It Is expected they will be of lOiort duration, with Intervening speHn of fair weather. EDWARD A. BBA.LS. District Forecaster. Showers will probably occur today, but it is expected that these will be of short duration, and that there will be plenty of sunshine in between for tho opening exercises of the Exposition. From past experience, good weather might be expected on June L but pres ent meteorological conditions make this improbable. According to-the law of averages and weather bureau statistics. Port landers may expect rain on June 1 one year out of three. During the 31 years since 1S71, rain has fallen on June 1 but 12 times, and of the 12 rainy days, five wit nessed a fall of less than .02 of an inch, a. very small amount. During the last 15 years the heav iest fall on June 1 was In 1SS3. when near ly half an Inch of wafer descended, or or to be exact, . inch. The figures in mil are as xoiiows, r standing ior trace: 1P0 0.01 1S0 0.00 1SS3 0.00 1S94 0.00 1S93 0.00 1&03 0.00 1902 0.0 1 1P01 T 1&00 0.00 1S2 0.10 1S90 . 0.1 1S01 0.00 1600 0.16 1S9R 0- i$Vt T "A cloudy condition prevails through out the entire North Pacific States," said District Forecaster Beals yesterday, "and we may .expect showers on Thursday.

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 11 tlOS&PH O , CAMNON from cither the Morrison or the Madison-street bridges, thus avoiding the crowding, at the Third-street transfer points. 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 In handling the big crowds, provided alt the plans laid work out as hoped Tor and as the tryout last night would indicate. The American Inn Company has. near ly completed the construction of its short line from Twenty-eighth street to the Inn. It Is expected that the lino will be complete in a day, or tat the latest in two. and then a private car will be operated between tho house and the Junction with the main line.

UNCLE JOE" HERE Speaker of House of Represen tatives Is in Portland, PLEASED WITH THE STATE 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 bearing. 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 smile. "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.

MOORE ACTING CHIEF 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. 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 actios of the City Ceuncfi is aaxJooaiy awaited.
