El llf HIGH RATES
AFRAID OF GERM
SCENE AT DEDICATION OF FRATERNAL TEMPLE AT LEWIS AND CLARK EXPOSITION GROUNDS
Exposition Officials Denounce
WILL INJURE THE COUNTRY
Visitors Must Be Treated With Cour
tesy and Xot Robbed if Oregon
and Portland Are to Bene
fit by Centennial.
If the full measure of benefit does not
accrue to Portland and to Oregon through
the Lewis and Clark Exposition, it will
be the fault of the people of Portland,
declare officials of the Exposition. The
one danger that besets the full success of
the Exposition is that of overcharging
visitors for accommodations. Of course,
most of the hotelkeepers have not raised
their rates to any extent, and in dozens of
private boarding and lodging-houses the
usual rates prevail. But at every Expo
sition exorbitant prices have been de
manded by those who controlled accom
modations, and" the result was that thou
sands of" people left after only a day or
two In attendance at the Fair.
It is only fair to presume, Exposition
officials eay, that there are numbers of
people in Portland who are figuring on
making every cent possible this Summer.
This class of people it'is hoped to discour
age in their piratical practices before they
get in .their deadly work of turning away
visitors. Just now plans are being con
sidered to do away with the overcharging
practice, and before the end of the week
it is expected that some forceful method
will be bit Upon of enforcing moderate
prices. All accommodations inside of the
exposition grounds are restricted by spe
cial contract, and high charges cannot be
made there. Owners of hundreds of resi
dences are on record as willing to provide
for visitors at a very moderate rate.
Many others have declined to make any
set rate, and these, it is believed, intend
to charge as much .as it is possible for
them to get, unless measures arc taken to
convince them that their attitude is un
profitable, both to themselves and to the
Danger In Overcharging.
Henry E. Reed, secretary of the Expo
sition, was among the first to awaken to
the danger of overcharging. He can see
in that practice an evil which will serious
ly affect the attendance at the Exposition
and cheat the plans for the settlement of
the Oregon country. Discussing the mat
ter yesterday, Mr. Reed said:
"The Exposition is now in the hands of
the people of Portland. If there is any
overcharging in the matter of rates for
accommodations, travel to Portland will
not come up to expectations, and the at
tendance at the Exposition will be se
riously affected. All the work of prepara
tion for the Exposition could be undone
by overcharging on the part of those who
control accommodations. In the long run,
prices and hates will find their natural
level,. and no one should think of jeopard
izing the interests of the Exposition for
the sake of a few extra dollars of profit
at the outset."
Xot Public Spirited.
Jefferson Myers, president of the State
Exposition Commission, is strong in his
denunciation of those who plan to ovcr
iharge visitors. He declares such people
are not public-spirited, not good citizens
and not good financiers. By moderate
charges during the Fair a desirable class
of people will locate in the city and coun
try, and thus the benefits to all will be
gradual and lasting.
"If the public." said Mr. Myers, "Is to
obtain from the great amount of adver
tising that is being done by the state the
result that it should, certainly it is an
important thing that when a visitor and
prospective settler comes into a commu
nity with his family he should not be sub-
Jected to an unreasonable expense for a
home while investigating the resources of
the country and the possibilities as to a
future home. While the profit to the own
er of the property rented may for the
time be very large, the loss sustained it
the visitor Is discouraged from . locating
will more than overbalance this extra
profit. I believe every effort should be
made to Interest an intending settler, and
that we should grant to him every con
sideration when he arrives within the bor
ders of our state that he may not become
disgusted and perhaps remove at an early
date to some other state."

speakers.- the Congressional. Senate ana

and the officials of the Exposition".
With the above exception the parade

communicate with him at once, giving the
strength of the organization and the
name of the commanding officer.
TO GIVE FREE EXHIBITION
Interesting. Outside Attractions to Be
Seen at the Exposition.
Some people have the impression that
there is practically nothing of Interest
to be seen at expositions without addi
tional expense besides the admission fee
charged at the gates. This will not be
the case at the Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion, as there will be, outside attractions
during the Fair.
They willbe given on the water space
between the bandstand and chutes on the
Trail, and will be free to all. There will
be a free attraction every day. The Ex

the automobile loop-the-gap act, called
the "Dip of Death," and various other

The Fraternal Temple was dedicated at
the Fair grounds yesterday. Modestly and
quietly a handful of the most ardent
supporters of the project gathered down
by the lake front and went through a
short ceremony. Meanwhile the builders
were already busy laying the sllle for the
structure and the noise of hammers al
most drowned the- voices of speakers, but
these did not care, for they are trying to
put through a building in seven days and
a few hours, and speeches do not build

tined to be a place of rest and hospitality,
will be conducted Jointly by all the fra

which are interested, and there are, few
which are not. The fostering and main

For a long time, practically all Winter,
many large meetings were held and much
was said about the Fraternal Temple,
but it was in danger of amounting to
nothing no longer ago than two weeks

cided that something must be done, par
ticularly on account of the stockholders
so a file wassecured and the butldlny

Mrs. L. a. Cornell, secretary of the Fra
ternal Building Association, broke ground
at the ceremonies yesterday and delivered
an address telling of the purposes of tbft
building and the noble ideas which it
embodied. J. L. Mitchell, president of the
Fraternal Building Association, made the
leading address of the ceremonies. He
said in part:
