"Wo have on hand 13 new buildings,
come of which wo are completing and
others which wo aro Just starting. I
didn't think we had so many until I
camo to count them up. We have not
been running after building contracts.
They are comlns In as fast as we want
them. I never saw a better outlook for
building than at present. Some people
are waiting for cheaper material and
cheaper labor, but neither will probably
be had this year. And yet with all this
tho year 1903 opens with most excellent
This was the remark of William Stokes,
a contractor, who built some 50 houses
last year. During January many new
houses were started in spite of the un
favorable weather all over the East Side.
In Central East Portland vacant lots are
being covered with handsome residences.
On East Eleventh and East Ankcny
streets and near-by blocks, 17 houses are
under construction, the most expensive
of which Is that of E. 3L Sargent, which
will cost over tVXO. The others average
$1700 each and over. These buildings, with
the improvements which go with them,
represent an outlay of fully $30,000, and all
on three blocks. Dr. A. W. Moore's resi
dence, on East Twelfth and East Mor
rison streets, costing $3000, Is being com
pleted. It Is an attractive residence,
built along plain lines.
J. S. Morgan has started an attractive
residence on East Sixteenth and Schuyler
street which will cost $3000. G. B.
Cellars has laid the foundation for
a $1300 dwelling on East Eleventh, between
Halsey and .Skldmorp streets. II. H.
Austin will build a $3000 residence on East
Fourteenth, between Tillamook and
Thompson streets. Mrs. Llda B. Mc
Kltrick Is building a two-story cottage,
costing $2500, on East Ninth and East
Halsey streets. A. L. Helmnn will build
a two-story dwelling on Montana avenue,
between Walnut and Kllllngsworth ave
nues, which will cost $2000. W. H. Stev
ens is building a cottage on East Ninth
and Alberta streets, costing $1200. Per
haps the finest dwelling' which is being
finished on the East Side Is that F. S.
Doernbecher, manager of the Doernbecher
Factory Company. It is located' In Irv
Ington. It will cost $18,000, and the Inside
is being finished in oak In a very hand
some style. It will be several weeks be-.
fore it will be completed and ready for
occupancy. In the neighborhood of Mr.
Doembecher's dwelling are a number of
handsome homes costing from $3000 up
wjd. Bnlldlnc Toivard Colnmbln River.
It Is In the Northeast and North, along
either sldo of Union avenue, that there
has been and is a building boom in the
true sense. Between Union and Williams
avenues, out to Piedmont, about 50 new
houses of a good class are under con
struction. East of Union avenue there
are perhaps 100 new louses ranging in
cost from $500 to $3000 being erected. In
1902 about 230 dwellings were put up In
So rapid has been the growth that the
Highland schoolhouse has been swamped
with the Increase. "When this building
was moved from Alblna Homestead to
Highland there were hardly pupils enough
to fill two rooms. Now all four rooms
are filled, some of the rooms being occu
pied by 60 and more pupils. A half room
has been fitted up in the hallway and
there are three portable extra rooms on
the school grounds. Another classroom
Is being fitted up in the basement to tide
over till vacation, when the Board of
Education will erect 12 rooms beside the
four of the present building. This will pro
vide a lG-room building, none too large
for that portion of the district. Perhaps
a 20-room building may be erected. In
view of the proposed opening of tne Simon
tract east of Highland and the construc
tion of a branch line from the Portland
Railway Company a mile in that direc
tion. Northward through Woodlawn it
Is proposed to Improve Union avenue,
which has been made SO feet wide from Al
berta street. This will still more stimulate
building In that direction. Down on the
Peninsula It Is predicted that there will
be 200 dwellings put up this year. Many
are now under construction. Electric car
facilities have given an Impetus to build
ing operations there.
Toward Mount Tabor.
Along Hawthorne avenue some very
fine dwellings are being put up, and also
at Sunnyslde. On the wst slope of
Mount Tabor building Is slow owing to
the high price that lots arc held at. Still
the district between Sunnyslde and West
avenue is steadily filling up. West ave
nue is now lined with handsome dwellings
between the Base Line and the Section
roads. On the north. In Center Addition.
along the North Mount Tabor Rallwav
and extending to Gravel Hill, the tops of
new cottages may be seen among the
small fir trees. Standing on tho toD of
Mount Tabor, one can, at a glance, get a
perfect conception of the growth and ex
tent of Portland up and down the Will
F. E. Beach. In an address before the
Sellwood Board of Trade a year ago, said
he expected to live long enough to see
Portland extending from Milwaukle solidly
to the Columbia River. His prediction Is
almost fulfilled now, for new buildings
can now be seen springing up between
these two point, a distance of 10 and II
miles, taking in St. Johns. One can count
' the roofs' of nearly 1000 new residences
between tho south line of Sellwood to St.
jonns and woodlawn, besides the founda
lions of many more that are startlnc.
Between Sellwood and Milwaukle the
gap will be filled this year by the pur
chases of the Lambert tract. This tract
has been laid oft In five-acre tracts and
about 15 elegant dwellings are to bo put
up there this year. The brush space be
tween Holgate street and Sellwood is
rapdlly being cleared and dwellings are
going up rapidly, and soon the gap will be
ciosea up aiong tne Willamette River.
East of Mount Tabor the building area
exienas a mile ana a nail to Russellvllle,
Between the Section and Barr roads. Out
side this area buildings are belnir erected
on .farms. At Russellvllle the school has
ISO pupils, and the directors will erect 'a
six-room building costing $3000 to meet the
wonaeriui growth of this suburb. At
South Mount Tabor the schoolhous in
already crowded, and the directors are
ngunng on an addition. Still further to
the southeast Is Lents, -where a four-room
Ecnoomouse is Deing nnished. The Wood'
stock schoolhouse is filling ud and dwell
lngs are going up eastward through Tre
mont to .siount scott.
Notwithstanding the great number of
dwellings that were erected In 1902 between
the Willamette River and Russellvllle
east about seven miles, and between the
south line of Sellwood and the Columbia
River, it is bard today to find a good
house for rent, either close in or In the
most remote subuarbs. It Is reported at
Sellwood and Monta villa and Woodlawn
that houses for rent -are scarce as hens'
teeth, and people aro constantly looking
Large Manufacturing Enterprises;
Tho larger enterprises are the Portland
Woolen Mills, the Eastlde Sawmill Com
pany, the new plant of the Standard Box
factor, the electric sawmill at St. Johns,
the Nottingham warehouse and the pros
pective sawdust stove factory at Monta-
lua. The Woolen Mills Company Is
completing an extensive addition to Its
plant at Sellwood by which It will be
able to nearly double Its capacity. It Is
proper also to mention In this connec
tion, the proposed clothing factory, which
Charles Coopey is working up, to be
erected near the woolen mills and to be
operated in connection with It, using Its
output to some extent. Nearly double
the number of skilled hands will be cm-
ployed in the woolen mills on completion
of the Improvements.
At the foot of Spokane avenue the new
sawmill buildings are being put up. The
main building will be 200x10, besides
which there will be dryhouses and lum
ber buildings. At the foot of East Pine
street the company owns a block which

Include a sawmill. At Montavilla there
are good prospects that a large stove
factory will bo erected. A committee has
the matter in hand and is conducting ne
gotiations with representatives of a large
firm. Ground has already been secured
for this factory and It Is expected that
there will be some substantial develop
ments before many weeks. S

F. R. Neale expressed the opinion that
the Portland G. A. R. ought to spare no
effort! for the state encampments. He
approved the suggestions of Comrade Mc
Devltt for a banquet, reception, parade
and entertainment It would be neces
sary to appoint efficient committee. Mr.
Neale thought that It would be well to
organize at once and get to work on the
Chairman Calkins said: "It has been 16
years since the encampment was held in
Portland. Since then we have been en
tertained in smaller towns of Oregon In
a most hospitable manner. We have
always been given a public reception. We
must show our appreciation of the treat
ment we have received. We can get the
Mayor to make the address of welcome at
the public reception. There will be music
to be paid for. It will be necewsary to
secure halls for meetings of the encamp
ment, the Women's Relief Corps and the
Ladles of the G. A. R. We should give
a banquet. I havo thought of the Ex
position building for the reception. Now
as to the cost, I think we shall need at
least $300 to carry out this programme."
After some further discussion as to the
scope of the entertainment of the stato
encampment, on motio'h of Mr. McDevitt
the meeting adjourned till next Sunday
afternoon at 3 o'clock, owing to the slim
attendance of committeemen, there being
but 12 out of the 20 appointed, present. At
that time the organization will be per
fected by the election of a president, vice
president, secretary and trenmrer. and
tho appointment of several committees.

contemplating the erection of a brick

erty recommended by Postmaster A. B.

The City & Suburban Railway Company
Is building a loop across the trestle that
now ppans Sullivan's gulch northward on
East Twenty-eighth street, to a connection
with the Irvlngton line, which now ends
at East Twenty-fourth and Tillamook

the Willamette River to Sellwood and

capture this plant. It will cover at
least 10 acres -wherever It is located. The
great fill at the terminal dock will be un
dertaken as soon as a connecting line up

Seeking Railway Connection.
Residents east and south of Mount
Tabor are working for railway connection
with Portland. They are negotiating to
get the Mount Tabor branch extended
down the east slope of Mount Tabor, and
also to get the Montavilla branch to swing
around the east and south side of Mount
Tabor to a connection with the Richmond
branch. There have been also some ne
gotiations with the Oregon Water Power
& Railway Company to extend Us Haw
thorne-avenue line eastward about two
miles. It has secured a right-of-way to
the reservoir; but no further. A right-of-way
is assured the City & Suburban Rail
way for the Montavilla branch' to the
Grange Hall, but there Is some difficulty
In getting from there to a connection with
the Richmond branch, which will probably
be overcome before long.
Albert NIblln Is working on a project to
get the Section Line widened to SO feet
from the Grange Hall through to Gresham,
and Is making good progress. His Idea lr
to get the road widened, and give one side
for a car track to any company which
will build through to Gresham. It Is
considered almost certain that this dis
trict east and south of Mount Tabor will
have railway connection with Portland at
leaet within a year. The companies are
too busy with Portland Improvements to
take up outside extensions at present.

JOINT COMSltTTED MEETS.
Promise That Comlntr Encampment
Shall Be Larger Than Usual.
At a meeting yesterday of Joint com
mittees from all the G. A. R. posts In the
city, appointed to make arrangements for
the state encampment which will be held
In Portland next June, It was decided
unanimously that every possible effort
should be put forth to make It the largest
gathering of members of the Grand Army
of the Republic ever held In the state. G.
C Calkins called the committee together.
and on motion, was elected temporary
chairman. After appointing a temporary
secretary Mr. Calkins made a short state
ment of the situation confronting the
Portland posts. It was well, he remarked.
to start preparations early on account ot
the amount of work to be done.
T. B. McDevitt said that It behooved the
Portland posts to make the encampment

Rev. F. Peacock has been obtained to
supply the pulpit of theMlsslsslppt-Avenue
Congregational Church, Alblna, until a
regular pastor shall have been called. A
call was extended Mr. Peacock, but he
could not accept, as he is studying to be
come a medical missionary. The official
board has several ministers In view, and
expect to extend a call before long. It
Is a good pastorate. M. EL Thompson, of
the board, says the church has no debts

THE SENATORIAL TRUST.
More Autocratic and Tenacious Than
the Ciar of Russia. (
PORTLAND, Feb. 7. (To the Editor.)
The Oregon Legislature and other Legis
latures have been frequently on record
memorializing Congress to propose an
amendment to the United States Consti
tution providing for the elections of Sen
ators by direct vote of the people. Our
Legislature passed such a resolution on
January 27. 1903 (S. J. M. 6).
The intentions of these Legislatures la
bona fide and most excellent In purpose,
but It will only be accomplished when
water runs up hill, carrying with It the
water-logged oligarchy which has been
and Is now the real overshadowing power.
ruUng this country with a tighter grip
than the English House of Lords ever had
or assumed. The power of this close Sen
ate corporation exceeds that of any trust
in the country. It can and It does dic
tate a Government policy and distribution
of offices, before all of which even so
strenuous and energetic a President as
Theodore Roosevelt must humbly bow. It
can and does rule the House of Represen
tatives and busy Itself with the election
of members of that house. It is more au
tocratic and tenacious of Its so-called
privileges and prerogatives than the Czar
of Russia. If It were not so. ana ine aeu
nt felt secure of Its dace In the hearts
of the people, it would gladly and quickly
ra before the country on this amendment
nnrl thus secure comnlete vindication. It
has had the opportunity time and again,
but the Legislative business of every state
has been and continues to be clogged by
the Senatorial matter, and the blame
therefor must be laid wholly at the door
I of the United States Senate, for there It
belongs. Worse tnmgs may De saia aoaui
it than the Interruption .of business, in
the words of Cicero, O tempo ra. o mores:
There are two ways to amend tne con
stitution, viz: First, two-thirds of both
houses of Congress must propose an
amendment: second, the Legislatures of
two-thirds of the several states must ap
ply to call a Constitutional Convention
for the purpose.
In either case, three-fourths of the
states must thereafter ratify tho amend
ments, either by their Legislatures or by
conventions called for the purpose.
Thus It readily appears why the Senate
can continually Ignore these memorials.
and even Ignore a resolution of the House
of Representatives to the same effect. It
deems itself Impregnable In Its position.
strong as Gibraltar Is supposed to be.
The several Legislatures are now in ses
sion. If they wish tp do something which
will mean real business to the mind of the
average Senator, there Is but one way.
and it Is clearly pointed out. Let them
apply for a Constitutional Convention.
The Senate cannot stop this, and by the
time half of the states have done so the
Senate will grow remarkably wise and
Bee fit to propose the amendment the peo
ple want and will have In the end. There
Is no better time or place to start such a
movement than right now and In the Leg
islatures of the states of the great West.
That the people will heartily approve it
and applaud the efforts so directed there
can hardly be the least doubt.
