The country people trade with Portland and the knowledge that Portkind bus iness men take enough interest In their efforts' to personally inspect the re sults of their enterprise will result In more friendly trade relations. It shows they take a sride in the, industrial de velopment of Interior Oregon, and this fact incites renewed energy all along the line, - It causes the countrv . visitor to feel a personal pride in being a factor in the upbuilding of a great commercial - city like Portland. It shows the city merchant, furthermore, the. great trade opportunities that lis dormant in the Interior of the state. He gleans many practical Ideas by which he can Increase his own business profitably. The Fair is an Industrial educator along home missionary lines, and while we expect good to come of showing' outside visitors our resources, we expeet greater good by showing our home people the full possibilities of ex panding the trade of the interior. Many of us scarcely realize what we produce. within the borders of our own state.' , ' 'Mr. Wisdom personally- visited each secretary of the commercial bodies yesterday, and was promised that the matter of attending in a bodv would be brought to the attention of the mem bers at the earliest opportunity. .
