tiome of the members of the delega
tion would be Jut as well satisfied If
the convening of the Legislature would
be postponed until a more auspicious
time. Others are willing to take a
chance on contracting the "flu." One
solution suggested Informally at the
meeting of the Multnomah delegation
at its last meeting was that the Legis
lature meet as per law. January 13,
.proceed to organise and then take a
recess until such time as the disease
has vanished from the capital of the
That this could be done and the ses
sion held strictly In accordance with
the provisions governing the body Is
asserted. The plan Is considered better
than the questionable one of having
the Governor, by proclamation, post
pone the opening of the session. After
the Legislature is organized It can
recess as long as It sees fit. but. of
course, tho members will draw pa? for
only 40 days.
Jn the opinion of Representative
I. C. Lris. the Legislature can meet,
organize and go ahead with business,
defying the "flu" to do its worst. He
aays that one way of protecting the
members would be to exclude from the
Senate chamber and hall of Repre
sentatives everyone who has not im
portant business thre. such as the
members, the staff of employes and. of
course, the press. By excluding the
general public and spectators, provid
ing for plenty of ventilation and taking
similar precautions, Mr. Lewis thinks
that the Legislature could operate
without particular danger.
Conditions tn Salem are such that
the fetate Federation of Labor has de
cided that the wisest policy is not te
hold Its annual conference in that city
during the coming week, but to hold
It in Portland instead. Reports from
Salem are to the effect that the author
ities there arc striving to suppress the
influenza and stamp it out before the
date for opening the Legislature.
Just a week remains before the law
makers leave for Salem. In the next
few days practically all of the mem
bers wlil be drifting into Portland to
see what Is going on and get a line
on prospective bills. Senator Baldwin,
of Klamath. Is already here and Repre
sentative I. G. Martin, of Salem, showed
op yesterday, as did Seymour Jones,
who will be the next Speaker of the
House. Representative P. J. Gallagher,
of Ontario, is expected today. Repre
sentative Joseph O. Richardson, of
Multnomah, has returned from Cali
fornia, where he went to coach himself
along certain lines of legislation which
will be considered during the session.
This la one of the most quiet pre
Legislature periods known In Oregon.
There are. as a usual thing, warm
discussions over some piece of Iegisla
tton in advance of the session, scores
of bills being considered. This time,
however, there Is practically no leg
islation In sight. There is much legis
lation, but to speak by the card, there
are no definite plana. For Instance.
the finances of the state are in a bad
way and something must be done, but
so far no member has come forward
with a programme of finance of a con
structive character.
One reason why there is little ex
citement in legislative circles is be
cause the organization fight is over
Senator W. T. Vinton has more than
enough votes pledged to elect him
President of the Senate and Seymour
Jones has more votes than he needs
to make him Speaker of the House.
The only thing left to do is to fight
lor committee places.

Sentiment favorable to the celebra
tion of the Portland Rose Festival in
1919 as a fitting event for the recon
struction year, seems to be crystalizingr
Value of the event in advertising the
attractions of Oregon to the tourist and
traveller and capitalizing the fact that
the Portland rose is the matchless
blossom in the flower gardens of the
world are being recognized.
Julius L. Meier, of the Meier and
Frank Company, yesterday expressed
the sentiment of business men regard
ing the proposal to revive the festival '
which was allowed to lapse while war
occupied the attentions of citizens.
Festival Always Success.
"The Rose Festival has been a suc
cess from the first," said Mr. Meier. "It
has been distinctive and has afforded
the opportunity for an annual holiday
for thousands of people who were de
lighted with the chance to come to the

'Large cities of the country have
created individual festival events as a
means'of advertising their peculiar at
tractions. New Orleans has the Mardi
Gras, St. Louis her Priests of Pallas.
Seattle the Potkitch. Through the
energy and public-spirited activity of
citizens we established in the Rose
Festival something: that has been won
derfully beneficial in making Portland
known throughout the country for the
charm of the event.
Advertising Far-Reaching.
"From a business point of view I do
not think the merchants gain from it.
But the advertising results for the city
and state as a whole are far-reaching.
The Royal Rosarians have played a
prominent part in previous festivals I
and I am heartily In favor of that or- '
ganizatlon taking the lead in plans
for the event In 1919. Not alone in the I
festivals of the past, but in the splen- '

spirit of this community on various oc

Rosarians have done an important

to help start the fund for the 'Festi

any live business man of our city la
opposition to an event that has so con
spicuously put Portland before the
world, or one who will decline to con
tribute to the fund necessary for the
1919 Festival. The cost is merely nomi
nal and I feel that a majority of mer
chants will be glad to contribute."
