groatest interest In Portland today, and
the topic of all well-regulated conversa
tions. Today Is Babies' day at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition.
Hundreds of anxious, expectant mothers
tirerlmpatlently awaiting the hour when
they may take their precious bundles to
the Fair, there to exhibit them to an ad
miring world. "What mother Is there who
has not half-pitied an unknowing multi
tude which has never beheld the exquisite
"""mite she lulls to sleep each night, and
sometimes half a doxen times each night?
And this Is the day she Is going to give
the world a glimpse of this rare creation,
the beauty of which has been shared here
tefore by only a narrow circle of friends
Judges Will Decide.
It may be the Judges of Infants provided
"by the Exposition will have sense enough
to award a prize to her precious one. How,,
can they help but do so, for where Is
there another Infant so beautiful? How
ever, If Baby doesn't get a prize award,
what's the difference? A lot of men Judges
can't be oxpected to know a great deal
about babies, and they'll be bound to
pick out some baby that Isn't as fine as
hers. If they cannot pick her baby from
the crowd they must be a stupid lot. In
deed. Baby is In Its very finest form. too.
and will wear Its very finest bib and tuck
er. Of course. It would be the best of
the lot, with nothing on but a flour sack,
but these trifling matters of dress might
have some Influence on a lot of unknow
ing Judges, so on -goes the finery- Hor
rors! What if baby should get to crying
and acting mean and the Judges should
award It the prize for being the worst
behaved Infant at the Fair. "Wouldn't
that be terrible. But, then, Baby's so
well behaved and such a smart baby that
it will know better, and It seldom cries
or frets, so what's the use worrying.
Entries Number 826.
Up to last evening there were 826 entries
for the baby contest, which will occur in
the Auditorium at 3 o'clock. Prior to
this evenj. the babies' parade will take
place. This feature begins promptly at
2 o'clock, and all mothers who desire their
hopefuls to participate should be on hand
10 or 15 minutes earlier than that time.
The place for assembling is at the Pa
vilion annex, immediately behind the New
York building. When you get inside the
Fair grounds go straight ahead until you
are past the Agricultural building, then
turn teO'our right. At the first crossing
turn again to your left, and after travel
ing 200 feet in this direction you will find
yourself right where you started for.
There will be some one handy to tell you
how to enter the baby In the parade. The
line of march Is' comparatively short and
on level ground. The parade will end at
the Auditorium, where the making of
awards will take place.
Dan McAllen Will Attend.
The feature of the exercises will be re
marks by Dan McAllen, who is the author
of Babies' day. Mr. McAllen Is a great
authority on babies, and among other
distinctions, bears the honor of being the
father of the Exposition itself. He did
notshave to nurse that Infant to maturity,
however, but left it for H. W. Goode,

Aeronaut Beechey Has.Ship.in
- Perfect- Control.
CIRCLES OREGONIAN TOWER
Gelatine Starts From Fair Grounds,
Beats Cnrsv Into the City and
Returns to Place Whence
What Js pronounced the most satisfac
tory airship flight ever made was effected
yesterday forenoon when the Gelatine,
manned by Aeronaut Lincoln Beachey,
left the Exposition grounds, encircled the
Oregonlan tower, maneuvered over the
business portion of the city and returned
to the Exposition landing within a few
feet of the starting place.
Not only did the airship cover this dis
tance of five miles without once becoming
refractory, but it did so In an amazing
short period of time. It made better time
In traveling from the Exposition to the
Oregonlan tower than do the street
cars, covering the Journey In a trifle more
than 16 minutes.
Thousands Watch Flight.
Thousands saw the performance from
the streets and Exposition grounds. As he
reached the business portion of the city
Beachey dipped his vessel nearer the
earth until he cleared the higher build
ings less than 200 feet. His manner of op
erating his chargo was easily discernible
from the ground. Several times the
young aeronaut paused to wave hla cap
in response to cheering throngs.
The airship started on its Journey at
11 o'clock from the Aeronautic Concourse.
Inventor Baldwin instructed Beachey to
visit the city. For some time young
Beachey says It has been hlsambltlon.to
encircle the big Oregonlan tower, al
though heretofore he has felt a reluctancy
in starting on such a difficult Journey.
He found the weather conditions Ideal
upon mounting Into the air, and decided
that the time was ripe for making his
dreamed of trip. Heading direct for the
Oregonlan tower he wavered from his
course not half a dozen yards at any
Shows Remarkable Control.
As the vessel turned about the tower a
remarkable exhibition of control was
given which did much to establish the
dlrlgiblllty of airships. After passing over
the Poatofflce building Beachey headed
back to the Exposition. He ran his vessel
up to a height "of 200 feet and then came
another remarkable exhibition when he
headed its nose foward St. Vincent's
Hospital and reached that point with an
altitude of less than 200 feet. He then
arose to a height of nearly 300 feet and
again descended gently Into the Exposi
tion grounds, landing safely In the Aero

flight, and are confident that the prac

STOCK SHOW HEADY
Blooded Horses and Cattle for
MANY HAVE ARRIVED HERE
One of the Greatest Events of Its
Kind Will Open With Entries
From All Over the
The whinnying of blooded, high-strung
horses, the mooing of restless cows and
the plaintive bleating of many sheep gave
to the Govefcfiment peninsula at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition last night the air of
a great stock farm. Fifteen hundred head
of stock there were, filling a dozen big
stables and Inclosures. The final ship
ments from the East had arrived during
the day from the East ami Middle West.
The greatest stock show ever seen west
of the Rockies Is now practically ready
for opening on Tuesday morning.
There were 1$ cars of stock In a special
train which drew Into the Exposition
grounds yesterday. In this big shipment
there were 000 animals. While they were
billed from Hamllne. Minn., the animals
represent stockgrowlng districts through
out the entire state of Minnesota, as well
as parts of Nebraska. Iowa. Illinois and
Missouri. This big shipment completes
the entries from outside of Oregon, sev
eral other shipments having come In dur
ing the week. The only other shipments
are of sheep and swine from points noar
Portland. These will come In today, to
morrow and Monday.
An Array of Caretakers.
An army of 200 caretakers Is already- In
the field looking after the stock now quar
tered at the Exposition. A canvas of the
sp'aclous stalls made lastvcvenlng revealed
that there'are now over 1500 animals quar
tered there. There are 500 fine cattle. 2S0
blooded horses and mules. SCO head of
sheep and goats, and 150 head of swine,
About 500 additional animals are to be re
celved from local points. The stock is
quartered In 12 stables, which are ar
ranged In two rows facing each other.
leaving a liberal space between for a
showing place. At one end of the row
Is a large show ring where much of the
Judging will be done. The Judges will
commence their work with the opening
day of the exhibition.
Stockmen from all over the Middle West
are arriving-dally. Pacific Coast growers
are expected In large numbers today and
tomorrow. Having a shorter distance to
come many have not made an early start.
Stockmen Who Are Here.
Among the stockmen to arrive yester
day was Ike Forbes, director of the Amer
lean 'Shorthorn Breeders' Association. Mr.
Forbes has attended all of the. greater
American livestock shows, and he states
that thje. one In Portland Is to bo the
greatest ever held In the west. In Short
horn cattle he states, that the exhibit will
be the greatest ever held In America. J. L.
Smith, a Spokane stockman, was another
arrival who sees In the Lewis and Clark
livestock show one of the greatest ex
hibits of stock ever held.
All yesterday's shipments of stock were
unloaded before nightfall and assigned
to their various stalls. The busiest man
at the Exposition yesterday and last night
was M. D. wisdom, superintendent of
the exhibit, to whom falls the task of
looking after all stock arrivals. No con
fusion of any kind has been encountered.
Fire Insurance Men Meet.
The Special Fire Insurance Agents' As
soclation, of the Pacific Northwest, which
has been meeting In Portland since Mon
day. adjourned at the American Inn yes
terday afternoon. A reception was given
the delegates, about 50 In number, at 1:30
o clock, in the afternoon at the Oregon
State building, after which a business
meeting was held In the parlors of the
American Inn. The officers for the en
suing year will not be elected until De
cember, when a meeting- will be held In
Seattle. Last night the members held a
banquet at the American Inn. The ofll-
cers of the association are: F. J. Alex
Mayer, president; John W. Gunn. vice-
president; T. J. Gerould, secretary.
Leaders of the Party Slighted and
Feel Disposed to Follow the
Standard of the Xebras- ,
kan in the Future.
Gentlemen who had not their legs
under the Folk banquet table Thursday-
night at the American Inn,' were voic
ing their displeasure yesterday. They
were gentlemen whose toes have never
et crossed the threshold of the "400,"
members of the Democratic party and
ot the Missouri Society, who in their
complaint cited that the banquet was
a spiked-tall, open-front, bubble-water
affair, from which the hosts of the
common people were barred. In order
that the elect might monopolize the
initiation of Folk's boom for the Pres
And many patriots were not slow to
declare that Folk, though perhaps a
good man. was not their man for Pres
ident, but that Bryan was. And- the
slight felt by the hosts outside the
banquet hall, did more to boom the
Nebraskan than the banquet had done
to boost the Mlssourlan.
Ranks Not Represented.
The ranks of the Democratic party
were scarcely represented at tne
'feed." To be sure Governor Chamber
lain was there, but they who ran the
function could hardly leave him out.
To be sure also, Alex Sweek, chairman
of the Democratic State Central Com
mittee, was present, but his Invitation
had to be secured for him the last
minute before the banquet, and Alex
had hardly time to get on his spike-tall
and patent leathers. Where was John
B. Ryan, secretary of the State Cen
tral Committee? among the reprobate.
And where was Richard W. Montague,
chairman of the City Ceneral Commit
tee, and John VatZante, of the County
Central committee; and John Lnmont
and L. T. Peory and G. W. Alleb and C.
B. Williams and G. H. Thomas and H.
B. Nicholas and other potentates of
Folk's Democratic party. They were
not present; neither was General Kill
feather nor Pat Powers nor Jim Foley.
Missouri Society Slighted.'
And where were members of the Mis
souri Society, the organization whoso
members are sons of the state which
has lifted up Folk and offers him for
President, the organization which had
been planning for his reception these
many moons? Not two dozen were
True, W. M. Davis, president of tho
society, was there, and Ogelsby Young,
too. But ever so many more were num
bered among the reprobate. T. C. Dev
lin, City Auditor, was not sufficiently
elect to deserve a -seat at the "400"
banquet; nor V. K. Strode, nor J. V.
Beach, nor T, J. Cleeton, nor Dr. F.
Cauthorn, nor Dr. T. L. Eliot, nor Dr.
M. F. Fenton, nor Milton A. Miller, nor
Tom Llnvllle. nor W. T. Mulr. nor
others such as C. K. Zllley, W. B. Bol
ton. J. S. P. Copland, R. L. Darrow. Dr.
H. C. Fenton, J. A. Frakes, Robert W.
Galloway. Dr. S. M. Hamby, H. W. Man
ning. John Lv Minor and R. R. Steele.
Patriots Wag Their Tongues.
All this put the patriots to wagging
their tongues yesterday. It was cited
that tho arrangements were under di
rection of R. H. Kern, chairman of tho
Missouri Commission to the Exposition
and Mrs, J. B. Montgomery and J. Mel.
Wood, who made a very "swell" event
out of It. Members of the Missouri So
ny said that though their organiza
tion hud taken the lend In the plans
entertain Folk, It had been frozen
out and compelled to get out of sight.
A committee headed by H. B. Nicholas,
of the society, had been appointed to
confer with the Missouri Commission
ers, for the banquet, but its members
had not even been Invited.
Therefore, the Democratic braves
were disposed yesterduy to keep Bryan
for their standard-bearer Instead of
taking up with r'olk. Among them
were J. B. Ryan. H. B. Nicholas, Thomas
O'Day, W. T. Vaughn. Oglesby Young
and S. C. A'rmltage. These six were met
yesterday, haphazard. n3 they plied
their daily tasks. Quoth Mr. Ryan:
Xot So Sure of Folk.
"Folk for President? Oh, I don't
know. He's going to be one of those
exploded phenomena by and by. He's
put boodlers In Jail, but that's what
every Democrat ought to do; therefore
Folk has done no more than his duty.
Heney's ahead of him, for he's got a
United States Senator on the way' to
Jail. Folk has got to show me. I'm for
Bryan or Tom Johnson."
H. B. Nicholas had heard Brother
Folk speak and though he had noth
ing against the Mlssourlan, he could
not see that Folk was a particularly
brainy man. Folk might become Pres
ident, but the biggest men of the coun
try seldom won that office. Mr. Nicholas
from the ground up was a Bryan man.
Bryan Their Man.
Thomas O'Day made no bones about
saying that he was for Bryan, "the
greatest man in the Democratic party
and In any party." and Mr. O'Day
wasn't sore over the banquet, either.
Of the same opihion was W. T.
Vaughn, member of the City Council,
and Oglesby Young-, secretary of the
Missouri -Society, and S. C. Armltage,
secretary of the Young Men's Demo
And the only Democrat of seven, who
lifted up his voice In behalf of Folk
was Pat Powers, who declared that hfc
wouldn't have gone to the banquet
even It he had been Invited, "I never
attended a banquet In my life." quoth
he, "except one," and Pat wouldn't tell
when that was.
Crowd3 throng the Mellln's Food booth
in the Agriculture building at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition. Thousands of peo
ple have visited this exhibit, and the
booth Is ailed with interested people ail
day long. Courteous attendants will tell
you all anout tne pictures.
Governor Folk Departs.
Governor Joseph W. Folk, of Missouri,
and the members of his official staff, who
have been In Portland attending the Lewb
and Clark Exposition. left last night for
San Francisco, They return to Missouri
by the way of Denver, after spending sev
eral days In California. Yesterday morn
ing Governor Folk visited the Vancouver
Barracks. He was given a luncheon at
the Commercial Club during the noon
hour. Governor Chamberlain and the
members of his official staff, were among
the guests at the luncheon.
