No convention ever h'dd in the

greater valuf than the convention I

days next week. The shrewdest!
business men of this part of the Pa- I
cih'c Northwest arc lanrdog the ;
program ami propose a movement
which will advertise th? four states
in ik way which will rival the great
est advertising fichemes which the
Canadian government and the Ca
nadian Paciiir; railway have been
using to draw people of tho United
States into the Albetta country.
Already many delegates are prom
ised for the convention, assurincr
the important meeting desired.
Tho committees which are plan
ning the meeting fijht shy of every
thing which is (or individual locali
ties as against tho entire northwest.
There is ho much of vast importance
upon which al! communities in the
four states can unite, that the con
vention will find that it will have
all it can do to plan this work.
Among the questions which have
been suggested for discussion are
the placing of lecturers in the east,
advertising tho Pacific northwest;
opening of rivers and harbors; the i
establishment of a strong north
west press bureau; securing by
united action national conventions
for all the cities of the northwest,
which are large enough to enter
tain them; tho placing of an immi
gration agent in Europe; securing
of an appropriation by the legisla
ture of each of the four states for
the advertising of that state; the
co-operation of tho United States
government for forest protection,
including the patrol of f 01 eats by
United States cavalry troops, and
the urging of leading cities to hold
annual expositions and fairs.
It is important that every com
meicial body send delegates to this
convention and notify It. C. Rohra
