Portland Manufacturers, Jobbers
and Merchants Lay Extensive
Flans tor Annual Event. ,
Seventy thousand Invitations have
been sent throughout the 14 west
ern states, British Columbia and
Alaska by Portland manufacturers,
jobbers and wholesalers, inviting re
tail merchants to attend the tenth
annual Pacific northwest merchants
convention, commonly known as
"Buyers' w-eek," to be held here Au
gust 7-12.
Already acceptances are being re
ceived at Buyers' week headquar
ters, and indications are that the at
tendance will be ire excess of that of
last year, when 1600 visiting buyers
registered. Several letters have
been received from merchants in
Petersburg, Wrangle. and Ketchikan,
Alaska; British Columbia and Mon
tana to the effect that the writers
are planning attending the conven
tion. Replies from merchants in
California, Idaho, Utah and Wash
ington also have been received -asking
for more complete details of the
programme for the week.
Public Auditorium Kngagwl,
The executive committee is mak
ing elaborate preparations for a record-breaking
attendance. To ac
commodate the visiting buyers at
the various entertainment functions
the public auditorium has been en
gaged for two events, and two floors
cf the Chamber of Commerce, in
cluding the main dining room and
the green room, have been reserved
for the annual dinner.
Many entertainment features are
being scheduled, including a fash
ion show, receptions, smokers, the
ater parties for women buyers, auto
mobile rids, a night excursion on
the Willamette and other events.
Portland's wholesale and jobbing
houses and manufacturing plants
will hold open house during the
week. Goods wili be on display ana
a corps of employes in each estab
lishment will be on hand to escort
the visiting buyers through the dis
play rooms, and heads of firms will
be on hand to greet their patrons.
Rail Fare Refund Planned.
As an inducement to stimulate
buying, the executive committee has
decided to follow the custom estab
lished in- former years and refund
one round-trip railroad fare to each
firm which purchases goods amount
ing to at least $500. This rebate is
applicable only to fares paid on the
certificate plan of one and one-half
fare. Visiting buyers s'ho come to
Portland by automobile or boat will
receive the same rebate, based upon
the railroad fare from their home
town. .
Arrangements have been made
with the officials of the local auto
mobile camp to extend courtesies to
visiting buyers who come by auto
mobile and who dsire to remain in
the camp during their stay tn Port
land. It is said that a number of
persons have expressed a desire to
avail themselves of these privileges.
Dividends Exceed All Others,
Says Dr. D. C. Sowers.
That the ' money paid out in
taxes Is by far the best investment
made by the average family Is the
contention of D. C. Sowers, director
of the Akron, O., bureau of municipal-research.
He declares that divi
dends from taxes exceed those of
other investments, taking as an il
lustration the fact that while a fam
ily may pay $100 a year in taxes
on a house, it costs a local govern
ment usually more than that to edu
cate one child of the family for one

the city yesterday conferring with
City club governors and committees.
Before coming to Oregon in 1915 he
was Identified with the Carnegie
foundation and traveled extensively.
He was a $taff member of the6 Day
ton bureau of research, and later
became the director of the Akron
bureau. He will return to Ohio this
week after having spent his vaca
tion in western states.
"Having its origin 15 years ago
through a group of New York men
interested in getting more returns
from the tax dollar, the bureau of
municipal research is now an im
portant factor in the government of
many American cities," said Dr.
Sowers. "The bureaus are usually
organized as unofficial bodies to
make a dispassionate study of civic
problems in order to effect a maxi
mum return on the tax dollar. An
important by-product of such a bu
reau is that city hall affairs are
speeded up, simply because an unof
ficial group is known to be on the
watch." J

to be "the greatest thing that has

The press agent declares that
there is going to be lemonade on

University Summer Attendance
, Exceeds That of Last Year. "
gene, July . (.special.) ai me
close of the first half of the sum
mer session yesterday the enroll
ment on the campus had reached a
total of 353, or seven in excess of
the figures for the session of last
year. With the Portland enroll
ment approximately BOO, the total
for the combined summer session
reached 850, or almost exactly the
number in the preliminary estimates
by Earl Kilpatrick, director of the
sessions. .
Of the campus enrollment 163 are
men and 190 women. The graduate
work mostly is concentrated on .the
campus, with many of the courses in
Portland given for undergraduates.
A total of 88 graduate students are
enrolled in classes on the campus,
a larger number than usual in the
summer sessions.
vention, according to a letter just
received by John W. Lethaby, ex
ecutive secretary of the Oregon dio
cese, from the Rt. Rev. Thomas F.
Gaiilor, president of the bishop's
Bishop Gailor stated that a special
meeting of the bishops had been
called a week in advance of the
convention to consider the proposed
changes in the prayer book, and to
prepare resolutions covering the pro
posed changes in proper shape for
submission to the convention.
This announcement means that
Portland will be favored with the
presence of 1-00 of these eminent
clergymen for almost a month, in
stead of three weeks, as was origi
nally anticipated. Never, before has
a religious convention asembled in
Portland, which has brought auch
a large number of national figures
to the city.
There are lav bishops in the Ameri
can church. About 120 are expected
here at some time during the con
vention. It is probable that about
10 bishops will be absent, including
the retired and Infirm members of
the college. One hundred v bishops
have already sent in their reserva
tions to the diocesan office for ho
tel rooms, with the exception of a
few bishops who desire to reside in
private homes, the entire college
will be housed at the Multnomah
hotel. '
The convention will not only bring
the college of bishops to the city,
but also about 4&0D eminent clergy
men and leading churchmen. Among
the latter will be many of the lead
ing business men and financiers of
the nation.
Committee Faces Problem.
The problenvwhich the entertain
ment committee is now facing is to
get comfortable living Quarters for
these clerical delegates sand lay dep
uties. Fifteen hundred have already
sent in their reservations, some of
tnem asking the committee to re-,
serve an entire house within a short
distance of the auditorium where
the main convention sessions will be
Others are more concerned about
having definite arrangements made
for them to see the Columbia river
highway, Crater lake, and other
beauty spots in the state, while
others want to take a try at salmon
or trout fishing.
Instead of spending their vaca
tions in some popular eastern sum-,
mer resort, a large number of east
ern churchmen are planning on
bringing f heir families to the con
vention and enjoying their vacation
in the northwest. Each mail at the
diocesan office brings in new re
quests for literature on Oregon and
its scenic points.
' . Presiding Bishop Is 87.
The presiding bishop of the Epis
copal church, who will be one of the
100 to arrive by August 30, is the
Most Rev. Daniel Sylvester Tuttle,
D.D LL.D., bishop of Missouri. He
Is 87 years old and has been presid
ing bishop of the American church
for six consecutive triennial con
ventions, or since 1904.
. There have been 46 triennial con
ventions of the American church, 18
of which have been held in Phila
delphia arid 13 in New York city.
This is the fourth time the conven
tion has .met west of the Mississippi
river. The other three western con
ventions were: Minneapolis, 1895;
San Francisco, 1901, and St. Louis,
Telephone Receivership Denied.
MARSHFIELD, Or., July 8. (Spe
cial.) John S. Coke, Judge of the
circuit court of Coos county, refused
to appoint a receiver for the Oregon
Export Lumber company on petition
of the Coos & Curry Telephone com
pany. Judge Coke, in making the
decision, said that a suit for recov
ery could not be started ttrough an
action at law by such a small cred
itor. He eaid that the. company al
ready had an attachment against
the Oregon Export company, and no
benefit could accrue to the telephone
company through a receiver.
