"A cloudy condition prevails through
out the entire North Pacific States," said
District Forecaster Beals yesterday, "and
we may .expect showers on Thursday.
However, these showers will be of but
short duration, as there Is no general
storm disturbance. There is a bare possi
bility of no rain at all, but this Is not
probable. We may expect plenty of nice
weather between showers."
On Washington and Morrison Streets
EvcryN Effort Will Be Made to
Care for the Crowds.
Last night all of the- 250 cars of the
Portland Consolidated Hallway Com
pany were taken out of the bams and
put through their Exposition paces.
For a time during the evening the
schedule tQ be maintained during tne
greater part of today was followed and
it was found that there was no trouble
in living up to the calculations of Man
ager Fuller and his associates who
have been planning the service.
This morning, as the time for the
opening ifraws near, the whole service
of the company will be put injo com
mission ..nd during the rush part of
the day a one-minute schedule will be
run on both Morrison and Washington
streets. The Third-street schedule will
not be quite that fast, but will be
greatly Increased over the old service,
and it is hoped that with all the dif
ferent routes running past the gates
of the Exposition a. schedule of 30 sec
onds may be maintained for the great
er part of the day.
This morning Morrison will be a
trunk line street and will run cars
from Front street straight out to the
Fair grounds. This vjll enable all those
coming from the East Side to get
transfers at the foot of .Morrison street
from cither the Morrison or the Madison-street
bridges, thus avoiding the
crowding, at the Third-street transfer
According to the new arrangements
the cars at the foot of Washington
street are being- swung around the
loop on Second and Alder. o that the
congestion at -the foot., of the street
will be done away with and the fast
schedule can be run.
It is the expectation of tho com
pany that there will be no difficulty

Speaker of House of Represen

Says He Doesn't .Know 3Iuch About
Oregon Except What He Reads,
nnd Hasn't the Time to
Read Much.
It may bo that Joseph G. Cannon,
Speaker of the House of Representatives1,
has been interviewed many times In his
life, full of public duty, but it is a safe
bet to make that more times he has inter
viewed the Interviewer. It is a way he
ha and yesterday he was In his happiest
mood. Speaker Cannon, or "Uncle Joe"
to those who arc most fortunately his
friend? and Intimates. Is a Joshua of the
present time, an improvement over the
old one of Holy Writ In that he seems
to have not only halted the .sun of time
In Its course, but to have forced it to
retrace Its path toward the years of
youth. The hand of time has no touch
for him unless It be to brush away the
wrinkles of care. His hair Is white, his
beard of like color, but If you. were to
mention It to Mr. Cannon he perhaps
would hold It to be the kindness of Provi
dence that had bleached it to lend be
nevolence to his face and dignity to his
Tho Speaker is an optimist and wears a
i-smlle as habitually as he does his- coat
He may have his troubles and his ' wor
ries, but they are due In the course of
time, and they pass. "Follow the advice
of the good book." he says, "and 'let not
the sun go down upon thy wrath-' It Is
a lot easier to smile than it Is to frown,
to sing than to swear, and It is a great
deal better for the others-fellow."
Those who knew Mr. Cannon a year ago
and see him now after a lapse of time
say he is younger than when they last
met him. This may be so, but whether it
is or not. he is young enough and old
enough to make him the companion and
the friend of alL
Yesterday morning Mr. Cannon, and his
ever-accompanying cigar, walked up and
down the corridors of the Portland, and
even in this far Western country met
thoso whom "he knew. Ho stopped them
all. or they stopped him. and spoke for a
minute here and two there of days past
and things to come. At last, he met a
man who knew a--newspaper man and in
troduced him.
"I am very glad to see you." was the
greeting of the man who rules the Na
tional House, extending the courtesy
possessed by those gentlemen of the old
school and by them alone. "I, am glad to
see you, but I don't know anything that
you want to talk to me about."
It was Intimated that the chief desire
was that Mr. Cannon do the talking.
"I came out here to learn, not to teach.
I want to know something of Oregon- T
don't know much about the state except
what I read, and I don't have time to
read." The Speaker smiled a sorrowful
"A story has preceded you saying that
you were to be a candidate for the Presi
dential nomination at the next conven
tion." was suggested.
An injured look darkened the eyes of
the statesman from Illinois.
"Why." he said. "Teddy hasn't hardlv
.been Inaugurated yet." Mr. Cannon
knows how to be ambiguous when he will.
"No, my son," he continued, "I don't
know a thing about anything. I am just
out here to see the Fair and to help
open it; to see the country and to get ac
quainted with the people of the state.
That Is all, but I don't want to talk, I
want you to tell me all about Oregon."
He wag captured by another friend and
the interview of the Interviewer was over.
Comes With His Staff to Attend the
Opening Ceremonies nnd Dedi
cate State Building.
The official representatives of the State
of Washington who will today appear for
the sister state at the opening exercises

party, headed by Governor Albert E.
Mead, was met at tho Union Station by a
reception committee of Exposition of
ficials and escorted to tho Oregon Hotel,
where state headquarters will 'be main
tained. Those constituting -the delega
tion are members of the Governor's
staff, the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives. Governor Mead is accom
panied by Mrs. Mead and a number of
other ladles are In the party.
The Washington Governor Is greatly
pleased at the prospect of an auspicious
beginning for the Fair and expressed
himself as delighted' with the preliminary
arrangements. His one concern last even
ing was for a rainless day and he de
clared that his' weather eye detected signs
of sunshine for today.

Chief Hunt Will Turn Headquarter'
Over to Captain of First Night
Relief Bailey Commands
Police in Parade.
Arrangements have been made by th
police to furnish protection to the multi
tudes who' will throng the city today.
The entire force will be on duty, together
with a large number of special officers, in
plain clothes, and staff detectives.
Chief of Police Hunt's presence will be
required in many places, and he will be
unable to remain in his office at head
quarters.. Therefore he has assigned Cap
tain Moore, commanding the first relief,
to be acting chief for the day, to direct
the workings of the central station forces,
in conjunction with Captain Gritxmacher.
The honor of commanding the police in
today's parade was conferred by the
Chief upon Captain Bailey, of the second
relief. This very responsible duty is con
sidered to be a great compliment to him.
because of the fact that he is the Junior
Captain Bailey has perfected the de
tails for the march. According to the
plans of Grand Marshal Steever, as pre
viously published, a platoon of mounted
police will head the parade. Captain Bailey
has assigned Sergeant Hammeraley to the
command of that platoon. A second pla
toon of patrolmen, acting as rear guards,
is called for, and Captain Bailey has as
signed Sergeant Baty to its command.
Will Keep Streets Clear.
Upon Captain Bailey and his forces de
volves the hard task of keeping the streets
along the line of "march clear. There
must be nothing in the way; street-cars,
vehicles and pedestrians will not be al
lowed to Interfere in any manner with
the. progress or tha parade. This requires
a vast amount 'of work at the hands of
the police, but so carefully have all de
tails been arranged by Captain Bailey and
the sergeants under him that no trouble
i anticipated.
When the line passes Into the Exposi
tion district, Captain Slover, in command
of that precinct, will have a large force
in readiness to assist. Throngs of people
will assemble close to the main entrance
of the Exposition grounds, and strong
details of patrolmen have been provided
to keep clear the line of march.
Many Police at Entrance.
Because of the large crowd that is cer
tain to be present, it is deemed advisable
for practically the entire police force to
be present at the grounds adjacent to the
main entrance, so that should any emer
gency arise, there will be ample protection-Captain
Gritzmacher, commanding the
headquarters patrol on the day relief, has
arranged to furnish good protection to
the various sections of the city, so that
no portion will be without police service.
Captain Slover, commanding the Expo
sition district, will open the barracks at
the head of Upshur street today for police
business. Chief Hunt has assigned 2?
patrolmen for the district, and Sergeants
Baty and Oelsner will command the sta
tion on the first andecond reliefs, re
spectively. The headquarters staff of detectives
have been assigned to duty in various
places, and many detectives from the
larger cities of the East and South will
be here during the Exposition to assist. A
complete secret-service system is la op
eration JInsIde the grounds, and the local
police have charge of the territory out
side. A call has been issued by Chief
Hunt for 139 more patrelsaea, aad the
