Th9 most extensive development
undertaking bestun by the Portland
Commercial Club In Its promotion work
since the first organization of the Ore
gon Development League, with Its hun
dred or more associated clubs through
out the state, is a new plan to organ
ize In the commercial body of each of
the cities of Portland" trade territory
movements for local development of the
surrounding country by the Commer
cial Clubs in those cities.
Tom Richardson, who has engineered
successfully probably more such cam
paigns than any other one man In the
I'nited States, has been engaged by the
executive committee of the Commercial
Club to give the larger portion of his
time to the organization of the move
ment in the trade territory of Portland.
His services will be given by the Port
land Club without charge to the clubs
in which the movement is to be carried
forward, and he will begin his work
immediately after the first of October.

that are otlerea mem iur rciuiu -ieveloping
homes on the soil of Ore-
t"-There Is plenty of land to be had in
Oregon at reasonable prices." says Mr.
Richardson, "but we have allowed the
idea to become prevalent that the prices
of our lands are exorbitant. What Is
needed is simply organized effort In
each community of the state to over
come this prejudice by using every pos
sible effort to place people In touch
with the means of getting hold of the
land which is available at low prices.
"In regard to tourists passing through
the state. Oregon has an enormous op
portunity for effective work In 191,
when the travel Is at its height to the
Panama-Pacific Exposition. At the
present time people don't stop off be-

imeeii twi. -
There Is. however, no reason why they
should not be able to ao so. i
matter that each city In the Willam
ette Valley must take up with the rail
roads for Itself, and If they organize
properly with a determination to get
this concession, they will have no trou
ble In doing so. When people begin to
stop off at the cities along the way
and look about the country. Oregon will
get permanent settlers.
Growth of Movement Need.
"What la needed Is for the strong,
dependable men In each community to
Join the movement and the work that
the Portland Commercial Club is plan
ning to help them to do will bring
about a development In the state within
the next few years such as one scarcely
dreams of now."
The campaign for the $150,000 promo
tion fund of the Portland Commercial
Club is nearing completion and within
a few weeks the fund will be completed.
Already the 119.000-mark has been
passed and contributions, are coming
in with encouraging regularity, al
though the active canvass has been
suspended for a time.

HEW SYSTEM IS URGED
M. A. MILX.'ER BEXOtrXCES LEG
Stale Commission Form of Govern
ment Xot Indorsed Absolutely
but Change Is Advocated.
That the Oregon Legislatures have
been wasteful of the money of taxpay
ers, that appropriation bills are passed
without consideration and that bills are
passed and defeated without regard for
the interest of the people, was the
statement made yesterday by Milton A.
Miller, United States Collector of Reve
nue for Portland, at the luncheon of
the East Side Business Men's Club yes
terday at Hotel Clifford. Mr. Miller's
subject was. "State Commission Form
of Government." He was introduced as
the Democrat who had been repeatedly
elected to the Oregon Senate by a dis
trict with a large Republican majority.
Mr. Miller declared at the start of his
talk that he was not prepared from
the investigation he had made to in
dorse a straight out commission form
for the State of Oregon, but said that
from his experience in the Oregon Leg
islature ho was satisfied some change
was necessary for the protection of the
interests of the people. . .
"I do not attack the men who attend
the Legislature," said Mr. Miller, "but
the system under which they work. As
a rule they are capable and worthy
men. There is tremendous waste of
money and resources of the state. I
really believe that 10 or 20. men could
handle the appropriation so that $1,500,-
000 could have been saved out of the
