There is a general belief that the many

neighborhood where the two outlaws re-
" reive sympathy are becoming incredu
lous. At a recent meeting of the Directors
of ihe Midwinter Fair Association at
Portland it was decided to abandon the
attempt to make an exhibit at the fair
in progress in Han Francisco. The rea
son lor this is that sufficient interest has
not been manifested in the matter by
Orgonians generally. Portland has sub
scribed very handsomely with a laud
able desire of assisting the State in
making a creditable display, but the
country towns have subscribed such
smal I amounts that Portland has con
tributed more than 90 per cent of the
sum raised. In view of this state of af
fairs and discouraging reports received
as to the probable success of the fair the
.Directors appointed a committee to wind
up the affairs of the corporation anddis
tiibuto the funds.
The San Francisco Chronicle prints a
long article exposing the methods by
which the Chinese may evade the exclu-
' sion law through a- system of Jalse cer
tificates of registration. It states the
Chinese are systematically stuffing the
registration books opened under the Mc
Creary act. The law provides no pen
alty lor the punishment of those who
' reg'isier twice, and on account of thd
great similarity of Chinese in features
and names many are able by going to
different places A registration to secure
from two to a dozen certificates of regis
tration. . These, it is claimed, will soon
have a maiketable value of from $50 to
$100, and will find a among
the Mongolians smuggled into the coun
try. The Chronicle declares the Chinese
have no trouble at all in securing many
bogus certificates.
. Oregon's mammoth cave will soon be
explored and rendeied accessible to the
public. A company has been incorpor
ated at San Francisco for the purpose of
developing what bids fair to be one of
Ihe greatest natural attractions on the
Pacific Coast. For years rumors have
reached civilization that way back in the
mountains of Josephine county, Or., in
1 the wildest part of the Cascade Range
was a cave in which one might wander
for months without finding an end.
These reports came from hunters and
' trappers, who occasionally visited that
wild region in search of game, and but
little credence was given them. Nothing
of anv certainty was known concerning
the cave until lour years ago, when W.
R. Hearst of the San Francisco Fxam
iner sent a reporter, Charles Michelson.
: and a photographer to explore its
depths. The cave is about seventy-five
miles from Grant's Pass, and in order to
reach it they were compelled to go by
etage ai out fifty, miles and the
lemainderof the distance with a pack
' train. From reports given the public
by the Examiner party the cave is larger
and excels in beauty the great Mam
moth cave of Kentucky. The other day

Responding to' a resolution which

Nearly 200000 people have passed the
turnstiles of the California Midwinter
Exposition during the first two weeks
of its existence. This fact establishes
the sure success of the Exposition from
the standpoint of attendance, and tho
verdict of the thousands who make up
this grand total has been unanim & in
favor of the success of the Exposition
from every point of view.,.
Since the opening day, Jan. 27, no
special effort has been made to draw the
crowds. It has been the aim of "the Ex
position management to let the many
features of the Exposition speak for
themselves, and exclamations of sur
prise and satisfaction have been heard
on every hand. -The exhibits are now'
practically all in position. There are no
holes in the floor, so to speak, and it is
noticeable by those who visited the
great Columbian -Exposition that even
ihe exhibits which were seen there ap
pear to have taken on new form here ia
San Francisco, and the exhibitors havo
undoubtedly profited by the experience
gained on the shore of Lake Michigan.
The largest spaces in the center of the
great floor of the Manufactures and
Liberal Arts building ere occupied by
Franco, Germany, Russia and Italy.
Each of, these countries is represented
by a display of artistic and useful man
ufactures which has never before been
seen outside of the great Columbian Ex
position, and in most instances tho dis
plays brought from there have been
augmented by new supplies brought
across the Atlantic and across tho conti
nent especially for this display. - ?
But in the midst of ail this that is
not new to everybody, there is so much
in the Midwinter Exposition that is uni
versally unique aad novel that there is
nothing, of the "old story" about it.
The American section is particularly
proUfic in novelty, and it occupies tho
largest space assigned to any one coun
try, so that the international character
of the Exposition by no means shuts out
the glorification of home industries in
this beautiful industrial fair.
The Palace of Fine Arts has already
proved to be a revelation. Such a dis
play of pictures has never before been' this part of the world. This de
partment did not depend on Chicago for
its pictures, though it got a great many
of the best that were shown there. On
the walls of this building are hung later
pictures by well-knowii American,
French and German artists, and promi
nent among them are something like a
hundred of the works of the best artists
of the Pucific Coast. Connoisseurs say
that the Midwmtor Art Palace is tw
best arranged picture gallery that the
world has ever seen,, and it certainly i3
well adapted for the purposo to which it
is put. , ''V
In the eyes of Eastorn visitors the cit
rus display naturally attracts the most
attention. It seems to be good for East
ern eyes to encounter a pear as big as a
baby's head and peaches almost as large,
to say nothing of so many oranges in
heaps and piles and buildings that thers
is a great gleam of yellow before them

Northern and the Southern Citrus Fairs,
both of which are held in the Exposi
tion grounds, has teen happily produc
tive of the best displays in this line that
have ever been made, even in Califor
nia. The Northern Citrus Fair awarded
its premiums during the past week.
The Southern Citrus Fair does not open
until Feb. 20. The buildings devoted to
this class of displays are proving quite
as popular as some of the main Exposi
tion buildings,' and California citrus
fruits are getting the best advertise
ment they have ever had.
One feature of the Exposition which
has emphasized itself since the opening
day is the excellence of the electric illu
minations. " The system of arc lighting
is as complete as anyone could wish, and
the incandescent system is well calcu
lated to arouse the enthusiasm of the
most latent soul. In these beautiful'
midwinter evenings, whether the moon
shines or not, the entire Exposition
grounds are 03 light as day. Long lines
of incandescent lights stretch the entire
length of each of the main iui d nji and
outline all their architectural points.
The dome of th3 Administration build
ing is -outlined against the deep
blue sky, the straight lines of the
Mechanio Arts building are . clear
cut ;, against ' the background of
the night, the classio outlines of the
Fine Arts palace enhance the effect that
structure always has, and the peculiarly
effective architecture of the great palace
of Manufacturers and Liberal Arts
seems never to be soen at better advant
age than when its thousands of incan
descent electric lights are lightoi.
The Horticulture and Agriculture
building, however, is the one that seems
to attract most attention in this partic
ular. This is perhaps due to the fact
that its lines contain more curves and
more architectural eccentricities than
any other, but it is undoubtedly due in
a larger degree to the ijreat flood, of licht
whicn pours througa the big glass
dome that surmounts the building. Vis
itors seem at a loss to decide whether
the prettiar picture is presented by day,
when the deep green of California's mid
winter foliage lends its aid, or at night
when artificial light plays so prominent
a part. All are agreed, however, that
the California Midwinter International
Exposition is the prettiest World's Fair
that has ever been held upon God's foot
stool, and the concessionaires, many of
whom have staked their all to cross the
continent and share the success of this
kidusjfiaj venture, ajid who smt b cog-
ceded to be good judges of the promise
of such an exposition, are united in the
opinion that this fair will be an immense
success, and that that success will be
readily recognized without cavil and
without the local jealousies that have
too often surrounded similar enterprises.
