FIVE HUNDRED THOUSARD TORS OF LIGNITE COAL INSIQHT ONLY FIFH-FOUR IILES FROIil
PORTLAND. The property of the Consumers' Coal Company consists of 840 acres of coal land with-tre-mendous
deposits of coal under every acre. The mine was opened TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO. It is located
two miles north of Kelso. Washington, on the Northern Pacific Railroad and the COWLITZ RIVER. The'
mini is three-quarters of a mile from the river bank and railroad, connected by a tramway, already graded.
The river at this point is NAVIGABLE FOR STEAMERS. SCHOONERS AND BARGES, within a few hours of
the dty of PORTLAND. SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS have already been spent in developing this property. It is not a prospect but a REAL.
RICH AND HUGE JUNE. THREE THOUSAND FEET OF TUNNEL have been completed, penetrating a solid vein of coal EIGHT FEET WIDE. A shaft sunk
60 feet below the Iowa tunnel, shows ANOTHER VEIN EIGHT FEET WIDE; three-quarters of a mile north of the main tunnel is STILL ANOTHER TUN
NEL. 200 feet long, showing 8 feet of SOLID COAL Nobody can tell the quantity of coal there is hidden under this area of 840 acres. The buried wealth
is beyond calculation. The coal is UfcAn, wiinuui a anam, orui uwva iuw
IS AS PERFECT AS ANY LIGNITE COAL EVER FOUND IN THE WORLD. Read the
analysis made by two parties at different times.
By September first this mine will be producing TWO HUNDRED TONS OF COAL A
DAY. .At the present price of coal in Portland, this will mean an aggregate product of
SIXTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS EVERY DAY.

AT LAST, PORTLAND HAS A CHANCE TO GET OUT
OF THE GRASP OF THE RAILROAD AND COAL TRUSTS.
At last, Portland has the opportunity to get back some of the
money that her people have so submissively given over to the coal;
barons. At last, every person in the city has the opportunity to
become a part owner in a great coal mine: has the opportunity to ;
participate in its gigantic profits, limited only by the amount they are to invest; has the opportunity to prevent the coal famine, to be relieved of the incon
venience of car shortage and be independent of the coal barons and their rule of exorbitant prices.
Do you realize what it means? Coal, mined on the properties of the Consumers' Coal Company is brought down a three-quarter mile tramway; is
dumped upon barges in the Cowlitz river, over the Northern Pacific tracks. Here the company owns a 380-foo water ront. The barges are towed to
Portland, unloaded and delivered at prices that will force the railroad and coal trusts to take notice. Their competition iwuT never fj1 ? af JJ J
bucket. Their long hauls; their labor of producing and carrying through the mountains; .mf.Sj. 2$S
be of no avail. HERE WILL BE A HOME PRODUCT; MINED AT HOME, SOLD AT HOME AND CONSUMED AT HOME: WITH AN ENORMOUS SURPLUS FOR EASTERN
AND PACIFIC SHIPMENTS.
on rs
By January first the output will reach FIVE HUNDRED TONS A DAY, EQUAL TO
FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS A-DAY. '
Coal mined on this property can be shipped to Portland by RAH., BARGE OR BOAT
WITH ALL OF THE GREAT ADVANTAGES OF CHEAP RATES. The demand for coal
in the Pacific Northwest is so great that these mines will be
kept busy twenty-four hour in the day from the moment they
begin operations. It will
follow the general rule of
coal mines, NINETY PER
CENT OF THEM ARE FINANCIAL SUCCESSES OF
GREAT PROPORTIONS. An investment in a coal
mine cannot fail under any circumstances.
