THE MORNING OREGONIAN, MONDAY. FEBRUARY 9, 1903. EAST SIDE GROWING Wonderful Progress in Build ing Operations This Year. POPULAR DEMAND FOR HOUSES Prospective Extension of . Many Street-Car Linen Causes Very Ilapld InereaNc In Xnmlicr o Residences Erected. "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 prospects." 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 this district. 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 amette River. 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 lor them. 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 It will cover with a dock for lumber ana sales yard. This mill will cut an average of 73,000 feet of lumber per day for the local business. At the foot of East Ankeny street. where several streets have been vacated. the Standard Box Factory will put up the largest and most extensive box fac tory in the Northwest, This plant will 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 In the matter of railway extensions and encampments have been held heretofore, wo have bcn well treated. We must have some money to Jo thW 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 details. 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. It Is desired that every member ap- THEGLORY HAS DEPARTED EXPOSITION" DCILDIXG IS LEASED FOR LIVERY STABLE PURPOSES.

The buildings now on the ground will be moved to Thirteenth and Kearney streets, where Mr. Slgglln owns . other property. It Is understood that Henry Wemme, who owns a quarter-block at the louthtnst corner of Seventh and Oak, is contemplating the erection of a brick structurp on that site. This is the prop erty recommended by Postmaster A. B. Croasman as the second best site for the temporary postofflce. Mr. Croasman de cided that it was too far from the busi ness center, and reported in favor of the northeast corner of Park and Alder streets. Real Estate.

Hon II RESIDENCE OF F. A. ICJAPP OX KEARNEY STREET, NEAR NORTH TWENTY-FOURTH. Improvement there Is much In progress. 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 streets. This company has already dis tributed large rails along Grand avenue, between East Harrison and East Ankeny etreets, and will shortly replace the light rails. The Portland Company will commence on Its new East Side system In the early Spring, which Includes lines on Russell street and Maryland avenue, and probably further down the peninsula toward St. Johns. It has other branchen to build, and according to Its franchise, must com mence work within six months after pass age of Its ordinance. The Oregon Water Power & Railway Company la pushing construction on Its branch that passes up the Willamette River to Sellwood and Lents. Another unsettled thing Is the lo cation of the carshops and carbarn for this company. Sellwood still hopes to 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 the river Is completed. This company has secured Its franchise to build on East Water to East Pine street, where the lum-tr yard of the East Side Lumber Company will be located, and where the new box factory will be built. It Is building a trestle across Stephens Slough. now two-thirds nnlsned. ana will soon oe building through Inman, Poulsen's lumber-yard and up the Willamette River. 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. pointed on committees from tho should bo present at that meeting. posts HARRY ANTONISEX DEAD. Had Dcen n Resident of South Mount Tabor for Thirty Years. Harry Antonlsen, a prominent farmer living. In the South Mount Tabor district, died Saturday evening at his home after a ions Illness. He -was born In Norway, October 6, 1852, and came to the United States in 1872. A year afterwards he ar rived In Oregon and made his home In South Mount Tabor, where he lived ever since. Mr. Antonlsen has always been a public spirited and progressive citizen of the community. For the past 15 years he had been an active member of Evening Star Grange No. 27. Patrons of Husbandry, and for ten years was a member of Tabor Lodge. Ancient Order United Workmen. For nine years he was a member of the Board of Education of the South Mount Tabor School, and was a director at his death. He will be greatly missed by hi? neighbors, who honored and respected him. A wife and five children survive him. The funeral will be held from Mult nomah Hall, at the corner of the Section Line and Oregon City roads, tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. George Learn, pastor of Mount Tabor Baptist Church, will conduct the sen-Ices In the hall. At the Interment, which will be In Mult nomah cemetery, the Patrons of Hus bandry and United Workmen will conduct funeral rites according to the laws of the orders. Friends ot the family aro in vited to attend the services. 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 full of Interest. "They owe It to them selves, ho said, "to do this. We should have a banquet, reception and parade. In the small towns in the state, where the FHIf Vacancy Temporarily. 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 and !s In a very prosperous condition. "We want a strong man here, he said, ' and we havo good reason to think that we will get tho one we are after." East Side Notes. Rev. J. J. Dalton, D. V., who has Just retired from the pastorate ot the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, has closed 16 years of constant service, and will now take a rest. Rev. J. J. Staub, pastor of tho Sunny slde Congregational Church, delivered an eloquent sermon on Abraham Lincoln last night, in view of his approaching birthday, February 12. The steam motors formerly used on the SL Johns Railway have been sold to log ging companies, and have been shipped. to their destination. They were in service nearly 12 years on the peninsula. The regular meeting ot the East Twen ty-elghth-Street Improvement Associa tion, which should take place this even ing, has been postponed on account of the committees being unable to meet with the different boards and because most of the officers are out of town. Therefore the next meeting of the association will bo held February 23, In the Mission-House, Twenty-eighth and East Gllsan streets. The February Issue of the Northwestern Churchman, of the Eplsconal Church, has appeared. It is packed full of Information concerning the Episcopal church ot the diocese ot Oregon. On the first pace Is a picture of Rev. Alexander Corbett, rector of St. Stephens Church, Baker City, with a biographical sketch. Also a picture of tne new Mission Church building at Wood itock appears. C L. Parker, of Alblna, is caiior or tne magazine.

Drlscoll & Co.. the liverymen, of Fifth and Pine streets, have been forced to seek a new location for their stable. through the purchase of the-property by the Marshall-Wells Company, and have completed negotiations with Russell & Blyth, tho owners of the Exposition building, tor tho use of a part of tho east halt Tho space required for expo sition purposes remains almost the same. and tho presence of the stable will never be noticed by the thousands that throng the big building when It Is opened to the public. An entrance for the use of the Uvery company will be cut through from Nine- teeth street, and the carriages, which will be kept on the ground floor, will be run directly from the building into that street. Carriages only win be kept on the main floor, for the horses' quarters will be established below the street level. As this end of the Exposition building stands In a deep gulch, the space below the street has been almost useless, but can now be utilized. Thick partltians will be put In between the stable and the rest ot the building, and no inconvenience Is expected to arise from the presence of the horses. The livery cctnpany has rented a space of 200xl feet on the main floor. where the vehicles will be placed, while 200xio feet has been secured below the street level. The whole width ot the building, from Washington street to the back of the big structure, adjoining the Multnomah Field, will therefore be used by the liverymen. Thomas Gray, a mem ber of the Arm. said on Saturday that patrons would be given free seats to wit ness "the football games on the famous field. The move of the Drlscoll Company from a location far down town to Nineteenth street Is another example of the general movement away from the river. StlU an other example, and one connected with the same business. Is the move of tho United Carriage Company to its new leased building now under construction at the nortnnest corner ot Eleventh and Morrison streets. It also Indicates general movement all over the city, for the Marshall-Wells Company, the whole sale hardware dealers, will come from East Morrison street to the four-story brick building soon to be erected for their use on tho north side of Pine, between Fourth and Fifth streets, while the Drls coll Company, one of tho former occu pants of thd property, seeks a new loca tlon at Nineteenth and Washington streets In a building that was not designed for business ot that class. The quarter block at the northeast cor ner of Third and Pine streets formerly owned by the Macleay Estate Company, has been parceled out among three new owners during the past ten days. The agents, Russell & Blyth, secured $10,00? for the property, which Is opposite the north end of the "Worcester building. Mrs. Edith 'M. Grant, of San Francisco, a member of the Macleay family, was the largest purchaser, taking the corner lot for $23,000. W. J. Hawkins and Daniel Marx divided the inside lot between them, each buying a strip 25x100 feet. P.- 11, Blyth, one of the agents, In speaking of the "deal, said that they had- also sold sevtn residences, amounting to 5,000, within the past few days. Architects are-busy Just now preparing plans for new buildings, both for rest dences and business blocks. The plans for the three-story brick warehouse on Irving street, between Ninth, and Tenth streets, to be erected by D. C O'Reilly for Heywood Bros. & Wakefield, hav been completed, and the same architect is at work on the design for the three story brick of J. W. Cook, on First, near Pino. Charles Slgglln will build a large frame structure on ' his quarter-block at the northwest corner of Sixth and Glisan streets. This will conform to the styl of the other buildings recently put up on North Sixth street, for the lower floor will Mclntyre. Truman McAdow, Rush McBrlde, Miss Jessie McClure.

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. ROBERT -C. WRIGHT, 1003, none; possible sunshine February 10 hours.

ONE WEEK xPostnm Coffee Remade the Dominic In a Week. Where a person has no troubles ex cepting those caused by coffee,. Postum Food Coffee it faitniuuy useu win usu ally act with remarkable quickness. Here Is an example even where the coffee habit has been one of long standing: "I had been a coffee drinker for 20 years, and until recently regarded It as one of the "stays of life,' " writes a Ten nesseo clergyman. "About a year ago an attack of malaria impaired my digestion and l began to use more coffee than usual, thinking it would help my system throw off the malady. During that year I suffered in describable agonies or nervous induces Uon. Finally I noticed that every time I drank coffee for dinner or supper I was much worse. I told my wife I thought It was coffee and that I would quit it and use hot water. Then I thought I would try the Postum we had heard so much about. "From tho very day I left off coffee and Introduced Postum I began to Im prove, and at the end of one single week I did not have even the slightest symp torn of nervousness and dyspepsia left. It Is many weeks now since then, and I have not only gained In flesh, but am en tlrely free from Indigestion and am strong and happy. My wife had been nervous and her stomach in bad condition, and when she saw the- change wrought In me followed my example and after using Postum a short time extremely beneficial results followed.
