LARGE HOTELS CROWDED WITH
Railroads Put On Extra Equipment and
Heavy Increases in Arrivals To
day Are Predicted.
Every train into Portland brought
people from far and near yesterday.
Early tn the day hotels had been taxed
to their capacity. They had to begin
turning away guests who had not made
reservations a week before arriving.
Ne'ufer in the history of crowds attend
ing Rose Festivals heretofore has the
rush been so early and great.
In years before the influx set in
about the first day of the festival.
This year it started two days before,
and there has been a steady increase.
Hotel and railroad men alike say that
the crowds are earlier and larger this
festival. The unusually splendid
weather for the carnival has had much
to do in luring the large number of
visitors, as well as the elaborate pro
gramme that has been arranged.
Every railroad, steam and electric,
yesterday put on extra equipment to
handle the heavy traffic to the city.
The crowds that will pour Into Port
land today will swell the myriads.
They can resort to the outlying hotels.
The big hostelries are already filled
and will likely resort to cots in the
halls and nooks, beginning tonight
probably. All of the interurban lines
have borrowed equipment to take care
of the business expected some 25 per
cent larger than that of any festival
The festival committee may find it
necessary, if the demand for housing
continues to increase, to take the mat
ter of finding homes for the unaccom
modated in hand today or tomorrow.

PHILADELPHIA. June 6. The easy
defeat of Miss Edna Wildey, of Plain-
field, N. J., who ranks among the first
three women racquet wieldera of the
country, by Miss Miriam Steever, of
Chicago, was the outstanding feature
of tne opening rounds of the annual
womeu's national lawn tennis champ

the. Philadelphia Cricket Club yester
day. Miss Steever won in straight sets,
Mrs. Robert Leroy, of the West Side

round, being defeated by Miss Dorothy
Disston, of Philadelphia, 6-1. 6-4.
Mrs. Edward Raymond, of the West
Side Tennis Club, New York, and Mrs.
Barger-Wallach, the Newport veteran,
each won her match today in im
The field, although larger than last
year, is not considered as strong,
among the notable absentees being
Miss Mary Browne and Mrs. T. C.
Bundy (nee Miss May Sutton), of the
Calioi'rnia contingent, and Miss Martha
Guthrie, of Pittsburg, who leaped Into
fame by winning a set from Miss Molla
Bjurstedt, the National title-holde in
the semi-final round last year.
Miss Bjurstedt, who added the Penn
sylvania and Eastern states title to
her collection last week, is better this
year than she was last. Under the
rules she does not have to "play
through" the tournament, but in the
opinion of experts no one has appeared
who appears capable of defeating her
in the challenge round.
A thunder storm interrupted play for
half an hour th's afternoon, but despite
this the preliminary round was com'
pleted. nearly all of the first round
disposed of and a good start made on
the men's doubles, substituted this
year for the men's singles, a fixture
of these tournaments for many, seasons.

DIDJA ever notice how carefully and
skilfully a bridegroom is covered
up in an account of a wedding? You
wade thorugh a column about the
bride and her folks, what her mother
wor&, and who served the ices.
Seven hundred words, all adjectives,
it takes to describe her wedding gown,
her going-away gown, and where she
stood when she threw her bouquet.
Another half column is given over to a(
more or less truthful history of her
relations; a list edited, by the family
in which the Mayflower is played up
and Aunt Myrt, of Sugar Creek, and
Uncle Henery, who objects to collars,
are carefully omitted as "among those
Follows then a half column about
the bride's home, and the decorations,
the bridesmaid's frocks, the ringbearers
and the up-rtsings and down-sittings of
the entire personnel except the bride
groom. Scant Mention Suffices. ,
Away down at the end of the whole
account you spy a line or so to the
effect that "the bridegroom comes
from a well-known pioneer family."
Not a word more. Sometimes if he is
nasty and insists on it mention will
be made that he belongs to the Ad
Club. But his position Is negligible. He
is merely a bit of atmosphere for the
event necessary, but like soup, to be
seen and not heard.

inning before the board of directors
of the Chamber of Commerce yester

ordered there from Seattle by Secre
tary Wilson, of the Department of
Commerce, the feeling at Portland is
that nothing is to be accomplisnea
looking toward a settlement pending
the outcome of the session.
Portland Is Most Interested.
The position of Portland employers
Is unusual because the combat between
unions and employers is principally at
San Francisco and on Puget Sound, few
vessels being here, while this city is
probably more vitally interested in the
general outcome as to whether the
scale ultimately adopted will place
Portland on an equality with the other
harbors in the matter of charges. Port
land is high under the existing tariff,
or rather the one in effect previous
to the strike, and the general feeling
is that this port must make a firm
stand against discrimination should a
settlement be effected.
