Portland's bank clearings for
September show the splendid In
crease of 20 per cent over the
same month of tha 'preceding
year. The last month's clear
ings aggregated 330,172,440.01.
aa compared with $26,098,609.86
In September of 1906.
No other city on the Paclno
coast with the possible excep
tion of Spokane, Washington,
has shown so large a percentage
of gain in commerce and bank
ing. The percentages of other
cities hsve averaged 8 to 15 per
cent, which is slso a great gain
compared to the Increase ordi
narily ahown by eastern cities.
September In fruit and agri
cultural regions Is a month
usually showing less gain of
bank clearings than any other
month in the year, for the rea
son that ready cash Is con
nerved for taking care of the

Portland Union Stockyards, Sept. 80.
The future of practically the entire
livestock market depends almost entire
ly upon shippers. For instance there ia
a most excellent demand ruling at this
time for well-finished hogs but the fact
that the receipts are most of Inferior
grades, causes lower prices to rule than
would otherwise be the caae.
Of this President Caughtrey says:
"If we could get finished hogs we might
be able to obtain a better price, but the
fact is the present run of poor hogs Is
keeping tne market down.
. "Sheep are firm in all lines.
"The cattle market Is very well main

Klamath Falls, Or., Sept 30. Assess
or J. P. Lee haa Just completed the 1907
assessment ron ror Klamath county.
It shows a total valuation of 37.561.779.
as against 36,094,094 last year, an In
crease of nearly 31,500,000. T'oiber
lands bear all of the Increased valua
tion, and more, for this year the non
tillable lands are assessed at 35,182,828,
as against 33,495,915 last year, while
tne improved property of the county,
together with the improvements thereon
and the cattle, horses, sheep, etc., are
valued at 3219,828 less than a year ago.
As there has been a great deal of money
spent In Klamath county the past year
in jmprovemems, me general opinion Is
that the total assessment, outside of the
non-tiuaoie lands, should have at least
equaled that of a year ago.
