T. A. Lively Tells What Packers
Have Done for Fort Worth and
Predicts Similar Results
From Local Plant.
D. O. Lively and wife, of Dallas.
Tex., are in Portland, avoiding the
Summer months of their home state.
It's hard work to get a Texan to say
anything against Texas, but Mr. Live
ly says that he. and his wife ha(Ve to
refer to the calendar to be assured that
this Is July. If the climate Is like this
all the rear, they express a desire to
live In Portland, provided their Texas
Interests would permit. Mr. Lively Is
what may be te: med a livestock mar
ket promoter, having had a long ex
perience In that line of work at Fort
Worth and at Chicago. To an Qre
gnnian reporter Mr. Lively said:
"It seems to me from a superficial
inspection that Portland has a great
future as a livestock market. You
have a fine territory for a supply and
a tremendous consumption right at
hand, to say nothing of what the Orient
might take. There is in my opinion an
opportunity for one more big livestock
market In the I'nlted States, and Port
land seems to me to be the logical lo
cation. I don't know Just how much
has been done to back up the packing
interests that are trying to build up a
livestock market for Portland, but I
do know that nothing you have done
or can do mcpns as much for actual
dollars and cents returns.
How It Was Done in Texas.
'I know what I am talking about, as
I went through it all at Kort Worth,
Tex. That town had a stockyard, used
chiefly as a stop-over feeding point
for sheep and cattle In transit. There j
was an antiquated packing-house, with
a small capucitv. but no available sup
ply of hogs. Hoston capitalists bought
the plant, and in order to make their
Investment good, employed a couple of
young men to promote or build up the
livestock shipping Industry.
"It was a new deal for Texas. There
are Texans now in Portland who were
there at the time, and who know what
sort of work we had to do. There were
only about 17.n.i'0 bushels of corn
raised In the state: now the crop will
approximate 5n.rimi.ono bushels. There
were no shlppeis of hogs, and the cat
tle business was confined almost solely
to the movement of range animals.
"We had to preach cornralslng, we
'had tii go out to little country towns
and picking out some likely farmers
or butch. ts. make livestock shippers
out of them. In order to accomplish
this, we would go to the bank and
guarantee the payment of the embryo
shipper's checks In exchange for live
stock. Often we supplied him with the
as they are the groundwork (no double
meaning) of a livestock market. Cattle
and sheep are easier to get.
Good of Competitive Market.
"A competitive market afforded by a
properly conducted stockyard is of untold
benefit to the farmer and atockraiser.
He knows that he will get the highest
ruling market price for what he has to
offer, that he can sell every business day
In the year, and that there la no question
about the spot cash In exchange for his
"The livestock show feature is a great
aid In the building up of the livestock in
dustry. We found It so at Fort Worth,
j and after we had made it a success there
we were taken to cnicago, wnere wan
chairman of the department of publicity
and promotion, for the first International
livestock exposition. Even that long-established
and staid market found It neces
sary to look to her laurels in order that
the Missouri River markets would not
wrest from her the supremacy she had
"The first International was a revela
tion to the people of Chicago, and even
to those idenfified with the livestock in
dustry. In line with my work I went to
see the managing editors of the Chicago
dailies, asking them to help boost the
exposition. 1 was told that Chicago had
outgrown the sfockyards. that instead of
tshowinir distinguished visitors the art of
I killing hogs, they wanted to show their
i art Institutes ana ineir parn systems, n.
1 tnnlr nn lv a few davs to convince these
gentlemen that the livestock industry In
all of its ramifications actually supported
.in ir rent of Chicago's big population,
and that it meant more to Chicago than
the erain. lumber and dry gooos inter
ests combined, the three next Important
lines of that city's commercial suprem
acy. Pretty big statement, but we
showed them, and as soon as their eyes
were opened they got in line, and they
are still pushing.
Portland Can Have Big Show.
Kverv man interested In livestock
knows what the Chicago International,
.h. i.-.na Cltv Roval. the Fort Worth
Feeders and Breeders, the Denver show
mrier tin. management of Colonel . E.
Skinner, and the various displays, have
meant, not only to the cities, but to the
iivtnric Industry as a wnoie. 1 ne mui
titudes that attend the shows lng more
money ter capita than any other sort of
gathering under tne sun. ajio. mev
for material. proniaDie ocTriulin...v.
L .... ,-1- i-nnntrv that Is civilized Is rep-
cA at the Chicago International,
.-.i nmnnrtinniitelv it seems to me that
Portland can do as well. I understand
that you have a livestock show every
venr that Is well attended, but wifn the
! rA enthusiastic backing up of
n-ho manage it. based on an under
standing of its great Importance, it can
be made bigger and an immense help in
building up a livestock mariw i inland."
"We would then go out through the
country with him, contract for the de
livery of the hogs at the shipping
point on a certain day, order his car,
see him through the market, and give
htm his profit. In most instances the
men we put throuKh the school were
ever after regular shippers.
Orrsiin ll;l Advantage.
"We had poor material to work on
down in Texas. The breed of hogs ran
largely to the raznrback or "bristles on
a butcher-knife' variety. I remember
once going over into the pine woods
and buying up 3'"( head of these rail
splitters to le sold as stockers and con
verted into Knglish bacon hogs. You
can Imagine their size when we moved
the entire lot in three double-decked
t ars. They were like a hunch of cats.
We could not count them In the stock
yards, I'ecause they went through and
over the pens at their will. The man
who bought them shipped them out to
his farm somewhere in the corn belt,
and the first feed of hard corn killed
"IMsease among the hogs gave us a
lot of trouble, a condition I understand
t lie Oregon farmer does not have to
contend with. From the car windows
I have seen nothing but wellbred hogs
in Oregon. The move I speak of was
started 13 years ago. and we thought
we had boomed things when the year
showed receipts of, according to my
recollection, about 3H.0M0 hogs. This
year's receipts have already passed the
half-million mark, with cattle, sheep
and horses In proportion.
Fat Stock Show Helped.
"As one of the means of education, we
started a fat stock show. I personally
solicited the premiums and we had in
hats, overcoats., shoes ami merchandise
about worth of prizes. The show
is now given in a t-"C """ pavilion, with
from J."e.ooo to $7r.ooti in cash premiums
and more than half a million people at
tend. "It is in actual cash returns to Fort
Worth that the growth of the livestock
market is particularly attractive. Just
think of the good, hard spot cash dol
lars that are paid out every working day
in the year, a big proportion of which
is spent with the merchants of that
town. For the over a half a millinn
latiV. about an equal number of hogs.
117. e.-.i head of sheep and nearly 8000
horses and mules, there has been paid out
since January 1, l:"i. a sum approximat
ing $ 1 s.moii.imiii. The population of Fort
Worth has doubled in the past ten years.
There are no. shut downs, and the price
and the class of labor are high. A sal
aried friend of mine h;ij marie a million
il-'ilais in real estate, due to the en
hancement of values brought about by
.he building up of the livestock market'.
Corn Not u Necessity.
"There has tecn one radical change,
though, and that is In the territory from
which Fort Worth's main hog supply
TMmes. Instead of the corn-raising sec
tion, the alfalfa districts ship the big
gest proportion of the fat hogs and sheep.
When any croaker tells you that Oregon
Is not a corn stale, and for that reason
?annot produce lots of fat cattle, hogs
and sheep, tell hhn to go out and get
nformalion that Is up to the times.
Your orchards, your alfalfa fields, you
small grain crops are all you need, and
If you Portlanders are as wise as I think
you are, you will go the limit In backing
jp the move for a livestock market.
"Why. I am told that with hogs in
demand at a hundred pounds on the
hoof, the farmers prefer to kill and
peddle their dressed porkers for less
money a pound. This. If true, is only
due to a lack of education in the matter
of marketing. I speak chiefly of hogs.

Gentlemen After walking over much of Bayocean Peninsula
I wish to say that this location appears to me to be the very place
for a splendid beach resort. I especially admired the wooded hills
lying so near both the ocean and the bay. These beaches seem fully
as good as you have represented them to be. In fact, I think that
you have not over-stated the beauties of Bayocean in any particular.
Very truly yours,

Dear Sirs Knowing so well how many of us feel concerning
investments in property and not having an opportunity of seeing it
and passing our own personal opinion to them I wish to say that
Bayocean as a Summer resort is unsurpassed, with its elevation and
meadows, its natural beauty and trees and shrubbery.
And I am sure that the many thousands that have already bought
there, when they have seen it, will agree with me, that of the unique
beauty of Bayocean the half has not been told.

Gentlemen While at Tillamook a few days ago I had the pleas
ure of a visit to Bayocean. . I cannot express to you in words my.
surprise and delight with this resort. Nowhere on the Atlantic or
Pacific Coast has nature given such a variety of beauty.
This beach is very similar to the Atlantic City beach. But even
that great resort has not the mountains or streams which affordi
sport for the angler and hunter.
This peninsula, with its wooded park, the bay on the one side
where one can have a warm bath, and the ocean on the other side
. for a cool plunge is a rare treat. Personally I would prefer the part
' known as "The Meadows," while others would prefer the broad view
of the ocean.
The hotel site is magnificent, and, with the improvements you
have planned, it willl certainiy be one of, if not the most, beautiful
resorts in the country.
I am going down with a party of friends in a few days, and
we shall try and make our selections so as to form a colony.

Gentlemen-r-On a recent trip to Tillamook with a party of friends
we went over to Bayocean and spent a most delightful day. YouJ
have certainly selected an ideal location for a beach resort, with its
high, sightly ground covered with a fine growth of trees, and, best
of all, the beautiful beaches on both the ocean and bay could make
nothing more desired.
I found a great dear of work being done on the hotel site, grading
streets, etc., and when this is finished Bayocean will be the only
beach resort in the Northwest and one bound to become most popular.
I have read a great deal about Bayocean, but did not realize the
great beauties of it until this trip, and I can say your descriptions
hardly do it justice. I was so impressed that myself and friends are
now planning another trip down there next month.
Wishing you every success in Bayocean,
Very truly ours,

Permanent Exhibit and Information
Bureau to Be Established in
Mayor Simon yesterday mornfni? re
ceived from Chicago a letter signed by
James F. Pershing, requesting him to be
come a member of the advisory commit
tee of an organization called "The North

replied that, being interested in every
thing pertaining to promotion of the re
sources of this" section, he will "do any
thing in his power to assist in such work.
The object of the organization, as
stated in the literature sent out from
Chicago is to unite the agricultural, hor
ticultural, mining and commercial inter
ests of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Mon
tana, Wyoming arid Vtah. Its headquar
ters are in the First National Bank build
ing, Chicago, and the organization com
mittee comprises James F. Pershing. Max
Bass, Forrest Crissley. Charles H. Ravell
and Clyde A. Mann.
The following letter, received by Mayor
Simon from Mr. Pershing, explains the
object of the organization in detail:
We respectfully beg- to advise you that at
a conference held here. It wai decided that
now and in Chicago there must be estab
lished for the Northwest states a permanent
exhibit. In the most conspicuous down-town
store floor location, also a Northwest head
quarters and bureau of information and pub
licity for the Northwest. These to be under
the auspices of this league, which shall rep
resent not only one state, but all.
The present plan is to include Idaho, Mon
tana, Oregon, Washing-ton and Wyoming,
and Utah and Alaska, If desired. This
league, with common Interests, can do what
no one community can attempt. We have
heard only enthusiastic declarations that
National and continuous publicity - with
stereopticon lectures and a central exposi
tion, all without special interest or favor,
would bring about the second and greatest
stage of upbuilding of the Northwest. Of
the inquiries about Western states, 75 per
cent center in Chicago, but the scope of this
league's work will Include the East, be in
fact truly National.

common good, and urge tnat rivalries be
forgotten In an aggressive work for the
