Then there is Mr. Thos Lnnlois
new residence built at a cost of near

bum which has cost about $1,S00.
. -These are both nice modern homes
ami show the true spirit of the build
ers in trying to help improve the
town. - ..
Amonjr other houses that we think
of now are three bungalows built by
John Nielson, two by Steve Curren,
and in fact there arc so many that
we cannot mention them all here,
but it is sttfc to say that the. new res-.
deees, cxher than those mentioned
wiir amount to at leas 25,000 in
Then there .is the new school
building in Uundou Heights. This

One of the large factors in the
improvement of the city during the
past year has been the opening and
unproving of streets. Since January
v. l j 1913 there have Ivcen many -new
"ts graded, or started and die ag
($'cfi&c amn of he ji;ontfaK
gone, up itH the ntarvy thouwmlai
. of dollars.
Aiming mimic of the big contracts
have lccn Ocean Drive and Fourth
'St., Jackson Ave; formerly A Street,
Chicago Ave., formerly Main St.,
and -many others of equal magni
tude, resides sevefid small protects,
such as 9th -Street West, 1 1th Street
West and others- The aggregate
amount spent for street improve
ment w ill.lxc at least fl(HMHM), which
is certainly no small sum when it is
tonviiicrcd that no paving was done,
. the paving prowitton will no doubt
gtl a gonml start during the year 1914.
The lUudim Schools during the
jbj4 year has uude much , progrew
and a imtnU'r of new departments
have Iveen added, among which is a
domestic science department, and in
addition to this the high school has
made several improvements in its.
roursvs and the school is now on
the accredit nil list of the biggest
universities of the country. ,
HUndon is one of the highest
mantifAituring towns in Oregon,.
the payroll here and in the nearby '
mills and logging camps amount tl.

'Among the prjuctple wvonnfAc
turing indtisWiirs are the lumlver
.mills the veneer plant, the woolen
mill and other smaller indiurru.-i.
The output, of the woolen mill is
abouj 5,000 annually and this' iu
stjtiqton pA.vs in wayes, aboirt $2,00()
Oix of the'big factors in the li
iiaiu iiil interests of the city is the
Iwtabfook' Company, which tsmade
HP largely f local capital and is
managed liy A. I'. Ivstubrook of San
Kmnciseo. This conipan'.' operates
"the steamers Speedwell, 'Jm field and
Handon befween'this citv' an'd San

.lluulon business u its sltipniitg in

Elizabeth regularly hetween here
and San Francisco, this boat is the
pioneer on this run anil carries tut
immense of freight besides the lum
ber from'the Prosper Mill which is
also a Kruse institution.
Then there is that big, new boat
the Grace Dollar owned by the Dol
lar . Steamship Company and has a
carrying capacity of 1,200,000 feet
lumber. This boat is carrying lum
ber for the Alfred Johnson Lumber
An idea of- tlic vast amount of
shipping from this port can be had
when it is known that the board
feet shipped out during the past year
including lumber, ties, poles, shin-,
gles, box shooks, etc. is far in excess
of one hundt'eed .million, and a con
servative estimate of the value of this
lumber would be 1,500, 000.
In connection. with the shipping .
industry should be mentioned the
incorporation of the Port of Handon
which carried by more thaii two .to
one vote; and when this commission
, begins to get' in its work it will, mean
thousands if not millions of dollars
in valuation to the city a.nd the Cb
quille Valley. '
. the hu.sine.ss. moral and educational
interests of the city might be men
tioned the Handon Public Library,
an institution of which we till feel
proud and one that is deserving the.
support of the people. It is hoped
that a special tax -for the main
tenance of the .library will be voted
at the next city election and then it
will be better able to meet the de
mands of the people.
The Handon churches are also
keeping up with the times and will
no doubt erect several new edifices
within the next year or so'.. The
new Presbyterian church, it is; hoped
will he. completed' in a short" time.
A brief summary of the building
ami the other improvements will
show t,be enormous amount . of
money that has changed hands with-
in the year.
A conservative estimate of the, cost
of new buildings would be in excess
of jUMMMH). the rtreut improve
ment aggregates, aumher' 100,000'.
. 'Che sewer system w bich ,is now ;
under headway -will' eosf another
$S0',(MH) before it is completed.
Other improvements of various
kinds will amount to at least $100,
(MI0 making a total- of. nearly a "half
million dollars in, visible Improve
ments during the year and tjie. busi
ness transacted including lumber,
woolen goods',' vender plant goods
'and various other articles would '
. easily amount to two million dollars.
.This'in a ciry .of 3000 inhabitants
is not so bad, and would certainly
make the citizens of some eastern'
town of two or three times . tin;'
povulation sit up and take notice.
The future of Handon is assured
aitd the people who have nroney to
invest can come to this city'to invest
s it and feel safe as it is sure to, hrii&g
them big return's.
