'Ida as a city and. every resident of It^as an individual Is proud to bo hoat this week to the hosts of tbe United Commercial Travellers who are here for their annual convention. The town Is decked and decorated In outward expression of the welconie ^It extends to Its visitors, the weather^ .,18 everything that ..June weather should be when [.a . convention la In j progress, and the spirit of greetlni; and golodfel- lowship Is in the air. Delegates are here from all the principal cities of the State and the dearest wish of everybody In Iota Is that] eveiTT one of them may enjoy his visit here and that the work of the convention may be harmonious and stitisfactory. The commereldl traveller Is the product of American enterprise and JK>-Ket-Itlvenes8. American business-imen could not, content themselves to sit idly In their fac- torle« or shops.,and wait for orders to-come to them. With characteristic einergy and initiative they long iago decided that the thing to do was to send somebody out and bring the orders in. At first the agent thus commissioned was called the "drummer" because he was out to "drum up" trade. I^ter he became a "traveling salesman. Still later ai^d probably finally he has taken upon hintself the title "commercial .traveller." But by whatever name he has been known he has been of the .same type, eager,. aggressive. Intelligent, ambitiotis, persistent, indefatigable, radiating optimism and success. Before attempting to sell his "line" to anybody else he ^has thoroughly sold himself on If. He is cpnflden# that the "house" he represents -is the best in the country and that the goods he sells' cannot' be matched in* pride and 4ivality. He Is certain that f'bnsf- nes8. is sure to l)e better ln_ the spring" and that "the fall trade is going to break all records.!' H^ becomes the friend and advfeor of his regular customers, a welcome vi.sitor at thi>lr homes, a trusted guide in their purchases, and a loyal ally ln< time of trouble. The question has. often been raised whether or not th^ maintenance of an army of commercial travellers whOfSe' expenses and, salaries must bf added to tlie man- iifactiirei:"^ or J )bher's cost of doing business Is not really an unnecessary tax upoii the people, increasing the price of everything they have to buy. The consensus of opinion ion the part of those who have Studied this question is an emphatic negative. When all things are considered, it seems to be, .capable of demonstration tba^ as agents of distribution^ asi pTO- moters of competition, as guides to Y'ise selections of goods, and in many other ways the commercial travellers make a contribution to commercial stability and public convenience which Is worth vastly more than the public pays for it. PLEBISCITE TO BE CALLED OFF SlTUAnON IS ACUTE TACXA-AHICA PLEBISCITE DASGER. AXTI-PEBUViAJI tlOLE>'CE IS PREYALENT. General Lsxslter Chartres : ChHe with Blockfair a Falr* Pleblsrito. . But however it may be the commercial traveller is here to stay. Me has become-,a part of the business inacninery' of the country which it would ,not now think of eliminating any more than it would consider doing away with the railroads or the telegraph wires; The great organization therefore, which is officially convening in -lola today may be regarded as one of the permanent Institutions of American life, and lola 'is proud to entertain It. trusttng that Its visit here will be remembered as long and pleasantly by the guests froni other cities as It will be by those of us whose homes are in lola. (By the Aciociated Prena) Arlca, Chile, June 11.—(\n early breakup of the Tacna-Arica plebiscite activities here Is foreseen in consequence, of the resolution Introduced by General ^ Lassiter,! charging Chile with blocking a fair; plebiscite b^ failure to carry out; her obligations under President Coolldge's-arbitral award. If the resolution is carried atr the next meeting of the pleblsdary commLssion, It Is pointed out, there will he little, further for the commission to da except wind up its proceedings. • Then, too. If the direct negotiations for settlement of the ^oh,- lem, now proceeding In; W^ashing- ton. lead to concrete results before the next meeting of th6 commission, that body wU| cease to function. General Uassiter's resolution, introduced as a substitute for a Chilean motion demanding that the date for the plebiscite be fixed, is understood to declare that a plebiscite -Is impossible while guaran tees are lacking for-the safety of Peruvian voters. It Is based on: investigations con ducted tljrouhgout the dispute since last August by American observers. The obsierveiTfi repoi-ted that the conditions complained of by Gen eral Pershing before his de^parture for the United States are not improving but Instead are growing worse, attacks upon Peruylaas. In creasing and Jorcible deportations continuing., Some'of the American observers place responsibility for these occurrences directly upon'the Chilean officials ii| the' territory. • ' During tbq last three weeks tber^ has been an extraordinary recru descence of anti-Peruvian violence^ ranging from the stpning of Peru vian houses to mur(|er. Yesterday a Peruvian, selling the local Peru vian newspaper Voz del Sur was stabbed in the back In fall daylight at Tacna.
