Where seven railroads meet the ocean-going vessels of the World there must be a great business center.
There is ho exception to this rule. The Willamette River bounds University Park on the south and West the
Columbia River on the north, with four transcontinental and three interstate railroads centering in its midst
:; :' The Union Pacifit, Southern-Pacific. Northern Pacific and
Great Northern four great ' transcontinental -railroads cross,'
recross and surround University Park.-" The Portland & Seattle,

Railroads Make Cities
Railroads made St. Paul, Minn.,-250,000 population, then
' centered at a point 12 miles away, and mad Minneapolis' 300,"
000 population. ' Railroads formed a center almost in the front
doors of Chicago, St, Louis and Cincinnati, and . like magic
prang up Indianapolis,-150,000 population. At the junction of
. three railroads in an open, bleak prairie Des Mojnes grew to
150,000 population.: The location of every inland populous city
was determined by the advent of railroads If railroads have
done such wonderful things without water' transportation, what,
will railroads do for University Park, with the-assistance of two
great navigable rivers? Have ye eyes and see not? "
University Park is no outside,' wildcat speculation. .'It has
been within the city boundaries of Portland for 14 years. Mt
has Bull Run water, a 30-acre public park owned and kept by
the city, city schools', quick transportation,' electric arc lights,
graded streets, cement walks,' a building restriction, three sys
tems of wide boulevards,' view of Cascade and Coast Ranges of
; mountains,; view of four perpetually snow-coye'red mountains,!
high level and sightly, and the seat of Columbia University,

location of the railroad': and proposed " railroads ;' look at the .
streetcar lines; look at the factory districts, north south and
west; look at 'the boulevards and wide streets; see where the
drydocks, stockyards, packing-houses, lumber mills and the Co-
lunibia-University- are- locatedr-Notice-theJpcation of the' pro- -
posed Harnman tunnel. . See : where McKenna Junction and
Maegly function are located. You know that It wfll be only
a question of a short time till this condition .will make' the
cheapest lot in University Park worth $100 per front foot.' ' -
Read the Ads
Real estate advertisers tell of all the advantage Iflcerjr to
come to their property. Read what other dealers hare to say
about their property, and note how little it is In comparison to
what we truthfully say about the Peninsula. There are, a million
quiet places around Portland to sleep, and most of them hare
charming scenery, but there is only one Peninsula, and Univer
sity Park is its center. It is a noisy, bustling business place.
The music of the band saws, the melodies of the planers,' the
bumping of the switch engine," the tooting of the steamers,' the
Rah I Rah I Rah I of the college boys, and the jingle of the
golden twenties enliven -our dreams. -. i ,

STOP! THINK! Where are New York. San FrsacUeo" and aJI
the great commercial centers of the world? On the sea coast. Whyf'
Because their doors are open to the commerce of the entire world. ' Com
merce makes cities. Observe the coast line of-tba Jaciiia. Y oa will set
only three good bays suitable for harbors San Francisco, Coos Bay and -Puget
Sound. Coos Bay, with its central location, thousands of acres
oal Uia adjaat,-ittd tie largest-tributaj-y belt of standing timber
in any port tn the entire world, opens ner doors to the great oriental
trade. - -1 - - ; ' .
COOS BAT is destined to be a city second to none on the great
Pacific Coast. What would a lot be worth on Broadway, New York
City, today? What would it have teen worth 200 years ago? Consult '
a map and observe the similarity in the locations of New York City
and Coos Bay. What New York is to the Atlantic, Coos Bay is to the
; Pacific. Can yon sfford to miss a chance like this?
