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 held heretofore. 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.

Opening Rounds of Anual Tourney at Philadelphia In Interrupted by Thunder Storm. 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 ionships tournament on the courts of the. Philadelphia Cricket Club yester day. Miss Steever won in straight sets, 6-0. 6-2. Mrs. Robert Leroy, of the West Side Tennis Club, was one of the New York ers, who was eliminated in the first 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 pressive fashion. 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.

KING'S JOB ABOUT AS BIG AS THAT OF BRIDEGROOM Contrast Made of Attention Paid Muriel and Apparent Ignorance of Peo ple as to Arrival of Her Consort Personality Wins Interviewer. BY LEONE CASS BAER. i 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 present." 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. There'd be a great howl go up if he wasn't there but otherwise he is a mere detail. Well, that's the way with Festival Kings. At least it "is with King Til Taylor-Joy. He sneaked Into town quietly ounoay evening. ma been up to Salem with a guest for the state's bastile and en route back he and Mrs. Taylor yes there's a Mrs. Taylor stopped off to King awhile in HIGHWAY DEDICATION FROM MEDICAL ALUMNI MEET CLINICS HELD BY UNIVERSITY OF OREGON GRADUATES.

I dropped over to see 'em yesterday afternoon and found them in an undecorated bower. Not a rose' was to be seen save a weary little bunch a personal friend had sent. The Queen -had walked on roses, eaten 'em, slept on a bed of 'em her rooms look like a garden, you've read of her smile, her hair, her teeth, the size of her shoe and her aim in life. And the King hadn't a rose to his name. All Attention for O,oeen. His eagle-eye and rosy cheeks, his outdoor bigness and democratic ways, his Infectious hearty laugh and in teresting ideas of life in his Western country were all shut in by the four walls with no one to see, but his wife and me. while mobs fell all over each other and brothers -became foes in their efforts to see the Queen. Downstairs in the dining-room they have a Muriel soup and a Muriel ice and when she and her attendants came in the diners peeked and craned and gulped food in an effort to see. (And all the time the King was sitting quietly there. chatting over dinner with his attractive wife and was almost killed in the rush to see the Queen). He is really very gallant, however. and has a good-natured big laugh for everything. "Never worry"' is King Til-Taylor-Joy's motto and lie bears every hall-mark of living -up to it. He confesses that he was a bit diffident about accepting the job of kinging, but listened to friends and obliged. He wouldn't want a. similar position for a steady vocation, however. "Not for mine," he says. "I'd rather be Sheriff of Umatilla County, with my good friends and pals about me, living no own happy outdoor Western life, than be in the boots of any old monarch who ve-2ionarched." And he means it. STRIKERS PRESENT THEIR SIDE OF CASE Chamber Arbitrators, How ever, Wait for Conference at San Francisco Today. ONE CLASH IS REPORTED Crew of Steamer Kellogg Resists Attempt to Rush Them and for Few 3Ioment Lively Battle I Fought Out at Dock. Labor Interests that figure In the existing strike troubles here, and which extend along the entire Coast, had their inning before the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce yester day, representatives of the longshore men and steamboat workers having presented their version of the dispute. In advance of another meeting tenta tively arranged, no action was taken by the Chamber. In the main the directors have be come fully informed as to the situation, a meetinir Monday with employers of the 'deepwater and river fleets having been productive of a general presen tation of their side of the case and vesterdav the union men spoke of tea tures leading to the walkout and the position of the men they represent as to the wage scale and working condi tions. The discussion yesterday occu pied about an hour and a half. Because of the meeting scheduled to take nlaca at San Francisco today be tween the executive committee of the Pacific Coast District International longshoremen's Association and the Waterfront Employers' union, wnn Henry M. White. United States com' mlssioner of Immigration, who was 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. The steamer Bowdoin discharged 1000 barrels of asphalt - yesterday, part of It at Alblna dock and the remainder at Couch-street dock. The scale de manded had been offered longshore men to work the ship, but refused, so Joe Pratt, stevedore for the Parr McCormack line, assisted by two mates from the vessel, handled the cargo on the docks and the sailors hoisted It from the hold. .A number of longshore men watched operations in a good- natured way at both docks and did not place any obstacles in the path of the worker. At the Southern Pacific dock a non union gang put in the second day load ing lumber aboard Barge No. 41 for Alaska and the men were not molested. The lonshoremen had pickets sta tioned nearby, pitching horseshoes and other such nastimrs being indulged in by the watchers at times to relieve the monotony. Strikers Rnsh Crew. Among the union steam boatmen only one scrimmage was reported, that hav ing taken place at Municipal Dock No. 2. at the foot of East Washington street, where the steamer Joseph Kel logg was discharging freight at about 3 o clock and several strikers are al leged to have rushed the crew, but the crew claims the victory. Capstan bars and other deck gear in tho hands of the Kellogg's crew were brought into plar, and It is said the strikers were routed from the dock. One of their number, who gave his name as Bert usoorne, a fireman, ran into the arms of Patrolman L. Stone, who escorted him to the station and his release was obtained on 85 bail, the charge being HOXOLTJIiAX FOR ANTIPODES Liner Goes South A Tier Return! From Voyage to Vladivostok. On the completion of her present vojage, she being now on the way to Vladivostok with Puget Sound cargo, the American-Hawaiian steamer Hono lulan will return to the Washington harbor and there be turned over to the Union steamship line for a voyage from British Columbia to New Zealand or Australia and return to Honolulu being redelivered to her owners at the narDor after wblch she was named. Whether another engagement then will be made depends on -changes mean while having to do with a return of .normal trade on the Panama Canal route. Charters made last month do not show an alarming decrease in freights, as the Japanese steamer Kenyon Maru formerly the Verona, which is know here, was fixed by the Canadian Pa cific to operate for a year between British Columbia and the Far East at 42s 6d a ton on the deadweight, and Frank Waterhouse & Co. rechartered the Japanese steamer Kifunosan Maru from Hind, Rolnh & Co. at 810.50 ton on the deadweight for one round trip' and a half, delivery at San Fran cisco and redelivery at Moji. STEAMER BOWDOIV GOING EAST Speculation as to Whether Vessel Is to Be Sold on Atlantic. When the steamer Bowdoin, now here dlshcarglng cargo from San Francisco, is loaded with lumber her crew expect her to proceed to Mazatlan as the first leg of a long journey, for on discharg ing there it is reported she will pro ceed to the Canal and gain the Atlan tic, with Mobile as her objective point. Later she goes to a coffee port to load for the return to the Pacific. Prices have been high for steam schooner types, not alone among ves sel owners of Eastern states, but Scandinavian owners have taken some of them.

In that connection it is reported from San Francisco that the com pany, will continue exclusively in the psa- senger service so long as the longshore men's strike continues, not Intending to employ non-union workers. with a resumption of good weather the old British convict ship Suocess is again figuring in news Items.' her latest move being from Port Townsend to Port An geles, where she wilt be exhibited for a time. The vessel was here last Summer and attracted widespread attention. District Forecaster Beals issued a state men yesterday to the effect tho river will rise at Portland today, coming up slowly. but is expected to make rapid gains during tne remainder or tne week.
