Oregon railroad men who have been
watching the great interest shown by
the Easterners in the Pacific North

Band Concert
Salem, May 12, (Special to the Ga
zette). The OAC Band concert at Che
mawa in the afternoon "was well re
ceived. There was a good crowd and
: fine work done by all the boys, the
audience being highly appreciative. At
Salem in the evening the work of the
band excelled that of previous perform- ;
ances. The audience was highly en
thusiastic, showing .the boys that Salem
people know how to appreciate a good
entertainment. ' .
Mrs. Genevieve Baum-Gaskins won
her audience completely and cheerfully
responded to a hearty encore. "
The solo numbers by Woodcock and
Luper were well receiyed, Woodcock
making a decided hit as a trombonist.
Luper also received most favorable
mention. -
The boys are very .grateful to the
people here for the treatment accorded
them. There were ten numbers on the
program and the band received seven
encores. The band will appear in Hills
boro Wednesday night, finishing the
trip at McMinnvilJe Thursday night.
Deff ry Company
Remains Longer
.It was announced last night that the
ItefEry -Company would r-emain here two
mere nights. The applause subsequent
to this .information indicated general
approbation. . Manager Groves is cer
tainly to be congratulated on securing
this clever company of artists and as
long as he dishes up such choice delect-
ables he will receive the cream of patronage.
Miss Deffry certainly has proven her
self to be versatile. Her portrayal of
jealous old German housewife last
night was in such striking contrast to
the other roles she has assumed that it
stamped her at once an artist of great
virility. "La Belle Russe," .a four act
society drama, was announced . for to

Northwest the next six months. - This
estimate looks extravagant at first, but
when it is considered that Seattle will
have a fair lasting all summer and that
there are more than 20 conventions to
be held in the four cities of the North
west Portland, Tacoma, Seattle and
Spokane all of them drawing their
hundreds and thousands of attendants,
these figures will seem more reason
able. .v - ,'."
It should be remembered that the
low round-trip tourist rate is effective
earlier than usual, and that practicably
every visitor to the Seattle Exposition
(save in local territory) will visit Port
land during the; trip. .. Account ' should
also be made of the fact that the trans
continental railroads are spending about
$2 in - advertising- the Northwest lisi3
year to -every $1 spent in any preceding
yetir. Advertising -budgets of Hill,
Harruuan, Milwaukee, Canadian Pa
cific, Denver. & Rio Grand and other

Officials of the Hill lines figure that
dose to 1,000,000 Coast-bound travelers
will pass through the St. Paul gate-
way during the next six months, about
400,000 via Great Northern, 400,000 via
Northern Pacific and 200,000 via Mil

Canadian Pacific officials believe they
are conservative in estimating that

lines in this field this summer. These
figures .are given out at the Montreal
office of the Canadian Pacific. ; '
Every traffic man connected with all
the transcontinental railroads is whoop

their tickets via Oregon points, either

likewise. And. as particularly signifi

The setting of the play is in the room
of three pretty seminary girls. These
characters are ably represeuted by the
Misses Mattie Wells, Beulah Beeler and

the other girls have retired. So they
seek the assistance of the helper at, the

Nelson Family with
Sells-Floto Shows
There are many novel acts with the
Sells-Floto Shows which are certain to
be well received in every city lucky
enough to secure a visit from the con
solidated, -enterprises. There are acts
which were never seen in America un
til this show opened its season of 1909,
for the reason that there was no amuse
ment enterprise great enough to afford
the large salaries which the artists de
mand and no institution with sufficient
prestige to attract the attention of such
celebrated performers. .
