ONLY those Tfrho have been hard at
work for the past two months real
ize what a big task it is to get
things In shape for a horse show. The
officials of the Hunt Club have practi
cally dropped their personal affairs and
are bending all of their energy toward
getting things in readiness for the
afternoon of November 7. the date
on which the show will first open
Its doors. "Avoidance of mistakes made
la the management of other horse shows
has been the watch word of the local
management, and unless some unforseen
accident should take place, the arrange
ments for having each class ready for
the eyes of the Judges will be ready and
waiting at the opening hour of the show.
The Hunt Club has been fortunate In
being able to obtain a Dullding so well
adapted for holding a horse show as the
Oriental building, and those who go to
the show have a pleasant surprise raU
Ing them. The expense of constructing
the show ring, the boxes, reserved seits
and the stables has amounted to over
H0,000p) but the club officials, since the
club was first Btarted, have never done
anything by halves.
wnat is also going to assure the suc
cess of the horse show la the hearty co
operation of the prominent business men
of the city. Just at present the horse
how is the sole topic of conversation,
not only among the club members, but
those Interested In making any local un
dertaking a success. The members, of the
Riverside Drinvlr.g Club at its regular
meeting held Friday night, donated a (30
cup. The club as a whole will have a
box at the show and a special committee
was appointed to decorate the box. The
came will he done by the members of the
Multnomah Club. Several other box
holders have signified their intention of
decorating their boxes. These decora-

which the Baroness Elizabeth has been

well-meaning mothers, who sought to In

STRAUSS' GREATEST OPERA
Composer Says "Electra" Will Be
Even Greater Than "Salome."
BERLIN, Oct. 19. "Greater than "Sa
lome, In a musical sense," one hears of
Richard Strauss' new opera, "Electra."
It will have Its first appearance soon
after Christmas. .
The story of the opera follows that
elaboration of the myth seen In Hoff
manstahl'a drama. The composer keeps
as strictly to this author's terrible text as
he d4d to Oscar Wilde's in the case of
Classical scholars ..will recall that the
story of Electra, daughter of Agamem
non and Clytemnestra, was a favorite
theme of the early Greek tragedians.
Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides. After
her father had been murdered by her
mother, Electra saved the life of her
young brother, Orestes, and afterward
helped him avenge their father by slay
ing their mother.
It is still uncertain whether the first
hearing of the Strauss opera will he In
Berlin oi in Dresden. The probability H
that Strauss will prefer Dresden, where
"Salome" was produced, for he has said
many times that he is averse to having a
premiere In this capital.
With Vegard to the new opera, Strauss
said for print:
"People wondered at 'Salome' i they
made fun of it, scorned it, then they ac
cepted It. They will wonder still more at
my 'Electra.' They will scoff still more,
but they will end by accepting It."
The orchestration presents the same dif
ficulties that were seen in "Salome." The
composer has endeavored to get even
more marvelous effects of color Into his
music. It Is said that in one scene the
music is actually bewildering in its pow?r
and intensity. This is the episode where
Electra rescues her brother. Orestes,
from the murders of her father.
