Abstract
Several newspapers provided both information and advise to the citizens of Portland and Oregon during the financial crisis of 1907. One of the tasks taken up by the newspapers was to explain the circumstances and origins of the credit and cash shortages in Oregon, a second was to provide a projection for the course that events would take, and a third was to editorialize. A careful reading of the articles and editorials of <em>The Oregonian, The Daily News</em>, and <em>The Oregon Journal</em> show distinct perspectives aligned with opposing political and economic interests.
