N REAL ESTATE
Sales for February Exceed
Those of Any Like Period
WHAT THE DEEDS SHOW
More Tlian Two Million Three Hun
dred Thousand Dollars Are the
Figures for the Month
Fobriiary. with only 23 business days,
holds tb yeord for the volume of real
estate transfers abore every other month
In the history of Portland. The total
sales for the past months, as shown in
the books of the County Clerk's office,
mount to $2,309,150. This Is the first time
that the 52,000,000 mark has been reached
In this city. The summary kept by the
Daily Recorder for the past two years
shows no month when the total monthly
business even approached this figure, and
it goes without saying that It was equaled
by no month previous to that time. j
An idea of the rapid Increase which has j t
been made in the activity of the Portland
market is given by observing that th )
Kales for February. 1105. amounted to only I
3502.760, or MoS.lSO less than one-fourth
those of the past month. The sales for I
the month of last January wore SMiVS.Sii. I J
The best record made previous to the j
month just closed was for last December. I
when the books showed transactions
amounting to $1.?02.WM. It is evident,
therefore, that the past month has ex
ceeded the best of its predecessors by al
How Recording- Is Done.
Even with these large flgures-the official
records arc much below the actual trans- , 4
actions. Many of the largest deals have J
been recorded at the usual fictitious j i
values, and this practice was even more j ?
In evidence during the past month than j I
usual. In fact, it has been customary for .
many buyers to conceal the real value of I I
their purchases, especially the railroads, j
which have been making extensive pur- '
chases and recording nearly all of them
In this way.
Dealers regard the heavy buying shown
In the February figures as a true indica
tion of what may be confidently expected
for the remainder of the year. The fig
ures were swelled by no exceptionally
large transfer, but reprosent activity that
was constant throughout the entire
month. It is also a fact that a majority
of the large deals of the past month have
not yet been recorded. Already enough
sales have been made and not recorded to
assure the March figures to be as great
as those of February. If large sales arc
so frequent throughout the rest of the
year, and there seems to be every indica
tion that they will be, the year 1005 will
establish a record twice as large as last
year, which was an advance over Its pred
ecessors. Big- Railroad Deal.
Yesterday a deal involving 5200,000 was
consummated by the Portland & Seattle
Railway Company, which purchased an
entire block to add to the terminal yards
already bought in North Portland. The
block Is at Fifteenth and Thurman streets
and is occupied by the warehouse of
Mitchell. Lewis & Staver.
The firm which sold has for some time
been considering changing the location of
its warehouse to the wholesale district of
East Portland. Some time ago an option
was secured upon block 5S of the Ladd
Instate, and this option was closed coinci
dent with tho sale of te other building
yesterday. The present warehouse will
be torn down and new quarters erected
on the site just purchased, which Is on
the south side of East Morrison street,
adjoining the Studebaker warehouse.
Another sale has just been made on the
East Side, F. W. Leadbetter purchasing
:in undivided two-thirds interest in a
block at Bast Morrison and Water streets
adjoining the Morrison-street bridge on
the south. The property was owned by H.
C. Leonard, who sold for $40,000. The re
maining interest is owned by the Green
East Side Transaction.
The Acme Mills Company yesterday se
cured six lots from the Montgomery es
tate, in Lower Albina. paying 512.000 for
the property. Two of the lots adjoin the
iplant the company has in Lower Al
bina, having 50-foot frontage on Railroad
street, 200 feet on Albina avenue and 50
feet on Goldsmith street. The other four
Jots are the south hnlf of the block, hav
ing a frontage of 100 feet on Railroad and
J-orlng and 200 on Albina avenue. The
Acme Mills Company will enlarge its
Russell & Blyth have completed the
preliminary plans for the 14-story sky
scraper which they will build at the
siortheast corner of Sixth and Stark
streets, as announced in The Oregonlan
Home time ago, and have engaged B. "Wls
lar Morris, Jr.. of New York City, to pre
;pare the specifications. Mr. Morris is
nlso the architect for the building now
meing erected hy wells-Fargo & Co. at
Sixth and Oak streets, and the two build
fings will be of equally high character.
The Russell & Blyth building will cover
a site 50x100 and will be the highest build
ang in the city. The firm has been
planning to build for some time and will
prepare to go ahead with the pro
ject soon after the plans have been com
pleted by Mr. Morris. Mr. Blyth will
leave about the end of the month for
England, where the firm expects to close
a large financial deal, and the work of
construction Is expected to commence
upon his return.
The Improvement of Sixth street is go
ing on very rapidly and the prices which
have been rising rapidly In the district
will be still further stimulated when the
Hussell & Blyth building is commenced.
The Wells-Fargo building is less than a
block from this site, and the Steinbach
property, which Is to be improved by
J. B. Yeon, Is at Seventh and Stark. The
property next to the Quelle, on the ad
joining block, was bought last week by
Mr. Yeon and two associates, who will
erect a large building upon it.
Tho contract for the two stories which
are to be added to the Chamber of Com
merce building has been awarded to David
"Williams. It is estimated that this addi
tion will cost about $100,000. The ninth
fioor will be occupied by the Commercial
Club, together with its present quarters
in the eighth story. The tenth floor will
be used for offices. With the improve
ments the Chamber of Commerce will be
not only one of the best, but also one ol
the highest buildings in the city.
J. G, Kilgrecn has been given the con
tract for erecting a two-story bricX
building on the property owned by the D.
P. Thompson estate at the northeast cor
ner of Third and Madison streets. The
structure will cover a quarter block and
be two stories high. It will cost between
$15,000 and $20,000.
NOT TO RETARD BUILDING
Joseph Buchtel Says Fire Limits,
East Side, Must Be Reasonable.
The committee appointed, by the East
Side Improvement Association to assist
in describing: new boundary lines for lire
limits In East Portland, including- Coun
cilman Sharkey, Joseph Buchtel and Dr.
C. H. Haffcty. will liave a conference
with a committee from the Council this
afternoon at 5 o'clock. Mr. Buchtel, an
old fireman, says that it is a problem to
say what territory .should be Included In
new limits so as not to retard improve
ment. That, he said, was the one thin?
to be avoided In fixing fire limits, but Mr.
Buchtel thinks brick structures should
be required, where they can be put up at
not too great expense, and nlso that there
should be some restrictions on wooden
structures to be erected in the district
between Grand avenue and the Willam
ette River. He advocates bulkheads con
crally under such wooden structures as
have been built and may be built here
after on piles and elevated foundation as
one preventive of the spreading- of fires
All phases of the question will be gone
over to the end that Improvements will
not be retarded, and yet thst reasonable
boundary lines and restriction be estab
lished. Every fill in East Portland is
found to increase fire protection in this
territory, and with all the fills prospective
and under way the insurance rates are
expected to be reduced materially as s
compensation for erecting more expen

Helen E. Ball has entered in the Fed
eral Court a -statement objecting to the
execution of the petition In bankruptcy
filed some time ago by Dr. Ralph C
Walker. Miss Ball claims that Dr. "Walk
er has fraudulently entered in his petition
a claim against him alleged to be due his

has furthermore concealed certain prop
erties which are in his possession and
transferred other properties immediately
preceding the filing of his petition In order

But for the fact that she is equipped

In the deep channel of the Columbia River

with Pilot A. A. Bailey at the whel. her
j cargo consisting of S00 tons of wheat and
Su'J.OOO fet-t of lumber. Approaching the
Jetty at the rate of 14 knots an hour, the
steamer refused suddenly toanswer her
helm. and. sheering off to port, plowed her
way clean through the row of piling that
forms the breakwater and onto the rocks
for a distance of 40 feet. The rocks arc
partly submerged, but nevertheless a por
tion of lh bow was raised sufficiently to
expose the kcfl.
Captain Ahlin was fearful that the swift
current would possibly drag the craft
from her perilous position, and for that
reason ordered the lifeboats swung ready
for launching on a moment's notice, and
the 15 passengers were Instructed what to
do In case the hull should threaten to
slide into the deep channel under the pro
jt'Ctlng stern. But, like the Geo. W.
Elder, which went on the rocks at Goble.
the Redondo hud found a solid resting
place, and it will probably require the
combined power of several tugs to dis
lodge her. The- passengers remained on
board over night, and yesterday morning
they were transferred to St. Helens on a
gasoline boat. They came to Portland
last night on the steamer T. J. Potter. J
and those who did not take the train will
make another start for their destination
