On Lake view terrace, . overlooking

the bronse monument to Bacajawea,- the
heroins of the Lewis 'and Clrk expedi
tion. It was revealed to tha publio for
the first time today amid a demonstra
tion of profound patriotism. The exer
cises accompanying the unveiling were
of a character that made them as nota
ble, perhaps, as any yet held' within the
fair grounds and were applauded by S
mammoth crowd. " -
A platform was erected in front of
the atatue eo that tha brown hand of the
Indian , girl pointed directly at the
speakers who extolled ner. There were
many prominent men and women on the
atand who revered ths memory of the
bird woman aa though she had been a
queen of natlona.

Ths address of the day4 waa delivered
by Busan B. Anthony, who apoks of
Bacajawea as on of the greatest ef
American heroines, second not even to
Molly Pitcher, and she- pitied ths women
who waa unable on thla occasion to

the belief among members of the cabinet
who accompanied ths president on bis

. While no formal announcement is
made, it is stated in circles where Ell
Root is prominent and Intimately known,
that hs is to accept the state portfolio.

He waa 4 member of tha Alaskan bound
