BE m GUES
Other Distinguished Men Wil
Also Add Dignity to Com-
ing Rose Carnival. ;
The only big attraction of Its kind
offered among Pacific coast cities this
year is the Rose1 Festival In Portland,
June 8-11, ,For this reason all t ran
continental . lines plan special rates to
Portland during the summer,' and 'the
advertising value of the carnival to the
city will be doubled. - ,
"I have received . from ' passenger
agents- of the big lines assurance that
special advertising will be -given the
Rose Show this year, and special In
ducementa In the way of rates offered,"
said Manager. George Hutchln . of the
Festival this morning.1
' Oaralval Big Attraction,
"The meeting of the passenger agents
Is to be held in Chicago, January it.
MoCormlck of the O. It. & N. Co. told
me that ths Rose Show would be thelrl
big western travel card for the entire
summer's business. This announcement,
coupled with the fact that our plans,
now completed, are for a bigger expo-
si ton than we ever before dreamed was
possible, make It certain that the Rose
Show ftf 1810 will make Portland the
best advertised city of America.
Tea" said President Ralph W. Hoyt,
of the Rose Show association, "that Is
true, every Word of it The magnitude.
of our plans Is surprising even our
selves. The advertising features of this
year's show are to pass anything ever
before heard of. But I want some more
money to carry out our plans. Many
haven't given aS much as they ought
to to make our way easy. The hotels
hsve Ireated us splendidly, but many
real estate and business Interests that
the Fsstlval directly helps have . not
shown by their donations the Interest
they should manifest This Js not criti
cism, but, merely a plain statement of
fact This is not our show; it Is Port
land's greaH exposition, the thing that
characterizes the city."
Portland .has in the rose," said Mr.
Hutchln, picking up the thread of dis
cussion, "an asset which other cities
might try to equal in vain. Ths city
Is famous for many things, but preemi
nently for the rose, which gets its best
opportunity for bloom and beauty here,
because of the Incomparable , climate.
We want the people to help us to make
the ahow beautiful like the rose In
whose honor it Is. given."
, Xany Biatln gals had visitors.
Dr. Drake, president of the Rose soei-
ety, has been Assured that Luther Bur
bank, wisardS of plant life, will come
Portland during the rose planting
season. Paul Ie Longpre, famous paint
er of roses, who was unable to cbme
last year, will be a guest Secretary of
Agriculture James Wilson will be an
other guest. Consuls from other gov
ernments stationed In Portland will take
part The list of distinguished visi
tors is long and Is to be more fully
Unusual decorative features are
plnnned for the Festival. Few features
will be made public One of ths most
attractive will be tall marble vases
along business streets, to be filled with
the best roses the city affords. . Sixth

has no car tracks on It may get the

From John Barrett head of the fed

puouce, . a letter came to , rrcmaeni
Hoyt which was taken as a tribute most
gratifying. The letter read! .
"The Portland Rosa Festival should
have ths hearty support of all persons
Interested In ths good name, the rapid
growth, and the permanent prosperity
of ths city of Portland and the great
