With Buyers' week only three weeks
distant, the Chamber Of Commerce
committee is being daily advised that
merchants will be here in large num
bers from Washington. Idaho and Ore
gon. It is thought that the attendance
for last year, which reached 500 at
high tide, will be far surpassed and
that purchases will approximate !,--0.000.
The figure for 1914 was esti
mated at 800.000. based on reports to
the Chamber of Commerce on which
refunds of cost of railroad tickets were
The plan for refunding railroad
fares is identical with that heretofore
used, requiring the purchaser to take
a receipt for the money and the vali
dating of the- ticket at the bureau to
be opened in the headquarters at the
Chamber. Portland merchants who are
participating in the refund agreement
will certify each day the amount of
purchases by each visitor, and when
the total reaches 1500 an order for the
refund will be made.
On arrival at Portland the. visiting
merchant will be asked to register im
mediately at the headquarters for
Buyers' week, where he will be sup
plied with credentials and a coupon
ticket of admission to all the enter
tainments of the week. A second pres
entation will be a list of the whole
salers and Jobbing men who are par
ticipating in the plan.
Influence Extend Far.
From every factory throughout the
Northwest comes the. . encouragement
that Buyers' week is stimulating the
use of their products. The retailer
from the interior finds the goods as
sembled in the jobbing houses of Port
land and he Is urged to give them a
trial among his customers. The cus
tomer is finding these products fully
equal to those turned out by Eastern
manufacturers, and consequently the
influence of Buyers' week is extending
backward to every farm that produces
the raw materials.
Committees appointed for the enter
tainment of visitors plan to keep them

their own towns, counties and the dis

reature was one of the most popular
events of the week. The visitors
brought Ad Club-ers into touch with
many communities on which their in
formation was meager.
Theater Parties Wednesday.
Wednesday night visitors will be
taken to the Empress Theater for the
first show and to Pantages for the
second show. Both theaters will re
serve seats for the use of these visitors.
The luncheon to be given at the Log

Thursday night the coupon tickets

of the leading concessions.
Friday night a big banquet will be
served at the Chamber of Commerce,
and for that occasion some of the best

1:15, after stopping half an hour for

P. M. and ended again at the Kails

There are three ways by which the
new trail, constructed under the super

be reached. The first is at the end of
the lienson bridge: the second by the
trail that leads from Cordon Falls; and
the third from the Multnomah basin.
The length of the trail ranges from
6h to 7 miles, depending on which
approach is taken.
Observation Toner Completed.
The tower that rises 85 feet above the
top of the mountain has been completed
and furnishes an opportunity for an
even finer view of the surrounding
country. This tower forms one of the
points of a triangle, and it will be pos
