ALBAXT, Or.. Jan. 25. (Special.)
Enthusiastic over the success of their
seventh annual convention held here
this week and loud In their praise of
the splendid entertainment afforded
them in Albany, members of the Oregon
Retail Merchants' Association left yes
terday on a special excursion to Cor
vallis to visit the Oregon Agricultural
The 400 delegates were especially
pleased with the splendid banquet ten

Association. Four hundred and
fifty men sat down at this banquet.
which was served in the Albany Armory
and which was one of the best ban
quets ever served In this city. A large
number of prominent Albany young
women served as the waitresses at the
banquet and received an ovation from
the guests at the banquet.
Gale S. Hill, of Albany, presided as
toastmaster and toasts were responded
to by C. C. Colt, president of the Union
' Meat Company, of Portland: W. J. Kerr,
president of the Oregon Agricultural
College, of Corvallis; F. H. Shull, mana
ger of the Portland Flouring Mills
Company, of Portland; Albert G. Clark,
of Portland, ex-president of the Port
land Ad Club: Rev. Father Arthur Lane,
of Albany; J. L. Stockton, of Salem,
president of the Oregon Retail Mer
chants' Association; Max Buren, of fca-
lem, and H. M. Crooks, president of
Banquet Monte Enjoyed.
Music at the banquet was furnished
by Wilson's Orchestra, of Albany, and
interspersed with the toasts were songs
by the quartet of the University of
Oregon Glee Club and solos by Mrs.
Adna Smith Flo and Ray Cleaver, of
Albany. During the banquet the Salem
delegates to the convention sang
several songs composed especially for
The members of the Albany Retail
Merchants' Association were highly
complimented by the visiting delegates
upon the successful manner in which
the convention was entertained. The
local association was organized only
a few weeks ago and that It accom
plished so much was a subject for fre
quent congratulation at the hands of
the visitors. F. J. Fletcher, president
of the Albany Association, took a lead
ing part in the preparations for the
convention and the general committee
on arrangements which handled the
plans for the entertainment of the
visitors and the big banquet consisted
of G. T. Hockensmlth. chairman;
Charles E. Scott, U E. Hamilton, Wil
liam Kaa-lea and F. H. Pfeiffer.
As a result of the action taken at
the convention the Legislature will be
asked to enact some new laws of con
siderable importance. Steps were
taken by the officers of the association
before they left this city yesterday to
present the Ideas of the convention, as
expressed In various resolutions, to the
Legislature at Its present session in
the hope that the laws desired may be
Auto Tax Question Fixed.
The most Important legislation
recommended by the convention was to
divert the money received from auto
mobile licenses from the general fund
of the state into the road funds of the
counties whose residents paid the
license. The money could thus be ex
pended directly upon the roads trav
ersed by the automobiles paying the
The prevention of the use of .trading
stamps by merchants was another ques
tion on which the convention desires
legislation. This question was dis
cussed generally at the convention and
opinion among the delegates seemed
to be overwhelmingly against the prac
tice of using trading stamps. The
opinion was expressed, however, that
a law to prevent their use would be
unconstitutional so, since they could
not prevent their use by legislation,
the members of the association re
quested a law providing a license for
their use. Such a law, the delegates
believed, will curb their use materially
and may result in abolishing them alto
gether. The convention went on record In
various ways as being in favor of ad
vertising, but the delegates In all their
discussions urged honesty In advertis
ing. A resolution was adopted urging
the enactment of a law to prevent a
merchant from misleading customers by
marking out a fictitious price on any
article and remarking a selling price,
giving the Inference that the price had
been reduced materially when such
was not the case. The resolution
adopted by the association on this mat
ter urges that the present law on fraud
ulent advertising be amended so as "to
make it unlawful for any person, firm
or corporation to offer for sale by any
method any merchandise carrying com
parative valuations for the purpose of
making a sale, unless the price stated
as the original price shall have been
in force for a period of at least 90 days
prior to the offer of sale at the reduc
tion." Honeaty la deeded.
This resolution Is regarded by many
of the delegates as the most important
passed at the convention, and the enact
ment of the proposed law would, it is
said, do more than any other one
thing to establish honesty In advertis
ing, and would also. It Is claimed, revo
lutionize the business methods of some
The association also recommended
that a law be passed requiring that all
collection agencies shall be bonded in
the sum of $5000.
One of the other important resolu
tions adopted by the convention favors
an appropriation by the Legislature to
assist the State Board of Immigration
Commissioners In its work. This reso
lution reads as follows:
"Whereas. It Is apparent that the
greatest need of Oregon at the present
time is more people to till the soil and
help develop the vast acres of rich vir
gin lands. In our state: and
"Whereas. In order to do this most
effectively and for the greatest good
of the state, it is necessary to have the
class of immigrants who will clear the
lands and develop same in a manner
that la' seldom done by our native
farmers and their sons; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That the Oregon Retail
Merchants' Association, In annual con
vention assembled, approve the worlt
being done by the State Board of Im
migration, and further urge that body
to pursue every legitimate step to
bring In more of the class of desirable
foreign Immigrants who are fitted to
perform this work of development.
Also, that we urge the Oregon Legis
lature to appropriate a suitable amount
of money to enable our State Immigra
tion Board to conduct an information
bureau, for the encouragement of the
most desirable immigrants from the
Irish, Scandinavian and German speak
ing people in Europe; be it further
"Resolved, That the Secretary of the
State Retail Merchants' Association be
Instructed to send a copy of these reso
lutions to the members of both houses
of the Oregon Legislature now In ses
sion." How I.a Grande Got Convention.
Back of the selection of La Grande
as the place for holding the next con
vention of the association is a story
of how a score of business men of
that city, determined to secure the
convention for the Union County me
tropolis, made two long trips to gain
It and succeeded on the second at
tempt, after an Albany business man
had taken the honor almost out of
their grasp last year and broke all
precedent in doing it.
The association met last year at
Medford and despite the fact that they
had to cross the state for both its
length and breadth to attend the con-

and H. M. Templeton, all of this
vention, twenty .men from that city
made the trip to secure the 1913 con
vention for their city. Their enthus
iasm won a great deal of praise, but
when it came time to choose the cen-
ventlon city, F. J. Fletcher, who was
one of three Albany men to attend
the convention, mounted the plat."rm
and with a big "hub," Albany's official
emblem, in bis hand, pointed out Al
bany's advantages as a convention city
so eloquently that the delegates voted
to come here.
Fletcher broke all precedent in se
curing the convention for Albany, be
cause of the fact that this city nad no
local association of retail merchants
at that time and never except in this
instance has the association ever
voted to go to a city which lid not
maintain a local association. Albany
now has one of the most active local
associations in the state, however.
Undaunted by their defeat, the La
Grande business men chartered a. Piiil-
n:an car and came to the Albany con
vention this week 20 strong. They re
newed their campaign for the conven
tion and won out. Pendleton was La
Grande's only opponent. R. Alexander.

Proposed Law Finds Favor at An

SALEM, Or., Jan. 25. (Special.)
The State Federation of Labor con-
riurfori ft Annual session yesterday
afternoon, after a four days- discussion
nf th. nrnhiema before organized labor.
The matter which brought out the
liveliest discussion and producea ine
widest divergence of opinion was the
employes' compensation act, now be
fore the Legislature. By a vote of 54
to 23 the convention repudiated the
bill, and by a vote of 43 to 28 passed a
resolution severely conaemning xvep
resantatiVB A. W. Lawrence, of Mult
nomah County, Tor introducing the
measure before having consulted wnn
the labor forces. This is the bill which
was drawn by a composite committee
representing both employers and the
labor people, ana Mr. Lawrence s atiiuu
is especially objected to because of
his membership In the roriiana xirvv
These resolutions precipitated a
brisk fight in the convention, and it
developed that the proposed liability
law had a large proportion of friends
in the meeting. Its consideration con
sumed the whole of today's session.
Doubtful Construction Feared.
The principal arguments used by the
opponents of the bill, aside from its
doubtful constitutionality, are the
claims that some parts, particularly
section 15, are ambiguous, and that
room is left for doubtful constructions
bv the eourts. Another objection fre
quently brought up Is that there is a
possibility that it may leave room for
the revival of the old fellow servant
and assumed risk doctrines. Althougn
there was a -wide divergence of opin
ion manifest in the fight, the delegates
all say that they will stand together
and fight unitedly to nave ine meaa
ure thrown out.
James F. Cassldy, and E. J. Stack,
secretary of the federation, will be in
charge of the fight at the Capitol. They
will also do all possible to secure en
actment of the eight-hour law and
the widows' pension bill.
In lieu of the rejected bill, the fed
eration decided to frame Its own meas
ure, and have it ready for introduction
at the next legislative session or Ini
tiate it at the general election in 1914.
The committee named to. draft the
measure is as follows: P. R. poiiock,
of Portland, representing the plumbers;
James Cassldy, ironworkers; Everett
Logan, carpenters; John Murphy, long
shoremen; F. A. Glfford, electrical line
men: O. R. Hartwlg, painters; E. J.
Stack, cigarmakers; A. Burns, iron
molders; George Vollum, bartenders;
Lon De Tarmond, typographical union;
R, S. Rayner, machinists; C. M. Ander
son, Salem typographical union; J. H.

Free Textbooks Indorsed.

take steps toward the Introduction of
a bill to this effect. Senate bill 77,
Introduced by Malarkey, was strongly
Indorsed. This measure provides for
protecting the lives, health and morals
of women and cniiaren employed in
The convention also indorsed House
bill 151. by Olson, with the understand
ing that certain amendments be of
fered. This bill provides for the bet
ter regulation of school districts hav
ing 10,000 or more children. The amend
ments advocated by the Federation
were to the effect that property quali
fications for voters at school elections
should be abolished, and that such
elections be held not at separate times
but in onjunction with the regular
state ejections. A bill - making' defal

beginning of history, drinks made from barley have been
used in cases of illness. All the ancient nations recognized
its wonderful curative powers.

barley, regardless of cost, is used in connection
with other selected grain in making Duffy's. Pure
Malt Whiskey. Other so-called ' 'malt whiskies' '
which you can buy in the store at a less price
than Duffy's Malt use cheaper material with a
meager amount of malt; but bear this in mind
