Portland Pays Its Farewell.
Portland turned out to pay a last
farewell even as Portland has turned
out from the first day in support of
its great enterprise. From all over the
state came the thcongs to witness the
end; and every point on the Coast was
represented in the vast multitude that
Hooded the grounds from morning until

Further information may be ob
tained from the Daily Official Pro
gramme. well into the next morning. It was a
gathering second only in proportions
to that which assembled on Portland's
own day. There were little more than
half as many people there on opening
day, for the Exposition did not mean
so much then. It had not become en
deared to all by pleasant associations
by a realization of its vast import
nnce in the development of an empire
on the Pacific.
When the -End Came.
The end came at midnight, with a scene
that words can but poorly describe. Al
though a heavy rain was falling, thou
sands stood the wetting and waited for
the vital hour. At ten minutes of the
hour President H. W. Goode, Governor
Chamberlain, Mayor Lane and a large
party of prominent citizens and Exposi
tion officials entered the bandstand on
Gray's boulevard. The band played a
medley of patriotic American airs, which
brought forth prolonged volleys of cheer
ing. Then Governor Chamberlain was in
troduced. In a few well-directed words
he congratulated the people of Portland
and of the Coast for the great success
they had achieved, and In passing, eulo
gized President Goode and those who had
been actively interested in shaping the
destinies of the Exposition. Mayor Lane
spoke in a similar vein, and expressed
particular delight in the fact that the
Fair should end in the midst of a good
old Oregon rainstorm.
Watch tlie Minutes.
Then there came a pause, a breathless
pause, during which there was a nervous
consulting of watches. The -minute hands
pointed to four minutes of -midnight; then
to three, then to one. The" life of the
great Exposition was swiftly ebbing away.
It was now but a matter of seconds. The
hush was that of a death-chamber.
President Goode arose slowly to pro
claim the end. It .was ten seconds away.
"The greatest honor that has ever come
into my life or that ever will was "that
of declaring this Exposition open," he
said; "I now officially declare the Lewis
and Clark Centennial Exposition at an
Plays Auld Lang Syne.
Even as he spoke the lights faded into
a "barely perceptible glow. The end had
bee"n executed -as well as It had been
planned. The band struck up that most
effective of farewell greetings, "'Auld
Lang Syne," and thousands of voices
joined with the music
It was some rainutes before explosions
proclaimed that Admiral Huber's navy
was meeting Its fate. The six big ves'
sels of the squadron were sent to the
bottom of Guild's Lake In as many
minutes. The superstructures and debris
of the vessels burned until nearly day
break, lighting up the entire surface of
the lake west of the Bridge of Nations
This spectacular event was attended by
a brilliant display of fireworks, ending
with the firing of a set piece bearing
te legend 'Goode Night." The grounds
were practically clear of peojrie by 1
o'clock, although stragglers were passing
through the exits .as late as 2 o'clock.
Proves Fitting Climax.
The last day of the Exposition proved a
fitting climax throughout. The order of
the day went off without a hitch, and
while every special feature was witnessed
by large crowds, it Is doubtful if the at
tendance would have been affected with
no special programme. The opening of
the gates in the morning found a crowd
in line for admission, and people contin
ued to enter the grounds up to a very few
minutes of the closing exercises. The en
tire city seemed intent on taking" -a 'part
ing survey of the Exposition.
The exhibit buildings were the center of
interest, probably because the average
person had spent previous trips to the
F4ir in search of lighter amusement and
wished to see more of the substantial
things at the Fair. Every exhibit build
ing was crowded to its capacity all after
noon, and special details of guardsmen
were required to prevent jams that xrdght
have resulted in injury to some.
No Disorder to 3Iar Fair.
It is a matter of felicitation that there
were no disorderly scenes. Order pie
vailed' at all times; no regrettable inci
dents were recorded. In fact, the Exposi
tion has been remarkably free from dls-"
order of all sorts from the day of opening.
"While the Exposition is officially at an
end, the gates will be open for two weeks
to come. Today they will open at 1
o'clock for the afternoon and evening.
The exhibits and nearly all of the state
buildings will remain closed, but the Mu-
soum of Fine Arts will be kept open until
6 P. M. The Ellery Boyal Italian Band
will make Its final appearance In a grand
sacred concert in the Gray boulevard be
ginning at 3. P. M.

BRILLIANT GATHERING AROUND
W York BuIIiHdk for I,nt Time
Echoed Word of ExpoMi
The last social evont of the Exposi
tion was a dinner given In the New
York building last night by the board
of directors in honor of President
Goode anq the other Exposition offi
cials. About 63 covers were laid and
it was a fitting climax to the many
brlllla.it functions that have occurred
during the Fair season.
Theodore B. Wilcox, representing the
board of directors, presided as toast
master and brief remarks were made
by Governor George E. Chamberlain,
on behalf of the State of Oregon; Mayor
Harry Lane, for the City of Portland;
H. W. Scott. Colonel Henry Dosch, di
rector of exhibits'; Secretary Henry E..
Reed and Oskar Hubor, director of
wo r Its.
All of the speakers expressed gratifi
cation at the success of the Fair finan
cially and otherwise and made special
reference to the narmonlous relations
that have existed between all who havp
been connected with it. Several referred
to the late Henry W. Corbett, who
gave the Exposition its first impetus
and at the suggestion of Mr. Wilcox the
guests stood and drank a toast to the
memory of Mr Corbett. Prosident Goode
complimented his staff of officers on
the splendid service renderod and
closed by saying that after all that may
be told about the Exposition the state
ment that Includes it all is "the people
"of Oregon have doliverod the goods."
While this dinner was in progress,
Mrs. Goode entertained the wives of the
Exposition directors in the same build

When John A. McCall, the "poor" presi
dent of New York Life, read in the
-report of the insurance investigation
that his sturdy competitor, the Mu
tual, paid Its chief officer' .$150,000 a
The financial affairs of the Lewis and Clark Exposition present a truly remarkable aspect, as
shown bya report issued yesterday by Exposition Auditor "W. K. Mackenzie.
Although the Exposition closed after midnight with the sum of $180,000 on hand the report in
question shows that not until August 1 was the enterprise clear of debt. The net results are just
double what was estimated at the beginning of the Exposition period. On the total receipts of stock
subscribed over 200 per cent has been realized. ',
The report iu question shows that the total from stock subscriptions was $403,227.50. From its
admissions, concessions and ther sources of revenue the Exposition has realized the sum of
$1,04590.05, making a grand total of $1,445,617.55.
The total disbursements up to yesterday morning at S o'clock were $1,2SS,0S7.64, leaving the total
amount of cash on hand at that time $160,529.91. Auditor Mackenzie, after making careful' estimates
from the attendance of yesterday stated that at least $20,000 additional would be taken in, thus raising
the snrplus to approximately $180,000. , ,
. The record of receipts by days shows a very great fluctuation during the first portion of the
Exposition. On the opening day of the Fair tho sum of $18,075.75 was taken in. The Very next day
the receipts amounted to but $1887. That was the smallest amount taken in for one day during the'
Fair. July 4 proved one of the largest days from a financial standpoint, the sum of $26,944.45 being
deposited to tho Exposition's credit in consequence. The great day of the entire Exposition, how
ever, from the standpoint of revenue, was Portland day. On that occasion the Exposition profited to
the extent of $38,049.77.
Auditor Mackenzie's statement of disbursements shows that the $1,28S;QS7.64 expended, includes
all costs of building, payrolls, music, special events and attractions. One of the heavy items of ex-
pense hasSaecn music. Two full brass bands havp played daily concerts. These bands have been the
best obtainable in America and thTcos of their maintenance is regnrded as money well spent.
While the Exposition opened its gates on June 1 with a deficit there has been little doubt since
the first month that it Avould finally be a. great financial success. 'During the Summer the attendance
like the financial returns, fluctuated, experiencing slight ups and downs. With the latter part of July
heavy attendance commenced. On August 1 the Exposition found itself free of-debt with two months'
and-14 daj's to run on. The" outcome speaks volumes for itself.
The manner in which Auditor Mackenzie has handled the affairs of his department is receiving
much favorable comment at this time. The records show that there have been no errors or losses of
any kind, which is regarded as a remarkable record in new of the fact that the department had to be
bastily organized, leaving little time for the selection of an experienced 'office force. Efforts to
induce local banks to attach experts to the department for the Summer were unsuccessful and the
force that'handled the affairs of the office was independently recruited from the best available material.
year, what must have been his mo
tions? Mr. McCall's heart was probably sufr
fused with a certain sympathy, for he
knows all the trials and dcprlvatlorvs
incident to an Insurance president'
Job, the constant planning and man
aging that are necessary, to make the
stipend go as far as possible, and per
haps lay by a little something for a
rainy day. He knows, too, that out of
thatf' $150,000 Mr. McCurdy must pay
back a very large sum In premiums on
his own Insurance, for a full quarter
of Mr. McCall's own salary, he has tes
tified, Issthus returned to the benefit
of his feUbw-polIcyholders.
Mr. McCurdVs like most men, how
ever, and seems not to have liked It

was, for his own son, whose function
it was as general manager and mem
ber of the finance committee of Mu
tual Life, to fix his father's salary

mittee that even he did not know how
much McCurdy senior was getting.
The testimony shows, however, that
the McCurdys. father and son, and R
A. McCurdys son-in-law, I ArThe

to the Mutual Life, something upwards
of J4.000.000 In 20 years.
BUt it is pleasant to Jcarn 'that
through all vicissitudes of this and
c-ther natures Incident to their posi

These comforts. It may be observed,
are sought industriously by all insur

Richard A. McCurdy, president of

Qovernment May Frustrate
His Plan to Hold Seat

Supreme Court May Hear Argument

Weeks Later May
Cut Term Short.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Oct. 14. Senator Mitchell's at
tempt to retain his seat in the Senate to
the end of his present term will prob
ably bo frustrated, for it is understood
that at an early date the Government
will ask the Supreme Court to advance
the case against Mitchell and fix an
early date fqr Its consideration.
Ex-Senator Thurston, Mitchell's at
torney, recently announced that his ell
ent would not ask to have his case ad
vanced to an early trial, but would be
content to have It taken up in the reg
ular order. Should this be done, the case
couM not be argued until the next term
of court, one year hence, and that delay
would probaWy permit Mitchell to re
tain his seat to within a short time of
the expiration of his term on March 4,
President Wants It Finished.
It is believed, however, that President
Roosevelt Is anxious that this case shall
be disposed of; It is known that Secre
tary Hitchcock favors early action, and
for that matter the entire' Admlnistra
tlon hopes that there will be no unnec
essary delay In securing a final ruling- In
this case by the highest court In the
land. In all probability, the Govern
meat through the Solicitor-General,
will soon ask the Supreme Court to ad
vance this case and set a time for Its
hearing. Several Government cases
have already been advanced, but none
are as Important as the case against
Mitchell. This Is considered sufficient
ground fof the. supposition that the
Mitchell cas will be set for early ar
gumenr, possibly before the Christmas
In the event that the Supreme Court
shall affirm the finding of the lower
court and approve the conviction of
Mitchell, the sentence Imposed by Judge
Haven will be enforced and the
minute the penally is actually Imposed.
Mitchell by the terms of the law under
which he was convicted, will lose-hls
seat In the Senate and be forever barred
from again holding public office. If, on
the other hand, the Supreme Court
should order a retrial, it would probably
occasion sufficient delay to permit
Mitchell" to serve out the remaining
year and a half of bis, present term.
3 lay Be Decided In Few Weeks.
Senator Burton, of Kansas, upon ap
pealing to the Supreme Court, asked for
Its advancement and was given, an early
Hearing. Mitchell follows an unusual
course In maneuvering for delay, but It
Is entirely within the province of the
Government to ask for advancement of
this case, as it does in dozens of cases
each year, the Supreme Court deciding
whether or not the advancement is jus
tlfled. Judging by past rulings on aim'
liar cases, and considering the import
ancc of the case, there Is every reason
to believe an -early day will be set for
the hearing, and the decision is" likely
to follow within a few weeks after ar
gument is concluded.

man, shot and almost Instantly killed
"Bob" Arnold, a prospector, formerly of
Madisonville, Ky., but recently of Salt
Lake and Denver. The trouble arose over
a trifling remark made by Jodoln hist
night at which Arnold took offense. The
latter drew a gun and struck Jodoln a
severe blow on the head, making an ugly
cut. Today as Jodoln was leaving a
saloon Arnold began shooting. Jodoln
turned, drew a revolver and took delib
erate aim. His pistol missed fire four
times, but the fifth attempt was success
ful, and Arnold fell shot through the ab
domen. He died 30 minutes later. This Is
the first homicide in Bullfrog. The kill

nocence of Ira Wade, County Clerk of
Lincoln County. It took only a brief dis
cussion before the verdict -rrrra reached In

12 men of the guilt of Jones and Potter
that it was hardly necessary- to take a,

nine' for acquittal and three for convic
tion, and on the third ballot the entire

For two days past Judge Hunt has
held night sessions in order to bring;
the case to the jury. Yesterday morn
ing before the arguments were begun.
C. P. Bishop, who had been chosen fore
man announced to the court that It was
the desire of the Jury that they listen to
the arguments and be allowed until
Monday before they began their delib
erations. Ho explained that this re
quest was made because a number of
the jurors were Indisposed and ha
feared that if they were forced to a
long session In the close jury-room,
that' the jurors that were indisposed
might become seriously 111. This was
acceptable to the counsel In the case.
Later it was learned that Juror J. C
Marshall had twice been attended by
Dr. George "Wilson and fearign that
serious consequences might follow nls
Indisposition, Judge Hunt, at the cloae
of District Attorney Heney's closing;
argument. Informed the Jury that he
would submit the case to them last
night His Honor excused them for 20
minutes and at the end of that time
they were brought into the courtroom
and the court delivered his Instructions.
Court's Instructions Impartial.
The Instructions were exhaustive, but
uniformly fair and Impartial. Judge Hunt
began reading at 9:30, and It was 10:30
before he concluded. Judge Pipes In
terposed a number of objections, and It
was 11:32 when the Jury filed out of the
courtroom to begin their deliberations.
Before they left. Judge Hunt informed
them that he would remain in his cham
bers until midnight and that if at that
hour they had failed to agree, he would
go home, but that he would be subject
to their call at any time for further in
structions, and that he would. If they
reached a verdict, be In court at S
o'clock this morning. A recess was then
taken, and In 30 minutes after the Jury
bad retired, they reported to Marshal
Reed that a verdict had been reached. -Judge
Hunt was about to leave his
chambers for something to eat, having
worked through the dinner hour over the
instructions. In the meantime word was
sent to the defendants and their attor
neys and as soon as they were In courr
the juty was brought in.
There was a large crowd present to
hear District Attorney Heney's closing ar
gument, but when the jury returned only
a few were present Two women, friends
of the defendants, waited for the verdict
A hush" fell over the courtroom as the 12
men filed Into their seats. Jones, who
seemed to have guessed the conclusions of
the jury, sat with his attorneys, while
Potter, with his chin buried In his collar,
sat with the women. Ira Wade seemed
the most affected of the threes His face
was painfully drawn. He Is a little hard
of hearing, and the strain of the appalling'
moment was plainly visible in the expres
sion on his fee. The verdict against Jones
and Potter was first read by the clerk.
Jones must have felt the Inevitable, for
when Judge Hunt, after opening the en

to the clerk, he leaned towards bis attor-
