' The Portland Chamber of Com merce has inaugurated a fine new plan for giving Oregon and Portland a much-needed round of advertising. The new idea is to be christened "Letter Writing Week,'.' and is to. be participated in by every, residentrof Oregon. The week set aside will probably be the third week in January. On this week every resident qf Port land and Oregon will be expected to write several letters to friends and relatives in the East, extoll ing the grajideur of our Oregoa scenery, the immense crops, and the value of our great cities and small towns as resident, centers. There will bo appointed by the Portland Chamber of Commerce professional let,ter,writgrs, whose duties are to. set forth the' facts' in their most alluring light3. These same Iettqr writers will a so dish out an abundance pf factii. to thpse whp so desire Another feature of the, cam paigns will.be a giant letter box, which will stand on Sixth street, and into whi?h every one is ex pected to deposit thejr letter,?,. The box will be, so equipped that an endless series of tramcars will carry the mail to the postotjice. All iis vvill be in direct charge of the officials and employes of the postal department. joy; Ths place vmal sriterd' again some time durlBg the night at December 17, and tvtt hiitdrcd dollars worth of stock takefl, tlie kulpritg leavine no trail, There was, however, outside in the al ley the unmistakable tracka of a wide-tired wagon, which had been backed up to the rear door, and the stuff loaded in. The rear room, whch was used as a store room, was almost depleated of its abundant stock,' and nothing of any consequence" was left. fji till, which was kept jn the front rponi, escaped completely as did everything, with the ex ception of one or two open pot tles about half full. This the rob bers transferred to their own per sons, lae empty bottles were scattered qp and down'the alley. Were the truth known, it has been stated by several prominent citizens, these depredations would not have to be traced far to lo cate the evildoers, ahd'if the case was put into the' right' hands it itwould doubtless result in some startling discover! jb.' There are, in and around Beaverton, several places, which have been deserted so' long they are musf y ' and in fested only by lowly rats. Why not keep, en, eye .otvsueh places as these? Or else condemn them and have them removed as a public nuisance. . ..
