ple will pass the turnstiles at the fair
grounds and into Athletic park after 11
o'clock tomorrow and until midnight
Ten ticket sellers and as many guard
ing the various gates to both places will
be on detail and as the general admis
sion is only 25 cents It is figured that
everybody will get their money's worth.
Of course the side attractions on the
temporary mldwav and dancing will cost
extra but as one member of the commit
tee nut it veaterdav. "You can dance
your head off for an additional quarter."
'7 List of Speakers.
Perhaps most Important of the events
at the fair grounds in the afternoon will
be- the addresses which will be delivered
by foreign and local leaders of reputa
tion. Foremost of them all of course,
from a labor standpoint will be Clarence
ri. Darrow, who lately defended William
sir. uarrow wrote tne aenerai com
mittee several days ago that unless 1
pressing business detained him he would ;
.surely be on hand to deliver the prln- 1
cipai aaaress ox tne aay. xie wrote
from Chicago explaining that he was
shortly to leave for Boise, Idaho, and
that he would be In Portland not later
than this evening unless detained on
creasing matters. In that event he ,
promised to notify the local committee 1
has been received from Mr. Darrow
since he accepted tha invitation it is ;
expected that he will be on hand as he
Mayor. Lane will make a few remarks
and welcome those in attendance. Other
speakers of the afternoon will be At
torney W. R. McGarry, Seneca Fouts, W.
H. Fitzgerald and Dr. J. Whit comb
Sandwiched In between the speech
making will be vocal and instrumental
selections by Miss W. L. Harwas and
W. H. Drew. The former will sing and
the latter will play on the violin. Prior
to the general exercises which will be
gin promptly at 1 p. m., Tomllnson's
band will render a short concert pro
gram. The speechmaklng and concert fea
tures will be held in the Oriental build
ing, and seats have been arranged to ac
commodate 6,000 people. The seats in
question are those which were stored
after the fair closed and are owned by
a circuB that exhibited on the grounds
at that time.
After the exercises are over the
building will be quickly cleared and the
balance of the afternoon and evening
will be given over in tne Oriental build
ing to dancing. L Tomllnson's orchestra
andWuand will discourse dance music
for the occasion.
It Is figured out by thosethavliig the
affair in hand that between r 25,000 and
(8,000 will be taken in at the gate and
from the various concessions.' The total
amount may even run far In excess of
that sum. But whatever it is the lead
ers hope that It will, be large enough so
that there will be a surplus next
?ear with which to give a demonstra
lon absolutely free. Whatever the aur-
?lus is after paying the various attrac
lons engaged will ko into a general
fund controlled by both branches of the
unions and placed aside for holding next
Would Untertala Boyally.
'It is our desire," said Grand Mar
shal Reed, "to give the laboring people
an absolutely free show next year, if
we cannot do that we hope to do so in
years to come. We have done our best
to make the affair successful this year,
and I think we will get the crowds. 1
feel that we deserve them and every
body has treated us royally. Of course
our attractions will cost us a good deal,
but notwithstanding' all that 1 think we
will make some money on the affair."
In the afternoon one of the principal
features will be the athletic events.
There will be two games of baseball.
One will be between teams representing
branches of tne organisations and the
other will be between the Trunks and
Brewers of the Trl-City league. Both
exhibitions will be on the diamond of
the baseball park adjoining the fair
grounds which has been rented for the
day. An entrance has been cut through
to ttie ralr grounds from the park, and 1
the price of general admission to the
grounds includes a seat for each ball;
One of the features of the afternoon I
will be a balloon ascension, and it has '
been arranged to drop a live turkey
from quite a height. However, the'
Oregon Humane society will have of-1
fleers on hand, and that feature of the 1
exhibition may be abandoned. I
It has been suggested to the commit-!
tee in charge of sports that instead of 1
taking up a live turkey a card giving i
the nndor of it a turkey might answer
the purpose just as well. The latter
could be dropped from the balloon Just
as well as a live bird.
Bay Bird WUI Boar.
"That bird will sail the air as
Sure as fate. Humane society or no
society." said a member of the commit
tee. "We know Just where we stand
and we are not going to bo stopped. The
law Is on our side. They can't hang
us and the worst they can do is to ar
The balloon ascension is scheduled to
take place at 4 o'clock in 'the afternoon.
One of the night features of most im
portance will be the sending off of fire
works from a wire 60 feet above ground
In the hands of a slack walker of repu
tation. Another feature will be a "slide
for life through fire."
Every musical organization in lot
city available has been engaged and
the committee was obliged to press into
service outside bands and musicians for
The committee Is very thankful to
Mayor Lane for permission to bill the
town In an adequate' manner to attract
attention to the events of the day and
everything taken Into consideration
there does not seem to be the slightest
thing at this writing to mar the day's
festivities and even ths weatherman
agrees to furnish ' a good brand of
"Bad, grod or Indifferent weather
conditions cut no Ice with our day of
entertainment." said Mr. Reed. We are
all ready for ths big celebration and
tne s coming off just as advertised.
Special arrangements have been made
to have a number of handsome floats
in the big parade. Some of ths ve
hicles will require as many as 12 horses
to propel them. One of the handsomest
in line will bs that of the -Teamsters'
union. Ctgarmakers will bs rather dig
nified and plan to rids In automobiles.
Bartenders have decided to rids in tal
lyhoa and carriages have been engaged
for garment workers. Perhaps ons 6f
the best turnouts win be ths plaster
ers who will march- dressed .uniformly
in white duck suits,.
