Retail Hardware Men Advised
to Use Trade Boycott in
"LOYALTY" IS ESSENTIAL
Goods, Say Speakers, Will Prove
Kct That Cheapness Is at Ex
pense of Quality Study or
Costs Ia Urged.
What he termed tha "crowning coll
of the commercial world" was de
nounced yesterday before the convention
of the Oregon Retail Hardware & Imple
ment Dealers' Association, at the Com
mercial Club.' by W. P. Bogardus. of
Mount Vernon. Ohio, retiring president
of th National Retail Hardware Dealers'
Aasoclation. II referred to the so-called
"catalogue houses." which sold goods to
farmers and other customers of th
country stores. The convention ap
plauded Mr. Bngarcus.
"The crisis you are facing." said the
speaker, "can only be evtfded by fight
ing the catalogue merchant with his
own weapon. You must enlist In your
cause the manufacturer. When h sells
to the cstalogue man. Just withdraw
your patronage. Keep up tha fight for
loyal houses. The manufacturer who
wants your trade should In return not
sell to the man who is cutting yottr
throat. K la the only way that I can
see for you to put tha catalogue man
out of business.
Loyalty Is Expected.
"There must be loyalty between tha
manufacturer, tha Jobber and th re
tail merchant. They all have to livo
I to complete the chain In the delivery of
the goods to the customer, and tha
sooner you realize that your trade, or
rather your orders, must go tn tha Job
ber who will protect your business, the
better you will come out In the end.
"Another thing I want to tell you. la
that one way to fight th rale of stoves
through th mall order houses Is to
buy on of these stoves, set It up In
your store and explain' to your patrons
that It's cheap price Is only made by
the reduction of Its quality. The stove
will prove the fact."
H. M. Kinney, of Winona. Minn., pres
ident of the National Manufacturers'
Association, spoke on th subject. "What
It Costs to Do Business." Mr. Kinney
advocated the organization pf cost edu
Tha committee on resolutions will re

Fulton Talks of Canal!
Speaking on the "Panama Canal." eos
I'nlted States Senator C. W. Fulton last
night told the association at its annual
banquet In th Commercial Club what
Its completion means to the Northwest
and the Pacific Coast. Mr. Fulton was
In the United States Senate at the time
the Panama Canal bill waa under dis
cussion and assisted In Its passage. In
his speech he criticised the railroads and
railroad rates from the Atlantic to the
Pacific Coast, and said the only relief
within reach of the Pacific Coast is water
competition the Panama Canal will af
ford. Tnastmaster E. D. Timms introduced
ex-Senator Fulton ss follows:
"There waa a time within the memory
of most of us when Oregon could boast
of a real statesman. H Is still with
us In flesh and blood but temporarily oft
The Introduction was greeted with
prolonged applause. -
Canal Question Uppermost,
"When It wss my privilege to be In
the Senate." said ex-Senator Fulton,
"tha Panama Canal was the burning
question. It -meant much to us. It
meant everything for our undeveloped
resources. Freight rates were all but
prohibitive to business. W regarded
the railroads at that time aa enemies of
"I was reading th other day a tabu
lated statement Issued by the Inter
state Commerce Commission showing
the earnings of railroads sine 188, the
year the commission waa created. In
that year the revenue per ton per mile
was over one cent.' During the next
16 years the earnings of the railroads
showed a stesdy decrease from on cent
per ton per mile to .72 of a cent per ton
per mile, a decrease of 27 per cent per
mile In 1900, and yet their earnings
showed an Increase from S31S.Ooo.000 to
155.000,000. During the time between
1900 and 1910 th earnings per ton per
mile Increased from .72 cents to .78
cents per mile, and in tha meantime th
net earnings increaaed from ISJS.OOO.OoO
to 2938.000,000, but not ona cent waa
saved to this country. The earnings of
the railroads Steadily Increased and th
cost to tha people steadily Increased
Canal Only Relief.
"We looked for a solution, to the
railroad commission, the Interstate
Commerce Commission, and the Stat
Railroad Commissions, but it was Im
possible for them to meet all the de
mands. The only relief for this sec
tion of the country Is the completion
of the Panama Canal. I noticed the
other day that a steamship company
offered to carry lumber to the Atlantic
Coaat for 40 cents a hundred against
the railroad rate of 75 centa a hun
dred, a cut to New Tork and Phila
delphia and other Eastern cities of
nearly one-half. The reason Is that
the Government owna tha railroad
across the Panama Canal and tha fact
that the canal is nearlng completion.
"I hav always thought that the
Panama Canal would not Increase our
trade with th Orient. There Is an im
pression that the Oriental trade will
largely be diverted by th completion
of the canal under existing conditions.
But these conditions will not contlpua
as tbey exist today. The manufactur
ing and products are always nearest
to the point of delivery. As the de
mand in tha Orient grows tha supply
grows and the Pacific Coast and the
Paclflo Coast metropolis of trade nat
urally affords the nearest point of de
livery. Th great Orient Is awaken
ing and as It requires our fruit and
our products It will look the nearest
port and that port will be found on
the Paclflo Coast.
"I bellev we should encourage, coast
business and to do ao we must mak
free to our ships, passage through the
canal that are engaged tn a coastwise
business. The Pacific Coast Is entitled
to the benefit of the industries of tha
people of the East. What I mean is
this: If wa get first entree, first en
trance Into New York. Philadelphia
and other Eastern cities, we must have
a small advantage over foreign ships
that sail through the Panama . Canal
1 br giving our own ships free passage.

PORTLAND TIKES LEAD
SPOKAXE'S SPURT CROWDS TA
COSIA FROM LAST PLACK.
Y. M. C. A. Membership Contest
Grows In Interest Coveted Goal
Is Sure of Attainment.
Portland gained another lap on Seat
tle yesterday In the Young Men's Chris
tian Association membership contest, In
which these cities, Tacoma and Spokane
are the competitors. When telegrams
were exchanged last night. It was found
that Portland had added 141 members
during the day, while Seattle had
gained only 86. As Portland already
has a slight lead, the local associa
tion has now 1906 points, aa compared
with 1680 points for Seattle.
Another feature yesterday was tha
showing made by Spokane, which re
ported 65 new members, or more than
It had gained in the three previous
days of the contest This spurt by Spo
kane crowded Tacoma out of third
place and put Spokane only 500 polnta
behind Seattle. As Spokane"s and Ta
coma's new members count ten points
each, and those signed by Portland and
Seattle count but Ave each, the smaller
cities may yet give the leadera a hard
race. C ,
Portland lacks only one member of
averaging 100 a day since tho contest
started. As two days remain, there Is
little doubt that the local association
will sign 600 members during the week
and, therefore, score the coveted S00O
points. The membership teams, how
aver, do not feel safe, because they do
not know what Seattle may have In re
serve. They are determined to beat
tha Puget Sound city, even If they have
to get out and make a canvass of the
office buildings on Saturday, tha clos
ing day of the contest.
The boys department was largely re
sponsible for Portland's fine showing
yesterday. The Junior department
turned In tha names of 65 new mem
bers. Tha numerous boys' clubs con
nected with the association have con
stituted themselves Into membership
teams and are working among their
friends more industriously, if anything,
than are the seniors. J. C. Clark, head
of the boys' department, says that the
