With this little book n>e present to the public some facts pertaining to the city that will prove useful as a reference, also the program of events of the Second Annual Rose Festival and other useful information and a list of the principal Hotels and Rooming Houses.
For some of the matter contained in the pub't-cation we are indebted to the "Chamber of Commerce Bulletin, "The Rose City Magazine," "The Portland Guide Book' and Various other reliable sources and thus present our compilation to the public, tourist and those who have an opportunity of visiting the city during the Rose Festival.
lie call the attention of the public to the advertisers in this book, they are especially reliable in their respective lines.
In adopting the phrase "Greater Portland— she expands while others grow," we have tried to show our city's pre-eminence; that she has reached the summit of her efforts and is now branching out and literally expanding her industries, boundaries, enterprizes, but above all her broad-minded, open-handed spirit of hospitality which is resounding to her credit all over the earth.

Bernard Mulrine In "The Western Lady"
It blooms in tranquil and calm repose
No fairer vision eye can view, The dainty, sweet and fragrant rose;
Brightest flower that ever grew.
Wet with the silvery sparkling dew, It wafts a fragrance rich and rare;
Each petal gay with lovely hue,
Sheds perfume thru the morning air.
O'er head the sun is shining bright.
All nature thrills, no voice seems sad 'Midst scenes of verdure and of light
Blooms the Rose, the world is glad.
The Rose Festival
Portland, the prosperous city of the Northwest, has ever been modest in crying her manifold advantages to the world, but let it be said with no attempt at exaggeration that no municipality in this broad country is more blessed than Portland. Commercial, financial and industrial wealth abound, for the region of fertile country from which the city draws, possesses a diversity of natural resources. The inhabitant of the State of Oregon is not compelled to follow one vocation as a means of livelihood, as obtains in many commonwealths. Our broad rivers are productive of wealth; our forests contain the finest timber; our mining prospects are second to none; our orchard lands grow the choicest fruits and our agricultural tracts are splendidly productive. Oregon's cattle,
stock raising and dairy interests are now of national repute.
Portland, with her 200,000 people, is the center—the market place. It is also a gateway to every kind of commerce on the globe.
The approaching Rose Festival will demonstrate another admirable characteristic of this God-benefitted country. It will convince tens of thousands of visitors that Portland and vicinity rests on beds of flowers. So let us not be timid in proving to all that nowhere under the sun is there a more acceptable place for active men and women than in Portland and Oregon.
The second annual ^Rose Festival means much to the state and city, showing the possibilities in wealth of attractions and beauty of climate and scenery.
