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.

Tho Impressive slletico which followed

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

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

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.

Middlebury, June 4. Word has just
leaked out that Harry McCormick, nn
Inmate of the Addison county Jail, await
ing trial at tho coming term ot county
court on a charge of forgery, disap
peared from that Institution early last
Wednesday morning. Just why tho dis
appearance of Mcf'ormlck was kept se
cret until .Saturday Is unknown. An en
trance was effected from the outside of
tho Jail and tho party assisting McCor

to tho building by way of tho door on
the north side of tho building and a

There Is nn nir of mystery about the
