"Ads" at Expense of $30,000,
.Maps of Northwest and
.Myriads of Folders.
An immense publicity campaign, from
which Oregon and the Northwest Is to
derive immeasurable benefit, has been
decided upon by the Harriman system and
will be put Into execution without delays
Hereafter the Pacific Northwest In gen
eral and Oregon in particular are to be
featured In every piece of literature Is
sued by the Harriman system, whether it
be a time card, a folder or a souvenir act
Details of this Important campaign of
publicity were given out yesterday by
William McMurray. general passenger
agent In the Northwest for the Harriman
One of the most Important and expen
sive publications will be a reproduction
of the art magazine, "Road of a Thou
sand Wonders," which created no end of
favorable comment throughout the coun
try when it appeared last year. At a cost
of $75,000 a second edition is being pre
pared, so Mr. McMurray" was advised yes
terday. He was also Informed that the
portion relating to Oregon will be pre
pared under the supervision of his depart
Oregon Scenery Pictured.
The second edition calls for 75,000 of
these art magazines, which is one of the
most attractive ever put out by any line.
A corps of men is now in the field secur
ing new photographs and data, the orig
inal plates having been destroyed by the
San Francisco conflagration. The booklet
deals exclusively with California and Ore
gon along the company's 1300 miles of line
between Portland and Los Angeles. Fully
half Is devoted to scenes In Oregon and
Portland. The other half is devoted to
I.os Angeles and California. San Fran
cisco is only briefly mentioned.
The cost of publishing the second edi
tion is only a fraction of the total ex
pense involved. The cost of distribution
and advertising will run far into the thou
sands. Distribution Is to be made in
every important country of the world,
and with the array of art photograps, at
tractively tinted and printed on the best
paper, this magazine or art booklet is
bound to be highly beneficial to Oregon
and the Northwest, and thereby. In turn,
to the Harriman system.
The booklet, however, is only a small
part of the total scheme of publicity. The
other mediums, wherein Oregon and the
Northwest are being speeially featured,
Other Mediums of Publicity.
Newspaper and magazine advertising,
for which a special appropriation of $50,000
has been made. These advertisements
will be placed in 120 leading periodicals
at important points throughout America.
Illustrated timecards, of which 155,000
copies monthly will be distributed at every
point in the country tapped directly or
indirectly by the Union Pacific system.
Columbia River folders, devoted to Col
umbia River scenery, as observed from
the O. R. & N. line. This is a new pub
lication, of which 50.000 copies have al
ready been printed and are now being cir
culated where they will do the most good
in big Eastern cities. They are made up
entirely of pictures and reading matter
descriptive of Columbia River points. The
"See America First" crusade is also fea
tured in this folder, as in most of the
other literature put out this year by the
Next come the O. R. & N. folders, of
which 200.000 have been ordered. A good
part of these attractive and neatly print
ed folders are devoted to Portland, "The
Ten Thousand Maps of Northwest.
Of maps of the Northwest, an edition
of 10,000 has been ordered for distribution.
These maps are printed by a leading Chi
cago firm and are the very latest maps
of this country, having been brought up
to date by Mr. McMurray while he was
in Chicago recently.
In addition to this array of folders and
pamphlets, special editions have been got
ten out on Oregon fruits and on the re
sources of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
That great benefit will accrue to Oregon
and the Northwest from this ocean of
printed matter when -it floods the whole
country, is obvious.

CAREER OF ROBERT SUITOR
Energetic and Successful Business
' ' Man Had Eventful Life.
VANCOUVER, Wash.. Aug. 4.-Speoial.)
Robert Suitor, one of the most energetic
business men that Oregon has ever pos
sessed, died at Vancouver, July 25. He
was bom September 5, 1844, in County
Megantic, Province of Quebec, being of
Scotch-Canadian descent, and possessing
the indomitable energy, noble character
and intelligence characteristic of the race.
Early in life he was connected with the
Canadian Army, being a Sergeant in the
Fifty-fifth Battalion. He left the army
to enter the lumber business, and was for
years foreman and superintendent of a
sawmill, flouring mill and woolen mill
He came to the United States in 1875,
building and operating a sawmill tn New
Hampshire, and later entering business
In Omaha. Neb. He came to Oregon in
1887, and his first work here was building
the pulpit work in the Grace Methodist
Church of this city.-
For two years he followed contracting
and building in Portland, and then moved
to Dallas, Polk County, and built a saw
mill near Falls City, which he operated
during the hard times in the "90s, making
a great financial success, when most oth
er mills were either operated at a loss
or forced to suspend.
In 1S96 his entire plant was destroyed
by fire; and although he carried no in
surance, with the courage which was
characteristic of him he selected a better
site in Dallas, and built a larger and
better mill. This he sold in 1900 and
bought a mill at Westport, Or., which he
later sold to advantage, and, organizing
a stock company, he built the fine milt
at Linnton, Or., and conducted that as
president and manager, until the com
pany disposed of it to the Clark & Wil
son Lumber Company, which took charge
of the plant in January. 1905.
Mr. Suitor had Just arranged to erect
a large flouring mill at Vancouver, Wash.,
having the machinery all ordered and
construction work ready to commence,
when, in the presence of his wife and
youngest son, he suddenly passed away,
heart failure being the cause.
Mr. Suitor was a man of strong convic
tions, of ceaseless energy and persistency.
Whatever he commenced he carried to
completion. He was as true to his friends
as he was to himself; nor did he forget
the stranger and the needy. His generos
ity was almost boundless. He was a
staunch Republican in politics. He was
an Oddfellow and member of- the Dallas
Lodge, being taken back to their ceme
tery, for interment.
Mr. Suitor was a prominent member
of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He
was an earnest friend of her ministers
and took great pleasure In entertaining
them at his home. On the day of his
death, when feeling somewhat Indisposed,
he almost constantly hummed to himselt,
as was his habit when his mind was not
too full of business, the old songs of
salvation, and even to within a few min
utes of his death, the family heard hira
humming his favorite hymn.
Mr. Suitor was twice married. His first
wife was Miss Catherine King, whom he
married in 1S63 in Canada, and she died
in 1SS0. leaving five sons and two daugh
ters. In 1SS2 he married Miss Susie itc
Adam, of Grand Forks, N. D., and one
son was the result of this marriage.
Besides a large circle of friends who
deeply mourn his demise, he left his
widow, Mrs. Susie Suitor, one daughter,
Mary Suitor, of Barre, Vt., and Nflve
sons, Thomas, of North Dakota; R. A.
and A. O.. of Oregon: Alexander, of Cali
fornia, and E. D., of Vancouver, Wash.

Thanks to the clever management of 9.
H. Friedlander, The Oaks is enjoying
great prosperity so far this season. The
Crowds are increasing daily, and since the
opening until the present time the at
tendance has been larger than last season.
Not only does the beautiful resort draw
from the city proper, but it also attracts
hosts of pleasure-seekers from surround
ing country, and the result is that there
Is something doing at The Oaks all the
Those who visited The Oaks last season
were most agreeably surprised and pleased
with its magnificent appearance. But
this year, with the many improvements,
the patrons of the park are delighted at
Nearly all of the attractions are new
and no thought seems to have been made
when it came to spending money for the
Improvements as well as the attractive
features in the way of amusements. The
class of concessions are of the highest
order, and everything is run in a clean
and thoroughly respectable manner. Such
attractions as the dancing pavilion find
many devotees of Terpsichore every night,
rain or shine. Prises are given every
Wednesday and Saturday nights, and they
are costly and beautiful. The spacious
skating rink that has proven such a won
derfully attractive feature for The Oaks
is crowded day and night with skaters
Attractions Are Ponular.
The Old Mill that refreshes all who ride
its mazes has proved one of the greatest
successes yet Installed in the park. The
Figure Eight and Carousel continue to
delight thousands daily, and it looks like
as if this attraction would never wane.
Near the bathing pavilion, which has
proved one of the great delights of The
Oaks, is the giant whirl flying machine
that is unsurpassed in the world for en
joyment. It is one of the sensations of
the park, pronounced absolutely safe by
the most eminent engineers, and gives its
patrons a 40-mile ride.
Besides these attractions there are, of
course, the many old "regulars" that al
ways make good, such as the Maze,
Bumps, Temple of Mirth, Hale's Tour
Cars, and the Chutes, for they, never fail
to please. One of the newest and most
attractive exhibitions Is the great Japan
ese exhibit, that it Is said will go to the
Jamestown Exposition next year as one of
the great drawing attractions. Nothing
Its equal has ever been seen In this coun
try. . . ' ,
Free Open-Air -Acts.
Am6ng the free open-air attractions for
The Oaks thi3 week Is Marian Liljens,
who is known as the Human Comet, the
only woman fire high diver in the world,
who has been the sensation of the cen
tury. Mile. Liljens will make this high
dive from the tower near the Chutes as
a "blaaing hit" into a tank 75 feet below

In the disposition of the case of B.

Cedarville, against whom a complaint
was filed 'in the East Side Justice

selling milk that was 88 per cent

between Justice Olson and Commis

that none was necessary, as the de

phoned the Commissioner about the
"Oh, that was his first offense and I
made arrangements for him to pay a
fine of $25. The second offense would
be $50, but this time he was let off
Justice Olson was surprised at what
he thought was a little irregularity,
when somebody outside his court im
posed a fine on a defendant against
whom a complaint had been filed in
his court, without the defendant even
having made an appearance and plead
ing to the charge, so he informed
Commissioner Bailey he would not per
mit any such agreement. "I am the
one to decide whether a fine should be
imposed on Tannler or not and not the
Food Commissioner." he said.
"I do not know whether Tannler Is
guilty or not." said Justice Olson, "un
less I hear the evidence In the case.
I don't know what Mr. Bailey's prac
tice may have been In such cases, but
I cannot allow him to Impose a fine
In my court without the defendant
having had a hearing. That Is my duty,
if the defendant is found guilty, and
not Mr. Bailey's."
Arrangements were made yesterday
through J. J. Johnson, attorney for
Tannler, for a hearing in open court.
