Further Information iay be ob
tained from the official dally pro
gramme. "This Is the largest and most enthusias
tic gathering I have ever seen at the
Exposition in attendance at state day ex
ercises." That -was the statement made by Presi
dent H. W. Goode. as he appeared In the
balcony of the Utah building yesterday
afternoon, to deliver a welcome to Utah
visitors on the occasion of their state day.
Utah day proved a big occasion, and one
which will l6ng be remembered. And the
compliment paid Utahans by President
Goode means something, when It Is taken
Into account that he has appeared at the
state day exercises of a number of the
Union's greatest members.
There were fully 700 Utahans present.
From the rich fields and swales of Cache
Valley to the fertile vineyards of the
Bio Virgin, delegates poured in during the
week. Every one of them had on a Utah
badge, and a good word for Utah. They
spent much of their time in the Utah
building, absorbed in viewing the things
from their own state. Whoever thinks
Utah citizens are not boosters for tholr
own state should have been on hand at
the Utah building at any time yesterday.
Large Attendance of Utahans.
The exercises opened at 3 o'clock with
every seat In the building occupied and
every available inch of standing room
taken up. Many people were standing on
the broad veranda outside In the sun.
Flowers and flags festooned the walls
and hung In graceful streamers from pil
lars, walls and celling. Those partici
pating in the exercises occupied the re
ception balcony, while the visitors filled
the exhibit hall. The speakers Included
President Goode, Governor Chamberlain,
Governor John C. Cutler, of Utah; Apostle
John Henry Smith and Congressman Jo
seph Howell, of Utah.
Besides complimenting the Utah people
upon their large and enthusiastic showing.
President Goode, In the opening address,
paid a high tribute to the Utah Commls
elon for the excellent manner in which
the Utah exhibits have been arranged and
Governor Chamberlain, in extending
Oregon's greetings, added a word of
praise for the enthusiastic Utahans. and
expressed deep satisfaction in the spirit
of friendship that exists between the
Address by Governor Cutler.
He was followed by Governor Cutler,
the speaker of the day, who said, in
"I feel that the people of the great
State of Oregon, and especially the .citi
zens of prosperous Portland, are worths'
of sincere congratulation on the magnifi
cent showing made in this Exposition
The progress made by the Northwest,
and reflected in this great enterprise,
and the excellent prospects ahead of this
favored region, are subjects of the most
sincere felicitation. And this Exposition,
which is, in a way, the crowning event in
that career of progress so far, I wish to
compliment In the highest possible terms.
We can realize only in part what such an
event as this means to the western por
tion of our Nation, and especially to the
states of the Northwest. If the progress
already made in the building up of this
wonderful region has been rapid, we have
reason to believe that it will be greatly
accelerated as a result of the Exposi
tion which forms so magnificent a climax
to the work already done. All the states
forming the group represented and In
terested in the Exposition, are sharing
and will continue to share the benefits
arising from the' manifest prosperity of
the West Speaking for Utah, I can say
unreservedly that it is greatly interested
In the progress being made by the neigh
boring states. The building up of the
country along the waterways and rail
ways of the great West, means Increased
prosperity for all the states, and all are
equally interested in it. Therefore, when
such an event occurs as the one we are
participating in, and proves, as It will
prove, the means of making that desir
able progress all the more rapid, all of
us who live In the West, rejoice in the
movement, and thank Its promoters.
Will Live in History.
"The great event we are commemorat
ing, will live in history as one of the
most Important anfl Jruitful of pioneering
movements. Even we who are permitted

to partake of its benefits, are unable as
yet to fully appreciate all that it means
and will yet mean. Utah has a fellow
feeling for the Lewis and Clark expedi
tion, because of the similar and yet dls
yJmllar one which resulted in the settle
ment of the valleys along the Wasatch
Range. I . believe that the other statos
of the Northwest, all of which have had
their distinct pioneer movements, feel
interested in the results of the Unking
together of these various explorations,
into one scheme of colonization and
civilization. The eventful expedition of
Lewis and Clark; the rtnah of the gold
seekers to California and Nevada; the
journey of the pioneers to Utah; the work
of the hunters, trappers, and ranchers
in the winning and developing of the
western plains; and the preparation of
all these regions for the civilization we
now witness and enjoy, have all formed
epochs in our national history, whose
importance we can scarcely realize as
yet. And their effects will develop moro
and more as time goes on. in the
strengthening aitd betterment of the re
gions Interested. The trails made by
those explorers into strange lands,
are now marked by mpnumentn to their
foresight, bravery and industry; and
the way in which these various move
ments toward the West have been linked
together, so as to form a united whole,
leads one to think that an over-ruling
Providence must have guided them all.
For these and other reasons, the people
of Utah have more than ordinary interest
in this Exposition; for the hlstqjy it
commemorates reminds us of a similar
event, which gave us our prosperous
homes and pleasant prospects. We are
therefore proud to place our exhibits
here, and to welcome, on Utah Day, the
visitors who are inspecting them. On
behalf of the people of Utah. I extend
greeting to the people of the groat North
west, and say to them that kindred tlos
and experiences give rise to kindred feel
ings. By the ties of similar history and
kindred growth, we are your brethren
in strongest bonds of sympathy, and we
are proud to claim you as our best and
Ties or Brotherhood.
Nothing could be more effectual in the
strengthening of these ties of brotherhood
than this Exposition. The thanks of the
men and women "of the Western Statos
cannot be too heartily extended to the
enterprising citizens of Portland, who
have brought it into being. The natural
beauty of your scenery, unmatched by
that of any part of the world, enhanced
by the works of art and Industry, seen
on our way here and on our arrival, lead
us to extend our congratulations to the
people of the state, whose guestswc are, j
Aur uuuumg up sucn a country, estab
lishing such a city, and making possible
such an Exposition.
Apostle John Henry Smith, the next
speaker, described briefly the develop
ment of Utah from the early Mormon
settlement to the great thriving state of
today. He stated that there was much
in common between Utah and Orogon. and
that the histories of their advancement
road very much alike. Judge Booth, the
last speaker, briefly reiterated the happy
things that had already been said, and
gave way to the Mormon choir, whloh
sang. "Utah. We Love Thee, with fine
effect. Willard Welhe gave two veryN
pretty violin solos.
Reception Follows Exercises.
Following the exercises a reception was
held at which all were made welcome. In

IX LOG-ROLLING CONTEST.
Three Brothers Compete In Exhibi
tion at Guild's Lake.
The log-rolling contests at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition yestorday wore
somewhat of a disappointment, for sev
eral of the expected competitors failed to
appear, and the contest took place with
the three Anderson brothers, of Carson.
Wash., as th only entries.
Frank Anderson, who claims the North
west championship -in this line of sport,
won the event by defeating his brother
Arthur, in two out of three rolls The
contest took place on the lake, just off
the Bridge of Nations, and was witnessed
by the large crowd that has assembled
to witness the life-saving crew at their
regular drill. This branch of sport is con
fined principally to loggers and mon who
are employed in sawmills or logging
camps, for it roqulros an expert loggor

LIDS' FINE BIB
Royal Hawaiians Prove Great
PLEASING NOVELTY AT FAIR
Both as a Brass Band and as a
String Orchestra, Their Playing
Seems Almost Impossi
ble to Excel.
In a picturesque, unusual class all-by
ItscJf the Royal Hawaiian Band, from
Honolulu, of 33 members, has stepped
into the limelight, and made good. The
dusky-skinned musicians made their first
bow to a Portland audience at the Ex
position yesterday afternoon, and" began j
a two weeks' engagement that may be i
lengthened to another two weeks If nego-
tlatlons are successful. Enthusiastic
crowds hung around the bandstand all
the time the Hawaiians played and sang,
and applause was generous.
This band Is notable as being the or
ganization that won the second prize in
tho band competition at the World's Fair,
Chicago, in ISO, according to the Haw
aiian account of that memorable occasion
when the' best bands of the world com
peted. During the season of 1SS5-SS the
band played at the Mid-Winter Fair at
San Francisco. Nothing In this world
can be done without money that is an
admitted fact, and It is well known that
well-fed musicians do exist who play
music only for whafg In It. But not the
Hawaiians. They are big children who
play and sing their native songs, with
their whoje heart and soul, because near
ly everybody Is musical In their far off
Island home, the pearl of the Pacific.
When the proposition was made to
bring the Royal Hawaiian Band to the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, the enthusi
astic supporter was Colonel Henry E.
Dosch. who had previously heard tho
band play at Honolulu when he was one
of the advance representatives for tho
Exposition people. "Have the Hawaiians
play against the best American bands?"
exclaimed Portland critics, but Colonel
Dosch stuck to his point. It was an
opportunity for a capitalist, for the mere
cost of transportation from Honolulu to
this country of musicians, musical lib
rary, baggage, etc.. was over 53,000. Then
it was that a Hawaiian capitalist. J. C
Cohen, agreed to take the financial risk
because be had faith in the band and
that it would make good. Mr. Cohen was
born in Buffalo. N. Y.. and has for sev
eral years been In the theatrical business
In Honolulu. His assistant manager is
Warmly Greeted in San Francisco.
No sooner had the Hawaiians arrived
in San Francisco, tired and otherwise up
set by their sea voyage from Honolulu,
than San Francisco people who had heard
the band on a previous visit insisted that
the band give at least three concerts.
"But my men haven't recovered from tho
sea voyage, and we are about due to
play at the Lewis and Clark Exposition."

were given all the same, and the Haw

heart of the profession standing-room

exercises of this nature. Frank Motter
presided as chairman, and Introduced the
various speakers. Governor Chamberlain
broke the Ice and put the audience In a

stories about the Southern darkies. When
he got them in the right mood, he settled
