will make the markat price for all coffee.
Other coffees may come and go. but Santos
eoffee will remain, with Its hat In the ring.
Today, speaking of this country, we see
s consumptive demand In excess of any
thing ever known before. An advance of
oo per cent In price has not been suf
ficient to check It and the purning of the
Substitute tends further to show the great
financial strength of the buying public.

Veyond thetr wildest dreams, and as they
constitute three-quarters of th entire pop
autiea the ability of the pubMc to buy and

inates the table of these two groups and
their prosperity suggests that no prohib

NEW YORK, Aug. 20. The more con
fident feeling created yesterday by the
speedy settlement of the traction strike
was completely dispelled today by fresh
misgivings regarding current financial and
industrial problems. Prices were firm to
strong at the outset, but eased all around
before midday and weakened before th
close on the aosoiute demoralization which
prevailed in tna 'foreign exchange market
and growing apprehension as to the out
come of the steel workers' strike veto.
favorable develonmenla such as iha re
duct ion of the bank acceptance rate and
prospects of an amlcabl ariiuatment of
differences between Pacific coast oil re
finers and the navy department were
Ignored in the more obvious events of the
Owy.
Call money also offered around for un
settle merit as a result of withdrawal of
funds by interior banks to meet demands
in their respective localities.
n connection with the further slumo of;
exchange on London, Paris and Rome, which !
extended to other continental European cen
ters, it was rumored that the French gov
wnmcnt 11 a entereu into active negotiation:
witn American bankers for a large loan
to stabilize credits, but no confirmation was
lortneoming from high financial Interests.
Autnontie scouted the ldaa of a pro
iractea atriKe in the steel trade, but the
views were not shared bv trader n in

Keenly discriminating investors know that these three issues of Canadian bonds
offer an unusual return upon the investment as well as combining every element of
safety. All three issues are direct tax general obligations of the cities issuing them,
and represent tha highest form of municipal investment securities obtainable.
Within the past few years these three Canadian cities have demonstrated, beyond
a question of doubt, their virility, their stability and their possibilities for extensive
growth and development.
The City of Edmonton bonds are due in 1924; the City of Winnipeg bonds are due
in 1922; the City of Regina bonds are due in 1923.
You cannot find safer or more profitable municipal bonds than these three issues.
They are exempt from all Dominion Government taxation. Principal and interest
is payable in gold in New York.
,We offer them to yield 6 interest. Reservations should be made without delay.

The weekly Oregon crop report of the
eather bureau says:
Some little winter wheat remains to be
arvester. but in most sections threshing of
inter wheat is well advanced. In some
western counties threshing Is being retarded
by lack of adequate equipment. Harvest
of spring wheat is In progress In the more
levated districts and Is generally complete

crop has bet-n threshed. The warm weather
as been favorable tor Irrigated corn, but
most unlrrigated corn needs rain badly.

and are yielding well. Harvest of early
pples is in progress. Peaches are coming
Into market In increasing quantities. Host
unlrrigated fruit Is -of small size. Dropping
of prunes continues. A good crop of ever
green blackberries is being marketed. Second-crop
strawberries are in market.
Practically all hay crops, except the latet
cuttings of alfalfa, are out of the way. The
warm weather has been favorable for alfalfa
where there has been sufficient water. Feed
on the range Is becoming scarcer, but some
stock is finding subsistence In meadows
and stubble fields. Stock is deteriorating
in places, but in most sections is holding
up well.
Irrigated potatoes and gardens are gen
erally promising. Where not irrigated they
are generally su tiering xrom drouth. Mel

fairly plentiful in market. Hops are suffer
ing somewhat from drouth. High temper
