The hands broke out. hats were waved
and amid great enthusiasm Speaker Can
non wax ushered to the front of the
stand and delivered an address full of the
well-known logic and wit of the pictur
esque. Speaker of the House. Following
Mr. Cannon, Archbishop Christie pro
nounced the benediction and the formal
ceremonies attendant upon the opening
of the exposition closed. \u25a0 ; , \l'
All Portland was decked in her best,
•business was suspended and the holi
day spirit was everywhere in evidence.
The States of Oregon, Washington and
Idaho, In which June 1 had been de
t-lwed a holiday In honor of the centen
nial, sent thousands of visitors. The
trains of yesterday brought the', van-
Kru&ic of the excursionists and to-day
the iallroads and boat lines entering
Portland have been taxed to their. ,ut-
Jnost. Never- in her history has Port
h'.nd been -called upon to care for so
many people:. '. \u25a0'; •
The prelude to the actual opening
ceremonies at the exposition consisted
of the parade, a grand pageant of mili
tarism, led by Vice President Fair
banks, the Congressional party, visit
ing Gmernors and other dignitaries and
the exposition officials. With martial
music constantly playing this imme
di:r.e forerunner of the actuality was
greeted with continual cheering along
the entire line of inarch, from-, the new
postolnce and through- the business* and
residential sections of Portland to the
fair srrounds. As the troops passed' the
mass of sightseers flanking the .column
fell in behind, and when. the exposition
grounds were reached there ', was a
-stream of humanity miles tin 'length
following in.- their waJtc^r?Thqusands|l|l»

\ promptly at 12 o'clock noon President
H.*W. Goode of the exposition arose and.
gavel in hand, announced the beginning- of
the ceremonies which meant the realiza
tion of Portland's dream. '; The ahnounce
meAt was received with tremendous
cheering, which echoed back and forth
through the multitude for several min
utes. As the echo died away the Right
Rey. David H. Moore, Bishop of the
Methodist Episcopal church, stepping- ta
the front of the platform, raised- his
hands In invocation of the divine blessi
ng. -, \u25a0\u25a0 - • " V
The impressive^ silence which followed'
the* prayer, was .broken as the inspiring,
strains of "Imperial Oregon," a* march;
composed by Innes and dedicated to the
memory of Captains Lewis and Clark and
inscribed to the people or Oregon, was
played by the, band.
Following President . Goode,, Governor
George fe; Chamberlain of the State of
Oregon was introduced. Governor Cham
berlain in a short address congratulated
the people of the State, the city of Port
land and the Lewis and Clark Corpora-,
tlon upon the achievement of an event so
notable in the history of the city and
State. i - \u0084
Hon. Jefferson My^ra, president of the
Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition
Commission for the State of Oregon,. was
enthusiastically applauded when he took
his . position on the rostrum to address
the people on behalf of the State Com
' Perhaps the most enthusiastic applause
which greeted any of the notable speak
ers of the day: was accorded George ; H.
Williams, the Mayor of the city ' of Port
land, whose eighty-two years of life have
not sapped the vigor of his youth nor de
tracted from his ability as a public
speaker. ,
Hon. Clarence D. Clark. of Wyoming,

a bold attempt to hold up City Treasurer
George H. Warford was frustrated* this
morning. As the Treasurer was entering >
the Citizens*, Bank a few minutes before
10 a. in., a roughly dressed young .man
with a slouch hat well down over his face
brushed against Warford and then. ex=
, cused himsel f. :': ' *
Warford cast one look at the man and
turned away. The stranger laid his hand
upon the Treasurer's shouldfer and asked
the time of day/ and at the same time
edging nearer. Without waiting for fur-*
ther developments Warford drew a bis
navy revolver from his pocket and "com
manded the stranger to "get next.'J\ .
The stranger did not protest or try to
explain, but dashed down -the street and
has .not been seen since. The City •Treas
