TRUTH BEARS REPEATING
Where seven railroads meet the ocean-going vessels of the world must be a great business center. There is no exception to
this rule. The Willamette River skirts University Park on the south and west, the Columbia River on the northv with four
traiis-continental and three interstate railroads centering in its midst.
The Union Pacific Southern Pacific, Northern Pacific
and Great Northern four great trans-continental rail
roadscross, recross and surround University Park. The
Portland A Seatle, Oregon Railroad ft Navigation Com
pany and the Oregon ft Washington Railroad also have
lines thru University Park. These railroads are main
lines and. not branch line
' University Park is no outside, wildcat speculation. It
has been within the city boundaries of Portland for four
teen years. It has Bull Run water, a 30-acre public park
owned and kept by the city, city schools, quick transpor
tation, electric arc street lights, graded streets, cement
walks, a building restriction, three systems of wide boule
vards, view of Cascade and Coast Ranges of mountains,
view of four perpetually snow-covered mountains, high,
level and sightly, and the seat of Columbia University.
Capitalists lend money freely on University Park lots for
What Does It Mean?
It means that mills, factories, jobbing houses, whole
sale houses, banks, hotels, retail stores, business houses
of every description, are seeking locations in the vicinity
of this bustling center. It means that lots now selling
'for $6 per front foot, or $300 each, will, within a very
short time, advance to $100 per front foot, or $6,000 each.
Study the Picture
Look at the location of the navigable rivers ; look at the
location of the railroads .and proposed railroads; look at
the street car lines and proposed lines; look at the factory

districts, north, south and west; look at the boulevards
and wide, streets; see where the drydock. stockyards,
packing-houses, lumber mills and the Columbia Univer
sity are located. See where McKenna Junction and
Maegly Junction are located. You know that it will be
only a question of a short time till this condition will
make the cheapest lot in University Park worth $100 per
Don't forget that lots at St Johns advanced from $100
each to $10,000 each since 1901, and that advance was
made on the strength of only one freight spur or branch
railroad. St Johns today has no main line, and yet there
are lots in St Johns that cannot be bought for less than
$10,000 that sold in 1901 for less than $100. Remember
also, that in 1900 and 1901 I foretold, thru the col
umns of this paper, what would take place In St Johns,
and those who followed my advice made big fortunes.
Those who will follow my advice now and buy a few
lots at University Park within die next 00 days will make
big profits within the next three years.
