The homeieekers' rates from the
east have proven a new stimulus to
emigration. A party of 300 fami
lies reached Portland Friday and
several hundred more are on the
way. Since the Harriman system
has taken up the State of Oregon,
it has been advertised as it never
was before. Rail-road men predict
an increased west bound traffic of
homeseekers and real estate men
generally expect an influx of emi
grants. Those now coming are
mostly families and are generally a
.desirable class. The community
that hopes to profit by euigratioa
has no time to lose in taking ad
vantage of the present situation.
