There were acres of automo
biles and carriages at the station
when the party arrived at eleven
o'clock, but before that they had
been met by a committee of re
presentative citizens, led by the
governor of Oregon and the may
or of Portland, who joined the
train some forty miles out of the
city. The procession from the
depot up town was a remarkable
sight in fact, long before the
last vehicle had left the station
others were well out in the resi
dence district, as it required
twenty minutes to get the entire
party under way. During all
this time the bands played and
the people cheered. There were
some bright, short, crisp talks at
the luncheon, with more extend
ed speeches at the dinner.
This great excursion and the
entertainment at Portland shows
what can be accomplished by or
ganization. 1 wo prosperous
commercial bodies of the state of
Washington were received by the
largest organization of its kind
in this state, the Portland Com
mercial Club. All the adver

thousands of cards in the show
windows of the store reading
"Portland welcomes her guests
from the Inland Empire, " "Spo

right," "The Inland Empire

of the Pacific," etc. It was a
happy and successful day. These

and all the Middle West is good
on all railroads from March 1st

rate from every station in the
United States and Canada. Ev

this, and the fact that the low
fare applies to Ashland, Salem,

to Portland, but people must ask
for tickets to the point desired
when they buy them.

city since the Lewis and Clark
Exposition in 1905. The gather
