gon and feel that, without fail every

of Oregon, and of course, more par

I can say with pride that, up to
the present time Salem and Marion
county have been the greatest support
to the State Chamber. during Its first
year, and through the efforts of the
manager of the Salem Commercial
Club, Mr. T. E. McCrosxy, we have
accomplished more in Marion county
in the way of definite organization
and development wrk than any
county in the statfe of Oregon, and it
is up to Marion county to keep up this
reputation, not only the renutatton for
doing things, but actually doing them
and one way to do them is to attend
this meeting. We want to have a
strong enough representation there so
that we will again be recognized, as
we were during the organization meet-!

ai Convention of Major Gen. Leonard
Wood for the presidency is expected
almost immediately, as one of the
results of the selection of Col. William
C. Proctor of Cincinnati as chairman
of the Leonard Wood National Cam
One of the probable early results of
this Increased activity will be, it is
stated on excellent authority, the
lining up with the Wood boomers of
certain erstwhile Proeressives. one of
whom is George W. Perkins, whose
connection with the last two national
campaigns gave him' great distinction
as a campaign asset, although In each
case he was on the losing side.
The friends of Gen. Wood under
stand that he will not resign from the
army, but-will "follow the example of
Gen. Hancock" and remain a soldier
until actually nominated. This means
that he will probably lose the delega
tion from South Dakota bv fail ins- tn !
me tne declaration of principles which
tne state law there appears to require.
However, the Wood managers, an-
parently at the Chicago conference,
reached the decision that this lnss can
be made up later.
It is Understood to be the Intention
of the Wood manegers not to attempt
to get delegates in Illinois, where
