When you find a business
man or an Institution who is
opposed lo the coming of the
Oregon Trunk, you find one
who is afraid of competition.
He believes in small sales
and large profits. Instead of
large sales nnd small pro
fits. The greater the volume
of business the lower tho
price at which goods can be
sold und the cheaper you
can buy what you need. Thai
is why you should. In Jus
tice to yourself, und is u
matter ot rulr play, spend
your money with thov In
stitutions that are support
ing the coining of the Ore
gon Trunk.
