Opening day at the Lewis and Clark
ExDOsition will be made one of the
most memorable occasions in the his
tory of Portland and of the entire West.
Details of the opening demonstrations,
which were completed yesterday with
a few minor exceptions, show that such
events will take place as have never
before been witnessed In the "Western
country, and such crowds will be as
sembled as have never before gathered
in a "Western metropolis. In short, it
has been decided to start the "World's
Fair of the "West on" its course In
manner befitting the great enterprise.
"While In the past it has been thought
advisable to keep the gateJs closed until
the electric flash from the Presidents
office In "Washington sets the machinery
In motion, that plan has been aban
doned. It was announced yesterday
that the gates would open early on the
morning of June 1. This will enable
the crowds to assemble gradually dur
lng the morning.
The first demonstration will be a big
parade about the grounds. In which
military, civic and spectacular features
will be the attractions. Many bands
will be in this parade and thousands of
men and hundreds of horses will ap
pear In the pageant.
Following this -will be big open-air
exercises at which addresses will be
made by men prominent in the affairs
of the city, state and Nation. Open
lng prayer will be offered by a Protest
ant minister and the benediction will
be pronounced by a representative of
the Catholic Church. The speakers will
include a representative of President
Roosevelt, yet to be named, but prob
ably Secretary Taft, the Governor.
Mayor, a representative of the United
States Senate and of the lower house.
Exposition President H. "W. Gcrode and
other men of prominence who have not
yet been decided upon.
Roosevelt Starts the Fair.
Immediately upon the conclusion of
this part of the programme word will
be flashed to President Roosevelt that
the Lewis and Clark Exposition is in
readiness. President Roosevelt will
touch a button in the White House
which on the instant will set In motion
the machinery of the Exposition across
The vital electrical current from
Washington will first touch the towers
of the big Government structure on
the Government Peninsula In Guild's
Lake. It will start the chimes in the
tower tolling off the impressive strains
of "America." For a full moment this
stirring air will be the one sound,
while the thousands stand with bared
heads. Then will come the heavy hum
of machinery In the Machinery Hall,
simultaneous with the striking up of
the "Lewis and Clark March" by the
F. N. Innes Band. A feature of this
music will be the masked guns on the
terraces above the grandstand, which
will be discharged by electricity In
rytbm with the music
After that it will require a level
headed person to keep track of the
demonstration. Heavy artillery sa
lutes will roar out above the rattle of
small arms. A dozen bands will add
their music to the noise In a vain en
deavor to be heard, a chorus of several
hundred school children will sing from
the terraces, and the cheers of thous
ands of lusty voices will mingle tvlth
Salutes From Warships.
Nor will all the noise be confined to
the Exposition grounds. Warships and
other craft In the harbor will boom
forth the President's salute, whistles
will blow as they have never blown
before, and the gladsome celebration
will be taken up by what is left of the
population of rural districts and outly
' For fully an hour this demonstration
will continue and then attention will
divert to the exhibit palaces, the seen
ery. the Trail and the thousand and one
attractions of the great Fair.
In the evening the scene will be an,
Inspiring one. The big white palaces
will stand out in myriads of incandes
cent lights. Every tower and every
beam of every exhibit building will be
outlined in fire. On the water front an
elaborate display of fireworks will be
made; lighted gondolas and launches
will glide here and there on the water,
and the hilarity on The Trail will bo
In full swing. These things, with the
strains of muslo mingled through all
sounds, will produce an enchanting ef
fect. "As to the attendance on the opening
day. It is believed there will be .more
people than at any other time during
the Fair. Every Western state and
many of those of the East have ar
ranged to send special representatives.
Excursions without number have been
planned from points throughout the
Western country. One big excursion,
bearing 100 people or more, has already
been made up at Indianapolis, to reach
Portland for the opening day. The
population of the city and surrounding
country will turn out generally.
In order to prevent any acts of an
unlawful nature4he grounds will he

military patrol and secret service .men
there will be a strong cordon of unl-
gersttd policemen detailed by the cltyj
for service on the grounds, and a force j
of specials will be sworn In. It is in
tended not only to have the greatest
demonstration, but to estarjusn a
record by haing the day pass off with
out mishap or unpleasant incident or

FRANCE IS ALERT
Sees Oriental Trade Through
the '05 Fair.
NOW ASKS FOR MORE SPACE
Exhibits Department Receives Letter
From French Commissioner. Ask
ing That France Be Awarded
6800 Square Feet.
The demand for exhibit space at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition has spread
from the United States. Yesterday an
insistent letter was received by Direct
or of Exhibits H. E. Doscb, asking for
more space In the Foreign building fqr
the French displays. France already
has an allotment of 5350 square feet
and the request Is for 1450 -additional,
which, if allowed, will bring the total
allowance for France up to 6800 square
The communication from M. Victor
Larucele makes bare the motives that
have occasioned tne request. It states
that French exhibitors are impressed
with the Oriental phase of the Exposl
tlon and believe new and extensive
trade relations are to be evolved.
Which indicates that France intends
to be on the ground floor in the devel
opment of the relations with tne "Ori
ent. M. Larucele also announces In his
communication that, as French Expo
sltion Commissioner, he has caused to
be circulated among leading French
traders and manufacturers, communl
cations setting out the import of the
Portland Fair together .with a descrip
tion of the Oregon country and Its re

is soon to be shipped for Portland. It
consists mostly of ellks, toys and ma
chinery. It Is thought probable that the ad
ditional allotment of space will be
granted If possible to make space in
the Foreign building. The exhibits de
partment ratner expects similar re
quests for an increased allowance from
Germany, Great Britain and Italy. Each
of the. powers had the same space as
did France and now that France has
asked for more It Is thought the others
will do likewise.
WILL ADVERTISE THE FAIR.
Northern Pacifio Expects to Bring
. Many Visitors Here.
A. B. Smith, assistant general passen
ger agent of the Northern Pacific, who
has been 'visiting In Portland for a cou
ple of days, will leave this evening for
his home In St. Paul.
Mr. Smith, while In Portland, has been
looking into the things promised by the
Lewis and Clark Fair, In order that he
may be the better able to advertise it
in the East when he returns to his head
From the first of April until the latter
part of July the Northern Pacific will
conduct an extensive advertising cam
paign throughout the states east of the
Missouri River, booming the Exposition
and the Northwest in general.
It is announced by Mr. Smith that the
company is now building two entire trains
to be put on during the coming Spring
or Summer on the run between Seattle
and Portland to take care of the local
OF THE GREAT EXPLORERS,
traffic, that will spring up on account of
the Fair. The Burlington express is also
being rebuilt by the company and will
soon furnish as good accommodations as
any train run by the Northern Pacific
the North Coast Limited not excepted.
The train will not run an observation
car, but o&tside of this feature there will
be no appreciable difference between the
Burlington and the limited. In many
other ways the Northern road is prepar
ing for the heavy traffic expected for the
coming season. -
"The people of the East are beginning
to know of Oregon and to want to visit
the Coast, said Mr. Smith yesterday.
"They are learning of the advantages to
be found here and are desirous of coming
here to live. The colonist rates, the low
excursion rates to the Fair, the home
seekers' round-trip rates, all are bringing
people to Portland or will bring them
here, and many of those who come will
stay. It Is to the Interest of the North
ern .Pacific to settle the country of the
Northwest now vacant and every effort Is
being made by the road to advertise not
Portland alone, but the entire state and
the district of the Northwest. From this
work and what Is being done by other par
ties, great results will come.
Mr. Smith "will leave for Seattle thls
cveninr and will then return to his St."
Paul home, after a short stay In Wash
