not include tickets sold to Oreg-on

any other roads whose tickets
come around by way of Pujret

work. The Fortland Commer
cial Club circulated 400, 000 leaf

tisinff ever done by any state in
the Union has shown better re
sults. The rates will be on again
during March and April, 1908.
The Oregon Gxxl Roads Asso

Fortland Commercial Club Thurs
day and Friday was very decid
edly the lest attended and most

sidered by visitors as equal to
any similar meeting- yet new

A canvass of the business
houses, wholesale and retail, as
well as the factories, proves that
business has gotten back to nor
mal conditions. Many report an
increase over last year. There
has not been a failure or a sus
pension of a single business house
or factory in Fortland. The peo
ple of the state can depend upon
the newspapers of that city giv
ing them the facts, and before
they get these facts they can de

The words of Theodore B. Wil
cox, president of the Fortland
Flouring Mills, in an address be
fore 150 business men at the
Commercial Club Tuesday night,
when he announced: "The flur
ry is over. Will be in the mar
ket buying wheat and paying
gold for it tomorrow," met with
a more enthusiastic reception
than any remark that has been
made in this city in many years.
There is going to be no let-up
in advertising Oregon. The ex
Ierts of the state gathered at
Fortland Tuesday, and there is a
determination to increase rather
than diminish the gixnl work.
The groat apple displays made
in the show windows here, in
which the excellence of those of
Ibxxl River and of the Willamette
valley is shown, have drawn
thousands of visitors and the en
tire population is more convinced
than ever that Oregon grows the
finest apples on earth. All of
our citizens are becoming experts
as to the different varieties.
A party of twenty-five Fort
land apple enthusiasts were
guests of the Commercial Club of
Mosier last Saturday. The en
tertainment included a long drive
through the valley and a dinner,

the best spelling was awarded to
a young student who had receiv

country schooL But even the
country schools are giving less
attention to the matter of correct
spelling than formerly, as multi

time formerly devoted to thi
fundamental branch and the
country boys and girls, like those
of the city, are leaving school
with a smattering of much rath

It would be a hard matter for
a poor speller to convince the
world that he is an educated per

the best evidences of culture,
and there really is little excuse
for slovenly orthography. In
these days, when everybody

New Furniture Store.
R. V. Hoyt, who assisted in
the mechanical department of
this office for several months last
fall, has opened a new furniture
store at Forest Grove and pro
poses to show the people of the
college town how to do business.
Mr. Hoyt is an all-around hust
ler, good in any branch of busi
ness he undertakes and we are
sure he will "make good" in his
new undertaking. The Forest
Grove News of last week says:
R. V. Hoyt, the furniture man,
whose store rooms are in the new
Patterson building, is certainly
showing his knowledge of the
proper kind of furniture in the
projier place in his window dis
play of a dining room furnished
with mission furniture. Win
dow displays will be a big feature
with Mr. Hoyt as he has it ar
ranged so that he can make any
kind of a room out of the win
dow by changing the screens and
furnishings. He will put on a
modern parlor, bedroom, den and
other rooms, and the people will
watch his displays with interest.
They will add much to the ap-
jxarance of the business section.
Mr. Hoyt's motto is to please the
people. Before coming here he
conducted a furniture store in
Wilson Whit more Dead.
Wilson Whitmore, who died in
this city last week, and whose
funeral was held on Sunday, was
Irnrn in Coshockton county, Ohio,
in 1802. He moved to Laurel in
1S71 and had made this county
his home ever since, excepting
a few years at Goldendale. and
later in Hillsboro. He had been
married twice, in 1851 to Ellen
Cossel. of Iowa, and in 18"S to
Relieeca Fleming of Bladensburg,
Iowa. The widow, and one son
by the first wife. Jacob Whit

The seven tons- $3.500. 000-of
British gold that in Chicago has
helped to relieve the currency
famine, was in 117 plain, stout
wooden boxes. Kach box con
taincd about $30,000 worth of
gold coin and bars, but might
have been mistaken for a box of
babbitt metaL About 47 boxes
were brought over by the Kron
prinzessin Cecilie and the rest by
the Dusitaria, at top speed. The
actual deliveries of these inter
esting shipments were attended
to with no especial care, but as
they were lupged in the bank of
ficials eyed the procession of box
es with keen interest although at
that moment there were over
sixteen tors of gold, about
$8,000,000, in the subtreasury.
To see the masses of currency in
the vaults of the big banks, bales
of it, sacks of it and boxfulls of
it, one had to wonder that any
uneasiness had been felt The
addition of $6,500,000 new cur
rency which Chicago banks will
issue will soon be stacked up in
those vaults, making a most con
vincing exhibit. At the last
statement the cash resources of
the Chicago banks was $128,552,-
155, a sum which was not dream
ed of in the days of Croesus.
Chicago has become the center of
currency supply for a great ter
ritory, however, the shipments
of out-of-town banks in Novem
navino- exceeded the
receiptor-:. about $10,000,000.
During the fceven months to Sep
tember the shipments exceeded
the receipts by S19.676.5S0. The
uneasiness, Mlowing the Wall
street smashes, is fast subsiding
and local banters draw several
long breaths in succession and
sleep weel o'r.ghts.

Alabama Joins the Prohibition Col

Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 19.
Unprecedented scenes were en
acted in the senate chamber of
the historical capitol of Alabama
today when the statutory prohi

of of 32 to 2. Women and child

even invaded the sanctity of the
floor itself, pushing the senators
from their seats and giving vent
to their enthusiasm by .shouts
and cheers that echoed and re
echoed through the building.
Senators who opjxwod the bill
were hissed down when they
arose to speak against the mea

men came to lobby against the
bill they found that delegates
who favored that measure had
filled the senate galleries until
not a seat was left It was the
plan to crowd them out and it
succeeded. Little children stoml
The statutory prohibition bill,
which was passed today, was in
the nature of a compromise be
