of. .local people, anxious to see in what
way Portland would recognise the city's

When the size of the delegation was
realised many were the expressions of
satisfaction and as one 'old-timer ex
pressed it, "Portland Is certainly doing It
self proud "today." .
Early as was the hour the grounds Were
well tilled before the Fort landers arrived
and their accession to the crowd has
made the attendance for the day exceed
even that of yesterday, which was the
greatest ever seen at the fair since its in

of commendation for the exhibits. The
