LA GRANDE, Or., Juno 23. (Spe

most Important Bteps ever taken Jn
merchandising In the United States
was taken today when George B. Hyatt,
of Enterprise, before the Retail Mer

explaining: how merchants of the state
may co-operate m buying: sucn siapieo
as sugar, Irult jars, spooi-conon, en;.,
and riistrihutinsr them from some cen
tral point, much after the plan of
farmers unions, and thus combatting
mall order houses. The matter was
considered, and a committee appointed
to take steps toward its realization.
Portland secured the 1915 convention

W. H. Wheeler, of McMinnvllle,
spoke on "Special Sales and How to
Handle Them." A. G. Clark, of Port
land, spoke on "Go-Operative Delivery
Systems as a Means of Cheapening
the Cost of Living," the system out
lined being very much like the sys
tem now being used in La Grande.
"Store Efficiency" was discussed by F.
B. Haisten. of La Grande.
Nathan Strauss, who started in as an
office boy and now the head of the
firm of Flelschner. Mayer & Co., of Port
land, delivered an important address.
Mr. Strauss spoke from the manu
facturers' and jobbers' viewpoint and
dwelt on the importance of the mer
chants of the state buying from the
manufacturers of the state, so far as
possible, and, after discussing business
from the Jobbers' standpoint, ex
tended an Invitation to the associa
tion members to visit Portland "buyers
week," which, this year, will be Au
gust 10 to 15.
"Business Waste" was capably
handled by F. L Shull, of the -Portland
Flouring Mills. The question of
how to avoid constant giving was in
formally discussed, and Walter Wins
low, to whom the subject was given,
was not present. Portland, Salem and
McMinnvllle are the chief contenders
for the 1915 convention,1 with the
odds favoring Salem.
A resolution unanimously was
adopted branding as false and defama
tory "certain advertising matter issued
by certain baking powder manufac
turers, denouncing the use of egg al
bumen in baking powder."
The resolution sets forth that demon
strators have gone from house to house
"repeating these false statements as to
the quality and value of competing
brands of baking powder containing
egg albumen." This, it is set forth, has
been "needlessly alarming, annoying
and harassing" to the. consumer, and
has depreciated the value of merchan
dise held and owned , by association
The resolution closes with a demand
that the objectionable advertising be
withdrawn and that demonstrators "re
frain from attacking unjustly other
legal and legitimate brands of mer
chandise" owned and distributed by
members of the association.
Copies of the resolution will be sent
the Food Commissioners of Oregon and
Idaho, to Representative French, of
Idaho, to the members of the Oregon
delegation In Congress and, in the
words of the resolution, to the "baking
powder manufacturers responsible for
and interested in this trade war."
