FEATURES ADDED TO
BIG CELILO FETE
Lock Transfer Celebration at
Oregon City to Be Part
TRAIN FARE IS TO BE FREE
Oregon Portage Hallway Offers
Service From The Dalles Cardi
nal Kvont Opening at Big Eddy
' on Afternoon of Slay 5.
"Within the past few days many new
features have been added to the big
celebration of the opening: of the
Celllo Canal, -which will take the form
of a river pageant from Lewiston,
Idaho, to Astoria, punctuated with
special programmes at all of the im
portant cities along the way.
Of especial attraction in the pro
gramme Just issued by the committee
Is the celebration to be held at Ore
gon City, May 6, in connection with
the formal transfer of the Willamette
Locks to the United States Govern
ment. This celebration links up the
entire "Willamette Valley with the
crowd of celebrants that comes from
'.lie cities of the Inland Empire and the
Upper Columbia, and will augment
greatly the fleet that will sail into the
harbor of Portland on the afternoon of
May C. and will proceed down to As
toria on the following day.
A special celebration at Arlington
lias been added to the programme also,
and is set for May 4, between the cele
brations at Umatilla and at Maryhlll,
Paasenser fare to Be Fr.
In the close of the week's programme
will be the Waterways' Convention at
Astoria and the preliminary celebra
tion of the 123d anniversary of the dis
covery of the Columbia River, by Cap
tain Robert Gray, which will be cele
brated formally on May 11.
The cardinal event, however, which
is. to be celebrated and around which
centers the interest of all of this erreat
voyugo from Lewiston to Astoria, Is
the opening of the Dalles-Celilo Canal
at Big Eddy, at 2 P. M.. May 6. Trains
of the Oregon Portage Railway will
carry passengers free all day between
The Dalles and Cclilo, and the river
craft that have come down from Lew
iston and other Upper River cities, will
assemble for the ceremony In the canal
The hlBtory of the events that led
tip to the beginning of the engineer
ing project, whose culmination In the
opening of this canal Klves an open
river gateway of transportation from
the whole Inland Empire to the Hea, is
a story of the untiring efforts of public-spirited
representatives of the
State of Oregon in Congress and in the
M. A. Moody Originator of Plan.
About 13 years ago the party In
power chose M. A. Moody to repre
sent It In the National Assembly, suc
ceeding himself. One ot the chief
reasons was that Mr. Moody had an
idea la his mind that he wlBhed to
follow up during another term to a
successful termination. That was the
removal of the obstructions In the
Columbia River at The Dalles and
Tumwater Falls by a system of locks,
thereby opening a great waterway to
It was now up to Mr. Moody to show
Kenator Burton, of Ohio, the chairman,
who was dubious, and the other river
and harbor committeemen, who also
were dubious, that Ms Oregon con
stituency were people of their word
and also knew what the country need
ed. Therefore, during the Hummer of
1902, this distinguished committee,
under Mr Moody's leadership, came to
Ureson and visited the Grand Dalles
of the Columbia and by steamboat
made a special trip to the head of
Our needs were up to the committee
so strongly that at the next session
the river and harbor committee re
ported favorably on the proposed
plan, provided, however, if the United
States Board of Kngrineers should say
that this amount would cover the cost.
At this time Oregon's Legislature
was divided somewhat In this manner
in its representation, the Willamette
section having 70 votes, while Eaatern
OreKon had only 20. This was the
session when N. Whealdon represented
Wasco County in the council of state
and, it is said, who worked day and
night to persuade some of the 70 to
help the Kastern Oregon vote.
BATTERY A TO HAVE TRIP
Militia to Participate in Artillery
Maneuvers at Monterey.
Official announcement was made by
Adjutant-General White yesterday that
Battery A. Field Artillery, of the Ore
gon National Guard, stationed at Port
land, would be sent to Monterey, Cal.,
lor joint exercises with the field artil
lery of the regular Army. The battery
will leave here about June 14 and will
remain in camp In California until
The United States Government will
place field guns and equipment at
Monterey at the disposal of the Oregon
troops so that it will not be necessary
for them to take their own equipment.
The men will be trained in the use
of the guns under regular Army offi
cers and will be put through various
maneuvers and brought in contact with
conditions similar to those which would
prevail in actual warfare.
The War Department has set aside
$5000 to defray the expenses of the
battery. General White said that the
battery would go to California about
100 strong. First Liautenant George
B. Otterstodt is in command of Battery
A. Jt is believed, however, that a bat-
tery commander will be appointed to
take the place of Captain H. U. Welch,
who resigned some time ago, before the
; battery leaves for the south.
SCHOOL MEEDS DISCUSSED
Exceptional Children Study Society
Hears Ijiidd Teacher.
"Investigation and Recognition of
Talent" was discussed by Miss Anna E.
Rogers, teacher at the I.add School, is
her address at the meeting of the or
ganization for the study of exceptional
children held at the Courthouse Fri
day. Miss Rogers has studied in Europe
and while there she devoted a great
deat of time to tha educational systems
of Germany, France and Switzerland.
Miss Rogers said that legislation,
making special provision for the teach
ing ot exceptional children, seemed to
be far distant. The speaker predicted,
however, that a plan ultimately would
be worked out which would be worthy
of a place in the educational system of
