which the big fair is composed. The
last seat in the amphitheater, where the
opening exercise will take place, was
finished at 3 o'clock in the afternoon,
and tilth the driving of the last nail
the outside work on the exhibition was
practically done. .ter that the real
work was Inside.
Apples in Oregon Building.
The Oregon building, first of all the
structures to be completed, was a scene
of the utmost tffort all day, and when
the doors are thrown open tomorrow
visitors there will see practically a
complete exhibit. Confronting them
immediately inside the door will be a
pyramid- of Oregon apples towering
over 20 feet high, and surmounted with
a huge papier-mache apple some three
feet in diameter.
The apples used in this pyramid were
taken out of the cold storage plant in the
basement late tonight. where they
formed a part of ' a shipment of 30,000
boxes of prime fruit which will be used
during the fair to keep the exhibit al
At the same time that the busy work
men are piling the apples on the wood
and wire framework of the pyramid, two
express packages of Oregon roses ar
rived, and these were put In cut-glass
Jars and distributed over the building.
After the great hall and the smaller
rooms bad been lavishly decorated in this
manner It was found that many roses
still remained, and the balance was sent
to the other state buildings as a greeting
from Oregon. The practical demonstra
tion that real roses were blooming in
Portland In such numbers as to make
the huge snlpment possible surprised
n-.any Seattleites who had heretofore
given credence to the ancient "Califor
nia rose" fake.
Oregon Roses Are Feature.
Oregon roses are going to play an im
portant part in Oregon's exhibit at the
fair. Arrangements have been made for
large shipments at frequent intervals,
and when the editors hold their conven
tion at the fair later In the Summer,
each one is to be given an Oregon "bud"
as he visits the building. And inci
dentally speaking of Oregon floriculture.
Commissioner Wehrung has another Ore
Ron Innovation at the fair the grounds
of the Oregon building are decorated with
plots of brilliant-leaved Oregon grape, a
jj:a.ni inai tenas itseir most beautifully
to landscaping, though Mr. Wehrung is
apparently the first to discover it.
Commissioner "Wehrung was a busy
man this morning, but while superintend
ing the arrangement of the Oregon views
in the lecture hall, he found time to say
a few words about the fair and Oregon's
part In It.
"Everything possible In our building,"
he said, "has been brought from Oregon.
The building Itself Is a vast Oregon ex
hibit, from the- Oregon timbers in the
rafters and cases down to the superb
piece of myrtle wood from Coos Bay,
us-ed In the panel over the fireplace in
the reception hall. I think our grain
Beed picture in the dome Is about as fine
a piece of work as you will be able to
discover, and we are all justly proud of
it. Furthermore, we are ready for the
opening, with the exception of one OT
two minor exhibits. In fact, we are
even better off in that respect here than
we were at the Lewis and Clark Fair.
And. thank goodness, the peanut' stands
are all gone. too. I've had about all the
fighting I've wanted up here, and I'm
ready now to just lay back and tell peo
ple about Oregon."
Salmon Hatchery Interests.
v0lV? f the moat striking exhibits at
the Oregon building was in full blast
today, the open salmon hatchery.
Thousands of eggs of the famous Co
lumbia River fish were put in water
some weeks ago and now salmon may
be seen in all stages of development,
rrom still newer eggs, through the fry
stage, and up to the full grown king
of river fish that lies statuesquellv In
the aquarium. The aquarium feature
Is a novelty In itself, and will surely
attract attention, taking up as it does,
all of one end of the Beaver state
th.er "n,n,t of speciRl mention
which will attract attention on open
ing day are the eight columns of
grain that support the pictorial dome,
the heaver." which Is truly a wonder
ous beast, and the companion of the
three-foot apple on top of the pyra
mid and a giant sheep, some 14 feet
high, that stands quietly to the left
of the doorway and proclaims Oregon
as a great woolgrowlng state.
Outside of the fair grounds. Seattle
is doing Its best to demonstrate Its read
iness of the exhibition. The streets are
lavishly decorated with flags, bunting
and flowers and the streetcars are run
ning on crowd schedules. Last Sun
day S0.000 people visited the grounds
snd swamped the streetcar service, so
the training is necessarv. It Is 'ex
pected that fully 150.000 people will be
at the grounds tomorrow.
The standing room only sign Is hung
out at all of the hotels tonight, and
enterprising property-owners are rent
ing tents like hotcakes on vacant lots.
To the credit of Seattle, be it said, that
the hotels and most of the restaurants
are not raising their prices, but there
the credit stops, and even news-stand
dealers are tacklnpj on extra nickles
and dimes to the price of magazines.
The weather for tomorrow promises
to be Ideal. Rain, which dampened
everyone and lowered spirits in gen
eral all yesterday and most of this
morning, stopped at noon and by 1
o'clock the sun was out strong, the
clouds had cleared away and the
Olympics and the great peaks of the
Cascades were doing their part in per
fecting the vistas of the fair grounds.
And so Seattle Is happy and tomorrow
will open to the world the fair of all

this year will be selected from other coun
ties, and these will be people who are well
versed on this line. This is to eliminate
any chance for favoritism. Prizes this
year will also be awarded for merit.
A new stock pavilion will be built dur
ing the Summer, which will be ready at
the time of the opening of the fair. The
stock sheds that are now on the grounds
have been found too small for the horses
that are brought to Canby for the Win
ter's training on the racetrack. The stock
building will be as large as the exhibit
building, which was erected last Summer,
and will be large enough to accommodate
all the stock that will be brought to the
fair. The building will be erected near the
exhibit building. The racetrack has proven
to be one of the finest half-mile race
tracks In the state, and the horsemen who
have wintered with horses state that they
will return next Winter. The track is in
excellent condition. At the opening of the
fair last year the track was new, and the
sand and dust were bad features, mak
ing It impossible for the visitors to get a
good view of the races. The new grand
stand, recently erected. Is one of the larg
est In the state, accommodating about
S000 people. It is so situated on the
grounds as to give the visitors a good
view of the whole racetrack. The struc
ture was erected by subscription money
raised in 20 minutes by the citizens of
Canby. A company was Incorporated, and
the money was subscribed the same day.

Clackamas County Pair Association, con
sists of about 40 acres, and ie an Ideal
place for holding fairs. About 1009 shares
of stock are still to be 6old at $5 a share,
and Secretary Lee wants everybody in the
county who is interested in the County of
Clackamas to at least take one share of
