Judge Cameron stated, however, that

In Partnership With rhll Mctschan,
Acquires Half Block on North
Ninth Between Everett
H. R. Kincaid, editor of the Oregon
State Journal, at Eugene, is one of the
citizens of Oregon who Is very confident
of the future of Portland, and Is invest
ing heavily in property here. Yesterday
he purchased from Mm Lizzie "Wells two
three-story rooming-houses at the south
west corner of Yamhill and "West Park
streets the Beverly and the Southern.
This property has 50 fet frontage on
Yamhill street and 100 feet on west Park.
The price paid was JS.000.
Mr. Kincaid. In conjunction with Phil
Metschan, one of the owners of the Im
perial Hotel, has also Just concluded the
purchase of a half block on the cast side
of Ninth- streot, between Everett and
Flanders. This property was formerly
owned by the Pacific Coast Abstract
Company, P. Moran and "W. J. Miller.
It was a part of the property on which
options were obtained for the big ware
house project which has been partially
If not entirely abandoned. The selling
price of this property was $32,50). The
only buildings on it at present are some
residences of small value. Mr. Kincaid
.stated that If he retains the property for
as long ns six months he will construct
upon It substantial business buildings,
but that he might dispose of It before
that time. Both of these transactions
were made through the agency of A. F.
"I have held property in Portland for
35 years." said Mr. Kincaid last night,
"and I expect to keep money invested
here. I believe that Portland has the
greatest future' of any city on- the Pa
cific Coast I expect that Portland will
have as largo a population as San Fran
cisco. The citizens of this city did not
appreciate the advantages and opportu
nities open here until Eastern capitalists
began buying their real estate."

Rev. H. A. Bartlcn Denies James
Edmond's Aspersions on G. A. It.
PORTLAND. Oct. 23. To the Edttr.)-As
the press has given publicity te Mr. Bd
mond's attack on the character of the vet
erans of the Civil War In a recent speeeh
before the Washington and North Idaho Bap
tist convention, being myself a Baptist
clergyman ' and department chaplain of the
Oregon G. A- R-, the department oemniander,
T. E. Hills, has requested me to reply to
Mr. Edmond's statement In behalf of the De
partment of Oregon, G. A. R.
Will you permit a brief reply In year ex
cellent paper In defense of, the fair name and
personal character of the old soMlers, un
righteously aw I led by James Edmonds?
I am aaked who Is James Edmonds, wba has
recently slandered the old soldiers by dasI
fjlng them an the "polluted, steeped-ln-to-baeco-and-whtaky
veterans of the Civil War.""
Mr. Edmonds Is not a Baptist clergyman.
He was never ordained and sot apart to the
Christian ministry, and therefore he dees not
represent the spirit of our ministry. The
spirit of the ministry Is the spirit of Christ,
and the object of the ministry Is to seek and
to save the lost. The great work of reaching
men and reforming tiem can never be ac
complished by Mr. Edmondrf spirit and abus
ive language, which he recently flred Into
the souls of the old soldiers. Mr. Edmonds
Is only locally known, being the general mis-'
slonary of the American Baptist Pubttc&lUn
Society of the Sunday school department 4on
the Northwest Pacific Coast. But the did
soldlen have been known In all the" land for
40 years, and during this long time annualiy
at National encampments, as they- have
marched they have been honored by an ap
preciating people. - And why? Has it been;
mainly because theye were once brave soldiers
and saved the country? "Would the thousands
of our beit people at annual encampments
etand by the hour to witness an army of
"polluted, steeped-ln-tobaccc-and-whlsky vet
erans" paw by? No, never!
They are honored, not only because they
belonged to the great Union Army, but also
as a body they are men. Out of this noble
body of men the people of this great country
have chosen sir to be Presidents of the Uni
ted States many to be United States Senators
and members of Coqgress, many to represent
the United States in foreign courts, -many to
be teachers In our colleges and schools, thou
mds ordained and set apart to the Christian
ministry, thousands became honorable and
successful business men; many have come to
fame In state, many In the legal profession.
Tho Grand Army of the Republic has given
to the Nation and to the people a Memorial
day In memory of the dead. The G. A. R.
has caused the National emblem, to be placed
on every rchool building In the land. These
old soldlera by their presence have set on fire
the spirit of patriotism In all our schools.
Among them are many orators whom children
ana people are delighted to hear and to honor.
At the late- G. A. R. encampment hefd at
Denver on the day of the memorable march
of the veterans with -10,000 In line and with
63,000 people to witness, there was not a
drunken veteran seen on that great event.
The statement is a marvelous one and may
It not remain as a memorial In history f
what the Grand Army has been and Is In
fame and character? May It not also show
the high regard 53,000 people held of the old
soldiers as they marched, thousands of them
lor the last time?
In our own beautiful city there are old so,
dlera occupying high places In business, and
the professions. In the Christian ministry, the
legal profession, professors In our achools,
and not an old soldfer as a saloonkeeper In
the city. In our cemeteries are at rest many
heroes of many battles, many of them who
were pure and clean In character. Such com
rades as are remembered and beloved. Rev.
George IV. Gue, D. D.. chaplain One Hundred
