GOVERNOR PROCLAIMS PORTLAND DAY, SEPTEMBER 30, A LEGAL
HOLIDAY, AND MAYOR URGES ITS OBSERVANCE
Governor Chamberlain yesterday issued the following proclamation, making Portland, day, Satur
day, September 30, a legal holiday: i
"When the idea was first conceived of celebrating the 100th anniversary of the expedition of
Lewis and Clark to the Northwest Country, there were many who predicted failure for so gigantic an
enterprise, not a few who entered into the spirit of tle undertaking double! a to the result, and
others whose zeal and enthusiasm as to the propriety of celebrating a great historical event, and at
the same time exploiting the resources of that vast domain embraced within the limits of the Oregon
Country, was so great that they eventually succeeded in arousing the pride and patriotic spirit of the
whole Northwest. Not 6nly the people of Oregon responded liberally to the call for aid, and through
their Legislature appropriated $450,000 to the enterprise, but the several counties of the state and the
cities as well have contributed most generously in money and in effort. -
Animated by the same spirit, not onlyour sister states, whose interests are almost identical with
those of Oregon, but many of the Eastern States, whose citizens had nothing to gain by participa
tion in the Exposition, have done all in their power to make it a success. ,The expectations of our
people have been more than realized, and the Exposition, which is now nearing its close, will go down
in history as one of the most successful ever held in the United States. The citizens of Portland, be
sides vgiing generously of their time and money, have vied with each other in extending hospitality
to Ihe stranger within their gates. The whole of the Northwest has shared in the advantages which
have accrued from the Lewis and Clark Exposition, the beneficial effect of which is already beginning
to be felt by addition to population and wealth.
It is proposed to make one strenuous effort to bring together not only the people of the state, but of
the adjoining states as well, on the 30th day of September, winch has been designated by the Expo
sition management as Portland day. In order that every facility may be given to the people of our
own state to assist in holding a reunion on the day so designated,
i, George E. Chamberlain, as Govejrnor of the State of Oregon, by virtue of the power and authority
in me vested, do proclaim Saturday, the 30th ay of September, 1905, a legal holiday, and I do earn
estly request all of the people of the state to lay aside their ordinary vocations, and to repair to the
Exposition for the purpose of enjoying a day of rest, the ronewal of old acquaintances, and the dis
cussion of those matters arid things which will tend to the greater advancement of the magnificent com
monwealth in which we live.
In tostimon whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name as Governor of the Slate of Oregon,
at the Capitol in the City of Salem, and have caus?d the great seal of the state to be affixed this 23d
day of Soptomber, A. D., 1005. .

To the People of the City of Portland Greeting: Whereas, Saturday, September 30, has been

Whereas, The same day has been declared a legal holiday by His Excellency George E. Chamberlain,
Governor of Oreeon. for the purpose of celebrating: "Portland day" at said Exposition, and
Whereas, The City of Portland has gained much profit to itself, and great credit in the eyes of the

Several weeks ago a few of the bold j
KxposiUon officials had the temerity to ,
predict that the attendance on
day weutd reach the 100.000 mark, and not
Ma' people thought that it was even
poedhte. Bat now even the most skepti
cal are inclined to believe that the ad
m!flioa will total 104,000. and there are
those who are predicting a greater at
tendance. Enthusiasm Throughout Coast.
The outlook warrants seemingly rash
predictions for the success of Portland
day. Never before has there been such
enthusiasm aroused among the people of
the Northwest over a coming event at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition. Near
ly all the cities interested in the Fair
are working in a common effort to boost
Portland day. and make it stand alone
as an event untouched in the annals of
The many Portland lirms are going to
furnish their employes with tickets to
the Exposition. Every day arms make
applications for admission tickets, not
passes, to present to their employes. Most
of the working people of Portland, or a
vers large porcontage of them, will be
provided with tickets for their wires as
well as themselves.
The question is being asked as to
whother Portland will be able to entortaln
alt the strangers that will flock into this
elty on Portland day. No trouble is an
ticipated in this respect, as thjfr Rose City
has demonstrated this Summer that she
can accommodate all who come.
Can Busily Handle Crowds.
The Exposition will experience no 41 fa
culty should the 100.000 mark be passed.
The management has had no trouble in
handling the crowds on previous "red
letter" days. To provide against any
great congestion at the gates admission
tickets have bn placed on sale in many
of the Portland stores. Those who And it
convenient are requested by the manage
ment to buy tickets before leaving the
down-town districts for the Fair. The
turnstiles can handle the crowds as fast
as they come.
It has been practically decided to have
only one pass gate at the Exposition on
the Mg day. and it is thought that it is
all that will be needed. The other pass
sates will be converted Into paid admis
sion cates. If. there are any passholders
who have declined to pay their way into
the Exposition on Portland day. they are
few and far between ami are keeping ex
tremely quiet about their determination
not to follow the crowd.
Fine Programme Arranged.
?hc programme that Is being arranged
for the greatest day in the history of the
Northwest will surpass that even of the
opening day. The day will open with a
National salute of 21 guns early in the
morning. There has been so much speech
making at the Fair that only brief exer
cises of this nature will be held. The ex
ercises will be held in the bandstand at
the foot of Lakeview Terrace in the
morntng. There will also be an airship
race in the morning between the Gelatine
and the City of Portland.
In the afternoon there will be a magnifi
cent purade. the equal of which has never
been witnessed in the West, which will be
participated in by all the state and cities
of Importance on the Paoiiic Coast. The
states and cities will be represented by
beautiful and costly floats. Many other
features for this particular event are be
ing planned. Following the parade of the
states and cities will come a full-dross re
view of the Oregon National Guard.
Japanese Day Fireworks.
All during the afternoon the visitors
will bo treated to Japanese day fireworks, 1
which made such a hit on Japan day at
the Exposition. The airships will also
make nights in the afternoon, provided, of
course, they get back from their morning
The battle of Manila will bo fought out
tweon the Americans and the Spaniards t
on Guild's Lake at night, which will sur- ,
pass by far all or the other- sham naval :
battles that have been produced at the '
Exposition. Not one or two, as has usual
ly beon tho case, but fully half a dozen
battleships will be blown to pieces and
burned in full view of the spectators.
Besides the sham battle there will be a
grand display of fireworks, which, like
the other special events of Portland day,
will be the greatest ever Been at the Ex
position. Many other events are being
planned for the 100,000 or more visitors of
Portland day, and will be announced later.

The suit of the Pacific Mill Company
of Honolulu against Innrfin, Poulsen &
Company, to recover $163,000 for al
leged breach of contract, was before
Judge Sears yesterday on a motion to
file an amended answer.
A number of years ago Inman. Poul
sen Sz Company sent representatives to
Honolulu, where they met members
of the Pacific Mill Company, and as a
result of negotiations arrangements
were made to ship lumber to the Ha
waiian Islands from Portland, and to
enlarge the business of the Pacific
Mill Company. For various reasons,
the deal was declared off, and this suit
followed. It was tried In Judge Sears'
court and occupied three weeks'
time. A nonsuit was granted and the
Supreme Court reversed the lower
court and sent the case back for an
other trial. H. M. Cake, attorney for
Inman, Poulsen & Company, yesterday
argued a motion to amend the answer
and set up fraud in the making- of the
contract. Ralph R. Dunlway, for plain
tiff, vigorously opposed the motion, and
the court took the matter under advisement.
