OREGON EXPOSITION BUILDING,
Ban Francisco, Oct. 22. A day of glo
rious golden sunlight slipped in be
tween the fogs to honor Edison yester
day. It was as if the sun caught the
rumor that the electric lights of San
Francisco, the bay cities and the ex
position were to shine forth in all their
possible radiance in. the great man's
honor, and just made up its mind to
do its biggest and best to show the
wizard a thing or two about illumina
tions. Close to 100,000 people filled the
grounds for the rare privilege of look
ing on this man for it was advertised
that he would not speak and in the
evening 20,000 came where the average
evening attendance is 5000. Never has
such an audience turned out for any
celebrity before and never has there
been such intense enthusiasm. Never
before at the exposition has such af
fection shone In so many faces.
Mr. Edison Is Frond.
Mr. Kdlson looks perfectly well, calm
and placid. He sat quietly by, was at
tentive, but from his expression, hlch
changed only once throughout the
hour's speeches, I imagine he did not
hear a word that was said. Mrs. Ed
ison's expressive. sensitive face
showed her pleasure in adulation of
her husband. She would look from the
speaker to him every now and then
with a prideful, mothering sort of af
fection that made one glad that he
had that kind of a wife. When Presi
dent Moore presented him with the
medal, he smiled pleasantly and
bowed to the audience, but without a
word turned and placed it in Mrs. Ed
Some one has said: "There must
always be a woman at whose feet man
may lay his trophies; else why the
trophies?" If we have formerly
-thought of this man as merely a human
dynamo, a finely adjusted machine, this
one pretty human domestic picture for
ever removes that conception.
Eulogists Happy In Phrases.
John A. Britton, chairman of the
day. in his introduction spoke of Mr.
Edison as "the man of the century,"
who stands on a plane by himself with
no companion in the world of i n
ventors. President Moore was inspired
with many happy phrases in eulogy:
"We are but acolytes swinging the in
cense and the lights in honor of this
great man." He went on to say that
Edison stood for love of men, comfort
fur human beings, advancement, prog
ress, patriotism and humani tariem in
the fullest sense of the word.'
Samuel Insull, the lifelong friend
and for 40 years close associate of Mr.
Edison, made the main speech of the
"So profound was his belief in the
ultimate outcome of his own work that
he not only gave of his brains, ability,
time and energy, but risked every
penny of his own fortune," said Mr.
Insull. "You can't all be Edisons, but
you can exercise the same spirit. He
never sounds the retreat, always the
advance. He doesn't know what it
means to be discouraged; he goes on
until he achieves success, and he does
it with a modesty and simplicity that
endears him to every one."
Loggers Celebrate Day.
Yesterday was also Pacific Logging
day, celebrated in the Hoo Hoo build
ing. The loggers lunched in the Ore
gon building. The evening before the
loggers were banqueted at the Com
mercial Club, when F. C. Knapp, of the
Peninsula Lumber Company of Port
land, represented Oregon in an able
speech. E. T. Allen, of Portland, of
the Forestry Department. was in
charge of one day's session and man
aged a lively discussion of matters di
rectly in his department. J. J. Dono
van, of Belllngham, is president of the
conference, and George M. Cornwall,
of Portland, was secretary.
Mr. Cornwall has been actively try
ing to create the profession of logging
engineer as a distinct profession. The
main discussion, however, was led by
Mr. Langullle, of the J. D. Lacy Com
pany, of Portland. He made a fine
address on the necessity of organiza
tion of all lumbering interests, the
manufacturer, logger, seller, timber
man, etc., where now little or no co

CAPTURED GOODS WANTED
French Manufacturers Ask for Plan
to Recover Machines. .
PARIS, Oct. 3. Manufacturers whose
works have been stripped of machines
by the Germans propose that an offi-t-iol
commission make an inventory of
the machines that have disappeared as
Kiun as may be possible. It is pointed
out by manufacturers that the payment
of an indemnity for the machines will
not be sufficient, since many months,
in ome caes years, will be required to
replace the machinery. Consequently
the French manufacturers will demand
th return of the mtchinej themselves.
These machines they assert, were
not all taken because they were needed
in Germany, but in order to paralyze
the industries of Northern France after
the eventual declaration of peace.

Fairy Palaces Take Form.
In the apparent confusion of yester
day half a hundred fairy palaces were
taking rapid form to receive their dis
plays of manufactured products, rang
ing all the way from raspberry Jelly to
rugs and conduit pipe.
In a model dairy barn in one end of
the great hall a young sculptor was
rapidly putting the last touches on a
life-size statue of a cow, built entirely
out of butter. The sculptor shivered
as he worked, for he was inside a glass
cold storage case, in which the cow is
to be kept throughout the 18 days of the
show. But in spite of the cold, he kept
cheerfully at work, slamming double
handfuls of butter on bossy's frame
and gradually moulding her into the
form of a presentable cow.

'Dry" Bar Arranged.
As one goes from the manufacturers'
hall into the Land Products hall the
first thing that greets the eye is the
1916 soft drink, "no smoking" bar. all
set up and ready for business. While
the bar is the exact counterpart of
the brass-railed bar of the good old
days, there is a "no smoking" sign
at one end and the list of drinks ad
vertised offers nothing more serious
than cider or loganberry juice.
Members of the W. C. T. U. have ex
pressed great Interest in the 1916 bar
and the introduction it offers for peo
pie of Portland to the real merits of
Oregon soft-drink products. They have
announced to Manager Bateham that
they will boost for the bar with all
their might, and that they will come
over in person and set their feet on
the brass rail and contribute to the
earnings of the establishment.
Attendance at the show throughout
its entire run is expected to be far
greater than it was even at the great
show of last year. Returning tourists
from San Francisco are expected to
add an important portion to the daily
attendance, and every measure has been
taken to advertise th eshow at tb
Oregon building in San Francisco and
interest - people who are routed home
through Portland in stopping over for
a few days to visit it.
Extensive Publicity Gtvea.
Returns on the press notices that
have been, sent out indicate that the
Manufacturers' and Land Products
Show has received more publicity in

the papers and magazines of the North
west than any other attraction of its
kind that has ever been held. More
than 1000 columns of space have been
given it in the newspapers of Oregon
and n ashington' alone.
This strong interest that has been
displayed by the press of the Northwest
nas been largely responsible for the
notable co-operation of the counties of
Oregon. Twenty-three counties have-
come in with exhibits, representing the
Dest from the state fair or from county
fairs that they have held.
All of these facts are e-pected to
increase the attendance anc. the man

All those convicted were fully
cognizant of the significance of their
actions. The court went into just this
point with particular care and acquit
ted several co-defendants only because
it believed doubt existed regarding the
cognizance of the punishableness of
their actions. Those convicted knew

"I admit certainly that the motive of
those convicted was not unnoble and
that they acted out of love for the

one opposes the enemy in battle or
whether one commits acts in its inter
est which justly carry with them the
death penalty. Among our Russian
prisoners are several girls who fought
against us in soldier's uniforms. Should
one such have fallen no one would ac

why now that another woman has met

FASHION CALLED TRADITION
Reluctance to Adopt New Methods
in Private Life and Government
Service, Preparedness for War,
Missionary Work Discussed.
'The Grip That Holds" was the topic
of the address yesterday afternoon at
the rally of the State Christian En
deavor Convention in the Sunnyslde
Congregational Church, by Rev. Dan A.
Poling, acting president of the World's
Union. He was introduced to the mass
meeting by Herbert Goode as the Nestor
of the World's Christian Endeavor
movement for temperance and the
spread of the Christian religion. Rev.
Mr. Poling declared that the Portland
Union had gained a great reputation
for doing things under the leadership
of progressive young men.
" 'The Grip That Holds' is my sub
ject here today, suggested to my mtnd

vented me from sliding over a preci

little tree that saved my life. We are

Grip of Tradition Dlacaaaed.
"Fashion holds the women in their
grip. Certain lines hold the business
man in a rut and It Is hard to get out
of that rut. New methods are diffi
cult to adopt. The United States has
been in the grip of tradition, and only
recently the Government gave evidence
of breaking away by a movement to
adopt tbe budget system.
"Europe has been in the grip of the
tradition that great armies make for
peace, and yet that continent is in the
throes of the greatest war ever known.
And in this country there is a move
ment to develop an army of 1.000.000
men on the same principle, the same
tradition that preparedness makes for

better if they would break the habit.

Rev. Mr. Poling pointed to the Chris
tian Endeavor Society as one of the
great factors for leading the world
into new paths. He said it Is grounded
upon the foundation of truth and faith.
"It is trained and equipped for that
purpose." he declared. "It inspires

The speaker pointed out the oppor
tunities of the Christian Endeavor or
ganization, and declared all its depart
ments are equally important and urged
that all committee work be made
equally important. He concluded his
address by saying that the grip that
holas is the grip of Jesus Christ, the
grip of the Christian religion.
