Emery T. Smith, president of the
First Trust & Ravings Bank and fath
er of Robert K. Smith, arrived In
the city this morning. He was pleas
ed to II ii tl the weather of Roseburg
up to Its usual standard of excellence
and states that the heat In the ex

returned, has been terrific.
Asked by a representative of The
News as to business conditions in

of investment such as mortgages and
p referred bonds there was an abund
t nee of funds, but thai the banks
were Inclined to be conservative in
loans for Industrial purposes.
Regarding thef proposed Coos Bay
and Boise railroad and its purported
bond issue Mr. Smith said: "I nm not
aequainted with the promoters of the
enterprise but I have long known

"I have of course no way of know
ing what syndicate, if any, is to
underwrite the bonds. 1 believe,
however, that one or more transcon

leading financial men of Philadel

The progressive method of rotull-
ing piatos direct from factory to
home, was the result of a strong
popular demand for a system where
the piano buyer would have a chance
to enjoy the same freedom In buying
a piano, as they would 'n purchas
ing other articles of merchandise.
This new system was a l'g suc
cess with Rice & Rice from the start,
and some of the shrewd and most
careful buyers in Roseburg readily
admit that the originating of the
from maker to user system by Rice
& Rice was a boon to the piano buy
ing public of Roseburg.
