FOR'BUILDING AND BUSINESS
It would' be difficult to find a better
illustration of the courage--determination
business foresight and rapidity of execu
tion so characteristic of the people of
this great northwest, than is found in the
life and progress at North Dalles. The
entire work is only in its infancy, hardlj

ever, enough has been done or put under
way to convince the most skeptical that
the founders of this enterprise are in
earnest and will establish here this com
ing year a prosperous city. It is only in
the days of modern enterprises when
men can be found who are prompt in
the execution of larsfe undertakings that
towns and cities are built up, and people

Geographically situated North Dalles

There is tributary to it not less than
5)000 square miles of valuable farming
land which will not remain longer with
out railway connections. And while it
may be admitted that the water ways do
not do away with the necessity for'rail
roads to the full and complete develop
ment of this country, yet the increase in
the volume of business done on these
rivers fully proves that neither does the
building of railroads do away with the
use of water ways nor render them a less
mighty factor iii its general growth and
prosperity. But the two go hand in

traffic of these inland empires may be
Nature has done her work to perfec
tion, nothing is needed to fill out the
picture, but the skill and thrift of an
industrious and intelligent community to
make this portion of our state an assured
success. The fact that the U. S. govern
ment is awake to the importance of
opening up the Columbia river for navi
gation by large appropriations, would
seem to indicate the tact that they expect
these thousands of acres of uncultivated
lands which line the banks of the Colum
bia river for hundreds of miles to become
settled by thrifty farmers.
If you" will study the work laid out
by the government "yon will soon be con
vinced that North Dalles will secure all

industry is not added to the one at
North !Dalles and put on a solid financial
It is now an assured fact that one of
the largest tanneries west of the Miss
issippi river will be put up by eastern
capital, this enterprise alone would em
ploy a large force of men. The next
thirty davs will make business very
lively at North Dalles. During the last
weeli something like 110 lots were sold or
engaged, many of them for business and
building purposes and those by men who
have a keen eye to the immediate pros
pects for advancement. The fact that a
trade was consumated last week across
the river for over $58,000 adds one more
link in its future.
When we say that North Dalles will be
a busy center of trade and that it will
continue to grow rapidly, we feel confi
dent that we are not overstepping the
bounds of probable reason. Towns are
built up nowadays as if by magic, and
we hardly know where the capital came
from, sufficient that it is always ready
when opportunities exist. Talking
lately at Spokane Falls with a gentleman
who "lived some miles north of the city
and who had not visited the Falls for the
last three years, he said to me, "I can
not understand this city. I see before
me blocks presenting a solid front seven
stories high. I cannot see who is to
occupy them, where the business is to
come from, surelj" capital must le wild.
These lots that are now worth $50,000 I
could have had my choice of at $300 only
four years ago."" I said to my friend,
why "did you not buy? Did "you not
know that the water power of Spokane
Falls would build up a city? Did you
not know that there was" millions of
acres of land tributary to it? Could you
not take the map of this country and
trace out canyons and passes which
would compel railroads to center there?
"No," he said "I was not a believer in
the future of this country. I lacked
confidence. I was what-if now called a
