Millions of roses, hundreds of miles of
bright hunting, tons of serpentine, myr
iad rings and banners, scores of novel
ties, big dally parades and special fea
tures are all doing their full share to
make the reign of roses an "eventful week
In the history of Portland.
Rut the keynote of success, the feature
which is giving the annual festival Its
unparalleled success Is the responsive
enthusiasm of the people. This spirit of
loyal support lias been manifest from
the fit st, and with the succeeding days
nf the celebration there has been no fall
ing away of loyalty. Rather It has been
Out until well Into the night for the
"Spirit of the Golden West" parade, the
populace was astir again bright and early
yesterday morning for the decorated autot
procession. The attendance, was nearly
as great as at the Illuminated parau.
and It Is conservatively estimated that
there were 61,000 people on the streets
at 10:15 o'clock in the morning, when
the column moved.
How Crowds Spent the Day.
And again last night the same great
enthusiastic, loyal multitude flocked to
the river to see the Venetian water car
nival and procession of Illuminated water
craft. The intervals between those two
big events of the day were spent in walk
ing about the street throwing serpentine
and confetti or in viewing for the last
time the marvelously beautiful rose ex
position at the Oriental building. Twenty-five
thousand people gave up their
entire day to the Rose Festival. Fifty
thousand additional visited one or both
the procession features.
Today's programme Is the most elabor
ate yet held. This forenoon will be given
up to the big floral procession and at
tendant battle of roses. The afternoon
will be devoted to the big automobile
racing events. It is believed more than
100.000 people from Portland and Mult
nomah County will view the racing
events from one part or other of the 14
mile course. At night the - East Side
will have the center of the stage with
the children's parade on Grand avenue
and the masque street carnival follow
ing the parade.
Auto Parade Two Miles Long.
Both the auto parade and the water
carnival of last night were momentous
entertainment events. The auto pro
cession was nearly two miles in length,
and there were many fine features in
:he column. The parade moved prompt
ly at 10:15, and passed over the line
of procession at a speed of 10 miles
an hour. Decorations were mainly In
roses, although many other plants and
rrcens were used to good advantage.
Scotch broom was used effectively on
Machines of every variety appeared
!n the column, and the number of
mtns In use in Portland, as developed
ay the parade, was a surprise. There
was most every kind of auto, from the
all but obsolete machine of a few years
ago, to the spick and span car of the
present year. Not a few were com
pletely bedded In roses and bright
bunting! Art In decorative effect was
achieved by no less than 25 of the
participants. The car that attracted
most attention was Miss Izetta Jewel's,
which was banked in roses and sur
mounted by two Teddy bears, engaged
in tossing roses to the crowds. Occu
pants of several autos showered the
crowd with roses. '
V. C. T. V. Entry Applauded. '
On one auto 20,000 pink roses were,
used. This was entered by the W. C.
T. U., and committees from that organ
ization planned and effected the dec
oration of a big touring car with their
own hands. Eight young women
gowned in white rode in the .auto,
which was applauded all along the line.
On both sides of the river, the pro
cession was viewed by the thousands of
people who turned out. The procession
swept gracefully across the Morrison
street bridge, passed through the East
Side business center and returned over

Animal Hears In Crossing Creek and
Falls With President Beside Him
Xo Harm Is Done.
WASHINGTON. June 3. While fording
a stream in Rock Creek Park yesterday
afternoon. President Roosevelt was
thrown from his horse Into about two
feet of water and was In danger of1 Injury
from the fallen animal's hoofs, but es
caped without suffering any further than
a good ducking.
The President was riding on a new
horse and in ascending 4he bank after
crossing the creek the animal reared.
The President leaned forward and slack
ened the reins, thereby avoiding pulling
the horse over backwards. On reaching
the top of the bank, the horse reared
again and stood up straight on his hind
legs. Although -ar. Roosevelt leaned for
ward, the horse went over backwards Into
the rocky bed of the creek.
Mr. Roosevelt escaped being caught
under the horse In its fall by slipping
from the saddle. He fell In the stream
beside the animal - and, to avoid being
struck by its feet in its struggle, got out
of the way quickly. The horse turned
over in the opposite direction -from him
and was quickly recaptured. The PresI
dent remounted and rode for an hour and
a half before returning to the White
Mrs. Roosevelt was with her husband.
Occupants of several carriages which had
crossed the creek ahead of him spread
rumors of serious injury, which were

as some of the County Clerks are always
slow in sending in returns. Most of the
amendments and initiative measures
have no immediate effect, however.
though they will be In full force as
soon as the proclamation has been issued.
Recall Effective at Once.
The recall amendment' Is .self-execu
tory and will be effective at once. It
provides that "25 per cent of the voters
of an election district may compel an
officer to -stand for re-election at a
special election to be held within 20 days
for which election other candidates may
be nominated. The reasons for the re
call and the defense of the officer may
be printed upon the sample ballots in not
to exceed 200 words each. No provision
Is made as to the manner in which nom
inations shall be made for the special
election. Recall petitions cannot be filed
until an officer has occupied his position
six months, or, in the case of a member
of the Legislature, until the Legislature
has been in session five days.

More Chances for Minority.
The proportional representation amend
ment merely authorizes the Legislature
to provide a system of election by which
minorities shall be assured of represent
ation in all -offices to which two or more
persons are to be elected. The amend

which this shall be accomplished, but
leaves the Legislature to adopt any one
of a number of plans . of atttainlng it.
The amendment authorizes the Legisla
ture to enact laws permitting the voter
to express his second and third choice
or laws requiring that the pej-son elect
ed shall receive a majority of the votes
cast for the candidates for the office.
As this measure increases the opportuni
ties of minority parties and as the direct
primary tends to loosen party ties, there
is strong 'probability that the two to

curing more representation than that to
which they would be entitled upon their
actual party strength.

Final Figures Will Be

SEVENTEEN COUNTIES FINISH
Nearly All Show Steady Gains
for the Democrat.
CAKE GETS MARION BY 11
Malheur Comes In With Double Its
Former Estimate Lake, Too,
Goes for the Governor.
Governor Chamberlain's plurality over
Cake, for United States Senator will be
about 1700. He now has 1546. Complete
returns from a large number of counties,
received by The Oregonian yesterday, in
crease previous estimates. For example,
Malheur, which had previously been in
the Chamberlain column by 100, nearly
doubles that plurality by giving him 196,
with five small precincts still to hear
from. Cake's previous lead of 18 In Ben
ton County Is cut down to eight, while
in Clatsop the full vote raises the Demo
crat's plurality from 300 to 357. Crook
County, too, with nearly all votes
counted, gives Chamberlain a lead of
224 over his competitor. The Oregonian
last night received the lull vote of Doug
las, showing that each Senatorial candi
date has 1890 votes. Effort was made to
verify these figures, but the office at
Roseburg had been closed. If this is
correct. It shows a slight loss to the
Democratic candidate. Gilliam County
comes In with only 20 for the Republican
nominee, while Lake, hitherto in dispute,
adds 70 to the Chamberlain column. Lane
County, however, as the country precincts
are heard from, continues to add to the
Cake figures. In Wallowa County, with 11
out of 20 precincts. Cake has a lead of
113 which will probably reach 200. Marie,
with every vote, counted, shows Just 11
for Cake, while Multnomah, with the
count complete and a total of more than
25.000- for the two candidates, shows Just
991 for the Governor.
Mr.- Cake has carried 19 counties and
Mr. Chamberlain 13, counting Douglas a
tie. The state at large, outside of Mult
nomah, on the vote ao far at hand
has given Chamberlain a plurality of
652. Seventeen counties out of 33 are
complete and most of the others are
practically complete. It Is not probable
that the final returns will make a dif
ference of more than 100 votes in Gov
ernor Chamberlain'a plurality one way
or the other.

of Tioga Lodge, the Piatt Summer

other smaller pieces of property which

SCOUTS THE GOLDEN RULE
Shtppy's Theory: "Do Others Before
They Do You."
DETROIT, June 3. Today's features
of the convention of the International
Association of Police Chiefs were an
extemporaneous talk at the morning
session -by Chief Shlppy, of Chicago,
who scouted the golden rule theory of
dealing with offenders, and a revlew
of the Detroit police this afternoon.
"There might have been a time in
Chicago when the golden rule was fol
lowed by the police, but the new rule
Is: 'Do others before they do you.' "This
later rule." he said, "worked very well
when I was attacked recently in my
own home by a supposed anarchist."

the hotel registers all over the city, for
the buyers from out-of-town firms have

this is at one hotel, where from a sin

are staying. In former years 15 buyers
from the larger houses in the West
were usually the limit to be sent here
at one time, and In a Presidential year
the number was much less, as a rule.
