the Conference Commission on Mor
mOTiism. "just as the view we had
from Council Crest was the grandest
natural panorama I have ever seen "
"Portland has Bet an example to the
entire eouhtry for the celebration 6f a

Batten, of Philadelphia. "It was an
ideal way to pass the day. And what

celebrated the birthday of your Na

"The parade thia morning was a tre
mendous demonstration," said Rev. J.
Boggs Dodds, of Sterling. Kan., field
secretary of the National Reform Asso
ciation, under whose auspices the con-
irence is held. "More than that, it
was unique in bringing together in one
marching column several different
races of people. There were the Af

banner. It was-prophetic of the com

Lieutenant Bosio Comes to America

Farming restricts.
One of the youngest and most zeal
ous of the foreign delegates to the
Christian Citizenship Conference Is
Lieutenant Davide Bosio, of Palermo,
Italy, who,, represents both - war and
peace, as he is an officer in the Italian
army and also a minister of the gospel.
His first training was lor the army,
where he advanced to the rank of
Lieutenant. He also studied in Flor
ence for the church, and afterward
took a post graduate course In Scot
land. Signor Bosio is a Waldenslan, the
oldest Protestant denomination In the
world. His congregation in Rome have
lust built a church with a. seating
capacity of 1200 near the Vatican. Mrs.
John Kennedy Stewart, of New York
City, and Lieutenant Bosio had much
to do with the erection of this edifice.
The Italian preacher has had charge
of a church two years In Rome., and
two years in Palermo, but by serving
two months each year lri the army, he
can keep his rank of lieutenant in the
Highlanders, as his company Is called.
Bosio says the wonderful feats of
horsemanship, which rank Italians as
the best cavalrymen in the world, are
attained by long and patient drilling.
Lieutenant Bosio says Italy's recent
war has aroused patriotism, dispelled
socialism and strengthened national
feeling. Expenses of the war . were
paid from money on hand and no na
tional debt was Incurred.
In speaking of his other calling the
church Lieutenant Bosio said that he
had been three months- now in America,

Gospel hymns by church choirs and
popular patriotic airs by brass bands
provided the crowds which witnessed
the repetition of the Rose Festival elec
tric parade last night with a merry
musical entertainment that served ef
fectively to close Portland's sane Fourth
of July celebration.
Although Portland people- had seen
the parade twice before, they turned
out in great numbers last night to see
it again.
Paradoxical as It may seem, the neo
pie last night,, as In Rose Festival
nights, refused to view the parade from
tfle places where It can be seen to best
advantage from the semi-darkened
streets in the residence districts.
bo far as the parade itself is con
eerned. it had lost none of its glory

applause. The firemen's band appeared

that- the people who come from our
shores to your own may become good

Sweden had no special representative
at the stadium, but J. F. Olson brought
a-message from the land of Northern
"I cannot congratulate you on this,
your day of Independence,, like some
of these nresent, because I am a Brit
