corporate career. j
The management if ' the bank will be
the same as heretofco-e; the necessity for
incorporation arises from the increasing;
business of the institution. This can
. be handled better by a' corporation than
by a private bank and in case of the
death or disability of any of those who
control the bank, the business cannot be
affected in any way, whereas if the pri

While it is now almost, if not enfr

Oregon that have made no arrange
ments, to be represented by floats in
the great "Spirit of the Golden West"
parade, the Rose Festival management
Is still holding out an opportunity for
outside points to come In and partici

Portland to be entered in the various
cavalcades by day or night. Letters

which have not yet arranged to take

there will be plenty of opportunity for

club, has set the pace by preparing to
send a body of 100 men dressed in
white uniforms, each carrying a para
sol in the official colors, the entire
division so arranged that the sun
shades will spell the following words:
"Eugene, Lane County, Oregon."
The Instructions now being prepared
are to the effect that any town which
does not feel that It can afford to
spend the $500 or more necessary to
enter a float can find artistic repre

marchers, bearing some special emblem
which will be typical of the community

J. M. GRAHA3I, OF ERIE ROAD,
VISITS SOUTHERN OREGON.
Suspected That Engineer Is Scout
. for Hill System, Which Has
' Hinted at Extensions. .
J. M. Graham, .second vice-president of
the Erie Railroad, spent yesterday In
Portland, leaving last night for Southern
Oregon. While here he was in conference
with local railroad men. His mission in
Portland was something of a mystery, but
It is understood that it was In the inter
ests of the Hill railroad system. He
has taken a leave of absence from the
Erie, supposedly because of the Harriman
domination In the system. Mr. Graham
has been associated with the Hill inter
ests for years, having formerly been gen
eral superintendent of the Northern Pa
cific Since then he has served as chief
engineer of the Baltimore & Ohio, and
later went to the Erie as head of the con
Until Harriman executed his coup this
Spring and acquired a large interest In
the 'Erie, that road was understood to be
under the domination of the Hill interests.
The presence of Mr. Graham in Oregon,
and particularly Southern Oregon, may
mean the announcement of designs upon
that part of the country by the Hill
lines at no distant date.
Mr. Graham is an engineer of very high
ability, and this fact lends color to the
theory that he may be a scout for the
Hill people in this territory, to which
James J. Hill himself has said he will
Mr. Graham was noncommittal as to his
plans here while In Portland yesterday.
Hejunched at the Arlington Club as the
guest of General Manager Talbot, of the
Oregon Electric Railway, and in the af
ternoon took an automobile ride with A.
J. and George McCabe, with whom he
was associated in the Northern Pacific
operating department years ago.
