THE PAItADE. The preludo to the actual opening Ceremonies at tho exposition consisted Bt the parade, a grand pageant of mili tarism, led by Vice-President Fair banks, the congressional party, visit ing governors and other dignitaries and the exposition officials. With martial music constantly playing, this Immediate fore-runner of tho actuality !vas greeted with continued cheering along the entile lino of march from tho new postoffloe and through the business and residential sections of Portland to tho fair grounds. As the troops passed, tho mass ot sightseers flanking the column, fell In behind and, when the exposition grounds were reached, there was u stream of human ity miles long following its wake. Thousands in tho meantime, antici pating tho onward rush, hnd packed themselves around tho speakers' stand and occupied every point of vantage, and late comers had to bu content with being within seeing distance. As the parado swung into the ground the vicc-prosldentlal, congressional ami lair parties wcio detached from column and were escoitcd hy the cavalry between long lines of cheering thousands to the New York State bulldin . Almost simul taneously bodies of troops took their posi tions on the esplanade, extending from the rear ot tho speakers' stand down to the lake front. Grand Marshal ot the Day Colonel H. '.. Stover, 4th cavalry, C p. A., had distributed tho soldierly about the grounds to hold the crowds In check nd preserve order generally. Everything being In readiness, at 11:13 O'clock Vice-President Fairbanks nnd party emerged from tho Now York State Building receiving the viee-presldentlal aalute of IS guns. Flanked on either sido by a line of troops, tho party walked to the speakers' stand. As tho word was passed that the party wa coming, nn air cf expectancy settled over the crowd, avhlch gave way to a tremendous out break of cheering and handclapping as ylo. official party ascended tho speakers )!atform. CEHEMONIF.S I5EOUN. Promptly at twelve o'clock noon, Prosl. 0cnt H.

Do you have shortness of breath, weak or hungry spells, fainting.smothcring or choking spells, palpitation, fluttering, pains around the heart, in side and shoulder; or hurt when lying on left side? If you have any of these symptoms your heart is weak or diseased, and cannot get better without assistance. Dr. Miles' Heart Cure strengthens weak hearts, and rarely ever fails to cure heart disease. Try it, and see how quickly you will find relief. "About January 1st. 1901, I took down with weakness and dropsy, and gradually grew worse. I was told by my family physician that my cans was hopalsss. Ify neighbors ana fam ily . had i Iven mo ud to die.

Tho an nouncement was received with tremend ous cheering which echoed back nnd forth through the crowd for several min utes. As tile echo died away tho Itt, ltev. David II. Moore, bishop ot tho Methodist Episcopal Church, stepping to the front ot tho pint form, raised his hand and In voked tho dlvluo blessing. A perceptlhlo stillness prevailed In thn vast throng us the prayer was spoken, Tho Impressive slletico which followed tho prayer was broken as tho Inspiring strains of "Imperial Oregon," u march composed by Inncs nnd dedicated to the memory of Captains twls and Clark and Inscribed to tho people of Oregon, was played by tho band. While the last notes of tho music reverberated through the grounds, and before the great ap plause which greeted the rendition of tho piece had subsided, President (loode again rose to address tho people. Ills appear ance on tho rostrum was the signal for renewed cheering which continued for several minutes. Finally, in response to his', appealing gestures, the president was permitted to begin his address welcom ing the people of tho United States as tho guests of the exposition. OTHEH SPEAKERS. Following President Ooode, tlov. Ocorgo Chamberlain ot tho Slato of Oregon was Introduced, (iovernor Chamberlain In a short address congratulated the people of tho State, tho city of Portland and the. Lewis and Clark corporation upon the achievements of an event so notnblo In the history of the city and State. I'he lion. Jefferson livers, president of the Lewis and Clark Centennial commit tee of tho State of Oregon, uis enthus iastically applauded when he teuk his po sition on tho rostrum to address the peopln on behalf of the people. Perhaps the most enthusiastic applause which greeted any of the notable speak ers was accorded the lion, (Seorge II. Williams, the mayor of the city of Port land, whose fc2 years of life have not supped the vigor of his youth nor de tracted from his ability as a public speaker. t'lio Hon. Clarence D. Clark of Wyom ing, representing tho United States Sen ate, was next to extend felicitations upon tho opening of tho exposition.

The congratulations and felicitations of the various departments of tho United States government upon tho completion of the exposition were expressed by tho Hon. A. A. Taylor, first assistant sec retary of the treasury and chairman of the united States government board. OVATION TO FAIRBANKS. At this period of the programme tho steadily Increasing enthusiasm of the multitude found expression in a tremend ous ovation to Vice-President Charles W. Fairbanks, the personal representative of tho President of the United States. Through his previous visits to this city, notably during the national campaign, Mr. Fairbanks became somewhat In timately known to the people of the city nnd State. When he was at last able to make himself heard above the noise of the greeting he said, in part: FAIIMIANKS'S SPEECH. "President Roosevelt has taken a very great interest in the Lewis and Clark ex position from its inception, and It is at bis request, and on bis behalf, 1 have tho groat honor of participating with you in theso opening ceremonies. "Wc commemorate an Important event in American history. We pay tribute to tlio intrepid explorers who made their aiduous expedition to tho Missouri, across the Rocky mountains, down to the Paeltie, and pointed tin; way to this land of incomparable opportunity. Their famo is secure where the deeds of men of heroic mold are forever recorded. They were tlm lore-runners of a high order of civilization in a territory which, prior to their venturesome enterprise, was terra incognito. It was a wilderness, Inhabited by tho aborigines, into which no white man had entered; it has btconio tho seat of empire of vast commercial power. Wo look upon their work with genuine ad miration nnd grateful appreciation. "Tho expedition which we celebrate was in the command of Capt. Mariwether Lewis, who had been tho private secre tary of President Jefferson and of Capt. William Clark, a brother of (leorgo Rog ers Clark, who rendered such signal and lusting service on tho frontier during the American Revolution. "This exposition has risen as an expres sion of the gratitude ot tho people for what brave men wiought for humanity and civilization 111 the long ago. "Wo must havo n vigilant euro for our increasing Interests in the Orient. Wo must cultivate relations of amity with the millions who dwell beyond tho Pac ific. Theio lies a Hold of vast trade, which wo have but slowly and In adequately gained. Our foothold is stead ily increasing, and if we are but true to out opportunities it will bo Immeasur ablv enlarged to the advantage of the entire country. If wo would hnvo tho trade of tho peoples of tho Far East, wo must tirst have their conlldcnce. Moreover, vn must suit our commodities to the needs of thoso with whom we would tralllc; wo must study their tastes and their whims and minister unto them. Whilo our goods may suit us, they may not bo ndaptcd to tho requirements or satis fy tho desires of people in other coun tries." SPEAKER CANNON HEARD. Jos. CI. Cannon, speaker of ihe House of Representatives, after the npplauso which greeted bis appearance on tho ros trum, said that President Roosevelt's horse bad been waiting for an hour and n half for tho President to start the ex position. Ho said that although he did not expect to seo tho President for four or five days and presumed that his right cous indlgnntlon would havo cooled by then, nevertheless, he did not purpose to detain him longer, and so would wait for tho President to press the button. MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT. Tho presidential sal u to of twenty-ono guns was tho signal to tho Impatient throng that tho moment for tho opening of tho exposition was at hand, Upon ii telegraph operator, seated at nn instru ment on tho speakers' stand, the eyes of the multitude wore riveted, and whllo the guns were still booming, tho move ment of his hand at the key was a suf. flclent Indication to the watchers that President Roosevelt was being advised that all wns In readiness to recolve tho signal from the White House which would formally open the exposition. Then followed a wait of several min utes marked by an Impressive stillness, during which eye and ear was strained to catch the first move of thn operator'i hand or a sound from tha telegraph In strument. Suddenly out of tha quiet came a faint click, President Roosevelt's signal, and Oregon's greatest hour had come, Almost simultaneously with tho click ing of the telegraph Instrument Preal dent Qoodo'a gavel foil and he proclaim- WiI It (Sure Consumption?

Avoid all such unprincipled dealers. ed the exposition open. After tho receipt ot the President's signal starting the ex position tho massed bands played "Tho Star Spangled Manner." As soon as tho bands ceased. Speaker Cannon spoke. At the conclusion of his address, thn hands, with a thunderous accompaniment of field artillery again broke out with "The Star Spangled Runner." When, through th" people's inability to continue tho rejoicing longer, quiet was rertored, the benediction was pronounced by the Most Hev. Alexander Christie, archbishop of Oregon City. After the playing of the national anthem, which followed the benediction, all heads re mrinod uncovered. As tho centennial salute of 100 guns, tho closing of tho ceremonies, was being given, the re joicing broke out again, nnd the crowd threw Itself Into the abandon of holiday maklnir. RFCRPTION" AXU RKKI1KSHMENTS. Following tho conclusion of the literary programme, the official party guests re paired to the New York State building, whore refreshments wero served and nn Informal reception was hold. In the mean time vast numbers of the sightseers fol lowed the Injunction to "hit tho trail," the exposition midway. All portions of the exposition grounds received their quota of visitors nnd tho various State buildings and exhibit places were thronged with people. The peninsula, on which Is situated the government building and exhibits, attracted lr.rgo crowds of sightseers.
