Tenth Ths harbor of Coos bay Is
ths only fuel ' harbor south of Puget

the Faciflo entrance of . the Panama

Immediately surrounding the bay to be
about 400 squsrs miles. Ths veins srs
blsnket veins snd vary in thickness
from S to It feet. It is estimated that
ths Coos bay fields contain ovsr 1,000.
000,000 tons of coal, and if mined at

would require 1,000 - years to sxhaust
this flsld. - - '
It la sn undlsoutabls fact that vessel
with a carrying capacity of 1,000 tons
osn carry coal cheaper than the vessel
with only a capacity or i.ouvtons.
Therefore, the larger ths vessel ths
cheaper can coal be laid down in the
cities of our non-fuel harbors on ths
Paalfla and. ths . manufactories and
homes consuming this coal will be bene
fited thereby; also, ths cheaper that a

Dr. James Wlthycombs said In part:
Ths Pacific Northwest Is undoubtedly
entering upon the greatest sra of de
velopment ever known on-Tths coast
Geographically. Oregon Is most favor
ably located and her coast should be ths
commercial sons fpr ths populous cen
ters or ins world. Every condition con
ducive to tbs upbuilding of a great
maritime commerce can be found here,
as her coast Is studded with harbors
from the month of ths Columbia to
Coos bay, and her farms, forests and
mines are teeming with natural wealth.
This brings up ths question of mar-
ksts. A market to be a market in fact
as well as in nams Is a plaoa where sn
equitable exchange la consummated.
In the absence of competition markets
srs prone to become unfair. There Is
a widespread feeling that ths markets
for livestock Snd soma other agricul
tural commodities of this stats are un
fair to the producer.
Portland by, reason of her location
should bs ths-grsatest commercial city
or the Pacific coast. Her destiny, how,
over, rests wholly In ber ability to de
velop attractive markets. . Uvery loyal
cltlsen is proud of her financial achieve
ments and her standing among ths cities
or tne coast. . ' 1
The livestock Industry of this State
Is capable of assuming Immenss propor
tion If afforded ths proper encourage
ment Ths stser snd hog built ChicagoJ.

Ths cow. stser snd hog will maks Fort
land ths greatest city on. ths Pacific
coast f given Sn opportunity.. But to
reach - thle, present market conditions
must bs revolutionised. Not only should
ths local trade bs supplied, but outside
marketa should bs Invsded ss well. To
day tbs farmers snd stockmen scarcely
receive ths cost of production for their
animals, while ths consumer Is charged
good prices.; It is this Illiberal policy
that discourages h livestock Industry.
Tanas Should Save afore.
We realise that Portland la becoming
famous for being ons of the greatest
wheat shipping points on this continent.
but there is a feeling of suspicion that
ths pries is not siwsys kept at tbe top
notch. A ton of wheat costs ths miller
i24.T. -T- , : -v.-
The country people srs keenly Inter
ested in the deep channel to ths sea
and every other movement to strengthen
tne commerce or Portland. But when
large ships load at ber docks, carrying to
distant marketa ths products of our
f a rm a at lower frelcht rates the
producers expect a just proportion of
Ui emoluments. 4ln addition to ths im
provement of ths Columbia rlvsr con
certed action should bs taken by ths
people of ths stats to have every har
bor On our coast Improved ' ao as to
-strengthen ths commerce of every seo-
tlon. When we have active competitive
markets at Portland, Astoria, Tillamook,
Taqulna and Coos bay, then we shall '
see ths -stats develop with leaps and
bounds. Give agrlculturs a square deal
and the prosperity of our . people is

puDiio attention to the undeveloped re

have been charmed with our wonderful
climate, pleased with our generous hos

Whst Is most needed how Is a united
effort upon the part of all our cltlsens
in this great effort for the Improve
ment of our harbors snd ths development

ought to exist between ths different
sections of ths stats.
Congress bss appropriated for ths Im
provement of ths Columbia river during
tns past II years 14.425,180. All of
this princely -sum hss been expended
