J. H. Flsk, the mineralogist, has made
'the following recommendation to C. B.
Wade, David Raffety and F. "Williams,
who compose the committee on mines and
mining of the Lewis and Clark Exposition,
In regard to an exhibit of Oregon miner
als: "In compliance -with your request for
euch Information as I may have .relating
to the various metal-hearing ores and min

collection for the same, I beg to say that
In addition to those various minerals men

In making the collection. 2o collection of
this nature has ever yet been made, and
as there is now an opportunity for doing
so, and funds for the purpose, I can see no
reason why it should not be accomplished,
and when our 1SG3 Fair is over they will
form a good nucleus for a State Museum.
"As for the St. Louis part of the collec
tion, only three months of this year re
main In which traveling In the mountains
is feasible to make the collection.
"In order to insure success, I would rec
ommend that a thousand letters be sent
out at once to all parts of the State, solic
iting Information regarding the location of
these minerals and commercial products,
and Invited co-operation In their collection,
and not pack them out of the mountains
on snowshoes, as was done by the World's
Fair Commission in Chicago in 1S93.
"I have on my desk a small pamphlet
Issued by the Illinois Central Railroad
Company, entitled the 'Industrial Sites In

On Tuesday at 8:30 A. 1L the delegates,
accompanied by their wives, will leave
for a trip to The Dalles and return. The
druggists of Portland are extending this

ness of tho session will be completed. The
