Our investment in the tract of land at the month of the Columbia River known as
"FLAVEL" set the stamp of approval and faith in the Columbia Harbor as the greatest
transshipment point of the Pacific Northwest and on "FLAVEL" as the most advan
tageous point in that harbor for the meeting of rail and water transportation facilities.
The unqualified indorsement by the late Collis P. Huntington, who at the time of hi3
death was making all arrangements to make "FLAVEL," at the mouth of the Columbia
River, his great rail and ocean terminal for the Pacific Northwest.
James J. Hill, through his son, Louis W. Hill, President of the Spokane, Portland &
Seattle R. R. Co., announced that at "FLAVEL" they found every condition for a great
rail and water terminal point more nearly in perfection than at any other in the North
west, and voiced the decision of their directors that at this point they would establish
their terminals for the S., P. & S. t '
. Within a thousand feet of the high-tide line the channel, with a depth of 40 feet,
furnishes an open roadstead to the sea only seven miles away. From this there stretches
to the west and south a great level plain, fertile beyond description, studded here and
'there with beautiful spruce,- making a veritable park of the several thousand acres.
This combination of a deep land-locked harbor, with a flat adjacent upland, makes
the most ideal economical rail and water terminal possible. It also makes street grade
and city construction of the greatest permanency at the least cost. So nearly perfect
are all natural conditions for city building of great commercial proportions, that it is
the common expression, "How could it have remained unoccupied so long?"
Faith is the mainspring and stay of human activities. Our faith has been fully justi
fied. Hill's great transcontinental railway is at "FLAVEL." He is installing the first
unit of his great docking facilities there; millions of tons of import and export are
knocking at our door for transmission and calling upon us to make ready by throwing
the "FLAVEL" properties upon the market for settlement. Therefore, we have placed
the same with the WARRENTON-ASTORIA TOWNSITE CO., as our Sole Agents and
we invite the investing public's notice to the literature and advertising of this company
as the special features that will surely make this a fruitful investment for any man.
