Wyoming occupied the center of the
stage at the Exposition yesterday and the
limelight of public prominence shone full
upon It, the land of mines, cattle ranges
and broad irrigated plains being particu
larly ably represented and exploited by
hundreds of enthusiastic visitors, among
them the Chief Executive' of the state.
Governor Bryant B. Brooks. Governor
Brooks Is accompanied to Portland by
his entire staff. Besides the Wyoming
people in attendance, the celebration of
the day was enlivened by the presence of
many former residents of the state.
The former Wyoming citizens were
very .numerous, being attracted to tho
?Sxpsaltlon by fond remembrances of the
many pleasant months or years they had
spent In the state. They were only too
willing to Join hands with their neigh
bors of the past and unite 'm the com
mon purpose of bringing Wj-omlng to
the front. How well they accomplished
their designs and desires, can only be
appreciated by those who visited the Ex
Everywhere at the Fair.
Wyoming was everywhere at the Fair.
It was talked about, shouted about and
read about. "Are you from Wyoming?"
was the popular question asked at the
Exposition yesterday. The answer was
always In the affirmative as the visitors

In doing what they could in boosting
Wyoming badges were at a premium
yesterday. The people from Wyoming
came prepared to supply the demands of
hundreds of people, but they were utterly
swamped by the thousands who were
desirous of procuring an insignia of the
state. The hardened Exposition officials,
who have become so accuetomed to en
tertaining Wyoming visitors and assist
ing in the celebration of special days
that they have begun to look upon It as
a matter of routine, were among those
Infected with the genuine Wyoming en
thusiasm. Tho concessionaires were
caught In the rush and became so inter
ested In entertaining the people from
Wyoming that they forgot to tell about
the sorrows resulting from the Sunday
closing of the Trail. They gave special
shows, lowered their prices of admissions
In many instances and did their part In
entertaining the Wyoming guests of the

livered the address of welcome on behalf
of the Exposition management. He spoke
In glowing terms of the showing made
by Wyoming in the agricultural and min
ing exhibits, and thanked Governor
Brooks and tho people of the state for
their hearty co-operation In making the
Exposition a success.
Commissioner Richardson, of the
Wyoming exhibits, who presided as chair
man, next introduced Mayor Lane, who.
In the absence of Governor Chamberlain,
welcomed the visitors to Portland and
Oregon. Mayor Lane won the friend
ship of the Wyomlngltes by telling them
that he thought their state had reached
a higher stage of civilization than that
occupied by Oregon. In speaking of
woman's suffrage. He stated, however,
that he hoped that by next year Oregon
would have redeemed herself.
Address by Governor Brooks.
Amid tremendous applause. Governor
Brooks, the most popular executive that
ever sat in tho Gubernatorial chair in
Wyoming, was Introduced. Governor
Brooks Is not a professional politician,
but a cattleman, owning one of the larg
est ranches in the state. He has always
been a prominent figure in Wyoming be
cause of his Interest In everything per
taining to the advancement of the state,
and ho was elected Governor with very
little opposition. All the people from
Wyoming like to speak of "Our Gover
nor." and his name is a household word.
Governor Brooks, a Republican, by his
clean and business-like administration,
has won the admiration of his political
enemies and Is equally beloved by the
people of both parties.
."The cltlzons of Wyoming have as
sembled at this marvelously beautiful and
Instructive Exposition to celebrate
Wyoming day. and I am requested to
give a short epitome of our past exper
iences, present conditions and future
possibilities." said Governor Brooks after
the applause resulting from his appear
ance had subsided. "Our state is chang
ing rapidly from a purely pastoral region
of flocks and herds into a great agricul
tural commonwealth. During the last few
years land values have more than
doubled: good Irrigated lands selling from
$30 to $75 nn acre. With n population
of 50.000 people. Wyoming was admitted
to statehood, malting the 44th state in
the Union, and today wo celebrate our
15th anniversary. During these years of
statehood our population has trebled,
while progress in every industry has been
gratifying and substantial.
Hcclnmatlon of Lands.
"The United States Government,
through It6 reclamation service, has
under way four great Irrigation projects
in Wyoming, which, when completed will
reclaim over 500,000 acres of land. These
Government projects will more than
double the population of Wyoming. In
addition, many private enterprises are In
progress of construction and thousands
of acres are now open to settlement.
Following in the wake of this agricultural
development, which Is the safe and sure
foundation of all wealth, will come the
construction of the railroads, the building
up of new towns and cities, the develop
ment of our gold, silver, copper and other
minerals, the establishment of manu
facturing Industries and all the Innum
erable activities of a rapidly growing
state. We need laborers and skilled me
chanics of all kinds."
The exercises were concluded with an
address by Associate Justice J. A. Van
Orsdel, who said in part:
"Fifteen years ago today Wyoming was
admitted as a state. Cities and towns had
sprung up, mines of Incalculable wealth
had been developed and vast fortunes had
been amassed. N'o territory ever came
Into the Union better equipped for state
hood or with a finer array of public In
stitutions. There .is a larger wealth per
capita possessed by tho residents of
Wyoming today than In any other state
orcountry In the world. This can be best
appreciated when I state that there Is
yet almost a' square mile of tprrltory for
every man. woman and child In the state.
Wyoming Is a new state and we need
capital to develop our vast and varied

PORTLAND SHOULD GIVE MORE LOYAL SUPPORT TO LEWIS

In the crowds that pays through the turnstiles of the Exposition each day there are comparatively few
Portland people probably not more than 15 or 20 per cent. It is outside patronage that is making the
agreeably heavy attendance returns and assuring the success of the Exposition. That the percentage of
Portlanders passing Into the Fair grounds daily should be much heavier there can be no question. Portland
and vicinity should supply at least half the attendance. That the city had not the slightest difficulty in
flooding the Exposition ground? with a tremendous crowd, the opening day. Fourth of July and other spe
cial occasions bear ample witness. Only local participation should be steady, and not spasmodic, inasmuch
as it is this community to which the major portion of the benefits will accrue.
Not that the city is setting a precedent In this matter, for it has been the complaint of other Exposi
tions that local patronage was not heavy. Only there is more need for local patronage at the Lewi3 and
Clark Exposition than at those of the pasL The outlying territory within a radius of 500 miles Is not very
populous. Therefore the Fair must draw its attendance from home or from afar. Answering the call to
see a great new country a veritable fairyland of scenic beauty and natural wealth people from a distance
have responded liberally and have assured the success of the Exposition enterprise. Portlnnd people should
add to the success of the Fair. The attendance of local people should make a big showing each day. Go
to the Fair as often as possible. There Is pleasant recreation there, or a liberal education. Added to those
things is the duty of supporting an enterprise, the fullest success of which means evcrythln-r to Portland.

Mankato. Minn., president of the National

Welcome to Exposition.
Colonel H. E. Dosch represented Pres
ident Goode and the Exposition officials,
and welcomed the visitors In their behalf.
J. B. Noble, of Hartford, Conn., was in
troduced by President McConnell. Mr.
Noble thanked those who had extended
the welcome, and expressed the apprecia
tion of the food and dairy delegate for
the generous reception they had received.
Mr. Noble spoke of the grandeur of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, and what
great difference existed between the ques
tion of pure food as It now existed, and
what was thought of the question when
Lewis and Clark made their eventful jour
ney In 1E0I-5.
President McConnell then took the floor
and dlpjussed the food question from Its
earliest Inception. He said, in part:
In the 15th century and in the three cen
turies following, comparatively little progress
was made In pure-food legislation. Pure-food
agitation continued. howe-er. with some de
gree of progress In France and England. The
latter- at the present time probably hi tie
best pur-food lawi found In the world. Since
the year 1S77 there has been an attempt to
pass pure-fool legislation In this country- We
have quite extensive municipal and f tat- laws
in some cases models of their kind, but the
necefslty of a National food law covering the
whole question In it relation to manufactures
and commerce between the states nd terri
tories Is apparent to all thinking men. the
lack of uniformity not only facilitates the
work of nophisllcatlon of food products, but
It tends to confusion and uncertainty In the
preparation of proper foods for the market.
In the matter of labels and paekage. the
conglomerate, and conflicting masn of state

This question was presented to Judge

Joseph Mayer & Bros Seattle; Leo M.
Sautter. John Chertok. Walter A. Durham
and Oregon Plating Works. Aronson ob
tained a copyright by filing an application
with the Secretary of State and paying
the necessary fee. He asserts that the
defendants are engaged In the manufac
ture and sale of brass and metal badges
similar to those which he has placed upon
the Portland market, and asks the court
permanently to enjoin them from so do
ing. Thfc argument yesterday was by
O'Dav. counsel for Aronson. and C. M
Idleman and Alex Bernstein for the de
fense, on a motion to dissolve a prelim
Inary Injunction granted at the time the
suit was filed.
O'Day contended that the trade mark
possessed by Aronson gives him an ex
elusive right forthe manufacture of these
badges, chains, scarf pins. hatDlns, etc..
containing the heads Lewis and Clark
and surrounded with the words and fig
ures. Lewis and Clark Exposition. 1905.
Counsel on the opposing side argued that
Aronson was simply selling his copyright.
and not his article: that Lewis and Clark
heads were not subject to trade mark.
and further, that a trade mark was only
Intcnded to designate a certain brand or
quality of goods. Counsel said: "The
mere fact of his having a date and names
around the heads amounts to nothing.
The mere fact that he can file something
with the Secretary of State gives him
no better right than he had before. A
trade mark Is what he Is. selling, not a
trade mark that makes the articles and
designates the quality."
Mr. Bernstein contended that so long
as the design of tho others was different
from that of Mr. Aronson. and does not
deceive the public, an injunction would

the officers of the National association

Invitation of tho state organization to

the question of giving women equal repre

of the Oregon commonwealth. Before the

Oregon association was forwarded to

does not engage In state campaigns unless

of the state, but It Is always ready to

any field which looks promising, and
which needs Its aid. It has not yet been
determined who will take charge of tho
Oregon campaign, but that it will be one
of the most able workers in the suffrage
