white satin ribbons and tall standards

beautifully tinted Autumn foliage com
bined with huge yellow cnrysanfne

Long lists of speakers have been ar
ranged, and no club or other organlza

in the campaign.
, Public meetings will not be the only
means of arousing interest in the cam

the Postal Clerks and Mail Carriers

it would be of inestimable value to the
merchants and producers of Clarke

forge a valuable and necessary link of
the Pacific highway and bring into
close touch two important sections that
depend upon each other to a large extent.
"I hope and believe that the voters
of Multnomah County will come up
with at least as strong a percentage as

The City Council has voted to levy
a 1-mill tax for the City Library, which
has been established about a year.
The first effect of the new
tariff law on men's clothes
GENERALLY speaking, it will be good
for everybody. The initial benefit
will be that it will enable us to offer, at
lower prices than has been possible here
tofore, the finest, richest imported fabrics,
such as we and some few exclusive tailors
have, in the past, used sparingly.
We made large preparations in advance
of the passage of the tariff bill, and we will
be the first American clothes makers to
offer these new fabrics on an extensive scale.
Weeks ago, our entire buying staff went
abroad; buying offices and, warehouses
were opened in Huddersfield, England, at
31, Lord Street, and in London at 47,
Brewer Street, Golden Square, W. Large
orders were placed for the choicest pro
ductions of foreign looms, which will be
shown in our line forhe Spring of 19 14.
American weaves will not be displaced in our
