FINAL' - DECISION REACHED
President AVill Be Guest of Local
Committee Saturday, October 2.
" Will Speak That Night
at Armory. v
President Taft will be considered the
guest of the city and will be in the
hands of the local committee on enter
tainment from Saturday morning at 7
o'clock until that night at 10 o'clock, and
after that he will be turned over offi
cially to Senator Bourne for safekeeping.
This is the decision reached by the com
mittee of he. whole, which met- in open
session yesterday afternoon at the City
Hall, Mayor Simon presiding.
To yield gracefully to the wishes of the
President, even though they be not in
strict accord with those of the mem
bers of the committee, was the conclusion
to which the committee- came after dis-
1 -u hhniuii nf thn nituatlon. Thus
Mr. Taft's visit will be divided Into two
distinct and separate parts; and Senator
Bourne will have the distinguished guest
over night Satin-day. October 2, and all
day Sunday. 1
While T. B. Wilcox announced that ne
had reserved a wing of the Hotel Port
land for President Taft and party prior
to the date upon which Senator Bourne
reserved the same suite, Mr. Wilcox said
that he would not use such bad taste as
Senator Bourne has, and would not in
sist upon pressing the priority of the
claim on the rooms. Mr. Wilcox said
that he does not care anything about
the matter, only that he, in common with
the other members of the committee,
wished to see President Taft the guest
of the city, and not of any individual,
while here. ,
As matters stand, the President will be
met at the depot by members of the lo
cal committee and military escort, and
will be taken to the Hotel Portland to
breakfast, with members of the com
mittee. After breakfast he will be taken
about the city and through the down
town streets, so that those who wish
may see klm 'at that time. He will then
be given a luncheon at the Portland, and
the afternoon win be free.' At 7:45 P. M.
the committee -will meet the President
and escort him to the Armory, where
the President Is scheduled for a brief
public address.' Here the duties of the
committee end. The President will then
return to the hotel to 'become the guest
of Senator Bourne for the remainder of
his stay. Sunday afternoon the Presi
dent Will lay the cornerstone of the Uni
versalis! Church, East Twenty-fourth

NEW YORK FASHION NOTES
Of Interest to Women of Fashion.
By One" Who Knows.
During the latter part of August
there was held In Madison Square Gar
den, New York, a great fashion exhibit
under the auspices of the "Style and
Fabric Association."' To the .devotees
of fashion as well as to the creators of
fashionable garments for wiynen, this
magnificent exhibit afforded a splendid
opportunity to get in touch with the
coming Fall styles. The new modes in
Dress, in Fabrics, in Garnitures, were
.11 .k.miino-iv 1-pnrespnted. but tha
great outstanding feature of the exhibit
was undoubtedly to Da louna in me
various Corset Exhibits..
Of supreme importance Is the Corset
of today. It Is simply impossible for
any Modiste, jiowever expert, to make
a perfect fitting gown, in the present
modes, unless the gown is made over a
perfect fitting Corset; hence its im
portance. Again the health preserving
properties in the newest models are
highly commended by physicians of re
pute. The tight lacing, uncomfortable
Corsets of the past are gone forever
and the new Corsets are built along
scientific lines, so that no woman, prop
erly fitted, to these newest models, need
have' any anxiety concerning her ap
pearance, even if, as one expert' has
said, "nature has been lajc irf the proper
distribution of tissue."
Perhaps the most striking feature of
this great Corset Exhibit was the im
portance . attached by . experts to the
new front laced models. The "Modart"
Exhibit of front laced Corsets in par
ticular was favored by all the New
York experts. Beautiful in outline, of
exquisite material, and of ready adapt
ability to a wide range of figures, the
Modart Corsets found favor at the first
glanc"whlc?i greatly strengthened upon
It was Instructive to watch the effect
of the Modart Exhibit upon the visitors.
Along the aisle comes the keen eyed
male expert, quick to discern the rare
beauty and symmetry of the Modart
Corset, or some beautifully gowned
woman would more slowly approach,
looking at this igroup of modelsand
then at that group, with an evidently
only casual interest,' but as she ap
proached the Modart Exhibit her atten
tion centered and( her interest became
Judging from the great interest cre
ated during the days' of the Madison
Square Garden Exhibit, it seems very
evident that the front laced corset will
very soon supplant ' the back laced
The "Modart" Corset is new this sea
son; It is the' result of years of close
study by the greatest expert corset designers-
of the world today and is a
revelation in scientific corset manufac
ture.' The demand for it in New York
already far exceeds the present supply.
The introduction of the "Modart"
models will in the, opinion of all expert
designers inaugurate a new corset era.
The front lacing corset Is easy of ad
justment and shapes the back, hips and
bust of the wearer perfectly; so much
so that these charming "Modart" models
are receiving the commendation of all
New York's foremost Modistes. The
problem of beauty and comfort, whether
the wearer is standing or sitting. Is
practically solved in the new "Modart"
front lacod corset.
