meeting In the interests of Wilson's
candidacy in every county in the
United States on that day. At each of
these meetings a special message from
Governor Wilson will be read.
"In many of the Eastern states,"
said State Chairman Haney, yesterday,
"the observance of the day will be

course, that is out of the question in
a state the size of Oregon. But we

Not an Intimation has been received
as to what the message from Wtlson
will be. But it is believed to be more
than likely it will consist of an earnest
appeal from the Democratic nominee

into court and give an explanation. If
he refuses to pay he will be punished
for contempt of court.
The estate consisted entirely of a
claim for damages against the railway

Organization Which Began With
Luncheon Gathering- of Three or

Quarters at Multnomah Hotel.
"Boys, let's have lunch together to

Railroad office to a group of his friends

building, one day last Winter.
"We'll be with you, "was the chorus
of replies. .
The next day they met at the impe
rial Hotel six or eight of them. In

The result of that meeting is tne

Name Implies AIL
The Transportation Club Is strlotly
what Its name Implies. It Is composed
exclusively of railroad and steamship
employes. There Is no woman's auxil
iary nor an associate membership. Not
even the traffic managers of the big In
dustrial concerns, most of whom are
old-time railroad agents, are admitted.
The club started by weekly lunch
eons at the Imperial Hotel, meeting
every Thursday at noon, wnen some

affairs would talk of railroad business

while a little comedy or musical enter
tainment would be Injected Into the
weekly programmes, and once a num
ber of women mostly equal suffrage
advocates were entertained.
This continued for quite a while, un
til the membership grew so that a
meeting once a week would not afford
sufficient outlet for the enthusiasm that
developed. Then the permanent club
room idea was suggested. The Multno
mah Hotel offered just about what the
majority of members had in mind.
Comfortable Rooms Enjoyed. .
These rooms are located on tha mei
zanlne floor of the hotel building, over
looking Third street, and are nicely ar
ranged for social diversion and Indoor
recreation at times when the members
are not on duty. It is a favorite gath
ering place at the noon hour when tne
railroad employes are out to lunch. A
long hallway connects wUh the balcony
overlooking the hotel lobby. Off of this
hallway are a pool and billiard room,
a parlor and lounging room, reading
room, muslo room, card room, secre
tary's office and wash rooms. A cloak
room Is provided at the entrance. The
rooms are elegantly furnished and fin
ished throughout in a brown tint. Ev
ery piece of furniture and decoration
harmonizes with this color scheme. An
automatlo player-piano recently "was
added to the equipment. . Several of the
railroads have given the club handsome
pictures of Bcenlo points along their
lines of travel. An ample supply of
literature, including dally papers, mag
azines and railroad publications. Is
maintained in the reading room.
One of the rules strictly enforced
from the start Is that prohibiting
gambling in any form and drinking

men holding comparatively minor
positions. Men of every department
traffic, operation, legal accounting and
engineering are listed on the rolls.
Membership Field Large.
With the possible exception of San
Francisco Portland has more railroad
employes than any city on the Coast,
and the actual membership by no means
represents the number of men en
gaged In the transportation business
here. Provision, also is made for a
non-resident membership to accommo

features. It is planned to have a so
cial function to which the wives of
members will be Invited at least once
a month during the Winter. Prizes
are given for the best scores In "500."
Mrs. T. E. Wallace and R. E. Piper
won the prizes last week.
An experimental rule now being tried
by the club requires the president to

Dr. Hartman Makes Public the Facts
As to What Doctors Think of Peruna
II b , jJ!
Mill -1 lr:
' mi mil --1-"""'
S. B. HARTMAN, M. D.
Of coure doctors disagree about
Peruna. the same as they do on all
other subjects. It is generally thought
that the doctors are unanimously op
posed to Peruna. It Is well known that
Peruna has cured a great many cases
after doctors have given them up.
This would naturally oxclte animosity
or Jealousy on the part of the doctors.
Then It Is a fact that the average doc
tor is opposed to ready-made medicines
of all kinds. They know very well If
a bottle of medicine is sold at the drug
store that moans that some doctor loses
prescription and perhaps a patient.
So they are generally opposed to patent
medicines, or ready-made medicines as
they can them.
But ever slnoo peruna nas Deen soia
I have known of many doctors who are
In favor of Peruna. Some of them be
lieve in It secretly, others openly. All
this time I have been receiving letters
from regular practicing physicians of
fering to send me testimonials as to
the virtues of Peruna, provided I would
pay them for doing so.
It is nothing unusual tnai a aocior
should expect pay for such a service.
Tho manufacturers of so-called ethical
nrenarations advertised in the medical
journals, used by the doctors only, are
in me nauii ul uwv.d .v
timonials. If a doctor has found some
one of these proprietary remedies use
ful and .can write a good, smart article
about it, the manufacturer is perfectly
willing to pay the doctor for this serv
ice. Bo it is perfectly natural for doo
tors to write to me telling me that they
know of cases where Peruna has made
marvelous cures, and are willing to
furnish me the facts if I will pay them.
Rut I have always refused to pay for
Mich a service. I have invariably made
a courteous reply to the doctor, telling
him It is opposed to my policy ana
principles to pay for testimonials, either
directly or indirectly. There would be
Baker to death on Morrison street on
the night of July 28, Is to turn state's
evidence and testify against his com
panions. As a preliminary Chrlsten
een was taken before Circuit Judge
Kavanaugh yesterday and changed his
plea of not guilty to guilty.
At the request of Deputy District
Attorney Page the boy was allowed
to go on his own recognisance and
passing of sentence was deferred until
after the trial of the other youths.
Mr. Page declares that no promises of
immunity were held out to young Chrls
tensen. Leese and Burns will be placed
on trial this week before a Jury In
Judge Kavanaugh's court. Chrlsten
sen's testimony will be the best
evidence the state will have against
no trouble at all In my obtaining hun
dreds of testimonials from doctors If I
would pay the doctors for doing so.
I recently received such a letter from
Kentucky, from a doctor who says he
has been practicing medicine for a
quaTter of a century, and la at present
medical referee for this county, presl
dent of the county medical board, local
surgeon of the C. & O. railroad, mem
ber of the state medical society and
American Medical Association," and all
that. He has used Peruna and offers
to give me a very remarkable test!
monial If I would pay him for doing
so. He does not set any price but
expects me to offer him something,
which of course I refused to do. He
said, "I have been afflicted with a sub
acute inflammatory condition of the
post nasal space, and of recent years
the larynx has been Involved In the
catarrhal process. Tour Peruna en
tirely relieved me of both conditions,
after a comparatively Bhort time of
using it. Today I am the happiest
man alive. Medical men will hardly
believe me when I tell them that your
medicine cured me, but It Is a fact.
Nevertheless I had tried for fifteen
years every known means, took treat
ment at several sanitariums." He Is
willing to take oath to these state
ments If I will make It worth his while
to do so.
It was very gratifying to receive
such a testimonial from a brother phy
slclan and quite a temptation to pay
him a small sum and allow his letter
to be published. But I have an unde
vlatlng policy of refusing to pay any
one for a testimonial. Nothing would
sooner lead to Insincerity and embar
rassment than to offer pay for testl
monlals. I should be flooded with tes
timonials of all sorts and In spite of
every precaution some of them would
In referring to the doctor's letter I
do not consider that I am violating
the ordinary courtesies and confidences
of private correspondence. I have not
made use of his name or the town
where he resides. But I am perfectly
willing to communicate the name and
address by private correspondence If
any one wishes me to do so, or submit
the letter for examination to any In
quirer who may call at my office. 'And
I may say the same in advance of the
next letter that I am about to refer to.
Another doctor from North Carolina
writes me. He says: "I have a case
under observation now permanently
cured by Peruna that has baffled the
medical profession ever since the dis
ease was known." He says, "I have
successfully cured the case with Peruna
and feel that If the public knew the
facts about the case that it would be a
great boon to the public, as well as the
greatest advertisement ever given any
medicine on the market." He says, "I
can furnish a sworn statement of the
particular case and give you the great
est ad. for Peruna ever known for any
remedy. The disease cured in this case
Is regarded by the profession as incur
able. I prescribed the Peruna myself
and know all the particulars. The
patient had consulted leading medical
authorities, had taken the most modern
treatment, and everything failed, not
even obtaining relief. He had also
applied for Insurance and upon exam

Club to Announce Returns.
Arrangements have been made by
the Portland Commercial Club to se
cure by direct wire returns on the Na
tional election, Tuesday night, Novem

served at the club on that night. The
election returns will be announced in
the dining-room and also In the green
room and the billiard-room.

Peruna treatment for a few months he
again applied for Insurance, was ex

doctor goes on to say, "I await your
early reply, and If you place the valua
tion to you on this that I do I am sure
the inducement you offer will meet my
approval and I will furnish you with

Now these two letters are only sam
ples of letters that I have been receiv
ing for the last twenty-five years, from
doctors from all parts of the United
States. I have made no use of these
letters for the reason that pay was
always demanded and' I do not think
It Is strictly moral to offer any mone
tary Inducement for published testi
monials. I have never done so and I
But incidentally this kind of letters
proves conclusively that Peruna Is a
great remedy for catarrhal diseases.
No doctor would resort to Peruna until
after he had exhausted every other
remedy. When Peruna can assert its
value In the hands of people that are
naturally prejudiced against it, It has
proven Itself a wonderful remedy.
Again I wish to say, I do not blame
these doctors for expecting me to pay
them. That Is the way the regular
ethical manufacturer does and I have
no quarrel with It. I am citing these
cases not to disparage the doctors who
have written these letters, but rather
to show that doctors In good standing,
in spite of their prejudice against
Peruna, scores of doctors have been
convinced of Its value in the treatment
of catarrhal diseases.
I am a doctor myself. I have prob
ably treated more patients than any
one doctor in the state In which I live.
I doubt if there are many doctors In
the United States who have treated
more cases. I have long been con
vinced that Peruna is the best remedy
obtainable for catarrhal diseases. I
have seen thousands, yes tens of thou
sands, of people recover from catarrhal
aliments by the use of Peruna. I can
not believe otherwise than tnat peruna
is today the best remedy that has ever
been devised for catarrhal diseases.
I am not sure but that I will have
my files searched ror similar letters
to the ones I have alluded to, for there
are a great many of them filed away.
I may publish a book containing a large
number of testimonials given me by
doctors, which I have withheld from
the public because I was not willing
to pay any one for writing a testi
monial, however valuable It might seem
to be. Of course I will not use this
booklet for public advertisement, since
I have not the doctors' consent to do so,
but It will be sent through the mails to
those only who request it, chiefly to
the medical profession.
