Portland, Oregon, June 1 -October 15, 1905
See the Fair
$7,000,000 have been spent to make the exposition entertaining and instructive. The
largest searchlight in existence is to be installed on the summit of Mount Hood. The
Forestry building is the second largest log building in the world. Particular attention
is to be given to the method of manufacture rather than the exhibition of the finished
product. Magnificent view of the mountains from the exposition grounds.
See the Country
Portland was founded in 1845. During the sixty years just passed a wilderness has been
transformed into a mighty empire. The region traversed by the Northern Pacific Rail
way between St. Paul and the Pacific Coast is one of the most productive in the world.
Census reports show that this section leads the United States in the production of iron
ore, copper, lead, sheep and wool, flaxseed and the canning of fish. One-third of the
standing timber of the country is found in Washington, Oregon and California, the two
first named states being entered by the Northern Pacific Railway.
See Yellowstone Park
The geological wonders: geysers—large and small, gentle and uproarious, awe inspiring
and amusing; peculiar formations—natural glass cliff, mud volcanoes, petrified forests,
paint pots, the colored terraces. Scenery—many magnificent vistas, the Three Tetons
from Shoshone Point, view over the water at Yellowstone Lake Hotel,the glorious Grand
Canon. The roads are kept free from dust, hotels are as fine as any in the country
and transportation facilities are as good as government supervision can make them.
