Even the city streets approaching the main entrance gate have been paved and parked and the street railway system of the city will soon have five double tracked car lines leading to the exposition. Seattle is Preparing. And Seattle, as a city, is getting ready to receive her guests. On every hand great preparations are being made. Seattle is going to be one of the best lighted cities in the country and great cluster , lights will soon be burning on the main streets. The thoroughfares leading to the exposi tion grounds have just been paved and the whole scheme of improve ments brings up with the beautiful grounds of the exposition as a fitting climax. ' For the exposition is going to be the most beautiful ever held and with mountains, lakes and forests as background for the works of art done in flowers by the landscape artists this exhibition of the Pacific will be a rare combination , of architectural skill and natural beauty which will no doubt Burpass any exposition ever held. Exhibits are commencing to arrive by the car load. New York and Can ada will soon have their buildings complete.

This will be the larg est log house ever buflt and nearby is California's exposition home, a hand some , building of Spanish mission ar chitecture, both just a stone's throw from the state of Oregon's big build ing and across the street from the Washington state building. Much Advertised. The . Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposi tion, much advertised because It will exploit Alaska, that wonderful district of alomst inexhaustible riches, is now ready and will complete to the small est detail June 1, 1909 the date for the official opening. .- , Exhibits of the finest specimens of the silversmith's art and Tiffany's fragile glass will be on display at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition at Se attle thissummer. None of the exhib its, representing an expenditure of more than $225,000 will be on sale and the display will be one of the features of the fair. The exhibit of silver has been loan ed by the Gorham Manufacturing com pany, and consists, of nine pieces each worth a small fortune, the leading one being the .celebrated century vase manufactured for an exhibit at the Co lumbian exposition and never since exhibited. This vase illustrates in its design the progress of a century on the Am erican -continent, starting "from early Indian days and ' carrying s the Idea through1 the transitions of war and piece, development and progress to the civilization and prosperity which marked the closing decade of the last century. This vase is four feet two inches high and five feet four inches across, the base. Is made of solid sil ver and weighs 2,000 ounces. The value of the vase is not determined, as the vase is not for sale, but it is insured for $35,000. Four smaller vases accompany the century vase. Some Costly Exhibits. Two other pieces In the exhibit are a lady's desk and chair of solid silver of ornate workmanship, easily worth $25,000. The silver exhibit of the irornam Manufacturing company at the exposition totals $150,000 in value. The Tiffany fragile exhibit is fam ous and has been much exhibited abroad in recent years. The glass la regarded as the highest development of the glassblower's art, excelling in richness of coloring. The Tiffany ex hibit is valued at $75,000. - A minature farm has been estab lished at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific ex position where the products of the Btate will be cultivated as an object lesson to the visitors to the fair at Seattle this summer. It is hoped that such a farm will do much towards in creasing Interest in the clearing of logged off lands of the state. On the exposition grounds is a pro ducing farm in every stage of its vo lution from the country as the timber cutter has left It. showing practical demonstrations of the several meth ods of clearing. This it is believed will lead to a brisk demand among the eastern visitors to the fair for the logged off lands of the state. To Run Excursions. To create further interest excur sions will be run to the various sec tions of the state where the logged off lands are fast being converted in to great producing farms. .The mina ture farm at the exposition will sug gest the possibility of development and the excursions to places 'where such work is being done on a large scale will no doubt meet with the ap proval of thousands of visitors to the 1909 exposition as well as their pat ronage after they see the land as It really is. There will also be demonstrations of the wonderful : productiveness " of the virgin soil of the state which will stand greatly in contrast with ! the worked-out farms of the east. This condition will commend Itself to the eastern farmer who visits the fair. The very fact alone that two crops of potatoes can be produced every year on the same ground in ; the Puget 8ound country is a fact that will prob ably surprise many easterners. The miniature farm has been platt ed into small rectangular blocks which have afforded an excellent op portunity for the good roads instruc tors and landscape artists to sow the germs of modern road construction ana the art of beautifying the farms which will have the effect of making life on the farm and in the country mora attractive. Practical demonstra tions of berry raising will also he mad on tha small farm. .... , .... PRESIDED T TJIFT HAS A LARGE J01 His Efforts to Reduce the Ex penses of Government Are Gigantic. HE HAS MANY HANDICAPS SOME OF THE CABINET MEMBERS WHO STARTED THIS REFORM ARE NOW ON THE VERGE - OF UTTER OESPAIR. (By 8heldon S.'Cline.) Washington, May 1. President Taf t has tackled and accomplished some pretty sizable tasks but in ' none of them has he ever encountered so many difficulties as are confronting him in his efforts to get the expenses of the government reduced. Some of the members of his cabinet who start ed an early campaign for economy in their departments are at the verge of despair and almost ready to abandon the undertaking as hopeless. Up at the capitol the tariff makers discovered that everybody is willing and anxious that the Import taxes should be reduced on everything ex cept on the particular products in which be is interested. It is the same with cutting expenses. Every man who works for Uncle Sam is an earn est believer in economy and is anx ious to see It practiced in every de partment except his own. But every time the paring knife is applied some one lets out an awful howl. r No Reduction Advised.' The head of a department summons a bureau chief and asks how much of a reduction it is possible to make in the cost of operating the particular bureau. "Not a cent. Mr. Secretary, not a cent," the chief will earnestly exclaim. "As a matter of fact, we simply must have more money in or der to keep up with our work. You see, the work we are doing means a saving of 'steen millions of dollars a year to the American people and it would be the poorest sort of economy to curtain it." Then the bureau chief enters upon a long and learned dis quisition and when he has done the secretary has to admit that here at least is one bureau upon which the vandal hand of retrenchment must not be laid. He summons another bureau chief and hears the same sort of a story, only more so. This man proves conclusively that the fate of the American republic depends abso lutely upon; his getting an increased appropriation for the coming fiscal year. And so it goes throughout all the bureaus of his department. When he comes to sum up the results of his retrenchment campaign he finds, be is committed to asking congress to give his department about twenty-five per cent more money than it had for the current year. f ;VS : - v Realizes the Situation. He doesn't dare take a report like that to the next meeting of the cab inet, in the face of the president's positive instructions that estimates must be cut; and be knows he can not -cope with the chiefs of his bur eaus, most of whom have been in the department more years than the cabi net member has days. It certainly is a discouraging situation and it is lit tle wonder that some of the men who came here on the 4th of March full of energy and enthusiasm for their work and serenly confident- of their own powers to achieve results already have begun to wear v a furtive and hunted look and to spend sleepless nights in dread of the approaching hour when 'they must , make a first ac counting of the stewardship. HAS VATERY GRAVE Boone County Prosecutor Was Drowned as Result of Fishing Trip. BODY IS NOT RECOVERED. Lebanon, Ind., May v ; 1. Fred Graves, prosecuting attorney of Boone 1 county, was drowned in Sugar creek just before noon today, Ivan C. Toll, coroner of the county came near per ishing and was rescued in an uncon scious conditlon,.but was revived by hU rescuers. His condition is still criti cal. Mr. Graves and Mr. Tolle were in a boat on tbtelr' way to Terre Haute. The creek was swollen by the decent rains and the water was very swift. When the boat reached a dam it was swept over and capsized and both men thrown into the swirling water. ' The body of Mr. Graves has not yet been recovered, s The two left Thorn town this morning.

Stage hands at the Gennett theatre did not enjoy the kidding evidently aimed at them in a local newspaper Saturday.: Just to what extent their re sentment may have gone is not known but the following statement was sub mitted by them with the request it be published: It was stated in a Saturday evening paper that Miss McVicker seemed to be the only one available to operate the switchboard, at the theatre Friday af ternoon as the regular stage bands bad been lured to the circus. We wish to make the statement it seems that Miss McVicker had never witnessed a circus under canvass and in fact she was the only one of the theatre employes who had the opportunity to see the circus, Each stage band was at his proper place Friday: afternoon and night. In no circumstance .would they desert Mrs. Swisher, the manager and mother of T. M. A. lodge of this city and held in the highest" regards. . As for ope rat ing the switchboard, Miss McVicke: was assisted by two or three of the stqge hands. The beautiful sunset scene spoke about in the other papers was operated by a regular stage hand under the direction of a member of the company. , , (Signed) STAGE HANDS. - The New Phillips. It will be hard for the Crane Find lay company to follow right onto tho heels of the Miss Alice Mortlock com pany and bear up, but they are capable people and will get away well. The little playlet which they are going to put on is "The Room Mate," another story of Yale life, and it is quite amus ing as the one witnessed the past three days, which everybody pronounced as first class. ; Besides these people the Phillips will have McCormack and Wallace, ventril oquists, and the Upside Down Duffy the head balancer. Returns from the election will also be read at the Phillips tomorrow night Two performances at The New Phillips vaudeville house, Monday night, 7:15 and 8:45.

John Donlin and Eaul Huntington, two noted local characters jktlo were classed among the undesirables by the saloon keepers , organization and' con sequently blackllsteflvwere j .arrested this afternoon for Jdrhnk. -Donlin was allowed immunitytfrom ypfroeecntion a few weeks ago on promise to' seek dry territory and go to work. When he faces Judge Converse Monday, it is probable that he will be reminded of the violation of his promise by a double dose in the way of a heavy fine. Huntington was arrested on South Fifth street by Officer Hfl-schfleld a lit tle after 4 o'clock while Donlin was captured on South Seventh street a short time afterwards by Vogeslong. When the free trade bill for the Philippines passes Congress and comes up to President Taft for signa ture, says the Manila Times, he will have a gold pen with a pearl handle made wholly of gold and pearl from the Philippines with which to affix his signature to that important docu ment. Some time ago Manager Scttwlnges, of La Concha button fac tory, conceived the idea of making a pearl handled gold pen and pearl ink stand, to be sent to President-elect Taft as a memento of the Philippines that mlght.be kept on his desk ss a constant reminder of the Islands across the sea.. The stand is made of a large pearl shell, with small knobs of solid silver for feet, and the bottle itself is made from narrow nieces of mother-of-pearl renning lengthwise and completely covering the recepta e'e of glass on the inside. The pen itself is a work of art. with a long shaft of pearl, at the tip of which is the American Zagle. beautifully carv ed with- outstretched wings. .
