It Is not our purpose to discuss fully
the advantages offered by the Wll

us in this article, but to confine our re

natural advantages of Oregon City and
Situated on the right bank of .the
Willamette river and at the falls of
the same name, fifteen miles south of
Portland, stands Oregon City, the
metropolis and county seat of Clack
a mas county.
Clackamaa county bas an area of
abou' 1500 square mite which re
duced to acres means nearly one mil
lion. It Is rich In natural resources
and Is adapted to a wide range of In
dustrles. The topography of the coun
ty varies from the broad level valleys
of the illamette to the snow-capped
peaks of the Cascade mountains. Part
of the land bears a heavy growth of
fir, alder, maple, larch and other vari
eties of native timber. The Boil in
tbe valleys and up-Iands Is rich and
very productive. Diversified farming
and fruit growing are the principal
occupations of tbe , people, though
stock raising Is a profitable industry.
Oregon City bas a population of
6.000 prosperous, happy and contented
people. The Willamette falls gene
rates about 50.000 horse power, and
this fact, together with cHeap fuel,
cheap rent, reasonable living expenses
for laboring men and both' rail and
water transportation, combine to
make Oregon City a most favorable
point for manufacturing purposes.
Raw material is at band and a market
for the finished product at our very
doors. At the present time the Day
roll of Oregon City amounts to over
150,000 per month. A large woolen
mill consumes the wool produced in
the Willamette Valley and draws on
the eastern part of the state for more.
The Crown Paper mill affords em
ployment for many men, while
the Willamette Pulp and Paper mills
are the largest on the Pacific Coast
and consume enormous quantities of
