At St. Louis it cost in the neighborhood of $30 to see the "Pike," with Its 70 shows and many of them were not worth the price of admission. The Trail offers 35 of the finest attractions ever includ ed in an exposition. Fancy seeing 35 shows for $7. The most expensive concession on tiie Trail Is the Carnival of Venice, a spectacular production designed by the "King of the Ballet," Bolossy Kiralfy. The price of admission to this attrac tion is 50 cents, and after seeing the show the fee will be pronounced rea sonable. Five hundred persons parti cipate on the stage. The scene is laid ip Venice and by means of some very firte scenic offerings the illusion is faithfully carried out, even to the can als of that Italian city. The canals «f real water. The Carnival of Vehlce is a terpslchorean extravaganza I* the hl|ffheBt order lÆavlnB the Carnlval of Venice the visitor meanders over to the Homer Davenport Farm. Paying 25 cents he enters and beholds the foremost car toonist of the world comfortably seat ed on a rustic bench before a crudely built log house. Surrounding the il Uistrous penman are hundreds of blooded fowls, several specimens of Horses of Arabian blood and a magnifi cent Hambletoninn. Davenport will be found affable, urbane and democratic, and if the visitor Is of the right sort the cartoonist may offer him a modest sketch as a memento. Across the way from Davenport's is the Klondike mining exhibit. This con cession is pre-eminent from an educa tional standpoint and offers the visi tor a truthful portrayal of mining j method- £ vogue in the gold fields ofj Alaska The build n* that houses the snow I« designed Inside In panorama Effect and a full sized placer mine is found in operation. Clean-ups of real gold worth $10.000 are made every hour. The admission is 25 cents. Following the Trail the visitor en ters the Streets of Cairo, paying a fee of 15 cents. He is now in the midst of all that is Egyptian. Strangely garbed people are seen on all sides, now a diminutive donkey belabored by a boy In flowing robe dashes past, or a monstrous camel loaded with human freight lumbers through the street. Fe rocious looking warriors dance about In mock combat. The shrieking strains of curious oriental instruments are wafted from the theater on the soft Oregon ozone. For 25 cents the visitor gains entrance to this foreign show house and spends a pleasant half hour viewing the antics of a strange peo ple. A '-onderful show Is located almost oppo 'te the Streets of Cairo, the In fant Incubators. There Is no gaiety about this concession. It represents the most astonishing achievement of mod^ ern science, the Nurturing of the hu man being by artificial means. In tbe pleasing little building housing this attraction are several ingeniously, con structed Incubators containing real, live infants. Visitors are allowed to gaae at them through plate'glass, and apparently the tots are content to re main in their snug homes. The admis sion to the Infant Incubators is 25 cents. And so on down tbe Trail the visitor may meander. A great many of the straws offer admissions as low as 10 cents. The visitor finds foolish shows sad serious shows, or he may devote bis time to Instructive shows. No matter how bard he "Hits the Troll", he cannot spend more than $7, which will admit him to 85 attractions, unless he cheeses to take In * ohow more than Once.

The" build ings, of which there are a score of con siderable sixe, are complete in every detail and most of the exhibits are ready for inspection. The official hour for the commence ment of the exercises was 1 o'clock, at which time the officials of the exposi tion, state commissioners and disting uished guests, assembled on the lake front. Long before this time the grounds were filled with nearly half the population of Portland and the remainder apparently was thronghlng to the exposition grounds. To the many thousands of the local population were added many more who came in on excursion trains last night and this morning. The first demonstration of the day was a big parade about the grounds. In which military, civic and spectacular features were the attractions. Many bands were in the procession anti thou sands on foot and on horseback added to the attractiveness of the pageant. Folowlng the parade were the open air exercises held on the shore of Guild lake. On the shore of the lake a stand had been erected for the speakers and seats provided for the listeners. Promptly at the time set the assemblage was called to order by President H. W. Ooode, of the exposition, who requested the audience to rise while the. Right Reverened David H. Moore. Metbodist Kpiscopal bishop of Oregon, delivered the invocation. After the march "Im perial Oregon" had been played by Innés' band. President Goode, as the chief executive of the exposition, deliv ered an address, at the conclusion of which he Introduced Vice President Fairbanks as the chief speaker of the day. The vice president's address re viewed at length the achievements of the Pacific northwest country since Its first exploration by Lewis and Clark and spoke of the Importance of the ex position to this section and to the na tion at large.

Mayor Williams welcomed j the visitors on behalf of the city of Portland , and Governor chamberlain extended Kreetln|? for the Btate of 0re _ gon. At the conclusion of the speeches greetings were exchanged between President Roosevelt and President Goode and the exposition was declared t° be formally opened. The speakers' | stand was electrically connected with the White House and President Roose- I GOVERNMENT BUILDING The United States government build ings at the Lewis and Clark centen nial are of a magnitude and splendor worthy of the nation and the occasion. There are five buildings in all. the main structure being connected with three smaller ones by ornate peristyles, while the fourth smaller building, the United States Life Saving Station, is located t west of tfié group, on the shore of| Guild s Lake. The buildings cost $259,- | I The front of th« main building is j spanned by five arches, each 49 feet wide, supported by Corinthian columns] 44 feet high. .The building Is graced by two tower«, each of. which to 28« feet high and surmounted by a dome. The roof of* the main building Is arch ed, the highest point being 136 feet ftom the ground, while at each end to a half dome.

The messages exchanged war* full of good feeling and Internat and showed the most thorough accord of the. people of this section with the chief executive. » A marvelous transformation follow ed the telegraphic signal. Operators here were waiting fos the roeponse from the White House, and as quickly as it came they touched the keys which released the fastenings of the thous ands of banners cm the staffs on tho roofs of all the large exhibit palaces. Simultaneously with the unfurling of the flags all the bands burst forth In melody, and from the chimes in the tower of the government building peal ed the strains of "America.'*' Every man in the great érowd uncovered, and when the last strain of the "martial song had died away the exercises ware brought to an end with a divine ben ediction pronounced by Archbishop Christie. The great enterprise upon which the people of Portland had lav ished hundreds of thousands of dollars and expended unlimited time and en ergy was at last an accomplished fact. Although no special effort was made by the management of the exposition to secure a large attendance for the opening day, the crowd surpassed the most sanguine expectations. The gates were thrown open at 9 o'clock In the morning and the rush began. The street cars were crowded to their ca pacity while countless thousands wend ed their way to the grounds on foot. It was an orderly, good natured crowd, bent on getting its fill of pleasure and 'seeing as much as possible of the open ing formalities. When these were con cluded the sight seeing bgan, and soon the exhibit palaces, the state structures and most of all the amusement section known as "The Trail," were crowded with men, women and children anxious to see as much as possible of the count less wonders of the magic city that has spread itself out in a dazzling panora ma of color with the snow-capped peaks of Mount Hood. Mount Ranter. Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens for a background. The Lewis and Clark Centennial ex position opened today is to contulne until October 15. The exposition oc cupies an area of 400 acres adjoining the principal residence section of Port land, and represents an outlay, approx imately, of $5.900.000. Of this vast sum the United States government appro priated $500.000, and an equal sum was donated by the state of Oregon. The remainder was raised through private enterprise. Of the gross area devoted to the ex position proper 80 acres are on the mainland, and 60 acres form a penin sula which entends into Guild lake. | This lake is a fresh water body 220 acres in extent, separated from the I Wllllmette river by a narrow strip of hlbltion palaces, the building is. from an architectural standpoint, one of the finest In exposition history.

On the edge of the bridge ad joining the mainland the width 1s 150 feet for a distance of 890 feet, and the bridge here is called Jhe Trail. This is the amusement section of the ex position, corresponding to the Midway at the Chicago world's fair snd the Pike at Bt. Louis. Owing to Its unique location the Trail contains many aquatic attrac tions. There are also many other new and attractive forms of amusement here and the visitor in search of nov elties will find more sensations than he can assimilate. .One of the most pretentious of the attractions on the Trail is the Klondike mining exhibit with a placer mine In operation, show ing how the gold 1s taken from the rich regions of the far northwest.
