"While the advance In oyatera ia
rather sharp," aaya C J. B. Malarkey,
1 a lar local handler, ''the advano la
not out of proportion. The trade In
oyatera baa held wonderfully well all
through the aummer montha and now
that Me regular oyater aeaaon haa
opened the demand la growing greater
day by day. Personally I look for still
higher prices la the future. The sup
ply of what we call natlva oyetere
' Olympias and BhoawaUr bay's Is very
light and the chances are that supplies
j will be amaller than the demand within
a short time, even at advanced figures.
Demand Is growing, very rapidly.
. . BasUra Oysters Are Increasing.
- "However, supplies of eastern trans-
Jilanled oysters are Increasing very rap
dly and 1 expect that when the local
oyatera are shoved out of the way by
th. fnmu iktr will be a sufficient
. supply of eastern stock to take their
place. While the price of local oysters
aavanoes i expect tu wnm "
vsara tha ass tern transplanted will be-
, com cheaper. Th transplanted oyster
Is taking th markets because of Ita
, much better quality, and Is therefor
van cutting down the sales of resru-

There Is great strength In ths local
wheat market as a result of th various

best In many years and foreigners ar
heavy buyers of American wheat at
this time. Export business Is increas
ing locally; the higher prices paid for
? train bringing out (much larger lots
nan formerly. ,
Local flour Is firmer as a result of
tha heavier buying. Export business is
heavier and the advanced prices ar
drawing much cloaer.

SUPERIOR ASSETS FOR
BANK OR INDIVIDUAL
Of the depositors of the Oregon Trust & Sav
ings Bank would gladly accept Home bonds
for their deposits if they could get same. Per
sonally, I am willing to take any Home bonds
at par with 50 per cent stock bonus for all my
balance in that institution; and I will guaran
tee that at least two hundred thousand dollars
more will be taken by other depositors on the
same basis. Don't get worried about the Homo
Bonds. If the total deposits were in these
securities I could pay everybody in full single
handed. You cannot force the sale of Govern
ment bonds or a choice piece of real estate in a
minute's notice. Be prudent and patient, and
reserve your, judgment. The Home Bonds
will more than hold up" their end. :

street car lines, tracs-continental raHroada, gas, electric,
water snd power companies snd every public utility now in
use would hsrdly exist Tbe telephone is not sn unknown
quantity snd its bond issues' sr quite as legitimate as any
first mortgage secured by the assets of either of the abort
corporations or on a piece of real estate. This is strictly a
business proposition ahd by this method of unit mortgages
all progress in great undertakings is provided.
Are skin to these trsnssctions for it is a part of their legs!
right to buy, sell, exchsnge or underwrite part or entire bond
issues. Portland has never been a bond center on account
of Oregon's wonderful natural resources which offered such
other inducements to sttract attention from any. well-secured
first mortgage bond carrying a low rate of interest offered
'by various bond houses, therefore sll public utilities and '
'municipal bond issues put out in this territory were pur
chased and retailed by eastern banks snd trust companies.
Now there comes a time in the history of all cities when
opportunities to GET RICH QUICK in lumber, milling,'
mining or speculating ceases and the community gets down
to looking for tha steady income. Tis then the capitalist,
banker and home-builder looks to the responsible bond
bouses for the investments I am referring to. I have sold
to hundreds of banks and trust companies these and other '
bonds but Oregon is yet too full of play with its forest,
mills and mines to look for a steady income for its savings,
and its financial students have expected too much earning
power for their surplus funds, or to encoursge bond selling!
in this community. They have also become nitty and rude,
to the newcomer for advancing market for its own munici
pal and public utility interest-bearing securities. I hsv no
complsint to make, no excuses to offer. My business is to
BUY AND SELL LEGITIMATE INTEREST-BEARING
SECURITIES, or to act as agent for those who have same
to offer, and no corporation was ever harmed by any sales
I ever made them. I am sensitive to criticism of course; on
the other hand, I am particularly grateful for your favor, and
trust I have conducted myself in your city in such a manner
that any attacks from those inssnely jeslous of my successes
will be ridiculed. I am deeply grateful to many of the de
positors of the Oregon Trust & Savings Bank, to the public
and to the press for their flattering endorsement of my
course and for their kind personal expressions.
