Says lr. Kcktiart.
After spending two month examln

land method with those of New York
.nd Chlcaao. A. K. Erkh.rdt. csshler
of the Meier Frank Comp.ny.returnea
yesterday, convinced that Portland is
the. most promising city In the whole
rountry. He Tlslted San Francisco. Ios
nele. St. I.ouls. Chicago. Philadel
phia and New Tork. He made a
thorough examination of the financial
cor.dlt.on. as well as trade methods.
-I found ererywhere I went. saia
Mr. Frkhardt. "that Portland was held
In hltfb esteem. Pankers. where I
talked with them, believed tliat Port
land was one of the comlnr cities of
the country. I remember meeting two
prominent bankers In New York City.
Ther wanted to know all they could
of Portland. Its possibilities and Its re
aourres. In each case I found their
opinion of the city was based upon
the Idea that, first. Portland Is a very
rnnservatire town that Idea prevailed
everywhere: second, that it is a wai-r-lerel
town, ami that meant there w:is
no rrade to carry the Rood over: and
third that It had the largest unci
veloped area bark of It of any city In
the United States. These three thlnM
made them believe that the city had
a sjreat future.
"All department stores In the coun
try that are up-to-date have offices In
rw Tork for the purchase of goods,
iiuyers are there for all houses and
the opportunities are the same for all.
It makes the Impression strons; that
the country Is about the same wherever
you trn. However, it certainly Kave me
unqualified pleasure to find that Port
land is Just as good as New Tork when
It come to the sale and delivery of
-One thing- I noticed when East was
that times are recarded as "slark."
There wa not the hustle and bustle I
found on prevlou visits, and It was
e.ild that It was due to the possible
disturbance of the tariff schedules, the
pen. line decisions of the Supreme Court
and the comlns; Presidential election.
All three thtnics have their erfect on
the iceneral money market. The banks
never had so much money on hand, but
it sems that It Is not belnar lent to any
considerable extent for development
