SALEM, Or., Oct 1. (Special.) A
new record was set for attendance at
cthe State Fair today when about 25.
000 persons passed through the grates.
It was Salem day, and right royally did
the Capital City and other valley towns
pay tribute to Oregon products. All
previous attendance records were
With not a cloud In the sky and as
beautiful an Autumn day as Oregon or
any state can boast, the crowds started
to the fair grounds early, and from 9
o'clock In the morning- until 9 o"clock
at night there was a steady stream of
humanity passing through the "tent
city" to the grounds. The streetcar
system was taxed to the limit, but
managed to give good service, and all
automobiles in the city were kept busy.
But large as was the attendance to
day It is believed that it will be
eclipsed tomorrow, Portland day, when
the metropolis Is expected to be better
represented at the fair than ever be
fore. Virtually all of Salem will be at
the grounds tomorrow, and with the ad
dition of the Portland people there
truly will be standing room only.
The grandstand at the racetrack was
crowded to its capacity today.
Desire to Attend Shown.
That Oregonians will attend the an
nual exhibition in great numbers with
propitious weather has been demon
strated during the first three days
this week, all previous records having
been broken. Tomorrow's programme
is as tine as was ever arranged by the
management, and it is predicted that
85,000 or 40,000 persons will attend.
All business houses and public of
fices, with the exception of those the
law requires to keep open, were closed
today, and employer and employe
joined the merry crowd at the fair
grounds. The programme was so ar
ranged that there was amusement and
entertainment for the entire day and
evening. Three bands, the Chemawa
Indians, Cherrians' and McElroy'B ren
dered concerts throughout the day.
The bright sunshine of the early
morning started the crowds to the fair
grounds, and by noon It was estimated
that 10,000 persons had entered.
Wearing their natty cream-colored
uniforms, the Cherrians, led by the
Palem Band, marched to the Southern
Pacific station at 10 o'clock to meet the
Radiators, of Eugene. The visitors end
the Cherrians marched through the
principal streets and then went to the
fair grounds for luncheon.
New Record Is Expected.
That all records for attendance will
be broken this year Is assured if tomor
rowPortland day is as fine fair
weather as the first three days. Even
now the management is figuring on
coming out ahead, and all the officers
are wearing broad smiles. '
About 2000 of the finest babies In
Oregon have been examined In the
eugenics department, one of the most
Interesting of the fair, which closed
this afternoon. The names of the
prizewinners will not be made public
tintu Friday night, when Governor
Wes' will announce them and make the
awards in Music Hall. There are 28
prizes, the aggregate cost being about
$1000. Babies irom an parts or me
state were entered In the contest, and
It was unquestionably the best eugenics
exhibition ever held In the state. The
first prize for rural babies is J100 in
gold, and a similar prize will be given
for the best city baDy.
Benton Will Try Again.
Although the Benton County people
still believe that they have as fine
a county exhibit as Douglas County.
winner of first prize, they take their
defeat good naturedly. and declare they
will come back next year determined
to win highest honor. Benton has
won first honors five times.
Clackamas County also will make a
determined effort to win next year,
being encouraged by winning second
prize last year and third this week.
E. P. Carter, ex-Representative In the
Legislature, who has cnarge of the ex
hibit declared today that he could
have won first honor for his county
this year if he had been allowed the
time In which to assemble the best
his county can produce.
More awards were made today in' the
children's Industrial department, which
Is crowding the eugenics for the honor
of being the most popular department
of the fair. The building is far too
small for the display and the crowds
that gather in It at all times of the
day. The management has decided to
erect a new building for the eugenics
contest next year, and it is not im
probable that another will be built for
the children's Industrial department.
"If the children's industrial depart
ment keeps on growing as It has
been." said E. F. Carleton, Assistant
Superintendent of Public Instruction,
who Is in charge, "we shall need the
largest building on the grounds. And
I see no reason why It should not
continue to grow, for the people are
learning now what the children can
do under proper instruction, and aru

Foreman Who "Discovered" 'Claim'
Is Firm In Declaration That
Slount Tabor Gravel Not "Salt
ed" Before Assay Made.
Portland has either a real gold mine,
carrying values which would cause a
rush In almost any mining district In
the world, or the city Is the victim of
a practical Joke on the part of T.
Tanna, foreman at Mount Tabor Park.
Both possibilities are being Investi
gated by Park Superintendent Mische,
while City -Attorney LaRoche- Is look
ing up legal barriers to prevent pros
pectors or speculators from attempting
to establish a mineral claim on the
ground and several hundred Interested
bystanders are awaiting developments.
The reputed gold mine, which has
been uncovered In a thick strata of
dark-colored sand and volcanio ash on
the edge of Interlink Drive In Mount
Tabor Park, was visited yesterday by
more than 1000 persons. Prospecting
was forbidden In the two holes that
have been opened up in the sidehill by
excavations for the Jrive.
Park Superintendent Mische started
an Investigation of the authenticity of
the assay which was made Monday,
showing $1092.66 gold -to the ton. He
heard rumors yesterday to the effect
that Mr. Tanna, who took the sample
of the rock to the assayer, had "salted"
the sample with bits of high-grade ore
brought here from Telluride, Colo. Mr.
Tanna yesterday denied this report.
Assayer Williams, who tested the
gravel for Mr. Tana, says that he has
tested much volcanic ash and -material
resembling - the formation and had
never known It to carry more than 10
or $15 in gold to the ton. He said
that he had never heard of any ore
in this part of the country running
high In gold and declared that It re
quires a rich mine to produce an assay
of $1000 to the ton.
Another assay will be made to verify
the assay made by Mr. Tanna,
City Attorney LaRoche set Deputy
City Attorney Meyers to work yester
day looking up the law regarding the
right of any person to file on the land
for mining purposes. As a result of
the Investigation Mr. LaRoche will
prepare an opinion this morning to the
effect that no person can secure any
mining rights In the park. He advised
against the city tiling on tne ciaim
to protect the city's rights, as sug
gested Tuesday by Superintendent
Park Superintendent Mische an
nounced yesterday that If It Is found
that the ground really carries high
gold values, as shown by the assay,
he will make a survey to determine
the depth of the gold deposit and Its
extent, with the end In view of de
veloping a mining project for the city.
Mr. Tanna, who says he Is an old
mining man, does not believe the strike
Is extensive enough to warrant oper
ations, saying that "there Is really
nothing to get excited about." Super
intendent Mische and members- of the
City Commission have taken the op
posite view of the proposition, declar
ing that If there is $1092 to be secured
from each ton of the material In the
park It Is worth operating.
Crowds of curious investigators be
gan to flock to the park bright and
early yesterday. In the crowds were
old mining men, who said that the
formation, as uncovered, might carry
gold, but does not look like It would
be as rich as the assay would Indi
cate. It Is estimated that close to a ton of
the formation has been taken away
already by persons desiring small sam
ples for panning and testing.

Clarke County Farmers Said to Be
Holding Land Too High.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct 1. (Spe
cial.) That there is some possibility
that the Pacific Highway may be
changed from Its course In one or more
sections of Clarke County Is apparent
from the action of a number of farm
ers living along the right of way, who
desire to get more than the land Is
worth from the state. Mr. Perclval, of
the State Highway Commission, has
been making a trip through the section
of the Pacific Highway near La Center
