automobile and vehicle parade only by
dealing- In superlatives.
It was the biggest, best and grand
est In Rose Festival history and that
Isn't mere persiflage, either, as one
of the greatest crowds that ever viewed
a Festival parade can testify.
Seasoned and experienced Festival
fans agreed after It was all over that
the parade was the best of the eight
in Festival history and that the auto
mobile section was the bright particu
lar feature of the whole brilliant en
semble. "It certainly was fine. I hope the
people enjoyed It," declared Queen
Thelma enthusiastically after she had
dropped out of her place at the head
of the line and watched the long pro
cession pass by.
Kntrics Exceed SOO.
The parade passed over a route five
and a half miles in length, covering
some of the principal business streets
on both sides of the river. It was
more than two and a half miles In
length and took an hour and 16 min
utes to pass a given point. There were
more than 300 separate entries bearing
millions of rare and attractive blooms
mostly roses, but not forgetting scores
of other choice Oregon floral products.
Oliver K. Jeffery may have a mon
opoly of grand prizes because he has
been a consistent winner for many
years, but no one dissented from the
judges' decision "in awarding the honor
to him again this year. The Jeffery
entry was decorated in rhododendrons
with an ample supply of green foliage.
J ne artistic manner in which the flow
ers were arranged had as much to do
with the result as anything,

Mrs. Jeffery drove the machine.
"With her was Mrs. E. J. Jeffery, Jr.
Seated high up on a miniature throne
in the rear was little Bradford Carpen
ter, son of C. C. Carpenter, dressed in
a union suit to represent cupld.
True to the determination of the
Festival managers to conduct the
week's entire programme on schedule
time, the parade moved promptly at 2
. Every 'inch of the curbs along which
the pageant passed was packed with
people. The crowd encroached uncom
fortably near the starting place at
Fourteenth and Morrison streets. The
police finally cleared the streets of ob
jectionable automobiles and permitted
the parade to move without interrup
tion. It is generally admitted that the cash
prizes Instead of the accustomed cups
and ribbons, brought out many entries.
Every Entry Passed On. -
George L. Baker, superintendent of
Festival amusements, and a commit
tee of his assistants, passed on the ad
missibility of every entry before It
was permitted to Join the procession.
More than a score of vehicles whose
decorations did not come up to re
quirements were turned out of line. As
a result the entire pageant was made
up of attractive entries.
At the head of the line rode Captain
J. T. Moore. In charge of the police

WASHINGTON, June 10. The fight
which has raged In Congress over the
canal tolls exemption repeal bill for
many months will come to a close be
fore adjournment tomorrow, barring
votes taken tonight on amendments
designed to' preserve any right the
United States possesses under the Hay-
r-aunceiote treaty with Great Britain
to exempt American ships from toll
payment through the Panama Canal
Indicated that the forces of repeal
would win by a substantial majority.
Margin of Tea Predicted.
Senator Simmons, who has led the
fight for repeal, estimated that the bill
will carry by not fewer than ten votes
and there is every promise that his es
timate will prove correct
There was no real test of strength
in the voting tonight, but the repeal
forces won the first round of the fight
when they put through, by a vote of
50 to 24, the so-called Slmmons-Norrls
amendment., which declares that the
United States does not waive or relin
quish any right it may have to exempt
American ships from payment of Pan
ama Canal tolls. Both sides had con
ceded that this amendment would
carry, but it had been the subject of
attack for many hours today and when
the large majority was announced
many Senators were surprised.
. Vote Surprise Km Optlmlarta.
This was the first test vote after
six weeks of debate on the repeal bill.
Even the most optimistic Senators who
favored repeal had not expected the
amendment to carry by so large a ma
jority. It is believed, however, that the
bill Itself cannot be put through by so
great a margin.
Nine Democratic Senators Aehurst,

Dress Reform in Second Place
in Big Convention.
PLEA FOR FREEDOM MADE
Mrs. Burdette Says There Are Manj
"Who Would Wear Sane Clothing
If Manufacturers Would Per
mit Them to Do So.
CHICAGO. June 10. After suffrage
had scored Its first victory, dress re
form In Its relation to morals came be
fore the biennial session of the General
Federation of Women's Clubs at the
penlng session here today.
Mra. Robert J. Burdette. of Pasadena.
CaL. In a plea for the sane dress, as
serted. Wa have 400.000 women fa

we will ask tha convention to In

and extreme, and It is those we would

Fashions Made by Shopgirls.
"There are any number of women
who are ready to dress In a sane man

them to. They can dress beautifully,
appropriately and decently and still be
in good style.
"The shopgirl is tha one who makes
the fashion for the society woman
who goes to a shop and aska for the
very latest-' There Is nothing for the
girl at the shop to do but to bring out
the latest. That Is why we wish to
have tha manufacturers join with us
in the reform."
Led by Illinois women, the suffragists
won the right of discussion on the
floor of the main convention before
the council of the federation. While
no decisive action was taken, the sen
timent of a majority of the delegates
was so strongly expressed that the
executive board and other officers can
scarcely avoid accepting the advice
Saffraaista Wis Opportunity.
This will give the suffragists an op
portunity to bring their battle for In
dorsement to the floor of the conven
tion for the first time.
The women of the federation. 10,000
strong, threw themselves into the con
vention activity with all the ardor of
seasoned politicians. Party flags
were everywhere and "standpatters"
of the organization were lined up
against the suffragists, but lost their
first clash in the throwing open of the
right to discussion from the floor.

Mra Burdette declared that com

Quoting a newspaper, she said: "Ftr
many years the great mass of civilized
humanity has been clothed mainly In
cottons. Outside of the Orient, which
consumes Its own product, 75 per cent
of the total production of cotton fabrics
is from raw material grown in tha

Southern states when that mere tube
of cloth, the hobble skirt, came into
