bles Are Attractive.
Roses of every known hue burgeoned
forth their beauty yesterday at the
twenty-third annual exhibition of the
Portland Hose Society, on the second
floor of the new Meier & Frank
building-, at Fifth and Alder streets.
There were almost 500 exhibits by 92
exhibitors. The big space reserved for
the showing', which extends' the full
length of the block, took on the ap
pearance of a huge rose garden. Sev
enty silver cups were given as prizes.
The thousands of perfect blossoms
delighted the hearts of the rose fan
ciers who make up the membership
of the society. The general public,
admitted during the afternoon and last
night until 10 o'clock, were loud in
expressing their admiration.
The big room was a riot of color,
with the delightful perfume of the
flower filling the whole floor. Despite
weather not favorable to the develop
ment of the best blossoms this sea
son, a gorgeous and immense collec
tion of roses is on display.
Joseph Rom Elected King.
A beautiful pink Joseph Hill was
elected the king of the whole show
by tfte judges. Choosing the best
single blossom from all the thousands
of beautiful roses on display was
plainly a difficult task. The judges
wavered ' for a time in favor of a big
red Dixon, but finally, because of the
perfection of the blossom, the award
was made to the Joseph Hill, exhibited
by Miss Martha Chapin.
Baskets of roses, arranged with a
fine artistic taste, are particularly at
tractive, while bouquets in vases and
bowls are almost equally so. The
Caroline Testout section is strong,
with many flowers shown. There are
many splendid red-roses, which are
strong favorites. Unusual flowers, of
which Irish Elegance is an example,
being a fairy-like single rose, are
A special exhibit was made of deco
rated tea tables and this also attracted
much attention. Decked with small
roses and given an added touch of
daintiness by the addition of bows of
tulle, they were most attractive. The
winning table, arranged by Mrs.
Thomas Gray, was decorated with
Dorothy Perkins and Cecil Brunner
roses, and on that given second prize
Cecil Brunners were featured.

With the exception of last week's
fireworks display at the Oaks, this
figure is said never to have been
equaled in Portland for a 40-minute
exhibition of pyrotechny.
Among the more unique features
will be a portrait in fire of the queen
herself. For several days HItt Bros,
have worked on this feature from a
basis of a number' of photographs of
Battles to Be Reproduced.
The war has naturally given a bat
tle tinge to some of the more con
spicuous set-pieces, the premier of all
being entitled "The Battle . of the
Dardanelles." This involves the use
of a miniature battleship, which is
torpedoed and shelled after she has
destroyed fort after fort. The use of
modern weapons of warfare is shown
by aeroplanes and submarines, all de
picted in flashing flame.
There will be several scores of the
terrible lyddite bombs, which travel a
mile high before they explode. The
blinding flash these bombs cause was
seen at the display last year 50 miles

as each set of dancers finished, they
fell into position on either side of the
throne, around which the Rosarians
were already drawn up in two im
posing lines, each adding a new sweep
of color to the tableaux the master
of ceremonies was constructing.
In the street before the platform

who had participated In the parade of
the morning, to give the rose drill on
which he had been training them for
Rose blossoms, handled "Indian-club-
wlse," was the feature of their drill,
and the dazzling whirl of pink blos
soms made a striking picture. Then
the Rose Girls fell back and formed a
group reaching across the entire ex
panse before the platform.
The shepherdesses from Fernwood
School, under direction of Miss Ryan,
were the first to appear on the plat
form and, after their dance was over,
they ranged in front of the line of
Rosarians about the throne.
Oriental Color Provided.
Rose City Park's Japanese lantern
girls gave their dainty little drill and
fell into position in front of the
shepherdesses, forming a sweep of
bright yellow costumes against the
white and pink of the other group.
Their dance was directed by Misses
Duck and Creighton.
Hawthorne School added a group of
dainty Japanese girls in costumes of
blue to the picture. Their dance was
led by Vivian Michael.
Ladd School contributed to the fete
a group of girls in white sailor suits,
who danced the hornpipe and set the
crowd to cheering uproariously at the
end by a flourish of little American
flags at the end sof the dance. They
were led by Miss Joanna Cramer.
Then came the tandem dance by the
tiny boys and girls from Shattuck
School. Little girls pranced on the
platform, tossing white manes of tissue.
They were driven in tandem teams by
serious, round-faced little chaps in red
liveries and shiny boots, who rounded
them up at the close of the dance for
a sportsmanlike salute before the
throne. The feature was worked out
especially for the coronation fete under
the direction of Miss Adena Llbak.

Finally, Mr. Olmstead and Mr. Powers

One of the prettiest little touches
in the ceremony was the strewing of
roses before the queen by fairies from

Southern Douglas Highway Surveyed

ONLY FOUR MONTHS AGO PORTLAND'S INFLUENTIAL MORNING NEWSPAPER
EDITORIALLY DECLARED CONCRETE ROADS WOULD LAST 100 . YEARS
HERE is-probably the strongest and most convincing indorsement of Concrete roads ever printed
in the State of Oregon. Note that it not only indorses concrete as a paving material, but urges
upon Benton County the wisdom of laying concrete roads. Says the editorial: "Such a road,
properly graded and drained, would have lasted, with moderate annual repairs, for 100 years."
This is so much stronger than anything we have ever permitted ourselves to say about concrete that
it fairly takes our breath away !
Yet Tuesday morning The Oregonian editorially inferred that concrete roads are an experiment.
Contrast that with four months ago : "Roman roads of similar character, built by the Emperors, have
endured for 2000 years."
When a paper so ably edited and with such high standing as The Oregonian forgets its own utter
ances m the short space of four months, isn't it rather confusing for that paper's readers?
Thinking that what was so good for Benton County four months ago would be good for Multnomah
County now, thousands of residents of this county took The Oregonian's tip and demanded concrete
roads. Would The Oregonian have them jump back over the fence? We ask you!
