for a day or two. Yesterday a report
reached General Lawton by courier from
General Young that people knowing the
country think Aguinaldo' destination is
Dolose. With General Lawton' troop
in a position to move toward Bayom

with impenetrable mountains, peopled by
semi-savage tribea behind, Bayombong
would be a poor refuge.
It is reported that General Lawton is
moving northward from Tayud with In

General Young ha only a troop of cav

numbered 300. Aguinaldo ia luppoaeri

A Chance to Buy a Home Cheap.
Oregon Citv, Nov. 21, 1899.
Editor Enterprise: The tenderest as
sociations in life cluster about the word
home. None who can afford to buy a hom
should bo without one. A desirable
piece of city property which would make
an elegant home ia now offered at a great
bargain. It conBista of a tract of 30
acres in the heart of Minthorn addition
to Portland. The streets have an oeen
vacated and it can be sold either as city
or couutry property. The county assess
ment roll shows that it i worth three
times as much as the property surround
ing it. Anyone having any misgivings
on that point can have every doubt dis
pelled by calling on the County Board of
Equalization. One year it was asae
at t'-2.75 per acie when land just across
the county road was assessed at $20 per
erand other land leas than half a
mile away, was assessed at less than $13 1
per acre. The agiregate assessment tor
the past seven year of the whole tract,
of which this forms a part, is greater by
nvar tifiO.OOO than the average aggregate
assessment of the same amouui, uu
kind of land all around it for the same
period. This simply how what an ex
tremely choice location n w.
I need at i' actual cash value be
canae the law declare that It muat lie,
and I know that it and the aurrounding
propertie are eed in eqnal and
notable proportion because the law re
quire it. Only once In the past seven
year has there been any decline in th
value of the property, or an assessment
of It that approximated the asaeaament
of other property In the earae neighbor
hood. In 18'J7 the aaaeasor visited the
property just a Mr. Mullen, who live
on a farm just acros the county road
wa turning out hi cow. Traffic on the
street at the time wa very quiet. The
town clock had flopped. The city hall
waaoWuredhy an intervening clomp
of fir tree and the assessor mistook It
for agricultural property and astessed it
accordingly. Hi mistake wa perfectly
natural, a the recorded plat of the addi
tion wa in the court bouse mile away.
The county board will never allow aoch
a depressing circumstance to happen
again, and aa long the assessment roll
hold out no property for mile around
will compare with it in value. It i ar
ideal location. It offer the advantages
both of city and country. You have
only to itep acros a county road 60 feet
wide, and yoo are three mile out in tbo
country where land I assessed at only
$20 or $30 an acre and country milk and
butter and eggs and country air abound.
On the west Minthorn Spring ia but
mile away. The water from thi spring
used to be regularly dispensed at the
Marquam Grand. Many pretitr it to
Apollinaria. Thi ipnng is not so far
away but that the children can any
morning bring in a bocketfull before
breakfaat. The land is very rich. Fir
cones, goat and mortgages grow on it
without any cultivation, and aa it ia a
retired location, the leading crop of
Texas could be raised on it without dis
turbing the neighborhood in the least.
I planted a mortgage on it myself years
ago. It ha never bad any care, bnt I
never aw anything grow or do better.
In fixing a price upon thi magnificent
property I have taken the average as
sessment for the past seven years ex
cepting only the year when the assessor
made the mistake referred to above, and
am offering to dispose of all my right,
title and interest in It for just one naif,
that assessment. The purchaser can al
so haye the mortgage or I will take it
just a he desire. Nothing of that kind
shall interfere with a trade. I can stand
the mortgage bnt I am mortally afraid of
the assessor. Half the average assess
ment may seem a high price, but thai
Board of Equalisation can explain that
way. They will argue the proposition
with you in dead earnest and never
crack a smile and your ideas of the value
of the land will grow at every visit. Pro
ceeds of the sale will be devoted to
charity after payment baa been made to
a number of creditors who have prior
liens. C B. Moore?.
