THE sinking In the Aegean Sea by
a German submarine of the British
transport Royal Edward with heavy
loss of life has shattered the proud
tradition of the British navy of hav
ing transported hundreds of thousands
of men across the sea without the de
struction of one troop-laden ship.
On two previous occasions transports
have been attacked. The Wayfarer was
torpedoed by a submarine in the Irish
Sea. but the vessel was not sunk, and
only five lives were lost. The Manitou
was attacked by a Turkish torpedo
boat in the Aegean Sea, and, although,
the ship waa not damaged, 5 lives

OREGON EXPOSITION BUILDING,
San Francisco, Aug. 17. If a day, a
seUing, an atmosphere and a spirit had
been selected out of the universe pur.
posely to honor that great-hearted
gentleman, Simon Benson, nothing bet
ter could have been planned than that
which actually made history at the
There were the glorious burst of
sunshine which banished the fogs early
this morning; the magnificent automo
bile parade; the Inspiring and lofty
ceremonies in the heaven-sent Court of
Abundance; President Moore's lunch
eon, where so many distinguished men
who met to honor our great citizen
were abashed by the very simplicity of
greatness; the informal reception in
the Oregon building in the afternoon.
when such throngs pressed in to take
him by the hand that Commissioner
Logan in sheer protection of our guest
had finally to break up the receiving
line; and at the close there was the
brilliant formal reception In the even

was turned into an enchantment of
woodland beauty, all fern and flr em
braced, and lighted by hundreds of
Thousand Attend Reception.
At this reception more than 1000 per
sons did honor to our first citizen. The
day was a long succession of beautiful
Everyone wanted to add honor to
honor. The band from the battleship
Oregon played all the afternoon in the
balcony and the reception room was
one great glory of blossom and green
ery, roses and tiger lilies being sent
in huge quantities by Mrs. Eleanor
Martin, Oregon's loyal friend. It will
never be possible to give all the names
of people here, but distinguished guests
from all over Oregon and from many
states and countries thronged the
building. C. N. Ravlln, manager for
the clay, certainly achieved distinction.
Parade Moves to Grounds,
In the parade to the grounds, occu
pying the first car were Simon Benson.
Commissioner Logan. D. O. Lively and
Governor Wlthycombe; in the second,
Samuel Hill, Amos Benson, Mrs. Alice
Benson Beech, Miss Georgie Benson and
John B. Yeon; in the third. Miss Clara
Simon, Merle Simon and Sam Simon;
in the fourth, ex-Senator Simon and
his party; next came Mrs. John F. Lo

T. B. Connell of Grants Pass, and
Charles A. Adams of San Francisco; in
other cars .were Mr. and Mrs. Frank

President Kerr of Oregon Agricultural
College, George M. Hyland, N. R.
Moore, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Holt, and
many other well-known Oregontans.
- Arriving at the Court of Abundance
those named found places on the plat
form, where they were welcomed by
President Moore, of the exposition, and
Arthur Arlett, representing the Gov
ernor of California. The exposition
band furnished the music, and in the
most beautiful setting in the world,
with fountains playing, birds flying
about overhead, flowers everywhere,
and before an audience that filled every
seat, the ceremonies of the day took
Honor Given In Time.
D. O. Lively, the chairman, spoke elo
quently of Oregon and of his pride in
being a citizen of that state. He said
Oregonians were a peculiar people In
that they gave honor where honor was
due, or, as the Irishman put it, "be
stowed the bouquet while riie nose was
still warm to receive it" It was in
keeping with the spirit of the people
to have selected as their "first citizen"
a man foremost in civic accomplish
ments. Mr. Lively added.
President Moore said, in part:
"We of California, are a neighbor to
Oregon and a friend to Oregon. We
are pleased that Oregon in naming her
first citizen' maintains her record of
'Oregon first.' We have had many
great days, extolling great exhibits and
great men; beyond all exhibits that
glorify the exposition city; beyond art,
beyond science, beyond beauty of land
scape or coloring; way, way beyond all
else is the human exhibit. It is In
line with our policy to exalt the hu
man; it honors the whole state to honor
such a man as Simon Benson, who has
graciously permitted us this honor. It
is symbolic of the citizenship of Oregon.
Day la Inspiration to Citizenship. .
"I do not need to eulogize Mr. Benson.
The fact that he has been selected is
sufficient proof of his right to the
place of honor, and this day will b
