ed a decision upon it..
Mr. Crawford says that the title of

commission to an exhibition of th

the products of the soil, rivers, min.-s.

th Lewis and Clark Centennial jimi
American Pacific Exposition and Ori
ental Fair, a corporation of Portland.
the reference to thes. articles of in

holds, leaves no argument as to f Ui

The act furthermore provides 'that

Portland, and to carry out the proiis-.
Ions of the act. In closing his opinion,
the Attorney General says:
"The iowera conferred upon ! tli
commission bv said sub-division.' and
by all th provisions of the act! n
general In their terms; not once in th
act has the Legislature attempted -to
particularly Utfine the powers an.i
duties of the c-onunission: but In eery.
instance conft-ra a geiierai pow-r to
carry out the purpose for oi. h it
was crviated. The matter of details 'is
left entirely to th? t-oinmfSsii.n; such
an act cannot be technically con
strued, to so construe it would ernbar
ras the commission In proiecuting th-ir
work of promoting th Exposition, and
be detrimental to its success.
- "What steps are necessary to m
courage, secure, and promote a full
and complete exhibition, must b- to a
great extent If not entirely, lrt to the
commission, which is coirmosed of
ffl even men chosen by tht tlovernor t
the state, as . specially fitted to per
form the duty imposed upon them.
' "I am therefore of the opinion lh.it
the act must be liberally construed.
That a reasonable amount of adver
tising is necessary and proper to fur
ther the interests of the exposition
will be readily conceded, and the tnan
ner thereof is to be determined by the
commission. The claim under consid
eration, while it requests an appropri-'
ation from Congresa In aid of the ex
position, also advertises it In places
which are liable to bring valuable re
turns, and. it is In my opinion, an expense-
the -commission has a right to
incur, "and is undoubtedly within the
purview of the act.
"The question as - to whether the
commission can nd a representative
to the National Congress, and th Leg
islatures of the several states to urg-
an appropriation In aid of the fair, in
not involved in tbe consideration W
the claim, and I have other matte
of greater Importance to the state un

oughly, but will do soon If necessary.
