The followinc concessions were flnan clally successful at the levels and Clark Exposition, and, with the ex ception of possibly one or. two minor concessions, the list Is complete: Trent.

Admin istration Restaurant, Blsmark Itert.au rant and grape Juice concessions Is unknown. Now that the smoke has blown over from the brilliant closing scenes or the Leu is and Clark Exposition, a little more can be learned of the extent of the lOBses' of the concessions at the Fair. The amusement features of the Fair have been as great a failure, as the Exposition itself has been a sue cess. From an official source the in formation has been elicited that the concessions have lost fully $3u0,00D. n.i there are those who place the losses as high as $450,000. J. A. Gor man, . president of the Trail Associa tion, says the Trail alone has lost more than $250,000, out of about a naif million dollars invested. Tired of Amusement Trips. Some people contend that the Trails, the Midways and the Pikes are a tning of the pat, the American people hav ing become tired of them, and that within a few years there will be Expositions with no amusement streets. It is thought by many that the Lewis and Clark Exposition marks the turning point, and that they also will soon be a thing of the past. Oth ers say, however, that there will never be an Exposition without an amuse ment street, and that the Trails and Pikes have their ups and downs like everything else. They say that it is very probable the next large fair held in trie United States wlu witness a suc cessful season for the amusement fea tures. Some say that the vaudeville thea ters ruined the Trail business as far as the Portland people were-concerned, and that the Eastern visitors had near ly all been at St. Louis, where there were larger shows. There are those who say the cool nights killed off the business, and nearly every concession aire at the Exposition has a different theory as to why he did not make a small-sized fortune. ' Failure to Patronize the Shows. The Trail has been visited by plenty of people, situated, as it Is, between the Government Island and the main exhibit buildings, but they could not be enticed or driven Into the shows. All the arts and wiles of the barkers, with a few exceptions, failed to draw the crowds. The thousands of people, passing to and fro from the Govern ment building, would occasionally stop and watch the antics of some frantic spieler, who was making a strenuous effort to draw the crowds In fear that he was slated for the ax unless he did better, but very few of them would stop for more than a few minutes. At night the Trail generally had good crowds, but they did not patronize the various shows as they have done at previous expositions. American Inn's Big Loss. The American Inn, the largest con cession at the Exposition, is also the greatest loser, being fully $150,000 be hind the cost of installation and the operating expenses. There were but very few days at the Fair that the American Inn was anywhere near full. The "$150,000 lost by the American Inn, falls largely upon local stockholders, who before the opening of the Fair, thought they had the pick of the con cessions. The next largest loser is probably the Carnival of Venice, which lost in the neighborhood of $20,039. Igorrotes Get Out Even. The Igorrotes have pulled out about even, but it is not thought that thoy have made any money to speak of. The Igorrote Village was the tar attrac tion of the Trail, and far the last six weeks of the Fair, did more business than any half dozen of the Trail shows. On Portland Day there were more than 8000 paid admissions to the Igorrote Village, and on the closing day there were about naif this many It is estimated that if the Igorrotes had got .here "when the Fair first opened that they would have made fully $50, 000. Princess Trixle and the Diving Elks made more money than any of the very few successful concessions, the profit being estimated at not less than $20,000. The Gay Paree made about -$G000, but all the money George E. Jabour made in this attraction he sunk In the Animal Show, which is away be hind. Tho aeronautic concourse, -which was also thchight to be a sure winner before the Fair opened, is out about $5033. Even Fair Japan lost about $2000. and Klondike Is out at least $8000. The Haunted Castle and the Trip to Venice are behind about $5000, as are the Cas cade Gardens and the Trip to Siberia. The Streets of Cairo lost a little some thing It is understood, and the Temple of Mirth and the Mirror Maze are said to have pulled out about even. The concession of the Truscott Boat, Co. did not make enough clear money to pay for tho shipping of the numerous craft back to the East ITALIAN BAND'S FAREWELL Audience Shows Its Appreciation at Auditorium Concert. Music-lovers of Portland packed and Jammed the Auditorium at the Lewis and Clark . Exposition yesterday afternoon to bid 'farewell to the Ellery Royal Italian Band, .which has made the musical hit of the .Fair. The, huge building was crowded wjth' people until it could hold no more, it Is no exaggeration-to say that fully 300 people were unable to obtain seats or. standing-room In the building. Directly following the rendition of tne first number on the programme, S!g, Pe ru Mo, one of the most popular directors ever in Portland, was presented with a beautiful solid sliver loving-cup. a gift from his many admirers in this city. The presentation was made by Theodore nar dee. assistant to tho president, and was graciously acknowledged by Ferullo, who made a series of grateful bows to tne audience. It could be plainly seen that he was deeply affected by the gift, whlcn voiced appreciation of his efforts to please Slg. Ferullo does not speak Engllsn very fluently, but a -brief addresr was numo by Francois H.. Voitier. assistant man ager, which follows in part: "Willie I am a por apology lor a spcecu maker. SI. Ferullo requests me to ex press ills heartfelt thanks for this hand some token of appreciation and admira tion of himself as an Individual and of the Ellery Royal Italian Band as a mu sical organization. Our short stay here has -been a very pleasant one. and Slg Ferullo feels highly honored that it should torminute so felicitously. Mr. Ferullo also requests me to state that this gift is espe cially acceptable In that It comes from the music-lovers of Portland.' During the entire concert the audience was particularly enthusiastic, and Slg. Ferullo was forced by repeated and coh- "tinued applause to respond with an encore to every number. It was at the close ol the Batiste Organ Offertory, however, that the enthusiasm of the afternoon reached its climax. As the magnificent strains of the offertory came to an end. the audience went wild, cheering, clapping and stamping in a vain effort to express Us appreciation and delight- Several ex tra numbers wore played by request. The audience seemed almost unable to say farewell to Jhe band and its inspired young leader. FAIR A GOOD INVESTMENT Eyes of Eastern llomcscekcrs Di rected to the Northwest. PENDLETON. Or.. Oct, IS. (To the Editor.) I believe that I voice tne sentiment of this community when I say that the people of Oregon are to be congratulated for the success of the Lewis and Clark Fair. While the country is comparatively new, yet the exhibits shown there by tne rortn west States have -awakened the world to the importance of this part of the United States. It is true that the Fair lias taken some money out of the rural districts, but X look for great benefits to come to Oregon in return for this expendi ture. People frorj different parts of tne United States have visited Oregon this year and have become acquainted with the state and the people through thi- Fair, and many of these visitors will return to become residents within a few years. The East is filled to overflowing, and good, substantial peo pie with means to found homes arc looking to the West. Aside from showing the resources of the Northwest, the Fair has been great educational feature. Isolated as tho Northwest is from the great ccn ters of education, manufacturing, art and science, this Fair brought all those great branches of civilization to the vory doors of the people of the North west- This feature of the Fair Is alone worth all the money that the Fair has cost Oregon. Whatever we get of " value costs money, and I feel that Orogon and the Northwest States have made a good Investment' in the Lewis and Clark Fair. It will yield; returns to this seotlon of the United States for years to come, in permanent, progressive. home-hungry settlers, who became ac qualntcd with the Northwest through the medium of aho Fair. W. F, MATLOCK. Mayor of Pendleton, Or. OREGON HAS JMADE GOOD Bounteous Harvest to Follow From the Seed Sown. DALLAS. Or.. October 12. (To the Editor.) It Is with the greatest pleas ure that I congratulate tho manage ment of the Lewis and Clark Exposi tion and the people of the entire Pa cific Northwest on the happy inaugura tion and the successful conclusion of the Exposition. The Fair has been and will be of great benefit not only to Portland and the people of Oregon, but to the entire Coast, by calling attontlon-to our vast undeveloped rcsouroos and our de lightful climate. For the last four and one-half months the eyes of the whole country have been upon us, and I Believe we can truthfully say we have "made good." The seed has been sown and a bounteous harvest will -surely follow. Congratulations arc especially due to the president and the other officers of the Exposition, who have given us such a splendid Fair, and who have by their caroful and economical man agement shunned the shoals of flnan ciai embarrassment which has been the lot of so many former Expositions of this character.

My Idea would be, and I am sure our firm agreed with me. to erect a handsome building on some proper site for per manent exposition purposes, wherein an annual Autumn fair or exposition could be held. The-money in question could be made the nucleus of a larger fund to be expended for this purpose which the merchants, manufacturers and other business men of the com munity should raise. The building should be large, substantial and a structure of which everyone would be proud and which, could stand as a memorial or monument of our first success the Lewis and Clark Centen- ial Exposition. For Fall Expositions. In the part of this building used for exposition purposes there should be a fine showing -unade every Fall by farmers, manufacturers and mer chants. It would bring the people of the Northwest to Portland every year give them some place to come, and our people a reason for staying at home during that season. The city would be greatly benefited by the in flux of visitors and the entire North west would be widely advertised and benefited through such a medium. "The building for this purpose could FAVORS r.UK SITU YOK PARK. PORTLAND. Oct. 12. (To the Edl tor.) The citizens of Portland were much gratified when President Goode, of the Lewis and Clark Fair, informed them on Portland day that there would b. a profit of from 25 to -10 per cent on the capital stock of $400,000, whloh, If 25 per cent, would mean 100,000 net rain. Portland la eadly in need of public parks. Every one of . aa aleo the thousands of Eastern people who have visited our city during the- paat year, were delichted with the beautiful site ttc Fair occupied. What more beau tirul elte for a City Park than, thl with Guilds' Lake as a center, the Peninsula heavily planted with trees, wc would have a perpetual beauty ground. There would be no walks or drives to bulk!, for they are all there. The grand stairway, the rteps at least, are "built of cement, and will last for ever. The ornamental work can be re built with cement. The Forestry build ing and Its site is already a part of this project. With Portland Heights boulevard, then through tho Lewis and Clark Park our wants for a drive would be achieved. It would Indeed be too bad to ee one blade of frafs or any part of the beautiful nowcr garden! and the natural forertn there destroyed. It simply cannot be. Therefore, as the stockholders of the Fair when they subscribed the $400, 000 did not wish any 'return. In fact, could hardly have expected any. It would be a good plan to donate the profits of the Fair to buy the land that Is now comprised la the Iywls and Clark ground and pretwst the same to the Park Com ml ml oner. It It requires more money than this sum, which It probably will, then raise the balance by subscriptions or in .some other way. In order to start this movement, I herewith Inclose my Lewis and Clark iock amounting to $100, Indorsed to the order of The Oregonian Publishing Company for the above purpose, and shall be pleased to have you collect and take care of subscriptions, for I am sure my appeal will meet with a hearty response. Yours very truly. HARVEY O'BRYAX. be made as handsome as the people of Portland are willing to pay for. The estimate of $180,000 will hardly be reachod after all the expenses are paid, but' the amount -will be a sub stantial one and an encouraging foun dation for a popular public subscrip tion. My firm would willingly do Its share toward such a proposition and we would only be too glad to see some such idea take root in the minds of Jhe people;" Give to Smithsonian Institution Julius Meier, of this firm, docs not express himself in' rogard to the dls posal of the surplus Exposition fund, but does say in regard to the disposi tion of the Forestry building that he greatly, favors the suggestion made by J. C Stubbs, of the Harrlman system. that this beautiful building be placed near the Smithsonian Institution at Washington. D. C "While we all naturally vra 'to have this beautiful structure here, "I think it would do Portland more good there, for it would prove a wonderful medium through which to tell the country of our Northwest. There Is no city in the United States, where sight-seeing is done on sucn an ex tensive scale and where It would be viewed by as many people as there. It would always stand a monument to Oregon and the Northwest and make Americans roalize the importance of this section of their country. Congress Might Act. "The means of moving it? Well. have not thought much about tho6c de tails. It might be that Congross would be moved to make an appropriation for the purpose, and it is reasonable to be lieve that the railroads would furnish the transportation. To havo it set up after it arrived there would naturally fall upon Oregon, but it could well af ford to go to that expense." Llpman. Wolfe &. Co. are liberal stock holders In tho Exposition fund. Adolphc Wolfe was interviewed regarding the ex penditurc of the surplus for public pur poses, and gave his personal opinion, stat ing that he was not at liberty to speak for the firm without consulting the -other members. Some Purpose of Public Benefit. "Personally. 1 am In favor of expending this money for any worthy purpose.whlch will be of general public benefit," he said. Formerly I was much in favor of pu ohasing the Exposition grounds for a pub lie park, but I am now advised that there arc reasons why they would not be as useful Tor that purpose as other locations. The erection of some, kind of a building- say, for Instance, an art gallery or museum, or even a historical building wnicn wouia meet general public ap proval, and which would be for general public benefit or good. But I am not In favor of this expenditure for the benefit of any particular society or organization of any character. It should be for the Oregon public at large." Monument, to Exposition. H. C. Wortman. of Olds, Wortman & King, says that, as far as he is concerned Individually, he would be more than will ing (o contribute his share of the dividend to a suitable monument of the great Ex position Just ended. will nave to speak individually,'' he said, "for our firm Is a corporation, and its members would have to be consulted on such a proposition' collectively. But, speaking personally, I would favor such a proposition as The Oregonian makes. To commemorate the Lewis and Clark Centennial with some appropriate monu ment or memorial would be a splendid way to invest the money which the Expo sition has made, and it would not only bo an addition to our city's beauty, but would show the world that we are made , of the right kind of stuff. Just what form the memorial-should assume I will not venture to suggest, but that is a mat ter easily decided If the stockholders agree to expend their money in this man ner." , Likes the Park Idea. W. P. Olds, another member of. the firm, expressed himself as Individually In favor of expending the fund In the purchase of the grounds for parking purposes. "I have not studied any other proposition." he said, "and would not care to give aa off -hand, opinion, but the idea of making a park of those grounds has been dis cussed very generally . this Summer, and it strikes me as being advisable. Of course. I cannot speak for my firm or pledge it to anything, but I am sure It j would not hold back in any movement which was, for the general welfare of tho. city and the public" Would Pay the Stockholders. Henry Reed, secretary of the Lewis and Clark Commission, says he is "dead against anything but paying the money back to the stockholders." Mr. Reed was the first to take this pronounced attitude, but his reasons are tangible. He said: "Tne very best advertisement the City of Portland could get the very best use which .could possibly be made of that money Is to pay It back to the men who subscribed the stock. They should be paid as large a percentage of the money they Invested as possible. It would have a good effect on Portland and the whole country-" H. C. Bowers, of the Portland Hotel, also has some pronounced views concern ing the disposition of tho fund. He thinks that the stockholders have already erected a monument to the city by giving the 70 por cent wnich they wilt not get back to the success of the Exposition. "Personally I would favor the Idea of investing the fund in a park, for a city cannot have too many parks." he re marked, "but the Idea of building a memo rial or monument does not appeal to me at all. If the stockholders get CO per cent of their money back, the other TO per cent is surely enough of a monument, isn't It? It made the Exposition the success it has proven, and I think that is enough to ask of them. It has served to bring Portland to the front and advertise It throughout the land, and it doesn't seem fair to ask any more of the men who put the money up to accomplish this, does it?" Xot Decided., ns to "What Is Best. Jacob Kamm holds stock to theextcnt of $2000. but would not say what he would be willing to do until he had looked Into the matter thoroughly. He did not seem to be deeply impressed with the idea of erecting a building of any kind, and said ne could not give an expression concern ing the purchase of the Exposition grounds for park purposes without looking Into the value of the land and knowing what price is set upon it. Henry Hahn. of the firm of Wadhams & Co.. thinks his firm would have to see some very good object behind such an ex penditure before it would enter Into an agreement of any kind concerning th expenditure of the fund In question, but no declined to talk for the firm. "I will say for myself that parks are always de slrabU, and every city wants them, but it occurs to me that Portland has more parks now than she can beautify. How ever, I have not given any though to the disposal of this money and am therefore not ready to express any views.' The members of Fleischner. Mayer & Co. could not be reached last hlght, but as this firm Is always one of the first to come forward In any move concerning the cood of Portland, it Is reasonable to suppose mat it would enter Into the spirit of any proposition which the majority of stock- Holders might agree upon. xam wessinger, representing the Weinhard estate, which contrihnt.i TERSE CHRONOLOGY OF PORTLAND EXPOSITION President Thomas Jefferson proposes expedition to Pacific Coast to George Rogers Clark Dee. 4. 17S3 Thomas Jefferson sends secret message to Congress respecting West Coast exploration Jan.

Personally, I shall consider it a privilege and honor to be permitted to contribute my share of tha surplus, either to the purchase of a park, erection of a suitable memorial building, or what may possibly be best, to the erect ing of a colossal triumphal group com memorating the Lewis and Clark expedl tIon evcnt ThIs latter plan if adopted. and with 5120,000 to expend, would produce something that would assist in ornament ing our city more than anything else we could do in any other direction.

NEW METHODIST HYMNAL RECEIVES THE SANCTION OF . BOTH BODIES. Methodist Church and Methodist Church South Indorse It Through Their Bishops. A meeting will be held in the Grace Methodist Episcopal Church this morning at 10:30 to consider the advisability of the adoption of a common hymnal by the dif ferent Methodist Churches of Portland. Choirs from the several churches and representatives from the clergy and lay members will be in attendance and try se lections from the book that has been sug cested which Is called "The Methodist Hymnal." This book ig one lately compiled oy a body In which equal representation was given to the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Methodist Episcopal unurcn. South. Several months were spent in re viewing the volumes of sucred music and an attempt was made to select hymns most In harmony with the doctrines or Methodism. Both old and modern airs are Included In the selections made, only the best from all periods being taken. The book has received the indorsement of the bishop? of both Methodist organi zations. It has quickly come Into favor and over 500.000 have already been sold. Grace Church has Just begun using this book. DOES MAYOR HOLD OVER? Question Affecting the December Election In Milwaukic. A legal question has come up as to whether Mayor William Schlndler, of Mllwaukle. will hold over for an other year, under the provisions of the new charter, or whether at tho Dcember election a successor will be elected. The question also affects two of the Councllmen. Mayor Schlndler was elected under the old charter for one year, as Avere all the Councllmen, but the charter was amended in sever al particulars and these amendments extend the term of the Mayor from one to two years, and also that of the Councllmen. If these amendments ap ply to the incumbents, Mayor Schlnd ler will continue in office another yoar, apd two of the present Council men also will remain. At Milwaukic. there is difference of opinion, some holding that the Mayor and all present city officers were elect ed to office under the old charter for one vear. and that the amendments ex tending the terms to two years do not apply to Incumbents, but Mayor Schln dler and his friends think the amend ments apply to present officers. The annual election takes place the first Monday In December, and the question will have to be settled one way before that time. Printers on Sympathetic Strike. ST. PETERSBURG. -Oct. 15.

WITH BfilLLliT SOCIAL FUNCTION Fitting Testimonial to Those Who Made the Fair a Success. BANQUET ON . LAST DAY Given in Honor of II. W Goode in the Xew York Building, at Which the Best of Good Fellowship Is Shown. There have probably been more brilliant banquets at the Lewis and Clark Exposi tion this Summer than all the others giv en in Portland for several score of years. As all expositions are hosts to more or less noted men. a great deal of attention, necessarily, has to be paid to entertain ing and the meeting of social obligations. Notable among the many social events at the Exposition are the banquets given In honor of Vice-President Fairbanks, and the Congressional representation, on tne opening day, and the E. H. Harrlman, Governor Folk and the J. J. Hill ban quets. Closing Social Function. No less fitting than the grand ceiebra tion of the closing day was the ending of the social functions of the Exposition late Saturday night, when the directors of the Fair gave the -banquet in the New Tork building in honor of President H. W. Goode. This was the culmination of all the banquets and social affairs of the Ex position, and while not so large as some of the others given, it was the most bril liant and the most interesting of them all. Particular significance was attached to the Goode banquet, as it was purely an Exposition affair, and an assemblage of nearly all of the men who have made the Fair the success that It Is. Practically all of those present were or had been con nected with the Fair, and who had gath ered together probably for the last time to honor President Goode and to contem plate and discuss the remarkable achieve ment of Portland, Oregon and the whole Northwest in organizing, building and holding of a Western World's Fair. Touch of Pathos at Close. However there was a touch of pathos to the holding of the banquet. Inasmuch as the late Henry W. Corbett. the first pres ident of the Fair, to whom rightly be longs the title of the"'Father of the Ex position," was among the missing mem bers. As President Goode and H. W. Scott, the second chief executive of the Fair, were there to be honored for the great part they had played in the making of the Exposition, the absence of Henry W. Corbett, the man to whom so much is due, was all the more Impressive. There were about 40 guests present. The tables were arranged in rectangular form. with an opening on one of tho longer sides. Opposite the opening and In the center sat the guest of honor. President H. W. Goode, and on either side of him were seated Governor Chamberlain and Mayor Lane. Theodore B. Wilcox pre sided as master of ceremonies, and opened the literary programme of the evening with a few well-chosen remarks, in which he spoke of the great benefits that would flow to all parts of the orthwest from the holding of the Lewis and Clark Expo sition. Governor Chamberlain's Address. He then introduced Governor Cham berlain, who made a very neat address on the Exposition, saying that the people of the Northwest would always have rea son to congratulate themselves upon the building of the Fair. He also referred to the loyalty to the enterprise as displayed not only by Portland and Oregon, but by the whole of the Pacific Coast States. "Nobody appreciates more than I the immense benefits which must be reaped by this state as the result of the Lewis and Clark Exposition." said CSovernor Chamberlain. "They are talking of us now all over the country and in foreign lands. The Fair has been a remarkable and unprecedented success, and the re sults show for themselves. It represents the momentous era in the history of the Pacific Coast." Talk by Mayor Lane. Mayor Lane was the next speaker, and delivered a very appropriate address.

He also spoke of the grandeur of the Exposition and predicted a glorious future for Portland and the rest of the state. H. W. Scott Reviews Exposition. H. W. .Scott was introduced by Toast- master Wilcox and delivered a highly in teresting address, which was pregnant with opportune remarks concerning the Exposition, taking It from Its very Inclp lency until the closing day. Mr. Scott was given an enthusiastic reception when he arose to speak, and at frequent Inter vals during his remarks was Interrupted by applause In recognition of some par licularly pointed and appropriate state ment of Interest. Mr. Scott's speech was more of a review of the Fair than an oration. He started at the very beginning of the Fair, giving Lewis B. Cox the credit for being he first man to suggest a celebration to commemorate the Lewiw and Clark oxpe dltion to the Northwest country. In eu logistic term? he told of the great part played by the late Henry w. C'oroett, when the Exposition was nothing more than a momentous question which was being considered by a rather timid and fearsome people. He said more credit was due Corbett for the holding of the Expo sition than any one man, or set of men. He told how Corbett insisted upon holding the Exposition when the others were doubting its feasibility and commented upon hlg coming to the front to subgtan tiate his views by subscribing for $30,000 worth of stock? Hard Fight Before Congress. Mr. Scott, to whom le directly due the credit for securing the desired recognl tion and aid for the Lewis and Clark Ex position from the Government, told of the hard fight that ensued when the bill for the Congressional appropriation passed the two houses of the National body. Mr. Scott refused to take any credit for him fttlf. although without him it Is doubtful If the Government would have partlclpat ed to any great extent, or for that mat ter, have taken part at all. Mr. Scott fol lowed the progress of the Exposition until the present time, being aroused to an en thusiastic pitch in telling of tho success that had been attained by the Fair. He also commented on the neighborly feeling that had been established between Port land and her sister cities by the united and whole-souled movement which made the Fair a success. He told why his duties prevented him from continuing aa president when the work of organization was well under way. and the great services that had been ren dered by his successor. President H. W. Goode. In bringing the Fair to a success ful and glorious Issue.
