The Coming Trading Point of Central
Oregon is Madras.
JRey. C. P. Baney, who is probably
tho best informed man ulong this line
in Oregon, lias beon a resident of the
State of Oregon since 1862. Thirty
years of his past lifo has been mostly
spont as an evangelist; he has traveled
over the country afoot, horsobnek and
by wagon; has seen communities
spring op and develop and filially be
come a mighty factor in the upbuild
lug of the state. The metropolis of to-
day Portland was but a village when
he first knew it; today it iaa city sec
ond to none for its size. He has
known this country for many years,
having lived in Prlneville for three
and a half years from the spring of '04
to the fall of '07. He then said that in
the not distant future this country
would blossom like 1 rose. His pre
diction is now coming true, and he
says Madras cannot help but be tue
coming trading center for this region
from the very fact that it lies in the

with his companions spent those ter

roads or even trails titat they were
acquainted with to guide them over

passing without news from the out

his kind, weie determined to succeed,
