Growth of Cities and Towns Visual
ized Roseburg Hospitality Is
Typical of Spirit of All.
ROSEBUEG, Or.. Oct. 18. (Special.)
Portland business men representing
the Chamber of Commerce tonight ex
pressed their gratification that in the
six-day trip through southern Oregon
there has been manifested at every
point a spirit of friendly interest and
willingness to co-operate in the move
ment for a greater Oregon.
The growth that has been made by
cities and towns and general advance
ment of their trade territory has been
a surprise when visualized by visits
to the places where more than $25,
000,000 of goods are sold over the
counters annually. Statements of
traveling salesmen laid down on the
desks of executives does not convey
the understanding that is gained by
a personal visit, nor does it have the
effect in creating good will resulting
from acquaintance with the individual
whose name is signed to orders that
come through the mails from the road
forces of Jobbers and manufacturers.
The exhibits of Oregon manufac
tured goods in all of the towns was
one of the features that aroused local
interest in the coming of the delega
tion to the five cities Included in the
itinerary, and novelty, artistic merit
and diversification of ideas carried
out disclosed that there are expert
window dressers in the smaller cities
of Oregon.
Towns All Favor Highway.
Ashland. Grants Pass, Klamath
Falls, Medford and Roseburg are all
a unit in furtherance of the plans
for the great highway system that is
under construction to connect the
tourist attractions of the whole state.
Each has its own local problems re
lated to progress of the whole com
monwealth, in which the moral assist
ance of Portland is sought.
Substantial aid in the way of financ
ing some of these projects is a mat
ter for individual action after study
of each particular project. Nathan
Strauss, chairman of the excursion
committee, today called a meeting of
the delegation which was held in the
observation car as the train left Rose
burg on the last leg of the homeward
journey, to discuss the information
obtained and formulate conclusions
that will be embodied in a report of
the chairman and supplemented by
recommendations to the directors of
the chamber by the four board mem
bers accompanying the party on the
The reports and recommendations
will not be made public until sub
mitted to the directors of the cham
ber for action. However, it can be
said that the impression gained has
been such that the heads of big busi
ness and representatives of the lead
ing banks are intensely interested in
helping the people of southern Oregon
to achieve some of the things out
lined at the various places visited
during the week.
Growth of Business Seen.
The investigation of trade condi
tions, the industrial situation and
commercial relationships bave been
made by the travelers with care and
keen discernment of the assured
growth in volume of business and de
velopment of lateet resources now
just gaining headway.
It has been a seriously considered
array of interrogations that have
been presented, and the business men
have replied that they desire to culti
vate the trade territory of all south
ern Oregon, in which they propose to
give service, maintain high standards
of efficiency in regard to the civic
questions and transportation matters,
such as the Strahorn railroad at
Klamath Falls, the cut-off. The open
ing of the Indian reservation, exten
sion of the railroad now built out 15
miles from Grants Pass to Illinois
valley, backing the movements for
The official utterance on these
matters will come from the official
beard of the chamber, but the delega
tion at conference tonight revealed
that, to a man, they, are all boosters
for southern Oregon, united in the
purpose to impart to every member
of the chamber and to every business
man of Portland the comprehensive
knowledge gained of the region.
Cordial Reception Delights.
One of the pleasant surprises of the
trip was the cordial feeling manifest
ed by business men everywhere. Oc
casional citizens of some of the towns
visited lodged complaints, but on the
whole there was only rejoicing that
the metropolis had sent a delegation
truly representative of its modern
spirit of co-operation and good-will,
reflected in warmth of welcome that
left no doubt of mutual pride of
One speaker at a banquet expressed
the apparent feeling of the people of
Southern Oregon, when he said that
they would not become a part of an
other state, even if they could, that
they were so happy and proud to be
citizens of Oregon and working to
gether with Porotland it angered
them that a pound of their products
went to the ultimate consumer with
any other than an Oregon label. Al
most every man in the delegation had
some suggestion to make to the com
mittee in charge as to recommenda
tions that should be made to the di
rectors of the chamber. All of these
were directed to the same general ob
ject of aiding in practical ways the
ambitions for development, through
loyal moral support of worthy enter
Oregon manufacturers received
wide publicity and aroused enthus
iastic support in the cities of southern
Oregon through the display of pro
ducts in windows of stores. The as
sociated industries of Oregon awarded
prizes at each town for the best show
ing of manufactured products of the
Roseburg Gracions Host.
Roseburg welcomed the visitors
with genuine hospitality, providing
autos for trips into the surrounding
country and wherever the individuals
wished to go, resulting in several at
tempting to lure the festive trout
from the Umpqua. After luncheon
the entire party was taken for a
tour of the valleys in the heart of
which nestles the seat of Douglas
county. The drive included visits to
apple and prune orchards where the
pack of fruit is in progress, straw
berry fields, with ripening fruit, from
which were supplied the berries
served at the dinner. Some dairy
farms and several of the scenic at
tractions of the locality.
W. C. Harding, president of the
Roseburg chamber of commerce
presided at the dinner which was
served by the women of the mental
culture club. Covers were laid in the
assembly room of the First Fresby-

Word has come from Lieuten

parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. R
Cook of 430 East Fortieth street
North, that he has received the
French croix de guerre with
palm for valorous action with
the 2d division in the Cham
pagne offensive. The captain of
his company was killed immediately-after
going over the top,
and, although Lieutenant Cook
was slightly wounded by the
same shell, he took command of
the company and led it until
his unit - was recalled, eight
days later. This was his first
experience under fire.
In a subsequent action in the
Meuse-Argonne drive he re
ceived a wound in one arm,
which resulted in his being re
turned to the United States late
in December. He was a pas

With a total volume of business ag
gregating 14.700,000 annually it was
stated that approximately 90 per cent
of the trade goes to Portland jobbers,
wholesalers of manufactures, and the
remainder goes to distant points for
goods not readily obtainable except
from their sources of supply.

Rev. D. L. Schultz Says Churches
Can Eliminate Unrest.
"Much of the present industrial un
rest will be dissipated when the
church and organized labor come to
an understanding." declared Rev. D.
L. Schultz, of Pittsburg. Pa., in an
address before an audience of men at
the local Y. M. C. A. last night. Dr.
Schultz, who is known throughout the
country as the labor evangelist, is
a member of 11 unions, and is a rep
resentative of the Federal Council of
Churches in the American Federation
of Labor.
In his talk last nisit Dr. Schultz
told of conditions in the mining dis
tricts in Pennsylvania with which he
is familiar, and which are among
those conditions which he is working
to prevent. The breach between the
church and these organizations is
caused by false impressions of the
church among working people and
also by the fact that the church mem
bership is not wholly supporting the
Christian doctrines which the church
represents, he said.
Miss Edna Ferguson, soloist of the
Calvary Presbyterian church, sang
delightfully two songs, "Little Mother
of Mine" and "My Task." with Miss
Ruth Agnew at the piano.

Delay in Having

Condition May Mean
Serious Sickness
l How little the average man or woman
thinks of the danger of harboring diseased
teeth or stumps.
$ Indifference, procrastination and fear of
pain are a few causes for this neglect
which sometimes leads to very serious re
sults. CJ Why not see a dentist before your phy
sician orders you.
jf The bugaboo of pain has been handed
down from former years when dentists
were less skilled than at the present time
and before the many agencies for the pre
vention of pain had been discovered.
J If a plate is necessary I will remove all
of your stumps or diseased teeth without
causing you any noticeable pain.
CJ And" the plate I will make for you will
fit so snug and comfortable, performing all
of the functions of natural teeth so satis
factorily, that you will wonder why you
did not come sooner.
