Bankers Much Feted.
The joint convention of the State
Bankers' Association this week has
brought several hundred Western men
to the Exposition. Oregon sent the"
largest representation of any state, and
as the entertaining of these bankers
was done mostly in the California build
ing, just across from Oregon's famous
Parthenon, they 'overflowed daily into
Oregon and got acquainted with us.
W. L. Thompson, president of the
American National Bank of Pendleton,
also one of Oregon's commissioners, is
now in the city, with Mrs. Thompson,
and spends much of his time at the
Oregon building. v

National Banking Company, of Hood

To the Friends and Members
. of the Oregon Humane Society:
I bespeak your vote for ther proposed charter amendment on the
ballot, June U next, -which, if adopted, will give the Council the power,
which it has not at present, to enter into a contract with a humane
society for the operation of the pound. If the amendment is adopted
the pound will not by that fact alone go to a humane society, but the
Council may make a contract for that purpose if it sees fit to do so.
This amendment will put the operation of the pound into the hands of
those, whose chief desire will be to save pain and suffering to the poor
dumb beast wherever possible.
Strange as it may seem, this humane measure has its critics. It
is claimed that the city will lose a revenue of $10,000 per annum, which
will go to the Humane Society. This statement is absolutely false.
The amendment provides no money appropriation of any kind. The
city will continue, as before, to collect and retain fees for dog licenses,
and is merely given the additional power to contract on satisfactory
terms with a humane society for the operation of the pound, just as
it now has power to pay salaries to a poundmaster and his assistants
for that purpose.
Cast your vote for this measure this coming election affords
you no greater opportunity to do good in the cause of humanity.
Yours respectfully, A. COWPERTHWAIT,
President Oregon Humane Society.

association, K. H. Dixon, who until June
1 was publicity manager of the Distrib

campaign to procure fruit tonnage in
the territory of the Spokane Fruit
growers' Company would be under
taken and that local associations of
growers subsidiary to the Distributors
would be formed.
J. H. Bobbins, general manager of
the North Pacific Fruit Distributors,
denies responsibility for the invasion
of the Spokane field by the sub-central
organization, but officers of the Spo
kane Fruitgrowers' Company openly
charge that the move has been fostered
by the Distributors with the hope of
tnjuring the local organization, which
withdrew its affiliation with the Dis
tributors early this year.
