calculations, floor apace within the
Lewis and Clark exhibit palaces will not
only be at a premium before the close
of tha Louisiana Purchase exposition,
but It will necessitate the erection of a
new palace to be known aa the palace of

Exposition Accommodation Bu
reau Authorized by Manage
ment to Provide Room.
Corporation le the Only Body
that Haa Official Endorse
ment of the Fair.
The exposition accommodation bureau
haa filed artlclea of Incorporation and
haa established general offices at 2,20
Ooodnough building, Fifth and Yamhill
streets, with Jamea Steel, president
John C. McLennan, vice-president, and
Eugene D. White, aecretary and -general
Tha purpose of the corporation la to
obtain control of a large number of
rooma situated convenient to street car
lines, to rent to visitors to the Lewis
and Clark fair at reasonable rates. The
corporation haa the exclusive endorse
ment of the Lewis and Clark Centennial
Exposition corporation In fact haa en
tered into ,a contract with the fair dl
rectors to provide visitors during fair
tlma with good room accommodations at
reasonable prices.
The organisation of thia oompany
aolvea the problem of tha proper ac
commodatlon of the guests of Portland's
great fair.
The advantage owners and occupants
of dwelling and lodging-houses will de
riva from arranging with the exposition
accommodation bureau to rent their
rooms for them during tha 1306 fair
will be, that as fast aa rooma may be
come vacant new tenants .will be sup
Visitors to the fair will either make
their arrangements for rooma In ad
vance of their coming or will be met
on their arrival by representatives of
the bureau and located In quarters suited
to their needs and requirements. Many
eastern parties are already arranging
with tha bureau for accommodations In
Only Official Body.
The city will be districted and repre
sentatives put in tha field at onoe. Only
people of sober. Industrious hablta will
be employed, whose competency and re
liability are unqueationed and properly
vouched for.
In order to forestall any misappre
hension by the public aa to who are
authorised by the exposition manage
ment to supply fair visitors with room
accommodations it may be well to state
that the only official endorsement and
authority given by the directorate of
the Lewis and Clark corporation will be
that given to the expoaitlon accommo
dation bureau.
It la generally understood that aome
one or more persona are at present en
gaged in canvassing for rooms and con
tracting to rent them during fair time
in consideration of which 26 cents a
room cash in advance is demanded and
collected. Other partlea are reported to
be soliciting and obtaining contracts in
the name of Steel & White. No such
authority haa yet been given to anyone.
When It haa been extended, representa
tlvea of the bureau will be provided
with certlflcatea of authority by the
corporation, endorsed by the Lewis and
Clark fair corporation, so that none need
be misled or duped into making a con
tract with Irresponsible partlea.
Central offices of the bureau will be
maintained in tha Goodnough building
at Fifth and Yamhill streets, 'phone
Main (2((, and branchea offices at the
union depot and expoaitlon grounds, with
sub-stations or district offices at vari
ous and convenient points In the city.
Repreaentatlvea In uniform will meet
visitors on incoming trains and boats
and direct them to suitable quarters.
A telephone exchange will be Installed
aa soon as It may become necessary.
In view of the fact that there will
be rooms left and to spare in Portland
after guests have been amply provided
for of the vast numbers of rooms to
be had In all parts of the city during
the fair. It will be well for thoae having
rooma to rent to make their arrange
ments with the bureau at aa early a
date aa possible, for the reaaon that
contracts will be made from now on
with eastern parties for room accommo
dations. The latent application for such comes
from an excursion' party of 160 people
from Illinois. A number of other appli
cations have been received and are be
ing disposed of as rapidly as possible.
Will Prevent Extortion.
The question of how to prevent ex
tortion during the exposition was a per
plexing one to iho fair management until
tha present corporation was proposed.
Visitors coming here unheralded would
not be prepared to find hotel accom
modations clrcumscrlb-d. and, coming
aa strangers would be helpless, com
paratively, and at the mercy of those
who might be disposed to overcharge
them. Tha plan by the bureau provldea
a ready remedy and will most effect
ually circumvent any effort to "bleed"
unauapectlng st rangers.
The new corporation will prove the
medium through which both landlord
and tenant shall receive due conslders
tlon and proper treatment resulting In
pleasant and aatlafactory sojourns In our
city during the fair and encomium of
Portland'a treatment of her guests. A
royal reception, a generous welcome and
kind and hospitable treatment will se
cure for us the plaudits of the multi
tude, which, added to Portland'a exhibit
of forest, field and farm, and the object
leaaon of what Oregon is today and what
she may become, seema to be about all
We expect out of the fair, directly.
Profitable reaulta will naturally and
speedily follow In the wake of the "won
der show" of 1306. It Is to the stranger
within our gut ,s that we should accord
as ro;-al a welcome aa we of the great
weat know so well how to give, and thus
o the seed that will bring thousands
of thrifty people to us from every part
of the east and aouth. The Impressions
received by visitors to our great fair.
if favorable, will do more to advertise
our atate than all the offorta put forth
within the past 20 years combined.
A large part of the people who attend
the fair will lodge In rooma In private
dwellings, and the only way In which
these people may be properly and aatls
factorlly housed during the short periods
allotted to their stay in the city will
be through a central organisation, prop
erly conducted and officially censored
by the Lewis and Clark fair officers,
and this will be the purpose of the
exposition accommodation bureau.
