0-r-e-g-o-n. A long, splendidly equipped
and elegantly appointed train that pulled
out of the Union Depot last night bore
, this word on an immense sign on cither
side of the baggage-car. That was suffi
cient. As this magnificent train winds up
and over the Siskiyou Range Into Cali

In the very heart of the Golden State, the
thousands of persons who see the word
"Oregon" displayed in Immense red letters
on a white background will know its
meaning. "What other could It be but the
excursion of the Oregon business men to
return the visit of the Californians who
so gloriously supported the Lewis and
Clark Exposition last Summer?
Is. an Oregon Excursion.
It was essentially an Oregon excursion
that left last night. Jt is true Portland
was well represented, in fact, splendidly
represented; tout the other flourishing
cities which go to make up this great
commonwealth were there in full force
with their prominent business men and
citizens. Those who have the success of
the excursion at heart took especial pains
to interest other sections of the state be
sides Portland, and to see that this city
did not predominate. And they succeeded
far beyond their expectations, as every
city and town of importance had a most
The 'farewell scenes that always go
hand-In-hand with the departure of a
huge liner on a long ocean voyage were
repeated at the Union Depot last night,
only jn place of a huge steamer there was
the long, beautiful and brilliantly lighted
train. There were about ISO persons in
the party, and all of them attracted
friends, who saw them off. long before
the departure of the excursion, which was
scheduled at 7 o'clock, the depot was
massed with expectant travelers and
those who had come to bid them a hearty
farewell. Some even made trips from
nearby towns to sec their friends off.
Could Have Doubled Number.
All of the excursionists were glad they
were to make the trip, and there were
many in the assemblage who were sadly
disappointed because they had not made
application for a reservation soon enough.
If the railroad company had seen fit It
would have been an easy matter to have
filled another train, as there was a long
waiting list when the personnel of the
party was finally made up.
Just ibefore the time set for the depar
ture the excursionists lined up on the
platform and had their pictures taken.
Then the brakeman yelled. "AH-a -board!"
and the merry crowd choked the en
trances to the cars. Within a few min
utes all were snugly Mowed away in their
respective sections and the train pulled
out. amid cheering and the waving of
handkerchiefs. The crowd looked after
the train until it had disappeared from
view, and then began to break up. Just
before the string of coaches pulled away
from the depot the train- resembled an
island In a veritable sea of humanity, so
dense was the crowd.
. Sncranicnto First Stop.
No stops of more duration that a few
minute's' will "be made until the train
readies Sacramento. There will begin
the series of receptions that will be given
by the different commercial organizations
of California to their Oregon guests.
Persons will be picked up by the train
at all different towns along the route In
Oregon, and the party will not be com
plete until Ashland is reached. Then the
last of the excursionists will clamber
The train from the "City of Roses" will
reach the "City of Angels" next'Saturday
morning. The diner will remain with the
train until after breakfast Is served at
Sacramento. From there on the members
of the party will get their meals at the
different towns at which strops are made.

Refused to Drink Toast to the President
Miss Helen Watkins, of San Francisco, Creates Sensation at Dinner Party-
AX FRAXCISCO, Cal., Jan. 11. 9pe-
clal Correspondence.) A fair daugh
ter of California has come into prom
inence through her refusal to drink to a
toast to the President of the United
States. The Incident has caused no end
of comment. It is said to be dislike for
Miss Alice rather than any feeling against
her distinguished father that prompted
Miss Helen Watkins. the daughter of
President Watkins, of the San Francisco
Board of Trade, to remain seated while
the,pthcr guests at a large dinner party
rose to drink the health of the Chief
Executive, and followed It with cheers
for the head of the Nation.
The affair took place at Sausalito. a
pretty little suburb across the bay, at a
dinner party at which were present a
number of society people of San Fran
cisco and several officers of the revenue
service. Near the conclusion of the din
ner. Captain J. C. Cuntwell." of the reve-
I nue service, called for n toast to Presi
dent Roosevelt. The guests arose with
enthusiasm and drank to the Chief Mag
istrate. Cheers followed, and then it was
observed that Miss Helen Watkins had
remained seated during the toast. All
eyes were turned toward her. The situa
tion was most embarrassing. The young
lady vouchsafed no explanation.
It Is asserted by friends of Miss Wat
kins that she and Miss Roosevelt had
something of a falling out in the Philip
pines. Miss Watkins was visiting In the
Islands when the Taft party, of which
Miss Roosevelt was a member, made Its
well-remembered trip to the Orient. Miss
Watkins had met Miss Roosevelt in the
East, and they were very good friends.
However. Miss Watkins. not being a mem
ber of the official party In the Philippines,
was not included In many of the little
affairs to which she believed her friend
ship with Miss Roosevelt would gain her
an invitation. Some little feeling devel
oped, and Miss Watkins' action at the
dinner was said to indicate her resent
ment of her treatment at the hands of
Miss Roosevelt. At least this Is the story
which has ten going the rounds, and in
lieu of a better explanation it has been
Of far more than usual Interest to so
ciety people of the Pacific Coast is the
announcement of the engagement of Miss
Lurline Sprcckcls and Spencer Eddy, the
secretary of the American Legation at
SL Pflipjjburg. Miss Sprcckcls is the
daughter Gus Spreckels. of San Fran
cisco, and the granddaughter of Claus
Spreckels. She is known for her beauty
nt iuc. wpuais oi .buropc. as weu as in
Sun Francisco and New York.
Although her -home Is In this city. Miss
Spreckels has spent half of every year
abroad. She has had many suitors, and
although her engagement to different not
ables has been reported at various times,
hc remained heart whole until she met
Mr. Eddy. It Is understood that the wed
ding will take place In the Spring. Miss
Spreckels Is possessed of a large fortune
and Is endowed with all the charm that
has made the Amcricau girl loved the
world over. It was only a year ago that
Sahtos-Dumont followed the young wom
an and her mother around the world In
an endeavor to turn hor "no" to "yes."
Gossips here are persistent in declaring
that the widow of Charles T. Yerkcf. the
late traction .magnate of Chicago, is to
beco.me the bride of Wilson Mlzner. of
San Francisco, at the expiration of the
year oC mourning. Mr. Mlzner. although
a San Franciscan, spends most of his
time lii Xcw York. It was there he met
Mrs. Yerkes a few years ago, and they
became fast friends. He was always a
guest when Mrs. Yerkes entertained, and
his solicitude for the widow since the
death of her husband has aroused com
ment. Mlzner has been a society leader
hero, for some time. He I? abrother of
Addison Mlzner, and the two liave ai
rways beqn considered among the most
eligible young men of the smart set. '
Charles- F. Lummh?, of Los Angeles, the
well-known writer, gave his friends a
surpriso the other day when he Intro
duced to them a young woman of 20 years
as his daughter. Xo one In California was
aware that Lummls had a daughter of
that age.. The author explained hat she
was his child by his first wife. It was
known that. Lummls liad "been married
twice in California, and this makes a
third marriage. The young lady Is known
as Bertha Page, and has spent most of
her life In the Eastern States, where she
has perfected her musical education.
Lummls' matrimonial affairs resemble
those of Ruskin. It was not long ago
that he told his wife that he had met a
woman whom he loved more than he did
her. His wife told him that if jch were
the case, he should secure a divorce and
marry his new love. There was no bitter
feeling between husband and wife. The
divorce km secured and Mrs. Lummls
made all the arrangements for her .hus
band's marriage to his new friend. She
was present at the wedding and was the
first to congratulate the couple. Then
she became the wife of Dr. Moore, a pro
fessor of philosophy at the University of
California, and as Dorothea Moore has
gained a Xational reputation as an ex
ponent, of sociology. She? was present at
the convention In, Portia ml last year and
bar paper on Jtrrealle crime attracted -widespread
At the km Ue Lwmmis and his wife
continued to hold Mm. Moore, the dis
carded wlfcjn the highest esteem. Their
first child was called Dorothea, after Mrs
Moore. The people of the state had gen
erally considered that Lummls life had
had Us share of romance and they were
astonished when the 20-year-old daugh
ter appeared. The young lady has- been
cordially received by the third Mrs.
The Talbot divorce case, which was
hushed for a while In the expectation
that an amicable settlement might be
reached, has broken forth ngnin. and tho
skeleton of the family, one of the richest
In the state, has been dragged forth for
the people to gaze upon. William H. Tal
bot and his wife have agreed to disagree,
but they find It difficult to adjust the
family exchequer and the court is now.
struggling with this problem. Mrs. Tal
bot has asked for a monthly allowance
of $2539 and her husband has stated that
he Is well able to pay it. but thinks the
amount too large, nevertheless.
In trying to find out just what amount
Is proper for Mrs. Talbot, the court has
gone into the Inner life of a woman of
fashion, much to the delight of the fe
male readers of the newspapers. The
chief attraction of the case seems to be
the gowns worn during the session of the
court by Mrs. Talbot. She has worn
different dress every day. sometimes two,
changing during the noon interim.

Forest Service to take up the question of
increasing the use of dead and down Um
ber on the forest reserves In a thoroughl
practical manner, not only by extending
the present uses, but also by Increasing
new uses wherever possible.
Such is the policy expressed In a rev-en:
order issued by the Forester to officer
in charge of the reserves. The order con
tinues: "This work Is to be undertaken b i
branch of the service especially capable o"
handling It; and In order that this office
may be Informed as to the conditions m
your reserve, please report on the subject
In accordance with the following outline
and discuss any points not covered by th
questions which you consider important:
"Location of tracts and description or
material on each: kinds of timber; how
and when killed: condition of timber; ac
cessibility; present uses, including pur
pose, amount, value and market: possible
It is planned to make a careful study in
the field of this dead and down timber,
and. If necessary, to test specimens of ir
at the laboratories of the servlee. with a
view to establishing Its suitability tor any
commercial use. It is believed that on
of the results secured will be the creation
of markets for such timber where nono
now exist and to Increase, such present
demand as does exist, so that a larger
use may be found for it and a great sav
ing of waste may be achieved.
