This speculative movement spread
gradually over the country, moving
westward. It drat came under the
writer's notice In Southern California.
Then it spread to middle California,
and town sites were laid out In every
direction. Coming northward, It reached
Oregon and Washington generally In

towns Portland, Tnnoma. Seattle.
Then It spread to the smaller towns
and villages Albany, Snlem, Oregon

speculation reached Astoria, a few
month only before It began to recede.
CONFIDENCE THE KEY.
The Interest-paying power on proper
ties most lullnted ceii-sod almost Imme
diately upon the stoppage of an up
ward movement, because Interest on
mortgages on such properties was be
ing paid out of profit from the rise of
values. The other classes of mortgages
quickly followed suit In defaulting on
Interest, The value of the security
rapidly fell below the mortgage value,
and the great body of Eastern Innocent
dividual ability would be sufficient to
gather that amount of population soon.
Assuming the value of such a popula
tion at one dollar per capita per day,
Mr. Hammond would start with over
three million dollars per annum against
him at the outset, besides all the val
ues of the present city and its im
provements. A strong combination of capitalists
can do this. By throwing their money
