UanU accommMlatinf the pul-
c nor providing for the really
ecessary conveiiiences of the
;atnins of the road. A jclaririK
mtance of the kind w as noticed
urimt tli' Fourth of July holi-
ay when people who had paid
fchfir mon.'y for a lirsi ciusa pus-
ice were compelled to stand all
Ue way from l'ortland to lloul-
,n. Vni1114n with balms in arms
wiving the same treatment as
ihe men. That the company olli
i als knew exactly how many
l.i-kcts were Hold from lloulton
l.) Portland and return there is
r.D doubt and they also knew
when those tickets were return-
and the city :ind county odicers
send to l'ortland for printing
when they can tfet anything
needed rik'ht at home? Some of
these things are beinjf done, and
yet the same people who are do-
inifitset up a horrible howl if
any of their customers k to
l'ortland to trade. When these
thinRS are all considered it is
apparent that the business in
terests ishould have an organiz
ation, Kuch as a Commercial Club
for mutual Protection and benefit.
The slogan already adopted by
the State Manufacturer s Associ
ation, "Oregon (Joods for Oieg-on
People,' the same sentiment ex
pressed in the wail of the l'ort
land business houses, "l'ortland
people should patronize l'ortland
business houses," ahould be
carried on down ith somethinK
like this: St. Helens business
houses can supply St. Helens peo
ple arid St. Helens people should
patronize St. Helens business
houses " We niiht add with
much force of argument that if
the St. Helens business men ex
pect to Ki t the trade they should
let the St. Helens people know
what they are doinj? by adver
tising in the Mist.
