'The records In the city hall will show
that I persistently advocated a common-user
clause with the Willamette

only corporation of those who applied
for franchises' who would make good,
and I strongly objected to the granting
of a franchise allowing freight cars on
Seventh, Street v':-"" ':'.-. V'-

"The records will show that instead
of aiding and helping the franchise and
its provisions I was endeavoring ail the
time that neither of the two corpora
tions (United Railways and Willamette
Traction company) should have an ad
vantage over the other; that both com
panies should come in under a common
user clause and to protect the city in
every possible way. ; The records will
bear me out to that extent

Bankers Declare It Means Addi-
tlonal Prosperity to the ' '
'". , , Oregon Country. ' '.,
Business men and financiers, like far
mere, know ihe-vaiue of rain when it
fails just at the right time. ' Every one
is delighted with the widespread shower
that passed over the Oregon country last
night and this morning, breaking a dry
fortnight that -Jbas been a period of
successful planting and cultivation. The
rain had a stronger bearing -than la
generally supposed on tha financial sit
uation. : ) ; ..'
A Portland hanker said this morning
''Business conditions look bright The
rain immensely Unproved the crop pros
peot for this year.' It same Just at the
right time, and in proper quantity, and
covered a wide spread of country. . The
week closes with a fine business record
for Portland and the tributary country.
The situation looks good from a banking
standpoint." . , i .. m ;- '.,."; .
Clearings for the week ending last
night were 17,141,007.01, an increase of
19 per cent over the same week of 190.
While this increase is not . so great as
tnat snown zor tne preceding 10 weeks,
it is ample to keep Portland in the
front rank of leading cities of the coun
try. that are increasing their bank clear
ings week by week through legitimate
business transactions .: and devoid of
boom features. , , , k. .
Portland's average increase of bank
clearings by weeks for the last two or
three months has averaged about 74
per cent greater than the same weeks
of last year. The slight droo in total
Clearings this week is not accounted fbr,
nor" does It occasion any anxiety, for the
growth shown Is so great that it Is a
matter of no conseauncs whether the
clearings each week keep up the preced
ing week's ratio of increase. The In
crease of balances this week ' was in
greater proportion ' than ? that - of ' tha
clearings. ;; .. -.in:lyv:-::i":,s.-
