EXPOSITION IN FULL SWING.
Portland, Juiu 6th The most aus
picious ceremonies ever witnessed on
the Pacific coast Accompanied the open-
Ing of the Lewis and Clark Exposition,
June Ist. Nearly 40,000 people were
present. The program was carried
out without interruption from the
parade in the morning to the firing of
the centennial salute and the formal
Opening Of the Exposition. Never in
the history of Portland was so repre
sentative and distinguished a body as
seembled. Vice-President Fairbanks
was present as the personal represent
ative of President Roosevelt, Speaker
Joseph G. Cannon of the House of
Representatives and an important party
of United States senators and members
of the House of Representatives.
The weather was ideal. The skies
were immaculate, the sun shone warm
and the atmosphere was pleasing. The
natural attractiveness of the Exposi
tion site was greatly enchanced. Guild's
Lake, the great natural water basin
of the Centennial, was akin to a huge
mirror and upon its placid surface were
reflected the graceful outlines of the
imposing government buildings on the
peninsula. To afford all an opportun
ity to view the Exposition at its best,
the ceremonial platform was located in
Columbia Court at the top of the grand
As early as eight o'clock people be
gan to enter the grounds and sought
the benches surrounding the rostrum.
At 1:30 Vice President Fairbanks, ac
companied by President Goode of the
Exposition, the congressional party
and a body of representative Portland
business men, and escorted by both
cavalry and infantry of the United
States regular army, entered the
grounds. The soldiers made a most
impressive paegant. Upon their ar
rival the dsitingiushed guests were
driven to the New York building,
where preparations had been made for
their reception. Then they repaired
to the ceremonial platform.
At noon a vice-presidential salute of
nineteen guns was fired, after which
President Goode called the assemblage
to order. The divine invocation was
rendered by Rev. David H. Moore.
The inspiring strains of "Imperial
Oregon," composed by Innes, was then
rendered by Innes' famous band. Pres
ident Goode addressed the huge gather
ing. In rapid succession Rev. George
E. Chamberlain, of Oregon, Hon. Jef
ferson Meyers, chairman of the Ore
gon >>-tate Exposition Commission, May
or Geo. H. Williams, of Portland,
Senator Clai'ence D. Clark, of Wyom
ing, Hon. James A. Tawney, M. C,
of Minnesota, Hon. H. A. Taylor, first
Asst. secretary of the Treasury Depart
ment, Vice President Fairbanks and
Speaker Cannon delivered speeches.
An amusing incident accompanied
the introduction of Speaker Cannon.
He was about to deliver his opening
words when a message was received
from President Roosevelt Btating he
was waiting to press the golden key
which would start the machinery of the
Exposition. "Uncle Joe" made the
following impromptu remarks:
"Mr. President, gentlemen and cit
izens: lam informed that the presi
dent of the United States, 3,000 miles
away, with his riding horses at the
door, has been waiting an hour and a
half to press the button. I wouldn't
mind talking to you an hour and a half
and keeping him waiting that much
longer. But I want to say that lam
not such a fool as I look to be and I
am going to stop right here and now."
Applause and cries of ''go on". "The
time limit" is live minutes at the
best," he responded, "so I'll wait un
til the button i- pressed and then I'll
sing you a song.''
The signal of Preside! i Roosevelt
was received amid much enthus:
After a benediction and the formal dec
laration of the opening of the Centen
nial by President Goode, with cheers
and general merrymaking the people
rushed for the buildings, the Grand Es
plande, the Government buildings, and
last, but not least, the Trail. As a
matter of fact the gaiety boulevard
proved the most popular feature of the
Hut the mosl agreeable surprise for
the visitor did not come until eight
o'clock at night, when the electric
lights burst forth.
CONNECT FARMERS BY TEL
An extensive network of rural
telephone lines in Whitman coun
ty has been consolidated under
one managemeni and the Inland
Cooperative Telephone associa
tion has been organized to man
the business. The associa
tion is incorporated under the
state law and has a capital stock
of $15,000, divided into 3,000
shares of a par value of $5 each.
Much of the capital .stock has
been subscribed by farmers and
merchants of Whitman county.
The officers are U. S. G. Story,
president; George Thatcher, vice
president: 13. A. Swall, secretary;
Monroe Bryant, treasurer. The
directors are J. W. Ilaines, W.
W. Robertson, Richard Booth, D.
C. Fletcher, Charles Moys, U. S.
G." Story and George Thatcher.
All these officers are farmers liv
ing in the neighborhood of Pull
man. The principal place of bus
iness of the company is to be
Pullman, where the company has
opened a telephone exchange,
with day and night operators.
More than 300 telephones have
connection with the Pullman offi
The company has bought sev
eral independent rural lines, in
cluding those of L. L. Wright,
who had quite an extensive sys
tem, with an exchange in Pull
man. Other lines have been con
solidated until the company now
has hundreds of miles of tele
phone lines and hopes to have
1000 telephones before winter.
An exchange at Albion, six miles
west of here has between 80 and
100 telephones in the village and
the surrounding country, and an
effort is now being made to ex
tend the system to Colfax and
open an exchange there. A
switchboard for 200 telephones
has been ordered for Colfax and
will be installed as soon as it ar
rives. Messrs. Story and Booth
were in Colfax the other day and
secured $300 stock subscriptions
by Colfax business men in less
than two hours. Colfax mer
chants seem anxious to have the
system established in Colfax and
have aided the directors in many
"We expect St. John and other
towns to unite with us in form
ing a system which will coverall
of Whitman county and give
eveuy farmer who wishes to con
nect with us direct connection
with every other farmer in Whit
man county, "said George Thatch
er, vice-president of the associa
"The farmer furnishes his own
telephone and pays the associa
tion 50 cents per month for the
switchboard charges. Merchants
are putting the telephones into
their stores and every doctor and
livery stable in Pullman has a
phone on this system. Miss
Elva Bryant is operator here and
she and her assistant keep the
office open until quite late at
night and sleep in an adjoining
room. They have a call bell on
their bed and a farmer wishing
to call a physician can telephone
to Pullman at any hour of the
night and have the doctor on the
road to his farm in a few min
There are now thousands of
miles of telephone lines running
through Whitman county and all
have followed the original barb
wire telephone line built from
Pullman to the home of J. S.
Klemgard six years ago. That
was the first rural telephone line
in this section, but was the har
binger of this great system,
which has done niuch to make
farm life more pleafcant and con

According to the general con-
census of reports, the past week
was the best growing one of the
season. For the most part the
nights, as well as days were warm
and there were frequent copious
rains, which were unusually

uplands, to all grains, grasses
Fall wheat is heading out in
fine condition, but in some lo
calities it is rank in growth,
rendering it very liable to lodge
in heavy rains or winds. Spring
wheat is growing luxuriantly,
well stooled, has a good color and
is now "in the boot." There is
enough mosture now present in
the soil of the eastern counties
to mature an abundant wheat

in the character of the weather
during the blooming and filling
stages. Should there then be

Tho Leading Temperance Taper, Sounds
the Call to a New Crusade in
the Following Article.
« ANOTHER HEAD ON THE HYDRA."
" It is time attention was drawn to a
form of alcoholic traffic that seems to
haw been overlooked by tliou engaged
in the crusade against the rum power.
If, ;is is believed and taught, alcohol is
i dangi ions when it fights in ambush,
if ;t is most to be dreaded when it findl
its first entrance to the system in the
pleasant sauces and dishes of the home,
then the form of alcoholic traffic in ques
tion is doubly dangerous, for it comes in
the guise of medicine and attacks a sys
tem prepared by weakness to easily sur
render to the assault. In many
which are largely consumed throughout
the country, by all classes of people,
there is a percentage of alcohol which
puts them on a level with l>eer, rum and
whisky as intoxicants. It is the small
ness only of the dose prescribed which
prevents a prompt recognition of the in
toxicating effects of these so-called medi
cines by those who use them.
" It is safe to affirm that they are
MEDICINES IN NAME ONI<Y.
Their chief ".due lies in their alcoholic
effect as a stimulant In fact, those who
know, attribute the benefits ascribed to
this ciass of medicines wholly to the
stimulative effect of the alcohol they
contain. They are used largely by per
sons not in the habit of drinking liquors,
and the little dose taken three or four
time a day is as stimulating to these
people as his regular "finger" of "bit
ters" is to the regular liquor-drinker.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
''What ought to be done at least is to
compel every patent-medicine manufact
urer to put on the wrapper of his bottle
the quantity of alcohol it contains. That
would at least leave people to exercise
their own judgments. More than that,
no paper truly interested in temperance
reform should print the advertisement
of any alcoholic medicine. It should be
the duty of every temperance organiza
tion and branch in the country to look
into this question, agitate it, and deal
with the facts just as earnestly and as
honestly as other facts have been dealt
Appreciating the gravity of the issue
raised by the strong statement of facts
made in the foregoing article, we wish
to call general attention to the fact that
Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery
and Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription
NO ALCOHOL, NO WHISKY, NO INTOXI-
CANT OF ANY KIND.
These medicines are equally free from
opium and other narcotics.
They are in the strictest meaning of
she words, temperance medicines. Of no
other medicine, put up especially for
woman's use can it be truthfully affirmed,
as of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription,
that it contains neither alcohol nor opium
or other narcotic in any form.
While the negative features of Doctor
Pierces medicines may only interest
some of the readers of 'his article, the
positive features of these medicines must
be of interest to every one. The great
value of "Golden Medical Discovery"
in the cure of diseased or deranged con
ditions of the stomach and digestive and
nutritive organs is testified to by tens of
thousands who have found health and
healing in this great remedy. The " Dis
covery" increases the action of the blood
making glands, and by curing the dis
eases which corrupt and cripple the
stomach and digestive and nutritive or
gans, it enables a full and pure supply of
blood to be s^-nt to every part of the body.
WOMEN KNOW ITS WORTH.
Women who are always appreciative
of benefits, have been especially appre
ciative of the benefits following the use
of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. Its
wonderful cures of irregularities, inflam
mations, ulcerations ami female troubles,
have caused women, to name it. "that
God-send to women." It is entitled to
wear the " blue ribbon " of merit as well
as the blue ribbon of temperance.
