HERE FOR YOUNG
An uddresa recently rnado hisfore
tlie Vnune Men's C'lirintUu axeouia
tion of Portland by Tom Kichardxon
4a rejili'te with wiwlom and cogent
reasons why the young man should
locate in the Northwest. The area

Firtit of all, the mont importaut rea
son why young men and young women
shunld soik this portion of the United
States as a permanent home is on ao
count of what I believe to be the most
invigorating moderate climate any
whore in the world, 1 base this
somewhat unou my personal experi
ouoo. for when 1 came here Home 20
months ago 1 wan pretty well UUed
with mularia arid tipped the sealos at
; 133 pounds Hinoe my arrival 1 have
been 'unite bun, and have spent
great many hoars at my desk, without
the privilege of taking as ruuou out
door exercise as 1 would have liked,
still 1 now weigh a littlo over 1UU
pounds. My health approaches per
fection, mill my appetite is all that 1
conld auk. My children, who were
jitalvM of the (lull (Jotiht country,
and tvnical children of that climate,
are today as rosy-cheeked as if Ore-
eon born, and Mrs. liichurdson has
been us much bonellttod as the chil
dren and myself. Climate is the most
important Item to every man, woman
and child in selecting a permanent
home. While it Is not, by any menus,
all the difference between heaven and
perdition, the Hiblogives it first place
in describing the joys or the one ami
tho terrors of the other.
Thero is no place whore the soil
produces more bountiful returns,
whore there is a greater abundance of
pure w ter, and with uu acceptable
climate, good soil and pure water the
butt le of life is more than mill won,
Tho best minds of tho commercial
, world Hgreo that there Into be an
enormous development iu the trade
of the Paul lie, mid thero are mora op
portunities for river transportation
throughout the section of which Port
land is the metropolis than iu any
otlior portion of the Uuitod States.
The very fact that rail transportation
i limited and that tho immediate fu
ture UHSiiros tremendous activity iu
this most Important item of material
development presents to many practi
cal opportunities for young men
throughout tie Northwest that it
seems iiunocessnry to iiume them.
Pioforo heoomiug specilic, let's say
that when we mention "young men"
wo mean capable young men, young
meu of good uioruls and good courage,
young men who have confidence in
themselves and iu their city, county,
state and country, young men who
are willing to do objectiouablo work
If It is honest, while waiting for an
opportunity to get something better.
This great Pacific Northwest coun
try is the home ol the greatest availa
ble timber supply in tho world, and
that practical, hard headed, self-made
' man, James J. Hill, president of the
(Jreat Northern railroad, which is
now building Into Portland In con
nection with tho Northern Pacific,
says that from a tin III j standpoint
one acre of good timber is oqual to
, oto hundred and eighty ucrel of
wheat. That is a startling proposi
tion that the crop of timber which
(Jail gave us mi one acre of this fer
tile Northwiiht will furnish as much
freight from one crop as will n fertile
acre sown iu wheat, the woild's great
est cereal, iu m) years, and Mr. llill
lu making this stataiuuut has told the
commercial and tluuucinl world why
it Is that tho gro.it railroads are seek
ing an outlet to the Pncillo and the
Orient with a view of helping handle
this timber before the great forests of
the Northwest are devastated.
The opportunities which will come
from the introduction of electricity
to universal transportation and 'he
many factories to be built olfers to
the young man many opportunities to
accumulate millions. I have a young
friend at Nowberg, soil of a Quaker
family, who makes a good living out
of an oleoma plant in that village. It
is possible for him to make money out
of this plant because he uses every
lossiblo common-seuso eouuomv.
liming the saw dust from one of
tho saw mills for fuel, And such op
portunities as these present theiu
in Portland from February 10th,
lOUii, until November 21 l'M, there
were issued by authority of the city
government H8i building pormits.
and the month from October Ki to
November Hi beat the record, show
ing '2H7 permits or more than 10 for
every business day in tho mouth. 1
mention this especially as it followe I
immediately alter the close of the ex
position, when so many doubters had
predicted a slump, and this particular
110 days was vital to Portland for the
reason that many people throughout
the entire o.uutlry were watching her
with a groat deal moro attention than

true with rogan to tho production
of noultry. Then there are opportu

cattle and sheep business, in many
departments of mercantile trade, whilo
the industrial field is so rich in its

Spirits have been getting in their
work at Wenrtchee, where fact, ro
mance and spiiitualism are so inter
woven iu a case as to be almost in
credible unless there was something
to substantiate the fact; but W. h.
liartlett and M. O. lilack have sub
stantial proof in the shape of a bottle
of gold to prove that the find they
hav made is genuine. These two
men. actinu on the advice of a spirit
ualistia medium of Portland, have
found a lo e long hidden in the
mountains, and which was discovered
nearly 60 veari bso by Mr. liartlott's
The liattlctt family are all spiritual
ists, and a short tine ago Mr. Part
lott's grandfather, dead for nearly 50
rears, sent word to mm tnrougn a
medium to find the mine, which would
make him independently rich, and
gave minute directions of the loca
tion. He was told to select ra. u.
lilack, a second band dealer of Wen-
atcbee, as bis companion, macs: con
sented to no and tbey made the trip.
While they will not tell the location
of the find, they eay it is nod beyond
belief and that lbs told is practically
virgin. To prove it they exhibit a
bottle filled with metal which tests
have proven to be gold.
They state it was found in rough
and mountainous region and the ledge
is of grey quartz, literally tilled with
gold. Small pieces were broken oft
and pounded up In a f ying pan
which they had with them, i rom
this they picked stiougb chunks of
gold out with their ringers to fill the
bottle. Should the ledge prove s
rich as the samples, a man could go
into tbe mountains with a mortar and
gold pan and in a week be independ
ently rich. Tbey state the trip fs
perilous now, but that in the spring
they will return and develop the find.
The find Is not as marvelous as tbe
manner iu which the mine was locat
ed. 1). E. Ingulls, Mr. liartlett '
grandfather, was a plo eer prospectcr
and in 1HoT drifted Into locution if
Wenatohee with eight others from tho
California gold fields. While alone
one day be made a find In tbe moun
tains near Wenatchee that he consid
ered tbe greatest discovery of bis life.
lo tbe members of bis family be con
fided bis secret and tbey have kept it
as an heirloom. He went into tbe
mountains one day and was murdered
by a companlon Jack Knott. Hi
body is buried up the Columbiu,
about two and onehalf miles from
Wenatchee. Last summer the medium
communicated tbe messago to Mr,
liartlett's grandfather and lilack was
selected to go along. Although the
trip was a perilous one, the directions
were so minutely given that the men
went directly to tile spot.
Another peculiar fHCt is that tbe
family thought lngals' body was bur-
ted In Southern Oregon, until a med
ium last summer told wheie the body
would be found, and upon investiga
tion the spot where ho was buried was
exactly located. Exchange.
