Evening of the Best
HOLD ANNUAL MEETING
Officers Arc Elected for the Division
of Traveling: 3Icns Protective
Association, "Which Includes
Oregon and 'Washington. .
Traveling1 men are universally known
hs Jolly, pood fellows and princes of en
tertainers and last night they lived up
to their time-honored and merited repu
tation when the Oregon and Washington
division of tho Traveling Men's Protec
tive Association held Its sixth annual
banquet at the Hotel Portland. Without
a doubt it was one of the most brilliant
and eminently successful social func
tions which have ever been given In the
City of Portland, and all those who at
tended expressed themselves as never
having attended a more thoroughly en
joyable or delightful affair.
Good Fellowship Reigns.
Everything went In perfect harmony
even down to the minutest detail as
though the whole affair had been re
hearsed time and lime again by the par
ticipants and nothing was overlooked
A. A. Cook. Trmldent Travelem' Pro
tective Association for Oregon aBd
that would possibly have added to the
enjoyment of the evening. Of course
goodfellowshlp reigned supreme, as It
always does when traveling men are to
gether and from the very beginning to
the very end laughter, applause and. pro
posals of toasts continued almost with
out ceasing. In fact there was so much
merriment that those who attended after
wards wondered how they had found
time to partake of the elaborate menu
which was served to them.
Including the guests of the evening,
among whom were many of the most
prominent business and professional
men of Portland and Oregon, about 70
sat down to the tables at 8 o'clock last
night. The banquet was served In the
grillroom, which bore hardly the
slightest resemblance to anything but
a Japanese tea garden.
Banquet Room Decorated.
The large room was one mass of
evergreens. Oregon grape, smilax and
flowers of all descriptions, through
which twinkled innumerable electric
lights. From the ceilings wore sus
pended hundreds of dainty Japanese
i lanterns. Many other Japanese decora
tions were in striking evidence and it
seemed as though the whole room had
been lifted bodily from Japan and
transplanted within the four walls of
the Hotel Portland. To make the effect
all the more realistic pretty and
daintily-attired geisha girls distributed
the cigars to the guests. The transfor
mation of the grillroom into a Japan
ese led garden was accomplished by
H. C Bowers, .manager of the Hotel
Portland, under whose direct supervi
sion the decorations were arranged.
Near the main entrance of the room
there was a platform in chairs upon
which were seated the honored guests
of the evening. In front of them ex
tended tho tables -which ran across
tho rooms and then divided at each
end into long wings which extended
parallel to the walls clear to the far
end of the hall. Along the wings -were
seated the other, seats being arranged
on cither side of tho extensions. Thu
tables were massed with lavish dis
play of floral 'decorations and upon
which wecr also massed huge masses
of roses. Growing palms and plant
were on every side of the guests.
Toastmastcr Announces Programme.
After the menu had been served. Toast
master Ransome called those present to
order and announced that a programme of
speakers had been prepared. Tom Rich
ardson, manager of the Portland Commer
cial Club, was the nrst speaker to be In
troduced, and others followed In quick
If the committee which had charge of
the banquet last night wanted speakers
who would praise the traveling menxthey
could not have done better than select
those who spoke. AH those who spoke
at any length eulogized the "men who
sold the goods and made tho wheels of
If the speakers were to be believed, the
traveling men have done everything great
excepting the creation of the universe, and
the only thing that prevented them from
sharing in that Is the fact that it all hap
penhed when "drummers" were an un
Tom Richardson a Drummer.
It developed that Tom Richardson had
once upon a time carried the heavy grips
and got up out of oed at 3 o'clock fn the
morning as a traveling salesman. He re
lated a few of his experiences as a drum
mer, and then told how the traveling men
had made the country what It Is today.
He spread it on so thick that even some
of the salesmen cautioned him to go stew,
but he continued unheeded, and from all
appearances every statement he made
carried with It the utmost sincerity.
Rev. F. Burgette Short spoke on "Re
ligion and the Commercial Traveler."
which made a decided impreeetea upe-n

a lighter vein, and in the course ef Ms
remarks he said that he was perhaps as

Dr. Stephen S. Wise delivered the last
address, and he took as his subject
"Drummers." As his subject would In
dicate the traveling men came" in for
many large bouquets which were thrown
at them from every direction. Dr. Wise
also took occasion to express himself on
the Importance of all persons working
for a higher standard of commercial In
tegrity and honor. He said the travel
ing men could, and he said he believed
they would, aid in the accomplishment
of this goal. The question ef commer
cial integrity was one of the roost vital
things before the American people today
Talks on Chinese Boycott,
He said he learned with enjoyment of
the Institution of the Chinese boycott,
which he said was due to the absence of
commercial honor on the part ef the
Americans. He said it was teaching the
Americans to deal squarely and fairly
with the Chinese and not to treat the
Chinese students and mercahnts who
came to this country as felons or con
victs. He stated emphatically that he
was not in favor of open immigration.
All of the speakers were heartily ap
plauded and many times were interrupted
by outbursts of enthusiasm or laughter
over some of their remarks. m Without' an
exception all of the addresses were excel
lent and were Just suited to the occasion.
As the banquet was closing a toast was
drunk to the health of Mr. Bowers for
the splendid manner in which he had en
tertained the banqueters last night; A
resolution expressing tha appreciation of
the association of the service rendered by
the retiring president, Mr. Random e. and
