TOLEDO, LINCOLN COUNTY. OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 10, 1914
News of each Community Gathered each
week by Our Rustling Associate Editors
The two days' celebration at
Newport was a success in every
way, financially and otherwise. It
was estimated 7000 people took
part in the festivities. The first
of Friday's excercises were held
on Nye besch, which consisted of i
pony and foot races. Four saddle
ponies were entered. The distance
was 300 yards and the 1st prize was
$10, 2d $5, Buckskin, owned by
Loyal Down, took first prize and
2d prize was won by Mr. Blatner.
A number of foot races were run
by the boys and Kirls, but not
knowing winners I cannot give the
number of prizes. The winning
race, free for all, horses, two en
tries were made, Lady Wahscta
owned by the Depoe brothers of
Siletz and I ady Beatrice owned by
I. J. Pipin of Chitwoud. Lady
Beatrice eesily tock 1st prize, $25,
distance one-forth mile. 'Mr. De
poe said it was his understanding
there were to be three heats, but
the judges decided there were only
one. The exercises on the beach
were very interesting. The parade
on Front street to the Park where
patriotic exercises were held was
fine and impressive. The Newport
Band led the parade to strains of
rrartial music. W. E Gwyno was
chosen president of the day. He
introduced the speaker with some
very appropriate remarks. The
choir, led by Elmer Patrick, song
the "Star Spangled Banner" and
other patriotic songs. Rev. C T
Hurd read the declaration of In
depednce and Rev. J. R. N. Bell
-delivered the oration. This was
one of the best orations this pop
ular platform speaker ever deliver
d on a Fourth of July occasion
The water carnival commenced at
1:30 and was one of the most im
portant features of the celebration
The speed boat race bad three en
tries, Dr. Burgess, A. P. Hughes
nnd John Margson. The Neptune
cwued by Mr. Margson took 1st
prize, $15 and Dr. Burgess, 2d,
$7.50. The fish boats, four entries,
was won by Roval Ftrr, $7.50.
Soeed boat, the Rover, owned by
the Ramsdell brothers, the Transit
owned by Capt. Norton. Francis
Ramsdell won 1st $7.50 and the
Transit 2d, $5. The decorations
and luminations of the boats were
fesautiful. The Newport and the
royal barge. Julia were beautifully
and elaborately decorated with
bunting, flags and Chinese lanterns,
making a most beautiful and bril
liant appearance. The life boat,
Undaunted, was most beautifully
decorated. The Julia and Newport
took 1st prize and the Undaunted
2d. The Indian feather dance in
the evening was of special interest
to the visitors. The Cslithumpisn
parade was unique and kept the
people amused from the start.
Said they never had so much fun
and pleasure at a Fourth of July
celebration. The. Indiana helped
out this matter a good deal. The
order was good and but little dis
turbance. One Indian and two
whitenen were put into tha cala
boose for drunken and disorderly
conduct. The life saving drill was
especially good this year. A canoe
was sent out on tha bay and cap
sized with a man and a person
dressed like a woman and would
have drowned had it not been for
the life crew rushing out in the
life boat and just got there in the
nick of time to save them. The
plateau in front of the Ocean
House was covered with people
looking at the drill. Everyone
seemed to enjoy the celebration
and were lothe to see it stop. The
day was ideal, no wind blowing and
the thermometer was 65 in the
shade, Just pleasant.

held here from the 14th" to 10th of
