ALL RECORDS OF LOCAL
GREAT INCREASE NOTED
Immense Growth of Trade Can Be
Traced Directly to Establish
ment of Commiieion House
at This Point.
The recent holiday trade was the
largest ever enjoyed by the business
men of Oregon City. For the two
weeks previous to Christmas day
every store displaying holiday goods,
was crowded to lta doors witn eager
shoppers from both the city and the
country. In one of the busiest stores
there were -400 more sales on the day
before Christmas than on the same
day last year, and other merchants
report a like Increase in their sales.
This growth In trade is largely. If
not altogether due lo the establish
ment of a commission house in Ore

place of business can hardly be esti

Oregon City where before the opening
of the commission house they only
came here to pay their taxes. The
commission house, under the able di

thing that is offered for sale, and pays
cash. The bulk of this money Is dis

has gone beyond the experimental

people. The return from the expendi
ture of money for publicity purposes
has already been shown and next year

on the waters will come back ten
