JEWELERS ARE HERE
Business Sessions Held Close
With Banquet and Pro
The second day's session of the
Oregon Retail Jewelers opened with
an address at the Commercial 'club by
Walter A. Denton, secretary Oregon
Retail Grocers' and Merchants' asso
ciation. In his talk, Mr. benton took the
stand that the retailer must not over
look the human element with his em
ployee as well as the public and that
the modern retailer must do his share
in building up his community and com
munity life. It was the duty of a mer
chant to so conduct his business as to
build up his community, he said, and
to keetp business at home rather than
to conduct it in such a manner' that
hig home folks' would support mail or
der houses built cn inferior merchan
dise and through misrepresentations.
He also urged it hat retailers should
be free from such an indirect tax on
the public as trading stamps and free
gifts wherein the public always final
ly pays in full. He claimed that the
"merchant is really the backbone of a
community and that ho was the first to
bo solicited and the first to give for
the advance of local affairs.
This afternoon at 2 o'clock, Milton
A. Miller, United Sta'es revenue col
lector, delSvcretl an address on the spe
cial tax to which jewelers are subject
and giving general information as to
how this tax affects the business man.

Government Price On
Wool Definitely fixed
The farmer who has a small clip of
wool is now assured of the govern
ment's price at from 47 to 63 cents a
pound, according to grade and tliero
ore no restrictions as to disposing of
same, except that instead of having
the wool graded by a local buyer, it
must be graded by a licensed dealer,
such as Clifford W. Brown or the Thoa.
Kay Woolen Mills.
. The government regulations permit
the local buyer to charge Hie wool
owner one half a cent a pound merely
for shipping ajid sending to a licensed
dealer, if the wool is sent direct to
these dealers, he of course saves tho
half cent a pound.
Woolen mills arc limited to buyini
to within a radius of . 50 mlies from the
mill whilo a licensed dealer may buy
any where in the Willamette valley.
Hence the man who has a small clip
of wool to sell may have it handled by
his local banker or any local firm at an
expense of half a cent a pound. Tho
priw leceived will depend on the trad
ing and this year buyers say there is
but little to be sold at the low price of .
47 cents and that the average will run
up pretty close to 60 cents a pound.
