Visitors Should be
Sept. 13. Oregonians who want
to see the most of the big Expo
sition in the shortest length of
time, at the least "expehse'ln the
long-run and with the greatest
comfort and real pleasure,
should be located on the
grounds. This is the conclusion
of the writer after five months
experience and innumberable
conversations with those who
have been both on and off tlie;
Since coming here the writer
has lived fin Oakland, in San
Francisco, and upoii the
grounds. He believes that any
coming for but one week can not '
afford to locate down in the city, j
and really desirable places are !
no longer to be found, except
occasionally, near the grounds.!
If the trip is to be of UVo-weeks,
at least one week, should, be
spent wholly inside the grounds.
Located at Inside Inn, for in
stance, one is able to see Inside
of one week all that can be seen
in two weeks if one lives away
from the grounds. The morn
ings here are the desirable time
at' the exposition, and this is the
time wasted when one lives
away. The night offers the won
derful illuminations and at elev
en o'clock are the extraordinary
illuminated flights of the avia
tors. Much of this is necessarily
missed if one must go by car
down into the city to spend the
nights. Usually people get so
tired that they really can not re
main up with any comfort or
pleasure. When at Inside Inn it
is possible to take a rest when
ever desired, and it is possible to
view practically everything at
night from" the hotel windows.
There is evry convenience and
comfort at this hotel, .the rates
run. from $1 upward and break-
fast can he had for fifty cents.
There is a regular dining room,
also a cafe where one can spend
as nVuch or as little as may seem
desirable. The rooms are large
and well furnished and a stay at
Inside Inn is a real pleasure. If

Re'iewing tho business' situa

bank's trade letter (or Septem
ber says that the affairs of the
j world most directly affecting
.tbisnation have assumed such
'an aspect that an opinion ex
pressed today may be of no value
tomorrow, because of contlnuai
jly changing circumstances, but
nevertneiess tne situation Is full
of hope. Much may occur ,ith- -in
the next 30 days to give the
United States opportunity.,. to

prosperity. Definite discussions
concerning a basis of 'ending the
European war and the cominsr
of British and French represent
atives to settle the fqreign ex
change situation should produce
early results. If these factors
move together toward the right
end the United States will come
into its own commercially. "
Referring to business and In
dustrial conditions in the Pacific"
Northwest, the trade letter says:
"While conditions are not any
where near normal in the lumber
business, there is a feeling .of
hopefulness among the manufacturers.-
-Their viewpoint ,is
affected by the heavy crops
throughout the country, by in
creased shipments by rail, by the
orders received from the East,
and because Eastern lumber
manufacturers report increased
inquiries. In view of the fact
that lumber manufacturing is i
the most important industry on
the Pacific coast, from point iJf
view of the creation of wealth
and labor employed, it is plain
that many of the suggested re
medies lie wholly within the in
dustry itself. Telegram. . .
