BE 08 GRAND SCALE
Committee Expects to Take
: Greatest Excursion on Rec
ord to Southern Cities.
GREETINGS TO BE CARRIED
A. H. Averill Declares Portland Owes
lebt of Gratitude to Organiza
tion Which Proclaims Oregon's
, Greatness. Free of Cost.
That the largest and most represent
ative excursion of business men and
community workers ever to go out of
Oregon will leave Portland December
28 to bear greetings from Oregon to the
officials of the Panama-Pacinc Exposi
tion at Kan Francisco and of the San
Diego Exposition, as well as to the people-of
California generally, is the ex
pectation of the excursion committee
of the Jtoyal Rosarians. The party will
Co by special train.
The mission of the excursionists is
to convey f eltcitations not. only to the
cities of California, but also to arouse
interest among Californians and tour
ists in the forthcoming Kose Festival
and to exploit the many attractive fea
tures of Oregon. It is planned to make
short stops on the outgoing trip at
Orants Pass, Medford. Ashland and Sac
ramento. Part of a day will be passed
at Oakland and on December 31 the
Oregon delegation will take part in the
formal dedication of the Oregon build
ing at San Francisco. The Rosarians
then will proceed to San Diego, stop
ping en route at Fresno and Pasadena.
Formal Ceremony Planned.
Recognizing the importance of the
excursion and the moral effect of such
a. large attendance of "folks from the
home town" In San Francisco on the
date of the formal dedication of the
Oregon building, members of the Panama-Pacific
Exposition Commission yes
terday voted to be present at the ex
ercises in a body and will accompany
the Rosarians on the special trip.
Prince Regent Hofmann said yester
day reports are being received from
many sources showing a widespread
Interest in the proposed trip and it is
his opinion that fully 125 people will
go on the excursion. The affair 13 re
ceiving the hearty support of the busi
ness interests and commercial organi
zations. A. H. Averill, president of the Port
land Chamber of Commerce, yesterday
"I approve of the Rosarian excursion
to California cities. It will indicate
to the thousands of Eastern tourists
in California at that time and to the
Californians themselves that Portland
is in a prosperous condition and that
we refuse to be downcast because of
the European war.
Ronarinna Ate Lauded.
"The Rosarian organization Is a big
advertising asset to Portland the
value of which is hard to estimate in
dollars and cents. I understand they
have never asked the community or its
business men for a cent for their ac
tivities and entertaining expenses of
out-of-town organizations. I was on
the board of governors for the last
Kose Festival and know they taxed
themselves $10 each to pay an expense
, aocount of about $1000 incurred during
the Festival. This was in addition to
their personal expenses, which un
doubtedly were considerably more in
"I am told they have already financed
the $2000 expense of taking the Rosa
rian band on the California trip. The
Rosarians deserve a great deal of credit
for personally financing a matter of
this kind. I know that it is appre
ciated by the commercial organizations
and I hope that Portland's principal
business houses will send representa
tives on this excursion."
The members of the committee on the
personnel of the excursion are Emery
Olmstead, C. C. Colt, H. L. Pittock,
Frank Riggs and W. E. Coman.

75 PER CENT OF BLAZES ATTRIB
UTED TO CARELESSNESS.
Fire Marahal Roberts Tells of 87 Call
So Far this Month, 39 Dae to
Chimneys and Fines.
Declaring that 75 per cent of the
fires in Portland are caused by care
lessness. Deputy Fire Marshal Roberts,
of the Fire Underwriters' Association,
yesterday compiled a series of "don'ts"
calculated to eliminate much of the fire
It is saI4 that during October the

of which were caused by dirty chim
neys, two by children playing with
matches and three from clothing hung
too close to stoves to dry. During the
present month there have been 87 fires,
39 of which were from chimneys or de
Following are some of the "don'ts"
on the list:
When your clothes are wet and you
hang , them up by the stove to dry,
don't get them so close that the heat
from the stove will Ignite them.
Don't throw your ashes in wooden
Don't allow rubbish piles to accumu
late in yards or basements.
Don't leave matches around where
children can get them.
Don't build a large fire in your heat
ing stove or in the furnace and then
go out and lock up the house, hoping
that the fire will keep the house warm.
While you are gone it may get a little
too warm and set the house on fire.
In setting up your heating stove,"
don't place it closer than 15 to 18 inches
from any woodwork, and keep your
stovepipe from eight to 12 inches from
all wooden partitions or walls.
