Elated by the success of their six

discovered for closer trade relations,
and determined to .make Portland the
equal of other large cities of the North

6:20 last night from their tour of 1050
miles throughout Southwestern. Cen
tral and Southern Washington.
In all that portion of Washington
that is or should be tributary to Port
land as a Jobbing center the excursion

in building up closer relations with
this city. They declared themselves
willing to meet Portland jobbers and
wholesalers half way in overcoming
any difficulties that may exist In the
matter of freight rates or other con

men who made the trip had their eyes
opened to what other large cities of
the Northwest are doing In the way of
street Improvements.. They were forced
to admit that both Tacoma and Seattle
are ahead of Portland in the number

Toward the close of the Journey plans
were formulated for the Commercial

The doorbell at the Jaeger residence
rang about a quarter past nine last night,
and Mrs. Jaeger, who was up stairs
writing a letter, went to the door to
discover the little one lying in an open
suitcase packed with infant's clothes
cooing happily over her bottle.
No one was in view, but a note,
evidently written by a peraon of intelli
gent, was found with the clothing. The
"My rear Mr. and Mrs. Jaeger Won't

an Institution? I've been told that you
could give her a better home than I
ever can ard I don't live here. The baby
is healthy, but the change to the bottle
was hard on her. Give her a name and
be good to my baby girl."
The note was unsigned and Included a
formula for the food that has been given
the child. Everything aa clesn and
Ir. Jaegnr says the baby Is a pretty,
bright, blue-eyed" child. Mr. and Mrs.
Jaeger are childless and cay they In
