We mav take the pulse of a state in hand and determine from the heart-beats of its industries and resources very much what its tomorrow will be.
" What shall we say as to the state whose chief symptoms are: Millions of acres of fertile lands awaitirigthe touch of the plow, billions of feet of the
finest timber inviting the woodman's axe and the markets of the world ; waterfalls and streams ready for the harness of servitude in the generating of electricity
and power; great stock ranches wherein the' finest animals can beraised with none of the inconveniences and setbacks of a severe winter; hills rich in mineral

the advancement of the state. ' We can add to these . its enormous productions in every branch of agriculture, horticulture arid manufactures, with railroads
threading their. way with commercial sustenance to all growing sections of the statc-These are some of the signs of Oregon's future and-the conclusion-to-be
drawn therefrom is obvious. y

Oreo-nh is one of the vouncest communities of America. The Oregon country passed to the sovereignty of the United States a brief sixty years ago

of mill and factory, exports and imports, in fact eyery branch of industry and activity shows a decided increase. The banks are full of
jckets are protruding with plenty; and yet the bright sun 01 prosperity is hardly above the horizon, for Oregon is yet in her early morning.
The equable climate and bountiful resources early attracted the westward'-ound cavalcades of settlersho found therein a land of plenty which gaveto
them a livelihood, not asking much in return. We find that in Oregon Nature has set up a storehouse of the things that are good for man. This word is
going out to the entire world and is bringing its throngs of hopeful homeseekers from the less encouraging districts of the" East. And today the opportu
nity for the homeseeker and for the investor Was never greater. Few, if any places, offer so much to the newcomer, whether he be capitalist, farmer or
workman. The need of all classes cannotbe emphasized too clearly. N; ' 1 ' '
The pessimistic spirit, wren the Lewis and Clark exposition was developedpointed out a disastrous reaction from the activities attendant thereto,Jjut
there has been no reaction along those lines. Commercial and industrial activity have swept ahead on a broader scale under the. impetus which the ex
position gave. Realty values in Portland and throughout the state have increased and are increasing steadily. Portland, with Oregon behind it, and
with Oregon's wealth and resources behind it, was never greater than today. !
Other far-seeing men of affairs from all parts of the union declare that the dirriax'of Oregon's greatness is now a mere glimmer in the. future.'.
Men with the absolute courage of their convictions are the men of the hour in Oregon today. Men twho will build more skyscrapers more electric
railways more mills and factories. Men of this sort are flocking to Oregon in countless numbers from all parts of America. We want thousands more
just such men with the "get there and stay there" material in them. There are thousands of rich resources in Oregon that await the developer, the capitalist
and the laborer. ' : '::'' ;'T ' 'V'".- "
