Of th Oregon girls to Hawaii.
Mr. We ther red and . her party left
Honolulu September , sailing on tbe
steamship ftierra for San Francisco.
Their departure from their native land
was one of tbe memorable events of ths
rear. Th dock were crowded with
lawallan to aee them off, and when
the girls in a six-horse tallybo arrived
at the wharf they -were greeted with
rounds of applause. Other Hawaiian
girls placed armload of garlands about
their necks. Thar war many pres
ent, and much weeping along with th
joy of the departure.
Arriving in San Francisco they wer
received with ceremony and cordiality
by the commercial bodies, the Califor
nia Promotion - commute . taking th
lead In their entertainment. They have
visited Lo Angeles and other places,
and ar now headed for Oregon. Mra
Tosler, writing to Manager Tom Rich
ardson of the Commercial club about
their trip, said: '
- "They will reach Portland about Sat
urday, -October . and I know yon will
see to It that the ' Commercial club
shows them attention and that they . re
ceive the glad hand.-- They are being
royally received all through California,
by commercial clubs and women's cluba
I want Oregon to do as well. The
Oregon Journal girls who made tha trip
to the Islands will join In helping to ar
range for meeting: tha Hawaiian rlrls.
and will make aome beautiful lela of
roses for th occasloir1 - -v,
Th Hawaiian girls had planned to
reach Balero before the atate fair cloaed,
and expected to apend more time In
Oregon than In any other state on their
tour. Circumstances arising on th trip
made It impossible for them to get here
for th fair, and their time In Oregon
will b correspondingly limited. . ,
WHOLESALE HOUSE IS
CLOSING OUT STOCK
Big Fall Clothing Stock to Go at

Those who know J. L. Bowman will
appreciate his statement In today's
page announcement that he baa enough
wholeaale clothing stock to start 10 large
retail store. It Is this stock of high
grade readv made clothlns- that ha oro-
poses to close out at exactly wholesale
prloea J. L. Bowman Co. Is going
out or tn wnoiesai doming ousiness.
Mr. Bowman's statement regarding this
"Hundreds of oeoDle are asklns- ua to
day why we are giving up the whole
sale trade after working It up until It
was the second largest wholeaale cloth
ing houae on tha Paelflo coast. . Th
reason 1 w found so manv difficulties
in tha manufacturing of our goods In
New Tork City, where we are obliged to
operate our factory, that w have de
cided to give up th wholes 1 trad for
good and an time. -
This la of Itself assurance that ex
ceptlonally On value will be obtain
able at thla sal. No such a fresh
wholesale stock of absolutely seasonable
goods haa been offered at wholeaale
coat to ths retail trade during the paat
is years. ii is wunoui precedent,"
said one old resident 2hl mornlns.
Doubtless there will be aoma kicking
among the old-line clothiers," he con
tinued, "but Mr. Bowman is Justified, as
he Is really going out of tha wholesale
business. It means a great saving for
the people because It Is a stock that
is up to date in every particular.
The sale has ODenea In the new Couch
