in yesterday and today they will take
... the sights of the Lewis and Clark
Two meetings were held at the
American Inn yesterday, one in the
morning and one In the afternoon. In
the evening the delegates were the
guests of the Commercial Club.
It was at first proposed that the
business sessions should continue for
two days, but when It was learned that
all important matters could be disposed
of on Monday, those in charge of
the programme concluded that it
would be better to clear off the slate
and leave today Tree for sightseeing.
"We shall take In the Fair and do our
best to keep out of Jail," said Presi
dent W. H. Mills yesterday afternoon.
The morning meeting was to have
been called to order at 9 o'clock, but a
slight delay was caused by the fact
that Mayor Lane was unable to get to
the Inn on time. Finally arrangements
were made to proceed without the
Two Hundred Delegates.
President Mills, of Norwalk, O..
called the convention to order, theVe
being in the neighborhood of 200 per
sons present. Mr. Mills stated that the
present session was' one of the most
important in the history of the organ
ization, and that members had come
thousands of miles to be present.
President Mills then introduced Colin
H. Mclsaac. of the Exposition excursion
bureau, who represented President
Goode, and welcomed the members of
the association to the Fair. Mr. Mc
lsaac spoke of the wealth and progress
of the Northwest and expressed a hope
that some of the visitors might see
their way clear to remain in this cpun
try. Another speaker who was received
with applause by the auditors was Gen
eral Passenger Agent A. L. Craig, of
the Harriman lines in Pjnrtland. Mr.
Craig made a short welcoming ad
dress, which was particularly appro
. priate. Colonel C. W. Mott. general
Immigration agent of the Northern Pa
cific Railway, made a short address,
and then followed remarks by C. C.
Goss. agent of the Iron Mountain route
nt Little Rock: D. B. Gardner, division
passenger agent of the Northern Pa
cific Railway, over whose road the ex
cursionists traveled westward; W. C.
McBrlde. of the Denver & Rio Grande;
William A. Cox. of the Chicago & North
western, over whose road the visitors
will return cast, and J. E. Van Dusen.
of New York.
Address by Japanese.
A particularly interesting feature of
the morning session was the appear
ance of Eitaro Sakuma, a representa
tive of the Japanese government. Mr.
Sakuma is traveling over the world Jn
search of information regarding rail
ways In general and transportation
matters in particular, and arrived In
this country about ten days ago. He
expressed his thanks to the convention
Xqr inviting him to be present and made
a short address in English. He ex
pressed his admiration for American
railroad methods and hoped that many
improvements would be Introduced In
his home country. He will soon, leave
for London and will return to Toklo
The afternoon session began prompt
ly at 2 o'clock. The meeting was de

Describes Setting of Exposition.
Portland scenery and that of Northern
Switzerland are Identical, says Hcrr Ar
nold Holinger. Swiss Consul at Chicago,
who reached Portland yesterday morning
to pay an official visit to the Exposition
as the representative of his government.
Herr Holinger landed at the Exposition
before breakfast, and was there until late
nt night. Most of his time he spent in
looking at the scenery, because, as he
explained It he had attended all the great
World's Fairs, so expositions had ceased
to be a novelty to him. but as for the
scenery, he had never before seen any
thing to exceed It.
"It makes me homesick." said Hcrr Hol
inger, as his eye took In the rich-hued
forests, foothills and distant mountain
peaks. "It rs identical with my old home.
Yonder is the Zurich and beyond the
Bernlse Juri," and the visitor pointed to
Mt, Hood and the chains of mountains In
the same general direction. "Mount Hood,
as you call it. is only Monte Rosa over
again. As 1 see these things I feel like
looking about for my old neighbors. I
never dreamad before that there wero
such pictures outside of Switzerland."
Herr Holinger is making a flying trip
and will start back to Chicago today,
after barely 36 hours in Portland.

selected by purchaser at time of buying

after are secured by depositing the return
portion of the ticket at points where stops
Considering the distance from large cen
ters of population where Interline bus!
ness originates. Indications are that the
number of tickets sold on account of the
Exposition will be very large. No
local tickets sold In ferritorv within
a radius of 500 miles of Portland are In
cluded, hence the figures, when compiled
at tne end or tne Fair period, will tell
an interesting story of the Interest aroused
In the North Pacific- Coast region through
out tee land. As a validation fee cf SO
cents Is charged for each ticket validated,
expense of maintaining the offices will be
covered by receipts from that source.
In addition to handling the interline
ticket, the Joint agency has authority for
extension of limit on local tickets sold
for 10. 3 or 30 days, extending each limit
to the number of days of the next longer
period, and collecting from the holder the

St- Louis was overrun with ticket-brokers
-of the irresponsible class last year,
to a degree hat caused much annoyance
to those who sought to secure cheaper
transportation through buying tickets of
fered for sale. Close scrutiny on the part
of joint agency clerks and assistance of
the courts brought a number of these to
book, but nowhere, except possibly at
Buffalo, have tne railroads had to con
tend with such bold attempts at negotia
tion of non-transferable transportation.

It is- the aim of the bureau to spake

and the size, scope, beauty and general
attractiveness of the Fair. It is Governor
Sarles' regret that North Dakota has no
separate building, but It is not bis fault.
It is known that the Governor strongly
favored an appropriation for a state
building, but the Legislature failed to set
apart the necessary funds. Governor
Sarles. it is related, then started a move

ers provided an Exposition fund, so that

Reception to Exposition Officials
and Governor Sarles Today and
President Goode. of the Lewis and Clark
Exposition, received a communication l
from Captain J. C. Cantwell. commanding
the U. S. S. McCulloch, informing him
of the fact that orders had been received
from Washington for the vessel to return
to San Francisco.
The announcement was received with
surprise and regret by the Exposition
officials, who confidently hoped that tho
McCulloch would be left at Portland until
the closing of the Fair, and the hundreds
of friends of the genial commander of
the ship and his staff of officers in this
city will share In the sentiment of regret
expressed by President Goode last even
Since arriving In port, the McCulloch
has tjeen open to the public every day
from 10 A. M. until P. M.. and of the
thousands of visitors w-hdent on board
there has not been heard one complaint
of impoliteness or' lack of attention shown
them by the officers and crew of the ves
sel. It speaks volumes for the efficiency
pf the revenue cutter service to chronicle
the fact that while In port and on leave
every day during their stay here not a
single member of the crew of the trim
dispatch-boat has been Intoxicated or dis
orderly on our streets. On the contrary.
on all sides the comment has been uni
versal that no smarter, cleaner or better
behaved seamen ever were seen anywhere. ,

One Thing: Food Can't Do.
Food can't exactly paint a picture, but
proper food to restore the dally wear and
tear on brain and nerves as well as body
can help. A successful artist say 3:
"I had been troubled with dyspepsia,
for 25 years and -ray system was so run
down I was so weak and miserable life
was a burden to me until I made a great
discovery about food.
"I am an artist by profession, and at
that time was painting a large marine
piece, but being In such poor health I
opuld not do Justice to it. and no matter
how often I changed it there seemed al
ways something wrong. Success lay Just
out of my reach, because I did not have
the strength and vigor of brain as well
as bodily strength to accomplish what I
knew lay within me.
"Looking around me for help. I decided
to try a food I had-heard so much about
and that was the way I was led to use
Grape-Nuts, and It came at the right
time. I had hardly given It a fair trial
before 1 began to feel so mnch better,
my dyspepsia disappeared and I com
menced to feel stronger aad more vigor
ous all over, head and aH, and It was not
loeg before I was back at my work
again with renewed energy and, interests
"Even mere sntatantial, proof of the
help I got frona this food was whoa I
aaiehed my painting and pat it up for
exhibition, ertties said. It was a. matter
piece, and I seld" ft a' short time ago' at
