INFLATING LAND VALUES.
Twenty-five hundred dollars for
little over half an acre of unculti
vated Clackamas county laudl This
is the mrlce paid by Sam Jackson,
editor of the Portland Journal last
week for 6G-100 of an acre known as
the old hatchery site.
The wealthy editor of the Portland
Journal needed the little tract as an
addition to his beautiful summer
home at Clear Creok, where he and
(his coterie of wealthy , Portlanuors
while away tneir weoic-enus uir
from itlhe busy whirl of city luo.
The purchase was nobody'e busi
ness exoent Mr. Jackson's, of course,
and yet the transaction calls for
some casual observations which may
or may not be pertinent.
Mr. Jackson is the self-proclaimed
cruardian of the Interests of the
struggling farmer, and the down
trodden laboring man, If nis euuoriai
page In the Journal is to be seriously
considered. He is the arch enemy of
the land 'grabber, the real estate
speculator, and tlhe ownor of idle
lands. It's a fight to a finish, with
tlhe Portland Journal sounding the
bugle, and oaiTylnig the banner at the
head of the parade. So reads the
Journal editorial page.
Now for the moment Editor Jack
son stens down and out of his editor
ial page and takes part in a little real
estate deal which lias .proven to be a
rather astounding transaction, when
lanxll vtnlluos In the Clear Creek coun
try are considered. Editor Jackson's
magnificent country villa is located
olbout six miles east of Oregon City
In what Is known as the Bailor's
bridge country. There are some
igood forma in the community, thoro
are some good lands, and some
mighty good people, but the combina
tion doles not warrant the estaoiisn-
mont of a precedent of fixing lanu
values at $3800 an acre.
No one but Mr. Jnckson would
have paid the pi-Ice, It 1b true, and It
is also true that had anyone but Mr.
Jackson gone Into such a speculation
nothing would have boon thought
about the mattor. Hoal honiosookors
men of Wie soil who want to pur
chase' forms, for agricultural pur
poses who have been finding solace
in tho Journal's campaign against
the land speculators, In tho vain hope
that farm buixll prices would bo
brought within Teach of the man of
limited capital, are now watching the
effect of Mr. Jackson's action. A
deal of this kind does not bring now
opportunities to the man of limited
moans. The effect is Indirect, but
nevertheless far-reaching.
Clackamas county lands are rich,
they are worth money and the man
Who sells is entitled to, and shouliU
receive a goou price a uiir price.
But $2500 for 60-100 of an aero of
uncultivated farm land Is too much
money altogether In Clackamas or
any othor county.
It Is to be hoped that Mr, JackHon
will find his new venture a paying In
vestment tluut will eventually renp
big dlvldoiHlu. Just what use will bo
mado of the Uttlo tract Is not known,
but thoro Is no ribuht that it was a

editor of the Portland Journal evi
dently wanted It, the owner was
hunted up, and the deal wus maae.
INST.
Showers of cigaietlus felt from
tho skies on the American lighters
d-ivinir the Germans out f the St.
Millie) salient. Th;s fact was an
nounced In e cubl'&riiin received
yesterday by William J. Mulligan,
chairman of the Knights of Colum
bus committee on war activities, at
the United war work campaign head
quarters. From American airplanes
20.000 packages of cigarettes were
dropped into the hands of infantry
men and artillerymen pressing for
ward in their victorious squeeze
which dislodged the enemy from tne
stronghold they hod heLd for uiore
than three years. tfaca oacxaga
was stamped "Compliments of the.
Knights of Columbus."
At the same time, cable rtlsnatchos
announce, Y. C. A. workers on
loot moved among tho soldiers,
handing out enxi'ea and cigar
ettes. On 'and and In the a:r I hove
fearless work: s kept pane with the
American .Iglttern iihjvmk lurwnrd
in the first offensive exclusively ex
ecuted by oar troops.
The airplane service for distribut
ing cigarettes to the soldiers, while
In battle was In progress was utiliz
ed as the ordinary foot and motor
methods of reaching the men in the
front lines were unavailable. H was
established! by Martin V. Merle, of
San Francisco, a K. of C secretary,
with the co-operation of an Ameri
can airplane unit. After the light,
soldiers related how pleasantly sur-
H-Jsed they hod been when cigarettes
dropped from on high. They declar
ed no service- in their behalf ever
pleased thn as much as this ultra
modern delivery of "smokes.
The Y. M. C. A. workers won new
friends at St. Mlliiel. One Red Tri
angle man, with a huge pack on his
Imck, moved forward with a certain
unit, after obtaining the permission
of the com man tier. At the first pause
in Uio shelter of a slight risa of
ground, he distributed a cako of
dhocolato and a pack of cigarettes
to each soklder until the supply was
exhausted. Ho replenished this sup
ply and. distributed moro, making
extra itriips before the main organiza
tion was able to bring up supplies in
larger quantities. Salvation Army
work ore also were busy with their
doughnuts and coffee throughout tho
St. Mihiol drive.
Mrs. G. Williams, who lias been
visiting Mrs. Warren Hurt for several
(ilajis, returned to her home In Salem
this morning.
