EXPLOITS THE WEST
Southern Pacific Announces a
New Co-operative Plan.
HELPS ADVERTISE CITIES
Communities In the Pacific North
west Will Be Aided In Securing
Publicity by Two w
Announcement has been made by the
passeng-er department of the Southern
Pacific Company of a new and strikingly
original plan to attract the attention of
the world to the advantages of the Pa
cific Coast. The plan contemplates a
large expenditure of money by the rail
road for every community on the Coast
which is willing to co-operate In the mat
ter. The proposition Is belli-? made to the
cities of the Pacific Northwest first and
has already been adopted' by several of
Briefly, the Idna is far the rail read to
Id communities In publicity work. The
railroad plans to concentrate the efforts
of communities along distinct lines so
thst all question of satisfactory returns
will be eliminated. So thoroughly Is the
pnssenirer department convinced as to
the feasibility and desirability of the plan
which has been formulated that It Is
willing to back It up with an outlay of
from possibly tlOOO.OO to J30nO.OO In each In
stance. Tt Is Impossible, however, to es
timate accurately the value of the serv
ices which the Southern Paclllc Company
Offers in connection with this plan,
which Is the result of many years' ex
perience In community advertising and a
development of the co-operative features
of the passenger department of the
Southern Pacific Company with Western
communities. Tt hss been formulated in
the belief that It solves many of the per
plexing problems as to the wise expendi
ture of the publicity funds.
Experience proves that communities of
ten make one of the following mis-takes:
First, that the literature that they pre
sent is unattractively gotten up: second,
that the text is unconvincing: third, that
the distribution of the booklets is poor;
or. fourth, that the booklets are stored
In the desks of business men until the
Information they contain is worthless.
In order that the Southern Pacific
Company might mept such conditions and
co-operate with communities so that their
publicity funds miRht be Judiciously ex
pended, the first problem to solve was In
connection with the proper distribution
of literature. For this purpose tills com
pany has organized two information bu
reaus: The Sunset Magazine Homeseek
ers" Bureau of Information and the Sun
set Magazine Travel Bureau of Informa
tion. As Indicated, these bureaus will be
conducted by the Sunset Magazine, and
the Southern Tacific Company plans to
make them the most complete bureaus of
their kind in the country. Tlomeseekers
In every part of the world are to be
given accurate information free of
charge about any section In the West.
This Homescekers' Bureau will also-cooperate
with communities in the distri
bution of literature, offices for which
have been established In, Portland. S-in
Francisco and Ios Angeles In connect n
with Sunset Magazine.
" In addition to making a free distribu
tion of literature and In aiding communi
ties in getting Into touch with Inquiries
In reference to their particular sections,
the new plan contemplates the prepara
tion nnd publication of high-grade liter
ature for each community practically at
the expense of the Southern Pacific Com
pany. Writers of experience are to pre
pare the manuscripts for booklets abso
lutely freo of charge to communities and
It Is expected that very effective argu
ments will be produced for the Pacific
Northwest. These unusual features for
the plan have been adopted because the
Southern Pacific Company has found by
long experience that poor literature Is a
waste of money.
Attractive booklets with editions vary
ing from S0.000 to 100.000 copies or more
will be gotten up by Sunset Magazine
Homeseekers" Bureau, which will make
a distribution of the publications through
five channels: First, to Pacific points cov
ered by the Bureau: literature of the
Pacific Northwest points will be sent to
Southern California and to San Fran
cisco and there distributed through the
various agencies of the Southern Pacific
Company to homeseekers in that sec
tion of the country. Second Literature
will be sent to names which have been
furnished the Bureau by the allied Har
rtman Lines of people In the East who
contemplate moving Westward. 9uch
names, for example. have been fur
nished to the O. R. & N. Company by
friends or relatives of such people in
Oregon or Washington. Third Litera
ture will be sent to the principal cities
of the country (such as Salt Lake City,
Denver. Omaha. Kansas City, St. Louis,
New Orleans, Chicago and New Tork) in
which the Harriman Lines have repre
sentatives. There lias been a continued
demand for such literature from people
living, near the centers mentioned and
who contemplate moving Westward. It
is planned to' place booklets of com
munities not only with the agents of the
Harriman lines in the larger towns, but
also so that they shall reach and be dis
tributed In the network of the smaller
towns which are covered by the Harri
man Lines. Fourth Distribution of lit
erature will be made to names -that are
secured as a result of a very extensive
advertising campaign on the part of the
Southern Pacific Company. Ordinarily
the advertising fund at San Francisco
and Portland amounts to over 250,000.00
per year. As a result of this large ex
penditure of money the Southern Pacific
Company receives thousands of inquiries
for specific information and it is to such
names that the Pacific Coast booklets
will be sent Fifth Distribution will be
made to tho representatives of the Har
riman I J lies In Europe, the headquarters
of which are in Liverpool. England.
The Harriman Lines publish a maga
zine called "Abroad" simultaneously in
Liverpool. London. Antwerp and Ham
burg. This publication will co-operate with
the new movement by the railroad and
will reprint parts of the booklets that are
issued by Western communities. The
circulation of this magazine reaches a
very desirable class of immigrants and
It is expectrd that the distribution of the
booklets and the publication of extracts
in reference to the Pacific Coast and the
Pacific Northwest will aid very material
ly in bringing to the Pacific Coast a large
number of the desirable and much-needed
The Southern Pacific Company recently
bad its official photographer mak a large
number of views in Oregon. These views,
supplemented with new ones taken from
time to time, are to be used in connec
tion with this publicity plan.
Sunset Magazine is to be the official
organ of the entire project and will be
developed very materially along these
lines. The aid that Sunset Magazine, will
render the movement Is of an important
character. For each community co
operating with the railroad, the magazine
will have prepared and will publish free
a first-class Illustrated article about the
community. In short, the plan In Its en
tirety contemplates thorough co-operation
between the railroad and communi
ties of the Coast for their upbuilding,
and it Is believed that it wiU tfo much
toward .accelerating the movement west
ward. The entire proposition, however,
is contingent upon communities taking a
page advertisement in Sunset Magazine
for a year.
The Pacific Northwest department of
Sunset Magazine is in charge of Mr.
William Bittle Wells, who is responsible
for the adoption of this new co-operative
plan. The offices of Sunset Magazine
and the new bureaus are In the AVells
Fargo building. In connection with the

MULLER APPEAL IN COURT
Oregon Ten-oHur Labor Suit Argued
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15. The right
of a. state Legislature, under the Con
stitution of tho United States, to enact
a law prohibiting the employment of
female laborers for more than ten
hours & day, is involved in the case of
Muller against the State of Oregon,
which was argued before the Supreme
Court of the United States today. As
sistant Attorney Geweral Adams, of
Oregon, and L. D. Brandels, of Boston,
appearing for the state, and William D.
Fen ton, of Oregon, for Muller.
Muller is a Portland, Or., laundryman,
who was prosecuted for a violation of
the law and, being found guilty, ap
pealed the case, and then attacked the
law as In contravention pf the Consti
tution because it stands in the way of
freedom in the making of private con
tracts. JURY TO TRY HALL CASE
(Continued from First -Page.)
Judgo Webster, but when asked by Mr.
Heney if he thought he could serve Bf a
juror and render a verdict according to
the sworn tesnony tno law, he
"Fellows Got the Land."
"No. I don't think I could."
"And why not?" followed Mr. Honey.
"Because I think these fellows got the
land," was the positive reply.
Of the next two names called from
the list, Eli Ramer, a farmer, residing at
CYabtree, Linn County, was accepted, but
John Henry, a Washington County farm
er, was excused by the defense under its
second peremptory challenge.
L. Frank Moore a farmer residing at
Dayton, Yamhill County, felt that he
could not fairly try the defendants be
cause he considered that the case at bar
was connected with the general land
fraud prosecutions that already had been
before, the court. Judge Webster object
ed to the juror, alleg'ng" that he was not
qualified to serve, but Mr. Heney, who
insisted on questioning Moore, drew out
the. fact that the juror would cast aside
all feelings he entertained as to the guilt
of the accused, and would render a ver
dict according to the testimony as pre
sented. Judgo Hunt further questioned
Moore and announced that he consid
ered the man qualified to serve.
Judge Webster then exhausted the third
peremptory challrnge of the defense and
excused Moore, at the same time reserv
ing an exception to the ruling of the
court as to the Juror's competency.
At this stage in the proceedings, the
defense had used up all of its peremp
tory challenges and the Government had
only one left. The next Juror called to
the box was J. M. V. Bllyeu, of Linn
County. He was acceptable to the de
fense, but Heney associated him Indirect
ly with Dorgan and Devine, two dealers
in lands, and with a representative to
whom Bllyeu had sold a timber claim he
had acquired. On this showing Heney ex
hausted his final peremptory challenge
and caused Bllyeu to be excused. This
announcement from the Government's
representative caused an audible sigh to
escape from that side of the table occu
pied by the defendants and their counsel.
Last Juror In Box.
Only a few minutes were then required
to select the last juror, and, after a vig
orous questioning. Henry Freerksen. a
retired L'nn County farmer, was accepted
by both sides.
There is no explanation as to how the
name of L. C. Schorno, of this city, was
included In the Jury list for this term of
the Federal Court, other than that it was
purely an oversight. Schorno had served
as a Juror at the trial of Clarence B.
Zachary in August, 1906. when the latter
was found guilty of perjury. Under the
rules governing the drawing of jurors
Schorno Is disqualified from serving as
iuror aealn for two years. If Attorneys
Webster and Wilson observed this irreg
uiaruy, tney saia notnmg. ana ua-u. piu
ceeded with the examination of the Juror
as to his qualifications to serve In the
case on trial when Heney called the at
tention of the opposing counsel to the
fact that Schorno was disqualified. The
juror, by consent of both sides, was ex
cused by the court.
Had Schorno been accepted and a ver
dict 'found against the defendants, tech
nical grounds would have " been afforded
for a reversal of the judgment.
Before adjourning court until 10 o'clock
this morning Judge Hunt announced that
the other jurors would be excused from
further attendance on the court until 10
A. M. next Tuesday, January 21.
Drunken Juror Aids Mexican.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash., Jan. ' 15.
(Special.l-udge Preble, of the Superior
Court, today took under advisement the
motion for a new trial In the case of Jos
eph Flanney. Mexican half-breed, convict

shooting of his wife last Summer. The
ground of the motion was the alleged In
toxication of one of the jurors during

GIVEN AN OVATION
Homer Davenport Lectures at
the White Temple.
AUDIENCE UNDER SPELL
Crowd Assembled to Hear Noted
Cartoonist Forgets Flight of Tim
in Listening to Interesting
Story of Trip Into Arabia.
BT ARTHUR A. GREENE.
It's always a foregone conclusion that
whenever Homer Davenport comes back
to his native state, and it Is announced
that he will stand up in public and talk
to his own kind of people well. It's a
foregone conclusion, which, resolved back
to the last analysis, znea'ns a dead cer
tainty, and in some quarters is under
stood to be "a Jead-plpe cinch." It's
Just as sure that Homer Davenport will
have an audience to hear him as that the
sun will poke its head over the Cascades
on a fair morning and shine upon the just
and unjust who make their habitat .here.
But last night at the White Temple It
was better than all these certainties. The
big First Baptist Church has seldom seen
such a crowd as that which filled every
seat In tho audience room, overflowed
into the ante-chambers and fringed Itself
around the walls, so Intent upon what
was going forward that they forgot the
fact that they were standing, that the
speaker talked for two hours, and that
even the well-carpeted floor of the White
Temple Is hardi on feet.
It was an ovation, that's what It was,
and It made that big, childlike heart of
Homer Davenport swell and grow mel
low when he saw what the home folks
had done in his honor. I've seen a lot
of audiences, and many of them were in
terested ones, but never have I seen a
lecturer shown such intent attention as
that one. When Mr. Davenport an
nounced In the last five minutes of his
remarks that he was on the point of
quitting, some of the men In that big
crowd shouted "go on," and threatened
to Insist that there would be no going
home unless he kept It up for another
hour or two.' That naturally made the
speaker feel good and proved beyond a
peradventure that the Homer Davenport
lecture was one of the biggest successes
In the talk' line that was ever negotiated
Introduced by Mr. Scott.
Mr. Davenport was introduced by
Harvey W. Scott, who has been a life
long friend of him and of his family. It
was eminently fitting that Mr. Scott
should make the introduction, for the act
had a personal significance to every one
In the audience. Every one felt that
there was no hollowness in the words he
spoke, that they came out of the sin
cerity of long years of friendship and
mutual understanding. It was a most
appropriate introduction. Mr. Scott said:
I am to Introduce to you a native son
of Oregon, who. however. Is so well known
as to need no introduction. All .know him,
though some of you may not have had the
pleasure heretofore of meeting him. From
one side of this continent to the other his
pencil has made him known: and he has
honored Oregon in his character as a man,
as well as by the facility, originality and
Judgment displayed in his work. Nor is
he merely a sketch artist or cartoonist
though his skill In work, of this kind has
been the source of his fame. He is a lover
of nature, fond of rural life, regards his
horses and other animals as part of his
family, comes back to Oregon as often as
he can, drawn hither by his love of the
land of his nativity, and by an unforgettlng
filial duty for his father still lives in the
old Oregon home.
In the work of blB pencil humor and
good will to men are blended with serious
ness and earnestness and light touches of
satire, but never with a touch of malice.
He is a hearty and Jolly fellow, too. as u
all may judge, by looking upon him the
much better when it is your good fortune
to come Into Intimacy with him. He Is a
splendid companion and talks well, and
when he takes the platform the spirit of his
presence as well as the quality of his mat
ter will entertain you. I Introduce Homer
Davenport, of Oregon, New York, New
Jersey and the United States; a citizen of
the world also, who is a man to whom
nothing that concerns man is foreign or in
different. I present Homer Davenport.
Audience Forgets Time.
There was a veritable tumult of ap
plause when . Mr. Davenport arose to
speak, and) he was followed with the
closest attention during the entire ad
dress. Everybody forgot the passing of
time. There was not a suggestion of
restlessness and there was general re
gret when It was over. That crowd would,
have gladly stayed until the last car.
It is an impossible task to report a
Homer Davenport lecture. There must be
the wonderful personality of the man al
ways in the foreground, never obtrusive,
but absolutely essential to the charm of
what he has to say. He told stories of
his early Oregon days, sometimes with
the unction of the greatest of comedians
and sometimes pathetic, with the simple,
unaffected naturalness of a man' who does
not deck himself with the poses and trap
pings associated with celebrities.
The greater portion of his remarks was
devoted to his recent tour of Arabia,
which he described in a wonderfully
graphic manner. There were repeated
bursts of applause, and at the close there
was a spontaneous demonstration which
lasted for several minutes. The entire af
fair reflected grat credit on the White
Temple congregation and was admirably
