Is Interviewed At Reselling On
Way Homo from Trip
Reports of good tlmoB in tho east
wero given by A. E. Adelsporgcr of
this city when ho was in Rosoburg on
his way homo from a visit to Detroit.
In tho Rosoburg Ruvlaw Mr. Adct
Bl'crgor was quoted aB follows:
"Duslnoss la bettor In tho East to
day than over before, nnd thero Is
tlo occasion for hard times talk.
"In Detroit I was surprised to
find great business activity In evi
dence on every hand. Tho big auto
mobllo factories aro operating night
and day and otbor Industries aro en
joying similar prosperity. Tho busi
ness men of that locality aro highly
olatcd ovor conditions, and am look
ing ahead to tho most prosperous
year in tho history of tho country.
Chicago Is also enjoying an era of un
precedented prosperity, nnd every
available man is at work. As a re
sult of tho good times prevailing in
tho East, It Is my opinion that It will
bo but n short tlmo until tho Pacific
Coast will sham In tho general wave
of prosperity that is on tho westward
trend. I talked with many capital
ists nnd flnnuclors, nnd In almost ev
ery Instnnco thoy Informed mo that
ir.onoy was plontlful and that tho big
men or tho country aro now looking
for Investments for tho first tlmo lu
.sovoral years. Michigan, I hollovo
Is ono of tho most prosperous stales
In tho union at tho present time, al
though business lu othor Eastern
states could not ho hotter.
