The Lewis and Clark Fair Con
tinued "Portland the Rose
City." Picturesque and His
toric Places Near Portland.
The Lewi utid Clark Ucutenuiul
Extiosition is the first international
exposition under the pationageof the
United state Uovernment ever held
west of the Rocky Mountains; it de
monstrates the marvelous pi ogress
of the 1'acilio Uoast section.
This Fair is different from other
Fairs in many ways, and especially
in compactness one is able to see
the Fair without being tired to
death, as they are at most Fairs,
and this is one great inducement the
officials are offering. The buildings
are arranged near together so that
one can visit several of tne main
buildings without doing much walk
THE AGRICULTURAL EXHIBIT,
Across the Columbia court from
the Foreign exhibit palace which
was spoken of in last week's paper
is the Agricultural palace, the
largest building at the Fair. It is
460x210 feet in dimensions and cost
$74,059. The dome is a particular
feature of the building it rises from
the center and is of such large pro
portions that it can be seen not only
from all parts of the grounds but
for miles down the Willamette
The exhibits in this building arc
divided into dxeient gronps all
kinds of agricultural products, and
a great many of the Slates that
haven't buildings of their own have
display here; for instance,the North
Dakota exhibit has the Itoo$erclt
cabin,which was on exhibition at the
Su Louis fair. Ihc cabin was
moved from 8 miles south of Medo-
ra, South Dakota, and re-built ex
actly as it stood on the banks of the
J.i t lie Missouri river. It i loxda
feet and has two rooms, frejidint
Rooscvtlt lived in this log house
three years, leading a cow-boy's life.
The Nebraska exhi'iit also is espe
cially good, hnving us it docs an
auditorium made of grains, in which
moving piol ures may be seen every
hour in the day. 1 he pictures de
monstrate life in Nebraska and are
a credit to the State, as well as a
great advertisement for it. On the
the outside of the exhibit is the
prize-winner steer, "Champion,"
which has been mounted.
The Washington, Oregon and
California giaiu and fruit exhibits
in this buildiug were fine. In the
Oregon horticultural exhibit were
some specimens from a cherry tree
35 years old. The gentlemuu in
charge said that 4000 pounds of
cherries were pickad from this tree
this year, i bis would be w busneis.
He also told us that cherries were
selling at from 3) to 4 cents per

cellars. All kinds of exhibits rela

culture were shown in this interest
TKAN8POHTAT10N, ELECTRICITY AND
Here visitors see almost every
thing on wheels. A new giant loco
motive, with four ponderous drivers
on either side, measuring a little
more than 70 feet from the rear of
it tender to the front of its pilot,
and weighing 160 tons, is beside the
first engine ever used in Oregon,
called the "Oregon Pony." The four
wheels of the locomotive are only a
little larger than barrel hoops; the
boiler is about the size of a potato
barrel, and the whole engine is only
about 13 feet long. The contrast
between the two is very vivid. A
gigantic walking crane carries visi
tor, noni one part or. me Duuuing

are blooming in almost every yard,
around the humblest homes, as well

make their city more attractive for
this season, gave away 25,000 ro-?e

most beautiful effects obtained- in

on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
of Fair week this year the lurge
attendance will break all records.
President Roosevelt, it should be
in mind, will attend on Thursday
and will deliver a brief address from
a stand to be erected within the
race-track circle, where 25,00 peo'

A the President is a fine horse
man and fend of the saddle, it has
been suggested that a tine charger
(which has already been picked out
by a horsemau here) be placed at his
disposal while here and that the trip
from the city to the fair-groands be
made in the saddle, accompanied by
hundred or more mounted escort.
This would probably not lie quite
as "dignified" as some might desire
aad would be quite a departure from
the old-time 4-horse open carriage
and silk tiles. But the President
is not very strong on the "dignity"
feature and he is mere apt than not
to prefer the chargei to the carriage.

A movement has been inaugurated
by the North Carolina Historical
and Literary Association, which has
its headquarters in Italeigb, and
which will hold its next annual
meeting during State Fair week here,
in October, to raise funds for secur
ing and placing in 8tatuary Hall at
Washington a suitable statue of
Zebulon B Vance. Active steps will
be taken at the annual meeting to
accomplish the desired object. Each
orate is eutiueu w two stamen iu
Statuary Hall, but as yet the
'niches set apart for North Caro
lina are vacant.
It is suggested by soma that the
Association should make an effort to
fill both "niche" at the same time,
while other take issue on that prop
osition. Ode reason of the opposition
is because the people of the State
are not fully agreed npon who should
be tuns honored, along with auce.
By the way: By what modus oner
an'di is this decision to 'm arived at,
and will it not require action on the
part of the legislature to authorize
the placing of these statues?
It is learned that Mr Howard A
