Determined Saloons Shall-Not
Menace Exposition,
'J" t
111 baUU kill I II IIUUII
At the fortnightly meeting- of the
City Board of Education last night, It
was decided to close the public schools
on June 14. There will also be a holiday-
on June 1. to permit the pupils to
attend the opening of the Lewis and
Clark Exposition. .
June 21 had been originally tiealg
nated as the date for closing the city
schools, but all the teachers were In
favor of early closing, and as the Su
perintendent put In ngood word In
their behalf by saying that they had
worked very hard this year, the board
took a philanthropic view of the situa
tion. IV was arranged to give the teach
ers -and the graduating class of the
High School an opportunity for fixing
the date of the graduating exercises to
suit their own convenience.
The special meeting of principals will
be held on Saturday, evening, June 3,
at 7:30.
A committee was appointed to draft
resolutions of condolence to Professor
Hoover over the death of his wife.
Extra Shift of Workmen As
signed to Booths in Man-
ufactures Building.
Exposition. Management Confident
There Will Be No Hitch Will
Employ Enormous Force
if Necessary.
frith barely a week in which to
complete the finishing details of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, it has
been found necessary to start a night
force to work. In this manner the time
allowed for finishing is practically
doubled. Last night the firsi. extra
shift went to work in the Manufac
tures, Liberal Arts and Varied Indus
tries buildings, and the end of the
week will see large forces working day
nnd night If necessary, a third shift
will be put to work, and next Sunday
will be utilized.
That there will be no detail incom
plete the Exposition management is
determined upon, and whatever meas
ures necessary will be taken without
delay. President Goodc and his as
sistants are as confident as ever that
there will be no hitch. They aver that
when they throw the gates open to the
world a week ironr next Thursday it
will be with the knowledge that no
where is there anything unfinished.
The greater bulk of .he work un
done at this time Is In the exhibit
buildings. Many booths of domestic
exhibitors need much work to com
plete them and then considerable time
will be required to install their ex
hibits. In a majority of booths the
work of installation is actually under
way, and with these there is no ques
tion but that they will be ready.
Flowers Begin to Bloom.
Considerable grading, too, remains
to be done. Owing to the large num
ber of heavily-laden teams that -pass
there each day. It has been Xouhd im
practicable to grade Lewis and Clark
boulevard, and after the heavy rains
of yesterday that main thoroughfare
was impassable to pedestrians. The
work of the landscape gardeners is al
ready done except to keep up the
grounds. That the planting of rose
bushes aqd plants has been well-timed
is attested by the thousands of blooms
that have made their appearance "dur
ing the past week.
Very Utile work remains to be done
on the various state buildings. With
one or two exceptions, the building
work is already done and nothing but
the furnishings are lacking. Placing
furnishings, however, is the worjc of
hut ene or two days. For example,
the furnishing of the Oregon building
was commenced yesterday morning,
and very little remained undone at 6
o'elocjk fact evening.
On the Trail the finishing work is
being done on neatly e.yery structure,
ajta at least three are finished and open
te the public at this time. The Gov
ernment building, too, seeds only a
few more days work before it will be
Fairbanks Will Be in Attendance on
the Opening Day.
Then will be Koldlcrs at the Fair and
on .the opening day Vice-President Fair
banks, as the personal representative of
President Roosevelt, wfll be shown all
the honors usual to accord the Chief Ex
ecutive of the Nation on public occasions.
It has been arranged that two troops
of the Fourth Cavalry from Walla Walla,
under the command of Colonel Steever,
and the Fourteenth Infantry, from Van
couver, under command of Colonel Irons,
together with the Fourteenth Infantry
band and the detachment now at the Ex
position grounds of Companies 1 and K
of the Tenth Infantry under command
of Captain Bowon. will be brought to
Portland on June 1 as a guard of honor
for Vice-President Fairbanks.
The details- have not been fully settled,
but arrangements have been made at the
Fair grounds for a camping place for the
cavalry, stable arrangements being made
yesterday for the quartering of 175 hftrses.
The troop will be camped, according to
the present plan, close to the two com-.
n"anles now on the island. It is expected
that the Walla Walla troops will be sent
from the fort in time to reach Portland
a couple of days before the opening, thus
giving -them ample time to go Into camp
and get their horses straightened out
after the long journey by train. It' rs
not now known how long the cavalry will
remain in Portland, but It is thought that
thp camp will be kept here for some time.
The Vancouver Infantry .will. In all
probability, be brought to the city on the
day of the opening and returned in the
evening after the exercises have been
Colonel Steever. of the cavalry, will act
as the marshal of the day during the
programme incident to the opening of the-Exposition.

University Day at the Fair.
May 2. (Special.) President P. L. Camp
bell made the announcement today that
all preparations had beenx perfected for
University day at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition June 16. The Portland Univer
sity Club, all member? of the Alumni As
sociation, and the Oregon student body
will co-operate in the programme.
The principal feature of the University
progmmme-will be the unveiling of a bust
of Thomas Jefferson as an appreciation
of hi? efforts In fixing the standards of
college attainment In America v No one
has yet been -enraged to deliver the ad
dress. Other minor feature of the day
have been, arranged.
Commercial Club Will Close for
Twenty-Four Hours.
II Is Planned to Give All Employes
the- Opportunity to Visit the
Exposition -on the
First Day.
la order that all employes may visit the
Lewis and Clark Exposition on the open
ing day, the Commercial Club will close
its doors for 21 hours.'and no one will be
allowed In the clubrooms -with the excep
tion of a watchman. This Is an action
that has never been taken before by such
an organization; It was determined upon
yesterday afternoon at a meeting of the
board of governors, through which 700
business and professional men speak.
To carry out the idea of the board of
governors will be to close for a whole day
an establishment that runs regularly day
and night Upon June 1 there will be no
meals or luncheons served, the parlors
will be closed to members and guests, the
billiard-rooms and bowling alleys will be
closed, the bar will be closed. And it will
be, perhaps, the ony closed bar in Port
land upon that day. The Commercial Club
employs many persons, and the board of
governors Insists that these employes
spend the day as a holiday in every sense
of tho word and visit the Exposition
either during the afternoon or the eve
ning. The prime reason for the action of the
board of governors Is to sot a good exam
ple for those business and professional
men who have hesitated to close and make
the opening day of the Exposition a holi
day. The movement is gaining favor and
numbers of business men have signified
their Intention of closing all day and in
sisting that employes visit the Fair. The
matter of decoration is receiving a great
deal of attention, and many novel effects
in decoration are promised by merchants.
Almost every residence along the streets
leading to the Exposition grounds will be
decorated with flags and banners and
flowers. There has been a great sale of
tho official Lewis and Clark flag, and the
fields and hills have been ravaged for
Oregon grape. Citizens are taking a pride
in the Fair and are determined to show
the visitors on the opening day that there
is a certain way of doing things In Port
land that is very commendable.
If plans are carried out as expected.
June 1 will be a gala day in the history'
of Portland. Crowds of merrymakers will
throng the streets. There will be noth
ing else to do, for all stores will be closed
and nothing remain open but ice creara
parlors and restaurants. It is expected
that the merriment will begin early in the
morning that June 1 will be a second
Fourth of July on a larger scale. The
crowds will gradually grow larger toward
noon and make their way toward the Ex
position grounds,, and then at noon Presi
dent Roosevelt will touch a button in
Washington that will start the machinery
and throw the gates of the Fair open to
the world. With the royal salute of 100
guns that will mark the opening will be
gin J2 hours of joyous acclaim, and the
thousands who make their way about the,
grounds and view the exhibits will. In
lucid moments, stop to reflect on the cause
of it all and honor the Tf nsory of the
two Captains that risked everything to
reach the Oregon ceuntry an bring It
into the fold of the United States. This
Is the opening day as it Is desired to be,
and the preparations now being made in
dicate that such the opening day will be.
Cnpftaf cvs of Bo'iso Will Give
Them the Opportunity.
A. L. Mitchell, superintendent of the
Lewis and Clark Centennial tour for the
Evening Capital News, of Boise. Idaho,
Is here In the Interest of his paper, and
last night outlined the details of the
proposed trip. The News Is holding a
voting contest with the Idea of sending
eight of the most popular young women
of that section of the country to Portland
on a 15-daya outing during the Fair," free
of all expense. In view of the fact that
the Couer d'Alene and Lewiston districts
are considered in the territory of the
Spokane newspapers. Ontario and Hunt
ington. Or., have been Included In their
place, candidates from that section being
The contest was commenced January
8. and will close June 25, the party reach
ing Portland on the morning of July 8,
which will give the young ladle ample
time In which to make preparations for
the Journey. Mitchell Is now arranging
with the Exposition managers for the
proper reception of his charges on arrival,
and this will probably take the shape ot
a public demonstration of some sort.
The Idea of getting up these voting con
tests Is not new with Mitchell. He was
formerly In the employ of United States
Senator Lee Mantle, proprietor of the
Butte. Mont., Evening Inter-Mountain,
and in such capacity arranged a free trip
upon a voting proposition, the successful
candidate having the option of visiting
the Paris Exposition or taking a trip to
Cape Nome. Miss McAndrews. superin
tendent of the Deer Lodge High School,
won, and chose Nome as her objecttve
point, where she is now conducting a
flourishing real estate business. The fol
lowing year seven of the most popular
young ladles were sentto the Yellowstone
Park, and later on seven others were
given a free trip to the Buffalo Exposi
tion. He thinks it is a highly commenda
ble way of increasing the circulation of
a newspaper, besides affording deserving
young women a chance to see the world.

Sorenson, Zimmerman, Carter, An
derson and Prag: Also' Seek to
Be Elected to the City
Councll'in Jnnc.
There was the usual llth-hour rush at
the City Auditor's office yesterday after
noon to file petitions of nomination by
vralous candidates.
George Sorenson, indicted by the late
Federal grand jury In connection with
land frauds, filed a petition as Councilman
from the Third Ward. There wore 9
signatures to the document, mostly resi
dents of the North End. He was accom
panied to the Auditor's office "by Charles
F. Lord, the attorney, who is likewise
under Indictment by the Federal grand
Jury for alleged attempt to defame the
character of "District Attorney Heney.
Sorenson gives his address as 22V&
Washington street, and his petition seta
forth that he is an "independent, .non
partisan" candidate. .
Shortly before 5 o'clock the petition of
I Zimmerman wa filed as a candidate
for Councllman-at-large'. He Is also
running as an independent. Zimmerman
is at present a member of the Council
from the Sixth Ward.
Petitions of nomination were filed also

nue, as Councilman from the Tenth
Ward: S. P. Anderson, 565 Gantenbeln

As Soon an All the Minutiae Have
Been Looked Into They
3Iay Purchase.
C. A. Pearson, the auditing expert ot
the party of Eastern bankers that is now
in the city with a view to buying the
Portland Consolidated Street Railway
Company, was the most lucky man ot the
aggregation yesterday, for he spent . the
day In the office of the company at the
Mohawk building going over the books,
while his associates traveled over the
lines of the company iri the rain.
That the men have come to the city
with an Intention to do business is shown
by the vim with which they began opera
tions. Early In the morning they began
the Inspection of the system under the
guidance of F. I. Fuller, the general man
ager: C. F. Swlgert. the vice-president,
and A. L. Mills, the president of the com
pany. A special car took the party over
the southern part of the system during
the forenoon, while In the afternoon a
trip was taken over the East Side lines
and the portion ot the track that had not
been covered in the morning.
The men are in Portland to remain a
week, and, if necessary, longer. During
that time Mr. Pearson will make an In
vestigation of the books of the company,
while the rest of the party will examine
very thoroughly the different depart
ments. Including the shops, the tracks
and the rolling stock. The title to the
property will be looked Into, the fran
chises will be gone over and every detail
will be made the subject of Inquiry. Then.
It everything proves as represented, and
there is no doubt but that it will be so,
tho representatives of the Eastern capi
talists, will close the deal for the pur
chase of the company's property and
rights here.
None of the gentlemen would make a
statement as to his Impressions gleaned
from the first day's work other than to
say that he thought Portland a very fine
city and that the street-car properties
were evidently In first-class condition and
"Yes, we are looking at the property
with a view to purchase." said one mem
ber of the company yesterday afternoon.
"But we do not want to discuss the ques
tion at this time. It is like a horse trade,
you know, we want to see all the point's
of the animal before we close the deal."
Other than that he would not 'talk,
though It Is practically certain that the
sale will bo consummated within a week.
It will take several days to make an ex
amination of all the documents and rec
ords and to Inspect the property, but once
that Is done It is thought that little time
will elapse before the deal Is closed.
Addresses Arc Delivered "by Presl
dent Mrs. Lillian 3tT. X. Stevens,
Vice-President Miss Ansa
Gordon and-Others.
An elaborate printed, programme baa
been prepared for the business sessions
of the National conference of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union
yesterday, but Jn the face of. the'iagita

censes granted to saloonkeepers who
are plying their trade near the gates,
of the Lewis and Clark Exposition, the:
W. C. T. U. women altered, their pro
gramma arrangements and gave' notice
that they, were to be factors In the
anti-saloon fight on that occasion- .
The White Bibboners present seemed
to have made themselves familiar with
the provisions of the city charter by
which machinery may be set la motion
calling on the Council to submit the
matter at issue to the electors at the
next city election,, and after discussion
a resolution was adopted asking the
City Council to take such action. Many
members expressed themselves willing
to circulate petitions necessary to
bring about the lnvocition of the initl
atl ire.
Mrs. Lucia F. A- Additon, state presi
dent of the W. C. T. U., was "one
of the principal speakers, and she said
in part:
"Lately X have traveled in different
portions of Oregon, and everywhere
have I found a wish expressed that
these liquor saloona at the gates of our
Exposition should be abolished. We
expect that the decent people ot Ore
gon will be a unit in demanding- that
these places shall not be suffered to
Mrs. Stevens, president of the Na
tional W. C. T. U., expressed astonish
ment that saloons were ever allowed
to be placed near the Exposition
grounds. "It Is really the first In
staice that I know of where the pro
visions of a law and public sentiment
have been so overridden In placing,
saloons so near a schoolhouse," -she
went on. "I am glad that there ,1 ax
awakening to the fact that the revenue
from these saloons will not pay the
salaries of, the extra policemen, and for
other expenses, all made necessary by
the evil complained of."
"Children attending the Chapman
School are daily Insulted by men com
ing out of those saloons." complained
Mrs. Edith Whitesldes, county presi
dent of the W. C T. U. "It seems
dreadful that 6ur beautiful city should
be blotted by liquor saloons at the en
trance to our Exposition. Women in
all reforms have been foremost; and in
this reform although we are only a,
small body of women we shall keep
pounding away until the con'dtiona
complained of are changed."
Miss Anna A. Gordon, vlce-prestdent-at-large
of the National "W. C T. U..
told ot the work of the Loyal Temper
ance Legion, and also roused interest
by telling reminiscences ot Miss Wll

tary. Addresses on helpful topics were
delivered by Mrs. M. M. Sleets, Mrs.
Jane Donaldson, Mrs. Lucia P.. A. Ad
diton. the latter apeaking on "The W.

3Iayor Williams Hears Delegation
Which Opposes It.
The recently-adopted meat-inspection
ordinance Is- being amailed In many di
rections, and the Mayor ix undecided
whether to veto it or not. It was passed
by an almost unanimous vote of the City
Council, Flegel being the only member
wno aid not sec some gooa ieaiures in
the measure, but since then people have
had time to consider its different provi
sions, with the result that about all the
commission dealers of the city and dairy
men adjacent to Portland are bringing
every Influence to bear to cause the
Mayor to withhold his signature.
In that event K is argued that the
Council might possibly pass the ordinance
over the Mayors veto, and. In fact, all
sorts of complications are likely to ensue.
The Mayor has until next Saturday to
make up his mind on the subject
