New Orleans Association of Com
merce, made a tour of the Pacific
coast last spring inspecting trade
conditions and harbor facilities, and
was in Portland for Reveral days In
the latter part of May. He was
strongly impressed by. the municipal
terminals of this city, and on his re
turn to New Orleans wrote an article
for the bulletin of his association in
which he characterized the Portland
terminals as the finest on the coast
and recommended strongly that Port
land be included in the itinerary of
the proposed steamship line.
Captain G. Amundsen, harbor master

FEARED THIS YEAR
Crop in Oregon May Be Larg
er Than Normal.
EASTERN OUTLOOK GOOD
Prices Are Steadily Declining la AM
Sections to More Reason
Th potato crop In Oregon will he as
large as last year and probably larger.
The condition of the crop Is officially
estimated at 98 per cent of normal and
in many of the important potato growing
countries a condition of 100 per cent Is
reported. In spite of the high cost of
seed It is figured that the acreage will
be only 4 per cent less than In 1919. A
considerable part of tha crop last yesr
was lost during the severe winter and
this caused the shortage snd high prices
In the spring months. If the entire crop
Is saved this season, prices should again
be on a reasonable basis.
The Indications slso point to large
potato crops In other parts of the United
States. The acreage of the country as a
whole is about 96 per cent of last year,
but tho improvement In condition Indi
cates a larger crop. The government
figures the total output at 888,000.000
bushels, or about 30.000,000 bushels over
the production of 1919. Field notes of
the bureau of crop estimates report
a 10 per cent Increase In potato acre
age In Aroostook county, Maine, slight
ly below expectations in Illinois, very
short in Indiana and normal In Kansas.
The condition of the crop is reported good
in Colorado, New England, Delaware,
Maryland, New Jersey. Pennsylvania.
Mississippi. Nebraska and Montana, fair
in Tennessee and Illinois, normal in Kan
sas, progressing rapidly in New York,
promising in Utah, variable in Indiana
and the Red river valley of Minnesota.
The early New Jersey crop Is starting

crop by counties, expressed In percent

people will tell you that nothing is safe that pays more than &. If
that were so there would be very few rich men or -women in the world
today. There are hundreds of investments absolutely safe, that pay
hundreds of per cent every year. These investments were made at the
start, at the beginning of things.
We offer you for a very short time an ABSOLUTELY SAFE invest
ment that will undoubtedly pay h0 or more every year, and grow
more valuable every year. We have just purchased and are operating
an old established salmon, clam, beef and vegetable cannery, a gem-v
eral store, a hotel and a water transportation business, all so strate
gically located as to be without competition. We are packing and ex
pect to pack 25,000 cases of red salmon this year. Last week we
launched our new $20,000 freighter that will be placed on this 7-hour
run, carry 65 tons at a load, with a freight rate of $15 a ton each way.
We are not speculating. Every case of goods we pack is CONTRACTED
for before it is packed. We have enough freight in sight to pay for the
boat in a few months. This week we let the contract for the new tour
ist hotel and every room is engaged for months ahead. Every dollar
you invest with us is used to increase our output, to enlarge the busi
ness. There is no promotion stock, n debts, no agents, no salaries to
officers. Every employe is a heavy stockholder. The company is in
dorsed by the banks, Commercial Club and business houses. The capital
stock is only $100,000, all non-assessable. The shares just now are
selling for TEN CENTS. You can invest any sum from $25 up. Send
