"We make it a point to leave on schedule time regardless of the num ber of passengers on hand," said Mr. 8hepr.rd. On a number of oc casions it lias cost us $12 to carry one passenger for $1.10 from Port land to St. Helens, but I have learn ed that in the long run It has paid not to deviato from our regular schodule. "I believe that mere 19 a new field for development from Portland lo Astoria and we hope to build up a business which will add one more strong link between Portland and tha sea.

In the Portland to Astoria run no pas senger will between the Rose City and St. Hetpne-ar vrer will continen our run between these two points. Our headquarters in Portland will be at the St. Charles Hotel." As torian.
