A. W. Post had an entry that was
unique. On the back of his machine

Ldies' Band Is Feature.
The barbecue on Council Crest given
yesterday afternoon by the Piedmont
Assembly of United Artisans In honor
of the Oakland, Cal., Artisans, who are
attending the reunion of the order,
was attended by 1800 persons.
The feast was held in the enclosure
formed by the gravity railway, which
contains many trees. The savory
fumes of delicious coffee and barbe
cued beefsteak kept the serving table
surrounded with persons eager to be
served, and music was supplied by the
Artisans' Ladies' Band.
The affair was entirely Informal and
In many ways resembled an old-fash
ioned picnic as groups were gathered
about on the ground apparently con
tent to enjoy the leisure afforded by
the bright sunshine after they had
finished their eating.
Beside the Piedmont Assembly H. S.

Variety of Exhibits Declared
Greater Than Found at
Other Displays."
Squaws and Chiefs Dash Among
Spectators and Capture Palefaces
of Opposite Sexes as Part
ners In Tribal Dance.
Not for one mcment yesterday was
there any abatement in the throngs
that trooped toward the Armory to
see the roses In all their glory on
exhibition; roses massed In great pro
fusion; roses standing alone in their
daintiness; roses by the half dozen and
the score in competition for the va
riety exhibits.
Long before President Currey was
ready to open the doors yesterday
morning, there was a crowd of peo
ple waiting to enter, and that was but
typical of the crowds that poured in
all day. What brought forth from
all the visitors expressions of genuine
astonishment was the wonderful man
ner In which these far-famed flowers
of Oregon had held up their heads,
despite the fact that they had been
on exhibition for over 48 hours.
So pleased were the Blackfeet In
dians with their previous visit to the
show that they were present again
yesterday afternoon. Each one was in
troduced by J. L. Shoemaker, who
afterwards briefly gave history about
them all. Then they gave their famous
dances for the benefit of the throngs
that had crowded round, saving a sur
prise for the last. This was the dance
in which each of the chiefs and the
squaws suddenly dash out Into the
crowd and select a pale-face partner.
The alacrity with which the whole
thing was pulled off was startling,
and the crowd cheered to the echo.
Indian Maid Capture Policeman.
Dawn Mist, said to be the most beau
tiful Indian maiden in the world,
showed her predilection for the boys
in blue by seizing on to Patrolman
Riley, while Chief Three Bears, Chief
Long Time Sleep et al. took for their
partners Miss Portland, Miss Snokane,
Miss Pasadena or Miss Guest-from-somewhere.
Patrolman Riley wore a smile on
his face for the rest of the afternoon.
He couldn't help telling everybody all
about it. "She didn't rest content with
taking me by the hand and danclne-.
not she," ejaculated the good-looking
policeman. "She just put her arms
around me tight and led me on, but
you bet 1 was there all the time."
Large crowds had followed the
Blackfeet up to the Armory and the
huge hall was packed all the time
they were there.
Those who saw the exhibit last year,
in comparing it with the present one,
say that there is a far greater variety
of blooms and that the arrangement
of the flowers themselves this year is
on a much better plan than in pre
vious years, as It allows the great
crowds to move rcund easily and with
out blocking the view of the exhibits.
The roses will be on exhibit again
tomorrow, which will make the third
day for most of them. Considering
how many prijie have passed through
the Armory, me change from the out
door temperature to that of a build
ing with a tin roof and the fact that
they can last for two days, let alone
three, has been surprising to the ma
jority of the visitors.
EiWMt Surpsam Others.
In most of the big cities, whenever
rose shows are held, they last for
about six hours of one day, the London
show being an example of this. A
visitor who had seen the last exhibi
tion in the great English metropolis
was emphatic in hit opinion of the
beauty of the exhibits here and of the
rarity of the atmosphere and the hard
ihood of the roses themselves.
The band was busy all the time,
people thronged the upstairs seats,
enthusiasts and connoisseurs engaged In
making notes comparing this Amer
ican Beauty critically with that, some
Papa Gontler with another, or the yel
low of a William Allen Richardson
with the deeper colors of some other
equally well known variety.
At the west end of the hall four
charming maidens distributed nowers
to one and all, the whole day long.
One of them early In the morning had
gone to Portland Heigltts to secure
masses of the nowers, and others of
the girls had gone to various places
gathering In all they could, for thou
sands were needed, as at a conserva
tive estimate between 7000 and 8000
people visited the show during the day.
Today Is the last day of the exhibi
tion, for, as one of the Judges put it.
even Portland roses cannot be ex
pected to last forever,"

Sound of festival penertated far up
the Columbia, where the Royal Rosa
rians and their guests from Pasadena,
Oakland and Spokane yesterday passed
the greater part of the day on board
the O.-W. R. & N. steamer Hassalo.
On shore or on shipboard it was all
the same to the hosts and the visitors,
and at the slightest Impulse they let
their Jollity bubble over Into songs and
cheers or manifest itself in dances or
impromptu serpentines.
The Oakland boys' band was brought
on board the boat by the Royal Oaks
and scarcely had the Hassalo left the
Ash-street dock when the musicians
plunged Into a rendition of "Row Row,
Row, Way Up the River."
Royal Oaks Have Sport.
Half a dozen of the Royal Oaks, with
their toes still tingling from the rag
time celebration at the Armory on the
previous night, formed a serpentine and
started aft through the cabin. Knights
of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses
and ftoyal Rosarians Joined them.
Women of the party crowded laughing
into the line and, swaying to the lilt
of the music, they circled throughout
the boat, up and down over every deck,
only stopping when the exhausted
bandsmen ceased to play.
All the way down the Willamette
and after the boat swung Into the
Columbia they frollicked like children
and whenever the musicians sufficient
ly regained their breath to start an
other tune, the hilarious serpentine
wwum materialize m an Instant and
circle in and out about the decks.
C. C. Chapman, stationing himself in
the bow of the ship, assumed the du
ties of "spieler" when the boat reached
the N portion of the river where the
scenic splendor of the gorge Ilrst be
gins to be apparent. As the rugged
scenery became more and more im
posing the festival party abandoned its
dancing and serpentines and lined the
rail to pay tribute to the beauty of the
river and its shores.
Multnomah Falls Seen.
A landing was made at Multnomah
Falls and the guests went ashore to
view the falls near at hand. All along
the river banks at this place wild flow,
ers were abundant. White spirea, tiger
lilies, Indian pinks, maidenhair ferns
and scores of other specimens out
matched In their varied colors the
streamers and ribbons of the festival
With exclamations of delight the
guests plunged in a body toward the
bank of wild flowers and each merged
with both hands full of blossoms. The
wild flower hedge for several hundred
feet from the landing place was
stripped of tiger lilies within less than
a minute and everybody was marching
triumphantly down to view the falls
with a great burden of the brilliant
The visitors were unstinting in their
expressions of delight over the enter
tainment, the trip and the scenery of
the Columbia, which many of them
were seeing for the first time.
"I have been in Europe many times,"
said one man from Pasadena "and
there is nothing in the Alps that can
compare In grandeur with this. This
trip has certainly been a revelation to
After the boat started on the Teturn
trip from Multnomah Falls the guests
were assembled In the dining-room,
which had been fitted into an im
promptu theater, and were entertained
at a "matinee," performers for which
were sent by the People's Amusement
Company. Frank McCrillls presided
over this feature and In an intermis
sion captured a share of the applause
for himself with a striking rendition
of "Casey at the Bat."
The serpentine Impulse seized the
voyagers once more when the band re
sumed Its playing after the entrance
into the mouth of the Willamette. Al
most all the way up through the harbor
the men of the party danced breath
lessly about the decks or, gathering in
the cabins, vied with one another in
singing the songs of their organiza
tions. Miss Margaret Motie, the "Miss Bpo-

Fred Reed, the Monarch of tho Oaks,
and "Bill" Hanley, who was captured
at the last moment and "shanghaied"
on board the Hassalo, were guests of
honor among the visitors. Mr. Hanley
was dragged aft at one time during tho
trip to give an address and rose to tho
occasion with a stirring oration on co
operation and good-fellowship between
the people of the Paciflu Coast.
Autos Convey Royalties.
After the arrival of the Hassalo in
Portland the royalties of the party
were taken to their hotels in autos,
while the Royal Oaks drill team
marched through the streets with its
band to the Oregon Hotel.
F. T. HyskclJ was chairman of tho
day and, assisted by Dean Vincent,
kept the fun going throughout tho ex
cursion. Refreshments, donated for the trip
by various firms of the city, were
served during the afternoon.
Visiting Oaks and Knights of Pasa
dent who did not take the trip on the
xia&aaio were entertained with trips
about tho city and many attended the
Artisans' barbecue at Council Crest In
the afternoon. Several of tho visitors
from other cities were also guests at
the luncheon of the Rotary Club at the
Commercial Club at noon.

Party From North Reaches Portland
by Steamer Front Ka lama.
One Seattle contingent occupying 13
autos arrived yesterday to visit tho
Rose Festival and owing to the fact
the road between Kalama and Rldge
fleld Is covered by water because of
the freshet, the party was compelled,
to span the submerged area on tho
steamer Joseph Kellogg, which brought
them here. It is said the road is vir
tually impassable between Carroll's
Point and Kelso. If sufficient cars
are listed the owners of the Kellogg
will make a special trip Saturday af
ternoon to carry the machines of those,
wishing to return north that evening.
