When the hour for holding the first matinee arrives, 2:30 o'clock Thursday . after noon, not a detail will be left undone, and those who will pass- through the doors of the Oriental building will And every precaution for their safety and every thought, for their comfort has been taken. . ' To give Portland its Initial horse show and to 'make it the success that it promises to be has been a colossal task.. The Hunt Club is not a wealthy organization, but what its members lack In dollars and cents its officers and members more than make up in enthusiasm and determination, and their love for the hotse. ' When the question of giving the shdw was first discussed among the officers of the club, they did not lose sight of the, fact that if the club, was to give a horse show everyone must work, for there was no money In the treasury to hire it donS. With this vital point I always in view, the initial steps were taken. The slogan was. everybody do the work assigned them and how well this has been executed, the public can be the Judge. The Hunt Club members have not gone into the thing for. the purpose of making money. The expense of .pre paring a show that will be worthy of the dignity of a horse show has been something terrlfld. The show could have been given 'perhaps at a less ex pense had the management been willing to have selected a smaller place and had they been less solicitous of the com fort of the public. Had the management been willing to have had a few horses Instead of a great exhibition, there would have been no need of building a barn to hold 200 horses and those who did come could have been left to find their own accommodations. The men who are be hind the show are not. of this caliber. They are progressive men and of a pro gressive city, and they are to give a horse show that wlif be in keeping with the placeund times. The Hunt Club, since its organization In 1899, has done as much end perhaps more to keep alive interest In good horses, as any other organization. From a hand full of men and women who met and took rides over the hills surrounding Portland years ago, it has grown into an institu tion that is a part of the fity. Quietly and without much show the club has held its cross-country runs, Its paper chasm. Then came the annual Thanksgiving day cup race, an open paper chase that calls for splendid horsemanship and a steady nerve. The annual Spring meet, always held at the old Irvlngton track, began to attract public attention. It was not un til the club gave its 6piendid exhibition at fhe Society Circus that Portland actually woke up to what he club really was. In addition to the showing and Judging of the various classes, the - management has arranged for splendid music. Signor A. De Caprio's band will furnish the mu sic and he has arranged a delightful pro gramme for each afternoon and evening. -- The horse ehow will be launched by a' competition drill between two mounted battery teams from Vancouver Barracks. The teams will be made up of 16 mules, two guns and 31 men, one team will be commanded by Captain Cleveland Lansing and the other by Captain L. S. Lyons. The battery commanded by Captain Lansing holds the world's -record for speed In action, and as the club is to give a cup to the winners in the contest between the two batteries, this will be a feature worth seeing. The men and their equipment will be stationed near the grounds and will take part both after noon and evening. HORSES COME FROM SEATTLE Entries of; Treat, .- Considlne and Dobson Arrive From Xorth. The horses of 'H. W. Treat and John W. Considlne, and five "head belonging to W. A.. Dobson, arrived yesterday after noon at . 5 o'clock from Seattle. They were met at the train by members of the Portland Hunt Club and were taken at once to the new stables at the Exposition grounds. Messrs. Considlne, Treat- and Farrell will show 14 head of fancy sad dlers and harness horses, all of which were blue ribbon .winners at the Seattle "horse show. A special car, carrying the carriages and other equipment, will ar rive sometime today. The carload of horses from Tacoma will arrive late this afternoon. Yesterday was a busy one at the Ori ental building. Charles Bowman spent the entire day at the 'Stables allotting stalls. Every one of the 200 stalls origi nally constructed have been taken and carpenters began- work yesterday morn ing adding 20 more to the list. In order to accommodate all the horses. F. O. Downing- has found it necessary to put up. another tent, which will shelter the mules used In the ifountain Battery. He has also found it necessary to make use of the fire engines-house. Owing to the large number of horses entered in classes 126 and 127, it has been necessary to Judge the classes in two di visions. T. S. McGrath, president of the club, announced yesterday that class 126 ""WWPWWM"1 "' 1 X ' BW i imiiMl -HailHWH IIHUMJWMIIM'lllllir'- " - -'---JW 'H W.WWWW".1W WWWWWMrW",1- j JVS&S JTIZ ANCLE'S ZEPVTS, OV CSE OJV rp m l" Tl . . . ; h . -.
