Further information may be ob
tained from the official dally pro
gramme. Idaho, the gem of the mountain,
claimed the Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion as her own yesterday, the thou
sands of men and women, and even
children, from the broad irrigated
plvJng and ranges of the youngest
commonwealth In the Northweast cov
ering themselves and their state with
laurels and honors. That Idaho has
taken a most justifiable pride and In
terest in the Exposition, and does not
intend to allow Oregon to reap all the
benefits and credit of this vast public
enterprise, was vividly and indelibly
impressed upon all who saw the
Idahoans celebrate at the Fair yester
day. In the book of history of the Ex
position, Idaho and her people will
have-a page alone, as never before has
the Fair been the scone of much re
It was all Idaho yesterday, and the
Lewis and Clark Exposition was an
Idaho institution. Or at least It was
captured in its entirety by the thou
sands of .enthusiasts from the Gem
State. No resistance was made, the
people of Oregon gladly and most gra
ciously surrendering the Exposition
without the slightest evidence of re
luctance. No keys were presented to
the strenuous people from Idaho, as
the gates were all open, so wide indeed
that the hinges were almost torn from
the sockets. They wore not looked
upon as strangers from a far-off land,
who merited a cordial reception, but
as brothers and sisters of a neighbor
ing state who were alike vitally In
terested in the great Western World's
Idaho's Great. Celebration.
With the opening of the gates began
the celebration of Idaho day. As soon
as the turnstiles were ready to oper
ate and the ticket sellers in tholr
plaeofat the windows, the Idaho peo
ple began to flock through the gates,
as they wore anxious to start the ball
a-rolllng, having only one day and
half a night in which to cole
brate the participation of their state.
"Men and boys paraded the grounds dis
tributing pamphlets and cards, which
described the wonderful and mnrvelous
resources and advantages of the great
commonwealth of Idaho. The future
was painted In printed words of a
golden hue, and the past was exploited
to substantiate the predictions.
All Idaho Represented.
The Idaho State building, at the side
of the Lakeview Terrace overlooking
the lake, was thronged from the Gem
State from early morning until it was
closed at night. Here all the Idahoans
made their headquarters and met their
friends. Every town of importance in
Idaho was represented at the state
building by more or less visitors, -who
wore badges and insignia of their
home city. Idaho colors were every--where,
and It was an exceedingly un
lucky visitor at the Exposition yester
day who did not proudly wear the
white, yellow and the purple. The
state badges, on which -were inscribed
the words "Idaho, the Gem of the
Mountain," In neat, bold type, wer
also very much In evidence.
While the Idahoans made things
bum during the morning at the Expo
sition, they did not loosen up all of
tholr wealth of enthusiasm until early
in the afternoon, when they gave
their parade. Then the people of the
Gem. State showed others, the Oregon
ians not excepted, how to be loyal to
their Expedition. Fully 3000 men,
womon and children marched through
the grounds cheering and boosting for
Idaho. The parade started in the vi
cinity of the Idaho building at about
1:30 o'clock In the afternoon.
It was led by the Idaho State Band,
of 45 pieces, closely followed by Gov-'
erifo'r .Frank R. Gooding and his official
staff, in automobiles, after which
came the rank and file. Executive
Commissioner Robert M. McBrlde, who
has done .so much in making the state
building so popular at the Exposition,
consented to walk at the head of the
band, after- many requests that ho
should receive the honor. The line of
march was across Lakeview Terrace,
through the Trail, across the Bridge
of All Nations, and return by the same
route to the Idaho building.
Oration for Idaho.
Governor Gooding rode in the first
automobile in' the parade. All along the
line ofimarch be received a hearty ova
tion from the thousands of people who
witnessed the remarkable exhibition of
tne Idaho snlrlt. The T.ioVm QtrA tj, a
j which played almost Incessantly along
i .mi oj. marcyi, was also heartily
J cheered. The men of the rank and file
; were equipped with swagger canes, and
i mnn. nf th.m v. - .. . -
... j "ivui wnicu uunners telling oi
me resources of the particular part of
Idaho in which they reside Wnrlv oil
of them had their pockets full of little
printed cards, which exploited the re
sources of Idaho. These were scattered
among the spectators to the parade by
The visitors from the different towns
marcned together and they added to
the life of the parade, by yelling lustily
for their city and everything la gen
eral that pertained to Idaho. The wom
en were as faithful as the men, and
marched the entire route- The littlo
children ran alone- with fhelr fnthrs
and mothers dointr what thrv rnnl.l in
the great common movement to boost
Juano. The marchers were also given
great ovations by the people who wit
nessed the parade.
Those who participated in the parade
adjourned to the pavilion annex of the
New York building whero the Idaho day
oxerclxos wore held. This large audito
rium was packed with people, most of
whom were from the Gem State, all of
the available scats being taken. Sev
eral hundred people were obliged to
stand. When Governor Gooding, his
party and President Goode walked to
the platform, the audience ro.M to II

J. F. Ailshie, Justice of the Supreme

made a few Introductory remark,
which greatly pleased the audience.

President H. W. Goode was tne first
speaker to be introduced by Chairman
Ailshie. He made an address of wel
come on behalf of the Lewis and Clark
Exposition. President Goode said when
the Exposition was first started, Idaho
was counted upon for support. He said
that Idaho had done better than was
expected. He told of the liberal pat
ronage that had been accorded the Fair
by the people of the Gom State. H
spoke particularly of the Idaho press,
telling how thoroughly they had ex
ploited the Exposition. He also said a
few complimentary words about tho
Idaho building at the Exposition, and
thoee who have it In charge. Prosident
Goode concluded by Faying that Idaho
had probably participated In the Expo
sition with more enthusiasm than any

Congressman French's Speech.
He was followed by Congressman
Burton L. French, the youngest mem
ber of the lower house of the National
legislative body. Congressman French
is serving his second term in Congress,
and is only a trifle over 31 years of
age. He Is a brilliant speaker, and tho
audience was very much Interested in
his address. He spoke at length on the
question of undesirable immigration,
sounding a warning in regard to coolie
labor. He said In part:
"The character of the population Is
the most important factor in any state
or in any nation. A river cannot rise
above the rivulets which feed its foun
tain head, neither can a nation bo
greater than the average citizenship of
its people. And right here let me say
we cannot guard too zealously the qual
ity of the people who come to our
shores. At a time like thl6 when we ar
bidding for commerce, wben we aro bid
ding for immigration it is time to think,
and time to act. We want people, we
want immigration, but we want whole
some immigration. Today. In my opin
ion, the greatest problem that we havo
to solve is the handling of the un-
American element that Is flocking to
our land. Last year over a million peo
ple came, the year before ajmost a
million, and during many years a num
ber in almost like proportion. Most of
these people are desirable, but som
are not. Most of them make good citi
zens, but others do not. In Idaho, we
have a. large population of Scandina
vian and Germanic peoples. We have
seme from the British Islands and some
from France, and they are good peo
ple. They are a class that we welcome
to our shores. They make good citi
zens for they are good citizens in the
countries from whjch they come. And
what is true in Idaho, is true in Ore
gon and true In Washington. The
Northwest Is favored beyond any other
portion of our country. But because we
i are so favored, we cannot be blind to
i the dangers that threaten our country
at large, aye, and threaten our own

as Portland day at the, Lewis and Clark

It has been planned to make Portland
day the greatest event of the Fair, as
It Is fitting it should be. The manage
ment has expressed the hope that the
attendance would reach the 6O.0CO mark
upon that occasion and to bring this de.
s4re to fulfillment the people will all have
to work In harmony. One absolutely es
sential factor in working up a record
breaking attendance would be a closed
town. It Is hoped that all merchants will
co-operate In this matter and that every
business house in the city that possibly
can will close Its doors, thus giving Its
employes an opportunity to attend the
Fair and turning the tide of customers
from their shopping to the Exposition
Do Xot Favor Saturday.
Practically all the business houses stand
ready to carry out this programme upon
any day except Saturday. On this one
day, however, many proprietors say that
it would be Impossible for them to sus
pend operations and that they will make
no attempt to do so If the Fair manage
ment persists In naming Saturday for this
occasion. Some tlrms arc not so decisive
in their statements on this point, but all.
with the exception of the Jewish mer
chants, are united In their preference of
any other day to Saturday. They believe
that the matter has not gone far enough
for a change to work disadvantageous!'
In any way and conrtdently expect "some
other date to be set for the Rose City
Said W. P. Olds, of Olds. Wortman &
King: "It Is my opinion that the retail
men are united In tholr preference for
any other day than Saturday for the ob
servance of Portland day. The sales upon
Saturday In many lines such as dry goods
are double those of any other day In the
week. In some departments they are three
times as large. Under these conditions
it can easily be seen that It would be a
great hardship upon the merchants to
close on this-day. I know that all firms,
like ourselves, are loyal to the Fair and
wish to co-operate In making Portland
day a success, but we feel that the Ex
position management should consider our
wish in this matter. Furthermore, this
course would bring two holidays together
and many people would avail themselves

Otherwise would attend the Fair. Some
stores absolutely could not close. We
cannot state at this time whether we

- Would Not Close Saturday.
"We would absolutely refuse to
close upon Saturday," said Henry Rob
erts, of Roberts Bros. "Oun normal
trade Is at least doubled upon that day,
and we could not afford it. I think it
would be more satisfactory all around
if a change is made. The attendance
would bo much larger any other day.
We would be glad to close at any other
time which might be set."
R. M. Gray, of the Gray Clothing
Company, was of like opinion. "You
may 3tato" tor me that we would posi
tively refuso to closo," he said "We
are perfectly willing to close any,
other day and would gladly help In
any way we could, financially or other
wise, but this is a matter that could
be arranged to convenience the mer
chants without inconveniencing any
one else. If we are going to make
Portland day the general celebration
that it should be a change In date "will
have to be made."
"Eggort-Young Company Is much
opposed to the date set." said Freder
ick Eggert. "We think that some
other day would do Just as well and
are willing to. help by closing for the
entire day if a change Is made. I be
lieve that merchants are united on
this point." -

John T. McDonnell said that McAllen
5c McDonnell shared the common opin
ion. "We would be willing to close
any other day and have no special
preference. We- would not . like to
close Saturday, but I would not state
positively that we would not do so."
"No more unfavorable day for us
could have been chosen," said F. Dres

business on Saturday . than on any
other two days. It would not only
mean a big loss to us, but would great
ly inconvenience our customers. foV
we handle a great deal of perishable
goods that could not be supplied upon

When asked if a change In date
would be made. President Goode
said that the matter had not yet
been considered. "I cannot tell any
thing .about it at present." he said. "I
have no Idea whether another day

JURY OP AWARDS.
All the Members Have Now Been
At a meeting of the committee of ex
hibits. heW yesterday afternoon at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition. Sylvester
Farrell. of Portland, was appointed sec
retary of the superior Jury of awards,
with H. B. Hardt. of the division of ex
hibits, acting secretary. President H. W.
Goode and Colonel Henry E. Dosch, di
rector of exhibits, remain as members
of the superior jury of awards. The oth
er members of the jury are ex-Mayor
Geoge H. Williams, chairman, and Theo
dore B. Wilcox. The action of the com
mittee of exhibits yesterday is thought
to settle definitely the misunderstanding
that arose between the Oregon State
Commission and the Lewis and Clark
Corporation. An agreement was reached
last Saturday, when a committee from
the Oregon State Commission called upon
President H. W. Goode.
Considers the Complaints.
The committee on exhibits also consid
ered the complaints that have been reg
istered, concerning the provisions of the
rules and regulations governing the
awarding of the prizes and medals that
the exhibitors furnish the division of ex
hibits three samples of the articles to be
passed upon. With the exception of a
salmon exhibit In the Forostry building,
and the California building exhibits, all
the exhibitors at the Exposition have fur
nished the division of exhibits three sam
ples of the articles they have entered.
The samples are now stored in a room
In the Administration building, whero
they will be passed upon by the Jurors.
Realizing tho part the State of Califor
nia has played In the Exposition, the
committee of exhibits Is very anxious
that the differences regarding the systom
of making the awards be adjusted satis
factorily to all. For this reason no de
cision was reached yesterday, and an
other meeting will be held this afternoon.
Members of the committee will hold a
consultation with Commissioner J. A.
Filcher. of California, today, when it is
expected he will give a full presentation
of the reasons why the California Com
mission refuses to acknowledge the regu
lations governing the present system of
California Takes Stand..
Sometime ago the committee on exhib
its, in answer to a protest from the Cali
fornia Commission regarding the furnish
ing of three samples to the division of ex
hibits, excepted wines and oils, these to
be Judged whero exhibited. The California
Commission is not satisfied with this con
cession, and desires that all of the arti
cles be examined at the respective build
ings wherein they are exhibited.
The committee selected the gold, silver
and bronze medals which will be awarded
the exhibits at the Exposition. On one
side -will be engraved a picture of Lewis
and Clark, with Columbia between them,
viewing for the first time the Pacific
Ocean. On the other side space Is left
for the exhibitor's name. The diploma
which will be conferred upon the exhib
itors was also selected. The committee
on exhibits Is composed of Theodore B.
Wilcox, chairman. President H. W.
Goode. Colonel Henry E. Dosch, Secre
tary Henry E. Reed. A. H. Dcvcrs and
H. L. Corbett.
Control'Orcgon Savings Bank.
Tho controlling stock in the Oregon
Savings Bank was purchased yesterday
by Walter H. and H. A. Moore, of Moro,
Sherman County, Or., from Ralston and
Morris. Walter H. Moore will assume
the presidency of the bank, succeeding
L. O. Ralston. Under the new manage
ment. It is expected that the working
personnel of the bank will bo changed.
A stockholders' meeting will be held In
a few days. Mr. Morris and Mr. Ralston
will retain a share In the bank.
The Moore brothers have been identified
with, the banking business In Sherman
County, but have disposed of most of
their holdings there in order to assume
control of the Portland institution.
Despondent, She Tries to Drown.
Being despondent and homesick. Miss
Delia Dalton, of Kansas City. Mo., leaped
from the forward deck of the steamer
America at the foot of Washington street
at noon yesterday into the Willamette
River. She Intended to commit suicide.
Miss Dalton was rescued from the wa

and Deckhand Tooley. of the America.
The police were summoned and took
the girl, who Is 17 years old. to head

IN A WOMAN'S HEAD M
STRAITOE SENSATIONS CAUSED BY
Dr. Williams' Plak Pills Afford Jtellel
from Distressing Experiences Caused
" Before I began to take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills,1' said Mrs. Mary Reagan,
of No. 86 Kilburn street, Fall River,
Mass., recently, " I was in andHmt of
bed all the time, but now I stay up all
day and do all my own work.
"I was badly run down, from over
work. One day noises began in my head
and. almost made me crazy. My head
felt as if a tight baud had been put
around it, aud the pressure and the
sounds made me so uneasy that I often
had to walk the floor all night when I
should have been sleeping.
" My stomach was in bad shape, and I
had smothering sensations. At such
times my body seemed bloodless, my
hands were like chalk and my face
turned yellow. The doctor said I had
dyspepsia in the worst form. Then my
nerves gave way and I was completely
prostrated. At night I could not sleep,
and in the daytime if I bent over to
pick up a rug the smothering sensation
would come on at once.
"The first box of Dr. Williams Pink
Pills that I nsed quieted my nerves
so that I could get a good night's
sleep, which was a new experience for
me. Before I began to use them I was
a nervous wreck and feembled at tha
slightest sound. I was so weak that I
had to sit down and rest everyfew steps
when I went up stairs. Now I can run
up a whole flight at once. The smother
ing sensations have gone and the noises
in my head have stopped entirely. My
appearance has greatly improved, for
friends who were alarmed on my ac
count before, now say: How well you
are looking 1' My husband spent over a
hundred dollars on treatment for me that
was worthless, but a few boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills brought me sound,
These pill3 are. guaranteed to be free
from stimulating or harmful drug3
of any description and may be taken
without fear of injury to the most deli
cate system. They quickly cure ner
vous disorders of every kind, check
wasting diseases and build up strength.
They are sold by all druggists, or will
be sent, postpaid, on receipt of price, 50
cents per box, Bix boxes for $3.50 by the
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenec
Heney for 550,000 damages, asking
that the demurrer filed by Mr. Heney
to the complaint be dismissed because
the latter and W. J. Burns. United
States Secret Service agent, failed to
obey a notice served upon them to
appear before Thad Vreeland, notary,
on Tuesday to be examined as wit
nesses. There Is a statute -which pro
vides that the evidence of defendants
can be taken before a notary.
