An Important deal on upper Washing
ton street was closed yesterday when S.
yi. Blumauer, of the J. W. Sweeney Con
struction Company, now building a rail
road to Tillamook, purchased 50x100 feet
at the southwest corner of Fourteenth
and Washington street for $112,000. The
property, which is directly across Wash
ington street from the Portland Theater,
has 100 feet frontnge on Washington
street. It was purchased from Emmanuel
May, formerly of tho Union Meat Com
pany. The sale was mado through the
agency of Goldsmith & Company.
Two-story frame store buildings oc
cupy the site. These bring in a rental
of $550 a month and afford a good reve
nue on the amount Invested. Leases on
the stores extend for another year and
until their expiration Mr. Blumauer will
not plan any Improvement. When the
Tillamook line on which he is engaged
Is completed Mr. Blumauer will improve
the property for business purposes.
Value Almost louble.
This sale, but one of many big sales
recently negotiated on upper Washing
ton street, represents another instance
of the increase in values in property on
that thoroughfare. Mr. May held the
property for five years, having bought
it for $65,000.
Other deals closed in the same neigh
borhood within the last ten days are
the sale of 100x100 feet at the corner of

""baum yesterday for $85,000. The lot Is
occupied by an old frame building rent
ing for $450 a month.
The property is described as lot 7,
block 60. Couch Addition. It is not known
whether the new owner contemplates
improving the property but in the light
of the advancing prices of property In
the tmslnei-s district the deal is consid
ered a remarkably good one. The sale
was made through the agency of Chapin
& Herlow.
A sale in the warehouse district, near
the property recently taken under option
by the late Jerome B. Gossage, was made
yesterday at a figure which makes the
prices offered by Mr. Gossage seem very
high. W. II. Kesh, the jeweler, pur
chased a quarter block at the southeast
corner of Twenty-third and Wilson
streets, from H. B. Stout for $0000.
He also bought an undivided half in
terest in a half block at Twenty-first
end Roosevelt streets, also In the ware
house district, from Charles IDlerke for
$10,000. Both properties are unimproved
and were purchased as an Investment.
The sales were made through the agency
of Goldsmith & Company.
-Temblor Is Noticeable In Tall Office

A slight earthquake shock was felt in
Fortlarul aboxit 4:45 P. M. yesterday. It
was of brief duration and was noticed
chiefly in tail office buildings.
"The quake wemed to consist of a
flharp, almost vertical jolt, followed by
two milder waves,' Raid John McXulty,
nautical expert, in charge of the local
branch of the United States hydrographio

J'ORTWNU, Feb. 7. (To the Kriitor.l
What is the matter with this country,
anyway? Anything? Is there any valid
reason for all this hullabaloo, agitation,
accusation and fear lest somebody's
rights are forever lost and the country's
affairs actually turned over to the ene
mies of publk- rights and private inter
ests? "What are we In danger of that
it is necessary to listen eternally to the
professional "sentinel' whose duty, as it
seems. Is to warn thoughtless people of
the designs which all sorts of malefactors
are cultivating upon their liberty and
chattels? The eternal din along this line
-eases to le even interesting as a diver
sion, and one wonders why it continues
and when it will end.
If the country Is being hurt by exist
ing conditions, what class of our people
are the victims? What should be con
sidered lirst in the examination? Is it
the high price of living? Then, let me
see. There will Too & general admission
that the hardest times known since be
fore the Civil War, prevailed during the
years Intervening between 1893 and 1897.
But nothing is better remembered than
that at no time in our National history
have prices for all the necessaries of life
been so low as then or more difficult to
get. Indeed, the price -of wheat, flour,
butter, eggs, bacon, patatoes. wool, sheep,
cattle, horses, clothing, sugar and all
other articles consumed by our people,
poor as well as rich, was so low that the
cost of living became practically unbear
able and almost unable to meet. Soup
kitchens were in evidence everywhere and
the unemployed found refuge by the mil
lions in Coxey's army all on account,
so Mr. Bryan said from 10,000 "stumps"
of the very low prices which prevailed
for all necessaries of life.
To be sure, conditions are not perfect,
nor will they ever be while governments
are administered by the sons of Adam
with all their imperfections, but when
95 per cent of the people are better off
In every way than their fathers and
grandfathers were, why go into hyster
ics over visions of conjured disaster or
dreams of imaginary dissolution?
The railroads should be regulated in
many instances, to be sure, but there
was never a time in their history when
a man could go so far and with so much
comfort at so little cost as today, or a
time when so many people were able to
travel and do travel. Doesn't this mean
anything to the thinking person who
hears the blatant one howling himself

hoarse about the "tendency of the times ;
toward a general and necessary uprising ;
of the people in defense of their rights?
The cost of living is, indeed, high, but
the wheat-raiser is not growling about
the high cost of bread, nor the producer
of eggs and butter because the prices
of those necessaries of life reach sky
ward. The sheep-raiser is not growling
because he receives a high price for
his flocks nor the grower of hogs on
account of the frightfully high figure he
gets for his pork. Nobody is complain
ing, in fact, about the high cost of liv
ing in any case where the article in
volved Is produced by himself. The
farmer wants to sell his wheat for $1 a.
bushel and eggs for 50 cents a dozen,
but unless he buys sugar as cheaply as
when his wheat sold for 50 cents and eggs
for 15, there is a trust somewhere which
is driving the people to the wall, and.
so on.
Yet we have fine churches, high schools,
academies, colleges, universities, fine
trams and carriages, automobiles, aero
planes, streetcars which will carry you
a dozen miles for 5 cents, a splendid
climate and productive soil all over the
United States, healthy people forging
ahead in every possible line of industry,
everybody employed and a cry for more
and yet, the growler growls while the
howler howls and the insurgent Insurges
because he is a born insurger!
There are some people who are truly
thankful for the thousand and one bless
ings and advantages enjoyed in this day
and generation which were no part of
even the wildest-dreams of our ancestors
of past decades or centuries, and then
there are others born in the shadows
and living in an eclipse of gloom un
grateful, unhinged and unhappy. Along
this line it might be added that there are
actually men who claim to be consistent
and earnest Republicans, really attached
to the Republican party and its prin
ciples, who believe its leaders are such
an aggregation of dangerous men that if
they should assemble together and ex
press a few opinions, the result would
be the .undoing of all that the party
stands for! Let us pray.

Chinese Steward,
Ten silk. waiBts, ten cotton waists and
a bolt of silk were discovered, secreted
in the quarters of Captain Smith on
board the steamship Henrik Ibsen, ar
riving at Portland yesterday morning
from Hongkong and Japanese ports.
The discovery was made by customs
inspectors searching the vessel and the
contraband goods seized. Captain
Smith denied any knowledge of the
presence of the stuff in his room and
it is supposed that the articles had
been secreted there by the Chinese
steward or one of the servants.
Recent orders regarding strict search
of inward-bound stamships for contra
band articles, particularly opium, has
caused collectors and inspectors to ex
ercise particular vigilance. Collector
P. S. Malcolm, of the Port of Portland,
issued orders for a thorough search of
the Henrik Ibsen. While no "dope"
was discovered, the articles mentioned
were found secreted in the room of the
master. They were not enumerated in
the list of stores and did not appear on
the manifest of cargo. Under revised
statutes 2S-9. the stuff was contrabrand.
The Henrik Ibsen entered yesterday
with one of the largest cargaes brought
to Portland from the Orient since the
Norwegian steamships entered the
service of the Portland & Asiatic
Steamship Company.- While the value
of the cargo and the tonnage were ex
ceptionally large, the amount of duty
which will be paid at this port is small.
This is due largely to the fact that the
cargo is made up of crude stuff, princi
pally, and that little or no duty is
Sulphur forms the principal part of
the cargo of the Henrik Ibsen. Of this
there is 18,536 bags, taken on board at
Hokodate, Japan. Gunnies, Chinese
merchandise, tin and spices made up
the cargo. Not a single case of pine
apples appeared on the manifest, al
though it was expected that there
would be a large shipment of fruit
from Singapore.-
Railroad freight was short, there be
ing only a small amount of brushes,
curios,' straw braid and matting for
points in the East. Practically all of
this will be cleared from Portland.
The complete cargo on the . Henrik

their injurious action on the general health. S. S. S. is the one safe and

done. But the real ailment remains, and will
bring the real symptoms back a pa in, per
haps the- same as before, but very likely
leave the patient in a much worse condition.
I claim that nothing1 less than complete
eradication of the ailment can be a real cure.
I treat to remove the ailment, and not mere
ly the symptoms. I search out every root
and fiber of an ailment, and I cure to stay
I want every man who is afflicted with
any special ailment to come and talk with
me confidentially about his case. A word
of suggestion will often aid a patient to get
on the riKht road to a quick and lasting- cure
if his case is taken in time. Kven ailments
that have reached an advanced stage yield
readily to my meoMcines and distinctive meth
ods of treatment.
My treatment is absolutely pain
less, and perfect results can be de
pended upon in every instance. I
do no cutting or dilating whatever.
Contracted Ailments
Be sure your cure is thorough.
Xot one of my patients has ever
had a relapse after being dis

of treatment require.
