BRIEF OREGON NEWS
Portland, Or., Oct. 28 (Special)
An urgent invitation is being sent
out to officials and members of all
southern Oregon commercial bodies
to attend a n,n;at "booster" con
vcnlion at Grants Pass on Thursday
November 6. The Grants Pass
rVimnipsrMn club, assisted hv tlie
lnisfn-ps men of a" Josephine county,
will be in attendance to welcome the
visitors. There will be a morning
session at 9:30, but the general con
vention will meet at r.30 p. m. The
arrangement of a program for this
session is in the hands of a commit
tee of fifteen, of which Judge Win.
N. Colvig, of Medford, is chairman,
The principal object of this con
vention is to induce the people of
every southern Oregon community
to concentrate all their "Hons toward
attracting the tourist army, which is
certain to visit the Panama-Pacific
Exposition in 1915. to the Wil
lamette, Uinqtia and Rogue river
valleys enrDitte. A great exhibit of
all Oregon products is 10 be install
ed at Ashland for the purpose of en
tertaining and educating the travel
ing public, and strong efforts will be
made, by the wide distribution of
Oregon literature, to induce pros
pective visitors to this coast to pur
chase their tickets by way of Oregon
cither coming or returning.
At a recent meeting of the jobbers
and manufacturers of Portland it was
decided to make Buyers' Week an
annual event, the next one to be
held from August 10 to 15, 19 14.
An officfal report was made of the
results of the buyers' week during
September which showed ' that buy
era from 263 stores in 150 towns
visited Portland. Of this number
108 bought more than $500 worth,
of goods, entitling them to a refund
ot their railroad la re. wmie tne
most of the buyers came from Ore
gon communities, Washington, Ida
ho and Montana were liberally
represented and every visitor went
home at peace with himself and his
entertainers and satisfied that his
time and money had been welUpent.
With the development of reclama
tion projects in eastern Oregon, the
O-W R. & N. Co. is planning a
campaign to educate the waterusers
in the actual application of moisture
to the land, according to an an
nouncement made by President J.
D. Farrell. The company expects
tr send ah experienced irrigation
man from farm to farm to give actu
al working instructions on the best
way to utilize the water. I low not
to irrigate is as essential as how to
irrigate and the expert will put. the
farmer wise to all the benefits and
dangers of the work. o
A suggestion that might be pro
fitably adopted throughout Oregoij,
is that contained in an exchange to
the effect that the United States De-
p-utment of Agriculture ig to .en-i
courage and assist in the organiza
tion of "pig clubs" among the,yoting
people in every agricultural com
munity throughout the country. It
is pointed out that pigs "are every
where a profitable crop, thafe even
tne smallest growers can niake a
little money out of hogs and that
every family can at least lowci5 the
cost ol living by raising its" own
pork. The "pig club" plan is a
good one and worthy of general

WE thank you all for your liberal patronage
on our opening day Saturday, and will as
sure you that the policy of this .store will be to
please you and save you money, and remember,
that we exchange or refund your money with the
same smile that we sell. New goods will arrive on
every boat. Again thanking you.

The following figures taken from
the records of the assessor' books,

of what has become ot the monoy

Itis useless to go back of 1997,
for the reasons othat prior to that
date the road work wa9 desultory,
the records Incomplete, and prac
tically no permanent work was done.
During the last six years practic
ally all the permanent 0 lines and
grades have been established and
ttiere has been a systematic pro
gression towards a definite method
in road matters, and it is possible to
get at the expenditure records and
check them to .1 balance.
The following figures tlo not take
into account the ferries and bridges.
While these are necessrry to the road
system, tfic purpose of these sched
ules is to sIioa- what has been- done
with the' road funds; and the matter
of bridges will be dealt with later.
