BY REV. L. MYRON BOOZER.
SEATTLE, Wash., July 13. (Special.)
Christian Endeavor Is at all
times a movement of young people,
for young people and aa such recog
- nlzes that "all work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy." 'After the days of
continuous service and hard apllcatlon
. the programme provided for many
pleasures of recreation for Saturday.
After a morning; of the "best yet"
metlnge, in which the Christian' duty
to tne state, were emphasized and the
great throng; of delegates Joined In
the many excursions to points of In
terest about the bay and city. With
weather so delightful there are few
delegates remaining in the city during
The Oregon delegation Is scattered
abroad. The trustees and speakers ot
the convention, with Vice-President
Fairbanks aa guest of honor, were
entertained on board the steamship
Santa Rosa in an excursion around the
bay. A banquet on board ship fol
lowed and a most happy afternoon
was thus provided. The Vice-President

i REAT cherries you have here,"
said George L. Parker, a rep
resentative bf a large Eastern
leather firm in Connecticut at the
Hotel Oregon today. "And, In fact,
fruit of ail kinds. You people are
mighty lucky In It, too. Now, through
the West, along and In the Rocky
Mountains I mean, the fruit this year Is
ruined. From January to the last of
April the weather was nearly aa warm
by day as It la here right now; then
came the big atorm that spread from
one to three feet of snow all over sev
eral Western state Even the apple
crop was ruineu.

cheap, I don't see why some live fruit
man does not send bis surplus to that
market. There the fruit is of poor
quality and' high at that. There Is a
lot of ready money for Oregon If she
can get her fruit from 600 to 1000 miles
east and aouth soon as possible. Or
it can be canned here, I should think,
and sent there if the fresh cannot be
sent because of the distance. People
there must eat fruit, you know, this
Winter, and as the - local trees and
bushes this year are barren through
several great states, Oregon has now
a rare chance to find a new and great
market for her fruit and berries. Colo
rado, for instance, Is a great fruit state
herself in some things; but the Colo
rado crop this year is a total failure.
"Did you hear anything about the

I heard of It, too. No details especially,
you know, but that It waa a big suc
cess. The miners' troubles killed the
festival In Denver, so In a way the
Portland show has taken its place for
the northern part of the Weet.
"What do they think of the Haywood
trial over the states you have been
"Hard to say, exactly. But the gen
eral Idea .seems to be that Haywood
won't be hung, but that the Jury will;
that la. that Haywood la guilty, but
that the other side can't prove It.

man In the party, and greatly endeared
himself to the Endeavorers.
Oregon Endeavorers gather 3d in
large numbers and were photographed
this morning. No finer-looking group
could be found at the convention.
There has been constant demand for
the Oregon badge and the supply has
been exhausted several days. Much
favorable comment la heard on the de
sign of th badge and It Is conceded
by all to be the neatest state badge
eeen In the convention.
An Interesting visitor and an Honored
on of the Oregon delegation was Mr.
Abraham B. Smith, American Consul at
Oregon Endeavorers are waking up. It
Is the fact that they want the Interna
tional convention In the not distant fu
ture, and have given notice to this effect
to all the world.
The busiest place In the big tent En
deavor Is Oregon headquarters. Happy
groups of Endeavorers from all parts of
the state are to be seen at all times, re
newing old and making new friendships.
Among prominent visitors at the head
quarters was Professor H. L. Bates, of
that he was away around the first turn
on a well-arranged bacchanalian sprint.
After attempting to blot the signature
with the sleeve of his ooat, the new ar
rival, with a leering wink and voice
composed of two-thirds of spirits fer
mentl, one-third of vocalization, together
with a trace of rural hauteur, leaned to
ward Clerk Clark and said:
"Say, kid, I'm pretty strong three ways
from base, and I .want a stall with a
bay-winder, an alarm clock, and brass
railin's around the bunk. It youv'e got
a stray mockln' bird about here that
someone Is tired of you can-' put him In
with me. I'm there when It comes to
enjoytn ornithological warbling. I
won't need no fire tonight, for I sleep
with all my duds on in case the hired
girl upsets a can of coal oil In the
kitchen without first turnin" In ' a fire
alarm. Get a big, husky bellboy to guide
me to the bar." -

resenting the Grand Ronde Valley, la
an important member of the Oregon dele
gation. Much amusement was occasioned
Friday night, when five young ladies of
the Oregon delegation were too late to
get Into the tent. They pleaded In vain
with the big policeman until Mr. Powell,
the transportation manager for Oregon,
arrived on the scene, when they were
assisted up through the seats and were
finally made comfortable.
A most Interesting group dropped Into
headquarters composed of four IMes Perce
Indians, all Endpavorers and fine young
men. Not all good Indians are dead.
The Oregonlans are beginning to think
of home now. and Monday night will see
quite an exodus from Seattle.
The Hotel Lincoln has been the scene
of many pleasant hours for Oregon dele
gates, when they have gathered to meet
the prominent men of the convention.
There will he multitudes of Endeavorers
visiting Portland next week, and the Oregon-delegation
Is boosting Oregon here.

their homes with us.
Cupid Reoognlzea So Limit.
That Deputy County Clerk Mackle rec
ognises no age limit In Issuing marriage
licenses was shown yesterday when he
issued itwo such permits In which the
ages of the applicants represent the two
extremes. in one case the combined
ages of the two principals was 167 years
and In the other only 35. The aged cou
ple are both octogenarlana, being John
P. Wilson, aged 85 yeara, of Sellwood,
and Elizabeth Campbell, aged 83 years,
of this city. This makes the fourth
matrimonial venture of the bride-elect.
In striking contrast with this couple Is
the application of Charles A. Phelps and
Pearl Liles, two young people of this
city, whose request for a license was
only recognised by the written consent
of their parents, which accompanied their
application. Phelps Is 19 years of age
while his bride-to-be Is only 18.
