With an electrical tribute to Rex Ore

The Dream of Rex Oregonus" the
parade was caller, and with 300,000
candlepower of electric light the scenes
of his vision were flashed forth from
16 floats, surpassing the display of
lost year, which so astonished the be
holders that it had to be repeated. By
means of mirrors so arranged that they
threw into relief the profiles of the
Queens and the characters riding in pro
cession, the display of light was multi
plied a hundred-fold.
Yesterday was a fitting climax of a
tuccessful week. At the night parade
the capacity of the stands and streets
was taxed to its utmost and the' crowds
at the afternoon pageant of the horses
were hardly less large.
Horses Hnrtidsome Display.
At this the hunting and driving organi
sations made a handsome display. Theirs
was a turnout of spirited animals, giv
ing chance for an admirable display of
horsemanship. During the passing of
the parade some of the horses became
frightened and considerable skill was
shown by their riders in keeping them
in check.
Floral decorations predominated. Those
who neglected to make a floral display
found their entries unregarded by the
Judges.
Some adopted a single color scheme.
Yellow, red, pink and purple shades were
the most popular, but a number had
pure white displays. These were among
the more handsome.
By means of tastefully blended- shades,
some charming results were obtained.
The entire absence of the grotesque, no
ticeable in previous years, was a wel
come feature of the parade.
Visitors Amuse Themselves.
As to what the visitors did with them
selves between the times of the Festi
val pageants the crowded condition of.
the river craft and the presence on the
Willamette of every small boat that could
be rented was an indication of the where
abouts of a large number. The fact
that not a livery stable had a turnout to
rent also explains in part.
All day the parks and resorts received
their quota of visitors. According to in
formation furnished by the railroad a
large number went to the various sea
side resorts, while the picnic grounds on
the Columbia River were patronized by
a great number.
However, all of these returned in time
for the electric p-Jfc'ade at night.
This, not being dependent on horses
or freshly-hired help, moved off promptly
on time and completed its line of march
in time for visitors and residents to reach
their abfdng places at a seasonable hour.
Although the streetcars and suburban
trolley routes were Jammed by the
crowds, the manner in which the cars
were moved insured the early clearance of
the down-town streets, save for the
merrymakers, whose amusement consist
ed in hornblowing and feather tickling.
Rex Oregonus, mounted on his throne
behind an immense dragon with fiery
eyes, led the electrical pageant of legend
and allegory through the crowded streets.
King on Peacock Throne.
Heralded by two trumpeters, the King
of the Festival smilingly nodded approval
to the seas of beaming faces lining either
side of the streets. Beside the throne
two strong lions guarded His Majesty
and two attendants stood ready to serve
at a beckoning of the hand. The throne
was imbedded in the plumage of a pea
cock's tail, expansively spread across the
rear -of the float.
The Queen of Bees followed Rex Ore
gonus. with her busy hive and swarm of

all in harness of ribbons. Beside the
Queen were two great horns of plenty
filled to overflowing with luscious fruit.

Young Man Comes to Festival and
Weds Miss Willa Smith..
R. A. McCormick. son of R. L. McCor
mlck, millionaire lumberman of Tacoma,
and Miss Willa BL Smith, the pretty sec
retary for the Jacobs-Stine Company,
were married in the parlors of the First
Presbyterian Church at 9 o'clock
Wednesday night.
The; marriage is the culmination of a
romance which began a year ago, when
young McCormick stepped into the real
estate office of the Jacobs-Stlne Company
to buy real estate and saw the pretty
secretary sitting behind a desk.. It was a
ease of love at first sight and since that
day McCormick has been very attentive
to Miss Smith.
McCormick left Tacoma without dis
closing the purpose of his visit to Port
land, other than that he wanted to visit
the Rose Festival. He registered at the
Imperial Hotel and was; not long in find
ing Miss Smith. The couple quietly left
the hotel in a taxloab, went to the church
and were married.
The news soon leaked out and the Ta
coma Rotary Club, which was visiting the
Portland Rotary Club, descended upon
the -pair and showered its. blessings. The
bride and bridegroom entertained their
friends at the Imperial after the wedding
and then the Rotary Club took charge
of them and escorted them' to the Per
kins, where a dinner was served.
Mr. and Mrs. McCormick have not an
nounced their plans, but Tacoma friends
say the marriage will be one of the big
gest surprises that has been sprung in
social circles of that city in some time.
Miss Smith is the daughter of Mrs. Ray
Smith, of this city, and has been a resi
dent of Portland for several years.
GALLAGHER IS NOT SOUGHT
Ex-Supervisor Calls Absence Excuse
for Dropping Graft Probe.
VANCOUVER, B. C. June 9. (Special.)
Having been discovered in his sylvan
retreat among the pines of North Van
couver yesterday, James Gallagher, the
former San Francisco Supervisor, today
ventured from his, retreat long enough to
visit Vancouver. During an interview
Gallagher said that overtures' have never
been made to him by friends of Ruef or
the San Francisco graft prosecution to
get him to return to California and give
evidence in the graft cases, now held up.
He said he had never been subpenaed.
"My candid opinion,", he said, "is that
the -prosecution has used my absence as
an excuse to drop out of the entire deal.
The man responsible for the present tan
gle finds a beautiful subterfuge in my
absence. If what the prosecution claims
is true, there is sufficient evidence to
convict Ruef and a whole lot more whose
names bore the stigma of graft some
years ago."

TAFT REPEATS REBUFF
Calling to Introduce Delegation
Francis B. Harrison Is Excluded
Because He Accused Taft of
Attempt to Deceive. -
WASHINGTON, June 9. President Taft
today declined to received Representative
Francis Burton Harrison (Dem.), of New
York, who called at the White House in
company with two other Representatives
to Introduce a number of Jewish rabbis
who took up with the President the ques
tion of the expulsion of Jews from Rus
sia. The President received the delegation
and chatted with its various members for
15 minutes or more. Representative Gold
fogle, of New York, acted as spokesman
for the party and so adroitly had the
situation been handled by Secretary Nor
ton that not one of the callers knew of
the incident until Mr. Harrison returned
to the Capitol and there stated that he
had been rebuffed by the President.
Harrison Charged Wrong-Doing.
Mr. Taft bas!d his Tefusal to see Mr.
Harrison on statements attributed by
newspapers to the Representative in con
nection with the resolutions introduced in
the House calling on Attorney-General
Wlckersham for full information on tha
connection of his office with the Ballin-ger-Plnchot
episode.
Mr. Harrison, according to the White
House version of the matter, charged the
President and Attorney-General with
having wilfully attempted to mislead
Congress" In the back-dating of the Attorney-General's
summary of the Glavis
charges. . - ,
Mr. Harrison was first quoted as
having said that he could assign no
reason for the President's action to
day. He had made the engagement
with the President some ten days ago
and had received no intima ion that
his presence at the White House was
undesirable.
Norton Tries to Spare Harrison.
Mr. Norton was at first unwilling
to discuss the incident. Later, when
he was informed of the statements of
Mr. Harrison, he told the story. He
said that the President had no inten
tion of publicly humiliating the Con
gressman, as had been said, and that
nothing would have been said of the
affair had not Mr. Harrison himself
made the matter public. Mr. Norton
said that- the President had expressly
indicated the desire that nothing be
said regarding the matter.
. Mr. Norton said he noticed that Rep
resentatives Harrison and Goldfogle,
of New York, and Representative Kel
lher. of Massachusetts, were with the
party of rabbis at the head of the line
waiting admission to the President's
Office. He spoke to all the members

ILL-LUCK TAGS JOHNSON
Wife's Death and Son's Fatal Fall
Depress Burned Man.
VANCOUVER, Wash., June 9. (Spe
cial.) Grim fate seems to be pursuing;
Otto Johnson, ' who was so seriously
burned two months ago that he will
be unable to work for a year. Last
night his youngest son, Johnny John
son, 11 years old, fell from 'a hay loft
at Hldden's brick yard and fractured
his skull in three places. There is no
hope of his recovery. t
The year of 1910 for Otto Johnson
has been the most unfortunate one In
his whole life. This Spring his wife
died, leaving several children mother
less. Shortly after this he was so bad
ly burned that he will be kept from
working for at least a year. Skin has
Been grafted on the burn. Some of the
cuticle was bought and some given by
friends.
Three weeks ago. Arthur, 13 years
old, was missing for several days and
it was thought that he was drowned,
but he was found attempting to Join
a circus.
Last night little Johnny suffered a
fractured skull, and now Johnson,
lying on his back, is wondering what
next will happen.

In Spite of Mourning for Kins Ed
ward ex-President Has Had
Most Notable Reception of
Any Foreign Visitor..
LONDON, June 9. Theodore Roosevelt's
visit to England, ending tomorrow morn
ing, though unfortunately coinciding with
the period of national mourning and for
that reason shorn of much of the splen
dor that would have accompanied it
under happier circumstances, was one of
the most noteworthy foreign visits paid
to Great Britain in many years.
No foreign visitor could have been ac
corded greater honor, received a warmer
welcome or achieved a greater popularity
among every class of society.
It is true that his strictures on Egyp
tian affairs occasioned political resent
ment in some quarters, but he left no
rancor behind because he was regarded
as a privileged guest in whom no un
worthy or unfriendly motive could be sus
pected and the frankness of his utter
ance is taken as a measure of the strength
of the fceindship behind the two na
tions. Colonel Gives London Slip.
The death of King Edward compelled
the curtailment of public demonstrations
and entertainment projected in Mr.
Roosevelt's honor. Even so, he was un
able to accept half the Invitations
showered upon him.
In characteristic fashion Mr. Roose
velt deprived - Londoners of the privi
lege of giving him a sendoff. Before the
public was aware of his Intention, he had
quietly left the city, not half a dozen
persons knowing the time or manner of
his departure.
It appears that the Colonel complained
he had not had time to see a hundredth
part of the country. He particularly
wanted to walk through a typical Eng
lish countryside.
With Sir Edward Grey on Hike.
Accordingly, Sir Edward Grey, the For.
eign Secretary, gave him a friendly chal
lenge to tramp through New Forest, a
picturesque and romantic spot near
Southampton, full of geological and anti
quarian interest.
Sir Edward is a keen angler and deeply
interested In ornithology and the two
started today on a long tramp through
the woods. It Is believed that the ex
pedition will be extended and that they
will spend the night at an Inn, motoring
into Southampton in the morning, when
Mr. Roosevelt will meet his wife and
family, who will go from London to
Southampton in a special car.
Invitations Are Declined.
The ex-President had to decline the
invitation from the Mayor of South

APPEAL MAY OPEN
WHOLE RATE ISSUE
COMMISSION WOULD TAKE UP
OREGOX CITY FARES.
Board to Act on Suggestion Tbat
Full Question Be Taken Up
With Mllwaukie Case.
SALEM. Or.. June 9. (Special.)
The Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company today took initial steps to
ward an appeal of the Milwaukie and
Oak Grove rate cases to the United
States Supreme Court. The company
filed a petition for a writ of error and
the court has extended the ,time for
filing of assignment of error and bond
to June SO.
The appeal will operate to prevent
any reduction of the 10-cent fare to
Milwaukie and Oak Grove until after
the case has been passed on finally.
Railroad Commissioner West said this
afternoon:
"Since the company has set out to
tie this rate matter up in the courts
for several years, it seems to me that
it would be well for the commission
to take up without further delay the
question of the reasonableness of all
the company's rates between Oregon
City and Portland in order that, if they
are found unreasonable, an order may
be made and it may be started on its
way through the courts.
"As it is, it looks like too small a
matter to take up to the Supreme Court
of the United States, but if the Oregon
City rates' could be tacked onto it, it
would make a case of suftlcient import
ance to justify the commissioners stand
ing the expense of a trip to Washing
ton. It is likely such action will be
suggested to the commission at its next
regular meeting."

WASHINGTON, June 9. Mexico has
agreed to the terms pf arbitration pro
posed by the United States for the set
tlement of the Chemizal zone contro

boundary between this country and
Mexico in the vicinity of El Paso.

Knox of Mexico's acceptance of the ar
bitration agreement. The terms of the
proposition have been defined only in
a general tentative form and the de
tails of the agreement will be form

name has not yet been announced, it

- The difficulty developed from the
shifting of the Rio Grande River and
leaving a large zone known as El
Chamlzel on the American side , of the
river, though Mexico claimed it on the
