One of the most essential elements
In city building or the development
of any given section of the country
Is that of adequate transportation fa
cilities. Oregon City Is particularly
well altuated In thla respect for, in
addition to being on the main line
of the South-em Pacific railroad, but
fourteen mllea from Portland, ahe al
ao haa dally boat service to that city
and consequently enjoys most favor
able freight ratea. That the shipping
of Oregon City reslly amounts to
something may be gained from the
statement that freight to and from
Oregon City mllla each year totals
400,M0 tons. ,
However, It la with more moderate
affairs that the average person Is In
terestedhe Just wante to know that
he may get somewhere if he desires
and that his produce may be easily
sent to market. Clackamas county
has special advantages In thnt re
spect, resulting In greater net returns
to the farmer, truck gardener, poul
try raiser, fruit raiser or dairyman.
And, by the way, thla Is certainly the
banner dairying section of tbe West.
But that subject Is dealt with else
where In this edition. In addition to
the Southern Pacific railroad and
water transportation ' the Portland
Railway, Light ft Power company op
erates an Interurban line between
Portland and Oregon City, maintain
ing a half hour service and also carry
ing mnll, express and freight. So the
question of transportation has been
thoroughly solved here and requlrea
no further consideration from the
prospective settler.
Chances ar that In coming to Ore-

Navigation company and Southern

In the East will gladly give you more
detailed Information, or better yet,

That there was not only ample
room but a legitimate demand for a
second banking establishment In Ore
gon City-has been fully demonstrated
by the phenomenal growth of Tbe
First National Bank alnce It waa orga
nized, and it ranks today among the
leading financial Institutions of West
ern Oregon. According to the last
nubllshed statement tbe bank has
j total resources of f295.373.25, a capi
tal stock of 150.000, surplus fund and
j undivided profits of nearly 13,000.
.while deposits have mounted gradu
i ally upward lo the very respectable
sum of $238,818.41. The circulation is
U.S40. Of the men In charge of bank
ing affairs In Western Oregon there
are probably none better known than

consumer. Insulations' of this nature
contribute directly to tbe health of

be overestimated. Oregon City has
all modern conveniences and not least
among them Is tbe Oregon City Ice

sible prices and delivered to reslden
ces and places of business, as may be
desired. The Messrs. Horton and Cox
are among those who are lending
their best endeavor toward realizing
that Greater Oregon City for which
loyal cltizena are striving, and are in
all particulars among tbe more rep
resentative and substantial citizens.
People considering locating here will

tablishments where they may have
