Once more we warn the proprrty owners in
Astoria, that something had better be doing
here pretty quick or our greatest chance will
be lost. This may sound absurd to you,
but if you don't wake up we will have the
"I told you so," on you before long. We
are in a position to know what is going on
and we know that if Astoria don't take ad
vantage of her chance, with the start she has,
that she will be the second city in size and
importance at the nuuth of the Columbia
instead of the first, in less than two years.
Now we know that no loyal Astorian after
giving this matter a little serious thought
wants to see this thing happen, nor do we,
and we are not going to let it happen
if we can help ourselves.
This is an Astoria real estate firm with
the object of 50,000 people in 19 JO away up
our ladder, and we are going to make a fight
for Astoria, the most important sea
port on the Pacific coast, but we can t
do it all alone. We must have help. AH
we ask of you is to come to our office and list
all the property you have to sell and give us
ammunition for the "big guns" we are
We can interest outside capital if we have
anything to offer, so no matter what you
have or where it is, if it is worth $50 or $50,

busy. We say emphaticallydon't put it
off, delays are dangerous, especial
ly right now.

what we have to offer. Have some good bargains.
