Electricians Busy Working Out Plans
of Beautiful Electrical Effects.
An increased force of skilled electricians
attacked the Exposition grounds j'ester-'
Jay for the purpose of carrying out wlth

Slsplays, which will bo a feature of the
Portland Fair. Dozens more of electrical
:rees are to be fitted up. thousands of In--andescont
lights placed on the buildings
and in booths, and last but not least, the
bottom of Guild's Lake is to be Illum

The submarine lighting work was begun
jesterday, under the direction of J. R.
Thompson, the Exposition's electrical en
gineer, and last evening several of these
'ights were in place. As this work Is
somewhat in the nature of an experiment,
preliminary tests were made at once. The
ights proved to be an entire success. Un
der four feet of water the specially con
structed bulbs, enclosed In water-tight
compartments, lighted up the lake bot
tom for several feet about and will show
up a greater radius when the water is
.Ieared by chemical process, later on.
When the electrical work Is finished the
Fair will stand out In a blaze of light
after dark. Lights will outline all the
buildings, palaces, fountains, and other
vantage points and the thousands of
lights on the Trail and peninsula will be
doubled by reflection In Guild's Lake.
So rapidly has the work progressed that
a test will be made Thursday evening of

outline lights of the Forestry building and

Electric Company, near the Exposition
grounds. This plant Is nearly ready for

CALIFORNIA WILL BE ON TIME
Building Nearly Done and Exhibits
Ready to Ship.
"California was never behind time at
an exposition California will not be be-.
hind time at this one."
This is the assurance given by Commis
sioner Frank Wiggins, of the California
State Gommission, who spent yesterday at
the Exposition grounds in company with
J. A. Fllcher, his brother commissioner,
They came up to see how the California
building was getting along and to look
over the field for the third time since the
California appropriation was made. For

Both commissioners were satisfied with
the progress of work on the building, for
In fact, it needs only the finishing touches
to make It ready for use. Learning this
they announced that within two weeks a
force of thirty men and a long train of
exhibits would depart from California for
the Fair and that the men would set
about placing an exhibit that everyone
that comes to the Fair will pause to ad
mire. The decorations alone will occupy
four cars. These decorations Include
potted plants, palms, orange and lemon
trees and myriads of sub-tropical plants.

and It then became the plan of the
immigration agent to secure the co
operation of the business and commer
cial bodies and make the grant a mat
ter of popular subscription. In the
meantime, however, the argument had
been made to the manufacturers of the
state that Oregon bought a great deal
of its farm implements and other
manufactured products from the state
and that for that reason a mark of
appreciation should be given for what
favors have been shown from here. The
bill was introduce! and referred to the
committee on manufactures in the
House, and was referred back favor
ably and passed. Although there is a
strong opposition in the Senate It Is
hoped that the bill will pass.
Japanese Commissioner Arrives.
Tasujro Yamaji, a member of the Jap
anese Imperial Exposition Commission, is
in the city to look after the Japanese In
stallation. He informed Col. Dosch yes
terday, that the Japanese exhibit had
been shipped and should bo well along on
the voyage to Portland by this time. He
also stated that Japan was not satisfied
with the showing made at St. Louis and
Intended to do better at Portland. Com
missioner Yamaji will remain here until
the arrival of other members of the Jap

ments will be completed for placing the

MARTIN THE IViAN
Will Try to Win Him to Favor

At a. meeting of the Municipal Civil
Service Commission held yesterday
the following examinations were or
dered: For mechanical engineers, April
lb : for firemen, April 22, and for pa
trolmen, April 29.
Local Railway Men and Officers of
Chamber of Commerce Will Ar
gue With Him in Favor of
D. B. .Martin, traffic manager of the
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, reached the
city last night from San Francisco with
his private car and a party of friends
and will spend the day visiting the Ex
position grounds and in viewing tne va
rious sights of the city.
The Eastern railroad magnate has cho
sen an unfortunate time to visit the city
unless he is of unbiased mind and will
ing to be convinced of the needs of Port
land for lower Eastern rates and the Jus
tice of the demands for recognition from
the trunk lines east of Chicago.
Since it was announced that Mr. Martin
would visit the city the men of Portland
Interested in the lower rates for the fair,
and for the conventions which are to
come to the city during the Summer,
have been busy preparing to meet with
him in order that the conditions here
might be explained to him and the scope
and extent of the fair shown In the
strongest light possible. A. D. Charlton,
assistant general passenger agent of the
Northern Pacific, has been placed in
charge of the provisions for the meeting,
which It Is hoped will be arranged. If
It Is possible, Mr. Charlton will escort
Mr. 3Iartin and his party to the Exposi
tion grounds today, show him what has
neen done already and what will be done
before the opening of the fair and place
before - him the reasons why Oregon
thinks the trunk lines have been dis
criminating unjustly against the city and
state by making lower rates to the Cali
fornia conventions than to the North
Coast gatherings scheduled for Portland.
Accompanying Mr. Charlton will be
President H. W. Goode of the Exposi
tion. President W. D. Wheelwright of the
Chamber of Commerce, and L. A. Lewis,
the chairman of the transportation com
mittee of that body. If it can be ar
ranged, Messrs. Levey. Hannaford and
Woodworth. the members of the. Northern
Pacific party now in the city to attend
the conferences between the traffic men
and the members of the Jobbers' Asso
ciation, will also make part of the com
pany of escort for Mr. Martin and his
The Western roads have always been
willing to make low rates for any con
ventions held in the East and it is
thought that the hefp of the representa
tives now in the city will be of great
assistance In convincing Mr. Martin that
the desires of Portland are just and in
The Northern Pacific has always taken
a great Interest in any rates to be made
into the Northwest for any purpose. The
men who will be asked to meet with Mr.
Martin are those who have had great
experience with traffic conditions here
and will be able to show the Eastern
man just what to expect. It will bo
arguod that inasmuch as the Western
roads have always favored the Eastern
cities and the Eastern roads by -making
the lowest possible rates into the East
ern territory for conventions and fairs,
that It is only right that the trunk lines
should reciprocate by making low rates
to the Northwest coast during the Sum
mer to come.
The main trouble is said to be that
the Eastern roads do not want to make
low rates to the fair because It will ne
cessitate the observance of so many sell
ing dates and will thus add to the trou
ble at the local ticket offices throughout
the East without adding materially to the
income of the roads.
During Mr. Martin's visit to the city he
will be shown all of the plans for the fair
and what Is expected In the way of at
tendance. It Is hoped that it will be possi
ble to convert him to the Ideas of the
Portland people and send him as a mis
sionary Into the field of the Eastern Pas
senger Association, where by his efforts
he can win them to grant concessions, not
only for the conventions secured for
Portland during the Summer, but for the
Exposition as well.
Barbers Examined for Licenses.
Sixty applicants for barbers' licenses
appeared before the Board of Barber
Examiners yesterday and the board
wiil be busy with, them for a day or
two. The examiners are putting- the
applicants through their paces as rap
Idly as possible, but there are more
points to a good barber than would
appear on the surface, and the appli
cant must be proficient In all or he Is
told to come back at the next try-out
period. The board Is changed around a
bit. with a new member on it. It now
consists of H. G. Meyer, president; J.
C. Weiss, secretary, and R. R. Wallace,
treasurer. Wallace Is the new member
recently appointed by the Governor.

the pu-aser. It chanced that the site of the New York building Is on a plot of land owned by Mr. Wessinser. The plans of

hands the day the Exposition end?. The consideration Is said to be $3500.

the building would be suitable for that purpose. However,. Mr. Wcsainger says It may be used as a dwelling or adapted to other

Information Bureau Which Will Be
of Immeasureable Value to the
State, and to Visitors Will
Be Shortly Inaugurated.
The Portland Chamber of Commerce
took another step In advancement yester
day afternoon when Edmond C. Glltner
assumed his duties as secretary of that
organization. It will be several days be
fore Mr. Giltner is able to assume the
full control of his office, owing to his con
nection with the Lewis and Clark State
Commission, as secretary, but as soon aa
arrangements can be made to relieve him
of bis duties at the Fair grounds he will
take full charge of his new position.
Since the amendment of the constitution
and by-laws of the Chamber was con
templated, following the Inauguration of
President Wheelwright, in fact, the scope
of the Chamber has been so broadened
that it has been hard for the force in
