Queen Muriel's royal barge, from

Friday afternoon and hold a mid

controlling the Diamond O fleet.
Inasmuch as the Omaha is some

length, as well as beam, boasting also
a double house aft, arrangements for
erecting an elaborate throne for her
royal highness are under way, and the
stately chair, being elevated at such

Introduced him to King Joy and to the
J Queen-elect and the Mayor stowed the
key to the city, which he waa lo de
liver to the Queen later on in the pro
gramme with two red-headed and wide
eyed pages in the automobile behind
and the procession was off again north
along Fourth street, while the growing
crowd poured along beside it and ap
plauded with swelling intensity.
Sergeant H. A. Thatcher was not
leading the parade with his mounted
squad, as of old. but rode in the police
automobile, with Captain Mooe. the
fellow veteran with whom he had as
sisted in policing all the parades in
Portland since the memory of man.
Queen LlBhta Broadway.
There was no roping off of the
streets, but a Joyfully informal sway
ing in and out of the crowd onto the
pavement, while Motorcycle Policemen
Bales and Coneter scuttled in aavanco
and kept them from delaying the
progress of the imperial cortege.
So np to Broadway and Washington,
and then the first brilliant sensation
of the evening was flashed.
The Queen's car stopped and Presi
dent Dundore assisted Muriel to alight.
She crossed to the big Sacajawea pil
lar on the west side of the street.
Muriel. under guidance of Pierre
Traglio, head decorator of the Festival,
pressed a button.
, "D-l-i-lang! D-l-l-l-lang!" went a
call bell somewhere Inside of the pil
lars which simulated genuine onyx.
Rese Curtain Flares.
Then one, two. three, half a dozen
blocks leaped into a blaze of jeweled
lights, the great crowns and canopies
at the street Intersections flared in cir
clets of lights, the opalescent globes
on top of the procession electroliers
all the way up Broadway bloomed Into
iridescent bubbles of variegated light,
and sheer across the streets, far up
where the entrance of the Festival
Center lies, the great rose curtain sud
denly flared out of the dusk.
The crowd swept toward the Festival
Center on the wave of its own ap
plause and enthusiasm and the police
in the lines about the throne at West
Park and Madison were hard put to
it to find places in which to pack all of
the subjects of the Rose Empire that
began to pour In.
The Rosarian band halted In front
of the throne, with a final blare of
music that sent hundreds of birds
wheeling from their rerches overhead.
From the dais on which the throne
was raised one could look out for
blocks over a garden of human faces,
surmounted with brilliant dashes of
the color of women's millinery and.
lighted in the glow from the chain
of incandescent globes that threaded
in and out among the branches above.
Crowd Siever Larcrer.
Never did a Festival Queen come to
her throne surrounded by a greater
throng of subjects.
Like fairies in their filmy dresses of
pink, the little dancing girls from
Fernwood School, directed by Alice
Ryan, saluted the Queen-elect with,
their wreaths of roses as she descend
ed from her car and was escorted to
the throne. The leaders of the classes
from all of the Portland schools
formed another corps of flower girls
who tossed rosebuds in the path of the
advancing royal party.
With pages supporting her train.
Muriel was escorted to tho throne by
King Joy. President Dundore and Mayor
Behind her came the maids of honor,
and swung into tableaux on either sirio
of the throne with the Rose Festival
directors behind them.
