No. 34 requires the contract to be ac
knowledged and to be recorded in any coun
ty into vrhlch the personal property may be
moved. Senate bill No. 4C requires the re
cording of the contract in the office ot the
County Clerk of the county In which the
vendee rerldes at the time he takes pos
session. Under either bill, compliance with
the law would require the recording of the
contract in a public record kept in the o-flee-
of the County Clerk. -the payment of
the fees therefor, and the execution of a
dltcharge or satisfaction of the contract

ts as necessary and legitimate as any other

It may be said that the possession of
rach goods elves a man a false basis oC
credit, or that he may sell the goods as
his own and cheat the purchaser. As a mat
ter of fact, by far the greater portion of
conditional sales involve goods which are
exempt from attachment or execution ex
cept for the purchased price, and are in no
sense a basis of credit. If any idea of this
kind ls at the bottom of these bills, tho i
author would do well to provide a general
bureau tor the registration of private af
fairs making It obligatory, under heavy
penalty, for each man and woman to re
cord weekly a detailed sworn statement of
his or her property and debts, so as to
establish a true basis ot credit. The bill's

that direction; and there Is no us going at
Think Bill Unreasonable.
The goods sold on conditional sales are not
ordinarily articles ot commerce after they
pass out of the merchant's hand. Posses
sion ot personal property .never establishes
ownership, and anyone who buys such prop
erty does so at hi peril, in reliance upon
his own knowledge or the personal Integrity
ot the seller, rather than upon his pos
session of the goods. Conditional sales ar

these bills are unreasonable.
Compliance with these proposed laws
would not only be exceedingly distasteful

but it would be vcrr cumbersome and expensive-

for ten minutes laat night, while- General
C. F. Beebe, of the BxecuUve Board, un

Police Hunt, before the two reliefs, stated
that It would not be accepted by the po

is taken to mean that Bullus will be dis
honorably discharged at a near dato, as
Chief Hunt wished this privilege.
Patrolman Bullus Is a member of the

Moore. Why It was Jiecessary for the
policemen, of the second relief, under the
command of Captain Bailey, to be called
from their sleep to be in attendance, ls

discussing the probable reason. At any
rate, such a thing is without precedent
and has caused considerable feeling among
