Interest continues unabated in the Lewis
and Clark stock exhibition and yesterday
dcvoloped another surprlso in the matter
of attendance. There wore more people at
the show during the day than on Wednes
day, the total attendance being: estimated
at 17,000. Street-cars and boats were filled
en every trip leading toward the show
grounds. People loitor for hours in barns admir
ing tbe magnlflclent dumb creatures who
leek smart enough to speak. They do not
come for a "brief space llkettbe crowds at
a pantomime. They are there all day.
The trail leading to the show was a
living thread of human beings through all
of yesterday and they were all going one
direction up to the hour for closing or for
supper. Boats filled to their capacity
transported people, too indolent or too
busy to walk, from the Fair to the stock
shew but the same boats returned empty
until well along toward evening. Every
class and condition of persons were rep
resented in the gathering.
Progress "With Awards.
Considerable progress was made in the
making of awards. Fewer animals, how
ever, wore judged than upon the previous
iay, for a number of herds were brought
out for inspection and it takes more time
to complete this work. "While the Judges
were at work their movements were fol
lowed with the keenest interest by a
crowded grandstand. The placing of rib
bons on some fine animal would occasion
ally bring forth a lively round of applause.
Stockmen continue enthusiastic ov,er the
exhibition, declaring" it surpasses their
fondest expectations. Veterans of the
various exhibitions of the past decade
say it compares well with the greatest
shows of the country and is far ahead of
any stock exhibition ever held in the
WosL The success of the show is bring
ing In stockmen on every train who would
not have troubled themselves to visit a
Will Continue Making: Awards.
The various judges will continue their
work today. Much of today's awarding
in cattle will be In herds. Champions and
grand champions will be selected in the
various breods of horses. Accordingly
more than usual interest centers in the
proceedings. The Judges will commence
their work this morning at 10 o'clock and
continue with It through the day. with a
briof interval for luncheon.
As on the first day of the judging, Ore
gon ,zncn shared conspicuously in the list

CATTLE JUDGING IS .FINISHED
Frakes' Great Victory in Holstein Class Large Herds Carry
Off Prizes in Shorthorns Stock Show Merits High Praise.
THERE was not such a crowd yester
day to see the finale of the cattle
Judging. But the grou of families
dealt with were full of interest. The fam
ily likenesses came out very strongly, and
also In some cases a family was penal
ized by some weak member. After tho
judging was concluded, so far as the
Shorthorns waS concerned, one of the
judges made a pleasant little speech of
acknowledgment to exhibitors and their
herdmen for uniform courtesy and compli
ance with requests. The heart response
showed that, although there might be
soreness here and there when some favor
ite had not carried off the blue ribbon, yet
there was no serious dissatisfaction with
the awards. Going round the stalls after
wards and taking count of the prizewin
ners and their neighbors less fortunato-.
one deduction was plain.
In raising thoroughbred stock of all
classes it is only the best that pay?, and
then only when It is made a business.
Hardly oyer is there a solitary prizewin
ner. The" ribbons go to the laxxe exhibits.
So there Is small temptation for any but
wealthy people to enter the lists. Then
does it not pay to raise thoroughbreds?
Unquestionably it does, for excellence In
blood stands for results in pocket. There
fore the sale, of which announcement is
made, to take place today, in the show
ring, should be taken fullest advantage
of to disperse these blooded animals far
To everj' rule there are exceptions.

the celebrated herd of John B. Irwin, of
Minneapolis (who carried off the first
honors at St. Louis), is such an exception.
Chatting with Mr. Frakes, of Scappoose,
Oregon, who is tho IucKy man in question,
I found one who. for 17 years, had been
following his ideal In Holstein cattle, not
with an eye to the show ring and blue
ribbons, hut because the more highly-bred
the animal the more money came back
to the owner through the milk-pall. The
champion cow was not only a beajity to
look at, but a most profitable Investment
for the dally work of the dairy. Her
proud owner pointed out tho contribution
of every item in the animals frame and
constitution, of the gentleness of charac
ter, of the sturdinesa and good health
which demanded no extrrt care or excep
tional feed, to the one great end of fill
ing the pall, not with the milk of early
day, thin and poor, but with the rich
butter-making, cream-yielding milk which
that cow produces in such abundance.
Such a talk to a ckvs of students", with
the Illustration of success and the means
that achieved It, would have gone home to
many a one. But it would have had to be
enforced by knowledge of the years of
hard work, perseverance and far-sightedness
which culminated in that row of
Holstein cattle of all ages, with 13 prizes
out of 14 exhibits.
Large Herds Score Too. '
But in the three great classes of Short
horns, HerefoTds and Jerseys, the honors
fall to the large herds, and to exhibitors
whoae eye Is ever directed to Judges'
awards and ribbons and prizes. Two of

Is a great gathering from many states,
and collected from great distances. The

people knew what they were doing when
they brought their stock so far. for they

Misfortune seems to follow close at the

fered a loss last night about 6:30 o'clock of

moving picture machine became Ignited
from a spark, and In a few seconds were
totally destroyed. The flames spread to

"A hundred thousand for Portland day5'
the popular slogan at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition, is rapidly affecting all classes
of people ln the city and throughout tho
state. The 100,000 attendance for Portland
day Is not the exaggerated prediction of
some over-zealous Exposition official, but
Is ba33d on conservative estimates that
tho admissions will reach this figure pro

and will surpass all other celebrations.

posed participation of the other cities has
been heartily approved. Several of the
cities are already making arrangements
to construct floats for this occasion. Be
sides the many floats and bands, several
military bodies will march in the parade.
Cut Out the "Dead-Heads."
The free admissions will be reduced to
minimum on Portland day. In order to
swell the cash receipts and make a cred
itable showing, practically all the people
employed at the Exposition will purchase
admission tickets. This has been done at
all other expositions when the home city
had its special day, and there wiM be but
very few of the pass holders who will re
fuse to purchase tickets. Commissioners
J. A. Filcher and Frank Wiggins have an
nounced their intention of purchasing
tickets of admission for all of the attend
ants of the California building on that
day. It is thought all other state com
missions will do the same.
The wholesale grocers of Portland have
passed a resolution which, states their
belief that September 30 should be a mem
orable one ln the affairs of the Exposi
tion, and that a. sense of civic pride
should induce every citizen, not only of
Portland, but of the whole State of Ore
gon, to Join ln the celebration. Tho
wholesale grocers who have sent word
to the Exposition management that they
will be closed the whole of Portland day
are Allen & Lewis. Wadhams & Co..
Wadhams & Kerr Bros., Mason, Ehrman
& Co. and Lang & Co.
C03IMERCLAL CLUB IS BOOSTING
Will Do All ln Its Power for Suc
cess of Portland. Day.
This forenoon at 11:30 o'clock, a meet
ing will be held at the Portland Com
mercial Club, of a special committee of ten
nTembers, appointed by President H. M.
Cake, to deise ways and means by which
enthusiastic observance of Portland day
by people of the city, as well as the
throng of visitors assured by favorablo
railroad rates to make it not only an occa
sion memorable in the hiBtory of the Ex
position but a record-breaking event that
will serve as an example of the loyalty
and patriotism of the people to their great
achievement of the most beautiful Exposi
tion of the country.
"In view of the fact that railroad rates
permit outside people to come to the city
the day before and remain several days
after September 30," said President Cake,
"it Is our hope that an understanding may
be arrived at whereby merchants who
have already decided to keep their places
of business open on that day will recon
sider and close to allow employes to spend
the day at the Exposition. It will be of
tremendous value to -Portland if the re
port goe3 broadcast on that night that
100,000 or 110,000 people, passed through
the turnstiles of the Lewis and Clark
Exposition Portland day. All the popula
tion of the town should be harmonized
to make the occasion memorable and since
the Exposition is a public Institution our
interests are all equal in making It suc
cessful. It Is a duty to show the right
spirit of patriotism to the large number of
outside visitors who will bo guests of the
city a week from Saturday."

the Commercial Club are: Henry E. Mc
