organization will have teen completed,
in the opinion of both C. C, Colt and
O. M. Clark, presidents respectively of
the two organizations. Committee meet
ings are being held every day and each
subject affecting the consolidation is
being threshed out thoroughly.
The constitution committee met yes
terday and considered the suggested
constitution and by-laws of the new or
ganization. The committee has decided
that the governing powers shall be
along practical lines, so that the great
est efficiency in the administration of
the organization can-be reached. Mem
bers of the committee are C. W. Hod
son, A. J. Kingsley, E. D. Timms, A. H.
Averill and J. K. Gill.
Membership Qualifications Topic.
The question of determining who are
qualified to become affiliated with the
new Chamber as non-resident members
and the work of checking up applicants
for membership procured in the recent
campaign were taken up at a meeting
of the consolidation committee. A com
mittee was appointed to go over the
This precaution is taken to ascertain
whether there were any applications
that were not made in good faith, as
well as to get more detailed informa
tion regarding all members of the or
ganization. The consolidation commit
tee comprises C. C. Colt. O. M. Clark,
E. L. Thompson. Franklin T. Griffith,
George Lawrence, Jr., Nathan Strauss,
A. L. Mills and J. C. Ainsworth.
Indications are that the civic bureau
will be the largest in point of mem
bership, applications giving that as
preference being about three to one.
Civic Bureau Popular.
The bureaus, according to the first
choices indicated in the reports received
thus far from the members, rank in
the following order numerically: civic
bureau, publicity and conventions bu
reau, trade and commerce bureau, man
ufacturing and industrial bureau, Ore
gon development bureau, traffic and
transportation bureau, retail merchants'
bureau, legislation and taxation bureau
and grain bureau.
"I think," says Mr. Chase,' "that the
membership will be divided up fairly
between the various bureaus in order
of their importance in the community."
The total membership now is 4628,
representing an assured income of
$231,400 annually for three years to
carry on the work of the Chamber.
Indications are that after- the organ
ization is running smoothly enough
more memberships will come in to raise
the total to 5000 and assure a fund of
$250,000 a year. Mr. Chase declares that
he believes the membership eventually
will be nearer 6000 than 5000.
Commercial Inquiries Received.
Letters were received yesterday by
H. V. Chase, who is directing the re
organization, from three Eastern man
ufacturing concerns seeking data rela
tive to supplies of raw material in the
Portland district. These concerns are
contemplating the establishment of
branch factories on the Pacific Coast,
and efforts will be made to get them to
locate in Portland. One of the com
panies expects to employ about 400 men
at its new branch factory.
The new organization has received
assurances from the hotelmen of Port
land of hearty co-operation in the work
of exploiting the resources of Oregon
among visitors and tourists from the
Eastern states. The hotels will be sup
plied with printed invitations asking
:or extra good cooking
always use Cottolene
When you use Cottolene you get the best results, because there
is no other cooking fat that equals it.
For biscuits, pie-crust, cakes and doughnuts and for frying,
Cottolene is supreme, because it is the purest cooking fat and
possesses important food values.
It is an exact combination of specially refined cottonseed oil, of a grade so high it
is not listed on the market, with pure beef-stearine from selected leaf beef suet
It is this precise combination which gives Cottolene its unexcelled cooking qualities.
There are imitations, but there is no substitute for Cottolene. For over a quarter
of a century it has rightfully held a position peculiarly and distinctively its own.
For economy, as well as for good cooking, use Cottolene, You will require a
third less of it than of any other shortening or cooking fat
We guarantee Cottolene for its purity, for its wholesome qualities, for its food
value, and for its superiority as shortening.
Anyone who can cook or bake at all can cook and bake
better with Cottolene.
Cottolene contains no salt or water it is 100 clean, pure
Pails of various sizes, to serve your convenience. Arrange
with your grocer for a regular supply.

real cook book "HOME HELPS."

Cottolene makes good cooking better
visitors to call at the Chamber of Com
merce, inspect the permanent exhibits
and procure information regarding any
community, as well as particular re
sources that they may be interested in
especially. The hotel proprietors prom
ise that every visitor will receive a
special invitation to call at the new
Chamber of Commerce.
LICENSE EVASION CHARGED
System TJsed by Traveling Salesmen
Is Complained Of.
Efforts are to be made to find some
method of preventing traveling sales
men representing outside shoe, cloth
ing and millinery houses from com
ing to Portland, exhibiting their goods,
taking orders and then delivering the
goods later. Merchants have com
plained to City Commissioner Bigelow
and to the city license bureau.
It is said that since the city placed
a heavy license on the outsiders who
came here and sold goods from display-rooms,
these dealers have resorted
to the practice of exhibiting their
good 3 and taking orders. Deliveries
have been made later. It is said that
in this way they evade the license payment.
