St. Johns (lrcadiess Assured The
(inlewny of Commerce.
The follow! 111: is taken from the
N)okk't recently issued, and is so
pertinent that we jirmt iwlow:
At St. Johns will be located the
greater portion of the future man
ufacturing industries of the City of
Portland. The nubstaiitiul growth
of the husiucrts interest of the
place during the lust thirty mouth
Is conclusive evidence of the ecu
liar desirability of the place for man
ufiieturing and commerce. Port
land h by far the largest city in the
State of Oregon. It has at leant
ten times the population of any
other city in tiie state. Its annual
incrcat-c in population is pruhabty
lrrcatcrlhun the entire nicsmil pap
ulation of any ohei,,lHy In the
state, It in lite center 01 liw larg
est belt of merchantable liuilwr Irt
the woild. It U the greatest job
bing center on the North Pacific
Coast. It has InlMitary to it by
ivutor itiiiIl' 1111 iilmixt ttnlliuitcd
empire, sunkicnt to produce a city
ot enormous population and weniui.
The most iinixirtant pnrt of the
couunercial interests of the city
will be Included In its manufiictur
ing and sliipping enterpries. The
greater pan of -thine institutions
must come to St Johiw. Indeed .
there is no other nlace for them
upon the Portland lmthor. At nil
iwlutK excepting along Front street
in tiie City ot I'oniaim iisen, wincn
is now crowded to the utmost limit,
the banks surrounding the Portland
harbor ore either too low for econo
mical construction of buildings or
else too hiirh and precipitous to be
available from the river. No other
ivtlnt mi the Poitlaud harbor has
deep river channel, breadth of bar
lor, rail facilities or sclid river
bank of proper elevation on which
to build mills and factories econo
mically. St. Johns is Mow all the
bridges, which nre inevitable im

river craft. Its harbor is large
enough to accommodate at anchor
an enormous fleet, while the Pot t
laud harbor is now overcrowded.
But a few hundred feet of the avail
nlili- fmntiH'e of St. Toluis has ns
yet been occupied by the industries
which have been locaieu mere.
These industries have produced a
considerable population. The town
has as a resource to insure its fu
ture growth a long stretch of still
unused water frontage capable of
furnishhlg employment to a popula
tion of 40,000 people. In addition
to the frontage 011 the Willamette
Uiver there is the Columbia Slough,
which parallels the Willamette one
and one-half miles to the north, and
bounds the town on that side,
which is now available to river
1 transportation, and which aloiu
, will some day furnish mill and fac-
tory sites sutlicient tc uuuu a wwh
of many thousand people. The
Nortnern Pacific railroad has ex

Mr. Shields thought a majority
of the people should pass on the
chatter, and offered the following
resolution, which at a later slagc of
