CHAMBER TO HOIiD
NA ASS NIETINC BUSINESS MEN AND FARMERS URGED TO ATTEND SESSION OF ORGANIZATION. Hamilton, Dec. 22.-(Special.)-A mass meeting of the members of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce will be held tomorrow evening for the purpose of launching the "Service" campaign of the organization. It Is the plan of the chamber to bring the farmer and the business man into closer co-operation, and as a means to this end Secretary Dixon has mailed a circular letter to all the farmers and business men of the dis trict in which he puts before them the new campaign of the chamber of commerce. The meeting tomorrow evening Is the first gun In the cam paign, and at that time the plans of the organization will be made plain to every person present: Mr. Dixon's letter follows: "My Dear Sir-Does the fact that service is the slogan of the chamber of commerce of Hamilton for 1914 mean anything to you? We believe it does, if we have a chance to ex plain, and for that reason are writ ine you. ing you. "Have you ever stopped to con aider why there is a chamber of com merce or some sort of a commercial club in every progressive city of the west'! And why also the east is awakening to all appreciation of the talue that such an lnstitution nay be to a community? "It is because it is possible for a chamber of commerce to trovide the kind of actual service to a coiniun fty that can not be performed with at the same prestige and :;ccess by y other institution, "You have a chaoi l-r of comtmOrce ere, and we assume youl want it to fulfill a real mission--to do, and keep on doing, something of benefit to this particular locality- your omn, by the way. f "Hamilton possesses the finest home for its chamber of commerce of any city in Montana-but, in pro portion to its population, furnishes the least membership. Do you know that it has been trying to exist and perform its functions on less than GIl members, only half of whom are up to date in their support of it? Think of that! "We shall not ask you to join its in our work until we have set forth our plans; but we want evetutoally the farmers, as well as the business incn, to get behind the movement that we have started. "We propose to conduct a public ity campaign for the Bitter Hoot valley that will be of substantial and permanent value to the farmers, even tgore than the business man. "Our first stroke in this direction was to make an exhibit of McIntosh Red apples at the Sixth National ap ple show, which, as you know, Woel the abig first prize for the most at tractive display of apples, the most Important award offered. utl next was to give the greatest possible ad vertisement to tilts supremacy of Bitter Root valley apples, not only here, but in newspapers and maga zines elsewhere. "Our next move was to exploit in like manner the fact that the Mon tanta exhibit, composed largely of Bitter Root valley apples won the first prize medal for the choicest varieties of apples displayed at the exposition of the Ambrican Pomolog 11al society. "Our reason for pushing this pub licity Is that wve believe by persist ent effort it will mean ultimately thousands of dollars to the growers here by the creation of special mark ets and otherwise. - "By developing every opportunity for beneficial advertisement honestly and then hammering away Ineessent ly we expect to provide service to the farmers as well as the business men of the Bitter Root valley that will be of considerably more value to them than the amount of money they lhavr invested in it. We have al ready produced results as you will observe in the local newspapers. "We propose to provide an alto getlier different kind of Mervice to the farmers especially, too. Not only is our building thrown open to meet ings of farmers' organizations and farmers' institutes, but we contem plate giving, free of charge to our members, four lectures during the winter season, each one illustrated by 50 stereopticon slides, the sun jects being: 1, "The Development of Agriculture;" 2, "Dairying;" :, "Pre paring the Seed Bed;" 4, "Fertiliza tion of the Foil." "In addition to this, we are ar ranging to have presented in the lo cal motion picture houses, free to our members, tvo motion picture plays, showing the introduction of modern methods of farming, entitled: 1, "Back to the Old Farm;" 2, "The Evolution of Harvesting." "This is just the beginning. We also plan to have all of our farmer members receive regularly each month 1vithout trouble or expense to them all of the agricultural bulletins and publications obtainable from the department of agriculture, and such other printed matter as can be se cured elsewhere, which are applicable to conditions in this locality. "For Instance, the booklets that we will have sent out the first month from the department of agriculture are: 1, "The Agricultural Outlook;" 2, "The Potato-Tuber Moth:" 3, "Promising New Fruits." Besides this, from another source, we will have mailed out, "Tile Golden Stream," a plain, everyday textbook on the many phases of dairying. "And still another sort of service is a part of our program. We have already established an employment bureau to which the farmers and the business men can turn 'when they need help in a hurry, 1'Moreover, we Intend to watch for an4 gelze upon every otlher tippor With the biggest stocks, best assortments and lowest prices The.
