' impressed with the outlook
for St. Helens and Columbia
'ounty. There is no condition
that could possibly arise that
uld halt the development of
the county to any great extent
and the people know it and ap
preciate it. Confidence and
optimism reign nupreme. We
have everything to look forward
to and every confidence that ours

Ther ia crninrr n Vi built in
Portland a la-in and extensive
iPost office building and when it
wmes to tha material out of
hich it ia to be constructed it
I'-found that there ia no rcDort
I of Oregon stone on file in any of
the dennrtmint at WnsMnctnn.
I From other iiftp thr la nlentv
I of official reports on the quality
'"' quantity of building atone,
but from Oregon there aeems to
j none. When a government
Gilding in this atate ia to be
erected, the material, If It is
atone, has to be imported from
aome other state, while if the
facta were known the State of
Oregon has plenty of the finest
quality. In fact, there ia some
stone in St. Helena which would
be first class material for a build
ing but that fact ia not known at
Washington. Stone quarrvinir ia
one of the big industriea of this
community and it should be ad
vertised if we are to get the
benefits from the business to
which we are entitled.
On another page in this paper
will be found the premium lists
of the Columbia County Fair to
be held in St. Helens on Septem
ber 2, 20 and 27 this year. These
premiums amount to about $1000

of the county. This is a Colum
bia County Fair and it is ex
pected that exhibitors will come

The pavilion is being built on
Washington Square and the

Mr. (I. L. Tarbell of Yankton
is the President of the Fair As
sociation and is personally in
charge of getting the buildings
and grounds in shape, ably as
sisted by several prominent citi
zens of the county. Now that
we have a fair established it is
up to the people of the county to
make of it a permanent and suc
cessful event, a gathering of the
people of the county where ideas
can le exchanged, as well as a
place where the wonderful prod
ucts will be exhibited.
