BY ADDISON BENNETT.
SALEM. Or, June 27. (Special.) In
the third day of the first year of the
reign of Queen Anne VI, which was
also and likewise the last day of her
peaceful and prosperous Queening, there
was incubating right by the side of her
throne a revolution fathered, or rather
mothered, by another claimant for the
throne, the illustrious Anne Royal, more
often spoken of as Royal Anne.
Some who have not the fear of God
in their hearts or tha love of fialem in
their souls go so fir as to jay that
Anne Royal and her fellow conspira
tors. Lady Bing, the Duchess of Lam
bert and their Black Republican cohort,
came here from Polk County. They
also go farther, or perhaps further, and
r that if Polk and Yamhill were
wiped off the map there would be no
but what is the use of denying to Salem
the right to hold a cherry fair if she
chooses? I am reminded Dy jac rowo,
who Kits at mv side dictating this let
ter, I am reminded, by a kick on the
shins, that Salem is the only city in
Oregon, except Portland, where the
population ran into five figures at the
last census. And, furthermore, that
when it comes to cherries xne oaiein
cherries are the best on earth.
1000 Founds Consumed.
Then Jack went out and bought an
other drayload and set them out in the
lobby for the use and benefit of bis
guests, who thus far in the engagement
have consumed 1900 pounds of Lamberts
and Royal Annes since Thursday morn
ing. Fearful that I would not believe
more than 600 pounds of the story Jack
called in Mayor Steeve, ex-Mayor Rodg
ers, Bob Hendricks and John Cradle
baugh to vouch for the truthfulness of
the statement. Those four in certain
cases might prove an alibi for Jack,
but as vouchers for his truth and ver-
CButthis has nothing to do with the
arrival of the Rosarians and their
greeting by their fellow white-suited
brethren, the Cherrians. The Cherrlans,
you understand, hail from the Cherry
City, which Is Salem; the Rosarians,
including Dr. Cornelius, who did not
know Salem was a dry town until
well, as I was about to remark, the
Rosarians came up from Portland to
the tune of 100 in their white suits,
and. Suffering Peter, how they set the
hearts of the Salem ladies aquiver!
But I mention no names, some of those
cutting the most ice being respectable
married men when at home. But of
course, the Salem Cherry Carnival
comes to a head only once a year, and
Salem being a dry town, a very dry
town, so derned dry that I don't be
lieve at this minute there are a half
dozen bathtubs full of beer In the
whole, town, in the whole blooming
Great Time Is Bad.
All of which goes to show that the
Rosarians and the Cherrians are hav
ing a barrel of fun, mostly at the ex
pense of the Cherrians. For it is about
as difficult to get a Rosarian to loosen
up as it is for, for remember I am
now speaking of dry towns. It may
be different where there is a wetness
on the surface or where the Sheriff
winks the other eye, or farther away
from Miss Hobbs.
Just across from Jack Crowe's cara
vansary, sometimes called The Marlon,
there is one of the most wonderful dis
plays of cherries ever seen. Never In
any other state was the exhibit even
approached, which is drawing it mild
when we remember that the Oregon
cherry Is the finest on earth. No need
to attempt to prove that statement; it
proves itself. This year the Salemites,
who include the Cherrians, have been
specially fortunate In weather condi
tions to have the cherries just right at
the right time. Last week, even last
Monday, would have been too early;
next week, even next Monday, would
be too late.
All this may lead you to think that
all we are doing is eating cherries,
which I will admit Is our chief amuse
ment but how about the motorcycle
races at the fair grounds, the ball
game, boat races, the dances, the ban
quets and the merrgo-rounds, the
Ferris wheels, the sideshows, inside and
Visitor May Knmber 10,000.
These would not amount to much If
It were not for the great mass of peo
ple in attendance. Every train, every
boat, every well, people have come
any way possible to get here. I will
bet there are 1000 out-of-town autos
here and every one of them brought
about as many people as it could carry.
I saw one seven-passenger car come
down State street with eight adults
and ten kiddies in it, or on It If I was
told that there are right at this min
ute 10,000 guests in the town I would
not dispute it.
But I would dispute loud and long
any statement averring that even one
of these guests had failed In having a
good time or had failed to receive the
best of treatment from the Salemites.
Salem is not, as figures reveal, an awful
large city. It is true It is easily the
second city in Oregon. But there are
no bisger-hearted people on earth than
the Salem people. (Here George Uy
land suggests that I say something
about the lovely Salem ladies and Bill
Hanley chips in and says, "make it
Btrong"). So I will merely suggest that
the Salem ladies are as noted for their
loveliness as the Salem cherries are
for their flavor and size. Which is the
best I can do, George and Bill, until the
returns are all in.
ELECTRIC PAGEANT IMPRESSIVE
Revel In Street Marks End of Capital
SALEM, Or.. June 27. (Special.)
Balem's sixth and greatest Cherry Fair
came to a close tonight. Its climax Was
an impressive electric parade, depicting
the development of, Oregon. Fun was
fast; and furious all day, and there was
not a person among the thousands who
thronged the streets that did not de
clare the festival a glorious success.
Royal Rosarians, of Portland, mem
bers of their families and their friends,
arrived in the city on a special train
at 2 o'clock In the afternoon and joined
in the f unmaking. Much of the credit
for the success of the grand finale is
due to them. They paraded the streets
with the Cherrians, saw the motor
cycle races at the State Fair grounds,
were guests of the Commercial Club at
a buffet luncheon, and in the evening
the uniformed Rosarians. 100 strong.
Including their band of 2 pieces, were
a feature of the electric parade. The
Cherrians were tie quests of the Ko-

sarians during the Rose Festival and
they came home singing the praises of
their hosts. So, too, the Portland men
will return home lauding the Cherrians,
for all said they never had a better
City Shown to Be TSo Laggard.
While it was not to be expected that
there would be as many floats in the
Salem electric parade as there were in
the one during the Rose Festival, there
were sufficient to prove that the cap
ital city is no laggard.
"Solitude of the Forest" was a float
depicting the early days of the state.
An Indian in a forest in moonlight was
the scene. Another, "The Coming of
Jason Lee and His Missionaries," was
an impressive creation. It showed Lee
and his band stepping rrom a canoe to
the shore of the Willamette.
"Winning of the Land" was one of
the prettiest and most ' Impressive
floats. It depicted the clearing of land,
the plowing and the harvesting.
The greatest crowd of the carnival
was on the streets as Queen Ann VX in
her royal conveyance illumined with
myriad lights, came riding by. Her
reign of three days was at an end. She
had steDDed into her conveyance to go
away. The float was entitled "Going
Away of Cherrydom."
. Spanish War Vetexams Shown.-
A scene showing Spanish-American
war veterans returning from the Phil
ippines was Interesting and appropriate.
for the veterans of that war closed a
three days' reunion In the city tonight
The Knights of Pythias, United Arti
sans and other organizations were rep
resented with brilliantly lighted floats,
and, last but not least, came the car
emblematic of the festival entitled "The
Glory of the Cherry.". It was a cherry
tree bending from the weight ox its
many clusters the apotheosis, of the
Marion County orchard.
Other features of the parade were
men on norseoacit representing
pioneers, a Woodmen of the World
drill team, the Rosarian band, the
Cherrlan band, sons of Spanish-Ameri
can war veterans' drum corps, heralds
and others. -
Revel Ends Festival.
With the disbanding of the parade,
Queen Ann and her suite were escorted
to the dlas at the corner of Fort and
Liberty streets. A grand march was
led by the king and queen, the Ro
sarians and Cherrians falling in be
hind. A two-step, participated in by
the Rosarians and Cherrians, followed,
and then the crowd joined in a revel
which continued until midnight.
The Rosarian special was met at
Chemawa by a committee of Cherrians
consisting of Frank Durbin, T. C. Smith,
Jack Crowe, F. C. Deckebach, George
F. Rodgers and J. R. Linn. Clusters
of cherries, giving them the freedom of
the city, were pinned on the lapels of

SALEM, Or, Jnne 27. (Special.)
Charging the Democratic National Ad
ministration with destroying the mar
kets for the farmers and other pro
ducers, and being responsible for pres
ent unsettled business conditions, and
blaming Democratic state officials for
the Increase In state taxation, the
Marion County Republican Central
Committee, in a platform adopted to
day, started a campaign which it is
believed will result in increased Re
publican majorities in this county.
The platform recommends that state
taxation be limited to 2 mills, and that
the marion County delegation in the
Legislative Assembly pledge Itself to
oppose the creating of new offices and
to lend its aid in having boards and
Dr. James Withycombe, Republican
nominee for Governor, urged united

to cut down the expense of govern

ing of the committee was one of the
most enthusiastic he had ever attend
ed and that it augured for victory in
Market Destruction Denounced.
The platform in part follows:
"We condemn the policies of the
Democratic party, which under the
present Administration, as in every
past period when that party has been
in power, has resulted in destroying
the markets for the farmer and pro
ducer as well as opportunities for em
ployment of labor and benefited other
countries at the expense of the citi
zens of the United States.
"We condemn the Underwood tariff
law as producing neither revenue nor
prosperity, and for having utterly
failed to preserve a just equilibrium
between agriculture, manufacture, for
estry and mining, throwing away the
protective principle and leaving the
disadvantage with our country.
"After 10 years of unbroken pros
perity for the farmer and laborer we
are now under a Democratic Adminis
tration facing an adverse balance of
trade. Under Republican rule we were
selling the world each year about
1500,000,000 more merchandise and
products of the soil than we were
buying from it.
Free Trade Held Destructive.
"The Underwood tariff is turning
the trade of the world against us, free
trade destroying the home market to
benefit foreigners without compen
sating benefits. For the first time in
many years in May 1914 our merchan
dise imports exceeded merchandise ex
ports by $6,230,814. In sharp contrast
with this, in May, 1913, before the
Democratic tariff was enacted, our for
eign trade balance was more than
$60,000,000 in our favor, exports from
our country exceeding Imports $61,
126,621. "Only by the election of a Republi

dent, standing upon well-known, time
tried and fundamental Republican
principles can our commercial suprem
acy be restored, and the fallacy of a
Democratic tariff that affords neither
protection nor funds to run our Gov

the exposition at Ban Diego.
Mr. Meredith said that all space in
the machinery building had been en
