DAY IS WITHOUT THRILLS
Clialrnian Harding's Oration of
Classic Worth and Complete as
Campaign Docnmcnl Moose
Have More Enjoyment.
CHICAGO, June 7. (Editorial corre
spondence.) When I sit down to write
my impressions of the great National
Republican Convention which met today
and remained in session for two brief
hours, I have a good deal of difficulty
In composing my mind to an orderly
review of its incidents.
The formal proceedings were neither
epoch-making nor stirring, but the
stage picture in Itself was up to the
' great traditions of former years. There
were the same immense crowds, the
surging aisles, playing bands, waving
banners, gold-badged delegates, con
fused press gallery, busy secretaries,
officious sergeants-at-arms. omnipres
ent police and all the colorful and in
teresting details of a historic scene.
But there was no tension. Where, too,
were the great men. such as orna
mented other conventions with their
presence, their oratory, and the actual
display of leadership?
Other Days Contrasted.
No one who has seen or read of other
days will fall to recall that the cheer
ing partisans of distinguished Ameri
cans split their throats when their
favorites entered. The great sons of
great states were conspicuous by their
absence or their silence. Who. too,
does not remember the plumed knight
speech of Ingersol at Cincinnati or the
-rApporaattox introduction of Roscoe
Conklln tor Grant; or the splendid
Imagery of Garfield in his nomination
of Sherman. Or the cross of gold And
crown of thorns climax of William Jen
nings Bryan. Not in a Republican con
vention, however. But Bryan was there
today. Just the same, acting as a re
porter for his paper. The indifference
with which the vast audience viewed
Bryan was illustrative of the new way
of carrying on conventions.
Four years ago when Bryan took his
press seat, the active gallery of re
porters cheered. But today the neg
lected Bryan took his place as a hum
ble news man, his fame unnoticed and
is advent unsung. So it is throughout.
The forms are the same, but the heroes

Thrills Are Lacking.
There was not a thrill from begin
ning to end. except in the wildly en
thusiastic reception of Chairman Har
ding's keynote speech. As a campaign
document everything was there from
preparedness to protection, from the
Democratic tariff failures to Panama
tolls, from wobbly watching to miser
able muddling in Mexico. There was a
liberal sprinkle of -catch phrases .and
eunsent periods and a rather hign
iuality of literary finish throughout.
Perhaps that was what was the matter.
The speech somehow lacked the punch.

T. R.. LOSES VETO POWER
Failure to Announce He Will Not
Support Justice Resnlts In Sit
uation Leaders Admit Slay
Be Beyond Control.
CHICAGO. June 7. More political
leaders are predicting the nomination
of Justice Hughes tonight than at any
time since the Republican National
Convention began to assemble. They
declare that unless the accumulation of
overwhelming circumstantial evidence
falls to reflect the situation' in its true
light, the nomination of the Justice will
come even sooner than has been pre
dicted. The men who take thia view
are practical politicians, who , do not
make estimates unless they are based
on careful canvass of the delegates.
The situation is illustrated best by
the fact that conferences between lead
ers to discuss the availability of differ
ent candidates practically have ceased.
Indicating their belief that a majority
of the delegates already have reached
a decision to name Justice Hughes.
Colonel Loaea Veto Power.
Convention observers find It impossi
ble not to be impressed by the confident
predictions of these leaders, who say
that the Hughes boom now has grown
to such formidable proportions that
Colonel Roosevelt no longer holds the
veto power, which until this afternoon
has been conceded to him as part of
the programme to bring the Republican
and Progressive parties Into accord.
Four days of constant and persistent
effort to bring the two parties to
gether, in which the personality of the
nominee was subordinated to harmony,
failed to bring results desired, and the
trend from the outset was definitely
toward the nomination of Justice
Hughes. Had Colonel Roosevelt an
nounced during this period that he
would not support' the Justice, the
leaders were prepared to turn to any
one of the regular Republican candidates.-
The Colonel remained silent.
however, and because the managers of
other candidacies had fostered the
Hughes boom for the purpose of elim
inating Roosevelt as a possibility, it
grew prodigiously, and even a combi
nation of the favorite sons' strength
was powerless to check it.
Other Booms Fall to Progress.
The reason for this was that the
candidacy of no other Republican made
any progress, and delegates pledged to
favorite sons found no other Presi
dential possibility but Justice Hughes
to whom they could turn their
strength. Justice Hughes thus natur
ally became the choice of practically

Also . Attract Attention.
Eo far as the greater part of the
people of Portland are concerned, the
main attraction of the current Rose
Festival was staged yesterday morning.
It was the annual children's parade
on Grand avenue. Thia event each
year is dearer to the hearts of Port
land people than any other individual
feature in connection with the Fes
tival. Portland's affection ror her children
was amply demonstrated yesterday by
the record-breaking crowd. It is esti
mated by the police and by the Rose
Festival officials that the attendance
was the greatest in the history of the
carnival and this Is the tenth annual.
Weather Is Perfect for Parade.
Another record was broken by the
weather. For the first time in three
or four years it didn't rain or threaten
to rain. It might well be said that the
weather was ideal. If, indeed, not per
fect. The sun was doing a good busi
ness overhead, but a cooling breeze
prevailed, and the Mttle marchers pro
ceeded over the rcute without undue

schools did not appear as units, but
the boys and girls warn, grovpd to

in various parts of town furnished ma
terial for the several groups.
One group, for Instance, marched In
the form of a living flag; another as a
flower garden, presenting roses, violets
and numerous other familiar and popu
lar flowers. Then there was a whole
section of human daisies, and another
of rose girls. ,
Fatrlotle Element Emphasised.
The children were even better drilled
than in previous years. There was
more life and motion to the procession.
The parade was halted at frequent In
tervals and the children were put
through their maneuvers.
The patriotic element, too, was em
phasized more than usual. Nearly half
of the long line was ornamented in
one way or another with a display of

PRESIDENT UNFURLS FLAG
Thousands of Persons Prom All
Parts of Xortltwest Present and
Slot ion Pictures Will Carry
Kvent to Civilization.
The whole world knows that the Co
lumbia River Highway Is open.
If It "doesn't, it ought to. for the
formal opening was proclaimed to the
universe yesterday. Anyway.- every
body soon will know it. for they took
enough pictures motion and other
wise to supply information to every
civilized section of the globe.
. It was a great day for the photogra-
lphers. They were out in force ama
teur and professional alike. Photo
graphically and in every other way the
dedication was a great success.
Falls rictnresque Backareaarf.
The weather was Just right for pic
ture taking and the camera men had a
background to their liking. What
could be more picturesque than the
majestic altitude of Multnomah Falls?
The dedicatory ceremonies took place
on a platform erected In the natural
amphitheater Just below and a little
to one side of the falls.
The photographic batteries were ar
ranged In a series of "trenches" be
yond the platform so that the cameras
could Tilt the figures on the stage and
the falls all In the same shot.
I.ljcfct Good for ' Cameras.
The "trenches" were reserved ex
clusively for the movie men. the news
paper and commercial photographers.
The amateur camera fan had to content
himself with "sniping" his pictures
from any old angle. But the light was
good all around, and the platform pre
sented a constantly changing kaleido
scopic array of attractive views, so
plain and fancy picture taking was In
order all day long.
Consequently, score and scores of
plates were exposed, hundreds of dry
films were unrolled, and who knows
how many thousand feet of motion
picture reels were unwound?
Ceremony Is Bcaotifal.
All of which will add to the fame of
the highway and attract tourists from
near and distant parts to Portland.
Which, indeed. Is one of the prime ob
jects of the highway's existence that
and the enjoyment that It will furntf-h
to the people of Portland themselves.
The ceremony in .connection with
the dedication was beautiful and spec
tacular. It was conceived in poetry
and executed in artistry and grandeur.
The event had been widely heralded
and It attracted people from all over
the Northwest. In fact. It took on a
National significance. Inasmuch as the
final act in the more or less elabo
rate ceremony was performed by Presi
dent Wilson himself, when, at his desk.
In Washington. E. C. he touched an
electric button that released a larg
American flag at the pinnacle of
Crown Point, which marks the highest
elevation on the route.
Thousands Visit Falls.
But the main event was the cere
mony at Multnomah Falls. There It
was that the great crowd had gath
ered to do honor to the highway
builders. A special train brought
thousands of people from Portland, and
long lines cf automobiles carried other
thousands from the city, as well as
from neighboring towns in Oregon.
Washington and Idaho. More than 109
machines came from The Dalles alone.
Scores came from Pendleton and other
Eastern Oregon points.
Queen Muriel and her party went
from Portland on the special train In
the private car of J. D. Farrell. presi
dent of the O.-W. R. Sc. N. Company.
On arriving at the falls the queen and
her attendants attired themselves In
their festival garb.
The first that the public saw of the
queen was when she appeared escorted
by a company of Royal Rosarians on
the little bridge above the lower falls,
that had been erected there through
the philanthropy of S. Benson.
Trumpets Announce Queen.
A blast of trumpets proclaimed the
presence of the queen. The party then
proceeded slowly down the sylvan
paths leading from the chasm be
tween upper and lower falls to the
platform below. The Rosarlan band,
concealed among the evergreens,
played soft music for the march.
Seated below the platform as guests
of honor were Governor Wlthycombe,
A. F. Flegel, the personal representa
tive of President Wilson; S. Benson.
