Acommittee of the Springfield' Development Lenguo
BoeriboVer an hour Monday afternoon conferring with a com
mittee of the Eugene Commercial club on the subject of
Joining with Eugene in maintaining a representative of Lane
County at the Panama exposition for the next ten months
'to answer questions, about this county.. All the other of the
eight counties in the Willamette Valley joint exhibit havo ar
ranged through public funds, to keep such representatives
at the fair all the time. Lane County did not make such
arrangements, and it is' now left to private Initiative to pro
vide for this representation.
The Eugene Commercial club did not feel like assuming
the whole cost of keeping a man at San Francisco estimated
to be $1350 for the ten months of the fair, and accordingly
addressed letters to all commercial organizations of the coun
ty asking co-operation. The Springfield Development League
was the first one to respond, asking the Eugene club for a
conference on the subject. In times past it had appeared
that Eugene had presented her advertising to the disadvant
age of Springfield, and it was accordingly thought wise to
go carefully into details and learn what the returns would
be before promising any assistance.
Springfield is interested in the well-being of the county.
Springfield wants to get all the advertising out of the Expo
sition that it is possible to get How to get this advertising
was the problem and so the conference was asked. Spring
field wanted to know what Eugene would do in return for
Springfield's contribution.
At the conference the proof of the official Willamette
valley map was shown. On this map the name of one town
is in just the same type as that of another, and there is no
. thing to indicate that there is any difference in size or com
mercial importance. It was furthermore stated that no indi
vidual promotion work was to be allowed in the Willamette
Valley exhibit. The whole valley goes in together, and each
individual article shown will be labeled: "Grown in the Will
.amette Valley, Oregon, by " with name and post office.
While the committee from Springfield had no authority
to bind the League, or any other commercial organization,
its members expressed the belief that Eugene offered a fair
proposition, and the name of the man suggested for the place
gave promise of a fair hearing for the whole county, and for
every community in the county.
The matter of joining with Eugene in the raising of this
fund will be taken up in the League very soon and decided,
so that it will be possible to get the Lane County man, if
there is to be one, on the ground.
Whether' Springfield goes into this plan or not and it
would :seem that she should the commercial organizations
should provide some means of advertising the town among '
those who are coming west. There are dozens o'f- cities by the
name of Springfield, known to thousands and thousands of
people. The.;ery name "Springfield" will be familiar to many
and will accordingly attract their attention. To capitalize
this interest should be the purpose of a carefully planned cam
paign. Many of the residents of the other Springfields will
Btop off to see their own town's namesake here in the west. '
The only problem is to get our name before them, together
with something about ourselves that will attract attention.
Lane County, as a large part of the Willamette Valley,
will have deep interest in seeing that all visitors learn all
they pan about our resources. It is no more than fair that
Springfield should join in spreading this information by the
means of a well informed representative to be present at the
Oregon building, to answer- questions of those attracted by
the Willamette Valley exhibit.
In addition to this, Springfield ought to outline an ad
vertising campaign that will interest travelers to the west,
and those expecting to come to the west, so that they will
stop off for a personal inspection. Caring for them after
they get here ought also to be Included in the plans for'ad
vanpement of the town for the coming year.
'Springfield has;, profited In the past by the general ad
vertising for Lane county gotten put by other organizations.
Now she should get under the burden and, while advancing
her own interests, help in promoting the welfare of the whole
. county.
Salem, Ore'., Feb. 10. (Special
Correspondence to The Lane
County News.) This is the 31st
day of the legislative session.
The business In the House has
been slightly advanced since the
adjournment Friday, but new
matters presented, together
with bills coming from the Sen
ate, have made it necessary to
begin the night sessions, so that
a special session has been called
tonight for the purpose of con
slderine; Senate bills. The Sen-
of the delay of the House in con
sidering bills- that havo come
fromUhe State Senate.
Yesterday the House spent
from nine o'clock in the morn
ing uhtll six o'clock in the even
ing on six measures. Five hours
of this tjme was'spent on the bill
ratifying the lease made to
Jason Moore for the Summer
and Albert Lakes. This very
important mater probably would
have been disposed of in half an
hour's time had not those who
wpre in charge of matters In
sisted that the bill be rushed
through. A motion made early
in the day to make the bill a
special order for the next day
at ten o'clock would have saved
sary ror a rair investigation.
While the House passed a rule
that ))o appropriation bills
should jbe intWMhked; a4r,tho

to the-3Gth day of-tho

the moro important appropria
tion measures have been pre
sented to tho IIoubc and havo
boon disposed of, and the Ways
and Means Committee havo
been earliest in their' efforts to
advance the work. Too mAny
licensures )iayc been referred to
thcnunml "the committee -on
clalms.tihd other House cqmmlt
tecs could well havo assisted
them in their work, but tho rule
to refer everything bearing on
appropriations to this commit
tee, has overloaded', them while
other equally able committees
have had nothing to do.
The committee on Ways and
Means has been most indust

overwhelming vote. The ex
