PARIS, June 12. The new French

Deputies by a vote of S06 to 262. The
Premier had asked for a vote of con
The Premier immediately resigned.
An inspiration to patriotism, a lei-
son in Industry and an appeal for so
cial happiness were contained in the
parade at noon yesterday that marked
the climax of Rose Festival activities.
The great military section, represent
ing all arms of service op land and sea,
could not fall to arouse a feeling of
enthusiasm, confidence and loyalty for
the state and Nation ln the hearts of
the thousands who watched the pro
cession as it passed for three full hours
through the city's principal business
All Oregon Activities Glorified.
The industrial sections combined to
glorify, in Impressive review, all the
dynamic activities against which the
energies of Oregon's sons are directed.
The fraternal section, in contrast
with the others, depicted the peaceful
element of society. It represented fra
ternal brotherhood, art, literature,
music and all elements of human en
deavor that niak,e for social happiness.
Neither was the spectacle without its
humorous side. There were many comi
cal and entertaining features. It was
entertaining as well as instructive.
It surely was splendid!" exclaimed
Queen Thelma after seeing it pass in
Pageant Four Mllea Long.
A score of hands and numerous other.
musical companies, whole regiments of
military bodies, hundreds of commer
cial and Industrial exhibits and a long
line of civic, fraternal and social ag
gregations, together with dozen after
dozen of attractively decorated floats,
formed the four-mile column of pageantry.
A light rain fell for a period of 10
minutes Just as the procession was
ready to move, but did not affect the
participants nor diminish the size or
enthusiasm of the crowd.
Again, while the pageant was at its
height, a shower started, but was
checked before it did any damage. No
one budged from position. The marchers
kept right on marching and the watch
ers kept right on watching. It would
have takena a mighty hard downpour
to drive the paradera to shelter and a
still harder one to force the spectators
At any rate, the light rain was better
than would have been a clear sky with
plenty of strong . sunshine.
SIOOO Prises Are Awarded,
More than 11000 was distributed by
the Festival Association ln cash prizes.
Competition in nearly every depart
ment was keen.
The prize of $200 for uniformed fra
ternal organizations was awarded to
the Woodmen of the World for having
the largest number of uniformed mem
bers In line.
The prize of $50 for the greatest
number of any Individual camp, lodge
or court, uniformed, went to the Span
ish War Veterans.
The Transportation Club won the
prise of $150 for the most artistic float.
Regarding tho prize for the civic or
fraternal organization having the
greatest number uniformly dressed in

James Jackson, the Judges.

The Transportation Club's showing
was an excellent one, as all who saw
it agreed. The series of floats provid
ed a true representation of the progress
of rail and steamship transportation
from the earliest period of Oregon's
development until the present time.
The club had 421 men ln uniform.
Several scores more of transportation
men rode on their floats.
Officials Decline Their Priaea.
Among the participants awarded
prizes by the judges were the Union
Meat Company, which won second for
the most artistic advertising float, and
the Packard Auto Company, which took
first prize for the most unique ad
vertising float. Both these awards
were declined, however, as C C. Colt,
president of the Festival Association,
is president of the Union Meat Com
pany, and F. C. Riggs. a governor of
the association, is manager for the
Packard Auto Company. On account of
their connections with the Festival. Mr.
